Damnatio Memoraie!

Damnatio Memoraie is a latin term for ‘Condemnation of Memory’. (Sounds like something from Harry Potter) In Roman times, anyone who fell from grace would have their statues, monuments, or references removed or destroyed with the purpose of erasing them from history.

ISIS has been doing the same thing in the middle east. They call it ‘Durka-Durka-Durka’ or something.

It’s hard to not look around today and see the same thing occurring in America by these supposed ‘do-gooders’ who are out to make the world a nice comfy bubble of safety and security from any sort of hurt feelings for everyone… everyone except those who don’t agree with them.  Those guys and girls obviously deserve the hurt feelings that are beaten into them with baseball bats by those masked tolerant/accepting/loving people from the left.

Because they are mind-boggingly stupid, violent, and hypocritically intolerant people.

So now we have buildings and streets being renamed because someone got ‘offended’. We have statues and monuments torn down or moved to a discrete location out of supposed shame for what a bunch of clowns think they stand for. We have some poor Asian American guy getting pulled from TV because his name happens to be Robert Lee. We have people who want to tear down Mount Rushmore and Monticello.

Where does this end?

After everything America is founded on is destroyed?

After the White House is destroyed(built with slave labor), after the Constitution is burned(written by slave owners), after New York City is renamed(named after a slave trader), after the Founding Fathers names have been stricken from history because they may have owned slaves?

What is the end game here?

Other than to convince people that America is founded on racism, bigotry, and hatred and needs to be fundamentally re-made to a more politically correct America(Ie LIBERAL AMERICA).

Which is the sort of America where its socially acceptable for the masked protesting masses to beat anyone who dares to disagree or voice a differing opinion.

So what past generations of Americans felt worthy of honor or remembrance (Or maybe just to thumb their nose at someone), decades later a handful of micro-aggressed wimps can destroy or remove by being obnoxious enough (or criminal enough) that someone finally listens or gives in to them.

Did you know the Governor of North Carolina, wanted to take the statutes down because they might injure a protestor by falling on them when they destroy them?

Sheesh.

There are REAL problems out there, like the threat of a nuclear war from North Korea. The constant barrage of Radical Islamic attacks. The debt ceiling. Obamacare. Hurricane Harvey and the destruction in Texas and Louisiana. The upcoming waves of tourists into the mountains as the leaves begin to change in a few months.

But no, here we are. Dealing with this ridiculous B.S.

Do you know what Auschwitz looks like today?

This:

Auschwitz-birkenau-main_track

1,100,000 ‘undesirable’ lives were snuffed out there.

It’s amazing that grass even grows on that wretched ground.

There’s an entire RACE that should be offended by what happened in Nazi Germany.

But it STILL STANDS.

As a remembrance of what people can do to each other. Because history that is forgotten is oft repeated. And as long as that monument to the horrors of the 1.1 million that died there exists, it will NEVER be forgotten.

BTW – Did YOU know we put Japanese-Americans in internment camps during WWII by the Democrat President FDR?  Probably not. Damnatio Memoraie!

Was slavery wrong? Yes. Was it the custom of the times? Yes. Did 1,000,000 Americans die because of it? NO. Sorry, but the majority of the South did not go to war to keep slaves they didn’t have.

By the way, I don’t have a dog in this fight. If I recall correctly, my ancestors were eating dirt in the mountains because they were so poor. My great-something-er-other was like 6 or so, and his father was 60+, so they weren’t able to go slay the invading Irish Immigrants that were being marched down, straight off the boat, from the North. (They were probably told we had a lot of potatoes.)

(The details are inaccurate in the above statement, but the jist is not)

So should every reference, every mention, every monument that can even remotely be connected to racism be erased from current and future history because it offends someone?

No.

Because all countries have their dark days, and America, as a magnificent shining beacon of freedom and liberty should not be dimmed and dulled because of an acceptable practice at the time that we have since moved past.

152 years past actually.

Speaking of the Civil War, I’ve been researching Nathan Bedford Forest for my fictionally adventurous FUN book. He’s got a small but pivotal role in it that involves Gatling guns, a train chase, and general awesomeness, because during the Civil War, he was A WAR GOD.

If Ares, the god of war, of Greek Mythology came down from Mount Olympus riding a horse named Roderick, carrying a cavalry sword (sharpened on both edges), and a pair of Colt Navy Revolvers in .36 caliber – You would have Nathan Bedford Forrest.

He’s the only person in history to go from Private to General. (Of note, he held barely any formal education, but was a self-made millionaire before the war with terrible handwriting, who raised and equipped an entire cavalry battalion on his own dime)

During a mis-communicated cavalry charge, he rode by himself into a Union Picket by accident, where he emptied his revolvers into the soldiers, drew his sword, was shot in the spine, then snatched some poor Union soldier up onto his horse as a meat shield while he rode away to keep them from shooting at him any more.

Probably while whistling Dixie.

He wasn’t called ‘Wizard of the Saddle’ for no reason.

While a slave owner who, after the war, gave this speech in 1875 .

Ladies and Gentlemen I accept the flowers as a memento of reconciliation between the white and colored races of the southern states. I accept it more particularly as it comes from a colored lady, for if there is any one on God’s earth who loves the ladies I believe it is myself. (Immense applause and laughter.) This day is a day that is proud to me, having occupied the position that I did for the past twelve years, and been misunderstood by your race. This is the first opportunity I have had during that time to say that I am your friend. I am here a representative of the southern people, one more slandered and maligned than any man in the nation.

I will say to you and to the colored race that men who bore arms and followed the flag of the Confederacy are, with very few exceptions, your friends. I have an opportunity of saying what I have always felt – that I am your friend, for my interests are your interests, and your interests are my interests. We were born on the same soil, breathe the same air, and live in the same land. Why, then, can we not live as brothers? I will say that when the war broke out I felt it my duty to stand by my people. When the time came I did the best I could, and I don’t believe I flickered. I came here with the jeers of some white people, who think that I am doing wrong. I believe that I can exert some influence, and do much to assist the people in strengthening fraternal relations, and shall do all in my power to bring about peace. It has always been my motto to elevate every man- to depress none. (Applause.) I want to elevate you to take positions in law offices, in stores, on farms, and wherever you are capable of going.

I have not said anything about politics today. I don’t propose to say anything about politics. You have a right to elect whom you please; vote for the man you think best, and I think, when that is done, that you and I are freemen. Do as you consider right and honest in electing men for office. I did not come here to make you a long speech, although invited to do so by you. I am not much of a speaker, and my business prevented me from preparing myself. I came to meet you as friends, and welcome you to the white people. I want you to come nearer to us. When I can serve you I will do so. We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment. Use your best judgment in selecting men for office and vote as you think right.

Many things have been said about me which are wrong, and which white and black persons here, who stood by me through the war, can contradict. I have been in the heat of battle when colored men, asked me to protect them. I have placed myself between them and the bullets of my men, and told them they should be kept unharmed. Go to work, be industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I’ll come to your relief. I thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for this opportunity you have afforded me to be with you, and to assure you that I am with you in heart and in hand” (Prolonged applause.)

But yeah, we should tear down this guys statue right? Because Boo-hoo-hoo?

I think we should make it at least three times bigger.

Back to the meat of this – Currently, no one in America is a slave. No one in America has owned any slaves, unless you are an Islamic immigrant – than you may have sex slaves.

So what’s your grounds for argument?

Illogical and irrational FEELINGS don’t count for squat.

This isn’t new, this idea gained a lot of moment after that window-licker with the bowl haircut shot up a black church a few years ago. There was a massive outcry against anything remotely confederate because he poised with the confederate flag in one of his pictures.

Amazon, Walmart, Ebay, and Sears all stopped selling Confederate Flags afterwards. (But at the time you could still buy ISIS Flags from Amazon. Go figure.)

The biggest thing that came out of that previous uproar was the removal of the Confederate Flag from Government Buildings.

Okay, that doesn’t bother me any. I have no issue with individuals flying it, but I don’t think we should have a defunct government’s flag flying on American government buildings. But I also didn’t particularly care if a state chose to fly it, this country was born out of resistance to the powers that be. We should never quench that spirit.

Besides, the Democrats put it up there as a protest against the Civil Rights movement anyways.

Shamey-Shamey!

Moving on…

Nancy Pelosi, ding-bat extraordinaire. Recently came out and said she wanted the Confederate Statues that she’s walked past every day since she was elected in the 1800’s to be removed because they are suddenly OFFENSIVE.

No – You are trying to capitalize on this movement to stir up your base, because without your voters energy from racial strife and intolerance towards anything different from their views – you wouldn’t have a job!

BTW – Did you know her father dedicated a statue to Stonewall Jackson and Robert E Lee back in 1948? Hahahaha.

You know who is a major Democrat force for this movement?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

You might remember her, she was ousted from the DNC after it was revealed she was swaying the DNC in Hillary’s favor over Bernie. What a statute of moral authority! She tried to rig an election against someone she disagreed with and cheater the Democrat voters from their rightful ruler and heir to the throne…Hillary.

I’m not even going to get into the IT scandal where her former staffer (who was being paid an absurd amount of money for a congressional staffer) tried to flee the country with $300,000 after having access to a lot of sketchy confidential congressional accounts.

But yes. Debbie knows best. Let’s rename the roads and tear down the monuments!

But wait!

Did you know Martin Luther King Jr was against Gay Marriage?

LOL – Try to tear down THAT statute and see what happens!

What about Robert Byrd? Longest serving Democrat Congressman? And also a well chronicled member of the KKK? Who also personally filibustered the Civil Rights Movement of 1964 for 14 hours straight to prevent it from passing?

I don’t know how much junk is named after that goon.

Let’s go deeper.

The Democrat Party, see below link about the Democratic Parties history of racism and slavery.

Inconvenient Truth about the Democratic Party

The first excuse you will hear is “The Parties SWITCHED!”  Suddenly the Republican Party is the immoral party of racism and hatred! (Someone point out THAT exact moment in time to me please.)

Because Geography matters more than Morals – and the once racist south must… obviously… ALWAYS be racist forevermore.

Okay – Watch this video for an explanation:

When did the Democratic South Become Republican

So this is stupid.

But if you want to play stupid games, I can give you a stupid prize.

I could easily make the argument that the Democrat Party should be banned on the same grounds.

They were the party of slavery.

They were the party that opposed the 14th and 15th Amendments that freed slaves and granted the right to vote.

They were the party that used the KKK as it’s military arm to intimidate and terrorize.

They voted against the Civil Rights act.

They(FDR) elected Hugo Black, a former member of the KKK, to the Supreme Court.

They(FDR) opposed de-segregating the military.

They(JFK) voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1947, opposed Martin Luther King’s 1963 march on Washington, and had him wire-tapped.

They were the ones who stood in front of an Alabama School house in 1963 declaring Segregation would never end.

They(President Woodrow Wilson) re-segregated the government in 1913.

They supported the Dred Scott decision (An enslaved man whose owners took him into ‘Free States’ and tried to sue for his freedom and was denied).

You probably didn’t know that – because Damnatio Memoraie!

So let’s put the Democrat Party in a glass case in a museum and look at them like a bug under a magnifying glass to see what went wrong and how we should prevent it in the future.

Oh – You don’t wanna play stupid games anymore?

Very well.

Some bad things happened and some bad judgements were made through out our nations history. Big deal, from what I understand the majority of those who made them are dead anyways.

If you knew anything about History – if Europe was as pathetically apologetic as some Americans are, they’d be laying prostrate, crying in the mud, for all eternity, in misery of what their ancestors have done to each other.

We men are wretched things.” – Homer from The Iliad.

That doesn’t mean we can’t move on and try to better in the future.

Which we have achieved. (For the most part)

Good, Bad… Trump’s the one with the Presidency.

If you didn’t get that reference, it’s from Army of Darkness. Watch the clip below and enjoy the awesomeness that is Bruce Campbell. It’s corny and hilarious, it was influential in my upbringing. I blame my somewhat idiotic sense of humor on it. Watch the whole movie. It will blow your mind!

Good. Bad. I’m the guy with the gun.

Ash

So Trump.

The guy is certainly far from perfect. But he’s pretty magnificent also.

I didn’t particularly want him, I would have preferred Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. Either of them would have been able to dance through the political pitfalls of the office with a savage grace as they cut government down to a fraction of it’s current size. It would have been a glorious red tape cutting ceremony of governmental death and destruction.

Shame.

But when it came down to Trump or Hillary, it was a no-brainer for my vote.

A Democrat Mafia Crime Boss with socialist leanings who is a sex crime enabler and  actively destroyed the reputation of her Impeached Serial Rapist Ex-President Husband’s victims while taking foreign donations in return for political favors run through her fraudulent Clinton Foundation as well as comprising our national security to keep her secretive and illegal doings away from the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) and not only ran a poorly secure server but also literally smashed her cell phones with a hammer so data couldn’t be retrieved, or an Egotistical Flamboyant Billionaire with a potty mouth and moderate stances who selflessly was willing to give up billions of dollars from his empire as well as subjecting himself to the unceasing assault on every aspect of his life from both the left and right to do what he viewed was best for our country and not himself.

One is full of snails and puppy dog tails and the other full of gold and spice and everything that is better than everything else.

Easy choice.

(Feel free to cut and paste that when your hear people whine about how the election was stolen by the Ruskies or swayed by Sexism.)

Don’t take this as some sort of Trump-Worship, he’s certainly not without faults. (Aren’t we all?)

At times he seems to Forest Gump his way through the blood thirsty Democrat/Never-Trumper piranhas with a sort of political naivety that is astonishing. At other times, he makes brilliant chess moves. No one is perfect. (Although in his mind he is.) But I’ll take an Ego with a penchant for putting America first than the last president with an Ego who put America last.

But not only has he been entertaining to observe, he’s been incredibly effective.

I honestly believe the man wants his face carved on Mount Rushmore.

And he probably deserves it.

But not in the way that Obama received a Nobel Peace Price. (That’s hideously ironic given what I am about to say a little further down about his wartime record.). Obama received it in a ‘I hope you will do well – here’s a famous trophy you are getting for participation that normally goes to people who actually achieve something” that the Nobel Prize Committee later said they regretted.

I’m trying to find a way to compare his historical upset over Hillary to the sitting Vice President Aaron Burr shooting the former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton in a duel back in 1804. (From what I gather Hillary’s reaction to losing that glorious fall night back in 2016 was much, much worse than being mortally wounded with a lead ball through the liver.)

But I dunno.

There is an analogy there somewhere I’m certain of it…

Anyways.

In the first eight months:

We’ve seen the stock market break record after record and soar to new highs. It’s amazing what optimism will do for a market coupled with a healthy dose of government deregulation (ALL Businesses LOVE deregulation, because regulations tend to strangle more than help). Yeah, yeah – Obama was handed a raw deal. True. But his economic policies kept it in the dumps longer than it should have, just like FDR’s New Deal programs delayed the recovery from the Great Depression. Do you remember right up to the election how the Media was screaming that the sky would fall if Trump was elected and the stock market would plummet 20% because he’s SO BAD and we would enter this horrific depression and the world would end? Instead it went UP 20%.

Which brings me to another feather in Trumps cap. He promised 2 regulations removed for every new one implemented. Last I saw that ratio is actually 16 regulations kicked to the curb for every 1 new one! This is speculated to save businesses 4 BILLION dollars. That’s $4 Billion dollars that is better spent investing and expanding, adding jobs, devising new methods, tech advancements, etc. (Que the Socialists screaming that the CEO’s will just pocket the 4 Billion while the people suffer in squalor…  Maybe they WILL pocket a big chunk of it, but so what? You think they aren’t going to spend that money on new mistresses and super cars? The money will go back into the economy and spur other businesses. See the result so far below.)

One Million new jobs added. That’s one million people who are going to work. Think of the economic boost of that. One Million more people have money to spend(thereby stimulating the rest of the economy). One Million more people are paying into the government tax system instead of taking from it. This is huge. This is magnificent. This should be celebrated.

We’ve seen ISIS on the verge of defeat, after years of Obama’s inaction as thousands were tortured, raped, and murdered by the barbaric ‘JV Team’. I suppose Obama’s Legacy was more important than Humanity, because he didn’t want to get mired down in a war caused by him not listening to our Generals and bringing back troops to early.  Jokes on you, you are the first President to be at war every single day of their Presidency. Someone should have made a War Monger medal for you. We should make it look like a giant tear drop with streaks of blood.

We’ve FINALLY seen a hard stance taken against North Korea. It’s a shame it’s taken around 60 years for a President to stop kicking that Human Rights Violating Can down the road and decide it’s time to do something(unfortunately they now have the ability to hit our homeland because we waited TO LONG!). The sanctions were a huge win, we cut their exports(income) by 2/3rds! He even got the Ruskies and Chinese on board! (BTW – The UN has ‘adopted a resolution condemning NK on Human Rights Violations’ every year since 2003. But they are to busy running guns, drugs, and child sex slave rings in third world countries to actually do something about it.) Every time I see some meme or mention about how ‘Say what you want about Obama – but under him I never worried about a NUCLEAR WAR!’ – it makes me angry. But it’s true. Because he was a gutless pansy who was to busy implementing Climate Change policies to ‘save future generations’ while he allowed North Korea and Iran get closer and closer to nukes that would wipe out millions in the present if launched.

We’ve seen 11,000 jobs cut out of the Federal Government. FINALLY! Obama added 60,000 government jobs in his first 6 months and Dub Bush added 50,000. This is a move in the right direction in cutting wasteful spending.

We are seeing finally seeing the tide of illegal immigration turning. The drastic drain on our countries social, medical, judicial, and educational system and resources is beginning to slow. We are at the lowest illegal immigration rate in 17 years, down almost 60%. That’s without a WALL! That’s by just letting the current laws actually be implemented as they should, allowing the Border Patrol to do their job, and removing the biggest driving force behind illegal immigration – free stuff. We are either a nation of Laws or a nation of Lawlessness. Trump is allowing the enforcement of Law.

He exposed the Media and Democrats for who they really are. The party of hate, lies, misconceptions, and intolerance. We’ve said it for years, that the Media is basically the left arm of the Democratic party. Now they don’t even try to act impartial. It’s a hate mongering fest of Anti-Trump 24/7. Every new leak, every new development, every misstep is broadcasted in the worst light possible and anything positive is stamped down or shoved to a back page. Anything potentially bad is rapidly disseminated without verification in hopes of over-turning his presidency with public outcry, or hoping something will actually stick so they can remove him from office, or at the least making it as difficult as possible to implement the agenda he was elected for.

He exposed the Republicans for who THEY really are. The wish-washy Elitist Club who will say anything to be elected then fail us when they have the ability to win. Nothing is more disgusting than their inability to ACT. My own party has become the back stabbing Power Crazed Clique who will protect their elitism from any outside commoner who dares to not toe the party line and hold them accountable. Majority of them are gutless and unworthy of re-election. McCain comes to mind. Grrr.

He pushed American energy independence. The XL pipeline was a start. The EPA is getting their spiteful butts kicked up and down Washington as they are finally reigned in from their over-reaching business crushing actions. He backed out of the needless Paris Accord on Climate Change, where we would have punched ourselves in the economic groin for decades while China and India get a boost on the world stage from our self-inflicted economic wounds. (Because we REALLY should just let India, a Cast-System, and China, a bunch of filthy Communists, be front and center on the world stage instead of a Democratic Republic that promotes FREEDOM and PROSPERITY)

He got Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. This is magnificent. Not only did he get a super-duper awesome Textualist. (Believes the Constitution is a binding legal document, NOT a living document that changes interpretation through the generations) He’s a big supporter of religious rights and against government-overreach. This YUGE WIN aside, Trump is also rocking the Federal Judicial Court system, with 20 plus strict conservative  judge appointments and the opportunity for upwards of 100. An unprecedented amount. Now he needs to shatter the 9th District (The Nutty 9th) and break their insane liberal stranglehold.

Held the VA Accountable. Under Obama only 13-14 people were fired after the VA scandal broke. Now over 500 have been fired and 200 suspended in the last six months. Clean the house!

He bombed Syria. Remember Obama’s Red Line? He may have been well-mannered, polished, and charismatic, but he did nothing and then the entire world knew he was a scrotum-less chump.  Our enemies were emboldened and our allies weakened. Trump did it and both parties and the world applauded him for it.  Audentes Fortuna Iuvat…. Fortune Favors the Bold.

Good stuff.

We should be reveling his achievements. That means we should be drinking, dancing, and enjoying ourselves in a rambunctious and loud manner. Yes. LETS!

But of course the Media is searching for the Russian-Collusion Boogey-Man, trying to sway popular opinions against him, and trying to dethrone a duly elected president.

There’s a party-pooper at every party.

Now – Again, he’s not without flaws and failures. I’m not a mindless drone trying to elevate Trump to a position he doesn’t deserve.

The guy trips himself up over and over again. He will do something magnificent and then ruin the momentum of it by tweeting or doing something stupid and unimportant.

I get it.

When someone says something mean about him, Trump isn’t going to lay down and take it. He’s going to swing back. And that’s a great sight to behold… sometimes. Especially after years of spineless Republicans getting battered around by the left without putting their dukes up. But a lot of times he sabotages himself as everyone around him has to go into damage control or fight the blatant media spin.

A good example is how he is handling Korea, Fire and Fury. Awesome! Then he calls out McConnell for being a worthless hack who can’t get the job done after seven years of empty talk and hints that he should resign. Sweet!

Then he fumbles Putin kicking our diplomatic staff out. Putin’s goons have been terrorizing our diplomatic staff for years now. Including killing their dogs, breaking in and intentionally leaving lights on, etc. Trumps response was moronic, “Oh thanks for cutting government jobs, I’ve been wanting to do that!”. NO NO NO. Bend Putin over and spank him. Even if that was tongue in cheap, you need to have a firm and forceful response. Don’t show weakness, they don’t respect that.

Now that response brings back up the Russia-Collusion Theory. The Media loves that baseless claim. Sheesh – It’s not like he gave 20% of our Uranium to Russia then received a bunch of Clinton Foundation Donations… Oh I know, Snopes will disagree with me. That’s because they have a blatant leftist leaning. Did you know that the Founder of Snopes has been accused of fraud, embezzlement, and prostitution? But Snopes is a bastion of truth! (They should go back to debunking internet and email chains and stay out of politics.)

BTW – Did you know that when Hillary gave that famous red button to the Ruskies when she was Sec of State, they mistranslated the word on it? It was supposed to say ‘Reset’ and instead it actually said, “Overload”.

LOL. That’s irrelevant, but funny.

Back to his tweets, the majority are actually good. They talk about what he is doing, what he wants to do, or the progress he has made. But for every hundred good tweets, the media will pick up on the one cruddy one to go mainstream with. Because they WANT everyone to think he’s a mean spirited unhinged lunatic who is dangerous to us all and we just HAVE to stop him!

So, good deeds, bad words.  I’m okay with that.

And if you ever find yourself sad or you worry that the Conservative movement is going to fail and falter under Trump… Or that those turd-burgling party-poopers are going to get him removed from office and face the WRATH of the people…

Just remember that under Obama the Democrats lost over 1,200 state and federal positions. As a party they aren’t even a National Party anymore, they are a handful of hold-out cities. Which are typically crime ridden, sky-high taxed, politically corrupt dens of hell that we only visit for the Beach, Pizza, and Monuments.

They’ve neutered themselves and now they are willing to sacrifice other organs as they continue their progressive dreams of change. (I’ll take a Kidney in the 2018 Elections please!)

As they do this I believe more people will flee the party of hate and discontent.  Kind of like how Trump and Reagan left them. That’s two Presidents you could have had in the bag!

I know. The Polls! The POLLS! They say the entire country HATES TRUMP! Lowest approval rate of all presidents! (That one had a 14% higher number of Democrats included in the sample – Go figure). Look back to the primaries, the majority of polls were wrong. Constantly.

Remember how Hillary was going to smoke-check Trump in the Election? Even though she had to cancel events because there were to few people turning out and Trump was filling stadiums and auditoriums. Hillary’s team was poppin’ bottles of champagne on their planes before a single state had recorded it’s results yet. Remember the smug look giving way to despair and angst on all the newscasters faces as the results rolled in and the realization sunk in? GLORIOUS. There were actual TEARS! And people think they are unbiased?!

Don’t trust the polls.

Every election they say, “So close! So Close! Or “Left will SMASH the right!” Kind of like every special election we’ve had this year to replace Trumps Cabinet picks, the Left is going to win. Then the Right does by usually a comfortable margin.

Polls are incredibly easy to bias. I took Statistics in college. I got a bad grade in it…. But the only thing that mattered to me was the first day of class when we were told, “Stats are never absolute or without some bias, can always change, and are easily influenced and swayed to get the desired outcome.” I think of that every time I see a Poll.

So ignore the nay-saying and wishful impeachment thinking. Instead think about all the amazing achievements that an Establishment Republican never would have had the cojones to back or implement that Trump has managed to do. They might be buried under the media narrative, but they are there, and they are grand.

Because – Good. Bad. He’s the guy with the Presidency.

Beware the Feeling Mongers!

FEELING MONGERS – Noun. “Well-meaning Do-Gooders who have poor understanding of History, Common Sense, Economics, or Human Nature. They are moved only by basic emotions and are impervious to facts.”

I created this term. It is mine now. I want a quarter every time someone repeats it.

Let me begin….

Success is generated by personal responsibility and good choices, not laziness supported by the government and funded by the others against their wishes.

Now, in the eyes of FEELING MONGERS, there is no logical reason why the unsuccessful are not successful.

So they come to the illogical conclusion that the successful must have an unfair advantage. Because Hard Work, Good Values, and Perseverance doesn’t matter. Obviously, of course, the ‘system’ must be against them.

The way they correct this, is to pass FEEL GOOD LAWS that ultimately exacerbate the problem.

The FEEL GOOD LAWS make the FEELING MONGERS feel good about themselves, even though they are actually hurting everyone involved. Both the successful people who work and have to support the funding for these laws and the unsuccessful who lose motivation to work and support themselves.

Instead of forcing the unsuccessful to push themselves towards success, they are instead shown that they can do nothing and enjoy a moderate lifestyle instead.

Before you dare scoff at ‘moderate lifestyle’, I’d like to remind you that the other day I saw a half-rack of RIBS with an ‘EBT approved’ stamp on it.

RIBS!

Did you know a 20lb bag of rice is only $8 at Walmart? That’s 57 cups of rice. That is 11,742 calories. That can feed one adult for almost 6 days. There is a reason we give truck loads of it as emergency supplies to war torn countries. Because it’s cheap and plentiful.

“Oh! But this is America! How can anyone live on that? We aren’t a war torn country!”

Have you seen Chicago or Detroit?

RIBS…

Spare me!

(LOL – Get it? Spare Ribs…AHHH I humor myself…)

In the words of Joe Rogan, “Poor people are FAT. Think about that S***!”

These people have realized they don’t need to work. They just need to play the welfare game created by the FEELING MONGERS, and they can have all the Milwaukee Beast beer, Newport cigarettes, XBox games, Flat Screen TVs, Drugs, and as many abortions or babies in Foster Care as they want.

So the welfare recipients figure, why bother? They are happy with their living standard. Their basic needs are being met by the Welfare State. Then they can spend their own money on frivolous things.

We’ve all seen these people.

They check out at Walmart in their PJ’s, grocery cart stacked full of food, a handful of rag tag poorly dressed and poorly mannered kids in tow, swiping an EBT card, then paying cash for energy drinks and tobacco and alcohol.

That EBT card?

That’s OUR money. That is OUR labor, that is OUR hours put in grinding away to create a better life for ourselves and our families. That is OUR financial future they are spending.

Next time you pay your taxes, look at the dollar that was taken from you instead of the return amount you get.

Did you know, if you made $40,000 – you paid over $5,000 in taxes? At $40,000 a year, you just gave away 33 DAYS worth of work.

You literally gave the government 33 days of your labor to redistribute as it saw fit to others.  Or almost half a year of debt free college for your kid.

Luckily, not all of your tax money/days of labor goes to welfare, most of it doesn’t. The festering boil of corruption and waste that is the Government misuses most of it. But how many FREE DAYS do you want to work so someone can not work? Five? Ten?

Now there are good people out there who hit rock bottom and need a helping hand to get back on their feet. But the majority of them, would rather ignore your helping hand and hold out their tin cup instead while they wallow in the easy lifestyle of mediocrity.

So the FEELING MONGERS create the FEEL GOOD LAWS that will keep them fed, clothed, and minimally educated. Supposedly just to ‘help them a little’. But with the myriad of laws and a system of abuse, they are able to thrive and reproduce like locusts. Consuming vital resources while creating a multi-generational problem that is passed down to their offspring.

Because when we have kids growing up in these homes, witnessing their parents(the most influential people in their lives) collecting a monthly check and being worthless – do you think they will develop a basic knowledge of hard work ethic or value of education or christian values that will help them succeed?

Yeah right.

What’s the solution?

Lower their standard of living until they are forced to work. And stop making it ‘okay’ to be on Welfare. It’s not okay. Use it and get off it.

Oh, I know – the FEELINGS. Yeah, it sucks to be embarrassed. But if most of them had any sense of dignity or pride they would have worked a way out of their current situation.

“But the DISABLED!”

Are they?

Are they truly disabled?

Or are they Jabba’s riding a Hover round through the store. Disabled because they are fat sacks of fat?

That’s not a disability.

If you’re really disabled – fine.

I’m completely okay with helping truly disabled people out. It’s not your fault you were hit by a dump truck or inherited a genetic marker or developed a disability.

That’s legit. Let’s help them out.

But if you can, you should figure out a job field where you can work. Unless you are quadriplegic and have to use a straw, you can work. Does your brain work? Good – USE IT. We have this amazing Internet thing, if you can work a keyboard – you can find employment. Even from home.

We have Veterans missing legs who are cops, we have Veterans who are missing arms and legs who are climbing Mount Everest. We have Veterans who are making all sorts of ‘disabled civilians’ look like pathetic.

(Except that Blade Runner guy without legs who competed in the Olympics then murdered his wife… That’s some Returning from Deployment Veteran stuff right there too…)

SO WHATS YOUR EXCUSE?

There is nothing wrong with taking an extra minimum wage job to make ends meet. There is nothing undignified about working and providing for yourself and your family.

There is something wrong, however, when you take a minimum wage job and demand that you be paid a living wage. No. Minimum wage jobs are temporary, that’s why they  usually have high school or college kids filling them. They are not ‘Flip Burgers and Provide for a Family’ job.

If you think you have no other options, you’re wrong. Take night classes. Keep applying for better jobs. Become a Burger Flipping Manager.

FIGURE IT OUT.

Don’t think that just because you are working an unskilled job you should be paid more than you are worth. The left screams for $15 minimum wage then acts shocked when businesses close, jobs are lost, and robots start taking my orders. This is a perfect example of FEELING MONGERS being impervious to Economics. It FEELS GOOD to make a law so people are paid more regardless of the consequences.

But you are so profoundly stupid and wrong you should be ashamed.

Here’s a dunce cap, go stand in the corner while you figure that out.

Look, I get it.

You want to feel like a good person, a good humanitarian.

That’s great, we all do.

I wanted to go to foreign countries and kill people for Freedom.

See? I’m an armed humanitarian at heart as well.

But instead I just spent a week helping with Vacation Bible School…  A dozen perpetually drunk, sex crazed, and violent Marines or a dozen per-pubescent, crazy, and wild 4th and 5th graders… I’m not sure which one is harder to handle sometimes. (I do know which one I can relate to better though…)

The point is, you mean well. And that is a noble thing to have good intentions. But you are foolish and that hurts more than it helps.

Over 50 years ago the War On Poverty began, we’ve spent $22 TRILLION dollars on it. Around 100 Million, or 1/3rd of Americans, receive some sort of support.

Right now 45 million Americans live below the poverty line, about 14.5%… the same amount as when the War on Poverty began.

Now… to be fair. Those who live in Poverty? Are they actually POOR?

80% have A/C

66% have Cable

40% have a wide screen TV

33% have more than one vehicle

2% are actually homeless

82% reported they were never hungry

That’s not poor.

You enjoy a better life than the majority of the world.

But we are PAYING for your A/C, your Cable, your TV, your extra car. Again, as Joe Rogan stated – Today poor people are FAT.

GET TO WORK and beware the FEELING MONGERS.

Bring back Jobs.

The one million jobs generated under Trump’s first six months is nothing to scoff at, that’s one million people who can either make a step up in their lifestyle or step out from under the Taxpayers expense.

Bring back Dignity.

You should be ashamed you can’t support your family. That should push you to figure out a way to. To take on multiple jobs, to make better choices, to figure things out. To be able to look at your kids and realize your suffering is worth it.

Bring back Responsibility.

I’m talking to you deadbeat Dad. Or deadbeat mom. 50 years ago the single parent household was 7%, now its over 34%. STOP BEING LOSERS. Step up. Be responsible. Make it work. Get married before you have kids. Condoms are a quarter in a gas station bathroom. Most Health Dept’s hand them out like lollipops. If your a single parent, I want my tax money to go to you. But I also want the amount of single parents to go down. Bring back Christian morals and personal responsibility.

Do the work. Push yourself. Be Responsible. Better your life and your families. Avoid debt. Make good decisions.

Then give back.

Help someone else get back on their feet. Adopt a kid. Let a guy down on his luck mow your yard. Volunteer. Buy a burger for the homeless guy. Heck, buy him a beer – This is America. He could probably use one after holding his cardboard sign out in the sun for so long.

But you can’t help anyone else until you’ve reached a point of financial stability that you can afford to.

And beware the FEELING MONGERS.

They are saboteurs of Work and Dignity with their base emotions and lack of sense.

Applaud them for their sense of humanity, the world is a rotten place after all, then talk some sense into them.

Who knows?

Maybe they’ll come to their senses.

McCain may have been a hero once, but he’s a traitor now.

McCain’s legacy won’t be a heroic act he performed 44 years ago, but the act of ultimate betrayal to millions he performed THIS year.

No surprise though, the man has always been a garbage conservative and worthy of contempt.

I held my nose and voted for him when he ran for President. Even though I really disliked him and was ticked off that the Republican Primary operates in such a way that a handful of states narrows down the playing field. So when it’s North Carolina’s turn, the only one left on the ballot is the Establishment’s Anointed One.

But apparently it was McCain’s turn to play in ’08, so they pushed a wish-washy conservative. Then it was Romney’s turn in ’12, who was also a wish-washy conservative. Because the Establishment wanted to pull in a bunch of moderate voters while ignoring their conservative base.

Good job you hacks.

You deserve being Trumped in 2016. (Who ironically, pulled in more moderates and minorities than both of them without ignoring the conservative base)

And McCain’s most recent act of betrayal to his voters, erases the multi-decade old Hero status he once had..

Why?

Because he’s a scumbag politician who says whatever it takes to be elected then reneges on what he said he would do afterwards, only to lie again for his next re-election.

During the 2016 Re-Election when he was getting battered like a pinata by his opposition, he repeatedly said he supported the Repeal of Obamacare.  There are YouTube video’s of nothing but him saying repeatedly that we needed to repeal it.  Over and over.  I guess he said it often enough that his constituents believed him and gave him another term.

“It is clear that any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, and I will continue fighting on behalf of the people of Arizona to achieve it.” – McCain

“For the first time in history a major entitlement reform was rammed through the Congress without a single vote from the other side. I fought for weeks and weeks and weeks against Obamacare. They would not allow us an amendment. There was not a single amendment allowed. No input from the minority party.” – McCain

mccain

Then when the slimy worm had the opportunity to make it good on his promise, he craw-fishes back to the Democrats side.

Hero? No, Traitor.

You stood up for your fellow servicemen for five and a half years in captivity. Refusing release without them. Even though you desperately needed medical help and were tortured and beaten in an attempt to force you to plead guilty to war crimes. That’s unbelievably impressive.

Then you abandon over a million Arizona civilians who put their hope in your false promises.

That’s contemptible. 

That’s more disgraceful and dishonorable than abandoning servicemen.

They KNEW their country would try to get them back, they knew they were expected to sacrifice and suffer for a greater good(even if drafted).

But you, you pathetic little weasel, were not only the crushing blow to a million of your own voters, but the entire country who is suffering under the medical and economic burden of Obamacare.

I guess civilians need to sacrifice and suffer so you could stay in power, right?

Did you know McCain’s state had one of the highest premium jumps in the nation at 116% this year? To bad for them I suppose.

Personally I’m surprised the Arizonians aren’t sharpening pitch forks and lighting torches.

But this is not completely unexpected, the man has always sucked at being a conservative.

I would wager money that he relished that moment. The opportunity to stab Trump in the back after those hurtful words Trump said about how he had more respect for servicemen who aren’t captured.

Because revenge is more important than the benefits of Skinny Repeal:

“The Health Care Freedom Act would have repealed Obamacare’s individual and employer mandate, provided states flexibility on Obamacare insurance regulations through waivers, increased Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution limits, repealed Obamacare’s medical device tax, and defunded Planned Parenthood for one year.” -Breitbart

You know what really bothers me? (Among a bunch of other things about him)

He has brain cancer.

He also has Congressional Healthcare, not Joe Blow Healthcare like the rest of us.

He’s not at the VA Hospital.

Because THAT is Obamacare, the VA, a prime example of Federal Run Healthcare.

You know, the one people are shooting themselves in the parking lot of. Or dying while sitting in the waiting room. With no other option except to wait and pray for help.

He’ll be just fine, taken care of with the best of Healthcare paid for by… US.

But his constituents don’t deserve better than what they have.

He’s not alone.

That Lisa Murkowski lady from Alaska, should be recalled as well for doing the same thing.  Because all she has done this year is vote AGAINST every single Obamacare Repeal/Revamp/whatever bill.  After running on a platform against it.

“This law is not affordable for anyone in Alaska. That is why I will support the bill that repeals the ACA and wipes out its harmful impacts. I can’t watch premiums for Alaskans shoot up by 30 percent or more each year, see businesses artificially constrained, or see the quality of public education decline.” – Murkowski (2016)

Seven years! 

Seven years of trying to repeal this horrific fiasco that turned out just like all these crazy right wing loons said it would.(Funny how they KEEP being right about things) Oh, all the Republicans banded together to vote for a Repeal Bill in 2015(Including Murkowski and McCain). Even though they KNEW Obama would veto it – but this way they could all come back home and say they voted against it and there was nothing they could do without the Presidency.

Ironic.

First the Republicans needed the House, we gave it to them.  Then they said they needed the Senate, we gave it to them. Then they said they needed the Presidency, we gave it to them.

And suddenly they can’t come to agreement, because it’s FOR REAL this time.

Apparently before they were playing Pretend Congress and once the ante went up they decided they didn’t want to play Real Congress.

So all those votes and bills, all those demands and requests of their voters, all the thinking and figuring and infighting…

Finally when it all comes time to poop or get off the pot…

We find out who was full of it the entire time.
