Videotape of Trump

Things to Consider: Trump’s Investment Portfolio and a Sly Tactical Con Artistry Called Bullshit. Plus my thoughts on the 77 minute Trumpathon Media Meltdown. 

Double Plus, Videos of Trump over the last 30 days!


Speaking from just recently watching several videos on Trump’s media blowout.... I can only sum up that display with one word….Pathetic. I’m also ashamed as an American to have witnessed the last 30 days of Trump in office. Witnessing the President of America, speaking like Trump does, I’m seriously ashamed, embarrassed even.

Unfortunately, as much as one can be willing to give him a chance, one must be equally willing to be ignorant, blissfully ignorant.

To what? The drama for one. The ridiculousness. The unavoidable ineptitude. The still lingering apprehensiveness of what Trump is or is not capable of doing. Fear. Division. Unapproachableness.
 
Politics aside. It’s incredible. How, by his design, he’s establishing the criteria for deniability. By thwarting the credibility of the media, posthaste, with preemptive undermining. Why? What looms over the horizon that Trump fears will become spotlighted by the media? What is it that drives him to provide this Trumptified base of “The Enemies of the American People”, in the media? Is it possible that he’s just being honest? Or perhaps creating a way to provide himself with a deniability route, incase devastating “factual news” was to come out? Hmmmm….curiously interesting, no?

My theories on Trump so far are increasingly becoming more and more accurate.
Imagine if you created a dumb down on intelligence gathering, public or governmental, by pushing things that are against you in the media or in the Intelligence community as legitimate enemies of the American people…wouldn’t your desired outcome be, having full deniability of fact under control? Note this, his media list of distain contains what outlets? VS…which ones that are not included?

Hmmmm….  History question, who was it in the history of the last century that in his first few weeks as supreme commander, took media outlets out that were against his rule? Remember this, if Trump dignifies one outlet as the only true source of “news” from his inner workings, we have a serious problem. Not that he hasn’t already done this, but pay attention to this warning of pretentious media malcontent from our President. It’s hinge on factuality he dons righteous….is surely by his design and for his own ability to work it in his favor.

Just saying….anyways…onward I go…

Who wouldn’t like to see his Stock Market portfolio? See, I wonder how much he had in stake with that oil pipeline? Boing’s stock? Hmmmm…. Think about how a tycoon would operate if he had the ability to change the fortunes of stock holders, especially his own stock holdings. Trump obviously has something to hide, as his refusal to release his tax records were purposely done to avoid public questioning of his first few executive orders. Orders and actions having to do with nothing else than making himself richer. Maybe?

Lets talk about his Russian connections? Or his law bending on his businesses…now…. I’m sure all those diehard trumpicans are saying “so what”. Blinded by their belief in his untouchable “no establishment” armor, they will turn a blind eye to his Russian dealings, taxes, business dealings, or anything else suspicious. Thankfully our CIA isn’t turning blind to anything dealing with Trump. The recent leaks about the CIA going noncompliant on a few things with Trump proves something is amiss. Vetting the President of America, hmmmmmm…..smart!

What if the Russian connection is harmful, then what? Curiously, what can we do to make repairs if Trump truly is a Trojan horse of Russian meddling? Everything would be under suspicion related to his cabinet and connections, but it may prove to be too late.

Although I have no doubt, the CIA already checked Trump out, and red flags arose….well before he ran and became President. Trust that! My worry is, well….read this. (Later) Soil the Trump name, oh dear god, never would he allow that! Again, going back deniability….media control….credibility….Trump holding the reins….hmmmmm….fake news, or fake man with a plan? Hmmmm….before the news comes out, make sure you blanket it all first with the title of “untrustworthy media”….are you with me now? Ah….yes….think about it.

Video of the 77 minute Trump News Conference Meltdown.

Video of Spicer and his Bullshit
SNL Video of Baldwin doing the Trump.



All the funniness aside, SNL has this ability to make us laugh and provide a sort of inner voice of what many people think. “I’m not alone….Baldwin is spot on!” Trump is that spoiled rich guy who when he doesn’t get his way, makes it known how unfair it is. It’s just that if you watch the real Spicer and Trump, the humor is reality-based by how sad and weak this administration projects itself to be. Worried about strange useless bullshit, like inauguration pictures? Seriously? The stupidity of it all, is the most alarming aspect and the funniest part, at the same time. Famous quote time, “How shallow and pedantic an administration is, or becomes, is only a reflection on the man in the middle of the spider web he created.” ~Willy Wonka. Just kidding, that was me, I made that one up. Sounds good, right? No? Oh come on, it’s perfect!

I’m entitled to my opinions. Right or wrong, and as an old mentor once told me, “Honesty is always factual to the witness who speaks of what was witnessed, for the truth is always in the eye of the beholder, it’s then your job to prove or find fact over honesty, and in that endeavor, questioning must always be a constant, and belief, a failsafe.” Actually, I just made that up. You’re welcome. That’s two JAK quotes hot off the gray matter, for free.

In actuality, I have hopes that Trump can do everything he’s promised, minus the wall thing and all that other crap, honestly, I have some hope he might do something good for America. Granted, it’s a small hope. What I want is for Trump to stop filling in potholes, and applying Band-Aids. These executive orders and policies he’s implementing are not full solutions, and that’s my problem with Trump. (Besides a long laundry list of things)

When he applies a solution to resolve an issue, it only seems to create bigger issues, or laments into a temporary resolve, a climatic build of reactionary solutions, nothing long term. It’s in this format of political fermentation that I doubt in his abilities.

Going back to his lobbyist policy for an example, again not a solution, but a temporary resolve. If he truly wished to solve the lobbyist issue, he could have banned it all together, but no, instead, another Band-Aid, a filling in on a pothole, nothing else….

I’m amazed at how everything has played out thus far, and as one American with a small voice, I wonder what the rest of America thinks. I ask myself…..Am I alone? Is anyone else appalled by Trump? Is he the savior of the United States, or the king of corruption? I just hope the next 4 years goes by quickly.

Peace out Americana brethren, and God bless!

NOT Making America Great Again

How can Trump solve American issues, when he’s creating larger problems? Oh and- When will it be “our time” again? And several other things, rants, and whatnot since being sworn in.


Seriously? I guess the “freedom of the press” right needs to be Trumptified? Ah, yes…that freedom of the press thing, what a bugger that right is. Boy, let me tell you what. Censoring fact? Bad idea. At least from my point of view.

It seemed like a stab at the idea of censorship faded, luckily for the press and propagandists, Trump kinda moved on. Although I do find it interesting that he is so easily aroused when insulted, or treaded upon lightly, proclaiming “fake news” on the subject of himself…ergo his egotistical demeanor and self viewed, self proclaimed “Trump Supremacy” over all else.

Even if a factual report becomes fraudulent or tainted, or totally incorrect, the job of the press is to tell America what the news is, what’s being done, where, and by who, and by what sources….basically….”reporting on tangible facts, whether proven inaccurate later, or denied until blue in the face, even when proven right”….that’s the job of the press in America. To report on the news, even if the news is “bad news” for someone powerful, or negatively directed towards even our new president.

The press though, shouldn’t be propaganda machines for any one side in the equation. That is one thing I will agree with! Score one for Trump! Now take away three points…

Much like fox showed it’s true colors during Obama’s duration, and now with Trump…(night and day folks)….(The old Fox loves Trump….hated Obama)…lol…no wonder CNN is in the crosshairs, they might be standing on the “outside” of political media corruption? Hmmm…maybe? Maybe not…? Hard to say.

Or my theory is proven correct, and Fox is Republican run, CNN is Democratically run, and none of this whole freedom of the press thing really matters, simply because none of the above has been acting like news stations, but rather, propagandist fodder outlets from the Establishment and should be banned from the true press…perhaps permanently? I mean, Donald called CNN Democratic Propaganda….so Fox must be ? Republican Propaganda? I mean, let’s just label them as we go….shall we? MSNBC must be Independent….CBS…Libertarian? ABC? Socialist?? Maybe Centrist? Let’s be fair Donald, how about Newsmax?

I mean let’s be honest about fake, propagandist outlets…or just finger point at only one? Hmmmm? (I can fix this though. A disclaimer that runs every 15mins that warns watchers that a “show” is politically biased, and should be viewed with care….and a political popup bio for authors who write.) ☺Or like the Republican run Newsmax, that targets the elderly with Republican propaganda.

Now, for Donald Trump to try to find a way around that stubborn right of free press, means he believes that he’s above the law? Possibly... As that action-packed morning panned out, it would seem the president didn’t know about that whole freedom of the press thingy….or did he? Lol… I mean if you know of the right, why attempt to circumvent it? Hmmmm….

Only they called it something else…. Exclusion?  Exclusion by whether or not Trump approves of certain outlets attending his press conferences? Apparently?! Or was there some spicy back padding? The White House speaker started calling it…. “Town hall meetings”, with certain outlets disqualified, or something, anyone remember what that dumb ass said? No matter….he’s a #&@% idiot, seriously, one of the most arrogant, dickwads I ever listened to. Spicy wiener….yeah him.

Anyone know of a website that displays a timeline of Trump’s actions/orders since becoming President?? Or maybe shows a timeline of both Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican powers actions since coming to power and after his inauguration? Hmmmmm……Google search for it….then come back here…lol…or here… I did it for you. DONALD TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER TIME LINE

Now how about this. My earlier predictions were spot on. I was right about that Canadian pipeline being hereone of his first serious moves. I’m getting good at that prediction stuff. Not hard really. Simply ask yourself, what would a guy like Trump do first with his powers? Make the wealthy, wealthier? Hmmmmm…..typical republican reach around tactics? Pinch a nipple while driving it home? Yup. It’s “our time” after all…☺

Maybe Trump has a plan. Maybe a wall will work, maybe larger numbers of border patrol agents and immigration officers will help lower costs, and taxes? I’m sure the few billions in construction costs won’t hurt us either. Perhaps some conglomerate will win the bid, and something tells me their stocks will rise, right after every suit and tie buys stocks.

I mean, when after only a week in office, our friend Mexico is making angry paper piñata life sized dolls to beat and burn, that look just like our president, you know it’s gunna be a bumpy ride. Folks, really…….. I mean, really…. If when, in his first week, Mexico is making angry piñatas?! That might be an issue and a possible queue of things to come, maybe …idk…lol…

What about the league of State Department management employees that the Trump crew claimed to have fired? All over what again? Donald Trump’s dangerous ego needed a massage over the size of his inauguration, verses Obama’s???? Some side by side comparison pictures of Donald Trump’s and Obama’s “swear in” leaked out, via Twitter….and boom, he fired them? Or did he become obsessed over the issue and he made those people walk? Naturally though, wouldn’t Obama’s be bigger? After all he’s black…no…no…not talking about manhood here folks, lol…but really, I would figure the first inauguration of an African American President would be larger than some Rich White guy?! Just saying….

Oh and that woman who refused to sign the travel ban, good job. Just saying. ☺

OK back to Trump’s diplomacy….

A 20% tax on imported goods by us, well….the only counter to that would be a 20% tax on the U.S.’s imported goods! Thankfully the Mexican President didn’t come. I would have expected Trump to hand him a vacuum cleaner while walking him through the white house. Seriously. Like…”Make sure you get the corners real good, and I like seeing a cross pattern of vacuum rug lines, crossing, not checkmarks, crossssssing. Comprehend’ay? Then we can talk politics, k Muchacho?”

Respect….lacking on who…? Didn’t our President insult Mexico when he vowed to build the wall? Perhaps not though, if you believe immigrants and illegal immigrants who cross our borders are human trash and unworthy of citizenship.

Or perhaps you’re like me and believe in having secure borders, but doubtful a wall would “prevent” a true threat to America from entering. Human ingenuity folks, see, there are many other avenues of ways for entering our country, most of which have nothing to do with our southern border. History lesson…ready? Hitler managed to land saboteurs via submarines and rubber rafts during WW2. Didn’t know that, did ya? Oh yeah, off the coasts of Florida and New Jersey. Google it. Lol…just saying. If someone is seriously out to get into America, they will find a way, and no fence, wall, or obstacle will prevent a determined mind or enemy from entering our lands. Bottom line, build a wall down south and the Canadian border will become the dangerous border, and 100X more difficult to secure.

Anyway….

From the dumbass wall and now a travel ban for 7 Muslim majority countries? For what? Have we had a reason to do this? I’m not saying we’re not at risk, but I am saying, stopping flights coming from these countries alone, is a total failure of policy. Should we be so afraid of a singular threat? That our president blindly produces orders to save us? Orders that have created constitutional issues, trapping AMERICANS overseas and refusing their return? I’m unsure if there is a law or right, but to tell American citizens, Muslim or not, overseas, in any one of these 7 countries, that they can not return, is an act of stupidity and disregard for American lives. Trapping a 3 year old Syrian girl belonging to a Syrian family, that’s becoming Americans? Dumb.

We need to challenge the Muslim Community in America to help our country that we share and love, to vet refugees. There are many great, patriotic, American Muslims who do not share ISIS’s beliefs or belief structure that could easily weed out all of the evildoers.

I’m not afraid….I’m not going to hide, run or turn yellow. America should not be so afraid of being attacked, we are too great of a country to fear any passenger on a plane? I mean sure, if ISIS had packed 200 terrorists in a 747, loaded it with weapons, and flew it into some capital city of the USA, somehow bypassing all layover stops without issue, and attacked us, then hell yeah, a travel ban then would work! Just because of fear? Where is the threat? Where is the record of incidents where threats came directly off a plane? When have we been infiltrated or attacked in any manner that would require a travel ban, since 911?

Executive orders without the representation of need or fact, demonstrates another failure of Trump’s ability to develop intelligent solutions. If all that can be dreamt up are walls and bans, and no solid solutions, fundamentally folks, were screwed.
Anyways….yawn…where was I?


Trump’s Masterfully Created Plan of greatness starts to take shape…Now we can learn exactly how NOT to Make America Great Again…in just a Few Easy Steps. 


One could expect this sort of Presidential behavior from a variety of 3rd world rulers, yet here we are, watching the plan of “greatness” unfold from our newly elected president of the most mightiest country in the world. Astonishingly, our president acts as if it’s all just part of the “plan”.

Mexico’s president cancels his visit and Donald turns it into a mutual agreement. Again, nobody can shame Trump’s ego, it’s untouchable, and Trump would not allow the Mexican President to disrespect him by turning his back on him. So he covered it up. Simple. Mutual agreement my arss. I know better. Piñata beatings and all, is this helping make America great again?


Will a wall make us a better country? Are we going to compare the Vatican wall to our southern border again? Sure, let’s build a great wall of greatness. What about the Northern border? Let’s wall that up too. Will becoming a fearful country, a isolationistic republic of fear mongering, going to make us great again?

The Yemen assault? I’m American. My country’s military and the men and women who serve have my respect 10x over. The loss of life of one or more man or woman wearing our military uniform must be accompanied with a god damn good explanation worthy of the loss. If it saved lives, then prove it. If it’s worth the cost of our relationship with Yemen, and worth the shame of what occurred, then prove it. I mean simply, what happened isn’t making America greater in anyway shape or from.
A lopsided ridiculous travel ban? This was certainly applied in order to make us great again. Just a terrible solution for it’s “true” intended purpose of “protection”. How does deepening the gap in relationships with people who are Muslim helping America become great again?

Downplaying Russian involvement in the Ukraine? That looks awfully cowardly, possibly irresponsible too. I mean, sure…let’s say that Crimea was just a reminder of the first step in Russia’s land roping, but nothing happened afterwards...I mean ..Putin doesn’t have any other plans, right? Let’s just say this, Russia is busy in the Ukrainian area, and to downplay that was a slap in the face to the surrounding European countries. Apparently WW2 was just a history we can forget. I’m a firm believer that if we forget the past, we are doomed to repeat it…hence the lesson not learned…Trump dismissed the reality of Russia for a reason…unbeknownst to the rest of the world. Only he knows how to make us great again, and that was just another part of the plan, that whole Putin shoe polishing by Trump, was just another part of the greatness program….rest assured!


Maybe that pipeline will create jobs. Not anything too permanent though, as it’s a construction project, a few specialist jobs and maintenance jobs will remain, but gas companies will be the real winners, and benefit long after we see the small insignificant gain in employment numbers. It will be the stock holders, the bond holders, the rich, the wealthy…who will benefit.

Maybe pulling out of NATO will be cost effective too. A Russia, US, China, European alliance might be better, then all of the middle east, Africa and all other 3rd world countries will be ours, muhahahahaha! Then a true currency exchange rate and a new dollar. The Super Power Dollar? Idk…lol

Maybe I should stop bitching, and just take it one day at a time. Maybe the 14…15….16…whatever orders he’s signed are him just getting things out of the way so he can focus on the people. The poor. The struggling America. It’s “our time” after all… I’m sure he’ll get around to us, eventually, hang in there, I’m sure he’s gunna get to the “our time” part, sooner or later, just let him get through all that “their time” stuff first...

“Stop filling in potholes DT, and repave the whole road”…? Something muttered behind me at a local gas station with a big flat screen TV…the commentator was talking about the lobbying rules Trump implemented. I turned around and said, “Your god damn right!” true story….
Here’s a few of my ideas…or one..yeah just one..

One idea or solution (if you prefer) is as follows…If you want to make America great again, make it easier for the struggling American people to start a business. Cut some of the bureaucratic red tape. Free up the self employment market place, help create job markets, and thus decrease the number of people on the system. Help with small business grants. Enough for a man to start something as small as a lawn mowing company, or become a carpet installer, or develop a cleaning service, non-mechanical remodeling, service tech, maintenance…etc…etc… Give a hand up, not a hand out. Loosen up the way things are done, make it easier, cheaper, and more profitable for anyone wanting to start up a business. Help with schooling for skilled trades, like mechanical related jobs, electricians, plumbers, or brick masons, construction trades, etc , create a small business bundle start up package, help with tool acquisition, allow for a tax free 5 year run at start up for first-time business owners….. and more,. Just saying…if you make it easier for the average person to create a business, eventually, they might be able to get off the system…perhaps then help America and it’s burden of welfare? Then perhaps they can create an employment opportunity, and eventually build a strong business, and have multiple employees? Maybe…lol…but that might cost billions, (I bet Donald Trump can get Canada to pay for it)…so if we took the billions to be spent on the wall and more border police, and used it to fund a betterment program for the economy and internal growth, that would better, right, but no, the man is focused on a wall and more “troops” to defend it, and the expulsion of illegal detainees.

Honestly though, focusing on only one layer of the issue, showing such a concern for an oil pipeline under the guise of employing people, is not solving issues. See…this is how you solve a problem, first…. you must get to the root of the problem, the very core, the very cause and effect of any problem, the very source…. America’s problem is the welfare system, unemployment, and a long-term, uncontrollable, unethical, corrupt government. ☺ let’s address the first two issues 😊. (Solution applied above)

I mean, if the problem is unemployment numbers, that means that there are not enough jobs, so create a fucking solution. Lol…when you say…”for every new rule created, you must remove two”…that’s a fucking band aid, not a solution. A fill in on a pothole, not a fix.

I’m just speaking my mind. Hopefully the 1st amendment is still functioning without hindrance? See, in America the 1st amendment is supposed to allow a guy like me, well anyone really, with the right to speak.

Although, from what I gather, there are some repercussions when you speak out against the government….apparently the 1st right of our bill of rights is arguably governed by what you say. Censorship in the form of taking away things that we might miss, but are not rights, but still something we should be allowed to do, like flying, or leaving the country, nevertheless returning to our country, should not be so easily overridden by a singular person, especially Trump. Apparently. Not that this has happened to me, but from what I gather, some extremist type speakers have lost their ability to fly outside of America.

So I hope I’m not an extremist. Lol…humorist maybe, leftist, no, but yes if you’re a labeler. I’m democratic, but not sure if I stand fully on the democratic side. I’m more of a libertarian, but rather more of an independent, a centrist libertarian, with democratic tendencies? A nymphish whimsical persona?

No… more or less, I’m an Americanist? I’m down with whatever is best for the people, and solving the complexity of issues America has, internally. Not internationally. I’d pull out of every external endeavor (if applicable and if I was president, which I’m not, and won’t ever be…lol) anyways, I’d pull out of every foreign country where our troops are in conflict or where America is intertwined militarily. I’d do a full international withdrawal of troops, wherever we have boots standing in foreign soil, and bring them home to strengthen our borders. Instead of hiring new people, patrol the border with some of our troops who are currently in deployment, and focus on fixing America. We spend how much a year militarily overseas? Dr . Martin Luther King said it best…”a country that spends more on military might, than social betterment, is fundamentally doomed.” I like famous quotes.



Not that I want to fly anywhere, and I have no idea where I could go outside of America, it’s not safe anywhere anyways…I’m American and DT is our president…. I might not be able to come back…lol

I hate flying. Fuck that. Small passenger jets scare me. Never getting on one of those again! I can drive where I like going. Montana, Colorado, Iowa, Oregon, Nebraska, California, Illinois, New Mexico, South Carolina, basically anywhere where you can fish and hunt. ☺Dense deer and elk populated states, and good fishing, that’s my thing. So yeah, take away my ability to fly, no problem, just let me hunt and fish, I’m good! Ever been to Montana in the late spring, freaking beautiful! Maine in the early summer? Whew, boy…nice places to stay or live….I stayed…lol…I wish I could live anywhere for a few months at a time and move on….I need one of those RVs …
Anyways……..

I mean, to protect our country from the threat of a lone wolf attack, we need to ban flights from Muslim countries? Let’s be straight to the point. Nothing we could ever do is going to fully secure our country. Banning flights, building a wall, increasing border patrol numbers, and hitting Yemen, isn’t helping keep America safe. What will make us safe again, is to regain the light of the beacon of hope America once possessed. We were once the country that offered freedom, and stood against the wrong and injustice of the world, now….well we’ve lost that. We now have our fingers in too many pies, we’ve killed, oppressed and created more enemies than friends.


We became the police of the world. Storm troopers of democracy. Freedom fighters and security guards. Oil tycoon military Chess masters. Whatever….If we want to be safe, we need to make reparations, admit to our mistakes and curl back our involvements overseas. I mean, the only reason ISIS is a problem, is because we destabilized the middle-east with our Iraqi freedom bullshit and then handed over Iraq to the very people who we were fighting in the first place….

Basically, we only have ourselves to blame for the state of our country and our problems internationally abroad. Trump’s ideas and ego isn’t helping us become great, he’s only making things worse…..in my opinion. Address minimum wage, address poverty, refund the 401k grabs, open up the tax bracket, create better employment opportunities with regards to self-employment. Come up with ironclad long-term solutions, not preemptive detrimental bandages. Fix the tax code you manipulated. Solve problems, don’t create them!
Anyways…

A country boy will survive….I can skin a buck and run a trout line…Hank Williams boy, he’s my favorite country singer. I’m well rounded musically speaking. Not into Rap though…Kid Rock though, hell yeah, I need to win the lottery and move in next door to those two guys. 😇 Actually, my wife wants to move up north closer to her family and the Canadian border, before Donald builds a wall up there too. Fine by me. I’m sure deer live in Iowa …right? Hopefully, unless they migrate across the border? Let’s hope not.
Where was I? Oh yeah…

Our time…it’s here folks! It’s our time, right now…or maybe….next week….maybe…?
Anyways, I believe the direction we are heading in is down hill, I know it’s only been a couple of weeks folks, but a test nonetheless, and I can’t foresee too far ahead, but, yeah….whew…week #5 will be interesting! Can’t wait for week number five. What’s next? Chinese people start making paper dragons that look oddly like Donald and burn them in the streets of Hong Kong? I swear, I saw one piñata of Donald Trump that someone must have put a whole lot of time into making, so much so, it looked like him to the “T”, over the top, combed blond hair and all. Remember Napoleon Dynamite? Summer vs. Pablo…he gets in trouble for the whole piñata thing? Lol…yeah…wow…alarming ironic similarities, no?

Anyways…
I hope you’ve enjoyed my rant… God Bless the US…
Peace out

*Trump the Trojan Horse of the Establishment






Meet Bebe

Aside from my astounding political commentary, once in a while I like to write about positive things. Lol This item of interest is about a great experience I had with the adoption of our new family member. Well, our first family pet, and to be honest, a long awaited family pet.

My wife has PTSD and is also pregnant, and with me working, we both wanted her to have a bit of extra security and some companionship. Well, I wanted her to have protection, she wanted a buddy. Luckily, we found both of those things and much more.

Meet Bebe. A Black Mouth Mountain Cur/with a pinch of Pit mix. Bebe was adopted at the Valley River Humane Society in Murphy NC. She’s an extremely intelligent puppy and like most Cur breeds, highly family oriented. She literally slipped right into place and adjusted as if she belonged. Bebe is about 7 to 8 months old, and she didn’t miss a beat as far as becoming a family member. She ran in the front door and was almost immediately “at home” with us and quickly found a spot in our bed the first night.

Bebe was a stray found running at large in a nearby township. I’ve come to believe she might have been slightly trained, either at the shelter or before becoming a stray by her unknown first owner. She knows sit and stay rather well, and has been learning a few other commands, rather quickly.

In the last few days she’s proven to be highly protective and alert, constantly making us aware if something seems suspicious. She is quick to sound off if she sees someone on our driveway, or anything that’s not part of this family coming onto our property.

She has taken on the role of walking the grounds with me at night,  (Checking the outside, locking doors and looking in on the kids) and she takes our walk very seriously, actually checking on each child and waiting for me to leave each room before she exits.

On outside “patrols” she seems to know what we’re doing and goes instant “offensive” should we encounter unfamiliar sounds. She gingerly follows my lead, and will freeze and go “sentry” if I stop to listen to crunching leaves or if I hear something in the field. On our first night she stopped to growl at a deer crashing through the woods, and fearlessly went defensive.

Bebe is highly observant to sounds, constantly aware of the kids, and quickly putting things to memory. She’s becoming a very well rounded dog both as a part of our family and as a guardian over all of us. She has taken on each child in stride, and has given each child a full range of reaction to their actions, from timid little hands to “too fast to see” autistic hands, she responds lovingly and patiently with each of our children. Amazingly, she has already timed their return from school, and waits by the door for 15mins before they arrive.

After reading up on the breed, I discovered that she carries many of the traits these dogs are famous for. As working dogs, hunting dogs or family pets, Curs have a natural ability to make great family additions. Curs are very territorial. Bebe has demonstrated this already. Curs are also known to be steadfast guards, this she has proven to be a natural instinct for her, as she watches our youngest with a very watchful eye.

The shelter we found her at was very well run. The condition of the kennels were very clean, a little wet from being sprayed down, but ready for viewing. Admittedly, I only experienced an animal shelter once down in Florida and I expected about the same when I walked in, but Valley River’s kennels were clean and the dogs were very well cared for.

The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and at the ready to help us adopt. We were treated nicely, and had adequate time to view all the dogs. When we picked out Bebe, the staff gave us a room to bond with her, and we were pleased with being able to get her out away from the noise and confusion and see how she acted. We both quickly noticed her pleasant personality and observant nature.

Bebe was spayed for us, had all her shots and rabies tag. All included for a $40.00 fee. We were pleased with the friendly service and the adoption process. Happily we brought Bebe home after her spaying and after a few days of recuperating from her surgery, she’s a happy-go-lucky addition and quickly fitting in.

Mom got her house buddy, and I got my protective, outdoor enthusiast. Not bad for a stray! ☺

If your interested in the adoption of rescue animals, like the dogs and cats we found at the Valley River Humane Society, contact your local shelter. If you live in the Murphy area of North Carolina, and want to adopt your own success story, contact the Valley River Humane Society.

Take your time. Pay attention to how each dog reacts to your presence. When your viewing potential pups, look for an observant, and focused demeanor. Look for eye contact. Look for friendliness and a even disposition. There’s nothing wrong with leaving empty handed, and checking in from time to time until you find the one that is right for you.

Bebe was well aware of all the activity around her at the kennel, but managed to remain totally focused on me and my wife.

Give the Trump a Chance

Trump finally makes it to the Oval Office and moves into the White House, now what? Oh yeah, Greatness….I almost forgot.

Well fellow Americans, January 20th, 2017 has finally come and gone. Donald Trump is now our new president and just like every new president before him, a thousand promises were made to place him in that position and now we wait to see if he will follow through with his promises or fault on them. Just as we have with every single president we’ve voted in since George Washington. Obama promised change. Bush promised growth, Washington promised better wigs…etc. etc. etc. Only Trump promised to make America great again….

Unfortunately, I don’t believe America wasn’t great to begin with. I know we had a rough go of it for a while, at least the middle-class and lower-class did and still is anyways, but America will and always has been, the greatest country in the world. Trump can’t take credit for that….or can he? I hope not, but maybe he can make what is great even greater? I hope so. In that aspect, I’m willing to give Trump the chance. If he can truly make America greater, then I’m game. Go for it DT! You can dooo it!!!!

But yet, one must ponder on the question, what will he do to make us greater?
Look, whether you like the guy or like myself, dislike the guy at present, I want what’s best for America, and for the people of America, above all else. If that means making what I perceive as the biggest asshat in human history as our president, then so be it if that’s what it takes. Maybe someday down the line I’ll post a complete reversal of opinion on his character and love the guy, but atm….eh…nsm, not so much at all. Why can he not win my admiration? I never liked him before he became even a thought of a future presidential hopeful. I watched his show perhaps a dozen times, unfaithfully, and felt honestly that he was horrible as a business man, and I saw goodness as a crudely unsustainable characteristic in himself…errrrr….his overall demeanor was strangely disturbing to me, in other words.

One thing you must understand, the effects of a President’s actions and orders can take years after their departure to come to fruition. Things Obama did during his terms, will show its effects during Trump’s term. Just like George Bush’s military blunders and money burning during his terms caused problems during Obama’s terms. Or like B.Clinton’s actions shined during GWB Jr’s terms.

My belief is simple, you can cut the head off the snake and replace it with another head (as with every election), but it’s still the same damn snake from the neck down…and it takes years longer than the terms of time allotted for a president, to see the true effects of his presidency take place, and thus, change the snake. Then, we start again with another new head and the process repeats. Trump on the other hand seems at the ready to bypass this and speed along desired changes. Fluidity in functionality on a direct result basis, is not how it works.

Just replacing one man for another, seems to have done very little for us as a whole over the years. How much can a president really do for the good of our country, when doing what’s bad for us seems to be so instantaneous? I mean War could start tomorrow, but changing the misfortunes and making changes for the betterment of the struggling masses yearning to breath free, takes years.

Honestly, there is nothing that Trump can really do to change America and make it “great” again quickly, in the same speed of business, unless he writes his own laws, and changes the rules. Something he has already been making headway with, as nepotism rules apparently don’t apply and ignoring CIA warnings are below him as well. I’m sure he can push through a few fast acting changes, but the effects will not fully proof until later.

See, here’s the thing. Trump has never held office before, he’s never been a political facet or what I would consider a “Worldly Leader”, which to some of us is a good thing. It makes him an “outsider”. Well judging by his gala guest list and the appointments he made for his cabinet, he’s definitely never been an “outsider”. How can an outsider make such insider choices? Tell me, how is it that every head of office he appointed is so well connected? If he truly was or is an outsider? Better yet, how can a man so well un-entrenched in the establishment, ever appoint such establishment entrenched appointees? I hope I made that question clearly understandable!? 😕 Just saying….lol

He’s run a multifaceted business, with only subpar success in some areas and somewhat questionable success in others. Hell, he made more money in his TV show then he ever made with his businesses. My opinion anyways…

The thing is, people constantly try to envelope Donald’s business abilities with running this country as a “same thing” scenario. The problem is, in business you can make changes quickly, almost effortlessly with just a single command. “I want everything that’s red painted orange.” OK done. Now in the office of the white house, you could say the same thing, and it will happen, but it will take running the gauntlet of bureaucracy and red tape to get things done, it’s not a simple flip of the switch and a command, it’s time, effort, and patience. Does DT have that ability?

He has already placed American interests in Europe and NATO at risk instantaneously, and he also started waves with foreign leaderships across all the ponds, instantaneously. He will, without a doubt, maybe, guessing here….but,  I think he will start a nonaggression pact as soon as he can with Russia and China, in order to pull the US out of harms way in their endeavors.

He’s not going to make America great again by changing circumstances or addressing problems internally in America, instead it seems, he’s benching this country’s so-called outside obligations and looking the other way to create financial reform derived from centralizing capital. Which in return, he will burn bridges and friendships America has had since the dawn of time in order to build up a surplus of monies meant for holding down communism’s rise overseas. It will take that kind of isolationism in order to make us great again. In that sense, his business guile comes in handy. If your landing in the red ink due to obligations outside of the parent company overseas, you might cut off the foreign branches to get back into the black ink back home….no?

The whole “America First” slogan thingy Trump is taking direction with was first started before America joined WWII by a man who somewhat idolized Hitler…(just history stuff, not bringing up old Adolf for any other reason.*1) Honestly though, that slogan was first used when America was at the precipice of going to war in the big number 2 and then well into big number 2…. (An isolationist’s slogan found painted on a US WW2 tank with a German tank round shot through it, seen in a Ken Burns film about the battle of the bulge, The Ghost Front….ironically Trump’s new slogan?…uuugh)



Trump made his inauguration speech prophetic to the tune that his presidency was a win for all of us, weaker, hardworking, poverty to middle-class Americans. Stating that the establishment had their time, and now it’s our time. (The struggling people of America. *2) ( Ummm….really? Did you see the guest list for his gala?) Yeah, I didn’t see any blue collar, time clock punching people on that list, did you? I mean, most if not all of his guests wore fur coats and arrived by limousines that they owned, not rented. Just like every Bush inauguration. Boy I miss Bill Clinton, he opened the white house and shook hands with anyone willing to wait in line…Trump opened the wet bar and got his ass kissed by the richest of the rich who are very much just like him….Trump is who he is…isn’t he? I respect that, and expected that, but I wonder how much of “our time” was on his mind that night? I also wonder how many of those establishment types that attended his gala thought it was “our time” as they filtered through the front doors?

The bottom line is, I don’t trust Trump. I think he’s a fraudulent mistake, and yet….I’m willing…well…not willing, but fastidiously waiting to see what he can actually bring to the table, and what he has up his sleeves. In other words, I don’t believe in him, I doubt his motives, his honesty and his character. But….what can we do folks? Wait and watch, and pray…? Pretty much. Nothing new there.

I’m just empathetic and suspicious towards his endowment of being President. I feel nervous about placing America’s future in Donald Trump’s hands. It’s hard to feel comfortable with the idea that the same man who tried to copyright the words, “Your Fired!” is now in control of this country. I find him incredibly difficult to trust , unceasingly disrespectful, unpredictable, unevenly tempered and grossly weak and lacking in character of what I would think of as a man, who should be in control of the most powerful country in the world.

Just sayin …
Hoping for the best….
Peace out homes

Blackmailed Presidency?

Has Russia’s Lord of the rings, Vladimir Putin,  just weasel in the biggest attack on America? And is Trump gutless?


Ponder upon this tidbit of conspiracy theory, a tall tail of a pipe dream….. but if true…..Russia just tipped the scales.

What if Russia does have Trump on film doing god knows whatever? (Think about it for a moment)

How much of an issue is that?? Well, look at his choices of staff. How much of a Russian influence do you see in his choices? (Think about it for a moment.)

Now…What if….By using the dirty video footage as blackmail, Russia forced Trump to align his cabinet choices for Russian espionage?

We may have possibly witnessed one the most complex hostile internal takeovers ever devised. What if, right now, Putin has snuck in his components for an attack on America from within? (Think about it for a few.....now process the interception of Russian celebrations after his win?)

Now consider this….

Would you be surprised if it was all true? What if Russia helped get Trump in, then twisted his arm by divulging they had him on video participating in some crude sexual act?

Would Trump’s pride be more important than American security? What if he was too fearful of it leaking out, and everything he’s done, so far, has been done under the command of a blackmailed man?

Think about it. ….

Trump Commentary

Predictions and extremely drawn-out, ruthless comments, and uninventive rhetoric: On Donald Trump as President….


The “complexity” of Donald Trump sitting in the Oval Office, makes for a daunting task when it comes to making any form of prediction. So far, old Donald Trump has proven to be extremely difficult to predict. Not that I’m clairvoyant or accurate in my predictions. Let’s face it, I’m just writing this post in the attempt to voice my opinion. I’m not sure if I’ll get 20 views in a years time after posting this, so, yeah, not really all that concerned about my predictive powers, telepathic powers on the other hand would be cool, but yeah…anyways….

He also falls extremely short in the department of consistency, not to mention lately in his appeal and honorability. No… I’m not going to indulge myself on the platter of crap mounting up behind him as his wake pushes onward into stupidity, as I could easily engorge myself on the plethora of material, and my god, the temptation is there, but I won’t wade off into that quagmire too awfully deeply, I promise. Sorry. His likeability is a whole other issue beyond discussion here. I’m not too sure what the textual character limit is on blogger, but I’m sure if there is a limit, we’d reach it on just a time line of trump blunders.

I will say this though…

What the hell did we think we were doing, when we elected this $#@&% as our president? Alas, I digress…what more can I add here? Enough said…. Well… no…. I’m not done yet….almost though, almost. (I didn’t vote for him…btw) ☺

His appeal and what not, isn’t really the issue, other than it reflects on who he is as a person, and who we are as a nation. Again, that’s a whole other issue.

Lets explore where he’s been consistent. 1. Back paddling. 2. Gross immaturity for a man his age. 3. His character? 4. His capacity for ruthlessly blaming the media for lying about him, when it’s spotlighting truthfulness. 5. Creating his own self imploding presidency?

Look, I really don’t like the man at the moment, and there are tons of reasons for that going on right now. I’m far from alone. Lot’s of people, even republicans I know who voted him in, are also looking at his hot headed mentality, and overall truthful demeanor and wondering, what the fuck did we just do? That opinion is predictively becoming pretty consistent, but everything else is a guess at most when it comes to his next steps as president. Which was the point of this post….predictions…

 Predictions….ahhh yes….predictions….

It’s incredibly difficult to judge what his plans are or in which direction he might go on anything of importance. Yet, judging by his actions, his comments, and his overall persona, one can assume, America might find itself looking back at Obama’s legacy and thinking maybe things weren’t so bad after all. Then again, who knows. I can only predict that he’s one awkward, self absorbed, SOB, with a tendency to act the part. That’s not a prediction though, or is it? I guess it all depends on what kind of looking glass your viewing Trump with. A kaleidoscope or a pair of rose colored Republican Lennon sunglasses….me I’m wearing nothing on my eyeballs…I like seeing things clearly.

Soooooo…… Trumpty Dumpty made fun of a disabled reporter?! So what!
Well….actually, I have a “so what”….it’s a shameful, disgraceful, dishonorable act, done by a man we’ve elected to represent our country as its leader, that’s a pretty big fucking “so what”. An act such as his “funning” of a disabled person, in itself, tends to show us what kind of man Donald Trump really is, on the inside. Golden showers make you a sadomasochist, by design, no?  Yet, we elected the biggest “looser” calling asshat ever derived by a pair of mating humans as our next president??? Says a lot for our country. Welcome to America….where you can be a crack head and mayor of our nation’s capital, twice…and apparently a sadomasochist can also become president ?!?! Sweet….lol….I mean, WOW…really…lol

The “I’m better than you, rot in hell” Trump mentality, only casts a predictive sense of failure on his coming single tenure as acting president. Ha! See that? I made a fucking prediction! Yeah, I don’t see a second one coming along after this display. He hasn’t even had the tour of the white house yet, and already, he’s taking advantage of his authority…. Yeah the whole son-in-law thing. Nepotism anyone? I wonder how far he’ll try to go with that law bending? Anyways….it’s not like different rulers from other countries throughout history didn’t do the same. I mean, Hitler ignored, lied, and rewrote the laws of his country to suite his needs as soon as he had the power to do so. The enabling act? Anyone?

No…I’m not comparing Hitler to Trump, or anything, I swear! But throughout history, strong last names adorn by powerful people, tend to become problematic. Napoleon? Stalin? Hitler? Fredrick? Orville Redenbacher? Putin? Trump??



Let’s look at current events….shall we?

The “super expensive”, overfunded “Ethics Committee” is being gutted? Hmmmm…. Nothing tells me anything good is coming from this move.

When you remove oversight committees or ethical supervision committees, from a crowd of unethical wealth driven leadership, it only means one thing. Someone has plans to be unethical. Well, not someone, singularly, but someone as in the whole family of degenerative asshats who now control the house.

If the first thing the Republican party looks to do, is to remove ethical supervision, then one can guess that the Republican party is looking to get back to what they do best, making themselves wealthy and raking the people of this country over the coals for better financial gains.

So….. I predict that the first year with Donald Trump and the Republican party in control, will be a year of selfishness and wealth creation, with very few actual perks directed towards the people who elected them in.

America can look forward to watching our Republican leadership make all kinds of deals and moves that will line their pockets. I promise, America will be turned upside-down in the first year with promises of reform, only we will get the typical republican reach around while we’re getting screwed. Obligations and ethics will go out the window, and we will see horrible things happen as far as wealth creation and unethical policy changes….maybe….not sure really. Guessing.

Alas, you could expect the same from the democratic party too, if they managed to get back in power, like not too long ago, but it’s the Republicans who are more candid and open about their true endeavors. I mean, shit…they will rape our country openly and gleefully, right in front of us by making sure every loophole and avenue of wealth creation works in their favor, and doing it all under the guise of “for the greater good” & “job creations”….pay close attention to what gets pushed through the golden gates of Congress in the first year with DT in the big house. Congressional pay raise anyone? Naw…..they wouldn’t….would they?

Things like the health bill act “reforms” that will be geared towards greater health-care cost generation for turning around shrinking stocks in medical related markets, and by removing the “stranglehold” on businesses, and employees locked into Obama care, by reverting back to healthcare before Obama care, without the perks. See, it’s my belief that stockholders, special interest groups, and corporations hold the reins of our congress, which means, judging by the way a republican controlled congress has been known to function, Obama care, or the affordable care act…key word….”affordable”, will be replaced with the  “Your going to pay out your ass for care act”…

The whole lobbyist lockout order from Trump….why 5 years, why not abolish lobbying all together? Meanwhile, anyone else can represent a lobbying group, be it for businesses or corporations and that order doesn’t stop anyone from consulting for a lobbyist group either, does it?

Other predictions?

Deforestation and stealing away public lands, and all under the title of “job creationism”, typical mumbo jumbo shit we can expect, nothing new. After all, if you want to preserve lands for our future generations, you’re a tree hugger. Lol…
Now here’s where my predictions get a wee bit more stranger. I predict that with DT’s hot headed demeanor, we will fall into a foreign conflict or two right off the bat. First in Poland, then the Asian Pacific regions, perhaps the Philippines first, then furthermore with North Korea. NATO will help drag America into something soon…maybe….

I also think that Russia will heat things up in the Ukraine as well, while flammability remains in the middle east, thus placing hot headed Trump in a situation where subtleties are not his strong point. Then his next step will be playing military chess with anyone who goes against US intervention, in which case you can assume his actions will build up and lead us into long conflicts on many fronts. I sincerely hope that I’m wrong on this one, but the only consistency Trump has displayed so far has been his inability to take no for an answer. So if we had a conflict heating up, how do you think he would handle it? Hmmmmm? ( I left out issues with China and the recent 3,400 US Troops being deploying to Poland….just to give us hope…lol)

See, I think Russia wants their pipelines to run into Europe so badly, that they are hoping America will be too overly committed on rebuilding relationships with Asia, fighting North Korea and too deeply involved with the middle east to stop Russia from advancing on Ukrainian Poland desires. That’s my thought anyways. Poland always seems to be a war magnet, who the hell wants to live in Poland anyways? Better yet, did the Polish military finally get rid of the lances and horses? I mean. They have a military, right? This time?

Meanwhile….



Before I close, I wanted to run something by my readers….

If there is a dirty video of DT doing nasty stuff and playing golden shower god…wait…let me restart….IF…if the media is to blame for Donald Trump’s misfortunes, rhetoric, and character, then who do we blame for downplaying it all? I mean, Shawn Hannity…(Retardican Media Puppet*)…if Hannity thinks the media is to blame for all of Donald Trump’s fuck ups, then who is truly responsible for delivering the spot light on his fuck ups? What I’m trying to get across is this….pay very close attention to who tries to smooth it all over in the media and who is bringing it to the surface. Those in the media that downplay Donald Trump’s actions, are the media outlets you need to stay away from. When some douchebag (like Hannity) tries to downplay Trump’s fuck ups, and stands behind him blaming the media, and the exiting administration for Trump’s bad misfortunes, it’s time to get away from those douchebags. I mean, shit….let’s be honest. Trump is turning out to be America’s biggest mistake, problem, and issue since Ted Kennedy…lol…no but really….who is to blame here? Everyone besides Donald Trump, or Donald Trump? If you think the Media is to blame, or anyone besides Donald Trump…then please leave my page and never come back…lol…seriously though…who is to blame for Trump’s fuck ups? Matt Lawler? Dan Rather? Or Donald fucking Trump?

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe speech? Streep said basically that Trump's attack on the New York Times reporter legitimized bullying. My take… She’s right… I mean… consciously, in every American , there has to be that little voice saying, “Boy, ya know…she’s right! I mean, what more needs to said, this is the guy we have for a president.” Well, maybe not that same exact little voice, but we are hearing something like “wtf” going off in the recesses of our gray matter, aren’t we? Being a Hillary Clinton lover, or a Trump lover doesn’t matter at this point, does it? We’re all thinking the same thing…. More or less, and more power to Streep for speaking out…over rated actress or not…lol…she’s right!

I’m particularly focused on the way things are heating up in the world, especially against the favor of American interests. Pay attention to the next few weeks from now. Let’s see how welcoming the world is to our new commander in chief. Alas, let’s see how welcoming he makes the world feel….better yet…let’s see his golden shower sex tape surface and watch how the world reacts then…because honestly…Trump isn’t getting any better at anything, besides for blaming everyone for everything he’s done wrong…making that the most openly apparent, consistent, predictive thing he knows how to do, better than anything else.
