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.

Asparagus and Uranium


The sign of a great writer is the ability to create interesting and real characters, and to place them into interesting situations. I just completed reading a book titled The Accidental Further Adventures of the 100 Year Old Man. Writer Jonas Jonasson lives in Sweden and crafted a superb story around two elements; asparagus and uranium. He included world leaders like Trump, Merkel, Putin, Rocket-man Kim Jong un, and others to embellish the story. In my opinion he lost points by making Trump a doofus. Other than that bit of bias I enjoyed the story because it was intriguing and funny. The idea of a one hundred year old man going on adventures drew me in.

So how were asparagus and uranium involved? A side kick of the hundred year old man grew and sold asparagus and the two of them happened upon a suitcase filled with nine pounds of enriched uranium headed for North Korea. Jonasson wove a complicated tale and made it all come together in the end.

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.

 

Twelve More Years To Go

The freshman darling of the Democrat party Alexandria Ocasio Cortez predicted this week that the world has twelve years left before man-made global warming brings it to an end. To keep this event from happening she wants us to pay seventy percent income tax.

I say that to hell with paying seventy-percent income tax to prevent the event. I say apply it to a world-wide party celebrating like crazy before we all meet our end.

Paying seventy-percent income tax would bring our world to an end as we know it. Certainly we would become another socialist success story like Venezuela, and if that happens we might as well have Antarctica melt and flood the world. Didn’t Noah build an ark to save the world from a great flood. Didn’t he have to load the ark with two of every species of living thing so when the floods receded the world could again begin anew?

I read recently that the arc was found on top of a mountain in the mid-east. If we suffer a massive ice melt like Antarctica the oceans around the world would rise several feet. If the story about the ark is true and it was found atop a mountain, it says the world survived a greater flood than that which will come from Antarctica melting.

Scientifically, I think melting Antarctica will take something more dramatic than an immeasurable rise in temperature from high CO2 in the atmosphere. I think it would take an angular shift of the earth’s axis of about fifteen to thirty degrees to put Antarctica directly into the sun’s rays. If that shift were to happen it won’t matter how much tax the socialists want to charge the world will be very different, and North America will have very long winters and the Arctic ice mass will become huge. Canada and the northern half of the USA will have winters with twenty hours of darkness and four hours of low-level light a day. Argentina will become the new winter playground of the world.

All of this calamity would happen but the man-made CO2 problem will be the same.

Alexandria baby, I’m drinking one to ya tonight! I love a good party.

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.

Democrats = Liberalism = Progressivism = Democratic Socialism = Communism = Equal Misery for All

Truly At War

A few weeks ago I posted a piece about how the united States is in a civil war. Today, I heard another reason to support the premise. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has denied President Trump the use of the Congressional Chamber for the yearly State of the Union Address. She is playing poker with the president to see who folds first on the government shutdown matter. I read another news bit that Congressperson Nancy has also stated she has the same power as that of the President. Since the Legislative branch has equal power along with the Judicial and Executive branches. As Speaker she is third in line to get the presidency if both the president and vice president are unable to fulfill the job. She salivates over the prospect. Nancy you are not presidential material.

What I see in all of this is a flat-out refusal by Congress to legislate that which is good for the country. Nancy and Senator Schumer have both publicly stated in the past that we need border control and immigration reform. Yet, they refuse to work on a deal with the president to give him the money needed to build a wall as part of border control. This smacks of treason in my mind. They are refusing to do what they have sworn to do, that is, to protect the country over their party’s power. What I see here is a coup where the Democrat Congress is trying to usurp the President’s authority. Add this to the previous argument about the democrats refusing to recognize the elected leaders, and the war escalates. At some point bullets will begin to fly.

My Heart Cries Out

A government shut-down usually means people don’t get paid. The modern shutdown engineered by Congress insures that the Administration, Congress, the Supreme Court and most of the bureaucracies get paid. Congress wrote all of that into law, and you better believe that is one law they enforce. There is a small part of people whom they have defined as being non-essential, like museum curators, National Park workers and the like. These are the people who will get their pay delayed.I feel for these people whose lives suddenly take a turn for the worse. I cannot imagine what I would do if my income stopped.

The press and all the Democrats and too many Republicans are also beginning to support the delay negotiations for border security until the government reopens. A very sad affair.

Where were these people in 2008 when the economy tanked and millions of people found themselves without a pay check?  Somehow they learned to survive with help from the government. A lot of people lost their homes, cars, and some families broke up. Life was tough. The situation lasted up until Trump became president and jump-started the economy to the point where people again have jobs. People suffered for eight years. During this time those who are classified as non-essential received a paycheck. It didn’t matter that millions of people didn’t have the money to visit the museums, and the National Parks they kept getting paid. I never heard of anyone who lost a job tell me that as soon as business picked up they would get back pay. I didn’t hear that because that never happens when companies lay you off or go out of business.

With the economy booming and jobs being plentiful I am certain these non-essential people can get temporary employment to survive until Trump and Congress solves the border crisis. Certainly it won’t take eight years like the recession did, but it can last up to two years.

I whole heartedly support President Trumps tactic to keep the shut-down going until Congress agrees to negotiate.

I remember when President Reagan ran into a similar situation during his term. The Democrats got to him and promised him everything he wanted in the way of immigration reform as soon as the shut down ended. He took the bait and guess what? Congress shoved the promise right up his presidential ass. They did succeed in screwing up the laws so we have the current situation. It has to change and it won’t until both sides agree to talk. President Trump has repeatedly brought the leaders to the table attempting to resolve the problem. Each time the Senate and Congress brought the talks into stalemate.

If I were a non-essential government worker I’d be entering my résumé data online to find some job opportunities. Congress hasn’t been able to do jack-shit since 2008, and they have forgotten the meaning of the word work. They are a bunch of non-effective non-essential workers who get paid much too much for nothing.
