Monsters in our midst

These liberal monsters at Planned Parenthood have been exposed for what they all are: monsters.  Monsters who sell body parts to the highest bidder, and lose not a minute of sleep after committing the most hideous murders every day.  In fact, these monsters sleep like babies (or at least, like babies that they haven't murdered and then harvested their organs).

These monsters get half a billion tax payer dollars every year to do this.  If these videos don't convince even the dullest among us to demand that Planned Parenthood be defunded immediately, then our country has perished as was founded. 

There is no other word to describe ghouls whose immorality allow them to sip their merlot and eat their Caesar salads while describing the 'crunchy' procedures they try to avoid when killing babies in order to preserve their desired body parts - these immoral liberals are nothing more than hideous monsters.

Monsters, all of 'em.  Swift and severe accountability is mandated immediately if we have any sense of morality left as a nation.

Donald Trump: he says what he thinks

Love him or hate him, The Donald tells it like it is.  There is no question as to where he stands on an issue of the day, although if you go back in his history, he is much like Obama: his position on things 'evolve.'

He has given gobs of money to the campaigns of Harry Reid (D-Nv), Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca), and other prominent liberals.  "That's the way you get things done," he says.

And he's right.  That is indeed the way you get things done, for better or for worse. 

"Mexico is not sending us its best people" declares Trump.  Right again.  Do you think all of the top notch Mexican doctors, lawyers and architects are flocking across the border?  Not a chance in hell.  They have it good south of the border, and would have absolutely no reason to move up here to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.  Too cold. 

Now, are the poorest of the poor, the criminal gangs and the scum of Mexican society flowing across our southern borders?  You betcha, to use a phrase near and dear to Sarah Palin's heart.  "Many of them are murderers and rapists," says Trump.  True again.  Not even arguable.

Who can really argue with what The Donald is spouting?  Well, liberals will of course argue with even a fire hydrant, but the Donald speaks the truth.  For better or for worse.

Now he's claiming that Sen. John McCain (R - kinda sorta - AZ) is not a hero.  "He's not a hero. He was captured.  I like people who didn't get captured."  Kind of rough on ol' John, but his opinion has merit.  Is everyone who serves in the armed forces a hero?  If so, then the word hero has no meaning anymore.  Just like the days when only special forces and Green Berets wore berets.  They were elite fighting men.  Now everybody in uniform wears a beret (such as PFC Bradley Manning), it's issued to every raw, wet-behind-the-ears recruit in basic training.  The beret no longer has any significance to its bearer.

It used to be that the term hero in the military sense would really only apply to Audi Murphy and his ilk.  You know, the bravest of the brave, such as Sgt York in WWII, the guys who stood on the top of burning tanks and mowed down the enemy with machine guns while his buddies re-established fighting positions, despite the high probability of dying in the process.  Now does the term 'hero' apply to everybody who served in the military, but did not really accomplish anything extraordinary, and at times even made mistakes?  Such as John McCain?  He obviously did something wrong to end up in North Vietnamese's infamous "Hanoi Hilton."  Not that he didn't serve with honor, but "hero?"  I have always chafed at that term as it related to John McCain as well. 

Donald Trump may be a bit too outspoken from time to time.  But I prefer his candor to the out and out garbage and lies that the current administration issues as press releases ('If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.')

We'll see if The Donald can take the arrows during the upcoming campaign. 

So far, he can.

Americans have come full circle in 239 years

239 years ago, the majority of the citizens of what was then the 13 British colonies established in the New World had had enough – King George III had bullied, abused and neglected these hard working folks to the point that they could no longer tolerate the ‘Intolerable Acts’: their government had taxed them beyond any reasonable limits, it trampled on their dignity and was simply milking the industry created by risk takers, and squandering it on interests of the Crown, and to the detriment of the Colonies.


The revolution that ensued was one of a conservative nature.  They did not desire to throw out the western ways and freedoms granted initially by the Magna Carta some five centuries before, but merely to get the current oppressive Royal government off of their backs.


These virtuous, God fearing men and women of the Colonies simply wanted to live their lives the way they saw fit, free of the confiscatory taxes, brutal treatment by English soldiers and created a society based on their God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.


Now, 239 years later, how has that society endured?  The Founding Fathers, who sacrificed their fortunes and sacred honor to make this new society a reality, would not recognize what America has now become.  Indeed, they are rolling over in their graves.


This latest ruling by the Supreme Court establishing a Constitutional ‘right’ for homosexuals to legally marry is just the latest of many destructive rulings coming down from on high from nine unelected judges.  Not only are gays and lesbians now demanding the same legal rights as traditional man/woman couples, they are demanding that their lifestyles command universal respect and acceptance.  Their formerly taboo behavior will no longer be looked down upon, and if someone voices disapproval of their deviancy, these activist homosexuals will demand that these people not only retract their opinion, but receive punishment for saying so.


Socialism was never part of the conversation in the creation of the new society by the Founding Fathers, and if it came up, it was certainly associated with evil.  Now, 239 years later, seemingly the majority of voters in the country are perfectly OK with socialism.  Only 50 years after the Constitution was ratified, a French observer saw the beginning of creeping socialism.  Alexis DeToqueville in the 1830’s predicted with amazing accuracy that once the common man discovered that he could, with a majority of like minded souls, vote himself a portion of the community treasury, without having to contribute a dime to the kitty, the end of the American experiment would follow.

Any benevolent system established by men to distribute common resources will always fail.  Always.  And this is due to one factor of human nature that will always be with us, forever into time untold: Free riders will at every opportunity sponge off the efforts of others.  Free riders have no shame, and feel no remorse gorging themselves on the bread of other men's tables.  The free riders in every benevolent system will inevitably bring the system down, for a number of obvious reasons. 


In 2012, approximately 47% of all working men and women paid no federal taxes whatsoever (free riders).  Many of them actually received money from the government each year in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit, various welfare programs, Medicare, Medicaid and other giveaways.  And Social Security, once considered simply a supplemental form of aid to the elderly population, is now the main source of income for way too large a percentage of Americans who never saved a penny for their retirement.  Instead, they were convinced that the U.S. government would pay for their retirement, while they only contributed a paltry portion of their salaries towards this fund, supposedly preserved in a ‘lock box.’  These contributions of citizens towards the Social Security program have since been raided and spent down to zero and below zero by several generations of scalawag politicians of both parties.  That fictitious lock box has been empty now for decades. 


Although no data is available as of this writing, I would wager that perhaps half the country now pays no federal taxes, leaving the burden to the other half: the takers and the makers.  Our nation of takers, who vote virtually as a block for the Democrat party who panders to them by constantly promising them an ever increasing share of the common treasury in exchange for votes, is now on the brink of insolvency.


Although the GDP of the nation is still able to service our enormous debt incurred by drunken-sailor borrowing by politicians to service their promises of redistribution, at some point in the not-so-distant future, our ability to pay the interest on the approaching $20,000,000,000,000.00 (TWENTY TRILLION DOLLARS!!!) will wane.  Once that day comes, the chickens will come home to roost. 


As the old saying goes, socialism eventually fails because we run out of other people’s money.  Our Founding Fathers are not only rolling in their graves at this turn of events, they are positively spinning in their graves.


239 years ago, the citizens revolted over a government that was robbing them blind, and abusing their trust.  We have now come full circle.  These citizens of America are now looking at virtually the exact same circumstances they found themselves in 239 years ago.


When will we get to the point that we start reaching for our Brown Bess’s, sabers and pitchforks?  As one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson once famously quipped, ‘a little revolution from time to time is a good thing.’
