From The Epoch Times:
On March 3, the Democrat-led House passed HR1, the “For the People Act” (it should be “Fuck the People Act”). The election reform package, if passed by the Senate, would transfer authority over how elections are administered from states to the federal government and make permanent many voting rules that opponents say lead to voter fraud. Here are some of the key changes to election laws:
-Gives the federal government authority to administer elections (this goes against the written Constitution)
-The bill mandates that any lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of HR1 could only be filed in the District Court for the District of Columbia and all plaintiffs would be required “to file joint papers or to be represented by a single attorney at oral argument.”
-mandates automatic voter registration in all 50 states.
Mandates no-fault absentee ballots (does away with witness signature or notarization requirements for absentee ballots. Would force states to accept absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day.
-Prevents election officials from removing ineligible voters from registries or confirming the eligibility and qualifications of voters.
-Restores the Voting Rights Act
-Bans state voter ID laws (lunacy)
-ensures illegal immigrants can vote
-allows same day voter registration
-allows 16-year-olds to vote
-prohibits the publication of “misleading information” about elections
-allows felons to vote
-mandates early voting
-legalizes nationwide mail-in voting without photo ID
-promotes ballot harvesting
-requires states to accept ballots 10 days after Election Day
-requires colleges and universities to hire “campus vote coordinators”
-mandates that states make absentee voter boxes available for 45 days within an election
-requires states to allow “curbside” voting.
-urges statehood for the District of Columbia
-requires states to redraw congressional districts through “independent” commissions
-allows politicians to use campaign funds for personal use
This is absolutely absurd. These people are shredding The Constitution with impunity. I do not hear outrage from any Republican in Congress-or anyone else. Between this and the “Covid-19” spending spree (of the $1,900 billions spent, only 9% actually goes to covid relief) , the chaos on our southern border, stopping work on the Keystone pipeline and all the other nonsense they have done in two months, we are fucked as a country.
The New Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT)
Are you aware the US military has lowered its aptitude and fitness parameters? We will soon have a collection mentally deficient jelly belly’s protecting our country. I am a huge supporter of the US military and our great Veterans, but this is simply stupid. Our military should be the best, the brightest and the most physically fit, anything less will lead to defeat. Do you think China and Russia, for example, are LOWERING the standards for their military personnel? Chew on that for a minute.
Health and Human Services Secretary Confirmed
On Thursday the US Senate somehow confirmed Xavier Becerra as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Becerra is a partisan hack and a California liberal. He knows noting of health or human services and his new job has a $1.2 trillion budget. How much can he steal and give to his friends.
Columbia University Offers 6 Graduation Ceremonies
Columbia University is segregating their graduating class by gender, race, income level. If this isn’t racist, what is? We are really going backwards in this country; it is uncanny, and I do not understand how Americans could let this bullshit go as far as it has.

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.
If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.
By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.
TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
