Trump

It appears the political world has decided Donald Trump is a powerful force.  DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus,  among many, have waded in with attacks in the Donald sweepstakes.

“News” organizations such as FOX, CNN, and MSNBC have filled their airwaves with Trump quotes hoping viewers will tune in and boost their ratings.  Of course these same networks using his material attack him mercilessly for his thoughts.

There is terminology for this.

Those of us in the world of the responsible American refer to this as cowardice and hypocrisy.

I’ve been asked quite a few times as to my opinion on the Donald.

My answer is this.

Anyone (especially with 100 percent name recognition) that steps into the fray and tells the truth about our crushing debt and criminal border situation is just fine with me.

But Jason what about his prior “attack” on Rosie O’Donnell?

What about it?

Two adults (one who was on a television show that wanted ratings (O’Donnell)) ranted and raved at each other over the airwaves.  American networks drooled and panted and opened every show with  “breaking news” about the on air cat fight.

Millions of Americans tuned in to see who would throw the next punch.

None of this on any level captured my interest.

But the networks filled their allotted time with this inane banality and eventually America chimed in as well.

The Donald/O’Donnell fiasco became a proxy fight between Conservatives and Liberals.

The Liberals lobbed any and all verbal and probably financial bombs possible at Trump.

He wasn’t just in a “fight” with O’Donnell.

The press piled on as well.

Again, I could care less about any of this drivel and the only attention I paid to this media contrived high school food fight was a small shake of my head passing the checkout counter of any store as it seemed every magazine cover had some comment about these two adjacent to “aliens are about to invade Earth.”

But then something happened.

Rosie O’Donnell threw in the towel.  As much as surrendering had to be grating to her, surrender she did.

The Donald had worn her out.  As bad as both of their behavior was apparently only one of them was willing to go the distance.

As America was tuning out…this situation finally had my attention.

You see someone forgot to tell Donald Trump that Rosie O’Donnell had given in.

She’d cried uncle.  She tapped.  No mas.  No more.

Or maybe someone did tell him and he just didn’t care.

Apparently he’d decided he’d been attacked and the fight wasn’t over until he said it was over.

It seemed for months he continued to skewer her in public (and presumably in private) taking any and all opportunities to pile on.  At first I found this to be a bit much.  The whole thing seemed immature to me, his continuing to throw punches after the fight was over made no sense.

The term overkill came to mind.

He’d come out on “top”.

Just quiet down and let the ridiculousness fade away allowing America to focus on more “important” citizens like a Hilton or a Kardashian.

But it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Trump continued to pound and pound until one day my opinion of what he was doing changed.

Don’t get me wrong.

As a matter of fact (not a fact of the matter) the entire situation was still purely absurd.

Adults calling each other names in public while the press ran around baiting them with “he said this” and “she said that” falls into the category of “are any of them smarter than a fifth grader?”

But as Trump continued on…the Liberals began to shrink away.

As they shrank away he increased his barrage until one day no one stepped up or into the fray on anything Trump discussed.

The Donald gave the Liberals of taste of their own medicine.

In Liberal political terms this is called “scorched earth”.

It worked against Mitt Romney and works very well against their adversaries in general.

Stay on the attack, lie when beneficial to the “cause” and create so much noise and discomfort the other side simply gives up. Gives in.  Cries uncle.  Taps.  No more.  No mas.

War is the continuation of politics by other means (Clausewitz) and although the term “love” shouldn’t be used in this context “all is fair in war”.

The Liberals subscribe to this theory wholeheartedly and have been fighting a war for years now.  The term “Liberal” also includes many Republican politicians currently in office including Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and ones that aren’t such as Jeb and George Bush.

Their panic has begun as into this fray stepped…Donald Trump.

Someone they know is willing to scorch and torch not only the Earth under their feet but his own as well.  He thrives on the drama and when combined with overwhelming name recognition his domination of the ratings driven media was a foregone conclusion.

For some people this is a return to NBC’s “must see TV” (no Cosby pun intended here).

America has been screaming for someone, anyone, to stand up and do something, anything, to stop the corruption, lies, and overt crime taking place in Washington D.C.

Of course we are here pounding away everyday but currently we don’t have Trump’s name “fame”.

Currently.

For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you are aware our time doesn’t completely arrive until early 2016.

Could the time frame change?  Certainly.

But unless or until it does the only person talking about the real problems in America on a level that is being heard is Donald Trump.

Is he scorching everything around him with his verbiage?

Yes he is.

Is this good for America?

No, it isn’t but something has to be done…and that something…is us.

While both sides are down in the gutter serious Americans with serious minds willing and able to implement new systems and ideas must continue to come together in what will be the ultimate defense of our country, of our freedom.

Trump is right.

The debt and border are crushing us monetarily, criminally, and emotionally.

He has also correctly observed one cannot bring a knife to a gunfight.  So in layman’s terms the Donald brought a “flamethrower” and is moving from left to right and back again hitting anything that moves.

Is Donald Trump the right person to be President?

Probably not.

But as I’ve stated many times when the pendulum swings it never stops in the middle.  The energy gathered swinging from one side always over corrects.

Trump would attempt to run our country as a “business”.  Some believe this is a good idea but in reality it’s only better than what is currently happening or a term we’ve all become familiar with:

The lesser of two evils.

That isn’t what our Constitutional Republic is for and will never work.

Government is never supposed to make a profit and those who point to certain government takeovers in the private sector as positives only show their lack of economic knowledge, complete misunderstanding of freedom, and tighten the proverbial noose around their own necks.

There is a word for a government controlled economy.

The word is Communism.

The only role of OUR government is to serve and protect the individual citizen affording each American the same opportunity to succeed or fail of their own accord.

To pursue happiness to the best of our own ability, dreams, and desire.

To restore freedom the Liberal mindset of government must be removed completely and permanently.

The Donald will never do this.  It isn’t in his DNA to give up control once he has claimed victory.

To return control back to the States.

Back to the Counties.

Back to the people and the individual the Constitution protects.

But God bless Donald Trump.

I absolutely believe he truly loves America.

Furthermore, he is the only one the country can hear right now telling the truth and shining the light on our real issues.

The only one.

There is one thing of which I have no doubt.

The Donald would definitely build one heck of a wall.

We just need the right person at the bully pulpit to make sure that wall says the United States of America.

Not Property of Trump.

A child may lead us

Recently as I finished speaking with an office manager at a local successful business I was asked about my trip to Oklahoma.

“I’m heading out to meet Americans face to face.  We’ve got some problems to fix.”

Behind me a young yet powerful voice resonated through the room.

“Barack Obama hates Americans,” said the voice.

I stood very still and continued to look forward.  I could tell the voice was that of a young girl, probably no more than ten years old.  I thought about that statement for a second.  Barack Obama hates Americans.  Four words from the mouth of a child.

Barack Obama hates Americans.

Is it really that simple?

Barack Obama’s father was a Muslim who despised the USA.  His mother married another Muslim and according to his own book took him outside the country where he spent many of his formative years.  Without regurgitating his entire premise Obama’s story is filled with his fawning over humans whose skin is one color, or practice Islam, and his contempt is very clear for those who don’t fit into this narrow mindset.

But is Obama the problem or the culmination of a small group of humans who used deceit, manipulation, depravity, and the courts to offer (what many now call sheep) a false hope?  An opportunity to cry “Yes we can” knowing those that supported this agenda were grasping at straws, trying to rationalize decades of personal failure that included divorce, drug usage, debt, and obesity while abdicating their responsibility as an Individual and placing their desires in the ever waiting hands of government.

Another comment from a different source was made about Obama.  “When he is gone the press are going to crush him.  They are afraid to do anything right now.”

If the press are so much in fear of what Barack Obama will do to them, the country we know as the beacon of freedom no longer exists.  The importance of a free press is stated very clearly in the 1st Amendment.

It’s right there with the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion, and no Islam is not protected under the 1st Amendment as the United States Constitution was never meant to protect Systemic Human Oppression.

You cannot oppress women and children and hide under the guise of religion.

At least not in America…yet.

I communicate with people all over America on a daily basis.  The one thing everyone has in common is a general uneasiness.  Border security, debt, threats from Islamic sources that the FBI has admitted they cannot keep up with, and a lack of respect for our military coming from the White House are all causing concern, fear, and in many cases rage.

As much as I abhor George W. Bush (and I do) his time as President may be marked as a man who was in over his head and lied to cover his lack of courage and/or intelligence.  But for the eight years the man was in office I never heard an American say “George Bush hates Americans” (no I don’t consider Kanye West an American…he’s a Kardashian) although plenty of citizens said they hated George Bush.

Now of course Obama and his supporters will say this isn’t true.  That his waiting for five days to lower Old Glory to half staff after the murder of our military while almost instantaneously rainbow lighting the White House was just a smidgen of an oversight.

That his using the IRS to persecute and prosecute Americans is all a fantasy.

That access by the American Press to anything Obama related is comparable to “Nixonian” levels.

That Brian Terry wasn’t murdered on the border by a gun put in play by the Obama administration.

That the fictional story about a video causing the attack in Benghazi that played out at his directive by Susan Rice trying to cover up the deaths of Americans including the assassination of our Ambassador was a misunderstanding.

So…is the child correct?

Barack Obama hates Americans?

For those of us who think critically…it is impossible to disagree.

But why?  Why would Obama hate the country that has given him EVERYTHING?

I’ll bet his college transcripts would tell us…if they weren’t sealed.

Furnace and Fire.

To anyone not in these United States, even the oppressors, America is equated with Freedom.

Dictators and tyrants abhor freedom so they in return abhor America. This is something those of us who pay attention understand.

People who practice Systemic Human Oppression such as Communism or Islam, regardless of nation or sect, fear America.

Because freedom can only survive and flourish under Capitalism, America continues to lead the way.  Even when the elected leaders of these United States act like communism, and verbally state Islam, are both woven, into the very fabric of our country.

Of course this is false and they know it.

Therein lies our problem.

Too many individuals in highly elected positions actively hate what America stands for and it is having an incredibly dangerous and harmful effect on us.

It has now become “cool” to bash America. It is become hip to support flag burning. It has become all too common to embrace the illegal criminal while castigating the hard working citizen paying for the abuse being piled on them.

We are being bullied and threatened by our own systems.

The IRS under Obama did target Americans for exercising their 1st Amendment Rights.

This isn’t an opinion.

This happened and is still probably happening.

When the Obama administration puts individuals in our own DHS who have such strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood that they have to be removed, there cannot be any question any more of intent.

When this same individual supports in public Obama’s support for removing States rights and finishes with AllahuAkbar the time has long passed to only defend freedom on foreign shores.

When we allow this behavior it endangers our way of life as again experienced by the murder of our Military in Tennessee.

Enemies of freedom are amongst us telling us they “hate America” or the United States Constitution is compatible with Sharia Law while burning our flag, calling for death to America, and killing our military…on our land!

We even have people amongst us claiming to love America while trying to rip to shreds anyone who will not be silenced.

Of course this is easy to see as both political parties attack anyone coming from the outside who speaks truth.

This is also found in our own families and “friends”.

The Obama Acolytes use skin color, pseudo economics, and lies to create a rage burning in parts of the country who think they want anarchy.

Misery loves company.

Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago.

Calling for illegals to be militant against Americans has been happening for a while.

The Eeyore Ingenues, who are so wrapped up in their own narcissism and pain, don’t understand when a hand is being extended to them. They snap and froth like rabid dogs at anyone or anything trying to fulfill their need to belong to something…anything.

Then we have us.

Those of us who know history and understand human behavior know free societies don’t stay that way because of the “poor”.

It’s the complete opposite.

It’s the entrepreneur, the farmer, the teacher, the veteran that step INTO the fray.

We are being lied to daily.

Taxation without representation has taken place for years.

The debt leveled on us is already too much for the system to bear.

How many more Americans have to die taking pictures while Obama golfs?

How many more donuts will be licked while the American military is shrunk to all time lows while the danger, according to the director of the FBI, is already here.

How many more American soldiers have to die in America at the hand of Islam?

I will go anywhere, any place, any time.

You provide the furnace.

I will provide the fire.

When?

Now.

Community Organizing

Back in my twenties I was a Sheriff’s Deputy assigned to a County jail for a little while.

One day a very rambunctious inmate who’d been caught smuggling items while working as a “trustee” (I know…hilarious) decided losing his privilege of being outside the jail every day wasn’t enough and attempted to stir the pot.

He was one of those guys who’d bullied others his entire life because he was generally larger than the average male…and a lot larger than every female.

Let’s just say this type of guy was one of those guys who, had he been an illegal, would have been released and deported 5 times only to return to hurt Americans and other illegals.

But he was an American so we had him locked up…for a little while.

After all, this took place…in California.

The land of sanctuary cities and strict rights for child molesters and rapists.

The State that keeps building “affordable housing” but not any “affordable water”.

The State that blames the almond farmers for using all the water but ignores the marijuana fields stealing agua on a daily basis.

The State that just had an anti-gun politician incarcerated for…running guns!

Yes this is the State of the Obama and Jerry (Only Flush When) Brown supporter and yes California has the most people (citizens or otherwise) receiving food stamps,  subsidized housing, and “free” medical care in all the land.

Don’t believe the propaganda that uses terms like per capita and then points at Kentucky or West Virginia.

When it comes to a failed debt ridden, public union controlled State that is now letting everything die because of gross mismanagement and over-population…California is the place.

I didn’t even mention the CalPERS State Pension program that is underfunded…while the stock markets are at all time highs.

Get ready for pennies on the dollar State Employees while taxes are being raised on those left in the ever shrinking private sector to pay for those pennies.

But I digress.

The aforementioned inmate was removed from his relatively cushy cell and re-classified into what was called minimum security.  Minimum security was a large room filled with bunk beds that held approximately 50 to 75 inmates at a time.

In comparison Maximum security held two inmates per cell or sometimes just one inmate if the prisoner was dangerous enough.  I remember one time I dealt with an inmate who was covered head to toe with tattoos.

He was in for…I am getting off track.  Maybe another time.

The minimum security inmates were habitual drunk drivers, or multiple misdemeanor criminals like possession of certain drugs, burglary, etc.

Generally no one in this pod had any “arrests” for crimes considered “violent”.

Don’t get me wrong.

First of all I said “arrests”.

Secondly you wouldn’t want any of these pieces of work living in your neighborhood.

But in the “justice system” they were deemed relatively benign.

Classification is very important to a working jail.  If you allow a trouble maker access to a large group of people and that trouble maker is able to get them going in the same direction…well…another word(s) for this is “community organizing”.

As we all know this doesn’t work well…for anyone.

Because the troublesome inmate, let’s call him Tool, was classified incorrectly he had access to over 50 inmates for days that were bored, sleep deprived, and most importantly, belonged to nothing.

Tool decided to use his skills of manipulation, and his willingness to threaten the weaker inmates, into backing him one night.  He’d only been in the pod for a few days but things were quickly getting out of control.  The weaker inmates that didn’t go along were beaten and the rest fell in line.

A radio call went out from the deputy watching over the pod.

“I need backup in B pod.  Having trouble with “Tool”.  Probably need more than one.”

As I mentioned earlier this pod was filled with small time criminals.  I’d walked into the Pod by myself hundreds of times and never felt like I was in any danger.

On the other hand every time I walked into the Max pods I always went in completely aware that any of these guys could be a threat to my life.

As I arrived at B pod, two other deputies were there.  One male, one female.  For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you will recognize the female as “Caitlin”.  (Please no Bruce Jenner jokes.  That was a perfectly wonderful name when I wrote the book and as you will see Caitlin is someone you can count on).

The three of us walked into the pod and Caitlyn told Tool to come on out.  As I looked at him I noticed at least 10 other inmates standing behind him in a show of solidarity and with threatening looks on their faces.

Again, he was told to come on out.

His answer had something to do with having sex with ourselves.

I smiled an unpleasant smile as I watched a couple dozen other members of the pod slowly fan out behind the community organizer.

Now for anyone who’s been in this kind of situation you know order has to be restored.  The inmates literally cannot run the asylum otherwise everyone’s lives are in danger.

The longer the criminals are allowed to be in “power” the worse it is for everyone…this ironically includes those who support this behavior.

Imagine if someone like this ever got to a position of authority where they could do anything they wanted and no one stopped them…well…I guess we don’t have to imagine this.

It’s happening every day.

Now as I stated before I knew this had to be dealt with.  I also knew three on thirty wasn’t going to go very well for the three.

Did we have more deputies on shift?

Yes we had a few but six or seven on thirty or forty still wasn’t going to be pretty…for the six or seven.

This was a habitual problem at this particular jail.

Poor leadership and grossly understaffed shifts.  My verbalization of these issues to my supervisors, including the Sheriff, was one of the reasons I was eventually invited to leave…permanently.

It’s all in the book.

Tool and I engaged in some back and forth.  I will spare you the verbiage.  It wasn’t a bunch of niceties to say the least.  But even though this situation had to be handled it couldn’t be handled in the middle of the room.  Too many others would fall into the gang or pack mentality if I or one of the other deputies went down.

So we pretended to back down while returning to a safer location.  I, Caitlin, and the other deputy slowly walked back to the pod door while engaging Tool in conversation.

His side was a bunch of threats towards me and the other deputies.

Now…this is a crime.

But back then and in today’s society we aren’t willing to deal with anything proactively.

We’d rather wait until a young woman gets murdered on a pier taking pictures with her dad by an illegal alien.

Our side of the chat was getting the three of us back to the door while making the required extraction in the safest possible manner.

He’d been instructed to come out.

Come out he must.

Tool was really feeling his oats that day.

I don’t know if he’d been cheeking his meds and took them all at once, or got his hands on some wicked Pruno, but he was running his mouth like there was no tomorrow telling us what he was going to do to us, how he was going to do it, and naming body parts.

As we retreated to the door he and his group kept coming forward.  His confidence was growing as he thought he smelled weakness.  As I stood right inside the door he was about a step away from me.

Caitlin was outside the door with the other deputy and two more that had arrived.

I looked at Tool and counted at least thirty inmates spread out behind him in a lackadaisical pattern.  It reminded me of a time in my life where a line of kids spread out in front of me with different balls in their hands waiting for a command to fire from a much larger and older bully I was having a problem with because I’d testified in court against his step-dad about a crime he’d committed.

Just like the kids most of the inmates didn’t want to be there but their fear of the bully/community organizer was greater than the unknown so the tension kept building and the one thing we know about convicts is they have no impulse control.

I knew I couldn’t let this happen inside the pod but I also knew order had to be restored.

“Play time is over.  Time to come out.  The longer this takes the harder it’s going to go on your time here,” Caitlin told him.

She was right.

Tool was an out of county transplant.  We were getting paid to house him.  What this really meant was his original county PAID to get him out of their jail.

He could be sent back and have extra time added to his sentence or even be sent to prison.

Let’s just say his retort wasn’t appropriate.  His mixture of incorrect grammar, poor usage of verbs, and lack of auditory punctuation was astounding…and this was before Common Core.

Tool wasn’t the best communicator and definitely not the sharpest in the shed.

After he finished his attempt at sentence structure he threw one of his hands up in the air.

Out of instinct my left arm went up in defense of my face to block his potential strike.

Tool freaked out and threw a lazy right that I stepped under while I grabbed him in a bear hug and lifted him right out of the pod.

It happened so fast his “community” just stood there in shock as I put him up against the wall to hand cuff him.

Unfortunately Tool wasn’t having any of it.

He started flailing around and trying to hit me and the other deputies who were trying to restrain and hand cuff him.  Tool was not a small guy and I knew if I let go of him things were going to get a lot worse.  But before we could control his arms he started kicking the inside of my right knee with his right leg.  His foot missed me the first time but not the second.  I knew I couldn’t let him do that again or he’d bust my knee.  As I tried to get some leverage and protect my knee he kicked me in the other knee.  As all this was happening I could hear the screaming of inmates rushing towards the door.  The air was getting hot as the screams got louder.  Everything in me was telling me to turn around as my back was a wide open target.  In the blink of an eye I will never forget the sound of the woman who stepped into the fray and literally covered my back.   Caitlyn stood in front of me, and the door, screaming at them to get back and for the deputy in the pod to “close the f*&cking slider!!!”

Now that was an appropriate usage of profanity.

I’ve thanked you over the years a few times “Caitlyn” but God bless you sister.

That would have been ugly.

“Tool” was still kicking me on the inside of both knees so I took him to the ground for his safety and mine.  He ended up with a knot on his head (from the floor) and I ended up with a messed up shoulder that to this day will sometimes act up.  Of course baseball could also have been the culprit.  I did throw my body all over the diamond.  Nevertheless two cortisone shots over the years in my Tool/baseball shoulder gets me through the day.

Tool the Community Organizer was re-classified and stuck in Maximum security where he got into more trouble and was shipped back to his home county.

If I had to place a bet I’d put my money on him being in prison or dead.

Ah the life of the Community Organizer.

Locked down…or six feet under.

10 million voices

I believe I was ten, maybe eleven. My family was visiting my aunt and uncle in Lakewood, CA. Standing outside in the front yard with my younger female cousin a voice erupted from across the street.

“Hey Fatso!” I heard.

I looked across the street. Who was this kid talking to? I’d never seen him in my life not to mention I was skinny as a rail. I heard my cousin answer back.

“Just shut up and leave me alone.”

I looked at her as the punk kept calling her names.

“Who’s this guy?” I asked.

“He’s this kid in school who won’t leave me alone. He’s always calling me fat and Miss Piggy.”

Now for those of you who’ve read Late Bird you know I am a peaceful person who HATES two things.

Being told what to do…and bullies.

It wasn’t that I wasn’t scared.

I was.

It wasn’t that I wanted to be the hero.

I didn’t.

I just knew I had to deal with this regardless of outcome to me.

I looked across the street and said, “Leave her alone.”

The bully laughed and said those words I’d heard too many times.

“What are you going to do about it?”

I sighed internally and gave my patented answer.

“Do it again and you will find out.”

Eventually I shortened my go to line with bullies. I borrowed from the Rock.

“Go for it” was shorter and to the point.

The bully decided he could handle the situation and crossed the street yelling profanities the entire way. As soon as both of his feet were on the sidewalk (I’d moved to the sidewalk to engage him. Never let anyone walk up on you in any situation.) I hit him as hard as a 10 or 11 year old could, right in the mouth.

The word “fatty” disappeared back from which it came as the bully fell to the ground crying.

I shook my head wanting to cry too.

Hurting someone isn’t who I am.

If it comes down to them or me…well…I will do everything I can to ensure I will see another day.

It doesn’t mean I will enjoy doing what I have to do.

I don’t.

I helped the bully up off the ground and asked him if he was okay. He said he was.

“Do you understand why I hit you?”

“Yes” he muttered.

“She is my cousin. I’m here every summer (I wasn’t but he didn’t know that)…leave her alone.”

He promised he would and walked off crying.

My cousin, who isn’t fat, went on to earn a masters degree and became a high school principal.

I am 44 years old and unfortunately have had lots of situations similar to this over my lifetime.

This one still bothers me…but it doesn’t stop me from the realization if the defenders don’t stand then more and worse abuse will happen.

We are currently being throttled by bullies who we’ve elected!

Every time a new opportunity arrives we turn our backs and say “yes sir may I have another.”

Enough!!!

There is a better way!

There is a brighter path!

America is the way and Freedom is the path and our message roars louder everyday!

This isn’t the land of Clinton, Bush or Obama.

This is the land of the farmer, the truck driver, the teacher who spends their own money to educate our children!

This is the land of the hardest working human beings ever to exist. This is the land of the most generous, loving, giving people in history.

This is the land of the greatest defenders of freedom ever! The land of the American Soldier! Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the ever present American Militia who take their guidance from two things.

The Big Fella Upstairs and the United States Constitution!

We have work to do.

Some of it won’t be pleasant.

Killing cancer never is and this cancer is pervasive and running through OUR country.

OUR America!

Roughly 600 politicians and judges are dictating to you, to me, to us.

Not gonna happen.

10 million voices.

Join us America.

10 million truth speaking American protectors against 600 lying cowards.

Time to cure cancer.

AMERICA first!

American only!

Shoulder to shoulder.

One voice at a time.

Facebook isn’t a Constitutional Right.

The truth can be an interesting thing. When embraced it can bring strength and peace. I make it a point to write or speak about things that are true. Unfortunately some people simply cannot handle the truth because it doesn’t fit their narrative. Let me give an example. The 1st Amendment guarantees a couple of things. One of these things is the freedom of speech. Many months ago a very troubled soul showed up on my page with a ridiculous rant.

Without having any information at all and having never read my book this person proceeded to rant and rave and lie…about me.

After I blocked him he jumped to my second page. Upon banning him from there he spent time attacking me on Amazon. Apparently that wasn’t enough because he jumped on our new page where I banned him again.

Some people need to get a life already.

If you don’t agree with what I’m saying then write your own book, give hundreds of copies away, spend countless hours communicating with citizens across America, and tens of thousands of dollars.

Of course you will also need to create a new tax plan that will work, (done), an immigration policy that will work (done), and not accept any campaign contributions. This means you will have to pay for all of this yourself.

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Now close your pie hole, crawl back from which you came and have a Coke and a smile!

I’ve had this happen a few times. In the beginning I’ve shared some of the “fan mail” I’ve received. I know as our voice gets louder the target on me will become larger. I actually look forward to this. It’s how we know we are making a difference. If I am never attacked it means no one cares or can hear us. I have two very positive stories about our voices being heard but first I want to finish my point.

One detractor of mine whined that I was violating their freedom of speech because I didn’t answer their written silliness. They couldn’t be more wrong.

The freedom of speech guarantees you won’t be persecuted or prosecuted by the government for speaking out against them.

It has nothing to do with whether or not I will give someone free therapy.

Facebook could remove me at any time and they would not be violating my freedom of speech. They would be unwise to do so because their business plan calls for users and more importantly users who spend money spreading their message (me).

But they could block me tomorrow and it wouldn’t be a violation of the 1st Amendment. The only way it would be is if the government forced them to silence me but even then Facebook wouldn’t be to blame. The government would. Just like driving, Facebook is not a right.

If anyone comes on here and lies, is profane, or attacks me or any of you…they are removed permanently. I am not here for social hour. I am here because the debt has gotten worse and more Americans die or are sold into slavery because our border is wide open. As I’ve said many times if you have people who aren’t beneficial to freedom, and your life, then remove them.

We don’t have time for people who throw around fictional constitutional rights. We have to focus on the very real attacks coming at the 1st Amendment (Lois Lerner/IRS) and the 2nd Amendment. These are very real things. If you think my not listening to you because you lie or deleting you from MY page is unconstitutional you don’t have the good sense God gave you.

Wake up! I want like minds…ten million of them. Not whiny, pseudo intellects who won’t put their names or their money on the line. If you think you have a plan…step up!

Otherwise pipe down small fry. No one cares what you think.

Okay onto the two positive stories. A few weeks ago I was talking to a guy at the gym. We started talking about the debt, the border, and Obama. I told him he should check out our website. When I told him the name he paused and said,”I just heard that website on the radio.” I smiled. When complete strangers are hearing about us we are making difference.

Story two: A fan of Late Bird and our message was talking to some new co-workers during a break. Politics was the discussion and the fan mentioned my name. The co-worker said, “I’ve heard of that guy,” and went to their Facebook page on their phone and scrolled through one of their groups. Finding what they were looking for the co-worker showed the fan of Late Bird a video of mine that was done months ago.

It’s a small world because YOU keep spreading the word. It is you who are making a difference by continuing to share 2,3,4 and sometimes 50 times. It’s working. Great job!

One day, one voice, one American at a time.

Shoulder to shoulder.

This is our country.

Faux News…the only French the “liberal” knows.

Exiting my local gym a few days ago I paused and looked to my left.  A Prius was idling (maybe it was parked, you can’t hear them).  On the back of the bumper was a sticker that said Faux News in big bold letters and in parentheses below (FOX News) in case their attempt at humor wasn’t understood.  I guess that makes sense.  Liberals in general aren’t the funny type.  They are very faux serious.

I started laughing as I walked to my fossil fuel burning, beautiful nine year old, loan free truck.  As I loaded my gear into the back I continued laughing at the absurdity of the Obama Acolyte.

Let me first say I am not a big fan of FOX News.  They have definitely lost their way.  To call themselves fair and balanced and then stack each show with Bush and Obama apologist/propagandists is asinine.  I rarely watch it anymore because they are usually well behind the internet or my personal Facebook news feed when it come to timely factual information.

Of course they are miles ahead of MSNBS who could not report a fact if their lives depended on it.  I will occasionally watch the Morning Joe Show to see how many times the “progressives” (see traitors) couch their words or struggle with facts they don’t want to report.

It’s like watching children eat sour candy with their faces contorting trying to squirm their way through the Obama Administration’s lack of ability to tell the truth.  The other shows on MSNBS don’t even try.  They just open their mouths and let the lies fly.

I’d like to welcome Brian Williams aboard.  He’ll fit in perfectly.  Maybe he and Sharpton can get together and make up combat stories about saving each others lives.  Oy vey!

The reason I laughed about the Prius, Faux News sticker is because…it’s funny.

The electric car may end up being the worst invention ever.

First it still burns…fossil fuels.

Where do these people think electricity comes from?  Captured lightning strikes? Solyndra?

I mean come on already electric car owners. You are driving around in overpriced vehicles that still burn energy coming from coal or natural gas.  In case you weren’t aware…both are fossil fuels or in other words…they come from the Earth.

There is nothing wrong with coal or natural gas.  It’s all in the application.  In fact there are many wonderful things about coal and natural gas.  One of these things is referred to as heat in the winter to keep from freezing to death.

What’s that Prius owner?  You are using less of these things than the rest of us not to mention you get to drive in the car pool lane with only one driver?

The driver part is true…for now.  But here in California you are about to be sent a yearly bill because you aren’t paying enough gas tax for the roads you are driving on.

What?  You weren’t aware of this?  It sounds like a bait and switch?

That’s because it is but never fear Jerry Brown should have a new vehicle for you to head to Bakersfield on soon.  You can trade in your cars and ride the train!

You don’t want to go to Bakersfield?  Well there’s always your bicycle.

Maybe you’ll just keep your car and pay the bill?

Sounds good.

I’m sure driving around in a vehicle surrounded with many batteries running at maximum capacity should be fine.

You are akin to your own little nuclear power plant!  I’m sure that will be great for your skin.

But I do have one question while you’re driving around in your mini Chernobyl giving FOX News free advertising…where do you think all these batteries filled with acid go once they are no longer useful?

I should ask Tesla founder Elon Musk?

I guess I could but why would I want the opinion of someone who is creating moving objects surrounded by acid whose business is largely supported by government grants.  Grants that will disappear overnight along with many electric cars when the 18 trillion dollar debt bubble bursts forcing the State of California to triple your fees because…well hey…they know you have the money.

How do they know this?

Because you’ve been saving it up driving on the roads the rest of us are paying for!

Never fear progressive poindexter.  I am sure your Czar Barack Hussein Obama will come up with something similar to Cash for Clunkers to get your radio-active death traps off the road before he exits stage left to retire in Palm Springs, where the grass is green, while the rest of the State dies from overpopulation and poor planning.

Ah…don’t you just love the smell of progressive hypocrisy in the morning.

Of course we have real issues happening in the world.  Whether someone wants to drive an overpriced Nine Volt around with some French on the back bumper is part of freedom.

Free to be as tuned out to the real world as possible.

Unfortunately freedom can collapse when left unattended and ignored and this ignorance is forcing a collapse in and on America.

The taxation burden being put on the American worker is egregious.

The debt being piled on the American citizen is a crime.

The brutality happening throughout America to women and children because of our open border is unforgivable.

I read hundreds of comments (almost daily) on the internet about taking America back by force.

“America is too far gone.  Voting doesn’t matter anymore.  Everything is so corrupt”.

Fair enough.

This is why we are here.  To provide a better path.  A brighter way.

But before everyone locks and loads why don’t we try it my way first.

Overwhelming movement through social media.

Furthermore I am now ready to travel throughout America anywhere, any place, any time  to deliver my love for America in full throat!

You gather one hundred lovers of freedom together (or more) and I will be there.

No cost to you.

I will pay my entire way to wherever you are.

You gather the voices and we will roar together…in every State in this great Union.

I will never stop.  This about duty not desire.  Our need to belong as humans is primary to our survival.

We BELONG here…in these United States.

Never ever forget…this is OUR country!!!

Ten million voices, three percent of the nation, coming together.

Shoulder to shoulder.

One voice at a time.

Housing by Color of our skin

With Barack Obama readily admitting there is no plan for ISIS, or ISIL, Sunni or Shiite Islam, while sending more American troops to Iraq, the “Do Nothing Congress” (as maligned by uninformed progressives. This Congress has approved Obama’s more than doubling of the debt)  actually stopped (for the time being) the trade agreement known as TPP.

For the first time that I can remember the Democrats in Congress did something with which I agree.  It was the Democrats in the House that shut down Obama’s version of NAFTA.

Let us not get too excited here.

The Democratic Politicians didn’t do it to protect America.

They did it to protect the unions that funnel millions if not billions of dollars back to the Democratic Party and I am sure they will get in line when certain promises are made.

This is also another reason to completely disregard most Republican politicians.

Their constant whining and moaning about Obama (while quietly approving his decisions by funding them) only shows their hypocrisy or lack of ethics by supporting him on a massive trade program that will not benefit America.

Yet continuing to put our military in harms way without a coherent plan, ridiculous rules of engagement AND getting shut down by his own party on a subversive trade program apparently wasn’t enough for the man leading the most “transparent” administration in American history.

Nope.

While the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore was thanking the Nation of Islam, Barack Obama sent a La Raza supporter to Congress.

Yes America.  You are reading that correctly and for all you Obama supporters who don’t want to believe it…it’s all on video for the world to see.

Yes, I do realize some of you may support The Nation of Islam and La Raza’s views as well.

Of course this makes you a racist, misogynistic, homophobic traitor but hey what do you care, right?  What do you care about freedom?

We will remember that when the pendulum swings.

For those of you who are not familiar with these groups, I strongly suggest you educate yourself.

This type of culture (oppression), and humans, are currently in the White House, and no it doesn’t matter if you don’t “agree”.

As has famously been stated many times you are entitled (currently) to your own opinion but you aren’t entitled to your own facts.

Overt racism, sexism, and hidden homophobia reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Now for those of us with any common sense we’ve known this for quite a while.  But it appears this type of sense isn’t so common anymore.

I digress.

The La Raza individual’s name sent by Obama to Congress is Julian Castro.  The Democratic Party has openly stated many times they now want a Latino or Hispanic (make up your mind please Democrats, doubling down on your racism is exhausting) to be in the Oval Office next so they reached into Texas and snatched an “Affirmative Action” recipient (his words) out of San Antonio and named him Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

So let’s get this straight.

A La Raza enthusiast (according to reports his mother founded this hate group) has been put in charge of Housing for America by a man who takes counsel from Al Sharpton (need I say more), and supports politicians who thanked a group who called for the killing of all “blue eyed white devils”.

I wish I was making this up.  But wait this actually gets worse.

La Raza Castro sat in front of Congress with Barack Obama’s “new” plan.

Housing by color.

That is…skin color.

Now I have listened and read many different comments on this about this being racism.

Well…yes it is.

More comments about this being wrong were added. Dropping humans into neighborhoods, providing them free or massively subsidized housing based on the color of their skin and then calling it diversity is idiotic and horrendous.

Yes, yes, and yes.

Where everyone is missing the boat is…this isn’t new.

“Progressivism” reared it’s ugly ahead in the Clinton years as Slick Willie deregulated (yes Democrats that was your hero the sexual predator who did this) Glass/Steagall while forcing banks to loan to humans without white skin.

Loans the banks knew would never be paid.

As this putrid decision started to take place in small concentrated groups that had only one thing in common (they weren’t white) the lid was blown off as the repeal of Glass/Steagall allowed the stock market to get involved.  Pretty soon everyone and their brother were given loans.  They actually created a name for this.  I’ve spoken with lots of real estate people over the years.

They started calling these loans NINJA loans as in No Income No Job.  I believe the A was added to actually complete a real word.  NINJ just doesn’t sound right although I can think of a few words starting with an A that would fit nicely.

So for all of you reading this right now let me be very clear.  Everything in here and every column I write is verifiable, factual, information.  It will take most of you less than ten minutes to search the internet and find all this data yourself.

Of course you actually have to care, Obama supporters.

As Clinton unleashed his racist housing plan the American Housing Boom (see fraud) started.

Progressivism had a new mantra.

The American Dream known as Freedom was replaced.

The new American Dream was Home Ownership as if humans in China, Russia, or Cuba didn’t own houses.

As the reign of the man who struggled with the definition of “is” and interns in general, came to an end, the Progressives handed the baton to the next Boomer in line who feigned concern about racial housing and then jumped on board with both hands allowing it to spread at an even faster rate like leukemia through the American economy and eventually many parts of the world.

The new term the Progressives created was “Compassionate Conservatism”.  The King of CC then launched us into Iraq borrowing trillions of dollars while sending out stimulus checks and telling Americans it was patriotic to spend!

Of course the housing market collapsed taking over leveraged highly politically connected banks with it and the uber wealthy started screaming at Bush threatening him with heaven only knows. Bush caved, bailed out the banks, and the responsible homeowner and taxpayer have continued to be robbed ever since.

Mission Accomplished!

Americans took a deep breath, cast aside Hillary Clinton, closed both eyes, told themselves no one could be as bad as Bush, ignored truth and facts, and elected an overt racist whose own pastor had called for God to damn America (on video) and whose own wife stated the only time she’d ever been proud to be an American was when her husband was elected.

Never mind the defeat of Nazism, the Civil Rights Movement, or walking on the moon.

Nope.

Michelle Obama was only impressed when her hubby was elected.

How droll.

Progressivism stepped right off the cliff and openly embraced racism, sexism, Sharia Law, crushing debt, corruption and anarchy.

Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Oakland.

If you don’t understand that list then I cannot help you.

What we are seeing from Obama, Sharpton, La Raza, etc, is moral and intellectual depravity.  The sad thing is, aside from inflaming the racial aspect, this isn’t new.  It’s come full circle with the Progressives starting with Clinton, through Bush, and currently Obama.

The question we have to ask ourselves now is when do we get off this ride?

I am offering a new way and a brighter path but you have to get involved.  Those of you on Social Security, Medicare, or receiving a pension that the government is overseeing are going to get hit.

HARD.

Yes I know you paid into these things.  But unless and until we stop the borrowing and oppressive taxation on income this is only going to get worse.  For these programs to survive Americans have to be working.  We must abolish all income tax and free the American worker.

Coupled with a consumption tax and closing the border we can survive the nightmare progressives like Clinton, Bush, and Obama have created.

Otherwise none of these programs will survive.

NONE.

The choice is yours.

Freedom or oppression.

This is simple for me…what say you?

All lives don’t matter

Black lives matter.

No they don’t.

No life matters because of the color of one’s skin.

White lives matter.

Nope.

All lives matter.

Wrong.

This is another gift from the progressives in the Boomer Generation.

Everyone is important.  Everyone has something to offer.  Everyone is unique and talented in their own way. Participation ribbons for everyone!

Nil, nada, zero.

This is the reason Liberalism has been such a failure at everything.

Egocentrism.

There are billions of humans on the planet yet a portion of the Boomers (Obama supporters) believe they are uniquely qualified, one of a kind humans.  The mold was broken when they arrived.

They are “special”.

I know this for sure.  Their mold was definitely broken.

Let us “hope” it was thrown away.

We’ve all met these kinds of people or see them driving around with their Obama/Biden 2012 bumper stickers.

Although being here for 5 plus decades living in the freest society ever created they are broke, living on government programs, complaining about their kids, hooked on “medical” marijuana, complaining about their kids hooked on “medical” marijuana…you get the picture.

Rather than spending their productive years earning and saving money and serving America they spent their time tuned out and turned on.  It’s one of the reasons the pharmaceutical companies are making a fortune.  The largest American generation ever is now all over the age of fifty and in desperate need of type two diabetes medications, Xanax, and drugs to deal with sexually transmitted diseases.

Yep you read that right.  STD’s.

I guess this shouldn’t be a surprise as the leader of this cult following is the infamous criminal known as Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton…allegedly. (Yes I laughed when I wrote allegedly.)

If we could have kept this contained, America could have survived the most selfish generation ever, but unfortunately their love of sex, drugs, and Cherries Garcia spread like a cancer through Generation X and even more dangerously the Millenials.

The combination of Clinton, Bush, Obama, has left America not only broke but on the brink of a catastrophic currency collapse.

CBO…got to go.

Don’t believe me?

George Bush and his minions told the entire country if we didn’t bail out the banks the world would come to an end.

Barack Obama stated if the debt ceiling wasn’t raised Boomers on Social Security wouldn’t get their checks, the military wouldn’t be paid, etc.

This is classic narcissism.  The world wouldn’t have come to an end.  Just Bush’s world and many in America who weren’t doing the right thing by supporting themselves, counting on government (taxpayers) to carry them their entire lives.

Barack Obama’s threat was even more egregious.  To threaten to not pay the most powerful military (the only thing backing the American Dollar) is treasonous.

The Dollar isn’t backed by gold, silver, or the U.S government.  It is backed by the bravest of the brave.

The American Military.  Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.

The next time you see a veteran or a current service member don’t just thank them for their service.

You better thank them for our way of life!

They are the only thing backing the dollar.  They are the only thing guaranteeing the value of our money.

The ONLY thing.

Those of you who want to pontificate about this are foolish and do not understand human behavior.  Crawl back from which you came.  This isn’t the Seventies.

You will not spit on our Veterans again.

But what really got the progressive Boomers screaming was the threat to cut off their social security.  “It’s my money! I paid into it!”

How about a reality check.

Unless you were self-employed (I doubt most of you liberals were) you only paid half of it.

The other half was paid by your employer (if you were employed at all).

Not only did your employer pay you a wage but they also paid HALF of your Social Security.  I don’t hear your employer screaming for half of your check.

As stated previously, unless you are self-employed.

I’m sorry Clinton/Warren supporters.  Let me explain self-employed.

These are the people who start businesses that turn a profit and create JOBS.

Yes Obama.  We did build our businesses, that paid the taxes, that constructed the roads and bridges, that communities could be built around, so you could show up as a carpetbagger and “organize”.

But I digress.

If you are self-employed you get to pay both halves.

Early on in my twenties I knew there was a very slim chance I would ever get my social security (socialism) back.

First and foremost I can do math.

Social Security is the ultimate pyramid scheme. (This was one of the few things Rick Perry was aptly able to communicate).

Whether you want to believe that or not doesn’t change the facts.  Nor does it matter what you “big government” or “reparation” mental defects think.

You and your type have crippled the country I love.  The country that has given me the only thing that matters.

Freedom.

Your opinions don’t matter anymore.

My freedom trumps everything about you.

EVERYTHING.

As I’ve said many times let the adults handle it from here.

Have a Coke and a smile.

Returning to our premise requires we ask a question.

Whose life matters?

I am glad you asked.

Is your life benefiting others?  If the answer is yes then your life matters.

If you aren’t benefiting anyone else, or even worse hurting others, then your life doesn’t matter.

How can I say this?

Because if you don’t care about your life…then why should I?

Let’s be clear.

If you don’t…then I won’t.

If you’ve abused children your life is worthless.

If you’ve raped women your life doesn’t matter.

If you believe there are 100’s of virgins awaiting your arrival then by all means…go find out.

All lives don’t matter.

Dunking a  basketball or hitting home runs doesn’t mean your life matters.

Throwing rocks at police, having multiple children with different men or women, or living on food-stamps your entire life doesn’t validate your existence.

Are you taking care of yourself? Is your life beneficial to others?

If your answer to these two simple questions is yes then…

YES.  Your life does matter.

If it isn’t yes then you are just taking up space.

If you are just taking up space then…

You don’t matter.
