Happy Flush 'em Friday,
It's time to list the "winners" to be Flushed!

  • Sprint Long Distance phone "service" for charging me a full month when I canceled them for their lousy service on the 6th.
  • Selena Gomez for dating Justin Bieber (my daughter's choice)  
  • Justin Bieber (my son's choice)
  • Janice Hahn for paying gang bangers to be gang "interventionists" - stupid is as stupid does.
  • The baseball team from LA. Next year? Next owner?
  • Streaming movies that take longer to stream than play.
  • Potato chip bags that are 1) hard to open 2) contain fewer and fewer chips each time I am desperate enough to buy one.
  • Drunk-text know, people who drive like they are drunk, swerving and drifting in and out of their lanes, but, they are texting.
  • Fill in the blank_________________________________.
That's all for this week!

Be Honest Eugene

The advantage of being part of the Democratic left wing is that you can ridiculous outrageous things and apparently your boss just says, "Sounds good to me. Print it." Take for example Eugene Robinson who writes and "opinion" piece for the Washington Post. He wrote an article called Obama calls the GOP's bluff. In this opinion (yea, I know opinions are like...) Mr. Robinson begins with, 
Here’s how to negotiate, GOP-style: Begin by making outrageous demands. Bully your opponents into giving you almost all of what you want. Rather than accept the deal, add a host of radical new demands. Observe casually that you wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to the hostage you’ve taken — the nation’s well-being. To the extent possible, look and sound like Jack Nicholson in “The Shining.”

 If not for the fact that Eugene is conveniently forgetting that his president has been using Alinsky's methodology (as has the whole Democratic party) since he started as a "community organizer". Obama's favorite tactic is ridicule. Ask Donald Trump if the President is any good at ridicule. After one dose of  Obama smack D Trump decided not to run. 

Be honest Eugene, are you going to say, with a straight face, that Democratic leadership actually believes that Republicans just want to give  tax breaks to rich corporations? OK, bad question because I think they have begun to believe themselves.

Be honest Eugene, do you really believe the outrageous claim by white liberals that all the conservative white people hate people of color? Do you actually believe that schoolyard tactic? 

Be honest Eugene, or have you told yourself this foolishness for so long that you actually believe it?

No Tax Tuesday: Hahn the Elitist vs. Huey the Realist 7 5 11 Edition

Manure pit with treatment hoseImage via Wikipedia
Have you ever worked for a micro-managing boss? You know the type. They tell you to do something then want to stop you and redirect you every ten minutes because they just assume you're doing it wrong, which usually means just like how they would do it. After a while you just don't see the sense of doing anything unless they tell you exactly what they want, when they want it and what color shirt/blouse your should be wearing while completing the task. Poor management and unproductive results always ensue. 

That is what government regulation is to business and job creation. When the government tries to manipulate the creation of jobs, you know, "shovel ready" type jobs, the result is always less than beneficial. It seems pretty simple to me. The government tries to create a job, while the market (free market) responds to a real need. Take for example the whole green jobs hoax. What green jobs are they talking about? How many "green jobs" are there, like right now? 

How much greenness do we really need? How come the green light bulbs I buy cost more and do not last as long as my old light bulbs? How come a "green" car cost so much more than a normal car, thus offsetting the savings paid for gasoline?

My point is this: those who believe in more government, for example Janice Hahn, will only make things worse. Why? Because their arrogance makes them believe they know better than anyone and that if "they" control the money (redistribution) all will be OK. It's all about elitist control.

Now contrast Janice Hahn with Craig Huey. If you work for a living, no matter the wage, taxes are a killer. High taxes and government regulation kill the economy, kill jobs, for everyone. Let me put it this way. You are a normal American. You don't make more than the average for all Americans. You work hard your whole life to make a better life for your children. You have managed to pay off your house and when you pass away you plan to pass it on to your children. No a chance, says the likes of Janice Hahn and liberal elitists. Your children must pay a massive tax on their inheritance. You see, to Janice Hahn, your wealth needs to be redistributed.

Huey vs. Hahn, Control vs. Freedom

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Happy Fourth of July to you one and all! Thanks to the men and women who are serving our great country as we spend this day in celebration. May God protect them and bring them home safely. 

I would like to give a little shout out to two people. One is a new follower on Twitter names R C from Brazil who became a US Citizen. Thanks for the follow and thanks for being a part of this great country. I would also like to mention my old friend Mauricio from El Salvador. He came her as a teenager from a country in turmoil. His older brother literally gave his life to get him out of the country. Mauricio worked and supported himself while in High School. He became a US Citizen, graduated form USC and is now enjoying life here in the USA. 

My family comes from England, Wales, Italy and Spain, some via Cuba. What is great is that they all came for freedom and a better life. May Bless you and this country with freedom.
