The Problem With Dieing


When I was a young boy, no more than five years old, I was shot in the head. Even seventy years later, I still remember it quite vividly. I was visiting my Grand mother Eva Groover. It was a cold winter morning.

I was sitting on the floor in front of a crackling fire in the kitchen fire place waiting for Grandma to finish cooking breakfast on the pot bellied cast iron stove. The next thing I knew I was in the bed looking up at Grandma’s anxious face as she wiped blood off of my forehead. Some how a bullet had been swept into the fire place. The heat from the fire had caused it to go off as if had been shot from a pistol.

The bullet struck my forehead knocking me instantly unconscious. Fortunately it was a glancing blow. If it had been half an inch lower,  I wouldn’t be here writing this today.  I think that’s about as close to actually dieing as I have ever been.

Now, as an old man facing the prospect of death by natural causes, I wonder, will it be the same? Will I just suddenly go black and that’s it? Maybe so.  Or maybe I will wake up in a new form to a new life.  Either way it will be interesting.

Gal Gadot’s Tribute To Hawking


Some people seized Gal Gadot’s tribute to Dr. Hawking as a way to criticize her and find fault. The criticism was stupidly widely publicized by the ignorant main stream media.

Ms. Gadot’s tribute was loving, caring words of praise for a truly great human being, not the ignorant criticism the twisted media portrayed it as being. This is yet another example of the stupidity we are exposed to on a daily basis.

Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, etc.


I’ve thought about this quite a lot and I think the “Holy” men have it wrong. They stand in their churches or synagogues (or their corners of the sidewalk) claiming to have the knowledge of all God’s creation.  Some claiming that the very souls of their listeners will be saved if they will but come forward and repent of their sins. Saved from what? Why Satan and the fiery pit of hell, of course.

Further, they will be rewarded by “eternal life” in “heaven” a place where the streets are paved with gold and everyone, if they are good, becomes  an angel and sits around playing harps all day. I can only assume the music lessons will be free since I don’t know that many people who already know how to play the harp. Even the tone deaf should be fine with this since they will have all of eternity to learn. I’m speaking, of course, of the religions of most of the western civilized world.  I’m not real familiar with the exotic eastern religions.

Now, stop me if I’m wrong, but if you point at the sky, any where in the sky, indicating heaven, aren’t you actually pointing at the universe?  I mean, scientists have sorta figured out that there are actually billions upon billions of stars and planets “up there.” But no one, as of now, has spotted any streets paved with gold or angels sitting around playing harps.

It also occurs to me that with all the deep drilling and exploration of the earth’s subterranean depths, someone, somewhere should have noticed Satan,  Actually, I think he would be one pissed-off dude for being disturbed by all that noisy shit coming from top side if he were down there.  If he is as bad a dude as he’s made out to be, he would have already kicked someone’s ass for doing that.

I’m not trying to make light of Pastors, Priests and Rabbis preaching, well, then again maybe I am a little, but I will say that the typical Sunday School story, with all its embellishments, from the pulpit is just a little too thin for me.  Further I will not believe that an omnipotent God, the creator of this universe, could ever be explained by mere mortals in such simplistic terms.  It’s just the height of human arrogance to think otherwise.

In writing this I’m not being blasphemous in the least, To the contrary, I do fully and whole-heartedly acknowledge the existence and presence of God in and of this life.  I do not acknowledge the “Holiness” of those guys who dress up in their various costumes  and hats preach the gospel. Many of them make large salaries for working less hours than most part-time jobs in the rest of the world. Of course they want to be seen as “Holy Men,” otherwise they’re out of work.

CNN & Chris Cuomo


CNN likes to bill itself as “The most watched net work.” That is just an unmitigated lie. It is a well established and documented fact that FOX is the most watched net work.  Further it likes to characterize Chris Cuomo as a reporter who, “Asks the hard questions.” That’s only true if you are mentally retarded.  Cuomo asks questions in a threatening and demeaning tone. None of which have particularly difficult answers. His specialty is to question slow, dull witted people so he can appear to be bright. Lastly, he rarely reports the news, he just editorializes.

SOTU v. Democrats


Trump’s State of the Union speech was, in my opinion, an excellent forward looking speech. I do NOT consider myself to be a “Republican.”  I am a hard and fast Independent.  I will not EVER permit either party to tell me how to think or how to vote. Having said that, it was a sheer joy to watch Nancy (Sour Puss) Pelosi’s face during the speech.

The cliché about a picture being worth a thousand words was most appropriate.  If Nancy and her crowd hated it, then it must have been right on target.  It wasn’t at all what they wanted to hear because it didn’t serve their agenda.  They want more and bigger government with them controlling it and indeed controlling our lives.

Harry Truman and Franklin D Roosevelt must be spinning in their graves, to borrow yet another cliché. The Democratic party of those two giants has morphed into something that is a disgrace to the institution. Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the Presidency went down in flames even though she had huge support from the main stream media and spent more than a billion dollars trying to win.

Trump appears to be trying to do things that will benefit the common working class people of this country, not things that will “grow” the government. That’s what the Party of Truman and Roosevelt did.  I was only a child when Franklyn D. and “Give ’em hell” Harry were in office, but I know their stories well and am grateful for what they did for the country.  At my age, it won’t mean much to me, but I am sure it will help my children and grandchildren if Trump does what he talked about.

As far as I’m concerned, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can both eat s@#t and die :>)

I didn’t get any of it, did you?


Barack Obama caused the U.S. government to borrow fifteen TRILLION dollars from China. That’s more than ALL of the U.S. presidents BEFORE him borrowed combined! In case there’s any confusion about what that looks like, I’ll write it out numerically for you:  That’s $15,000,000,000,000,000.  Yep, it’s the number fifteen with fifteen zeroes after it. I guess maybe he figured the number fifteen with fifteen zeroes after it had a nice, symmetrical feel to it.

Could he do it without so much of a “mother may I,” from anyone?  You bet your sweet bippy he could and did! I didn’t get any of it, did you? Now, maybe the check’s in the mail, but I sorta doubt it, after all, it’s been more than a year now.  Also I can’t recall ever seeing any explanation about what the money would be spent for, did you?

If anyone out there knows where it went please let me know, or better yet let me know why he’s not in prison or dead.  I don’t have much use for politicians. In my opinion, they all steal, but Obama went way over the top into the stratosphere with his thievery of the American people and he’s still living like a king on the American tax payer’s dime.  Is no one EVER going to ask questions?  Is it really buried that deep?

“US” by Paul Genova


A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges’ assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all. – Justice Antonin Scalia

“US” by Paul Genova
(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016.
I haven’t said too much about this election since the start…but this is how I feel….

I’m noticing that a lot of people aren’t graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.

In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.

Some are apparently “triggered” because they are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.

How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!

You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.

You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.

You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.

You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.

You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created “us” when you attacked our flag.

You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.

You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.

You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.

You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

You created “us” the silent majority.

You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.

You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.

You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”.

“YOU” created “US”.

It really is just that simple.
Everyone needs to see this. Post and resend.

I am amazed…


You know it’s the beginning of a new year and I will soon be 75 years old.  Over those 75 years I’ve seen a lot of strange things in this world. At one time in those years I wrote for a newspaper.  After that I wrote the news scripts for radio station announcers and I also did the news for a television station.

I was taught, and I practiced, that the news is reported exactly as it happened.  If you wanted to put your particular point of view on the news, then you called it an editorial and you could spin it any way you wanted to.

What passes for “news” today is virtually ALL editorials.  Television “journalist” report the “news” according to their particular political persuasions. I think perhaps Donald Trump may have illustrated this very well when he said if he walked on water, the media would report that Donald Trump couldn’t swim. Understand that I am not a big fan of Trump. In his first year as President he has been caught making false or misleading statements almost 2,000 times!

That’s not a very good track record for the leader of the free world.  Why does he do it? I think it’s because he believes that any thing he says is true by virtue of the fact that he said it. Yep, pretty amazing.

What I don’t know


I’ve often said it’s a good thing that I don’t know the day and hour of my death.  If I did know it, I would do two things: I would even the score with some people who have wronged me and I would rid the world of some people we would be better off without.

That probably sounds a little radical to some people, but isn’t it entirely fair and just? I simply can’t go along with the biblical “Turn the cheek.” Those who have deliberately wronged me deserve justice, not another opportunity to do it again.  Those whose only existence in this world is to bring harm and injury to others don’t deserve mercy, they deserve to be ended.

Yes it’s a good thing that I don’t know the day and hour of my death.

The Individual Mandate


CNN and most of the main street media are predicting doom and gloom because the latest Trump (and congressional) initiative has striped away Obama’s individual mandate.  They say it will cause millions of Americans to be uninsured. This lie is exactly why Americans should be suspicious of EVERYTHING those idiots try to promote as “reporting.”

What it actually means is that those millions of Americans are now free to choose whatever insurance plan they want or NO insurance plan if they choose.  The Democrats and their loyal liberal media are literally stewing in their own juices.  They don’t want the freedom this country was founded on, the ignorant bastards want more government control of our lives.

Fortunately, it’s never going to happen.

My one son said not to argue, we can’t really blame liberals, it’s the media’s fault for all the Trump hate and the misinformation. But it’s still hard to stay quiet when they are so misinformed/uninformed. It’s hard not to set them straight even if it makes them angry.

My opinion is they have absolutely no interest in knowing the truth.  What they refuse to believe is that the government (all governments) only have the money they tax from the citizens and none of their own. Redistributing the public’s wealth is NEVER a good idea!

NO NURSING HOME FOR ME!!!!


No nursing home for us. We’ll be checking into a Holiday Inn!

With the average cost for nursing home care being $188.00 per day,
there is a better way when we get old and too feeble.
I’ve already checked on reservations at The Holiday Inn.

For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it’s $59.23 per night.
That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want,
or room service, laundry, Gratuities and special TV movies.

Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer dryer, etc.

Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.
$5 worth of tips a day you’ll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

They treat you like a customer, not a patient.

There’s a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.

The handicap bus will also pick you up
(if you fake a decent limp).

To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.

For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of
The nice restaurants there.

While you’re at the airport, fly somewhere.
Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.

It takes months to get into decent nursing homes, Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.

And you’re not stuck in one place forever — you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.

Want to see Hawaii ? They have Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem..
They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.

The Inn has a night security person and daily room service.
The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they’ll call an ambulance . . .
Or the undertaker. If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip,
and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you,
and probably check in for a few days mini vacation.

The grand-kids can use the pool.

What more could I ask for?

So, when I reach that golden age,
I’ll face it with a grin.

Which is it?


A few years ago, actually I think it was the 1970s, we had what was then called a “gas shortage.” Our federal government and the news media all loudly blamed it on the Arabs.  They let it be known far and wide that those greedy bastards were just robbing us by withholding their oil so we would have to pay more for our gas at the pump.

More recently, this year, we have yet another “gas shortage.”  This time the blame fell to the Colonial Pipe Line running from the Louisiana gulf coast northward. The media says America has plenty of oil to support its own demand if only that darned hurricane Katrina hadn’t damaged the pipe line so badly that it can’t function at full capacity.

The problem here is that there are still plenty of us old farts around who still remember the first lie that was put out there: “We were totally dependent on those damned Arabs.”  Let’s see, between then and now, did we stop driving so many cars? Or maybe we have more cars on the roads, but our cars are so much more fuel efficient now that we don’t use as much gas?

Actually I believe it’s neither one.  I think the real truth is that the elite wealthy who own the “energy” producing companies know when they can drain more off the common man’s wealth and put it in their own pockets so that’s what they do.  The working class can’t do a damned thing about it either.  They just have to suck it up and pay the price.

Sorry about that media moguls.  Either you aren’t as clever as you think or, perhaps not everyone is as stupid as you think. Some people have lived long enough to remember.

You won’t see this again!


Harry & Bess (This seems unreal.)
Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House,
they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them,
granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not
for sale.”

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be
the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.” As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!”

I say dig him up and clone him!

Questions I have…


It’s strange, but I keep wondering what is beyond this life.  Perhaps I should be thinking about is, not what, but if there really is anything after this life.  If there is, will I remember this body’s experiences?  Will I be able to some how reconnect with things and people in this world? My guess is the answer to these questions is probably not. Maybe my end is near and there’s just no one who can answer these questions for me.

I should say right here that so called “Holy” people mean nothing to me. Most of them are just over paid part-timers who don’t contribute anything of real value except what they gain for themselves. If I live a “good” life, according to their rules and values, then I’m rewarded by eternal bliss.  If I don’t then I’m punished by eternal damnation?  No that is way too thin. Although most of the world’s great “religions” are based on this concept, I’m just not buying into it.

An Alaskan miracle…. maybe now its my turn?


Pete's Alaska

….it was another Saturday in the far North of Alaska and my friend Rose and I were heading down the mountain to a neighbors home. During the summer months we regularly drove down to drink coffee and catch up on what happened over the past week, but this week it would be different. My neighbor Vicky who had been a smoker for many decades told us she has quit smoking! Now I know Vicky, like myself, has smoked since in our teens and to have stopped in what seemed to me to be just a week was akin to a miracle of Alaskan proportions.

Later over the coffee she told us she has been on a new drug called Chantix for a little over three weeks and has been gradually cutting back the number of cigarettes she smoked each day until just a few days previous she stopped completely. I…

Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing


Some people are amazed that with a Republican president and a Republican congress our government can’t accomplish anything.  That number doesn’t include me.  Congress is composed of the house of representatives and the senate, both are supposedly completely dominated by the Republican party. This, in and of itself, would be a rare thing. The Democrats controlled Congress for 75 years. The men and women who now have majority control of both houses wear the Republican moniker.

The reality is that those who got elected to the latest congress are Republicans in name only.  Their actual persuasions lean to the far left. Their advisors were smart enough to realize that with the wave of resentment against the Democratic party, they would have  no hope of winning if they ran as Democrats.  Don’t kid yourself, this is where their party loyalty kicks in; they simply pledge allegiance to the Republican party and get elected. They can still vote along Democratic party lines even wearing the Republican shirt. Their first and most important allegiance is to get elected. After that they are in position to serve as they please, not their constituents the American people who elected them, the PARTY.

Don’t believe that’s true? As the old cliche’ says, “Just hide and watch.” Yes it’s true they hate Donald Trump because he’s a successful business man and not a professional politician like them, but what they hate even more is giving up the control they have had for so long.

Government doesn’t have any money except that which it takes from its people through taxes. Thanks to the Democratic control of congress for so long, the USA has the highest tax rates in the world.  From those taxes, members of congress pay themselves $174,000 per year. And that’s for what amounts to a part-time job; they only average “working”  140 days a year. That, however can be as few as 101. I won’t bother to list all the freebies and perks they give themselves. The average American worker is some where in the $50,000 per year range and works 260 days a year.

Puerto Rico


The story you do not hear.  PUERTO RICO

I just received this from a life long friend.  His brother-in-law is
volunteering in Puerto Rico so this is coming from someone that has his
‘boots on the ground’ and can actually see what is occurring in that locale.

Ken has been volunteering for the last 3 weeks in Puerto Rico..

The story you don’t hear

Gary:
I hear some of the B.S. that the press is spewing.  Let me tell you what is
actually occurring here in Puerto Rico..
I got online for the first time in days and one of the very first things I
saw was an out and out lie about the government’s response to the crisis I
am in the middle of.  I don’t care if you hate or love Trump, using the
crisis in Puerto Rico to spread political lies is disgusting!  I am
literally across the street from the airport, and the hotel I am in is where
many of the first responders are staying, so here is what is going on from
someone who is actually here seeing it.
The government is here and has been here!  Every single day plane after
plane full of FEMA, FBI, homeland security, army, Air Force, Marines, and
extra police officers from all over the country shows up.  Cargo plane after
cargo plane and ship after ship full of supplies shows up.
There is a hospital ship off the coast that I can see from the beach.
The response was quick and it keeps coming!  They are out every day from sun
up until sun down.
This isn’t a political issue, it is a humanitarian one.  The lies being
spread about the response aren’t helping the people here, it is just fueling
hate based on lies!  If you want to help Puerto Rico, donate money or
supplies and pray.  If you want to play politics find
something else to argue about!   Not like there aren’t hundreds of
topics for you to choose from!
Edited to add this- Roads have been completely destroyed in many areas,
especially the remote one.  The military and FEMA are going out to these
places on foot with 100 lbs + packs on their backs  It is requiring them to
cut their way through flooded areas to get there.  It will take time to
reach everyone when conditions are as bad as they are.  President Trump
dispatched 140 helicopters, 28 ships, 6 Army field hospitals, 3 Navy Seabee
Battalions, 5 US Army Combat Engineer Battalions, 3 Civil Affairs
battalions, 2 Nuclear Submarines capable of generating 2.8 Gigawatts of
Power, release 300,000 tons of food, medical supplies, and water from
Military stocks to Puerto Rico…
Please stop touting the party line of bashing our President when his actions
have been excellent for the island.
There’s been a string of 4 horrendous Hurricanes..  it’s going take some
time.  The immature LIES devoid of facts do not help a single person on the
island.  No President has had to face this level of domestic disaster and
done a better job.  Trump is doing one helluva good job..

I’ve had my fourth heart attack and I’m sill here.  It happened last Wednesday morning.  After I had a nice pancake breakfast, I suddenly developed a very bug pain right in the center of my chest and I made it to the sink before I threw up. “Oh shit!,” I thought, “Here we go again.”

I told my wife, “I think you better call 911.  I’m having another heart attack.” She called them and of course they had me chew up an aspirin and take a nitro tablet while We waited for the ambulance. I think doing that prevented it from becoming a full-blown cardiac event.  I only had to stay two days in the short-term care unit until they let me go home.

so I’m still here and I’m not sure why.  Maybe God still has plans for me.  I don’t know.

I’m Losing My Wife


Before you get the wrong idea, no we’re not getting a divorce and no she isn’t physically leaving me. But I am, bit by bit losing her.  Her mother died of Alzheimer’s disease when she was in her 80s. I’m not sure if that’s what’s happening to Kathryn, but it could be.

Next month we’ll be married 48 years and we’re both in our 70s.  She is three years older than me. When I first noticed her obvious short-term memory loss, I was very much alarmed.  I was also in great pain because I wasn’t sure how I could live without her.  I guess I’ve kinda gotten used to it now, I take it in stride most of the time when she asks me questions about things I’m certain she already knows but it still hurts when I think about how very sharp her mind was.

For the most part, she still goes about her daily chores around the house. We are both retired.  We go to church and church social functions. No one but our two grown children are aware of it. both of them and their families live within five minutes of us. If anyone else knows it, they haven’t said anything.

It just seems strange, I still have her with me, yet I know she is slipping away.  How much longer will she last? That’s the really hard part, no one can tell me.  I talked to a doctor about it and the doctor said there are medicines that will slow it down, but there is no cure.

I always thought I would be the first to go.  I have survived three heart attacks and open heart surgery.  My heart only functions at about 20 percent and I’m not physically capable of doing very much so I’m lucky to still be around. My mind is still quite capable of doing everything.  The body is just shot to hell.  I guess I am hoping I will be the first to go.  I don’t want to be around if she goes to that same place her mother did.

The Bible


What passes for pastoral sermons these days all too often amounts to little more than biblical interpretation.  Preachers, pastors, priests, etc. stand in their pulpits, having built an entire sermon around a segment or segments of the bible, and explain what it means.  I’m sorry, but that seems kind of trite to me.

The bible is a history book.  It is the history of the Jewish and Christian faiths. It covers approximately 4,000 plus or minus years.  Let’s not include “Genesis” it is truly a work of fiction. Let’s just talk about the rest of this history book. Blasphemy you say? No, not really if you really examine it.  Do we worship the bible? I am quite certain I never have and never will. Why should I? It is not sacred, it merely pretends to inform us of the events leading up to and including the death of Jesus Christ.

In some printings it is titled the Holy Bible, in others it is just the Bible.  Very often (but not always) the words “inspired by God” are included in many printed versions.  How does the publishers know this? They weren’t around thousands of years ago when the words were written. This is just an example of a publisher’s selling tool. Also the words
“According to”” as in the gospel according to is yet another publisher’s selling tool. Those words were added in the last 50 years. Don’t believe it? Just look at a really old version of the bible and see what you find there.

In truth, the bible is the best selling book ever to hit the world wide market. Tons of money have been made from its sales.  I’m sure tons more will be made in the future, but none of it will come from me. I only worship & acknowledge God, not any book, not even the “Holy Bible.”

POOR MAXINE … I should have gotten a Government Job!


What did you expect from Pelosi’s buddy?

SHE FEELS YOUR PAIN!

Busted Poverty Warrior Maxine Waters’ Plush $4.5 Million Los Angeles Mansion:  Indoor Swimming Pool … Outdoor gates and walls…

Posted on April 26, 2017

How can a member of Congress afford a $4.5 million Los Angeles mansion that takes up half a city block in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country?  Ask Maxine Waters.

Ask her about her other two homes as well, worth another approximate $850,000 to $1.1 million.  Savvy real estate acquisitions for a public servant with a $174,000 House of Representatives salary.  Whoops, almost left out Maxine’s time share property in Palm Springs, California.  Add that to her list.

Only one of her homes is located in the gritty Los Angeles congressional district which she was elected to represent.  Her exclusive estate is miles north … well outside her congressional district … far away from Los Angeles’ street crime, murder and the folks she is supposed to help.  Apparently, Maxine has addressed concerns about help.  A private company maintains her property and impressive manicured landscaping at the mansion.

Oh, we almost forgot this too.  Maxine Waters’ posh 6,000 square foot Los Angeles estate is protected with wrought-iron gates at the front doors and gates for driveways and patios on each side of the Mediterranean-style abode.  And add a long brick wall that protects the side of the sprawling property.  There are some gates and fencing in the back also, near the custom barbecue area and the detached structure that houses Maxine’s newly built indoor pool.  Or is the swimming pool in the main house?  We’ll have to ask the butler.

For someone who touts a wall-free society where illegal aliens can roam free, Maxine Waters sure seems concerned about gates and walls to protect her in the Los Angeles mansion.  Perhaps she’s worried the wayward homeless or DREAMers might pool hop or grille a Salisbury steak while she’s busy on CNN railing about President Donald Trump or how she really cares about financially-strapped Americans struggling to make ends meet.

The Maxine Waters estate boasts large scale rooms touted as “perfect for gracious entertaining” in one Los Angeles – based publication.  It includes a “stunning entry with a dramatic staircase … lovely pecan paneling in family room … guest house too!”

Who keeps an eye on the place when Maxine is on the east coast fighting world poverty and hunger?  Her neighbors include the mayor of Los Angeles, singer Chris Brown, Norman Chandler, the owner of the Los Angeles Times, actor Neal McDonough, Lord Baltimore’s Christian Audigier, among many others including the former Tudor Revival style mansion of deceased oil magnate J. Paul Getty.  The mayor of Los Angeles resides in the former mansion of Getty.  He’s a Democrat too.
And all this time Maxine had America conned into believing she was elected to her Washington, D.C. post to help the downtrodden folks struggling in poverty-plagued inner cities like the one in her backyard.  Well, not that backyard.  That could get dicey.  Those folks might want to get out of the sun and use the air-conditioned indoor pool area.  What … your 100-year-old imported marble floors are too good for the homeless?
Wait, it even gets more ridiculous.  We found approximately 17 building permits on file since Waters purchased this home in 2004.  Waters had many additions built on the nearly 100-year old property, costing another estimated $1 million-plus, according to our math.  Likely more.  She commissioned the indoor pool built and even paid a plumber to pipe hot and cold water, as well as propane gas to her outdoor grilling area and custom kitchen.  She added a pergola too, building records show and an additional 15’ X 18′ custom patio cover.  Hey, before you judge:  It gets hot in Los Angeles and shade is a premium.  Ask any homeless veteran.

Some of the building permits filed on the tony Windsor Square section home provided details like “Interior remodel in kitchen family room and master bathroom … addition of French doors and windows relocate windows remove interior walls … addition of shear walls and beams at ground floor.  Many other permits did not give explanations of the home improvement work.
Maxine Waters’ house takes up the same geographic acreage as two of her neighbors’ properties combined.  That’s an extra-large carbon footprint, especially in Los Angeles.

A typical Democratic phony loaded with multiple homes, cash and the walls and iron to protect them from would-be troublemakers.  Maxine Waters, who rails about President Donald Trump’s financials and tax returns, filed her most financial disclosure form with Congress in 2015.  She lists her approximate net worth in the $450,000 range.  That’s a mere fraction of the amount of the home improvements made to her Los Angeles estate.  Maxine Waters lists the mortgage on her Los Angeles mansion at somewhere between $1 million and $5 million.  What’s a few million between D.C. friends?

Please tell us again, Maxine:  Who should be investigated and impeached?  Maxine rants about the plague of homelessness and the GOP’s contribution to it.  The irony is thick.  It’s worth clicking and reading the story while she talks about poverty in America.

Built in 1924, Maxine Waters’ Mediterranean-style estate is worth $4.5 million today.
Deadbolt gates on the front doors, gates on the driveways, patios.  So much for carefree border-less living.
Flanked by a long brick and landscape wall that runs half a city block.
Main house, guest house, outdoor barbecue island and kitchen are seen here.
A view from Maxine’s neighbor who also boasts a large and long wall.
The sprawling property dwarfs the two properties behind it.
East Coast digs.  Maxine’s Washington, D.C pad across the street from the Albanian & Costa Rican embassies.

Spread this far and wide around the country to let everyone know what a
hypocritical crazy crook old mad Maxine is.  How does this looney leftist pay
the taxes and maintain all the properties on a $174K gov’t salary?

The obvious answer is that she cannot possibly maintain and pay the taxes on those properties on a $174,000 salary. She is obviously being fed money under the table through her vast corrupt, kickback system.

Why I Love my Doctor


I recently had to choose a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, she said I was doing fairly well for my age. (I am 81 )
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking her, ‘Do you think I’ll live to be 85 ?
She asked, ‘Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or hard liquor?’
‘Oh no,’ I replied. ‘I’m not doing drugs, either!’
Then she asked, ‘Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?’
‘I said, ‘Not much… My former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!’
‘Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?’
‘No, I don’t,’ I said.
She asked, ‘Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?’
‘No,’ I said……..
She looked at me and said,

‘Then, why do you even give a shit?

Why I like Bullys


Why would anyone like bullys you may ask. Surely they are to be despised and avoided at all times.  No I say, they serve a very useful function, especially when I am confronted by one.

First of all, a bully is almost always full of himself and very confident.  That, in and of itself, makes him an easy target.  He will have so much confidence, he will let down his guard, thinking he is invulnerable.  I do what I can to encourage his confidence.

Next, I experience a great deal of satisfaction when I make him bleed, or at the very least, make him wish he had never met me.  That is the best feeling in the world.

It doesn’t take courage to hurt a bully and put him in his place, just the realization that inside, he is a coward and is over compensating for some reason.  What reason?  I don’t really give a damn, I just enjoy the satisfaction.

I’m a writer


English was always my best subject in high school. I don’t know why, but it always just made sense to me and its rules were easy to understand and follow. I guess that’s why I was a newspaper writer in the Air Force.  Many things I wrote were published in civilian newspapers as well as the Air Force Times.  After the Air Force, I went to college and majored in accounting because I reasoned accounting was something that there would always be a need for.  I won’t lie, it was a struggle for me.

Today I’m way past retirement age, but my writing skills are still there and I have the satisfaction of knowing I’m putting my beloved expertise to very good use. My 43 year old school teacher son is trying to improve his future, and that of his family, by furthering his education. He has to write tons of papers and he sends them all to me to edit and revise. His writing skill is, quite frankly, abysmal to put it mildly. Despite that, he graduated from the Master’s program with honors. He is now engaged in what is called the Specialist’s Degree program and will soon graduate from it also with honors.

He does all the required research and sends it to me to compose, write and complete.  I’m happy to do it because, quite frankly, I’m not sure I was as good at being a father to him as I could, or perhaps, should have been when he was younger.  I was too busy building a career to have spent as much time with him as I should have.  Maybe I’m guilt tripping myself a little too much, but I feel good about what I’m doing now.  No one knows about me and they don’t need to know.  They just see his good work and I’m fine with that.

He jokes and says when he gets his Doctorate, we are both going to walk across the stage.  I told him that won’t be necessary, I just hope I live long enough to be there to see it.

It wasn’t God


Three times evil men who meant to do me harm, died of “natural causes” i.e. heart attacks. At first I thought it was God who was protecting me. Then I realized that God is love and he wouldn’t do that. I know someone who definitely would do that without any hesitation: my dead father.

I have seen enough of people who reached back into this world after they died to know it is really possible for it to happen. I have always felt angst because my father and I were at odds when he died. I wish that we could have been reconciled before it happened.

He was accustomed to violence, he had fought in the World War two in Europe. He killed many people during that time and had been shot himself. We were some what at odds when he died, but he still loved me and he wouldn’t have hesitated to protect me.

Thanks Dad for the protection. Ending those guys at just the right moment is much appreciated.

I Almost Died….


I’m out of the hospital now.  My wife took me to the emergency room because I wasn’t feeling well.  The E.R. Doc admitted me because of my congestive Heart Failure. As time passed, I began feeling MUCH worse. The second night, I was having a lot of trouble breathing. It’s very unsettling when you can’t even draw in a breath of air. I felt certain I was going to die at any moment. I must have struggled for half an hour before a nurse finally came in and called respiratory therapy. The therapy worked and my breathing returned to normal.

I’m old now, 73, and I’ve had a very full and rewarding life so I wouldn’t say I’d have missed much if I had died then and there.  I would say it would have been a hard death, not quick and painless, but drawn out as if I were drowning again and again.  My wife and daughter were there.  They also thought they were watching me die.

I know my time to die will come and probably soon.  I don’t fear death, but I do hope it will just be a quick one with no one watching.  I don’t want anyone to share this experience, particularly not loved ones. If God is listening, maybe he will grant this simple request. I don’t think it’s a lot to ask.

What Are You People Thinking?


This is an open letter to Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota , Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Rachel Madows.

You people control what passes for the “news” these days. In reality it isn’t news at all. It is what, at one time, would have been called editorializing, if the truth be told.  most of us knows that isn’t likely to happen.  Unfortunately, a large part of the U.S. population has been “dumbed down” to the point that they don’t even recognize what you are doing. They think you are actually acting as responsible journalist and reporting the news.

Having been a former professional journalist, it’s easy for me to understand that what you are doing is editorializing every time you go on the air. Let’s just see what the definition for editorializing is: “to set forth one’s position or opinion on some subject in, or as if in, an editorial.” doesn’t that sound very familiar?  It was noted by an independent agency that some 98% of what you report on Donald Trump is all negative.

Your negative “reporting” must be being done with the full support of your employer, perhaps even as a mandate from your employer.  What you fail to realize is that all of your bitching, moaning and criticism will never change the outcome of the election and your negative tone just makes you look bad.  Not Trump, you.

I think it’s entirely likely that Trump will be a two term president and he will be followed by Mike Pence, who will also be a two term president.  What that means, in realistic terms is that, in all likelihood, you will spend a large portion of your career in negative, stupid editorializing, instead of positive journalistic reporting.

I titled this piece, “What Are You People thinking?” perhaps the question should be, “Are you people thinking at all?”

Questions


Scientist tell us that modern humans (That is people who looked and acted more like us than the earlier six species of humans.) first appeared about 200,000 years ago. God in the person of Jesus Christ chose to reveal himself to humanity only 2,000 years ago. That begs the question, Why did he wait so long?

According to the New King James Bible, John  3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” If this can be relied on to be true, literally tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, who were born and lived in the 198,000 years before Christ were simply ignored by God. Perhaps the bible isn’t completely accurate except in a philosophical way,

That quotation leaves a lot of room for questions. “Whoever believes in him” Does that mean whoever believes the person Jesus lived or whoever believes and practices living according to the principles taught by Jesus? I choose to believe the latter.

Yet another question is, what’s God been up to for the last 2,000 years?  Must humanity wait yet another 198,000 before the return of God as predicted  in the bible? If we’re on our own for long periods of time.  I think time has little meaning to God; it’s only important to us humans.

What’s It Really Worth, And To Who?


Organized religion got its start about 4,000 years ago with the acceptance of “monotheism” by the Jews. That is, they simply recognized the “one God” concept and began ritualistic group practices of worshiping the “one God.” Further, they created the “Priest” ruling class, who wrote the Tora, a document that essentially defined what they could and could not do to remain “holy” in the sight of this God. Thus they had everything they needed to become a true “religion.”  It should be noted that Islam also had its start around the same time and followed a similar pattern of establishing itself.

Fast forward 2,000 years,  God incarnate, in the form of Jesus Christ, choices to make  himself known to the world much to the chagrin of the Jews, who refused to acknowledge him as the one true God, primarily because of the perceived threat he posed to their “Priest” ruling class.  There’s more than a little irony in that the Jews’ “Priests” actually aided in the creation of the  new religion that was in competition with their own.  With the public persecuting of the self-proclaimed “Messiah,” by the Jews he became a much publicized martyr.

The Gentiles pretty much followed the same pattern as the Jews in setting up their religion.  They simply built on what the Jews had already begun. They incorporated the Jews’ Torah into their own “Holy Bible” as the “Old Testament” and added the historical accounts of the life of Jesus and his teaching following his death and resurrection.  Thus their Bible was and is a historical accounting of the totality of the Christian faith, including all of the philosophies of how one must live to be righteous in the sight of God, from both the old and new testament perspective.

The Christian Holy Bible was canonized in 325 A.D. under the auspices of the Roman Emperor Constantine, who created the council of Nicaea for that purpose.  Constantine used the council’s work as a means of gaining political control of the multi-fractured Christian churches. The council choose from literally dozens of  written “Gospels” to include only four in the new testament.  Apparently, those four were deemed to be the most representative historical accounts.

The Christian church is today splintered into literally hundreds of “Denominations” and sub groups, all supposedly in support of the teachings in the Holy Bible, however, in reality they exist to serve the “Priest” class, not the parishioners.  I realize how cynical that sounds, but I am not writing this in service to the self-proclaimed “Holy” men and women. It should be noted that the Jewish faith has also splintered some what, however, not nearly to the extent that the Christian church has.

The Christian bible is, by and large, never viewed as a historical document, although that is precisely what it is. It is seen to be a “holy” document to be worshipped and “studied” as the means by which one may be “saved” and understand the true nature of God. Many today, at the behest of “Holy” men, subscribe to the belief that the words written in the bible are set in stone, i.e. they are not subject to any interpretation.  The ancients who wrote those words were the scholars of their times and knew full well how to use literary devices to make their writing the most effective.  The bible is full of examples of literary devices, parables, imagery, allegories, etc.

I could go on writing in greater detail, but I won’t. I have my thoughts about who profits the most from the points I’ve touched on, I leave it to your good judgment to come to your own conclusions.

Service…


 
I became confused when I heard the word “Service” used
with these agencies:
Internal Revenue ‘Service’
U.S. Postal ‘Service’
Cable TV ‘Service’
Civil ‘Service’
State, City, County & Public ‘Service’
Customer ‘Service’
This is not what I thought ‘Service’ meant.
But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them
said he had hired a bull to Service’ a few cows.
BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all
those agencies are doing.
I hope that you are now just as enlightened as I am.

A Lawyer Story…


One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.
He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass ?” “We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”

“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the lawyer said.

“But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there eating grass under that tree”

“Bring them along,” the lawyer replied.
Turning to the second poor man he stated, “You may come with us, also.”

The other man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!”

“Bring them all as well,” the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.

Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
The lawyer replied, “Glad to do it.
You’ll really love my place.
The grass is almost a foot high.”

Did you really think this was going to be a heart-warming story about a lawyer?

Mathematics: 


This comes  from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70  yrs. experience.
It has an indisputable  mathematical logic. 
It also made me Laugh Out  Loud.
 

This is a strictly …..  mathematical  viewpoint… and it goes like  this:


What Makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever  wonder about those people who say they are giving  more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings  where someone wants you to give over  100%.

How about achieving 103%?

What  makes up 100% in life? 

Here’s a little  mathematical formula that might help you answer  these questions: 

If: 
A B C D E F G H I J  K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 

Is  represented as: 
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14  15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26. 

Then:  

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =  
98%

And  

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E  
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =  
96%  

But ,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E  
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =  
100%  

And,  


B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T  

2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =  
103%  

AND, look how far ass  kissing  will take you. 

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G  
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7  = 
118%  

So, one can conclude  with mathematical certainty, that while  Hard  work  and  Knowledge will get you close, and  Attitude  will get you there. Its  the  Bullshit  and  Ass  Kissing that will put you over the  top  

Now you  know why Politicians are where they  are!            

I’ve never seen a better explanation than this formula………….. 
how true it is.

Who Cares?


 

Unusual to find any jokes these days, everyone is too serious.

At  the VFW one night minding my own business when this FAT ugly chick came up behind me, grabbed my behind and said, “You’re kinda cute. You gotta phone number?”

I said, “Yeah, . . .  you gotta pen?”

She said, “Yeah, I got a pen”.

I said, “Then you’d better get back in it before the farmer misses you.”

When you’re seventy……………who cares?

**********

The next day, I went to the drug store and told the clerk “Give me 3 packets of condoms, please.”

Lady Clerk:  “Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?”

I said “Nah… She’s purty good  lookin’…..”

When you’re seventy…………..who cares?

***********

Last night, I went back to the VFW hall and was talking to a young woman who had wandered in.

She said, “If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you’d look all right.”

I said, “If I did that, I’d be talking to your friends over there instead of you.”

Cost me a fat lip, but…

When you’re seventy……………who cares?

**********

I was telling a woman in the Club about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her breasts.

“Really” she said, “Go on then… try.”

After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said, “Come on, what day was I born?”

I said, “Yesterday.”

Cost me a kick in the —–, but…

When you’re seventy……………who cares?

*********

I got caught taking a pee in the swimming pool today.

The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in.

When you’re seventy……………who cares?

**********

I went to our VFW last night and saw a BIG woman dancing on a table.

I said, “Good legs.”

The girl giggled and said, “Do you really think so?”

I said, “Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now.”

When you’re seventy……………who cares?

Strange But True…..


 

The year was 1947.  Some of you will recall that on  July 8, 1947, a little more than 69 years ago,
numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO), with five aliens aboard,
crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside  Roswell,  New Mexico.
This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force,
as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations.
However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948, nine months after the alien crash, the following people were born:
Barrack Obama  Sr.
Albert A. Gore, Jr.
Hillary Rodham
William J. Clinton
John F. Kerry
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer
Joe Biden
This is the obvious consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses.
I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you.   It did for me.
Now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens!!

The Wisdom of An Old Jewish Man


A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time.

So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site.

She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an interview.

“Pardon me, sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name? 

“Morris Feinberg,” he replied.

“Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?”

“For about 60 years.”

“60 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?”

“I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims.”

“I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop.”

“I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults and to love their fellow man.”

 “I pray that politicians tell us the truth and put the interests of the people ahead of their own interests.”

 And finally “I pray that everyone will be happy”.

 “How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?” 

 “Like I’m talking to a fucking wall”

This is exactly what is wrong with our country!    AMERICA FIRST ! ! ! !


LETTER FROM A FLORIDA TEACHER
Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are NOT U.S. citizens and who get the PELL Grant, which is a federal grant (no payback required) plus other federal grants to go to school?  
One student from  the Dominican Republic told me that she didn’t want me to find a job for her after she finished my  program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting a PELL Grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money left over.  
She was looking  into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and  into CARIBE which is a special program (check it out – I did) for immigrants  and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go  to school or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not  going to be a U.S. Citizen because she plans to return to  the Dominican Republic someday and that she ‘loves HER country.’
I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the U.S. is giving her and then  not even bothering to become a citizen and she told me that it doesn’t  bother her, because  that is what the money is there for! 
I asked the CARIBE  administration about their program and if you ARE a U.S. citizen, you don’t  qualify for their  program.  And all the while, I am  working a full day,  my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and  everyone in my family works and pays for our education.  
Something is wrong  here. I am sorry,  but after hearing that they want to  sing the National  Anthem in Spanish – enough is enough. That’s a real slap in the face. It was  written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the  translation — not even close.   
I don’t care  whether this offends someone or not but this is MY COUNTRY.   IF IT IS  YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please pass this along.  I am not against  immigration — I just expect immigrants to come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past  — and GOD BLESS AMERICA

I talked to a to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way. 

 He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage.” 

 I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?” 

 “Oh no, nothing like that,” he said. “No, no…. I was paroled.”

Got to love the Marines, language and all. God Bless Colonel Jack Fessender.  


                                                  

    Marines have a wonderful way with words – clear, concise and to the point

      THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO KEEP IT GOING! If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That’s because they’re praying.

This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. “These are federal employees,” says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, “on federal property and on federal time… For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately.”

When asked about the ACLU’s charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said,  “To hell with ACLU!  GOD Bless Our Warriors.  Send the ACLU to Afghanistan! Then watch those SONS OF BITCHES pray.”

Please send this to people you know so everyone will know how stupid the ACLU is getting in trying to remove GOD from everything and every place in America .

May God Bless America ,

One Nation Under GOD!  What’s wrong with the picture? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! 

GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT!  THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES

IN GOD WE TRUST

Semper Fi

********************************************************************************************************************************

Just so you know, two of the largest contributors to the ACLU are The Ford Foundation and George Soros.  Evil attracts evil.  As they say, “Follow the money.”.  Our biggest enemies are from within.

Post Election Analysis – Hillary President of California.


We hear a cacophony of blaring and bleating from the media and the Hillary gaggle that she won the popular vote and therefore she should be president, 60,839,497 to 60,265,847.  47.8% to 47,3% with the remaining 4.9% going to the other candidates.

But here are the facts:
Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC.  62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.
Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821.  61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates.
Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.
But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one populace
state from overriding the vote of the others.  Trump’s Campaign Manager,
Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised
her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.
This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states
that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
At its lowest point since the civil war!  Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party?  When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:
 1)  The Presidency.
2)  A majority of the House of Representatives.
3)  A majority of the Senate.
4)  Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5)  Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6)  A majority of the Supreme Court.
The above has never happened before in American history.
Think about that and let it sink in for a moment.
And it’s all because of one reason:  Barack Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats.
—————————– —————————— ————-
It’s important to pass this on.  With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.

A Good Catholic Joke


Trump and the Pope
Have you heard about Trump inviting the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht?
The Pope accepted, and during lunch a puff of wind blew the Pontiff’s hat off, right into
the water. It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.
The crew and the security team were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump
waved them off, saying “Never mind, boys, I’ll get it.”
The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up,
walked back on the water, climbed onto the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.
The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope’s entourage were speechless also.
No one knew what to say, not even the Pope.
But that afternoon, NBC , CNN and the NY Times/ Washington Post all  knew how to cover the story. Their banner headlines all  read:
Trump can’t swim!

I Told You So!!!!


I told you in one of my earlier postings that the Clinton Bitch would try to make a come back.  She is NEVER going to believe that she can’t live in the White House again.  When she is dead is when she will stop trying.

The following was recently reported by MSNBC about the former “Secretary.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signaled she was ready to come back into the spotlight for Donald Trump’s presidency, according to a message of appreciation she sent her supporters Monday.

“I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world,” Clinton wrote on her official Facebook page.

“I wish you and your family health, happiness, and continued strength for the New Year and the work ahead. I look forward to staying in touch in 2017. Onward!” she continued.

Clinton later used another social media platform to hint at her possible intention of re-entering the limelight.
