Democrats: Repetition and Simplicity Over Substance

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Have you ever wondered why modern pop music is so terrible? The lyrics are rather bland, and the lyrics are repeated over and over. This makes the song easy to remember. Just say the same lines over and over and it makes the song easy for people to follow. The end result is repetition and simplicity over substance.

This it the same trick Democrats use to cover up their failed political agenda. Give the people a simple answer, then repeat the answer over and over until people believe it.

Rather than facing their failures, being honest, talking about why Hillary lost the 2016 election, Democrats play the blame game.

The game Democrats play is to blame Russia for Hillary losing the election. Blaming the Russians is simple. It gives the public an enemy to point at and blame. The repetition reminds people that Russia is to blame for Hillary losing the election.

The goal is to give people a believable excuse. Hillary did not lose because Democrats are the party of hate. Hillary lost because Russia hacked the elections.

Let’s be honest, the stances Hillary took on certain topics cost her the election.

China Reacts to Trump’s State of the Union

Flag of china

Make do doubt about it, China is not our friend. As much as we would like to think China and the USA are buddies, we have drastically different ideology on simple stuff, like human rights, gun rights, voting, freedom of speech, freedom of religion… etc.

During the State of the Union address, President Trump made it clear our government will protect our workers, our economy and our intellectual property rights. Those comments seems to have upset the Chinese government.

China has positioned itself so it is the face of global economic domination. It is the worlds largest trading partner, however, without innovation from the USA China has little to market.

The only thing that has allowed China to become the worlds largest trading partner is its access to cheap labor. When trading partners demand balanced and fair trade, the “cheap labor” business model is no longer effective. Continue Reading….

Cutting Out Middle Man For Prepping Supplies

Compass

One nice thing about Ebay and international shipping, it lets you cut out the middle man. Rather than going to a store, or even ordering from Amazon, get on Ebay and go straight to the source.

Believe it or not, there was once a time when the internet did not exist. If you wanted something, you either went to a store and bought it, or you ordered it our of a magazine.

In the stores there are these displays where paper magazines are sold. Yes, I know it is difficult to believe, but people use to read stuff printed on paper. Continue Reading….

Turned 50 Years Old

Working on the bar-b-q pit

I recently turned 50 years old, and life has not turned out like what I had expected. When I graduated high school and went to work, I believed that if someone worked hard, and was a dedicated employee, the employer would treat you well. That was all a lie. Pretty much everything I was taught in school had been a lie. The only thing that was not a lie, was going to college.

In 1986 when I graduated high school, shipyards along the gulf coast had collapsed due to switching to OPEC for our oil production. I thought a young man could leave high school, apply himself, and everything would be ok. It was a fantasy that was no longer realistic.

1994 was when I decided to go to college. I was working at a welding shop in Southwest Louisiana that did not provide any real benefits. There was no vacation time, just a few paid holidays, no 401k, and no health insurance for my family. Something had to change. I had been working in various welding shops for eight years, and knew they were a dead end. So I went to Lamar College and talked to them. Continue Reading….

Dear Democrats You’re Welcome

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

For everyone who was worried about how Donald Trump was going to do as president, and for everyone who voted for Hillary, you’re welcome. You are welcome because the fly-over states did not believe Hillary.

We voted for someone who would fulfill Obama’s failed promises of hope and change.

Why didn’t we vote for Hillary? Because we saw through her lies. Let’s take equal pay for women as an example. Hillary promised, when she is elected president, women would make as much as men. Well, we already have the equal pay act of 1963. So what was Hillary going to do, pass a law to enforce a law?

During the 2016 elections, Democrats were playing their age old agenda of tell a lie until people believe it.

Democrats, You’re Welcome For:

What Trump Means To Preppers

What does the election of Donald Trump mean to preppers? It means there is a lot of good stuff in the future. End free trade and bring our jobs back from China. Let China know we will no longer bow to them. Restore relations with Russia. Restore good relations with Britain. President obama made some disparaging comments after Britain left the EU. Bomb ISIS back to the stone age. Even if you feel ISIS is no threat to the United States, they are a threat to stability in the middle east and they are a human rights issue. ISIS is killing innocent civilians. Their actions have caused hundreds of thousands to flee the middle east. Destroy ISIS so families can return to their homes. Continue Reading….

Stances That Cost Hillary The Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

While liberals continue to ask why did Hillary Clinton lose the election, the answer lies within her stance on certain issues.  What Hillary told the people and want she said to Wall Street were two different things.  Rather than addressing the issues, Hillary played on the fears and emotions of minorities. President Obama promised a lot of stuff.  Very little of what he promised came to fruition.  States who expanded Medicaid under Obamacare are running out of money, as was be expected.  Companies still have offshore tax havens.  Instead of working with congress to close to tax havens, president Obama sat on his hands.  That tax money could of been used to send young adults from under privileged families to college. The people want a president who: Continue Reading….

Democrat party in death throes

The democratic party as you know it is dead. Republicans, the party that was “supposed” to fade away into history now controls two branches of government. Democratic party leaders are in their 70s, which are Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders. In two years something like 25 senate seats will be up for election. This gives the GOP 2 years to turn the economy and the nation around. If they do, democrats will lose even more seats in the senate. The fear mongering, corporate loving, free trade loving, open immigration democrat party better get its act together before the final nails are driven in the coffin 2 years from now. The silent majority sees democrats for what they are, and we do not like it. Free Continue Reading….

Race had nothing to do with Trump winning

Donald Trump won the election based on President Obamas failed policies and the fear mongering done by Hillary Clinton. There was also the issue of: Hillary bragging about President Obama and his failed policies. The state department selling arms to ISIS. Email scandal. Democratic National Convention (DNC) rigged primaries. Danney Williams claiming Hillary kept him away from his father, Bill Clinton. Hillary accepting money from Saudi Arabia. DNC workers saying they can not believe their own primary hype. FBI not charging Hillary after investigating the email scandal. FBI not swearing Hillary in when she gave testimony during the investigation. Hillary refused to address free trade. Coal miners feared for their jobs under Hillary. Hillary did not address the rust belt. Hillary did not address jobs Continue Reading….

Who is to blame for Hillary Clinton losing the election

Who is to blame for Hillary losing the 2016 presidential election?  Start by blaming liberal agendas, wall street, liberal elite, globalist,,, everyone who has turned their back on everyday working people. Hillary Clinton losing and Donald Trump winning is the result of the government turning its back on the people for decades. To understand and explain the election of 2016 we need to go back to the 1970s.  All the way back to when Richard Nixon was president. Richard Nixon – Let’s start back in the 1970s with Richard Nixon.  Nixon opened relations with China.  Shortly after toy company started moving production to China.  Factories closed, people started losing their jobs and company profits started going up.  Wall Street loved not having to pay workers Continue Reading….

Why did Hillary lose the 2016 election

Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas. We are tired of free trade. We want our jobs back from China. We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family. We are tired of banks getting bailed out. We are tired of wall street getting a free ride. We are tired of obama being more interested in bathrooms than veterans. Fear mongering We are tired of democrats fear mongering to divide us. Without fear democrats have no political platform. That is the way they have been in the past and that is the way they will always be. Democrats thrive on turning one demographic against another. Hillarys whole platform was built on how one group, Continue Reading….

Little past middle age

At 46 years old I consider myself a little past middle age. That is unless I live to be at least 92 years old. So who knows, I might not even be at middle age yet.

Even at such a young age I look back and realize how much water has gone under the bridge. I wonder how I will feel when I am in my 60s or even 70s, that is if I live that long.

I often wonder how my mom and dad feel about how much things have changed in their lifetime? My dad did not get electricity and running water until he was somewhere around 6 years old. What is it like going from kerosene lamps and an outhouse to computers and the internet?

The past 19 years, from 1995 – 2014, humanity has made leaps and bounds with technology. We went from dial-up internet to smart phones in less than a generation. I look forward to what scientist will develop in the next 20 years. Continue Reading….

China The New Face Of Global Domination

Flag of china

Lets talk about history for a couple of minutes, then let’s move onto the heart of this article. One of the main reasons Germany was defeated in WW II was the United States and Russia produced more tanks, planes, ships and guns than Germany. We had the resources where Germany did not.

World War II boiled down to numbers. Where Germany could only produce a certain amount of tanks, trucks, planes, and lacked raw materials such as oil and iron deposits, the United States and Russia had no such limitations.

For 35 – 40 years after World War II, or until the late 1970s and early 1980s the United States was the worlds production powerhouse. We made everything from toys to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. The economy was strong, there was a thriving middle class who could afford to buy a home, buy a car or truck or both, have a family, times were good.

Then along came corporate greed and free trade. Wall street not satisfied with the profits they were making decided to move the factories to China, exploit low wage workers, then close the factories here in the states which as led to the death of the middle class. Continue Reading….

Time To Batten Down The Hatches

As I said in a previous post, 2013 – 2020 is going to be an interesting phase in American history.

China is set to surpass the United States as the worlds largest manufacturer.

North Korea is starting up a nuclear reactor that in one year can produce enough weapons plutonium for a nuclear weapon. This puts the world on a one year timeline. Either something has to be done about North Korea within the next year, or the world sits back and allows this rogue nation to develop more nuclear weapons.Evinrude 30 Horsepower Angelina River Texas

Sanctions are not working against Iran.

Social Security disability is going broke, with around 14 million people already drawing benefits and 250,000 new applicants every month.

Eurozone facing historic unemployment rates.

Russia set to increase trade with Europe to $500 billion.

In other words, the United States and Europe are going broke, while Russia and China are poised to become world financial leaders. Continue Reading….

Our Shared Financial Future

There is an old saying, “no man is an island.” What affects my neighbor also affects me. If we take a look around the United States and Europe, we see one thing in common, the banks driving the nations into bankruptcy.

Whether its the United States, Cyprus, Spain,,, banks have made so many bad loans they have to be bailed out, and at the expense of the tax payer.

[caption id="attachment_16075" align="alignright" width="125"]Kevin Felts My Google Profile[/caption]

In the long run this spells out two things – the banks end up with property is made bad loans on and later repossessed, and then the tax payer is in debt to the banks for their bad loans.

Cyprus – We should all be concerned about bank bailouts, and we should especially be concerned about what is happening in Cyprus. Instead of taxing the organizations who can afford it, the government is going to take 10% from all savings accounts across the nation.

Saving to buy a home? Saving to put your kids through college? Well, 10% of your money just disappeared. Continue Reading….
