Dear Chicken Little, you are wrong my friend.

Posted on November 13, 2019

A little note to the Climate Alarmist Movement. And why we didn’t shoot all the horses when the Model T rolled out.     My Twitter discussion started with an NBC article. The article purported that Hurricane’s are more damaging now than they were 100 years ago. You know, back when satellites where powered by horses, and getting them into orbit involved ginormous sling shots. I had to reply. My reply had to be snarky. Because the idiocy of the article demanded it. An apples to avocados comparison. One major problem with the Climate Change Alarmist Culture is depending upon historical data and turning it into scientific data. It’s a wonderful idea, but it just doesn’t quite work out the way you like. Like…

Boomer: The slur that isn’t.

Posted on October 30, 2019

  I was called a Boomer today. A comment I thought was a little strange. For one, I am a Baby Boomer. And two…it was used as an insult.   I wasn’t insulted.   Yet the person I was trying to have a discussion with on Twitter, about Socialism, called me a Boomer as an insult. I think they need to work on their repertoire of insults. Insults are generally that last ditch effort to inject into a conversation a stinging blow, to silence the conversation, and thus, by it’s very nature, win the argument by ending it. That rarely works. Others in the conversation admonished me (and my generation) for screwing up the world. We’ve caused more harm than Genghis Khan it seems.…

Dear Democratic-Socialist, nothing is free, not even the air you breath.

Posted on October 25, 2019

  I like free stuff, don’t you? If I am walking through a store and they are offering samples, I do sample. Especially cheese. Seems that free stuff is the trend nowadays. Free Healthcare, free College, free housing, free…well about everything. It is the promise of the Democratic-Socialist and the Democratic candidates (barring a couple). Of course they don’t really mean it is free, what they mean is they are going to take from others to make it free for you. You can go to college and get that degree in Holistic Underwater Basket Weaving and it will be paid for by those rich jerks. And as we all know, Holistic Underwater Basket Weavers are in high demand. They want to make sure you…

I have a serious problem with the Ukrainian President.

Posted on September 26, 2019

  Ben Shapiro said it best in a Tweet yesterday. It really depends on your political point of view that determines how you see the transcript of the phone conversation between President Trump, and President Zelensky of the Ukraine. (Why yes, yes I did paraphrase Ben.) Well, that is if you see the transcript as what was actually said. Because, it wasn’t Verbatim.   Verbatim: in exactly the same words as were used originally.   See, everyone jumped all over that. It was in a tagline that was put on the copy of the transcript released. If you read the tagline in context, you would know it was an ‘out’ for the memo takers. Those four eyed pencil pushing translators that jot down every…

Tips for being a Modern Day Racist.

Posted on July 14, 2019

    1.) Everyone is a racist. They just haven’t accepted it yet. 2.) When you find you are losing the argument, call them a racists, they will settle down and leave the argument. You can claim victory over the racist jerk. 3.) All people that fall on the Right Hand of the above scale are inherently racists. They really can’t help it you know. It’s a genetic disorder that will most likely never be fixed. 4.) All people that fall on the Left Hand of the above scale can not be racist. They have the opposite genetic disorder. And yeah, it will most likely never be fixed. 5.) Political viewpoint is a determining factor in racism. 6.) When in doubt, call the other…

The Democrats Dilemma.

Posted on May 31, 2019

  All is not well in the House of Representatives. Stirrings, murmurs, whispers are circulating the halls, the bathrooms, dare say I? The Gymnasium. The talk is whether to go ahead and Impeach the 45th President, Donald J. Trump for obstructing of justice. To do what is right for the American people, and ultimately, as their civic duty as Representatives. Unfortunately, that is not how it is going, instead? Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and every Cable, Newspaper and News Media outlet is working overtime to shove the impeachment narrative down our throats. Either for or against. And the outcome of this? Well as Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke said in his speech last night…wait? Did he give a speech last night? You know, I’m not…

Donald Trump…the guy at the end of the bar.

Posted on May 28, 2019

  Donny sits at the end of the bar. I’ve seen Donny around for years, usually sipping on his soft drink, maybe ordering a burger, Donny always has something to say. It’s best to ignore Donny, but he rarely ignores you. Some people like to argue with him, but those poor fools, well, Donny tends to get the better of them. “Yeah, hey Don, what do you know about politics? Huh? You’re just a real estate guy!” One patron will chuckle at him. Donny bobs his head, finishes his bite of his burger and calmly says. “You ever put up a garage at your house? Remember all the red tape you went though? Try putting up a hundred million dollar building in NYC, then…
