170326-I Can’t Help Myself

I know, I know, the election is over and we have a new president, but I can’t help myself these memes are too good not too share.

Sound Familiar?

TRUMP (You are going to love this)

“He’s nothing but a B-List TV personality. He has no business being in politics.”

“He’s been divorced and remarried. He can’t commit to anything.”

“He’s dangerously ignorant about international affairs. The Russian leaders will walk all over him.”

“He has no filter – doesn’t think before he speaks.”

“Until recently, he was a Democrat. He’s not a real Republican. He hasn’t paid his GOP dues.”

“He used to be Pro Choice. Now, suddenly he’s Pro Life?”

“That can’t be his real hair!”

“He’s a loose cannon. No one wants HIS finger on the nuclear button.”

“His opponent has the experience and political savvy to be president. He does not.”

“He’s just not presidential.”

“His temperament disqualifies him from ever being Commander-In-Chief.”

“He’s proven himself to be mentally unstable.”

“The military will never accept him as Commander-In-Chief. He’s not smart enough.”

“The GOP doesn’t want him to be the head of the party. He could never reach across the aisle to get anything done.”

“Most Republican voters will just stay home rather than go out and vote for him.”

“He’s almost 70. Much too old to be president.”

“Evangelicals will never support him.”

“He says (Let’s) Make America Great Again. How dare he say we aren’t still great?!?!”

“His intellect is thinner than spit on a slate rock.”

“90 percent of Republican state chairmen judge him guilty of simplistic approaches, with no depth in federal government administration and no experience in foreign affairs.”

“His spontaneity with reporters and voters plays well but also gives him plenty of space to disgorge fantasies and factual errors so prolific and often outrageous that he single-handedly makes the word gaffe a permanent fixture in America’s political vernacular. He confuses Pakistan with Afghanistan. He claimed once that trees contributed 93 percent of the atmosphere’s nitrous oxide…”

“After all his gaffs, he doubles down on them instead of admitting he made a mistake.”

“He’s threatening to upend our treaties and relationships with our allies by demanding that they pay for their own defense!”

“Because of his gross factual errors he might take rash action and needlessly lead this country into open warfare!”

“He’s racist, xenophobic, and fuels the fires of hatred!”

“You shouldn’t take him seriously. He has a penchant for offering simplistic solutions to hideously complex problems and a stubborn insistence that he is always right in every argument.”

“The rising turnout of his voters are not loyal Republicans or Democrats and are alienated from both parties because neither takes a sympathetic view toward their issues.”

“He wears the disdain he draws from the GOP elites as a badge of honor. Henry Kissinger’s championing the other GOP candidate and attacking him are actually helping him!”

“The fact that he could be deemed a serious candidate for president is a shame and embarrassment for the country.”

The New Yorker observed that his appeal “has to do not with competence at governing but with the emotion he evokes… [He] lets people get out their anger and frustration, their feeling of being misunderstood and mishandled by those who have run our government, their impatience with taxes and with the poor and the weak, their impulse to deal with the world’s troublemakers by employing the stratagem of a punch in the nose.”

“His unpopular opponent presided over the current Iranian crisis… and a reeling economy, yet surely the Democrat will prevail over him.”

“Is he Safe? …he shoots from the hip … he’s over his head … What are his solutions?”

“Voters want to follow some authority figure, — a leader who can take charge with authority; return a sense of discipline to our government; and, manifest the willpower needed to get this country back on track — Or at least a leader from outside Washington,”

Sound familiar? You’ve heard this all about Donald Trump, right?

Try Again. All this was said of Ronald Reagan in 1976 and 1980. Most of it was BY OTHER REPUBLICANS and Reagan turned out to be arguably one of the greatest presidents of the 20th Century.

Promises, Promises

Videos come to me from many friends. This particular one is seven minutes long, but the time watching it is very educational. It speaks to the wisdom of Conservatism, and the evils of Statism. Help me make this video go viral by clicking and watching to the end. You will not regret doing so.

Lower Than Stupid

Obama never ceases to amaze me. There are times when he sounds very smart, but most times he acts dumb as a rock. His goal to transform America is one of those dumb ideas. His campaign promise to “transform the greatest country on earth” is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. He never has told us what he was going to transform us into, not even during his snoozer Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly.

One of the more recent efforts to sell his Un-affordable Care Act is to spew the concept of people staying home to pursue their dreams instead of taking one of the several millions of new jobs he has not created. The logic is that if you have free health care you don’t need to worry about a job. That is lower than stupid, but it is his admin spreading that heresy.

How he amazes me is this, his base believes him and adores his father’s Kenyan thesis. Well, I don’t. I happen to believe that working for a living gave me self-sufficiency to pursue my dreams, notably a wife, a family, and some fun.

Watch this short video, put together by someone who is genius in graphic arts. Most likely this person didn’t let health care get in his way of creating an entertaining and insightful lesson in economics.

Opening Day For 2014 Elections

Cover of "Barack and Michelle: Portrait o...

Don’t They Make a Great Couple?

Traditionally, Labor Day is the kick-off for political campaigns. I adhere to the tradition and promise to pick up the frequency of posting my conservative political opinion. If you follow me and don’t want to hear bad stuff about liberal candidates like Obama then you might as well just un-follow me now. It is my goal to try to open some minds to the simplicity of Conservatism; a tough job to say the least. Most of us will not change our minds about our respective positions unless one points a gun at our heads.

To start off the 2014 campaign season, I found this article by writer Mychal Massie on my Facebook page. It is the kind of stuff I love to hear. Mychal posted this essay on his website Daily Rant on 22 February 2012. He makes real sense of the situation we face for buying into Hope and Change, and I commend him for it.

A Black Reporter Summarizes Barack

The below summarization of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 5 year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head. And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obamas is penned by a well known journalist of color?

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people.

The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.

He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

Let the games begin. It will be fun experiencing the slurs, mud slinging, lying, and slandering as our citizen politicians spend millions of other people’s money to get jobs that pay squat in comparison.

Dumb Like a Fox

There was a time when I believed Barack Obama was stupid, he didn’t get it. Now I believe the opposite, I am the one who is stupid, and failed to get it. What changed my mind? First let me explain why I believed he didn’t get it. Obama has such radical ideas on everything that it is hard to accept that any true American citizen would deliberately want to destroy the country, especially not the president. As the years have rolled by and I learn more about his agenda, I discover why he has all the radicals working for him, why his ideas are so nutty, and why he wants to “transform the greatest country in the world.”

I have always asked the question transform into what? He has never openly revealed his plan. Most presidents present their vision for the country, Reagan saw us as “The Shining City on the Hill.” Many others saw us as the beacon of hope for the world. The USA is the place where a person can come and find the American Dream. Obama only saw the USA as a place for Hope and Change. Hope for what and change into what? To this day, he has never really disclosed it  publicly. What he hopes for is to change America into a Progressive society. What is a Progressive agenda? If one reads the goals of the Communist Party of America they align with those of the Progressive movement. To me, that makes the Progressive movement a Communist movement. In other words, he wants everyone equal. Not equal in opportunity, but equal in everything. In his Progressive World there isn’t a one percent of rich, but there is a larger than one percent of élite who rule the equals.

A few weeks ago,Obama slipped and told the truth for once.

Obama declared: “If you’ve been successful you didn’t get there on your own.” He reasons, “I’m always struck by people who think ‘well, it must be because I was just so smart’. There are a lot of smart people out there!  ‘It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.’ Let me tell you something—there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there!”

The last sentence is what I call the truth, Let me tell you something—there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there!”

What he fails to recognize in that truth is that there are people who work very hard every day for eight hours, or maybe even ten hours. They may even have more than one job to make ends meet. They punch out and go home. Then, there are others who work hard everyday for twenty hours, and who finally go home exhausted, to a sleeping family. They are the owners of a business. They eat, sleep and dream their business.

No one denies that most people work hard at their jobs. My father was the hardest working man I ever knew, but he would never have invested his meager savings in any venture that might have caused him to lose it. My mother always wanted to start a business. She recognized the idea of making a profit from her talent and labor, but dad never allowed her to think about it. So here we are people. Good hard-working people, like Grumpa Joe’s parents, would share economically with the one percent who invested considerable money, time, and talent to  become successful. Most of these people also employ people like my mom and dad. My parents would never buy into the concept of government sharing because they survived on what they could earn using their own talent. They would have considered equalization of money from the government as charity, and the idea of going on charity repulsed them, it meant they were unable to fend for themselves. No man given the gift of life from God should depend on another without desperate need. What my mom and dad did believe was

“that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness….”

So my friends, when Obama stuck his foot into his mouth with his preposterous statement he needed a diversion to take some heat from his life. A phone call to a couple of his Dumb-o-crat pals with a suggestion to use an Alinsky diversion was in order. The good soldiers went right into action.

They knew their statements would be seen as a  violation of  the First Amendment right to free speech. The mayors knew it was stupid to speak of denying  a business license to a legitimate business that would employ people in their towns, and they knew the gay and lesbian community would mindlessly jump at an opportunity to showcase their cause, and they knew the media would make it headline news. What they failed to recognize is that the American public would see right through their stupidity and turn Chick-Fil-A into a conservative statement of support for the Constitution. Eat mor chikin!

Happy 236th Birthday America!

Ronald Reagan inspired the country each time he spoke. This address especially befits America’s 236 th birthday. Isn’t it wonderful that we have Youtube videos to look back and remember when leaders like President Reagan could lift the spirits of our entire population.

Received from a friend.

Happy Independance Day

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE

FLAG,

OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA ,

AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR

WHICH IT STANDS,

ONE NATION UNDER  GOD,

INDIVISIBLE,

WITH  LIBERTY

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

KEEP IT LIT!!  KEEP IT LIT!

for all of our other military personnel, where ever they may be.

Support all of the troops defending our Country.

And God Bless our Military

who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.

Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate the 4th of July

We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have,

of which we should be eternally grateful.

I watched the flag pass by one day.

It fluttered in the breeze,

A young Marine saluted it,

And then he stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform;

so young, so tall, so proud.

With hair cut square and eyes alert,

he’d stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him

had fallen through the years.

How many died on foreign soil;

how many mothers’ tears?

How many pilots’ planes shot down?

How many died at sea?

How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?

No, freedom isn’t free.

I heard the sound of Taps one night,

when everything was still.

I listened to the bugler play

And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times

That Taps had meant ‘Amen.’

When a flag had draped a coffin

of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,

of the mothers and the wives,

of fathers, sons and husbands

With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard

At the bottom of the sea.

Of unmarked graves in  Arlington .

No, freedom isn’t free.

Enjoy Your Freedom

and

God Bless Our Troops.
