The Corona Effect

Everything that we see on the news is about Corona.  Corona, Corona, Corona!!!  Almost like a bad episode of The Brady Bunch…  It’s effing depressing…

I’ve been thinking about the following, and Douglas Flint over at American Thinker beat me to it.  Some excerpts from the article follow:

I fear Donald Trump has taken the bait and he knows this.  He is trapped in a car barreling down the highway toward economic disaster and a great depression, and he knows it.  He is desperately looking for an off ramp but unfortunately he has turned the accelerator and the wheel over to the “experts.”

The “experts” are people of genuine theoretical scientific knowledge but no real-world experience and no capability of risk assessment beyond the specific risks in their chosen field.  They are focused on the virus and only the virus, because it is not their job to worry about anything but the virus.  They could, without blinking an eye, recommend a six-month in-home lock-down.  You could scream, “But people will starve by the millions!”  That is not their concern.  If they starve to death in their homes, they did not die of corona virus and thus the “experts” have done their jobs.  It doesn’t help that almost all of them are government employees for life guaranteed to receive full pay and benefits until the end of the known universe.  They are not capable of grasping the concept that no work equals no pay, no insurance, no food, and finally nowhere to live.

But there’s another bunch of people in that car.  Malevolent people within the government, federal and state, who would love nothing more than to slam the car into the wall, destroy the economy, the lives of millions of people, and destroy America’s preeminence in the world, and the Trump presidency, in order to give themselves the ultimate power, the power of life or death over each citizen.  They will fight furiously when and if the president tries to take back control of the car.

At some point very soon, Trump will have to accept the fact that the ones he has turned the car over to are not going to stop, slow down, or turn.  There is no incentive or reason for them to do so.  So far, Trump has confined himself to tossing money out the windows of the speeding car hoping somehow this will soften the blow.  It won’t and it can’t.

Insane ideas are being hatched (in a Harvard faculty lounge?) such as loaning businesses money to pay employees when there’s no productive work to do or revenues to collect, with a fingers-crossed promise that the loans will be “forgiven” if certain criteria are met.  But we know our government bureaucrats  all too well.  Contributed to DNC?  Loan forgiven.  Contributed to RNC?  Sorry, you needed to spend 80% of that loan on payroll, but records show you only spent 79.97% on payroll.  Payback in full plus penalty interest.  Don’t have it?  Sell the business to my friend or family or give Uncle Sam a controlling stake.

No, the smart play, the only play for any businessman is to lay off your employees.  No telling how long this will go on, so why burden yourself with an insane relationship with the federal government?  Your employees will probably be better off drawing full unemployment and you’ll probably be able to pick them up at a considerable discount when and if the crisis starts to ease.

And the longer this goes on, the harder the recovery will be.  Inflation will be a major factor if money is continuously tossed out of the car.  States will have to raise the unemployment premiums on the few surviving businesses in order to cover their enormous outlays.  People will not want to, or be able to, go back to life as usual or spending as usual.  After all, what has happened once can happen again.  Better to hunker down, don’t buy that new car, don’t upgrade that house, don’t spend that $150 on a dinner out or a rock concert.  Become more like our depression-era grandparents.

The sad and scary part is that the safe political bet for Trump is to let the “experts” slam the car into the wall, destroy the country and the lives of millions, and rule as a new-era FDR, with the country in permanent depression, the capital hidden in walls, under rocks, or in treasury notes until better times.

The right thing to do, even if it costs him the presidency, is to kick the crazy “expert” driver out of the car and grab the wheel and steer for the off ramp.  It may already be too late.  But it’s the only chance to save the country.

And yes, those he kicks out of the car or subdues will all become his open enemies now with twice the power because of the trust he gave them in the first place, and because of the media’s readiness to embrace them as they trash the president daily on all the networks.

As I start Week 4 working from home, I’m more fortunate than some in my company.  My company is a manufacturing company complete with an engineering department.  Our plants are shut down, and the employees furloughed.  Slowly, the office staff is being furloughed as well as funding for continuing the projects that need to be built (but can’t) dry up.  The engineering department that I am a part of deals with the  designs of products to be built and sold to customers, but that will not last.  While I still have funding, it won’t be forever as that funding will go away within the next 2 to 3 weeks (my guess) because all businesses operate on cash flow.  If we’re not building, we’re not receiving compensation for our work.  No business has an endless supply of money – eventually, it will run out.

Other items that I’ve tried to keep track of is the myriad of executive orders from governors and other officials throughout the country.  One of the most insane are the orders of some governors to release prisoners from jail, their directions to law enforcement to ignore forms of some crime, close gun stores (but let’s keep the marijuana dispensaries and liquor stores open), and plead with the criminals not to commit crimes during this crisis.  I have no idea how that’s going to keep the law-abiding safe, but seems to increase the likelihood of more victims without a means to protect themselves.

But despite this, firearm sales were at an all time high in March, so perhaps some people are getting a clue that government will not keep you safe, but only you are responsible for your own safety.

Regardless, we will not go back to the way things were before.  Our new “normal” may not be to our liking.

Stay safe, my friends.

Hyper-Virus?

Almost two months has passed since I’ve last posted something, and it’s been a struggle to find time to write. It certainly hasn’t been for a lack of topics!

The big thing now is the Corona Virus, which the media (more on that later) is telling us has a 1% to 3.4% mortality rate (sources and mileage vary). While this doesn’t seem like much, if you run the numbers of roughly 350 million people living in the United States, a 2% mortality rate (I’m being generous) translates to 7 million people!! While the very young and the older generations are most at risk (undeveloped and weak immune systems), that’s still a lot of people!

The media and Socialist Democrats are blaming President Trump for not taking action quick enough, or not doing enough, or something. Personally, he might have done more, but I don’t see how because he has been opposed politically by the Socialist Democrats and criticized constantly by the media no matter what he does. I do imagine that he is relying upon experts in their respective fields to take the appropriate actions.

When this crisis first started, flights from Asia (China) were restricted. Then, when Europe started becoming a Petri dish, flights from Europe were restricted. The President’s critics cried “foul” stating that this wouldn’t contain the virus to Europe, but rapidly quieted down when European countries began closing their borders and their own countries down to halt the spread of infection.

Now, let’s be realistic – the Corona Virus will come to the United States (it’s here already), people will become infected, and their will be casualties. What closing the borders (walls, restricted travel, etc.) will do is slow the spread of the virus, giving our health providers and resources time to study the virus, and to develop better ways to treat the victims and better protect the healthy.

That is the sane, rational course of action – something the media and Socialist Democrats know very little about.

The Socialist Democrats look at this to gain more power for their cause and to diminish that of the President. The criticism that the President has had to endure is absolutely uncalled for in the face of this crisis. While working on legislation for releasing funds and resources for combating the Corona Virus, the Socialist Democrats of the House tried slipping governmental funding for abortion into the bill. And then after the bill was submitted to the Senate tried leaving DC stating that their part was done. Obviously, the Socialist Democrats of the House are not concerned with the health and well being of the Citizens of the United States.

The Media reporting is not news, or at least, not very much of their content is news or useful information. When there are endless panels discussing the topic of the day with “I think” and “I believe” qualifiers in their statements, that’s entertainment, not news or information. This is for ratings points, which translates into revenue for the Media. Unfortunately, the Stock Market failed to discern the difference between opinion/entertainment and news/information, and went for a massive tumble based on the hysteria ginned up by the Media.

Now I’m not stating that there isn’t a problem – I believe there is – I just think that the Media is over-hyping the problem, and causing more issues than what there should be. Think Sargent Joe Friday “Just the Facts, Ma’am” and you’ll see where I’m going with this. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have empty shelves where toilet paper would normally be stocked.

That’s all for now. Hope it’s not another two months to the next post…

Bumper Sticker Logic and Other Ranting

Hello all. It’s been a while, I know. As you may remember from the last post, the workload from both the personal and professional lives has increased almost exponentially. That means there isn’t much time left to vent intelligently here.

To paraphrase a couple of people I know, I hate bumper-sticker logic except when it’s dead on. And quite frankly, some of the memes I’ve seen floating around are not only dead on, but so dead-on it hurts.

And then there are events and people that get me going so bad that I think I’m going to stroke out because of the sudden increase of blood pressure. These situations are so bizarre that common sense is nowhere to be found. Needless to say, most of this is coming from our elected officials who seem to be hell-bent on destroying this country.

So, without further ado, let’s get started.


Watched the House Managers walk the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, and it reminded me of a perp walk…which probably isn’t too far from the truth given that Schiff and Nadler were in the lead…


Watching Pelosi sign the aforementioned Articles of Impeachment with a billion and one pens with her name engraved on them was surreal at best. After the signing, she handed the pens out to various people in attendance, smiling all the time. One would expect a solemn occasion, not a celebration with party favors.

Thought Ted Cruz said it best when he stated the Pelosi should have used crayons instead of pens…


“A Generation that has been taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it. Let that sink in…”


Anyone who is concerned with individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution should be dismayed at the situation in Virginia. For those uninformed…

Virginia elected a majority of Democrat/Socialists into both the State House and Senate, and have a Democrat as governor. The Democrat/Socialists stated first act is to declare that gun control is the first order of business.

Now not a single one of the proposed gun control measures has crime control in their scope. Instead, it’s a sweeping banning/registration/confiscation of firearms from law abiding Virginians, and has a dose of extreme protection order (aka red flag laws) on the top like a cherry. Overnight, millions of Virginians would become felons if the proposed laws pass into law.

It doesn’t matter that the proposed laws are in opposition of Virginia’s Constitution – the laws must be passed to satisfy Governor Northram’s pledge of fealty to Micheal Bloomburg, who dumped millions of dollars into the Virginia elections on the behalf of Virginian Democrat/Socialists. There must be payback once the ring is kissed…

The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) is having their annual Lobby Day (not a protest) on the capitol grounds, but the Governor has declared an emergency stating that firearms cannot be carried on the capital grounds (it’s lawful to do so).

The Virginia Governor has declared war on the rights of the citizens of his state, and it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out. I’m going to make an educated guess that some laws will pass, those laws will be challenged in court, and either be overturned on Constitutional grounds, or the People of Virginal will elect a Republican legislature the next election cycle with the expressed purpose of removing those laws.

Of course, 20/20 hindsight should tell everyone not to elect Democrat/Socialists to offices, especially those backed by out-of-state billionaires.


From an undocumented article published after the West Freeway Church of Christ shooting:

Well, it happened again in Texas. Evil walks into church with a gun and starts shooting wanting to kill. This time the good guys were prepared and ended the evil act within seconds using their own guns, killing the evil person.

We all know what happens next. The leftist media will trot out politicians and law enforcement administrators to tell us how we must pass more laws on guns, ban guns, or whatever irrelevant nonsense they can up with.

This Texas incident can teach us many things. But one thing it demonstrates very well is that it’s not the gun itself that’s the problem here. There were several guns in that church in Texas. One was used for evil and others were used to stop evil. Was one gun bad and the other gun good? Why does the left want to eliminate them all? The good guys gun did exactly what it was supposed to do; protect the flock and defeat evil. The bad guys gun was misused for evil. It is so obvious that the gun is not the problem, THE PROBLEM IS THE PERSON AND NOT THE GUN!

There is also a lesson here on gun free zones and I have written on it before. In a gun free zone, the evil person with a gun can kill indiscriminately and at will knowing there is no one there to stop him. Thank God churches are not gun free zones in Texas. We can learn from them how illogical they are and do not solve any real problems, they just make them worse.


From a comment by magno et malo lupo3:

There comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’. I have yet to reach that point in my life but understand that it now takes longer to recover than it did when I was 30 or so!!!

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations and sometimes intentions of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.


When the politicians start spouting off that limiting or banning firearms will reduce crime, let’s remember:

• Murder is illegal.
• Attempting murder is illegal.
• A felon owning or possessing a firearm is illegal.
• Shooting people indecriminately is illegal.
• Using firearms in a criminal manner is illigal.
• Criminals do not go through background checks (universal or otherwise) to obtain firearms.

Therefore, explain how criminals will follow new laws. Explain how new laws will make the population safer. Explain how restricting law-abiding citizens rights to firearms even more will make us safer.

If the politician cannot fully explain the above, then their reasoning for passing new gun control laws is invalid and unconstitutional.


We can ban, regulate, or make illegal to own firearms and any other weapon, but evil will still find a way to create chaos and death. London, England is a perfect example – personal ownership of firearms is highly restricted, but crimes using knives and other weapons is at near epidemic levels. Around England, home invasions are on the rise as well, and the population has no effective means to defend themselves from personal harm.


“Gun Control isn’t about crime. It’s about disarmament of people who would oppose a tyrannical socialist government. The Socialists claims that it will prevent or stop crime are simply lies to get disarmament laws passed.” – unknown


Gun free zones do not create crime free zones – quite the opposite. Criminals know that their chance of being injured or killed by a citizen with a concealed firearm is greatly reduced, therefore increasing the crime rate in that area. The criminal will bring a weapon (including a firearm) to these areas to commit their crimes.

It’s also why greater than 97% of all mass murders occur in a gun-free zone – it’s a target-rich environment without anyone being able to fight back.

My opinion is that the politicians who came up with this idea are morally and criminally liable for each and every death and injury that has occurred in these gun free zones.

Yes, I’m talking about you, Joe Biden…


If Liberal Politicians treat us this poorly when we’re armed to the teeth, just imagine what they would be willing to do to us if they take away our guns?


I believe that the Democrat/Socialit’s end game is to disarm the public, leaving the remaining arms in the hands of the police and military. For what purpose can be summed up in this quote from Lenin:

“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”

It’s not about safety or reducing crime – it’s about control.


Moving on…

If you remember the March for our Lives in 2018, it was promoted as a grass-roots response to gun violence in the United States, primarily concerning school shootings as illustrated by the Parkland murders. However, things aren’t quite what they seem…

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (among others):

The March For Our Lives Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) “social welfare” organization launched in the aftermath of the deadly 2018 shootings at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is bankrolled almost entirely by large donations in excess of $100,000. The group reported $17,879,150 in contributions and grants over the course of 2018, its first year of operations. Ninety-five percent of those contributions came from 36 donations between $100,000 and $3,504,717—a grand total of $16,922,331.

The group’s reliance on a small number of large donations raises questions about its ability to turn rally-goers and supporters into donors. It also provides ammunition to gun-rights activists who have long cast the gun-control movement as driven not by grassroots supporters, but by billionaire benefactors like Michael Bloomberg.

The group’s 990 tax form shows another 38 donations totaling between $5,000 and $100,000, which together accounted for an additional $876,114 of revenue. The remainder, just 0.5 percent of total receipts, came from those giving less than $5,000.

Not grass-roots, but another attack on the rights of law abiding Americans by a few power-hungry billionaires who have nothing better to do than to screw around with ordinary people.


And speaking of Michael Bloomberg…

Everytown for Gun Safety and Mom’s Demand Action are fully backed by Bloomberg minus what little funds they receive from their members. But that’s not all…

We have to remember that while he was Mayor of New York City, he placed a ban on the sale of soft-drinks (soda) over 16 ounces. Recently, he made a statement that higher taxes benefit the poor because they’ll live longer (the logic he states supporting this statement goes against human nature).

I’ve seen the “Bloomberg for President” ads. He has made a statement that he would gladly spend a BILLION DOLLARS to defeat Trump in the 2020 elections.

I can only think that this guy is on a power trip like no other, and there is no way in hell or heaven that he should be even be allowed to have any power. Nanny Bloomberg was used as a nickname during his stint as mayor, and it still fits – he wants to control YOU.


Switching gears…the clutch is worn so there is a little grinding going on… Millennials have no idea what a clutch is, so that just went over their heads…


The big stink about trans-kids competing in sports that do not match their biological gender is completely out of hand. It’s not fair that biological females who spend countless hours training for a sport are defeated by a biological male that identifies as female.

Here’s my take, and if you don’t like it, then tell me why…

The science is of genetics, male and female. Anyone who has attended a science biology class knows this (unless it’s one of the “progressive” schools, for which you have my sincerest condolences). XX (female) and XY (male) are the genetic markers for this distinction.

The qualifiers for sports or locker rooms should be genetic, not if the person “feels” that they are another sex. Biology trumps feelings. Period

Now for a side trip…

Feelings do not override the science of genetics, no matter what you think or say. And those politicians, administrators, and parents who do not understand this simple fact are, in fact, morons.

Yes, I understand that little Johnny thinks that he should be Jane, or Diane thinks she should be Don, and that you want to make everyone around them conform to your little angel’s whims. Grow the f*** up and be a parent. Get your child help – you’re the parent, not their friend.

The condition is called “Gender Dysphoria,” and was originally listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as a disorder that needed to be corrected for the person’s continued mental health. This was later changed to be a condition that would need treatment to accept the condition (including surgical procedures) due to political pressure from the LGBT community.

So find help for your child. The statistics for suicide among transgender is far above the national average for normal people due to their unresolved feelings. So if you love your kid, be the parent & make the hard choice, even if it makes you unpopular with your kid.


While we’re sorta on the subject of health care – let this sink in…

Democrat/Socialists voted to mandate government approved health care to every citizen of the United States (exempting themselves, of course). Anyone who did not sign up would be fined.

Democrat/Socialists also voted to give health care to illegal aliens for free.

So who are they really concerned with? The citizens of this country who elected them, or everyone else?


Politics was never meant to be a career choice, but a service the ordinary person would temporarily perform for the good of the country. Consider this quote from Thomas Sowell:

“Most of the founders of this country had day jobs for years. They were not career politicians…We need leaders with experience in the real world, not experience in the phony world of politics.”

This is why Donald Trump has been so effective in the past 3 years than the politicians have in the past 30+ years. It’s also why the career politicians hate him – Trump has exposed their sham.


If Donald Trump had not won the 2016 election, we would not have had confirmation of our suspicions that the political elites were not only corrupt, but the depth of their corruption.

Just look at the Biden’s ties to corruption in Ukraine, & that sham of a charity called the Clinton Foundation, and that should be all the proof you need for the political elites getting rich off the backs of the American people.


To whit (a quote from an undocumented source)…

The DNC is a self perpetuating machine of sorts. They create hideous situations then march in boldly blaming all others for their own failures.

The only solution, they proclaim, is to join them as they are the only ones that can save the day, save everyone and make everything a dreamy utopia.

There are enough ignorant, plenty of uneducated and loads of stupid people to allow this perpetuation to continue, as history clearly shows.

People leave the DNC plantation only to be replaced by others, currently the invading hordes.


In closing, just remember that the actions of the Democrat/Socialists have done since the 2016 election have been to overturn the election, thereby negating the Constitution and the will of the people. That has been their priority, not the citizens of the United States.

That should be enough for you never to vote for the Democrat/Socialist party ever again.

Christmas Eve 2019

Hello Everyone. It’s time for the Christmas Eve post, and quite frankly, I’m really not in the mood for it. I’ll explain.

First is the personal stuff.

This past October, my Father’s Alzheimer’s progressed to the point of where he needed to be placed in assisted living. Being the only child, it fell upon me to take care of all the arrangements, move him, and close out his condo. I’m still not done with all the paperwork, and won’t be until sometime next year.

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a bit mad at God for allowing such diseases to exist because they destroy not only the victim of the disease, but torture the loved ones with watching the victim slip away. I know God has a plan, but I just don’t see it with this disease.

Yeah, it’s real hard for me to get into the Christmas season this year…

Then there’s the political side of it.

The Founder’s expected our Representatives to be good, upstanding citizens with the unsavory element to be few and far between. Oaths of office were to keep them cognizant of their duties, responsibilities, and honor. Instead, we seem to have the Representatives owing allegiance to their political party and not to the people & country they swore to serve.

The House of Representatives voted along party lines for Articles of Impeachment against President Trump after two and a half years of the most sleaziest political witch-hunt in anyone’s memory. And then, the Articles (of which has yet to be sent to the Senate) do not list anything approaching the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” standard set out in the Constitution. “Abuse of Power” is more of an opinion since no crime that is against the laws of the United States has been listed or proved, and “Contempt of Congress” is something that is totally made up. I’ll let the legal eagles debate all of the previous.

I personally think that the Democrats (now Socialists) should be impeached under their own standards for Abuse of Power because I believe that they have totally overstepped their authority in this and other matters. They definitely are guilty of the charge of “Contempt of the United States Constitution and Citizens Thereof.”

The bright spot in the political crap is that President Trump is fulfilling the majority of his promises. The economy is up, the unemployment is down, and everyone seems to be doing better, even his detractors. The Democrats (now Socialists) have nothing except restating the policies that Obama put into action during his Presidency, and drove the country into the tank.

While I wasn’t sure about voting for him in 2016, I certainly didn’t want Felonia Von Pantsuit in that office. I will be voting for him in 2020, and any Republican that is up for election in my district. I, like a number of other people, have had it with giving the Democrats (now Socialists) any chance at obtaining political power. The past two and a half years should show anyone with a functioning brain and a smidgen of common sense that the Democrats (now Socialists) are about getting power over you, the American Citizen, and taking every right away from you.

Yes, I’ve been notorious for not bringing uplifting messages on Christmas Eve. So let’s continue on with a final thought…

Perhaps we should remember that Christ was born into this world for the sole purpose of being that perfect sacrifice upon the cross for all of mankind’s sins – past, present, and future. Perhaps we should remember that when all others fail or turn their backs on us, or even when we are mad at Him, God will still be there to love us. Perhaps that is the real message of Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Everyone.

An Afternoon In September

Here I am with an afternoon on my hands, and what do I do? Write a blog post, of course!!

Topics come and go, but the really important ones persist. For instance…

One topic that will never die is climate change. This past week, a 16-year old Swedish girl spoke before the United Nations accusing them of stealing her childhood due to their inaction on climate change by making the climate change issue a political issue instead of addressing the Earth-ending, mass-extinction event crisis that she says it really is. The worst offenders, China and India, were never mentioned during the tirade, but other countries (including the United States) were. While I’m not surprised at any of this continuing circus, here are a few thoughts…

As far as I’m concerned, the whole thing is a giant publicity stunt designed to thrust the issue of climate change back into the world’s spotlight. Much was made about this girl sailing across the ocean in a racing sailboat, but not a whole lot was mentioned about the crew jetting back to Europe, and the racing sailboat being shipped back on a container ship. Moreover, if anyone is to blame for stealing this girl’s childhood, it’s the people brainwashing her into near states of hysteria with the assertion of the world coming to an end due to people living normal lives in our civilization.

By reading the above, you probably think that I’m a knuckle-dragging throwback to the caveman days a couple of decades past the primordial ooze. Not so, says I! Consider the following:

When I was growing up in Indiana in the 1960s, I watched a science related TV show concerning the coming Ice Age (global cooling). I was probably around 5 or 6 at the time. Later that day, I looked out the back door of the house, and saw it was snowing…and it was mid-July!! Needless to say, I lost it, crying and looking around fearfully for the glacier that I was sure that was coming to engulf the house like a tidal wave. It took my Mother several minutes to calm me down.

So when I see the Climate Warming Cooling Change crowd trot out their next crying child intent upon shaming the world into bending to their way of thinking, I think back to that day 50+ years ago of where they terrified a young child. They haven’t changed – they have no reservations on using children to force the issue emotionally because that’s all they have. They’ve faked their data, and cannot win any other way.

And by the way, flying on private jets to Climate Change conferences doesn’t look good either…

Continuing on…

Have you ever noticed that as soon as there is a shooting with multiple people hurt or injured that doesn’t include a gun-control paradise like Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, or Baltimore, the bodies haven’t even cooled before anti-rights legislation is introduced by a certain party? It doesn’t matter if the legislation, if enacted, wouldn’t have prevented the tragedy. It’s the push to use the emotions of the tragedy to “do something” and make it appear that a certain party “cares” about the safety of the people instead of trying to control them.

Yes, I’m referring to the Democratic Party, which is now rapidly becoming the Democratic Socialist Party. Their platform is falling right in line with the precepts of Socialism, of which the common citizen has no rights having given those rights to the government. Don’t believe me? Think about it – the Democratic Socialists are advocating on the debate stage and in press releases the following:

  • Confiscation of wealth (Bernie’s “no Billionaires” statement and Warren’s proposed confiscation of 401K accounts are just part of raising everyone’s taxes)
  • “Free” healthcare and education (paid for by the raised taxes, and provided by “approved” providers in both fields)
  • Confiscation of firearms (every socialist and communist country has done this with millions killed by their governments because the people could not fight back.)
  • Government approved speech, religion, and business practices (think of hate crime laws & policies forcing religious-based businesses to provide services that goes against their stated beliefs (i.e., Masterpiece Bakery), and you get the idea. There is a movement to deny banking credit, loans, and credit-card processing to the firearms industry.)
  • Suspension of rights due to perceived harm or future actions (extreme protection orders, or red-flag laws bypass due process protections, and could be expanded to include almost any action, statement, or complaint)
  • Create a single-party government like California by allowing open borders, unverified voting by illegal aliens, and ballot box fraud (voter harvesting). Single-party governments such as Soviet Russia and Communist China killed millions of their own citizens for “non-conformance” to the party line & policies, and political opponents “disappeared” or were shipped off to “re-education camps” (something that one Presidential candidate has suggested). Venezuela is only the latest example that I can think of.

Yes, I believe that the Democratic Party is becoming the Democratic Socialist Party, which in reality, is the Anti-Rights Party.

Last for this post is the continuing temper-tantrum of the Democrats to find something, anything, to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. Trump has shown that the politicians in Washington are as inept as we suspected, and more corrupt than what we could have ever imagined.

First, it was Russia, now it’s Ukraine. I don’t anything will stick, and it will be a huge waste of time and tax-payer dollars.

Quite frankly, I think that the American People, by and large, are sick of the three-ring circus held by the clowns of the Democrats. I know I am.

We as citizens need to remember that these people work for us as Representatives, not as Royalty. It’s time that they are reminded of that.

I know that some of you reading this post do not like President Trump either for his actions, manners, or words. However, I believe that a non-politician like President Trump is the best chance we have for a government that will serve the people instead of the political elite. And yes, I admit that I held my nose when voting for him, but I realized that Hillary was infinitely worse. President Trump has worked out better than I had hoped.

So hold your nose, Vote Republican in the 2020 elections. I cannot vote for a party for which it’s candidates promote ideas and policies that undermine this country’s founding principles and citizens.
