It’s been a while.

First, I want to thank Almighty God for keeping us safe during our latest challenges. My wife was out with her friend last Saturday when she lost her balance and fell backwards, hitting her head, which required 9 staples to close the wound. Sunday as I was going to visit her an SUV cut into my lane., I swerved to avoid hitting it and in so doing I destroyed my car and another parked car. I got some bumps and bruises but I’ll be OK.

I took her home yesterday and got a call from our landlord. About a year ago our toilet overflowed and leaked through the ceiling in the downstairs apartment. The guy who had moved in down there is very unfriendly and complains about everything.He complained about still getting water seeping in,although we haven’t had a problem in over a year. He also griped about my wife running our washing machine at 2 in the morning. He’s on disability and doesn’t work. The landlord said if he complained again he would evict us after being faithful tenants for almost 11 years. Continue reading

Happy Trails

Since I was granted posting privileges back in February of 2011 I’ve done more than 2970 posts. It’s been a long and sometimes difficult road.Some of the very best friends I’ll never meet have been here from the beginning. CtH,Bluebird,Ting,and a few others have been together going way back to the Hillbuzz days of 2007-08. Not that we cared a lick about Mme. Pantsuit but it was one of the few places you could have a discussion with democrats without the dialogue descending into profanity in short order.
About 2009 FlMom, started a new blog that we migrated to. It was great for some time and had a lot of participation.Eventually she formed what we’ve come to know as the Garden.The discussions were spirited and a lot of people made themselves known. Eventually,people just drifted away,as is their wont.The stalwarts,what I refer to as the hardcore,have seen me through some extremely difficult times. Things would have been much more difficult without their support.
Owing to a nearly unbroken string of bad decisions in my life I’ll be forced to work until I die.At 68 years old I’m working overnights in a gas station to make ends meet.Not complaining,it’s the price I pay for being irresponsible for decades.Due to my severe sleep apnea, my days are spent working,sleeping and spending a few precious hours with my grandchildren. It’s all I have left.
I was truly blessed to have grown up in a time when dads worked(there were a LOT of dads back then),mom stayed home and took care of the kids and schools taught such now-archaic things as civics,history,mathematics and job skills. There was no day care for 15 year old students who were already mothers. You had to actually read books,use a library and use a pencil and paper to show your work.Electronic devices and Google didn’t exist.All the kids you started school with graduated together.
The teachers union,in league with the democrat machine has reduced what was once education to socialist indoctrination where individual achievement is discouraged and everybody gets a medal.This makes for more compliant masses to feed the dependency machine that keeps the left viable.
In three days the democrats will take over the House they successfully stole last month.From the beginning they will eschew the business of running the country,save raising taxes and trying to bring in millions more illegal,potentially democrat voters.From day one they will concentrate on trying to impede the president with endless subpoenas and harassment just because they hate the fact he spoiled their party.If it hurts the country,they’re all for it.
When you grow up in an age where the family watched television together and good always triumphed over evil it’s an anathema to see how things have turned around. Evildoers triumph while innocents suffer because no one holds them responsible.Those we elect to represent us raise a sound and fury but it’s all for show.And the show will go on.I simply choose to step away and concern myself with what little I can control.
I may return some day,but that remains to be seen. Thanks for all the memories.

Mugging Taxpayers in the Swamp


The big dollar muggings in Washington these days are not done with pistols. The sophisticated weapons of choice are “sole source contracting,” lobbyists, and insiders. And the victims are not tourists, but taxpayers.

Large multinationals game the system using the revolving door between government and the private sector, with the help of aggressive lobbying. There are so many examples, but one is the fourth largest privately- owned company in the United States, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, which originated as one of the biggest accounting companies in America.

Federal contracting is big business, governed by dozens of federal statutes enacted by Congress, explained in dozens of legal volumes that can be found in every law library across the nation. Federal policy as provided in that governing law is based on the concept of “competitive bidding,” because as the most rudimentary economics shows, better results in terms of price and quality are obtained by competition rather than by monopoly.

But if a company is a crony favored by contacts, friends, or relatives of company employees, or of lobbyists working for the company, that company can get “sole-source contracts” or even sole source grants, not subject to any competition. The money flows just when the contact, friend or relative working inside of some contracting government agency signs on the dotted line, giving away some share of the federal government’s trillions in annual spending.

World Domination…This Time For Sure

Frau Merkel: Nation States MUST “Give Up Sovereignty” to New World Order


Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.
Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.

Her words echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”

Democrats: A plague on the nation

These people, these Democrats in Congress, are among the most privileged persons on the planet. They have enjoyed, more than most, the blessings bequeathed by the Founders, the authors of the Constitution. Yet they are determined, like Obama, to transform us into something this nation was never meant to be: a land without borders. While all of them are on record supporting a border wall in the past, now that Donald Trump is president, they all oppose it with every fiber of their being. They know that it will work, and they cannot abide Trump having a win.
They cheated in 2016 and are still stunned that their carefully calculated strategy did not work – thus, the cover-up, AKA the Mueller investigation, of their many crimes committed over the Obama years, many at the direction of Hillary Clinton with Obama’s knowledge and approval. Our once most revered institutions, the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, have been thoroughly corrupted. Mueller, a willing participant in that corruption, is up to his eyeballs in the cover-up.

Will any of these people at the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA, ever be held accountable? To date, they have not been. The power they have within the Deep State is beyond formidable; it is seemingly absolute.

The Democratic Party of today is an abomination. The assault on our constitutional republic began with Woodrow Wilson, and their long-range plan to overhaul what the Founders built is still operational. The left has nothing but contempt for ordinary Americans, especially those who voted for Trump.

Leftists are dangerous when challenged, like a pack of jackals dismembering its prey. They need to be defeated, indicted, arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned. They are a scourge on the nation as founded. They do not love this country; they seek to destroy all that was and is good within it.

Never Say Never

Tomorrow is the end of the year. It would be a fitting time to also be the end of my posting here.The entire American political situation is a farce,albeit a tragic one on the people who hold our rights as a sovereign nation sacred.Donald J. Trump is a generational figure we may not see twice in a lifetime.He stands firm in the face of scurrilous attacks on his character,outrageous verbal assaults on his wife and children and his supporters suffer mindless violence just because some sick animals feel like hurting somebody.He has borne more lies,slander and defamation than any president ever has or likely will have. All because he won an election that was completely rigged for Hillary Clinton.
He’ll fight hard;that’s just how he is.He gave up an idyllic lifestyle as a billionaire reality TV star to withstand the savagery of a cabal of hate mongering pricks who want to destroy him.They may get him in 2020,it may take until 2024 but they will get him.There will be no one after him with the balls to stand up to a fraction of what he’s been made to put up with.
At that point they will be free to set about their scheme for a One World government with the united Nations being the arbiter of all things.I just can’t continue to read and report on the screaming banshee Nasty Pelousy and her equally deranged cohorts trying to make each day a living hell for Donald Trump.The media will never relent. He’ll get credit for nothing and blame for everything. We know it’s all bullshit but it’s not aimed at us. It’s aimed at the single digit I.Q. thumbsuckers and bedwetters who want to believe the worst at all times.They all want blood but they can’t explain why.
There may be a time when I have the will to take part in the discussion that comes to no resolution. one must never say “never”.

Played For Fools Again

House probe of FBI-DOJ’s alleged anti-Trump, pro-Clinton bias hits unceremonious end — with no report

House Republicans unceremoniously ended their investigation into the way the FBI and the Department of Justice handled Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the bias allegations against President Trump.

The letter came less than a week before the Republicans formally lose control of the House to Democrats, while both Gowdy and Goodlatte are retiring from politics.

The Democrats have long criticized the Republican-led probe as a distraction from Mueller’s Russia investigation, with U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, taunting Republicans for their unceremonious end of the probe.

“This is how the House Republican effort to undermine Mueller by ‘investigating the investigators’ ends. Not with a bang, but with a Friday, buried-in-the-holidays whimper, and one foot out the door,” he wrote in a tweet.

The Problem Is Not Spending,Senator

Sen. Durbin Urges Trump to Reduce ‘Shootings and Homicides’ in Chicago by Increasing Federal Spending

Shootings and homicides are a byproduct of the environment of ignorance and violence you assholes have been cultivating since the 60s.The only answer to any perceived problem you can dream up is to throw more money at it. Chicago’s problems are all due to the democrats who have run this urban toilet for more than 70 years.

“The number of shootings and homicides that Chicago continues to experience is tragic and unacceptable,” Durbin told Trump.

“But while it may be easy to tweet about the problem, generating real and measurable solutions to help Chicago reduce gun violence requires more than 140 characters,” Durbin said. “Reducing violence in Chicago requires a comprehensive approach involving partnerships with local education and health officials, law enforcement, community stakeholders, and the federal government.”

All Their Way, All The Time

They flat out steal more than two dozen seats. Out in the open, unashamedly. There are unproven allegations of vote fraud involving a republican congressman in North Carolina. Far be it from these filthy pigs to allow anyone not a democrat the benefit of a questionable vote outcome. Theft is their stock in trade and they’re proud of it.

Rep. Steny Hoyer Says Democrats Won’t Seat North Carolina Republican Amid Election Fraud Investigation

“Given the now well-documented election fraud that took place in NC-09, Democrats would object to any attempt by [Mark] Harris to be seated on January 3,” Hoyer said in a statement. “In this instance, the integrity of our democratic process outweighs concerns about the seat being vacant at the start of the new Congress.”

Hoyer’s statement came just after the North Carolina state board of elections dissolved Friday without certifying the results from the 9th Congressional District. That dissolution was due to an unrelated, lengthy court battle over the board’s constitutionality.
