What I hope Trump teaches liberals

Posted by Troy on 26th January 2017 in Uncategorized

Harry Reid got rid of the filibuster because the Republicans got in the way of Obama’s dream.  Now that Trump is President, they decry the lack of the filibuster and want to bring it back.

When President Obama signed executive order after executive order, liberals cheered and defended it because Republicans were getting in the way of Obama’s dream.  Now that Trump is in charge and signing executive order after executive over, they are going nuts with worry and scorn.

Finally, liberals talk about how Trump is Hitler.  Trump will NEVER be Hitler.  Know why?  because Hitler got rid of the guns first.  As long as the Second Amendment stands, there can never be a Hitler in America.

In short, I hope that Trump’s Presidency teaches liberals the wisdom of the Founding Fathers.  There was a reason why they made the system to prevent sweeping change.  There was a reason why the Constitution is concerned with what the government cannot do to you.  There’s a reason why the the Constitution is a document restraining governmental power and protecting the individual’s rights.  It does not empower government.  It restricts government.  It doesn’t tell you what the government will do FOR you, it tells you what the government CAN’T to do to you.

I doubt that they will learn these lessons, but I hope these are the lessons liberals take away from the Trump presidency.  It’s a vain hope, but it’s a hope.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I want Trump to Win

Posted by Troy on 26th October 2016 in Uncategorized

Amy Schumer shamed a Trump supporter on stage for not being able to say why he was voting for Trump.  She didn’t accept, “Hillary’s a felon” as a valid reason.  Of course, you are supposed to have a reason to be FOR a candidate than just be opposed to another.  Although, I truly hazard that no Hillary supporter could actually give you a real reason past some vague, “First woman president… she’d make women equal… something something…dark side…something something…complete.”  But I will play her game.

First, I don’t believe the allegations.  I have my reason for not believing the allocations, but let’s just baseline that.  However, even if true, the other option is Bill Clinton that most definitely abused women.  I also truly believe he raped a woman based on her testimony.  You can say “That was Bill, not Hillary,” but let me ask you…If your husband raped a woman, would you DESTROY the woman he raped?  Hillary did.  So she’s kinda one step below dog shit in my book.

Here’s the thing: I believe Trump loves America.  His entire life he has spoken with great love of the country and great anger at the foolishness of our leaders.  This has not changed.  I also believe that he is a deal maker.  I believe that he will bring sides together, try to work out a deal where the main goal is accomplished, but where both parties can walk away satisfied (this is the heart of commerce, of which he has been a part of his entire life).  Also, I love the man’s energy and dogged determination.  Anyone else would have rolled over and died by now, but he just keeps fighting and fighting.  I guarantee you, if Hillary did his schedule, she’d drop dead.  I believe that Trump can win people over with his ideas and with the fact that he will actually work to broker deals which are mutually beneficial which, hopefully, will move our country back on the right path.

Here’s the other thing: Hillary will NEVER unify us.  She cannot win people over.  She has trashed: Trump supporters, rednecks, Bernie supporters, Catholics, Latinos, Blacks, and a whole host of other groups in these emails.  She flat hates at least 60% of this country.  As such, she cannot be a leader.  She will have to be a commander.  She will not view us as a nation to be unified.  She will view us as different types of livestock to be pitted against one another to accomplish her goals.  If she wins, she will come into office hating 60% of us and 40% of us hating her.  And there is nothing she can do to change their minds.  She is a proven liar and the most unlikeable person to ever run for office.

This is the contrast between the two candidates, and this is why I want Trump to win.

Long Live the Constitution!

Posted by Troy on 9th October 2016 in Uncategorized

No more…Mr. Nice Guy…No more…Mr. cl-he-hean!

#ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#boom!

Oh my God.  Someone cut the Donald LOOSE!!!!!

Trump brought the truth tonight.  He was slamming her over and over and over again.  The debate moderators tried to save her…tried to attack him.  There were so many one-side “questions,” which were only meant to hurt Trump and had absolutely NO basis in what’s actually important for the country.  The ENTIRE 90 minutes, was Trump DESTROYING her against all of these obstacles.  HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOOM!

Long Live the Constitution!

Fox News Republican Debate

Posted by Troy on 28th January 2016 in Uncategorized

Without a doubt, this was the best debate.  It was nice to focus on the policy without the moderators making everything all about Trump.

Donald Trump – Turns out he was the big winner of the night.  Assuming that he maintains the support of 1/3rd of the people,   His followers are very loyal, so it is going to be hard for someone to take support away from him.  The big worry tonight was that Cruz would make use of Trump’s absence to demolish him.  Instead, Ted overplayed his hand and fell flat.  The only danger of the night resolved, Trump won.

Ted Cruz – He had a golden opportunity, and started off well.  But then he started complaining about how everyone was out to get him.  He came across as whiney and weak.  He attempted to turn it into a joke at Trump’s expense, and it fell flat.  This is very much like Jeb’s demand for Trump’s apology.  I don’t think it’s fatal, but it ruined what could have been a very good night.  He made a very good recovery on the immigration question.  He did a good job on ethanol in a state that makes a lot of money on ethanol.

Marco Rubio – Good showing for the Senator.  He came across as positive and earnest.  Rand savaged him early.  Rand is Rubio’s counterpoint.  Liberty vs Security.  And like all such discussions, it turns out that security is merely an illusion and falls apart when Liberty is talking.  He does a good job of trying to deny he supported amnesty considering how many clips show that he pretty much supports amnesty.  He is doing a good job of brining energy to his message.  That’s going to help him.

Ben Carson – Fantastic opening for Ben Carson.  He is speaking with a resolute tone of voice, and his message of Truth resonates as all messages of Truth does.  He gets so little screen time.  He gives great answers!  Loved his answer about 1 in 10 being a terrorist coming into your home.  Carson did a great job with the hardest question of the night regarding Putin invading Baltic states.  I think he had the most striking closing statement.

Jeb Bush – He is a statist.  He wants expanded war powers.  He also wants to bring Puerto Rico into the union, which is Krazi!  Why on Earth would we bring in an economic unpowered house full of crime?  He is chained to his past record, and that’s not a good record to be on.  I like how he dumps on Rubio on amnesty when he like amnesty.  Here’s the truth.  If you “give a path to citizenship,” the Democrats will attempt to “acceletrate the process.”  It will be a “one time thing” that will happen the NEXT time we have millions of “undocumented workers.”  If he thinks he would be Clinton, he is delusional.  Nothing would motivate Democrats more than running against Bush.

Rand Paul – He makes great arguments.  It is a shame that his presentation is so low-energy.  He did some great work regarding “criminal reform.”  He had a lot of good points.  He did a great job on the abortion question.  I do believe he is the only one that could balance the budget.

Chris Christie – It annoys me that he always sounds pretty good even though I believe that he is an imperial scumbag that would take a lot of vacations and have Bruce Springsteen to the White House.  Really good answer on Planned Parenthood.  That really gains him some ground.  I will say that he gets a bad rap on Bridge-gate.  He fired the people.  As such, I believe him.  This is the key principal difference between him and Obama with his scandals.

John Kasich – He seems to be speaking in platitudes tonight.  I think it’s because no one likes his plans.  Great…government equals charity…this is why I don’t like him.  Did Bret listen to Kasich at all on the Iran question?  Weird.  I mean…he is boring, but that is Bret’s only job, isn’t it?

Long Live the Constitution!

Tom’s Diner

Posted by Troy on 21st January 2016 in Uncategorized

A lot of people hate this song, but if you listen to the lyrics, it really is a beautiful and awesome song.  I highly recommend you listen to the acapella version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzE-VTYOqxU

I am sitting
In the morning
At the diner
On the corner

I am waiting
At the counter
For the man
To pour the coffee

And he fills it
Only halfway
And before
I even argue

He is looking
Out the window
At somebody
Coming in

“It is always
Nice to see you”
Says the man
Behind the counter

To the woman
Who has come in
She is shaking
Her umbrella

And I look
The other way
As they are kissing
Their hellos

I’m pretending
Not to see them
Instead
I pour the milk

I open
Up the paper
There’s a story
Of an actor

Who had died
While he was drinking
It was no one
I had heard of

And I’m turning
To the horoscope
And looking
For the funnies

When I’m feeling
Someone watching me
And so
I raise my head

There’s a woman
On the outside
Looking inside
Does she see me?

No she does not
Really see me
Cause she sees
Her own reflection

And I’m trying
Not to notice
That she’s hitching
Up her skirt

And while she’s
Straightening her stockings
Her hair
Has gotten wet

Oh, this rain
It will continue
Through the morning
As I’m listening

To the bells
Of the cathedral
I am thinking
Of your voice…

And of the midnight picnic
Once upon a time
Before the rain began…

I finish up my coffee
It’s time to catch the train

The take: She’s having her breakfast at a diner and not getting the care and attention due to her as a customer because this girl comes in that the guy at the counter is into.  Might I add, the girl shakes her umbrella which is really inconsiderate to everyone else by getting water everywhere.  She turns away so that she doesn’t have to see their exchange of affections.  The news has a story about some actor who died drinking.  Why do we care?  Why is the news full of this tripe?  It’s unimportant.  She’s trying to distract herself with other meaningless drivel.  She feels someone watching her and looks up.  She wonders if the girl outside sees her, but the girl outside is wrapped up in herself and is only seeing her own reflection.  While trying to make herself more presentable in her vanity, the girl gets her hair wet, making her look worse.  The talk about rain is just a statement of depression.  This rain, this depression, is going to last forever.  Then the church bells ring, which stands for a wedding that never happened.  She slows her voice and trails off, lost in a thought about her past love’s voice…and a midnight picnic long before the depression began…but it’s time to go to work so she finishes up the coffee and goes to catch the train because life doesn’t stop or care about her depression.  No one notices her.  Hell, she can’t even get the bare minimum as a paying customer…but life goes on…

Long Live the Constitution!

Republican Debate Fox Business

Posted by Troy on 10th November 2015 in Uncategorized

Fox Business really showed how it’s done.   A great debate.  Very well moderated.  No theatrics.  Very informative.  A+ Fox Business.  Can’t wait to see the Democratic debate on Fox Business.  HA HA HA…

Okay, let’s do the same format as before.

From the biggest loser to the biggest winners:

John Kasich showed his true colors.  He believes that government is the answer.  Free enterprise is all well and good until things get rough, then it’s up to the government to step in and save the day.  He’s toast.

Jeb Bush needed to shine, and he didn’t.  He’s gone.

Carly Fiorina needed to shine and she didn’t.  Also, Rand Paul took her to task over Russia in the Middle East and showed her up.  She didn’t do bad, and I would love to see her debate Hillary Clinton, but she didn’t do anything to help herself.  The fact that she lacks a magnetic personality also hurts her.

Donald Trump finally had someone slap him down.  Rand Paul took him to task over the Asian trade agreement and embarrassed him.  You can tell how bad it was by the way Trump did not lash back.  He knew it was a mistake and wanted the moment to pass.  It wasn’t a bad night overall for him, but it was a weaker performance that previous ones.  However, no one up there understands marketing the way he does.  He stays on message.  Whenever he talks about the future, it is GLORIOUS!  Vote for him, and America is going to be super awesome!!!!  Seriously, an election is just marketing, and he understands marking better than anyone else out there.  Do NOT count him out.

Ted Cruz had a solid performance with a couple of hiccups.  Nothing major, but not perfect.  He’s solid as a Constitutional hawk.  He will be the candidate that wants Constitutional constraints domestically while still allowing for “flexibility” in using the military for foreign policy without declaration of war.

Marco Rubio was a big winner.  He had a solid performance.  He got owned by Rand Paul at one point.  Still, he was a big winner because Bush and Kasich are losers.  Rubio will be the establishment’s guy in the end.  However, the establishment vote only represents 24% of the votes.  This is less than Trump and on par with Carson.  If I look at the remaining people, I don’t think they are going to go to Rubio. Rubio was a darling of the Tea Party.  He got to Washington and sold out.  Tea Party types assume that, once you do that, you will flip-flop whenever needed.  The only way he wins the primary is if the Super-PACs manage to convince Republican voters that only a moderate Latino could beat Hillary, and that is going to be the unspoken messaging for him.

Carson was a winner because he maintained his calm persona.  He spoke with such hope.  He gave good answers.  And he is just the most likable human being I’ve ever seen.

The biggest winner tonight was Rand Paul.  He showed everyone up and proved he is the only one that really has an interest in fixing the budget (regardless of what Kasich says…anyone for bailouts is for national debt).  He also did a great job advancing libertarianism and shaping the debate.  He will not be moving up in the polls to the upper tiers, but he did a great job of showing why he is relevant and why libertarianism is relevant.

Long Live the Constitution

The Democratic Debate Results

Posted by Troy on 13th October 2015 in Uncategorized

Cold dead hands, yo!  Cold dead hands…just sayin’.  Most of the people on the stage want people to be able to sue gun manufacturers for wrongful deaths.  Let us be honest: This is just an attempt to ban guns.  Anytime someone is murdered, the gun manufacturer will be sued.  They will be forced out of business by trial lawyers.  If you support this, I have one question: what is the difference between being able to sue gun manufacturers like is and knife makers for stabbings or Jack Daniels for drunk driving deaths (it goes on and on).  If you are for this, you are devoid of any logic in your desire for “by any means necessary” disarming.

Good gawd…this was the most boring thing I have ever seen.  These are the slowest talking, most boring people I have ever seen in my entire life…  So let’s go down the list.

Hillary Clinton:  ”Fascist.” She was handled with kid gloves, of course.  If I heard her say “First female President” one more time…  ”How would you be different than Obama?”  ”I have boobs!”  Okay…  Let’s be honest. The chick is a neo-fascist.  She wants to control everything.  She wants to spy on you.  And like all other people on the stage (excluding one), she thinks she can get the wealthy to pay for everything.  This is impossible.  We cannot do what the other “advanced” nations do.  You know why?  Because WE DEFEND THE —-ING WORLD!  If we tried, we would have to gut the military completely.  This would allow all the bad countries to do whatever they want (as they have already started doing anyway).  Be ready for a lot more blood in the future.

Bernie Sanders:  ”Socialist.”  But hey, at least he’s true to who he is.  He would be an utter disaster for this country on all fronts, but at least he’s being honest with who he is.  Give him that.  I think it’s cute how he thinks the Russian people will hold Putin accountable.  It’s Russia.  They LIKE totalitarians.  It’s part of their social makeup.  Why do people try to play with the rest of the world under the assumption that the rest of the world is like America?  It’s not.

Mike O’Malley: “Socialist.”  He strikes me as a weakling that likes to talk a big game.  He went on and on about guns.  Of course, all that he proposed wouldn’t have done anything to stop any of the shootings, but that doesn’t stop Democrats.  Yes.  The DO want your guns.  What is the point of any gun control if the end purpose isn’t total confiscation?  Leave it up to the States.  The Feds don’t have to do ANYTHING for guns.

Lincoln Chafee:  Ya know… nice to see an old school Liberal.  I didn’t like how he pinned his “bad vote” on his dead dad.  Not cool, dude, but overall, not the worst guy up there (but damn if that’s a low bar…).  Still, anti-gun.  Tax and Spend.

Jim Webb:  Holy cow!  Ya know, if he won the Presidency, I wouldn’t be happy, but I would be terrified outta my mind.  Seems like a rational dude that has thought out his positions and doesn’t feel the need to toe the party line.  I also like that he admitted you have a right to defend yourself.   He was the only one that said “all lives matter.”  That’s a new lithmus test.  If you cannot say “all lives matter,” you are weak-willed slime, and I can’t have any respect for you.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I want to buy a Confederate Flag

Posted by Troy on 25th June 2015 in Uncategorized

Southerners!  Check it out!  Go to Google > Shop.  Type in “Confederate Flag.”  It comes back: Not Found.

What…the…________?!

Well, Google is no longer my search engine.  Not sure what I will be using.  I’m thinking of reviving excite.com.  They have a fun name at least.  Maybe Lycos or webcrawler or hotbot is still out there…

All the major flag companies said “We’re not making them anymore.”  To which, I said, “Eh…no matter.  China will make them.  China will make anything!”

Wal-Mart and e-bay and Amazon said they wouldn’t sell them anymore.  To which, I said, “Eh…no matter.  People can buy them elsewhere.  Besides, the vendors have every right to decide what products they carry.”

But this is beyond the pale.  It is not up to Google’s discretion to decide what is appropriate for you to buy.  This makes them hypocrites!  They are always complaining about China and censorship, and they turn around and do the exact same thing.  It is amazing how quickly they moved on this!  A near blackout on this product for which demand has not changed or has even increased!  The powers that be decided they didn’t want you to have access to it, and poof!  Gone!

I can type in “Brother Sister Incest Fiction” right now and get pages and pages of pornography.  But we have a blackout on Rebel Flags.  I could probably find bestiality and all kinds of filthy ____ with less trouble than finding the damn stars and bars?!  Are you ____ing kidding me?

If you’re black (or liberal or whatever) and reading this and getting all upset about me wanting to buy a flag, let me ask ya…what if tomorrow the powers that be decided rap music is destructive and had Amazon and Google pull your access to that?  It’s freedom of speech.  You’re either for it or against it.  You can’t have it both ways because you sell out all speech when you sell out ANY speech.

Interestingly enough, this whole episode is reminding me of the other side of the Rebel Flag, the one that doesn’t get ANY press time.  It is a symbol for the time when the states stood up to the Federal government and said, “No.”  Regardless of the fact that it was on slavery (yeah yeah, we could spend all day debating it, but the root cause of most of the friction from North and South stemmed from slavery), it is still the time the states said, “No.”

The battle flag is not illegal.  I should be able to buy it if I want to.  If I wanted to run it up my flag pole, that’s my own damn business.  While I can justify Valley Forge’s decision not to make it and Amazon’s decision not to carry it, I will forever condemn Google’s hypocritical stance to censor it.

What speech is next for Google?  Shall they deny access to politicians?  What if they chose to black out information on the Founding Fathers?  Am I taking things to a silly level?  Maybe!  But I don’t care!  I am offended and pissed off on a very deep and personal level.  The logic is the same.  They have deemed themselves to be the adjudicator to the ideas you are allowed to expose yourself to!

Goodbye Google.  I shall not miss you.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Liberal Spin

Posted by Troy on 7th November 2014 in Uncategorized

What amazes me is how instantly the Left began to spin their losses.

The Daily Show chalked up the election results as money winning over ideas.  Wow, where was he with this talk when Obama outspent McCain 5 to 1.  Of course, that’s different because Obama had all the ideas.  right?  It’s not like Obama had advocated candidates using public funding only…until it benefited him.  Awesome.

The other spin?  The same one that Obama had.  ”All the good people stayed home.  Only idiots vote in the midterm elections.”  That’s an interesting proposition.  Not voting in midterm elections shows either total sorriness or a lack of knowledge on how our political process works.

Bill Maher claimed it was nothing but racism.  That’s so stupid that it’s not worth talking about.

Back to the Daily Show.  ”Why did Democrats lose?”  Obviously because people were pissed that the Democrats didn’t do a good enough job pushing their agenda.  Yes.  That makes sense.  People wanted the Left’s policy so bad.  They didn’t get it.  So what did they do?  They voted in people that would never pass the Left’s agenda because…um…because they want the Left’s…agenda… yeah.  Makes a lot of sense.

Fortunately for the Left, Obama believes himself to be a dictator.  He will do has he damn well pleases outside of Constitutional constraints.  He knows that he is safe from impeachment.  Any attempt to get rid of this president will be presented by the media and Hollywood as racist.  I personally believe that Obama wants to be impeached at this point.  His only relevance for history at the moment is that he is the first president of African descent.  Past that, he has accomplished nothing worthwhile.  The only way he will have any lasting significance is if he was impeached (either successfully or unsuccessfully).  As such, he will take illegal action to give illegal aliens status.  If the Republicans fight him, the Leftist media will paint them as racist.  If they don’t fight him, the Democrats secure their political futures on the backs of newly legalized voters.

Long Live the Constitution!

Real Men (Marines Watching Frozen)

Posted by Troy on 15th May 2014 in Uncategorized

Someone shared a video of a bunch of Marines singing along to “Let It Go” from Frozen.  Needless to say, they invite ridicule.  Here are a bunch of beefy men, true warriors, singing along like little girls (and having a great time doing so).  Of course, such ridicule should be done selectively as any one of them could wipe the floor with the average guy that wanted to pick on them.  Something that should be accounted for in the equation.  So, that leads me to the question: what does it mean to be a real man?  Does feeling joy in your heart and singing along to a cartoon make you any less of a man?

I’ve had people tell me all kind of things that qualifies a person as a real man.  Going to war.  Being able to reverse a trailer.  Being able to drive a stick.  Running a marathon.  I even had a guy claim he was a real man because he drank stout beer.  I wish I could go back and order a cosmopolitan just to check his reaction.  Oh well.  Such are regrets.  What I have decided is that there is only one test to see if you are a man: Do you meet your responsibilities.  If you do, then you are a real man.  It really doesn’t matter how you accomplish it.  A man might be able to completely rebuild an engine, but if he has 5 illegitimate kids that he doesn’t pay a dime in child support for, I’d say he is a piss poor man.  Meanwhile, another man who has to take his car into the shop but takes care of his family is a much better man because he has taken care of his responsibilities.  That is not to say that being mechanically inclined is not a great thing.  I hold great admiration for those who can work on their cars.  However, such trivial matters should not be the measure of the man.  In both cases, the car is fixed.  The responsibility of that duty, discharged.  However, one man takes care of his other responsibilities and the other one does not.

I’ve read a lot of history.  One of the things that always trips me up is how much men used to embrace, kiss on the cheek, weep…all of these things that we have decided makes a man less manly.  And these were real men…George Washington, Alexander the Great, Arminius… men you would not want to insult.  So, what happened?  Why do we consider such behavior weak, unmanly?  The only thing I really can come up with is Hollywood.  We were brainwashed by how these men act, that they get shot and don’t cry.  Of course, it’s easy not to cry when you don’t REALLY have a hunk of burning lead in your body.  My dad was a tough man.  One of the toughest I’ve ever known.  He accidentally shot himself in the leg.  He cried.  I never thought any less of him for it.  I would have squalled.

I think the men back then understood life more than we do now, which is sad and pathetic.  They accepted life on a level that we don’t anymore.  As such, they allowed themselves to feel each moment.  Maybe it was because you never knew when you’d die back then.  After all, people rarely made it past 40 back then.  You had to embrace each moment.

I have found that the more I write, the easier I am moved to tears, either of sadness or joy or just the infinite beauty of a moment.  My writing has almost brought me closer to God and has helped me understand the nature of God.  C.S. Lewis hints at this in Mere Christianity.  Researchers have found that reading makes people more empathetic.  I think it’s because it enables you to get into the head of another person, even if it is a fictional being.  I think it is even much more so when you write that person.  You are them, and yet you aren’t.  How much more so is it for God then?  To completely understand someone through and through?  Then to know that he knows everyone so thoroughly?

To anyone that says real men do not cry.  I only say

Jesus wept.
