Date Night

21 Apr

Instead of watching a show last night, I watched this Youtube video on the Hydroplane Theory. What I love about this video is that it is presented by a mechanical engineer, so the theory is explained in very logical terms. It is basic 9th grade science, so the understanding of it is accessible. In other words, if this dumb blonde can get it, anyone can!

When you have a free night, watch this on the tell a vision or the computer. If you watch with someone, you will have fun discussing it afterwards.

The Outsiders

6 Apr

“The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.” ~ Karl Marx

 

Throughout my voting years, people have told me that it is futile to vote because the “ruling class” decides who will be the next president. I’ve always considered these folks to be conspiracy theorists. Then along comes Sanders and Trump, and all of a sudden; we’ve got two outsiders emerge who have disrupted the system thereby shining a light on the hidden machinations.

In the film, All The President’s Men, the character, Deep Throat, offers the sage advice to “follow the money”. When we follow the money, we come to see that we are indeed being played. Let’s look at the Clinton/Sanders election.

Without a doubt Hillary Clinton is the establishment’s choice for several reasons; the most important being that she can be bought. After leaving the state department Hillary accrued $12 million in speaking fees. It is interesting to see who she spoke to……. Surely shelling out six figures for a 30-minute speech isn’t for special favors in return, right?

Next in Clinton’s arsenal are the super PACs. These well-oiled machines spew out a plethora of negative ads. Would you believe $3 million alone was spent on negative Trump ads? A quick look at who her top contributors are gives you an idea of the amount of money shelled out and to whom favors are to be returned……

Top that off with a majority of superdelegates in her pocket, and Sanders’ only hope is that she will be indicted. Then again, the establishment does not want Sanders. Why? He will upset the rank and file of the “oppressing class”, aka the establishment, aka the elite, aka the bourgeoisie. Not that Sanders doesn’t have super PACs forking out money and doing some dirty work. One need only go to a Trump speech to find these dregs of society intimidating voters……

On the right, we have the Trump/Cruz/C3P0 election. Trump has put the establishment in quite a pickle. Why? Prior to running he held a position in their ranks. He is doing the unthinkable by not taking their money. The buck stops here, so to speak. They know very well what this means; like Sanders, their rank and file will now be upset. This has wreaked havoc in the Republican primaries. The super PACs have spent millions for Bush, then Rubio, and now Kasich and Cruz……..

Unlike the Democrats, they know that if Trump reaches the magical 1237 delegate count, they are screwed. In response, they have started to play dirty by stealing Trump’s already claimed delegates, running negative ads, placing negative media of Trump in place of important current events, and hinting that they may change the rules again at a contested convention……

What I find the most fascinating about this race is that I believe Sanders and Trump will not go gentle into that good night. My hopes are that they don’t.

No Sex Please, We’re Republican

31 Mar

Lately, there’s been a lot of hoopla on the interwebs over the National Enquirer story about Cruz having five mistresses. Interestingly (or not), none of the major news outlets are mentioning it. Let’s face it; while the NE has broken some factual and tawdry news, they are best known for their outrageous and patently false news.

When I see a story like this, I look at the big picture. What will voters do if it is true? Personally, I don’t care about Cruzes’ sex life so long as it wasn’t on the taxpayers’ dime. Will the majority think as I do? I think so. I believe at this point most Americans have decided their vote.

Some people say the NE story was put out by Trump for revenge of Cruzes’ campaign ad — which happened to be funny but below the belt — of Melania . This I know to be false as I had seen this Cruz sex scandal video on the youtube prior to the Cruz ad. Now the ad comparing Heidi and Melania was a tweet that Trump retweeted — which was also below the belt, but funny nonetheless — and it was his knee-jerk reaction to the Cruz ad. The reality is that they’re both behaving childishly.

Probably the most sinister thing I have heard about this NE story is that establishment GOP is behind it in order that both candidates be brought down and Ryan/Kasich go up as the GOP ticket. If there’s any truth to that, they are foolish and are asking for another McCain/Romney result.

While Obama does the Wave and Tangos (Whiskey Trot Fox) with the commies in Cuba as our ally gets burned by ISIS, while young and dumb Americans cheer a decrepit, snake-oil selling Socialist (aka Birdman), and while Hillary skates above the law with the help of a crony and corrupt DOJ, it’s good to know that the most important issues are the Republican candidates since one is a “racist-Islamaphobic agitator”, and the other a “sex-crazed liar”. Help. Me. Now.

 

The Great Uncucking

The Great Awakening refers to several periods of Christian revival in the United States. With that in mind, I suggest that we may be on the verge of what I call The Great Uncucking. Like churches i…

Priorities

21 Mar

When I consider the issues that a new president must face, I like to grade the issues on a most important/least important scale. For me, the most important issue facing our new president is the economy.

Obviously, I don’t buy into the rosy 4.9% unemployment U-3 BLS rate. The BLS U-6 rate of 10% includes short-term, and those required to work part-time because they can’t find full-time. The SGS (Shadow Government Stat) is 22.8%. Here are some issues that contribute to the rate:

Now that the ACA has decreed 30 hours is full-time, many businesses cannot afford the health insurance, thus leading to more part-time workers.

With corporate taxes being the highest in the world, many corporations are moving their plants out of this country. Since 2/2015 to now, the US has added 360,000 waiters, and only 12,000 manufacturing workers.

Because the Obama administration gutted the Clinton administration’s welfare reforms, many people who truly don’t need assistance are straining the already indebted system.

Every year government wasteful spending is in the billions; just google where and to whom some of the crap your taxpayer dollars are shelled out. Let me help: http://cagw.org/sites/default/files/pdf/Pig-Book-2015.pdf

These are just a few issues that the next president will have to tackle. How much knowledge does each of the candidates possess regarding businesses? How many employees have they hired/fired? How well do they work with others? Do they have any incentives to keep corporations in the US? How do they feel about the H1B visas, specifically enforcing the law on companies (like Disney) who have used loopholes to abuse the law by disenfranchising American workers for lower-paid immigrant workers? What do they think about TPP?

Now I know black lives matter, and cops lives matter, and gays need wedding cakes, and Christians need prayer chains, and Muslims need prayer rooms, and Mexicans don’t want a wall, and climate changers won’t be denied. But these just don’t fall under my “top” priorities for the next president.

Of Monsters and Men

25 Feb

Now that the primary elections loom before us like some sort of menacing, unseen looming thing, we are left in a quandary as to which vote we cast will best keep the monster at bay. Everyone with any sense knows the beast is not really hiding. Ponder this: Are we freer under our government than the founders were after the Revolutionary War?

As to how to take out this creature, it must be an outsider. The leviathan of remoras must be infiltrated; a cataclysmic disruption to awaken people, if you will. This much my husband and I agree upon. Then we announce our choice candidate for this quest, and the debates begin. I say Carson. He says Trump. Here’s how a conversation between us looks like:

Kells: Trump’s a lib.

Mr. Kells: So? Doesn’t matter.

Kells: Why do you say that? He’ll pass lib ideas.

Mr. Kells: He’ll get conservative ideas passed too.

Kells: Carson would do that.

Mr. Kells: I like Carson, but he doesn’t have the temperament.

Kells: I disagree. What about Cruz?

Mr. Kells: I like Cruz, but he’s part of the machine, and he won’t be the nominee.

Kells: He could be the nominee.

Mr. Kells: For the same reason that Hillary is still allowed to run is the same reason he will not be the nominee.

Kells: Hmmm…. That could change………..maybe. Well, I’m still voting for Carson in the primary.

Mr. Kells: Go ahead. It boosted Ron Paul’s ego when you voted for him in the primary.

It’s a lot of fun round these here parts. Speaking of fun, here’s a fun fact: 45% of Americans do not pay Federal Income Tax (remarkably close to Romney’s assessment). As the divide grows, so does the patience of the other 55%. Who shall be our knight-errant this year? Better question: Can he slay the dragon?

And the Oscar goes to…..

21 Jan

The latest Oscar buzz is now mired in controversy. People are not talking about the best actor, director, screenplay, &c.; they are talking about the lack of the best black actor, best black director, best black screenplay, &c.

Personally, I no longer watch the Academy Awards. Most of the time they pick shows that I’ve never heard of, or shows that after seeing, I scratch my head wondering why the hello they picked em to be in the running. The Academy voters are like the government; they decide which shows and performers you’ll like, and which shows and performers you won’t. I don’t believe they consider race.

It could be that my perspective is way off, and the Academy voters are racist pricks who choose white shows that everybody aught to love, and choose white actors who people unquestionably love…….like Sean Penn. Sorry, but I still stand by my contention that these silly voters aren’t racists. They are elitists.

Obviously, my train of thought is not on the same track as the latest buzzers. This quandary, I am told, is a black thing, and I wouldn’t understand. I notice no Asian or Latin faces in the mix this year. I wonder why they haven’t started a boycott as well. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any Indians (head- feathered or head-dotted) for that matter. Hmmm….

Maybe we should adopt an affirmative action Oscars program. This would assure that in addition to the shows that already suck, we can have a percentage of diversified suckdom thrown in to make the displeasure of watching the Academy Awards more interesting.

The Academy Awards is for suckers. As for the non-nominated nominees; any occupation that craves and demands so much adulation and adoration in addition to their pay, only proves to me that their love for their craft isn’t really love at all.
