WOW! Trump won! Racism??

12 Nov

van 2

The knucklehead pictured above is Van Jones, a political expert for CNN. Once he realized Trump was going to win the election, he was absolutely apoplectic! He went off on a rant how the only way Trump could win was “RACISM”. He said whites were afraid of the progress people of color had made in the last 30 years. He called this election a Whitelash! He claimed this was the election of the angry white man. Well, he is partially right, there are a lot of angry people out here, not just whites but middle-class blacks and Hispanics too, and we saw in Trump an opportunity to throw a brick through the window of the Washington establishment. What are we angry about? Well, let’s list some of the things we are tired of. We are tired of our health insurance premiums and deductibles going up through the roof. We are tired of politicians promising one thing during the election, then once they get to Washington, doing nothing they promised,  just sticking their snouts in the feeding trough and getting fat on our tax dollars. We are tired of the “Elites” looking down their noses at us “dirt people” here in middle America. We are tired of the Washington establishment, whether they are Democrat, Republican, Hollywood, Academia, or Main Stream Media telling us what is best for us, whether we like it or not. We are tired of not being able to even express our opinion without being labeled a racist and being totally ignored. We are tired of our schools being run from Washington, and being nothing but liberal indoctrination facilities. We are tired of having the LGBT agenda shoved in our face every day. We are tired of the Justice Department blatantly showing one set of rules for the Elites and another set of rules for the rest of us. We are tired of seeing the race agitators like Black Lives Matter rioting in or streets with impunity, until it is not safe to go to any large town or city. We are tired of our borders being an open door, inviting all sorts of undesirables such as drug dealers, gang members, common criminals, and terrorist. We are tired of the Border Patrol being ordered to “Catch and Release” thousands of suspected robbers, rapists, drug dealers and murderers back on the streets. We are tired of being told we must let in thousands of refugees from the Middle East even though we know there are going to be many jihadists in their number. We are tired of the ruinous trade deals that have benefited the big business globalist, but left the American workers broken and without jobs. We are tired of our taxes going up, just to see the money wasted on lazy slackers who refuse to work. We are tired of being told we have to spend billions of dollars fighting “Climate Change” even though we know that is a scam and the money is just going into the pockets of the Elites. We are tired of liberal judges legislating from the bench, totally ignoring the Constitution to promote their own liberal social agenda. We are tired of the EPA handing out ridiculous and onerous regulations such as declaring that practically all water, even rain water, belongs to the government and will be regulated. Whew! I’m just getting started on my rant! Did I miss anything? I can write pages on each of the things I mentioned above, and I can think of many more. So, yes, Van Jones, we are angry, we are really angry!  You might say Donald Trump was our way of saying “I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Interesting times are coming my friends, and I am afraid it is likely to not be good. Keep prepping everyone!

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin Found Guilty

22 Feb

 

untitled

The conviction of Ray Nagin occurred on Feb 12 and I am just now writing about it. Why? Mainly because the main stream media buried this story deeply and hoped people wouldn’t find out about it. If you read the story, nowhere does it mention he was a Democratic Mayor. Again, why? Just another example of the way the media tries to protect it’s chosen party, the Democrats. If this had been a Republican Mayor convicted of corruption, the media would still be talking about this case everyday. I actually found better coverage of this conviction in the UK press than anywhere in the US outside of the New Orleans media! I am really surprised that this investigation even occurred, after all, it must just be RACISTS! Most of the time the politicians will all band together to block any of the cases from going forward, not to protect the accused, but to protect themselves. All of the politicians are doing exactly what Mr. Nagin did and they don’t want anyone looking too closely into their own corruption!

CNN) — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin faces prison with few of his former constituents shedding any tears for the man who led them through the biggest disaster in the city’s modern history.

The two-term mayor quit New Orleans after leaving office in 2010 and now lives in the Dallas suburbs. He swore off public life on his way out, and much of the city appeared ready to wash its hands of him after his Wednesday conviction on federal corruption charges.

“At one point or another, just about everybody voted for Nagin,” said Clancy DuBos, political editor of the New Orleans alternative weekly Gambit. “And we all got fooled.”

Nagin has four months before his scheduled sentencing June 11 — his 58th birthday. The most serious of the 20 counts on which he was convicted carry terms of up to 20 years, but most observers expect he’ll receive somewhere between 12 and 20, DuBos said.

 

Oliver Thomas, a former City Council president during Nagin’s administration, said the ex-mayor now “has an opportunity for reflection” and to take responsibility for his actions. Thomas speaks from a certain degree of experience, having served three years in federal prison in a 2007 bribery case.

“Everybody in political office should probably go to prison, just so you can come back to the people and humility,” said Thomas, who now hosts a radio show in New Orleans. “I’m tired of seeing gloating political people and then you see they have weaknesses, also … We got too many halo-shiners in the world.”

Thomas criticized the “bandwagon” he said was now cheering Nagin’s conviction, but added, “We all have to take responsibility. And when you’re a leader, especially an African-American leader, your integrity can’t be 99%. We have to be better.”

Federal prosecutors said Nagin was at the center of a kickback scheme that brought him more than $200,000 in bribes, plus personal services and free travel from businessmen seeking contracts and favorable treatment from the city. Several of those businessmen had already pleaded guilty, and they testified against the ex-mayor during the two-week trial.

Nagin maintained his innocence after Wednesday’s verdict, which made him New Orleans’ first mayor to be convicted of federal corruption charges. His defense was outgunned from the start, DuBos said.

Global Warming and Public Ignorance

15 Feb

I read this assertion in several places today.

The progressives and the Obama regime know that one in four Americans are so poorly educated by our Department of Education and so sufficiently distracted and disinterested as to not be aware of even the most basic scientific concept; that the Earth orbits the Sun.

That explains why a large number will mindlessly accept the empty claims of global warming causing severe cold weather even as they endure the consequences. It is painfully obvious that we have a lot of ignorant people in America and they seem to align themselves with the Democratic Party.

Maybe we need to have a short test before you are allowed to vote. For example, how many individual states comprise the United States Of America and what are the three branches of the Federal Government? If you can’t answer those questions correctly, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote! Just my humble opinion.

Heroin Addiction

11 Feb

PSH

Recently the news organizations were bombarding us with images of Philip Seymour Hoffman after his death from a heroin overdose. With all the things happening in this country and around the world the media chose to focus on this event. Tragic as it was, it was no more so than the hundreds of addicts who die each week from addictions. This is just another example of the “Bread And Circuses” routine the media and the politicians pull on us. Keep the masses entertained and their bellies full and they won’t pay attention to what is really going on around them! Many of the addicts use drugs because they feel so isolated from society there is nothing for them to do but to escape from reality no matter what the consequences may be. Then you take someone in Mr. Hoffman’s situation and you look at his life and see that he had everything going for him. Why would he do something so reckless as heroin? Who knows what demons he was battling inside his own soul. Anyway, I feel sorry for Mr. Hoffman and anyone else who has a serious addiction, I have a bit of a compulsive personality myself.

I don’t want to sound preachy, because I have been known to do some stupid things in my life, but at some point there has to be a line you don’t cross.herion

One of those lines to not cross is to take some unknown, untested powder you buy from some low-life nicknamed “Raw Dog” or “Switchblade” then melt that substance down and put it into a syringe and inject it into your veins? Yeah, right. I think if you do that you have lost all of your sensibilities and good judgment and you are very near the point of no return. But let’s pray for all the addicts out there that they may see the error of their ways before it is too late. Keep prepping everyone.

Government Shutdown

6 Oct

Some of my readers have asked why I haven’t commented on the government shutdown. I have decided it is a waste of my breath (and words of wisdom) to comment on politics. We are way past the point of voting our way out the problems this country is experiencing. The Democratic party and the Republican party are just two sides of the same coin, there is not a bit of difference in the politicians on either side of the aisle. All they care about is themselves, lining their own pockets and getting reelected. They all want to end up in the same place, only the Democrats go around the left side to get there and the Republicans go around the right side to get there. Don’t get me wrong, I am still going to vote and voice my opinion, but I realized after the last Presidential election that if the people of this country were willing to reelect someone like our current President that there was no hope for us to make any significant changes at the ballot box. The system is rigged in favor of the two parties to remain in power and maintain the Status Quo, that is why the Republicans are so outraged at the few Tea Party members who might actually want to change things. The old school entrenched Party members want the Tea Party type members to learn to just shut-up and go along with what the big-shots want and not rock the boat! This country is quickly heading down the toilet, the question is just how fast we are going to reach the bottom. My own personal opinion is the dollar will crash and be replaced with a “unified one world currency”, but that is just my opinion, take it for what it is worth. Anyway, I am going to just keep prepping, hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. Keep prepping everyone.

The White House Contacted Me!

24 Jun

I recently sent a form e-mail to the President expressing my concerns with the upcoming attacks on the second amendment via the gun control legislation being proposed in Congress. Well, the President fired off his own form letter full of the expected political obfuscation, double-speak, fuzzy backward logic, and just general BS. Take a moment to read it if you have a strong stomach!

The White House, Washington

Dear Swamp Dog:

Thank you for taking the time to write. I have heard from many Americans regarding firearms policy and gun violence in our Nation, and I appreciate your perspective. From Aurora to Newtown to the streets of Chicago, we have seen the devastating effects gun violence has on our American family. I join countless others in grieving for all those whose lives have been taken too soon by gun violence.

Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.

While reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm should not be a divisive one. Most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. Most also agree that if we took commonsense steps to curtail gun violence, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown. We will not be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing we can do to reduce gun violence—if even one life can be saved—then we have an obligation to try.

That is why I asked Vice President Joe Biden to identify concrete steps we can take to keep our children safe, help prevent mass shootings, and reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. He met with over 200 groups representing a broad cross-section of Americans and heard their best ideas. I have put forward a specific set of proposals based off of his efforts, and in the days ahead, I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality.

My plan gives law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. These tools include strengthening the background check system, helping schools hire more resource officers and counselors and develop emergency preparedness plans, and ensuring mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. And I directed the Centers for Disease Control to study the best ways to reduce gun violence—because it is critical that we understand the science behind this public health crisis. From improving mental health services to looking more closely at a culture that too often glorifies violence, we must leave no stone unturned when working to keep Americans safe.

As important as these steps are, they are not a substitute for action from Congress. To make a real and lasting difference, members of Congress must also act. As part of my comprehensive plan, I have called on them to pass some specific proposals right away. First, it is time to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. Second, Congress should renew the 10-round limit on magazines and reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban. We should get tougher on those who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals, and we should impose serious punishments on anyone who helps them do this.

These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people. But change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children.

Thank you, again, for writing. I encourage you to visit www.WhiteHouse.gov/NowIsTheTime to learn more about my Administration’s approach.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama

I’m 83 and tired.

11 Feb

This e-mail has been making the rounds supposedly attributed to Bill Cosby. Although as it turns out, he did not write it, I still like what the article says. Give it a read and see if you don’t agree with most if not all of it.

 

 

I’m 83. Except for brief period in the 50’s when I was doing my National

Service, I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious

health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly

40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my

income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as

though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who

don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take

the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy

to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I

can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and

daughters for their family “honor” of Muslims rioting over some slight

offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t

“believers” of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning

teenage rape victims to death for “adultery” of Muslims mutilating the

genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and

Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let

Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques

and Madrasa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand ,

UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to

fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other

Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global

warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help

support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ

rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses

or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all

parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful

mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting

caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and

actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination

or big-whatever for their problems.

I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and

early 20’s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making

themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not

going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for

my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not

on the way in.

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us

sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference.

” I’m 83 and I’m tired. If you don’t agree you are part of the problem!
