MAGA Hats

Once President Trump was sworn in on 20 January 2017 Antifa and other extremist groups went on the rampage. They torched cars, broke windows and caused mayhem and pandemonium wherever they amassed. Then there was the rash of fraudulent hate crimes that were reported to law enforcement. It was always the same story, a group of white males who apparently voted for Trump and ripped the hijabs off of Muslim women and went out of their way to harass and assault women and supposed minorities. The problem with the majority of the supposed “hate crimes” were that they were staged and supported by the main stream media and politicians, they were fake.

For years now false rape allegations, false hate crimes and real outrage toward anyone who wasn’t “With Her”. They keep on calling for Nazis to be punched and now U.S. Representative Maxine Waters finally put out the lynching call. She demanded that anyone serving under President Trump to be lynched, to be harassed and to be assaulted. The trend that I am noticing is they pretend to be oppressed and in danger, when in fact they cause the danger and they cause the mass hysteria.

So now they take pride in forcibly and violently stealing MAGA hats from ordinary citizens. Where is the outrage in the media for this very real assault and very real danger? Where is the outrage from the politicians? Silence, in their mind, it is right to threaten and assault not only a President Trump appointee, but anyone who voted for him or supports him today. They continue to cite the disgusting and abhorrent lynchings that were committed against black people decades and generations ago, the pictures are always an arms-reach away. However; in their mind today, to be an outsider, to support the perceived unpopular president, is rewarded with physical bodily harm.

No one is safe, do they realize their crime, do they realize their apparent hypocrisy? Do they realize that they are the perpetrators and the purveyors of this crime, let alone the purposely misnomer of “hate crime”? They rip the MAGA hat off of an innocent, like how they falsely accused Trump supporters of doing to Muslim women. There are mass lynchings brewing, their target, who knows, not even they know until they are told. These brain-dead hoodlums cannot differentiate between the atrocities of the past and what they are carrying out today.

Trump and Obama, The Same? (Campaign Edition)

Discussing either President Trump or President Obama during their initial campaigns, the same can be said of both, you either love em or you hate em. Both men ran incredibly similar campaigns. Both took a bullhorn and pronounced to the world their base’s frustrations. They did not cultivate anger, they simply emboldened it. The other candidates that ran, attempted to tell us what we should be frustrated about, instead of listening to us, they ignored us. President Obama beat out career politicians, just as President Trump did. The more I look and listen to both on their campaigns, the more they become interchangeable.

If you criticized Obama, you were racist, if you criticize Trump, you hate America, regardless if either were true or false. That’s how simple their platforms were and it worked. It worked so well, that is has become the new model for success in elections. Any politician running for office today knows, the harder they echo the frustrations of their base, the better they will do. Everyone who lost complained that the values of both, were not the values of America. Again, politicians telling us what America’s values ought to be, rather than listen to the voter. Why wouldn’t Obama or Trump win?

The importance of exercising criticism on the one you voted for is paramount. The less we criticize, the easier it is for them to execute their desires instead of doing what they were hired to do. Once President Obama was elected, the majority of the press in our country and around the world fell in love with him and the complete opposite is true of President Trump. That should show you the barometer of our nation and the world. We are either hot or cold, there is no middle ground. They left blames it on Trump and the right blames it on Obama. Sound familiar, it’s always someone else’s fault.

Perhaps I am mistaken, but I truly see the two as almost interchangeable, during their campaigns. Whenever the press becomes emotional about any elected representative, it is that much easier to control the population. It becomes easier to identify and label the “bad guy” and run with it, with no regard for accuracy. Meanwhile the remaining representatives just go along to get along. As long as they can blame the president, there is no need for them to work, since the press does all the leg work involved.

The more we begin to think for ourselves, the less power they will hold over us. If you find yourself mimicking lines from the “news” then you’re only seeing what they want you to see and you’re only hearing what they want you to hear. The same talking points over and over and over again. They become less relevant and more annoying the longer they are regurgitated.

If we are as simple as Trump or Obama, then why do we deserve better?

Old People and New Technology

There are plenty of jokes out there targeting old people and their apparent lack to understand any if all new technology. Smart phones, computers, social media, texting, global positioning systems and so on and so on. The mockery of the elderly strikes me as incredibly disrespectful and horribly ungrateful. The difference between our grandparents and great grandparent’s era is as simple as hard work versus minimal work. The old adage of work smarter not harder has been manipulated to allow the masses to believe that we all deserve our participation trophy. The elderly built their own homes, they fixed their own automobiles and they practically cooked and prepared every single meal from scratch.

Today we push a few buttons and we feel accomplished, we buy organic and we feel right, we lease electric cars and we feel as if we are literally saving our fellow man. The constant championship of today is absolutely pathetic. We count our steps and we count our calories, but only because we do not build our homes, we cannot fix our automobiles with simple hand tools and now cooking from scratch is considered “artisan”.

Our ancestors gave us everything we have today and what do we do but make mockeries of them to garner likes and shares. Maybe if we slowed down and listened to our elders we might learn something. All we need to do is stop talking and pay attention.

“Keep the Change”

Picture this, a group of teenagers are hanging out around a convenience store. They are evaluating the customers walking in and out, their target is downtrodden. Once they spot the person, they casually walk up and attempt to strike up a light yet probing conversation. Once they make their mark, they go for it. They nervously hand over twenty dollars and tell their newly acquired mule to keep the change. They wait outside for what seems like an eternity, once their mule exits the store they desperately try to appear nonchalant and encourage their mule to approach them out of sight of on-lookers. The teenagers get what they want, the cheapest alcohol in the store and their mule makes off with the change. Both parties get what they want, although the price they just paid for the harshest alcohol, was probably two to three times the actual sticker price. But who cares right, they got their alcohol and they couldn’t care less about the money they lost.

This very scenario is playing out in the states that have legalized recreational marijuana. The states that have legalized it, are the highest taxed states in our country. But who cares, now you can get high without the fear of getting locked up or fined. Sure, the legal weed from the weed store might be priced sky high compared to your local drug dealer, but hey, you only live once right. Marijuana, weed and drugs, in general I really couldn’t care less, do whatever makes you happy. But just understand, some of the states with legal weed, also have some of the highest unemployment rates, highest tax rates and highest real estate in our country. I just think that the possibility of these states legalizing recreational marijuana use and consumption is to encourage its citizens into willful sedation.

Sedation to numb the feeling of poverty, sedation to champion mediocrity and sedation into servitude. The industrial revolution is over, the majority of production has either become robotic or shipped overseas, and now they have just bid your local drug dealer out of a job. Drug dealers and bake sales, both cause controversy and both are usually done with no license and under the nose of the Internal Revenue Service.

Do what you want, do what makes you successful and fulfilled, just remember there is no such thing as a free lunch. Weed shouldn’t be illegal just as selling homemade dishes without consent from the government shouldn’t be criminal. You gotta ask yourself, these so-called progressive states that have legalized recreational marijuana consumption, why aren’t the political representatives of those very states toking up with their constituents? Maybe they know something, maybe they are hiding something from us all.

My Way or the Highway

From education to healthcare or insurance, happiness and satisfaction, money and job security there are many that attempt to dictate the path to success in these examples and many more. They always say something along the lines of, “I just want to make the world a better place”. Yet the only way to follow and adhere to their plan is to forfeit your own free will and your rights. They clamor to fix what they believe has been broken or what has been overlooked. People are people no matter where or when. The ideology behind creating a new “system” or a “better” way should only be taken with a grain of salt and taken for what it is. No one has ever figured out the perfect plan or the perfect society. Smokers and the obese, both must be outlawed if we are to ever institute socialized medicine and healthcare. If these people cannot be shamed into conformity, then, when this practice of “free” healthcare comes about they will take the majority of the money funding this exact program that only has a chance of succeeding if every person is fit and healthy. Smoking and obesity is what people have been doing since the beginning of time, yet for some reason marijuana is considered healthy if not applauded.

When it comes to education, happiness and wealth, again, the same is true. For generations now, a college degree was considered the distinguishing criteria that would separate you from your peers. Yet no one earns a college degree to sweep floors or clean toilets. All of these college graduates go to college to be a boss or a supervisor, if everyone is getting the same credentials to be in management, where will the workers and employees come from? I’m not trying to slander education, I’m simply stating that perhaps college is not for everyone. However; for decades that was the supposed path to happiness, wealth and success, now our nation is filled with graduates that don’t want to work and refuse to pay back their education loans.

The passive aggressive nature of creating a system or path to happiness and success is merely the “my way or the highway” ideology. “I will tell you what you should do, but I may not practice it myself”. There is no solution to people, other than allowing everyone to exercise their free will as they see fit. With that being said, to be free and to use your free will you also must accept the consequences of your decisions and actions, whether positive or negative. Without personal accountability or responsibility, there is no need or requirement for free will. Once that point has been reached, it’s always someone else’s fault.
