ON MY SOAPBOX….Yes, Bring Our Troops Back Home


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

Good Day….

I could start off by being Politically Correct and overly concerned..but I will not. I am simply sick of the hypocritical, part time, possible Republicans, who “Sort of…stand by our President.” Well, who could I possibly be calling a hypocrite?

Three come to mind…Mitch McConnell, Kentucky’s Senior Senator & Senate Majority Leader, Mitt (excuse me while I puke)  Romney and Lindsey Graham, South Carolina’s Senior Senator. I thought since RINO Warmonger John McCain kicked the bucket, that Lindsey Graham would become more rational…but I guess not. He is still a war loving machine….WAR…it is like a card game to these idiots.

Do you find it incredibly disgusting that these three “Play Like” Republicans want our American troops to remain in battle in the expansive foreign deserts? Has 18 years not been long enough? Why do they insist on being a non- supporter of President Trump on this issue? He is already battling everyone in the world! Including Main Stream Media! In an election year! I am sick of watching these Part Time Republicans support the Democrat agenda.

These jerks need to take their children and grandchildren to the airport and hug and kiss them good-bye…knowing that it may be the last time you see them alive.

While I am here on my soapbox, I want to express my opinion on one other new fad of our day. Apologizing and Walking Back! I want to see people stand their ground and walk forward. I do not apologize for being White, American or Republican!

In fact, I am proud of being ALL THREE!

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ DISCOVERS THE GREATEST GENERATION – AND IT’S HERS

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continues to spit out preposterous and deeply untrue comments and opinions. She commits as many gaffes as uncle Joe Biden, but she doesn’t recognize it, even after the fact. Nor will the mainstream media report on her obvious misstatements as AOC is protected by virtue of being a woman of color.

Ocasio-Cortez recently averred that the Greatest Generation is, well her own: “ I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets. How about that? Like, previous generations have just assumed that government’s got it. Let me tell you something, you are the government. Like, as a democracy, we the people, as a voter, you are the government too.”

Like, let me tell you something, AOC: Like, I already knew that, in a democracy, people are part of the government, too. You probably haven’t heard of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, or perhaps even Lincoln himself, but it contains a line that reads in part: “That government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (Granted it would read and sound better if AOC had written and delivered it: “That, like the government of, like, the people, by, like, the people, like for the people, shall not, like, perish from the earth, like). Moreover, young people have been taking to the streets, for better or worse, for centuries now. AOC may have heard of the race riots and Vietnam War protests of the 60s, but probably is utterly ignorant of the Boston Tea Party or Lexington and Concord. It is true, however, that many millennials, at least those who aren’t still living in their mom’s and dad’s basements, have taken to the streets. And left their “dynamic” predecessors just risked their lives fighting in wars to win independence and protect our freedoms. Oh, and they built the cities in which millennials live, protest – and crap.

Most demonstrably do not take the time to read our history – or anyone’s else – and they sure as hell don’t understand it. And the fault is not all theirs. The crux of the problem is that no one is teaching them the true history of the nation and its founding, because they are too busy indoctrination them, molding them into crazed social justice warriors who, as Ronald Reagan once noted, “know so many things that just aren’t so.”

I am continually saddened when I talk to these “profound” and supposedly informed “dynamic” young people and it becomes clear they have no idea of the concept of natural law, the content of the Bill of Rights, the economic principles of Adam Smith, or that America banned the slave trade before Sweden, the Netherlands, Brazil, France, and Spain. Most couldn’t name the 13 colonies (the U.S. was colonized by the British) or name four of the first ten presidents. Many claim to be fond socialism, though they couldn’t point out Venezuela or North Korea on a map of the world. Worse yet, these “very brave” young people may well scurry to their “safe spaces” when confronted with ideas they dislike or facts they have no intension of acknowledging. One millennial, while being interviewed on a public beach, was asked who the United States got its independence from. He answered “Virginia.”

I will admit, in its own way, that is very “profound” indeed.

“One of the worst forms of government is a pure democracy, that is, one in which the citizens enact and administer the laws directly. Such a government is helpless against the mischiefs of faction.”

James Madison

 

“We may define a republic … as a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure, for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it.”

James Madison

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”

-Walter Williams-

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

James Madison stated that all government powers should be administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure, for a limited period, or during good behavior. This would eliminate about 90% of persons holding office in Congress.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

“A body of men holding themselves accountable to nobody ought not to be trusted by anybody.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Pluto at Night
Image Credit: NASA, Johns Hopkins Univ./APL, Southwest Research Institute

Explanation: The night side of Pluto spans this shadowy scene, a stunning spacebased view with the Sun 4.9 billion kilometers (almost 4.5 light-hours) behind the dim and distant world. It was captured by far flung New Horizons in July of 2015. The spacecraft was at a range of some 21,000 kilometers from Pluto, about 19 minutes after its closest approach. A denizen of the Kuiper Belt in dramatic silhouette, the image also reveals Pluto’s tenuous, surprisingly complex layers of hazy atmosphere. The crescent twilight landscape near the top of the frame includes southern areas of nitrogen ice plains now formally known as Sputnik Planitia and rugged mountains of water-ice in the Norgay Montes.

The Editor:  Where is the cat-fight, LL ?

Snowball Cat:  It’s between Hill-gal  and Tulsi Gabbard a U.S. Representative from The Aloha State,  running for President.  It started when Hill-gal accused Tulsi of being a Russian Agent.

TE:  What did Tulsi do, SC ?

Fluffy Cat:  She called Hill-gal out.  It is the funniest thing this year.  Finally, a Democrat tells the truth about the bwitch, and it gets some air play.

TE:  Did you get any video, FC ?

Aloha Cat:  No, but this is a recreation from two ( 2 )  of my cub-reporters.

Tulsi said Hill-gal could come to Hawaii and have some champagne.
