BUT IT’S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GAIN CONTROL

September 30, 2019

President Trump says nasty things about virtually everybody he believes has attacked him or his ideas without warrant. It matters naught who it is, what color their skin or from where they come. It is him reacting to what he believes is untrue or wrong. Therefore, he must be impeached.

He was accused of “attacking women of color” because he said some uncomely things about THE SQUAD. The media, every democrat and P.C. analyst wrote and spoke about his being a racist for weeks due to a couple of tweets and live sound bites. He was called a racist, xenophobe, misogynist, white supremacist and Hitler for his pronouncements.

Could it be that he felt the four made idiotic suggestions about how much more money could be sucked out of the pockets and bank accounts of taxpayers? Might it be that they want government control of that money and your life? “The Green New Deal” would be 100% ineffectual because the U.S. is only a part of the world’s CO2 emissions caused by manufacturing and consumption of petroleum based products.

The squad, by their proposal, intimate that the U.S. can eliminate green house gasses and therefore eliminate the need for all other countries’ responsibility for emission reduction. They say that if we spend trillions of dollars on the effort, others will follow and do their part.

Human nature and history show us that, in fact, those other countries are likely to say, “Good job America, now we don’t have to waste our resources because you’ve done such a fantastic job”. Here I’d like to reference China’s adherence to the Paris Climate Accord. China (where people must often wear masks to breathe) agreed to continue creating greater pollution until a peak is reached in 2030.

He might have demeaned the people when he suggested that they “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” https://bizarroworldusa.wordpress.com/2019/07/18/news-alert-how-lies-become-truths/

While some of the greatest emitters of carbon based pollutants are truly reducing their emissions, their production and their economies are faltering. More manufacturing is being done in the U.S. since the accord was reached yet we are still reducing the total pollution despite the increase in production.

Don’t even get me started on bovine flatulence. I, too, have been known to eat foods such as legumes and grains that cause gaseous emissions.

It might be said that the current attempt is to make the president into something other than he really is. Of the past week or so, we have seen the media and socialists in office attempt to make a story out of a phone call. They have used hearsay, revolving media stories, innuendo and unfounded allegations. They say that he (Trump) tried to get dirt on a political opponent.

I doubt that President Trump is seriously concerned about Joe Biden becoming a viable candidate for president and that he needs dirt to secure re-election. As I see it, the president was suggesting that an investigation into corruption, money laundering, coercion and perhaps even bribery be re-opened. The subject of the investigation just happens to be a candidate unlikely to be the Democrat presidential nominee. It’s the corruption, not fear of Joe Biden, just as the comments about the squad had nothing to do with their gender, skin color or heritage. They happen to be socialists and he believes Americans are better off under a law and order capitalist society and democratic republic not a socialist controlled authoritarian regime.

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!

THE AGE OF BEWILDERMENT

March 11, 2019

As we enter election season, progressives want to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. There is a reason for this and it is not just to incorporate more people into the civic duty of electing officials. The reason is sinister.

At 16, even a working individual has not had the opportunity to evaluate how the earnings taken from his or her paycheck are being abused by their elected officials. Scientific and biological researchers and experts agree that the human mind develops slowly and is not fully capable of continuous rational thought and judgment until a person is in their mid-twenties.

Teachers of students in the public indoctrination system insist on having their bored but active charges put on psychoactive pharmaceuticals to enable greater access to the otherwise bright and thinking minds of our youth. This is also why the government wants to take control of children even before they enter kindergarten.

While yet of what I believe is sound mind, I am having great difficulty understanding some of what is foist upon us by our elected elite socialists under the guise of evolutionary progress.

  • The minimum age to buy and drink alcohol in all 50 states is 21 years.
  • One must be 18 to join the military/fight for your country and kill enemies
  • One must be 18 to buy a firearm on the civilian market…they want to move this to 21 because, they say, a person of only eighteen years is not always capable of controlling their impulses.
  • One must be 18 to destroy their body by smoking tobacco products to ruin their health
  • One must be 18 to obtain a prescription for health medications or have a guardian sign for them.
  • Most states hold the parents responsible for the liabilities created by and the welfare of offspring until their 18th birthday.

For all of the above, one must present proof of age in the form of a verified government issued identification generally showing a photographic likeness of the individual requesting service (except for voting).

These ages, agreed upon and established over decades as norms, are now under consideration for revision to accommodate Marxist/socialist goals of transforming our democratic republic into a state of dictatorship.

*Remember, it was Michelle Obama who said in 2008, “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.”

The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making. Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior.

VOTE16USA.org is dedicated to lowering the voting age to 16 across the nation. The organization says that such a move will improve voter turnout and encourage civic engagement. They offer heavy influence to the power-grabbing elite. Democrats in congress recently included lowering the voting age as an amendment in HR1 “For the People Act of 2019”.

From the website: http://nancyguberti.com/5-stages-of-human-brain-development/ (emphasis added to pertinent parts)

Stage 1: 0 to 10 months

~Neurons and connections growing.

Stage 2: birth to 6 years

~Development of voluntary movement, reasoning, perception, frontal lobes active in development of emotions, attachments, planning, working memory, and perception. A sense of self is developing and life experiences shape the emotional well being.

Our elected officials want control of this subset calling it Early Childhood or Pre-K development. By taking control of the early developing mind, it is possible to manipulate and subdue the child into the mold dictatorial socialists desire. They can “correct” responsive thinking early for compatibility with what they deem as new societal norms.

Stage 3: 7 to 22 years

~The neural connections or ‘grey’ matter is still pruning, wiring of brain still in progress, the fatty tissues surrounding neurons or ‘white’ matter increase and assist with speeding up electrical impulses and stabilize connections.  The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making.

~Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior. Avoiding drugs, alcohol, smoking, unprotected sex and substance abuse.

Stage 4: 23 to 65 years

~Finally, the brain reaches its peak power around age 22 and lasts for 5 more years. Afterwards, it’s a downhill pattern. Last to mature and the first to go are the brain functionality of executive control occurring in the prefrontal and temporal cortices. Memory for recalling episodes start to decline, processing speed slows and working memory is storing less information.

~Best approach is to stay mentally active, learn new things, stay physically active and eat a very healthy diet. Avoid toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and mind-altering drugs.

Given the proven development pattern of the human brain, is there any question why Democrat Socialists want to lower the voting age? Total control and manipulation of their subjects, “We the People”, appears to be the goal.  It’s only one part of the social engineering for effect taking place today.

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.

 

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.
