Why Do the Dems want to Impeach the President?

Do I understand this correctly? The Democrats want to impeach President Trump for pressuring the new Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden pressuring a previous Ukrainian president? Don’t the Democrats know if they investigate President Trump pressuring the new Ukrainian president, Joe Biden’s dealings with a previous Ukrainian president will also be exposed? Maybe that’s what they want. The Dems wouldn’t let Joe Biden run against Hillary Clinton. Maybe they don’t want him running against Elizabeth Warren either.

Sounds like the investigations of Trump colluding with the Russians. The Obama administration’s allegation of Trump colluding with the Russians was based on dossiers obtained from Hillary’s collusions with the Russians. …

Tax Increases for Jails – an Incredible Waste

The jail situation Arapahoe County, Colorado is so bad, the county wants to burden the residents with another tax increase. Fat chance of getting it passed. Jefferson County and other counties are in a similar predicament. Courts, public defenders, and prosecutors are all over-burdened. Police are unable to respond quickly to calls. Infrastructure is crumbling because there aren’t enough funds. Rather than determining the root cause of the problems, state and local governments continually propose tax increases as the only solution.

The root cause is not insufficient funds. The root cause is that state and local drug laws are redundant. The federal government has a multitude of drug laws. The real solution to insufficient funds in state and local coffers: Repeal state and local drug laws and let the federal government assume the burden of enforcing drug laws, prosecuting offenders, and jailing sellers and users. That would free up millions and millions of dollars that the state could spend on productive purposes.

I get it. This proposal would not go over well with politicians, police, judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and jailers. They have too much to lose. Most notably, they will lose power. And since we won’t need so many, some will lose their jobs. Heaven forbid, they may need to get private sector jobs. No public pensions, maybe lower pay. And that’s the point. The state and local funds could be better spent on people who build roads and do other productive things. …

“Protesters” killed at Gaza fence.

There’s been a number news stories criticizing Israel for killing protesters at the fence between Gaza and Israel.

I do not see a problem here.

From the way I see it, a bunch of sexually frustrated terrorists traded their miserable lives on earth for life in paradise with 72 virgins.  And the US sends their families a bunch of money.  Seems like everyone is a winner.…

What Happened: A Review

“I can carry around my bitterness forever or I can open my heart once more to love and kindness. That’s the path I chose” This is a quote near the end of Clinton’s new book, What Happened. As I was reading her book, I came to an entirely different opinion. Reading her book through the lens of an unapologetic Trump voter I had already decided this book was written by a bitter old woman.

After reading her book, I think we can all come to the reasonable conclusion that Hillary knows what happened. She lost the election. That’s what happened. I have also come to the conclusion, that she is almost clueless about why she lost (more on that later).

Hillary blames Comey’s announcement about her emails delivered 11 days before the election as the primary reason for her defeat. Surprisingly, she also blames unfair treatment in the press as one of the reasons for her defeat. The Trump people continually complain about the anti-Trump, pro-Hillary coverage. Before reading her book, it never occurred to me that Hillary also thought the coverage was unfair. I wonder what she would have thought about the press if she had won. Finally, she blamed the Russians. So both sides complained about unfair treatment in the press, and both sides complained about the Russians working to defeat them. Hillary’s book fell short of accusing the Russians of actually hacking the election, but she made it clear that she thought the Russians could have hacked the election.

Clinton wrote about her loss in coal country. She wrote believed she knew what was best for the coal miners. By voting for Trump, the coal miners were voting against their own interests. I guess Clinton thinks she knows more about what’s best for the coal miners rather than the miners themselves.

Clinton mentioned she regretted using the term “basket of deplorables” while repeating her belief that Trump supporters really are deplorable people.

Hillary ridiculed Trump for accusing Obama of tapping his phones even though it was later proven Obama really did tap Trump’s phones.

I don’t think it had much to do with the election but she did enter into a diatribe about cops killing blacks. Even when the shootings were legally justified, cops killing blacks is a major problem. She did concede some cops are good, especially the Secret Service officers that protect her.

She also wrote about disarming Americans. She used anti 2nd amendment rhetoric such as “commonsense gun control”, “gun safety”, and “gun violence”. She repeated that she doesn’t want to take guns away from the people while advocating for laws that would make firearms unavailable and deprive people of their gun rights without due process.

Hillary believed the presidency was owed to her because, well because she’s Hillary and because she’s a woman. She denied it in her book, but after reading the book I concluded she is a bitter old woman. Clinton knows she lost but can not came to terms with why she lost.

Hillary Clinton wrote that Trump’s ideas for change were entirely different from her own.  She said for Trump, change meant “handing a lit match to a pyromaniac”. When I read that, I laughed out loud. I enjoyed that passage. Her metaphor explains why she lost. Only she failed to recognize it.  For me, that was the best part of the entire book.

In my opinion, during the 2016 election the electorate wanted drastic change. The Democratic and Republican establishment failed to understand that. Hillary didn’t understand it either. The establishment from both sides are still bitter about the way the election turned out. Now that the people have handed a lit match to a pyromaniac, only time will tell if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.…

Athletes Disrespect AMERICA

The Bozos who have been kneeling during the National Anthem aren’t just disrespecting the flag, they are disrespecting America. They are disrespecting Americans.

NFL Commissioner Goodell said “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players,”  Yes, but it’s not just the President. There is an increasing “lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players” . Viewership is down, ratings are down.  Fans are fed up with the antics of these coddled, brain-damaged, goofballs. The President was merely echoing the opinions of millions of Americans who are fed up the antics.

The Broncos said “We’ll continue to support them and work together to advocate for values of respect, diversity and inclusion.” No, the Broncos are saying they will support the players who demonstrate a lack of respect for America, Americans, and the fans of the game. How can the teams insist on respect when they allow their players to  show such an utter lack of respect for the American people?…

Tanner Gun Show Review

It seems like almost every month I see a billboard advertising the Tanner Gun Show in Denver Colorado. After seeing these signs for years, in February 2017, I decided to see what all the hoopla was about. I went to the show. The gun show is at the Denver Mart just Northeast of 58th and I 25. Parking was free. I turned into the entrance off 58th and pulled into the first parking space I found. That was a mistake. The Denver Mart is a huge property with several buildings and a hotel. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to find my way to the entrance until I finally found a sign pointing the way. The show is in a building way in back, quite a bit north of the 58th Avenue entrance.

The show hours are Saturday from 9AM until 5 PM, and Sunday from 9AM until 4:00 PM. When I arrived around noon, there was no line to get in. I paid the $10 entrance fee, the lady that took my money stamped my wrist so I can get back in at a later time or the next day. I walked right in to the hall, no metal detectors. I don’t remember anyone asking if I was carrying but it was clear everyone was expected to declare their weapons.

The hall was packed with exhibitors and buyers. Wall to wall tables with all sorts of firearms, ammunition, accessories, holsters, knives, backpacks, food items, and other kinds of merchandise. The hall was quite crowded, but not so crowded that you couldn’t navigate between the tables, view and hold firearms, and interact with vendors. A few gun stores seemed to be represented but there were also quite a few independent vendors.

You are able to handle the firearms but only a limited amount because every gun in the show had a zip tie wrapped around the mechanism. Full handling such as racking the slide is not possible. You do not need to be an exhibitor to bring in your weapons, but non-exhibitors are also subject to the same zip-tie rule. No loaded weapons are allowed in the hall.

The people at the show were mostly white men but there was a fair share of women, blacks, and other minorities. The tables were staffed with mostly white men with a few women. There were a few women staffing the tables ranging from pretty young ladies that were clearly there to attract male customers along with a variety of women of varying ages and attractiveness.

I soon discovered that a gun show is an ideal place to make a firearm purchase. There was a wide variety of firearms. No one dealer can offer all the types of firearms that are available available at a gun show. If you don’t see what you are looking at one table, go to the next. Offerings ranged from the cheapest firearms to the most expensive. Most of the firearms were new, but used firearms were also available. Pricing varied from overpriced to very competitive. If you are price shopping and you know what you want, you can probably find several dealers offering the gun you are looking for. Peruse the tables, note the prices, and return to the dealer offering the best price for the firearm you want.

Holsters were available starting around $15.00.  Some holster vendors had replica handguns of various manufactures and models, so a buyer could try a holster with the exact kind of gun they intend to carry.

There is no “gun show loophole” in the state of Colorado. The corrupt and oppressive Federal and state governments illegally require all gun show firearm purchasers to  undergo a background check. One dealer told me he charges $6.00 for background checks because that’s what the state charges him. Background check approvals were taking less than 15 minutes. Another dealer told me if a purchaser was denied, he would charge a $50 restocking fee to take back the weapon.

In conclusion, the Tanner Gun show is a terrific place to purchase a firearm or other related items. Visiting the show makes it easy to comparison shop and view a wider variety of firearms that would be available at any one store.…

Donald Trump is not the President Elect. Yet

Donald Trump is not the president elect.  On election day, voters voted for their states’ electors, not for the President. The electors that we chose will vote on December 19. Their votes won’t be officially tallied until January 6. Donald Trump may be the de-facto president elect, but he won’t really become the president-elect until the results of the Electoral College are announced.
