American’s, Starved For Decency
“Live and let live” was once a cherished but un-codified phrase that kept us from punching each other’s headlights out over minor disagreements on any number of subjects. It has been swept away by the political philosophy of socialism that demands complete control over everything, the rule of laws be damned. At the local level it’s best seen in the rising incidents of road rage.
Democrats calling for “resistance” have shed all pretense of civility to “live and let live.” It’s to be their way or no way. A year and a half out, they still haven’t grasped the truth that they are no longer in charge of the federal government. All that’s left for them is to yap and snip at the heels of the real leader we now have in Donald Trump, and his supporters.
The politeness scenario that once guided our debates, has been swept away by hysterical
Democrats desperate to retain any claim on power. Three successive national elections have left Democrats stunned. Searching for other methods of maintaining relevance and with no more arguments left in their playbook except “Stop Trump”, they have turned to their chapter on anarchy and are actively encouraging attacks on conservatives through intimidating, in your face name calling, screaming spittle frothing epitaphs and character defamation screeds. When democrats wielded power they used the Dept. of Justice and the now corrupted FBI, not to mention the IRS, to eliminate their opponents. For Democrats, civility is gone, lies are commonplace and to ignore all ideas other than their Marxist scribblings, is expected.
That simple phrase, “live and let live,” encompassed principles that, along with an understanding of the ten commandments, guided us as citizens to live together in peace and harmony and accept the differences. We went together to the 4th of July parades and picnics, the evening fireworks, Veterans day events and all the pro-American programs that reflected American’s pride, and we did it without fighting one another. Americans are starved for decency.
The Socialist theories of economic control, that has taken over the whole of the Democrat Party, and has infiltrated GOP ranks, might explain why Republicans have long been accused of not fighting back, but going along to get along with the Socialists to the point of even agreeing that what the Democrat-Socialist party wanted was really good for America.
Our streets are on fire and it’s the Democrats doing. Alarmed American’s quickly organized under the Tea Party banner to figure out a way to do what the Republican weren’t doing, fighting back. But, Tea Party members didn’t run around attacking Democrats, destroying property or stealing campaign signs from supporters yards, or defacing bumper stickers.
When Republicans controlled only the House of Representatives, and the Tea Party was clearly considered a dissident group in danger of actually damaging the “Deep State”, liberal politicians, MSM journalists and “Moderate Republicans,” saw no need to be civil toward the Tea Partiers and the stage was set for where we are today, both parties in disarray, as they should be, and little can be done to remedy it. Nothing heals faster than open wounds, properly treated.
“Demands for civility almost always come from people who lost their own right to the respect they expect. The last resort of someone who has run out of good moral arguments is lies, innuendoes, falsehoods and now, resistance. Democrats have lost the stage on which to act out their identity as politicians and have turned into the anarchists they now are. They’re desperate Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (28Jun18)

COLLINS BILL TO HONOR FALLEN CLERMONT MARINE SENT TO PRESIDENT’S DESK
WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.
“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.
Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.
Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.
That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.
The skinny figure of Obama racing onto the American political stage in a fruitless attempt to
claim credit for Trump’s economic success is one visible symptom of the inevitable collapse of
the Democratic party. Or is it? The theatrics of politics is often funny, sometimes hypocritical and
ofttimes dangerous, the players not skilled as thespians, but earnestly deadly.
Other symptoms are all around us. The uncivil behavior of Democrat Senators Cory Booker and
Kamala Harris, both hopefuls for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, disrupting the
Kavanaugh hearings even before they got started; the scheming plan by Chuckie Schumer to fill
the senate judicial hearing chamber with protestors, one of which was later photographed
outside receiving a cash payment from a radical leftist organizer; the absolutely asinine, last
minute revelation of an anonymous letter breathlessly alleging a sexual assault by Judge
Kavanaugh in his high school years. Where did that aging blowhard, California Senator Diane
Feinstein, come up with something that? Desperation, that’s where!
Former senator, failed Secretary of State and Ketchup heir, John Kerry (who has three purple
hearts from paper cuts he received in Vietnam), is actively undermining US policy on Iran by
illegally running off to advise the Iranians on how to out-wait Trumps presidency. He admits it.
Can he be charged with treason? These are only a few of the derangement symptoms currently
on display by radical leftist democrats.
Of course Feinstein, in all her pious seriousness immediately forwarded the anonymous
missive, like any good citizen would, to the FBI where, presumably it was received by them with
the contempt it so richly deserved, “Oh hum” and a quick trip to the round file.
Mr. John Kerry, has been upbraided by President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,
for activities “unseemly and unprecedented” meaning treasonous, and Kerry’s fall back position
is to tell the President to read his book, Every Day is Extra. Knowing Kerry’s long known far left
radical sympathies, it isn’t difficult to assume his book is but a conflated list of excuses for his
socialist leaning diplomatic failures. Remember, like Obama, John Kerry too has a legacy to
Will the Democrats penchant to continually grasp for symbols of their heroism, never end? Why
does Cory Booker believe he had an “I am Spartacus” moment? Why did the leftist media claim
Obama’s return to the political stage was as “the Return of the Jedi?” These are serious
And of course the biggest piece of democrat theatrics ever conceived, the Mueller Investigation
of Donald Trumps (alleged) collusion with those scheming Russians, continues apace in the
medias efforts to throw off the collusion by Hillary Clinton onto the shoulders of Donald Trump.
Nearly two years have passed and the only true and actual collusion found was committed by
the Democrats, especially the yet un-indited criminal Hillary Clinton. The evidence, not symbols,
of her criminality and treason are no longer so opaque they can’t be dealt with almost
immediately after the DoJ is finally purged of it’s Orwellian Obama obstructionists.
The raft of Leftist millennials, especially females, running for congress, seem to be out of touch
but, that’s because they are but youthful amateurs not skilled in the art of dissemblege, yet! When
they do, we had better be prepared for ‘em because they won’t be acting. Remember, freedom
is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (15Sept18)

See What Trump has Wrought
Rumor has it that the GOP will suffer terrible losses in 2018, an off year election losses that comes as surely as Elm blight comes in January. Rumor also has it that the Democrats may survive their current malise and sweep all before them in the off year election, if the had something to offer. A return of Obamacare perhaps, or more perverts in bathrooms? How about making all of America a “sanctuary” country by law? Yes, that should do it. Good selling points.
Why is it assumed that the alternative to the GOP should be a Democrat? They have moved so far to the “Left” as to be no longer recognizable as an American institution. They are a facsimile replica of the old Communist Party USA, an odious group of Marxist-Leninist social engineers whose goal, as a political philosophy, was top down “collectivism.” Losers for over 100 years.
American’s already cast their vote for change when they elected Donald Trump despite the screaming establishment GOP’ers who fought against him and the purveyors of doom and gloom, the geriatric Democrat leadership who fear the truth of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” program could doom them forever. We now know Trump was not bombast but a man of action. We took our chances as voters sick and tired of “diversity and multiculturalism, lying and stealing, Hillary Clinton and her Money laundering foundation and, we see it’s working.
It has taken a year for the “Establishment” GOP to realize that Trump, like a bulldozer, has made changes never thought possible. That’s what Americans wanted, a fighter, not a phony group name that was scared to do anything against the supposed might of the Democrat colossus that wielded power for themselves, not Americans, like they were entitled to it.
Democrat programs have turned out to be a concoction of lies designed solely to social engineer American society into a diverse, multicultural collection of perverts, homosexuals, transgenders and other victims that would keep the Democrats in power. Americans do not want “sanctuary cities” harboring illegal criminals, protecting them from the consequences of their crimes. Americans do not want perverts sharing bathroom facilities with their little children. Americans do not want “collectivism” as their guiding principles but rather would prefer a return to some level of moral and cultural certainty based on the centuries of Judaeo-Christian moral codes that made America great.
For 2018, Trump’s successes are out in the open for all to see. Passing the major overhaul of the “Progressive Tax Plan,” including all but killing off Obamacare by eliminating the odious mandate to buy the thing, is a success that should be trumpeted daily. Let Democrat politicians try to explain why they voted against tax cuts when the rewards start flowing in simply because they didn’t like Trump? Republicans had best get on board and help Trump, not hinder him.
Americans are vaguely aware that the EPA is being reduced and its unconstitutional laws, rules and regulations are being rolled back returning to property owners control of their own property. The Dept. of Energy, under former Texas Governor Rick Perry, is likewise making changes to advance America’s role in the energy sector. Now, we’re selling energy, not buying it.
Another occurrence this past week that made the Democrats go berserk was Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel. That act alone flushed out the real enemies of the US, the third world nations in the UN enjoying the generosity of American taxpayers. Supported by Nikki Haley that could bode ill for them. Americans want out of the UN!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (21Dec17)
I could start out I suppose with some screed about the disappearing Al Franken(stein) but he’s done so much damage to himself and his party that little more need be said. Just keep it in mind that Al Franken is a really creepy fellow. My lasting image of him was his role in the movie Trading Places mocking a caged gorilla. I can’t get that image out of my mind and listening to big Al, now a humorless US Senator from Minnesota, interrogate Trump appointees as a member of the Senate Judiciary committee, I’m not convinced at all that the real gorilla truly didn’t get released back into the African wild. Enough on Al.
President Trump has just returned from his first presidential tour in the Far East. His reception by the Chinese was triumphal yet marred in the eyes of Trumps Chinese hosts by the ugly American incident that embarrassed President Trump, and should have embarrassed all American’s.
It seems that the UCLA Basketball team was on a tour playing against teams in the Chinese People’s Republic, when three of UCLA’s sterling members, Americans of African descent as it turns out, brought shame and embarrassment to President Trump and disgrace to themselves, and our nation, by assuming they were in their neighborhood corner convenience store where they could freely help themselves to pairs of sunglasses without paying for them. It’s called shoplifting or petty theft but, it’s still a crime. Could get you killed in Ferguson, Mo.
While the ‘brothers’ may look upon such actions here in America as their rightful due because their ancestors were once slaves, the Chinese look upon such social trivialities with different eyes. Ten years in a Chinese prison can be no picnic and, except for the incidental presence of an embarrassed President Trump, that’s exactly where they would have been, for a long, long time and nobody would be crying racism because nobody would care.
To their good fortune, President Trump sprung them from their worst possible nightmare of actually being enslaved as prisoners of the Chinese State. He got them home safe into the embrace of their communities where such behavior is apparently expected and alas, accepted. The three, their eyes cast down to the printed words provided to them mumbled, without contrition, their appreciation to President Trump for their salvation yet, not one word of apology was expressed to the American people for shaming our country by their feckless behavior.
People like these three are not really Americans because they have no pride and no shame. And, except for the fact they were born here, they are really just US citizens in name only, of no value to American prosperity or advancement and should be considered as such.
The three miscreants have passports and therefore, as individuals, should be allowed to come and go to foreign countries as they wish, but never, never, ever should they be allowed to go abroad again as members of any organized sports team, debate society, or anthropological research team, representing America. We have enough problems with our own government perverts stalking storm ravaged Caribbean Islands looking for poor children to molest and groping women in corporate work places to add these guys to our burden.
One big problem for America is that we have lost our morality on an individual basis. We truly believe that all (Americans) are equal yet we send forth goodwill ambassadors, passionate exponents for their sports, mostly, and they become the ugly Americans. What’s to be done?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (18Nov17).
That Gun Argument Again…
Good ol’ Sen. Diane Feinstein (D- Ca). She can always be counted on to reveal the obvious. On Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, she said: “the U.S. is a “gun happy country,…“and I think there are many of us in growing numbers that don’t want a gun-happy country.” Of course she’s wrong but was referring to the annual deaths of Americans by gun fire. She could have said the US is a gun-savvy country but that wouldn’t have fit the Progressive narrative needed to disarm all American, to protect us from gun violence, a la Las Vegas.
Last weeks mass murder in Las Vegas, by a deranged, white millionaire gunman who shot himself to death before his apprehension, gave the anti-self-defense and anti-second amendment crowd another platform of self-serving outrage to attack our Constitution.
Let’s change one word in her sentence and see where that goes: “The U.S. is a car happy country…and I think there are many of us in growing numbers who don’t want a car happy country.” Or, “The US is a hammer-happy Country…etc. & etc.” I substitute cars and hammers because these two inanimate objects account for more killings in America than guns do.
The Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, a multi-millionaire, can hire gun toting bodyguards to safeguard her person but, that’s really only from attempts at assassinations. Most Americans are subject to the sudden armed assault on the mean streets of America, or home invasions, or attempts at car-jacking from mall parking lots. These people need to defend themselves.
One third of all gun deaths in America, apart from the body count occasioned by the Las Vegas murders, are suicides. More people are killed in domestic assaults by hammers than guns and the score racked up by vehicles, jihadists included, outpaces them all.
So, why the assault specifically against firearms and not hammers and cars? All three are inanimate objects. All three require a human being to actuate them and all three are capable of killing, yet it is only the firearm, the possession of which is specifically permitted to Americans, as enshrined in the 2d Amendment, yet still stands as a horror to Progressive politicians.
The Anti-gunners argue that hammers and cars are needed daily by society to grow and guns are not. And there they miss the big picture. Society is growing and as it does it generates its own class of citizens who do not wish to participate. They won’t swing a hammer, or buy a car but they’ll go out of their way to possess a gun. What does a street creep want with a gun except to intimidate others, steal from them the rewards of their labor and leave a trail of dead bodies. Why do Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, want to deny Americans their right to self-defense from such predators?
Worse, the Founders clearly foresaw the dangers of Progressive governments, human nature being what it is, growing into a totalitarian state that, to defend itself, threatens all citizens. They foresaw the indispensable right of those citizens to especially be able to defend themselves from government despotism. And that’s what scares the hell out of Diane Feinstein, et. al..
One statistic I have omitted but is available for confirmation is, that thus far, all the mass shooting outrages committed in the USA, since Columbine, have been committed by either committed Liberals or registered Democrats. Therefore, the logical answer is to prohibit Democrats from owning firearms. Simple, isn’t it? Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em! (10Oct1)
As Goes the NFL, So Goes Middle America
Apparently, from what I read and hear, the fast spreading flames of customer discontent to the NFL’s anti-American, anti-Veteran, anti-police position, because it is taking a “unity” stance with its over paid employees, could bring that august industry to near financial collapse. Unlike the GOP whose coming collapse is occasioned by its demonstrable untrustworthiness, the NFL’s demise will be financial. Follow the money. Sadly, I don’t think they see it coming.
The NFL, a major consumer of a large portion of middle American’s declining pot of left-over earnings, dollars left untaxed by government rules and regulations, Obamacare mandates, groceries and gasoline, is facing a catastrophe. The daily struggle to exist cost money. Nothing is free, bills must be paid and those free dollars can as easily be spent elsewhere.
Middle America not only supplies the vast earnings enjoyed by sports franchises, vendors and jersey manufactures, but it also supplies the soldiers, sailors and airmen whose job it is is to keep America safe so its citizens can enjoy the diversion of watching over paid athletes bash each other once a week in a fest of organized mayhem; or tip a little ball into a net.
In our economy, leftover from the Obama era, middle American’s exists on a shoe string, the string ends cut shorter and shorter every time Liberals gets control of the governments purse strings. Americans don’t like it, but accept it, so, to simply exist requires that they spend their free money wisely. So, the smart thing to do, one should think, is to not mess with their patriotism and treat fans like morons. The first expenses to go is that spent on entertainment.
Middle Americans entertainment dollars are spent on beer, fishing, big trucks, BBQ, the NFL and the NBA. So far fish, big trucks and Bass boats have not registered protests to Americas traditions of rendering respect to our flag, our anthem or our military. If pro sports organizations continue the trend of disrespect to those traditions, then they can expect their share of middle Americas entertainment dollars to dwindle away.
I’m not at all conflicted by what’s going on here. It’s Progressive (Marxist) politics, attacking one more of America’s remaining religious institutions, organized pro-sports. They have all but eliminated the Christin religion from our culture, so, the next “opiate of the working class,” NFL and NBA pro sports, has to go as well. Already we are seeing the trickle down effect of the disrespect the NFL is showing to America’s traditions, eight year old pee wee footballers, “taking “the knee” and wondering why. They are being taught to hate America.
That Alabama’s conservative electorate chose Judge Roy Moore to face a Democrat challenger in December over appointed Republican incumbent Luther Strange, despite the President and Vice-Presidents support of Strange, signals more problems for Mitch McConnell than for Donald Trump. That the issue rises just when the Pro Football season is just getting underway, with its unfolding political problems, is a threshold moment that bears close watching. We can suppose Trumps endorsement of Strange was a sop to McConnell to appease his hurt feelings.
The NFL, on the other hand, enters the fray at their peril. They are an entertainment business, not a political one. They need money and lots of it to pay their mostly unenlightened work force the outrageous millions of dollars the players demand. Middle America knows the difference between entertainment and politics. They want ‘em separate. Hollywood is also facing a loss of its entertainment share because they have become political too.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (27Sep17)
An NFL Maelstrom is Coming
Can it possibly be that the citadel of America’s favorite Fall pastime, the mega money making conglomerate called the National Football league and its appendage, the NFL Players Assoc., are in cahoots with the radical left, both politically and economically? “Say it ain’t so Joe.” Are they really contributing millions of dollars to George Soros and other ultra-Liberal organizations dedicated to Socializing America. Do the players know? Probably not. I’ll explain…
The outward appearance is that the NFL and the NFL Players Association are determined to destroy their brand, and their livelihoods, by continuing their “unity” crusade to disrespect every thing Americas stands for and the Left hates, including its honor, its military, its customs and traditions and even the people who support them, the same middle American’s who provide the soldiers, sailors and airmen that have stood up to defend our country.
The NFL owners tell us they respect the player’s right to exercise their free expression. I use the term “free expression” and not free speech because the majority of the kneeling players are too ignorant to articulate a cohesive speech except by the use of cliches. The supposedly college educated members of Pro-Football, it is determined, are educated to the 8th grade level.
We realize this instinctively when we hear them being interviewed on the sidelines, or watch as they raise a leg doggie style on a goal post to signify their status in the pack, and Americans are starting to realize that pro-football has turned into a side-show of muscled freaks, each trying to out do the other with their dancing skills in the end zone to the screaming cheers of their team fanatics. As we watch we determine, to ourselves, that while the antics we see may be stupid, even outrageous, they are no longer unexpected. The reins of restraint have been loosened and the flood gate of sub-cultural habits are pouring out. It is becoming the new norm.
Why has the NFL and the NFL Players Assoc. donated millions to the leftists political organizations like the Center for Community Change, a George Soros group, and the Leftist “Working America” that is devoted to bringing down the Trump presidency? I’m just asking. Shouldn’t you? Why are our high cost entertainment dollars being spent to help topple a government? Is it because the Progressive Left still believes they will return to power and will need spectacular games and ignorant gladiators to keep the citizenry happy while the world collapse around them? Yes indeed, a maelstrom is coming!
And, the basis of their alleged complaints lies in what happened 150 or so years ago when blacks were actually slaves. Today blacks, who are not slaves and never were, well, at least until LBJ’s War on Poverty under 1964 Civil Rights Act, want to fight whites who were never slaveholders over Confederate symbols that were created by Democrats. So, what’s the NFL’s role in this business? I believe it’s white guilt by white team owners not wanting to injure the feelings of their ignorant slave/gladiators, by giving in to their claims of “Team Unity,” and I have no idea where that comes from. When white players join them in “taking a knee” in disrespect, it’s because they’ve been intimidated by the taunts of “Racism, and white privilege.”
It is for this reason we see the positions, once solely occupied by skilled white players on majority black teams, quickly declining; why coaching staffs are turning darker and why more broadcast booths are filling with fashionably suited black game prognosticators telling viewers what they just saw. It’s a happy facade. It’s in your face racism and it’s not whites doing it.

What We Learn From Polls
Beware the pop quizzes the various internet sites ask of its readers. I personally like to consult Bob Livingston’s Personal Liberty site where they ask a serious of ‘loaded’ questions requiring only a “yes” or “no” answer, without qualification. For example, today’s series of questions were:
1) Is President Trump mentally fit to serve? Yes or no? Of course he is and he demonstrates it daily. He’s running circles around Congress, putting them into positions where they have been legislatively moribund in their decision making abilities, not wanting to threaten their financial supporters. Add in the treachery of six Republican Senators, John McCain primary among them, the wailings of the deranged media and the question becomes, just who is mentally fit?
2) Should President Trump have kept Steve Bannon on board at the White House? Yes or No? He could have, but Bannon best serves Trump from the outside where he promises to attack all Deep State Republicans for removal, which brings us to the next question…..
3) Is the GOP headed for major upsets in the 2018 midterms? Yes or No? Yes, but it will not be the Democrats replacing feckless Republicans, it will be candidates from the Conservative Tea Party side of the Republican party. Democrats are going all in for Marxism. That won’t do!
4) Is Trump’s attack on NBC an assault on their 1st Amendment Rights? Yes or No? The President has a 1st Amendment right to defend himself just as NBC enjoys a 1st Amendment to promote Democrat propaganda against him. It’s a two way street, isn’t it?
5) Does a gun registry threaten the 2nd Amendment? Yes or No? It certainly does. A registry, as we saw in Australia, permitted a rogue socialist government to arbitrarily seize all citizens guns because government knew where they were located. Australians are now being overrun by street criminals, with guns, and violent muslims pushing the envelope of their silly demands.
6) Is Roy Moore the beginning of a broader conservative revolt in the GOP? Yes or No? Of course he is. Despite Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s throwing millions of NRC donations in support of his picked candidate, and the Administration’s support, Moore won. It’s a start.
7) Should the U.S. launch a military strike on North Korea? Yes or No? Not peremptorily. South Korea is in the way. It should be their decision, unless NK launches a first strike. We can push them though, by shooting down their next test launch missile.
8) Should bump stocks and similar devices be banned? Yes or No? The question now is should they be seized? Stores have sold out and one can be fashioned by any home grown fabricator of which America is gifted with a vast rich pool. Full automatic weapons are illegal to possess without the hard to get ATF tax stamp. Another law will do nothing to stop violence with guns,…. or knives, or hammers or cars, for that matter.
9) Time for Nancy Pelosi to retire? Yes or No? A silly question, isn’t it? Absolutely not. For the GOP, Nancy is the gift that keeps on giving.
10) Will the GOP establishment sabotage Roy Moore? Yes or No? Yes, they’ll try but, it will only serve to confirm what voters everywhere already know, draining the swamp will not be complete until the establishment GOPer’s are all swept away too. That’s my view. What’s yours?Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em. (16Oct17)
