The Coming Crash

No one can reliably calla crash, but everyone can prepare for one with a diversified portfolio that includes precious metals and cash. Of course, if hyperinflation occurs, your cash is basically worthless.

Friday, October 20, 2017

Could Be Wrong

I want to be wrong about the coming crash. I feel if tax reform stalls or fails, it will tank US markets. None of Trump's other agenda items have advanced in Congress, so tax reform has a good chance of dying there as well, which would kill the recovery.

Wither the Markets

What goes up must come down. Enjoy these record stock markets now but I fear a correction of epic proportions quite soon.

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

On Travelling Light

I do not think many people under thirty have ever used a map. GPS and systems like WAZE have made paper maps and road atlases redundant. I remember before every long road excursion, my parents would have AAA prepare a Triptik. I can no more imagine going to Triple A for a triptik now than I would ride to Texas in a covered wagon.

The Rising Tide

A rising tide raises all boats, just as trickle down enhances overall prosperity. The best system for distribution of wealth is free enterprise.

Monday, October 16, 2017

Not Rich Alone

If taxes are cut, everyone benefits. If the weathly keep more what they earn, they hire more because trickle down really works.

The Vegas "Conspiracy"

After a massacre in which nearly sixty died, there is bound to be confusion. Initial reports are often later contradicted. Eyewitnesses often turn out to be confused. That does not mean any conspiracy exists!

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Holding the Leash

Whatever the US attempts to contain North Korea, Red China remains the key to holding Pyongyang in check. North Korea will not act against the interests and instruction of Beijing. The North Koreans are a client state to Red China without another sponsor. The regime in Pyongyang can not survive without Red China.

Friday, October 13, 2017

North Korea Threat

Do the North Koreans realize that if they hit Guam with a salvo of missiles, the US would wipe them off the face of the earth, Dear Leader and all?

Thursday, October 12, 2017

On Palestinian Unification

Those who want a world without the Jewish State are celebrating the rapprochement between Fatah and Hamas. Of course, it was always a fiction the Abbas or his predecessor Arafat ever wanted peace with Israel. The PLO and Hamas are both terror groups who want peace without Israel, that is each group is committed to the annihilation of the Jewish presence in the Holy Land.

Really Mr. Clinton?

Is irony the right word to describe Bill Clinton condemning someone for sexual harassment? Harvey Weinstein may be morally repugnant but Bill Clinton surely is no saint.

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The Casting Couch

A Hollywood mogul has just been widely exposed for some reprehensible behavior. I am sure he is not alone in his sleaze in the entertainment industry. Many women in the movie world have reported similar actions by Hollywood power players over the years. Even more disturbing are the allegations from boyhood stars that homosexual pedophiles have forced themselves on boys in the business in their youth. The entertainment industry is filled with Leftists and also may be chock full of sexual predators. Because of the perversion and political pontification, I have not darkened the doorstep of a movie theater in years.

Adult Day Care

Whatever you say about President Trump, you can not blame him for the Iran nuclear treaty disaster. That honor goes to Trump's mealy-mouthed critic Bob Corker.

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Stoking Internecine Warfare

The mainstream media is trying to cause the Trump team to be at each others' throats. First, it is claimed Secretary of State Tillerson called his boss President Trump a "moron". Now, we hear Tillerson hates US UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Maybe Tillerson is the target of fake news because he is effectively representing the United States and our President.

Watching and Waiting

Hopefully, people have heeded evacuation orders and there will be no loss of life in the latest hurricane to hit the US. After Katrina devastated the area about to be hit, you would hope people there take evacuation orders seriously.

Friday, October 6, 2017

Not Another Hurricane!

After several devastating hurricanes and a murderous atrocity, the United States certainly does not need one more blow, yet that is exactly what is about to happen. Pray for America.

The Worst Hypocrites

The elite who travel with armed bodyguards are itching to take away your ability to protect yourself and your loved ones. Don't let them do it!

No Easy Solutions

You can pass all the laws you want. You will never be able to legislate against madness or evil. Alexander the Great conquered the known world, killing thousands and subjugating millions without a single gun. In Rwanda, men with machetes, knives, and spears committed a genocide in the recent past. Guns have been used for evil but also for good in thousands of instances of self-defense. Murder is against the law, but people murder other people with alarming regularity.

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Blame the Shooter

Guns are inanimate objects. A gun has never loaded itself and gone out and shot anybody. An evil man with a warped mentality committed this massacre. The murderer in Las Vegas also was a pilot, who might have killed as many or more innocent people by flying a plane into a building, crowd, or packed stadium. He obviously did not care to survive his murder spree because he killed himself before he was ever confronted by law enforcement. All the gun control laws anyone can enact could not stop every murder because determined people willing to lay down their own lives can do quite heinous things with or without firearms (see Tim McVeigh, who used a bomb to kill many more innocents than the Vegas killer, and the September 11 terrorists who used box cutters and passenger jets to kill three thousand).

Monday, October 2, 2017

Fully Automatic Weapons

Any semiautomatic weapon can have its sear filed down to convert it to be able to fire continuously with one pull of the trigger until the magazine is empty or the belt runs out. It is illegal to file a sear down in this manner, but if you are willing to shoot complete strangers, absolutely innocent people, you obviously have no compunction about breaking the law.

Sunday, October 1, 2017

Disgrace to Themselves

It is a tribute to our nation that we are so free that we do not banish, imprison, or kill peaceful dissenters, no matter how moronic they are. Do you think Russian athletes could criticize Putin and maintain their lives and livelihoods and remain safely in Russia? Millionaire American football players who protest what a rotten place America is bring no discredit to the country. They obviously don't realize it, but they are only showing what fools they are.

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Waiting Not Watching

I may watch a pro football game again, but it will be years from now, when all the America-haters have retired. Think how many other things I will be able to do by freeing up those hours I used to consume watching the NFL.

Friday, September 29, 2017

The Poor Oppressed

How can someone earning over a million dollars per year consider themselves oppressed? I think most people wish they were "oppressed" like that.

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Who Is Racist

I have heard people in the anthem kneeling debate contend that blacks, because they lack power, can not be racist. I think racism is equally prevalent among all races. There certainly are whites with disdain for minorities, but there are minority members who hate whites as well. That is why I have never tried to separate people by race but consider us all individuals within the one human race who should be judged on actions, not skin color.

Alabama's Strange Night

Luther Strange was not a conservative candidate. Strange was not a populist candidate. Strange was not a "Trump man". Senator Strange failed because he was the Washington insider, the establishment choice. Roy Moore is much more down the line rightist than Strange. Moore is also more in the mold of the anti-establishment Trump than the man Trump endorsed in the Republican primary.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The Big Winner

President Trump won big over the petulant America-hating millionaire players of the NFL and the crony capitalist billionaire team owners who were all giving the finger to the fans who used to buy tickets to games. Just as I don't subsidize the Hollywood left by going to their movies, I will never again support the NFL with my dollars.

Monday, September 25, 2017

Football Players Disgust

My uncle and a cousin were killed wearing the uniform of this nation during World War II. I am honored to rise during our National Anthem. Players becoming rich playing a child's game should be honored to rise for the Star Spangled Banner. Would these athletes be making millions playing football in any other country?

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Bravo President Trump

If the privileged pro football players do not know how lucky they are to be paid millions of dollars in an event that could only happen because of America, maybe patriotic Americans should show them by refusing to attend their games, not buying NFL-licensed products, and boycotting their TV advertisers until all the revenue used to pay them dries up. On this, I stand firmly with our President.

Saturday, September 23, 2017

Ailing the Vols

Man, I miss Phil Fulmer and Johnny Majors. They may not have been glamorous coaches, but they did process right. Their versions of UT football almost always defeated the opponents they were supposed to beat. Coach Jones is obviously a work in progress, and he has beaten some tough SEC rivals, but he has never beaten the Crimson Tide and for some reason, seems to have problems with teams he should easily defeat. I wish Coach Jones every success as the Tennessee football coach, but if he does not produce, maybe someone else should take the helm.

Friday, September 22, 2017

Seeing Old Friends

Yesterday, at religious services, I ran into someone I knew in my youth forty-five years ago when I was five years old. I had not seen him in at least a couple of decades. I do not think either of us had changed a bit. We saw each others' children for the first time and that took us back to the old JCC when we met then when we were our kids' age now. I will make it a point not to wait a couple of decades to renew acquaintance again.

Happy New Year

With all the recent natural disaster and tragedy, there might not be much to celebrate, but this is Jewish New Year. May this year be blessed with better health and peace.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Tragedy in Mexico

A powerful earthquake has just devastated Mexico City. Over two hundred are dead. More buildings are in danger of collapse. Pray for Mexico.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Spare Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is already suffering from an economic crisis. The US Territory does not need to sustain a hurricane of any sort. A Category Five with incredibly destructive power seems to be bearing down on the island. Pray that Maria turns away from Puerto Rico.

Monday, September 18, 2017

Banish United Nations

America should leave the UN and make that repository of corruption and antisemitism leave the US. The best thing Trump could tell the General Assembly today with its kleptocrats, autocrats, and Jew-haters is "get lost!"

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Pro Football Plantation

I have heard professional football players in America complain that they are still on "the plantation". Do these athletes realize they are paid vastly more than most workers? They make more than most doctors who are presumptively saving human lives? These players are crazy not to recognize how lucky they are.

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Ready to Condemn

The Prime Minister of Great Britain reserved some of her harshest criticism after the train bombings not for the terrorists but for President Donald Trump. The Prime Minister should focus on protecting her country at which she is not succeeding, not on smearing allies who are leading the fight to destroy the terrorists.

Friday, September 15, 2017

An Infernal Device

An Islamist fanatic detonated a bomb on a London underground train injuring more than twenty innocent people earlier today. This device was meant to kill with the hope that even more would die, trampled in a stampede to escape the tube. This type of attack is difficult to prevent, but thankfully, intelligence agencies have intercepted several similar efforts. Vigilance on the part of the public also helps. It is the infernal notion that killing innocents advances a religious agenda that must be defeated.

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Never Was Conservative

Donald Trump was never on the right. He may not want to ban guns (yet) and has appointed some originalist judges, which Hillary would not have done, but Trump was NEVER A CONSERVATIVE. That is why I supported Ted Cruz, who is an authentic conservative, in the primaries. I am not surprised now that Trump is granting the so-called "Dreamers" amnesty. I feel betrayed that there will apparently not be a border wall between the US and Mexico as Trump outright promised multiple times during the campaign. I ultimately voted for Trump as he is the lesser evil when contrasted with Hillary but feel he has greatly heartened "coyote" people smugglers and Latin drug gangs by backing off his pledge to secure our Southern border.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The National Priority

Restoring our defense, which was gutted by the Obama administration, has to be President Trump's first objective. North Korea, Iran, and jihad terrorists should again tremble at the thought of provoking the US.

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Reach the Moon

It was on this day that John F. Kennedy called for the US to reach the moon. It is the American can-do spirit that helped us achieve that goal. We are still the only nation that has managed that. Russia and Red China have strong militaries, but neither has had a man walk on the moon. Japan and the crumbling EU have scientific achievement of their own, but only the USA has planted our flag on the lunar surface. The US still can achieve much when Americans make it a national priority.

Monday, September 11, 2017

Date of Infamy

On this date, sixteen short years ago, our slumbering nation was attacked in a deed as dastardly as has ever been perpetrated. We still have not erased the threat of aggressive Islamism that killed three thousand of our friends, neighbors, and family members that day. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.

Sunday, September 10, 2017

Red China Culprit

Looking at Red China to force North Korea away from nuclear weapons is like having the fox guard the chicken coop. North Korea is Communist China's pit Yorkie.

Saturday, September 9, 2017

Not Completely Accurate

Climatologists, who know man will make the planet uninhabitable in a few hundred years, can not figure out which coast of Florida will bear the brunt of a hurricane two days out. We really need to heed what they say on man-caused global warming though.

Friday, September 8, 2017

End of War

World War I was sold as the "war to end war". I actually believe war will only end when mankind does, Sadly, conflict has been our natural state with only a handful of years in human history not being marked by war. North Korea's "Dear Leader" may think Americans tremble at the prospect of war. He should watch the movie "Patton".

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Down Goes Frazier

Some media people are hyping hurricane damage like a title fight. They are desperate to somehow blame President Trump and the Republicans for a natural event. What sort of person tries to win political points as people are drowning?

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

The Killer Hurricanes

There is no doubt that this is a perilous hurricane season. Many are claiming that this is attributable to man-caused climate change. This is utter nonsense. Some of the most destructive hurricanes on record occurred before the creation of the internal combustion engine and before the industrial age. The important thing when these storms hit is not pinning blame on a myth but protecting life and if possible, property.

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Wary of War

I have a friend visiting South Korea this week. I would not go there now. Even if America and her allies knock out all of Pyongyang's weapons of mass destruction in a first strike, North Korea has huge numbers of conventional artillery pieces aimed at Seoul. I just hope nothing starts during my friend's trip. Whenever it does start, as I fear is bound to happen, millions will die,

Monday, September 4, 2017

Not Just Bluster

Some people are claiming that North Korea has no aggressive intentions. Some people thought there would be "peace in are time" with Hitler in the late 1930s. How did that appeasement work out for the world?

Sunday, September 3, 2017

North Korean Threats

I would take the threats from Pyongyang very seriously. In fact, I would preempt them by obliterating North Korea's military capacity in a massive first strike.

Saturday, September 2, 2017

Fire and Flood

Circumstances that almost seem Biblical have hit Texas. Many feet of water have engulfed neighborhoods. A chemical plant has exploded. The damage from Harvey now extends beyond the Lone Star State into Louisiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I pray no more lives are lost and that victims are back on their feet as quickly as possible.

Friday, September 1, 2017

Beware High Water

I only drove one time during the May 2010 Thousand Year Flood in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. I was very lucky to be able to return safely after going out for food. Last night, I was forced to drive extensively during the Nashville flooding. Just as an observation- I notice there seems to be a lot of dangerous ponding at intersections- you all be safe out there.

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Life for Looters?

I heard someone saying in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, looters should be given life sentences. I think if they live to enter a prison, they are getting off light.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Harvey Lashes Louisiana

With Texas still reeling, Louisiana is now being hit by Harvey. There at least, after having to contend with Katina, the authorities should have plenty of experience in protecting human life from such a storm.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

The Hidden Danger

Most people probably have never heard of an electromagnetic pulse weapon. North Korea moves closer every day to producing a weapon that could take out America's power grid and virtually all the technology that now runs everything in a single strike. If North Korea successfully launches such an attack on the United States, hundreds of millions could die. While I never want to see war, I would rather have Pyongyang obliterated in a massive preemptive first strike than have my country destroyed.

Monday, August 28, 2017

Houston Washed Away

People have died in the flooding in Texas. There have been billions of dollars in damage. I have never heard of a city sustaining fifty inches of rain in a few days. It really seems to be a Biblical cataclysm. Texans need our support and our prayers.

Sunday, August 27, 2017

Slow Motion Disaster

In Hurricane Harvey, like Hurricane Katrina, just because the winds died down, the danger is not over. Texas needs our help and prayers now more than ever.

Saturday, August 26, 2017

Recovering from Harvey

There is certainly damage in the billions from the hurricane. Many want to help, but I caution there are many who would take advantage of our generosity to line their own pockets. When you give, please give only to reputable charities. The money you give will go to those in need, rather than scammers who only want to help themselves.

Friday, August 25, 2017

Hurricane from Hell

I was aghast back in 1980 when Mount St. Helens erupted that people ignored evacuation orders at the cost of their own lives. More recently,I recall many of those who ignored evacuation orders during Hurricane Katrina wound up dead. Let us hope Texans realized how dangerous Hurricane Harvey could be and got out safely.

Thursday, August 24, 2017

How Many Tweets

How many "Tweets" make a President successful? I do recall all the marvelous ones from Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln- how about FDR and Reagan and their unifying "Tweets"- I think it may be time, for President Trump to slow down on "Tweets" and focus on governing.

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Time of Peace

With all the civil unrest, Americans might be forgiven for forgetting that we are still fighting wars in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. We are occasionally bombing targets in Africa as well.

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Hacking Our Ships

I wonder if Red Chinese or North Korean hackers have a hand in sabotaging the navigation controls of US warships. It is a bizarre coincidence that there have been two fatal collisions between US Navy vessels and merchant ships in recent weeks. Our seamanship can not possibly be that bad without a "little help" from our enemies.

Monday, August 21, 2017

Sunday, August 20, 2017

Not Eclipse Ready

I have not dug out a bomb shelter, built an ark, or stockpiled a century's worth of non-perishable food yet, so surely I will die during tomorrow's eclipse. I hope the rest of you have made all the strategic preparations, so you fare better than this lazy squirrel.

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Reality Show Presidency

While I bet more than ninety percent of Americans have no idea of who Steve Bannon is, I am disappointed to see him go. I am greatly disappointed that President Trump has more Obama holdovers around than conservatives that he has brought into government. I am terribly distressed that almost all the President's advisors now are big government progressives.

Friday, August 18, 2017

Not Succeeded Either

It is impossible for President Trump to repeal Obamacare and fully implement his growth agenda with members of his own party acting as the opposition in the US Senate. I certainly do not blame the President though, I blame the spineless turncoats like McCain of Arizona, Graham of South Carolina, and Corker of Tennessee.

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Not Failed Yet

People that never liked or supported President Trump are now saying because of events in Virginia that have nothing to do with Trump that his Presidency is over. They could not be more wrong. These naysayers are deliberately taking what Trump said about those for or against removing statues of Confederates out of context. He said "there were fine people on both sides" about the proposed removal. He was not saying there are "fine people" among the Nazis and Ku Klux Klan. The President has numerous Jews in his own family and certainly does not have sympathy for Nazis.

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Retreat or Charge

No battle was ever won by those running away from it. I like President Trump refusing to be cowed and continuing to tell the truth about Antifa.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Why Vilify Bannon

Washington elite, the mainstream press, and even some former Trump insiders are trying to crucify Steve Bannon. They are doing this because Bannon knows the populist pulse of the American people and they do not want those workaday Americans to have Trump's ear or a voice in DC.

Monday, August 14, 2017

Honor the Constitution

I am Jewish. Some of my family members were murdered by the Nazis. I absolutely despise Nazis. I am reading friends' social media posts saying that Nazis must not be allowed to speak in America. While I agree that what Nazis say is reprehensible, I have to say that those calling for depriving them of that right have little understanding of the US Constitution. Only controversial speech needs Constitutional protection. If I say "nice weather we're having", no one is going to try to stifle my speech. If I say "I love pasta", no one will try to silence me. If I say something utterly objectionable like "Hitler was right", many people might try to deny my right to speak. It is precisely that kind of inflammatory agitation that necessitates the First Amendment. To love the Constitution, occasionally means tolerating those with no tolerance for our values.

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Cooler Heads Prevail

Can you tell me the last time the well-reasoned argument defeated the clinched fist or the gun?

Saturday, August 12, 2017

Something of Rome

Is America an empire, led by bombast, in its last days? If North Korea is allowed to keep nuclear weapons, the US as world leader is a thing of the past.

Friday, August 11, 2017

War or Peace

The US must declaw the nuclear capacity of North Korea or be subject to extortion by the Pyongyang regime. It really is that simple.

Thursday, August 10, 2017

The Water's Edge

I had always heard "politics stop at the water's edge" meaning that America would present a unified foreign policy. I was aghast when I heard Democrats blaming President Trump for the situation in North Korea. At this time, the US most needs a united front, Democrats and their main stream media mouthpieces are not attacking the North Korean despot but their own President.

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

North Korea War

I fear a shooting war will break out between the US and North Korea. Neither side is bluffing. I feel sorry for the millions of oppressed North Koreans who are about to die because they are hostage to the fanatical regime in Pyongyang.

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Chavistas in America

Huge swathes of today's Democrat leadership would gladly turn the United States into a "socialist paradise" like the one we see in Venezuela today. These Democrats are nothing like JFK or even Ed Koch. They hate achievers and want to tax them out of existence. How many times has a poor person hired you? If you put confiscatory taxes on the wealthy, they can not create the private sector employment they otherwise would and private sector employment has always stood a better chance of enriching people than anything "planned economies" have ever produced.

Monday, August 7, 2017

Death by Dictatorship

Is it not astoundingly sad that in Venezuela with tremendous natural resources, the socialist despots have ruined the country so badly that people are literally starving to death? Venezuela has some of the largest proven oil reserves in the world. There is no reason beyond atrocious mismanagement by government that Venezuelans should suffer the type of privation they have been forced to endure.

Sunday, August 6, 2017

Pity the Venezuelans

Socialists have ruined Venezuela. They have stolen the freedom of the people. Now, these socialists murder to stay in power.

Saturday, August 5, 2017

A Failed Senate

I would not say Trump has a "failed Presidency". I would say that Republicans in the US Senate have not lived up to their promises. Those GOP Senators who let the country down need to be defeated in primaries by real conservatives.

Friday, August 4, 2017

One Way Cooperation

US Senators of both parties seem willing to work together, so long as it hurts President Trump and stymies his agenda. Huge majorities of Americans support the President on immigration, but instead of building walls and closing borders, US Senators are still pushing for an amnesty for illegal aliens.

Thursday, August 3, 2017

Filled With Hate

There is little goodwill toward the opposition anymore in American politics. When you see your opponent as the devil incarnate, there is little chance you will work together for the benefit of America.

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Reality Star Reality

During the campaign, now President Trump was characterized as a non-ideological pragmatist by Rush Limbaugh. I think that was good analysis. Trump was and is no ardent right winger. Trump has been demonized by many, and clearly does have a "huge" ego, but he has been governing as a moderate.

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

How Much Higher

Washington elite from both parties are trying to tamp down Trump. The Federal Reserve that propped up Obama and his socialism is trying to knock down economic growth so Trump receives no accolades. The Wall Street press and supposed wizards like Greenspan are trying to knock the legs from the Trump stock rally, but so far all have failed because less regulation really means more economic freedom which always stimulates growth.

Monday, July 31, 2017

Constitutional or Criminal

When an American imam calls for "the annihilation of all Jews", is he exercising free speech and freedom of religion or inciting to murder? Considering Islam is a legal and even economic system through sharia that is supposed to supplant democracy, I would say this imam was attempting to incite another Holocaust.

Sunday, July 30, 2017

US Against Them

US Senators who voted to keep Obamacare are about as out of touch as a person can be. I and most everyone I know now has such a huge medical deductible that the policies we have amount to nothing but one wellness visit per year and then pray you do not become ill because you are out of pocket for the rest until you have expended thousands of dollars. All this basically is is a catastrophic policy costing me nearly a thousand dollars a month after the "wellness visit". US Senators have exempted themselves from facing this and should be voted out unless they too have to enroll themselves and their families into Obamacare.

Saturday, July 29, 2017

The Leftist Parties

Can you tell me the last vote reinforcing conservatism that Lisa Murkowski or Susan Collins ever made?

Friday, July 28, 2017

Thursday, July 27, 2017

Republicans Lack Conviction

GOP members of the US Senate have little backbone and do not keep their promises. America needs a conservative party that will do what they say they will.

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

A Failed Party

President Trump has not yet been successful in his effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, but it is not he who is failing. It is Republicans in the US Senate who have let their voters down.

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

The Russian Answer

Russia would vastly have preferred Hillary as President. She had plenty of blackmail material the Russians could use against her and she had permitted Russia to take over vast quantities of US uranium.

Monday, July 24, 2017

The Russia Question

Do you really think Russia wanted a man elected President in the US who vowed to strengthen America's military?

Sunday, July 23, 2017

Slaughter on Sunday

Muslims continue to kill each other in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen while most of the world yawns, but a few violent Palestinian rioters are killed by Jews trying to save their own lives and Israel is roundly condemned. It is not really because Jews fought back, but that a Jewish State exists at all that Israel faces calumny.

Saturday, July 22, 2017

The American Weekend

We are weakened as a nation by the Democrat Party that is determined to obstruct President Trump even though they know doing so is slowing growth of the US economy. The Democrats are engaged in obstruction for obstruction's sake and in some instances, because they are essentially Marxists.

Friday, July 21, 2017

McCain as President

America would have been better off and safer if John McCain had defeated Obama. No deal permitting Iran to nuke up would have been made. I doubt McCain would have tolerated Red China rising in Asia/Pacific hegemony. I do not believe McCain would have marched us toward the rationed care of socialized medicine. McCain would have made America more free and more prosperous than the man who defeated him.

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Pray for McCain

I have a friend who lost her husband to the same type of brain cancer with which Arizona Republican Senator John McCain has been diagnosed. Her husband was only 44 when he succumbed to this malignancy. Unless some revolutionary advances in treatment have been made in the last five years, Senator McCain's predicament is dire. I found two of President Trump's remarks on the campaign trail beyond the pale and hence supported Ted Cruz in the primaries. The assertion Trump made about Cruz's father possibly being involved in the JFK assassination was ridiculous. When Trump made the obnoxious comment that he liked heroes who "weren't captured" in a shot a Senator McCain, I thought Trump's chance of winning was gone. Senator McCain is in the fight of his life and now needs a miracle.

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Do Nothing Congress

Do Nothing Congresses are not necessarily bad as they are not passing more laws that end up harming Americans, reaching into our wallets, and restricting our rights. Our current Do Nothing Congress is very bad though because it has not halted Obama's socialism and is not stopping and reversing the damage caused by the last President. Congress is also not advancing the Trump agenda. This Do Nothing Congress may do just enough to restore Democrats back into majorities in both the House and Senate, which will see our current President impeached and finish off the country as it was founded.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The Broken Promise

Good intentions never fed a hungry child. Almost having enough votes never passed a bill. If enough constituents made their voices heard, wavering Republican Senators might have their minds changed and change their votes.

Monday, July 17, 2017

Without a Home

An overwhelming percentage of homeless in Nashville are substance abusers, mentally ill, or both. If you gave them a house, they would not be capable of maintaining it. In the dangerous heat of summer or the cold of winter, many of the homeless would be better off institutionalized.

Sunday, July 16, 2017

In a Void

The Democrat Party has fallen into an abyss of Trump hate. They offer no new ideas, just calumny against the man that defeated them and outrageous incitement saying everything Trump and the Republicans do "will kill Americans". The old, tired script about children being starved and granny thrown over the cliff by the GOP has not and can not work. Republicans breathe the same air and drink the same water as everyone else and do not want the environment befouled any more than Democrats because Republicans realize that we only have one earth. The Democrats have no great compelling candidate and no ideas that excite America.

Almost Always Right

Rush Limbaugh is uncannily accurate in his predictions and insight. He has great ideas. Limbaugh is also so polarizing that he could not be elected dog catcher in most places. That is a shame too because his ideas if implemented would leave the country better off.

Friday, July 14, 2017

Not Always Right

Even Ronald Reagan could be wrong. He was right though much more consistently than his opponents. Trump is no Reagan and is imperfect, but he is manifestly better than those in the so-called "resistance".

Lying in Bed

The mainstream press lies from the moment they wake up. If their lips are moving, chances are whatever they are saying is not down the middle truth but agenda-driven activism. The dinosaur press is willing to resort to the lowest fabrication and most outrageous falsehood to bring down our President.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

The Obstruction Crew

The mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and the Republican establishment really do not want an outsider to succeed with a growth agenda. These Trump opponents will gladly hurt the country so long as the President is diminished.

Menace No More

Wow, a couple of Trump family members met with a Russian. Suddenly, jihad and North Korea are no longer threats to the US and the world, and we can all get about the important work of removing a duly elected President. What a relief to know that with some imagination all the world's problems would suddenly abate if a patriot who has sacrificed much to help his country is frog-marched from the White House.

Monday, July 10, 2017

A Real Thaw

If the US and Russia could truly work together to combat the menace of jihad, the world would be a much safer place. Putin surely plays for the interests of Russia, but when those coincide with what advantages America, there is no reason for Putin and Trump not to work together.

Sunday, July 9, 2017

Lot of Nothing

President Trump's son and son-in-law spoke with a Russian lawyer after Trump secured the Republican nomination. I once had Russian dressing on a salad. Neither fact is noteworthy. Sorry anti-Trumpsters, there is still no impeachment anywhere in sight.

Saturday, July 8, 2017

Not Backing Down

Unlike his predecessor, President Trump stood toe to toe with Putin and did not blink.

Friday, July 7, 2017

A Brilliant Orator

I do not know if anyone could have delivered a better speech than President Trump did in Europe. We have a guardian of liberty in our President the likes of which rarely appear in human history.

War as Virtue

Someone who had experienced a war said, "the only thing worse than winning a war is losing one". We have in North Korea a maniacal sadistic cult of personality state that basks in the starvation, torture, abduction, and slaughter of people. The civilized world should not permit Pyongyang to develop weapons that can obliterate nations. America can not allow North Korea to develop the ability to threaten our existence, for surely, if Pyongyang can destroy our electric grid or Seattle and Los Angeles, they will. No sane and moral nation would permit an insane and immoral country to threaten not merely freedom but life itself.

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Remove a Threat

If there is a rattlesnake at your backdoor, do you invite it inside? I think not. Why are we allowing North Korea to become the mouse that roared without any of the humor? I say blast their offensive capability and hopefully their bloodthirsty tyrannical rulers right out of existence.

Saved the Queen

Can you imagine if we had not rebelled against Britain or if the American Revolution had not been successful? We might be involved in Brexit now, except there would likely never have been a European Union as it exists mainly as a hedge against US economic power. If we were still subjects of her Britannic Majesty, there would likely be no Queen Elizabeth II as Nazi Germany would probably be entering the 84th year of the Thousand Year Reich. Only a free America has saved the world. From supplying Russia to invading Normandy, our treasure, blood, and guts preserved and sustained liberty.

Notion of Exceptionalism

The essential quality that separates America from all other countries is liberty. The United States was conceived as a consecrated Providential enterprise dedicated to human freedom. Not everyone enjoyed equality in the eyes of the law at our founding, but America had expanded rights since 1776 and has become the repository and arsenal of democracy. No other nation or nations really shed treasure or blood for the freedom of others like the US does.

Sunday, July 2, 2017

Just an Opinion

The only thing worse than the Democrats trying to destroy the Trump Presidency are the Republicans who are permitting it to happen. Establishment Republicans are blocking the Trump agenda and doing nothing to defend the President of their own party.

Saturday, July 1, 2017

Opinion of Them

The dinosaur press has impeached their own credibility. Their hatred for Trump has overwhelmed their capacity for reason. The preposterous lies they have told are only accepted by the most gullible or most biased against the President.

Friday, June 30, 2017

Opinion of Us

The dinosaur media could not think less of the viewing public. Thank goodness for James O'Keefe and his team exposing the vicious haters that manipulate the news.

Thursday, June 29, 2017

The Truth Tellers

Honest folk are rarely found working as mainstream news journalists or working for car dealerships. I do not know if every building contractor shoots you straight either. How many politicians tell it like it is or follow through on campaign promises?

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Lying News Network

It seems like all the old-line television news networks manifest massive anti-Trump bias, but CNN has just been exposed by patriot journalist James O'Keefe as the most dishonest. I trust CNN about as much as I trust a scorpion hiding in my shoe.

There Was Collusion

There apparently really was collusion in the Presidential campaign. It was just not between Trump and Russia. First, it was between Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Clinton campaign to make sure no one but Hillary Clinton could secure the Democrat nomination for President,making sure Bernie Sanders in particular had no path to victory no matter how many votes he won. Second, after Hillary secured the nomination, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch apparently gave assurances to Schultz that the investigation into Hillary would not be allowed to go far enough to derail her campaign to win the White House. Plenty of collusion occurred, just not by Trump or the GOP and the Ruskies.

Monday, June 26, 2017

The Great Hoax

Collusion between Russia and President Trump is a malicious hoax. Another hoax is that Donald Trump is a conservative.

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Not Really Different

The saddest aspect of the Obamacare replacement debate is that only a handful of Republicans in the US House and three conservatives and one libertarian conservative in the US Senate do not take it that healthcare is a (new) entitlement. President Trump apparently believes healthcare is a universal right. In this aspect, the GOP mainstream and Democrats are in almost complete accord and we as a nation are careening toward single payer healthcare that will render America a socialist country and give our government sweepingly intrusive power. The government will soon have even more say over what we eat, drink, smoke, and drive. The government will have the ability to lavish care on favorites and deny care to dissidents. Universal care will be a lever to push more gun control. Single payer government rationed healthcare is the gateway to tyranny.

A Dying Party

John F Kennedy, who was an ardent anti-Communist and a tax-cutter, would not recognize the Democrat Party of today. Today's Democrat leaders are darn near Communists. What differentiates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren from Marxists? The shift to the hard Left is not winning the Democrats many elections.

Friday, June 23, 2017

Their Lesson Learned

Rockefeller Republicans took a pounding back in the day when they campaigned as Democrat-lite. The voters realized they need not vote for Democrat-lite when they could elect real Democrats like Jimmy Carter. I think one thing Donald Trump has taught is no matter how you are going to govern, try to sound like Ronald Reagan when pursuing election to office. Mimic Reagan and sound conservative (whether or not you really are) is a lesson GOP candidates have learned, and it is winning them elections.

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Learning Their Lesson

Several years back, the Democrat Party announced they were writing off the white working class. The white working class listened. How has that decision worked out for the Democrat Party?

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Democrats Keep Losing

Last night, the Democrats lost two more special elections, bringing their total in special elections since Trump won the Presidency to zero wins in five attempts. I do not think that as a national party the Democrats realize hating the President is not the strategy to regain power.

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

The Korean Madman

There is no question in my mind that the brutal dictator of North Korea will try to destroy America the moment his slave state develops the capacity to do so. This possibility is intolerable. The US must preempt any aggressive action by Pyongyang, and ultimately must eliminate the despotic regime, with or without the consent of Red China.

Monday, June 19, 2017

Terror Is Terror

Whether it is inflicted by Muslims (which is most often the case) or on Muslims, terrorism must be stopped.

The Crocodile Tears

Some on the Left are less than sincere in expressing sadness over the attempted murder of Republican leaders. Leftists are still cheering the murder of our President in a play staged in New York. Leftists will still riot over conservatives being invited to speak at their universities. The Left is not tolerant and not open to hear what the other side has to say.

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Time for Reflection

Careless words and lies are provoking assassination attempts. Antifa thugs are beating Trump supporters. It is time for the Left to tone it down before the Right has no choice but to defend itself.

Friday, June 16, 2017

Tone Down Rhetoric

Leaders on the Right in America have never accused their opponents of doing the things the Left is accusing. What did the Left expect when they accuse Trump and the GOP of attacking the very existence of humanity and even Earth itself by leaving the Paris Climate Accords that really were only an arrow aimed at the heart of our free markets and productive industries?

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Lies and Madness

The Left lies about all Republican leaders. Unbalanced people take these lies to heart, and some of them are incited to violence. We have free speech in America, but defamation and incitement to violence go over the line.

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

The Unhinged Left

If you say Republicans want to take health care from people, foul the air and water with unchecked pollution, starve children, start wars for oil, and terminate the elderly long enough, some nut is going to take what you say to heart and try to harm GOP politicians. I have no idea of the motivation of the baseball practice shooter who attacked Republican leaders, but all the hate the Left is ginning up with lies could have been a factor.

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Floor or Ceiling

Is the insane Left at its peak or nadir with a play featuring the murder of our President drawing cheering crowds in New York City?

Monday, June 12, 2017

Nothing to Hide

To hear the establishment tell it, the President should welcome the Mueller investigation if he has committed no crime. They are being disingenuous because they know an investigation with so much power and so many resources is able to produce so-called "process crimes".

Sunday, June 11, 2017

Rescind Special Prosecutor

It seems James Comey was trying to trip our President up enough to make a special prosecutor necessary. Instead of rewarding Comey with the Robert Mueller investigation, the genie should be shoved back in the bottle and Mueller should be relieved of investigative authority. Has a Special Counsel or Special Prosecutor ever been rescinded? If not, it should happen now.

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Simply No Interest

I used to love watching NBA games. After hearing some players and notably some coaches spouting off about President Trump and our country, you could not pay me to sit through a game. I have turned off ESPN on TV and rarely visit their website because ESPN has become obnoxiously leftist. I am glad Colin "Kneeler" has not found an NFL roster and hope he never does.

Friday, June 9, 2017

A New Day

The Prime Minister of Britain may hang on to power by the skin of her teeth. President Trump seems safe from impeachment in the wake of the Comey testimony. The world is still turning and the terrorists are still plotting, so life goes on as usual.

Thursday, June 8, 2017

The Old Director

James Comey seems to bask in the spotlight. Now, I see why the President fired him.

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

The New Director

The new leader of the FBI may indeed be an outstanding American, but I can not imagine a more obscure choice for Trump to make. I follow politics and government obsessively, yet I never heard of the nominee for new director. Have you heard of Christopher Wray?

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

To Diminish Security

If you admit thousands of men of military age as "refugees" into your country, some of them may very well be jihadists already and others may be open to persuasion to embark on the path of jihad. If you accept so-called "refugees" from countries that are terror hotbeds (including countries so riven with strife that thorough vetting is impossible), you are putting your citizenry at risk. If you permit imams to radicalize their flocks or to preach hate from their pulpits, you are making yourself less safe. This dangerous road is the chosen route of Western Europeans led by Merkel.

Monday, June 5, 2017

To Enhance Security

London has more CC cameras than anyplace on earth. They are really great at catching folks littering, but did all those cameras stop or slow mass murder? Do you really think surveillance states make us any safer?

Sunday, June 4, 2017

To Sort Out

When you have a religion with a couple of billion adherents, if just ten percent of them back violent means of spreading their faith, you find yourself being targeted by two hundred million fanatics. These fanatics proclaim "they love death more than the infidel loves life" and really mean it. As we saw in London last night, this is a perilous situation. I fear unless Muslims who do not want bloodshed remove the violent jihadists themselves, we really will find the world in a religious war that will kill more than any war heretofore fought in human history.

A Harsh Climate

Why would the US bind its own economy, while every other nation was free to do anything in their own economic interest, no matter how much pollution it caused for the next couple of decades? President Trump was right to leave the Paris Climate Treaty.

Not So Funny

An obscure performer thought it would be funny to take a photograph holding the simulated severed head of our President. I hope this ends her entertainment career.

Kaboom in Kabul

Bloody-minded fanatics have ignited a huge truck bomb and killed at least eighty people in the supposedly safe Green Zone in Afghanistan. The Taliban terrorists have denied responsibility and condemned the attack. Whoever orchestrated the attack must be ferreted out and brought to account.

Time to Forget?

Just because Memorial Day is over, it is never alright to forget or ignore the sacrifices that have been made and are ongoing to secure and vouchsafe our liberty. When I see uniformed military personnel, I have thanked them "for their service to the country" for decades now. It is really the least I can do.

Monday, May 29, 2017

Time to Remember

Memorial Day is a time for sales, but that is the insignificant part. My uncle was killed in a B-24 brought down by the Nazis in World War II- that and hundreds of thousands of other deaths in service to the country is the meaningful part of the day.

Sunday, May 28, 2017

Another Bloody Sunday

The blood of innocents will spill today in Syria, Afghanistan, and probably Iraq. Jihadists have attacked in the Philippines as well. Who knows when the slaughter will end?

Solution to Violence

People and governments use force because it is effective. The only answer to violence is sufficient force to stop it.

Ban on Bitcoin

If illegal activities on the web are contingent on criminals being paid off in Bitcoin, then would it not make sense for governments to ban Bitcoin?

Thursday, May 25, 2017

No New Reality

I hate to tell you, but we have been living under the threat of jihadi terror since the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993. The subsequent and more deadly attacks are just a continuation of a pattern we will have to contend with until we defeat violent Islamism.

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

To Eradicate Terror

The Imperial Japanese and the Nazis were defeated in World War II. It took a total effort at he war front and on the home front. That same level of commitment is going to be necessary to vanquish Islamism. All the candle lightings and group hugs in the world will not defeat jihad. Hard men doing hard things will be required to win. Those things will not be pretty and innocents inevitably will die, but that is the nature of war.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Act of Barbarism

Blowing up a bunch of young people including children, who were simply out enjoying a night of music, solves nothing and is truly evil. The bomber killed himself, but those who inspired the mass murder (including those who made the bomb or told the bomber how to make it) must be found and dealt justice.

Monday, May 22, 2017

Time for Peace

With the looming threat of Iran, now might be the ideal time for Sunni Muslims and the Jewish State to forge a lasting peace. The largest part of advancing peace would be to have the incitement against Jews by Muslims cease.

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Saudis Versus Iran

Iran is the rising threat to the Sunni Middle East, the Jewish State, and really the whole non-Shia world. A stronger Saudi Arabia interested in self-preservation will serve to contain Iran's hegemonic dreams.

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Joining Saudi Arabia

In areas where US and Saudi interests coincide, there is no reason not to work with the Kingdom. In the Middle East, the enemy of my enemy can be a valuable ally.

A Guilty Politician

Which political leader facilitated the sale of almost a quarter of US uranium to elements within the former Soviet Union? (Hint- it was not Trump.)

Thursday, May 18, 2017

A Vengeful Prosecutor

I sure would not want to have done something in the past to tick off a man later vested with virtually limitless investigatory power. Robert Mueller is like Leo DiCaprio on the bow the Titanic- he is "king of the world" today.

The Watergate Moment

Trump told Comey "Flynn is a good guy". Our dinosaur press sees its "Watergate Moment". Trump did not obstruct justice. You just happen to have a feeding frenzy in an echo chamber.

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Totally Fake Media

The Leftist propagandists that comprise the mainstream press are doing all that they can to bring down the President. Do you think FDR might have shared classified information with Stalin that was beneficial in stopping Hitler? Trump, who as President has the power and right to declassify, has done precisely the same by sharing intelligence with Putin to help in the fight against the Islamic State. There is no crime here and no scandal!

Monday, May 15, 2017

The New Director

Trump will need to select someone with unquestionable integrity to lead the FBI. Christ would be a suitable replacement for Comey, but He is apparently otherwise occupied.

Impeachment in Cards

There was no collusion between Donald Trump and Russia to secure the US Presidency. The Russians did not cast or count any votes. None of that matters though as there is a feeding frenzy in the press and within the establishment that maybe they can remove a candidate who ran successfully as anti-establishment for the nation's highest office. It will only take a handful of spineless Republicans to join the vicious Democrats to see a duly elected President impeached without any real justification.

Thursday, May 11, 2017

The New Question

Is the firing of the FBI director a tempest in a teapot or a Teapot Dome Scandal big enough to sink a Presidency?

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

James Comey Ousted

When the FBI Director becomes the story something has gone wrong. Prior to Comey,if Americans could name a FBI leader at all, that would have been J. Edgar Hoover. Whatever Comey did or did not do,Americans were learning Comey's name in the context that he allegedly manipulated the last Presidential election. Comey may be a wonderful and capable human being, but the FBL definitely needed a fresh start.

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Waiting on Trump

We may find out we elected another big government East Coast liberal. If Trump creates a single payer (government) health care system, he is little different than Hillary. If Trump sticks to the Paris Climate Accord, he is doing precisely what Hillary would have done. If Trump continues intervention in Syria, he is doing the neo-cons bidding, which is exactly what Hillary would have done. It looks like we must have elected Hillary.

La Belle France

France as we know her is more or less dead. The French police say there are not "no go zones". What they actually mean is that so long as they go in great force, police can still enter certain Muslim neighborhoods, not to patrol, you can not devote that much resource to simple policing, but to investigate a particular terror plot or make an arrest. Tourists are scared (justifiably) to visit a country where people are slaughtered in clubs and groceries or run over and killed by the dozen as they celebrate a public event near the beach. The French just rejected a politician who would have waged the fight necessary to protect them in favor of a politician who wants to "make nice" with Islamists and who, unlike the opponent he and the press and Merkel defeated, is willing to accept more "refugees". France might yet be rescued but only if the mentality of appeasement there is defeated by the realization that self-preservation hinges not on surrender but on resistance.

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Filled with Doubt

I wonder how France will fare with an appeaser of Islamist fanaticism in power. Le Pen would have been bad for French Muslims and French Jews but would have saved traditional France and actually stood with Israel against terror. Macron will stand with the Palestinians and continue to try and placate the so-called "refugees" streaming into the moribund EU.

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Without a Doubt

Donald Trump is little different on the Palestinian issue than any previous US President. Trump just met with Abbas and had kind words for the bloody-handed terrorist. I think there is almost no chance Trump will follow through on his campaign promise and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump can not pressure the Palestinians to make any concessions, because the Palestinians have no interest in compromise with Israel. They only want to obliterate the Jewish State. Consequently, all US pressure will fall on Israel to give in to Palestinian demands that only make more violence inevitable as the Palestinians are more than willing to accept Israel being chopped up in the stages plan that Arafat always wanted and that began with Israel's withdrawal from Gaza.

Lemon and Lime

My two year old daughter really seems to like lemon and lime. We asked for some citrus to squeeze in our waters and the toddler really wanted to taste the fruit. Amazingly, she said she liked it! Who would think a baby would enjoy something that sour?

The Prosperity Illusion

If you could live well on a couple thousand dollars in 1900 and on $20,000 a year in 1950, are we really better off today if we are pulling in six figures? When a car was a couple of grand and a nice home under thirty and one income could easily support a family, were we worse off than now when both parties in a couple working full-time can not even retire their student debt?

A Dangerous Job

A gas station clerk was murdered about a mile from my home. I had friends back in college who worked at gas stations. They all experienced armed robberies. It is sad that people trying to make an honest living face that level of threat.

Averting a War

I do not know if war with North Korea can be forestalled. I do not even know if it is desirable. Everyday, North Korea edges closer to being able to inflict carnage on the American homeland with ICBMs and possibly nukes. So long as a madman runs North Korea, this development of potentially world ending weapons is intolerable.

A Problem Growing

Have you ever noticed that certain states, particularly the high tax Northeastern ones, tend to be bleeding people? A lot of New Yorkers have moved to lower tax, warmer weather states. Unfortunately, some of these transplants bring Leftist sympathies with them and vote for the same policies that are ruining their home states.

Saturday, April 29, 2017

A Growing Problem

In the Nashville I grew up in, a lot of people did not even lock their doors. Then we started to grow into a big city. Marcia Trimble was abducted in the mid-1970s and all of a sudden everyone was locking their doors. Now that Nashville is a growing metropolis, we hear about home invasions on our local news telecasts. Locking your doors no longer seems enough.

Friday, April 28, 2017

Some Misplaced Confidence

If you thought Donald Trump was going to deliver on his campaign promises (i.e. ObamaCare replacement and the Mexican border wall), you must be sorely disappointed so far. Maybe Trump is just a confidence man.

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Hundred Days War

Donald Trump has a rather mediocre record at this point, not because Democrats have opposed him, that was to be expected, but because the GOP establishment has not pushed forward much of what Trump wants. Trump has blamed the Freedom Caucus to an extent, but it is not these Republican conservatives who have tripped Trump up. It is the elite moderate/centrists in his own party who will not expend any political capital to move Trumpism forward, but quite a bit to dial Trump back.

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

North Korea Bombs

Trump had better rid the world of North Korea's offensive capability and even more offensive leadership before North Korea develops and unleashes ICBMs against Hawaii and the US West Coast.

Never Even Been

I will not pretend to be an authority on hockey. I have been on skates twice in my life (once ice, the other roller, when I was a child). I have never even attended a hockey game. All that being said, I hope my hometown team defeats the teams from other towns as a pro championship for Nashville would be a first in any sport.

Friday, April 21, 2017

An Historic Series

My hometown hockey team just swept the (formerly) mighty Blackhawks. This means nothing going into the next round of the playoffs. By entering the final tournament with the worst record, Nashville has assured itself visitor status in any (every) upcoming series in 2017. The Predators are a decent hockey team but the odds are still stacked against them.

To Avoid War

There is no way to prevent a war when evil fanatics are determined to subjugate or destroy you. (See North Korea and Iran- these two states demonstrate by the brutal oppression of their own people what they would gladly do to the rest of the world.)

A Wicked Wednesday

A terror threat to disrupt France's election has been interrupted by several arrests. A former footballer has offed himself in prison on the day his former team is supposed to visit the White House to celebrate their last championship. All's right with the world (or maybe not so right).

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Two for Tuesday

The Facebook murderer has done the right thing and killed himself. My hometown Nashville Predators took a three to none lead over the mighty Chicago Blackhawks.

Turkey's Hitler Minor

Erdogan will win his dictatorial power referendum. The budding despot has characterized his opponents as "Nazis". He has called Western Europeans who would not give him free reign to manipulate Turkish expatriates on European soil "Nazis". He allowed a terror-supporting flotilla to sail from his shores to breach the Israel's self-preservation blockade of Gaza and when Israel had to use lethal force to protect Jews trying to stop the Mavi Marmara terror ship, Erdogan called the Jews the aggressors. Erdogan sometimes refuses to permit the US to wage the war on terror from US bases on Turkish soil. Erdogan would not let the US attack Saddam Hussein from those Turkish bases. Erdogan allowed the sale of oil by the Islamic State. Erdogan always denies Armenian genocide was perpetrated by Turks in the twentieth century. There is a real and dangerous tyrant that has smashed dissent against him about to assume even more power in Turkey.

A Huge Wreck

We were caught in a two hour traffic jam on I-65 South in Bowling Green, Kentucky after a three car pileup. I saw smoke and flame shooting into the sky just as I passed the last exit before the scene of the wreck, but before I could react and pull off the highway. A life flight helicopter landed on the highway to transport some of the casualties. I pray everyone survives from the crash.

Please No Re-accomodation

Watching the United Airlines video, I am reminded of the "special treatment" reserved for Jews by the Nazis in World War II.

Attacking the Sanctuaries

More grotesque attacks against innocents have just been staged by fanatic Sunni jihadists. Attacking Christian worshippers has become routine in much of the Arab world. In fact, Christian life is being extinguished across the Arab world. There is not enough being done in the Christian West to protect Christians in the Arab and broader Muslim world. The civilized world must protect the lives of religious minorities everywhere.

All Are Swedes

When an Islamist murderer plows over more than a dozen innocent people in Sweden, every civilized person becomes a Swede.The Swedish people become the New Yorkers of September 11, 2001. We are all in solidarity that fundamentalist fanatics must be stopped.

Brave New War

I am having a hard time understanding how Syrians killed with Sarin are more dead than those murdered with gunfire or barrel bombs. No doubt Assad is what W (Bush) called an evil-doer, but I do not think we need to start World War III over less than a hundred dead Syrians when several hundred thousand others had already been butchered with barely a peep.

In Our Time

I do not think there will be peace in our time. It is against the nature of too many people.

Horror of Gas

A chemical weapon attack has apparently occurred in Syria. If true, this is a war crime. I do not know if Assad launched the gas attack, but if he did, he must be held to account.

Stand with Russia

In the battle against Islamism, the US must stand with Russia. After today's train massacre, Donald Trump should express his solidarity in the fight against the barbarism of Islamic terror.

Dump Chris Wallace

I can not stand to watch FOX News Sunday because Chris Wallace attacks Republicans with Democrat and Soros talking points without ever holding the feet of Democrats to the fire. Wallace is a lying Leftist partisan.

Do you think people can survive without cable TV and the Internet?

Last and Finest

I read the obits and find another World War II vet has died. Do you think the eighteen year olds of today could overcome Hitler and Imperial Japan?

Rattling the Chains

I lost my medical insurance coverage because of ObamaCare as my issuer stopped doing business in my home state. Before the insurance provider left Tennessee though, my premiums more than doubled, and I had a deductible instituted that I never faced before. To comply with the mandate, I found a policy with a company still doing business in Tennessee. It is prohibitively expensive, but ObamaCare remains the law of the land, and I will abide by it rather than face a fine. The GOP, including Trump, promised to repeal ObamaCare, but the Republicans to this point have not shown the ability to keep their word or govern.

Lying Through Teeth

Russia did not win Trump the election. One person won Trump the election- that was Hillary Clinton herself.

Like a Stone

US financial markets are dropping precipitously as it becomes apparent that Donald Trump can not keep his campaign promises. Our portfolio doubled under Obama and is crashing under Trump. How do you like "winning"?

The Southeastern Conference

It is an odd thing that three of the final eight teams in the NCAA Basketball Tournament are from a so-called "football conference".

The Left Lies

The Left, including the mainstream media, constantly lie. They lie because they have no compelling arguments to move their agenda forward. They lie about the Right, who they hate. They lie about Trump.

Real Health Reform

ObamaCare is for many an unaffordable but mandated insurance plan, that still forces recipients to pay out of pocket for everything but one routine wellness visit a year. Yes, catastrophic care in many cases is indeed covered, but most people (thank goodness) never reach the level of sickness to surpass their deductible. ObamaCare is an expensive mess. It definitely needs to be repealed.

A Lying Committee

Take what you hear from "intelligence committees" with a grain of salt. Intelligence by its very nature involves subterfuge, concealment, and outright falsehood. I think obviously someone was listening in on Team Trump and disseminating what could hurt Trump to the press. I think the Democrat Adam Schiff is doing all he can to keep the heat on Trump and the light off Democrat dirty doings.

No Death Panels

I am deeply disturbed that Ezekiel Emanuel, who is the father of the "complete lives system" death panels is being consulted by President Trump regarding the Trump Care/Ryan Care plan. I have heard the Independent Payment Advisory Board (death panels) remain in the proposed new plan, meeting with Doctor Death Emanuel seems to confirm this. Trump used to be pro-abortion, but now claims to be pro-life. If he is pro-life, Trump must make sure any Republican plan that becomes law does away with the death panels!

Way of Death

Those Islamists committed to jihad say "they love death, more than we love life". They really mean it. There was Islamist terror perpetrated in London today. Earlier, terror struck France. These fanatics really despise our freedom and our way of life and gladly kill and die to attack Western values.

The Democrats Implode

The Democrat Party going after Judge Gorsuch is like the racist refusing a blood transfusion from a person of another race, even though the transfusion would save his life. Neil Gorsuch is clearly not a right-wing bomb thrower or anti-woman, yet that is how the DC Democrats are portraying him. Gorsuch gained unanimous approval of the Senate to become a Federal judge. Now, it looks like he will receive few if any Democrat votes in his confirmation to the US Supreme Court, which will force Republicans to implement the nuclear option, and will prove the Democrats offer nothing but "no", without any rational basis.

Having No Steam

I have little to say today. I am disgusted by the Leftist politicians and the mainstream media. We are in an existential conflict with expansionist Islamists. North Korea is fanatic and ready to pounce. Red China and Russia are not our friends. Yet, all the press seems to want to do is discredit the man with his hands on the nuclear button, the man charged with protecting us.

Reign of Lunacy

The best thing that could happen for the people of North Korea would be the elimination of their leadership. They have enslaved, starved, and murdered their people long enough.

Pray for Melissa

My friend Melissa Waddell Liedholm is very sick and needs prayers. She is amazingly generous. She once gave a car to a needy family, though she was by no means rich in the material sense. When man's healing is not succeeding, the Lord delivers Grace and Mercy.

The Local Media

Have you ever noticed that when a Republican politician visits that the local press finds toothless, dirty-looking people who can not articulate an idea to interview as supporters of the GOP politician? Have you noticed the press spends as much or more airtime talking to the handful of protestors as they do giving GOP supporters who number in the thousands at these events time on TV? Have you noticed the press seeks out opponents of the GOP who are highly educated and polished speakers and lets them make their point, rather than the anarchic rabble that comprise most of the street protestors against Republicans, who could not score points against Republicans if you put them on mike the rest of their lives? Donald Trump visited Nashville to a groundswell of support but watching local Nashville media, you would think that most Tennesseans are against the President.

Welcome President Trump

Donald J Trump is visiting my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Curiously, Trump will be laying a wreath at the tomb of Andrew Jackson, the father of the Democrat Party. I hope the President enjoys his stay here and comes back often.
