Sky Is Falling.. Government Shutdown? Oh No! (Oh Please!!)

The more we hear about a possible government shutdown, the more we wax nostalgic on the days when there was no such thing as 24 hour cable news

Such total irrelevance and yes, a shutdown is not newsworthy

Social Security and other vital services are not impacted, you'll still get your mail and and your cable, internet and/or cell phone will not be affected

Government workers may have their salaries delayed maybe a week or two then get their wages in a nice lump sum the next time its received

Police and fire services are still there in emergencies; the military will still protect us if enemies try to do us harm..
But this is what the news has become..   Sensationalism and irrelevance

If one really had the time and energy, commit yourself to a full weekday of nothing but watching or reading  news..  It does not matter what source or political spin for this exercise

Just have a pen and paper handy and jot down anything you read or hear that you find relevant, important, sincerely interesting and/or genuinely relevant to your life - local weather and how your sports teams did last night does not count in this exercise
Unless you are a total news junkie, we imagine you would not have very much written down after a full day of this

The President said or tweeted this.. The Democrats said or responded with that..  You won't believe what Celeb X said or did or who he/she is dating..  Terrible weather thousands of miles away in a nation you never heard of which killed people you never met..

And now 'Shutdown!'  .. Dum.. Dum.. Dummmm..
The only time anything eventual ever happened during one was back in the late 1990s when Bill Clinton was getting blowjobs from Monica Lewinsky during the lull and ejaculating on her clothing while Hillary quietly knew and passively accepted it because she needed his contacts to further her political aspirations

It makes us think of CNN..  No, not the rotten bastardized version it is now, but when it was respected back in the Ted Turner days

The network started its programming in 1980 and covered the Reagan assassination attempt but it took a bigger event for it to really be part of the cultural zeitgeist and it wasn't coverage of press conferences and budget deadlocks that drew the viewers in..

It was the 1991 Persian Gulf War..
Eyeballs were glued and Wolf Blitzer became a star..

If 24 hour cable news could have 24 hour blood, carnage, agony and pain to show to its viewers, that would be their nirvana

Covering possible shutdowns and last second deals to try to avert?

Well they'll take whatever scraps they can get to have filler between the ads
Most people really don't understand how a news organization like CNN or your local TV station

Let's say there are three events which go on in the country at the same time:  A state governor makes a speech and mispronounces the word television to express it as telly-vision, a black man kills 3 people while holding up a bank and a blizzard hits a certain part of the country leaving a foot of snow..

So what happens is the producer gathers its staff including on air 'talent' to plan the presentation of the news of the day
The temptation would be to lead with the killing since violence makes for great TV but in this scenario, a producer would choose to lead with the snowfall because you get good video or images via Twitter of cars crashed into poles and interstates backed up for miles

People like seeing others in misery so watching people in the cold looking glum is fun for those sitting in the safety and comfort of their homes

Then the Producer would decide the killings at the bank are second..
Now had the bank robber been white and the tellers killed been black, it would have been bumped to top story and all day the discussion could be about racism and how evil whites are

But in this scenario its black murderer/white victims so it gets pushed down to second..  Also in situations like this, the producer would instruct not to mention the criminal was colored

Finally the governor mispronouncing a word because its light.. 
If the governor was Republican, maybe there'd be some coverage of how stupid a person he was like that fuck media did incessantly to Dan Quayle when he misspelled potato

If Democrat, it would just be a 5 second throwaway news item

News is carefully crafted and constructed presentation of the inconsequential with secondary goals of instilling feelings of anger and hostility when political in nature while presenting no outlet or opportunity to channel those emotions constructively

There was a time long long ago when all the news fit to print was 8 pages and that included advertising..
Now we live in this information age where we are up to our ears in technology and access to news and know less and less about what is really going on than ever before

Just sad

So don't fret on this shutdown theater..  a last second deal will be done or it won't and most likely then a deal before Monday and if not, probably by Tuesday..

And no matter what, you are really not all that affected unless perhaps you wanted to visit a national park

The More Trump Panders, The More Pathetic He Appears

Short post today..

So it seems the 'shithole' faux-controversy isn't dying down, mainly because the deeply evil left thinks it will help them win the 2018 midterms and ultimately the 2020 elections, which of course is the only reason they care about blacks or anyone else
Here's the thing though which the despicables don't understand:

Anyone else in politics who said that term, even though it is 100% accurate because Haiti and Africa ARE shitholes like like its citizens, and in all likelihood it would destroy them

But not Trump
Remember all that complete bullshit controversy two years ago when Trump first announced he was running for President about Mexico and illegals..

All the pundits were having a conniption and saying surely Trump destroyed his chances to be President before even getting his campaign off the ground

Guess what happened?
Toward the end of the 2016 election, Access Hollywood released that interview where Trump said among other things he liked to grab women by the pussies.. etc..etc..

The media were spinning round n round in hysteria and glee that their rancid bitch Hillary would assuredly now be President..

Guess what happened?

And we thought Reagan was the teflon President
So he refers to shithole nations as shitholes and what, are we all supposed to be shocked or surprised?

Pretty much all his core supporters agree with him on it and he can ass kick and testicle-lick all the colored people he wishes and he won't earn a single black vote more in 2020 than he got in 2016..

Not one..
That's why all Trump's pandering is so disgusting and unnecessary

You do not waste a moment's energy courting and appeasing people who hate and despise you

People like to say as President, Trump is supposed to represent all Americans

No he isn't.. 
He is supposed to represent those who voted for him and push policy that will please those that gave their time, energy and donations to help him get elected

It was not black people or even women as a voting bloc who got him elected.. It was white Caucasian men and yet he like all Presidents before just ignore them and pander like the pathetic bastards that politicians seem inclined to be
Obama sure as shit did not care about those who did not vote for him...  

Why is Trump supposed to?

Why does he try to?

We wonder if 100 years from now blacks will still have such a deep inferiority complex that they demand constant pandering like today?

Or will they as a race finally gain some self-respect and dignity and stop seeking it?
Maybe they will still demand exceptionalism until the end of days because of the adage 'give an inch-take a mile' and God knows white-guilters have given quite a lot 

All we know is one day we hope this nation can stop with the identity politics and embracing things that absolutely do not matter like race, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation and just look at oneself as an Individual, not as part of a rag-tag collective

Gandhi the 'Racist'

Because yesterday was MILK Day..  Oops, we mean MLK..   And because we're sure the despicable people who call themselves Democrats are still hyping up Trump's 'shithole' remarks as if it matters we thought we'd re-post some real quotes of someone who actually thought blacks were pure trash and expressed it often in his writings

We need to choose what kind of society we wish to live in

Either one where being 'racist' is worse than being a 'rapist' and no matter how good a person you are or what you contribute(d) to society, you are only judged favorable if you have a positive view toward blacks and a 2017 worldview..  OR

We stop this nonsense and just accept the truth that a person can be wonderful and/or important to society and Not like blacks, and still be looked favorable for all the positive qualities and/or accomplishments of that person

The two are not a contradiction..

The following was written last year but it is just as relevant today:
We found an interesting article written a few years back in a black newspaper called the Atlanta Black Star..

In it, they provide many specific quotations by Gandhi taken from "The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi", a collection of his writings and statements during the years he spent working as an attorney in South Africa, before he went back to India in 1915 to fight for their independence.

In the following written quotes by Ghandi, he refers to blacks as 'kaffirs' which was the South African equivalent of us in the US calling them 'niggers'..  Some argue back then that the term had a neutral meaning but you be the judge
Indians Dragged Down to the Kaffirs

Before Dec. 19, 1894: “A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir.

Kaffirs Pass Their Lives in ‘Indolence and Nakedness’

Sept. 26, 1896: “Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness.”
Kaffirs Would Not Work

Oct. 26, 1896: “There is a bye-law in Durban which requires registration of coloured servants. This rule may be, and perhaps is, necessary for the Kaffirs who would not work, but absolutely useless with regard to the Indians. But the policy is to class the Indian with the Kaffir whenever possible.”

Indians ‘Infinitely Superior’ to the Kaffirs

Before May 27, 1899: “Your Petitioner has seen the Location intended to be used by the Indians. It would place them, who are undoubtedly infinitely superior to the Kaffirs, in close proximity to the latter.”
Indians Shouldn’t Be Taxed Like Kaffirs

May 24, 1903: “The £3 tax is merely a penalty for wearing the brown skin and it would appear that, whereas Kaffirs are taxed because they do not work at all or sufficiently, we are to be taxed evidently because we work too much, the only thing in common between the two being the absence of the white skin.”

Indians Forced to Live with Too Many Kaffirs

Feb. 11, 1904: “I venture to write you regarding the shocking state of the Indian Location. The rooms appear to be overcrowded beyond description. The sanitary service is very irregular, and many of the residents of the Location have been to my office to complain that the sanitary condition is far worse than before. There is, too, a very large Kaffir population in the Location for which really there is no warrant.”
Calamity Coming for Johannesburg

Feb. 15, 1904: “I feel convinced that every minute wasted over the matter merely hastens a calamity for Johannesburg and that through absolutely no fault of the British Indians. Why, of all places in Johannesburg, the Indian Location should be chosen for dumping down all the kaffirs of the town passes my comprehension.”

No Mixing Kaffirs With Indians

Feb. 15, 1904: “Of course, under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population and it is an undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen.”
Kaffirs Less Advanced

Sept. 9, 1906: “Even the half-castes and Kaffirs, who are less advanced than we, have resisted the Government. The pass law applies to them as well, but they do not take out passes.”

Even a Kaffir Policeman Can Accost Indians?

June 4, 1907: “Are we supposed to be thieves or free-booters that even a Kaffir policeman can accost and detain us wherever we happen to be going?”

Kaffirs Can Be Pleased With Toys and Pins

Feb. 2, 1908: “The British rulers take us to be so lowly and ignorant that they assume that, like the Kaffirs who can be pleased with toys and pins, we can also be fobbed off with trinkets.”
Kaffirs Are Uncivilized Animals

July 3, 1907: “Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilised – the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live almost like animals. Each ward contains nearly 50 to 60 of them. They often started rows and fought among themselves. The reader can easily imagine the plight of the poor Indian thrown into such company!”

Indians Must Stay Away From Kaffir Women

Dec. 2, 1910: “Some Indians do have contacts with Kaffir women. I think such contacts are fraught with grave danger. Indians would do well to avoid them altogether.
Still think Gandhi was awesome?

Now name one expression or action of racial bigotry President Trump has ever said or done against blacks, much less anything coming close to Gandhi in his writings..

If Trump is a racist, so is Gandhi..  If you still admire him, then Trump should still be admired

Trump Offended Many With His Words - It Does Not Mean He Was Wrong

~ A typical Haiti slum.. 

So we guess the big news story from yesterday is Trump referring to Haiti and many places in Africa as 'shithole countries

Personally, we feel the story of Wal-Mart suddenly closing 63 Sam's Clubs out of the blue forcing the ultimately firing of 11,000 employees for no valid reason is more important but..

So OK, Trump said what he said.

 And...?      What part was inaccurate?
The most recent study of educational rankings by nation based on science and math scores shows the US ranked 18th (Shanghai-China was ranked #1)

Norway, the country that Trump stated we should be letting more immigrants into instead of shithole nations like Haiti and many in Africa, ranked #13 globally

Not a single African country, nor Haiti was ranked in the top 70 nations
The Haitian Educational System yields the lowest total rate in the education realm of the Western Hemisphere. Haiti's literacy rate of about 61% is below the 90% average literacy rate for Latin American and Caribbean countries

That is Pathetic and African nations fare no better so why the hell would we want that garbage to enter our nation when with few exceptions they do not possess the education or skills to become productive tax-paying members of our society?!!
Haiti is high in ranking though when it comes to those infected with AIDS

Haiti has the most overall cases of HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean and its HIV prevalence rates among the highest percentage-wise in the region.

Is that who we want entering the US?

Maybe Trump should have instead referred to those places as hellholes..  Would that have appeased anyone?
People love throwing up the Statue of Liberty.. 'Give us your tired; your poor..'

It's a fucking Poem folks!   You don't base Immigration law on poems

Truth is very few of the best and brightest minds from around the world come here anymore and if they do its not to stay..

Rather its to attend our universities, get their Masters & Doctorates, then go back to their home country..  Instead we tend to get the riff-raff
A good as any example of how we always seem to take in the trash occurred back in April, 1980 when Fidel Castro told President Jimmy Carter he would allow 10,000 Cubans to leave the island nation to seek asylum in America to start new lives

Sounds great, right?

Of course ultimately it was discovered the vast majority of those who came over on the Mariel boat lift were released from Cuban prisons and mental facilities...   The scummiest of the scum

And what choice did Carter have but take in these filthy, criminal lowlifes..  Castro had manipulated Carter perfectly
Our immigrant policy is a joke because there is no consistency to it..

Illegals not allowed to enter but so-called 'dreamers' can stay indefinitely to take jobs meant for American born and legal immigrant citizens, as if they don't possess dreams either..

We allow people from the lowest forms of global society, namely blacks and Muslims to enter based on political asylum and other loopholes while other people from more refined, educated societies are placed on waiting lists..

And no, we do not want any more blacks..  Bad enough the 13% we have who actually believe and are treated like they are the majority superior race
Back in 1965, Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy pushed forth a bill into law called the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 and people then were concerned about an influx of too many blacks coming in..

So Kennedy tried to reassure critics of his bill with the following words:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same…

Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset… Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia…
In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think… The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”

So you see, Kennedy expressed and acknowledged albeit more eloquently than Trump how horrible it would be to our nation if we allowed African bottom-feeders to enter en masse and cause great disruption to the ethnic and racial mix of the country
There are some important lessons for Trump to learn from this so-called controversy which we hope he finally gets through his head:

1)  Stop pandering to blacks!!  Just stop already..  Stop pretending MLK Jr Birthday is important and Black History month is something special..  Stop using the hyphenated names and stop the black ass kissing..  It is sickening

The black population as a voting bloc will Never Ever vote for Trump.. Ever!
Does not matter what he says.. Does not matter what he does..

He could do an executive order that no black had to pay income tax or free all blacks from prison and instruct the police to never arrest those people no matter what crimes they commit, and they'd still yell and scream and rap 'Fuck Trump'

The President better understand this and quick!
2)  Stop trying to go middle of the road and work compromises with the enemy

Democrats are enemies of the state.. That's how he needs to look at them, so instead of all these tiring efforts to compromise and make concessions, he needs to actually be a leader and take the reins

Concerning DACA and the wall, Trump needs to put his foot down and say, either give me my funding for the wall or we're kicking those 800k illegals back to their country of their mothers' origin

No negotiations.. no bipartisan discussion..
3)  It would be nice if Trump runs again in 2020 and wins but that can not be his mindset if he hope to really shake the establishment tree and cause needed chaos and confusion among the DC power-entrenched

We've used this example before because it applies so well -- A long time ago, supermarkets would have sweepstakes promotions to draw interest where the winner had 2 or 3 minutes to go through the store, fill up the cart and what he/she put in there in that time frame, he/she kept
So the winner would rush around, frantically put expensive meats and anything else they could find in the cart and scurry about knowing once that clock hit zero, that was it..

Trump needs to have that mindset with the rest of this term no matter what his intentions are for 2020 or how that election turns out...

Ironically the rap group Niggers With Attitude (NWA) put the concept most succinct:

'Find them.. Fuck Them..  Flee'
Every time Trump acts like a conventional President, he gets screwed..

It was good he said what he did because it was the truth - The people coming in from Haiti and most places in Africa aren't going to be the doctors, attorneys, scientists and educators..

They are going to be the future welfare recipients.. the criminals.. the HIV infected..
If we as a nation are lucky, maybe a few Haitians and Africans immigrants will do some janitorial work

It is not politically correct but it's the truth and you the reader know it..

We'll be back on Tuesday January 16th..

Every $1 saved by Them is $1 More Paid by Us

~ General Forrest on the $100 bill.. If Dr King can have a dream, so can we..

Yesterday, Trump in a semi-veiled swipe at Amazon and ultra-liberal billionaire Jeff Bezos (who also owns the extremely anti-Trump biased Washington Post) said:

"The internet - they're going to have to start paying sales tax because it's very unfair what's happening to our retailers all over the country that are put out of business"

Retailers are not suffering because of Amazon..  Retailers are suffering because they make absolutely no effort to be competitive, especially those corporations that also have an online presence
We explained this last month.. Time and time again during the Christmas season we'd get coupons for various stores through email and it was for online only..  Go to the local store - pay full price..

Now why would anyone do that unless it was last-minute shopping?

So local store traffic dies down, the corporations complain about a situation they create (most stores' inventories are also a fraction of what's on their online site so their bricks n mortar locations are merely places to return online orders) and then bellyache about Amazon
Amazon collects sales tax on products it sells directly to consumers, but doesn't bother so much when it comes to sales made on its platform by third party merchants.

Indeed, the trend has already started at the state level where last June, South Carolina filed a complaint against Amazon  and the company agreed in November to take on additional third-party tax burden in its home state of Washington.

So let's get this straight..   Trump pushes hard for a tax cut that will knock down the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35% and yet is threatening additional taxes for internet based companies??

Amazon's yearly sales are around $160 billion..  That's $160,000,000,000

At 35%, they were paying $56 billion in taxes.. 

At 21%, based on $160B, they will be paying $33.6 billion which is a savings of $22.4 billion thanks to Trump.. 

Think that profit keeping will translate to new jobs?
If there ever is a national internet tax or postal rates climb, guess who pays? 

We pay it..  the average folk..  Amazon and companies like them are simply  the tax collectors..

So is Trump 'helping' working people, especially third-party vendors by demanding they be taxed and we the people pay more for our goods while Amazon itself saves billions annually?!

And that's how politicians do it (and yes Trump is one) - they give countless financial breaks to the wealthy and the corporations while the financial slack is always picked up by the everyday person
The thing is Democrats do it too which is why they're so heavily focused on social issues and identity politics since they know they're just as bankrupt on fixing the economy, lowering the debt and helping the middle & lower classes just like the GOP

So there's really no political party to turn to especially on a national level since the #1 purpose of the modern President regardless of party affiliation, is to make policy to help corporations make more money here and abroad

It's been quite a strange last 30-45 days for us in terms of covering Trump and the decisions he makes..   Overall we like him but we're not laissez-faire 'let free market dictate everything' fiscal conservatives and we never have been..
We knew we wouldn't 100% agree with him especially on economic issues but there's a bit of overload we're feeling in terms of how much he's annoying us lately..

The way people on both sides of the political aisle deal with budgets, taxes and deficits reminds us of a family of four where the mom and dad spend more than they bring in with their salaries

And instead of budgetary belt-tightening and prioritizing, they deal with cash shortfalls by forcing their teens to contribute more and more of their after-school job money to make ends meet...
One day people will understand how bad things really are and how no one in any position of power really wants to do what is needed to make things more equitable while still staying a capitalist free-market society

Until then, its business as usual..
