A rather simple common sense suggestion


In case you don’t, here are a couple of paragraphs from the article about decrees –

Regulations on commodities speculation, air pollution from the oil industry, doctors’ Medicare drug payments and high-skilled immigrant workers are among the rules moving through the pipeline as Obama’s administration grasps at one last chance to cement his legacy. So are regulations tightening states’ oversight of online colleges and protecting funding for Planned Parenthood.

Also moving ahead are negotiations on an investment treaty with China and decisions by the Education Department on whether to offer debt relief to students at defunct for-profit colleges. The Department of Transportation may also go ahead with a ban on cell phone calls on commercial flights and a rule requiring that most freight trains have at least two crew members on duty.

Now the article also states that these decrees can be undone when the new administration takes over.  Sure sounds good, doesn’t it?  It is total crap.  Read again these few words from above – “…cement his legacy.” 

What needs to be done are the simple, quick, and a total end of these outfits.  Yes, that will require legislation and presidential signature/approval.  Will that take time?  You Bet!  Will that give the dopey American media lots of opportunity to whine/complain/name call/etc. the new administration? You Bet!

Does this new administration have the you-know-what to do this?  Well, folks we will see but there is no simple way to avoid the basic issue – America is now run by dopes by the hundreds of thousands – actually millions if you add in all the dopes in Illinois and New York and California and many, many more large cities and counties and states.

And folks, the only way to change?  Fire them – shut down the agencies and their nonsense – ONCE AND FOR ALL.
We’ll see.

American Federation for Children

Before we start a few comments – here is their website:  http://www.federationforchildren.org/
Their leader – a top woman from Michigan – is Betsy DeVos.  And, as you may know, Mr. Trump just named her – Education Secretary.  We knew she was in the running – we hoped she would be appointed.

And here is why:
Mrs. DeVos is the chairman of the American Federation for Children.  Here is their mission
The American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice seek to improve our nation’s K-12 education by advancing systemic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.
Their vision:
We believe public education must be defined as providing families with the public funding they need to choose the education they determine is best for their children.

The American Federation for Children envisions an education system where parents are empowered to choose the best educational environment for their child, where innovation and entrepreneurism revolutionizes our education system, ensuring all children, especially low-income children, are provided with the opportunity to receive the finest education possible, whether it be in a traditional public school, public charter school, virtual learning, private school, home school or blended learning.
Here is what they do:
The American Federation for Children focuses its time and resources on supporting state-level efforts to provide low-income and middle class families with access to great schools through publicly-funded private school choice. We also work strategically with school choice allies in the charter school community. The family of school choice includes school vouchers, scholarship tax credit programs, Education Savings Accounts, public charter schools, virtual charter schools, home schools, and meaningful public school choice.


All we can say is – good job Mr. Donald – terrific choice.  And to Mrs. DeVos – we, TheFundamentals, as well as this old guy will be more than pleased and honored to help you in any way possible.  America needs this change, more than we can say!

A wonderful Thanksgiving gift to the United States of America!  And we mean every American youngster and student!  Sit tight folks - this is one heck of a needed change and it will rattle out the nonsense of a large group in our country that simply needs to move on!

Bye – Bye Barack

Barack’s top act over eight years – massive debt – we will not and cannot get away from that top situation totally connected to this one guy.  This one guy has no clue what it takes to offer basic jobs and other forms of employment and some lower but reasonable earnings capabilities to either uneducated or simply folks who have limitations in what they can do to service or produce or otherwise participate in an economy.

Barack does not get it and never will.  Barack gets debt – plain and simple.

What he brought was himself and his attitude that it was all about him – except, of course, for those who had done something of some value but not necessarily economic or productive or job creating.  So bye- bye Mr. Barack.  We will do well without you and much better than we did with you.

We have read – actually studied a bit about the damage Barack has done to the Democrat Party.  Now we know that our media, at least 90+% of it that is, prefers to seldom discuss it much less offer some simple statistics about his damage.  We are not going to focus on it today other than to just mention a few components of Barack’s damage –

-       Under Barack more Democrats in more elected jobs in various places have simply lost their elected positions – gone.  For good?   We sure don’t know but we do know that it appears that the damage process he built to its highest level is still underway.  To which, Barack, we say a few things:
o   One, good for Americans for simply recognizing and reacting and then acting for the betterment of their home state, city, county and our nation, and
o   Two, for the dopey Democrats led by a number one dope – well done – the learning message and rather obvious historic nonsense promoted and, when possible, enacted by you dopes has destroyed you in a majority of our states
o   Alas, not the big states – California and New York – Illinois and a bunch of financially troubled northeastern states.  It will come
o   When we force our self to listen, albeit briefly, to you and yours all we can say/think/contemplate/realize are these simple and oh-so bright words coming from a Democrat not all that long ago – “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
o   Normally we would continue this listing of Barack’s nonsense but frankly Barack is apparently going to be dedicated to advancing his nonsense and doing the best job he can to get those remaining Democrats in office in DC to back him up.  To which we say – go for it.  As one who supports Mr. Kennedy’s brief but oh-so intelligent words about our basic responsibility as Americans all we can say is keep up your nonsense – it is our path to best and quickly getting rid of you
o   We wish to close with this statement to the new guy coming in – we have heard nothing about 20 TRILLION DOLLARS OF WASHINGTON DC FEDERAL DEBT from you.  Time to wake up and start to pay it down.  This one observer cannot think of one responsible adult human parent – regular women and men that is – who burden their children with even pennies of debt much less darn near unrepayable amounts.

The dopey Democrats are disappearing due to this obvious stupidity and simple wrong doing.  The 90+% of press idiots or call them what you may – not a word about these dopes!  What on earth is wrong with darn near all America’s press?  Well almost the same that is wrong with the debt lovin’ dope Barack.

Wakeup Democrats

It is difficult to write an essay such as this one and not simply come across as a victorious nincompoop – or to simply connect it to someone we saw on TV a lot – the Clintons – and we still put the guy Clinton way ahead of the gal Clinton as one of America’s top dopes.  But, alas, Hill perhaps recognizing Bill’s decline, wishes the title.  If so, we most certainly will bestow it with an exception noted a bit later.

Now, what are we talking about?  Well, the easiest way if one doesn’t gather it from simply watching and listening to Hill and Bill over the past months is to offer this news report just published in today’s Chicago Tribune – front page –
“City tax-hike tab:  $1,700 a year”
“That’s average family’s cost for Emanuel’s budget increases”

That’s it folks.  What on earth has happened to America?  Are we fighting a conflict beyond all past conflicts?   Is our natural capability in such decline that we can’t grow food or raise animals to feed us?  Perhaps we are overwhelmed with a disease or some form of rapidly infecting ailment that can only be cured or controlled with massive additional payments to dopey nonsensical and overwhelmingly non performing government something’s or other?  Is that what is going on?

Folks – we pay our government’s way too much for things we don’t even care about.  We are not fighting for our lives.  We still have to find, in many situations at least, worthwhile education for our kids because the government version is simply a joke.  And pay separately for it.  We drain our resources for health care – for our family and loved ones – only to find out we are also paying for others who don’t have to pay for it.  Such a deal, huh?  But the one overwhelming and never – we mean never – discussed component of all this wasted nonsense are the millions of “employees” and other unneeded “dopes….” – and let us make this one statement loud and clear:
We do not include our military!
….who work for a government of which we, this beloved US of A, may well have more governmental workers than any other place ever in the history of the world!  We got ‘em in our towns, villages, cities – we got ‘em in our county’s – we got ‘em in our states – and then, as if that is not enough – holy smokes, we got a million or two in our federal government.

The dope Obama –  PTL, he will soon be departed to make a pile of money just like the two Clinton dopes have – this dope has only added – we use our larger type size –
TEN TRILLION DOLLARS TO FEDERAL DEBT
A simple comment about this fact – did anyone hear either Hill or Donald talk about repaying some of this DEBT?  The dope Obama never said a word!

So, how do we close this essay with the title we used – Wakeup Democrats?  We really don’t wish to say much more – half of us recognized this overwhelming/massive need for a change.  Half did not.  Will Trump make the change?  Can he?  We have no clue.  All we knew was that the dope Hill would not.  And 90+% of America’s press or whatever one chooses to call these dopes – they say nothing about it!

Let us close with one simple, human observation/question – how many of us as parents load our children with debt from borrowed money we spent for ourselves?

We’re doing it now – big time!  Massively!  We should be ashamed!  It should be outlawed!
