Declaration of War

Contraception, equal pay, stay at home moms…each instance is purely the democrats attempt at regaining/retaining the vote of women.

Contraception has been covered in the Sandra Fluke scenario, so I won’t hash out the details, other than it was trying to make it look like NO republican men wanted women taking any form of birth control.  No, it was all about convincing women we hate them, and about who should or shouldn’t have to pay for extra curricular, personal physical activities.

Attack stay at home moms.  Brilliant, attack the group of people who are the most keenly aware of how much it costs to raise a family, and the hard work that goes into that task.  I’m a dad with two kids, I work full-time in the evenings, and let me tell you just having two kids running around for half the day is a serious workout.  I can’t imagine Ann Romney and five boys.  Liberals simply hate the idea that a woman would voluntarily stay home with kids and not pursue a workplace career…unless you are Sarah Palin and then they hate you because you were a vice presidential candidate who wouldn’t be at home.

Equal pay taken care of in the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.  I work for a company that employs over 1,000 people, and every hourly employee starts at the same pay, and EARNS incremental increases based on the time they have been employed with the company and their job performance.  All pay raises on my shift of 80 to 120 people are put in for by their immediate supervisor, it then goes across my desk, and finally the desk of the vice president of distribution.  Oh, have I mentioned the raises are figured out by computer programming based on the supervisor entries.  If I had the hankering to adjust down ANY employees pay increase, I am required in writing to justify the decrease to the vice president.  I work for a mid-sized company in the midwest and we have a rather detailed system for reviews and pay increases.  Sure there are exceptions to everything, but there is no doubt in my mind that most companies are diligent in the pay process.

So, in summary us conservative/republican men just hate women so much we have to have a war against them.  This notion is completely insane.  I for one love women, probably too much for my own good sometimes.  If anything you would think some men would be giving better raises to women simply because of beauty, and maybe a smile shot in their direction.  Nope, it’s all about shoring up the female vote in November.  If the liberals can convince women us conservatives are out to run/ruin/destroy every aspect of their lives, the democrats will get their vote in November.

It is an absolute mystery to me how highly intelligent people, or marginally intelligent people for that matter, fall for these sort of amateurish pranks. War against women, what a joke.

Just Drug Them *Updated **Updated Again***Updated Yet Again

***The newest one is mothers being exposed to “particulate air pollution”. I’m not saying autism doesn’t exist, but I’m telling you they are throwing around diagnosis on kids like they are throwing PTSD at every person who served in a time of war (drone pilots with it, yeah right). They are trying to make stuff up. If it can’t be diagnosed with physical testing, as in urine, blood, cells, etc…then they are diagnosing it in the form of a shrink, and that sure isn’t science, it’s witchcraft.

**I just read now they are saying environmental pollution is linked to autism. Sounds like an attempt by the environmentalist whackos to play on heart strings in order to push their agenda. What I really think…they are making this up as they go…including the autism stats.

*I just read there is a new study that may link obesity during pregnancy to autism. At what point will people with nothing else to do, stop digging in their asses for non-existent BS.

You hear that word thrown around a lot, yet very little is actually known about the source of the disease. I remember Michael Savage took a beating because he was talking about it and he commented “drop the act”, as if it weren’t a real disease, but an actual act. Here are some basic stats tossed around.

In the world, 1-2 kids out of 1,000 have autism. In the U.S. it is 11.3 per 1,000. I find it amazing how the most politically and financially successful country in the world has the highest rates. Then again, maybe we are headed torwards a world like the movie “Idiocracy”.

It increased dramatically in the 1980’s…beofore massive cell phone use

In the last five years there has been a 79% increase…can’t be from vaccinations, I was getting them in the 60’s and 70’s.

They say genetics and environment can be contributors. Well the recent explosion can’t be too genetic because there wasn’t that much of it back when current parents were born. The environment is not specified, is it weather, TV consumption, being poor? What?

There is a higher rate of Autism than, get this, AIDS, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, and downs syndrome…COMBINED!

Most recently I heard that there is a potential tie to kids with older parents (dad). The kids with the older parents are more likely to get it. I don’t know how this matches up with the 79% increase in the past five years, are there suddenly people in their 40’s cranking out kids?

Here is the best part though. 1 in 88 kids get it. 1 in 252 girls get it…and 1 in 54 boys get it. So how does it work out that something they are not even sure of how it is passed along, contracted, developed, is so much more prevalent in boys? I think it is this, which plays into Michael Savage somewhat, it is way over diagnosed and in a lot of cases they do need to drop the act. Maybe some better parenting would help. I mean seriously, when I was a kid boys ran around playing tag, racing bikes, climbing trees and pulling girls pigtails. What were girls doing at the same time, playing house and huddling together on the playground and hanging together…staying away from us rambunctious boys.

I think part of what drives these stats of so many boys getting it is this, by and large, boys grow up and run business, we are the predominate participants in politics…and we start and fight wars! All of these things are looked upon with disdain by the liberal crowd (who dominate the media and education)…who seem to hate business, hate the boys club, and hate war (so do I, but if it comes to war, you better be ready for it).

So, if this huge amount of boys develop autism, we can dope the boy out of the boy, in turn the boy doesn’t developed the normal way a boy does, and in turn not the way a man does. It’s funny, we have the same disproportionate rates in boys with ADD and ADHD, a couple more reasons to drug boys out of their youth and beyond.

I’m not saying autism doesn’t exist, but it surely has to be over diagnosed. It is also a convenient way to take bad parenting off your shoulders.

I’ll Take 1%

I’ll preface this as normal, I’m not a big Mitt Romney fan, he is a standard Northeast Republican, a liberal streak runs through him.  Yet again I’ll say this also, if he is the nominee, I’ll support him…bumper sticker, yard sign, etc.  Every year we hear that “this is the most important election ever”, well in this case that is true.  I’ll take a Northeast republican over the dictator wanna be, communist at heart currently putting his feet on the Oval Office desk.

Everyone seems to want to dog Romney out for being rich, for being out of touch because his wife has a couple of Cadillacs (woo hoo, my dad has a Lincoln), and a new mansion in California that has an elevator for his cars.  SO WHAT!   I watched Meet the Press this morning and they actually had a video montage of Romney’s “gaffes” about his money.  Glenn Beck has been so in the tank for Santorum, that even he and his guys were making fun of Romney for his wealth and how he couldn’t relate to normal people.  SO WHAT!  Presidents of all stripes have money, Obama has a 1.4 million dollar house in Chicago…yeah it’s a big city, but 1.4 million is a lot no matter where you are.  The other factor is you have to earn enough money to be able to pay for the darn thing.

All people are doing by ragging on Romney is playing directly into the hands of the type of Occupy Wall Street crowd, who slam the “1%ers”, and are doing their damnedest to draw a dividing line amongst the population, hence class warfare.  I’ll gladly take a guy who is unapologetically rich and wants others to be able to have the same opportunity, over a communist who wants to take as much money from those who earn it, and GIVE it to those who don’t.

Another thing, people talk about having a president they “feel like they could drink a beer with”, no thanks.  I can drink beers with my buddy downstairs.  I also don’t want a president who is some smooth talking guy who can sound good to everyone, tell great jokes…no I want a president who is smarter and more of a bore than me, who is, for a change, all business.

Anyway, our current White House occupier goes on more vacations, spends Christmases in Hawaii, and plays golf at the rate of a rich guy.  Why the heck aren’t people calling attention to that kind of stuff every day.

Yeah, I’ll take Mitt Romney any day over the dictator wanna be, communist at heart who we are currently unfortunate enough to have to call president.

A Novelty

I’m all for personal freedom, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else or putting someone else in danger.

If you want to not wear a seatbelt, so what, you shouldn’t have to wear one. If you want to ride your motorcycle without a helmet, don’t wear one. You may cause other people to worry a little about you, but if something should happen to you in either case, you won’t be physically be hurting anyone but yourself.

It is pure and simple, both of those laws were created to save insurance companies potentially big payouts. The legislatures did not come up with them because they are concerned with your well being. If the legislatures actually care about your well being, they would loosen the grip of regulations over your personal decisions. However those personal decisions can’t put other people in physical jeopardy.

Now having said that, I saw one of the most idiotic examples of a persons decision putting someone else in danger. I saw a guy at a gas station filling up his motorcycle, and he was wearing a “novelty” or “outlaw” helmet. They are nice, light weight and comfortable. However, if you are in a wreck and smash your head on the pavement, they will only keep your brains from spilling onto the road. Chances of surviving the head wound will be far slimmer. Fine and dandy, that should be his choice. Here is the kicker, his passenger was about 8 years old, barely able to reach the foot pegs…and he was also wearing a “novelty” helmet.

To reiterate, if he wants to go without a helmet, should be his choice. But this man was needlessly and stupidly putting a child in very obvious danger…the rider had to have been very aware of this, and did not seem to care.

I can say one thing…this guy should be charged with child endangerment.

Sgt. I Should Have Gotten Out

This is a topic that is being tossed all over the internet and then some.  I’ve waited a little while to see what information would come in before I made any comments.  Well, even at this point there will probably be several changes to the story, but I can’t resist any longer.

Some back story about Sgt. Robert Bales so far.  He was an investment guy who’s business went south, which according to reports is when he joined the Army.   In 2002 he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend.  A few years back he was charged with hit and run, but charges were dropped.  Supposedly he was a model soldier who joined because he was inspired by events of 9/11.  This seems to go against reports that he joined after a business went bad.  Oh, he also has a string of commendations for good conduct.  Good conduct is a laughable fact,  because all you have to do is not get caught for your misdeeds and you get the medal…I know this for fact.

So, it seems like the story/excuse for him going “insane” was financial troubles and bushes with the law.  Well join the club Sgt. Bales, a lot of people have financial problems and brushes with the law, yet don’t find it in them to massacre 16 people.

My guess is this.  He was a pissy whiner at heart and couldn’t or wouldn’t muster up the guts to deal with his problems.  He was pissed because he was on his fourth deployment to a war zone, and had recently had a fellow soldier wounded right in front of him.  Then pile on the Koran burning incident and the resulting murders of six U.S. soldiers in retaliation.  So, Sgt Bales was tossing a couple back and decided he was going to get a little payback, no matter who it was, just happens that civilians make easier targets.

Now the last I remember the military is all volunteer, re-enlistment is not mandatory.  If he hated the repeated assignments to combat zones, I have this to say…he could have simply let his enlistment expire and returned to civilian life.  Presto, no more combat.

But maybe there was something more sinister at work, maybe he went on a killing spree with the cold and calculated attitude that such an act would help hasten our departure from the country.

Well, no matter how it is spun by lawyers, shrinks, military brass, old classmates,  politicians, the simple fact is this, he is a mass murderer.  If he is found guilty,  he should end up on a gurney with needles in his arms or an electric chair.

I have noticed one very odd thing.  When a handful of Korans were burned, Afghanistan went nuts, riots, destruction and murder were rampant.  Yet when 16 civilians, mostly women and children, were murdered…not one riot or any out of control chaos has been mentioned.  Let’s you know what is really important in Afghanistan.  It also lets you know what wasn’t important to Sgt. Bales, his wife and kids.

What a Fluke

I’m not going to make this a long article, but a short to the point one. Sandra Fluke is a hack, who it turns out is 30 and it seems specifically went to Georgetown Law School to challenge their policy. Oh, and she was president of a pro-abortion group, the Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

1. None of this is about women’s health, it’s a power play by the government, and about people wanting free stuff from the taxpayer. In this case one of the many forms of contraception available at many locations, such as city/county clinics, and planned parenthood (should be called “how do I get out of being a parent”).

2. What was Sandra’s Starbucks and cosmopolitan (drink, not magazine) bill? Cut back and pay for your own stuff.

3. Funny how the government is going to give all women free (taxpayer-funded) contraception. So, I guess men should soon start receiving free (taxpayer-funded) condoms from any store they chose to get them from…not a chance.

4. This whole thing is about getting single, and/or unthinking women to keep voting Democrat.

Rush Limbaugh was basically correct. Maybe she isn’t a slut, but she sure wants everyone else to pay for her protection during her sexual escapades while attending a $63,000 a year law school. Here is a novel idea, budget your money. If you still can’t afford it after you budget…keep your pants on or purchase an item from your local “novelty shop”.

Not Irreversible

The NY Giants finished the regular season 9 and 7…that is a 56% winning ratio, yet they went on to win the Super Bowl.  A mediocre team was able to pull out the big win out of a ho-hum regular season.

Now to the election in November.  Obama has had a miserable presidency, twice the increase in debt in half of the time that Bush had.  Obamacare that most people don’t like.  Injecting himself into small situations to try to make himself look good.  And the other day he tried to liken himself to Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.  These are just the tip of the iceberg.

The Republicans seem to have put up a bunch of candidates of which it seems, the public aren’t really fans of.  I have spent a lot of time beating up BO for his sorry run as president, which is deserved, but November will be the test on who I beat up on in the future.

I blame the fact we have BO on the media for a complete lack of vetting, that the public didn’t really know what they were getting, and they didn’t.  But the next election I might have to change my mind.  This country is so high on spending, a lot of which goes into the pockets of people who don’t pay federal income taxes.  Subsidies for business that would tank without the help of federal (taxpayer) dollars, such as ethanol and solar (Solyndra).  The list goes on and on.

Next election though, if BO wins the White House again, I will turn my anger to the public.  People in this country have become so used to sucking on the government boob, that it seems like they will elect anyone who continues feeding them.  If BO is reelected that will mean one thing, that the population at large is refusing to give up the boob, even if it means the system will fall apart, as it has in Greece, and how it is going in Italy and Spain.  A lot of people can’t think beyond the day in front of them, and most of the same people don’t pay any attention to society or politics until campaign time.  At that point all they hear are endless talking points, and are clueless to what is actually going on.

Now if a Republican wins, that will send me a message that the population as a whole doesn’t like the path the country is on, and they want to make an effort at fixing it.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not in the tank for all Republicans, Congress under GW were a bunch of drunken spenders, and GW never vetoed anything.  But I would like to think the light speed BO is spending money has really brought the fiscal problems to the front.

Though I am not a real fan of any of the Republican candidates, I will vote for the nominee, if for anything, as a vote against BO.  I just hope the rest of the voters who aren’t fans of the nominees will do the same.  I truly believe if BO gets another four years the country may well be on an irreversible course.

A long story shorter, don’t let BO become the NY Giants (though the Giants had a better record).

Burn Baby, Burn

So, I’ve come to this conclusion.  Let’s get out of the Middle East permanently, and let them kill each other at will, with no U.S. interference.

The most recent mayhem in Afghanistan, which has now spread to Pakistan, over the destruction of Korans by our military, is completely out of hand.  These idiots will kill and maim anyone who doesn’t believe what they believe.  They will kill Christians and burn their churches to the ground simply because they are Christian…not  Muslim.  They repeatedly attack Jews in Israel, because they aren’t Muslim.  Our military has burned our own bibles entering Afghanistan because the Muslims were concerned we were going to try to proselytize to them.  Yet when we destroy (burned) a handful of Korans because bad guys in lock up were writing messages to each other in them, the Islamic world goes crazy and starts killing because they are offended.  Seems familiar to the insanity they showed after a cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb for turban.

We have been in Afghanistan for over 10 years, shedding the blood of our troops, spending billions of dollars to get rid of bad guys.  What are the thanks?  Four of our guys get thanked by being murdered by Afghan troops because they are mad about the Koran destruction.  What else happens?  Our president and his minions are out there apologizing left and right, thinking that will help calm people down…it hasn’t, not in the slightest.  What else happens?  The Afghanistan president, Hamid Karzai, says there should be public trials of the troops who did the burning, oh, and the chief UN representative says they should be punished.  What hasn’t happened?  I haven’t heard one word expressing any type of apology for the murder of our guys…no, the book is more important.

Let’s see.  We had our embassy overrun and hostages taken by Iran.  Libyans bombed airlines.  We had peace keepers who were blown up in Lebanon.  We’ve had two wars with Iraq.  We are in the longest conflict in our nations history in Afghanistan.  We’ve had ships blown up in ports.  More embassies blown up in Africa.  We had Somalia.  The list goes on and on.  They keep doing bad things to us, yet we keep trying to be nice guys by helping get rid of their bad guys and sending them financial help.  To what?  Lost American blood, that’s it.  They have always hated us, and they will always hate us…we aren’t Muslim, and that’s all the reason they need.

Yeah, over 10 years in and this is what we get.  It’s time to pull ALL of our guys out of there.  Let’s help Israel, they have been screwed over and blamed for everything since they have been around.  After all, our country was founded on Judeo/Christian values.  The bible still has the old testament, which is the Jewish bible.  So yeah, let’s keep the faith with them.

For the rest.  Screw them all.  Let them kill and maim each other to their heart’s delight. But at the same time, we tell them if something bad comes our way, via you…we will come back and turn your country into a sheet of glass.

Nice Try

So, Mitt Romney is the lead guy right now, lucky us.

Four years ago Mitt lost in the primaries to John McCain, who in turn was trounced by BO. Not only did McCain get trounced, but it was by a guy with zero history, well, a history that wasn’t reported on.

So, four years later Romney is still trying to convince people how conservative he is. Wouldn’t one think that after four years that stage would be long over?

Now, I’m not a huge fan of the others either. Looking at the Republican field makes me wonder “is the best we can do?”

I’ll say this out front, I’ll vote for the nominee, though maybe holding my nose the whole time.

It’s simple, if BO gets reelected after his disastrous, dictator light, presidency, the country will get exactly what it deserves…closer to looking like Greece.

No Pain, No Gain

OK, I’m not an economist, but I am a thinker. This ridiculous debt “super committee” can’t seem to get out of their own way. Both sides blocking each other, appears no one really wants a deal. So, now we have a “super committee”, which has done one thing so far…taken the best and brightest (insert gagging sounds) from a useless congress and made a super useless committee.

They continue to look at cutting this and cutting that, no one wants their pet projects or favorite programs cut. If they can’t decide on anything they should do this…cut EVERYTHING by 10%. 10% could be cut easily, the wasted spending and unnecessary procurement of our dollars is rampant. Here is a good example, the city of Columbia, MO has received well over 20 million dollars of federal funding to promote “non motorized” transportation…in other words, feet and bicycles. Talk about stupid.

And they keep talking about needing “increased revenue”, well that could come in the form of getting rid of some deductions. How about this, for one tax year NO ONE gets to write off anything, no work clothes, no mortgage, no kids, no charitable contributions (I don’t get this, are you donating for the cause or for the write-off)…nothing.

Along with a permanent 10% across the board cut by the federal government (states without a balanced budget in their constitutions should follow suit), and a one year moratorium on write-offs, would go a long way. I don’t have any figures on how much money would flow back into Washington, but it would be a lot, and every penny of it would have to go to paying down the debt.

The only way we are going to get out of this mess is for EVERYONE to feel some pain. Not some “super committee” picking and choosing who will feel that pain…based on their personal preferences.

Oh, and I forgot one major item. If congress and their drunken spending is how we got into this mess, and they routinely hav a 9% approval rating, then why the hell do we continue to re-elect the same inept knuckleheads every two and six years? Fire every stinking incumbent next November…which leads to another topic.
