Shame on conservatives, free enterprise
and rule of law!


 ~ Since the election, President Obama has enacted 145 “Midnight Regulations” at a cost of $21 billion to our economy. Please remind me how great he is and how he’s helping small business succeed. He has enacted more rules and regulations than any President on record. This is how you slow down the new administration.

Whether you agree with these actions or not, this is, by definition, subversion. History will prove his administration an American tragedy. If you look at their record, many Republicans and Democrats alike support his actions, although they may publically condemn them.

  ~ Can you imagine living with Michelle Obama after she leaves the White House? After living with a plethora of assistants and servants, the adjustment to having fewer people follow your instructions and a new do-it-yourself lifestyle will probably not be easy, especially when her kids move out.

  ~ I have flown and checked in a gun before and it was not that big of a deal. I don’t know if I agree that you should be able carry both a gun and ammunition for it as the same time. I’m sure this will change, since most aviation laws are written due to bloodshed.

  ~ Politicians sure don’t like getting hacked. Of course, they condone hacking others in the interest of National Security or any other interests that line up with their own agenda. America spending a fortune spying on others, and even condones being spied on, but if the information becomes public, they are outraged.

Sharing secrets happen all the time, but when someone exposes them to the public, the broadcaster becomes the target of attack, not the criminal behavior they revealed. How hypocritical.

  ~ After watching Mexican Americans protest immigration reform in America, I found myself smiling when I watched the protests in Mexico after they raised gasoline prices 20%. Sorry, but you don’t live in a country that supports evil free enterprise. The voice of the people aren’t heard as loudly there by the politicians either.

  ~ Will Hillary run for New York Mayor? There are several inquiring minds…

  ~ Here’s a story that won’t make the main stream media: “Christians are the Most Persecuted Religious Group in the World”. 90,000 were killed in 2016 for their beliefs, but many prefer to save the seals.

Are liberals more concerned with the rights of criminals than victims' rights?  It seems so... Do you think it's because there are more criminals who are liberals?

Rules? They apply to everyone
except me...


 ~ The New York Times wrote that churches across the nation are ramping up to provide sanctuary for illegal aliens who face deportation under the new administration.

Two things: (1) aiding a person in committing a crime or harboring a fugitive is not a Christian act (Romans 13), but a criminal action; (2) anyone who aids a criminal with breaking the law deserves to face legal consequences.

 ~ As I read about our current President’s farewell address, I find myself thankful he’s leaving the office. He is responsible for the worst state of affairs this country has seen since WWII.

 ~ If you think you have issues with your relationships, get a load at the domestic disturbances in 2016 reported in Wise County as listed by the Wise County Messenger.

'LOVE AND MARRIAGE

Deputies respond to many domestic disturbances involving couples over the course of the year. Here’s a sampling of the issues that led to someone calling police.

Are you ready to play
Cowboys and Terrorists?


 ~ The New York Times reported that the suspect in the deadly truck attack in Berlin had been denied asylum and “A German official said prosecutors had been observing him on suspicion that he was plotting an attack.” Observing him???? He was in their country illegally, why didn’t they go ahead and deport or detain him? One word: incompetence!

The article, if accurate, leads me to believe that government bureaucracies are ineffective, incompetent, sympathetic or just clueless when it come to protecting citizens from terrorists. America needs an old fashion round up and corralling of terrorist suspects here illegally. If they are here illegally, they are, by definition, criminals…their rights should not supersede our safety.

Some things never change. If liberals couldn’t blame others for their failures, they would not be able to continue promoting failed agendas – denial based on justification. Owning our failures is more important than taking credit for our successes, especially when determining a person’s character.

 ~ We aren’t the only country with leaders Tweeting stupid stuff. Pakistan’s defense minister threatened Israel with nuclear war after reading fake news that Israel’s defense minister threatened Pakistan. Aren’t these people paid to research these reports before making official remarks?

 ~ In the idiocy section today, a police union has urged Amazon to remove t-shirts that read “Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter” of their online marketplace. Personally, I believe they need to draw a bull’s-eye in the letter “O” to help prove the wearer’s belief.

 ~ A Drexel University professor is catching flack for this Christmas tweet: “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide”. Is this not a borderline threat? Since he’s Caucasian, might I suggest he set the example and start with the man in the mirror.

 ~ Do you think Obama will commute the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich? I believe he’s got a pretty good chance of getting released. How can you convince lawmakers to break the law for you if you hold them accountable for their actions?

 ~ A former Versace employee is suing them for discriminating against blacks. They supposedly had a special code when a black customer entered the store. He was fired two weeks after he was hired and is asking for asking for unpaid wages and damages. His lawsuit should be interesting if it goes to court.

Fifteen years ago, some friends of mine went in Versace while we were at Caesars in Vegas. They were greeted and told they were welcome to browse as long as they were buying and not just looking. After I heard that, I decided I would never darken their doorstep. What I didn’t do is insist they sue the store for discriminating against shoppers.

Trumpeteer


 ~ Trump successfully played and worked the media during his campaign. He did the same with Hillary, Democrats and the establishment. To many 'deplorable' Americans, he made them look like corrupt liars. Presently, it looks like he’s playing his haters and detractors. Constant negative criticism is extremely unattractive, that includes all participants, including myself.

  ~ As I listen to the current administration condemn foreign governments for broadcasting fake news into the USA, I find the hypocrisy outrageous. Our own government circulates as much or more fake news of anyone in the world. 90% of our media is controlled by 6 corporations, so it’s not that difficult.

The latest example of this is accusations that Putin and the Russian government helped hack the DNC. How do they cover up their propaganda? They create a distraction by condemning and blaming other countries for what they just did. A very effective tactic since Americans prefer to condemn others instead of looking in the mirror.

BTW, Julian Assange went on Hannity the other night and said that the DNC email hack was actually a leak from inside the DNC itself. Sadly, if he could prove this, no one would really care…

 ~ Why would our President permantly ban drilling oil exploration in the Artic?  Is this just another way of staying dependent on foreign oil and keeping his Middle Eastern buddies rolling in cash?

 ~ Canada is welcoming Syrian refugees into their country by the tens of thousands. So much for the fence idea… France has done this for years, why is no one listening to their outspoken reversal in allowing more in?

  ~ I cease to be amazed at the ingenuity of some Americans. There’s a woman selling positive pregnancy tests for $30 on Craigslist to pay for college. She’s averaging $200 a day. It’s a no-questions-asked arrangement. Blackmail? Extortion? Prank? Wow

Merry Christmas to all, enjoy your families, be blessed.

What's good for the goose?



 ~ I noticed that President Obama ordered our intelligence agencies to give a full report on Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election. While they're at it, I would like to see a detailed report on Middle Eastern countries' efforts to influence the 2008 and 2012 elections.

  ~ Democrats are pushing that Trump personally pay for security at his New York residence. Of course, it was okay for Joe Biden to charge the Secret Service $26,400 a year in rent to stay at a cottage next to his home in Delaware, not to mention the cost of his security detail…

  ~ The issue concerning minimum wage will force fast food restaurants and other chains to automate their kitchen and front counters, which is not that difficult, but expensive. I predict they will reduce their payroll by 65% and few liberals will complain or boycott. High ideals don’t always triumph over reality.

  ~ When discussing the death penalty, there is a huge divide between high ideals and true justice. Idealists want incarceration for 6-20 years (life or less) and let them return to society. Justice would dictate an eye for an eye, death in the same manner they chose to murder their victim.

There is an alternate justice: when releasing convicted murderers, rapists and child molesters, they should be made to live next door to the idealists who advocate leniency. It wouldn’t take a very long for them to rethink their viewpoint.

  ~ I’m not a big Ben Affleck fan, but I will be disappointed if he isn’t nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in “The Accountant”. The Academy probably won’t allow the movie to be nominated due to the violence and theme, but his acting was top notch. IMDB rates the flick as 7.6 out of 10, but I rate it a 10 and one of the top 3 movies I’ve seen this year. Duuuuuuude!

The art of creating fear and division...


I’ve been unusually quit the last few weeks since the holidays have kept me busy. I am amazed how many people are demonizing Trump and his actions. I have been comparing the news coverage on Fox and MSNBC, but am appalled at the hypocrisy.
Sharpton calling Trump’s job saving phone call a publicity stunt and praised Obama’s auto bailout deal. Hey big Al, Trump won, he doesn’t need the publicity. It looks like he’s keeping one of his main campaign promises, saving and bringing back American jobs.
Or Sharpton criticizing Trump for placing successful and wealthy people in his cabinet and other political positions because of the “profit motive”.  Very telling.  They don’t want successful people in those positions because they might solve problems that they don’t want solved. Wealthy people aren’t as money motivated as our very own Congress since they already have made their fortunes. And fortunes are being made through politics, ask Al Gore.
Or Washington politicians’ demonizing Trump for taking a congratulatory phone call from the president of Taiwan. Quite the hypocrisy, since they promote freedom in that country, especially from communist China. Keep in mind those same politicians back Cuba, Saudi Arabia and other communist regimes.
Or the condemnation of stringent vetting of immigration in the USA. Our own CIA director stated that terrorist organizations are using our current immigration system to infiltrate the USA. ISIS even told their supporters to use it. Where’s the outrage about this administration allowing over 2,000 immigrants into this country that Australia just denied on political grounds?
Or Democrats blaming Russia, Wikileaks, Fox News, FBI Director James Comey and several others for Hillary’s defeat for the POTUS. She called millions of Trump supporters “deplorable”. Her political, diplomatic, economic, financial, social, and Homeland Security records are what’s deplorable; yet they are supported by her establishment.
Other news reports I found interesting over the last few weeks include:

A Fort Myers gun dealer gave a gun to the bystander who and killed a man who attacked and was beating a police deputy. If I lived there I wouldn’t buy a gun from anyone else!

I took a prescription to CVS that my insurance didn’t cover. The prescription was $400 for a 6 week supply. I got online, priced a Canadian company, found a coupon online and got a 20 week supply for $298.  Is this unpatriotic or free enterprise?

The 550 foot windowless, concrete AT&T building in Manhattan has been identified as a NSA listening post. Does this surprise you?

Why isn’t the media all over Obama for his selections for the Presidential Medal of Honor? Or about his recent pardons for 79 drug offenders? Or the more than 1,000 criminals that he has commuted their sentence? Is the question "why" reasonable? 

Okay, I'm putting my soapbox in the closest and going back to work, enjoy your week and the holidays!

Poor losers are just plain losers...


Now that the election is over, oil can go back to the 50-60 mark. Over the last 16 years, the price of oil falls significantly before an election cycle. I don't think this is a coincidence. OPEC doesn't seem to be in a hurry to cut back.

As I expected, Trump is starting to crawfish on several of his campaign promises. Most notably, prosecuting Hillary and Obamacare.  He is not a conservative.

Didn't the Wall Street tycoons say that the market would crash if Trump were elected?  Premarket analysts say the market is set to open at a record high today, hmmmm....

BTW, the US dollar has been soaring ever since he won the election. Time to look at gold again.

If you think that building a wall at the Mexican border will stop illegal crossing, you haven't seen how fast they can build crossings to go over them. 

Hillary is blaming the FBI director for her loss.  Karma is a bitch.  Throw enough people under the bus and it will come up and bite ya... 

How devastated do you think Bill Clinton would be if they threw Hillary in jail? Can you imagine living with her?

A new prepper community is being planned in Ector Texas, complete with bunker condos and zip lines. Can you imagine the conversations with neighbors?

I have decided to use spotlights on the house instead of stringing Christmas lights on the roof. I thought the $150 investment was worth the reprieve from the annual beating of putting up and taking down the decorations.

Disinformation and misinformation
appeal to the masses

Best political ad in Texas this year! 

 ~ The NY Times was going all out targeting Trump and how he avoided paying personal taxes. The irony of the media portraying him as a bad guy for legally using tax laws to reduce his taxes versus the criminal conduct of his heroic adversary to get her elected is inexcusable.

 ~ Since when did the Justice Dept consider a criminal investigation by the FBI interference with an election? If Trump was involved, progressives would be screaming for immediate action.

However, the NY Times never mentioned the fact that:
"The Justice Department official in charge of informing Congress about the newly reactivated Hillary Clinton email probe is a political appointee and former private-practice lawyer who kept Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta “out of jail,” lobbied for a tax cheat later pardoned by President Bill Clinton and led the effort to confirm Attorney General Loretta Lynch."
 ~ Do you believe Hillary really wants the new emails disclosed to the American public immediately? Good public move, unless they actually release them.

 ~ Why would anyone believe that the POTUS election is rigged, especially after CNN severed ties with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile after Wikileaks hacked her emails, showing she shared questions in advance to the Clinton campaign at CNN-sponsored events. Assange needs a Nobel Prize.

Truth allows justice, without it, there can be no justice…Why wouldn't the Clinton campaign refuse the information and condemn her actions? I think you know the answer.

 ~I’m sure the Justice Dept was surprised when Ammon and Ryan Bundy were acquitted on conspiracy charges in the occupation of the wildlife refuge in Oregon. Three questions come to mind…
1. Do Oregon liberals believe big brother is overreaching? All 12 jurors “rejected everything about the government’s case”.
2. Would this have gone to trial if it were a BLM occupation?
3. Why are the BLM rioters not charged with conspiracy
 ~ You know you might be in trouble if you have to buy bottled air to keep from getting sick and stay healthy. Humans may all have to migrate to the southern hemisphere in 100 years.
