The Right Things

It's been awhile since I last posted on my little blog here.  There's just too much stuff going on to blog about, and I went into overload.  A break was in order, and I took it.  And now I'm baaaaaack!

If you know me or read my stuff, you can probably guess what I would have had to say about the newsworthy events of the past couple of months.  My positions generally align with The Right Things.

Now, the question is, just what IS "right"?  Most people would say that what is right is entirely subjective.  It is, except when it's not.

You see, The Right Thing is what most reasonable people will conclude first, and most easily, about a given issue, given the facts.  It's the conclusion that makes the most sense, and the position that requires very little in the way of explanation to be understood or "sold" to someone else in a discussion or debate.

However, one must have a happy and healthy relationship with Common Sense and Reason (hence the "reasonable" qualification, above) in order to know what the Right Thing is.  Unfortunately, common sense is a lot less common these days as it's gradually being replaced by government nannying.  But I digress.

Let's see...since my last blog, I think the first thing that made me want to run for president myself was Obama's ridiculous mandate to private insurance companies that they must provide birth control at no cost to the recipient.  This, of course, is part of his grand healthcare takeover scheme where he claims he's not taking over anything, but when the president can order an entire industry to provide a product for free, he's taking over the industry.

Ladies and Gentlemen, that is NOT The Right Thing.  We know it's not the right thing because we have a capitalist system here in America.  Capitalism isn't where government controls industry.  That's socialism, Marxism, and communism.  You know...those systems that are in place in 3rd world shitholes whose innocent citizens depend on the United States for food aid.

What else...oh yes, the Koran burning incident over in Afghanistan.  Some Korans had been confiscated from a detention center library since they contained extremist writings.  Evidently they got mixed in with some trash on its way to be incinerated, and some of them were burned.  This enraged the Afghanis.  Our top commanders apologized for this, as did president Obama a few days later.  Nevertheless, four American soldiers and more than 20 Afghanis were killed in the ensuing violent riots.

Somehow I missed hearing about Karzai's phone call to Obama, apologizing for our dead soldiers (because it never happened).  We burn a few books and fall all over ourselves apologizing to them.  They kill four Americans. They KILL PEOPLE over BOOKS, and nary an eyebrow is raised on either side, let alone an apology.

That, my friends, is another example of Not the Right Thing.

Let's talk about the economy for a minute, and we can talk about what IS the Right Thing.

We are nearing sixteen trillion dollars in debt.  Our debt to gross domestic product (GDP) ratio has surpassed 100% for the first time in history. President Obama has added more debt during his presidency than every president before him, combined.  Meanwhile, More than half of U.S. households pay NO federal income tax. 51%, to be exact, while the top 5% of earners pay 59% of all federal taxes.

President Obama's answer?  Make the rich pay even more.  How fucking stupid is that?  I mean, seriously??

The Right Thing would be to cut government spending.  Cut it to the BONE for a few years until we get things back under control (you know, like you and I would have to do if our debt was out of control).  Then, pass legislation requiring that the United States balance its budget every single year, like each of the 50 states is required to do, and like most households do (and a lot more frequently).

Those are pretty common sense, reasonable, and effective solutions to our economic problems.  They're The Right Things to do.  Leftist idiocy like soaking the rich is only going to take a couple hundred billion away from the debt over 10 years.  That's 1.2% (or essentially nothing).

Moving on...I'm thinking you've probably heard of that black kid Trayvon Martin being shot by the white/Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman down there in Florida.  Quick - from what you heard, did Trayvon get killed by a wild-eyed racist?

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Mike Tyson, and other assorted & sundry race hustlers and victimhood pimps came out in force after the shooting, desperately looking for cameras to get in front of.  The media swarmed obligingly, helping the sheeple stay "informed".  Mission accomplished: in the court of public opinion, George Zimmerman became an evil racist who shot Travyon Martin out of pure hatred for "coons".

A few days after the story broke, however, more information became available. Zimmerman stated that Martin initiated the altercation by punching Zimmerman in the face, then beating his head into the concrete.  A witness corroborated this story. Turns out, too, that Zimmerman has black family members and tutors black kids.


A police officer's report noted that Zimmerman had grass and dirt and moisture on his back.  Medical records and video footage shows injuries to Zimmerman's face and the back of his head.  Meanwhile, a website gets a hold of Trayvon Martin's Twitter feed where he calls himself the "NO_LIMIT_NIGGA" and there were tweets indicating he may have punched a bus driver.  It's a little hard to read because it's written in thug. (Seriously.  Read it.)

Whoops...bunch of folks feelin' stupid 'bout now.

And the moral of this story?  So many people could have avoided sounding like stupid, ignorant race-hustled buffoons by doing The Right Thing and waiting for all the facts to come out before passing judgment.

Finally, some food for thought on The Right Things...

If the federal government was doing The Right Things, it would have nothing to fear from law-abiding citizens with guns.  Democrats, Progressives, Liberals and Leftists (those that do The Wrong Things) are scared to death of We the People keeping and bearing arms and work hard every day towards banning guns.

If the IRS and the tax code were The Right Things, Title 26 of the United States Code wouldn't be over 16,000 pages long and take taxpayers billions of hours every year to sort through.  (And we wouldn't have 51% of households not paying taxes).

If Obamacare was The Right Thing, its full text would not be 906 pages long, and the Speaker of the House would not have said "we need to pass it so you can see what's in it".

Your parents told you when you were a kid to do The Right Things.  Your teachers, coaches and mentors all told you to do The Right Things.  Because, doing The Right Thing is the Right Thing to do.

If the left were right, they wouldn't call it the left.

"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."  -Unknown 

Do the Right Thing in November and get rid of Obama and the Democrats!
