Stopping the Gravy Train

You,  and I mean the person reading this blog, is paying for the massive gravy train our government provides to businesses such as GE, Monsanto, Koch Bros. Google, Microsoft and many others.  Your money is paying for a massive benefit to these companies through low immigrant wages, direct purchases and help to foreign countries which then buy goods and services from these huge conglomerates.  The net result is the rape of my pockets and yours.

Keeping up the myth of climate change is another way the government justifies moving our money out of our pockets to its benefactors.  The push now to steal the election from Trump or Cruz is just another round of efforts by the powerful to keep the gravy train going.  Mid-Eastern countries and Europe don’t want Trump because they are worried that their ability to pillage U.S. wealth will come to an end.

The underlying powers in the U.S. are huge.  As individuals unless we all voice that we want the democratic process, not the bought and paid for special interest process to work, we will lose our country to the pillagers.  These people want profits at the expense of middle class opportunity and at the expense of any national interest.  The next time someone in your neighborhood is robbed by an illegal immigrant, you can point your finger at Congress and at those interests that are letting even criminal illegal immigrants remain free. Perhaps we should all stop buying GE products or using the Google search engine.

Somehow those companies need to learn its in their best interest to defend American interests, not just their own pockets.

 

Spying on You

The FBI has revised its own rules about how it will use NSA data.  If you have ever had a conversation by phone or email with someone outside our country they can now review your emails, phone calls, and web traffic.   The FBI pretty much admits they were doing this anyhow, but now they claim legal authority to do so.  Basically, if you bought a kids toy in China they can look at all your correspondence.  

Why was there spying on conservatives and the illegal use of the IRS? The fact that both parties condone this intrusion is appalling.  That more than any other reason is a reason to elect a conservative that upholds the letter of the constitution.   I think Trump would like to use this power.  We are 1970’s Soviet Union or 2016’s China.  What you say is monitored.  What you write is monitored and bad things happen to people that make waves against the established money and special interest fed order.

Look around you.  WELCOME TO THE GULAG comrade!!!

 

Car Dealerships and Politics

Today I visited a well known local car dealership.  I admit I was lured by a promotion where it appeared I had won $1,000.  I knew that to be unlikely, but could not figure how I would not win from flyer.  I could not figure out how it was a scam.   I will admit it also got me thinking about buying a new car.  When I arrived and showed the sales guy the flyer he brought out a poster that showed how the wording on the flyer worked.  Yes, it was a scam.

I asked him how he felt about doing that to people and he said , “Well, it is a car dealership.”  On my end I was thinking,  ” There is no way I would ever buy a car from these people.”  It is more than the fact that they are dishonest, they are not only dishonest but completely unashamed of their dishonesty, even proud of it.  It is like you should expect them to be dishonest, and they expect you will buy a car from them even if they lie, mislead, and scam you.  Anyone that buys a car from these people can expect  pain and extra expense.

When Trump says that he no longer thinks highly of Cruz because Cruz’s poll numbers are better or where Rubio paints his competition by changing the facts, both politicians are doing the same thing as the car salesperson.  When Hillary ducts questions about Benghazi, or her email it is no different.  All of them would say, “Well it is politics.” 

If we vote for any of them it will, just like buying that car, cost us more and lead to pain and strife.  For both groups I have the same advice,  its my money and my life you want to abuse with your deceit.  It is not just politics or a dealership, it is my life and I am tired of you getting away with thinking it is OK to be a slime.  It is not OK.  It hurts me personally, and it hurts our country.  We, the citizens should expect more.  If you lie, cheat or steal, or even promise that which you have no intention of providing, you should be held accountable.  You should be, arrested, exiled, banned from society.  It is time for there to be a higher standard in American life.  Lets start with the car dealerships and finish with Congress and the White house.

 

 

Save Our Repulic stop the RNC

I am not a fan of Donald Trump and did not vote for him, however, I am even less of a fan of those such as Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio that are part of a plan by big donors to steal the election from its legitimate winner.  They are scared they will lose their power or have to pay legitimate wages to real American workers or that the Washington gravy train will get stranded in the station.

At this stage Rubio and Kasich are only in the race to try to steal the election at the convention.   They are part of a plan to create a brokered convention.  Two legitimate candidates are still in the race, Cruz and Trump.  If the Republican donor base succeeds in selecting a candidate that was not duly elected by the voters, then our democracy is dead.

Already with stagnant wages, changes in tax law under Obama, and Obamacare the average American’s life is immeasurably less secure and comfortable than it was.  The same people that are trying to destroy Trump are the same ones responsible for making our lives worse.   It is time to take our country back from big business and from those that continue to enrich themselves at everyone else’s expense.

 

Liberty University Betrays Christianity

Dear Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr.

As the President of Liberty University, your recent endorsement of Donald Trump is a stab in the womb for all those who wish to see the carnage that is abortion in America stopped.    Trump in on record supporting abortion rights for women and at one point did not even object to partial birth abortions when asked.   I can’t believe you are not completely informed about this.  Your endorsement of Trump in no different than telling every student at Liberty University that abortion is a viable option.

What did he offer you Jerry?  Trump said he would make deals with everyone.  Is he planning on supporting Christians by killing their babies?  Did he give you a ride on his plane?  Did he offer Liberty University more money in financial aid for students?  Is it really about the money?  Did he pay you personally?

Trump has a long history of supporting Democratic causes and views.  He has promised to work with them, to make deals.  Obviously, he has made a deal with you where you are willing to compromise your Christian values for some sort of gain.   What was said in that closed door meeting between you two where you agreed to do this?  Is there some sort of dirt you need to avoid?  I do not know what really happened but given the history of Liberty University, it is very suspicious.

Congratulations on your stance.  It is one that shows no principle, no backbone and nothing but contempt for the cause of life.  I would urge every student at Liberty University to go elsewhere.  I know that for my children I will urge them not to consider every going to a place that has the same values as any secular institution.  Your choice to endorse Trump is a betrayal of life, and a betrayal of every student and alumni of Liberty University.

It is always sad when a “believer” appears to fall.

Sincerely,

Keith Risman
