Musings on the Week
July 28, 2018
Voting – “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this by not voting." Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Politics – The Democrat political strategy is to create a political plantation, populated by voting slaves, who are provided a minimal level of food, housing, healthcare and even jobs in return for a guaranteed voting block, but break that chain and they are quickly punished.
Politics – The reaction to the new Democrat party slogan “For the People” is the new #WalkAway movement to abandon the tone-deaf Democrat party.
Politics – Democrats are desperate for an issue: Russia, DACA, environment, healthcare, anything, to distract the American people from the Republican economic boom.
Politics – The release of a redacted FISA warrant application confirms spying on Carter Page, a Trump campaign worker, relied on no sources other than Democrats and media allies.
Politics – The only proof of any collusion between Russia and the Trump administration is sourced from the fevered imagination of leftist conspiracy kooks.
Politics – Proof of election meddling has been uncovered, not by Trump and the Republicans but by Hillary Clinton, CNN, and the DNC to rig the primary, so where are the indictments?
Politics – FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions must clean up the corruption we see at the FBI or they must tender their resignations and be replaced by real leaders who will do what is necessary to restore public trust in our unraveling justice system.
Media – In the past, news was reported objectively, just the facts, and opinions were left to the editorial page, but today news programs and newspapers have become little more than editorials with much of today’s opinionating as pure propaganda based on narratives.
Media – The current media narrative is to be outraged at whatever President Trump says or does, which finally the American people now realize is just hysteria and pure partisanship.
Media – The same groups that predicted Hillary Clinton would win by landslide report Donald Trump approval between 40% - 43%, with overwhelming approval from Republicans who elected him and minimal approval from Democrats, but their bias underreports by 10% - 12%.
Voting – “Presidents are elected not by direct popular vote but by 538 members of the Electoral College.” Thomas E. Mann.
Pensions – 114 out of the nation’s 1,400 multiemployer pension plans (1.3 million workers) are underfunded by $36.4 billion, with plans expected to start going insolvent in the next 5 years.
Energy – A “carbon tax” is institutionalizing the envronmental CO2 hoax, increasing the cost of energy, hurting low income people worst, and failing to have any impact on environment.
Gun Control – The problem with new gun control laws, although well-intentioned, is that they do not solve the identified problems and will not stop the crimes from happening again.
Education – The federal government is “stuck on stupid” throwing good money ($7.6 billion) after bad on pre-K programs that do not improve discipline or educational achievement.
Civil Rights – It was only a matter of time until men reacted to the anti-male rhetoric from hard core feminists and formed their own interest group, #UsToo, suing for equal justice.
Voting – “It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." Joseph Stalin.
GWOT – Whenever the followers of Muhammad conquer a non-Arab country, cruelty and terror became the instruments of policy, and after 1400 years of Islamic barbarism, they still torture, rape and execute their ‘slaves’ for the fear of losing control over their subjects.
