Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

With the notable exception of Gina Rinehart, the ten richest women in the world all inherited their billions, while the ten richest people (all men) all earned their billions.  Yes, Rinehart did inherit her three-quarters of her father’s company, Hancock Prospecting, in 1992.  But she turned her $A75 million inheritance into the $A10B it is today.  That’s a 20+ percent annual return for 25 years!

The other nine — not so much.  There is nothing wrong with inherited wealth.  The idea of leaving something for our children and grandchildren drives many of us to work and save and invest.  But inheriting wealth and creating wealth (even with the intention of passing it on to your heirs) do not benefit the world the same way.  Creating wealth for oneself invariably requires that one create wealth for others, too.

I have tried to divest myself of politics for some time now. I rarely watch the news and only listen to news radio when driving at work. I am so dismayed and disillusioned with the pettiness and ignorant pursuits into individuals past rather than doing the people’s business. It is hard to believe that The Republican Party has the reigns yet they act just as much Democrat as the liberals do. Moreover, citizens (use the term loosely here) keep voting these same con artist scumbags back into office because they, these constituents, are still the ignorant lemmings they have always been. I have also lost my faith in these people because they don’t act like concerned citizens but more like greedy, selfish freeloaders.

I listened to the news tonight and found that some Democrat Senators are being accused of “groping” women and their “fan base”, fellow Democrats, are protecting them BECAUSE they aren’t Republicans. Pissing match over some directorship of an illegal Obama created adency. Pocahontas Warren is upset and was called out by Trump as a fraud. Meanwhile 6 or 7 Senators can’t get onboard for tax reform. This is it? This is what Congress works for? About to go on another break and nothing getting done again. Truly pathetic and showing good reason why they shouldn’t receive retirement or free healthcare or most other perks. They have already set up ways to get rich while stifling American progress.

ACT is a really caring and passionate individual with a heart of gold. Always wanting to help others in any way I can. Opinionated, yes, but always looking for ways to better myself and learn to let go of the things I can’t control or change. I have had some major pitfalls and crisis in my life over the past couple years. Keeping the Christmas spirit and my GOD ever present during these times has allowed me to endure and rebound; ever smiling and avoiding those things that promote negative feelings. While shopping the other day, looking for my Christmas puzzles to distract me and satisfy my time, I jumped over to the DVD section to get my latest addition to my Star Wars collection when a movie caught my eye. I didn’t see it in the theaters and it just won’t come out on prime so I decided to buy it. The movie was called “13 Hours” and is the account of the real story of what happened at Benghazi (not the complete account as the information is being stifled by the Dems). I have watched it 3 times in two days and each session has the same affect as the others. I shake my head and cry. It makes me sick, sad and mad. It brought back why I was on here in the first place yet, other than the continual phone calls and emails to Congress, I know that nothing has changed and won’t get resolved.

This movie, along with all the other egregious acts of the Obama administration and its cronies, are yanking me back to the conflict. I really don’t have the energy to go through and hash this over once again. How wonderful this country could be if we took all the “breaks and holidays” away from Congress and made them do their work. The work that still needs to be done is to get all the information about these issues that has plagued us for so long. Stalling or obstruction needs to be immediately met with jail time. As Hillbilly would say, no one is above the law and she, and all other criminals in the administration, should be brought to justice. When these acts end up being punished with long prison terms or execution, I believe that much of the criminal Congressional and cabinet elements would cease to be. I find that if there is no accountability then people tend to be bolder the next time they commit acts of criminality or treason. It is never too late and there should never be a statute of limitations on acts of this kind.

The movie is worth watching, if you can. It is graphic and emotional, but most of all it shows how the people who are there care the most and try to do the right thing when the system fails them. This is the problem with politics, politicians and the bureaucracy of today in America. You can bet your last dime that whatever happens, when you need help or relief, the system will always fail you.

So we have this guy, Cesar Sayoc, who decides he is going to cause mayhem and be noticed. Now I specifically picked the post article so that you could see some thing they are trying to promote. They say he went to college and is articulate, which infers intelligence. They say he is Christian which infers he is God fearing. They say he never was into politics before Trump came on the scene which infers a mindless, partisan political follower. Mostly they state he is crazy (which is great for his trial defense). Put together; just another normal Trump republican. That is paraphrasing the post in “nice” terms.

It talks about his moods, demeanor and hatreds which paints a different picture than that of a Republican. The stickers on his van with hate groups and targets marked over prominent Dem leaders (a big no-no if you don’t want to be arrested) shows much ignorance. If he was so intelligent then why couldn’t he spell (do some research) or make a better bomb? The crap he made wasn’t going anywhere or doing anything. So what was the reason and intentions?

The story will continue to unfold. It is sucking up the news which changes direction in the short term for voting. Another coincidence? You know how I feel about that term. The saying goes “It only takes one oh shit to erase all the atta-boys”. In essence, the Dems believe that Bozo the Bomb Maker will nullify all the aspersions that the Dems have been spewing forever towards Trump and the GOP. Maybe but highly unlikely. There are all kinds of crazies in the world and one rotten apple in the barrel doesn’t compare to one barrel full of rotten apples. This story, continuing forward, will unfold with a plethora of entertainment, I am sure. Time to start building the nut houses again.

Went fishing for a week to take a break from all the summer chores I have had to do with/around my house. The friend I stayed with is liberal but semi-logical. His wife if a fanatic, fundraising, phoe banker and door knocker for the Dem loonies. The Trump jabs were always thrown and the TV was always on CNN or MSNBC. Needless to say I had better things to do (fishing) but she used an enjoyable vacation to fill her need of Dem mush. EVERY DAY! ALL DAY! I never kept track of what was going on till the ride home, where I found out that this Ford woman was going to meet the Judiciary Committee, along with Kavanaugh. Ok. Got all caught up in 5 minutes.

The morning after returning home and since it was raining, I decided to have a lazy day and watch the circus with the Judiciary committee. I was very moved with Ford’s testimony and found that HER truth seemed credible–meaning she really believed it. The prosecutor the GOP used was good but it was slow moving (as building a case always does) and, although I saw where she was going with the continuous poking of small holes at every turn, that point seemed to escape others because there was no “gotcha” points made. The reason the GOP used her is because they where not about to listen to how mean they were with there questions and didn’t understand her because she is a woman and the GOP was just a bunch of “old white guys”. Guess what? Didn’t matter because today it was said that the GOP was mean to Ford. Made me wonder if the Dems were at the same meeting I was watching. It was probably their Dem clones. Too bad. This lady had no time, place or good recollection of anything. Evidently her lawyers (one being an avid RESIST and anti-Trump individual) didn’t tell her that she could have been interviewed anywhere she wanted. Matter of fact, until she got outed by those who she trusted with her annonimity (evidently she trustee Dems for some reason. Silly rabbit) why did she feel she needed a lawyer? Why did she feel the need a polygraph where she was asked 2 questions but NO evidence of how it was performed? How come she is scared of flying but does it anyway with great frequency? She had a vague recollection of those events of 35 years ago. Ok. Trauma causes a lapse in memory at times but she couldn’t remember what she did or said 4 to 6 weeks ago either. Did anyone catch that and feel that a mental competency exam might be in order? I don’t believe in coincidence and this woman was that.

Then Kavanaugh came in. Very emotional and irate over the injustice being done to him, his family and all his extracurricular activities. He got a little testy at times but otherwise stood up for himself. He presented some evidence that corroborated his denial of any knowledge of the accusation being put upon him. He called it what it was–a besmirching of his character and a search and destroy mission on behalf of the Dems. What I recall is that when he was first considered for the appointment, about every Dem said they wouldn’t vote for him, without even going thru the process of reviewing his history or personal interviews. That would be political. They even said they wouldn’t vote for him because he was Trump’s pick and Trump, as everyone knows, is a deranged lunatic as the Dema see it. Now the Dems are stating that Ford was credible and believable yet Kavanaugh has anger issues and dodged all the questions. Wow. Who would have saw that coming.

All this revolved around trying to get Flake’s vote. When he was listening to the accuser and the accused, he had all but made up his mind. When the Dems continued to trash the process, it cinched Flake’s vote. Wait. What? Coons took Flake aside and after bending his ear somewhat, along with a radical confrontation at the elevators with a Communist female community organizer from the old ACORN organization, Flake buckled and vowed his vote out of committee IF the full Senate floor vote could be postponed for one week while the FBI reopened investigation into these late allegations. He got his wish. Another delay to have more loons come out of he woodwork and assert more unfounded accusations to stop this SCOTUS confirmation. Nothing will change in 7 days. The Dems will not be satisfied nor will any of them (outside of those that are hurting for re-election) vote for the nominee. Nothing but a circus.

Something I saw which I haven’t seen mentioned: Alyssa Milano, who was a “guest” of Feinstein, was sitting 3 rows back from Kavanaugh. She was constantly working her phone. Then she pulled out a blue folder and slipped out what I recognized was one of the Vote No Kavanaugh signs, which I had seen earlier used by a bunch of mindless trolls while following Graham down the tunnel. I was waiting for her to stand, shout, and disrupt the proceedings. One of the Senate security guards had seen it also and stopped by briefly to warn her. When Grassly started to “clarify” something between Senators, that same guard went back to Alyssa and took the sign away. Too bad. I think that could have been very telling as to the Dem circus.

There is no civil servant duty anymore. Seems that the Dems were vying for future jobs, speaking engagements, and just plain old insane Dem tricks. Blumenthal is a creepy guy and makes me want to hide children in his presence. Harris I believe is Water’s niece. All of them have no shame and all give credence to why no one likes the government. If things don’t change soon then I believe this Republic is toast. Maybe we will be annexed by Cuba. Who the hell knows.

Normally I would not give a rat’s ass about this and not even post on the subject but I just can’t abide with all the praise lavished on the man.

Death comes to us all. Deal with it. People should be remembered for the good they have done to individuals which have changed their lives for the better. This is what God intended. I take nothing away from McCain for his military service, being incarcerated in a hell hole in Vietnam and organizing POWs to survive the unlivable conditions that they endured. He has my respect on this matter.

McCain became a Senator for what he endured and some of what he espoused. Unfortunately the man was the true definition of the word “RINO” and many people suffered or died because of either his inaction on matters or picking the wrong side……and I do mean the dark side. His “expertise” on the matter of torture would include a parent having to listen to a baby crying. Because all things were torture, bad guys were not interrogated properly and no discernible information was gathered. I wonder if he would think that blowing whistles or yelling thru a bullhorn into people’s ears was torture. Haven’t heard a peep about it while he was alive.

May he rest in peace. May he also fade into oblivion with his political career as the Kennedys have done. Stop the praise. There are too many good common people that aren’t getting theirs.

Back in the old days there used to be a Democrat party (blue dog Dems) that where different from the GOP in that they tried to be charitable with YOUR money in giving others “freebies”. That was pretty much the difference between the two parties. Reagan came along and re-instilled values and responsibilities in government. Not perfect but absolutely on the road to recovery. Bill Clinton even helped to further some initiatives that instilled respect and responsibilities in the citizenry (no, I am not talking about Clinton as a role model). Then things started going way south

Remember the hippie days of the late 60′s and the “revolution”? That upset the apple cart. Radicals hated the government and did things to change societies’ mindset of how things should be. They started infecting things like our school systems and Congress by taking seats in these institutions. It has gone downhill from that point. This country became bad and everything that would stood for was bad. Within these institutions they have been successful in indoctrinating the jelly brained. They where capable of getting the MSM on board to further their war on America. The sole idea is to shame others into getting your way. Not because it is value added but because it “feels good and right”. Mental institutions are closed, criminals are released from prison or not even captured because these criminals are just misguided and need a second chance to straighten out. Or third chance, fourth chance, fifth chance,…… These people need and deserve their freedom, or so we are told. Everyone in the world that can’t make a go of it in their own country or refuse to change their own system, DESERVE AND HAVE THE RIGHT to come to our country because we are the world’s honey-pot and these people are owed (or so we are told). You read the news. Unless your head is in the sand, you have seen this happening for decades. If you bought into this ideology then you are the problem.

Many, many years ago and many posts past I warned of where society was going and the “head” which was inevitable. It is here. Now. Many people have Trump syndrome and it has absolutely allowed this Dem…..I will not say they are Dems but rather insane radical socialists…..group to completely go off the rails. Common sense have left most of society and God, morals and ethics have long vacated the premises (actually pushed out of society through shame and guilt). I wasn’t a Trump convert till he won the primary. I also don’t like many things he does but, then again, I am fair across the board in my beliefs. What he has done is bring us from the brink and put pride back into this country. Problem being the radicals can’t get their way because his President doesn’t stand for this nonsense and pushes back. What can the radicals do? VIOLENCE!!!

I absolutely cannot believe what I am seeing on the news nor can I understand how blatantly biased and ignorant the MSM is. The MSM continue to make, build and push the narrative that “good” is bad and “evil” is the American way. Here is where things have gone. I am armed at all times. If I am touched, spit on, have things thrown at me, whistle or bullhorn blown in my ear, I will fight back. This is assault on me and will not be tolerated. Too many others think exactly the same as I. We are being assaulted by terrorists and they hide behind their rights when it suits them but continue to step over the line when it comes to YOUR rights. So many radical rallies by the left where they state “there will be blood”. Well, there should be dialogue but the left continues to stifle or shut that down. They think this is the forefront of a new revolution (RESIST?) but, it appears, they haven’t thought things out. They are relying on “good people” being timid (weren’t they the ones that started this “bullying” initiative everywhere?) so that they can reign their terror unopposed. God teaches, my parents taught and so did society in general: actions have consequences. I don’t think these radicals understand that but there will be a lesson to be learned. Shame. I don’t relish a civil war in this country but that is what is being pushed.

There are liable laws; inciting laws; disorderly conduct laws; harassment laws and assault laws. We need to start enforcing them. Boycott institutions that tear at the fabric of a good society. Shutdown venues that incite radical and disorderly conduct. Incarcerate those that promote terror and violence. We need to take his country back from the loons. Mental institutions need to be built and utilized. We can cure the hunger and homeless in this country. We haven’t tried to cure the stupid. Take back our schools with competent teachers and don’t allow your children to attend “radical” institutions of “higher learning”. There aren’t many real institutions left to learn from. Bottom line is that nothing is going to change until the violent radicals have blood in the streets, which is their wish. Be careful what you wish for!!!

Way too much has occurred in my life over the last couple of years and, unfortunately, priorities have pulled me away from this site. I do have a reason but I will not use it as an excuse. I just want to apologize for what I feel was neglecting you and this site. Although things have calmed down quite a bit, I have changed somewhat and don’t really know the place I am in, although it has been with me for sometime and I have gotten somewhat use to it.

This may seem cryptic but I don’t air personal things to strangers ( nor anyone else that isn’t the closest of friends) so I will just say that I am somewhat back here and just see where and how it goes.

To Wolve, my Yank friend, I hope your wife is okay and on the mend. You are doing exactly what a loving husband should do and you have your priorities straight. I will add your wife to my prayers.
