Power Play

I am sick and tired of hearing the word impeach or impeachment. I also abhor the phrase “nobody is above the law.” If that is true Obama would be in jail for the rest of his life with his entire administration. Catch phrases like that are for the common man only. When it comes to applying nobody is above the law to politicians it has no meaning. Lies, liar, etc is another word when applied to a politician means nothing. Even when caught red handed in a lie the weasel gets out from under by saying I didn’t lie, I only mis-spoke.

Politics is another world folks. I will never run for any public office because I would be assassinated for my performance. The newest phrase which I believe to be relevant is Trump’s “drain the swamp.” Although I love the  inference of comparing political people to the weird creatures that reside in swamps, I defer because of the bad name it gives to all God’s creatures that thrive there. I am an environmentalist who happens to believe that all life is sacred including the creatures who depend on the swamp for survival. There has to be a more accurate way to define the low-life who works for the government and runs his own agenda without degrading nature’s creatures who do live there.

My dictionary defines impeach this way:

impeach | imˈpēCH |

verb [with object] call into question the integrity or validity of (a practice): there is no basis to Searle’s motion to impeach the verdict.

  1. British: charge with treason or another crime against the state.
  2. chiefly US charge (the holder of a public office) with misconduct: the governor served only one year before being impeached and convicted for fiscal fraud.

During the past week I spent considerable time watching the Congressional hearings on impeachment. I couldn’t believe these are the people who lead the greatest country in the world. It is my opinion that voters who put these morons in office are equally stupid. There is a saying that if you repeat a lie over and over often enough you will begin to believe th elie as the truth. That is exactly the strategy used in these hearings. The amount of repetition of their lies and moronic interpretations of President Trump’s actions were being fed to the populace as truth. Thank God, the population was not watching or listening. Only old guys like me listened to understand what the underlying reason was to carry on these hearings. The only thing they convinced me of is that I have been correct all along, i.e. democrats have a screw loose and they are incapable of understanding right from wrong and unable to change their minds.

I won’t waste my time any further with arguments against them because it is like talking to a stone wall.

The impeachment of Donald Trump is a power play by democrats to remove a duly elected president. Since they were unable to win an election they have to remove him by any other means available to them no matter how illegal, immoral, dishonest, or stupid it is. Trump’s election was an indictment of the Obama and his attempt to bring down the greatest country in the world. If Obama had run an honest campaign he would have lost in a landslide. Instead he kept his true motives concealed and continued to schmooze his lovers with thought provoking slogans like Change We Can Believe In, Hope, We Can Do Better.

Amen.

Is This the Future of America??

Think about this last one.

Trump Economy a Failure

I didn’t watch the democrat debate last night because I didn’t feel like getting sick. I saw enough on the news this morning to cause my gall bladder to kick out some serious bile. This bit featured several candidates proclaiming that the Trump economy is a failure because it only addresses the rich, poor people do not benefit.

Let me see now, as I read this they mean that the lowly people don’t get to make the same as the rich. I kind of remember that in a socialist society like the USSR, Cuba and Venezuela the lowly people all make the same as the rich right? That logic fails me. I keep hearing that the Cubans are all poor, but the rich are still rich, except there may be fewer rich people in Cuba. Why? Because the only rich people are the ones running the country, same in Venezuela. At least in the Trump economy there are more rich people because they are all working their asses off to make it. While all of the lowly poor people now have jobs and they are richer than they were under our former leader’s economy when everyone was on food stamps.

There must be a DNA link in me that keeps my feeble brain thinking that the socialist way is evil for the world. There must also be a DNA link in the socialists that cause them to believe that evil is good. Why else would so many of them preach the same wretched doctrine?

I read an article about the new homeless people in all the major cities of the USA. Many of them don’t want to live the idyllic life we normal people live. They actually want to live homeless because it gives them a degree of freedom and liberty not available to those of us who believe in sleeping in a bed. My mind immediately flashed a picture of settlers living in the old west, and homesteaders living in Alaska’s most remote areas. They love living free. A modern day homeless homesteader likes the urban environment over the natures wild best. It is easier to bum a meal on the streets when you get hungry than it is to go catch a fish, or to shoot a squirrel then have to clean it to eat it.

So here we are living in a society that is split into many factions. The socialist side wants to mind control, care for, and provide equal misery for everybody while the capitalist side wants total freedom to allow people to make money and care for themselves. No matter which faction you belong to there will be a fraction of them who are filthy rich who will lord over all the others.

However, I have never heard a socialist ever admit that the ruling class lives a better life than those whose lives he is making better. They are all kind of like Bernie Sanders who drives a posh car, has several homes, and lives rich while preaching free stuff for everyone.

Lately, I have been reading stories from countries who have adopted democratic socialism that are not sounding so beautiful. Evidently a seventy percent taxation is getting these people down, especially after taking in so many refugees and immigrants.

All I can say is that my kids and grandkids will have to deal with it. My sorry ass isn’t going to be around too much longer and I am tough enough to live through most any kind of political culture we impose upon ourselves. I am glad however, that I chose to live conservatively because that is why I can afford to do the things I do today.

190626-Political Rant

 

I have to get this off my chest. For what ever reason I watched a round table discussion with Democrat Presidential Candidate Julian Castro.

Mr. Castro got my ire up but good. I truly believe he is the son or bastard of one Fidel Castro, and is determined to make this country as communist as Cuba. Julian was hired by Obama to serve as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Somehow I don’t remember him for anything outstanding. Now that I’ve listened to his political campaign bullshit I know why. This guy isn’t capable of finding his way out of a paper bag open at the end. He answered each question with an annoying “thank you for your question,” and then proceeded to demean President Trump without ever addressing the question. His biggest mistake was in describing conditions at the border and the handling of children as unacceptable. Well, Julian, President Trump is following the policy laid out by your former boss, and upheld by all your progressive judges..

Any one who is interested in voting for this man as our next leader should do the following: put a gun to your head and pull the trigger. The result will be much better than that of having this clown as our leader.

Cross At Your Own Risk

Illinois is a great state to live in if you are socialist. We put California and New York to shame when it comes to one party politics, graft, and families who make politics a business. Our last election put a democrat governor back in the statehouse and our legislature can’t increase taxes fast enough. The increases are not going to fix real problems but to fuel unmet pension obligations for public sector workers. By law the pensions are funded every year, but our politicians have seen fit to use the money elsewhere. The funds are in dire straits. My town is loaded with retired teachers and supervisors. All I can say is what I observe. These people live a whole lot better on a pension than they did working.

Meanwhile we have some very serious infrastructure problems which are going unaddressed. One in particular is the Inter-state 80 bridge over the DesPlaines river in Joliet. Here is how the Illinois politicians have addressed the problem.

https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/392512332-video

By the  time you see this sign it is too late to exit I80. To convince myself of the seriousness I tested the bridge last Saturday afternoon by driving over it. The structure seems to be sound, but the road surface is a total mess. I found my self in the center lane of the three lane road. I could not change lanes because I was in a sea of trucks in front, back, and on the side. I slowed down to make myself feel like that was the correct thing to do. At the very center of the crossing the road surface dips a full four inches over a twelve foot span. On land this would not concern me, but while crossing a river a hundred feet in the air it scared the crap out of me. On land when a road dips it is because the roadbed has compacted but on a bridge there is no dirt below the road surface, only air. This is a terrible accident waiting to happen at any moment.

Why is IDOT waiting to repair the problem? Good question with many answers none of which will hold water after the section of road decides to take a swim. On my return trip I exited the interstate one mile before the bridge and took the city streets. I’m lucky I know the area well enough to be able to do that. What if you are a vacationer from another state passing through. You will ignore the sign even if you do see it, and proceed.

Anyway, when the event finally happens Illinois will be on the map right up there with California and New York. The world will see the news broadcasts of our finest politicians passing the buck and blaming the republicans. Oh wait, they can’t do that there are no republicans.

Why is this bridge crumbling? It is a long story. Once upon a time there was a Congressman from Frankfort whose name was George Sangemeister. There was also a giant parcel of US Government land know as the Joliet Arsenal. George wanted to leave a legacy so he legislated that the land should go back to the people. The arsenal was no longer being used to make bullets, bombs, and torpedos, and is made good sense. George’s plan split the land into three parcels. The first parcel created the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for veterans. The second parcel created Midewin National Tall Grass Prairie. The final parcel was designated for business. I’m sure George made some side money on that one. The business that settled there is a giant terminal for transporting goods coming from China. This is the culprit. There are thousands of trucks coming into and out of the terminal. Container trains come in from the east and the west they get unloaded and then trucked to our local Dollar General stores with all the crap the Chinese send us. We get cheap goods to fill our garages and basements with and the states get a bill to rebuild highways, and  bridges. Now how cheap is that? What we don’t pay for in goods we wind up paying for infrastructure.

Lest We Forget

All I hear these days is how we must impeach President Trump for the very act of defending himself against attempts to bring him down. They call it obstruction of justice. I call it defending yourself from the savages. If anybody deserved impeachment it was President Obama. In order to make my case I submit the following list of Obama’s accomplishments. I remind you that these accomplishments are the basis of many Left Wing Americans citing “that’s not who we are” as a nation when arguing about President Trump’s actions.  If we want to be known as a lying, cheating, Constitutional trashing Nation, then we hold Obama’s accomplishments dear.

Here’s a list of President Obama’s accomplishments:

with criminal convictions.

15. First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.

16. First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

17. First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law (Defense of Marriage Act) unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it. (Impeachable)

18. First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases.
