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!

Socialism Wins!

Posted by Troy on 8th May 2012 in Current Events, Political

France and Greece have held their elections and have decided to kick out those fuddy duddies that are enforcing austerity in exchange for Socialist party candidates that are “pro-growth” (i.e. spending) strategies.  So…has the world completely lost its mind?  I don’t know what else to say, honestly.  They are on the brink of bankruptcy and fiscal failure.  France was recently downgraded, and Greece is having to beg for scraps from their larger EU cousins…and they are doubling down on the policies that have brought there there!  This is like someone throwing wood on a wild fire in an attempt to smother it!  The sad thing is that this does not give me much hope for our future.  We are on the path of Europe now.  Nearly half the country does not pay taxes.  No one seems willing to cut their own freebies.  Here’s the thing: if we are to survive the common crisis, we’re going to have to stand up and say, “I don’t need my benefits.”  As long as we are demanding that others give up their freebies without giving up ours, we are in trouble.

Long Live the Constitution!

State of the Union Speech

Posted by Troy on 24th January 2012 in Current Events, Political

Where do I begin?

For starters, his concepts about American manufacturing, American energy, and American Values.

Unless he wants to do away with the minimum wage, we are not going to have a lot of manufacturing jobs.  I suppose he could set out some prohibitive tariffs, but I doubt he has the guts, and it’s debatable as to the wisdom of that move.  He just shut down the Keystone pipeline and hasn’t allowed American companies to drill for oil, so he really loses a lot of credibility on this issue.  I suppose that he could say that he is very pro-American GREEN energy, which is not cost effective right now.  The fact of the matter is, if you agree that there’s a finite amount of oil in the world and we should be researching new energy to be ahead of the curve, then you should be for pumping as much crude as we can and use the profits to fund these projects so that we will use up the supply of a soon to be obsolete energy source.  As to American values, Obama’s perspective of American values runs counter to most of American.  Hell, his wife once commented that America was a “downright mean country.”  She also said that “for the first time in her adult life, she was proud of [her] country.”  Inferring Barrack’s beliefs should be fairly easy…he did marry her after all.

The President discussed everyone paying their fair share.  Here’s a quick question, what is a fair share?  How much of your own money should you be allowed to keep?  How fair is it for someone to take money from you and give it directly to another person for their own PERSONAL welfare?  The government is supposed to provide for the common welfare.  Do you know how taxes were supposed to be levied?  The Constitution said that the government could only take taxes directly from the states based on their share of the nation’s population.  It also only allowed for money to be in gold and silver.  Here’s a question, if the federal government only used gold and silver, was only responsible for those activities mandated by the Constitution, and could only tax based on the original schematics, would we be in this mess?  That’s Ron Paul’s point entirely.

I was sickened by Obama’s positive spin on some very dangerous acts.  He wants to do away with the filibuster.  Why?  Because it stops the Leftist agenda.  The fact of the matter is that his ideas are terrible, and that is why he needs a super-majority to win.  Of course, he wants the Dream Act passed immediately so that he can get the Latino vote.  Finally, there’s the takeover of the internet–all to control the information we see.  2084 isn’t too far away.

In another matter, what is with all the executive orders?  How can he wave a pen and make the military run on green energy?  How is he funding it without Congressional approval?  For that matter, when the hell is the Congress going to pass a budget?  Am I the only one that’s sick and tired of not having a budget?

Dear Lord, how many countries are we at war with or about to be at war with?  A thought occurred to me today…if the Founding Fathers could see how we were today, how would they feel about the constant state of war we find ourselves in?  I seriously doubt they would approve of us going to war without Congressional approval.  The fact of the matter is, none of these conflicts are popular enough with the American people where Congressmen would dare vote for a war.  This is why we’ve decided not to have the Constitution get in the way.  And here again, this is Ron Paul’s point.  I just wish he was better at projecting it.  Sadly, I think we are probably lock into some sort of conflict in Iran.  At least we are trying to use sanctions instead of military might (although they are typically ineffective).  As Sun Tzu said, it is best to deal with your enemies first by influence and the last resort is to invade them.

The last point I want to make is this: What is the deal with the lighting?  What, were they going for the “rays of light through a cloud”/God smiling upon Obama?  The only thing missing was a choir singing.  Bah!

Long Live the Constitution!

Senator McConnell and His Stupid Idea to Let Obama Increase the Debt

Posted by Troy on 12th July 2011 in Current Events, Political

Are you kidding me?

So we have a branch of the government that is going to surrender one of their checks and balances to the other branch?  However, this is really just a face saving move and one that tries to put all the blame on the President.  Basically, the Legislative Branch approves of the debt increase, but they get to wash their hands neatly of it while avoiding having to give away any tax positions or getting railed about any cuts to Medicare et cetera.  I know this is all theater, but it still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

The fact of the matter is, this is like being married to a spouse that just spends all the money.  If they tell you to go get another job so you can pay off the credit cards, they will probably spend all that money too.  Eventually, they will tell you to get more credit cards and more mortgages and borrow from friends and family until, one day, no one will lend to you anymore.  At that point, it all comes crashing down.  So a wise person would refuse the request to get another job or (at the very least) destroy all the credit cards and take the spending spouse’s name off all the accounts before getting the second job.  The sooner this is done, the better. 

We need to get back to the old ways.  We used to rely on family and friends and community and the church, now we just sit around with our hands out, waiting for our benefits that the country can no longer afford.  Our young to old ratio will not support Medicare and Social Security.  However, increasing our population will only lead to more problems.  The only thing we can do is rely on the ones we love.  We need to take care of ourselves and of each other.  We used to not have Medicare and Social Security, and people were not dying in the streets.  The elderly lived with their children.  This is the way it should be.  Medicare and Social Security were bad ideas when they first began and only became more and more of a disaster.  We can put it off, but it will only make the end more horrible. 

Take a look a Greece.  It’s coming.

Long Live the Constitution.

I Want Your Money

Posted by Troy on 10th June 2011 in Entertainment

I Want Your Money is a documentary about socialism versus capitalism.  It is fairly entertaining.  It centers around the presidencies of Obama and Reagan.  Most of the points they cover are very apt.  I found the cartoon portions to be distracting.  The claymation-esque nature of the animation was just a bit off putting.  The clip of Phil Donahue’s interview of Milton Freedman makes the whole movie worthwhile.  I have never seen such a verbal smackdown in my entire life.  His defense of capitalism was beautiful, eloquent, funny, and absolutely devastating.  I would recommend that everyone watch this movie.  If you are a fan of free enterprise, you will love it.  If you are a fan of centralized planning, maybe it will open your eyes a bit.
