the 25 reasons i'm not a democrat

friday, october 26th, 2018

there are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that...

1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history.

2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10.

3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence.

4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am not on your side.

5. Immigration is only good for America under certain conditions. The number of people coming in each year needs to be controlled and reasonable; immigrants should be able to support themselves without getting on the dole and we should heavily emphasize assimilation.

6. You should laugh at the idea of “white guilt.” People should not feel guilty because of their race, sex, or something their ancestors did.

7. Obamacare has driven health care costs through the roof, made premiums much higher, and has hurt the vast majority of middle-class Americans.

8. Looting is wrong. Period. 100 percent of the time. Unless there’s a zombie apocalypse. Is there a zombie apocalypse happening right now? No? Then you are scum if you loot.

9. There are two genders and you can’t change the one you are born with no matter how many surgeries, hormones, and weird pronouns that you apply to yourself. Also, those genders should use different bathrooms and shouldn’t be competing against each other in athletic endeavors.

10. “Climate change” is something that happens naturally and we need decades more of research and scientific advancement before we know how much of a role man is playing and what, if anything, we should do about it.

11. Asking people to show a government ID when they vote is just common sense if you really care about stopping election fraud.

12. America is not a racist country and is probably the best place on earth to live if you are a minority.

13. Refusing to stand for the flag is unpatriotic, disrespectful, and it harms any cause it’s associated with.

14. Wearing black masks, committing vandalism, and jumping people five-on-one like cowards is for losers, fascists, and criminals.

15. We need to have borders. I believe we need to enforce those borders, preferably with a wall. I believe people who cross those borders illegally are criminals who AT A MINIMUM deserve to be deported.

16. People should be judged individually on their own merits, not because of their race, color, or sexual orientation.

17. We don’t need to protect people from dangerous IDEAS. Instead, we need to make a case for why the ideas are “dangerous” and provide a better alternative.

18. There are no oppressed Americans.

19. Taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding gun owners makes us less safe and putting more guns in the hands of responsible Americans makes us safer.

20. Appropriating the best parts of other cultures is a good thing.

21. Hillary turned out to be the worst presidential candidate of all time and Barack Obama was the worst American president of all time, although Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter were nearly as mediocre.

22. Slavery is the second greatest evil committed by America as a nation behind abortion.

23. There is no such thing as a “patriarchy.” In fact, this is probably the least patriarchal time in all of American history.

24. The South is a great place to live with just as many wonderful people as anywhere else in the country, IF NOT MORE. Except for Alabama. Screw Alabama. Just kidding, Alabama. Don’t let Lynyrd Skynyrd write a song about me.

25. Liberalism, socialism, communism, fascism, and Nazism are all branches of the same rotten tree and will lead to roughly similar bloody and totalitarian outcomes if given enough time and power.

A Day In The Life.

I "slept-in" until 5:30a on Friday, made a pot of outrageous Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – Clydesdale 100% Certified 16 oz, (Turkish Powder Grind) which I treat myself to once a year. Mmmmmmmmmmm, that's good stuff. 32°F when I left Dad's ol' condo at 6:30a, stopped at Rutter's to get some coffee-to-go, and got in around 7a. A "warm, wet Winter" coming? Don't bet on it. Well shit, my Amana furnace quit working. I threw on-off switches and fusebox breakers; nothing happened. I called Hopewell HVAC, down south in Winterstown just 2 miles from my Ol' Garden Center & Nursery in 2010, who'd installed it and a 2-ton Amana AC unit, dug out the file and found that I had 3yrs to go on a 10yr full parts and labor warranty. The service tech guy replaced the "inducer unit", and I was back in business.

If time is infinite, why is there never enough of it?

Ed the installer from Tammie's office, from Tammie's office showed-up with a new battery for Motorized Blind #1, and got it working. Jeff, Andrew and Mica from Jeff's Home Projects unexpectedly showed-up and worked on the "To Do List" items, so it was a busy day. Becky also stopped by to see the new couch and sculpture pedestal. I've ordered 2 others: 18"x18"x18" and an 18"x18"x24" white laminate tables for use in the "new" condo layout. Leaving my condo at 7:30p, I got to Dad's former condo, had 3 beers, took my Rx pills, and went to sleep.

Mr POTUS, get America the fuck out of that shithole, Afghanistan: poison the poppy/opium fields, nuke the cities and all muzzie (SPIT!) religious sites, and bring our Troops home, dammit!

Say a word out of line, and you find that the friends you had, are gone forever. Forever.

Up at 3a, I made a pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – Clydesdale 100% Certified 16 oz, (Turkish Powder Grind), took my morning/afternoon Rx pills, noticed the frost outside, and drove to my condo to get some cleaning done, "To Do Lists" revised for the carpet/flooring crews and painters, and make a trip to Essis Flooring at 10a, when he opened. That done and set for Thursday, Sherry stopped by for a couple hour visit, and I watched Mecum Auto Auctions, hung some pics, and left for Dad's condo at 7:30p. I stopped to get a 6-pack of Yuengling Premium Beer, and crashed early. I was tired from getting-up so early today.

On Sunday, I slept-in until 7a, had 3 mugs of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – Clydesdale 100% Certified 16 oz, (Turkish Powder Grind), took a nice, long, hot shower, and left around 8a, before everyone else was on the roads. Windy and 34°F cold, yeah; I'm ready for Winter. I had another pound of that delicious coffee at my condo, so I made and other pot with my Chemex® Drip System, where Brewing Is An Art Form. The local WSBA am-fm station has WMAL's "Chris Plante Show" on from 9-12noon on Sundays, so I listened-in. I drove over to Becky's condo, next to Dad's former condo, where I'm staying until mine is finished, to get some of Dad's "things" to use and keep here. The US Grand Prix Race in Texas was on at 1p.

By noon, it'd only warmed-up to a very windy and 44°F cold. Becky told me that we had massive t-storm and heavy winds overnight, but I slept so soundly that I didn't wake-up, as I usually do during storms. I watched the F-1 US Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas race course, from Austin, TX, did some downstairs condo chores, wrapped-up around 5p, and stopped at Mickey-Ds to get 2 large fries to take back, to cook with the Allen Bros SteakBurgers and Crabcakes, for dinner for Becky and myself. No dessert tonite; we were full. Just Dad's HP laptop, 2 beers, my Rx pills and to sleep by 9p.

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true.

Had enough? Me too.

Awake from a weird dream at 4a on Monday, I got up, made Blue Mountain coffee, had some smokes, and tried to reflect on part of the dream I remembered. (A guy in a white BMW slammed on his brakes in front of me, I plowed into the rear of the car, crushing it, tried to call 9-1-1, but the cellphone keys fell off. I walked to a nearby village, but only dogs answered the door and spoke broken-English, telling me they had no phones I could borrow. I can't remember the rest right now...) Screw it; just a dream. 34°F and frost, I drove to Rutter's to fuel-up the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and then to my condo. I had stops to make at Michael's to get some Shelley Family pics rematted/reframed, and a stop at Essis Flooring to check to non-slip padding for the 7 oriental rugs, coming Thursday.

I arranged for my 2 cleaning ladies to come in next Wednesday, the day before I have another ERCP Operation at Hershey Medical Center, and get my Master BR cleaned, bed changed etc, so I can come home to my own bed. We're into almost 6 weeks on this project, with Essis being the major delay. The painters were in all afternoon, doing touch-ups, electrical etc. Now, we have an "electrical gremlin" in some of the upstairs switches and outlets; a super-qualified electrician is being brought-in to troubleshoot and fix it. I left at 6:30p, had a couple beers, took my pills and went to bed at 7:30p.

God's greatest gift to me, was making me heterosexual.

Have you seen the "new demokkkRAT campaign ad" yet, on TV? Here it is. Heh. I sure hope you're voting on Tuesday, November 6th.

Tuesday was a relaxing day, with no subcontractors in, but I had a to repair and Home Depot came to the rescue with the missing part. Becky stopped by with Fall Squash Soup and BLT Sandwiches from the local Panera store, my 5 new Mission Oak Frame Directors Chairs arrived and I easily assembled them, and I stayed to do paperwork until 7p. Then back to the other condo, took my pills, had a couple of beers, played on Dad's old, now cleaned-off laptop, and went to sleep at 9p.

I slept-in until 6a on Wednesday, which was nice for a change, made the awesome Blue Mountain Coffee, and left at 7a. I'm having a three week nightmare of not being able to transfer $300k from my current IRA in my now-former investment company, to Wells Fargo Bank. I saved about 5% of its value by not being in the market – the $300k is in cash but still is part of the IRA, so no IRA tax penalty, and no market losses/gains – and I got on the phone with my former broker, who went after W-F Bank, like a Pitbull, and got it done. Then, my LiftMaster Garage Door myQ opener quit working. I called the installer company, in Middletown, and they wanted $215/hr for an emergency service call. Fuck that. I called the local LiftMaster dealer in York, and they wanted $78/hr, so they'll here on Monday 29th. After playing with it for an hour, I fixed it myself by cleaning and realigning the 3 sensors, and canceled the service app't. After Rush from 12-3p, I listened to Savage until 6p. The DJIA tumbled 600+ points, and the Nasdaq Composite Index lapsed 300+ points into a major correction. Home by 7p, I had the carpeting/flooring crew in at 10a, to get the 2 bedrooms' carpet changed, and begin the clean-up process in this place, so I can move back in. After setting-up the coffee machine for morning, I had a few beers, fired-up the HP laptop, took the Rx pills and went to sleep at 9p.

It occurred to me that this phony bomb scare FALSE FLAG is aimed at DIVERTING the media's and public's attention AWAY FROM THE INVASION coming from Mexico and also to GENERATE SYMPATHY FOR THE demonkkkRATs AHEAD OF THE MIDTERM ELECTION! This PHONY BOMB scare seeks to paint Conservatives as a VIOLENT MOB. Watch CNN and the other Deep State puppets pound this story to DEATH. WHAT ABOUT THE INVASION FROM MEXICO? WILL THAT LOSING STORY FOR THE demonkkkRATs PARTY NOW DISAPPEAR? Will the sender of these alleged bombs turn out to be a George Soros operative or DNC HACK? How can the media say the bomb maker "knew what he was doing" while knowing NONE of these supposed devices detonated? Saul Alinsky is still at work, apparently. This PHONY BOMB SCARE is right out of his playbook. Proper pipe bombs don't have wires connected to both ends. That's dumb. You can find timers/remote control receivers WAY smaller than whatever that white box is. A proper timer would best be stored inside the pipe, making it fully-encapsulated. That thing is just silly looking. "Hoax Devices" are FAR more common than real ones. In which case, we should ask ourselves what the motives of the "bomber" are and "who benefits?" Go ahead. Think deeply and critically. Bottom Line: Whoever made that wanted it to be painfully obvious to anyone and everyone that it's a "bomb." This is nearly the same as a bundle of road flares wrapped together with an old-timey alarm clock ticking away. It's a False Flag Op.

So many faces in and out of my life. Some will last; some will just be now and then.

Up at 5:30a on Thursday, I made coffee, checked the weather and news on the HP laptop, 31°F (no frost; too cloudy) when I left Dad's ol' condo for my condo, made another Chemex® Carafe of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – Clydesdale 100% Certified 16 oz, (Turkish Powder Grind), did a few chores, installed the new air deflectors over the new floor vents, in the finished rooms, and got things ready for the carpet crews. By 8a, the cloudy skies cleared, I took the garbage and recyclables to the front curb, to make room for the outgoing and incoming carpeting. They arrived at 10a, with Ed Essis, owner, and moved the 9 repaired and cleaned, magnificent oriental rugs from Mom & Dad's Stone Home on Frelen Rd. Looks great! I went to Best Buy and ordered the Samsung 82" HD-4 TV, to be installed on the Living Room wall, on Nov 14th.

Everyone was leaving around 3, when we noticed 2 parallel black streaks on the new carpet steps, the installers tried to clean them off, and Ed Essis came over to check it, and will get a rug cleaning company to come in and try to get rid of the black marks. Otherwise, all that stair, landing and loft carpeting will have to be replaced, since it's one massive piece. Shit, it's always something. I listened to Savage until 6p, and left for the other condo. I fired-up the laptop, had some beers, took my pills and went to sleep around 9p.

Now, I have to work on re-arranging furniture and hanging pictures. Tomorrow starts another week in the "Journal", and I'll get started, one room at a time, starting with my Master BR, so I can move back in.

Fake Liberal Media BS

The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.

Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.

Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.

Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is deep!
