DONALD TRUMP THE DICTATOR

February 5, 2018

I’m sorry, but I keep retrieving “information” from left-of-center sources. You know, the ones the president deems fake news. I find their “truths” most often devoid of facts while filled with bias, speculation and ungrounded opinion. Generally it is amazingly contradictory to what I accept as true after a little research.

I have a tendency to probe further when I find something that is out of whack from what I have come to believe or even too close to what I want to believe. I chase rabbits down holes where most people would twist an ankle and limp away without regarding the overall cause or effect of the depression before I form conclusions. My writings are often days after the fact because I want them to be correct, not speculative and opinion drawn. Yeah, I’m that kind of different.

Recently, I have concentrated on the talking heads who spout that Donald Trump is a dictator. Again, there is no substantiation for the sentiment, just the accusation. It’s like calling someone a racist, without recognizing that the person is of mixed race or part of a family comprised of many races, just because there is a disagreement of policy or conviction. The dictator appellation is always thrown out by people who don’t understand a dictatorship. They are the same people who advocate for the Castro brothers, Kim Jung un, Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. They ignorantly embrace socialism and communism believing either governing and economic system is better than a capitalist free society because that is what they’ve been taught in school.

They are the people who applauded President Obama for unconstitutionally enacting prohibitive regulations on their and our lives because he is charismatic. They are the people who believe it is better to be dependent on government than it is to be responsible for their personal well-being. They are the generation(s) still living with their parents because whatever income they derive, is worthy of gifts only for themselves. They would prefer using the family car to owning and maintaining their own. Allowing mom or dad to pay the the insurance premium is what parents are all about.

They are the same lemmings who do the grunt work on behalf of multi-millionaire community organizers and billionaire subversives who’s goal is to ultimately subjugate them. To them, causing occasional social disturbance with physical violence for $10 or $15 an hour is preferable to an eight hour shift and regular income.

We have seen a tremendous change in society over the past few decades as the public school teachers and college professors spend more time and effort advocating for gender confusion and social justice than they do educating students. What we now have is generation after generation of youth who cannot read their high school diplomas (even if they receive one), but know it is racist to point it out…no matter what their heritage.

What they have is an ignorant love for dictatorship because they don’t understand what it is. However, they will protest it when it comes upon them. That generation will wish Donald Trump was still, or again, their president.

EPA AND DOE RULES HARM THE ENVIRONMENT

July 21, 2015

For years now, I have been ranting about the rules, regulations, edicts and other mandates made by the government (3 administrations) that do more harm than good for the environment, human dignity or mankind in general. Now it is beyond nervous laughter. It’s serious.

There is a very wide gap between reasoned conservation and ludicrous power wielding. Yet, the ignorant enthusiasm of environmentalists and government know-naughts allows them to jump that chasm with closed eyes.

Forests throughout the West burn violently each year sending almost as much pollution into the air as the fleets of jets and limos headed for an Al Gore spearheaded global warming convention. The fires kill wildlife, cause some to flee their natural habitat and make some furry creatures invade residential areas or regions where there is no food to sustain life. Beyond the immediate, it takes decades for the devastated territories to regain their life sustaining camouflage and nourishment. Why? Simply because a few misguided individuals believe that thinning trees and clearing a forest floor disrupts nature and harms the natural ecosystem.

Thus, brush clearing is prohibited in many areas. Thank you to the EPA and the dunderheads who lobby for untenable environmental controls.

Water conservation activists campaigned heartily for low flow shower heads and low volume toilets to save the valued and limited supply. Yeah, that’s working well. In order to get the shampoo out of your hair, you now have to stand and let the water gently trickle across your scalp for about a day and a half. Then after rinsing, according to the instructions on the shampoo bottle, you must repeat.

And the toilets today. Low volume = double flush. That means about one and a half times the water it used to take. Additionally, after the second flush and fill you have to use a brush and clean the bowl. That may mean an additional flush to clean the brush. Low volume toilets are working well, too.

Singer, Sheryl Crow, once suggested at a global warming affair that a “one square” restriction be imposed for every porcelain throne event. She failed to grasp the concept of water needed to clean the crap off your hands after using the one square. Eh, that can be written off as an unintended consequence. Save a tree, lose an agricultural field.

So now, according to The Hill.com, the Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing a 3.1 gallon limit on each dishwasher load. The link above illustrates the results of ignorant government bureaucrats setting unreachable goals and mandating their compliance.

I don’t care if you cause sparks to fly and wires melt at every wind driven or solar powered electrical generating station in the nation to super-heat the water for your dishwasher. After killing the bacteria you need to rinse it away or consume it in the future.

MANDATORY VOTING

March 21, 2015

On Mar. 18, 2015, Obama proposed that it might be transformative if everybody was mandated to vote. (Anything, anything, that changes the structure of this great nation that he seems to dislike is a good thing in his mind.) He said it should be easier to vote, not harder. That pesky Constitution of ours might make mandatory voting a problem. But that doesn’t really seem to be a hurdle for him.

Yes, it would be great if more people took the time to absorb the information necessary to make a cognizant choice at the polls. However, the majority of people today are so self-absorbed that they don’t read the news or follow what happens in the political world. Reading is a real struggle for over 40% of high school graduates. And, how can they pay attention to informative programs when Triple-Headed Magnetic Robots from the Planet Zoom-Zoom is available on YouTube or the latest celebrity is trending on Facebook?

Obama wants them to vote because they are easily influenced. If party “D” tells them everybody will get free stuff and that party “R” is racist, bias, mean-spirited, wants to burn their churches and demean the women, then party “D” has captured a voter. That’s what he wants, nothing else.

He said, “Disproportionately, Americans who skip the polls on Election Day are younger, lower-income and more likely to be immigrants or minorities”. He speaks not, necessarily, about legal immigrants. He seems interested just in the low-income, low-information, low-motivation population who can be commanded by a few sound bites endlessly memed over twitter.

By contrast, I suggest that we make it a bit harder for people to vote since the ignorance of some can have a devastating effect on us all. Perhaps a civics test to acquire a voter registration card is in order. Definitely, proof of citizenship should be enforced.

Why should our elections be decided by those who only want to take money and benefits from various government agencies?  Right now they outnumber those whose performance and tax contributions fund the government. It is one reason for the continued deficit that is driving us toward the bankruptcy of Greece and struggles of Italy with spending at 115% of GDP.  Why should our elections be influenced by foreigners who may return to their home country once the election outcome is announced?

The money that goes into elections is simply to manipulate the pliable minds of the uninformed, thus undecided. Making voting mandatory will not reduce the billions spent on elections, it could well increase it. The need to make some people accept lies and to dominate the mush minds of many can be costly. The greatest marketing tool known is saturation, because there is an implied credibility with repetition.

Once again, Obama has it all wrong!

COURTS AND IDIOTS

March 7, 2015

Both of Obama’s signature Marxist moves, Obamacare and Amnesty-for-All, are due to face some strong headwinds this year. Court challenges will stall them for a time. Public opinion on the other hand, not so much.

A February Rasmussen Report shows that across a broad realm of Gruber’s finest, 26% believe that the president should have the ability to ignore adverse court decisions if he wants to. That figure is 43% among a self-defined Democrat subset. Another oblivious 15% cannot comprehend the consequences and are vulnerable to vote for elite legal disobedience. These blind and ignorant fools are willing to empower a tyrant!

Many of these idiots will be drawn to the polls with cigarettes and candy. As long as public schools turn out uneducated bobbleheads, it will only get worse. The promise of more free stuff will cause them to vote Democrat until they realize, if they ever do, that fair and equal really means subpar and indentured.

Get out the bailing buckets, folks. This ship is sinking fast.

THE CONSTITUTION V. CENTRAL GOVERNMENT

January 3, 2015

There are ways for government to benefit the citizens.  The U.S. Constitution delineates those ways.  There are also ways to build a government that controls the citizens.  Governing via the teachings of Karl Marx is one such way.

We, of the current retiree generation, had the opportunity to see government work in ways that provided conditions rewarding education, hard work and personal responsibility. We are now seeing the very opposite. We, as everybody should, are seeing a government that remarkably defeats those conditions.

The continuing under-education of our children and grand children is evident when the large picture is viewed. Where the United States was once touted as being #3 across the three important academic categories of Math, Science and Reading, and striving to become #1 in all three, today’s picture is quite different. Math/Science/Reading These charts show our current rankings. Math/Science/Reading 2010 shows the standings as of 2009. There was a brief comeback in 2009 and the U.S. was rated #19. We now rank #26 across the three academic disciplines and the downward spiral continues.

The growing government involvement in education over the past 5 decades indicates enlightenment through public education is not promising for future generations. Today’s and future students will know all about how man has changed the environment, but won’t know how to remedy the change. They will know how to put a condom on a cucumber and where to go for an abortion at 11 years old if the condom fails in real life. They won’t, however, be able to count back the correct change if the power goes out at your local fast food restaurant.

Hard work – forget about it. Those born in the 1980s and later are taught that success is axiomatic with attempt. If you say you tried, you get a good grade in school, pass the class and advance. Translating that ethic to the workplace is not possible and many choose to take unemployment insurance, Welfare, WIC, SNAP and EBT payments as entitlement for trying.  The government encourages it.

With the collapse of the aerospace program in the mid-1970s, laid-off, highly educated engineers took jobs in retail and fast food industries to support their families and pay the bills until jobs in their professions again became available. Some even became “trash men”.  Any job was worth working. Welfare was a last resort. Pride and ethic caused them to continue striving.

A strong central government with tyrannical leaders is not the right direction for the longevity of this nation or our people. We need to re-read the Constitution, reading it for its intended content and meaning, not for how it can be interpolated to fit a Marxist/socialist agenda. Let us once again allow individuals and states the responsibility for achieving self respect, self improvement and economic betterment and return the government to governing.

I wish you a great new year and hope more informed and reasoned voting is possible in the coming elections.
