Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Join me (once again… and again… and again…) in raising a shot glass full of Tequila paired with a fine, German Crafted, Mexican Cerveza celebrating just one of a long list of French military defeats.
Since turning French military catastrophe into holidays would leave us with little time to actually work, we in the U.S. and Mexico have decided that the 5th of May will be it.

Viva Cinco de Mayo!

It was a turning point for the Mexican army (under Seguin) when they defeated the French at Puebla… Blah, blah, blah, Whatever…

While I certainly give credit to the Mexican army for defeating the French… so has everyone else.  In other words it’s a huge, not so exclusive, club with an  ever-expanding membership… kind of like Costco.  As far as I’m concerned, I’ll toast Mexico as well as all those throughout history who have kept the French contained and focused on making cheese, creating recipes for animals humans would otherwise not eat and various delightfully fluffy egg dishes.

Salud!

From Dictionary.com

It appears that the press has discovered a deeply sinister plan which was considered, not enacted, by the ever evil Trump Administration.  According to the Washington Post, Trump officials proposed releasing (illegal) immigrants into Sanctuary Cities to “retaliate” against the Administrations political foes.  Story Here…

This leads my ADD addled, caffeine Addicted, mind to a number of questions…

  1.  Isn’t the above “accusation” exactly what those who created Sanctuary Cities wanted?  If not, why did those cities and the politicians who run them proudly declare themselves as such?
  2.  Isn’t everything the Trump Administration does, thus far, in direct opposition to the Socialists who created the Sanctuary Cities in the first place thus making them ALWAYS political foes regardless of specific proposals considered?
  3. Why is this a story?

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll use the inebriation defense, several months ago I was in LA having a chat with a couple of friends about the ‘busing of migrants’ into California.  The couple were divided on the issue.  Mark (name changed to protect the innocent) viewed the outrage exhibited by Jerry (name changed because I hate a Jerry and he totally sucks… I don’t hate this guy, but Jerry still sucks.) as the height of hypocracy.  Jerry was incensed that New Mexico was supposedly busing in (illegal) immigrants to California(!).  How, he asked, could New Mexico have the gall to send a bunch of people here (California) when our system to care for them is already streched to it’s absolute limit?!

This led me to a simple question.  I started with; Jerry, I understand your being angry about that and I agree with you.  However, allow me to ask you why then is it okay for Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua to send us theirs?

A long very pregnant silence ensued.

I waited.

Jerry’s gears ground in different directions and I swear I saw a light wisp of smoke emanate from his left ear.

Mark smiled.

I continued to wait.

After several seconds of quietly walking around in circles, Jerry rallied what was remaining upstairs and proclaimed, red-faced, “That’s not the same thing!”

I let it go as the point had been made.  Mark continued to smile and Jerry continued to think, painfully.  In full disclosure, I also like both men and look forward to more exchanges in the future.

The point is, If you’re going to declare yourself a Sanctuary City then you cannot simultaneously be upset if your perceived political foe is volunteering to help you in your mission.  When you go into business you cannot get angry with those who send it to you, whether you like them or not.

This is a Foolish story produced by Foolish People at a Foolish Newspaper like the Washington Post.  (If you’re not sure what I’m saying, the link to dictionary.com is above the fold.  Use it.  Fool is spelled F-O-O-L.)

 

Editor’s note:  Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaruaga are in many ways better than New Mexico.  So to Jerry’s defense they are indeed different things.


The Comfortably Dumb

Hello….

Is there anybody in there?

Just Nod if you can hear me.

Is there Anyone at home?

React.  You need no information First.

Just the basic feels, can you tell me where it hurts?

There is no fact you are receiving.

No distant learning on the horizon.

You are only coming through in waves, your lips move but you don’t know what you’re saying.

When you were a child, you had a Fever.  You thought the Great Big World was not Fair… Now you’ve got that feeling once again, you steadfastly refuse to understand…. that your Socialist Utopia is a sham.

Youuuuuuu…  Have become… Comfortably Dumb.

This post is from 2017… but with the advent of AOC, I thought it interesting to remind all of us of two things.

  1.  The Democrats Created the Mares which are eating their own. 
  2.  If there was ever a testament as to why a Parent should Never Send Their Child to any institute of “higher” learning… it’s AOC.  She is truly a glowing example of the educated ignorant.  So very comfortably dumb…

Both of the above facts make me smile for a number of different reasons, not the least of which is the honesty that the Democrat Party, and a sad number of Republicans, have been withholding from all of us for so very long.  AOC, the self-styled love child of Eva Peron and Frida Khalo, IS the Democrat Party.  She is Norman Thomas.  She is the Petulant Lenin.  She is She is the conversation democrats have been having behind closed doors since Chicago ’68… she is what they have always believed.  She is Honest.  She is Ridiculous, and possibly Dangerous to every human on the planet, but Honest.

AOC, like all of her Socialist predecessors have been convinced that Marx has just been misunderstood.  Socialism simply has not been orchestrated correctly.  Mao didn’t do it right… Mussolini didn’t do it right… Stalin didn’t do it right… Hitler didn’t do it right… Pol Pot didn’t do it right… Chavez did it right but the Venezuelans are stupid… etc. etc. etc.

Don’t take her seriously at your own risk…

So on with the previous post…

No Sh*t, there I was… well, not directly in harm’s way but kinda like I was there.  Sorta.  An associate and I decided to go down to our local University to see Milo Yiannopoulos.  It turned out my friend made it and I did not.  What do you do?  However, during the stroll through, around and inside the protests, my friend had a chance to ask some questions of our best and brightest.  Keep in mind, these folks are our future…

(He was also texting me video files of what was happening.  It was classic.  If you want to see who Milo is and don’t yet know, I suggest the youtube.  He also has a MyFace page.)

My favorite was a video of protesters smashing their faces against a large bank of windows and shouting inane slogans about fascism while demanding Milo not be allowed to speak.  (If any one of these screaming University attendees had been taught critical thinking their heads would have exploded from the level of cognitive dissonance.  that is the only thing which could have made these videos better.)  All this was occurring while my associate laughed in the comfortable confines of a largely empty hallway.  It had overtones of a B-movie zombie franchise.  Hilarious!

But the title of this little diddy comes from a question my Friend asked one of the Useful.  (Post updated to include one of New York’s newest Representatives.)

Clandestine Operative:  Have you read, or seen, anything by Milo?  Like on Facebook, or his columns?

Female Protesting Something:  No!  I don’t want to legitimize his Hate!

Hahaahhaaaaahahahaaahaaaaa! Now that’s Learning!  Her parents must be proud!  I hope they’re spending a crap load of money for that education… although I suspect it’s student loans she and her parents will expect the rest of us to pay off.

I wonder what it would have been like to try this on my professors… “Ah, No Dr. Rossi, I did not read the Mein Kampf assignment because I Refuse to Legitimize Hitler’s Hate!”  Or, better yet, “Lenin!?  No Way!  You can shove all his writings right up your a**!”  Or may be “Gandhi?  Gandhi!?  That Child molester?  I refuse to read a word he wrote.  If you try to make me I’ll report you to the Dean!  Fascist!”  (I added that last bit for dramatic contemporary-foolish-college-student effect even though I personally knew what it meant then and would not have employed it out of context.  I most likely would have called him a Communist.)

Anyway…

If you don’t know who Milo is I recommend checking him out.  I predict he will be a bit much for most of you, but I think he may be borderline genius.  I had a Russian professor once upon a time who had similar mannerisms when he lectured, and I suspect similar tastes in men, who I still believe was brilliant to the nth degree.  But I digress.  Listen to what Milo is saying… wave off the super gay theatrics.  It’s his angle.  Don’t get me wrong, he will be the first to tell you he’s super gay, but his point is “Who Cares!?”, being Gay shouldn’t automatically make you a Useful Idiot.  And that’s a good point.  And that’s why they Hate Him.

(My apologies to Messrs. Gilmore and Waters)


Comfortably Numb

You Don’t want to lose your current Doctor, Health Plan or Insurance?

Don’t Worry, we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.

You don’t want to have your money taken from you and handed over to people you disagree with?

Don’t Worry, we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.

You want to make decisions regarding your children like what they eat, how they dress, how they should be punished when they misbehave without asking permission from their School, Teachers, Child Services, Neighbors, Law Enforcement, City Councilors, local media talking heads?

Don’t Worry, we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.

You are over 65 and acquire an illness needing an available medical cure?

Don’t Worry, we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.

You were just Born and have an entire life ahead of you?

In the Words of Virginia’s current Governor…

Don’t Worry… we’ll make sure you survive long enough… then make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.

Socialism is the slavery of ‘you’ to the group… to the ‘we’. I’ve long offered that those who believe the Sheep must be Led never seem to count themselves among the Sheep. They hold that they will always be the ‘we’ deciding what to do with ‘you’.

Socialism is a Poison, it is the ideology of Opression, Death and Destruction. Why? Because Human life must become cheap… the one must be Forced to sacrifice for the many.  Eventually that someone no longer wants to be a slave, that someone no longer wants to ask permission, that someone arrives at the idea that they should be able to make decisions for themselves, then that someone determines it is their right to be Free and seeks Liberty, the group be damned. But…

Don’t Worry… we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.


Did Anyone Catch Chuck Standing Up for all those innocent lives taken by Illegals?

This morning Chuck Schumer stood up for Victims and the Families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens.

I agree… a Wall will be ineffective…

I would let the Socialists have their talking point while ADDING more Personnel, Aircraft, Detention Centers, Drones, LiDar, GPRS, Seismic Sensors, Flooding Devices, Robotic Dogs, Sound and Microwave Deterents (ADS), e-verify, Guard Goats, Stinging Wasps, Mariachis, etc. etc.

Since it’s a Fast Food Freak Out weekend…

In the famous words of Taco Bell;

Run to the Border!

 

(It should also be known that I would support a vastly expanded Work Visa program combined with a removal of the Welfare benefits for those not currently citizens.  People who want to come here to work should be able to do so as long as they return to their home country for at least two weeks and secure a new, current, work visa upon each entry.  If they want to great things Americans get like a vote and Tax payer’s money they will need to get in line like eveyoneelse.  Seems super simple… because it is.  La Gran Mentira.)


In Defense of Elizabeth Warren…

Is it Xenophobia?

The Cherokee Nation has spoken:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation” – Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.

What Mr. Hoskin is refusing to accept is the Reality that Elizabeth Warren is simply an “Undocumented Cherokee”. Ms. Warren is here whether Mr. Hoskin and his Tribe, like it or not. Since she is already claiming Cherokee Heritage and has acted as a member in good standing of the Cherokee Nation for Decades it is only reasonable that the Cherokee Nation accept her and provide full rights and benefits as possessed by every Cherokee Tribe Member. I should remind Mr. Hoskin that Senator Warren has contributed greatly to the Tribe from her representation as a ‘Person of Color’ at Harvard to Cookbooks highlighting uniquely Native American Cuisine. Senator Warren has promoted the Tribes by personally excelling through a life of Socialist politics while positively absolutely and without question not capitalizing on her Native American Identity.

My message to Mr. Hoskin is as follows:

Dear Mr. Hoskin Jr.,

I hope the Sovereign Nations can pry themselves away from what civilized people would consider a 19th Century mindset.

The World is Not Flat, Mr. Hoskins.

Elizabeth Warren is Native American because she says she is. You must respect that.

Due Regards,
Chief


“The European Model”

Unfortunately Not the European Model we will be Talking About.

It’s difficult to think up a good conspiracy theory anymore.
Just when I have crafted something particularly devious and sinister then sugar coat it with ‘best intentions’ so it goes down the throats of “have a go” commenters…
It turns out to be, well, True.
What is an Drunken Evil Genius supposed to do when all of his work is being pre-empted by cheap HB-1 Visa holders in Silicon Valley?
Woe is me…

Alas, one of my favorites sites alerted me to a Google Presentation on Good Censorship.

Let me qualify first that I’m a free market kind of guy. I’m more Libertarian than anything else and will often side with the Dregs and Deplorables of our Republic.  What I’m about to point out does not mean I think regulation is a viable answer… but it does mean I find removing every penny of my tax dollars from the hands of private companies should be on every table.  Enough of that.

After pouring a stout cup of Cafe Bustelo (It should always be Strong, Black, Burnt and Bitter like my Women) I began going through the ‘leaked’ presentation.

It was Horrifying.  I had to add another shot of bourbon to my coffee.

We have talked about Conspiracy Theories here in the past.  This overt move by Google is astonishing… and as we have seen over the last decade with other supposed ‘tin foil hat’ stuff… now provable.

What struck me was not the idea Google was ‘editing’, but rather the idea they found brilliance in what they described as “The European Model”.

In essence, the Presentation offers that the United States pursues Freedom and Liberty which allows horrible things to happen.  In other words, Freedom and Liberty allow for things to happen that the majority of Leftists over at Google don’t like or agree with.

Instead, they propose – and are moving on, ‘Freedom must be Sacrificed for Civility’ and ‘Liberty must be Sacrificed for Dignity’.

Holy Carp!

The folks at Google don’t like the whole Freedom thing because it can’t be controlled… BY DEFINITION.  Stupid Freedom gets in the way of Forcing America into the ‘United World Union of Democratic Socialist Utopians’ – UWUDSU (pronounced ‘you-wood-sue’).  Sorry… it’s that extra shot in my coffee.  Anyway…

How can this be?  Real People can’t truly believe that Socialism works…

Well, I’m not sure how much more evidence you need.  There are basically two types of ‘Real People’ at play here.  The first group is too ignorant or delusional, intentionally or unintentionally, to know the Poison of Socialism.  They, of course, consider themselves members of next group…  (That is until the next group actually secures full control over things.  Then the first group’s lack of membership is made clear often with Starvation, Jail Cells, quickly dug Trenches etc.)

Regarding the second Group, it has been experienced throughout the history of mankind that certain groups of individuals will believe themselves to be anointed philosopher kings and will charge themselves with ‘protecting’ the rest of us from… ourselves.  (Enter Google who is busy giving voice to the Elitist A-Hole position that the unwashed cannot be given the responsibility to determine what is Civil and what is Dignified on their own.)

As we have stated before, an Elitist looks at you and says:

“When you are presented with a decision the only thing we can count on you doing is making the wrong one.” – Elitist A-Hole

This is why they secure positions of power via election, censorship or arms to make sure they can make it for you.

In their minds you should be Thanking them, seriously.  They think you should be writing them Thank You cards… and, of course, paying them lots and lots of your tax payer dollars.

But let’s place the Elitist A-holes on the sideline for a moment and talk about the idea of a “European Model” the United States is supposed to longingly emulate.

The European Model is one of Monarchy, Imperialism, Colonialism, War, Oppression, Slavery, Strict Class Stasis and codified Civility/Dignity in order to make sure those Class Lines were never to be crossed.  The EU Model is one of Blood and Genocide. It’s one of Cultural Eradication.  It has been built upon a belief of Divine Blood Lines.  So corrupt was its history that the ‘New Socialist European Model’ appeared attractive by comparison.  Sadly it was just another ploy by a Disenfranchised Aristocracy seeing the Death of the Feudal System that had kept them in place.  (Read the origins of the International Soviet, the London School of Economics, Engels, Hegel, Marx, Plato, Dewey, Lenin and the Fabian Socialists to start.)  And to the delight of that what could have been the former ruling class, aka ‘the rich folks who ran things but were hoisted upon pitch forks’, the population fell for it, all except those in the American Colonies who watched intently what was happening with the European Model and opted out.  I relaize this is a big expanse of time and a cogent argument could be attempted that most of the ‘intellectuals’ associated with Socialism found their fame in the 1800’s.  But the roots of this idea had been laid for hundreds of years prior to what is considered the ‘revolutionary’ period.  (Speaking of famous revolutions… France Tried but chased Equality instead of Liberty and ended up with Members on Mission.  those were the guys hauling the Guillotine from town to town.  Portable Social Justice.)

We, the United States, chose to pursue Freedom and Liberty rather that Civility, Dignity and Equality as the latter three would always require a Divine Administrator to Govern.

“If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In forming a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” —James Madison, The Federalist No. 51

We had closely watched the horrors associated with Elitists in Europe telling the Masses what they were Free to do and what they were not Free to do.

We decided we could defend our Individual Freedom and Liberty without a Permanent Class of Ruling Elitist A-Holes deciding for us what we can decide for ourselves…

In the mid 1700’s We opted out of the EU Model.  We determined the act of petitioning the King with gifts in order to win approval for one’s personal choices gave the King too much power.  We opted out of Regressive, Re-packaged, Return to Feudalism that the illusion of Democracy within a nascent Socialist Paradigm promised… but designed intentionally to never deliver.

We said Enough!

…An then dressed up like Indians and threw a Tea Party on a Boat.

Google says… we should get back to that Oppression Stuff!

Let that sink in.

The only aspect of this piece of garbage presentation I admire is the assertion these changes need to be made in order for Google to expand.  Why?  Because it’s the only rational and honest statement made as it embraces the Evil.  The Raw truth this statement represents is the recognition of a very real War going on and between those of us who Believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and Those that Do Not.  So Google is saying if you want to do business with those that Do Not… it’s time to censor, oppress and suppress those that do.   (Historically this leads to the Death and Destruction of the very society these delusional people believe they are promoting.  It’s not Debatable… it’s Demonstrable.  Can you imagine this argument being made today in regards to Slavery?  It’s the same argument… except almost everyone are the Slaves.)

We are here now.  Who would have thought?

Google should start a new marketing campaign; Forward Oppression!  I think the ANTIFA-Fascists would just Love it.  (Has anyone else noticed the ANTIFA-Fascist flag is Red, White and Black.  Odd choice of colors… or maybe not.)

So whip off your Tin Foil Propeller Beanie and craft something a bit more elaborate… another Conspiracy Theory has died at the altar of Socialism.  There is still hope for the aluminum clad crowd… 5G is coming.
