Random Thoughts


Playing catch-up is impossible.  There is no way to keep all the comments & posts current with the work schedule that I’m keeping.  Thus, a few comments on various topics.


Things appear to be settling down in Ferguson, MO, or at least, it’s falling off the media’s radar.  The amount of media bias is stunning given the lessons not learned in the Travon Martin case.

Of course, the race baiters were out in force hyping up the deceased even before any facts were in evidence.  If the race baiters had their choice, there would have been vigilante justice before any negative aspects of Michael Brown surfaced.

Personally, we need justice to be blind to everything but the facts of the case.  However, that doesn’t appear to be on the agenda – either for the media nor the self-appointed protectors of civil rights (of whom real civil rights take a back seat to their self-serving agenda). 

Racial justice?  No, these folks want blood – any blood – to further their agenda.  Booker T. Washington said it best:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”


It’s absolutely stunning that the President of the United States chooses to involve himself and his administration in the cases of Travon Martin and Michael Brown, and yet says nothing of the black on black violence and murders in Chicago nor of the loss of police officers in the line of duty.


The President of the United States violates the laws of the United States when trading five known terrorist leaders for a soldier who, by all appearances, deserted his post, and suffers no consequences from Congress.  Additionally, the President is on the golf course within ten minutes of giving a press conference (with no questions asked) concerning the execution of a journalist by the terrorist group ISIS.  Furthermore, the President later stated that there is no plan to deal with ISIS even though this group has been on the radar for months if not years.  It is no wonder that the confidence in our President and government is so low.


The crisis at the Southern border is one of security, not immigration.  If there is not a secure border, then we do not have a country – our country will be destroyed from within by those allowed unfettered access whether they blow up buildings or destroy the economy by sucking the life out of it.


It was absolutely amazing to see the media lose their collective minds when not one, but two journalists were executed by ISIS terrorists.  Somehow, the media believes that they are exempt from any sort of harm by terrorists, thugs, or criminals.  Perhaps they believed that all they had to do is shout “I’m a journalist!” and they would get a free pass.  I think they now understand that they are in the same boat as everyone else – if these people don’t like you, they’ll kill you.


The only thing transparent about this Administration is their naked hostility to the People of the United States.  Let’s not even think about the restrictions various Senators want to place on your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights.  Think about this instead:

The Administration is spending billions of dollars trying to gather all the information they can about the People through phone metadata in violation of the 4th Amendment in order to control the population, but they can’t even be bothered to secure the borders of this country from people who would do us harm.  Additionally, the IRS can’t even retain their own email records, but expect us, the People, to keep records in minute detail for periods up to 10 years.  And if you somehow run afoul of a government bureaucrat with a little power, your life can become a living hell.

Isn’t this a bit insane, or has the government gotten too big, too powerful, and completely out of control?


I’ve noticed that the Democrats decry the Koch brothers involvement in various issues, stating that the Koch’s are buying politicians and votes.  Funny – I thought that’s what George Soros, Michael Bloomburg, and other Democrat friendly millionaires were doing on the Democrat’s behalf, and the Democrats don’t say a word.  I guess it does make a difference on which side the money comes from.  F*****g hypocrites…


It’s sad, really sad, that we cannot seem to attract to politics the people that we can trust to set things right. Sure, there are a few, but they don’t get elected because they are too honest to play the dirty game that is politics. Politics seems to be a profession of where we elect (hire) people to office fully expecting them to lie to us. Almost sounds like another profession…


“Among a large class, there seemed to be a dependence upon the government for every conceivable thing. The members of this class had little ambition to create a position for themselves, but wanted the federal officials to create one for them. How many times I wished then and have often wished since, that by some power of magic, I might remove the great bulk of these people into the country districts and plant them upon the soil – upon the solid and never deceptive foundation of Mother Nature, where all nations and races that have ever succeeded have gotten their start – a start that at first may be slow and toilsome, but one that nevertheless is real.” – Booker T. Washington – Up from Slavery


I am fully expecting President Obama to use his executive powers to create some sort of amenesty for the illegal aliens among us in violation of the immigration laws of this country. It will be after the election to try and keep from losing any more Democratic seats in Congress or around the country. My question is going to be what Congress will do to rein in this self-appointed king…


Anyone who doesn’t think that mid-term elections aren’t important haven’t been paying attention to the state of the country.


There are many people who think that Hillary Clinton should be the next President, probably because she is a woman and a Clinton. Let me ask you these two questions:

  • What accomplishments did she have during her service with the State Department?  I see a foreign policy that left 4 Americans dead in Benghazi, our relationships with our friends in shambles, and an emboldened enemy.
  • Barack Obama was elected primarily on his “hope and change” mantra, and it didn’t hurt that he wasn’t Caucasian.  He had no experience in running anything, and voted “present” most of the time he was in office. How has that worked out for the country? Hillary has done much the same thing, and seems to be running roughly the same playbook in her pre-election bid.


Until next time, be well.

  1. very well said sir. Had anyone actually listened to what Obama was or I should say not saying in 2008 things might be a bit better.

  2. Glad I came in here today. This is a very very well laid out post that would make anyone proud….if they had their heads on their shoulders the way God intended. Fantastic post sir. Hope you had a great and safe Labor Day.
