The above table shows a very important statistic. It shows nationally that Biden hiding in his basement is ahead of Trump, who is working his ass off, but still Biden leads by margin of 51/45. One might despair thinking maybe that will stick. Don’t despair, there is an age old dictum in politics and that is: People vote “FOR candidates, NOT against candidates” Time immemorial, people voting against another candidate, tend not to vote as they are not enthusiastic about their vote. That said Trump is in fine shape as 66% of people choosing Trump are enthusiastic versus only 33% for Biden. Biden shows a whopping 66% of his voters are NOT voting for him, but against Trump. Now you get it? Trump’s people are gonna vote enthusiastically for the candidate and are more likely to turn out on election day.
I did and am 100% sold on Trump. Biden stands for nothing that is “RED, WHITE & BLUE”. Trump on the other hand oozes patriotism. I listened carefully and could not find a single solitary issue that I disagreed. He clearly knows the heart and soul of this Country, and while from time to time we falter, it’s not for lack of trying. Trump never gives up and sticks to his guns… literally and figuratively.
No I can’t be swayed by a single speech, but I look at what the man has accomplished with the dastardly Pelosi crew dragging him down with witch hunts, and hoaxes and non stop harassment and I admire Trump even further.
Frankly at 74, Trump has more vigor, stamina and desire than men 20 years younger. Yes I am a big fan of his abilities physically to endure the bullshit the desperate Democrats spew like snake venom.
I pray to god, that the majority of Americans see what I see. I see a man at the top of his game espousing all American values, all American virtues and all American policies to make this Country even greater. God Bless Donald Trump. Biden can go to hell he is a fraud without any American values or policies. Enough said.
The Covid 19 economic shutdown destroyed my businesses. That said, I still never thought I would say “thank you” to the Federal Government. But were it not for the Federal Government’s stimulus check, extended unemployment benefits and the additional $600/week unemployment benefits I could not have survived. And while I know our debt bomb has grown at least $3,000,000,000,000,000, Trump had no choice. The economy simply had to have an infusion of cash.
Now let me say “piss on Illinois”. This State has to be among the worst States by every measure. First they were pathetically slow at getting the Federal Government’s unemployment money out to citizens in dire need. All this State had to do was pass out the cash… and they couldn’t even do that on a timely basis. But I think what pisses me off the most is that checks were 48 hours late any time there was a holiday.
Let me explain. Memorial Day was Monday the 26th of May and was a holiday for most everyone in State Government. For me, life and bills go on with or without me regardless of holidays. That means I still have to pay the mortgage and groceries and on and on she goes. In order to do that money has to arrive in my bank account on certain dates or I miss bills. Not unusual…. just like everyone else in this Country for the most part.
Well Wednesday the 28th comes along which is my day for my Federal money and much to my surprise NOTHING. Oh shit something has happened I thought. Now what? I suppose Illinois has some issue preventing them from getting the checks out.
Guess what? Illinois did have an issue. Turns out because Monday the 26th was a holiday, and the poor pitiful way overpaid government workers were off, they didn’t send checks out for 48 hours. I mean it’s only reasonable to think that since workers had Monday off, that the checks would be delayed. We peons in the masses should be happy we are even getting checks is seemingly the mantra.
Well I am here to tell you government dweebs, there’s absolutely no excuse for my check to go out 48 hours late. I bet your fuckin check didn’t go out 48 hours late. Why would you think it’s okay for mine to be late. If you have to work 24 hours a day until you are caught up because you took one holiday out of your egregious 15 holidays, that’s the price you pay to be MY employee. You need to learn who is really paying your bills and it’s not the State of Illinois.
The utter stupidity of the commie libs is truly beyond my comprehension. They want everyone in the United States to use mail-in paper ballots. As I write this blog Perez the DNC chairman is on TV blasting Trump for wanting to stay with our current system of voting. He is claiming having people go to a voting booth in November would cause a resurgence of COVID19. Therefore, we should go with a mail-in system.
FRAUD is my concern and even more as you read my complete blog. But think about it… how do you prevent fraud unless some type of security code is used. The code and ballot would be sent to addresses of all Americancitizens to the extent they know addresses and then their mail-in ballot would be sent to a processing center. This might work I suppose.
But I think the commie libs have another plan in mind. I would suggest the commie libs will try to stretch the system so that all residents get paper ballots for mail-in. So the government would now mail to every address in the U.S. By the way for you unfamiliar with the commie lib Democrat code, “resident” is just code for an illegal alien. Last time I checked illegals were not allowed to vote. They are not even supposed to be here. WTF are they thinking?
Well… they are thinking that if they can get residents to vote, they can become a permanent majority in this Country as there are 22 million illegal aliens in this Country. Illegals undoubtedly will vote Democrat. Why Democrat? Democrats have supported open borders, sanctuary cities, voting rights for residents, healthcare for illegals and are against the Trump wall. So, the Democrats are pandering and sucking-up to illegals meanwhile ignoring their fellow Americans. And if you are reading this you know I am speaking the truth.
And to expand on this pandering point, Democrats say utterly stupid stuff like: “The wall is immoral” (Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and 3rd in line to be President). This is music to the ear of the illegal alien. But how can a wall be “immoral”?
Immorality is the lack of morals and often associated with lack of ethics and values. If the U.S. decides to put up a wall, the only values to be considered are Ours, not illegals. So far as I can tell there is nothing immoral from the U.S.’ standpoint. A wall is merely forcing an orderly methodology to our immigration system by causing people to come to this Country through proper channels. This has been the case since the early founding of this Country except in the last 50 years.
My ancestors came here in the late 1700’s from Ireland. They went through Customs in Philadelphia. They gave their full name, family members and relationships, Country of origin and were checked for diseases. It was an orderly process. They didn’t storm the borders to live here without adhering to U.S. laws. They followed the laws and immigrated legally. They moved west to open land in Texas and Indiana. My ancestors would be outraged that people would come here illegally. A wall will stop them, but a mail-in ballot could open the door permanently as illegals getting the vote will open the border to all.
From this day forward, I hope I never hear a partisan hack politician say the word “bi-partisan” again. We all know they really mean “partisan”. If I do hear the word, I am going to literally lose my voice. See when I hear the word, I have this uncontrollable tendency to yell “bullshit” which is straining my vocal cordage.
That said, it’s no secret I am a conservative, but I also believe I am fair and objective. To me, objectivity is part of being a conservative as conservatives tend to view the world logically and with lesser emotion than liberals.
I don’t know about you, but I hear Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer both left-leaning Democrats constantly using this word and it is vile. They know it is disingenuous. I think I will submit to URBAN DICTIONARY a new meaning for “bipartisan”. It has come to stand for people that are selfish, self-serving, deceitful and dishonest. (DOUBLE S & DOUBLE D). These people know when they say this word… and for sake of argument we’ll call it the “B-word”… that lies and disinformation are about to follow.
Yes I am keenly aware the use of this word is not exclusive to liberals, conservatives use the B-word too. But in my gut, I believe there is more truth coming from a conservative using the B-word than when a liberal uses the word. Deductive reasoning is how I can say this. For no other reasons except for Double S & D, would anyone purposely pursue the policies of democrats and the liberal left. Their policies are anti-american starting with liberal’s desire to give the vote to illegals along with free health-care, welfare, free education, social security, and all of our constitutional rights.
But let’s dig deeper shall we? Liberals believe solemnly that the “ends justify the means”. For example, liberals believe illegal aliens should be afforded rights here in America because they have suffered in their home Country; and further, they represent a huge Democrat voting block. See the sinister underlining here. Liberals sow the seeds of deception by starting with a disingenuous sob story about other’s suffering when in reality they could care less. What they really want is their vote. And as they are spreading the manure of the B-word, they will preach the gospel of seeking a “bi-partisan” solution to the illegal alien problem. In reality they are fighting any solution except “open borders” and “total amnesty”. And by undermining a solution and jamming the gears of progress, oddly enough they appear sympathetic to the illegal’s plight. Thus the liberal is garnering the illegal’s vote when someday they are excused for being here illegally. But to me they are transparent in their motives.
I heard it said to understand those seeking power: “follow the money”. That’s exactly what I did to deduce that liberals are jockeying for open borders because they need more votes. More votes is more power and more power leads to more money. And nowhere does the word “bi-partisan” and a liberal’s actions ever meet.
Admittedly I am unable to erase all bias from my viewpoint, but tell me if my characterization of the illegal alien problem isn’t “right-on”? And tell me that the word “bi-partisan” is ever used by a politician genuinely?
I am thoroughly pissed off and wonder how I am going to survive my time alone in the house under “shelter in place” rules in Illinois. Let me share some thoughts.
To be personal, I am a Sagittarius and as such we tend to think “big picture”. I have often pondered if there would come a day in my lifetime when a germ of some sort would spring to life and invade the world. It always seemed logical to me that at some point something… maybe a virus, but something would come along and wreak havoc on the world’s human population. And if not a virus maybe a bacteria; we hear all the time that certain bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics. After all, there have always been events throughout time that have ravaged the creatures that inhabited the Earth.
That time has come, much to my dismay and the dismay of billions around the globe. A Chinese virus code named COVID19 is among us and it is causing catastrophic problems in the world today. You cannot see it, smell it or hear it, but make no mistake it is here. China caused the outbreak, but the rest of the world is suffering from their ineptness. Deaths in Europe have surpassed those in China where this virus could have been contained.
That being said, let me say despite the potential for colossal numbers of deaths in the United States, we seem to be handling things pretty well as I write this blog on this day 20th day in March 2020. But the United States is handling it by shutting down. The engine of the economy is running out of gas as people are told to go home from work to hide out at home. Metaphorically, the lights are slowly dimming as the days pass and the infections steadily increase. In my imagination I picture a large automotive plant off in the distance and eerily the lights in the plant are orange like a sunset creating a sense of pending doom as I gaze upon it.
Doom is just one emotion. Many other words are being felt as everyone in the world is now aware of COVID19. And we are all experiencing some degree of hardship. I have been sequestered at home now since the beginning of March, not because I fear the virus, but because the “lights are dimming”. Stores are empty, restaurants are empty, and overall businesses are at half mast. We are literally shutting down as a Country. Only essential personnel are supposed to be out and about.
No doubt as you have been reading you have been asking why? Why am I so pissed for lack of a less coarse term? I am pissed because this could all have been avoided. My sequestration could have been avoided, my lack of funds to pay my bills due to shutdowns could have been avoided and most importantly the deaths of thousands could have been avoided. It pains me terribly to hear about an American family of 12 or so, losing 4 to the virus and of the remaining 8 are infected. The agony this family is experiencing cannot be put into words. And I repeat it again, this could all have been avoided.
China knew in very early December maybe even November they had a serious virus in their midst. But as with all totalitarian governments, they chose to keep it secreted within their Country in this case the Wuhan province. Anyone talking publicly about the virus would be immediately silenced. What that means I don’t know except that person disappears… death by another means.
When the Chinese virus arrived on our shores, it didn’t immediately cause chaos. Trump responded in accordance with what was happening on the ground largely on the west coast. His initial effort was to stop travel from China to the United States in January. But within just a few weeks, the virus started spreading across the U.S. and spreading fast. And Trump was just assembling a team to combat the virus. Trump was crucified in the media both right and left leaning media for not acting quicker. Personally I felt this torture was unjust. We are in uncharted waters. We don’t have a blueprint. He did what he thought was best. He didn’t for malicious reasons start slower than maybe he should have in building a defense against this virus. He did what he thought best and frankly part of his reasoning was to prevent widespread panic I’m sure.
As I sit here today, Trump seems to be getting things under control despite the infections continuing to rise. We have a population of 329 million people and today (update) 24,000 are known to be infected. That is 0.0729% of our population to give us perspective. So things are not out of control on Trump’s watch. That said, he has even gotten accolades from New York’s and California’s governors which is unprecedented. There suddenly seems to finally be a sense of cooperation between the Democrats and the Republicans.
It’s refreshing to see this change and yet 3 months ago impeachment trials were underway. Democrats were aggressively and egregiously pursing Trump for things of no consequence or true significance in the totality of government workings. My assessment is that Trump did nothing out of the ordinary. In any event, don’tA possible distraction for Trump wouldn’t you say and a blight on the house of Nancy Pelosi. How dare her.
I have rambled more than usual, but my thoughts are still collecting on this viral situation. I am pissed at the Chinese mostly. And their mishandling of COVID19 is causing me serious angst as I sit here with little to do; and further, it may cause a meltdown of my finances as my income has not arrived in the mail as usual. Of course my pain is insignificant compared to those that have lost a dearly loved one, but my point is that every American is being impacted in some way. Some more than others, but we all are suffering. And the tunnel we’ve entered has no light.
