Lets Talk

2020 November 25
by drdog09

Rationally, calmly, with a clear heart and pencil in hand.

It is not going to change

We won, but lost a national election because of cheating. What are you going to do about it? I’ll tell you what you are going to do about it – NOTHING. Its not that you don’t care. But change does not occur until you and fellow citizens have a lever to make it happen. But that time is not now. It maybe never, we will see. But accept that fact.

Proud Boys, God Bless them. They act how I feel in many ways. But that is not going to change things either. Well except to get some people killed. But that is not going to change the big picture.

Cities like Detroit, Chicago, New York, Portland, Los Angeles do you expect them to change? Realize that some of these environs have been run by Boss Tweeds for from 50 to 100 years. Same Democratic mayors reaching back to the 1800’s in some cases. Their brand of politics has and will outlast your entire lifespan. What are you going to do, nuke the place? To what end? Mayor Tweed will just tap HUD for federal dollars to do their brand of urban renewal. Those are not the only cities like this. There are many more both large and small. I can point to a few here in Texas with a total population of the county is under 60000 but I would not live there for the old boy network running the place.

Do you think you are going to take down the elites compliments of Donald Trump? Probably not, the rot is too deep and too wide for any one man to clear it out. To his credit Trump did more in that regard that any POTUS in my lifetime but he is only one man. One man can only do so much in a four year span. Its the way the system swings.

If things do change it will be for the worst I am afraid to say. Over my career I have been to Portland several times. The first being in the early 80’s. Clean, lots to do, a good place to live. Now look at it, squalor everywhere downtown, riots in the streets, cops bailing out in massive numbers. Given the path it is on, it will be a shell of itself within a decade or less.

But right now is the time to take out the pencil. Scratch a T bar on the pad. On the left side header ‘where you are now’. On the right side header, ‘where you want to be’. On the left side below the bar add the following:

  • Where is the closest major city to where you live. Ex: I am in Tarrant closest large city is Fort Worth.
  • Research what the politics are for that city. Mostly Democrat vs Republican leadership?
  • Research what the people in that city vote for. Which party? For or against levies and taxes? For or against ‘more govt.’?
  • Look at your current tax bill. Break it down by Federal, State, City, County, School Board.
  • What is your assessment of the quality of life in your area over the last 5 years?
  • What keeps you where you are? Job? Family? History? Fun?
  • Misc. What else ticks your fancy?
  • How much does the family earn?
  • How much of your net worth is portable. How much it tied up in your residence?

But you can change

So things will only get worse? Surely? Do you need to accept it? Yes, at least where you are. The situation can’t but YOUR situation can. The quickest way is change your locale. But I love it here you say. Really? Go back and look at what you wrote. Is what you scribbled what you want to face the rest of your life? If it is grab a beer and enjoy it. But I would hazard for most people where they are now is not where they want to be.

Time for that pencil again. On the right side add the following:

  • How do you prefer to live?
  • What is the closest urban city?
  • Research what the politics are for that city. Mostly Democrat vs Republican leadership?
  • Research what the people in that city vote for. Which party? For or against levies and taxes? For or against ‘more govt.’?
  • Look at the tax bill for a mythical residence in the area. Break it down by Federal, State, City, County, School Board.
  • Less taxes.
  • Job prospects for the move.
  • Are those existing residents of a like mind?

You may have to do this several times. The US is a huge place and there are many opportunities. Every opportunity has different facets to consider. Nor do you have to move half way across the country to get where you want to be. Heck I lived in Arlington Texas several years and moved to an unincorporated area just 12 miles away and it is like a different State.

So now it is time to make a decision, some economic some lifestyle. And keep this in the back of your mind – It is not how much you earn it is how much you keep that matters. In the most drastic cases it is quite possible to take a 1/3rd to 1/2 whack in your gross income and still net more bottom line than you are earning now where you live.

That chance to fix your life is at its maximum RIGHT NOW. CoVid has created an opportunity that may not come again in our lifetime. Businesses due to the CoVid scare are moving head long into remote work as a survival technique. These business are taking advantage of the opportunity principally by hiring individuals based on skills and not on location. Logic being they can acquire a better talent pool that way. Well flip that on its head, it means that the current talent pool, YOU, can also maximize your situation.

Many Chicago residents are moving to Kentucky. They calculate the total economic package and have found a better life. People are leaving California in droves. This is happening in all the major trash cities I listed previously. Here is a good test. A UHaul Texas to LA is $1500 one way. LA to Texas $4600. That is the level of demand out of the trash urban cores. And rural land prices? Up.

But you are a coward for moving! Really? Were people jumping Westward over or under the Berlin wall cowards considering they were highly likely to be shot if discovered? Were Cubans cowards to float on a pair of oil drums to get to Florida some of whom were never seen again? Wars have been won and lost based on whether the army moved or not. What you are doing is an offensive retreat from insanity. Moving may in fact be the most effective means of toppling the status quo.

So which to you think is the most effective means of facilitating change? The gun or the tax bill? In our current environment the tax bill. Or should I say the lack of it. If you move, select wisely, you relieve yourself of the largest impediment to your life. You also deny the monster of the largess you have been providing all these years. If I yell and scream in a school board meeting think they will change? Probably not because they know they are going to get their millage tax out of you come hell or high water. Tell the principal that you are taking the child out of the system and they will jump thru hoops to change your mind. (personal experience. My daughter was worth $2200 to them in fed grants.) The most recent example was Governor Cuomo pleading for people to come back to New York. Trust me, your life is worth more than a damn steak, medium rare.

But, but, but the liberals will come in droves. Eh, check that. First off where do you think Liberals breed? It is not transmitted genetically, its in the mind. You can bet your last dollar that Dallas, Houston and Austin school systems breed as many liberals as Portland or Seattle do. Its the school systems. Accept that you can’t change it. But that is not to deny that imports maybe an issue. But on balance it is probably a wash. We are better off having a Joe Rogan, who is unquestionably a liberal move to Texas than Tucker Carlson. Rogan is a sign post that the progressives have gone off the rails far beyond the classic liberal and his audience reach is 5x larger than Carlsons that plays to a crowd already convinced. The other thing to consider, is those that have been leaving places like California have been the productive members of society. The dregs are moving TO California for the bennies. The good weather is just a cherry on top.

Your choice

So the analysis says moving is the thing to do. But the one thing that has not been discussed is why? Moving is a PITA, even if your hire it out with a mover. Most people move for a simple reason – economics. Better job, better opportunity, etc. Nothing wrong with that. But it costs you the one thing most people do not consider like a fish swimming. Their freedom to do as they please. We get so wrapped up in the economics of our lives that we don’t consider what we pay in restrictions. The Elites like that, treating you and I like tax donkeys on a treadmill.

The watchword from the elites is ‘The Great Reset’. Futurists consider this time the Fourth Turning in America. So be it. The grand plan is to change everything. But such great plans require taxes. Taxes that can be denied if you are not within reach. The turmoil we are currently experiencing is an opportunity. Use it.

For myself I am running TO SOMETHING, which does not include the Elites grand schemes.

Fighting the Good War; Fighting to Win

2020 November 24
by bc3b

And, let’s face it, we are in a war for the future of our country.

The battle plan has already been written by the left. All we patriots need do is follow it.

While there won’t be another election for two years, there are plenty of things we can do between now and then.

Resist – the left’s favorite term for the past four years

We know from his campaign promises, Joe Biden is going to do everything in his power to appease the left wing of the Democratic Party – abortions, amnesty, refugees, gun control, more government regulations, etc. We must oppose him at every turn. M0ck him just like the left mocked Trump. Don’t waste time with Facebook debates with leftists whose beliefs you have virtually no change of changing. Concentrate on the average American, convincing them that Joe Biden and the Democrats are intent on making this a country they won’t want to live in or leave for their children and grandchildren.

Talk about election fraud and take every opportunity to point out Biden’s mistakes. You know there will be a ton of them.

Boycott Companies that Are Actively Working with the Left

The Faux News boycott shows how effective a boycott can be when you bet everyone behind it. Faux prime time shows have lost at least 1/3 of their audience since election night

Cable News Ratings

Friday, August 14 Friday, November 21
1. Tucker Carlson 1. Anderson Cooper
2. The Five 2. Cuomo Prime Time
3. Hannity 3. Erin Burnett
4. Rachel Maddow 4. Rachel Maddow
5. Laura Ingraham 5. CNN Newsroom
6. Special Report-Baier 6. CNN Tonight
7. CNN Newsroom 7. Lead with Jake Tapper
8. Anderson Cooper 8. Tucker Carlson
9. CNN Newsroom 9. Situation Room
10. Situation Room 10. Hannity
11. Reidout 11. Laura Ingraham
12. Erin Burnett 12. The Five

 

It’s not that CNN and MSNBC gained a ton of viewers. Erin Burnett didn’t drop 30 pounds in three months. Faux totally screwed itself.

Chris Wallace’s handling of the first debate, election night coverage and many other examples of Faux’s leftward swing convinced many naive Faux fans to abandon Faux for NewsMax TV and OAN even though both are far more amateurish and less professional than Faux. They will improve dramatically if they can keep their ratings up.

What does this prove? Simply the power patriots have when they put their minds to it. Think of all the companies that support the left – Procter & Gamble, Kellogg’s, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, etc. Obviously, they are not going to lose 1/3 of their business like Faux News, but what if they lost 10% – 20% of their business via conservative boycotts? The stockholders would be all over them.

It’s not that difficult – at Kroger, Meijer, Safeway and Publix Finish sits next to P&G’s Cascade on the shelf, Colgate is next to P&G’s Crest, All is next to Tide, General Mills and other brands sit next to Kellogg’s, dozens of beer brands sit next to Budweiser, RC and Diet Rite and local sodas sit next to Coke and Pepsi.

Don’t Confuse “Conservative” with Patriot

Ben Sasse and Mike Lee would sell out this country just as quickly as Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin to advance their careers and benefit their donors.

Avoid Negativity

It’s easy to become negative, easier for some than others. Try to keep a positive attitude and think of ways that we can stick it to Biden and the Democrats.

That which is rewarded is repeated

2020 November 22
by justrand

There’s an old saying “That which is rewarded is repeated

It now appears that the massive and obvious FRAUD perpetrated by the Dems and the media will be REWARDED: Joe Biden will be installed in the basement of the White House.

It will therefore be REPEATED.

In 1876, Northfield, Minnesota was a growing Southern Minnesota community, full of people who just wanted to live their lives in peace. Many of the men were Veterans of the Civil War, but all the citizens were ready to protect what was theirs.

On September 7, 1876, the most notorious gang of bank and train robbers in America, the James-Younger Gang, rode into Northfield to rob the First National Bank. They had a technique for robbing banks that had been REWARDED time and again: three or more gang members would enter a bank, while six or more kept watch outside, and prepared to cow the citizens of the town into submission should they try to interfere. They were in Northfield to REPEAT their prior successes.

The outlaws ordered the three bank employees to open the safe, but were told that the door was locked and couldn’t be opened. Meanwhile, local citizens on the street began to arm themselves after a merchant discovered the robbery in progress and shouted, “Get your guns, boys — they’re robbing the bank!”

Upon this discovery, two gang members sprang to their saddles and began firing their pistols and yelling for everyone to leave the area or be shot. The citizens were supposed to flee at this point. Instead they FOUGHT BACK.

Seven minutes later two robbers were dead in the street and two more were badly wounded. The remaining six outlaws fled southwest, triggering the largest manhunt in U.S. history.

In 2022 and 2024 the Democrats and their lap dogs, the media, will attempt to REPEAT their fraud…after all, they will have been richly REWARDED. Citizens will be told to NOT “interfere”, and if they attempt to they will be ordered to “leave the area” by the Democrats hired goons. Just like Northfield.

Will we? Or will we choose instead to FIGHT BACK, like Northfield when their livelihood was at stake, and the people of Athens, Tennessee when their VOTES were at stake in 1946.

Makes it obvious why the Democrats are DESPERATE to disarm us…so we CAN’T fight back.

There’s a lot of Smoke

2020 November 21

And, where’s there’s smoke, there’s usually a fire.

Rebel media snoops around Dominion Voting HQ in Toronto…

Dominion Voting shares office with George Soros linked group

There are  so many other things:

  • Reports of massive voter fraud in Detroit, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Atlanta
  • More votes than registered voters in Milwaukee precincts
  • More votes than ballots cast in Detroit precincts
  • Republican observers barred from observing the vote count in Wayne County  (Detroit)
  • Nevada registering more presidential votes than total votes
  • Dominion Voting headquarters sharing a floor with TIDES Canada in a building occupied by progressive companies interested in sustainability
  • Dominion’s $50,000 donation to Hillary in 2016
  • Dominion system switched 3,000 votes from Trump to Biden (6,000 vote change) in rural Michigan county
  • Dominion’s refusal to testify before the Pennsylvania State legislature
  • Dominion top exec who is a big Antifa fan

Then, there are charges of Dominion algorithms that favor Biden.

Circumstantial evidence? Yes, but a ton of it and far more evidence than Russian collusion in 2016. Yet the media is not-so-strangely silent.

The Democrats are emboldened because they realize the media (including the management of FNC) has their backs and will surpress any questions regarding alleged election fraud.

Let’s hope Trump’s legal team can produce a  smoking gun soon.
