You've Been Had!

A bill of goods. That is what this nation has been sold by the person of the current President of the US. We've been deceived, swindled, and taken advantage of by the administration as pledge after pledge has been negated by the actions taken by this President and his henchmen. And yet, his loyal followers hold out their bowls, and plead, "Please, sir, may I have some more?"   How have we been deceived? Let's examine a few areas where the actions of the President after inauguration are in complete contradiction to the pledges made during the campaign. First, let's tackle the series of statements he made about the obscene influence of Goldman Sachs upon his opponents in the primary and general election. In January 2016, Donald Trump declared Ted Cruz to be under the control of Goldman Sachs, due to a million dollar loan Cruz had obta…

SUPPORT GOD AND NOT TYRANNY

I see some of the hateful comments from many brainwashed Nazi American traitors who blindly worship hired killers who invade and destroy others lands based on greed from bankers who bribe our corrupted politicians.

The Joys of Jury Duty

There are at least two places you can go to that puts you fully in touch with your communities: The DMV, and Jury Duty. Of the two, I’d say that Jury Duty gets you much closer, because that includes all of the retards and patricians that are either too stupid and fucked-up to legally drive, or…

I hear all this rubbish about us being Anglo-Saxon as if we are an homogenous race apart from Europe and the rest of the world. It is simply not true. I believe people do not really know what they are talking about.   We British are a mixture of races – mainly European but…

Why GE is in such bad shape

The reason GE is in such bad shape is that Immelt was the anti-Welch.  There was a LACK of focus on being #1 or #2 in the market place after Welch left, and of course you can judge your "markets" wrongly but that is not what has happened.  GE and other major companies have rigorous ways to…

Sexual Players and Inappropriate Advances.

  In light of the recent rash of allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviors of celebrities, I want to bring up an angle that the various talking heads are steering away from: How does promiscuity play into this issue?   Back in my oilpatch days, I was away from home a lot. I just needed…

The progressives' strategy including its Alinsky tactics have been successful.  They have patiently and consistently been able to assume leadership (ownership?) of the education and communication institutions of America.  Familiarity with, much less appreciation of, the history and values …

The Disaster of What Basic Income Would Become

Although maybe well meaning by some, the premise of Guaranteed Basic Income would be nothing short of a disaster.  Currently in the US we already have such a program called Welfare.  While yes Welfare has prevented things like mass starvation it has built and reinforced generational povert…

It is the Mad Moon

Christ Wants to Shatter Our Delusions

I am living in a fantasy when I view life as it circles around me. As believers, we sing and recite prayers that proclaim that God is the centre of all but our psychological makeup screams the exact opposite. I view people, events, history and yes even God through my eyes, judging what is right, tru…

Postmodern Morality

I'm becoming more convinced that the vast majority of people need to believe in something bigger than themselves ... something bigger which proposes a deeper meaning to the biological question.  I find myself drawn to the same.  People desire to be defined by an external meaning -- a highe…

Say no, Moore
