She Hit It Outta’ the Park

A truly great essay and a genius level analysis of our millennial generation. How can our youngsters truly know what living poor is all about? They can’t know and never will know until they get into the world and have to fend for themselves. Prosperity is their norm. Please read the attached essay by Alyssa Ahlgren

To Whom It All Concerns….
My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us
I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about.
I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to fix the so-called injustices of capitalism.
I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.
We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.
These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought.
We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards.
Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.
Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.
Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”
Never saw American prosperity!  Let that sink in.
When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth.
Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.
My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity.
I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.
Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity?
We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished.
Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism. Why?
The answer is this, my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.
We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones.
We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When one lives in prosperity from the minute they are born, how can they understand poverty? People of my generation witnessed the struggle of our parents working to give us what they never had. My grandfather John sent my Dad to America because he “could not feed him”. My Dad left, and never looked back. He knew what poverty was.

My dad had an aversion to potatoes, and when I challenged him once on why he didn’t take any potatoes at the Sunday dinner table he told me “I ate enough potatoes in my home country.” He left when he was seventeen. In my mind that is a whole lot of potatoes to eat in seventeen short years.

As an adult, I traveled to the far east on my job. I visited some pretty poor places in Malaysia and Indonesia. I came home with one major impression. These people work for pennies per hour because they are hungry and those pennies represent more money than they have ever seen before.  In the USA we have people who protest the poor wages in these far away countries yet our poverty level salary would make the people in those countries very rich. As my mother reminded me often “we have a loaf of bread under each arm and we complain that we don’t have anything to eat.”

What socialist leaning millennials do not understand is that to bring the level of poverty up in the world will also mean reducing the wealth of our nation. So the complaint of never having seen prosperity will reverse to seeing poverty in a grossly mis-calculated backfire.

Tap Dancing Debbie

I can’t take it anymore!

I just shut off a news program after the host asked Congresswoman Debbie Dingle from Michigan if the Democrats were going to start focusing on getting things done instead of trying to bring down the president. Ms DIngle was remarkably flexible in her change to a new subject. Instead of answering the question she shifted to why she won’t vote to support Trump’s deal with the Mexicans. She insists that there must be some form of verification by the Mexicans that they are doing as promised. Probably not a bad idea, but not enough to warrant keeping the deal from going through.

The president’s new tactic to circumvent our badly written immigration laws shows his diligence in trying to solve a problem created by our legislators. A bigger problem is that our legislators will not act to revise the laws. They merely sit on their hands and tell us how overworked they are and how they need a raise. They did have time to propose a bill to raise their salaries. I guess facing TV cameras and answering questions by cable news companies is straining them. Oh how I feel for these poor politicians. I’d say that ninety percent of Americans would be very happy making $178,000 per year. I am a college educated engineer who spent forty years managing as many as a hundred professionals in a stressful manufacturing operation and I never came anywhere close to making that much. I got fifteen work days off to spend with  my family. These congressional creatures work 145 days out of 261 (116 days off). My eyes are dripping alligator tears for these poor, poor overworked minions.

Sadly, we can’t fire them. Our laws protect them from being fired. We the people can recall a political figure, but the effort to do so is monumental. We could impeach them, but this process is also monumental. There is a desperation move referred to as the tax payer relief shot, but that is counter productive to the solitary implementer. So we are stuck with our single vote every two years for congressmen and six years for senators. The trouble with the vote is that these good soldiers are so attached and faithful to their parties that voting them out becomes a mortal sin for the voter. Political parties are known for spending millions to keep their faithful in office.

My options are limited to complaining on this blog with the hopes that some reader willl be converted to my point of view and vote with me.

If you are too young to know what a tap dancer is watch this video it will brighten your day.

Dear Senator Durbin

At the end of March, 2019 I sent an E-mail to my Senators Dick Durbin, and Tammy Duckworth asking that they fund President Trump’s request to build a wall at our southern border. I knew I’d get an answer from Durbin because his term expires in 2020, and he needs votes. He didn’t disappoint me he wrote the following:

Dear Grumpa Joe:

          Thank you for contacting me regarding funding for a new border wall.  I appreciate hearing from you.

          At midnight, on December 22, 2018, President Trump shut down the government because funding for a new border wall was not included in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 appropriation bills.  On January 25, 2019, President Trump signed a temporary spending bill passed by Congress, which funded government agencies through February 15, and brought the longest government shutdown in history, and the third government shutdown of President Trump’s term, to an end.

          On January 30, 2019, the first public meeting of the FY 2019 Homeland Security Appropriations Conference Committee, of which I was a part, took place.  I called on Democratic and Republican conferees to focus on smart and effective border security measures instead of the President’s threats to shut down the government again without border wall funding.

          On February 16, President Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 116-6), which provides funding for the Department of Homeland Security for the remainder of FY 2019.  This bipartisan package rejected President Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion for a border wall and makes responsible investments in border security.

          I support strong and effective border security.  The type of border security that Democrats have long-supported, including increased funding for technology, is what experts have said is needed and actually works.  What doesn’t work is an ineffective, expensive medieval wall.  While the President claims he wants to build this wall to stop the flow of drugs, his own Administration has stated that the vast majority of lethal narcotics that cross our southern border come through legal ports of entry.  That is why our bipartisan agreement to fund the government provides additional funding for technology and Customs personnel—real solutions that will help stop the narcotics that are killing our children. This is real border security to address a real threat to America—the opioid epidemic.

          Second, we insisted on humanitarian assistance such as medical care to ensure those who come to our border are treated in a humane way.  Sadly, two small children came to our border and died before they could receive the medical assistance they needed. I do not ever want to see that happen again.

          Finally, we rejected the Administration’s demand for changes in our asylum laws that would undermine our legal and moral obligations to provide safe haven to families and children fleeing persecution.

          We must turn away from President Trump’s fear-mongering approach to those who come to our border, many of whom are just seeking a better life as many of our ancestors did.  The President’s approach is not representative of the best of America.  It represents the kind of division that does not recognize the heritage, that makes us who we are as a nation.

Thank you again for contacting me.  I will keep your concerns in mind as the Senate continues to discuss effective border security.  Please feel free to keep in touch.<span “=””>

 

Sincerely,
 
Richard J. Durbin
United States Senator
RJD/mt

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Here is my response to his response.

Dear Senator Durbin:

Thank you for answering my e-mail in which I directed you to vote in favor of funding the wall along the southern border with Mexico.

I understand the trauma you suffered at the hands of President Trump as he took the desperate move to spur Congress into action by shutting down the government. By the way, I totally agree with President Trump’s actions and policies. I totally disagree with the ineffective moves you have made.

President Trump has done more in the past two years to secure the border by action than 100 senators and some four hundred plus congressmen have in the last thirty years. Trump is a true patriot, and you my dear Senator are merely a minion in the world of Progressive Socialism.

Your attitude toward directing billions of dollars into Star Wars like technology to secure the border over simple solid common sense solutions like a “medieval” border wall only proves to me that you are incapable of successfully accomplishing the job the people of Illinois sent you to Washington to do.

As Medieval and unprogressive as walls may seem to you they do work. The Great Wall of China separating Mongolia from China, Hadrian’s wall separating England from Scotland, or more recently the Iron Curtain Separating East from West Germany, or the Berlin Wall splitting a  great city in half are all examples of walls that work. More recently look at the wall Hungary erected in the last two years to keep illegal Mid-Easterners from invading. Walls work! and they are more durable than any modern technology system you will spend billions on, and which will be obsolete by the time of implementation like all things electronic.

You claim experts say technology is a more effective means to secure the border, just who are these experts? Our own department of Homeland Security experts working on the border claim the opposite. I challenge you to set up a debate between your experts and the lowly people from HS. This would make great entertainment and would be educational for you and me both.

You proudly write that you insist on humanitarian assistance to care for sick children coming across. Then you blame Trump for the death of two kids who were moments from death when they arrived. I don’t blame Trump for not performing a miracle nor do I believe any democrat can perform miracles. I do believe the parents of these children should take full responsibility for dragging a deathly sick child hundreds of miles across dangerous territory.

Another point is your statement that you “. . .rejected the Administration’s demand for changes in our asylum laws that would undermine our legal and moral obligations to provide safe haven to families and children fleeing persecution.” First I want you to tell me what persecution these people endured? Second, I want you to tell me how changing our asylum law would do so poorly?

Two weeks ago I watched a video interview with reporters in Honduras who flat-out claimed that the people were not leaving because of persecution, but to find work. The same interviewer uncovered facts that the caravans are highly organized by Left wing Progressive groups tied to the United States. In my view this makes the caravans armies recruited by treasonous enemies from within the US.

If we keep on doing the same thing over and over hoping to change the outcome, but we keep on getting the same outcome we are not being rational; Insanity is defined that way.  It is better to change laws that are not working than it is to leave them be. In other words do something. In my professional life I always mentored my engineers that “I would rather be criticized for doing something than for doing nothing.”

On the subject of controlling drugs coming into the country I recall an effort by the United States referred to as the War on Drugs which has spent well over a trillion dollars since inception. What have we gotten out of that? I think that war is old enough that you are probably one of those who voted for it.

Your attitude about President Trump’s fear mongering approach to those who come to our border is hilarious. Trump is merely trying to follow the rule of law and the system is clearly unable to handle the load. He is not trying to be inhumane, nor is he trying to exclude immigrants. He is trying to include them within the frame-work of the laws you have written to allow them in. Your belligerence toward changing the laws shows me that you don’t give a rat’s ass about these people. The best of America took place in the early twentieth century when the people of the United States welcomed millions of immigrants, but even then there was a limit and the government had to stop immigration to give them time to ASSIMILATE. Then there was a matter of welcoming millions of soldiers back from WWII to give them opportunity to work after fighting for five years for world freedom.

Understand that we the people of America are not as stupid as you believe we are. We understand situations and truly want to do the right thing, but sadly we have chosen the wrong people to carry out actions needed. You and all of your democrat senators as well as too many republicans should be ashamed of your performance about making America the greatest country in the Universe.

Senator Durbin you have served for over thirty years, you should know by now that a divided government does not stand. We have the most divided government we have had since the civil war. We are currently experiencing a second civil war. One half of the country refuses to recognize the President as our leader, and take only action to block his every move. The actions taken by the two political parties are in opposition to each other, and not united for the good of the country.

Listen to me SHOUT at you once again! FUND THE BORDER WALL, and SUPPORT  PRESIDENT TRUMP 100 PERCENT, it is the right thing to do.

As respectfully as an angry man can be.

Grumpa Joe

Pike Paired With a Cab Rated 92

It is Friday evening, and I am digesting a wonderful dinner of Walleye Pike paired with a 92 rated Cabernet. Spoiling this reverie is news that peaked this week.

First is democrat hypocrisy on the rule of law. Democrats pay attention only to laws that are to their benefit, and only when it is to the their advantage. For example they pay no heed to immigration laws. It is to their advantage to increase voters, and the law be damned if the new voters are citizens or not. People on our side of the border are voters right? Wrong, only those who are citizens have the right to vote. Several thousand migrants are sneaking into the country this month. The sneaking part means they are here illegally.

A second hypocrisy is the law against racial hatred. This law only works when a white man commits a hate crime against a black man. When it involves a black man committing a hoax against a white man it is okay. One Jussie Smollett got off free this week after someone interfered with his prosecution. In my book he had some help from a friend who remains unknown and this smacks of black privilege. I’m sorry, it is only white privilege that counts in the court of racial law.

The third item really frosted my attitude. Our former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama’s shill who enforced only laws that gave O an advantage over the white guys. Eric, today, stated that America was never great. Excuse me? Where have you been living dude? If America is so bad get your skinny ass out of the country to somewhere that is great. When you get there send me a note I may want to join you because this country has too many ungrateful dudes like you who thrive on hate. How did you get so rich and educated? Was it because America didn’t give you advantages?

Eric Holder ignored laws even when he was in charge of upholding all the laws of the country. His primary focus seemed to be promoting black privilege as a way of getting back at the white man for having slaves during the period of history when it was fashionable to own slaves. Forget about all the countries in the world that believed slaves were property to own, and absolutely forget about the countries of today that still believe in owning slaves. His only bitch is about our country built by a bunch of guys who owned slaves two hundred and forty-three years ago. After all that time he really thinks he will change the world by getting rid of our Constitution in favor of a system where on man rules all. In this case he would let his people run amok while oppressing whites just to get even.

The fourth item is a campaign plank being promulgated by at least one candidate, i.e. reparation for all blacks. Give them money because they are the descendants of slaves. This idea is not new and people love it. Who wouldn’t? Since the entire country was slave built with sweat they deserve a piece of the wealth let’s estimate the value of the country and divide it among the descendants. The problem I have with this is when do they stop the extortion?  What is to say that when the initial descendants get reparation dies off, that new generations will climb on the same band wagon. It is my opinion that the pain suffered by today’s young slave relatives is minimal at best. Any reparation they would get doesn’t change the suffering of their great-great-great grandparents.

The racial divide still exists but it is radically changed for the better. It is an evolutionary process, and the government has accelerated it by adding civil rights laws, hate laws, equal opportunity laws, and affirmative action laws. All these laws are reparation giving the slave generations a hand up.

Now it is time for the disadvantaged to begin assimilating into the culture. Millions are doing that, but there are guys like Eric Holder who are not satisfied with progress. It is time for guys like Eric and Jussie to man up and get their people who aren’t making progress to make the same progress they have made. At the same time it is time for Jussie and Eric to make further progress by using their personal skills and to leave the race card off the table.

What Mexico Will Pay For

President Trump is in trouble now that he is building the wall. It seems, we the people are not satisfied that he is batting well over .750 on his campaign promises, we insist that he get Mexico to pay for the wall (a baseball player with a 0.750 batting average will earn millions of dollars). It is, and was my opinion that Mexico will never pay for the wall or any part of  it. They will however spend some money to build a new Federal Highway number E-W for East-West. This new super highway will stretch from the Pacific ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. It will parallel within the shadow of any wall the United States will complete.

Why will they spend money on an East West road? Simply to give people a way to get to the end of the wall segments. Central Americans and Mexicans are very resourceful and will find ways to get into the Promised Land. Think about the money the Coyotes will make transporting bus loads of immigrants along a high-speed corridor avoiding all surveillance by the US Border patrol. The bus will stop at various points along the route to allow passengers off within a short walking distance of the border. If and when the wall gets longer, the bus merely travels to the end of the new section to let the passengers off. Busses will move East to West with occasional reverses to confuse any surveillance of border activity.

Currently our border patrol is advising the President to build sections of fence that will cut crossings at the points most used. I have already read reports that crossers are moving to the end of the fence to walk over the border. With a high-speed air-conditioned bus to move them, and to confound border patrol technology in these areas the flow of illegals will increase. Coyotes will outwit the border patrol by running decoy tour busses along the fence and by stopping randomly to have a picnic.

Socialists in Congress (often called democrats) will continue to stall, cry, bellow, and rant that there is no need for a wall. The Communist manifesto decrees that the country be divided (“A House against itself cannot divided cannot stand.”  Abraham Lincoln). Lincoln was not a communist but communists want to destroy America and dividing the nation is one of their goals. Obama further divided us and his party is continuing the legacy.

The President will continue to build the wall in segments as he finds money. In the meantime thousands of people will continue to enter the country through the breaks. They will get in using every port of entry. Next, we will need a fence across the Northern border. Once we complete the northern fence, Intruders will use ships to land on beach heads along both coasts, like the Army did at Normandy. I can also imagine people jumping out of airplanes and parachuting in.

What we have in our country is something everyone wants, i.e. freedom and liberty, but we are also a Nations of laws. We welcome new people but we want them to come lawfully. How many countries in the world allow one million immigrants to enter yearly? The answer is one, the USA.

Artificial Intelligence vs Common Sense

 

It has been several years since my last cartoon. I took a rest from drawing political opinion cartoons. I actually had a cartoonist block. The pictures didn’t come to me, but this morning I got a message and had to go to work.

The debate which is no longer a debate about building a wall has broken my block. I can’t stand it any longer Nancy has to be taken out via cartoons. Her Senate husband Chuckie Schumer is her sidekick. They are as easy a target as Obama and Hillary were.  The sad part of this plan is that Nancy and Chuck are too dense to understand how stupid they are. Stupid is as Communists Do. Their vision for America is to make it like Socialist.

There is an interesting rumor floating on the internet that past Mexican President Pena Nieto took a $100 million dollar bribe from a drug cartel. This part of the rumor is pretty solid, but attached to it is secondary rumor that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer also took bribes from the cartels and this is the reason for their obstinacy to deny money to build a wall. It makes some sense to me, but I am a sucker for a good conspiracy theory.

What ever Nancy and Chuck’s motives are they are dug in will not do what is right for the country. They are so self-centered that only their own personal lives are important to them. This attitude should be grounds for impeaching them.

The democrats are solidly pushing the use of technology to keep border jumping to a minimum. Since Nancy lives in the San Francisco area which is close to Silicone Valley it occurs to me that collusion may be in play. Democrats will call it lobbying. The only technology that I can think of that they would want get government funding for is Artificial Intelligence. Why spend stock holder money to test your latest toy when Uncle is salivating for a new hole into which he can pour money? Any combination of technology is easily beatable by people with an average brain and some common sense. Americans love technology as a way to solve every problem. We have the 911 system to save us from all kinds of harm. Having a heart attack?  Call 911, someone is breaking down you door and he has a gun, dial 911. When my wife had her heart attack, and I finally dialed 911 it took them five minutes to arrive at my door, and I lived four miles from the firehouse. When ICE gets a 911 call from a drone or a sensor in the desert, how long will the response time be? When you have a heart attack the responders can expect to find you at the address you give them. Will it be the same in the desert when the call comes in? Will the illegals stay put to wait for ICE to show up? Oh, but with artificial intelligence the system will find and track the culprits as they continue to their next rendezvous. This smacks of an “all-seeing, all-knowing” entity which Sister Flora  taught me is God. This fits right into the Democrat scheme to spend an infinite amount of money on a system that is infinite in scope. Maybe it is my naïvety but common sense tells me the wall is a better deal.

 

WOW! A New United States

WOW! Where do I begin? There are too many topics to discuss and I’m too old and tired to write about all of them. Before I go to the topic I selected let me just say I hope the kid who stood his ground against the crazy Indian beating his drum sues and breaks the backs of every one who falsely accused him of starting the mayhem. The fake news thing is getting way out of hand. As I’ve stated before this is a war and fake news is another weapon being used.

Now, for what I want to talk about. Democrats and never Trumpers played right into Trump’s hand with their reaction to his agreement to suspend negotiations until after the government reopens. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi reacted as expected, i.e. “he caved,” “I hope he has learned a lesson from this,” etc.

What I see is a President who is genuinely trying to solve a serious problem and is trying everything in his power to solve it. He tried to get the democrats to negotiate by shutting down the government. The Dem’s didn’t budge and he saw the hurt put on the precious government workers with all of their job perks and Cadillac insurance plans, and vacations were getting by missing a single paycheck. He changed his demand of money for a wall to trading a wall for DACA. Then he changed it to I’ll take a down payment for the wall and give you DACA. The Dem’s remained steadfast in their resolve to forbid him the wall. Nancy demanded that Dem’s would not come to the table unless the government re-opened. Okay, so let’s try that. We’ll see how it works out. My guess is that Trump will have to use another strategy to get the wall. What he wants is not selfish like the offer the Dem’s put forth, it is simply to do what his job description demands that he do, protect the country and the Constitution.

In the meantime, the Swamp organized a major bureaucracy to call in sick. The Air Controller Union mysteriously decided not to work for free, and three major airports stalled in traffic. Remember when President Reagan fired air-controllers for not doing their jobs? I do. The country survived. Trump’s mistake is in not playing hardball with those government workers who refuse to work. Controllers are not losing their pay, it is merely being delayed. My eyes are gushing alligator tears for these poor people and their union oligarchs. The country went through eight years of reduced air traffic during the great recession and not a single Controller lost his job as a result. I wish I could say the same about all of my friends who were laid off because their company sales dropped to half of what it was before Obama transformed us into greatly confused people.

Every democrat who is solidly against giving Trump his request to build a wall is on record as being in support of the wall. The wall is a way to control people flooding in at a rate we cannot absorb. President Obama’s solution was to load the flood on airplanes and fly them to undisclosed locations in the middle of the night. I am sure the immigration laws do not approve of secretly moving illegals into the country. Who cares about laws anyway? The only ones who care at this time are those who want to use laws to damage Trump. Does the word impeachment strike a bell?. Whenever a law puts a democrat in jeopardy, the law becomes invisible like the hypocrisy of the Department of Justice’s treatment of Hillary on her many violations. They won’t even listen to an argument, she is totally innocent of any wrong doing. The Justice Department is a huge sanctuary for democrat politicians.

Politicians are taking the wrong approach to solving this problem. One idea I have not heard discussed yet is this: Annex Mexico and the eight Central American countries as states in the USA. We need workers, and the people of these countries want to come here. Our companies wouldn’t have to negotiate complicated trade deals to get cheap labor, and politicians would be in heaven with all the new voters they could control. The border will be open and movement between the Americas would be totally unfettered. There would be fewer flags burned because they would be burning their own flag when doing so. We will build a short wall similar to the one in China between Panama, and Columbia at a cost much less than that of the wall between Mexico and the USA. Mexicans would be in heaven since they will in effect be regaining the land they lost during the Mexican-American war. Mexican drug cartels will be happy since their cost to market will be much less. The DEA will be elated at the prospect of taking on the Cartels with early morning raids in FBI style. Democrats will piss themselves with delight over inheriting so many more corrupt towns to control using the Richard J. Daley system of rule. (Actually, I think our upper 48 state democrats will learn some new tricks from their lower nine counterparts.

One problem I have with annexing this many new states is the design of our flag. How would we arrange the stars to expand the field to fifty-nine and still look good?

My conclusion is that the border wall will be completed and paid for by 2020, and the democrats will be taking full credit for it even though there won’t be a single vote from them to approve it. They will still be holding their breath and stomping their feet in anger hoping to stop Trump from doing what is right for America.
