Is common sense no more?

LOOK OVER HERE AT THE SHINY THING !!!!!

Now, isn’t this just the finest hour for our Presidential candidates? Both have glaring flaws, but have you noticed that the press is only talking about one candidate’s gaff?  Have you noticed that Hillary’s speeches are leaked the same time as the remarks from 11 years ago by Trump are released?  It has not been even thought of but you can bet that the CCM, Clinton Crime Machine, had these remarks from Trump in their pocket to release when they needed to over shadow her speeches to Wall Street bankers. The CCM is trying to deflect by saying these are from Russia and may not be accurate.  Really, well just release the speeches and you can prove if they are accurate or not.  Do not hold your breath as these phony “liberal bastages” are lying once again.  I certainly do not approve of what and how he said what he said; but, it is from 11 years prior and it was not for broadcast.  All men and women, or at least 99 percent of them, have said things they would not want to have repeated in public.  The other 1 percent are just lying.  Just like Hillary is lying.

What he said will not really hurt anyone. But, she, on the other hand, has admitted she wants “OPEN BORDERS”.  Do you think that might hurt the American job market?  Of course it will!  “OPEN BORDERS” is what the democrats have dreamed about for years.  They are at the present time trying to push thru the citizenship of a large number of immigrants so as to give them the “right to vote” in the election.  That is just wrong!!!!!  She also admitted during her speeches that she has two personas, one private and one public.  Is that what is meant by “TWO FACED”; you tell me?  I guess Trump cannot have two personas.  At least with “Trump” we have a man who may be able to turn this country around; and if he can, I for one, do not care if he says vulgar words, or if he has been married to whom, and how many times, or if he is a rude “asshole,” which he is, just fix the country.  Folks, he is our only chance to step back from the cliff before the likes of “HILLARY” shove us over the edge.  She admitted in the same leaked emails that she does not relate to the average person because of the stature of the life she has led.  Can someone please say, “ELITIST”!  She thinks of the average “AMERICAN” as beneath her and that they are “DUMBASSES”.

Folks, this thing we call “KILLARY” has been in the public eye for 30 years or so and has been involved in “corruption” since the beginning.  She has always been a crook and will never change.  Watch what I’m telling you, the democrats will cheat during this election just as they have in the past.  All we can hope for is that enough people show up to vote for “TRUMP” that the democrats will still lose even with all their cheating.  Democrats are a “sorry bunch of SOB’s” to quote my dad.  He, like Trump and myself, spare few words.  All three of us “do not call a spade a spade–we call it a _____ shovel”.  It is time for the “AMERICAN” public to be told the truth and how it really works in the real world.  It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.  Trump is talking “COMMON SENSE” so use yours and help him “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”.

HILLARY TRYING TO BECOME THE LARGEST ” PLANTATION” MASTER !!!!!

Yes, that is what I said.  It is true as she is vowing to replace “Obama” as the “MASTER OF THE LARGEST PLANTATION” in the world.  They, he and Hillary, along with the “liberal progressives” and their policies have established the “largest plantation” in the world known as the welfare system.  It, along with all programs for the poor, have put more people into poverty than anything else.  All who are a slave to the system should think about this “long and hard” before deciding how to vote this November.  “Obama” has done nothing to help the poor and has been a detriment to the “black community”.  Everything has gotten worse for blacks during his administration. Check it out if you do not believe me.

Why do we call it a “plantation”?  Well, let’s just look at a couple of things.  They, Hillary and Obama, want to keep everyone on welfare and if the truth were known they would like to increase the numbers not lower them.  Let’s see what welfare really is.  But first, let’s look at what the plantation owners of yesteryear did for their slaves.  They gave them a shack in which to live, they gave them a little food, they gave them shabby clothes to wear and they did not educate slaves very well and paid them next to nothing.  Well “DAMN”, we just described the “WELFARE SYSTEM”.  There must be a mistake here. Did I get something wrong?  Am I confused? This describes the system that Hillary plans to saddle you with and ride you like the “MULE” you are all the way to the “WHITEHOUSE”; or, should I have said to the “MASTER’S HOUSE”?  They have you on a string so when they “jerk the string, you dance or perform”.  Now I know this will hurt a lot of “folks” feelings; but I do not care as this is the truth and you need to hear it and I need to say it so my conscience will be clear.  The neighborhood’s most poor people live in are nothing more than “cesspools” and they have been run by “LIBERALS” for 50 years or more.  Check out Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland and Philly to name just a few.  If you do not believe me look up Pruitt Igoe Project in St. Louis, Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago or Marcy Projects in Brooklyn.  It is interesting reading; but, it will also shock you.  These projects implemented by liberals have ruined the lives of thousands of poor people.  It breaks my heart to realize that an innocent child born into these neighborhoods has no chance. It is a waste of humanity and should be reversed. But, as long as these uneducated people keep electing liberals to run their government, it will never change, only get worse.

It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to bring in new and different leadership to make the changes needed.  It will not be easy, nor will it be fast, but the only thing that will lead to change is education–which will lead to better JOBS–which will lead to upward mobility.  Try “COMMON SENSE”  as the DEMOCRAT system has failed you completely. It is time to try something new for “poor folks” in general and the “black community” especially.  Here is a “NOVEL IDEA”: try voting Republican since they were the party that freed you in the beginning. As I have always said, “What the hell do you have to lose”. I think one of the candidates said something like this recently. Maybe, just maybe, you should consider voting for them for a change.

“DO AS I SAY, NOT DO AS I DO, THE CLINTON’s MOTTO !!!!!

Well, here go again!  Same “old crap”, different day, for the Clinton Crime Machine, known as CCM.  These people have no shame and the democrats have no morals for letting her run for office.  I just want you to think about this for a while and see if you can follow the money.  The Clintons, thru the CCM commonly called the Clinton foundation, just took slightly over a million dollar deduction on their taxes for a contribution to the “Clinton Foundation”.  Does this seem strange to anyone as this is like me taking a tax deduction for giving to myself?  They give it to the foundation and then receive all these benefits from the foundation in cash back for travel expenses, etc.  In effect, they are deducting gifts or donations to themselves.  Is this a great country or what?  Then they give money to a golf tournament which raises money which is given to the foundation for another deduction. They got more back than they gave.  It is “round and round” they go. They have taken millions from foreign governments in exchange for favors while in office which is illegal.  They are laundering money from all over the world and it seems no one gives a “damn”.  There are lots of people in jail for “money laundering” while these “crooks” are just “laughing all the way to the bank”.

When will the American public wake up?  Never, I suppose!  If you elect her to office, you will “get what you deserve”.  The CCM, Bill, Hillary and Chelsea, are just an upscale form of the “old mob” numbers game.  Capone would or will be rolling over in his grave.  Had he thought of this, the “government” would have never touched him. They are just as “BAD” as Capone and I believe they have had people “wacked” for business purposes just as Capone did.  The only difference is that Capone had the “balls” to do a couple himself.  Chelsea married into an extension of the CCM as her father-in-law is or has done “time” for fraud.  I guess that was an “arranged” marriage.  Maybe that is why “Killary” did not want the public to see those emails about the wedding.  Wake up you bunch of “dumbasses”– these people are so, so very crooked and will continue to screw the American public if elected.  We, as in I, tried to warn you about Obama, but NO, you just had to elect the “first black man” to be president.  Well, how has that worked for you?  He is well on his way to destroying America and Hillary has pledged to continue his policies. Now, a lot of you can’t wait to elect the first woman as president.  If you want to leave your children and grand children a “muslim” country, then vote for this “wicked witch”.  Sorry for the misspelling, but I was never great at spelling.  Mark my word, shortly after leaving office Obama will have this “great conversion” to Islam.  He was, is, and will always be a “sorry-ass muslim”.  I just wish his so called “allah” would call him home and get the “sorry SOB” out of our hair.  I’ll have some “hard words to follow” in another blog about Obama.  You might have guessed, “he is not one of my favorite people”.  But alas, if “allah” just has to call someone home, I would prefer it be Hillary; but, I know he hates the “witch” as much as anyone and does not want to listen to her “crap” any more than I do.

All of my observations are based on “COMMON SENSE” and some emotion which I feel is in short supply these days.  You, by reading this blog, are being exposed to “COMMON SENSE” and I hope you get infected.  This is one disease the American public needs to acquire.  Let me know if you come down with the infection and stay tuned as I will offer more “doses” as time marches on.

 

SAME CRAP, JUST DIFFERENT DAY!!!!!

Well, here we go again! The Clinton Crime Machine is at it again. This family has no shame.  They are as crooked as a “dog leg”.  They continue on their “crime spree” and the “dumbass liberals” just keep eating it up.  I wonder if they will ever decide that they, the “dumbass liberals” have been “had” enough. You know that behind the scenes the “Clinton Crime Machine” is laughing its ass off how easily they fool their supporters. You really have to be a fool to believe anything that any of this family says.  I know some have forgotten, while some have never known, and others are too young to have lived thru all their “CRAP”; so, here it is, but a slight reminder of just some of the nonsense they have pulled.

  If you’re under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Ba
ird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.

Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the #$%$ eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.

After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type of low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next.

 

Now, as I stated above, this is just a partial list of things which they have been involved in.  This has been going on since the 1990’s.  They have perfected the art of  “corruption” to the point that they believe that what they say is true. Please avail yourself of the information as it is easy to find on the net.  If you vote for these crooks once again, then you are part of the problem.  Check out what Billary and Hillary have been up to all the way back to the ’90’s.  Show me that you are not as stupid as I think you are.  Use the “COMMON SENSE” the good “LORD” gave you to research the facts and I’m sure you will look at the “Clinton Crime Machine” differently.

LET’s JUST TRY THIS !!!!!

Alright folks, here it comes. This is going to be the “COMMON SENSE” of “COMMON SENSE”.  Like the title says, “Let’s just try this”, and let’s just try this for 30 days.  There are “TEN” rules that were passed down on tablets years ago that you should live your life by just as they require.  Maybe require is to harsh a word; but, for the sake of argument, let’s just use it or you can interject your own word.  These “TEN” are not a request but rather rules on how you should lead your life, day in and day out.  Stop for just a moment and think about how simple life would be if everyone simply lived by the “TEN”.  No stealing, no murder, in fact no crime at all and when something did happen which harmed another, the person at fault would just make it right.  We would love and respect one another and be proud that we could. We would do the right thing without someone applying force to make us comply.  There would be no need for police, judges or courts as there would be no crime or “law suits”.  We would “honor and obey” those which the “TEN” points out.  Really, the “TEN” are not that hard to follow.  We make life much harder than it has to be by not following the pattern set forth for us.

I know a lot of folks who must try to do the wrong things in life.  There is such turmoil in their life and they just “can’t see the forest for all the trees”.  The world seems to be upside down right now.  What, in the “old days”, was right and just is now all wrong and it seems as though we have raised a generation that really “does not know right from wrong”.  We as a society have failed.  We failed to teach them the correct way to live their lives and are now reaping the consequences of those teachings.  We failed to teach them the rewards of our labor and furnishing a warm and loving home in which they can mature.  We failed to teach them of honesty and are reaping the results in dishonest people and dealings.  We failed to teach them of honor and respect and see it everyday where they not only do not respect one another; but, they have no respect for themselves.  We have failed and now want to blame them because of their actions in the world; but, they are ignorant of “life’s lessons” because we failed to teach them the correct way to live.  Think about this and be honest with yourself.  Did you, or are you, furnishing a warm and safe home, have you spoken to them about how to live their life with “honor and respect”?  Have you led them toward the “light” or have you cast them out into a stormy sea toward the darkness?  It is never too late to start, so start today.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

Now, here is the part where I would usually furnish you a list of the “TEN”; but, not today.  I remembered what I was taught as a young man.  My parents always said, “I could tell you and you would forget it. But, if I make you look it up, you will remember it for life”.  So, if you do not know the “TEN”, then go look them up. Then you will remember them for life.  I can and will tell you where to begin your search.  It is called “THE GOOD BOOK”, “THE BOOK OF LIFE” or “THE BIBLE”.  Once you find the “TEN”, be sure you pass on the information to your kids and loved ones.  And because you have already started by doing this research, I invite you to read the “BIBLE” as you will benefit from the study and the reading.  As I mentioned in a previous blog, I was shamed into reading it by a couple of young ladies and it has been a blessing.

Somewhere in there it speaks to how you should serve your employer as you would serve the “LORD”.  So take heed the next time you think about slacking on the job.  You made a deal with the boss when you accepted the job to give him “an hour’s work for an hour’s pay”.  As the old saying goes, “JUST DO IT”.  Any less is stealing; and after you do your research, you will understand and drop me a comment here on this blog.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

KING OBAMA HAS SPOKEN !!!

It is amazing how not only the Congress but the American public is just rolling over while this fool, Obama, continues to govern in a lawless and unconstitutional fashion.  My best guess why the Congress hasn’t moved to impeach him for his lawless ways is that the Democrats control the Senate so it would go no where.  That being said, you still have to try, not just throw up your hands and complain.  The President has changed the ACA some 29 times and it, in today’s form, looks nothing like what was passed with 100% Democratic votes.  Not one Republican  voted for this mess and now the public should be aware of why.   They, as a lot of Americans, knew what a mess it would turn into.  And a mess it is !!!  The President just recently made another change to delay the “employer mandate” to relieve pressure on the Democrats for the up coming mid-term elections.  If you do not understand this, let me explain it to you.  You remember the chaos when about 6 million people lost their coverage when the “individual mandate” kicked in; well, the “employer mandate” would have seen about 40 million people lose their coverage when the “employer mandate” was to kick in—so, the President simply moved the date until after the mid-term election.  The same problem will occur; but, it will be after the elections and by then the Democrats will have 2 more years to screw the public.  The changes to the system will be the same as will the pain to the voters. But, they, the Democrats, are banking on being re-elected by that time and can again give both their “middle fingers” to the voters.  If you vote them back in, that is exactly what will happen.  So, it is time to turn the Senate over to the Republicans so that they can start getting this mess cleaned up.  To do otherwise makes no “COMMON SENSE” at all.

This is by far not the first or the last thing this President has or will do that is unconstitutional.  The first that I can remember is the firing of the “CEO” during the take over or nationalization of GM.  He had no authority to do that, but Congress and the public let him get by with the action and it only embolden him.  If he would have had his hand slapped then, we would not have this mess to deal with today.  He has written several unconstitutional “executive orders” such as the “dream act” and now some 29 changes to the ACA.  No where in the Constitution does it grant him powers to make or change laws as that power is to be in the congressional arm of the government. PERIOD !!!  And it makes good “COMMON SENSE” and is there for the checks and balances in our system.  America needs to stand up now or forever be changed.

The Democrats are scrambling to find someway to be re-elected so I am going to “throw them a bone” here and now. So listen up Democrats, “If you want to increase your odds of being re-elected you’d better get on this band wagon of stopping this President in his lawless pursuit of “executive orders” or you will be swept out of office like yesterday’s trash”.  I know you do not get it; and if I have to explain it, then to hell with you and your corrupt President and his administration.  You, as Democrats, are seen as a part of the “most corrupt Democrats of all time”— “BIRDS OF A FEATHER, FLOCK TOGETHER”.  And, because you, along with the “lame stream media,” continue to support this “LIAR” the public will send you packing.  None to soon, I must add.  You have stood still for lie after lie and such stupid crap as “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”.  Now, doesn’t that make you proud she is a Democrat?  Really, are you going to try to defend her? Or, what was the one about ” the astronauts landing on Mars”?  That is another piece of work I bet you are proud of.  I could go on and on like bringing up that deep thinker Watters.  She is not smart enough to “come in out of the rain”.  And what about the likes of Barney Franks or Al Franklin.  Now there’s a “pair to draw to”.  Come to think of it along with that pair and the other mention three of a kind that makes a “full house” which is usually a winning hand in poker, but in this case makes for a “stupid bunch” and a losing hand.  After this short review of some of your most intelligent, I’m not sure you as a collective body has enough smarts to see that this President has been using the bunch for his own gain.

We will see if there are any Democrats with the brains or balls enough to stand up and denounce this fool as it would only make “COMMON SENSE” to do so;  but, I’ll not hold my breath.

MLK, WOULD HE BE A CONSERVATIVE TODAY ???

Boy howdy, am I going to stir up some liberals! We have just recently come off of the MLK holiday so I thought I might present some thought provoking ideas. They, the liberals, may have a heart attack after reading what I have to say.  That is OK with me as I have for sometime been trying to rid the world of their plight.  I truly believe that MLK would indeed be a conservative today and here is a news flash: he may have, or was borderline, at the time  of his death.  Just like Governor Martinez said after a meeting with the republican committee in New Mexico, “Damn I’m a Republican”; and just like her, I think, MLK probably said to himself, “You know I find myself agreeing more with conservatives everyday.”  Now I realize that this is a hard pill for some to shallow; but, I will make my point in the words to follow.

First off, MLK was a “man of the cloth”, a “God-fearing Christian,” which tells me he had to be more conservative than all those so-called Christian “Dixiecrats”.  There is no way you can be a Christian and be a democrat.  As I have stated before, the two are opposing ideas and are 180 degrees at different ends of the scale.  So, MLK was a Christian thusly more conservative.  He also believed in equal pay for equal work which is a conservative principle.  Democrats believe in the union where you get paid the same, but that you can not be fired so the guy next to you can get the same pay for half the production.  MLK applied for a gun permit but was denied.  He surely believed in the 2nd amendment or he would have not applied for the gun permit.  Yet another conservative principle.  By the way, the blacks, as slaves, were not permitted to own a weapon or gun powder for that matter. Just another restriction of rights, so the black community of today better be careful of what they wish.  He as a Christian would never have thought it a great idea to pay a person unemployment for almost three years and to allow welfare to be spent on other than basic survival items.  Again, another Christian, but also conservative principle.  He was big into a man being judged by “his character rather than the color of his skin”.  Yet another conservative principle.  The republicans are the party that freed the slaves and yet the “old yellow dog democrats” convinced the blacks to vote for them because of the welfare system.  That system is just another form of keeping people on the plantation.  It is truly amazing that the democrats preach one thing in the light of day and practice something completely different in the dark of night.  Be a man, stand on your own two feet, take care of your own family, get a good education and get in the game.  That is not only what republicans stand for but it is the “AMERICAN” way and shall I say makes “COMMON SENSE”.

So, here we are after taking a look at the material presented; and, I for one can only conclude that MLK, if alive today would not only be more conservative today than he was before he was assassinated; but might very well be promoting the election of conservatives over liberals to public office.  I can only imagine how he would have changed and how he might have changed the landscape of American politics.

It is hard to view our America in the shape it is in today knowing all the while that with a few simple “COMMON SENSE” changes we could get back to the ideas that led us to the  greatness of yesteryear.  Please inform yourselves on the issues and vote for the people who really want to turn this ship around.  We need people in office that are not concerned with their own well-being, but with the well-being of our country. After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to support the true patriots.

OBAMA’S STATEMENTS, DEEDS AND LIES !!!!!

How could anyone miss one of the latest lies from President Obama.  Ever hear, “If you like your plan you can keep your plan; or if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period”?  This was just a portion of lies, deeds and statements that this President has made in order to remain in power.  Do you really believe that the people would have re-elected this fool if he had told them the truth about how they would lose the insurance they had for a more expensive plan?  Don’t hardly think so! When Mr. Romney brought this up during the debates, your President, not mine, looked directly into the camera and lied knowing all the while if he told the truth, or if the people found out the truth, he would have been defeated.  He lied for his own personal gain.  We all, the conservatives, tried our best to explain it; but they, the democrats, got away with another lie.  The following list is info collected from the internet about all the misgivings of this President.  They are listed here, a few but not all, and I ask you not to believe me; go check it out for yourselves.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do your own homework.

1. Obamacare–72% of Americans against it. Facing unconstitutionality ruling.
2. The failed $850 billion stimulus–pay-offs to Union supporters.
3. High, persistent unemployment—Real Unemployment approaches 20%

27. Returning bust of Churchill to Great Britain and stupid gifts to Queen.
28. Removing missile shield from Poland & Czech Republic, refusing allies input.
29. Backing would-be dictator of Honduras when that nation’s Supreme Court rightfully removed him from office
30. Failure to push for quick ratification of free trade agreements w/ Columbia, Panama & South Korea
31. Indecision on Afghanistan surge coupled w/ announcement of eventual withdrawal.
32. Sending billions of our tax money to support muslim brotherhood in Egypt.
33. Appointment Craig Beck to NLRB via recess appointment
34. Appointment of FCC commissioners who are pursuing “net neutrality” w/o Congressional authorization
35. Failure to resume full water deliveries to CA’s Central Valley because of the Delta Smelt
36. Attempt to close Guantanamo Bay–STILL OPEN
37. Attempt to try terrorists in NYC
38. Janet “The System Worked” Napolitano
39. Government takeover of student loan program–shutting out lenders who underwrite loans–this effectively puts the government in control of who gets them.

As mentioned previously, this is just a portion of what this President has done and said that is not good for the country.  Let me explain one more example which may finally convince you that this man is clueless as to true business practices.  He recently said, “that by extending the unemployment benefits we could develop 200,000 jobs”.  Really Mr. President, is this the best you can do?   If that is true, then it would make good “COMMON SENSE” for us all to go on unemployment benefits.  Just how many jobs do you want?  Just figure out how much welfare, as that is what the unemployment benefits have become, do you need to put everyone back to work.  Did you catch that?  He wants to give benefits to keep you unemployed to form more jobs.  Who the hell is going to do the jobs if we are all on unemployment?  As stated previously, “this man is clueless”.

To wrap this up, in the future when these idiots from the left make such foolish remarks, call them out.  We should have a press that does that, but most of them are just as clueless and just as dishonest as this entire administration.  Please hold each and every representative responsible, party be damned.  If they do not do what is best for this country, then send them packing.  After all it just makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

WHO HE IS !!!

Hey folks, I know I write a lot about politics as it is of real interest to me and because they just make it too easy.  I have decided to change pace a little and include a piece that I authored  several years ago.  This piece was written in response to a sermon delivered by my pastor at the time, Dr. Mike Miller.  Dr. Mike was having to go before the state Presbyterian board or committee for qualification purposes, I think, and “Who Is He?” was the question posed to each candidate.  As he was preparing, he realized it would be a great sermon or question to pose to the congregation.  I know he thought I was not listening; but I was, and it really got me to thinking, thus my response.

For all who know me personally and are aware,  I have always been a hunting/fishing fanatic. I think it comes from the years I spent living with my Grandma on the Texas gulf coast each summer.  I slept on a screened front porch and hunted and fished every day.  I would wake up each morning as the sun came up to a breakfast of two pieces of toast, with peach jelly and a glass of cold milk on the table, prepared by my Granddad.  As soon as I ate, he would take my Grandma and I down to the bridge over the bay and I would spend the day fishing and running the bay’s edge hunting bait.  Made pretty good money selling bait to the tourist.  Maybe that is where I developed my selling skills and work ethic.  It is also probably what developed my love of a nap after lunch.  You see, Granddad would bring us lunch each day and then I’d take a nap on the cot he set up under the bridge.  If you have never slept under the shade of a bridge with the cool bay breeze over you, then you have not enjoyed all of God’s creations. (I know I got to rambling, but it will explain some of my “Who He Is”.)

The following, as stated previously, is in response to a sermon to show that sermons really do carry a message. This piece has never been published and was recently found during a “fall cleaning”. The old saying, “listen and learn”, might apply here and makes good “COMMON SENSE”.

Dear Mike,

I know I will never go before the committee, but I felt compelled to think about “Who Is He?” and these few thoughts came to the forefront.

He Is
– The beauty of an early morning sunrise as well as the serenity of a foggy morn.
– The agility of a wren hopping from branch to branch as I sit motionless on a stand.
– The softness of the bunny crossing my legs as I sit and watch and listen for Ole Tom Turkey at dawn.
– The crackle of grass under foot in a high meadow on a frosty morn.
– The symphony of sound from the gobble of mature birds throughout the hollows in the Ozarks.
– The fluid motion and abrupt stop of a pointer working a meadow and finding scent.
– The rippling of taut muscles in a retriever as it flies through the air to enter the water for a grand retrieve.
– The love and devotion of our animals who strive to please.
– The gracefulness of a deer as it clears a fence to enter an oat patch.
The diamond like glistening of the sunlight off a magnificent buck in a clearing.
– The beauty and grace when a flock of ducks set their wings to decoy.
– The ripple on the mirrored pond as a bass feeds at daylight.
– The serenity of the Laguna Madre at daylight on a calm morning.
– The furiousness of a trout exploding on a top-water bait.
– The warmth of a Lab’s tongue as he licks his master’s hand on a cool fall morning in a duck blind.
– The rush of feather, air, and color when a pheasant takes to the air.
– The crispness of that same pheasant’s cackle as he flushes.
– The call of the Bobwhite at the far distant end of a meadow.
– The call of the morning dove soft across the hills.
– The crow of the rooster, beaconing each morning.
– The excitement of the young pup at the sight of his master.

He Is
– The tenderness of a mother’s love.
– The sternness of the father’s hand.
– The sweetness of a daughter’s goodnight kiss.
– The total love and support of the family.
– The fellowship of friends and congregation.
– The knowledge of the elderly.
– The smile of the stranger on the corner.
– The laughter of children at play.
– The clear ring of church bells ringing out on a Sunday morning.
– The sweet smell of flowers in the spring.
– The renewed hope that comes with the greening in the spring.
– The harmony of a small country church as they belt out a hymn.
– The sorrow at the loss of loved one or friend.
– The worth of a hand shake when someone says, “How are you, dude?”
– The inspiration to examine “Who He Is?” from a recent sermon.
And last, but not least: The love of a good wife.

As you can tell, I saved the best for last, as is usually the case. Hopefully, this will help to inspire you, as your sermons are not going to waste.

Hopefully, this piece will inspire you to examine your own life to find joy in all God’s blessings which have been bestowed upon you.  As you might garner from the piece, my life has been blessed and touched by the hand of God.  He has kept me here on this earth even through open heart surgery; and hopefully, I can fulfill what he wants me to accomplish as it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so

THE MOST EDUCATIONAL TOOL EVER, THE TELEVISION !!!

I know, I know, you all think I’m crazy with this thought about the television.  I can hear it all now.  Each and everyone is saying, “He has finally lost his mind as there is nothing on the T.V. worth watching, much less learning”.  You are right! But, the point you are missing is that our young people are learning from what is shown on the T.V.   The sex and violence are on nearly every channel and are watched over and over everyday by our youngsters.  So, guess what, they are learning all about sex and violence.  I did not say in the title that it was a good force in education, only a force.  We, as a group, must decide if this is the type of material we want stuffed into our children’s brains.  After a while, they become desensitized to the material and start to emulate in real life what they have learned from the T.V.  I was bad enough when the hormones started to “rage”; but, if I had been exposed to all the sex and nudity like our kids are today, I’d have been a “wild man”.  You can hardly find good programing for a family during any time slot.  Just look at the “music videos” for an example.  They border on the edge of porn, not soft porn but hardcore porn.  Let’s take a short stroll down “memory lane” and compare yesteryear with today.

In the time frame in which I grew up, the channels, all three of them, would not or could not even show a “lady with child”. While today, they will not only show her but show her in the nude.  Back in the days, Lucy and Ricky, of “I LOVE LUCY” even had to have twin beds and full length pajamas; while today, they show groups of people in large “king ” sized beds; all naked.  I guess what has set me off on this topic is that the wife and I were watching a show the other night and an ad came on for a “Trojan vibrator for women”.  This was during the family hour and I could only think, “how would the parents explain this to a nine/twelve-year-old”.   I know many will say that they already know of this material…but, doesn’t that make my point.  Does a child of that age need to already know of such? COMMON SENSE says “let kids be kids”.  They have their whole life to experience this type of material and do not need to be exposed at such a young age.  And, we wonder why we are having such an explosion in the illegitimacy rate.  COMMON SENSE says,” we are dumber than a stack of rocks on this subject”.

Now to the violence issue.  Have you really watched the “blood and gore” on any of the crime shows on T.V.?  Is it any wonder that our children no longer place a true value on life?  Have you reviewed the video games your children are playing on the x-box? We let them be exposed to killings after killings during their formative years and then are shocked when a certain percentage become ” serial killers” or “mass murders”.  COMMON SENSE says, “monkey see, monkey do”.  I know some will say “what an old fart” I am; but, stop for just a moment and think about how you were raised and how you are raising your children.  I’ll bet if you are truthful you will see a drastic difference.  All I’m asking is that you review the “cause and results” in play here.

I do admit  that I do watch some of the shows. But, I will also admit that the sex shown on some of these shows “stirs up my hormones”; and if that is true at my age, then we can only guess as to what it does to our younger folks.  I guess the old “COMMON SENSE” thing about “there is snow on the rooftop but a fire in the furnace” might apply here.  In any event, let it be said that I tried to warn you that if this trend continues, “It ain’t  going to get any better”.  If this trend of “sex and violence” continues, we will have to have “two conceal to carry permits”.  One for your weapon to protect yourself from random violence and one for condoms to protect yourself from random sex.
