In Memoriam

How do you say thank you, to humans you’ve never met in this world, and never will?

How?

How do you say thank you to those still on Bunker Hill?

At Gettysburg?

Those still on the beach at Omaha or Normandy?

Those still located around the 38th Parallel.

How do you say thank you to those still in the Mekong Delta?

Those whose last breath came in Kandahar or Mosul?

I can’t.

I don’t have the words to say thank you, to those who paid the ultimate price, that Americans may be born into a free country.

I don’t have the words to say thank you to those who are the reason the United States of America exists and is the greatest country in the history of man.

I don’t have the words.

I believe in God but I am not a religious man.  When my time is over on Mother Earth I will have but one request.

That I may join, if only for a moment, those precious souls that gave of their blood so mine could flow freely and without fear.

Just a moment before I am shuttled to wherever I am destined so two words can leave my lips to every individual known as an American Soldier that never returned to their home town, never felt the love and appreciation of Americans while walking in a parade on Veterans Day or the 4th of July.

Never saw their families again.

Two words.

Thank you.

It isn’t enough and never will be but as long as I am here, I will humbly serve those to the best of my ability whom served us, to the best of theirs.

Please God, bless those, who have blessed us, with so much.

We Have Your Six Mr. President

ABC ran a long piece on the “philanthropy” of George Soros and how he is currently being demonized due to anti-semitism.

Insert laughter here.

George Soros supported and still supports Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the traitors known as the Democratic Party.

There is a word for this and it isn’t philanthropy.

Enough said on this as words alone probably aren’t going to fix this problem.

On the other hand Michael Flynn has been excoriated by the press and many politicians.  I’d throw in the voters of the Democratic Party but who am I kidding.  They have no idea who he is.  Most of them think Bernie Sanders is actually related to Hugo Chavez.

They might be on to something here.

George Soros is an enemy of Freedom.

Michael Flynn has served the freest country on the planet (currently) to the best of his ability.

Donald Trump is trying to but the aforementioned traitors have a lot too lose and are willing to throw out the baby, the bath water, the tub, and even burn down the house in order to stay out of jail or off the gallows. Through the process of transitioning from a billionaire businessman to the President of the United States Mr. Trump has made some mistakes.  It’s understandable.  He’s sitting at the top of a government that is corrupt to and at its very core.

He knows it.

We know it.

They know it.

Yet life continues on everyday.  I know it does as I am a part of it.  I’ve mentioned this in the past but with all the “drama” coming out of any and all forms of government every twenty-four hour cycle I still go to work and am passed by Mercedes, BMW’s, lifted trucks that seem to be the size of a small tank, and little beaters that drive on their spare tire and without current registration tags or most likely insurance.  All of these vehicles can be found at drive-thru’s ordering and consuming sixteen hundred calorie meals (twelve if they go “diet”) enough sodium to be referred to as a lake, and enough fat to float a boat on the aforementioned water grouping.

What did the TV dinner start?

Television and pre-made food.

The downfall of a once great society.

Then again there is always hope.

Marijuana is almost legal and a cure for everything!

Now that our savior has arrived we can do any and all things without fear of persecution, prosecution, or decomposition.

Drugs.  Who knew they’d be better than the Bill of Rights.

They aren’t.

A little while ago I read a book about the fall of Germany during World War II. As bombs were falling on Berlin, Germans were still going to work, still preparing meals, and still falling in love.  They were also sprinting towards the American Army and surrendering as fast as they could knowing the Russians were coming and the atrocities committed by the Nazis on Russians, particularly women, were going to be reciprocated upon them.  It was an interesting perspective that humans continued to drink water, read books, and have babies even in the middle of ducking for cover.

Of course those Germans who dashed towards the United States soldier ended up with a better lot in life.

Many of those who sat still and did nothing ended in a place called East Germany surrounded by humans who preached “community” and service to the “greater” Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

In other words Democratic Socialism.

Bernie, Hugo, and Joseph.

Two horrible humans holding a place for a third.

Coming full circle Donald Trump is and has done some very good things.  The border is slowly being secured.  Deportations are happening.  Americans feel dramatically better about our country than last year regardless of what Al NBC Jazeera says.

Yes he’s made a few mistakes.  He should have fired Comey immediately and kept Flynn indefinitely if only to show who is in charge.

With all that said and as we go about our daily lives in the greatest country in the history of man there’s really only one question.

In our last election we had a binary choice.

Could you imagine the alternative?

Sadly the Democrats, RINOS, Liberals,”Tribalists” and seemingly endless groups of traitors known as the media continue to push the agenda of impeachment and the cannibalizing of America.

I guess they still haven’t got the memo so let me say it again.

CLEARLY.

President Trump isn’t the “stick”.

He’s the carrot we’ve offered you parasites.

If you are unwilling to eat your vegetables, trust me, we will make our way back to Washington D.C.  We will gather on the steps of OUR House and walk through the halls if required.

You see you pathetic cowards, WE ARE THE STICK.

We are also the torches, the pitchforks, and the rope.

Keep yapping about impeachment and lot of you are going to meet us up close and personal.

Very close.

Very personal.

Continue forward President Trump.

We have your front and your back.

The United States of America is our country.

OUR COUNTRY.

Mother’s Day

Everyday something new, and quite frankly bizarre, seems to happen in these United States.

Each morning “and as I rise” (Alabama) I no longer check to see whether there is  “new” news.  There doesn’t seem to be an original thought on television anymore and the humor has disappeared completely.

Everyday we have “journalists” who’ve never written a cogent sentence in their entire lives repeating nonsensical blather.

Every night we have “comedians” with writing staffs who believe Nazi references and literally crying is what Americans now find entertaining.

We don’t.

It goes even further than that as most of us in America have finally arrived at sensory overload and are now choosing to not listen to anything coming from the Boob Tube.

How do we know this?

Rating are horrible across the spectrum.

There will always be a “winner” when two or more entities vie for the same customer but interestingly enough, we the customer, have decided that poison comes in many shapes and sizes and this does include at least one square box in virtually everyone’s home.

Yet, as they say, time marches on.

We measure time in many ways.  The most common is minutes and hours.  Seconds move too quickly for most activities to matter unless you run track or did at Chico State and then you want less seconds not more. My superstar nephew will understand that better than most.

Although months are part of our measurement equation, we as humans, really look at time through two prisms.

Days and years.

We remember very specific days, that are important to us, or are important to others, that we do indeed remember.

There also appears to be subjects that most of us pay little attention, that some in our society believe, we should.

For a year to pass without a leap 365 days must occur.  In those days we celebrate “incredible” feats like Chicken Dance Day, Root Canal Appreciation Day, and Nylon Stockings Day.  Putting aside the nylons, who doesn’t like a quality chicken dance or appreciate a good root canal.

We just completed the month of April which began with One Cent Day, Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, and Find A Rainbow Day.

I wish some people had only one scent although I didn’t realize this was something that needed to be cheered.  On the other hand Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, especially grape, could happen, at least for me, once a week.

It doesn’t but it could.

Find a Rainbow Day?

I prefer Melting Snowflake Week.

Fifty-two weeks of it to be precise.

Wednesday April 5th was Deep Dish Pizza Day followed by New Beer’s Eve and completed on Friday April 7th with Walk to Work Day.

That joke writes itself.

As April wound to a close Pig in a Blanket Day was followed by Malaria Day.

True story.

With the arrival of May it appears the build up to a maternal moment was carefully planned.

Both Mother Goose Day and Mother Ocean Day arrive early in May.

Not sure if the geese care and it seems a bit redundant to attach Mother to Ocean.

I’m pretty sure Mother Earth has this covered but then again what do I know?  I’m just a guy.

Still every year, one day in May, we set aside a day to celebrate those that we call Mom, Mother, or in some cases “what’s up Gladys?”

We send cards, candy, and gifts.  We take them out to breakfast, lunch, or even dinner if someone is running late or hasn’t planned properly.

We tell stories from years past that were funny at the time or have now become laughable.

We say Happy Mother’s Day and thank you.  Thank you for the days of getting us out of bed before the sun rose and off to school with full bellies.  Thanks for brushing our hair especially when we fought you the entire time.  Thank you for requiring us to take bathes and later showers whether we wanted to or not.

Thank you for teaching us to read and “doing” our numbers with us.

Thank you for Christmas gifts that were wanted and the socks, nightshirts, and puppet show building that wasn’t.

Thank you for re-creating Aunt Millie’s fudge (I like yours better) making sure we always ate our fruits and vegetables (who knew it could snow on broccoli)  and not freaking out when we hoisted the dogs into the tree house (and couldn’t figure out how to get them down).

Thank you for listening when I needed to talk and letting me be when I didn’t.

We thank the mothers of America who know that these United States are a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy.

Who know the truth isn’t a sometimes thing and hard work doesn’t stop at the end of a ten hour shift.

That being a mom is so much more than a “job”.  It’s an adventure.  An adventure filled with success and love, sleep deprivation, Friday night collapses on the couch and crazy Sunday morning hair.

It’s filled with tiny bodies jumping on the bed begging to be held followed by the teenage years of “please drop me off down the block and stop trying to kiss me” moments.

There are moments of pride and relief with graduations and weddings, empathy and tears with divorce, and of course the ultimate “payback” as I’ve heard it said many times.

Grand-children.

All of the fun and none of the calories.

So to all the mothers on this day, their ONE day, I say Happy Mother’s Day and thank you.  Thank you for the bake sales, the car washes, the silver dollars in Vegas that were traded for stuffed animals at Circus Circus and for chaperoning the school field trips…I think.

Thanks Mom.  Between Duffy Moon and the Little Engine that Could I always knew “I could do it” or at least “I think I can, I think I can, I think can.”

This I know.

I love you.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Breaking the law is no longer a crime

James Comey sat in front of the world and stated that Huma Abedin had committed multiple crimes and yet not one politician called for her indictment.

Not one.

Comey furthered his part of ruining America and proving that emasculation does indeed physically exist by proclaiming to be “mildly nauseous”.

His willingness to openly proclaim for all to hear that crimes, many of them felonies, have been committed, yet nothing is being done about it, should be all we need to hear.

The man is so sure crimes were committed he didn’t even bother to use the attorney’s favorite word.

Alleged.

Thousands of classified documents were found on the laptop of a man who calls himself Carlos Danger.

Felonies. Plural.

Comey said they were taken from Hillary’s private server by Abedin.

Felonies. Plural.

Is intent needed to make these felonies?

No.

Crimes are crimes.  Why people do them becomes irrelevant when you have them 100% dead to rights otherwise every person charged with a crime could simply say “I had no idea that was illegal”, or “my intent wasn’t to rob the bank my intent was to pay off my bills.”

Intent matters in SENTENCING.

Indictments?

Zero.

Nauseous?

How about you make us sick Jimmy.  How about as we are laughing at you Jimmy there is no humor in our eyes.

Justice is supposed to blind.

Comey’s version gives us a complete view of what deaf and dumb look like as well.

This is nothing but B level acting and even worse writing.  Listening to Dianne Feinstein and Comey go back and forth like they hadn’t already worked out the particulars weeks ago was ridiculous.

Where are you Attorney General Jeff Sessions?

Putting aside Sessions (currently) these are stupid people and of course responsible minds must then ask.

What does that make us?

I have a friend.  A good man.   A man who served his community.  A man who did indeed put his life in jeopardy to help others.  He was railing on a few days ago telling me things that I’ve written about many times.  Crime is increasing, the debt is out of control, the border is killing our country.

“We need to do something,” he said.

I asked him if he could run a mile.

“No.”

Fight with his hands and feet longer than two minutes?

“Probably not,” he answered.

Do you own a weapon?

“No,” was his response.

Now I am not banging on my friend.  He is indeed a good man.  Handles his own business, pays his taxes and is very involved in the community but what if?

What if the crime increases so much it shows up at his door…or yours?

What if the debt debacle finally collapses and everyone attached to a Local, State, or Federal program no longer receives their check or if they do it isn’t enough to cover the basics like water, food, and shelter?

What if somebody tries to rob you without a weapon and you’re simply so out of shape you collapse from a lack of oxygen trying to fight them off?

What if someone points a gun at you and wants your most precious things?

What if breaking the law is no longer a crime?

I reminded my friend that sadly these horrific events happen every day in these United States.

Every single day.

Speaking of horrific humans Nancy Pelosi said this week that the new healthcare bill (that isn’t even close to being implemented) is a destruction of government.

Oh if only this was true.

If only this was true.

History is very clear.

Human behavior is easy to understand.

Part of hoping for the best is preparing for the worst.

Ill or unprepared humans have no hope at all.

Let that not be these United States.

Let that not be you.

To be an American moral choices must be made

As always there is a lot going on in the world.  Information and misinformation flows continuously.  The days of taking anything at face value are long gone.  I’ve received many questions from concerned Americans about what is happening to our country and what they can do to stop this runaway train.  Of course voting properly is the key but as we’ve all seen even doing this still doesn’t guarantee the correct decisions will be made.

Paul Ryan is the perfect example.

Yet here we are.  More questions than answers or answers that are incorrect, false, or outright lies.

How do we change this dynamic?

First we must understand our own needs.

For the most part water, food, and shelter is being fulfilled in these United States.

Security has slowly been weakening over the last three decades and is the primary reason Donald Trump was elected.

Still the reason we are having so much pain right now is the wildly damaging ways we are attempting to meet our need to belong.

For decades American children have been told such things as oral sex isn’t sex, marijuana isn’t bad for you or is the same as drinking beer or wine, debt and deficits don’t matter, food is comfort, and certain crimes are acceptable.

Think about that as a lifestyle.

Sex, drugs, debt, criminality, and EBT cards.

Sounds like the Democratic Party.

Food is energy.  It isn’t comfort or love.  Love is the giving to others without expectation.

Hammering down a box of donuts isn’t love…or comfortable.

Talking about physical fitness and nutrition is now body shaming.

Type-Two Diabetes is now thought of as actual Diabetes.

It isn’t.

Diversity is no longer a responsible economic plan but rather synonymous with color of skin.

Bernie Sanders has become the voice of the millennials.

Black masks, black clothing, hijabs, and suppressing speech is now the measurement of fighting the “man”.

We wonder why the kids don’t want to talk to anyone anymore.

Energy is a physical thing.  It can be touched, used, and measured.

Your energy, and how much you have, depends upon your diet, amount of exercise, and your understanding of anatomy, specifically your own body.

All of this information is widely known and available at our fingertips.

What we do with it is the key.

“Government” isn’t our friend.  It never has been and never will be.

Until humans evolve into the process of “being” government will “be” a “necessary evil”.

Today’s government, especially in States like California and New York are no longer necessary yet are still evil.

La Raza, CAIR, and support for Hamas are all examples.

Sadly too many in these States do not recognize these names.

The hate, control, misogyny, bigotry and financial oppression raining down on American citizens in these States must be stopped.

Those who continue down the path of debt, drug usage, and obesity are now being hit with the reality of “only living once” as they are physically suffering and are clawing and screaming for things like medical care that they were unwilling to earn, causing others who have, to suffer by too many trying to live off systems, they never paid into.

What do we do?

We must understand the power of the Individual.  Your life is exactly what you make of it.  Each breath, each step, each word uttered must be put forward in service or in search of Freedom.

Only you can provide this.

The opportunity to do so has been granted by the generations before us.

We are Americans.

We must push forward to ensure that being an American always means more in America than it does around the world.

Freedom is a choice.

Choose wisely.

Your future, or whether you will have one, depends on it.

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free

It was the early nineties and some of my teammates and I were in a van riding to a baseball game in Southern California.  I don’t remember how the conversation began but one of my teammates started in about no longer being black but rather an African-American. This was the new verbiage being introduced reportedly by Jesse Jackson. I liked my teammate. He was kind of a quiet person (my kind of guy) who also happened to not play very much.  I always felt for the guys who didn’t play much.  It wasn’t like they didn’t want to be out there but this was college athletics not Little League.  The best play because most coaches need to win to keep their jobs.

I listened until he finished and then told him he was wrong.  As stated earlier I liked my teammate.  This wasn’t one of those yelling at each other conversations but I had facts (or so I thought) and I stated them clearly.

I had taken an anthropology class and in the class we had been taught that there were three types of humans.

Caucasoids, Mongoloids, and Negroids, not black, white, brown, or African-American.

I’d been given just enough information to sound as though I knew what I was talking about.

In today’s world this is called “education” and as we know “education” and knowledge are two different things.

We are Homo sapiens.

Colloquially known as humans.

This doesn’t change regardless of the color of our skin, the size of our skulls, one’s like or dislike of certain foods, or our ability or inability to dance.

Races created because of sociological or “social construct theory” is pure propaganda otherwise Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal would both have created different “races”.

The conversation ended with my “facts”.  I truly believed everything I was saying (I’d been “educated”) and when you are using verbiage that others aren’t familiar with (cue Bernie Sanders followers) it’s pretty easy to sound as though you are right.  Furthermore I knew (on this I was correct) that African-American was not a new type of human, or a nationality, as there was no nation called the United States of Africa-America.

As college aged adults my teammate and I were both introduced to skin color bigotry.

Mine came from those who called themselves Professor.

His came from someone who called himself Reverend.

Is it any wonder most of have zero respect for many of our elders?

Whether it’s too many in the Catholic Church covering up sexual abuse (still happening), thousands of physicians medicating hang nails (still happening), or most of our politicians lying about EVERYTHING (still happening) the concept of fact, truth, respect, and ethics has disappeared a long time ago.

I digress.

As stated earlier my teammate and I were both given false verbiage based on the color of a human’s skin.  Sadly this has only gotten worse.

Examples?

Of course.

How about Latino?  When asked what a Latino is, you will hear it all, including it is a “culture”.

What do you mean by culture?

Many will answer, “It’s the language spoken, the food, the music, etc.  The “culture”.”

Okay, so then Latinos would speak Latin right?

“Uh no…they speak Spanish,” is the usual response.

Then why are they called Latinos?

This is usually followed by a blank stare or “they come from Latin America,” with an eye roll.

You mean Central America?  What about South America? What about Mexico?

Return of blank stare.

Let’s come back to that one.  How about this?  Are Brazilians Latino?

“Yes. Brazilians are Latino,” they answer emphatically.

You know Brazilians speak predominately Portuguese?

“Uh…no I didn’t know that.”

You also mentioned food.  What exactly do you mean by that?

“You know, beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, hispanic food.” (Incredibly these conversations happen every day.  In fact every single one of us has heard a version of it over the airwaves in America. Taco Bell tells us repeatedly to “Make a run for the border”)

I like and consume all of those things.  If I eat them am I a Latino?

“NO!”

What if I eat all of those things and speak Spanish am I now a Latino?

“NO!”

Why not?

“Because you are white.”

There we have it.

The term Latino is skin color bigotry.

It means brown skin (La Raza) and for those of you who are a bit skeptical, this type of conversation happens every day in homes, businesses, on busses, and most commonly on-line.  We hear it about hair straightening, rap lyrics, or the media trying to feed us that the “Chinese people are boiling mad because one of their own was dragged off of a plane”.

The individual dragged off the United plane was reportedly from Vietnam but I guess “they all look the same” to the press.

Hence the term Asian-American.

More skin color bigotry and completely false as there is no nation called the United States of Asia-America.

Everything I just stated is completely true but because too many Americans are infested with another form of skin color bigotry known as “White Guilt” (yes this is actually a title of a book) the United States is not only struggling as a country but as a People as well.

As Americans.

As Humans attempting to Be.

Skin color has nothing to do with success or failure regardless of your personal opinion.  If this were true humans would group themselves by their own skin color and live happily ever after.

Both of these issues are based on behavior, not the evolutionary process of proximity to the sun over tens if not hundreds of thousands of years, but it takes a willingness to embrace the truth to stop all this ridiculousness.

Truth.

Something that will not happen as long as we continue to hyphenate these United States.

If after all this you still choose to put African, Asian, Irish, Mexican, or Guatemalan before American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those continents or countries and live there.

This is a FREE society, as in you are FREE to leave, at any time.

Your presence isn’t required or needed.

If after all this, skin color is your primary issue, I STRONGLY suggest you search out countries with humans whom you believe look like you.

Regardless of your color there are lots of options.

Your Constitutional Rights will disappear, protection by the most powerful military in the world will hasten to exist, a job might be hard to come by and water might be scarce but the color of your skin won’t matter anymore.  Your life won’t get better because of it, as it is behavior that will still dictate this, but OUR lives in America will benefit, as your behavior, is removed.

If after all this you still choose to put Islam or Muslim in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those countries that practice Sunni or Shiite Islam and are ruled by Sharia.  Your life will get dramatically worse as living under systemic oppression always has that effect but you can remove the American completely along with many of your “rights” as men, most of your “rights” as women and all of your Constitutional Rights as an American.

Finally if you choose to put Hispanic or Latino in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you stop as neither of these places are in existence.

Jesse Jackson is a bonafide moron to assume that only humans with black skin live on the continent of Africa but at least Africa can be found on a map.

The usage of Hispanic and Latino might be worse for those who use them, as they are both fictional labels created by hateful souls, whom have brainwashed too many humans, who are simply looking to meet their need to belong.

One last thought.  There’s no such thing as Native-American.

They’re called Chippewa, Seminole, Kickapoo, Apache, or wait for it…AMERICAN.

Hyphens are suppose to connect words, to bring ideas together, and by doing so, strengthen the concept.

They aren’t meant to be used to push the agenda of one by negating the other.

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free.

We are free or we are not.

We are Americans or we are not.

Freedom First.  Freedom Only.

America First.

AMERICAN ONLY.

Liberals in La La Land

Liberals before the Obama “red line” in Syria was enforced:

“Trump is a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigot who was elected because of Vladimir Putin.”

Liberals after:

“The bombs are beautiful (cue Brian Williams), Mr. Trump is now our President. Vladimir who?”

Liberals 24 hours later:

“Trump is getting us into a war with Russia.”

Liberals lost in space:

“Trump is wagging the dog.  I told you he was in Putin’s pocket.”

How about another?

Liberals on both coasts before an election on Tuesday to replace now CIA Director Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th Congressional District:

“We are winning and going to send a message to the hateful bigoted Trump!”

Liberals on both coasts after the election:

“The Republican candidate only won by seven points! We are on our way back!”

Once and for all it is time to proclaim that liberals are not Americans or sane.

Those that support La Raza, CAIR, Hamas, and create Sanctuary Cities to protect the free flow of human carnage through our open border by gangs like MS-13 are traitors and ignorant traitors at that.

Can’t we all just get along?

No.

I will never “get along” with child abuse, with rape, with human trafficking.

I will never “get along” with murder.

Benedict Arnold is probably the most famous American traitor of all time.  He wasn’t stupid.  He was ethically weak and because of this is now looked upon with scorn, at least by those of us who support America, and have heard of him.

Of course unlike brain dead Brian, Benedict Arnold was actually “under fire” and wounded in battle.

Something Williams and Hillary only dream of and then say out loud.

Liberals are stupid and I mean that in the strictest of definitions in that they are unable to learn.  What we have witnessed and continue to witness is the biological devolution of certain portions of the population in these United States.

A new version of Stockholm Syndrome has arrived due to too much tuning in, turning on, and dropping out combined with participation trophies and zero consequences.

They aren’t snowflakes.

They’re just flakes.

Then again how would a liberal know?

Punxsutawney Phil has a better understanding of the world.

Jason, you are being pretty Viagra on them right now.

I’m not being hard enough. (Thanks to the “mainstream media” and millions in advertising, I don’t have to explain that joke)

No American woman (or women in general) should ever support Islam.

No one who is homosexual should ever support Islam.

No one who is Jewish or connected to Judaism in any way should ever support Islam yet tens of millions of voting Americans who fall under these categories support the Party (Democratic) that supports Islam.

Let’s make this painfully clear.

Abortion is ILLEGAL under Islamic or Sharia Law yet that is the most important issue to tens of millions of Democratic voters.

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

Can’t you just see it now?  Finally a hand is raised from the liberal brethren (look it up libs) with a quizzical stare.

“What is Sharia Law? Who is this Shari person?”

Progressives don’t know who “Shari” is, or why she has her own laws, but they can tell you all about Kanye and Kim because Enquiring Minds want to know.

If the concept of devolving hasn’t already been shown, the stupidity of wearing black masks and make believe vaginas (on their heads, obviously a health and human services class is needed for these poor souls), should be more than enough to group these cowards into the five cans short of a six pack, one fry short of a happy meal, or a sandwich short of a picnic crowd.

In other words utensils not needed for those who don’t understand opposable thumbs.

The black mask stick carriers were too embarrassed to show their faces (hope for them yet) whereas the make believe vagina enthusiasts were loud and proud and traipsing around, with the Material Girl and the less talented Judd sister, cheering on Like a Virgin’s call for murder.

Maybe they were practicing for their ultimate show, 72 at a time, as each Sunni or Shiite male arrives at the gates of Allah or the Eight Doors of Jannah.

Apparently eight is enough.

Where is Dick Van Patten when you need him? What about Adam Rich? How many more entertainment references can I put in this column?

Astonishingly enough this is reading like a stand up comedy routine and yet is putridly all TRUE.

Fortunately Hope, along with Obama, has left the building.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Now am I thrilled with everything the President has done so far?

No I am not.

Keeping Comey is absurd.  Hiring Priebus was as well.

Choosing Paul Ryan over the Freedom Caucus probably won’t work.

Supporting Janet Yellen definitely will not.

Still let us remember who we are.

We are Americans.

We don’t hope.  We don’t wish.

We get things done.

So in celebration of getting things done let us remember why we elected Donald Trump.

“I will build a big beautiful wall and get rid of the bad hombres.”

Get er done Mr. President.

Get er done.

Firing with both fists

Courage is not assertion without fear.

Courage is assertion in spite of fear and comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.

I was reminded of this a few days ago while having a conversation.

The individual I was speaking with was making jokes after receiving yet another round of chemotherapy.  Because this person is incredibly private and humble, and would be embarrassed by my words, I will respect their wishes of privacy and not use their name.

Their life on the other hand is one to share.

You see this is the kind of person who creates safe spaces with his presence.

Children and dogs love him because they instinctively know they are secure and protected.

This is the kind of person who enlisted in the Army at seventeen and became a medic.

Always looking out for others.

He owned businesses, raised a family, loves his children, grandchildren, and of course his wife.  He’d give you the shirt off his back, the money from his pocket, and has done so time and time again.

Of course if he was reading this now he wouldn’t understand what all the fuss was about and would say something like, “This is what we are supposed to do.  I’m supposed to work hard.  I’m supposed to raise my children and nobody else better be loving my wife.  You know what I’m saying?”

Yes my fellow American I am picking up what you are putting down.

He’d tell you that he isn’t special (he is) rather he is lucky.  Lucky to be a citizen of the greatest country ever.  Lucky to have had 69 years (and counting) on this Earth.  He sees his exhaustion, nausea, dizziness, and pain as a good sign that the chemo is working.

Not one complaint, not one bitter word, not a scintilla of why me?

Although he doesn’t eat sugar, and his appetite has almost disappeared, he still makes birthday cakes for loved ones.

The reason I am telling this story is to show the strength of the human spirit.

The strength of one man unwilling to bend.

Unwilling to break.

When he was told he had cancer his first sentence was “Great. When can we start doing what needs to be done.”

In boxing terms he bit down on his mouthpiece and lunged forward firing with both fists.

Cancer has no idea but it doesn’t have a chance.

It picked the wrong guy.

We have our own cancer in America these days.  It’s called liberalism.  It has overtaken the Democratic Party and done a pretty good job infiltrating the Republican Party as well.

Standing in front of America is a 69 year old man whose body is being filled with drugs aimed at killing the cancer.

Dizzy, nauseous, and exhausted he stands at the ready to make sure we do “what needs to be done”.

He’s also a man filled with knowledge.

In other words he voted for Trump.

Shoulder to shoulder America.

It’s time to bite down on the mouthpiece and lunge forward.

Firing with both fists.

Protection or Politics

Neil Gorsuch had a real opportunity.

Senator Orrin Hatch, interestingly enough, walked the Supreme Court Nominee right into Marbury versus Madison.  Gorsuch could have spent a significant amount of time providing knowledge (assuming he had some) or at least both sides of the argument in the 1803 case.

Instead he punted with a weak comment about not wanting to re-litigate the most important case in American Jurisprudence.

Gorsuch later decided to announce that “we are stuck with them” once judges are approved.

Of course this is false and is yet another example of the difference between an “educated” person and one with knowledge.

Finally, he was asked a wide variety of questions, that an ethical person, would answer the same way every time.

He responded to some, parsed others, and then fell back on I cannot comment on specific cases when something came up he didn’t want to answer.

This is called pulling a James Comey.

I wish I could say I am still surprised by Boomer Politicians, Media, etc., but after thousands of stupid comments and actions the only thing that I am surprised by anymore is our willingness to believe them.

I can hear the questions now.

What about Trump, Jason? Do you still support him?

Absolutely.

I’ve stated many times that although I support Donald Trump I do not support the Republican or Democratic Parties.

Trump is the first “non-politician” to be elected President in my lifetime.

Is Trump making mistakes?

Yes, but they are mistakes of assertion and trust, not passivity or ethics.

He currently trusts Reince Priebus, Paul Ryan and apparently James Comey.  These are mistakes, and because of these mistakes, the swamp isn’t being drained.

Neil Gorsuch was chosen by the Republican Establishment, and just like the rest of us, I doubt Donald Trump had ever heard of him until recently.

Some will say Gorsuch is a conservative, a Constitutionalist.

I listened to the man.  He isn’t even close to a Constitutionalist.

Now I am not a conservative.  I am an American but it is my understanding to be a “social conservative” one must definitely be pro-life and probably against gay marriage.

Gorsuch stated under oath both of these issues are settled law and in case some haven’t been paying attention they aren’t “settled” to the satisfaction of social conservatives.

Gorsuch isn’t a conservative.

He is a “compassionate conservative”.

Just like George W. Bush.

In other words a liberal.

Just like John Roberts.

An enabler of corruption, who “interprets” the Constitution, to make it fit whatever case is in front of them, is guaranteed the “right” outcome.

Under John Roberts, forcing Americans to purchase a product or financially penalize them through the Internal Revenue Service, was “constitutional”.

It is well past time to stop using attorneys/judges to fill our courts.  Constitutionally it is not a requirement.

Morally we cannot afford it anymore.

In roughly the same news cycle a young woman who has been called a “right-wing firebrand conservative” was asked a question about abortion.  She shocked many when she said she was for limited government and part of limited government was not having them in her home, her guns, or her body.

Tomi Lahren didn’t duck, parse, or ignore the question.  Furthermore she was consistent with her beliefs.  Limited government means limited government in all fashions on all subjects.

She was ripped by some in the “conservative” crowd and suspended from her job by her boss who among other things is a Never Trumper.

Now, Glenn Beck has every right as an employer to “suspend” Lahren for her comments, and depending upon how her contract is written, every right to fire her if he so desires.  I doubt he will, as Ms. Lahren, has passed Mr. Beck in the ratings department.

The reason I have paired these two items together is to show how one subject, abortion, is allowing the security of our country to weaken daily.

Advocates on both sides have stated many times in public, and even to me personally, that the protection of the unborn or the protection of a woman’s right to choose, is their number one issue.

More important than failing economic and legal systems that are causing the deaths of Americans daily.

More important than human trafficking that allows slavery to continue.

More important than National Security.

Because of this one issue, liberals have just enough “one issue supporters” to allow decades of criminality to not only “creep” in but overwhelm our schools, jails, prisons, hospitals, and social programs through amnesty and amnesty related programs like DACA.

Two potential DACA recipients were just picked up in a “sanctuary city” in Maryland for raping a fourteen year old girl at school.

Sadly it’s time to admit the truth.

We aren’t protecting anyone.

Born or not.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

In fact for America to survive and thrive it can’t be this way anymore.

“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me”.

Shoulder to shoulder.

Let the walk begin.

BernieBots march blindly to their own demise

As many of you know Late Bird was written in 2013, published in 2014, and with that opened the door for me to travel around the country. The premise was simple. We needed an American to be elected as the next President of the United States.

In novel form I wrote a story about my life and envisioned a pathway to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

As time unfolded and my opportunity to fulfill the story of Falcon Sane (at least in 2016) lessened, I turned my attention to one of the two U.S. Senate seats in California. Just like in Late Bird I refused campaign contributions, funded my “run” with my own money and stated if elected I would only serve for one term.

The burgeoning economic disaster known as the Sanctuary State decided to continue down the path of insolvency and lawlessness and elected a human who supports BLM, CAIR, and La Raza while acting as though money grows on trees and should be spent on trains not dams.

True story.

However, before too many California voters decided to cut off their noses to spite their own faces, I received lots of questions.

One phone call came in from a respectful twenty something male who said he’d enjoyed what he had read about me. After about five minutes of a quality back and forth he said he believed me (thanks), found me easy to discuss topics with and was willing to vote for me.

He then told me he was feeling the “Bern” and asked if I supported Bernie.

I told him no. I didn’t support the Colonel.

“You’ve answered all of my questions. You seem to know what you are talking about (again thanks), why don’t you support Bernie. He is the only one who really understands our problems.”

There was more about Bernie not being a career politician, caring about equality, and free health care for all.

Of course none of those things were true, or economically viable with the nutritional and drug habits of too many humans in America these days, but I didn’t bother to walk down that road.

Part of communication is understanding with whom you are speaking.

Clinton admirers, Bill or Hillary, will never care about monogamy, uranium, or the truth. Speaking with them at all is a measurement of stupidity.

George W. Bush apologists will never care about debt, stimulus checks, or the truth. Speaking with them at all is a waste of time for ethical people.

Barack Obama sycophants will never care about America or the Rule of Law. Speaking with them requires monosyllabic verbiage and the constant usage of “um” or “uh”. Furthermore doing so would be moot as they are deaf to reality and mute on the truth.

Of course the BernieBots have some of the same bleating characteristics listed above (America should be more like Sweden) but a large portion of them are just young inexperienced kids who knew they couldn’t support Hillary (well done) but didn’t have any adults in their lives who could walk them through the death spiral of oppression, otherwise known as liberalism.

I knew I couldn’t get into a debate with this person because emotions aren’t debatable. I simply stated Bernie Sanders believes that men, while masturbating, fantasize about physically and sexually abusing women, and that women, while having sex with their spouses or boyfriends, fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three men.

These are the thoughts of a criminally disturbed abuser, easy to find on Google, and someone I could never support.

He was quiet for a second and then said he’d think about what I said. I wished him well and told him to keep my number just in case he had any more questions.

As stated earlier I wasn’t elected and I never heard from the kid again but the Sanders parade of perversion continues.

Under the guise of gender neutrality and bathroom access for all, the Colonel continues to line his pockets at the expense of others. While he espouses Guevara and Castro rhetoric, wrapped in Swedish socialistic fantasies, the Swedes have made some moves of their own.

According to reports the Swedish government is starting to worry about the heavy breathing of Vladimir Putin. The same Putin Obama promised to provide “flexibility” to, and also oversaw the sale of uranium, while drawing a red line in Syria which only reinforced the yellow streak running vertically from his neck to his tailbone.

The same Putin who wants to put the USSR back together again. Yes that would be the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.

The socialistic fantasy of Sweden, that Bernie has been selling the kids and ignorant Boomers, has decided that Putin is becoming too much of a threat for them to ignore anymore. This is striking as they are still ignoring Islam but maybe they prefer Sharia over Sanders.

Nevertheless the “equality” Bernie has promised his followers, that Sweden’s type of government will provide, is coming true.

The Swedes just reinstated their military draft and they are being gender specific.

They want both.

Time to lace up those combat boots BernieBots and join your Swedish socialist brothers and sisters.

Your dream of “equality” just forced a rifle into the hands of your sister and your girlfriend, while Sanders fantasizes about them all, as one “socialist State” prepares to fight another.

Don’t worry about the “Democratic Socialists” here in America though.

When it’s all said and done, Sharia will still be around, to welcome all you Infidels home.

The Ninth Circuit is making sure of that.
