Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Special Election

Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in the special election to fill the seat vacated when Tom Price took a position on President Trump’s Cabinet. The way the campaign was financed really disturbs me because every one in the media seems to think its okay for funds to pour into any political race uninhibited from outside sources. In this case the Democrat outspent the Republican by a heavy margin and they still lost, which I hope gnaws at the democrat party for long time. I thought since campaign finance seems to be the topic of the day that this would be as good a time as any to restate my idea for campaign finance reform… something the politicians have…

Paris Accord

President Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord and the liberal Trump haters are loosing their minds. They want us to believe that it’s all about the environment. If they were listening to the President speak yesterday when he made the announcement that he was pulling us out of the agreement then they choose to ignore every thing he said. President Trump’s decision isn’t because he doesn’t care about the environment, which he reiterated several times during his announcement; it was made because he’s putting a stop to the rest of the world using us for a door mat. The agreement is hugely lopsided against the United States both in regulations and monetary concerns. If…

Mark Zuckerberg Preaching Utopia

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, during his Harvard Commencement Speech said; “Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract. We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” Personally I think it’s dangerous to be filling our graduate’s minds with the idea that the government should just give everyone a basic living wage… especially when there is nothing expected of them in return. We’re raising a generation of lazy uninspired idealistic morons who think…

Bethune-Cookman University Commencement

Betsy DeVoss, the new Education Secretary under President Donald Trump was invited to speak at the graduation ceremony at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach. In case you don’t know Bethuce-Cookman is one of the leading primarily black collages in the southeast. As might be expected the student body along with several of this countries top race baiting organizations went berserk over the invitation and the protests only intensified as the press escalated their coverage. I believe the real problem runs far deeper than the liberal objections to Secretary DeVoss’ policy beliefs. I truly believe that most of the student’s objection was to a white person giving their commencement address. After all they are attending a race based university… where the stereo…

Total Eclipse Forever Stamp

The US Postal Service is outdoing even it own capacity to waste money by coming out with a stamp that has a picture that changes when heat is applied to it. These unique postage stamps have a picture of a total solar eclipse on them that changes to show the detail of the moon’s surface when you apply the heat from a finger or thumb. High tech and all so slick, however I’d like to know how much money the postal service spent developing and perfecting this printing technique and how much more each stamp is costing the post office to produce… because they sure aren’t selling them for more than the normal stamp. Why should any of this concern…

Trump’s Tax Plan

President Trump unveiled the details of his tax reform legislation and I liked almost everything that was said. Now as long as we don’t get a few brain dead legislators on our side of the isle we might actually see some real progress in getting our stagnate economy moving in the right direction again. The one thing that I heard said today which bugs the crap out of me is when they mention that back prior to the Regan tax cuts the top personal tax rate was 90% without following that up with some form of statement that the 90% was on a much lower taxable income figure due to the almost endless itemized deductions that were allowed at the…

Nuclear Blast Simulation Over Manhatten

Several agencies from federal, state and city emergency services will come together this Monday April 24, 2017 to participate in a 3 day mock drill that will simulate a nuclear blast over the island of Manhattan. It’s being called Operation Gotham Shield. So just how do you simulate the devastation and loss of life that would result in a nuclear bomb being detonated over one of our nations most populated cities? Do you get everyone inside a two mile radius of ground zero to lie down and play dead because that is what would happen. There would be no emergency response anywhere near ground zero because the emergency responders would also be dead. The devastation would stretch out for up to a hundred…

Free College

Starting this fall New York State is going to become the first state in the nation to make college tuition free at all state colleges to everyone of its high school graduates whose household income is below $100,000 a year, which over the next few years rises to $125,000. I’m going to be interested in seeing how the residents of New York are going to like the hike in taxes they are going to have to pay in order for the state to afford to run the state colleges at the same level of excellence they operate at now. Of course we all know that once the state is pulling all the purse strings that wages are going to become…

CNN Fact Finding Efforts Pay Off

Yesterday White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made a comment while sparing with the press over the Russian connection to Trump and the election results… something that has been over investigated for months now with no concrete evidence coming forth to prove anything the press is alleging. Spicer, out of frustration with the press jokingly said, “If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russia connection,” Today we find out the truth… the investigative arm of CNN worked overtime to fact check the statement and have found out that Russian Salad Dressing isn’t really a salad dressing and was created in New Hampshire and has no connection to Russia or Vladimir Putin. We should all feel very…

Lindsey Graham, Republican or DNC Operative?

Yesterday Senator Lindsey Graham was being interviewed on the Today Show. Matt Lauer and Savanna Gunthrie started off grilling him about this Russian connection to the Trump campaign story that they refuse to let go of and the Obama wire tapping claim that Trump made in a tweet. They managed to move the interview onto the Republican HealthCare bill where Graham, a Republican, seemed all too willing to bash the crap out of. I’m not sure what side Lindsey Graham is working for… of course there are times when I think Trump is working for the DNC with this habit he has of feeding the liberal base stories that have no basis in fact and that keep us all distracted…
