First Debate Results

Posted by Troy on 26th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

The first half, Donald destroyed Hillary.  If it was a boxing match, she would have been up against the ropes and he was just pummeling her.  And then the moderator came to her rescue.  Why was Donald Trump’s tax return and the whole birth certificate brought up?  Gee, shall we talk about the debt?  Shall we talk about Obamacare?  Shall we talk about the border?  Should we talk about anything that actually matters?  Nah…let’s talk about a one-sided issue which will either be a non-issue or hurt one of the candidates.  And the media bias continues.  Needless to say, once it became two on one, Hillary’s performance improved.  You could see the relief in her face to have the comfort of her familiar ally, the media, ride to her rescue.

That being said, she lost.  Trump didn’t come across as a mad man or a hateful man.  He sounded like someone who was mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore.  That’s how most of us are.  We are mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore.  Nothing is ever going to change until enough of us finally get up, stick our head out the windows, and scream “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

That’s why she lost.  In order for Trump to have lost, he needed to look inept or unhinged.  He didn’t, but she looked as incompetent and crooked as she actually is.  She looked as boring as she really is.

I predict the media will tout that Clinton won, that she had a masterful performance…and Trump will continue to rise in the polls.

Long Live the Constitution!

Conservatives are Stupid

Posted by Troy on 14th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

After listening all day to “Conservatives” trashing Trump over his child-care plan, I came to a realization:

Conservatives are stupid.

Here’s the fact of the matter.  I will agree that setting up Federal maternity leave is problematic.  The reason is because is sets up another form of entitlement.  Even if good limitations are set in place, future Democrat legislatures will aim to triple the amount of the maternity pay or triple the time allowed, or whatever.  That is true and undeniable.

However, what is also true and undeniable is: Trump is waaaaay better than Hillary.  Period.  End of discussion.  You will NEVER hear liberals trash Hillary on ANYTHING.  The e-mails, the lying, the Foundation…she is excused at every turn.  Meanwhile, the Conservatives actively tear down their candidate.

This is Trump’s plan.  However, he will be President, not emperor.  He cannot put this into place via executive order.  If you disagree with his plans, urge your Congressmen and Senators to defeat the measures you disagree with, but remember who the true enemy is.  Remember who will put another Liberal judge on the stand.  Remember who will kill the 2nd Amendment.  Remember that she is going to raise taxes and spending more than you could possible dream.

So, to Conservatives, I remind you: say, “I disagree with this policy,” and then go back to destroying Hillary.

Long Live the Constitution!

Trump is Eating Hillary’s Lunch

Posted by Troy on 13th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

He rolled out his child-care plan.  Wow.  Fantastic.  A great boon to parents, who are a large voting block.  Of course, the Left went nuts.  Trump wasn’t supposed to do this, and so they talked about how this will tick off Republicans.  Amazing…instead of applauding the plan, they are saying that their opposition will hate the plan.  We are in weird times.  Let’s go through this.

1 – There will be a new deduction for parents for the average cost of child care.  How is a tax deduction not a Republican idea?  Great idea.  Fantastic, really.

2 – They will create savings accounts for medical expenses.  When the child turns eighteen, the amount put into this account can be used for higher education.  How is encouraging savings not a Republican idea?

3 – They will allow the deduction for elderly care expenses.  Again…deduction.

4 – They will have paid maternity leave, done through Unemployment Insurance.  Now, this one is a bit iffy on the Republican thing, but you can easily just cut the amount of time allowed to be on Unemployment from 99 weeks down to 12 weeks, and we’re done.  That easily pays for this part of it.

You can tell how scared the Left is because none of them covered this speech, and as of the writing of this blog, there is pretty much nothing on MSN.com and some other such sites.  Hillary should be scared.  She has demonized 20% of Americans.  In fairness, I believe she holds a full 50-70% of us in disdain.  All she can do is talk bad about Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump is running all over the place.  Giving big speeches and holding big rallies.  He beat her to Louisiana.  He beat her to Mexico.  He beat her to this.  He will beat her to the next thing.  And what does she have to offer?  He talks of unity and a brighter future.  She talks about more of the same and how terrible things will be if Trump wins.  She can’t say how wonderful things will be under her because things will stay the exact same.

I predicted last year that Trump would beat Hillary because:

1 – He’s energetic.  She looks tired and old.

2 – He speaks of patriotism and optimism that the future will get better.  She’s doom and gloom.

3 - He’s fun, dynamic, and interesting.  She is so boring, and when she’s not boring, she’s shrill.

And now it begins.  The media has been on prevent defense since May.  They have been carrying her water.  They have been trying to generate enthusiasm for her and shame for Trump.  They demonize Trump at every turn.  They take everything he says out of context of blows it out of proportion.  Meanwhile, Hillary is protected and advanced.

And even with all this, she is slipping in the polls.  This slippage will not stop.  It will continue.  The more you see of Hillary, the less you like her.  The more you see of Trump, the more you realize the media is utterly bias.

Long Live the Constitution!

Hillary Doubles Down On Basket of Deplorables

Posted by Troy on 12th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

Hillary and her surrogates are saying that Hillary is only wrong by the amount.  Apparently, 50% is too strong.  Okay… instead of 20% of Americans being irredeemable reprobates (roughly 64 million), how many Americans are pieces of shit then, in Her Majesty’s estimation?  A mere twenty million, perhaps?  Shall we exterminate these vermin, My Leader?

Trump: Generals Have Been Reduced to Rubble

Posted by Troy on 8th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

Trump is coming under fire for this remark.  I don’t see how.  Let’s look at the facts: sequester has cut the military budget tremendously.  We do not have the funds for necessary repairs and the military has resorted to salvage to keep planes going (etc).  This sounds like a military in decline.  Now, as for the Generals: not all Generals are made the same.  I’d put Patton or Washington or Lee up against any of the modern day generals under the Obama administration.  Interestingly enough, generals that didn’t get in line with the Obama administration got gone fast.  The ones that are left are a bunch of sycophant yes-men, picked for their ability to justify the king’s fancy.  Nothing that we have been doing has made any sense.

I don’t believe that Trump has more knowledge about ISIS.  That would be almost impossible.  But he probably does believe he has a better understanding of ISIS because, from the outside looking in, the way we have been fighting them is just asinine (such as dropping warnings that we were about to bomb their positions).  Trump probably does think that he could devise a better way to fight them based on these insanities.

In regards to Trump’s plan:  Maybe there is no plan, but it equally likely that he has a STRATEGY in mind but will still need military minds to take that strategy and formulate a plan of execution.  This is actually the way that a military is supposed to work.  The commander (the President) makes goals, the military leaders develop ways to accomplish those goals, and the soldiers (etc) make it happen.

Long Live the Constitution!

Trump and Putin

Posted by Troy on 8th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

Trump is coming under fire for complimenting Putin.  As Matt Lauer pointed out all that Putin has done in undermining US interest, grabbing the Crimea, etc.  To which I have to say: doesn’t this prove Trump’s point?  Putin has gotten all this without Obama being able to counter him effectively in any way.  Currently, Russia has a strong leader and we have a weak one.  Anyone being honest has to agree with this.  Can you name one of our traditional enemies which are currently in retreat from the world stage?  They are all advancing and working against our interest.  That has been the history of the last 8 years.

Long Live the Constitution!

Ya know, Matt Lauer did a pretty good job.  Trump easily won the night.  Hillary spoke so slowly and rambled.  She choose her words ever so carefully in regards to the emails.  This is the sign of someone that is doing their best not to lie while not really telling the truth.  She came off as unbelievable.  She also spent the vast bulk of her time talking bad about Trump, when she agreed not to do so at the start.  This means that the only thing she really brings to the table is “I’m not Trump.”  It’s very hard to win if all you can run on is that you are not the other person.  Trump, on the other hand, gave clear, concise answers.  He came across as confident and reserved.  He also spoke a lot more about his policies than Hillary did.

Colin Kaepernick Not Standing for the Anthem

Posted by Troy on 30th August 2016 in Current Events

This has been compared to the runners who raised their black fists during the Olympics, and etc etc.

Personally, I find these types of display - hollow.  Let’s take the Olympics example.  They got to go to the Olympics under the flag.  They then won a little fame and money by running under that flag.  I notice their outrage didn’t extend to their winnings.  They seemed to have no moral compulsion against accepting the money won under that flag.  All of these “protests” are hollow examples.  They don’t make any actual sacrifice (except for Ali, who went to jail and gave up his title–mad respect there).

I’d have a lot more respect for Colin if he gave up his lucrative job to become a police officer and patrol the street and work his way up the chain and really make a difference.  However, he won’t do that for a variety of reasons, but even if he had the strength of character to do so, he’d learn something: there’s a reason why things are the way things are, and if he went to one of these oppressive cities and became a cop, within a few years, he would act exactly the same as the average cop.  I challenge anyone that wants to talk about the “racist” cops to go out there and be a cop for two years, and then re-examine your attitudes.

I personally believe that Kaepernick knows that he is on the way out.  He is trying to either make a name for himself or make it so he can say it was political if he was fired.  Amazingly, he didn’t have these strong views when he was doing well and it could jeopardize his money.

Here’s the thing.  He doesn’t have to stand for the anthem.  That’s totally his right.  If he wants to do that, that’s fine.  However, the rest of us also have the right to think ill of him.  Hell, we have the right to flat out hate his guts for it if we want to (not beat him up over it or anything like that, but yeah).  We also have a right not to associate ourselves with him or a team that would employ his services.  All of these things are correct.

If you disagree with me, consider this: what if Colin Kaepernick came out advocating for pedophiles to be able to date thirteen-year-olds.  Not actually doing it.  Nothing illegal.  Just making that stated opinion.  Would you have a strong opinion on that?  If the 49ers continued to pay him, might you decide not to watch 49er games?  I could come up with a list of other examples of things that people are free to believe that would make you abhor this man.  There is no difference.  I may choose not to associate with someone that hates the country that I love–the same as I might choose not to associate with someone who hates the woman I love.  Same difference.

Long Live the Constitution!

What have you got to lose?

Posted by Troy on 25th August 2016 in Political

Trump posed this question to blacks.  Democrats have been using them for votes for over half a century, and blacks have gotten nothing in return for their voter loyalty.  They have high rates of poverty, high rates of unemployment, terrible housing, and so on and so on…so what do they have to lose.  To which, Democrats decried the remark as racist.

Well, they have one thing to lose.  If they feel the need to vote for Democrat, it is because they are afraid that they will lose their means, their income, their government programs.  So, loyalty is based upon the necessities of life…food, water, and housing.  What does that sound like to you?

Slavery.

I don’t know how else to view it.  Slaves lived on the plantation and did what they were told.  Why?  Because it was their means to eat.  Also they could be punished (possibly killed).  But plenty of slaves were afraid when slavery ended because they didn’t know how they were going to support themselves (read.  It’s not all 7 years a slave.  I am in no way defending slavery.  Slavery is the antithesis of free market capitalism because laborers are not able to negotiate with their employers or change employers at will.  I am against any form of fascism, which is what slavery basically is).

So, the idea that the welfare state, the Democratic plantation, could end is terrifying to some–especially since Democrats have more or less destroyed the black family.  There were more intact families under slavery than there are under the welfare state.

Obama, Kneeling before Iran

Posted by Troy on 24th August 2016 in Current Events, Political

It is obvious, at this point, that Obama was willing to do anything to “achieve an Iran deal.”  I’m not entirely sure what kind of achievement this is…

Let’s just look at the facts:

1 – We made nuclear deal that pretty much just legitimizes what the Iranians were doing anyway.

2 – We gave them 400 million dollars.

3 – Realizing that he would look like a total douche if he gave away 400 million while they held prisoners, he demanded the prisoner release be made in conjunction with the money transfer, turning it into a ransom situation.  We have seen an increase in American kidnappings since this deal.

4 – Afterwards, we gave Iran $1.3 billion dollars.  This was paid in 13 payments of $99,999,999.99.  In other words, if they had paid 100 million dollars, he probably would have had to tell Congress about it.

5 – Realizing that the US is a joke, Iran has been talking trash and have been buzzing our ships with their little row boats.  Obama can’t make a fuss about anything because “Hey, I harbored in a new period of cooperation with Iran.”  Iran has also been pretty much ignoring all the rules set out I his precious “Iran Deal.”

So, in summary: Iran got a bunch of money, economic sanctions lifted, and increase prestige on the world stage, and we got nothing.  Worse than that, we paid handsomely.  Well…at least we got the 4 Americans back.  We did get that.

Here’s how a strong leader would have done things.  “We are willing to negotiate on the sanctions.  Release the prisoners first, and then we can see about working out our differences.”  The prisoner release should have been the precondition to the negotiations, not as a final demand to prevent Obama from looking like the weak, feckless President that he is.

Long Live the Constitution.
