An indictment of the ABA

“Indeed, the ABA [American Bar Association] is truly a creature of these post-modern times. Its governing members view the political sphere and judicial sphere as one in the same, and worship raw power as the ultimate and only currency in social transactions. The modern ABA thus has embraced an ideology that views the rule of law as a mere extension of politics, and in a self-fulfilling confirmation of that view, conflates law and politics with unashamedly liberal policy prescriptions.”

— Ray Gifford
(attorney with law firm of Baker & Hostetler in Denver, Co)

Robot Marching Band


Jackson State Marching Band – Is that a pretty blue or what?

One of the biggest fears of the Establishment is that labor prices will go up if the spigot is turned down the least little bit by President Trump’s threat to reduce supply. Like real wages going up for the first time in 40 years is the biggest threat known to mankind! I wish the pundits who espouse that notion on TV would be paid what they were 40 years ago, then we’ll talk. They seem to want a permanent underclass of low-wage workers whether it be people from Mexico, the Middle East or Africa.

The new threat to labor is robots. Whenever increases to the minimum wage are passed like they did in Iowa (and the State Legislature promptly took that power away from counties), businesses like McDonalds immediately threaten to bring in automated kiosks. Robotic hamburger flippers. Advocates always see labor costs as the only cost of business, “Do you want a $15 dollar hamburger??”

But here’s the point, rather than the expenditure for the high price of a marching band (uniforms, instruments, the director, flying them here, flying them there), why not just play prerecorded music? Think of the savings! God knows the music would be better. A hologram projector could make us think humans were marching about the field. Its a win-win!

The trouble is, there is a certain sense of humanity that actual people bring to the game. An indescribable goodness and artistry. Why do they have a greeter at Wal-Mart? They could stick a robot at the door to say, “Welcome- to Walmart-how -may -I -help-you?” The robot would be cheaper and no sick calls, no irritating mannerisms. The robot would never miss the signs of a shoplifter.

Hell, why not replace Congress with robots? That’s a no-brainer!

Here’s an idea, do what works

It’s really irritating when the solution to a nation’s problem is as plain as the nose on their face, and instead of doing that, it is demanded of the American taxpayer to pony up and fund stupidity! North Korea is a basket case, South Korea is not. Haiti is a basket case, the Dominican Republic is not. In both cases these 4 nations share the same people, geography, climate and natural resources. The first is isolated as a peninsula, the latter as an island.

The GDP of North Korea is $28 billion. The GDP of South Korea is $1.38 trillion. The GDP of Haiti is a pathetic $8.77 billion. The GDP of the Dominican Republic is $68.10 billion. Does anyone not notice a trend here? The wealth of a nation does not fare well under a despotic dictatorship. The answer to these nations problems is: Don’t do that! Free markets and freedom go together. See how that works? Our way works, your way doesn’t. Stop putting your hand out, and start building yourself up.

These two cases blow out of the water any of that liberal/sociological mumbo jumbo. There are no excuses. You change! Its not America, we’re not the problem, you are! The differences aren’t minuscule, they’re stark! And its damn well time Congress stop playing this foreign aid game with our money. Its not the America taxpayers job to run around putting its finger in the dyke of every God forsaken basket case country in the world. Not to mention taking in all the refugees from their self-created problems.

The last vote

It occurred to me the other day that for people who think like I do, we have 1 vote left and that would be for Donald J. Trump in 2020. That of course is making one big assumption, that being he isn’t impeached before then. Barring that, I don’t see any other option. Democrats and Republicans have proven their pointlessness. The Constitution Party is pretty much defunct I think. Up until recently I was able to pretend I didn’t notice the fatal flaw in the Libertarian plank, open borders. I can’t anymore.

Libertarians have always had the idea that in a “free world” the right to travel is unequivocal. Okay…. maybe after utopia in all other areas had been reached, but until then you have just a few problems. One being you don’t jump to the endgame until all other parameters have been met. First off is the social welfare state we have. 60 % of immigrants immediately get on the welfare roles. You can’t bill me for the world’s problems! Not to mention all the homegrown welfare we have, corporate and individual. But that’s what you’re doing now, and you think it would get better with true open borders??

#2: Terrorists. If the North Korean nutcase wouldn’t be sending in agents with suitcase sized nukes, it would be anyone of the 1.4 billion nutcases fostering Islamic Jihad. It is beyond belief that anyone would advocate open borders anywhere outside of heaven. Absolute lunacy. A stance of nonviolence like the Amish sounds real great as long as you have someone around to protect you.

That leaves a completely barren electoral landscape. Trump’s the only honest broker out there and I don’t see anyone coming after him.

“I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them…”

“I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election… It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States!”

“We are much worse off today”

“We fought the Revolutionary War for no taxation without representation, it seems to me that we are much worse off today, because we are heavily taxed, and only the king’s corporations control this Country, together with mob rule, of the special interests.”

— James Montgomery
(1771-1854) Scottish-born hymnodist, poet and editor

[And this quote was sometime prior to 1854! I was falling down when I read the part about “corporations and special interests” controlling Congress. He knew the country was going downhill and it wasn’t even a hundred years old yet! Very few of us can see how much worse it has gotten in the ensuing 160 plus years. Well, those of us who voted for Mr. Trump damn well have a clue. – James Roach]

The “Beltway Barnacle” won’t put America First

Let’s see, you’re 80 years old and have just discovered you have an aggressive form of brain cancer. Say a miracle occurs and it doesn’t kill you, the treatment is going to whack you silly and lay you low for quite awhile. Your job is in the U.S. Senate where you are ostensibly working for over 300 million Americans and roughly 30 million illegals. As you admitted 8 years ago after you ran for president, “If someone tries to say you don’t slow down after 70, they’re lying.”

Now you’re 80. With a disease that is going to take even more out of you. Does it ever occur to you to think, “Hey, maybe it would be best for America and the State of Arizona if I were to turn my seat over to a younger, healthier man?” Hell no. You’re John McCain, egomaniac extraordinaire. You’re more important than 300 million people. You think the Senate couldn’t possibly turn without you. Well, I guess we’ll find out when they take you out feet first.

Power concedes nothing without a demand

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.”

— Frederick Douglass

[Much like how the globalist UK leaders are essentially ignoring the Brexit vote, our establishment leaders are wanting to ignore the vote of November 8. And are trying their best for a coup d’état to overthrow that vote. They immediately showed their contempt for the will of the people by blaming the results of the election on the Russians! They couldn’t believe the American people had chosen Mr. Trump over their globalist honey pot. Russians were the only explanation! And they will keep doing what they want until we force them to stop. Just like Frederick Douglass said. Even if he did say it 150 years ago or so. Eternal truths are… timeless. – Jim Roach]

Why is South Korea so pathetically helpless?

The news this week has been all about North Korea launching an ICBM for 36 minutes. They now have a delivery vehicle for the nuclear payload they got started on when Bill Clinton gave them a nuclear power plant in 1993. The consensus among the media elite is that we can’t do anything militarily against North Korea as they would immediately and decisively overrun South Korea. Huh?

My bullshit detector went off immediately. North Korea is an economic basket case, the people forage in the forest for food. Weight Watchers went bankrupt there years ago, there are no fat people. The people eat tree bark, rats and dogs. How is it a country as pathetic as that is such a military juggernaut? An unstoppable force? Destined to overrun Seoul in hours?

A little research turned up some interesting facts. South Korea’s world economic rank is 23rd of the world’s richest. North Korea is 180th of the world’s poorest (out of approximately 200). South Korea’s GDP is $1.36 trillion. North Korea’s GDP in 2013 was 28 billion. My calculator shows that to be a difference of 48 times. 48. South Korea is 48 times richer.

South Korea’s population is 50.62 million. North Korea’s population is 25.03 million. South Korea has exactly twice as many people. They could have twice as big an army. Are we starting to see a picture here? There shouldn’t be a contest at all. If North Korea were to sneeze at South Korea they should be wiped of the map. What could possibly be the reason for South Korea’s military ineptitude?

Oh that’s right, America has been their keeper since 1953.  

Ever since the truce reached in that bullshit United Nations “police action” 64 years ago. America has been shouldering the self defense burden for South Korea, Japan, Europe… policeman for the world so to speak. South Korea simply doesn’t have the will to survive. Just like Europe being completely helpless against big, bad Russia, even though Europe has a staggering advantage in people and money over Russia.

But the elites on TV spout this nonsense like it was straight from the mouth of God that is was normal for a country as rich as South Korea to be so helpless.  That a country with twice the population should live in abject fear of this dysfunctional pipsqueak of a country. I say bullshit. It’s time South Korea learned to stand on its own two feet. It’s time for the American taxpayer to quit footing the bill. Its time for Congress to get their head out of their ass.

How is it little old Israel can survive when they are outgunned 10 to 1 in the Middle East? Because they have the will to fight. They’re not fat and lazy like South Korea. Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog. South Korea is missing two things: a spine and some balls.

‘Stuff for Stuff’ (1949)

Free trade is wonderful when you can get it. The trouble is our country has committed unilateral disarmament for the benefit of those owning the overseas factories so they could benefit from the cheap labor in order to throw Americans out of work. This is the never ending quest of the globalists for globalization of the wage scale. Our trade deals have only benefitted the agricultural sector, as they told factory workers in essence to go to hell. How stupid do you have to be not to know that the only way to increase the wealth of a nation is by manufacturing goods from the raw materials of the earth. Americans woke up long enough to elect Mr. Trump, we’ll see how long it lasts. This film short is 68 years old. Very few things are new. – Jim Roach
