Don’t Be A Fish

Small Tank Perspective

Fish living in a small bowl have limited and narrow perspective. Give them a larger tank and their view widens. However, they are still trapped inside glass walls and dependent on an outside source to feed them, clean their tank, and keep them alive. They are fish.
Many human United States citizens have a limited perspective, just like fish. Even though they have a choice to move from a small tank to a larger tank they choose to confine themselves to the propagandized narrow view controlled by the Main Stream Media. MSM pushes false narratives to satisfy those who fund them.
Americans have a choice in the type of food they would like to consume, and how often their tank gets cleaned (even in the small tank environment). They have the ability and free will to choose the size of their tank. They can also choose to live with no restraints, no tank at all. The USA is one of the few places on earth where humans can freely make those choices without permission from a higher authority.

Free Will – Only in America

Most Liberals have a small tank “gold fish perspective” in the current and ongoing debate over our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. All of them may not live in a small glass jar but would rather government provide ALL things. They bow to government because government is their God.

“As Americans, we can choose to climb out of our tank, kick it aside, and exercise the freedoms God gave us.”

The Constitution of the United States of America is our founding document. It was God inspired, written to protect future generations against a rogue and oppressive government, and allows us free will. That’s the best deal going on the planet. So why would anyone not want freedom? We have a communist movement right now in this country. Among other things, they seek to undermine or remove our inalienable right to protect ourselves and our families?
We live in the greatest country on earth, the “land of the free, the home of the brave”. We can’t afford to take this gift of freedom for granted lest the things we enjoy everyday like traveling unchecked, owning land, raising our children as we see fit and protecting them from harm be taken away. The 2nd Amendment is at the heart of it all and that’s exactly why they want to stifle it.

“We the people ARE the militia assigned to secure a free state. Our right to bear arms is not a choice the government or anyone else can take from us. Our right to protect ourselves and our families from eminent danger or harm by any means is a right given to us by God, not by man or by government.”

Do not be frightened to engage in debate with the ignorant and those brainwashed by the Main Stream Media narrative which is controlled by One World Order proponents. These “great liberal minds” are only fish living in a small bowl dependent on government to tell them how they should think. These are the same geniuses that believe putting a “No Weapons Allowed” or “Gun Free Zone” sign at a school or place of business will keep them safe.

“Train and arm willing school personnel. Train them to be the militia.”

Why put your kids or family member in a situation where they can not fend for themselves? It is not up to law enforcement to protect us all the time. They can’t and they won’t. Who among us wants a police state?


Protect your families at any cost. Don’t wait for someone else to do it.
The 2nd Amendment protects the 1st Amendment. Once our Constitutional rights are gone, we will all be Government Fish living in a small glass bowl.
Don’t be a fish.

Public Private Partnership Fails… Deal Could Chain Residents to Long Term Debt

A funny thing happened on the way to the gym a few months ago. Yep, I arrived and it was closed. All the equipment was gone! Empty! The note said my membership would transfer laterally to another local gym. The owners were going out of business.

Flashback 7 years ago when the City of Kinston and County of Lenoir entered into a public/private contractual agreement with Woodmen of the World to build office facilities, a state of the art gymnasium and a water park! An $8 million project. Taxpayers dollars were put on the table quickly to the tune of $1 million. Half from the City and half from the County and the Woodmen Community Center was constructed. There are other recurring expenses such as maintaining insurance, but the contract called for $1 million. The center/water park did remarkably well for the first year but has been losing money ever since. Image result for public private partnership

The Woodmen Community Center has already become a Fiscal Albatross to the Woodmen of the World organization and to the City/County. So let’s look at where our liberal elected leaders and non-elected bureaucrats have led us. 

First infraction – Government should NEVER compete with the private sector!  Public/private partnerships are enticing but rarely work without infringing upon personal rights. Our leadership entered into an agreement, as such January 30, 2011, with YOUR money READ HERE.

The Woodmen Center was a losing proposition from the beginning. Using tax dollars to put gyms out of business or damage them financially is a cardinal sin. But the public bought the “snake oil” hook, line, and sinker. Did the residents have a choice in the matter? I think not as the vote was shoved through with very little public disclosure.

The promise of affordable memberships and the water park bringing business was a sales gimmick.  Prior to building of the Center, I questioned a, now retired, department head as to how it is that the population he intended to serve couldn’t afford a membership and most likely wouldn’t be able to get there. He said they would have scholarships and the River Walk would be built making it easier for travel by bike or walking. I asked where the scholarships would come from and why he thought he could depend on a trail that wasn’t even funded as a travel route from east Kinston. He could not answer the question.

Now there is also a lawsuit pending against the Woodmen after a near drowning. Losing money hand over fist and facing a lawsuit of this magnitude, no wonder they want to “Gift” the facility to local government (Click HERE). Will our elected leaders make the same mistake again and fall for the Bling? From reading some news quotes, sounds as if our freshman Mayor and some others in leadership are leaning that way. It’s not YOUR money to lose, Mayor! This is a terrible deal for the City and County. Do the right thing!Image result for BAD CONTRACT

As we say in my profession ~ “You start out wrong and keep going wrong and you wind up wrong!” 

Kinston City Council and Lenoir County Commissioners must hold Woodmen to this contract.The Woodmen Organization can bear the financial burden in fulfilling their obligations. If it takes a lawsuit to persuade them to do the right thing, then so be it.

The taxpayers CAN NOT support this Center without more hidden fees and/or increased taxes. Kinston and Lenoir County have one of the highest combined tax rates in the state of North Carolina. Ironically, we are one of the poorest counties in the State. Those residents already bearing the brunt of the fiscal responsibility in this County are done with inadequate leadership. We will NOT further subsidize incompetence. Tell them to do the right thing!

ACTION ITEMS!

Read the original agreement by clicking HERE

  1. Contact your City Council Members and County Commissioners and tell them NOT to take the “GIFT” from the Woodmen of the World organization. Tell them to stick to the original agreement no matter what. We don’t want the inevitable debt!

Liberal Media Reaches New Low

You’ve been paying attention…. I know you have been. So you already know how beside themselves the “Mainstream Media” is over the election of President Trump. Our newly elected President is caught in the middle of a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario”, inheriting an eight year failed backslide from Obama, undoubtedly the worst and most destructive president in the history of these united States of America. 

You’ve got to give Obama credit though. He undoubtedly achieved at least four things in his eight years in office while living the high life on your tax dollars:

  1. He increased the national debt by 68%, ending at nearly $20 Trillion, more than all the previous administrations combined (in the history of our country).
  2. He re-initiated and grew a cultural and racial divisiveness like this country has never seen. Most people will tell you we were “healing” just fine from racial tensions dating back to the 1960’s. But Obama used race to “divide and conquer”.
  3. He invigorated and indoctrinated his liberal base to believe immigration laws just don’t need to be followed. He and other liberals want open borders. Obama is not compassionate, he just wants to expand the Democratic voter roles.
  4. He whittled down and weakened our military to WWI capacity putting Americans, especially our military, in danger and less safe.

Was his ultimate goal the integration into a one world government, weakening our ability to stand alone? Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 but, had she won, would this agenda have continued?  I only bring these points out to point out another.

President Trump, after his first 100 days in office will be critiqued as a failure by the liberal media.

The America most of us remember is rapidly becoming non-existent. President Trump wants to bring back manufacturing, innovation, jobs, and self-reliance in lieu of reliance on government aid, all the things liberals detest.

Liberals truly believe government is the answer to all their problems and they are owed “things”, whereas, conservatives believe in the promise of individual “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”….. but it is up to the individual, not government.  Less government means more personal liberty.

So it angers us and other conservatives to see President Trump and Vice-President Pence mocked and ridiculed at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night, April 29, 2017…. by none other than a Muslim comedian who went WAY too far. Not funny. President Trump decided not to attend but held a rally instead in Harrisburg, PA. Who can blame him?

The performance at the “Dinner” was disgraceful to say the least. We’ll just leave you with this clip and let you decide.

The Wizard and Those Darned Flying Monkeys!

ozThis political cycle reminds me of the movie, The Wizard of Oz… that scene when the identity of the Wizard is revealed… “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. I am the Great and Powerful Oz”.  Well we all know who the political Wizard is…..the Main Stream Media(MSM) and establishment politicians. The curtain has been pulled back.

Donald J. Trump is the ONLY candidate to have fearlessly looked them all in the eye and expose them for what they are…. what they engage in is nothing more than political prostitution! They are profiting from our losses. Playing poker with our lives!

hillarymelting

If Hillary Clinton is elevated to the office of the Presidency of these united States of America we can hang it up folks! The media and establishment politicians would rather usher in the crony Clinton machine so as to not disturb their current balance of power and level of comfort. 

Meanwhile “We The People”, the taxpayers and the workers, people of all race and religion, will continue to suffer. There will be no other chance to right this wrong.

The citizens of this country have become nothing more than game pieces, Pawns, on the crony special interest PAC funded chessboard.

Hillary Clinton is desperate. She understands her 30-year record of accomplishing nothing doesn’t compare to her opponent who has a lifetime of success in business, tells it like it is, and is owned by no one! So she’ll stop at nothing to win. Her record shows she will lie, cheat, pay others to lie for her, and possibly even worse. She let Americans die in Benghazi. More is to be revealed. She has much to hide!

I believe Donald J. Trump’s sole motive is to Make America Great Again, he knows how to do it, and he will listen to the people not politicians.

Trump has nothing more to gain than that. Sure he has an undeniable ego. He also has the success to along with it. As far as anyone knows, all accusations against him are hollow, strategically timed falsehoods designed to elevate Clinton in the polls during these last days prior to November 8th.  End effect…. Status Quo.  End result? ….the end of our Republic!

Hillary Clinton has accomplished NOTHING of good in 30 years. She has so much baggage no one can even keep up with it. She has some nerve calling anyone a racist when she has reportedly called members of the White House staff “ni%$%ers” and her “mentor is past KKK leader and Senator Robert Byrd(D). But the MSM continues to draw fire away from her past and criminal record. They are her protectors. Ask yourself why?

Is the American electorate really this stupid? By the way, I still hate those flying monkeys. Give me the Ruby Slippers instead!flying-monkeys

They Are Coming For Your Ballot!

After cyber attacks on a few state election board websites the Obama administration may be forcing it’s hand in a big way. This is quite dangerous for all Americans and not to be taken lightly. The federal government has no jurisdiction over election proceedings. This duty is left to our sovereign states. But what do you know, right? The Obama regime has issued the following statement:

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,”… “There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” said Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson

hack the vote

The key words here are “critical infrastucture”…. they are trying to make the case that the states can’t pull off just one more election without help from the federal government. So Obama, the caped crusader, and his Democratic regime are rushing in to “save” the nation from “those bad old hackers” in the name of Cyber security.  This comes two months before the most crucial and defining general election in the history of our nation.

Opinion? For DHS to come in and say “this is what we’re going to do” could be seen as police state activity.

In fact it, the general perception is the Obama regime will do anything to help Hillary win in November…. even forcing control over and rigging this election!

The only legal way the feds could step in and take over election process would be at a state’s request or Congress pass a law. But since there is no time for that and this rogue administration does not respect the law any more than they do you or me, expect another forthcoming “executive order”.

bitch hillary 1

We’ve watched an unqualified vindictive POTUS drive this country into the ground over the last 8 years. If you’ve had enough of the incompetence, his globalist approach to immigration and refugee resettlement, his unwillingness to call out radical Islamic, his repetitive lies…… well you ain’t seen nothing yet. Let Hillary Clinton win this election and we are DONE for as a sovereign nation. Your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights will be taken. She has already made that promise. This is going to be a real gun fight, friends.

The Business End Of The Sausage Machine

NC House Bill 2 (HB2) has made a media splash when the North Carolina Legislature countered government overreach dictated by Charlotte’s City Council… their “use whichever bathroom you ID with…” ordinance.  The ordinance was a gross violation of the morals and ethics of the people of North Carolina in so many ways there have been reverberations felt all over the country… and the bathroom floor is still shaking!transgenderthumb

Fascist Government Mandates seem to be quite the trend these days, a tone set by the POTUS, Obama. At first larger corporations were coming out of the woodwork in support of transgenders and their rights. Musicians (if you can call some of them musicians) boycotted North Carolina. However, once a clear message had been sent by the NC Legislature, a representative voice of the people of North Carolina, that these corporations threatening to boycott our State could simply take their business elsewhere, Obama and the Feds launched a separate assault threatening to take away North Carolina education dollars. The general public doesn’t know, but the Feds only contribute about 15% – 20% to our education funding….. only with strings attached, like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey. One example?…. Common Core standards/mandates/decrees.

We don’t take the funding and we aren’t beholden to the Feds or their silly games.  

The liberal progressives will try other forms of blackmail of course. North Carolina launched a lawsuit a week ago against these federal bullies just hours before the Feds launched their own against North Carolina and our Governor.  media-bias-obama

But…ALL of this is just a smoke screen, a diversion in a critical election year.  Those acquiring their “news” from progressive mainstream media to include CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, the NY Times, Charlotte Observer, Winston-Salem Journal, or the News and Observer (just to name a few) are getting the story spun to fit an agenda set by donor dollars. Yes, even FOX has a conservative image to uphold.  These media outlets care about one thing, selling a story…. and we need to remember that.

tranny-at-urinal_400

Most often what comes out of the business end of the sausage machine is a propagandized tie-died remnant of the truth.

Remember, these news outlets depend on advertising dollars to survive and can’t afford to tick off the wrong people…. their existence depends on it. They are bought and sold!

Because of the fissure created when the HB2 firecracker went off, Obama is doing what Obamas do best, issuing more decrees, creating division, and inciting riot …. this time he wants ALL publicly funded schools across the country to comply with his gender neutral bathroom decree.

His ammo? He will unilaterally withhold federal education dollars, the only illegal leverage he has. It’s our belief the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) should be defunded and shut down, the authority and responsibility given back to the States to educate our children.  

Remember this…. North Carolina is a pivotal state in 2016 with the Number 1 Governor’s race and Number 1 Senate race in the country. We are 6th in the nation in delegate count with 72!  We are a threat to Obama’s agenda, Roy Cooper’s agenda, Rev. Wm. Barber’s agenda, and to Hillary’s agenda. The mortar attacks we are experiencing now are only the beginning of what is to come. We should take it very personally!

When Donald Trump is elected as next President of the United States of America he will address the unconstitutional decrees and mandates by simply reversing them.  But until then, until we have a real leader to stand up for the working class, the people that drive this country’s economy, the monkey business will continue. Until we have a real leader to stand up to the corruption in Congress and most importantly the bureaucrats that are holding us all hostage, the monkey business will continue. marsupialsWe need a new zookeeper ….yesterday!

Perspective On The “Big Business” Boycotts

north-carolinaLet’s begin by putting a few things in perspective regarding business in North Carolina.  The State of North Carolina currently employs 133,865.  This number does not include county and municipal employees totaling an estimated 237,000.  In the third quarter of 2015 North Carolina Small Businesses employed 1.6 million people, or 46.0% of the private workforce.  That’s 97.9% of all employers in the State of North Carolina.

In July, 2015 the estimated population in North Carolina was 10,042,802 (US Census Bureau). Of that number it is estimated that about 62.1% worked full or part-time while the remainder do not work for a variety of reasons. They are either retired, unemployed looking for a job, medically disabled, or not looking for work but collecting welfare and other subsidies.

Using census data, we can deduce that the workforce in North Carolina is comprised of roughly 6,236,500 workers. Here’s the breakdown:

  •  3,500,000 private sector jobs
  •  371,000 state and local government jobs
  •  56,980 federal jobs 
  •  2,308,500 large corporations job/other categories

small business

Well over half of the jobs in North Carolina are provided through small businesses.  With the passage of House Bill 2 (HB2) a few weeks ago which, in part, regulates bathroom usage to that bathroom matching one’s birth certificate, there have be a host of corporations that have taken a reactionary stance against this Bill, along with some entertainers.  In a recent article entitled “Are We Ruled By Radicals… Progressive Mud Slinging Gets Bawdy” we pointed out the political gain attributed to this whole debacle.

trans blog 1

President Obama has even chimed in from London assuring the good people it’s safe to travel to North Carolina….and then stated, “I also think the laws that have been passed there are wrong and should be overturned…”.  

Josh Ellis from Governor Pat McCrory’s office issued a statement in reply,

Governor McCrory agrees with President Obama that all people are welcome to our state and everybody will be treated well with extraordinary hospitality. However, the governor respectfully disagrees with the political left’s national agenda to mandate changes to basic, common-sense restroom norms.”

Over half the jobs in North Carolina can be attributed to the private sector.  The quality of people that create business and jobs for North Carolinians, by and large, don’t have a lot of tolerance for nonsense like corporate boycotts and performing artists pulling their shows. One of the best, Jimmy Buffett performed last night in Raleigh.

And we really don’t care what Springsteen thinks about a “transgender woman” using the urinal. He needs to retire anyway. He can hang out with anyone he chooses to…. on his own dime.

Liberal progressive corporations are free to locate wherever they feel comfortable. Some of them refuse to have their names published. However, the www.dailynewsfix.org will be publishing a list in our next edition. That information will provide the latitude so you may decide whether or not you wish to patronize a business that uses Alinsky tactics to “control the peasants”.

More importantly we should scrutinize over supporting any business that thinks it’s okay to compromise the safety of our children so they can sell one more cup of coffee or a chicken nugget.

Just like the transgender population, we in North Carolina won’t allow 0.03% or a small minority, to control the moral majority. Threatening us won’t work and it never will. With the ingenuity North Carolinians possess we’ll just fill the void when these Corporations head off to Rhode Island or some other liberal haven.  After all our State motto is Esse quam videri, Latin for “To be, rather than to seem”.  Rather appropriate!…. The Daily News Fix says Good Riddance!
