Random Thoughts

Friends, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life, as usual, conspires to keep me from writing as often as I would like. So here are a few thoughts of mine in no particular order.

First and foremost – BUILD THE DAMN WALL ALREADY!!  I’ve seen enough reports from crimes committed by illegal immigrants upon the American population.  Sanctuary cities do nothing but sheild criminals and increase crime (including robbery, rape, and murder).  Anyone who thinks otherwise is complicit in these crimes.

The Muller investigation needs to stop, or at least be redirected toward the truly guilty parties. After a year plus of investigation, no collusion has been found concerning the Trump campaign. But there has been a boatload on the Democrat’s side of the house. And besides, is collusion really a crime, or is it a made up one? Or has this really been a show of political Kabuki theater to smear President Trump? I think we know the answer to that…

The American People do want justice, not the current “get Trump” atmosphere. We will not have confidence in our government until the true criminals and traitors to this country are brought to court. The list that I have is way too long for this post.

The all inclusive Liberals want you to believe that all opinions and viewpoints are welcome, at least if they somewhat agree to the Liberal viewpoint. Stating a Conservative viewpoint has lead to ostracization and even violence. We’ve seen many videos and reports of Liberal intolerance. One of these days, someone will get killed, and then all hell will break loose.

I think of Antifa, and what these masked people are doing. While they state they are anti-Fascist, they certainly employ the same violent tactics as the Nazi Brownshirts or Mussolini’s Blackshirts. What they are doing is in direct opposition of changing this country through the legal channels of debate and elections. Again, one of these days, someone will be killed directly through their actions, and I do wonder if this organization will be held accountable for their actions. I certainly hope that mayors and police chiefs around the country crack down and arrest these people for assault and property damage with fines & jail terms before they get completely out of hand.

The rise of the Socialists in the Democrat Party is of concern to me. Socialism is the direct opposite of the principles that this country is founded upon. It will destroy this country if not stopped. What the Democrats are doing is completely insane.

I was listening to a radio show on my way home from work the other day, and the commentator asked the question, “Why are young, college-age people embracing Socialism? Don’t they know what it is?”

A college counselor called in to the show, with her class present, and asked the question of her class. The answer was stunning and disturbing

The reason that they gave was that Socialism sounded a lot like Social, or Society, and they have been taught that we all need to be more social and respectful of each other. That a movement or system of government would be more encompassing (by name only) instead of the harsher sounding Capitalism (where everyone supposedly screws over everyone else) is very appealing. They didn’t know the details of what Socialism was, but the concept of free education, free health care, and guaranteed jobs (income) was very high on their list. Of course, they had no idea how all the “free” stuff was going to be paid for…

This is what our public education system is turning out. Young adults who have no idea of the history & evolution of the different political systems are, and what the consequences of adopting these systems will eventually result in. Critical thinking and civics has been canned in favor of touchy/feeling crap. No wonder those who can afford it will send their kids to private schools instead of the Liberal Youth Indoctrination Centers that our schools have become.

One last thing on the subject of Socialism before moving on: It seems that most of the people supporting Socialism are thinking that they will be running it, or benefiting from it without much effort on their part. I haven’t heard a single person stating that they would be happy to work for the benefit of others (a la Boxer from “Animal Farm”).

With the midterm elections coming up, I’m looking at the current candidates for the offices at the local, state, and federal positions. I’m what you can describe as a single issue voter. My main issue that I look for in a politician is if they truly support the Second Amendment. Here’s why:

If a politician supports the Second Amendment, they normally support the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and a government run by Constitutional principles. They will also have a respect for life (pro-life), legal immigration, and the rule of law. By respecting and supporting the Second Amendment, it provides a foundation on what that politician’s value system is, and is an indicator if he/she will represent the voters in government, or himself. At least that’s my thinking…

That’s all for this post. May everyone be safe and well until the next time.

4th of July

Post below the Constitution.

constitution-1486010_1280

Happy 4th of July, Everyone!

We should pause at this time and give thanks for the Founders, who by signing the Declaration of Independence, were signing their own death warrants as it was treason against the Crown.  Six years later, the Constitution was signed, and this country was born.

In the years that followed, wars both domestic and abroad challenged this country’s leadership and place in the world.  And we must never forget that the struggle is constant.

Today, we face political war from a Party that states that is it for the United States and its citizens, but place the rights of lawbreakers above that of the citizenry, and attempt to enact policies and laws that would eventually doom this country.  Deception and violence are its methods, and even that is becoming obvious.  They are so emboldened with themselves and delusional, they are actually telling us what they are doing.  Anyone with half a brain should see that the Democrats have absolutely gone over the edge to the Dark side.

I am pleased to see that some Liberals and Democrats are walking away from the Democratic Party.  Look up the hashtag #WalkAway on Twitter, and you will see a growing list of people that are fed up with the Democratic Party.

Part of this credit should go to President Trump, who by merely being elected, exposed the true purpose of the Democrats – the acquisition of power over the People of the United States.  When their corrupt gal-pal failed to be elected, they began melting down into gibbering messes.  The Liberals and far left wing(nuts) have thrown (and continue to throw) a temper tantrum of truly epic proportions, and in doing so, have exposed their true agenda – which is not to be servants of the people, but to be the masters.

Mad Maxine, Petulant Pelosi, and Slimy Schumer are all making statements that attempt to discredit one of the most effective Presidents (in my opinion, at least) in fulfilling his campaign promises of a stronger, working America.  Which is, again in my opinion, is a damn sight better than any career politician has done in my memory.  Perhaps that is why they are resorting to threats and calls for protests/violence to distract from President Trump’s successes.

If Americans truly wake up and see what these clowns are doing with their surrogates in the co-conspiring media, the Democrats are toast.  But it won’t be fast, and I hate to say, I doubt it’s going to be civil or bloodless.

Regardless, relax this holiday, for tomorrow, the fight for America continues.

Memorial Day 2018

In tribute to our Veteran’s and the sacrifices they have made, we present the poem “In Flanders Fields”

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army
