THE MORNING AFTER

I had better get busy with this article because even though it’s still the morning after, it’s getting close to being the “afternoon after.” I certainly didn’t expect Donald Trump to win the presidency. From all accounts and media outlets, including Fox News, Mr. Trump’s chances of winning were estimated to be slim to even none. He was drug through the mud like no political candidate had ever been. Some Democrats, including First Lady, Michelle Obama, were expressing utter shock at what he was overheard saying on the Access Hollywood tape, even though fowl-mouthed rapper Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé are included among those in the Obama inner circle.

In the short time I’ve been at my desk and perused social media, I have seen so much vitriol and hatred coming from Democrats directed at Donald Trump and his supporters. I’m also seeing some Democrats express disbelief that their gal, Hillary lost. “Oh, but she’s the smartest, most caring woman in the world.” Get real, she screws up everything she touches. Hey, Democrats, not everyone agrees with you. Here’s a list of things, not in any particular order.

  • Not everyone thinks government is all powerful, all loving, and always perfect. Some of us believe that the private sector does a lot of things much better than government and should be left to do so. That was one of the principles on which this country was founded, and many of us believe in this 240-year-old principle.
  • Not everyone thinks that it’s okay to kill the unborn just because carrying that child to term is inconvenient for the mother. Science has proven that upon conception that fertilized egg takes on human characteristics such as brain and heart activity.
  • Many of us respect the armed forces and feel that a strong military is necessary to the well-being of our nation and the safety of our citizens.
  • There are those of us who respect our nation’s local law enforcement. And while there are certainly “bad cops” out there, most our policemen and women are fine people who deserve our respect as they work from day to day to protect us from criminal activity and assist us when necessary.
  • We live in the last half of the second decade of the twenty-first century. Slavery ended in 1865 and additional civil rights legislation was pass over a half-century ago. While racism exists and continues to exist until Christ returns and sets up his 1000 year reign here on earth, most of us believe in and have worked to established equal opportunity, but realize that with equal opportunity, we cannot guarantee equal outcome.
  • Most of us believe that we have the right to exercise our freedom of speech, especially when it comes to holding our government officials accountable; and don’t like the way you have many hurled the “racist” accusation at those who have disagreed with the policies of the first black president, Barak Obama. You have also come up with the ridiculous notions that the American flag is racist, and that chanting “USA” is racist. It seems that whenever you can’t decide on what to call those with whom you disagree, you, with reckless abandon, just hurl the term racist. In fact, you make up the definition of racism to suit your needs of the moment. Again, many of us just don’t like that.
  • Many of us question the existence of man-made climate change, and there are many articles written by respected scientists who have refuted this theory. However, Democrats have consistently hurled insults and called those who didn’t agree with them unflattering names. Again, not everyone agrees with you on this issue and many of us were fearful of the ridiculous regulations that were being crammed down our throats in the name of climate change.
  • Many of us don’t agree with you in your efforts to soak the rich and screw over businesses. These are the entities who issue our paychecks. When our employers prosper, we, the middle class, tend to do better.
  • Most of us don’t want government-run healthcare. We warned if the dangers when the ACA was being crammed down our throats using every legislative trick in the book. Our nation’s healthcare system is a mess. Democrats this is your fault. You own it; lock, stock, and barrel. Now it looks like it will be up to the Republicans and the Trump administration to fix it. Thanks a lot, Dems!
  • Most of us want to win the war on Islamic terrorism and believe we need to define the problem in order to solve it. We believe that ISIS is the twenty-first century Third Reich and must be destroyed, and never allowed in this country.
  • Immigration: You Democrats have never acknowledged that there is a difference between legal and illegal immigration. When someone says they’re against illegal immigration, you make no distinction between legal and illegal and hurl the xenophobia accusation. We want illegal immigration diminished and feel that a wall on the Mexican border will go a long ways in solving this problem.
  • A lot of us would like to be able to defend ourselves from an attacker either before or after the police are called. We’d rather not have the police come, tag our dead bodies, and call the morgue to come and get us.
  • Most of us want to maintain Israel as a trusted ally. If fact, it’s necessary. God has indicated that he will punish those who turn their backs on Israel.

The above outlines many of the areas where the two major political parties disagree, and as I’ve been saying all along, liberals, Democrats, progressives, or whatever it is they want to call themselves these days can’t seem to believe that anyone could possibly have different view. And if they have different views, they’re stupid and evil. Furthermore, Democrats don’t appear to believe in free speech unless they agree with the speech.

I’ve been called a sore winner this morning, and that’s probably right. I want to lash out. I want to do the same things to Democrats that they did to me eight years ago and have continued to do to me and other conservatives since then. I’m a flawed individual, but grateful that those flaws have been paid for.

ENRAGED AT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

I just finished listening to the Barak Obama’s speech that he gave in Orlando yesterday. And never in my entire life have I been so enraged at the president of the United States. The speech was wrong, so wrong. It was abominable. Up until Barak Obama assumed the office of the President of the United States, I felt safe and secure from attacks from foreign enemies. Now I don’t. Even in my central Alabama/Birmingham area bedroom community of Pelham, I don’t feel safe.

The root cause of the Orlando mass shooting is Islamic Terrorism.  The shooting was carried out by an individual with ties to ISIS. One of the caveats of Islam is to put homosexuals to death. The shooting took place in a downtown Orlando nightclub whose patrons are primarily members of the LGBT community.

To stop the scourge of similar attacks on America soil, we must go after ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups and destroy them.

We must cut off the head of the snakes. But no, the current president and his liberal henchmen are suggesting that we, here in the United States, are responsible for this tragedy due to our gun control policies.

According to Rush Limbaugh (and I know you liberals hate him), after the Orlando shooting, Obama said, “ISIL is under more pressure than ever before. ISIL continues to lose ground in Iraq. All told, ISIL has now lost nearly half the populated territory it once controlled in Iraq, and will lose more.” The CIA director today says they’re bigger than ever, they’re stronger than ever, they’re stealthier than ever, and they’re getting into this country in greater numbers than ever.

In the speech, the current president spent about six minutes of the eighteen minute speech talking about how the victims were members of the LGBT community, and emphasized that the LGBT community had been subjected to much hatred from other Americans and that we needed to come together as Americans. And that maybe well and true. However, the alleged hatred of the LGBT community by church going, choir singing hypocrites, and they do exist, was not the cause of the Orlando shooting. The Orlando shooting was carried out by a person of Afghan descent who was connected to ISIS and the religion of Islam calls for the killing of gay individuals. That church going, choir singing hypocrite had nothing to do with the Orlando shooting.

And again, this president seems clueless as to the root cause of the Orlando shooting.

Or is he? I don’t think he’s clueless at all. He knows what he’s doing. He continues to lecture the American people to not judge all Muslims by the actions of a few. But yet, after the shooting in Charleston where the perpetrator was seen in a photo with a Confederate battle flag, anyone who owns any depiction of the Confederate battle flag, whether it is a large flag to display atop a flag pole or a mere belt buckle, is labeled a racist and a hater.

Barak Obama, you are an evil man. You’re not stupid. If you were merely stupid, there might be a chance that you could be convinced that the only way to stop incidents such as the Orlando shooting is to destroy Islamic terrorist groups on their home turf. If you were merely stupid, your political opponents might be convinced that you really cared. But you’re not stupid, you’re evil. You are anti-American, you’re an Islamic terrorist sympathizer. You’re goal in life is to destroy the United States of America and with each passing day, you’re getting closer to your goal.

I’m enraged at the president, and any patriotic American citizen should be also.

PREVENTING THE ORLANDO MASS SHOOTING

Now that the dust is beginning to settle, various folks, political and non-political, have been weighing in on how the Orlando mass shooting could have been prevented or diminished.

The shooting took place in an establishment that served alcohol, a drug that alters personality, the nervous system, and inhibitions. Individuals under the influence often do things they would not do if they were sober. If I owned an establishment that served alcohol, guns would be there. I’d probably have one in an office drawer and at least one behind the bar. On certain busy nights, I would perhaps have plain clothes detectives or other security officers stationed in various areas of the club, carrying concealed guns.

Pulse Night Club is located in the downtown Orlando area and primarily caters to the gay population. It was advertised as a gun free zone in order that patrons could meet up for fun, fellowship, unity, and, or course, libation.

First of all, if you think a gun free zone is safe, think again. I’m not about to set foot in a gun free zone. While I can’t guarantee that everywhere I go will be safe,  a gun free zone is definitely not.

If I owned or managed an establishment similar to Pulse where alcohol was served, and the patrons were not always accepted in certain sectors of society, guns would be present in order to prevent trouble. And  June being gay pride month is just another good reason to have plenty of security on board. I said if I owned or managed an establishment similar to the Pulse, heck if I owned any type of brick and mortar establishment, even an infant’s and children’s store in Mountain Brook, Alabama,  there would be a gun on the premises for safety.

In a previous article and on social media, I indicated that I felt the president of the United States had blood on his hands, as well as those of his administration. This administration wasted time going after and attempting to destroy people who feel  that marriage should be between one man and one woman, including people/businesses who do not want to provide goods and services in connection with gay marriage, but refused to go after Islamic Terrorism, a clear and existing threat to the LGBT community.

Liberals are blaming guns, hate, and the promotion of hate, with one of my liberal stalkers (I do have online stalkers), suggesting to me that I become a part of the solution and not part of the problem. Was he suggesting that I, a conservative commentator exercising my first amendment rights, am a promotor of hate? Probably so, since liberals (aka “tolerant left”) define hate as anything that they don’t agree with and a hater as anyone who doesn’t tow the liberal line. Was he partially blaming me for the Orlando mass shooting when the Religion of Islam calls for homosexuality to be punished by death and Saturday night’s killer was a Muslim and possible connections to ISIS?  Far out!

The canned liberal response is to emotionally lament over hatred of which they always to accuse those who don’t agree with them, and to call for stricter gun control while demonizing gun owners. I haven’t heard any of them blame the NRA and Fox News, yet; but I’m sure it’s coming.

The current administration has done everything it can to promote and protect the LGBT culture from bathing the White House in rainbow colors after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing gay marriage in all states, to declaring June as Pride Month and making no holds barred attempts to destroy anyone who does not honor gay marriage.

Whether you agree with these measure or not, the truth is that government cannot possibly protect you from harm every minute of your life. You have to take measures to protect yourself and make good decisions. And this is no guarantee you’ll always be safe, and I’m not suggesting you stay home behind locked doors, in bed, with the covers pulled over your head.  Just realize that big government who claims to be able to provide for your every need, can’t. Not even the bloated over-reaching government created by Barak Obama and his liberal henchmen.

Going to a night club in a downtown metropolitan area that promotes itself as a gun-free zone with fellowship, love, and unity for all on a Saturday night? Good decision or not? I can’t say. But I do wish that folks would realize that the government is not a panacea. Individuals must assume responsibility for their own safety. You can’t transfer it to the government or anyone else.

SOTU ACCORDING TO WING NUT GAL

By now we’ve heard a plethora of summaries and opinions about Monday’s State of the Union address by the current President of the United States. And here’s another one. While most of the following may be a re-hash of what you’ve already heard, I do have a few insights that are my own, or either I haven’t heard anyone else say these things.

As normal for any Democrat administration, increasing entitlements and government hand-outs is always proposed, with a tax increase for the rich in order to pay for these new “freebies.” New entitlements proposed in the speech include the following:

• First two years of community college tuition for free if the student meets certain      requirements.
• A $3,000 child care tax credit.
• Seven days of sick leave for all American workers.

While these proposals may sound good, bottom line, they are simply mechanisms by which to grow the government and increase the number of people feeding at the government trough. While I’m certainly a believer in safety nets, we just can’t keep giving stuff away. Somebody’s got to pay for it and that somebody is always “the rich.” Your typical liberal will always say, go after the wealthy, they can afford it. And the wealthy can, but can the middle class afford it? It’s ultimately going to be the middle class that gets hurt. When Mr. Rich Man or Ms. Rich Woman finds themselves having to pay more in taxes, that money is going to the government rather than into the private sector, particularly to small businesses. We’d be much better off with that money going into the private sector, growing the economy. When the private sector prospers, more money generally goes to the government, thereby increasing revenue. This is one of those issues that takes two brain cells to understand and liberals either don’t understand it or don’t want to understand it. I could discuss each of the three bulleted points in depth, but that will be left for another blog post.

The current president also touted the U.S. economy, indicating that its growing and creating jobs at the fastest rate since 1999. Yes, there is some optimism out there due to falling gas prices. More Americans have a little extra money in their pockets. However, when you dig deeper, you find a very sluggish economy. In 2009, there were 33 million people on food stamps, now; 46.5 million people are receiving food stamps. The number of people on some sort of government welfare program has doubled since the current president has taken office. Yes, the employment rate is down, but that doesn’t account for the millions of people who have dropped out of the work force entirely. Right now, there are approximately 92 million people not working.

Of course, the current president is going to boast about healthcare, stating that there are so many more Americans insured today than there were a year ago. However, insurance premiums have increased for most of us and the healthcare we’re getting is not as good as most of us had. When the extra money in the pockets of the middle class due to falling gas prices disappears due to the increase in health insurance premiums, how optimistic are folks going to be? Also, average income has dropped steadily since 2009.

The economy is still in dire straits and can only improve with a strong private sector, something this president and the liberals are fighting and will continue fighting tooth and nail.

Now for my favorite, falling energy prices. In his speech, the president took credit for falling gas prices. Once again, the falling gas prices are due to increased exploration on state and private lands and a little innovation called hydraulic fracturing or more commonly known as fracking. And you know something; liberals are against fracking and increased oil exploration. They hate it and want to further regulate it. In fact, the current administration is planning on implementing additional regulations for oil exploration on state and federal lands. Now what’s this going to result in? If you said gasoline prices increasing, you’re right. I suspect, though, that these regulations will be timed so that the effects will be felt sometime around the 2016 presidential election. If a Republican wins the Whitehouse, he or she and the rest of the Republicans will be blamed for increases in the price of gas. If a Democrat wins the Whitehouse, it will be business as usual. Democrats don’t care about anything except controlling as many aspects of our lives as possible. They’ll somehow blame everything on the Republicans with the mainstream media getting on board with them. Like I’ve said before, facts don’t matter to Democrats.

With respect to foreign policy, remember Baghdad Bob? He was the Iraqi official that kept telling his people that Iraq was winning the war with the allied forces, including the United States, while we were continually bombing them. He became somewhat of a comical character. While this president was discussing foreign policy in his State of the Union address, I couldn’t help think about Baghdad Bob. The world is a dangerous place. ISIS or ISIL is getting stronger and continues to conquer, torture, and kill anyone they don’t like. In fact, ISIL controls more territory in Syria than it did when U.S. airstrikes began six months ago. The threat that there will be another attack on U.S. soil is increasing every day. Four months ago, this president announced that the Arab country of Yemen was stable and served as a model for Middle Eastern states. However, the day of the State of the Union address, Shiite Houthi rebels overtook the presidential palace in Yemen’s capital city of Sanaa, making what a government minister called, “the completion of a coup,” according to CNN.com.

Of course, we all know that the president did not mention the words, Al Qaeda, in his speech and refuses to use the phrase, “Islamic Terrorism.” The primary responsibility of the President of the United States is to keep this country and its people safe from our enemies around the globe. But this president doesn’t seem engaged at all in foreign policy. When the Paris terrorist attacks took place, this president was off touting his great economic policies and didn’t see the need to attend the “we stand with the French” rally that was attended by numerous heads of state from all over the planet, including our allies. Again, this president is not engaged in foreign policy and seems to dismiss the fact that the world is a dangerous place due to the aggressiveness of Islamic terrorism.

And if the above weren’t enough, the current administration is talking with Iran about Iran’s nuclear program in spite of a number of high level democrats who are against negotiations with Iran. Congressional leaders in both chambers are considering a proposal to increase sanctions while international negotiators try to reach an agreement. The president has indicated that he will veto any bill that comes to his desk to increase sanctions on Iran because he feels that such sanctions, which would go into effect June 30, if agreements are not reached, would derail any talks about Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

The most ridiculous statement made by the current president in the State of the Union is that climate change is the biggest threat to our future. I almost choked on that one. The president went on to state that records show 2014 was the warmest year on record. Fourteen of the fifteen warmest years on record have fallen during the first fifteen years of this century. According to James Delingpole, author of The Little Green Book of Eco-Facism, if you were to take the year 1850 as a starting point, we have experienced about 0.8 degrees Celsius of “global warming.” But if you used a 1,000 year time scale, you’d find that the world’s temperatures had been gently cooling since their high point in the Medieval Warming Period. So, Mr. Delingpole opines that global warming may be happening or it may not be happening. Either way, it doesn’t matter because nothing that climate has been doing in our lifetime is in any way more dramatic than anything it has been doing in the last 10,000 or so years. This says to me that climate change is not really significant and certainly not caused by industrial nations such as the United States.

While I could certainly write a lot more, I’m not because this post may be a little too long to keep your attention. It would be my hope that the above is one of the better analyses of the 2015 State of the Union address, one that you can refer to for reference.
