This morning, as I was driving to Los Angeles City Hall for a protest against Mayor Garcetti's welcoming of illegal alien children to the city, I heard about our President’s meeting with the presidents of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. Supposedly, they were to discuss a solution to stop the illegal flood of those countries' citizens into the US. Apparently, our President thinks the best way to stop this invasion is to grant all these illegals refugee status, and to send our planes to bring them here from Central America. Really? Can someone, please, explain to me how that will stop the invasion? If they don’t have to pay "coyotes" and travel across Mexico, it'll be easier, not harder, for them to invade America... And on OUR dime!
That’s Obama’s solution? That’s the best he can do to stop illegal aliens from flooding our country? I’m not a world leader, but even I can come up with a better idea than that! I’d tell those presidents they need to go on television and tell their citizens they are being lied to, that America has not changed its laws, and they shouldn’t spend their money traveling across Mexico, because they’ll be sent right back! I’d tell them that until they stop their citizens from violating our sovereignty, they will receive no foreign aid, and all trade with them will be stopped. You and I know that if Obama really wanted this to stop, he could stop it NOW.

After listening to Hillary Clinton bemoaning the fact that she and Bill had no money when they left the White House, and seeing how much they now earn per speech, I started thinking. Most people today hear, but rarely question or think.
George Washington was a wealthy man in his day. Mt. Vernon was a large estate, and he was quite comfortable.
I don’t remember any fuss about Democrat John F. Kennedy’s money when he ran for president. But back then, there was a strong middle class, and class warfare wasn’t a big deal.

The first time I heard the claim that man was causing global warming, I thought it was a joke. When I realized that not only weren’t they joking, they were entirely deadly serious, I had to know why. They claimed CO2 was responsible for all kinds of evils, but I knew that CO2 was a nutrient necessary for life on our planet. I also knew that CO2 is emitted by every living creature in nearly everything we do. Reducing CO2 would require de-industrializing our country, destroying our economy, and reducing crop output. It would lead to deaths of living creatures. I had to learn as much as I could about this “global warming”, and find out what was behind it. For the last ten years or so, I have been reading, researching, and listening to actual scientists who study these disciplines.

My friend Clarence asked me if I had seen “America” and if I did, did I like it. This is what I told him.
I cried through most of it. Listening to Americans trash America is hard to take. I'm overwhelmed by the idea that we are being brought down from within. That's what Khrushchev said would happen. He said they (progressives aka communists) would feed us socialism a little at a time.
One of the criticisms of the movie was that it trivialized slavery. I didn't see anything that trivialized slavery, but what I assume they are talking about is that it was put in perspective. The left hates that. Slavery, especially, can’t be put in perspective. All must acknowledge that slavery was the most evil act since the beginning of time and all white men are to blame. Where would the race baiters be if white men stopped accepting blame for slavery?

Karen Bass just loves us. She is always so-o-o-o happy to see us show up. She makes sure to point us out to the rest of her constituents. There is a group of us that tries to go to all her townhalls. Yes, we are aware that she doesn’t give a rat's ass what we think. While we do get perverse pleasure out of being a thorn in her side, we aren’t there for her, we are there for her constituents. If we can influence even one person ~ which we have done ~ it’s worth the effort.
Before the Karen Bass townhall, the LA-Santa Monica Tea Party had Trevor Loudon, author of “The Enemies Within”, speak at their meeting. He is from New Zealand, and has previously written a book on Obama’s radical associations. His new book names many of the radicals in our government. He said we may wonder why a New Zealander would care so much about the fate of America, but if America falls, so will the rest of the Western countries. America has been the peacekeeper of the world. Who better? What other country has been as generous as America?

The other day, I was reminiscing about the old cars in the 1950s. I remember the anticipation of the new models coming out for the next year, which occurred somewhere around the late fall, I think. Anyway, it was an exciting time.
The major car brands for the average citizen were Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Buick, and Pontiac, and you could easily recognize the year and model. You would say, “Oh, there’s the new Chevrolet Impala or Ford Falcon.” The Buick had a distinctive line on the side of their cars that was always there, although it may vary a little from year to year, but you knew it was a Buick. Maybe that’s why they’re considered “classics” today.

WASHINGTON – Ann Coil was leading a Tea Party meeting of 40 people in Santa Ana when text alerts started to ping across the room – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was losing his Virginia primary to an unknown and comparatively unfunded Tea Party rival.
Big time. Big surprise.
“Nobody saw it coming – we weren’t watching the polls or anything until it started happening,” Coil recalled Wednesday. She saw the outcome as a “shot across the bow” to what is known as the more moderate “establishment” wing of the Republican Party and a sign of new momentum for the Tea Party.
Mark Sonnenklar, city coordinator for the Los Angeles Tea Party group Hancock Park Patriots, said he was very excited that Cantor lost in the primary election because it may have sparked a “revolution in this country.”
“What it does is show people in Los Angeles what can be done when the grassroots, regular people come together to get something done to throw out a member of the establishment who wasn’t listening to the people. It’s a confirmation of the power of the grassroots in America and California,” Sonnenklar said.

It never ceases to amaze me that some great people, who have lived in this world throughout our history, have had a marvelous understanding of human nature. They see certain traits in individuals over and over again, and some writers have incorporated those traits into their characters. One such writer is the incomparable William Shakespeare, and his timeless character is none other than Lady Macbeth.
For those who are unfamiliar with the story of Macbeth, basically, it’s about a general (Macbeth), who is given a prediction by the witches that he will replace the present king and become King of Scotland. This will be preceded by a noble title first – thane of Cawdor. Because of Macbeth’s success against Scotland’s enemies, he receives that title after hearing about it from the witches. This convinces him that the witches’ predictions are true. He tells his wife, Lady Macbeth, who immediately encourages Macbeth to devise a plot to murder King Duncan, and blame it on unsuspecting chamberlains, who are later killed by Macbeth as well. There are more predictions in the play, and the plot continues, until Duncan’s murder is avenged by his son and others, and Macbeth and Lady Macbeth suffer in the end for what they did.

It's been a few decades since Hollywood went off the rails, & began feeding its audiences a shameless diet of leftist propaganda, seasoned with a generous dollop of debauchery. In response, many of us have stopped forking over our hard-earned dollars, & turned our attention to television, where a few wholesome shows enjoy unprecedented success by rising above the muck.
