This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

A brief word before you vote.

This is for the sincere liberals (not Leftists), democrats (not Progressive Socialists) and Independents, who want to improve California and the U.S.A., rather than usurp them or bring them down for personal or ideological gain.

First, "moonbeam" Brown and "don't call me Ma'am" Boxer are leading, but many polls have obviously been cooked, just like the “Global Warming” and “jobs created or saved” numbers, which have already been exposed.  Until last week, all results in both races were tied or favored the Republicans, and the only things that changed were two Boxer ads and a Brown smear being discredited.  In fact, both Meg Whitman  and Carley Fiorina are still within reach of a good, pro-jobs, pro-California turnout.  The DNC and CaDem know that too many of us disbelieve them and are checking facts for ourselves.  Union members already know that their bosses are skimming millions for themselves and contributing their dues to campaigns they don’t believe in.  The Progressives that took over the Democratic Party can’t have that.  Too many false claims and attacks have failed, and their power and fortunes are at risk.

You know people who have no actual issues or facts, and just shout slogans or insults.  They hope you will not join others and research actual laws, events and records, realizing that you have been used.  They hope you will vote as they tell you to, since they think you are not smart enough to make decisions on your own.  The President of the United States recently ordered all Latinos to vote to “punish our enemies” - - who thinks like that?  Latinos and other minorities don’t need Progressive (or even conservative) orders, just honest information

Finally, the Left expects to reduce the massive surge of energy of the combined independents and conservatives.  They want to discourage us from bothering to vote in a “lost cause”.  Sorry - - having scrubbed most of the slime from the Republican Party in the primaries, we are eager to sign in and vote for sensible patriots, regardless of the letter behind their name.  Our kids depend on it.
It’s NOVEMBER, and we remember.

In case you don't get it...

...just in case you were brought up by hippies and educated by revisionist Socialists, here's something you should try to absorb:

The Pledge of Allegiance (being a promise to strive towards the ideals of America, not an endorsement of every mistake or bad actor).  Red Skelton was the most loved, most gentle and empathetic comedian of the '50s and '60s.

[thanks to ImgnNoLibs and YouTube]

The story of the Star Spangled Banner (Pt 1).  Attacked for the second time by the world's greatest super-power, Americans stand to defend their families' freedom.

[thanks to 525wireman and YouTube]

The Star Spangled Banner (Pt 2).  Listen carefully to the reason why the flag flew at an angle.

[thanks to lorussj and YouTube]

If you don't understand yet, go fall in REAL love, or have some kids, or something else worth dying to keep free.  Maybe a Constitutional Republic that was the first in the world to acknowledge the rights endowed by our Creator.

God bless America!

And now, a word from...

...some sensible gay friends* :

[thanks to GoProud]

Bwaaa-ha-ha-ha-haa....  >snif<
Sorry, sometimes even old wise guys burst out laughing.

*no kidding: GoProud appears to be a gay advocacy group.  Proof that not all gays are helpless, mindless tools of the left - - and this bunch at least is creative and humorous. If they just threw in the suicidal, Socialist taxing, spending and the oligarchal Constitution shredding, this would be the perfect political ad.

Sooo... what’s the diff?

Democrat, conservative, Republican, Socialist, Progressive… what’s the difference?  Are any of them really so bad, or better than the others?  The dictionary will tell you basically that conservative means ‘changing carefully’ while liberal means ‘with less care’.

Republicans blew it, going along with the growth of government and running up the deficit and debt.  Of course, that includes the cost of defense after 9-11.  The recession started under Bush.  However, it was engineered by the Democratic-controlled congress (which controls spending and regulations).  In fact, the designers of the mortgage collapse (that caused the recession), Dodd and Frank, are still in office.  The worst of the Republicans were “scrubbed” from the GOP by the Tea Party surge in the primaries.  Dems don’t seem to have done that.

Under Obama (in an unprecedented string of “crises” and “emergencies”) the deficit has quadrupled and the debt is now more than every president from Washington through Clinton.  Combined.  Every man, woman and child in America has a $40,000 share of the debt, which will more than double by 2015.  But it’s okay, because he put all the bribes, threats, back-room deals and blockading of Republican amendments and motions on C-Span.  While respecting the will of the people.  Right?

Let’s compare a few State candidates.  Jerry Brown, in his first go at Governor, appointed a rabid, Leftist, anti-death penalty California Supreme Court Chief Justice (Rose Bird), who was so radical that she was the only one ever voted out of office.  He also opposed Prop 13 as a “fraud” in 1978, then rushed to “support it” when it was supported by an overwhelming majority.  Now he supports propositions to scrap it, or subvert it in hidden language. He favors huge unions (government or private) and their bloated pensions and once stated that he'd prefer everyone to be on welfare or unemployment.

As Attorney General, Brown (who never held a real job) went after kids’ bounce-houses, but ignores illegal immigration.  The farce of a defense that he mounted for the peoples’ twice-voted Prop 8 was only exceeded by the melodrama he arranged with Gloria Allred.  She outed an illegal alien, revealing her forgeries on TV while proving that Whitman paid her double the going rate for a housekeeper.  It seems that in immediately firing “Nikki” upon discovery (as required by law), Whitman “knowingly employed her for years” or “cheated her”.  Or failed to “profile” Nikki, or fire her over a letter from Social Security, which she never saw and says that it is not proof of any wrongdoing and you can’t fire over it.  Or something.

Whitman, meanwhile, was not political (didn’t even vote for several years), but grew a small company into the e-Bay giant and is fiscally conservative and level-headed.  She shattered the lies about her “raising the overhead” of the company that she more than quintupled in size.

Carly Fiorina has been hit by the same Progressive lie #1, trying to blame her for laying off 30,000, whilr creating hundreds of thousands of jobs at HP, while , after acquiring Compaq Inc and resizing.  They even said that upgrading the company fleet of aging planes was her personal greed, and she raised her own pay, rather than HP’s independent salary board.

On the other hand, Barbara Boxer supported California's job-killing Leftis lunge as well as the federal Progressive economic fiasco, which cost Americans over 5 million jobs and trillions of dollars.  She interrupted a combat General so she could be called “Senator” rather than “Ma’am”.   “Ma’am” is protocol for female generals, housewives and the Queen of England, but not Barbara Boxer, because she works so hard.  Closer to home, she supports maintaining the political cutoff of irrigation water to our San Joaquin Valley, raising our food prices and pushing unemployment past 40%.  For some smelt.

It seems that Socialists, from Marxists to Maoists to National Socialists (NAZIs) make a habit of lying, disregarding their people and running their countries into the ground for personal gain (remember that, since their public writings are for misleading "the masses", the opposite appears in print).  Fidel Castro now admits that “Communism doesn’t even work in Cuba”, which has been abusing its enslaved people since Che roamed around murdering helpless prisoners.  Of course, Cuba’s tens of thousands can’t compare to Pol Pot’s millions, Hitler’s 15 million, Stalin’s 35 million or Mao’s 70 million victims (not including predecessors’ or successors’ murders, or wars they caused).

Socialist economics, sometimes called Keynesian or “State Capitalism” has never worked.  No Socialist state has ever stayed anti-capitalist and survived more than 70 years.  They extend their run by increased use of slave labor, and then either go semi-capitalist (like China) or collapse of their own weight.  The European Union is a current example.  Though “soft socialists”, they have built up their entitlements and “social justice” systems until they have run out of other people’ money.  Entrepreneurs are hard to find, the rich Ologarchs won't let their money be "redistributed" and the money-for-nothing unions are rioting.  They have been told that they need to cut the budgets (government jobs, free services, medical care, early retirement, etc) in England, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece, etc.  Red flags and burning cars and buildings (some with employees still inside) are seen everywhere except on “mainstream media”.

Our Democratic incumbents, seeing all this and the fact that the people are catching on, have little to run on, and avoid contact with Obama, Reid and Pelosi.  They call conservatives “extreme” (look up “mutually exclusive”) and stick to bald face lies and smears. They say they opposed the health care, auto industry and banking takeovers.  They promise to “fix” the massive, convoluted, unconstitutional, hidden funding “health care” fiasco, when they could have supported the simple bills (and hundreds of amendments) that Republicans introduced, which they shot down.  Bills that would prohibit exclusion of pre-existing conditions, cap costs, open up interstate competition and cover all legal residents in risk pools.

Republicans, called “the party of No” by the Progressives, now promise to be more conservative; the party of “Stop” until they can repeal the most dangerous of the Socialist laws.

Unemployment never dropped below the point that Progressives promised that “stimulus” would keep it from reaching (8%).  Even with billions piled atop trillions and their “creative math”, it’s back above 10%.  And if you cross Leftist bosses, they just dump you via cel phone, like former USDA supervisor Shirley Sherrod and NPR radio analyst Juan Williams.  No investigation, no personal meeting, no warning, no rights, just a 1.8 million dollar "donation for more journalists" from George Soros.  A certain conservative cable channel snapped up the liberal-but-honest Williams.

I guess there is a difference. Better defend yourself... vote on November 2nd.

We surround and outnumber  the Socialists.  Do not let them intimidate you!  Fly the flag!  Say the Pledge!  Sing the Star Spangled Banner out loud!

The United States of America, with all it's faults, is still the bulwark of freedom for the world.  We are feared only by the tyrants, thugs and charlatans that would enslave others, and the unfortunates that they lie to.  We have freed more oppressed peoples - at greater cost in blood;  freely given more disaster aid, charity and relief than any other country - and most of them combined; lead the way toward more freedom and equality around the globe, and been the greatest powerhouse of industry and prosperity (even for the "poor" with color TVs and cel phones) than any other country, despite 100 years of Socialist sabotage, in the history of the world.  Under God!

Election day is Tuesday, November 2nd.  DEFEND YOURSELF,  V O T E ! !
