God and Politics

God doesn’t care about politics.

I believe that God is like gravity, a divine essence that treats us all the same and keeps us here on the earth. The sceptic might say “but man has made it to the moon”. I would reply God is energy, it is energy that brought us to the moon and beyond. You might see where I am going here.

Religion is our definition of God. We believe that God wants us to be better than we are. It is pretty much that simple. God is out there and he wants us to be better than we are. That is religion.

Because I think that Donald J Trump is an extraordinary politician I was told that I think that Trump is a God. Nothing could be further from the truth. I believe that Trump is a flawed human being, doing the best he can. There they go again, telling me how I think. Whatever, let them go back to worshipping their own flawed god.

I have no problem with a person’s religious moral beliefs determining who they vote for. I do have a problem with voting to determine a person’s religious beliefs.

When it comes right down to it, God is beyond energy. Right now we are lucky to be able too vote for our beliefs. Not everyone is able to do that.

So if religion is about morality, what is politics about? Power, money, security? Yes all of that and more. Politics is about determining the society in which we live. Something that is different than how we choose our own personal morals. It is because we have different personal morals that we need a society to protect our liberty and provide justice for all.

I AM A New York Liberal

Really, I am. Born in the burbs of the world’s greatest city you could not find a more liberal environment. When there was a national crisis, the church I went to would have its sermon broadcast on national TV. The alternative school I went to was on national TV. I even remember seeing the back of my head on network TV. I lived in an uber liberal world.

I did not pay a lot of attention, but I knew something was wrong. We had Time, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report magazines every week in the mail. Despite the incredible size of the world all three would always had the same person on the cover. The networks were the same way. I knew something was wrong when with all the stories in the world I kept on seeing the same story. They may have put their own spin on somthing, but it was still the same story. To top it off we read the book 1984 in school. There was indoctrination going on.

My heart was in the country, and eventually I moved. The town I moved to was ninety eight percent Republican. So I registered Republican I had no problem with that, politics did not mean that much to me.

The definition of liberal was to be generous, a liberal portion or helping was a good amount. To be conservative was to be stingy. It was the lexicon of the day. Life was a bit harder in the country. However the sky was blue and the grass was green. Life was good.

Yet, was I still a New York Liberal? It was such a long time ago, memories faded. Some of the worse memories were repressed. It was a land of long long ago and so far away. I guess the only thing I really remember was Kumbayah. Yes the lexicon of a liberal, it was so far away. I had become a simple gentle soul in a flannel shirt and a red cap living in a forgotten countryside.

 

Then came the man in the big jet with the red hat. I recognized him instantly, he was a New York liberal. Running as a Republican. I liked him instantly. Everything is a balance, not to much, or to little. I saw a balance between liberalism and conservatism. For the first time in my life I expressed a point of view, and became involved.

Where I saw a balance, others did not. I was absolutely amazed to have flashbacks of the horrors I had endured as a liberal. I did not recognize it at the time, it was just life. Setbacks were just explained as “That’s Life” no need to question, just move on. I had seen the signs, I just did not recognize them, I had simply moved on.

Politically what was a victory, had become a loss. A loss for liberalism. It is my belief that it had simply become inbred. I moved away before I became infected. Trump on the other hand was living in it, and is fighting it. Why? What else could be do. He loves his city. It was once the greatest city in the world. In the greatest country in the world. Inbred liberalism will destroy from within. It has so many times before. When you give it all away, you have nothing left.

Quid Pro Quo

Said the man behind the curtain. Where is Toto when you need him? Politics does seem like OZ at times.

Just a brief explanation, something for somthing, or so they say. Evidence, money? I see no new dirt on Biden, and money for guns has happened. So we must have made a bad deal? Impeachment I say! Must have a better deal than that. A real deal would have Joe in the lockup.

Nevermind,  back to bed. It is a better place.

Triggered

Yes, I preordered Don Jr’s book. Anytime I see him on TV I seem to whole heartedly agree with him. I am so impressed that I follow him on Instagram. He is closer to the truth than CNN, NPR, NYT and all their lackeys combined.

I think his book will be how the left was irrationally triggered by his father President Donald J Trump. Personally I do not agree totally with that premise. Though I will have to wait for the book to see if that is true. Personally I think I was more triggered than the liberals that I know were triggered. They haven’t changed, they have always been the way they are. We, the Deplorable Trumpkins finally just noticed what is the natural habit of my liberal friends. Of course it helped that they labeled as us such. Made us sit up and take notice and go huh?

Take that you snowflake. We really know now how to through an insult. Haha. You know what makes a snowflake unique? No two are alike.

Actually I am not a fan of politics, just a big wast of time in my view. Yes it is important, and we should stay informed. However my mind is pretty much made up.

So If Don Jr wants this web site, he can have it. My money says he has more important things to do with his time than to mess with a silly web site, so I probably continue to periodically ramble on here. It is what I do.

Cheers

A Suggestion

It’s not very often that I make a suggestion for politicians. I stick with just a couple suggestions. Capital Gains should be taxed as income is one, and term limits is the other. Just the other day I heard a suggestion that I can also agree with. Mandatory drug testing for politicians.

If politicians can force working people to be drug tested, why can’t voters demand politicians be subject to the same rules? Do drugs, or drink, loose your job.

A simple trifecta that I will stick with.

Lucky Lizzie?

The world’s largest hate based fascist organization is in disarray. I could have also said that the world’s largest political organization is in disarray, both statements are right. However I just like to call it as I see it. Darn that pesky revolutionary Trump. He pulled off the mask and exposed the powerful that are in control for what they are.

So there is an opening at the top. Ever the opportunist, tireless Lizzie is is in the fray. As she was in the neighborhood I took the opportunity stop and listen. As she was going on about a carbon free future I had to wonder if she really knows what she is getting into.

True, it was no Trump rally, but for so early in the campaign she had a good crowd. She knows how to please the crowd and received a good number of cheers. I think she will get the nomination. Filled with dreams she is oblivious to reality, unfortunately she will come to depend on the self perpetuating machinations of the world’s largest hate based fascist organization. She seems like such a nice lady.

Why would anyone want to be in charge of such a hot mess?

Strike Out

Just a few notes on the GM strike. Not that I pity the union workers that make one hundred grand a year on average. They make more than most, and most working people would love to make that much. There used to be unions around here and they also made really good money. However the union bosses said they could make more if they went on strike. All the companies eventually folded.

Makes me wonder if the bosses had an alternative motive back then to actually put the companies out of business. Foreign intrigue maybe? The cold war was a thing, and a number of the companies could have been targets. Today what was the cold war is simply politics. Foreign intervention is commonplace and almost routine. So then, why do some of the most well paid workers go on strike? They already make more than most any other worker. They already have the very best health care coverage. Why?

It should be somewhat evident that the union leadership is very corrupt. They do not serve the union membership. They serve the party, and the party is out of power. The leaders of the party believe that to win the next election they need an economic slowdown. There is no larger sector in the manufacturing economy than the automotive sector. GM is the largest company in that sector. I am sure that the leadership is hoping for a ripple effect spreading throughout the economy.

As far as the leadership is concerned, the workers are just cannon fodder in an economic war. I am sure that the wiser of the workers realize that rainy days may be on the horizon and have prepared themselves for the possibility. The were well compensated for their time. So I have no pity for them.

This is not to say that I don’t have pity. I do. somewhere down the food chain are workers that are not as well connected as the union workers. They will be people that suffer. There are many smaller suppliers that support the jobs of the well off unions. The kid with his first job making pizza for the union man. Now he has no tips to go to the movies after buying gas. Then the retired fellow that cleans the theaters is no longer needed, so he cannot buy his grandchild a new backpack for school. Then there is the young school child who forgets her book, so she does not learn science.

Yes, there goes the economy. That is the goal.

Cheers, have a nice day.
