I Feel Better Now

A few days ago I watched the State of the Union Message by President Donald Trump. Unlike the previous eight SU’s that I watched I wasn’t nauseated this time, except for one thing. I never realized there was a huge handicapped seating section in the Senate chamber. All the Democrats who wore themselves out jumping, clapping and cheering for Mr. Smooth over the past eight years seemed to have suddenly become paralyzed. Even I had some positive thoughts about some of Smoothy’s ideas, but when he spoke about being able to keep my doctor, or give me a trillion dollars for some shovel ready jobs my positivism disappeared  (later Obama admitted that there were no Shovel Ready jobs). Right now all the paralyzed democrats are railing against infra-structure projects because they don’t see where the money is going to come from. I say to them, “dig deep into your coffers and pull out the trillion that Smoothy talked you out of for the shovel ready infra-structure. Oh, he squandered it? Then why would you be so worried about where it will come from now?

President Trump’s speech was a model of positive thinking. He really never mentioned anything negative, but did keep repeating over and over that in this new economic climate if you can’t make it, you are not trying. I don’t remember exactly but it might have been at the point when Trump said that we are a nation that respects our flag, when Luis Gutierrez Democrat Congressman from Chicago jumped out of his seat and ran out of the room to keep from shitting his pants. You see, Luis and his people will have to work again. Oh, you say his people are our people? Not according to Luis his people are special and deserve the best treatment at the cost to the rest of us, and he has dedicated his life to protect them. He doesn’t care if his people don’t assimilate into American Society. All he wants is his cut from which he will throw his people a bone now and then.

I particularly liked the way Trump worked all types of citizens into his speech to make some serious points. Like the kid who didn’t like that there were no flags on Veteran graves on flag day so he started a movement to buy flags and to place them on the graves. I say, that at age 13 or 14 he did a great job. Or how about the cop with four or five kids of his own who adopted the baby of a seriously heroin addicted mother so she could die knowing her child would be taken care of. Now that takes a positive thinker and someone with courage. Or the big guy who lost his job and took advantage of jobs training to become a welder. (He is the only one I ever heard of that ever came out of government job training class and got a job). In each case Trump made a positive point using the personal stories of his guests.

The sad part about all of this is the democrats kept sitting on their fat asses throughout. The camera caught Nancy Pelosi, with a face that could stop a clock, repeatedly swishing her tongue over her teeth to clear the bits of the great meal she inhaled before the speech.

Over-all I thought the President’s speech was a tad bit too long, but I sat through it gladly knowing that all the democrats fumed throughout.

Each time I heard Trump speak of unity and coöperation and doing what is best for the country, all I could think of is that eliminating democrats just as we are eliminating ISIS is what is best for the country. In my lifetime, I knew of politicians both democrat and republican who could do exactly what we long for today. They could argue their points against each other, yet still reach a united compromise that was good for the country. Two names in Particular were the Senators from Illinois, Paul Douglas a democrat, and Everett Dirksen a republican.

Those were the days. . .

Senator Everett Dirksen, R-Illinois

Senator Paul Douglas, D-Illinois

The only time I ever see my Senator on the news is when he is running for re-election. Senator Tricky Dicky Durbin is usually missing in action until it is time to turn on campaign mode. This time it started when President Trump seated Tricky next to him in the highly visible immigration meeting. Then, the next day Tricky made headlines by accusing Trump of saying why do we want to keep bringing people into this country from shithole countries. Every liberal journalist is now spreading the horror of the words shithole, while the rest of us nod our heads in assent saying “yes why would we?”

What Tricky Dicky does not recognize is that he is responsible for making his home state the shithole of the fifty. We rank second only to San Francisco. Illinois is a blue state, a very, very deep blue state. Even the Republicans on our ballots are RINO’s. One of Tricky’s buddies is a State representative named Mike Madigan. Madigan has been Speaker of the House for more than thirty years.  Four years ago we elected Bruce Rauner a conservative governor and Madigan and the majority democrats have stalled and denied any cooperation. Does that sound familiar? Illinois has operated on continuing resolutions instead of a budget for the past four years even though it is against the law to run that way. The governor refuses to sign a budget that does not include some modicum of pension reforms for pensions. We the people of Illinois pay heavy taxes to fund public sector union pension funds. Unions vote democrat, and there in lies our problem. Which unions are responsible: State workers, Chicago Teachers Union, Police Union, Fire Fighters Union. They all know how to play the media and the politicians at contract time. Absolutely no one wants to fight these unions for reform. Instead of reforming, the unions get raises and more perks.

What does this have to do with Tricky? He is as invisible as the comic character The Invisible Man. Never have I heard him comment positively about reform in his home state. I don’t expect Tricky to waver on any subject close to a leftist’s heart like unlimited immigration, wide open borders, election control, you name it Tricky is all for it and brands anyone who opposes his agenda as racist, da-da-da-da da. His agenda is to make the USA look like Chicago and Illinois. He is blind to the fact that small businesses are flocking to neighboring states for relief. Citizens are moving in droves to states with low income-taxes, property taxes, and low cost state schools. Yes, a vote for Tricky is a vote to turn Illinois, and the USA into a Socialist State.

Kneelers vs Hand Over Heart

61AgRLArSjL.jpg

Last night in a dream I saw a special football game played. One team wore red and the other blue uniforms. The uniforms were not what made this game special, it was the make up of the teams. The players on the red team were all patriots who loved standing with  a hand over their heart and to sing the National Anthem before the game. The Blue team was comprised of the kneelers. Both teams played their hearts out, and I woke up before anyone scored, so I can’t tell who won.

The concept of a two team playoff where the teams are from totally succinct players would be an excellent way to ease the tension of the country. It would be like having war on the football field. I’m not sure the winner would be satisfied with the end. For instance, would the kneelers really give up protesting what they believe to be a huge problem in America, i.e. that the police across the country shoot blacks without cause? Would we as fans be satisfied that the issue has been resolved? Probably not. My conclusion is that this kind of competition will never happen, nor will it save anything, but it may be entertaining.

Buying Nonsense, NOT

Progressives are a bunch of wimpy cry babies. They have too many things on their plate to make them a sad lot. Watch this video by George Will who explains their problems, then read the essay below on sports names. You will get the idea of what Progressives really are. If you proclaim to be one take note we aren’t buying your nonsense.

 

 

OK, Sports fans, here is an interesting take on Sport Team Names:

  No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this is funny. This guy is hilarious! Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins. He is right on…
Dear Mr. Page…
  I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend and, in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.
Let’s ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60s alive. Gone. It’s offensive to us white folk
The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men’s lives.
I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.
Then there are the team names that glorify criminals  who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!
Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The LA Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.
The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.
The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.
The Milwaukee Brewers. Well, that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.
So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the Government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do nothing Congress loves.
As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women’s athletic teams to something other than the ‘Beavers’ (especially when they play Southern California . Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers???)
I always love your articles and I generally agree with them.
As for the Redskins name, I would suggest they change the name to the Foreskins to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Congress.

Changing the World

41lm8i4I1gL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

My latest book find from the library started out sounding like a drag. Most books on Political Science seem to be somewhat un-entertaining. Nevertheless I read them to learn. Jonathan Tepperman wrote this book and titled it The Fix, How Nations Survive and Thrive in a World of Decline. Right there the title caught my attention because I don’t believe the world is in decline at all. It is evolving onto a new era, but it is not in decline. In fact, I believe that to be stupid. As bad as the USA is at this moment in history it is no worse than previous generations. Yes, the USA is going through growing pains, but it is not in decline. We just have to catch up with the technology and information age. The last time the country changed phases was the change from an agricultural economy to the industrial one. That wasn’t easy either. The difference is we also experienced an amazing generation of people who were inventors and dreamers who fueled the change like Edison, Ford, Firestone, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, JP Morgan, and Rockefeller to name a few. Our current generation has a new group of these people namely, Jobs, Gates, Bezos, Adelson, Ma, Brin, Zuckerberg, Ellison, Musk, and many more. The difference is that these companies don’t employ as many people as the companies of the Industrial Revolution, and the country has a much bigger population to employ.  These companies are steeped in technology to be more efficient, or if they rely on manual labor they have moved manufacturing to the third world. The efficiencies require less manual labor, and our workforce has not caught up to this level of technology. How often have we heard that the USA worker does not want the types of jobs we have to offer them. Most of us think about labor to pick tomatoes or green beans, but many of the jobs we really have to fill require knowledge beyond high school and sometimes even a Bachelor’s degree. We don’t have enough picker jobs, and factory jobs to fill the huge number of low skill migrants that arrive daily. The real emphasis on immigration lies in getting educated migrants.

In the introduction to this book, Tepperman lists ten trouble areas causing the world to wane: 1. Inequality, 2. Immigration, 3. Islamic Extremism, 4. Civil War, 5. Corruption, 6. The Resource Curse, 7. Energy, 8. The Middle Income Trap, 9. Gridlock I, 10. Gridlock II.

For the most part I agree all ten of these points are trouble. I disagree in correcting inequality because no matter how much advancement we make there will always be a separation between those that have some, and those that have a lot more, it is all relative. I do agree that people who live on less than $2 per day are too far away from the one percent, and they can be raised to a level of decent living.

Tepperman then begins his work in earnest and convincingly chronicles how a number of places have raised themselves from virtual ground zero to healthy, growing economies, like Brazil, Canada, South Korea, Indonesia, Rwanda, Singapore, Botswana, Mexico, New York City, and the USA. In each of these places the problems encountered seemed insurmountable: corruption, lack of resources, lack of leadership, etc. What Tepperman realized as he researched is that in each instance a leader emerged who had a different approach to government. These people, men and women both, fell outside the mainstream political parties and used techniques and ideas totally unorthodox to conventional governmental systems. All through the narrative I kept getting visions of President Donald Trump. He too is in a difficult situation. The USA has become stagnant and no longer is able to resolve its problems with a corrupt (swamp) leadership and bureaucracy. Both political parties work against him because they believe he is not of the system. In each of the narrative situations Tepperman cites leaders who were faced with even larger swamps, and more massive corruption. Yet these individuals were able to lead their countries out of the quagmire and into the limelight.

By the end of the read, I was totally engrossed, in the micro history of these countries during periods of problem solving. I also developed a new respect for these countries and their developments.

If you enjoy Political Science this is an excellent book to read: five stars.

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
