Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Thanks for asking. My jaws hurt from having to smile almost every minute of the day. Let me just give you a little list.
>He beat Hillzilla fair and square.
>Caused a total meltdown with liberal scumbags.
>Said scumbags are crying in every circumstance.
>Said scumbags are rioting in the streets.
>Scumbag educators are losing track of their endoctrinated, underage students.
>Scumbag educators are allowing their of-age students to cry, whine, faint and protest to the point that they get into a total frenzy and can’t take their required exams/tests.
>Liberals are shooting cops and beating up people cause Trump won. Huh?
>Causing a complete panic with scumbag liberals that they are threatening the electoral college personnel into giving Hillzilla the presidential win.
>Putting companies wanting to use cheap labor in other countries on notice and it is working.
>Putting the MSM on notice to where they continue to whine and lose even more credibility. ( was there any left? )
>Put country leaders on notice, and those leaders are already having talks to “change their ways and outlook of America”. Imagine that.
>Placing highly qualified people into posts and positions in his administration that will get those specific jobs done.
>Bringing back law and order and enforcing the same.

Oh snap! I could do his all night. We are talking bringing back a much better healthcare system; enforcing immigration laws and stopping much immigration; possible reciprocity concealed carry laws for all 50 states ( I am now reading reports where citizens who carry have helped and even saved police officers ). Make America America again. I do want him to prosecute those who have been criminal and corrupt in the administration of O’Bummer. I do want these Mayors…..excuse me…these criminal scumbag Dem mayors to have the full weight of the Constitution and federal law to come down on their heads if they carry out their illegal threats of ignoring federal law. Heck, I would like to see the Democrat party listed as a hate group and have all the vitriol prosecutable. I would also like to see the Democrat party symbol change from an ass to a Zebra behind bars but I’m sue there would be some kickback from the SPCA. Sorry Zebras, it was just a thought. And I would really like to see a naked Hillzilla in the stocks of the town square, with 50 bushels of really rotten tomatoes for “feeding” purposes but I know that will never happen because no one could stand the sight of a naked Hillzilla!!! TeeHee.

Well, folks, I pray that today we elect Donald Trump to be our next President.  He can, for a while, slow our descent into a banana republic.  But only for a while.

We must reform our immigration laws to stop allowing people to come here just because a family member came here — the “chain migration.”  So many people come to this country, become citizens, and then vote for the party that promises the same things that caused the countries they left to become socialist shit-holes.  At least we won’t have to have border guards to keep people in — there will be nowhere left to go.

But even stemming that tide, we are dying out.  Liberalism and feminism have bred stupidity and selfishness such that people who get “liberal arts” degrees now know less than people fifty years ago who did not go to college and in their selfishness they have fewer children, if any, so they can buy more shit they don’t need.

Western civilization, and our republican, federal system of government, are the best things ever devised by Man.  But they are no match for the stupidity and selfishness of liberalism and feminism.

French Economist Thomas Picketty has published a new tome touted by the left entitled Capital in the Twenty-First Century.  I picked up this book (downloaded the Kindle version, actually) because I simply could not believe what the progs were saying about it, which is that Picketty claims that, if the average return on capital (r) exceeds the rate of growth of the economy (g), then wealth inequality increases.

I read this and said to myself, “Self, these fool progs obviously cannot understand what this man is talking about.  It is obvious that he must mean the growth in the valuation of the economy; that is, of all the capital goods in the economy.”  This is, of course, quite obvious.  If the average annual return on capital investments is 5%, but the total valuation of the capital of the economy increases 6% per year, then someone besides the original investors must own that newly created 1%.  And if the total valuation of all the goods in the economy only goes up 4%, then the investors must be getting their extra 1% from someone else, and wealth inequality will increase.

Alas, the progs were right, and Picketty’s hypothesis, which they swallowed hook, line, and sinker, is a total dud.  He really is using the wrong growth rate for comparison.

A simple example can illustrate the problem.  Let us assume that economic output (GDP) does not grow from one year to the next.  But the economy does still have output.  It is still producing durable goods — cars, televisions, houses, etc.  If the production of those goods is greater than the depreciation of existing goods (cars, televisions, and houses eventually wear out and are replaced), then the total valuation of the goods in the country increases.  If that valuation increases more than the return on the capital invested to create them, then wealth inequality must decrease, even with no growth in output.

Still, Picketty’s tome is valuable for the data it presents.  It will also be used as a tool for the progs to argue for a wealth tax (as Picketty recommends).  Thus, the work is important because one must understand its premise, the data it presents, and the flaw in Picketty’s logic, so that one can successfully counter the arguments the progs will make based on this work.  Thus, I will endeavor to write several posts on this book, one section at a time.

A government “fix” is like “fixing” a cat — it’s never quite right afterwards.

Well, the bean-counters at the Social Security Administration decided it was time for a Cost-of-Living adjustment (COLA) for beneficiaries.  There wasn’t one last year.  No inflation, they said.  So the great adjustment for this year is 0.3% — about $4 per month for the average recipient.  That’s one extra Big Mac per month.

Meanwhile, the Social Security Wage Base will go up 7.34%, from $118,500 to $127,200.  How does that work?

Simple — they just use different calculations.  The benefits are increased by the inflation rate, and the wage base (when there is a COLA) is increased based on the Average Wage Index.  Isn’t that cute?

Well, it turns out that the Wage Base has increased 35% over the last twelve years, but the Cost-of-Living Adjustment has only given beneficiaries a 22% increase.

Does the word BOHICA mean anything to you?

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton

  • Tacitly supported the illegal coup in Ukraine which ousted the pro-Russian president, giving Russia the excuse it needed to reclaim the Crimea and parts of ethnically-Russian eastern Ukraine.  (I guess that’s the “Reset with Russia” she talked about.  Well done.)
  • Sat on her hands while our people were murdered in Benghazi.
  • Watched and cheered the Arab Spring, which tore apart the Middle East.
  • Failed to negotiate the Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq, resulting in a power vacuum which was then filled by ISIS.
  • Funneled arms to ISIS, with the intent that they would be used against Assad.  ISIS is using those arms against us, and Assad is still in power.  (Thanks in large part to our “Reset with Russia,” of course.

Clinton was given executive power, and failed every time it mattered.

I’ll bet they leaked the questions to the Clinton campaign.

And already, both don’t answer the question.

Of course, Obama said Hillary is not fit to be president.
