A little long, but hits the proverbial nail!
Just a little common sense, and a pragmatic eye. A great read and entertaining.
“Who is Donald Trump?”
The better question may be, “What is Donald Trump?” The answer: A giant middle finger from
average Americans to the political and media establishment.
Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their
parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demosocialists and the
“Republicans in Name Only.” They know there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Hillary
Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.
Ben Carson is not an “establishment” candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson,
and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen
lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun
tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse.
Besides, lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things.
Stranger things have happened. (The nation elected a Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)
Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House
in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014 and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy
Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why? Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.
No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates will slash federal
spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban
Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of
Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.) No reasonable
person can believe that any of the nation’s major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and
the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New
Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
Anyone named Bush
Anyone named Clinton
Anyone who’s held political office
Phony “official” unemployment and inflation figures
Welfare waste and fraud
People faking disabilities to go on the dole
VA waiting lists
TSA airport groping
The Federal Reserve’s money-printing schemes
Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
Michelle Obama’s vacations
Michelle Obama’s food police
Barack Obama’s golf
Barack Obama’s arrogant and condescending lectures
Barack Obama’s criticism/hatred of America
Global warming nonsense
Gun confiscation threats
Boys in girls’ bathrooms
Whiny, spoiled college students who can’t even place the Civil War in the correct century
. . .and that’s just the short list.
Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and that few
Republicans have the courage to address these issues. They certainly know that none of the
establishment candidates are better than barely listening to them, and Trump is their way of saying, “Screw you, Hillary Rodham Rove Bush!” The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more supporters he gains. The only pundits who seem to understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John LeBoutillier. All the others argue that the voters will eventually “come to their senses” and support an establishment candidate.
But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a new engine installed by
experts–and neither Rodham nor Bush are mechanics with the skills or experience to install it.
Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband
abandoned. Jeb Bush is not a mechanic; he merely inherited a garage. Granted, Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage. He won’t hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.
“How dare they revolt!” the “elites” are bellowing. Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. “But Trump will hand the election to Clinton!” That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved “Maverick” McCain down GOP throats in 2008–knowing he would lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would not be dramatically different than Bush or most of his fellow candidates. They would be nothing more than caretakers, not working to restore America’s greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can survive both–and there is little evidence that the establishment candidates of either party understand that. The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.
Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wanders through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do
need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for
decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; all the world’s glaciers are not melting; and Rosie O’Donnell is a fat pig.
Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan. But unless we close
our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands. One jihadist poisoning a city’s water supply could kill
tens of thousands. One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions. Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don’t care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
While Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look,
most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise. (*a dream he might want to reconsider if he knew what the gelatin used in the manufacture of the ‘Semtex’ plastic explosive he blows himself up with was made from)
The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much. You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016, his or her cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we’ve seen before. The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge. The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots. Whether it is Bush’s Karl Rove or Clinton’s John Podesta who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little.
If the establishment wins, America loses.!!

SB/HB 76 Property Tax Elimination in Jeopardy
Ladies, Gentlemen, SB 76 supporters, and even those opposed to SB76:
A lot has been happening in Harrisburg, and we are about to be screwed
royally. I apologize in advance for the crude nature of this Email, but I
have no time for niceties right now…
It appears that my earlier prediction of getting a vote on SB 76 as a “show”
vote may come to fruition. However, it seems as though the “fix” is in on
the budget. I know this because I heard it straight from a representative
this evening, and then saw a news report that mentioned the same details
that the representative spoke of.
So here’s the deal…They are planning to raise the sales tax to to
7.25%….a full .25% MORE than what SB 76 would raise it, but rather than
complete elimination, you will only get $2 Billion back toward “relief”.
Actually, you only get $1.4 Billion back, because $600 Million of that goes
to replace the CURRENT gambling revenue that is used for the
Homestead/Farmstead reduction. The slots money that is currently going to
“relief” will be diverted to the grow general fund.
Since it takes $12 Billion to completely replace the school property tax,
the $1.4 Billion will give you less than a 12% reduction in your property
tax. There is no permanent cap on the property tax being mentioned, so your
property taxes will continue to grow beyond current levels, with an
increased sales tax on top of it. That’s assuming they will reapply the
money evenly, and not redistribute the wealth to the inner cities and other
places of Wolf’s choice. I wouldn’t place any bets on that, so a 12%
reduction is probably the best case scenario in most districts. You will get
about twice what you currently get in the Homestead/Farmstead exclusion,
which isn’t much. Most homeowners will get a few hundred bucks in return
for a 7.25% sales tax rate. Pretty rotten deal if you ask me.
They claim this isn’t a done deal yet, but it appears as though it is. We
CANNOT allow this to happen. Even if you’re not an SB 76 supporter, you
should be OUTRAGED. This is a TAX INCREASE.
Where is the Chamber of Commerce now?? Where is Americans for Prosperity??
Where is the Commonwealth Foundation?? Where is Mike Turzai?? They ALL
opposed total property tax elimination, and they all claimed that the
increased sales tax would hurt Pennsylvania businesses. Am I to assume that
they now think it’s O.K. to raise the sales tax even MORE than SB 76 did
while giving just a pittance back to the taxpayers rather than the full
elimination that SB 76 provided?? We’ll have to wait and see…
We have said REPEATEDLY that we will see some type of property tax bill
passed. We have said that even those who oppose SB 76 should get on board
because they won’t like the alternative that the general assembly comes up
with. So here we are. We have a choice to make. The next few weeks will
be crucial to stop this train wreck. GET INVOLVED NOW.
Check the link below for a news story from Channel 8.
**** PLEASE SHARE THIS! ****
From a news piece on WTAE-TV:
“One new idea under discussion could provide a cornerstone of the cash Wolf
is seeking: diverting the roughly $600 million in slot-machine gambling
receipts that school districts currently pass along to homeowners as
property tax reductions. That stream of money would shift to the state
treasury, while negotiators are discussing an increase in the state sales
tax to offset reductions in local school property taxes, another concept
that is important to Wolf to improve equity in school funding. The new money
from a higher state sales tax would replace the diverted slot-machine
dollars to schools – and then some.”
The problem here is not the loss of gambling revenues but the increase in
the sales tax to replace them. If the sales tax is increased for this
purpose it will kill the HB/SB 76 funding stream and elimination will be
dead forever. We will, instead, be given another half-baked “relief”
This plan will be discussed in Harrisburg on Monday and it is URGENT that we
do all that is possible to kill it. PLEASE CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE
IMMEDIATELY TO TELL HIM OR HER THAT ANY INCREASE IN THE SALES TAX THAT DOES
NOT RESULT IN ELIMINATION IS UNACCEPTABLE.
In addition, call House Majority Leader Dave Reed, (717) 705-7173, and
Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, (717) 787-1377, with the same message:
ANY INCREASE IN THE SALES TAX WITHOUT ELIMINATION IS UNACCEPTABLE! DO IT NOW
AND PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO DO THE SAME.
