Liberal Hypocrisy During the 2016 Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

Something nice about liberal democrats it is easy to spot their hypocrisy. All those rich liberals say to build bridges rather than walls, then they go back to their home that has a wall around it. Why does Hillary have a wall around her house?

Democrats oppose voter ID, but required ids at the Democratic National Convention.

Democrats oppose a wall between Mexico and the USA, but Democrats built a wall around the DNC. Then there was a wall between the speakers and the crowd.

More gun control, but rich liberals have armed body guards. Hillary has private bodyguards; while she is running for president she has the secret service.

If liberal democrats “really” believed what they preach, then let them practice what they preach. Hillary says one thing then does something else, as most liberals do. If hillary “really” believed what she preached, then no armed guards, no ids required at the DNC, no wall around her house, no walls at the DNC,,,, etc. If she is elected president she will tear down the wall around the white house?

Thoughts on The 2016 Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

Elections are pretty hot and heavy. The end result is each side digging in and slinging mud at each other. This has been the status quo every since the first elections were held thousands of years ago. What stands out in this election is how the press is ignoring the DNC leaked emails. The whole rigging of the DNC primary so Hillary Clinton would win has been brushed under the rug.

Where is the outrage at the DNC for plotting against Bernie? The DNC has undermined the entire Republic form of government. The people are not getting a fair and equal choice that should be expected from a republic form of government.

Are Hillary and Trump The Best We Have To Offer

At the root of the 2016 elections is the question, are Hillary and Trump the best we can do? Are these two individuals the best our nation has to offer?

Ever since Nixon took office our wonderful nation has been in a downhill spiral. Have you ever asked yourself why Nixon opened relations with China? Have you ever asked yourself why shortly after Nixon visited China toy companies started having their products made there?

Have you asked yourself why Ronald Reagan gave tax breaks to the rich? Robert Reich in his documentary “Inequality for All” explains in great detail how tax breaks for the rich have contributed to income inequality.

Why Would Anyone Vote For Hillary Clinton

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

As a southern right wing, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-work for what you want republican I keep asking myself what has hillary done to deserve all the popularity?

She is better than trump is not an honest answer.

What legislation has Hillary introduced that became law that has benefited everyday working people?

Refuses to address radical Islam.

No United States flags at the DNC.

Plays on racial tensions.

Pro-murder of unborn children.

Pro-gun control.

Anyone remember the White Water investigations?

Benghazi.

2014 Midterm Elections

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

2014 midterm elections are over, Democrats lost, Republicans won.

What amazes me is the total deflection by the Democrats. As far as some of the Democrats are concerned, they lost because of some made up reason. According to an article on HotAir, Obama blames his own party for their losses. According to the article Democrats were fighting an uphill battle to start with.

Yes democrats were fighting an uphill battle, because of all the lying obama has done. Where the help for college students? Where is our health care that cost as much as a cell phone bill? Where are the jobs? Where is all the stuff we were promised? They were lies, all lies.

The leader of the Democratic party is not even willing to take partial responsibility for the election results. Maybe, just maybe, people walking out on obama should have tipped him off on how the election was going to end up.

Your own party members and your voters do not want to associate with you. Then you blame your own party for losing the election? Wow, just wow.

Illegal Immigration Nail in the Coffin for Obama

Kevin Felts political commentator

The flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda. Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

We Need Socialized Higher Education

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

What is the prohibitive factor slowing down progress? Besides greed.

Why do so few US citizens own their homes?

Why do we have widespread income inequality?

It all boils down to ease of access to higher education. Whether it is a skill trade such as welding and heavy equipment operation, or a professional such as being a doctor or lawyer, people need access to higher education.

A simple fix would be to socialize higher education. What the student pays would be based on their income and their parents income. For schools like Yale, Harvard, Brown, A&M,,, they would do a lottery system for applicants.

If a homeless person applies to Harvard and is drawn through the lottery, that person would attend school for free. That homeless person would be attending for free because the government would set the rates of the school.

The Lost Spirit of Freedom

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

During the Battle of San Jacinto April 21, 1836, 9 Texans died, compared to the 1,360 Mexicans who lost their lives. The fighting quickly went from rifles to hand-to-hand. As the Texans overwhelmed the Mexicans, the Mexicans fled into the swamps and marshes.

In the book The Raven: A Biography of Sam Houston, it is noted some of the Mexicans were screaming “Me no Alamo !” as Texans gave the Mexicans the same quarter that was shown at the Alamo and Goliad.

The battle only lasted about 18 minutes. But the slaughter continued for an hour or so after the main battle ended.

After Santa Anna was captured he was treated with the upmost respect by Sam Houston.

Sam was wounded during the battle and almost died from infection.

I feel that this kind of spirit is mostly dead. As Bain said in Dark Knight Rises, “victory has defeated you.” We have allowed ourselves to become weak and complacent.

Chances are the founding father would have revolted over an income tax, must less the federal reserve, gun control and various excessive taxation.

Americans have grown fat and lazy. We no longer care about freedom, but instead are content in our subjugation.

Random Thoughts March 21 2014

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

This post started off about Russian President Putin and how much of a failed leader our own president is. Then I got off on a tangent about free trade and jobs. The end result was just some kind of random thought article.

While looking for news on the Crimea situation I came across an article on the Wall Street Journal – Warnings From the Ukraine Crisis.

I do not fully agree with the author, but I do agree with a lot of what she says. One comment should ring a rang a wake up call for the United States,

We have been a nation divided for a long time. Whether the division was by race, sex, sexual preference, religion, political party,,, we have been and will continue to be a nation divided.

Since the late 1960s and 1970s we have become more divided with each passing decade. This division shows in the quality of our elected officials.

Quote from the Wall Street Journal article:

Thoughts On Civil Rights

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

For as long as humanity has existed there has been slavery, upper and lower class, kings, peasants, racism and hatred for one class or another. Everywhere humanity goes we spread inequality like a disease.

The Romans denied the Northern tribes equal protection, and it contributed to the downfall of Rome.

Southern slave owners helped tear this nation apart with a civil war.

The civil rights movement of the 1960s turned violent.

Now gays are the primary focus for civil rights.

This time period we live in has been a turning point for humanity.

Beaumont Texas Man Arrested for Carrying Rifle

Kevin Felts political commentator

KBMT news is reporting Beaumont police arrested a man for lawfully carrying a rifle. The incident happening in Parkdale Mall in Beaumont Texas.

It is reported that he has a store in the mall where he sells firearm accessories, but no actual firearms are sold there. He was allowed to have the rifle at the store for demonstration purposes. While walking to the store, with the AR-15 slung over his back, several people called the police. The police responded and arrested the man.

I never thought I would see the day when a police force in southeast Texas did not support gun rights. The article says the man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Chances are the guy will be charged under Section 42.01 of the Texas Penal Code, which states,

Sec. 42.01. DISORDERLY CONDUCT. (8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm;

Parents of Daughters Likely to Vote Republican

Kevin Felts political commentator

There is an article on yahoo shine about why parents of daughters are more likely to vote Republican than to vote democrat.

While the article is “kind of” insightful, I think it misses the mark. Rather than focusing on core Republican values, the article goes off into left field talking about sex.

Sex is a small part of the issue. The larger issue at hand is this thing called “responsibility.”

The article states,

Parents of daughters, it seems, have an interest in reducing male promiscuity.

Personally, I think male promiscuity has little to do with the issue. The larger issue here is taking responsibility for your actions.

Between promiscuity and taking responsibility for your actions, I feel taking responsibility reflects a larger percentage of the Republican party. Family values, taking responsibility for the children you bring into the world, holding a job,,,, are all part of the Republican party stands for.

The Coming Healthcare Bubble

Kevin Felts political commentator

This affordable healthcare act is just the tip of an iceberg. The rest of the iceberg has been ignored for years, maybe even decades.

As far back as I can remember my health insurance premiums have gone up every year. Even has my wages stagnated for 20 years my health insurance has gone up.

When I was working for Kingwood cablevision I would get the yearly review around August, and the usual BS excuse that all the company could afford was a 2% raise. But at the same time the stockholders would get a nice dividend.

During my review I told my supervisor that the raise would not cover the rise in health insurance premiums. My supervisor asked how I knew our healthcare premiums were going up? I told him they go up every January.

Third Economic Downturn Will Be Our Undoing

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

One of the common questions posted on the forum is when will SHTF. When is something big going to happen?

Rather than a turd hitting a fan, what if I told you it was more like diarrhea hitting the fan? In the past 40 years we have faced 2 economic downturns that have had profound long term effects. The effects have been so slow that they ave gone unnoticed. Unnoticed that is until you look at the big picture.

Economic Downturn #1. Nixon took us off the gold standard, which caused rapid inflation.

For the most part people have no idea what the true value of their paper money is, as we have no tangible item to compare the value of paper money to.

Taking the U.S. off the gold standard has also allowed the Federal Reserve to print money out of thin air, which has also contributed to inflation.

Economic Downturn #2. Losing our shipyards in the 1980s, and the free trade acts of the 1990s. For the sake of discussion job loss will be combined into one category.

Justification For Owning An AR-15

AR-15 SHTF Survival Rifle

Ever since the Sandy Hook shooting gun owners have been having to justify their reasons for owning an AR-15. Personally, I think the only reason that needs to be given is “because I want one.”

I feel I should not have to “justify” my choices in which firearms I wish to own. As a law abiding citizen there is no chance my AR is going to be used in a crime. And as a law abiding citizen I seen no reason to explain myself to anyone.

Free men do not explain themselves, we do as we wish when we wish.

Servants, slaves and criminals explain themselves.

With that being said, I would like to provide my opinion as to why people own an AR-15. I am in no way justifying my ownership of an AR-15, simply because rights do not have to be justified. I am giving reasons why I choose to own an AR-15.

The AR-15 is Cool

It is awesome looking, it feels good in my hand. Handling an AR is like patting my wife on her butt, it provides me with a sense of manly satisfaction.

Random Thoughts February 27 2013

We have a lot to talk about. Rather then break these topics down into individual post, lets jut make another random thoughts post.

Colorado has gone off the deep end with gun control. This time they want to make make sellers of semiautomatic rifles responsible for the actions of the end users. It’s laughable what the gun hating liberals are trying to push through. Making gun sellers responsible, is like making Ford, Toyota or GM responsible for drunk drivers.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Feinstein’s ‘assault weapon’ ban goes to committee. When is the government going to address the real cause of gun violence? Our nation is being overran with debt, banks are getting a steady handout of $85 billion a month from the federal reserve, Iran is working its way to becoming a nuclear power,,, and Dianne Feinstein is worried about gun control? Holy crap, really?

A buddy of mine passed away, his memorial service is going to be March 2.

AR-15 prices are slowing coming down. Instead of a colt 6920 costing $3,000, prices are down to around $2,000. Other brand name ARs are floating around double their price before Sandy Hook.
