Democrat take-over of House almost Inevitable.

According to Nate Silver at 538 the Democrat Takeover of the House of Representatives is basically inevitable.  If you ask Nate, the odds are 76% in favor of the Democrat Socialists.

If you’re not concerned…

Here was Nate Silver’s prediction for the 2016 Presidential Election:

HERE

 

Hmmm….

Are we being set up for “The Russians Meddled!” again?  Or will it be “Trump colluded with the Chinese!”?


Praying for Pragmatism

In every post-election interview the Leftists have been groping for Pragmatism.
They are Praying that Donald Trump is not an Ideologue, like President Obama, and will compromise with them on all policy decisions… until they can regain some power in the house, senate or both, two years from now.

You can smell the fear.

The Fear is not that Trump is coming for your children, gay, straight, hispanic, latino, black, asian, Irish, even the French etc.

The Fear is that Trump might actually put in place solutions regarding Immigration.

That’s it.

Just Immigration.

The Socialists in our country are afraid that he will indeed build a wall, fence, moat… whatever… and then move to the really scary part. They Fear he will create a work visa program which makes it easy, and legal, for our neighbors to the North and South of us to come here and work if they choose to. The Democrats realize that once legitimized in such a fashion these workers would no longer be paying Social Security under stolen Social Security Numbers… they would no longer be in the shadows… and most importantly, They would no longer be able to offer up the ridiculous argument that They should have the right to vote. And, if they do desire to become a citizen of the United States the debate now moves on to our actual immigration policies… That We Already Have… and don’t enforce. No more “They’re going to deport my Grandma!” Hogwash.

Whoa!

Adding insult to injury it would now fall upon the left to remove this work privilege from our neighbors if they ever want to save the Socialist Voting base for generations to come.

I dream of a number of things, but foremost is I dream of a wonderful explosion in private charities making available such things as education to ‘ex-pat Canadians and Mexicans’ who reside here for work. (If Mark Zuckerburg wants to fill Facebook full of brilliant Mexicans and Canadians… awesome!)  I dream of an explosion of hard-working, genuinely terrific, people coming here from Mexico and Canada to make some money and help support their families abroad. I dream the United States will not only benefit from this new influx of workers, but those workers will benefit from enjoying the bounty provided by American Exceptionalism and begin wondering why their respective home countries don’t embrace Free Market Capitalism as Governing Theory.

However…

I predict that the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, will become Mr. Filibuster in the Senate… because the Liberal Leftists cannot afford for any of this to happen.

I also predict the Democrat Party will be the party of “No!” to all things.

It is going to be an interesting 4-years… possibly 8.

There is an urban myth out there that needs to be addressed.

“Binge drinking is bad.”  No, wait.  Wrong one.

“Compromise is good.”

If you’re a product of the public schools (like I am) it should be expected you believe we should all get along.  You probably think our elected representatives should be having dinner together, holding hands and making out in the back of dark movie theaters.  You might even think it is GOOD when they all get together and create legislation effecting the rest of us.

In other words, you might believe passing lots of bills is a terrific way to judge their productivity.  You think the government should “do something”… You might have been taught that the founders of this country wanted our leaders to strip down and embrace each other every time they met so they could create lots of really cool law.  If any of this rings true for you, what you “know” is wrong.  You should demand a refund on that free public education.

Here’s the truth, our system of government was designed specifically to be slow, cumbersome and rarely produce laws.  It was created to make sure no single branch could run rampant over the others with this purpose in mind.  It was designed for a fight… over everything… in the hopes that whatever came out was only what was absolutely necessary.  Less was more.  Nothing getting done was fine, if not preferred.  (I’ve floated this idea around the house but have not had much traction.)

We have come a long way from that original intent.  Over the last 100 years we have entitled our politicians to do whatever they want.  They have learned to routinely create law outside of the Constitution because they know that the odds are no-one will challenge it.  And, if their law does get challenged it will take too long and the American people will lose interest, or more often think they are owed whatever the law might “give” them.

These same politicians also know they can slow down the process of any legal challenge by appointing judges who also don’t care what limitations the Constitution puts in place.  Such judges then present their rulings utilizing previous unconstitutional rulings they or their fellow travelers passed down earlier.  Amazingly, they are also not above using foreign law for validation… which I’m very sure the Founding Fathers did not intend.  The fact that we revel in our lack of understanding and promote such behavior in our leaders should be frightening.  It has brought us to a very scary place.  Haven’t you wondered why alcohol sales are up? We’re frightened, but too uninformed to know why.  It’s like a horror movie where the person about to get killed runs around the house and turns all the lights… off.

There has been a determined movement over the last 80 years to position the U.S. Constitution as too restrictive.  (Our current president is on the record promoting this very idea.)  But you will most often find it repeated by the “open-minded” who have not taken the 5 minutes needed to read it, let alone try to discuss and understand it. (They don’t need to read it… their hearts tell them what they need to know… what’s scary about that is they vote…)   These are also the people who think we should all give each other big wet sloppy kisses… all the time.  To them, getting along to “help the country” sounds so nice it requires no further exploration on their part.

To make things worse, there are too many people who want to be led and then insist you must be led as well.  These people have found a home on both sides of the aisle.  The Founders were aware this would always be a reality. The defense they gave us against such people was an extremely well-defined and very restrictive document, that could be changed, in other words amended, if needed… but it would take an act of congress. (Yes, that’s where the phrase came from.)

What it comes down to is that you have two sides to choose from.  One side subscribes to individual freedom and one does not.  What makes one side somewhat sinister is that it wants to control you with “the best of intentions”.  Bear in mind, those who believe the sheep need to be led never seem to count themselves among the sheep….

So there must always be a war between those who know you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself  (Statists/Socialists) and those of us who think you are the only person who knows what’s best for you. (Free-market Capitalists)   If you give it a moment of thought, does it  make sense that a person who subscribes to individual freedom be buddies with a person who believes in the soft slavery of statism?  It’s really as simple as that.  The line in the sand is Force.

In conclusion, we are not supposed to get along.  We are not supposed to compromise our individual freedoms.  Ever.

If you need proof, compromise with Socialists is what got us here today… bankrupt, having our e-mail and phones call tapped, “intelligence agents” looking at our daughters cell phone pictures and Facebook pages while your grandmother is getting molested at the airport.  And the useful idiots continue begging for more Bipartisanshitt…

Post the Bill!

In a Bipartisan Move the House of Representative should deliver on Barack Obama’s promise of the Most Transparent Administration in History.

It’s Time for the House of Representatives to Go to the People.

Whatever Bill they come up with on this eve of coming face to face with the debt limit they should post it online for all to see.

I believe I can speak for all of us when I say “We will Read It”.

Then, when the Senate begins slicing and dicing it, adding poison pills and changing the language, they House should modify the online post to reflect the change is (while leaving the previous language crossed out) and who is responsible for it… real-time.

Allow the American People to see what is going on.

And, prevent genuinely horrible Socialists like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid from charging up to the podium and declaring the bill dead on arrival because is terrible for the country and the people advocating it are terrorists… when none of us know what’s in the bill.

Not only would it allow us to judge for ourselves if what’s in the bill is truly “terrorism” as the Progressives like to describe anything which is anti-socialist, but it would allow for far more interesting questions posed to the likes of Pelosi, Reid and the President after they are finished with their inflammatory rhetoric.

By golly, if I’m the Boston Strangler I want at least to know why.  Now THAT would be some faith and good credit.

Of course The House would have to step around Peter King and John McCain… because that’s just not how things are done in their preferred type of government.


Why are the Democrats Angry?

Could it be that Harry “Why would I help a child with Cancer” Reid, Senate Majority Leader, and the rest of the Democrat Party finds the taste of their own Medicine Bitter?

Do the Democrats in the Senate, along with President Obama, really want to start a war on our own shores… with Senior Citizens, Veterans, Parents of Kids with Cancer and the rest of the American People?

Will President Obama stand by and allow his Party to stop Social Security Checks? Can the Liberals truly intend to starve senior citizens? Make them go without heat? Have their homes foreclosed on by the Evil banks?

Will they force Veterans to lose their benefits and services?

Yes… they will.

Harry “I don’t have a Negro Dialect” Reid just refused to allow the Senate to vote on funding the VA. ( Just now. As I type this.)

I guess I shouldn’t expect someone who doesn’t care about kids with cancer to care about Veterans.

If you voted Democrat… this is your party in action.


Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer is Honest if Nothing Else

I wish the House had more John McCain’s.”

While Senator McCain is, well, a Senator… I understand Schumer’s lament.  He already has McCain in the Senate, the only obstacles for Democrat Socialists appear to be in the McCainless House of Representatives.  If they could only have that cloning program up and running…

And, as far as Schumer is concerned;

With Enemies like McCain, who needs Friends?

I agree Chuck.


Double Up…

…the number of Border Agents who cannot arrest anybody.  And, if they do, cannot detain or deport them.

Demand a 90% apprehension rate of illegal aliens, a statistic that can never be verified.

Whatever you do, do not build tall fences… and certainly not with wide gates.

Anything, anything, anything but Securing the Borders First.

Why is that the goal?  Why the posturing?

La Gran Mentira.


The Party of Giving…

…versus The Party of Taking Away.

This is how the Democrats have positioned every argument during the Obama Administration.

The Liberal, Progressive Socialists have worked their way into power by doing nothing more than giving away stuff. They claim this is compassionate… caring. They claim it is “just” and “fair”. They will do anything to claim a moral high ground. But they will purposely never solve any problems.  Which is why President Obama cannot allow respected individuals like Bob Woodward or Wolf Blitzer to remind people the proposed “cuts” were the Presidents idea, and were included in the budget deal at his insistence.  After all, Liberals listen to these media figures… and believe them. It is also why President Obama will not take control, which has been offered by the House Republicans, of what cuts should occur. The Democrat Party, and President Obama, absolutely cannot be seen as taking anything away… ever.  Dependency is what the expect.  And they have been incredibly successful.

Instead of risking they could be labeled as doing the fiscally responsible thing, they will find people who believe their taxpayer-funded employment, or taxpayer-funded unemployment, is a right… an entitlement.  They will put these people in front of a camera whether on their favorite news and opinion shows or your local newscast.  They will let these folks tell you how difficult their lives are… due to the feared, or newly enacted “cuts”.  Nobody will question what their lives were like prior to the “cuts” or whether the “cuts” actually effected them in away way.  There will be no real investigation.  Rather, the dutiful media will nod their collective heads in somber despair over the plight of these individuals.  Keep in mind, the talking heads wont do anything to help them… but they will definitely “feel their pain” and hope that you do too.  It is an important aspect to remember that such people can always be found… everyday… all the time.  But Alinsky teaches us that you never roll them out unless you can create the perception their plight is the responsibility of your enemy.  Only then do you seek them.  Only them do you engage them.  Only then do you showcase them.  Identify the problem (“cuts” to government spending), Freeze it (give it the name “Sequester”), and personalize it (find some “victims” and put them in front of everybody.).

So goes the Liberal Theater of Givers versus Takers.

Didn’t it strike you as strange the reaction from the Left just a few months ago when the Conservatives started identifying themselves as the Makers… and those addicted to government as the Takers?  The screaming could be heard as far as Greece.  This was because the message of Makers vs. Takers was damaging the Progressive Liberal brand.  They cannot allow their identity of the “Givers” diluted in any way.  Certainly not to be replaced by the label of “Taker”.

So as usual, the most effective messaging is discarded by those fiscally responsible for the stuff the Democrats believe is their right to give away… us.  “We just don’t want anyone to think we’re mean…”

Well, this country is self-destructing.  It’s time to get mean.

It’s time to be confrontational.  It’s time to stop wringing our hands and do the adult thing.

It’s time to take things away.  Take away those things that should never have been given… especially by those who had no right to give them.

If they want the Party of Taking things away then we should give it to them.  We have no choice.

When you borrow 46% of every dollar just to pay for what you’ve given away SO FAR you are in deep, deep trouble.  In this respect The End is truly Near… it wont be sudden.  Our current path of demise will be slow and painful… and ugly.

In case you need any more eveidence… You have the Mayor of New York stating openly what I have said for years; that your money is worthless.  His quote was “the United States has an infinite amount of money…”  which is exactly the same thing.  When you have an “infinite” amount of anything it is worthless.  When he goes on to say that lenders will always give us more money to spend… when in truth we, the United States, are buying our own debt through accounting tricks exactly because foreign governments are not lending us more money, we should all be very frightened.  We should be frightened not just by the fact that we are having to play games with the numbers which would land any one of us in jail, but that the Mayor of one of our largest Cities doesn’t see the Evil associated with the fiscal destruction of the United States.

It’s time to stop allowing the word “revenues” to be substituted for “higher taxes”.  It’s time to stop allowing these people to manipulate us through the fabrication of artificial fires and tales of Apocalypse.  It’s time to bring every debate back to the fiscal survival of the United States.  It’s time to cease allowing Leftists to control the language.

It IS a battle between the Makers and the Takers.  There is 47% of the population that pays NO Federal income tax.  Liberals/Progressives/Democrats are, in fact… by definition… Socialists.  Jeffery Immelt of GE and others like him are Fascists.  This is not a “crazy” rant, this is a plain statement of fact.  Words have meaning, and the meaning is there for all those intellectually honest enough to look them up.  Only the ignorant, or those suffuring from denial, can be offended by these terms…

So the only genuine questions we are left with are:

Will someone, somewhere, lose their government job they feel they’re entitled to?  Yes.  Will someone, somewhere, not get the government contract they feel is their right to have?  Yes.

Will these people be able to spin a tale of despair and misfortune?  Yes.  Just as any addict can… and does when his drug is cut off.

We are about to see a flood of people who, whether they recognize it or not, are addicted to government come out and talk about how they will not be able to go on living.

I feel sorry for these folks and wish them a speedy re-entrance into the private sector which is the engine of prosperity driving the freest country on the face of the planet.

I hope all of us are quick to give them sympathy, and just as quick to remind them that they in conjunction with decades of politicians they supported are to blame for their situation.

We must break our populations addiction to “Free” Stuff, or this country is doomed.

Our voices must be loud!  We cannot allow bullies like Chris Mathews, Rachel Maddow, Predient Obama et al. kow us into submission.

Get ready… cuz’ here it comes.
