DEMOCRATS NEED TO FIND A MESSAGE

July 7, 2017

I love it! I listen to Democrat party leaders, spokespersons and pundits commenting on their own organization. I read newspaper articles and blog postings from all avenues of the political spectrum. Honestly, I spend much of my leisure time with FOX, but often take in the challenging viewpoints of CNN, MSNBC and the three old and tired broadcast stations. Occasionally, I listen to talk radio. It matters naught what is on or who is speaking, the theme continues to be that the Democrat party needs to find a message the American public cares about. Republican and Democrat pundits reiterate the same thing, “the Democrats need a message”.

Wow! That tells me everything I need to know about the party whose members describe it as “the oldest voter-based political party in the world”. They’re lost. They have nothing too offer; they need a message. They have no cohesive direction or thoughts regarding what is right for you or the country. They have no convictions to share before any election. They don’t even care, they just need to find a message, then they might work on the rest.  Perhaps they’ll just promote the new message without regard for carrying it out.

Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t a political party or politician start with a reason for being, then work on achieving that objective? Wouldn’t it be nice to find a person or party that has defined a goal for the nation that they can proudly announce and run on? And then, of course, follow through to accomplish the stated goal.

Politicians today, on both sides of the aisle, are so consumed with winning elections; so oriented on planting their butt into a seat of power that they must manufacture a cause. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous or meaningless it is, as long as it resonates with their constituents. Identify a heartwarming cause. Coin a slogan. Promise the minions anything but get into that prestigious and enviable position.  Then you can relax, forget the promises and chug along with the daily flow. Spend ¾ of your time campaigning for the next election to maintain your new job. Stop by the chamber and cast a vote or two occasionally (you need not spend any time reading bills, just ask the veterans within your party how they think you should vote). Then go out and raise some more money for the DNC and yourself.

You can bet that as soon as the Democrats find a message they will use it to raise funds to get someone elected. Once defined, the media will carry that message on every front page as a headline and every cable and broadcast program until it becomes believable. Those public indoctrinated educated idiots won’t understand that they are entrapping themselves into subservience to the elite as they lap up the free kool-aid.

Watch out! They will find that repeatable jingle or phrase. Once they do, it is all you will hear until the next round of votes are in. It will obsolete “Make America Great Again”. When you hear it enough, fake news is the truth. No matter what the audible surface words are, you can bet the subliminal message is “Put Democrats in Power. Despotism and Socialism is what you really want”.

Your income will drop.  Your taxes will rise.  Your rights will be legislated away.  The national debt will grow.  Then, the only difference between the U.S. and Venezuela will be the primary language.

MULTICULTURAL ACCOMMODATIONS ARE DISRESPECTFUL AND OFFENSIVE UNLESS THEY ARE MANDATED BY LIBERALS

January 10, 2017

Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008 San Juan, Puerto Rico

The term ‘Bizarro’ is an informal expression used to describe a situation that is so contorted it requires a person to cock their head to one side, shake it and take another look. The works of M.C. Escher could definitely be called Bizarro for they visually defy all reason and logic. To look at them critically can be disturbing to the normal mind and cause seizures in others.

The world today looks more like an Escher drawing than reality. We have become Bizarro World, USA.

What confusing times we live in now. In one case, a white man wearing dreadlocks in the inner city constituted cause for a beating by four black men. The bold hairstyle was, to them, considered unacceptable “cultural appropriation”. The unwritten and ever changing liberal doctrine, does not allow for some people to incorporate diversity into their lives.

On the other side of the liberal coin, if you live in California, Arizona or Texas no matter what your race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or country of origin you must celebrate Cinco de Mayo by drinking tequila and eating tacos and nachos on May 5. Otherwise, you’re a racist. However, don’t wear a sombrero to a masquerade party on Halloween because the head wear depicts a negative stereotype of Mexicans.

No longer do military men and women have to conform to a dress code. Uniform is no longer uniform. Turbans, hijabs, beards, dreadlocks, cornrows and twists are now acceptable personal hairstyles and grooming modes while in service to the nation. Those personal displays are for religious and cultural accommodations. Tradition has changed. Wearing a Star of David or a cross in plain view remains verboten.

At the current rate, I fear that soon, learning to march in unison, to work together and as a team, will no longer be a part of the military regimen. Perhaps saluting (a sign of respect to superiors) will also be abandoned.

The system of rules and regulations, that is and maintains discipline within the military, is eroded. In the military ranks it is devastating. It is another aspect of Obama and his administration diminishing the superiority of our armed forces. Rapid and constant change only creates disruption and chaos.

I hope that when President-elect Trump says he wants to make America great again, he means to restore those values and traditions that contributed to our imperfect but admirable history. Blocking illegal immigration and expelling the criminal element is a start. Screening immigrants to allow those who can enhance the country with their intellect, education and knowledge along with those among the most needy and persecuted will benefit and empower all. It is the perfect second step to comprehensive immigration reform. Those are the traditions of our history that the recent miserable, Marxist, socialist First Couple have marred and destroyed.

There are ten  days remaining before a new administration can begin rebuilding the economy, creating jobs, restoring civility and common sense and well, generally righting the many contemptuous and destructive acts of the past eight years. Democrats in congress are ready to make the transition back to normalcy as miserable and rugged as possible.  They just don’t seem to comprehend that elections have consequences.  But that’s the way they demonstrate their compassion, inclusiveness, understanding and acceptance.

 

 

 

MORE LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE HYPOCRISY – THERE’S ALWAYS MORE

November 19, 2016

This could be any of a number of celebrities or college students. It is simply an illustration showing how the limousine liberals contradict themselves and how the players justify the righteousness of their contradictions.

While claiming to be an all inclusive progressive and promoter of the LGBTQ lifestyle, Lena Dunham once stated she would move to Canada if Trump was elected president. Well, Trump won the election. But now that the time has come to pack her bags and head North, she has reneged in typical liberal fashion.

“I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there,” “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she said.

Yet, instead of heading for the safety and sanctity of another country as promised, she boarded a jet to whisk her away to the peace and tranquility of Sedona, Arizona. (For those unfamiliar with Sedona and the surrounding countryside, the town is located in a canyon encircled by walls of beautiful red sandstone, rocks and evergreens. At an elevation of 4,300 feet, it is quite unlike the Phoenix megalopolis or what most people consider the arid Arizona landscape.)

Sedona is the centerpiece of Oak Creek Canyon. Over the past few decades, the area has become an “artsy community” aka, a folksy liberal bastion. It is now known for its arts and crafts and the spiritual, emotional and chimerical retreats that abound. The rocks talk to you and guide you on your pathway through life. They help heal the emotional scars and counterpose the trauma accumulated on your life journey to this point.

So when Ms. (or Ze or XM or TV, or whatever) Dunham recognized she was not wanted in Canada either, she chose a safe place here in the U.S. What I find particularly notable is that the all accepting and all inclusive Dunham chose an area of exclusive ethereal retreats. One can rent a cabin in Sedona or Oak Creek Canyon (we’re talking near primitive log cabin) for about $200 per night during the off season. Classes or workshops to align one’s inner self or attune and harmonize one’s spiritual being range in price from $200 to upwards of $2,500. You won’t find many of the rejected poor there, unless they are cleaning the rooms or serving the elite celestial guests. Those people commute from Cottonwood or Verde Valley, about 25 miles away.

So, once again we see the hypocrisy of the progressive movement. When things don’t follow the natural order as prescribed by them, they riot and cause extensive damage to fellow individuals, public and personal property. As an alternate, those who can, spend thousands or millions of dollars having others pamper them (reference Barack Obama for verification).

PERMISSION GRANTED

July 18, 2016

Thanks in large part to our Community Organizer in Chief, ambushing police and riots are now commonplace. Violence abounds. There is unrest in every pocket and every major city across the nation and it is seemingly being promoted by our current administration and endorsed by his justice department.

Each time there is an incident in which innocents are killed, President Obummer addresses the nation and two things happen. First, there is an insincere placating to the families involved. Second, and almost within the same sentence, comes a statement about how Muslims or blacks (depending on the specific situation) have been oppressed since the beginning of time and therefore righteously rebelling against white men and police is justified and acceptable. He is effectively granting permission for violence and killing.

There are other forces contributing as well. If it isn’t directly political as in Hillary escaping an FBI criminal investigation where Director Comey publicly justified indictment yet set her free without such recommendation or Donald Trump hurling true but volatile remarks, it’s Black Lives Matter projecting animus toward law enforcement or the New Black Panther Party (one of the president’s favorites along with The Muslim Brotherhood) calling for the killing of all whites and cops. As soon as that settles, our president finds the words to enflame another situation.

This happened in Dallas recently because of two incidents involving police officers and black men. I have reviewed the publicly available videos of the shootings in both Baton Rouge. LA and St. Paul, MN. According to the footage made public, both might be considered questionable shootings. But that assessment is made on limited information.  I was not there for either and felt no fear for my own life.  We’ll know more as time develops the stories.

As of this writing, the police death toll in Dallas is five with seven other officers wounded. The gunman wearing an armored vest. An ambush in Baton Rouge has left three police officers dead and several wounded.

Police patrol and do their job enforcing laws with trepidation now because approaching any suspect can mean their death or maiming. Simply being on the street has seen 8+ of America’s brave lose their lives in the past two weeks. Thus, they act quickly and with angst. The reasonable concern for their own lives causes rapid aggression and reaction without forethought. The recent spate of ambushes can only cause quicker to reaction to a sudden movement or refusal to comply with their commands.

Radicals are taking over in anarchy, without forethought but with direction and guidance, subtle or outright, from the leaders of national organizations local authorities and our president and his justice department.

At least one report says that Democrat Cleveland Mayor, Frank G. Jackson, has issued a “Stand Down” order to his police force during the Republican convention. Essentially, he has given protesters permission to riot in the streets. It worked so well in Baltimore!

And, like Baltimore, this usually results in looting and burning local businesses. Tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary destruction is likely to occur in Cleveland. The anarchy is escalating and currently looks like it will not stop soon. The disregard for law and order generally associated with third world and socialist and monarchal governed (redundancy acknowledged) countries is here.

AND SO IT BEGINS…OR CONTINUES

April 18, 2016

For years now, since I first read about colleges allowing women and men to access the restroom, locker rooms or shower facilities of their choice, I have questioned on these pages how it could occur in our society. I even (jokingly) voiced that if I were younger, I might take advantage of the rules and decide to “get in touch” with my feminine side.

I have expressed concern for those pranksters who would take advantage of such a situation as well as sexual deviants and predators who might use the Internet to spread uncomely still or video images, or worse. I have been fearful for women and children who might be genuinely traumatized by these perverts while dressing, showering or attending to normal bodily functions and expecting privacy to do so.

There is no way to enforce the laws now on the books in Seattle and many other cities. Stationing a guard or even law enforcement personnel outside or even inside every public facility (libraries, public restrooms, schools, municipal buildings, etc.) is infeasible. Certainly, having a monitor two buildings away isn’t good enough to allow a meaningful response. And, dentifying the true gender confused person is nearly impossible.

The foods we eat are often laden with taste enhancements, chemical curing, antibiotics, growth and development hormones that sometimes also alter the human makeup. We are bombarded with medications, mandated vaccines, laboratory created or modified food and drinks daily. Some of the modifications are beneficial, but the side effects may not be discovered, recognized or acknowledged for decades or generations. Adjectives such as genetically modified and growth enhanced and geoengineered should be suspected, questioned and avoided where possible when choosing our foods.

Even the air we breathe contains unnatural substances that effect mental, emotional, psychological and physiological changes.  Is early onset Alzheimers still a wonder when government approved aluminum (one of the primary causes) is released into our atmosphere daily?  <link>

Because of these common but unnatural influences, I have to agree that there should be some accommodations for those people who are unable to accept and appreciate the gender to which they were born. The facilities should be as separate and distinct as those designated for men and women. Where none yet exist, it is suggested that the accommodations for the gender of their birth be used.

I don’t believe there is a conscious will to depart from the norm. As listed above, it’s the outside influences that cause the diviations. They may be direct ingestion, injection, inhalation or even cutaneous absorption that cause the mutations. The adulterations may be recent or genetically inherited, but the changes are real. Though they may have no ill intentions, those suffering from the anomalies do make life uncomfortable for normal human beings in areas where gender privacy is expected.

The stories have begun. Unfortunately, they will undoubtedly continue until sanity returns to government and reason once again triumphs over politics. A couple of quick examples include:

A man in Seattle challenged the new law of “acceptance” by entering the locker room at a public pool and undressing. When confronted by the staff on hand, he simply exclaimed “the law has changed and I have a right to be here”. Even the police were unable to discourage him or remove him because to do so would deny him his rights according to the newly enacted law. Any trauma caused to the women and young girls by the law is theirs to be borne.

A man calling himself Jessica and designated as a “dangerous offender”, entered the otherwise safe zones of women repeatedly. Over time he sexually assaulted women, a five-year old girl and raped a mentally challenged woman. The man claimed to be transgendered.

This is the New World Order we can expect with liberal progressives in charge.
