You Say Tomayto and I Say Tomahto

The current line of stupidity being debated by our Congressional oversight committees is the difference between using two words, i.e. spy versus surveillance. Attorney General Barr spiked a firestorm by Democrats who knowingly spied on the Trump campaign. Evidently, the word spy indicates something evil, and surveillance is like watching your baby so it doesn’t fall out of the crib. The dictionary I consulted shows the word ‘surveillance’ as a synonym of the word ‘spy.’ Forgive me but it has been seventy-one years since I first learned the basics of our fine english language, and the Democratic Socialist Progressives have probably rewritten the dictionary since then.

What are differences between the two definitions? See for your self below.

spy | spī | noun (plural spies) a person who secretly collects and reports information on the activities, movements, and plans of an enemy or competitor. • a person who keeps watch on others secretly.

surveillance | sərˈvāləns | noun close observation, especially of a suspected spy or criminal: he found himself put under surveillance by military intelligence. ORIGIN early 19th century: from French, from sur- ‘over’ + veiller ‘watch’ (from Latin vigilare ‘keep watch’).

I guess surveillance implies that the person under surveillance can know it is happening, where, if someone spies on you it is more effective if you don’t know it.

Maybe it is my seventy-one year old education, but to me the two words mean the same thing.

The democrats wasted two years and over twenty million dollars of tax payer money to learn nothing, and are now determined to get their hands on the Mueller report so they can re-write it to say what they want it to say. No doubt they will read in between the lines to find clues and evidence that the Special Prosecutor left out. Because of their embarrassment over not finding that the Russians didn’t have anything to do with Hillary’s loss they are now going berserk over the idea that maybe, just maybe, the Democrats were behind the thing.

Everyone in this country knows that Hillary initiated the Russian collusion story and she used it to turn attention away from her treasonous behavior as Secretary of State. What really bothers me is people in Washington pretend not to know any of this stuff. The only way they will admit to knowing it is to investigate the matter for themselves, and we know investigating takes months and a lot of tax payer money. In the mean-time the perpetrators keep running further and further away from their crimes.

Our country is in a civil war, Left against Right, and both sides will not give in until one is a clear winner. Eventually, the war will escalate from using words, tricks, investigations, smears, dirty elections to using our Second Amendment rights to bear arms and to put the whole shebang out of its misery.

I’m ready, are you?

Racist = EVIL = Progressive

The difference between President Trump’s problems and President Obama’s is the word racist. Any time Obama did a stupid thing, or something we didn’t care for, and we dared to speak up and challenge O, the First Amendment protected press called us racist and shut us down. Keeping quiet was a huge mistake.

This country is not racist. Who are the racists?  Everyone who fights Trump at every move he makes. All he has been guilty of is fighting, and undoing all the wrongs that Obama and his Democrat cohorts have been propagating for the past sixty years. I can say that because when President Lyndon Johnson initiated the War against Poverty and other similar programs his sole intention was to subjugate the black population to the Democrat party. No-one ever called a single democrat a racist in the last sixty years. Why? Because all Democrats are racist and as such would never stand up against one of their own. There is only one more word by which I can describe a Democrat, and that is EVIL.

Today, Steve Bannon was let go from the White House staff. Trump is definitely bowing to leftist pressure on this one. Bannon was the one advisor who had the balls to let Trump know it is okay to fight the likes of North Korea, and Islamist terrorists. If I were Trump’s advisor, I’d be going after Hillary, for breaking law after law while Secretary of State. I’d be cleaning house at the IRS to get rid od all political opposition. The IRS should only concentrate on collecting our tax money. They don’t need a police force, or sticking their noses into dictating one-sided thinking for who should be granted a 501-c3 status. If you ever wondered how Obama thought about the charge he made for the cost of Obama Care think about this. Early on he designated the IRS to be the ones to collect the money and to police the provisions of payment. That automatically puts the charges of the ACA into the tax category. The dishonest president knew the public would balk at another tax so he lied and hid the charge ultimately letting the Supreme court decide to call it a tax.

Tear down more monuments it is good for erasing history, and making us more and more communist every day.

TRUMP-FIGHT-AMERICANS-009-01-800x416.jpg

One conclusion I can draw about anyone who fights to unseat Trump from office is someone who doesnt want a President who will fight for the American People. What does that make them?

Blue State In a Sea of Red

Ever since Tuesday night Lake Michigan has been rising. No, it is not due to global warming it is from the Democrats crying about their candidate losing big. Every time I see the national election map and see the big blob of blue surrounded by Red States it makes me cry too. My vote meant nothing toward electing Trump. Hillary got 69% of the vote and Trump got thirty. I could have stayed home and had the same effect on the election. Even our Republican Senator lost his job. There are times when I want to move out of Illinois to get away from all the blue, but I have too many roots here and I am anchored forever.

Electoral votes by State

Popular vote by county

I wish to thank our own Community Dis-organizer for showing us how strong the Constitution really is. Even with his mighty pen, and the entire government supporting him, his efforts to damage the sacred document managed only to make some small dents. Hopefully, his successor will undo the damage with his equally powerful pen. Our job now is to re-construct the principles of the document, and beat back any new affronts to take it down.

Back in 2008, I never thought the battle to take back the country would take eight years, but thankfully, the Tea Party movement stuck to it and managed to wake us up to who is in charge. Without the constant effort of my Tea Party and all the others across the country Hillary would be dancing a jig with Bill like Irish leprechauns.

The one principal mistake I saw in Obama’s run was his transformation of the greatest country in the world. “Into what?” It doesn’t make sense to destroy the greatest country to make it equal to all the lessor countries, and thus force us to become third class citizens. It makes more sense to help the rest of the world rise to the level of the USA. Unfortunately, Leftists don’t accept capitalism as the way to make it happen. Instead of equal opportunity for all they rather push equal outcomes for all. Communism has never worked in any country where it has been tried. It won’t work now either, but we now have a country full of unemployed over educated young people who have never left the nest to become responsible for their own outcome.

At this point, the United States has almost completed the great give away of American manufacturing to lessor countries like China, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea. The seers of the time sold the idea of sending all our menial manufacturing jobs to these countries because we would need all of our educated people to staff the knowledge sector. We would be the ones teaching the world how to do things. Except of course, that all the motivation to learn how to do things left the country with our industry. Most invention is realized by the need to solve problems. Many of the problems occur during manufacturing. The people needed to solve those problems now live in China, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea.

The leftists are now working on the financial sector. They orchestrated the housing bubble back when Bill Clinton signed a law that encouraged, no, I mean forced lenders to loan, no, to give money to anyone who wanted a house. Never matter that they could not afford a house. The liberal mind-set decrees that it is everyone’s right to own a house. It took a few years to happen, but the bubble finally burst and we were left with a major recession, no, it was a depression worse than the one that occurred in 1929. There I go again spewing history  that no longer applies to modern generations of kids who run up astronomical loans to finish college, and graduate with nonsense degrees which earned them knowledge about everything, but about nothing, nothing useful that is, now they lobby for free tuition too.

When Obama began his transformation, I was invigorated to educate as many people as I could to the perils of his policies. This blog which was going to be a blog that would explore human potential evolved into a teach the world about the evils of Obama’s policy blog. When he was elected the second time, I became depressed and have been so for four years. My personal blog-pieces diminished to almost zero. The depression caused a writer’s block and I reverted to re-blogging other people’s posts that mirrored my own philosophies. Now that Trump has been elected, I am again invigorated to speak freely about the benefits of conservatism.

From a human potential perspective, Donald Trump is a great subject. He knew the mountain he had to climb to become president, but he never let up. He set a goal, and visualized himself winning this election. Those are two key human potential concepts; goal setting, and visualization. There many other steps he used like defining the goal, listing the steps you would have to take to make the goal. He identified all the things he didn’t know, and found answers via experts. His mastery of using all the rules of goal setting and positive thinking is remarkable.

Living in a blue state means that I am constantly bombarded by nonsensical liberal BS. Illinois is among the lowest of the states in jobs, they continue to raise taxes, which only drives people and companies to leave the state. For instance, they put an item on the ballot to change the constitution to force the state to use all money collected from transportation, like gasoline taxes, license fees, tolls etc onto roads and bridges. Sounds good doesn’t it? Except it occurred to me that these taxes now put more money into the treasury than income taxes do. So where will they get money to support all non transportation related expenditures like social programs? You got it, by getting this constitutional amendment passed it gives the royal highness’s in Springfield an excuse to raise taxes. Currently there is talk of raising taxes 33%.

The one thing the election did was to firm up the jobs of all the Democrats currently in charge, and because they won with such a large majority they will argue that they have a mandate to raise taxes to save the state from bankruptcy. The first item on their agenda will most likely be to raise salaries for all state workers, legislators, and administration. Forget the unfunded over bloated pension funds of these same people, teachers, police, and firefighters. The only ones who are middle class in this state work in the public sector.

 

 

A Great Patriot Letter

This came from a Democrat! I read it and it certainly hits the nail where it would hurt.
Google has the letter posted on their web site. This is well written…….and should be read by everyone in these United States! It will be well worth the three minutes it requires to read this. It is quite impressive.

You can be Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Independent or Libertarian, and I’ll bet this will hit a nerve. Our country is in real trouble.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

letter_email_writing.gif
>> Senator Patty Murray
>> Senator Maria Cantwell
>> Washington, DC 20510
>
Dear Senators:
>> I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.
>> Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when  I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the
taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.
>> Last year, the president spent an estimated $1.4 billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $ millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America’s answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the “perfumed princes and princesses” of our country.
>> In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. “Obamacare,” a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance. (Let’s eliminate that exemption and put the Congress under the Affordable Health Care Act)
>> You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the “one percenters,” consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).
>> You understand very well the only two rules you need to know – (1) How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote ) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called “safety net” has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps -pretty much all Democrat voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud and absolutely no congressional oversight?
>> I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest  profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.
>> As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 -1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” I’m only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?
>> While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use, and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.
>> As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me
“You’ll just have to take a pill,” while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.
>> The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go on line where many others will have the chance to read one person’s opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.
>> I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $19 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.
>> My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy the country that I deeply love. You have put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entireCongress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits and replacing their retirement with the same Social Security plan the rest of us will receive (if they don’t put that program into bankruptcy) . This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.

Sincerely,

Bill Schoonover
3096 Angela Lane
Oak Harbor, WA
>> Maybe….just maybe this is the reason the political establishment is against Trump. He may just kill the goose……

No Extra Words Needed

Stupid Is As Stupid Votes

CroMagnon1-2

After watching an evening of political opinion news programs I find myself laughing out loud. Every day someone presents another revolutionary expose that will bring  Madam Hillary down. After watching Obama win two terms when he should have never gone beyond the Illinois senate I have come to  the conclusion that the people who vote for people like Obama and Hillary don’t give a toot about a candidate’s facts, ethics, principal, their ability to lead, to think, or their respect for the United States Constitution.

My guess at this point is that Hillary will not only take the Democrat nomination but will beat the best qualified Republican ever to walk the face of the earth. She will do this not because she has a thimble full of ability to lead the country, but because she will appeal to the Cro-magnon instinct in the people who will vote for her because the idea of being ruled by a Queen appeals to them.

Hillary should have left Washington when her husband degraded her with his sexual escapades in the oval office. Instead she sold out for the prospect of becoming Queen which only reveals her true self.

Many new books will come out in the next fifteen months that will attempt to knock Madam Hillary off the Democrat pedestal, and many authors will make a fortune, but none of them will help take her down. Why? The people of America are too damn stupid to care.

Just In Case

stock-photo-businessman-foot-about-to-tread-on-someone-s-dreams-concept-for-broken-dreams-bullying-or-173113400

you forgot, or never knew . . .

Here is what happened on January 1, 2014 :

Top Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%

Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%

Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%

Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%

Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%

Estate tax went from 0% to 55%

Remember this fact: These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted for these taxes.

These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

****************************************************************

Of course if you are in the 48 % of the country that doesn’t pay tax then this doesn’t mean anything to you.

If you are in the 52% that have a job, and or have a nest egg then all of the above affects you.

Elections are coming!

Take our country back!
