Mr. Trump, Take Blue Back! (Thank you.)

(This was a plea I made on July 22nd of 2015.  And after last night’s debate, I have to extend a Thank You to Mr. Trump.  It’s about time someone wrested Blue back from the Socialists and put them back in their Historic Color… of Oppression, Death and Destruction, Blood Red.)

You’re Just the Man to do It…

Back in 2000 during a ridiculous, and I still believe contrived, Media Argument over how to depict States on Electoral maps during Elections, The Leftists decided to seize the opportunity to sow yet more confusion where there was previously none to be found.

The Liberal Media all came together and ‘voted’ that instead of what had been colors traditionally, and more important historically, associated with the two primary U.S. political parties, Red for Democrats and Blue for Republicans, the colors should be reversed.

Believe it or not, up to that point there was no confusion.

RED was the color of The Democrat Party

and

BLUE was the color of The Republican Party

But the Liberal Media knew this was their chance to help their Party crawl out from underneath the accurate label, and color, of Socialism.

So they ‘voted’ to make Republicans RED and Democrats BLUE.

That’s all it took. The Media revised what History had already determined to be true.

Well, I for one am tired of this glaring revisionism to be accepted by anyone… let alone those of us who know what “RED” means.

RED remains the color of Socialism. 

It is the color of Oppression, Destruction and Death Worldwide. 

It is the color of Lying Populism intended to placate the Masses while cementing the Power of the Few over the Many.

It is the color of creating the Government Addicted.

It is the color of Slavery.

It is the color of Racial and Ethnic Division fomented for Political Gain.

It is the color of Blood shed in the name of Tyranny.

It is the color of Social Democracy and the Democrat Party.

 

Mr. Trump,

During your run for the Presidency, please do me this one favor if you do nothing else, Take Blue Back.

And while you’re at it, remind the American People, and the myriad fools in the Republican Leadership, why Democrats are RED.

Thank You in Advance,

Mike at makeaneffort

Joe Biden says “Thank You”!

Joe Biden is not dropping out of the Democrat Presidential Race because he was never in it!

He and President Obama Take to the Rose Garden to Announce!

It appears Hillary came to her senses and gave in to Joe Biden’s Demands.

John Podesta must have explained to his Matron how harmful Side Show Joe could actually be.

Refer to Buy! Me! Off! and John, Are You Not Paying Attention?!

If the Pay Off was BIG, you should expect Old Joe to endorse Hil in the near future.

Now… as if anyone cares… the only question remaining is what did Hillary Promise Biden in return for his disappearing from the stage?

 

You’ll not find out here, because I don’t care.  Really… I just don’t.


Socialism. Why Not?

Let’s be honest…

You know you’re Smarter than most people.

You’re certain the only thing that happens when other people are given the ability to make their own decisions is they make the wrong ones…

It’s clear to you that everyone is better off having Smart folks like you in charge of things…

Why?  Because life is complicated, and requires the best and brightest to navigate it… especially for everyone else.

Of course You believe in Freedom!

Freedom is not having to constantly make choices about everything…

Of course You believe in Liberty!

Liberty is not having a bunch of responsibilities taking away from the stuff you want to do…

But you also believe in Good Government!

Because Government is the source of all things good in the World…

You weren’t born yesterday… you know what’s Bad!

Corporations are the root of all things Bad…

You also know who the Racists are!

You know for a fact that anyone who opposes the things you think to be true are racists… even those who are minorities.

And you realize the debate is Over!

You are Far too Intelligent… to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

In the End… There is no question You must save the rest of us from Ourselves.

And, if all it takes is forcing a bunch of people to make the right decisions…

Why Not?


Super Bowl XLVII

A Few of you might recognize this post already, but a tune-up was requested.

So here you go…

Does it matter who wins the Superbowl?
I’m sure it does to the San Francisco fans as I’m sure it does to the Baltimore fans.  (Personally, I’m rooting for Coach Harbaugh.)

But what I’m asking is, does it really matter?

Will your life be effected if your team loses? (If you’re gambler then, yes… I get it.)

You can keep reading, this isn’t some diatribe on how sports are ridiculous and a waste of time etc. In fact, I think sports are one of the few opportunities still available for the world to see a meritocracy in action. For Americans the Super Bowl is an annual affirmation regarding the benefits associated with competition. We should try applying it in other areas of our lives more often.
However, it strikes me as interesting that millions of fans know more about; how the game is played, who the best players are and why, the distinct characteristics of the coaches and their records, Deer Antler Spray etc. Some even know the type of turf each stadium has and the stats for the team mascot. The problem I have with this is that whoever wins cannot totally screw up your life… (right… unless you’re a gambler…)
Your asking about now, what does he mean? Does this guy have a point?

Well, every two years we have elections in this country. It’s my contention that had we paid as much attention to our elected officials over the last 60+ years as we do our sports, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in right now.
Then there is the other side of the coin.

It is also my contention that too many of us handle our politics the same way we root for our favorite team. We are the “fair weather fans”. We don’t pay much attention unless “our” team is winning then we may watch them during the regular season but certainly in the play-offs. We don’t really know anything about the players or the coach, but our parents were “fans” when we were kids and/or we grew up close to where the team plays so we’re “fans”. It’s enough that we have a jersey. Right?
Unfortunately this is also how many people vote.

So between the hyper-focus to the exclusion of what truly matters and the cursory focus on what we think matters spells for electoral results that leave us wishing we had bought the case instead of the twelve pack at the grocery store. And, it’s our fault.
My suggestion is we get as excited about elections as we do about our football, baseball and basketball.(I would add golf but… seriously?) Then we learn as much as possible in regard to the characteristics of the candidates, their professed political philosophies and then what they actually believe in based on their actions. It wouldn’t hurt to know their districts and the kind of turf they have… Then and only then do we go vote.

“But sports are way more exciting!” you say. I agree in many regards, but the 49’ers are not going to raise your taxes and the Ravens don’t have the ability to spend the country into oblivion. The above described political contestants do.

So focus your energy on what matters and take off your “party jersey” that your parents gave you.

Learn about the difference between Free-market Capitalism vs. Democratic Socialism.

Understand and be able to identify what camps these politicians belong too even when they tell you something different as they are all prone to do. (Editors Note: Frankly, many of these clowns occupying office have no idea what they are really representing.  Remember, there are no IQ tests required to be in politics.)  Because these guys can and do screw up our lives… on a regular basis… legally… with your permission…  while some of you actually cheer.

Pay attention to sports too… like I said, it may best the last arena we have to see actual competition. Unless, of course, the Politicians figure out a way to regulate that out of existence, which they are working on.

Time for a beer… game’s about to start.
