Is it really Trump?

Let me get this off my chest. Trump is not my first choice.  I’ll take him any day over Crazy Bernie or Heartless Hillary any day.  The GOPe (e = establishment) is going to do everything they can to dump Trump. Create stories, disqualify some of his delegates or anything else they can to create a contested convention. Then bribe, coerce or trick the delegates into nominating a Romney, Ryan or some other loser. If that fails, I’m almost certain that they will run a third party candidate. I know, I know, it can’t win. They know it as well. They just don’t care. They want to retain their wealth and power. They don’t really care who is running the show or about the country as long as they can keep their perks. If Trump is true to his word he will dry up many programs and unneeded departments.

Take the Department of Energy. This boondoggle was created in 1977 by the second-worst president, Jimmy Carter. The objective was to make the US less dependent on foreign energy. That has not worked out so well. Last year the budget was almost thirty billion dollars. The department had around 16,000 permanent employees and 100,000 contract workers. They wasted billions on “renewable” energy companies that went bust after discovering that it didn’t work well enough to power Moochele’s vibrator. They are killing fossil fuel companies left and right. Peabody Coal is the latest victim. They applied for chapter 11. This was due to onerous regulation and confiscatory taxes.


OK, now guess how many children the Department of Education educated. 10 million? 1 million? A thousand? How about ZERO? That’s the right answer. The department is unconstitutional and all they have done is regulate the crap out of the education system. BTW they had a budget of 69 billion dollars in 2015. Check out this article: http://www.freedomworks.org/content/abolishing-department-education-right-thing-do


These two departments are just to ripe for abolishment.


At the end of 2015 there were 81,611 pages of federal regulations. Understand these are NOT laws that have been voted on and passed by congress. These are regulations dreamed up and written down by nameless and faceless bureaucrats, sometimes at the behest of crooked politicians in order to punish one business or to help another by suppressing another. (Like the coal industry.) Much of the time they are simply written to justify a department’s existence or to expand itself. Here is an interesting article: http://thehill.com/regulation/administration/264456-2015-was-record-year-for-federal-regulation-group-says Before Ted Cruz dropped out, both he and Trump have said they will immediately begin to eliminate many of these regulations and by doing so, shrink the departments they were created by.

But I digress. The point of this rant is to highlight the duplicity of our elected scum, I mean politicians. Many of those Congressmen and women were elected on the promise to do something about the corruption and waste. As soon as they got a taste of the money and power their tune changed. They don’t want a Trump or Cruz who will shame them into doing something. There are bills languishing in committees that address many of these problems, yet our brave pols won’t bring them up for a vote, let alone pass them. They say, ‘Obama will just veto them.’ Well, make him veto the bills! Let him be responsible for the consequences. Trump won’t veto the bills and he will be expecting them on his desk. So what’s your excuse now?

 


A Harley rider is going by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage.

Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole.’

The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’

The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page…

So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’

The biker replies, ‘I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.’

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH

That pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.
