Who Are You?

So…….who are you? Well, if you’re one of these people that are horrified at the 11 year old tape of Trump saying dirty words and talking about “getting some”, then you are an ignorant hypocrite, like Paul Ryan. My bet is that the left has been sitting on this for at least a year, and were waiting for October to release it. What an incredible coincidence that a cousin of the Hillary-Endorsing Bush family is a participant in this fake controversy, namely Billy Bush. Frankly I’m more than sick and tired of the pathetic, sanctimonious pap spewing forth from the media, the “Republican” party, and members of the radio and entertainment community.

Trump said some dirty stuff. I’ve listened to it several times. As someone with a long history of audio recording, I will tell you that it is heavily edited to make it even worse than it already is. But…..so what, right? And if you can’t vote against Hillary because of those dirty, dirty, words….. then you’re a jerk. I guess you haven’t ever watched a “dirty” movie or seen a Playboy magazine……and if you’re a man, and you’re telling people that you are offended and shocked by this? You are a liar, or one of the biggest dorks on the face of the Earth. Men talk like pigs sometimes, and it’s usually  to other men they are trying to impress when no women are around. I guess Paul Ryan never had any friends, went through puberty, or made an ass out of himself talking trash to his buddies………yeah right. He’s a liar and a hypocrite and he knows it.

The Globalist Establishment is scared to death, and it’s showing. Just in the last week, Politico has been exposed as rigging their election polls, heavily sampling Democrats over Republicans, and also putting “Independents” as a third of the sample. Can I just honestly say that if you’re an “Independent” that hasn’t decided on who to vote for, please stay home on election day…… because you are as dumb as a post with the spine of a jellyfish. Anyway, on top of rigged polling, just in the last 48 hours it has been released that the head of the New York Elections Board has admitted that during elections, Democrats bus homeless people around the state in order to have them illegally vote at least 10 different times……either for cash payment or booze and hamburgers. Add to that the independent review of just 8 of the 170 or so districts in Virginia that show that at least 1000 non-citizens illegally voted in the last election, and you have a recipe for massive election fraud. ( Can you multiply 1000 times 160? )

See, who cares that Hillary is the biggest, most corrupt politician to ever run for office? Who cares that she can’t go 24 hours without flopping on the ground like a dropped sack of flour? Who cares if she’s been exposed as using actors ( the 15 year old girl asking her a question at a town hall who coincidently was in a Hillary campaign commercial ), and is given the questions- and provides the answers- in advance? Who cares that she has been exposed by Wilkileaks as saying she “hates ordinary Americans”?

Trump’s eleven year old words are horrific, but Hillary being the biggest advocate for fetal genocide amongst the black community is awesome and empowering? Oh, I see……I guess since Planned Parenthood (using our tax dollars) sells the baby body parts for profit it’s ok. Trump is a moral reprobate slammed as a danger by Hollywood, but the same entertainment morons in pro-Hillary ads are juvenile-minded pretenders who have made millions selling sex and violence to the masses. How fortunate they are, and how smart they must be to play make-believe for a living.

On top of the left’s usual…….um, bad actors, we’ve got the problem of the throwbacks on the right who claim they just can’t bring themselves to save America from destruction because the nominee isn’t Jesus. I’d like to ask these folks whom they have ever voted for that fits their ridiculous standards? Politicians have set up their entire lives as frauds in order to fool the rubes into voting for them, and only idiots believe otherwise.

Trump lost more than 900 million dollars in the mid 90’s, and that sucks. Guess who was president during that time that created a hostile business environment? Bill Clinton. Oh wait……guess who lost 6 billion ( SIX BILLION ) dollars during their tenure as Secretary of State? Hillary Clinton. When I say “lost”, I mean that six billion dollars is completely unaccounted for…….vanished like a fart in the wind. Do you want to know the big difference between those two scenarios? Trump lost his own money…….AND HILLARY CLINTON LOST OURS.

But hey……who cares right? Trump likes pretty women and talks smack about it. My advice to everyone is to slap yourself in the face, wake the eff up, and realize what’s at stake here. We are on the verge of war with Russia, a scenario created and pushed by Hillary Clinton and Obama, we are 20 trillion dollars in debt ( more money that has ever circulated in all of the history of the Earth ), and are borderless and flooded by illegal immigrants that bring poverty, disease, and terrorism. Realize that you are being scammed and manipulated, and take action against it……be a rebel. It’s not about Trump the man. It’s about voting against the Globalist Elite Uniparty that is openly on a campaign of destruction against our sovereignty, culture, and American way of life. So I’ll ask you……….who are you?

Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong

I truly enjoyed Hillary Clinton’s performance in Monday’s debate. I also enjoyed not being disappointed in Lester Dolt’s biased position as the designated thrower-of-softballs to Her Majesty. I was hoping that Trump was going to push harder on several answers that Clinton gave, but in reviewing all the post debate coverage, and the history of presidential debates, I realize why he wasn’t tougher. One example would be the series of debates between Romney and Obama…….Romney came out strong in the first, but shot all of his ammunition at once. Combine that with Mitt’s inability to challenge anything Obama said, out of fear of being labeled a racist, and what resulted was a flimsy, flaccid finish in the last two debates that all but guaranteed O’s victory.

Hillary was poised and most likely heavily medicated. At times I thought she had been replaced with an automaton created to remain standing without coughing for 90 minutes…..but really, good for her. After spending the last couple of months flopping like a bass on a boat deck, it was nice to see her in old form. Oddly, I was initially worried that Trump would be the one that came across as arrogant and aggressive, but it turned out by the end of the debate it was Hillary that had that description in the bag.

I also would give Trump the following advice: Stop defending your business. I get it, I really do. When you are a private citizen with a long history of business that carries your name, you are most likely proud of that business, and when it is attacked you get defensive. The point Trump is missing is that outside of die-hard leftist hacks, NOBODY CARES. Nobody cares about your tax returns. Nobody cares about some 40 year old lawsuit. Nobody cares if you’re worth 4, 5, or 6 billion. Nobody cares about anything you said in some ancient interview or on season 3 of “The Apprentice”. Let them talk about all those things that have had no effect on any of our lives, or the direction of our nation and the world. Voters have put Trump where he is because of what he isn’t, not what he is, and someone in his camp needs to communicate that to him.

The real issue from Monday night is the giant, steaming pile of bullsqueeze that Madame Secretary left on stage. I’m pretty sure you can still see it moldering and buzzing with flies all the way from space. I literally laughed out loud several times, and yelled at Lester Holt several more. It was tragically hilarious to see Lester ask Hillary about “cyber security” and how she would face that threat as president. Really!!??? I mean for real? I don’t know whose straight-face I had more admiration for, Holt’s or Hillary’s. Nowhere in her non-answer did she address that she is responsible for the single biggest cyber-security breach in the history of the State Department……all because she willfully and illegally installed a private server in a Denver Bathroom. Did Lester even mention it? Nope.

Another tear-inducing moment was Hillary talking about the Middle East and our relationship with Russia. The world is closer to war than many people even comprehend, and Obama and Hillary are solely and completely responsible for it. Through Clinton’s State Department actions the U.S. fomented and sponsored the disastrous “Arab Spring” that has left a trail of coups, Islamic takeovers of former allies like Egypt and Libya, and a civil war in Syria. Hillary’s complete failure of a “reset with Russia” has led to a very uncomfortable conflict of interest in Syria. For those that read Yahoo news or watch CNN, Syria is involved in a civil war, that we stoked, against Islamic forces bent on a Sharia caliphate. Secular, sovereign Syria then called upon it’s ally Russia for assistance in fighting these forces. Our response? We provide weapons and assistance to the Islamist forces while repeatedly “mistakenly” dropping bombs and airstrikes on Syrian and Russian troops and positions. It almost seems Hillary and Obama are hell-bent on starting a war with Putin’s Russia, by proxy or in the open. I have extensively written about the dangerous folly that this is…….and how unwise it is to poke the Russian Bear, whose largest ally, China, is our biggest creditor.

In the end I felt like everything that Hillary Clinton said Monday night was the same old list of tired leftist tropes that are trotted out every four years. The disconnect for the Hillary campaign is that all the problems she outlined are problems that she has either failed to address in 30 years of “service”, or that she directly caused or influenced as a Senator and then Secretary of State. It seems that all Clinton has done in her long career is sell influence, going all the way back to Arkansas and Bill’s presidency…….and it has been quite profitable. In all the talk of Trump’s tax returns and finances, there were no questions from Lester Holt about the 230 million the Clinton’s have accumulated mostly while she was Secretary of State, and what that money bought. There were no questions about the corrupt Clinton Foundation and that only 6 percent of donations to the Foundation go to the causes it espouses. There were hysterics over words said about women by Trump……yet no mention or questions about Bill’s sexual assaults and impeachment, and no questions about Hillary’s involvement and assistance in destroying Bill’s victims. There was much talk about “temperament”, but no questions about Hillary’s “no eye contact” rule while First Lady, or her campaign’s treatment of Bernie Sanders. There was much chatter about Trump lawsuits, yet no questions or interuptions from Lester Holt directed at Hillary for being under federal investigation……while running for president.

Hillary has no plan except more of the same. More taxes, more racial division, more tribalism, more debt, more war, and more of her and Obama’s plan for America. Hillary has made a giant mess out of everything she touches, yet wants you to believe she suddenly has come up with some solutions. Right. That’s like cleaning up a puddle of puke with an even bigger puddle of puke. Gross. Don’t tell Hillary though, as according to Lester Holt and her supporters, she just can’t ever be wrong.

Oops They Did It Again……

One of the most helpful tools I have in assessing the crumbling of our National Culture, and the decline of journalism in America, is the Yahoo homepage that pops up on my monitor every morning. I find that it’s an excellent gauge of how low standards have become, and also a great example of the massive disinformation taking place on a global scale. In other words, whatever Yahoo promotes is a distraction, and whatever they hide and obfuscate is the real news.

My morning chuckle came from seeing the main story……..Surprise! it’s an in depth article on the 8 million dollar mansion that upstanding world citizen and voice for the globe’s poor/downtrodden/living-in-squalor, Angelina Jolie, has acquired for her and her international brood. Nevermind that Jolie is a fraud, and in my opinion a supreme weirdo, that is on camera making out with her brother, wearing Billy Bob’s blood around her neck, and collecting colors and ethnicities of children like shoes. As I understand from the story, she desperately needed a place to hide from mean-old-stoner Brad Pitt. To each their own, as they say.

The real news was buried several frivolous articles in……and that was that the Cascade Mall shooter, in Burlington Washington, was apprehended, and guess what? He’s a Turkish born, likely Islamic, resident alien. Huh…..who woulda thunk it? What’s really odd is that just a few days ago, Ahmad Rahami, another islamist, blew up some stuff in New York, after being on the Fed’s radar and his own father trying to turn him in.

I see a common denominator here, just like in most mass shootings that occur lately…….do you? Well Yahoo News sure doesn’t, and neither do the writers and producers of television news and entertainment. In fact, according to most fictional TV shows, an example being Law & Order SVU, most murderers, rapists, and crooks are blond haired, blue eyed, middle aged white guys. If terrorism is addressed by Hollywood it’s more likely to be a hidden army of Scandinavian Vikings, or a horde of neo-Nazi skinheads that roam the streets looking for poor, hardworking Muslim cabbies to terrorize out of nativist fear.

Could it be a coincidence that the mainstream media is watering down, and downright ignoring, news that weakens Hillary Clinton’s case for the presidency and strengthens Trump’s? Uh….no.

My only hope is that enough people are sick and tired of the ridiculous hypocrisy and lies that dominate our computer, television, and movie screens. We’ll see. I would like to believe that there are folks who see the Clinton ad where Hillary says, “Is this the president we want for our daughters?” and laugh. Why? Because all I can picture in my mind during that ad is Bill Clinton groping underage girls on the “Lolita Express”, sexually assaulting several women, sticking a cigar where it doesn’t belong while in the Oval Office, and Hillary Clinton attempting to cover it up and then publicly destroy all of his victims. Is that the president you want for your daughter, indeed.

The aftereffects from tomorrow night’s debates may be our only indicator of how many are still willing to swallow the left’s, and Clinton’s, lies. I have no doubt that our entertainment and news media will…….and that if Hillary (literally or figuratively) chokes on stage Monday, Tuesday morning’s Yahoo front page will be an expose of Angelina Jolie’s selflessness and one of the Kardashian’s cleavage and it’s contributions to the art world.

Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, the Republican Presidential Debate, and Other Words That Will Make You Read This

Well there it was ladies and germs, the three hour slog that was the CNN presidential debate.  I was right, as usual, that it was going to be the limp-wristed, clammy handed attempt by the GOP Establishment and The Clown Show media to discredit and dishonor anyone running who is not their pay-for-play escort. Speaking of paying to play, it looks like the R.N.C. headed by Reince Priebus ( whose name sounds like an alternate title for Deputy Furher), made a sweet deal with CNN where the network could rake in the dough and simultaneously keep tight-fisted control over the content we are allowed to hear and rebroadcast. What a deal! The 5th Column/modern-day Pravda can become ever richer off of manipulating all of us poor saps like Jeff Dunham manipulates Jose the Jalapeno. And no, Jorge Ramos, I’m not talking about Illegals……but if you could hear me say your name I would indeed add the Latino Pronunciacion with mucho sarcasmo.

I’ll be brief, as I’m sure everyone would like to get back to reading about how just absolutely awesome Carly Fiorina was at the debate last night. How she just stuck it to that mean old Donald Trump……who made fun of her apppeawance (implied waaaahhhhhh). I love it when people tell me how much they are above gender politics, as a woman, then make everything you say for a week relate to how you’re a woman. I’m sure I’ve never heard someone make fun of The Donald’s hairdon’t, or Chris Chrispie-Kreme’s waistline, or Rand ” give him a box to stand on” Paul’s height. Besides, the growing caliphate invading Europe has such a deep and healthy respect for “the ladies” and how upset they get about being mildly insulted.  I’m not saying she crashed and burned or anything…..but it shows the Establishment and their Lobbyist Masters’ desperation to look at Fox News and Redstate and see the hundred or so articles screaming at us rubes that, Carly won! Carly won!  We get it…..you’ve found your new Scott Walker….uhh, I mean John Kasich…..uhh wait….we’re almost out of Jeb Bush replacements, damn it!

I actually think that much of the reason that Fiorina is rising is due to the new narrative that she is somehow a political outsider, when in fact she was a big time adviser for John McCain and his McShameful attempt at being president in 2008, in addition to running a smear-filled campaign for senate in 2010 and losing to Barbara Boxer. Unfortunately her political record is filled with just as much success as her business one ( HP stock went up almost seven percent when she was canned ). That’s not what Charlie Sheen would have once called WINNING!

My main point is this…… I’m not saying we shouldn’t have debates. But I AM SAYING that there doesn’t need to be a clown car’s worth of candidates vying for time and attention. We are at a point where guys (sorry Carly, didn’t mean to offend) like Christie, Jindal, Graham, Paul, and…….. oh screw it – I can’t even remember the rest of the thousand people the GOP has running to throw jabs at Trump – guys like them need to go home. Even Rick Perry decided to turn it in when he realized that once again he would actually have to talk without a piece of paper or a teleprompter in front of his face, full of lines written by other people. I say take a poll, put the top 6 on a stage, pull names out of a phone book from “flyover country” to be moderators, and broadcast without cost and commercial interruption to We The People……since we are the ones who have to live with the consequences. I know Rupert Murdoch wants to give El Jebe’ nine swings of the bat to at least make contact with the ball, but another Bush just ain’t gonna happen…..no matter how many times he rubs the Pope and makes a wish.

The questions need to be serious….like, what’s your plan for say…. the Iran debacle, Illegal Immigration, trillions and trillions of debt, a crumbling infrastructure, impending conflict with China and Russia, racial riots and volatility, bottom ranking schools, corporate cronyism, lobbyist control of government, welfare, and maybe a couple of other things that are threatening to sink us like an the iceberg the size of Australia. But hey, what do I know….I’m only supposed to be watching the commercials and buying stuff.

 

 

 

 

The Republicans Still Just Don’t Get It

A quick thought here…..(as I am busy scripting the next EmpireofTruth video), The republicans, after eight years of Dubya Bush and six with Obozo, still just don’t get it. Do you know why Mitt Romney lost the last presidential election? I do, and it’s in the numbers.  Millions of ordinary folks stayed home and by default gave the Dems and Obama yet another victory. Why? Because Mitt was, and is, just plain boring. Every current candidate, with the exception of Cruz, is attacking Trump because of his comments on Illegal Immigration. What a bunch of Idiots. I mean historically, technically, and factually they are complete boobs.

Let me state this for everyone…..even those who think with their “feelings”, which is every single supposed progressive, NO NATION CAN SURVIVE MASSIVE UNFETTERED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I’ve written this before, but in this “nation of cowards” ( Quoting Eric Holder ), we are unwilling to look at a steaming pile of horse shat and call it what it is. You cannot import illiterate, unskilled peoples that do not speak the national language, do not respect the national law, and refuse to assimilate, into what’s left of our culture and expect positive results. As long as we have a welfare state, we cannot have open borders.

But don’t tell that to Rick Perry. He’s what is called ” all hat and no cattle” in Texas. I mean, what a moron. The governor of a border state that is racked with crime and expense at the hands of criminal aliens is attacking an extremely successful businessman, with interests all over the world, over truthful, if un-artful, statements about illegal immigration.. Perry is trashing Trump while praising the efforts of the “tejanos” at the Alamo…..even though he left out the huge fact that it was an army of Mexicans from Mexico that were the attackers.

Let me put it to you this way. If you were a bank robber, or rapist, or murderer, and you see an article in the paper saying, “hey……here in La Ciudad Mexico we have a Sanctuary City. If you come to Mexico illegally, have a felony criminal history, and cannot speak Spanish, we will welcome you! You will have access to medical care, EBT cards, and employment. All you do is show up, we’ll do the rest, Gringo!”.  Who do you think from the United States would flock to this paradise? Well that’s what every “sanctuary city” in the U.S. is doing. Sounds pretty stupid, doesn’t it? You know why? Because it is, that’s why.

Listen, I know people like to make an argument based on feeling good and patting themselves on the back. Something similar to, ” Hey….everybody wants the same thing for their family and to have a good life and what about the children….”.  It’s usually these same intellectual giants that don’t ever actually rub shoulders with illegals, or if they do it’s to condescendingly point out where their shrubs need pruning and yard needs edging.

Frankly, if you are one of these bleeding heart/factually vacant/non-critical thinking/political partisan hacks that just is absolutely set on self destruction, by all means, shut your mouth and open your wallet.

See, there’s nothing preventing you and all the extended-pinkie-finger chardonnay drinkers you hang out with from taking your money and throwing it at every illegal you see. That’s what non-government types do, you know. But my guess is that all those who so strenuously advocate open borders will continue to insist that everyone else pony up the funds through taxation and the welfare state. These same people will claim that we are “a nation of immigrants”, when those that came before did so legally and without the benefit of social welfare.

The crux of the issue is this: If you think that we the enlightened people, who have the memory-span of goldfish, no civics or knowledge of history, and no sense of the greatness and ingenuity of those that came before us, can solve the massive problems we now face with our current philosophy……….oh my.

Because there’s a reason the Chinese built a wall  several centuries ago. There’s a reason Rome fell. There’s a reason that every major civilization built borders around themselves. Because you can’t lock your doors but then leave your windows wide open.  It’s time we open our eyes and close our border, and especially time to staunch the massive bleeding from a wound that’s self inflicted. I invite you, if you disagree, to put your money where your mouth is.  Buy houses, move illegals in, pay for their healthcare and education, feed and clothe them, learn Spanish to communicate with them, and then clean up after them. Only then will I tolerate your soap box moaning about human rights and the children.

Oh……and Illegals are sending (as of a 2013 Washington Times report) over 23 Billion dollars back to Mexico every year. No wonder the Mexican government lobbies our Congress and White House to ignore their citizens illegal entry into our country. And that’s just Mexico.

Just don’t try to tell any of the Establishment Republican contenders any of this. They are all too busy promising more goodies to the non citizen,  talking about the confederate flag, being obsessed with what does or doesn’t dangle between your legs and where you want to put it, and trilling the R’s in Puerrrrrto Rrrrrrico. For the childrrrrrrren, just not yours.

The True Blues

People on the left are completely missing the point about what has happened in Baltimore. Police are not on a crusade to treat inner-city black people with disrespect and randomly  gun them down. I have a strong suspicion that all the riots and gnashing of teeth are just a convenient excuse to grab a few handfuls of looted merchandise and a big screen television. Agree? Well……

People on the right are completely missing the point about what has happened in Baltimore. Police are not on a crusade to treat people with respect and sometimes they randomly gun them down. I have a strong suspicion that anyone who thinks that the guy injured in the police van did it to himself is delirious.

You see… everyone in the debate on radio and television is propping up the straw man they have an investment in. I see the guy who lives in the White House trying to foment the racial divide in this country in order to create two things. First, a permanent victim class dependent on government and perpetually disgruntled. Second, a permanent victimizer class that is afraid to speak or act yet funds the victim class. Both groups are forgetting that, whatever the reason, anytime someone in government opens their mouth with a solution that “benefits all of us”, what they are really saying is, ” Hey idiots, I’m about to use something to inflame you and then manipulate you so I can have more of your money and even more power.”.

This is why I despise both the republican and democrat parties. Out of those two I prefer republican only because they at least occasionally pretend to believe in our founding documents and ideals. But the truth is that NO ONE in government, local, state or federal, has your best interests at heart, only their own. It’s why I laugh at the hippies who want a communist/socialist type system where everyone get’s “what’s fair”.  Who decides what that is, exactly? The Clinton’s would say that five hundred thousand dollars for a 30 minute “talk” in Backyakistan is fair.

Where police are concerned, in every city, state, and town, no matter the size and racial make up, there is a “color” issue. That color is Blue…….and it’s Blue against everyone else. See, they don’t look at you as black, white, yellow or brown. You are simply one of “them”. You and I are seen as little petulant, disobedient, children who neither give or deserve any respect above what the bare minimum requires. Only those who have had the luck of never running afoul of a policeman blindly support modern law enforcement in America. Are there exceptions to this? Of course. But when dealing with individuals who, at their discretion, can take your liberty, livelihood, and reputation, a much higher overall standard must be met and maintained.

Another issue with police in this country is this: Why do we have fully armed revenue agents sitting on roads and highways collecting fines and issuing tickets? I really don’t want the stormtrooper who has been trained in the use of deadly force sitting around trying to catch me at 80 in a 65. And in turn, I don’t want the out of shape ticket-writer showing up to get me out of a hostage situation. So yes, there needs to be some reworking of the way the police work, but I very strongly suggest that centralizing control to the federal government is an extremely bad idea. My challenge still stands to anyone who can name just one thing the federal government does well, if at all. It certainly doesn’t win wars, protect the border, and insure my rights…. and frankly that’s the only three things it should do.

The thing I find most troubling is the ease in which our elites shift our focus. Because while we are talking about Baltimore, and the role of police nationwide, we are not talking about what I think are bigger issues. Don’t be fooled, that is exactly the goal. Our leaders are NOT talking about the problems we are facing globally that will affect all of us in the very near future. Iran’s nuke, the growing Caliphate, Europe under Islamic siege, illegal immigration, disintegration of national culture, and let’s not forget the enormous growing debt that weighs like a millstone around our collective necks.

So yes, let’s talk about what needs to change concerning police in America. Whether it’s body cameras, or a shift in policy and attitude, changes are needed. My point is that they must come from the local level. Turning police into a national subsidized federal force is exactly what our leadership wants, and exactly what our founders feared. Let’s not allow Washington to “fix” another problem for us. Like they did immigration, debt, corruption, and healthcare.

 

 

 

Oh No…… It’s Mr. Bill Oh’ Really!

Aside

  There’s a troubling trend I’ve been noticing in the last few days. Well… to be honest, it’s not new, and not that many are troubled by it. Maybe that’s what I find so irritating. I just watched a clip of “King Loofa”, otherwise known as Bill O’Reilly, once again pontificating on television while slathered in what looks like oompa-loompah make up.  His grand, arrogant oration to a member of the opposition to nationalized healthcare made me want to spit out my Kroger-brand coffee. 

  His (paraphrased)  point was this: ” Hey, you guys know you’re not going to win this de-fund Obamacare thing…. you know it’s a fight you can’t win…. so why are you fighting it? What’s wrong with you guys? You must be stupid or crazy or both.” Well why don’t we change Bill’s name to Bill Oh Really? I thought this nation was founded on the very notion that some fights are worth fighting. Even when it’s against all odds, even when everyone says it can’t be done. Defeat the most powerful empire on earth? Nah.. Create a republic of free men and women that takes the power from an Aristocracy and gives it to ordinary folks? Nah…. Impossible. So why try? 

  It brings to mind just a few examples of people who spit in the face of Bill Oh Really’s “wisdom”.  I’ve already mentioned the founding of our country, so let’s start there. Do you think that George Washington had confidence in his ability to defeat the armies of the British Crown?  Well I don’t think he did. In fact, if not for the outcome achieved, and with the exception of the Battle of Trenton, Washington kinda sucked at winning any engagement with the British.  His crowning achievement was probably not getting shot right out of his saddle every time he lined the Colonials up for the slaughter.  To me it seems that it surely must have been Providence that we came out on top of the struggle for Independence.

  Let’s make a stab at another individual that made the impossible possible.  Take a look around you wherever you are right now.  Are the lights on? Can you read at night without dripping wax all over you? Let’s forget the whole flourescent bulb fiasco for a second, as that’s the subject for another day.  Electric light has changed the world in a way that almost nothing else has.  Mankind finally did what was thought to be a pipe dream. Bring light to darkness, safety to lurking danger, with the flip of a switch.  Thomas Edison tried hundreds of time to invent the lightbulb. and I’m sure the Oh Really’s of the world told him, “hey, it’s not going to work, it’s a fight you can’t win…. so cut it out already will you?”.  Well I’m glad the Sultan of Shower Scrubbers wasn’t there to, pardon the pun, illuminate him on the futility of his endeavor. 

And finally, I wonder what Mr. Bill would say to Martin Luther King jr. and other civil rights activists of the sixties? Surely they were also told, “Hey…. what you’re doing is impossible. You’re just making a stink for something that you know will never happen.” I guess he’d line up with guys like Democrat Senator Strom Thurmond or Klan member Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia, who personally stood at the podium for over 14 hours to try to block the Civil Rights Act. Or guys like George Wallace, and yes he’s another Democrat , who stood in multiple schoolhouse doors to block innocent children from going to school.

I was under the impression that I was fortunately born somewhere where the impossible is made possible. I thought this was the Nation of Underdogs. I thought this was perhaps the only place on the face of the earth where if you could dream it, you could do it. Because sometimes you fight because it’s the right thing to do, no matter the odds, no matter the cost. History is made by men and women who looked poo-pooers like Bill O’ Reilly in the face and said, “Impossible, huh? We’ll see about that.”
