An honest man…

…well it is at least worth reading –


This link gives you a bit of the commentary – look up some more if interested.

Hang in there Mr. President – you are situated with the rather ridiculousness of several limited predecessors.

Good luck – we all will need it.

Mr. Bob Wilmers and a bit more

Til today we had never heard of Mr. Bob Wilmers nor the journalist – Ms. Christina Rexrode who wrote this article - https://www.wsj.com/articles/he-rides-a-decrepit-bike-and-owns-a-french-vineyard-the-unconventional-world-of-bank-ceo-bob-wilmers-1492767000

Once again all we can offer is the contact above and the again very simple fundamental or our  beloved land – keep the dopey government nincompoops at arm’s length and minimization – we do not include our military in that group – and follow the law and amazing things can still happen when good people get about doing what they are good at!

And now what may even be the better part of this brief link/connection, pls go to - https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/25/fashion/weddings/christina-rexrode-and-nick-zaccardi-married.html

Will Christianity Perish in Its Birthplace?

Please read at - http://buchanan.org/blog/will-christianity-perish-birthplace-126816

Happy Easter Week



Democrat party leaders…and a bit more

Ready – let’s go:

Dick Durbin – 72 years old.  Illinois senator for 20 years.  Here are a few simple facts about (IL) –

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s budget office estimates the state will have a budget deficit of over $5 billion by the end of fiscal year 2017, and billions more in the years to come. The Illinois comptroller’s website shows the state has a $10 billion mountain of unpaid bills. And the General Assembly’s analysts have announced the state’s pension debt has spiked to a record $130 billion.
For many, tax hikes look like the only solution to Illinois’ fiscal woes. But tax hikes will only make things worse. Illinoisans are already burdened with some of the highest taxes in the nation, including the highest property taxes of any state.
As a result of Illinois’ dysfunction, the state is bleeding people and its tax base. Between July 2014 and July 2015, approximately 300,000 people left Illinois for good and only 200,000 moved in, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This resulted in a loss of 105,000 residents on net to other states – an all-time high for Illinois. Tax hikes will only chase more residents away.

USA debt 20 years ago –   $  5.4 TRILLION
USA debt today –                 $19.8 TRILLION
We ask you this – why would the people of IL want this clown in the senate?  Much less in the state?   (Raises an interesting question about who benefits?)   Give the dope Obama credit for not going back to IL!

Next this dope from New York City –
Chuck Schumer – 67 years old.   NY senator for 19 years.  From the NYC – here is a recent statement about the NYC financial condition -

In our latest review of the financial conditions of the 20 largest cities in the United States, New York City ranked 20th among the 20 cities. Last.
This ranking is based on Truth in Accounting’s bottom-line “Taxpayer Burden” measure, which represents each taxpayer’s share of unfunded debt. New York City has accumulated over $150 billion in bills above and beyond assets available on the balance sheet, leading to a $61,000 bill facing city taxpayers, on average.
Starting to get the picture?

Here is the dopey gal from CA –
Nancy Pelosi – 77 years old.  Been in the House since 1987 – THIRTY YEARS FOLKS!
What pray tell was USA debt thirty years ago?  See below:
$ 2.3 TRILLION
Should we go on?  Well let’s do one dope from the other party – okay?

John McCain – 80 years old.   Been in the senate for 30 years – since 1987.   Debt when he arrived – see above.

Let’s close with a very simple and basic fundamental – actually two fundamentals.
1.    None of these dopes should be able to be in office for anything near their time periods much less get paid and benefitted as they are.  Cut their pay – set very short time periods of office – no more retirement and other benefits (i.e. – encourage Americans with other skills and employment opportunities to serve and then return to their respective jobs).   Now if you doubt the need for this, read #2 below.

2.    Debt must be repaid in reasonable time periods – no longer than 20 years.  And the dopes above – no more than 12 years total combined in the House and Senate.  Yes, we know, that is still a bit too long but it is a start.

Closing comment or whatever - is this ridiculous?  Dopey?  Undoable?   No folks it's not.  It simply will not get done as long as clowns like the above can be in office - stay in office - get paid for doing so - and not be forced to follow fundamental disciplines that all good Americans follow!  We work real jobs - we repay our debt!

Mr. Trump requests our input

Yes folks – he indeed does.  TheFundamentals says – we will do it and we will let others know how to do it.  Right now.  And we sure hope they do it too!

We suggest you watch the brief (only one minute - we like this guy already) presentation by the man with the task of making our federal government wiser, cheaper and hopefully a lot better working!   And then proceed to answer* as you see fit.
  
We must say as we get back to working on our response – good for them for offering this opportunity for those of us who occasionally (yikes if only it could be reduced, huh?) get to deal with federal, state, county, local and other governmental accumulations and unfortunately sometimes just unneeded and overpaid and over benefitted “folks” – it is well past time to cut ‘em back just as in case you haven’t noticed is going on and has been going on big time in many or our providers of needed products and services.  Folks the world is changing and we – TheFundamentals – say simply – we don’t need a darn good portion of the various government stuff we pay for and who knows – this may be our best chance to get rid of it!

Now if only we could do the same to all the dopey ads on TV – huh?  BTW, have you seen the media dopes talk about this request?   Maybe even encourage our input?  HUH?

* don’t delay too much – they are closing down the input on June 12th !!

A few thoughts/observations about the new guy – and then bye bye

Let’s start with the obvious ones – okay:

·         We remember the media fools crapping on him before he even said he was running.  Not just a little or occasionally – a lot and vigorously
·         To which we think – what would we have done in such a situation
·         To which we give the new guy credit – we would have been much worse – four letter word worse at a minimum
·         We don’t know the guy – he got a lot of crap from other nincompoops besides the press profound low IQ and incredibly stupid boys and girls and
·         The top leader of this crap – the Hill – a truly ridiculous but oh-so glorified leader of those who think this country is about what it does for you – well at least around election time
·         As we – thefundamentals – look back on this group of clowns (no disrespect to the good clowns) known as democrats – we see a mess – and a debt – and crappy cities – and bankrupt states – and fortunately – a slightly rising factual awareness in several of these locales – democrats are simply stupid
·         The Hill – top stupid – the Bill close second top stupid – the dopes who gave them money – seeking something – boy they sure did disappear fast last November
·         To which we say – America is this the crap you really want?
·         Now, we get to the true clown – we dare not say too much truth about this clown
·         He comes from a bankrupt city – bankrupt county – bankrupt state – where fortunately the younger folks – well some older ones too – are getting the heck out
·         He has no idea that borrowed money must be repaid.  Why you may ask?  If you have to ask all we suggest is read one or two of the front pages most any day from the Chicago Tribune – not the editorial crap on that paper – the facts
·         This clown (for the first time we now wonder – should we just use a factual terminology for this idiot?) did more damage to the USA than the dope LBJ – the dopes Nixon, Carter and maybe even the dope Clinton(s).  Time will tell
·         For those of you who demand impartiality – yes we also include the Bush Jr. in that list – well heck we also include a big bunch of the reps and senators who went along with a TWENTY TRILLION DOLLAR DARN NEAR UNREPAYABLE DEBT!!!!!
·         Enough.  Like America?  Maybe?  Then put up with this new guy and only insist on one thing while supporting or at least allowing his other things
·         What is that one thing?   Folks we all gotta repay our debt.  We simply can’t even ponder what kind of a**hole would possibly pass debt onto her/his kids – grandkids – little ones not yet even pondered much less conceived
·         Have at it Mr. Donald – they left you a big pile of crap – many of them are doing their darndest to lie and deceive because they know one thing for sure – it they aren’t employed by a government – one way or another – they gotta work – show up – do something – or bye bye
·         TheFundamentals is fine with bye bye - it's either us or them

A question to ponder

The question to ponder in this essay of just several hundred words is something that we – those of us who pay for government via more darn forms and ways and bills and debts and taxes and costs than are even remotely calculable these days – are now attempting to list for you and analyze for you is this:

How backward – how out of pace – how ridiculously ridiculous in a rapidly developing and changing world – a world of new products – new services – new ways of doing darn near everything – including those products and services frequently and alas unfortunately “done” by government – can it get before we simply realize and stop permitting “government” to do anything other than the few simple things they possibly can continue to be responsible for?

Or if you don’t or can’t quite grasp the vast and overwhelming applicability of the above few words to our ridiculous numerous layers of simply backward out of touch and just plain stupid governmental nonsense here in America today we then pose to you to answer – well first perhaps just ponder an answer – to this simple question – list those items you wish to purchase from your many local governmental entities and then add those items you wish to purchase from your many state governmental entities and then add those items you wish to purchase from your many federal governmental entities.  Okay? When done with that list we then pose to you to answer – this simple question – list those services (the above are items or products) you wish to purchase from……..

Get the picture?

If not we think there is a darn good chance you vote for democrats which means there is a darn good chance you listen to dopey democrats telling you how crappy the services and goods are when they are being controlled/supplied/voted on/etc. by dopey republicans, huh?  But not from them, huh?

And we close with this simple situation now occurring in our once phenomenal place where darn near everyone realized – the fewer things done by government – wow, the amazingly positive benefits and results for all – is simply gone – down the toilet – which is perhaps the one thing we need from a central source of supply and service – crap removal – someone needs to do it and at least this one guy cannot come up with anyone better to do it than those who produce it in so many other locations and activities these days.  The millions of mostly backward unadvanced and simply dopey folks earning big government salaries and benefits.

And no we again exclude our military although we are struggling about some police after we read about the ridiculous Chicago cop situation these days as to whether or not we can include cops along with the military!  (BTW, we don't think the cops there are the ones who can fix that democrat mess.)

Finally we do close with this – for some time now this once wonderful land has been run/overseen/taxed/and other piles of simply crap ridiculousness coming from the most undisciplined and simply inexperienced politicians and governmental do nothings (not the military) at all levels but mostly in our larger populated cities and states.   Anyone even occasionally reading here knows that the one and only thing they have to show for their ridiculousness is many, many trillions of dollars of debt for which these nincompoops to this very day – this very moment – say not a word about the kids born and not yet conceived who will get to repay them or simply be destroyed by them.

Folks – wake up.   No one did this crap to us – no foreigners – no religious nincompoops – no enemies – nope – not a one.  We did it to ourselves and at this moment we tolerate the dopes a plenty in all of our ridiculous governmental obscenities (not the military) with nary a moment of facts and plans to stop it.

Do we deserve the obvious answer to the question posed above?  You answer it!

Phenomenal misthinking

Here are her – Hillary’s stated reasons for losing the November 8, 2016 USA presidential election:
·         Russia
·         Misogyny
·         Comey
·         Wikileaks


Actually this brief outline of her stated thinking is the basis for the heading above – phenomenal misthinking.  Yes we mean it about her at this moment but it simply is an accurate definition of her political party – the Democrats – an accurate description of 90+% of American media today – this moment – and with the exception of our American military – it is an accurate description of much of our many governments and a darn good chunk of the other political party – the Republicans.

America is now overridden by people – human beings – who think America is about  governments that can do so many things for so many people regardless of outcome – regardless of cost – regardless of obvious nonsense – and most importantly regardless of historic results, consequences and just simple screw-up’s mostly the horrible behavior of a few and the consequences to so many.

Yet, people like the Hillary not only cannot see it they simply have virtually no history basis ever in their words – in their thinking – in anything about them.
 
Is it just Hillary?  Of course not.  All one need do is watch – listen – observe – folks it take so little common sense and so little historic awareness to grasp this situation.
 
No it’s not just Hillary.  The world is overwhelmed with Hillary’s.  Alas many of us have a chunk of the Hillary in us.  And yet many of us do not.

It apparently is life.  Simply life.  And yet we simply must make this modest observation after reading her comments – she thinks it is about others – others who are wrong – mislead – anti women – she is fairly basic in her assessment of others – what to this observer finds so missing in her self assessment – not only of her and her “family” but also her “political party.”

Always so easy – so quick – to blame others.

Which brings us to this closing comment – is it just us – us Americans?  We think not.  We see it all over the place – this moment – past moments.  The basic belief that government is the answer which brings us to the few simple words of a man who pretty well had it grasped - The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

It is rather funny to read the above – this guy writing the few words from Mr. Reagan doesn’t even think the government  dopes give a hoot and a holler anymore about even pretending they are here to help anyone other than their dopey selves.  They are BSr’s.

Is it funny?  Yeah.  Is it tragic?  You bet – even more so.  And we close with one very positive statement/observation – this one guy is overwhelmed with how many women – we want to repeat that – WOMEN – as well as guys who grasp this mess and yet have no idea what on earth to do about it other than live and care for those they love, need, respect and who need someone else.   People do it – governments don’t.


Final observation – get a chance – read Charles Krauthammer’s column today titled – Karma, precedent and the nuclear option – top notch per usual.

Worth reading…

…well we sure think so.

Two articles about two guys – darn good reading we think.



It starts tomorrow – we love it – the game – the guys – the way its run – and shown to us – and yep it is simply following good old well established and very long lasting concepts and “fundamentals.”  Darn good lesson for us all and its many values and needs, particularly today.

Misguided? Or just not all that bright?

It is an interesting time for a rather large group of folks who for many years now – actually decades – have had the running set of “principles” and “basics” and “governmental” and “foundational” standards – well at least laws were passed to support – all of these – their ways of running things.  We today – us Americans – now live in a country run by their ways and techniques and results (oops, yes, and debt.)   And lo and behold a rather large group of us Americans are simply sick and tired – fed up – simply ready willing and able to step up and say “enough” – well not just say it – try at least to do something about it.

We look at the “clowns” a plenty – again no disrespect intended with the use of this descriptive word for the good women and men who dress up to entertain our kids and grandkids – no we mean the other definitional group of “clowns” who mostly can be found in several locations doing not much of value.  This group of “clowns” includes:
·         As far as we can observe, darn near all Democrats
·         Ditto for a good chunk of Republicans
·         As far as we read/listen/observe 90+% of America’s “media” dopes, and
·         Yes, that includes the ones who pretend otherwise
·         And with one notable exception* – the masses not overpaid and phenomenally unneeded dopes in government jobs all over the place
·         Does that cover it?  Nope.  Anyone with an ounce of still working brain capability would add in the entirety of Hollywood – and a good chunk of its neighboring neighborhoods….
·         ….and all one need do to finish the list is observe those places now experiencing a good departure of the many older Americans who, like us, are simply fed up

Closing comment – s’il vous plait.  We look at the media mostly because – well, it’s the media.  As we all know it comes in a variety of delivery forms and fashions and folks it mostly simply stinks.  Why is that?  Well we have a pretty good idea but we instead are going to simply address its rather obvious and growing problem – people, many people are fed up with it and as it loses its audience and – surprise/surprise its money coming in – it is getting more and more lost in its nonsense.  Alas folks what we are learning is it needs someone else to hold accountable – heaven forbid it might recognize what really is going on.

And that folks is our closing comment/observation – it simply is clueless.  American media today is lost (yes, it has a chunk of followers (see above listing please) and seeks others to blame.

Misguided?  Or just not too bright?
