The Supreme Court and Abortion

The Supreme Court and Abortion
This is not a new view or concept. However, it is novel and specific enough for many people to cause the dense-minded among them to blink and wonder, “Why didn’t I think about that?”

Remember that many old and popular sayings are a great part of American culture and tradition. One that the Constitution guarantees every individual is so common that probably nearly everyone has heard it at one time or another. It is this: The Constitution’s purpose, as pertains to each person, is to guarantee everyone “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Remember when…?

Remember when the Democrats kept up their screed about Trump’s income tax papers? They did it before he was elected and they still come out with it occasionally even these days. And when anyone tries to explain to them that he said he would not release them as long as they were under review by the IRS, the same left-leaning morons smirk and remark, “It proves he has something to hide.”

The Memo

Feb 2, 2018 — Bob Lunsford

The Memo
The FBI claims the Memo will be extremely damaging. But, to whom? To the organization or to the organization’s heads that acted criminally?

Also, the Media is in full spin mode. They hate Trump and this Memo is dynamite to them and the fuse is lit. I still want to know if it’s THE full Memo or something with names not revealed as if a new “version” was put out. It’s time for the Intelligence people to reveal if this is THE Memo or some variation of it that is either incomplete or modified to deceive the reader/s. Otherwise, there will be a confidence factor.

Apparently few people realize that there is a many-pronged goal of The Left where domination of society is concerned. Most think it’s merely to decimate the economy and social morality and, when it is in shambles, to take over and make it what the Left dreams it to be.

Let’s not forget that “The Left” is composed of Democrats and other Political Parties and groups that want to “change” America into what any good Socialist would want. This also includes some Republicans who purport to be good Republicans but when you peel back the façade, the layers of pretense, you find the basic mindset of a Democrat. These are usually called RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) but they carefully conceal their true intentions. In some ways, RINOs should be more dangerous and disgusting to honest people than the Democrats. Why? Because Democrats make no bones about being anti-anything that is right for America, while at the same time pretending it is good for America. The years before President Trump, dominated by Precedent Obama, tend to reveal that the kind of socialism wanted by the Organizer in Chief was far from what the framers wanted and dreamed for the country.

DC Swamp— Neck deep and still compromising

Jun 27, 2017 — Bob Lunsford

Democrats are all about Compromise. Yes, Compromise. But the compromise they want is for the Republicans to compromise and join them in some sort of Party Unification.

Democrats see the Democrat Party as the only party in town, the leaders, and no one else may apply.

Republicans are told they must compromise, must talk to the Democrats and “come together.” But true compromise is when two parties give way on some of their wants and desires and head toward middle ground. However, Republicans in Washington seem all too ready to do this and some seem eager to make it happen. But, what about Democrats? Do they compromise, do they work their way toward the Right or even the Center? Not in a New York minute…!

I received a message a few days ago and the sender said he did not like Obama but neither did he like a “bumbling fool.”

The Democrats and Media have done this to us: They only show what they consider bad about President Trump and little or nothing about the good he wants and has already accomplished. This is the Left’s current political strategy.

Democrats want to make Trump look like a “bumbling fool” and the Media love to present him this way. One of the things they don’t show is how too many “Republicans” also oppose him,  nor do they show how Trump has accomplished a lot of what he promised, regardless of too-little support from the “Republican” Congress. He is being fought every step of the way. Some of those who fight him pretend to be his friends.

More Fake News? Ya don’t say…!

Jun 9, 2017 — Bob Lunsford

There are many stories flying around these days that are utterly fantastic. Problem is, though, many of them are not true or at least not entirely true. We must be alert to them and be ready to take them apart to see what is true and what is not. However, many people are not adept at this and they are the ones that are targeted by the fake news stories.

The big story now is the ongoing discussion of Russia “meddling” in American politics. There is no proof of it happening in the past presidential election, though. This has been established by several organizational leaders who should know. However, their testimony and statements that there is no proof of Russia meddling is being dangled in the Media as if the proof is not there to ascertain what they all know to be true or, as they say, “Everyone knows it’s happening.”

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

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.
