I recently heard a Black conservative candidate on television say his platform focuses on the three Cs - Capitalism, Christianity, and the Constitution.
I like that platform, and believe if more politicians adopted one like it, we’d be much better off.
The radical left of the Democratic Party continues to push President Biden and the Democrat majorities in the Congress and Senate into growing an even bigger government that determines what’s good for us individually, for our families, and for our businesses.
The price of gasoline is through the roof because we are no longer energy independent. Biden continues to blame Vladimir Putin and the pandemic, and that is so stupid it’s hard to believe some people actually believe what comes out of the man’s mouth.
The far left is forcing green energy on everyone, at the expense of fossil fuels, and the naivety shows at every corner.
Not one of the elite is going to be flying in a solar-paneled airplane, and we will end up buying everything needed for EVs (electric vehicles) from countries that don’t like us much.
All you’ll hear in big liberal media is how wonderful green energy is. You will never hear about how little the trillions of dollars the far left wants us to spend to “save our planet” will actually help, or hear rational, in-depth discussion about the consequences of forcing green energy on people who have yet to choose that option in the free market.
The Federal government, of course, has its role in regulation, but the increasing regulation in our lives will eventually end our country, as we know it, unless those who know doing away with fossil fuels and capitalism take a firm stand. Ending capitalism, which has produced the greatest achievements in history, and replacing all things fossil fuel with something else, will hurt everyone except for the elite few. This is the end game in the far left’s socialist agenda.
It is mind-boggling that anyone thinks someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), the female Congressman with the brains of a small walnut, can make a rational long-term decision, and actually weigh the consequences of those decisions.
Twenty or so years ago - before being “woke”, dissing our country for an imperfect past, focusing on pronoun use to make one not feel marginalized, and telling God he screwed up when He decided to just make a man and a woman - those like Ocasio-Cortez would be shunned in public.
Today, with the support of a woke corporate America, a censoring big tech, and the liberal media, the AOCs of the world have a magnified voice, in multiples much greater than their actual following.
The swamp is real, and burying one’s head in the sand will not make that statement untrue.
Our pharmaceuticals are coming from other countries, as well, and we have become too dependent, for way too many things, on countries that don’t much like us.
Our leaders don’t have backbones. Biden is mentally not in the game, and can barely stay awake. Our leaders find it easier to apologize to the world, and then beg to be a player in a world we had a huge hand in saving (i.e. – think about WWII’s outcome being different).
A One World Order, in what only a minute portion of the world’s population will benefit, is what these fools want. That’s why the powers that be are afraid to call out China for unleashing a killer virus, or will show concern for other countries’ sovereignty, while at the same time opening the spigot at our southern border.
As far as Christianity is concerned, this is my fundamental belief. All Christians are sinners, but all sinners aren’t Christian.
I hold nothing against any other belief systems, but when the foundation on which our country was built is whittled away by extreme minority voices and radical religions, something is wrong.
I will be the first person to admit I fall far short from being a saint, but I do believe in God’s grace, and thank him every day for granting me the things I don’t deserve, and not handing me the consequences I do deserve.
If you think you’re better than me, or any other person, I’m happy for you. Put on your angel wings and tell everyone how good you are.
The pandemic showed, without a doubt, where our leaders now place an individual’s faith. The closing of churches, as places that weren’t important, but allowing big box stores to continue operating, as long as everyone wore a mask, is proof of that assertion.
This past weekend my wife and I flew to Dallas to take care of three of our six grandchildren while their parents went on a trip.
I had to search for a mask because I haven’t worn one for so long. Yet, our government still wants to control us a little bit longer. It’s time to end the requirement to wear a mask on a plane. If you want to wear one, wear one, but two-plus years after the China virus was unleashed, it’s time to put an end to all the government over-reach.
Both of our Uber drivers told us we didn’t have to wear our masks. One of them didn’t wear his. It was only 18 short months ago that I was turned into the Uber police in Las Vegas for not properly wearing my mask over my nose and mouth for the entirety of the trip!
I don’t know if I’ve shared this in this space before, but I’m ready for the second coming. I might be the first one whining at the verdict in my trial, but at least the perfect judge will be determining my sentence.
As far as the Constitution goes, all one has to do is listen to the arguments during nomination hearings for Supreme Court justices, or look with open eyes at the unequal justice carried out in this country – Can you say Hillary Clinton or Hunter Biden? If those who burned down parts of cities and looted businesses at will are allowed to go free, and the Jan. 6 “insurrectionists” still remain in jail, something is seriously wrong. Why aren’t all the videos of that day released?
Our Freedom of Speech is attacked at every corner, and the right to bear arms is attacked with false narratives on a daily basis.
Using the left’s logic, Putin’s missiles, not Putin himself, should be blamed for the indiscriminate killing of civilians in Ukraine.
Imagine if we had a country with minimal, but tough regulations, a strong military, secure borders, and public servants who didn’t leave office as multi-millionaires?
Imagine if all the waste in the federal government - which every single person in this country, regardless of sex, race or political affiliation, knows is very real – was illuminated overnight?
Heck, we could provide free medical care to all with all the savings!
Energy independence, a strong military, capitalism operating with sane regulations, secure borders, and a return to the support of traditional family units sitting around the dinner table, and worshipping together, wherever, is the answer.
Unfortunately, we are so damn selfish, self-centered, and materialistic these days I doubt we can make such a change.
Oh well, it was good while it lasted.
Woo ài ni (that’s I love you in Chinese).
Until next week, have a good week!
