Pollsters can gussy up the figures and their assumed meanings however they wish, but for John Doe, Jane Doe and me, plain old Robert, the 2014 election results were the only weapon desperate Americans could employ to reject President Obama's policies. And to reject Obama. Too bad spineless Democrat party huggers, sheep and elected representatives didn't have the gonads during at least the final weeks to stand up and gain respect -- and perhaps re-election -- by publicly proclaiming what many of them already know darned well -- that the Obama bunch is a dangerous invasive organism, and no rational individuals want any part of a White House out of control. Instead, they avoided Obama as if his name were Ebola, silently, yet motionlessly complicit in maintaining the fantasy and the fraud.
If law enforcement officers and military members across the land weren't applauding Election Day eve's outcome to a deafening degree, I'd be surprised. Egotistical college intellectual lib professors raised on the same poop they feed students, not so much.
Welcome to the spectacularly vibrant Joni Ernst of Iowa, and say goodbye to a fading Hillary Clinton of the political junkyard -- her dinosaur bones are showing. And Jeb Bush, please go away, it's not merely you, it's the name. Surely, future phone directories shall list names other than Bush, Clinton and Obama?
Will Republicans climb off their hamster wheel to nowhere and perform some real fiscal and legislative magic with either the welcome or unwelcome assistance of Tea Party members whom, like it or not, had a lot to do with Republican gains?
New black representatives join Congress Republicans. Why are the NAACP and similar organizations not heralding this worthy accomplishment? We suspect it's because this is an alien event for those who live, die and acquire funding only while beating the drums of racism. Maybe they're busying themselves with plans to raise senseless hell in Ferguson.
Barry Goldwater, Barry Goldwater, we miss you and "they" were wrong about you, if only you could come back and see what's transpired. We had you, we let you go, and now we're left holding thin air as the environment is populated with Zuckerbergs and others who. And others who.
An executive order regarding immigration? De-fund it in January and sue, sue, sue. Funny how the presidential spokesman parrots disparage that the House didn't take up a Senate immigration bill, while the disturbing Harry Reid continues to sit on something over 300 bills regarding all manner of issues sent up by the House.
Meanwhile, over at the Federal Elections Commission, a Democrat member among three Democrats and three Republicans is just itching to put controls on political speech via Internet and other electronic media. Hardly amazing.
The president? That's King O, assuming responsibility for no national or global ills. His post-election press conference, during which he made no concessions whatsoever, portrayed him as perpetually arrogant, consumed by bags full of self-interest and, all things considered, Obama appeared before the cameras and microphones as a selfish child intent upon doing as he wishes, and screw everybody standing in his way. Hmm -- rather like the fawning mainstream media members who clamped on and butt-kissed his agenda since day one. One wonders just exactly how many copies of Rules for Radicals float around Washington as guidebooks for so-called official business and media relations.
Methinks that gaggle of rumored White House psychologists who work diligently at ways to keep the Democrat vote amongst national brainpower might instead focus their attention upon a president who apparently fails to properly realize how thoroughly spiflicated his policies were on Election Day. I'm tellin' ya, if this man continues to live in his university intellectual world of conjecture, and not America's world of gritty reality and real needs, day will come when EMTs visit Pennsylvania Avenue with a straitjacket. Hmm, better make that several.
What a coincidence, more troops announced for deployment to Iraq after the elections. This, from a president who pulled us out of Iraq much too soon, leaving perhaps forever incapable Iraqi troops in charge to save themselves. As numbers of "advisers" increase, I harken back to the Vietnam years and military draft with which I was all too familiar.
New nominee for the soon-to-be blessedly vacant Attorney General position: No thrills here. Ms. Lynch (um, are we still allowed to say that word?) has a record which, so far, portrays her as little more than Eric Holder in female attire. Chosen, of course, by the most racist president in memory. Good going, Mr. O. Now let's see if they can wait until the new Congress takes over to either confirm or deny her the job. Her position on immigration alone may not endear her to reps looking for decisions in America's best interest. Lynch's comment about serving "all" Americans just tickles my funny bone to a scream, especially in light of Holder's peculiar journey as AG to Ferguson, sympathizing and bonding with professional street protestors to whom he reveals that he, too, is a black man. Wha. . .?
Speaking of AG Holder, that must have been quite a paper avalanche when his department finally got around to releasing nearly 65,000 pages of documents relating to the "Fast and Furious" affair -- and even that tidy amount is only a small portion of documents demanded by the congressional committee investigating this sordid issue.
Neither fast nor furious was the release at last of a U.S. Marine from a Mexican prison, where he endured threats and beatings. If life were perfect, no U.S. citizen would visit or vacation in Mexico for the next decade, sending a message to a corrupt government which cares little about the U.S. except to send unwanted, unskilled and just plain ignorant people here to consume our resources and assist in weakening a country built originally by immigrants with essential talents and personal resourcefulness. Continuing illegal immigration merely dumbs down a nation already strangled by massive human incursion, assisted by political traitors who rightly deserve prison cell occupation for a long, long time.
So when should charges regarding criminally negligent deaths reach the White House? Remember, the Obama folks knew months in advance that "children" and the like were coming here from Central America. Of course they knew -- there were ads placed for caretakers through government channels. What did we get, in addition to a continuing wave of thousands of illegals dumping their butts across our border? We seem to have received an uptake in tuberculosis cases -- and even more outrageous, an enterovirus which not only paralyzes American children, but can apparently kill them as well. Surely, these diseases can be checked to determine if their tracers lead back to Central America, but I'm not sure this has been done (probably not). It's simply too damned coincidental that these eruptions have no relationship to foreign border-busters whom we know already are giving us a big shout-out with diseases and head lice.
If we can successfully entertain and treat Ebola, we can handle anything. Well, yeah, that's the opinion of some, but as an ignored American , just like you, I have to say that I worked in the medical field just long enough to have a very bold respect for diseases, particularly those which mutate at the drop of a
fruit bat. Despite all this talk
on "Sixty Minutes" this week by and about medical personnel who
courageously step in to attempt to curtail Ebola, I have much sympathy for the
poor medically-educated sonsofbitches who want nothing to do with this disease,
but are forced to endure the risk by virtue of superiors who threaten them with
their very jobs. I can't BUT sound harsh
when I say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and what happens in Africa
should stay in Africa -- oops, almost forgot, the Chinese are grabbing up
African resources, and the U.S. isn't about to let 'em go whole-hog, so. . .now
I get it. . .
Two Americans were released by North Korea this weekend, and despite comments otherwise, I'll continue to wonder how much it cost us THIS time. For Pete's sake, can't you folks who just itch to travel the globe stay away, far away, from North Korea??!! Every time, this costs us something considerable for a solution, mostly stuck in secrecy mire so we will never know enough to become appropriately pissed. Now, I don't know about the older guy, but the other, Mr. Miller, I believe -- those videos, those photos -- how come his eyelids appear to be tinted with blue or dark eye shadow? Why isn't he talking? Was he a spy? And since he tore up his papers, demanding asylum in North Korea, why didn't we just leave him there? If a feller believes life in North Korea's going to be a jewel compared to the daily grind in America, certainly the NK folks could accommodate him? I don't know, maybe that's something the United States could pay for, just to allow the boy to continue his life-long communist prison fantasy. Any prison time has to beat those awful haircuts. . .
Hack it up: Within the past three days we've heard of assumed Chinese thugs hacking into the U.S. Postal Service computers, and the Russians gaining access to the U.S. energy grid (!!!). Surely, advancing technology is always our friend, yes?
Pillar this, pillar that: It seems disturbing that there's an interest in teaching school kids about Islam lately. I watched a televised high school quiz show this weekend and there was a question regarding the five pillars of Islam. Well, I don't know exactly what that means, but let me try to sort out what I believe these pillars might represent, in consideration of the 9/11 bunch, etc.:
Pillar 1: Intolerance of other religions.
Pillar 2: Beheadings and other forms of murder.
Pillar 3: Pedophila and underage marriage.
Pillar 4: Always cover women from head to toe and treat them like livestock.
Pillar 5: Even stupid and pathetic men of Islam can feel superior when they treat women who are more intelligent than themselves as brainless.
I hope I got that.
Republicans step in it again. There's a clear faction among Republicans who live for nothing but the end of abortions and the power to "lord over" birth control and a woman's right to choose. For all the things I like about conservatives, this little self-righteous gem drives me bonkers. Will you folks please stay out of the bedroom? There are already enough future intellectual morons being conceived between sweaty sheets every night of the week, and I promise -- as long as humans walk the planet, we'll never run out. So -- no religiously-driven bedroom invasions and definitely no Shariah Law, and maybe we'll all find some contentment.
Oh, and just one more thing: Automobile manufacturers and government, please, go back! Start making vehicles easier to produce, repair and manage. Just because electronic marvels impress, that doesn't mean we should continue making cars more technically complicated and expensive. Bells and whistles of amazement won't count for anything if a dreaded EMP takes a split-second to catastrophically destroy each and every proudly manufactured electronic "breakthrough" under the hood. Trust me, AAA won't be coming to save you. . . and. . .and you won't be able to call them, anyway.
HAPPY VETERANS DAY, AND THANKS PARTICULARLY TO THOSE VETS WHO ENDURED THE EXTRAORDINARY AND SACRIFICED SO MUCH ON FIELDS OF BATTLE (and I haven't forgotten you folks involved with Rendlesham and other UFO-related military incidents, either, because your stories have yet to be told officially, and the very concept of "closure" for you is something else again).
