Hello once again from the West Texas Home For The Hopelessly Deplorable Xenophobic Right Wing Conspirators
Last week and the first few days of this week I listened to members of the so called Millennial Generation whine about practically everything that most of us have done all our lives…. like PAY BACK LOANS WE HAVE MADE. According to the members of this band of extremely selfish whiners, everything should be provided for them at not cost. I listened to one female of the species make a statement about not being a Hillary supporter BUT was going to vote for Hillary since she was closer to doing things the way Bernie Sanders had suggested than was “The Donald”.
I listened to several people who claimed to be proud members of the Millennials and they all sound exactly alike. The thought of who was going to pay for their education and upkeep while attending college had never even entered their minds. And just exactly what their contribution to our country is still a mystery to me and apparently a bit of a mystery to the Millennials as well.
When you watch and listen one of these critters interviewed on television or on the radio, you must have some serious doubts as to the direction our country and federal government is headed.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not for one moment suggesting that the Millennials are the group who have taken our country to the brink of destruction. Nope, I blame the people of my generation for sitting idly by while elected professional politicians have all but destroyed our Constitution. It was not the Millennials who elected LBJ and Jimmy Carter or even Bill Clinton. BUT they did have a huge hand in turning over the Presidency to perhaps the worst person to ever hold that office in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.
And. I can assure you all that not a single Millennial or far left wing loon will vote for anyone other than Hillary Clinton in November. It is readily apparent that the overwhelming choice of the Millennials for the Executive Branch has almost reached Marxist level.
It also seems as if the Millennials are buying into this idea of a Global – One World Government. At least until they realize that perhaps the One World -Global Government will not provide them with everything their little selfish hearts desire at no cost to them.
Please take a close look at this President’s appointed cabinet and department heads and tell me that you trust either Barack Hussein Obama or Hillary Clinton to appoint anyone other than a radical left wing judge to the Supreme Court.
And the appointment/appointments of Supreme Court Justices during the next 8 years will determine whether or not our Constitution is completely destroyed and the American People will be living under the rule of a despot.
This past week I have been noticing the commercials advertising the new programming for this Fall Television Season. And I have also been taking notice of product advertising for a good while. What do both have in common, you ask?
Easy answer………. DIVERSITY!
In most of the product advertising, there are members of practically every ethnic background shown in every commercial. Of course some of the children shown look to be bi-racial. And I have noticed that a white male NEVER seems to know how to solve his own problems. It takes either a male of another ethnic background OR a female of any race to teach the stupid Caucasian males how to solve even the simplest problems.
And in keeping with DIVERSITY in our every day television viewing, it seems as if the cast in each of the upcoming programs for the Fall Season have not only racial political correctness foremost in the creator’s minds but in a couple of the programs it seems as if the only Caucasian people in the plot have either insignificant positions or are always cast as the evil villain. Plus you have to have multiple confusion regarding gender and sexual preferences thrown in just to make sure that no one is offended.
Now before anyone goes ballistic over my previous observations, let me point out that back in the 1950s there was an old comedy television program called Amos ‘n Andy. For the biggest part the entire cast was comprised of black actors. The program was plenty funny and one of the main characters, George Kingfish Stevens was always up to some plot to thwart his mother-in-law or some of his runnin’ buddies but his conniving generally backfired on him and the good triumphed over the evil. AH, but then the NAACP and several other special interest groups began to complain and eventually succeeded in getting the networks to cancel the program. AND in so doing, put a whole bunch of black actors out of work. Another excellent job by the NAACP.
And before anyone suddenly comes up with the opinion that I do not like black people or members of other so called minority groups let me assure you that my dislikes for anyone who is black….. like for instance…. Barack Hussein Obama… has NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS RACE. IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HIS CHARACTER. AND, BECAUSE I DISLIKE HILLARY CLINTON AT THE SAME LEVEL AS I DO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HER GENDER.
I have nothing against DIVERSITY as long as it IS NOT FORCED UPON ME to accept it. When I get to looking back over my life I could name a couple of convicted felons who were either black or Hispanic whom I trusted ahead of a lot of the white people whom I knew.
My very first supervisor when I moved to New Mexico was a Hispanic (Mexican) Sergeant whom I try to visit every time I return to New Mexico. He was strict but I also saw him recommend a suspension without pay on a couple of occasions and give the suspended employee funds to keep his head above water and not penalize the family. He went to bat for me on several occasions and I have a great deal of respect and regard for this man. I have had my rear end covered by black former convicts who risked a bunch to see that I was not injured. I shall never forget those folks either.
But the point I am trying to make is that any situation that is forced upon us by some government regulation or by political correctness is unacceptable to me and probably is to most people.
From what I have been able to see, this FORCED DIVERSITY ACCEPTANCE is completely supported by the Millennials as well as all Liberals/Democrats/Socialists/Marxist politicians.
But as for me…. they can put it where the sun don’t shine.

“To me, Donald Trump represents multiple and potentially fatal risks. But Hillary Clinton is a certainty of disaster. Her vaunted experience is an experience of having repeatedly made decisions that turned out to be not merely wrong but catastrophic.”…………. THOMAS SOWELL
“President Obama and Secretary Clinton inherited an Iraq where terrorists had been soundly defeated, thanks to General David Petraeus’ surge campaign, which both had opposed when they were in the Senate. But the Obama administration turned victory into defeat by pulling American troops out of Iraq, against the advice of top military leaders, setting the stage for the emergence of ISIS and its triumphant barbarism that attracted adherents who began waging terrorist war inside Western nations, including the United States.”……………… THOMAS SOWELL
“I never did give anybody hell. I just told the truth and they thought it was hell.”…………. HARRY S. TRUMAN
“It is weakness rather than wickedness which renders men unfit to be trusted with unlimited power.”………….. JOHN ADAMS
“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”….. PATRICK HENRY

On Saturday, September 17, 2016, the people of San Angelo, Texas lost a really good man. His name was Richard James Burnett, but I along with many others knew him by “Dick” Burnett. I first met him at a retired police officer’s breakfast which takes place on the first Wednesday of each month. I guess I knew Dick for about 6 years. He was one of the nicest, kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Dick had been ill and experienced some major health problems over the past couple of years and at the time of his passing, he was 94 years old. I remember at one of the breakfasts celebrating Dick’s 90th birthday. I always admire his sense of humor and how sharp he was at age 90.
Dick’s wife had preceded him in death as did his brother and several sisters. Here is a man who served his country and his community all his life. He was a P-47 Thunderbolt Pilot in World War II and after his discharge graduated from Toledo University and went to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1947 and retired with 30 years of service in 1978. He then served two years as the Chief of Police in San Angelo, Texas and then was elected to the Texas House of Representatives where he served 4 terms before retiring in 1989.
In retirement, Dick continued to serve his community as President of Adult Daycare; The Community Justice Council; Crime Stoppers; Family Shelter; and the Retired Volunteer Program. He additionally served as the Director of the Tom Green County Tax Appraisal Boar and the Public Responsibility Committee.
Here was a man who spent his entire life serving his country and his community. And prior to the past couple of years, Dick had one of the sharpest minds I have ever seen in a man. I do know that our community and the world won’t be quite as interesting with Dick gone from our midst. I feel I have been honored to have known this good man.
Yesterday, a good friend gave me an article describing some letters sent back in 1868 from one of his ancestors to the ancestor’s wife. These letters were extremely interesting with the first one being written from Fort Concho (I what is now San Angelo, Texas) on June 20, 1868. He was driving a herd of cattle from Caldwell, Texas to El Paso, Texas to be sold. On this drive to El Paso, he lost 50 head of cattle and had the herd sold for $18 per head. HOWEVER, the buyer backed out and he decided to drive the herd to Tucson, Arizona to be sold. On that part of the drive he writes of losing 37 head of horses due to an Indian attack. On September 21, 1868 he again wrote his wife from Tucson where he was unable to sell the cattle and decided to drive them to Los Angeles, California which he did and sold the herd there for $17,000 in gold. He also wrote of small pox breaking out along the Pacific Coast. NOW, as if this were not enough, when he returned to Texas, in 1869 he drove another herd to Abilene, Kansas. The article went on to say that this man died while chasing a cow on his ranch and falling from his horse in 1923. The man was W.H. Posey.
Now just stop and look at a U.S. map and check the distance from Caldwell, Texas to Los Angeles, California. I have no idea how many cowboys it took to make that drive and can only imagine the hardships and the weather they had to endure in order to complete their task. Then I read about the whiners in the NFL and the whiners in our society today and feel as if they all need a swift kick in their asses. They have no idea what real hardship is. SO to the MILLENNIALS who seem to be in a perpetual whining victim mode…… ADIOS TO YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON!
OH! One last item. If you happen to be black, PLEASE DO NOT RUN THE RISK OF OFFENDING PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA BY NOT VOTING. I watched a clip where he said that he would consider it as a PERSONAL AFFRONT to his LEGACY if the black community does not turn out to vote. Well, we can’t have that, can we? And can someone please tell me at what point during your lifetime has the division of the American public along racial lines been worse than it is at the present time. Well let me suggest to President Obama that he take his legacy and stick it up his backside.
