Yep, Trump Was Right About Sweden

So, where does President Trump go to get an apology.
From The Telegraph/Sweden:
Swedish police on Tuesday were investigating a riot that broke out overnight in a predominantly immigrant suburb in Stockholm after officers arrested a suspect on drug charges.
The clashes started late Monday when a police car arrested a suspect and people started throwing stones at them in Rinkeby, north of Stockholm. Unidentified people, including some wearing masks, also set cars on fire and looted shops.
One officer was slightly injured when a rock hit his arm and one person was arrested for throwing rocks, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said Tuesday...
"This kind of situation doesn't happen that often but it is always regrettable when it happens," Bystrom said.
So, riots in immigrant neighborhoods do happen.
Imagine that. Trump was right.


From WFAA Dallas Tx: Life in prison.
Those were the words that Christopher Duntsch never wanted to hear.  And the words that his patients and their families desperately wanted to hear.The one-time neurosurgeon was sentenced by the 12-member jury to spend the remainder of his life behind bars Monday afternoon.“This was a voice for Kellie,” said Don Martin, whose wife bled to death after one of those botched surgeries in 2012.  
Did the doctor screw up? Probably. Does he deserves life in prison?  I don't think so because there was no evidence he screwed on purpose or with malice.  In addition, the patient did not die but was seriously and permentally disabled.  Life in prison should be for the worst of the worst and while the doctor was a horrible doctor, life in prison is too much.


Well, in Tempe, AZ, an anti-Trump rally quickly when only 25 people showed.
From AZ Central:  Community organizer Randy Perez had one goal when he set out Monday: March through the streets of Tempe with a few hundred demonstrators to protest President Donald Trump's claims of massive voter fraud in the November election.
Something went wrong along the way, however, and what was originally supposed to be a march of 150 to 200 people ended up fizzling out with an attendance of 20 to 25 people gathering at Arizona State University's Tempe campus. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/tempe/2017/02/20/tempe-anti-trump-rally-fizzles-out/98181744/
First, it was a dumb reason to protest. The election is over and who really cares what Trump said about voter fraud and who wants to protest it?
And they were by Arizona's largest university and if they couldn't find more protesters than that then they to give up.
Then the lady said she has been to at least 10 anti-Trump protests.  That's stalking or being obsessive.
And do you remember when conservatives said ex-president Obama was not their president?   The media said we were racist and un-American.  Now the media love these protesters.  More fake liberal news.

That's A Lot Of Snow

From the Lake Tahoe News:  The morning after a February storm had shut down the ski resort for two days, the Sun Valley ski patrol started yet another day of work to open the mountain to the public....
Sun Valley is not alone. California dominated headlines all of January with an incessant pounding, leaving Mammoth Mountain with 430 inches of snowfall so far. http://www.laketahoenews.net/2017/02/massive-snow-means-lots-work-ski-patrollers/
That's almost 36 feet of snow so far this year and they were supposed to get 5 more feet today.
I wonder if the snow will last on the mountain throughout the entire year?

Yes, President Trump Is Sane

The relatively new things the liberal media is running now is that President Trump is insane.  And they are serious about it.
Yes, he is a narcissist, I will give you that but so was ex-President Obama and Obama was probably even more of a narcissist.
So, to those liberals, here is Dr. Keith Ablow, from Fox New Says: Let me issue the standard disclaimer of psychiatrists who discuss the mental health of public figures: I have not personally examined President Trump.
Now, let me put to rest the concerns of Sen. Al Franken and political commentators John Oliver and Andrew Sullivan and anyone else who publicly or privately has questioned the president’s sanity:
Donald Trump is stone cold sane.
When a man acquires billions of dollars through complex real estate transactions, invests in many countries, goes on to phenomenal success in television and turns his name into a worldwide brand, it is very unlikely that he is mentally unstable.
When the same man obviously enjoys the love and respect of his children and his wife, who seem to rely on him for support and guidance, it is extraordinarily unlikely that he is mentally unstable.
When the same man walks into the political arena and deftly defeats 16 Republican opponents and then the Democratic heir-apparent to a two-term president’s administration, the odds of that man being mentally unstable become vanishingly thin. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/02/15/relax-trump-is-stone-cold-sane.html
Now, you certainly can argue that most liberals are crazy, to the point of being mentall ill, well, that's another story.

More Fake News

Headline and story from the Los Angles Times:
It's legal for an immigration agent to pretend to be a police officer outside someone's door. But should it be?
During a nationwide operation this month by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a team of ICE agents in Los Angeles approached the house of a man targeted for deportation.
“Good morning, police,” one agent announced in the pre-dawn darkness. 
A man opened the door moments later.
“Good morning, how you doing? I’m a police officer. We’re doing an investigation,” the agent said.
The exchange, captured on a video released publicly by ICE, seemed routine. But it has reignited long-simmering objections from immigrant rights attorneys and advocates, who say the scene illustrates unethical — and in some cases, illegal —  ruses ICE agents have used for years, portraying themselves as officers from local police departments to ensnare people or fool them into revealing the whereabouts of family members.
First, ICE agents are federal police officers, so they were correct to identify them as police officers.
And they were doing an investigation.
So what is the problem, other than with liberals who love their illegal alien criminals, no matter how nasty the illegals are?
And of course, they bring in President Trump but since this has been going for like forever, how come they didn't about this in December 2016, when ex-President Obama was in office.
And so folks, this is how fake news works.  Fake issue that has been going on forever and then bring Trump into it.
No wonder why the majority of us hate the media.

What An Evil Moron

Well, I guess you can expect the racist, evil and immoral Shaun King from the liberal rag, the NY Daily News to say something stupid on a daily basis, but this time, he really has gone ape shit crazy.
From racist Shaun King and fake News NY Daily News:  For many of us who have been harassed and attacked directly by Milo Yiannopoulos over the past few years, we are well aware of his depravity. He openly embraces his role as a bigot and a troll who targets and ridicules whoever crosses his path. I have seen people's personal lives destroyed by death threats and doxing after Milo sets his gaze upon them. All of this has been true, while Milo — who's permanently banned from Twitter — has primarily functioned in a creepy corner of American politics called the Alt-Right. The most visible spokesperson for that movement, he has operated outside of the mainstream for most of the past two years — until now....
CPAC’s invitation legitimized a dangerous and disturbing man. But as I think about their embrace of a man without morals, I realize that they have become a party without morals.
With Milo as a celebrated man in the party and Donald Trump as their leader, the Republican Party has officially become the party of perverts. I don't say that lightly. That's exactly what the party is at this point.
Just days away from his speech at CPAC, the world is now fully understanding just how despicable Milo is. In video interviews that were already widely available but recently gained new attention, Milo appears to openly defend child molestation and pedophilia. He's not joking. It wasn't satirical. In repeated interviews the man seemingly goes out of his way to defend pedophile priests and even brags, with all seriousness, how a priest taught him, when he was 13 or 14, to give good oral sex. He then goes on to defend the value of men in their 20s and 30s having sex with young boys. I can hardly stand to repeat the things he said. Again, though, he was not joking. He was dead serious. He admitted in the interviews that his stance on young boys having sex with grown men was likely "controversial."  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/king-trump-milo-turned-gop-party-perverts-article-1.2977403
First, to Shaun King, I have no pity on you.  You say Milo is a bigot and a troll.  Well, sir, you are also a bigot and troll who enjoys ruining people's lives as well.  You are an evil, racist immoral man who is also a crappy writer who may have plagiarized from other writers during his career.  Anything Milo did to you is probably a good thing.
As far as this Milo character, he does not represent the GOP in any way shape.  I have recently just heard of him. He acts like a reality star and does and says outrageous things.  He craves attention, good or bad and if doesn't get , he gets even more outrageous.
He claims he is a gay in-your-face Republican but his values and style are not what 99.999% of Republicans stand for.  So, for King to link loosely to connect Milo to the GOP and it's supporters is just as vile as Milo is.
I was going to look to see if there were liberal celebrities who are sex perverts who are the face of the Democrat party, but hell, they have Bill Clinton.
But we expect nothing less than that from King, the racist/bigot from the Daily News.

From Fox News:  The Day Without Immigrants protest shut down businesses nationwide last week, but it didn’t come without some consequences for a handful of workers who decided to take part in the demonstrations.
Dozens of workers said they lost their jobs after taking part in Thursday’s protest. The boycott was aimed squarely at President Trump's efforts to step up deportations, build a wall at the Mexican border and close the nation's doors to many travelers. It was unclear how many participated.
Twelve Latino employees from the I Don’t Care Bar and Grill in Tulsa, Okla. told Fox 23 News they were fired over text message because they didn’t show up for their shift and failed to let their employers know about their absence. The employees told the station they expected to be reprimanded, but not dismissed.  http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/20/dozens-workers-lose-their-jobs-for-participating-in-day-without-immigrants-protest.html
If you have a no come, no call, you ought to be fired.
And if you decide to choose to protest, you have to be willing to face the consequences if you miss work.
And good for the employers who decided that their business was more important then some stupid rally.

Happy President's Day

Yes, liberals, he is your president.
Give him respect please.

If You First Don't Succeed

From the Chicago Tribune: A draft of President Donald Trump's revised immigration ban targets the same seven countries listed in his original executive order and exempts travelers who already have a visa to travel to the U.S., even if they haven't used it yet.
A senior administration official said the order, which Trump revised after federal courts held up his original immigration and refugee ban, will target only those same seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.
The official said that green-card holders and dual citizens of the U.S. and any of those countries are exempt. The new draft also no longer directs authorities to single out — and reject — Syrian refugees when processing new visa applications.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-revised-travel-ban-trump-20170219-story.html
This, of course, will make the typical liberal's head explode and good for Trump.

Speaking of Songs

Here is 1 Irish song that was converted into hard rock and something by the Grateful Dead.  For me, it's pretty interesting.
Here are the 3 versions:
First, Metallica and the hard rock version:

And here is the Grateful Dead Version:
And the Irish version by the Dubliners:

For me, I like the Irish version.

Sorry, But I Love This Music

I am adopted and don't know my ancestry but I must have these Irish roots.

The musician is Phil Coulter, who has had a major impact in music, starting in the 1960's.
From Wiki:
Phil Coulter (born 19 February 1942)[1] is an Irish musician, songwriter and record producer. He was awarded the Gold Badge from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors in October 2009.[2][3]
Coulter has amassed 23 platinum discs, 39 gold discs, 52 silver discs, two Grand Prix Eurovision awards; five Ivor Novello Awards, which includes Songwriter of the Year; three American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers awards; a Grammy Nomination; a Meteor Award, a National Entertainment Award and a Rose d'or d'Antibes.[2] He is one of the biggest record sellers in his native land.[4]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Coulter


Yes, it is racing season.  In Florida, a car flew over a fence and hit 3 people who were injured.
Speaking of racing, NASCAR started it's season today with the NASCAR Clash at Daytona.
The Daytona 500 runs next week, with a bunch of new rules that are hard to understand.

Rain Rain Go Away

Here in northern Arizona, we have been getting a bunch of rain, but not as bad as California. 
With all the storms, in all of California, it should end their drought in the whole state but the Chicken Littles will still claim there is a drought.
And there is this...a fire truck rolling into a ditch, which looks like a toy falling over.

No Kidding

It's like a recurring nightmare, he, ex-president Obama, just won't go away.
From the NY Post:  An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.
Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall. http://nypost.com/2017/02/18/obama-linked-activists-have-a-training-manual-for-protesting-trump/
Obama is not going away, especially since he is now being held accountable for all of his bad policies and decisions.  Except for now, he will have his surrogates do the dirty work.

Friday, February 17, 2017


From the NY Post: An elite Upper East Side private school’s annual ice-skating party at Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park had to be canceled after parents refused to send their kids in protest of the president, sources said.
The Parents Association at The Dalton School sent a letter Thursday announcing the “Dalton on Ice” event was scrapped, saying “it would not be financially prudent” because of “significantly lower attendance.”
Dalton’s PA president, LaMae DeJongh, declined to comment — but sources said the low attendance was due to rampant anti-Trump sentiment at the elite prep school, which boasts alumni such as CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“I think it is completely insane,” said one Dalton parent who disagrees with the protest. “Like him or not, it feels like a strange place for New Yorkers to protest. And sad that kids now have no skating party.”
Trump renovated the rink in 1986 after the city fumbled the job for six years.
These idiot parents want to do hurt their kids so that the parents feel good about themselves.  The hell with the kids.
And the thing is that they won't even harm Trump in the slightest.

Good News For The GOP

He's back. President Obama is back in Chicago and he is doing the GOP a big favor.
From the Chicago Sun Times:Former President Barack Obama returned to Chicago for the first time as an ex-president on Wednesday, mapping plans for his Obama Center to be built in Jackson Park.
Obama had four meetings: One with community leaders on the South Side, at the Foundation’s Hyde Park offices, and three others relating to what will be a massive fundraising drive to raise hundreds of millions of dollars.
Taking $100,000,000's of dollars for himself means less money will be spent in 2018, the next federal election.
Welcome back sir.

Illegal Alien Not A Criminal?

Since when is it not a crime when you are not in the country Illegally?
From the NY Daily News:  A young father protected from deportation under former President Obama’s administration has been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents near Seattle since Friday morning.
Daniel Ramirez Medina, 23, came to the United States illegally as a 7-year-old and was granted protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — twice, according to a lawsuit lodged against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.....
Court documents state Medina has been in custody for more than 70 hours without probable cause.
The illegal alien is 23 years old and has had 5 years to make an attempt to become a legal citizen but apparently has not made an attempt. 
He should have been arrested and should be deported.
And yes, he has committed a crime.

Crab Fishing Boat Disaster

Could be a scene from "The Deadliest Catch"
From the Fairbanks Daily Miner:  The search has been called off for the six veteran fishermen aboard a crabbing boat missing in the icy, turbulent Bering Sea.
The fishing vessel Destination went missing early Saturday after an emergency signal from a radio beacon registered to the ship. The signal originated from 2 miles off St. George, an island about 650 miles west of Kodiak Island.
The Coast Guard released a statement Monday night saying the search has been suspended.
"We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the six crewmembers during this extremely difficult time," said Rear Adm. Michael McAllister, commander of the Coast Guard 17th District. "The decision to suspend a search is always difficult and is made with great care and consideration."  
Crabtree fishing is so dangerous as seen on Deadliest Catch. 
RIP to the fishermen and prayers to their families.

GOP Eats It's Young Again

Another difference between the GOP and Democrats.
National Security Mike Flynn resigns under pressure for simply making a phone call.
Why, because he lied to Vice President Mike Pence.
Meanwhile, Democrats under former president Obama and including Obama himself lied to the public constantly with absolutely no consequences whatsoever.
Stupid GOP, they don't have the balls to play the political game.

Another Reason Why Kmart Is A Failing Company

I happen to work at Kmart on a part time basis and so I know a little bit about Kmart.
First, the company, which is also part of Sears is run by a bunch of idiots who pass their idiocy down the chain, to the local stores who also do some very stupid things.  Kmart is a failing business and will probably go out of business in the year or so.
And here is another reason why Sears/Kmart is a failing company. 
From the Chicago Tribune: The list of companies dropping products that carry the Trump name grew this weekend, with two major U.S. retailers announcing that they're no longer selling Trump Home items online.
Reuters reported Saturday that Sears Holdings and subsidiary Kmart will discontinue online sales of 31 items from the Trump Home collection, which includes lines of living room and bedroom furniture, lamps and chandeliers.
Brian Hanover, a spokesman for Illinois-based Sears Holdings, said the decision was made "amid a streamlining effort," Reuters reported.
"As part of the company's initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items," Hanover said, adding that neither Sears nor Kmart carry Trump Home products in their retail stores.
Kmart/Sears is hemorrhaging money so in turn, they decide to cut a line they probably make a lot money from.


From the Las Vegas Sun:
Two people were killed when a Lamborghini spun off the track and erupted into flames this afternoon at SpeedVegas.
A client of SpeedVegas, a man in his mid-30s, was driving the white Lamborghini with an instructor in the passenger seat, police said. The car drove off the track and spun into a concrete barrier lined with car tires and immediately burst into flames.
Both the driver and the instructor were killed on impact, according to police.
The instructor was a man in his late-50s to early 60s that police said was a longtime professional driver at the course.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration will lead the investigation because it happened on private property, police said.
“Today, an accident on the track resulted in the deaths of a SpeedVegas employee and a customer,” Aaron Fessler, co-founder and chief executive officer of SpeedVegas, said in a statement. “We are fully cooperating with investigators at this time. We are devastated by this tragic event and extend our heartfelt sympathy to the families and to our SpeedVegas team members who have lost a beloved colleague.”   https://lasvegassun.com/news/2017/feb/12/client-instructor-die-in-lamborghini-crash-at-raci/
There are a lot of companies like Speed Las Vegas, especially for NASCAR type cars.  While I am probably wrong, this is the first time I have heard of someone being killed in this business.
But it seems like a fancy car drive car wanna be couldn't handle the car and the instructor tried to push the driver to go faster so he could get a bigger tip.

It's about time that President Trump is finally getting his cabinet filled. Tonight, the Health and Human Services (Tom Price) and Attorney General  (Jeff Sessions) were barely voted in as the Democrats continued their hissy fits.
Now, maybe Sessions can initiate some good old fashion pay back and investigate some Democrats, like, maybe start with Hillary Clinton?

Tuesday, February 7, 2017


It took the vice president to cast the deciding vote but Betsy Devos was confirmed to be the next Education Secretary.
From Fox News:  School choice advocate Betsy DeVos was narrowly confirmed Tuesday as the next education secretary despite deep opposition from teachers unions and other groups, after Vice President Pence intervened to cast a historic tie-breaking vote.
Pence’s vote marked the first time in American history a vice president has broken a tie on a Cabinet nominee’s Senate confirmation – and the first tie-breaking vote by a VP since 2008. Pence was compelled to cast the vote after two Republican senators – Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska – joined all 48 Senate Democrats in opposing DeVos. 
It's great that that DeVos is for School Choice and let's hope she will do something about No Child Left Behind.
Another great decision by President Trump.

And Then There Are These Fools

2 1/2 weeks ago, I needed to get my birth certificate from the Wisconsin Vitaly Records and I ordered a total of 4 certificates.
So, I sent in my application and a money order for $29, which is the fee for 4 applications.
And they never sent the certificates.
Why you ask?
Because I apparently for got to put my mom's maiden name on the application.
Even though they have my phone number.
So, these fools were going to sit on my applicant's and not tell me there was a problem or until I called them to find what was going on.

Kudos To A......Federal Government Agency?

The Federal government is well known to give horrible customer service.
However, the Social Security Agency did a fantastic job in dealing with the passing of my Wife, Cathy.
Cathy passed away on December 29 of 2016.
I didn't know that Cathy, who lived with a life long disability, was eligible for a death benefit of $255.
Someone told me to check it out and I did and  within 2 weeks I had a government Social Security check for Cathy's death.
Now, as a conservative, I don't care for government hand outs but this check will help with utilities and groceries.
So, for a government to act so quickly, the Social Security Administration deserve credit for acting in the best interest of a client.
Thank you SSA.

All About Nothing

My blog posts haven't been so plentiful because there really hasn't been a need for them.
Because Democrats act like Republicans and Republicans act like Democrats.
Democrats use Senate rules to their advantage, just like the Republicans did during the Obama administration.
And Democrats use the courts to get what they want.  Just like the Republicans did.
And the cable news networks make each piece of news from Trump and a few legislators like this 1941 and the beginning of World War 2.
And life goes on.

Super Bowl Half Time Show

As an older middle age male, you would think us middle aged guys would give Lady Gaga Super Bowl half time show at least a B.
Not me.
I knew only knew 1 Gaga song plus the 2-3 patriotic songs.
Every other song was boring to me.
And Gaga was ugly
So, I give the show a D-, and for me, that is being generous.
And the rest of us? What do you give her?
But heck, since she probably paid the NFL to be the half time entertainment, we got our money's worth.
Can't wait till next year's Super Bowl.

The Sound You Hear Now.....

P on the Atlanta Falcons and losing to the New England Patriots 34-28 this evening.
Atlanta was beating the Patriots 21-3 at half time and 28-3 in the 3rd quarter.
But they choked and lost by 6 points. But hey, it's only money...try telling that to the guy
who bet $1,000,000 on Atlanta straight up.

Trump Blamed For Prison Riot

That President Trump sure is one powerful dude and really gets around.
From Delawareonline.com:  Through a hostage, the prisoners called it a rebellion...
Prisoners funneled a second call to The News Journal through a woman who said her son was in Vaughn Correctional and was being held hostage.
We’re trying to explain the reasons is for doing what we’re doing. Donald Trump. Everything that he did. All the things that he’s doing now. We know that the institution is going to change for the worse. We know the institution is going to change for the worse. We got demands that you need to pay attention to, that you need to listen to and you need to let them know," the caller told The News Journal. "Education, we want education first and foremost. We want a rehabilitation program that works for everybody. We want the money to be allocated so we can know exactly what is going on in the prison, the budget." http://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/crime/2017/02/01/delaware-prison-lockdown-vaughn/97342188/
Prayers to the hostages and their families.  Also prayers for the hostage negotiators and SWAT TEAMS as they try to release all the hostages.

Good: Yucca Mountain May Be Revied

From LVRJ: The Nevada commission charged with overseeing nuclear waste issues on Tuesday warned that it expects Congress to seek funding to revive the shuttered Yucca Mountain repository project this year.
The warning is contained in a report to Gov. Brian Sandoval and the state Legislature from the Nuclear Projects Commission. The report states it is not yet clear whether the Trump administration would support reviving the shuttered program to permanently store 77,000 tons of high-level radioactive waste — primarily spent fuel from commercial power reactors — in a maze of tunnels inside the Nye County mountain. http://m.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/nevada/congress-likely-seek-funding-yucca-mountain-nuclear-waste
When Senile/Corrupt/Unethical/Liar Harry Reid/Ex-president Obama killed the Yucca Mountain project, putting thousands of people out of work, I said at the time it was a horrible idea for several reasons.  Among the reasons was that it was an economic boom for the State of Nevada, Nevada already stored nuclear waste, it is safe and it is safer than storing nuclear fuel at the nuclear power plants.
So, with a new president and a GOP Congress, maybe Yucca may be restarted.

Kmart/Sears About To Go Belly Up

Once upon a time Kmart/Sears used to be a big box store chain located in the United States, perhaps bigger than Wal-Mart at one time.
Now, they are about to go out of business.
From News Talk Florida: Sears is using everything in its power to keep the company from drowning, but in the latest turn of events the retailer laid off an unspecified number of full-time Kmart employees.
According to Business Insider, the layoffs were confirmed, noting that the employees let go were full-time managers or department heads in charge of driving, backrooms and customer-facing services at Kmart stores across the country.
Business Insider said a spokesman for the company declined to say how many people were affected by the cuts, but that not all Kmart stores were affected or witness employees being laid off.
“Eliminating positions is never an easy decision to make, and we don’t take it lightly as we recognize the valuable contributions affected associates make to the company,” spokesman Howard Riefs said to Business Insider.
According to two anonymous Kmart workers, Business Insider said that nearly 800 stores were affected by the cuts. On message boards, employees of the retailer say the stores now have “skeletal” staff and that the company has executed the layoffs as a way to keep the stores simple. https://www.newstalkflorida.com/featured/kmart-lays-off-full-time-employees/
I work part time at Kmart and we are in desperate times. Just our store alone, our sales are down over $2,000,000 from 2 years ago.
Part of the reason is that Kmart and Sears rarely advertise.  Another reason is that we are trying to get the younger customers ignoring everyone else, especially older customers who would rather shop at kmart than Wal-Mart.   It seems Kmart/Sears main selling point is "We are not Wal-Mart ".
I would not be shocked if Kmart/Sears files for bankruptcy within the year.

It's Been 10 Days...

10 days ago, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
The world has not ended.
The sun still rises in the East and sets in the West.
Ex-president Obama still can't keep his mouth shut.
Trump does what he has promised.
The Democrats and liberals still hate Trump.
President Trump still is much smarter than any liberal or Democrat.
The GOP Congress are still dumb as rocks. (And that is insulting to rocks...sorry rocks).
In other words, business as usual.

A Confession

I don't have a lot of vices in life because I live the boring life.
One vice I have is watching these shows that sell videos of old TV shows.
Lately I have been watching clips from Hee Haw, Laugh In, Johnny Carson and others.
Maybe it's a sign that the current TV shows pretty much sucks.  The only prime time TV shows I watch are Blue Bloods and Chicago Fire.
So, there is my confession of the night.


From Madison.com: Gwendolyn Gillen, a Wisconsin artist whose bronze sculpture of Mary Tyler Moore tossing her hat became a downtown Minneapolis landmark, has died. She was 76.
Gillen’s daughter, Alessandra Gillen, said her mother died Friday in hospice care at Madison Heights Senior Community in Madison, where she had lived since 2013. Her death came just two days after Moore died at the age of 80. 
Just watch out Ed Asner and Betty White.

Trump Bad For Talk Radio?

Most conservative talk radio hosts were thrilled when President Trump was elected president of the U.S..
Now that he is in office, they may have 2nd thoughts.
No, they are not mad at Trump but on the contrary, it seems like they are struggling.
I've been listening to Rush, Hannity, Levin and others.  Hannity and Rush are basically rah rah guys for Trump and Levin is almost a rah rah guy but also tries to show his independence by ripping on Trump on the tariff issue.   Yawn.
Conservative talk radio needs a bogey man... liberals and they are in short supply since Democrats and liberals are going the way of the dodo bird.  If they don't have Democrats to kick around then they have to rip on Republicans, the home team.  And if they rip on Trump and the Republicans, they risk on ticking off their audience and then their audience starts listening to classic rock.
Ex-president Obama was great for talking radio because he was their bogey man. Trump is the anti-bogey man and talk radio will suffer.

Lily Tomlin Calls Obama A Nazi

I always thought most actors and actresses are pretty much the dumbest people on Earth.
Lily Tomlin makes my point.
From Variety: Speaking to reporters backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday, actress Lily Tomlinlikened the political tactics of Donald Trump to those employed in Nazi Germany....Any activist should really talk about how to mount some kind of legislation against whatever it is that they are opposed to,” Tomlin said when asked about the role that celebrities play when advocating for or against social and political issues. “You’ve got to change the laws, just like he’s changing, Trump is changing the laws now. He’s trying to change the laws. You know, my mind is going too fast. I wanna think about the fact that, you know, I don’t wanna make this comparison, I’m not making it any way, but the Nazis, they changed the laws if they didn’t agree with them. They just changed them and they could do whatever they wanted.”
Tomlin added, “We need to be vigilant and we need to agree when he may have a good idea or she may have a good idea, and we should be resistant when they don’t. Oh my gosh, I feel like I’m talking to someplace in Germany many decades ago.”    http://variety.com/2017/tv/awards/lily-tomlin-donald-trump-nazis-nazi-germany-1201972871/  
Since ex-president Obama also signed executive orders, therefore Obama is also a Nazi according to brain dead Tomlin.
Why do people even care what celebrities even think?

Don't Blame Trump

So, the media is up in arms about President Trump's order to restrict people from countries that support terrorists and terrorist groups.
Right after Trump signed the order, the paid goon protesters were doing their thing.
Ambulance chasing lawyers were searching for the closest TV camera.
And the media and liberals members of the media went searching for those who were pretending to be victims.
And the 1 thing all these clowns had in common...their hatred of Trump.
And they never thought of blaming ex-president Obama for Trump's executive order.
Obama allowed so many refugees from almost every country in the world with minimal vetting.
Obama/Clinton wanted to increase the number of refugees.
Obama discriminated against  mideast Christians, when Obama was in charge by basically ignoring their requests for asylum over his term as president.
Obama's Mideast policies have been so horrible that President Trump had to go in and clean up Obamas mess.
A big thank you to Trump fire starting to clean Obama's messes.

Terrorism In muslim Mosque

Tonight, at least 5 people were murdered in a mosque in Quebec City in Canada.
Newspapers in Quebec have implied that this is a hate crime against the mosque.
Of course, muslims kill other muslims if they are not the right kind of muslim.
And here I thought Canada was exempt from terrorism because they are filled compassionate liberals.
This will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Update: Seems there is a strong possibility that muslims carried out this attack.  Apparently, the gunmen yelled Allah Akbar while they murdering their fellow muslims

Oh, Grow Up Chucky

From the Washington Examiner:  Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer held back tears Sunday while denouncingPresident Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees.
"This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American," the Democratic senator from New York said through tears. "It was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion across the country." http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/schumer-tears-up-as-he-calls-trumps-immigration-ban-mean-spirited/article/2613299#.WI4qJFGaZck.twitter
I don't like calling someone special snowflake but my goodness, Chuck you are the absolute definition of a snowflake. 

Trump: The Inventor

8 days into the Trump presidency, the media, bloggers, liberal talk show hosts (all 3 of them) and liberals in general are all in a twitter because the Trump administration has different facts than they do.
These liberals accuse Trump of being a liar on the same terms of Adolph Hitler.
These liberals, with a straight face, imply this is the first time a politician has lied and that Trump has invented the term "lie" and "lie".
Never mind ex-president Obama lied the moment he opened his eyes in the morning to the time he goes to bed.
For liberals, Trump is the first politician tonlie.
So, to these liberals, President Trump has invented the lie.

Bye Bye Criminals: Thank You President Trump

From Jsonline:
Federal immigration agents said Friday they arrested 16 Mexican nationals in the Milwaukee area with criminal records.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said all of the people arrested were living in the United States illegally and were taken into custody this week as part of an "enforcement surge" to find and deport aliens that had criminal violations in U.S.
Those arrested include a 50-year-old man who had twice been deported to Mexico, according to ICE officials. He had prior felony convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, battery of a police officer and grand theft of an automobile. He had previously been deported to Mexico in 1997 and 2003. He was arrested in Waukesha on Wednesday.
Two of the 16 persons have outstanding deportation orders, ICE said.

I'm pretty sure that these arrests are the directions result of Trump being elected.

RIP Mary Tyler Moore

Another great celebrity has passed on, Mary Tyler Moore.
I would watch her show on Saturday nights, along with other shows she created.  Not only was she a great actress but also an entrepreneur.
My favorite moment?
Chuckles the clown dies and they are at the funeral:

Miss Obama?

No, not I.
President Trump is more than what I had expected. 
He will be a great president.

Good Part 1

From the Washington Post:
President Trump is planning to sign executive orders on Wednesday enabling construction of his proposed border wall, and targeting cities where local leaders refuse to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation, part of a multi-day rollout of his long-promised crackdown on illegal immigration, officials familiar with the decision said Tuesday.
“Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow,” Trump wrote on Twitter late Tuesday. “Among many other things, we will build the wall!”
The moves represent Trump’s first effort to deliver on perhaps the signature issue that drove his presidential campaign: his belief that illegal immigration is out of control and threatening the country’s safety and security.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/president-trump-is-planning-to-sign-executive-orders-on-immigration-this-week/2017/01/24/aba22b7a-e287-11e6-a453-19ec4b3d09ba_story.html?utm_term=.2b3ade96f585
This why we elected President Trump.
And it will be so fun to watch liberal heads explode.

Good! Part 2

From the Chicago Tribune: President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night about Chicago’s violence, saying he will “send in the Feds!” if the city “doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on.”
Trump’s tweet refers back to a line in his inaugural address Friday about “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”
The tweet cited numbers — “228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016)” -- that come from Tribune data used in a news story Monday about violence in the city so far this year. As of Tuesday evening, there had been at least 247 people shot in Chicago, with at least 44 people killed, according to Tribune data.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-trump-chicago-carnage-tweet-20170124-story.html#nt=oft02a-1la1
It's one thing is the gang bangers want to take each other out.  That's up to them.
but when these murderous thugs take out innocents like babies, toddlers, pre-teens and the older people of the neighborhood, who is looking out for them?
Ex-President Obama who is partying it up in Palm Springs?
Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the other liberals of Chicago?
Oh, heck no.
It takes a conservative President to look out for these folks.

Way To Go, Marquette Warriors

Image result for image marquette warriors
From Jsonline: Marquette has played men's basketball for more than 100 years. There's been plenty of memorable games and historic moments in that time, but never before had Marquette knocked off the top-ranked team in the Associated Press top 25 during a regular-season game.
That changed Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
After trailing by as many as 17 points and staying behind by double digits for most of the second half, the Golden Eagles finished with a 19-4 run to claim a 74-72 victory over Villanova, the No. 1 team in the AP poll and No. 2 in the USA Today coaches poll.  http://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/college/marquette/2017/01/24/mu-74-villanova-72-golden-eagles-stun-aps-no-1/96989750/
I grew up with the Marquette Warriors (no, they are no the Golden Eagles to me) because my dad worked with Al McGuire and Hank Raymonds in the public relations dept., way back when.
So I grew up with them but I never realized before today, they never beat a #1 team before.

Ih Honor Of The Women's March This Past Saturday

The New York Daily News is a liberal rag that also happens to be racist, anti-Semite and now we can add anti women.
This story ran in December but it shows the liberal hypocrisy.
The story is about a ring girl at a MMA fight who was accidently punched by a fighter after he lost.
And the video the rag shows pretty much glorifies violence against women as the punch is shown over and over and over for about 30 seconds.
From the anti-woman NY Daily News: Andrew Whitney’s hardest punch came after the bell rang.
The MMA fighter clocked a ring girl after a recent fight when, in an act of frustration over the outcome, he swung his fist and caught the young lady right on the jaw.
Whitney fought Farkhad Sharipov at Titan FC 42 in Florida and lost the bout on decision. When the outcome was announced, Whitney, a Missouri native, tore his hand away from the referee and swung, seemingly unaware of the proximity of the woman standing over his left shoulder.  http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/more-sports/mma-fighter-punches-ring-card-girl-loss-video-article-1.2903041
And the video:

Apparently, liberal women are ok with this, but President Donald Trump?  Oh, hell no!!
