And The Beat Goes On

Someone said years ago that we are all born stupid but some of us have to work extra hard in order to stay that way.  Those are not the exact words but that is the gist of it.

DEATH TO THE TELEMARKETERS – PART II

According to the Wall Street Journal the number of these infuriatingly, annoying and thoroughly obnoxious telephone solicitations is pushing fifty billion per year.  Holy shit.  It’s a fucking epidemic.  I myself receive about 3,000 of these calls per year.  I even get calls from THE UNITED STATES.  The first time I received such a call I truly thought that the President was calling me.

And why do they pester me with these calls?  They want to help me with my student loan or mortgage, neither of which do I have.

So how do we put an end to this epidemic which is growing by leaps and bounds?  We should institute the death penalty for the violators.  It could consist of stoning as in biblical times or forcing the culprit to drink hemlock as the ancient Greeks did.   Or we could employ more modern methods such as the electric chair, the firing squad or use lethal intra venous injections.  I would not include burning alive at the stake nor the drawn and quarter method as they are much too barbaric.  I would try to keep it simple.

Seriously, the government could easily put a stop to this practice if it really wanted to.  Or the people could take the matter into their own hands by declaring a nation wide boycott wherein they refuse to pay their phone bills because the phone companies permitted their phones to be compromised and they could easily have stopped this complicity if they would think beyond their cash register.  At five cents per call fifty billion calls comes out to $2,500,000,000.  That’s a pretty big phone bill to give up so easily.

ARE THEY REALLY THAT STUPID.

The best shot that the Democrats have to beat Trump is Biden so why are they ripping him apart?  So he sniffed someone’s hair.  Big deal.  If she really didn’t want anyone to sniff her hair she shouldn’t have primped it so and put it out there for everyone to marvel at.  Of the twenty or so Democrats seeking to unseat Trump, half of them are clowns, a couple of them are pugnacious publicity seekers and the rest of them, with the exception of Biden, were unheard of before they decided to throw their hat into the ring.  So, which of them would you pick to lead our country?

TRUMP PARANOIA.

He wasn’t supposed to win and that’s what started it all.  Plain  and  simple.  Aside from all of the lies concocted against him the one that really got everyone to have a cow was the lie about  his alleged collusion with Russia, which was promulgated by a fake dossier that was conjured and paid for by the opposition.  Every Democrat jumped on this bandwagon and put all of their hopes and dreams on this insane accusation.  Everyone who hated him absolutely loved this narrative, especially the talk show hosts.  And all of the TV commentators happily joined in this massive game of “Telephone” wherein they simply repeated what someone else said, putting their own spin on it and never once bothering to check the facts.

An investigation was implemented, not by the Republicans, but strictly by the Democrats and after almost two years, lo and behold, these Democrats found absolutely no evidence of any collusion, period.  Because the results of this investigation by the Democrats did not fit in with their accusations of the past two years, they now come up with every manner of excuse so as not to have to go along with the findings of the Special Counsel and they are talking about investigating their own investigators.  Now that the report of the Special Counsel is  finally released I find it strange that although it says that there was no evidence of obstruction, they still cannot exonerate Trump.  They must really not like him.

And what of the two Congressmen that have claimed on live TV that they have or have seen the actual evidence of collusion?  They put all of their marbles on this false scenario because it coincided with their wishful thinking and they swore by it so that if Trump did in fact collude, they could say, “I told you so”. Since Trump did not collude, they lied about having or seeing this, “evidence of collusion”.

No matter what the report says or doesn’t say one thing is for certain.  Those who believed in Trump will say that the report is nothing short of a victory and those who hated him all along will say that he is still guilty as sin.  In retrospect, it is also a no-win for either side as well as a total waste of time and taxpayer dollars.

Collusion Delusion

I have a lot of friends, at least I did, as well as a lot of relatives who blindly and unequivocally hate Trump to the very core.  A lot of them are not going to talk to me nor have anything to do with me after this blog airs.  Do I really care?  Not in the least.

For the past twenty two months I have listened to the shrill diatribes of a host of so called TV reporters.  These people are not reporters.  They are commentators playing the game of, “Telephone”, wherein one commentator comments and the next commentator in line repeats what he or she heard from the first commentator, adding their own spin or version of the, “facts”, with all of the participants in this game of, “Telephone”, never once corroborating or fact checking the allegations of the first commentator.  Is this how they learned to do it in journalism school?

An investigation was initiated against Trump that was based on unsubstantiated allegations which everyone now knows were not only unsubstantiated but actual lies as well as being paid for by the opposition.  This twenty two month long investigation was by no means non-partisan.  It was conducted by a group of flaming Democrats, some of whom actually contributed to the campaign of Hillary.

And now that it is all over and the investigators found no evidence of collusion and the Attorney General has stated that there was no obstruction of justice, the Democrats will have none of that and now want to investigate the investigators.  Give me a break.

In retrospect it appears that the Democrats were trying to accomplish a legal coup d’etat or takedown of a duly elected President that was promulgated by a series of lies that have been extrapolated beyond anyone’s imagination.

The media keeps on harping that the Office of The Special Counsel did nail some thirty four individuals.  Remember, the mandate to the Special Counsel was to look for evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians.  So who did they nail, and why?

To start off with there were twenty five Russians, you know, the hackers who were able to penetrate the Democratic National Committee and yet not effect the outcome of one solitary vote.  They’re back in Russia now.  If they were indicted, big deal.  It’s just a lot of window dressing for the Special Counsel.

In addition to the twenty five Russians there was Konstantin Kilimnik, an alleged Russian spy, also back in Russia, who worked with Paul Manafort and Rick Gates and was indicted.

Roger Stone was indicted, not convicted, regarding the leaks of the Wikileaks as they pertain to the missing Clinton emails.  He was the one who was arrested at the crack of dawn with a slew of AR-15’s pointed at him with CNN being notified in advance to be there with their cameras to record the event.

General Flynn pleaded guilty because he allegedly lied to Congress.  What did he actually lie about?  Was it a matter of national security?  Apparently it had to do with his meetings with the Russians during the transition of President Trump.

Richard Pinedo pleaded guilty and served six months plus 100 hours of community service because of his involvement with identity fraud.

Alex van der Zwaam, a Dutch attorney, served thirty days and paid a fine of $20,000 because he lied to the FBI about his work for Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

George Papadopoulos served fourteen days and paid a fine of $9,500 because he lied to the FBI about something or other.

Michael Cohen lied and is still lying.  He did commit bank fraud and tax evasion which has been proven and was the result of the clients he scammed because he was so called practicing law under the color of his being the personal lawyer of Trump.

Rick Gates, a flunky of Paul Manafort, had no choice but to plead guilty.

Paul Manafort, who got caught with his hands in the cookie jar, big time, was convicted and is now in the slammer for a few years.  But his crimes all took place before Trump.

And there you have it.  You don’t believe me?  Google it.

What Part Of “No Collusion” Do They Not Understand

INTELLIGENT LIFE ON EARTH
 
Ever hear of SETI?  It stands for Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence, wherein the scientists probe the heavens for signs of intelligent life.  But they have yet to look at Earth for signs of intelligent life.
 
The Democratic representative from California, who I will not name but you know who he is, said on live TV that he has all the evidence to prove that collusion between Trump and the Russians took place.  I guess he forgot to turn it over to Mueller.  His initials are AS, or maybe it should be ASS.  About sixty five years ago there was a representative from the state of Wisconsin, whose initials are JM, who said that everyone in our State Department is a communist and that he had all the evidence to prove it.  You don’t believe me or you think this comparison was made up?  Google it.
 
People ask me what TV programs I watch to get the news.  I watch MSNBC and FOX.  Why do I watch the two stations that are diametrically opposed to one another.  I’ll tell you why.  A couple go out on a date.  Let’s assume that the couple is a traditional couple consisting of a male and a female or, if you prefer, a female and a male.  After their date, the male is bragging to his friends how easy it was for him to, “score”, etc., etc., etc. while the female is confiding to her friends that she didn’t even kiss her date, not even once.  You know what?  They both lied.  So where is the truth?  Somewhere in between.  Where do I think the truth in reporting the truth lies?  Based on my own assessment of what I have seen and heard, not by what certain commentators have shrilled about on TV, it is certainly not with MSNBC.
 
 
WHERE WAS RUSSIA IN ALL OF THIS
 
Their silence during this entire matter of collusion has been deafening.  If it was the intent of the Russians to harm our country they absolutely succeeded by maintaining their strict silence and doing nothing to dispel the political upheaval, distrust and lies, yes lies, that our media permitted to run rampant and actually participated in. 
 
 
THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
 
When I was a kid I had absolutely no clue as to why the, “founding fathers”, included the condition for winning a Presidential election to be based on the Electoral College  as it made no sense to me.  And then I did a little research.  I learned that If it were not for the Electoral College, a population center or centers such as California or New York could easily sway a Presidential election without any regard to the rest of the country.  While Representatives of the House are based on the population of each district, each state will have two Senators regardless of the population of the respective state, having the same effect as the Electoral College when it comes to passing legislation.
 
Colorado just recently came out with doing away with the Electoral College.  Are they stupid or what?  Don’t they realize that such a move will only serve to reduce their impact on a Presidential election?
 
 
THE DEMOCRATIC LINEUP
 
At last count there are some twenty applicants who want to unseat Trump in 2020.  Some of them are outright bona fide publicity seeking clowns.  Some of them are newly minted wannabes that you never heard of because they only recently crept out from behind the woodwork.  So who could best give Trump a run for the money?
 
Only one.  Biden.  Granted, he comes with a lot of baggage, by today’s standards, but people forget whenever it is convenient for them to do so.  Most importantly, he is not part and parcel of the lunatic left and there is a good chance that he will be the choice of the middle-of-the road Democrats, the real Democrats.
 
If they do pick him, he will need a suitable running mate who has not been overly contaminated by an abundance of adverse press, preferably a female.  Will their choice for VP be Stacey Abrams?  Not likely.  So who then?  My guess is Kirsten Gillibrand.  They do photograph well which is a lot more important than you think.  The only problem that I have with Biden is that he may not want to rely on the election but instead challenge Trump to a winner-take-all fist fight in back of the barn.

Give Me A Goood Shovel and A Pair Of Hip Boots

ELON MUSK IS FULL OF SHIT

We bought the $35,000 Tesla Model 3 with all of the extras so that it topped out at around $60,000, give or take, which included the purported 310 mile driving radius.  What good is a car if it can’t make it non stop from Vegas to LA?  Right?

After making sure that we had a 100% charge we set out from Las Vegas early in the AM.  To make a long story short we were down to 18%, a drop of 82% in battery power, by the time we reached the Lenwood exit just past Barstow which was roughly one half of the way to our destination.  There were plenty of charging stations at that location but no way could we have made LA without a full re-charge.

While at the charging station I struck up a conversation with another Tesla owner and told him of my problem to which he said: : ”The 310 mile driving radius is contingent upon a speed of 60 mph”, to which I said, “Are you kidding me?  Who drives at 60 mph while driving from Las Vegas to LA, except maybe little old ladies from Pasadena.”

You would think that somewhere in all of the literature, promos, TV commercials and so forth, this factor would be made known.  Not a chance.  Not even in the small print.   I guess Elon Musk never heard about, “truth in advertising.”

Other than that, the car is truly awesome.


MICHAEL COHEN IS FULL OF SHIT

This statement is not political.  It is based on common sense.  Why in the world would an attorney, even a crooked attorney, any attorney in fact, roll over on his employer?  The only reason that makes sense is that the Feds really had something on him and they were ready to nail him to the cross, even though he’s Jewish, unless he was able to, “give them something”, anything, even it was only circumstantial or based solely on innuendo.

So what did they have on him?  I’ll tell you what.  He was selling the prestige, or notoriety if you will, of his employer thereby lining his pockets by lining up clients with deep pockets that were more than willing to enter into fat retainer agreements on the premise that this was a connection second to none.  I checked out this premise with some banking experts and they whole heartedly agreed.  Since Michael Cohen was no legal genius, how else was he able to amass a net worth of 100 million?  A few of his deep pocket clients were AT&T, Novartis and a firm that manages assets for a Russian billionaire.  Now he’s only worth a paltry million or two.

I have been trying to find out specifically what he lied to Congress about.  All that I was able to verify was that he erred in his statement regarding when Trump discontinued his negotiations for a project in Moscow, first saying that it was in January of 2016 and then later that it was in June of 2016.  I guess that we’ll have to wait for the Mueller Report, which is supposed to be available on line in a couple of weeks.

In the final analysis, his real crimes included tax evasion and bank fraud, which make sense, for which the charges may be dropped and he may not have to serve any jail time.  It is truly amazing that when someone is about to have the hammer dropped on them how quickly they, “get religion”, and are ready to turn over a new leaf even though it has been shown that certain points in his testimony conflict with known and proven facts.  


THE SOCIALISTS ARE FULL OF SHIT

To begin with, every country that ever tried it, including China and Russia who have since embraced capitalism, either switched to capitalism or are going under if they didn’t switch.  In theory the idea sounds good.  In actual practice it is a dud with no exceptions, a total failure.  Think about it, if you can think.

Is there a happy middle ground?  Well, we already have Social Security and a limited Medicare program for some.  Those are social programs.  In the early sixties someone asked me what I thought about the continual posturing between the US and the USSR and where it would lead.  I pulled out a dollar bill, pointed to it and said, “This is the future, not red, white and blue or red, but green.  In time the USSR will become capitalistic and the US will become more socialistic.  It is inevitable.”  He looked at me like I was crazy.

Socialists who think that they can legislate economic parity in their country have absolutely no knowledge whatsoever about American History or the History of The World.  Remember this.  Abraham Lincoln lied.  Yes, everyone has equal rights, supposedly.  But not everyone is equal.  Some are more equal.  That’s the way it is.  This means that some people for a variety of reasons are able to accumulate wealth whereas some people for a variety of reasons are doomed to failure no matter what they do.  Is this justification for over penalizing those who are successful?

Take Bernie Sanders, the erstwhile Senator from Vermont.  If you Google him you’ll find that he had a lackluster career no matter what he tried, professional and personal.  He’s a Jewish guy from Brooklyn.  What the hell is he doing in Vermont?  Is he a skier or what?  Is he a carpetbagger who got lost and went north instead of south?  Are the citizens of Vermont just a bunch of stupid hicks who can’t find a suitable candidate among their own?  I know, I know.  Richard Nixon from California and Hillary Clinton from Arkansas both did the same with New York.  

Take AOC, the junior Congress kid from New York.  Although well meaning, she is woefully ignorant of the facts and knows absolutely nothing about the history of her own country nor the world for that matter while the appeal to her base consists of the pandering, with pie in the sky statements, to those in the lowest rung of the economic and educational stratum.  

Take Venezuela, at one time one of the richest countries in South America but since they went Socialistic, they’re up shit’s creek without a paddle.

Take some of the new elected representatives that espouse ideas that are totally alien to our Constitution.  It is a fact that if they voiced similar thoughts in the country of their origin or that of their parents, they would surely be imprisoned, or worse.  And some of these newly minted representatives are talking about the latest in-word, that of impeachment.  They should first take the time to read the Constitution.  I did.  No where in it does it mention, not liking someone as justification for impeachment

I Don’t Know Where To Begin

I stopped writing my weekly blogs because, quite frankly, I felt as though I was talking to a brick wall.  To put it another way it was as though I was shoveling shit against the tide.

So why am I writing now?  Because, believe it or not, people have asked me why I ever stopped and that they missed my no nonsense, no bullshit way of getting to the bottom of things.

So where do I begin?

THE FIFTH ESTATE

The press likes to put themselves above everyone and everything, as though they were on some lofty pedestal, beating their chests and proclaiming to all who would listen that a free country is possible only when you have a free press.  Yes.  It is true that a free country is contingent upon a free press.

Over a hundred years ago William Randolph Hearst was the acknowledged master of “yellow journalism”, wherein if you told a lie or offered a distorted point of view long enough, people will begin to believe it.  Where else in the history of the world has this ever happened?

The press no longer reports.  The press comments.  Are we, the American people, so stupid that we cannot decide anything for ourselves and must have the press do our thinking for us?

The movies of the thirties and the forties glamorized the press wherein the reporters, not commentators, always sought out the truth so as to get a “scoop” over their competitors.  And of course to sell more papers.

I am old enough to remember the vitriol and hatred generated by the insanity of the Hollywood Blacklist and the unsubstantiated accusations attributed to the McCarthy era.  Even then the press joined in what was expected of them.  In the case of the Blacklist, the alleged perpetrators were hounded incessantly and eventually could not work at their craft unless they flipped on their friends or associates or were able to work under an assumed name.  In the case of McCarthy, it took a courageous person, namely Edward R. Murrow, a reporter, to call him out.  The point I am trying to make, is that the press, even if it violently hates someone or something, it must present the facts without any bias and more importantly, independently verify what it prints and not simply repeat the headlines of its competitors because it fits the moment of the time.

Case in point.  Just recently a minor player on a TV series apparently decided to cook up a fake attack upon himself in order garner attention and perhaps help his career.  Without any of the facts of the alleged attack being investigated, the media ran wild with the story and before you could say, “Jack Robinson”, it was plastered all over the TV networks with the various commentators, not news reporters, blaming President Trump for the attack, calling him just about every name under the sun.

When I was a kid and lived in Baltimore, MD, a young girl about my age asked me where I was from.  When I said, “New York”, she automatically assumed that I was Jewish and said, without having any facts or evidence, “You killed Christ”.  Needless to say, I was completely dumbfounded and my response was, “I didn’t even know him”.  Duh.

Lo and behold, the Chicago PD is now filing charges against this actor, apparently for having concocted the entire story and causing them to waste vital resources that could be put to better use.  Yet those who were so quick to rush to judgement when the story first broke are now saying that, “We should first wait until all of the facts are in before rushing to judgement”.  Duh.  Double duh.

THE PARTY OF MY PARENTS

I remember when I was about ten years old asking my mother about the two political parties, the Democratic and the Republican.  Her answer was that the Democratic Party was for the people and the Republican Party represented the rich.  I believed this for a long time.  Over the years I learned, to my surprise, that with the exception of Harry Truman, all of the Democratic Presidents in my lifetime were rich.  So much for representation.

Once upon a time political violence was something that was applied by the rich in order to break strikes and employee representation.  Today, almost all of the violence in the political arena originates from the side of the Democratic Party and is directed towards anyone who doesn’t agree with them.  Whatever happened to free speech which was once a hallmark of the Democratic Party?  Whatever happened to our colleges and universities where free speech was once a virtue and differences of opinion were to be debated without resorting to violence?  For this new curriculum in our colleges and universities where violence replaces thought and reason I blame the instructors and the officials who employ them.  Their job, as I see it, is to teach young minds how to think and not how to hate.

 POPULATION CONTROL BY ANY OTHER NAME

It is true that runaway population growth, when combined with advances in health care, new ways of farming and agriculture and the absence of wars and plagues, provided that comet with our name on it never reaches us, we will at some point in the not too far off future be faced with simply having too many people on this planet.

It is true, at least I think so, that organized religion promoted unfettered propagation of our species, not merely on religious grounds or the sanctity of life, but primarily to swell their ranks.  When I was a kid the population of our planet was a little over two billion.  In eighty years this number has increased by three and one half times so that it is now over seven and one half billion.  Where are we headed?  You do the math.

It is true that there are a number of people on this planet who, until such time when genetic engineering is more than a textbook phrase, should voluntarily refrain from procreating.

I have always believed that abortion is not something to be decided on by politicians and is the prerogative of the mother.  What I don’t understand is how certain politicians now actually condone and promote abortions up until the time of birth.  Talk about the swinging of the pendulum.  Have these parents of unwanted children never heard of contraception?  What the fuck were they ever thinking?

A Nation Of Lunatics

Is this what we have become?  Ever since I can remember we Americans have been constantly bragging that our nation is the greatest country on the planet – but recent events seem to belie that claim.

A little over a year ago we had a shooting at a softball game.  A softball game between the Democrats and the Republicans.  A softball game.  Can you believe that?

A year ago we had, so far, the largest mass shooting ever that took place in Las Vegas.

We have also had over the years countless shootings at places of worship as well as the deadliest of all sneak attacks, bombings of children.

Aside from the reasons as to why, the single common denominator of every last one of these acts is that the perpetrators, without any question, are all sniveling miserable cowards.  They are cowards because in every case they have sought out and attacked ONLY those who are unarmed and have no way of defending themselves.  They never have nor will they ever attack anyone who is armed and ready to stand up to them.  That is their undeniable M.O.

Why do these cowards act the way they do?  For certain, one reason is that the punishment for the crime is either non-existent or totally inadequate.  And furthermore, in most instances the one committing the act never believes that he or she will actually be  held accountable for their actions.

As of late another reason for this inappropriate behavior is the cavalier attitude of some of our elected and or appointed officials who prefer to speak before they think.  Even when they encourage people to simply get into other peoples faces at public venues, it is surely a precursor to the next level.  It is also bad manners which reminds me of a child having a temper tantrum when not getting their way.

And don’t blame the problem on guns.  Guns don’t kill people.  People kill people.  If you review the background of all the shooters you’ll find that they are not members of the NRA but are people who should never be allowed to possess a firearm because they are either psychologically or socially disturbed or worse.

So what are we to do to counter this epidemic which has engulfed us?  To begin with laws must be enacted which will provide for punishment in kind.  These laws should be federal so as to counter act the effect of sanctuary cities or sanctuary states.  Politicians that promote in-your-face confrontations or outright violence must curtail their rhetoric before things get out of control.  The rule of law must be paramount because without it we will have nothing but anarchy.  If you don’t like the law, then change it, legally, unless you really do prefer anarchy.

“Not I”, Said DI-FI.

I had no intention of saying anything about the Kavanaugh/Ford situation, until now.  Enough with the politics.  What we need is a good dose of reality.

We have hordes of well meaning and some not so well meaning people running around calling Brett Kavanaugh a rapist.  A rapist.  CB Ford never said that he raped her.  She said that he tried to pull her clothes off (she had on a bathing suit under her clothes) but she was able to get away (with her virtue intact).  She also said that this incident scarred her so that she was unable to have normal (sexual) relationships for the next five years or so.  She also has no recollection as to where the incident happened or when it happened or how she got to where it happened.  All of the the four witnesses she named who would supposedly concur with her what happened as well as where and when have categorically denied that the incident ever happened.

Is CB Ford lying?  How could she be lying?  She took a polygraph.

I spent a total of twenty three years as a Reserve Detective with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, most of those years with Special Victims wherein we dealt with child abuse and all kinds of sexual abuse cases – real cases.  If this were one of our cases it would have been thrown out.  If we insisted on going forward with it, the DA would have laughed at us.  I also spoke to two judges on the merits of this case; one from Los Angeles County and the other from Orange County, both of them in California and both judges agree that there is no case, period, end of story.

What do I think?  After watching and listening to all of CB Ford’s testimony I think that she is not playing with a full deck or is out to lunch or both.

During the hearings the other day, the high school yearbook of Brett Kavanaugh was brought to the forefront with life size blow ups of certain of its pages.  Yes, the yearbook conveyed images of high school idiots running amok.

What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander or what’s good for the Gander is good for the Goose.  Right? Whatever.  When you compare the high school yearbook of Brent Kavanaugh to that of CB Ford it pales in comparison.  At first I thought of including her yearbook as an attachment but decided against it because it is truly garbage.  You don’t believe me?  Then you can Google it for yourself.

Who leaked the now infamous letter?  In law enforcement we have the concept of, “the chain of evidence”, wherein the evidence is tagged, bagged and then logged in or documented.  It is also shared by the prosecution and the defense.  CB Ford’s letter was given in confidence to Di-Fi around June 30th and she sat on it for about six weeks until it was somehow miraculously leaked.  CB Ford also gave the letter to her Congress person and to her legal team.  So who leaked it.  “Not I”, said Di-Fi.  All we know is who had the letter.  Someone intentionally broke, “the chain of evidence”.  I think that the public would like to know and the only way to find out is with an impartial investigation.

I am old enough to remember Senator Joseph McCarthy and his antics during the fifties.  Senator McCarthy (R) and his chief henchman Roy Cohn ran rampant accusing almost everyone in the government of being a communist planning to overthrow our country.  Then too, as is being done now by certain individuals and or groups, McCarthy accused people without one iota of evidence, ruining some of them in the process.  He was able to get away with it until some brave individuals stood up to him saying, “enough is enough”.  What McCarthy did is referred to in the textbooks as, “McCarthyism”.  What we have running rampant today is a form of, “sexual McCarthyism”.  Think about it.

How do I think it will play out?  Assuming that the FBI does not come up with anything new that is incriminating, Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed with a vote of at least 55.  I also think that after the confirmation he will tell them to stick the job up where the sun never shines.  No matter what the final vote, the Democrats did a number on him and his family that will follow them wherever they go.  They don’t need it.  Brett Kavanaugh can get a job with any number of prestigious law firms as a partner and he can certainly write his memoirs for a goodly sum.

Death To All The Telemarketers Part II

It is definitely reaching epidemic proportions but whose fault is it?

I blame the phone companies because they have the wherewithal to stop this abuse.  They can do it but they won’t.  And why won’t they?  Because it represents PROFIT to them.  Think about it.  Millions upon millions of calls made that would otherwise not be made no matter how short the duration.  A call is a call is a call.

In my case it has reached the point where I can no longer answer my cell phone lest I be barraged by calls for things that don’t even pertain to me.  They want to help me with my student loan even though I never had a student loan.  They want to re-fi my mortgage even though I don’t have a mortgage.  They want to lower my credit card interest rate even though I don’t have a credit card balance.  It goes on and on and on.

I get calls from places that I never heard of.  I also get calls from the United States.  Yes, the United States.  Can you believe that?  Could it be that the President is trying to reach me?  I sincerely doubt it.

Unless I absolutely recognize the number of the incoming call I no longer answer my cell phone.  I use it solely for making calls.  Should my provider give me a discount because I cannot use my cell phone for incoming calls and they are complicit in this abuse?

This blatant abuse will most likely never stop until some of our representatives are also plagued by these unwanted intrusions and they get up enough courage to ignore the lobbyists of the phone companies and pass legislation that would restrict them.

Now that we know that the phone companies are complicit in the abuse of almost every person in the country, what else are they guilty of?

They are guilty of not permitting us to have extensions on our cell phones.  Why extensions on our cell phones?  Simple.  So you can leave one of the phones in your car all the time and not have to remove it and put it back every time you get in or out of your car, forgetting it half of the time.  They let you have extensions in your home or in your office so why not in your car?

I’m Back

I decided that I needed a long overdue break from all the bullshit that was drowning us.  During this hiatus I could not help but notice that lunacy and insanity are still with us and seem to reign supreme.

THE CIA

Starting off with the CIA, did you know that they have been around since 1946.  That’s a total of 72 years during which time they have had a total of 25 different directors, each one serving less than 3 years on the average.  Most of them were military men or had worked their way up the spy ladder.  Sometimes the job was given out as a political plum because of the inherent prestige attached thereto.  Up until the current ex-director, whenever any one of them was replaced or retired, they simply left office without any fanfare or taking potshots at their employer, which is the way it should be when you consider the sensitive nature of the position.  The current ex-director is unusual in that he is not a professional spy who worked his way up the spy ladder nor did he start out with the OSS.  In fact he is a professional bureaucrat who became a converted Muslim and even once voted for the Communist Party.  Don’t take my word for it.  You can GOOGLE it yourself.  And now he is pissed off because his security clearance was yanked?  If he is no longer with the CIA why does he still need a security clearance?  It seems to me that he is just a fucking crybaby.

NIKE

They must be out of their mind for choosing their current poster boy.  But this is still America and they can choose whomever they please, even Adolph Hitler if they so decide.  I looked up where their corporate headquarters are located.  It is in Portland, Oregon, which certainly explains a lot.  Their next stockholders meeting should be an interesting one.

ALL THE NEWS THAT’S FIT TO PRINT

That’s what it says on the front page of the New York Times.  Can you believe that? And I always thought that in our country a person has the right to face their accuser.  What the NYT did is no different than any other newspaper publishing an anonymous letter stating that A.G. Sulzberger, the publisher of the NYT is nothing more than a degenerate pedophile or whatever.  Shame on the NYT.

BIG TECH – BIGGER BULLSHIT

Boy, do they and their smarmy lawyers know how to lie.  I have had conservative stuff as well as some anti-Obama stuff actually ERASED  from my iPad by sources unknown, so I know from practical experience that they do lie and that they lie big.  I for one find it incredulous that a handful of dweebs and twerps have the power and ability to become the self anointed guardians of whatever we are permitted to see, say or do.  The Nazis espoused this tactic as far back as 1933.

DISRUPTION OF THE HEARINGS

I don’t think there is anything illegal about trying to disrupt the current hearings in our Capital but when I look at the images of the protestors on the TV screen they look to me like nothing more than a bunch of disgruntled, unemployed losers who could not possibly know anything about our judicial system.  But we should never judge a book by its cover, especially when the cover is ripped.

THE RETURN OF THE BIG O

It was inevitable.  Leaderless and clueless, the Democratic Party had no other option but to recall the Big O.  Let’s face it, the guy is an incredible speaker.  The heads of the Democratic Party have surely been floundering around as of late and seem to be completely out of touch with reality.  I can remember back when the word Democratic  actually stood for something.  But that was a long time ago.

TRUMP’S BIGGEST MISTAKE

Everyone makes mistakes.  Trump’s biggest mistake was that he did not get rid of ALL of the Obama appointees the day after he took office.
