We're having extra guests for Thanksgiving


Thank you, Gary Varvel.


This editorial cartoon was originally published in an online newspaper run by the Indianapolis Star.

After this cartoon was seen by the public, a few people complained, as some people always do when a politically-incorrect viewpoint is aired.

The newspaper changed the cartoon by removing the moustache from the man who was climbing in the window, and the newspaper moved the cartoon to a different part of the website.

This is increasing evidence that the only viewpoint that will be seen by a large percentage of America is the politically correct viewpoint.

I haven't been politically correct since I began blogging.  Link to an essay I wrote in July 2012 called The End of Racism.  This essay proves that race is a meaningless concept.  That's the reason why racism will end.

Fortunately for me, I don't have to kneel down when I meet the editor of a newspaper.

If you think this cartoon is racist, please tell me which race is being discriminated against, and please tell me what makes you think that any of the characters in this political cartoon are members of this race.

Link to a web page that really is racist because of a difference in clothing styles and skin colors.  The web page is also sexist because one character is male and the other one is female.  By the way, where is the second world in their diagram?  It's apparently as invisible as the middle class in America, and just as useless to the radical leftists.

A group of people who work for other people and who receive a moderate amount of income for the work that they do are a bridge from poverty to wealth, but hard-core radical leftists hate wealthy people, so they don't want anyone to know that it is possible to go from poverty to wealth through hard work.

Try not to cry


Ashley Picco died in her sleep.  She was married and pregnant.

A few days later, doctors performed an emergency Cesarean Section to try to save the baby, only 24 weeks old.

While the baby, named Lennon, was dying in an incubator, Chris, his father, sang this Beatles song and played it on a guitar.


This video was uploaded to YouTube on November 12, 2014.

As of November 14, 2014, this video has been watched 6,768,124 times.

Canadian friends are some of my best friends


On the same day that a man shot and killed a Canadian soldier who was guarding the Canadian Parliament ...


This photo was taken minutes before he died.

... Jeff Jimerson, who was scheduled to sing the American National Anthem at a hockey game ...

... started by singing the Canadian national anthem.

Thank you, Jeff.


My late wife and I vacationed in rural Nova Scotia.  All of the people we met there were the friendliest people we've ever known.  My late wife's closest girlfriend was a woman she met when she, as a girl, were taken on vacations there by her parents.  The two girls met and became life-long friends.  They both graduated from nursing schools, and they both telephoned each other at least once a month until my late wife's last illness.

Elections have consequences


I didn't say it, Bam-Bam and his Democrat friends did.

... but I do agree with the people who gleefully said it in 2012.

Please excuse me while I laugh some more ....




Oh by the way, Democrats, if your party had not forced America to accept some very bad policies, like:
  • a sharply-reduced military strength,

  • poor relations with America's traditional friends in Europe and the Middle East, including Israel and the secular governments of Egypt, Syria, and Libya,

  • hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars spent on the Muslim Brotherhood instead of being spent in our own country,

  • weapons and ammunition being purchased from U.S. gun stores and then shipped directly to Mexican drug gangs, who then used them to murder Americans including Brian Terry

  • using the I.R.S. like a political weapon to hurt the people on your enemies list (remember Lois Lerner?),

  • using the National Security Agency to collect information on American journalists (remember James Rosen?)

  • sending Border Patrol agents away from the border,

  • refusing to spend money, already allocated by Congress, on a fence to protect the U.S. from illegal aliens, some of whom are carrying Muslim prayer rugs, and others who are carrying diseases,

  • refusing to listen to medically-qualified personnel who told you, in no uncertain terms, to protect the residents of this country from deadly diseases like ebola and the entero-virus,
... you would not have to explain your election losses to your friends.


One more thing. There was a time in America's not-too-distant past, when being "liberal" meant being open-minded.

Are you open-minded to the possibility of building a pipeline that would transport oil and natural gas from Canada into the United States?

Are you open-minded to the possibility of strengthening our country's borders, so that the only people who will enter are healthy people?

These are the first two paragraphs of an article dated October 6, 2014 published by the Washington Times.
Communicable diseases continue to be a problem at the New Mexico facility built to house illegal immigrant families surging across the U.S.-Mexico border, and the immigrants themselves aren’t taking their own health care very seriously, according to an audit released Monday.

While the Border Patrol is doing a good job of handling the surge of illegal immigrant children traveling alone without their parents, the families who are being housed at a special facility continue to have health problems and trouble using the bathroom, the Homeland Security inspector general said.

Are you open-minded to the possibility of building a wall from San Diego, California to Brownsville, Texas?  The money has already been approved by Congress, so it won't add a penny to the deficit.

Are you open-minded to the possibility of using armed soldiers from the U.S. Army or the National Guard in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas to enforce the security of this wall, as mentioned in my 12/21/15 essay about emigration?

Are you open-minded to the possibility of reducing foreign aid to countries that are controlled by radical Muslims?

Are you open-minded to the possibility of reducing the top income tax rate for individuals and corporations, which would have the effect of increasing the amount of money that is received by the U.S. Treasury?

Are you open-minded to the possibility of impeaching a man who truly deserves to be impeached, the President of the United States?


The policies that you push during the next two years will have consequences, too.


I just thought you should hear it from me before I start laughing again.

If you thought that you missed out on all the Halloween fun

These people will miss all the fun they could have had for the rest of their natural lives, but President Obola (I mean Obama) is deliberately trying to infect every American with this disease, just because his father's dreams went unfulfilled.


If you hate the U.S. as much as Obama does,
this is a useful weapon in biological warfare.
The enemy, in his mind, is every American.


President Obola won't take some very simple precautions

... even though the Canadian government is taking these precautions, and even though medical science knows how to reduce the spread of any disease.

There's a big difference between my president and the President of Canada.  My president's highest priority is not the safety of America, but the fundamental transformation of America.

These are the first paragraphs of an article dated October 8, 2014 in the Toronto Sun.
OTTAWA — Canada will step up its screening of passengers coming from West Africa for the Ebola virus, the health minister said Wednesday.

Rona Ambrose said screeners will monitor the body temperatures of individuals flying into Canada from African countries such as Liberia and Guinea, where the outbreak has been most deadly.

“Canada’s preparedness is high,” Ambrose said.

The department did not immediately elaborate on what those screenings would look like.

The announcement came only hours after a similar announcement that United States airports would also be screening all passengers coming from countries affected by Ebola.

Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to bring Ebola into the United States, died Wednesday. He arrived in America on Sept. 20 and died in a hospital in Dallas.

The immediate and potentially deadly problem with the current U.S. policy is that not many of the people who come into this country illegally, or who enter, using a visa legally, but who illegally stay longer than their visa allows, will be arriving on airplanes.

Most of these illegal immigrants simply walk across our southern border, looking like this,





..  but they'll leave the country looking like this.

President Obama's 2014 Halloween costume


To him, this is not a costume, this is the kind of clothing he would wear every day if he could wear it and still have an approval rating that is even slightly above 40%.



His approval rating, according to the average of all of the polls that are followed by Real Clear Politics.

All he needs now is a rifle and the directions to the Canadian Parliament.

The sleeping soldier


This photo, with the caption already on it, appeared on my Twitter page.

I simply copied it from there and pasted it here.




May God continue to bless the United States military.

Counting down the days


This photo, with the writing already on it, was sent to me via e-mail by a friend.

The man in the photo is Barak Hussein Obama, and he will be leaving the White House in January 2017, whether or not he wants to do so.




In America, a "girlie man", sometimes spelled "girly man", is a man who has a very small amount of masculinity.

Does this man look like he is capable of making cool-headed decisions as the Commander-in-Chief if-and-when the United States has to fight a real war against Russia, China, or one of their allies?

Real men don't ride bicycles that have training wheels.

Link to a website that is counting down the days, hours, and minutes until Bam-Bam is out of office.

This is why I call him Bam-Bam.  He truly has the mind of a child.

A child who never learned to play with other children.

He has 781 days and 15 hours left as a resident of the White House as of the date that I published this page.

Another reply to a GOP fundraising letter


The letter was sent to me through e-mail by someone named Chris McNulty and authorized by the Republican National Committee.

This is how I responded:
I am a proud member of the Tea Party.  I want our party to embrace the overwhelming unifying force that was embodied in the awesome presence of President Abraham Lincoln, who brought two parts of the United States back together when they had been shooting at each other.

In contrast, President Barak Obama has been trying to divide my country into different factions by class, by race, and by other useless criteria.  I haven't seen the GOP, as a group, say to him in any public manner, and with any kind of effort, that he was wrong to do so.

When he gave orders for Christian members of the U.S. military to be denied access to Bibles, rosary beads, written letters from Catholic bishops, and other blatantly-unconstitutional forms of religious discrimination, you didn't tell him that he was wrong and you didn't tell Congress that he was wrong.

When he wanted to divert billions of taxpayer dollars from domestic programs to welfare for illegal aliens, you didn't say no.

When he took sides in a local murder trial against George Zimmerman, by saying "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin", you didn't tell him that the outcome of the trial was none of his business, and that as the President, he had more important things to worry about.

When the number of his impeachable offenses became larger than Nixon's and Clinton's combined, you didn't lobby the House Judiciary Committee to begin writing impeachment articles.  You didn't even publicize what those offenses were, which would have helped to organize public support for them.

But those aren't the biggest examples of a party that has given up on the idea of being loyal to the country and yet a party that opposes the policies of the Democrat Party. This is much worse.  When conservative members of the party have become the sole nominee of the party in an election, you have actually helped the Democrat candidate!

This is inexcusable.  I cannot in good conscience continue to support your party because you are no longer supporting the country.  Instead, you are supporting a President who hates the country's founding fathers and our founding ideas.

I will contribute money and, on my blogs, ideas that are designed to help individual conservative candidates.  If you want my support, support them.

This gun also saved lives


In January 2013, I wrote an essay on this blog called This gun saved lives.  It was about a woman who was at home with two small children when a stranger broke into the house.  The woman was armed with a handgun, and on the advice of the police, she and the children tried to hide in the attic of the house.  The intruder apparently heard them, because he went upstairs, looking for them.

Unfortunately for the intruder, the woman was armed with a handgun, and she had been taught how to use it by her loving husband.  The intruder was shot five times and later arrested.  The woman and her two children were not harmed because she defended herself.

This is what happened at a Philadelphia hospital in late July

As reported by the website Philly.com on July 26th.  I copied the first seven paragraphs of their article and added a comment after the sixth paragraph.
A troubled patient opened fire on a caseworker and psychiatrist in a small office at a unit of Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Delaware County on Thursday afternoon, police said, leading the doctor to draw his own weapon and shoot the assailant.

The confrontation left the caseworker, 53-year-old Theresa Hunt, dead and the 52-year-old psychiatrist, a veteran doctor at the hospital whom sources identified as Lee Silverman, with a graze wound to the head.  The patient, Richard Plotts, was in critical condition Thursday night from three gunshot wounds.

The violence sent a shock wave through the normally quiet campus of the medical center on the border of Darby Borough and Yeadon.  Police vehicles swarmed the scene and armed officers charged through the building - the Sister Marie Lenahan Wellness Center, across Lansdowne Avenue from the main hospital - to evacuate doctors, nurses, and patients waiting for routine appointments.

Authorities said they believed Silverman shot Plotts three times in the torso and arm.  Silverman was expected to be released from the hospital Thursday night and recover fully.

Plotts, of Upper Darby, who appeared to have a long criminal record, was undergoing surgery Thursday night at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.  If he survives, he will be charged Friday with murder, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said.

It was not clear why Silverman, a doctor for nearly 25 years, was armed at the office.  Bernice Ho, a spokeswoman for Mercy Fitzgerald, said Thursday it was against hospital policy for anyone other than security guards to carry weapons.

[I bet the hospital administrator is already rethinking this policy.]

Donald Molineux, chief of the Yeadon Police Department, said that if Silverman returned fire and wounded Plotts, he "without a doubt saved lives."
Without any doubt whatsoever.  This doctor, armed with nothing but a handgun, his firearms training, and some simple common sense, saved lives.

Other news sources have reported that Mr. Plotts had over a dozen extra bullets in his possession when he was shot.  It's not too hard to draw the conclusion that he intended to kill more than just one person.

And this is what happened in a Baltimore hospital in September 2010

As reported by ABC News on September 16, 2010.

Please note that when this doctor was attacked by a man who had a handgun, the doctor was unarmed, and so, he was badly wounded.

Please also note that this article has its' own links to other articles.
A gunman upset over news about his mother's medical condition opened fire inside Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital Thursday morning, wounding a doctor before fatally shooting his mom and then turning the gun on himself.

Warren Davis, 50, the alleged gunman, grew "overwhelmed" when the doctor told him about the care of his mother, Jean Davis, and pulled a small semi-automatic handgun from his waistband at about 11:11 a.m., according to Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld.

"[Davis] was receiving some news about the care and condition of his mother just outside the doorway of [her] room and he became emotionally distraught and reacted," said Bealefeld.
Davis then "fired a single gunshot that struck the doctor in the lower chest, upper abdomen," said Bealefeld.

ABC News has confirmed that the injured doctor is Dr. David Cohen, an orthopedic physician who specializes in spine surgery, osteoporosis and scoliosis, according to his biography on the hospital's website. He was rushed to the operating room and is expected to make a full recovery.

"The doctor collapsed just outside the doorway of the room and Mr. Davis was last seen running into the room brandishing the handgun in the direction of his mother, who was confied to her bed," said Bealefeld.

**********


Hillary, the timely presence of the U.S. Sixth Fleet could have made a very big difference on September 11th, 2012.

Just look how much difference one Philadelphia doctor made a few weeks ago when he was armed with one handgun.

Only one person died from angry gunfire, and the angry gunman was injured, arrested, and he will be prosecuted on the charge of murder.

Political speech is alive in America


It is often a sign of contempt when someone changes someone else's name or likeness.


Some people did it to Jimmy Carter.

The photo on the right wasn't photoshopped.


Some people did it to Ronald Reagan.



This photo is not photoshopped.


Others did it to George W. Bush by calling him "Shrub" and by photoshopping his photo.



These are similar illustrations of Obama.
Notice his two black eyes?
pic pic

He even satirizes himself!
Which is it? Are Muslims tolerant or intolerant?


Well, I have plenty of contempt for I.R.S. Commissioner John Koskinen because of his contempt for the rule of law, his contempt of the U.S. Congress and for his contempt of the American people, so I'm publishing this photo of two people who had to have been separated at birth.
