What is happening in the United States of America?

I have listened to the president’s speech on January 6 and I did not hear anything he said which urged the rally goers to storm the Capitol building, to vandalize it, to trespass within its walls, to loot the belongings of others. I did hear him urge the people to “peacefully and patriotically” march to the Capitol. As is typical, you do not hear this on the television, radio, social media or in print. Of course, when Antifa, BLM and other liberals attacked the White House last May, forcing the President into a bunker, that was just fine with these creeps. As they watched Portland and Minneapolis burn, statues torn down and vandalized, and violent protests all over the country, that was fine with these creeps as well, but Donald J. Trump is a bad guy. It is horse shit.

After the accusations of Trump inciting to riot, Twitter and Facebook banned his page and has stopped him from communicating…the President of the United States! Immediately there were calls for him to resign, threats of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office (this failed) and now the House on Wednesday is presenting an article of impeachment, the goal of which is to keep Trump from running in 2024. The swamp is horrified of Trump and his supporters, absolutely horrified. The fact is, Trump has been a great president. He has accomplished what he promised to the American people, few politicians can say that and mean it.

To say I am disheartened is an understatement.

This all began with the assassination of JFK in 1963. Since then the socialists have been creeping into the American way of life, destroying the family unit, removing God from our lives, destroying our history as a country and people, indoctrinating our children, dividing the citizenry into groups, applauding and encouraging sexual orientation other than what is biologically correct and normal, promoting the nonsense called “climate change.” The 1st Amendment is being violated, soon the 2nd Amendment will be under full attack from Joe Biden-or Beto O’Rourke…

All this horse shit and more has led us to this point. We now have a socialist controlled government and if they accomplish what they have said they will, the United States I grew up in will be lost.

Cuomo of New York and Lightfoot of Chicago have both declared this week that they cannot continue to keep their cities shutdown. Does this mean they have made their citizens suffer to further their political ends? You bet they did…but let’s impeach the president. what a farce.




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.”
