“He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” — Thomas Paine (1737-1809) US Founding father, pamphleteer, author
Hello once again from the West Texas Headquarters Of Jingoistic Xenophobic Second Amendment Supporting Vast Right Wing Conspirators.
WHAT IS IT? OVERKILL/ABSURD:
I know that AARP is not very popular with lots of people including me. But in spite of what Glenn Beck says, our supplemental health insurance partially provided by my former employer is handled through United Health Insurance and AARP. So regardless of my personal feelings and Glenn Beck’s sage advice, I pretty well have no choice unless I want to pay an extra approximately $240 per month or unless Glenn Beck wants to pay for my supplemental coverage, I am stuck with AARP. And being an AARP member, we receive their monthly news publication. I do not necessarily read every single word in the publication but on occasion my wife will call something to my attention and I will read the article.
The most recent publication had a list of “Most Livable Cities”. AND, in the TOP TEN MOST LIVABLE CITIES THEY HAD….. now get ready for this…… WASHINGTON, D.C. and BALTIMORE, MD. Now, I have never personally been to Baltimore, MD. but from what I have seen the past few weeks about their city government, I might just have a slight issue with this half-ass run city being one of my top ten choices. AH, but AARP also listed our nation’s capital… WASHINGTON, D.C. as also being the number 9 most livable cities. I have been to Washington, D.C. and reached the opinion that the Smithsonian and the Monuments and Memorials should be salvaged but the remainder of the city should be vaporized by a Klingon Bird of Prey Battle Cruiser.
The rocket scientists at AARP also had San Francisco as the #1 most livable city. I have been to San Francisco and had rather be pecked to death by a duck than live there. The also had several cities in Minnesota and Massachusetts listed and I could not comment as I have never been to any of those places. But I did not see one single city in Texas or Florida or Arizona or New Mexico or Oklahoma on the lists of “Most Livable Cities”. SO I believe that I will classify this list as ABSURDITY OF BIBLICAL PROPORTION!
OK. With radical fools trying to kill Americans at every turn, it seems as if the Mainstream Media and most of the Television News Programs have decided that the Tom Brady suspension by the NFL Commissioner as being pretty high on the list of really important things happening around the globe. In case you have been living in a cave for the past 5 months, the NFL’s crack investigation finally came to an end regarding the deflated footballs allegedly used by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game between New England and Indianapolis. According to the NFL rule, there is a league minimum of 12.5 pounds per square inch of air to be in the game balls. Each team furnishes their own footballs used by their offense. Evidently one or more of the footballs used by the New England Patriots had less than the mandated 12.5 PSI inflation.
Perhaps at this point I might point out that New England beat Indianapolis like a “Tied Goat” and it is highly unlikely that the suspected deflated balls would have made any difference. If my memory serves me, I seem to remember that Tom Brady could have been throwing a lopsided cantaloupe that day and still won the game rather handily. BUT this offense could not go unnoticed by Commissioner Roger Goodell and of course since it was the New England Patriots who won the game, Goodell had swing into action and do something to look like he was earning his PLUS $40 MILLION per year salary.
Make no mistake about this. Neither the deflated ball nor Tom Brady were really the target of this whole load-o-crap investigation. The MEDIA absolutely hate Patriots Coach Bill Belichick and this is more about that than it is whether or not Quarterback Tom Brady was involved in the alleged deflation of the game balls.
BUT, after months of intensive investigation, the final report…. 243 pages of it… were turned in to Roger Goodell who immediately reached a conclusion that Tom Brady and the Patriots organization MUST BE PUNISHED to PRESERVE THE INTEGRITY OF THE LEAGUE. SO, here is the fair punishment handed down by this overpaid CEO:
TOM BRADY – Suspended four games in 2015 (Pittsburgh; Buffalo; Jacksonville; Dallas)
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Fined $1 MILLION DOLLARS; Forfeit 1st round draft pick in 2016; fourth round draft pick in 2017
PATRIOT STAFFERS: Locker room attendant and equipment assistant suspended indefinitely
According to several stories I have heard and read, the $1 Million fine was levied because the organization should have known about what was going on.
OH, did I forget to mention that according to the investigation that the results in the opinion of the investigator were that Quarterback Tom Brady …. now get ready:
“MORE THAN LIKELY KNEW ABOUT THE DEFLATION OF THE FOOTBALLS”.
More Than Likely? That doesn’t sound very positive results of this 243 page report. AND, if the New England Patriots Organization “Should have been aware” of what was going on…. then I submit that the NFL and the ever vigilant Roger Goodell should probably suspend the Officiating Crew in that game for at least four games. From what I see in an NFL game, normally ONE SINGLE OFFICIAL places the ball and marks it ready for play on EACH PLAY. SO, if this under-inflated ball was so noticeable, then why did this NFL Official notice it at some point during the game?
I don’t know whether Tom Brady knew ahead of time about the deflated footballs and if he did, it is not a pivotal moment in my life.
Trust me when I tell you that this is NOT about under-inflated balls nor Tom Brady nor the equipment people… it is about the SPORTS MEDIA not liking Head Coach Bill Belichick because he doesn’t kiss their backsides. THIS INVESTIGATION AND PUNISHMENT IS OVERKILL AND ABSURD.
Now keep your ears tuned and see if pretty soon we don’t hear that the federal government will get involved in some type of oversight of all professional sports. Don’t forget that Barack Hussein Obama and a number of Senators and Congressmen have already shown interest in federal monitoring of professional sports.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…..

I just wonder how Mr. Goodell would have fared back in the 1950s and 1960s when he would have had to deal with George Halas and a bunch of those old time owners and head coaches? In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I have NO USE WHATSOEVER for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
A week or so back I watched interviews with a couple of residents of that top ten LIVABLE CITIY, Baltimore, MD. They were both black females who lived in the area of the looting and arson and rioting. One of them said that they were going to HAVE TO CHANGE OUR “SYSTEMIC SYSTEM” before things could get better. The other one said that they were going to HAVE TO CHANGE THEIR “SYSTEMATIC SYSTEM” before the quality of life improved.
After listening to these two statements I came to the conclusion that these two heifers had heard the word SYSTEMIC and SYSTEMATIC somewhere and had absolutely no idea what either word meant and were just parroting someone else. I also decided that they both probably possessed the I.Q. of a slug. Let’s look at the word SYSTEM, which is the root word of both systemic and systematic.
SYSTEM – an orderly way of doing something
SYSTEMATIC – orderly
SYSTEMIC – affecting the body as a whole
SO, neither of their statements made any sense whatsoever. Sure makes you want to move to Baltimore, don’t it?
Also, I have read so damn many different reports about this “Operation Jade Helm 15″ that it is impossible for me to feel any way than it is “Much Ado About Nothing”.
I can certainly understand how many people DO NOT TRUST the federal government but stop and think for a moment. There are 7 states involved in the exercise:
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado;
HOSTILE STATES: Texas and Utah and a small section of Southern California.
UNCERTAIN LEANING HOSTILE: New Mexico
UNCERTAIN LEANING FRIENDLY: Arizona
PERMISSIVE: California, Nevada and Colorado
At this point I am not completely sure just what all of these exercises are meant to accomplish but I have heard that the private property owners, at least in our West Texas area where headquarters and troop concentrations will be stationed have all been contacted and none of these people seem to be, at least at this point, not very concerned.
Also, one might think that Texas and New Mexico and Arizona in particular might not be the best three states to try some foolish crap.
So, until I hear something a bit more concrete I am not going to drag out my riot gear.

SEE Y’ALL NEXT WEEK
Have you being feeling stressful lately, he is a video that will make you feel better, be sure to watch it to the end.
Now don’t you feel better?
Subject: Dear Abby,
My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning,
and, when I confront him, he denies everything. What’s worse,
everyone knows that he cheats on me. It is so humiliating.
Also, since he lost his job 14 years ago, he hasn’t even looked for a new
All he does all day is smoke cigars, cruise around and shoot the bull with his buddies, while I have to work to pay the bills. Since our daughter went away to college he doesn’t even pretend to like me, and even hints that I may be a lesbian.
What should I do?
Grow up and dump him. Good grief woman! You don’t need him anymore!
You’re running for President of the United States.
Act like it ….
Guess Obama didn’t take American history in school
There is no cure for stupid.
And he expects us to believe all the errors on his bogus birth certificate!
Dumb and Dumber
You may recall that a few weeks ago, President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, “much like this swap” he said convincingly.
CNN carried this quote, “This is what happens at the end of wars.”
President Barack Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. “That was true for George Washington…That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back…
And that’s the right thing to do.
That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over.
Then again, he was educated at an Ivy League school so you can’t expect too much.
What’s wrong with his statements?
Let’s keep it simple– EVERYTHING is wrong!
1. George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange.
2. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.
3. FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn’t do what this jerk says he did. You’ll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II. He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary.
4. None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our “57 States” president.
5. It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars.
What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless?
… or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb, lying rhetoric and behavior!
P.S. Obama mentioned while being interviewed on Super Bowl Sunday while in the Whitehouse kitchen, that George Washington drank beer in the White House when he was president .
George Washington never lived in the White House; it wasn’t built yet.
A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL. Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.. Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel… He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!
The poem at the end is excellent
545 vs. 300,000,000 People -By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President’s proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
