Archive for the ‘Presidential Politics’ Category

I think one of the things that helped get The Donald elected is his “will do” attitude. That is a good quality for a president to have. So, now that he is President Elect he will have to address the illegal alien question.

The west coast is being overwhelmed by it. Our P.E. has mentioned the building of a wall along the border with Mexico as a containment measure. An acquaintance of mine, who is not a Trump fan, called it “the Great Wall of Trump”. I had to laugh but it did get me thinking.

Is it just me, or does the whole idea of a wall such as worked for ancient China sound really expensive now? I mean, I am glad the guy is not afraid to think big. This is a good thing. But he is after all, a wealthy man so cost may not seem like such an issue to him as it does to me, therefor, I thought up an alternative, after I got done laughing at my acquaintance.

I reason thusly – Issue every person who wants to emigrate from south of the border a green card, this will allow them to find work legally. Put their information in a database at Border Patrol. This database can be interfaced with the welfare rolls upon which the green card carriers will not be allowed to appear, having already a job. Do not, at any time, allow them to sign up for welfare, never, nada, at all. Not being citizens they cannot vote and they should not be issued driver’s licenses either. The green card will constitute their legal ID and make them a part of our bureaucracy. It would be issued upon showing proof of employment and a street address within the United States. We could even charge a small fee say 2% of the gross pay per paycheck for as long as the card is valid because we would have their employer information.

These good people are coming here to work, so let them work.. They are, after all, willing to do the manual labor that we now consider to be beneath us so they really aren’t competition in the job market. And if they work hard, earn citizenship, and raise their children here, those same children will also grow up to think manual labor is beneath them because that is what we teach in our schools. So you see, these illegals are actually filling a very necessary niche and one that will always be open.

Essentially then, I propose that instead of spending billions on a Great Wall, we incorporate illegal aliens into our bureaucracy, make them conditionally legal, refuse to enroll them on welfare,  and charge them a fee for working here. That would take care of the overtaxed welfare system and the “they don’t pay taxes” complaint. I mean really, if the whole point here is to slow a raging flood (of illegal aliens) down to a trickle, bureaucracy is certain to work better than bricks. In Farwell’s Modern Abridged Dictionary bureaucracy is defined as: a civil organization designed specifically to collect money efficiently and function as slowly as possible.

It says something very important about the men who are working to keep America honest that we avoided Hilary Clinton in this election. We did not just dodge a bullet here people, we have avoided a nuclear meltdown.

This has been one in the eye for both Hilary and the media. A message has been sent. The people of America are not stupid and the broadcast media has lost all credibility with them. The women of America are not stupid either. They saw Hilary for what she is. Right now, I am proud to be an American.

It is a truism that people get the sort of leaders they deserve. I will sleep much better knowing that the gods do not think we deserve Hilary Clinton. This also says something very important. Personally, I am not convinced that this came about through fate or even happenstance. It was a tremendous amount of work.

Great Job Everybody! Well Done.

Hilary Clinton is NOT a voice for the cause of righting women’s wrongs. The media hype behind her does NOT  reflect the will of thinking females in America and all their talking head noise is NOT going to change that fact.

Donald Trump made a very telling point when he asked where Hilary was during the public pillory of Monica Lewinsky. Her then husband, the President of the United States of America, used his position to get illicit sex from a subordinate. A female subordinate. Did we see Hilary take a stand against such a chauvinistic abuse of power? Did we hear one word from Hilary about the flagrant abuse of a female in the work place? Did Hilary have anything to say about her husband disrespecting women?

No.

Hilary’s posturing now about Donald Trump and his attitude about women is ludicrous in the extreme. Her refusal to stand for women in the work place then, when it was needed, automatically excludes her from being “ The President Elected By Women” now and viewed, suddenly and without reason, as an effective advocate for us.

I was just skimming the headlines on Yahoo news and came across the little fuss with Corey Booker, Mitt Romney’s corporate raiding practises, and the Obama campaign. Old Obeyme’s comments were so very like my own in my post entitled, FYI: Mitt Romney that I could swear his campaign people copied it word for word–almost. I haven’t been following this presidential race day by day but I have not heard this issue raised yet and certainly not in my own words so I am beginning to wonder.

Now you all know my views by now and if you don’t you can skim my posts on this subject. Both Obeyme and Romney are being backed by the same group. They have created a heads I win, tails you lose scenario by cheating Romney onto the Republican primary ticket through their dishonest manipulation of the Maine Republican Caucus. In much the same way, they got Obeyme into the White House in 2008. (They have all the under 25 year olds cell phone data and simply fed in about a million or four young voters who did not actually vote. Isn’t modern technology wonderful? Now the ballot box can be stuffed from the comfort of your own laptop–if you have access to the cell phone records of google or T-Mobile.)

In view of this odd coincidence, I will not be posting anything more about the presidential race. These two political imposters are neither one worth the price of a bullet and Obeyme certainly doesn’t need to be using my ideas for his own advancement. Now that the LGBT lobby has been allowed to pick the two major (supposedly opposing) players it won’t matter who gets in.

There is serious trouble ahead for our country, folks. But—I think we will be able to handle it when it  comes.

This really needs to be said although many may think it’s too late to do anything.

Mitt Romney was NOT supported by the Maine Republican caucus. The supposed head of the Republican caucus deliberately lied, miscounted, and manipulated the results in a way that brought a public outcry of censure in most  if not all of our major newspapers. The stories ran for about a day and then the Maine news collective dropped the subject like a hot rock, which it was, to the special interest owners.

The people of this state have repeatedly made their views on the subject of same-sex issues very plain–they do not support them in any way. It is time to mount a campaign with all our local representatives to bring this issue into the public eye and keep it there. The news media in this state does not represent the majority view and we all need to call them on to the carpet for it. Vagrants who have moved into southern Maine from Massachusetts do not represent the will of Maine’s people.

Maine has a lot of quiet money here, people who are not into the obvious consumer lifestyle. Why can’t we have a paper that prints the real opinions of the majority and will run a campaign for them on the same type of continuing basis that the GLAAD consortium has mounted?

Very short post this week. Actually, just two questions.

Question number one–

What is going on in Utah? I mean, who are these people? Utah and Mormonism are synonymous to most Americans. They have built up a squeaky clean public image for themselves and someone is using this to foist a Utah born and bred closet case onto the Republican party as presidential candidate. And then there is this Sister Wives thing going on. A small herd of smiling white women have chosen the stud animal male they wish to cover them when they’re in season and gaze happily into the camera as they self approve this behaviour. Evidently it is time we all got over the Osmond Brothers mentality of the past forty years(sorry Marie) and looked a little closer at this state and what it is attempting to export to the rest of us.

Question number two–

Why is Mitt Romney being billed now as a former Governor of Massachusetts?  A short public nod to his “Mormonism” when he first stuck his head out of his closet and then the media got really quiet about his “roots”. Mitt Romney is from Utah and a Mormon. I mean, did his handlers feel that running him through a term of office in Massachusetts would wash off enough Utah to make him smell nice for a Republican presidential run? The odors coming out of Utah these days are definitely not that of sanctity.

On the other hand, Newt Gingrich has been married three times but at least–not all at once. I wonder what his views on the “Sister Wives” thing would be.

Here is an item for the consideration of genuine conservatives and also those potential voters out there who are not enamored of any of the candidates, republican or democrat.

I have seen Mr. Romney portrayed as an astute and able businessman, conversant with the business world and better able to create jobs than any of the other candidates. Mr. Romney himself is especially vocal about these “qualities” and “talents” of his.

Now I have read a few pieces about the man, especially his association with the Bain Corporation. For those of you who have no knowledge of the working lexicon of the business world I will share what little I have and now looks like a good time for it.

A genuine businessman or woman builds a business. With talent,  good ideas, good ethics and good people skills. They either do this from the ground up, as in starting a business, or they take over from a retiring family member or fellow board person. In the latter case, other members of the board elect them to their position of leadership because they have shown abilities that will help the business to grow.

Then there are the “sharks” of the business world. They keep their eyes open for businesses that are not failing, bankrupt or in otherwise bad shape but are good, viable, going concerns that may have a vulnerability somewhere in their stock management that will allow what good business people all recognize as a “hostile takeover.” That means the new owners are not interested in running the business as is but are looking to sell off any liquifiable assets, fire a good portion of the people and make an instant cash killing in a short time. These particular types of sharks are known as “Corporate Raiders.”

Now, go back and reread some of the articles concerning Mr. Romney’s talents as used by the Bain Corporation. Mr. Wannabe President Romney is the textbook definition of the Corporate Raider. Do some research, it won’t hurt you. See if you can find out how many of the businesses Bain “restructured” were going bankrupt. You can’t make a large cash killing off of a bankrupt concern, creditors have first claim to all the assets. These predators of the business world only kill off the healthy.

How would you like him for President?
