A Republican with balls...

The willingness of the people to sell their rights...

Struggling...

I wasn't there.  I don't know what happened.

But it scares the absolute hell out of me to see how many people say that we have, have, to take the word of Dr. Ford over Judge Kavanaugh.

Why?  Because she is a woman.  She is a victim.  No due process, no protections whatsoever for the accused.  None.  She is a woman and she claims to have been somehow assaulted as a young girl by a young boy at a party.  Alcohol was involved.  You have to believe her because she said it happened.  It's hard to say it happened.  She wouldn't say it happened if it hadn't happened.

Within an hour after the announcement of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the SCOTUS the Left was screaming loud and long that he must be prevented from being seated on the court, regardless of the cost.

And as if by magic a woman in California, a Psychology professor, a Doctor of academia sends a letter to her Representative proclaiming that Judge Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in Maryland in 1982.  She was 15, he was 17, both had been drinking.  She doesn't want the letter to become public and she wants to remain anonymous.  Why the fuck would an educated person send that letter with those conditions to her State Representative?  You know the rest of the story...  State Representative turns letter over to Senator Diane Feinstein, who is the senior Democrat on the Judicial Committee of the US Senate.  Feinstein sits on it for several months, letting the cat out of the bag at the 11th hour of the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh.  And they want us to believe that is the truth, that there was no "plan" to derail the confirmation if it looked like he was going to be a successful nominee.  Are you fucking kidding me?

What have you done about this obvious, blatant miscarriage of justice?  I personally have been burning up the phone lines with calls and emails to Senator Grassley.  He happens to be my Senator and lives just a few miles down the road from me...  What else can one do?

The Feminists in America have been trying to drive a wedge between men and women for over 50 years.  This is the culmination of those efforts.  Trial in the court of public opinion.  Because we can.  And if you try to present a different point of view you will be shouted down, walked on, and crushed like a bug.

Because the Left are bullies.  BULLIES.

And the Right is afraid to call them out on that.  The Right is afraid to call them bullies.  Why?  Name calling has been a very effective tactic for the Left.  You racist.  You fucking dirty racist.  You misogynist.  Yeah, you...

But the Right is afraid.  Can you imagine the effect being called a bully would have on the Left?  Remember how it felt to be called a racist?  Or a misogynist?  Or a stupid idiot because you don't think it's OK for somewhere between 15 and 30 million illegals to be living in the United States.  You don't think 5 year old children have the mental capacity and reasoning skills to determine that they are a girl trapped in a boy's body?

They want their daughters to go to Boy Scout summer camp with your sons.  They want their sons to use the same rest rooms and locker rooms as your daughters.  Whatcha gonna do about it?  Nothing.  Not a fucking thing.  Why not?  Because they'll call me names.

The Republic is dead, people.  Dead.

This post could go on forever.  But it won't.

11 September...

What do I think?

The attack on the WTC.

Benghazi.

And the people who claim that it wasn't Islam...

Yet, the terrorists who attacked the WTC in 2001 and the terrorists who attacked Benghazi 11 years later were Muslims who were at least partially sponsored by Islamic governments.  Governments represent people, whether they are free people  or subjects.  By extension I guess that means Islam attacked the WTC and the US Embassy in Benghazi.  Point being: the attackers were not just a loose knit group of individuals set on causing mayhem.  They had help.

And courts in the United States have come to that same conclusion and have found in favor of the WTC victims against state sponsored terrorism.  Particularly against Iran.  And the courts know that Saudi Arabia was involved in protecting or supplying the 9-11 terrorists, many of whom were Saudi citizens.  It's a bit more difficult to go after the Saudis.  Why?  Well, they are our allies.  Kinda.  But, wait...  Wasn't Osama a Saudi?  Well, yes, but he was simply an individual.  Who was our ally. Until he wasn't...

After 17 years I believe America has lost her desire to see justice served.  Other things occupy our time now...

You get what I'm saying.  Or not.   It's overly simplistic, I know.  Perhaps I'm not thinking clearly?

I miss it...

I miss the blog, but I don't have the fire...  There is so much going on and it's all crazy.  Who would have thought we would get to this point?  Ahhhhh, ummmmm, I take that back.  It should have been predictable.  The possibility of 'free stuff' makes people crazy.  And the desire to tell others how to live their lives.  Powerful motivators.

And, of course, the owners...  The people who own the politicians who are supposed to be working for us.  That is, of course, old news.  Old news that too many people deny.

Me?  I'm OK.  Life is different without Judy.  My Navigator.  But we're getting on.  It's been almost 17 months.  I should be past it by now, right?  ;)

Anyway...  I miss you guys.  ("guys" being gender neutral.  Perhaps I should have said "guys and gals" or "folks"...?  I have said "guys" all my life.  Probably not going to change that now.)

Stay safe.

Peace.

Good Friday...



"On Thursday as they ate the Passover meal with Jesus, the disciples believed that the kingdom was coming and they were on the front end of a revolution. Then came the tragedy of Friday and, somehow even worse, the silence of Saturday. They ran. They doubted. They despaired. Yet, within the grave, God's power was still flowing like a mighty river beneath the ice of winter. And then there was Sunday morning."

Be Afraid...



The teachers knew...
The principal knew...
The police knew...
The FBI knew...
The students knew...
And yet, they blame it on the gun!


Complete failure at every level.  But, but, but...  It's the guns.

Put an end US gun rights...


Agendas...


Just gonna leave this here...

Trust...


Seems to be a true story.  :)

These things...


I'm not saying that our kids aren't smart.  I'm not saying that they are incapable of original, compassionate, heartfelt thought regarding the "mass shootings" in our schools.  I am saying that it doesn't seem all that strange that they follow the unresearched, agenda driven, narrative laden, Liberal thought process in their "protests".  I agree with this meme wholeheartedly.  The idea of a "walkout" spread like wildfire and was approved by most schools.  They weren't spontaneous.  They weren't planned by "the children".  It was a big ole' Liberal propaganda production.

These people are the "useful idiots" spoken about so often in history.  They don't know what they are doing and are easily manipulated.  They are unable to sit down and think their actions through to their logical conclusions.  And the people pulling their strings are driven by pure emotion.  No logic.  No reason.  Emotion.

The Left seems to believe that once they get rid of Trump and all of his followers, they will be able to regain control and get things back to the "way they were".  They don't understand that there is a reason that they were removed from power and that there will be no "going back".  They are going to have to learn that they aren't the only ones affected by "life and government".  They don't understand that not everyone sees the world the way they see it.  They are going to have to learn to keep their nose on their face and to live and let live.

It won't go well if they can't learn to live with those that disagree with them.  I cannot figure out how we got to this point where there is so much desire by the Left to control everything.  I think it's all about all of the "free shit" that they want.  Or, perhaps it's about the indoctrination they have received from the government sponsored public education system?

Ahhhhhh well...  Time will tell.


Department of Education.  No Child Left Behind.  Teaching to the test.

Somehow we have gone from #2 in the world to about #25 or #40, or something.  Since about 1978.  That would be about the time of the creation of the DOE by Jimmy Carter.  Or something.  (I'm making this shit up from memory right now.  Don't try to hold me to these ramblings if they are inaccurate.)

Anyway, I'm a bit rusty.  Forgive me.

Peace.

Still hanging in there...

Thanks to each of you who have left comments here or who have sent me emails.  I appreciate it.

Life is definitely different.

Easter is upon us.  Our favorite time of year.

Anyway...

Peace.

I was real proud of that mustache, by the way...

Missing her...


She was my riding buddy.

It sometimes helps to just share these little memories of her.  My son took this picture of us on our Harley one day when we pulled into the yard at his older brother's house.

A new year...

Happy New Year.  I hope it is a good one.

I drove a few hours east with my middle son to see my grandsons for a few days.  Got back yesterday.  It was pretty good.   There is almost always a bit of drama on trips like this, and this one was no exception.  Still, in the end, it was good.

Anyway...

Peace.
