After the stimulus-Watch out

The government is going into the red bigtime to provide “Paycheck Protection” or the stimulus or whatever you want to call it, much as we did after Pearl Harbor.

Here’s something to watch out for that is also like the post-Pearl Harbor era.

90%-plus tax rates.

We cannot continue to run multi-trillion dollar deficits.  Who is going to buy our debt?

Previously, China bought a lot of our red ink. Does anyone think post – Covid 19 that they will do it again?

The money has to come from somewhere.  Right now there is talk about some sort of Treasury bonds, and that might work, but it didn’t provide enough money fast enough after WWII.

At some point, we have to pay the govt. back for this free money, sometime down the line, even if it isn’t Trump, someone will figure out that like any loan, we have to pay it back.

 

 

About church services.

Someone asked how I feel about arresting pastors, imams or priests, etc.  who encourage the faithful to congregate in churches.

Instead I would ask, is it their God, or yours?

I get that there is comfort in numbers but really, is this the right time?

If you have a Bible, Torah or other religious tome, and you accept it as the word of your Almighty, can’t you derive solace from those words in your own home just as well as you can in a dedicated building?

Should pastors etc be arrested? I would say no, because without their flock to preach to, they would not be in their churches.

I do think we may have to start fining people who can’t get “social distancing” through their heads.

No one is saying you can’t worship, but think about whether you are endangering others when you decide where to do it.

Post-impeachment.

Now that the current impeachment push is over, what should happen next?

Well, for one thing, you do NOT want to be the next Democratic President, unless it’s 30 years from now.

For another, supporters of the President are clamoring for the reinstatement of the Sedition Act. They absolutely see what has been going on as an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States.

Beyond that, it gets far too profane to reflect it in this blog. Probably the kindest thing we have heard the President’s enemies called is traitorous, and Mrs. Pelosi…well, perhaps you can guess without us having to document it here.

Mrs. Pelousy says she tore up her copy of the SOTU speech because it was full of lies.  Another Trump-hating Democrat went on TV to assert that the President has “…told 15,000 lies since he’s been in office.”

We’d sure like to see those 15,000 lies written down, so they can be fact-checked.

All in all, this is 1968 all over again, but with the potential to be far worse.

No one, no matter how much they support Trump believes he is “perfect,” but he is certainly no worse than a President who crossed the Atlantic and trashed the nation he was supposed to serve and protect and whose wife said she had never been proud of her country.

Which brings us back to the first question.  What now?

Ideally, this should come to a full halt, but as Jerry Nadler has already said, it isn’t going to.

It’s entirely likely that Trump will be re-elected in a landslide. As for his House and Senate enemies, about all Trump’s supporters can do legally is to campaign against Pelosi, Schiff, Waters, the squabs, and Nadler not because they don’t like Trump, but because they are setting the nation up for a socialist takeover.

As for Mrs Pelosi…perhaps we could send her a box of Huggies or Luvs?

Can we pray for laryngitis?

If you have watched any of the so-called “impeachment trial” you have been treated to the mellifluous sound of Adam Schiff’s voice. The man talks, and talks, and talks, and talks, and talks, and talks and – – – -.

Hopefully, the left’s allotted hours are about over.

Actually, most people are not watching.  They may have tuned in for a few hours on the first day, but the Democrats started sounding like a broken record, so most tuned it out.

As we have mentioned before, it is almost criminal to have to pay for these people to trash Trump and his supporters, but unfortunately, there is no way to charge Schiff, mini-Nadler and Hakeem J. with grand larceny.

One thing Dimocrats fail to note is that during the 2016 election, the Obama administration, which included Joe Biden, was aware of and possibly even orchestrating the Russian hoax.

Trump most definitely did target Joe Biden, but if you read the whole Ukrainian call, it was tied into the 2016 election.  Does that mean he couldn’t mention Biden? In fact, was Biden even running against Trump at the time? Not that we noticed, at the time.

Hopefully, one day this will be over.

BTW, where is the Durham report?   It isn’t just President Trump who is at fault here.

TGIF- January 17, 2019

Can we hold their paychecks?

Can anyone explain why we are PAYING Congressional windsuckers to continue with this impeachment BS?

One, pissing off some members of the House of Representatives does not qualify as a high crime or misdemeanor.

Two, If the “impeachment” doesn’t meet the constitutional definition, why do we need a Senate trial?

Now, if we could go back in time and retroactively impeach some of the morons who have committed “crimes” equal to what Trump is accused of doing, that might be worthwhile.

We know now that Joe Biden did exactly what Trump is accused of doing. And G.W Bush’s administration lied about weapons of mass destruction. Obama, far from being loyal to the country, went out of his way to trash America on the world stage.

No, those aren’t high crimes and misdemeanors either, but heck, in for a penny, in for a pound.

And thanks to this boondoggle, we can certainly do it in the future.

Puerto Rico disaster aid.

And speaking of money wasted…hopefully someone is going to watch how the $16 Billion we are sending Puerto Rico is being spent this time. Not that they don’t need the money…they do. But we need to remember the mayor who swore they had no potable water, while standing in front of pallets of the stuff?  According to her, the town couldn’t use the water because FEMA “owned” it.

Whatever the problems last time, we need to be sure the taxpayers don’t get bilked again.

 

Impeachment, with an asterisk.

And so it begins.   We speak of course of the move to invalidate the will of 2016’s voters,  more formally known as the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.

Perhaps not everyone is glued to their televisions, but make no mistake, America does know the effort to overthrow the President is in its last innings.

We tend to agree that there is little to no chance that he will be removed from office, despite the animosity of certain “soft” Republicans.

And of course history will record that he was impeached, although that impeachment will itself be defined by an asterisk.

According to some Democrats, they can impeach him every week if they so choose, and certainly they have tried to do so multiple times.

They eventually got a vote on impeachment on what even some Democrats admit are at best flimsy grounds.

But the question remains:

Why?

Because they think he is morally indecent?  He has a lot of Presidential company in that crowd, even including that venerable Democrat, JFK.

Because he is in Russia’s pocket?  Only an idiot or a dyed-in-the-wool ideologue would believe that after the findings of the Mueller report.

We believe that there is more to it than that.

Call it big government devotees or socialism,  there are an alarming number of people who do not believe in government by the people, for the people. Rather, they believe in government OF the people, not as a political theory,  but in the same way the Mafia ruled Sicily.

Yes they do hate Trump, not because he was or maybe even is a gigolo, or has a foul mouth, but because he derailed their plans for America.

And for that reason, we think it was more than appropriate for Nancy Pelosi to be wearing pink as she chortled her way through signing the articles of impeachment before finally releasing them to the Senate.

Is impeachment driving voters away?

More and more we are hearing voters say “F— this impeachment crap.  Washington doesn’t give a damn about voters, so why should we waste our time voting? Democrats just use it to ignore us .”

You really can’t blame them.

In the only civilized way they knew, Trump’s voters tried to tell DC that they were tired of business as usual.  For that they get to be called racists, uneducated rednecks and any other derogatory name Democrats can think of at the moment.

So far, the discontent with our government has not resulted in wholesale street demonstrations, such as those in Iran, but it could happen. It has before.

Maybe it is true that the “average” voter doesn’t pay attention to impeachment, but they damn well know that nothing they wanted Washington to address is being done.

Perhaps Democrats better think about what will happen if they continue to push this “Dump Trump” agenda.

After all, we put up with Obama for eight L-O-O-N-G years. Surely Democrats can do the same.

Edit:  If you don’t think this is possible, read this jerk’s tome.
