The vitriol against Donald Trump after his election is shocking. I would venture to say Barack Obama was as feared by many after his election as Donald Trump is feared now, but back then there were no displays of hatred, no demands for his not assuming office, no massive protests and calls for violence. We may have a measure of the decency of one group over the other. We may have a rather vivid example of tolerance versus intolerance.

Remember 9/11

America: Land of the free because of the brave.

Results from the 2012 presidential election have convinced me that a majority of American voters has decided, knowingly or otherwise, to let our beautiful country slip silently into socialism. This grieves me more than I can express. To see the government centralize power at the expense of individual freedom, to see it attack the wealthy and successful, to see it disrespect the U.S. Constitution, to see it fundamentally transform America before my very eyes make my heart break.

Now the November 2016 election is behind us, and I am heartened. Mr. Trump is no perfect candidate, but I'm impressed with what I see so far (in his first few months after being elected). I think in his determination to make America great again, he may indeed instigate conservative policies and do much good for the republic. Undoing much of what Barack Obama has done in his eight years will be a good start.

Feeding People

A guy looked at my brand new Corvette the other day and said: "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost."

I replied: "I'm not sure. It fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky where it was built, it fed the people who made the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur Illinois, at Caterpillar who made the trucks that hauled the copper ore, it fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer, and fed the people working at the dealership and their families. BUT . . . I have to admit, I guess I really don't know how many people it fed."

That is the difference between capitalism and the welfare mentality. When you buy something, you put money in people's pockets, and give them dignity for their skills. When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.

Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value. Socialism is having your money taken from you against your will and having something shoved down your throat that you never asked for.

A German Woman in America
A German woman married an American gentleman born in Virginia and they lived happily in his home town.

The poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries. One day, she went to the butcher counter and wanted to buy chicken legs. She didn't know how to put forward her request, so in desperation, she clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs. Her butcher got the message and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day she needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn't know how to say it, so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned Her blouse to show the butcher her breasts. The butcher understood again and gave her some chicken breasts.

On the third day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store.

What were you thinking?

Her husband speaks English! Hellooo!
