IT’S A BIG WORLD
SOMEONE HAS TO MOVE IT.
We all have friends and relatives that reside on the far left end of the political spectrum. Talking to them is hard, almost impossible. Facts, reason, and logic hold no sway. It is all about emotion. I feel for them. I see them in the streets calling for violence, wearing ridiculous hats and costumes making them look like body parts best not seen in public. They cannot accept loss because they have never had to accept it before. They have been sheltered by the false beliefs of their superiority.
So, instead of writing to a specific far left progressive liberal after seeing their Facebook post, I decided to write an open letter to all of them. Please feel free to forward.
I was under the impression that when we discussed ‘fake news’ and how we should refrain from posting it that you were going to include yourself in the group that should refrain from posting fake news.
Through all your postings you have yet to point to anything that President Trump has done that is outside of what he promised that he would do. These pledges garnered him well over the number of Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency, as described in the US Constitution. I only mention this, so you will not have to waste time with the popular vote fallacy, and I will not have to spend time with the number of illegal aliens that voted in California, and in other states, as proved by the recount you and Jill Stein demanded.

Mr. Trump Goes to Washington
Last night, the Sun set around 6:20 PM EST and rose less than 3 hours later, shortly after 9:00 PM EST. It was Morning again in America. “It’s Morning again in America,” is a phrase that was first used in an ad by Ronald Reagan in 1984. Last night it was a feeling invoked by President Donald J. Trump.
In his first address to Congress, the President was nothing if not presidential. Something, they said he could not be. Once again, Trump has proven them wrong. (more…)
Using Flint to Spark an Idea
How much lead is a bad thing? According to the EPA, five parts per billion is “cause for concern.” Meaning that in a billion molecules of water, if 5 of them are lead you have a problem. In Flint, Michigan that number rose to a frightening 27 parts per billion. Flint’s water was deemed undrinkable. So, what does this have to do with immigration? Trust me, as always, I’ll get there.
As we just celebrated School Choice Week, which included stalling on approving Betsy DeVos to run the Dept. of Education, I figured that I should chime in. Now to some of you, part of this will be something you have read before as it is something that I posted on Facebook many months ago. For those of you who did not see it, this will be brand spankin’ new.
Education is one of those hot-button topics. Everyone has an opinion about it. I have many. (more…)
Taking the Oath of Office
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”– Oath of Office, US Constitution, Article II, section 1, paragraph 8.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. –Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence.
Today is Inauguration Day, and Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office as our 45th president. It is a ceremony that signifies a peaceful transition of power not available to the 90% of the rest of the planet. (more…)
