The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 KJV
After eight miserable years of Marxist rule the chains are finally coming off. We will soon see decisions being made by what is best for Americans rather than for whichever atheistic cult has the most political power. We will see the end of a President more interested in punishing America than helping her so Barack Hussain can get back to organizing protests and rallies like the ones he is doing for Trumps inauguration.
The beauty of the founding fathers is they provided a cure for the runaway power of a despot in the form of the election. Not only that, they saw that large cities like New York and Boston could not overpower small towns and communities which would hold all the seats of power so they invented the Electoral College. This gave the farm states a proportional power to ensure them a voice even though they did not have as large a population. This is how the concept of the United States was formed making each state a separate country united under one flag.
This election we witnessed that brilliance manifested as Hillary won the cities and especially the metrosexuals of the NY corridor and the Los Angeles/Tijuana beltway.
The problem she had is she did not connect with ordinary Americans like she did with the ultra-liberals in LA, but who does or would want to. Now we have someone who represents real Americans and real American business. The excitement in the business community is real as people feel a real recovery is coming and that scares the DNC more than Reagan.
President Trump needs to stay focused on the economy now more than ever. While Obozo throws his toys and tries to destroy the Country one last time, Donald just has to stay focused on what he can control which is prepare his cabinet and reassure our allies. He cannot do anything except give his opinions and criticisms about these pathetic actions, but in reality Obama is destroying what little credibility he had left by being so petty and not leaving graciously. His poll numbers are more faked than Hillarys.
Once Trump is inaugurated his main job will be as teacher and coach of capitalism. He has to re-educate Americans to what capitalism is and how it works. Fortunately, he has a good model by explaining how Trump International works, but he has to teach Americans how the invisible hand is real and why it is so powerful.
The country has been brainwashed into believing capitalism is evil and the only way it makes money is by exploiting the environment and stealing from the poor.
There has been a hundred year mission by Marxists to destroy capitalism in this country and he has to explain it is just the opposite. He has to teach them how a manufacturing facility in a town helps the city rather than harms it. He has to teach Americans that having jobs is a good thing rather than a bad one. It is so bad he has to explain to the people that cheap oil and energy is good for them rather than bad and these opportunities lead to a better life not a poorer one.
He has to point out how we can manage the environment rather than set it aside for some religious belief which actually helps the planet rather than harms it. He needs to have real scientists explain how CO2 actually helps plants grow rather than destroys the planet. This may be one of the hardest challenges since the brainwashing has been so complete with the Warmists that many of them will never be convinced, but most of America is ready to be reaffirmed. He has to have his people have a serious discussion and make them prove their claims with real examples of warming by man.
This is the most exciting times for America in the past fifty or a hundred years. We still have many foundational issues, but we actually have someone who is willing to address them. There are ways to address our competitiveness in the global world and he knows real life solutions to those issues. He understands the dangers of having this much debt and is willing to address it from a businessmans perspective rather than the District of Corruptions. The Founders wanted part time politicians for the very problem which exists and is the seductiveness of DC as it corrupts absolutely and that is what you get with professional politicians. An honest politician is as rare as a harelip used car salesman and that is why they wanted successful businessmen running America from an outside Washington view.
We have never had a President with these skill sets which is just what America needs. Sure he will be mocked, shunned and ridiculed by the establishment which proves their fear. It is a new day and a fresh start as capitalism will get a chance to show what can be in this great country. No more apologizing for past sins and successes, but the ability to be proud to be an American again. No more PC censorship or walking on egg shells you may insult the perpetually offended. They can have their pity party while the rest of America goes back to work. It is a new dawn for the Shining City on a Hill, so Happy Trump Year America!
Pray for Trump
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL Y’ALL!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
McCain and Linda must be sleeping off a bender.
McCain and Linda need to be publically discredited ASAP. They do not express the opinion of either the Senate or the States they represent.
They are promoted by the MSM simply for their opposition to Trump.
And of course I wish all yon Freepers a very Happy New Year. Myself slept right through it.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and with some big work on these past two Sunday holidays. Thanking Bray for weekly wisdom and yon commenters for fleshing it all for me.
The Week Just Passed
Carrie Fisher AND Debbie Reynolds both died. Very tragic. My big memory of Debbie Reynolds is the love affair they both had with Eddie Fisher. That guy had something the women loved, eh?
The biggest news this week involves the outgoing administration and the damage it is doing to the world. First they stab Israel in the back over those silly Palestinian territories. There was never a people referred to as Palestinian and those that are called that today have done NOTHING with that area of the world they have to live in. Since 1967 this has been going on, now all of a sudden Israel can’t build buildings on its own land?
America, as a rule and I admit I’m kind of guessing, but America quite likes Israel and this whole situation is not sitting well with the populace.
The other thing this admin did to help break up and destroy the world for the incoming President Trump was to expel 35 Russian diplomats living in this country, on land they own by the way. All this because, heh, Russia supposedly hacked into our election.
All week the debates rage on over this Israel thing. As always, I wonder where the hell are the Republicans.
Why doesn’t Mitch McConnell take those marbles out of his mouth and call a meeting of some House and Senator congress people? Why don’t he and Paul Ryan form a PR effort to get the story of Israel out there, the 6 Day War, how the Arabs suddenly stopped their attack on Israel because well Arabs make lousy soldiers.
Why don’t the Republicans show the many bombs lobbed at Israel by Yassar Arafat .remember that creep Now buried in somebody’s back yard but Hillary and Madeline Albright kissed his ugly butt many times and still he walked away from any deal with Israel.
Most of all, who don’t the Republicans, in this PR campaign that they aren’t doing, go on every Sunday talk show, every political interview, send out press releases, reminding Americans that one of the Palestinian goals is to remove Israel forever and, indeed, has maps on which Israel does not exist?
I must remind of my caveat ..Obama only got away with the horror of his actions because there was no opposition party to stop him.
On A Personal Note
2017 is bound to be a better year for me as I don’t think 2016 could have been much worse.
But the story I am about to tell well first, there is a little political bent to it. But it happened recently and it’s kind of sad.
It’s my mother-in-law, mother of my deceased husband, now 87 years old. She is the grandmother of Matthew Fish, someday to be President of the U.S. and I wrote about me and granddaughter’s visit to Massachusetts. We stayed with her, Betty, and she is a very nice and gracious lady.
I can’t believe what happened to her recently but I saw signs of during that infamous visit.
Betty’s husband died about 15 years ago, my father-in-law, a wonderful man, president of the Bank of New England, a self-made man, a wonderful father. When in doubt ladies out there, and like I told my potential future first lady my granddaughter, if you can get a Fish man you’ll have the perfect husband and father.
Betty Fish has had a wonderful life for her 87 years. Well at least up to this year.
Bill Fish Sr. provided for them very well and even now Betty Fish has a whole lot of money. In addition, they raised three children, great children. Bill spoiled Betty but he loved doing so. Betty was born into a situation which made her the center of attention as the only child of two parents who met when Betty’s mother met her father when she was nanny to his children. They both had children from prior marriages with Betty their only child together.
Now Betty lives in a .what do they call it? It’s a home for seniors but it’s not a nursing home. The residents have their own apartment but the buildings are designed to be a central living system, with shops and doctors in the hub of all this.
Betty loves it and of course Bill bought it for her.
In the course of the last 15 years Betty met a guy we will call Joe.
It’s inevitable in this sort of living situation. There’s widows and widowers, many lonely or in ill health. Betty didn’t team up with Joe until about three years ago but they’d been an item for as many years.
Now let me tell you about Joe. He’s in his late 80’s and it would seem, yon ladies and gems, that Joe dumped Betty.
She told me about it during her weekly phone call last week and I wasn’t too awful surprised.
First, Joe is very, very very, very ..very, very ..liberal.
I remember well those times we were all together and how brother-in-law and the famous Matthew Fish yeah AND ME .would discuss the then upcoming election. Joe would sit at the table and mumble how very wrong we all were.
Betty is no big conservative, please understand. She voted for Obama, TWICE! But she hated Hillary-who Joe loved-and is originally from Indiana (the whole family migrated to Massachusetts from Indiana when my husband was around 16 years old) and she did like Mike Pence. She didn’t much like Trump but Hillary she really disliked.
The thing about all this is that the woman really does have a broken heart. Now she’s not sobbing or carrying on but we talked about it and I was speechless, if you can believe. Who would have thought that in heading toward the twilight of life that one would be dropped like a hot potato?
Yeah Joe has another female, living also in that same complex. Betty had to change her gym workouts to avoid Joe.
At any rate, I did the good girlfriend thing and told Betty that Joe doesn’t deserve her, that he’ll come running back soon enough .things women do when another is dumped by a man.
As for Joe, he was a nice enough person but again, he was so liberal I avoided much talk with him.
I also suppose that Betty will get over it but she really was sad, telling me how this new woman was not much to look at, how fond she’d grown of Joe ..
But she laughs, she’s not sitting alone and crying.
But I know she’s really hurt and I kind of hurt for her.
Happy New Year to all Freepers and a special thanks to JimRob for providing such a wonderful platform to express our views as he does 24/7 with FreeRepublic.com.
Indeed, didn't Hillary Clinton herself actually admitted late in the campaign she had trouble "connecting to the middle class"? Indeed, if you subtract out California and four of five boroughs of New York City, Trump wins the popular vote nationally going away--and I mean going away.
As I've said a couple of times earlier, one wonders did Donald Trump or someone in his family read Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy. Collins' description of the fictional capital of Panem might as well be describing New York City, Washington, DC and Los Angeles, places where Hillary got the most support.
This piece should make its way to President Trump so he can see who is on his side.
....There has been a hundred year mission by Marxists to destroy capitalism in this country and he has to explain it is just the opposite. He has to teach them how a manufacturing facility in a town helps the city rather than harms it. He has to teach Americans that having jobs is a good thing rather than a bad one. It is so bad he has to explain to the people that cheap oil and energy is good for them rather than bad and these opportunities lead to a better life not a poorer one.
“Once Trump is inaugurated his main job will be as teacher and coach of capitalism. He has to re-educate Americans to what capitalism is and how it works. “
Truly we all need to do more on this...kids in school, college included, think the crony capitalism we have now is capitalism. Wrong.
It is naked fascism.
We have to reeducate and strip away the crony part.
The Democrat Party is dying politically on the vine!!! Obama, Clinton have destroyed it!!! If DJT were to pursue the vote tallys in Nevada, New Hampshire, Minnesota & Colorado,,,he would have found out he won those states also, because of the thousands of illegal votes that Democrat madams, Hillary Debbie, & Donna, with Obama’s blessing, set up. it gets worse...the New York & California voting was literally filled with illegal millions of illegal Democrat voters...so those states should not even be included in the final tally!!! The American people are no longer fooled by these living “Democrat” human vermins and their lock-step phoney, lie telling media!!!
And they were worried about Trump having his finger on the nuclear button...McCain encouraging Obama to retaliate against Russian Hackers is the real worry. And no wonder why Trump wants to get a briefing from sources other than the media and White House, if you like your hacker...
Aw, that’s a shame. I guess assisted living places have their own social world. My mom, with dementia, was in one for awhile. I always felt the ladies who still “had their faculties” looked down on her.
18 posts into the thread and you have still not mentioned Alabama? You must be expecting discussion from the actual shows this morning...
