What a Revoltin’ Development This Is

Those of you who know me know that I am a very conservative guy. I believe in paying only those taxes that are lawfully mine to pay. I own firearms and am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. I support legal immigration only. It isn’t that hard to get in folks; play by the rules. I believe DACA is a ploy to weasel more illegals into the country. I hate socialism with a vengeance. Socialists are just communists in sheep’s clothing. I want the wall, and promoted Obama’s shovel ready stimulus of eight hundred billion dollars. It could have paid for walls on the North and South borders in a heart beat, with money left over to rebuild every bridge in America, and people would have gone to work. I believe in personal responsibility, and paying my way. That is how my democrat parents raised me. My parents were democrats because that is what my Dad’s bosses told him he was, and Dad told Mom. The Democrats are for the working man they told him. My parents lived their lives as conservatives. They had to, they came to this country legally through Ellis Island, had sponsors and jobs lined up. Then the Great Depression hit, and had to live on a shoe string. They abhorred “charity” from the government. Toward the end of her life my siblings and I learned that Mom may have been in the country illegally, but that is another story and a good one too. What I am trying to say is that I believe strongly in immigration. My only problem is with “illegal” immigration.

Eventually, I will get to the main point of this essay, bear with me.

Yesterday, my house cleaning crew came. House cleaning is one of those jobs that I refuse to do, so I delegate it to someone else, but they don’t work for free. The crew is a mother and daughter from Mexico. For the past three years that they have worked for me I have always wondered if they were here legally. It has been twenty years since they arrived, I thought at worst they may have been part of an amnesty. I still don’t know. I love to tease the daughter about her work habits, and often ask her why she doesn’t further her education. She never gives me a good answer. She was three when her parents brought her to America. She speaks excellent english without a hint of an accent, but she rattles off Spanish to her mother who still doesn’t speak English well. The Señorita has a good grasp of our government and the Constitution.

These women do excellent work, and Senora’s husband works for a remodeling contractor. Señor has also worked for me painting and dry walling. All of them work like the Energizer Bunny, they just keep on going. The entire family is religious and close-knit with many friends and relatives.

Daughter told me she is going to get a job in 2019. I asked her why when she is self-employed? “Well if I don’t get a job, I will lose my DACA and get put a deportation list.” WHAT? Why are you a part of DACA?”

“My mother thought it would be the best way for me to get a Social Security number.”

The wheels began spinning in my head. Obama invented DACA to allow unaccompanied minors into the country. This young lady has been here for twenty years she is twenty-three now. She wasn’t a minor, nor was she unaccompanied when she arrived. Given that DACA is six years old she would have been sixteen at the time and probably could have passed for younger.

All this is making my head explode. I feel for this girl. At three years old she didn’t come here by herself, her parents dragged her. Being an obedient child she obeys her parents. She is a victim of our government, and a Congress to unable to straighten out the mess, but she is also a victim of her parents. They are living the better life they came here to live; a house, cars, smart phones, and all the amenities of an American family.

What really scares me is how many more kids have signed up for DACA. I don’t think the law intended to include kids who have been here for thirteen years. No wonder the politicians call it a broken system. They have rewritten the immigration law in little dribs and drabs to the point where it is undecipherable and impossible to enforce. Combine that with an open border and the flood gates are open.

Now, here is the revoltin’ development. What do I do? Do I keep things the same? These people have become my friends and certainly do excellent work for me. Do I report them and become the Scrooge of the century? What do I do?  Yes, “what a revoltin’ development this is.”

Based on how easy it was for my friends to come here and to sign on to DACA thirteen years later I’d say the entire country has a revoltin’ development. How many hundreds or thousands of kids have joined the fray making it too big to fail? It’ll take Trump six years to straighten this out because of all the preposterous jack asses in the country who fight against him from every angle. We not only need to drain the swamp from all the government insider freeloaders we have to vote out the entire Congress. I think a shooting war would be easier; another revoltin’ development.

 

Overload

Richard Clowan & Frances Fox Piven

Back in the nineteen sixties a couple of sociology teachers Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a theory that would eliminate poverty. It became known as the Cloward-Piven strategy. They concluded that the people of the United States underutilized the many social programs set up by the government. They figured that if the welfare systems became overloaded with lawful claims that the government would go broke and ultimately install an equal annual salary system for everyone. Equality for all is a very strong socialistic concept, yet, the Cloward-Piven strategy is still very strong among Democrats. The latest President to operate on that concept is Obama. He never told us what his intentions were except to say he would “transform” the country, but there is strong evidence that he pushed us in the direction of bankruptcy.

I remember once during Obama’s campaign a reporter chasing after the Reverend Wright asking him what he thought Obama was going to do. In effect Wright’s response was “he’s gonna help an awful lot of poor people.”

What makes me think O was applying the Cloward-Piven strategy? Let me list a few ways:

  1. He inherited one of the worst economies ever, yet did very little to get it started again except to ask Congress for a trillion dollars to invest in “shovel ready jobs.’ We all knew he was lying through is pearly whites, and much later he admitted that there was no such thing as a shovel ready job. The extreme recession caused millions of people to collect unemployment and eventually they went on welfare.
  2. When the economy settled in to its dismal level and people gave up looking for jobs, he pushed the use of dis-ability as a way to keep them in dollars.
  3. He promoted the use of food stamps, and offered free phones to people who couldn’t afford them. The bill kept rising.
  4. Obama unlawfully disregarded the immigration laws and allowed a flood of people to enter the country without meeting any of the lawful requirements. We actually advertised in Central American countries that the gates were open. What happened was a flood of immigrants which we couldn’t handle at the borders, so he improvised ways to get them into the interior. The Feds packed plane loads of illegals and shipped them to cities around the country. None of them had a pot to pee in so they were shown the way to the government office to apply for benefits.
  5. Kids who came over the border without an adult were suddenly flooding the offices. They also needed help, and it was set up for them. Kids have to go to school but none of them could speak our language so we provided schools with teachers who spoke their language. The numbers on the cash register were really spinning by this time.
  6. Even with all the people not working on unemployment, welfare, and disability in combination with the flood of new people allowed in illegally he wasn’t able to break the bank. So what did he do?
  7. Suddenly, there were wars in the Mid-east and millions of people were displaced from their homes and needed places to go. Obama accepted millions of refugees and imported them into the interior of the US at night into towns all around the country. Yep, all of them were provided with housing, and benefits from good old Uncle Sam’s cash register.

With all this drain on our economy why didn’t we go bankrupt? It didn’t happen because of several reasons. The first one is that Uncle uses a printing press to make money when he runs short. The depression cause interest rates to drop to zero and that gave him the ability to borrow from countries like China, and Japan for free. It won’t be long before those interest rates on the borrowed money will rise and we will have to pay most of our income to interest. Another reason for not going broke was because of you, the working stiff. You were paying a couple of different ways. The first was through rising taxes, local, state and federal. A second way was happening in a very sneaky way and you didn’t realize it was happening to you. The cost of stuff was rising. The milk you buy didn’t get more valuable but it cost more. Try buying a pound of hamburger. Everything we buy was rising in price. Why? It had nothing to do with the value or the demand of the stuff you were buying it has to do with the fact that the value of your money has decreased. With all of the printed money going to pay off loans and to pay for all the welfare it drove down the value of a dollar. The five dollar bill is the new single, and a twenty is the new fiver.

I am on a fixed income and I have noticed the drain on my finances every time I go to the grocery store. A few years ago I spent seventy dollars for groceries and now I wind up paying three times that for the same amount of food. Thank God we are a very rich nation and were able to sustain ourselves as this drain goes on. I don’t think it would have been another year before we finally went bankrupt.

Think about it folks. How would you like to make what everyone else in the country is making? Sure the government would guarantee that you got the same amount every month, but I don’t think you’d be getting enough to live in the style you have become accustomed to. Think also, about the fact that you would work for your equal share and another soul will get the exact same amount for staying home. We will have to thank Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven for visualizing such an idyllic world.

The saddest part of this scenario is that Bernie Sanders ran against Hillary in the 2016 election  primary and his popularity was based on him selling the youth of this country on the concept of equal annual income for everyone.

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

Just Who Is The Racist?

lebron-celtics1.jpg

I love it. The true stripes of the black race are showing through loud and clear. The recent flap begins when President Trump invited the Golden State Warriors (evidently a basket ball team) to the White House to be congratulated by himself. One of the players who Trump invited decided to wait until his team voted on attending before he would commit. President Trump then disinvited him. It is either an honor or not. This player chose to decline the invite with his demeanor.

Today I read a piece by a player named Lebron James also an NBA basketball player. Lebron expressed himself by saying that being invited to the White House was great until Trump showed up. If ever there is a racist remark that is it. He implied that going to the WH while Obama was president was great. He didn’t say it, but it is clear to me that he doesn’t want the invitation from a white.

At one time I loved basketball as a sport. When the Chicago Bulls were champions and Michael Jordan, and Scottie Pippen were the stars I was a total fan. Today, I could care less who is playing and who is not. All I know is that most of the NBA greats can barely spell their own names. They are overpaid for what they do, and I refuse to buy into their lack of Patriotism. These guys will call Trump a racist and their refusal is based on their perception of him, but they are the racists. Okay, I know that the liberals all say that only white people can be racist. I say to the Libs go soak your head in a can of gas and light a cigarette. Blacks are more racist that whites, but whites were never slaves in America. Whites were enslaved in many other countries for centuries, but that doesn’t count in the eyes of our pampered, and coddled black professional players who feel that they are being oppressed because an ancestor of many generations removed was a slave. Get over it!

Points of View

Two paintings by the same artist but with different points of view. How strikingly different they are.

The video above was produced in 2010.

Which point of view are you? I am definitely the second.

 

First Things First

Remember when President Obama used about a dozen pens to sign a bill? He even took three pens to make the first letter of his name, O. Trump is being compared to President Harry S. Truman who is the only Democrat President aside from Jack Kennedy that I liked, and who was a decent, good man who put the country ahead of his personal life. I liked Kennedy because he appeared dynamic, I saw him at a campaign event when he visited the University of Illinois. My first impression is that he looked so healthy with a nice tan in March. I often wonder what the USA would be like today had he not been taken out by a Communist nut-job.

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.

crazy-obama.jpg

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?
