My Heart Cries Out

A government shut-down usually means people don’t get paid. The modern shutdown engineered by Congress insures that the Administration, Congress, the Supreme Court and most of the bureaucracies get paid. Congress wrote all of that into law, and you better believe that is one law they enforce. There is a small part of people whom they have defined as being non-essential, like museum curators, National Park workers and the like. These are the people who will get their pay delayed.I feel for these people whose lives suddenly take a turn for the worse. I cannot imagine what I would do if my income stopped.

The press and all the Democrats and too many Republicans are also beginning to support the delay negotiations for border security until the government reopens. A very sad affair.

Where were these people in 2008 when the economy tanked and millions of people found themselves without a pay check?  Somehow they learned to survive with help from the government. A lot of people lost their homes, cars, and some families broke up. Life was tough. The situation lasted up until Trump became president and jump-started the economy to the point where people again have jobs. People suffered for eight years. During this time those who are classified as non-essential received a paycheck. It didn’t matter that millions of people didn’t have the money to visit the museums, and the National Parks they kept getting paid. I never heard of anyone who lost a job tell me that as soon as business picked up they would get back pay. I didn’t hear that because that never happens when companies lay you off or go out of business.

With the economy booming and jobs being plentiful I am certain these non-essential people can get temporary employment to survive until Trump and Congress solves the border crisis. Certainly it won’t take eight years like the recession did, but it can last up to two years.

I whole heartedly support President Trumps tactic to keep the shut-down going until Congress agrees to negotiate.

I remember when President Reagan ran into a similar situation during his term. The Democrats got to him and promised him everything he wanted in the way of immigration reform as soon as the shut down ended. He took the bait and guess what? Congress shoved the promise right up his presidential ass. They did succeed in screwing up the laws so we have the current situation. It has to change and it won’t until both sides agree to talk. President Trump has repeatedly brought the leaders to the table attempting to resolve the problem. Each time the Senate and Congress brought the talks into stalemate.

If I were a non-essential government worker I’d be entering my résumé data online to find some job opportunities. Congress hasn’t been able to do jack-shit since 2008, and they have forgotten the meaning of the word work. They are a bunch of non-effective non-essential workers who get paid much too much for nothing.

Thank You God for Free Speech

Two Turkeys Spreading Their Feathers In Preparation for War

On this day I am very grateful for everything in my life. It has been a wonderful, stressful, happy, difficult, journey to this point, and I am thankful to be here. God has blessed me with three great kids, ten grandchildren, two wives, fabulous career, and a nest egg that I can live on. 

As I read the morning news I was struck by our Chief Justice John Robert’s reaction to President Trump’s calling a federal judge an Obama Judge. This struck Roberts as wrong. He proclaimed that all judges do their damnedest to rule by the law. 

What struck me funny was Robert’s hypocrisy. I supported Robert’s right up until he decided to make law during the Obama Care ruling. It was not his responsibility to decide if the individual mandate was a tax or a charge. He should have bounced the law right back to Congress to clear the matter, but instead he chose to decide for us. In my mind that made him an Obama judge.

What is even more telling is the recent bitter fight between republicans and democrats during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. If these judges are so neutral why is there a fight among the leaders when one is being confirmed? Clearly the Obama lovers were scared to death that this judge was not in the Obama camp. He will repeal Roe v Wade they claimed. The fact is that only Congress can repeal any law. The Supreme Court can only rule on it’s legitimacy within the Constitution. I believe the Obama lovers all know damned well the the Roe v Wade law allowing abortion is wrong and also know that if challenged before the court it will be stricken. So all of Robert’s sing song about neutral judges non-partisan judges is a bunch of bullshit and he knows it. He is anti-Trump and pro-Obama and as such he let the cat out of the bag about his proclivity to Progressivism.

Even though I felt strongly abut calling Robert’s out about his thinking, I am thankful for his position on the court. He is generally neutral in most cases and supports the constitution.

May you have a God blessed Thanksgiving today and every day.

You’re Fired

 

This evening’s news is disturbing. There is a report that an anonymous source fed an op-ed to a New York newspaper. In the article it reports that workers in the White House don’t do what the president tells them to do. Reporting that if what the president orders doesn’t make sense to him Anonymous does what he thinks is right. I’m sorry Anonymous but I didn’t vote for your sorry ass. No one who voted for the president wants an obscure insider changing his policy because he thinks the president is wrong.

My guess is that this person, who ever it is, never worked at an honest job in his/her life. What do you think Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, Tim Cook of Apple, or Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook would do if he gave an order and the underling decided to change it because he didn’t think it was right. I know what would have happened to me if my boss gave me an order and I ignored it. He might not have fired me but he would have demoted me and I certainly would have had a marine dress down to my face. (my boss was a former marine).

For all of you in la-la land who think Trump doesn’t know what he is doing don’t think you can do better. Most business people learn by making mistakes. In fact, my leaders taught that if I didn’t make mistakes I wasn’t trying hard enough. Failure begets success.

The owner of my company was an engineer who had an idea and turned it into a successful industry. I say industry because within thirty years of his success there were seventy competitors making the same product that made him successful. Many of them were carbon copies or his design. He had a habit of giving his Chief engineers little experiments to try. He often called me into his office to explain his latest idea. God forbid I told him it wouldn’t work. “Why? Have you tried it?”

“No sir.”

“Then how do you know it won’t work? Test the idea and report back to me this afternoon.”

Often he called me for results before I got back to my office. What I learned is that this man had an idea and he wanted positive physical proof of its veracity. If I had not gotten the experiment right on the first try I had to try again and again until the results proved to him the idea didn’t work, or that it did work but the device was impractical to make. He died a few years ago as a billionaire. I am still a lowly retired guy living on a very small fixed income. The President is a billionaire, what is your net worth smarty pants?

So, Mr. Anonymous get your ass out of the fire. Let the President replace you with a competent assistant who will allow him to try his ideas. Trust me, you will not last more than a day in the competitive environment of a commercial enterprise, and I don’t want you in my government either. So what does that leave you? Move to Venezuela where your type of worker might be tolerated.

If the President discovers who you are Anonymous I hope he has you demoted to cleaning toilets in Afghanistan.

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

Where Should I Start?

For the past two weeks I have itched to rant about the liberal dialog trying to destroy President Trump. First it was about the so-called Psychiatrist Dr. Brandy Lee who went to Congress to tell them Trump is a “public health risk”.  How she can tell this from watching him on TV baffles me. It is my assessment from looking at one picture of her and reading this one article that Ms Lee is a Obama ass-kisser and a liberal snow flake.  There, we are even. She said something I didn’t like now I’ve countered with an equally stupid comment. I feel better already. Maybe that is why she is saying what she did about Trump, she wants to ease our anxiety over our Trump admiration. As little as eighteen months ago my own spoken words were very negative about our then leader Obama. The difference between then and now is that any liberal who heard me labeled my speech racist and dismissed it, and me. Ms Lee is not caucasian, rather Asian, therefore I will also call her remarks racist.

The second issue to incite me occurred today when Democrats specifically Tricky Dicky Durbin from the Socialist state of Illinois went ballistic because Trump called Haiti a shit hole of a country. All I can say to Durbin is that the truth hurts. He has attempted to explain Trump’s wish to end “chain migration” as racist. I will give Durbin credit for creativity. His interpretation of chain migration is from the time when slaves chained to ships were brought to America against their will. On the other side of that coin, Durbin shows his total lack of understanding of the current immigration term which means one person granted amnesty may invite every relative he knows get into the country on his shirt-tails.

Tricky Dicky is up for election in 2018 so he has formally opened his campaign. Notice, he sat next to Trump during the unprecedented open meeting on immigration. He has been in the Senate long enough to belong to those who should retire because they have been in the office too long.

I have  never heard Durbin speak sensibly. He is a smooth and eloquent speaker, but after I listen to him awhile I ask myself what the hell did he just say? The words flow, but they don’t make any sense. Every time I see him on TV I look for what he is carrying in his right hand, I want to see the carpetbag. Before entering public office Durbin spent time in a law practice and as a teacher, but somehow he has managed to become a millionaire. I don’t know how people can become so rich. I worked my ass off for over sixty-nine years and I am far from a millionaire.

Unfortunately for Illinois, Durbin will get re-elected again. He has the entire democrat machine behind him and a sizable war chest. Republicans in Illinois don’t stand a chance.

Me Too!

I have posted this piece before, but it must be re-posted again and again until my liberal friends and RINO’s get the message; Trump is not going away.  I won’t let him, and neither will brave people like ex-marine Dick Ivey who wrote this piece. So many times, I have done exactly what he did. The Republicans send me a phony questionnaire knowing full well they will get my juices flowing. At the end they always ask for money. Now, how dumb is that? They know full well that I will not send them a cent until they begin to act as my voice in Congress. My vote got this lame bunch into office and my vote will replace them. I hope it isn’t too late when we finally make it happen.



This sums it up for me!
Donald R. “Dick” Ivey, PhD, is a minister, educator, technology executive, entrepreneur,  Marine Corp Veteran, and straight shooting Republican Patriot from Celina, Texas, who is Fed up!  Here’s what he has to say today.
I am now in my 70’s.
Recently I received a questionnaire and request for money from the Republican Party and strongly agree with every question, as I have ever since Obama was elected.
Unfortunately the one question that was missing is: What have the  Republicans done for the American people?
We gave you a majority in the House and Senate, and you never  listened to us. Now you want our money, my money, more money.
You should be more concerned about our votes, not our money.
You are the establishment which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets.
Well guess what? It’s not going to happen.
So far, TRUMP hasn’t asked for a dime.
You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course, but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what he has, especially in the state of New York.
Here’s why I wanted Trump. Yes, he’s a bit of an ass; yes, he’s an  egomaniac; but I don’t care.
      The country is a mess because politicians suck.
      The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, and illegals are  everywhere. I want it all fixed!
      I don’t care that Trump is crude.
      I don’t care that he insults people.
      I don’t care that he has changed positions.
      I don’t care that he’s been married 3 times.
      I don’t care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell.
      I don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorist.
Our country has become weak, and bankrupt. Our enemies are making fun of us. We are being invaded by illegals. We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hassid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in, “AND I JUST WANT IT FIXED.”
And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what We The People want and need.
I’m sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and sick of illegals. I just want this thing fixed!
Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn’t have lobbyist money controlling him; he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him; all you know is that he has been very successful and a good negotiator; he has built a lot of things; and, he’s also not a politician.
And, he says he’ll fix it. And, I believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.
I don’t care if the guy has bad hair.
Oh, and by the way, I don’t care if Sheriff Joe didn’t obey a zealot judge he upheld the law on illegal immigration. So I’m glad Trump pardoned him.
You are welcome to pass this on, or not.
Thought for the Day  “No country can sustain, in idleness, more than a small percentage of its numbers. The great majority must labor at something productive!”
Sincerely, Donald R. “Dick” Ivey, PhD, Celina, TX  (Google Donald R. “Dick” Ivey)
P.S.  No Borders, No Language, No Culture = No Country.
         I sure hopes this goes to everyone. Thanks, Dick

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!
