The Hundred Person March?

Before we get started today, just a reminder that we’re now up on YouTube as well as WordPress.com, Twitter, and Facebook! You can actually watch video’s of the guy that some have said has “a face for radio”, by going to YouTube.com, searching for “The Lone Cactus”, and when you see the picture of the lone cactus, click on it and subscribe. Ring the notification bell, and you’ll get emails every time I post a new video. OK…commercial is over!

I want you to remember back a little more than three years ago, when Donald Trump was elected president. Do you remember the protests that took place? Every major city in America had literally millions of people on the streets decrying the fact that Trump had beaten Crooked Hillary Clinton! How dare he deny Queen Hillary her “rightful” spot as our nation’s leader?

Let’s fast forward to today. Donald Trump takes out Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian general that has butchered hundreds if not thousands of American lives, and overall, probably in the millions of people, including Iranians. The day after Trump announced that Soleimani was dead, it was basically 100 people in Chicago protesting “No War In Iran”. In Boston, about 200 people picketed. In LA, the number was a dozen, though the weather was much nicer. So I have a question to ask…

Where is all the protest against Trump today?

We’ve gone from filling the Mall in Washington DC with liberal women, to people that can’t even fill the steps of the Los Angeles City Hall. What’s happened in the last three plus years that’s changed America is such a drastic way that the people have been staying home in droves rather than protesting?

Well, let’s look at this a little closer. The stock market sets new records on almost a daily basis. It’s up about 62% since Trump took office. The economy has grown at numbers Trump’s predecessor said we’d never achieve again. Employment in this country is at record highs, and employment for minorities, especially blacks and Hispanics is at historical highs. Wages have risen for the first time in 10 years. And the doom and gloom that was predicted when Trump was elected has become gossamer.

Trump’s foreign policy, while in stark contrast to Bobo Obama’s, has proven to be effective. His dealing in trade has brought the US closer to at least a level playing field, instead of being taken advantage of. True, there is conflict in the Middle East, as there has been for thousands of years. And yes, Russia has flexed it’s muscle again, but could we ever really say that they were our ally?

And that is where the people have gone. They’ve realized that Donald Trump isn’t so bad after all. He’s not taken the nation and thrown us off a cliff. He’s guided us, at times boasted a little too much, certainly hasn’t been the most “presidential” in terms of his actions or words. But he’s done the right thing more often than the wrong thing. And that is where the people have gone. They’ve gone back home to enjoy their new found rewards for being an American. And yes…in a lot of cases, but not all, Donald Trump’s policies have made America great again!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

No Civility

You know what I really like about liberals? It’s simple. When they lose, they go crazy. I mean, REALLY crazy. And the more they lose, the worse they get. Let’s look at the liberal snowflakes of today, shall we?

They lose this election OVER A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, and they become angry. They protest in the streets. Hell, an FBI agent and his skank decide that “Trump won’t ever become president”. Really? How are they going to make that happenĀ after he’s become duly elected?

Fast forward. The president in question seems to turn the economy around like a businessman would. Geez, isn’t that something? Knock me over with a feather. The snowflakes go crazy because their guy couldn’t do it in 8 years. Trump did it in less than 10% of that time. Hmm…

You have a member of Congress, granted, not a very smart member, but a member of Congress none-the-less, that starts screaming “Impeach 45” right from the inauguration. She has no idea what she’s talking about and 80% of the country knows it. The media bucks the president any time they can, and previously trusted sources like the New York Times, and the Washington Post are found guilty of making up stories. They don’t fire the people that made up the stories. That’s a first.

You have not the president, but the spokesperson, who is at dinner with her family, and a ill-bred restaurant owner decides to kick her out for her political beliefs. How in the world do you think if the Supreme Court would allow a baker not to bake a wedding cake on religious grounds, would they find on political grounds? Her restaurant by the way is on the verge of closing for good with all of the negative publicity she’s gotten (and it’s been flooded with conservatives inviting her to kick THEM out!).

Then this lame-brain Congresswoman decides to incite violence by telling everyone to attack people leaving restaurants, and anytime they see them in public. The Majority Leader of the Senate and his wife are attacked leaving a restaurant because of this.

Before Donald Trump even narrowed his list of Supreme Court nominees he’d choose from, there was screaming and crying and caterwalling from the left. They don’t even know who he’s chosen and they’re bitching! They obviously don’t remember their history. Anthony Kennedy (not necessarily a conservative) was appointed by Ronald Reagan. David Souter (also not necessarily a conservative) was appointed by George HW Bush. It does happen!

And it goes on and on.

The left is behaving like a bunch of two year olds who didn’t get their way. Poor babies. As a former president once said, “Elections have consequences. We won. Deal with it.” This, by the way, isn’t dealing with it. This is acting like a bunch of babies.

Look, I’m all for protesting if you’re still living in your parents’ basement and don’t have a job. Of course, the only way you no longer have a job is a) you’re totally unemployable or b) you don’t want one. Those are the only people that are out protesting…everyone else realizes that what Trump has done so far has by and large been a positive. To argue otherwise shows complete and total ignorance of the situation.

So, to the Snowflakes out there, don’t bother responding…no one wants to hear your complaints any more, and besides, they’re meaningless. What has all of that protesting actually done for your side in 18 months? Yeah…I thought so.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Can Someone PUHLEEZE Tell Me…

I’m in a quandry. Can anyone PLEASE tell me what all of these protest marches are supposed to accomplish? Oh, I get it that it’s a throwback to the 60’s when there were marches in the streets over everything. And then, like now, they accomplish very little.

That never seems to matter.

Take this past weekend. Tom Steyer, that uber-socialist, tree-hugging, eco-terrorist held a march in Washington, DC. What was it for? You’d think climate global change warming, right? Well, yeah, that was part of it. But it was also an anti-Trump rally. And it was also and anti-faith rally. And it was also a union rally. And it was also an LGBTQ rally. Sounds more like the Democrats’ national convention to me.

And my question is, what does this stuff accomplish? I mean, look, we had all of these gun control marches a few weeks back led by that kid from Florida who should be in school, but is rather enjoying his 15 minutes of fame (have you seen him lately? No? That’s because his 15 minutes are up!) We’ve moved on. And what has really happened? A couple of mis-informed companies told the NRA that they were no longer going to give their members discounts. Big deal! More people during that time joined the NRA, and more people during that time went out and bought guns. That seems to me to be just the opposite of what these gun control nuts wanted. So why protest?

And what good is going to come of all of the marches and protests that go on around the country? Oh, it DOES make the people taking part in the protest feel good for a day or two. They think they’ve accomplished something, but again, what has happened? Nothing. Bupkis. Zip. Nada.

And that, in short is one of the main problems I have with the Democrats and liberals in general. They’re really long on “feel-good” solutions that don’t accomplish anything, and really non-existent on solutions that actually solve problems. If you think about it going back, I’m trying to think of things the left has done that actually have had a long term benefit to this country. OK…I thought of Lyndon Johnson’s civil rights act, but the left (or the Democrats at least) opposed that at the time. Other than that, it seems everything they have accomplished has led to shortfalls, downgrades, and generally worsening of whatever was meant to be.

Need proof? OK. Let’s start with Social Security. Oh, it’s a nice idea to help out poor, never-employed widows (which was the original intent). It’s turned into a nationally government-funded pension system. And it sucks because it’s going broke. So is Medicare and Medicaid. Look at Obamacare. It never had a chance to succeed because it was poorly designed with the wrong goals in mind. And instead of helping people that couldn’t afford healthcare, it created a whole new class of people that retired early and can’t get decent healthcare insurance…forcing millions to go back to work just for the healthcare.

Everywhere you look, liberal ideals fall apart. They spend scads of money and for what? And then when they don’t get their way, they take to the streets to protest. And what does that show? Only that they don’t have anything better to do with their time.

Personally, I think it’s time liberals left the 60’s in the past and grew up. It’s time.

Are Trump “Haters” That Different?

I get disgusted when I see all of the Anti-Trump protests on TV. Oh, I know it’s usually a bunch of people, probably paid by George Soros, that are only there to show the world that they are angry with Donald Trump…when most of them are there because they are unemployed and live in their parents’ basement…and probably need the money.

And then I stop and think for a minute.

I totally get their feelings. It’s the same feeling I had, but only expressed online for the past eight years during the Obama administration. It was this clueless, “How can they even THINK of doing that” type of feeling. And I get that if they aren’t used to politics as it has been, and they want to systemically change the political system in America (as Obama did), they certainly wouldn’t be happy with Trump.

And that’s where these folks are dead wrong. Oh, I wasn’t happy that Obama wanted to move America to socialism. He couldn’t do it, but that didn’t stop him from trying. And he didn’t care what Congress or the Supreme Court, or even the American people had to say about it. It pissed me off, and I know it did a lot of you as well. Well, the same thing is happening to a different degree with these Anti-Trump folks. They’re pissed. They can’t really tell you why, except that they hate Trump.

Recently, a group of college kids were asked a bunch of statements attributed to Donald Trump. They responded negatively against all of them. They were 100% shocked when they were then told it wasn’t Donald Trump that said that, but in reality, Barack Obama said it. That’s scary on a couple of points. First, it’s scary that they can’t recognize the politics “their guy” practices. Second, it shows in flaming red colors the fact it doesn’t matterĀ what Trump says or does, they’re going to hate it. I have to admit, I felt pretty much the same way about Obama. The only difference between me and the MSM and these people is, I didn’t go out on the street and protest. I’ve never been a protester. I tend to influence people on one one and try to make a difference. These protests make the people feel good for a little while, but they never really accomplish much…unless they break a couple of windows, loot a couple of stores, or get arrested and have a record for the rest of their lives.

No, Trump haters are here to stay…just like I was an Obama hater. We deal with it differently, and frankly, I don’t think there are as many of them as there were of my kind, but they do have the media on their side…at least the print and television media. Radio is still a good place to go and get the truth. So, treat these people kindly…you and I will be hating another president someday…it’ll happen…just wait!
