Blackface Headline Controversies

Merriam-Webster defines “blackface” as: “makeup applied to a performer playing a black person, especially in a minstrel show.”

Everyone is worried about Gov. Northram in blackface while in school…blackface has been a part of entertainment and music forever. I never considered it racist.

What people should be discussing is the Democrat position of murdering an infant AFTER THE CHILD HAS BEEN BORN. Northam described it, it was heartless and disgusting. We can’t talk about that because he is all of a sudden, a racist from a college picture taken 30 years ago. All a diversion to remove their infanticide policy from the front page.

From Peggy Noonan‘s editorial in the past weekend’s Wall Street Journal in which she was ranting about the term and use of the word “wall”:

As for what are called social issues, moderation is the future, maybe even a new conservatism, not leftism. The left has demanded too much the past few years, been maximalist in its approach, got in America’s face and space. Its social activism is a daily harassment in ways that don’t show up in the polls. The new abortion regime in the states, bake my cake, the farther edges of #ME Too, demands for changes to our very language. Liberation becomes propaganda and filters up through the media and down to the schools. America once had a lot of “live and let live” in it. Not anymore, and its giving way is causing barely articulable grief, and more broadly than the left imagines.

Wise democrats are developing reservations. Young conservatives are perhaps about to come alive.”

Racist racist racist racist racist racist racist racist racist racist racist racist...I am so tired of hearing the left moan about racism (aren’t you?) when it is THEY who are the racists. What exactly, have the dems done for black and Hispanic America? I mean, really, what have they done to improve the lives of these Americans? They have all gotten wealthier, they live in the big homes surrounded by walls, maybe with armed guards.

The truth is, they have done NOTHING positive. They promise but do not deliver, only pain and suffering. Take a look, Donald Trump HAS done something for black and Hispanic Americans. Unemployment in those two groups are at the lowest levels ever. If the president had some support from his Congress, what more could be accomplished? I dare say- PLENTY.


A Green New Deal?

Where does this crap come from? A twenty-nine year old who believes she knows everything, has a degree in economics-but knows nothing about the economy. The Ocasio-Cortez woman has her head up her rectum, pretty far. What does she want?

From the 2/7 Wall Street Journal:

  • Medicare for all (replacing private insurance with government control)
  • Would require that the US be carbon neutral in 10 years (non-carbon sources provide only 11% of US energy today, this would mandate a complete makeover of American electric power, transportation and manufacturing. (No airplane travel, no diesel engine trucks to move the products we make, electric cars the size of a matchbox, trains running on what?)
  • A guaranteed government job for all; would provide all members of our society, across all regions and all communities, the opportunity, training and education to be a full and equal participant in the transition, including a job guarantee program to assure a living wage job to everyone who wants one.
  • A new system for corporate control. Pocahontas wants a new federal charter for business with more than 1 billion $ in annual revenue that would make companies answer to more than shareholders. Employees would elect 40% of directors who would be obliged to consider “benefits” beyond returns to the owners.
  • Vastly higher taxes (how do you think “they” will pay for all this nonsense? By taxing YOU, of course… my view)
    These are merely the most prominent proposals.”


The American public needs to have a debate about this, lest it sleepwalk into a socialist future it doesn’t want. Credit President Trump for teeing it up in his State of the Union address this week.”

The general election is less than 2 years away, is this really what Americans want of their country? I think not. Ms. Cortez has nearly 2 years to bury herself and her socialist, communist comrades. I hope she will do a good job. If the left gains control of the White House in 2020, this is the crap we will get, and more of it than you can imagine.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….


Have a great weekend…. God bless America!

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.


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.”
