What A Powerful Graphic!

November 16, 2017

Wow, what a powerful graphic. I just saw this on Twitter:

All the states in blue have a smaller population than Los Angeles County. Remember this next time someone says we don’t need the electoral college!

Remember Hillary won the popular vote solely due to the votes in California and New York.

This Is What The Diversity Visa Program Has Brought US

November 14, 2017

Two people stabbed in Mall of America just last Sunday. Was this a terrorist attack?

Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman

No probably not, just your everyday lawlessness perpetrated on Americans by illiterates from war-torn areas who basically get by robbing & stealing. The perpetrator, a refugee from Somalia, identified as  20-yr old Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, apparently was stealing someone’s belongings from a dressing room in a Macy’s Store. In the altercation that followed he ended up stabbing 2 people before being apprehended. You always take a knife with you when you go shopping, right?

Were you able to find any Americans in this video? Somalis have taken over Minneapolis aided & abetted by the State Department and the liberals in Congress who think it’s perfectly ok to dilute our country with people from all over the world who will never assimilate and think it’s okay to rob & kill others for Allah or just to get what they want. That’s what they did in Somali and they don’t know any different. Remember the Somali pirates hijacking container ships off their coast, and Black Hawk Down?  I think I’d skip Christmas shopping if I had to do it anywhere in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis has turned into a not very nice place. It’s been overpopulated by refugee Somalis brought in on the Diversity Visa Program. Under that program 50,000 immigrants every year are brought in with the goal of diversifying the United States’ immigrant population. It’s a blind lottery. They are not selected for the positive attributes they may bring with them to help America; no special education or professional status is required, they just have to be able to fog a mirror. Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan that killed eight people in NY recently came in under this Diversity Visa program in 2010 (along with 23 of his relatives!) from Uzbekistan.

I think the United States is diverse enough, thank you very much. Let’s call a halt to importing terrorists and trouble makers like the examples in this story.

“It Ain’t That Big A Deal.” – May In Fact Turn Out To Be Ten Years In A Chinese Prison

November 12, 2017

Three (privileged, I might add) freshmen from the UCLA basketball team have found themselves left behind in Hangzhou, China while the rest of the team boarded a plane to fly back to California yesterday.

 UCLA’s Basketball brats

Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley were forced to remain at the team hotel, the Hyatt Regency in Hangzhou and their season-opening victory over Georgia Tech is likely today the last thing on their mind despite the off-hand remark made by LaVar Ball, LiAngelo’s father that,

“It ain’t that big a deal.”

Chow time in a Chinese prison

And this should tell you all you need to know as to how these kids ~they are still teenagers, got into this fix. They’re spoiled, privileged, pampered and their own parents believe and have taught them that they are special and can pretty much do what they want. Maybe we should label it the Kaepernick syndrome. Newsweek Magazine years ago explained why athletes aren’t roll  models. They summed it up this way:

“Spoiled-athlete syndrome begins early in sports socialization. From the time they could be picked out of a lineup because of their exceptional athletic ability, they’ve been pampered and catered to by coaches, classmates, teammates, family members and partners. They learn they aren’t accountable for their behaviors off the field and they’re used to people looking the other way.”

I’m pretty sure none of these kids needed to steal sunglasses from the Louis Vuitton store in the high-end store that caught them on surveillance video (at 3 different stores, btw) shoplifting.

They are darn lucky to be out on bail as this is rarely something afforded to Chinese citizens in this situation. Maybe that had something to do with the fact that President Trump & the FLOTUS were in China when it took place and Trump & PRC President, Xi Jinping seem to have hit it off very nicely, but the prison sentence for this little caper could be as much as ten years. Oh, and the conviction rates for theft in China reach 99.2%. This is a big deal pops!

Let Us Reminisce For One Glorious Moment – Election Night 1 Year Ago

November 9, 2017

A year ago yesterday I fondly remember the better part of the evening, once it looked like a possible Trump victory anyway, texting my sister-in-law and a longtime friend back and forth, over and over as the election results trickled in. And they’re both on the East Coast so it was late for them! “Hey he just won Florida and he’s ahead in  Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania!” Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada and Utah for a long time were too close to call, but one by one states never expected to go Red fell to Trump and the electoral votes (sorry CA & NY we don’t elect our presidents by popular vote!) continued to climb for Trump. The national electoral map of the 2016 election is a beauty to behold.

The red states are the ones Donald Trump won. Thirty in all. It wasn’t even close. But they just can’t shut-up about the popular vote. Keep in mind it only took the popular votes in California & New York for (lock-her-up!) Hillary to win the popular vote which is exactly why we do not elect presidents by a popular vote. There would be no point in Rhode Island, Hawaii, Wyoming, etc., to go to the polls. Under the popular vote they don’t have enough population for their votes to count and somehow the Founders figured that out 230 some years ago! We are a Constitutional Republic (govt by representation), not a Democracy (majority rule).

Let’s review the reaction from the newsrooms election night for some more fun. This the first time BTW, I have ever agreed with Chris Matthews.

And here is some more recorded history of the left losing it on election night 2016.

Oh it was fun wasn’t it?

Watch This Video ~Then Help It Go Viral By Passing It On

November 5, 2017

Convention of States is a way in the Constitution to actually rein in the federal government. Most people don’t know but the Founders on the very last day of the Constitutional Convention added a second way to amend the Constitution, and by a unanimous vote! This 2nd manner of amending the Constitution is left up to the various State Legislatures. Congress has nothing to do with it. It’s never been done before, but now is the time!

Please watch this video to understand how it works, then pass it on to everyone on your lists. Make this video go viral! We need a groundswell of grassroots support to make this work. Twelve states have already passed it:  Georgia, Alaska, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, North Dakota, Texas and Missouri. Find your states’s website and get involved!

Go to Convention of States, sign the petition and get on board!

Well, Well What Do You Know? Other Nations Ignoring Paris Climate Goals on The QT

October 29, 2017

President Trump demonstrated his leadership a few months ago by bucking the entire world when he abandoned the phony Paris Agreement. But interestingly enough according to Lawrence Solomon of Energy Probe, a Toronto-based environmental organization, it now seems Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (you know, the kook paid $8 Million to a terrorist who killed an American soldier),

Justin Trudeau 2 yrs before he was elected Prime Minister

is one of the only signers of the Paris agreement who is actually abiding by the exacting demands of the accord. Most signatories are abandoning the Paris Accord undoubtedly “because voters in large part put no stock in scary global warming scenarios”.

Australia is the latest to abandon the folly. Initially the government there blindly accepted proponents’ claim that renewables had become competitive in the free market and went on a renewables building binge and since have suffered a series of six major blackouts including one this past September that blacked out the entire state (a state 40-per-cent larger than Texas)!

You see surprise, surprise wind & solar only produce if and when the wind blows and the sun shines! After all the photos ops and the preening by the libs, politicians must get back to the business of meeting the real needs of their citizens—which all depend on the availability of affordable energy.

National elections in Austria resulted in conservative parties coming in 1st and 2nd making it likely they will form a pro-carbon coalition government, and a blow was delivered to Germany’s climate policy when a leak revealed the environmental ministry was hopelessly behind in meeting carbon reduction targets.

Aside from the whack-o, lefty lib-progs, people have a deep revulsion at top-down governments laden with jet-setting politicians & pathetic celebrities jet-setting to posh locations preaching restraint to the masses.

Is This What We Have To Look Forward To?

October 19, 2017

Here’s what’s going down in the UK. The British National Health Service (NHS) to save money in their single payer system is temporarily banning surgeries on people who smoke and those who are obese.  Patients who smoke must quit for at least eight weeks before non-urgent surgery, and obese people must lose weight before the NHS gives the go-ahead. Don’t worry it’s on temporary -they’ll have more money later -yeah right!

Hey if this catches on here, it means Michael Moore will have to go to his favorite health care mecca (Cuba) the next time he needs surgery. It may be worth it!

This is a brilliant idea! It’s low hanging fruit. Just think how many smokers and fat people there are. Trust me, I recently got back from the Mid-west. Nearly everyone is F-A-T!

The Dims all want single payer. Single payer is what the Brits have. But fortunately there are still some (not a lot, but enough) Republicans who won’t openly declare that they are socialists, so it hasn’t happened yet.

But Trump is making it easier for the Dims. Last Thursday said he was ending the illegal, unconstitutional funding to insurance companies. A federal judge had long ago declared those payments ($7 billion a year!) illegal, So yea! Trump was upholding the law.

Then as usual the whining from the libs started. “Trump is deliberately sabotaging Obamacare.” Well yes, that’s what he promised to do to help it die since it is not doing what it was supposed to do at the price promised and was, once again –> illegal, unconstitutional. The sooner it dies, the sooner all parties come together with a better, hopefully market based, patient-centered plan.

But less than a week later Trump has caved and made a deal with the devil; the Democrats. They agreed to extend the illegal, unconstitutional payments to insurance companies for 2 more years. Sometimes the guy just has no spine! This 2 year extension will renewed and renewed until the Dims get power again. And when they do they’ll pass single payer health care.

This rationing & delaying of treatment is a feature of total government control of a country’s health care system.  Decisions are made by bean-counting bureaucrats who don’t really care about patients or their families.
