May 20, 2014 1 comment

like me old (1952) DI always said, …..”very gd simple”…the gubmint is not to involve itself in social issues at all,,,see Davy Crockett on taxes….our original constitution had none of the potus, congress, and supremes to phvck things up and we defeated the greatest military machine of that time, then we the people, the signers of the preamble, got together and overthrew the constitution (coup d’etat that is called, and illegally snuck in our present big gubmint- pseud0-constitution, and…since then humbugged/brainwashed the herd/flock along the way…on and on…

Simplicity and Continuity, but…the herd never could handle the truth…

Semper Watching!

Davy Crockett, a man who lost an election and then told his ex-constituents to go to hell, makes an appearance in a Senate primary.

 

Joe Carr, from the inbox:

 

Yesterday, Ted Cruz completed 21 hours on the Senate floor fighting for the American people against Obamacare, standing on principle. Tennesseans from one end of the state to the other rallied around Sen. Ted Cruz’s speech.

Sen. Lamar Alexander was nowhere to be found during Sen. Cruz’s speech, but appeared during session to give an insulting analogy about at least one famous Tennessean.

Gunny G: Is What This Country Needs Right Now Is A David Crockett To Write Real Americans  A Stirring  Letter…?

In the 1960 John Wayne movie, The Alamo, Duke Wayne plays the role of David Crockett.

Just prior to the battle where they are besieged by General Santa Ana and his forces, Crockett receives a letter from Santa Ana.
At that time, morale is sagging and a certain amount of uncertainty and hesitation is growing. Crockett then decides to read the letter to his men.

Crockett : Talking about whose ox gets gored, figure this : fellow gets in the habit of goring oxes, whets his appetite. He may come up north next and gore yours ! Men, we’re in a little fix, sort of. The he-bull around here, general Santa Anna, he’s mad at us.
Beekeeper : Yeah ?
Crockett : He’s wrote us a letter. I can’t read it, it’s in Spanish, (winking at Flaca Smile but the young lady will.

Mary Starrett — Davy Crocket to Bono: “It’s Not Yours To Give”

November 24, 2012 Leave a comment

…..History has shown us socialism does not work. Countries laboring under the delusion that Utopia can be achieved by making sure all have ‘what they need’ necessitates that relatively few must labor to provide for all. Bono’s ill-advised scheme is socialism. The Republican Party has agreed to consign Americans to the same fate as other socialist countries with its recent endorsement of Bono’s global goody bag.

Bono, the mouthpiece for environmentalism, global wealth transfer and socialist policy in general owns several opulent mansions throughout the world and travels by jet. The four engine behemoth he flies (while admonishing you to drive a hybrid) gets about 3 miles per gallon. (So much for the imperiled ozone, the Kyoto treaty and greenhouse gasses.)

What we now see is the GOP unabashedly aligning itself with a man who travels the world advocating taxpayers (especially the porcine capitalists in America) fund every bloated ostensibly humanitarian project the UN can cook up. Ironically, Bono has moved his lucrative music enterprise out of his native Ireland and to the Netherlands to offset a huge tax bill with nary a wimper about this Bono factoid in our liberal press.

With planes, mansions, off shore tax shelters and a world-wide bully pulpit to tell Americans how they should fund millions for tin pot dictators in far flung lands- Bono’s got it all figured out about how much and to whom you must give to charity.

And the Republicans have signed you up for this lunacy. The Republicans- the party of limited government whose control of the White House and/or both houses of Congress for a quarter century has resulted in quadrupled federal spending.

Would that time travel were possible; I’d introduce Davy Crockett to this bonehead Bono. Davy Crockett was a U.S. Congressman from Tennessee- not just some coon-skin capped fictional character. Based on the following story I suspect the fabled frontiersman Davy Crockett would have a few well-chosen- albeit sharp- words for Mr. Bono.

Crockett To Bono: “It’s NOT Yours To Give”

The Republican National Committee has signed on to endorse a proposal by Irish rocker Bono to commit American taxpayers to spending $30 million to “eliminate global poverty.”

As if any amount of tax payer funds would actually accomplish that goal. What usually happens is the money extracted from us to fund these wealth transfers first fills the pockets of foreign fat cat dictators while barely a trickle ends up lining empty food bowls.

History has shown us socialism does not work. Countries laboring under the delusion that Utopia can be achieved by making sure all have ‘what they need’ necessitates that relatively few must labor to provide for all. Bono’s ill-advised scheme is socialism. The Republican Party has agreed to consign Americans to the same fate as other socialist countries with its recent endorsement of Bono’s global goody bag.
