I have been pondering….

There is a lot I remember about the sixties culture and how the “adults” of the time were my teachers, spreading their ideas in the classroom. There was a mix of traditional and the new revolutionary educators. I still recall the clean cut and hippy-dippy dichotomy. And I, with my #SkullFullOfMush, was fortunate enough to grow up with some wonderful learning experiences emblazoned within my soul. 

Honestly, nothing has changed regarding the differences between those who love and fight for freedom to choose and those who love to fight for suppressive totalitarianism in my lifetime. Deception is still the primary tool used to lull the masses into submission. 

I have been watching Paul Ryan. Is he honest? It seems like he is presenting himself in a deceptive manner, as though he is running for President.  

It is one thing to profess a positive attitude verses being a pessimist but it is wholly something else to profess victory and goodness when nothing is in writing or settled in the open with a debate followed by a vote. 

I am also watching Mark Meadows. Is he honest? Is he campaigning to take over Paul Ryan’s speakership? 

Another question is: Is the MSM presenting Ryan and Meadows deceptively? 

It seems like something is off. To quote Rush Limbaugh: Socialism funds nothing. Capitalism does therefore something is not sitting quite right in the media circus of faux healthcare and tax reform for it seems like the solution begins with honest leadership promoting healthy, robust and open debate. 

I am still waiting…..

Tea Party Patriots: Boots on the Ground

In case you missed it, the Tea Party Patriots had a great rally in Washington, D.C. last Saturday.  It was rather inspiring to see people working together on common concerns, united in purpose.

I watched it live and watched it again today.

Remember:Graham-Cassidy retains most of the ACA’s major tax increases” so Jenny Beth Martin is right to question whether or not the GOP is honest about Tax Reform.

And still no Full Repeal

What do I think about the GOP leadership’s decision to try and pass partial Obamacare repeal before September 30th? 

  • It is not Full Repeal on Day 1 of when President Trump took office.
  • They are bogusly hyping up what they have done with Graham-Cassidy for it is no where near Full Repeal.
  • Why the rush now except to use it to try and keep the GOP in power this election cycle?
  • I am highly cynical of dishonesty in the GOP. That is what I think of the faux Obamacare repeal.

In my opinion is it better to get a partial repeal of Obamacare now or keep fighting for full repeal?

Well, there are some conservative pundits claiming it is better than nothing at this point. True, but what about the next point? Can we stick it out and fight for more in making it a better bill?

Sure. Why die over half a loaf? (Thank you Clarence Thomas: Be Not Afraid, 2001 Francis Boyer Lecture AEI Annual Dinner (Washington) Publication Date: February 13, 2001 )

So my question is: Will the House and Senate fight for full repeal if they get partial repeal or will they continue the charade with Lindsey Graham and ignore Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul?

Random Chatter: 234/365

Editing No-no’s but I Did-did anyway

Chalking it up to old age, I just went through several posts and corrected the ###/365 numbers. No, I did not make note of it on each page so sorry for my followers who just got pinged again with old posts. 

Jump Rope Personal Challenge: Event 5 

Event 5 of the JRPC opened today and I am at the point I just want it over with. It was fun to jump each challenge. In a few months I will do it again. Sometime. Sometime in the many months future. Probably sometime in the far future. 

In fifteen attempts to do a double under I got close twice. It was hot. It was humid. The air in the box was barely moving in the smaller back area of the box. In order to meet the challenge of 250 single unders in the sultry Alabama summer, I pressed forward, leaving the double under for another day. Originally I set the board up for 1,000 singles but after hitting the first one hundred I felt my muscles whispering – 2 5 0 and stay focused

I took my advice and locked into that 150 to just get it done. Glad I had a plan. It was a reasonable workout after Monday’s 500 with the 2 LB rope

The good news is I am ready to go back to the torture comfort of CrossFit at Guns Out CrossFit

Thank you Senator Lee with a Boo Hiss to GOP Progressive Leadership

I am thankful Mike stood on voting principle to vote against NDAA and for continuous support to #MakeGovernmentAccountable to the people.

Boo Hiss to GOP Progressive Leadership for passing bills without exercising the will of the people to #MakeGovernmentTransparent.

When the NRA supported Max Baucus….

I used to care about who the NRA supported until they rated Max Baucus as one who had a great record on the Second Amendment and endorsed him for the Senate.

Max S. Baucus. The man who “regrets killing Single-Payer”, allegedly.

That is a problem with Single Issue voters who do not weigh the consequences of other important issues.

What’s Hidden in the Baucus Bill?

Yeah. And now the NRA-ILA is supporting Luther Strange over Judge Roy Moore.

Uh, why? To what end?

The Killers of Conservative Values

Honestly, I am so sick of McConnell and Ryan I am past wanting to spit. They are not, seemingly, honorable leaders of a Conservative movement. They are not, or so it seems, concerned with voters or what we want. They seem to be totally unconcerned about promoting Conservative Values. They seem to be consistently killing those values while smirking, smiling, and posing for the cameras. They are #TheEstablishment. The certainly seem to prove themselves #Progressives.

I think Rush has possibly nailed it: McConnell and Ryan Are Just Fine with Trump’s Deal

Thanks to Mike Lee, who is truly the #ConsistentConservative:

“Raising the debt limit without spending reforms is bad policy. Tying the debt limit to emergency disaster relief is a disgraceful process. The American people deserve better and I will not vote for this status quo deal that only perpetuates the worst of Washington.”  ~ Senator Mike Lee
