Could they honestly be waking up?

July 1, 2018

I want you to watch this video and then come back.

Could it be happening? I am not talking about the sheep, the Jim Acosta’s, Lena Dunham, Rosie O’Donnell, but the mainstream every day ‘common man’? Are we seeing the beginnings of a true awakening? Are they finally turning their eyes away from the shiny objects CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and the rest of them are distracting them with?

Let me add this to the video above.

I took this from a young man’s twitter feed, here are the tweets condensed into one piece. You can follow him at @bryandeanwright

Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat. We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis. Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all. Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11)

Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure. Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters. Blame the #ElectoralCollege. Blame Comey. Blame the Russians. No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.

About those #Russians. We have assured ourselves that Trump is a Russian traitor. We’ve held up the #SteeleDossier as proof. Nevermind that CIA Director Brennan gave it “no particular credence.” Rather than let Mueller find the facts, we’ve already executed POTUS for treason.

Meanwhile, we’ve defended the #FBI, calling them unquestionable defenders of freedom. Nevermind that Hellen Keller could see that the senior ranks — Comey, Strzok, etc — deserved scrutiny & punishment. Indeed, the #IGReport laid out a damning case in painful detail. Oops.

Socially, we’ve also fanned the flames of discord. After #Charlottesville, we were more concerned about tearing down Confederate statues than holding #Antifa’s feet to the fire. And those statues? America wanted new ones next to the old. Add to history, not destroy it. But no.

And then there was #BLM. Less than 1,000 people die annually at the hands of a cop. Out of 325 million people. And most of the dead are white. Studies do show people of color suffer harassment by cops at higher levels than whites. But not deaths. Where was that nuance?

Now let’s talk #Islam. Democrats scream that “We’re All Muslim” while wearing scarfs that actual Muslim women dream of taking off w/o being jailed. And what about Salafi Muslims who hate gays, science, & democracy? Are Democrats those Muslims too? Zero reasons in this debate.

Which leads to #immigration. We’re embracing #AbolishICE knowing full well the history of the Abolish movement is to create #OpenBorders. Nevermind that polls overwhelmingly show Americans want illegals deported, humanely, and our border strengthened. But Dem elites don’t care

Now we’re embracing #Socialism w/ no concern for its dark history or how we’d pay for all of those “free” programs. Normally the media would hold these folks accountable. But no. They’re too busy calling Socialists “badass” and “super impressive.” How objective.

None of this means Trump or Republicans are the answer. Some of the garbage that’s coming out of their mouths is equally wrong. But unless Democrats present a credible alternative, our arguments won’t matter. Rightfully so. We will have whined & cried wolf one too many times.

I’m done w/ #Progressives. I’m done w/ the #RESISTANCE. I’m done with the Nazi talk, the bashing of Trump voters. I’m done with the refusal to own our mistakes. And yes, I’m done with folks like @michaelianblack, who sit in mansions & complain of fatigue. They can pound sand.

Red Hen proves there is no more middle ground

June 23, 2018

At least they are consistent in their two-faced day after day hypocrisy.

A bakery refuses to bake a “HYPOTHETICAL” wedding cake for a gay couple and liberals want both the Government and the Supreme Court to step in. (Which the USSC did step in, ruling in favor of the business for those denying truth and reality)

Conservatives everywhere, including me, remark that whether you agree or not with the bakery owners stance, choosing who they do and do not do business with is their right. Capitalism and free markets will cull the weak and fix the stupid.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a true woman if there ever was one, is denied service in a restaurant that apparently looks at itself as ‘tolerant, loving and inclusive’.

She’s publicly embarrassed but instead of creating a scene, protesting, asking for pickets and rioting, she leaves.

Conservatives everywhere are outraged. Myself included. But you don’t see the difference? It’s blatant, it’s obvious and it IS consistent.

I am outraged at a company acting one way and saying something else. I hate liars, phonies, and cowards.

Democrats in the south used to refuse service to ‘undesirables’, we called that racism.

See the difference is at the core of what a liberal is and what a conservative is.

As a conservative, I don’t care what business you run or how you do it. I have the right in a free market economy to pick and choose who gets my disposable income. I want the people to speak in opposition to oppression, racism and the rest, the laws are already in place, I don’t need my government once again overstepping its boundaries and imposing their perverted sense of morals and lack of ethics and integrity on my country any more than they already have.

Liberals want laws for anything and everything that offends them (which at one point or another is everything). Liberals want laws to save them, protect them and not offend them. They fail to recognize all those laws exist, but there will always be people who don’t abide by them.

Then they take it a step further, they want those laws to apply just ‘some of the time’ and to be ‘malleable’ when they are enforced. In other words let us tell you who to prosecute (Dinesh D’Souza) and who to look the other way on (Hillary Clinton) because we’re smarter, richer and better than you.

They want the most corrupt body of humans in this country, Dems and swamp-dwelling republicans, to make our laws.

Haven’t we just learned that our gov’t, from the FBI on down, doesn’t give two shits about the ‘common man’. You know, the common man living in those flyover states Hollywood and liberal elites look down their noses at.

Let private business do what it wants, let the people fix the problem. This garbage can of a restaurant will live or die on this action they chose to take. If there’s justice then they’ll go belly up for practicing the very intolerance they claim to be fighting. Pretty much exactly like Antifa. They are the exact thing they profess to hate.

Do they really understand what a Nazi is?

June 17, 2018
noun, plural Na·zis.
  1. a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, which controlled Germany from 1933 to 1945 under Adolf Hitler and advocated totalitarian government, territorial expansion, anti-Semitism, and Aryan supremacy, all these leading directly to World War II and the Holocaust.

 

The term “Nazi’ has been used for over 80 years. In the past 2, it has been overused to the point of watering down the true evil the word really defines.

I had an epiphany today. The left somehow has been led to believe Nazi, and Fascist is a ‘right wing’ ideology. I don’t know how, my guess is the liberal education system has been allowed to teach that lie and the ignorance surrounding it, unchecked for too long.

But today I realized that it can and does apply in a very simple and direct way, to both parties.

See as conservatives we understand “Nazi’, true scum of the earth anti-semitic trash will exist in this country. You cannot now nor will you ever be able to legislate a person’s morals, no matter how despicable they are.

To enjoy freedoms like no other country or people on the planet you will always have to put up with that ‘element’. That’s not to brag or pontificate but that’s just fact. Evil and disgusting people are legally allowed to live and speak here.

One of the reasons is pretty simple. If you were to try and make that ‘evil’ person a criminal, who would define ‘evil’? You? Me? A body of government?

That last one, that is exactly where the road splits between left and right.

See we as conservatives, true Republicans, we recognize no matter how repulsive they are, no matter how hateful their speech, our Constitution affords them that right.

As conservatives, we understand a “Nazi” can live in this country legally, as long as they abide by our laws and don’t harm others. We don’t have to like them, in fact, we despise them, but our being offended isn’t legal grounds to do anything nor should it ever be.

Liberals? Liberals want our GOVERNMENT to act as their Nazi’s. They want a government that can ban ‘hate speech’ (with no answer as to who or what it is, it is just speech that ‘offends’ them).

These people define socialism and fascism.

Definition of fascism

often capitalized a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

Hell, they created a group called “Antifa”, which is supposed to be short for “Anti-Fascist” and the ENTIRE GROUP IS MADE UP OF FASCIST!

The left is trying to scramble up our “Nationalism” which is a love of our country, and ALL who legally live here regardless of race, sex, religion, sexual orientation or any other human trait with Aryan Nation nationalism. That was a belief that White Germans, pure Aryan, born and bred, and ONLY they, were superior to all other races. That Jews, Gypsies, and others were sub-human.

See the difference? It’s extreme but they’ve somehow managed to confuse people.

The left want’s our elected officials to be able to act like Nazi’s.

They want to be able to tell you not only how much money you can make, but how much you can keep. The more successful you are the more you owe them.

They want you to trust them to redistribute YOUR wealth.

They want to be able to define ‘hate speech’ and make it illegal.

Hell, they wanted to make denying the worlds greatest scam, climate change, acid rain, global warming and coming ice age (whichever it is this month) a criminal offense.

Let’s be very clear, they want to abolish the 2nd Amendment. They’ll scream to the heavens as they always have “no one wants to take your guns’, while they take your guns. Just ask law-abiding citizens of Deerfield, IL or veterans in California who had their legally owned firearms confiscated with no due process, for checking the wrong box on a government form.

If legislation was on the table tomorrow, that completely eliminated your 2A rights, 99% of, if not 100%, Democrats would sign it without a second thought.

See that’s what Nazi’s, Socialist, Fascist, that’s what they are. A group of people who believe they are so much smarter than you that you can’t make up your mind on your own. They need to intervene in your life to tell you what is and is not good for you, and/or right for you.

They want to tell you what you can say, they want to tell you what you can earn, they want capitalism to go away. The thing that drove this country to the greatness it is now just beginning to recover.

I’ve said for years the left is the very thing they are currently screaming about.

They have screamed collusion for 2 years only to have it revealed it was the DNC, Clinton, Obama, Holder, Rice, Lynch, Comey, McCabe, Strzock, Page, Fusion GPS and Russian actors who colluded to make sure Donald Trump did not win the 2016 election.

They go to free speech rallies and physically assault American citizens marching for free speech. That is EXACTLY WHAT THE NAZI’S DID IN THE 1930’S.

fascists

This is no mistake. This is no coincidence. Once again they are exactly that which they profess to hate. You folks did know the “green movement’ of wind/solar started with Nazi, Germany in the early 1930’s right? That’s not a big issue as far as this conversation is concerned but if you want to discover why it is and how it came to be, read about the origin and history of the movement and how, why it came to be.

So anyway that’s the “epiphany”.

Conservatives accept that laws won’t make morals change, or attitudes. That laws are there to protect. We understand that shitty, evil people are legally allowed to live here because we don’t want corrupt, perverted, amoral, immoral politicians deciding for us just what is and is not acceptable for a society with laws.

Liberals want our Government to provide everything for them. Moral and ethical guidelines around what you can say, wear, sing, etc.

They want our government to provide them with life’s necessities and they want our government to take from the wealthiest and most successful, you know the folks that actually create all of our jobs, and give to those less fortunate AND those that choose not to earn their own way but also want no business in differentiating those two.

They want our government to control any and all firearms in this country and if not place as many laws as possible between a law-abiding citizen and the acquisition of a firearm our Constitution specifically spelled out as a right for our self-defense and defense against a tyrannical government. They gave that right because they were victims of that same tyrannical government. .

That’s what Hitler and the Nazi party did in their rise to power. They took complete control of the population from cradle to the grave. A disarmed and starving nation took to them like heroes because they put them all to work during a nationwide depression.

Nazi’s seem to have complete control over everything. Nazi’s want laws to prevent anyone from doing anything they find offensive. They also want to be able to tell you what is and is not offensive. You don’t get to agree/disagree on that one either.

So, in the end, the left want’s to act like Nazi’s, no matter how much they yell that everyone in the world but them is Nazi-like.

They think you are so stupid that you can’t run your own lives and you need and want them to do it for you.

Oh and did I mention they want all that and they want our borders to be completely open. As Hillary said “Hemispherical Borders” is their aim.

You cannot be a sovereign nation without borders.

Lastly? You want to see what they left is after? Look at Germany, France, the UK and now some of the Nordic territories. Oh and Venezuela and Cuba too.

That is what socialism and socialized medicine looks like. It always had and always will. Capitalism is the sworn enemy of socialism.

In other words, earning your own way is frowned upon if you earn your way far enough to be considered ‘successful’. They want the government to tell you how successful you can be…….

Is that what we want?

Put me in the “no” box on that one.

 

GOD BLESS THE USA

(And the left will tell you the above saying is ‘dog whispering for white privilege’)

 

Need some folks ‘smart at math’

May 13, 2018

I’ve been nosing around twitter analytics for awhile as I watch the left and the silicon valley social media giants admit to being hardcore liberals bent on silencing conservative voices.

I’m very curious to hear from anyone versed in mathematics who understands probability and averages as to their thoughts on these numbers.
On October of 2016, I had 223K followers.
Now, month by month, and I am sure anyone versed in math and probability as well as the law of averages can see something here…
These are the monthly totals of followers +/-
10/16 223,000 Followers
11/16 +4003
12/16 +2564
1/17  +15.2K
2/17 +11.3K
3/17 -126
4/17 +2119
5/17 +206K ????
6/17 +2076
7/17 +3527
8/17 +1390
9/17 +6085
10/17 +1694
11/17 +1764
12/17 +1808
1/18 -386
2/18 -657
3/18 -279
4/18 +584
5/18 -23
5/18 225,000 followers
In addition to these numbers, I am now hearing from many followers who have been asking me about my lack of tweets. They are not receiving Periscope notifications anymore or seeing my twitter activity.
My guess is that in/on/around 5/17 someone on ‘the other side’ was in my account and doing some manipulation of some sort. Why? For what?
Also, I spent my life in data and numbers. I understand ebb and flow and averages and how much of this works. But this dataset has issues and speaks to something/someone behind the keyboard playing around and/or manipulating my account.
Honest to God I say this not to whine or complain. I say this to back up and verify much of what we know about how social media is aggressively trending to silence conservative opinions on any/all social media platforms while under the protection of Gov’t laws and friendly tax codes meant to ignore a clear monopoly on social media.
All that to say this. I totally get it, it is who and what they are. I just wish someone, anyone, on that side had the balls/guts to just openly admit that the cowards are doing exactly what we all know they are doing.

My 2018 HOF ballot

January 28, 2018

Ya, I don’t get one but so what. Unlike the voters, I also get to share some personal memories of these guys.

My 2018 Hall of Fame Ballot

No limit to votes and I am not included

  1. Chipper Jones – No brainer. When you think about the greatest switch hitters of all time, Mantle, Murray, Chipper is absolutely in the conversation. Enjoyed the hell out of competing against him. He was so good he made the game plan easy. No repeat pitch, no repeat location, ever. The only issue was that meant you needed to have 3 workable pitches every AB.
  2. Vladimir Guerrero- Yes. I think he snuck up on me as I wasn’t thinking he was a lock for some reason. Then seeing his numbers and understanding his toolset it really does get easy. The approach was simple, yet complex. You threw every pitch knowing he was swinging and did everything in your power to make sure his contact was away from the barrel. Insane plate coverage. I idolized Clemente growing up and Vlad was the closest thing I’ve ever seen to Roberto in RF.
  3. Jim Thome – Might sound dumb but the guy should have gotten in on character alone. An amazing man who I wish I’d been able to play with. Didn’t face him too much but he left me a parting gift. Drilling me on the elbow in the final game before the all-star break in a game that ended up going 18 innings. I faced one more hitter and was done literally and figuratively. The amazing stat for me? 612 Home Runs AND a .402 OBP.
  4. Trevor Hoffman – For all the talk of Mo’s cutter, I thought Trevor’s changeup was every bit as lethal. In addition to being an awesome guy, he had the uncanny ability to forget last night. I think people who’ve never played the game fail to understand just how hard AND how different those last 3 outs are. When he had command and his changeup it was like watching someone play Nintendo baseball.
  5. Edgar Martinez – Yes. I think it’s insane he’s not in yet. In addition to one of the most gorgeous RH swings of all time, this guy just hits, and hits and hits. I don’t understand how you penalize a guy for playing the position he’s given.FWIW in 2055 games, his OPS was higher than Chipper AND Vlads. He was one of those insane combos of power and contact.
  6. Mike Mussina – Yes. I think, no, I know folks just don’t understand this fact. He won 270 games with a 3.68 ERA ALL while pitching his entire career in the most offensive division in the game, the AL East. Add to the fact he pitched in Camden Yards, and Yankee Stadium and again I think this election should have already happened.
  7. Clemens – While he was a HOF before he cheated, clearly IMO, I would not ever vote for someone that cheated. I hate that in this case because Roger was an ENORMOUS part of my career and every interaction of our lives was a good one. I wasn’t pissed nearly as much as I was disappointed when it all came out. FWIW matching up in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series was one of the most ironic and awesome experiences of my career. Not to mention when he threw me a 92mph split I laughed, out loud…..
  8. Bonds – Same thing. This guy was on the way to being the greatest to ever play before he cheated. I just don’t think I would or could vote to reward someone who willingly and knowingly cheated. Having said that this was the ultimate combo of power and speed. Hit more HR off me than any other player. In the years he was huge, and hitting everything I am not exaggerating when I say you either threw the ball 95+ inside or off the inside corner or you just put him on. He NEVER chased. Told me early in my career he could see my split which is why he never swung at it, so I never used it again…
  9. Omar Vizquel – The HOF is the ONLY place I feel defense has little to no value. If Omar hit .200 for his career he should still have a plaque. Alex Gonzalez had the best single season I’ve ever seen at SS in 2006 but Omar was the best defensive shortstop of my era, hands down. I remember getting out early for BP just to watch him take ground balls.
  10. Larry Walker – Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.Like punishing a DH I don’t understand punishing someone for being extraordinary even if you think it was the Coors effect. This guy was a 5 tool player in Montreal. Had a career .313 average over 17 YEARS! FWIW his WAR is higher than Vlads and .3 behind Thome. He had every bit the arm Vlad did and he brought speed as well stealing 230 bases. If he’d stay healthy I expected him to be a legit 40/40 guy. Fun to face too, we always seemed to be guessing each other every AB.
  11. Fred McGriff – Yes. In addition to being what seemed like a great guy and teammate, the guy hit 493 home runs and he did it clean, absolutely clean and I have zero doubts about that. My most vivid memory was his trade to Atlanta when he seemed to homer every day and help them into the postseason. Had a gorgeous swing too. .377 OBP and .886 OPS over 19 years is insane. Stacks up to and surpasses folks already enshrined.
  12. Manny Ramirez – See Bonds and Clemens. The worst part of this is he was without a doubt one of the two smartest offensive players I ever played with. The only guy I ever saw spend almost as much time in the video room as I did. The word majestic comes to mind when I think about his swing, it was perfection. Combined with a very intelligent approach he was the ultimate combination of power and average. A CAREER .996 OPS…… That’s just stupid. He once told me he was going into a game and was not going to swing until the starter threw him a curve ball, he knew it was coming and when it did he was going to crush it. 3rd AB of the game, no swings as of yet, 1 walk 1 K, 1st pitch curveball and he hit it to Landsdowne Street. I always laughed when he talked to young players and they asked him for advice. “Get a good pitch and swing” was his offering. He was so good, like many, that hitting really did boil down to that.
  13. Jeff Kent – Am I mistaken or didn’t this guy end up as one of the top offensive 2B of all time? I don’t know if he’s in or not but I do know he’s far more than a 14% vote guy…
  14. Gary Sheffield – See Bonds, Clemens, Manny. I remember very vividly the day I heard him say he intentionally made errors to lose games. That sucked beyond all reason as this guy was absolutely a hitter to be feared. His insane pre-swing movements belied a swing that was picture perfect. Yes, he seemed out of control but damn if every still shot of contact didn’t show him in the perfect hitting position. That bat waggle came before a swing that was at the top of the charts from a bat speed perspective. I compare him to Paul Molitor in this sense, there was never a pitch he couldn’t barrel. As we would say ‘the guy could pull a bullet foul’.
  15. Billy Wagner – Made hitters swing and miss like few others, ever. I don’t know the criteria for relievers but this guy was one of the 3-4 best closers of my era hands down.
  16. Scott Rolen – 10.2% for the best defensive 3B of all time?I had the honor of watching him from day 1 through his first couple of years and I agree with Mike Schmidt, Scott was the best defensive 3B to ever play the game. The game’s over a century old when you’re the best ever at something that means you’re a hall of Famer. He could have been a marginal offensive player (which he was not, he could hit) and he still should be in. He was Omar Vizquel at 3B. I always said this about Scott, he had range at a position no one else did. 3B is for most a position of reaction. Few guys, Arrenado, Caminiti, and a few others actually had range left and right. I remember opening day 1997. One run lead, bottom of 9, Brett Butler slaps a ball down the 3B line and Scott catches it on the bag running into foul territory, spins and throws a BB to Rico Brogna at 1B beating Butler by like 3 steps. I remember thinking “Wow, that sucks. You just made the best defensive player in history in your 1st season. Nowhere to go but down from here.
  17. Sammy Sosa – See Bonds, Clemens, Manny…
  18. Andruw Jones – I would say this. I would vote for him because I think he was the best CF of my generation and I can’t imagine he wasn’t in the top 3-4 all time. I never saw anyone (except Devon White) who seemed to glide when they ran. Never ever looked like there was any effort. I honestly think many times folks got on him for ‘not hustling’ it was because he was so effortless. He was quite honestly “pretty’ to watch. Another example of defense being worth too little to HOF voters IMO. As an aside, I got to sit next to Andruw on our flight to Japan in 1998. A more well mannered and well-spoken young man I have not met. Speaks multiple languages. Also? This was the year Bobby had pulled him off the field mid-game. He talked about it and how he regretted it. I wished he’d stayed healthy and that good, he could have been the best CF to ever play the game.

 

  • Guys that dropped off the ballot.
  • Johan Santana – The 2nd guy to destroy the 2nd half of a season and beat me in Cy Young voting. Won unanimous and deserved it. Honestly, when he got going early on he was a lock hall of famer. I don’t remember a lefty with that much ‘stuff’. His changeup was a game changer. I knew facing him that the winning run was up the minute the game started. I don’t think he played long enough. But I do know he sure as hell deserved more of a look than 2.4%
  • Johnny Damon – I don’t think he got the overall numbers you’d need but I can tell you this. At 7:05 every night I loved the fact he was my CF. After Steve Finley, I think Johnny was as good a CF as I ever had the honor of pitching in front of. His game 7 in the 2004 ALCS was one for the ages.
  • Hideki Matsui – Clearly nowhere near the duration needed but I can tell you this. Of the guys on that team in his days in NY he was the hitter I most hated facing. I never ever got a feel for his approach and he was a very smart hitter. In 2004, game 6 of the ALCS he was the one hitter I was most concerned with that night as I knew I didn’t have anything sharp breaking to get swings and misses from him. Thankfully he didn’t square up the mistakes I made to him that night!
  • Kerry Wood – Injuries kept him from being the HOF he would have been. I will say that I played with RJ, watched him punch out 20, saw Clemens do it, saw Pedro k 17 Yankees and all that. Saw many awesome games. But I still to this day believe his 20 K game vs the Astros was the most dominating game of my lifetime. FWIW a fantastic guy too.
  • Orlando Hudson – I loved this guy. Hated his guts before I met him. Legit game changer on defense and a decent bat.

 

 

Quick and easy electoral college lesson

August 25, 2017

If I have to hear one more uneducated, or overeducated liberal whine about the Electoral College as unfair and/or outdated I’m likely to roll my eyes out the back of my head. So in an effort to help spread education and awareness let me try to make this far simpler to understand. In all honesty, I think you all understand it, you just refuse to acknowledge its legitimacy when you lose.

 

Let’s take our electoral college for this example across the ‘pond’ to Europe. Our Europe is made up of 50 countries and ruled by a governing body of people we’ll never know and who are corrupt as all hell.

But something wild happens, like Soros, is removed from power, and the EU decides to create a constitution and democratically elect a President as well as a governing body.

Let’s also assume this population spread.

ecollageFor our example let’s take both approaches.

In our first example, we’ll go with 1 person 1 vote ALL votes count equally. Under that system using this data as the populations, who do you think picks the person to run Europe every single time?

So the 209+ million living in the “states’ of the former Soviet Union, where communism flourishes, their values, and their morals, their ethics, are now the foundation of the Constitution of the “new” EU.

Does the absurdity of that not become quickly apparent?

Under an electoral system, the countries up top would, like NY and California, have far more impact than most in the electoral college but their citizens alone would not and should never be the single deciding factor in every election. Why? Because they in no way represent anything beyond Russian interests. In the exact same manner, California has almost always been its own country with its own laws infringing on our constitutional rights. Always putting legal and illegal citizens, well ahead of the country’s well being. Take a peek at their voting history. The Russia/Eastern Europe California/New York comparison is actually far closer to reality than I think most would believe at first glance.

Do you want California and/or New York to pick our President every time? Me neither. The case could comfortably be made that the liberal voters in those two states represent pretty much the exact opposite of what the rest of the nation, common working men, and women, desire. If you don’t believe me look at this county by county map of the 2016 election:

election-2016-county-map

The ‘right’ has always been about these:

  1. Defense of the country and constitution
  2. Less Gov’t intrusion
  3. Right to life
  4. More rights to each state
  5. Less ‘control’ for Gov’t
  6. Less power for Gov’t.

Think about this. Every single decision the left makes is based on one or more of the following factors:

Race, Sex, Sexual preference, religious preference, color and more.

Don’t believe me?

Check this out

clinton racism

Here’s a link to the email

Is this not racism in it’s simplest purest form? Is this also not a perfect method to build something guaranteed to fail? Nope, we don’t need to best and brightest, we need a Muslim, Hispanic, Asian, black and female.

Is this not the height of repulsiveness? Every one of these hires was built on anything but qualifications. Why wouldn’t the 12 positions be filled by the most qualified?

So basically if you read this the way it’s intended, no, your college degree didn’t get you this job, your skin color did. Your religious preference did, your God given sex did. No room on any of these teams for an insanely talented lesbian if you already have the 4 women (assuming COO is a white woman)? How about you being the most qualified person for “women” slots but you are transitioning to a male?

Does the putrid smell of elitism not emanate from every corner of this ideology?

The right? Every single decision true conservatives make is in the desperate attempt to CONSERVE American values. American values have absolutely nothing to do with your race, sex, sexual preference, religious preference, color and more.

They have everything to do with your desire to abide by the Constitution and the laws of the land and when it comes to jobs your ability, intelligence, and desire to be good.

We fought a civil war to make sure our constitution became fully color blind. We beat Democrats in that war, soundly. We passed 3 Amendments to give blacks the same rights as everyone else within the decade of that war ending.

If you are a young black man, or black women PLEASE read these three

Look at the dates they were passed. Then? Look at the dates of MLK and the march on Selma, Alabama. Why on earth would Mr. King OR Selma be necessary? You were given the same freedoms as I was almost 100 years earlier? There’s no logic there.

Here’s why it was a hundred years in the making.

Democrats introduced Jim Crowe, Segregation, lynching and the KKK. Terror and oppression that would last the next century and keep blacks from being able to prosper and fight for or earn their own place in society. Effort and desire remained irrelevant, for the next century it remained all about the color of your skin. Made even more repugnant by the fact blacks were allowed to fight in wars to defend the nation, defend the world and afterwards, Truman and Dems desperately tried to keep you from the GI Bill and other gov’t entitlements afforded every soldier who was not black.

We then fought another ‘civil war’ to end segregation. (Oh, by the way, Republicans tried TWICE to introduce anti-lynching amendments and BOTH times Democrats defeated them. You do know the 2nd time it was FDR leading the charge to keep your hands off the lynching laws?)

The switch? You were lied to, you were taught a complete and total lie. Don’t believe me? Work your ass off and look it up, using MANY actual sources and docs, and as it dawns on you that it was and always will be one of the largest hoaxes ever, get pissed.

Please take a look at this and there are MANY MANY more out there. Facts, not opinion, FACTS. 

When the black vote switched in the 1930s it did so behind a series of entitlement programs (many of which Democrats wished to exclude blacks from) bent on moving from the plantations of slavery to a new ‘plantation’ that would bypass ‘slavery’ and enter a new reality. The reality of ‘enslavement’. Before blacks were owned and forced to work for no pay. Now? Blacks were being given the chance to get paid for no work. Who wouldn’t change their vote?

I’m not going to go in depth about Margaret Sanger. If you want to know what Democrats through the modern ones of today have always thought read up on her and pay attention to her “Eugenics” plan and how people qualified to make her list of “Undesirables”. Hint: Being black qualified you for that list.

One more story. In the year XXXX at a college in this country a group of students have committed to protesting the speech of a conservative politician.

Their plan was to make the venue so loud through yelling it would drown out the speaker’s message and render the speech useless.

They were doing this in protest of War.

Not long before this event, a man approached these college students with a suggestion.

“Don’t go there and scream. Instead, dress up as KKK Members, full regalia, every single time the speaker says something you disagree with and want to yell and boo? You cheer.”

Students were like “what the hell?”

The man says “Ya, cheer him on. Because when that begins to happen you will garner 101% of the media attention. Not only that but the speaker, who is now supported by the Klan, is a white supremacist, even though everyone knew he was not.

Year = 1972

School = Tulane

Speaker = George H W Bush

Man =  Saul Alinsky

(Thanks, Dinesh!)

That sound anything like recent events?

 

Finally:

Go back and look at pictures of the inner cities of Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore and most other democratically led inner cities. First, check them out right around 1960 or so prior to MLK’s rise and victory in a Civil Rights movement (which without enthusiastic R support Dems would have never passed.) Now? Check out those same cities today.

Then ask yourself this very important, actually the most important question. What have almost 60 years of voting Democrat gotten you? How has it helped you rise up to be self-sufficient? Are you better or worse off 60 years after you went all in for Democrats? What did elite white Dems do that got you so hot to make sure the Maxine Waters of the world, Kwame Browns, Al Sharptons, Marion Berry’s, blacks who have risen to positions of power on the backs of corruption in YOUR states and in YOUR communities.

This is the greatest country in the world. Problem is the only thing that can bring us down is a division of our legal citizens to the point of anarchy and that’s happening before our very eyes.

If you do not educate yourself as to HOW we got here and how this will manifest itself then you are going to sit idly by and watch self-destruction being funded by globalist men of immense wealth and power who have one single goal: Control.

The same criminals who were apoplectic after Brexit are the same one’s bat shit crazy after last November.

Not a single ounce of concern about the future of this nation.

Why the hell do you think both Democrats AND Republicans are fighting this President? Their corrupt, felonious, scamming scummy evil system is being exposed and most all of them are in on it.

If WE THE PEOPLE do nothing we will end up getting exactly what we deserve.

 

P.S. Also know, unlike you’ve been taught in our liberal education system, there are NOT always two sides to every story and not every debate has a ‘middle ground’. Some things are just bad, good, terrible or amazing. When those ‘things’ are the opposite of what you have been ‘taught’ it can be very hard to break free of the BS.

You cannot “agree to disagree” on facts. Opinions fine, but not facts. That’s not how it works. Facts are provable. Opinions are malleable. If you care enough you can find out the facts about anything you doubt, anything you question. But if you go looking be very prepared to find things you will not want to find and facts you don’t want to believe.

Harper vs Strickland?

May 30, 2017

So I watched the replay of the brawl yesterday. Let me caveat this entire thing by saying I know neither of the guys involved. I’ve met Buster but it was never more than a handshake hello. Never heard a bad word about the guy and in some places, people see him as one of the faces of baseball. Most certainly in SF.

If you’re an athlete, fireman, police officer or soldier you’ll understand to some degree what I am about to say. When you earn that spot in the Lockerroom, clubhouse, office or barracks it’s a pretty sacred thing.

That’s your ‘home’ away from home and that ‘team’ is your 2nd family. You are one of the few that earned the right to be there, and that’s not a trivial thing.

Much like the real world, in your ‘house’ everything is on the table. For the most part, you are allowed and have to accept, being made fun of, making fun of, and ragging on everyone.

It’s like your family. You can say ANYTHING about your sister, but if someone outside your family does? They get a beating.

Many times you hear folks talk about retirement and what they miss and most of the time you hear ‘I miss being around my teammates’. 99% of what you say and hear is not publishable, but it is both hilarious and fun.

When you consider the cultural diversity inherent in the makeup of a team, squad, unit etc. it’s almost a necessity.

Why? First off as an athlete there’s the pressure to compete at a level people can’t fathom, every single game, and win. Some guys it eats up, some guys it does not. The city you play in can present challenges, like Boston, NY, Philly and some others.

It’s why the atmosphere is so ‘immature’ and high school like. It’s a way to relieve stress and a way to make EVERYONE feel they’re a part of something.

I won’t compare anything athletically to the others. A fire house, police station, or barracks on base. The difference is when athletes make mistakes we let our teammates, and our fans down. When the others make mistakes people die. No comparison in real world outcomes.

But that’s not to say all involved don’t have an extreme passion, and a skillset, to win.

Why am I going through all this? I want folks to understand how vital ‘belonging’ in that clubhouse is.

There were a few things I went into the game with and wanted to leave the game with. My teammate’s respect and loyalty were the two most important. Never in my career did I intentionally try to jeopardize either. I’ve talked ad nauseam about the ‘towel’ in 1993 and my reaction when told what it appeared to look like.

In my 22 years in sports, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say Mitch was probably the teammate I liked the least, and I’m sure that was reciprocal. However, and this is the only part that really matters, there is not one situation ever when I wouldn’t have defended my teammate, any teammate, in a bench clearing brawl. my

Any issues we had were taken care of BEFORE 7:05 every night because when the bell rang it was about the name on the front of the jersey until the very last out.

Which leads me to the other day. In my life, starting around age 5 until I retired, I’ve never ever seen what I saw the other day. I’ve been in more than my share of bench clearers, but I never remember seeing a catcher stand still, and not protect his pitcher. It’s actually the catchers only job in that instance.

Now let me add this. Scott might have very well told them before the game he was going to do it. If he did that’s a chicken shit move. You don’t drill folks because you sucked. You drill guys to retaliate for your teammates and protect them during the game.

If he DID tell them, I would expect at least one person in the clubhouse to stand up and say “screw that. You want to fight on the playground take that shit outside.” It is and always will be about winning the game. You’ll get your chance if you were truly wronged. Pimping a home run has consequences. Being pissed you served it up can too.

Drilling someone for crushing you is both selfish and dangerous and not just for you.

Hell if someone drills a Giant player, that player should do whatever they do, and then confront the idiot that made it all possible.

I remember Darren Daulton telling a young pitcher “Listen if you can’t pitch inside don’t. Because if you fuck up and I get hit, after I beat the pitcher’s ass I’m coming in here to beat yours.”

I expected to hear that after the game Strickland had confronted Posey or something like that.

But the clubhouse, a good clubhouse, a winning clubhouse abides by the golden rule.

“What you see here, what you say here, what you do here, let it stay here when you leave here”.

So yes I was stunned when I watched the replay and saw Buster Posey standing with his hands on his hips. You don’t check medical history, or use any excuse other than “sorry I didn’t punch him hard enough’.

You live with these guys, you work and win, and lose, with these guys. Ask anyone, you want to be able to stand in that clubhouse, look around at the other guys and KNOW for a fact you have their backs and they have yours. There is no excuse, ever, for that not to be the case.
