As I see it Trump is something of an invention of the Democratic Party. So I don’t entirely agree with this post, but for the most part I do.

Deo Vindice

Trump became Trumpenstein and he's alive - and President-elect. Trump became Trumpenstein and he’s alive – and President-elect.

The Establishment Republicans in Congress created this ‘yuge’ political creature – Trumpenstein. They opposed him during the election and are sucking up to him now in public. But, they created him by betraying the voters who gave them the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014. These career politicians didn’t do their duty and use their Constitutional powers. They were too cowardly to use the power of the purse, impeachment, approval of appointments and administrative oversight – with very few exceptions. The Establishment Republicans created such an anger and frustration that 13 million voted for a newly manufactured man, this Trumpenstein, in the Republican primaries. About 7 million voted for the Congressional standout exception – Ted Cruz.

I supported Cruz against Donald Trump – the candidate.

I was a hair’s breadth away from becoming a Never Trumper.  But then, I…

Fake News on the Internet? I’m Shocked!

Please read Tricia’s post. She provides an interesting take on the “fake news” problem we have in this country and lots of good references too!

I especially enjoyed the link to the “Gender Wage Gap myth”. I did not believe gender gap exists, but I had trouble stating a good case against it. So I was delighted to read Carrie Lukas’ article at Forbes Magazine.

Consider. I have two daughters, and I want them treated fairly. I also have two son-in-laws, and I want them treated fairly too. When the mainstream news media puts out utter nonsense designed to pit us against each other, that doesn’t help anybody except the demagogues they support. In fact, pitting men and women against each other hurts families, especially children. So it is a despicable thing to do.

Freedom Through Empowerment

Apparently, we have a “fake news” problem in this country, where stories loaded with false information spread ignorance like wildfire all over the Internet.  Some think this may even have cost Hillary Clinton the election and while I believe this fear to be inaccurate and overblown, I do say welcome to the party!

Some of us have been complaining, ahem, for years that biased, fear mongering is poisoning the electorate’s ability to make rational, educated decisions. The difference being this type of nonsense comes straight from the mainstream media and is masked as “hard news”, while the recent election oriented faux websites pushed outrageous headlines for clickbait a la National Enquire like sensationalism.

Discerning voters could smell a rat and I highly doubt many, if any votes where changed because of this. The left has only just now jumped on board the outrage train because well, oops, it turns out the…

Ah, my little Russian fiends…

The Democratic Party just now discovered Putin is not a nice man? Wonder how they ever got a clue?

For my readers: Check out insanitybytes22’s “theory” and share a good laugh with her. Then let your elected officials know what you think about the electoral college.

If we don’t want the rest of our country to look like an inter-city neighborhood, then we need to stop crooked politicians from making an even bigger mess out of our Constitution. See =>

See, there's this thing called biology...

I’m actually getting a bit frightened here, my own fault entirely, because I sat down and actually consumed some news. I should have watched something PG like “Frozen,” but those characters tend to annoy me in an entirely different way.

For those who have not been watching the news, the narrative is simple, the Russians did it. What did they do? Pretty much everything. If anything has gone wrong in your life, it’s probably because you have a little Russian troll following you around. I would suggest rubbing his fuzzy little head and asking him to go bring you a bucket of gold from the end of the rainbow, but that is just me.

Actually, I am not frightened by the little fuzzy heads, it is actually our own alphabet people who are scaring me, the lettered ones, CIA, FBI, NSA, the Men in Black. Like,  where is my safe…

Photo of the Week: December 14, 2016

Something to think about as the temperature sinks and slumps and plunges and plummets and falls and decreases and declines and dips and descends and drops and dives …….

For many of us this is a frigid week or record low temps. As we check into flights to Australia, here’s a little inspiration from tropical shores…
