Psalm 113 begins with a Hallelujah and ends with a Hallelujah!  The polls tell us that most Americans are in that kind of mood.

Vent pages are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc, which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name? Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU! GET IT WHILE IT'S HOT!

To create as many problems for Trump As possible, Obama is punishing the Russian people with sanctions. He is expelling 45 diplomats. He is counting on boxing Trump in. Anything Trump now does will make Trump look like a Russian pawn. Sleezy Chicago politician.

Obama is burning down everything he can before Trump is sworn in.

I don't put mass amnesty or gun control out of his reach until January 20th.

If Soros did collapse the dollar Trump would declare him a terrorist and send a drone misleading up his ass.

Oh the irony! My facebook feed has articles about members of the Rockettes and Mormon Tabernacle Choir complaining about performing at Trump's inauguration. I see liberals posting their support for these people, normally with some statement like, "No one should be compelled to participate in an event they disagree with" (actually, that's an almost exact quote from one liberal). Oh, really? No one should be compelled to participate in an event they disagree with? What about Christians who don't want to participate in a gay wedding? Does it work both ways?

We no longer are fighting communism, but now we face nations wanting hegemony over their area of the world--Russia, China, Allahs territory. Should we not be consolidating the Americas which would mean we would have to push out the Chinese from South Bmerica if we are to have hegemony in our sphere Because we are not fighting communism from Russia or China I am not sure why we are taking about war with these countries. Why must we try to fight over ther hegemony in their spheres of the world? Why does McCain and Graham want us mad at Russia?

When poisonous Hollywood people do what Meryl Street did bashing Trump last night, as a supporter of Trump, I take it personally.

President-elect Trump has already done the impossible. He has liberals praying and he has liberals calling for armed insurrection. They've spent decades trying to be free of religion and decades infringing on the 2nd. A complete turn-around and he's not even sworn in yet.

I recently wrote that Trump's problems will come from his own party. I was not expecting it would be from those he defeated. But it has McCain leaked the sick memo, Rubio is threatening to sink Tillerson. Rand Paul is threatening to block action on Obama care. What a sorry bunch of losers.

Sarkazein said...

McCain could not just sit on the info while knowing it could be used by the Russians against a sitting US President... if true. He didn't leak (no pun intended) it to the press, he gave it to the FBI. He should have confronted Trump with it just as I did with info I had during the first W campaign. I presented it to them and let them decide what to do with it. I don't know what else McCain could have done here other than given it to the Trump campaign where there was no love-loss.
If all this Russian involvement in the email hacks and the latest Trump story is completely false, the Russians are having a huge laugh at us right now. They are laughing because they can see America coming apart at the seems without them having to lift a finger.

Sarkazein said...

I am not quite ready for the Republican Congress to be a rubber stamp for the President. I don't want them clapping until Trump rings the buzzer to stop.

Sarkazein said...

It might have been one of Trump's challengers in the primary who called for the opposition research. That person did not use the info. The Democrats took over that opposition research and they didn't use it.
I said this would be the strangest transition ever.

Blogger said...

Lindsey Graham is pushing through some serious sanctions on Putin before Trump can even get his feet underneath him. It reminds me of the disastrous Bay of Pigs that poor Jack Kennedy discovered he had inherited before he could get his feet underneath him. Doing this to a new president is really dirty.

Blogger said...

Sark it isn't about rubber stamping. Republicans have about one year to deliver on what voted them in. If they do they will be around a long time. If they don't they will be abandoned in 2018. We don't need immature sore losers and wannabe presidential candidates screwing things up. These little dogs trying to show they are not afraid to bark at the big dog can wait and show off after 2018. Right now it's every shoulder to the wheel. Hang together or we all hang separately.

Blogger said...

I have read a number of comments on other blogs today. There is a lot of rage out there againt Rubio,every thing from reminding him he won on Trumps coat tails to calling him a little turd. Drudge called McCain demented over his actions.

As we know, ahead of Trump's presidency, companies are already backing off, and will now build in America. Another story, but one that has not received any press is that anticipating Trumps foreign policy, the attendees of the Paris conference backed off of their plans to screw Israel. Only those who know their Bible understand how important that is for the entire planet--something like avoiding a close call of a giant asteroid striking the earth.

Well, well, well. The inability to DO SOMETHING by liberal Republicans, coupled with the usual mission oriented drumbeat of the liberal agenda marches on to take your rights away in Watauga County. For the past decade, I first begged the Republican County Commissioners to bolster hunting, trapping, and shooting in Watauga County by forming a resolution to the NC General Assembly to create a right to hunt, fish, and trap in NC. In other words, a pre-emption law that would make it difficult for the sea saw of politics to alter our God given, inalienable rights. After begging didn't work, I ridiculed the Republican morons to DO SOMETHING. That didn't work either as the Republican County Commission had much in common with liberal Democrats. And what exactly did they accomplish? Apart from failing to roll back the massive regulatory, zoning, and oppression damage done by the liberal Democrats that preceded them, they actually added to the problem.

No freedom, liberty, or reduced government were garnered by the Republicans. As I've said for years now, status quo politics is the same thing as taking away your rights. What has happened, as I explained to liberal Republicans in Watauga County time and again, is the Democrats take your rights away, Republcans come into office and don't take anymore of your rights away, and then Democrats regain office and begin taking your rights away. You lose either way.

And idiot Rethuglicans wonder why they lost Watauga County and the NC Governor's Office? I've gave them a roadmap to success, but they refused to listen. I outlined the problem, but they refused to listen. When Blogger's administrative staff on this site barred me from posting anything negative regarding liberal Thom Tillis, I felt this bunch needed to lose and lose badly. Through the good work of a cabal of freedom minded Patriots, the word got out. Republicans lost here in Watauga County and the NC Governor's Race, even when Trump won the state by several percentage points. I still doubt the dolt rethuglicans in this county have learned a lesson. They ought to join the Democratic Party and get it over with. Careful who you censor.

And now we have liberal County Commissioners ready to take YOUR rights away. You deserve it though. How's it feel to have country bumpkin farmer wanna be John Welsch ready to take your guns away?

Johnny Rico said...

I see the liberal Rethughlicans of the Watauga County Republican Party, the same ones who advocate for censorship on this very site, don't want to touch this one. I've said it for a decade, and now you dolt are faced with the consequences of everything I tried to tell you. You DID NOTHING and were voted out. You had a majority on the County Commission for years and squandered it away. You acted exactly like those you replaced!!! What a bunch of idiots you dolts are (except Vince Gable who was a real Patriot).

Oh yeah, and what did you Republican losers do for that farmer out in the Aho community who had health inspectors all over him for repairing his own septic tank on his own land? Not a murmur from Republican Commissioners. And you idiots wonder why you were voted out during an election year that saw widespread victories by Republicans nationwide? The fact you didn't help that common man out in Aho who was at the mercy of tin pot dictators is a very, very good reason why you're not able to exercise the self-importance you became known for on the County Commission. Better to have known enemies in office than friends who stab you in the back.

Yes, you were told time and again, and what did you do? You actually sent henchmen from the Watauga County Republican Party to SILENCE CONSERVATIVES ON THIS VERY SITE. How'd that work out for you? LOL!! Not very well I see. Out of office, and out of answers. Good riddance.

Watauga County Republican Party - defend yourselves. What do you have to say? Anything? I wouldn't have much to say either if I'd turned my back on conservatives, the very ones who put you two-timers in office. You did a terrible job over the past 8 years of not putting forth candidates for key offices, such as Sheriff, that had a chance of winning. Heck, I hear the Republican Party didn't follow correct timelines in submitting a sheriff's candidate 4 years ago - that candidate had to run as an Independent!! Incompetence. But then again it was never your intention to speak for the people. The Republican Party wanted one thing - power - and they would step on and across their own constituents to keep it. Republican RINOs kept the charade up for 8 years but people finally had enough and didn't vote for them during an election tailor made for Republican Victory? People must've been pretty sick of you losers. Good riddance.

And what does the Republican RINO Party have to say now? Silence!!!!

PS While Trump is talking about the fact we all bleed the same red blood of Patriots, RINO Repulicans in Watauga County retreat to their slime holes and ignore Patriots like that farmer in Aho who go it alone each and every day against excessive regulation and oppression. Stings don't it.

Johnny Rico said...

Remember during this past election when I outlined the fact (several times) that Republican Candidates (RINOs) were little distinguishable from their Democratic counterparts. They all stood for the SAME THINGS. No difference. The Rethuglicans said not a peep about freedom, liberty, or oppressive regulation. Instead they stay in the safe zone of "I stand for education and schools." Blah, blah, blah. How'd that safe zone work out for you traitors? Not too well because all but two RINOs are out of a job!!!! Continue to ignore your constituents at your peril. You had the cat in the bag for 8 years and DID NOTHING.

Oh and what happened to the Johnny Come Lately "Republicans" who came on this site a week or two before various elections a couple years ago begging for votes? The same ones who refused to talk about their stance on modern sporting rifles (called assault weapons by liberal extremists). Little distinguishes RINO Republicans from their Democratic counterparts. It's a one party system in Watauga County.

Where are the Johnny come lately RINOs? Don't want to touch this thread now do you. RINOs might as well join the extremist snowflakes over on Watauga Watch. You'll be with your own over there.

What does that tell you? Says a lot folks. They lost the election because of it.

Sen Susan Collin's proposal as they replace Obamacare has real good elements in it. Give health care to the states with three choices. A state can keep Obamacare as is.

Washington state supreme court ruled 9-0 that a Christian florist discriminated against a gay couple when she refused to provide floral arrangement for a gay wedding, even though she had served the gay man for years and considered him a friend. More dangerously, the court ruled that she could be held PERSONALLY liable for her BUSINESS decision. In other words, not only are her business assets at risk, but her home and personal life savings can be seized because she refuses to bow down to the altar of alphabet soup of sexual revolution. The LGBTQIA yada, yada, yada movement represents the greatest existential threat to Christianity in America. To the freaks, First Amendment rights to freedom of religion ONLY applies to private beliefs and you have no right to actually express or live your life by those beliefs. What good is a right without the freedom to exercise that right? What good would freedom of speech be if you could not actually speak? That right is being nullified, too, at this moment.

I will leave you with a quote from James Madison, Father of the Constitution and Bill of Rights regarding religious freedom:

"Because we hold it for a fundamental and undeniable truth, “that Religion or the duty which we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence”... The Religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man; and it is the right of every man to exercise it as these may dictate.

This right is in its nature an unalienable right. It is unalienable, because the opinions of men, depending only on the evidence contemplated by their own minds cannot follow the dictates of other men: It is unalienable also, because what is here a right towards men, is a duty towards the Creator. It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator such homage and such only as he believes to be acceptable to him."

The "Day without an Immigrant" was a huge flop.

Maybe they need to double down and have a "Year without an Immigrant".

Sarkazein said...

I went to several businesses on "Day without an Immigrant (illegal alien) Day" here in Houston which is predominately staffed by illegal aliens. I never noticed anything amiss. I didn't even know or remember it was "Day Without an illegal alien Day" until I saw it on the news that evening. The local media found two restauranteurs who only had their drive-thrus open and they claimed that was why. I could go for "A Future Without Illegal Aliens Days" even though I never use restaurant drive-thrus.

Sarkazein said...

If we had " A Week With No Illegal Aliens Days", construction quality in Houston would dramatically improve.

guy faulkes said...

Sark, what effect did the illegals have on construction salaries in Houston. In Asheboro, they were cut about in half.

Sarkazein said...

Salaries were cut in half which chased many of the real craftsmen out of the business and kept their apprentices from taking over the trades. Quality was cut in half too. Now, most of the trades are either illegal alien or the owner is legal but he uses illegals to do the work. The sons of the illegals don't want to work at the trades, they want to be the boss with a dually, so more illegals are hired. There was so much work going on in Houston, the illegals were hired to fill the gap. Houston became a sanctuary city, even though the city government won't admit to it. It also spelled out the end of workers comp. for the most part. That insurance was high and the illegals didn't have it or general liability. All that meant a change for the bad in the Houston construction industry. It took about 20 years.
