Big government and Henry FORD?

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian.”  Henry Ford

I think this is a sublime point, and well put…….what about you?

General Motors

General Motors is closing factories in America, after receiving subsidies.  The foreign ones are going strong, but the ones here apparently manufacture cars that aren’t selling.

Do you think Trump’s been duped, as Michael Moore stupidly suggests?   Do you think we should have subsidized them?  I mean, we gave them money to hire Americans, they took our money and are laying off Americans now.

“Not happy about it. Their car is not selling well, so they’ll put something else. I have no doubt that in a not-too-distant future, they’ll put something else. They better put something else in,” Trump said.

What do you know and what do you think about it?  One of the best things about Trump the last many months is the economy, busy factories, people working, and……..um….notsomuch?

Jerks Abound….and Geraldo’s King of the Jerks

I’m not crazy about calling anybody a JERK but if anybody is a jerk it’s Geraldo Rivera.

He’s now saying   “I refuse to deal with this as a media issue, because it’s far too important, with all due respect, Jesse (Waters). This is something that goes to the very quick. This goes to my soul. Fulfilling my role as the designated pinata on Fox News, I am ashamed. This tear gas choked me. We treat these people, these economic refugees as if they’re zombies from The Walking Dead. I think—we arrested 42 people, eight of them were women. With children. We have to deal with this problem humanely and with compassion. These are not “invaders!” Stop using these military analogies. This is absolutely painful to watch. This is—we are a nation of immigrants. These are desperate people, they walked 2000 miles (Z: no they did not)—why? Because they want to rape your daughter or steal your lunch? No! Because they want a job. They want to fill the millions of unfilled jobs we have in the agricultural sector. They want to wash dishes in restaurants, they want to deliver the pizzas. For goodness´ sake, we suspend our humanity when it comes to this issue and I fear that it is because they look different than we do.

The article which printed that ridiculous bunch of junk had to add that “This extremely off-brand appeal to common decency on Fox News came just as the network faces accusations of doing extremely on-brand collaborations with the Trump administration.”

JERK JERK JERK.

NOW, you dear NON JERKS AT GEEEEZ……..share your thoughts!

THE BORDER: Tear Gas?…………

…………or NO Tear Gas?

If not tear gas, what?

Obama used pepper spray, which many say is worse than tear gas…….not a peep from the media.   Trump’s now every bad name in the book.  SO typical.

Sunday Faith Blog

REMAIN GRATEFUL…….it’s the greatest antidote, even (or especially) in times of our own difficult challenges.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”  1 Peter 5:10

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

Pray, be grateful, be faithful!

Blessings to you all…have a great Sunday,

COLLUSION and TWITTER

THIS seems dangerous to me, really dangerous….what do you think?  Mueller usually doesn’t even issue any news from his investigation (or whatever we want to call it)…what’s this about?  A threat?  I mean, we DO know who the “Tweeter in Chief” is, right?

And now a judge says COLLUSION IS A CRIME…………

I don’t think there’s a chance in the world Trump is going to be completely exonerated on the Mueller investigation, mostly because, as many have said, “This is about people looking for something on Trump, not a situation where there’s a crime and they’re trying to find out who did it.”

DO YOU AGREE?

Thomas Farr….guilty for WHAT? Being WHITE?

This is never going to end.  A seeemingly good man who was a lawyer for Jesse Helms at one time is now accused of being a racist, based largely on Helms having sent postcards to Black voters dissuading them from voting!  Almost all the articles on Thomas Farr mention this and other racist things he just had to have done if he worked for the law firm which represented Helms, right?  WRONG.

When researching THOMAS FARR, I found this  part of Wiki’s article on him utterly fascinating…”Thomas Alvin Farr (born October 24, 1954)[1] is currently a shareholder in the Raleigh office of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C., and is a nominee to be a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.”  A SHAREHOLDER?  He’s a practicing attorney or maybe partner in a law firm!! I’ve always thought of SHAREHOLDERS as not being involved in a firm of any kind other than to HOLD SHARES in that business, right?   So is this in Wikipedia just to show readers HE IS RICH?!     Can’t have THAT!! 🙂

This attorney Farr, Thomas Alvin Farr was first picked for a federal judgeship in North Carolina in 2006 and now Trump  has nominated him again.  He is accused of having been a lawyer for Jesse Helms, and he was, because the firm which hired him was already working for Helms.  The implications are he supported racism.    In nearly all the articles I read while researching about this, it was mentioned that Helms, and therefore Farr, was a horrid racist who you might remember was accused of sending 125,000 post cards which apparently turned Blacks from voting.  Almost all the articles I saw said rather proudly and “Gotcha!-esque” that the case had settled, but it fascinated me that nobody addressed at their articles’ ends “How was it settled?” so I looked.

Here ’tis:  “The Justice Department said it saw no basis for criminal charges against any of the defendants.”    Well, I’ll be darned!   All articles alluded to Farr’s guilt by association with Helms but the Justice Department said it was NOT CRIMINAL and STILL Farr’s being accused of this, 10 years after Jesse Helms has been dead!  NO GUILT!    And this is a big reason Mr. Thomas Farr may not be appointed to the Eastern District Court of North Carolina.

By the way, Schumer, Dubin, Booker and others have weighed in basically saying he’s too white and wouldn’t “well represent SO many Black Americans in that District.”

FAIR??
