Trump: Just How Did He Win? It Was Really Quite Simple Actually.....

                                           
  Election 2016 was a hell raiser, to say the least. It was also a hair raiser. For some people it was a stressful situation in the making. Schools even took part in helping calm the fears of children. Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in to win, some say. However, in the end it was businessman Donald Trump was elected the next President of the United States. A great many people objected to his winning. Many more were scratching their heads as to how someone like him, a bully, a racist, a sexist had won. How? Voters asked. How? Democrats asked? How on earth did this happen? I didn’t scratch my head. I wasn’t surprised at all. And here is my explanation on why he won.
                                             
      Putting aside the hacking that the Russians took part in our American Democratic process of doing things, people were just plain tired. They were tired of the Democratic Party’s way of doing things. It’s no secret that the Democrats are liberals. Bleeding Heart liberals. Being liberal is no crime. I’m a liberal, but I’m also a realist. It seems that Democrats want to take all our money, yours and mine and give it to everyone else even illegal immigrants. They want to continue to give jobs to illegal immigrants and not Americans. Their support of keeping illegals here repeatedly demonstrate that. And then there’s talk of free college. And who exactly is going to pay for that? We are. You and I. American citizens are. Not illegal immigrants because they don’t make much and what they do make is sent back to their native countries. But, it would be the illegal immigrants that would benefit from the free college taking up spaces that American children should be taking.

How about prisons? Democrats want to reform the prison system. They should, but not in the way they want. Did you know that in the Federal Prison system inmates can say no when told to work? They don’t have to work and when they do they actually receive a pay check. They have access to big screen televisions and sports. They get free medical and dental care, three hot meals and a bed. In some prisons that are designed like dorms, they have private rooms.  Despite having every opportunity that you and I had to go to school and get an education, they chose not to and instead delved into criminality, the Prison system helps them get their GED and go to college. Did you know that Obama wants to give inmates back the Pell Grant and in some places he already has? That takes slots away from hard-working students. Young people that didn’t commit crimes. Yes, your child will now have to compete with a convict for a Pell Grant? Doesn't our children deserve better than this? Inmates had the same chance as anyone else did and blew it? Why give them a second chance? Because Obama felt sorry for them. By the way, the federal Pell Grant program is the largest single source of grant aid for undergraduate postsecondary education funded by the federal government. Doesn't that make you feel good?  Oh yes and all this is for free. Homeless people and students don't get a free education, but this is the reality of our Federal Prison system thanks to Democrats. Yes, the Prison system needs to be reformed but not the way the Democrats aim for. This is the legacy of President Obama and the Democratic Party: take from the working Americans and give to the lazy and/or illegal immigrants, and criminals.
                                       ObamasNumbers4thquarter2013
     Despite Barack Obama making many promises, he kept none. Despite, giving a good talk every time he spoke, he failed to walk the talk. The man really just didn’t do anything positive for the United States. He had only one agenda: Obamacare. Millions of Americans are still unemployed. Millions of Americans still live in poverty. Despite promising that his administration would be the most transparent, it was anything but. Despite being the President to the entire nation, when it came down to race, he took sides. Before gay marriage was legal, he had a gay staff member get married on the White House lawn. He threatened schools with cutting budgets if they didn’t provide bathrooms to those that choose to live the opposite sex different from the one they were born. There's nothing wrong with Gender neutral bathrooms but forcing men and women, especially children to share bathrooms with others of the opposite sex simply because they choose to be the opposite is just plain wrong. Despite promising to enforce strict gun control even with an Executive Order after a school of young children were slaughtered to death in Newton, CT, he did nothing substantial except to enforce laws already on the books and form committees. Despite promising to provide jobs to millions of Americans through various routes, he didn’t. Despite, promising to raise taxes for the rich, he didn’t.

     In the end, when faced with his broken promises, he blamed the Republicans for blocking him. He could have made an Executive Order, but chose not to. However, he did make an Executive Order to keep over 15.4 million of Illegal immigrants in this country. He also made one to make certain areas into National Parks. And what about Guantanamo Bay? Didn't Obama promise to close that? I bet you didn't know that any illegal immigrant can enter the U.S.A. and go to the local social services office and apply for and receive Food Stamps, money and medicaid even though they are not American citizens. The Federal Government makes sure of that.  And what about the $221 millions that Obama sent to the Palenstinian Authority during his last hours of his Presidency? This is the legacy of Obama and the one that Hillary Clinton would continue, if elected.

Frankly, people got tired of it. I got tired of it. By now, you’re probably guessing I support Trump. Wrong. I don’t. Second, you’re probably guessing I voted for him. Wrong again. I didn’t. I don't support bullies, sexists, or those telling women what to do with their bodies. I’m also not anti-Obama. I actually hoped he was different. You’re probably guessing I’m a Republican, too. Wrong again, though I have been at one time a long time ago. I’m a Democrat, or at least I was until Obama failed to make good on his promises, on top of using my hard earned money to give away.  The Republicans want to keep us poor. The Democrats give our money to everyone. I supported Hilary, but I couldn't vote for her. Now I’m a Libertarian. I’m a Realist. I no longer vote because in the end for me, does it really matter. But that is another post I already wrote about.
                                         Obama speaks about unemployment
     Why did Trump win the election to the office of the 45th President of the United States? Simple. He wants to make America great again: strong and unified. He wants to help Americans and not the rest of the world. He wants to cut government waste. He wants to do what is best for the United States and not for the United Nations or Mexico, et al. Americans are tired of being trod upon while illegal immigrants are given more rights than they are; while LGBQT are elevated; while convicted criminals are catered to. People are tired of terrorists attacking the U.S. Americans are tired of the Democratic party taking money from the working people and giving it to everyone else including illegal immigrants and the lazy good for nothings. One of the last things Obama did in the last few hours as President was to give 221 million dollars to the Palestinians. Shouldn't America be taking care of our own in poverty before sending money away to others? Democrats don't seem to think so.

     There was a time not so long ago that being an “American” meant something. People were proud to be American. Not anymore. Under Democratic leadership, America bowed to the will of the United Nations. America sends billions of dollars of our money to other countries while Americans are struggling to get by. All this has to stop and Trump has promised to do so. That is why he won. And contrary to what you may think, minorities, women and even Muslims voted for Trump. Seems they were a bit tired of Democrats too. Now whether he’ll actually does these things is another matter. Fact is that most people seem to ignore is that any one running for office will say anything to get into office. That doesn’t mean they will keep their promises. Fortunately, Mr. Trump is unlike other Presidents before him. As a private businessman, he doesn't drag his feet when doing something. He doesn't consult Congress. He doesn't believe in red tape. His travel ban was blocked by bleeding heart liberals. As actions demonstrate, Americans seem to care about everyone else rather than other Americans, which is very sad.
Frankly, all this makes my stomach turn. It's also why I prefer animals over people. Animals don't lie. They don't betray you. They don't see skin color, sex or religion. They expect nothing from us and give us love, friendship, unwavering support, and undying loyalty in return. Too bad they can't be in politics. That's my opinion anyway. What is yours? Why do you think Trump was elected?

Marmite: Should You or Shouldn’t You Try It? What is it?

                                             

     You’ve probably heard of Marmite. Then again, perhaps you haven’t. If you’ve ever visited Great Britain, Australia or New Zealand odds are you heard of it. I have, but though I’m a frequent traveler to Europe always beginning in London for summer holidays, I’ve never tried Marmite. What the H--- is Marmite you may ask. Excellent question. First, what is it? From Wikipedia: Marmite is the brand name for two similar food spreads: the original British version, since 2000 a Unilever product; and a modified version produced in New Zealand by Sanitarium Health Food Company and distributed in Australia and the Pacific. Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing. Basically, it’s the excess yeast that comes off the beer when beer is made. Tell me, who thought of such a thing? Did a beer maker watch as the yeast came off the brewery and spread it on a cracker? Who really knows.  Does it even matter? I did realize one thing: It was time that I gave marmite a try. I really should, though. In order to get the overall English experience. Besides, I’m just one of those people that will try any food once. My adage when traveling is “when in Rome do as the romans do, or eat as they would”. It does make for a more enjoyable visit.

                                          
       I went to my local market in Jackson, Mississippi just the other day and purchased a genuine jar of Marmite. A small jar, just in case I didn’t like it. Yes, grocery stores in the U.S. now carry it. Not all stores but those that have an international section should. Well, after hemming and hawing over an entire day, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, just the name of it, Marmite didn’t do anything to draw me to it. Neither did the fact that it is labeled “Yeast Extract”. But, I decided to give it a try and try I did. I opened the jar and spread it thinly on a Wheat Thins cracker. Hmmmmnnnn…..it’s brown like beef base. It’s salty, very salty in fact and it even tastes like beef base. Not bad. Not great. I don’t love it. I don’t hate it. I might even eat it again. I certainly won’t go out of my way to eat it. I know the small jar I bought won’t get emptied fast, but I shall endeavor to try it every now and then. Next time, I think I’ll spread it on some toast with some strawberry jelly. They say people that have tried it either hated it or loved it and I believe it. It does take some getting used to. It does take some will power to get past the name and what it is. All in all, not a disgusting item to digest. It could even be used to make a nice vegetable soup. After all, it is vegetarian. Oh, should you find yourself interested in trying it and can’t find it at your local supermarket, no problem for amazon carries it.

Illegal Immigrants…Liability or Asset to the U.S.A?

                                                Image result for statue of liberty
    America was built by immigrants. Immigrants founded this county. Most of us descended from immigrants. My ancestors emigrated here from Europe. The difference between my ancestors and those filing into American now is that the ones entering now are illegal immigrants. 
                                                
    A lot of people, including those in the Federal government say that we need illegal immigrants in this country to keep it going, to keep the economy strong.  Of course, that is just a lie perpetuated by the government and bleeding heart liberals. Fact is illegals pay very little to nothing in taxes because they are undocumented. They don’t receive pay checks. Instead, they receive money under the table. There is no income tax returns. Nothing. Nada. However, they are allowed to get tax refunds despite paying no taxes. Yes. They do. What we really need is to send the illegals back home and pay American citizens a real paycheck.  We really don’t need illegals utilizing our services and never paying for them. They may work here, but since they’re working for peanuts they barely spend any money in the United States. They don't have bank accounts either. Truth is, they spend very little funds here at all. Mostly because, they’re busy sending most of what they do earn back home. Don’t believe me? Go to the local grocery store on a Friday evening where you must stand behind a dozen or so of them while they purchase money orders to send most of their money back to Mexico, or wherever else they come from. Why does the Mexican President strongly oppose the Wall Trump wants to build? Mexico would lose a great deal of money. Illegal immigrants or Mexican Nationals as their homeland calls them send back home $25 billion a year, which helps the Mexican economy. (The Week Feb. 3, 2017 p. 8) That's a great deal of money not going into the American economy, isn't it? So how does this help the American economy? It doesn’t.
                                               
Ask them why they aren’t citizens, or if they ever plan on becoming one and they’ll flat out tell you that they don’t want to be. They just want to come to America, make all the money they can to send back home so that they can buy property and home there. And what incentive is there to become an American citizen if our governments are just going to give them free stuff without it? And while they’re working for peanuts, they’re taking the rightful jobs of Americans. Some people will say that’s not true but it is. Look at it rationally: What American wants to or can afford to work for ten dollars a day? Not one. But illegal immigrants can because ten dollars a day is more than they’d ever make back home. Not to mention that they live in groups in their rentals, often 10 to 20 people in a dwelling. If American business owners can pay illegal immigrants ten dollars a day to work, why would they hire American citizens to work for ten dollars an hour? They won’t. There are two set of criminals involved in illegal immigration. The illegal immigrant, the criminal for sneaking into America, and the business owners that willingly hires them knowing that they’re criminals and do it anyway.  Both sets of people are criminals and should be treated as such. What does it say about the character of an immigrant running into America without checking in with appropriate officials and know it's illegal to do so. They're criminals and they know it. Why else do they immediately go into hiding? What does it say about the business owner that knowingly hires illegals?
        
“The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has estimated that 11.4 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the United States in January 2012. According to DHS estimates, "the number of illegal immigrants peaked around 12 million in 2007 and has gradually declined to closer to 11 million. “    
                                                                                     Illegals riding into U.S.A. on trains.
     As a people, I have no real problem with immigrants. However, illegal immigrants are another matter. I refuse to feel sorry for them.  I refuse to carry them on my back any longer. They are after all criminals just as those doing illegal drugs are criminals, or those robbing banks are such. What part of the word “illegal” do most people not understand? It’s not difficult to understand that premise. They are liability to every hard-working American and their families. And no I’m not a Trump supporter, but I am a supporter of America and its citizens. I believe in the right of every American’s right to obtain the American dream? But illegal immigrants are not citizens and all they do is steal the jobs of Americans because they will work for next to nothing, and as long as that happens no American can get those jobs because Americans simply can’t afford to do so. Illegal children take up space in schools that belong to American citizen children. Because these children are undocumented, the Federal government give no funds to our city schools to teach them, yet they’re taught on our tax dollar. They take up space in hospital emergency rooms because they have no insurance, and yet they don’t get fined by the U.S. government because they’re not citizens. Don't get me started on how much America spends to support illegal immigrants? It costs the American tax paying citizen $113 billion dollars a year. Yes. That is the price of American Democracy at work.
                     
Illegals on line for Welfare.
    I bet you didn't know that any illegal immigrant can enter the U.S.A. and go to the local social services office and apply for and receive Food Stamps, money and medicaid even though they are not American citizens. The Federal Government makes sure of that. Did you know that illegal immigrants even get more money than in Welfare than Americans do? Ture. According to the immigration control advocacy group, Center for Immigration Studies, which breaks down federal cost data from 2012, the welfare payout to likely illegal immigrant households averages $5,692 yearly, compared with the average $4,431 welfare payout to non-immigrant households collecting the benefit. Why is that I wonder? All payouts made are on the tax dollar from American citizens not from illegal immigrants. They also get to file for Social Security benefits, too.
                                                  
U.S. Border sign warning illegals that they are criminals if they do not report to an Immigration Officer. If you don't report, you are breaking the law. Plain and simple.
     
                    U.S. Sanctuary Cities.
     And what about sanctuary cities. Ever wonder why a police officer never arrests someone that is actually and obviously an illegal immigrant? They can’t. It’s forbidden. Why? ”Sanctuary city is a term that is applied by some to cities in the United States or Canada that have policies designed to not persecute undocumented immigrants.” Imagine that. The illegals are criminals but the city will protect them. Not only that, but these cities go out of their way to show mercy to the illegal immigrants including the hard core criminals. More than one American citizen has been murdered by illegal immigrants every year and nothing happens to the illegal, the criminal, the murderer.                 
    Even though they’re not American citizens, Liberal Americans show mercy towards illegals and citing the U.S. Constitution believe that they have a right to an attorney on our tax dollar and a right to a fair trial. However, the Constitution was written for American citizens not illegal immigrants. Worse yet, as things worsen for American citizens, things get better for illegal immigrants. In a lot of cities and states in the U.S., in California for one, illegal immigrants have more rights and protection than American citizens do. They actually can get drivers licenses there without any kind of documentation. Do you remember the last time you had to get a drivers license? Didn't you and I need more than one kind of documentation?  California even  made it possible by making American taxpayers foot the bill for illegal immigrants to attend college. I bet you didn't know that in a city in Minnesota, there lives the largest community of Somalians outside Somalia. Minnesota welcomed them with open arms and even goes out of their way to make them feel home. They even put the drivers license exam in Somalian, but no other ethnic group aside from Spanish. In Wisconsin, the government give grants up to $100,000 for illegal immigrants to purchase homes. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.  Some of the links I used are below. How is any of this right? Is it fair to hard working American citizens? Is it fair to those immigrants that spent the time, effort and money to become American citizens? Is it fair to the homeless of our country who aren't treated as royalty as the illegals are? No. It isn’t. When was the last time you heard our government go out of their way to help homeless Americans?
                                       
Business owners will continue to get rich while you and I continue to pay taxes to take care of the illegal immigrants. I’d be the first one to drive an illegal immigrant to the court house should they wish to be an American Citizen. I shall stand by their side when they swear to do so. Until that day, illegal immigrants just need to be sent back home. Go back home or become a citizen the way other immigrants have done. Fine the business owners that perpetuate their arrival. And yes, build a wall, if that is what it takes. Sending all the illegal immigrants home and stemming the flow of new ones will be difficult but not impossible. The American government made this mess by not stopping the flow of illegals in the first place. They just turned a blind eye until now someone has to take a stand. Enough is enough. It's time to put Americans first. There is no crime in that. That is my opinion. What is yours? Do you feel illegal immigrants deserve a break to remain in this country, or should they rightfully be sent home? Do enjoy paying taxes only for your money to be used for illegal immigrants? What do you think?
                                         
 “One recent estimate by researchers at the Pew Hispanic Center puts the number of illegal aliens in the workforce at 8 million out of an overall population of 11.2 million illegal aliens, i.e., 71.4 percent. 1 That estimate is generally accepted as reasonable.”
                                        
Want to know how to recognize an illegal immigrant in your neighborhood? Look for the minority that avoids looking at you, looks away or down while in the store with you. Look for the minority that is driving very slowly on the road, not too much below the speed limit but not too much over it either. They're usually driving an old clunker, but not always. They don't want to be seen or catch notice to themselves because they're illegal.

         What exactly are ‘sanctuary cities’ in immigration policy?

      
   That’s it for this time. Thank you all for visiting with us. Until next month, every one please stay safe. Smile. Be happy. Show compassion. Be nice to others. Put a little love into your heart. Please speak up for those without a voice, whether it be a dog, cat, elephant or monkey.  One person, one voice can make a difference. Read a book. Review it. Share it. Pass it along.

To make a complaint against a business, try the Better Business Bureau at https://www.bbb.org/


Make adoption your first option when seeking a pet. Adopt. Don’t shop. Can’t adopt. Please consider fostering one. The animal will have the taste of home and the shelter will cover the expenses. Can’t foster? Make a donation or volunteer at your local shelter. Please, don’t hunt. Unless you’re starving down in a ditch somewhere, there is no logical reason to do so. Whatever you do, however you do it, please be a voice for the animals large and small. All it takes is one to make a difference, good or bad. 

 

                                    Together, you and I can make a difference. If you like what you see here, please consider signing up to become a follower. Please feel free to share this post with others.
