The Real Deplorables

October 25, 2016

The Media Sheep Morons are the real deplorables.  They blindly follow Hillary Clinton like sheep following a Judas Goat into the slaughter house.   The MSM Deplorables think Hillary is an empress wearing a beautiful gown.

Many of today’s journalists aren’t fit to clean the soles of Walter Cronkite’s shoes.   If the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens had occurred on Cronkite’s watch he wouldn’t have rested until he found out why Secretary of State Clinton left the Ambassador  to die in Benghazi on the anniversary of the original 9/11 attack.  The British withdrew their diplomats from Benghazi after a terrorist attack on the British
Ambassador’s motorcade.  Why didn’t the United States?  American law enforcement agencies recognized terrorist activity could occur on or near the anniversary of the original 9/11 attack.  Why didn’t Secretary of State Clinton?

Hillary Clinton’s inability to remember information about this major event should raise a red flag. Maybe she let him die because she forgot he was in danger.  Her stated inability to remember a major event could indicate Alzheimer’s.   What if Hillary happened  to forget  important information during a crisis?

Most of us are suspicious of people who become rich while working for government like the Clintons have done.   How do the Media Sheep Morons explain how the Clintons gained a fortune without winning the lottery?   How do they explain Secretary Clinton ‘s official meetings with her campaign contributors?

As a young woman Hillary Clinton got a job with a Senate Committee investigating dirty tricks in the 1972 presidential campaign.  Apparently she decided such dirty tricks were such a good idea she used some of them to get the presidential nomination.    The Washington Post  worked hard to expose President Nixon’s dirty tricks.   If Hillary gets away with using dirty tricks to become president, she may  make President Richard Nixon look honest when she runs for re-election.

The Media Sheep Morons see Hillary as an empress wearing a beautiful gown.  Millions of Americans see her as the Wicked Witch of the East and the Media Sheep Morons as her flying monkeys.

According to Noah Webster “The freedom of the press is a valuable privilege; but the abuse of it, in this country, … is a frightful evil. The licentiousness of the press is a deep stain upon the character of the country; & in addition to the evil of calumniating good men, & giving a wrong direction to public measures, it corrupts the people by rendering them insensible to the value of truth & of reputation.”

Sen. Tim Kaine Debates Like a Girl

October 8, 2016

I thought Hillary Clinton was one of the worst debate participants until I watched her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine.   I would compare both of them unfavorably to President George H.W. Bush’s Vice President Dan Quayle,  but most people wouldn’t know what I was talking about and I’m not ambitious enough to try to find a transcript to refresh my memory.

I admit I’m basing my comparison discussion of how women argue on how television portrays arguments then on a scientific study of the subject.    One of the most annoying practices used in arguments by female tv characters is bringing up some statement the man has made  in the past and making it the center of discussion.  This practice may serve some purpose in a personal conflict, but is often irrelevant in a discussion of political issues.

The impression I got about both candidates, with Kaine being the worst, is that they were trying to change the subject because they didn’t understand the issues they were discussing.   Kaine reminded me of a small child who keeps interrupting a discussion because he’s not getting the attention he wants.   His face reminded me of one of those little yappy dogs who should be muzzled.

If I had been considering voting for Hillary I would have changed my mind because I’m repelled by the thought of Tim Kaine being a heart beat from the presidency.  I wonder if it’s too late “to throw him under the bus” like George McGovern did to Thomas Eagleton.    If Kaine is an example of the type of people Clinton plans to appoint to federal office we will be in big trouble if she is elected.

I’m not opposed to a woman president.  I wish I had had an opportunity to vote for Shirley Chisholm or Elizabeth Dole, but neither could get her party’s nomination.  Condoleezza Rice was my  preferred choice to succeed President George W. Bush. I would likely have voted for Kathleen Sebelius if she had run this year or the two previous elections.

Women who support Clinton need to consider that if she fails badly [as is likely considering her record as Secretary of State] it may be 50 year before another woman will have a chance to even be nominated.   Jackie Robinson was able to bring about the integration of professional baseball because he was a great player.  If he had been  poor player other teams would probably have not signed black players.

I Don’t Care If Trump Paid Taxes

October 4, 2016

I’m a retiree getting by on Social Security and a state pension, but I don’t care if Donald Trump didn’t send a payment when he filed his federal income tax.   I didn’t send in a federal income tax payment either.  I didn’t have enough potentially taxable income to owe an income tax, but that doesn’t mean none of my income went to the Internal Revenue Service.

Simple minded Hillary Clinton has the same problem understanding our tax system that Mitt Romney demonstrated four years ago.   They both ignore the indirect or hidden taxes we all pay regardless of income.  They don’t understand what the late commentator Paul Harvey  would call the rest of the story.

The income tax isn’t the only federal tax. The federal government also taxes services like land line telephones and products like gasoline.

Trump may not have paid taxes on his personal income, but money he paid to his employees paid their income tax.    The people he purchased goods and services from paid income taxes.  It’s more important for Trump to pass along his money to employees and various vendors so they can pay taxes then to pay income taxes himself.

Hillary Debates Like a Girl

October 3, 2016

During the first presidential debate I initially wondered about Hillary Clinton’s debating style which didn’t seem very presidential.   She seemed to prefer personal attacks unrelated to presidential matters over a discussion about policy matters.   After thinking about the  debate for a few days I realized that her behavior reminded me of the way women are portrayed as arguing on television shows.

Clinton didn’t take the debate seriously.   Her red pant suit and perky demeanor are more appropriate for a party than a serious debate of the issues.

Donald Trump remained serious during the debate, but Clinton grinned whenever she found an opportunity to use one of her favorite catch phrases or made a personal attack on Trump.  As I was writing this statement I realized what some of her facial expressions remind me of child who looks for approval when she thinks she has said  something special.

Clinton’s “perkiness” is disturbing because she appears perky even when discussing serious subjects as if she doesn’t really understand the seriousness of the situation.

I’m a week older than Bill Clinton.  Those in our age group are alert to indications that others are possibly deteriorating mentally.  Hillary at times reminds me of those little old lady characters who are out of touch with reality.
