Monday, March 29, 2021 National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Thank a Vet…
Rules for Thee…NOT for ME:
The U.S. Supreme Court Reject Conservative Group’s Efforts
The Supreme Court, on March 29, turned down a request to require Hillary Clinton to testify in a case regarding the private email server she used to send classified documents while Secretary of State. What? They know she committed the crime but will not make her testify? That’s nice. Go commit a federal crime, let’s see what leniency you get. Ha ha ha
How is it voter suppression to require some form of identification in order to execute your privilege and civic duty to vote? How is it that people want to eliminate voter ID laws? To extend voting hours? To accept unidentifiable mail-in ballots? To accept no verification of who the voter is? This is all craziness and, if you cannot see it, is designed to ENCOURAGE AND FACILITATE voter fraud.
Cleveland Permissible Spirit Wear
In their unmatched wisdom, management of the Cleveland Indians, on Thursday, announced no red face paint or Indian headdresses will be permitted in the stadium at home games. First, they take away our logo of pride and strength, Chief Wahoo, as being racist and that is even more ridiculous than face paint or headdress. Who are they trying to impress? It only shows how the liberal left is ruining everything our great country stands for.
I hope everyone who voted for the Biden-Harris administration is feeling the pain of rectal itch as they prepare to get fucked by the left. In two months these clowns have opened our southern borders causing chaos and calamity, undue stress; including sex and child trafficking on illegal migrants. They passed a $1.9 trillion Covid spending bill of which only 10% is targeted to covid, the rest is to pay off voters and union votes. Now they are proposing an additional $2.3 trillion in climate and political spending for “infrastructure” i.e. roads, bridges and other traditional public works.
Additionally, tax rates on individuals and businesses will rise, choking off productivity, business investment which will bring a loss of jobs, loss of wages etc. etc. Now, we true Americans are going to have to deal with this horse shit. The left does not participate in the results of higher taxation because most don’t work, they have their collective hands out for everything the nanny state has to offer. Bend over further.
To reiterate, the plan is to use budget reconciliation to jam $4trillion more in spending and $3trillion in tax increases through Congress on a partisan vote. In other words, Biden’s corporate tax increases will HIT THE MIDDLE CLASS HARD-in the value of their 401K’s, the shrinking size of their pay checks and what they pay for goods and services.

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.”
