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.

How Could Hillary Be so Stupid?

September 28, 2016

I didn’t really think too much about how Hillary Clinton was dressed for the debate until a couple of hours ago.  Like most bachelors I don’t think much about the significance of  women’s clothing unless it’s kind of revealing.

I thought Hillary’s old lady type pantsuit looked vaguely inappropriate,  but didn’t recognize that red is not a good color for the wife of a sexual  predator to wear to what is essentially a job interview.   Red is a color long associated with prostitution dating back at least to the fall of Jericho when the prostitute Rahab hung a red cord on her house to let the Israelis know not to harm her or her family.    Areas where prostitutes are sometimes called “red light districts”  because railroad workers would leave their red lanterns outside while taking a break.

Many women, especially those of Hillary’s age,  seem to use the type of pantsuit Hillary wore like men use a t-shirt and jeans. I sometimes see women wearing such attire at Walmart.   I call her a attire a “pantsuit” because that is how it was described by one of the women helping with the broadcast    My first thought when I saw it was “why was Hillary wearing pajamas?” At the very least it looked like “comfort clothing” rather than something that indicated the person wearing it was serious about wanting a job.

Her clothing may be one reason I got the impression she was just there to have fun.  The happy expression she showed when she got recite one of her favorite catch phrases was almost childlike.  I previously published a post wondering if Hillary had Alzheimer’s.  This type of inappropriate behavior would be consistent with that hypothesis.

Is Hillary Taking “Happy Pills”?

September 27, 2016

The biggest difference  between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the first presidential debate  is that Trump took the debate seriously and Clinton was on a lark.  I vaguely remember her having an occasional serious expression on her face,  but my primary impression was of someone having a fun time at a party.  I have tried to convince myself that  she was overjoyed at being able to repeat one of her favorite cliches,  but at times it seemed like she was almost about  to giggle

I’m not a party animal, so the closest thing I have to observing someone who is “having a good time” is watching characters on television.  If I saw a tv character behaving like Hillary it would be because she was high on something.

How Severe Is Hillary’s Health Problem?

September 8, 2016

The request from New York Times technology columnist Farhad Manjoo that Google censor searches for information about Hillary Clinton’s health strongly implies  that Manjoo knows she suffers from some type of severe health problem.   So does the Huffington Post’s banning of David Seaman because of an article about Clinton’s health.

There would be no reason to censor health related searches about Clinton if her problem is something like Parkinson’s as rumors attributed to Secret Service agents suggest.   Rev. Billy Graham has Parkinson’s as did Pope John Paul II and various American political leaders and other celebrities.  Medication allows people with Parkinson’s to continue to function.

There would be no reason to censor health searches if Clinton has heart trouble.  President Dwight Eisenhower was reelected in 1956 even though he had had a heart attack in 1955.

Censorship would make sense if Hillary is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia.  Alzheimer’s can be difficult to diagnose because the individual symptoms can also occur normally.   Hillary’s desire to spend a large sum on Alzheimer’s research could be for personal reasons.

For example,  Alzheimer’s could have played a role in some of Hillary’s controversies.  Some of her actions such as the ones listed below,  are consistent with symptoms of Alheimer’s.

Poor judgement:  Her decision to leave American diplomats in Benghazi after an attack on the British ambassador’s motorcade involved poor judgement.   Alzheimer’s could also explain the poor judgeent shown in using a private email server.

Memory loss is the symptom most of us think of as being associated with Alzheimer’s:  Thus, Hillary’s inability to remember important facts about Benghazi and other events could be a symptom of Alzheimer’s.

Misplacing things:   Those lost emails could indicate Alzheimer’s.

Withdrawal from social situations: Hillary’s unwillingness to hold press conferences could indicate Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s can be difficult to diagnose in its early stages.   The above examples of Hillary’s behavior could indicate Alzheimer’s or could indicate normal conditions.   For example, her poor decisions could just indicate limited intelligence.

Russia Isn’t America’s Enemy

August 8, 2016

Hillery Clinton claims that Donald Trump cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons.   Actually, it’s Hillary Clinton and her supporters I don’t trust with nuclear weapons.   Based on comments made at the Democratic convention they still think Russia is our enemy.

Hillary’s preoccupation with nuclear weapons implies she thinks there is a possibility of a new cold war with Russia even though there would be  no reason for such a war.unless she created one

We need a president who recognizes that Russia is not our enemy.  The Cold War ended decades ago.

Russia is not our enemy.  Neither is the Democratic Republic of Vietnam or the People’s Republic of China.   There is no international communist conspiracy to take over the world.  The United States is even normalizing relations with Cuba.

Anti-Russian groups  misrepresent Russia as the villain in the Ukraine civil war  instead of recognizing that the real villain  is the  European Union and/or President Barack Obama.

The fact is that when Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych rejected a demand to turn control of Ukraine over to the European Union, a Nazi Germany like “fifth column” overthrew the legitimate government and replaced it with an EU puppet government.  There is disagreement about whether the EU or President Barack Obama directed the coup.  The West Europeans and the United States both have a history of such behavior.   The quick recognition of the rebel’s control by the EU means the EU was aware of the plot even if it didn’t order it.

The illegal change in government broke any contract between Ukraine and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.   The people of Crimea were free to become independent or seek an association with Russia.  Thus there is nothing wrong with Russia working with Crimea.

The anti-Russian attitudes expressed by some of the rebels created an understandable fear of  a Balkan type “ethnic cleansing” campaign against ethnic Russians.   Ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine recognized they were not wanted  and sought to separate from Ukraine.  Russia has been far more restrained in responding to this situation then the United States has been in the past.

The United States has invaded other countries for far less significant reasons.  The U.S. invasion of Libya could be used as justification for Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine.

Reactionary Justices Resurrect Plessy v. Ferguson Attitude

July 28, 2016

On June 27, in the worst ruling since Plessy v. Ferguson five white Supreme Court Justices told the State of Texas it had to ignore the 14th Amendment requirement to provide “equal protection of the laws”.

The ruling was even worse than Plessy. Plessy merely allowed states to enact Jim Crow segregation laws. Justice Stephen Breyer’s opinion in Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt requires the state of Texas to allow continued operation of Jane Crow health facilities. A Jane Crow facility provides health care to black women but doesn’t have to meet the same high standards as facilities that treat white men.

Abortion surgery involves the removal of a significant sized biomass from deep inside a woman’s body much like cancer surgery does. The Texas law requires facilities performing abortion surgery on women to meet standards for surgical facilities that treat white men. Women occasionally die from carelessly performed abortion surgery including Tanya Reaves who bled to death after an abortion at an unlicensed Jane Crow facility in Chicago or Cree Erwin who recently died in Battle Creek, Michigan, after an abortion at an as yet unidentified facility.

Justice Breyer’s reasoning is consistent with the type of reasoning used by justices in the late 19th Century. He falsely claims that the law places a burden on those seeking abortions. The law doesn’t restrict patients from seeking abortions. The law merely forces those organizations that want to get money from performing abortions to spend enough money to maximize patient safety. The law requires abortion facilities to function like 21st Century medical facilities instead of mid-20th Century abortion mills. The law doesn’t restrict anyone’s “right” to an abortion. The law merely forces organizations performing abortions to spend more money on patient safety even if that reduces the amount of money available for the salaries of doctors and patients.

Breyer’s reasoning is comparable to late 19th Century Court rulings that prevented states from protecting workers from predatory employers. The Court claimed that such laws interfered with workers’ freedom of contract.

The justices who agreed with Breyer are similar to the justices who allowed Jim Crow segregation laws to remain in effect for 60 years. The justices during the Jim Crow era simply ignored the fact that the facilities provided for blacks were inferior. I don’t know whether they intended to be racists, but for all practical purposes they were. I don’t know if the justices who overturned the Texas law which would have eliminated substandard Jane Crow facilities intend to be racists, but they are.

Wolves in Women’s Clothing

June 1, 2016

A recent “Charlotte Observer” editorial repeats  common ignorance about efforts to protect the sexual privacy of women.    “Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms – and vice versa – might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort – with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage – then realizing that it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”

The “Observer’s” editorial board apparently views the facts of life as they might be resented on  the “Brady Bunch” instead of on a cop show.   A woman has as much a right to be distressed if a male stranger exposes his genitals to her as a black man would if a white man showed him a hangman’s noose.

We human males are sexual predators by our animal nature.  Most of us learn when we are young that females have the right to decide if they want a physical relationship.  A man cannot knock a woman in the head with a club and drag her into his cave.  If he wants a physical relationship with a woman he must woo her with words, candy, flowers, etc.. Or, he can purchase a temporary relationship with a member of the world’s “oldest profession”.

Unfortunately, some men never learn this.   Like wolves they think any female is a potential sexual conquest.   These animals use their “junk” [to borrow David Letterman’s term] as a sexual assault weapon much like  others use a knife or a gun.  Doctors can sometimes  heal the physical scars caused by a knife or gun, but the psychological scars caused by a sexual assault can last a lifetime.    A man who shows his junk to a woman who hasn’t agreed to a physical relationship is threatening her well being  just like someone who threatens her with a knife or gun.

Women  cannot read men’s minds.  A woman in a restroom has no way of knowing in  advance if a man dressed as a woman is a harmless transsexual or a vicious wolf in women’s clothing.

Contrary to the opinion   to the opinion of the “Observer” editorial, differences in skin color are not the same as sexual differences.   A white person cannot get black skin by touching a black person, but a man can force his DNA into a woman and possibly get her  pregnant.
