Despite what the dimwit Cuomo said recently, America has always been great. Yep, we’ve had our moments in history, that were somewhat regrettable. What large family hasn’t had those moments? However, when you compare the good ol’ USA with the rest of the world, we were always better, and will always be better. Obama was dead wrong. Below is a list of what made this nation great and why.

  • This nation was founded on the premise that all men and women should be free to pursue their dreams and passions, and create a better life for themselves and their families. That freedom was guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In other words your dreams and aspirations were protected within a framework of laws, that no one could revoke just because they, didn’t like you, or because of your religion, or lack of religion, or any other trivial reason.
  • The Founding Fathers, made sure, that they recognized that these rights and freedoms were given to us by God the Father. By doing so, in essence were stating, that they were mere mortals, acting in God’s behalf, and greatness was his, not theirs.
  • The Founding Fathers were very clear when speaking of the sanctity of life, and how utterly important it was.
  • This nation was built by the hands of everyday men and women, working together, hand in hand. Forging America through the strength of families, and villages of hard working, law abiding people. People with a common goal of making America the greatest nation on earth. United and determined, in the face of any and all obstacles.

Through the years, our nation grew and prospered. People from all over the world wanted to join in the effort, wanted to be part of this remarkable place. They didn’t come here to re-establish their homeland on this continent, they wanted to be part of the American Dream. There simply wasn’t anything else like it. People from virtually every corner of the earth created this fabulous place. But it wasn’t a cacophony of hundreds of languages and cultures, it was one language, one culture, it was America.

Sadly, the left has steadily eroded all of that with the blatant lie that ” Diversity Makes Us Stronger”. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Strength is derived from Unity not Diversity. It is nothing more than identity politics to weaken the populace and make them more controllable.

The left has waged war on families for years with great success. The traditional family is now on the endangered species list. And the prospects for revival are dim and best.

The left is hell bent on allowing the killing of unborn children no matter how far into the pregnancy, and even after they are born. Several states have passed abortion laws that are nothing more than legal infanticide. The thought of this is horrifying to average Americans, yet the left is pushing forward harder than ever.

The left is constantly harping on how they are for women’s rights, to virtually anything they can think of. If you listen to these folks, you would think that women are somehow enslaved, with few or no rights at all. Yet in spite of this never ending noise, they are attempting to pass a law, that gives transgender males the right to share spaces previously for women only ( locker rooms, restrooms, etc. ) plus allows them to compete in women’s sporting events, putting women athletes at a huge disadvantage. They are in essence giving preferential treatment to mentally deranged males, over the rights of females. Let’s be perfectly clear, men that think they are women, are mentally screwed up. If you disagree, I don’t care, I ain’t running for office now, and never will be. So you can put it where the sun don’t shine.

The lefties want totally open borders, socialism, unbridled abortions, total ban on firearms, erasure of all American history and historical monuments. Abolition of the Electoral College. Hell, AOC is now calling for people to stop growing cauliflower, calling it “colonial”. There isn’t one traditional practice or tradition that the Democrats don’t want to destroy. They would like nothing better than to tear the whole thing down and start over. If you think that would work out well, watch C Span for about a month, you’ll change your mind. Can you imagine Maxine Watters or Gerald Nadler in charge of anything greater than refilling the paper towel cabinets? These people are more worthless than urinals in the women’s restroom. They are so obsessed with their hatred for Donald Trump, they have lost whatever sense of direction they may have once had.

So, ladies and gentlemen, you can put an end to this by showing your strength at the polls, and voting these idiots out of office. There are some Republican incumbents that need to go as well. We can’t allow this craziness to continue, if we do, we’ll lose it all. Show your American Muscle.

I was more fortunate than most, I was born into a family that was very open and honest about what went on in our family. I don’t remember any so called “family secrets”, everything was pretty much out in the open. My Mother was a staunch truth teller, and my Father talked a lot so secrets didn’t stand much of a chance.

So, you can imagine how difficult it was when I married into a family that had more secrets than the CIA. You almost had to have a security clearance before you spoke to anyone. If you divulged anything that you heard or saw, it was close to a flogging with a “cat of nine tails”, and it was entered into the records of shame. You were presented with an appropriate play back if you stepped out of line again. By the way, those records were permanent, more safe than ” the cloud”.

I was married for forty-six years before I was widowed, and the level of energy that it took to keep these skeletons hidden away was phenomenal. I’m convinced that it took a very big mental and physical toll on the keeper of the vault, my late wife.

Funny thing about those skeletons, they have a way of getting messages out of the closet, and into the hands of the wrong folks. When they do, it causes immeasurable pain to unsuspecting family members, that didn’t deserve it. The keeper of the vault is then faced with having to explain, and quite often leads to more lies to try and cover up the reason for the secret. Unfortunately, the trust is broken, and the vault keeper loses their credibility. Those skeletons have a new ally on the outside, it’s called DNA. Eventually DNA will free everyone’s captive skeletons.

So, I have some advice. If you have some of those pesky guys hidden away, I strongly suggest you set them free. Setting them free will set you free. I will tell you anything you want to know about my life, and my family. I have no secrets. I will not have any secrets. I don’t want the burden thank you. It’s hard enough to deal with the truth on a daily basis. I am not ashamed of anything I have done in my life. The bad things I have done, I have rectified with the Lord, so I don’t care what you may think. Your mere human judgment means nothing to me. No secrets means no one holds any power over you.




man with broken computer

My Chinese computer works pretty good, my Chinese pressure washer, not so good.

I did an article awhile back talking about what a really bad idea it was for American manufacturers to do business inside of China. Well, the events over the past few days have validated my concerns. Actually, if you had an IQ no larger than a piss ant, you could have seen it coming. Where the hell did we get all of these dumbass politicians that have inhabited the halls of government for the past 50 years? But, I’m not even going to discuss lame brain politicians. I’m going to discuss the lame brain everyday Americans. I’m going to include myself as one of the lame brains. I’m totally guilty as well. I’m a regular customer of Harbor Freight. Just about every tool they sell, if not every single one, is made in China. Hey, what’s a guy to do that’s an avid “do it yourselfer”, that needs a pneumatic nail gun for a relatively small task? Your choice is a name brand, made in America for $350.00, or a Chinese version that looks pretty much identical for a third of the price. The Chinese version is hidden away in my tool box out of sight, so I don’t have to explain why I bought the cheap knock off, and I just might use it again in about five years. Guys are sensitive about the quality of their tools. It’s not a good “look” to have second rate stuff in your big red roll away. That’s why I put all of the Chinese stuff in an old file cabinet over in the corner.

So basically, we’ve been suckered. We’ve been lured into buying second and third rate merchandise in the name of saving money, and in the end we have a house full of junk. I must admit, on a few occasions, I have actually ended up with a few pretty  good products that were cheap to purchase. I want to emphasize few. Also, even though some of the stuff works pretty good, it doesn’t even come close to the stuff made in the USA. I can tell you as a former owner of a metal fabrication shop, I rarely ever bought anything other than American made tools and equipment. As a business owner it just doesn’t make sense. A homeowner is a totally different proposition.

Now, if you wanna be really stupid, buy a Chinese product on line from Amazon or Ebay. If that dang thing fails 35 days after you buy it, you can forget getting it fixed or replaced. Even if it fails with the return period, get ready for hours and hours on the computer trying to convince them that it doesn’t work. Case in point, I bought a 2,000 psi electric pressure washer from Amazon. ( I use a pressure washer about 10 hours a year ) The price was right so I bought it. The weather was pretty bad for a couple of weeks after I purchased it, so I couldn’t really try it out. When I was able to try it out, it would only run for a few minutes and shut down. They made one excuse after another, and the clock ran out. I was stuck with a useless piece of crap. If I had bought it locally, even if it was made in China, I could have returned it and received some sort of compensation. Do not buy anything made in China online from a Chinese supplier, it’s a really bad idea.

A few short years ago, you just didn’t have a lot of choice. Just about everything in the world was being made in China. Manufacturing in the USA was almost non existent. That’s slowly beginning to change thanks to President Trump. I would sincerely prefer to by American whenever possible, but we’re not quite there yet. I’m 100% behind President Trump in his efforts to level the playing field with China and others. I’m willing to pay the higher prices if it puts America and Americans in a better position. I’ll give up my Harbor Freight habit for a stronger more prosperous America.

Before I close, there is one more big concern that I have. I heard someone on TV say what I have been thinking for awhile now. A couple of years ago, I bought a home surveillance system for my house. It used a DVR with a hard drive. You were supposed to be able to connect it to your computer and give it an email address, so you could view what the cameras were recording from remote locations with your smart phone. After I thought about that for about 1 3/4 minutes I decided there was no way I was going to give this thing an email address connected to my computer, with the Chinese company managing the data. How much surveillance is built into the electronic devices we use on a daily basis? There are millions of Chinese made computers running at this moment all across America. That sounds a bit risky to me. I recently bought a high end camera drone. To use my smart phone as a navigation tool, I had to download the software from a Chinese app. The app had other functions piggy backed onto it, and there was so much activity on my phone it was draining the battery within four or five hours. I had to go into my phone and find all this stuff and delete it. The stuff I deleted had absolutely nothing to do with flying the drone. Who knows what these attachments were doing? Were they grabbing info from my phone? I’m not smart enough about phones to really know. I got a little paranoid over it.

Back the President on this one. In my opinion, he has it totally correct.

wacky happy face

I wasn’t always an addict. I sorta had a normal life once, but it’s been so long ago I barely remember it. I went back in my memory to find out when it all happened, when I became addicted to politics. I don’t think I gave the matter much thought prior to Bill Clinton’s time in the White House. I really didn’t pay much attention to “Slick Willy”, he was sort of a middle of the road guy. Most of his craziness happened after dark. He had a roaring economy, and I owned a small business, things were going well and I was too busy to notice what he was up to. I did think that Serbia thing was sort of wacky. Never took the time to really look at it.

I voted for George W. Bush. I thought he handled the 9-11 tragedy pretty well, and brought Americans together in a time of crisis. However, I totally disagreed with the Iraq war, thought that was a huge mistake. Saddam was a powerful dividing force between Iran and Syria. As bad a guy as he was, the Iranians were afraid to take him on. When he was gone it was a green light for Iranian expansion. During the Bush years, is when I first began to notice the viciousness of the press against Republicans. It bothered me.

So 2008 came along and Barrack Obama appeared on the scene. I thought he was an interesting guy, seemed to be a little green to be running for president, but what the heck. His ethnicity didn’t bother me at all, why not a black president I thought. I certainly never was a John McCain fan. I always thought John was a sorry excuse for a Republican, although I ended up voting for him. Barrack was never really vetted, and nobody really knew much about him.

So, Barrack Hussein Obama was sworn in as president, and that is when I became addicted to politics. What caught my attention was his constant apologies to other world leaders about America. The first lady saying that she was never proud to be an American. But, when he bowed in front of the Saudi King, my mind would never be right again. After he did what many call his ” World Apology Tour”, I lost all respect for the man. He was a little too cozy with the Muslim world, and it made me very uncomfortable. After all, it was just a few years earlier, Muslim terrorists killed almost 3,000 Americans at one time.

Not too far into his presidency, it became quite clear, he had a distinct dislike for the Police, and his buddy Eric Holder was right there with him backing him up. In my opinion, we are still feeling the effects of their attitudes, when we witness a never ending assault on our peace officers. Nobody could ever convince me otherwise. Ask yourself; How many police officers were gunned down during the Clinton and Bush years?

Now take a look at the last two and a half years, and the never ending attacks on President Trump and his family. The media have been like rabid dogs. The Democrat politicians will not let up, even though their narrative has been proven totally wrong.

People, I seriously need some type of intervention. I think a tropical island with no communications other than the Nascar channel, might work. Maybe an app for Motor Trend TV as well. I think I would have to have an air drop at least once a month of burgers and fries from Nancy Jo’s, and a cooler of Dos Equis in the green bottles. Oh yeah, a case of Little Debbies chocolate covered sugar wafers. MMMMM.

Washington school district wants teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during Ramadan



A religious liberty advocacy group is threatening to slap a Seattle-area school district with a lawsuit unless it revokes a letter urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during the holy month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, including skipping tests.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them “Ramadan Mubarak,” which means “Happy Ramadan,” or “Ramadan Kareem,” which means “Have a generous Ramadan.”


The CAIR guidelines also instruct teachers to monitor Muslim students fasting and suggests teachers not schedule any tests on the Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Daniel Piedra, FCDF’s executive director. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

The defense fund claims Dieringer Superintendent Judy Martinson blindly followed the recommendations of CAIR and “enacted the letter as official district policy.” The defense fund sent Martinson a letter stating their complaints after a teacher and parent complained about the new procedure.

The May 6 letter also warned Martinson about CAIR’s anti-semitic advocacy and alleged ties to radical Islamists, which the group has long denied.

Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, told Fox News the pushback from FCDF is a “sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation that showing respect for and accommodating the religious traditions of Muslim students could result in punitive legal action.”

“Pluralism in America means recognizing the wide variety of holidays celebrated by students of different faiths and backgrounds, including by saying ‘Merry Christmas,’ ‘Happy Hanukkah,’ ‘Happy Diwali,’ or ‘Ramadan Mubarak,'” Hooper said.


Though there is nothing in the Constitution that prohibits public schools from accommodating students’ religious exercise to the extent it would not interfere with educational interests, FCDF claims that by issuing CAIR recommendations to district employees, Martinson “acted under color of state law to create an official policy that has a primary effect of advancing religion. The Ramadan Policy, in both adoption and implementation, plainly imposes liability on the District under the United States and Washington Constitutions.”

FCDC also takes issue with the suggestion that schools skip tests on Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha and claims CAIR is trying to justify celebrating the days by “falsely contending these holidays should receive similar treatment to Christmas.”

“This approach is wrong for two reasons. First, adding Islamic holidays does not further the district’s educational mission and academic goals. Recognizing holidays is constitutional only if the purpose is to provide secular instruction about religious traditions, rather than to promote the particular religion involved. Second, CAIR’s recommendation that teachers schedule tests around Eid Al-Fitr and Eid would alleviate no burden on Muslim students,” FCDC said.


Monday marked the start of Ramadan, a monthlong celebration that began in the seventh century and commemorates Allah, the Arabic name for God. Muslims are expected to pray at night, fast during the day and abstain from sexual activity between sunrise and sunset.

Calls to Martinson seeking comment were not immediately returned.



These are the idiots that won’t let you say ” Christmas Holidays “, won’t allow Christmas trees or decorations in or around any city, county or state building. Won’t allow you to say ” Easter Break”. No prayers before athletic events, on and on. These miserable pieces of crap have made absolutely certain that the name of Christ is never seen or heard in or around a public school. They have pretty much banned the Pledge of Allegiance, and the brainwashed students take a knee during the National Anthem. They take away the parents rights every chance they get. These totally useless individuals don’t deserve to live in the ” Land of The Free and the Home of the Brave “.  They are a disgrace to this glorious nation.

Bill Haley and The Comets

I became a teenager in the early 1950’s. Becoming a teenager is probably exactly the same today, it’s like jumping into some kind of exotic pool of dreams and aspirations, you’re right on the brink of becoming an adult, and it’s super exciting. And what makes it more exciting is those incredible sexual feelings going on in your brain. It’s hard to turn your brain off long enough to sleep. Of course one of these many  incredible experiences going on is popular music, you feel like it’s your personal soundtrack, tailor made for your life. When I was becoming a teenager, rock music was just being born. How lucky for me!! Those guys in the picture above, ushered it in with style with the hit song ” Rock Around the Clock”. That song made us crazy, and all we wanted to do was dance.

Holy cow, the music industry exploded with all kinds of really cool performers. Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Little Richard, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Little Willy John, and more. Who could forget those awesome groups like, The Platters, Ike and Tina Turner, The Four Freshmen, The Kingston Trio. The list just goes on and on. There was nothing like it before or after. It was the birth of Rock.

Drive In Romance

Another major stroke of luck, Drive In movies were the big thing, and I was getting my first car, a 1946 Ford sedan. This could have been me on any given Saturday night. A lot of steamy windows. Man, what a great time to be a teenager. What made it even more exciting, along with the really cool music, Hollywood was pumping out movies about teenage life, you felt like you were in every movie, especially “Rebel Without a Cause”. I had my James Dean signature jacket with the upturned collar, and well oiled ” duck tail ” hair style. Levi’s worn low on my hips and a whole closet of white t shirts. Of course I smoked the signature ” Luckies “, kept ’em rolled up in my t shirt sleeve. That was my “greaser” I.D. Every day was style day. Everything was about style, the way you dressed, the way you walked with a swagger, the way you held your cigarette, even the way you exhaled the smoke. Everything had to be done exactly according to code if you wanted to be cool, and I knew the code.

1957 Chevy

Man, the cars were crazy cool. They just kept getting faster and better looking every year. Back then, Detroit was pumping out new body styles every couple of years, bigger engines, more chrome, and we couldn’t wait to see what was coming next. September was a big deal, when we got to see the new models and drool. But, I was a poor boy from the working side of town, I couldn’t afford that new iron. I had to make my 1950 Ford two door look cool, you wouldn’t be caught dead an a stocker. My ’50 was lowered, lake pipes, aluminum racing discs, twin pipes, and the mandatory Hot Rod Club plaque swinging from the rear bumper. I’m gonna let you in on a secret. People hang those fuzzy dice on the rear view mirror thinking that’s what was cool. No baby, what was cool was a shrunken head that looked just like the real deal, long black hair and stitched up mouth. That was cool. Go try and find one of those today.


Like all good things, they don’t  go on forever. That fateful day arrives when you leave school and have to join the work force and become a card carrying adult. But what matters, is even though you became a responsible adult, you don’t have to give up being cool. However, it’s recommended you give up the crazy stuff. Leave that for the next generation. But you always have one consolation, if you grew up in the fifties, ain’t nobody gonna be as cool as you were…. ever. That’s the truth.

Blob Fish

I love this picture, and I knew I would find a place to use it someday. The epitome of a sad face. 

I used to be a pretty carefree guy. Pretty much lived in my garage, working on my cars and motorcycles, getting ready for the next adventure on two or four wheels. My ghetto blaster making the rockin’ sounds of ZZ Top or the Doobies while twisting nuts and bolts. It never crossed my mind what the hell was going on the Washington DC, or Sacramento. I crisscrossed the Mojave Desert on my trusty MX400 Yamaha dirt bike, and slept in my trusty old Ford Econoline van. My version of an RV. I’ve slept in the desert with a million stars overhead without a care in the world. 

That’s what candidate Trump was talking about when he was talking about ” Making America Great Again”.  Those days when you could make a decent living, own a home, have some big boy, and big girl toys. Not worry about being accosted while fishing off the pier at Huntington Beach at midnight, or strolling along Newport Beach in the moonlight. You could feel safe in your cities and parks. Now that I’m older, and watching my money a little closer, and maintaining a very nice home, the Democrat Governor and Legislature are constantly dreaming up new taxes and raising the old ones causing me great concern that they will eventually make it impossible to stay in the home I worked my entire life for.

My friends, it’s the greedy politicians that are sucking the life blood from you. It used to be every man for himself. You either made it or you didn’t. You sank or swam. Now, the politicians ( social engineers ) want to take your hard earned money to support the slackers, addicts, and any other socialist program they can dream up. The reason it’s getting harder for you to support yourself is that you are supporting a horde of others. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the brilliant bastards came up with the astronomical retirement plans for public employees that you pay for with your tax dollars. Think about that for a minute, you paid social security taxes for your own retirement, and now you are paying taxes for someone else’s retirement. And if your working past retirement age, you will pay taxes on the social security that you already paid taxes on once before. Are you getting happier?

To add insult to injury, these brilliant bastards I spoke of earlier, have passed insane immigration laws that have allowed our cities and towns to be flooded with illegal immigrants with little or no education, and no skills, that have definitely created an additional tax burden that you and I are paying for. Our schools and hospitals are being pushed to the point of breaking. Virtually every illegal immigrant is on some form of government assistance. In the face of all of this, the southern border is being overran by thousands more illegal immigrants, that we can’t possibly feed and house, and the idiots in Washington act as if it’s not happening. Totally ignoring it.

Virtually everyone, that is even remotely aware that sun rises in the east, is aware of this. You know it, you feel it. you experience it. You shop in your neighborhood market that you shopped in for years and you’re one of the few people that still speak English. You know damn well this isn’t right, and you also know in your heart who is responsible. It’s the sanctimonious asshole politicians and social engineers that tell you if you feel this way you’re a raciest and a bigot, a xenophobe. No you’re not, you’re just a poor sap that thought that all of that hard work and law abiding lifestyle would have some rewards, like a peaceful life when you got older. Who the hell wants to see Arabs walking around in their neighborhoods wearing the same shit they wear in Syria or Somalia? This is America it ain’t Afghanistan. It’s a sad day in America when a blind person with a seeing eye dog can’t get a ride in a cab because the driver is a Muslim and hates dogs. Anyone that hates dogs doesn’t belong in America.

Because these brilliant bastards want to control every aspect of your life and thoughts, they want to strip you of your right to free speech. They also know if they strip you of your right to keep and bear arms, taking your rights to free speech will be one heck of a lot easier. If you don’t believe me, look what happened in England. That’s exactly what they are trying to do in America. Those poor suckers in England have been reduced to little more than serfs.

Probably the saddest part of all of this, is that the free press, has become the mouthpiece of the leftist politicians, that want to turn this country into a socialist hell hole. The free press should absolutely be the very last barrier of resistance, the defenders of total freedom. The press is no longer the defenders, they are the facilitators. This country is being turned wrong side out by unscrupulous politicians and big money manipulators like Soros and others. That’s the way I see things because I’m a Nationalist, not a Globalist. Screw everyone else, fight your own damn battles, America First.
