It's getting more difficult every day to find anything good to say about our government. Those who have said it in the past were right. The government can’t solve our problems. The government is the problem. Paul is keeping at least one Party, and perhaps both, in Congress.

      I don't agree with Noam Chomsky on much, but he at least got this right: we do not live in a democracy, and there aren't two parties - there are just two factions of the same party. They are both driven by an insatiable thirst for power and wealth. When they get in positions of power, they pick the pocket of the public treasury (Peter), pay Paul, then point the finger of their free hand toward someone else and blame him.

      Now, having said this, I am amazed at how we Americans seem obsessed with personally siding with one political party or the other, as if they care about anything beyond your donations and your vote. Democrats make no bones about their relationship with Peter and Paul. Republicans make some bones. Let's put it this way... you might like one or the other Congressman-or-woman better based on his or her personality. But rarely will one do what you sent them to DC to do. And electing someone based on the cult of personality, as America did in the case of President Obama, is what an adolescent does. A big smile doesn’t make a kick in the ass hurt any less. Then again mental adolescents are the kind of voter our education system and culture are producing nowadays.

      Does anyone really think Democrats are upset because, as they fabricate, President Trump is taking us on the Trump express train to Fascism? Hah! They are upset because theyre no longer the dominant party in DC. Now access to Peter’s cash, and the opportunity for big-time corruption, is going to the other guys. That, dear reader, is why Democrats are so dead set in getting power back at any cost. God knows which one of them, or their media cohorts, will claim the next addled thing.

      To Congress, America is nothing more than a money mill, and you, dear citizen are the grinding stone. Don't expect them to fix anything, don't expect them to pass any kind of legislation that reeks of good sense, this is not the Washington Way. Their way is to distract you with nice-sounding rhetoric and pie charts, big smiles, promises of good legislation to come, and convincing handshakes... but these tricks are not much different from the magician who moves his left hand with theatrical flair in order to divert your eyes while he picks your pocket with his right hand.

      Perhaps Donald Trump, not a fan of the Congress or the media, really will try to drain the rat's nest, or if you prefer, “the swamp” called Washington, DC. Any way it's done will be a good thing. It's the only hope we have of Peter holding on to any of his dough, and using it to do the things it was intended to do.

      And speaking of rats, do you think Congress gives a rat's ass about any of the people they pretend to be fighting for? Don't make me laugh. Their pretense at “caring” is an excuse to print and print and print paper money, thereby devaluing the dollar and causing massive inflation to be on its way to your town. They stole Peter’s Social Security Fund. After they weasel Americans' IRAs and savings, whatever we may have left will be worth less and less as inflation takes its toll. Worse, all the political correctness the Democrat Left is foisting on the weak-kneed public is designed to marginalize and discourage mainstream America. The ultimate effect is to make the closet and basement people the new mainstream America, while we traditionalists are labelled racists, homophobic, xenophobic et al., and now we are locked in the basement.

      Meanwhile, Washington looks the other way. Democrat or Republican, Washington DC is guilty of decades of dereliction of its duty. I don't want Congressmen to work for nothing as some have suggested. I want all of the liars, phonies and colluders the hell out of there. Until someone comes up with a reliable honesty-meter, political terms should be limited. Very limited!

      The government may be robbing Peter to pay Paul, but even before Paul gets his, a big chunk seems to go missing on its way through Congress.

      Wake up, America! Stop accepting, without question, what the Parties, the Media, and the special interest groups are foisting on you. Until you do, neither Peter nor Paul will actually get anywhere good.



Updated from 2009


I am afraid America still doesn't understand what Obama meant when he famously said "We won."

He didn’t just mean he won the Presidential election. That was obvious. What he really meant was that “we” – he and his Democrat backers – won the war of ideologies. In the culmination of over a hundred years of preparation, the Left was now in charge of the greatest country the world has ever known; and they were “going to change it.” Their generations-long silent coup took America without a single shot being fired.

How many times have you heard the old axiom that a democracy is only successful until its voters realize they can vote themselves greater and greater benefits?

There are now more people living in the US who are sympatico with the Left and their America-Last Socialist/Marxist goals than there are on the Right. Conservatism has lost the day, not because it’s wrong, but because it no longer has the numbers. The Democrats have bought the masses.

Now they are illegally importing young immigrants who are willing collaborators in the Democrats’ underhanded plans to turn them into another captive voting block. They can’t legally vote, you say? Don’t make me laugh. The Democrats say Republicans are hard-hearted haters of children, and the Republicans run for the hills. So the kids will stay. And soon enough, when election time rolls around, it will be “...Republicans are denying poor people the vote...” And again, Republicans will fold. Why? Because white conservatives are fundamentally decent people reluctant to show even the slightest appearance of being mean-spirited. Democrats long ago discovered America’s vast reservoir of white guilt. They know they can always play the opposition for the saps they are.

The Left promised voters free stuff. This “free” stuff is coming from the pockets of the wealthy (the Hollywood contingent who maintains it is very eager to pay higher taxes), from struggling businesses, and from the next generation of American children who will pay for it in the future. Democrat leaders pretend to beat up on the wealthy while doing their best to become one. Are moneyed liberals now so rich it doesn't matter to them? Maybe all their money is off-shore. In which case, it’s our grandchildren and their children who will be footing the bill. That’s assuming America still stands.

Now here's the really bad news: there is a mighty good chance this may never change. It may be over for conservatism in America. Because once you give voters free stuff, they will vote for you forever and expect free stuff forever. And there is no one willing to stop it. Oh, there’s plenty of rhetoric. But the Republican Party is ineffectual, and with a few notable exceptions, cowardly. They do not have a route to recovery. And if Democrats manage to load the Federal Courts with more of their ideological cronies, and continue to get the full support of the mainstream media, it may be many cycles before we see another Republican residing in the White House, if ever! Why? Because Republican Party Puritans are incapable of agreeing on a candidate with the right charisma, guts, the right style... in short, the right stuff. Someone who knows the zeigeist of our times.

The economy may eventually recover, quite probably on its own. Obama will claim credit and his zombies will say “See!?” But Miss Liberty will still be neck deep in debt. She may have to pawn her crown.

Ever since the “let it all hang out” 1960s, dominated by Leftist cultural icons and their demands for equality for “all,” the Right has been cowed into looking the other way, allowing the Left to open the basement door, letting the freaks out. People who in the past would have been locked in the basements and attics of America have been “normalized,” and are now elected officials and White House operatives. They are somewhat creepy, and weirdly passionate about creepy Leftist issues, obsessed by women’s rights to birth control, abortions for all, same-sex marriage, removal of God, crosses and any other religious symbols (other than those they are pushing), and so many other issues which do not advance America’s traditional values. The Basement People now run the country, and I really don’t think you and I will ever get them back down there in the dark where they belong.

How did this happen? It’s simple. The old Left vilified anyone who dared criticize their creepy supporters. How dare you racist, homophobic, xenophobic conservative bigots criticize anyone other than white Christian men! Dumbing-down our educational standards so that few kids have any idea what Jefferson, Madison, Franklin and Washington did for them. And the sheeple followed the “Paid” Pipers of the Left, raising their fists in a salute to the make-believe patriots of the Left.

Now that they are in influential positions, the basement people throw your tax money around like so much rice, to foreign illegals – so many from unfriendly nations! – who live here increasingly in enclaves with their own rules and cultures. There are now so many enclaves, so many violent gangs of all cultures intimidating the cops, the courts, the prisons and the citizenry; so many entertainers, teachers, professors, writers, lawyers, judges, media people, and all the rest, all of whom are sympatico with a Leftist President who now wants Yankee ingenuity to be locked in all those same cellars along with all conservative thinking.

Yes, conservatives are outnumbered. More so if you count the long-dead voters who continue to vote Democrat. You cannot win National elections that way. Until they adopt new ways, the Republican Party has been reduced to an also ran. When their hundreds of little websites ask you for money, I suggest you tell them all to go to hell. Republican politicians pretend to be shocked by how they keep losing political arguments. In reality they are enjoying the DC Dash to Riches. Why else would anyone spend millions to get elected to an office which doesn’t pay as much as they spent? They protest in the media, while enjoying the benefits of your tax dollars, pretending to be trying so hard to work for you, while showing you absolutely no tangible results.

Benghazi? Months of Congressional hearings. No tangible results. IRS? NSA-CIA spying on citizens? Fast & Furious? Border problems? Investigation of AWOL U.S. soldier accused of trying to join the enemy? Many months pass, still no final report. The list grows longer every day. Theory seems to be string out investigations and hearings long enough, no one will remember as new scandals constantly emerge.

Unless there is a radical change in the Republican Party, future Presidential elections will be won by Demokrats via the votes of their bought and paid for supporters, those who have accepted tickets into a different kind of slavery. Voters who believe it’s better to rely on the government to support them because they don’t think they can do very well on their own. To do well demands hard work with success or failure dependent upon your own initiative and talent.

The Left’s plan is simple. Redistribute America’s enormous wealth any way it can be done while still making a plausible argument that it’s not socialism. They say it needs to be done to save the country. To stave off this or that crisis. But their real goal is to have everyone be just a little bit poor, dependent upon Big Government to some degree for their daily bread, their education, their healthcare and their thinking. The banks are effectively nationalized as are many industries. Their proudest achievement – the bright red Marxist Stars of the healthcare system and Big Media. Energy producers? Any other industry that wants a Deal. Add them to the likes of Amtrak, the Postal Service and Social Security. All sterling examples of how well Big Government can run industries. Is this not well on the way to Fascism?

What can conservative Constitutionalists do? I see three alternatives. 1) Do nothing and allow them to finish the job of destroying America... to which every President in modern times - except perhaps Reagan - has contributed. This will lead to a completely Balkanized America. And then? God only knows.

2) Republicans can canonize a leader. A presidential candidate more appealing to the sheeple by virtue of his or her being good-looking, glib, smart, and most of all, telegenic and of today’s zeitgeist. Someone who can out-maneuver the opponent to get elected, then be the strong conservative America needs after he or she is elected. Perhaps an already-made celebrity who is very comfortable in the political arena. It can’t be another affable, mature fellow in a suit. It has to be someone who appeals at once to conservative whites, Latinos, blacks and yes, people who are not even entitled to vote. I for one can’t see anyone like that on the Republican horizon. A nicer-looking-woman than Hillary? Another cocky black guy? Nah, we’ve had enough of them already. Too bad Clint Eastwood isn’t in his youthful “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” stage. If Christie and Cruz are the best Republicans can come up with, well, they have virtually no chance of actual election.

So, alternative number three:

3) This is the stuff Hollywood films and rewrites of history are made of. An exciting idea that, somehow, always seems to backfire. A coup designed to cleanse the government of far Leftists and their corrupt ideology. Carried out by the remaining brave, patriotic loyalists in our intelligence, justice, and DOD agencies, and loyal followers who actually want to protect what they swore to – The Constitution. Men and women who didn’t volunteer to serve in a Socialist Republic (and who have managed to survive all the firings). We have a perfect place to house the guilty after they are arrested and charged with trying to overthrow The Constitution. Guantanomo. It’s the next best thing to the basement. It’ll be empty by then, and maybe some of the water-boarding equipment will still be available.

It is obvious to every right-thinking American that we simply cannot continue on this path and survive as the once-great nation we were. Maybe that’s it. Maybe my generation is the last of those who remember how the Sleeping Giant awoke and made the earth thunder with her mighty footsteps. Has the Giant again fallen asleep, to dream the dreams of giants? Or has she perished, a victim of her own success?


The Far Side of the Cesspool

It’s difficult to believe how many dumbbells inhabit the U.S. I mean, sure, we all know that most folks across our land aren’t rocket scientists. We’ve all seen the videos of people doing the dumbest this and the stupidest that.

But I am still trying to get my mind around what just happened in this election. Yeh, yeh, it’s great... America elected its first black president. Well, to be more precise, we just elected our first half-black president who may or may not be a natural born citizen. Okay, fine. The Media doesn't care. What the heck, the Media and Democrats and Lefties... hell, the whole world claims it loves this man.

And why do they really love President Obama? His personality. They think he is cool and clever. He was blessed with a million dollar smile, and an easy-going way about him. He is the American Idol candidate, equipped with all the accoutrement for winning a national popularity contest. He is wildly ambitious and full of confidence because he has seen that at every step in his life, there have been people there ready, willing and able to support him with their Leftist ideas and money. And the opposition, such as it was, was afraid to say what I am saying because they were afraid of being branded with that dreaded "R" word. But that’s it. That’s the sum total of the package America just elected.

Obama, we are told, is very bright. And the evidence of this is what? His best-selling book was penned by his friend and supporter Bill “Fire in the Hole” Ayers. Barack apparently never wrote anything of consequence for the Harvard Law Review while he was there. He seems to have got wherever he got by others carrying him. They saw in Barack an empty vessel into which they could pour their 18th Century dreams, and they found a willing vacuum cleaner. But they also got themselves a Sgt Schultz. Remember Schultz from the tv series "Hogan's Heroes?" He was the big Nazi schlub who couldn’t seem to recall anything which might implicate him... when asked, he would always reply "I know nnnothhhhhhhhh-ing!" Like sitting at your church for twenty years and not recalling hearing anything controversial preached by the Reverend Wright and others. Or any one of those other things that haunted Barack during the campaign, things which the Mainstream Media did its best to subdue. And it worked. But this inability to recall things, to admit the truth is also his Achille’s heel. It will haunt him. Face it, what we have witnessed is a kind of silent coup. All forces of Conservatism have been railroaded out of power and we now have an Administration and two Chambers of Congress driven by strongly Left-leaning politicians ready to shovel money into everyone's bank account but yours.

How did this come about? It was as if there was a cesspool full to the brim with Chicago politicians and other corrupt forces, and here comes Barack. He spies the White House on the far side of the cesspool. Being quick and light on his feet, he manages to skip across the cesspool on the heads of all those willing to stand in the muck for him. As soon as he steps on a head, he sort of forgets who that person was and how that person helped him keep his trousers clean. When he reaches the other side, he never even looks back, just smiles that smile for the cameras and moves on toward the White House.

Obama's great campaign promise; Change. A model of the fine art of pr. What does it mean? It's crafted carefully to mean absolutely nothing, but allows the dumbbells in the audience to fill in their own ideas of what "change" means. To that poor struggling young African-American lady it meant Obama would be paying her rent and her car insurance and healthcare, a free Obamaphone, and maybe even free gas for her Obamacar. To college kids, it's free tuition and room and board at a great University. To the far Left it means pulling out of Iraq, abandoning Israel, tossing out the water boards, emptying out Guantanamo, and a whole bevy of other changes they dream about. To some it means free birth control. And if that doesn't work, free abortions. The list is long. To Nancy Pelosi it meant a great big gavel in her hand with which she could clock Republican Congressmen, and no more GW Bush. But what does it really mean?

Nothing. It's the same empty promise every slick politician in history ever made. Vote for me and I'll give you stuff and you won't have to pay for it. It works every time. Free stuff for all. But once elected, "free" isn’t what you thought it was. Oh, there's free big money for the rich bankers and brokers and lawyers and CEO's. And some for the heads he stepped on going across the cesspool. There's a little bit of free stuff for those at the bottom. But to the vast Middle it means higher taxes and dollars worth less every day.

Some people’s talent is in knowing how to look and sound bright without really being bright. It’s a practiced act. I don't know about you, but I've encountered the type before. If that's your idea of bright, well, okay then, I hope you are happy with what happens in the next few years as your country becomes more and more dependent on the Federal Government, and more and more socialistic. But those others I just described... none of them ever had a freakin' clue what to do. Because they had ambition and they had personality, but they had no core convictions. Without convictions a person is open to suggestion. And the next round of suggestions will be coming from the heads he's stepping on in the much larger Washington DC cesspool. It will be good for us all if he can manage to make it across without falling in. But I wouldn't count on it. Those presidents who are reelected generally loose their footing in their second term.

Is Rush wishing failure for the Democrats? No more than Democrats wished failure for Bush and the Republicans. Let's put it this way, GW got his fancy Texas boots all mucked up trying to get across that odiferous DC cesspool.
