Happy Drunken Irish Day!

As a third generation American of Irish decent, am I the only one offended at the concept of St Patrick's Day being promoted and roundly observed as a big drinking day? And is naming a drink an "Irish Car Bomb" even remotely funny?

After a long history of invasions, repressions, starvation and servitude, getting our asses kicked by the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings and the Normans/British, the only thing a modern person of Irish decent can look forward to is skipping a day of work to get plastered on St Paddy's Day and publicly making fools of themselves?

It even has it's own parade.

This is what our ancestors, who often came with only the clothes on their backs and leaving everything they had back in the old country, risked their necks to come to America for?

And once here they endured 10 hour days 6 days a week as fodder for the vast and giant, smokey brickwork mills of the industrial revolution, living crowded together in substandard housing and inhabiting the low end of the social scale until they established themselves in a new world. Nobody handed them anything, it was all earned by the sweat of their brow, the strength of their backs and the desire and resolve in their hearts.

Many died in the famine, many died in the Atlantic crossing and many died in the factories and crowded slums.

All so that in modern times we can perpetuate the image that we're a bunch of drunks.

Good thing their dead, 'cause this would kill 'em!

Just like the Italian's lack of humor when it comes to references to "The Mafia" or the Great American South to those "Duke's of Hazard" style hillbillies, I shudder each year at the prospect of this "Special" day and all the morons that come out for it.

But people can and should do what they want just as long as they only do it to themselves. It's just all done in such poor taste. And what a low class affair to pay $25- $35 to go into a pub you normally walk in free the rest of the year. But that's the way it is with the Irish I suppose, falling into their stereotypes for all to see. From Brendan Behan to Shane McGowan. It's a shame we haven't smartened up.

So drinking til one vomits it is for St. Patrick's Day. On this side of the pond anyway. Don't know how it's done in Ireland but I suppose somebody over there at least knows why they're doing it. For me I just find it insulting that this Irish Amature Night is not much better than Cinco de Mayo in the annals of marketing and manufactured ignorance.

And while we're at it, if the Fighting Irish symbol of Notre Dame University depicted a person of any other color or of any other race, there would be a such a hue and cry that everybody associated with it would have to resign in disgrace. But it's an Irishman, isn't it?

And nobody cares if they offend an Irishman.

I was watching a PBS special on the Civil Rights Movement the other night when the commentator said they "took Martin Luther King Jr. away in a Paddy Wagon.". I thought that statement summed it all up nicely.

So go ahead, drink up Boyos, and stumble down a flight of stairs for "Old Saint Paddy" for all I care. Sing your sad love songs and happy fighting songs while you're all in your cups.

I'll be home on my couch with a blanket pulled up over my head waiting for it all to be over, again.

No Such Thing as Hate Speech, Mayor Khan

The term "Hate Speech" is just a veneer the Stateists hide behind when they encounter bad press.

Witness the latest call by an elected official who doesn't like what he's reading. The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has an issue with people not saying nice things about him. Of course in Great Britain there is no right to free speech so it's not a stretch for a Londoner to want to stop such open discourse. It's just not...proper.

Well this BOOK BURNER, Mayor Khan, has a problem. The people who are saying terrible things about him are beyond his reach on Facebook. So he wants to have the government pass laws governing what speech is allowable.

This is all under the guise of "protecting people". You see, if they hear something bad about Mr. Khan or themselves on the Internet, this could damage their delicate self esteem.

Yes, it's all for the CHILDREN! Can't you see how sincere Mr. Khan is?

You see, the Mayor of London just can't stand the THOUGHT of such things. In fact, it's these THOUGHTS he is hoping to stop from manifesting. We should all just be nice and keep our stupid opinions to ourselves on the Internet. If we should have hateful thoughts about the Mayor or about other stupid politicians like him then we should be restricted from expressing these thoughts and that nobody should be allowed to read them.

So Mr. Khan wants something to be done to detect and report "Hate Speech" on line. Which brings to mind a question:

Who will be the one to determine what "Hate Speech" really is?

It's easy really, Hate Speech is something YOU don't like.

Perhaps we could get a nice socialist mayor of a big city to be the judge.

Problem solved!

I think Mr. Khan will gladly become the arbiter of all things Hateful. HE will be the one to determine what should be said on the Internet. Can you blame him considering his background?

Although I see a big problem since here in the United States, we do have a written Constitution and a Bill of Rights that, first and foremost, guarantees the right to say what you want to say. Oh, there are a few limits but I would hardly equate sending hate notes to Mayor Khan, an outspoken lightning rod of a public figure by the way, to yelling "fire" in a crowded movie theater.

I'm sure this egomaniac Mayor Khan would disagree.

And imagine the outrage if someone were to tell the honorable mayor that if he would only watch what HE was saying, perhaps he wouldn't trigger so much "Hate Speech".

But the right to say what one wants must only apply to him. YOU don't get the same opportunity because YOU don't count for BEANS in Mayor Khan's book and only your speech should be restricted. Such things do not apply to a man of his high stature.

Gee, I guess Mr. Khan is British after all! He does seem to possess that arrogant regal swagger of self-importance that emanates from that island nation. Britain did ban American talk radio host Michael Savage from entering the country even though he had no intention of ever going there.

I get a kick out of people who go on about having a right not to be searched. Or they have a right not to incriminate themselves. In fact I hear many people go on daily about their rights. Yet these same people have no qualms about restricting the same for others. They're all for the police kicking down doors or searching motor vehicles at random stops to get "criminals" but scream bloody murder when it's their door that is booted in or their car tossed for no visible reason. Go figure.

There is plenty of evidence that its the British government itself that has no problem with such issues as written laws protecting speech, privacy and to be secure in your personal effects and property. It was THEY who tapped into international communications lines, the British spy agency, the GCHQ, and collected personal data on American Citizens and then gave the information, literally data on millions of unsuspecting people, to our own NSA. All without the pesky problems of a warrant or reasonable cause. So who really are the criminals in all this?

Do you want the government, ANY government, to tell you what you should be seeing and hearing?

Give up the right to own a gun and you will.

Misunderstanding the 2nd Amendment

The founding fathers of the United States of America didn't fight a long and bloody war with the mighty British Empire so that we are all guaranteed the right to own a hunting rifle. That's just not it at all.

It was so that the citizenry, that's you and me, had a right to bear the same arms that could be brought to bear against us should the government determine that it should march against the people in order to subjugate them to their might.

As someone once put it, the people who started our government and framed the U.S. Constitution and it's linchpin, the Bill of Rights, were not powder-wigged fools. They foresaw that someday in the future that there could possibly be a time where people of the nation would need to use such arms to either defend themselves or to drive out those who may wish to take over the government either from within or without. And to do that, a hunting rifle just isn't going to cut it.

The Teeth in the Bill of Rights

Does anybody believe that any of the other 9 Amendments in the Bill of Rights would be worth a hill of beans without the 2nd Amendment?

Freedom of Speech? The United States is the only country in the world where the right of the people to speak and say what they want, including talking down the President and it's ministers, that has written an absolute guarantee to it's people. We see the difference in this way of thinking all over the world. Canada doesn't guarantee it's citizens a right to free speech, nor France or Great Britain, not Australia or Sweden. Great Britain doesn't even have a written constitution. I guess your rights there are whatever Parliament says they are. No right to privacy, no right to free speech.

There is no equivalent anywhere in the world to our 1st Amendment. Some say it's our weakness but they'd be wrong. Like what you hear or hate it, people have a right to say it. And if, say, the government were to attempt to smash the people's right to protest and speak out, what mechanism could there be to impress upon government that the people wish to maintain this freedom?

That's where the 2nd Amendment comes in.

So perhaps one could say that the 2nd Amendment guarantees the 1st.

How about the 3rd Amendment? Could soldiers possibly be taking over homes in modern times? Would you call that impossible? Well it is since it is specifically outlawed in the 3rd Amendment. So, say, if troops were deployed to a disaster area here in the U.S. and needed a place to stay and told you that they were staying and you had to go...well, that's where the 2nd Amendment comes in.

How about something like China's new "President" for life? I like how our government likes to refer to Dictators of counties we trade heavily with as "President". But take Mr. Xi Jinping and his desire never to leave office. If this happened in the United States, what do you suppose might happen?

China has no such right of the citizen to own a fire arm and it shows.

The 2nd Amendment upholds the entire Bill of Rights. It is a complete and most perfect document made strong by the right of the people to bear arms. It is unique to the world and because it is so, the 2nd Amendment is the most maligned and attacked amendment. It just goes to prove the adage that for the American citizen, freedom is fought for every day. And so we fight on for those who don't understand the full meaning of why it's there.

Lexington, Massachusetts

If anybody bothers to look at my profile picture, you'll see that I'm standing on the bridge at Lexington, MA. This is the spot where our first citizens stood and traded fire with the troops of the British Empire. No small feat this. This was the day of the "Shot Heard Around the World" and where later in the day practically all the armed citizen militia answered the call and the British, by the end of the day, got their asses shot off.

Why did the British come out of their Boston stronghold that day? What was their purpose? To get the guns. They knew rifles and gunpowder were being stored in Lexington. That's what they came for and there is a larger than you are lead to believe group of people in this country that thinks that the next entitled government entity will try the same thing if they aren't paying attention. That's just the way has been ever since that day, April 18, 1775. It's going to take more than the latest media parade to knock them off of this belief.

Gun Sales will Rise

Anyone who thinks that these school shootings has reduced by one iota the public's desire to defend themselves with a firearm is living under a mistaken belief system. People will again flock to buy a gun based upon the media's inflammatory rhetoric which has very much sought to exploit the tragedy in the hopes of getting out in front of their anti-gun campaign before the real story of the failure of law enforcement, both local and federal, to act to stop a very preventable shooting.

What's an Adult? 

Even if I lived in my mother's basement playing video games at the age of 18, I'm still considered an adult, although not quite a responsible one. But even so, the law says that at the age of 18 I can be tried as an adult in the court of law and sign binding contracts.

Raising the age of buying a semi-automatic rifle or weapon, and they're ALL semi-automatic these days, to 21 represents a clear infringement on the rights of an adult to own a firearm and will not stand. They can pass the law but it won't hold up in court. You can carry a fully automatic weapon in Afghanistan for the U.S. government but you can't carry a semi-automatic when you get back? That's bullshit.

Bill Clinton Tried it

The Clinton Administration passed the so called "Assault Weapons Ban" back in 1994 which only served to drive ownership of such labeled weapons underground. Who knew how many were out there. The state of California imposed an assault weapons registry which nobody paid any attention to. So that's your precedent.

Rights Under Assault

Our rights are violated daily. The National Security Agency, the NSA, has been outed as spying on U.S. citizens in violation of the 4th Amendment that guarantees protections from unlawful search and seizures of property. The 1st Amendment is under assault from the Political Left for which has been mounting a sustained campaign against what kind of speech is actually protected, branding speech as "racist" or "hateful" or partitioning speech with the bogus "Free Speech Zones" when, of course, all speech is free anywhere you want to speak it. The U.S. court system is constantly working on the 5th Amendment going so far as punishing people for failure to incriminate themselves.

We have giant U.S. corporations making deals with foreign Dictators while simultaneously voluntarily allowing our own government free access to their communications systems for "monitoring" of U.S. citizens. There is no privacy any more and the collusion between multi-national corporations and government to know everything about everybody should be a major cause of concern for every thinking American.

And you think people are going to just give up the right to own a gun?

Give Teachers Right to Carry

Nikolas Cruz, the boy who killed 17 people at the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, whom everyone who knows him stated is mentally ill, seems to have never been clinically diagnosed as such and therefore would never have shown up on a “do not sell a gun to this person” list.

In order to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, they first have to be identified and certified. Given the shameful and woeful state of public mental health facilities in the United States since the 1980s, expecting this to happen is an unrealistic expectation. Bringing back these facilities would, in my opinion, be public money well spent but even if that were to come about, it will take decades to re-establish such facilities.

As we now know, with so many people who were positions to do something who didn't, it makes no sense to pass more laws since people didn't pay any attention to the one's already in place. A law isn't going to protect you.

And as we have seen, neither are the police. 

The glaring fact of the matter is that Nikolas Cruz was perfectly legal to buy a semi-automatic rifle anywhere in the state of Florida. 

And people think this is a gun issue.

School Security Guard

Mr. Aaron Feis, the MSDHS football coach who selflessly made the ultimate sacrifice and took the bullets intended for his students, was also referred to as the school's security guard. It is evident that he was an “unarmed” security guard.  

If Mr. Feis was armed and trained to use a firearm, this situation MAY have played out differently. I don’t know how much warning Aaron Feis had about the location of Nikolas Cruz but instead of only being able to resort to throwing his body in front of the students, he could have also been ready to take down an armed student with his own firearm. 

This scenario does raise more questions than it answers like if Cruz knew that Feis was armed and if that in itself did not deter him, he could have just made it a point to seek him out and shoot him first and then continue with his shooting spree. We will never know. 

What it Will Take

When seconds count, the police are minutes away.

If there were people who were armed, either a school teacher or paid detail or guard, would this still have happened like it did? If he knew that there were armed people at the school, would Nikolas Cruz still have gone in?

So say Aaron Feis, armed and aware of Mr. Cruz coming down the hallway, shoots him and ends the conflict right there?

Or he doesn't even have to hit him, just keep Cruz at bay until help arrived.The headlines change: “Brave Teacher Halts Student Killer”. There’s no predicting such a result but we know what did happen. It’s now history.

As we have seen over and over again that our law enforcement forces cannot stop an armed assault on a soft target like a school, a bike path, a public mall or any place that people gather.

Leftists Don't Want to Hear it

The Young Leftists who are now campaigning to outlaw guns don't want to hear an alternative to taking away the guaranteed right of gun ownership. Perhaps due to their standard, sub-standard public school education, they know nothing and care nothing about the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights, a delicately balanced document that guarantees the rights they enjoy in this country and to say anything they want. And the linchpin in the Bill of Rights is the 2nd Amendment, without which none of the other amendments, including the 1st, are worth a penny.

I’m so sorry these bright young kids with an expectation of safety have had to take in a harsh reality of life so soon and seeing people they know gunned down and killed. But there was plenty that could have been done in their community to have at least given them a chance at avoiding such a catastrophe and was not done.

We can go on about passing more laws prohibiting access to guns but how will that stop a person without an arrest record or mental illness diagnosis? They're going to clear a background check. The information has to be IN the computer for it to be effective. 

The Leftists cling to a failed ideology; That guns are bad and that they should just go away. "Just ban them" they say. Like they are going to magically go away if people aren't allowed to have them. The Muslim Terrorists have guns and they aren't supposed to either. Go tell them they aren't allowed to have them and find out what they have to say about that. 

Blaming Gun Manufactures 

This door swings both way. You want to hold gun manufactures "accountable" when someone abuses one of their weapons but make no mention when someone uses a similar weapon to successfully defend themselves and other. That's right, people can and do defend themselves in this country way more often than you hear about. There's a reason for that. The media won't champion such a thing since it works against their anti-gun narrative.

Devin Kelley, the guy who shot up the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Spring, TX was stopped by an armed citizen. 

Allow Teachers to Carry

I think you will get more teachers volunteering to carry a gun today than you would have last month. Fighting back is loads better than only being able to use your body as a shield. Anybody with a brain is going to realize that there's no future in that.

Schools are the ultimate soft target and until we change that, scenes like Columbine and Stoneman Douglas are likely to continue. Guns aren't going away so the wisest choice is to be prepared.

So be prepared.

Soros Outspent Russia in 2016 Election

It doesn't look like Russia put up a whole lot of money in their attempts to "overthrow" the 2016 presidential elections.

Taking out ads of Facebook? Hell, any startup marketing group does that. Did they also put up posters at the local supermarkets and store windows downtown? They could have got one of those auto-dial phone machines that ring you up and plays a political message. They could've gotten that pretty cheap too.

But it's another thing entirely to throw millions of dollars at leftist political action groups and well known radical immigrant organizations. Soros money paid for real television and radio advertising during the campaign. And then there is the expense of keeping a professional mob of anarchists on the payroll. They can eat you out of house and home.

But old baggy-eyed Soros has the money, the time and the desire so it's no big deal to him. His aim was, as it is today, to undermine our system of government because it seems he makes the most money out of chaos and fear. What can you say, it seems to pay real well.

So why aren't we hearing about Soros "meddling" in the 2016 presidential election? Or anybody else who threw heaping wads o' cash around during the election?

Oh yeah, that's right, George Soro's money and efforts were going towards making Hillary Clinton president. Well THAT certainly can't be a crime.

And I almost forgot about the Koch brothers who also spent mightily for the same purpose of stopping that scourge of the status quo in American government, now president, Donald Trump.

So how did all this work out for them?

They got BUPKISS, didn't they, for all the Kajillions of dollars laid out during the run up to the 2016 election. And it didn't amount to a hill of beans for Hillary even though the fix was in to screw Brother Bernie for the Democratic nomination. No collusion there either. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

No, the only crime one can commit, you, me, Russia etc is to be found backing Donald J. Trump for president. That has proven to be a brazen act worthy of a special investigator. Isn't one of the "indictments" related to Russian "operatives" talking down Hillary during the campaign?

Who wasn't doing that?

How absurd this has all become. Anyone has a right to buy an ad on a media site. It's not a crime to back a candidate or to slander another, even if Donald Trump told them to do it. Hillary told Debbie Wasserman-Shultz to screw Bernie Sanders. Does that count? Bill Clinton told then U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch that she could stay on as AG under a Hillary Clinton presidency as long as she doesn't get too nosey. Does THAT count? How about all the money the Chinese government gave to Bill Clinton in 1996? Or his big dollar "lecture tour" in Russia?

Never mind, why do I even bother?

All these efforts, like Soros, the Kochs, the Russians, were all but faint cries in the vast howling windstorm of American Presidential Politics. Nobody cared who was doing what since the lines were drawn way earlier than Media or Money could alter.

All the candidates are in the public domain and enjoy no protections. Any organization, any company and any individual can say anything they want about them. It's our highest law.

So can't we end this soon?

Mueller Trying to Save Face

Well, he has to indict SOMEBODY. He's got nothing or it would have been leaked by now.

So, lacking evidence, Mr. Mueller does what special investigators who have burned through millions of taxpayer dollars have done in the past when they're looking to back their way out of an unwinnable situation: Indict a bunch of people who he can't get at, never interviewed and who most likely never set foot in this country to date. How daring! How bold! How time worn!

It would be great fun if some of these Russian dudes decided to come to the U.S. to contest the charges. What would Mueller do then? How can buying an ad be a crime? They could just hold up a picture of George Soros at the trial and walk out of court free men.

Or maybe Mueller will decide to grant these Russian defendants amnesty if they tell all they know about their relationship with Donald Trump. That should take 2 minutes.

The Real Shame

The real sad part of this whole affair is that a chance of a thaw in U.S./Russian relations has been set back yet again, this time by this media induced Russian conspiracy theory that was cooked up solely to throw shade on a Trump presidency.

What a total waste.

Mueller Threatens U.S. Democracy

Special Council Robert Mueller will not be ending Donald Trump's presidency. This much is clear and it has been clear from the beginning. All the bizarre hopes and dreams of the one-party system of government we have had in place since perhaps FDR are not going to be fulfilled by this little man with the big serious face and dark suit. They won't be and they can't be.

If Mr. Mueller is not careful, he will bring about a bigger result should he act on the urges of his deep state constituents. He could bring civil chaos with the stroke of a pen.

But he won't.

It has been becoming quite clear what Mueller's real purpose is: To keep the air of illegitimacy and impropriety hanging over the Trump government for at least two years and at the most all four. He isn't going to go away just because there is no evidence. He doesn't even need evidence to issue an indictment of the President. He could just issue one and the Democratic Party and their Leftist Media cohorts will do the rest.

But should such a scenario actually happen, it will probably mean the end of the Republic.

What would the purpose of having a vote serve if the opposition can appoint a "Special Council" and remove the elected candidate? Do you think the people who voted for that candidate are just going to sit back and do nothing should that happen? Who elected Robert Mueller? What power does he really have?

Just the power of intimidation and presence. If he goes any further than walking around looking stern, he risks going down in history as the man who destroyed our current system of Democracy and perhaps to have incited Civil War.

Don't say "It can't happen here." because it already did.

Donald Trump is the first person to be elected in my lifetime that has established for me once and for all that our lousy system of government actually WORKS. At least once in a while. He was elected at a time where people whom many of us DIDN'T AGREE WITH have been running the country for the last 16 years (at least). Now it has become evident that the people who were fed up with the previous two regimes grew to a point where they could exert their desires politically and because of their heartfelt and strenuous efforts, their chosen candidate WON THE ELECTION.

Under the 24 hour a day non-stop Anti-Trump media bombardment leading up the the 2016 election, this is a BIG DEAL. Now the Karmic shoe is on the other foot and so the rules have to be changed?

Not going to happen. Not without unpleasant implications.

Donald Trump is the people's champion. The last guy wasn't. He was championing for some other people but not the American working, taxpaying, people who play by the rules type of people who voted for Donald Trump. They see that Mueller is a Partisan hack. They believe, like I believe, that the FBI surveilled the Trump presidential campaign headquarters to serve the cause of Hillary Clinton.

How do I know? Because the NSA and FBI are surveilling EVERYBODY without cause or warrant. How much more effort would it take to turn the speakers up on the phones of Trump's staff? Not much.

And after all, it was all for Hillary. The end justifies the means for the Marxist Left.

And who has trusted the FBI ever? Oh, they were great back in the dust bowl days shooting up grainy black and white Depression era bank robbers but since it was discovered that former FBI head J. Edgar Hoover had a folder on everybody from Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy to lowly Boston talk radio loudmouth Howie Carr, people knew the fix was in.

And the fix is in. Mueller is tainted by his association with that lying weasel James Comey and by the revelation that his henchmen conspired to collude against now President Trump to bring down his presidency. And unlike Mueller's Russia investigation, this we do have evidence of. We also know how the FBI avoided even an investigation of Hillary Clinton's correspondences outside the rules and the eyes of her government responsibilities while Secretary of State. The FBI is a house that must be cleansed.

Every attempt to muddy the waters of these revelations does them no good. NOBODY believes them. Spin the facts, bring in NPR, CNN and WBZ with more talk and memos, have the Media 5th Column trumpet the alternative reality, so what?

NOBODY believes them!

They have been caught by the American voter. There is no putting that genie back in the bottle.

Mueller is an embarrassment and the longer he hangs out there the bigger an embarrassment he'll be to the Democrats going into the 2018 elections. They look like they are trying to play a pair of Twos in a high-stakes poker game. They're bluffing and they know they've got nothing.

And we know they've got nothing too.

So go ahead Mr. Mueller, issue an indictment of President Trump. I'm calling your bluff because that's what you are, a Status Quo, Anti-Democracy, Anti-Trump, Anti-American, Partisan figment of BULLSHIT.

You go ahead and pull something and we'll all just see what happens next you big-faced little Leftist Twerp!

Bring it.

The Democratic Platform for 2018

In light of what has transpired since Donald J. Trump took the Presidency of these United States, I have pieced together, from observation and experience, the principles and desires for the nation that the Democratic Party has chosen to champion for the upcoming 2018 election cycle.

For the past year that President Trump has been in office, the Democratic Party has freaked out about everything he has tried to achieve. They have opposed doing away with the costly and oppressive Affordable Care Act, opposed tax cuts and desires more government and taxes. They also go crazy at everything Mr. Trump has to say. 

So from what I can tell by looking, these are the key election goals the Democrats will be fighting for this coming election season:

Unlimited immigration from every downtrodden country around the world: “Come to America” they have called, “We will bring you in; give you a housing subsidy and a stipend to live on while you learn to love our country!”

No to tax cuts for the American worker:  No money for you! Yes, you earned it but it’s not yours to keep. It has to go to support those less fortunate than you. We must put the poor people’s children through college, support the in-coming immigrants who will take our low-wage jobs and to house those who can’t afford housing because their jobs don’t pay very well. We must put them first. Your kid can just take out a loan for college, after all, you're privileged. 

You can’t say that! You can’t say a word like “Gypsy” because it is racist! The KKK is everywhere lurking in a white man's heart! White European men are the real problems plaguing modern diverse society. They have no right to say anything anymore. 

You can’t call Haiti a “Shit-hole” because you may offend the shit-hole’s inhabitants. Perhaps they don’t realize they’re living in a shit-hole! How will they feel when they hear that and look around and realize it's TRUE?

The people of Mexico, Sudan, Myanmar, Venezuela and Yemen don't want to be reminded of how corrupt and oppressive their governments are and how it's a shit-hole where they live. It's easier to come to the U.S. and live as a subsidized puppet. 

You can’t say certain words any longer. They’re offensive triggers to…somebody. Which words are offensive? Don't worry, we'll just tell you when you say them. 

No free markets:  You can’t graze your cattle on this land anymore because we have now made it a National Monument. You can't drill for oil on this land because we have designated it a Caribu Sanctuary. You have to take the health coverage we give you  because we have outlawed competition. Oh, you can grow your business BUT only after you comply with our ever increasing regulations and taxes.

Guns are bad: You can’t own a firearm and you don’t have the right to protect yourself from all the radical immigrants that are coming in and shooting up the place. If you should happen to catch a bullet from one of these people, it's just your own bad luck. 

All the Pot you can Smoke: Instead of all the other stuff you don’t get to do, we want to legalize Marijuana. Not because Prohibition is wrong but because this way, you won’t know what you’re missing. Puff away people, things will seem a whole lot better. 

The platform appears to be: More government, more uneducated immigrates, more subsidies, less free speech and no tax breaks for you!

I don’t know, sounds like it could be a winner.

Trump Changes the World!

Given that all the industrial nations of the world are forced to examine their own tax codes in order to compete with the United States, I'd say that President Trump's revision of the tax code has had quite an impact.

Once again the U.S. acts and others have to pause. Do they follow the U.S. and lower their tax rates or do they watch as commerce and currency flow the other way for a change, back to the United States. 

I'd say they'd better start sharpening their pencils 'cause if they don't, they're going to be on the wrong end of the tax flow. 

But this will also lift their boats as well as the long suffering U.S. tax base. Having more of the money they earned in their pockets will prompt people to spend more. It may take a little while since here in the U.S. under the last 8 years many have been holding on hard to their cash. But it won't be long when the withholding rates drop before people realize it's true. Their cynicism will recede. 

On to Welfare Reform

Time to get the "poor" onto the road to self-sufficiency. Changing the way the money is doled out should be the first thing. Charging their EBT card every month without question is a failed method rife with fraud. Make them come get it and confirm their addresses and status. 

The state of Massachusetts sent out a mass mailing a few years back to the "Supplemented Masses" and discovered that they had 19,000 incorrect addresses and later discovered they had 1000 dead people collecting assistance. 

So if you want to see a second coming, don't turn to religion, turn to the State because they have a far better track record of bringing back the dead. 

Many welfare scofflaws think they're getting away with something but they don't realize that they could have gone much further on their own initiative than taking the short money and just not trying anything else. 

Trump Pulls Back Foreign Bribes

Screw Pakistan! The last home of Osama Bin Laden. Oh that's right, they had NO IDEA he was there! 

And the "Palestinians" can go lump it too. They don't recognize Israel, apparently have never even seen a picture of the place. They can't find it on a map.

Well, unless they all sign up for Geography Lessons, they shouldn't expect a dime out of the U.S. ever again.

Did I mention it was OUR MONEY? It's OUR MONEY. It's not THEIR money until some idiot starts giving it away to them like our last president...what's his name. And the president before him and the president before him.

What were they trying to do? 

Whatever it was, it hasn't worked. These people still hate us and they're still harboring people who are plotting our demise. 

All while taking our money. Which begs a question I have asked myself often since millions of U.S. dollars was discovered in the walls of one of Saddam Hussein's many palaces: 

If you destroy the United States, what make you think that money will be any good? That part I never got. If you're going to destroy us, holding onto our money is just a bad business move. Also, who's going to buy all the stuff you make if we're not around? Another bad business move. 

Yes, after a year of struggles, of fighting with the Republican Establishment, the seditious Leftist Media, the insidiously corrupt FBI, the less than useless United Nations and having to deal with the slings of foreign Socialists from around the globe who just don't get it, President Trump has managed to pull off his bold statement. We're tired of 2.0 "growth" per year, we're tired of giving our money away to people who don't appreciate us and in other words...

we're tired of paying for nothing.

Why Tax Cuts for the Rich? Here's Why...

Since to the Political Left there can be no tax cut that does not benefit the "rich" in our society, I have a few answers for the question of why we are giving, once again, tax cuts to the Rich:

Because giving money to the poor hasn't benefited anyone, especially the poor. They've stayed stubbornly poor for decades. Taking the government money is a poor career choice.

Because you can't give poor people tax cuts since they don't pay taxes to begin with. Except if you count the gas tax but thats a Democrat thing and so nobody talks about it.

Because giving money to poor people doesn't create jobs or grow the economy. Any poor people offer you a job lately? I didn't think so.

Because, as my mother once told me; "There aren't enough rich people to take care of us. You can tax 'em all into poverty, it's not going to improve your lot in life one iota. Zip, nada, zilch. Now go get a *#)%_@!& JOB, will ya?!"

Because jobs are more important than poor people. No jobs equals no tax money and instead of trying to coerce McDonald's into paying $15.00 an hour for their dead-end jobs, wouldn't it be better to have jobs that did pay $15.00 an hour with potential?

That's the point.

We've been there and done that. We've shelled out Billions and Billions of dollars in welfare and it doesn't grow the economy and it doesn't make poor people want to become rich. There are too many government middlemen handling the money and taking a cut off the top for the money to actually grow the economy and it hasn't provided an incentive for people to work. Haven't we seen enough?

Tax cuts have worked to grow the economy every time they have been tried. Kennedy did it. Reagan did it. Boom and Boom! You want the numbers, Google 'em.

The Leftist talking heads ask; "How are you going to PAY for the tax cuts?" like it's the government's money we are talking about. It's not the government's money! The money comes from the private sector and out of peoples pockets before they even get a chance to see it. How do you "PAY" for a tax cut? Quit spending money that isn't yours and hasn't been earned yet! That would be a good start.

The government prints the money, the government takes the money, the government re-distributes the money, the government pays the people they use to take and re-distribute the money and the government spends the money. But the government does not EARN the money.

Tax cuts will be paid for once the Entitlement Programs are either discontinued or they collapse. No more kicking another brick under the government Pyramid entitlement schemes. Furthermore, more tax money is taken in during a robust economy than a stagnant one.

I heard on National Public Radio (NPR) that President Donald Trump's tax cut plan would funnel, yes, FUNNEL money to the rich. Like it was some sort of pay out. No, it's not a pay out. You keep it. The government takes LESS out of your pocket. They still are taking money, just not as much as they were before. That's what a tax cut is and I don't care how much other people get to keep as long as I get to keep some too.

This is not a mistake in reporting of course, NPR knows exactly what it's doing by using such Weasel Words. It's what they do and I'm sure they labor long and hard over their choice of words. They have to.

So ultimately you can only give a tax cut to people who earn and have money! Isn't it silly to call them rich because they have jobs and are bringing home a pay check? Some people earn more money than others but do not swallow the Cool Aid. Tax cuts work for the people who earn the money. They will grow the economy which is just now coming out of the last 8 years of Socialism-induced stagnation under the last president...what's his name again? 

The money will go to far, far better use in the taxpayers pockets than anywhere else. Ditto for businesses big and small.

For a business, taxes come out of something they make called "Profit" which is what money is left over after "Expenses", the costs of doing business. Profits of a company are mostly put back into the business to upgrade equipment and to possibly add employees. If it's a big business, profits also go to pay back the people who invested their money with them as "Investors" who hold "Stock" in the company, a "Piece of the Pie" so to speak. These people took a chance with their money in the hopes the business would grow and they too would profit. When the government takes this money, there is less money put back into the business for any of these purposes.

If American business can't keep up with their overseas competition who are taxed at a lower rate, what we get is what has been going on for the last 8 years. We now refer to this as a time of "Economic Stagnation".

The government has taken too much and has gotten zero return for the tax money they've spent. They've squandered it on welfare entitlements, antiquated pension plans, pay-back subsidies for donor solar panel companies, wasteful wars and interventions, free abortion on demand and the failure of a boondoggle that is the ACA. The last regime has only squandered money, strangled small business into recession and paid out "stimulus" to state unions without any "shovel ready" jobs as a result. 

No, no, we've done it the Left's way long enough. It has failed...AGAIN. The U.S. has the richest poor people in the world and still they are no better off.  In fact the American Middle Class is worse off because they've been contributing so much money to send "poor" people's kids to college, they can't afford to send their own and instead are burdened with tens of thousands of dollars in debt, to the government, that can't be charged off. So screw that! 

Give us the money back so we can spend it ourselves. 

After all, we earned it in the first place.

Hamas Prefers to Rage

Raging in the streets only underscores the fact that these stateless Arabs who occupy the Gaza strip are wholly impotent in regard to the future of the Middle East. They will have no role and play no part in it. Their fate remains in the hands of others. This has been their choice all along.

The future has been put on hold long enough and it's time to recognize the reality that there is no Palestine and there hasn't been a Palestine for a very long time. There are no Palestinians any more and there hasn't been any Palestinians for a long time either. The people who stand in their place and claim the name haven't any more resemblance to Palestinians than todays Turkey to the Ottoman Empire. Their claims are spurious and are only held as real by their Saudi backers and the American Liberal Press, aka: The ALP Freedom Front of Palestine.

After President Clinton offered Yasser Arafat everything he was asking for to make peace and Arafat still refused, there has been no reason to negotiate further. That was back in 2000, 17 years ago. How long is civilization supposed to wait? How long are the civilized supposed to cater to the uncivilized?

It's time to move on.

The United States, under President Donald Trump, has finally done what it has long promised but never delivered. It has declared that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

Negotiate for a piece of the future or Rage and be left behind.

The Gazan Dictatorship has elected to Rage.

But they are more alone than ever.

The Saudis are having mounting and costly problems of their own.

The Arabian grip on the worlds supply of oil has been broken and the spendthrift rich and bored House of Saud has had to do a bit of belt tightening. Some of them I hear are down to their last 3 Mercedes Benz'.

The Saudis are further taxed by their intervention in Yemen and conflict with arch enemy Iran. This leaves little room for the great unwashed of Gaza. In fact, this little charade they have been backing for decades has outlived it's usefulness to them.

The Saudis Need Israel

The Middle East now needs a real functioning economy that goes beyond oil. That means they need trading partners who preferably have an economy of their own. Israel just happens to have a bustling economy. It's a growing state and a going concern. It also helps that Israel and Iran don't get along say the least.

This leaves the "Palestinians" in a tough spot. THEY don't have an economy beyond local olive growers. They've NEVER had an economy beyond local olive growers. All they've gotten good at is building rockets and digging tunnels. This hasn't been a winning strategy for them.

They've had their chances and they've been offered many more but Hamas, the un-elected armed group of militant Muslims that run Gaza has refused to negotiate. Should the world wait for them?

Look upon the shining cities of Israel like Tel Aviv and then gaze at the shoddy concrete bunkers their Muslim counterparts live in and have lived in for decades in poverty and want. It should be enough of a difference to behold that even the most fervent Muslim fanatic should say to themselves; "I'm doing something wrong!"

But I guess not.

So Hamas and the unfortunate Gazans will continue to fight a war they will never ever ever win. Not in one million years. They are poor dependents and you can't go to a poor dependent when you need money. They will continue to spin their wheels in the soft sands of a Jihadi Neverland, no closer to their pipe dreams of laying claim to Jerusalem than they ever have been and now they are farther away than ever. They never had a legitimate claim to begin with and until Hamas decides to negotiate in good faith for a homeland...somewhere, they will just stay right where they are without a real government, a real economy and any hope for a real future.

For the Gazans, poverty is a poor bargaining chip. But regardless, it looks like they've chosen, once again, to be left behind.

So leave them behind.

Al Franken is a Big Fat Pervert!

And a “Lying Liar who tells Lies” on top of it.

Can one think of anything more insincere than Mr. Franken’s apologies? His dead-pan delivery and feigned embarrassment is certainly as hollow a non mea culpa as any politician can utter.  To find something as equally evasive one would have to travel all the way back to 1996 where President Clinton "didn't have sex with that woman.". It all depends on what your definition of "Grope" is. 

To Senator Franken it's just like a handshake...but lower. 

The name calling, smart talking Senator from Minnesota, always the smartest man in the room, has been caught with his “hands in the cookie jar” once too often and has now “taken responsibility “ for his actions…meaning he’s not going to do anything but keep a low profile and hope it all eventually blows over. I mean, he's not an "Idiot" like that fat Rush Limbaugh, right?

Surely, the “Giant of the Senate” author feels, something else will come along to knock this issue off of the front pages of media outlets. All he has to do is wait a couple of weeks.

But although he wrote a book about “The Truth” Senator Franken has had a hard time recognizing it now that it has become he who must tell it. He “cannot recall” how many times he’s goosed the electorate of Minnesota. Perhaps he’s done this so often he can’t remember whose behind on which day he has grabbed. I’m sure they all blend together over time. 

Senator Franken remembers it all "differently" as if he can't remember what he actually grabbed. She says he grabbed her behind. He remembers grabbing...something else maybe? Or perhaps he recalls being INVITED to grab her behind. Most Minnesota women. he recalls, welcomed him...Al Franken, to grab their behinds! After all, he is a Genius!

Oh, the things he knows! If he could only now remember them.

But don’t expect him to resign. It’s not going to happen. Senator Franken is going to make the people of Minnesota vote him out of office. Sorta like a dare. This is why he...Al Franken, is smarter than everybody. He’s a screen writer, best-selling book author, an actor, a Senator…and a perverted groper of women.

Hell, he could stay in office as long as John Conyers!

Due Process is now called for

Now the Democrats are calling for letting due process take its course.  “Let the Ethics Committee do its work and give us their findings.” is now the call. I’m sure they’ll be jumping right on that.

There was no due process for Roy Moore. He was just supposed to drop out of the race for the Alabama senate and wait to be cleared afterwards even though his alleged misdeeds were reportedly from 40 years ago. At any rate, the newest allegation is from 26 years ago.

Not Al Franken’s allegations. They’re fresh. He’s fresh. It’s all just so…fresh. 

You know, Al Franken reminds me of that nerdy kid you knew in high school, short with glasses, who never could get girls to give him the time of day despite helping them with their homework all the time. He HATED the captain of the football team because he was a dumb jock who got all the chicks and he, the boy genius, couldn't get one to remember his name. "Well!" I can hear a young Al Franken vowing, "One day I'll make them envy me!"

But nobody ever did, especially now. 

But ultimately Senator Franken isn’t going anywhere in a hurry and perhaps that will be a good thing in the long run for Roy Moore should he prove victorious in Alabama. How are the Republicans not going to seat him and stare at him...Al Franken, sitting there in the Senate? The Republicans need the votes as badly as the Democrats do.

The difference is that Roy Moore denies the allegations and Senator Franken won't admit he can't.

Why the GOP Wants Roy Moore Out of Senate Race

It's tough being a supporter of President Donald Trump. Especially if you are also running for office. It's a given that the Democrats will hate you.

And the Grand Old Party of the Republican State hates you too.

This is why the GOP establishment "believes" all of the Roy Moore accusers. Doesn't matter if there's proof, they are just going to believe whatever is said since any excuse will serve them asking for Roy Moore to step out of the race for the Senate in Alabama. The LAST thing they want is another Trump Republican holding a Senate seat.

Roy Moore is on record of going after both Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, people who have been throwing their weight against President Trump's campaign initiatives to end the Affordable Care Act and to overhaul the tax code. It is these hypocrites along with the crazy dead man walking, John McCain, who are the Never Trumpers. Roy Moore has also lead the public cheers that those two pathetic RINOs from Arizona and Tennessee will not run for re-election, namely Republocrat Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker.

The prevailing GOP establishment view of Roy Moore mirrors that of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign; they would rather see a Democrat they can "work" with win than a Republican who they can't.

This is the real reason the GOP is, for the only time in recent memory, in lock-step agreement over Mr. Moore stepping out of the Senate race. The GOP can't seem to get together on anything else while Donald Trump is president but THIS is the Great Cause they have united for. You're not even allowed to defend him or risk a boycott like that knuckle-head Sean Hannity. And it all has happened within 7 days. The rush to judgement is no accident. This was an orchestrated maneuver.

Even old Wishy-Washy former Massachusetts Governor and FAILED presidential candidate Mitt Romney has crawled out his bank vault wearing pointy-toed boots to kick Roy Moore while he's down. He too "believes" the stories as if anybody even remembers who Mitt is or takes anything he says as anything other than Sour Grapes.

Do Ryan, Romney and McConnell care if Roy Moore did any of what was said he did? Hell no, but it has provided an opportunity to try to knock off the real opposition they face: Real conservatives with principles.

The Democrat Modus Operandi

We haven't seen this sexual harassment ploy in politics since 1991 when Ted Kennedy engineered the first "High Tech Lynching" of Justice Clarence Thomas. At Thomas' Senate confirmation hearing the Democrats suddenly put up a former Thomas aid, Anita Hill, to claim that Judge Thomas has sexually harassed her over years of working together. This almost derailed one of the most consistent and unbiased justices to ever sit on the Supreme Court. Good thing Ms. Hill was exposed under questioning as the liar she was in time.

The secondary tactic of "Victim Pile-on" where more and more people, after "years of silence" now come forward with only verbal accusations and no proof and having seemingly never said a thing to anyone ever over the years about what they say had happened. But the shear weight of the numbers of "victim" accusations leads people to believe that "they can't all be lying!" So it all must be true.

But actually, they CAN all be lying.

For this tactic to work, all the players have to be in on it. When the plan is well executed, like with Bill Cosby, it's hard for the man to defend himself.

Which brings up a big puzzle for me with Bill Cosby. Am I expected to believe that these 60+ women all went over to Mr. Cosby's place alone, were all drugged and had against their will in the America of the 1960s where all a black man had to do was J-walk or use the wrong toilet to get arrested, and nobody every reported him and he was never arrested? Or was he really too famous for the cops to go after in those racially charged days of segregation riots, accusations of "uppity" black men and women who were still referred to publicly as "negros"?

And will anyone remember Mr. Cosby was acquitted at trial?

But that's the game that's going on right now. Last minute allegations set against the backdrop of a national sexual harassment witch hunt where only accusations are valid and proof of purchase not required. A situation where the press will pillory anybody who's name is thrown out into the public domain and where plenty of women without fame of whose star has faded are thinking hard of what name they can throw out there next.

Ad to the mix these very real sicko Hollywood predators and nobody is going to know who is or who isn't the guilty party.

So it stands to reason that the Democrats, desperate for a Senate win, having failed in 8 special elections, are going to pick up on this atmosphere and run with it. Their friends in the press are all too willing to help and their friends in the GOP are all too willing to help also.

Finally, the Democrats and GOP can't working together.
