Random Thoughts

Since when did rioting in the streets, breaking windows, smashing police cars, lighting fires, attacking police, and yelling foul words become a "protest?" Oh, that's right, the liberals of the 1960s taught those tactics to the current crop of ignorant progressives.

Even the protesters of the 60s had better manners than the children who have taken to the streets these past few days.

Were the Germans merely "protesting" on Kristallnacht?

Speaking of protesting, just what do these progressives think they want from their petty and childish reaction to Donald Trump getting elected? Do they seriously want to give up the fair election process in favor of mob rule?

This is the first photo of Trump that I've posted here. It won't be the last. I wish him well, but don't expect a lot from him or the Republican Congress. I can always be proven wrong.

My regard and respect to all the veterans who have served this country. Here's a shout out to Jared, who will be joining ranks in a week with the finest men and women our country has to offer.

All those who argue that we need to change the voting system to get rid of the electoral college seriously need to read some history. I don't mean the namby-pamby, feel good, politically correct garbage that passes for history these days. I mean they need to read real history from the Greeks to the classical liberals of the 17th and 18th centuries. They just might learn a thing or two about the dangers of mob rule.

Progressives pick and choose the laws they "feel" like obeying. If Hillary had won the electoral college vote, not a single one of them would protest how "unfair" that system was.

Most of my university students these days write history essays that include the phrase, "I feel..." instead of "I think...." Perhaps if we taught students in schools how to think, instead of how to feel, we wouldn't have been left with a choice between Hillary and Trump as presidential candidates.

I wish President Trump all the success in the world in removing Obama's legacy. Unfortunately, he still must deal with a bunch of weak and irresponsible Republicans in Congress.

Yes, I am happy that Trump was elected president, but mainly because living four years under the direction of Hillary would have destroyed what little we have left of our Republic. Then again, if the anti-Trump protests continue to wage war against the Constitution, we may yet live in Hillary's America.

The best part about Trump's election will be his Supreme Court nominations. He has the opportunity to take the wind out of the sails of the political left's war on the Constitution for another generation. Ginsburg can conceivably be replaced in the next short while. I wish we could rid the country of the opinions of the "wise Latina" who has created some of the most egregious opinions in direct violation of the Constitution. I would love to see John Roberts get replaced by a true conservative, but alas, that's not likely to happen soon.

OK, the other best part about Trump in office is that the war on the 2nd Amendment will grind to a halt, at least for a few years.

Remember that progressive socialists are incessant and patient. Just because Trump's in office, don't for a second believe that the progressives will give up the fight to gut the Constitution and replace our Republic with a socialist oligarchy. They will not readily give up power. Power must be taken away from them.
