Jeff Sessions is an Idiot


Sessions has to go. It is as simple as that. His stand on marijuana has the real potential to cost Donald Trump the election in 2020.

Marijuana shouldn’t have been made illegal in the first place. It is a gift to mankind from God. Sessions stand on marijuana cost him my personal endorsement. I no longer stand with or for Jeff Sessions. He must be removed from office immediately.

Of all the problems this nation has, marijuana isn’t one of them. I am a life long pot smoker and I’ve been smoking steadily for over 40 years. Now that I am in the twilight of my life I don’t smoke it anymore just to get high but to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis. It is the only substance that works not in minutes but in seconds without any unusual side effects.

I will continue to smoke pot and if pot becomes difficult for me to get I will not support Trump in 2020. Call me a traitor if you want but if I’m going to have to suffer I’m going to make dam sure that the people responsible for my suffering suffer as well.

This is where I draw my line in the sand.

Dear President Trump.  I have supported you since the beginning but I will not support this. Most of what the government does has very little effect on me personally but this is personal. Sessions has to go.


The Money Pit of Christian Church


I have been Episcopal all of my life. My stepfather was Roman Catholic and my mother was Lutheran and bringing up the children Episcopal was their compromise. I have never been to a Lutheran service but I have been to many Catholic services for 2 reasons. First Catholics and Episcopalian’s are very close and their services almost identical and as a consequence shared summer camps and second because members of my stepfathers family and even my real fathers family were all Catholic.

We just didn’t go to church, church was a part of the family. All our friends went to church. So I sang in the choir until I could be an alter boy which was a pretty big deal for a young lad in a small town. As an alter boy I went to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City every year with hundreds of alter boys from around the state. Magnificent. If you can’t feel god in St. Patrick’s Cathedral you never will.

We partook in all the bake sales and Christmas plays and summer camps with the Catholics who as kids we viewed with a certain amount of suspicion. Every Saturday night we sat on the floor in front of the TV with the old man polishing our shoes for church the next morning (he as an army MP for 7 years) and young boys went to church in a suit. I had 2 suits one brown and one dark blue. As is proper.

I hated going through the communion process when I was 14. The schooling was at night during the school week when I could have been in the snow. There were tests and everything just like school. But I made it through and everyone was so proud because I was the oldest and I had become the first child in my family to receive communion.

It wasn’t long after that, that the church shook my faith so hard that I believed myself to be at the very least Agnostic for the next couple of decades. I was sitting in church one Sunday listening to the fathers sermon when he started going on about how each person owed the church 20% of everything they made. This was 1975 and I was completely blown away by the sermon. That Summer I began reading both bibles old and new from beginning to end. By the time I had gotten to the new testament I was sure I was and Atheist. This is how strongly the fathers sermon affected me.

I have since grown up a bit and have a different view of the church and it’s membership. Much like mankind the church is flawed and imperfect and to expect anything else is just a delusion.  As Jesus said in the Dead Sea Scrolls, “You will not find the Kingdom of God in a mansion made of wood and stone.” Or something to that effect.

Yet even with my renewed faith and outlook on the church I am still pretty suspicious of the churches finances. I see mega churches all over the country and yet people are homeless. Can the church not house these people? Isn’t that what their followers are giving their money to the church for? Or is it just some kind of entertainment that you pay for each week when monster trucks aren’t in town?

The church used to be responsible for taking care of the poor but now that job has been commandeered by the government and its ever expanding power over the people. Still the church is taking in much more money now than when they had a civic responsibility to care for the down trodden. The church makes billions. So where is the well kept housing for the poor that the church is maintaining for the homeless?

Now to be fair some small churches do this or do the best they can to help the downtrodden. But football sized luxurious theaters that cost millions is nothing the Lord Jesus Christ would have ever condoned and the faithful should know that without being told by me. Are there not empty fields and city streets in which to preach hallelujah to Gods children?

As an American and stepping out of the role of the faithful I have to say that this seems like an abuse of the exemptions our tax codes provide for places of worship. Religions get a free ride because they help our poor but if they aren’t going to be spending their profits on the poor, why should they get a tax exemption? Fine, charlatans fleece the idiots for all I can but pay your taxes. You owe that at the very least to a country that allows you to pull out of this parking lot after giving your sermon in a Bentley and not at the end of a rope.

If the church does good works then they deserve the exemptions they get but if they are spending their parishioners money on luxuries then they need to pay their taxes like any other business. Because if they are sporting Armani suits …. they are a business.


Females Mind Your Place


There will never be equality among the sexes until one thing happens and it’s all on the women to make it happen. What is that one thing? Women being accountable and accepting the consequences for what comes out of their mouths. That’s right women have big mouths that spew out nasty things and are almost never held accountable for it. Like children.

I’m no great fool. If I see another man who is clearly much larger and more muscular that I am, I’m not going to be in a hurry to get into an altercation with him. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t nor am I saying that I wouldn’t necessarily instigate an altercation with him. I have a bad temper and there are some things and some people that just rub me the wrong way. But if I do start some shit with someone who is much bigger and more muscular than I am, I don’t try to be the victim after I get my ass beat. I rolled the dice and I lost tough shit.

Me going up against some body building Kung Foo expert is pretty much what it is like for any woman to go up against any man. Don’t kid yourself ladies just because some guy let you beat on him doesn’t mean that at any moment he couldn’t turn around and give you a beating like there’s no tomorrow. He’s letting you hit him. White knights make me wanna puke but that’s another story.

What kind of an idiot goes up against someone who has the potential to really mess them up in the first place except for drunks who see themselves as invincible no matter how many times they take a beat down. And yet most women push their men’s buttons. They do this to see how far they can push him. Almost like a sport. They chat amongst themselves about how they do this to their men. Every once in a while one of them pushes it too far. Sometimes much too far. And then they blame their man. This is insanity.

The truth is ladies you’ll never be equal to men. We are just simply better than you. You lose control at the drop of a hat and we maintain ours long after you’ve lost yours. We are to sigil bearers of qualities like work, patience, tenacity, ethics, morality, accountability, honor, service …. these are not often qualities women hold dear at least not in action. We are better than you in our short lives because we have to be and you have been taking us for granted for far too long.

Everyone has their place and their role to play. You wanna be a man then accept and embrace being treated like one. But until you can show that you can do that 100% …. know your place. Real men have no interest in becoming feminized so that you can be equal and you wouldn’t want them anyway.

You want assholes like me.

We are your teachers, protectors, enablers, your daddy and trust me when I tell you … you don’t want our job.

The Reptilian Menace


According to David Icke humans are being manipulated by a group of inter-dimensional beings who can shape shift into reptilian humanoids. These beings feed off of negative human emotions and control mankind through their mastery of technology making biological changes to humans and getting greedy humans to do their bidding to keep tensions and emotions between humans high and negative.

I had given some thought to spending this op-ed on criticizing David Icke and pointing out the techniques he uses to get people to believe this and some of his other theories. But what if he’s right? I’ve witnessed enough weird things in my life that I’m pretty sure that if tomorrow morning the President introduced the world to an alien diplomat I’d just shrug my shoulders and carry on. So why criticize an obviously smart man who in theory could be right when maybe the bigger point is why have humans worshiped reptiles.

On every continent and among every people there exists at least one generation (likely many more) who worshiped reptiles. Large lizards likely inspired tales of flying fire breathing dragons and throughout mans existence the images of snakes have adorned the most holy of buildings the relics. From Adam and Eve to your local tattoo parlor snakes have been at the center of human existence. I bet there are a lot more snake tattoos than there are dog and cat tattoos combined. Even my ex-wife has a tattoo of a snake on her thigh (which should have been a major red flag for me at the time).

So why do humans hold reptiles to such a high regard?


Snakes can be anywhere at anytime. They are very sneaky. It always seems like they are looking at you and they have a cat like attitude. Many reptiles are also highly poisonous and can kill something several times its own size with a single bite. Many are edible, make nice clothing items and some can even be halfway decent pets. Why did the Egyptians worship cats? See the similarities? Yes you can eat and wear cats and yes cats also have mystical properties like their nine lives might indicate.

So clearly the reasons to worship reptiles by simple people are many and those reasons are confirmed by the worship of other species with similar attributes. Just like a cat reptiles are quite aloof and always appear to be plotting some scheme to control the world.

David Icke bases a lot of his theories on ancient writings and images and he bases his Reptilian Overlords theory on a preponderance of evidence collected from civilizations around the globe that show humans worshiping reptiles. This is not proof of anything other than the fact the humans or at least simple humans, tend to turn things that are mysterious to them into symbols of spirituality. Could it be that the simple explanation about the very nature of human beings is to explain mankind’s obsession with reptiles or could it be that there is an inter dimensional group of aliens who can transform themselves into reptilian humanoids and control the emotions of all humans so they can feed on that emotion?

If your answer is the latter I’ll let Red Foreman help you out.




Useful Idiots


Much like every year I have to spend one evening a year at Christmas time in a B restaurant with a large group of liberals and play nice. Well play as nice as I am capable of playing. I pretty much put the CEO of the company in his place this year but there is only so much bullshit I can tolerate.

As I was sitting there in my Ben Stein garb (a suit with sneakers) astounded as to how these people could possibly harbor the political beliefs that they do. Don’t they live in the same world as everyone else? Last year several of them came up to me in complete shock that Trump won the election. Really? What do these people do with their computers play Farm Town all day?

As I sat wondering if the weed I had in my pocket was going to be enough to get me through the evening I swore I heard what for my ears was a bright light. Ah thank goodness I was sitting close to Kirk. My kind of obsessed businessman. And then there was another beam of light for my ears Steve who is also a businessman and also has a realistic view of the world. Why were these guys different from the bleeding heart snowflakes in the rest of the dining hall? What made all 3 of us so different from the rest.

Ding Ding Ding!

Have you ever had one of those moments where a million little pieces of a puzzle suddenly all came together? I had one of those. What made the 3 of us different from the others in the room was the level of struggle our side endured as opposed to their side. When you’re in business for yourself every single day is a struggle. You have to deal with realities employees never even think of. For the average worker their struggle pretty much ends at the end of the job interview. An employee gets paid every Friday or every 1st and 15th of the month. The guy who is self employed doesn’t know if he’s gonna get paid. Both these groups view the world through their own condition.

Employees tend to be much less focused than the self employed. Employees tend to be most focused on whether it is 5pm yet. Instead of struggling every day many if not most employees just kinda float through their workdays and perhaps putting a little extra effort in on Wednesday (hump-day) to make up for coming into work half asleep on Monday and spending half the morning getting yourself coffee or in the toilet. The self employed individual comes out of the starting gate early ready to rock and roll because he must. There’s no guaranteed paycheck for him on Friday.

It is easy to spend someone elses money when you don’t really understand where money comes from and how hard it is to get. It is easy to think that there is something wrong with someone who has a lot more than you do when you don’t, won’t, or can’t see their struggle and their effort. It is easier to live in a dream world when your own struggles are limited and focus is not a major requirement of your life.

The first time I saw the world for what it really was, was at 39 when every single day was a struggle to survive. As an investment broker I had no salary. I did have what they called a draw which was $300 a week to cover my smokes and other minor expenses which was actually a small weekly loan that had to be paid off in full as soon as I closed a deal and the clients check cleared. A good broker in a high risk investment opportunity makes 3-5 deals a month assuming the leads are reasonably good. If they are not he can lose his car, home and job in the blink of an eye. Most good brokers will be in the office from the moment the door is opened until it is locked for the evening (12+ hours) in a business that requires an incredible amount of focus for the entire workday. That’s just a tad different than doing a 9-5 and taking a hour long lunch. I almost always ate lunch at my desk and almost always worked through eating taking bites while the phone rang. I became very successful in that industry.

But in seeing the world for what it was and the people for what they truly were my entire outlook on life changed. Yeah I had a Mercedes S class and a BMW 5 series and why the hell not. I earned them. I busted my butt while others were watching TV. I researched every single day trying to increase my revenue not staring blindly at Wolf Blitzer congratulate himself and his coworkers. In fact, as I was brokering and trading on an international level I learned very quickly that American news sources were complete rubbish. Had I depended on the MSM for my information I would have gone broke. So I learned to research the news not just have it fed to me.

People are easily manipulated. I know I used to make a very nice living manipulating them. The people who are the easiest to manipulate are the ones who are the most ignorant. Ignorance is a choice just like being well informed is a choice. Most of the people at the Christmas party were incredibly ignorant on important topics. Because of their ignorance they are completely incapable of comprehending complex social and economic issues so they tend to side with something simple that sounds good to them. Empathy and charity sound good especially when the cost of such things comes from someone else.

This is the core of liberalism. Well meaning ignorant people who live not in a world of their design but of one created and maintained by others. They want more but they aren’t willing to work for it and struggle for it and take risks for it. And while some part of them admires the people who do, another darker side of them resents those who are willing to do what they are not. Because of that resentment they harbor ideals that sound good and maybe even punish those who struggle more than they do, and succeed. How easy is it to manipulate such people? Tug at their “heart” strings and they will follow you anywhere even to their own destruction. They are of the pool where the term “useful idiots” comes from.

Forgive them Lord for they know not that they walk with the devil.

Trump News Network Changes Ahead

banner TNN

Pretty soon it will be 2018 and with the turn of a new year we sometimes make resolutions that we hope change our lives for the better. TNN will be making some changes in the new year that won’t make us any more popular (probably just the opposite) but coincides with my vision of what this organization should be.

Our presidents first year is almost over and he has had unprecedented success as the leader of the Free World. It’s in my opinion time to stop gloating and get to the business of voicing our concerns, preparing for the midterm elections and educating the public in areas of politics, economics, history, science, rational psychology etc.

To date I have been making a habit of adding entertainment to these sites. There is going to be less of that and I may phase that out completely. My thoughts on adding such things to date was to remind Americans of a better America and a reminder of our traditions and culture. Only a great fool would refuse to “move backwards” if what was done previously worked better than what has been going on for much too long. But that part of the programming hasn’t turned out as well as I hoped and frankly I don’t want people following my sites for the entertainment. Hopefully the news and information will be entertaining enough.

I’ve also decided that in 2018 I’ll be writing for the sites a lot more than I have in the past and I may actually decide to write proper essays instead of the garbage I’m been puking out for the last 3 years. I don’t care if you read them or not. I’m not asking for money to run my sites so you can put up with my prose.

In the end we’ll be posting less but with more focused content. This means you’ll want to make daily visits to the page as opposed to just waiting for things to pop up on your feed.

Anywho you’ve been warned. Happy New Year.

How Taxes Really Work


Suppose that every day, ten men go out for lunch and the bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men ate lunch in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve ball.

“Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily lunch by $20.00.” So lunch for the ten men would now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free. But what about the other six men? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his fair share?

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to eat his lunch.

So the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by a higher percentage the poorer he was, to follow the principle of the tax system they had been using, and he proceeded to work out the amounts he suggested that each should now pay.

And so the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% off).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% off).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28% off).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% off).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% off).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% off).
Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat lunch for free. But, once outside the bar, the men began to compare the amount they got off.

The sixth man said, “I only got $1 off out of the $20 while the tenth man got $10 off!”

“Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only got $1 off, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more benefit than me!”

“That’s true!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $10 off, when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!”

“Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison, “we didn’t get anything at all. This new tax system exploits the poor!”

The nine men surrounded the tenth and told him they they were angry that he got so much off while they each got very little.

The next day the tenth man didn’t show up for lunch, so the nine sat down and had their lunchs without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money amongst all of them for even half of the bill!

And that is how our tax system works. The people who already pay the highest taxes will naturally get the largest benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start eating overseas, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
