2016 is a very important year, we have suffered for eight years under the progressive ideology of President Barack Obama.  We have seen the national debt double. We have watched as the work force participation rate drop from 66.2% down to 62.7%, a level not seen since 1978.  We have seen the average household income drop from $54,973 to $51,847. We have been forced to suffer through the passage of Obamacare, a system that has put our healthcare system on a collision course with collapse.  The Middle East is on fire, terrorists are on the march, and the United States creditability has all but been destroyed. 2008 to 2016 will be looked back on as a dark time in US history.

2016 will be a critical point in our nation’s history. That is the year that our children will look back at, and say “that is when the United States fell into oblivion,” or “that is when the United States stood tall, and began to climb out of ruin”.  That will only happen if the Republican Party puts forward a candidate that has the capability of uniting the country, a candidate that can inspire the people, and a candidate that defeat Hilary Clinton. The question is which candidate is capable of filling this role. Who should the GOP trust with such an important task. Some amongst the GOP Establishment, are pitching a man with a record of personal and political success, a man who is well known for his economic prowess.  A man who they claim can win the moderate vote. That man is none other than Mitt Romney.

Wait… I feel like we have discussed this before. I am almost certain that I have heard about Romney running for president before. Why is that. Oh that’s right, Romney ran in 2012 against President Obama. He ran on his record of economic success.  He ran against a President with absolutely no record to run on.  Unemployment was at 7.8%, Obamacare was opposed by the majority of the nation, 56% of the nation believed the country was on the wrong track, and not to mention the scandal in Benghazi. You know, the terrorist attack on September 11, the one where our embassy was attacked, and our ambassador killed. That attack that President Obama choose to ignore and go campaigning. The attack that President Obama lied to the American People about.  Don’t forget that the TEA Party had just lead the GOP to a massive victory in 2010, so momentum was against the President. Yet with all of this, Mitt Romney failed to win the election.

Think of everything that has happened from 2012 till now, think of everything President Obama has done. All of that could have been avoided if Mitt Romney had won the election. Obamacare could have been a thing of the past, had Mitt Romney won the election.  Taxes would not have gone up, had Romney won. Our nation could very well have been on the rebound, had Romney managed to win the election.  But he didn’t win, he lost.  Romney lost the 2012 election, primarily because he failed to inspire the conservative base to come out and vote.  Why then, are members of the Republican Party seriously considering supporting Mitt Romney in a third attempt at the presidency?

He could not beat a damaged President Obama running a record of failure and division, what makes anyone think that he will be able to run against the vial bigotry that will come from the progressives in the Hilary campaign? How will this vial, demonized, white man be able to defeat Hilary Clinton? They will start up the “war on women” campaign against him yet again, they will bring back the 47% comment, I could even see the thugs on the left attacking him for his faith.  How can anyone honestly think that Romney has a prayer of overcoming these mountains, against the woman who will be billed as “the first viable female candidate”. How will he beat Hilary, the woman who is owed the Presidency? How will he beat the memory of the 90’s?

The sad fact of the matter is that he can’t. In my honest opinion I think Romney would make a good President. He has a history of economic success. He has an interesting life story. He is an honest man who could return a sense of maturity and respect to the White House. The problem is, he cannot win.  He does not excite the Republican base, he does not excite conservatives (conservatives being the largest ideology in the country). The path to the White House runs through the conservative vote. If the progressives can convince the GOP to run a moderate, they can split off the conservatives, winning them the election. If the GOP runs a viable candidate, they win the conservatives, and thus election.

Romney did not win in 2008, he couldn’t defeat John McCain, Romney did not win in 2012, Romney will not win in 2016. Voting for Mitt Romney in the GOP Primary is voting for Hilary for President. If you are smart, you will heed this warning.  Or you could be an ignorant fool, and vote for a man who has proven that he cannot win the White House.

I don’t even know what to call this post, I am sick and tired of hearing about the stupid Patriots and their deflated footballs. It is a game, you know a thing that children play outside. Yes it was for the championship, yes there is a lot of money on the line, but it is still just a freaking game. I am tired of hearing about how they slipped these deflated balls past the officials. I am tired of hearing about how long it has been going on. I am tired of hearing about “who knew what when”.   The ignorant morons in the news media have given this “scandal” more coverage to date than they have the terrorist attack in Benghazi. You know September 11, 2012, our President left four Americans to die, lied to the world blaming the attack on a protest that they knew did not exist, and went off campaigning rather than worrying about our burning consulate.

I am sorry but they had Bill Nye the Science Guy come onto TV, and discuss how the Patriots claim that they heat the balls up by rubbing them did not ring true.  Really, that is news.  It amazes me how willfully ignorant people are.  Terrorist kill our ambassador, meh, the Patriots play with saggy balls, OH MY GOD CALL IN THE NATIONAL GUARD! If the media cared one tenth about the truth when it comes to President Obama’s failed presidency, as they do about some stupid game, our nation would not be suffering from half the problems that it is today.

I never knew that a school yard squabble could be called a “scandal”, Teacher teacher,  those kids cheated. The teacher then calls in the national news media.  It is ridiculous, and I am tired of hearing about.  People need to get their priorities straight.  It never fails, I will be listening to talk radio, and someone will say “how can you listen to that stuff, it is depressing”, I respond with I like to be informed, they typically respond with something along the lines of “I don’t care about politics, I can’t change anything, and it just doesn’t matter to me”.  This person is always the first to become outraged at these “scandals” coming from the NFL.  Yeah, they don’t care about politics, they can’t change anything, but by God they give a shit when it comes down to a sports team from a different town, in which they have no ownership, and no say in its operation.

Seriously, get over it, they cheated, they didn’t cheat, it doesn’t really mater.  Yemen has collapsed, ISIL is marching unchecked a crossed the middle east, and Radical Progressives now control Greece.  Yes Neo Nazi’s are now a major party in Greece, but the media is wasting time talking about some damn football game.  No wonder it was so easy for President Obama to get elected.  If he had dropped a pass in the Super Bowl he would have been run out of the country. Luckily for him, he only doubled the national debt, destroyed the healthcare industry, presided over the collapse of the western world, set race relations back decades, and played politics while our economy sank into oblivion.  None of those are important, and play no role in your life. Don’t worry, go back to bitching about Tom Brady, that is the real story.

I am sorry that I did not write about the importance of Martin Luther King Day. I sat down with every intention to, in fact, I wrote the title of this article Sunday. I wanted the post to be up early, a rare thing for this blog. However, once the title was written, I stared at the blinking line atop the blank page, and found myself unable to write. Words escaped me. A state that is most unusual to me.
I could have written something simple “Today we remember the legacy of a great man”, or something thought provoking “Today we stop to remember, remember the enduring legacy of a common man who achieved extraordinary things. A man born of humble origins, who guided by a dream, did what no one thought possible. A man whose undying vision for our world still shines today.” But none of these seemed right. For some reason I was unable to put pen to paper and publish these posts.
I now know why I was unable to bring myself to publish these words. I was, and remain, ashamed. I look at the man whom we were meant to honor, and could not bring myself to a part of the lie any longer. I am ashamed of what has happened to the legacy of Dr. King. What has become of his memory. The truth of the man has become muddied by the greed of man, and his memory has become a wrath summoned to bring down hatred and division across the nation.
With the events of the past year I cannot bring myself to claim that the legacy of Dr. King lives on. The events in Ferguson, where facts were forsaken for hatred, and peace cast aside for violence. A city burned, and the vultures swarmed. Men who once stood beside Dr. King incited bitter hatred in the hearts of thousands. How anyone can look at what happened in Ferguson and think that Dr. King’s memory is alive, is beyond me.
Corrupt men have bastardized his memory, stolen his image, to suit their own twisted political agendas. They make claims on his character, and cast out anyone who dares question them. His own niece was not allowed to speak at the anniversary event of his “I have a Dream” speech. His own blood turned away. The reason given, his own niece did not really know the man. The truth, she spoke out against the lies put out tainting the character and memory of her uncle.
Dr. King left us a great legacy, one that should continue to inspire us, and guide us into the future. He gave to us a vision for the future. A world united, where men were to be judge by the content of their character, not the color of his skin. A world where one’s deeds would define oneself, not their ethnicity, religion, or creed. He showed us, that great change does not have to come at the barrel of a gun, or the tip of a spear. Common people refusing to lower themselves to the level of barbarians, can send a powerful message. Tell me how the divisive rhetoric of men like Al Sharpton honors this memory, this legacy, this vision?
I hear the chanting in the streets, “black lives matter”, and I cannot help but weep. How is it possible that our nation could have fallen so far? How have the lessons of Dr. King been forgotten so quickly? To honor Dr. King, one has to forget this notion of “social justice”, and return for what Dr. King fought for, Equal Justice. Equal protection before the eyes of the law. Yes Black lives matter, so do Hispanic, Asian, American Indians, and White. A nation so divided by racial lines, cannot begin to honor the memory of Dr. King.
Ferguson does not disqualify us from honoring Dr. King. It is not the disease, but rather a symptom. The violence that rocked that city was not created in a vacuum. What disqualifies us from Honoring Dr. King are these opportunistic spineless, power hungry thugs who seek to exploit racial tensions. These once decent men who have been consumed by the lust for power, who have become dependent upon racial fears for their vary survival. If we had been building on the legacy of Dr. King, not corrupting it, Ferguson would not have happened. If we had not allowed multiculturalists to divide our nation, and prevent the formation of a unified culture, Ferguson would not have happened.
Dr. King dreamt of a world where we could all live together, in peace. We would not care what color your skin was, what your religion was, or were you came from. We would coexists in this world, living together as brothers. A common culture, that united the peoples of this nation. If we had built upon that, Ferguson could not have happened. We would have had our mutual culture to fall back on. A culture of equality, and justice, level heads would have prevailed. Until we stop allowing the United States to be defined as “whites, blacks, others”, I just do not believe we have the moral authority to celebrate the legacy of such a great man.
Dr. King was a great man, who showed to us the possibility of a truly United nation. He showed the world that men born of humble origins, through strength of conviction, dedication to a cause, and a belief in justice and equality could change the world. No one is born a victim; no one must accept their station in life. Anyone can achieve greatness. He proved that the color of your skin did not determine your place in this world. He showed to us that it was the content of your heart that defined who you could become. A message that I think everyone best start remembering.

Legitimately Michael Moore has to be one of, if not the, dumbest multicellular organisms to have ever walked this earth. Honest to God I am amazed that he is capable of getting up in the morning and figuring out how to put pants on. I have no idea how he is capable of forming sentences with his limited cogitative capabilities.
Every time Mr. Moore manages to string together a series of words into a sentence he makes of a fool out of himself. His recent tweet is no different.  Mr. Moore tweeted, “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.” How does one arrive at the conclusion that snipers are cowards, better yet, who thinks it is a bright idea to tick these people off?

Mr. Moore has a habit of rambling on about things that he knows absolutely nothing about. Snipers are anything but cowards. These are men who volunteer to go out into the battle field with just their spotter. No tanks, no Humvees, just you and the art of camouflage.  You are forced to make the concious decision to take individual lives, you have to see the target. You know who you shot, and you cannot deny it.  Michael Moore is one of the most ungrateful chumps on the plant.

Snipers are not Cowards Mr. Moore, you are just a blithering Idiot

So we are a couple days out from the President’s annual State of The Union speech.  President Obama has had problems in the past with the State of The Union Address. I mean the first one he delivered was nothing but a narcissistic pat on the back, he even forgot to tell us what the State of The Union actually was.  The question for this year is, what will President Obama actually say?

The way I see it, there are several options for how the State of the Union speech will go. The first would see President Obama outline steps that must be taken to address the anarchy that has descended upon the world. President Obama would outline the threat posed by ISIL and how America would react to this threat to liberty.  President Obama would address the need for our country reconcile with itself, for the nation to heal, to bury long standing hatreds and move forward.  The second option would see President Obama come out and brag about the dismal growth seen by the US economy, and use the speech as a chance to once again blame all the countries woes on Conservatives and TEA Party members.  The third option will have President Obama come out and as always show that the President is completely oblivious to the real world and the concerns of the nation.  He will pitch his “free college for those willing to work for it” plan, call for research on global warming, and demand action on illegal immigration. Ok hold on, I am sorry, I am not going to keep up the act anymore, President Obama will demand amnesty, any “comprehensive” reform from President Obama basically is just a call for amnesty.   Finally he will use the speech to threaten congress and say he is willing to work with them, where they can, but he is willing to go alone. We all know that when President Obama says he is willing to work with congress, what he really means is “congress will do as I tell them, or I will bastardize them for the next century.”  There is of course always the possibility that he goes for a combination of the three, but I doubt it.

The question now is which path will President Obama take. I am leaning towards the oblivious path personally. He does not have to worry about elections anymore, might as well show his hand.  It should be interesting, I always love to hear President Obama talk as though he is a Washington outsider, and how his big government progressive ideology is going to finally work.

Tuesday January 20th, we find out what President Obama thinks about the State of the Union.
