GET ELECTED TO CONGRESS AND VOTE FOR YOURSELF

November 27, 2018

Compared to men and women in uniform who willingly risk their lives to retain our way of life and give citizens around the globe humanitarian opportunities, our government elite are excessively compensated. For instance, a U.S. military member with a pay grade of E-6 (five earned pay grades above entry level) having given more than two years service to our country receives a base pay of only $2,802/mo.($33,264/yr.) This is scheduled to be raised for 2019 by 2.4% to a whopping $2,869/mo. A serviceman’s work schedule includes readiness twenty-four hours a day and often includes weeks on end without a stand down.

Compare that to the average Amazon carton handler who now earns $15.00/hr. That’s 2,580/mo. or nearly $31,000/yr. for placing boxes on a conveyor belt 8 hours a day.  When the bell rings ending the shift, they’re outta there!  An over-the-road trucker earns an average of $23.00/hr or almost $78,000 annually if they really go at it.  Consider what the average retail store manager is paid.  Good ones make approximately $46,000 a year.

Military accommodations often consist of living in tents, bathing in streams or ponds when available with clothing changes welcomed whenever possible. Granted, they do receive an extra stipend when deployed to areas or subjected to situations where death is imminent.

Why should congressional members protected by the secret service and capitol police make so much more?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears designer ensembles costing more than the average soldier makes in a month to her campaign venues. While campaigning, she has been seen wearing outfits of estimated cost exceeding $3,500 including shoes with a price tag of $625. Though she dresses for success, she’s whining that she cannot afford to live in the city or suburbs surrounding her new job.

Not even seated yet, the socialist darling of the left is suggesting legislation that would give congressional members a housing allowance in excess of the freshman base pay of $174,000. And, the members vote themselves raises at will. *Congress is required by Article I, Section 6, of the Constitution to determine its own pay.

Some current members, known to sleep in their offices and bathe in the gym locker room (not the Potomac River), have suggested a housing allowance while in session amounting to $2,500 per month.

Returning to reason perhaps we, the American voters, should consider something along the lines of a government housing facility for our downtrodden elected leaders like the projects offered by H.U.D. There are numerous vacant government owned buildings in and about Washington D.C. that could easily be converted into dorms or apartments.

For those choosing this option, the accommodations might be paid for by deducting $1,500 – $2,500 per month ($18,000 – 30,000/yr) from the base we now pay them. Nancy would consider it just “crumbs”. Most of them can probably scrape by on the remaining measly $144,000 per year. A transportation allowance of $5.00 per round trip to and from the dorm and capitol could be an additional benefit for consideration.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s next proposal is probably for a congressional clothing allowance and meal per diem to go along with the housing allowance. After all, we must redistribute the wealth from those who worked hard to earn their bounty. Soon thereafter, I’m sure, she’ll and the others will consider working for the people who elected them instead of what they can do to benefit themselves.  Yeah, right!

Congressional staffers and interns live and commute under the same circumstances and seem to get by on their pay of $30,000 – $85,000 per year without such perks. And they do much, if not most, of the work for which the elected elite receive their salaries.

PROMOTING “TDS”

August 1, 2018

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a real and present mental health problem. TDS is now being treated by health care professionals under the name of Trump Anxiety Disorder because derangement is a negative term. The use of negative terms in today’s society is, in itself, enough to trigger highly emotional reactions that require professional mental health therapy.

It is a product of at least four decades of public indoctrination centers promoting liberalism. Fragilizing (coined term) society is a primary mission for the “institutions of education”. By distorting language terms to soften their effectiveness allows for exploitable ambiguity. For example: Steering youth first, then adults, from using terms such as boy/man and girl/woman to gender neutral terms like person homogenizes the individual. Removing a person’s individuality removes any incentive to excel or even succeed. Highest honor awards are perceived to demean all lesser colleagues and therefore every attendee must receive a trophy or certificate of participation without ranking.

The aggregation of youth held captive and brainwashed for three quarters of each year over a 12+ year time frame are those most affected by the psychological vexation. Social engineering to societal neutrality destroys personal incentive and self worth. Without self worth, adolescents are prone to extreme anger, suicide or sustained drug use to compensate for their lack of uniqueness.

This is contradictory to what our current president presents. His ideals include working hard, accomplishing, achieving and appreciating and respecting the outcomes. To younger generations, this is opposite of what they’ve been fed throughout their school years. They only know that they are equal and they deserve…without effort. They matriculated through their early years by showing up for class, at least by attending fairly regularly. Their testing, if any occurred, was graded not on correct answers or knowledge of the subject at hand, but on the student’s ability to embrace and regurgitate the personal viewpoints on the subject expressed by the teacher.

The aforementioned societal equality is why the X, Y (aka: Millennial) and Z (aka: Centennial) generations are so inclined toward socialism. They are used to having everything handed to them without putting forth any effort to achieve on their own. They believe (because they’ve been programmed to believe) that equality is a right. They cannot understand, because they cannot recognize through abstract thought process, that equality for all is truly subsistence for all. Further yet, there is a reluctance to accept that equality for all is a false and undeniably Utopian ideal.

Every societal structure has an elite governing body. With socialism and communism that elite body distributes and redistributes any wealth available among the recipients. That body of elites, due to human nature, will always take a bit more for themselves, leaving less for redistribution. Socialism is the elimination of any middle class, not all classism. Socialism, at it’s best, is the production of two very discordant classes.

The political bent of the majority of public school teachers and college professors and instructors is constantly projected into the malleable minds of those whom they are charged with educating. Where once the schools promoted “work hard and be all you can”, the new slogan might be “sloth in and be whatever you claim you are”. Additionally, what the kids of today get out of school is low self esteem and the ability to identify as a victim for any reason they deem. True education is a wayward by-product of the liberal mind molding process.

Given the upbringing of the ascendants to adulthood and those of recent adulthood there is little question why they consider President Trump a foreboding and threatening figure. He expects performance and excellence and he therefore threatens everything they have been led to believe about themselves, society and governing. He is extremely individual. No president has ever acted in such a non-presidential way. He is a leader, not a follower. He makes things happen rather than awaiting happenings then blaming others for inadequate outcomes or accepting unexpected consequences as within the realm of normal. He asks that we all participate in our lives and livelihoods. His very existence triggers the social fragility produced by progressives.

Because he was born before the liberal mania took firm hold, President Trump is considered a deviation from what has become the norm. He wants and expects adherence to laws that keep us safe and maintain social order. He treats others (individuals and countries) equally and fairly…perhaps heavy handed at times, but equally and he expects others to reciprocate. Going along to get along is not the way of a Commander in Chief who produces positive outcomes.

Because he is a leader, because he deviates from political protocol, he is upsetting a component of society that only knows a soft and gentle life. He is triggering a segment of society that cannot handle any adversity. There are members (almost a cult) within our culture so used to taking a pill or seeking professional coddling to allay their self induced fears and frustrations that they cannot even stand to hear the name Trump without physically assaulting someone, breaking something or setting something aflame that does not belong to them. And, they expect to do so without repercussion for they’ve been taught throughout their formative years that violent civil disobedience is acceptable when they feel they’ve been wronged or believe something negative might be in their future.

This is truly a derangement, but it is not President Trump’s fault. The progressives who have fragilized our children and grandchildren under authority of the public education system are to blame. They are the ones responsible for the suicides and violence and dissociative behavior of the current and past three generations. It is the ideologues in charge of teaching our children who are causing them to become deranged.

Yes, there is a Trump Derangement Syndrome. It is real. It is promoted by our education system and the media that seeks only negative and announces every nuanced or perceived pessimistic action performed or word spoken by an adversary. It is not just Trump, TDS or anxiety disorder, is now excited by any deviation from a progressive mindset.

JUSTIFYING BAD BEHAVIOR WITH GOOD BEHAVIOR

March 19, 2018

Just as the news media condemns the removal of illegal aliens from this country because they have skirted the law for years and sometimes decades, they renounce the removal of a criminal from the justice department before he can continue to further bilk taxpayers for his disgraceful behavior.

First, let us start with truth. Any law enforcement officer, criminal judge or even a behavioral specialist will tell you that when a person is caught, rarely is it the first time he or she has committed a misdemeanor or felony. Often they may have done the same or similar things many times in the past. As a for instance, when a person is pulled over by a patrol officer for speeding, it may be the second, tenth or hundredth time that person actually broke a speed decree. They may have disregarded many stop signs or red lights before being caught speeding this time. Not being caught before does not exonerate any previous wrongs.

It should matter naught whether a politician has a (D), (R) or (I), behind their name. It is how they act and vote that matters. Is it in the best interest of the majority of citizens or is it in the name of some focus group or small but loud agitation faction? Is that vote one for the continued success of a democratic republic or is it one that will eventually change our republic into a two tiered (elite and subservient) socialist or communist regime?

Liberals like to bellow that Mueller is a Republican, therefore his investigation into a president who won the election under the Republican party ticket is honorable and not to be questioned. The fact that his investigative team is made up of highly partisan Democrats who display a significant shortsightedness regarding the misgivings of any and all members of their chosen party is to be overlooked.

John McCain’s service to the country while in uniform and his courageous endurance while in captivity is certainly honorable and commendable. His liberal disservice to this very same country while in the House and Senate, however, is not to be lauded. The fact that he, Jeff Flake and Ben Sasse – Never Trumpers all – call themselves Republicans does not make them conservative or preservative of the country we know. They would rather change the stature and structure of the country than publicly agree that a Washington outsider’s attempt to restore law, order and culture to America is in the best interest of the citizens even if it is not best for politicians.

Likewise, just because a person or group of people managed to gain entry into the country illegally or overstay their granted welcome (visa) and remain for weeks, months or years before being detected does not justify any “right” to remain. It does not convey to them the rights and privileges accorded to citizens.

That brings us to the dilemma of Andrew McCabe. McCabe is a man who was finally identified and fired for performing duties contrary to those for which he was hired. Some say that it is disrespectful for the Attorney General to fire him and relieve the taxpayers of a $1.8 million burden just days before his scheduled retirement. Others say that the firing should have taken place months ago and saved the taxpayers his salary to this point. As illustrated above, this is the time for which he was identified as subversive. It does not mean that it was the first time in his 21 year career that he did something against bureau protocol with a politically minded purpose.

LIBERALS DRIVE GUN SALES

February 28, 2018

Well, it happened again. Liberals are able to do what no marketing firm representing a manufacturer or vendor can do when it comes to raising gun sales volume. The more insanely they bellow about “high capacity clips”, “assault rifles”, “military weaponry” and “well regulated militia”, the higher gun sales volume goes.

Let us first be aware of the Second Amendment. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Liberals/progressives want to concentrate on the words “well regulated Militia”, forgetting that without arms any formal grouping is useless against a heavily armed tyrannical government. They also like to bring into the conversation the likeness of a musket to a semi-automatic rifle.

Here’s what happens to their “living/breathing document” argument.

For my money, if some despot leading the government authorizes the use of automatic rifles to suppress the citizenry, then “We the People” should have like weaponry to defend our freedoms. I’m okay with civilians having fully automatic weapons (now illegal in most states). Their non-combat use might be restricted to sanctioned ranges with heavy fines or imprisonment for unauthorized use beyond that scope. But, when the time comes, we must be able to defend our lives, our freedoms and our dignity by any means possible from those who choose oppression over freedom.

It is also imperative that each and every gun owner pass an accredited class in Basic Handling and Firearm Safety. While not advocating for another “tax” aka license, the school or instructor should issue a certification attesting to the attendee’s knowledge and ability to comply with reasonable standards. Today, to purchase a firearm, there is a very reasonable $10 fee for a federal background check. It’s the responsibility of the feds to collect and secure the required information for that $10 before issuing a permit to purchase.

We were told that giving up some of our privacy to enact the Patriot Act would allow federal agencies to interact with local law enforcement and share information to keep us safe. Well, our privacy and some of our liberties are now gone, yet there is still inadequate responsible information sharing to keep us relatively safe.

Let us not lose more with little to nothing in return.

HARK, HARK! THE RUSSIANS ARE STILL COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE STILL COMING!

January 26, 2018

The Democrat party leaders and the media simply cannot accept the Trump presidency and cannot let go of the narrative that Russian interference got him elected. It has served them well thus far. Say something enough times and pretty soon people begin believing it’s true and act accordingly.

The tactic caused a multi-million dollar investigation by Democratic peers wherein the investigators refuse to review what they find and keep turning away from the truth. Typically for government employees, as corruption occurs or is identified within the ranks, the perpetrators are simply reassigned or allowed to retire with full benefits and continue on their merry way to nowhere.

As the stories of collusion and conspiracy with Russians are identified as no longer viable to the much larger goal of obstructing the function of government, globalist progressives need to change course in their quest to totally collapse the American system. The new, or at least ongoing, ploy is to identify and destroy any person or group of people who wish to follow the laws as established by congress and those who show respect and admiration for our military, border guards and other peace keepers.

Meanwhile, the bad Russians mantra continues. The most recent is another attempt to block the release of a memo purportedly identifying a “secret society” within the government meant to obstruct the efforts of the current president. According to reports, the cabal met offsite to conceal their existence and membership. The consideration of such a group of anarchists began with text messages between two subversives within the FBI.

This alleged secret society is immediately being passed off by the MSM as a joke. Some of us see it as an effort to further divert the attention of their viewing audiences. While the joke idea might be true, it’s hard for a discerning mind to accept that this treasonous pair purposely constructed the missives with that notion in mind within days of the election, only to be found now. But, with the media on their side, anti-Trumpers have a tremendous opportunity to influence their vacuous devotees.

From the evidence currently available, the potential for insurrectionists within the government working at the behest of top-tier progressives following Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” seems very likely. President Obama had a distinct liking for Alinsky and Hillary Clinton wrote her senior thesis for Wellesley College (“There Is Only the Fight…: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model”) on his concept. It is rumored that President Obama still has a strong guiding hand working within the bowels of the government.

The word of a potential secret society has rapidly and widely spread throughout social media and progressives are worried. They’re worried that conservatives have learned and are now carrying out the teachings of Alinsky to their own end and they find it devastating to their cause. Conservatives are finally fighting fire with fire not just kindly and quietly renouncing the flames. Perhaps tweeting is not such a bad thing.

With this in mind, Adam Schiff and Diane Feinstein, in a fit of panic, formally asked Mark Zuckerberg (CEO Facebook) and Jack Dorsey (CEO Twitter) to investigate and counter the meme of connivance #ReleaseTheMemo as being produced by Russian bots. They cannot accept that what works for the goose works equally well for the gander. They truly fear the release of the text messages between their loyal subjects.

Unfortunately for them, at least as of this writing, neither Twitter or Facebook can verify that Russian bots are reproducing or regenerating the messages. The anti-Trump resistance will continue seeking some Russian connection. If no connection is made, at least they will have continued to energize their movement.
