45st President, Donald Trump

Today we inaugurate the newest President of the United States, Donald Trump.

His victory was stunning in the elections in November 2016.  He did what no one thought he had a chance of doing.

Winning

Now, as I look on to the next four years under Trump, I hope he does a good job.  The same thing I hoped with every President.  There are still a host of issues to be addressed, from social to economic to foreign policies.

I can only hope that Trump surrounds himself with people who are smart, and he listens to what they have to say.

I do fear the left-wing will only attack him no matter what he does.  They seem to want him to fail only to say I told you so while running to their safe-spaces.

Either way, today is still historic as it marks what should be, a peaceful transition of power from one person to the next as happened many times in our past.

Good Luck Mr. President, Donald Trump.

 

MLK Day

It seems like there is so much about racism in today’s world.  Everyone on the left is triggered by something, or some action its to the point of ridiculousness.

However, I have come to ask a question of such actions by the left.  What is the end game?

In other words, at what point do they consider ‘racism’ of their definition to be over?

For me, two segments of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech come to mind:

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

and,

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

The endgame for racism is here.  A world where we no longer see color.  Where we look at the skin of a person as we would hair color, or eye color, or the height of a person.  It makes up who they are, but doesn’t define who that person is anymore than how tall a person is.

You look at someone and see them for who they are, not for the color of their skin.

However, I feel as if the left wants me to see a person for the color of their skin.  And I don’t see the end game upon which racism is conquered.  I only see a world where racism continues under their efforts to ‘end’ racism.

 

Airport Shooting

Over the weekend there was a shooting  the Ft. Lauderdale airport.  Tragically five people lost their lives.

Of course the debate will rage on gun control, because that’s what the left does in a situation like this, blame guns.

But I want to know more.  Like why did he do this?  What was the purpose of the shooting.  At this time there are no clear answers and a lot of speculation going on.

I am also curious as to what we can do to prevent such a thing from happening again, while still maintaining our 2nd Amendment rights.  Aside from eliminating all guns I have a hard time eliminating the risk no matter what gun laws are put forth by the left.

Watching that day the biggest concern was how long the airport was shut down.  One person caused all of this disruption.  Imagine if the attack had been organized over several airports?  Mass chaos in our travel.

They shut down the entire airport, despite probably knowing it was a lone gunman, they kept all terminals closed.  Of course such things are lost on the left as they have an agenda, gun control, and for that they will ignore anything and everything.

 

Health Care

Listening to the news there is a lot of talk about Obamacare and such.  The left-wingers have come out and stated that if Republicans get their way everyone will get ‘sicker’ than they already are.

The left-wing once more is showing how out of touch they are with reality.

Obamacare has not been the ‘success’ they had hoped, and they know it.  They’ve know it for a while now.  They knew it when it was rushed through Congress and the President signed the bill with a lot of fanfare.  The left ignored concerns by others saying it was fearmongering.

Personally I feel there is not problem with our healthcare.  I can hear the left-wingers starting their arguments already but they didn’t understand what I wrote.  I said no problem with our healthcare.

The USA has a great healthcare system.  We have great doctors, hospitals and other agencies.  I learned that first-hand in 2015 when I had major health issues.  The real problem comes from other areas, like prices for procedures.

Consider this, any bill I had in 2015 that went to insurance who paid was ‘re-priced’.  However, for a surgery which ended up being almost an emergency, in a hospital which was considered ‘in-network’, by a doctor considered ‘in-network’, the assistant to the surgery was considered ‘out-of-network’.  Which meant that I was responsible for almost all of it and was never ‘re-priced’.

My brother, on an Obamacare plan, figured out if the same thing happened to him his closest hospital would not have covered him.

Think about that?

Insurance companies and government rules and regulations are a bigger problem with our healthcare than anything else.

And yet, the left-wingers want to include more.

I fear if the left-wingers get their way, no one will be able to afford healthcare.  After all, the only thing they want is universal healthcare insurance provided by the government for everyone.

So come on Republicans, lets actually look at the system and see if we can find a real fix.

 

Left-Wingers

The left constantly says they are liberals.  They fight for freedoms and such.  But they are not.

The reality is Political Correctness and Multiculturism, two staples of the left, are not liberal at all.  They restrict freedom of speech and the flow of debate and ideas.

Multiculturism according to the left is all about understanding other cultures.  The problem here is it doesn’t bring groups together.  It instead has shown to keep groups more and more divided.  They don’t come together and become share ideas and in a way become one.

That would be a Melting Pot which the left has long since decided is bad.  After all, how dare one culture be absorbed into another.  Nope its far better to have a bunch of different cultures.  What better to divide and conquer with?

And what about the other favorite of the left, good old PC.

Its even worse.  Its the most harmful of all intolerances due to the fact its wrapped up to appear as tolerance.

Let’s face it, PC is about controlling what people say, think and do according to a strict codes and rigid rules for all to live by.  Its also this physiology which has made way for the rise of triggering by special snowflakes.

But come back to the word liberals.  These left-wingers say they are liberal?  What is a liberal?

According to a definition a liberal is “open to new behavior or opinions”.

Multiculturism and PC are anything but liberal.  In fact, they appear to not be open to new behaviors or opinions.

To this, as of today, I will stop using liberal as a term to describe left-wingers.  I’ll look for other, more fitting terms, but for now I’ll go with left-wingers.  Because they are not liberals.

 

2017

Well, its the beginning of a new year, and in a few weeks the beginning of a new administration.  One upon which almost no one foresaw.

Now eight years ago a man named Barrack Obama had won the election and would become the new President.  Everyone on the left was full of hope (and change).

Personally I was hopeful, but cautious about his agenda.  I didn’t feel his agenda was right for how the USA was headed, and what was going on.  I don’t know if my opinions were right or wrong as it generally takes a decade or more to even begin to understand what happened under a Presidency.

Today we have Donald Trump about to take the oath and liberals all over at still whining about the election.  They are still calling Trump supporters racist, and deplorable, and more.  They have attacked Trump and he hasn’t even taken the oath yet.

I have no problem with people actually criticizing Trump, they have that right.  But what I see in the beginning of the year isn’t criticism, its personal attacks.  Calling someone racist for supporting Trump doesn’t heal the country.  Calling someone sexist for supporting Trump doesn’t heal the country.

If 2017 is to be the year we heal, the left is doing everything they can to make sure the healing doesn’t occur.

 

Merry Christmas

In a non-PC way I’m going to wish you a Merry Christmas.

And the Christmas story, from Luke 2:1-20New International Version (NIV):

The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

 

Trump Is President

Despite the fiasco of the past couple of weeks since the election win by Trump, the elector college has cast heir votes.

The winner: Donald Trump.

I would say now is the time for liberals to grow up, move on, and possibly work with Trump.  But I fear all we’ll get is more of the same whining by the left.

Sure, they’ll claim the conservatives did it, but I somehow doubt that a liberal will be called racist for simply disagreeing with something Trump wants to do.

They state conservatives called Obama Hitler, yet liberals did it to Bush, and have already done it to Trump.  Like racism its a catch all insult which now means almost nothing.

I’ll wait and see what type of President Trump will be, much like I waited to see how Obama was going to be.  However it really feels like all people want to do in today’s society is fearmonger and preach that the worst is here.

The one thing I don’t expect is to have Trump win a Noble Peace Prize for doing nothing.

 

Answering a Question

It appears a few nights ago on Carlson Tucker, Kurt Eichenwald was on the show.  One of the questions on the show was about Eichenwald stating Trump was “institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990”.

A simple question considering Carlson asked Eichenwald if this was true or not.  If Trump was this should have been a very easy question to answer.  Instead Eichenwald almost became unhinged in his replies.

It became an embarrassing round about as Eichenwald brushed aside the question and instead tried to attack the host of the show. Continue reading…

 

Fake News

Lately there has been a lot of talk about fake news and somehow controlling it, especially by the liberals.  I guess they are still reeling from the election loss and blaming it on the fake news.

But there is a problem with coming down on fake new.  Who determines what is, or is not, fake?

I get the feeling that liberals don’t really care about fake news, but controlling the news people hear.  Or more specifically, making sure people hear only the liberal agenda without anyone questioning it. Continue reading…

 

Climate Change

So, we just had a major winter storm and of course.  What does all the conversation turn to.

How much snow?  Nope.

How cold it is?  Nope.

Climate Change?  Yep.

Now, I’m not going to say the climate will always remain the same, that’s for idiots.  I’m not even going to go into the debate on it.

I simple have one observation to hand out.

Why is it whenever we have a strong winter storm blow though the US the topic of conversation turns to Climate Change?

Currently my priorities for CC is actually quite low at the moment.  I want to know how cold it will be.  Will it get below freezing where I am?  Do I need to take some extra precautions and such?

What I don’t want at that time is a crap load of articles about CC that I won’t read because I’m busy looking for other information.

Come on weather folks.
