About Mike

Background is in Media with a little History Major thrown in just to be annoying.

Short, Loud, and Outrageous

First… If you’re not watching tonight’s debate, you’re paying attention. Tonight is the first debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. That should be enough to get you to watch.
Second… there is a pre-debate going on about earpieces. Apparently, the Trump Camp asked for a third party inspection of the candidates’ ears to make sure there were no earpieces inserted allowing for outside communication which might assist the master debaters in answering questions.

So hear’s my spin: Brilliant!

This is classic political manuring. If the Biden Camp refuses then it will be assumed he has an earpiece in because he can’t supply his own answers. If they allow it, then he will be on his own upon which he will not be able to supply cogent answers.

Hear’s something to watch for; Trump can defeat the earpiece possibility by keeping all of his answers short, loud, and outrageous. The earpiece only helps 1. If you can hear it, and 2. If you have enough time to receive information before you’re expected to reply. If Trump’s answers/statements are short and loud then Biden will not be able to hear his Cyrano and even if he can he will look like he’s having a mental breakdown while he tries to figure out what is arriving in his ear while the audience awaits. Trump can just stare at him like the rest of the country waiting for him to regurgitate a response. Just a huge pregnant pause while the camera zooms in on Old Joe’s befuddled look while he’s trying desperately to concentrate… and as the train wreck progresses it will look like a cascade of errors.

So there you have it.


I Have Not Forgotten. I Will Not Forget.

This morning I had a flashback. I was arriving at a breakfast meeting I didn’t want to be at. I had the radio on. I was cold. Just before I turned the car off new broke of a plane hitting the World Trade Center. I immediately thought of terrorism, not world war as the target clearly had more psychological impact than military value, but also remembered that it was not the first time a plane had hit a tall building in New York. I held out that it could be a terrible accident.

The news had made it into the meeting and cut it short. That was the only good news I had that day.

Upon returning to the office someone had a monitor up with a news feed. Within a few minutes i watched live as another plane hit the second tower. There was no doubt left.

I called it a day and left to find my wife. Her parents were in town and when I arrived at the house they told me what I already knew. Once I determined everyone was safe and accounted for we took our cars out to fill up the tanks. We got back and hunkered down for the day listening intently as it all unfolded.

Our home at the time looked out over the city. I walked out back with my father-in-law and took in a empty sky. Not even jets from the local base were up as far as we could see. Truly a unique experience.

It seemed that the day progressed very slowly. We heard about the Pentagon being hit. We have relatives working there. One of our relatives survived to have her entire department killed. This would become a common story.

The rest of America had also woken up to death on our shores. They were spending the day the same as we were… watching it live.

Evil exists.

Let there be no doubt.

I haven’t Forgotten. I will not Forget.


The Bureaucracy Amendment

(101513)

I’ve decided to address the single biggest problem we have in the United States.

Bureaucrats.

I’ve proposed in the past we term limit Bureaucrats to reduce their unanswerable and unelected hold on power while returning their ‘highly advanced level of expertise’ to the private sector.  My baseline suggestion remains a 6-year contract with a limit of 2 such contracts within one’s lifetime.

But I’ve also come to the conclusion there needs to be a bit more…  and without question your suggestions on additional rules are welcome.

While a contract employee of the Federal Government you

May Not:

Vote, Donate to or Work for any political candidates’ election or fundraising efforts.

We certainly wouldn’t want any conflict of interest.

Wear any Religious Identification.

Since we are living under a fabricated Freedom From Religion mentality it seems only appropriate.  While religious symbols such as a cross, crescent moon or pentagram go without saying, this requirement will also include name tags, tattoo’s or placards displaying names; Mathew, Mark, Luke, John, Mary, Jesus or Muhammad. A longer list of names such as Judas, Simon, Peter, Paul, Michael, Sarah, etc.. will be held as reviewable and could be subject to prohibition on a case by case basis.

Opt-out of all Union Membership or Union Representation and/or compulsory dues.

Union remaining available for consideration must not be located on the North American Continent and are forbidden from any political, organizing or lobbying activities within the United States.

You will relinquish any Reasonable Expectation of Privacy.

In fact, all of your telephone/cellphone calls, e-mail, medical records, bank accounts, Facebook page and 3 degrees of all those you have had any contact with will be streamed live for anyone at any time to “scan” in order to make sure you’re not doing anything wrong.  (Seems fair since that’s what you’re doing to us.)

You will not have any input regarding your salary.

The American people will get to vote online… quarterly… in order to determine and support the “fairness” of your compensation. The same will apply for the type of vehicle you will be allowed to drive and the type of home you live in. Your public utility use, required exercise and salt intake will also be managed by this same Democratic means.

You may not Eat at your or anyone else’s home.

Meals prepared within the confines of a domicile are not regulated and your work, whatever it may be, is far too important to be allowed to take such a risk.  You will be eating out… a lot.

You may not Voice any dissent to the current Administration. 

This shouldn’t be difficult as the odds are you were not allowed to vote anyway.  But just in case, you will have to follow the same rules as our military.

You must Opt-out of the Communal Health Care System. 

This is because you will be leading by example… and it can’t be fair until we all have crappy health care, Starting with You.

You must Opt-in to any Really Super-cool, and ‘Fair’, ideas you come up with and want to force on someone just to try them out.

Think of it as a “What’s Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander” clause.


Flash: Boney Finger Waiving.

This morning in a rushed sense of urgency famous Rhodes (Notorious Racist) Scholar and Former President of the United State William Jefferson (Name of horrid Slave Owner) Clinton issued the following statement:

“…I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again: I did not travel that island, Miss Maxwell. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time; never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people. Thank you…”

In other news, Democrats don’t care.

(Editors note: This might not have happened as depicted above in subject or content… but there is a probability it will. Democrats not caring did happen and remains true as of the tapping of this flash.)


Maybe New york got it Right on Corona Virus?

Presidential Candidate Andrew Cuomo Gov. NY (D)

It seems I’m having to change my mind more often these days…
I recently hit play on Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 segment on PBS where he says the New York Response was the correct one.
Looking at the current stats that appears to be true!
After reviewing my previous critique of Governor Cuomo and the state’s reaction to the global pandemic I feel I have to retract my strongly voiced criticism. It looks like the Governor’s approach of Early, Often and Up Front has left him the darling of the Democrats.

Gov. Cuomo’s strategy was two-fold. First, He demanded the filthy, disease-riddled, urine-soaked New York Subway system remain open specifically because those who would be in First and Direct contact with those elderly individuals possessing pre-existing conditions could get to work unobstructed. Second, by Forcing New York Nursing Homes to admit COVID-19 Positive elderly into their facilities. By doing both, the Governor was able to literally decimate the most vulnerable and likely to die from the virus…
This plan resulted in well over 30,000 lives lost almost immediately.
Early, Often and Up Front.
Once the most likely to contract and pass away from the disease had done so, the Subway was sanitized (for the first time in 100 years) and the order forcing nursing homes to admit infected elderly into their midst was rescinded.
But there is the genius.
The highest risk population most likely to contract and subsequently pass away from the disease had been dramatically reduced leaving far fewer remaining to perish from it today. Now the numbers look promising… so much so that the Governor is receiving praise from Dr. Fauci. (Is Fauci a German name? I’ll have to look into that.)
If one must judge from current lead stories emanating out of New York and landing on headlines across the country you can only end up where I am now. New York got it Right on the Corona Virus thanks to the leadership of Andrew Cuomo.


Keep them Closed!

It’s always fun for me to take an opposing view point… so here we go.

Keep the Public Schools Closed.

Forever.

One of the best things we can for this Amazing, Glorious, Miracle of Self Government is to keep the Schools Closed permanently. When you hear Leftists lament that we cannot afford to have our children out of their control for one minute longer, it should be a cause for pause.

I would offer the best thing you can do for your children, and the rest of us, is to keep them at home and away from our Institutes of Indoctrination. I’m willing to concede that some of you may not be proficient at certain subjects, but what you do know is more than your kids get at school. If you’re not aware, there are actually classes for ADULTS called “Adulting”. These classes teach your ADULT children how to do things like buy groceries, change a tire, tie a tie, cook and egg, balance a check book, wash the dishes, do laundry, mow the lawn, bathe… etc, etc. It’s an indictment of all of us. Keeping them home would, at a minimum, teach them how a home is run. It would also save us from having to deprogram them before they turn into (oddly obese or oddly still skateboarding) Bomb Throwers for Marxists. It’s a Win-Win!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating your potentially precious bundle Socialist Disaster should be denied an education. I just think it should come from you… first. Then if you want to sign them up for online courses (from home) that would be terrific. I don’t care so much about the teachers having to earn their pay by teaching courses online for a fee. Why? Because the possibility of their being monitored, or better yet recorded, by a parent goes up 100% thus decreasing the chances they feel safe enough to push their Hegelian World View on our kids. If they chose to continue doing so it would make for great parent teacher meetings and even better Television. Wouldn’t it be fun to whip your phone out and just keep hitting the rewind on their latest Anti-Capitalist Diatribe on the highest volume setting? Over and over and over…

So Keep them Home. Have the Teachers teach remotely and up the class size… like the rest of us have to do in our jobs everyday, every month, every year. Save your kids from a dystopian future, the next plague and the soft slavery of socialism.

I hear you… “But Mike, But Mike,, who’s going to babysit my kids during the day?” I don’t know. Buy a dog? (not a cat, cats are terrible chaperons) Stop seeing Public Education as the “Publicly Funded Babysitter” which is what got us here in the first place? Stay Home like you’re doing now and make a living?! Here’s a suggestion, have your children master their brand new skill set like doing laundry and mowing the yard, etc? It would be the perfect time to teach them how to cook a bowl of cereal for themselves and wash the dishes afterward. You might even learn something… weird, right? You could end up learning your kids names without having to stop and think about it! Crazy!

And, of course, we should demand the return of our taxpayer dollars that kept the hallowed halls of Socialist thought successfully producing the worst of us. If your kids are going to end up Mini Marxist Tyrants like ANTIFA and BLM, I would prefer they do it with your permission and your dime. I already blame you (you know who you are), but all plausible deniability needs to be removed… completely.


Full Court Press

California is making a Mad Dash to Insolvency… This new push to keep LA County closed for business is nothing short of the prelude to a Demanded Bailout from the Federal Government (Read YOU and ME).

Governor Newsome (CA-D) and Mayor Garcetti (CA-D) see COVID-19 as their opportunity to demand a bailout from the American Taxpayers for almost 100-years of failed Socialist policies and Profoundly Wasteful Spending by a Corrupted State.  California is Everything that is Wrong with Democratic Socialism.

This move to completely destroy LA County is not about safety, it’s about driving the plane into the ground as fast and as hard as possible.  This closure extension is nothing more than a cynically opportunistic political ploy designed to remove any obstruction to a Massive Federal Bailout of what can only be considered Criminally Fiscal Behavior, approved then ignored by an Elitist Voting Base.  The ‘I’m Smarter than you Kids’ have dug a hole they can’t get out of… as we have been warning them they were doing.

Folks… we are being played for chumps.

So here we are… are we going to allow that to happen?

 


Socialism is Dead!

Or is it?

The Wu-Tang Flu has parted the clouds which have long darkened our skies and shined the bright light of Truth upon us! Hallelujah!
Here’s what we know:

Don’t use Public Transportation.
Don’t use Public Education.
Don’t use Public Restrooms.
Don’t use Public Streets.
Don’t use Public Facilities of Any Kind… and Certainly Don’t Count on them to work as Promised.

Why? Because you’ll DIE. 

And, if in the off chance you don’t die, you’ll kill Granny just by visiting her…  you selfish, murdering, toilet paper hoarding A-Hole!

The lesson here is, buy your own car, own your own home, cook your own food, don’t pick your nose, poop in your own bathroom, home-school your kids or use private schools with small class sizes, take ownership of the streets and roads around you as well as your communities like… we… used… to.  Live at your own risk.

Of course, the “Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste” crowd is screaming for MORE GOVERNMENT! But I ask you, how is that Universal Health Care working for the Italians, Germans, French, Indians, Iranians, Chinese, etc. etc? Do the Mass Grave/Burn Pits come ‘free of charge’ because of their ‘amazing’ health schemes?  Yes, yes they do.  Cool! We definitely need some of that…

In the end here’s what the takeaway is, we might as well have been attacked.  Look at this like WWIII.  This virus appears to have been crafted intentionally if not released intentionally. 

We as a nation are more vulnerable now than ever in history exactly because we have abdicated our personal responsibility to nameless, faceless, bureaucrats who happily accept that power over us.  We have chosen via the people we have elected to live at everyone else’s risk.  You all know the old adage, “When Everyone Owns It, Nobody Owns It.”  Look around… it’s true.  This very horrible, bad, terrible idea is being demonstrated for all the world in real-time.  

Now there is no time.

So the Socialism that has permeated modern America should now be dead for all time.

Or, will we collectively beg for more of what got us here?

And, hoard Toilet Paper…

(As an aside, you might also note that living in a Big City is a bad idea.  Pushing your Grandparents into a Nursing Home is a bad idea.  Using Public Schools as Baby Sitters is a bad idea.  Not Saving a Dime is a bad idea.  Taking your sh*tty politics to places that are doing just fine and changing them into the sh*thole you just had to escape from is just Bad.  Hoarding Sh*t you can’t eat or has a short Shelf Life is also Ba… no, that’s just stupid.  I hope you enjoy every spoonful of your piping hot bowl of toilet paper.  As I tap this out it becomes clear how we got here.)

Stephen King is Still Alive

File Photo- Stephen King

 

Today I learned that Stephen King is still alive.

It was by accident as I happened to be reading a story regarding the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump and the very real possibility that some Democrats may not vote in favor of all or any of the charges/articles being presented to the Legislature for consideration.
Apparently Jared Golden (D-ME) has voiced the intent to vote for only one of the articles. Being that “ME” stands for Maine and that is where Mr. King is buried… sorry, not yet buried as of today… it hit close to home so to speak.
It turns out that President Trump’s use of power to dismantle 70 years of socialist utopian enterprise is offensive to Mr. King and as far as Mr. King is concerned represents an abuse of power. It also seems that Mr. King is in favor of U.S. Politicians forcing foreign companies to install their family members onto Boards of Directors which supply annual incomes in exchange for influence in U.S. policymaking. And because of this Mr. King recognized that President Trump’s request to investigate such behavior in the spirit of positive cooperation between the United States and Ukraine is clearly extortion on the part of President Trump.
All of that being said, Mr. King is adamant that Representative Golden (D-ME) vote for BOTH articles of impeachment because this Anti-Socialist Tyrant in the White House must be stopped.  If Rep. Golden decides not to do so, Mr. King has promised to unleash the fury of the undead masses to defeat him during the next election cycle.
I feel sorry for Rep. Golden. It is an impossible task to suddenly have to fend off a preternatural enemy from the grave… no, sorry again… from some creepy isolated locale hidden in the snowy woods where even birds dare not fly…
I wish you luck, Jared.
If you suddenly see Kathy Bates, anywhere, contact the authorities.
As to Stephen King, I will add him back into the pool.
