YES – Paul Krugman is a Bonafide Moron

While gold slowly moved higher, and the cryptocurrency world careened all over the place, the media decided to focus on the potty mouth of a woman playing a game of which nobody cares, a talk show host nobody watches, and a story in the USA Today about, “Some US women taking their reproductive matters into their own hands. They’re ordering abortion pills by mail.”

So, so close, yet so far away.

Maybe try a condom, or a patch, or something called outercourse, (back in the day I think that was called second base, maybe third) or a wide variety of options available in Yahoo Search under BIRTH CONTROL, or I don’t know maybe try, off the top of my head, taking reproductive matters into your own hands and ordering pills to KEEP YOU FROM GETTING PREGNANT.

I digress.

The media didn’t bother with the reported 15000 Mexican troops supposedly hanging out on our Southern Border with orders to NOT stop illegals from crossing into the United States.

This sentence poses questions and contradictions.

If they aren’t stopping the illegals then why are they there, followed by the surreal statement that Mexico actually has an Army?

When did this happen and what exactly have they been doing since 1848?

What’s that?

They work for the Cartels?

That’s right.

Army must mean Cartel in La Raza.

They are now at our Southern Border to ensure the drugs GET through.

Ain’t NAFTA grand?

What’s that again?

We don’t have NAFTA anymore?

Sure we do.

Trust me when I say nothing has changed. The drug smugglers and human traffickers are continuing to flood our country with both, courtesy of the Liberal Pelosi/Cortez Democrats and the RINO Chamber of Commerce Republicans.

President Trump is doing his best but each morning he must feel like Bill Murray looking for Andie MacDowell.

Speaking of Bill, William Bagpipes Barr has replaced the jaundiced Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions.

Looks like we are getting one blowhard after a mother.

Where are you Waldo?

How long can it possibly take to indict someone who committed multiple felonies, admitted to the acts, apologized for the acts, and then took the 5th in front of Congress?

Her name Willie, is Lerner, Lois Lerner.

Maybe you’ve heard of her.

Barry Soetoro has.

That’s Obama, Billy boy in case you haven’t been able to keep up with his many aliases including Team Leader of the Choom Gang.

Well played Liberals.

You gave us a Shiite (cough, allegedly) with multiple identities, who carpetbagged his way from Indonesia to Hawaii to California to Illinois to Washington while snorting Coke and having his college transcripts sealed.

So strong were his financial bonafides that his Chief Economic Adviser was the man who crippled General Electric, otherwise at one time known as the largest company in the world

Good ol Jeff Immelt as in I’m Melting all the hard work of Jack Welch.

As if that wasn’t bad enough he allowed the firm of Greenspan and Bernanke to continue forward under the name of Janet Yellen and crush interest rates for almost a decade creating the largest bubble in history that will eventually pop all over America and the world.

Frankly if it hadn’t been for Donald J. Trump the U.S.A would right now be at ZERO in-regards-to interest rates and Heil Hillary would be looking to hug Jimmy Hamas Carter, Robert KKK Byrd, and screaming for a “cloth” and another reset button while Putin continued to traipse into “NATO/European Union” territory.

The coup de grace (That’s French Liberals. Where did you go to school? Harvard?) for Barack (or whatever his name is) was the fact that he took counsel from a man who said the United States could simply mint trillion dollar coins and pay our debt back to ourselves.

Yes Paul Krugman, you are a bonafide moron.

Of course both of these hucksters are recipients of the greatest fraud of awards this side of the Oscars known as the Nobel Prize.

Obama For Peace.

Who down with OFP!

I know, I know. Try not to laugh too hard and yes this column is “based on a true story”.

The Nobel “people” later said it was given in hopes of providing him inspiration.

In other words they tied Affirmative Action and a Participation Trophy together while the very “white” Nobel Klan embraced bigotry, err, diversity.

Yeah, diversity, that’s it, diversity.

Paulie Shore Krugman received his PT because of his “explaining the patterns of international trade and the geographic distribution of economic activity, by examining the effects of economics of scale and of consumer preferences for diverse goods and services.”

Let me explain this simply.

Krug Less than a Man theorized about…CAPITALISM!

Give that man a prize, a Nobel Prize if you will.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again these “Nobel” nitwits need to change their names to No Clue and be done with it.

Again, well played Liberals.

Well played.

If that wasn’t enough the Progressives in California have decided in July to raise taxes on gasoline (again) and background check anyone buying ammunition.

It’s very clear they haven’t thought this through.

The raising of the price of gasoline in the SUMMER will guarantee MANY problems.

Making ammunition harder to procure will guarantee at least ONE thing.

Surer shooters with truer accuracy.

I’ve always proffered that rope was the best way to go but the Progressives in the Golden State appear to be trying to again make famous an appropriate Revolutionary War quote.

Do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes.

Of course in the Liberals case the only thing one would see at that close a range is their behinds as they tuck tail and run like the mutts that they are, bleating like sheep, in search of many villages, who are missing their idiot.

In Their Honor and the Fullness of Time

Periodically the subject(s) for my weekly columns take a little bit to find. Other times they scream to be written, and every once in a while, they search me out.

I was sought this week.

It won’t be reported in the papers or found on any blotter. Most would consider it random although I’m sure it has happened plenty of times prior, just not to me.

Without getting into the entire story (maybe I’ll add it to Late Bird Rising) a situation occurred, in the middle of a busy road, that required me to engage in a matter that wasn’t good for my central nervous system. Once the situation was contained my focused demeanor immediately turned to rage.

Rage that the situation ever occurred.

It shouldn’t have.

Rage at the individual(s) who put my safety in jeopardy.

I have no doubt this group of idiots has done this to other drivers.

Let us hope, for the safety of others, my response to him(them) did more than just release their bowels.

For those of you who have read Late Bird you know that migraines are a part of my life. I’ve done the best I can to control them but bright or strobe lights, nuts, or highly stressful situations usually lead to one happening somewhere in my near future.

I abstain from nuts and do my best to avoid intense lights, but occasionally complete strangers, will attempt to cause drama in my life.

It isn’t just me.

Complete strangers attempt to cause stress in everyone’s life across these United States.

They’re called Liberals.

This was a highly stressful situation and my response, although appropriate, was so intense I knew my head would be pounding in about an hour. I went on with my day completely prepared to deal with numb lips and fingertips, nausea, loss of vision and eventually an incredible pain that resonates for two days through my neck and head.

As I’ve stated before I’ve had these since I was a kid.

Just a part of my life.

This time a funny thing happened.

Even though I vacillated a little too long on the event, trying to “clear the mechanism,” the headache never arrived.

It appeared my response to those who created the situation, allowed me to remove the stress from my body, and return it to those who created it in the first place.

It’s time we do the same thing to the traitors in this country.

Let those who create the suffering, suffer the pain.

Every day “new” findings and documents are brought forward on the disastrous and treasonous Obama Administration.

Of course this isn’t new to those of us who pay attention, but as these things come to light, pressure/stress is being applied to our American systems, many that have already capitulated.

Roads that crumble, dams that break, schools that indoctrinate and graduate children who cannot read.

Trillions in debt with even more to come.

Politicians who lie, cheat, and steal and are so brazen, criminals with connections and secrets like Jussie Smollett, simply walk out the door, while Progressive judges sneak criminal foreign nationals out the back of our courthouses.

On this Memorial Day Weekend, with respect, appreciation, and admiration we praise the ultimate sacrifice of the American who because of their service, and last full measure of devotion, granted us the privilege of living in a free country.

On this day I say in their honor and the fullness of time,

Prepare to RAGE.

In God I Trust

The question has been bandied about many times over.

If you could talk to anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?

A large group will select those who were famous for being intelligent, such as Albert Einstein.

Others will prefer humans who were famous for different “attributes,” like Norma Jean Baker.

The answer to this question varies, as with so many different people, their choices will always cover the spectrum and then some.

What about you Jason?

Who would you choose and what would you ask?

For me this is simple.

I’m going with the Big Fella Upstairs and I’m not asking a damn thing.

The only words coming out of my mouth are THANK YOU.

Thank you for giving me Free Will so I not only have the opportunity to work hard, save my money, and be beneficial to others, but also have the capability to realize what I am doing.

Thank you for putting me in the greatest country in the history of Man.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

No questions about the universe, heaven, the creation of Earth, Jimmy Hoffa, who shot Kennedy, or Area 51.

Nothing, nada, zilch except merci beaucoup!

The reason I am writing about this today is simple.

If I have no questions for GOD what makes Liberals think I would ever have a question for them about anything?

What could we possibly ask these lost souls?

How to stop abortion from happening?

According to the braintrust of The Traveling Pants of Milano, women need only to halt having sex, in order to stop getting pregnant, and that all Liberal women, should cease and desist.

Another Progressive decided to support this protest by posing naked.

Hmmm, not sure if they thought that one out, then again, what am I saying?

They are Liberals.

Of course they didn’t.

This is the same group that screams for women’s rights and then supports Islam (Sharia) where women are property and abortion is a crime.

I’m pretty sure there are others ways for responsible adults to keep from getting knocked up but by all means all Progressive women should stop having sex immediately.

In fact let’s make this an Equality issue and attach it to the new “law” the House just passed by adding all Progressive men in there as well.

I have no doubt, if Liberals stick to this course of action, the intelligence quotient of the next generation, will rise dramatically.

Now if we can just close the border and send back all the Somalis, “Palestinians,” the Chinese spying for Dianne Feinstein, and the Pakistanis working for the Clintons/DNC, we might get to a point where we can afford to remove all forms of income tax, save the American Dollar by fixing interest rates and reducing debt, and create new systems where everyone who wants it, can genuinely afford, quality medical care.

Not this Obamacare, California Care, Medicare For All garbage that is crushing Americans and saving illegal foreign nationals.

With all that said I still wouldn’t change a thing when speaking with God.

Thank you again Big Fella.

It’s been a great ride and I appreciate the opportunity, oh and thanks for the Progressives.

We do need comedic relief down here.

What’s that?

You didn’t send them?

Very interesting.

That definitely makes it easier, for us to return them, from which they came.

In the meantime, I guess I’ll see you, when you want to see me.

Sincerely,

Jason Kraus

The Season of Treason

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and all the wonderful American mothers across these United States.

Now that the important item is complete let’s get to the rest of it.

I love Progressivism.

I love Progressivism like a kick to the groin or kidney stones.

Progressives are similar to ticks.

No plan in sight, just jumping from one host to another slowly sapping their strength, and if left to their own devices, will kill the host they so badly need to survive.

Maybe a better comparison would be the one celled amoeba, with of course my apologies, to the amoeba.

They shift and morph into different shapes and sizes.

Referencing shapes, Jerry Nadler strikingly resembles Humpty Dumpty. With too many in the population unable to pull up their pants, it appears Jerrold is doing his best to even the score.

Nancy Pelosi looks like death warmed over, but both of them want to tell the rest of us what kind of health care we should have.

That’s like asking Gavin Newsom how to remain sober, faithful, or tell the truth.

Speaking of telling the truth James Yes Hillary Was Guilty and Yes I Covered it up Comey stated that, “You can’t have a president who is a chronic liar. ”

Au contraire mon frère.

Clinton, Bush, and Obama were and are still chronic liars and of course Homey the Clown Comey knows this as he has been the Fixer in many of their situations/crimes.

To those in the know these three are referred to a distinction without a difference.

I digress.

According to Aunt Nancy we are now having a Constitutional Crisis.

This is hilarious coming from a Democrat.

Democrats referring to the Constitution is similar to Bernie Sanders talking about the protection of women, Elizabeth Warren discussing “native” facial structure, Beto O’Rourke and after school child care, or AOC bumping her gums about “like” anything.

These people aren’t just rotten to the core.

They are stupid without a bottom.

There is no floor to their insecurity, imbecility, or ineptitude.

This is Progressivism at its finest.

Talking about one of the greatest written documents in the history of Man and getting it all wrong!

There is no crisis. There is no Democracy.

What we have here is a failure to communicate.

Let me try it in the simplest of ways.

According to the USA Today, California politicians have voted to keep Donald Trump’s name off of the 2020 Presidential Ballot if he doesn’t release his tax returns.

Now I know the Dims haven’t read the Constitution but the “releasing of tax returns” isn’t a prerequisite to running for President.

Still they continue to ramble and have moved from Collusion to Obstruction to a Constitutional Crisis.

By attempting to keep an American Citizen off the ballot in any State, specifically the one with the largest population, a court battle will indeed ensue.

With that said this attempt could be construed as Secession, and although Secession isn’t directly found in the Constitution, another term is.

Treason.

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

The Democrats and RINOS have been adhering to our enemies and giving them aid and comfort for decades.

Tens of million of illegal foreign nationals are running all over America, in many cases murdering our citizenry.

What do the Democrats do?

Sneak them out the back of our courthouses, increase their EBT cards, or pile so many of them in one area a Somali, a “Palestinian,” and La Raza are now found in the House of Representatives.

Obama was so blatant with his support of Hamas and Hezbollah he didn’t even try to hide a helicopter drop of cash to Iran.

Roseanne might be a crass ass but she wasn’t incorrect about Valerie Jarrett’s connections to the world’s leading State sponsor of Islamic Terrorism.

Nancy Pelosi and her fellow idiots are one hundred percent wrong.

There is nothing wrong with the Constitution nor is it in any peril.

Keeping Donald Trump off the ballot in California is a completely different thing.

There’s nothing Constitutional about it but I can guarantee if that happens there will be a crisis.

For the Democrats.

Libs Need to be Progressive with Their Bigotry

While our National Guard was apparently being disarmed by the Mexican (Drug Cartels) military, the Democrats decided to focus on “environmentalism” by creating a Senate Caucus that will deal with “Race and Class”.

Let me help you Libs.

You are losing the race because you haven’t any class.

According to one of the Democratic Senators “Often times black and brown communities are the ones that suffer the biggest consequences of pollution.”

Whoa whoa whoa!

What is this black and brown stuff?

You Libs need to be Progressive with your bigotry.

African-American, Hispanic, or Latino are your 21st Century choices.

Why are there two different options of bigotry for the “brown” people?

I don’t know.

Maybe the Senate will create a Caucus and get us an answer to that.

In other action happening in Washington D. C. , a few voices SLOWLY are starting to ask whether or not Barack Obama was responsible for the spying on then Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Of course he was.

It can be a bit surreal to listen to talking heads finally start to discuss things that EVERYONE already knows.

Speaking of talking heads Cheekbones Warren has announced it is time to impeach Donald Trump…again.

The beer swilling “Cherokee” apparently doesn’t understand she has no authority during the Impeachment process.

NONE.

Then again she thinks the United States is a Democracy.

Unsurprisingly so does Humanitarian Hamas Pelosi.

Who down with HHP!

Aunt Nancy the ultimate acronymic three letter virus.

How do Libs feed themselves?

With other People’s money!

Thank you. Thank you.  I’ll be here all week.

In other Dumb Lib News it appears Medicare will start to run out of money in about seven years.

I’m sure putting everyone on it will make it all better.

Due to the limited intellect of the Liberal let us explain this issue with song.

Hush little Libby don’t say a word, don’t bother with the truth, just follow the herd.

If that herd shifts to reverse, Medicare will be there, with your hearse.

Too late Libby, stop that wailing, Sarah was right, you should’ve listened to a Palin.

Okay enough singing. Let us continue in sotto voce to soften the blow to the Dims.

According to “scientists” (propaganda) “feedback loops will make climate change even worse.”

Let’s use the AOC translator to explain this further.

“It’s like you know, like, yeah, (hair flip) like, instead of like twelve years, like it’s like now six years, until we all like die.”

I cannot speak for all but in my opinion, in the case of Progressives, the sooner the better.

Six years is like way too long, dude.

Ya feel me.

Surely you do.

I do and don’t call me Shirley.

Of course Shirley is better than Kareem.

Speaking of worthless humans Bernie Gang Rape Sanders is leading the Democratic Party’s Presidential nominee process without actually being a Democrat.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone.  The Party of Criminality wants to count illegals as citizens in the next Census.

What’s one more comrade on the Hindenburg leading his flock back to their Schultzstaffel roots.

The Dims appear to enjoy the repetition of consonants.

The SS, the KKK, the CBC.

One can only imagine their stupidity with the addition of a vowel.

A Very Hilly Xmas

Every year at Christmas time I try to provide some levity with brevity and lessen the gravity, of our current political cranial cavity.

A situation that soon shall correct itself, without the help of Santa’s elves.

In the meantime let us borrow from Rudolph and Santa, and share a little Xmas banter.

A ditty that’s witty.

A song about the wrong, and I encourage you all, to carol along,

Or if you are so inclined, gather your mind and your behind, and record your time.

Singing a yule tide tune, that’s sure to make the Liberal loons, howl at the moon.

It’s only fair that we share, with the Progressive bunch,

They can at least entertain us once.

Without further ado or aplomb, I welcome one and all to sing, to hum, to bump the gums about the dumb bums until you’re numb on rum, or out of Tums and please enjoy… a very Hilly Xmas.

You know Nancy and Alex and Chuckie and Barry,

Billy and Willie and Louie and Harry,

But do you recall, the most famous traitor of all,

Bump ba da bump bump,

Hilly the red backed commie, couldn’t stand without a hand

(Like a Ginsburg)

Filled with so much hate and vodka

They picked her up and threw her in a van,

(Like a criminal)

All of the other Libbys, cowered and voted thrice in the booth,

They chose the red backed commie because they couldn’t handle the truth.

Like Jack Nicholson,

Then one shiny November day, the American people had enough,

They soared and roared and said no way,

And kicked the traitors in the duff. 

Bump ba da bump bump,

Then all the country was happy, as a red-haired man took the stage,

America dreamed of justice, and the red backed commie in a cage. 

Like a Weinstein.

Bump bump

Bump. 

Merry Christmas America, Happy New Year and have no fear.

2019 is near, a year in the Democratic mirror filled with jeers and leers and Hollywood tears giving Americans an opportunity to break out our gear!

So for one last time, in rhyme, dropping dimes, lemon-limes, I like most chimes,

I wish you a very Hilly Xmas with much hasten,

Sincerely,

Kraus Jason

One bad apple

I used to think America was in trouble because of the crushing debt that was bestowed upon us by Clinton and Bush. Settle down Liberals. Clinton did indeed leave us with debt and a burgeoning housing crisis that made Warren Buffett wealthier. Barry Soetoro was then given the keys to the car and made them both look like amateurs by doubling the debt in eight years of Dope and Deranged.

Again Progressives settle down.

You can blame Bush all you like.

He is one of you and always will be. Michelle just loves herself some of the man who cost us the lives of thousands of our best and bravest because he couldn’t figure out the geographical difference between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. 

Thanks W.

I’ve written about the Federal Reserve, our crumbling infrastructure, human trafficking through our open southern border and drug usage being problems that could eventually harm America to the point of no return. 

All of those things are certainly possible but after watching thirty-seconds of Cruella de Vil Pelosi and Uncle Tumor Schumer with President Trump, I came to the conclusion those aforementioned items are dwarfed by one thing. 

The Stupid Humans who voted for these imbeciles. 

Our collective problems lie in the fact that a majority of the voters WANT systemic oppression and regardless of proven data known as the truth, will continue to choose that type of existence. 

This isn’t new to human behavior. Let us peruse the world in which we live. 

Russians, Chinese and Indians have been living under oppression for as long as anyone can remember.  Africa is filled with humans who have no desire to try something new. The Middle East sans Israel continues to crank out people who fight over what some nutbag said centuries ago. 

So pray tell what is the solution? 

Better technology?

Possible but doubtful. 

The human condition seems to push through all new inventions and rear its ugly head. 

The condition of Good versus Evil and currently Evil is doing better than its historical norm. 

For any problem to be fixed, one first has to identify the issue.

The issue is US. 

There will always be bullies, punks and even dictators. 

Although most humans simply want to get “along” it only takes one bad apple to ruin the barrel or turn over the cart. 

When those “apples” aren’t removed or dealt with their rot spreads much faster than most realize.

Is it as easy as removing bad apples one at a time?

Yes it is although war, in its slash and burn mentality, seems to be the way that these things “work themselves out”. 

In today’s America we have a culmination of barrels, carts, and bad apples strewn all over the country. 

We weren’t willing to remove the individual rotten fruit and even validated its presence over the years with “legislation,” “executive orders” and “judicial review”. 

None of this matters anymore.

The Great Experiment has devolved into humans at our highest positions referencing skunk urine and our media bringing up “butt boys”.

If we are a measurement of our “leaders” then we deserve what is coming.

Fortunately WE are not. 

The solution is simple. 

WE all know what needs to occur. 

With that knowledge and personal preparation, we must allow any doubt or consternation, to evaporate. 

Let those who choose neither carry the burden of fear. 

We choose freedom, passion and pride in our country, in our beliefs, in our way of life. 

In doing so we guarantee, in the case of these United States, the pride will not goeth, as there will be no fall. 

A mouthpiece on Yahoo stated that Donald Trump is in trouble and no longer has a defense. 

Oh he has a defense. 

Unleash the American Lion Mr. President and let the reckoning begin.

We Gather

Over the years many comments and questions have been sent my way.  I’ve done my best to answer as many as possible. The overriding theme of Americans across this great country has been simple.

What can we do and when can we do it?

What can we do to stop the corruption found at all levels of government when it is so pervasive?

We gather.

When can we do it?

Now.

The concept known as Three Percent is easy to understand and explain. Only three percent of the population has reportedly ever engaged in actual combat to protect, support, or defend these United States.

Most humans living on planet Earth are very comfortable living under Oppression.

China, India, Russia, most of the Middle East, and Africa make up billions of humans who are willing to live at the hand, and under the thumb, of other humans.

They’ve been doing this for centuries.

It isn’t about to change anytime soon.

Tens of millions of humans living in America are also very comfortable living this way.

This isn’t about to change anytime soon either.

The one thing we do know about those who will live under the culture of Oppression is that they will believe whatever they are told to believe, do whatever they are told to do.

Hard work, personal responsibility, and ethics do not exist under the culture of Oppression.

Nor does courage.

Those with these characteristics would rather fight and die than cower to other humans.

We know this because the human known as American has proven this year after year, decade after decade, century after century.

This culture is known as Freedom and fortunately it doesn’t take a large group to ensure it survives and thrives.

In fact it doesn’t need millions or even hundreds of thousands.

As I’ve stated before 10,000 strong will do it.

The rest of the population will do whatever they are told, willing to take the “easiest” way out.

They will never challenge courage or corruption.

They can’t even be bothered to vote, and those that do, vote without knowledge.

Our problem right now is a few hundred politicians, judges, and high ranking appointees.

That’s it.

Cut the head off of the snake, and as the dead carcass flops to the ground, watch tens of millions immediately decide, the “easy” way is to follow the Rule of Law.

Freedom isn’t complicated.

We need to stop bothering with the sheep.

Shepherds exterminate the wolves.

Very few humans actually live lives that matter.

Be one of the few.

Gather you brave souls, secure in the fact that you are not alone.

Gather in twos and threes, fives and tens, tens and twenties.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me.

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

They comfort me too.

No hashtag required.

Hammers Required

My life has always been pretty simple in regards to those who like to run their mouths or give me unsolicited advice.

When something is said that I don’t like I tell the person to stop.

If they do it again I invite them to deal with this issue in a nonverbal way.

Most of the time as a child, adolescent, or an adult the idiots stop running their mouths.

Now this is not to say there haven’t been times when something was said that I didn’t catch right away or it just took me a little while to get angry.

On this issue I have no doubt EVERYONE knows what I am referring to.  That stupid comment some relative, friend, or co-worker said that you stewed on the rest of the day and sometimes even longer.

I don’t “stew” very well.

Never have.

If there is something you’ve said or done that irritated me I will deal with you as quickly as I can and purge you from my life.

Whether you like the way I deal with you, or not, is irrelevant.

Your mouth is causing you your problems, not me.

Sounds like you think you are some kind of tough guy Jason?

I’m not Pat Miletich but who is.

I have a brother from another mother with a nickname of Caveman who has been reminding me in person for a few years that I’m not even the toughest guy in the Rocklin, CA area but aside from UFC Hall of Famers or wrestling/grappling/jiu jitsu physical freaks of nature with nicknames like Caveman, I’ll be your Huckleberry.

That’s just my game.

Again this is the way I was raised and most Americans understand what I am saying but sadly things have changed dramatically in these United States.

The concept of live and let live coupled with turn the other cheek has created tens of millions of humans who believe they can say or do anything they want from their “safe spaces” without repercussion.

These safe spaces used to be their cars.

The problem these days are the cowards have graduated from their cars and onto the internet.

I cannot tell you how many “keyboard warriors” I’ve dealt with over the years.

I’ve heard it all.  If you can think it I have read it.

Now I put my columns up for FREE.  If you don’t like something you’ve read move on.

You may as well.

I just delete your comment and you from the page.

I read items on social media all the time that are lies, half-truths, or just wrong but I don’t comment negatively on these things.

On the net?

What’s the point?

I have a life.

In person I will gladly engage in providing knowledge to the ignorant.  If they don’t like it they can walk away or if they have enough courage take it to the next level.

Not once have I had someone attempt to do so in person.

Not once.

Maybe it’s because of my big smile.

I doubt it.

On the internet though it’s any entirely different world.

I’ve had people call me things that even in my most angered state have never come out of my mouth.  One time a rather disturbed soul said such vile things to me I told him, “I am easy to find. That is my name and my picture.  But when you coming looking pack two lunches.  I’m going to eat the first one and feed you the second.”

His response:  “You’re crazy.”

Lucky for him I’m not.  These weasels think they are safe behind their computer screens.

Finding them isn’t hard at all.

I didn’t bother to respond.

As stated earlier I’ve been called anything and everything and I am just one guy with a website and a decent presence on Facebook.

Imagine what Donald Trump goes through on a daily basis.

He’s been called a Nazi, a rapist, a child molester, and a traitor.

His wife and children have been attacked.

Twenty-four hours a day seven days a week hate is spewed at him on the Internet, television, and radio.

Well he’s President Jason.  He’s going to have to turn the other cheek.

Nope.

Not anymore.

That’s how we got here in the first place.

We are out of cheeks.

We are out of turns.

Actually THEY are out of turns.

It’s OUR turn as in it’s OUR country.

Liberals have taken advantage of our “kindness” and now believe we are weak.

I don’t care what Donald Trump tweets, states, or yells, I will back him every step of the way.

It’s time to choose sides.

Literally.

If the House actually puts his impeachment on the floor or somehow the 25th Amendment is attempted (which still goes to the House)  I will be on my way back to Washington D.C.

I won’t be alone.

That is our line in the sand and if this is attempted we must ensure it is not successful.

WE MUST ENSURE IT IS NOT SUCCESSFUL.

Many have asked over the years what will it take for Americans to rise up?  Who will make the call?

Any attempt at Trump’s impeachment is what it will take for me and although I will make the call right here I doubt I will be the only one.

Regardless it will be made.

We are coming off the 4th of July Weekend.

The Birthday of The United States.

The Declared Independence of Americans.

From this day forward let it be known that in order for a house to stand the nails must be driven purely, forcefully, and literally into the structure.

There are nails aplenty.

Hammers required.

Lunch will be provided.

Happy Birthday to the Red White and Blue

Born in Southern California every 4th of July celebration I can remember was pretty much the same.  Playing in the neighborhood all day while stopping to eat a wide variety of foods usually only available on holidays.  I’m sure some type of large firework show took place but I don’t really remember them.  I do remember Whistling Petes, Black Snakes, and Sparklers.  The acrid smell of smoke and burnt vegetation as a Spinning Flower once bounced off a street curb and into one of our neighbor’s ivy.

That left a mark.

It wasn’t too long after that my family moved to Trinity County.

Northern California.

Even back then things were different.

The hub of Trinity County was and is a town called Weaverville.  Those of you who’ve read Late Bird I’m sure recognize the name.

Weaverville is surrounded by little mill towns that hold anywhere from thirty to one hundred people each.

Certainly not sprawling metropolises.  Probably more coyotes than people and without a doubt more snakes and scorpions.

I sometimes laugh when I hear “snakes are more scared of you than you are of them.”

They should be.  We have a corpus callosum and opposable thumbs.

At least those of us who voted for Trump.

In Weaverville the 4th of July was an event because the citizens and community leaders loved the United States.

Flags and bunting decorated the town.

Red, white, and blue hats, shirts, and bandanas were found everywhere.

Veterans were shown respect because of their courage to serve, protect, and defend.

The same type of courage found more than two hundred years ago.

The courage of men and women who if caught would be hung as traitors to the Crown.

The term American back then was whispered by many as it could get you beaten, robbed, or killed by the English or those loyal to the King.

American heroes like Francis Marion known as the Swamp Fox and John Paul (I have not yet begun to fight) Jones engaged in the battle on land and sea and American legends like Nathan Hale were created when unmeasurable courage met an unbreakable noose.

In the name of the United States.

In the name of Freedom.

Fireworks are a large part of most 4th of July celebrations.  Many ooh and aah at them.  I have done so as well.  We are gifted with their visual beauty because nothing horrific follows the streaking of light through the sky followed by a large explosion.

“And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.”

The flag was still there but many Americans were not and would never see the Stars and Stripes ever again because “Don’t tread on me” actually meant DON’T TREAD ON ME.

I hope each and every one of you enjoy your 4th of July celebrations.

My point of this article is to continue the knowledge, lessons, and stories that were given to me by my parents, teachers, and books.

That before we partake in the ice cream, hot dogs, and apple pie we pause for a moment or two to appreciate those who made it possible that we see fireworks as a beautiful sight because we don’t live in a war zone.

That before we run off to the lake to barbecue and swim that we say thank you to the Big Fella Upstairs for whom this nation was found under.

That before the carnivals start, the cotton candy sticks to too many little faces, that before the rockets red glare, we understand the ultimate truth.

Freedom isn’t Free.
