Idealism Verses Experience

There are those who get into government with real business or military experience.  Then there are those who bring nothing but their idealism into government and try to use the government to run the nations businesses.  Do I really need to explain which party is which?

By the way, I might mention, most of these idealists never worked a day in their life outsied of politics or volunteer projects.  They don’t really have the slightest idea what makes things work.

Unintended Consequences

Whenever you try to fix a problem, you stand in danger of creating others.  When they passed a law to allow people to seek asylem, they fixed a problem.  Now they have a bigger problem.

They need to revisit the law and repair it or our national language will be Spanish. If in doubt, consider that there are some places in this country where Spanish is more common than English.  Guess what?  It is spreading quickly.

BUILD THE WALL!

The Dems Secret to Success

Some may wonder how it was that the Dummycrats had so much success in the last electition.  It’s simple.

One, they pretend to be Republicans.  It is sot of like wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Also, they tell a few lies.  The process comes easy to them.   They are well practiced at it.  By the way, after they win, they go back to owing their alegence to the dummycrats.

Two, they cheat.  They have taken the saying seriously, “He who counts the votes wins the election.”

Three, the roten news media throws their two cents in, maybe a little more.  After all, they are as much a part of the dummcrat party as the politions are.  If the republicans were to win, they would cry as much or more than their candidates.

Finally, they claim that the election was unfair.  After all, shouldn’t we count the votes of those in prison and the illegal aliens?  Then there are those who had to take the time to cross state lines.  …and, of course, we can’t forget to count the votes of the dearly departed.  Why should their death get in the way?

I guess I should add just one more.  Some people are easily deceived.  Indeed, some lazy people like getting freebees at the expense of others.

 

Side note:  I spent a few days in the hospital.  I’m just letting you know why I haven’t written for a while.

 

 

CNN’s Jim Acosta

I wonder if Jim Acosta even realized what he did.  I saw the thing thing live and I am convinced that he did touch the intern slightly.  That should have never happen.  I am sure he never hurt her but it did likely cause her some fear.  The woman was trying to do her job and he put her in a bad position.  Moreover, he obviously had no respect for the woman.

At the time, he thought of no one but himself.  He wasn’t even thinking of CNN as he caused them a great deal of embarrassment.  He certainly wasn’t thinking of the public as he didn’t even ask a question, but rather made an accusation.  By the way, it was a very poor one.  People who force their way into a country are evaders by definition.  By the way, if they start throwing rocks, they become armed invaders and are guilty of assault.  For this, it would be proper to lock them up and charge them with assault.

I do believe the proper thing for President Trump to do would have been to tell the man apologize or leave.  If he refused, he should have been escorted out.  Then he should have reminded the others that the same thing could happen to them if they insist to speak out of turn.  Even a third grader knows better.

Somehow, Acosta will likely regret his actions.  He won’t be attending any presidential press conferences for a while.  Maybe never.  He might remain at CNN, but he will have to find another job.

A Little Thought

I wished I could say I thought of it but I didn’t.  It was on CBS’s Seal Team.  Loosely quoted, it is corruption and indifference are powerful allies.  Although I certainly agree, I would add two words.  Corruption and indifference are powerful and dangerous allies.

Let’s all remember to vote.  If we don’t, we will most certainly face corruption and likely lose the precious right to vote.  Even the smallest vote is important, even for the proverbial dog catcher.  In some ways, the small contest is even more important.  The smaller the number of voters, the more that your vote counts.

However, even in the big elections, you vote counts.  Think of it.  according to Clinton, President Trump lost based on popular vote.  A few more votes for Trump and they would not have that argument.  Moreover, every vote sends a signal, a mandate.  Had president Trump won by ten million, we just might have our wall now and maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to pay 1000 dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.  Because he lacked the large margin, he lacked the political capital.  He even had to face republicans, of all things.

To be sure, there were three major reasons that President Trump won the election: taxes, the wall (as well as immigration), Iran and the globalists.  Under the heading of globalists, we can include, the Paris accord the TPP.  May I remind one and all, any time we enter a treaty, that treaty exceeds our constitution.  For that reason alone, all treaties should be entered with great care.  In these treaties, the US would be giving up a much of our sovereignty and we would gain nothing.  It would have been a big step toward one world government.  That might be good, but for one thing.  That government would likely be run by very corrupt people, as the UN is today.

Remember, a vote for a dem is a vote for globalism, more regulation and less freedom.  It is not just important to beat them at the ballot box, but we must send them a message that we don’t like a government that takes our money, gives it to the like of Iran and then tells us what to think.
