The Republican Battle: Establishment v Everyday Folk

We at A&G do not pretend to be experts when it comes to Obamacare or what were the specifics in President Trump's attempt to repeal and replace last week which was pulled from a Congressional vote at last moment due to lack of Rep. support

We do know that it was best example of enemies within his own party openly sabotaging a man they've hated since Trump first threw his political hat into the ring

A group of political Judases calling themselves the 'Freedom Caucus'

Fuckhead Caucus is more like it
These are these same Koch Brothers controlled whores who deep down in the pit of their blackened souls would have preferred Trump lose to wretched Hillary because all they really care about is money and power and control...

To them it would have been more advantageous to spend the next 4 to 8 years bitching about Democrat policies under Hilly then have someone in power who would as its leader (Trump) essentially reshape the Republican party in his image for decades to come

In other words they are just as much of the 'swamp' as the sewage which are the Democrats
You see to these rats, they want Trump gone as much in one term or sooner as the Dems do because Establishment Republicans do not want real change..

They never wanted any kind of change

Establishment Republicans want their personal wealth - their investments and stock dividends to keep growing, and their tax rates to keep falling, and be good shoe-shine boys to corporations, banks and every other Wall Street power player who will give them lots of donations so they can serve unlimited terms in office

A small generalization yes but truthful nonetheless
The Fuckhead Caucus (that's how we shall refer to them) didn't think Trump went far enough in rescinding Obamacare

They wanted people with pre-existing conditions and adult children under 25 still covered under their parents' plan kicked off too..

These are the same parasites who desperately want to cut 'entitlements' to the bone because well..  its not like a wealthy Establishment Republican ever receives benefit and will probably do all they can to sabotage Trump's budget bill as well

They really make the party look awful
Because you see there's really 2 kinds of Republicans..

The Establishment ones we keep talking about i.e. fiscal conservatives that only care about getting richer and richer, and any war that helps them make more money and power, is a good one

Then there's the everyday Republican who works hard, pays their taxes, saves for a rainy day as best he/she can and has certain morals, values, principles and sense of right and wrong that quite bluntly most Establishment Republicans and most Democrats just do not possess
Everyday Republicans by and large believe in Individualism, depending as little as possible on government to solve their problems and want them to stop interfering in their small business

They believe in always trying.. to work hard to succeed then picking themselves up when they fail and go about try-try-trying again

Everyday Republicans believe in capitalism but that excessive greed is not 'good', one's personal God should not be money and you can't take it with you and thus possess a far different set of priorities as to what matters in life
We could go on but you get the point

Guess which side we're on?

Establishment Republicans tried to do everything possible to destroy Trump

Everyday Republicans succeeded in getting Trump elected.
And now those same bastards who tried so hard to derail Trump are seeking with the same determination as those parasitic Democrats to stop a good man in office from doing good for us

Whether it be through writing letters and emails to your local Congresspeople to just voting these pieces of crap out in GOP primary elections in two years, its once again going to be up to Everyday Republicans to save Trump, the party and the nation from a group of political puppets that truly fit the moniker of 'deplorables'

Respectful Disagreement on Trump's Tax Plan & 'Here Comes the Robots'

It probably seems lately we've been a bit critical on Trump, a man we actively and openly supported throughout his Presidential campaign and still currently support and want to see succeed

But we stated when he was Inaugurated and re-state now that this is not a Trump butt-kissing propaganda blog

When we disagree with something or feel some disappointment or frustration with a policy or stance, we will express it but unlike mainstream media, our goal is not to destroy the man but rather to see Trump be great
We are very happy overall he's President but when see him constantly pandering to this group and that group, especially when he should be focusing his energies on defeating domestic enemies that seek to destroy him, its frustrating..

In addition, if we had to use political labels to describe our positions on issues of importance that affect millions of everyday people, we would categorize ourselves as socially conservative but economically moderate

So because Trump is very much big business and pro-corporation, and we are the opposite, we're sure that there will be times we express disagreement with his economic policy
We did so the other day when addressing the conundrum of how do you lower the deficit and get spending under control when the policy in play is to lower taxes on corporations, the wealthy and middle class (what we call throwing an appeasement bone) while dramatically increasing Defense spending?

Trump believes strongly in trickle down economics which was Reagan's economic policy..

We believe in the opposite.. a trickle UP where corporations and Wall Street benefit when the standard of living improves for everyday people First
Trump believes that by dramatically lowering taxes for corporations while keeping jobs in the US (that part we fully support), it will ultimately help Americans' standard of living rise

Problem is that corporations are heartless, faceless profit-first, community-second entities who's Sole fiduciary is to benefit its shareholders, no one else including its workforce

And we believe the collective billions these corporations will save in taxes will not go to hiring more workers or increasing salaries of those currently employed but instead go into shareholders' pockets or double down investing in robotics, drones and other automated means to increase production while eliminating jobs
For example, Domino's Pizza will be begin experimenting with pizza delivery automation by using six wheeled self-driving robots that will take food orders to people's doorsteps in Germany and Netherlands

If successful and profitable, expect it ultimately here in the US and one day its bye-bye pizza delivery jobs..
We've also read of fast food restaurants experimenting with full automation when ordering..

You simply walk to a kiosk, select your order, and specific preferences of what you might want on or excluded from your burger, then put the credit card in or apple pay with phone and presto..

No more need for people to take your order meaning less opportunities for teenagers, the elderly, the uneducated and the mentally handicapped to find work
The National Bureau of Economic Research yesterday released a report showing that between 1990 and 2007, when one or more industrial robots were introduced into the workforce, it led to the elimination of 6.2 jobs within a local area where people commute for work.

Wages dropped between 0.25 percent and 0.50 percent per 1,000 employees when one or more robots came into the picture

In addition, within the years studied, robots were responsible for the loss of up to 670,000 manufacturing jobs, a number that could rise as more companies are expected to turn to industrial robots in the coming years
And as stated before, lower corporate taxes means more money for them to invest and experiment with expanding this technology

So if you see us critical of President Trump in the future, remember that unlike 99.9% of the media and those in the political blogosphere who want to eviscerate him personally, our disagreements are not based on hate, anger or a desire to see him fail

Instead it is open disagreement of particular policy and there's nothing wrong with any supporter of Trump to wish he go about things different on certain things
We hope his economic policies bring massive success to the nation including lots n' lots of good paying jobs where many benefit and as a country we're stronger for it

But like everything else in life, nothing ever seems to benefit the little guy (or gal) unless big business benefits first..

And more so..

The Road Runner & Coyote Show...

Here's Wednesday's posting a little early..

When yours truly was young and Saturday morning cartoons still existed, I used to watch all the Warner Brothers characters like Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester & Tweedy, etc..

And while most of those specific cartoons are a blur to me today, one specific cartoon which did stick in my mind all these years involved Road Runner and the Coyote because it was so different from all the others involving endless chases resulting in comic-violent calamity

In this one cartoon, it depicted what if the Coyote was successful in his pursuit and actually captured & ate the Road Runner..
So here you are seeing Coyote happy for a little bit as he rubs his full tummy (the actual eating of Road Runner wasn't shown) and then its very long periods of  nothingness; the Coyote sitting in the desert in total stagnation and him ultimately bored to tears..

Then it depicted a scenario where Coyote just stopped pursuing the Road Runner and occupied his time with other things..

Here the Road Runner becomes irritated and bored because there's no reason to run if no one is going to give chase

And the point of this long intro is that it made me think of Republicans and Democrats..
Neither party really wants to destroy the other even though for the betterment of the nation, it would be best if Democrats in Congress were completely powerless and impotent, especially the cabal of crap who represent the Congressional Black Caucus

Each side tends to need each other for their own nefarious purposes

How can the political game of stalemate and accomplishing nothing continue to be treated by those if there's no competitors to play against

And if there's no opposition party, whoever can they blame when policy fails and/or the nation suffers as a result of decisions made
What would Trump do if he didn't have those asshole obstructionist Democrats along with a lying, deceitful press corp. to blame for any failures

And how in the world could those rotten Democrats galvanize their base for donations and get them excited for 2018 midterm elections if they didn't have that 'fascist-racist' Trump as their fear-mongering pinata

Obama got absolutely nothing done that was positive for the nation and instead of blaming himself for being nothing more than a black fuck-up undeserving of even being President, he just blamed Republicans for blocking everything..
To be fair, if magically all 535 members of Congress were members of the GOP, there'd still be divisions, in-fighting and the political blame game would continue with both sides needing each other to keep the ruse up just as much as the current state of things

The pro Trump faction and the pro-Koch Brothers faction with cadaver John McCain and his merry band of bastards meddling about and stirring trouble

That's why it is so hard to really take anything they say or do seriously
Those ethically bankrupt Democrat Senators plan on doing everything humanly possible to block Neil Gorsuch from becoming the next Supreme Court justice and yet a few years back when he sought appointment to the US District Court, the Senate which was Democrat majority at the time voted unanimous in support of the man

Did the man suddenly grow horns?
When the latest debates over raising the debt ceiling take place, Democrat scum plan to scream bloody murder over raising it and do all they can to block it from happening yet when Obama was in power, they always advocated it be raised while Republicans said 'no'

In fact, when Bush Jr was President and the debt ceiling needed to be raised in 2007 we believe, that goddamn black toothpick Obama spoke passionately against it and even voted against doing so!

Then when he became President in 2008 thanks to an epidemic of white-guilt that infested the minds of independent and moderate-conservative voters, he ultimately pushed for it to be raised on 3 occasion during his 8 years which we all suffered through
It's all a big game really..

More precise, it is all one super long and tiring Road Runner & Coyote cartoon...

Personally if it was up to us, coyote Trump would capture, rip and tear that Democrat 'Road Runner' into a million little pieces then move on to actually fixing this nation in ways that will truly benefit everyday people
But he chooses not to..

He 'chases' just enough to give appearances while never so sincerely that his enemy is cornered..

Or who knows.. Maybe he is the Road Runner

He needs them and they need him and we all suffer for it

Trump Picking Up Obama's Financial Watermelon

In the very near future if he hasn't been working on it already, Trump is going to need to put a budget proposal forward which Congress, between its establishment Republican saboteurs and Democrat obstructionists, will have to find some common ground in fiscal incompetence

And in the very-very near future, they're also going to have to agree to raise the debt ceiling which the date to do so has technically has already came and gone
Last time it was raised back in 2015,the lil' brown Cocoa Krispie poop monkey President at the time took a couple moments off from endless golf-playing to sign a deal with Congress where the debt ceiling was to be suspended until after the 2016 election so as to not harm Hillary's expected anointment

From when the 2015 'Bipartisan Budget Act' was signed to present, the National Debt as risen $1.4 trillion

That is specifically $1,417,397,000,000 in less than 17 months
Who knows, maybe we're making mountains out of molehills..

After all those who believed strongly in fiscal belt tightening screamed at the moon that this debt was unsustainable back when Reagan crossed the $1 Trillion threshold for first time ever while building up our nuclear arsenal

Same people tried to warn us of impeding doom when it hit $2 Trillion, then $5 Trillion then $10T then $15T and no one's yet tried to call in the loans

Of course most debt is held by the Federal Reserve so its not in their interests to call it in and not in the US government's interest to strategically default

So who knows.. Maybe a $25T or $50T debt ceiling is no big deal
We are the reserve currency to the world after all..

Nations like Greece or Argentina or Venezuela can't keep printing endless money without the currency becoming worthless, hyperinflation occurring and the citizens feel the pain when the nations can't repay debts or secure new loans to allow for can-kicking

But we keep printing and creating digital money and all's good

Much ado about nothing, as some famous literary playwright wrote.
But let's pretend in fantasy-land that it does matter, that accumulating endless debt is actually a bad thing and annual budget deficits is unsustainable..

So what gets cut in the budget?

We know that if President Trump is successful, corporate taxes will be dramatically cut and only as a carrot to everyday folk sick and tired of seeing big business always win, the middle class will get a moderate cut as well

We also know Trump has promised to increase defense spending because of the ideology (right or wrong) of peace through strength and that means a military buildup
So let's just stop a moment and see where we are just based on those two sentences..

Our annual budget deficit is currently $571 billion (how much more we spend vs take in), the revenue which the government needs to pay its bills will be slashed further by corporate & citizen tax cuts and spending in defense dramatically increased

OK.. let's continue..
What many people call 'entitlements', a word we hate because it has a negative connotation (it should really be called 'deserve-ments' since those who receive the benefits are really just getting back the money they put many years paying into the system) will continue to rise with 24% of last year's budget ($888 billion) going to Social Security alone..

Trump says he will not touch it (good for him) and assuming he's 100% sincere in that promise, what gets cut from the budget?

Oh by the way, about 7% of the budget annually goes to paying the Interest on the National Debt..

Not the debt itself mind you.. Just interest..
So as we said, what gets cut?

Now they can probably trim a couple million here and a couple million there but in real world terms that's like an everyday person in massive debt deciding they're only going to Starbucks 4 workday mornings a week instead of 5 and choosing to buy generic potato chips instead of brand name

The bigger question than what is to get cut is how does this society of entitled, emotionally retarded adult-children, especially liberal snowflake Millennials handle things when something is actually slashed from the budget for the ultimate long-term good of the nation?
You saw how these absolute pathetic liberal Losers handled an election loss..

Imagine if someone actually made them face the true reality of our economic situation?

Maybe they wouldn't have as much time to color in their coloring books and hate being Caucasian

But no worries.. all is well..
 $20 Trillion and everything flowing swimmingly

Wasn't that Oreo cookie just the greatest..

Doubled the National debt in 8 years, pushed back the debt ceiling vote til' after he was gone so the next person in office dealt with the political fallout and fiscal pain and so many ignorant liberal fucks just love him to death for it..
Ehh..  so what's another few Trillion in raised debt ceiling among friends?

There's one universal lesson when it comes to accumulating debt..

When you have little to no money to your name, and absolutely no ability to pay back creditors, what does it really matter how much debt you accumulate and how much you spend if others allow you to continue getting credit?

Think of it as a life lesson for those fretting about their personal debt and thinking about filing for Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy

After all it is playbook for how the US government deals with things.

Sincere Longing For A Return of Trump the 'Bastard'

In today's posting we're going to keep it simple and sweet..

When we voted for President Trump this past November we wanted certain things of him and little of it had to do with actual policy

We did not care one way or another about health care because as stated last week, as long as one person who earns a living is obligated to get insurance whether he/she wishes so to pay for someone else, that is socialism-communism

So as long as that aspect remains, any and all other adjustments mean nothing to us
We also did not care about lowering taxes because while it sounds great to pay less, currently the nation spends $591 million more annually than it brings in

So lowering taxes while not lowering spending in kind means greater deficit and that means less $$ to states and local governments who need Federal money to survive..

And we absolutely are against the lowering of corporate taxes because most of those profits will not go to job creation but rather to shareholders.    Plus many corporations today are social-progressive liberal and use their influence to try to mold public policy in that direction
We also didn't care about building a wall..

We're all for keeping illegal immigrants from entering the nation but there's so many illegals still here that also need to be forcibly removed and we're not just speaking of the criminal element

Businesses that are caught using undocumented workers need either harsher penalties imposed or to be forcibly shut down so to discourage others

And we sure as shit did not want a race-panderer as President because we already have had that for decades and all that black ass kissing and ball-licking has not improved race relations one bit

In fact the opposite..  It just emboldened the enemy
So why did we vote for Trump and actively support him over 18 months?

Before we begin to answer that, we hope you the reader ask yourself the same question (assuming you did vote Trump) and then privately assess in an honest way if he's done or seems like he will do what you seek of him

For us, the first thing we wanted out of Trump was for him to be the exact same person as President who strongly and aggressively put down that vile bitch Megyn Kelly during the first GOP candidate debate back in early 2016

An aggressive bastard (we say that in a very positive way)
We got a small glimpse of the Trump we love during that famous press conference dressing down of the press a month ago

But now that he's essentially the most powerful man in the free world, we want to see That specific Trump go after the media, take down SNL and all the entities we've discussed here ad nauseum with sincere Fury, doing everything legally to make those mindless animals come to heel

So all that we've written about often so let's move beyond it..
We also want Trump to crush the Koch Brothers funded establishment wing of the Republican Party.. Garbage like that cadaver John McCain and his butt-buddy Sen Lindsay Graham of SC.. who spew more hate about Trump in interviews than they ever did with that colored bastard who preceded him

Maybe this can not truly happen until mid-terms when he's out on the campaign trail but if Trump does not start getting some political victories under his belt soon, even his most vocal congressional supporters will not seek his endorsement in 2018

And if Trump thinks he can't get anything done now, just wait until those soulless pieces of shit Democrats take back the House and/or Senate
This specific Donald Trump whom we see speak every day in speeches and meet n' greet sessions on CSPAN and online is not the person we excitedly supported all throughout that long, grueling election

We wanted a fighter.  An attack dog..

We wanted a sharp-toothed, acid-tongued, cruel as necessary, vicious, dangerous pitbull who would really fight to 'drain the swamp' and even More importantly, take whatever steps necessary to completely alter this PC social-progressive direction the society continues to be navigating

Once again.. We wanted the same bastard candidate who continually put down Hillary as the rancid corrupt cunt she was/is to be the Same person as President!
If yours truly was President, I would do everything humanly possible to fight political correctness and social liberalism starting with the Supreme Court challenging of the legal validity of gay marriage seeking to forever overturn it and force them back into partnerships

And once and for all decide if we were to be a nation that was pro-life or pro-killing of fetuses, and do so once I got my Supreme Court choice approved to ensure I would get my 5-4 court victories
I as President would also work with Congress to completely dismantle the Telecommunications Act signed by Bill Clinton which allows a few mega-corporations to own dozens of TV channels and hundreds, if not thousands of radio stations across the nation

At the very least, I would make the possibility of such a law passing be so possible that I would get these corporate owners to put their own foots on their news agencies to report my Presidency fairly, and in the case of Comcast which owns NBC among other networks, force them to cancel SNL or at least push its old-fart producer Lorne Michaels into retirement
As a spite move I'd even get personally involved with what looks to ultimately be another writer's strike in Hollywood except I would side with the producers and crush the writers' union (and any other Hollywood union if opportunity presented) like Reagan dealt with the air-traffic controllers when they went on strike in 1981

I would also push for a law that pulls all Federal funding (grants, student loans, endowments, etc) to any public or private college or university that discriminated against people with conservative points of view including hiring of Professors, guest lecturers, etc

On the K-12 level, I'd work hard to do away with specialized history..  There's no 'black' history or women's history or any other group history..  There is Our history as one nation.. one people..  Period
Most importantly I would set up a major Battle Royale with the Treaury to at least start the process of the eventual dismantling of the Federal Reserve which is nothing more than a parasite; a cancer upon our nation killing its host ('we the people') slowly by being the ultimate puppet master pulling our strings to an ultimate globalized One-World where national identity means nothing

We did not vote for Trump so he could be a typical business-as-usual President or panderer of every race, gender, ethnicity, background and sexual identity (He actually wasted his precious time last Friday celebrating Greek culture for fuck sake!)
With all respect and reference meant, we voted for Trump to be a mean, rotten, aggressive bastard who would treat his enemies (which are also the enemies of the nation) in the manner they deserved

To paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt who once said 'Speak softly and carry a big stick',  Trump needs to 'Tweet viciously and swing that big stick savagely'

If he doesn't start fighting back, begin to really put a serious hurting to his (and the nation's) domestic enemies and once again become the Trump that millions upon millions passionately voted, his Presidency in terms of it mattering will pretty much be over by the summer

Stop being Mr Nice Guy, President Trump and once again be a Bastard..

A True Understanding of the Hypocritical Left

This post might be a little repetitive especially for those who check in and read us loyally but sometimes it is necessary to really drive important points home

We wanted to take a little time to break down the absolute hypocrisy which are pretty much all liberals, especially in how they treat conservatives and really anyone who does not share their zealous Utopian view of how America should be
They say they want a society that is 'tolerance' toward others yet have none for anyone who thinks their beliefs are wrong

They say they want everyone to 'coexist' and love one another yet feel no love in their heart for those who don't like the direction society is headed and if they had their way, would politically disenfranchise them

They also say they are vehemently against bullying unless of course they are the ones doing it toward someone on the political right or someone of faith
They say through their silly yard signs that 'hate has no home' in their domicile yet deeply Hate and despise Trump with an irrational fury, along with all those who voted for and currently support him

They demand all the protections of the 1st Amendment when they scream how Trump is a Nazi and a fascist dictator during their George Soros-funded protests yet want to censor any and all speech they deem 'hate' based on their limited definition of the word

On and on..
Truth is these people on the left are insincere, disingenuous phonies worthy of a good spitting on the face

Tolerance and the notion of coexistence means you do it for All people, not picking and choosing some vs others..

It means you accept blacks and whites and gays and straight and every other group, and one is not made to be superior or given more power than another

It means you Also accept those who do Not accept blacks and whites and gays, etc..  You treat them with the same respect and dignity as anyone else and tolerate their different points of view as long as they do not cross the line into threats/intimidation, violence or anything infringing upon another's pursuit of happiness
But we don't have honest dialogue anymore on race, gender, sexual orientation or anything else what we all deal with in society day to day

Who knows.. maybe we never have

Not only do we not talk to each other when there's differences, we don't even talk through each other..

We just don't talk...   We don't talk to each other on Anything..
This is because it takes two to tango in a conversation of real depth where those of differing backgrounds and points of view want to make inroads

It means compromises and mutual acknowledgement of being wrong

In this society, when it comes to blacks and white, only whites are wrong and blacks never admit all the areas where they've contributed to the deteriorated state of race relations
Homosexuals never admit or acknowledge their sexual proclivities may be even vile, disgusting and/or immoral to others; there's no desire to try to bridge the divide so straight people can actually stand or understand them instead of this phony-empty PC 'not my concern what two consenting adults do' refrain we all say..

Same with people of different ethnicities and religions who will never admit to the so-called 'WASP' that anything they do has a direct causation to others possibly not liking them

No group is perfect and every group has faults and things about them generally speaking with absolutely irritate the other..

But to use a very crude cliche, liberals seem to think their shit don't stink and that they are morally superior.. Hardly..
Truth is historically speaking, Democrats are the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, anti-Semitism and anti-Immigrants..

It was a Democrat President (James Buchanan) who did absolutely nothing to stop South Carolina and other southern states from seceding and mobilizing an army in the months of 1861 before Lincoln took office

It was the Democrat Party who sold their political souls by agreeing to allow the Republican Presidential nominee in 1876 to win the election as part of a grand compromise to end Reconstruction so they could roll back all the rights blacks had been given since war's end
It was a Democrat President (FDR) that turned back the steamship St Louis carrying hundreds of Jewish people of all ages seeking to flee the Nazis, essentially sending them to their ultimate deaths and the same person who put Japanese people in internment camps during WWII

And as actor Robert Duvall once stated when asked how he could be an actor and yet a Republican, "All the atrocities against blacks in the South were committed by Democratic sheriffs."
These liberal Democrat pieces of crap have no moral high ground to stand on..

They have quite a rotten history actually..

So its important to know thy enemy and when comes to liberals and their hypocritical views and actions, they are really completely full of it..
