STUPID MILITARY IDEA # 6.
I'm going to write more about this, soon, but, for the record, I want to register my protest.
What President Obama is creating by sending 3,000 American troops to West Africa is the possibility
of 3,000 Ebola carriers. Armies kill people and break things. Armies do not play doctor or policemen
to bad medical policy.
Health officials are not telling the whole story abut Ebola, its consequences and its
abilities in spreading itself.
We have no idea what Ebola is actually capable of, especially, now that a form of
it has become airborne, and current research cannot verify that after "healing," patients may still
be carriers. And in any case, does ANYONE actually believe this President when he says ANYTHING?
NOT LIKE IRAQ.. OR NOT.. OR..
As Obama sits at his desk as Lyndon Johnson did, picking bombing sites like a six year old with his toy plastic soldiers, his people went on television saying "Yes, it IS a war with ISIL (ISIS, IS), but it's not going to be like Iraq."
JFK tries to get LBJ's attention while Johnson is flipping off someone at the 1960 Democrat Convention.
One has to laugh to keep from crying. The war with ISIS will not be like Iraq? Really? You mean we win, and have a feckless president snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Or, we'll lose from the outset? Sweet Jesus! How worthless are these chickenfurters?!
I can't help thinking of the late South Carolina native, Bill Westmoreland, General of the Army, whom I got to know fairly well in the mid '80s. We often spoke abut the fighting in Vietnam, being hamstrung by two worthless Presidents, and then being blamed for the failures CAUSED by both socialists. Still, he almost won the Vietnam war, and might have, had it not been for the misguided foreign policy of Johnson and Nixon, and the monolithic fabrications of Dan Rather and his fellow travelers at ABC and NBC.
NOV. 5th IS YOUR CHANCE
In a month and a half, you're going to have a choice: Sit on your butt,
and let somebody else decide that you should continue suffering under the most destructive law since
slavery, or vote for someone who will end Obamacare.
There is NO, repeat NO Democrat who will free us from this wickedness.
Democrats think evil is good and that vice is versa. South Carolina Democrats still
can't figure out why our citizens don't want to be socialists, much less fascists. Fortunately, for the
Democrat Senate candidate, I don't even know its name. (I say, "its" because Democrats don't
distinguish between genders.)
Think about it - The Obama administration allows "rescue" signs to be put up on our SOUTHERN border
in English, Spanish, and CHINESE! Now, why would they do that?...... Whyever, indeed.
Now, Lindsey Graham has been in Congress, House and Senate, so long that he
has peeved everyone in the state, at least once. But no-one - NO. ONE. - can say he does not
have our military in mind and its importance to America's defense, and recent events have again proven
that America's defense is the most important issue. Always.
Independent Thomas Ravenel was thrown to the dogs by Elite State Republicans
and envious Democrats after he shared cocaine with his friends. They could not find anybody in the state to
do their dirty work, but Obama's dirty workers were just giddy with the knowledge that they could
hang one on a powerful Republican. So, fine, they chased a good man out of the State GOP. And
T-Rav, as he is known by his younger supporters, IS a good man.
And that's the problem.
Were we in a pre-9/11 world, we could follow Thomas into isolation. As you
all know, I wanted simply to carpet-bomb the Afghanistan mountains with Bunkerbusters and
Daisycutters, and/or send in a Clancy-type Delta Group, kidnap and execute everybody
involved. But we're not. We ARE where we are, and we can't trust our legacy of victory in
the middle east to Democrats who are desperately trying to turn the Arabia and the Lavant
into another Vietnam. With a Republican Congress, Obama's political cowardice can be
counterbalanced by, at least, 80% .
If recent events have not convinced us, sheer logic should convince us that
we cannot afford to be isolationists. If Ravenel says that he would
support a strong military presence in the Middle East, he would have a better chance of winning,
But he won't. He doesn't believe in it. And now that Graham has been effectively shriven
from his amnesty position, a great many people who were uncomfortable with him, are now getting
Still, as long as we vote for either Thomas or Lindsey, a runoff would decide, and
we would get a conservative, either way. But more importantly, we must vote.
Vote for your future, if you want to have one.
THE WOOLY BULLY IS REALLY JUST A CHICKENFURTER
Do I really have to tell you what I think about the President's egg-sucking speech? OK,
it was an egg-sucking speech. Looked great on TV, but on radio, its stupidity and shallowness shone forth.
But anyone who was not there just to get a thrill up his (or her) leg, got irrefutable
evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is a bully.
I wrote, before, about how Obama was being perceived as a bully. Since then, I have
been very careful to read and investigate both sides in order to see if the growing perception had any basis
in truth. Wednesday night, we got the evidence that we were waiting for. Oh, not the phony almost-tear
in the eye nor the fully Clintonian catch in the throat. No, as Yogi Berra might say, "He got caught with his
argument's pants down."
By delivering a speech, Obama has definitively shown that he has only words with which to try
to bully our enemies. If you've read any of the scientific articles on boy bullies and bullying, you know that deep, beneath
the threatening faces and actions, lies the soul of a scared little boy who has been found out. Nobody, especially
not our dedicated enemies believes that Obama will deliver on any of his threats. All real war authorities
agree that you cannot win with just air power. Now, full battle tank battalions with infantry cleanup - THAT's
another thing. Those and air power can win pretty much anything.
A true bully is like the R&B/R&R song - "Wooly-Bully" - all promise, the same beat with no
change, and disappointing delivery.
We know the behaviors of a bully. Match them with those erratic foreign policy behaviors of
Obama. There is no doubt that Obama is a bully. Now he is revealing himself as a coward: He threatens and lets
other people do his fighting. What in God's name are we supposed to do when ISIS has had enough of our BS
foreign policy? Hell, the President won't even call it a war!
When a bully is shown up, the coward in him runs away or betrays the people who have been
fighting for him. The problem is that the world is no playground, and the playground bully cannot run away.
But what do you expect from a bully who has been exposed as a coward‽ Go into your closet,
close the door, and reason with the Lord of all Creation to remove whatever barrier which keeps the faith-keepers
ardent and faithful to the constitution.
"..THE GATES OF HELL, IF NEED BE..."
Not much to say, except that I'd realy like to sue the President for wasting my
time, this weekend and Wednesday night. However, I WOULD like to thank VP Biden for saying the funniest and truest thing I've
heard him say for months.
As he was speaking to a crowd the other day, he said that he and the President would
chase the terrorists to the Gates of Hell. I figured that would be fairly easy, seeing that those
"Gates" are the back doors of the White House.
Thank you Joe!
ONE MORE TIME, WITH FEELING
Let's pretend that someone has followed every idea that we've talked about,
when it comes to the economy, since 2004, when we first started this amazing experiment in "citizen
journalism" (well, that's what some people call it.) And let's pretend that this same person
has an amazing ability to stay focused, so that he avoids the distractions which every other American,
including the so-called economic geniuses, have fallen err to.
Assuming that there WAS such a person, he could draw a straight line
from the 2007 stupidity of Democrat Congress and Federal Reserve (the Fed), to the even more recent stupidity
of the Administration's increase in economic follies.
- † In the beginning: Democrats, who thought they were God, created the Federal reserve.
- • The FED borrows money from American Citizens, without their permission.
- • Americans must pay back the money through their taxes.
- • Currently, Americans owe more than 17 Trillion dollars to even up the FED's books.
- • The Fed gives this made-up money to THE BANKS who cover shorts THE BANKS
created by making bad loans.
- • The FED has not regulated THE BANKS to make sure they are making loans, since
the beginning of the Obama administration
- • THE BANKS, instead, buy stocks in the open market to make it seem as if the
economy is roaring. They do this with the full knowledge of the Obama administration.
- † Democrats, who thought they were economic geniuses, encouraged banks to take over 4 Trillion dollars in bad loans in 2007.
- • Bush could not get the Democrat Congress to do an audit of the FED who was supplying
- • The banks failed in 2008.
- • They're doing it again.
- † The Obama Administration changes the "economic success ratio" of America from the
Gross National Product to the Gross Domestic
- • The stock market is a large part of the GDP and not such a large part of the GNP
- • There are now 6 different levels of success ratios which creates great confusion.
Here's our old friend, Washington, going crazy over the economy. Again.
- † The Obama Administration changes the reported employment figures
- • This allows the Obama Administration to change the reporting the number of people
actually working with the ratio of full-time workers.
- • There are now 6 different levels of employment which creates great confusion.
- • A cursory look makes the economy look better than it really is.
- • This also hides the number of people on various welfare programs (non-Social
Security, non-Medicare), which, of course, are paid for by the taxpayers.
- † Increased Minimum Wage will increase all Union workers' pay, not just fast food
- • Takes money out of the economy by ending some jobs.
- • Increases prices - more inflation pressure.
- † The Obama Administration and a Democrat Congress pass the onerous, worthless,
and unfortunately named Affordable Care Act - Obamacare.
- • The average American now has to take money out of the economy to pay for
ridiculously expensive health insurance.
- † The Obama Administration cajoles the FED into the breathtaking procedure of
Quantitative Easing - just printing valueless money with practically no interest.
- • The price of Oil is completely linked to the price of Gasoline, both of which soar.
- • Futures on most commodities increase 20% average per year for 5 years.
- • Gold and silver surge 40% before banks are encouraged to sell their precious metals -
the price sinks to artificially low levels by 2014.
- † Requests to audit the FED are called "foolish."
- † Requests to see the gold in Fort Knox is universally refused.
- † Harry Reid refuses to pass any of 140 pieces of legislation passed by the House.
- † The volume on the stock market dwindles to historically low ratios.
- • All but a few stock purchases are by THE BANKS.
- • Small investors continue to stay away as the markets fluctuate radically,
driven by THE BANKS' computers.
- † Business taxes remain the highest among 1st world countries
∴ Increased taxes, the loss of jobs, people on fixed incomes becoming
poorer, and unrecognized inflation, added to increased regulation from the EPA, onerously expensive
health insurance, the increase of illegal aliens swelling the welfare rolls, the hostility of the Obama
Administration to any truth which paints it in a bad light (which is a lot) have caused money to
disappear from the American Economy in amounts not even equalled by the Great Depression and
a country-wide feeling of mistrust and hopelessness.
These errors in judgment are not the fault of ANY Republican, and
the economy is not going to hell, it IS in hell.
IS PRESIDENT OBAMA A COWARD?
Merriam Webster defines a coward as "..one who shows disgraceful fear or timidity; someone who
is too afraid to do what is right or expected — 'coward' adjective "
Is President Obama a coward? or does he just ACT like a coward?
Considering the cutting results of his foreign policy, what difference does it really make?
READY, SET, GO!
I love a parade! Don't you? Apparently, so does
almost every one running for a statewide public office. And the Annual Labor Day Parade
in Chapin has been the place to be, if it's an election year. Try to guess why Graham and
Haley didn't show up. My guess is that no incumbent likes to get booed.
Tom Ervin, Conservative Republican Independent candidate for Governor, whose popularity is growing,
hit the streets with the help of students from Spring Hill High.

ALL THE NEWS ON THE WEATHER REPORT
(August 31, 2014) When historians look back on the first part of the 21st Century,
assuming that we make it that far without turning into a Dictatorship, they will be astounded that average
Americans turned away from from expectations of entitlements to become responsible for themselves
and their posterity. They will also be astounded that they were able to see through the absolute
culpability of their trusted media to see them as the government propaganda machines they are, today.
There's a simple example. No, it's not the situation in Missouri, nor Thursday's
Presidential freakout over the lack of foreign policy planning that was soft-pedaled, nor the complete
obfuscation of the rigged economy which, frankly the MSM does't understand. No, it's the complete
misjudgment of the climate and the misunderstanding of cyclical weather patterns.
Did you know you can get the real skinny on climate and the weather at Weatherbell.com?
Well, you can. It's even free every Saturday, although you can stay much better informed for less than
$20 a month. And if your business depends on good prognostication, you can even get a much better
jump on your competition by getting their professional service. See the middle column toward the top.
Check out Joe Bastardi's Saturday Summary for this week. He's got the true lowdown
on a much misunderstood phenomenon. Yes, in the larger scheme of things, it's just the truth about a small
matter to us South Carolinians, but if nothing else, it will show you that there are people who are truthin'
when others are leading you down the garden path.
THE BIGGEST LITTLE LIE, SO FAR..
(August 30, 2014) This economy that we now have is absolutely and completely
Obama's fault.. The greatest lie that Democrats have persuaded the media to tell for them - a lie
even bigger than the lie that they and the great American Liar told about keeping your doctor, in
his vile and corrupt health care law, is that the economy, as we now have it, is George W. Bush's fault.
This is the kind of lazy thinking that got us where we are today, economically: our
dollar has no value, our influence in the world is visibly shrinking every day, and our people have
40% less to spend than they did when the Democrats took over the House and Senate in 2007, while
Bush was STILL President. The media will not tell you or remind you of the fact that it was Sen.
Dick Durbin and Rep. Barney Frank and their murderously stupid bank bill that caused the great bank
failure that EVERYBODY thinks was caused by Bush. Now, he could have vetoed it, but elite
RINOs told him that would be baaaaad - so he didn't.
Sen. Dick Durbin & Rep. Barney Frank.. the real economy killers. Remember?
The only thing that Bush the Younger did which was wrong was believe in Keynesian
economics. But by any standard, the bank bail-out was only one trillion dollars more. Obama has added
many mulitples of that with his continuation of the valueless dollar fantasy, and an economic devaluation
which supersedes every other stupid economic plan Democrats have tried.
If you know your modern history, you know these facts are true. America suffers,
not because of W's inaction, but because of Obama and the Democrats' sinful waste of America's
blood and treasure.
ONE LONG STRING OF COVER-UPS AND LAW-BREAKING
(August 28, 2014) The reason I haven't written anything this past week is because all
I would write is one "I told you so" after another. .
- Pro-Democrat spokespeople are out like girlscouts, selling their administration's lies like cookies,
especially when it comes to Lois Lerner.
- We STILL don't have the truth about Benghazi.
- The Michael Brown case was taken over by the once noble, now poverty-pimps and race-baiters, and now,
they have shown they ARE in it for the bucks. We STILL don't know what happened. Eric Holder
has already made a racist comment about the shooting.
Hopeless. Changeless. Serial liar. Intellectual coward. Take your pick..
- President Obama does not have a clue what to do about foreign rejection of the American Dollar.
- The President also doesn't know what to do about ISIS (ISIL, IS, whatever)
- The President doesn't know what to do about his pitiful and awful unaffordable healthcare law
- The President sits by while Russia CONTINUES its stealth invasion of Ukraine.
- The Marine continues to sit in a stinking Mexican jail
- His plan to let in illegals has caused outbreaks of diseases which have not been reported by the network
- Global Warming is bad science, so the President has decided to sneak American obedience to a bad treaty
by calling it something else.
On EACH of these points, other commentators and I have been harping for years, and you
would think SOMEBODY would notice, and be, at least, a little humble about these occurrences, of not feeling
guilty about them. Au contraire, mon frère..
And that's all I've got to say, today, except that we are being screwed, and our representatives continue
to be stymied by Harry Reid's Senate, while the super-righteous prigs from beyond the fringe (not TEA partiers)
continue talking down strong conservatives and putting up joke candidates. We need to pack the congress - both houses -
with people who are NOT Democrats, because, if they win the Senate, again, you can kiss your country goodbye.
An I DID tell you these things would happen - in some cases, years ago.
30 FACTS THAT PROVE OBAMA HAS HURT, NOT HELPED,
OUR WRETCHED ECONOMY
(August 22, 2014) Here is the list compiled and linked by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog.com
by way of Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge (linked above):
1. In 2007, the average household in the top 5 percent had
16.5 times as much wealth as the average household overall. But now the
average household in the top 5 percent has 24 times as much wealth as
the average household overall.
2. According to a study recently discussed in the New York
Times, the "typical American household" is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a

Americans rely on food banks at this point.
4. One out of
every four military families needs help putting enough food on the table.
5. 79 percent of the people that use food
banks purchase "inexpensive, unhealthy food just to have enough to feed their
6. One out of every three adults in the United States
has an unpaid debt that is "in collections".
7. Only 48 percent of all Americans can
immediately come up with $400 in emergency cash without borrowing it or selling

paychecks of most middle class families. For example, the average price
of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $3.884 a pound.
9. According to one recent study, 40 percent of all households in the United States
are experiencing financial stress right now.
10. The overall homeownership rate has fallen to the lowest
level since 1995.

35 is at an all-time low.
12. According to one recent survey, 52 percent of all Americans cannot even
afford the house that they are living in right now.
13. The average age of vehicles on America’s roads
has hit an all-time high of 11.4 years.
14. Last year, one out of every four auto loans in the United States
was made to someone with subprime credit.
15. Amazingly, one out of every six men in
their prime working years (25 to 54) do not have a job
at this point.
16. One recent study found that 47 percent of unemployed
Americans have “completely given up” looking
for a job.
17. 36 percent of Americans do not have a
single penny saved for retirement.
18. According to one survey, 76 percent of all Americans are living
paycheck to paycheck.
19. More than half of all working Americans make less than $30,000 a year in
20. Only four of the twenty fastest growing
occupations in America require a Bachelor’s degree or better.
21. In America today, one out of every ten
jobs is filled by a temp agency.
22. Due to a lack of decent jobs, half of all college
graduates are still relying on their parents financially when they are two
years out of school.
23. Median household income in the United States
is about 7 percent lower than it
was in the year 2000 after adjusting for inflation.
24. Approximately one out of every four
part-time workers in America is living below the poverty line.
25. It is hard to believe, but more than one
out of every five children in the United States is living in poverty
26. According to one study, there are 49 million
Americans that are dealing with food insecurity.
27. Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of
women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women
in the U.S.
on food stamps actually exceeds the number of
women that have jobs.
28. If the middle class was actually thriving, we wouldn’t
have more than a
million public school children that are homeless.
29. If you can believe it, Americans received more than 2 trillion
dollars in benefits from the federal government last year alone.
30. In terms of median wealth per adult, the United States
is now in just 19th place in the world.
What is the most sad thing about all of this, is that these instances are only a
part of the things which have been caused or ignored by what is becoming obviously an incompetent
THE WORLD MAY BE 'SPLODIN', BUT IT'S
LIBERAL OF THE WEEK TIME!
(August 21, 2014) All puppies and most cats - regardless of age -
are liberals. They expect to be taken care of from cradle to grave.
What with Ferguson, MO, and all, we thought we'd offer view of
the world from a Progressive point of view. Everybody's dependent on the government
from basket to happy fields.
"We're not scary now, but wait until we're 18.. in dog years.."
WE OWE $89,500,000,000,000.00.
WE OWN $82,000,000,000,000.00.
WHAT DO WE CALL THAT?
(July 19, 2014) Please read this editorial by Chris Hamilton from CharlesBiderman.com.
I cannot say it any better.
MAKING DEMOCRATS PUT UP OR SHUT UP
(August 18, 2014) Here's the deal: The longer the President refuses
to perform his constitutional duty, the more illegal children are being funnelled into our state's
schools. This is outright theft on the part of the Federal government.
Simply put, children, whose parents have either abandoned them
to send them to America or abandoned them to steal into America and join them, are
forcing an intolerable cost on the several states being infested by these law-breakers'
Regular Republicans are furious with their representatives whom
the Democrats have been punking for some time, now, making them think they won't get
legal Chicano and other Latino votes, if they don't DO SOMETHING. Even in the
clear light of several polls which show that legal Latinos WANT the laws to be enforced.
The Church seems to be equally compliant in this fraud, quoting
one commandment and ignoring another - They quote "Thou shalt not kill" (it's actually
"do no murder," which nobody's doing, anyway, except the cartels) but completely
forget "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not bear false witness," and most especially
"Thou shalt not covet," which is what EVERY illegal does when they cross the border.
This is the perfect opportunity to make Democrats put up or shut up.
So, if the National Republicans don't have the cojones to
cut off the administration's money until they do the right thing, the state legislators
can. Here's how: increase the state income Tax ONLY on Democrats. Since State taxes
CAN (and often are) used to discriminate between various groups, this should work. If
the SCOTUS rules against it, they would also have to rule against a graduated income tax.
There will be a precious few Republicans who will suffer, too, but that
might just be enough to force those lazy talkers into getting actively involved as doers, as
they should have been, anyway..
Raise state income taxes on all tenure-track college professors, lawyers,
presidents of multi-national corporations, union members, NAACP members, Episcopalians,
Roman Catholic clergy, and all the parents of 99%'ers. DO IT, and don't look back. Make
sure you tell these unfortunates that it's being done "for the children" - especially to pay
for the increased public education costs to the state. If these jackwagons care so much
for these junior miscreants, they can pay for their education, food, shelter, clothing, Obamaphones,
Obamacars, and Obamacare.
One has to wonder how popular these children will be, when the real
thieves have to pay for them, themselves.
Illegal immigration has a very dark side when it comes to the lack of
support, both popular and financial. These important state tax changes would brighten things
up, considerably. Of course, it's only a fantasy, because our President is a tyrant and our
representatives are all politically afraid of their own shadows..
... and one more thing.. America is not even close to being as "rich" as most Democrats declare.
We really DON'T have the income to support our current government, much less any new
outlay of funds. Taxing Democrats is as fair as a President who isn't doing the job as
described by the rules we call the Constitution.
THIS IS WHY SC GOVERNORS CAN SUSPEND PUBLIC STATE OFFICIALS
(August 17, 2014) In Texas, a prosecutor (mind you) was caught flat-footed,
falling down, slobbering drunk while driving. I even hate wasting the electricity to tell you
her name, which she has sullied - Rosemary Lehmberg. She is beyond despicable, and frankly, your typical national
Democrat. In Texas, a governor can suspend a prosecutor. Even so, this nauseating, slimy vermin,
who could have easily killed someone when she was driving in her provocative, illegal, and immoral
condition, refused to resign.
The governor of Texas tried to get her to resign by applying political
pressure no more unethical than what Obama is doing with funding distribution coercion.
She's a Democrat prosecutor. She has powerful Democrat friends. Democrats are losing power
everywhere. She used a Democrat commission to command a grand jury. He's now been
Why can't we prosecute President Obama, the most immoral of all the
Democrats? He has done nothing but coerce people from rightful, ethical, and constitutional action.
Good Lord! Do the Democrats know how to anything but coerce and threaten and steal and lie?
Democrat prosecutor Rosemary Lehmberg in Jail. She could have easily killed someone
while driving in her provocative and immoral condition, yet refused to resign when designated
to do so. Democrats above the law. She was a "corruption prosecutor" at the time.
In South Carolina, our governor can and does replace unethical people, sometimes
with the help of our Supreme Court Chief - even those who are elected. Also, even though
our prosecutors are elected, they can be suspended. Our judges are appointed by the
legislature, which has always been preferable to the coercive judiciary pressures of election.
The system is not perfect, but it works many more times than not.
Rick Perry is being punked, probably with the help of the Other Texas
Republican power group, but I do not know this for a fact. On the other hand, how hard
would it be to simply agree not to say anything to support Perry, or worse, damn him with faint
praise? Now who could possibly benefit from this Democrat-instigated side-show? Who,
I wasn't going to support Perry, possibly in favor of the son of my friend.
My opinion has made a right turn (if you're facing due south).
60,000,000 AMERICANS - BLIND AND DEAF
(August 16, 2014) In a commercial which hopes you will write your local politicians,
asking them to defeat a recent challenge by satellite and cable providers to charge local TV stations
to be carried on their services. Personally, I think it's suicide for local TV stations to gripe about
the pittance they'd have to pay - they are about to become dinosaurs and go the way of AM radio,
if they're not very careful.
But what is so depressing is a fact used in the spot. We checked and it's true. Sixty
million Americans, give or take an inch, do not have access to cable. That means they get ALL of their
news from either NBC, CBS, ABC or ETV. Do you see the call letters of ANY even-handed news service in
that group? No, you don't. So the only conclusion one can come to is that 60M people have been
getting Democrat propaganda since, at least, 1983, in the clothing of their nightly newscasts.
60,000,000 Americans get their news from the mainstream TV networks, making
their understanding of national and world events solely dependent on Democrat
Also, it means that anyone with a differing view of current events is
not being properly covered. Is it any wonder that so many Americans think our President
is doing "the best he can"?
You can see exactly what a challenge getting a Conservatarian* philosophy
out to those in cable/sat-deprived neighborhoods would be, let alone a purely Conservative,
Libertarian, or even a Moderate political view. In the end, people without cable/sat are
getting little more than propaganda in place of genuine news. We have discussed, previously,
why Liberals and Progressives must lie in order to stay in power.
Now what, you may ask, about FOX network local stations? The answer is that there
is a phenomenon among local FOX newsrooms which goes something like this: Most people think
that FOX is run by a bunch of bigots, so we have to be extra liberal in our news delivery in
order to be accepted. "And that, said John, is that."
Until everyone gets cable/sat access, or a network broadcasting miracle is wrought,
there is a huge challenge ahead for any person to get the truth out. 60,000,000 Americans
might as well be blind as well as deaf.
is a person holding libertarian beliefs with the exception of the need for enough governmental control
necessary to maintain an invincible standing army and necessary infrastructure.
WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR
(August 14, 2014) I was so hoping that Our President had acknowledged
the common sense of saving the Yazidis, even if he doesn't have any moral sense of its
rightness. Sadly, I was again disappointed.
We're now hearing that there is "NO WAY" to save all the Yazidis,
and probably not the Christians caught in the crossfire between the Kurds and ISIS (ISIL,
IS - whatever). We hear this after everybody, including your truly, had warned that
boots have to be on the ground, in order to protect those refugees. We're also hearing
that the Kurds may NOT be getting the wherewithall needed to push ISIS back into
Syria. People in DC are even talking about giving Shia fighters big weapons to even
Many moons ago, I wrote an editorial, reminding people that Shia Islam
is a ferocious and dangerous denomination of that religion. Not that Suni Islam can't be
ferocious and dangerous, but Shia Islam contains the popular dogma that it's OK to
lie to someone who is not a Shia Muslim. It's called "Taqiyya," and it puts all Shia fighters
and supporters in a very unhealthy light. And Kerry and Obama are seriously considering
giving these religious liars very big arms and munitions
But saying I told you so doesn't solve anything. We KNOW the
current administration is completely FUBAR. What should be done, now, is for Obama to
give that grin he does and say he has "evolved." He can say that he now understands the
importance of having boots on the ground, and that we are now going to proceed to win
Iraq back for the Iraqis and Kurds. And then, when we are where we were after the surge,
leave 30-50,000 troops like Bush had planned.
When you wish upon a star, make sure it's a real star and not just a meteor getting ready
to ruin your hopes.
THE FUNNY LIGHT GOT SWITCHED OFF
(August 12, 2014) Mrs. Doubtfire, Adrian Cronauer, Mork, Dr. Sean Maguire,
Popeye, Dr. Oliver Sacks, Parry, Patch Adams, Peter Pan, Armand, Jack, the brilliant actor and only improv
performer as good and as funny as Jonathan Winters, and more.. all dead.
I never met Robin Williams, but I did understand him - the same way
you know and understand anybody who is famous and strikes that certain chord in your soul. Emmys and Oscars
knew him well, too. He could make dead men laugh.
The light is gone. Robin Williams is suddenly dead. That he did it to himself is irrelevant.
There is going to be a rush of people who are not only not famous, but
incapable of understanding, who put it all down to drugs and alcohol, and maybe they're right.
But what I'd want to do, instead of sharing his depression, which happens to ALL great comedians
since Aristophanes, is share his genius.
If you want to put him down, resist the temptation. Instead, go on Amazon Prime,
or one of the other streaming movie services, or dig out an old DVD, and watch one of his movies. And laugh. Laugh
out loud. Laugh for the funny and the sadness of the day.
Robin Williams may have killed himself, but I'd like to think that
his heart just gave out. It would be the ending I'd wish for him, since he gave so much to
so many, like Shel Silverstein's Giving Tree.
Or maybe we can all remember that the funny light just got switched off - as simple
as that - but it will be back. Just don't expect it to be any time soon.
REMEMBER, REMEMBER, THE 5TH OF NOVEMBER
(August 11, 2014) I'm sure, by now that you've seen the movie,
V. If you haven't, it's about a guy who uses the 5th of November as a living metaphor
and blows up stuff before and after he brings a futuristic English dictator to his
knees. The idea being that the chaos he causes will create a just future for Jolly
Olde. They show the well-acted movie frequently on the BBC, and did so last night.
I had a scary thought: the 5th of November is the day after this
year's general election. And since everything in America is going backwards toward
a mediaeval monarchy, wouldn't it be awful to find we have been tricked into voting
to become serfs to Senatorial dukes who swore allegiance to the suzeraineté of HRM
Was Guy Fawkes a terrorist or a libertarian? His methods were undeniably wrong and
terroristic, but his principles were undeniably freedom and self-reliance - everything a
fascist statist hates.
Up until these last few months with the complete screwup of the current
administration, I would have dismissed this idea as completely crazy. Maybe it still is.. I really
hope it is.. But government controls so much and the people in government have sold their
souls to stay employed so much, that it's becoming truly hard to tell the servants of the people from
those who want people to be servants.
Why else would a man pretend to care about the people one year out of six?
Why else would anyone betray their ideals, even in the face of abject illogic. Do you realize that,
on a statewide level, of all the people running for election, there are only two people you can trust, absolutely?
Your Congressman and Tim Scott. Even Jim Clyburn can be trusted - trusted to rake off federal funds to
redistribute to his constituents, but trusted nonetheless.
This may be a bit harsh, but if you can prove that the other statewide incumbents can
be trusted, absolutely, I'll change my mind.
We're about to be punked. So, remember what might happen on the
Fifth of November. Not what we will do to government, but what government might do to us.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
(August 9, 2014) Can our President do ANYTHING right? His foreign
policy of running away from the Middle East is being shown to be stupid this very hour. ISIS
has captured the very Yazidis we were trying to rescue on that mountain in Iraq. Did he
REALLY think the rebels would take him seriously when he said there would be 'NO boots
on the ground'?
We dropped our bombs, and it may save a few Kurds for now, but
by leaving precipitously so that he could look like a peacemaker at election time, Obama
has shown just how important boots on the ground are, and why he should have left
30,000 troops there as Bush had planned it. Knocking out a couple of convoys does not
a victory make.
This is what it looks like when a convoy is bombed. The picture was taken at a US military
training exercise. Because there are no boots on the ground to mop up and gain intel in Iraq, this
is a practice in futility. Hitler bombed London to bits and it had no effect, in the end.
Sen. Graham, on a Fox interview airing Sunday, is expected to repeat
what he has already said; that we
made a huge mistake by leaving, and that we need to get those boots back on the ground,
at least to save the Kurds, whom GW Bush left hanging after Iraq War I.
We OWE the Kurds. We promised them that we would help and
protect them. So far we have wronged them, and have been doing so for 25 years. Our
Boys and Girls have DIED to make it so, and we have walked away each time. We are
doing so now.
OK, sure, Obama hates the United States where Capitalism creates
creativity and white people really had a lot to do with making it so, along with people
of ALL colors and faiths. But what our President believes and what is true is a gulf so
wide that angels weep at the gap.
Boots on the ground? We should never have been there. But since we
did go there and our soldiers died for it, we should have never left. Obama's actions show
only cowardice. There is no "nice" way to bludgeon one's way to victory.
THREE MOVIES EXPLAIN IT ALL..
(August 7, 2014) I'm a little unhappy with the "Reason.com Crowd." I still
haven't decided whether they THINK they're Libertarians, or I've misread what a Libertarian is.
Maybe they're not Libertarian at all, rather, they're just intellectual cowards. Anyway, from the
way they were making fun of the real concern over the possibility of the spread of Ebola in America,
I've lost respect for the misnamed "Reason" Magazine, their website, and their butt-monkey, "The
Independents" (a talk show on the Fox Business Channel.)
Ebola in America is a real possibility. A wide-open border is a real weakness to
America's security. We have been receiving West African emigrants for some time - not in mass numbers
but in tens and twelves. They are not being given comprehensive health exams. They and their
companions are not being quarantined an adequate amount of time. My answer to this dumb
Presidential policy is a list of three movies
In each of the three movies, there is a driving theme of improbabilities that happen, nonetheless. In Andromeda
Strain, a space defense program goes awry when the probe brings back an alien virus, which kills
off most of an entire town. In Outbreak, a Military weaponized virus experiment in Africa goes awry,
hops the Atlantic, and kills off half a town. In Contagion, a mutated virus strain goes awry and
kills off half the world.
What each of these movies have in common, other than their excellent scientific dramaturgy,
is what should be called "the Crichton factor," after futurist and chaos theory proponent, the late Michael
Crichton, who wrote Andromeda Strain. (He's also the guy who gave a funny, famous speech at CalTec,
"Aliens Cause Global Warming," making fun of the dreadful unscientific methods of so-called "climate scientists.")
Crichton's major thesis, even in his first book, The Great Train Robbery, warns
that there is no such thing as certainty when it comes to actions which are caused by complex systems. Systems
such as climate, weather, human behavior, ontology, and of course, viruses simply cannot be organized enough to
guarantee certainty of outcome. Let me repeat. There can be NO certainty of outcome in systems with a
large number of variables.
That includes not only viruses, but also their treatment and containment. The reason is that viruses
mutate. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and USAMRIID (United States Army Medical Research Institute
of Infectious Diseases ) are wonders of medical research, and they work very hard to understand how infectious
diseases operate and spread. But as wondrous as they are, they cannot know WHEN a virus mutates. They WILL
catch up, but they must first KNOW about the mutation - that means people in the US infected, if it mutates, here.
So the next
time some scientist or physician tells you that there is no chance of something going wrong, start counting,
and remember those movies, hoping that the spokesdoctor is right.
NOW, WE SHOULD ALL BE ANGRY
(August 4, 2014) Our President has exposed us all to possible
plague conditions. Of course, he did not do this on purpose, but he did it, and he, alone,
is responsible for it, nonetheless.
It would be different, were this the first time something he has
done has put Americans in jeopardy. But it isn't. Barack Obama has exposed Americans
to the laziest and most destructive form of government, foreign policies, economics, health
care, and execution of the law. And this latest is the last straw.
Is THIS the place where the plague starts? How can it not be?
Because the President has created this lawlessness along our southern
border with no sign of any executive change, it is now probable, that, of the people pouring through
our border, some will have Ebola - the disease which has no cure and spreads will-I, nil-I.
Unless he does his job and enforces the current laws, turning away the
older teenagers and adults AT the border, and has the children isolated and examined before
admission, it is not just a matter of if. Barack Obama's immigration plan is inefficient and
feckless. Were he not President, it would not be seriously considered. But, he is, and he's being given a pass
by his party, and ultimately the cowards in the Media, because, frankly, they don't understand
that he is a failure at his job.
That's not to say that he has not had political victories, but political victories
cannot cure Ebola when an American is dying because of his bad border policies.
Those who do understand should be very, very angry with this confused and
pitiable man who holds the highest position on Earth, or at the very least, be very afraid for
POLITICAL ROCK.. WITH APOLOGIES..
(August 3, 2014) To the tune of "I'm Just a Bill," from
Schoolhouse Rock, the ABC Network Saturday Morning inserts from the 70's.
I'm just a bill
Yes, I'm only a bill
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill
Well, it's a long, long journey
From the House to the Prez
But the Senate went home
Without voting, they sez
That they don't know if I'll even get a mil
But today I am still just a bill,
Sitting here on Capitol Hill.
I'm just a bill
Yes, I'm only a bill,
And I got as far as Capitol Hill
Well, now I'm stuck outside the Senate
Which is ruled by the Dems.
While the Leader, Harry Reid
Won't even bother to condemn
And the President says it's me he wants to kill
So, today I am still just a bill,
Sitting here on Capitol Hill.
I'm just a bill
Yes, I'm only a bill
But even if they vote for me on Capitol Hill
Well, then I'm off to the White House
Where I'll wait in a line
Cause the Prez thinks he's king
And he just ain't gonna sign
And if he signs me, then he loses
All his peeps on the Hill.
So, today I am still just a bill,
Sitting here on Capitol Hill.
LIBERAL OF THE WEEK
(August 2, 2014) All puppies and most cats - regardless of age -
are liberals. They expect to be taken care of from cradle to grave.
It often seems as if Liberals have fallen asleep. The Democrat Senate went
home before they received legislation from the House.. Republicans wanted to stay, but.. you know
Harry.. it's his nap time.. for a whole month.
"mmfm.. mmmmmmmmmzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. hhhmmmmmmmmm.."
ARE ALIEN CHILDREN COMING TO S.C..?
(August 1, 2014) A little after five pm Thursday afternoon, a caller
to the Bobby Mac Electric Radio Program (WORD radio) made an astonishing claim.
The caller, who has been on before with true information, was in
possession of a list which he said came from a long-time family friend - a Border Agent
- who cannot retire and come home, because he has to be tested for four more
weeks to see if he has caught any egregious diseases. The list contained cities in South Carolina,
Georgia, and North Carolina which will be receiving illegal aliens, rather than them being
returned to their countries of legal residence.
Here is the purported, incomplete list of South Carolina cities:
- West Union 150
- Greenville 200
- Woodruff 150
- Easley 100
- Cayce 200
- Lyman 100
- North Myrtle Beach 250
Now, we have had rumors that some of the illegals were being housed at
Fort Jackson, but that was denied at the highest levels. I'm still skeptical.
Kids on a train - you might be seeing some of these same faces in your own town.. especially if
a leaked list is real.
We were told by Governor Haley that she was told, flat out, by the
Administration that NO children would be coming to South Carolina. If this list is real,
and right now, it has more credibility than any statement by the President, then this
is an act of Federal provocation that has not been seen since 1843.
If true, the President has insulted Gov. Haley and with her, the
entire state of South Carolina. But even worse, he is playing politics with the lives
of teenagers and children - the exact same thing he accused the Republicans of doing.
Saul Alinsky's ugly influence is seen again in vicious and disgusting
Presidential behaviors, even if the list is a complete fabrication.
