Coming From Someone Younger

One thing old guys like me get from the youth is that I’m too old and I don’t understand the problems of youth. Well, granted my youth has been long gone, but I remember what my feelings were when I was young and what my priorities were. They aren’t much different today than they were in 1950. There were some big differences, like we didn’t have TV, or video games or computers, or social media to complicate our lives. In fact, telephones were still a rarity. I found this video by an Eagle Scout which pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter of the Boy Scouts bending to the will of communists, and he is spot on.

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.

Elections Have Consequences

trump-media-crying.jpg“US” by Paul Genova 

  (Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016.
I haven’t said too much about this election since the start…but this is how I feel….
  I’m noticing that a lot of people aren’t graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.
  Some are apparently “triggered” because they are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.
  How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.
  You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.
  You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
  You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.
  You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created “us” when you attacked our flag

  You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.
  You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.
  You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.
  You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

  You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

  You created “us” the silent majority
  You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
  You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
  You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.

You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

        And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.

  And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
  With ballots, not riots.
  With ballots, not looting.
  With ballots, not blocking traffic.
  With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”
  “YOU” created “US”.
  It really is just that simple.


Who Needs Borders?


What would the world look like if there were no borders separating countries? The answer is a 2016 version of pre-historic times. That is, a world filled with people, buildings, roads, parks, plazas, and all things we cherish as necessary to live a full life with people roaming about killing, stealing, raping, and pillaging at will.

People would be able to wander freely from one place to another without passports or VISA’s. Why would they be necessary? Since there are no defined borders would there even be countries? How would the world be governed? Would we rely on the feckless United Nations to rule? How would we communicate? Languages would still be a means of separation. What about laws? Whose laws would we follow? How would economies be handled? No doubt, people would migrate from place to place for jobs, but would there be tariffs? Who would we pay taxes to? Would there even be taxes? If not, how would we pay for infra-structure and services like police and fire? Which police department would respond to a 911 call? What if your house was on fire, whose fire department would be called?

No, no, that’s not what we mean by open borders say the Progressives. We vision it to be more like Europe where there are open borders between countries, but the countries retain their right to govern their own country. Even the European Union has borders meaning that they had to draw a line somewhere. People within the United States, Canada, and Mexico can move freely between their own states and provinces even though the states have their own borders. At what point would someone moving from one country to another be expected to follow laws? Whose laws. Imagine a territory along the USA-Mexican border where citizens of each country melt across the border into each other’s territory but follow the laws of their own country while living in the neighboring country, and voting in each other’s elections.  Would police, if there were any, have to enforce the laws of two countries within this zone. How large would this melting-pot-zone be? Once the zone is defined we are back to borders again.

Those who are learned in World history will know that in the beginning when the dinosaurs and cave men roamed the earth there were no borders. Circumstances caused an evolution of people to collect in groups for the purpose of safety. Their language evolved into a unique way to communicate. As these groups wandered from place to place they began to realize that some of their neighbors had a better hunting ground, more water, or more shade, whatever, then began to raid each other to get the same for themselves. Pretty soon a leader emerged who decided he was above all his subjects and he defined a territory that was his. These ruled territories evolved into countries, and the leaders were called Kings.

North America was inhabited by Indians who had no defined borders, but there was always fighting between tribes over something. The result was they defended an area which was their turf. They had open borders, but they fought over hunting grounds regularly.

If Progressives continue to pursue an open border policy, it is my opinion that the USA should just annex Mexico and Canada to end all arguments about how to control the borders between us. We could mix the money and accept dollars, pesos, and looneys. Americans could  go to Canada for free health care, and poor Mexicans could come to the USA for free health care as they do now, except Canadians would still come to the USA to and pay for healthcare to get cured before the disease killed them. Rich Mexicans would get the same benefits they do now, but which they don’t share with the poor Mexicans.

Muslims entering this new borderless mega-country could set up their mosques in the deserts of the south where it as sandy and as hot as it is in their home countries. They would fit in well with the rattlesnakes and wild pigs roaming the area, and since many Mexicans still embrace Christianity, there would be plenty of infidels for them to convert.

Canada would still speak English with a funny accent, except for Quebec which will speak French. All road signs will be in four languages, English, Arabic, Mexican, and French. Speed limit signs will be in mph and kph; distance signs be in miles and kilometers.

Businesses will answer the phone with a directory of buttons to push in order to speak the language of your choice. Labels on food packages will be printed in multiple languages around the cans or on the sides of boxes. Bags will be printed flat and there will be a small space allowed for the product identification. Nutritional values will be listed in both US and metric units.

Schools will cease to teach history because no one will agree to learn about cultures other than their own. Teachers will lecture into a microphone and students will have ear-phones to hear the lecture in their home language. Each school will have the flags of all three countries. The pledge of allegiance will be to all three flags. Special sections in the gym and lunchroom will be designated for the gang you belong to. Students will all sport a school logo tattoo on their upper arm. When a kid transfers schools a large black x will be tattooed over the former logo and the new logo added above. School buses will be routed the same, except drivers will be required to speak all the languages spoken by the students.

If by now you haven’t figured out that I am being facetious, I am. Progressives do however take all this seriously and believe that the world can be ruled by a single leader whose initials will be BHO, or HRC.



Oprah Corners Trump

A good friend just sent me a link to the video shown below. In it, Oprah Winfrey interviews Donald Trump and asks him about the possibility of running for president. His responses to her questions are not much different than what we have heard in his campaign speeches. The surprising thing about this interview is that it took place twenty-five years ago.

What his answers have told me is that not much has changed in twenty-five years. I am certain that is why Trump resonates with many people in America, he is just as sick of the same old same old as we are. His winning attitude and determination to make our allies pay a price for our defending them, or giving them complete industries without any remuneration is right on the money.

The  new world order that Progressives like Hillary and Obama continue to push down our throats is something we see in Star Wars. Yet, in the movie even though the world is united into one big governing  body they always seem to be putting down internal revolutions while sending Starships into the galaxy to fight off the evil in the universe. Somehow, that doesn’t seem like it is any better, or different, than what we are dealing with today.

What George Lucas has not given us in his Star Wars films is a look at what life is like on planet Earth. Maybe I should take that on as my next alternative history project. If ever I complete the book I started over a year ago I will attempt a story depicting Life on Earth during the Star Wars Era. I think I will need to drink a lot more wine to get those visions going.
