What the left can screw up for the rest of us

October 8, 2018

Columbus Day celebrating the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492 has been tossed to the dustbin of history. We can no longer celebrate Columbus Day, it’s now Indigenous Peoples Day because of Columbus’s enslavement and exploitation of native people. According to the Washington Post, Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1934. But numerous cities and states have ditched celebrating it since 1992, when Berkeley, Calif. (where else??), became the first city to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day in favor of recognizing Native Americans.

Of course evil never rests. The left has just spent the last few weeks demonizing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family and friends because of their obsession that Roe v Wade would be surely be overturned if we got another conservative on the highest court.

When that didn’t work and it looked like he was going to get confirmed they went for the jugular in the form of false sexual allegations. Trouble is they piled on and each allegation designed to create more doubt just pissed people off more. They didn’t win the battle but they managed to sully the entire nomination process, the Senate and themselves in the process. The latter is the only good thing about it. They may have kicked the beehive of otherwise Republican mid-term apathy that will come back to bite them. And I hope it does!

So what else can they wreck? Unfortunately there is no end to this madness.

This is what it’s come to folks.

September 24, 2018

Our culture, our decency, the mere thought of hearing an opposing opinion it’s all dead. Gone and destroyed by the progressive left.

Protestors in the Hart Senate Building

They want to protect abortion so badly they will stoop to any level and they have. And who really believes Brett Kavanaugh is gonna jump right in there and overturn Roe v Wade? I’ll be the first to say it was a bad ruling in from the get-go (should have been left to the States per the 10th Amendment!), but that’s not how the courts work and they’ll never overturn it. It ain’t gonna happen.

They are willing to burn down all of our sacred institutions (public education, family, Christianity, marriage, free speech, religious freedom and on and on) to get their way. I’m not sure what it is they want, but they’re well on their way to destroying another American institution.

Once the 2nd accuser floated to the surface like the turd she is, the Senate Judiciary Chair, Chuck Grassley, should have got a clue. This is an orchestrated attack to keep control of the Supreme Court so they can keep right on nationalizing social issues. And isn’t it too bad the Republicans don’t have a spine nor a single pair of nads in the entire group?

And if any of you have young boys you better start schooling them for the future. This is gonna be the playbook strategy for defeating any male opposition at any level for any reason. They want us all to become dykes and don our pussy hats whenever we don’t get our way. Sorry, I’m not gonna do it. Oh and BTW it’s all about destroying this presidency. Everything from the NY Times, Washington Post, the media or the left in general must be seen through that lens. Trump wasn’t supposed to get elected so their #! goal is to destroy him.

If this keeps up Trump could be the last democratically elected president. Hat-tip Armstrong Economics. From here on out, it could be more what Joseph Stalin boasted – elections are not decided by the votes, but who counts the votes.

Bad Governance Based on Good Intentions

May 23, 2018

You cannot get any more leftist, Dimocratic (not a typo!), progressive or re-distributive than Seattle, Washington, but this is really over the top. Hat-tip the Daily Wire from an article titled “How To Destroy a Major City”. Amazon, Microsoft and Starbucks will soon be paying yet another punitive tax – a “head tax” a for every employee ($275) charged to major companies to combat homelessness. Talk about driving businesses away, what are they thinking? Amazon is now rethinking their plans for expansion into new areas. The City Council can’t get enough of citizens’ money to give to someone else. First it was the $15 minimum wage law and though the reported effects are mixed depending on who did the study, most restaurant owners admitted they did have to raise menu prices and add a service fees in order to keep hiring levels the same. Now Seattle is looking at another huge property tax increases after a 17% bump in 2017.

Meanwhile Seattle has spent billions on useless light rail that not enough commuters will ever use. By the way, the light in light rail refers to the very common low ridership. It’s great for shipping freight, but not people. Costs continue to exceed estimates and ridership nearly always underperforms. According The Hill,Trump’s preliminary budget in 2017 calls for eliminating all federal funding to Amtrak’s national network and $499 million in cuts from the TIGER grant program, which also funds passenger rail. On the other hand, those who support government rail claim to be about progress – yet in the case of passenger rail – they want the government to force taxpayers to subsidize an 18th century technology that more than 95 percent of motorists don’t want or use.

But back to the liberal destruction of major cities. They also waste money on such things as bike lanes and rental bike programs that continually fail. Free (no such thing!) preschool is never far from their lips and free community college tuition to high school graduates is another feel-good favorite. This folks is how you destroy a major city. 48% of Americans in a recent poll were in favor of a guaranteed minimum wage. They point to Finland, but what they don’t say is that Finland has scrapped the idea after 2 years. This will destroy our country. If you think socialism is a good idea please get the hell out and go to Cuba or Venezuela where they have lots of good ideas like this.

ISIS Was Involved in Las Vegas Massacre!

April 6, 2018

I’m sure many of you are just a confused by the seeming lack of motive in the biggest mass murder in US history (not counting Sept. 11, 2001, of course) as I am. Lack of motive on the part of Stephen Paddock, a big lack of information from the FBI & the Las Vegas Police Dept., and time lines changed multiple times. Why? To protect Islam? What are they hiding & why? I still don’t know, but this story from Laura Loomer, Citizen Journalist is very interesting:

Several members of Congress have recently (this week!) been briefed regarding ISIS’ ties to the Las Vegas shooting. ISIS did claim responsibility soon after the massacre and there are very few cases where this did not turn out to be true. The ISIS connection is further reinforced by the fact that ISIS released a video last year that specifically named Las Vegas as one of their targets for domestic terrorism.

Why does law enforcement and particularly the FBI, keep this stuff from us? And what happened to the hard drive in the shooter’s laptop? Never found. #BuildTheWall!

That’s right, it’s the ISIS flag Stephen Paddock is standing in front of.

Communist Manifesto or The Democratic Party Platform?

January 11, 2018

Hat-tip The Blaze. It’s so good I just couldn’t pass it up. It reconfirms what I’ve written about before, but hey I don’t need convincing it’s them that need to get a clue.

Remember at the 2016 Democratic Convention when it took lots of criticism and bad press -and 2 days before they finally decided to adorn the stage with American flags? The top photo below is the Republican Party stage at their convention, the lower is the disgraceful showing by the Democratic Party.

How about when they took God out of the party platform? That was in 2012. According to the Washington Post, God is mentioned 12 times in the 2012 GOP platform. The 2008 Democratic platform made one reference to God: the “God-given potential” of working people. But in 2012 the Democrats took any mention of God or Jerusalem out of the Party Platform. Today’s Democrats think religious freedom is teaching Islam in the public schools.

What can I say, this is the Democratic Party of today. Commie Marxists and socialists pretty much all of them. Don’t forget Bernie Sanders who openly identifies as a “Socialist Democrat” and not a member of the Democratic Party, almost beat Killary for the party nomination in 2016.

I’m Not Tired Of This, How About You?

December 21, 2017

I’m solidly in the #MeToo camp. No, not joining the voices complaining of sexual assault but rather the growing number of people cheering on Trump. And hell no, I’m not tired of winning and it’s killing the Democrats!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you can go back to the days when I doubted Trump was anything but a blow heart, and certainly not a conservative. Here is another example. But in less than a year he has proven me wrong.

After the GOP totally blew the Obamacare repeal I was sure that tax reform would never happen and I was a skeptic believing that they were not going to give enough relief to the middle class, but now after the reform bill passed both houses of Congress but before Trump has even signed the bill numerous companies have already come out and proven that it will greatly improve the economy.

Keep in mind the left has demonized the tax reform bill so much that it only had 26% approval in the polls. You know, “it’s going to kill people, it’s a huge tax break for the rich, it’s not fair to poor and middle class people” etc., etc. The Dims (not a typo!) have succeeded in convincing people that corporations are evil, ditto capitalism, but early evidence and reaction by big corporations is already proving that false (hat-tip American Thinker):

Within hours of the tax cut passing:

AT&T is giving its hourly employees (mostly unions) a $1,000 year-end bonus and is boosting capital spending by $1 billion in the U.S. in 2018.

Wells Fargo said it is raising minimum wages to $15 per hour.

Fifth Third Bank is giving year-end bonuses to the 13,500 employees that are not senior executives and is raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Boeing said it is putting an additional $300 billion into charitable and employee-related expenses as a result of the tax changes.

Comcast is giving $1,000 bonuses to 100,000 non-executive employees and is upping capital spending, which will trickle through the economy.

Boy, these corporations are evil!
