Why Don’t Liberals Make Sense?

I was thinking; If Liberals don’t believe in biological gender then why did they march for women’s rights?

I was thinking; If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

I was thinking; Since only 11 million people have Obama-Care, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot?

I was thinking; We should stop calling them all ‘Entitlements’. Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nausea are not Entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts and shouldn’t be called Entitlements at all. But, Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

I was thinking; If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?

I was thinking; After the London ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist attack, government officials arrested at least eight other ‘Lone Wolves’ who had conspired with the original ‘Lone Wolf’ in planning the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack. Why do they tell us even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured that the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1,000-plus ‘Lone Wolf’ attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam?

I was thinking; Why is each ISIS attack now a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama’s term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs?

I was thinking; If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they are Islamophobic?

I was thinking; If Democrats don’t want foreigners involved in our elections, why do they think it’s all right for illegals to vote?

I was thinking; Is the DNC is mad at Russia because it ‘thinks’ they are trying to manipulate our elections, or because Russia is exposing that the DNC is manipulating our elections?

I was thinking; How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?

I was thinking; Why is it that Democrats think Superdelegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College?

I was thinking; If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

I was thinking; If Hillary’s speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free speeches?

I was thinking; If you don’t want the FBI involved in elections, don’t nominate someone who’s being investigated by the FBI.

OK…I have stopped thinking for the time being. Have a great weekend.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAINWhy 

No ICE Please

Listening to the Liberals cry and accuse Trump and his administration reminds me of me, except I cried and accused Obama. The latest cry is to cut I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).  Libs don’t want laws, they rail against police, they yearn for open borders, and they refuse to obey existing laws. what do they want? It appears to me they want to return to the ancient days before kingdoms. Kingdoms were the first move toward needing borders to define what was under the king’s jurisdiction. Kingdoms are ruled by a of course, a king. The king was the executive, legislator, and adjudicator for all within his borders. Kings ruled with an iron fist, and all of his subjects were equal in stature, except of course the royal court, knights, jesters, shamans, etc. Those special people were special to cater to the kings needs.

The era before kings was a wild and wooly one. People were afraid of their own shadow, and if a stranger walked across your property, and you did not recognize him you killed him; “Better be safe than sorry” is the mantra people lived by. If the stranger wanted what you had he killed you and took it. Of course you had supreme liberty to do what you wanted to do. If you wanted to smoke pot, go smoke, if you wanted sex drop the first woman, girl, child you see and rape her on the spot. If you needed to eat you killed something. Sometimes it might have been your neighbor. Eventually people began to see value in living in groups, or tribes. Soon there was one among them who was strongest and he ruled the tribe. Eventually, he became king and ruled many tribes within a defined territory. Gee, they spoiled everything by making rules, and keeping order. The modern-day example of a liberal king right this moment is Nicolás Maduro, dictator of Venezuela. How can I tell he is king? He is getting fatter while his people are starving, it is the liberal way.

Here is more of what I see the liberals wanting:

  1. Open borders to allow the free movement of people, animals, and goods. People can roam freely like the native Indians did, how else will they be able to avoid punishment for a crime committed.
  2. No laws. What use are laws, they interfere with your imagined right to live as you please. It smacks to obey the ten commandments, and what fun would it be if “thou shalt not kill” was formally accepted as the norm. Killing seems to be an act that incites anger, and a need for revenge even in the most primitive people, therefore the need for open borders to allow escape from the avengers.
  3. Drugs, what drugs?  Free and open borders will allow men from strange countries to freely expand their trading enterprises without impairment. A nation on drugs would be a Utopian society. Everyone happy, and no one hurting you, unless of course you are coming down and can’t afford a fix immediately.
  4. I seem to recall that originally, the “C” in ICE stood for citizenship, but my memory isn’t what it was. No citizenship runs parallel with no borders, and no laws, What is citizenship anyway? I thought is was something that made you responsible for your country. Citizenship implies that you make laws, enforce laws, and obey laws.
  5. Liberals do not like order. Meaning populations that keep laws and civilly debate differences. Order-less societies can dispense their own brand of justice when some little thing ticks them off. If you don’t like the way your neighbor mows his law, shoot the bastard. Oh, excuse me, liberals don’t like guns. Choke him to death instead, but dispense your punishment for having committed an act that upset you.
  6. Liberals don’t like the four letter word spelling “work.” They seem to enjoy living off the land, except the land is a made up of a mass of people in congested cities, and not in the wild where you have to use your body’s energy to seek sustenance. They would sooner stand on the corner with a hand printed cardboard sign begging for something to eat like, “Work for Food.” I have never seen one of these people jump into a car by invitation to go work for a sandwich.
  7. Liberals riot against the separation of children from families, i.e. somebody else’s family, yet they demonstrate to have free, paid by you, abortions. In my mind that is the greatest separation of your child from your family. Isn’t divorce a form of family separation? When the parents decide to split from each other by abandoning their marriage vows until “death do us part” the kids they abandon the kids they made. I see too many screwed up kids today resulting from broken homes. Granted, single women do a great job of raising their kids, but it isn’t the same as when two parents (one man one woman) do the job.

Getting back to the protest to cut I.C.E. I want to rail against some other bureaucracies that are more important to drop before we move to I.C.E. For starters, let’s eliminate the Department of Education. Oh no! We can’t do that we have to educate our kids. Well before there was a huge educational complex in Washington to oversee what we learn we had schools, and they did an outstanding job of teaching us. We learned more before the Department of Education than we do now. The difference is now, the Dept of Ed has a huge say in what our kids learn. For instance; before we learned reading, math, history, geography, penmanship, English, and art. Today we have new math, (the long way to learn how to do basic additions and subtraction. It saves all the brain power kids needed to spend memorizing their tables.), sociology (instead of geography), political correctness (let’s not upset anyone), gun control, what history should have been instead of what it was, how bad white people enslaved black people for their gain, how bad white people stole North America from the native Indians (oh, just to keep things streamlined let’s leave out how bad white people from Spain and France) committed genocide in Central America to find gold. Let us also leave out the fact that for thousands of years one of the rewards of winning a war was to enslave the losers (not all wars were against black people). Let’s make sure that we teach our majority white population that they have special privilege over all other races because of what transpired in history. Then there is the omission of how one European country decided to eliminate people with specific genetic make-ups that they thought were undesirable. How was this science conducted? By starvation, shooting, gassing, etc. The latest is to teach Islam, and to justify doing so under the realm of teaching world religions, except there isn’t enough time in the year to get to the other world religions, and the final exam just happens to be the same test given to converts to Islam (Then make a big argument for separation church and state).  Let’s make sure we feed these kids a good breakfast, and lunch to make them less dependent on their parents, and more dependent of the Department of Education..

Another area the government meddles with is money for teachers. The idea is that all fifty states should have the same level of education. Some states are more poor than others, so let’s make them all the same so every kid is equally smart. If you look at the level of smarts that the kids have against the money spent by Uncle over the past forty years the picture is nothing short of dismal failure. Remember the adage “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?” Well for the past forty years we have done nothing but throw money at the educational system without improving a single leaning level. Where does the money go? Good question. I don’t think the educational complex wants anyone to know. Why? Because we would realize that the money goes into education-administration, and not into education of kids. There are more PhD level workers in our schools today than ever before. Why? Because teacher’s get paid by their level of education, the more you know the more you make. Another problem is that their fringe benefits are all tied to the same education. A PhD retires with a larger pension than a B.S degree. I am still not convinced that this is the problem, because the teachers should be state of the art in their skills. What about the unseen administration: like physical plants, i.e. school buildings etc. Chicago maintains a special corporation for handling their school buildings and properties. Every large school district in the country does the same. These agencies spend money on new schools, and upgrades to the old ones, but if Chicago is an example, they have tons of 100-year-old schools and very few new ones. What the hell are they spending money on?  I can almost tell when the teachers union will strike by what month it is. August is prime time just before the schools open. Where does that money go? Certainly not to the teachers they are alway complaining about how poor they are. Meanwhile the State government is always crying about the under funded pensions they have for public sector workers like teachers, police, and firemen. That one blows my mind. Where does it all go?

It is time to hit the reset button on education and get rid of the Department of Education from Washington. Starting from scratch would be a hell of a lot smarter than throwing more money at a losing proposition.

I could go on further with other bureaucracies that are equally useless, but I’m getting tired of bitching about things because the only voice I have is my vote and election time isn’t for another few months.

Forget I.C.E. and go for the Department of Education, the EPA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or the Department of Agriculture. I can write an equal to or better rant on each of these crappy bureaucracies, but I won’t because I ruined my Sunday writing this one.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement would be last on my list.

Civil War

Grump Joes Place Blog just celebrated ten years. Somewhere in those ten years, probably around 2008 when we began the process of electing a socialist as our president, I posted my opinion that the USA is headed for civil war. Today, I received this piece titled This Civil War by Daniel Greenfield. In it Greenfield explains exactly why we are not headed for civil war but rather we are in a civil war.

I actually posted Greenfield’s essay once before, but it rings so try that I want my readers to review it again. I agree with him that we are in a civil war fighting to save our country from a dictatorship. If we allow the dictatorship to happen we might as well use our guns to blow our heads off because  the country won’t be worth living in anymore.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This Is a Civil War.

There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C.

But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper.

If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.

But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics.

Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins.

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.

That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

I know you’re all thinking about President Trump.

He won and the establishment, the media, the democrats, rejected the results. They came up with a whole bunch of conspiracy theories to explain why he didn’t really win. It was the Russians. And the FBI. And sexism, Obama, Bernie Sanders and white people.

It’s easier to make a list of the things that Hillary Clinton doesn’t blame for losing the election. It’s going to be a short list.

A really short list. Herself.

The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this.

The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.

Trump didn’t really win the election. Bush didn’t really win the election. Every time a Republican president won an election this century, the Democrats insist he didn’t really win.

Now say a third Republican president wins an election in say, 2024.

What are the odds that they’ll say that he didn’t really win? Right now, it looks like 100 percent.

What do sure odds of the Dems rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win.

It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

That’s a civil war.

There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement.

You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship.

Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to the left, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate.

The attacks on Trump show that elections don’t matter to the left.

Republicans can win an election, but they have a major flaw. They’re not leftists.

That’s what the leftist dictatorship looks like.

The left lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats.

Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country.

The left’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If it’s in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited.

He’s a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented.

A Democrat in the White House has “discretion” to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the “discretion” to reverse him.

That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run.

When Democrats control the Senate, then Harry Reid and his boys and girls are the sane, wise heads that keep the crazy guys in the House in check.

But when Republicans control the Senate, then it’s an outmoded body inspired by racism.

When Democrats run the Supreme Court, then it has the power to decide everything in the country. But when Republicans control the Supreme Court, it’s a dangerous body that no one should pay attention to.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws.

Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.

The Constitution has something to say about that.

Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land.

This is what I call a moving dictatorship.

There isn’t one guy in a room somewhere issuing the orders. Instead there’s a network of them. And the network moves around.

If the guys and girls in the network win elections, they can do it from the White House. If they lose the White House, they’ll do it from Congress. If they don’t have either one, they’ll use the Supreme Court.

If they don’t have either the White House, Congress or the Supreme Court, they’re screwed. Right?

Nope.

They just go on issuing them through circuit courts and the bureaucracy. State governments announce that they’re independent republics. Corporations begin threatening and suing the government.

There’s no consistent legal standard. Only a political one.

Under Obama, states weren’t allowed to enforce immigration laws. That was the job of the Federal government. And the states weren’t allowed to interfere with the job that the Feds weren’t doing.

Okay.

Now Trump comes into office and starts enforcing immigration laws again. And California announces it’s a sanctuary state and passes a law punishing businesses that cooperate with Federal immigration enforcement.

So what do we have here?

It’s illegal for states to enforce immigration law because that’s the province of the Federal government. But it’s legal for states to ban the Federal government from enforcing immigration law.

The only consistent pattern here is that the left decided to make it illegal to enforce immigration law.

It may do that sometimes under the guise of Federal power or states rights. But those are just fronts. The only consistent thing is that leftist policies are mandatory and opposing them is illegal.

Everything else is just a song and dance routine.

That’s how it works. It’s the moving dictatorship. It’s the tyranny of the network.

You can’t pin it down. There’s no one office or one guy. It’s a network of them. It’s an ideological dictatorship. Some people call it the deep state. But that doesn’t even begin to capture what it is.

To understand it, you have to think about things like the Cold War and Communist infiltration.

A better term than Deep State is Shadow Government.

Parts of the Shadow Government aren’t even in the government. They are wherever the left holds power. It can be in the non-profit sector and among major corporations. Power gets moved around like a New York City shell game. Where’s the quarter? Nope, it’s not there anymore.

The shadow government is an ideological network. These days it calls itself by a hashtag #Resistance. Under any name, it runs the country. Most of the time we don’t realize that. When things are normal, when there’s a Democrat in the White House or a bunch of Democrats in Congress, it’s business as usual.

Even with most Republican presidents, you didn’t notice anything too out of the ordinary. Sure, the Democrats got their way most of the time. But that’s how the game is usually played.

It’s only when someone came on the scene who didn’t play the game by the same rules, that the network exposed itself. The shadow government emerged out of hiding and came for Trump.

And that’s the civil war.

This is a war over who runs the country. Do the people who vote run the country or does this network that can lose an election, but still get its agenda through, run the country?

We’ve been having this fight for a while. But this century things have escalated.

They escalated a whole lot after Trump’s win because the network isn’t pretending anymore. It sees the opportunity to delegitimize the whole idea of elections.

Now the network isn’t running the country from cover. It’s actually out here trying to overturn the results of an election and remove the president from office.

It’s rejected the victories of two Republican presidents this century.

And if we don’t stand up and confront it, and expose it for what it is, it’s going to go on doing it in every election. And eventually Federal judges are going to gain enough power that they really will overturn elections.

It happens in other countries. If you think it can’t happen here, you haven’t been paying attention to the left.

Right now, Federal judges are declaring that President Trump isn’t allowed to govern because his Tweets show he’s a racist. How long until they say that a president isn’t even allowed to take office because they don’t like his views?

That’s where we’re headed.

Civil wars swing around a very basic question. The most basic question of them all. Who runs the country?

Is it me? Is it you? Is it Grandma? Or is it bunch of people who made running the government into their career?

America was founded on getting away from professional government. The British monarchy was a professional government. Like all professional governments, it was hereditary. Professional classes eventually decide to pass down their privileges to their kids.

America was different. We had a volunteer government. That’s what the Founding Fathers built.

This is a civil war between volunteer governments elected by the people and professional governments elected by… well… uh… themselves.

Of the establishment, by the establishment and for the establishment.

You know, the people who always say they know better, no matter how many times they screw up, because they’re the professionals. They’ve been in Washington D.C. politics since they were in diapers.

Freedom can only exist under a volunteer government. Because everyone is in charge. Power belongs to the people.

A professional government is going to have to stamp out freedom sooner or later. Freedom under a professional government can only be a fiction. Whenever the people disagree with the professionals, they’re going to have to get put down. That’s just how it is. No matter how it’s disguised, a professional government is tyranny.

Ours is really well disguised, but if it walks like a duck and locks you up like a duck, it’s a tyranny.

Now what’s the left.

Forget all the deep answers. The left is a professional government.

It’s whole idea is that everything needs to be controlled by a big central government to make society just. That means everything from your soda sizes to whether you can mow your lawn needs to be decided in Washington D.C.

Volunteer governments are unjust. Professional governments are fair. That’s the credo of the left.

Its network, the one we were just discussing, it takes over professional governments because it shares their basic ideas. Professional governments, no matter who runs them, are convinced that everything should run through the professionals. And the professionals are usually lefties. If they aren’t, they will be.

Just ask Mueller and establishment guys like him.

What infuriates professional government more than anything else? An amateur, someone like President Trump who didn’t spend his entire adult life practicing to be president, taking over the job.

President Trump is what volunteer government is all about.

When you’re a government professional, you’re invested in keeping the system going. But when you’re a volunteer, you can do all the things that the experts tell you can’t be done. You can look at the mess we’re in with fresh eyes and do the common sense things that President Trump is doing.

And common sense is the enemy of government professionals. It’s why Trump is such a threat.

A Republican government professional would be bad enough. But a Republican government volunteer does that thing you’re not supposed to do in government… think differently.

Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can’t serve in if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club.

And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren’t in the club with him.

Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.

That’s not a free country.

It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win, won.

We’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and leftist professional government.

The pros have made it clear that they’re not going to accept election results anymore. They’re just going to make us do whatever they want. They’re in charge and we better do what they say.

That’s the war we’re in. And it’s important that we understand that.

Because this isn’t a shooting war yet. And I don’t want to see it become one.

And before the shooting starts, civil wars are fought with arguments. To win, you have to understand what the big picture argument is. It’s easy to get bogged down in arguments that don’t matter or won’t really change anything.

This is the argument that changes everything.

Do we have a government of the people and by the people? Or do we have a tyranny of the professionals?

The Democrats try to dress up this argument in leftist social justice babble. Those fights are worth having. But sometimes we need to pull back the curtain on what this is really about.

They’ve tried to rig the system. They’ve done it by gerrymandering, by changing the demographics of entire states through immigration, by abusing the judiciary and by a thousand different tricks.

But civil wars come down to an easy question. Who runs the country?

They’ve given us their answer and we need to give them our answer.

Both sides talk about taking back the country. But who are they taking it back for?

The left uses identity politics. It puts supposed representatives of entire identity groups up front. We’re taking the country back for women and for black people, and so on and so forth…

But nobody elected their representatives.

Identity groups don’t vote for leaders. All the black people in the country never voted to make Shaun King al Al Sharpton their representative. And women sure as hell didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

What we have in America is a representative government. A representative government makes freedom possible because it actually represents people, instead of representing ideas.

The left’s identity politics only represents ideas. Nobody gets to vote on them.

Instead the left puts out representatives from different identity politics groups, there’s your gay guy, there’s three women, there’s a black man, as fronts for their professional government system.

When they’re taking back the country, it’s always for professional government. It’s never for the people.

When conservatives fight to take back the country, it’s for the people. It’s for volunteer government the way that the Founding Fathers wanted it to be.

This is a civil war over whether the American people are going to govern themselves. Or are they going to be governed.

Are we going to have a government of the people, by the people and for the people… or are we going to have a government.

The kind of government that most countries have where a few special people decide what’s best for everyone.

We tried that kind of government under the British monarchy. And we had a revolution because we didn’t like it.

But that revolution was met with a counterrevolution by the left. The left wants a monarchy. It wants King Obama or Queen Oprah.

It wants to end government of the people, by the people and for the people. That’s what they’re fighting for. That’s what we’re fighting against. The stakes are as big as they’re ever going to get. Do elections matter anymore?

I live in the state of Ronald Reagan. I can go visit the Ronald Reagan Library any time I want to. But today California has one party elections. There are lots of elections and propositions. There’s all the theater of democracy, but none of the substance. Its political system is as free and open as the Soviet Union.

And that can be America.

The Trump years are going to decide if America survives. When his time in office is done, we’re either going to be California or a free nation once again.

The civil war is out in the open now and we need to fight the good fight. And we must fight to win.

Richard Clowan & Frances Fox Piven

Back in the nineteen sixties a couple of sociology teachers Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a theory that would eliminate poverty. It became known as the Cloward-Piven strategy. They concluded that the people of the United States underutilized the many social programs set up by the government. They figured that if the welfare systems became overloaded with lawful claims that the government would go broke and ultimately install an equal annual salary system for everyone. Equality for all is a very strong socialistic concept, yet, the Cloward-Piven strategy is still very strong among Democrats. The latest President to operate on that concept is Obama. He never told us what his intentions were except to say he would “transform” the country, but there is strong evidence that he pushed us in the direction of bankruptcy.

I remember once during Obama’s campaign a reporter chasing after the Reverend Wright asking him what he thought Obama was going to do. In effect Wright’s response was “he’s gonna help an awful lot of poor people.”

What makes me think O was applying the Cloward-Piven strategy? Let me list a few ways:

  1. He inherited one of the worst economies ever, yet did very little to get it started again except to ask Congress for a trillion dollars to invest in “shovel ready jobs.’ We all knew he was lying through is pearly whites, and much later he admitted that there was no such thing as a shovel ready job. The extreme recession caused millions of people to collect unemployment and eventually they went on welfare.
  2. When the economy settled in to its dismal level and people gave up looking for jobs, he pushed the use of dis-ability as a way to keep them in dollars.
  3. He promoted the use of food stamps, and offered free phones to people who couldn’t afford them. The bill kept rising.
  4. Obama unlawfully disregarded the immigration laws and allowed a flood of people to enter the country without meeting any of the lawful requirements. We actually advertised in Central American countries that the gates were open. What happened was a flood of immigrants which we couldn’t handle at the borders, so he improvised ways to get them into the interior. The Feds packed plane loads of illegals and shipped them to cities around the country. None of them had a pot to pee in so they were shown the way to the government office to apply for benefits.
  5. Kids who came over the border without an adult were suddenly flooding the offices. They also needed help, and it was set up for them. Kids have to go to school but none of them could speak our language so we provided schools with teachers who spoke their language. The numbers on the cash register were really spinning by this time.
  6. Even with all the people not working on unemployment, welfare, and disability in combination with the flood of new people allowed in illegally he wasn’t able to break the bank. So what did he do?
  7. Suddenly, there were wars in the Mid-east and millions of people were displaced from their homes and needed places to go. Obama accepted millions of refugees and imported them into the interior of the US at night into towns all around the country. Yep, all of them were provided with housing, and benefits from good old Uncle Sam’s cash register.

With all this drain on our economy why didn’t we go bankrupt? It didn’t happen because of several reasons. The first one is that Uncle uses a printing press to make money when he runs short. The depression cause interest rates to drop to zero and that gave him the ability to borrow from countries like China, and Japan for free. It won’t be long before those interest rates on the borrowed money will rise and we will have to pay most of our income to interest. Another reason for not going broke was because of you, the working stiff. You were paying a couple of different ways. The first was through rising taxes, local, state and federal. A second way was happening in a very sneaky way and you didn’t realize it was happening to you. The cost of stuff was rising. The milk you buy didn’t get more valuable but it cost more. Try buying a pound of hamburger. Everything we buy was rising in price. Why? It had nothing to do with the value or the demand of the stuff you were buying it has to do with the fact that the value of your money has decreased. With all of the printed money going to pay off loans and to pay for all the welfare it drove down the value of a dollar. The five dollar bill is the new single, and a twenty is the new fiver.

I am on a fixed income and I have noticed the drain on my finances every time I go to the grocery store. A few years ago I spent seventy dollars for groceries and now I wind up paying three times that for the same amount of food. Thank God we are a very rich nation and were able to sustain ourselves as this drain goes on. I don’t think it would have been another year before we finally went bankrupt.

Think about it folks. How would you like to make what everyone else in the country is making? Sure the government would guarantee that you got the same amount every month, but I don’t think you’d be getting enough to live in the style you have become accustomed to. Think also, about the fact that you would work for your equal share and another soul will get the exact same amount for staying home. We will have to thank Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven for visualizing such an idyllic world.

The saddest part of this scenario is that Bernie Sanders ran against Hillary in the 2016 election  primary and his popularity was based on him selling the youth of this country on the concept of equal annual income for everyone.

A Christmas Poem

HAL522.pvw

  Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas – no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday ‘.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears

You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMASnot Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!

A New Passion

I have found a new passion, another era of history to read about and to absorb. A few weeks ago I read Pillars of the Earth a fictional history of a man who spent his life building a cathedral in eleventh century England. I wrote a short review on this blog and one of my faithful readers who makes me smile everyday when he publishes a cartoon told me about the Camulod Chronicles. I am hooked. This period is in the fourth century and describes life in the Roman Empire in Britain. I will now add the remaining six stories in the series to my reading list.

All I can say to the citizens of the world who want their lives totally ruled by government is they should read these books. People have revered Liberty since the beginning of man on earth. Liberty is what eventually takes over after man has succeeded in his goal of making everyone so equal that equality becomes oppressive. There is one thing that intrigues me, there is always a group of citizens who become filthy rich while the rest of us are so pre-occupied being equal to notice how oppressed we are.
