I’M INSULATED

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

According to our national census, about 81% of all Americans live in cities. The other 19% live in rural areas and I’m one of them. The little tiny town where I live can hardly be called a city, or even much of a town. It has a post office and a little tiny grocery store and that’s it. It is butted up against a larger town, which is still of no great shakes. I think our total population between the two might be around 3500 people scattered out and around, with lots of bare land in between.

It’s the cities that catch all the hell, because that’s where the people are concentrated, and it’s the terror groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM) that only focus their efforts there. BLM actually doesn’t seem to be correctly described as a group. They have leaders, who mostly seem to rely on the readiness of young blacks to riot and raise hell simply for the fun of it, to raise a mob of demonstrators when they want to stage a protest. Ferguson, Missouri is a perfect example. The BLM thugs went in there and started a protest over the death of a big, husky young black who stole a carton of cigarets at a store. The store owner reported the theft to police, a patrol officer spotted the thief and tried to arrest him. The thief attacked the officer and tried to take his gun from him, the officer shot the thief in self-defense. That’s when the BLM people came in and got a riot going that tore up the city of Ferguson for weeks before it ended, then the officer was found to have acted properly by a grand jury and the black riots started all over again.

Islamic terrorists target the most densely populated places they can find, for maximum effect, just like racist terrorists and homosexual (LGBT) terrorists. The only thing I can say for the queers is that at least they don’t kill people, they just make a huge pain in the ass out of themselves, and yes, the pun is intended. I haven’t heard of any Gay Pride parades in awhile now, probably because it’s been too cold in most places for them to parade naked. Sudden thought: What an appropriate place for Muslims wearing bomb vests to blow themselves up at. Homosexual behavior is an Islamic crime.

But it’s like living on one planet and reading about things going on, on another planet. None of that protest and terror stuff happens out here in the boondocks of America. Cities are exciting places to live but they’re also dangerous and always have been. Most crimes and the worst crimes happen in the cities. The air is dirtier, everything is dirtier, there’s more disease spread around, and faster, traffic is much worse, anger and frustration levels are way higher for city people than country people, the cost of living is much higher.

It’s true that there’s not much social life in the country, and jobs are scarcer, but people live longer in rural areas and are closer to Nature. Everything in life is a trade-off. The great thing about living in the country is that you can visit the city any time you want, and then go back to your rural home with your dogs and cats, horses and chickens. You can have both and not worry about a gang of black thugs flash-mobbing the local stores or some crazy Muslim exploding himself at your Memorial Day parade.

LIFE AT L4

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Living off the grid planet is becoming increasingly attractive. There are 5 Lagrange Points out there, between Earth and Sun, and even more if you include the other planets in our system, although it starts getting pretty inhospitable when you move closer in or farther out, for us organic critters. Lagrange Points are positions in an orbital configuration of two large bodies where a small object affected only by gravity can maintain a stable position relative to the two large bodies. In other words, if your orbital speed is right, you stay in the same place permanently.

Lagrange Points have been a tool in science fiction stories for decades, as they’re great places to put self-sustaining satellite cities. We peeps have some satellites at Lagrange Points now. Anyway, given that the Earth looks to be winding down, so to speak, in it’s ability to sustain our burgeoning masses, let alone find room for us all, moving out into space is looking more and more like the thing to do for the mega-rich among us. Just think, no illegal alien problems, no China threatening to invade everyone, no North Korean 300 pound ball of pig fat ordering everyone to eat plant roots. By the time it’s possible to build places like this, billionaires will be doing it, creating their own private islands in space. Of course, one Lagrange Point can accommodate more than one space island, and no doubt one or two of the five will become the most fashionable and there will be squabbles over who has the right to build there, and who isn’t welcome in the neighborhood.

I can see it now, Carlos Slim’s descendants trying to move in next door to some Chinese billionaire and the Mexicans and Chinese both fighting over the Interstellar drug trade or the most coveted position, or installing nuclear missiles, or declaring the entire area to be the property of China or Mexico. Yeah, even in space they’d fight with each other. Can you imagine how the Saudi oil sheiks would act out there? They’d claim all the sun energy as their own, setting up huge solar grids that blocked out the other space islands, and then offering to sell them solar energy.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I think that cave living right here on Earth may be the best bet.

BATTLING BUNGHOLES?

Saturday, March 12th, 2016

Fox News has been running commentary after commentary attacking Donald Trump and blaming the organized protest against him in Chicago last night on him instead of the assholes who attacked him, while CNN has been steadily saying things in support of him and attacking those who violated his right to Freedom of Speech.

What the hell? CNN is supportive of Trump? Can this simply be CNN seizing the advantage here, to make Fox look bad? If so, it’s sure working. CNN is looking more “Fair and Balanced” these days than Fox has in quite a while. I never imagined I’d ever say that. They still give Hitlery and Bernie the Red plenty of air time, but their message is steadily moderating toward the middle and away from the Left. Does this mean there’s still hope that pigs will some day fly?

DIE, BITCH

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

There’s a lot of talk in the media lately about the death of the Republican Party, or possible death, caused by the election of Donald Trump and the resultant ousting of the Old Elite Guard.

I really don’t care what kills the Republican Party, I just know, as most of us do, that it deserves to die and rot in the ground. It’s been run for decades by the mega-rich, whose only goal has been to gain more and more power and wealth at the expense of all the rest of us. This is exactly why George Bush father and son both promised to build a wall to protect our border with Mexico and have not, lying to us instead while spending billions of dollars APPEARING to do it, and making a fortune in kickbacks from the builders who were paid far more than they should have been, just like the famous $800 hammers for NASA, the bail-outs of Wall Street and the banks and on and on ad nauseum.

Both parties have done their best to destroy our Constitution and take away our rights and if they don’t crash and die, then I’m for anarchy. We need a revolution in this country. In fact we need a revolution on the whole planet, we need to wipe all government off the face of the Earth. But right now I’ll settle for one here, that would at least be a start.

And it needs to be said that if the Republican Party dies it won’t be Trump that killed it, it’s already dying member by member through suicide. When scumsucking, corporate pirate, job-destroying assholes like Mitt Romney creep back out from under their slimy rocks, paid, aided and abetted by the Elitists to smear their own leading candidate, they take knives to their own throats and deserve to be buried in political oblivion.

LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD

Monday, March 7th, 2016

A friend from Washington state called the other day and as usual, the conversation drifted over a wide variety of subjects. One of them was hippies and what being a hippie was all about. My friend is convinced that hippies were unwashed, long-haired, drug-using bums and nothing I could say did anything to dissuade her from that view.

The truth is that hippies were all about love, ending war, getting along with each other. That’s what love-ins were about. Love, simple as that. So what happened is that the hippies were attacked by the media and the lie spread that all hippies were dirty mooching bums. Most hippies, and I was one of them, were clean people who held down jobs like anyone else. We were just tired of our leaders sending us off to die in strange lands so they could get richer and have more power. We were tired of being treated as cannon fodder in our daily lives, and we wanted it to stop. We wanted to stop all the hate.

Nothing lasts, and now there’s more hatred in the world than there’s ever been before in my lifetime, or since the Second World War ended, anyway. I read in this morning’s news that the Islamic State fanatics chopped off the head of a 16 year old boy for failing to show up for Friday prayers. There’s a photo of it on Breitbart News, right before his head was lopped off, and in the background is a big crowd of men all gawking for a look, some standing on objects to give them a higher, better view. What kind of mentality would want to see a boy being brutally murdered? That’s an amazing amount of hatred and a massive lack of love.

Love seems to be going out of the world. What we see now that’s supposed to be demonstrations of love, is sex. But sex isn’t love. It can be an expression of love, one of many different ways to express love, but we call having sex “making love”, when it very seldom really is.

Love is expressed by giving and sharing, helping each other, being kind to each other and respecting each other. There’s none of that in Islam, certainly none in Islamic State, where acts expressing love are seen as weakness and possibly even heresy that deserves death.

I’m reminded so much of the Nazis, the utter lack of leniency, sympathy, kindness. You follow the rules exactly or you die, mistakes are not allowed. And I wonder, is humanity going to allow this cancer to continue to spread? It wouldn’t be a first, Nazism was allowed to spread until it threatened to engulf the world, only then did people unite against it and by then, the cost in human life to defeat it was in the millions of people. Now here we go again.

MORE POLITICAL OUTGASSING

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Just a few remarks about Trump et al. The general public doesn’t give a crap about the CPAC or even knows what it is. Certainly they don’t attend it or pay attention to all the speeches made there. They hear about some of it on the news and quickly forget every word.

For candidates for office and those who aspire to some office, attending the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) affair is important, to see and be seen by their peers. For the rest of us, it means nothing. We don’t care.

At this latest one, presidential hopeful John Kasich was harshly attacked in a speech by Michelle Malkin, Carly Fiorina attacked the attackers and Cruz and Rubio attacked Trump. Sounds like a fun event, all that negativity, huh?

Trump said to hell with CPAC and went off to campaign in Kansas instead, no doubt the smarter move. For one thing, his absence took all the air out of all those who planned to attack him, leaving Fox News and others with nothing to report about who said what to Trump and what Trump responded with, or how Trump may have phrased something, or stumbled over a word, or whatever. He gave them nothing to report while telling the people of Kansas that he thinks they’re a lot more important than any CPAC meeting.

I have my own concerns about the sort of president Donald Trump will make, but out of the entire field, he’s really the only choice.

SOME THOUGHTS ON HOMO SAPIENS

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Homo sapiens is the general name given to all of the human race alive today, with that broken up into the various individual types, or races, of Man. Our nearest relative, now considered to be long extinct, is Neanderthal Man, who was apparently fairly intelligent and actually had a larger brain than modern man, who interbred with Neanderthal Man. Today our DNA runs about 2% to over 3% Neanderthal, with over 150,000 Neanderthal DNA traits so far identified. That’s a lot. In fact, there’s a lot of people born today who have more Neanderthal traits than Sapiens traits.

The Australian Aborigines are a good example. We know that Neanderthals were still around and interbreeding with Homo Sapiens up to about 30,000 years ago or so. The Aborigines arrived on the Australian continent about 50,000 years ago, and the ones today who are still “pure-bred” with no white DNA are very primitive and simple people with prominent brows, big bellies and very close to zero technology of any sort. When Europeans first arrived, the natives were entirely unclothed.

At that time there were about 250 separate languages among the indigenous people, similar to the wide variety of languages among the Indian tribes of North America. Because their culture was entirely oral, it was common for one to speak 3 or more languages in order to communicate with their neighbors, but this wasn’t much of a feat as each language had few words, perhaps 500. For comparison, there’s over a million words in English.

When peoples are isolated for tens of thousands of years, they don’t evolve much. I used the Australian Aborigines as my primary example, for comparison to the people of the Middle East who live in a similar environment to Australia, a land of mostly desert. While the Middle Easterners are certainly much more evolved mentally, they’re still very primitive in many ways. They’re still nearly as brutish as the Aborigines in their behavior and thinking.

People in more advanced human societies tend to think that all humans are basically the same and that it’s only necessary to raise primitive children in an advanced society for them to act civilized just like everyone else. We’ve been finding out, however, that this just simply isn’t true. Much of our behavior and innate attitudes are hereditary. We are born with our likes and dislikes and our ability to get along with others already built in. This is the problem the world is facing now with the mass migrations going on. The Human Race is undergoing a blending of all races into one, with the inevitable result that civilization will be degraded because of it. The hope is that the less evolved will rise to the level of the more evolved, but this isn’t happening and the danger is that this experiment will tear down the best parts of our civilization instead.

The final intermixing of all of us into one homogeneous type of human may be our destiny but it’s not happening without tremendous resistance, and that resistance could swell until war destroys us. Humanity has entered into a new era, good luck to it.

ANALYZING NEW HAMPSHIRE

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

That Donald Trump won the New Hampshire Primary with more than double the votes of any other candidates is gratifying, but also expected. It’s the others I’m going to focus on here.
Edward Cruz, who cheated to win Iowa last week, only came in at a lousy 11%, the same as Jeb Bush, and there’s a reason for that. Not only did he cheat last week, it was proven that he did. Then he bragged about it, saying to Trump, “Let’s not forget who whipped who in Iowa”. First he cheats, then shows poor sportsmanship as if he’d actually won properly and in fair play. People in this country are game fans, and poor sportsmanship is unacceptable. Look at all the people who cheered when Ronda Rousey lost her MMA title to Holm, because she was arrogant. I was highly pleased to see her get the crap beat out of her, and I’m highly pleased to see Cruz eat the big one in New Hampshire tonight.

John Kasich. Not such a surprise to see Kasich come up and take second place. I thought Cruz would still take that spot, but that Kasich would come close. Kasich did really well in the final debate before tonight’s vote and was bound to improve his lot tonight. I think what brought him into second place was as much Cruz’s acting like a creepy snake as it was Kasich’s oratory in the debate.

Jeb Bush taking 11% of tonight’s vote only proves that there’s a bunch of RINO’s in New Hampshire. The only chance that establishment weenie has of becoming President is if something takes the other candidates out of the race – in both parties. The whole reason the Republican Party RINO elite is pushing him to be the nominee is because they know he’ll lose.

Marco Rubio – collapsed in the vote, with only 9%. This is a good thing for him as he’s obviously becoming mentally unraveled from the strain of keeping up his string of totally outrageous lies and deceits. He’s starting to blither when he speaks. If he has any sense he’ll drop out of the race now, but I predict he won’t. He’s obsessed with becoming President, with being the most powerful man in the world. Basically, he’s nuts and his glue is coming loose. When his candidacy ends it won’t be pretty.

Christ Christie did less well than Rubio with only 7% of the vote and I bet at least 90% of those voting for him are obese. Christie needs to lose about 100 pounds, is the plain truth of it. People are turned off by obesity. Fat men make good comedians and Sumo wrestlers, and that’s about it.

Last, we have Carly Fiorina and Dr. Carson, with 4% and 2% respectively. I expect Fiorina to give it up and go on a speaking tour for awhile to earn a living, and Dr. Carson to quit the race after maybe a month or so. I think he’s aiming for the Vice Presidential spot at this point and will want to stick around the political arena because of that. I believe he’ll jump on the Trump bandwagon and keep his name and image alive on TV talk shows while promoting Donald Trump. He has no chance to be the GOP nominee at this point but a great chance to be Trump’s running mate. He’s really very popular, people just don’t think he’s ready for the Presidency yet. But… he’ll get the black vote and a lot of the Hispanic vote. Basically, most of the dark-skinned racists in America will vote for Trump if Carson is his running mate. It’s a natural combo.

One more thing, Rubio isn’t the only one getting facial tics with the stress. Carson’s been displaying some very odd micro-expressions lately that are totally inconsistent with the words coming out of his mouth, and my read is that underneath that calm, quiet exterior is a deep inferiority complex and a lot of submerged rage. He’s a good man who has a lot of crap hidden in mental closets. I’d be real nervous if he actually became President.

As for the Democrats, Bernie Sanders, the Marxist who calls himself a Socialist, got 58% of the Dem. vote, Hitlery got 38%. She lost big time and I bet Sanders ends up as the Dem. presidential nominee instead of her. That would be hilarious in several ways, not the least is that he looks and acts so much like the mad white-haired scientist in Back To The Future.

DIAMONDS AREN’T ALL THAT’S FOREVER.

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

Jew hatred has been going on for thousands of years now. I guess people just need someone to hate and the Jews got stuck with the job. They’re so used to it that most of the time they just ignore it, but CBS has gotten their attention lately. There was a terrorist attack in Jerusalem yesterday, Wednesday, by 3 “Palestinians” using guns and knives, who killed a police officer and wounded a woman before they were killed, and CBS reported that “Israeli police killed 3 Palestinians”. Making it look like it was the cops who were the attackers.

Well, anyone with sense knows that CBS is like CNN, they’re Left-Wing Liars and yellow-rag journalists, but enough is enough. The Israelis are preparing to cancel “press passes from journalists and editors who are negligent in their work and present headlines that flip the reality.”

This isn’t a major issue in the world right now, I’m writing about it because that’s exactly what we need to do here. This spin-doctoring bullshit to make things look the opposite of what they really are is flatly harmful to our country. I’d love to be dictator of America for just a month or two, so many people would get shoved up against walls and shot dead…..

TRUMPED IN IOWA

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

The Donald came in second, so he must feel that his efforts there were a big waste of time, since he said that not winning there would be exactly that. But it isn’t, what it is, is a lesson. He was wrong when he said that he could shoot someone and still stay on top, because he shot Dr. Ben Carson, verbally, attacking his honesty and ability as a doctor. His attacks were successful, Carson’s poll numbers dropped way down in Iowa after that, but it was Cruz’s that went up when people left Carson for Cruz, not Trump.

Trump’s other attacks, the ones on Cruz, were also a bad plan. Political attacks are what professional politicians do to each other and have done forever, and we’re damned sick and tired of that crap. We liked Cruz and Trump because they refrained from it. Trump lost some respect when he resorted to demeaning his opponents when they weren’t doing it to him.

I saw this attack crap starting up and I cringed. My first thought was STOP, all of you. Don’t do it. I’m sure a great many others had the same reaction.

Well, I hope Trump figures this out now, after his loss in Iowa, and starts being a nicer guy. This stupid bickering is the last thing we want in a candidate.

AFTER THE SPEECH

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Obama’s last State Of The Union speech was full of hype and blather, but no truth or substance. Claims that our economy is better than ever, that ISIS isn’t a threat, that the increasing racial divide in our country is some sort of unfortunate mystery that was probably caused by Republicans… it went on and on in that vein, but the best part was when he said that Joe Biden is now in charge of an all-out effort to cure cancer by his administration. “Ludicrous” comes to mind, silly beyond words. Joe Biden in charge of curing cancer. Oh-My-God!

Well, if he gave a damn about curing cancer, wouldn’t it have been a good idea to start that program 7 years ago when he was first elected? It sounds good though, huh? He wanted to give a speech that would sound good even if it was total bullshit, and at least he did that, as he got a 53 percent approval of it from the mostly Democrat crowd that was polled afterward.

Tuning in to NBC, CNN and Fox News afterward to get the various political reactions was more enlightening than anything Obama said. CNN had a panel of four people commenting on his speech, two Liberals, one Conservative and one in the middle, more or less. One of the Libs was the CNN moderator, and the other one was none other than VAN JONES, the same black guy who Obama had initially hired as his “Green Jobs Czar”, in charge of promoting alternative-energy. Van Jones is an outspoken COMMUNIST. He resigned shortly after being appointed by Obama because of outrage in Congress over things he’d said and people he associated with. Obama has managed to keep Valerie Jarrett on over the years in spite of her also being a Communist. These are the advisers Obama has drawn to him and the people now giving their opinions on CNN.

On CNN, there was much gushing approval of Obama’s speech, and yapping about what a great job he’s done, while the Conservative voices tried hard to contradict those lies with the truth. It was kind of comical to watch, actually.

Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina gave the Republican response speech to Obama’s, and did a good job of pointing out the errors while promoting the Republican cause, but in truth, I thought both speeches were less than exciting. Listening to those speeches was a lot like watching paint dry.

Overall, the different TV stations used Obama’s speech to promote their side and attack the other side, about what you’d expect.

Meanwhile, the popularity of Hillary continues to slide among Democrats and Independents, as polls show that Bernie Sanders star is rising. Polls are deceiving though, since they don’t indicate who will vote for whom. They’re just indicators of which candidate is more preferred within that political party. People often defect from their declared party affiliation, they did in droves when Obama was first elected, as a lot of people thought it was time for a black president, and here we had a black guy running for president. He’s black, vote for him. Big mistake, but live and learn, huh?

This time around there appears to be a lot of Democrats defecting to the Republican candidate, assuming that candidate is either Trump or Cruz. It’s looking like neither Democrat candidate is all that attractive to a lot of registered Democrats, but we have a long wait ahead of us before anything is settled, and in politics, anything can happen. It’s entertaining to watch, and maybe that’s the real purpose of it anyway.

TWO POSTS IN ONE

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

First, it looks like the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory may have detected gravity waves. If true, this is the single greatest, most momentous discovery in the history of humanity. To give you an idea of why this matters, when we first detected radio waves, we then discovered what produced them. On learning that, we were able to re-create them and in doing that we began to realize their vast potential and all the different things we could do with them.

By detecting gravity waves, we can then follow the same path of discovery and technological advancement as we have with radio. Microwave ovens, radar, X-rays, Television, cell phones and much more, all of it came from the discovery of electromagnetic waves – radio waves, about 130 years ago. Albert Einstein said that gravity waves exist and the search has been on for them ever since.

The UFO’s that we’ve been seeing for thousands of years have no visible means of propulsion. They can hover indefinitely and then zip off at incredible rates of speed almost instantly, where if we did that, the G forces of such inertia would kill us. It is only possible to do this by generating gravity waves. Gravity waves also allow for pressor and attractor beams, that can repel or draw in objects. With gravity wave generation, our ships can travel in our solar system at speeds approaching that of light and use that speed to propel us to other star systems as well as rapidly explore our own. Colonies on Mars would spring up all over the planet, and we could mine the asteroids as well as the other planets and their moons. Our burning of fossil fuels would nearly end if our vehicles moved using gravity wave generation, and the energy requirements are low because gravity is the weakest of all the known forms of energy.

The other post is… and this is really an anti-climax compared to the above… It looks like I’m going to be right in my prediction that Bernie Sanders will take the nomination away from Hitlery Clitnose. He’s rising fast in the Iowa and New Hampshire polls while Hitlery is sinking. Personally I welcome this because I don’t think Sanders has a chance against Donald Trump. Sanders is a Communist. He calls himself a Socialist but a rose is still a rose. Worse, he looks like an aged fanatic when he starts speaking, and when he and Trump start comparing ideologies, Trump is going to show up as a creator of jobs and income while Sanders will be the creator of more welfare outflow. No doubt all the people on welfare will vote for him, but all those who have jobs or who are looking for one will vote for Trump, and I’m pretty sure they outnumber the leeches and parasites.

Right now, as I type, Sanders polls a 5% lead over Hitlery in Iowa and a 10% lead in New Hampshire, and the winner of both of those two early caucuses historically gets their party nomination. Winning one is pretty much a requirement to have a chance at being nominated. So if Sanders should win both, the media attention he’ll receive will be huge and will propel him much closer to the nomination, while Hitlery will drop back and have to fight really hard to regain standing. I don’t want to see either one of these insane freakshow exhibits become our next president so I hope Sanders wins the nomination as I think he’s most likely to lose the election.

DOING THE TRUMP

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

It’s like a new dance craze, more and more people are getting with it and doing The Trump. Latest news is that at least 20% of Democrat voters will vote for Donald Trump, if you believe the polls. The way his popularity is rising, he may end up with a literal mandate by election day.

I see a timing strategy here in the way his campaign is being run. You don’t want to be too popular too fast, because people get tired of new fads quickly. In a drawn-out election like this, you want to be the most popular in your party but not yet at your peak of popularity. This has a lot to do with the collapse of Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign, that and being black. Obama won simply because he’s black, but he made such a mess of it that even Carson said that “It will be 100 years before America elects another black president”. Obama took black from being an asset to a liability, and Carson became popular in spite of being black rather than because of it. Carson peaked too soon for someone who’s black.

Trump wants to have enough popularity to win the Republican nomination, and there’s very plainly an Old Guard that is furious at him. They had planned to make Jeb Bush our next president and Trump has wrecked that plan. They won’t give up until the Primaries are over and the nomination is a done deal and Trump knows it.

Here’s the basic situation: There’s a very powerful group within the Republican party that pretty much runs the party and decides who will be their candidate for president, regardless of who is most qualified. Their goals are the same as the Democrats, to maintain power and advance their wealth, which is why we get people like Obama and the Bushes, incompetent as leaders, who strip us of our Constitutional rights, plunge us into wars and debts, and impoverish us. So if the candidacy of Donald Trump is real and not a clever smoke screen, then of course the cabal running the Republican party would be out to stop him.

The state primaries run from February through June and then the Republican convention will be July 18 through 21. In simplest terms, the primaries are to generally choose each state’s favorite candidate, so if one candidate gets a large majority of total votes, that person will most likely be the nominee at the convention. However, both parties are always changing their convention rules for political reasons, to advance one candidate over another or to shut another one out entirely, so Trump becoming the Republican nominee is not a given. The path is littered with snakes.

Donald Trump’s campaign is the most brilliant political campaign I’ve ever seen. His is the first I know of where his media-value return is more than twice his campaign expenditures, which total about $5 million right now. His personal expenses so far are about $2 million. Jeb Bush’s expenses as of last month were over $50 million, money that was provided him by the special interests who would control him if he became president. Likewise, all the other candidates are spending far more heavily than Donald Trump, and the reason why is because our media hangs on Trumps every word. Even the Liberal media is doing The Trump. All he has to do is say something and it gets reported by everyone. Why spend money on ads?

So it remains to be seen how it goes at the convention, but considering Donald’s great wealth I’ve no doubt that the writer of The Art Of The Deal is right now making deals with the Republican power brokers to favor him at convention time. What compromises will he make?

THE YEAR AHEAD

Friday, January 1st, 2016

Today, all the news media will be filled with looks back at the past year, going over all the highlights, bad and good and mostly bad. Not me, thanks, living through it once was enough. It’s what’s coming that interests me.

What I know for sure is that there will be more terrorist attacks here and in Europe, along with Israel, mostly anyway, with scattered ones in other countries. The fighting in Syria and Iraq will drag on and on, with Obama bitching about the Russians at the same time the Russians are doing the most good against ISIS.

There will be talk of impeaching Obama but nothing will happen. Hillary Clinton, whom I fondly call Hitlery, may lose the Democratic nomination to Bernie Sanders at the last moment. He’s so Socialist he might as well declare himself a Communist, and the Hard Left loves the guy. Most Democrats are aware that Hitlery only wants the job for the power, that otherwise she’s incompetent. So that will be interesting to watch, along with Jim Webb, Democrat, who’s openly speaking running as an Independent. Hitlery may actually not have as much of a chance as the various polls indicate. She’s not black and the blacks aren’t going to turn out en mass and vote 3 times each for her like they did for Obama. More likely they’ll stay home and get drunk and high on weed and meth as usual. Likewise most Hispanics aren’t going to make a big rush to the polls for her. There will be a whole lot of people voting for Donald Trump tho, so I’ll be watching for a lot of illegal behavior from the Democrats to throw the election. Once again I expect to see the Electoral College screw everything up.

Putin/Russia is likely to make some sort of major move this year, as his popularity and power continue to increase with the Russian people. Putin wants to expand Russian influence. Not another USSR, but this time gathering in the smaller nations around Russia as allies. To do this Russia must become more of a democracy, even as our politicians are trying to make us less of one. A strange twist for sure.

I think something bad is going to go down with, or by, Turkey. The Turks are becoming increasingly supportive of ISIS, and while our politicians keep saying Turkey is our ally, anyone with sense knows they aren’t. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Russians side with and arm the Kurds in their ongoing disputes with the Turkish government, and maybe even start bombing the Turks. That would put us in an interesting position, of whether or not to defend our “allies” against Russia. Most likely Obama would do nothing, though.

This may be the year that Iran makes their big move. What I’d expect of them is an attack on one of our warships that patrol the Persian Gulf shipping lanes, or else on one of the Saudi oil tankers, just for the pure sake of raising hell. It has to be remembered that the Iranian leadership is insane religious fanatics, they can be expected to behave outrageously. Any such attack would strain their alliance with Russia, so that will bear watching if it happens. As for ISIS, they aren’t going to give up easily to the increased effort to destroy them, and I would expect to see them pull off, or attempt, a really massive act of destruction against Western society. Something that would attract a lot of new fighters to them.

What would be great would be if I could predict all sorts of good things that might happen, a cure for all cancer, a reversal of overpopulation, an end to the current mass species extinction, an end to the illegal alien invasion and all the Mexicans going home again, things like that, instead of all the doom and gloom that we’ve all come to expect.

We had a happy world for awhile. The 60’s and 70’s were the Golden Age of this country, even with the horror of the Vietnam War. Those were mostly good years when we all prospered, employment was high, American goods were being exported to the world and Made in USA was the mark of excellence everywhere. Very few of us lived in poverty, our population was at a reasonable level and we all got along with each other.

Well, our politicians put an end to all that happiness, can’t have the people feeling good about themselves, after all, nope, they need to suffer. So here we are at this point, where all we look forward to now is the next bad news. I don’t know if Donald Trump will actually make things better or not, but I fail to see how he can make them any worse. The Democrats are out to turn us into a one-party system, and the other name for that is dictatorship.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

WHAT’S THAT WHITE STUFF?

Sunday, December 27th, 2015

We had a sort of white Christmas around here, with a sprinkling of lots of tiny, soft white snowballs in a very thin layer. Not really snow, but not hail either, just cold and white. Since then it’s been frost everywhere and no water coming out of the frozen pipes.

As usual, the news is filled with weather reports, there’s tornadoes ripping up Texas towns and floods in England forcing evacuations. It’s a good thing we have weather or our news media would run out of things to “report” their opinions about.

Meanwhile, not much gets done around here with it being so cold. The pipes will warm up sometime today, enough to fill some pans with water so I can make coffee in the morning and so forth. Good enough, and meanwhile the propane tank was just filled up and there’s a big pile of pellet stove pellet bags on the front deck. As long as the electricity stays on I’ll be warm at night with my nice electric blanket.

Christmas is a day of giving but someone needs to tell all the charities out there that Christmas is over. There’s the Poor Neglected Dogs charity with all those sick looking mutts with big wet drippy eyes and “please just commit to sending us $19 a month for life” while sad, sad music plays, the Aid For Injured Soldiers charity with cowboy singer Trace Atkins pleading in his baritone voice for everyone to “please just commit to sending us $19 a month for life”, the Aid For Children With Cancer charity, “please just commit to sending etc.”, several other children’s hospitals pleading for money, while bald headed, sick-looking little girls tell their sad stories. Talk about snow jobs.

Our government can spend a half-billion $$ training 3 Syrians how to hold a rifle, but can’t support medical assistance to our children, veterans and pets? I don’t believe that for a second. All those charities are run by people on generous salaries who do very little to earn their pay outside of designing TV ads to get more donations from suckers so they can get pay raises. Christmas may be over but the snow keeps falling.

FRENCH REVOLUTION?

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

The FN, the National Front Party of France, long an underdog in French politics, has scored a major upset in the latest French elections, which were held Sunday, Dec. 7th, just weeks after the terrorist attack in Paris.

The FN is considered to be “Extreme Right-Wing”, mostly I think by the Socialists but the insult is promoted by the Republican Party as well. Politicians are always happy to say bad things about each other, but the truth is that the FN is against EU membership and immigration, and for economic protectionism, all of which are laudable policies from my point of view.

The FN received more votes than either of the other two major parties, the Socialists and the Republican, and stands a good chance of taking over the government. A run-off election is coming up, since the voting was pretty close between the three parties, but I think maybe the French people have had just about enough of the Muslims. There’s a lot of them there now and in the rest of Europe as well, so a lot of damage has already been done. The tide may be turning against the One-Worlders who are behind the EU and the Multi-Culturalism disaster, however.

On a connecting note, there’s much feigned outrage at Donald Trump now over his statement that we need to stop letting Muslims into the country. He’s absolutely correct, however, and most Americans know it. It was Islam that caused the 9/11 attack, Islam we’ve been guarding against and fighting against ever since, Islam that murdered all those people in France and Islam that just murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California. We not only have every legal right as a nation to exclude anyone we want for any reason, we have a duty to exclude possible attackers. In World War II we excluded emigration here from Germany and Japan because those people could be spies and saboteurs. Just like now.

So my congratulations to the National Front Party, I wish you great success and my hope that Great Britain and the rest of Western Europe quickly follows suit.

THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUS

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Turned on the TV this evening and on the station it was on, was another goddamned Extinction Event/Global Warming “documentary”, this time about a specific Indonesian village where they all make their livings doing one thing: killing manta rays and harvesting various parts of the fish to sell. It looks like they kill one hell of a lot of rays.

I watched for a few minutes, during which they showed all the dried manta ray parts that were to be sent to China and processed into Glucosamine Sulfate pills. That was followed by a meeting with the local village elders to see if they could get the people to stop killing the rays, and were told that the rays are the sole source of village income.

Manta ray populations are diminishing fast because the Chinese have decided that manta gills are good for making into phony cure-all medicine. The Global-Warming freaks are trying to blame the disappearing mantas on warming, but it’s the people killing them who are causing it.

I have a solution. The way to stop the slaughter of manta rays is to wipe out that village. Then, if another village picks up the trade, wipe them out. Just keep killing off the people who cause the problem. After all, which would you rather have? An Indonesian village full of ugly, dirty, stinky little humans or a healthy ocean population of manta rays? Once you’ve seen those giant bat-like rays leaping 20 to 30 feet out of the water, slapping their wings on the surface when they fall down and making a BOOM that can be heard for miles, trust me, you’ll choose the manta rays over the village just like I do.

The only way to stop wiping out species and habitat is to wipe out the humans who are doing it. But we won’t and anyway, our scientists and astronomers assure us that some day another asteroid will smash into the Earth and wipe out most of us and everything else again, as has repeatedly happened in the past. Personally I don’t want to see life on Earth destroyed, but I do wish we were good stewards of our planet instead of the sloppy, careless, ravenous creatures that we are. We eat everything in sight and shit where we live, and expect to be able to do it forever.

BILL O’REILLY SUCKS

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Bill O’Reilly is Fox News’s Number 1 Guy. He gets all the best interviews with the most famous people, has his own show and has for years now, and is one conceited, pompous ass sumbitch if ever there was one.

He butts in and talks over every sentence of every person he interviews, often during the beginning of what the interviewees are saying and always toward the end of each and every sentence. It’s gone beyond habit and has become pathological. He’s probably not even aware he does it anymore.

O’Reilly used to do honest interviews with the obvious goal of arriving at some newsworthy truth. It is a Fox NEWS channel, after all. But for a long time now, his focus has consistently been on degrading and humiliating those he interviews. He takes something out of context that one of them said, makes it sound like something very negative, and then pounds away at his victims trying to get them to admit that they meant something bad or that they spoke out of turn.

Tonight was a good example. He was interviewing Donald Trump and when hammering away at him over Trumps statement that “thousands of Muslims” were rejoicing over the 9/11 attack didn’t work, because Donald had brought along proof that he was right, O’Reilly started lecturing Trump about not getting excited and saying things that weren’t really true, that were exaggerated, and to the very end, he just wouldn’t let up.

Bill O’Reilly is often totally wrong, often villainizing those he politically opposes in his interviews with them and always behaving with extreme rudeness. All he is anymore is a mouthpiece for his own ego. As they used to say on Wayne’s World, he sucks major donkey.

DISSING THE ABOS

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

It’s been a few years now since I was in Australia, but one of the outstanding memories I have of that isolated land is the aboriginal people. I’ve traveled a fair amount of our planet and met a pretty good variety of native peoples, and they were all pretty much the same in terms of intelligence. Different cultures and ways of doing things, different skin colors and facial shapes and so forth, but people all over seem to be generally about the same mentally. Except for Australian aborigines.

Aborigine is a relative term. Africans are aboriginal because they evolved there. The first Australian peoples arrived there from somewhere else, about 40,000 or 50,000 years ago, near as anyone can figure. My best guess on how they got there is that there was a huge tsunami that swept up their little coastal settlement and carried a few of them, along with a mass of coconut trees and other debris, way out to sea on the wave’s rebound. Most likely they came from New Guinea, which is very close to Australia and there’s a strong physical resemblance to the natives there.

That their ocean passage was purely accidental is obvious by the fact that the first ones were the only ones to make it across, and I bet DNA testing would tell us that there was only one couple. That’s because you never saw any single population of people anywhere who all looked exactly alike. There’s almost no genetic diversity between them even after 50,000 years. The first couples children were having sex with each other and probably the parents were having sex with their children. Generation after generation, incest must have become the norm out of necessity, and the result today is the stupidest single human type on the entire planet.

Today, the only intelligent “aborigines” are actually the half-breed offspring that have resulted from matings with white settlers. While there I attended a number of shows and displays of abo culture, in which they proudly demonstrated their brutish nature and minimal skills. They can throw a spear quite well but never learned to knap stones into spearheads and other tools, and they never invented the bow and arrow. They learned how to make music by blowing into a hollow stick, like you would a bugle. They say the sticks were hollowed out by ants, because they can’t tell the difference between ants and termites. They learned that a flat, curved stick will come back to you if thrown right. That’s it. They never learned how to make fire or clothing.

They told me how superior their form of law was to the white man’s, When someone broke a taboo they would tie the person to a tree and then smash both his or her collar bones with the edge of a big flat sword-like board. If the person was able to use their useless arms to free themselves before the dingoes ate them alive, they could return to the village and start over. Of course, they’d never be able to throw a spear or do anything else useful again and would die anyway. That’s “superior” abo justice.

Pureblood Australian aboriginals are lazy, brutish and stupid and the bottom rung of humanity. So why am I going on about this? Well, here it is, another Sunday, and I’m still waiting for the Russians to kill something Turkish and meanwhile, what’s the point of knowing how to type if I don’t type something? Huh?
