Like/Love/Respect

There was once a very good man, at least in my eyes, named Robert Bowne.  Bob was my father, and I tell most everyone that as my father if he had a preference between me liking, loving or respecting him he chose the latter.  Most of those who read this will not know the television series “Father Knows Best” nor will you understand the concept.

A child loves their parents, and for that matter even likes them most of the time, until they become teenagers.  At that point in the child’s life they do not understand how ‘someone so old can be so dumb’.  So they begin rebel.  Love held them close, not respect.  Like made them listen, not respect.

That concept is so very rarely taught to children over the last few decades that we have elected “leaders” on the premise of “likability”.  Look where that has gotten us.  Everyone “liked’ the 1st mulatto (look it up if you do not know what it means) to run for the office of President.  Hell, there were many that “loved” him.  As Barbara Walters stated he was the second coming (of what I do not know), the new messiah.

The over tanned white boy was given the Nobel Peace Prize for nothing.  This is how much he was “liked/loved”.  Where was the respect for this wannabe?  He had not accomplished anything other than being elected.  He was not a great orator nor a great leader.  He WAS liked.  NOT RESPECTED.  We are now at the precipice of the re-expansion of Russia, the continued use of chemical weapons in Syria, a Nuclear Iran, the continuation of the WORST recovery in American History, the re-birth of the Taliban and al Qadea, turmoil in Egypt, the loss of Iraq, the utter disrespect (there is that word sneaking in again) from our allies (Canada, England, Germany, et al), and the pushing of the belief that everything is okay as long as someone can pay for you to do it.

God help us!  We are faltering as a people.  We are looking for politicians that we like!  Not those that hold true to their word, that stand up on principle and do not kowtow to the every whim of those around them.

I always liked Howard Baker (look him up).  I appreciated the candor of James Traficant (look him up)  Neither of these men stood by and followed.  The Democrats need a Howard Baker in the Senate (could be Joe Manchin) and God knows that the Republicans need more Louie Gohmerts,  Trey Gowdys and Ted Cruz.

We need more respect in office and less touchy feely like/love warm and fuzzies.  Get some intestinal fortitude (guts, balls, whatever you want to call it) and start to fight for what is right not convenient.  Forget the media.  Forget reelection and do what need to be done.

Now is the Time

Eight years, that is all it took for the Whigs to disappear and the Republicans to get their foot in the door of the Presidency.  Hell, the last Whig to hold office wasn’t even elected.  Millard Fillmore took office after Zachary Taylor died.

The next two elections placed Democrats in office…then Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican to run in a heads up battle for President, won the election.  So here we are today.  Four (4) short years after the start of the Tea Parties (there are way too many to mention).  We have a Republican Party that refuses to “dance with the one who brung ya”  Between John Boehner, Peter (I hate Muslim terrorists but love Irish terrorists) King, Fred Upton, Mike Rogers, Kevin McCarthy, John McCain, John Cornyn, Thad Cochran, Lindsey Graham and last but not least Bob Corker the Tea Part, and all Conservatives for that matter, have been thrown under the bus so many times that you cannot tell the battle scars from fights with liberals from those with “moderate” Republicans.

Hell, I wrote John McCain a letter in 2000 telling him to get the hell out of MY party.  It took 14 years for the GOP in Arizona to realize what a flake he is.  Now, we have him helping Harry Reid keep as many of the GOP Senators from speaking up for Americans.  We have a “wannabe King” at 1600 PA Ave. and we need to start to teach Barack Obama and all of the moderates a lesson.

Start this way.  All of us that are not self employed need to go to our employers and change our W-4’s to 13 exemptions.  This is not illegal as long as you have 85% of your taxes paid by 12/21/2014.  Do NOT file exempt!  First and foremost this will keep more money in your pocket.  Take the difference and put it in a savings account.  Once you have done this increase your 401k to the max.  This will, in very short order, start to starve the PIGS (Politically Incorrigible Gluttonous Sleazebags).  Take the money, the PIGS food, and they will start to see that something is wrong.  Keep it from them long enough and they will start to change their habits.  This will starve the I.R.S., the politicians, the bureaucracy, and the “king”.

Next, start a recall against Harry Reid, John McCain and Lisa Murkowski. Keep Romney’s son away from Mike Lee and Mulvaney, or any other moderate, away from Tim Scott.  These five senators all have Republican Governors to assist in fixing the moderate problem.  The only problem with this scenario is McCain could run as a Democrat (remember Arlen).

See, you starve the PIGS, change his habits then you change (clean up) the pigsty.  With these few changes we can rewrite the tax code, give Barack Obama what he really wants (to be poor and share HIS wealth with others less fortunate…hell throw all of those that want to share the wealth together and give them what they want), remove the education department and give “teaching” back to the local communities, Cut the Dept. of Labor, the EPA, FTC and start to ensure that regulations are not passed without the CONSENT of Congress.

You do these few things, it really is not that much once you starve the PIGS, and we can grow the economy, grow our knowledge, grow our fortunes and once again, return to a true Republic.
