America. Where I come from.

Leaders don’t lead from the back or check the wind and adjust to which way they think it is blowing.

Leaders lead.

It is understandable that some in America aren’t sure anymore what ethical leadership looks like.

After twenty-four years of Clinton, Bush, Obama, the appearance of “leadership” hasn’t been seen in almost three decades.

So let us be clear.  Leaders don’t join groups.

They create a vision and move forward regardless of support.

Real leadership is driven by ethics and ethical people don’t meet “in the middle”.

How does one meet La Raza in the middle?  They think they are the RACE.

How does one meet Black Lives Matter in the middle? Wait until they attack more cops and then grant them pardons?

How does one meet CAIR in the middle? Allow the continued murder of homosexuals as long as they stop beating women?

How does one meet the Klan in the middle? Offer pink sheets, fire retardant timber, and a dental plan?

This is America and we don’t meet evil “in the middle”.

Never have never will.

At least we don’t where I come from.

You see where I come from we don’t wear onesies or vaginas.  We listened to the Material Girl but even back then we all knew she wasn’t like a virgin or sane.

Apparently Papa didn’t Preach enough.

We’d heard of Meryl Streep but back then we called her Jane Fonda.

Where I come from citizens wore guns on their hips, not concealed in the least, and if you had a truck, you had a rifle in the rack, and nobody cared or got shot.

I personally wasn’t much into guns or knives.  It’s hard to carry one when you are constantly swinging a bat but my younger brother and I used to stalk deer in the mountains to see if we could get close enough to touch them.

Almost did a couple of times.

Where I come from if we catch you beating a women, well let’s just say, Allah isn’t going to help you.

Neither will Sharia.

Where I come from if you think you are a special RACE, well let’s just say it won’t be our first rodeo in dealing with evil, but trust me when I say this, you won’t be able to handle the bull or the horns.

Where I come from if we catch you attacking cops, well let’s just say, justice will come swiftly and without mercy, prejudice or pardon.

Finally where I come from if you start wearing sheets on your head, well, we call you Democrat and have been doing so since you voted to keep slavery.

If you burn crosses we call you Democrat and have been doing so since Margaret Sanger wanted to abort all black and poor children in America.

If you give eulogies for a Klan member we call you Democrat and have been doing so since both Hillary and Barack covered Robert Byrd in warm words.

If you give money to our enemies we call you Democrat and have been doing so since Clinton and Obama gave millions if not billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and Iran.

You see where I come from we don’t suffer fools even if they played Forrest Gump.

Where I come from we don’t coddle traitors even if they think the Thunder Rolls.

Where I come from Fidel and Che are murdering, rapist thugs, Christians and Jews aren’t the problem, and women don’t brag about having abortions.

Where is this place you come from Jason?

I’m glad you asked.

I come from the United States.

I have had the privilege of being part of a citizenry that is known far and wide for two things.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

I will borrow from a newly minted twenty-first century poet.

“We aren’t coming to take part.  We are coming to take over.”

There will be no middle ground.

No negotiation.

There is no race, only a People.

We are the People and go by only one name.

American.

No middle ground found here.

It’s time to remember where we come from and who we are.

You are either an American or a Democrat.

Can’t be both.

We say grace and ma’am and if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

Liberals continue to scream about the loss of Democracy and most Republican politicians mimic this belief.

Is it any wonder we are where we are?

If a physician prescribes aspirin for your heart, a blood thinner, and you instead decide to eat donuts every morning, one shouldn’t be surprised when they are clutching their chest and screaming for someone to call 911.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again.  The United States is a Constitutional Republic.

A Constitutional Republic is a Freedom based model.

Democracy is the slide away from Aristocracy, Timocracy, and Oligarchy into Tyranny.

This is called Socratic Theory.

Liberals in both Parties have either never heard of Socrates or think they are smarter than the man Western Philosophy refers to as its Father.

My guess is at least ninety-five percent of Democrats in Congress cannot explain Socratic Theory in its simplest form and if they cannot explain it then what does that say about their constituency?

In this day and age being a registered Democrat is proof enough that one is Anti-American.

That’s a pretty strong statement Jason some will say.

If strong means accurate then you would be correct.

To be an American means to cherish Freedom.

The United States has been colored or described many ways over the last two plus centuries but at the forefront is always Freedom.

Individual Freedom.

Now we are inundated by the masses or group think.

CAIR, La Raza, BLM, Sanctuary Cities, and Climate Changers are all Democratic groups.

If a lie is repeated enough it becomes part of everyday life.

Notice I didn’t say it becomes true.

Lies regardless of repetition are still lies and create false premises in the minds of the weak and unstable.

An example of this was found this week, on a television talk show, I happened upon while on my way to watch highlights of MMA, otherwise known as one of Meryl’s favorite sports.

I’m surprised Streep and Kaepernick haven’t come together to form the “diversity coalition” known as deaf, dumb, and kneel.

I digress.

The aforementioned talk show topic pertained to a “writer” who had apparently needed a plumber.  When the plumber arrived he had a “southern accent” and because of this the “writer” created a story in his own head that the plumber (who’d been invited to the man’s location and was quite pleasant according to the “writer”) was probably a Trump voter and thereby dangerous.

Due to no facts whatsoever the “writer” became afraid that the man with an accent was going to hurt him because, again, he perceived him to be a Trump supporter.

Liberals.

Can’t live with them…don’t want to.

I’m not sure which is more pathetic.

The usage of stereotyping, the outright bigotry, or this guy admitting to being the biggest puss in the world.

I mean come on already Sally.  Just step to the side.  Your participation EBT card and rent controlled voucher is on its way.

I still think the crushing debt in America is our greatest danger but gaining ground quickly is the continuing procreation of the Liberal man and woman.

In order to save our Republic we may have to create a new fund.

We can garner proceeds by asking Americans at each election to donate a few dollars to go towards birth control for all Liberals.

This should be in triplicate mode if economically possible as we know Liberals struggle with the concept of having intercourse without Planned Parenthood Protection.

Who’s down with PPP?  A little Naughty by Natcha but not cuz I hate cha Progressives.

Americans don’t hate whiny little men who need a baby wipe because a plumber with a drawl said y’all.

“We pity the fools” besides we know what they are.

They are the supporters of Castro and Guevara or said another way Adolph and Osama.

The only difference between Fidel and Che and the Chief Nazi were Panzer tanks and a general named Rommel.

The United States is filled with men and women born and bred from the courage of Bunker Hill and Lexington.

Omaha and Normandy Beach.

We give thanks, “say grace and ma’am and if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn”.

Courtesy of an American.  Last name Williams first name Hank.

Now head back to your toilet that the American fixed and try standing up when you tinkle Sprinkles.

It’s better for the spine…not that it’ll matter to you.

Dear President Trump

Dear President Trump,

Finally the day has arrived.

The United States will remove a community organizer and replace him with you.

A Billionaire.

A man who once boasted of drug and alcohol usage while telling children marijuana is the same as drinking beer is being replaced by you.

A man who has reportedly never done drugs or consumed alcohol and believes marijuana is a detriment to society.

We are replacing a man who encouraged illegals to vote, against us, with you.

A man who has guaranteed a “beautiful wall” and the removal of all humans here illegally in America.

We are replacing red lines, insurance lies, and leading from behind, with you.

A man who has created wealth, promised to repeal the ACA, and understands leaders are found at the front.

You once stated that our military needs a Patton.

While this may be true, more importantly, a Patton is needed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

We need you to understand that your Army is us, the American People, and we are ready to go to work!

We need you to understand that we are done playing defense.  We are done with both political parties.  We are done with the lies.

We aren’t interested in Hope and Change now known as Nope and Deranged.

We expect results and as such you were hired.

Don’t bother with the Press.  The old way of moving information is over.

Your Twitter account is more powerful than all the newspapers combined.

It’s time for you to understand the Power of the Pen, and to elevate thousands of American voices and writers, who not only are defending you, but put you in your current position.

Through Twitter and Facebook America has been pushing the pen in hopes of keeping the sword in the scabbard.

You have a very real opportunity now to elevate such voices and allow us to deal with the traitors and liars.

There are plenty of things that need doing.

Debt restructuring (Ross), Military rebuilding (Mattis), and Common Core removal (DeVos) are absolutes that will take a little time.

This we understand.

You were overwhelmingly elected on two issues.

Border security and the repeal of Obamacare.

In that order.

Both of these things can and must happen in your first thirty days “on schedule and under budget”.

This will set the tone in the reclamation and restoration of the greatest country in the history of man.

There will be times in the next year where your position as President may get very lonely.

Never forget we are here as your greatest asset and ultimately your only firewall.

Free the People.

We will take care of the rest.

God has blessed you in many ways Donald J. Trump.

None greater than the privilege of being an American.

To whom much is given much is expected.

We have great expectations of you and for you.

Congratulations President Trump.

The future is now.

NOW.

Variety and Spice?

In high school I crushed baseballs with a 34 inch 31 ounce Easton Black Magic.  She was a beauty.  That bat hit baseballs, golf balls, Wiffle balls, Wiffle golf balls thousands if not tens of thousands of times.  Batting cages, batting practice, tee time on the field and hours at home to perfect my swing so the same motion arrived every time.  I would have used that bat forever but there came a day when it finally succumbed to the pressure and broke.

Yes aluminum bats do break.

It was then and only then that I went looking for a new bat.  Not a replacement.  A replacement implies what you have is working but not quite to your satisfaction.  I was more than satisfied but in order to actually play baseball one does need a bat.  I used a wide variety of sticks until I found another Easton while playing for a semi-pro team one summer.  The owner of the team gave me the bat at the end of the season and it was used until my college career was finished.

To him I am forever grateful.

My truck is over ten years old.  Runs perfectly.  Of course maintenance (personal responsibility) is required to keep any vehicle humming along.  I know of individuals who have purchased cars in the past that come with all the new technology.  One of those vehicles had to be returned twice and then finally returned permanently all the while my truck keeps getting older…and better.

I don’t know how long I’ve had my cell phone. Quite a while I am sure.  While Christmas commercials were showing new phones allowing virtual reality, my phone kept on answering calls, delivering text messages, playing music, and of course allowing me to communicate with my wonderful American Brothers and Sisters.

Successful people have routines.

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

“Ah Jason” some will say, “you don’t know what you are missing” or “variety is the spice of life.”

Variety and Spice.

Two reasons Americans have been married and divorced so many times.

Variety or maybe Spice may also be the reason men and women in their fifties and sixties are experiencing a new outbreak of sexually transmitted diseases.

Oh come on Jason everything in moderation.

A little bit of crack?  A small amount of heroin?  A touch of penicillin? Can one be moderately pregnant?

Moderation otherwise known as rationalization in today’s America.

Let’s stop the “moderation”.

Figure out what actually works and then do it over and over.

No, rolling joints isn’t what I had in mind.

Let’s stop the excuse making and “middle of the road thinking.”

Roads have two intended directions.

Only an idiot drives down the middle.

No more “reaching across the aisle” or attempting to be “equal”.

There isn’t anyone reaching in return, and if they are, their idea of equality is to improve their position by lessening yours.

Besides there are too many in Hillary’s Village for us to carry.

Thanks to Clinton and Bush the Jones’s lost their houses and cars years ago.

Thanks to Obama they probably still have their cell phones but then Schultz’s Starbucks app has to go somewhere.

Starbucks:  A place where one is always welcome loaded as long as they aren’t carrying.

Twenty four YEARS of Clinton, Bush, and Obama has sedated, medicated, and procreated an incredible mess that appears to be the norm across these United States because it’s all about ME as the “progressive” part of multiple generations belly up to the trough awaiting their slop and opioid fix.

Is it any wonder people are assaulting each other while standing in Christmas lines at WalMart or Target?

There’s only so much tryptophan and “purple drank” one can handle.

Nothing quite like thousands of people lining up for five televisions on sale.

I’m not sure what is worse.

The rationalization that allows someone to step on another’s head while searching for a Luke Skywalker toy figure or the beauty of laying hands on the new Barbie while tearing at each others clothes.

May the Force Be With You.

I recently watched video of a woman at IKEA being restrained by security who had a frying pan shoved down the back of her pants.

Yes you read that right.

A FRYING PAN.

Would this be Variety or Spice?

Even more disturbing was her lack of planning as the “pants” she’d decided to “wear” were falling down as her back up “thong” screamed in pain trying to hold this entire mess together.

“Fabrically” speaking, there was no collusion, but quite a bit of delusion, on behalf of the assemblage.

This situation roared “moderation” as well as repudiation, consternation, and possibly constipation while begging for a trench coat.

Hillary’s Chairman Mao attire would have fit this setting perfectly.

Get that villager her prize!

This upstanding citizen even mentioned she wasn’t worried about the crime she’d committed because it was a “misdemeanor”.

She understands misdemeanor but struggles with the concept that pans go on stoves…not down her shorts.

Probably a Meryl Streep fan.

Definitely a “soul of moderation” driving down the “middle of the road”.

The Death Spiral known as the Democratic Party

Recently an article hit the internet proclaiming the life span of some Americans to be growing shorter.

Eight years of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid cocktail coupled with a Ryan/McConnell chaser can do that to a person.

Of course it is easy to take shots at evil and cowardice.

What isn’t easy is its removal.

It should be.

It really should be.

I’m having a Sally Field flashback.

Sadly the aforementioned names have more in common with the DNA of a cockroach than a human attempting to Be.

Why is this?

The need to belong is only surpassed in importance to survival by water, food, shelter, and security.  (Abraham Maslow)

In that order.

With those needs met the human animal will seek somewhere to belong.  When an appropriate atmosphere isn’t found an inappropriate one will be chosen.  Some will point to young kids joining gangs.  Although possible the more likely need being met by these kids is their need to be secure or even food and shelter.

A better example are the supporters of Bernie Sanders, La Raza, Black Lives Matter, etc.

The individuals making up these groups are devolving rapidly in regards to the Homo Sapien species.

That seems to be a harsh statement Jason.

It isn’t harsh at all.  It is true and one of the reasons Americans aren’t living as long anymore.

When one stops requiring facts everything after that is a mess someone else will have to endure and probably clean up.

Then again if the pace isn’t quickened in parts of Detroit, Mother Nature will shoulder the burden, as I have personally witnessed.

Any house built on a weak foundation, or no foundation at all, will always crumble, usually wreaking havoc on other individuals who are in its proximity.

BLM members make statements like hands up don’t shoot (a lie) or facts don’t matter when it comes to race.

To critically thinking evolving humans, facts are the only thing that matters, regardless of the subject.

La Raza followers scream about “racism” and bigotry while calling themselves “The Race” in Spanish.

These are the kinds of minds that would load six bullets into a six shooter and then play “Russian Roulette”.

“Some Americans aren’t living as long.”

No kidding?

Forty years of obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, crushing debt, sexual promiscuity, and the rise of government programs will shorten the span of life?

Really?

Yes really.

Of course millions seem to not grasp proper nutrition, sleep, work, exercise, a sober mind and individual responsibility are the catalysts to evolution and longer life.

How do we know this?

Bernie Sanders still has followers, Bill and Hillary Clinton still have freedom, and Keith Ellison wants to run the Democratic Party.

An atheist who believes women fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three men endorsed a criminal whose husband has actually raped women. This trio is being joined by a man who called for black humans to have their own land where peaceful whites would be allowed.  Aside from the peaceful whites there is a place like this.

It’s called Liberia although I’m not sure if they would welcome a Sunni Muslim with open arms due to an issue called slavery.

These four aren’t the problem.

They are symptoms.

The problem lies in the lack of common sense, courage, and compassion found in their followers and their unwillingness to search out and find appropriate situations in which to belong.

Getting high, sleeping around, and wishing they’d had an abortion isn’t going to do it.

Socrates was right.

Democracy does lead to Tyranny.

I guess the good news for the Democrats is they won’t be living as long.

2017 has arrived

A new year is upon us.

Once again America will experience “change”.  Let us “hope” this proposition will be a positive one.  At a bare minimum the addition by subtraction model will reward these United States as the removal of Obama will immediately pay dividends to the spirit and the soul to those who have both spirit and a soul.

The addition by subtraction model is always a favorite at the beginning of a new year as well.

Subtraction of weight, alcohol usage, and debt are just three things that having less of increases happiness in many cases.

Of course the removal of all liberals from our lives might be an even healthier option although I guess that could also be construed as the repeat of the removal of weight.

Dead weight that is.

Many will make resolutions to clean out closets, garages, or storage units with hopefully positive outcomes.

The concept I would like to discuss today is the removal of all the “noise”.

While we organize, adjust, and feng sui our surroundings we are forgetting our most important asset.

Our minds.

The human body is a collection of electrical currents that is regulated by numerous things including our glands (thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary) and muscles.

Muscles actually have “memories” allowing for positive and negative communication throughout the body.

For this column positive and negative will be used specifically as actions that either release endorphins or release adrenaline.

For anyone who likes to exercise at certain levels or has engaged in certain lengths of laughter an endorphin “high” is very common.

Adrenaline on the other hand releases into the body when a “fight or flight” moment arises.  Again for anyone who has experienced an adrenaline “dump” they know full well how the body responds (freezes) when it isn’t dispensed.

I personally have experienced both the release of endorphins and the release of adrenaline at different times through simply the power of thought.

Many won’t realize it but anyone reading this column has too.

The noise created in the media is nothing compared to the noise we create in our own minds on a second to second basis.

We even do this in our sleep through dreams.

There is an idea called Minimalism that has been around for a long time.  The concept is the removal of unwanted things that are clogging up our lives.

Rather than attempting to minimize our minds by trying to figure out what to remove let us maximize our minds and focus on very specific things that benefit our lives, the lives of others, and the culture of Freedom.

In business, as in life, not growing is regressing.  Let us not focus on the “noise” anymore and concentrate our endeavors towards individual monumental specifics disallowing the gathering of chatter.

Rolling stones not only gather no moss they create actual momentum.

The individual American who believes in Freedom and requires the Truth is the most powerful species on the planet.

With that power comes responsibility.

The world is a mess.

Let each one of us be the pebble that thrusts itself into the pond creating wave after wave of energetic, excited, ethical behavior.

Clear minds laser focused on two things.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

Happy New Year.

We have work to do.

Let us get to it.

Three hundred and sixty four more

I’ve always enjoyed Christmas especially as a child.  Most of the time the weather was crisp and on a few occasions snow arrived.  Throughout my childhood and adolescence the days surrounding Christmas were spent playing Wiffle Ball, basketball, and when we had enough players, football. Christmas music has always been a favorite of mine.  Silver Bells is probably my favorite song.  Pie of all kinds, turkey and mashed potatoes, and fudge were all I really needed… or wanted.

Christmas morning was fun as a child, awakening early with my younger brother and quietly tip toeing out to the tree that seemed to magically transform overnight.  One year we received a gift to share that both shocked and delighted us. Two little boys stood frozen in front of the tree in our pajamas and stared at the small black and white television with its own antenna marked “From Santa”.

That television stayed in our family for almost thirty years.  Through moves, theft, and accidents the little black and white gift (that had a metal hanger in place of the original antenna) was finally moved on to spread joy to another family as it was donated to the Salvation Army.

On another Christmas morning my brother and I am snuck out of our room and oohed and aahed over the lights and presents that miraculously appeared overnight.  After digging through our stockings we moved towards the tree and spent the next ten minutes trying to figure out what the large wooden box-like contraption, with a square cut in the front, was.

We finally gave up and were told later that morning, to our disappointment, it was a puppet holder for puppet shows.

Puppet shows? Who was going to do them?

We were told we were.

My brother and I looked at each other and grimaced.

No way was that happening.

Christmas for me is, has, and always will be about the children.

One child as a matter of fact.

The birth of Jesus is celebrated differently around the world and means different things to different people.

For myself Christmas is a celebration of life, of love, of joy.

It has always been the one day that could be counted on to provide peace if only for 24 hours.

The appreciation and kindness of and to others, or as the message a baby, would eventually bless us with.

Love God.  Love one another.

Now the world just needs 364 more days like this.

Merry Christmas to all.

Let our present be our presence.

Hot sauce Clinton, Under attack Williams, and Felon Fattah

These days most of the headlines on the internet have no value.

The actual columns are worse.

Nothing quite like the press, who got everything wrong during the Presidential election, trying to explain how things “went down”.

These jokesters all want “street cred” these days.

Maybe a bottle of hot sauce will do it.

Oh wait.

I said that wrong.

Maysbees a b-dizzle of ho sizzle be da bo shizzle.  Aighttt!

Pardon me for a moment while I regroup.

I’m pretty sure I just died a little bit inside.

We could give the press the answers to the test and they’d still fail miserably.

Then again who am I kidding?

Figuring out how to obtain a picture ID appears to be too hard for the Progressive crowd let alone procuring a number two pencil.

I can hear the liberals now.

I demand a number one pencil!

I deserve it!

Damn straight home slice.  Here’s your number one pencil.

We call it a participation trophy.

According to the media and Barack Insane Obama, aside from salsa in her purse, Hillary lost because of a typo, Russia, the FBI, and a “white lash”.

Van Jones is begging for a new name.

How about Huffy?

There is no way that man should be driving anything with four wheels.  He’s a walking talking medical marijuana/texting accident waiting to happen.

What Hillary really needed was the right speaker to explain her problems.

Cue NBS, MSNBS and Brian Williams, as only he really knows, what she felt like to be under fire, without actually being under fire.

The talking heads on television continue to report such ridiculousness they don’t even anger me anymore.

Donald Trump has gone from Hitler (too many sources to list) to JFK (Bill Gates) in a little over a month.

Doth care for a morsel of credibility?

I recently read a headline about a college professor telling students they couldn’t use the words illegal immigrant.

Is it any wonder too many kids these days have no concept of reality.

With “teachers” like this, and Obama’s usage of a selfie stick, maybe we should tell the kids to simply get lost in their phones for the next few months until we can replace the constant intellectual carnage inhabiting our halls of “higher learning” especially in California, Colorado, and Washington, or from a surprising acronym perspective, CCW.

Of course this particular molder of minds, or maybe just a creator of mold, stumbled into the truth through no effort of their own.

The “professor” is actually right.

Immigrant implies legality.

To put illegal in front of it constructs an oxymoron, is factually wrong, and smears humans who have done the right thing and followed the law to arrive here legally.

The proper term is criminal and even the liberals know this otherwise they wouldn’t be begging to “pardon” hundreds of thousands of CRIMINALS nor would a pardon be needed.

To be “fair” to the progressive degenerative mind, they do not seem to care, which laws are broken.

Communists never do.

They want Hillary pardoned as well for any and all crimes she has or may have committed.

Nothing quite like “diversity” coming full circle.

After eight years of the Obama Error, his former Secretary of State, her aids, a Weiner, and millions of humans illegally in America all need a get out of jail free card.

Another comment crossed my path this week.  As I don’t remember it verbatim I will paraphrase.  A reader of our weekly columns commented that they had to unfriend someone because their friend said facts don’t matter when it comes to race.

My guess is facts don’t matter to this lost soul regardless of subject matter which leads me to my next thought.

It is well past time to face reality.

Humans are not created equal and multiculturalism is costing lives.

Of course those with weak minds will immediately attach culture to skin color.

Wrong.

Culture has nothing to do with skin color, food, music, dancing, language, etc.

Caloric intake is required to survive.  (Maslow)

How one does that isn’t “culture”. (Common sense)

Music is based on sound or the tympanic membrane inside the ear canal reverberating back and forth.  Musical notes, chords, tones, or keys are universal.  A, B, C, D, E, F and G can be heard by virtually every human on the planet.

Sadly there are some who cannot but this isn’t a culture either.

The way people dance doesn’t create culture.  Whether it’s choreographed to benefit the eye or Elaine Benes from a Seinfeld episode is irrelevant.

The physical movement of humans is universal and innate.

We also call it learning to walk.

Language has never been “culture”.

Before Homo Sapiens started using pictures, symbols, imagery, characters, or letters, communication still occurred using grunts (a form of music depending upon your talent or lack thereof) and hand gestures (a form of dancing. See aforementioned talent).

Skin color has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with proximity to the sun over tens of thousands of years and even on a minute to minute basis.

My time spent in the sun will change my color from a freckled collection to a redness followed by an increase in the collection of freckles.

This changes my interest in being in the sun but not my culture.

Culture is the basis for the rest of society.  It is the one factor that all things are derived from.

It conditions behavior and drives all outcomes.

We don’t need to be taught “culture”.  We know it instinctively.

The difference in human behavior is the willingness of some to REQUIRE a specific culture and others to ACCEPT a specific culture.

The pursuit of happiness (require) versus the delivery of food stamps (acceptance).

There are only two cultures in human behavior.

Freedom and Oppression.

The faster this is understood the faster knowledge is gathered and can be used properly.

Nazism, Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Tyranny, the Clintons, Bush, and Obama are all states of Oppression.

Constitutional Republic, Capitalism, and The United States of America, are all forms of Freedom.

This is known worldwide.  It’s why everyone wants to be here.  It’s why being born to at least one American parent is the greatest home field advantage on the planet.

USA equals Freedom.

Cuba, Russia, China, any country practicing Sharia Law, and many parts of the European Union are all living under the culture of Oppression.

Had Hillary Clinton been elected I have no doubt the Tytler Cycle would have restarted on some scale although we may have had to rewrite it by skipping actual bondage and roaring back to liberty.

I know I know.

I just lost 25 percent of the population.

The reference to the Tytler Cycle is for those who have proven they haven’t any knowledge of survival or reality by voting for Clinton.

We continue to be told that more than half of the country voted for Hillary.

This is false.

Almost half the country didn’t vote at all.

Roughly 25 percent voted for the culture of Oppression and the other 25 percent voted for the non politician billionaire.

Three quarters of the country either didn’t care enough to vote for Clinton or hated her so much they voted for the Donald.

Of course one could argue the same in reverse but due to the behavior of the Clintonistas my guess is if the side who voted for Trump decided to “protest” you wouldn’t find us marching in the streets, flying La Raza flags and going one on one with parked cars.

We wouldn’t trash our own cities and send up “warning flares” while chanting lies and giving you time to get ready.

Not that it would matter.

We could warn you all day for a month and you still wouldn’t be able to handle us.

We’d just have to require picture ID and you’d all be in whimpering piles with your bongs muttering something about a Weekend with Bernie and a safe space.

Go ask former Democratic Pennsylvania Congressman Chaka Fattah.

He was just awarded ten years of equality including water, food, shelter, medical, education, clothing, toiletries, and activities.

Liberals call it utopia.

Chaka will call it federal prison.

Fake News

Regardless of the venue these days (internet, radio, television), too many have too much to say that isn’t based in fact or attached to even a semblance of reality.

It is as though the truth has no bearing in today’s society.

The Dems are ranting about “fake news” while enjoying years of the Onion, John Stewart, and Snopes not to mention openly lying to the public (Reid, Pelosi, Obama, the Clintons and Hands up don’t shoot, are just a few examples).

We are inundated with phrases like “free trade” and “crony capitalism” while being smothered in lies such as America was founded on “multiculturalism” or “diversity makes us stronger”.

As I have stated many times there are only two cultures in human behavior.

Freedom and Oppression.

The closer you are to one the further you are from the other.

The political “experts”or “think tanks” continue to crank out new jargon and the “press” repeat it until these amalgamations of verbiage become mainstream garbage consumed daily by the masses like trans fats or high fructose corn syrup.

Can anyone say “fact of the matter?”

It is a matter of fact and as a matter of fact trade isn’t free.

It is also impossible for capitalism (an economic system) to have cronies.

America was founded on Freedom not “diversity” and bigotry doesn’t make anyone or anything stronger.

The political “experts” aren’t, and someone needs to drain the tank, as the “thinkers” have drown, thanks to a lack of ethics.

I have to laugh at the Communists known as the Democratic Party.  They not only change their names faster than a diaper on a new born baby, the outcome is the same.

Both are full of fecal matter.

That’s probably why they do it.  They can’t stand the smell either.

As if that isn’t enough for the Democratic-Socialist/Liberal/Progressive/Pro-Palestinian Party they now want to choose labels for the other “side”.

Alt right is now the new Liberal slander for anyone who isn’t a supporter of CAIR, La Raza, Hamas, or Keith Ellison.

I’m probably being redundant with the aforementioned names.

I should have just said Anti-American.

How did we get here?

Some will argue our decline started with Reagan and his compassionate conservative (liberal) allowance of Amnesty number one and the first version of Obamacare that both took place in 1986.

Others will point to the murder of Kennedy and the rise of LBJ.

A few will push back even further and reference FDR as the tide turned away from rugged Individualism and into the arms of a growing “government” as “Democracy” followed its natural pathway into Tyranny.  (Socratic Theory)

All of these things have taken their toll on America but let us claw back even further.

Let us remind ourselves of a famous, or infamous court case, of which many Americans haven’t any knowledge or have forgotten, a long time ago.

Marbury versus Madison.

For the purpose of this column the inner workings of the case aren’t pertinent so I will make this portion short.

In any court case, one side wants something from the other, that the other does not want to relinquish.

As this was taking place only a couple of decades after the American Revolution, the United States Constitution was still being upheld by its original creators.

The concept of Aristotle’s three pronged governance had morphed into an American Legislative, Executive, and Judicial model (in that order), and as was originally intended, most of the authority and responsibility, was found in the Congress (Power of the Purse, Approval of War, Impeachment (House), Conviction and removal (Senate), etc.).

Although as children we are taught about the three “equal branches of government” the true check and balance was supposed to be between the House and the Senate.  The Executive Branch was supposed to make requests with which the Congress would approve of or not.  The Judiciary, until 1803, did not have the authority to supersede the other Branches.  Some will argue (I am among them) that they still do not have the Constitutional authority and is a major part of the reason we are in our current situation.

This column is specifically written for those struggling with this concept, who continue to repeat the mantra of the elected and appointed oligarchical mouthpieces, whom have usurped power from the People due to the Marbury v Madison decision.

Just because something is believed to be true doesn’t make it so.

Due to this usurpation from the People the Executive and Judicial Branches have become what the Founders feared.

Tyrannical figures.

John Roberts, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, are clearly recent examples of this.

Judicial decisions from an unelected human and Executive orders from those who would be King.

Washington himself warned of too much power at the Executive level, and although the States were united, each already had its own governance in place including Judiciary.

The concept of Decentralized Authority was to protect one State from another while requiring the Constitution, and only the Constitution, be the one shared document that must be enforced.

The “law of the land” and that each State must enforce not interpret nor recognize any other authority.

Again a land of law (justice through enforcement) not of men (selective interpretation).

As Marbury versus Madison unfolded Justice John Marshall wrote the opinion that Marbury had the right to petition the court, but the court didn’t have the authority to force the Federal government (Madison) to take action.

One man decided what was “legal” and then gained the approval of three others on the Supreme Court to render a 4-0 unanimous decision.

ONE MAN.

One man, who split multiple hairs, while bouncing back and forth between the concept of the Constitution and the concept of the Law, made a decision, knowingly or not, that opened the door for other men and eventually women to split different hairs in different fashions and render decisions that are not subject to the United States Constitution or even Constitutionally based.

An example of this is the behavior of John Roberts towards “Obamacare”.

The Creators of the United States Constitution, specifically James Madison (Marbury versus MADISON) did everything they could to take the positives from Socratic Theory and create a new system away from Democracy and its eventual decline into Tyranny.

A Constitutional Republic.

With one man’s opinion America was thrust back into Socratic Theory and continued on the path with which Plato attempted to warn us away.

Even worse it appears Marshall attempted to appease by giving both sides a victory and a defeat while ultimately elevating the power of the Judiciary above the other branches.

Marshall created an oligarchy of four that has currently doubled to eight and will soon return to nine.

I can hear the “think tanks” pacing and ranting right now.

You are wrong Jason.

Is that right?

Yes Jason that is right.

We are attorneys, professors, and Constitutional sch0lars.

We know more than you.

Okay then.

While you “thinkers” are wallowing in your own little vacuums of narcissism I will ask for assistance from an actual Constitutional scholar.

Please see the statement below made to Justice Marshall from THOMAS JEFFERSON.

“You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign WITHIN THEMSELVES.”

Just in case Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States was too eloquent for the Constitutional scholars of today I will briefly summarize.

Marshall was wrong.

Because of this decision American jurisprudence has been dominated by “a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which (has) place(d) us under the despotism of oligarchy”.

Socrates gave us a theory.

Plato an explanation.

Aristotle a model.

Madison and company created a new direction to embrace, encourage, and empower the Individual known as American that was then returned to Democracy and ultimately Tyranny by “judges [who] are as honest as other men, and not more so.  Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.”

Despots.

Ask not what our country can do for you rather ask what has been done to our country.

In returning to our original premise, “fake news”, it is apparent to those with clear minds that the rationalization of behavior (Marshall) has always been part of the human condition.  Jefferson himself wrote glowingly of Freedom and Liberty yet owned other humans.  At best this is the height of intellectual hypocrisy and at worst a specimen without a soul.

As the evolution of the human animal took place in what is referred to as Western society each step created a better version of the last.  From Socrates to Plato to Aristotle to Jesus the concept of the Individual grew.  With Locke, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith the movement towards an understanding of Free Will became more mainstream.  Jefferson, Adams, and Madison pulled from these ideas to pen a Declaration heard around the world and a Constitution that moved the planet closer to personal responsibility through life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  Abraham Maslow built upon these concepts and better explained the survival needs of the Homo Sapien while century old words of Shakespeare “to be or not to be” spread the idea of Being Human.

With all things in life each organism is getting “better” or getting “worse”.  Cycles begin and end through winter, spring, summer and fall,  birth and death, sunrises and sunsets.

Evolution of society implies positive growth.

Those with “fake news” need not apply.

Throughout time we’ve been given incredible models and those models became greater in scope because each wave of ethical intelligence required a better way of service to their fellow brothers and sisters.

New systems are needed now.  The evolution of the American is screaming for the next level of consciousness.

Let the Constitution continue to protect America, while those of us who can, push forward into this good night, requiring our presence and time here on the planet be fruitful in practice, beneficial to others, and so spectacularly curious that each of our imprints plant seeds, with which others, will be nourished.

Burning anything in public is against the law

Apathy is sadly rampant in America.

If not for technology, incredible distribution systems, and the giving of money and food through the generosity of the United States taxpayer, millions of Americans and illegals would no doubt starve to death.

In our last election almost half of the country couldn’t be bothered to vote.

Of those who did (roughly) fifty percent voted for a lying criminal/leader of an organized crime syndicate, soon to be indicted.

Return in a year and remember you heard it here first.

Three quarters of the population, too incompetent, indoctrinated, or incapacitated, to realize Oppression was about to consume the greatest beacon of Freedom ever known.

Fortunately the creators of our electoral system understood human behavior and layered in as many checks and balances as they could as long as the Rule of Law was still in place.

It was close.

Closer than most realize.

With seventy-five percent of the population ignoring reality, and tens of millions of illegals requiring reality fit their needs, it is imperative that the American Citizen grasp the concept of the TRUTH.

Let us use a statement made by the President-Elect to explain how many citizens are still willing to be lied to or “wagged by the dog”.

Donald Trump tweeted, “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!”

Pseudo intellectuals, feigners of justice, and the bottom of the barrel (most lawyers) decried this statement as wrong, saying things like burning a flag is protected by the 1st Amendment or my favorite, Antonio Scalia said so.

That’s right.

Antonio.

TRUTH Number One.

The job of the Judiciary (all levels) is to enforce not interpret law and due to the bastardization of our Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branches it is virtually impossible for “legal scholars” to even exist as the concept of the Rule of Law isn’t consistently enforced.

Tens of millions amnestied by Reagan and Clinton, and allowed to congregate again through Bush and Obama, provide a stark and very visible reality of rampant selective enforcement of law.

Laws only matter when enforced for all.

Scalia was wrong as were the other four simpletons who “interpreted” rather than enforced.

The 1st Amendment protects certain things.  Speech is one of these things.

The Constitutional Right of Free Speech is specific.  It affords absolute protection to the American Citizen from persecution or prosecution by all forms of government when a Citizen chooses to speak, write, sing, or even pantomime truth to power.

Of course while Oppression (the Obama Administration) controls the Justice Department, the Free Speech of many Americans continues to be removed or has been removed at the hands of Lois Lerner, John Koskinen, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch but to name a few.

TRUTH Number Two.

The exercising of the 1st Amendment does not allow or legally justify the ignoring or breaking of any other law.

Marching in the streets without a permit breaks or violates multiple laws, codes, etc., in every county, city, or town across America.

Burning the Flag of the United States, or any item for that matter, in public, violates many penal codes including potential arson, endangerment charges, and if all else fails, littering.

As citizens we have the legal right, and I would argue duty, to stop crime when and where we can.

The Federal Government has been ignoring or engaging in crime for decades.

Many in America are angry and because of this the pendulum has swung from the “Left” to the “Middle”.

It won’t stay here long.

Americans aren’t interested in coexistence, fair and balanced, multi-culturism, or Sharia Law.

We believe in earning our way, Free Will, Freedom, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

We are done with the tune in, turn on, drop out politicians of the Me Generation.

No more lies, no more drugs, and no more flying flags of other nations in our streets.

The Red White and Blue stands for Freedom and covers our fallen.

Two things real Americans will never let you burn.

Donald Trump is right.

Crime should have punishment and in a just system it does.

This much is a fact.

Actions always have reactions.

Always.

Newtonian Law.

If we won’t let you “tread on it” then burning isn’t even an option.

As sanity is restored to America I feel quite confident specific legislation will occur making any and all forms of desecration of the Stars and Stripes illegal.

Until that time, those of you who feel the need to continue to exercise your Free Will this way, take heed.

The exercising of Free Will works both ways and there are tens of millions of us MORE THAN WILLING to extinguish all enemy flames.

Scamper back to your basements and pray Lady Liberty always waves.

The day She doesn’t guarantees the removal of a lot of things including a “safe space” for you.
