Bernie’s Plan

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

I think I know what his plan is.  I think he wants to go to the convention and give the speech right before Hillary’s…and announce he is launching an independent bid.  It’s genius!  Here’s the thing.  Democrats keep calling for him to concede and give up and start helping Hillary win…but here’s the thing…He’s NOT a Democrat.  He is a Democratic Socialist/Independent.  He doesn’t care if he ticks off the Democratic party because his success (either past or future) is not dependent on the party.  Also, he’s in his 70′s, and this is his last hooray.  Also…I think that he hates Hillary.  To Bernie, Hillary is no better than Trump.  Both are about profit.  Both are (in his mind) beholden to big business.  I don’t think he is going to help her at all.  I actually like Bernie.  He keeps fighting.  Deep down, Americans love someone that doesn’t give up.  I’m putting my bet on an independent run.

Long Live the Constitution!

Final Day of the Democratic National Convention

Posted by Troy on 6th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

What can I say?  No talk about QE3.  No talk about the deficit.  Instead, it would appear that we can spend to infinity.  No problem.  As long as it is done with good intentions, right?  We’ll keep businesses open, even if they can’t run the business right.  Even if the labor contracts are killing them.  Well let illegal aliens stay, as long as they vote Democrat when they’re given the full rights of citizenship.  Where did all this faux patriotism come from?  I’ve never heard the chant of USA USA at a Democratic meeting.  They seem fond of invoking the Founding Fathers.  That’s also something new for a Democratic function.  Query: what do the Democrats want that the Founding Fathers would have approved of?  Pretty much nothing, right?  Can you think of anything.

Here’s his argument.  Things were worse than he knew (hey, he couldn’t be bothered to look into the economy when he was a Senator, right?).  Things would be worse if it wasn’t for him.  If he’s not re-elected, things will go back downhill instead of progressing…right when things were just about to turn around.

Okay, so, basically, none of his arguments can be backed up.  GM is just in as much trouble as always.  They will eventually crash and burn.  We cannot continue spending on ALL THE HUNDRED PROGRAMS HE MENTIONED.  Finally, when all the provisions of Obamacare goes into effect in 2014, watch for a triple dip recession.  The economy will crash and burn.  2012: Capital Gains rates expire.  Those with gains will sell at 12/31/12 to save 25% on taxes.  This will crash the market.  2014, Companies are forced to buy insurance or pay a penalty.  Companies will do what they have to do.  They will fire people to get under the limit.  They will drop their health insurance (forcing people onto the government plan).  Or they will cut full time people down to part time to get out of it.  Those companies which cannot bear the costs will close up shop.  Unfortunately for those fired, there will not be jobs to replace the jobs lost because we will still be in a recession due to Obama’s attack on the capital gains rate.


Another Day of Idiots at the Democratic National Convention

Posted by Troy on 5th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

How telling is it that they had to take a vote to bring the word “God” back to the Convention.  Apparently snubbing the religion of 80% of the country was a bad move.  How funny is it that they had to take the vote three times?  It’s even funnier that the Democrats at the Convention were too stupid to take the hint and say “aye!”  You can hear the lady in the back ground say “Go ahead and do it anyway,” or something to that effect.  After it was announced that 2/3rds said yes, everyone booed.  There was no way more than 50% said “aye,” but there you go.  At least the Republicans didn’t have to take a vote to be able to say “God bless America.”

I won’t be shopping at Costco anytime soon.  Not that we have one around here anyway, but if we did…  Is this what the American Spirit has been reduced to?  ”Anyone can succeed with a lot of hard work, a little luck, and a little help from their neighbors and their country.”  What the hell is that?!  When did that creep in?  It’s sickening.  As now we have have to have help to succeed.  I guess you can’t keep a good man down as long as he had some financial assistance from the taxpayers.  Right?

I’m sick of labor unions.  Please show me one Republican that is for the abolition of labor unions?  They just want to end the practice of forcing people to join unions.  The time of unions have come and gone.  The unions should be put back in the toolbox as any good tool after its usefulness has worn out, to be brought back out if the need arises.  Have you ever wondered what happened to the typewriter makers?  Oh, their time came and went?  Right.  So we closed the plants.  Do we keep on making stuff that no one wants or needs?  (I am aware you CAN buy a typewriter still)

As far as Fluck goes, who is talking about taking the right to contraception away?  We just expect you to pay for it yourself.  Look, if you need contraception for a medical condition, that is one thing.  If not, then it is a recreational drug.  Buy it yourself, yo.  It’s cheap!  Do away with your data plan on your smart phone and you’ll have cash to spare for that contraception.  No biggie.  Oh, and where were all these women for the past decades while men pay more for auto insurance?  I didn’t hear any complaints then (not even from men).

Next, I want to talk about Elizabeth Warren saying that corporations aren’t people, and they aren’t.  They aren’t people in the same way that churches are not people.  Schools are not people.  Families are not people.  Communities are not people.  Towns are not people.  Countries are not people…but they are, aren’t they?  They are made up of people.  As such, what hurts these GROUPS OF PEOPLE actually HURTS PEOPLE.  I know it’s a hard concept to figure out, but give it a try.

And that brings us to Clinton.  Ah, Clinton.   I miss Clinton.  You could send him a bus of well-marbled interns and keep him busy for days.  I wish we could do the same for Obama.  First, Obama is not Clinton.  Clinton moved to the Center after the people slapped him with the 1994 election.  Obama did not.  All Obama did was say he would do what he wants without going through Congress.  For a Constitutional scholar, I guess he missed the whole “separations of powers” thing.  Obama, you can’t do that.  You don’t get to say how the money is spent.  I love these jobs numbers.  We have not added near enough jobs to handle the new people entering the workforce.  As such, that is a net loss of jobs.  If you need 200,000 jobs a month to maintain the employment rate and you only get 100,000, you didn’t gain 100,000, you went down another 100,000 jobs.  Not good.  Clinton argues that the Republicans claim that the Democrats want everyone dependent of government.  Gee golly, I don’t know why you would get that idea after the Democrat National Convention considering how they tell you that the only way anyone succeeds is by government spending and government programs.  Did you notice that?  In the lexicon of the Democrats, only the hand of the Government keeps you from falling into the fiery pits of Hell (or whatever Hell is for them).  Finally, here’s the thing on Obamacare: they put all the popular things in the first 2 years of it.  This is because they need these to get elected.  This law is the hammer to small businesses.  In 2014, the economy will crash and burn if Obamacare is left in place.  Let me also break down a little Constitutional law for ya: Clinton claimed that the Republicans are the ones that caused the debt (Reagan, Bush, and Bush).  Hey, dummy, Presidents are not the ones that do the spending.  That is Congress.  The majority of deficit spending has come at the hands of Democratically controlled Houses.  Fact.  Can’t deny it.  Why is it that the Democrats want me to get felt up before I can fly but think getting an ID is too much to vote?  Also, the Dream Act has caused immigration enforcement to be impossible.  Amazingly, everyone that is caught has said that they came as a young child!  Golly!  That didn’t take long, did it?

Again, how dare you invoke the Founding Fathers!  Nothing in your platform would have ANY support from the Founding Fathers.  You disgust me.

So, in summary: more fear, more bashing, and more class warfare.


Obama is the Future!

Posted by Troy on 4th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

Well, thank God that…oh wait, I can’t say that.  The Democrat National Convention did their best to carve out any mention of God (outside of the opening 2 hours of Muslim prayer) from their program.  Okay…well, thank whatever then that this is cleared up: Obama is the Future, and Romney is the Past.  Great.  Now we have a…oh wait, no…There’s a problem with this argument…Obama isn’t the Future…He’s the Present.

Sooooooo…how does the Present stack up then?  A mired economy?  A monetary policy that will cause inflation and destroy the US dollar as the world’s currency?  Continual, unsustainable deficits?  Continued unemployment?  Nationalization of the health care system (endgame of Obamacare)?  A tax system that is actually based on “fairness” rather than maximizing revenues to the government?  More and more laws (they may call them regulations, but they’re laws) that are passed outside of the legislative process?  Additional reductions to our nuclear arsenal, making us weaker to our enemies?  Relinquishing our national sovereignty to the UN and other multi-national organizations?  Giving away citizenship to large swaths of illegal aliens, undermining our natural culture (immigration should be controlled to force assimilation)?

Of course, I suppose you could say that he is the Future, and this is the beginning…so, how does that stack up?  Let’s project trillion dollar deficits for the next four years?  Yikes.

As far as Romney being the Past, how many people would like to go back to the past?  The 1950′s were pretty nice in a societal context (minus the civil rights issues anyway).  Would you change this economy to the one from the 1980s or 1990s?   I could think of a lot of good things about the past.

And let me just take a few pot shots at Mayor Castro: This guy is not eloquent.  It IS about drive.  It is NOT about opportunity.  There is NOTHING that will hold someone back if they have the drive.  His drivel makes me sick.  He proposes (like the rest of the Democrats) that the economy rests upon the middle class.  That’s cute considering that this administration has done more to rape the middle class than any other administration in history.  He wants to talk about the opportunities of education?  Students did better in the past with far less “investment.”  Know why?  Because students were scared to death of their parents if they got F’s.  It’s about parenting.  A teacher cannot replace a parent.  I will be on an inner-city youth that is driven to succeed and supported by their parents over a rich kid that wants to party and doesn’t study and who’s parents don’t care.  He wants to say that it isn’t about you, it’s about your kids (the ones that aren’t aborted anyway).  The problem is that you have to do the best you can and raise your kids the best you can to give them that.  You have to have a good job and the drive to succeed to make your child’s life better.  It is not the taxpayers’ obligation to pay for their college.  If you want that for your kids, make it happen!  Make them study.  Valedictorians get scholarships.  And how DARE he invoke the Founding Fathers?  WHAT, WHAT in the Democratic platform would the founders approve of?  Getting rid of God altogether?  Adams would faint.  Inflationary monetary policy?  Hamilton would shoot  them.  Giving up our sovereignty?  Jefferson would be outraged.  Welfare?  Franklin would scoff.  Regulations over the legislative process?  Madison would be bewildered.  Cutting our national security?  Washington would curse.  Abortion?  That’s what they want to harp on…don’t you think any of them would be appalled?  I have NEVER heard a Democrat speak with any actual love for our Founding Fathers.  NEVER.  Have you?  I’m being serious here.  They may praise the First Amendment (excluding the Freedom of Religion anyway), but past that, they have no love for this country as it was founded.  The Constitution is something which is to be overcome, to be surpassed by something better–not amended, replaced.

The Democratic National Convention has shown me a few things so far.  1) Their values are outside what the majority of Americans believe.  They seem to believe that Americans wish to go secular.  They seem to think that Americans want additional debt.  They seem to think that Americans wish to punish the wealthy.  2) Their election is based upon class warfare.  Marx would be proud.  Remember, Obama was raised by Marxists.  They are trying to separate us and get us to attack the rich.  I don’t begrudge the rich for who they are.  I wouldn’t trade places with Bill Gates or Soros or Mitt Romney.  I love who I am.  I love the life I made for myself because it is MY life.  It reflects my values and my choices.  The fact of the matter is that we could all be rich…it just takes a single minded obsession to gain wealth and a certain amount of common sense.  Benjamin Franklin worked three jobs every day from sun up to sun down every single day of the week.  He became rich.  You make more than you spend, and you don’t waste.  Look at what you spend money on.  Most of it is crap you don’t need and really don’t want when you get right down to it.  3)  All they can do is demonize Mitt Romney.  I don’t even know where to begin with this.  4)  ”Hope and Change” has been replaced with “The Future!” or “Forward!”  Forward to bloody what?  Where could this possibly end that is positive?  Seriously, map it out!  Tell me what stupid policy of his is so positive?  Have any of his ideas actually worked out?  Nope?
