The “OK” Symbol

download (2)Every time the @DNC   and the looney Left goes, well, looney over a new word or symbol being coopted by neo-Nazis or some fringe lunatic racist group, they give those groups power. How are they so ignorant that they do not understand this?

People have been using the OK symbol since I was a child.

People have been playing the “Circle Game” and beating hell out of each other since I was a kid.

At least.

For about a decade now, people have been using that same hand signal when they make a three point shot in basketball.

Suddenly the Lunatic Left sees half a dozen morons in neo-Nazi uniforms using that same symbol/signal and it is now super duper officially a neo-Nazi, White Power signal.

These same Leftist ignore the extensive use of this symbol when Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama Joe Biden and any other Leftist Socialist minion uses it BUT go off road insane when anyone else uses it.

The Left doesn’t seem to understand that they lend these meaningless groups power when they assign THEIR meaning to symbols.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,  Nancy Pelosi and their minions at MSNBC and CNN give these groups more power and legitimacy than they could have ever hoped to have every time they reference them and give power to their usage of language.

It’s time to get these morons out of Washington and out of the Media. These people empower the fringe racists and bigots whom they pretend to oppose. I firmly believe that Nancy Pelosi, AOC and the Democratic Party wish to legitimize these fringe groups so that they can say; “See, I told you so.”

The Left is a sick group of people who need therapy.

Getting a 90 Day Thai Tourist VISA in Phnom Penh

download (5).jpeg

I arrived in Thailand. Spent a month not doing much but chilling and enjoying some overdue time off from contracting overseas. After 30 days, it was time to do a VISA run. I decided on Phnom Penh.

It had been five years since I’d done a VISA run from Thailand. So I decided to do it in Phnom Penh. I decided on Phnom Penh primarily because I’m familiar with the city. I’ve been there about 50 times over the past 15 years. It’s a fun city that still isn’t too commercialized or Westernized. I value that above all things. I don’t come to Southeast Asia to experience the West or hyper-commercialized experiences. I like it the way it is…or was. The West and China are screwing up Cambodia as much as they’ve screwed up anything that they’ve touched. It’s just a slower process in Cambodia because everyone is so laid back. There’s not hurry in the land of the Khmers and, in my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with that.

I arrived in Phnom Penh expecting to give my passport to A2Z Tourism in the morning and receive my new VISA in my passport that evening.

Yeah, that didn’t happen.

It’s no longer possible to have a runner or a tourist shop turn in your VISA application. You have to do it yourself. You have to physically journey tot he Royal Thai Embassy, turn in your VISA application packet and retrieve your passport. You have to do it.

And…it’s not as difficult as it sounds. At least, it wasn’t for me.

After I contacted A2Z and was informed that they could no longer provide the VISA service for me, I did a bit of research. I read horror story after horror story. People being denied VISAs. People being turned back at the window at the Thai embassy for not having proper documentation. Story after story of people complaining about the experience and their documentation not being accepted. Folks being denied VISAs for abusing the tourist VISA system.

I was stressed. STRESSED. I thought for certain that I was going to be stuck in Phnom Penh and not able to get back to Thailand.

But that didn’t happen.

Turns out, the process was pretty simple and straight forward even if the Thai Embassy VISA page is a bit ambiguous.

The ambiguity, I’ll explain later.

According to the Thai Embassy webpage, one needs to show up between 0830 and 1200 Sunday through Saturday to turn in one’s VISA application and associated documentation.

The documentation consists of the following:

  • 1.      Visa Application form(s) and photograph(s): Completed and signed Visa Application form and recent photograph(s) (size 3.5×4.5 cm).2.      Passport (valid for no less than 6 months)3.      A copy of passport or travel document4.      Travel tickets out of Thailand5.      Evidence of adequate finance $1,000 per person or $2,000 per family or equivalent another currency.

    6.      Other documents: as may be requested by Consular officers in addition to the documents above. Please note that Consular officers reserve the right to require additional documents, or an interview with the applicant, as deemed necessary, without prior notice.

You show up with the documentation and the fee. Give it to the guy at the window. He checks your documentation. If all is good, he gives you back your documentation along with a number and sends you inside the embassy for processing.

They did not require an interview of any Western European or American who were  there that day. They did require interviews of the Khmer, the Arab and the Afghan who were seeking a VISA that day. The Afghan was rejected.

You go inside the building and the waiting room is right there. You wait for your number to be called. The person at the service window checks your documentation again. If it’s straight, she asks you for the fee, processes your package, gives you a receipt and tells you to come back at 1330 three days later with the receipt.

That is it.

The only way to be expedited is to have a doctor’s note. That is as of this moment. This may change. They will only approve single entry unless you are employed in Cambodia. you’ll need proof.

The fee was 40 USD. I gave them a 100 dollar bill. The woman at the window gave me 60 bucks change. No problem.

After that, you go back to your hotel and spend the next three days doing whatever you want to do.

Three days later, you show up with your receipt at 1330. They hand you your passport with VISA and you go on your way.  The three days does not include weekends or Thai and Khmer holidays. Check the calendar for holidays before you go.

Seems pretty straight forward. Yeah?
joe snuffy


Those are all of the documents that you need.

Now, to the ambiguity mentioned earlier. The Thai Embassy VISA page does not specifically state that one should bring a bank statement as proof of financial means. 20,000Baht is about 700 USD. I had 1,000 dollars on me. I took a stack of 100 dollar bills with me. That seemed to me to satisfy the requirement. They want proof that I have 700 bucks. I took a stack of Benjamins. Yeah, that didn’t work.

The Thai Embassy webpage doesn’t mention having a copy of the Passport data page either. I didn’t have one.

Luckily for me. The guy at the window was extremely helpful…and patient.

He allowed me to email him copies of my bank statement and my passport data page. He printed them out for me and included them in my package.

Once I had all of the documentation, I was sent inside with the number ticket.

For me, the process was easy. I did note that all of the non-Westerners had to interview. Everyone was nice or, at least, professional. I had no issues and they were helpful. If you are not a Westerner, you should contact the embassy before you go and plan on, at least, a month long process. It may go quicker for you. It may not.

I would estimate that 90% of Khmer moto taxi, tuk tuk drivers and cab drivers know where the Thai Embassy is located in Phnom Penh.

That’s pretty much it.

Black People and Bigotry

I have a unique perspective on this subject. I’m a White American who has both traveled widely in the world and who has a large number of Black friends from all over the world.

I have Black friends who are Muslim. Some who are Christian (obviously). Quite a few who are from outside of the United States.

One friend of mine is from Nigeria and an American Citizen. He’s a former United States Army Officer. He left the US Army as a Captain. Another friend who is Black is a retired Army Major. Yet another is a retired Army Command Sergeant Major. I’ve worked for two Black gentlemen who were retired Army Colonels. I’m hard on my supervisors. I rate them on a curve. What I call the Shit Curve. Most supervisors whom I’ve had have been horrible. These two Gents were superior in all facets in my experience. One was a Tanker Battalion Commander. The other was an Infantry Brigade Commander before he was retired short of his Star. Dude should have had that Star in my opinion. The Army missed out on a GREAT leader in letting McKenzie Collins get away.

I could keep this list going forever it seems. For every guy I’ve listed here, I have ten more whom I could use as examples.

I also have a few “bad apples” as friends who are the reason that the guys listed above get such short shrift in the reputation category.

I have traveled widely outside of America with some of these guys. In doing so, I’ve had occasion to see how they are treated.

I’ll say this beforehand. There are quite a few Africans and Black Americans who get into quite a bit of trouble in America and out in the wider world.  Yet, I know quite a few White Americans and Europeans who get in the same kind of trouble.

White people, on whole, get the benefit of the doubt.

Black people do not. Period.

Black people are judged by the lowest common denominator of their “race’ or skin color.

White people are judged, more often, by the best of us.

I remember being in Germany and walking into a club. Thinking that it was nice, I went back to another club to grab some friends. One of whom was Black. We went back to the aforementioned club and, suddenly, we could not gain entry. So we left.

The next night, I went back to that club. The door security apologized to me and said, “Sorry about last night. We don’t let Black people in.” He didn’t say “Black people, though.” I told them that they were wrong for that attitude and left.

This was Germany in the ’90s. As Racist as you’d associate with the Jim Crow South.

Every White person knows a few or a lot of really messed up White people. Yet, they don’t judge all White people by these folks. Yet, it isn’t that difficult to find White folks who judge all Black people by the worst of their number.

I’ve had similar experiences all over the world.

In Afghanistan, I had an Afghan Colonel tell me that he didn’t like Obama’s cousins meaning Black people. He didn’t like it when he was advised by Black people. Occasionally, he respected a Black advisor. More often than not, he ignored them.   I tried to tell him that this was a substandard attitude. I also reported his statement to my chain of command. Yet, the attitude was fairly prevalent amongst Afghans. The people for whom I worked listened to me and told me to drive on. Nothing happened because there was really nothing that we could do. We were there to advise them not to change their entire culture.

In the Arab world, Black people are treated as second class citizens. Usually, once they realize you are American, Canadian or British, that attitude changes.

In Southeast Asia, I’ve seen Black people treated like they are drug dealers even when it is obvious that they are just tourists. I cringe every time I see it happen. And I have. Not too far from my house is a bar where marijuana is regularly sold and used. Police rarely bother anyone there or on the street near the bar. However, the only people whom I have seen the Police harass have been Black people.

In America, Black peopleare automatically treated differently by Law Enforcement. Police interact with the average Black American as if they are a possible criminal. White people are afforded more respect and dignity automatically. These are defaults.

This is universal in the world in my experience. If you’ve never hung out with a Black person in public, you’ve probably never experienced this. It’s galling. To have a person treated as if they are less than or, worse, a criminal simply because of the color of their skin is a wretched thing to experience. I can only imagine how it feels to that person as it feels horrible enough to me as a bystander who is only vicariously affected by it. I can walk away and not be affected. I’m always White and will almost always be treated with default dignity because of this fact.

Yet, it is a misnomer to call the treatment of White people some kind of privilege. Is it a privilege to be treated with decency and dignity? Is it a privilege to have one’s rights respected? Is it a privilege to be treated innocent until proven guilty?

No. None of these are privileges. These are basic and universal rights.

White people aren’t privileged. Black people aren’t under privileged.

Not having one’s rights violated is not a privilege. It is basic human decency. It is the least that should be expected in America.

Having one’s rights disregarded or worse being brutalized simply because one is Black (or poor) is not being under privileged. It is a collapse of human decency and it is a failure of the system.

Police and other government agents should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for violating the rights of Citizens. The problem and the reason that they are not is the legal standard called “qualified immunity”. As long as this evil construct is in effect and the public servant is held above the law via qualified immunity, no real or measurable progress towards justice is possible.

And justice is the end goal here.

The term White privilege does not good for anyone. It is not a privilege to be treated with respect and dignity. This should be the default.

The Transgender [un]Civil War of 2020

2020 will be the year.

The 2020 Olympics will be the first international event that brings Transsexual Women into the living rooms of billions of humans.

Men who claim to be women dominating women in Olympic competition in sport after sport.

Men who claim to be women beating women out for Gold and Silver Medals in sport after sport.

Right now, the major media outlets are crushing all dissenting voices in this argument.

Those voices will be more difficult to oppress in 2020 when “women” who look like men start dominating women in every sport that matters. This is when the media and the Trans community bullying will be exposed for what it is.

The Progressive, or as I like to call them, Transgressive Left will not be able to silence billions of humans who will more than likely be a bit offended by these manly women crushing their daughters in sports for which those women have been fighting, striving and bleeding for years.

The truth will out.

Transwomen should not be allowed to compete against biological women. Transwomen are not biologically female. The Left will not be able to shout down billions of voices of dissent.

Or maybe they will.

Maybe humanity will yawn and not care.

I don’t think that will happen.

The Transgressive movement will be exposed. The Left will disintegrate.

Just in time for the 2020 Presidential Elections in the United States.

This should be fun.

The Transgressive Left is setting themselves up for one hell of a backlash in 2020.

The Thinking Man Abhors the State

“All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

~ H. L. Mencken, A Mencken Chrestomathy

Ana NavarroTells Black Americans…

You better get back on the Plantation.

Apparently Black Americans aren’t allowed to think for themselves.

Recent polling suggests that better than 30% of Black Americans may vote for Trump. That means, barring an impeachment Miracle for Democrats and Socialist Neo-Cons, Trump is all but guaranteed a second term in office.

No Republican has polled that high since the great migration during FDR’s tyrannical rule.

Democrats are running scared. What they have always feared may be coming to pass. Black Americans are rethinking their blind loyalty to the fear mongering Left.

The Leftist Coalition is falling apart…

Poverty Is and Shall Be Until Humans No Longer Exist

download (1)

This is a lie. Poverty cannot be eradicated.

#Poverty will never end. Poverty is the baseline of human existence. Humans are born into poverty. Humanity came into being in poverty. Everything outside of poverty must be created, earned, built. No human deserves poverty. No human deserves more than poverty. Poverty simply is. It cannot be eradicated anymore than breathing or the body’s need for H20 can be eradicated.

All humans are born into poverty. Familial wealth or lack thereof matters not. At any moment, an infant can be thrust out of familial affluence into the chaos that is human existence. Stark naked poverty is the essence of the human experience.

Poverty is as ineradicable as ignorance. Rome rose and became one of the greatest civilizations in history. Still there was poverty and ignorance within the Roman world. Rome fell and all that it was and all that it overcame was lost. A few lucky, opportunistic citizens of Rome escaped the chaos, poverty and ignorance that followed the fall of Rome. These persons and their families became the ruling classes of what followed Rome. Poverty and ignorance multiplied again.

Just as Rome fell, Western Civilization will fall. When it does, poverty and ignorance will again multiply and become dominant. This is the history of humanity. We build greatness. Then we find a way to undo ourselves. Usually our undoing is Liberalism or what some call Progressivism. The West is fading now. Poverty will not be eradicated. The fall of the West brought on by self hatred and denial of the cultural greatness that made the West possible will propagate poverty and its sister ignorance. The Left, as evidenced by what is happening in the large American cities and the State of California, is accomplishing the very opposite of their supposed goals.

Poverty can be temporarily alleviated or ameliorated. Yet, there will be no end to it until there is an end to us.

The only way to eliminate poverty is to eliminate humanity.

Thus there is no way to eradicate poverty. For if humanity does not exist, neither do our philosophies and ideologies.

Those who wish to rid the world of poverty have only one plan. To create the all powerful State. A State that powerful is a danger to all of humanity. A State that powerful is the end of humanity.

#1 Kentucky Goes down to unranked Evansville

75453509_2700673703286043_4041447565634306048_o

The Poster Child for the L to Evansville. Hagans can’t finish at the rim. Can’t make a lay up. Can’t dunk. He’s a below the rim player. He’s a microcosm of this team’s woes.

“Walter [McCarty] and their team deserved to win,” said Calipari opening the press conference. “If we would have somehow pulled it out, you know, it would have been, kind of wouldn’t even have been fair because they fought us the whole game and they were the tougher team. They executed, they made shots and threes and free throws. My hat’s off to them. It’s hard to do that in this building, but they were more ready to play. He had his team better prepared than I had my team.”

Shit happens.
Bite the bullet.
Move on.
Learn.
Grow & get that magical “toughness”.

They still live to play another 30 games or so.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If Cal doesn’t learn some new tricks, he’ll never make it back to the Final Four. He’ll have glam teams. He’ll make it to the Elite Eight. He’ll have lots of Lottery Picks. He’ll make a ton of money. And Kentucky Basketball won’t make it back to the Final Four.

I thought, foolishly, that this year Cal had picked up some new tricks. Hopefully, he has. May it be so.

If not, it’ll be at least a decade and a new coach before Kentucky Basketball sees another Final Four.

Untitled.002

Kentucky has some great players this year. Tyrese Maxey is pure GOLD! Immanuel Quickley is good enough to get to the NBA. Ashton Hagans reminds me of a timid Ramel Bradley. Overhyped and under-talented. The Cats will rebound and I firmly expect this team to be a High 2 to 3 Seed by the end of the year. There’s the possibility that Maxey and Sestina leads them to a to a 1 Seed. They’ll be good by the end of the year.

I still question Cal’s ability to make it back to the Final Four. His teams are beginning to be exceptionally high Tubby teams in that they are never complete and lack great shooters. You can play the greatest defense of the age but you still have to score the ball. Points on the board. Kentucky, right now, is scoring challenged.

Cal will get them turned around. He’ll tweak and he’ll fall short. But, he’s probably got another Lottery Pick in Tyrese Maxey.

This was a great lesson for all of us, including me. I mean, we could say they got outplayed and I could tell you I got out-coached.

Katie Hill’s Resignation Speech is Bunk!

20144540-7609835-image-m-271_1571936486624

I hunted down the photos. Gave them a gander. Cute goat, by the way.  I didn’t see anything that should be a HYUGE deal there. The cross is not a Nazi symbol that I can tell. The nudity is pretty PG rated to me. The text messages are….meh.

The only thing that she did “wrong” was her Matt Lauer-ish affair with the girl. If Democrats believe that a power imbalance means that consent can never be truly given, then Representative Katie Hill is “guilty of rape“. That is the Left’s philosophy. Katie Hill held power over the young girl. That was the only “mistake” or “bad decision”.

Hill is correct to resign because the Left should be treating her the same way that they treat Donald J. Trump# Judge Kavanaugh and other Male “power” figures. She is as guilty as they accuse those people of being. She’s actually guilty. She confessed to the “crime”. She confessed AFTER they were discovered, of course. This wasn’t a moment of honesty. It was coming clean only after discovery.

The Left always has a different standard for their own. Men such as Bill Clinton were repeatedly excused and their “crimes” covered up by the Left. Hill should have received similar treatment to Trump from the Left. Instead, she got the Hillary treatment. Her sins were washed away and she becomes the martyr. Hill did nothing. The Patriarchy did it. Misogyny did it. Hill is guilty. Katie Hill is immaculate having been washed in the blood of Gaia and the warm milk of a virgin transexual man.

It’s not surprising that Hill is being allowed to leave with very little Leftist gnashing of teeth and only half hearted trash talking by the GOP.

If anyone aside from Katie Hill is guilty here, it wis the Progressives Left. Men didn’t do this to her. Misogyny did not do this to her. The Patriarchy did not do this to her.  It wasn’t any of the boogie men that she’s throwing out there. Her own people did this to her. Nancy Pelosi and the Leftists decided that Hill was in the way and would be a distraction. Katie Hill was allowed to give her martyr’s speech as she was thrown to the curb with the rest of waste and refuse of the true powers in the Capital Beltway.

New Presidential Debate Format

download (3)

I have conceived a new Presidential Debate Format.

MSM moderators are forbidden from participating. That includes but is not limited to Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, TNN, HNN, Al Jazeera, RT, BBC. If one has appeared regularly in any Media Format to the American People, one is disqualified from serving on the Moderating Panel.

Each Moderator Panel should consist of the following:

1x Independent
1x Democrat
1x Republican
1x Libertarian
1x Green Party

That should be the moderator list for all Presidential debates including Party Primaries.

The Mods should be randomly selected from a pool of candidates who have been prescreened for education and knowledge of pertinent political, domestic and foreign policy issues

No question should be off the table.

Candidates are forbidden from refusing questions.

No questions about personal life are permitted.

No pandering to the voters. Candidates must prove their claims. If asked, for instance, “How will you pay for Medicare for All?”, the candidate must have a policy paper nailing costs down to the penny and show exactly how it will be financed. Candidates cannot present “pie in the sky” rhetoric. They must prove their contentions, allegations and theories on stage.

If candidates pander, they are dumped into a pool of molasses, dragged out and covered in feathers. They must then return to the stage for the remainder of the debate and be silent.

Moderators should get a “Dunce Horn” for candidates who fail to answer questions in a succinct, honest and straightforward manner. On the third Dunce Horn, the offending candidate should be dumped into a cauldron of boiling oil and then exiled to Baker Island for Ten Years to Life depending upon that night’s Independent Registered Voter Poll.

Truths Ta-Nehesi Coates and the 1619 Project Do Not Want You To Know

Untitled.001

See ta-nehisicoates.com for more lies and propaganda. The brilliant Dr. Coates can dissemble with the best of them.

I’ve personally never heard a credible case for reparations. Reparations for slavery is a scam. It is another example of the true goal of the Socialists and their divisive inclusivity. The American Left simply desires to vilify descendants in America of Western European origin and “Whiteness”.

I find it interesting that today’s racial activists have focused on the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Most of the Americas went untouched by England. The majority of slaves and the majority of the Americas was colonized by Spain. Somehow, these LatinX activists forget that the Spanish were the most heinous and brutal slave power in the Western Hemisphere. The Spanish committed genocide and murdered all who failed to adapt to Spanish culture and religion. This is why so many in Latin America are Catholic and why so many of the peoples of the Americas speak exclusively the Spanish language. Spain murdered the local cultures out of the locals leaving only the Spanish culture in place. Despite, this violence, Spain and “Latin-ness” escapes their condemnation of the LatinX activist community. They simply hate White people. Spain was so successful in destroying the African and the pre- Colonial Americas’ Indigenous people’s sense of self that most identify more with “Latin-ness” or being Spanish and speaking Spanish than they do with any identity that predated their ancestors enslavement. Yet, Latin American activists firmly believe that America, the United States, and England were the cause of all of their problems. To the Latin American, they’ve forgotten Spain existed. The White European, especially the English, are the great villain. If they were to stop and look inwards, they would come to understand that the Spanish culture which they celebrate is the great villain of their existence.

Yet, these activists, like Coates, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib  are not looking for truth. They need a villain. They must have a villain. They have chosen the White Man and “Whiteness”.

Without a villain, they can have no victims. Without victims, they cannot survive.

Until we stop creating victims, it’s gonna be really hard for America to survive.

If we do not stop creating victims and, instead, start empowering people, America will . not survive.

Reparations is just another victim scam of the Left. It’s another way for a few to enrich themselves from the many. It’s another way for lifetime “public servants” to continue to become multimillionaires.


Whilst the poor get poorer, the Public Servants get richer and richer.

Reparations: A Democratic Party Scam

When all of the tribes and kingdoms of Africa pay reparations to all of the ancestors of slaves whom they sold into slavery, I will consider thinking about the possibility of reparations.

If the supporters of this tax can trace the owners of slaves and the corporations which directly profited from slavery, I will support legislation creating a targeted reparations tax paid directly by those persons and their descendants who can be proven to be profiting from slavery or be in the possession of monies gained from slavery.

A general fund created from income taxes should never be considered. There is no proof that the general populace profited directly from slavery. That cannot be proven.

If it can be proven, show me that proof.

8cba12ef45601fa2b93468645e165e24

African captured by Africans in Africa to be sold East to the Arabs or West to the Europeans.

There is not one slave holder in my ancestry. Half of my family came to the United States in the 1880s. The other half was poor White folk who owned no slaves and was made destitute during the Great Depression. Before the Great Depression, they were merely poverty stricken. The only members of my family who fought and died during the American Civl War fought for the Union. My family paid all dues owed at that time and, yet, never owned slaves.

For what do I owe when it comes to enslavement of the African American. How am I more in debt to the ancestors of the enslaved African Americans than the Africans who originally sold them out of Africa?

How is the average American more indebted to the average African American than the original bondsmen in Africa who profited immensely and who still profit to this day?

10-facts-about-the-Arab-slave-trade-of-Africans-b

Arab Muslim Slavers transporting Africans east to Arabia.

No one can ever answer these questions. Instead, I get called a racist or tole that I have no empathy. Correct on that mark. I have no empathy for folks who just want “free” money stolen by the State from their fellow citizens.

Someone show me definitively how I, an uninvolved, non-affluent, White American am in debt to ancestors of slaves over 150 years after slavery ended at the cost of my ancestors lives when the Africans who enriched themselves by selling those ancestors in to slavery owe nothing.

If the answer involves “White Privilege”, the argument ends before it begins.

In the end, Reparations is naught but another leftist scam meant to keep African Americans on the Democratic Plantation. Same old Master. Same old Slaves.

American Lynchings & Bobby Rush

lynchings

Congressman Bobby L. Rush

Asian, Hispanic and White Americans were lynched in America as well as Black Americans.

That doesn’t matter. It only matters if one have the correct skin color. That seems racist to me. #Racism #InstitutionalRacism

No one knows the exact numbers of lynchings that occurred in the United States. However, it is estimated that there were around 6,000 between the end of slavery up until the 1960s. I’m not certain why the estimates always start AFTER the end of slavery but…they do. Not my decision. I would think that any extra-judicial killing in any era would be horrific. The Justice of the State is usually horrific and perverted enough. Mob justice…much more so. Such is the case if one is Black, White, Chinese, Christian, Muslim, Homosexual, Straight, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Tulsi Gabbard.

Of the lynchings that occurred in the US, around 60 percent of the victims were African Americans or Black Americans. The other roughly 40% were said to be White Americans. I’m certain these numbers are off, though, as they rarely take into account Asians and others who were in the US at that time.

Chinese were treated with rough “justice” during that timeframe. The lynch mob took after many a people in the West and there weren’t a whole lot of Black people in the area in that time frame as most Black Americans were living in the South up until the early to mid 20th Century. One could be hanged in the old West for being a horse thief or murder or, well, at the behest of any judge wishing to build a hard reputation. Most don’t count hangings at the hand of the Law as lynchings. Yet, I see the Law as more or less a lynching for anyone who isn’t wealthy.

Representative Bobby Rush doesn’t care about any of that, though. He certainly doesn’t care about any Chinese who were lynched in America. That doesn’t serve his purpose or his Masters. The only lynchings that matter to Bobby Rush or the Democratic Party are those of Black Americans. This helps their numbers. It keeps the primary victims down and out. It keeps the primary victims of the DNC in line. Towing that party line. Voting Democrat. That is all that matters. Bobby’s Democratic Masters certainly do not want you reading that the South was controlled by them when these lynchings were taking place. Please don’t remember that. Hillary, Bernie, Liz and Joe do not want you to remember the real history of the DNC.

America is odd in that we, so often, think in terms only of Black and White. We forget that there have been others in this Nation.

For instance, there have always been the Indians and Hispanics. How many of those folks were lynched in that same time period. Before and after…?

Yet, we pretend that lynching was some kind of Blacks only horror. I suppose it makes it easier to continue to make Black Americans feel the vicim. Victims are much easier to disempower, to disenfranchise and control. This is why the Democratic Party is forever telling Black Americans that they are victims.

To the Democratic Party, the Black American will always be a slave and the DNC will always be the Master.

Isn’t it odd that Bobby Rush just stated that all Black people look alike.

The Party of Bobby Rush was, in fact, in control of the South 1877 all the way up to the 1960s when all of those Black Americans were hanged by the neck in those lynchings. Again, just forget that.

Lynching, or Mob Justice, as it was called in that era was horrific for any of its victims. None more-so than the victims of the Mob who were innocent. We could take a lesson from this in our era of virtual lynchings where guilt is presumed regularly upon any accusation from a pre-approved political group or individual.

What is justice in America? Does Justice exist in America? It seems to me that the Lynch Mob still exists and is still a weapon of the Democratic Party.

Some things never change…

What Gets Trump My Vote in 2020

LEFTIST OUTRAGE about everything.

The utter lack of tolerance displayed by the Left.

The complete hypocrisy of the Left.

The hatred of the Left.

The Violence of the Left.

The State Worship by the Left.

#GunControl

The complete and utter disregard of the Constitution of the United States of America that the Left displays and acts upon.

The Racism and Bigotry of the Left disguised as compassion and empathy.

The fact that the Left cares more about ILLEGAL immigrants than Americans.

The disrespect of Leftists directed against minorities who don’t agree with them 100%.

I can’t stand Donald Trump even as I agree with many of his policies.

I didn’t vote for him in 2016.

Yet, I am seriously considering voting for him in 2020.

Why?

Because I hate the Progressive Left.  There is simply nothing progressive about them. They are hate personified.

Life is Suffering…and that’s not a bad thing.

I was watching this video of Jordan Peterson and it made me think about my life…again. Peterson is an extraordinary specimen of Homo Sapiens. This man gets it.

On gratitude for life and living. He is spot on.  Has my life always been a grand adventure. By no means, has it been. I grew up the child of an alcoholic. I was poor. I remember summers through which a decent meal was a miracle of giving. Father was a drunken fool out on a binge. Mother absconded with us to some secret location to avoid his violence. Extended family ignored us and were embarrassed by us. 

But we made do. We laughed and loved each other and lived. We survived.

In the end, by some divine intervention or just plain old perseverance, my four siblings and I grew into successful adults. Each of us have had our trials and tribulations. Each of us received guidance and assistance along the way. In the end, though, we’ve all had successes and have become as independent and productive as we could not have dreamed growing up with an abusive father.

I often tell people that I was held back 18 years in life. I didn’t come out of my childhood and grasp the reality that my life was of my own choosing until I was 30 years old. Part of that is that I joined the Army when I was 17. One abusive relationship to another. 

The Army didn’t know what to do with a kid like me so it shunted me aside. In time, though, I learned how to thrive in the Army system. A few years later, I outgrew the Army. It seemed to me that it held me back from something. Perhaps, I was right. Time will tell. I said my farewells to the Army and rejoined the rest of the world as a sovereign individual. 

I am grateful to the Army. I was allowed to grow up there…with some guidance. I was fortunate in that system. It can destroy many people like me. The shiftless person who is distrusting of authority. A combination of negligent leadership and good leadership pushed and pulled me along. 

After leaving the Army and joining the civilian world, I attended a bit of university. Both traditional and non-traditional. 

One day out of the blue, I was called by a representative of KBR and thus began my journey into the wider world. I was conscious of the world but, even though I’d traveled in the military, I never completely accepted that it was there. Yes, I’d traveled in the military. I’d been stationed in Germany, Egypt and Korea. I’d traveled to France, Panama, Israel,  and Jordan. I didn’t spend a great deal of thought on the rest of the planet, though. It was there. I’d probably die without seeing it.

After KBR hired me, I broadened my scope. Accidentally. at first. Then with purpose. I traveled to Thailand. Then all over Southeast Asia. Then China. Then the Middle East and other parts of Europe and the Mediterranean. 

After KBR, I joined other outfits. MPRI came first. Then Mantech, AECOM, Dyncorp and Raytheon. I was a clerk at first. Then I moved on to become an advisor working with various parts of the Afghan National Defense Force.

I met extraordinary people and witnessed extraordinary events. I felt danger closely. I was shot at and bombed and rocketed and mortared. I felt death first hand and heard it whisper my name. Yet, I do not fear death.

Why? Because I felt that I had lived and was grateful to have lived as I had for as long as I had. Death had no hold over me nor the fear of death.

That brings me back to Mr. Peterson. Yes, life is suffering. Yes, I had experienced suffering. I’ve also experienced joy, love, passion and exceptional pride in accomplishing something greater than myself.

I had help along the way. Yet, the major decisions and many minor had been mine. I chose to go. I chose to live. Others helped me along the way. Opportunities had been extended. I chose to take those opportunities and to succeed within the scope of those opportunities. No one forced me to do so. I did not allow fear to hold me back. I took chances in life and those chances paid off for me.

None of those opportunities or successes would have come my way had I not chose to take hard paths along the way. I would not be who I am had I not suffered along the way.

For all of that, I am extremely grateful.

Impeaching President Trump

75th Anniversary of D-Day, Portsmouth, UK - 05 Jun 2019
Impeaching Donald Trump results in one of two things:
 
1. He is successfully impeached, prosecuted and removed by the HoR and Senate respectively.
 
This guarantees that one of the nut jobs running on the Democratic Party ticket wins which dooms the country to insanity as we have never believed possible. Witch Hunts to make Colonial Salem blush. Leftist Agendas canceling every good thing that existed in America. A crash of the stock market so spectacular as to be theretofore unimaginable. People imprisoned for thought crimes and speech. The Bill of Rights not abolished but eradicated.
 
2. The idiots of the House fail to impeach or the Senate fails to prosecute and remove.
 
Trump is guaranteed #Election2020. God only knows what he’ll do in his second term.
 
I like some of what Trump has done.
 
I loathe the Left more than I am apprehensive of a second Trump term.
 
I prefer the 2nd scenario.
 
I’m not great fan of Trump but better him than any Democrat alive at this moment.

A Challenge to Leftists and Feminist

Trump stated truth:   If one is wealthy or famous that women will let a man do anything and gave as an example; “grab ’em by the pussy.”

There is no falsity in that statement. It is absolutely true.

Why do you ignore the truth? Does it intimidate you? Are you one of those women who allows famous and wealthy men to do as they please with you and the fact that the statement describes your innermost truth frightens you.

I know for a fact that women out there…some…not all…but millions will, in fact, allow wealthy and famous men to do as they will with them.

There are thousands of American women who travel to the Middle East (Dubai) for 25,000 and 50,000USD weekend. They are paid specifically to allow wealthy Arab men to do as they please. One item that is specifically part of that menu is anal sex for Muslims believe that anal sex is halal whereas vaginal sex is haram.

So, pls, tell me what in that statement by, then civilian, Donald Trump was false and what part of it offended you?

I’ll wait. You won’t dare answer truthfully for the truth is the last item on the Leftist Feminist agenda.

Trump’s exact words follow:


Trump:
 Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let youdo it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

(Emphasis Red/Bold/Italics are mine)

Nothing in that statement is false. Women will allow wealth and famous men (a Star) do anything. That is a true statement.
