JFK, BHO, & Cuba

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Watching MSNBC, Rachel Maddow played a clip of JFK about Cuba. I can never get enough of watching Kennedy. Can’t help it. I love the guy. Maddow was trying to make some left-wing point with the video, but I don’t even remember what it was.

There was Jack laying it out. He was saying that the divide between us and Cuba was because a cabal of conspirators had stolen the freedom of the Cuban people, and had then subjugated them to a foreign power, and as long as that was the case, nothing was possible. As soon as that was not the case, then everything was possible. He sounded like the most right-wing person in the current Presidential race in either party.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama is in Havana apologizing to the Castro brothers, on behalf of the United States, for being so mean to them for the past 50 years.

Nothing has changed in Cuba, but everything is possible anyway. That was Rachel’s point. Isn’t that wonderful?

Donald Trump is not Gandhi

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Donald Trump is not Gandhi. When he is attacked, he fights back. When organizations like moveon.org, supporters of Bernie Sanders, organize an attack intended to deprive Trump and his supporters of their first amendment right to free speech and freedom of assembly, when they attempt to disrupt and shut down Trump speeches and rallies, then Trump and his supporters have every right to defend themselves. The fact that the media, the Democrats, and even the other Republican candidates are all spinning this self defense as Trump being responsible for the violence directed against him, is remarkable.

I predict it will backfire. I for one do not want a President Gandhi. I want a President who fights back when we are attacked. I want a President who encourages Americans to stand up for themselves against terrorists and invaders.

It’s the Issues Stupid

Friday, March 4th, 2016

There is no mystery about why people vote for Donald Trump. They vote for him because they believe there is a chance that he might actually stop illegal immigration, bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., and either keep us out of foreign wars, or if that’s not possible, at least win them for a change.

People are not voting for Donald Trump because he is a crude, vulgar, blowhard. They vote for him in spite of his entertaining personality because they are desperate, because it is a certainty that none of the other bought and sold candidates will do anything they say they will do, except Bernie of course, who is wrong about everything.

The establishment hates Trump because they don’t control him and because he threatens cheap labor and globalism, and they will do anything to stop him. We are about to witness a well funded incredibly vicious campaign to destroy Donald Trump.

Will he be a great President? Nobody knows, but it looks to many like he’s the only chance we have.

Racist, Racist, Racist!

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Donald Trump is not a racist. I hope screaming racist is the plan, because it won’t work. If I were Donald Trump, I would not disavow anyone. I would say I want all the votes, racists, axe murderers, the KKK, the Black Panthers, the Clintons, criminals of every description, the saints and the sinners. I want all the votes. Let’s make America great again.

The Oscars

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

Most of my racist, homophobic, islamaphobic, xenophobic, sexist, and just generally bigoted fellow Republicans didn’t like the oscars at all. They objected to the continuous rant about race even though, for quite awhile now, black people have won more acting oscars than their share of the population. Indians, Asians, and Hispanics hardly ever win oscars, and nobody’s making a fuss about it. So there was that, and then all the usual suspects, glorification of homo and trans sexuality, the bogus rape epidemic, climate change alarmism, Leonardo DiCaprio whining about “corporate greed”, etc., etc.

Me, I just expect it. It’s Hollywood. Sure, it’s annoying and stupid, but Chis Rock was very funny, and even-handed in a Chris Rock kind of day. The man and woman on the street in Compton clips were hilarious. The pretty people were gorgeously dressed, there was good music, great movie clips. What’s not to like? It was a good show. I was entertained most of the time.

There’s an enormous amount of great acting, directing, writing going on these days. Who cares if they’re all a bunch of nitwit liberals. Hollywood has always been that way, with some exceptions, Reagan, Wayne, Kazan, Eastwood, James Woods, Jon Voight. Next year maybe they can get Trump to host, if he doesn’t consider it to be too far beneath the dignity of the President.
