UNITERS or DIVIDERS?


Can anyone in politics today be called a Uniter?  Is everyone in politics today a Divider?  I am painfully serious and that is deeply troubling to me.  I love America!  I love people and desperately want America to excel, be restored to a Limited Government where We the People are truly governed by consent, not coercion.  Can we attain that lofty perch?  In this, I refuse to be less than optimistic even in the face of the incredible division and seeming impasse ideologically in today’s modern political world.  Am I dreaming and clinging to a ‘pie in the sky’ wish?  Possibly but if I don’t shoot for the moon will never hit higher than the street light. 

I talk to Democrats frequently and after they give me their standard rhetoric, diatribe, and rants about the evil orange man, Donald J. Trump I get to ask questions.  Sometimes, my questions send them into a rage and the tirade that ensues makes discussion impossible.  But there are times when they actually hear my question, give it some thought, and respond.  It is those times that give me hope.

I am 100% convinced that unless and until we actually listen to each other and discuss matters with some semblance of rationality and honesty we will never achieve my desired objective for America.  I am equally convinced that if we do, we can achieve far more than any of us might think possible.  Both sides, view the other side as irreconcilably deluded and frequently ‘the enemy.’  If that is our position and attitude, then resolution and restoration is an Impossible Dream and a Utopian Fantasy. 

We have endured over three years of a 24/7 barrage of attacks, attempts to overturn the 2016 election and the intentional dividing of the nation.  Those of us who did not support Hillary Clinton and voted for Donald J. Trump have been branded ‘deplorable’.  We have been called every name under the sun, mostly unfairly.  We have a nation of approximately 330 million people.  This nation is the size of the continent of Europe.  Can anyone unite this nation?

If the Democrats and those following their current brand of liberalism regain power can they govern?  The same cabal that has maligned, marginalized, and physically assaulted 63 million people calling us racist, bigots, idiots, homophobes, white supremacist, fascist, and other names would be tasked with that responsibility. 

How would they treat those of us who opposed and oppose their brand and style of governance?  Would they attempt to ignore us and hope we fade into the shadows and disappear?  That won’t happen, we will not!  Would those in power succumb to their rabid base and demand that everyone is forced into compliance with their toxic agenda?  Would that not foment serious confrontations and have the incredible potential for violence? 

Over the past decade or so, about 154 million fundamentalists, evangelical, or Catholic Christians have been maligned, mocked, pilloried and vilified for our beliefs.  Our religious liberties have been under assault and in danger of governmental usurpation and regulation.  What can that segment of society expect when the Left pressed to force acceptance of unconditional abortion, infanticide, and seek to suspend our Christian liberties and force us to comply with their positions and conditions?

I have zero doubt that if the Left regains control of the Government that includes the White House, the House, the Senate, and the Courts the litigation, administrative edicts, and intimidation will escalate.  Their base demands it and the political prostitutes always gravitate to abuse of power attempting to maintain control and dominance. 

Have you taken the time to truly reflect on the reality that in a nation of 330 million there will always be evil?  There will always be the demonic, the deranged, the devious, and evil people who will commit mass murders and other atrocities.  That is not going away with legislation. 

The passage of ‘open-ended’ red flag laws is a move in the wrong direction.  I know it sounds like a sensible and compassionate thing to do.  I know it is politically expedient and will gain votes in certain sectors, but it is the wrong move.  Why?  Because the same people who abuse social media will abuse the reporting of potential dangers and violations.  Those in law enforcement and politics who have a larger end-game will abuse the new laws and we will be no safer but will lose more of our individual liberties and rights. 

The move is on today to strip citizens of their constitutional and inalienable right of ‘self-defense’ embodied in the 2nd Amendment and in the 1st Amendment.  The 2nd Amendment was not about guns but about people and our right of defense.  That must be guarded and protected against the nefarious power-crazed political prostitutes of today. 

Can the Democrats following the toxicity of liberal thought and globalism expect to govern and deal with upwards of 70% of Americans who own and want to keep their firearms?  The Leftists are proposing an increase in entitlement programs that would increase the need for revenue from tax-payers by over 200%.  Is that a good plan?  They insist they will not touch Social Security or Medicare so the only other pathway for them is tax, tax, tax, tax, and tax some more! 

The IRS has issued an analysis displaying the reality that the average income tax would have to increase by at least 80% on the top 10% to cover their proposals.  Some would say, “Fantastic, the rich will pay their fair share!”  But it doesn’t stop there.  The next 40% of taxpayers would see an increased rate of 65% and the bottom 50% would incur a 40% tax rate.  Is that still fantastic in your mind? 

That would cause a revolution of non-filers and make multiplied thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens criminals because they’d hide their money trying to survive.  Add to that equation the 11-30 million illegals now, here and the additional ones that would come with open borders and you have an open invitation to anarchy and the total destruction of our Republic. 

The Left is good at sowing confusion, misinformation and as Uncle Joe Biden said, “We choose our Truth over Facts.”  I think he said, “truth over facts” but facts support truth rather than being something other than the truth.  If we allow those following the toxicity of liberalism as embodied in today’s Democratic Party to reclaim the controls of government, we will have effectively destroyed the Republic.  It is your choice.  I’ve made mine, and I choose Liberty and the Republic, Faith, Family, and Freedom not the chains being proposed by the Left and the Democrats. 

God bless you and God bless America!

ONWARD TO THE PAST, AMERICA…


That should be the motto of the Democrats running for office in 2020 because it is their mantra and what they are proposing.  I am stunned that millions of Americans, many whom I think are reasonably intelligent but terribly misguided are buying into their proposals.  I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night, and I am convinced that my 2nd Grade Grandchildren would know their policies are not good business.  If not them, then my 6th Grader would assuredly know the difference between progression and regression.  Yet, millions of those following the toxicity of liberalism seem to be devoid of the cognitive acuity to deduce that reality.

Among the proposals of the Democratic hopefuls is the brazen plan of Joe Biden who has pledged and voted to eliminate all of President Trump’s tax cuts.  Wow!  How many people applaud that?  Only those not paying any taxes now and living on the government dole, I suspect.  Joe did not take the position of his fellow Democrats who promise to eliminate some of the cuts he said, ALL OF THEM!  He then said, “…you think I’m joking, but I’m not.  If you know anything about me and taxes.” 

Hey, Joe, yes, I know about you and the Democrats regarding taxes.  You never met a tax increase you didn’t like.  You promise to use the taxes to pay for entitlements and scream about the cost of the cuts.  The truth of the matter is, tax cuts add more revenue rather than reducing it.  You know it, economist know it, and hopefully, the American people will come to realize it.

You did promise to take us back to the Obama policies and economic conditions.  I would hope no rational American would support that proposal.  You want to take us back to a condition of stagnation and want us to believe what your former boss claimed that the new normal was low growth.  You want us to believe that jobs that left under Obama would never return.  Those same jobs that have come back in manufacturing and other areas under Trump.  Thanks, but no thanks!  I like where we are and where we are heading and do not want to go back into financial darkness.

When you examine the facts and even consider the fact that liberal outlets such as the Washington Post have debunked Biden’s claims of how the taxes affected people, you must wonder what he is smoking.  The Conservative-leaning Americans for Tax reform has reported that a single parent taking care of one child with an annual income of $41,000 received a tax cut of more than $1,300.  Households in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan received tax cuts of about $1,400 on average. 

Biden suggested that there were loopholes in the tax code amounting to approximately $1.6 trillion.  He could not specify where they were and exactly who receives them but his magic math and tax, tax, tax, will allow him to spend, spend, spend, and it will all be easily done and free for everyone!  Yeah, and I have some pristine oceanfront property in the middle of the Arizona desert I’d love to sell cheaply too. 

The Washington Post reported that the average American family earning between $50,000 and $75,000 annually received a tax cut of about $1,000.  How can anyone with half a brain not see the fallacy and failure of the Democrat Economic Plans? 

When you add to the mix the Democrat’s proposals regarding Open Borders, Gun Control, Medicare For All, Free This and Free That, you see the dilemma the non-thinking voting public is in.  Open Borders is dangerous for Americans and damages the job market for many people.  It increases the fiscal burden and thereby overloads our healthcare system, educational system, and law enforcement.  It is a non-American idea that the Left insists is humanitarian and compassionate. 

Elizabeth Warren has gone further into the looney bin with her ‘Gun Control’ proposals.  She wants a new ‘federal assault weapons ban’ that people willing to break the law will ignore.  She proposed increasing the tax on firearms (30%) and on ammunition (50%) that won’t deter any crime of violence but will make us law-abiding Americans give the government more money to defend ourselves.  A ban on ‘high capacity ammunition magazines’ that won’t do one thing to deter criminals from killing people and prevent the law-abiding from defending themselves against those criminals with high capacity magazines.  She wants to extend the waiting periods for obtaining a firearm.  That will have zero effect on criminals. 

Her plan extends the right and purview to Congress to determine and stipulate what “high capacity” is.  Congress, she said, “Would decide what the reasonable limits are on the lethality of weapons.”  What?  Any weapon is lethal if it hits someone in the right or wrong place.  She also wants to target Gun Manufacturers, which is nothing short of a push for Gun Confiscation and the Total Elimination of Firearms.  They also want a “federal licensing system” but oppose voter identification.  Amazing isn’t it? 

The Democrats appear willing to violate the Constitution, strip us of our Constitutional and Inalienable Rights but not protect us against Leftists Voter Fraud.  In any of the mass shootings, someone explain how any of her proposals or the proposals by the Democrats have prevented any of them?  In my mind, they are pushing and searching for ways to impede our liberties recognized by the Constitution.  I have to ask, “How many innocent people will be victimized by adherence to the law when criminals ignore it?”  Hey, Democrats, no Hey, Americans, when will we wake up and say, NO MORE!  No more to the Leftists attempt to violate our Constitutional Rights and strip us of our Liberties!  NO MORE!  That’s why I’m voting No on the Democrats in 2020.

God bless you and God bless America!

IS EVERYTHING RACIST?


Based on what I hear in today’s rhetoric, especially by those following the toxicity of the liberal manifesto of today’s Democratic Party, Yes!  Yes, if you are white.  Yes, if you are a conservative.  Yes, if you are a Trump supporter.  Yes, if you are a Republican.  Yes, if you are a Constitutionalist.  Yes, if you support traditional marriage between one man and one woman.  Yes, if you are Pro-Life.  Yes, if you want to keep America the Constitutional Republic and not allow her to morph into a Socialist nation. 

The charge of Racist and Racism today, has little to do with ideological views regarding races but has more to do with political disagreement and violating the PC Police edicts, it would seem.  That is a dramatic change since I was a teenager in the ’60s.  Is there racism in America?  Do wild bears live in the woods?  Of course, there is, but it is not one-sided and lodged in one ethnicity, skin color, race, or nationality.  Racism knows no bounds and is not limited to a skin-color or ethnicity.  It is found in all races, ethnicities, and nationalities.  Disagree if you please, but I stand by that assertion.

I can say, without fear of being proven wrong, that virtually everyone who isn’t “of color” or isn’t irredeemably brainwashed by our educational system, Hollywood, and political activism is fed up with being called a racist.  I try to treat all people, regardless of ethnicity, with fairness and respect.  Some people force me to disrespect them. That is based on their behavior, agenda, ideological positions and engaging in the diabolical pursuits that are becoming more prevalent in today’s world. Evil is evil regardless of skin-color or ethnicity.  Racism is racism regardless of genealogical heritage or ethnicity. 

I grew up being taught that “Racism” was when one judged another based on their skin color.  My parents taught me to treat people with respect and with no regard for their ethnicity long before, Martin Luther King, Jr. issued his proclamation. King said, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.”  I was taught that you never “judge a book by its cover but by its content.”  That is a principle I have embraced most of my life and embrace today. 

There has long been the argument of various groups of people that not all people are alike genetically.  That is true, to a degree but not a justification for racism or prejudice.  Some, in the scientific and ideological communities, tell us that not all are the same genetically in intelligence, temperament, physical ability, or virtually any other characteristic.  That view, is not, in and of itself racist or blatantly false but can produce racism and fallacy. 

I believe that it is imperative, in a civil society, that we attempt to always judge people by the content of their character not the color of their skin. We should judge them by their merits.  I had a non-white professor tell me, “most Watusis are much taller than most Asians.”  He continued and said, “most Norwegians are more likely to have blue eyes than Venezuelans.”  His meaning was that these are ‘superficial’ characteristics and have nothing to do with character. 

In today’s political climate if you criticize a non-white person you are immediately deemed a racist.  Is that fair?  Hardly, and if we are honest, we would acknowledge that that charge is more racists than the criticism.  If I criticize your politics and policies and you are of a different ethnicity than I, I am not engaging in racism but opinion.  If a black shooter kills multiple policemen, I want him to be regarded with the same disgust as a white shooter killing people.  Murder and evil are murder and evil regardless of the color of the perpetrator’s skin.

If White Supremacy is bad and it is, then non-white supremacy is equally bad.  There are some real racists in our world and in America.  They look no deeper than the color of the skin and would be willing to eradicate that segment of society with no remorse.  I have heard the vitriol from whites, blacks, Hispanics, and others and it makes my skin crawl and my blood boil.  That is not what we need and not what we should be willing to tolerate in a civil society. 

I was told that “only whites can be racist” and I resisted that assertion then and now.  That is an invitation to barbarianism of the worst kind and engenders racism from all sectors.  The lopsided leftists’ formula that a person of color cannot be racist is ludicrous and everyone should know better.  The Left insists that when a non-white commits an act of racism it is not racism but justifiable outrage over their ill-treatment or the ill-treatment of their ethnicity sometime in the past.  That is Ridiculous!  No, I am not saying that some were not ill-treated but to make that a justification is both ridiculous and dangerous.

If we adopt the view of the Leftist that only Caucasians can be racist, then we produce a society devoid of principles and a breeding ground for anarchy and bloodshed.  A society bereft of principles is not a society I want to live in because it is inherently dangerous, and life becomes valueless.  I want to live in a world where people are not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.  I don’t want to create a barbarian world that is filled with racist of all ethnic origins.

We have lost the word “Racism” and made it virtually meaningless and nothing more than political rhetoric.  Tragically, in that process, we have also lost the word “Character” and made it so obscure and twisted we no longer value it or even know what it is.  I have long believed that to have “Character” means, to be honest, demonstrate self-restraint and not be self-absorbed and developmentally challenged and with an entitlement mentality that makes one a burden to productive people.  Character is not unique to any race or ethnicity but is a biblical and moral value we should all aspire to demonstrate.

People can call me whatever they want but I’m fed up with being called a Racist because I hold a particular political, biblical, moral, and ethical view.  I believe the Bible.  I trust God.  I long for the Republic that our Founders envisioned where we acknowledge that “All are created equal and have the inalienable right to Live their Lives free of undue government regulation and restriction.  To be able to enjoy Liberty and Pursue Happiness.”  These are reasons I reject the Democratic Party’s push to reclaim the White House, the Senate, or expand their control in the House of Representatives.  I hope you will join me as we fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom!

God bless you and God bless America

BEING EXPOSED HURTS – Providing You Are Even Cognizant You Have Been…


Why do I say it that way?  Because I am 100% convinced that the Activist Socialist, Leftist of the Democrat Party in Washington, the Media, Hollywood, and elsewhere haven’t a clue about what we see.  If they saw what millions of us see, they would be embarrassed by their exposure and feel like a person who suddenly lost their clothes on main street.  They would be, as we say in the South, “Nekkid.”  But, alas, they either think we are too dumb to notice, or they are oblivious to reality or both.

The Citizenship Question controversy has laid the agenda to erase our borders bare for everyone to see.  There are multiple factors in the uproar over the citizenship question’s objection by the Left.  None of those factors bode well for America, our Republic, our Freedom, and the legal American citizens.  The ultimate objective is votes, winning elections, and power.  It is about ‘fundamentally transforming’ America without following the Constitutional process.  It is about shifting the Power of Washington to the Leftist Socialist Liberal Progressive side of the equation.  In a word, it is about Control.  But that does not suffice to fully detail the agenda behind the controversy.

If anyone truly believes that those on the Left give a hoot about the feelings of the illegals or anyone else, I would like to see if you’d be interested in my oceanfront property in West Texas.  I can make you a wonderful deal on the fictional property at an exorbitant price. You will be happy in your Utopia and I will fund my retirement into the foreseeable future.  Yes, I am being sarcastic, but for a reason and with good reason.

If you truly believe that this is a Trump trick to ferret out those in hiding you are clearly not thinking and being intellectually honest.  This is an attempt to restore the intent of the Founding Fathers and the Framers of the American Constitution regarding representation.  That’s right, Congressional Representation!  You may want illegals determining how many Representatives each state is awarded, but those of us who study the Constitution and see the dangers of that do not. 

The president is directed by the Constitution to conduct a census every ten years and that has been done since 1790.  It has only been on rare occasions was the citizenship question not on the census.  Imagine that!  That has never been an issue with the Democrats or the Republicans in Congress until now.  Why?   Because it is their nemesis, Donald J. Trump, adding it back to the census for 2020.  I believe their opposition reveals a sickness in our society, politically, that will prove to be terminal if not addressed. 

If you believe that all human beings are ‘citizens of the world’ and should be afforded the rights and privileges of any nation in which they find themselves, you would be a proponent of those who resist asking the question.  If you believe in the sovereignty of individual nations and want to preserve, protect, and defend that sovereign nation, you would be in favor of asking the question.  If you believe that only citizens should determine representation, then you are in favor of the question’s inclusion and if you are a member of the Liberal Leftists Anti-American Crowd you oppose it. 

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there are 11.3 million illegals residing in the United States.  I believe that number is woefully low, but let’s take their estimate.  Can you not see how that number of people could shift the numbers used to determine representation in Congress?   Our framers and founders never intended for non-citizens to be used to determine representation.  They did not believe that those non-citizens should vote in our elections, hold political office, or determine representation in Congress.  That was reserved for legal American citizens.  I agree!

The reapportionment of Congressional Representation following the 2020 Census will determine how many Representatives each state is awarded.  That will determine the voting balance in the Electoral College.  Shifting the votes in just a few states could shift the entire electoral process dramatically to the Ultra Left. 

The Democrats see these illegals as potential votes and want to protect them at all costs, even to the destruction of our Constitutional form of government.  Power and Control is the name of the game and they believe that if they can gain power and build an iron-clad voting bloc they can do what they please and Rule.  That is not the vision of our Founders or Framers, and it is not my vision. 

I challenge you to talk to recent High School or College graduates and ask them to tell you what it means to be an American.  They have been taught, largely, by liberal leftists’ elitist who wants no borders, no allegiance to a nation, no citizenship classification connected to any single country. 

They believe we are ‘citizens of the world’ and should have free ingress and egress with no regard to borders.  They sing kumbaya and live in their ivory towers of utopian fantasy.  Those students will likely tell you that it means to abide or reside in America.  Many of them have been so indoctrinated with the Cult of Multiculturalism they cannot see the handwriting on the wall.  If you disagree you are a misogynist, racist, bigot, an suffer as a phobic despicable person.

I am far more concerned about jackbooted government agents pulling people out of their homes to relocate them in ‘re-education camps’ than I am about ICE finding and deporting illegals.  Tyranny is rooted in the agenda of the Left and we must fight to preserve our Constitutional form of Government.  We live in perilous times politically as well as spiritually.  I keep praying for America to Wake Up!  The Woke Crowd’s stupor is frightening to this Freedom Loving America!

God bless you and God bless America!

THEY TOTALLY EXPOSED THEMSELVES THIS TIME…


Who did?  The Democrats in the debate last night in Texas.  I was disturbed, appalled, angry, frustrated, and disheartened by what little I heard.  I was alarmed and disappointed that even in the bastion of liberalism that Houston, Texas has become and the university at which they held the debate.  But, with the influx of liberal thought from outside the state and the decades of brainwashing in our universities, I am not surprised.  Add to that mix the bought and paid for liberal activist what else would we expect?

The Democratic Candidates for President, with the minor exception of Joe Biden, all revealed that the Constitution is meaningless to them.  As it was with Barack Obama, if it prevents them from doing what they want, they are willing to ignore it.  The assertions and appeals being made from that group were rooted in ignorance, misinformation, and paranoia.  It was an attempt to fan the flames of irrational emotion to achieve an end.  The end, I am convinced is not what they say they are seeking to achieve.

The question was raised to Kamala Harris about Joe Biden’s comment that her promise to secure ‘gun control’ on her first day in office as President through executive order.  Biden said and tried to repeat that ‘We have a Constitution.’  She ignored that as did the rest of the crowd.  Those especially disgusting included Robert Francis O’Rourke and Cory Booker.  They made some outlandishly ignorant statements that need to be addressed.  However, the bottom line is far worse than their ignorance.

I can understand the frustration of feeling like you are supposed to do something to protect people.  I can appreciate the urge to do something to quiet the fears of the public after mass shootings.  I can appreciate trying to find a viable and real solution to a problem.  However, if you begin with the wrong premise you reach a wrong conclusion.  That is what they are doing and what millions across America are doing.  We are treading water in the murky waters of tyranny and must be cautious.

The words of Benjamin Franklin and his warning should be given new life today.  I will paraphrase, “If we give up liberty hoping to gain safety and security, we will achieve neither.”  The idea that banning, confiscating, forcing people to sell their guns to the government WILL NOT solve the problem but make Americans less safe.  That reality is not the most dangerous part of their pursuit and agenda.  If we give up rights in one area, such as our 2nd Amendment Rights what is to prevent them from taking rights in other areas.  They are already attacking our 1st Amendment Rights and our 4th Amendment Rights.  What is next?  Total Tyranny?

Mr. O’Rourke demonstrated his total ignorance regarding guns or his diabolical intent or both.  He tried to make the argument that the AR-15 and AK-47 were designed to kill and therefore must be banned.  Sir, I must ask, “What gun is not designed to kill?”  He further stated that the ‘high capacity’ rifles were incredibly dire because the ‘high capacity’ rifle bullet when it hits its targets spreads throughout the body because that was its design.  That is total ignorance and I would hope he knows it.  The magazine does not determine the effect of the bullet.  If he was speaking of a bullet that fragments and stays within the body, he was probably speaking of ‘frangible’ ammo.  That round is designed for close-quarters use by the police or to protect innocent bystanders in the instance a round must be fired at a perpetrator. 

Mr. O’Rourke was asked if he would force Americans to give up their so-called ‘assault’ rifles.  He said, “Hell yes, I will take their guns.”  He and Mr. Booker tired to make the impassioned plea that ‘We have to do something.’  All of them argued that we could not wait until the Democrats were back in power but must do something now. 

Mr. Booker said that 80% of Americans favor a federal gun license.  Well, 83% believe that mental health is the main cause of mass shootings.  So, again, I contend that they are targeting the wrong root cause. The paranoia over semi-automatic rifles is misguided.  Have we forgotten that the scores of murders and shootings in cities like Chicago and New York are not with an AR-15 or AK-47 but a handgun?  Will that be banned next by the left.  If you demand a federal gun license will you also demand a valid photo voter identification?

The problem, which I have stated before, is that when a mass shooting takes place and the government acts with another ‘gun law’ that restricts the rights of legal Americans it does not solve the problem.  There is another public outcry to ‘do something’ and another more restrictive law is passed or enacted and that also fails.  Over time, the public becomes accepting of the idea of ‘banning guns’ trying to find safety and that opens the door for the government to impose restrictions in every area of life and gives them Total Control.

The inherent dangers of following this path of targeting a style of firearms thinking that is the solution are mountainous.  America, if we allow the politicians to continue stripping us, the law-abiding of our inalienable and constitutional rights hoping the criminals will also comply we endanger ourselves.

Additionally, if you think Donald Trump is foul-mouthed, how about condemning the potty mouth former Congressman from El Paso.  He seems to think that his increasing use of profanity is somehow endearing him to the public.  I find it repulsive and it shows his lack of ability to communicate so he is trying to be macho and demonstrate that he is a take-charge guy fighting for the people.  I see no redeeming value in his arguments or his demonstrated character.

America, if we do not wake up and reject that group of people who see no value, no authority, and have no respect for the document they will swear to protect and defend we destroy ourselves.   I reject the lot of them and will vote to ensure they do not regain control in 2020.

God bless you and God bless America!

YOUR CHOICE AMERICA – What’s Your Pleasure?


We can either move toward Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Fascism, and Political Correctness engendering a universal ‘snowflake society’ or we can move toward restoring the Constitutional Republic.  Which would you prefer?  Some will take aim at that statement and insist that there is no difference in the choices in this coming presidential election, but I beg to differ. 

We can move back into the stagnant economic conditions with overt and covert government regulations stifling business as we had under Barack H. Obama or we can progress in the recovering economy.  Which would you prefer?  The Democrats all insist that they will ‘fix’ the economy.  What exactly are they going to fix?  The lowest unemployment in decades?  The rising wages?  The lower taxes?  What are they going to ‘fix’ or is it ‘fix’ as in dealing with your cat or dog and neuter or spay us?  Which would you prefer?

Political Correctness is destroying this Republic and creating unbridgeable chasms.  Political Correctness has allowed the use of the charge of ‘hate speech’ to be bandied about making it virtually meaningless.  Yes, I believe racism exists and hate exists, but it is not one-sided, and that highway is a two-way street if not a four-lane thoroughfare.  People of all ethnicities, races, colors, and ideologies can be and sometimes do exhibit and practice racism, bias, bigotry, and spew forth hate. 

When it is deemed justifiable to beat-down a person wearing a MAGA hat but an act of racism, and hate-filled bigotry to criticize a leftist that is destructive and inviting more violence, division, and animosity.  If I tell you that you are ugly, which I would not do, that is not racist or bigotry it is an opinion.  It would be rude but would not qualify for any of the monikers attached to any criticism of a person of another ethnicity or political persuasion.  If I tell you that your policies have done damage to your own ethnicity and your district that is not racist it is an opinion.  It may be backed up by empirical data that supports my statement but does not qualify as hate, bigotry, or racism. 

In today’s political world if President Trump or anyone on the Right criticizes anyone on the Left, especially if they are of non-white lineage it is deemed racism and immediately rejected.  President Trump called Al Sharpton a ‘con-man.’  Imagine that! 

Al Sharpton has gotten away with non-payment of millions in owed taxes, fomenting rioting against the religious Jews in Brooklyn, and boycotted a Kenyan grocery store calling the owners, ‘yellow monkeys.’  He has led anti-Semitic racially charged rallies that resulted in the Freddy’s Department Store massacre, and purposefully destroyed the lives of two white police officers in the Tawana Brawley hoax.  He has hidden behind the title “reverend” while threating ‘no justice, no peace.’  I happen to believe that the President was being truthful and calling things as they are not as the PC World demands. 

Calling the Main Stream Media’s bias to light is not racist, it is factual.  It is a truth that most people know deep inside and have thought. Sadly when the public eye is upon them many are afraid to voice that opinion. When President Trump calls out the decades-long Democrat-run cities in America that are tottering on the brink of ruin that is not racism it is an opinion rooted in fact and statistical data.  The seemingly untouchables such as Representative Elijah Cummings of Baltimore are being exposed and that is somehow racist.  No, it is holding the facts up for everyone willing to look to see. 

When the President and those of us who want to see a Restored Republic push back against the vile names, charges, and pleas for violence against us we are not racist we are taking a stand for Freedom and Right.  I want everyone to be protected under the Constitution and that includes the aforementioned individuals.  Barack Obama used his position to malign America and Americans not on his side of the aisle or his ethnicity and that was acceptable but if Trump offers a criticism, he is deemed a racist. 

Trump did not and I do not call for the deportation of all non-whites in America.  It is not a skin-color issue but one of legitimacy and national security.  The mind and the heart are far more important than the pigmentation of the skin.  Do we want to continue the pathway to destruction launched by Barack Obama’s racism and religious bigotry, or would we prefer an America where “all men and women are created equal, with the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness recognized and protected?”

I am proud to be an American and am willing to fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom.  I want the dignity and sovereignty of this Republic protected.  Every politician elected to serve in Congress, or any other national office has taken an oath to “protect and defend” the Constitution.  It is time to hold them accountable and insist they do just that.  It is not their personal preference of what they wish the Constitution stated but what it states that is the Law.  It is time that we call out the so-called leaders in America whose policies and politics are destroying our cities and weakening our nation.  It is time that we identify and expose the self-serving agitators who try to identify as civil-rights leaders and take definitive steps to make America better and even great again. 

Call me whatever you please, that won’t change what I believe.  My mother taught me, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”  I’ve modified that clinging to the first part but adapting the second to ‘words will never stop me.’  They may hurt deeply but they won’t change the truth or alter my responsibility to do what I believe is right.

HOW CRAZY CAN WE BECOME? – Is Not Meant To Be A Challenge…


Yes, I say that with some levity but also with heartbroken seriousness based on what I am witnessing across this great country.  Craziness, some argue, has become the new normal.  I contend, it is not normal but a new venture into the world of the inane and political correctness has plunged.  It is the fruit of toxic liberalism and the snowflake mentality that has become pervasive in far too many circles today. 

I have some dear friends who are lifelong native Californians and out of respect for them, I try to avoid stereotyping all Californians as crazies.  That being said, there are cities and governmental entities that make that increasingly more difficult.  California is a beautiful state and one friend who has lived there his whole life recently said, “If it were not from my family roots, I would leave the state and never look back.”  Another, said, “California is a great place to be from, far away from.”  Again, please don’t take offense because Texas has some of those same crazies and seems to be producing more of them with each passing year and election. 

I am beginning to wonder if sanity has taken leave and crazy has become the go-to mentality of a majority today.  I hope that is not the case but when women seem to have taken offense by the exempted from the identification of those maintenance holes in our streets and forced the renaming from ‘manhole covers’ to ‘maintenance hole covers.’  What?  I can only imagine the outcry if they decided to change their name to ‘woman hole cover.’  It is an impossible situation for those who opt to take offense to everything not gender-neutral. 

I saw a report recently that listed some of the decisions of the City Council of Berkley, California.  I laughed and cried and thought, “How crazy can we get?”  They decided to remove all references to gender in any of their laws.  That’s right, you cannot refer to brothers and sisters but siblings.  You can no longer say he or she but they.  That is mandated even if there is only one person being referred to.  That lone individual regardless of gender is not a he or she but they.  The aforementioned manhole covers are now maintenance hole covers because women are offended as are those promoting a gender-neutral society. 

Miss Kathy Zhu the Miss Michigan winner was decertified as the winner of that state’s Pageant.  Why?  She committed the unpardonable sin of having an opinion that is outside the accepted liberal mainstream.  Two years ago, she posted on Twitter a response to the Black Lives Matter tweet criticizing the police.  She defended law enforcement.  How dare she?  What did she say that was so grossly offensive?  She tweeted a question: “Do you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks?  Fix the problem within your own community first before blaming others.”  Her reasoned question and statement offended those on the left and she was stripped of her crown.

Of course, she also committed the unthinkable in questioning something regarding Muslim women when her college endorsed a “World Hijab Day.”  The Muslim women were encouraging passersby to “Try a hijab on.”  She made this statement that made her a candidate for being boiled in oil.  “So, you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing?  Or are you just trying to get women used to be oppressed by Islam?”  Yeah, pointed questions but questions that many of us have thought and questions that should be legitimately asked. 

Returning to California for my observation on the craziness and the insane political correctness that is pervasive today I offer an example.  A doctoral candidate who is also a teaching assistant named Laura Tanner is under attack, not because of something she said in the classroom but on her own time and in her own world on Twitter.  She said, “It is not possible to be born in the wrong body.”  I agree!  The demands are that she be immediately fired. 

How about Queen Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat-controlled House of Representatives?  They had to get into the act and approved what was called ‘Equality Act’ in a vote of 236-173.  That Act, if not blocked by President Trump will require allowing males who ‘identify’ as female via the transgender process to be allowed to compete in all-girl sporting events.  If that gains the president’s signature the female vs female competition will be a memory and no longer exist. 

The amazing thing is this is called Progress by the Progressives, Liberals, Leftist, Socialist, Activists, and Democrats.  Progress?  I guess I really don’t know what progress is if this is progress.  Can I have a cup of sanity to go with my morning coffee, please?  God help us if we allow this craziness to become the norm in America.  I agree with the statement I heard recently, “Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare?”

God bless you and God bless America!
