Blocking Roadways is Counterproductive

If you want to protest, go ahead.  It’s American.  Do it peacefully or face the consequences.  Unfortunately for law abiding folks, the consequences of last night’s, and maybe tonight’s, “protests” may go unpunished.

As I write this I see on the local L.A. news “protesters” marching on, and stopping, the 101 freeway.

Mow ‘em down.  That’s not protest, that’s stupidity.

Protest if you will but don’t interfere with others just trying to live their lives.  I probably wouldn’t vote to convict someone who, slowly, drove through the crowd.  If they’re dumb enough to not get out of the way of slow moving vehicles, well, call it Darwinism.

The motorists don’t know what the mob may do.  I still see the image of Reginald Denny being brutalized in the aftermath of the Rodney King cop trial.  Here’s a guy just trying to do his job, driving his truck, and the next thing he knows, he’s getting pulled from the truck and getting hit with a cinder block to the head.  And “Football” (was that his street name?  Damien something?) rejoicing over a battered white guy.

But was he racist?  Pick your name, Reginald or Football.

The cops are damned if they do, damned if they don’t enforce our laws and try to clear out the “protesters” or, gasp, actually have a confrontation with someone who wants to burn or destroy some innocents property or person.

Remember the movie “Soylent Green”?  They had some nasty, yet useful, scooper trucks picking up the mobs.  We need some of those scoopers now.  Block a roadway?  Get scooped.  Loot?  Get shot dead.  Protest peacefully?  Fine.

Grand Jury: No Indictment

But, the fed investigation is still in progress.  Darren Wilson, the cop who struggled with and shot Michael Brown, could still be sacrificed on the PC altar.

We don’t know all the facts.  The Grand Jury heard them.  Saw the evidence.  Didn’t think the use of force that led to death merited an indictment.  That’s how the system works.  Are the nine whites and three blacks on the GJ racist?  Was the vote count for no indictment 9-3?  We don’t know.

What we do know is that Ferguson, Mo. erupted last night.  Also reports of “protests” in Philly, New York, L.A., and Oakland.

Watching Fox news it was interesting, and sad, to see the split screen with B-HO on one side, appealing for calm, watching the scroll reading that the Brown family was disappointed in the verdict but wanted people to stay calm and peaceful, and the other side of the split watching storefront windows being smashed and “protesters” running amok.

Black Friday shopping came early in Ferguson as the looting began.  Multiple shots fired.  Fires.  Tear gas.  Mayhem.

Is that the Michael Brown legacy?  Probably.  What about Darren Wilson?  Just a cop doing his job and now has to live with this mess.  Always having to look over his shoulder.  His life is probably ruined.

Who’s at fault for this madness?  The Brown supporters say it’s Wilson.  From what the prosecutor said in his statement last night, based on what the GJ found, the fault lies with Brown.

Brown robbed the store of some Swisher Sweets and then pushed and otherwise intimidated the store keeper.  He and his buddy were walking down the middle of the street when encountered by Wilson.  That’s pretty brazen, and not very bright.  After you rob someone you don’t parade down the street.  You get out of sight.  But, a stoned criminal isn’t always a smart criminal.

Brown fit the description of the robber.  Wilson was duty bound to investigate.  A struggle ensued and led to the death of Brown.  How is that Wilson’s fault?  It isn’t.

Michael Brown’s bad choices are the reason he’s dead, his family is grieving, and Ferguson is on fire.

Do the “protesters” really care about Brown or did they use the situation to blow off steam and grab some free goodies?

This didn’t have to be a racial thing.  Would a black cop have done the same thing in this situation?  Almost certainly.  If Brown was white, regardless of skin color of the cop, and acted the same way, would the situation and outcome be any different?  Doubtful.

Thank goodness B-HO brought us to this post racial era.

Let truth reign.  Hope and pray things settle down.  Nobody needs this mess.

BHO’s Genius in Picking Biden as His Veep…

…and the Republican’s wussiness in not pushing impeachment.

If BHO was impeached, Biden would be prez.  Yikes.  From the frying pan into the fire.  From stink to fecal matter.

America would be a laughing stock with foot-in-mouth Biden at the helm.  Guess what America:  We are a laughing stock with BHO and his bad policies.

Digression:  I’m not a racist for disagreeing with BHO’s policies.  I’m a Constitutionalist.  I’m a Christian.  I believe our Founders were genius with what they set up for us. 

Digression two:  Slavery is wrong.  I don’t want to discuss that slavery was allowed in our Constitution.  Read “American History in Black and White” by David Barton.  Great man Frederick Douglas deemed our Constitution non-racist.

Back to Biden as Veep.  If BHO was impeached and Biden became prez it appears the Republicans would be afraid of him.  That’s the wussiness I spoke of earlier.  BHO, and his fellow Dems, are walking all over the Republicans.  And they’re afraid of Biden?  They could slap him silly if they had the huevos of the Founders.

But noooooo, the Republicans keep making excuses.  It’s pathetic and telling.  Harry Reid is stopping our bills.  Eric Holder won’t answer his charges so Issa can’t move forward with the Fast and Furious investigation.  Lois Lerner can’t find her emails.  Benghazi?  “What difference does it make?”  That quote from Hillary.  I shudder to think of her as our next president.

And the Republicans come up with so many excuses why they aren’t going after un-Constitutional, un-American, un-Judeo-Christian attacks on our country, from the inside.  From the inside!

Democrats are leading us down the path to hell.  So are Republicans.  The Republicans are just doing it at a slower pace.  But, they’re both doing it!

Are they just interested in getting votes?  Keeping their jobs long enough to get that fat lifetime pension?

Does anyone, in either party, still care about us, the people?  Will the party of Lincoln and Reagan do the right thing?  Regardless of polls and paychecks?  Or will they all refer to us, as Gruber did, as stupid?

Don’t be stupid.  Do what’s right for America.  In my previous post I said I couldn’t necessarily disagree with Gruber that we’re stupid.  We elected BHO twice.  Heck, Al Franken is in the Senate!  Although, he may be there with some “found” votes.  (Sarcasm and sadness intended.)

If the only reason the Republicans aren’t pushing for impeachment is because Biden would become president isn’t good enough for me.  I go back to the Republicans being wussies and not standing on firm moral and legal ground and, instead, standing on quicksand reading polls and protecting their own backsides.

Democrat or Republican, stand up for what you believe.  Be proud of it.  We’ll disagree but if it’s your belief, stand by it.  Don’t waffle with the polls.

Conviction of beliefs.  What a concept.

Gruber is a Goober, or You Call That Transparency?

BHO roared into the office of the presidency promising a post racial society and the most transparent administration in history.

Should I pause until the laughter dies down?

Jonathan Gruber, architect of omamacare, is caught unapologetically calling the American voter “Stupid.”  I don’t think I can find fault with that statement.  The American voter elected BHO, Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, Boxer, Schumer… the list goes on.  Look at the sad state of our country.  How smart are we?

Goober, I mean Gruber, also stated, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage.”  What?  I thought this admin was going to be the most transparent ever.  Looking pretty opaque at this point.  Clear as mud.

“We have to pass it to see what’s in it.”  A brilliant remark by Pelosi.  Hard to believe people still take her seriously.  Stupid Americans.  Politicians, most of them, are American.  Stupid politicians.

The new Republican congress now has the opportunity to reverse this horrible legislation.  Will they?  Don’t hold your breath.  It would be the right thing to do but they may come up with some lame excuse why their hands are tied.

Both parties are untrustworthy. 

The right thing for the country would be a return to free market insurance.  Let insurance companies cross state lines.  Get rid of that 2,000+ page behemoth of opaque, bad legislation.

Hey Republicans, you got the ball, run with it.  This may be our last hope of returning to our Constitutional Republic and ending the slide into socialism/communism.  A free market republic has a chance.  Socialism always collapses in on itself when the takers run out of other people’s money.  Then we all die, or wish we would.

The ACA, omamacare, needs to die so that we may live.

Republican Gains Nationwide, California is Lost

The morning news brought reports of national Republican gains after yesterday’s elections.  After years of Dirty Harry Reid blocking House bills something may now start moving.  Could the constipated congress move again?

Now’s the time for the Republicans to quit whining and get something accomplished.  They’ve been called the party of “NO” but how much of that was Reid’s Senate blockage of bills?  It’s time to find out.  Will they step up for We the People or continue to be wussies?

BHO’s policies aren’t working.  Or are they working too slowly for our gimme it now, instant gratification society?  Nope, they’re not working, just like too many Americans.  The unemployment numbers are skewed due to the fact that if people get discouraged and quit looking for work they’re no longer counted as unemployed.  Bingo, unemployment rates drop.  Fuzzy math.

Scandal, malaise, lousy economy, Eric Holder walking free, Pelosi is actually taken seriously by some, but if we disagree with the great and powerful BHO we’re called racists.

Great, no argument or rebuttal, just name call.  It’s amazing more states aren’t talking secession.  Wouldn’t that be the grown up version of, “I’m taking my ball and going home?”

So the weight of the world is now on the shoulders of  the Republicans.  Return us to the Judeo-Christian Constitutional Republic we were meant to be or the entire nation will look like California.

California, a Titanic state of smiling Democrats telling us all is well, don’t worry about the iceberg.  California’s broke, literally, figuratively,  and financially.

And the voters re-elect Governor Moonbeam Brown.  Neel Kashkari ran a horrible campaign.  His website was pathetic.  His TV ad with a drowning kid was ill advised.  Not a top notch Republican to run against an entrenched Democrat like Brown.

Democrats won up and down the state.  More businesses, big and small, move out to more welcoming places, like Texas.  But the great and exalted leaders will still push their insane agendas; push them until we all go over the cliff and wonder, stupidly, what went wrong.

Riverside county, at last look, still voted Republican.  No wonder some want to break up the state into two or more entities.

The city of Murrieta looks to have re-elected Mayor/Councilman Alan Long.  You may remember him as being an outspoken opponent of BHO’s policy of spreading illegal aliens around the country.  He didn’t want them at his city’s under-equipped Border Patrol station.  More recently he’s been in the news for his DUI arrest after crashing into a carload of teenage cheerleaders.  He resigned but kept in the running for re-election.  If convicted and sent to prison will he telecommute?

OK, nationally Republicans look to have the reins, for the moment.  Don’t blow it.  After a great Tea Party victory last time don’t make us ask, “What have you done for our country lately?”  You could be the last hope we have of righting this listing ship we call the U.S.A.
