UNLEASHED LIBERALS

Years and years ago, I heard Rush Limbaugh comment that liberals were the craziest when they were out of power.

Now that the left no longer has the presidency, the Congress, and hopefully soon, power will return to the right on the Supreme Court, we have unleashed liberals, saying anything to get attention, not caring if it is true or false.

I often use the term, “tolerant left.” I have even told some folks that I coined the term. Bill O’Reilly has used the term, but only after I used it. It’s no secret to anyone that liberals are the most tolerant and open-minded people on earth except when you don’t agree with them and where they stand on political issues. Then you are subject to ridicule and being called a moron, idiot, clueless, and a few other monikers which I won’t put in print.

A week ago, an interesting looking article appeared on my newsfeed. The headline read: Trump Takes Breather from White House, Hold Rally this Weekend

This article was shared by a liberal and contained comments by unleashed liberals. According to most news outlets, President Trump has worked every day since he’s been in office, but these unleashed liberals were accusing him of taking the weekends off. In fact, on this particular weekend, it was announced early on Friday (February 17, 2017) that after going to the Charleston Boeing plant for the unveiling of a new plane, that he would be spending a weekend working at Mar-a-Lago. The unleashed liberals claimed that he had already taken three vacations since becoming president. The unleashed liberals were also complaining about the so-called campaign rally that he was holding late Saturday afternoon, saying that he had better things to do with his time that attend a rally. One poster on another thread implied that the president only worked 9-5, five days a week.

The problems with these unleashed liberals, among other things, is they can’t seem to understand what they read. Ever since I’ve been commenting on liberal threads, I often must explain what I write two or three times to get a liberal to understand what I’m writing about. It makes me wonder if, to avoid admitting to being wrong, they’re attempting to change the subject.

When I commented, asking the participants on the thread, would they rather the president play golf or go on a date night like Obama was continuously doing, the comments were generally that he should be doing the country’s work, instead. One commenter even said there was no precedence for such a rally. Again, the unleashed liberals can’t comprehend what they read or hear. No precedence for such a rally? Does there have to be. Remember, Jimmy Carter started his presidency out with those fireside chats, a new thing in the era of television. Not since Franklin Roosevelt had that been done. I further pointed out to the unleashed liberals that Obama held multiple rallies when foisting Obamacare on the American people. They denied it, but, as usual, they were wrong. After one commenter kept insisting that he had better things with that two hours Saturday evening that to hold a rally, I got a little chippy and indicated that she should apply for the position of scheduling advisor.

These threads, whether they are conservative leaning or liberal leaning always get off subject. One commenter asked about FEMA aid for the New Orleans tornado victims and for the Oroville damn scenario in California. I had read where California Governor Moonbeam had an acknowledgement from President Trump that assistance was approved and on the way. While I never heard anything about FEMA assistance to New Orleans. If it had been delayed, we would have heard about it. You can “betcha” bottom dollar. Of course, one unleashed liberal whined because she thought President Trump should have said something about the disasters. Upon this, I informed her that during the Nashville, Tennessee flood of 2010, Obama never talked about it, nor did he visit the Nashville area. I then threw in the fact that after the generational tornado outbreak on April 27, 2011 where parts of the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia were devastated by long-form violent tornadoes, the only thing Obama did was visit Tuscaloosa, Alabama a few weeks after the fact.

The thread got very contentions with a number of the commenters piling on me, which is nothing new. At one point, one of the commenters attacked me in way that I have never been attacked, even by the most hate-filled unleashed liberals. At first, I laughed and shook my head. But after several hours, I started thinking that this particular attack was way out of line. I responded to the commenter that his/her (couldn’t tell from first name if man or woman) comments may have crossed the line when it comes to appropriateness. I then asked this person to take the comments down. I wasn’t holding my breath that the comments would be removed, but in less than twenty-four hours, they were.

Before their gal lost the election, liberals were the real haters, racists, bigots, and liars. Plus, they’ve always had trouble with reading comprehension and don’t care about the truth. Get ready, this new wave of unleashed liberals is becoming their former selves on steroids.

MELBOURNE CAMPAIGN RALLY

Was the so-called Melbourne campaign rally held by President Trump at the Melbourne-Orlando International Airport a waste of time or a stroke of genius?

campaignrally

When the Melbourne campaign rally was first announced, I was indifferent about it. It was being billed as a campaign rally because President Trump had already signed up to run for president in 2020 and the funds to pay for the rally were coming out of the campaign.

Of course, it goes without saying that those of the “tolerant left” totally trashed it. Here are a few of the comments that were made on a liberal thread to an article from Poliltico entitled, “Trump to Take Breather from White House, Hold Rally this Weekend.”

  • Hasn’t he taken a break every weekend so far?
  • He’s up to avoiding news conferences.
  • Rally to make himself feel good.
  • I would rather him do his (deleted) job instead of wasting taxpayer money on his vacations. The Presidency isn’t a Monday-Friday, 9-5 job.
  • I’d rather he do his job. Did you get vacations after three weeks on any job you’ve ever had? Me either.

And these were some of the plainer vanilla comments that were made. Furthermore, on this thread, commenters were alleging that President Trump had already taken three vacations since his inauguration. That’s bunk and everyone, including the liberals who are alleging this know it. He’s worked every day or almost every day since assuming the office of the presidency. Visit whitehouse.gov to see a list of his accomplishments.

Back to the Melbourne campaign Rally, was it a waste of time or a stroke of genius. I think even the “tolerant left” would admit to themselves behind closed doors that it was a stroke of genius.

We almost lost this country and had Hillary Clinton been elected president, within four years, only remnants of the United States of America would probably remain. Former President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is a fragile think and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance, it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” (Taken from Wikiquote.org/wiki/Ronald_Reagan)

Having almost lost this country, it is up to conservatives, including Trump supporters, the President and his administration, Congress, and the Judicial system to take responsibility for seeing that our freedoms remain in place for generations to come. Trump supporters, particularly, should not become discouraged. And while there are certainly going to be mistakes made, plus the left is not ever going to give up in its quest to oust President Trump, the conservative base must stay focused and ready to fend off the flames that the “tolerant left” is sure to throw.

After the president endured a grueling week, the Melbourne campaign rally served to reinforce Trump supporters and remind them of the things that this president has already accomplished and intends to accomplish. With the Internet and social media as driving forces that no one had heard of twenty-five years ago, especially social media, Trump supporters can mix it up with the “tolerant left.”

Many of us, myself included, have at one time worked in a customer service capacity. A lot of companies require their customer service employees to attend frequent seminars designed to reinvigorate and re-instill positive attitudes related to their work. This is necessary because everyone suffers burn-out occasionally and is prone to slack or sloppiness.

President Trump, in holding the Melbourne campaign rally, seems to be adopting the above approach in keeping his base reinvigorated. Plus, he is reminding the American people of the things his administration has accomplished and providing a roadmap to what he intends to do in the weeks and months ahead.

Should he continue these rallies? Absolutely! How often? The president has not called to ask my opinion, but when he does, I’m going to tell him that every 2-1/2 to 3 months is what I would recommend. Brian Kilmeade of the Fox and Friends show recommended every two months. Or maybe whenever needed would be a possibility.

Either way, the Melbourne campaign rally served its purpose. President Trump’s base got a dose of enthusiasm, and the liberals were left with egg on their faces.

EXAMPLES OF LIBERALS BEING WRONG

The following are just a couple of examples of liberals being wrong.

Several months ago, I was reviewing my news feed on Facebook when a liberal FB friend authored a post regarding a Congressional vote on mandating that private companies give their employees a minimum of four weeks vacation. The Republican controlled Congress didn’t pass the bill and these liberals were having a field day doing what they do best, hooting and hollering to the top of their lungs about how horrible and uncaring the Congressional Republicans were. Congressmen were getting two months or more vacation and they didn’t want us, the little people to even get four weeks vacation.

WRONG! Congress was not voting on whether or not to give people working for private companies four weeks vacation. Congress was voting on whether or not to mandate that companies give employees at least four weeks vacation. These liberals were trying to make you think that the Republicans in Congress are against us little people getting four weeks of vacation.

Putting it simply, Republicans like those in Congress and like myself, feel that the amount of vacation that a company gives its employees should be left up to the company. Government shouldn’t be involved in this at all.

Needless to say, when I broke into the thread and explained this to these liberals, the discussion halted.

In 2015, an article was written on freelancechristianity.com entitled Republican Jesus…guarding ‘merica from the liberals. The main point of the article is that Republicans, a lot of whom claim to be Evangelical Christians, do not follow the teachings of Jesus.

Toward the end of the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus summarizes what following his examples requires: “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me…Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

According to the portrayal of Republican Jesus, Jesus said, “If they are hungry, cut benefits to programs that feed them. If they are sick, deny them healthcare. If they are strangers, deport them.”

Even though this article was at least a year old, I replied as follows: “Do you even know the difference between a Republican and a Democrat, a liberal and a conservative? I am a Republican and in the past, I have done extensive community service work, helping those less fortunate. Just because one is against a government program that purports to help the disadvantaged, doesn’t mean that person is against the poor, against the disabled, etc. I believe that I can best help those less fortunate through my hand to theirs, as opposed to tax dollars taken from me and going up the ladder and down the ladder with everyone taking their cut and only about three to five cents of every tax dollar actually getting to the cause. Unfortunately, this is what liberals will lead anyone that will follow them to believe and it’s wrong. In my political blog, I make an effort to clarify things, but it’s an uphill climb when I have to refute articles such as this one.”

What’s so disconcerting is the inability to reason with liberals and get them to quit making charges such as the above. If they want to argue the validity of government programs to help the poor versus helping the poor through service clubs, faith based initiatives and individuals opening up their wallets, then fine. Perhaps we can have a civilized discussion.

When you try to reason with liberals, your spoken words fall on deaf ears and your written words fall on blind eyes.  Many times they will reply to you with something way off base or try to change the subject hoping to somehow throw you off. When all else fails, they resort to hurling false accusations at you.

Liberals claims to be tolerant and open to diverse ideas. Yeah right! That’s the reason I often use the phrase, “tolerant left.” Maybe I should take steps to copyright it.

LIBERALS AND TRANSGENDER

In the last few weeks, I’ve read a number of articles posted by liberal Facebook friends about transgender individuals. The authors of the articles have attempted to convince the readers that transgender folks are not perverts or deviants, but are individuals through no fault of their own simply identify with the sex opposite to their anatomy. In other words, they may have a man’s anatomy, but feel trapped in that male body.

The king is issuing a decree that school children may use the restroom of their choice or else!

The king is issuing a decree that school children may use the restroom of their choice or else!

According to https://baptistnews.com/2016/05/13/seven-things-im-learning-about-transgender-persons/, “For a small part of humanity, the visible parts and the inner identity do not line up. For example, it is possible to be born with male genitalia, but female chromosomes or vice versa. And now brain research has demonstrated that it also is possible to be born with female genitalia, female chromosomes, but a male brain.”

So, in their push to destroy the moral fiber of our culture, liberals seem to be telling us that transgender individuals are harmless and just want the right to use the restroom where they feel the most comfortable.

It has been indicated that 3/10 of 1 percent of the American population is transgender with the population of the United States being approximately 318.9 million. So that calculates to 956,700 transgender individuals that live in the United States. So, the liberals, including the Obama administration is telling us that we have to make sweeping changes in order to accommodate 956,700 people. Ridiculous!

There are many things that make me uncomfortable out there and perhaps I need the government to provide me a safe place. One of those things is the video of the “kick six.” It makes me sad, it makes me mad, and it offends me. However, some of my friends and neighbors have it on their phones and tablets and constantly play it. Also, every time the University of Alabama and Auburn University square off for a sporting event, whether it be the Iron Bowl itself or women’s volley ball, the network is sure to show the “kick six” video. The “kick six” took place over two years ago and I’ll probably be subjected to replays of it for decades to come or until something more bizarre takes place.

The population of the state of Alabama is approximately 4.849 million. It’s been shown that approximately 2/3 of Alabamians cheer for the University of Alabama and 1/3 cheer for Auburn University. And there are certainly folks that live outside the state that cheer for these two teams. But for simplicity’s sake, I’m going to use the above stats. Two-thirds of 4.849 million is 3,234,283. So, approximately 3,234,283 people are like me and get mad, sad, and offended when the “kick six” video is played.

3.234 plus million to 956,700. I’m demanding that the government ban the “kick six” video. It is offensive to more people and makes more people uncomfortable than the measly few that have to use a restroom in which they might feel uncomfortable. If you don’t know what the “kick six” is, google it.

Furthermore, just how much time do you spend in public restrooms? If you have a day job and work outside your home, you will be using the facilities at your work place. Being generous, you probably spend a little over an hour a week in the restroom. And just how uncomfortable do you feel using the facilities at your workplace? The point I’m trying to make is that such a small segment of the population might feel uncomfortable for such a short period of time. Is this something for which we should be changing our culture and making over 317 million of our citizens uncomfortable.

If they’re thinking with two brain cells, liberals might say that it doesn’t just apply to restrooms, what about locker rooms and showers. A man showering in a women’s locker room? No, that’s just wrong!

Also, do liberals think that only innocent transgenders are going to attempt to use their restroom of choice? Knowing liberals, they probably do. However, the rest of us know that won’t be the case. Allowing men to use the women’s restroom and other facilities, or allowing women to use the men’s restroom and other facilities just allows any pervert to enter the restroom of his or her choice by simply saying he or she identifies as the opposite sex of what their outward appearance indicates.

With President Obama sending letters to every public school district in America, suggesting that they allow boys to use the girls’ facilities and vice-versa and threatening to withhold federal funds if the school district doesn’t comply is unfathomable and actually bordering on evil. Obama does not have the power as president to do this.

Liberals and the left-leaning media have condoned and even championed what this president has done in issuing executive orders and acting without Congress because they think what the president does is “good and caring” because he cares so much about the American people.

Well, what Adolph Hitler initially did in Germany was dismissed because what he did was perceived as “good and caring.” The German people bought in and drank the Kool-Aid. Before they knew it, those “good and caring” deeds evolved into evil deeds and the rest is history.

While liberals and the left-leaning media have given Obama passes when he’s acted like a dictator, this president’s “good and caring” deeds may very well be turning evil.

CHILLING THINGS TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA – PART THREE

It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who things the current president of the United States has as his number one goal to destroy this country as we know it.

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

The following is part three of a series on chilling things taking place in America.

When setting up the government of the United States, our Founding Fathers established three co-equal branches of government so that no one person or group of people would have absolute power. The Founding Fathers also implemented a system of “checks and balances” whereby the three co-equal branches of government (legislative, administrative, and judicial) would oversee the passage of laws and the enforcement of laws.

Since assuming the office of the presidency, President Barak Obama has repeatedly taken it upon himself to declare law, eliminate law, and change law without going through Congress as required by the U.S. Constitution. He took it upon himself to instruct the Department of Justice to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act and what immigration laws he wanted ignored and which ones to obey, among others.

Obama also bypassed Congress and decided to change the federal welfare laws in an obvious attempt to gather votes from America’s low-income sector. He took action to completely gut the work requirement from the Welfare Reform Act that was passed in 1996 and signed into law by former president Bill Clinton.

In his continuation to act without the consent of Congress, without Congressional approval or court order, Obama took it upon himself to release millions of dollars in money and weapons including a number of fighter jets to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. You will recall that Congress froze all federal aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government because of their terrorist activities and inhumane treatment of the Egyptian people. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called the United States an enemy like Israel that needs to be destroyed. Does this not constitute treason according to the U.S. Constitution?

In addition to the above, Obama has used a number of executive orders that would allow him to take over every form of communication, banking, and commerce in the declaration of an alleged national emergency. Also, Internet regulations have been established that would give Obama complete control of the Internet if he wanted it.

President Obama has continuously acted like he is above the law and has indicated if the leaders of Congress want to have a vote on whether or not what he is doing is illegal, they can have the vote. Then he will veto that vote because he feels that what he is doing is the right thing to do. He has never expressed that what he is doing is illegal or not, he simply says it’s the right thing to do. Well, excuse me, Mr. President, you cannot act because you think your actions are the right things to do. Barak Obama has become a dictator and the American people plus the media are allowing him to do it.

The current president has issued unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then he dares an equal branch of government to vote on the legality of his orders, so he can veto it. There was no vote in Congress, no consultation with the House and Senate, no law that gave him the authority; he just did it.

A dictator is a ruler who is not effectively restricted by a constitution, laws, recognized opposition, etc. That definition clearly defines the current president as a dictator, something our Founding Fathers too many steps to avoid. The current president has grown so bold that he even boasts of his supreme authority and defiance of Congress.

And guess what? The American people and the American media are allowing him to get away with it. The average person on the street doesn’t realize how much things have changed since Obama took over as president. Because their individual life hasn’t changed all that much, they’re not aware of what is taking place. The Obama-zombies love and worship him to the point that anything he does is okay with them even though it violates the constitution. Except for a small percentage, the media will not hold him accountable for his actions because they’re in the tank for him.

Our Founding Fathers set up a government designed to prevent the United States from becoming a totalitarian dictatorship. Unfortunately that’s just what we’ve become. And, you know something? The American people have allowed it. And only the American people can put a stop to it. The question is, “Will we?”
