Written by a Democrat

Not only written by but the writer – Ted Van Dyk almost calls it just as it is – for the most part the nonsense flowing from the remaining Democrats of today is the problem as pointed out clearly in his remarks.  BTW, this man – Van Dyk – 30+ years of various Democrat Party action and involvement.  Here goes – some of his comments:
·         Their successors in the party have continued to focus on cultural issues with limited appeal. Their focus on political correctness and conformity has left an impression on traditional Democrats that their party leaders care more about transgender bathroom access than employment, the cost of living, education or public safety. Mrs. Clinton’s “deplorables” reference struck home with these voters.
·         Decades later, urban black communities in particular are in crisis. School dropout and incarceration rates, high black-on-black murder and other crime rates, births out of wedlock far outnumbering intact families, pervasive drug dealing and use, and a disgraceful poverty rate should shame all of us.
·         Political scientist V.O. Key famously observed that “the voters are not fools.” Millions of them, including traditional Democrats, driven by anger and frustration, abandoned their political roots last November to make Donald Trump president. Many probably sensed that chaos and fumbling would follow. By their lights, it was an acceptable price to pay to rid themselves of leaders who had forgotten them.

Much more coming from one of the few Democrats who recognize that the problem of America today is largely of their making – not entirely – there are plenty Republicans who share similar guilt and responsibility – but the remaining current group of Democrats today never mention anything displaying the realization Mr. Van Dyk does.  It’s available at – https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-democrats-biggest-problem-is-cultural-1501193226

There is no government that lasts that seeks the nonsense of today’s Democrats and a good chunk of Republicans – it’s just not the way responsible people are – not the way they develop and survive and most certainly not the way they live when under their own guidance and control.

BTW, closing observation – the Democrats don’t like this Van Dyk guy – one thing we know – well it’s a fundamental – if you spend time with people who are not open to other peoples thinking and analysis – it speaks volumes about them and why a thinking person may choose to move on.  A number of Democrats did so last November.  Is Don the right guy?  Probably not but that really has little to do with the process underway and all this guy can say is – let’s hope it ultimately works because the alternative stinks.

We like this book

The book is - PT 109: An American Epic of War, Survival, and the Destiny of John F. Kennedy – June 7, 2016 by William Doyle  

Here are the reasons we like it:

·         We read it fast – about one day – why?  We didn’t want to put it down

·         We have often thought about the decline and fall of our politicians and our many nonmilitary government people and have for some time darn near concluded that our (America’s) last two top good guys were – General Eisenhower and Lieutenant John F. Kennedy

·         This book tells us about Lt. Kennedy and just a few years of his life and we don’t know if the author got it 100% right – we know this – even at a fraction of that measurement – well read it and you see what you think

·         We want to close with this simple yet obvious connection – it’s a fundamental – we are blessed – fortunate – we are not alone with this fortunate blessing – we know that the country to the north of us as well as the place that we had to remove a couple of century’s ago and a few of their other settlements around the globe – we know how blessed we Americans are to have these as our allies – so revisit what General Eisenhower and Lieutenant Kennedy did working with those others so that today we get to deal with 435/100/9 of the greatest nincompoops ever to run our spectacular country and…

·         …pray (also fight for it – vote for it – read/learn about it) that someday we will again be guided by the good women and men who not only saved us in the 1940’s they raised us – they taught us – they left it up to us to continue – and so far we are failing…so far.

Small generator – crew of three

A bit of further info – “The cost per use?”  "It's about a dollar a shot."

And – “Could (it) shoot down a missile…”   maybe…

Thank you.  Keep up the good work – please.

When will the dopey republicans wake up?

What do we mean by “wake up?”

And then one might just see why we titled this brief piece as we did.

We know the democrats are just lost in a damaging – actually destroying – way of life and politics but mostly just wasting money that mostly comes from debt and no one even mentions – hey, who is gonna repay all that debt?  Meanwhile the few remaining places they control – mostly big old cities and counties and states – in debt up to their tiny brains and big fat behinds and the one common feature all these nincompoops share?   Never say a word about debt.

Meanwhile – just take a look at the title above – the dopey republicans cannot bring themselves to get together – use their tiny majority – and get the business of a few good decisions done and enforced.  Just too scared that some good policy and good management and reduced spending and big time reductions in the hundreds of thousands of dopey bureaucrats most all of whom vote for the dopey democrats would actually have to join the bulk of us who work making something or growing something or building something or fixing something and so on.

Which group is worse?  Very difficult to answer that question – they both stink as do the 9 dopey judges who could simply say something as basic and legal as – hey, dopes, you borrow money – you have to repay it – not roll it over and over and stick little kids with it.


Stupid sh**

Later in the morning, on a call with analysts, a more-animated-than-usual Dimon took his earlier statements one step further:
So, no, in spite of gridlock, we’ll grow at 1.5% or 2%. I don’t buy the argument that we’ll relegate this forever. We’re not. If this administration can make breakthroughs in taxes and infrastructure regulatory reform. We have become one of the most bureaucratic confusing litigious societies on the planet. It’s almost an embarrassment to be an American citizen traveling around the world and listening to the stupid sh—t we have to deal with in this country. And at one point we all have to get our act together or we won’t do what we’re supposed to do for the average Americans. And unfortunately, people write about this being like it’s for corporations. It’s not for corporations. Competitive taxes are important for business and business growth, which is important for jobs and wage growth. And honestly, we should be ringing that along to every single one of you, every time you talk to a client.

Comment s’il vous plait – Thank you Mr. Dimon – more wisdom in a few words to describe our government dopes and our media dopes all of whom (folks there are hundreds of thousands of these overpaid unneeded nincompoops) simply need a lengthy “vacation” – unpaid of course!

Lord’s Player

Something we think is very worth reading.  Pls go to:

God bless this man – and thank you God for not only ordaining him but letting us find out about and read about this man.

One more thing – we do know some others – and we simply say to each – God Bless You and thank you.  We need you.

For Catholics and others

The fellow writing these few words is and has been a Catholic since beginning in his Mom’s womb.  Alas, not always a good one.  He thanks the good Lord for allowing some added time to shape up.

He came across this article and wishes to share it – http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/religion/article160165564.html

Not just because it is about a good guy; a good priest – but because times have changed and are changing and the idea of a married Catholic priest?  Well sounds pretty darn good to this old guy for a lot of reasons.  Other ideas and changes in the article are also worth considering and doing.

One of the things the priest in the article, Father McSweeney, says is, “…he’d like the church…to be more about hospitality and less about judgment.” 

And also – “McSweeney said he’d also support the church re-opening the door to married priests by making celibacy optional – as it was the first 1,000 years of Roman Catholicism.”

“First 1,000 years” – holy smokes folks – something is going on – something worthwhile.  We love America – mostly as it once was – not all that long ago – but we got a long way to go and we better start to shape up.

There is a lot more in this article – a lot more – a 75 year old guy who simply sees life as part of God and Jesus’ way of seeing and doing things.  Pretty darn good way of thinking we think.  He also says the “…Catholic population is booming…” and we notice it also and we are with him on his suggestion – as we recall Jesus didn’t say anything about married guys not carrying His message forward.  Heck, even as a disciple!

We simply are blessed to have good men like this – folks there are a lot of good men around – and not a one of them would be here were it not for a really darn good woman.

Thank you Father McSweeney – God Bless You.

Folks it’s not just dopey democrats that stink to high heaven

Please read this man’s straightforward and rather easy to understand overview of how terrible a good portion – maybe darn near 100% - of our two ridiculous political party nincompoops are and what it means for those of us who get to make a very basic choice – do we wish to support ridiculous candidates who are destroying our country or do we wish to find – maybe even do it ourselves – fundamental candidates who know how and why we became this wonderful land and how and why and who are simply destroying it.

Folks we simply need a new political party of good women and men who have the courage and the conviction to end this ridiculous debt rising nonsense – start paying it down – and reduce the government nincompoops by the numbers – yes we mean massive reductions – and start paying them the same level of pay we regular people earn and also receive limited benefits from as we compete in the private sector.

Worth reading

Peggy Noonan wrote it – well worth a few minutes for anyone wondering what the heck is really going on.
