The Importance of Keeping Momentum

Yesterday President Trump gave a very profound speech in front of about 45,000 Boy Scouts and their families; the kind of speech those worthless worms on the left will mock him for but really was quite inspiring.

We really recommend you go on YouTube and watch it..  Its 38 minutes in length for those who have the time

While he mentioned political things here and there, the main theme was about success and the importance of doing what you love because if you are doing something you truly enjoy, you will happily commit all the time in the world to it and it won't feel like work

We've heard this from others as well and it's still very true
Of course it is not always easy to achieve this because if your passions are not entrepreneurial, then its pretty difficult to create your own livelihood as a historian, philosopher or an expert linguist in the dead languages

Still, it is the correct mindset to have in life.

He stated basically that people need to find something that makes them feel excited or motivated to wake up go to work each day

Even putting the work part aside, that is such an accurate statement
Every day a person should have at least one thing to look forward to..  Big or small..  watching a TV program or movie.. A special meal to cook (or cooked for you)..  Meeting a friend/family member..

Once more, this was something we heard others say to us but it just seemed to resonate a bit more when Trump said it

It is so important for one to learn to create their own sunshine
Trump also spoke to the massive crowd about the importance of momentum which is an interesting word most don't talk about

He told a story of a man named William Levitt, who after WWII created all the various 'Levittowns' that sprung up in places around New York, Philadelphia, etc..

Very briefly..  The man had high standards, was extremely successful and as such was extremely wealthy..  He then sold his business to a corporation and basically retired to live on a yacht

Eventually the business the corporation bought floundered because they didn't put the same care into it so they sold it back to Levitt but because he was out of the business 'game' for so long, he could not make it a success again and lived the rest of his life a wealthy but dispirited man
Nearly 7 years ago (Sept. 6, 2010 to be exact), we created 'Ants & Grasshoppers' with no idea how many if any would read it..

We just felt like we had no voice in the rotten stench which was Obama's America and was sick and tired of the continual lies about how the economy was improving simply because he was President

And we saw a speech on YouTube - we wish we could remember who it was - and he said essentially the best way to fight an oppressive media is to create your own.

Doesn't have to be a TV network or a metropolitan newspaper..  The 21st century is about the Internet and you do not need to be rich to create your media..  Only have something to say that means something to others.
The only things that were set in stone was we would talk about finance, politics & the world with a blunt honesty that no one else seems to do anymore even if it occasionally offended and we would never advertise or seek subscriptions..

This enterprise had to remain free.

So the fact that so many loyal readers keep visiting and the viewership keeps growing is all the momentum and motivation we need to continue
We hope we inform and educate, or at least to stimulate thought

But we also hope we can inspire you the reader in some way to not feel you are ideologically alone and know you too can create a voice & be heard too

There is a lot of badness from the left - in particular the need for social thought control so you conform to their way of thinking without even realizing it

And by extension taking away your spark to want to get up every morning and fight it
Just gotta stay strong..

Say motivated..

Stay excited about life..

And keep your momentum.

How Would You Like Your News 'Eggs' - Runny or Sunny...

Its the start of a new week of pretty much non-news as we head into the dead of summer..

Imagine what crap mainstream news has to pull out of its bum-bum to keep the anti-Trump zealots watching and reading..

So as we stated last week, we're going to sift through the sewage, find anything informative or even remotely interesting and comment with the blunt honesty you've grown to expect after nearly 6 years
A complete non-news item caught our eye over the weekend..

A liberal asshole (is there any other kind?) Congressman named Al Green (not to confuse with the very talented 70s singer) after failing to get his bill adopted to impeach Trump is calling for Presidents to be prevented from pardoning themselves

If any of us at A&G were in Congress, we'd push a bill that called for Rep. Al Green to go suck himself

Of course we don't think even in a GOP controlled House it would pass
Makes us think back to something a friend did back during my college years when she served in the student government Senate

During the spring semester of a given year, this one other Senator would like to waste time proposing bills and other nonsense that would delay meetings needlessly so he could have opportunities to speak

They'd never get passed but the goal really wasn't for anything he tried to be supported by the rest of the student Senate but merely to have some attention directed at him since he was pathetic like this Rep Green is..
The final straw was some kind of Amendment honoring JFK even though he had been deceased for decades and it wasn't even to honor the anniversary of his killing

So my friend got sick of it and proposed a bill that March 29th be made ' President John Tyler' Day and there should be cake, ice cream and such after the meeting that given day to celebrate it

Seeing that it was going to pass and fearing embarrassment, the Senate President took her aside and they agreed she would get $50 to fund the party if she agreed to pull the bill so it would never become official and no one outside the room would ever know
She agreed on further condition if that other Senator ever proposed something stupid again, a motion of censure would be voted on to shut him up

So all was agreed and from what she told yours truly, it was quite a fun party they had to celebrate our 10th President.

Now in a college setting, this thing might to some be a complete eye-roller but otherwise harmless

But this is the crap they do to waste time in Congress all the time and so many of them started out in university Student Government
The other 'news' item we wish to briefly cover is rumors that Trump wants to dump Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and replace him with Rudy Giuliani

If this becomes truth, we'd be more than happy

Quite frankly Giuliani should have been chosen from the outset..

He was a successful NYC District Attorney prior to becoming Mayor, was extremely loyal and supportive to Trump during the campaign, is not a pussy like Sessions and no one will forget his leadership during 9/11
When Sessions voluntarily recused himself from involvement in the Russia investigation, it was like backing down from a fight and placing one's second in their place..

Pretty cowardly stuff

So we'll see if this comes about but right now its rumor so has to be treated as more non-news to get people watching and reading

TV news in particular is such garbage, especially how they set it up with "analysts" which are nothing more than paid opinion givers with bias
Imagine if weather was covered like politics - You have a panel of 4 people, 3 of them who love rain and one who prefers sunshine sitting around and talking ' arguing for hours about the weather today in Boston or St Louis

Three panelists doing their best to convince everyone that thunderstorms are better than sunny skies and a token sun-lover there just to give the appearance of weather 'balance'

But that's news today and its not going to change any time soon..

Enjoy your Monday.. Hope it is/was sunny..

Stop Saying McCain is a 'Fighter'

The big news yesterday we guess was OJ was granted parole but since we genuinely don't care, we'll just devote a couple sentences to it at best..

People convicted of crimes are paroled all the time and remember even though he killed his wife and her lover Ron Goldman, OJ was never convicted of it

You can't hold a person indefinitely for one guilty verdict based on another crime where a jury was too black tainted and thus acquitted

So if you're an attractive, young white woman, best advice is to not sleep with OJ or steal his sports memorabilia and you should be safe

Now onto other things
We read an excellent article in the Washington Examiner which along with the Wash. Times are the two conservative newspapers to counter the daily poison that comes out of the Wash. Post

It was a commentary about John McCain's cancer and how others treat it, and made a really outstanding and rather brave point in its headline:

'Stop saying John McCain will beat cancer because he is a fighter!'
In the commentary which was not written with any hatred or meanness toward McCain or his situation, it was stated accurately:

"Many cancer patients and patient advocates have written against the "warrior" rhetoric associated with the disease. 

Employing such rhetoric can make those dealing with cancer feel they are failing and letting people down during especially hard times. 

It can make terminally ill patients feel that they are weak, or giving up, by deciding to choose palliative care options without undergoing another series of painful treatments that could only marginally prolong their lives. 
And it also contains the unintended but pernicious implication that those who don't live as long simply didn't fight hard enough."...

Lancaster University professor Elena Semino, author of one psychological study on the effects of war metaphors on cancer patients, said of her research, "Blame is being put on the patient, and there's almost a sense that, if you are dying, you must have given up and not have fought hard enough."

Writing about her cancer in the Guardian in 2014, Kate Granger explained, "I do not want to feel a failure about something beyond my control. I refuse to believe my death will be because I didn't battle hard enough."

Very true..
So why are we writing on this besides the fact we agree with the writer's sentiments

It is because we are just sick and tired of everything in life being given this pollyanna positive false spin without anything substantive or real to back it up; just empty words that sound good

And just so tired of a world where catchy slogans and meaningless platitudes are uttered because no one really wants to get involved or care about another or be there to listen if someone actually wants to talk on a problem their having.
Most people just really don't care about others and never will so when cornered, they will say empty words like 'Hope you get better soon' or 'I know you will beat this'

Try this experiment with people you know --  When someone asks how are you that you believe do not sincerely care, actually say something is wrong..

Make up something..  painful urination.. dealing with constipation.. coughing attacks where phlegm fills the tissues..   Whatever but don't say you're "good" -  now see how people respond
How many ask what happened?  How many ask what are you taking for it or make any effort to try to find out why you're not feeling well?

How many say "Aww, well I hope you get better" then skedaddle

John McCain has cancer..  OK, fine

We don't celebrate it but we don't pretend we're sad because he really is not a good person..   In wartime, both the good and bad, just and unjust can find themselves in a POW camp
That said, we'd never offer some empty bullshit periphery platitude like "Well he's a fighter.. He'll beat it" or '"McCain is tough and a winner.. He'll pull through'

How absolutely stupid can people be to try to humanize cancer?!

Besides how do you fight it?

You go through horrible chemotherapy.. You take terrible drugs..  You feel like shit..
Some will go through it all with a very positive attitude because they're positive minded to begin with or have a very strong, unshakable faith

Others will have a very rough emotional go of it..

What makes them not 'fighters'..  Because they aren't choosing to see the bright side of it all?

Some people commit suicide because they don't want to go through months or years of total agony and/or they don't have the money or support system to survive even if they do so physically..

Are they failures and quitters?    
If one dies from cancer, a gunshot wound or some physical trauma, does that make them a loser?

Wonder if someone upon witnessing Lincoln shot at Ford's Theater consoled themselves with "I know Abe will make it.. He's a fighter'?

Since he died less than 12 hrs later, we guess based on that shit phrase, Lincoln wouldn't be...

Neither would JFK or MLK Jr or Ghandi

Was Debbie Reynolds a 'loser' because she didn't want to "fight" to live in a world her daughter Carrie Fisher wouldn't be living in after suffering a horrible stress related stroke and died quickly after her daughter?

Of course not!
So let's stop with this 'fighter' nonsense..

Everything is G-D slogans..  'Alcohol is a disease..'  'Abortion is a choice..'  'Love Trumps Hate'

Fucking fuck liberals..

So much of how society thinks, acts and communicates is molded by Madison Avenue and the ultra-left entertainment industry, one really has no clue..
Everyone wants to get on the 'fighter' bandwagon because it sounds good and seems like it doesn't offend anyone

Except it does offend two groups:

People dealing with cancer personally or their loved ones..

And people with brains.

It's All A Game & No One is Letting You In On it

Because there really isn't much out there on a daily basis in the way of news, most of it being non-news which is worse than fake because it is all meaningless and irrelevant..

We're going to alter how we cover and analyze the 'news' of the day by spending more time briefly addressing a lot of little things and focus longer posts of relevant bigger picture topics

So we'll see how this goes.
The big news story of yesterday at least to us had to do with Trump's interview with the NY Times about his Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Yes it was quite a surprise he would throw his own guy under the bus so publicly, knowing full well the interview was being audio recorded

But the bigger surprise as we see it was that Trump granted an interview to the NY Times at all
Wasn't that supposed to be a newspaper he repeatedly trashed as 'fake' and essentially in the tank for Hillary and the Democrats?

It's kind of like picking a co-worker or neighbor that you keep venting that you despise then going to him or her as a 'friendly' outlet to vent your thoughts

Makes no sense..  Unless..

Unless the attacks upon the media are just theater
Notice that Trump has given interviews with CBS twice, NBC, NY Times and even CNN since he won last November

All enemies..

Then he vents and whines about how he is treated when he has powers to really curb and control them which he like so many of his predecessors refuses to do
Maybe he has no choice since 99% of the mainstream media is liberal but still..

Sometimes it feels like professional wrestling -- They step in front of the camera and yell they're going to do this and that when in the ring..  The crowd gets into it as bodies are twisted and chairs smashed over each other's heads...

Then later on you find out everyone are pretty much friends who go out to dinner together

Truth is every person who is President in modern history seems scared to death of the media and can't figure how to cage the tiger without getting bloodied up

Because the 'tiger' can be put down.. Just takes more than a couple tweets.
The other news story we guess is that John McCain has brain cancer or something

We hate him so much, we honestly don't give a damn

Sorry but we don't lie here or pull punches and not going to start..
Some have thought maybe this is why he's acted so erratic and viciously anti-Trump at every turn but he really was a bastard toward his own party for decades and not really a good guy

Anyone who calls his wife Cindy a cunt as he did his current spouse at one point during the 2008 election isn't someone we feel any kindness toward

We can use the word to call out people we despise like Hillary but no spouse should ever say it to another, not even in a moment of rage and why she took it and stayed with McCain, we'll never know
And all this outpouring of love by everyone including that disingenuous black bastard Obama.. Jesus!

If everyone admired and respected McCain so much, why didn't he win in '08?

You see, we're not politicians or Washington insiders..  Everyone here at A&G are normal people with passion and able to see things as they are and not as we're supposed to

We don't see politics as some game..

The decisions these assholes on both sides of the political aisle make affect millions of people, occasionally for the better but mostly for the worse
None of them really care about the middle or working classes because they're all obscenely wealthy so they haven't had to cut coupons or go to a store and tell themselves 'No' because the budget won't allow it

As well they don't give two shits about Caucasian people because it sounds too 'racist' to say that the demographic hurt most by the economic policies of the last 3+ decades are white men and so that wouldn't translate to votes

Identity politics is the name of the game even for the GOP

Even for Trump.
Perfectly OK to have scholarships solely for black children (even mulattos or those with 1% black blood may receive free college money).

Also perfectly fine to set aside $50 million in funding to start businesses as long as you possess a vagina (wonder if transgender people will try to claim the $$ too)

But have something for white Christian and Jewish people only so to benefit and help them then watch the heavens fall
So we don't make separations when we think of McCain, Pelosi, the Clintons, Obama, etc..

Don't give a damn if they're friendly or funny, or give to charity or would make a really great teammate in bridge

They're all parasites because they sought out power, got it then used it to hurt millions upon millions of people so to push their agendas.

So while we don't celebrate McCain's cancer, we don't feel bad either
No one is really representing you out there..  Not fully..

Not politicians.. Not media..  No one..

So if you have something you care about - a specific issue or a greater vision of how you want to see this nation in the near & distant future, you can't sit back and depend on Fox News or your local Congressperson to fight for you

How you get involved is up to you but its all about being pro-active

Goodness knows the enemies on the other side are.

Fake News? Nope.. It's 24/7 Non News

We guess the big news of the day for yesterday is the Republicans in the Senate couldn't get a healthcare bill passed

Or maybe it was Trump and Putin meeting a second time during the G-20

Or maybe the top story should be 'Same Ol' Same Ol'..'

So we'll briefly address both
When we heard about the Senate Republicans' failure to get anything done with healthcare we felt neither happy nor sad nor mad

Really didn't feel anything since we've stated many times Obamacare should be repealed but NOT replaced

Healthcare is not a Right; it is a Choice
The vast majority of Americans who didn't have health care coverage prior to this socialist-communist monstrosity could have afforded to buy coverage but chose not to..

Rather spend their money on cable TV, Internet, alcohol, cigarettes and a hundred other wasteful things that the poor and uneducated usually piss away their paychecks or welfare debit cards on

So if you don't have health care and you get sick, well, 'Dem's de breaks'

It's called being an adult, making choices and living with consequences
But since the US government like all other Western nations are nanny states, no one ever has to be punished for their actions and learn the hard way to prioritize

Health care is like life insurance, fire insurance and just about every other insurance - your choice.  It is not anyone else's responsibility to bankroll it to provide for another

So in a way we're glad it didn't pass and we hope nothing gets done..

Of course ultimately something will get done and everyone will continue to get coverage as it has wrongly become an entitlement but we'll let the scoundrels on Capital Hill worry on it
Now as for Putin and Trump meeting again..

So the fuck what?!

They met.. they had dinner..  We couldn't have cared less if they played Connect 4 , arm-wrestled and compared sexual conquests

What matters most and what those fuck Democrats do not want, is perhaps this will ultimately lead to much better US-Russia relations
Funny how those piece of feces liberals are such war hawks when Trump is in power..

What would they like to do to Putin.. drop the bomb?  

Just worthless fucking idiots.  Liberals..
Incredible how much non-news there is out there..  Absolute bombardment

We can not remember the last time we read or saw anything that was actually Important or affected everyday people's lives

Sure Trump is doing things to make people's lives better but it is not reported because why would those elitist media bastards ever give him credit for anything
Non-News is everywhere..  Politics.. Entertainment.. Sports

Most entertainment headlines are either obituaries or press releases by studios or agents which are re-written to look like real information

And sports..  Gawd!
Yesterday out of curiosity and boredom we checked out ESPN headlines..

There were 4 articles about this ugly mulatto prick basketball player recently drafted by the Lakers named Lonzo Bell

One 'headline' was that he was going to wear a specific brand sneaker for a Summer League game..

Another was his intrusive asshole father Lavar Bell predicting great things for his son..
Two others about how he's mentally preparing for the upcoming season

Does that bi-racial bitch work for the network or what is going on??

Then there was a video of former NBA great Charles Barkley shanking a golf shot and that was 'news-worthy' to a network that repeatedly panders to the inner-city colored population
And of course more Colin Kaepernick shit even though the Malcolm X wanna-be is not signed to play on any NFL roster this year as of this posting

ESPN should be Called Entertainment Sports Programming for Niggers..

One article after another about blacks reported by blacks
Recently the network fired dozens and dozens of reporters and TV personalities..  If you were Caucasian, educated and spoke with articulation, their ass was kicked to the curb

No place for that in a black-centric sports network..

Just really disgraceful how much non-news there is..

How much absolute clutter and crap fills these websites and 24 hour cable because they know if anyone ever talked specific policy or peeled back the veneer to see how truly corrupt and profit-hungry the entertainment industries and sports leagues are, they'd confuse and lose their audience

News simply put, is information that impacts or affects your life in some way..

Information about a road closing on your way to work is News..  Information about what the G-20 talked about and how Trump and Putin got along really isn't

What an ingenious way to keep the masses in a perpetual state of dumbness..  Instead of depriving or censoring, information, just overload everyone with nothingness so people want to cut and detach from it

And you thought the media was dumb..
