Got my cataract on the right side removed, and it was pronounced fine. Gotta do it all over again next week on the other side. It was easier than I anticipated. I just went to sleep, and when I woke up it was done. After that, the hardest part was the eye patch I had to wear until the next day, and the eye drops four times a day for two weeks. Bother. Then another month for the heart catheterization. Busy time.
Dumocrats are trying to tell us there wasn't a "spy" placed into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. But they DO admit there WAS an "informant" placed there. Which brings up the question: what the hell is the difference between a spy and an informant? A spy listens and learns, then informs his handlers what he has learned. An informant listens and learns and then tells his handlers what he has learned. Their jobs are IDENTICAL, so what the hell is the difference? Only SEMANTICS. A spy is an informant. An informant is a spy. There is no difference. This is only an effort, by the Dumocrats, to again fool the people who only read the headlines and don't read the whole article. They SAY he was only there to PROTECT Trump. That's a big load of stinky brown stuff. A big LIE. The Dumocrats know we know that, but they figure this gives them "plausible deniability." They can keep denying they put a spy in Trump's campaign, even though we know it is a LIE, they know we know it is a lie, and they don't care. They keep repeating the lie, over and over, until enough people DO believe the lie to make it work. This is how they operate. They BUILD IN "plausible deniability" so that, when they get caught, they can "plausibly deny it" and go right on as if they didn't get caught. The key question is, "Did they put a spy into the Hillary campaign? Not a chance. They KNEW about all her crimes, and they covered them up. (Just common sense)
Think about it. If an honest, law-abiding American found himself in a gun fight with a lawless individual who obeys NO laws, and that individual has all the bullets in his magazines as he wants, because he doesn't obey those "piffle laws" put out for the law-abiding to obey, and for him to ignore. Meanwhile, the law-abiding person only has FIVE bullets in his magazine before he has to reload--and while he's reloading, he is at a distinct disadvantage, and could even be KILLED. That's what the new governor in New Jersey wants. He wants to give a distinct advantage to those who obey NO laws in such a gun fight. He'll deny it to his dying day, but that's what he wants. You have to look at the EFFECT of his actions, not his protestations to the contrary. Many anti-gun fools say they "don't want to take away your guns," then go out and try to do just that, every day, even though they KNOW their silly laws do NOTHING to "reduce gun violence," and only INCREASE it by DISARMING the law-abiding, or saddling them with STUPID rules that put them in danger. We ask them WHY they do that, and they never answer. Or they give us the same crap they try to make us believe, every day. (NJ Legislature)
They're having a bake sale in Dan Diego and many other places, "to end gun violence." Like that's going to be any more effective than their "common sense gun laws" that do NOTHING to reduce gun violence, and instead INCREASE it by disarming law-biding people so they'll be "easy targets" for those ILLEGAL gun holders who want to victimize them. It's sponsored by "MOMS Against Guns" (or something like that), and they really think that will actually DO something to reduce gun violence. Actually, there are only a couple of things that will have ANY effect on gun violence, and they won't hear of one of them, while laws that support the other do not get enforced. They are the laws causing longer sentences for those using guns in committing a crime. They are commonly used as "bargaining chips" to get convictions in other crimes. That's just sloppy policing and prosecuting, but they don't know that. The other is allowing the law-abiding (who aren't likely to be the problem) to be armed in self defense. But they ignore the millions of ILLEGAL guns already out there and only fear the law-abiding being armed. Stupid. Armed law-abiding people CAN reduce gun crime" by killing off those who would victimize them with ILLEGAL guns. Studies show that dead thugs don't kill many people. (SD News)

Coverage might be spotty late this week because I have scheduled cataract surgery Thursday, and I don't know if I will be able to update this blog that day, or the next. But I'll be back up to speed as soon as I can, until Thursday the next week when the second cataract surgery is scheduled. I might be a little more sure of what I can do for that one. Stand by.
The Dumocrats embarked upon a "scorched Earth policy" regarding Donald Trump when he beat their hand-picked, "fixed" candidate, Hillary Clinton. Right up to 9 o'clock on election night they were supremely confident in her being elected--and then disaster struck. Soon it bcame evident that Donald Trump had beaten back their best (worst) efforts, and was now the elected president--not Hillary. So they invented the "Russian Connection" with the Trump campaign, to get him elected. They couldn't find, or manufacture any PROOF. But they insisted it was true, that they WOULD eventually find the proof they figured was there, but that they had not found it, yet. That's been their story now for more than a year. Meanwhile, they have insulted Trump, planted false stories about him in the liberal media, and nothing has worked. He has higher and higher approval ratings every day. They just don't understand why their "tried and true" scams haven't worked. Why this stupid fool has beaten them at every turn. They think he's illiterate, can't spell, nor use punctuation properly, or comprehend foreign or domestic policy.
Meanwhile, he continues to win, in just about everything he tries. The economy is booming; unemployment is at record lows; household income is up. Obama's millions of unemployed are now working if they want to. He's shredding them, They arrogantly thought they'd be rid of him in six months. Instead, he's actively "draining the swamp" and getting stronger, every day. Soon he will get to every one of them, in spite of all their efforts to stop him. Trump is not your average politician, so their usual scams don't work on him. They don't even slow him down. So now they've unearthed a porn star to claim a "one-night stand" with him more than a decade ago, and wants out of a "non disclosure agreement" she was forced to sign, but which was not signed by Trump, so she can do what? Tell the world? She's already done that, in spades. If there was such an agreement, she has already violated it in every way possible. They have nothing else, and they hope she is enough to get them back in control of Congress so they can impeach him for being Donald Trump and resume their efforts to fleece America.. They don't have anything else. (Just common sense)
Conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt is mocking the anti-gun fools by calling for a "trench coat ban" following the Santa Fe, Texas school killings, because the shooter hid his long gun under one when he entered that school with mass murder on his mind. He's doing it to mock the anti-gun fools, but I wouldn't be surprised if one or more of them started advocating it, for real. That's the way they think. Blame everything EXCEPT what's really to blame, and that is the mental state of someone would actually DO such a thing. Banning guns themselves is just as fruitless an endeavor as is banning trench coats, but the anti-gun fools will never know that. They aren't smart enough. You can't mock the anti-gun fools. Like most liberals, they take such things seriously and either get very angry, or take them up, themselves. They have no sense of humor, and no sense of the ridiculous. As with their criticizing Trump for calling MS-13 gang members "animals." They had to have heard the correction to the original story, but they continue to scream and cry about it. (Breitbart)
Every year there is a new crop of anti-gun fools going to Congress and proposing new versions of all the same old, tired, USELESS gun laws that do NOTHING to "curb gun violence." None of them ever come up with something new, and especially nothing EFFECTIVE. They have to know none of their fool laws work, but they keep making them. It doesn't matter how many times their fool laws are PROVEN to be useless, they insist on continuing to make new ones that can't be told from the old ones. One of their favorites is the "gun registry," where law-abiding gun owners register their guns while lawbreakers do NOT. How that stops gun violence is a mystery to intelligent people, but not to those ignorant anti-gun fools. Another of their favorites is the "gun-free zone," which, again, only affects the law-abiding, while the lawbreakers bring their guns and have a "field day" robbing and killing those law-abiding people who leave their guns at home. Again, they KNOW that doesn't work, but they keep making them. Are they just STUPID, or what? (Just common sense)

Among their other many giveaways to ILLEGAL aliens, They now want to give FREE HEALTHCARE to ILLEGAL aliens. Notice there is no mention of LEGAL residents there. The surest way to bankruptcy is to give things away, and California is doing it, at an increasing pace. There is some question whether Governor Moonbeam will sign the measure if it reaches his desk. But I have no doubt he will sign it. It goes right along with his love of giving away other people's money. He LOVES socialistic actions--and socialism will eventually destroy his state, as it has every place where it has been tried, eventually. As it did in Russia and is doing in many other places, including Cuba and Venezuela. In Cuba, you can't find a car that isn't a fifties model--unless you're a member of the leading elite, and are rich (a redundancy, there) Venezuela is seeing RIOTS for food, from starving people, due to socialism. Moonbeam is taking his state "where no one wants to go" if they're smart, and there are way too many people (including Moonbeam and his cohorts).in California who aren't too smart. (Just common sense)
I understand that politics has always been poisonous, The names they called Lincoln is an example. But I haven't heard much of anything recently as poisonous as the irrational insults that come President Trump's way, every day. And my first president was FDR. Insults that are unnecessary and even "over the top." An example is Jimmy Kimmel's dumb "gay jokes" and the "making fun of Melania's accent. He said, "I understand that the level of vitriol that comes (me and mine included, he admits). and is, in fact, harmful to this country." So why does he tell them? He failed to apologize for his insults to Melania though, and confined his apology to the Homosexual jokes he made. I guess gays are more important to him for some reason than the First Lady. He talks about "death threats" he (says) he has received, but fails again to mention those received by the president and his family, for nothing except BEING president. I don't believe for a minute he has received ANY "death threats." Conservatives don't threaten those who disagree with them. Liberals do, and sometimes they carry them out. (Liberty Bugle)
Just since Sandy Hook. That's what CNN's Jim Acosta is reporting, anyway. The way he justifies that is considering ANY shooting that involves more than four victims as a "mass shooting," which you can find any day in Chicago or St. Louis. That includes shootings in which no fatalities occur. Maybe even accidental firings while cleaning guns, too. Other anti-gun fools have been parroting similar numbers for a long time, and their numbers have gotten so outlandish that even some other anti-gun fools have "called them out" on them. Of course, Acosta is relying on an anti-gun outfit for HIS numbers. Does he really think if there were that many mass shootings that we would not notice? I'd think that any anti-gun fool would certainly bring them to our attention. Using the actual FBI definition for mass shootings, Mother Jones Magazine could only find FOUR mass shootings last year. Not the 355 leftists claim. (Breitbart)

Robert Mueller's "investigation" is futile. He has spent more than a year on a fruitless effort to find something, ANYTHING he can use to get Trump out of the presidency. It has cost the taxpayers $20 MILLION dollars and is no longer even PRETENDING to look for evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 election, to help Trump get elected. It is now concentrating on finding ANY "evidence" they can find that has any chance of "getting Trump." Meanwhile, they IGNORE sure evidence of collusion with Russia on the part of the HILLARY campaign. He has hired ALL anti-Trump people to work for his taxpayer-funded campaign to ruin Trump, and has come up with NOTHING except a couple of minor "process crimes" by some of Trump's FORMER associates, after ruining them financially. This is the biggest, most expensive "witch hunt" in the history of the United States, and needs to END. Trump can end it quickly by cutting off Mueller's funding, and he can do it. There's more than good reason to do so. And he should. No matter how loudly the Dumocrats whine and cry. (Just common sense)
A "coalition" of 64 Dumocrats sent a letter to President Trump to fire EPA Director Pruitt, citing "unethical behavior," "wasteful use of taxpayer money." and many other things they seem to be doing themselves, but resent when conservatives do them. And of course, it is Dumocrats who are complaining, since they are the ones who ARE "the swamp," and thus are Trump's targets while he "cleans up the swamp." Of course, they're fighting back. Every time Trump does away with another of their misguided and expensive regulations, they scream and whine like stuck pigs. They don't want Trump to succeed in his efforts to "drain the swamp," because then they would lose their power base, and the access to much money that entails. But more importantly, the POWER! They've had it all their own way for too many years, and Trump is on his way to ending it all--and they hate that. So they're GOING to complain, and try to put obstacles in his way every time they think they can. But it's not going to work. Trump is not your "average politician." He is a resolute man who keeps his promises, unlike most politicians. (Daily Caller)
Rahm Emmanuel, current mayor of gun-violence plagued Chicago, has declared his "sanctuary city" Trump-free, meaning that President Trump is not welcome there. Though I don't know how he can keep him out. At the same time, he has invited that dictator-run outfit, the United Nations in to help him get rid of the gun violence. Gun violence that he has made worse with his stupid "sanctuary city" policies that have allowed unknown numbers of gang members in to cause MORE gun violence, as they fight over "turf." How he expects the UN to do anything but INCREASE the gun violence as their denizens go about shooting gang members, as well as their own bunch of innocent bystanders who get caught in their crossfire. The UN, of course, is not concerned with our Constitution, specifically the Second Amendment which, I suppose, is what Rahm wants. They can make all kinds of "regulations" he can claim they have a right to do, in SPITE of the Constitution, to which they are not bound. (CBS Local)

What is going ON? Why is it that, since the school shooting in Denver that killed 13 people, most of them students, there have been so many shootings in schools, all of a sudden, since then? Why does it seem that kids who were "bullied" suddenly become KILLERS? I was bullied when I was in grade school. there was one guy who kept after me all the time, and a gang of other kids who were after me all the time too, and I didn't get a gun and go into my school and start killing people. I ended my bullying by taking my dad's advice and STARTING a fight with my principle bully, and showing him I would no longer be an "easy mark," win or lose.
That, apparently also convinced that gang to stay away from me, too. So there are other solutions to the "bullying" problem, and one is to fight back, win or lose, convincing the bully that, even if he wins, it will not be without a cost to him. That bully went home with blood coming out of his ear. One solution to school shootings is to get rid of the "no-gun zone" in all schools. A "no-gun zone" ANYWHERE is an "engraved invitation" to disturbed people to "come in and shoot us." Every mass shooting I know of was done in a "no-gun zone." Shooters SEEK OUT such places in which to do their dirty work.
Criminals LOVE them because they KNOW the law-abiding most likely won't be armed, and able to defend themselves. No-gun zones are the biggest culprit in mass shootings, everywhere. But not the only one. It's not the fault of the guns, NOR the ease of getting them," that anti-gun fools insist. They will be easy to get ILLEGALLY in all places where they are BANNED--as has been PROVEN by a study checking the murder rates in places where guns ARE banned, where they uniformly RISE. Proving conclusively that banning guns does NOT work. Anti-gun fools dispute that, but they cannot answer it truthfully, so they LIE to promote their wish to disarm ALL Americans for their own purposes.
They HAVE to know their laws have never stopped a single shooting, but they persist. Which means to me they have an ulterior motive that does not include logic. We need to find out what there is in the MINDS of potential shooters so we can do something about THAT. Making guns illegal to own is STUPID. It just doesn't work. It's counter productive. It gets people KILLED. But that's always the FIRST "knee-jerk" reaction for the anti-gun fools. (New York Times)
A Minnesota store is saying that, "In only two years, Trump solved global warming." Liberals, of course, are infuriated--as they usually are when somebody does something to illustrate their stupidity. Yes, Trump did "solve global warming." By recognizing the FACT that it is a scam--a scam that has made $millions for its most verbal promoter, Al Gore, and lots of others who tout it, including Barack Hussein Obama, and refusing to do likewise. Many individuals, and politicians have adopted this scam as a way of gaining more power, influence, and MONEY, in spite of the fact that the world has NOT been "warming" for almost 20 years--a fact that forced Al to change the very NAME of his swindle to "climate change," so he could attribute ANY change in the climate, anywhere, to his swindle. His acolytes are so desperate to force belief in their scam that they want to make it a CRIME to disagree. This in a country where people are GUARANTEED that right, constitutionally. I guess if you have no cogent arguments, you have to shut up your critics. (The Blaze)
Nancy Peelosi (Minority Leader in the House) is either ignorant about gun laws, or is simply lying. Recently she said, "Far from making Americans safer, this deadly, extreme Republican bill would make it legal for more dangerous and untrained people to carry loaded, hidden guns in more public places and would inexplicably try to make the weakest and most dangerous state concealed-carry laws the law of the land in all 50 states," she said. This, of course, ignores all the people with ILLEGAL guns out there, and that those people are ALL untrained and dangerous. More people with LEGAL guns are likely to be TRAINED in their use. She ASSUMES none of them will be trained, and that the very EXISTENCE of a gun on their person makes them dangerous to other than ILLEGALLY armed thugs. This is patent IGNORANCE on her part. Like most anti-gun fools, she is convinced that people who obey NO laws will somehow obey a law that says they can't be armed. Only the law-abiding obey her laws, and they are NOT the problem. There is more evidence of her ignorance in the linked article, (Gun Watch)

One of the Russian companies Mueller "indicted"has come forward and DEMANDED he produce the "evidence" he says proves they did wrong, and he can't. It doesn't exist. We all know a good prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich, and this Russian company is Mueller's "sandwich." As with the government's use of "National Security Letters" (which are nothing but something written by one of the "investigators" with no force in law) in place of warrants to DEMAND documents on just the WORD of one of their "investigators" that wrongdoing is "suspected," which has NO force in law, and is just an intimidating ploy, they have called Mueller's bluff. He can't produce ANY evidence, so he has to drop the charges. And when he does, his entire "investigation" is compromised. He has long since admitted, just by his actions, that he can't prove the Russians interfered with our election in collusion with the Trump campaign, and now one of his claimed "successes" has blown up in his face. If Trump doesn't declare his "investigation" a dud and strip him of his financing so he can no longer waste millions of dollars of taxpayer money in his "witch hunt," I'll be surprised. (CNN)
People are wondering why airplanes and helicopters are going down, killing so many soldiers, why ships are running into each other at sea, and why military trucks break down with such regularity. The answer is simple, which is why it escapes so many. It is the Obama campaign to DEFUND the military. As their financing ebbed, the military was not able to buy parts with which to repair their equipment, and thus, there were many squadrons with only a few aircraft able to fly because of that lack of parts--and the ones they did try to fly failed, for the same reason, killing people and costing us millions of dollars. Trucks and cars and electronic equipment broke down, and some parts failures caused deadly crashes. Pilots were unable to get enough flying time to maintain their airworthiness. Lack of proper training and equipment failure caused ships to run into other ships--accidents that could have been avoided if their equipment actually worked, and their people had been properly trained. And it's all Obama's fault. It is getting better now that Trump has seen to increasing the military's funding so they can do those needed repairs, while properly training their personnel. And he's getting criticized for it by the liberals, of course. They don't want to see things getting better. It's bad for them. (Just common sense)
