So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
Sure, Pat! It's one of my oldie favorites! I had just thght of the "desert" angle at that moment! It seems to fit just right! :)
EXCLUSIVE – Nearly 60,000 immigrants with arrest records -- including 10 accused of murder -- have been allowed to stay in the United States under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revealed Monday.
why do we need more people in this country anyway? --
SS - their main point being that the SS Ponzi scheme requires enough more workers than retirees to survive. But they didn't touch on the Bretton Woods financial system having a basic requirement of 2.2 children per two parent household population growth to maintain an economy. More than 2.2 kids per family = economic growth, less than 2.2 kids per family = a shrinking economy. ...and our country has been below 2.2 for at least couple decades now.
.. now apply what they did talk about, how stupid it is to have a system designed to be reliant on perpetual population growth to even a more fundamental aspect of 'civilization' - the financial system, Bretton Woods. It also depends on perpetual population growth, with a minimum amount of growth necessary to maintain the system. -- Stupid is as stupid does... civilization as we know it knowing becoming completely reliant on Ponzi schemes that inevitably must fail.
yeah Am, no doubt the abortion argument vs. the need for immigrants to maintain Ponzi schemes is more than valid. The compounding effect of doing stupid by killing our own and importing incompatibles to replace them is too.
but to me they're arguments to prolong the lives of systems which by design must inevitably fail. My experience tells me doing that usually/predominantly results in a much more miserable failing experience. I think focusing on ending the reliance on Ponzi schemes would be the most productive agenda - exercising the importance of holding tight to sound principles. The abortion argument can and should be won on those grounds as well. Science is on the abortion argument's side - the other side's argument is solely = 'when life begins is a matter of opinion', and when politics is rightfully excluded that's an argument easily won.
STARBUCKS AND THE 21st CENTURY
It's been reported that far left liberal coffee house ceo, Kevin Johnson, will be closing down approx 150 locations. Is it because of lost sales due to the ceo's politically correct sensitivity policy? Nope. Not even close!
The locations which will put 1000s out of work will be in cities w/ a $15 per hour minimum wage policy.
StarBucks is like a cheerleader rooting for the Seahawks - but doesn't want to show up at a game; and seems to want the team to LOSE!
"Progress" is for SUCKERS!
Hmmm... I wonder if Maxipad Waters will be scream out for the mob to hunt down; spit at; and gove death threats to Kevin Johnson, his family, and his staff for taking away jobs that will make 1000s go hungry and probably die? I SERIOUSLY doubt it.
♪ Progress and hy-po-cri-sy
live together in perfect har-mo-ny ♫ ...
Ladies And Gents, I Give You The Beginnings Of The Maxine-Democrats
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.".
Those were the words of one of the democrat heroins of "tolerance", Maxine Waters
She echoed the words of the radical left's revolutionary leader and savior, Barack Obama: "Get in their faces! You bring a gun!". It also echoes the organized actions of the very regime that the left accuse Conservatives of being: Adolf Hitler's National Socialist (nazi) Party when they literally hunted jews down in Germany and across Europe; placing the jews in internment (aka concentration) camps during WW2. Notice the term "Socialist" is/was part of their banner / philosophy.
And, speaking of those "internment" camps - which seems to be the left's favorite word of the day, the POTUS had ordered the same to be done to Japanese-Americans back in WW2. Was it President Trump? Nope. He was merely an infant then. No, the POTUS that ordreed that was Franklin D Roosevelt. A democrat.
For the Maxine-left to pretty much say "We don't want YOUR KIND here" is also very reflective of the Confederate South's Jim Crow era prior to the Civil War. And the dominant political party there was...yes, you guessed it, the Democrat Party as well. I'm sure that you SEE the pattern of behavior there. Those that dpn't is because they won't! Why?
Because presenting facts to liberals is like turning on the lights on rtas and cockroaches; or exposing vampires to sunlight.
It sure is too bad, though, that those radical creatures don't scatter and disappear. God knows that they will never go towards the light of the facts and truth. Once again their actions will result in more innocent people getting badly hurt or even killed. Godspeed, Steve Scalise.
random thoughts about reading through today's news..
. Jared patched through an imposter to Air Force 1?? man, he's a constant screw up isn't he.
. the potential scotus nominees I've seen so far all have giant red flags imo - one is from D.C. (disqualifier), another from Chicago (disqualifier), a snarky Austin Texas guy who thinks he's a witty tweeter (disqualifier), and a hyphenated diversity nominee. - not impressed so far
. given all the articles of hype about volcanoes and space discoveries I'm starting to think maybe they're preparing us for their next global scam faux crisis.. ?Evacuate Earth !! ? speaking of space discoveries, the news that space is full of carbon grease surely pisses off some of the anti-fossil fuel nuts ;' /
" Jared patched through an imposter to Air Force 1?? man, he's a constant screw up isn't he."
I never trusted Jared or DT Jr. When they fell for that trap the Russians set up, baiting them into believeing that they had "dirt" on Hillary, could've became a disastrpus to DT's presidency.
But, then again, they proved what cluster-fuc*s they are when they "forgot" to change their party affiliation from the NY democrsta they are to "R". Thus, they couldn't even vote for their father / father-in-law during the 2016 primaries.
Also, it's been reported that there are two women on the list of potential nominees for the SCOTUS. I seriously hope that DT's leftist sister is NOT one of them! ,
The President needs to keep the likes of Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and the former president of the Heritage Foundation close his ear. America's future most certainly depends on at least a 6/3 split that favors NOT any political agenda or political correctness - but yet another Constitutionallst. Ur WILL BE the only true way to stop the radical left from completeing Obama's "fundamental transformation of the United States of America".
I also have a feeling that, w/ swing-voter Kennedy's retirement, Chief Justice John Roberts might just become the new swing-voter. And I'm sure you all KNOW why I believe this!
seen several 'trump is winning, left is reeling' articles the past 24 hours, a couple written by loyally biased Ds. I'm thinking about a few years ago when it was common to read a politician say something like - 'Nobody likes it so it must be good bill', on bills that were inevitably gonna be passed into law, by members of both sides of the uniparty coin.
..and I'm thinking that 'actually winning' itself is probably a pejorative to the whole bunch. Politics is about compromise they say...
“In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.” ― Ayn Rand
I'm also thinking that the progressives of both sides of the coin are showing signs of being completely lost on what to do with a president who doesn't follow the long established script... and that that is exactly what was intended by those who elected him.
Yes Ayn Rand's message should be taken seriously.
Honestly I do think the Democrats constant unhinged behaviors will hurt them in the midterms. I was a bit worried for awhile that between the left and the antiTrupsters of the right that folks were thinking well maybe if Trump was replaced in 2020 the left will shut up. That thought is fading because they see that even if a thing is changed the left is off to the gates with more unhinged behavior.
Thanks for all the links.
I am recovering from a very busy 4 days as a volunteer for Kelli Ward + letter writings to the editors of our local paper and e-news site as well as to the AZGOP.
Plus special meeting to strategize for a possible chance to challenge RINO stacking of the county GOP.
the 'unhinged behavior' reminds me of something Beck pointed out multiple times when he was doing his chalkboard lessons on Fox = that the repeated cycle of these political transformations says that 'they' will inevitably unmask themselves trying to bring the transformation to fruition.
...and speaking of the cycles; I saw a few minutes of a PBS documentary on our country's history recently. The part I watched talked of our country's original culture highly respected the knowledge of history proving political environments are naturally cyclical - until we discarded that concept in favor of the concept of our country's 'manifest destiny'. I didn't watch much more than that but it strikes me as another example of discarding the exercising of sound reason for 'progressive' thought. -- IF the two thoughts of 'historically cyclical political environments' and 'manifest destiny' are indeed opposing concepts I think the cyclical concept is currently demonstrating again it's validity as fact - emphatically.
Same old same old will reoccur if Trump does not restore the rule of law by going after the career deep state operatives at the federal level.
at best I think. Referring back to knowledge of the political cycle - I suspect we're very near the point of the citizenry rejecting the concept of law abiding due to the elite being above the law. It's one phase for it to be publicly obvious with the wealthy elite, and a much closer to the threshold phase for it to be so obvious with the political elite. I think without Hillary/Lynch/Comey/Lerner and others going to jail we're very close to antifa/MS13 types and even far less extreme people discarding the concept of law abiding and our already dysfunctional society gets much worse.
