Collectivists of the Washington establishment, representing both major parties, have analyzed the 2012 election results and come to a lovely conclusion: old white men are the problem. The only difference of opinion between the two factions regards how one ought to handle it. (snip) Republican experts, as the reluctant stewards of these cantankerous fogies, are more circumspect: they merely want to leave Grandpa ranting in the corner with his talk radio shows

Old white guys are a big part of the golden goose but who cares,kill them off and borrow money from China to carry out all forms of social justice.

Neither of my sons - grown men in 30´s and 40´s - get it. They roll their eyes when I try to tell them what´s going wrong. The younger one especially sighs and tunes me out. So - I say nothing now. They don´t even understand what they´ve lost.

I lived during a wonderful time in this country - thanks to men like my dad and uncles who went to war, came home, built homes and families. Those days are long gone. One day these young ones and illegal aliens who think they are finally getting a piece of the American pie will understand just what they have allowed to happen.

Sad but true, and these 2 generations don´t even know that they don´t know much. Over the past several years, we have watched business entrepreneurs pass the family-built organization into the hands of their spoiled children .... only to see the fruits of their years-long labor crumble, while Sonny Boy ´played the role´ of Mr. Important.
.... A famous national pharmacy business was saved only because the Board of Directors took it away from Sonny and fired the remaining in-house incompetents. A Pennsylvania department store chain was saved when the namesake business builder came out of retirement to rescue his stores from the incapable nephew who didn´t get it.

They need Grampa more than ever, and I wonder which smart business owners are going to rehire the ´old guys´ who actually understand what it takes to keep the doors open.

We will get no pills, be handed a small bowl of peas, and be told to shut up and go eat them in the corner. I, for one, and going to eat all my peas and then some, spend every last dime, apply for every obaMAO giveaway, and leave the little snots NOTHING but the bill.

This Grandpa is feed up with a left that used Principles like inclusion and diversity right up to the time they thought they have the upper hand to suddenly become the Racist themselves. This Grandpa did not spend thirty years in the military to stand down from a fight now. Intercity gang bangers and little girls who demand I pay for their contraceptives do not make a practical fighting force and as T. Jefferson said "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure." I Ready bring it on.

Thats right. Anyone old enough to have seen or been taught the inevitable consequences of communism must be told to shut up. If that doesnt work, there will be other inducements later.

Until we teach our children the sacrifices made to keep this country free, they will never get it.

Have your kids and grandchildren read "The Fighting Hawks at D-Day" available on Amazon.com. It´s written so they will understand why they are free and the sacrifices made to keep them that way.

As a member of the newest American minority, I can testify to the decades-long erosion of the bonds that once fostered and protected our traditional understandings of both virtue and responsibility. Churches bowed to secularism; local business associations were replaced by professional community organizers; teachers, once professionals, unionized and became tradesmen. And, along the way, we´ve been confronted with the reality and consequences of the pill; new and improved STDs; less emphasis on the three R´s and more on protecting our children´s feelings; popular music that is not only duller, but more aggressive and vile; a media that claims to have moved from being a trade to being a profession; and a growing number of families in which no one has had gainful employment for several generations.

What can I do about all of this? Well, I´m not sure because, not only is the whole new progressive world dead set against me, so, too, are the numbers for my breed. whose demographic replacement value has been well under 2.1 for quite a while, now. So, my current less-than-brave inclination is to sit back in a comfy lounger, light up another cancer stick, keep the ice covered with a nice single-malt and tune into MSNBC so I can watch the on-going celebration of my (and my country´s) imminent demise. Cheers.

Since the election, I sadly feel like a lot of you. I don´t care if our country goes off the fiscal cliff. The people who voted for Obama are either too stupid or just don´t pay attention.

I´m done caring.

Some around here need to remember that "life goes on....long after the thrill of living is gone." Don´t ever give up. That´s what O´fool wants us to do; give up and die. There are many opportunities in business with today´s technologies and today´s foolish youth unwilling and therefore unable to produce. Continue to fight the statists with your wallet, brain, and feet. Spend wisely and with fellow conservatives. Use your brain and start your own business. Use your feet if you have to, pick up and move to more business friendly climes. And don´t tell me how hard it is to start a business - I started mine up last August after an extended period of time unemployed and doing part time manual labor...and I´m in my 50s. If you are on this site you know how to use a computer. Google computer related stuff, study it, and figure out how to earn a living from home. Do not count on savings and investments. All of us need to be able to produce to survive. Besides, there is almost no better way to anger Obama than to be a success in spite of his efforts to keep us down. Sorry about the rant, but perfectly capable people giving up burns me up.

Blame Granpa at your peril!

The older I got, the smarter my dad and Grandpa became. These young skulls who know everything are going to have a time of it after I´m gone off this mortal coil.

The Great Depression provided a great deal of moral courage which these young ones have not lived through.... The very notion that someone should work to provide for those who won´t work is foreign to Granpa.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga
American Thinker, by Mathew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/18/2014 9:08:36 AM     Post Reply
As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines.

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
