Let’s take a look at who the Democratic party of 2017 is.
Let’s begin with some facts first. There is no 60 votes ‘standard’ for a Supreme Court Justice.
Here are the SC justices totals
- Elena Kagan: 63 to 37 (2010)
- Sonia Sotomayor: 68 to 31 (2009)
- Samuel A. Alito Jr.: 58 to 42 (2006)
- John G. Roberts Jr.: 78 to 22 (2005)
- Stephen G. Breyer: 87 to 9 (1994)
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 96 to 3 (1993)
- Clarence Thomas: 52 to 48 (1991)
- Anthony M. Kennedy: 97 to 0 (1988)
- Antonin Scalia: 98 to 0 in (1986)
As you can see two of our justices didn’t get 60 with Clarence Thomas barely nudging over 50.
So once again Chuck Shumer creates a lie and passes that on as news.
And lest we forget here’s a quote from the man himself.
“Look, when a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules,” Schumer said. “You should change the nominee,” he said. “Sit down and work with us, and we will produce a mainstream nominee,” he continued.
By the way, there has NEVER been a partisan filibuster over a Supreme Court nominee much less one of what is probably the most qualified judges in the courts’ history.
And also let us not forget the Messiah of the Democratic Party and his take on Filibusters.
We had a full year of hearing Joe Biden and Barack Obama and the rest of their liberal sheep screaming about the unfair tactic of holding up Merritt Garlands confirmation.
Let’s take 1:44 seconds to remind ourselves how two faced and fraudulent these people are.
Oh and his boss? Ya, here he is playing both sides as well. They all do.
You frauds. Here you are, recently, changing the very rules you’re bitching about now. You reap what you sow and you deserve every single thing you get.
I want you to Filibuster because every second you do a Conservative is born.
And then you have Nancy Pelosi. This video is who and what she is. Despicable, liar and screwing her party and the American people day in and day out.
Chuck Shumer? Here he is also playing both sides.
So yes, the Republicans are going to invoke the nuclear option and they’ll be both justified AND doing the will of LEGAL Americans everywhere.
In a 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of a brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois liberals found their “holy grail” in a number. Regardless of the lies and omissions to get it, they got it and then the disseminated it around the world so that now you, and every other sheeple that can read, buy it.
Stay with me….
3,146 surveys were returned and responded to.
So let’s get the first two “facts” on your 97% in place.
- A 2 question survey was sent out BY?
- Www.questionpro.com (a professional online survey site)
With me still? 31% of 10,257 scientists responded to a TWO question TWO minute survey.
What were the questions?
#1) “When compared with pre-1800s levels, do you think that mean global temperatures have generally risen, fallen, or remained relatively constant?”
#2) “Do you think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures?”
They had to ask scientists two questions most every human with a degree from a non-liberal college, or a GED, could answer.
Still with me? Two questions, 10,257 folks surveyed, 3,146 answered. Where does the 97% come from?
Of the 3,146 “scientists” who responded, get this, 77, yes you read that right SEVENTY-SEVEN were “climate scientists” who had even half their ‘work’ peer-reviewed in “climate science journals”.
Still there? So that’s .02447% of the respondents who the left even considers ‘experts’ on the subject.
By the way, for those counting at home? Those 77 represent .0075% of all surveys sent out.
Ready for the big reveal?
The multi-trillion dollar ‘Climate Change, Global Warming, Ice Age” scam got its “97%” number, a number our last buffoon in chief quoted, because of the .0075% respondents of a survey, that’s 77, 75 of those 77 said yes to question 2.
THAT IS THE ENTIRE SUM OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE ARGUMENT. 75 of 77 scientists who HAD ALREADY PUBLISHED PAPERS on climate change agreed that human activity is a ‘significant’ factor in changing “MEAN GLOBAL TEMPERATURES”
So ya, you want to perpetuate the bullshit feel free, but you’re both a sheep and a mouthpiece for the white liberal elite scumbags trying to tear down this country.
Oh and also? You’re ass kissing people who ask you to bend over daily in both Liberals and Hollywood, neither of which adheres to ANYTHING relating to responsibility for this planet.
Here is the pretty pictures I know you need to understand the “sciency” stuff.
Like every single profession on earth, baseball beat writers have diversity. All sexes, races, sexual preferences, religions and everything else you can imagine. It also has some amazing people, some horrible people and some in between. Nothing about that job makes it any different than the job you or anyone you know, goes to. The differences mainly begin, and end, with their positioning as it relates to career accomplishments in sports. For some reason many years ago people felt writers would be the perfect choice to decide who ‘gets in’ and who ‘doesn’t’ when it comes to pro sports hall of fame not to mention who wins and who loses on most every postseason award.
Before we go any further I want to make sure anyone reading this knows one thing. I’ve known Jerry Crasnick a long time. His article about me, the HoF and Twitter is the reason I write this. If you don’t like me, please stop reading or make sure you don’t respond in the comments. Chances are I don’t know you, you don’t know me and neither of us cares what the other thinks.
Anyway, as I was saying. Writers have been given this “power” to be judge and jury when it comes to many accolades in sports. Accolades many feel define a player and/or their careers, or should accompany them to the grave as their tombstone scrawlings.
None of this is meant to be condescending as I am unsure they are any more or less qualified than die hard sports fans in major sports hubs. However, I don’t think you could find many, if any, other options that would be better, worse, the same, as what we have. Players and coaches are often times either too close or don’t care. As a player, I always took the players choice awards deadly serious because I always felt that the opinions of my teammates and peers ruled over all else when it came to playing the game.
The only award I ever openly spoke about during my 22-year career was the Roberto Clemente Award. My wife and I spoke about that in 1992. Clemente was my dad’s idol, and by admiration mine too. I went to one MLB game in my lifetime as a fan, the final game of the 1972 season between the Mets and the Pirates and I watch Mr. Clemente get career hit #3000. He would die later that year in a tragic plane crash bringing aid to survivors of the Managua earthquake. He would be killed on my dad’s birthday 1/1/1973. It was one of two times in my life I saw my dad cry.
But that award, that man, represented everything right about the game and life and the award, to me anyway, was one you could not pitch for, you couldn’t play for, but you earned by espousing and representing the things Mr. Clemente did. I knew in 2001 that no matter how the World Series ended, my dad would be smiling down on my family.
So when the rants began this year, as they did last year, and people started directing comments my way and writing articles about me ‘losing support’ for the Hall of Fame, I sat back. Like I always do. I muted the idiots talking stank on Twitter, I just blocked FB trolls who had nothing to add to any conversation.
In my career, here is a list of things I did NOT do.
- Hit my wife, ever
- Hit a woman, ever
- Drive drunk, ever
- Do cocaine, smoke weed, or any of the other crap, ever
- molest a child, ever
- rape a woman, ever
- sexually assault someone, ever
- Say anything remotely racist to anyone, ever
- Bully a teammate
- Go after a fan
- Steal money
- Steal anything
- spit on an umpire
- Do steroids, ever
- Do HGH, ever
- bet on the game, ever
- Throw at a players head, ever
- disrespect the game in any way on the field, ever
- Never lied to ruin another person’s life to retain my ‘legacy’, ever
Using recent numbers from 2015 onward to create the template.
There are 18.8 million vets in the US
There are 3.9 million with service-connected disabilities
There are 7.2 million 18-64 in the workforce
There are 405,235 veteran owned businesses (north of 5% of all US business)
2013 numbers were 54.2 billion in VA Spending. 64.8 billion in disability and 14.4 billion in education.
Per some recent figures US Businesses have ‘stored’ over 2.1 Trillion dollars in profits, overseas. These same companies talk about programs and helping others, and here’s how.
The Veterans care act will begin with a 210 billion dollar fund. 10% of the money repatriated from overseas as a “tax” will actually create the foundation for this legislation.
First some numbers and some ‘rules’ going forward.
Under the VCA the Veteran and spouse pay no taxes. None. Not a dime. While in active service. Robbing Peter to pay Paul if there ever was an example. No income, no state, no federal, nothing.
Veterans median income is 38,978 dollars.
Veterans will now be responsible for the first 2000 (number can be worked) dollars of their families health care in a calendar year.
Veterans will be required to “pay in” to the VCA at a rate of 150 dollars a month minimum, they can pay more if they choose. Believe it or not, I know veterans that absolutely WOULD pay more and/or do.
Now those would be minimums. You could offer to pay MORE of your initial health care, which would result in a lesser rate of monthly contribution.
This will be a minimum of 3800 dollars per the calendar year.
Also very important. Veterans and their families can choose where, when, who and why they receive health care. There should be absolutely no limits on our veterans ability to seek health care given the fact that they’re offering up their actual health itself, for our country.
Disabled, unemployed veterans will still receive the full privilege of remaining in this program. Once you become an FTE of another company offering healthcare you will move onto that program.
7.2 million 18-64 veterans x 3800 per year would be covering the first 27.26 billion per year of health care costs for each other.
This is very much the medi-share model but with a huge reserve to start with.
Truth be told I would also like to create this very same program for our first responders/police officers.
This is a rough draft and a template at best for what could potentially be a solution to health care and our military. They should NEVER have to worry about where and when their care is coming.
Today in America children in California are crying, flags are being burnt in protest. People running around with “F Trump” signs.
Really? I mean really?
The group that’s railed on ‘fear mongering’ for months is once again that which they despise.
How about a reality check.
First off we now know the MSNBCs, CNN’s and most others in the mainstream media, as well as our political polling systems, are ‘part of the problem’. They conspired in every possible way to give Hillary Clinton this election, and they lost. They need to pay for that.
I honestly believe most of the polling companies committed some sort of flagrant fraud on their clients and the American people.
But let us get to the important stuff.
This was not a white man’s election.
This was not a black man’s election.
This was not a latino, Hispanic, Cuban or women’s election.
This was not a gay, trans, bi or pansexual election.
This was an election about the whites, blacks, Cubans, latinos, Hispanics, men, women, gays, trans, bi’s and everything else that make up THE MIDDLE CLASS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
If you’re poor, and you cannot provide for your family, the government will NOT stop taking care of you. Liberals have been saying since the 1930’s they are ‘your party’ while having never done a thing to lift those in poverty, out.
If you’re gay, and you’re married, the government is not going to nullify your marriage. part of the liberal rhetoric was aimed at some sort of false assault by Conservatives on gay rights? Where is that assault? Why on earth would ANYONE expect our government to insert itself into our bedroom, chapel or bathrooms?
Remember at the top of our founding document?
“WE THE PEOPLE”
That’s who needs to be addressing the social issues we all argue about, we the people, not the people we elect to govern.
If you’re an illegal citizen of this country who wants to BECOME a legal citizen, this country will still provide you that path.
If you want free college? That’s likely not going to happen.
If you want to milk a system because you’re too lazy to make your own life? That’s likely going to be more challenging.
If you’re a member of the KKK? You’re still going to be the racist scum you were yesterday. Who is in the White House will never change that.
You won’t suddenly be subjected to cross burning or mosque destruction today because Donald Trump won the election. The racists that do those things will STILL go to jail under a Trump presidency.
There won’t be a sudden uptick in Klan marches and rallies with government backing. I know people like Van Jones would have you believe different, but freedom loving Americans yesterday that hated everything about the KKK, Westboro Baptist Church and the violent segments of the BLM movement haven’t suddenly donned cloaks or hoods. We still hate them.
If you’re a part of the movement that’s advocating and actively pushing for the execution of our police officers? Life is about to change for you too.
If you hate Jews, or you dislike Israel? My bet is you aren’t going to like our next administration much because they’ll work on behalf of both.
If you wanted more government intrusion into your everyday lives, or even worse, others? Don’t see that one coming to fruition.
If you’re a nation that supports or harbors terrorist it’s a better than average shot that we may “like you” under this current administration, but that’s about to change.
If you want to come here, if you are a refugee fleeing war, a woman, a child, a father with his family that is fleeing in terror, my bet is the Statue of Liberty and her promise will remain.
If you live here, and you wish harm on American’s, I’d bet your best course of action is to change objectives or leave.
My governments FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT priority is the health and well-being of my family and fellow Americans and for the first time in a good while there is someone in the white house who I trust cares about that just as much as I do.
I know you’ve been taught different, but I’ll say it in hopes it starts to gain the traction it deserves. Those racist events you experienced today, yesterday, the past few years? Those didn’t come up yesterday, those people didn’t become racist when Trump won.
Just like their counterparts in the Black Lives Matter movement and the Black Panthers, those people existed BEFORE this election, well BLM was created BY this administration but that’s another story, and they will unfortunately for us all exist long after this election.
As long as our Constitution remains in place, and unchanged, we’ll have to deal with scum like that for the rest of our lives. It is one of the “price you pay” tenants of truly being a free nation.
Donald Trump wants to repatriate TRILLIONS in US money stocked overseas. Why is that bad? Why not take the money and pour it into our 15-20 most poverty stricken cities? Help rebuild? Help keep our word to help those that cannot help themselves? Incentivize the Microsofts and IBMs, Googles and Facebooks who ‘say’ they want to help the poor, now make them prove it in a way that benefits EVERYONE.
Donald Trump wants to deny Iran a path to Nuclear weapons. Why is that bad? They have proven every single day of their 5213-year existence (which is how much I know of) that they never have, and never will live on a planet where Israel is allowed to exist and where “Zionist” (that’s you and I) are allowed to live. This administration lied its ass off when they presented the nuclear ‘deal’ and one only needs to look at Israel’s reaction to know.
A Donald Trump administration will stop in its tracks, any thought that we will ever again negotiate with Terrorists. This administration has and will cost us dearly in the past few years, as well as the coming ones.
But let me be clear, and this is obviously just MY opinion.
There is NO CHANCE any of this is going to happen without some ‘pain’. We’ve spent decades wanting to ‘help’ and to ‘aid’ but so few have ever been willing to pay the price. Well, it’s time. It’s time to rectify this runaway trainwreck, it’s time that we as Americans endured some pain after 40-50 years of ‘partying’.
We have debts, we have goals, we have heroes we have warriors and we have people who will travel around the world because their CiC says so, to defend people they don’t know. We have all of these things, but most importantly? We as a people now have full control over how we address them.
The Conservatives of America will now have a President, a Senate, a House and soon a Supreme Court. If we don’t come together to show minorities, to show the poverty stricken and the poor we are and have always been the party of the people we’ve always known ourselves to be then shame on us.
Yes I am a conservative, I am a VERY PROUD American. I love my Constitution, I love my country flaws and all, but at the end of the day I’ll be the first one to yell from ANY mountain if these next four years are not spent fixing the divisiveness this administration has foisted on us and if there is even the slightest hint of appeasing people that mean to kill us at home and abroad.
I would be remiss if I didn’t actually close by noting a few of my more memorable moments from last night’s election coverage.
- The sight of Juan Williams stumbling, time and time and time again, to find the words to explain away the stunning defeat of his candidate with anything and everything but the real reason. She lost because she does not represent what Americans want for our country. Oh, and the fact Obamacare is destroying our middle class.
- Van Jones on CNN. I wasn’t alive during the Cuban missile crisis. But after seeing the black and white commercials of school kids hunkering under their desks (what was that actually going to do? Like a seat belt on an airplane?) in the case of nuclear war I could see him as the parent speaking to his kids the night before. He was talking in terrified tones “What do I tell them when they wake up in the morning?”. “What are we supposed to tell our kids about the things a man like him says and does?”. Never mind his candidate is as despicable as any human ever. Oh, and what will become the new racist word for the left, “Whitelash”.
P.S. Last but most certainly not least. Our Government, before it’s “Crusade” for illegals, needs to address our veterans and their families. We need to create a system that provides free private health care to our veterans and their families. If the State Department can “misplace” 6 billion dollars with no repercussions, we sure as shit can find the money to take care of our men and women and their families who serve.
The Affordable Care act is now proving what ANYONE with common sense said would happen. It’s going to go to becoming the unaffordable care act, to the broke act, to the single payer Gov’t model, then blow up.
For anyone on the fence, for anyone that thinks “Everyone should have health care” which is EVERYONE by the way, for everyone voting for Hillary, here’s a small example of why the next 12 months will see the ACA DESTROY the middle class financially AND self destruct after milking them dry.
We’ll use simple population numbers to make it easier to both explain and understand.
1,000,000 citizens (Legal American Citizens)
Top 1% = 10,000
2-50% = 490,000
bottom 50% = 500,000
Per 2015 averages it costs 24,671 dollars a year for a family of 4 to pay for health care.
So that amounts to 24.67 billion dollars for these 1m people to pay for health care. However the bottom 50% are NOT paying for health care today so…..
Right now that top 50% pays ALL 24.67 billion, through a system of taxation that creates the revenue needed to cover the 12.38 billion the bottom 50% cannot afford.
We are seeing an AVERAGE increase of 25% in premium cost. (BTW Arizona is +116%).
So all 1,000,000 people will see an increase of 6167.00 per year in health care costs to bring the family of 4 total to 30,838. That’s now 30.838 billion for all 1 m people to receive health care. So what we now have is an increase of 6.167 billion a year for this group of 1m people.
However we must remember the cost to the bottom 50% is still 0, they don’t get ‘hit’ with a tax increase they already don’t pay. The top 50% will once again take on 100% of the burden to cover the original health care costs PLUS another 6.167 billion.
The top 1% could care less, that’s not a number that moves the needle. But after that? That’s where this falls apart faster than a Clinton deposition.
That’s right, you guessed it. That 3.083 Billion is ALSO paid by the top 50%. So not only does YOUR health care costs increase 6,167 dollars but you and your fellow middle class tax payers are going to be ponying up ANOTHER 6,167 dollars per family in taxes, either direct federal income, state or sales. Most likely ALL 3.
To the top 1%? Who cares, 6 k here 6 k there. But to the middle class, the very fiber that holds this nation together, the middle class blue collar hard working family? 12,000 dollars a year? Are you kidding me? No, that’s not a joke. I’m going to bet NO ONE in the middle class is looking for a place to spend an extra 12 grand a year in payroll tax, income tax or any other tax.
Hillary Clinton’s “tweaks’ will do NOTHING but add more $$ burden to those already paying the way for everyone else. You can’t ask for more money from someone NOT making enough to pay into the system today can you?
This is clearly a very watered down simplification, but start thinking about what this means on a nationwide scale not just for you and your family; but this is going to financially hammer businesses that require health care for FT employees OR, and this is what I think everyone expects, companies will move away from FT employees altogether when and where possible and also CUT JOBS because the hits to their margin will be staggering with no offsets. So it is either price product through the roof or find another way to cut costs.
I wasn’t being facetious or a smart ass above when I stated (Legal American Citizens). Because this is where the entire thing not only goes off the rails, but burns in a fiery death and takes the middle class with it.
If Hillary and Democrats get their amnesty initiatives passed, which is pretty much “Open Borders” as she’s stated more than once. We’ll go from 15-20 million illegals to how many? I say how many because when FAMILIES of illegals who do not live here yet are granted amnesty they will POUR into America. We’ll go from 15-20 million to 40+ million in a blink of an eye. Health care? You’ve seen absolutely NOTHING yet.
The system, and the middle class, self destruct under the weight of a system unable to pay for itself.
What happens then? Then the government steps in to ‘take care’ of the problem. And we all know how that ends.
Check the data, check the amount of companies pulling out of states. MANY americans now only have 1 option for health care and some are left with only the gov’t option.
Here’s a poll I want someone better at numbers to tell me where the flaws are here.
By my counts:
50-38% of 874 likely voters means 437-332 with 105 undecided or Johnson/Stein voters
36% Dems = 314
31% Ind. = 270
27% Rep = 236
FWIW that leaves 5% of the polled folks not affiliated with anything….
Let’s assume both Dem and Rep ALL voted party lines (not a bad assumption but will have to suffice)
That would mean the following
For Hillary to be at 50% 123 of the 279 Ind voted Dem (46%)
Trump would need 96 of 270 Ind voters (41%).
Still leaves 13% (113 votes) either undecided or Johnson Stein.
So am I wrong in assuming what this says is a record Republican turnout and a national split of 46-41% of undecideds means Trump wins in Reagan fashion?
