Ninth Circuit Circus

With all the insanity and illegality happening in the courts these days I thought it pertinent to again cover how our system works and doesn’t work. The idea of Democracy is to serve the majority which eventually leads to Tyranny.

This is the culmination of Socratic Theory.

A Republic or in our case a Constitutional Republic is meant to protect very specific Rights of the Individual. Specific Rights stated in our Constitution not the collective rantings of Norway, China, or Saudi Arabia. Pretty soon the Colonel Sanders crowd will be calling themselves Sharia Socialists and telling us all how Stalin and Mao were misunderstood.

Health care, health insurance, education, or lack thereof are not Rights regardless of what anyone thinks.

Yes portions of Democracy were kept in the creation of a Republic but Madison & Company were very clear.

These United States are not a Democracy.

Article 4. Section 4.

We are the evolution of Democratic tendencies (group think), into the Protection of again, the Individual.  This was suppose to stop the train from derailing into Tyranny.  Of course too many in America have no concept of this process including our politicians. Yes we are a measurement of our elected “leadership” and yes that is currently a very sad statement.

Generation after generation we have been told that our Republic has three co-equal branches of government. Most have no idea where this concept originated but they are more than willing to continue to repeat it.

This is Aristotle’s model, later built on by Montesquieu.

Both Madison and Jefferson knew this was behaviorally incorrect and Madison specifically went about securing a system that protected I over We. As I’ve written in the past Congress was meant to have most of the authority. Many will refer to this as the power of the purse. This is partially correct.

The reason we know Congress was meant to have more authority over the other branches is very clear.

The Power of Impeachment, Conviction and Removal resides in the House and Senate.

This is legislative not criminal authority and expressly allows Congress to remove the President and members of the Federal Judiciary.

Neither the Judiciary or Executive Branches have this authority over Congress.

We weren’t meant to be ruled by a tiny group of judges (oligarchy) or a King (monarchy).

We weren’t meant to be ruled at all.

The power resides in the House, the system closest to the People, to impeach.

The authority then moves to the Senate, the “deliberative” body, for conviction and removal.

The Framers even built in a check and balance within Congress.

Thankfully they did as Jefferson’s concern of “despots” ruling America has risen to dangerous levels.

Our last three Presidents should have all been impeached, convicted, and removed.

Clinton was impeached but not convicted and removed.

Because they weren’t, our courts are filled with horrendous appointees, who believe they are untouchable.

They aren’t.

It’s time to replace the Ninth Circuit who among other things completely ignored the rule of “standing”.

Of even greater need is the removal and replacement of the Supreme Court.

John Roberts is a great place to start.

The removal of Sotomayor and Kagan is an even better ending.

The Conundrum of CalExit

I was twenty-one and talking in the kitchen with a married couple from whom I’d just rented a room. This was necessary as I had  transferred to a California State University to finish my baseball career and graduate.  As it’d been a long day I decided to call it a night.  Barely into my room I heard a large roar outside my window.  Looking out I couldn’t see anything as the roar continued to dissipate and then return.

I exited my room and headed to the front door where I stepped outside just in time to see a police helicopter almost skim the roof of the two story apartment complex while yelling over the loudspeaker to “return to your homes”.

This seemed to go on for a while before gun shots rang out.

A little later police knocked on the door and asked me if I’d heard anything.  I told them about the helicopter and the gunshots.  They said thank you and moved to the rest of the apartments.

It was 1992 and my first night in San Bernardino California.

Yep the same San Berdu (as it was referred to by the locals) that was struck by terrorists decades later.

Now to be accurate (not interested in fair) I enjoyed my time at California State University San Bernardino.  The campus was nice, many of my professors were excellent, my coach was a dream to play for, and I was introduced to Socrates, John Locke, Abraham Maslow and the Gambler’s Fallacy.

Continuing the accuracy requires me to say my apartment complex was nice enough and walking distance to the school.  The rest of San Bernardino was like most cities in Southern California’s inland empire.

Packed housing structures and businesses, crowded streets and highways, with just enough graffiti, trash, and crime to signify gang presence.

In other words a hole.

25 years later.  Things haven’t improved.  Sadly this is a microcosm of what was once the Great State of California and brings me to my point.

Over the last month I’ve received questions or comments from all over America asking about the infamous CalExit.

Freedom loving Americans see what appears to be roving gangs of Democrats marauding through the streets screaming to take the REPUBLIC of California and leave the most famous REPUBLIC in the world.

It is here that irony writes itself.

I’m not sure which is of greater absurdity.  Democrats living in Republics or legal aged adults who believed Bernie Sanders was going to provide them all free healthcare and college.

CNN covered CalExit like it was the Battle of the Bulge ( who knew CNN could cover something other than missing planes and whatever Hillary told them to) and attempted to capture the moment by asking a guy, who’d spent too much time eating fast food, his opinion.

It might have been entertaining to hear however his 50 yard walk was more than his lungs could bear.

I wonder if the Democrats are giving out free exercise too.

If you are sensing a bit of amusement emanating on the page you would be correct.

California is going to leave the United States?

Nope.

The many legal and procedural hoops that would have to be attained for any State to leave is overwhelming.

Because of this I am not going to even bother walking down that road.

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

First it is called Secession Liberals.

Not Succession.

The last time the act of secession was attempted it ended badly in Sherman’s March.  The War Between the States was the most brutal war in American History.  The United States was split down the middle.  Brothers against brothers.

This was a hard time lived by even harder people on both sides.

The Walking Dead in California known as Liberals are not hard people.

They are a collection of participation trophy recipients strung out on dope and cloves whom are so laughably recognizable Jack in the Box created commercials about their incessant two a.m. taco runs.

I doubt a majority of them can spell California let alone EXIT.

Abraham Maslow is shaking his head while Socrates is nodding and saying, “I warned you about Democracy”.

Yes you did.

Any attempt by “Californians” to break away from the U.S. would be met with force.

I was born and raised in California.  I’ve competed, been educated, and served in Law Enforcement in California.

With all that said my Pledge of Allegiance is to the United States of America.

I am an AMERICAN.

If a bunch of drugged out Timothy Leary followers want to join hands with CAIR and La Raza have at it.

It will be the shortest lived attempt at “Succession” in human history.

There are plenty of Americans just like me all over California, especially Northern.

If for some reason the Jack in the Box crew et al isn’t dealt with in 48 hours I’m sure there is plenty of help all across this country more than willing to drive the one celled amoebas back into the Pacific Ocean.

We can call it community outreach and climate repair.

I can just see it now.

Lighters, bongs, and Che Guevara T-shirts all waving over their heads in surrender, like the worst participation trophies ever, while huddled in each others arms clamoring for safety pins and safer spaces.

Okay let us return from fantasy land and give you the real reason California will never secede.

The Democratic Party would never allow it.

Without California the Party of Tyranny would cease to exist.

All of a sudden California secession doesn’t sound so bad to everyone NOT in California.

Don’t ya just love the smell of a good conundrum in the morning?

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.
