Not My Bag Of Tea

The peaceful protests across our country are telling us one thing; there are a lot if sick bad ass people living here. Why they are so mentally sick is not clear. Maybe they think they are being patriotic and the only way to cure the country is to tear it apart. My question is what the heck are they trying to cure? I have often played a scenario in my mind about the next revolution against the government. In my scenario we are always trying to keep our freedoms. In today’s rioting the protestors are trying to establish the opposite of freedom. They want to control every aspect of our lives and they won’t stop until they have succeeded. They must know that their ideology of socialism, progressivism, communism will never work and it has been proven not to work too many times.

If I were leading any aspect of the government I would need to be restrained from blowing these protesters to hell. I give some of these mayors, governors, and the President credit for being patient to allow the protests to play out, but will they play out? Eventually, when all businesses, government buildings and monuments have been destroyed, and they have nothing else to apply their anger towards they will have to end. Otherwise they will begin to hurt themselves.

I see the news casts daily and they exploit the fires and the broken windows with people running in and out of stores; their arms loaded with booty. Add this to the damage we must live through caused by the COVID-19 nonsense and America has met a new type of terrorism perhaps worse than any Muslim form we’ve seen on our shores. At least when we see the Muslims as the enemy we are not afraid to blow them away. With these new terrorists we see them as peaceful protestors, and we must protect their Constitutional rights. I say to hell with them and fight fire with fire. See, that is why I am never going to be in charge.

The one positive thing I see in these nightly car burnings is that they are making Ford, and GMC very happy. All those burned cars will be replaced.

Insurance companies will take it on the chin at all the stores because I’m sure that every business has insurance against these types of events. Of course the insurers will opt not to cover any new events in the future. The entire damage will be owned by the businesses. I wonder how many will decide not to reopen. Will the protesters consider that a victory? All it will do is force them to move to another neighborhood where there is still some business going on.

My recommendation is to let the National Guard loose in these communities and let the bodies pile up. I don’t think they will use rubber bullets like the police do. Let the mainstream media show me dead bodies stacked at riot sites and I predict the rioting will stop, and the people living there will be applauding the mayhem.

Tens Seconds to Puke

Last night I watched ten seconds of the Democratic National Convention. I never thought I would live to see the day that a professed communist addresses the nation on live tv on a daily basis. Read the history of Bernie Sanders and tell me if I am wrong. This guy has a screw loose if he really believe that Socialism = Communism is right for the world. The only people who love Communism are the leaders who are in charge. They love tending slaves which is what all the other people in the population are, and they are the slave masters wielding the bull whip to keep us in order.

I would really like to see what our country would be like if all the news media was totally unbiased and not leading the charge toward socialism. Maybe, just maybe we would be more civilized and orderly.

The First Amendment right to free speech puts the media at an advantage when it comes to spreading harm. They are allowed to write things that are totally wrong and hurtful without any consequence. The more sensational their message the more money they make. When it comes to making money the socialist news-media becomes capitalist, and hides behind the First Amendment.

And that is all I want to say on that.

Exactly My Sentiments

The very first eMail I opened this morning was a piece which I am posting below. The man who wrote this is a few years younger than me but he represents the thinking of millions of Americans. BLM is a communist front designed to take down our country. Those responsible for inventing BLM-Black Lives Matter are Obama and Soros. Neither of whom is a true American. Most blacks in the country shy away from them because they represent something black Americans are not.

Things I Don’t Understand

by Joseph M. Valenzano

June 24, 2020.

1. Rioters and protesters tore down the monuments to Francis Scott Key, author of the Star-Spangled Banner, our National Anthem, and the statue of Father Junipero Serra, founder of the Spanish Missions in California. The monument to Christopher Columbus in NYC was defaced as was St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The New York Museum of Natural History just decided to remove the statue of Teddy Roosevelt, which has stood at the entrance of the museum since 1940.  It seems that young revolutionaries want to rewrite our history, but how is that possible? You cannot erase history; you can only learn from it. George Santayana once wrote, “those who ignore the lessons of history are condemned to repeat it.” So, I am wondering, if we consciously try to erase history and rewrite it as we believe it should have been, how will we ever learn of the mistakes we made in the past so that they will not be made again? But here’s a thought: Why not get back to teaching history instead of advocacy in schools?

 2. So, if a police officer shoots a criminal after being assaulted by that criminal, it is the cop’s fault, but if a criminal shoots someone, it’s the gun’s fault? Help me understand that, please.

  3. I have lived in America for all my 75 years. I am probably old-fashioned, but it has been my experience that police typically leave you alone if you are not doing illegal stuff. So here is another thought: How about teaching our kids to be responsible for their actions and respect police, adults, and senior citizens? This is a process that begins in the home.

 4. Does Black Lives Matter (BLM) include aborted black babies, murdered black police officers, black on black killings, or does BLM respond only when a white police officer kills a black man or woman?

 5. So, now the classic movie Gone with the Wind has been removed, and high school students no longer are asked to read the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain or To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.. They are banished from school curricula. That is sad and a significant loss from an educational perspective. Does anyone remember Hattie McDaniel? She was the first black American actress to win an Oscar for her performance in – wait for it – Gone with the Wind. Is her name and performance now cast aside and gone forever because of the new revolutionaries telling us what we can and cannot read or see?

 6. Rest in Peace Aunt Jemimah (1893-2020) and Uncle Ben (1943-2020). Cause of death: Liberal Stupidity. Whatever happened to Common Sense?

 7. Why would President Barack Hussein Obama have a Presidential Library? What the hell would it contain?

 8. In the last four years, can you name any piece of legislation, any program that benefited America and Americans coming from the Democrats? What exactly have they done over the last four years? Come to think of it, Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for President and former VP under Barack Hussein Obama, is an enigma. He has been in government 51 years! What exactly has he done for America and Americans in all those years? What is his platform?

9. The Prophet Mohammed was a pedophile, murderer, and slave trader. Why are there no riots to burn down mosques? How about the Pyramids of Egypt? Slaves built them. Why are there no riots and efforts to destroy these? Ditto for The Great Wall of China.

 10. Maybe its just me, but if I have a problem with my faucets, drains, or showers, I call a plumber to help. If I have a question about taxes, I call my accountant. If I have a fever or upset stomach, I call my doctor. But if I want advice on politics or economics or international relations, I would not be inclined to call Lebron James or any other athlete. How about you?

 11. I read where Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was laughing, and high-fiving people for scamming the Trump Rally in Oklahoma and having teens and others register for advance tickets to it and not show up. Fascinating! But here’s a question: If these liberal democrats can do this, what will they do with mail-in voting? 

12. I find it ironic and a bit humorous that the very first thing the insurrectionist wanna-be tough guys who took over a six square block segment of Seattle did was – wait for it – build a wall! Why did they do that? (Don’t answer, I think I figured it out) 

13. I read earlier today that rioters in California tore down the statue of Ulysses S. Grant, former President and General, who defeated the Confederacy and wreaked havoc on the KKK in South Carolina. He was vehemently opposed to slavery.  Wonder what he did so wrong as to elicit the ire of the mob? Could it be that the mob was not so concerned about Blacks but more concerned about simply tearing down everything to do with America?  Makes you really wonder about just what BLM and Antifa stand for, doesn’t it? And who the hell oversees these well-orchestrated riots? You see, a mob has a leader, so who is the leader? George Soros? Barack Hussein Obama and OFA? Someone is calling the shots to undermine our way of life. I’d really like to know. Wouldn’t you?  

14. Sometimes I find myself wondering why we are so obsessed with trying to find intelligent life on other planets when we can’t seem to find intelligent life right here on Mother Earth?  

15. Someone needs to explain to me why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports 57,000 COVID-19 deaths, and the media reports over 120,000 deaths. Why the disparity? Equally, I would like to know the distinction between those who died from COVID-19 and those who died with COVID-19. Am I just not smart enough to understand these things? But here is what I do understand and for which I need no explanation: Americans live in the greatest country on planet earth, and I have been all over this world so I can make that statement. We the People have the most excellent medical care in the world.We the People earned more Nobel Prizes than any nation earth by a factor of ten. We the People have pioneered the exploration of space and are innovators in technology. We the People have accumulated more wealth and prosperity than any other country on the globe and have the highest standard of living known to man. We the People have abolished slavery, prevailed in two World Wars, and saved Europe twice in the 20th century. Instead of reaping the spoils of war, we invested in rebuilding Europe and Japan in the aftermath of the devastation of WWII. And we did all of this in 244 years as compared to other nations whose histories go back millennia! America is a free country and, if you don’t like it here, you don’t need to destroy other people’s property and businesses to satisfy your primal, uncontrolled emotions, nor do you have to tear down our historical monuments. You can pack up and leave. I’m just guessing about this, but I bet if I looked carefully, I would not see any anchors on your ass keeping you here.

 In a few days, we will be celebrating Independence Day, the Birthday of our Nation. It is a golden opportunity to put aside personal differences and salute the fact that we all wake up every day as free men and women thanks to those who paid the ultimate price for that privilege. Happy Birthday, America!

Win At All Costs

Have you ever hired a lawyer to represent you with the idea that you will lose? If you have you are not normal. We hire lawyers to win. We want to stay out of jail, we want to get the judgement in our favor, but we never hire him to lose. Yet, half of all people who hire lawyers lose, and the other half wins. Very seldom is there a compromise settlement. Settlements appear when a lawyer who is clearly losing his case argues for a compromise which in his mind is a win for you, as in ten years in jail versus life in prison.

Lawyers are trained to win. They learn to debate whether their client is on the wrong side or not. They argue in your behalf even when they know you are guilty as sin. Even though we know this we continue to hire lawyers to represent us in government. Hiring of course is our vote. We argue that lawyers know the law therefore they must be in charge of writing new ones and upholding the existing ones. We also know that there is always the conflict between good and evil, black and white, north vs south. From the very beginning our government has evolved into two factions based on political ideology, liberal, and conservative. Most of the people who wrote our constitution and the Declaration of Independence were trained in law.

Note: The shape of Illinois is Wisconsin.

In the beginning of our country, before we were a nation we were ruled by a single person called king. It was his way or the highway. Needless to say that many of the people who lived in North America at the time of our revolution still pledged allegiance to the king and probably continued that allegiance after the separation from England.

I am not knowledgeable in history well enough to say for certain that some of our new members of congress may have still carried some allegiance to the king. For the sake of argument I venture to guess that some did. What these people did was to poison the congress with opposing ideas and attitudes. The result was an evolution towards the two ideologies which dominate out political system to this day. We have settled on two ideologies one liberal (Democrat) and one conservative (Republican). As I stated above they were trained in law, and in debate and in winning.

In the beginning there was more legitimate compromise between groups. Our system seemed to be working, but somewhere along the way (About early 1900) a new faction began introducing radical ideas. The faction was a split from the democrats and proposed ideas and laws that imposed far more conflict than the normal average democrats. They liked to call themselves progressives.

At about the same time that Woodrow Wilson was promoting progressivism in America Carl Marx was pushing communism in Europe. Marx had a student named Lenin, and these two were not content to allow their ideas to evolve slowly into the hearts and minds of the people. Instead they introduced them with revolution, convert or die. We in America had a hint of what was coming with the progressive movement, but we didn’t believe in introducing it aggressively with revolution. We were content to allow the communists in America to promote their foul ideas under their First Amendment rights to free speech. Gradually, these communist voices grew and infiltrated organizations throughout America. Most notably they overtook our institutions of learning. With young minds within their command they have been able to poison the minds of our youth with ideas of revolution and communism.

Most of these revolutionaries are democrat and they have begun spreading their leftist ideas into government. Combine the concept of electing lawyers as our Representatives and Senators along with their leftist mindset received from college we have a system that is causing internal conflict and rioting in the streets all in the name of destroying America.

Add into this mix a group of very, very rich people like George Soros, and liberal think tanks who fund hundreds of very democratic sounding organizations that are in the business of fomenting radical change. Black Lives Matter, and ANTIFA are two that come to mind. These groups are basically communist in their ideology, but have been named to sound like something else. For instance Black Lives Matter does not do anything to effect change in the black neighborhoods where hundreds of black people are being shot and killed weekly by other black people. Why do they instead concentrate on blacks who have been killed by white police? Because it makes for better TV and that spreads the message of their revolution faster and further than saving black lives in the black community.

The newest movement is the one to defund police departments. This one is so crazy radical that it is hard to believe these people have brains. Yet, there is at least one city where they have begun to dismantle the police department to make them into something more “touchy-feely and please don’t steal, riot, or kill people it is not nice” kind of force. While the criminal will continue to use weapons without flinching, cause blood to flow, and the new cops will have to hold the perp by the hand until a highly paid psychologist arrives on the scene to talk the criminal down.

In conclusion, all I want to point out is that the reason we have all of these problems in America today is because we elect too many lawyers into office. They don’t know how to lose or to compromise a real solution that makes both sides happy. They are trained to WIN not to SOLVE problems.

A Dream Come True?

Iron Curtain

Socialism seems to be the fashion statement of the U.S.A. Movie stars, comedians, politicians, and many of our brightest young people all proclaim the wonders of socialism. Why? This question has bothered me for some time. I think I have an idea of why socialism is so glamorous to these people. They see everyone living with all the same perks they have today. Imagine if our progeny who live in good homes and who raise their kids wanting for nothing, while living on their parents for too many years suddenly faced with the prospect of having to survive.  Socialism in their minds is living with mom and dad for the rest of their lives. The movie actors who make a bazillion dollars all imagine socialism as living on a bazillion dollars. Politicians, all see themselves sitting in marble walled offices and dining in elegant cafeterias while they lord it over the rest of us. Comedians, well comedians will be comedians and make people laugh while they smoke marijuana to dream up all the funny shit they spew. What a world they see when everyone is living the dream they live today. Everything is free, college, health care, food, places to live, transportation, sex. Wow what a world!

Imagine our entire country living this way. All of us. Hell all we would have to do is take all the money from the rich to finance the life. No one would pay taxes except those radical conservatives who insist on still working, and they would pay it all. The rest of the country will work at boring government jobs pulling down equal pay. Every company in the country would become nationalized so not one could make obscene  profits. We would be the envy of the world. Except, except how long will this utopian dream last? Eventually, and eventually will happen quickly, the government will run out of money to pay for the free stuff, and the honeymoon period will come to an end. What then?

My guess is that the millennials who lead the socialistic charge today would suddenly become black market entrepreneurs. Bit-coin would become the national underground currency for the people who live the socialist dream, but who secretly practice a capitalistic life style.

History means nothing to these people. The past failures of socialism mean nothing. They deflect and say “look at Sweden.”  I look at Sweden, and I don’t like what I see. This happy people pay over seventy percent of their meager salaries for all that free stuff. The Swedes made free look so good that a million refugees invaded from places that love free, but who don’t understand what civilized life is. Now the Swedes are crying that they didn’t know. Germany, the same, France, well France is France. They have always been considered the mavericks of Europe. The French own parts of  Africa that are muslim. These people have French and Moroccan passports and can freely move between continents. France is a mainline highway for muslims to get into Europe. Oops, I’m showing my Islamophobia again. Sorry for that, but facts are facts.

Wouldn’t it be nice is we could run an experiment in the U.S.A. where we set aside an area of 25 states and make it the United Socialist America.  Anyone who wants to be a socialist would move to this area. It would be a socialist dream country. Their constitution would be the same as ours, except their first formal act will be to tear it in half, and burn it. Borders between the socialist states won’t exist, but they will build a fence to keep capitalists out of their heavenly dream. Oh wait, I am only repeating the experiment conducted in Europe that lasted for seventy years. They named that wall the Iron Curtain. I went to see the iron curtain a few months before it was finally torn down. Its sole function was to keep people in heaven, not to keep people out.

My guess is that a second experiment is not necessary, because it already exists, in China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela. Our citizens  who profess socialism can buy a one way ticket to one of these great countries so they can live the dream. Except, none of these countries will allow them in under their immigration laws.

My second guess is that within a couple of years these candy-ass socialists will be clamoring to return so they can protest their unhappiness in a free country.

As they say, “Freedom does not come free,” and if I can’t stand socialists, I’ll have to tolerate living with them as my payment for living in liberty.
