Trouble for Time

We all know (or should anyway) that our time is fleeting. What we do not realize until we are in the situation, is that when we have a physical setback that slows us down, that mortality clock seems to be ticking even faster.

Watching Europe Disintegrate

The European Union never really was. There were just too many languages, too many different cultures, too many compelling local needs, for a unified Europe as one great nation-state to fully work. Nationalism that is not expansive is a virtue, not a sin. It really is alright for Britons to be "Great British" and Italians to be Italian. I am amazed that Germany has for so long carried Greece on its back and is allowing itself to be culturally erased by a refugee horde. For world peace and stability, it is fine to have sane European countries each pursuing the course that benefits their own the most.

To Fight Fire

The Oakland fire tragedy did not have to happen. A mass of people should not crowd into a building with only one hard to access exit point and no sprinkler system. This might not have been an accident, but more like woeful negligence. The saddest death is one that could have been prevented.

Real Rape Culture

There is no "rape culture" on American college campuses and never has been. If you want to see where real "rape culture" exists go to any swirling mass of male Muslim refugees as the world saw in Cologne last New Year or can see at any time in Malmo. That is where it is not safe to be a woman, not in the dorms at your university but where men have been inculcated that women are mere chattel in the lessons of their faith.

Not Just Attitude

Donald Trump is not about posturing and rhetoric. Trump wants to restore our greatness, including our dominance in manufacturing. If seven million dollars in tax credits saves one thousand industrial jobs in the heartland of America, that is money well-spent.

Embrace New Populism

A populism that protects tradition, sovereignty, and employment is not to be feared or resisted, but welcomed. Having someone in the White House fighting to keep good jobs in America will be a change for the better. Having a leader who wants a secure border will be refreshing. Valuing our Founding Fathers and American tradition instead of mocking them will move a long way to making America great again.

The Same Coin

Barack Hussein Obama is an ideological soulmate to the late Fidel Castro. Obama was somewhat constrained by the Constitutional framework of the US government. Obama could not be as capricious as Fidel was. Make no mistake though, Obama pushed the limit of US law as far as it would bend, politicizing the IRS against his opponents, creating the largest surveillance mechanism ever, sending drones to kill Americans on foreign soil without due process, and issuing more executive orders to bypass Congress than any previous President. Obama is a creature of the Left, which is why he and his administration did not denounce the Cuban despot as Castro passed from this mortal coil.
