Supreme Court Nomination Debacle

Yesterday the Senate Sub Committee did its due diligence and allowed Dr. Christine Ford to testify during the nomination process. They heard a compelling story about a young girl being traumatized by an older boy at a house party where underage drinking was taking place. The real question that we should be asking ourselves today is did her testimony provide any concrete prof that the person she remembers assaulting her was without any doubt a young Brett Kavanagh. No matter which side you believe we do have to remember that all of this happened decades ago and we all have things in our past that we may not particularly be proud of, but most often use them to learn to…

Desperation Mounting

It’s unreal the lengths the left will go to in an attempt to unseat President Trump. The current attack is based on an opinion piece that was published in the New York Times and is being reported as fact by every left leaning news media outlet. This should open the eyes of those who believe in the job our elected president is doing and convince them that there are powers to be in this country that are desperate to get Trump out of office. I pray that all this talk by the media of a shift of power in the US House and Senate on election day 2018 is just that… all wishful thinking on their part like it was…

Election Interference

There is a force in place to influence our election process and it isn’t the Russians… it comes from the left who have begun a comprehensive effort to squash conservatives and conservative view points on social media as fake news.  Under their definition of fake news anything conservative is and anything promoting the left leaning Democrats is not. Our democracy is under attack from within and if allowed to progress we’ll end up with Bernie Sanders in the White House and an economy that makes Venezuela look like boom town.

Arena Football

For 25 years I was a huge Arena Football, Orlando Predator fan… then in 2016 the ownership of the team decided to just call it quits. Since then I’ve only had a passing interest in what is happening with the league. 2017 they only fielded four teams, two brand new teams (both owned by the same person) and two teams that were still hanging on. They played a 12 game schedule, but knowing that all four teams would make the playoffs because you need at least an even number of teams to create a competition bracket. Turns out that the two older mature teams dominated and battled it out in the championship game as was expected. 2018 saw one of…

Florida Democrats for Governor

Some bids for political office have merit… other do not. A couple of the Democrats running for the right to be on the November ballot as a candidate for the Florida Governor race come to mind as severely unqualified; The first is Gwen Graham… I guess if your father was once a State Senator and Florida governor that you must automatically have what it takes to be governor. She does have a two year stint as a US House Representative, but decided not to run for reelection when the district she was a shoe in for the 2014 election was redrawn and was going to be a challenge to win in 2016. She was a housewife and mother for 13…

Dirty Political Season

You expect the liberals to use the 23% consumption tax associated with the Fair Tax Plan, HR 25, as a talking point to smear a conservative opponent; However this particular ignorant tactic is now being used by one conservative Republican to smear another conservative Republican in the Florida Governor Primary. One of the Political Action Committees supporting Adam Putman is running ads accusing Ron Desantis of voting to add 23% to the price of everything by cosponsoring House Bill 25, H.R. 25 or The Fair Tax Plan. This is why I have a problem with PAC ads that only give you a small piece of information and use it to make the opposition look bad. It is true that the…

News Media So Bias Against Trump

The main street media is having a field day at the conclusion of President Trump’s face to face meeting with Russian President Putin. It’s nauseating to watch them drool all over each other with talk about treason and resignation because they didn’t like what or how President Trump said in the post conference news briefing by the two leaders. So what if he basically said he trusts the word of Putin equally as much as he does our intelligence agencies. In my opinion I think Trump believes they are both slinging bull shit and lying most of the time. Why have we spent the majority of the last two years investigating Russian interference with our election process, but so far…

President Trump, Great Leader Despite

The left just can’t stand the fact that President Trump is doing what a good leader does… lead. The Russian deal is unraveling, Hillary’s email scandal isn’t going away like they want and despite the Justice Department issuing a report that there was no political bias that drove the FBI’s actions it’s painfully obvious that a political bias was running unabated at the highest level of the FBI. The big issue this week is the separation of children brought across the US border by their parents illegally. If you listen to the main street media you’d think Trump was this cruel cold-hearted hate monger, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. The laws that the Trump administration are now enforcing…

Solution to Stop School Shootings

The Millcreek Township School District located outside Erie, PA has solved the school shooter problem by arming every teacher with a 16” souvenir baseball bat. That’s right some moron convinced the rest of the school board that the best way to keep someone from coming into a school with a gun is to put the fear of God in them that they are going to encounter a teacher wielding a tiny baseball bat. They spent $1,800 to purchase 500 of the bats so that every classroom has one available in the event the students need protection from a gun toting nut case. There is no shortage of idiots who think this is the way to go. Keep the sign up…

Privacy Rights

Facebook is in the hot seat on Capital Hill this week as congress takes its shot at the head of the beast Mark Zuckerberg over individual privacy rights. From what I’ve seen of the Senate committee hearing it was a joke. The big issue is the transfer of personal data of Facebook’s 87 million users to Cambridge Analytica. Most of the time the media refers to it as a hack or they say the data was stolen, which I feel is so far from the truth. Cambridge Analytica didn’t steal that data they bought it from Facebook. That’s right, surprise surprise Facebook is in the business of selling the personal data that it’s users freely give up when they accept…
