My Wife Knows Ray Rice

There are times when my wife makes a profound statement. Up until today it has never been about sports. She doesn't know sports and she doesn't care if the world knows it. She's the kind of person who when asked, "Do you watch sports", she responds with, "Yes, I've fallen asleep in front of the TV many times"? When we watch a game and the camera pans the crowd she'll ask, "What's that players wife thinking right now"? I'll answer, "Don't know". But, under my breath I'll say, "Why me, Lord".

The Ray Rice decision came down yesterday. In the 24 hour news cycle you may have forgotten him. He is the former Baltimore Ravens football player who performed the 'Cave Man' act on his wife. He punched her out in an elevator then drug her by the hair down a hotel hallway. Far be it from me to criticize the way husbands treat their wives but this might out have out rather extreme.

The Ravens dropped Rice from the team(under duress from the press and public, I'm sure). He appealed his dismissal and yesterday was reinstated to the league.

My wife and I were listening to the car radio this morning on our way to visit our grandchildren. On came a news report asking the question, will another team chance taking Ray Rice? And out of the know nothing sports mouth came this; "Someone will take him in a New York minute. If a man has the aggression to beat up his wife think what he'd do to an opponent". She continued, "Isn't that what football is all about".

For not knowing diddly squat she's one smart lady.

Communist Newspaper, NY Times, Publishes Darren Wilson's Address Info

The New York Times had no qualms whatsoever about publishing almost all the information needed for Officer Darren Wilson´s enemies to track him and his wife down at home: Officer Wilson and [his wife] own a home together on XXXXXXX Lane in XXXXXXXXXX, Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson. This malicious move by the New York Times has not gone unnoticed by Ferguson´s protesters.

5 Million Equals 2.2 Trillion

The Congressional Budget Office(CBO) tells us the influx of newly legalized illegal immigrants will cost $2.2 trillion in the form of government benefits.
The last thing I want to do is be the bearer of bad tidings. You and I both know who's going to foot this bill. Another item about the CBO. When was the last time any government body underestimated the cost of government mandates?

Who Are These Ferguson Protesters, Anyway

What's taking so long with the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri? It's understandable that we all want justice served but enough already. We could have sent a man to Mars, had him build a skyscraper, and returned him to the U.S. since this jury was seated.

If you didn't know there are a myriad of organized groups on the streets of the St. Louis suburb. Depending on your news sources members of the KKK, Communist Party of America and the Black Panthers have shown their presence. On Thursday, the FBI located two pipe bombs brought in by the Panther's. Boys will be boys.

There are scads of other groups present all trying to catch a few seconds of TV time to promote their cause. The only groups I haven't seen are bra burners, darn it, and Code Pink.

There was a story on the AP last night relating the role of churches in the beleaguered city when the final verdict is read. Local pastors have told the citizens to come to church sanctuaries for safety. Yes, and the followers of Che' Guevara would say, "We can't firebomb this place. It's a church sanctuary".

I have a "no lie" story. I may have been the only person in American watching CNN yesterday afternoon. Actually, I was flipping between football games and clicked an incorrect number.Regardless, I caught a clip of some of our finest protesting on Ferguson's streets.

One young lady was coiffed in short pink hair, the style Doris Day would have worn in the movie, The Pajama Game. She was screaming through a bullhorn. I couldn't make out the wording but it wasn't "Mary had a little lamb". Next to her was another love child, same style Doo but with blue hair. I wonder what their parents think. Do they have parents? Do they care? Were the parents stoned? Were the parents flipping channels watching football games?

Years ago I wrote a post on protesters in some Allah forsaken country in the Middle East screaming, "Yanqui go home". At the time I wondered what these thousands upon thousands of white robed maniacs did for jobs. Did the government send them around the country to different sites as professional screamers? Being a professional screamer would be difficult work, be it in Riyadh,  Saudi Arabia or Ferguson, Missouri. First, your throat would become extremely hoarse after twenty hours of non-stop blathering. I'd bet after awhile the screamers only mouth the words. And the headaches, "oy vey"!  Do I have to go on about the headaches?

And what happens when the professionals have to relieve themselves? Do they have stand-in screamers or do they lift their robes and let it fly? Goats defecate in streets. Why not humans.

One can only imagine the conversations between professional protesters. "What are we going to do today"? And the roomie says, "I'm going to pick up my welfare check, get my syphilis check-up at the free clinic, steal wine and food at the local market then shoot on over to the protest line and scream about this blood sucking capitalist pig country run by the fascist police".

If I was heading up the grand jury investigation and the final verdict came in I'd have the results read on Sunday morning. The protesters would be either sleeping off a good buzz or the nice ones would be in church.

Another Day, Another Blatant Lie

NYT: While you were sleeping, Obama re-upped us for another year in Afghanistan; Update: Biden in 2010: Pulling out in 2014 “come hell or high water”.

Is there a possibility this might have been one of those faux campaign promises?

Do You Want To Be An American Or Not

My wonderful and very special grandfather, Joseph, was born in Rock Island, Illinois on January 10, 1988. He grew up in a German speaking household. Gramps, by the time he went to kindergarten, was bilingual. His father, Johann, had a strict familial rule regarding the United States of America. He was proud of his new country and determined his children would carry on with his views. Speaking German inside their home was allowed but when family members went out the door the requirement was to speak English; no German allowed, no German traditions were to be seen or heard.

As a youngster I'd go to grandfather's home early in the morning and he'd be reading his German Bible. I knew a scattering of the language but he never spoke to me in his native tongue. When he went to Mass he'd take his Bible written in English.

We live in a large metropolitan area near Columbus, Ohio. My suspicion is there are close to a million and a half people in the city and surrounding suburbs. I find it more than irritating going to the cash dispenser at the bank then be required to use the touch screen asking if I'm speaking English, Spanish or Somalia.

One of our largest combo supermarket, clothing, appliance stores is called Meijer. When I walk through the front doors I'm a man without a country. The place is like being at the United Nations. Name any language and I'm clueless to what people in their native garb are babbling. It's as if all the descendants from the Tower of Babel use this store as a multicultural bazaar. I'll go through the check out line and the lady running the register is exasperated with me because I can't comprehend her dialect. And I'm the one who feels badly about it. Does this make sense?

I've included the picture at the top of this piece since it illustrates perfectly about which I'm writing.
If you want the rights and privileges of  American citizens then, by God, act like one. Don't write your ridiculous signs in Spanish. I don't speak the language unless I want a taco or a margarita.

All We Suggest Is A Measley 3%

In 2006 then President, George Bush, flew a trial balloon about Social Security. He wanted a bill passed saying people could contribute 3% of their money into stock market. "No, it's in a Social Security lockbox" screamed the naysayers. "It can't be touched", cried Democrats. The low information crowd said, "Huh"? What a bunch of whale vomit. There's no lockbox. It's empty.

In 2003 this country experienced a recession dropping the Dow to 7,300. Would you care to know that as of today the Dow is at 17,800 and will soon kick in the door on 18,000. Hmmm! A measly 3% of your funds, instead of being wasted on studies to determine how fast mice can go on treadmills, would be in your pockets. How does that make you feel?

I had written a story a little over a year ago about a new law passed to eliminate members of congress from ill-gotten financial gain. In the future members of congress could no more use insider trading legally. If you don't understand how this works it goes something like this: "Nancy, invest in AT&T because it's value is going to jump dramatically". When was the last time you had this happen to you other than never? And I always wondered how Dianne Feinstein and Harry Reid became so wealthy. As is the case these laws are made up of many addendums and bit by bit the insider trading rules have been done away with and the animals are back feeding at the government trough.

Screwed again, guys.

Twenty-Five Times Obama Said No

Since The Emperor has taken office he has gone before the cameras and stated in various forms; "I execute the laws. I do not make the laws. We are a democracy sic(Republic) and I must follow the Constitution" He has stated these statements exactly twenty-five different times over the past six years.

Liberals will cite Ronald Reagan as a president who signed immigration reform. Reagan also went before Congress to gain approval. And what did the Democrats, as a part of their compromise, not do? Their promise was to build a secure southern border. Liars, as usual.

The radical left demands the immigrants be granted their God-given rights.(Funny how God is used to meet their agenda). What they forget is members of congress represent their constituents. They are supposed to be conduits for the desires of the people back home. Nearly 60% of people do not want the immigration reform of the Emperor-in-Chief.

More food for thought-characteristics of a sociopath from google:
-An oversized ego.
-Lying and showing manipulative behavior.
-Incapable of showing empathy.
-Lack of shame or remorse.
-Staying eerily calm in dangerous situations.
-Behaving irresponsibly or with extreme impulsivity.
-Having few close friends.
-Being charming —but only superficially.
-Living by the pleasure principle.
-Showing disregard for societal norms.
-Having intense eyes.

Prosecutors Ready More Charges Against Charles Manson


You're now familiar with the story of 80-year-old Charles Manson. He's about to be married to a 26-year-old. Love is in the air especially for the former Midwestern "lady".

When she was then 17 it was her contention Manson was innocent of masterminding the Tate Murders of the 1960's. She then moved to California to be near her guy.

Prosecutors are already preparing new charges against the octogenarian if and when the love birds attempt a consummation of their holy vows.

Court records show that he will be charged with assault with a dead weapon.

Obama Caught On His Knees Praying

Associated Press reporters were touring the White House this afternoon. Two respected journalists (an oxymoron) walked past the open doors of the Oval Office and saw the Mr. Obama on his knees deep in prayer.

When questioned as to why a Secret Service Agent responded, "He's praying that Officer Wilson from Ferguson, Missouri will have all charges against him dropped. There will be mass rioting and mayhem to be covered by the media. It's the only story that will make the Gruber debacle go away".

86M Americans simply don’t want to work: 40% of women, 28% of men, 39% of youth

evolution of man
There is a simple truth about America’s declining unemployment numbers about which the MSM won’t tell you.
Many of the unemployed — TENS OF MILLIONS of them — have simply stopped looking for work. They’ve dropped out of the U.S. labor force, and so they are not counted among the ranks of the “unemployed.”
Paul Bedard reports for Washington Examiner, Nov. 14, 2014, that a mind-boggling 92 million Americans, or nearly 4 in every 10 Americans, are not in the labor force.

Racist Tea Partiers Keep Jill Upson From Winning Election. Oops! I Lied

Paul Joseph Goebbels And "The Big Lie"

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Please don't misconstrue the above paragraph as a comparison between the Obama Administration and that of Nazi Germany. In the waning days of World War II the Soviets were at the gates of Berlin slaughtering the innocents as they entered the city. Hitler's propaganda minister, Paul Goebbels, took to the radio airwaves and announced to the German people, "We are winning the war and it's only a matter of time before victory is at hand". Hitler was by then a drug addled delusional piece of humanity. He felt the people were traitors to the cause, then had Goebbels tell the population to head to underground tunnels for safety. The task had been completed. Nazi soldiers then opened the flood gates of the River Spree and thousands of patriotic German citizens died. And so goes 'The Big Lie'.

How the Obama Big Lie Works:

In 2009 before both houses of Congress: "Let me be perfectly clear. No illegal immigrants will receive benefits under the Affordable Care Act"
"If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor".
"If you like you plan you can keep your plan".
"Your premiums will not rise on thin dime and in most cases will be reduced by $2,500".

These are domestic utterances. I haven't yet dwelled on egregious lies involving foreign involvements.
"It wasn't me who drew a Red Line. The world drew a Red Line".

The point to be taken here is it's easy to dupe the people. They desire to believe the outrageous. If you don't believe me then why does the National Enquirer continue to be a profitable publication?

President Obama Has Proven He Is A Psychopath

President Obama, speaking from Brisbane, Australia this morning, stated he had "just heard about the Johnathan Gruber revelations". He also said, "Gruber was some adviser who never worked on our staff". Apparently, the now seven videos implicating the President in the "Americans are stupid" scheme don't count.

Considering that Gruber earned $400,000 for his work from HHS and another $4.5 million from particular states advising them some might scoff at the notion the good professor was non-existent in the formulation of the law.

Strangely, then Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid had previously interjected themselves in the hoax. We have seen them on video from 2009 praising Professor Gruber as the chief architect of ObamaCare. These people should learn that videos don't lie. Last week, Queen Nancy stated she, too, had never heard of the guy from MIT. He must feel like a man without a country since nobody wants to be associated with him. "Be very careful, Mr. Gruber, there is such a thing as the "Chicago Mafia".

"What’s important about Gruber’s words is that they highlight the fact that ObamaCare isn’t just “controversial” or “divisive” or “hotly debated.” It is fraudulent. Being based on lies, it is illegitimate".

It isn't a surprise Obama would utter the famous, "Just heard about it" excuse. He used it in Fast & Furious, the IRS and the government spying scandals plus a myriad of others. Even Jon Stewart from Comedy Central thinks his "Just heard" bit was ridiculous. See video:

It's time for the House to initiate serious investigations, not only on Gruber, but also on Mr. Obama. He carries the nuclear football. The psychopath in the White House has put the United States in grave danger and also the world.

91-Year-Old Woman Awakens After Being Declared Dead


WARSAW, Poland (AP) – A Polish doctor says she has been in “deep shock” since learning that a 91-year-old woman she pronounced dead woke up in a morgue.
The doctor – identified in media as Wieslawa C. – said on TVN24 television Friday that she was sure the patient was dead after finding “no basic life functions” during a house call on Nov. 6.

Breaking News: Obama Agreed With The Gruber Lie

On June 13, 2012, Obamacare Jonathan Gruber was interviewed by Frontline.  He told them that the Cadillac tax issue was addressed in 2009.  Obama knew it was going to be a problem, and they all agreed to lie about it.

Bumper Stickers And Other Junk

If you've read this blog for any length of time you know I'm a collector of all things great and small. Most people would call it worthless junk but we all know the old saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure".

Forget about my thousands upon thousands of now worthless baseball cards, none of which have any value unless they're pre-dated to the 1950's. I can only hope when my grandchildren are my age they might receive a positive return on mine unless they've become close friends with their garbage man.

Also in my possession are Indian head pennies, hundreds of them, from the 1860's. I have campaign buttons, the read deal, from the 1920's to present. A couple of them will give me enough money to buy a Sports Illustrated.

In addition, I'm a saver of crap beggars in Mumbai wouldn't touch. My high school published a monthly newspaper. I've saved them all. I went to our 25th high school reunion and the organizers were selling reprints for $10. I caught hell because I wouldn't open my wallet. My buddy asked why I was so cheap. I said, "Why should I buy these when I have the originals"? It made sense to me and must have to him, too, because he immediately shut up.

Yesterday I found a program from the first Iowa High School Shrine football and basketball game from 1973. I was a teacher and coach at the time and remember telling myself, "You know, someday this is going to be pretty valuable". Reasoning like this is why I'm a salesman's best friend. I looked at the program and saw the name and picture of a then kid from Boone, Iowa, my hometown. He was selected for the football team. My gracious heart told me, "Why not try and find this guy to see if he'd like have it. I found his phone number and left a message explaining why I was calling. So far, no call. That tells you something about what I saved and what it doesn't mean to others along with my lack of business acumen for value.

Our high school basketball team played in the finals of the Iowa High School tournament in 1963. I saved three programs until 2006. I have two great buddies and we've been friends since 1955. For a birthday present I sent each guy a program. I later found out that one of my friends used his as a placemat when he ate his meals. He didn't hurt my feelings. He's slightly quirky and I love him to this day. It just seems wrong that the guy on the cover is plastered with peanut butter and jelly.

There are clubs and collector's for every item on earth or so I thought. I was driving on I-270 in Dublin this afternoon and saw a couple of bumper stickers that intrigued me, then came back to the house to see where I might find out more about these organizations. Over the years I've put a few away. Who in this world would have a Bush/Quayle bumper sticker? Not many. 
As for bumper sticker clubs and organizations there aren't any. This has to be a first in collecting. I know of groups who collect different types of camel dung.

This lack of collecting is sad because bumper stickers tell volumes about a person's personality, what they believe and what they think. When I see  a bumper sticker on a moving car I speed up to get a look at these people. I used to do it with Obama/Biden stickers but not anymore. Obama voters are one of four types: Blacks, union people, old ladies and hippies. In the first place one rarely sees a sticker from 2012. But there are still '08 ones floating around, lots of them. Even I would change my sticker more often than these folks do. I hope they remove their underwear more often than they do their bumper stickers.

On my drive home I approached a VW wagon and the entire back side was covered with messages: Save the planet, No more war, etc. You know the drill. The guy driving was older than Methuselah with white hair and a pony tail. Woodstock lives!

As I left the interstate and got on highway 33 I saw another sticker. You've seen thousands of these :
"Proud parent of a Notre Dame student". I think what it actually means is, I'm a great parent because I've sacrificed my butt to give my kid everything in the world".

The very best bumper sticker I've ever seen happened a month ago, also in Dublin. It follows along the line of the guy who sends his kid to ND but has a far different in meaning.

 It read, "Proud parent of a C student at Worthington Middle School" It made my day. At an oncoming stop light I got the lady to drop her window then gave her two 'thumbs up'.

Johnathan Gruber Is 100% Correct. The American People Are Stupid

If you watch the supposed major television networks or read the MSM you're unaware of comments made by Johnathan Gruber. He is the main architect of ObamaCare and now, in a series of three videos as of today*, has made some profound and revealing statements about the American populace and their inability to understand anything involving the use of brain power.

Over the course of three years, on camera with words, Gruber has stated our health care law would not have passed had it not been for: (1) the need for a lack of transparency*, (2) the stupidity of the American people on understanding how it would impact them and (3) it would raise our taxes.

Know what? I agree with Gruber regarding stupid people. It's impossible not to. Who in their right minds would elect a president to the highest office in the land knowing little, if anything, about his life? I make this promise. If I happened to be running for the office of Mayor of Dublin, Ohio the party of the opposition could go back to Boone, Iowa and know my entire bio from the age of six to high school graduation and I'm almost sixty-nine years of age. They would easily find acquaintances from Coe College, friend and foe alike, to give them the inside dirt.
I taught in six different high schools. Enough said. And on and on and on.

Trust me when I tell you I'd have my nomination papers burned before the match was lit. I wouldn't survive the crap I did from age 12 to 18. Let's not even discuss the college and teaching years. And those only take me to the age of forty-two. Good Lord, I'd still have twenty-seven years of self-imposed embarrassment and obfuscation to cover up.

Are the American stupid? absolutely. Do yourself a favor. Stay up and watch Jimmy Kimmel on TV doing his stunts. They involve numerous man on the street stunts to show how totally ignorant our citizenry are on people, places and things. And then they laugh at their own stupidity. And these people are supposedly the smart ones. They could care less the country sees them as mental midgets.

Jesse Watters does a schtick on Fox doing essentially the same. He'll visit a college campus interviewing students. The questions go like this: "Who is the vice-president of the United States(No lie. This happened last week)? Forget that he goes to Ivy Leagues schools but, that in itself, is highly significant. Invariably, these 'students' are clueless. But ask them about a current singer or movie and the answer literally jumps off their tongues.

I don't blame Gruber, the man who received $400,000 of  our taxpayer money by then ObamaCare czar, Kathleen Sebelius, for his admissions. What I do detest is how he tried to pull the wool over the eyes of the people by lying. But in this administration uber fibbing is their chief modus operandi for the implementation of policy.

Gruber broke down and visited the show of Ronan Farrow of MSNBC on Monday to explain his words. The hard-hitting Farrow, the winner of The Walter Cronkite Award for journalism(Are you kidding me) after two weeks on the air, accepted Gruber's explanation. "It was a slip of the lip on my part and I apologize", said Gruber. Oops! The MIT prof made the statement prior to the revelation there were two more videos out there in Video Land saying those same words. "This would now be three slips of the lips, Professor Gruber". My suggestion for you; rub a dab of crazy glue in front of your teeth before you go on stage again".

"Hey Johnathan, you dumbass, the only reason you apologized is because you got nailed". It's the same situation as a guy found guilty of murdering five people, gets sentenced to death, then apologizes to the family of the dead. The SOB got caught. That's why he apologized. That and he hopes he doesn't get the needle.

Did you catch my asterisk** in this piece? I hope so. If not let me explain from a quote you've heard before. "You have to pass the bill before you know what's in it".**

Well, it happened thanks to the stupid people. And all of you who supported the, "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan you can keep your plan. Your health care costs won't increase one thin dime. Your costs will decrease by $2,500 dollar".  You are what Gruber told us. You are---dumber than dirt.

* A 4th video has surfaced
**Nancy Pelosi

If you aren't one of the stupid people you'll be able to open the link and watch and listen to the good professor perform is magic.

Waiting In Line At Starbucks?

dedicated to Peter W.

I had to make a beehive to the golf course this morning. Today, according to our trusty weatherman, is the last time I can make a fool of my self on the links this year. There was a news blurb on Drudge this morning about the states that will see snowfall by Saturday, 44 of them.

Anyway, as I was speeding down Bethel Road in Columbus I spotted a Starbucks and made a quick right into the parking lot. It was then that I shook my head in wonderment. There were 17 cars in the drive-thru lane waiting to pick up their lattes. This baffles me as to why people would wait in line(emphasis on 'wait') instead of walking into the shop to buy a cup of Joe when they could be in and out the door in three, maybe four minutes tops.

The best aspect of this article, since we're all creatures of habit, is that you, too, will begin to take notice of these senseless habits. I absolutely know every time you pass a fast food establishment, a Dunkin' Donut or Starbucks you'll ask the question: Why are these tax payers wasting millions of gallons of fuel by sitting in line to buy brown water? I'll allow for one excuse. If the car is loaded with little kiddies that's okay. If not, then what is their problem?

For years folks have been complaining about the price of gas. "Hey, it might be under $3 per gallon now but it wasn't that long ago that it was hovering around $4 per". Now consider this. Each and every town and city in the United States experiences this 'fuel wasting' every morning, noon, night and even into the wee hours to sober up the drunk crowd.

The way I figure, the Starbucks people, mostly ladies driving their BMW's, can easily afford their skinny mocha's so what's the sweat? But, how about the Wendy's and Burger King crowds? These are union guys in rusted out trucks. You'll see school teachers and old ladies, mom's in hair curlers and fat old codgers in suspenders holding up their bibs waiting in line for Double Whoppers and fries. All of them are wasting fuel because they're too lazy to park their car, walk twenty feet to the front doors and open them to be greeted with, "Welcome to Wendy's. Can I take your order, please".

It's no wonder we have so many citizens with humongous butts. Not to mention the senseless burning of billions of dollars in gasoline exhausted into the atmosphere every year.

Truth be told I'm not a curmudgeon on the subject of fuel and food and waiting. I don't care if Sally Anne buys coffee and waits in the wrong line for eighteen hours. It's only an observation on my part. I do enjoy watching the human condition. Maybe I'll apply to a government agency to receive a million dollars to run a study on the subject as to why. Or maybe not.

Proof From Hollywood That Helen Keller Should Have Been Aborted


Forget speaking for the voiceless – according to Hollywood. Actress and abortion absolutist Ellen Barkin took to Twitter Nov. 1 to declare when life begins. (She’s not a scientist, but maybe she played one on TV once.) According to Barkin, fetuses, babies and infants are not “persons” because they “cannot talk.”

Image: Landrieu's Katrina Attack on Cassidy Backfires

It's shocking this story about Mary Landrieu hasn't gone viral. Have you heard about it? There's going to be a run off vote on December 6 to determine the senator from Louisiana to the Senate. Since no one received 50% of the vote in last Tuesday's election the Louisiana constitution calls for one.

Last Wednesday Landrieu wanted to get the jump on her opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy, so she grabbed a bullhorn and let fly. The sitting senator posed these questions for Mr. Cassidy. "Where were you when Katrina happened? What did you do to make things better for the people"? She went on, "I was right here making sure the people knew their senator was looking out for them".

Don't these people have campaign managers? I would think vetting facts might be somewhat important. The next part of this story is so delicious it should be plastered on Republican campaign headquarters across the nation until the end of time.

As soon as Mr. Cassidy, also known as Dr. Bill Cassidy, heard about Landrieu's tirade he had quick responses.

"Well", he said, "When Katrina took place I wasn't in congress. I was a private citizen". It gets better.
Cassidy went on. "When the hurricane hit three of my doctor friends and myself took over an abandoned K-Mart and set up a hospital to treat the injured. We secured volunteers, 150 nurses along with many members of local churches. We donated our time and services to do the best job we could for the people".

How in God's name did Landrieu's people not know this? I don't want to say the Democrats in Louisiana are significantly stupid. I don't want to but I will.

Author Of ObamaCare: "We Knew The American People Were Stupid"

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said that lack of transparency was a major part of getting Obamacare passed because “the stupidity of the American voter” would have killed the law if more people knew what was in it.
Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a technical consultant to the Obama administration during Obamacare’s design, also made clear during a panel quietly captured on video that the individual mandate, which was only upheld by the Supreme Court because it was a tax, was not actually a tax.

Another Deadly Disease From Central America Infects 300,000 Americans

The tropical Chagas disease is spread by by contact with the “kissing bug.” The disease is common in Mexico, Central America or South America – countries such as Nicaragua, Guatemala, and El Salvador. About 7 million to 8 million people are estimated to be infected worldwide, mostly in Latin America.
Barack Obama has brought 60,000 children from these countries into the US in this year.
The disease is spread by the feces of the kissing bug.

Nancy Speaks And Nobody Listens

It didn't take long for Nancy Pelosi to make an appearance in front of a microphone. She's the Debbie Wasserman Schultz of the 'Check Out' generation. Ms. Pelosi called last Tuesday's election results a ripple, not a wave. "Whatever you say, Nancy".

Did you catch Harry Reid at yesterday's White House "Compromise" confab? He was a man of stone. He didn't move. His face was expressionless in his own special way; contorted in a constant scowl. In other words, he looked the way he always does.

It's my wish to be positive about Harry and Nancy. I'd like to personally thank them for their service to this great nation. When I have thoughts of these two Americans I have a smile on my face. Every day when they wake up they're one day closer to being dead. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?

The Two Worst Presidents In The History Of the United States


Blacks In The Congress: What's The Big Deal

Tim Scott(R-SC) won was his senatorial bid this week. He's the first Black Republican from the South to be elected. Democrats didn't consider him legitimate before the 2014 election even though he was already a senator. Since he was appointed to the position two years ago members of the Congressional Black Caucus said it didn't count because he was illegitimate. After his victory they've changed their tune and now call him an "Uncle Tom". The poor guy can't catch a break.  If you don't think the MSM thinks he's a sellout then click on the link to find out exactly what they feel about a Black Republican.

I don't believe the Democrats should pat themselves on the back as much as they do when it comes to Blacks in the congress. It wasn't until 1992 when the first Black Democrat, Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill), was seated. Braun served one term, 1993-1999. If my math is correct two decades ago, when she took office, I was a middle aged man. It's not exactly like we're talking Greek or Roman history.

Congratulations, Dems, you're way ahead of the Republicans having Braun as a Black Senator, right? Wrong? The first Black in the Senate after the Reconstruction Period was Sen. Edward Brooke from Massachusetts. His term encompassed the years of 1967-1979. Once again Republicans, the true abolitionists, were way ahead of the curve.

Democrats, the party of the Ku Klux Klan, all three of them have, have left their stained legacy on America. The Party of Al Gore, Sr.(D-Tenn). and Bill Clinton's hero from Arkansas, Sen. J. William Fulbright, racist segregationists were Democrats. Fulbright's fellow citizen,  Gov. Orval Faubus forced Eisenhower to send troops to Little Rock so black children could attend school. Surprise, Faubus was a Democrat as was Gov. George Wallace, Alabama, who famously said, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" not to be outdone by, "If a demonstrator(aka negro) lies down in front of my car it'll be the last car they ever lie down in front of".

Had it not been for Republicans there never would have been a 1965 Voting Rights Act. Lyndon Johnson needed Republican votes to get to get it passed and with the help of Illinois senator, Everett Dirksen, got the legislation he wanted. LBJ knew he wouldn't get the votes from southern Democrats. Or, as Johnson said later, "If I can get this piece of legislation passed niggers will be voting democrat for the next two hundred years". Is Texas a southern state? I thought so. Was Johnson a Dem? Bingo.

Fire hoses unleashed on groups of blacks marching for civil rights, beatings on the street for eating in a Whites Only restaurant, using a Whites Only bathroom by blacks saw the unleashing of German Shepherd's. This was all standard operating procedure done by Democrats against the people who today give them 95% of the vote. It's also the party that has chained them to a lifetime of poverty and subservience to be their political masters. Blacks are to Democrats what indentured servants were to their former masters in the post-Civil War South. They're always in debt with no way out hoping their EBT cards won't run out and the heat won't be shut off in their homes.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest there have been more lynchings of Blacks by Democrats than by Republicans. I don't even need to quote statistics. All I have to do is make the statement and the response I'd receive would be, "Well, Duh"!

Think about this: James Earl Ray, a racist democrat assassinated a Republican named of Dr. Martin Luther King. "Care to comment on that sentence, Al and Jesse"?

I read a very humorous quote today from Charles Barkley, NBA commentator and former professional basketball player. He said, "Poor people have been voting Democrat for fifty years and they're still poor". It couldn't be said any better.

A message to Black America from the Spanish essayist, poet and philosopher, George Santayana,
"Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it."

What else is there to say other than, "ladies and gentleman, when are you going to wise up"?

How Popular Is MSNBC & CNN

According to the Weather Channel, its 6am "Wake Up with Al Roker" beat both CNN's New Day" and MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

"Morning Joe" has been shedding viewers for about a year. "New Day" is shaping up to be one of television's all-time titanic disasters. In other words, it's not that Al Roker's numbers are so high, it's that CNN's and MSNBC's numbers are so low.
Overall, this is another sign of the slow-motion fall of left-wing cable news networks. While -- thanks to great producing, on-air talent, and a willingness to cover news stories the left-wing MSM ignore -- Fox News soars, there is just no reason anymore to tune into CNN or MSNBC.

What Do These Newly Elected Senators All Have In Common

Senators Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), David Perdue (R-Ga.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).

No, I didn't want to hear they were all members of the same political party. That'd be too easy. There's another aspect of this election that is extremely significant and most likely the number one reason for the Obama rout.

Each and every one of these newbies campaigned on the promise of repealing ObamaCare. In two weeks or less the healthcare rates for 2015 are going to be released. Regardless of what the head man says the numbers will be so high he'll be, once again, stumbling over his words and feigning ignorance.

The War On Women That Wasn't

Mia Love ran for a seat in the House of Representatives and won. The young woman is a Republican. Mia is from the state of Utah, Mormon country and very, very White. Can we please put to rest the mantra that Republicans are racists. And while were at it let's stop the War on Women nonsense.

Joni Ernst became the first woman elected to Congress in Iowa. She defeated Rep. Bruce Braley, a trial lawyer who became notorious for missteps along the campaign trail. Ernst will also be the first female combat veteran to serve in the Senate.

West Virginia elected its first female senator. Shelley Moore Capito defeated Democrat Natalie Tennant to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Jay Rockefeller.

Republican women also fared well in House races.

Barbara Comstock won the 10th congressional district in Virginia against John Foust, who came under fire as an elitist when it was discovered his wife’s OBGYN practice does not accept Medicaid.

Elise Stefanik became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. She won New York’s 21st district, defeating Democrat Aaron Woolf, a filmmaker.

Words Of Wisdom From The Council Bluffs Cowboy

My good friend, The Council Bluffs Cowboy, is my western Iowa correspondent. He's one of those fellas who will read an article or some piece of my work then have a counter point. It's not that he's all-time argumentative. He always believes we should think about things until we get the entire story.

The Cowboy sent me a tidbit of wisdom this morning and I had to pass it along. He said he borrowed it from another source but it sounds a heck of a lot like him. Truth be told it was a comment on

"When you go to vote on Tuesday, ask yourself this question:
Am I more likely to be broke, infected, or beheaded
than I was six years ago"?

Voters Who Cause Me To Scratch My Head

Every so often I'll stop into a fast food restaurant. I never use the drive thru. It's a waste of gasoline. It's a proven scientific fact that ten drive thru people are seriously obese and waste more fuel waiting than all drivers in LA on their go home from work.

Anyway, let's say I stop in at Wendy's for a quick pick up of two kid's cheeseburgers. We'll also say there is a Ma and Pa in front of me and twelve people ahead of them.

Wendy's has a huge menu board across the counter for diners to figure out what they want before they get to the ordering station. I'm one of those guys who knows what he wants before I walk through the door. Others not so.

After some time, more than I can stand unless a hot looking woman is next to me, Ma and Pa are up for ordering. The next conversation is classic and occurs all to often. Ma says, "Oh, I don't know. What do you think Pa"? Then she'll rattle off five or six different items she might want. It's so tedious I want to smack butt with a cattle prod and tell her to get on with it. Finally, thank God, she says to the kid at the counter, "Oh, give me a hamburger, fries and a diet Coke". All that for something my two year old grandson could handle and in a lot less time.

This scenario brings me to the Iowa senatorial race between  the Republican, Joni Ernst, and the Democrat, Bruce Braley. According to the latest polls Mrs. Ernst is up on Braley by 7 points. Here it is, one day before the election, and I was reading today's Des Moines Register about who was voting for whom. Get this. There are today, says the Register, 9 percent of the voting population who have not made up their minds. They are undecided.

This is mindboggling. They've been looking at the menu for over a year. These candidates have told every lie about their opponent possible and we all know how wonderful they are because they've told us 24/7. The 'Undecided' are folks I don't know or hang around with at all.
I believe they happen to be a myth. I've never met one and I'm certain you haven't, either. Everyone has an opinion. If you asked anybody on the street or down at the city dump how they felt about crayons you'd get an answer. If you asked the man on the street if they were voting for Joni, Bruce or Adolf Hitler you'd get an answer. So why the big problem with making a decision on Braley and Ernst?

Show me an 'Undecided' and I'll show you someone who doesn't know if they want fries, a cup of chili or a kick in the head.

A Political Tsunami

It's the height of optimism to write this piece and present it in blog form for you folks to see. My prediction on the outcome of Tuesday's election is a tidal wave of enthusiasm calling for the beginning of a new America, a fresh start if you will. Out with the old and in with the new.

I read a commentary from a pundit,  it may have been in the NY Times, but it makes no difference. He said the Republicans lack a positive message and the reason they are voting is because it's a vote against Obama and Democrats. This, he said, is not the way to win an election. I vehemently disagree.

The American people are fed up to their collective necks with the negativism that has come out of the White House just as they are with the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and his corrupt cronies.

Harken back to the words or our president. He told us, after he was elected, there would be no Red States or Blue States, only one America. To that I say, "Bull hockey".

Prior to his ascension to the throne Barack Obama made a Middle Eastern trip followed by stops to European capitols apologizing for bad actions the United States has done to the world for three hundred years. This is garbage and the giant is about to awaken.

As an example, I live in Ohio. It's a football state. The citizens love their Buckeyes and they love to win. Have you ever heard the phrase, "Winning isn't the most important thing but it's a heck of a lot better than whatever comes in second". That's the way Buckeye fans are and so are Americans. As General Patton said, "America loves a winner". The American people not only love a winner they demand one.

Americans don't like to be in second place in sports or in world affairs. We didn't make the world 'Safe for Democracy' by being apologists for our sacrifices made in both World Wars.
I promise you this. When the first and second A-bombs were dropped on Japan on August 6 and August 9 of 1945 the American people didn't wring their hands in anguish for the devastation wrought on the Japanese people who started the whole mess. The War was over and we were victorious. That's why it's called V-J Day.

Mr. Obama and the Democrat Party have made it a mission to divide this great nation; and to make our leadership on the world stage as important as if we were a Third World country.

They've used the same mantra that encompasses their entire playbook; War on Women, Pro-Choice , Racism and the environment..It doesn't work. On the list of priorities these issues rank at the bottom. Unless you happen to be a 20-year old Sociology Major at The University of California at Berkley, the environment is about as important as saving a spotted tree frog. Women want what's good for their children; food, health, security. As Sarah Palin said: "Don't mess with Mama Bear".

The attempt to create a schism in America most likely came about by accident. It happened in Cambridge, Massachusetts when a Harvard professor, a friend of Obama's, was mistakenly arrested by the local police. A neighbor of the man called the police thinking a burglar might be breaking into his home. Now, why in the name of common sense would Obama bring this up at a press conference? My guess is he thinks everything is about him and his speeches come from the Mount.  Of course, the president overreacted and told the country the police acted "stupidly". Then he had to walk this nonsense back to stem a more than controversial statement. The result was the great 'Beer Summit' with the neighbor and arresting officer, Joe Biden and himself to stem the negativity he "stupidly" planted. I wonder how much the taxpayer shelled out for a private flight to Cambridge, Mass. The answer is 'too much'.

Continued racial division took place a few years later when Obama told us, "If I had a son he would look just like Trayvon". Well, I have two sons and neither looks like me. Am I to assume my wife cheated on me? A statement like that might cause a domestic war so why should I open my mouth and say such a ridiculous statement? But, then again, Barry and Eric Holder had an agenda and I don't.
This was a very bad move by Mr. Honcho. People remember those words and words mean things.

I am not a racist. I vote for Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and women. I cast my ballots for people shorter than I. My wife and I vote issues and my suspicion is the average American citizen does, too. I checked my voter list of those for whom I cast an absentee ballot. I gave my check mark to five women and they were all running against men and I never once considered gender until I rechecked the ballot.

 I would strongly consider voting for Dr. Ben Carson if he ran for president. He's smart, a good man who grew up in poverty in Detroit and became the head of the pediatric department at Johns Hopkins University. I trust what he says and I appreciate his stances. I would never give my sacred vote to Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters or Marion Berry. Does that make me racist? I don't believe it does. It makes me sane.

I believe in casting my ballot for a person with integrity, someone with whom I share the same values. I'd like to believe the people I support would believe exactly as I do on every issue but that's an impossibility. We all need to accept compromise on certain issues and hope for the best. Compromise is a word not in this presidents vocabulary.

I vote for candidates who believe in this country first and what's best for the American people. After all, they are supposed to work for us but in Washington D.C. that isn't always the case with both parties.

In 2008 I held my nose and voted for John McCain. He wasn't a fighter. I felt he was all about John McCain and, furthermore, it's my belief he didn't wish to win so he could remain in the senatorial 'old boys club'.

The Republican Party as of November 5 will be positioned to take control of the House and Senate in January and it won't be close. It's going to be a tsunami for both the House and Senate.

Even if the Senate is held by the Republicans for only two years it will be a magnificent two years. I won't have to see Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin, crooks who make William Marcy Tweed look like a boy scout. They'll have much less face time to slam the people on the Right for being out of touch with the mainstream. The only place they'll be seen is on Sunday morning's Meet The Press which has the same viewership as The Rachel Maddow Show.

Don't get me wrong. There are a couple of bad guys on the Right, too. Roy Blount is a prime example. PAC money seems to have a direct pipeline to his wallet. But, there are others out there, Ted Cruz for instance, who might bring some sanity to the Senate. It's my hope that Mitch McConnell will be so muted he'll have the voice power of Charlie McCarthy when he's in his suitcase.

Two years without Harry Reid, the guy from Torchlight, Nevada. It's akin to the old line from the movie, Field of Dreams. "Is this heaven"? "No", said the American voter, "It's the United States of America".
