Let’s forget about any particular political wrangling’s going on in D.C. and think about this one thought: Every place, every election since November, everywhere that the Left (progressives) have lost seats or positions, the first thing they do is cry foul. The stupid, brainless people that follow them like sheep are not better.
Now, a watchdog group as well as 6 voters are calling for the Georgia special election to be invalidated because the Russians might have meddled with the voting machines. Really people? What is this fixation with the Russians. And when will you Democrats and Progressives quit acting like a bunch of little children, throwing a tissy fit when you don’t get your way.
I am so sick of all politicians, especially Democrats, but I think I am more sick of the stupid people that follow them like lemmings. Brainless zombies. When will the zombies realize that Democrats/Liberals only like you when you vote for them? Once in office, you are nothing more than offal to them.
I have do doubt that there are people that agree with those that want Republican electors to vote other than what their states want. The people that think this way love to cite Federalist Paper # 68. The Federalist Papers were essays, not law, ESSAYS.
What these same people fail miserably at is understanding that we are not governed by the Federalist Papers. We are governed by the Constitution. Here is stated the requirement for a person to be the President of the United States:
US Constitution, Article II, Section 1 
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
For those of you that want to argue FP #68 as being a requirement, please do 2 things:
1. Show me where in the Constitution it is stated that the office of the President must be occupied by a person “…in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”
2. Define and qualify “requisite qualifications”? Cite your answer.
I must say that my week is starting off admirably. The Socialist MSM, prior to the RNC, had all kinds of dire predictions about the Republican Convention. Riots in the streets, blood flowing, total disarray of the convention itself. Well, sad for them, none of that happened. But…they did promise a well organized and oiled DNC. Free of chaos. Free of disorganization. Seems that is not to be.
My week is starting off very well, thank you. See the link below from Keith Koffler.
This article is from three years ago but is even more pertinent today. Read carefully. Twice if needed, to fully understand what our choices are this election.
I will not write much on this post because the author of the link below, Mark W. Hendrickson, distinguishes between the two ways of thinking very well. If you have the ability, and willingness, to think for yourself, you will see the logic.
It is becoming a common statement this electoral period for people to state that they will not vote for the lesser of the two evils, since evil in any form is evil. Strange statement to make because as many of us know, we are presented daily with choices that don’t necessarily fall into the neat category’s of ‘good’ and ‘evil’. What do we do when we are presented with choices that either will leave a bitter taste in our mouth? We generally go with the less bitter.
That is what may be needed for the fence sitters to consider. Not voting is simply wrong. If both choices are evil, then to not vote says you except either, evil as they may be to you. We know that one choice will keep us on the same financial, moral, ethical track we are on. The other choice we ‘think’ we know how it will turn out, but who’s to say it might not be better?
For those that have no moral backbone, the choice is clear. For those that at least think they have a moral backbone, then choose!! Don’t dilly-dally about this election. You don’t want to meet me and tell me you didn’t vote and then start complaining about the policies being put on us. I will tell you to please be silent since you had no voice in the results of the election, then I will walk away and ignore you.
From an article by Lloyd Marcus in the American Thinker is the following corollary:
“Two evil masters seek to purchase the same slave. The slave’s owner offers him the privilege to choose between the two evil new masters seeking to purchase him. One master is a tyrant. The other is a tyrant and a rapist, sure to rape the slave’s wife and daughter. Doesn’t the slave have a moral obligation to his wife and daughter to choose the less evil master?”
So, what’s your decision?

I Know Best: How Moral Narcissism Is Destroying Our Republic, If It Hasn’t Already, by Roger L. Simon, New York: Encounter Books, June 14, 2016
In the above book, Simon states the following:
“Moral narcissism … is a way of explaining away evil, blaming all ills on social causes and therefore pushing back the necessity of examining the human soul or one’s own, of not seeing the possible darkness within[.] … [M]oral narcissism obscures reality and therefore threatens democracy. That not everything is perfectible, that there is evil in the world, and that evil is likely to remain forever.”
Consider this when thinking about our present political arena. Can you think of any one person, that is presently in office, that portrays this kind of attitude? Is this the type of person, or people, you want to lead this country?
Simply consider the above, very seriously, and go from there.
Oh boy, here we go again with the scare tactic of global warming to put extreme restrictions on coal fired plants and threaten the Keystone pipeline. What’s worse is that this administration, as well as congress (notice the lower case), don’t care what the public thinks is important (check the Pew Research priority numbers), they are just going to go ahead with whatever makes them happy and keeps us cowering in fear.
Global Warming? Hmm…explain how even with a 33% increase in global CO2 emissions between 2001 and 2010 (no increase in the US during that time) that the surface temp during the above time period has only increased .2 to .3 C. The global warming dog just don’t hunt folks. If was a true global warming emergency, common sense alone, not counting the facts in front of your eyes, would dictate extreme increases in temperatures.
All of this should indicate to anyone capable of carrying a single thought through to its logical conclusion that those in Washington D.C., from the White House on down, have absolutely no desire to take care of business as needed. They want to drastically and permanently change the nature of this country in their own image and in the process continue to scare those without thinking abilities that the world is coming to and end through global warming, thereby keeping themselves in power.
Wake up America!!!!!
A Louisiana Senator (see link below) has finally come up with the main reason people are opposed to Obamacare. According to her it’s all about race. When are people going to get it that the dislike of Obamacare, from Unions on down, is that 1) we were not told the truth about the actual bottom line cost, 2) actually keeping your present insurance is going to be problematic at best and, 3) the majority of us don’t want government run health care. Just look at what the ACA did as far as diagnostic codes, from 18,000 to 140,000:
Seems to me that those that want to use the race card have no ability to think a process through to its end. Every liberal that cow-tows to this President brings in the race card anytime anybody (Conservatives) opposes anything he does. This usually means the Conservative is winning the argument and the Liberal has no more ground to stand on.
As stated in the link below, and has been stated many times, this idea of government health care has been around awhile and a different, and same, versions has been proposed in the past by Republicans and Libertarians. Would Senator Peterson have been so quick to support it if a white politician proposed it? It’s doubtful. She mentions that discussion on Obamacare should be about subject matter. Well, duh, what do you think most intelligent people have been doing? This is just another example of how liberals speak out of both sides of their mouths and are truly double-minded. See the link below to hear Sen. Peterson’s own words.
“Desperation is like stealing from the Mafia: you stand a good chance of attracting the wrong attention.” (Douglas Horton).
Does the result indicated above seem to ring a familiar bell with anyone? In Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” Queen Gertrude makes the statement ‘The lady doth protest to much, me thinks’. We, today, paraphrase this statement in many ways and though our attributed meaning today is not the actual meaning meant in the play, our modern definition seems to fit quite well the situation the Democrats now find themselves facing.
We are told by the administrations minions, as well as the MSM (Main stream media), that all of this is much ado about nothing. If that is the case, then why do we see so many officials in the administration obfuscating and stonewalling and doing everything in their power to avoid straight answers?
Frank Camp, in his article titled “Democrats Grow Increasingly Desperate During Scandalpalooza”, makes a very good point about human nature and desperation.
” There is a certain sixth sense that allows people to detect what someone is really up to when they act in a desperate manner. This sense is innate in some people and cultivated in others; but generally speaking, human beings can detect desperation from a mile away. We see it every day. The real skill comes in figuring out the reason in the madness. Desperation emerges out of one place: fear. Fear triggers us to reach too far; to overcompensate. Unfortunately, that overcompensation always seems to attract unwanted attention.” http://lastresistance.com/2170/democrats-grow-increasingly-desperate-during-scandalpalooza/
I know that I can easily detect desperation in a person. I would hope that the majority of the electorate will come their senses and begin to detect the same. If you follow any of the liberal news outlets, you will see that the MSM is finally figuring it out for themselves. They are also beginning to question the validity of anything the President, or anyone in his administration, says.
