Do We Dare, NFL?

I'm saddened to see so many people giving into the hype of what a professional athelete does or does not do during our National Anthem.

First, it's a free country, do what you will.  I may not agree with what they are doing, but I am American enough to defend their right to do so.

Second, I care that there's mistreatment around our nation, but this isn't the 1800's anymore.  Remember seeing the photos from Texas after their hurricane?  THAT is a true representation of our nation.  How easy it is for the media and us to forget kindness because that doesn't get ratings.

Thirdly, don't call out for people to "delete" you as a friend on social media sites because you have a viewpoint different from theirs.  It's uncalled for, short sighted, and it only feeds into this feed of negativity that can stop IF we let those causing constant unrest not win this delicate battle  whenever there's a whisper of unrest.

Fourth, no one should really care what a professional athlete or actor or singer thinks of any given subject.  Their job is to take us away from reality for a period of time.  They're entertainers.  We gave them value because of a skill, and just because they have more air time then you doesn't mean their views hold more merit.  Learn on your own.  Your own studying on facts can move mountains, believe in yourself and what your mind can do.

Fifth, if the NFL chooses to allow this in their business, they will suffer, or not suffer the consequences of the American consumer.

After all of that, take away this; love your family deeply and treat others with respect never anticipating anything in return.

The Whipping Post

     "BREAKING NEWS" of the "Russian Investigation"  is exactly like the stereotypical younger sibling who constantly wants attention for nothing in particular.  In an investigation that feels like it has been underway for a century, we still have yet to have anything concrete linking the Russian government to "hacking" our 2017 Presidential election. In all honesty, if there was anything concrete then it would be leaked by now. Let's face that head on, there are no secrets in the Trump White House, and what we continue to have bombard us in our news feed is conjecture and hopeful wishes of Trump's demise.
     On the side of Trump supporters is the latest undercover video showing John Bonifield saying, whether in an edited context or not, that what CNN is doing with the Russian story is all about the "ratings".  It's not about bringing facts to the table, it's not about uncovering the truth, it's not about making our elections secure, it's about ratings that yield more revenue streaming into pockets of CNN.
     Argue with me if you want, but that's what politicians do as well.  Main stream media news outlets and politicians are not about truth, justice, nor American values, they're about money, power, and greed.  Money is the "truth" in politics and for those covering it.  Isn't it interesting why media outlets tend to prefer those of the Liberal or Democrat line of thought than a Conservative or Republican?  The answer will always circle back to money, greed, and ultimately power.
     The Russian story is nonsense.  The people reporting on it have no integrity. The desperation from the MSM and from anti-Trumpers on the Russian story reeks like old garbage.  As a nation and as a world, we have more actual news happening deserving of coverage, yet money remains king and what yields profit will gain the most attention.  The truth is sacrificed in the name of profit.

Republican No More!

     Are you like me and have had enough with politics as usual?  Has your level of disgust with career politicians and the Elite class in D.C. that the teacher from the Charlie Brown series makes more sense to you than when they open their mouths to speak? Then you are in good company.
     With the never-ending fiasco continuation of the failure that is Obamacare, and the continued funding of Planned Parenthood, Republicans are sacrificing their souls under the guise of non-partisan politics.  It would seem that ever since Bush left office Republicans have, either consciously or subconsciously, been paying penance for his actions by means of being in a constant state of bending over for the Democrats to do whatever they feel.  This has lead to the adequate label of RINO; Republican In Name Only, and by God in Heaven, there are way too many of them. The newest term of cuck-servative has sprung, and no matter what label you give these career, slick tongued Republican, they have GOT TO GO!  I am tired of being tired of their naivete, gullibility, and general dumb-assery.
     American needs are being overlooked and cast aside for a wide variety of reasons, mostly due to the shady back door deals that most of us will never know, and I have had enough of constant campaigning lip-service.  Americans should not suffer because of a slick tongued, spineless, brain-dead politician .  Which is why I am now associating myself with the Common Sense Party, and all are welcome to join!  There are, however, some ground rules and basic beliefs that all must accept to be a member.
     Those who join the Common Sense Party do so knowing that you, and only you, have complete control over your station in life.  The government is not your meal ticket to sitting on your rear-end and not exploring your God given talents and potential!  This party firmly believes that whatever choice you make in your life, you have to understand, and take on the full responsibility, that there are consequences for your actions.
     This is a party accepting of anyone from any walk of life, young or old, whatever religious beliefs you associate yourself with is fine too, the biggest thing though is that you can't be a jerk.  A member of the LGBT community?  You're welcome in the party!    In the spirit of transparency, there is a test for entry, which is a short basic American Civics test that you should have passed in Elementary school.  There ARE term limits, so leadership cannot hold lifetime appointed positions within the party.  The party's platform is firm, yet fair to all.
     Would you care to hear more?  Part two is coming with the Party's platform. Stay Tuned!

Ready, Aim, Syria!

  This is bad...this is bad, this is bad, this is BAD.  That was the mantra on repeat in my brain when the word of the airstrike in Syria was announced.   This has to be the beginning of WWIII, right?!  How could President Trump do something so overly risky?  An understandable thought, right?  This is scary stuff.  This is a monumental event that has just taken place for the world, not just President Trump's administration.  There are some serious repercussions to this event.... but let's think about this for a moment.  This might not be the worst thing to happen.
      Reports began in 2012, while President Obama was in office, indicating that the Assad regime was behind the murder of his own people.  Who can forget Obama's famous "Red Line"?  A warning to Assad after reports of the attacks went viral on the international stage... a line that Obama realistically had no intention of holding Assad's feet to the fire.   It was empty an empty threat by Obama, and Assad knew it.  Assad was given a golden ticket by Obama, Assad saw this, and the world knew it, but no one put up a fight.  This lead to the great refugee crisis we're witnessing now.   Syria is in shambles now because Assad and his regime knew they could get away with anything.  Enter Trump.
     Like many of us, President Trump does not want a war.  What we are seeing from Trump is a bold action to something that SHOULD have been taken care of years ago.  The target was Shayrat air base; to help stop future possibilities of a chemical weapons attack.  Russians were warned about the strike, even though they continue to turn their heads to the deplorable attack on innocent people.
     This strategic strike is a wake up call to the people across the world that America will not stand by while innocent people are murdered by their government.  Hopefully Americans, and others around the world, who have had their heads buried in the sand in regards to the atrocities committed by Assad will see that this was a vital steps to stabilize Syria.  Perhaps some see it as an "act of aggression", but what else would a mass murderer will understand if not strength?

International Women's Day Strike: A Tool for Lefitsts

Today was International Women’s Day, but instead of celebrating the achievements of women in America and around the world, many will use it to express themselves another way, participating in protest against the “injustices” that women face every day in the workplace, at home, and in society known as the “A Day Without a Woman” strike.
The marches, similar to the marches against President Trump on January 21st, will be made up of not only people protesting the rights denied to women, but also rights denied to the members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and immigrants, a direct retaliation to the executive order signed by President Trump a few weeks ago.
Although the march has a clear-cut mission, it lacks a strong base to the movement. Planned Parenthood, the top sponsor for the march, rigorously fights for women’s rights every day, but people who support this fail to realize that Planned Parenthood is also responsible for more than 300,000 abortions every year, according to Considering many of these unborn children were potentially female, fighting for women’s rights suddenly becomes problematic when it’s realized that the top sponsor denies a fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution: life.
Moreover, including members of groups that do not share that mission (groups fighting The Dakota Access Pipeline for example) clearly shows that the movement is not actually about women’s rights, but rather used as encouragement for other progressive agendas such as immigration and environmental policies. The Natural Resources Defense Council, the only platinum sponsor of the movement, just behind Planned Parenthood, is an organization aimed at fighting climate change, which has absolutely nothing to do with women’s rights.
Even the debated relevant topics being protested for by this movement are problematic. The common workplace discrimination arguments, brought up consistently by women’s rights organizations, too, lacks a strong base on multiple fronts.
On the equal pay front, which lacks decisive evidence in general, paying women the same as men disintegrates the meaning of capitalism, a system that once made this country arguably the strongest in the world. Paying the same wage to people occupying the same job throws a wrench in the wheel of competition, lowering the standards of an employer who might see something past the actual resume of a candidate. In addition, it creates a ceiling on bargaining power for positions, which might actually force employers to pay someone who is more equipped for the job less money, including women. While there is still no real evidence that supports the claim that women are paid less, the true meaning of the movement becomes shaky.
In defense of these ideologies, women are taking the day off from work, unpaid labor, and shopping. In circumstances where striking is not possible, they will wear red in solidarity.
Fighting for women’s rights once sent a powerful message to lawmakers and society, but that message has now become diluted as recent events have seen the cause embody a new meaning closely tied with leftist politics. It is no longer about the rights of women, but rather a vehicle to break down the current Trump administration, and force an equal, socialist-leaning agenda on society. Real women should not march, take the day off from work, or simply do (or not do) things to divide on this day, but rather celebrate the accomplishments that so many great women such as Sally Ride and Nellie Bly have made throughout history, aiming to further accomplish great things for the world.

Muslims in Uganda Rape Christian Women

On January 15, 2017, Muslims stormed a church in Uganda and raped and attacked members of the congregation. The assault was apparently a revenge attack against the pastor of the Katira church for allegedly converting Muslims to Christianity. According to a member of the congregation who escaped from the church, one of the attackers shouted, “Away with the pastor who is converting our Muslims to Christianity.” After the attack, members also found leaflets accusing the pastor of converting Muslims and threatening more attacks. Now, weeks after the attack, the church’s pastor is still missing, along with eight other Christians from his congregation who were kidnapped with him.

The mainstream media didn't cover this. Instead, the media is too busy telling the world how terrible Donald Trump is. Only a few weeks ago, we had a president who was weak and was a coward. But, since January 20, Donald Trump has been the president of the United States and now we know that Islamic terrorism has met its match. Under the Trump administration, the event that occurred in Uganda has little chance of happening in the United States.
