CNN Republican Debate

Posted by Troy on 15th December 2015 in Current Events, Political

Not a huge fan of the CNN debate.  I felt like they gave Cruz and Rubio way too much time, and this prevented others from showcasing themselves.  Also, the question, “So you’re for thousands of dead Syrian kids,” was a bit much.  I mean… seriously, guys…

Trump – I think that Trump may have finally shot himself in the foot.  Saying that he would go after the ISIS families is a bit much.  I mean, it’s effective.  It’s the Total War approach that Sherman used against the South.  In all honesty, its the only thing that might work…or lead to a true religious war ending with the extermination of one group or the other.  The statement though, does make him look unhinged.  It’s a shame because he said some good stuff too.  Such as: We either have a country or we don’t.  If we have one, we have to enforce our borders.  Anyone here illegally, gets shipped out.  Yep, true true.

Cruz – I think he was the big winner tonight.  He didn’t say anything stupid and made a few good points.  He also avoided picking fights with the conservative candidates (although he did go after a few of the Establishment ones).

Rubio – I think that he is going to be the Establishment candidate.  So, here’s the take-away for the night: he is pro-pathway to citizenship [he does say that the border must be secured and legal immigration system fixed, and then we'd look at the people who were already here...but let's be honest, that's not he the way it would actually go down], he is pro military adventurism in the Middle East, and he is pro-spying on American citizens.  Needless to say, I can’t support him.

Carson – He had a pretty good night.  I don’t know if he will move up, but he is calm and measured.  What he said made a lot of sense too.  I don’t like the moment of silence at the beginning of his night.  It screams of “I don’t have anything to say,”/time eating.  I know that’s not the case, but that’s how it kinda reads.  I thought he did a good job of arguing that you don’t have to scream to be tough.

Fiorina – Man, she is so reasoned and calm.  Shame she blends into the background so much.  In particular, after debates, she just disappears.  She doesn’t have a good promotion team.  However, the lady understands messaging.  I have to give her that.  Shame CNN focused so much of their time on Cruz and Rubio.

Rand Paul – He was one hundred percent correct on everything.  We are moving away from the Constitution.  Our debt is our biggest national security weakness.  Several people up there either don’t understand what they are saying or don’t truly believe what they say.  It is a shame that he doesn’t have a more outstanding personality.  Still a big fan of his, but he cannot win the nomination.

Christie – He is someone that sounds good if you don’t know who he really is.  Although, I really enjoyed Rand Paul taking him down over the no-fly zone.  Oh, if looks could kill…

Kasich – Everybody was kung-fu fighting…have you ever noticed how much he moves his hands when he talks?  He did make some good point during the night, but I honestly cannot say what it was.  It seems his entire campaign strategy is, “Look, I can give you Ohio.”  I don’t know why he doesn’t dropout.

Bush – Did anyone else catch the Kermit the Frog impression?  ha ha ha.  He’s got nothing.  He actually did stand up to Trump this time, but it’s too little, too late.  He has zero credibility.  The sad thing is that he lost his credibility by not being able to go toe to toe with Trump previously.  Now, he’s trying to regain it by going after him constantly.  Unfortunately for him, it just makes him look rude and annoying.

Long Live the Constitution!

People on the Terror Watch List Should Be Able to Buy Guns

Posted by Troy on 3rd December 2015 in Current Events, Political

The Democrats are talking about how they need to close the Terror Watch loophole.  This sounds like something that is so common sense on the surface.  Why would you want people that are on the Terror Watch List to be able to buy guns?  The reason is: because they can put ANYBODY on the list.  They just have to come up with a criteria.  Bear in mind, these are the same people that wanted to put veterans and people that demand adherence to the Constitution on the domestic terrorism list.  Based on that, I’d be rather heartbroken if I WASN’T on the list already.

I remember when Bush came up with the Terror Watch List.  The Liberals cried their eyes out about how people on this list have no way to see the evidence against them and no way to clear their name.  Now they want to take away a Constitutional right.

Hell, based on that logic, let’s take away other rights too if the government decides to put you on the list of people that do not deserve Constitutional rights.  Why let these supposed terrorists have freedom of speech?  Why let them vote?  Why allow them to be Muslim…since Islam does seem to be something to keep out of the hands of some people.  Ooo, let’s deny them the right to vote.  If your viewpoints are different than those in power, you could end up being a terrorist, after all.   We don’t want terrorist voting, do we?  Do they need a right to a trial?  What about slavery?  Ooooo, can we use political dissents as slaves?  Neat!  Hell, let’s just save the trouble and round them up for re-education/extermination camps.

Do you get it now?

Long Live the Constitution!

San Bernardino Shooting

Posted by Troy on 2nd December 2015 in Current Events

Well, it took the Democratic candidates about ten seconds to blame the San Bernardino shootings on the NRA and lax gun laws.  Of course…I mean, this was San Bernardino.  Not Georgia or Texas or Montana or something…but whatever, sure…it’s gun laws.

So we all had to sit there and watch for hours while the media and people tried not to say the obvious…that this is Islamic terrorism.  Of course it’s terrorism.  You have an attack very similar to what happened in Paris with no motivation other than the slaughter of defenseless people.  But we can’t say it’s Muslim Terrorists…that would be stereotyping.  Let’s be honest…in an act of terror against random, defenseless people…bet Muslim.  It’s a safe bet.

I am looking forward to Obama’s speech.  I think it will go something like this:

“Now, let’s not rush to judgement.  We should not demean an entire religion for the acts of a few people.  Islam is a religion of peace, and anyone that kills innocent people is not a true Muslim.  That being said, let’s demean all guns because they were the tool of choice for some false-Muslims to kill innocent people.  The only way for us to be safe is to ban all guns and get the Syrian refugees over IMMEDIATELY!”

Long Live the Constitution!
