American IQ

According to a recent poll, 2/3rds of Americans would have difficulty coming up with the money to cover a $1,000 emergency.  Even for the wealthiest 20% — those making more than $100,000 a year — 38% would have difficulty coming up with $1,000.

Despite this, 2/3rds said they feel positive about their finances…  Wha???  Huh???  How does that idea follow the other idea? 

…and if faced with that $1,000 bill, the majority wouldn’t pay with money on hand anyway, they would borrow from a bank, friends and/or family… or put it on a credit card.

In addition 13% would skip paying other bills, and 11% said they would not pay the bill at all.  Nice!!!  Sure…  just stiff the guy that’s the American Way. 

But you can bet the very next day these same people will be lining up at Starbucks for their $5.25 Frappacinos.

God help us.  And these people are voting on economic issues?  And the worst of it???  most of them are in Congress!

True Colors

Last night in Orange County CA, thugs overwhelmed the police (who are now useless) and made a mockery of the First Amendment.
Donald Trump came to make a speech and the leftist “liberal” thugs used violence to quash his rights.  The Police???  For whom we pay taxes???  not up to the job.
Everyone knows that Republicans hate poor people, women, immigrants…  yet I cannot find one Republican friend who holds any of those feelings.
So, what’s going on???  First the real haters are on the Left.  Could you imagine a similar thing happening at a Hillary rally?  Republicans smashing police cars and threatening violence to the participants?  Could you?
Of course not.  So here’s the obvious elephant in the room…  the unchecked hatred of the Left for anything that does not fit their world view…  and the current government’s lack of desire and ability to rightfully handle it.
Shame.  Peggy Noonan has it about correct in her column last week.  You can read it here…
Thanks.  I pray that we awaken from this national slide into intolerance and hatred.  These are the TRUE COLORS of the Left.  They are the haters.  Please help save what little is left of our country.  Stand up for what is Right.

We the People

Trump and the GOP.  This my letter to the editors of the Weekly Standard (a true conservative and more – American magazine).
Dear Sirs/Madams;

All that fear and loathing with Mitt Romney today.  What is that about?  Sounds of the dying, desperate last gasps of a failed elite – the GOP.  
I am thinking of Marie and Louis 1789 France …  so wrapped up in their court intrigues they could not recognize there are real people with experiences (quite mundane often) other than theirs.  They did not end up well.  Now the GOP elite are in the same frame of mind.
But it is real people not the elites who make the decisions in this country (not Obama, not Hillary and not Donald – he actually seems to “get” that).  Yes…  We the People…  words that make me tear up as I write them.  Not you the elite who feel the need to tell us what we should THINK.  Shame on the GOP.
What is going on with Trump is so OBVIOUS to all us (We the People),that it’s flabbergasting that you don’t see it.  The GOP has utterly failed us, even with an incompetent in Presidential office.  And worse – your mouthpiece – Mitt lost to him.  Obama was the most surprised guy Election Day November 2012…  he was sure he was going to lose…  but he didn’t.
Here’s the point – We all want to see Hillary sent packing in the worst way.  I have voted Republican since I learned my lessons after college about Democrats.  We the People are willing to sacrifice some our conservative principles and to do exactly that.  Not one of the GOP’s supported candidates can do that.  Donald can.
As was once said, politics is the art of the practical, not the possible.

Phony Class Warfare

Phony Class Warfare (See headline below)

Well here again are the facts about who pays and who gets.  So talk to me about… fair.  Shouldn’t the 45% be thanking the “rich” instead of vilifying them?  What is certain is that this is a story that you won’t hear from either Hillary or Bernie (Two phony class warriors if there ever were such a thing – Karl Marx was another.  He never worked a day in his life and was a mooch of epic proportions…  but I digress).

This story is an inconvenient truth that does not fit their narrative.*  Sounds like the same old lame class warfare attempting to get votes by stoking that old, reliable, most common and banal of all human emotions – envy.  I guess it is one way to get elected.

*Narrative is a story…  that may or not be factual. Often it is simply an act of faith or an outright lie.

Here’s the link to the whole story.  You be the judge.

Children in Charge

It’s hard to remember what the Democratic Party used to be like just 20 years ago.  There were actual adults running the Party…  go back and check it out…  the majority of the Party were (1) fiscal conservatives who worked for balanced budgets, (2) global hawks who believed in maintaining global peace through a strong military, and (3) sensible social architects who understood the necessary limits on welfare in all its forms.
Today, the Democratic Party is contemplating running Bernie Sanders (a socialist hobbit and Chief Child in Charge – Think “Lord of the Flies”) as their presidential candidate.  He, the darling of the pampered child-like 18 – 22 year old college demographic might actually beat that old mendacious battle-axe – Clinton.  Yes the children are truly running the Democratic Party now.  The responsible House Democrats from the last generation must have wondered how it ever got this far…  Now we know.
Here’s Bernie…Bernie Hobbit

The Donald

Say what you will about Donald… loud-mouthed, egocentric, maybe even poor presidential material (I doubt it given an incompetent like Obama made it to the White house… but I digress), but he knows exactly what he is doing.

In a presidential campaign marked by the dull and the predictable: Hillary’s Marxist –Feminist ideas… Rich people are… blah blah blah… War on women…blah blah blah) and the Republicans ideas (I can’t think of a single good one right now), Donald has kept it interesting… and the polls support that.

For the past 72-hour news cycle… he is the only candidate on TV getting tons of free PR thanks to the “outrage” of CNN and MSNBC (both of whom are outraged everyday). In a normal news cycle these networks would be getting out the vote for Hillary.

In fact BOTH networks were so outraged that yesterday the TV on-screen sub-banner screamed in CAPS, “IS TRUMP A FACIST?” No you morons, he’s a genius and he is playing you guys like a fiddle. Say what you will about Donald, but he is managing to keep every other candidate out of the news.


My brother pointed this out yesterday:  The Glaring DOUBLE Standard…

The media and their progressive friends are permitted to call Donald Trump a nazi and a racist.  First it is wildly inaccurate… meaning they are clueless about the definition of those words.  Second and far more insidious…  they are not held to account for their slander or the injury those labels produce.  
Can you image any media outlet referring to Obama or Clinton in those terms?  Can you?  Even though arguably the labels fit better.
That my friends is hypocrisy and the glaring double standard at the heart of the liberal progressive point of view.
I pray to God that this awful crowd will one day have to pay for their looseness and meanness. Karma is a bitch as they say.    You go Donald Trump and call them out for the phonies they are.
Merry Christmas.

Hypocrisy – When the Truth Doesn’t Matter Anymore

Make no mistake – political correctness is a disease of the small minded where the ultimate victim is truth. “In an age of deceit (read: political correctness – for that is what it is, deceit), telling the truth is a revolutionary act” – and in a PC culture the equivalent of treason.

So you have to ask yourself why has the truth about the Oregon Community College murderer’s parentage been hidden? The facts are the victims are white and the shooter’s mother is black (making the shooter as black as the President). Were the situation reversed that would be sufficient for us to have to endure 24-7 news coverage, marches and riots.

What makes this truly creepy is a photo of the killer (shown on CNN) that was literally “white” washed to lighten his skin color. So who’s racist here – me, CNN? Be careful – the truth can get you into trouble in a PC society.

This, of course in a healthy society would be considered beyond shameful. But in our society today… How small minded are you that you have to hang onto to your liberal racist narrative? Why are you so afraid of the truth?

I am now a racist per our modern PC culture. I am guilty of treason!

Home of the Brave, Land of the Free…

We live in serious and surreal times…

Not for long if we don’t wake up.  Saul Alinsky’s two most famous students are (1) in the White House (Obama) and, (2) running for that office (Hillary)…  (look him up

Saul is famous for his rules for radical dictatorship – he was a disciple of that wonderfully warm human being – V. Lenin.

Here are his eight rules for overthrowing a democratic republic…  (Hillary wrote her college thesis on this)

#1.  Control healthcare and you control people.

#2.  Increase poverty levels to control the poor with handouts.

#3.  Increase national debt as a direct result of the handouts increasing interest burden creating the need for further taxation.

#4.  Gun control – disarm the population and create a police state.

#5.  Expand the welfare state creating dependency for housing, food and income,

#6.  Control what’s taught in school – indoctrinate the children early into a set of beliefs consistent with dictatorship.

#7.  Remove religion from government and schools.

#8.  Create class warfare between the “have’s” and “have-nots”.  Emphasizing that the haves have taken what was fairly the have not’s.

Any of this look, feel, and sound familiar.  There is a great deal of money backing these two people.  There are far more of us that despise that kind of cynicism and human enslavement.

Who will win?  The money and cynics like Obama and Hillary…  or Americans who grew up actually believing in the Home of the Brave, Land of the Free…

Are you finally starting to get the picture?

Given the events this week at the Supreme Court and the consolidation of Hillary as the only Democratic candidate (in another life she would be in charge of the Gestapo or the KGB), are you beginning to get the picture?

I ask this because I received two emails from our readers this week that reach the same conclusion for America.

First email…

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage.”  

— Alexander Fraser Tytler 

 Second email…

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff. 

 And the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. 

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more Free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!


Now… The people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING 
the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.  

Now understand this…   All great democracies have committed suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded.  The reason…

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

Too dark for you???  OK.. Think Greece…  OK… Think California…  Neither in a million years will ever vote a fiscally conservative government into office again.  Oh  this makes you feel bad… you want something lighter?  Then go to Disneyland with the kids.  And when you get home…  wake up.  What is happening IS as simple and predictable as these two emails sent to me in the same week.



Brave New World – Of Valor and Virtue

ESPN is giving Bruce Jenner a ‘courage” award for putting on a dress.  Wasn’t he far more deserving competing in the decathlon all those years ago?  We now confuse courage with narcissism?  Courage awards were once reserved for men in battle and those running into burning buildings. *

We keep creating new classes of people who deserve our approval and special treatment.  Poor Bruce – a woman trapped in a man’s body…  now trans-gender is heroic.  And today in the news we have the NAACP’s Rachel Dolezal, who was apparently a “black women” trapped in a white women’s body…  now trans-racialism is heroic?  Instead of getting fired for lying, ESPN would give her an award.

Where exactly is the courage?  Courage is running against the current, not with it.  Being trans-gender is “in”…  it is hip.  Where’s the courage when you are simply floating in with the tide?   Now we’ll be subjected to a rash of “trans-racial-ness” and all those poor black people trapped in white bodies will be celebrated.  We just used to call this type of behavior odd.

I don’t care if Bruce wears a dress…  I do care when we confuse courage with its opposite – narcissism.  In our brave new world, courage is now to be defined by identity, not actions.  There is something wrong here folks.


* Just another reason not to watch ESPN – an ABC network that also brings you George Stephanopoulos.
