Ring of Fire

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around does it make any noise?

I remember hearing this question as a young person.  I was fascinated by the idea of action-reaction or action-consequence, depending on your taste.

I’ve watched and heard many trees fall.

When I was present a sound was certainly made.  I’ve also walked through forests and witnessed trees on the ground laying silently knowing they had to have fallen, but for me, there was no noise.

It appears many in America have discovered Pavlov and are uncomfortably conditioned to “not hear” the sound of the tree…falling directly on them.

Then again…how much sound does it really make…and for how long?

I was in Oakland, CA last weekend for business.  Driving down Broadway everything appeared calm.  Commerce was taking place.  Cars and pedestrians were moving at normal speeds.  To arrive at my preferred location I made a couple of turns that took me down side roads.  I didn’t witness any “crime” but the collection of humans milling around with seemingly no destination while dressed in their pajamas definitely told those of us paying attention “trees” had fallen in this community many times and although they made no sound currently…the noise was deafening.

Upon my arrival I engaged in conversation with an auto dealer.  After exchanging pleasantries I commented on the armed guard that I’d passed up the street.

“Yeah this place got a little crazy a few weeks ago…you know the riots and all.  They actually burned over fifty cars just up the road.”

I turned and looked in the direction he had pointed.  There weren’t any vehicles left that I could see or any visible scars from this latest attack on America.  It was almost as if it didn’t happen.  But upon closer analysis the damage of decades of “falling trees” could be seen everywhere.

Unkempt streets, pock-marked with divots were the norm.  Gangs announced their presence with graffiti leaving a painfully dark energy amongst the humans attempting to survive.  Aforementioned pajama wearing dwellers stood in groups of two or three with slumped shoulders and bowed heads with the ever present blank stare of an animal having no thoughts of gain and nothing to lose.

Oakland.

Also known as Jerry Brown’s town.

Democracy in full effect.

The people in Oakland overwhelmingly vote for people like Brown, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama.  Although their city is a mess, taxes are out of control, and crime is rampant, they continue to elect the same dead wood, every election cycle, year after year.

The Oak is known to be a strong tree.

It appears it is time to free the Oak from this habitat.

It’s only appropriate as they’ve cut down all the trees anyway.

Let us rename Oakland.

I think Flush has a nice ring to it (and better water awareness).

As in only going down…when Brown.

Thanks Jerry.

Unfortunately this mindset isn’t only found in “Flush”.

It’s also grows like a tapeworm in Los Angeles, New York City, Detroit, Chicago, and Baltimore.

Hmm…I am sensing a trend.

I often wonder as I drive down the road, while going to work, how America will turn out.

I feel a sense of duty to serve her in anyway she requires but these days…well it’s getting harder to know where to point my bullhorn.

Expensive cars whip by me at meteoric speeds, hustling and bustling to a wide variety of drive up restaurants who make our food and drink for us.

Two hundred dollar cell phones are attached to the ear of every person I see.  Some of them struggle with their pants and underwear but the phone is there nevertheless.

The stock markets are at all-time highs, and according to the government unemployment is the lowest it’s been in decades.

The dollar is strong around the world, and again according to reports, and our lovely President, we aren’t at war anymore.

A Nobel award winning economist named Paul Krugman has proclaimed debt is not only good, but of it, we are much more in need.

You are in luck Paul, as debt, is the one thing we have in droves.

Republican politicians are now embracing Obamacare and the ever growing Medicare program.

Professor Paul from his ivory tower should love this as the debt piling on through everyone having “affordable healthcare” is astounding and on its way to astronomical heights. Right along with all believers in man made “Climate Change” this individual will go down as a “Flat Earther”.

Of course this is the same man who announced we could simply “mint” a few trillion dollar coins and pay off our national debt.

Good job Nobel.  Good job.

Between your awarding Paulie Shore Krugman a Nobel Prize in Economics and Barack Obama a Nobel Prize in Peace (America has been at war every second of his Presidency, not to mention the man hates half of America, most of Israel, wanted to bomb Syria, is “flexible” with Communist Russia, and has overtly chosen Shiite over Sunni Islam) it appears No Clue is more appropriate than Nobel.

Due to the sounds coming out of Paul and Barry’s mouths on a daily basis it is fair to say many “trees” have fallen on them.

If not so serious it would almost be laughable (almost) that we are being dictated to by people who refer to themselves as a Liberal with a Conscience (an oxymoron)…or were part of the Choom Gang.

I will give this one to Obama.

At least he owned it.  He liked(s) to smoke pot and/or cocaine.

Unlike Krugman who portends Liberals have consciences and pretends he understands economics.

But hey, maybe these two squawk boxes are right.

Is debt good?

Are drugs okay?

Type two diabetes is a sign of a wealthy people?

Abandoning American troops in foreign lands is now allowable?

Cops being murdered almost daily throughout America?

College professors stating the only thing wrong with America is the presence of white males?

So let us harken back to the beginning.

When a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound?

I don’t know whether an auditory effect actually takes place.

I do know this.

There are a lot of trees on the ground that are splintered, weathered, and strong.  They’ve absorbed and taken many hits for our country.  They are now covering America with their strength, intertwined in one another, as dry as can be, providing the tinder and awaiting the spark.

The spark that sets the American blaze in motion incinerating the lies and eviscerating the liars.

That spark is everywhere in America.  It is found in small towns, country stores, and mountain tops.  But most importantly it is found in every home who believes in Freedom and the Greatness of America.

Oh yes it is.

One need only know where to look.

For those of you still not sure simply gaze into the face of your beloved children and for those of you who do not have little ones just walk into your nearest room with a mirror and take a good look.

There’s your spark.

Shoulder to shoulder.

America awaits your arrival.

Roaring.

Restoring a nation one voice at a time.

 

The only cure for politicians is Chemotherapy

Although I have written and spoken about this quite a bit I have been trying to write another article on the abolishing of income tax and the benefits it will generate to not only the American worker but to American companies and eventually free societies everywhere as the individual has more monetary choice and financial freedom.

Not to mention it will be the only way the debt will be paid without war and/or a currency crisis.

With that said this current crop of politicians, and one spouse, continue to require I deal with their absurdity on a weekly basis.

It’s as though they cannot help themselves.

Of course this is impossible as we know they do nothing but help themselves.

For example…

Michelle Obama’s “all this for a flag” statement is a troubling collection of words.  Yes Michelle, you are free because of the men and women who fought, lived, and died in protection and defense of “that flag”.

Furthermore some of those men and women who died looked a lot like your “son”…if you had one.

Nancy Pelosi’s comment that Hamas is a humanitarian organization is a stunning admission of either complete insanity or pure evil.

Hamas ( a terrorist organization and the elected government of the “Palestinian Authority”) believes in Islamic Sharia Law.  Sharia Law treats women as property and homosexuals as people to be removed from the planet…permanently.

So Democratic voters, who are WOMEN and/or homosexual, you are voting for someone who calls misogyny, bigotry, and murder “humanitarian”.

Are you starting to understand why Democratic cities and States are struggling so much?

No?  Okay.  Let me continue.

Maxine Waters (California congresswoman) actually made a speech where she stated Sharia Law and the United States Constitution are compatible.

Not only is this completely false but it is also treasonous for a sitting U.S. Representative to, even in theory, attempt to replace the laws of our land with anything else.

That she chose Islamic “Law” as a compatible engine only shows her lack of Constitutional Law…or her depth of hatred for women, homosexuals, Jews, and anything American.

By supporting the Democratic Party, in anyway, you are supporting Maxine Waters.

More?

Okay…

How about Missouri Democratic State Senator Jamilah Nasheed?  According to reports, this collection of intelligence and morality proclaimed cutting welfare payments to her constituency would drive them to prostitution and crime (prostitution is considered a crime Jamilah) in order to provide for their families.

According to Senator Nasheed if the tax payers of Missouri don’t give money to the people whom elected her then a mad dash to the corner is about to take place?

“Heyyyy baby… you so fine…you be looking to partay?”

or…

Looting and stealing from the local neighborhood businesses is going to what…get worse?

Hey Jamilah have you not heard of places like Compton, Watts, Ferguson, or Baltimore?  The looting and stealing is ALREADY taking place!

If Jamilah is right, for the sake of the good people in Missouri, welfare should be cut off immediately.

Look what decades of free money has created.  People who now cannot do anything except pimp, pander, and loot if that money is removed…according to the State Senator.

What a breath of fresh air she must be when she returns home to the voters.  I can only imagine her opening statement.

“People…I have good news and bad news…the bad news first.  The racist State of Missouri is cutting your welfare.  What’s that?  Are they cutting mine too?  Of course not you silly peasants.  I get paid in real money!  I get paid to look out for you!  Why is that?  Because you elected me!  Hold on, hold on.  That’s the bad news.  The good news is you now have every reason to loot, steal, maim, sell drugs, or your bodies.

Why is that?

Because I said so besides what else you gonna do?  State Senator is taken.”

If Missouri was smart they’d cut off the welfare and give the cops a raise.

Still not enough?

Boy, Democrats what is it going it take?

Self proclaimed Democratic Socialist (even the communists know socialism doesn’t work)  United States Senator Bernie Sanders stated “America should look more like Scandinavian countries”.

Scandinavian countries are listed as Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.

Hmmm… a slip of the tongue here?

America should “look” more like Scandinavian countries?

Hey Colonel, you understand these countries are overwhelmingly Caucasian right?

This means they “look” like they have white skin.

Anyone home Senator?

It appears Mr. Sanders is playing the lead role in a “Weekend at Bernie’s”.

Come on Democrats!

Get your message together.

Bernie wants to “look” like Denmark while the Congressional Black Caucus is ranting about White Privilege and “Hands up, don’t shoot” even though all of this is an overt lie…and they know it.

Throw in a splash of crazy uncle Joe Biden “put y’all back in chains”, add a smidgen of the Baltimore mayor’s “create space for room to destroy”, and a dash of Illinois Congressman Luis Guitierrez calling for the “militancy” of illegals against American citizens and there you have it.

Democracy in full bloom.

Or as we responsible Americans call it…the J.V. Team.

Oh but wait…we have more.

We also have politicians who call themselves Republicans, but believe in practice and theory, that we are a Democracy.

I cannot count how many times (well I can but what is the point?  The number continues to grow) I have heard Republican politicians proclaim “America is a democracy”.

Well then…why do you call yourselves Republicans?

At a bare minimum any Republican politician should at least know we are not a democracy.

Say it with me you Karl Rovian clowns.

I pledge allegiance to the flag (that’s for you Michelle) of the United States of America (not Denmark Bernie) and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands.

Did you get that Reince Priebus?

And to the REPUBLIC!

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic.  The word Democracy isn’t even found in the Constitution…ever!

Let’s clear up the madness.

We have two political parties…currently.

We have the J.V. team (Barack’s Democratic Donkeys) …and the guys who can’t beat the J.V. team (Rhino’s Republican collection of Elephant dung).

Fact:  They both lie.

Fact:  They both love debt.

One tries to sell us as a “fact of the matter” (will someone please tell all these talking heads on television it is a “matter of fact”) that America is racist, bigoted, homophobic, stupid, narcissistic, and racist again.

Debt is good, raising taxes is definitely needed, and if you are white, or depending on their current agenda, male, you are the devil incarnate.

All women are oppressed unless they don’t vote the appropriate way.  If they don’t vote the appropriate way they are still oppressed but too stupid to know it.

Anyone with black or brown skin has no chance in America and needs government funds to even survive.

Anyone with black or brown skin who disagrees with that is an Uncle Tom, or a “pendejo” who doesn’t deserve to be here.

Then we have the other party.

The party so obtuse they cannot find a way to lead a nation that is so desperate for any semblance of responsible leadership it continues its self immolation, year after year, election after election.

We need a new way.

I am here doing my part.

I will be traveling throughout America soon continuing to do my part but I cannot do this alone.

An avenue must be created so individual Americans can come forward from all over America and put their names on the line to serve as Representatives, Senators, and Presidents.

It’s time to face reality.

The Democratic and Republican Parties are cancerous entities.  They breed corruption, greed, bigotry, racism, and fear.

There will never be enough lipstick for these pigs.

There will never be enough chemotherapy for this kind of malignancy.

We must have truth.  We must restore justice.  We must reclaim America.

One voice at a time.

Your voice.

When politicians haven’t any answers…it’s time to stop asking questions.

I was asked recently…”when are you running for President?”

I am not “running” for President.

I am offering to serve America. I will do so with ferocity and humility but trust me when I say there will be no “running” before, during, or after.

America doesn’t “run”.

We ROAR!!!

Do not put me in the same group with all those “running” around “exploring their options” or proclaiming their candidacies and then immediately begging and bragging about how much money they fleeced from American citizens.

“You have a problem…send me your money…I will fix it.”

Sound familiar?

Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative just clamoring for the bucks.

Let’s try it this way:

We have a problem…keep your money…we will fix it together.

How hard is this?  Apparently too much for the infantile behavior of the animal known as politician.

I guess the draw of Prom King or Queen is simply too much to bear.

America has three words for you corrupt wretches.

You disgust us.

A similar question arrived as well.  “When are you going to announce your candidacy for President?”

One radio talk show host even asked me if I’d filed my Federal paperwork to take campaign contributions.

Let me say this again for the hearing impaired.

NO CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE REQUESTED OR ACCEPTED.

Were the caps loud enough?

But you cannot win without money Jason.

According to who?

Who you Eeyore?

Who you Obama supporter?

Who you Bush apologist?

Please.

Besides, who said I wasn’t spending money.  I just said I won’t spend money from anyone else.  I am more than willing to spend mine.

It’s my money.

I earned and more importantly saved it.  I will spend it anyway I want in service to the greatest country in the history of man.

For example if you are reading this column in your email it is there because I paid a very talented individual to build our website.  The column comes to you with no charge but of course it cost money to get it there.

It is free though, for you, to forward on to your friends.

If you are reading this on Facebook I paid Facebook to “boost” this and all columns, as well as videos, to spread the message further beyond just our friends and family.  Again there is a cost to me, but none to you, to share the message on your page and thousands of others if you are so inclined.

Sharing is caring:)

What I have discovered is many of you are so inclined.

Because of the American spirit willing to fight and persevere, our message is being spread all over the country.  I’m receiving messages from everywhere in America wanting to be involved, to board the Freedom Train.

While the few grouse “it will never happen”…it is happening…right in front of their very eyes.

Stop blinking and get involved!

Although we are willing to pay the ultimate price for these United States we choose to LIVE!!!

FREE!!!

Live free with us or live somewhere else.

We are fed up with the lies of oppressive governments, and “safe spaces” for criminals to abuse our cities.

Justice is gone.

But make no mistake…a reckoning is coming.

A burgeoning anger, that will not be controlled for too much longer, smolders. We will not sit idly by as politicians and a President tell snarky jokes as our cities burn and crumble with every passing day.

American children are abused by failing schools and neglectful or absent role models whom proclaim that the children aren’t theirs but rather the “communities” to raise or love.

Ah yes, as we’ve heard, it “takes a village”.

Or “your children aren’t yours…they belong to the community.”

Thanks MSNBC for your defining of a child. Truly progressive.

The “villages” are astray as members of the liberal belief system congregate in Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Police now retreat ensconced in riot gear being bombarded by rocks, cans, trash, etc.

The Baltimore community “leader” set up “safe spaces” for the misunderstood to rant, scream, and ruin the labor of someone else while sprinting back to the “village” with bags of Doritos.

Is this what Nancy Pelosi meant by Obamacare allowing everyone to not work and find their passion?

Snacks for everyone including the Humanitarian Hamas?

Oy vey.

Where are you Hillary?

This is your village.

What do you mean you didn’t build that?

Oh yes you and Elizabeth did.

What does it matter?

Trust me madam it’s going to matter very soon.  You and your Chairman Mao sport coats will fit perfectly in Leavenworth.

Where are you Barack?

Too busy telling jokes someone else wrote for you?

Too busy making fun of Trump to notice all the carnage happening the next town over?

Destruction you put in place because of your constant attacks on law enforcement and comparisons of your own facial pigment.

Of course it isn’t Barack’s fault Obama supporters.

It’s Bush’s.

Pipe down Bush apologist.

He’s the one who gave us two terms of “dope and harangued”.

Still, Obama does have a way about him.

The “man” stares into the camera and tells America to do some “soul searching”.

Apparently on top of pseudo-economist, informational fabricator, and factually challenged  law professor, we can add the worst therapist ever.

The coupling of  the “soul searcher” with Eric Holder and his “America is full of cowards” comment only leads us to one conclusion.

The coward in the White House has nothing internally to search…although he does like to poke the “bear”.

But he, like the rest of the politicians, have been misinformed.

America isn’t filled with bears who are “flexible” with our ethics or draw “red” lines in the metaphorical sand.

America is filled with Lions who’ve been roaring for a while.

The roaring is your warning “soul searchers”.

When the American Lion goes silent…we’re done talking.

So pay attention Washington D.C.

You’re focused on the wrong issue.

Start focusing on the LAW ABIDING TAX PAYING AMERICAN CITIZEN!

If you force America’s hand we won’t be ruining our neighborhoods, running around with our faces covered like cowards.

We’ll be shoulder to shoulder, millions strong, with our heads held high, and Old Glory waving her strength, coming to you, in OUR capitol.

You better get this under control now because trust me, if you force us to go silent, a slap from our momma’s isn’t going to stop us.

Not that they would or would have to.

Real American mothers don’t raise felons.

Real American mothers raise men and women who serve the country…not themselves.

Do not open that door!!!

What a fascinating time in the world.

Sometimes it feels as though I am watching a horror flick where the music becomes darker and the actor starts to turn a handle on a door that you know they shouldn’t be opening.  Some people will scream at the TV, “NO! Do not open that door!”, while others squirm on the couch thinking the same thing.

Of course they open it and out comes Pandora, box and all.

Or Freddy Krueger, take your pick.

Why do we keep opening the same door?

“Hillary Clinton once proclaimed”…that’s all you should need….

Don’t open the door.

“Bill Clinton”…again all you should need…..

Leave the door shut.

Barack….

Are you with me now?

The one thing all of these people and politicians in general have proven is they don’t care about freedom, America, you, or me.

There are things we know and things we don’t know.

We know this.  They don’t care about our plight, our lives, really anything about us.  These types of people are like a Hoover vacuum (not fair to Hoover).  They will suck up everything they can to fulfill the void in their lives.

Money, resources, the truth, even human lives do not matter to these people.

Yet we continue to “open the door”.

Or do we?

Some democratic voters (not enough) currently abhor Hillary Clinton.  They proved this last time when they went with a guy whose middle name was “Hussein”.

I think we should start pronouncing it “Insane”.

For sake of clarity.

It’s only “fair” to keep things “balanced”.

Hussein as in Saddam was a Sunni.

“Insane” as in Obama prefers Shiite and I do believe would appreciate the adherence to his strict dogma not be confused.  Never fear BO…you are in good hands.

From this day further I bequeath onto Barry, Barack…it’s all so confusing…his official name and title:

Barack Insane Obama.

I think it has a nice ring.

But then again who is the insane party here?

A man who lies, lies to cover lies, then lies some more because those lies seem to work…or the people who continue to go along with the lies when they know none of it is true.

We the American people have bestowed our trust, not once but twice, into a man who struggles to keep up with current events, unless they can be found on television, but always has his NCAA bracket turned in on time.  Never mind the fact he thought it important to explain to us what his son would look like…if he had one.

Before this we placed our belief, twice, in a man who announced to the world that the Mission was Accomplished and then left our best and bravest behind in the hands of…Barack Insane Obama who repeatedly told anyone who would listen exactly what he was going to do in that region of the world…before he was elected.

Finally before all of this we placed our country, twice, in the hands of a man who was confounded by the word “is”, proclaimed “oral sex” wasn’t “sex” (wouldn’t this be the same as green apples aren’t apples?) and stated he smoked pot but didn’t “inhale”.  Now I am certainly not an “expert” on marijuana but if you don’t “inhale” what is the point?

Of course when you struggle with “is” I guess anything is possible…and boy howdy “is” it!

We are now in 2015 and the wife of the man who defined “oral sex” as not being “sex” (while “not” having sex with “that woman”) wants to be President.

Don’t laugh.  Millions of Americans “is” willing to vote for her.

I have no doubt they are inhaling.

But wait there’s more.

The brother of the guy who left the greatest military in history in the hands of “Insane” also wants to be President.

No no stop laughing.

This is true and according to polling (I’m guessing they are polling the same people they weekly ask about their job status) the brother of the man who struggled to pronounce nuclear is leading all Republican “hopefuls”.

It appears an epiphany is in order.

I am done blaming Curly, Moe, and Barry.

Let us put the responsibility of their behavior exactly where it belongs.

On us.

We put them there.

We’ve allowed them to convince us that to be safe we had to ignore the laws of America.

We’ve been convinced drugs are good, saving money is bad, and hard work is for the foolish.

That climate change is controlled by human consumption but adding millions of consuming illegal “immigrants” will somehow save the day.

That never ending debt, war, and greed will bring us peace and prosperity.

It appears we need a fifth grader…we may be better off with a child leading us.

Although two more years of Common Core and they may not understand “is” either.

Still, with the leader of the Choom Gang attempting to shoot par as often as possible I have no doubt more kids will learn to inhale.

That will be one thing Net Neutrality certainly won’t slow down.

Ahh America…just leave the door shut and open a window to a new path, a brighter day.

Free will still prevails here.

Let us gather our people and ensure Freedom still exists in the future.

One voice at a time.

This is OUR country!!!

Google, Story Connection TV…and the Tom Sullivan Show

To whom much is given much is expected.

I was given the gift of being born an American and blessed with two parents who loved me.

Much was given.  Much is expected.

On Monday I sat with and was interviewed by a lovely woman (Danna Dennis Wilberg)and her talented crew (Lisa Farr et al) and recorded two television shows for Story Connection TV that will soon be released on Access Sacramento.

Wonderful people, wonderful time.

I arrived early and was rewarded with a 45 minute conversation with Danna.  She had many questions about Late Bird and the time seemed to fly by as we talked about my growing up in America, our current plight with government, and the awakening of our nation.  I’d heard many positive things about Danna from the effusive Michele Smith (publisher/publicist) and was delighted to find out they were all true and then some. I look forward to seeing her team’s collective talent on the small screen very soon.

We will of course post it on the website, www.aleadernotapolitician.com (created by the talented Onyx Pike), Facebook, and YouTube for all to see.

We keep moving the message.

One voice,  one video (thank you Jerry Galerkin), one share, one TV show at a time:)

Speaking of moving the message on Tuesday I had two minutes, via the telephone, on the Tom Sullivan Show in New York. (Syndicated,Fox News, KFBK Local Sacramento Station)

He’d just spent 30 minutes talking about our corrupt government and how everyone was bought and paid for on the radio.  A wonderful American had called in and told him to check out Jason Kraus.  At that point Tom said my name almost a dozen times over the airwaves (we thank you Tom) and then followed that up each time by telling the audience Jason Kraus doesn’t have a prayer.  Who is Jason Kraus he kept asking, why haven’t I heard about him?  After Googling Jason Kraus he still couldn’t find me.

For the record I Googled Jason Kraus.

I was fifth and seventh on the first page.

I also Googled Jason Kraus for President.

I was the top six…on the FIRST PAGE.

Not so difficult Mr. Sullivan.  No so difficult.

(Tom Sullivan Show, (866) 859-2788, Monday thru Friday Noon to 3:00 Standard Pacific Time in case anyone would like to explain how easy it is to find Jason Kraus, share our message, provide him an explanation on how Google works, or just give him some love.  Eeyore probably just needs a hug from Americans on the Freedom Train:)

Nevertheless after a couple of minutes of Tom on the Tom Sullivan Show telling millions of listeners (hopefully…and again thank you Tom) that I had no chance and was going to get crushed (which one is it brother Sullivan?  No chance or getting crushed? Getting crushed implies I have a chance) I decided I’d had enough and called the show.

After a short two minute chat whereby we exchanged “pleasantries” Tom took his opportunity to wish me luck and then the phone went dead.

A little later I heard him say again because I don’t have or won’t accept millions, if not billions of dollars, my offer of service to America will go unaccepted.

WRONG!!!

I have made the call and will continue to make the call currently for 10 million voices.  3 percent of the American population to join me in doing what all of you do so well.

Serve America!

We have no room for the cynical, the complaining, and as I’ve written before the Eeyore Effect.

Let’s be very clear here.  We aren’t asking PERMISSION!

This is OUR country!

This is the land of the free, the home of the brave!

The birthplace of the fierce, the loyal, the strong.

Just keep telling us no way or it will never going to happen.

You’re only fueling the fire. (Not that we need it.)

Just keep on whining and complaining about our problems while the rest of us get to work, one voice at a time.  Stay focused on the television and very soon you will see the greatness of America ROARING before your very eyes!

Because this much I know.  New American Brothers and Sisters are joining with us everyday.  We grow in scope, in size, in solidarity.  We protect the weak and laugh in the faces of the wrong.

Our swords are sharpened and our pens are flowing as voice after voice screams out:

I AM AN AMERICAN!

Much was given.  Much is expected.

Those expectations shall be met.

I pledge my allegiance to the United States of America.

God shed his grace on thee.

Human Trafficking, Selfie Sticks, a Coke and a Smile

I refer to it as the 80 -20 rule.  Eighty percent of you agree with what I am saying on a regular basis.  You are strong, fearless, and knowledgeable of what is happening in today’s society and around the world. You offer support, respectful insight, and information while spreading our message all over America.

You read the entire column.

Even our responsible first time readers, which we have every day, don’t finish the current column and then opine, “well you seem to understand the problems (thanks Sheldon Cooper) but how would you fix it?”

Our first time readers already know we have problems, recognize their own voice, words, and frustration, and exercise their energy and belief in personal responsibility and take THIRTY SECONDS to surf down the page or go to our website to find lo and behold the answers to all of their questions have been covered in column after column or video for the last SIX MONTHS.

This is you.  This is the 80 percent.  American men and women who get up at the crack of dawn every day and return home after sunset from a long day of work.  A hard but meaningful eight to ten to twelve to sometimes fourteen hour day of American sweat and equity without complaint.

You live in the real world and do what needs to be done because it needs to be done!

You don’t need me to explain things.  You don’t need to be led to water.

You are carrying the water for millions of others and only drink when absolutely necessary because that’s what Americans do!

Our predicament is understood by you on a visceral and financial level.  You know these things aren’t “complicated” or impossible to fix.

It takes ethics and perseverance.

Two things all of you have.

That’s why we refer to it as Shoulder to Shoulder.  We are in this together gathering one voice at a time.  No responsible voice is more or less important than the next.  We need them all and lovers of America are gathering, hungry to replace oppression with freedom.

Then we have the twenty percent.

Fifteen percent still support Obama.  This is an egregious error because it hardens the rest of us in our belief that they simply will not learn.  They have the capacity but choose to not deal in facts and reality.

We are a forgiving people but when we as a society understand their behavior is due to ignorance rather than intellect our compassion disappears.  I have warned about the pendulum swinging back for quite a while.

Energy of any kind doesn’t build momentum and then stop where you think it should.  When the box has been wound and wound no one of the “progressive” mind set should be surprised when Jack is in their face.

Every action has a reaction and the abuse laid upon the American people by Republican and Democratic politicians and those who continue to support these overt liars is now searching for an outlet.

The anger coming with this momentum is going to be tremendous.

The collapsing systems all around us will only increase America’s frustration.

Let me give you an example of ignorance rather than intellect.  I just finished reading a column in the Huffington Post.  Yes I know.  But I make it point to read “HuffPo”, Salon, and listen to as much of MSNBC as I can stomach.

Although I appreciate different opinions…propaganda and out right lies are a threat to freedom.

I watch, read, and listen to ascertain whether or not the progressive/oppressive mind set is barreling further off the rails.  Friends close enemies closer and although I hate to say it some of these people are enemies of freedom.

Nothing wrong with America.  Definitely something wrong with some Americans.

The column in HuffPo started out with a complete rewrite of American history followed by a layering of racism or as it is called these days, “white guilt”, “white privilege”, or white man bad”.  The writer then moved on to explain how America is living on borrowed time because of the Bible thumpers, climate deniers, and slavery.

Yes slavery.

Apparently no one has gotten over it, never mind the fact, that most people under the age of 35 couldn’t tell you anything about the Emancipation Proclamation, by whom this was proclaimed, or in what CENTURY this took place.

Nope…slavery alive and well.

Well…part of that is correct.

Slavery is alive and well and happening right now through our border.  It’s called Human Trafficking and some young girl or woman was just sold to the highest bidder.

So yes slavery does exist.

Maybe the writer should be focusing on what’s happening TODAY rather than centuries ago.  But then again that wouldn’t fit the agenda of self-loathing and the propping up of the current failure in the White House who is probably golfing somewhere.

Selfie Stick Slick who meets with Fruit Loop bathers and Pimps with Limps is ready to approve a Nuclear Arms deal with Iran.

Sounds about right.

Finally we have the 5 percent.  These are the people who abhor Obama, complain nonstop about all politicians and rant over and over that we need “regular” Americans in politics.

When one is found, willing to put themselves on the line in service to America…the 5 percent attack.

They won’t do any research.  They won’t listen to their friends.  They won’t bother getting involved because “it will never happen” or what does this “regular” person know about politics.  They moan about the problem but are unwilling to help when a new way arrives.  They’d rather gripe than take the time to really do something and we certainly won’t see them putting their NAME on the line.

I call this the “Eeyore Effect”.

We all know some of these people.  What’s amazing to me is how impressed they are with their own intelligence and life experience. They have all the answers never mind the fact that it’s America who carries them to water and holds them as they drink so they don’t drown in their own self-righteous indignation.

I actually prefer the Obama supporters to the Eeyores.  At least we know where the Selfie Stick supporters stand.

The Eeyores cause much more damage due to their Trojan Horse belief system.

As I’ve said plenty of times.  I am not here to convince.  I am here to inspire.

If you need convincing of our issues or think things are just fine…well…Hillary, Elizabeth, Jeb, or Marco would all appreciate you sending them a check.

They all take money, are career politicians, get paid by our tax dollars, and love the border just the way it is.

But if you are tired of the lies, the debt, slavery, and the overt disrespect to our military and tax paying citizens…then join us.

Someone who knows me very well was asked a question recently.

“Did you think Jason would try something like this?”

With a small nod, “if you really know Jason you know this isn’t about him.  He’s a very private person and I am a bit surprised he is willing to share so much about his life.”

They continued with a wry smile, “but once Jason says he is going to do something either get on board or get out of the way.  He’ll run you over.”

As I’ve told people many times I will not stop.  But the statement above is true.  This isn’t about me.  It never was, is, or will be.  It’s about America.  It’s about you.  It’s about us.

It’s about the 80 percent who show up every day proclaiming for the world to hear,

“We Are Americans and we love OUR country!”

So to all you Obama acolytes and Eeyore ingenues…

Have a Coke and a smile.

The Freedom Train is coming through.

California Dreaming about Agua

For decades the “environmentalists” (see Democratic Party) in California have shut down any new construction for dams, reservoirs, dredging, etc.  denying incredibly important infrastructure needed to supply the most important need to the survival of the human animal.

Water.

“It’s bad for the environment.”

For decades illegals from many countries have flocked to California.  Although this is a crime the “Amnesty” groups (see Democratic Party) have not only looked the other way but have created “sanctuary cities” and welcomed criminal behavior into their cities for the California and American taxpayer to pay for.

“They are fleeing bad environments”.

For anyone who doesn’t know after Ronald Reagan’s “Amnesty” the great State of California went from Republican to Democrat.  The Democrats continued to allow and encouraged the flooding of illegals predominately coming from Mexico and other countries south of our border.

Now for those of us who are responsible humans you know you cannot overload one side of the apple cart.  If you do it will turn over.

An Op Ed in a major newspaper recently stated, according to NASA, California has about one year of water left.

Say that again?

According to NASA, California has about one year of water left.

You mean the California that grows food for America?  The California that has the largest economy of all the United States?  The California that has elected a Democrat to every top position in the State and a Democratic Super-Majority in both the Senate and House?

Yep…that’s the one.

Crazy, huh?

Oh it gets a little bit more special than just crazy.

See this collection of Democratic thinkers continue to force more and more cities to build more and more “affordable housing”.  The entire State was ordered to ration water last year but apparently we still have enough water to build tens of thousands of apartments, duplexes, and single family homes all over the Golden State.

Don’t have enough water for the current citizens?  What to do?  Let’s build more housing and offer driver’s licenses to illegals so they will come from all over the world!

Yea! Good thinking!

What is truly bizarre is I haven’t even mentioned the most asinine thing.  Although much of California could be labeled a desert (historically little or no water) the Democrats have decided that this isn’t a man made problem created by poor planning and over-population.

Nope…this is a really long drought!

Should we tell them?

Deserts don’t have droughts!  They are called deserts for a reason!

Besides Democrats and environmentalists what happened to your planning for Global Warming…err…Climate Change?

According to you the climate is changing (I agree.  It changes every day and will as long as the Earth is in place). Why haven’t you been preparing for this?  Don’t you people talk to each other?  Do you know what will happen if 40 million people run out of water legal or otherwise?  What that will do to our State, our Country, our civilization?

A human’s primary needs to survive are listed below in order of importance:

Water

Food

Shelter

Do you see where water is located on the list?  Yes Democratic leaders of California you are seeing that right.

It is number one.

What’s that?  It’s the Republicans fault?  The Republican politicians are guilty of many things but none of these things can be laid at their feet in California.

A Republican elected official in California can be spotted a little more frequently than the Auburn Dam.  For those of you across America reading this the Auburn Dam was never finished.

It begs the rhetorical question…how much water does an unfinished dam hold?

But finally we get to the end of the insanity…or do we?

Come on, this is California after all.  This isn’t going to happen.  This must be a scare tactic.  Just another panic piece.  Another racist, bigoted, women hating, propaganda piece put out by the homophobic Tea Party Christians hugging their Bibles and guns too tightly and waving their pesky American Flags on University Campuses!

I’ll bet this was probably a Faux News story!

What’s that?

The LA Times?

Huh?

Nevertheless there has to be a plan.  There is no way Democratic policies could ruin an entire State.  I mean we know about Detroit but that’s in Michigan.

Oh yeah…I do remember hearing about Stockton and San Bernardino having major financial problems, and of course the Federal Government is 18 trillion in debt but still there is no the way the powers that be will let this happen.

This is California!  We live here!  Let’s finish the article.  What is the California contingency plan according to the author from U.C. Irvine?

“Staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.”

Yep…sounds about right.  Hypocrites, criminals, and liars all in desperate prayer.

Don’t you just love democracy?

Lies, Obama, and choices…our choices.

“There’s a reason we don’t lie to each other.”

“What’s that Mom?”

My mom smiled at me.  “Beside it being wrong nothing good ever comes from it.”

That made sense to me even as a five year old.

I’ve always listened to my body.  If I want to do something and nothing goes off in my brain I know I am good to go.

Working hard…great!

Hitting home runs…better!

Holding my wife’s hand…the best.

As a child I was playing with a neighborhood kid.  His name was Scott.  We called him Scotty Waddy Doodle.  I have no idea why.  We were kids.

At Scotty Waddy Doodle’s house one day his mother told him to come in.  It was time for dinner.  We’d been playing with Scotty’s toys and he had one toy I really liked.  When he cleaned up and went in the house he took all his toys with him except the one I really liked.

“See you tomorrow Jay,” Scotty said and went into the house.

“See you tomorrow Doodle,” I said as he closed the door. I stared at the door for a second and then at the toy on the ground.  I was only in 2nd grade but my mind started rationalizing my thoughts.  Maybe he left it there for me to take.  Obviously he doesn’t care about it.  He just left it outside.  My little mind kept working until it was satisfied.  I picked it up, put in my pocket, and walked home.

Now, I knew what I had just done was wrong.  Hence all the mental turmoil. Just like the rest of us (except for psychopaths) I knew I was doing something wrong.  But I did it anyway.

Later on that night I was playing with the toy at my house.  My mom looked at me.

“Where did you get that toy Jason?”

“From Scotty’s, mommy.”

“Did he give it to you?”

“No but he doesn’t care,” I started out.

“What do you mean?”

“He left it outside…besides he has lots of toys.”

“Did you ask him if you could borrow it?”

“No.”

“So you took it without permission?”

It was then that I knew I was caught.

Not wrong.

Caught.

I knew I was wrong when I took it.

I looked at my Mom as I started to cry.  I don’t know who was more upset.  I’d never done anything like this in my life and the look on my Mom’s face was one of shock.  I was a rule follower.  An easy child.  Where did she go wrong?  Did she raise a kleptomaniac?

“Stop crying and tell me the truth.  Lying only makes things worse.”

I admitted I took it.  She marched me down to Scotty Waddy Doodle’s house and watched as I proceeded to knock on the door and cry an apology to Doodle’s mother.

My mother apologized as well and I then cried all the way home.

“What were you thinking when you stole that toy Jason?” my mom asked me.

“I just wanted it.”

“That’s not how life works.  You don’t take from others.  We never lie, we never cheat, we never steal.”

Now I knew all of these things already and this was the one and only time I’d ever stolen anything.  I knew it was wrong.  I knew I shouldn’t do it.  I even felt bad doing it…but did it anyway.  Fortunately there were immediate consequences and I learned a valuable lesson.  Nothing positive can ever grow from lying, cheating, or stealing.

Nothing positive.

It’s why “The Affordable Health Care Act” or “Obama doesn’t Care” is causing great damage.

It’s thousands of pages of cheating and stealing from taxpayers based on lies.

We have to pass it before we find out what’s in it… is a lie.  They all knew what was in it.  They WROTE it!

You can keep your doctor, insurance, etc.  This has been called the biggest lie of the year by many in the media.

Everyone’s premiums will go down.  Nope.

And my favorite.  The Gruber.  We have to lie because the Democratic elected politicians and voters are too stupid to vote for this if they knew the truth.

Even Gruber knew the DEMOCRATIC voters wouldn’t want this.

Lies upon lies upon lies.

It doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court does or doesn’t do with the Unaffordable Care Act.  We don’t trust them anymore anyway.

But the most dangerous lie is one I hear every day.  It isn’t Islam or Obama, crushing debt or corruption.  The most dangerous lie is this:

There’s nothing we can do about it.

Do we have problems…yes. To those who think it is impossible to restore our nation…you couldn’t be more wrong.

But if your only recourse is to complain relaxed in your easy chair, then you are part of the biggest and most dangerous lie ever.

Everything is possible…in the United States of America.

Everything.

For whom the bell tolls

It is a troubling thing to listen to “educated” people defend Islam.  Many will point to the 1st Amendment as a Constitutional Right to practice this particular belief system.

It isn’t.

Systemic oppression is never protected by the 1st Amendment.

Never.

I don’t need to cover the absurdity happening all over the world right now in the name of Mohamed.  Everyone, even Barbara Boxer, recognizes the murder, raping, and pillaging happening.  Obama’s ignorance or acceptance of this oppression shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Although he has lied about many things at many times his feelings towards Islam are very clear.  It’s why it was so easy for him to sit in a church for years listening to a horrendous person blast America.

Obama agrees.

Please ladies and gentlemen.  We should all be aware of this now.  As we say “this isn’t new news.”

What I find troubling is the conversation taking place about the “moderate Muslims”.  “Why aren’t moderate Muslims crying out against this barbaric behavior?”

Their silence tells you everything you need to know.  But let us simply discuss the human relationship dictated by Muslim practice.  Every country on the planet that is overwhelmingly controlled by either Sunni or Shiite Muslims is abusive and oppressive to women and children.  Women and children are property to be used or disposed of at the whims or behest of men.  Does this mean EVERY single Muslim man abuses the women and children in their lives?  Of course not.  Not every German under Hitler’s reign agreed with Nazism.  But the overwhelming majority either tacitly agreed or kept quiet.  Complicit by acceptance.

This is Islam.

Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc are all Islam dominated societies where women and children have no rights and are punished/killed if attempting to practice their free will.  The sexual abuse, genitalia mutilation, and beatings of women and female children are exactly what evil looks like unchecked.

Again this is Islam.

Do these things happen to every little girl in these societies?

Do they have to?

One is too much for me.

There will be some who will argue these things happen under Catholicism or century old practices of Christianity.  Your superfluous absurdity will fall on deaf ears.  Although I have no use for the Catholic Church I do believe in the greatness of Jesus.  But both things are irrelevant as I am neither a Catholic nor a Christian.

I am an American.

I am truly amazed at the lack of understanding of this oppression by American women who are voting for Democratic candidates.  From the President down I can name multiple elected Democratic politicians who support this oppression.

Democratic female voters.  Although I am not here to defend Republican politicians if you think they are more oppressive than current Democratic policies and statements you don’t know the soul of your own party.

Republican politicians will look like Sunday school teachers in comparison to Sharia Law.

“It will never happen here.”

It already is.

Every day as America is bombarded with more illegals or “refugees” the less safe and secure the female population becomes.  Not to mention our children.

I have written about this before but the influx of humans into America are coming from very violent societies.  They are bringing this violence with them.  This isn’t an opinion.  These things are getting worse every day.

When you combine this type of oppression with the incredible debt Obama has placed on us things become very simple to understand…and it isn’t pretty.

When our own rights are being used to protect humans from other countries it is only a matter of time before Freedom as we know it does not reign.

Freedom is an agreement among citizens.  If enough citizens do not honor the agreement then it becomes moot.  Our courts, elected leaders, and our own money are being used against us.

This is truly what the 2nd Amendment is about.  But it is much deeper than a gun.  The 2nd Amendment is our insurance policy in place to protect our agreement.  The 2nd Amendment isn’t about Freedom.

It’s about Free Will.

You may, as I will, go to dinner tonight or see a movie.  Everything appears okay.  Both of these things and many others were taking place in Berlin as bombs were dropped there during World War II.

There are many voices who believe we are past the point of return.  That America will require some type of revolution or civil war to return us to the path of Freedom.

War and all forms of it are losing propositions for all parties.  Neither side of humans engaging in battle win.  One side simply loses more.  We’ve been lead here by horrible decisions and worse behavior including our own apathy.

As I am not a patient man when it comes to others attempts at controlling my life I have to believe we still have a path, narrow that it may be.  I have to believe this and am here now as I have been for the last two years providing a new message and a better way through individual responsibility and systemic change.

A rebirth of America through work.

Not war.

But as the debt grows heavier on our shoulders and the violence increases in our towns we must move faster.  Our speed must be increased and our message of the greatness of America must quicken.

We cannot spend time on debate.  We aren’t asking permission.  Cast off the foolish who waste our time in needless and endless chatter.  We haven’t the luxury of the ill or uninformed.  Harden your minds and your bodies for the task at hand.

Embrace your lineage as descendants of the greatest collection of behavior in the history of the human animal.

Live well, speak freely, and render onto to those the love so earned, so cherished so given to us from the Earth and Above.

We hold these truths to be self-evident that we are FREE and to remain this way action must be taken.

Each one of you are now being called.  Not by me.  You are being called from within.  From the one place we all return to.  Our internal voice.

We cannot allow this to become a time “that tries a man’s soul”.

But we must move forward, faster than ever in advance of the brutality nipping at America’s heals.

For whom the bell of Freedom tolls.

It tolls for thee.

It tolls for America…if you are willing to roar.

Roar with me.

Common Core and Net Neutrality

How about some humor today my friends courtesy of our fearless leader and his faithful minions:)

I had to actually laugh at a comment from an Obama supporter.  Yes they still do exist.  As with most of these comments they ignore the facts and just rant about me.  Makes me feel so warm and special:) It would be truly fascinating if I hadn’t heard much much worse in my life directly from felons.

Obama supporter you aren’t even close!

Just do me a favor…mix it up a little bit. Try giving me a fact.  Just one.  Not going to hold you to more than one.  Just one!

I love the statement “just more right wing nut job bull*&%*”.

One Obama supporter wrote this after I’d finished excoriating George Bush:)

Boy that Common Core is working well.

Speaking of Obama policies and lingo.  Why is everything labeled in mediocrity?

“Fair” society.

“Common” Core.

Net “Neutrality”

“That is the true genius of America, a faith in the simple dreams, the insistence of small miracles.”  Barack Obama

The guy even dreams in an average way.

“Simple dreams?”  Why dream at all?

“Small miracles?”

If it’s a miracle Barry…it’s a pretty big deal.  Besides how would you know about anything that had to do with truth…or genius.

Obama is a powerfully underwhelming presence.  Like mold or gangrene.  Parasitic in nature.  You don’t realize it until it’s time to tent the house or cut off your leg.

But back to the ever decreasing but still wildly factually erratic Obama supporter.  One individual did try.  I will give him credit.  It probably took him at least thirty minutes to explain how the debt, 18 trillion, was only 3 percent of our GDP, 16 trillion.  He was incredibly serious and aside from some typos and missed punctuation really believed 18 trillion was only 3 percent of 16 trillion.

Well…I have to admit I did read that part twice.  I know I know.  But you know what’s crazy?  I’ll bet he can hold a dime bag in his hands and know whether he’s being shorted! lol.  Yes of course I know all Obama supporters aren’t on drugs but it sure would explain a lot.

To that guy’s credit at least he tried.  In general they don’t even bother.

Usually it’s words like “rasist” or “write wing”.  Actually it’s closer to “writ winge” but wasn’t sure if everyone would understand their clever usage of verbiage.

Because I care I do my best.

Now this doesn’t mean I engage them. No no.  I never feed the animals.  It’s time consuming and frankly depressing.  As I’ve said before I am looking for like minds which we are finding daily.

But never fear the Obama supporter is near!

In one column I specifically mentioned everything Obama said was false and could be found on VIDEO.  Yes that’s right VIDEO.

Obama supporter comment:  This guy (me) needs to “read” more.

WOW

Another fearless supporter actually wrote that “Republicans” (don’t know how many time I need to say I’m not a Republican…I’m an American) have their own “Christian Sharia Law” trying to control a woman’s body.

Now this statement is a special kind of insanity that is only good for one thing.  It explains how Obama was re-elected.

In conclusion the ever vigilant Obama supporter doesn’t just share their opinions with me.  Not that long ago I watched and listened on television to a young woman who was marching and yelling in the streets.  A reporter asked her a simple question.

“Why are you out here marching?”

Seems like a fair question to me.  Maybe to protest something, maybe get some exercise…maybe just on her way to the corner store for a “loosey”.

She stared into the camera, blinked twice, and then told the truth:

“I have no idea.”

Well said Obama supporter.  Well said.

Lo and behold the power of the “true genius”.
