ABC Republican Debate, 2/6/16

A couple of thoughts on tonight’s GOP debate:

On the subject of illegal aliens:

Too many politicians worry we may be breaking up families if we  deport mom and dad and leave Jr. here to fend for himself.  Jr. wouldn’t be here if mom and dad didn’t break the law to come here.

But I can understand their compassion… or is it pandering for votes?  It’s so hard to tell nowadays, with either party.

Someone needs to turn the question back.  It’s not our horrible meanness that wants to deport illegals.  I’m thinking of the folks who are trying to gain entry into the USA by legal means.  They’re going through serious bureaucracy/red tape to try to get here.  LEGALLY!

Why should we bend over to the line cutters?  When you’re in line at the movie theater or grocery store and someone tries to cut in front of you do you take it?  Doubtful, but if you do, I must ask why?

Line jumping is selfish.

I’ve cut cable so I streamed the debate online on ABC’s website.  I found it completely rude that they cut into the debate for some energy commercial right in the middle of questions, answers, and Kasich’s closing statement.  The same commercial at least five times throughout the debate?!?!

That’s just rude.  Does the msm do this during the democrats debates?  I wouldn’t know because I don’t watch them.  I know I’m not voting for criminal Hillary or commie Bernie.

Donald Trump, Michael Moore, The Kelly File

Notes while watching “The Kelly File” on FNC:

Hey Donald, refusing to show up for Thursday’s debate on Fox just ‘cuz Miss Megyn is moderating shows you to be a wimpy, whiny, spoiled lil rich kid.  You were on my slate of people who I would possibly vote for; now, you’re gone.

American politics has always been about debate and compromise.  If you insist on refusing this debate you show what a little person you are.

However, that being said, I live in California and no Republican, even if in name only, will be elected from this bastion of liberal garbage.  How in the world did Reagan do it?

You find the answer to that question and you may have a chance.

Michael Moore is still looking and sounding like he’s on drugs or spiked Kool-Ade of some sort.  Megyn better have an escort to her car.  He’s just creepy.

Without Trump we may have a more coherent debate on Thursday.

Donald may make a good president in that the USA is really just a giant corporation; he knows how to run corps.  But his boisterous, thin skinned temper tantrums may make it difficult to trust him with the big red button.  No, that’s not the “That was Easy” Staples button, but the nuclear codes.

He may treat both buttons the same.  Some foreign boss ticks him off?  Bang.  Mushroom cloud, no more foreign boss, and Donny reclining with a cigar and Cognac saying, “That was easy.”

I’m not sure who I’ll be voting for.  You can be sure it won’t be a Clinton.  Really, she’s still not in jail?  Or Sanders.  An avowed socialist and he has tons of traction?  Traction mostly from the young.  Can we forgive them?  If they grow up and realize the folly of their thoughts, then maybe.

Remember when Bill was running for his 2nd term?  (I think it was his 2nd term.  Was it his 1st?  Tell me.)  The motto was “It’s the economy, stupid.”

How’s the economy now?  Are you better off now than you were 7, 8, 9, years ago?

And b-ho wants to bring in more foreigners, muslim foreigners, to take more American jobs.

And that Chobani yogurt guy?  He’s pushing for it, too.  Uh, he’s Turkish-American.  Where are his loyalties?  His bottom line?  Profits over patriotism?

This country, a once great country, is being steered in the wrong direction.  Greatness is diminishing.

Diminishing at a speed that is increasing.

United we stand.  Divided we fall.

We’ve been divided into factions for far too long.

Remember the Constitution.  Legalize same.

And pray to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Hey b-ho, Shut Up

A sicko shoots many people at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, killing at least 13.  The bodies are still warm and our fearless leader, b-ho, comes on TV in typical anti-gun, anti-freedom, knee-jerk fashion spouting about the need for ”common sense” gun laws.

We have a lot, tens of thousands of gun laws, are none of those “common sense”?

The school is a gun free zone.  The shooter brought a gun on campus.  Law broken.

Murder is illegal.  The shooter killed.  Law broken.

Attempted murder is illegal.  The shooter tried to kill even more than he did.  Law broken.

How many more laws need to be enacted?  How many more freedoms need to be taken away from the law abiding citizenry?  How many before the big government, big brother liberals realize that the law abiding are not wont to break the law?  Sick individuals and criminals care not for any rule or regulation.

Unfortunately, this type of thing will happen in a “free” society.  Unless we’re all monitored 24/7, sickos and terrorists are going to do bad things.

I know early reports are often inaccurate and incomplete but why is it taking so long to learn more about the shooter?  A 20 year old male is all we’ve got as of this writing.  Is it true the shooter was asking the religion of his victims?

So many questions.  Garden variety white boy that snapped and went on a shooting spree or terrorist attack?

May God bless and comfort the victims, their families, the first responders, and all affected by this horrific incident.

Jeb!

John Ellis Bush is officially running for President of the United States.

On the TV news I heard a lot of talking heads talking about his logo.  Jeb!  Hmmmm, no mention of the Bush name.  Is he trying to distance himself from the so-called “dynasty”?  Did “W” try to distance himself?

Could it be that “Jeb” is just short for John Ellis Bush?

And what of Hillary’s logo?  An arrow?  Could that be akin to the male symbol ♂?  Just askin’.

Not sure who I’m supporting at this point but it sure as shootin’ ain’t Hillary.

Remember when b-ho was running for the first time?  People were saying things like, “Wow, wouldn’t it be amazing to have our first black president?”

Is that any way to elect a world leader?  No!  Maybe a Junior high Prez, but not our president.

Now, people are saying, “Wow, wouldn’t it be amazing to have our first female president?”

No, it wouldn’t, if it’s Hillary.  It’d be horrible.  What the heck are you people thinking?  Are you all on drugs?

By the same reasoning, shouldn’t we be saying, “Wow, wouldn’t it be amazing and cool to have our first president who is the brother of another president and both brothers were the son of a president?”

Wow, wouldn’t it be awesome if we elected a president, congress, state legislature, county representatives, city councils who actually believed in the Constitution?

Keep dreaming.

Bad Neighbors and CPS, a Toxic Combination

This article should raise your BP.

What kind of “neighbor” does this?  I’m old, but not that old, and back in the day neighbors, more or less, watched out for each other and each other’s kids.  That was good and bad.  We could be punished at school, then when a neighbor mom heard about it, then when our parents heard about it.

But nobody called the government into anything.  Wouldn’t even think of such a thing.

So a kid’s folks are detained for an hour and a half and he amuses himself in his yard while he waits their return.  I don’t know the story of the neighbor and their relationship with the kid, and the kid’s family, but it seems excessive to call in the government if you look out your window and see an 11 year old playing basketball in his yard.

Typical nosy neighbor Gladys Kravitz stuff from the old Bewitched TV series (1964-1971?).

For being delayed in traffic and weather this 11 year olds parents are charged with a felony.  He and his 4 year old brother are taken away to the “safety” of government custodial care.  The parents are cuffed and taken to jail.

Please, read the linked article.  I’m trying to run a blog that could be read by the entire family.  I’m so ticked at this story my filters may fail me.

Suffice to say, CPS and bad neighbors can, and do, cause good folks a lot of trouble and money.  I hope the neighbors can be sued.  I wish CPS could be sued.

There’s probably going to be more to this story.

I would just like to read one good CPS story.  I can’t remember if I’ve ever done that.

Be neighborly, call 911.  Geez.

What do you think?
