Easy When You’re Rich

Bill Gates recently made the comment that nobody needs to be as rich as he is… I’m sure that it’s real easy to criticize and make such comments when you don’t have a clue what being poor or in the middle class is like. He plans on giving the bulk of his fortune to his foundation, which fights poverty and diseases in third world countries all over the planet. Of course that means that the kids are only going to get an amount that falls under the inheritance tax limits… poor souls are going to have to figure out how to live with a measly 9 or 10 million dollars. Gates also believes that he isn’t paying enough in taxes,…

Will 2020 Be The Year We Embrace Socialism

The 2020 presidential race is shaping up to possibly be a pivotal year in our countries history… It may well be the year that the left seizes control of our government and every aspect of our lives with a strict socialist agenda. It seems that all of those who are throwing their hats into the ring to become the next Democrat nominee feel the path to victory is to promise a total nanny state to those too ignorant to understand that it will not work here just as it has failed everyplace else on the planet. We’re already seeing how embolden the extreme liberal arm of the Democrat party has become with the introduction of the New Green Deal legislation…

Michael Moore and The Pope

Michael Moore says he met with the Pope and the Pope told him that capitalism is a sin… Talk about a hypocrite… The Pope sits on his golden throne surrounded by a massive fortune and he thinks having a divide between the rich and the poor is a sin. The Catholic Church is no better than most charities on the planet, they take in huge sums of money and then use the majority of it to make a few individuals wealthy and super comfortable and when they throw pennies on the dollar at whatever cause they support they start patting themselves on the back for a job well done. The Pope also told Moore to keep making movies… Somehow I…

Who Is Andrew Gillum?

Who is Andrew Gillum and how has he gotten to the point he is in now? We all have heard the basics… born into a working poor family. He was the first in his family to graduate from collage. Speaking of college, he majored in political science and got himself elected to the Tallahassee City Council at the age of 23 before he even finished his college education. He’s never really worked for a living and all of his mentors have been liberal college professors and career politicians who, in my opinion, have indoctrinated him to believe that the government is the answer to all social and economic woes. I believe that Andrew Gillum vaulted to the top spot of…

Mob Invasion

The following is an excerpt from a USA Today story published today about a new mob of migrants gathering at the Guatemala border with eyes at invading the Southern boarder of the U.S.   “In the same plaza, migrants sprawled shoulder to shoulder on the cement floor, sleeping, smoking cigarettes given to them by passersby, or waiting for their cellphones to charge. Some of the young men called out, asking for money from anyone who walked past. “We are hungry. Can you please lend a hand?” they said.”   Did you catch that? Some of them are begging for help just to eat and yet they apparently own cell phones. What a joke… the more I hear about these migrant…

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.

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…
