The American Thinker has always had hard hitting true Conservatives telling it like it is. Thomas Sowell was always so spot on and had a great penchant for prose. Liberals hate The American Thinker and try to ignore its essential truths.

I posted some posts on Vent Page. If any liberal Republicans or commie dumpocrats wanna take a shot at the title, I'm here. LOL. Stings don't it.

Hawkins, in this woman's opinion, should've put both Bushes in the top 10. Each was a commie little different than a dumpocrat. The elder Bush gave us a warning when he quit the NRA and enacted gun control soon thereafter. He also did NOTHING to fight for the proletariat, instead, he gave us more big government, corporations and regulation. Bush jr gave us those pesky gas caps that come on gas cans. Not only do they not work, they spill far more gas than the old gas spouts and raise the cost of the container X2 or3. Bush jr, also gave us mega government, the NDAA, and millions of illegal aliens streaming across the border. He, and his worthless wife, also rail against Trump who is, at the moment, fighting the establishment stranglehold tooth and nail.

A good honorable mention would be senator thom tillis (notice lower case). This commie dolt is worse than any democrat senator that NC has ever had. He has been silent for the past few months, but his true colors were revealed shortly after he was elected (this site banned me from posting in the lead up to his election victory). He is another RINO Richard Burr and will turncoat on Trump at the earliest opportunity (again). thom tillis is even worse than Virginia Foxx who chose liberals in Blowing Rock over conservative sportswomen and men.

How times change- President George HW Bush (as former) quit the NRA during the Clinton administration. He quit the NRA because of rhetoric calling federal agents things like jack-booted thugs. Rightfully so after WACO (ordered by First Lady Hillary Clinton) and Ruby Ridge (calling them jack booted thugs). The anti federal agent rhetoric was still around during the weeks following the Oklahoma bombing where so many feds lost their lives. That made Bush decide to resign his NRA membership as I remember.

Now, the Left is calling our Federal Agents things like jack booted thugs and Conservatives are defending the Federal agents including ICE and The Border Patrol. The difference is the Feds now are not storming Taco Bell with tanks and snipers.

President George W Bush as the Texas governor signed into law the shall issue concealed carry law. He also allowed the sun to set on Clinton's black rifle ban.

George Bush the Elder banned the importation of several "assault rifles" that were in reality just semi-automatic firearms. This treachery outraged gun owners. There was a petition circulated that supposedly had 400,000 signatures to throw him out of the NRA. ( I signed it.) At the time there were about 2.5 million members. In my opinion, this is what caused him to resign as a member of the NRA. It is also my opinion that enough gun owners did not vote for him for his second term that it cost him the election. They voted for conservatives, but not a liberal lite candidate such as Bush.

Up until that point in time, I supported the Republican party under the theory that they were more pro-gun than the Democrats. This was the start of my evolution to supporting only those that represent what I believe instead of a political party.

Sarkazein said...

GuyFaulkes- You are right, President George H W Bush did ban most foreign made "assault rifles" as you wrote. I did not know that. Even though it increased sales for semi-automatic rifles made by American owned companies and their employees and families, it was still a ban.

Because of this new knowledge, President George H W Bush move up my list of most destructive Americans from # 219,457 to 219,246 most destructive Americans.

Sarkazein said...

Inventor of the man bun is # 11 and the inventor of the hat backwards is # 12 and the inventor of sagging pants is # 13. I am assuming they are all Americans.

Sarkazein said...

I left out Rap. It's in the single digits most destructive.

Sarkazein said...

I don't know who the first rapper was. Or the first person that called it music. The slots fill up fast.

Anonymous said...

Lol, that's some FUNNY stuff Sark. And true of course.

guy faulkes said...

Sark, you may want to add Bush the Younger to your list of destructive Americans. He indicated he would sign an "assault rifle" ban if it made it to his desk.

Sarkazein said...

Boy, talk about the thought police.

Sarkazein said...

GuyFaulkes- That still won't move W ahead of Reagan on my list.

guy faulkes said...

Boy, talk about the thought police.

You are going to have to explain this one to me, SArk.

Sarkazein said...

It is said- If you have to explain humor it must not be humorous. BUT explain away I go- Bush only made a statement, expressed a thought out loud. No action was taken. So he is a destroyer of America because of a thought he expressed.

guy faulkes said...

I did not take it as a random thought. I took if as a promise.

WASHINGTON — President Trump stunned Republicans on live television Wednesday by embracing gun control and urging a group of lawmakers at the White House to resurrect gun safety legislation that has been opposed for years by the powerful National Rifle Association and the vast majority of his party.

In a remarkable meeting, the president veered wildly from the N.R.A. playbook in front of giddy Democrats and stone-faced Republicans. He called for comprehensive gun control legislation that would expand background checks to weapons purchased at gun shows and on the internet, keep guns from mentally ill people, secure schools and restrict gun sales for some young adults. He even suggested a conversation on an assault weapons ban.

At one point, Mr. Trump suggested that law enforcement authorities should have the power to seize guns from mentally ill people or others who could present a danger without first going to court. “I like taking the guns early,” he said, adding, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

The declarations prompted a frantic series of calls from N.R.A. lobbyists to their allies on Capitol Hill and a statement from the group calling the ideas that Mr. Trump expressed “bad policy.” Republican lawmakers suggested to reporters that they remained opposed to gun control measures.- NYT

This is both interesting and alarming, Sark. Do you have a link to the comments made on live T.V.?

Wolf's Head said...

Fake news.

Nothing on drudge or breitbart about this.

Sarkazein said...

Here is the video of President Trump expressing his thoughts regarding guns after Parkland, I believe. I, for one, allow his expression of thought as no action against the 2nd has taken place. I don't thing he should be restricted from expressing thought out loud... I can filter it.

Donald Trump in the year 2000-He concluded: “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s internet technology we should be able to tell within 72 hours if a potential gun owner has a record.”

He never did anything anti-2nd so his space on my list of destructive Americans stays the same.

Johnny Rico said...

Sark,

I know that being from Texas, the bush (notice lower case) Dynasty is fairly sacred territory. Like RINO rick perry, the bushes did nothing to increase your freedoms, liberty or reduce federal power. Unlike Donald Trump, whom I addressed here after his outburst on gun control ,both bushes were big government elitists who sold us down the river each and every time. The gas can spouts that you're FORCED to buy if you want a new gas can at a corporate big box store were given to you by the bush family of liberal socialists. Funny, I don't seem to remember emission standards ever easing up under the bush communists, in fact, I seem to remember the march towards electric cars was in full force under both bushes. Trump at least mentions the 2nd Amendment at rallies and I hear he is even looking at rolling back emission standards. He's not perfect and I don't trust the Trump idiot a bit since we, as Americans, should never place power, trust, and faith in politicians as we've done since commie Lincoln. Texas has given us as many corporation loving, big government loving idiots as California. Remember Alexander Toqaville, Sark, with his famous quote that said something to the effect of: "Government on it's best day is a barely tolerated evil...…" The Bushes weren't the best day.


Both Bushes were anti gun zealots. Younger Bush said he would sign an assault weapons ban if Congress would put the bill before him. WTF! Does that not alarm you Sark? WTF man? The older Bush banned foreign made assault weapons from entering the country. That seems blatantly anti gun to this ole girl. Finally, did you see the bush reaction to Trump's attempt at getting rid of illegal aliens including the separation of families. The Bushes acted just like far left dumpocrats which they would be if they didn't have an R in front of their name. Your state is being overrun by criminals (illegal aliens) and all the pesky bushes can do is yap about separating families even though law enforcement separates American citizen families each day throughout America. Fing idiots.

Sark, the bushes are liberals. They are anti gun, pro government, and anti freedom. Glad jeb didn't get a shot at the status quo governance that surely would've followed another bush in office. Trump is barely tolerable, but the fact he is anti establishment is good (so far).


Sarkazein said...

JR- I don't know about the Bush family being sacred territory. They are good neighbors, good family, youngest WW2 naval combat flyer etc. W runs a ranch in Texas and probably wishes he had voted for Kerry every time he refills his chainsaw. Hard for me to call them enemies of the country. I know during Hurricane Ike when electricity was out for 15 days, I had to constantly refill my generator with a gas can... the whole time damning myself for not voting for Kerry.

Let's face it, the only perfect President would be me or you.

I liked the idea of separating the illegal's families, not sure why President Trump changed it. Even though he changed it, I would still support him in 2020.

Sarkazein said...

Jeb Bush got 1.25% of the vote in the Texas 2016 Republican Primary. Cruze was the big winner with Trump in 2nd place.

Johnny Rico said...

Sark,

Yeah, a seemingly smaller amount of evil is acceptable over a bigger evil - a winning strategy for sure; our country now is proof of that. That gas can you filled your generator with was given to you by Bush and he did exactly what Kerry would do with one glaring exception - he NEVER TOLD YOU. He did it in secret because he's the same type of collectivist as John Kerry. The fact commie Bush went behind your back to regulate you via collusion with corporate America is nothing short of astounding. Like I've said countless times, a known enemy is far easier to fight than a supposed friend (Bush comrade) that stabs you in the back. The RINOs have stabbed us in the back for many years now. Trump, with the many, many faults he has does a good job because, if anything, he disrupts status quo politicians like Virginia Foxx, RINO Richard Burr, RINO Bush Family and Thom Tillis. Trump's snafu with gun control is evidence of his propensity to resort to his old collectives self, however he knows he won't win again without support from gun owners whilst the left is full out for gun control. The RINOs stay silent on guns but wish the issue would just go away. One can feel the proclivity of RINOs to want to vote for gun control so they don't have to deal with a difficult topic like that anymore.

Speaking of RINOs, RINO Rick Perry of Texas is indeed a collectivist oppressor. He signed into law a measure in Texas that allows law enforcement to come into your home without a warrant if you refuse to evacuate for an emergency. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain Sark. Then, remember, he tried to forcefully vaccinate young girls against VD!! That one got shot down, but it showed the world that Rick Perry was little different than his liberal socialist counterparts. You up for a forced vaccination Sark? How's that rest with you? I see little difference between John Kerry or RINO Rick Perry or either commie Bush. I also see the rethuglicans desperately hoping Trump is either impeached or loses in 2020 as their status quo is upended and they don't like it.

Talking about regulation Sark, I found out today through diligent research that US Auto Manufacturers are beginning to make automobiles, in secret, with a start/stop "feature." What this little jewel does is it shuts the cars engine down entirely when you stop and then restarts as you accelerate. They are doing this in conjunction with the EPA and say it supposedly saves gas. Why was the stop/start "feature" NEVER ROLLED OUT TO US CONSUMERS? And what rethuglican senate and house committee that knew this was coming allowed the EPA to work in collusion with US corporations to FORCE the consumer to pay for start/stop? Find that disturbing at all Sark? I do. In fact, I tested the start/stop in a Mercedes Sedan and found it to be as aggravating and silly as I thought it would be (the Europeans installed this "feature" on all cars about 10 years ago). Say for instance your in the median ready to turn across traffic and the delay in time it takes the engine to start again creates sluggishness in crossing the road. All in the name of going green.


US auto manufacturers knew the consumer wouldn't accept start/stop so you know what they did. They just didn't tell anyone. Apparently the backlash, which for some reason has not been reported on at all by ANY media, manufacturers rushed to install a disable button that has to be utilized every time the vehicle is started to work. Nice to have government colluding with corporations to give you the start/stop feature. Sort of like the gas can spouts that were forced upon you. Americans deserve this type of treatment though. The sheeple will accept anything, anything, and gas can lids and start/stop features are recent proof of that.

How about a thread on the start/stop feature - it's something that affects the proletariat that both houses passed IN SECRET because they know what's best for you.

I hear the F150 now has the start/stop feature. One can only hope consumers go to manufacturers who still don't use start/stop to help put pressure on worthless Ford. Perhaps Ford will go out of business for sticking it to the consumer yet again.

I'd like to see Ford go defunct along with the NFL - it would be a glorious day.

JohnnyRico- FORD is my most admired truck company. I did not know about the start/stop. I like FORD because they held out from Obama's takeover of the US auto industry. Obama Enroned GM, so I couldn't buy GM. He sold off Chrysler to the Italians so it's a foreign car company now. So just like the Bushes, I will keep them on my good side.
Curious, have you driven a start/stop? I have not. In Houston one can spend much time at idle. How does the A/C and lights keep up? Thats got to be one hell of a starter and battery. I don't think I like it. Is it an opt out feature if you are one who sits in an idling vehicle with the A/C running and Sirrus channel 6 cranked up?
I had a small turbo diesel once. The turbo lag was scary. Step on the throttle and wait or the countdown. The start/stop could be the same. All said, the only thing I would hate more than start/stop is walking or taking the bus.

Johnny Rico said...

I have driven start/stop in a rental vehicle last year. On a busy highway it's dangerous because there is a lag between the time you press the gas pedal and when the engine starts. Turning across a busy highway makes this all the more dangerous. The AC and electrical are supposedly safe due to extra heavy duty alternators and batteries. There is an opt out feature on some vehicles, however that feature must be turned on each time you start the vehicle. The start/stop "feature" is very aggravating and was given to you buy corporations, Ford included, who CLANDESTINELY colluded with the EPA to push regulations on the consumer. The fact we don't like start/stop is not the issue. The fact car companies hide the fact is what's important here. Why would they hide it?

Ford has went all in and all F-150s will now have start/stop. Let's hope consumers buy trucks from other companies that don't yet have start/stop to help teach commie Ford a lesson. Ford installing start/stop in secret and selling cars to consumers without mentioning it is burdened with start/stop puts it in the class with Chevrolet who needed taxpayers to subsidize it during the supposed recession we had.
