Biden in Scranton cracked me UP!….

…well, he ‘cracked me up’ but, on the other hand, that bumbling idiot is our president…YIKES!

Yes, I had THE FIVE yesterday,  as I usually do in the afternoon, and they had to cut to Biden’s ‘speech’.…I sat there, dumbfounded, wondering “WHAT is he trying to say?  Who cares about his grandfather and mother and where he lived and what they did and wisdom from his MOTHER..?  He just rambled and rambled off teleprompter!  It was unreal!

When they cut back to DANA PERINO on THE FIVE, I almost choked laughing when she opened with “Well….we just had a walk down Memory Lane!”  SO FUNNY.  And SO TRUE.  And WHO CARED?        It was unbelievable.   But at least, when he’s not reading the teleprompter, he’s not squinting so hard I can barely look at the man.

ONE THING BIDEN SAYS FREQUENTLY, and he mentioned it against yesterday, is “The rich didn’t build this country…the union workers did!”

OBAMA is famous for having said YOU didn’t build that!…..remember?

WHEN BIDEN SAYS THIS I start wondering if he REALLY believes union members and others…plumbers, carpenters, electricians, etc etc etc BUILT AMERICA without any help.

“The rich didn’t build this country” he insists.   SO here’s my thought about Biden and Obama’s ridiculous lines:   IF A SUCCESSFUL ARCHITECT HADN’T DRAWN THE PLANS FOR THAT BUILDING, COULD THE ELECTRICIAN AND PLUMBER AND DRY WALL GUY JUST GONE IN AND DONE IT ON THEIR OWN?   WHO’D HAVE PLANNED IT?

COULD A BUILDING GO UP WITHOUT THE FUNDING FOR PLUMBING, ELECTRICAL NECESSITIES, DRY WALL, FLOORING, HVAC.,..etc etc etc?

OF COURSE NOT.……. WHAT is it about the LEFT that can’t acknowledge THE RICH DID BUILD THIS COUNTRY…WITHOUT THEM, THE WORKERS COULD HAVE DONE ZIP…THE RICH FINANCED THE COUNTRY, PLANNED THE COUNTRY, RAN THE COUNTRY!   DID AFRICANS COME HERE AND GET MADE CEO’S OR PRESIDENTS OF BANKS AS SOON AS THEY LOOSED THE SHACKLES BLACK MEN HAD PUT THEM IN FOR THE JOURNEY HERE?  NO, BECAUSE THEY HAD NO EDUCATION AT THAT TIME, THEY COULDN’T EVEN READ!    COULD UNION MEMBERS SUPPORT THEIR FAMILIES IF THE RICH CORPORATIONS DON’T HIRE THEM?  OF COURSE NOT! 

Just a thought……………AM I WRONG?!  I don’t think so!!

OF COURSE RICH WHITE AMERICA BUILT THIS COUNTRY…..!!!

AND THANK GOD.

man.

Doesn’t Joe get ANYTHING??

When I made the mistake of watching some of Joe Biden’s at some Police Memorial Service on the Capitol Steps Saturday morning, he said this:

“The American people don’t understand how difficult it is to be a policeman.” (or something close to that)

I’m sitting there stunned….Doesn’t he GET that it’s HIS PEOPLE, HIS PARTY which is making it so difficult on law enforcement today?

Low Bails aren’t OUR idea.

Letting people out of jail quickly is not OUR idea.

Defunding the police is certainly not OUR idea.

Some might say most Democrats don’t feel that way, either….maybe Joe doesn’t back those things….but WHAT IS HE DOING AGAINST THEM?  The only thing he mentioned that he thought was a good step toward peace was “taking away the guns of people.”   WHAT?

YES, Mr. BIDEN, it IS more difficult because Democrat politicians aren’t supporting law enforcement!

And, by the way, raise those flags up from being half mast as you ordered;  STOP with the symbols you think are important.   DO SOMETHING.  STOP COMPLIMENTING THE COPS and DO SOMETHING TO HELP THEM!

GEEEEEEZ.

Colin Powell

Well, General Colin Powell passed away this morning, as you all know by now, I’m sure.  Rest in Peace, General.

I am hearing SO much about “First Black….this, First Black that…..” and  it bothers me.  He is a MAN and was apparently very good at all he did.  Except backing Obama, which changed my mind on him forever when he said he thought Obama was “transformative”…that’s for sure.  I wonder if he ever regretted that public declaration of his vote.

Which of these points of the Powell Doctrine would you NOT agree with?

The Powell Doctrine states that a list of questions all have to be answered affirmatively before military action is taken by the United States:

  1. Is a vital national security interest threatened?

  2. Do we have a clear attainable objective?

  3. Have the risks and costs been fully and frankly analyzed?

  4. Have all other non-violent policy means been fully exhausted?

  5. Is there a plausible exit strategy to avoid endless entanglement?

  6. Have the consequences of our action been fully considered?

  7. Is the action supported by the American people?

  8. Do we have genuine broad international support?[2]

ALSO:  I’m impressed by Jeh Johnson, who said this morning how much he admired General Powell and how he was more than THE FIRST BLACK anything...he was a man who did the best he can, much of which was excellent, and he HAPPENED to be a Black man.  I felt the same way after hearing all the ‘FIRST BLACK MAN” stuff………who cares? HE WAS A MAN.

Kamala has lunch with Z

So, friends and I (friends in foreground, of course!) had a 1:00 lunch at El Chollo yesterday.   Suddenly, a couple comes and sits behind my friends, directly in my line of view..(see them against the wall?) ..this couple keeps looking over at ME, so I ask my friend “Am I talking too loud or something?  That couple keeps looking over at me!”  “No, not at all, “ she says.

Then it dawns on me….why, that’s Kamala Harris and her husband….I’m sure of it.  I google the husband’s picture and see I’m 100% right.   She is prettier in person, and  more petite.   Then we realize the two guys lunching to my left, with white ear pieces, are her Secret Service, along with people throughout the restaurant.  When they left, our two guys left and about 8 others left, it was like a parade.   When she hit the outdoor patio, there was a huge applause and cheering. FOR HER?   Welcome to liberal Santa Monica.   (the paintings on the wall are by my dear friend Sally, by the way!!)  (I remembered that Kamala has a house in Brentwood, probably 10 minutes from me and this restaurant.)

My friends I lunched with are strong Conservatives and I told them I was surprised to be a little excited to see this woman I find so awful.  Joe said “Ya, but you’re a true patriot, and she IS the Vice President of the United States, whether we like it or not…”   I guess I am!  I was kind of glad I’m not too cool to still get a kick out of this even if it IS her 🙂

SUNDAY FAITH BLOG

Baysider and I’ve been studying 1 John at Bible Study……….we were directed to James during last week’s study, about how important it was to put actions to loving words….

I heard this Benjamin Franklin quote on TV yesterday and felt it relevant:

“Well done is better than well said.”

I thought it was a good encouragement for all of us to DO THINGS FOR OTHERS….people we know, people we don’t know but whose stories have touched us, family, neighbors, etc.  This post today is just a little prompting to DO GOOD THINGS…HELP OTHERS…….

It’s a great thing to do, anyway, but it sure does make for an excellent illustration of our FAITH:

 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.   1 John 3

Have a blessed Sunday……Give someone a hand!  or a ham!  or a lift!  Or a mowed lawn!!  or something!   🙂  z

Armenian American Lib Who TELLS TRUTH!!!!

Former Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian has a message for America about the state of higher education: “There is no hope. We need to build parallel institutions.”

Boghossian called out his former employer in a stunning resignation letter which detailed a years-long string of abuses he suffered in retaliation for supporting the free exchange of ideas. He faced harassment and false accusations of misconduct, along with a whisper campaign by fellow faculty members who told students not to take his classes.

His decision to resign came after a discussion with a university administrator in which the administrator spoke proudly of the university’s poor free speech ranking.

Boghossian says of the restrictions on speech, “This was not a bug of the ideology, this was a feature of it. This was a good thing. And that was really the last straw…at that moment, I made up my mind.”

As a philosophy professor, Boghossian had his students entertain competing ideas, including those that disagree with his own views.

Though he is an atheist, he invited the president of Ratio Christi, a large Christian organization, to his class to speak to students.

He says this should be a model for all college classes.

“Students need to be taught the best arguments from people who believe them. And then they should be taught the best arguments on the other side from people who believe them. That’s why you’re in college,” he states.

Boghossian says that colleges continue to fall far short of delivering a meaningful education because, in his view, “Professors look at the university system as an indoctrination mill.”

Teacher colleges across the country, he argues, are preparing future teachers to practice woke ideology in the classroom. Because teacher training programs are steeped in wokeness, Boghossian says, they are creating indoctrinated teachers who, in turn, go on to indoctrinate young students.

“If you had a wand, and you waved that wand, and you got rid of all wokeness from the K-12 system, it would just repopulate,” Boghossian says. “The most important thing, if you really want to…extirpate this from all of our systems, the most important thing is to hit colleges of education.”

The former professor says students should be open with their parents about what colleges are teaching. He encourages them to say, “This is what my education has become. This is what they are teaching me.”

Boghossian also advises students to think carefully about how their college education aligns with their future goals.  *END OF ARTICLE

I’m BAAAAACK!!…with observations:

Missed you all!!  Glad to be back on line…   A few of things got me thinking yesterday:

Obama is going out to campaign for Democrats like McAuliffe…..but, suddenly, the Conservative news was laughing at how the Left has to hide Biden and even McAuliffe suggested Biden’s low popularity isn’t much help….so BIDEN IS COMING ALONG 🙂

ALSO:  They’re saying Americans aren’t going to work even though those freebie checks they were getting STOPPED?!!   WHY IS THAT?   WHO is supporting them?

OK..one more:  About a week ago, I started wondering why the National Guard hasn’t been called in to help at the L.A. ports where ships are lined up and nobody’s there to unload and drive goods away.  A relative has a big trucking company and he said drivers have either quit or they’ve moved out of state.  And, at $5.00 a gallon, how’s a trucker survive?   Yesterday, Biden listed CLIMATE CHANGE as one reason for the SUPPLY CHAIN problems!!!!!  Oh, and he believes if we’d just pass his “Infrastructure Bill,” all would improve!   WHAT?

OK…one last point!   Biden insists he had a Supply Chain Task Force set in JUNE working on the problem.   WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN?  Why did the back ups in ships, etc., HAPPEN if they were ALL SET?

THOUGHTS ON ANY OR ALL OF THOSE?

Have a great Thursday!

DeBLAH-sio……….?? WHAT?

THIS is the MOST KHUTZPA I HAVE SEEN IN A WHILE.

Mayor DeBlasio is known to have practically destroyed NYC even before COVID did its work in it……..and now he’s considering running for GOVERNOR?

That headline blows my mind!

“I’ve got a lot to offer,” he said. “I want to do more in public service. How that’s going to play out, there’s time to figure out. But that’s my goal.”

Just HOW egomaniacal can even a politician BE?

“They despise me…I think I’ll run for higher office”  ???

CAN YOU THINK OF OTHER POLITICIANS QUITE THIS CRAZY, DESTRUCTIVE AND FULL OF THEMSELVES?
