 I love making predictions.  The problem is that when we talk about our Progressive friends on the left it is almost too easy...

Why isn't the media reporting the ongoing riots in Portland and, to a lesser extent, other places?  

Anyway, off track.  Kinda.

Prediction:  If the Harris/Biden ticket wins there will be a collective groan from Conservatives across the country and we will go about our business, hoping to oust her from office next time around.  

If the Trump/Pence ticket is reelected America will go up in flames.  Our Progressive friends will make sure of that.  Their tactics of stalling as much as possible in the Legislature, bringing up new and ridiculous charges against President Trump to prevent him governing, will be seen as "not enough".  "The People" will take to the streets and burn the town to the ground.

I'd bet on it.

Have we grown too far apart to fix this mess?  The Left opposes Trump for one simple reason... he interrupted the Progressive take-over that Obama started and that Clinton was suppose to continue.  The Left is full of hate.  And they don't care.  They don't care about you, they don't care about me.  As we use to say in the Army... "They'd walk over their dying mother to have intercourse with their syphilitic sister."  They don't want to "get along".  They don't want to "compromise" in order to find policies that benefit the most people.  They hate and they destroy.  They believe that if you are successful, you owe them.  They want more government to assure that they get their "fair share".  Most of them lack the wherewithal and motivation to become financially successful on their own.  They want to take the wealth gained by those who have the vision and courage and motivation to create it.  Because.  As that famous idiot Marxist once said: "If you have a successful business, you didn't build that...".  And they believe him.

Anyway... there are choices.  Americans are afraid to make those choices.  They are use to electing either a Democrat or a Republican.  Because it's what we have always done.  And it's why we are where we are.

I already voted.  Jo Jorgensen.  Why?  Because a vote for either the D or the R assures that nothing will change.  Both candidates are morally and ethically bankrupt.  I want to be able to sleep at night and cannot, in good conscience, vote for either of them.  I am at that point where I can no longer vote for "the lesser of two evils".  We cannot make change unless we are willing to step up and do something to force change.  Where does it start?  When?  For me it starts here and now.  But hey, that's just me...  :)

Here is a good article that goes a long way toward explaining our current predicament.  The short summary is this:

"What we found is that most Americans — upward of 80 percent to 85 percent — follow politics casually or not at all."
But the 80 to 85% who don't engage in politics still vote... That should give you pause for concern.


Yes, I realize that the Times leans Left.  I also realize that this is an opinion piece.  A researched opinion piece.  I will say again what I think was the most important takeaway from the article...  80 to 85% of Americans DO NOT engage in politics, or they engage only casually.  Yet they vote.  Who do they vote for?  I can only guess... Their Party?  "An educated electorate..."  LOL. 



The birds in my back yard keep me occupied.  I shot this photo through the screen window in my kitchen yesterday.


Do these tail feathers make me look fat?

Many of the big cities have already called up troops, boarded up buildings, and taken other pro-active measures. It will, indeed, be a shit storm on Nov 4th. Glad I live where I do.

Oh, Dear Adrienne... And the Left believes that the media reports everything and that it reports the truth. They also believe that more government is a good thing. Scary... The physical destruction of America is OK with them. It's the price to be paid to create their Marxist utopia. They ARE Marxists, ya know. Every fucking one of them. Even the ones who are too stupid to realize it.

You stay safe out there!

You have tail feathers? I'd suggest getting that checked out, wouldn't want to be mistaken for a large pheasant. ;)

The left has been creating the mechanisms to steal elections ever since the Bush/Gore debacle 20 years ago. They went insane when Cankles The Killer lost n election they truly believed she couldn't lose. They have ZERO intentions of losing this one. And the advent of the Shanghai Shivers allowed them to put into play universal "Mail In Voting" and "Ballot Harvesting". Add in corrupt judges that allow votes that magically appear WEEKS argentine election to count and that rule signatures on ballots do NOT have to match the signature on the registration and you have the perfect storm of fraud bearing down on America. It will take a literal miracle for Trump to win.

When Basement Biden takes pride within days he will step down..... voluntarily or otherwise. Thapen we will get Kamala the Kommie.....a TRUE believer in Marxism. While the conservative side of America might just duck down, get back to work and hope to remove her from office in 2024 the left is NEVER going to allow that to happen. The left has LOG ha plans to simply end America as we know it and replace it with Communism....and Horizontal Harris is just the insane leftist to put those plans FULLY into play. If the left wins they WILL line up anyone and everyone that opposes them, put them in the boxcars and the rest is history. They learned they can't EVER allow citizens and voters to EVER have ANY power of any kind again.
