I’m away for a few days

Wishing you a great week…I’ll have no computer, so I won’t be here at all.

I am not sure when I will be back but want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter celebration if I’m not back by Saturday, in time to do a Sunday Faith Blog.

God bless you all!

P.S.;  heard a story last night which really kind of stunned me;  A friend was getting her hair cut when a really, really liberal hair cutter came up to her (as he had everybody in the shop) and said “I hope you’re going to vote for Trump.  The Reps and the Dems have ruined this gov’t and he might be the one last hope.”   A real LIB and he’s for Trump.   I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

  1. And the people complaining about establishment republicans going to Washington and not acting conservative are excited about sending a proven liberal to Washington who has NEVER acted conservative and appeals to libs? ‪#‎NotTrump‬.

  2. Have a safe enjoyable trip. Still praying for your mom.

    This is my take: some people define themselves as liberal because it makes them feel better or they are just more socially liberal. I had an art teacher in LA tell me he was liberal but he didn’t like redistribution of wealth. A lot of Americans are centrist, still want to get rich without getting taxed too much but are socially liberal. And they dislike the abuse of our government. This reassures me in a way.

    As a teenager, I called myself a Republican although I had many very liberal ideas. When my wife started producing babies with alarming frequency, I found many of those liberal ideas evaporating like a morning mist over a midwestern gravel pit soon after sunrise in August . . . the ol’ “if you’re under 30 and aren’t a bit liberal, you have no heart, and if you’re over 40 and haven’t become conservative, you have no brain” syndrome at work.

    Today I consider many liberal programs nothing short of economic seppuku and the RINO solutions to be mostly hot air, or as P.J. O’Rourke has said, “The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it.”

    Reassessing my attitude about which party is better, I became convinced that the most reasonable answer is “None of the above.” Hence, I am a libertarian, or one who believes the job of central government is to conduct business with and protect us from other nations but otherwise to stay out of the way of our doing whatever we like so long as it doesn’t interfere with the rights of others to do whatever they like.

    In fact,, I voted for Kennedy because I considered Nixon a bit too sleazy, and I voted for George Wallace NOT because I believed in segregation but as a rejection of both Nixon and Humphrey, one being a jackass and the other being a flibbertigibbet, and possibly interchangeable.

    These days I still tend to vote AGAINST a particular individual, such as a career felon, and not necessary FOR another, such as a ricochet blowhard. In my opinion, the best man for the job is rarely elected to high office because he has better sense than to run for it in the first place, and those who DO run for it do so only for vanity, wealth, and the masochistic delight of living in a fishbowl filled with the elixir of power.

    Z,
    “I’ll have no computer”
    Well, sometimes that can be a healthy break. Here’s wishing you a positive experience during this time.

    I agree with most of what you said, Bocopro, but we probably will never have a Libertarian government because they couldn’t be self-serving and we can’t have that, can we? But given what we have today, Trump, IMO, is still our best and last hope for true change…..for the better, that is, not like what was promised under O. I mean, one must ask why he would be running if not to help our country. Its not for financial gain, like most of the others, and the fact he is self-funding and despises the Lobbyists even though he admittedly had been one, is something no one else can say because they depend on them, also. Bernie may be the exception, but being a Socialist ruins his chances and doesn’t qualify.

  8. FB says:

    Bocopro, I am reading The Law by Bastiat and it is life changing. As long as politics and legislation is about transferring money from some people to other people government will always fail us because it denies the foundation on which it was built: protecting our individual rights.

  9. Kid says:

    Have a great time Z.

    I think the words Conservative and Liberal have gotten distorted to the point that no two people actually agree on the meaning.

    To me being Conservative means that I don’t care what people do as long as they don’t put it in my face, or make me pay for it. Marry a goat, I don’t care. Reading the Declaration of Independence and Constitution I don’t find anything in there that aims at restricting people’s activities. All drugs were legal up until the early 1900’s in fact. We not only survived it but excelled as a country.
    Many people who call themselves liberal are actually Consrvatives.

    Today I think being Liberal means that you want other people to take care of you/pay your way and also includes a measure of mental retardation. Which is why I use Libtard – A clinical term, not an insult.

    As far as politics and government, it is time for a fresh start. It can’t be fixed. Problem is the voters can’t be fixed either with half of them either voting for socialism or the hildebeast

  10. bocopro says:

    FB — forget who said it (might have been Ron Paul) . . . that US foreign aid is the process of taking money from poor people in America and giving it to rich people in poor countries.

    Also (can’t remember who said this’n either), the government can’t give anything to you that it hasn’t taken away from someone else.

    I also like the one about every spring, prior to April 15, we have to pay people who got good grades in accounting to keep us from having to pay too much to the federal government.

  11. FB says:

    bocopro, very well said, especially the foreign aid. When you think of the waste of money with all that transfer. People don’t realize the fact it is counter productive and that all that money would be better spent by people had they spent or saved it themselves.

    The first step towards a reset of our government is get rid of its ties to global finance and eliminate the federal reserve since it’s a cartel in my books. There’s no need for central interest rates. None at all.

    Have a lovely vacation Z. I pray that you’ll stay safe and have an enjoyable time. God bless.

    Yep what they said. Meanwhile, the gypsies are in Z’s palace!

    Here’s sump’n for y’all t’ read while the host is AWOL (sorry the various font and editing highlights don’t come across with the C & P):

    Coming soon to a theater near you –

    SCARYFACE! La Madrina

    The tragic story of a gender-confused child with an atrophied Skene gland. Born of boring parents whose idea of a good life was running a legitimate business, paying bills on time, and playing by the rules, she became convinced after watching The Manchurian Candidate while smoking hash that the key to success in life is accumulation of awesome power through extortion, intrigue, bribery, and deception.

    Her adolescence was focused on identifying and cultivating a charismatic bumpkin whom she could propel into national prominence so that she could be the power behind the capo di tutti capi.

    Eventually selecting B.J. Klanton, often called “Slither” (played by Michael Moore) Hellary, known by many as “Scaryface” and played by Janeane Garofalo, sets to work building a crime organization patterned after that of Lucky Luciano’s Cosa Nostra.

    Through intimidation, corruption, and assassination she installs “Slither” as primary godfather in the Arklatex region. Since their partnership was exclusively business related and she derived no pleasure from sex with males, he finds release through an ever-growing harem of loose but willing groupies. Early in the relationship she does, however, produce a child with him in vitro for the sake of appearances.

    When things get chancey back where they started, Slither and Scaryface transplant their operation to the East Coast through a series of deals and tricks. Slither becomes the “Boss” of the entire syndicate, but she still calls the shots on important issues, such as which crew to hire to push the button on which rival or potential enemy as well as when and how.

    As tertiary syphilis begins to interfere with Slither’s ability to command respect from the street bosses, Scaryface replaces him with a black professor who has a mysterious past and even more mysterious financial backing. Played by Danny Glover, Brock Bowdown is a smooth and glib player who projects an inspiring front but who has no understanding of how to use power or make value judgments. A true puppet, Brock has trouble opening a bottle of aspirin and needs help from his wife, played by Whoopie Goldberg, dressing himself and properly knotting his tie.

    Through a series of strong-arm tactics by her enforcer (Sean Penn), her consigliere (Roseanne), and her publicists (the mainstream media), Hellary elevates herself to the position she has dreamt about her entire life: Godmother.

    But as Fate would have it, on the day before the ceremony installing her as Madrina Suprema, an ISIS lunatic manages to kidnap her while her bodyguards are playing bocce ball and takes her to a studio in Juarez where he slices off her head with a scimitar so that he and his friends can play soccer with it on live international TV.

    Based on a true story, Scaryface is directed by the avant-garde maker of horror films, Lars von Trier, whom all unite in proclaiming not-quite-sane, and produced by the completely paranoid Oliver Stone, who is universally known to be severely brain damaged.

    Z: Take some time off and comtemplate exactly nothing. It’s a healthy thing to do in an election year, especially for dedicated bloggers like you. I would be surprised if you can go a week without the computer. You are like the rest of us in that you are addicted the the machines.

    Have a happy!

    bob

  16. HELLLOOOO!!!! Anybody home???

  17. Bob says:

    Ed, you don’t have to yell.

  18. Lisa says:

  19. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro “When my wife started producing babies with alarming frequency” I love that line! 🙂
    And your political metamorphosis!

    FB…I was very cheered too and think we should be.

    Lisa, that is only reassuring because he’s not a really loony lib….I like that she loves this country enough to want better borders, more jobs, etc. Good news, thanks!

    Bob, I hate to say I AM ADDICTED…you can’t imagine how I felt after staying four nights at Mom’s helping her out to come home early this morning TO NO COMPUTER CONNECTION! And my computer guru was away until tonight at 8 pm!!! FInally, all is well with the world…I AM CONNECTED..HORRAH!!

    JMB…it was a healthy break, you are right

    Ed, is “anybody home?” to me? I’m HOME! But I MAY go back tomorrow.. (hopefully not, I have a lot to do for Bible Study music Thursday)

    Mom’s doing better..thanks….and thanks for your prayers. She’s a spunky woman… nothing gets her too down!

    Sparky…was just taking care of my mother who’d fallen…but other than “get the newspaper” “get the mail” “let’s have lunch” “put down the patio awning” “can I have some tea” etc etc., it was pretty restful!! She lives in a very, very quiet environ..VERY unlike Wilshire Blv.d/Bundy Drive !!!

    Jerry :GYPSIES???

    Kid, Sen Le Boutillier was on FOX today and laughing at the media covering for Obama’s trip to Cuba, making Libs elated when, really, Cuba is SO oppressive to gays and other so-called liberal causes..typical, right?

    Mal, Mom’s doing well!

    thanks, ALL.

    I hope you had a HAPPY EASTER!!! This was my first alone Easter….I didn’t feel like driving the 35 LA Traffic miles back to Mom’s for dinner my sis helped her with tonight….they all had a nice time. I was invited by two friends at church but knew I needed to be ALONE for at least one day……….I fried bacon and then fried eggs IN the bacon fat…mmmm! But some Easter dinner 😦

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Just have to add that I just saw the Obamas went to church this morning…AGAIN to a “traditionally historic Black church”…
    Do you know they never go to a White church unless it’s a funeral or something? I find that odd. And typical
