Thank God for Presidential Term Limits. Still too long for Obama

The vanishing Obama presidency

As time passes, being the nation's first black president may be just about his only lasting political accomplishment.
One year ago, Barack Obama's presidency came to an end. His election as the nation's first black president was a major accomplishment for him and for the nation. Time will never erase that achievement.
But as time passes, this may be just about his only lasting political accomplishment; his legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives are disappearing rapidly.
On domestic policy:
·         Energy: The Keystone XL Pipeline has been approved. The Dakota Access Pipeline has been approved and is operational. U.S. energy production is up, and gas prices are down. Deep Obama administration reductions in offshore drilling leases are in the process of being reversed.
·         Education: The Obama Education Department's Title IX "guidance" to colleges and universities mandating how to treat sexual assault cases has been rescinded. Numerous Education Department programs begun in the Obama administration are being terminated.
·         Environment: The Obama EPA's Clean Power Plan to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant, the implementation of which was already blocked by the Supreme Court, has been rescinded.
·         Labor: The Obama-controlled National Labor Relations Board rule treating franchise chains as single employers for the purpose of collective bargaining has been repealed.
·         National parks: Obama's vast additions to U.S. national monuments in Utah have been rescinded.
·         Internet: Net neutrality has been repealed.
·         Immigration: The Obama executive order on Deferred Action Against Parents of Americans, which was blocked by a federal court, has been rescinded. His executive order on Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals has been rescinded, awaiting potential congressional action.
·         Health care: Obamacare has been significantly modified by regulations to allow new, less costly forms of health insurance and by the repeal of the individual mandate. Additional regulatory changes are coming this year. As the health exchanges continue to shrink, the principal impact of Obamacare will be the expansion of Medicaid enrollment.
·         Consumer protection: The structure of the Obama-era Consumer Financial Protection Agency has been ruled unconstitutional by the District of Columbia Circuit Court because it is unanswerable to any elected government official. The CFPB is facing additional legal and legislative challenges.
·         Economy: The economic recovery beginning in 2009 produced historically slow economic growth, a declining labor participation rate, stagnant wages and increasing food stamp usage. Today's economy is growing more rapidly, the labor participation rate is up, wages are beginning to rise, and food stamp usage is down.
·         Military: Reductions in military spending and U.S. troop levels are being reversed.
·         ISIS: Changes to the Obama rules of engagement for using military force led to the rapid defeat of ISIS.
·         Environment: The United States has announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
·         Trade: The United States declined to join the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership.
·         Iran nuclear deal: The president has declined to certify the Iran nuclear agreement, which the Obama administration negotiated, setting the stage for withdrawal or modification.
·         Syria: The president has used military force to enforce Obama's "red line" against Syria's use of chemical weapons.
·         Ukraine: U.S. policy toward Ukraine is changing; the United States will now send lethal weapons to assist Ukraine in resisting Russian aggression.
·         Cuba: Obama's opening to Cuba has been put on hold.
·         Israel: The United States and Israel have restored their historically close relationship.
·         Egypt: The flirtation with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has been replaced by U.S. support for Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
Overall, with the exception of a shrinking Obamacare and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, no significant initiative of the Obama administration remains in place. The near doubling of the federal debt during his eight-year presidency — from $10 trillion to $19 trillion — seems like a very high price to pay for such ephemeral results.
The Obama presidency is vanishing before our eyes. In only 12 short months, the legacy of Obama's presidency is best captured by the motto of a well-known disaster restoration company: "like it never even happened."
Jeff Bergner served in the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. He wrote this for The Virginian-Pilot.

Let' s see if I've got this straight.....

If we get Nuked, it'll be by North Korea with:

Missiles built with technology given to China by Bill Clinton ,
funded by Iran with money Obama gave them,
with warheads developed from Uranium sold to Russia by Hillary
and refined by Iran into weapons-grade plutonium in Russian centrifuges bought with money Obama also gave them.
And Trump's trying to undo this shit storm......but he's the Traitor?

OK, I THINK I GOT IT NOW ???????????????

A Gun-Control Measure Conservatives Should Consider

Gun-violence restraining orders (GVROs) make us all safer while empowering the individual and protecting liberty.
To understand the American gun-control debate, you have to understand
the fundamentally different starting positions of the two sides. Among conservatives, there is the broad belief that the right to own a weapon for self-defense is every bit as inherent and unalienable as the right to speak freely or practice your religion. It’s a co-equal liberty in the Bill of Rights, grounded not just in the minds of the Founders but in natural law.
Against this backdrop, most forms of gun control proposed after each mass killing represent a collective punishment. The rights of the law-abiding are restricted with no real evidence that these alleged “common sense” reforms will prevent future tragedies in any meaningful way.

Hmmmmmmm?

Get the feeling that if we stopped the welfare the number might go down.   Just a thought....?  And, no verification of the stats?



Died from Natural Causes....

An illegal alien, in Polk County, Florida, who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop,
ended up "executing" the deputy who stopped him.  The deputy was shot eight times,
including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed.

The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area.  As soon as he took a shot at the
SWAT team, officers opened fire on him.  They hit the guy 68 times.

Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why they had to shoot the poor,
undocumented immigrant 68 times.

Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel: "Because that's all the ammunition we had."

Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what??

The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes. 
When asked by a reporter how that could be, since there were 68 bullet wounds in his body,
he simply replied: (BEST QUOTE ever) . .

"When you are shot 68 times you are naturally gonna die."

Love my new truck...

I bought a new Dodge 3500 Ram. Tri-Flex Fuel Truck It'll run on either hydrogen, gasoline, or E-85. Had to take it back to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work.

The service technician explained that the radio was voice-activated. 'Nelson', the technician said to the radio. The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?'Willie!' he continued, and 'On The Road Again came from the speakers. Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant 'Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, Beethoven', I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, Beatles', I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Well, yesterday, some old lady ran a red light and nearly smashed into my new truck, but luckily I swerved in time to avoid her.I yelled, 'You Crazy Bitch!'

Immediately the radio responded with, “Ladies and gentlemen, The Democratic Leader and former speaker of the House ....Nancy Pelosi.”

Damn, I love this truck!... God Bless America

Another Kennedy grabs a microphone......


Take a break with George Carlin..

George was my favorite entertainer ....and glad a lot of his stuff survived....


Comment from KAREN VAUGHN Mother of Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal

This lady has a lot to say.......

"Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn't mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn't even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he's necessary for such a time as this.

I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House and gave this nation one more chance in November 2016. Donald Trump is what he is. He is still the man he was before the election. And without guilt, I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

He's not like me. That's okay with me. I don't want to be like him. I will never behave like him. I know we've NEVER had a man like him lead our nation. It's crazy and a little mind blowing at times. But I can't help admire the ability he has to act with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he's been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

I'm THRILLED with what he's doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn't matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST. I will not be ashamed of my position because others don't see him through the same lens.


Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he's pulling me from a burning building? Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments? Heck no! I'd CARE about what he was DOING. He wasn't sent there to save my soul and I'm not looking to him for spiritual guidance. All I'm thinking in those moments is, "Thank you, Jesus, for sending the fireman."

I'll post this article below again for those who still might not understand me.

This man is crass. Okay. He's not careful with what he says. Okay. You feel offended that he's not a typical statesman. Okay. But he is rebuilding the nation my son died for...the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.

 Forgive me if I'm smiling.”

 An Arab family was considering putting
 their grandfather (Abdullah) in a nursing home. All the Arab
 Facilities were completely full, so they had to put him in
 an Italian home. After a few weeks in the Italian facility,
 they came to visit
 Grandpa.
 How do you like it
 here?" asked the grandson"

 It's wonderful!
 Everyone here is so courteous and respectful," said
 grandpa.

 "We're so happy for you. We
 were worried that this was the wrong place for you, since
 you are a little different from everyone."

 "Oh, no! Let me tell
 you about how wonderfully they treat the residents,"
 Abdullah said with a big smile.

 "There's a
 musician here - he's 85 years old. He hasn't played
 the violin in 20 years, and everyone still calls him
 Maestro!

 There is a judge in here
 - he's 95 year old. He hasn't been on the bench in
 30 years and everyone still calls him Your Honor.

 There's a dentist

 years, and everyone still calls him Doctor!

 And me - I haven't

Political Differences Explained.......

 If someone asks you what the main difference is between most of the Obama supporters and most of the Trump supporters, instead of stammering and stuttering and looking for an answer, just tell them that the Trump supporters sign their checks on the front, and the Obama supporters sign their checks on the back.

I NEVER REALIZED THAT IT WAS THIS SIMPLE!

9 Enigmas that make you scratch your head...

Thanks to John Deichman, our Richland Correspondent, for getting this piece to us.

JUST THINK ABOUT!

Enigmas
(1) Isn't it weird that in America, our flag and our culture offend so many people, but our benefits don't?

(2) How can the federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans, when illegal aliens are receiving a free education?
(3) Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis," but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers”.
(4) Liberals say, "If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it's worth it. "Well then, if 
deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn't that be worth it?
(5) I can't quite figure out how you can proudly wave the flag of another country, but consider it punishment to be sent back there.
(6) The Constitution: It doesn't need to be rewritten, it needs to be reread.
(7) William F. Buckley said: "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other points of view, and are then shocked and offended when they discover there are other points of view." 

8) Joseph Sobran said: "'Need' now means wanting someone else's money. 'Greed' means wanting to keep your own. 'Compassion' is when a politician arranges the transfer."
(9) Florida has had 119 hurricanes since 1850, but some people still insist the last one was due to climate change. 

Still scratching????

Okay....where was CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC & CBS ON THIS STORY??

The United States Supreme Court has just issued a direct and final blow to the Islamic Indoctrination of the young in this nation.

The full panel of the United States Supreme Court which consists of 9 judges met to decide the fate of Islamic indoctrination in our American public schools. In a typical 5 X 4 decision, common sense won out, and we have sanity restored to our schools once again.

The United States Supreme Court was able to hand out this decision banning Sharia Law and Islam from being taught in classrooms because of the tie-breaking vote of the newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch went on to write about the decision:

“The government certainly has no business being involved in religion, but this isn’t a government issue or a religious issue. This is about the judicial branch interpreting the laws as they apply to the teaching of religion.


We shouldn't be teaching any religions in the public schools of this country

Amen, Justice Gorsuch, Amen!

Liberals are all about teaching Islam and Sharia Law but they have issues with “Under God” in the pledge of allegiance and “In God We Trust” on our currency.

This should have been a unanimous decision, not 5 to 4, but it seems like the 4 liberal judges on the Supreme Court don’t care about the constitution, nor our values.

Perhaps this is the start of restoring America to its founding glory.

Thank goodness for our new Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch --- a great selection by President Trump.

This is easy to forward.  Just Click on the little envelop below.

Why hasn’t the news media put this out?

Neil Gorsuch has only been on the Supreme Court for a short while. Recently he ignited the fire of liberty and broke 40 years of precedent when he refused to join the SCOTUS “cert pool.”

The cert pool was established in 1973 during the early days of the Burger Court, in order to efficiently review the near 8,000 petitions received each term. In practice, the petitions are apportioned among the Court’s law clerks, who then circulate a memo to the justices recommending a grant or denial. The obvious problem here is that this
gives the power in these 8000 cases to the law clerks instead of the Justices. It also, in theory, allows 3rd parties to unfairly influence a case through the clerks.

That is NOT how the Supreme Court was designed to operate. Neil Gorsuch just managed to set his foot down in the Supreme Court and say it is NOT okay to pass off judgments to the discretion of legal clerks. This is the kind of story everyone should be hearing or reading in the media, but obviously is not.

Fight on, Trump, “you magnificent bastard"! A meesage to my liberal friends !!!!

HE FIGHTS. by Evan Sayet

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum.

They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.

Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety: has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don't find anything "dignified," "collegial" or "proper" about Barack Obama's lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds simply because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don't see anything "dignified" in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don't see anything "statesman-like" in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was "articulate" and "polished" but in no way was he in the least bit "dignified," "collegial" or "proper."


The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the '60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they've fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one of the violent take-over of the universities till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America 's first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like "dignity" and "collegiality" simply aren't the most essential qualities one looks for in warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, "I cannot spare this man. He fights..."

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.


Trump is fighting. And what's particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel's, he's shouting, "You magnificent bastard, I read your book!" That is just the icing on the cake, but it's wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he's defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, a book so essential to the Liberals' war against America that it is
and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton's senior thesis.
It is a book of such pure evil, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted.

Trump's tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after "the fake media" (and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri) Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as "the most powerful weapon of all." ... Most importantly, Trump's tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only
two choices. They can either "go high" (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama's close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists
(William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright's church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration's weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration's cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well: do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be "collegial" and "dignified" and "proper"? Of course I do. These aren't those times. This is war. And it's a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don't care. I can't spare this warrior. He fights for America!                                           Fight on you magnificent bastard! 


A Benefits Question......

Dear Sir,
I have a very complicated benefits question.

Many years ago, I married a widow out of love who had an 18 year old daughter. After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a number of times, and he fell in love with my step-daughter. My father eventually married her without my authorization. As a result my step-daughter became my step-mother and my father became my son-in-law.

My father's wife (also my step-daughter) and also my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my step-daughter's mother. This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father.

As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my father's wife.Therefore it appears that I am also my wife's grandchild.

A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father's brother-in-law, the step-son of my father's wife, and my uncle.

My son is also my step-mother’s brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.

In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following:

Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father's son-in-law and my step-mother's brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare benefits?

Sincerely yours,

Mohammed

THE ANSWER:
Of course you qualify Mohammed! I have arranged to start mailing the checks to all of you just as soon as you arrive here in California.

Yours faithfully,

Governor Jerry Brown

Core Competency


These numbers you can review below will help explain why the last 8 years  under the Obama administration were disastrous for the USA. I read the last item and then looked at Trump's Cabinet. No wonder Washington, DC is in a turmoil. Trump's picks are bosses who expect their employees to work. These are Eye Opening Numbers. This is what bothers a lot of people about Trump. He won't accept a can't do attitude, or inexperienced, incompetent performance. He will get results; it just might not be smooth or pretty.   Obama's cabinet, and all around him were the traditional "Swamp Dwellers" sucking at the public trough.


Here are some amazing stats: Make sure you read to the bottom. An eye opener!

1. These 10 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed!

                                       California,New Mexico,Mississippi,Alabama,Illinois,Kentucky
                                       Ohio,New York,Maine, and South Carolina

2. The Senate Budget Committee recently reported that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.

What's the problem with that much support? Well the average household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

3. Check the last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is: A real-life business not a government job

Here are the percentages:

38% T. Roosevelt
40% Taft
52% Wilson
49% Harding
48% Coolidge
42% Hoover
50% F. D. Roosevelt
50% Truman
57% Eisenhower
30% Kennedy
47% Johnson
53% Nixon
42% Ford
32% Carter
56% Reagan
51% GH Bush
39% Clinton
55% GW Bush
8% Obama
90% Trump

This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of the last administration: ONLY 8% of them have ever worked in private business!  That's right! Only eight percent - the least, by far of the last 19 presidents! And these people tried to tell our corporations how to run their businesses?

How could Obama, president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."

Probably a good idea to pass this on, because we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media, or from the alphabet networks.

This is worth Masters Degree in economics.. And it is free!!!.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.


These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

When you look at all of the "swamps" across the United Stages weather they they are communities, state or cities, there is almost always an underlying common denominator.  In the predominant black communities that constantly complain about their financial grief or equality status you find that that same common denominator......THEY HAVE DEMOCRAT (aka:  Socialist, Liberal, Progressive) government entities.  The stupid thing is that they keep, generation after generation, VOTING themselves into poverty!!!  You can't fix stupid..


5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?
Neither could I.

MadDog Mattis....




A wild eyed (and butt ugly) old woman walked into a crowded bar in downtown Washington, DC waiving an un-holstered pistol and yelled out,
"I have a .45 caliber Colt 1911, with a seven round magazine, plus one in the chamber. I want to know who's been sleeping with my husband?"

A female voice from the back of the room called out, "You Need More Ammo Hillary!"

A guy walks into a bar inNew York where all the bartenders are robots:

The guy sits down at the bar and the robot asks: “What will you have?
The guy replies, “Whiskey.” The robot brings back his drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”

The guy say, “168”

The robot talks about physics, space exploration, and medical technology.

After the guy leaves, he pauses at the street corner and thinks about what he just encountered, and the more he thinks about it the more curious he gets, so he decides to go back.

The robot asks, “What’s your drink?” The guy answers, “Whiskey.”
The robot returns with his drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”
This time the man replies, “100.”

The robot talks about Nascar, Budweiser, LSU and All-star Wrestling.

The man finishes his drink, leaves, but is so interested in this “experiment” that he decides he'll try again. He enters the bar and, as usual, the robot asks him what he wants to drink.

The man replies, “Whiskey.”

The robot brings the drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?” This time the man answers, “50.”

The robot leans in real close and slowly asks, "So, are you people still unhappy that Hillary lost?”

A smile for the weekend...

When I heard Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were guest preachers at a nearby
church, I decided to go there and check them out in person.

As soon as I sat down, Reverend Sharpton came over to me. I don't know why,
maybe it was because I was the only white person in the church?
He laid his hands on my shoulder and said: "By the will of Jesus the Lord
Almighty, and the will of God, you will walk today."

I told him I was not paralyzed.

Then Jesse Jackson came by and said: "By the Grace of God, and his Son
Jesus, the Lord Almighty, you will walk today."
I stepped outside and lo and behold ---

My car was gone !

History Lesson to explain the Electoral College.

EDITORS NOTE:  From my mailbag, this personal note below from friend and fraternity brother with regard of understanding the Electoral College.  The importance of it became very vivid in the 2016.  Especially, with the Democrats whining and tearing out their hair because our nation dumped Crooked Hillary.  


"Hi All,
All of you know or know of my old friend of many years Bill Stott. Recently he sent me an analogy of the 2016 election results comparing the popular vote to the Electoral College vote. the last . You will find it below.
It rminded me of all the bullshit that has been passed around for years that the Electoral College is antiquated and we should be using the popular vote for presidential elections. This propaganda has been around for years. A lot of it is generated in schools by teachers who either don't understand the consequences of what a popular vote could actually bring us or they are brained washed from their university teaching in the liberal tradition and parrot whatever they have been told.

Here is a little of my experience in this matter. The first presidential election I can remember is 1944. Franklin Roosevelt, Democrat, beat Thomas Dewey the Republican contender. During the 1948 elections I was in the 7th grade and remember that election very well. Dewey ran again, but Harry Truman won in a come from behind win. As I look back, I remember all of the teachers were telling us that we should do away with the Electoral College. One of the reasons was that it was only devised in the Constitution because of poor communication, travel conditions, etc. of the late 18th century and the votes couldn't be counted properly, I believe that reasoning is still around today.

Since all of you reside (except for Jessica) in a small state consider the ramifications of where a popular vote could put you in an election in the future no matter which side of the political fence you are on. I believe the attachment tells the story. Be sure and enlighten your kids.
Love,
Pop"



"Our Founders in their infinite wisdom created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet and it should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense."

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore: These 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

Why didn't he get the job done in 1995 and saved us all the trouble???

President Trump should run this video, ....and end it with his red hat on and simply say "I endorse this
message !"




From my mailbag. Thanks John R. our Georgia contributor.

I am now in my 80’s. Recently I received a questionnaire and request for money
from the Republican Party and strongly agree with every question as I have since Obama was elected.  Unfortunately the one question that was missing is: What have the  Republicans done for the American people?
  
We gave you a majority in the House and Senate, and you never  listened to us.
Now you want our money, my money, more money. You should be more concerned
about our votes, not our money. You are the establishment which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets.
  
Well guess what? It's not going to happen. So far, TRUMP hasn't asked for a dime.
 
You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course,
but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what he has, especially in the state of New York .
  
Here's why I want Trump: Yes, he's a bit of an ass; yes, he's an  egomaniac;
but I don't care.
  
The country is a mess because politicians suck.
 The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, and illegals are  everywhere.
  
I want it all fixed!
I don't care that Trump is crude.
I don't care that he insults people.
I don't care that he has changed positions.
I don't care that he's been married 3 times.
I don't care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell.
I don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist.
  
Our country has become weak, and bankrupt. Our enemies are making fun of us.
We are being invaded by illegals.
  
We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hassid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in,  "AND I JUST WANT IT FIXED."
 
 And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what We The People want and need. 
  I'm sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, sick of the Republican Party.
I just want this thing fixed.
 
 Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn't have lobbyist money controlling him;
he doesn't have political correctness restraining him;all you know is that he has been very successful; a good negotiator; he has built a lot of things; and,he's also not a politician.
  
He says he'll fix it.I believe him because he is too much of an egotist
to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.
  
I don't care if the guy has bad hair.
  
Thought for the Day: 

"No country can sustain, in idleness,more than a small percentage of its numbers.
The great majority must labor at something productive!"
