Remember, remember, the 6th of November...

My Recent Posts

On November 6th, the United States of America has many elections for city councils, house of Representatives, the Senate, etc. Also, at the same time, the ENTIRE American federal government is run, and has been run for almost two years, by republicans- the Legislative branch, the Executive branch, and the Judicial branch.

 

Those who like what is happening to America will vote to keep those people who are running the show in, while those who don't like what America has become will vote them out.
 
I asked all my white, republican neighbors if they liked what they have seen from this republican administration. Almost all of them said they did. Coincidently, three of my neighbors lost their jobs because their employer decided to fire them. I asked all three of them why they deserved to get fired. They all said it was because Jose and company decided to work harder, longer, and for less money. "Dang!", I said. "Aren't you white republicans going to compete against those hardworking, work-for-less-money, get no benefits Joses? You just need to work three times as hard for five times as less money!"
 
They all said "Nope! We hate working hard to compete against other hardworking, dedicated, responsible workers!".
I will keep an eye on my lazy, poor, stupid, unmotivated white republican neighbors. Maybe I will even move away from these slovenly folks who contribute nothing to life.

 

p.s.  I just saw a shifty white male republican running down the street with some stolen copper wire...

TH-
Pretty sure i'm wasting my time, but i'll write it anyway.
 
Get used to it.  The Republicans have been a voice of sanity in America over the last 20-odd months, while the democrats have been either engaging in violent physical or verbal assaults on republicans who've done nothing but try to make their lives better(and are succeeding well beyond expectations).  Meanwhile, back at their cushy offices with they cushy jobs and perqs, the democrat "leaders" not only refuse to condemn the violence, but encourage it, and are in the process of embracing the worst form of governance ever known on this planet, socialism, directly responsible for well over 120million murders in the last century alone(they continue apace, especially in China, but S. Africa is also gearing up for mass slaughter - first, of the whites, then of each other).
 
This is why the democrats are going to lose - big - in less than 2 weeks, and Trump will be re-elected in 2020.  Americans despise socialism in large part, despite the infiltration of colleges by ChiComs, and vast numbers of legal (and illegal) immigrants ESCAPED socialism in their countries to come here, so will NEVER vote in favor of it in this land.  Such as these have up-close-and-personal experience, and never want to go under to that insanity again.
 
Maybe it's YOU that needs to go - get real, get appreciative, and get thankful.
 
Otherwise, you COULD end up in SF, and discover the reality of the discarded needles, urine and feces covering the streets, while you're heavily taxed and unable to afford housing...or much else.
Troll Hunter Added Oct 23, 2018 - 1:29pm
FP:  Thank you for your reply.  I'd like to correct a few mistakes you made, though.  First, the republicans are batsh*t motherf*cking crazy. Nazis killing nice Christian woman in Virginia, Proud Boys beating up citizens, the GOP doing NOTHING to help Americans out, etc.  
 
Secondly, Socialism didn't kill millions of people, crazy fascist dictators did.  And what's this about South Africa "gearing up" for a mass slaughter?  Are you whities going to try the "final solution" again?
 
Third, you are correct about high housing prices in the Bay Area.  I think it would be prudent of me to get a lot of welfare and to go on Section 8 housing, get on food stamps, get a Reaganphone, get free money, get free internet, and get free healthcare (although the VA already provides it, so I guess I don't need any more).   That way I can make a living.
 
Anyways, again, thank you for your response, and you're welcome for the corrections I gave you.

What can you say? You can point to the lunacy that has taken over the Republican party, and they will not recognize it. I wrote a post about how they have all become victims of the Stockholm Syndrome. And still, they persisted. They refuse to see the damage being done daily to this nation by the thought non-process of this wrecking ball currently inhabiting the White House. We can sincerely hope that this nation comes to its senses and repudiates this quivering mass of thin-skinned narcissism in two weeks.

FacePalm Added Oct 23, 2018 - 2:52pm
TH-
Let me correct your "corrections."
First, the RW nuts in Charlottesville were "led" by a guy who 6 months previously was a fervent D'OhBama supporter - can you say "false flag" or "set-up"?  Esp. since the police were not only ordered to stand down, but deliberately drove the alleged "right-wing" nuts into the teeth of Antifa - yeah, no chance of anything bad happening THERE, right?  At last count, however, there were well over 600 documented instances of left-wing attacks on innocent republicans or independents or libertarians which resulted in physical injury.  You can point to ONE...and that is very doubtful, except for the guy who committed vehicular assault and manslaughter, who's going bye-bye for a long time.
 
Second, the GOP has worked to a) reduce taxes b) create a friendlier environment for businesses c) created more jobs (which D'OhBama said were NEVER coming back) than any administration in the history of America d) rolled back stifling regulations that made it virtually impossible to get a freakin' ROAD built timely, let alone a factory e) got America out of the Paris Accords which would have levied punitive taxes on Americans while letting others in countries NOT America off scot-free f) improving the VA by allowing for the FIRING of incompetents and sadists and allowing more vets to go outside the "system" to use private docs when the wait times were unconscionable g) got America out of the Pacific Trade agreement which again punished Americans and gave countries like China, India, the Philippines, Vietnam and others a trade advantage h) got us out of the "great sucking sound" NAFTA agreement and replaced it with the USMCA, a MUCH better and more fair trade agreement i)  got NATO members to pay up instead of continuing their free ride on the backs of US taxpayers and j) brought NoKo to the negotiating table, and there've been no more rocket launches since the meeting.
 
I could go on, but your crapweasel statement about how "republicans have done nothing" stands overwhelmingly refuted and rejected with just the listed items.
 
Third, the Proud Boys are a DEFENSE group against the antifa nutbars, and have routinely sent these violent thugs reeling back with bruises, contusions, lumps and humiliation - when not knocked unconscious.  Antifa wanted no one to be able to defend themselves.  Not gonna happen.  The PB don't start the shit; they finish it.  All these Soros-funded groups like BAMN, ANtifa, BLM, all the "Open Society" front groups are going down, soon.  Wait and see.
 
Fourth, you missed the fact that the very WORD Nazi is a contraction from the German for National SOCIALIST German Worker's Party(i also have 2 citations from Hitler himself describing the nazis as socialists), and the Soviets were the United Soviet SOCIALIST Republics, not to mention the thrice-damned Red-freakin' Chinese.  An FYI: according to Marx/Engels, there has been NO true communist government on the planet; they were quite unclear about how to transition from Socialism to the fabled "worker's paradise."  Seen any "worker's paradises" lately? 
 
As to fascism, that is merely the union between gov't agencies and corporate entities united to tyrannize the population, but all the ists and isms out there have this in common: they elevate a fictional entity(the "State" or the "Party") to demigod status, and reduce all the people living under those forms of governance to a collective without any rights - only "privileges" doled out by the fictional entity; as soon as anyone becomes useless/"dangerous" to the State/Party, bad things happen to them...imprisonment, slave labor, torture, death - and now, selling of body parts!  Oh, and i just heard that the Chinese are now also selling clones. Yay!
 
Fifth, it's clear you have not been following the news about S. Africa.  i suggest you inform yourself with some websearches, if you haven't been paying attention to the now-routine slaughter of white farmers and the government making changes to the constitution to allow them to STEAL the assets of all the whites - to seize their land, equipment, tools, houses, barns, everything - no compensation.
 
Sixth, if your plan is to join with the globalists who want to topple America by bankrupting "the system" by increasing the numbers of those going on welfare, it is my sincere hope that you're monitored closely and serve time if you're caught cheating, not to mention being massively fined and barred from collecting any more "benefits."
 
Buh-bye, now.  Oh, and don't forget to thank me for my corrections to your corrections.
Jeff Michka Added Oct 23, 2018 - 4:26pm
Faced is real proud of his "corrections, but like most of what Faced writes, it's more lies and half truths.  For example Faced wants us to believe in the massacre of "good white farmers in South Africa, which is all lies.  There have been no "massacres" of white farmers in South Africa, let alone having those killings "routine."  The Ts have decided telling lies stokes up more hatred than telling truths, so now tell lies. They believe everything Orange bilge pumpings says, so you will believe their lies.  No, we won't forget a hearty f*** you for your lying corrections.   You really ought to try damning me to your sky guy again, Faced.  That was so thoughtful and loving in Geezus's eyes.  Hypocritical liar, Faced.

Come the 6th of November I honestly don't know what I'm going to do.
 
I detest everything that the Republicans stand for and I sure am not buying the Democratic Party's "Yeah we suck, but we suck just a tiny bit less than the Republicans" platform.  The problem is, in my state, they give you a choice of Democrat or Republican, based upon primary votes.  I voted Green Party in the primaries so not a damn one of my candidates are on the ballot.
 
I definitely will not vote for a Republican, but I'm dithering on whether it makes a bit of difference which party wins because they both suck to such a degree it is like deciding to have stomach cancer or colon cancer.

It is interesting.
 
I think the tax cuts and regulatory "right-sizing " has been prudent.
 
On the other hand, provoking a trade war with the PRC to get "concessions" from Canada and Mexico and the EU (that could have been had with less drama) was brain-damaged.  What better way to prove you are a declining power than to play chicken with someone with much better brakes?
 
Much of what has worked was that which Trump opposed and much of that which has caused the Stock market to slide of late are his pet policies.
 
I suspect we will see a change, but how much we will see remains to be determined.

FP:  Thank you for your reply.  Now allow me to correct you once again.  The Nazis in Virginia set out to murder, and they did.  Period.  End of story.  It's on tape.  It's not a "false flag".   The GOP did not help businesses or vets or America.  Obama signed the Choice Act which allows to go outside the VA if they're too backed up.  
 
NAFTA sucks, but we are still in it, we didn't "get out of it".  NATO members pay what they pay, Dump didn't get any of the other countries to pay more.  North Korea (hey, they have "republic" in their name, so they must be a republic, amiright?) has not stopped anything.  Nothing has been signed, like, at all.  
 
Proud Boys (lol, they call themselves boys) are Nazis- go look at what they stand for.  Nazi Germany KILLED the socialists, you goofball- it's the first group they went after.  The Nazis are FASCISTS- go look the term up.
 
No whities in South Africa are being killed, much less slaughtered.  And the government is taking some land back to balance the budget. That's what governments have to do sometimes.  Those white folks can just go somewhere else if they don't like it. 
 
Welfare fraud is lower than 1%.  That's incredible.  I plan to use as much as I can qualify for, because why not, it's free, and it helps me better myself and my family and my community.
 
Again, you are welcome for my education and corrections.

Unless and until the democrats wake up and rid themselves of socialists and those who refuse to condemn political violence, they're headed off the cliff and into the history books.  No one sane will vote them anywhere near the levers of power again.  While the Republicans are by no means perfect, their record under Trump has been quite impressive, with the exception of the wall funding, which is coming after the resounding defeat the democrats will soon experience. 
 
Do you think that when they lose, they'll FINALLY do some serious introspection and revision of their losing platform, or will they triple-down with the "resist" and "obstruct" nonsense, continuing their course of despising America and Americans in favor of illegal aliens?  If they keep on the latter path, their place as a footnote of history will be assured, no matter how much financing they get from China and allied globalist cretins.

i do have to amend one of my claims; the 600+ number in re: attacks by leftists on - basically, anyone NOT leftist - included instances of harassment as well as physical assaults - for example, the bike-lock attack on a Trump supporter by a professor at Berkley and the attempted murder of many republicans at softball practice in Virginia, iirc., but then there are the sticks, the bags/bottles of feces and urine, the firing of fireworks, the steel batons, the pepper spray/bear spray, ad nauseum.  Breitbart has been compiling a lovely little list, readily available with a websearch. 
 
i could supply it, but i'm no longer motivated.  i've found that figuratively shoving noses in the truth doesn't really convince anyone.  Only experience will do that, and one doesn't get experience any other way than by making mistakes, for most people.  "Experience is the school of mankind, but fools will learn at no other."
 
From what vids i've seen, the Proud Boys fight back, usually only with fists - as in democrat-run cities, the police usually disarm THEM, but leave antifa alone - and armed.  The PB's are not Nazis.  They're defenders of people who want to peaceably assemble and pray.
 
I know that antifa routinely calls ANYONE and EVERYONE who opposes them "Nazis," and "fascists," but they're employing the exact same tactics as Mussolini's black shirts(fascists) and Hitler's brownshirts(socialists), so THEY're the fascists and nazis, not those they attack.  These antifa morons are just repeating history, and don't even know it.  Ignorance of history will rebound on them very soon...oh, and especially, once the Soros funding is terminated.
 
Americans are Constitutionally guaranteed the right to PEACEABLY assemble; violent mobs are not included.  The latter are criminals, and eventually, will be rounded up, prosecuted, fined, and imprisoned.

The Nazis, based on US politics, were left-wing.  However, all German politics and economics post-Bismarck seem left wing because Bismarck embraced a broader role for the government in the economy than the US generally has.
 
The Nazis did not hold some positions traditionally popular with the Right in German politics in the 1930s, for example, wanting to bring back the monarchy. 
 
It is difficult to put the politics of a foreign country of 80 to 100 years ago in contemporary US political terms without it becoming next to meaningless.

No, it is because you simply fail to understand that fascism is a left wing ideology.  You insist it is right wing, but it is far right wing as a socialist policy, it is far from being a right wing policy.  You fail to grasp that fact even though it has been stated and linked from many sources.  From a European perspective, fascism is right wing because everything comes out of socialism.  individual liberty is unique to america, and that is the right wing here, which makes fascism far to the left of that.  Government control even totalitarian government control is far to the left of individual liberty.  You simply refuse to acknowledge that you are incorrect.

Regarding fascism, see what this professor has to say about it and ask yourself if it sounds like a leftwing or a rightwing thing (not speaking to Kenny who is throughly brainwashed beyond the ability to think).
In an earlier article ‘Fascism Anyone?’, published in the Spring 2003 issue of Free Inquiry Magazine, Professor Laurence W. Britt identified fourteen shared threads that link fascists. These include powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism, disdain for the importance of human rights, identification of enemies/scapegoats (such as communists, socialists, liberals, ethnic and racial minorities, traditional national enemies, members of other religions, secularists, homosexuals and ‘terrorists’) as a unifying cause, obsession with national security and avid identification with the military, sexism, a controlled/compliant mass media that promotes the elite agenda, a manufactured perception that opposing the power elite is tantamount to an attack on religion, corporate power protected by the political elite while the power of labor is suppressed or eliminated, disdain for intellectuals and the arts, expanded police power and prison populations in response to an obsession with the crime and punishment of ordinary citizens (while elite crimes are protected by a compliant judiciary), rampant cronyism and corruption, and fraudulent elections defended by a judiciary beholden to the power elite.

I had missed this discussion before; now I find it quite interesting.   First, I'd like to observe that Ken views "left" as being centralized power and "right" as greater individual liberty.    That's OK, but I would just say that the Nazis were not in the business of redistributing wealth or providing a safety net for the less privileged, the main true dividing points between our modern-day left and right ideologies.  He is right that fascism is the alliance between corporate power and governmental power for nationalistic goals. 
To Liberal1, who decries the absence of a meaningful third party, I would say:  Look to the words of Donald Trump, when the recent bomb story broke.  He asked for "unity".  I agree with him:  all well-meaning Americans must unite electorally to crush the current regime and its authoritarian tendencies (I didn't say "fascist"--not yet, anyway).  Once we have done that, and removed the power of the Trump faction from our political life, the Republican party will either shrivel to a minor party or re-form itself into something completely different.  I worry little that the Democratic party could become a single-party in that case:  it wouldn't take long after that for it to form a schism between the moderates and the radicals.  But first things first:  we have to defeat Trump utterly in 2020, and we need to begin that in 2018.   
FacePalm Added Oct 27, 2018 - 9:42am

Your hopes and dreams for destroying Trump are in vain.
He'll be re-elected in 2020, no matter WHO runs against him, for no one in ANY party(there are several more than just democrats, btw) has come up with any better plans than his, which are daily showing their wisdom and beneficial results - which pisses democrats off no end, it seems.
 
And your claims that Trump is an "authoritarian" are ludicrous on their face.  If he and his team were as authoritarian as you pretend, most of MSM would be in prison or dead by now...like in REAL authoritarian countries, e.g. Venezuela, Guatemala, S. Africa, NoKo, the Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, or China.
 
Or maybe you don't understand the intended purpose of the Executive Branch, which is to faithfully enforce the laws of the United States, and to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic...unlike, say, the Shrub, who railed against "that damned piece of paper," or D'OhBama, who simply ignored it and dared anyone to do anything about it.

Face Palm:  I like your last point--it definitely applies to our accidental President.  That grotesque mistake will not be repeated in 2020--whoever the Democrats come up with as the nominee.  You can bet on it.   You say no one has a better plan than he--I have a better plan:  stop sucking up to our enemies, and start treating our friends as friends.  Stop pretending that we are not damaging our environment.  Stop stirring up hatred and encouraging bigots.  Stop pretending that we are not a nation of immigrants and refugees, and their descendants.  (And no, I am not one of the many considering a run for President against him--I am too smart for that deathmarch/drudgery).
 
I said he has authoritarian tendencies and I totally stand by that.  Look at whom he praises and defends:  Duterte, Putin, Xi, MBS, Erdogan.  Look at whom he attacks:  NATO, Merkel, Macron, Trudeau.  He attacks the press as "enemies of the state" if they criticize him.  He advocates violence against those who dare heckle him at his proto-Fascist rallies. He has repeatedly expressed a desire to become President for life, or some such nonsense. He is a dangerous egomaniac and must be defeated.  At least we do have the Constitution which somewhat restrains people like him--with regard to that basis of our republic, I totally agree with you. 
 
You dare to bring up and criticize Abraham Lincoln in this regard.  Yes, he was dealing with armed rebellion (the "War for States' Rights"--LOL), and he had to push his legal authority to the limit (maybe even beyond) temporarily.   The evidence shows how conflicted he was by that necessity.  We do not have that situation, except as regards domestic terrorists (somehow all of them these days are white supremacists--coincidence I guess /s).

Abraham Lincoln  tore up the 'rights' of millions of Americans and started a scorched earth policy against rural Southerners who were farmers not on the battle field. 
This is close to genocide.

Sorry, I do not accept some right of secession or to make war against the US of A.  Many rural Southerners who did not own slaves were victims of being duped by elitist, empowered racist Confederates who led them to disaster.   Some still labor under the delusion that this war to defend slavery was righteous.  I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and I know of what I write.  Dustbin of history; no need to stir it up.

The Civil War was about a lot more than slavery. It was about political power that  the North would lose in the state count. Revisit the Missouri Compromise.

I am very well aware of all that; I have extensively studied modern history, and in particular US history.  There were lots of issues which led to the series of Southern states voting for secession.  At the bottom, though, was a struggle for power between the slaveowning aristocracy and those who would limit the extent of slavery.  Once the Civil War broke out, though, the Union (the states that did not secede) determined that this issue should be settled once and for all, and in the name of justice, it was done.

Than it is very likely that you have read the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers where it clearly stated that if States did not like the way their Contract with the Nationalist (for it was indeed created as a Nationalist, not a Federalist System) that they had every inherent right to withdraw from that contract? That is at least, until it became a Federal System after the War Between The States.
