The Difference Between The Right And The Left

I have sat quietly watching the Supreme Court decisions unfold in June. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I was happy to see the fact that the state of New York, which quite frankly I’ve always viewed as not just liberal but run by a bunch of narcissistic idiots that would never be allowed to even run for office in another state, get their anti-gun carry law banned. And I was happy that a “right” that was never granted by the Constitution (abortion) was overturned and given it’s rightful place back to the states, as should have happened some 50 years ago.

But what all of this has taught me is the overriding difference between the left and the right.

When the right has something passed that they don’t like, they go along with it until it can be changed. Oh, they may hold peaceful (that should have been underlined, in bold and in Italics!) rallies, as the pro-life group had done with abortion for decades. But they don’t riot in the streets. They don’t threaten bodily harm to the members of the high court. They don’t cry and weep incessantly like we’ve seen over the past few weeks. They go with the flow, gather up their members and when the time is right they change it.

What the left does is hold riots. They threaten. They go to violence almost immediately. If you don’t go along with what the left wants on an issue, you’re “cancelled” or banned. You’re the pariah. You’re the problem. It doesn’t matter that what they want makes no sense. It doesn’t matter that what they want is wrong. That doesn’t have anything to do with it. They want some crazy idea to be thrust, and they are going to spin it as “saving the children” (well, not in abortion’s case), or taking medicine or food out of grandma’s mouth. But they never give you both sides of the equation. Just because in the New York case, people can carry guns now without going through an arduous process, they think it’s going to lead to more crime. And the liberal media is going to highlight any time there is a shooting anywhere in the state, just wait.

As far as abortion is concerned, the left has always been more about protecting a non-existing “right” of women’s ability to choose what to do with her own body, rather than protecting the life of the unborn within that body. They knew they could never win an argument if killing a baby was a part of it, so they made it about “women’s health”. It’s not about women’s health. It’s about eliminating a pregnancy without regard to what they are actually doing so the women who are doing it don’t feel ashamed or guilty for killing a baby.

Of course, there are other differences as well. There’s the whole large government vs. small government argument. And you’ve got the states rights vs. federal government argument (which I thought the 10th Amendment answered quite clearly). And they don’t accept any argument that runs counter to their addle-minded way of thinking.

One of the best arguments I heard over the few weeks was, “Guns are in the Constitution. Abortion is not. Period.” Tough to argue with that one.

And until we get the youth of America educated properly, and not indoctrinated in our public schools, this fallacy of whatever I believe is right and what you prove to me that it isn’t right is dead wrong and you don’t deserve to live! has to be eliminated from our society.

You Know It’s Bad When…

Somehow, and I can’t for the life of me figure out how, Joe Biden can’t get a win. Regardless what he does, regardless what he says, regardless if he stumbles or not, the guy just can’t connect with the American people. Hell, he can’t even connect to members of his own party, much less the media.

And you know it’s bad when the old grey lady of journalism, the New York Times questions Biden’s abilities to lead. And they have.

Oh, it was a couple of weeks ago, but liberal news media outlets all over the country have begun to dump on Biden. The NYT released a report saying that Biden may be too old to lead the country, shuffles his feet, and mumbles incoherently. I think what started it all is when the White House had to reschedule Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia, basically because it was too stressful on the President to make the 10 day trek to beg for more Saudi oil (when he himself has shut down drilling in this country).

You see it pretty much everywhere in everything Biden does. He has to have cheat cards when addressing the press. He uses them to find his seat, to say “Hello!”, or to leave an event. He needs an Easter Bunny to lead him away from reporters and to keep him from talking policy. You see him reading a teleprompter commanding him to “repeat the line” and he actually reads, “repeat the line”, as if he didn’t know it was an instruction, not part of his speech.

And that brings me to a point that I’ve had to think about long and hard. What does Joe Biden think about in the deep, dark recesses of his mind when he is alone? Do you think he actually is aware that he is in way over his head and that he’s not able to get his head above water? Is there any staff, or even his wife, that tells him about the mistakes that he’s making? Or, as I suspect, are they covering for him and tell him what a great job he’s doing? I do feel sorry in a way for Biden, at least to the point that he’s got to wonder how a 50 year political career can come crashing down in a heap of garbage like it has.

And the same goes for the K-baby. Do you think K-baby Harris actually hears what the press is saying about her, how she can’t say anything without creating a “word salad”? She has to hear how the commentators, even at CNN and MSNBC and the three major networks berate her and tell the world how bad of a job she’s doing at the border, or in Ukraine, or how every time she opens her mouth, there’s more garbage coming out than real useful speech. I don’t think K-baby is actually that stupid. I never thought Dan Quayle was that stupid. But you’d never know it by her actions, her words, and her mis-steps. She’s so filled with gaffes we could start calling her Joe Jr.

It’s sad, truly sad then the media turns on a president. I’ve seen it happen a few times, and when it does it speaks volumes about what a poor job the person is doing. I’ve never seen it done to this level however. Never before have I witnessed a political party where the majority doesn’t want their sitting president to run for reelection because they want to save the embarrassment of him losing, and save the party the embarrassment of becoming a non-factor in government. But that’s what’s happening now. I know it’s happened in the past. In fact it’s happened five times in the past. But four of the five times, the president failing to get the nomination was stepping in for a president who had died in office. The only elected president to not get a nomination to continue was Franklin Pierce. His stance on slavery did him in…not his incompetence in leadership.

And when the New York Times turns it’s back on you, you’re toast. It’s reached catastrophic levels. And it’s only been 19 months in office! I wish my crystal ball hadn’t stopped working!

Is Biden’s Green New Deal Hurting The Planet?

That’s going to depend on who you listen to. If you’re going to listen to Al Gore, or AOC, or Joe himself, the answer is, it’s going to save the planet. But that’s all emotional conjecture. If you actually look at the facts, you’re going to see that Biden’s plan (and I guess it’s AOC’s as well) actually does more damage than good.

Let’s take a look at what I’m talking about.

Stephen Moore, who writes for the Wall Street Journal, and is a really, really intelligent guy on a lot of issues, wrote a very interesting piece on the topic. His theory, and it was confirmed by ecologist and former climate change advocate, Michael Shellenberger, who said, “In 2021, emissions in the U.S. increased mostly because of increased coal use, *not* because of higher econ growth. Why? Because nat gas became more expensive. Why? Because of inadequate supply. Why? Chronic ‘under-investment in production & pipelines, thanks to ESG & climate activists.”

Now there aren’t a lot of people I take a face value when they speak. Both Moore and Shellenberger are people I take at face value. Our former program director at the radio station I used to work at was good friends with Moore, and had him on his show quite a bit. He always impressed me as an extremely well-researched guy. Shellenberger wrote an apology book on climate change and why he changed his tune. If you go back in my archives, you’ll see the piece on it I wrote…but fair warning, it was a while ago!

Anyway, there is the exact reason why Biden’s plan is actually hurting us. When we were doing fracking like we were in the Trump era, we were using a lot more natural gas and a lot less coal (and everybody will tell you that coal is a more damning pollutant than natural gas). That made our carbon emissions come way down. In fact in 2020, they were lower than they had been in decades, thanks largely to increased fracking. But in 2021 when Biden took office, what did he do about fracking? He really slowed it to a trickle, buying into the myth that fracking was bad for the environment. That just shows his ignorance and lack of understanding the real research out there. Shellenberger is a much more credible source of information on this account than Joe Biden will ever be.

So, in the end analysis, we have yet another liberal plan that while it sounds good on paper, in reality, it doesn’t work. Can anybody think of other such plans? I’m thinking Obamacare, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security for a start. How about Universal Income? What about the War On Poverty? Liberals are really good at coming up with new programs to deal with squishy, emotional issues. But when they put them into place, you see very quickly that they are not only totally opposite of what they originally said, but they cost tens of times as much as well. But the liberal’s point of view is, once we get this in place, it becomes an entitlement, and therefore, no one would dare take it away!

Just another bad liberal idea costing us trillions of dollars with no return what-so-ever. That’s who you put in the White House, America! Aren’t you proud of your decision?

EXTRA! I Take Offense To That!

This one requires a little backstory. My wife and I were watching the news and a story came on about people wanting to use different pronouns when describing themselves. Some people were even so off the rails that they would switch pronouns depending on how they felt at that moment, which in my mind is ridiculous. If you’re a male, you have an “outie”. If you’re female, you have an “innie”. You understand that much, right?

And in this era of “wokeness”, I decided for a joke I was going to self-describe as neither male or female, but as a “taco”. I mean, I live in Arizona. Taco’s are like hamburgers here. They are everywhere.

OK. On to the story. The First Lady, Jill Biden, was in San Antonio the other day addressing a Latino group. She made the comment that I’m sure everyone has seen by now. She was trying to get the point across that diversity was beautiful regardless what you’re talking about. And she said whether you’re talking “as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio — is your strength.”

Well, the Latino’s at the breakfast weren’t amused. They didn’t like being called “tacos”, and said such in a rather tersely worded letter sent to the First Lady. I had a different take on it, and here is a copy of my email to Jill Biden:

Madam First Lady,

I listened to your speech in front of the San Antonio Latino group in horror. No, it wasn’t because you called them tacos. I have decided in this era of “wokeness”, which I know you subscribe to, that I want to self-describe as a taco. When I heard your remark, I took offense to it. How dare you say that the people of San Antonio, Texas are diverse because of their breakfast tacos? That is not only a slap to the face of the Latino’s you were addressing, it was a slap in the face of those of us that self-describe as tacos. I am one such person!

You not only owe that group an apology for your insensitive and callous remarks, you owe me an apology as well. I do not take this lightly! You have slandered me with your thoughtless comments. And as someone who has been tabbed as “running the country through your puppet husband”, along with Ron Klain and Susan Rice, you need to send me an apology as well.

Shame on you. Shame on your husband. Shame on your party. You Dr. Biden, have hearby been cancelled!

Isn’t this a fun time to live in?

The liberals are eating each other and it’s time to get more popcorn!!!

I Have To Disagree On This One!

Kristi Noem, the Governor of South Dakota, is one of the up and coming conservative stars of the Republican party. In fact, she’s been touted as a possible presidential candidate, if not in 2024, certainly in 2028. And I don’t think there are many out there that would argue that she’s not a rock-ribbed conservative.

But I have to disagree with Noem on this one!

After the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling in the Supreme Court, Noem is taking the states’ rights issue to the max. And while I would agree with her that probably 90% of the issues being talked about today are better suited to be decided state-by-state, one of her topics can’t be. Not because politically it would be a bombshell. It’s because it just wouldn’t work.

That is the institution of gay marriage.

Now, let me say, I’ve always been against the institution of gay marriage for a very simple reason. Man does not give rights, and man does not define marriage. That is defined in the Bible as between a man and a woman. Genesis 2:24 says, marriage is when “one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve) united together to become one flesh: Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” I have always believed that if you haven’t coined a word, you don’t have the right to redefine it. That’s what the Democrats and the snowflake left likes to do. If a word doesn’t fit the narrative, they want to redefine it so it does.

My belief does not stem from a hatred of gays. It simply stems from the definition of marriage and the inability of mankind to change what God has ordained. And that would mean that you have to define marriage as one man and one woman. You don’t have the right to change that. I’m not getting into the whole gay argument here. That’s not my purpose.

Now, Noem has said that gay marriage should be a states’ rights issue because, for the same reason as abortion, it isn’t given as a power for the federal government to decide, nor taken away from states to decide. She’s right on that count. But the fact you’d have potentially 50 differing laws on what marriage is would make it a nightmare. If say, California makes it legal for a man to marry a rabbit, but Nevada forbids cross-species to marry, you can see the problem if the guy takes his rabbit to Vegas for the weekend!

Marriage is one of those things that needs to be defined and held to nationally. It’s not right for a couple that’s gay to be legal in say New York, but then when they cross over to Connecticut, they are illegally married, or not considered married. I find that to be totally out of bounds. And I’m saying that as a person that does not believe in gay marriage for the reason already listed above.

I don’t know how you would police that in the first place. What if a state like Alaska not only recognizes marriage as between a man and a woman, but then makes it a crime for it to be defined any other way. If a gay couple from Washington State (where presumably it would be legal) vacations in Alaska, could they then be arrested just for going to the state? I think that’s stepping over the line.

So, while Kristi Noem and I do agree on the whole gay marriage thing, we disagree that it should be a state’s rights issue due to the inability to actually police and monitor it uniformly. You don’t have that problem with abortion. You may not even have that problem in other areas. But in marriage? You certainly could run into trouble and big time!

K-Baby’s Latest Misadventure

Poor K-baby Harris. She just can’t seem to catch a break. Time after time, Harris addresses the media, especially on what she feels are “women’s issues”. So, when Harris was talking to reporters after the Supreme Court released the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling, which effectively over-turned Roe v. Wade, she was beside herself. In the process, got a lot of the facts wrong. I was rather surprised that she wasn’t fact checked…until I realized who the fact checkers are.

Here’s what K-baby had to say:

“We have to recognize we’re a nation that was founded on certain principles that are grounded in the concept of freedom and liberty. We also know that we’ve had a history in this country of government trying to claim ownership over human bodies. We had supposedly evolved from that time and that way of thinking. So this is very problematic on so many levels. The Supreme Court, with the Dobbs decision, for the first time in the history of our nation took a constitutional right that had been recognized and took it from the women of America — took a constitutional right,” 

OK. Let’s parse this a little bit, shall we? Certainly our country was founded on certain principles that were grounded in freedom and liberty. It was also grounded in religious freedom. Now, if she is talking about the government trying to “claim ownership over human bodies” as a veiled attempt at talking about slavery, I get it. But I don’t think that was what she was referring to. I can’t believe that any court decision that basically removes a law from the books is taking away freedoms unless they are referring to something like the rights described in the Bill of Rights. Speaking of which, Harris is dead wrong when she points out that “for the first time in the history of our nation, took a constitutional right that had been recognized and took it from the women of America — took a constitutional right.”

Let me explain that last quote. Rights are not given by man. I know that will rile my liberal friends out there that feels that if they feel strongly enough about something, they can make it a “right” just by calling it a right. And if they really hate the way something is going, they can add several “rights” and call it a “Bill of Rights”, like the Airline Travelers’ Bill of Rights. Nothing can be further from the truth. Man does not make rights. Only our Creator can define and give us rights, as the Founding Fathers so aptly agreed with. So for Harris to say that abortion was a “constitutional right” that was taken away is wrong. Abortion doesn’t appear anywhere in the Constitution. It is not a right given to anybody. In fact, if you refer to sixth commandment in the Ten Commandments, which basically every religion subscribes to, it says “Thou shalt not kill.” So, taking the life of a fetus with heartbeat, able to live outside the womb has to be considered killing. But that flies in the face of leftists, who have to redefine killing to fit their narrative. And, if you believe as most conservatives believe that life begins at conception, all abortion would therefore be classified as killing. Again, a real hard thing for the left to rationalize without focusing on something else. They’ve chosen to call it “reproductive rights”.

And again, they are invoking “rights” where they cannot grant them. If that were the case, Nancy Pelosi could grant you the right to be a millionaire like her. Or Adam Schiff could grant you the right to be a liar like him. Or Joe Biden could grant you the right to make up and rewrite your own personal history. None of that is possible.

Harris gets caught up in so much “word salad” that it’s not even salad any longer. It’s nothing more than noxious weeds.

Welcome To The Recession!

It’s not official yet, but it will be by next week at this time. We are in a recession. According to the Atlanta FED’s GDP Tracker, we saw a shrinkage of the Gross Domestic Product of 1.6% in the first quarter of 2022. And what is going to be announced next week is that in the second quarter of 2022, we are going to see a shrinkage of 2.2%.

That means that yes, Virginia, the United States is officially in a recession.

And that is yet another lie that Joe Biden has been foisting on the American public. Remember Biden saying, “We are booming! We are adding more jobs than any time in history. We are making some incredible gains.” Apparently, Biden has been asleep in the basement. While there are more jobs being added which are not “new jobs”, but old jobs being filled after the economy shut down during COVID, we aren’t seeing anything positive elsewhere in the economy.

The inflation rate is going to top out in the 9% range for the past twelve months when the new numbers come out. And we are going to continue to see increases through the rest of the year as the Biden administration has zero plans on the table to try and lower inflation. That reason is simple. In order to drop the inflation rate, and get a handle on the economy, you have to understand what the problem with inflation and recession are caused by. That is simply the printing of too much money. When Biden passed the $1.6 trillion infrastructure bill, he had the printing presses going overtime. And when you have an increase in supply, it is going to cheapen whatever product you’re talking about, even if that product is money. We have so much money out there now, that it devalues the value of money overall.

I think it’s rather interesting that if you look at the last two Democrat presidents, we have spent 8 1/2 of the last 9 years of their reigns in recession. There is only one reason why that is happening. It’s Democrat/liberal snowflake policies that tip the economy over the edge. And until we see a major change in the spending policies of the liberal Biden administration, you aren’t going to have a chance to right the ship. That goes double when Biden himself is too busy blaming anybody but himself for the problem. He isn’t even able to realize that we are actually IN a recession. That’s just reckless.

How long this recession will be with us is dependent on whether or not there can be a change in Congress. It’s evident that we can’t trust the Democrats currently in charge of both houses of making that shift on their own. That has to come from the Republicans if they are able to take over the House and Senate next year. Until then, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

It will be interesting to see how the Dems play this one out over the next four months!

How Does Abortion Figure Into Midterms?

Ever since we were “teased” by the leak of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson, leftists all over the country have been certain that this was going to be their magic bullet to stopping the predicted “red wave” from washing over their hold on Congress during this November’s midterm elections. Is it really going to happen?

I don’t think so, and here’s why.

I won’t begin to say that the whole abortion issue won’t have some impact on the election, but it can’t have anywhere near the impact that the Democrats are hoping for. I’d put it slightly above the results of this whole January 6th Committee debacle. And my reason is basic and simple.

The people that care about both the January 6th Committee, which they themselves have admitted few people care about; and the abortion ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson, are going to effect people that were already going to vote Democrat anyway. There will be few if any votes actually swayed by this. In fact, even though there is a poll out there saying that 75% of women voters feel more inclined to support Democrats than Republicans after the SCOTUS ruling (Quinipiac came out with it), when they learn that abortion itself has not been outlawed, that figure dropped to about 49%.

The point here is pretty easy to grasp. Let’s say you’re a woman, and you have been inclined to buy into the whole “women’s right to her body” argument. Let’s say that the idea that terminating a life inside your body isn’t as important to you as feeling that you can live freely without consequence in your day to day sex life. The chances of you being left of center and someone that has already been voting Democrat all along are huge. Yes, there will be some independents, and maybe a few Republicans that fall into that category, but can we agree most of the people that are going to be swayed by this were already Dems?

Now, the only argument that holds water as to the election itself is that it may juice the left’s base a bit. I’m not saying a lot, I’m saying a bit. Let’s face it. If you’re someone that is excited about politics, you’re going to vote in pretty much every election. Unless there is a candidate that peaks your interest to the point that you really feel a need to get off the couch and vote, you probably won’t unless you’re into politics. There are two recent examples of this type of candidate. The first was Bobo Obama in 2008, who pulled people who had never voted before into politics with his “Hope & Change” message. He was young, energetic, and hip. The other was Donald Trump in 2016, who came in and called a spade a spade and didn’t care what the rest of the world felt of him. His confidence and message resonated with people that hadn’t voted before (and still does with a lot of those folks).

I would contend that neither January 6th Committee findings, nor the abortion ruling by the Supreme Court are going to have much impact at getting people off of the couch and going to the polls in November, especially if gas prices are around $5 a gallon, and inflation is 8% or so. People usually vote their wallets before they vote other things. And in midterm elections, that is even more evident to be the case. You don’t gravitate around a national candidate. So any bump that either the January 6th Committee or the abortion decision would generate will be small, and likely not to sway many minds that weren’t already made up. I really doubt there are people out there that would have voted Republican in November for House or Senate seats, that now will vote Democrat because of these issues. They are more likely going to make this a referendum on Joe Biden’s ability to lead.

And there is nothing Democrats can do about that!

Do YOU Remember What Today is About?

I’m sure that most of you do. Some of you that are a little younger may not actually know that the 4th of July is a very special day in our nation’s history. It was on this day some 246 years ago that the Declaration of Independence was signed at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Of course, you learned all that in school.

But there is so much more. Today is a very special day, especially because of everything that hit the Supreme Court this year and the meanings that the Founding Fathers’ held for our new country so many years ago. Lets take a look at just a couple of items,.

Now, granted, what we are talking about here aren’t from the Declaration of Independence, but from the Constitution. That document was signed some eleven years and three months or so after the Declaration of Independence (September 17, 1787), also at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. But it couldn’t have taken place without the Declaration of Independence!

So, we’ve tested and corrected a couple of things recently. First off, the Supreme Court tested the Second Amendment, that gives the citizens the right to bear arms. Why? Because the Founding Fathers were well aware of what happens when governments get too power hungry. It wasn’t that they wanted to have a militia (though that was important since there was no US Army at the time). But they wanted to give the PEOPLE the right to defend themselves against the government should the need arise. THAT is the reason for the Second Amendment. And THAT was the reason the Justices found that New York’s century-old law was unconstitutional.

Let’s move on. We have to look at a First Amendment argument. Remember the Bremerton, Washington football coach who got fired for praying with his team at midfield after games? Turns out the Bremerton school board was wrong in firing him. See, for the past 50 years or so, we’ve used the First Amendment to have freedom FROM religion. That’s not what it means or says. It basically says that you can worship as you please and the federal government cannot get in the way of establishing religion. They don’t say anything about Christianity. They don’t say anything about Judaism. Or Islam, or Buddhism, or Shinto or anything else. Because the Founding Fathers wanted you to have the right to FREELY worship as you chose. If you believe that God Almighty lives in a McDonalds in Erie, Pennsylvania, then you have the right to believe that. No one can take the belief from you. They didn’t ever say what religion was right or wrong. They never intended anyone to not allow prayer in schools. After all, both houses of Congress open with prayer every single day they are in session! And most (not all) presidents that are sworn in, still put their hand on the Christian Bible. What the Supreme Court said in the case of Mr. Kennedy was simply that Bremerton was prohibiting him to worship as he sees fit. He wasn’t making that prayer mandatory. It was voluntary. And what the school board did was wrong. It’s not freedom FROM religion, it’s freedom OF religion.

Finally, we get to the item that some women in this country are mistakenly screaming and upset about and that was the Dobbs v. Jackson Health Center ruling that basically dismantled Roe v. Wade. First of all, as I have said before, the left is totally wrong when they say women have a “reproductive right”. No, sorry. They don’t. That’s because man does not give rights out. Only God Himself can give out rights. The Founding Fathers realized that. Liberals today don’t. So, that was mistake number one when Roe v. Wade was founded. The liberal court at the time pointed to a privacy clause saying that any decision was between a woman and her doctor. That’s the most used argument for it. And actually, they are right on this one. It’s not the federal government’s place to legislate this matter. That’s because the Tenth Amendment says that unless it’s specifically spelled out in the Constitution, or specifically denied that the states should make that decision, any legislative decision belongs to the states. So, yes, ladies, you’re right that the federal government has no business legislating abortion. And that’s what the Supreme Court corrected. It wasn’t about the Ninth Amendment. It wasn’t about the Fourteenth Amendment. It’s about whether or not the federal government has the actual right in the first place to make the decision, and they don’t.

Those are three shining examples that take what was written almost a quarter of a millennium ago, and apply it to today’s life. It actually still stands up pretty well. And it’s all because of the document that was signed on this day some 246 years ago (or right around today’s date… it actually took a lot longer to sign!).

Enjoy your cookout, and Happy Fourth of July!

Step To The Right…

I have always believed that politics is nothing more than a pendulum swinging in this country. First it swings to the right, then it swings to the left, then back to the right, and so on. That’s because Americans in this country are basically moderate. Oh, it’s a slightly right of center country, but not by much. So, when Republicans are in charge of government, they usually go “too far” for the moderates, who want the freebies that Democrats offer. When the Democrats take over, the moderates realize that there is a steep price for all of those freebies. And it’s back to the right again.

We had our swing to the left in 2020 when Biden and company got elected. Dems’ basically held Congress (though not by more than the skin of their unbrushed teeth). And you’re seeing the results of that swing here in 2022.

We’ve taken some rather severe steps to the right in the past few weeks. Take the overturning of New York’s 100 year old gun law that basically said, sure…you can get a concealed carry permit. You just have to prove that you NEED to have one. Nope. That flies in the face of the Second Amendment.

Next we had the overturning of Roe v. Wade. That shouldn’t have been a major surprise really to anybody, but it was indeed a big blow to the left. They cried that they had this “right” for 50 years. Let’s get one thing straight. They do not have a right. The Constitution does spell out that you have the right to bear arms. It doesn’t say a word about pregnancy or abortion. And it doesn’t give Congress and the federal government the right to legislate that as the 10th Amendment would so aptly put it. So, it’s a states’ issue. And that’s what this court did. They returned the question of abortion to the states. But it was a step to the right.

And while I’m on the subject of abortion and “women’s rights to choose”, let me just say that abortion has never been a Constitutional right. It’s not in there. I’ve looked. Just because Democrats and liberals want to make everything a “right”, doesn’t mean they have the ability to do so. Rights are not granted by man. They are granted by God. Now, that flies in the face of the left’s view that they are indeed gods. But they don’t have the ability to do so. So, when they call for a “patients’ bill of rights”, or “air travelers’ bill of rights”, they are just fooling themselves.

We’ve also had a step to the right when it comes to religion. Long being banished from public places, I sense that religion could be making a long-needed come back. Joesph Kennedy, the Bremerton, Washington football coach who was fired for praying with his players at midfield following their games won his victory in the highest court of the land this session. It was a huge win because of the fact it begins to establish “freedom OF religion”, not freedom FROM religion. The First Amendment doesn’t say that government can’t be religious. It says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

It was obvious to anybody with a second grade education that prohibiting the free exercise thereof was exactly what Bremerton school officials did to Kennedy and his team. No one was forced to join them. No one was ridiculed if they didn’t join them. They were free to do so if they wanted. Likewise, government can certainly celebrate God. They just can’t make laws that ban or deter the establishment of a religion, or stop people from practicing their own beliefs. If that means you want to worship onions…go for it. No one can stop you. Don’t forget (and the libs don’t want to be reminded of this), religious freedom was the overriding reason this country was founded in the first place.

We are going to continue to see steps to the right as we get closer to November. And if the red wave happens as everyone is predicting, you’re going to see an even greater step to the right, as Joe Biden’s dream of transforming government shatters into a sea of dog doo doo. But don’t worry liberal friends…as always happens, the pendulum likes to be at 6 o’clock. and will strive to return there soon enough!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
