The “New Green “Raw” Deal”

Feb 18, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

The New Green Raw DealCan you believe that 70 House of Representative Democrats and 12 U.S. Senate Democrats have signed onto the proposal put forth by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, called the “New Green Deal”?  Not only is this proposal economically unfeasible, but it is also physically impractical, in other words, it is the “New Green “Raw” Deal”.

Most economists, not beholden to environmental groups and leftist foundations, and just plain practical people, look upon this proposal as an attack upon our free enterprise economic system as it was handed down to us by our founding fathers.  To implement the provisions of this nonsensical proposal, it would increase our debt by tens of trillions of dollars, and it would put many millions of workers out of a job.  This would be giant job killer through and through.

It’s Not a Dream, It’s a Nightmare

Feb 15, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

If you listen to many of the Democrats regarding the nonsensical “New Green Deal” sponsored by that ditsy new Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (a/k/a AOC), they claim that the provisions of this proposal are a “dream”, and is a start of a conversation about the theory of man-made climate change.  From what you’ve read or heard, do you think this proposal is a “dream” or do you think it is a “nightmare”?

For years, ever since that “global warming” guru, Al Gore, started proselytizing about the dangers of man-made climate change (a euphemism for global warming) with his discredited film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, the loony left has been clamoring for changes to our environmental laws to overcome the damage, they predict will do harm to our environment if we don’t enact these changes.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Feb 9, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (a/k/a AOC) and her Democrat flunkies, are the gifts to the Republicans that keeps on giving.

To show the naivete of those that embrace the “New Green Deal”, and that they are living on another universe, just look at what they are proposing.  How are you going to eliminate all fossil fuels and still have a livable society and still be able to survive?  This wacky proposal would eliminate air travel, make every building in the nation energy efficient (using renewable fuel), and even reduce bovine (cattle) flatulence (I kid you not, cow farts).  In addition, the proposal includes a provision to give a government “handout” to those unwilling to work.

Whatever Happened to Face to Face Conversation?

Jan 22, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

Whatever Happened to Face to Face Conversation?I might be out of touch with reality or just a plain old fogey, but have you noticed that the art of face-to-face conversation has taken a back seat to people who use their I-Phones and I-Pads etc. on an almost addictive basis?

Not only are youngsters being addicted to fingering their electronic devices incessantly, but I’ve noticed quite few older folks falling prey to this highly addictive activity.

Are Pelosi/Schumer “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?

Jan 13, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

Are Pelosi/Schumer “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?
Have you listened to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer lately, as they offer their reasons why a southern border wall is immoral and a waste of taxpayer money?  Do you think they could be tagged with the sobriquet of “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?  They offer no meaningful alternatives to stemming the flow of illegal immigration over our porous southern border, the flow of murderous drugs that is killing many of our, mostly young, citizens, and the flow of human trafficking.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of the term “Nebulous Namby Pambys” is as follows:  “Nebulous” - indistinct, vague, and hazy.  “Namby Pamby” - pathetically weak and indecisive.  No matter how you slice it, those terms fit these two feckless politicians, don’t you agree?

Ignominious Ingrates

Jan 8, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

Ignominious Ingrates
Do you think that Democrats who are against building a security border wall on the border with Mexico, could or should be called or classified as “ignominious ingrates”?  The definition of those terms by Merriam-Webster is as follows.  “Ignominious” – marked or characterized by disgrace or shame, despicable, and, “Ingrate” - an ungrateful person.  Do those definitions describe the actions of the anti-wall Democrats and their flunkies in the main stream media?

U.S. Constitution vs. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Jan 3, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

U.S. Constitution vs. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals
You might think that would be a ridiculous contest, but look around you and see what is going on, it might not be so ridiculous after all.

Ever since the election of Donald Trump, there has been a concerted effort to not only to try to undermine President Trump, but to undermine the U.S. Constitution itself.  Shutting down speakers on campus, rallying to ban or control guns, disseminating “fake news” as fact, and advancing the tactic of the “politics of personal destruction” are all part of the radical Alinsky agenda.

Are the Anti-Fascists the Real Fascists?

Are the Anti-Fascists the Real Fascists?
To listen to the radical left, you’d think that the Republicans and the Conservatives were the real “fascists” who are undermining our society, including the people who support that “Hitler Clone”, President Donald Trump.  Is that charge true or are those pushing that narrative the ones who are the real “fascists”?

What is Treason?

Dec 24, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

What is Treason?
The word “treason” has been thrown around willy-nilly recently in trying to tag President Trump with that label after he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland, and recently, Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, in the sentencing hearing in the General Flynn case, mentioned the word treason.  Is there any validity to that word being used against President Trump or General Flynn?  In the U.S. Constitution it states the following:  “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them (the U.S.A.) or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act or on confession in open court”.  In addition, the Merriam-Webster definition defines treason as:  “The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the State to which the offender owes allegiance”.

Should Our Educational Institutions be Charged With “Educational Malpractice”?

Dec 7, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Should Our Educational Institutions be Charged With Educational Malpractice
Our doctors and lawyers can be charged with “professional malpractice”, so why can’t or shouldn’t our schools and school administrators be also held liable for “educational malpractice”?

What a disgrace that the most prosperous and free country in the world, the U.S.A., has such a pitiful record of educational achievement with all those millions of dollars being spent on education in all 50 states.

Who are the Disciples of Chaos?

Who are the Disciples of Chaos?
What do we have to look forward to when the new Democrat majority controlled House of Representatives convenes in January, 2019?  Is anything positive being planned by the Democrats or will it be Trump bashing from day one through to the 2020 election?

Ah, for the good ole days of Democrat Tip O’Neill and Republican Newt Gingrich, who worked for bi-partisan agreements that had positive effects for our country, even though the president was of the opposing party.  Speaker O’Neill worked with President Reagan on the “Reagan tax cuts”, and Speaker Newt Gingrich worked with President Clinton on getting “welfare reform”.  Will this same bi-partisan cooperation come about during this new Congress?

The Merchants of Venom

Nov 23, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

The Merchants of Venom
Have you listened to the “news” broadcasts of CNN or MSNBC lately?  Almost 100% of the air time on those stations is devoted to anti-Trump and anti-Republican bashing, it’s like no other news is happening in our country and around the world.  You could, in all honesty, call those media outlets, “Merchants of Venom”.

Who Are the “Grievance Hustlers”?

Nov 19, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Who Are the Grievance Hustlers
Have you ever seen such moaning and groaning about what is happening in our country, especially now when our economy is booming and our GDP is hovering around 4%?

The recent cast of characters that have come to the forefront of the Democrat Party, are what you could honestly call - “grievance hustlers”.  No matter what the good news news is regarding the economy or our foreign policy, this group of “grievance hustlers” will totally ignore the positive to champion the negative.  It’s not only the Democrats but their willing co-conspirators in the main stream media.

When You Reward Something the More You Get of it!

Nov 17, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

When You Reward Something the More You Get of it
Well, well, how true that statement is especially when it refers to our treatment of illegal aliens.  When we give people who have “invaded” our country (even non-militarily) illegally, and we give them food, shelter, clothing, education, health care, sanctuary cities, and a drivers license, you know right away that our benevolence will attract others to do the same, it’s almost like a magnet.  In other words, when you reward something the more you get of it.

Liberals: “The Axis of Ignorance”

Oct 28, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Liberals: The Axis of IgnoranceHave your listened to the rhetoric of today’s liberal politicians running for office?  Can you discern anything positive they are presenting other than personal invective against President Trump,  the Republicans and giving out more “free stuff”?  How do those attacks on the president make the average American’s life better other than to create more animosity among both the Democrats and Republicans?

What do they propose that they claim would be beneficial to the citizens of our country?  As usual, they propose “free this” and “free that”, hoping that the average American voter will vote for them because they want something for nothing. Some might fall for this ploy, but I don’t think the vast majority of citizens want a “handout”, they really would like to have a “hand up” instead.

Do Feminists Practice Misandry?

Sep 20, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Do Feminists Practice Misandry?
Never heard of that word?  It is the antonym of “misogyny” which is defined as hatred of women.  “Misandry” is defined as the hatred of men.

Hawaii Senator, Mazie Hirono, recently has stated that men must step up in the era of “#Me Too” or just shut up.  That belligerent statement seems to be the prevailing opinion of many feminist groups who blame all men for all misbehavior against women.  Placing all men in the same boat as women abusers seems to be quite a misguided blanket statement.

Me, Myself, and I—Obama’s Favorite Words!

Sep 11, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Me, Myself, and I--Obama's Favorite Words!
Have you noticed that whenever Barack Hussein Obama speaks, he uses the words “me”, “myself”, and “I” almost exclusively in trying to get his talking points across during his scripted speeches?  Well, as you can imagine, many people point out that that is the trait of a narcissist or somebody totally in love with himself and to hell with anyone else.

Yes, you could say, that most politicians are narcissists, but not to the extent of comparing him to Obama.  If you notice, Trump uses the terms “we”, “us”, and “our” much more than Obama, who thinks everything revolves around him.

Close Only Counts in Horseshoes and Grenades

Aug 9, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

To listen to the Democrats and their lackeys in the media, the Democrats by being close in the various elections around the country signals an omen for their success in the coming November midterm elections. 

Is their optimism warranted or is it just wishful thinking?

Should Public Employee Unions Be Allowed to Elect Their Boss?

Jul 12, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Should Public Employee Unions Be Allowed to Elect Their Boss
Many people over the years, including former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, have said that public employee unions should not have the power, indirectly, to basically elect their bosses as they have been doing for many decades.

That concern seems to have been lessened by the Supreme Court’s decision in the Janus vs. AFSCME case.  The Supreme Court, by a 5 to 4 vote, ruled that public employee unions cannot force state and local government workers to pay union dues (called “Agency Fees”) who do not want to join the union.  The decision does not affect the existence of private employee unions.

Socialism:  The Philosophy of Failure

Jul 5, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Sir Winston Churchill on Socialism
Sir Winston Churchill once said the following:  “Socialism is philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”.  That prescient statement sort of sums up what is wrong with the prevailing opinion of many millennials and a goodly number of Democrats.
