What IS their statement, actually?

Ive been reading where many are amazed at the “world wide statement” made by the Women’s Marches that have been happening lately.I have to admit at some amazement myself.
If we’re all to be honest, these marches are about the loss of the candidate that the marchers supported than actual women’s rights. I’m trying to think of the rights that women have been denied that men enjoy. Nothing is coming to mind.
They protest for the right to have an abortion…uh, that been the law for decades now not to mention they actually have one up on me there since it’s physically impossible for me as a male of the species, to have an abortion.

They protest for equal pay and an end to the glass ceiling…there are plenty of examples of this no longer being the case. ( presidential nominee, hundreds of CEO’s, first woman to run a successful presidential campaign , etc.)
They protest to end bigotry and gender bias …yet what we hear from them IS bigotry and gender bias.
 It seems to me, if they are truly concerned with women’s rights, they would have been protesting the nomination of the democratic nominee. You know, the one that stole the nomination from the old white guy.
Not only has she defended and protected her husband , who has admitted to sexual assault of several women and who we all know as a predator, but she readily accepted massive donations from countries where women are routinely subjected to all kind of physical and emotional abuse and even death for not adhering to the insane and dehumanizing laws of their middle eastern countires
Seems a bit hypocritical.
But to see this hypocrisy one would have to have an open mind and be willing to look beyond the hype and big media bias . probably inconvenient if not difficult for some.

Sunday Morning

After watching some of Sunday Morning on CBS, What used to be an amazing program, I was going to post on just how bigoted and backward the political left and in particular it’s media lazies have become. But instead , I’ll look forward to the coming inauguration , the positive change it will bring, the promise of finally, honesty and integrity in the White House. Finally a President for all of America, no mater your race, creed or color. A president not be holding to anyone. Someone who literally relinquished everything to run for and become the President of the United States. A populist President ( maybe the first since TR) Good luck to him and to ALL of us.

The Left, an Epilog

I sit here and watch the (paid)protestors decrying the election with the media fanning the flames and I shake my head. These poor ignorant puppets haven’t a clue how our system works. Or maybe they do and just don’t care. After all, mob rule is what they are suggesting, not the system put in place by the founding fathers who set up the Electoral College to deny mob rule and give each state and its citizens, no matter the population a say in our elections.

So is there a deeper reason they are upset? Did they miss something that the rest of the country figured out.

YES.

When you and the Democratic party call me a racist,..for no reason other than to intimidate me,
When you call me a bigot,..for no reason other than to intimidate me,
When you call me a (fill in the blank)phobe..for no reason other than to intimidate me,
When you ask me to stand by while the Attorney General sell guns to the drug cartels,
When you ask me to stand by while the President and the Attorney General try and remove my 2nd amendment rights,
When you tell me Illegal immigration is actually just immigration ,
When you tell me its fine for the IRS to target political groups not in line with the administration,
When you tell me its fine to To support a VA that does more harm than good for our Veterans,
When you tell me the administrators at the VA deserve those bonuses,
When you tell me “What difference does it Make” when four Americans are killed by terrorist and the Secretary of State could have stopped it.
When you tell me its o.k. that same Secretary of State sets up a private server to hide her communications from the people and the congress,
When you tell me its fine CNN gives the questions to the candidate they support before a debate,

There is more, but I think you get the point. The American people, using the system put in place by our founding fathers, put an end to this deception and corruption once and for all.

The President Elect saw this aggravation by the citizens and tapped into it, winning this election fair and square.
The Obama/Clinton administration, the press and the Left in their absolute arrogance missed it.
So, If there is anyone to “blame” for the outcome of this election, the democrats should look in the mirror. You have lost touch with the American voter and you are now paying the price for your hubris.

If you don’t learn from your mistakes, you are doomed to repeat them.

The next four years should be interesting to be sure, but do not look for honesty or fairness from the media or the left.
Why should they change now.

Sounds Like A Plan To Me

With the protest, death threats and general caterwauling going on from the Left and their media instigators, I wonder if any of them even are paying attention to what President-Elect Donald Trump has been saying:

“What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between myself and the American voter — and begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington

Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

* FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;

* SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);

* THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;

* FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;

* FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;

* SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 actions to protect American workers:

* FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205

* SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership

* THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator

* FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately

* FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.

* SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward

* SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure

Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:

* FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama

* SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States

* THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities

* FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back

* FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:

Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

End The Offshoring Act. Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to give parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values.

Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.

This is my pledge to you.

And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.”
-President-Elect Donald Trump-

Sunday Morning

The fog rolled in early, way after I had turned in for the night. This cool damp morning makes my morning coffee on the porch nice. Fog, like snow tends to muffle the sounds we normally have to put up with. The traffic noise is gone and it’s replaced by the sounds of the water dripping off the roof and of course the birds. And as it’s so cool not even the air-conditioners are running. Unusual for this time of year on the third coast.

After waking up from his long night sleep, Beaux is enjoying a morning nap out here with me, only occasionally popping up to the sound of a distant bark or a squirrel running by. The “good life”.

With all the hullabaloo in the news and the daily grind in general, a nice, cool Sunday morning is just what the doctor ordered.

Enjoy yours

Thank You Mr. Obama (or, just another example of our government fixing it for us)

A letter sent  from our Dermatologist.

dr-marchand

The outlined paragraph is the heart of the issue.

Luckily, at this time I won’t have to find a new doctor. A good Dermatologist is important to me. I’ve tried a few and feel blessed to have found a physician as talented, intelligent and caring as Sharon.

Many of her patients will not be as lucky. I feel for them. It is not the physicians fault for having to make these changes but the fault of our elected officials. They lie, scheme and manipulate to garner votes and enrich themselves. Free healthcare is not free. Neither is it a right guaranteed in our constitution. that may upset a few of you..so be it. Its a fact. When Doctors are allowed to make their own decisions without government intrusion , we win. When Patients are allowed to use the free market to find their doctors they wish and shop for the insurance coverage they need..we win. When OUR government gets involved , we the people, lose.

Honestly, I don’t see an end in site. The upcoming election may be a start..or maybe not. If HRC is elected then the same lying, scheming and patronizing will continue..bet on it. If Trump manages a win?, …now THATS a good question.
