WEDNESDAY - January 7, 2015
 
Greetings for the New Year from the Cold Jingoistic Fossil Fuel Burning Firearms Owning Fed Up With Politics West Texans.
 
As you probably noticed, I have not been on line for a while.  My computer quit on me on about December 28th and I did not get it back until a few days ago.  I have been going through stuff and deleting a whole bunch of photos and videos in order to make room for new stuff this year.
 
OBSERVATIONS:
 
Of course my observations are generally made from a very CONSERVATIVE view and many might no be shared by a great many folks.
 
I have, however, observed that the present occupant of the White House has continued to lie and violate his oath of office on a regular basis.   We have heard him make statements and then within a few days completely deny making those statements.   We have also observed that his cabinet and appointees have not fallen far behind him in the area of being untruthful to the American People.
 
We have observed the House of Representatives pass legislation only to have it blocked by Harry Reid in the U.S. Senate.  We have further observed that the mainstream media AND the Obama Administration lay the blame completely on the U.S. House of Representatives.   AND, while I  do not have a very high regard for House Speaker John Boehner,  the lion's share of the blame for lack of meaningful legislation must lie squarely on the shoulders of Barack Hussein Obama and the then Democrat controlled U.S. Senate.
 
We have observed the Justice Department under the direction of Eric Holder take sides in local matters in which they had no federal concern.  HOWEVER, under the guidance of Race Pimps like Al Sharpton, the federal government has attempted to make racial, civil rights issues where NONE  EXIST.
 
We have been told, ever since Barack Hussein Obama was elected that we were to be living in a "Post Racial Era".  HOWEVER, it appears to me as if Obama and his band of merry men/women have made sure that racial divisions have increased just as they have attempted, and in many cases succeeded, to divide the American People by economic status,   educational background,   and  regional places of residence as well as to increase racial tensions.  This latest attempt to make ALL members of law enforcement a party to racial prejudice  is just one example.   As a career Police Officer, I will freely admit that I knew many black people whom I did not like at all;  I also  knew many Hispanic people whom I did not like at all;   I knew  some Asian people whom I did not like at all;   BUT  I probably knew at least as many Caucasian people for who I had absolutely no use.   Just because there were people from many different racial  and ethnic backgrounds that I did not care for in the least, that does not make me a racist nor did it influence my decisions when dealing with people from different backgrounds and social status.
 
When I see a group of protesters storming into a public building chanting:

"Hands Up, Don't Shoot"
or
"I Can't Breathe"
or, my personal favorite
"What Do We Want?  Dead Cops.  When Do We Want Them?  NOW."
 
And many of these protests were in San Francisco, CA;   Oakland,  CA;   Portland,  OR;  and several other large metropolitan areas.
 
Then we observe some real Race Hustling Pimps claiming that  these are PEACEFUL  DEMONSTRATIONS and are a right guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.
 
I am sure that I have a somewhat slanted view on things but:  WHEN  YOUR  PEACEFUL  DEMONSTRATION  CAUSES ME TO:
 
1)  Deviate from my desired course
2)  Causes me to stop doing something that I want to do
3)  Causes me to do something which I have no desire to do
4)  Creates any problems for me or anyone else
 
THEN  YOUR  DEMONSTRATION  IS  NOT  PEACEFUL,  NOR  IS  IT  PROTECTED  BY  THE  CONSTITUTION.  IT  IS  PURELY AND SIMPLY A  NUISANCE!  AND  WHILE  THIS  MAY  COME AS  A  SURPRISE  TO  MANY,  IN MANY INSTANCES, BEING A NUISANCE  CARRIES WITH IT..... DARE  I  SAY  IT?   CONSEQUENCES! 
 
So, our "Post Racial President" is really not any different from AL  SHARPTON,  JESSE  JACKSON, and all the rest of the Race Hustling  Pimps.
 
BUT, I fear that we are in for at least two more years of this act UNLESS the newly Republican Controlled House and Senate show some balls and begin to take back control of their respective areas and be more concerned with doing what is right than what is popular with the crowd inside the beltway.
 
SUGGESTIONS:
 
The first suggestion I have is directed to the newly elected U.S. Representatives and U.S.  Senators.   I would point out that:
 
1)   YOU  WERE  NOT  ELECTED  BECAUSE  THE  AMERICAN  PEOPLE  WERE  HAPPY  WITH THE  DIRECTION  OUR COUNTRY  WAS HEADED.
2)   YOU  WERE  NOT  ELECTED  TO  FOLD  AND  COMPROMISE  WITH  THE  DEMOCRATS/PROGRESSIVES/SOCIALISTS.
3)   YOU  WERE  NOT  ELECTED  TO CARRY  ON   LEGISLATIVE  BUSINESS  AS  USUAL.
4)   YOU   WERE NOT ELECTED  TO  GET  A GOOD GRADE IN -"WORKS AND PLAYS  WELL  WITH OTHERS".
5)   YOU   WERE  ELECTED  TO  OPPOSE  BARACK  HUSSEIN  OBAMA'S  POLICIES  AND OVERRIDE THEM WHEN POSSIBLE!
 
It is time for the American People to hold their elected officials accountable  for their actions AND if they do not perform as needed....REPLACE  THEM!
 
It is time for  Conservatives and Republicans who try to pass themselves  off as Conservatives to STOP  ACTING  LIKE  DEMOCRATS/PROGRESSIVES/SOCIALISTS.
 
It is time for the Republican Party ON  THE  NATIONAL  LEVEL to NOT  ALLOW  THE  MAINSTREAM  MEDIA  TO  PICK  THEIR  PRESIDENTIAL  CANDIDATE  FOR  2016.  As most of us know, they gave us John McCain and Mitt Romney who both got trounced by Barack Hussein Obama.  And if they continue to go down that road, we can prepare for EIGHT  YEARS   OF  HILLARY  CLINTON.  Personally, I had rather be pecked to death by a duck than endure eight years of this screeching heifer. (And perhaps I should apologize to heifers nationwide)

QUOTES:
 
"What matters today is how well you can concoct a story that fits people's preconceptions and arouses their emotions.  Politicians like New York mayor Bill de Blasio, professional demagogues like Al Sharpton and innumerable irresponsible people in the media have shown that they have great talent in promoting a lynch mob atmosphere toward the police....... Grand juries that examine hard facts live in a different world from mobs who listen to rhetoric and politicians who cater to the mobs.".... THOMAS  SOWELL
 
"The death of Eric Garner has likewise spawned stories having little relationship to facts.  The story is that Garner died because a chokehold stopped his breathing.  But Garner did not die with a policeman choking him..... He died later, in an ambulance where his heart stopped.  He had a long medical history of various diseases, as well as a long criminal history.  No doubt the stress of his capture did not do him any good, and he might well still be alive if he had not resisted arrest.  But that was his choice."........... THOMAS  SOWELL
 
"If you are killed by an unarmed man, you are just as dead as if you had been annihilated by a  nuclear bomb.  But you don't even know who is armed or unarmed until after it is all over, and you can search him."..........  THOMAS  SOWELL
 
"The media do not merely ignore facts, they suppress facts.  Millions of people saw the videotape of the beating of Rodney King.  But they saw only a fraction of that tape because the media left out the rest, which showed Rodney King -- another huge man -- resisting arrest and refusing to be handcuffed, so that he could be searched."....... THOMAS  SOWELL
 
 
 "An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!.... Sir, we are not weak if we make  a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power....  Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone.   There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us....   Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God.  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."..... PATRICK  HENRY

MORE STUFF:
 
Last week I was watching one of the sports channels and they had one program on in which it had Peyton Manning wired for sound over a period of several games against various teams.  I have always liked Peyton Manning and thought he showed a lot of class in various interviews and the way he carried himself both on and off the field.  My opinion was reinforced after watching this program.  Peyton Manning is a team player and when he screws up, he admits it and accepts blame rather than trying to shift it off on someone else.  In one clip he got sacked, big time, by J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans.  As Manning was getting up off the ground he turned to Watt and said, "Man, you got me good that time".  When he got to the sidelines he told his coach, "That J.J. Watt only has one speed ... wide open."   Then a little later they had a film on the football career of Doug Flutie.  Of course, Flutie was something like 5'9" and many of the so called experts said he was TOO SHORT to make it in the NFL.  His first season or so he did not do all that good so he went to Canada and won several CFL Championships, with Toronto, I believe.  Then he returned to the NFL and played with several teams and did well with all of them.  In addition, he and his wife were raising their son who suffers from autism.   Doug Flutie is a first class man and just like Peyton Manning was a pure team player.  Anyway it was pleasant to see great players who were not acting like they had performed a miracle when they scored.  I guess the most emotion I saw from Doug Flutie was on his very last play as a New England Patriot.  He drop-kicked an extra point which has not been seen in decades.   Anyway,  Peyton Manning and Doug Flutie are definite role models.
---------------------------------
One of the sports channels also showed a program reviewing the football careers of Gayle Sayers and Dick Butkus.  Of course they were team mates with the Chicago Bears and were both drafted one after the other in the draft for their rookie seasons.  Anyone who ever saw Butkus and Sayers play will certainly appreciate their careers.  Of course both of them played during the years when the rules were much different and Butkus had both his knees ruined but still played on bad legs for several years.  Sayers got a knee injury in either his third or fourth season and was lost for most of the year.  BUT, the year he returned, he rushed for over 1,000 yards and his longest run of that season was 23 yards. Both Sayers and Butkus were tough as nails.  Sayers said that in practice they went full speed.  He said that Coach George Halas told him not to let up or Butkus would knock his ass off.... and he was right.  Sayers only played for six years but was voted into the NFL Hall of Fame on his first year of eligibility.
-------------------------------
I watched a news program last night and saw where a retired New York City Police Officer had his concealed carry handgun confiscated  by the Sheriff's Department.  Evidently this man had gone to the hospital emergency room because he was suffering from..... now get ready for this...... INSOMNIA. For those of you currently residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that means he was having problems sleeping.  Evidently in the State of New York if you seek medical help your medical records are sent to various outlets.  But this man had problems falling asleep.   I know a number of people who have that same problem.  But evidently in New York, it is considered some type of mental disorder which prohibits you from owning a handgun, at least that was what was reported.
 
BUT, I don't know why this should surprise any of us.  New York City has a Mayor who has seen fit by passing an executive decisions that the NYPD Officers can no longer do a pat down search for weapons, which incidentally allowed by the U.S. Supreme Court.  Small wonder that Bill de Blasio  is on the VARMINT  LIST.
-----------------------------------
 
Anyway it is good to have my computer back and I am glad that the New Year is here.  I just hope it is an improvement over 2014.  AND, incidentally,  I have NO  PROBLEMS  at all in falling asleep.
 
GOOD GUYS:
