The little red wagon by the Bear

tLittle red wagon

When I was a very young boy, I got a little Red Wagon (PF Flyer) for a birthday present and each day I would go around the neighborhood after school and collect empty glass pop bottles.

Sidenote: For your young-ins out there, Coke and Pepsi soft drinks came in glass bottles at that time and they where recycled to be used again.

As I went around the neighborhood, nice people would give me their empty bottle and I would fill the little red wagon with as many as I could get and redeem that at the local grocery store for 2 cents each where they eventually ended up at the recycling plant. On some of very best days I could pocket about 50 cents. This was my first experience in a free market economy and I was like the local mail man… neither rain or snow or sleet would stop me.

After a lot of wear and tear, the rear axil broke and the rear wheels fell off. So as hard as my father I tried we just couldn’t get the wheels to work any more, so reality set in with tears in my eyes I realized you can’t fix some things that are broken.

And I think it fair to say that Washington D.C. aka (District of Corruption is broken).I believe there are some good people in Congress, but not enough to make a difference, that understand we need major reform before this country turns into another Socialist welfare state like the European model that has failed everywhere it has been tried.

The two party system of government has handcuffed our government in making any the reforms that our necessary and there are days when you can’t tell the difference between an (R) and a (D) because they both like the status quo.

The game that both sides of the aisle are playing today and if you vote for me I will give you “free this and free that”… 2 years of free College education, free healthcare via Medicaid, what could be better? all the food stamps you need, so why work? And we are back to this again, need a house to live in, see Uncle Sam who is writing 100% mortgages again. This time when ‘housing bubble’ burst, it will start the doomsday clock on its final count down.

So where are we going to get all the money to pay all of this, we just get more paper and ink and print more dollars in the basement of the Federal Reserve.

The wheels have come off the government wagon and its broken to the point where it can’t be fixed. We have more corruption than any of have seen in our lifetime and as Aesop long ago said …”We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.”

What we need is new blood, new faces and new ideas and you are not going to get that from the Washington establishment.

Or as Einstein said… “The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”

You can't fix stupid

The Origin of Man by the Bear

I mainly cover politics on this website because I am concerned about the direction of this country is taking. Those concerns are for my children and your children and every child in this country, because they are inheriting an insurmountable amount of debt and we are subjecting them to a life of property in the future.

I thought I would write about a different subject today because even a political junkie like me needs a day off from writing about the misdeeds in that swamp hole along side of the Potomac River.

The subject of paleontology (the evolution of man) has been an interest of mine for a long time and how it interacts with the known Christian Bible and science. I read several different estimates as to how old the Bible is, anywhere between 4000 to 6000 years since the Creation in the garden of Eden. (Adam and Eve)

The most logical answer seems to be 6,000 years and that answer is derived from population growth called the “rule of seventy”; which takes into account death rates, diseases, infanticide and geronticide and when all the factors are weighed in you get 6 billion people on Earth which comes very close to 6000 years needed to get to the present population.

So how old is the Earth? the 6,000 years is a drop in the bucket of time. Through carbon testing in layers of rock, most Sciencist agree the the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and by testing moon rocks and meteorites this confirms the 4.5 billion years as to the age of the Earth.

So did Homo Sapiens (US) evolve from some-Ape like creature? So what is the difference between an Ape-like creature and a man? The defining moment is when man learned to walk on two feet and it allowed him to use his hands for gathering.

Origin of man

The evolutionary website Handprint gives excellent descriptions of the contenders in the alleged ape-to-human transition:

• Australopithecus
• Homo habilis
• Homo rudolfensis
• Homo ergaster
• Homo erectus
• Homo heidelbergensis
• Homo neanderthalensis
(Homo is Latin for humans)

Which for decades was the accepted theory of the Origin of man. The answer is NONE! From the thousand of fossils discovered there is no direct link to Homo Sapiens from the above.

The Dinosaurs Age
They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years. At that time there where no Homo’s that interacted with Dino’s; it a guess but it is believed that humans first appeared on Earth 2.8 million years ago. Homo Sapiens first appeared on Earth 200,000 years ago.

Did Homo Sapiens interbred with Neanderthals? The answer to that is very likely, since we see evidence of that every weekend in Football games.

The common theory accepted today is Homo Sapiens are a subspecies that evolved from mutations in their DNA. But as we look around today there are sure enough humanoids that act like monkeys.

So how does the Origin on Man interact with the Bible? It is difficult to try to tie the two events together. In one area we are dealing with billion and millions of years before the Creation.

Perhaps we take the words in the Creation too literally… “When Genesis says on the first day and we immediately think of a 24 hour period. It’s possible that the first day was an extended period of time.

When Genesis says Adam lived to the age of 180, it really doesn’t seem likely and it must mean something else.

When you parse the words in Genesis there are many passage that could mean something else.
It all comes down to a matter of faith and that is for each of us to determine in our own way.

I hope you enjoyed my little diversion into the unknown, and on the 14th day of Creation, God created politicians and if we are lucky they will turn into a pillar of salt.

Odds and Ends by the Bear

Government Math/ Obamacare: The government claims that there are 7 million people who have signed up for Obamacare insurance and they further claims that by the cutoff date for signing up in mid Feb., they will have 10 million people signed up.

Now think about this, the government has spent over one trillion dollars putting Obamacare in place.

(One Trillion) $1,000,000,000,000 divided by 10,000,000 people = $1,000,000 (million)each for every person signed up.

So we have taken the finest health system in the world and disrupted the lives of 300 million American People and what did the government accomplish? Other than pissing away a trillion dollars…NOTHING!

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) The final numbers for 2014 have not been released yet but the GDP will be in the range of $18 trillion dollars for the year.
The economy has been growing at a average of 2%+ during Obama’s six years in office, so when he talks about a big recovery is under way, he must be talking about China because their GDP surpasses the USA which is now the second largest economy to China which is number one.

Now compare Obama’s 2% growth with the Ronald Reagan years in office where the country saw 5%, 6% and 7% growth after the Jimmy Carter’s recession and things are not all sunshine and peaches as BHO portrays.

Growth is our only salvation to solve our debt problem and 2% is not going to do it.

Kicking Michael Moore’s ass

There is something about the left in this country that causes them to see “red” when they see someone in the military has become a hero to the country.

This past week Michael Moore tweeted …”My uncle was killed by sniper in WW2,” We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.”

Right now the country could use an American hero to look up to because you will not find any in Washington D.C. at this time.

Dean Cain, a good friend of Chris Kyle (Sniper #1) was enraged by Moore’s tweet and threatened to “Kick Michael Moore’s ass.” I’m sure that there are many red blooded Americans who would like to kick that oversized blimp in the ass… The line forms right behind me.

Medal of Honor recipient takes on Michael Moore

Update: And then there is this: former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, along with Dakota Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient, held up the sign pictured below, complete with crosshairs drawn into the “O’s” in Moore’s name, at the 2015 Shot Show convention being held this week in Las Vegas. The sign was a response to a tweet Moore sent earlier this week.

Sarah Plain F.U.

SideBear: OK, guys, move over Sarah deserves to be in the front of the line.

“Murphy’s Law” by Jim Murphy

Greetings once again from the West Texas Home For Jingoistic Xenophobic Homophobic Islamaphobic Right Wing Racial Profiling Extremists Anonymous. I suppose we better get a support group since all of the above names are what the Liberals/Progressives/Democrats/Socialists call us.


According to the world’s most articulate and intelligent human and his band of incompetent, lying followers, things just could not be better here on the home front. Other than our country being more racially and economic level divided to augment the absolute political ignorance of many Americans, I suppose one could stretch the truth and agree that things here are just as they should be.

And to tell you the truth, I would be in a complete state of shock if things were not just as they are, taking into consideration the incompetence and complete lack of honesty of the ENTIRE Obama Administration.

They have been telling us that our Southern Border is more secure than at any other time in the past. They have been telling us that the Affordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare) has worked even better than originally planned. They have told us that the so called “Middle Class” has increased. They have blamed every single negative economic problem on…. you guessed it….. George Bush.

They have released Muslim Terrorists from the facility at Guantanamo and told us that by sending them to Yemen, they would cease to be a problem to our country and all the while Yemen is a nest of Islamic Terrorists who have planned and carried out acts of terrorism throughout the globe.

They have emasculated our Military to the point of ineffectiveness.

They have created a whole segment of our American society who are stupid enough to still believe race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Eric Holder.

Then, last evening in his State of the Union Address, Barack Obama kept trying to tell us that our economy and jobs were at an all time high. One little item seems to have escaped his keen observation, however. And that would be the fact that under his inept administration, our National Debt is now over EIGHTEEN TRILLION, $18,000,000,000,000.00, DOLLARS.

Also in listening to the lies spouted off by the world’s most articulate and intelligent human, I seemed to have thought back and remembered much of his speech was a bunch of recycled crap… for those of you who voted for Nancy Pelosi and reside in the People’s Republic of San Francisco that means that he repeated damn near everything he spoke about. Basically, what I got out of his speech was that he was going to raise taxes AND VETO any legislation of which he did not approve especially any legislation that would chip away at his signature Executive Orders.

AH, but we were treated to a woman, who was obviously a plant, seated next to Michelle, who had allegedly written Obama praising his policies for she and her family being able to own a home and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Of course, they neglected to inform us that this woman is a former worker for the Democrat Party and according to one report I heard had done this kind of thing in the past.


At this point in the Obama regime, what has he or any of his followers done which would entice ANY OF US to believe ANY STATISTICAL INFORMATION regarding our economy or jobs or anything else, for that matter.


If you think that the Domestic Policies of this band of thieves is a mess, just take a look at the Obama Foreign Policies…. or rather a lack of same.

They have not only refused to address some really major problems with our State Department, but have lied and taken part in cover ups at a record pace. They have still not come up with a believable excuse for the MURDER of our Ambassador and American Security personnel in Benghazi. I know this is a couple of years old but the American people still have not been told the truth regarding these MUSLIM TERRORIST ATTACKS.

Then just within the past two weeks when MUSLIM TERRORISTS murdered the cartoonists of the French magazine along with some other innocent people at a local grocery store, the Obama Administration has still refused to place the blame where it belongs. Then Obama did not send a high ranking member of his Administration to the Solidarity Demonstration in Paris. NO, after the fact he sends Secretary of State, John Kerry over to hug the French President and what makes the United States look even weaker and less in touch, Kerry carries with him, singer James Taylor. Then to top it off, James Taylor sings the song “You’ve Got A Friend”, to top off this “Hug Fest”. All in all, our government looked really weak and really stupid. Also, while I think James Taylor has a good voice and plays the guitar really well, this exhibition of foolishness by our government should have been an embarrassment to the Obama Administration.

Had our idiot President asked me to go over with a singer to placate the French President, I would have had to substitute another performer for James Taylor. I would have chosen Jerry Jeff Walker, accompanied by Gary P. Nunn and the Lost Gonzo Band and would have had them perform the old Ray Wiley Hubbard classic: “UP AGAINST THE WALL REDNECK MOTHER”. But I guess that might be a good reason that I was not chosen ahead of John Kerry…… well that and the fact that I might not have been able to resist the temptation to tell the world’s most articulate and intelligent human to STICK IT WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE.

While we are on the subject of the Obama Foreign Policy, we have been told that Yemen is our staunch ally in the Middle East and that is one reason why damn near every single prisoner released by Obama from Guantanamo has been released to Yemen. Then just within the past 24 hours we learn that there is a rebellion in Yemen conducted by the Shiite Muslims. And it is also of interest that the Muslim Country with the largest population of Shiites is…. you guessed it …. IRAN. And of course the world’s most articulate and intelligent human is working on some type of nuclear agreement with Iran and I doubt seriously if we will come out well in that exchange. AND of course Obama has threatened to VETO any legislation which would impose sanctions on Iran as well as any legislation which would go against his Amnesty edict.

SO, I am predicting that we will not see any changes in our stature in the world for the next two years. Russia will continue to spit in our face; The Muslim Terrorists will continue to do as they damn well please; ISIS will continue to gain ground in Syria and Iraq if we continue our present weak responses.

OUR foreign policy is either exceptionally weak or non-existent and I strongly imagine a touch of both.

OK. Several years ago I wrote a disclaimer that said that I WAS NOT THE FATHER OF ANNA NICHOLE SMITH’S BABY.
Then later I wrote a disclaimer that I DID NOT WATCH THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS.
Then I had to assure everyone that I DID NOT WATCH THE ACADEMY AWARDS.

Here is what I did observe about the game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts:

New England was way more prepared for this AFC Championship than was Indianapolis.
Tom Brady was way more experienced in Championship Play than was Andrew Luck.
I don’t believe that the football, deflated or not, had any bearing on the rushing attack of the New England Patriots
I don’t believe that the football, deflated or not, had any bearing on the inability of the Colts to mount any type of offensive attack.

I know that the media doesn’t like Bill Belichick which is one of the main reasons that I DO LIKE HIM. He is not the all time winningest coach in post season play, eclipsing Dallas Cowboy Coach Tom Landry because of his likeability, but rather for being prepared and preparing his team for big games.

NOW, since I disavow any knowledge of the much ado about nothing deflated ball story, I feel like I must also tell the world that I had nothing to do with the complete meltdown of the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. The Packers had that baby won and did some really stupid stuff which allowed the Seattle Seahawks to come from behind and win the NFC Championship.

I am looking forward to the Super Bowl and I believe that the two best teams are in it.
Do y’all remember back in the 1970’s when the HIPPIES were running wild in America? Remember when all of the great unwashed generation ALL claimed to be NON-CONFORMIST? Yet when you really observed them closely you realized that all of the girls looked and dressed and talked with amazing similarity? Then you looked at the male of the species and found that they dressed, spoke, and looked even more similar? SO, tell me, what was so damned NON-CONFORMIST about those bozos?

NOW, we have the Americans and Europeans who are going to the Middle East and growing a beard and letting their hair grow long and attempting to act exactly like their Middle Eastern Muslim compadres. Seems like a giant step backward. Where are those 1970’s Hippies now, you ask? Most of them are in Washington, D.C.
God help us all if we sit back and let Karl Rove and the Beltway Republican Establishment choose our next presidential candidate.
Also, while I think John Boehner is a varmint, inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a Joint Session of Congress makes me appreciate him a bit more.





Obama: The Most Dangerous of Morons By William L. Gensert

There have been bad presidents — see Jimmy Carter. Yet has there ever been a president as staggeringly incompetent as Barack Obama? Really, can there be any other explanation for his performance as president than the man is, well…a moron?

Let’s face it, we all know them. They are the people who either started out with money, or have spent a lifetime failing up. Despite a distinct lack of accomplishment, personal or professionally, they believe they are the smartest person in every room. They cannot utter a sentence that does not include “I,” “me,” and “my,” and they never stop speaking. To quote Alice Roosevelt, they are “the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding and the baby at every christening.”

They seem to Forrest Gump their way through life, with one undeserved success after another.

Does this remind you of anyone?

Have you ever noticed how many of these “really smart” people there are in government? It’s a magnet for morons, and it seems every damn one of them is portrayed by the media as a genius in his own right. Yet, they never seem to be able to do anything but make things worse, and usually much worse.

These are America’s morons and Barry is their leader.

Obama has strange tastes. His favorite show is Homeland. He’s proud to tell people this, and don’t get me wrong, I like the show myself — as a work of fiction. Then again, I’m not the President of the United States of America. In that case, the bar should be set higher.
