Why I Post Political things on Facebook

Political things on Facebook

A friend recently chastised me for posting political comments on Facebook saying that when I post things that I am not doing anything to change our political system. Unfortunately I did not have a ready comeback to his persistent question of what am I doing. I have thought about it and am posting this to everyone so at least you might understand where I am coming from.

I am a student of history. I read voraciously and understand that history repeats itself over and over and over again because people do not read or understand history, and people have not changed. We are programmed deep in our DNA to act and react and the predators who are our politicians (and many others) have figured out how to manipulate information and feelings in order that the people follow blindly their recipe to fix things.

Throughout history the first thing dictators do is shut down the press, and in this day and age the politicians have largely corrupted the main stream media so that they will never report the truth if it would hurt the Democratic party. Look at the incestuous relationship between the main stream media and the current administration. Hell, look at all the reporters either sleeping with or married to someone who has power over us mere sheeple. Here is one link: http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/media-administration-deal-with-conflicts/2013/06/12/e6f98314-ca2e-11e2-8da7-d274bc611a47_story.html

Political things on Facebook and conflicts

When you have these types of conflicts how can you expect the main stream media to give you the truth? How can you expect a media who overwhelmingly give money to one political party to be unbiased in their reporting or even care that they do? It is the same now as it has been throughout history and this country is going down a dangerous path. Read how Hitler got into power. He created crisises that only he and he alone could fix if just given enough power. He used an economy that went into the toilet to get elected vowing his version of hope and change. He killed Jews and gays and Gypsies and any other undesirables because good people stood by and did not speak up for fear of being chastised.

Other dictators have done the same thing. They use actors and authors and popular culture to sway people that they alone can fix things. When they take over the country they end up killing these people first, then the college professors, and then anyone who dare speaks out against them or the tyranny. Read and understand history or we are doomed.

So what am I doing? I am posting stories that most people do not see on Facebook hoping that some will read them to see things from other perspectives. The active and loud voices of dissent are the only things that keep people from tyranny. I am posting stories that do not come from the government, frankly because every single thing the government has told me for the last six years or more have been lies. It is sad that I cannot believe one thing the government says. So I am posting in hopes that one story or two or more will be passed on and shared in hopes that others will read something and not get their news from John Stewart.

I also have worked for the Republican Party the last two election cycles and have been a delegate. It is not because I love the Republicans, in fact I loathe the leadership more than I can put into words. I go and become a delegate in hopes of getting Tea Party people nominated and elected because I know that under this current political climate both the Republicans and Democrats are corrupt and rotten to the core.

I am working to get a states convention going so we can change the constitution so that we can get term limits and other amendments added to the constitution. I am giving money to people who want the flat tax and who want to abolish the IRS. I am attending Tea Party meetings. I read. I send out stories on Facebook even though people hate political things because when the greatest country in the world collapses, and we will, people will wonder what they could have did and I want to be one of the minority that is shouting from the roof tops.

On a personal level we have a small supply of food storage items. We have cash on hand in case of disaster. If ebola hits and explodes like I believe it will, then I hope others are doing this too. I also give money and clothes to charity, I deliver meals on wheels and this year I am going out to ring a bell for the Salvation Army. I am the guy who buys Christmas wreaths from cub scouts and if a neighbor calls and needs a hand I will be there to help out. I am part of an exchange where people donate their talents for the use of other people’s talents.

That is what I do.

Life is Like High School

Life is like High School

The older I get the more I realize that all of life is like high school.  You have no idea how much that disappoints me.  When you are trying to get out of high school when you are young, you dream of getting away from all the petty bullshit and all of the games that are played;  but you know what?  You never get away.  High school is with you throughout every aspect of your life and in the United States you will never escape it.

Remember going to high school and trying to navigate all the cliques, all the bull shit, and trying to be liked by everyone else around you?  It is the same way in your grown up life.  With the advent of Facebook you can now see how people act and behave and you see the things they put up with to get along, to not make waves, and to be liked.  What caused the writing of this article?  I had someone IM me on Facebook and tell me that she removed a post from my high school page because it was political, and as an aside she said she did not like my feeds because she did not like what I wrote about politics.  Excuse me?  I told her if she did not like it to remove me as a friend and she would get no more feeds from me and that is where it stands now.

High School and Politics

Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, highlights the high school phenomenon more than the election of Barack Obama.  Never has a man been elected without any vetting by the press or his own political party.  He is a ghost.  His past is muddled and we are not allowed to ask questions about it, his stories do not jibe (some would call them stories, I call them lies), he will not let anyone see his school transcripts and the birth certificate he submitted as proof has been shown to be a fraud put together by a novice PDF creator.  He was elected because he was black and because he could read words off of a teleprompter.  He had no experience running anything, let alone a country, yet he was elected nonetheless.  The blacks voted for him with a 98% rate, which means most of them voted for him because of the color of his skin.  It makes me utterly sad.

If you are on the right, like I am, you notice this happens all over the place.  News organizations fellate this president because they want to be liked.  The news shows do not get interviews with the guy, mainly because he is to busy appearing on The View (where he is trying to be liked), to busy hanging out with his holiday buddies (trying to be liked) and to busy playing golf (hey, who doesn’t like golf?)  When you are on the right the schools are against you, the press is against you, movies and video games are against you, all because the people running these institutions was to be liked.

Why being liked is not the road to travel, or get off the high school treadmill

The education industry in our country stinks.  It is absolutely rotten.  In Detroit only 7% of 8th graders can read at grade level.  Only 4% are proficient in math at this age.  The statistics are not great in almost all of our big cities.  We are told it is because we do not spend enough money on students.  In my state we spend $17,000 a year per student.  It is still not enough.  Black kids are getting the worst of it because their graduation numbers are abysmal.  Yet we are told day after day by the press and the unions how much teachers are needed, are valued, are worth every cent we pay them.  They want to be liked.  They want everyone to have a trophy.  In high school they pass you when you cannot do the work.  They get money for attendance, not results.

This government, this administration, had added more debt to the each and every one of us in the country more than all the presidents, through Reagan, combined.  I worry every day about the country we are leaving our kids.  Instead of fixing the problems, and risk not being liked, they kick the can down the road and they continue to spend money we do not have.  Obama’s cronies got a shit load of money.  His pie-eyed dreams of solar energy were a complete and utter failure, yet it made him and his followers feel good.  Obama is proud that more Americans than ever are on food stamps.  It makes him feel good, like in high school.  He is proud that more people are on disability than ever in the history of the planet, because it makes him feel good.  I do not want a man-child leading the free world or more importantly, destroying this country through his spending to make everyone feel good.

I may not be liked on Facebook but I do not care.  I may be done with it, I have not decided.  It is too much like high school and high school was filled with unimaginable douche bags who did the littlest work possible in order to be liked, or accepted, or loved.  There is no reaching for excellence, there is no pride in work well done.  Alas.

 

Facebook and political posts

Facebook and my political posts

I admit that I am a political animal and these days politics mean a lot to me because I think the future of our country is at stake.  Thus, I tend to post on Facebook a lot and I tend to lean way to the right on most political issues.  I do not like the Obama administration and I use Facebook to point out all the stories about this administration that do not get written about in the mainstream media.  There are a lot of stories that do not get reported.

All my friends that lean towards the Democrats tend to re-post all the crap put out by the Democratic machine.  Their messages require no thought and they put no thought into what they put on Facebook, they simply regurgitate the talking points.  I now understand how the Nazi’s took control because people are so very easy to persuade using outright distortions and lies.

I decided that I am not going to post on Facebook anymore, at least political postings.  I am going to leave them for my blog where they can go out into the universe and be digested by the masses.  It came to me today when I asked why no one in the Democratic party cares about the Obama campaign taking and asking for donations from people who do not live in this country, something which is highly illegal.  My Facebook friends would rather play Word with Friends or something like that because when I posed the question one guy said he just ignores my posts.  When my Democratic friends post something that they researched and requires thought, I always read their posts.

Facebook posts posted here.

I decided that I am going to re-post all my Facebook postings here in this article.  I will at least re-post the ones that I thought contained great thoughts and ones that were well-written.  The election is less than two weeks away and there is not much more time to get out the message.  So without much further ado, here are some of my latest and greatest posts about this election.

“So my question to my Democratic friends would be this. Do the ends justify the means? Is it OK to lie, cheat and steal to get to the ultimate goal of socialism? We make laws and the Democrats always seem to break them and there are never any repercussions. Are you telling the right we can do what we want to do and any laws and rules we make or break be damned?”

And that came with this link: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/bam_blind_eye_to_illegal_donors_8SWotytr1RvbhyDCRyyrEL

This post has to do with new regulations pushed through by our politicians and they have changed the amount of water a dishwasher can use.  Do you know using a dishwasher now is extremely more water-efficient that washing dishes by hand?  When they make the changes we will all have new dishwashers that do not clean well at all.

“The Democrats are at it again. They will not be happy until they control every single aspect of your life. They are controlling what size soda’s we put in our bodies in NY, and in the very near future, this is the Nostradamus part of me speaking, they will outlaw toilet paper because it causes pollution. If I were you I would start looking into getting a bidet. Or maybe we can wipe with our left hands and eat with our right like all the third world shit holes. God helps us. Why the hell would anyone with a brain want some fucking bureaucrat controlling their lives?”

What else have I posted on Facebook?

Here are some more articles I posted on Facebook.

“This is absolutely reprehensible. Whenever education has problems meeting test scores they always lower the standards. Now they are lowering the standards on tests, effectively telling blacks and other minorities, except the Asians, that they are dumber than the other races, they are not good enough or smart enough or capable of doing well on these tests. Now we will see self-fulfilling prophecies.

This is why we need to get rid of the department of education, and then we need to give kids vouchers so they can attend any school their parents want to send them to. I bet kids who are not white or Asian would absolutely thrive and succeed beyond our wildest dreams.”
“I saw this and am really, really pissed off. Fast and Furious was one of the most ill-conceived government run operations I have ever seen in my life. It happened under Obama’s watch and Eric Holder was up to his neck in it. The ATF decided to put guns and automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels with their brilliant thought processes thinking they could trace these guns back to the thugs and then prosecute the crimes. An ATF agent was killed by one of these guns.
Today I just read that the ATF agent that blew the whistle on these scumbag bureaucrats was fired from his job. This is one of the most obvious cases of retaliation against a man who went against our dear leader. The firing comes from the president who promised that he would have the most open and honest government of all time. The same administration who has prosecuted or fired more whistle blowers than any other administration. The same administration who holds meetings across the street from the White House so they do not have to disclose who they are talking to.

It is absolutely disgusting.

I know, this story is on the Blaze which Glenn Beck owns, but try as I might I cannot see this story on any of the main stream media outlets. This story is huge.

Next, a post about the high gas prices in California.
“What are they doing to us? The best question posed in this article about the soaring gas prices in California. I know, the president does not directly control the gas prices, but. But the president does set an agenda. So when he says he

wants to bankrupt coal companies you will wonder why it costs a fortune to heat your house this winter. While he is chasing windmills, solar panels and unicorns (to the tune of billions of dollars and then bankruptcy) then do not ask why normal energy prices go up. When he nixes plans for a new oil pipeline from Canada, and when the basically shuts down new drilling on any federal land, don’t ask why gas is going to be $5, $6 or even $8.00 a gallon; after all, that is what one person in his administration said he wanted to happen. When Obama’s administration puts in 9,000 new regulations for the EPA (basically writing laws without congress) don’t ask why we can’t build more oil refineries. He is bankrupting us through omission. When gas goes up the price of everything in your life will go up because we are a big country and all the wind from the wind farms and all the solar energy in the world will not move product across the United States. It takes gas and oil products to live and survive, even if our dear leader wishes it wasn’t so. So yes, Obama does effect the price of gas in this country and that is a reflection of the foolish policies this empty suit has put in place. So if you want to see $8.00 a gallon gas and the prices on everything you need to survive go through the roof, then by all means elect this fool, the empty suit.

So that is a recap of the last month in my posts on Facebook. Since no one seems to pay attention to my posts anymore I really have to blog more about it here.  If Obama gets elected America is done as a country, done as a beacon to the rest of the world, and done in general.  All the news people on the left will be wondering what the hell happened and they will not see how they were accomplices to the crimes against this country.  All the professors and deep thinkers on the left will be the first ones to be shot in the head, like they did with all the intellectuals in all of the other countries that went from Democracy to socialism and communism.
Trouble is coming and it will not be pretty.  All of my friends on Facebook who do not care about politics will be wondering what the hell they did wrong and they will be begging to go back to the way it was, but it will be too late.  Fuck Facebook.

Facebook and the way the world sees you

Even though I write a blog, Facebook is no place to live your life.

So we have friends of ours who are very nice, very good people but who have a fucked up home situation.  Who doesn’t, right?  Anyway this couple has their issues and a few close friends know about most of them, but they tend to post everything that happens in their life on Facebook.  I like Facebook and all but who the hell would want to post everything about themselves out there for the world to read>  It is crazy.

The Facebook saga started about six months ago.  This couple was going through a tough time.  She was sexting an old boyfriend and he was his usual indifferent self.  It all blew up at the airport in Atlanta when she was drunk on Chili’s margaritas and sitting in the chairs, waiting for our plane, and sexting Romeo like crazy.  Well hubby came up behind her, without her knowing and that is when the shit hit the fan.  The air was tense, the flight was tense and I behaved like a turtle and pretended I knew nothing about what was going on around me.  I find the turtle defence is much better than the crane defense.

When we got home they really blew up at one another and decided to split.  From that moment their angst was spilled out on the pages of Facebook.  They would post quotes that would make a normal man wretch, about love that is lost, cheating spouses, and every other cliché known to man.  It was as if each were in a battle to outdo each other in the romance department.  I wanted to go over to their house and slap them up and tell them to grow up, but I didn’t.  I did let the husband know that Facebook was maybe not the best venue to post a loves long gone rant.  He did not heed the advice.

Facebook and the swinging bachelor pad.

Well, they split, he moved into a swinging bachelor pad with another guy who is nearing 50, both have the goatees cooking (see previous post) and one has the great big gut of a man well-fed.  Each day we got to see more quotes, he must have some kind of search query that pulls up maudlin quotes, and each day he talked a bit about Match.com.

Soon, she was posting about her lost love, her dogs, everything that was going on in her life.  Her kids hated her for sexting and breaking up the family and her kids are some of the most fucked up people I have ever known.  Every member of this family spilled out all of the drama on Facebook.  I realize I blog but I don’t tell you when my wife is on the rag.  There are limits.

Our Facebook tale comes to an end.

The topper came for me this weekend.  He went to Mexico with their girls (14 to 21 maybe?)  He posted how proud he was, and she posted about this as well, that their 21 year old won a “shake your booty bikini contest” in Cabo.  WTF?  You are proud of that?  this girl is fucked up beyond all possible repair and you are posting this?  That poor girl thinks she is going to get by on her looks and God knows she is not getting by on her brains, and all they do is encourage her.  this is a girl who flunked out of college ($40,000 shot to hell), wrecked her car too many times to count (a new car that daddy bought her), lost the keys three or four times (about $300 to replace keys), had multiple speeding tickets, now drives without a license, and was beat up by her boyfriend and did not press charges.  She also spends money on her parent’s credit card and does not tell them and they are proud of this milestone.

I wonder what they will post when she hits bottom and is a crack whore?  It worries the hell out of me.  Keep it off of Facebook.
