George Washington, Profit or hopeless romantic?

By on Sep 23, 2017

In 1789 as George Washington reluctantly became our first President he wrote a 70 page inaugural address which was never used. In it Washington expresses his faith in the American people and their ability to judge good leaders: “until the people of America shall have lost all virtue; until they shall have become totally insensible to the difference between freedom & slavery; until they shall have been reduced to such poverty of spirit–as to be willing to sell that preeminent blessing, the birthright of Freemen, for a mess of pottage; in short, until they shall have been found incapable of governing themselves and ripe for a master those consequences, I think, can never arrive…” George was nothing if not wise. The prescience shown by the string of “untils” demonstrates his knowledge of the character of man. Now, a pessimist would argue those...

Ask yourself this, WHY

is the US constitution the longest lasting constitution, the longest lasting agreement of government of all time.? Simple, it is the only governmental document that is an AGREEMENT. It is the only document ever created that adheres to it’s first three words, WE THE PEOPLE. Did you know that? On this 225th anniversary of the second greatest document ever written isn’t it time you LEARNED what it says? Of course, you would do even better learning what the first greatest document ever written says. To be continued.

This is hilarious.

People want to watch football for many reasons but one of them is not to see or politics. In fact, escaping politics may be one of the biggest reason people watch football so when the league allows it to take center stage – well, the results are very predictable. Apparently not to the wizards of smart who run football, they prefer to blame hurricanes. How do you make enough money to own a NFL team if you are that stupid? Like the newspaper people before them who blamed everything but the quality of their product for their demise the NFL blames everything but quality of their product and it is not necessarily the quality of play on the field but the play on the sidelines before the game and play by the talking heads and the players off the field which is sinking their ratings. It also doesn’t help that many parents will no longer allow their kids to play football and so the...

Here is a fascinating piece and something I have been saying for years.

Interesting observation by Charles Smith. Something that he only mentions is passing, and I believe is much more significant than people realize, are Ad blockers. I have not seen an ad in over 10 years and I cannot imagine there are not millions more like me and I cannot imagine if more people were even the least bit computer savvy the entire online advertising industry would dissolve into thin air. Either way, his other points are very valid. Thursday, September 14, 2017 Hey Advertisers: The Data-Mining Emperor Has No Clothes When a big advertiser pulls its online adverts and its sales remain unchanged, that tells everyone who’s paying attention something important. It’s an article of widespread faith that data-mining enables advertisers buying online adverts to target consumers with laser-like precision. Vast warehouses of servers grind through billions of records of...

So, now it is offensive to say the name of the country you’re in?

By on Sep 14, 2017

I wonder of any other countries suffer from a similar malady. It seems some of out genius school administrators are concerned that those who illegally entered the USA might be offended by being reminded of the name of the country they were so eager to enter illegally. The sad truth is though, it is not those who risked much to get here that are offended by the name of the country it is the leftist, socialist, communist progressives running public education that are offended by the pride of parents and students chanting USA and it is those people who should be sought out and fired. I do find the general bovine attitude of the parents interviewed a bit disconcerting and there is one comment by a parent that I do find most disturbing: “I’m glad that they will still allow our students to cheer for our country,” said Mother Cody Santero.” Glad THEY will still ALLOW???? And if...

One can only imagine…

a) why nothing has ever come of this b) why the congress bothers putting on shows like this c) what dirt they must have on every member of congress d) whether Gowdy and Comey KNOW what small men they are e) why it doesn’t bother them if they know f) where is the prosecution of the law breakers g) why there is not equal justice under the law All these questions from one 2 minute exchange. Just how guilty do some people have to be before those elected and those appointed to enforce the law – ENFORCE the LAW? It really is hard to come up with any explanation but one.In fact, I don’t think rational, reasoning men can possibly use that ability to draw any conclusion from the exchange but ONE. The 2 minute exchange is below. Gowdy: Good morning, Director Comey. Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received any classified information over her private e-mail, was that...
