We have seen much follow-up in the news about the mistreatment of Dr. David Dao as he was forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight. It was also revealed that it was the result of some United Airline employees being sent to Louisville, KY for a work assignment the next day. This brings on many questions.

Why did United insist on sending them on this flight? Could they have not gone by bus and still arrive before their work assignment? Or, if it was a matter of preferring that they fly, I suspect that there were many options such as flying to Cincinnati or some other airfield that was within easy bus travel to Louisville. However, I suspect that this was a tradition or policy of the airline: Airline employees fly instead of using land transportation. If so, then one must wonder how often this happens. However, there were no doubt other options.

I like to refer to Obamacare as ObamaScare. This seems to reflect the true meaning of the term, especially for those who resist/rebel against the [forced] use of Obamacare. But there is more to this today than previously.

There is talk of repealing Obamacare. There is also talk of “repairing,” “Replacing,” and “Changing Obamacare” so, apparently, it will be more acceptable to the voter.

The Left has revealed their hypocrisy once again. They brag about being Liberal and deride the Right for being Conservative. Let’s see what those two terms mean and represent.

Liberal traditional meaning is Generous. Further defined in The Free Dictionary, it means:

  1. Favoring reform, open to new ideas, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; not bound by traditional thinking; broad-minded.
  2. Of, relating to, or characteristic of liberalism.
  3. Liberal Of, designating, or characteristic of a political party founded on or associated with principles of social and political liberalism, especially in Great Britain, Canada, and the United States.

One comment by President-elect Trump had a strong and vibrant ring with his followers and subsequent voters: Draining the Swamp in Washington. This is easier said than done as are many things in politics. When all things are considered, though, the push for it to happen immediately may not seem a distinct possibility. However, Term Limits is what really-really needs to be addressed to drain the DC swamp…

Now that we have a President Trump, we will see the Left as it really is, no holds barred, true to form, doing exactly what they always do. Regardless of how Hillary was predicted to be the winner and how Polls said that Trump was going to lose, the outcome was worth the trouble for those who were on the Trump Train. However, the next few months will not be easy times. We will see the Democrats perform precisely as they always have done: Be a barrier to real progress.

Donald Trump in his acceptance speech said that the fight has just begun and he is right. Using intentional ignorance as a virtue, as a badge of “honor” — going all out to prove that political stupidity goes “clean to the bone” — the Democrats will counter every move the Republicans and the new president will try to put in motion.

The Trump Dump

Oct 12, 2016 — Bob Lunsford

Regarding the sanctimonious religious types who dump on Trump for using that language 11 years ago — WHEN HE WAS A DEMOCRAT — they would have condemned out of pocket King David when he looked upon Bathsheba when she was bathing. However, King David’s greatest work for God was done after that. In fact, part of that later-in-life good work was that Solomon, son of David and Bathsheba, took over the kingship. Also, it is significant that Moses lived 120 years and the last 40 years were the time of his most productive work for God.

Hot Mic Moment

Oct 8, 2016 — Bob Lunsford

We are hearing the Media, all of it, going hysterical with glee promoting the “hot mic moment” that revealed what Donald Trump said eleven years ago. But this brings up a few questions.

For eleven years some Media person or persons sat on this “moment.” Why? Or, better yet, why release it now?

Hillary is stumbling along, in more ways than one, but right now with her campaign efforts. She dropped her full bomb-load, so to speak, at the first debate. People on the Right and Left were in heavy anticipation to see what was going to happen at the next debate, tomorrow. Suddenly, after eleven years, this “hot mic moment” comes along and it’s practically all the Media is talking about. Sure, Wikileaks has released some of the transcripts of her Wall Street speeches but the Hot Mic Moment is taking priority.

The Sequester, ETC.

Feb 28, 2013 — Bob Lunsford

What really matters?

Let’s talk a moment about this sequester thing that many do not fully understand or see the inherent importance, or lack of importance. Media talking heads are busy talking circles around it, though. It is now the fixation of the day, media-wise.

The Connecticut School Shooting and other acts of Gun Violence

Dec 22, 2012 — Bob Lunsford

We saw and heard ad infinitum the story about the Connecticut school shooting from the Media. Rush Limbaugh, however, stated on his radio program that every one of those stories during the first three days proved to be untrue.

The Biden-Ryan VP Debate was only the beginning of a Larger Debate

Oct 14, 2012 — Bob Lunsford

After the Joe Biden—Paul Ryan Vice-Presidential debate a few days ago, we saw yet more debate. Seems that everyone has his/her take on what everyone just saw and, as usual, there was much from the pundits telling everyone what really happened. Some pigeonholed Biden’s antics as mere buffoonery while others went as far as saying that Biden was “unhinged” and suffering from some kind of mental problem. Others said that this was what Biden was supposed to do to achieve the goal of solidifying the Democrat base in an attempt soften the effects of the previous debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama where one was left wondering just how easy it must have been for Romney to debate an empty chair.

The Party of Contradiction

Sep 20, 2012 — Bob Lunsford

Let’s go back a few years to Jimmy Carter and the take-down of the Shah of Iran (because 1200 were “tortured” in some prison…). The Shah was then replaced by Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini who was in exile in France for being a radical but who was still able to manage the overthrow of the Shah. Some inspired students in Iran, with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ushering one of the hostages, took over the American Embassy in a much greater moment in Time than scaling the walls of our Embassy in Cairo, and we find Americans kept prisoner in Iran until Carter was replaced by Ronald Reagan. The hostages were freed in a few hours of Ronald Reagan’s winning the presidential election because, apparently, those moronic students that dominated the news from Iran felt the tingle of fear run up their legs to imagine that Cowboy Reagan would correct their faulty judgment in the hostage-taking. They had no fear of Grinning Carter, his Desert Adventure, etc., but within hours of a President Reagan, they suddenly (out of kindness?) released the hostages.

The SEIU and other DNC Shenanigans

I am listening to the CSPAN broadcast of the Democrat Convention in Charlotte, NC. Well, as much as I can while trying to hold down my lunch.

The Constitution — take it or leave it…all of it

Aug 8, 2012 — Bob Lunsford

Those who question Obama’s birth/birthplace are called Birthers in an attempt to shut them up. However, where a prospective president or vice-president is born is important and is spelled out as such in the Constitution. It is indeed important and the arguments about where Obama was born and also where McCain was born were taken as very important and continue to be so.

Some of what the country needs

Jul 10, 2012 — Bob Lunsford

Let’s examine our political scenario. It is not a simple problem but we are in a pickle, as old-timers used to say. First, though, let’s see a few things we have with Obama.
