Musings on the Week
June 25, 2016
Freedom - “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thomas Jefferson.
Politics – Leftists are a minority, but they own the federal government, social media, public education, Hollywood, and the Democrat Party, as they incite misdirected anger, hate and guilt to bully the pubic into embracing the anti-American and anti-God agenda.
Politics – From Jonathon Gruber, Ben Rhodes, and now Loretta Lynch, we see Democrat elites treat Americans as stupid and incapable of understanding the issues that affect them.
Politics – Voting for a candidate based on gender solidarity is just as dumb as voting based on racial solidarity, especially when the candidate is sub-standard with failed political ideas.
Politics – Democrat slogan could be “Road to Argentina” with more incremental socialism delivering economic collapse with everything from food shortages to toilet paper shortages.
Politics – Republican slogan could be “Trump on Clinton” with incremental repair of Obama damage growing economy, creating jobs and repairing American reputation.
Politics - This week’s distractions from the economy, ObamaCare, and terrorism: birth of Chesea Clinton’s second chiid and Brazilian Olympics in financial jeopardy.
Politics – Hillary Clinton must be held accountable like everyone else for obstructing justice, breaking laws, and lying to cover up to demonstrate no one is exempt or above the law.
Politics – Hillary Clinton acknowledges that Obamanomics has failed, then promises more of the same as her solution expecting different and better results (meaning of insanity).
Media – The media wants to be hailed as an institution composed of crusading truthtellers whose integrity and willingness to speak truth to power make them the cornerstone of a free society, except most of them are really partisan hacks who lie endlessly for liberal politicians.
Freedom - “Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” George Orwell.
Economy – Obama has consistently failed to meet his own low expectations, stagnating wages, impeding growth, stifling entrepreneurship, and driving companies out of the U.S.
Pension – State pensions are underfunded liabilities that depend on a 7% long-term return target, which is currently underperforming with a miniscule return on assets.
Environment – Thirteen state GOP attorneys general threaten to prosecute climate alarmists who make spectacular claims of environmental disaster that never materialize.
Healthcare – Insurers covering more than half of the U.S. are seeking average premium hikes of 25% for 2017 for ObamaCare policies sold on and off the public exchanges.
Healthcare – The Republican healthcare reform plan does not present actual legislation, but rather a broad outline of policy ideals ahead of this year’s election.
Gun Control – After adjusting for population, blue states which tend to have strict gun laws are ironically 42% more likely to have mass shootings than red states with less strict gun laws.
Gun Control – The Senate defeated all the proposed gun control legislation because it was all symbolic and would not have prevented any of the shooting crimes that occurred.
Crime – The prosecution against six Baltimore police officers after the death of Freddie Gray is self-destructing with the first three acquitted of all charges, with 3 weaker cases to come.
Education – The liberal initiative to make condoms available in schools to combat AIDS has instead led to a 10% increase in teen pregnancy and a rise in sexually transmitted diseases.
Family – At-home fathers impact: children test higher on IQ tests; girls are less likely to be depressed, less likely to drink or do drugs; less likely to get pregnant, or to suffer from STDs.
Freedom – “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln.
Defense – Nearly 86% of women and only 3% of men failed to meet the new physical standards established so women can compete for combat posts in the Marine Corps.
GWOT – The United States Constitution legally separates church from state, while Muslims treat Islam and Sharia law as inseparable, thus making the two systems incompatible.
GWOT – Any combination: (Muslim/ Islamic/Orientalist) (fundamentalist/radical/extremist) (fascist/jihadist/terrorist) since they are all interchangeable and accurate.
GWOT – Gallup polls find that the overwhelming majority of Republicans view the Orlando attack as an Islamic terrorist attack, while Democrats see it as an act of gun violence.
GWOT – Obama is not angry at terrorists, not fearful of another attack, and not anxious for the nation, but instead confuses causes, shifts blame to others, and distracts from issues.
