Denouncing and Flouncing
The media fell all over itself to denounce Trump, as did many Republican candidates and pundits. Trump was called incendiary, insensitive, a clown, not serious, damaging to the Republican “brand,” not what “we” are about, and so on
I am so sick and tired of both sides of the political aisle explaining to us “who we are”. How would they know? Most of them have been in the elitist bubble of DC so long they don’t even know who they are, much less know “who we are”. They flounce onto the political stage making more demands of us, telling us they know better than we do what we should eat, act like, believe in, and how we should worship.
They yammer on and on how our immigration system is broken, the only way to fix it is to expand the eleven programs (yes, eleven visa programs) to allow more foreign workers and, give “amnesty” to every illegal who jumped the border or overstayed their visas, that is approximately 22 million people. Adding more and more to the taxpayer burden for the social justice programs necessary to feed, house, and educate those with zero viable skills. If, as Obama insists, we are not the worlds’ policemen, we certainly aren’t the worlds’ orphanage either. We have enough tired, poor and hungry to deal with in our own country (highest number ever recorded) without adding to the already overburdened taxpayer by adding more and, having to borrow to pay for them. And, Trump is right, we don’t need the criminal element coming here.
Both sides want to raise taxes, mostly on the rich. But, it would seem that word “rich” doesn’t mean what it implies. The “rich” aren’t individuals per se, but the group known to most as the middle class. Because it is considered the largest group, where most of the income resides, it is now known as the “rich”. Pols have their own definitions of words. One thing that will never change is their insistence on knowing every single thing about you while you know literally nothing about what they are doing behind closed and locked doors to you. All you hear is “trust me” and “we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it”. Do any of you actually trust anyone enough to not read a contract before you sign it? In that spirit, here is the deal with Iran.
President Prissy Pants has declared he will veto any attempt to block the bill or to change it. But, a number of BOs’ previous advisers are not happy with his “deal”. Isn’t it grand?
Late last month, several Middle East policy experts–including prominent former Obama administration officials–warned that negotiations with Iran were heading in the wrong direction. “The agreement will not prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapons capability,” they said, and warned that the terms would “fall short of meeting the administration’s own standard of a ‘good’ agreement.” They suggested that any Iran deal would have to cover five crucial elements–each of which, they suggested, were lacking in the emerging terms of the agreement.
Of course, he didn’t mention the Americans being held hostage in Iran, much like Carter and his debacle. Major Garrett asks THE question and BO does his best thinskinned reply. BO says he knows there will be an intensive debate but, he also won’t accept any changes to his “deal”. Why not? He just handed the ME to Iran on a silver platter and thinks this is a good idea?
Side note: We have had an incredible amount of rain and flooding and frequent loss of power due to storms over the last three weeks. Lots of damage from flooding and saturated ground. We could sure use some of that “global warming” to dry us out and help the farmers in southern OH.
