I Think Not

Pat Buchanan asks the only question that matters:The question is, is can we sustain this kind of intensity for 44 more months?

Let me rehash for you all, the Trump Agenda... why Trump Nation voted for Trump:
-Border Security
-protecting the American working class.
It's not complicated.
And... he was the only person from either party to make these issues a cornerstone (i.e the raison d'etre , if you are a Hillary voter/French/Bush Republican/same thing... so Fuck you. If you are Paul Ryan, go fuck yourself twice, and you'd probably enjoy that) of his Presidency.

IF you oppose Trump, you oppose the American working class.
You oppose 80% of America.
You oppose me.
It's personal.

The constant drumbeat of the fake corrupt press, the incessant Schumerizing of reportage, the John McCain crowd, the Bush Family Outfit, the Courts...
These, and others, are my enemy.

Trump may go down, as the Press, the DNC and the GOP all plot against him... but these issues will still remain.
See, you keep thinking it's about Trump. And for for those who oppose him, it is.
But it's not.
We didn't vote for Trump, The Man.
Trump, The Man came to us... offering deliverance.
A deliverance that nobody else believed we deserved.
Why is that?

Why is it, that you can hate one man so strongly that you lose all compassion for the rest of your country? (There is a parable here, but I'll leave that to those in a different pay grade.)

Trying to put a nation back together afterward will be a tough go, though, because remember...

Trump Nation are all a bunch of deplorable ignorant loser Nazi racists who fuck their siblings and never seen a dentist; unworthy of any respect or understanding.

Those who I expect to win this current struggle  will not be kind to us.
We are "not part of America." We have been told as much already.
So where do we go from here?

We have ceased to be a democracy and have become a mobacracy.
The strongest mob runs the show.
Unfortunately, the ones who voted for Trump, we who drastically need the change in policy, are too busy working overtime while  trying to provide for our families, to 'mob up' and cause trouble... until the day arrives, when we decide that there is nothing left to lose...
(when we decide to act like college students, you won't soon forget it.)
 A few of us are already there... (You first, I'll be right behind ya... No, you first... I'll be right behind ya...)


Shaming us didn't work last November, did it?
It won't work later, either.  

I don't know when that day will arrive.
I only know that it is getting closer.

Creepy

The last day of March, three years ago, I bought into this brand new Kia Sorento. (It is the second biggest mistake of my life, without a doubt. I will never again purchase the Kia nameplate, and neither should you)

The car came with a 10year/100,000 mile warranty.

Two days ago, I turned the 100,000 mile mark.

This morning, I get a phone call informing me that my warranty has expired and would I like to purchase an extension.

How did they know that my three year old car just turned 100,000 miles???
This is creepy, if you ask me.

Maybe Mexico Needs To Build Thier Own Wall

So, now there is talk in Mexico of instituting a border crossing fee as retaliation for the USA building a wall.

Go for it, Mexico. I haven't crossed your border in over 30 years, and should I choose to do so in the future I won't mind paying an entry fee.
You see, it's called 'maintaining and controlling your border'. Something you have refused to do as a good neighbor for several decades now. I'm glad you are finally coming around and seeing things our way.

I could go on, but I've got a wall to build.

China's Bastard

Wow... It's been nearly a month since my last post. I apologize. Things got a bit busy and time got away from me. I'll try to remedy that....

Center headlines appears to be North Korea, and the bastards they are. I got some thoughts on that ...

-I don't care who the President is, no nuclear power should be allowed to to carry on with the threats and outright bellicosity the Norks have been getting away with for too many years.
Have nukes is not just a privilege. It also requires a sense of responsibility.
Thank God that we finally have A Man in charge who won't put up this shit much longer.

-China all but gave birth to the nation of North Korea, and has nurtured them along all these years. In real life, if a crazy dog is threatening the neighbors and disturbing the neighborhood, it's the owner's responsibility to bring him to heel, or snuff him.

-We have plenty of leverage over China that until now previous presidents haven't seen fit to use. Once again, it's good to see that we finally have A Man in charge

-North Korea better be made into China's problem real quick like. There is no better solution than this.

John Lever: You Don't Know Who He Is, But You Should

I've mentioned in the past that I have a cultish obsession with a particular Manchester, UK band called The Chameleons.
It was with great sadness today that I have learned of the death of John Lever, who manned the skins for The Chameleons and did a lot of other work in his time.

John Lever wasn't just a drummer. He wasn't the 'bash and crash', rhythm-keeper drummers are known to be, but was a musician of the highest order, taking songs to another level, giving them life and dimension. John Bonham of Led Zeppelin is widely known for his greatness. John Lever was his equal. Damn straight, and every bit of it.



Catch that break after the intro. The pulse, followed by a series of hits and fills... stirring the piece to life, taking it to a higher plane.



Or this... No bash and crash, not frantic... It's subtle. Not many of those who bang skins can do this. I was a drummer back in the day, and I can tell you that drummers are not subtle. Never. We aren't created that way. What you are hearing here is a true musician applying his craft.  It says a lot when a drummer can go unnoticed while dominating a piece. He does it.




The Chameleons were influential with their use of dual guitar melodies. What goes unnoticed here is a seemingly different melody.  John Lever provides the intro: Pounding. Driving. Tone setting. The guitars enter the fray and things start to change. The strikes seem 'off'. Not where the typical drummer would put them. He's playing a different melody, to different time... but the timing is perfect. He is mortar and lace, holding the bricks together: weaving tween the guitars, enabling them to reach for the skies... and taking them there himself at moments.
Awesome work, by an awesome man.

The Chameleons never achieved the level of respect they deserved. Not much is known about him outside of his artistic circle. This means that John Lever will go largely unnoticed by the greater Rock n Roll community. This is a damn shame.

I do know that he was somebody's son. He was a father. A husband. Others loved him for reasons far greater than mine, and their loss pales in comparison to what I'm feeling. Today, my thoughts are with his family, his friends, and the Manchester music community.

Thank you, John Lever, for what you have given to me, and to the world. Your time here has meant so much, to so many.

Save The Planet!!

Ya think I'm joking, but I'm as serious as a heart attack... hear me out....

Much has been mentioned of a Border Tax on goods to protect American manufacturing.
First off, I want to say that it's a wonderful idea who's time arrived years ago.


The open borders crowd, on both the Right and the Left, will never go for it. These people hate the idea of an America that has any borders at all.
And, it is considered racist to put brown-skinned American workers before brown-skinned Non-American workers. (yeah, I know... explain that shit with logic if you can...)
You will never sell them on a Border Tax.

Therefore,  I believe it to be a non-starter, doomed to fail... and all because of semantics.
Call it something else.
You can never win the debate while the other side controls the language.

Call it the Environmental Impact Fee.
We've lost much of our manufacturing base do to environmental regulations. It is totally not fair to the American worker to expect him to compete in a market stacked against him due to environmental protections that the typical worker in China or Mexico (among others) doesn't have to abide by.
But what good is mandating that goods be produced with care to the environment when these same goods can be produced elsewhere, the planet be damned, and sold much cheaper (and thereby manufactured more often, damaging the Earth that much more) in the very place where their manufacture has been effectively outlawed... in order to protect the Earth?

Guess what? The Earth is not being saved this way.
Save the Earth!!!!
Propose the Environmental Impact Fee.
Why?
Because you'll get the support of all those sandal-wearing nancies at Whole Foods... How dare Hollywood get up on that podium and speak against it?... The college professors will wet themselves over it... Challenge any judge to strike it down...  Nobody from the traditional nature-raping wing of the GOP (Bush's, Romney's et al) can risk standing opposed...
and...
...it totally rips the moral high ground away from 'emerging' nations.
See? see?... ya dread-locked hippie? Mexico really does suck... get over it...

Trump wins, American workers win and the Planet is saved.
What's not to like?

And Again...

One paragraph tells you everything you need to know
Watson issued his 43-page ruling less than two hours after hearing Hawaii's request for a temporary restraining order to stop the ban from being put into practice.
43 pages in less than two hours?
The judge ruled before he even bothered to hear arguments in the case.
This can not be allowed to stand in a republic.
But it will... for now at least.

The republic is dying, folks. I've said it before.

When  judges are blatantly lawless, the law ceases to exist.
As it currently stands, only one of two choices will resolve this issue and steer the future: Total surrender of  the Right... or the use of arms.
There are no other options.

It is/was your country.
How badly do you want it back?
