A vote for Biden is a vote for…

Saw this on Instagram from a family member and it ticked me off.

Well here’s what I believe:

A vote for Biden is a vote for drag queen story time, cop killing, rioting, destruction of black communities, infanticide, and pedophilia.

And yes, I’m going to vote in the election.

For Trump.

How? How can I, a Christian, vote for a three times married, twice divorced, adulterous, woman mistreating dirt bag like Trump?

Easily:

The Death of RGB and the Opportunity Now Presented…

An opportunity that the right must not squander.

First, let’s address the elephant in the room. Less then 45 days until the Election. The left of course wants the right to wait until wait until after the election for ‘fairness’ because in 2016 the Republican lead Senate refused to vote on Obama’s pick to replace Scalia.

And because they think we are stupid and owe them something.

We don’t.

In 2016, the Obama Democrats didn’t have the votes to get their nomination the SCOTUS seat. In 2020, the Trump Republicans do have the votes. It’s that simple. It’s that Constitutional.

Prior to Justice Scalia’s untimely death in 2016, the population of America decided that they didn’t like the direction America was headed under Democratic leadership and elected a bunch of Republicans instead. Thus taking control of the Senate and the House in 2014. During 2016, the left argued incessantly that it was the Republican lead Congress’s -duty- to fill the SCOTUS seat with an Obama nominee.

Now, in 2020, the left is arguing it’s the Republicans -duty- to wait until after the election.

Because of ‘fairness’ and RBG ‘death wish’ and because they’re a bunch of hypocrites and only care about ‘fairness’ when it applies to the left.

Sorry. Not sorry. But the party who blantantly and falsely accused Kavanaugh of being a Gang Rapist based on his HS yearbook in front of his family and the obviously politically coached statements from Blasey Ford do not get to lecture the right on ‘civility’ and ‘fairness’.

Have we so quickly forgotten the torment of Kavanaugh?

You should watch it again because it’s powerful and shows the extreme lengths that the left will go to destroy anyone who politically stands between them and power. Even the squishy ‘semi-conservative’ Lindsey Graham lost it.

Also worth watching. I pray Graham and the rest of the right doesn’t forget either moment this time around.

But oh no. Civility, fairness, and RBG’s death wish doesn’t do anything for me.

And last I checked, RBG’s seat wasn’t -hers-. It was the American peoples seat to fill with whomever their duly elected officials deem appropriate. We are not a monarchy of family power where someone can bequeath their seat to someone of their parties choosing. Death wish be damned. She should have known that as she argued so much that the late Scalia’s seat SHOULD have been filled in 2016.

If anything, the right should view this moment as a ‘WWTLD’. What Would The Left Do?

If the left was in power, they’d ram through someone faster than the right could get a chance to even investigate. They wouldn’t care if they had the Presidency and the Senate. They wouldn’t care to ‘give the American people a chance to vote for it during a Presidential Election’.

Which, by the way, there is nothing in the Constitution that says… (paraphrasing here) “If a SCOTUS dies within X days of a Presidential Election, the spot will be held vacant until after the Election.”

Them’s not the rules.

And historically, the position has been filled much quicker than that. If I recall correctly, 70% of the time since 1900. And the late liberal John Paul Stevens was appointed in something like two weeks.

And do not forget, that at any point during Obama’s presidency when he had total control of both houses of Congress, RBG could have ‘timely’ retired and been replaced with a 40 something year old progressive who would sit for another 40 years in a SCOTUS seat. Instead, she kept the power to herself, hoping for Trump to not be elected, and it appears, re-elected.

This is her fault. This is the left’s fault for where they sit now in their position of powerlessness.

But, by all means, keep burning down cities in protest for anything you disagree with. I hear that polls GREAT with white suburban moms who make up a major demographic of the left’s. -smirk-

Now, some Republicans are afraid to vote on Trump’s nominee. Because they fear if the left takes power, they’ll ‘pack the court’ by adding more liberals to the court. Increasing the 9 to whatever they wish. Say 15. Unfortunately the Constitution does not limit the number of SCOTUS seats.

Again, WWTLD. What Would The Left Do? Pack the SCOTUS by adding seats? Okay. Let’s do that with Conservatives. How about 10 more. We’ll fill that court with so many fire-breathing conservatives like Ted Cruz that for the next few years they’ll do nothing but overturn abortion, prayer in schools, socialist medicine, the National Firearms Act, and gay marriage.

Let’s do it!

Whew…. Snakes, Writing, Coronavirus, and More!

Snakes – Yesterday, my kids discovered a snake at our new house. I don’t know squat about snakes except that I strongly dislike them to the point of having the super heebie-geebies around ’em. So I did what anyone does when confronted with something so vile, evil, and slithery… I chopped it’s head off with a hoe.

My daughter on the other hand, is totally fearless. And she was insistent that it was not dead until the body stopped twitching when poked with a stick…

20200401_213759-1282499760258767761.jpg

Yeah, she’s far braver than her dad.

Coronoavirus – Not much to say even though it’s the topic of the year. Stay safe, wash your filthy hands often, and know that God is in control of all of this. (And gun sales were up 85% in March!)

Writing – Semi-final draft is completed.

I have an odd method of writing, I’ll start from the beginning, write until I get bogged down or stuck, then go back to the beginning and re-write/polish. This gives my brain time to percolate how the book will continue and then when I get back to where I quit – I write on. This leads my writing to have a more polished beginning and rougher ending. Maybe it’s weird, I haven’t heard of anyone else doing it – but it certainly works for me.

But, I just completed the FGB (Final Great Battle) and the end scenes. So back to the beginning to polish more.

And the word count came in at a touch over 88,000. Which is far short of the original 118,000 of West of Prehistoric. But I tend to go light on details as I write, so I’ll add a few thousand more words in filling out descriptions and such, and I suspect the FGB will require another couple thousand words… so I’ll get to my goal of 100k soon enough.

Then it will be time to send out to anyone and everyone who is willing to give it a read for feedback.

Personally, I like it.

It covers a lot of ground, adds some new characters, kills some old characters, the love story grows, and there’s lots of awesome dinosaur/ape violence and gun play. All while keeping it’s original concept of being a science-fiction adventure prehistoric western.

So yeeehaw!

Old House – We sold our old house Tuesday. Thank heavens. Two mortgages is the suck. But being able to move at our leisure was pretty nice. It was a great starter home, even though we out grew it within 9 months of moving in by getting an English Mastiff and Pregnant almost immediately! But I’ll have fond memories of it just the same and I hope the new owners make plenty more.

Blogging – When I started this blog, so long ago, the intent was to talk conservative politics. But honestly, since Trump has been elected, I’ve grown weary of arguing about politics for the most part. I guess it’s like he said about us getting tired of winning. 🙂 OR the left’s incessant whining…. Anyways, blog content has gone down but this place will stay up forever. Because I intend on becoming an award winning writer one day and making lots of monies and entertaining you folks for hours upon hours with my ability to weave words into stories. In the meantime, I need a platform. So here we are.

Wrapping up – The writing continues. Stay safe out there. And God Bless the USA.

 

 

P.S.

I lied.

I’d like to say one quick political thing. If you haven’t heard, the founder of MyPillow(Mike Lindell) gave a quick statement with Trump during a presser on the Coronavirus.

We’ve dedicated 75% of MyPillow manufacturing to produce cotton face masks. It was up to 10,000 a day. By Friday, I want to be up to 50,000 a day…. Now I wrote something off the cuff if I can read this. God gave us grace on November 8th, 2016 to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools and lives and a nation has turned it’s back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back into the Word. Read our bibles and spend time with our families. Our President gave us so much hope where just a few short months ago we had the best economy, the lowest unemployment, and wages going up. It was amazing. With our great President, Vice President, and this administration, and the great people of this country praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that is safer than ever.”

That is awesome.

And to all those people who are whining about Lindell mentioning reading the bible, praying daily, and spending time with our family – I wish you’d enjoy your ramen noodles, mounds of toilet paper, and involuntary isolation away from social media. Bernie will be along to save you later. /sarcasm.

If he’d stepped onto stage with Obama and shouted, “We’re going to convert our manufacturing building into a Planned Parenthood clinic, where we can process 1,000 abortions a day!”

You’d all be calling him stunning and brave and clamoring for him to get a medal.

Okay. Rant over.

Everyone, enjoy your weekend – Praise Jesus and Pew Pew.

 

A Few Random and Unpopular Opinions.

First – “Your allegiance should be to the Constitution, not to a person, President, or political party.”

I love Trump, he tickles me. He’s one of the greatest Presidents we’ve ever had. He deserves his place on Mount Rushmore.

But he sucks sometimes too. Especially when it comes to his waffling back and forth on firearms. If he wants to see his almost guaranteed 2020 win evaporate, he needs to allow an Assault Weapons Ban to go through. He’s already ticked us all off over the Bump-Stock ban.

I’m also a Republican, well, really a Libertarian, but I know a losing side when I see one and prefer to work within the system rather than sit outside the gate kicking my boots against it hopelessly. But the Republicans really suck sometimes.

(Also – That is not my quote. I can’t recall where I read it, if you know who said it, please let me know so I can give credit.)

Second – I think Greenland would be a pretty sweet buy. Vast, open spaces, low population density, huge and untapped resources, and access to the arctic that would make Russia jealous. It may take some time to sway the Greenlandies to our side, but once they reach our obesity levels… we can trust them.

Besides, why would the Danes still want it?

According to Climate Change specialists it’s going to melt into the sea in the next dozen years. So we’re looking at diminishing returns here on our investment. The Art of the Deal man should be able to use this to his advantage.

Speaking of climate change activists, why did the Obamas just buy a mansion at Martha’s Vineyard that is dang near sea level?

Won’t it be under water shortly?

Rhetorical question, because they don’t believe in it anymore than I do, they just see the POWER that comes from using FEAR to gain political advantages and force economic changes that benefit them and their goals for America.

Third – I’m not that big a fan of Chic-Fil-A. I like that they’re a Christian company who non-apologetically sticks to their guns, and I’ll support that by eating their food… but really… other than the lemonade and chicken nuggets.. not a big fan. And for the love of all that’s good, please stop putting pickles on my chicken sandwiches and put some mayo on it instead.

(I do hear their frosted lemonade is the bomb-diggity though.)

 

Book Update.

Let’s see. When it comes to Publishing Houses, I’m doing well. Several have shown  strong interest so far, plus the one offered contract. When it comes to Publishing Agents, I’m at 22 rejections. So, all in all, pretty good. 22 is still a pretty low number of rejections, and considering how genre-blending this book is, it’s going to be a hard sell. Folks keep telling me how it’s unlike anything they’ve ever read, which is awesome, but that also makes it more difficult to interest agents and publishers. But the interest is good enough that I’m confident it’ll sell.

For the sequel, I passed the 60k word mark over the weekend. That’s half-way to my goal. For my first sequel and second book ever, it’s considerably easier than the first now that I’ve climbed the learning curve and most of the world building/characters/villains etc have been built and established.

If you’re curious as to what I’m talking about. Here’s the first 15% of the book, if you like it, I’ll send you a copy for the sake of feedback.

I just received my first FB Achievement medal!

By being tagged for ‘hate speech’…

20190809_0943375216787078785420146.jpg

Generally speaking, I don’t post about politics on FB much anymore. Or on this blog.

Honestly, it’s because I’m tired of the division and tired of Trump’s winning. I’m also tired of arguing with people who are frothing crazy and irrational and driven by hatred for Trump. Look, you can have your own beliefs, that’s fine. But as a human being, you owe it to yourselves to educate yourself, to challenge your beliefs, and correct them as you discover grow, learn, and discover facts and reasoning’s.

And I’m not saying, “Oooo, Republicans are always right and Democrats always wrong!”

Not true. Republicans suck also. As I mentioned in my last post, read the comments sometime in a Fox News article – it’s cringe worthy to read what ‘my’ people have on their minds. And there are plenty of wimpy Republicans who support gun control, abortion, high taxes, etc. Such as John McCain. He was terrible and I wrote about that when he died.

But the reason I posted that comment to FB is because every single Democrat at the Presidential debate with a podium denounced Trump as a racist every chance they got.

Which means all 63,000,000 voters who supported Trump are racist as well by default.

Correct?

Either we are racist and support his racism, or we are tens of millions of ignorant fools who unknowingly elected such an evil man, and you folks are the shining beacons of all that is good and just in the world here to enlighten us and offer trinkets and other free things…

Which is it? We’re stupid? Or racist white supremacists as well?

Either way, you want our votes.

So, I think my statement is pretty accurate.
