I recall here a recent conversation where someone claimed to be a “centrist.” His explanation? Fifty percent right, fifty percent left (socialist). Political balance, he called it.

I’m not so sure that is a good mix, really. With so many people already on food stamps or other forms of social support, there is also the cost of administering those programs. So in reality, if fifty percent were on the left, or socialists, that would still require an additional percent, one not so minuscule I’m sure, to administrate that socialist state within the “centrist’s” idea of centrism.

What that means is that there would in fact be more than fifty percent involved in maintaining that centrist state and living within its ideals, benefiting from it. And what that then also means is that a smaller percentage than fifty percent would be paying to maintain that larger than fifty percent centrist/socialist state. Quite unfair.

Hold it. Don’t we have that already?

Yes. Yes, I think we do.

What I’ve noticed on Facebook is that many people spend large amounts of time debunking the false narrative of the conservative movement in the mainstream media. One follows the other in almost immediately in simultaneity. In that regard Facebook serves a valuable purpose to the true conservative, a foil against the mainstream media propaganda campaign of the left.

Dear President Trump and Elected who voted for an income tax break,

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the break on my income taxes. It has amounted to anywhere from $26 to $53, depending upon hours worked in a two-week period. It may not seem like much, but another $50 to $100 a month can be handy. It can be handy unless of course all of the retailers you shop at, grocers, what have you, simply raised their prices by an equivalent to what the tax break amounted to and absorbed any benefit from the tax break in the first place.

Somehow we are going to have to do something about that part of it.

Who said there is no such thing as inflation in America!

I think the real reason Facebook has suddenly been brought to the forefront of the internet privacy debate is because a much greater breach of the public’s trust has taken place by The US Senate and our elected. Your ISP is now selling your complete internet browsing history:

Guilty though they may be, Facebook is just the first fall guy, a distraction. There is a much greater abuse of the public’s privacy occurring.

In talking with women these days you get the impression that they believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that men voted for Donald Trump because of his behavior with women. It is natural then for women to conclude that men who voted for Trump behave towards women like Donald Trump does.

That belief is probably due to the contemporary media’s scandal-rag format, constantly looking for human foibles, usually of a sexual nature, to present before the public eye probably because that is what makes women turn to that channel in the first place or read that supermarket checkout scandal rag, improving ratings.

In other words, the belief that women have that all men who voted for Trump voted for him because they believe in treating women the way Trump supposedly does when there are many other obvious reasons to have voted for Trump is really a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” You believe that all men act like that, including President Trump, and so the media tells you all men act that way so you can believe what you thought all along. The media are telling you exactly what you want to hear.

Some things you should all know about President Trump’s relationship with the media:

1. The media have never had better material to report on than President Donald Trump. Why do you think the media spend so much time reporting upon his personal life? Because you love to watch it, ladies. You love it. You desire the sensationalism. It is no different than the soap operas you watch. While you say he infuriates you, you can not seem to turn it off. You soak it all up. You demonize him on social media while you eat it up and ask for more. What does that mean? You are fulfilling your own belief system. Men are all one way or another, whatever you think it is that day, that moment. Trump is proof, you tell yourselves.

2. Also, President Trump has done more for the media than President Obama and President Bush before him both, in sum total, by enabling the media to purchase AND sell all of your social media activity, all of your internet activity, anything you do using your cell phone, tablet, or any other electronic device and purchase that information wholesale! Trump didn’t do that alone. The Senate had to vote to allow your internet service provider to sell your browsing history to advertisers, but The President went along with it. (see links I’ve included at end of this observation)

Do you think the media want that to stop? It’s a free for all and you are what they are feasting upon.

The massive betrayal of the American public’s privacy may go down as the greatest transgression against Americans since the founding of the country, if the public realizes what is happening.

There is therefore a certain unspoken symbiosis occurring there to be sure.

So…fulfill your self-fulfilling prophecies all you want.

Ladies, American men voted for Trump because he promised to bring jobs back to America and to address a multitude of social issues and abuses of the welfare system. Don’t let the media with its propensity for scandal change that for you so easily. The costs are too high.

Most American men can understand what your are thinking ladies but you should stop believing men voted for Donald Trump because of his behavior towards women. There is too much at stake to come to that conclusion, the economy, jobs, I kind of like that tax break I’ve received so far and I hope there are more to come as promised, and the list goes on. But there are things that need to change, actions by our elected that need to be reversed of a much more significant nature than outing the President for being a heterosexual.

Next time ladies, change the channel…if you can, so we can all get on with it.

50 percent of all babies born last few years were born on Medicaid. The delivery itself is $10,000. Then there is the hospital stay and room fees.

2,245,347 were born in 2016, so half of that were born on Medicaid. Times $10,000 per birth, the cost without post-birth care is $112,267,360,000, or $112 Billion dollars just to birth those babies!

Then, chances are since they were born on Medicaid, the mother and child are receiving some form of government assistance. Add another minimum of $40,000 per mother and child annually.

Tell me the country isn’t socialist.

I support Trump in his efforts to impose trade tariffs on China.

The media has been constantly screaming “trade war” since Trump decided to impose tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum.

Were there a more proportionate trade deficit on those and most other items with our major trading partners. you could truthfully classify what Trump is doing as a “trade war.”

Instead, what we are seeing is a President who is finally attempting to rebuild the bombed out landscape of American industry. The “trade war,” so to speak, was over long ago.

The trade deficit of industrial production has long been in favor of our trading partners who have unfairly and strategically manipulated their currencies to undercut our American producer prices and infiltrate US markets.

Trading partners have focused their production on single industries to strategically undermine our own producers while forming alliances with other countries that have selected other single industries and one by one our own production has been significantly hindered, deconstructed, or eliminated in any number of viable, job creating manufacturing sectors, textiles (clothing), electronics, toys, you name it.

To top it all off our own Congress and Senate has provided massive tax cuts to move production overseas. What that means is not that our own producers build factories in foreign countries to find cheap labor, often they simply farm production out to foreign industries and brand the finished product as their own. Our own Congress has been significantly complicit in the deconstruction of American industry by providing such tax breaks that enable that industrial behavior.

American Corporations have also been just as complicit in the demise of the American industrial complex, often manufacturing substandard products to reap higher profits for short-term gains and forcing the American consumer to look elsewhere.

You could say American industry has not just been affected by foreign competition, our own elected and numerous, untold American corporations have acted like enemies within.

So I support Trump in his efforts to provide tariffs and import restrictions in certain circumstances. I think his choice of steel and aluminum tariffs is an excellent start.

It is not a trade war. It is reconstruction and the world knows it.

It would just be nice if our own media and our own elected officials would see it for what it is so we can all get on with it.
