THE MINIMUM WAGE…..RAISE IT….BUT

29 Aug

I  believe that any person over the age of 18 working in an established business should receive a wage of at least $ 12.00 an hour.  The current less than $ 8.00 an hour is just incompatible with the ever diminishing value of the dollar.  BUT….I believe this should be law only if the labor unions will renounce the part of their contracts with industry which uses the  minimum wage as a direct factor in their own hourly pay.  Add $ 5.00 to the wage of a fast foods worker, and the unskilled assembly line worker (probably making close to $ 40.00 an hour) gets bumped up that $5.00 also.  The resulting increase may add only a dime to the price of a hamburger, but would add hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to the price of an American made automobile. 

My sympathies are with the much underpaid employee, especially when there are no compensating benefits such as medical insurance.  In the 1960s I was able to hire a college student to help in my own business for the going rate of $1.00 an hour.  I always paid $2.00.

CHANGE THE COLORADO STATE LOGO? PERHAPS ITS SEAL ALSO?

6 Aug

Little wonder the ACLU and the “politically correct” crowd haven’t demanded a change in The Great Seal of the State of Colorado by now. Their ranting in California caused that state to alter its symbol many years ago because (Heaven forbid) there was a very small cross in it. Not only does Colorado’s state seal bear the motto “NIL SINE NUMINE”, which is Latin for “NOTHING WITHOUT THE DIVINE WILL”, it also depicts an eye in the middle of a triangle which symbolizes GOD. As Colorado drifts ever leftward, will we be seeing torch bearing crowds descending upon our government buildings to enforce the very twisted view that the “separation of state and church” means that any hint of religion in government must be expurgated? Or perhaps, sanity will return to this great state and its voters will realize that the support of the Democrat Party and the “transformation of America” into another failed GODLESS centrally planned society is not the future they would want for their children.

l ADMIT IT….CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL

27 Jun

CLIMATE CHANGE IS ABSOLUTELY REAL….HONESTLY…NO DOUBT ABOUT IT….it’s been going on for eons, didn’t you notice? The phenomenon is called nature, and that is why we have hot days, cold days, moderate days….year in and year out.

BUT WAIT…THERE IS MORE. We now have a president who is going to stop weather change….wow….and I thought he was only an incompetent M-Word. I guess if in his megalomaniac mind he can do it, and his multitudinous followers believe it will be so, we had best get in line to request just what that change should be. The following is my choice. What is yours?
1) Perpetual 72 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Moderate rain every fourth day
3) Cloudy skies…just enough to make nice sunsets

All in all a pretty simple request of the man whose abilities would exceed those of God.

IT IS A RACIST REMARK….IF

25 Jun

IT IS A RACIST REMARK when spoken by one who is not a Negro in reference to a person of color. IT IS NOT RACIST to either say or write the word when not directed at another person or persons. To pretend that the use of the word in any way (unless one is black), and to “un-offensively” replace the actual word with “N-Word” is to deny that the word even exists in spite of its very prevalent use in the black community. Public personalities are so cowed by uttering the word in any way other than the politically correct (and Pavlovian activated) manner, one must wonder why the H –Word for whites ,the K- Word for Jews, the S- Word for Hispanics, the W-Word for Italians, the M-Word for the Irish, the C- Word for Orientals does not cause one’s heart to race and one’s breath to gasp equally so upon hearing the complete word uttered or in print.
The other evening I watched an old, and really corny, movie on TV, wherein the N-Word was used repeatedly, and not just by the lead (black) actor. I have not yet seen rioting in the streets in front of the TV channel that aired the movie: Blazing Saddles. Am I a racist because I failed to immediately switch channels….to a more contemporary movie which would have bombarded me with the F-Word which I find much more disgusting than the above reference word. The F-Word of course appears to be politically correct, in spite of how totally offensive it is to me and to many more refined persons. Frankly, the next time someone says “F— You” in my face he is going to get a face full of knuckles. At the same time, if one calls me a Gringo or Honky I doubt that my hackles will be up in any way. I am offended, however, being referred to as a racist, or a right wing extremist, or any one of the leftist slurs cast at those of my political persuasion. Still, no knuckles in the face offense because I recognize how brainwashed those who use those terms have become.
I have written before about how we are being conditioned not only as to the words we physically utter, but to how we think: my reference was to the classic case of political correctness being the Nazi “Hiel Hitler” salute, and to how one’s failure to give it, even to a passing stranger on the street (of Nazi Germany) could result in one’s incarceration.
In a previous post I did use the N-Word, asking if there was a better description of rioting and looting black youth in Chicago. I received only shocked commentary that I would even use the particular word in print….but no better term offered me to describe the low class ethnicities looting stores and attacking innocent white people. Perhaps Black Trash would have been more appropriate, keeping in mind that in the Clinton Administration the term White Trash was used to describe a young woman who had been “abused” by that occupant of the White House. If there is white trash in America, then is there not black trash and will the term become the BT-Word?
Yes, the word I used was nigger, and I hope you haven’t gone blind now that you have seen the actual word in print. If you are still reading, let me make my point. Though I remain respectful of all those who deserve respect, I will not have my thoughts or the words I use be controlled by an outside source. To control how one thinks is to control one’s mind…..and one’s physical being. It’s called enslavement.

RECRUITING NOW…..MARCHERS, DRUMMERS, BAGPIPERS….PATRIOTS

COLORADO VOLUNTEER MARCHING SOCIETY
Marching In Love In Trust In Affection…For America
Stan McWhinnie, March Coordinator

The Goal: To create a PEACEFUL presence of hundreds of dedicated patriots marching
with military precision bearing non threatening “arms”….broomsticks, fly swatters, feather dusters, toilet plungers…in Brigades, each marcher shouldering his or her “weapon”.
Why assemble in this fashion? “Tea Parties” have numbers, but pose no appearance of
disciplined strength..
Why march with household items? Because, there cannot be an excuse for the government, federal or state, to interfere with the Constitutional right of assembly under the pretext of the marchers posing a threat to civil order.
Legislation is fully in the works to disarm America. Those who would make us an unarmed, and subservient, population must know that there will be effective opposition to their plans.
I believe Washington to be lost; therefore any effective defense of this Republican form of government and its Constitution will have to originate state by state, but in a peaceful manner, unless and until the “transformation of America” becomes intolerable.
A Colorado Marching “Society” consisting of hundreds, if not thousands, of citizens, with groups in cities throughout the state will send a strong message to those who would deprive us of our Constitutional rights and protections under the 1st , 2nd and 10th Amendments.
I would hope to see the groups marching in parades and other public events with drums and flags and banners; at the same time disseminating information and urging other Patriots to join our ranks.
Further, as in the days of our Founding Fathers, marchers should be ready to assemble on very short notice, and be practiced in their formations. In the extreme situation, to defend our homes and families, what marchers bring with them is optional.

MENTAL HEALTH EXCUSE TO CONFISCATE GUNS

25 Mar

GUN CONFISCATION WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED AS A MENTAL HEALTH MEASURE.

 

It has already begun.  When you see a medical practitioner for any reason, they are required to ask if you are or have been depressed….and “do you have a gun in the house”.   Okay; seems fair that mentally disturbed people with guns present a potential danger to the public.  Big question is:  who is to determine the mentally unstable amongst us.  Let me surmise that the Leftists being in control, as they are, and because they readily and consistently point out those “crazies”, those “wing-nuts”, those “extremists” when referring to Constitution-loving, anti-Marxist, God-fearing, true patriots and defenders of this Republic…..will be pointing at you and me, my fellow conservatives, as the great danger.

I have a greater concern about the mental stability of those who daily arm themselves as part of their normal public attire.  Yes, I refer to our departments of “Public Safety”…the cops.  I personally admire those who have chosen police work as a life’s profession; in the past I used to hire them for off duty protection and enjoyed their company.  I  know that the greater majority of them are worthy of the trust we have placed in them to maintain an orderly society…..BUT…I also have a fear of the sometimes brutal control they exercise.

In Nazi Germany, it wasn’t just the Gestapo that “controlled” the population and arrested the dissidents (and the Jews)…..it was also the German Police, the same police that were not even members of the Nazi Party (The National SOCIALIST Workers Party) prior the takeover by Hitler and his gang of thugs.

I recall my psychology class at UCLA (early 1950s) where the professor pointed out that in many ways there was little difference between the psychological makeup of a cop…and that of a criminal.  At the time I was very offended by the implication, but I fear that perhaps, due to the “trigger happy” actions of the police we too often read and hear about, he may have had a valid point.

SO I SUGGEST……that a first step in providing a safer environment for ourselves and our children, would be to perform a very thorough and up-to-date psychological evaluation of our local police and sheriffs to determine just which of those perhaps should not be toting a firearm
