Musings on the Week

                                                                                              September 22, 2018


Leadership – "I have only one yardstick by which I test every major problem – and that yardstick is: Is it good for America?"  Dwight D. Eisenhower. 

Politics – It is time to nationalize local elections for the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, tying Obama, Biden, and Hillary to every Democrat who is running and remind the voters how terrible these lifetime politicians and their policies were for America

Politics – Trump’s Make America Great Again” (MAGA) puts America and its citizens’ affairs first in every discussion, policy decision, domestic legislation and international treaties.

Politics – Democrat’s slogan should be “Guilt Means Always Having to Apologize” (GMAHA) since America never lives up to its evolving ideal and must be forced to pay reparations for past sins, judged by current transformative moral and ethical codes. 

Politics – Democrats have revealed themselves as partisan hacks, more interested in regaining political power than supporting their citizens, meanwhile embracing one failed idea after another which would sabotage America’s prosperity and return to leadership,

Politics – Democrats have developed a losing anti-American party platform for 2018 (and probably 2020): Impeach Trump, Open Borders and Amnesty, Guaranteed Make-Work Jobs, Raise Taxes (Redistribute Wealth), Confiscate Guns, and Provide Abortion Anytime.

Politics – Democrats do not learn from their mistakes: “Not Trump” was their losing campaign strategy in 2016, so now they think “Not Trump” will help them win the 2018 midterm election.

Politics – As Yogi Berra said “Déjà vu, all over again,” Democrats unleash the latest smear and defame “Anita Hill” campaign against Judge Brett Kavanaugh with a last minute un-provable, unsubstantiated accusation from a partisan “social justice activist” about something that may or may not have happened 36 years ago in high school.

Culture – In today’s cultural enlightenment, moral prohibitions against teenage drug and alcohol use and youthful experimentation with premarital sex were removed, and now we are shocked at the sheer amount of groping, grabbing, coercion, and assault that resulted.

Government - "There are a number of things wrong with Washington. One of them is that everyone is too far from home." Dwight D. Eisenhower. 

Debt – National debt levels continue to rise, but the fault is not with recent tax cuts because they delivered increased revenues, but because of out-of-control federal spending levels.

Labor – Minimum wage is a standard of socialism denying workers being paid at a wage that will keep them employed, and force employers to pay others for more than they are worth.

Immigration – The Trump administration will slash the number of refugees to a 30,000 annual cap protecting the vulnerable but prioritizing the safety and well being of American people.

Internet – We are experiencing the slow and willing enslavement of the masses by the tech overlords, whose search engines and social media are not just information, but a filter of it.

Judiciary – Senate Democrats and Christine Blasey Ford, have tried to turn Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation into a Kafkaesque version of a Title IX tribunal, with the accused presumed guilty, unable to know the identity of the accuser, and unable to have a defense.

Civil Rights – Color of Change is a radical racialist group campaigning to censor right leaning groups and conservatives by accusing them of promoting violence and white supremacy.

Education – In the inner city schools Democrats have created, hundreds of thousands of children who go through twelve years of public education, if they don’t simply drop out, without learning how to read, write, or perform math tasks with a basic level of competence.

Peace – "We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom.” Dwight D. Eisenhower. 

Globalism – The Trump administration will not cooperate with the International Criminal Court will provide no assistance, and will not join hoping the ICC will atrophy and die on its own.

Europe – No Western European country can accurately be described as socialist: they do have robust welfare systems and varying degrees of government intervention in their economies, but all rely on private investment and price signals to allocate resources.
