More money…

the Schiff-Pelosi sham impeachment is proving quite lucrative to the Republican National Committee,  which had another boffo fund-raising month.   It now has  over $61  million in the bank and is debt-free.   By contrast the Dems’ group is $7 million in debt.   It’s excuse is that it has so many presidential candidates.   It can’t possibly be because Americans are sick of the lies and corruption and have realized that Trump told us what he was going to do and has been trying to achieve it since day one.   Does he exaggerate?   Yep,  but he doesn’t lie as Obama did weekly.   Is he sometimes rude?   Yep,  and most of the people who feel the lash of his tongue deserve it.

I once worked with a man who wore a pair of Super Bowl rings.  He was big and muscular and tough and would sometimes yell at people who had failed to perform.  I was one of the few people who dared enter his office when he was in full roar,  because i did my job.  I didn’t lie,  I didn’t blame others for my own shortcomings,  and I carried my part of the load.   That is how you get bonuses.,   Only in the progressive fantasyland  do the little people thank you for jerking them  around, lying through your teeth and trying to destroy their lives and well-being.   Hopefully, no one will tell the Left this…

Doesn’t Sharpton’s nonprofit…

…deserve the  same level  of scrutiny as Trump’s?    New York Attorney General Letitia James is immensely pleased that she secured a large judgment against Trump’s outfit,  but shows no interest in going after the race-baiter in chief,  despite the fact that his tax records mysteriously get burnt to a crisp every few years.

If I had realized what an easy way to make a quarter million a year racial division and lying was I might have taken a different career path.  Having watched Al Sharpton for a few minutes on MSNBC I find he remains the same incoherent,  illogical,  mumbling know-nothing he has always been.  But he is well-protected because Democrats have long used him as a third-party attack dog and see  no advantage  in picking a fight with him.

Flat-earthers….

leave a comment »

I have always thought members of the Flat Earth Society were eccentric and rather odd,  but amusing.   I am out of patience with them now.  Have  none of them  ever stood on an ocean beach and wondered why they could not see land on the far side?   Does the gentleman mentioned in the article even know what a curve does?  Apparently not.  Why has no one asked him why he can’t see both sides of a ball simultaneously?   I realize it has been decades since a child could actually get a decent education in  public school,  but apparently they now also bore all semblance of common sense out of children as well.

PETA pathetic…

leave a comment »

The people at PETA are so stupid they don’t know that  sheep need  to be sheared so their wool doesn’t mat up and basically immobilize them.   Do sheep love being sheared?   I expect they don’t,  but they clearly enjoy being cooler and carrying less weight.

Unfortunately there are people who will pay over a hundred bucks for a tasteless all-acrylic sweater they can’t lean back in and tell themselves they are doing good and supporting a fine cause.

Market high…

leave a comment »

The Left has been saying for three years that the economy is about to sink into recession.  The democratic presidential candidates all say some version of “Orange Man bad…economy bad…not helping anyone but the rich.”   Yes,  we do have a bad case of overspending,  and too many government employees,  and there are still loads of regulations and rules Trump can dispose of.   But the stock market  just reached  a  record high,  which is proof that many,  many people don’t believe the doom and gloom.   That may be because a large swathe of the public see the impeachment inquiry as a purely political ploy without basis,  and they calculate Trump is tough enough to keep doing what he promised to do and that his continued success will stiffen the backbones of Republicans and cast the Deep State into despondency.   Drive on,  Mr. President!

If you want to know why so many of the available jobs are rather low-paying  service sector  jobs,  thank the government.  But what do you expect when manufacturing is sent overseas,  and you have a president who spent eight years trying to destroy the carbon-based energy sector?

The ugly truth is that too  few Americans  are well-educated enough to perform the high-tech jobs.   We barely speak English and we are lousy at even simple math,  much less rudimentary problem-solving skills.  I am sick of hearing people proclaim how smart and aware young people are today.   They  are not.  Add to that the protests of the activists demanding $15 an hour minimum wage,  and you have many industries looking to automate to avoid being burdened with employees who can’t produce enough to be worth their salaries and benefits. No one ever suspected that cotton production would be fully mechanized,  even after mechanical planters and pickers arrived,  because there was no way to get rid of weeds other than by hand-pulling and hoeing.   But in the late 1930’s a retired Air Corps Colonel,  Price C. McLemore,  devised a method of flame cultivation which used burning fuel to kill weeds without damaging cotton.   The Alabama farmer had  done the  impossible,  and was awarded the Edward Longstreth Medal by the Franklin Institute for his invention.

Machines must be maintained,  and sometimes need repair,  but they don’t stage strikes,  or demand days off or extra breaks.   Companies exist to earn money for owners and shareholders by providing goods or services to consumers.  Most people work because they desire the wherewithal to purchase those goods or services.  Progressives believe companies exist to provide workers with jobs, and by extension, the USA exists to employ anyone and everyone who wishes to come here.   One of the problems is that many of those who come here wish only to latch onto the government teat,  and we are far too generous both in welfare assistance and immigration regulations,  few of which we’re currently allowed to enforce.  Wake up,  people!!

I love the Salvation Army…

…because it not only does good,  it   defends itself  when necessary.  When the social media hounds of the LGBTQ community started baying,  spooking the British singer who was to perform at halftime,  the Salvation Army pointed out that it did not discriminate against anyone and went on to educate the singer.   I am inspired to send an additional gift to an organization I already support.   I hope you will,  too.

Cowardly city…

leave a comment »

You can now add Durham,  New Hampshire to the list of town mau-maued by anti-religious lefty activists.   The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is now the Frost Fest and there will  be no  lighting ceremony.  There will also be no wreaths on  the Main Street lamp posts,  and Santa won’t arrive in a fire truck as he used to.

A handful of people said the tree made them uncomfortable.   Instead of cowering under the table,  the town council members should have told them not to attend and thus avoid upset.   If I were a resident of Durham,  I would strongly contemplate running for town council to be rid of the spineless species who currently hold the positions.   Religion and standards must be destroyed so that progressives can rule.   Warning:  I want progressives to be uncomfortable.  I want them to be so uncomfortable that they recede into the darkness.  I want them to be so surrounded by goodness and light and the Christmas spirit that they shuffle off,  moaning in despair.   Will you help?
