DEMOCRAT FREE FOR ALL

July 11, 2019

Candidates on both sides of the political aisle make promises that they never intend to keep. They do so trying to entice voters to “pull the lever” on their behalf. It’s nothing new. However, this round, the pledges and overtures go far beyond logic and reason for anybody that is not of the participation trophy generations. Thinking people must reject the fantasy statements and the candidates who make them in favor of saving our nation and our way of life.

Most of the programs include handouts that make no sense or are so broad as to invite uncontrollable fraud. Each entrant into the clown competition for president has made some offers that sound good to the takers of the nation, but terrible for the producers and can only lead to the collapse of our sovereignty and our democracy.

Aside from consulting the nearest wind sock on any given day or event, there are absurd verbal expulsions from virtually everyone seeking the highest office in the land.

Here are just some of the statements made on the campaign trail:

Proposed “War Tax” on families that don’t have at least one member in the military or having served in the military. Sounds good at the onset, but does not describe how far the family extends. There is no mention about honorable service, just service.

The government cannot keep track of who receives EBT benefits or who gets EIC credit. How can anyone in their right mind expect the government to track who has family members in the military. What happens if John joins the Marines after high school? Is his sister Sally exempt from the tax as long as she lives in the family home? Does the exemption continue after she is married?

At least one of the leftist idiots states loud and clear that if he becomes president, and if you don’t relinquish your weapons, you will be overcome by force and imprisoned. Mr. Swalwell has no respect for the Constitution or the attached Bill or Rights. Like most of those on the debate stage(s) mandated conformity to autocratic demands is the way of the future. Fortunately, Mr. Swalwell’s idiocy became clear to even him.

There is vast support among the Democrat candidates for decriminalizing illegal entry into our country. If that isn’t open borders, nothing is. No borders, no country.

If there is no cost, there is no value!

Almost all have advocated for free college tuition. It is simply an extension of the substandard learning process that has been the norm for the past 50 years or so. Continued indoctrination is necessary for some of the slow learners who were unable to accept Communism as the best socioeconomic system in their first twelve years of public education.

Medicare for all (some candidates include virtually every person within the confines of the 50 states, legal, illegal, temporary or permanent). Why not vacationers here on a visa?. This is inviting everybody with a hangnail to clog waiting rooms across the nation. No problem…the doctor’s office is climate controlled and no one can be turned away! Corey Booker says “It just makes sense”.

Taxpayer paid abortion – No matter how you view abortion, (murder, women’s reproductive rights or simply internal feminine cleansing), if there is no cost for irresponsibility there is no reason to be responsible. Hook up on Saturday night and up to nine months later you can have that growth inside you removed at taxpayer expense.

Voting without I.D. – This is about the most ridiculous thing that has ever been presented to a civilized society. Currently, in many states, there is nothing stopping someone from getting off a plane, a boat or crossing the Rio Grande (aka: Rio Bravo del Norte) into our southern desert on election day from going to the Motor Vehicle Department, getting a driver license to use as I.D., then driving on to the polls and voting. Yet, some of these same idiots want to exclude our military men and women serving outside the country on election day from casting their ballot.

Universal Basic Income – Proposals range from $500/mo. to $1,000/mo. given to every adult person in the U.S. No need to work or produce, the check’s in the mail. Actually, you need not even bother going to your mail box or cashing a check. Completely effortless! A government deposit will be made directly into your bank account on a specific date each month so that you can continue using your EBT card to buy corn chips and beer without interruption.

No consequence for breaking the law. No loss of rights for committing felonies; vote from prison. The Marxist/socialists, whether they say it aloud or not, want to make every non-politician completely beholden to a strong central government. Act the way we say or we’ll take away your subsidies.

Otherwise, all is free!

MUELLER: THE GOOD GUY, THE BAD GUY, THE GOOD GUY

May 31, 2019

Oh, what a roller coaster ride the past 2+ years have been. Apparently, as early as the late spring of 2016, well before the election, Democrats in politics, in the media and in the bureaucracy feared a non-politician attaining the highest office in the land. They shared near panic that a leader introducing the discipline and effectiveness of private business modality could disrupt their happy complacency.

Citizen Trump, candidate Trump and then President Trump repeatedly voiced that he had been spied upon; that he’d been “wire tapped”. He was loudly shouted down by the coordinating cohesive cabal listed above. Nary a day has gone by since the announcement of his candidacy without a publicly spoken or written word of aspersion regarding Donald Trump or an attack on one of his offspring.

Allegations, innuendo and bogus claims about his business dealings and campaign propelled liberal “news outlet” ratings and drew advertisers. Anti-Trump pundits ruled the airwaves. The more negativity expressed, the higher the ratings and the more readers/watchers became stronger in their political divisiveness.

People across the nation became plagued with mental health issues and acted out in ways that required (in some cases) clinical or institutional intervention. Students, having been drummed and drilled with capitalist and conservative invective for 12-16 years, sought safe spaces in which they could cower and commiserate with their like traumatized peers. Pharmaceutical sales for anti-depressants and anti-anxiety compounds skyrocketed.

All the noise and dissent toward the outsider culminated in multiple investigations seeking a crime to hang on to the unwanted candidate/president. From within came the recommendation for a special council of investigators and Robert Mueller was called to lead the unit. While Mueller, himself, was referred to as a Republican, he chose 17 partisan Democrat supporters for the in depth probe for scandal, corruption or any transgression that could lead to a charge of impeachment.

Conservatives in favor of the president called it a partisan Democrat witch hunt. Liberals lauded the investigative team as loyal to the flag and the country. Then came the close of the search. The report conclusions were first summarized by Attorney General William Barr, then the lightly redacted report was made public. The President called it vindication. His opponents called it conclusive of wrongdoing and cover up.

The report, as written, left a great deal to ambiguity. Barr was accused of being in the pocket of the president. Mueller, on the other hand, is a turncoat and maybe was intimidated, coerced or blackmailed in some way for not recommending prosecution or outright encouraging impeachment proceedings by the House.

So, for clarification, on May 29, Robert Mueller stood before a group of reporters and announced his findings. Once again, he left open multiple opportunities to interpret his findings. While legalese is meant to leave no question, the report and Mueller’s synopsis of it merely opened the gates for ongoing partisan bickering over the meanings of his wording. There were phrases such as, “there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” and “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so”. Of course proving nothing happened is virtually impossible. Even if continued investigations cannot find proof of nothing, the anti-Trump crowd will forever believe that there is something they are missing.

First the office of the Special Council was questioned by the Democrats because Mueller is a registered Republican and must be partisan and protective of the president. Then he was a hero in their eyes because the entire investigative team he picked were highly partisan Democrat donors and advocates. Then came the report that did not explicitly call for presidential execution via a ten man firing squad. However, passive aggressive and double negative inferences such as those above leave Gerald Nadler the convenience of continuing to disrupt the operations of government in order to pursue and destroy a duly elected president who is not of Washington ilk.

Basically, what Mueller said was after 2+ years and $35 million taxpayer dollars we could not prove that the president or anyone on his campaign or staff did anything criminal or even demonstrable for which we could make a legal charge. We did our level best to find anything beyond dropping his fingernail clippings on the carpet in the oval office, but could not.

President Trump has accomplished much with his undiplomatic ways and lack of congressional support and it infuriates the Democrats seeking absolute power and control over the government and make “We the people” subjects to their tyranny.

I’M TAKING MY FEW DOLLARS OUT OF THE BANK!

February 25, 2019

Before the next election, I will be burying a Folgers can with my few dollars of folding cash in the back yard for protection. I realize I may lose a couple of cents in interest on my lifetime savings, but it’s better than losing all of my lifetime savings.

The Marxist/Socialists embedded within our government and those running for office from the President down to dog catcher are promising free everything and guaranteed income to cover the cost of “free”. If enough of them are elected to offices across the land, Venezuela might look good.

The public indoctrination centers have done such a good job of instituting equality for all without concern for production or participation that about 70% of college graduates now expect all for naught. They are the generation that will be running the government and taking money from the rich (i.e. those with money in banks and investments) to help themselves under the guise of helping those of lesser means. It’s the only way to pay for all the free…for a while.

We, of sound mind, should all be deeply concerned. Win or lose, the field of progressives with Marxist ideals offering Socialist programs with identity overtones is a danger to all. Progressivism began in the late 19th century and gained firm root in the 1920s and 1930s. While many politicians still claim to be Progressives, their ideology has morphed into the socialism Karl Marx imagined.

Of late, the campaign promises, pledges and assurances are becoming more and more hideous to those of us with a respect for personal independence and responsibility. But any and all of their goals are possible given the driving force behind them. The past three to four generations have been taught that wishing yourself a good grade gives you a good grade; that showing up for class is enough to move one to the next grade or graduation; participating is sufficient to receive a trophy and effort is not considered a virtue. They are the ones who will vote themselves and their friends more and more “free” until the treasury cannot print money fast enough.

A quick, overview but nowhere near comprehensive or complete look at some of the proposals:

  1. Minimum wage for all workers – your value to the company or your employer is of no consequence. Being an employee warrants a “living wage” no matter what you contribute or produce.

  2. Universal Basic Income (UBI) – select people deemed by the ruling class as “needy” receive a guaranteed amount of money from the government regularly. This differs from SNAP, EBT, WICS etc. because there is no expectancy that the recipient will use the money to satisfy the needs of nutrition for children or adults. The guaranteed income is distributed to enhance the perceived wealth of the recipient.

  3. Free education – this is a classic. High school graduates, of any income level, are welcomed into state supported colleges and universities despite any academic abilities or achievements throughout their previous educational endeavors. There is no tuition paid to the schools or any financial institutions by the students thus there is no drive for performance.

  4. Medicare for all – no pay, no co-pay, no premiums. Absolute and complete medical care on demand for every person within the identified confines of the United States. It matters naught how or why a person arrived here. They are here and they are entitled to the best health medicine can provide. Every person has the right to health no matter how they have treated their bodies throughout life or how they will continue to treat their bodies.

  5. Borderless country – all people are people of the world. There should be no restrictions on migration throughout the Americas.

  1. The Green New Deal – beyond the wild dreams listed in 1-5 and below, this will surely bankrupt the country. Zero emissions by 2050 is an impossible Utopian dream. For example, current studies indicate that the manufacturing process for automobile batteries today emits more pollutants than what is produced by an internal combustion engine over 100,000 driving miles. While the life expectancy for batteries in an all electric car is currently hovering around 200,000 miles across the various manufacturers, the recycling and disposal of them is also environmentally harmful. Progressives will undoubtedly over-regulate the amount of pollutants allowed in the manufacturing and disposal processes to the point of self-defeat.

  2. Reparations – apparently the people of the U.S. have left too much money in the coffers of the Treasury Department. Leftists want to share that with people whose distant ancestors were enslaved over 200 years ago. They also want to include forgiveness payments to the indigenous people of the Americas, from South America to Canada including Greenland and Iceland. This may also be carried to residents of lands and countries in which our soldiers fought wars on behalf of our foreign brethren.

  3. Universal child care – exclusively for those women who didn’t take advantage of the free abortion to rid their bodies of an unwanted fetal mass. They can park the resultant child daily in a government run early indoctrination facility. This free service will provide parental separation services in preparation for the government run grade school system.

I’m not suggesting a run on the banking system right now, but these socialist policies will most certainly cause a monetary implosion that will affect everyone who has worked hard and saved a little something. Keep a close eye on the political maneuvering over the next few months. The indications of financial demise will be obvious.

These proposed policies extend well beyond, and are far more costly than, anything that has ever been tried, and those other attempts have all failed. Vladimir, Karl, Joseph, Benito, Mao, Fidel and Hugo would all be proud of the way the left is destroying the greatest socioeconomic/political structure man has ever devised.

Please excuse me but I have to go buy a can of coffee now.

 

WOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN

January 3, 2019

As we begin the new year we are once again in a partial government shut down over issues with a continuing resolution (CR). Congress convenes again today with a new majority that is dead set against anything , known and unknown, the current president proposes, requests or demands. With the final accounting of the election, they have vowed to obstruct, deny and delay for the remainder of President Trump’s current term.

We the people should demand that a government wide BUDGET must be passed each and every year instead of allowing our elected employees the opportunity to bicker about appropriation and spending for individual departments and agencies for short terms without regard for actual revenues. Then, after confirmation, approval and signature by the president they can proceed to enact laws, rules and regulations that fit within the parameters set by the revenue projections with all spending within the actual revenue collections and department expenditures held proportionate to that income. There has been no fiscal year budget passed since FY 1997! Thanks to both sides of the political aisle, this is why our national debt is rapidly approaching (if not exceeding by time of publishing) $22 Trillion.

In my career I had to deal with budgets for a few small companies and was the CFO of a private non-profit organization dealing with government contracts and grants. In all cases, it was imperative to work within a designated framework of expenditures against revenue. If business was down, then the spending had to be cut back proportionately.

When the government (federal, state or local) failed to agree on a budget for the upcoming fiscal year we had to adjust the expenditures agency wide to accommodate. The NPO was expected to continue performing the services per the conditions agreed by contract until the governing entity released funds. Many of the the grants were on a cost reimbursement basis (we had to spend the money then request reimbursement for performance). Not all of our dealings with the various agencies followed their fiscal year.

The federal government does not follow the same rules they set for contractors. They declare certain amounts for spending and hope the money comes in to cover those expenditures. If it doesn’t, they borrow from you and me or some foreign country obligating you and me to pay it back through our taxes. Work hard…work two jobs if necessary. Your Congressman needs your taxes.

Once again, the Democrats (and RINOs) in Congress are using our immigration system to stymie the government until they overwhelmingly destroy its foundation. This time, instead of working on the allowance side of the immigration problem, they are fighting the rejection of continued destruction. They are fighting against the president, not on principle but on presentation. They will not allow the man in the White House the opportunity to do something the right way. Instead, they want to continue using a system failed by their own initiatives as an item of debate without resolution.

Please read THE PROGRESSIVE HEAD FAKE and embedded link for related in-depth information.

If President Trump is the negotiator he claims to be, he will not allow this to happen on his watch. His solution is a wall, a big beautiful wall. Granted that is not an all inclusive end to the problem of illegal immigration, but merely a step toward an ultimate solution. It is the first step that must be taken, however, in order to work on a complete fix that will benefit citizens and immigrants.

Hold firm Mr. President.  It’s your only hope for respect and a second term to do what’s right for our country.

PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR USING MORE THAN TWO SQUARES

December 17, 2018

While on her Global Warming College Tour in 2007, Sheryl Crow told the audience that the average person should use “only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required”.

Though applauded by her fellow Al Gore and save-a-tree groupies, she was ridiculed by all who wish to do a thorough job of cleanup in the restroom. If you use only one or two squares it becomes very important that you use an abundance of warm soapy water to cleanse your hands…not environmentally recommended. Beyond that, the need for extra attention to clothes washing must be considered.

I’m reminded of this little star studded idiocy episode due to the multitude of President Trump investigations. It seems now that a group of highly partisan Democrats headed by Robert Mueller might be screening the sewers under the White House and Mar-a-Lago to identify if the president is, or has been, following the one or two squares rule. They’re seeking anything possible to use against him and/or his family or associates that CNN and MSNBC can use to fill their air time for 24-48 hours..

The latest lurch to non-conclusion is an investigation into possible inappropriate spending of inaugural committee donations. It seems that President Trump may have spent too little on inaugural balls, fluff and hoopla and gave too much of the donated money to charities providing relief services to hurricane victims.  IMPEACH 45! IMPEACH 45!

While I have admittedly received more than one deserved ticket for excessive speed, I generally follow the local, state and federal laws. I expect others to have similar respect for our laws and the enforcement of them. If President Trump or Michael Cohen or Hillary Clinton or Lois Lerner or Charlie Rangel or any members of any of the myriad alphabet agencies under the executive branch or any group or individual throughout our government are, or have been, subverting our laws they must be punished. The statute of limitations should include, but not exceed the perpetrator’s lifetime!

The law must be applied equally to members of all political parties and just discipline must be carried out. Likewise, any prosecutorial misconduct must also be harshly punished.

For nearly 26 months now, our current president has been under constant siege.  The swamp creatures are seeking anything…anything…on which he might be held criminally liable. From collusion to crapping, thus far no evidence has been presented that he has done anything different from any of his predecessors of any political party or governmental position. He is despised because he is an outsider and the insiders want to get rid of him.

If there is any severe bending or breaking of any law by any of our elected officials or the bureaucrats whom they hire, there should be swift justice meted. I’m not referring to a verbal or even written reprimand or censure put into a file and forgotten. I’m calling for punishment that cannot be waved in front of, and lauded by, fellow party members as a badge of honor. In my view, a lengthy stay in general population at the medium security United States Penitentiary, Fort Leavenworth is an apt adjudication for those who have abused their fiduciary responsibility.

Continually searching the sewers of Washington D.C. for evidence of double use of poop paper when there is no direct tie to the president is ridiculous, wasteful of both taxpayer money and government resources and, at this point, needless. It is time to wrap up the politically motivated special counsel so that congress and others can get back to their regular and normal in-fighting and wastefully spending our tax dollars.

If evidence is available, after more than two years of intense investigation, that President Trump unnecessarily used four squares, send him to Kansas. Otherwise Mueller must shut it down and let Trump continue making America great again even if he’s unconventional or not presidential in his approach.
