There are different kinds of conservatives. The mixture is messy and it is difficult to understand how they can see themselves under the same banner.

There are the social conservatives. It matters not whether they are right or not. They are essentially rabid. Though they are in the minority, they are convinced of their right to impose their beliefs on everyone else.

There are the neo-cons. These are the ones that have never seen a war they didn’t love. Their only goal is to find an excuse for a war.

However, today we focus on the economic conservatives. The social conservatives have no need to think, as they hold THE TRUTH. The neo-cons fantasize themselves as John Wayne. You might hold some hope for the economic conservatives, as they profess to honor things that are measurable. If only that were so.  [click to continue…]

Accepting America

October 18, 2016

in Politics,Religion


America is in jeopardy. I survived the 8 years of a total incompetent W and his personal Rasputin. I considered becoming an expatriate but, though I had traveled the world for nearly 20 years, America is my home.

Things have changed. We again have a total incompetent running for the presidency but this one is a sociopath – a dangerous one. A whiny, spoiled brat thinks he is right and everyone else is wrong. If he loses, it’s not his fault. It’s someone else’s.

With a complete lack of understanding and appreciation of America, its values, its traditions and its people, he blithely imperils the very foundations of the world’s oldest continuously sitting democratic government.

Democracy relies on trust. A study found 31 possible incidences of voter ID fraud across the entire country over more than a decade. That should inspire and justify ones trust in our system. There is no need to be concerned about voters – Republican governors, attorneys general and Supreme Courts, but not the voters. There is certainly reason to be worried about a sizable percentage of the rabble he rouses.  [click to continue…]

debt-ss-medicareConservatives distort the English language. One of the more prominent examples is the word entitlement. According to the dictionary, an entitlement is something due to one by law or contract. In the case of Social Security and Medicare, they are benefits that are paid for by the FICA tax of 15.2%.

Conservatives confuse the word ‘entitlement’ with the words ‘sense of entitlement.’ They also try to conflate debt and the Social Security funding. Social Security and Medicare are funded by the FICA tax, not by income taxes. They are not items on the budget.

The sole effect of Social Security on the debt is that some of the surplus of the Social Security funds are stolen to cover much of the debt. China owns about 10% of our debt. Saudi Arabia somewhat less. Many others own a share but by far the largest chunk is owed to Social Security. [click to continue…]

You Knew

ryan_trump_mcconnellWhy should I write on this topic when Jeffrey Young of Huffington Post has crafted such a masterful piece already?

The Republican establishment has knowingly promoted a monster to the public as worthy of the most powerful position on Earth. With the latest revelations of his perversity, immaturity and sociopathy many Republican politicians are feigning surprise.

Hold their feet to the fire. Rid ourselves of the scum that have endorsed him for their own potential benefit. [click to continue…]

Mike is not as funny as Jim Carrey but Jim just cannot match him in insincerity. Mike spent most of the vice presidential debate denying that he and Donald ever said the nonsense that has been captured on video. [click to continue…]

Enough Already

September 29, 2016

bush-trumpRemember, it would be difficult to find many people that detest both Hillary and Donald more than do I. In addition to my disdain, I am desperately concerned for the future of this country, indeed the entire planet, should the maniac get control of the Supreme Court, the economy, education, the military and access to the button.

So, I feel compelled to address what Donald considers one of his strongest criticisms of Hillary. Nothing is more sacrosanct to him than the privacy of his tax returns. He is willing to take serious hits to maintain the secrets contained therein. However, he claims to be willing to make the sacrifice, if only she will make public 33,000 deleted emails; not that anyone should believe him. I’m wondering how does one produce deleted emails?

Ted Nugent – Vladimir Putin – The KKK


Donald Trump Enjoys Broad Support


The choices are simple. Either Trump loses or this nation loses. I don’t mean loses a la George W. Bush, whose tax cuts for the elite put us $5.8 trillion further in debt or the 2 unnecessary wars that cost us the lives of over 4,000 of our military and more than 100,000 other human beings . . . and put us even further in debt. I mean we will have lost the ideas upon which this country was founded. We will have lost the soul of the United States of America.

I give you an article by Drew Magary of GQ Magazine that expresses what I feel about the supporters of Donald Trump. [click to continue…]

Totally Lacking Judgment

September 16, 2016

in Politics

judgmental-trumpHow obvious can Donald Trump’s lack of judgment can be? Total.

For years he has famously led the tin hats of the conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya. His reluctance to admit that his claims were a fraud were understandable. It has been the ‘red meat’ that was the appeal to the racists that form his base.

Being forced by the Republican establishment to cease embarrassing them finally reached the tipping point. It will not cost him his base. They emulate Trump himself in their inability to admit being wrong. [click to continue…]
