My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the month “April, 2018”


Well, I have had it up to my eye balls with all these people being offended by what someone says. Sorry, I meant to say “liberal bastages” being offended by what a “conservative bastage” has to say.  The “liberal bastages” can say and do anything about or to a conservative and they think we should just let them have their way.  Well, not me my friend. I will call them out; and, I will call them whatever I want as that is what “free speech” is all about.  It is easy as hell to allow speech that you agree with; but, it takes a “set” to allow someone with whom you disagree to have their say.  That is what “free speech” is all about.  The act of allowing someone to express their opinion when you think it borders on or is “hate speech”.  I will continue to say what I want, when I want, and where I want and you’ll have to accept it as my right or try to shut me up. Please try! I served my country for that right as well as for your right. If you try to silence my voice or restrict my right, then do so at your own risk.  I use this forum to express and somewhat debate but I really do not debate well.  I think when it comes to point and I really want to end the debate–I’ll just drag you across the desk and slap “fire from your ass”. I put that in quotation marks as I was quoting my Dad. It is over at that point and I win. YEA!!! I know that is childish, but what can I say, I’m from the old school.

This thing about the high school kid who held the sign asking a gal to the prom with something like “if I were black I’d be pickin’ cotton, but I’m white and I’m pickin’ you for my prom date”.  I thought it was funny but here comes all the “liberal bastages” being offended.  It is a joke “dumbasses”!  This day in time there is still some racism in the world, or in our country, but “get over being a victim”.  There may not be anyone still alive in today’s world that lived during the time of slavery in this country.  BTW, do you know who it was that wanted to keep you “black folks” in slavery?  It was the party of “Dixiecrats” which evolved into the Democratic party of today.  And, the black community votes almost entirely for the democrats. REAL SMART, eh?  They, the liberals, have raised so much hell that the poor guy can’t even attend the prom or any other school functions the rest of the year.  How stupid. He made a joke.  I’ve done the same thing. “If I’d have known it was going to be this much trouble, I’d of picked that damn cotton myself”. Before you go jumping all over me, I said that to a Latvian friend of mine who really did pick cotton when he and his family came here from Latvia. See what jumping to conclusions leads you “liberal bastages” to.

It is a crying shame that we have all these hyphenated Americans when we ought to be just Americans.  I do not give a damn where you are from as long as you work, take care of your family and don’t expect me to do it for you– then you are a man and I will treat you like one.  BUT, come here and “lay on your ass” and expect the American people to care for you and yours, well you can simply kiss my ass. Is that plain enough for you to get my drift? No welfare. No rent subsidies.  No healthcare. No free lunches for kids. And no damn “ANCHOR BABIES”.  After all, it is only good “COMMON SENSE” that you take care of your family and I’ll take care of mine. If need be, any of you who want can now use my “soap box” as “I will sit a spell”.



Well folks, President Trump once again “put his money where his mouth is” so-to-speak.  He once again “laid down the law” to Syria and backed up his words with action. This is the second strike and the third strike may be the fatal blow. And, please take notice, Putin so far has hidden under his desk.  The Obama administration made an obvious mistake by not enforcing the “red line” he laid down. It made the US look weak and afraid to confront anyone.  Can anyone say North Korea?  They became bolder during that time due to the lack of “backbone” shown by Obama. Don’t think for a moment that they, North Korea, are not watching these events unfold and trying to figure out the same thing as everyone else. Is this Trump fellow a “crazy SOB” or is he one “badass SOB”.  I really don’t know my own self. BUT, but, but, it seems to be working so “if it ain’t  broke, don’t fix it”.

Let me tell you a short story to illustrate what I meant from above statement.  Years ago I used to visit a lot of “blues joints” in East St. Louis.  They were known to be rough places and were “black joints” if you get my drift.  No place for a “cracker cowboy” to say the least. But, there I was with my black cowboy hat and gold jewelry hanging everywhere including a solid gold “belt buckle”. People said I was crazy; but, I liked the music and was “pretty cocky”.  I got to know some of the regulars and had no problems although you would have thought so.  I walked thru the door of one of the “joints” late one night and heard someone from one of the tables say, “what’s this cracker think he’s doing in here”.  Someone else, one of the regulars at the table said, “That cracker is here quite often and is either a “crazy cracker” or one badass SOB so we just let him be”. Word spread and I never had anyone else ever challenge me. Same with Trump and the rest of the world.  They do not know which he is so they are choosing, for now, to “just let him be”. Funny how that works!

I’ve never met President Trump. But, people who have seem to say he is a pretty nice guy, so who knows if I’d like him or not. I do know that I do not like some of the things he does and some of his speech is not my style. Having said all that, he is accomplishing great things and is really trying to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” and for that he deserves credit. If I have a leak in my roof and the roofer comes out and says to me, “toss me that F-ing hammer”, I will not tell him not to fix my leaking roof.  I want the leak fixed, he is getting it done, so I’ll toss him the hammer and stay out of his way. After all, it only makes COMMON SENSE to do so. When he is done, I’ll pay him and be glad he came by.  And guess what, Trump is not taking any pay as he is donating it straight to the VETS, I think. Now that is a bargain.

You can bet your last dollar that all the “bad actors” in the world are paying attention to this and thinking maybe, just maybe, “we ought to just let America be”.  If they have any COMMON SENSE that’s just what they are thinking and for that I am grateful.

Hey, these “kids” first wanted to control “guns” and now they want to control “free speech”.  The calling of boycotts because you disagree is a form of limiting “free speech”.  I and millions of others disagreed with what these “kids” said and did; but, we did not call for boycotts of the stations which put them on air. It continues to amaze me that the media, of all professions, does not see the “folly” in their actions. Does no one realize that the only reason we have the 1st amendment is because of the 2nd amendment? It just makes “COMMON SENSE”. These “kids” have no life lessons and need to get educated about the process before trying to advise the “adults in the room”.

They are now calling for advertisers to boycott the Ingraham Angle to try to shut her up.  She has every right to say what she thinks; and, if they do not like it, then that is their problem.  Just shows what they were not taught in school. We did not call for boycotts of stations which put them on air.  They have the same right to “free speech” as everyone else although I disagree with their ideas. How ’bout we try to shut them up and see what response we get.  They, the “kids” and the media would be screaming for their right to “free speech”.  Well, dumbass, you can’t make this a one way street and neither can I. That is why I stand by and listen to the “liberal bastage’s” BS.  If I want my right, then I have to understand that I must afford them the same right and protect it at all cost.  Without “free speech,” we cease to be a free nation and the only thing protecting our “free speech” is the 2nd amendment.  Redundant, redundant, I know as it was mentioned above; but, so important, that it requires repeating. It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to beat this into some hard heads.

I saw on some show the other day a group of “kids” saying, “if only we could see with our eyes what they saw”.  I can understand that a little; but, let me ask you and them a question, “I saw a horrible auto crash last week—blood and guts everywhere. So, because I saw that am I now an expert on auto safety and everyone should listen to me on what safety laws should be passed? I also saw, with my own eyes, a dog chasing a car.  Now, does that make me believe he could drive the “damn thing” if he catches it?  And furthermore, are you going to listen to me about if he catches it we must give him a driver’s license? This just shows the stupidity of the entire debate. I have a right to free speech and use it here.  I also have a right to own a gun and will exercise that right if you come on my hill to try and confiscate it.  In fact the “kids” have me thinking maybe we ought to buy more weapons although we have plenty; but, again, it is my “right”.

Now, if you see it differently, that’s OK. But if you disagree with me, maybe you should check your “hole” card as you are most likely wrong.  And I promise I will not force you to own a gun. See how simple this is. You stay in your house and run your business and I’ll do the same.  The only time I will confront you is when you come to my house and try to interfere in my way of life.  So simple it’s stupid to do any other way. And besides, it makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.
