The reason so many problems do not get solved in Washington is that solving those problems is not the No. 1 priority: Re-election is.” — Thomas Sowell (1930- ) Writer and economist
Greetings once again from the Still Happy Very Cold Jingoistic Firearms Owners Of West Texas.
First of all, I would like to wish the United States Marine Corps a Happy Birthday. As most of you already know, November 10, 1775 was the actual birthday of the United States Marines. I also hope that everyone stopped yesterday to remember that November 11th is Veteran’s Day and I hope that everyone did the same as me in remembering all of the Military Veterans from our past and present. I would like to include this quote:
“We Marines are truly blessed. We get to enjoy the sweet taste of freedom because we no its price.”.. Corporal John Chipura – USMC.
Corporal Chipura was a survivor of the October 23, 1983 terrorist bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut Lebanon. Chipura eventually became a police officer in New York City, and later a fireman for the NYFD. He wrote the above lines for the 225th Marine Corps Birthday in 2000. On September 11, 2001, John Chipura died in the service of his fellow Americans in Tower Two of the World Trade Center.
Like Bill O’Reilly always says (although he doesn’t mean it), “I am a simple man”. Well I am not going to try and convince you that I am simple, although my needs are fairly simple. But there are a few areas in which I would really appreciate a logical EXPLANATION about certain situations and actions.
#1 – Since this present administration tries to blame the very rich for ALL of our problems and particularly the problems of the very poor, PLEAS EXPLAIN to me how the Democrats/Progressives/Socialists were all solidly behind the Kennedys. I guess that they are trying to tell us that someone who is not a member of their particular political party just cannot be honest OR have perhaps earned by hard work and common sense EARNED their wealth. If you will take a look at the present Hollywood Actors/Actresses and perhaps many of our Professional Athletes who are definitely in the extreme wealthy category are for the biggest part…. Liberal/Progressive/Democrat/Socialist. Just look at how many of them host giant fund raisers at occasionally $30,000 per plate with the world’s most articulate and intelligent human in attendance. I guess that what they are trying to tell us is that it is perfectly acceptable to be a RICH DEMOCRAT, but definitely NOT to be a RICH REPUBLICAN.
#2 – How is it that President Barack Hussein Obama does everything within his purview to release MUSLIM TERRORISTS from Guantanamo BUT did not seem very concerned with an American Marine who was kept for almost 3/4 of a year behind bars in Mexico for failing to respond to a confusing road sign? You cannot make me believe that Obama could not have called the President of Mexico ( who is also a pure turd) and had Sgt. Tahmooressi released within 24 hours. If he could not have done that, then any cooperation between the United States Government and the corrupt Government of Mexico should have ceased. It is fairly obvious that either Barack Hussein Obama either is in agreement with the Muslim Terrorist groups OR he is afraid. In either case, he would NOT be representing our Nation as he should.
#3 – Please explain to me how outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder can make blanket statements about conducting an investigation into the City of Ferguson, Missouri relating to, according to Holder “Problems Which Needed To Be Fixed”, BUT would not elaborate on these alleged problems as his investigation was “ONGOING”. Then explain to me what gives Bill O’Reilly the knowledge of these alleged “Problems” which made him AGREE WITH ERIC HOLDER….. but only insofar as Ferguson, Missouri was concerned. Then Mr. O’Reilly made the blanket statement that the City of Ferguson could not handle the situation following the shooting of “The Gentle Giant”. When I looked up the population of Ferguson, Missouri, I found that their population is 21,000 people.
I just wonder if it ever dawned upon Mr. O’Reilly that a small city of 21,000 people probably does not have the resources to handle a major public demonstration of the magnitude of the one we saw in Ferguson. Of course they were privileged to have all kinds of out of state special interest groups as well as many locals. Then the Governor of the State of Missouri sent in his State Police and that Black Captain, I believe his name was Johnson, was immediately elevated to HERO status by the mainstream media AND FOX NEWS AS WELL. But what experience does Bill O’Reilly have that gives him rise to make blanket statements. It is my understanding that prior to being in the news broadcasting business, he was a school teacher.
#4 – To go back to last Tuesday when the Democrats/Socialists got their collective asses handed to them in the Mid-Term Elections, please EXPLAIN to me just HOW OBAMA FIGURES THAT THIS WAS NOT A RESOUNDING DEFEAT FOR HIS POLITICAL PARTY. How is it that with ALL of the Democrats/Progressives/Socialists and all of their hacks along with the mainstream media preaching this Non-Existent WAR ON WOMEN that many of the polls showed that the female vote was well over 50% in favor of the Republican Candidates.
#5 – Please EXPLAIN to me how voters in California can continue to keep people like Nancy Pelosi in office. Please EXPLAIN to me after the past two days of hearing the MIT Professor and one of the alleged ARCHITECTS of the Affordable Health Care Act, talk about how the Democrats/Progressives/Socialists LIED when crafting this Piece O’ Crap bill, how ANYONE with any common sense whatsoever support or vote for Democrat/Progressive/Socialist candidates in any election?
#5 – Finally, EXPLAIN, how can ANY Patriotic American support our continued membership and funding of the UNITED NATIONS when at every turn we see them and many of us supporting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Amnesty International against the Israelis and President Benjamin Netanyahu. I think I read somewhere that at one time Iran was in charge of this idiotic body at the United Nations. The UN is a joke and run by Varmints.

“Had the Democrats retained control of the Senate, President Obama could have spent his last two years in office loading the federal judiciary with judges who share his contempt for the Constitution of the United States.”… THOMAS SOWELL
“The big question is whether the other branches of government — Congress and the Supreme Court — can stop him from doing irreparable damage to America in his last two years. Seeing Obama as in incompetent and weak, lame duck president only makes that task harder.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“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

A couple of times this week I was able to watch “A Football Life”. It was the story of NFL Hall Of Famer and Heisman Trophy Winner Earl Campbell. I feel really fortunate to have been living in Texas and Eastern New Mexico when Earl Campbell was playing for The Texas Longhorns in college and The Houston Oilers in the NFL. Of course after Campbell retired from football he ended up being diagnosed with a hereditary spinal condition which had him in a wheel chair for a good while. They had interviews with Earl and his family and some of his previous coaches. I feel really fortunate to have been able to see all of the really great running backs in the NFL. And of course I had always ranked Jim Brown (Syracuse and Cleveland Browns) as the best all round running back EVER. But I can tell you that Earl Campbell is right up there with him. The program is on the NFL Channel and it is really sad to see an unbelievable athlete of Earl Campbell’s ability have to use a cane or a walker in order to walk. One of the really unusual things in this program was that Earl said that when he was in High School at John Tyler High in Tyler, Texas, he actually wanted to play strictly defense and he said that he wanted to be the next Dick Butkus. I would imagine that he could have also been an All American and All Pro in that position. Anyway, if you have the NFL Channel and get a chance to watch this program, do so. It is quite a story.
A couple of days back I turned on the television set and got in at the very beginning of the movie, IVANHOE. It is one of my all time favorite period movies and had a great cast. Then in one scene Elizabeth Taylor who was fairly young back in 1952 and I am not sure that I have EVER seen a woman as beautiful as Elizabeth Taylor was in that movie. The only other one whom I place at that same level was Hedy Lamarr in Samson and Delilah which was filmed in 1949. These butt sprung ultra skinny Hollywood broads of today shouldn’t be mentioned in the same sentence as these two BEAUTIES from the late 40’s and early 50’s
Well I guess I had better go now and do my part on the “War On Women” that Conservative Republicans are accused of. Also I once again would like to send my thanks to ALL of the men and women from ALL branches of the U.S. Military. I saw that in once program which was supposedly put on for the Veterans that featured on the program were EMINEM and “The Boss” BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. I am not quite sure of who Springsteen is the “Boss” of but it damn sure ain’t me. I think both of these idiots should be beaten to the ground. AND, to really make it great, they both sang some Anti-War Songs. The news report said that they were sponsored by STARBUCK’S…. which I think serves the lousiest overpriced coffee and I will make a concerted effort to NEVER enter one again.

SEE Y’ALL NEXT WEEK
How does a man get elected President after serving less than one full term as a U.S. Senator? Does being a community activist/antagonist qualify one for the highest office in the land? Were the Soviet defectors correct in that Obama is the manifestation of a multi-generational plot to bring America to her knees? It is easy to comprehend how and why Putin would want to destroy America. But is Obama is his accomplice in this mission which could imperil all of us?
Former FBI Weatherman Task Force supervisor, Max Noel, noted that the FBI utilized a CARL test when it conducted background checks on various suspects. The acronym CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty is used to assess candidates fitness to hold the highest office in the country. On each of these four points of power, Obama fails and fails miserably. Like many FBI law enforcement agents and officials, Noel was alarmed by the fact that someone like Barack Obama could capture the presidency. For some unexplained reason, Obama was never vetted before he became a candidate for the presidency by the FBI. This is an unacceptable result of our national security system and is wholly suggestive of internal plot to allow the installation of a blatantly communist advocate into the highest political position in America.
Soviet Defectors Warn of Deception and the Emergence of a Manchurian Candidate
Did you really think Alger Hiss would be the last communist traitor to serve in a high level US governmental position?
Through the testimony of high-ranking Soviet defectors, it can clearly be established that the Russians have been engaged in a multi-generational plot to destroy the United States from within and from without.
You know, it’s funny. The information showing what a train wreck ObamaCare already is – and will be to an even greater degree in 2015 – has been available for some time. CBS News could have written a story about it any time they wanted, like, say, before last week’s election. Yet for some reason, surely a mystery to all, they waited until all hope was lost for the Democrats to tell us that everyone’s favorite law is going to get even worse next year:
With the Affordable Care Act to start enrollment for its second year on Nov. 15, some unpleasant surprises may be in store for some.
That’s because a number of low-priced Obamacare plans will raise their rates in 2015, making those options less affordable. On top of that, penalties for failing to secure a health-insurance plan will rise steeply next year, which could take a big bite out of some families’ pocketbooks.
“The penalty is meant to incentivize people to get coverage,” said senior analyst Laura Adams of InsuranceQuotes.com. “This year, I think a lot of people are going to be in for a shock.”
In 2014, Obamacare’s first year, individuals are facing a penalty of $95 per person, or 1 percent of their income, depending on which is higher. If an American failed to get coverage this year, that penalty will be taken out of their tax refund in early 2015, Adams noted.
While that might be painful to some uninsured Americans who are counting on their tax refunds in early 2015, the penalty for going uninsured next year is even harsher. The financial penalty for skipping out on health coverage will more than triple to $325 per person in 2015, or 2 percent of income, depending on whichever is higher. Children will be fined at half the adult rate, or $162.50 for those under 18 years old.
Now let’s be honest. None of this is news. These schedules were set in place the day the law was passed. This can be characterized as just-in-case-you-hadn’t-heard type of news story. But it would have to be said that this information would have been very relevant to voters still making up their minds before going to the polls last week.
So do you think CBS sat on the information to try to protect the Democrats at the polls last week?
