I Protest! Therefore, I Am!!

I wonder if making a sign about not supporting someone’s protest and standing in front of them screaming obscenities and chanting repeatedly that their protest is annoying, would make them stop protesting.   

Either that, or…

maybe I should stand a few feet away from them with a sign that reads, “Honk if you like Beer” to make them think they are supported by all the people driving by who honk after reading my sign.

Reagan’s America:

Personally, I’d like to live in Reagan’s America again.  

It sadden’s me that we’ll probably never have that safety again in my lifetime.

Why the Electoral College Works

electoral-college-map

Here in the United States we use something called the Electoral college to choose our President.

Each state has a certain number of persons who are called “electors” that make up the Electoral College.  They are supposed to cast their vote based on the results of the overall vote count in their state.  

Contrary to popular belief, the popular vote actually does come into play, just not in the way most people would like it to, and for that reason the electoral college gets a bad rap.  

Some say that it’s outdated, others claim that it’s confusing, unfair or that it should be done away with completely; but I don’t agree because I believe that the electoral college was originally devised and well suited to its purpose.  

What purpose is that, you ask?  It’s three-fold.  

1) To make sure that states with a large population wouldn’t dominate the outcome of every Presidential election.

2) That every single state, no matter the population, would have a voice in who was elected president of the United States of America.

and 

3) That candidates would be forced to campaign in every single state and not just a select few that would give them the popular vote.  

And, my dear cattle, Number Three is where Hillary Clinton pathetically failed in her campaign and where Donald Trump pathetically succeeded.  

Because even though Hillary had 670,000+ more overall total votes than Donald Trump . . . Trump actually won the popular vote in more states: Trump – 31 versus Clinton – 19,  which means, that the Electoral College succeeded in fulfilling purpose #1, purpose #2 and yes, even purpose #3.

Basically, the electoral college comes down to this:  Win more states, win the presidency.  Lose more states . . . well. . . I think you get the point.

If it were up to the Overall popular vote count alone, states like California, Florida, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas would dominate the elections and the candidates would only campaign in those states where they know they would receive the most votes.  

Conversely, smaller populated states like Wyoming, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Idaho and Montana would be left out completely.

I know there are a lot of pathetic followers jumping on the bandwagon of electoral college outdatedness and who think the electoral college is a bad thing; heck, even Donald Trump thinks so . . . or he thought so, I’m not sure at this point . . . but either way the fact still remains, the more populous states shouldn’t have a greater influence in who gets elected and the electoral college works for that very reason!!

Every single state should have a voice!  

With that said…I want to add this:  I did not vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, but IF those individuals who cast a vote in the electoral college don’t or won’t vote the way the citizens in their respective states directed them to vote, then it should be considered an act of treachery against what these United States stand for:  a nation of the people, by the people and for the people . . .  and that pathetic act of casting a vote against the citizen’s wishes should be considered an act of treason.  

Just my pathetic two cents

Crying and Politics

no-crying-in-politics1

Here’s a pathetic tidbit that I for one didn’t expect to read.  

I happened upon a pathetic report on Newsmax, stating that Hillarity Clinton “couldn’t stop crying” once she learned of her loss to Donald “asshat” Trump on Tuesday.  

Here’s the condensed version:  

“Best-selling conservative author Ed Klein told Newsmax TV on Wednesday that he heard from a close friend of Hillary Clinton that she “couldn’t stop crying” after learning of her loss to Donald Trump on Tuesday night.  

“About 6:30 Wednesday morning she called an old friend.  She was crying . . . inconsolably.  She just couldn’t stop crying.  It was even hard to understand what she was saying, she was crying so hard.”

“Eventually,” he continued, “her friend said she could make out that she was blaming James Comey for her loss and the President of the United States for not doing enough.”

Boy howdy did I have her pictured all wrong!  

Personally, that night I pictured her pouring a shot of whiskey, lighting up a Cuban cigar and asking one of her lackeys to rub her feet and shoulders while she slowly slipped away into whatever pathetic nightmarish world she can summon.   

Someone really should have told her that there’s no crying in politics.  

And what’s even more pathetic is that in the midst of that crying she apparently blamed everyone else but herself for the loss.

The fact that Hillary didn’t (or doesn’t) consider that she has only herself to blame for losing to an Ass-hat is really pathetic, and kinda makes me think even less of her than I already do.  

Disclaimer:  I question the validity of the Newsmax story, but for the sake of humor I went ahead and posted this.  

Wisdom

Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by the king for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right.  

For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men.  

Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.  

Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.”

 1 Peter 2:13-16

I do not, nor will I ever, understand why those verses are so difficult for you dumb-ass people to follow.
