They’re on TV, they know the right answer!

Not so fast… Liberal hacks have been spewing out verbiage (verbal garbage) for years, and people suck it up as the Gospel.

Why?  You see them on the “silver screen” and they appear “all knowing!”

They are actors, which is what they do, they act!  Do you think that the “actors in Big Bang really have a clue about particle physics?  I am dubious that they could spell Higgs-Boson much less know one if it bit them in the ass! Please understand I have no ill feelings towards this group of actors.  I have watched them through most of their careers and enjoy their talents. If I met them however; would I like them?  Who knows?

Their entire claim to fame is that they can read a script, remember it long enough to regurgitate their lines and emote.  I am certain that looks and who you know has a lot to do with it.

When liberal elites run things, it is almost never good for the “little people.”  I would expand that to say the “elites” period.

Let’s take the tax code for example.  Each and every election cycle we have people talk about changing it, making it simple.  Makes for great talking points and for a great control of the narrative but in reality, it will never be simplified. It is thousands of pages of text which benefit the people with the gold, written by the people with the gold for the people with the gold! It is a way to legally extract money from you and give it to them or at least distribute it in ways that buys votes from the disenfranchised, aka those who refuse to work no matter what!  There is a part of the population that vote, as their sole job, they vote for a living; and you pay them to do it.

Hey Hollywood, if your so damned bright how come California is bankrupt?  How come every liberal idea of socialism and communism has never worked in history, ever!  The only people that this ideology benefit is the 1% who look down from their ivory tower and say stupid shit like “let them eat cake” thinking cake is cheaper than bread!

If Guns are so damned evil, how come you guys have them?  You want gun laws for the peasants, but not for you.  The people know, and surely you must know; that laws are for the people who are not criminals!  Passing gun legislation will only hurt law abiding citizens.

If you don’t like guns, don’t buy them!  If I were president; I would push legislation that would have every “able” person in the country that was willing and able to take the proper course and get from the government free guns and ammo.  Once every year or two they come in and re-fresh their proficiency and renew the certification.  Don’t you know that crime would go down to nothing!  We who make an industry out of locking people up would change that quickly.  Would more people die in burglaries and other stupid criminal acts, Yes!  Would the courts be busy at first, probably, why? Because people, (dumb people,) would test the system.  There are stupid people out there that would have to see if grandpa or grandma would really shoot them.  “Tap it three times grandma!”

The truth is that the typical response time for a 911 call is twenty minutes.  Let me say that again, TWENTY MINUTES!  Do you have any idea how fast a criminal can kill you and your entire family and be gone?  Long before the first police car ever arrives on the scene.

By the time you hear the door kicked in, pick up the phone “instead of a gun,” that bad guy is already in your home looking for you, and or a family member.  Now you can grab your shotgun and fire a warning shot like Mr. Biden suggested, or you can call 911 and try to stay alive while the cop finishes eating dinner, or writing up that guy that was going 5 miles over the speed limit, or investigating a domestic disturbance or; you can pick up your gun, that you know how to use and save the taxpayers some money, and your life!.  The simple truth is that the cops will get there in time to write up the incident (most of the time.) What will they be writing up?  If you have a gun that Matthew Mcconaughey and other liberal silver screen people (who have guns and body guards) think that you don’t need, or should not have, they hopefully will be writing up that there is either an injured or dead person that was attempting a break in, which needs to be dealt with.

When the people that you love from the silver screen come out and advocate for this or that or for some candidate remember that you have no idea who that person is, or what they are about.  I loved Ed Asner.  Did I really?  Lou Grant, Mary Tyler Moore and even the bumbling news anchor Ted Baxter.  Those are the people I loved, to watch. 

Ed’s philosophy and activist rolls he has taken are diametrically opposite of mine in every way.  This man believes that we took down the Twin Towers.  When he talks in public do you see him as the lovable, intelligent all knowing news editor, Lou Grant?

Mr. Obama seems like a real nice person.  I am certain that I could be friends with him but, as president I could not agree with his politics.  With him, I learned and embraced the word “Feckless.”  That is a terrible thing to have to admit and relate to a sitting president.  I thought that Jimmy Carter would go down in history as the worst president ever, I think he got spared that title.  I think President Obama’s  ideology is flawed beyond repair.  I do believe that he believes that what he is doing is good.  This is the classic Ivory tower syndrome.  Cake is not bread Mr. President.  People need a hand up, not a hand out, Mr. President.  With your approval rating so low, how about stop governing by the damned polls and just do the right thing.  Stop leading from the rear!  If you are lost; call me.  I don’t have a red phone but I am certain that your guys can find my number.  I am not a yes man and will tell you like it is! I am older than you; and I probably know more history than you do.  I have run a company and I know how balance a budget,  I do like it when you don’t have the teleprompter, when you talk and it is from you, and not half a dozen script writers.

Did I say script?

Yes, Script, only Mr. Obama does not memorize it, he simply reads it.  His wife has aspirations of being on the silver screen too, as she has been in at least one show that I saw; Parks and Recs. She is pretty and has the right connections, so who knows.

I am unsure what drives people to want to be on the silver screen in the first place; I suspect narcissism but, psychology is not my main interest.  This country is!

I dislike the process of politics.  What kind of life is it where one begs for money and votes the entire time that they are in the public eyeNo damned wonder nothing gets done in Washington, they are too busy setting things up for their next election!

Things need to change so these guys can actually get some work done.

I have some ideas that would fix it and guess what, they are from history and some are simply common sense which, we as a nation seem to be short of these days!

 Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It’s a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing!  Scene 5 of Macbeth, if memory serves…

Below you will find an “idea” circulating around

Below you will find an “idea” circulating around the internet through e-mail and alike.

Whether Warren Buffet had anything to do with it is really irrelevant.  The true issues are that power is a seductive force.  Once these folks make it to Washington they loose their soul.  Getting elected to congress is almost like winning the lottery!  They write laws that do not apply to them i.e. “insider trading.”  While you and I would go to jail (paging Martha Stewart) they not only can buy and sell stocks on what they know, they can create the environment with your money and invest before the company is granted some huge infusion of cash (bailout).  That is akin to betting on the results of a “fixed contest.”

Washington is dysfunctional and growing the monster larger is not the answer.

If this makes sense to you, just point your friends to this and see what they think. Re-Blog it!  A conversation regarding such things is always welcome and in fact, a healthy debate with educated people is actually exciting!  So read on and tell me what you think.

Winds of Change….

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward
this email to a minimum of twenty people on their
address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have this message.
This is one idea that really should be passed around…
*Congressional Reform Act of 2013
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 2%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
 This one seems like common sense doesn’t it?
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
Two four year Terms
Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
Congress is an honor, not a career.
The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their
term(s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. )
to receive the message. Don’t you think it’s time?
 We can do better than 20 with Twitter, Facebook, and of course the power of the BLOG!
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!  I would also add Washington.
If you agree with the above, pass it on.  Lets make it (dare I say it) Viral!
