United we stand @realdonaldtrump @TheWellsReport #NeverHillary

United we stand @realdonaldtrump @TheWellsReport #NeverHillary

 

Engaging in protracted debates on social media, I am just amazed at how successful the social engineers are.

Bottom line

You are either going to vote for HRC, or you are voting for Trump.  It is a binary choice at this time and contrary to the Trump naysayers, I don’t believe that it is a selection of the lesser evils.

Social engineers will spin the lie to manipulate the masses.  They do this with your emotions.

I could get used to seeing her on TV “Class Act!”

 

Case in point.

The day before Utah was to vote in the primary, Cruz or his Superpack sent out a nude photo of Trump’s wife who at that time was a model.

“Here is your first lady.” The ad said.  Mormons had to reject that one and of course, Cruz, who swept in as Jesus incarnate, Got their votes.  That is how elections are won and lost friends.

The Hillary camp will use those tactics against any evangelical hoping to keep them home again as they did in 2012. 26 million stayed home giving the election to the Democrats.

Well, lady, this is what you are voting for if you don’t vote.

“I can’t in good conscious vote for that ungodly man!” one posted.

 

“So, you are for late term abortions, political correctness, more jobs going overseas, blacks going into even more poverty, more crime from across the border, tens of thousands of unvetted Syrian refugees and the list goes on!”  Is that really what you want! Are you going to fall for it again?

“Hillary wants open borders and bridges!”

 

3a6d3608-922d-4bd0-9f20-4e56d0c6f9bf.jpg
He gave her another $6 million for open borders!  

 

The lack of jobs in this country does not bother you even just a little bit?

The #nevertrump movement must be a creation of the Democrats and they have coopted many Republicans by feeding them lies or half truths.

 

Tea-Party-Patriots-Citizens-Fund-Endorsement-Ted-Cruz-2.jpg
Our guy lost folks, best get on the TrumpTrain.

 

I also found it interesting that those in the Tea Party movement would use vitriolic vernacular against those of us who liked Cruz and now feel like we must support Trump to stop Hillary.

These folks are calling anyone that votes for Trump, a traitor!

Folks, you must vote for Trump to stop Hillary, end of story.

All of the things that you are against, Hillary is for, and then some.

While Trump thinks that Planned Parenthood helps women but would not fund it for abortions, Hillary thinks that late term abortions are ok. As long as it is not breathing it is ok to kill it.  That I find repugnant, and if you don’t vote for Trump, then you must think it is ok too.

There is a dichotomy between them on the important issues.

Radio talk show host who say Never Trump are either closet Democrats or incredibly stupid.

Erick Erickson
RedState Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson is a #neverTrump guy.  

Anyone who says “Never Trump” is for the liberal agenda or woefully ignorant of the facts.

I would prefer Bernie Sanders over Hillary, and that is saying something!

bernie-sanders-objects

Over the next few months, the candidates will spend anywhere from 1 to 1.5 Billion dollars each to either talk about the issues or tell you how bad and low down their opponents are.

$1.500,000,000.00  That money would feed lots of people.  Multiply that by two for the two candidates and you have $3 Billion in ads and other media just to feed you lies and innuendos so you think that each of them are the spawn of the devil.  Obama called it part of the process and “Sometimes the process gets messy!” Obama

0663182303d2092ae116aa423c9656a10cd6fcd9.gif

We are in for several months and thousands of ads targeted in swing states of “messy!”

At the end of the day, we must vote Trump if you want to stop Hillary and save this country from ruin.

Anyone that says NeverTrump needs to be informed and if they still say that, then they are for Hillary Clinton.

e39048251fc244b7129284d6c63e885c.jpg

The liberal media will sing her praises and report on the issues with a heavy slant in her favor and of course, anything that you hear or read you had best fact check!

After the political discourse of the GOP have you noticed that most of them are talking again?  They said what they needed to say to manipulate the voters.  I still think it will be a Trump / Cruz ticket after they bury the hatchet. Lyin Ted turned into a “hell of a smart competitor” just hours after he dropped out.  Little Marco is a smart guy, and the list goes on.

The voters of this country have spoken, and now we must pick up the torch and run with it.

hair-force-onejpg-f6b3caca7c20554c.jpg

I still like HairForceOne!  That is my favorite line out of the GOP Primary!

The Sheep have come home to roost! @RealDonaldTrump

The Sheep have come home to roost! @RealDonaldTrump

Convicting Trump of malfeasance before he even gets the nomination is the cause of many who promote social engineering in order to sway the would-be voter’s to their person or at the very least, to not vote.

social-engineering.png

They did this in 2012 and it kept 26 million at home.  Obama won…

While the country clearly needs a change of direction, many in the good old boy club are investing millions to sabotage the outcome in the favor of the Democrats.

One candidate who is non-trustworthy and should be in jail is the current front-runner on that side.

The people who vote for her only know that she is a woman and will stand up for their right to kill their unborn child.  Too harsh?  Listen to her speeches…divide and conquer are the democrats strategy.

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Economics
  • Education
  • Sex
  • Color of eyes

images.jpg

You name it, if they can drive, a wedge in they will do it!  Control the narrative away from the facts.  Maybe they can drag Sandra Fluke out again and we can all talk about her $6 birth control pills instead of jobs, Terrorism, Economy, immigration and so forth.

oreilly-on-Fluke.jpg

“Why are we talking about those things instead of her birth Control pills???? Because of Trump!

  • He is the reason millions are tuning into the debates.
  • He is the reason we are talking about the issues and not manufactured things.

Say what you will, his entrance has been good for the process.

The other, a Socialist / hippy who has no concept of economics is affable and tells a good story.  If you have no clue how economics work, his speech is nice.  If you don’t know history you are apt to vote for this guy.   A lovable Nut!

bernie-sanders-objects.png

History is a great teacher and we fail to teach it much less learn it.

worldwide-lead-production.jpg

The rise and fall of the Roman Empire is a good start.  If that is not enough for you try looking at Germany and the Weimar republic. Hyperinflation is what is next….  Look at Greece in very recent history….

 

pb-111005-greek-protests-03.photoblog900.jpg
This is where we are headed when the money runs out…

 

Socialism has never worked, ever!  We are moving in that direction and have been since Woodrow Wilson.  Another Democratic win will take more of your money away from you and give it to those who do not want to work.

 

Churchill-Socialism-650.jpg
This is on your head if your fail to stop it!

 

26 million Evangelicals stayed home instead of voting, as they were damned if they were going to have a “MORMON” in the white house… We have Obama today for that reason…  How is that working out for you?

Well, we are 20 Trillion in debt, we will be $21T by the time Obama leaves on a golfing retirement now that he has perfected his game for the last 8 years… How did that decision work out for you?

Obama_20TrillionMan.jpg

For those of you who have no concept of how much that is…. $21,000,000,000,000.00 …. All of that money is borrowed!  The interests is incredible!

truckloads-of-debt.jpg

We still have not learned.

Those that practice social engineering acquired a new database that tells them all about each and every person in their target area.

 

bernie-supporters.PNG
Software for the political campaign that knows more about you than your do.

 

  • What kinds of cars you drive.
  • Do you go to a gym
  • Do you hunt?
  • Do you go to a church?

The information at their disposal is mind blowing!

Why is this important?

Using that data they can tailor and ad campaign or a speech for your particular demographic.

They can tell you what you want to hear!  (not the truth, just what you want to hear.)

To sit this election out is about is a head in the sand, rectal cranium inversion ish as you can get!

 

republican-cri.png
Cannot vote for them unless they are perfect and tell me exactly what I want to hear….

So what, you will feel better that you did not vote for Trump.  When Hillary or Bernie take the wheel, appoint up to three supreme court justices and welcome all of those Syrian refugees to live in houses in your neighborhood that you will pay for …you can feel good because you did not vote!

 

When the rest of the major companies leave this country because Bernie taxed them to death, you can feel good because you did not vote for trump.

When you are forced to live under a bridge because there is no work other than part time retail, you can feel good because you did not vote for trump!

I am not an apologist for Trump!

Folks, Jesus is not running this time around for president of the United States.  Sorry!

 

ben-carson-and-evolution-with-tardis-and-jesus-riding-dinosaur.jpg
Well, there is that….. 🙂

 

Whoever is the  GOP nominee, I will be in his or her corner…

When the liberal media highlight anything in Trumps past that flies in the face of what Evangelicals hold dear, you are being manipulated.

If they cannot persuade you to vote for one of their two losers, they will persuade you to stay home and not vote.

  • Look up social engineering in regards to politics. Interesting stuff!
  • Look up the I360 App for politics… That is the app that knows you better than you know yourself.

This man is not my first choice but….I don’t think that he is a bad choice.

Six months ago, he was clueless how to be a politician.  Now, spending his own money, he is beating the “established” politicians who are owned by god knows who.

Every twenty-four hours his savvy regarding politics increases exponentially.

His outgo is a tenth of what the others are spending…that says something.

His promise to the GOP was predicated on them treating him fairly.  It is clear to anyone that watches the news that they are not, and still he is running as a republican.  The threat of running as an independent I feel is a shot across the bow… Trump is the ultimate tactician and a hell of a smart person.

“Is he a bully?”  I think that he can be but, I also know from his books and listening to those that know him, he has a benevolent side as well.

  • I think Mexico will pay for the wall…
  • I think that he will rebuild our Military
  • I think he will take care of our vets
  • I think that he will make sure that our police are taken care of, and respected
  • I do not think that he will be pushed around, by politically correct people.
  • I think that those who don’t respect us, will again…
  • Business as usual inside the beltway will not be the same!

During the last debate when North Korea was mentioned, he was the only one of them that had the right answer.

The established on both sides of the isle are responsible for this as they have been the good old boys too damned long!  They fight to get there often spending millions for a job that pays $175K a year to live by different rules and laws than what they impose on the taxpayers.

I for one think that his rhetoric is a breath of fresh air. 

I will be watching all of the debates, all of the rhetoric before I cast that final vote but to date, if nothing changes drastically, I will be voting for him.

I wish that his “New York” persona were not as hostile as it comes across, but having been there many times, many of them talk that way… Does not make him any less of a person or any better of one; it is simply a mannerism that comes off to some as caustic.

The country is in trouble and we need someone to kick ass and take names… Rubio is too young, too rehearsed and lacks the swagger.

I like Cruz but he is to me, too much of a politician…. (That may be just me.) I do think that either of those two would make a decent VP.

Read Trump’s books if you want to get a glimpse of who he really is.  The pundits and established are spending millions in smear campaigns against him.  There is, at least, one super pack funded with its whole purpose to discredit him.  With that many people against him, there is a reason.  I feel like the reason is that business inside the beltway depends upon people who can be bought.  Trump cannot!

There is not a perfect candidate, if there were you would not vote for him because he would not have the spiz, fire, and swagger that we need.   Ben Carson would be good for that, as he is basically and honorable man.  Nobody would hear him.

Folks, we need a big personality in the White House for a few years.  We need a take no nonsense kind of person for a few years to right the ship.

If we keep the house and the Senate they will not allow him to pass by executive fiat that which would be incongruent with our constitution.

I for one would like to see the GOP become that which they have not been in years…the voice of the people!

HIPAA and other things that go bump in the night…

HIPAA and other things that go bump in the night…

hipaa-compliant.png

(HIPAA) Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

Being and IT guy for the last 35 years, I am no stranger to HIPAA, SOX, FISMA, and many other regulations from the government, including the federal mandates as to how this is to be accomplished.

While HIPAA is designed to protect your privacy, I wonder if that is how it is actually being used.

From a DR (disaster recovery) standpoint, your data must be backed up and off site. Your data must be recoverable; meaning that you have successfully tested the process on a regular basis.

cloud-technology.jpg

The easiest way to do this is with CLOUD technology but, I am here to tell you that the hackers attack the cloud… If you’re data, and my data, and your competitors, is in some nebulous storage arrays out there in some data center…that is a central target for the bad guy…

You must have written policies and procedures regarding same… This would be part of your DR plan, run book; or even your living document that is your DR plan.

SOX-Sarbanes-Oxley.jpg

SOX or Sarbanes Oxley is another set of rules that apply to all publicly traded companies that share many of the same tenants of a good DR plan.  E-mails must be stored and retrievable in the event the government wants to see them.  Stored off-site and recoverable…

506408.PNG

The government, for the government’s own use, has stricter policies and procedures which I wrote about some time back when the Hillary e-mail fiasco came to light…  That is why this whole e-mail scandal is laughable as there is no possible way that those e-mails should have been lost, just like there is no way that she should have had a server of her own, dealing with Top Secret Classified e-mails.  Why she is already not wearing orange, and living in Club Cupcake Penitentiary, is a testament to the corrupt policies and procedures that our wonderful government seems to enjoy for the rich and famous or in this case the political elites.

Calling and talking with any of the folks at your insurance carrier, you are told that your call may be recorded and monitored for security and training purposes…  Now please tell me how this does not violate HIPAA?

 

When visiting your doctors you had to sign a release, basically nullifying HIPAA so they, the office staff or doctors can talk about your case, health or anything that is needed to whomever that they have to deal with to get paid.  Again, how is this not a violation of HIPAA?  Working behind the scenes at these places I have heard many cases talked about from end stage renal disease, to genital warts complete with names. I was once working in a plastic surgeons office where his desk was littered with open pictures of nude women with before and after breast augmentation etc etc.   This stuff should have been put up before I was ever allowed into his office.

surveillance.jpg

The simple facts are, that we are living in an age of no-privacy; either expressed or implied.  The idea of HIPAA is great but, like the thousands of pages of tax code, it is virtually meaningless after the lawyers get through with it.  It’s like living in Chicago with all sorts of police vehicles, and one cop who lives at the donut shop.  There is the illusion of security, but it simply does not exists.

The airport is another place where you have no privacy but, still the TSA misses about 95% of the threats that their agents try to smuggle through, while testing their efficiency. 

New-Republic-TSA-naked-scanner-cover.jpg

While we parade through scanners that strip us naked, and expose us to ionizing radiation, they still miss 95%…! How the hell is that possible?!

3-Waiting-Room.jpg

While in the waiting room the other day I could hear the office staff talking about patients and their treatment options… That was not bad enough… One of the ladies at the reception desk was calling patients who owed them money between greeting people, taking credit card info… Yep, she read back the guy’s number complete, the billing zip code and expiration where everyone could hear it.  I take credit cards and I thought to myself… you did not get the CVV code… A few minutes later she called him back to get that…. And repeated it to where anyone in the waiting room could have heard.

download (10).jpg

While I have since written a letter to my Doctor…it does not end here…

0043.jpg

This same doctor prescribed some meds that I went to CVS to pick up…  While in line, the cashier, after getting your name and date of birth, grabs the meds off the shelf, and tells you what they are so everyone in line and the immediate area can hear.

Name and DOB are nobody’s business and certainly what you are buying is nobody’s business…

While I may be over sensitive to this, I don’t really think so…

Either we have HIPAA or we don’t.  Either we follow the rules and policies set forth…or we don’t.

The illusions of security is not enough.  The illusion of privacy is not enough.  Collecting everyone’s Meta data without warrant, is wrong on many levels.

We need to look at and re-vamp all of these policies as we have given up so much of our privacy for the sake of laziness on the part of the employees.

Instead of me telling the lady behind the counter she should ask me to see my ID verifying who I am and my DOB without saying it aloud.  After she pulls my meds she can show me what they are without voicing them… Simple policy changes prevent unauthorized or in this case nosey people in line getting into your business.

There are simple answers for all of these things but one simply has to think… We are too damned lazy to think…

Vote!

This time of year is rife with ads on TV and Radio telling you how awful the other guy is.

Here is the truth about those ads; for the most part they are all lies.  There may be a smidgen of truth in them but for the most part they are complete fabrications designed to either get you to vote for their person, or to become so disgusted with the “process” that you simply stay home.

It is an easy decision to stay home, no lines, not having to think about who is really the best, or care. Many will take that route and than bitch about the outcome.  When it turns into a decision between the “lesser of two evils” they have done their job!

Someone released a plea from a former state representative to vote for their democratic candidate, or simply stay home.  This is ludicrous, and anyone asking you not to vote should throw a  “red flag;” telling you that they are spewing utter BS!

It is your civic duty to vote!  Just like Jury Duty is a civic duty, so it voting. Not only is voting a civic duty, it is a privilege that many died for you to have.

When folks are desperate they run horrible ads slamming the other guy.  

While I would really like to see a debate or political discussion, where each side offered solutions and not simply bad mouthed the other guy; I don’t think it will happen.

Why, because they are politicians and for the most part don’t really give a damned about your problems.  They may tell you that they do, but they don’t.  They may start out by caring about your problems but once they start selling their soul to get money for the election, they only keep their eye on the prize, power!

Politics is all about controlling the narrative.  The Press Secretary Josh Earnest and others are spin doctors whose sole job is to control the narrative.  The truth never enters into the equation, unless of course it serves the agenda at hand.  These folks are professional liars.  Sound Jaded?  Not really, been around long enough to realize that this is what it is about.  This is the “process,” that Obama said sometime “gets messy.”

Ron Klain is the new Ebola CZAR. One would think that he would be a medical guru!  Nope, not at all.  He knows nothing about medical things, he is a political strategist and is there to “control the narrative.”  His sole job is to make sure that anyone from the white house or under this administration that talks about Ebola only says things that are approved “spun” by him, to fit an agenda.  The agenda may be as benign as to control panic, or as malevolent to buck common sense and keep the flights coming and going from Ebola ravaged countries. Either way you can not believe anything that this administration says about this as it has proven time and time again that they don’t have your best interest at heart!  The last argument made against stopping the flights was that stopping the flights might damage these third world economies, as they are fragile!

I don’t know how or if Ebola will fit into this 2014 vote but it might.  Anyone that says we should not have commercial flights going to or from those places should be in the “vote for” category.

So, when you vote consider this, we have their record to look at, and that is what you should be thinking about when you step into the booth.  Vote on their record, their character, and if they represent what you believe.

Obama should never have won. Had people not been so elated about voting in a Black Man they might have looked at his record better.  The narrative of Obama was scrubbed, sealed and spun away!  He was distanced from his former radical pastor who married them, his affiliation with Bill Ayers (the self proclaimed terrorist and his abysmal voting record of his short time in the senate, “present.”  His school records were even sealed!  Someone had been grooming him for this and it would really be nice to know who he really answers to as it is not the people. Who is the puppet master?

Move-ON.org is up to its tricks again using George Soros’s money to scare the undecided and independents to vote for liberal candidates.

The last 6 years is an example of liberal thinking; do you want more of that? While Obama is not on the ticket, all of his policies are!

There is no war on women, it is a complete fabrication.  It is easy to sell because they appeal to what, emotions!  Women and men think differently and most women that I know start a conversation with “I feel..,” well men start it with “logically…” I can manipulate women much easier than men, and the spin doctors know how to do this all too well!  Of course this is not all women but the voting block as a whole is enough.  Simply tell them that men want to control their ovaries and they will vote for the devil.  If you watched the DNC when Ms Fluke got up and gave her contrived speech, the audience was comprised of mostly women who appeared hypnotized or somnambulistic.  Some women voted for Obama because he is good looking…according to polls.  

Before you write me and call me a sexist, or a misogynist, take a breath and read everything. I am most certainly non-of-those things! I have a huge respect for diversity, intelligence and anyone that thinks outside the box even just a little. I have studied too many of these topics and I know how this stuff works.  Politicians spin the facts in such a way to manipulate everyone!  Why else can you be anti Gay marriage in one location, and pro-gay marriage in another? Same person, same  political affiliations just a different message for a different group.  The more you know about yourself and the facts, the less easily you can be manipulated.   The easiest and most simply way to manipulate you is through your emotions.  Women are generally more emotional than men. If I tell you that there is a war on women and I make up some facts, a large percentage of women that read those facts will buy into them. Hopefully more of them might say Bullshit, and look a little harder.  It is kind of like all of those things that people pass around via e-mail or Facebook that is complete Shit!  When you send them the SNOPES link with the article I often wonder if I offend them.  That is certainly not my intention but, my god folks, use your heads.

Just for the record, Snopes is run by a couple in California which may or may not be biased.  Don’t stop your investigation with snopes.

Before Obama we were fine with racial relations, not great but we did not have polar bear hunting, and now we do.   By the way, where the hell is Al Sharpton and Rev Jackson on this? They are all up in arms when a thug gets shot but; when innocent old white guys are beat up or killed because they are white, nothing!  I would have a whole lot more respect for these two if they would denounce all violence!  Before Obama the Ferguson debacle would not have had the focus of the world, would certainly not been talked about at the United Nations and we certainly would not have sent several White House representatives to a THUGS funeral.  As the facts are trickling out we are learning more and more that the cop was justified.  The local mob is calling for vigilantism.  Sharpton and company stirred this pot; they need to stop it!  If anything goes wrong and they do nothing to prevent it, I would hope that the folks wronged would get litigious in a hurry!  We are a nation of laws, this is not the wild west!

“If you don’t want to get shot, don’t screw around with COPS!”  I am not saying they are perfect but, for the most part you have to have something going for you to even want that job. All cops should have a body camera that is on when they are on the clock!  I would like to see a bill written and passed to that effect. When cameras are on, people seem a little more civil.

No one will ever do anything with the Tax Code, because it is the government’s way of controlling the masses.  It makes for great talking points and distractions from the real issues but if a candidate is talking about it, it is a distraction.  The Tax Code consist of several thousand pages of code which force anyone making more than minimum wage to seek the advice of a tax service, or a CPA.  “The Tax code is written for people of means, by people of means, and and by no means written for the masses, you and I.”

Minimum wage laws will be bandied about by the democrats to entice young voters to vote for the “liberal agenda” because young people have yet to have enough life experience to see that it is all smoke and mirrors, and that nobody should be depending upon starter jobsminimum wage” for a living wage.  If you are, you are doing something wrong.

Public Pensions will be of interest as many States who have pensions for their retirees that are very generous, will run out of funding and bankruptcy will most certainly follow. Will we bail them out on the tax payer dime?  If democrats control things, probably!

Immigration needs to be looked at very carefully.  Many states are experimenting with laws that allow undocumented immigrants who graduate from high school to receive in-state tuition to public schools on the tax payer dime.  As far as natural born folks, you know Americans; you still have to pay as well as pay for theirs.  This will be a topic of discussion / debate that will certainly pass, if your state turns blue.  This thinking has also caused lawmakers to think about granting drivers licenses to undocumented people. WTF?  I am surprised that we don’t take out advertising on their television stations telling them about how great it is over here, and how we love to pay for everything!  Come on down, or up!

Nothing could be further from the truth!  We are paying for education for them, and I am guessing that if they stay undocumented and we educate them then we have smarter slaves!  More workers equal guess what, lower wages for everyone! Yeah, that is what you want right?  Not only do you too get lower wages, you still have to pay for your college tuition.  GO Blue!

47 million folks are living below the federal poverty line and one section of government wants to get them back to work and the other, wants to figure out creative ways to help them, financiallyThat is 47 million votes, paid for by tax payer dollars!   Who says you cant buy an election?

People need a hand up, not a hand out!  Democrats are hurting them and one day, when the printing press stops, there will be utter chaos in the streets as those that are sitting home watching cable TV, playing video games while you are out busting your butt working two part time jobs to make ends meet, run out of money.  Stores will not take IOU’s and when the cable, electricity, and free phone stop working; it will end up being some sort of Racial thing where the fat white man is to blame. Of course we know that it is the food stamp president who is doing this but when the feces hits the rotating oscillator it will be someone else’s fault…Bush…yeah he takes the blame for everything!

This administration has built its key economic strategies around transportation and infrastructure but has kept its level of funding stagnant. States are looking at this as a possible state issue, dealing with it at that level. Look for bonds and or taxes to pay for this; as the feds have failed.  Personally, I think that there will be more toll roads which amounts to hidden taxes into perpetuity! .

Drones will be part of the politics in the future as the laws around them will most certainly benefit the government and not the public. This is a topic for you the voter to watch carefully as your rights to privacy among other things, may be on the line.  Make certain that you know how your candidate feels about this issue.

Abortion, the war on women, which is really a war on babies, should not be addressed at a federal level but each state should handle this.  This is not a one size fits all solution but, the pendulum has swayed too far in the liberal direction and needs some correcting. Look for more scare tactics in the 2014 and 2016 elections.  I look for this to be really blown out of proportion if Hillary runs. When topics appeal to your emotions you are being manipulated and politicians are expert manipulators! They actually have people who have degrees in how to manipulate you.  Isn’t that nice? 

Fracking is a topic which should be addressed at the ballot box.  I am certain that the public is being kept in the dark regarding full disclosure, and the public is not sharing in the rewards, only in the possible hazards.  If for instance there is an earth quake in an area of the world that has never had them, and houses are damaged the “frackers” will say, it was a coincidence and leave you to fix your house yourself; and by the way,” some states don’t sell earth quake insurance as they don’t have earth quakes.  I would argue that the “frackers” should be on the hook for paying for earth quake insurance at the very least, or be on the hook for any damage caused by an earthquake in areas which are not prone to such events. Either way a bill should be drafted and language to this effect should be included before Fracking is allowed. In that same bill I would push for more transparency as we really don’t have a clue what they are pumping into the ground and if it will have an affect on drinking water. Again I would call for civilian over-site.

The border should be in this list as there are more issues with this than ever before.  For some reason the government does not really want to close it as, more potential voters are crossing it every day! Never mind the fact that we have people from countries that mean us harm  also crossing that same border.  Never mind that if Ebola gets loose down south that they too will cross that border in droves; this is simply a common sense problem that no one wants to take care of!  Democrats want the voters, and Republicans want the cheap labor, slaves!  We need to wise-up and close the damned border!  Maybe it is time for an independent to run.

Privacy is a concern to most voters so make certain that you are up on how your candidate feels about such things.  Since the end of GW Bush and all of Obama’s reign, our privacy has been under assault.  From porn scanners, to searches without warrants to phone taps as well as data mining.  Technology is such that drones can peer into your open window and count your freckles from over a mile away!  Satellite technology is also intrusive.   Electronic surveillance is easier than ever before.  Your movements tracked, your picture taken, your transactions tracked just because they can.  We really need a technology expert who is on the side of the public. You are no doubt thinking that our government should be doing that, better stop voting for the progressives if you want a government that actually respects the constitution and ah, works for you, and not against you!

One outfit that I know of just released a hand held device that can see in the dark.  This device also has thermal imaging as well as infrared, and can not only record what it sees, it has a super sensitive microphone so audio can be recorded as well.  This device will end up in the hands of anyone with money to purchase it, and certainly into the hands of police.  If used for “lawful” purposes, that is ok but, I must confess, listening to the police on the scanner, I am not ready to surrender my worries about these guys as they can get full of themselves fairly easily.  You know this to be true as you see it every day, even if you don’t listen in on them via a scanner.

How many times a week during your commute, are you passed by a cop who is speeding, for no apparent reason?  Many I suspect but, if you passed them, you would have a ticket to contend with.  We really need to be careful who gets what technology and how it is used. Get a police scanner and learn what your servants are up to.

Just like we need term limits, we really need civilian over-site of the government, and local municipalities.  Lets see some politician float that bill!

 I am very much against voting party.  These guys are all politicians and they switch the R and or the D to match their demographics.  Progressives can wear either shirt, and that is who you don’t want to vote for.  Vote for those who are for smaller government which protect the country, your rights, stand by the constitution, and create an atmosphere that is friendly to business. Before you “pull the lever,” make certain that their track record matches that.

I realize what I am asking.  Put it this way, if the ballots were fill in the blank, less then one tenth of all ballots cast would be valid.  By fill in the blank I mean that nobody was coaching you once you were inside the building, no signs or cheat sheets.  Even if it were multiple guess, if you threw in  two bogus names like Humphrey Bogart and Carry Grant would you care to guess who would get the most votes!   Yep, dead guys! That my friends is why we are in the mess than we are in. That is APATHY! Apathy combined with ignorance is a really bad combination!

You have seen what voting the party gets; now we need to do it better.
