May Not Like Us, But They Damned Well Better Respect Us.


January 10, 2020

One of our cats must have walked on my alarm clock. When I rolled over and checked the time it said five-thirty so living under the premise that it is better to wake up and pee rather then pee and wake up “Good morning America!” Only when making coffee to discover it was two-thirty not five-thirty. Oh well, at least you can’t die in your sleep when not sleeping. If global warming is such a bad and terrible thing then why do so many travel the globe to find some? There are a lot of “snowbirds” conspicuously absent from our great northland. When watching the weather on TV pay attention to the record highs and lows for the day since records have been kept. There are a lot of the highs made in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. It means nothing other than our world is constantly changing regardless if man has something or anything to do with it or not. Every day in January and February that is above zero is a gift. That is unless you work in the woods cutting spruce pulp and the warm weather makes getting the limbs off a lot more work. You can please some of the people some of the time.

Speaking of the Donald’s approach to handling our enemies is very different then Obamas. Obama sent them planeloads of money where Trump sends planeloads of rockets and bombs. Countries that burn our flag while shouting “death to America” don’t need to and never will like us, but they damned well better respect us! Countries that amount to no more then a boil on the butt of the world sometimes need to be lanced. Showing anything that even resembles fear to them is taken as weakness and makes us vulnerable. As a friend said once when I said I would like to knock him on his butt. There are two reasons you won’t try. Fear and better judgement. He was correct. It would have been a mistake that would not have ended well for yours truly. These little pissant countries need a certain amount of fear so they will exercise better judgement.

Meanwhile there is a political party in this country that somehow doesn’t understand that “It is okay to be white, abortion is murder, firearms save lives, there are only two genders, America is the greatest nation, Trump is our president, and God is real. There is a rumor that if a president is impeached by the House, but not convicted by the Senate, that person’s first term is nullified and they are eligible to run for office two more times. Some of us find that humorous whether true or not.

The news used to tell you something happened, then you had to decide what you thought about it. Now the news tells you how to think about something and you have to decide if it even happened. There are a lot of people that will only watch or listen to local news for good reasons. Some watch equal portions of so-called fake news and Fox news, try to find some common ground and make up their own minds. There are two sides to every story but very seldom will you get both from one source.

There are some that would trust Peewee Herman sitting behind them at the movies, while on a date with O.J. drinking at Bill Cosby’s bar with Flint Michigan ice cubes while Casey Anthony babysits for them, before they would trust any democrat running for president. Then again some will always hate Trump. So far we are free to think and say what we want in this country, but the radical left is doing their best to change that. In the meantime here are five rules to remember. 1. Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastard’s name. 2. Money can’t buy happiness but its more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes then on a bicycle. 3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you when they are in trouble again. 4. Many people are alive only because it is illegal to shoot them. 5. Alcohol doesn’t solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.

P.S. Six seconds to stop what would have been another mass murder in a church and some still don’t understand the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Sad, very sad.
