A Conservative View

WILL AMERICA WAKE UP?

I read an article on Townhall.com this week written my Kurt Schlichter titled “There is a Conservative Wave Coming in November”. There is not another American alive that hopes this actually happens more than I do. I will share some of his quotes and pose some other thoughts to hopefully see if Americans have really had enough.

“Conservatives are going to win them going away, and it’s going to be gloriously devastating to the progressive cause”.

“Get ready to savor the delicious taste of victory.”

“The numbers look slightly GOP-favorable now but the final vote tallies will be much higher for Republicans”.

If you go back and read the conservative articles, including ones I wrote, predicted the same optimism that resulted in one victory and two losses. Republicans won the majority in the House, Obama was re-elected and Harry Reid remained Senate majority Leader. Why?

Read another quote Kurt made “Even in the best of times, Democrat-voting losers dedicated to a vision of government as a feeding trough for those embroiled in social pathologies need plenty of incentive to get their ample behinds off the couch and into a voting booth”.

Republicans are manipulated and mesmerized into thinking that Americans that are “social pathologies” are too lazy to vote. We have an entire Justice Department focused on making sure that the poor and unemployed fully understand that working Americans owe them the right to get the, “free stuff”, free. This means the Progressive-Democrats will get 90% of the minority again. Thinking they will not vote is the usual conservative insanity, they will vote. Next, Obama’s promise to 13,000,000 illegal aliens of amnesty just cemented 90% of the Hispanic vote will be for Progressive Democrats when they are alone in the voting booth.

The real reason the Progressive-Liberals win is the women voters that Kurt did not address in his article. The female issues that got Obama elected twice still are the reason the Democrats win big elections. Even though most women are truly conservative they watch the Republicans divide themselves consistently by pressing the abortion issue and dividing themselves and restricting women’s rights.

If you want to observe a live fight where women’s rights are the battle cry, tune in on the current Texas Governors election. This is a preview of what we can expect in 2016 if the Democrats nominate a women for President. It will surprise me if we elect the woman running as our Governor in Texas as the candidate is better qualified to be a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader than Governor.

In my opinion the national Progressive-Democrats have planned and funded Ms. Davis race for Texas Governor to pave the way for a woman to not only run for President in 2016, they will win again. If they do win the Texas Governorship, winning the White House again will be a cake walk. Their only danger is making a Republican type mistake by nominating a woman politician instead of a true and respected leader.

I am working on another article focused on hopefully getting American women to find a true leader that can focus on uniting instead of dividing Americans like our current President has successfully accomplished. We need to reverse the designed political hate that has infested our great country.

I will support a woman for President, if one ever surfaces that wants “ALL” Americans to have a job and a better life. A welfare society has never survived and never will. For that matter I hope that we can find a leader, man or woman that can place healing our hate and uniting the people in front of getting re-elected. It is a shame that Clint Eastwood is not interested in running. Clint is like Ronald Reagan who was the last leader we have had a chance to vote for. Old Clint and I are both 84 and too old.

WHO RUINED THE AMERICAN DREAM?

The average American over fifty dreams of those golden years of their life that they worked so hard to enjoy. Unfortunately far too many do not take the responsibility to adequately prepare themselves. What scares me is that more than half of all Americans today depend on someone else to work and pay for them to just survive. Can you imagine the chaos when these people reach retirement and the welfare “well” goes dry? Thanks to Obama, Eric Holder and the Democrats, the Dead, those on welfare and illegals can still vote in most states but they don’t pay taxes.

Why does Congress, our President and the media ignore the basic facts that our country used to be the most creative, successful and free society to “EVER” last over 225 years. We did this because people from all over the world saw an opportunity to be free from ruling power oppression. They came here, or were raised like myself, to work hard, create their own opportunity and enjoy their dreams.

We had leaders who understood that people must have jobs to even be able to ever retire. What happened to change our government’s objective to provide opportunity to continue to enjoy our freedoms to that of just buying those votes and let someone else worry about the chaos later? Will my generation be the last to even dream about having any golden years?

The Golden years should be a time in your life when you should not have to worry about anything. Eliminate the alarm clock, walk in the park, go fishing, play golf, pray if you want to and smile when you wake up each day. Ignore all of life’s distress and the people who create it. Smile all day, surround yourself with friends and family who make you laugh. Love those who treat you well, pray for the ones who are unable to be happy for whatever reason. Life is too short to be sad or worry about anything. If our government would refocus its desire and create jobs everyone could again focus on the American dream.

Think about some important facts. There must be peace within all Americans. Every American and most legal immigrants used to understand that you are exactly where you are meant to be. All people are born to achieve every possibility that your health and mind can perceive. We are all filled with infinite possibilities that are born in yourself and others. Use these gifts to meet every objective you set for yourself. Pass on the love that was given to you. Accept the facts of any physical or mental defects you inherited and just try harder. Be yourself just the way you are.

What can you do to support the critical need to refocus our Congressional priorities, vote for those who pledge to stop the destruction of our Republic form of Government? Vote for those who promise to create jobs instead of entrenched Democrats who just promise more welfare to keep the poor people poor. Poor people and illegal aliens can’t create jobs.

Ladies, you are primarily responsible for the leaderless government we suffer with today, so I have two questions.

1. Is having free contraceptives for men and women, old and young, your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

2. Is having free contraceptives for your teen age daughters your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

Ladies, birth control is a parent’s responsibility, not the governments. Roe vs Wade is the law of the land and no one is powerful enough to reverse it now or ever. We need jobs instead of more illegals who do the work we pay lazy ass Americans on welfare to avoid that work. This is just “common sense” not rocket science.

Vote on November 4th to restore the American Dreams.

HAS THE MEDIA AWAKENED?

WOW!

My friend Bob McGraw sent me this article today and what a shock. I have wondered, like a lot of Americans, if our national media would ever wake up and report the news like they have before Obama was elected President. I understand why Democrats elected this unknown, untested, Muslim educated and mentored master of reading propaganda from a teleprompter. He can certainly mesmerize the weak, female, minority voters and the poor with his Socialists promises. How he has hoodwinked the media will someday be recorded by the historians as the biggest con event the world ever witnessed. Please share this with as many cognizant voters that you know before the November elections.  C Brewer

By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz  addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)

And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

PS: Please send this article to all family and friends throughout America and ask them to read and distribute this article to others.

TEXAS SCHOOLS – PART ONE!

POLITICALLY MOTIVATED DESTRUCTION.

Reading the Beaumont Enterprise yesterday an “Opinion” column, which is normally slanted so far left I just ignore it, a headline caught my interest. “Texas must study how others fund schools.” The first sentence really grabbed my attention, “The one piece of good news in last week’s ruling by a judge who declared the state’s public school finance system unconstitutional was that his ruling doesn’t take effect until next July.” Shades of common sense still escape our legal system as all decisions are now 100% politically driven. Our finance system for our schools has been unconstitutional for twenty years at least. Our entire state education system was high jacked by the Legislature a long time ago. This is a leadership problem and in Texas it is controlled by the Republicans instead of our national education disaster that is mismanaged by the Democrats. 

When I went to Texas schools, the teachers were not required to pay for liability insurance to protect them from lawyer inspired frivolous law suits. Parents were required to discipline their children, not the teacher. Teachers did not have to learn martial arts to protect themselves from both the students and parents. Educators developed and approved textbooks, not politicians. I was given a chance to learn and my parents were responsible to motivate me to succeed. Failure was a biGGer problem when I got home than it was at school.

Watching one of the finest education programs in America being destroyed by politics is one of the saddest things I have watched in my 84 years. I am so old I only went to eleven years of education and graduated high school at sixteen. I finally finished my education with a Master’s Degree at forty seven. Now it takes fourteen years of education to graduate high school and today most who do graduate are qualified to possibly have an eighth grade education, when compared to what I was so fortunate to receive. Most, not all, graduate from college today with an education equal to what I received in high school. My teachers spent 100% of their time teaching and every student was given an equal chance to learn. Teachers taught their subjects and it was my responsibility to learn. Teachers were not evaluated on how many students passed some standardized tests that were developed in England, authorized by elected politically motivated and seldom qualified ego driven individuals swayed by narrow focused feelings rather than facts.

If that is not bad enough the money provided is by politically driven lawyers who are elected to serve in a State Legislature that is a part time job. The only reason most even want to be elected is an ego trip and a way to sell their professional services to the public when they are not in session.

Now schools “have” to take children who are so disabled physically and mentally they have zero chances to ever contribute to society. Making the schools provide what is nothing more than healthcare or baby-sitting is a tragedy. Having to hire full time nurse’s for some should not be intertwined or funded with education money. This actually penalizes those students that have no disability other than being a little slower to comprehend. I have witnessed children locally that can’t even feed themselves being cared for by a nurse one on one every day.

All afflicted children need care including some who even have a remote chance to actually learn something. We had this when I was a student but it was done in a separate facility, not in the normal schools. Making these children attend normal schools is a significant drain on the education money that is politically provided and is grossly unfair for the teachers and those children who actually have to struggle to understand.

“Part Two”, will address;

1. The failure of our politicians to provide adequate funding for our Texas schools that is readily available now.

2. Why the elected leaders are more concerned about getting elected and re-elected than they are about the children.

3. Why do the religious hypocrites fight to refuse providing the readily available funding that we watch go to the states of Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana. Arkansas will likely join the others to suck up the money Texans pay for recreation that the Baptist’s can enjoy where they are  not recognized. The price we pay for cowardice?

CLINT EASTWOOD REQUEST

MY TWILIGHT YEARS

As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end.

There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn’t any “more.” No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.  It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, “He was my friend, and I know where he stood.”

So, just in case I’m gone tomorrow, please know this:

I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!

Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.

Regards, Clint

Make my day, Pass it on. I did.

Clint was 84 on May 31st and I will be 84 on August 31st. I certainly agree with every word he said.  C Brewer

DEMOCRATIC FACT!

Quote of the Century.

H.L. Mencken (born 1880 – died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic and Democrat.

He wrote the lines below in an editorial for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”

—H.L.  Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

 

So it was written, and so it has come to pass.

 

Thanks Jerry

OBAMA MATH LESSON!

Do you still want a hybrid car because they’re cheaper to run?

  No comment necessary.

Cost to operate a Chevy Volt……interesting

Eric Bolling test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.

For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine. Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.

It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.

According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.

16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.

Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000………

So the Government wants me to pay 3 times as much, for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country…..

REALLY ??

Where do I sign up?

Thanks Chris for helping women, blacks, dead voters, the disabled and those on welfare how to  understand how Obama and the Democrats are helping us, out! If he had one more term women could get free government issued Burkas along with their birth control pills.  CB 

OBAMA – POLITICAL OR CONSTITUTIONAL JUSTICE?

“OBAMACARE DIVIDES FEDERAL COURTS”

This was the recent headline story in the Beaumont Texas Enterprise. The next header read, “Opposite rulings issued hours apart, Cases could go to the Supreme Court”. Why will it take months to settle this issue? No leadership.

What on earth has happened in our land of laws? We have replaced using our Constitution as the basis for our laws and replaced it with the platforms of the Republican and the Democratic political parties. The sad part is our main stream media has also changed from reporting the news to publishing whatever it takes to divide the people with the Democratic liberals receiving 90% of the bias.

We now live in a leaderless vacuum. We have a President on steroids changing some and ignoring other laws in what ever way he chooses. We have a Justice Department that enforces only the laws they desire and sue the states if they try to enforce the laws that the federal government refuses to enforce. They should be forced to publish what laws they refuse to enforce and save a lot of money. It would be nice to know how many liberal lawyers Eric Holder has hired in six years.

To me we have a government that is so bloated they have to keep issuing regulations to make sure they don’t have to do honest work like the rest of our people. If they keep the people divided they will never have to  worry about their own retirement. Supported by Harry Reid and a Senate gone mad, they have completely destroyed most retirement plans for anyone entering the work force. They have made healthcare the responsibility of the government instead of programs provided by industry for centuries.

Who loses, the working American and the loyalty we used to have between the worker and the business owners. For the first time in my nearly 84 years I have zero confidence in our governments. Why, because we have no leaders to even vote for, that will even try to unite Americans. Congress and the President should either follow the Constitution or legally change it so that the people will at least know what laws apply for them to follow. Even third world countries would not allow the elected leaders to destroy or ignore the documented legal system.

What really disturbs me is we have all Federal Courts and the Supreme Court unable to read the Constitution the same way. Every decision made is to comply with the political agenda of those appointed by the Senate and approved by the President currently in power. Qualifications are not even necessary if those appointed have donated enough money to the political party or its candidate in particular that votes for their conformation.

It would be refreshing to see even one critical decision made by the Judiciary at any level that was not politically motivated. Like everyone else I find some of our laws offensive but I was raised to follow the laws even if I oppose them. I dream of being able to vote one more time in my lifetime for a real “Leader” who at least promises to unite Americans again. The way things appear today even my grandchildren will never have a “Leader” to vote for in their lifetime. Even our military has no leader public recognizable like we have had during most of my lifetime. If I am wrong please tell me who you recognize as a leader, just one will be a surprise. I will research them and report what I find.

If the current leader, John Roberts, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, was a real leader he would stop all of this political decision making by both the Supreme and the Federal courts. A real leader, if he is incapable, would resign and ask our military to replace Congress with public servants instead of lawyers who make politics an occupation. Will it take a civil war to unite America one more time?

OBAMA’S MEXICAN STANDOFF!

It is a crying shame that Obama’s Democrats and the Republicans in Congress are playing Russian roulette, without live ammunition. They use illegal aliens, avoid following the laws and see who can best divide the people to name a few of their methods to destroy our Republic.

I have written so many articles about the inabilities of our incapable President and I am tired of having nothing positive to use as a subject. Every time you think something will happen to break the cycle of political games of “Chicken”, another crisis is politically created to shove all current standoffs off the front pages.

The current alien brouhaha created by Obama himself, may be one crisis that he can’t avoid the blame or say George Bush and the Republicans created the problem. He has so many things screwed up he has run out of slush funds to cover it up. He should just admit that this was his biggest mistake since he married “Michelle the Grinch”.

Sadly for us he will shame the Republicans into giving him another $3,700,000,000.00 to fast track these poor Mexicans and Central American women and children to be American citizens. Then they can demand that the husbands and mothers who shoved the kids into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, with the help of the Mexican government, to come raise them here.

Just think that we will have another million Democrats to vote and the Federal Government will force the states to pay for their welfare. What’s another million when we already have at least thirteen million to take care of already?

The worst thing is that the entire event was staged to get Democrats elected in Texas and Arizona. Good old Barak openly came riding into Texas last week to do some fundraising. Why did he refuse to have a photo-op with the thousands of children he actually invited to break our laws?    

Apparently he has raised the tempers of his solid Democratic legions in California when he bussed thousands of these children for them to care for. If the mass exodus of Californians increases much more, even the Democrats there are afraid of the tax increases that will follow. Even the existing illegals are scared that their welfare may be over soon with the latest infusion of Obama’s children.

If the leaderless Republicans in Congress had an ounce of common sense, they have an opportunity make Obama admit his mistake. Obviously we are watching poor children being used as ammunition by the Democrats. Obama wrote the book on deflecting responsibility and he has masterfully watched the Republicans fall into the same trap of blame again. IF they fail to appropriate the 3.7 billion, they will be blamed for starving these political pawns.

John Boehner, read my suggestion closely. Appropriate these funds with the following conditions. Make the Immigration Service use only federal facilities that are located in Washington D.C. to house and feed every illegal alien in America until their status is settled. Have all of these children bussed to the actual location of the politicians who invited them to come.

Just think a few thousand could be put up in tents on the White House lawns. Let the Supreme Court have a million to watch over. Harry Reid could have a couple of million and send them to Nevada if he desired. Queen Nancy could take care of a couple of million by just busing them from southern California to San Francisco, if the Capitol offices are too full. Give old Eric Holder a million or so to stay in their offices at night. The IRS could possibly find an illegal that can teach them how to hit the “SAVE” command on their computers. Give the State Department some to watch over and stop them from insulting our allies if we have any left.

If this does nor absorb the entire group of people who broke our laws, give the rest to the National Park Service who can house them on federal property. I wonder how many state Governors would approve my suggestions, even Democrats. If the people ever awaken to see how re-election politics has replaced our laws as the way our government functions, the folly will be over. Larry, Curley and Moe could have done a better job of leadership than any elected or appointed official in our federal government today.

America has made the full circle in its history of electing Presidents. George Washington, our first President, made history by never telling a lie. Barak Obama, our current President, has made history by never telling the truth.

Load your guns Democrats and prove me wrong. C Brewer

LUCK, MAGIC OR LIES?

My friend Dr. Forrest shared this tidbit of interest on the “Believe or Not” performance of our federal government. He referred the following facts to a gentleman he knows who has a PHD in statistics and he said the process looks right to him “providing each act is an independent event”.  

The odds of winning the Florida lottery are 1 in 22,957,480.

The odds of winning the Powerball is 1 in 175,223,510.

The odds of winning Mega Millions is 1 in 258,890,850.

The odds of a disk drive failing in any given month are roughly one in 36. The odds of two different drives failing in the same month are roughly one in 36 squared, or 1 in about 1,300. The odds of three drives failing in the same month is 36 cubed or 1 in 46,656.

The odds of seven different drives failing in the same month (like what happened at the IRS when they received a letter asking about emails targeting conservative and pro-Israeli groups) is 37 to the 7th power = 1 in 78,664,164,096. That my friend is over 78 Billion. In other words, the odds are greater that you will win the Florida Lottery 342 times than having those seven IRS hard drives crashing in the same month.

How on earth could this happen at the IRS?  Dumb luck, just magically with no human intervention or another pack of lies we see consistently from our government?

Even Harry Reid, Queen Nancy Pelosi and our Liar in Chief, Emperor Obama, could not outdo this miracle.
