Democrats were Created for the Sole Purpose to be Ridiculed and Mocked

Even Democrats ridicule and mock their own members. This is Joe Crowley, the CHAIRMAN of the Democrat House Caucus. In other words, Joe is the person who was supposed to take over for Nancy Pelosi when the brain worms completed their task of eating what was left of the organic matter in her vapid head. It seems that Joe couldn't even beat a mouth-breathing debutante from Dave Matthews' hamlet of (90.49% white) Yorktown Heights. I mean, seriously Joe, if you cannot even win against a silver-spoon-fed Communist from one of the richest areas in the country, how are you going to keep everyone ELSE on the Democrat Plantation?

In all seriousness, we have reached the tipping point in this country, folks. The Communists come from the wealthiest families ever seen on Planet Earth and the lemmings think that the Socs will take care of the Greaser hoards. (That's from The Outsiders, if you are a young person.) We're done as a country if our federal government doesn't make monumental strides, and quickly, to dismantle our federal government. Wait...back it up...that sounded a WHOLE lot more probable before I saw it on paper. Scratch all that, we're doomed.

This past week, eighty-one year old Supreme, Tony Kennedy, decided to hang up his whatever Justices hang up and then we saw eighty-FIVE year old Ruth Bonzo Ginsburg (The Notorious RBG) planking.

And the morons in the Imbecile Corral wailed and gnashed their teeth. All I can say to that is, "You know, Elena Kagan, the first openly retarded Supreme, has been on the court for eight years and we haven't heard a report of her flinging her poo during a hearing, yet." Notice, I add YET because unless someone saw it and put the video on Twittah, the national news would never let us know that Barry Obama appointed a Supreme dumber than him and Joe Biden. I'm kidding, there's no way that Kagan is dumber than Barry or Joe Biden. She would have to be on a breathing machine if she were that stupid.

Now, I said all that above to get to this. Believe it or not, I teach Sunday School to young ladies and men that are in the eleventh grade. Yes, you can go through the archives of this here blog and find numerous examples of how un-Christ-like I am. I've left them there for me. But, as I told those people in my Sunday School class today, and many times in the past, I. HAVE. A. KING. The only thing that I need from my government is for them to keep everyone out of my business.

That will not happen because of Democrats. You see, I have always maintained that I am not really a Republican, I just cannot stand Democrats. Growing up in Mississippi in the 1960s, you learned quickly that Democrats are evil, vile, murdering racists that will stop at nothing to maintain their tenuous grip on powah!!! They are so very evil that they have made attempts to tell everyone that the people that were Democrats in the 1960s jumped over to the Republican Party and now all the racists are Republican.

Let me dispel that quickly. Bill and Hillary Clinton were Democrats in the 1960s and steadily rose to the place that they were and almost put the second Clinton in the White House in 2016. Their daughter, Mr. Ed, is still considered an up and comer in the party.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Minority Leader, campaigned for Eugene McCarthy in 1968 and has always been a Democrat.

Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, is the Satanic spawn of Baltimore Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro Jr. (D), who served in that role from 1947-1959.

I also shot down the "Dixiecrats All Became Republicans" argument with NAMES and stuff back in 2005. Wow, 2005.

Yes, I can go down the list of current Democrats and put their parents, siblings/cousins, friends, commune members, and drug dealers firmly in the Democrat Party from the onset. SO, it must have been the voters that changed parties, right? Well, oddly enough, I actually studied that little theory, too.

Unless the parties have totally reversed, inside/out, upside/down, and some twisty things thrown in for good measure, they are still the same as they have always been. Democrats are RACISTS.

Now that this post is properly prefaced, this coming Wednesday will be Independence Day. Independence Day is wrongly recognized as July 4, 1776 instead of July 2nd because they didn't have email then. The date is completely unimportant, the HOLIDAY however is not. It is called Independence Day, NOT "July 4th."

The reason that this distinction is so important to me is because Democrats have to pervert and bastardize language in whatever country they are attempting to ruin. Check out what they have had to do to the Chinese language to keep Communists in powah. They actually have (I am NOT kidding) a group that controls the actual words used in their language. The group is called the National Commission on Language and Script Work. Look it up if you don't believe me.

In our country, deleting certain portions of our history is so important that in just the past three years we have destroyed almost every historical statue in most Democrat controlled cities. Come to think of it, Laura Ingalls Wilder is getting black-balled in recent days because of freakin' Little House on the Prairie. I ain't lyin'!!!

Now, I write this as my wife and daughter are in Third World Haiti trying to minister to people that are in their desperate predicament because of the philosophy of the Democrat Party. Understand, right across the border from this poverty-stricken Hellhole is a flourishing country that has so far avoided the Democrats coming in to keep them down. Take a look at Democrat-controlled Africa and see the exact extent of the devastation of Democrat policy. Look down south to Venezuela, where Democrat policy has taken the country with the most oil reserves in this hemisphere and turned it into The Sudan. As a matter of fact, you can look to any of the American countries south of our border, twelve in all, with a population of 100 million more people, that have a combined GDP per capita one sixth the size of the United States per capita.

From all this, you simply MUST deduce that the United States has to be doing something right and the Democrat Party, the Party of the Morons, keeps telling you that we are the worst thing ever in the history of the world.

Now, if you are still trying to be civilized and carry on debate with someone that is a Democrat, you are consorting with the enemy. Make no mistake, they are the enemy of everything that is good and right and just.

If you Twittah, check out this Blue-Checked person from the Democrat Party that is willing to go to "any means necessary" to prevent President Orange from appointing a Supreme to replace Kennedy while RBG, The Wise Latina, and The Albino from The Princess Bride still sit on the court.

Black Panther - A Movie Review

The transformation is complete in The World of Marvel.

This movie is absolute garbage.

Black Panther is even worse than Wonder Woman.

If Avengers: Infinity War is this bad, I'm done.

If the profanity and obscene gestures in this movie were not bad enough, there is always the overt racism and social justice mantras slapping you upside the head. Seriously, these movies used to be fun, humorous, and entertaining. Now, they are simply insufferable Democrat propaganda.

Marvel, you have one more chance with me.

Moral Relativism and the Ever-Moving Goalpost

Well, we've really done it now! Housewives (because normal men don't watch that garbage) all over the United States are in mourning since the heralded Matt Lauer got canned for abusing women in the workplace. The female "talent" on the morning show, where this sleazebag used to rake in nearly 25 mm a year, are crying in their coffee. In case you didn't know, Matt Lauer is only six years older than me, so HE KNOWS BETTER. He's just a bad person.

You want to know the bizarre thing? These crying women KNEW that Matt was a bad person and said NOTHING!!!

You want to know something else? I'll bet any amount of money that Donald Trump has done the same thing!!!

You want more? Barry Obama has done the same thing with Democrat men!!! Plus, he literally screwed everyone else in the whole world by being such an incompetent, feckless moron!

Oddly enough, we're ALL bad people!!! But, that doesn't absolve anyone of suffering the consequences of their behavior.

Now, you want to know the weirdest thing about all of this? In 1880, the age of consent in Delaware was SEVEN YEARS OLD!!! In 1920, Delaware had raised that age to 16, but, even today, the minimum age of consent in some places in the United States is 12. (Check it, I dare you!)

What does that have to do with Matt Lauer being scum of the Earth? Well, I'm going to tell you.

Changing social mores have made any behavior acceptable in any place. NAY! Deviancy is demanded by the "enlightened people." That's what happens when you have freedom without responsibility. By the way, in case you didn't know, stupidity SHOULD hurt. Pain is a great teacher, but still we continue to define deviancy down. <---term originated from DEMOCRAT Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan in 1993, but he was talking about crime in the black neighborhoods. Today, he would be regarded as a "far-right winger" by our national media and college professors, even though he was at best a leftist.

Is there any way to change the ideology of freedom without responsibility? Absolutely, but we will have to rid the world of Democrats. In Biblical times, they were referred to as "Moabites." But, more importantly, we must come to understand that there does exist ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

Here's one, if you're married, don't have sex with anyone other than your spouse, but even more than that, DON'T EVEN TRY TO DO IT.

In the society of today, we have become a nation of people that continually lives by the mantras, "That's none of my business" and "if it feels good, it must be good," but what about when those ideologies affect our children? As parents, we simply must demand that our offspring follow absolute truths that were accepted from the beginning of time. Not only that, you know that there are times that you will lose your mind over a supposed slight of your kids. Guess what, everyday occurrences are ALWAYS slights against your kids. They are going to get bruised and battered, all day, every day, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

EXCEPT! Show your kids that while life is going to be hard at times, the ones that wind up making the largest difference to the human species are the ones that can roll with the punches. Here's a shocker, a twenty-six year old is NOT a baby!!! But, neither is a seven year old, why, just 137 years ago, they were mature enough to consent to doing the wild thing!!! In the currently "enlightened" enclave of Delaware!!! (FYI, Delaware was a SLAVE STATE, kept slaves until two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and didn't ratify the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution until 1901!!!)

Furthermore, you know that you have had times all up in the Wal*Mart when you wanted to snatch your belt off and straighten out someone else's kid. YOU would have never behaved like that because your parents would have done the same thing, but, they didn't sometimes and you learned that there were certain times that you could get away with things and sometimes you could not.

Such is the nature of the human beast. Will it ever change? So far, it hasn't in the history of man, so odds are slim that it will ever change.

To anyone that will listen, I always say that doing the right thing is always harder than doing the wrong thing. If you put your big, fat brain to work long enough, you'll know this to be true.

Have you ever pocketed a ten dollar bill that you found on the ground? That was the WRONG thing.

I started this blog in January of 2005. In October 2005, I added the header text you see above. This is a Wayback from October 2005. Even then, I knew that I was on my way to becoming the person that I was supposed to be, even if it had to have been subconciously. I am not there by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm closer than I was in 2005.

If it takes one man fully twelve years to start doing what he has known to be the right thing since early childhood, changing a nation shall certainly take much longer. I am fifty-three years old, but the personally ignored absolute truths that guide my life have always been there. I just chose to not follow them...much like Matt Lauer...and Donald Trump...and Barry Obama...please, you know that you are not shocked.

If you do not know this, never trust anyone that votes for Democrats. Sorry, Democrats fought tooth and nail to maintain slavery. Think about that, Democrats have always wanted to OWN PEOPLE. Matt Lauer is a deranged Democrat fanboy who makes every attempt to OWN women within his grasp.

Oh, give up on the Clintons, though, they are going to Hell, all of 'em and their lunatic supporters.

Please take the time to comment.

Man, I am so out of practice and rusty that typical posts read like a disjointed series of nothingness, now. Even more so than in the ago. Sorry.

Drive-By Blogging - Normal People Better Unite

Man, what in the world is going on in this world? In the last week or so, we've had a Democrat kill fifty-nine people in Vegas, one of the Obama's good Democrat buddies get outed as a serial rapist (everyone was keeping quiet about it for a coupla' decades, well except for the jokes about it at the freakin' Oscars!!!), everyone quit watching professional footbaw (because of the SLAVERY!!!), and Democrat California passed a law, that makes it like a parking ticket, to knowingly infect another human being with human immunodeficiency virus or HIV. Oh, and people with HIV can actually donate blood!!! That's how they killed Arthur Ashe!

Stellar job, people!!!

I guess that since I have not been posting, people forgot what they were supposed to do and how they were supposed to act. I'll correct that by giving few hints in this post.

Number One: Don't murder anyone. To normal people, this is a no-brainer. But, since there are 200 million registered voters, and 48% of them are Democrats, there are at least 96,000,000 people in this country that can legitimately be referred to as "Moderately Impaired or Delayed," according to The Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale. Normal people refer to the "Moderately Impaired or Delayed" as MORONS, which all Democrats are. Please don't make a single attempt to say that there are smart Democrats, that just makes you look stupid, like a Democrat.

Number Two: Don't rape anyone. Again, to normal people, you really don't have to teach this, but there is a special class that Democrats give that offers up the finer points of how to rape somebody and get them to make jokes about it on color tee-vee. I know, it's very hard to believe, but it is true. That video is from the 2013 Academy Awards and it wasn't funny to me because I didn't know there was a guy raping people!!! Because I am a normal person, I would have told the POLICE!!!

Number Three: If you were never a slave, you cannot complain about being a slave. I guess I need to tip-toe around this issue because I have never been black, but I can honestly say that playing professional footbaw for the minimum wage of Two Million Three Hundred Ten Thousand dollars for your first four years, you do NOT know what slavery is. By way of comparison, even if you were working at fifteen dollars an hour, it would take you 154,000 hours to make that kind of dust. To break it down for you even more, to work that many hours, you would have to work twenty-four hours a day, every day, for six thousand four hundred sixteen years and eight months. Quite frankly, even slaves don't live that long.

And finally, Number Four: Don't infect someone with a life-threatening medical condition to get your rocks off. Since Millennials do not understand Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), it killed a bunch of sexually promiscuous people and needle junkies back in the day. It was originally called GRID (Gay-Related Immuno Deficiency) or Gay Cancer because it only infected homosexual men, but Harvey Milk made sure that it would get into the blood supply and kill normal people as quickly as the gay men were dying. Yes, that Harvey Milk that is revered as a saint by stupid people everywhere today. I seem to remember Sean Penn, the wife beater and Communist, making a movie about good, ol' Harvey. In case you are wondering, over 230 billion federal tax dollars have been spent on AIDS research since 1981. I'm guessing with the new laws in California, test patients will be numerous for your research grant work, Dr. Government Scientist.

All that carping aside, I would like to state for the record, quit it. Y'all are acting like Democrats to allow these things to keep happening. Until this country, The United States of America, regrows its backbone and starts standing up for the things that are good and right and just, more of these ludicrous things are going to continue. Notice how Roger Goodell wrote that letter right after President Trumperoid said that players that kneel need to be fired? We're all like that, if you make that first move, someone will back you up, even if you are a mediocre President.

I guarantee it.

Drive-By Blogging - Sick of Debating Pre-Paid Medical Plans

"Mr. Doofus, I certainly appreciate you agreeing to pay for all of the medical services for my client, Aging Democrat Groupie Who Slept With Rick James and Magic Johnson. We're ALL going to be RICH!!!"

Since I only post about twice a year, the number of eyes and ears that my posts reach are negligible, but I like to pretend that there are still one thousand people a day reading my drivel. Occasionally, the voices scream so loudly in my head that I have to post. This circumstance is no different.


After hearing no fewer than six references on the news today about the debate on "healthcare," my brain is ready to a'splode! There simply cannot exist a person so stupid as to actually believe there is a debate on "healthcare," because no one can define that ambiguous term and even if they could, they would not even mention the actual legislation that is being bandied about in the Swamp in D.C.

You see, Non-Idiotarian, the United States Congress is yakking about nothing but PRE-PAID MEDICAL PLANS. Oddly enough, we have had those since 1973 and the cost of MEDICAL SERVICES has exploded since that time. Did you know that Teddy Kennedy pushed through the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973, with Richard Nixon (Not EVEN as evil as Trump!) signing it, in the hopes that some day, it would lead to the Democrats being able to selectively determine who lives and dies? Yeppers, I ain't lie.

As other factors in the ever increasing costs of medical services, we have Medicaid, Medicare, and the federal government throwing pallets of money at "research facilities" that do nothing but write grant applications while never "curing" a single malady. Hey, even The March of Dimes is all aboard the PORK TRAIN, now. Back in the day, they were trying to wipe out polio and DID, but they had to keep rolling in the jack, so they decided to fight "low birth weight." Hey, I know, let's call it, "Preterm Birth." Ambiguous enough? They will never "cure" them apples!!!

There is really no need to discuss the half a billion dollars of tax money that goes to Abortions R Us every year.

Now, to state this quite simply and succinctly, there is nothing good about the federal government having any control over YOUR health. Anyone that tells you that the federal government can bring down the cost of medical services, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, they're not even talking about doing that!!! They're talking about bringing down the cost of PRE-PAID MEDICAL PLANS that have benefits THEY determine the plans must have. They are talking about the COST of the ambiguous plans that were devised by Teddy Kennedy's sick mind a mere 1266 days after he drowned Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick. Instead of being on death row, Teddy decided to put everyone on death row and Nixon allowed it!!!

You know, if we had just one ACTUAL MEDICAL PROGRAM that the federal government was running to determine if they were capable of performing those tasks, maybe I wouldn't be so uptight about having a bunch of bureaucrats determining what I needed to do with my own body. Maybe we should try that for a small segment of the population and see how that works, FIRST.

(You know, the military has all the good weapons, wonder what would happen if they turned them on the people that give them such crappy medical services year in and year out?)

These days, even Republicans are talking about keeping the "GOOD STUFF" of Obamacare, like coverage for "Pre-existing Conditions." Dude, seriously? Do you Congressmen think that everyone is an absolute moron? Every single illness, disease, or injury is a PRE-EXISTING CONDITION!!! Do you go to the doctor when you are well?

"Aw, man, I am feeling so danged good, I think that I'll roll down to the hospital and have an almost total stranger stick something in my mouth and and if I'm lucky, my butt, too!"

(You do notice they always do the mouth first, butt next, and then right back to the mouth? Did they swap the gloves or no? I was kinda all embarrassed and not really paying attention!)

The moment this whole "debate" will cease making me want to punt kittens will occur at the exact second where they pass legislation that says emergency rooms can turn criminal Mexicans away. Do you know why people go to the emergency room? Guess what the number one reason is? Hey! And guess how much those people DON'T pay for their visit?

I'll give you one guess who pays for those visits. I have just pointed out a medical services cost savings of forty-one BILLION dollars ($41,000,000,000.00) a year. I know, you are going to say that the doctors will start turning away patients. YES!!! I am saying that! That's what I want them to do, get the deadbeats out of the emergency room that have a stinkin' headache!!!

In case you were unaware, when "Single-Payer" is the law of the land, and it will be unless you blow up the phones of your Republican Congressmen, you will be forced to pay to make all the sexy occur on "people" like Bruce Transjenner. Squat and watch, that'll happen three months after the passage.

Anyhoo, ignore this post, words don't mean anything anymore, anyway.

Drive-by Blogging - Nothing is Mutually Exclusive

I have been hammering home a point for as long as I can remember, NOTHING, and I do mean NOTHING is mutually exclusive. Therein lies the problem with "Progressives." They only see the single problem to which they have turned their hideous gaze. Everything that is affected by their idiotic single-mindedness be damned! FULL STEAM AHEAD.

Here's a short butcher's list of how morons operate. The lowest paid employee doesn't make enough to support a family of twelve, so let's give him free food, a free home, free clothing, and a free education! Ignore the fact that for as long as we have been doing that, poverty has not been reduced a single percentage point. You would think that after fifty-three years, the poverty rate would go down at least a smidgen, but you would be wrong. It's because the federal government keeps RAISING the threshold to be classified as poor. It's funny though, "poor" people in the RAAAAACIST, fascist United States all have enough food to make them obese, sometimes numerous cars or SUVs, 75" flat-screen color tee-vees, and iPhones, but somehow they are still classified as "poor." As long as something is not rigidly defined (words mean something, you know) you cannot solve the hiccups along the way.

And let's keep spending more and more tax money on the poor, it AIN'T cost nuffin'!

Here's another fact that not one person can dispute, raising minimum wage makes everyone poorer. You see, when you take an arbitrary number and throw it at the least skilled person that you can find, without raising the salaries of the non-idiotarian, you make the non-idiotarian pay MORE for the very same things that they must purchase. The only people that experience, at BEST, a zero sum game, is the least capable worker you have. All of your more skilled employees have just taken it in the shorts to make the least capable employee THINK that you did something for him. Just so people with less than average intelligence understand, $10.00 buys more when minimum wage is $1.00 an hour than when it is $7.25 an hour. If you need further instruction on how that can be possible, email me at and maybe we can set up some anti-idiotarian lessons with my trusty, ol' cluebat.

Now, both of those topics have been geared to point out problems that are ALLEGEDLY experienced by "The Poor," yet everything that is done to attempt to alleviate the problem hurts everyone BUT the poor, which are not helped at all, anyway. Facts are curious things, huh?

So, how do we really help the poor? Of course, the answer is to teach them to do things that UNpoor people do. Simple, right? It actually is, but FIRST we must agree what UNpoor people do.

First thing: DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE. That seems simple, but to someone that has never had to work to survive, that is very hard to understand. If you (and your mama, and your grandmama, and your great grandmama) are on food stamps, housing assistance, education grants, etc., you might have no clue how much you actually make! Or you might not know the weight of the yoke you place on the people that are literally carrying you.

Second thing: If you want to buy something that you cannot afford currently, you either have to make more money or SAVE MONEY for that thing.

Third thing: Whopping buttloads of money are not going to make you happy, except in the short term. If your contentment depends on a free-flowing fountain of unlimited money, you have no chance to experience what peace truly is. Wonder why the majority of lottery winners are bankrupted quickly? Could it be that mainly poor people buy lottery tickets and by definition do not know how to handle money?

Quickly to make a point, in Mississippi, Median HOUSEHOLD Income is $36,919.00. So, if you get a Bachelors Degree in Education, according to the current pay scale, a teacher with ZERO years of experience makes $34,390.00 a year. Almost the total median income for a FAMILY!!! WOW! Teachers are raking in the jack!

Of course, their salary doesn't buy much because Minimum Wage is $7.25 an hour! And, oddly enough, nobody's salary is paying enough!!! A sixteen year old punk can go to work at McDonald's, work forty hours a week, and bring in $15,080.00 a year with ZERO education, ZERO experience, and ZERO importance, well other than making sure a basket goes into and come out of the fryer on time.

[Sidebar: If a sixteen year old punk goes into McDonald's and shows them that he can work like a beast, he is not going to be stuck at $7.25 an hour for very long.]

You see, the fact that you pay Smedrick or Julio or Frank a whopping $7.25 for mindless labor ROBS YOUR TEACHERS ANNNNND, everyone that makes more than minimum wage.

Again, nothing is mutually exclusive, so everything that a school system has to purchase has gone up in direct proportion to the minimum wage because raw materials, products, services, books, paper, pencils, Van Halen albums, etc. cost more when you raise the minimum wage. Instead of continually clamoring for more money for teachers or education or roads or fidget spinners, why not simply begin to address the REAL ACTUAL PROBLEMS?

Now, if you want to help raise people from poverty, cut off the magic money fountain of welfare, cut the federally mandatory minimum wage to TRUE minimum wage, which is ZERO, and DEMAND parental accountability for their children. Furthermore, if there is a child that is disrupting class, get rid of them. Plain and simple, if they do not want to learn, then give them what they want. I can absolutely guarantee that the results will not be any different for that child, but they will be monumentally different for the children that do want to learn.

Here's a couple of little nuggets to chew on for a minute, as well. If someone is a staunch advocate of abortion, what do you think that they think of older children? If they think that it is just hunky-dory to slaughter babies, why would you listen to a single thing that they said about school age children? Don't you acknowledge the fact that if they hate babies enough to kill them, they are probably going to hate school age children even more?

"Oh, but you have to take into account what they are saying about XYZ, even though they are a horrible human being!" Um, no, actually, the exact opposite of that is true. You see, Adolf Hitler, arguably the worst person of the 1900s, was an animal lover. Would you take dog grooming tips from Hitler and say, "Oh, he knows the best way to trim their toenails, oh, I know he slaughtered six million Jews, but just look at Cleopatra's mane!!!"

Now, I said all that above to say this, we spend plenty of money on education, more than plenty, actually. What we need to do with the money that we do spend is make sure that it is accomplishing what it is supposed to accomplish. I think that I pointed out in a prior post the level of funding the school receives where my wife teaches and my kids attend. There is something like 148 school districts in Mississippi, but only three spend less than my local school district. Oddly enough, two of those three districts are A schools, the other is a B. Of the twenty schools that spend the most money per student, only two have better than a C. Weird, huh?

Oh, but don't take my word for that, check it out for yourself.

Please take the time to comment or not, I just do not care about solving these types of problems anymore. You can't fix stupid and there's a buttload of it everywhere you turn.
