donkey chompersIf it’s not from one extreme side, it’s from the other. Since her election to Congress, we have been forced to endure the socialist rantings of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Everyday she spouts off on a demand to change America into a progressive utopia that has worked so well in all the places it’s been tried (sarcasm emphasized).

Now, the world’s second richest man, Bill Gates, is crying us a river of guilt over his enormous wealth and telling us no one has the right to be that wealthy.

It’s easier for me to understand AOC’s envy-based coveting of the successes of capitalism. She sure seems to be a low IQ loser whose only chance at a decent paying job was to become a politician.

Gates‘ whining remorse comes from a man who used that very capitalism to succeed beyond his wildest dreams and now suffers from BS, “billionaire shame”. I call bull shit.

There is however a simple solution to these two chuckleheads.  Let’s let AOC keep lecturing us on why we must ban airplanes and abandon our cars. Even the looniest of the Left will eventually shut her down because she’s sucking too much of their oxygen out of their room.

And Bill?  My solution is really a win-win here.  Since your money is burning a hole in your soul, unburden yourself and let it burn a hole in my pocket.  Make that check out to Fritz Breland, My New Utopia, USA.

 

Liberals are “Green Book” With Envy January 12, 2019

Liberals are simply insane. I pray that this insanity will be their ultimate demise but that is for another post.

I just saw “Green Book”. It’s a period piece that tells the story of a white, Italian mobster wanna-be who’s hired to drive and protect a black musician while on a concert tour of the deep south.  The movie is based on the true story of pianist Don Shirley’s eight- week concert tour leading up to Christmas in 1962.

I had never heard of Shirley or the Green Book, an actual publication for blacks, that advertised where it was safe for them to eat and sleep in towns throughout the segregated South.

The movie begins by establishing the characters through well-crafted scenes and dialogue. Both characters are revealed to be deeply flawed but on such different levels.  Short of doing a full-blown movie review let me just say when a movie can enrage me, make me laugh and force a tear all inside 130 minutes, it was well worth the price of admission. But it was far better than that. (and the musical scenes were awesome!)

The movie’s subject touched the third rail in American culture, racism. Through this exquisitely acted feature, the tragedy of racism was exposed through the eyes of both its victims. That has set off the Libs in an attempt to destroy this movie from achieving the accolades that would corrupt their narrative.

From the movie trailer: Viggo Mortenson plays Tony Lip, a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx. Mahershala Ali plays Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class African-American pianist in need of a driver and protection. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.

At the end of the movie (which BTW has a very “It’s A Wonderful Life” feel) we are refreshed by the knowledge that while white America sinned horribly against black America in the past, like Tony Lip, her heart has changed. Unfortunately, there are those who don’t acknowledge that.  

To reward “Green Book” with an Oscar will be rewarding what is good with humanity.

To ignore “Green Book” will be to continue hating and living with a closed heart.

An Open Letter To Mitt Romney January 2, 2019

Hey Mitt, you’re a loser. Just shut your pie hole.

You lost to Obama and Trump kicked your ass and became President.

So now you got yourself a new gig as the junior senator from Utah and it’s time to start spouting off against the President?  Your anti-Donald Trump op-ed was an act of ‘calculated political treachery’ against my President and the conservatism I stand for.

You attack the President’s character as if this was the first time for you to see how he rolls.  Don’t you remember how he spanked you during the 2018 primary and showed America he doesn’t take prisoners?

I admit I was excited when you ran in 2012 against Obama. Not so much about your political skills but as you weren’t Obama.  I went to see your rally at the convention center in West Palm Beach.  You were charming and said all the right things—I thought you had what it takes to win and I voted for you. But you lost because you underestimated your adversary. You needed a killer instinct to defeat Obama and his media propagandists. You needed to be like Trump.

I don’t want gentile Mr. Romney. I want a General Sherman marching his way to victory and not afraid to burn down anything in his way. You establishment Republicans will always lose because it’s in your DNA to do so.  You don’t have the stomach to destroy your enemies. You’re happy to play the power sharing game where each side sits for a spell and then swaps spots.  Unfortunately, the Left has no desire to play that game anymore Mitt. They are playing for keeps; to destroy capitalism.

So you’re angling to primary the President in 2020. You think you have the grace and charm, the gravitas to be the President you think America wants?  You’re wrong. Only weak minds will follow you—the same people who think getting a participation trophy is more important than actually winning.

Do yourself and America a favor and stay holed up in Utah with your mouth closed until 2024.

I don’t care what my neighbors think, I don’t care what other countries think and I certainly don’t care what you think about our President. He is doing what needs to be done to save this country from the evils of Socialism.

And if you do decide to challenge the President in 2020, just be prepared to  frequently change those Mormon underwear.

It’s Hard To Be Humble When You Are As Great As We Are September 14, 2018

Ok, a short conversation with a dear friend motivated me to this.

Donald Trump is not a very nice person. He has lived a less than angelic life. As I wrote before the election, I pondered if America was ready for his unabashed ego and take no prisoners style. With two years under his belt it is clear to see Donald Trump is the only person who could have started the unraveling of the political status quo that has hijacked my America. For the most part, I knew what I was getting when I voted for Donald Trump. I admit he has surprised me both positively and negatively, however I believe Donald Trump has my best interests at heart. I know they are not the best interests of liberals. I like that.  I am a capitalist who believes in personal responsibility. I want to be wealthy like Donald Trump. I want to live in a country where anyone can become wealthy despite their station in life. I do not want to share my wealth with undeserving, envious, lazy people. I will always help those whose circumstances are less than mine through no fault of their own.

Because of my beliefs I have many enemies: liberals, progressives, socialists, globalists.

I don’t care what those people think of me. I don’t care what the rest of the world thinks about America. Deep down they all want to be Americans or at least live like us.

Yes, I am blessed to have been born American. I believe being an American makes me better than the rest of the world. Being the best brings a responsibility to protect and uphold the values that make us the best. Donald Trump is doing that and that is why I support him.

Personal Responsibility September 13, 2018

I am now again moved to speak my mind about the events shaping my world.

The United States is more polarized than ever before. Two distinct philosophies are diametrically opposed and facing off daily. Their positions color their actions towards every area in our society and the divide is growing.

When our country was founded the innate tenants of Capitalism were rooted in the very souls of the men and women who sought to break free from a King who despotically ruled their lives. Given the opportunity to freely make a ‘go of it’ without oppression or subjugation, our forefathers set into motion a way of life that has proved to be the best system yet devised. They were willing to codify that system in documents that put every man’s life, whose name was attached, squarely in jeopardy.

Everything about the Declaration of Independence and Constitution is about allowing those who live under its words a freedom to pursue a path of life, liberty and a pursuit of happiness free of interference from his government or his fellow man.  This system is ultimately based on personal responsibility and that is where the divide begins.

One group has chosen to identify as victims—somehow at an immediate disadvantage to the other. They perceive they cannot compete based on a system that allows the individual to rise to whatever level of success they desire. These people must therefore change the system to allow for their success. That change includes restricting the free opportunities that are available to everyone and creating rules and regulations that hope to create an ‘even playing field’.  That even playing field has become Socialism. A world in which no one can be more successful than another (except for the people running it). A world where personal responsibility, entrepreneurship and self-drive are crushed in favor of a shared collective.

Socialism destroys incentive. The incentive to innovate, to risk capital with the opportunity for financial reward and the incentive for personal growth through free expression. Socialism destroys the individual. Socialism destroys.

The other group revels in personal responsibility. They see it as a fundamental expression borne from the Constitution. Their right to pursue that which is enumerated in that document is their responsibility. They get to decide how or if they choose to take advantage of those rights. They also know they are responsible for whatever results from their actions or non-actions.

Some say putting the onus of responsibility on the individual is unfair as some have advantages others do not. I would agree that some are born into situations that give them less challenges to realizing whatever level of personal achievement they seek. From the earliest days someone was born into this world with more than his neighbor and yet humankind has flourished. As long as the system of allowing anyone to reap the fruits of personal responsibility is in place perceived birthright advantage is just that, perceived.

My social Darwinism view puts me squarely in the personal responsibility camp. I have been called coldhearted and mean to my face and who knows what behind it.  To my defense I do believe to those much given, much is expected and for those souls born into distress through no fault of there own (physical and mental deficiencies) I wholeheartedly support providing help. I do not support assisting those whose envious and covetous ways seek to avoid personal responsibility for their own success.

Like my forefathers before me who, by their signatures on the Declaration of Independence, signed their own death warrants had they been captured, I too will fight, to the death if need be, to preserve Capitalism, personal responsibility and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
