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

27 Mar

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.
