HOW TO MAKE A DEMOCRAT MAD

Want to make a Democrat mad? Just accuse them of the things that they accuse Republicans of day in and day out. Democrats just love to say that we don’t care about the poor or that we don’t want the folks to have access to health care. Of course, we’ve all heard the rhetoric that we’re nothing but a bunch of racist bigots who dislike the current President of the United States just because he’s black. Well, he’s actually half black. His mother was white and his grandmother was a “typical white woman.”

About a year ago, I had the audacity to comment on a liberal friend’s Facebook post to the effect that it was really the Democrats who view women as inferiors. It’s the Democrats who are of the opinion that the Federal Government should pay for every woman’s birth control because women don’t have the self-control to manage their own libidos. In other words, it’s not the Republicans who have declared a war on women; instead, it’s the Democrats. Instead of engaging in reasonable discussion with me on the issue, I found myself subject to accusations that were not even related to the nature of my post.

Now this particular liberal/progressive/Democrat is an informed voter. She’s very active in the Democrat party and believes that big government is the only way to solve our nation’s problems. Needless to say, she is pro-choice, pro-illegal immigration, claims to be on the side of the poor and the down-trodden, yada, yada, yada. When I opined in my comment that I felt that it was the Democrats who were engaging in the war on women, she seemed to go into some kind of trance and commented back to me “canned verbiage” that she may have been taught at some progressive leadership seminar. It was really laughable.

The point that I’m attempting to make with this post is that Democrats seemed to get very mad and start hurling false accusations and begin name calling when you point out that the very things in which they accuse Republicans; they are even guiltier of.

Low information voters and those who get their information from the network news and other mainstream media outlets are apt to believe that Republicans dislike the current president because of his skin color. They are also apt to believe all of the garbage that is global warming/climate change. The mainstream media and this Democrat administration tell the low information electorate that the ever changing climate of the earth is a result of man-made carbon dioxide emissions, and if the low information voters don’t have time or are not inclined to look into the other side, they’re going fall for this lie; hook, line, and sinker. There are many, many more examples similar to the ones above that I could cite.

Then when they hear Democrats calling Republicans all sorts of names indicating that they are bigots, don’t care about the environment, don’t care about the poor, and want people to die because they are against socialize medicine, they think all of that is true. Then if you have the audacity to point out to them that it’s the Democrats that want to take our healthcare away from us resulting in more people dying earlier, they go crazy and call you even more names.

And forget even suggesting getting together and having a rational discussion of the issues, they’re not about to do that because they know they’re wrong and you’re right. All they’re capable of is name calling and hurling insults. And it’s frustrating that it seems to work on low information voters.

FUNDAMENTALLY UNSERIOUS

According to Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the current president of the United States is “fundamentally unserious” about the Ebola crisis that is unfolding right before our very eyes. This is certainly true. In fact, this president has been fundamentally unserious about most everything related to his presidency except fundamentally transforming this great nation into a totalitarian socialistic nanny state.

Allow me to list the things that this president doesn’t seem to give a “flip” about:

  • Fast and Furious
  • Benghazi
  • The IRS targeting of conservatives
  • Russian aggression into the Ukraine
  • The terror group, ISIS
  • The Marine Sergeant held prisoner in Mexico, Sergeant Tamoressee
  • The national debt
  • Unemployment

And there are many more, but my memory is not as good as it used to be and I’m not able to come up with others off the top of my head. Of course, he has time to stick is head into the Ferguson, Missouri matter where police misconduct is being alleged, a matter that should be handled locally in its entirety. Of course, let’s not forget about fundraising for Democrat candidates for the upcoming mid-term election. He loves doing that. It seems as though nothing can stop him from getting out there and blaming all of his problems on the Republicans.

In the last twenty-four to thirty-six hours, though, the current president has cancelled at least two fundraisers and travelled back to Washington to address the Ebola crisis that has our nations people fearing a pandemic. Now, just why is this president cancelling events that he loves so much to spend time making an effort to protect the American people? He’s never cared about protecting them before. What’s changed?

Maybe the Ebola crisis is indeed serious and this president know it and he’s decided to do what he was voted into office to do, protect the American people. I’m cynical and I admit it. This president has never demonstrated that he cared about doing his job. So, what has changed?

In my humble opinion, the mid-term elections are less than three weeks away. Two years ago, he managed to convince the American people that he cares about them and their needs by acting noble in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy which ravaged highly populated areas of the east coast during October 2012, also coined as the 2012 election year’s October surprise.

Could the current president’s sudden showing of empathy be his way of convincing the American electorate that he cares about them? I’m sure that his handlers were begging him to show more interest in this, another American crisis. Did they convince him that cancelling a few person appearances to show interest in the Ebola outbreak in certain West African nations and its potential to spread to the United States? I think that’s a possibility. I’m not going to discuss the details of the Ebola crisis in this post. Just pay attention to the news and you’ll be able to find out all that you need to know and probably more than you want to know. My purpose here is to put thoughts in your head. Are things really that serious that the current president is cancelling fundraisers to come back to Washington to address the Ebola crisis? No other crisis appears to have been that important. Or is he really scared that the Republicans are going to win back the Senate in November and he wants to give the American people the impression that he really cares about them?

ONCE AGAIN SUSAN RICE LIES TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC

Following the attacks on the American Embassy in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday talk shows and informed the American people that the Benghazi attacks were the result of an offensive anti-Islamic video that was made by someone in the United States. Well we all know that Ambassador Rice lied, yes she lied. Was she ordered to lie by powers at be? I don’t know.

Well, once again, Susan Rice, now National Security Advisor, is in the news. Ms. Rice has once again made an appearance on a Sunday talk shows announcing that the United States had made a diplomatic breakthrough in talks with NATO ally, Turkey. According to hotair.com, the Pentagon, on Sunday, revealed that an agreement had been reached with officials in Ankara to allow American warplanes to use Turkish bases as part of the air campaign over Syria. Turkey also reportedly agreed to provide some rebels fighting in Syria with light arms and to train some groups engaged in the fight against ISIS infantry tactics.

Hotair.com continues to indicate that U.S. officials said again on Monday that Turkey would let U.S. and coalition forces use its bases, including Incirlik air base, which is within 100 miles of the Syrian border, for operations against the Islamic-State militants in Syria and Iraq. However, emerging Monday from a Cabinet meeting, Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Bulent Arinc, said that “apart from the existing cooperation in combatting terrorism, there is no new situation concerning Incirlik air base. The deputy premier added that Turkey had proposed the use of some of its bases to train and equip moderate opposition forces fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, but said the sides had not yet come to any agreement.

In his hotair article, “Susan Rice liked to you…again,” Noah Rothman indicates that both Rice and the Pentagon had to know than any cooperation agreement with the United States was likely to inflame the sensitive domestic situation inside Turkey, in which a significant portion of the population is relatively indifferent toward the Islamic State and hostile toward the West. The rush to announce this deal can be most charitable interpreted as an effort by administration officials to promote the fact that the United States had achieved a victory – any victory – in the more than two month old war against ISIS.

November 4 will be here before you know it and the current president and his henchmen are desperately trying to show something positive resulting from this administration’s activities. And they’re finding it difficult with the Susan Rice show backfiring on them.

With the Benghazi fiasco plus this past Sunday’s fiasco, and National Security Advisor Rice indicating that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction; when, in fact, Stg. Bergdahl was described by former platoon as a possible deserter, how can this woman be taken seriously? She’s a buffoon!

Shortly after Benghazi, a liberal friend and strong Obama supporter said to me, “Maybe someone told her to say that.” Well, maybe so and we need to go after such a person or persons. Susan Rice lies and the current president lies, and this administration as a whole lies. And you know something, the American people accept it. This world is in the worst shape that it’s ever been in my lifetime. ISIS is a major threat to our security and sovereignty. Now, we’ve just found out that a second healthcare worker who provided care to Thomas Duncan. This healthcare has just flown on an airplane and thus, many others may have been exposed.

We are being lied to, being told half-truths; and still there are folks who support this administration. WHY? I ask. WHY?

BLAME EBOLA OUTBREAK ON THE REPUBLICANS

First it was racism that caused the death of Thomas Duncan, the first person to die from Ebola in the United States. Now, because a medical professional in Dallas, Texas, who cared for Mr. Duncan has been diagnosed with Ebola, even though she allegedly took all the precautions, the Democrats are now saying that the potential outbreak of Ebola in the United States is due the Republicans.

According to dailycaller.com, the Head of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, claim budget cuts were to blame for a lack of vaccine. Dr. Francis told the Huffington Post, “we’re on a slower track than would have been ideal or would have happened if we had been on a stable research support trajectory. ”

Jim Geraghty, of the National Review, reports that the NIH budget has doubled since 2000. Mr. Geraghty goes on the report that allocations to the U.S. Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases rose to $4.3 billion in 2004 from $1.8 billion in 2000.

The dailycaller goes on to report that a tax exempt charity group called, Agenda Project Action Fund has launched an attack directly blaming the GOP for cutting funding to fight the disease. The ad says that Republicans, like rabid dogs in a butcher shop, have indiscriminately shredded everything in their paths, including critical programs that could have dealt with the Ebola crisis before it reached the United States. The progressive group has plan to run ads in Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, and South Dakota later in October.

Again, according to the dailycaller, the website, healthcare.gov cost close to $1 billion, $500 million was wasted on Solyndra, and $1.3 million was spent on signs announcing road crews were spending stimulus money, and $600,000 was spent on planting trees in rich neighborhoods. And the list goes on and on. The $1 trillion stimulus bill was passed and implemented when Democrats controlled Congress and it was spent according to their will.
It’s mind-boggling; it’s just plain mind-boggling that such falsehoods can be put out there to be absorbed by low information voters. Then it is inevitable that the low information voters will be encouraged to go to the polls and vote against those horrible Republicans who hate the poor, want children to starve, and are against everyone having health insurance.

Being a Republican, I believe that the private sector can do most things better than the government. With the threat of Ebola growing in intensity every passing day, the Federal government would do well to lift some of the oppressive regulations that it has placed upon the private pharmaceutical companies and let the private sector see what it can do to implement vaccines to combat Ebola.

According to an article written by Lurita Doan for townhall.com in February 2012, during the Bush Administration, Congressman Henry Waxman often pummeled the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), demanding more oversight and more regulatory reviews in an unrealistic quest to find perfect, risk-free medications. When the current President took over, the Democrats took over the FDA and implemented the strategy of excessive regulatory control that Waxman had advocated.

The effect of these oppressive regulations slowed new pharmaceutical development to a crawl and put the United States in danger of losing its leadership in new drug development. Ms. Doan further writes that in 1996, the FDA approved approximately forty-five new drugs and the world clamored to buy American pharmaceuticals. Even though its budget has increased, its manpower has increased, and the FDA has the benefit of more sophisticated technology, it approves only twenty new drugs each year. In other words, the USA’s competitive edge is eroding and the entrepreneurs that once created the world’s most innovative products have been stymied. Inventors and investors worry that no new medical product, regardless of its effectiveness, can navigate the bizarre and expensive FDA path to approval.

What if our government would lift all regulations than have been put in place against pharmaceuticals going back to 1996, then rollback all FDA policies to 1996 and allow the drug companies to hit the ground running in their efforts to develop a vaccine that would be effective against Ebola. I really am convinced that the job would get done. As Larry the Cable Guy would say, “Get er done.”

Also, it would help if all flights from countries where there is an Ebola epidemic were banned. Of course, humanitarian aid workers would be allowed to travel freely between those countries and the United States. But you know, that would make too much sense, so let’s blame the Republicans.
In closing, I would like to acknowledge Derek Hunter of dailycaller.com, Jim Geraghty of the National Review, and Lurita Doan of townhall.com for their excellent and concise reporting.

Racism Again?

We all know by now that Thomas Duncan, Liberian National, has died of Ebola in a Dallas, Texas hospital. Yesterday, one of the “talking heads” predicted that because Mr. Duncan was a black man, the liberals/democrats would inject race into the mix and say that Mr. Duncan didn’t get the proper care and treatment because he was black. Sure enough, that’s happening.

Was it racism? I have no idea because I don’t even know what racism is anymore. Not being a proponent of the current half black/half white president’s policies on governing this nation, according to liberals/democrats, is racist; even though I’ve never been in favor of his policies when they were proposed by past white presidents. The fact that I don’t like the current president makes me a racist even though I didn’t like Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton either.

The following is my definition of racism: Being treated differently because of skin color or ethnicity that causes measurable harm. This is the type of racism that we need to be made aware of when it occurs and strive to correct it.

While I’ve never been to any minority support group meetings, many years ago, I attended a business/professional women’s group meeting. I was going for the purpose of getting tips and recommendations as to how to be my best in a world that was dominated by men. Should I take up a sport such as golf? Should I become familiar with the NBA, NFL, and major league baseball? To what extend should I keep up with current events? Did I waste my time or what? This workshop was totally about how to combat men, not work successfully with them. Several women spoke about how shabbily they had been treated by men with whom they worked. Not wanting to have anything to do with this group, I got up and left before the thing was over.

As I indicated above, I have never been to any type of minority support meeting; however, I’m sure that in such meetings, black leaders encourage attendees to look out for any evidence of racism and “create a stink” when it happens. One morning a number of years ago, I arrived at my building, got on the elevator, went up to my floor, and went to my office. A minute or so after I got to my office a black woman came in and accosted me for not holding the elevator door open for her. I was taken aback. It was early morning and I didn’t remember seeing her trying to get on the elevator. And even if I had, was I obligated to hold the door for her? NO. Is it polite to try to hold an elevator door for someone who is apparently wants to get on? YES. How many of us have hurried toward an elevator only to notice that the folks inside didn’t make an effort to hold it? And how many of us have tried to hold an elevator and managed to push the close button or not get to the button in time? The lady was vocal about it and reported it to her supervisor. Nothing ever came of it, though. I really wanted to say to that lady, “Honey, if having to wait a couple of extra minutes for an elevator to come because someone failed to see you and hold the door for you, you’ve had a great life, certainly better than me.”

The silly incident that I described above, and others such as hollering racism because a group of white folks were seated at a restaurant before your group, even though the white folks arrived after your group only masks true and real racism that should be dealt with and corrected.

I’ve known and currently know many medical professionals. These folks will be the first to admit that they don’t see people in terms of race. Sick people and injured people and sick and injured people.

I heard on the news that Mr. Duncan didn’t have health insurance. Could that have been a reason why he was initially sent home with medication and not admitted? That, I don’t know. While I’ve never been an eyewitness, I have heard things to the effect that hospitals and medical facilities do treat patients differently if they don’t have insurance.

Ebola is serious, it kills. And I don’t believe a thing that the current administration and the CDC are saying. I have no trust in either what-so-ever. All I can do is pray that the disease can be isolated and stamped out. The minority leaders hollering racism at a time of this crisis is just going to further divide the American people and perhaps mask the real issue that is the spread of Ebola in the United States.

Do these minority leaders care about the people whom they claim to serve? I don’t think so. In my opinion, all they care about is themselves. If they can’t holler racism and make up racism even when it doesn’t exist, they’re out of a job. Think about it. What would the Jesse Jackson’s and the Al Sharpton’s of the world do if racism didn’t exist?

In closing, I welcome all to read this article and if you so choose, tell me and the readers about your experience with racism and how you were damaged by it. Keep in mind that I don’t want to hear your story about how a white teenager with braces and acne acted rude to you in a local fast food restaurant. I hope you get my drift.
