The truth is much stranger than fiction

It’s been said that art imitates society and that the truth is stranger than fiction, but today those are being taken to the extreme. Four and eight years ago, when Barack Obama won the election for President of the United States, a large percentage of the country was upset, as they did not vote for him. Yet, did we see riots in the streets, people attacked and killed over their vote for him, or other threats made? No, we did not. By and large, those who voted for McCain and Romney went about their lives, going to work, paying their bills, and just hoping for a candidate that could eventually represent them. Just a few weeks ago, that happened, yet those who voted for Hillary Clinton won’t accept that. I recently saw a post that said the Cubs were being forced to give up their World Series win, as the Indians had scored just as many points over the series, so they felt they should be co-winners. This, naturally, is a joke, but it is very close to the claims being made by the Clinton camp. In 2000, when Gore was defeated, there were calls to end the Electoral College, and those are being made again this year. What no one seems to understand, or care about, is that you can’t just do that.

The Electoral College is part of what the 12th Amendment encompasses and thus, cannot be changed or removed without another amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Contrary to what those who are now screaming would have you believe, this cannot be done by Congress, but must happen at a Constitutional Convention. If any of them can get their representative to call for a Convention, and if enough states agree to it, and if the amendment is passed, and then if enough states ratify it, GREAT! That’s the legal and proper way to do it, but demanding that it “just be done,” well, that’s nothing more than a toddler having a fit that they didn’t get their way.

Much like those above, there are also celebrities promising to leave the country forever if Trump was elected. Now that he has been, and their attempts to scare or threaten people into changing that have failed, they’re still here. So far, of all of them, only a very young star, Miley Cyrus, has said anything about it. In her tearful video, she admits she’s very upset, but at the end, says she accepts the election, and accepts Trump as President. I’ll be the first to admit, that if Sam Jackson leaves the country, it will be very hard to continue with many Marvel Studios properties, as he virtually is Nick Fury, but to have someone tell the country “do what I want or I’ll take my ball and leave” is not how things work here. That’s a playground tactic from elementary school, for a child not picked for a game.

But, that’s enough from me, what do you think?

You can’t make this up!

When BLM decided that police defending themselves from attack was “murder” the media ran with it, and suddenly, all cops were hiding in the shadows waiting for innocent black children to shoot. But, with Trump now our President Elect, we now see riots in the street being called free expression. In Austin of all places, protesters from the “Red Guard,” assaulted others, then claimed that their friend’s arrest was the assault. Naturally, they ignore that they were taking part in a riot (not a “protest” as so many scream they are,) and had assaulted others, and likely tried to assault police. We NEED to stop this. No one from the Trump side is attacking anyone, yet those upset at the system are attacking others, destroying property, and worse. Yes, there are idiots saying stupid things to others, and I want that to stop too, but saying something stupid that they have zero power to back up, and hurting others or destroying property ARE NOT THE SAME THING!


Honestly, the idiot should have seen this one coming. This is NOT A JOKE PEOPLE! Nor is saying you’re going to harm or kill ANYONE. I’m a fairly big guy, and I’ve had some training in fighting/self defense, as I’ve had a few rough jobs. In a fight, if someone says “I’m gonna kill you,” I change mental gears from restrain, to incapacitate. Normally, I go for a hold until they calm down or the Police arrive, in the second scenario, I go for the knock out blow! Why, that person just said, serious or not, that they intend to end my life! In the case of President Elect Trump, THAT IS A FEDERAL CRIME! This idiot not only said what he did, he did so online, where nothing goes away! Naturally, it was “said in jest” or “a product of his profound disappointment affecting his judgement,” and not him doing something stupid. I wonder what he’ll say when he’s arrested by the Secret Service, as merely saying what he did is a crime, and he should go to jail, for a long time.


This one is a bit different. Personally, I would not have tweeted what Scott did but I’m not him, nor do I work where I am inundated with stories about how “black people are hunted by racist cops,” or how “Hillary is struggling to leave her house” and other idiocy, but to respond, to someone who lives in a city hit by the anthrax scare several times, with an envelope containing something unknown, is just stupid! What the worst part of all of this is, and it’s not even sad any more, is that students today are being taught that “free speech” means they can say LITERALLY ANYTHING and face no consequences. When a COLLEGE PROFESSOR goes off about the “injustice” of being forced through a psychological evaluation (rather than arrest) after tweeting that he’s going to buy a firearm and kill random people, and he then rants that “free speech is under attack” they don’t see that saying you want to MURDER OTHER PEOPLE is wrong any more. What’s actually worse than this idiot ranting so horribly he’s taken for a psychological evaluation, is that he’s teaching students and they’re seeing his rant as “free speech” and his superiors’ perfectly expected reaction as “censorship.” All the while, they demand safe spaces where they aren’t “traumatized” by people not agreeing with them, demand the expulsion or termination of people who do so, and are “threatened” by someone writing Trump 2016 on the sidewalk in chalk. Is it any wonder that so few of them can find work outside of teaching what they just finished learning? They spend four years in college, ranting about the “evil white man” and when they graduate, all they know how to do is return and teach how evil white men are. We’re very close to a tipping point people, which way we go is anyone’s guess, but we will soon reach a time when a millennial will sue someone for “denying their right to this or that” or just outright demand someone support them because they “have a right” to this or that, and no expectation of work. I won’t be surprised at all when one of them screams that “Christians are supposed to help others, why won’t you buy me a house and a car, I need your help!” Then, they’ll be horribly confused by either the silence, or the wave of “I will feed and clothe you, I will help you find work, but I am not going to give you everything you demand and let you continue to be a drain on everyone around you.” If they even listen, I expect a lawsuit for something like defamation of character for calling them a drain, WHEN THEY ARE ONE, but hey, what do I know? I’m just an evil white male, part of the patriarchy, who “wants” to work, so that should be my reward, while I should be happy to give everything to someone who “doesn’t feel they should be forced to work, just to get money.”

A common theme today, how do we change it though?

For a week now, we’ve seen and heard whining, crying and loud screams that “Hillary won the popular vote, she should be President.” Some are demanding that the Electoral College just ignore the election and hand the position to Hillary, while others riot and destroy property. All of this, however, comes down to one simple fact, NONE of the idiots understand, or care to understand, how our government is set up and how to legally change it. A great example, oddly enough, is Captain America himself, Chris Evans.

Apparently, Evans just wants to “make it go away” despite the Electoral College being part of a Constitutional Amendment, meaning only changing the Constitution will be legal. If he’s able to convince someone to call a Constitutional Convention, and then if enough states vote for repealing the 12th Amendment, and enough states ratify that, then it’s done. But you can’t just “get rid” of something that is part of the Constitution. But, then again, that’s never stopped people from trying has it? Hillary and Bernie both promised to “make gun control happen” with many others saying the President should use “any means necessary” to get guns off the streets. To them, this means making it illegal for someone like me to own firearms, because I’m in the group they can find, that being legal owners who use their weapons for sport, hunting, or protection only. But, then again, until we’re completely beholden to the government for 100% of our lives, they won’t be the gods they want to be will they?

Moving on, we see more “tolerance” and “understanding” even if it’s presented as a joke.

Yes, this is a “joke” showing Michele Obama holding a sign saying an immigrant is taking her job. But, considering that the left has been SCREAMING for years that “undocumented” immigrants are people and deserve the opportunity to make their lives better, why is this funny? I’m regularly called a bigot, racist, sexist, homophobe, and so on, because I want logic to return to not only government, but also daily life. When I point out that entering Mexico illegally, then demanding health care, a driver’s license, and so on, would result in me vanishing into a jail and never being heard from again, well, logic flies out the window and suddenly I want to kill all Mexicans rather than admit they’re human. When I point out that the Bill of Rights never mentions gender, sexual orientation, or even the word marriage, I’m trying to “publicly shame” the LGBT community and want them to fear persecution. Never mind that while an Oregon bakery was forced to close after they turned away a customer who wanted a cake for a wedding for two women, and that a bakery owned by a gay couple not only turned away a custom who wanted a cake for a Priest’s birthday, but also lied and said the man ordered a cake that supported violence against homosexuals, it’s all about “rights.” So, the next time you pick up a newspaper, or go to the firing range, or remember the Cops can’t just search your car whenever they want, remember that “rights” also means that a gay couple has a right to force a private business to do something against their religion, and a gay baker can turn away anyone they want.

Finally, where are we headed now that we know how the world views rights and such? Well, we’re headed further down the path of being sued for offending someone, or by someone who broke into your home and slipped. An episode of Supergirl last season shows this attitude perfectly.

Now, I know this is just a TV show, and it’s over-dramatic so as to make for good TV, but it’s not really that far off. In that scene, two idiots are slamming into each other, at high speed, headed for a group of children. When Supergirl stops them, the one we see get out of his car is upset “she totaled car” and ignores her “you almost totaled these kids.” He then, rather stupidly, tries to hit her, and she easily stops him, and puts him in a classic PD hold. He’s not injured, and likely only in discomfort, and not actual pain, but people instantly start to get mad at her for “hurting him” or “abusing her powers.” So, here’s the question, why the attitude of “I can do whatever I want, I cannot be held responsible for anything I do, and if you stop me from hurting someone else, you’re the bad guy?” It’s been growing since the mid to late 1990’s, and now has reached the point where people destroy businesses and cars, and attack people, simply because their candidate lost an election. Add to this, Trump, on 60 Minutes, flat out said to stop it, but Hillary has been silent about the riots after she didn’t get elected. We need a swift return to logic and rational thoughts, and sadly, the only real way is to just step in and force a change. Universities that offer “safe spaces” where students are given snacks, coloring books, play-do or Lego, because they need to “recover from the trauma” of their candidate not winning, well, they need to see a swift decline in enrollment, and donations dry up. If they’re a state school, then they need to be investigated and possibly have state money withdrawn for not using it to TEACH COLLEGE CLASSES! People rioting, destroying property and attacking others, simply, NEED TO BE ARRESTED, CHARGED, TRIED AND JAILED FOR THEIR CRIMES! They’ll bitch and moan in court that they’re “just expressing their feelings,” and they’ll ignore the question about what they’d do if someone destroyed their business or car, or harmed them physically while “expressing their feelings,” because naturally, they can do whatever they want, and you can only do what they tell you to. It’s the same issue as when you ask them “what would you say if Hillary had won and Trump supporters were rioting, burning businesses and cars, and so on?” They give you a blank look, or worse, tell you “that wouldn’t happen because Hillary should have won.” They firmly believe they have a right to destroy what isn’t theirs, to attack people, and also that had the election gone the other way, everyone would be happy. This is no longer a willful mindset, but a mental disease! They’re incapable of even considering others, they firmly believe that they have a right to destroy what isn’t theirs, and all because, in this case, the election didn’t go their way. When you point out that, just because they’re mad, they can’t just “make the electoral college go away,” you’re suddenly “attacking them,” or “denying their rights.” George Washington and Thomas Jefferson could rise from the grave, hand out cookies and milk, then say that same thing, and it would be a “right wing plot to silence and subjugate the country.”

Can you see why I weep for the future?

More of the same from the “tolerant” left

Imagine just what the outcry would be had this happened in 2008. What if the Bush White House had said Obama seemed surprised at the scope of the job, or that he didn’t know all positions would need to be replaced, only to have proof his people had posted listings of all jobs before the meeting. Naturally, it would be the “evil, racist GOP, just trying to make Obama look bad.” But, when Obama does it, it’s “an oversight” or “he didn’t understand” what Trump was saying and mistook him. The only thing worse that this happening is that it’s being swept under the rug and ignored by the vast majority of the media. When it’s pointed out as blatantly false, they just shrug and talk about something else. Not a peep about how they were wrong, and if people keep talking about it, they’re “trying to harm Obama’s administration by spreading lies.” So sorry folks, but I am not going to stay quiet, and I’m not saying this because Obama is black, but because he is a horrible President, but then again, I’m white, so instantly, I’m racist and have been from birth, and will be no matter what I do. When will we start demanding the media stop pandering to the DNC?


Next, what if this had been said during the Katrina aftermath about the people in New Orleans? The person saying it would be lynched at dawn, but when Symone Sanders said “Oh my goodness, poor white people” in response to being asked about a man PULLED FROM HIS CAR AND BEATEN, it’s ignored. These are NOT protests, they’re violent riots, destroying property and hurting people. Why is it these are called “protests” and people who calmly and peacefully protest against planned parenthood are “bigots who are trying to kill women?” The simple answer, it doesn’t fit the narrative of “the people wanted Hillary and are just expressing their grief.” The DNC is going to hide this all and paint everything as the GOP’s fault, and of course the “racist, sexist, homophobic, Trump supporters,” in an effort to get people on board the “give it to Hillary” movement. What’s going to happen when people are arrested and charged with assault, or worse? How long before the ACLU shows up to “defend the distraught citizens?”


Finally, another celeb seems hell bent on destroying her career, and she’ll no doubt blame everyone but herself for it. It seems Wanda Sykes decided to go on a political rant during her show, and was booed by the crowd. Did she change gears and go on with something else? No, she began insulting the crowd, then gave the crowd the middle finger and left. I wonder what the response will be when someone demands a refund? Will they be “publicly outed as a racist” or will the refund for a comedy show that was not at all that, be given? I guess we’ll see, but until people finally wake up and start “voting with their wallet,” meaning DON’T SPEND MONEY TO SEE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS, we won’t see any change. Comedians will use shows where people pay to laugh as a political pulpit, and if people complain, well, they’re just stupid and should be treated as such.


But, enough from me, what do you say?

Society today passed “stranger” than fiction long ago

I really wish this was a satirical piece, but it’s not as far as I can tell. It seems that the abortion industry is dead set to force into law that an unborn child is not human, that only the act of being born makes one human. As we all know, this is the basis for their argument that abortion should be completely unregulated and fully funded by tax dollars, as they apparently can’t get private donors to pony up. We’ve heard the screaming for years, portraying anyone who disagrees as a backward idiot, often trying to get this done publicly. I am not going to shy away or hide the fact that I am a Christian, and in fact, to force that is actually a violation of the First Amendment, unlike those where a student dared to pray at lunch, or a teacher wore a cross pendant. Now, they’re attacking parents who want to bury their miscarried child, screaming that it’s not a person, just a “product of conception” and thus, painting those who believe the child to have been a person as hysterical, idiots, over-emotional, etc.

This is precisely what we must fight, on all issues. I believe abortion is murder, and I will not change that belief. But, unlike many in my family and circle of friends, I believe in as small a government as possible, meaning this would be a decision between a Doctor and his/her patient. Do I wish it wasn’t done, absolutely, and that is why I vote for candidates who will hold Planned Parenthood responsible for all of their wrongs, and for those who will at least refuse to expand funding, just as those arguing against my beliefs are free to vote for whom they wish. The problem comes in when the people screaming about how conservatives want to “force religion on them” start forcing atheism on everyone else. I can already hear people screaming that “no one is forcing you to be an atheist” but in many ways that is precisely what’s happening. No, I’m not being forced to leave my church and officially announce I’m an atheist, but I am being forced, more and more, to hide my faith in public. I’ve so far only had one experience, but being shouted at in a restaurant for praying over my food is more than enough to get me angry. Short version, I went to Cracker Barrell for lunch, and when I got my food, I prayed over it as I do at meals. Another diner crossed through the center section to get to me, shouting about how I “can’t force religion on others” and other bull. I’m not a confrontational person, but I wasn’t going to sit and take that, so I pointed out that the man had to turn around and lean around a wall to see me, so he must have been purposely looking, to which he just sputtered. I then told him to leave me alone and I’d do the same, but I would not deny my faith. He yelled more, until the manager came over, and the idiot demanded I be thrown out for “forcing others to observe a religious activity,” although the manager did refuse and comped my meal. But this is the same as being told we cannot treat the remains of miscarried/aborted children as humans.

It’s very simple, if we don’t stand up and tell the world we will not be silenced, we will not be forced into hiding, and will not be ashamed of our faith, we will take a much faster path toward the world where Christians and others who don’t follow the “authorized religion” will be killed. Many will scoff at this, and will just repeat that “religion is just a crutch” and “no one will ever be killed for their faith” right up until that happens the first time. Then? They’ll happily accept that the person killed was a criminal and a danger to society as a whole, as are all others like him, ignoring their own history of denying it could ever happen, and instead turning in those they know. We have to start the fight for sanity in the world somewhere, and I’ve chosen to start here. Will you fight? What will you fight for? Or, will you just lay back and let the world burn around you?

It wouldn’t be a Monday without wanting to slap people

To start off, it seems that SNL is dead set to follow Hillary into obscurity. After the election, and while countless liberals run for their safe spaces, tweet their disbelief, or demand America just give them what they want, SNL had Kate McKinnon singing the late Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and crying. I never knew much about Cohen, but from the response, I’d guess he wouldn’t like his music associated with a criminal not getting what she wants. I remember growing up in the 1980’s and loving SNL. Even as the shift to the left started, and we saw far more raunchy jokes, digs at the GOP outweigh even an unkind word about the DNC, it was still funny. Now though, it’s just like the rest of NBC, CNN and so many other networks, an open shill for Hillary and the rest of the DNC. While I can hope their ratings will show that people don’t agree, I’m not holding my breath, as I really don’t want to see SNL end, just go back to comedy for comedy’s sake, and leave politics to the news pundits.


Moving on, if you thought we were rid of Michael Dukakis in 1988, you’d be wrong. Now, he’s declaring war on the Electoral College. Unlike many of the others doing this, at least he’s demanding it be undone legally, rather than the many people tweeting or just screaming for the Electors to go against the results and just hand the White House to Hillary. Funny isn’t it, that when their candidate wins, it’s “they won, it’s how the system works” but when they lose, it’s time to demand people just do as they say, change everything, tear down the “broken system.” I’m not going to try to claim I didn’t take to my blog, or Facebook, or another medium to express my “displeasure” with either of Obama’s wins, as I firmly believe the man to be seeking the destruction of the United States. Ignoring that I believe him to not be a Natural Born citizen, we have quotes from him that he wants to “fundamentally change” the country, while Michelle is on record as saying that during his time in office was the first time she was proud of America. She’s not a young girl, so that literally means that until she became First Lady, she was never proud to be an American. I’m not going to even suggest that Trump is perfect or blameless in his life, but he is far more American that Obama will ever be. As for the Electoral College, I’m going to give you a short description of this institution. Most people see the map showing the states and see that California went blue, but it didn’t. LA and San Fransisco, and the very few other cities that are extremely densely populated turned the state blue. Yes, a handful of cities/counties are able to control the rest of the state’s vote. What this means, is that if you look at the map by county, the country is far more red than blue. Yes, there are more people that voted for Hillary, but this is the point of the Electoral College, it prevents a population center from controlling more than their state. Yes, there are writings from the founders that hint that they didn’t trust the average voter, and set up the E.C., and yes, it may be time to end that institution, but do it legally. This would be a change to the Constitution, which requires a Constitutional Convention. This, like the Second Amendment, can’t “just be changed” because someone doesn’t like them. This is one of the reasons Hillary did so horribly in some states, as people are very much going to protect their rights, and she flat out said she’d use an Executive Order with regards to the Second Amendment. In layman’s terms, she said she’d just issue an order to make owning guns far more difficult, if not illegal, for private citizens. Let’s put that another way. Let’s say that a candidate said they’d use Executive Orders to “fix” the First Amendment. Would you be upset that they want to remove your right to free speech, or assembly, or to force the press to report as the government dictates (openly, as opposed to CNN and the others that march to the DNC’s tune?) So, put that way, much like the Second, it can’t “just be changed” or done away with. If you are that serious about it, call for a Constitutional Convention, get the States there, and DO IT RIGHT!


Finally, is anyone surprised that Sweden is blaming gender equality for a massive SNAFU after their first big snow of the year. Recently, a policy (law?) requires sidewalks to be cleared before roads, to allow for “gender equality” because women walk more, and men are “over represented” among drivers. Naturally, this caused a massive problem, as no one could drive, so businesses and schools were closed, greatly impacting everyone. Naturally, it’s not because the roads were to be cleared last, it’s “a lack of gender-equality” in snow clearing that caused it. Now, I’m all for treating women and men equally, but I have to call this what it is, an act of complete idiocy. If a snow storm is bad enough that, when the roads aren’t cleared, no one can drive, is anyone really going to go out other than in their car? I realize I’m just a dumb Texan, and our “cold” is a warm summer day to someone in Stockholm in the winter, but this just seems to make sense. First clear the roads, and if you must, send out the walkway clearing crews right behind them, because guess what, THEY HAVE TO GET THEIR TO CLEAR THEM! Yes, I know the world isn’t perfect, and yes, discrimination still happens, be it based on race, sex, or any of a number of things people are biased about. But, to institute policies like this is just insane! We’ve seen this in other places, where policies are put in place to “ensure equality” only to have them cause far more problems, or be attacked just as vehemently. The true solution is to just ignore the whiners until they go away or grow up. A good example of this is a company I worked for in 2003/2004, and their hiring policy. The application has no mention of sex, gender, race, religion, etc, and any applicant that lists any of those items anywhere else is summarily rejected. The next two rounds (interviews) are entirely automated, and not only don’t mention race/sex/gender/religion/etc, in these, it’s impossible to list them as the “interviews” are done via a touch tone phone. Only in round 4 (application, interview, interview, round 4) are your race/gender/sex known, as only then do you meet someone in person. Even with this in place, they’ve been sued for not hiring someone because they’re black, or female, or gay, or what have you. Granted, they win each time, because they can show that those people were never interviewed by a person, but filtered out by the automated system. Much like the people in Missouri screaming that the Fire Department test is racist because they failed it, ignoring that very few people pass that test. I’m sorry, but we have to stop pandering to these people and doing stupid stuff like Sweden did, or we’re just going to see the world collapse and anarchy will take over. But, what do I know, I’m only a History Teacher from Texas, I didn’t get a Masters in Women’s Studies from Berkley, so I don’t know anything about politics, do I?


Enough from me, what do you think?

America after Tuesday, and so far nothing has blown up

Tuesday night saw something happen that a great many people are still in shock over. Hillary Clinton was not elected President of the United States, Donald Trump was. Within hours there were videos from tearful celebrities bemoaning the tragedy, or youtubers screaming they were going to kill themselves, or saying they were having a heart attack. Today, students are shown on video being consoled, having had classes cancelled because their candidate not being selected is traumatic. I hate to think about them later in life, when they don’t get the job they “deserve” or when they are forced to pay bills, or the like. We’ve seen tweets demanding people beg their states Electors to change their vote, which had the situation been reversed, they’d be screaming that “Hillary won the Electoral College, let it go, you lost.” There are people repeating “she won the popular vote” just as we saw in 2000, but they quickly forget that they would be the first to demand someone be arrested and made to publicly flog themselves and apologize, for doing the same thing.

Yes, there have been incidents where “Trump supporters,” and put that in quotation marks because anyone acting like this will be listed as one, regardless of who they did or would have voted for, of people being told they’ll be deported, or the like, and that is not acceptable to me. President Elect Trump NEVER said he would deport all immigrants, nor did he saw he would look at Citizens or legal residents of Hispanic or Muslim heritage in that way. What he said is he intends to work to stop ILLEGAL immigration, and to deport those here ILLEGALLY. Naturally, this doesn’t fit the “he’s a horrible, racist, sexist, pig” narrative, so the media spins it however they want, and of course, the left laps it up. What upsets me a bit is how the incidents of idiots displaying their racism or another quality that should be kept hidden are all over the news, but the complete silence about the “open letters” all but ordering people to vote for Hillary, or the many celebs who threatened to leave if he won. If you want a better America, start with the media, until they’re at least forced to just be honest, let alone stop the DNC bias, we will continue down this horrifying path. Oh, and just as we’ve seen since before the primaries, those “outraged citizens” protesting, well, they may not be what they seem. Click here for story

Where do we go from here? Honestly, we go on as we have for the last 8 years. The media is trying to spin this as the world is ending, we’re all headed for Auschwitz or Buchenwald, and Trump will be the second coming of Hitler, which is not true. For most of the day to day things each of us face, nothing will change. We are not going to see troops in our streets, dragging people off to be deported. The celebrities who swore they’d leave the country forever if he won will stay and keep making millions from the very people they insult by saying that, and life will go on. No, Gay Marriage will not become a crime worthy of being hanged at dawn, and the ACA won’t just go POOF and vanish. I honestly hope that we get a new SCOTUS Justice who will not try to legislate from the bench, but truly will just interpret the law, and rule on if that law is Constitutional or not, but we can’t say for sure until that person is in place. As for the ACA, as many people as are covered, it won’t be just yanked away, but I do hope the requirement to select a plan or be heavily fined will be removed. Before you get up in arms over “everyone should be covered,” consider this. My mother was made to select an ACA plan until her Medicare benefits kicked in last year. So, she selected one, and started looking for a Doctor. Guess what, NO DOCTOR WITHIN 100 MILES WOULD TAKE HER. So, she’s legally required to have that plan, to pay for, AND IT’S COMPLETELY USELESS! Sure, have a marketplace where people can get health care that they otherwise couldn’t, but requiring it, when not everyone can use those plans is theft, pure and simple.

Hillary will not be arrested and jailed, and honestly, I don’t think the FBI will really try too hard to continue the investigation. Personally, I think they should, because she broke the law and badly mishandled confidential information. WikiLeaks has never (so far) released false information, the media didn’t like that Hillary was being shown to be far more unfit that we ever thought, but we’re told it shouldn’t matter, and to focus on how bad Trump is because he saw something mean more than a decade ago. Are you seeing the real problem yet? It’s not the DNC or GOP, they’ve been the way they are for decades, and although we need to fix this and I say we need to get rid of parties all together, the real problem is the media. We’ve known for a while that many of the networks are owned by a very few corporations, and thus, despite the appearance of being independent, they’re all told what to do by the same person. The Clintons are also heavily connected to News Corp, so is it any surprise that they’d paint her as the second coming of Christ and Trump as worse than the devil?

No, he isn’t out to get the LGBT community, no he isn’t out to get the Mexicans or Muslims. What he is, is a man who wants to help American Citizens, which means ILLEGAL immigration must be stopped, and LEGAL immigration encouraged. He likely will weigh in on the bathroom issue, and he’ll be attacked for “forcing innocent teens into danger,” because he will most likely come down on the same side that I personally stand on. Just because you “identify” as a man or as a woman, does not change the fact that biologically you’re not. Restrooms and Locker Rooms are not a place for someone of one sex to be around those of the other. The media is going to have a sad, likely shaking teen on camera saying they don’t feel like they should go to the restroom because they’re really not a girl, or the like. Sadly, what this does, is open the world up to have people “identify” as a girl, just to use the ladies room, and there WILL be attacks and rapes. Naturally, that person will be a horrible person, a monster, but they’ll also be a “social warrior trying to undo progress by making things look dangerous when they really aren’t.” We saw from the beginning that this wasn’t about equality or people feeling uncomfortable or unsafe using the restroom for their sex, it was about forcing others to bend and cave. Schools first offered gender neutral bathrooms, single occupant bathrooms to be exact, and that was shot down as “forcing them to be outed by using them.” When it started to become obvious that parents cared enough about their children to fight them on this, they changed tactics. We soon saw school boards meeting in secret to just make it happen, but of course, that didn’t last. Students were told to not tell their parents, so of course some did, and parents were outraged, as they should be. Next, the President sent a letter of “advice” with thinly veiled threats about federal funding. So, this was never about “making sure students felt safe,” it was about forcing the vast majority of the U.S. to cave and bow to the will of a HUGE minority.

I’ve ranted and rambled here for long enough, but I can’t sit and watch as I, and people I count friends are branded bigots or racists or sexists, simply because we didn’t bend over and do what people demanded we do. We, just like every other voter, voted for the candidate we felt we should vote for. Yes, there have been cries to end the Electoral College, or to call your E.C. representative and beg them to vote Hillary despite the results. Remember, had Hillary won and these things happened, the people saying that would be decried as hateful, bad losers, and so on. We are not going to see the Electoral College just go away, that is something that will take a MASSIVE amount of work. Just as Hillary was blowing smoke or promising something horribly un-Constitutional when she promised to “make gun control happen.” We have the Constitution for a reason, and that reason is to ensure that the people elected to serve aren’t able to just make things happen. It’s worked for 240 years, but naturally, when the left sees that screaming about “the children” or ranting that “guns are evil” doesn’t magically mean that all firearms are just POOF gone, they suddenly don’t care about the process, but when I suggest that the ACA is horribly flawed and must be done away with and something else put in its place, I get the “it’s law, you can’t just get rid of it, there’s a process.” You can’t have it both ways, you can’t say the Electoral College should be respected when you win, and should be gone when you lose. You can’t just make things happen that you want, and then use “the process” to protect things you want kept.

We need maturity at all levels, from the student to the President, and until that happens, we’re going to see the situation get FAR WORSE, and may not get better after that. Hillary, Obama and Trump have all called for America to come together, yet we still hear about riots, about people blocking highways, because their candidate didn’t win. I have no doubt that had Hillary won, and I simply stood somewhere with a “Pray for America, we need it more now” sign, I’d likely be attacked or worse, but when she loses, her supporters have a “right” to “express themselves” by BLOCKING TRAFFIC AND DEFACING BUILDINGS. This is precisely what safe spaces and trigger warnings have gotten us. Students are “traumatized” by seeing Trump 2016 written in chalk on a sidewalk, but when that happens, they’re “exercising their rights” when they break the law. They’re so traumatized by their candidate losing that they threaten to kill themselves. How will they ever survive the real world? Unless they stay in school forever, or get all the way to PhD and start teaching their useless topic, they are in for a rude awakening when they can’t call in to work because the mean man won the election, they can’t go home early from work because they saw a t-shirt for the other candidate on lunch. Meetings don’t come with trigger warnings, and when they complain to HR about their boss being “abusive” when he gives a warning about constant tardiness.

We’re in for a major shift in the world folks, and while we’ve got 4 years to try to reverse the trend, I don’t see much chance, and I am scared of what will happen when these special snowflakes get back into power. They will of course tell you (loudly and repeatedly) that they’re going to make sure everyone is equal, until in power, when white males are told to get out, and others who aren’t white males, but who disagree with the special flower people are told to follow. We’re on the downhill slope, the only question is do we walk, run, or slide down?
