My Head Hurts


Seeing this picture on Facebook this morning has literally ruined my day.

The worst part--

Yes, aside from the fact that Omar Mateen was a registered Democrat and Hillary supporter.
And aside from the fact that carried out this atrocity in the name of ISIS, ALLAH and ISLAM.

--is that these people are VOTERS.

#NeverHillary

So, I can't even write right now. Seeing the most important SCOTUS votes all tied up, elucidating how urgent it is that Hillary get NO WHERE NEAR the White House. And, listening to Hillary's last speech where she used all Republican's words against Trump is making me hate the Trump hold outs more than the Bernie and Hillary people and I am trying not to let myself fully go there...

The Veep Game

So, I think discussing possible VP picks might be my favorite part of Presidential elections. Deliberating over the merits of various potentials and who would actually enhance the ticket and influence voters.

So, for those (R)'s that haven't yet committed to Trump --Is there someone that would ease your mind a bit in the VP spot? I know I would love to see Newt fill the spot, but Condi Rice or Joni Ernst might be the more politic choice.

if Hillary is smart, she'll steer clear of Pocahontas and Crazy Bernie and go for a business minded male...though I hope she goes for Warren.

I have to say, I'll be annoyed if Trump goes the Kaisch or Christy RINO route...

Who would you like to see?

The Late Term Abortion Advocate's Ridiculous New Ad



For a woman that would advocate for abortions until a baby is 24 weeks* and one that is said to have had numerous of her own abortions, to criticize someone for saying that pregnancies were inconvenient for businesses seems a bit Twilight Zone-ish...

The ad: Trump said during a 2004 interview with NBC, “Pregnancy is a wonderful thing for the woman; it’s a wonderful thing for the husband. It’s certainly an inconvenience for a business.”


Dear Hillary: Not sure who is advising you these days, but attempting to impugn someone for saying pregnancy is inconvenient to business while you don't believe that a pregnant woman is even carrying a child or has any obligation to that child until it could survive on it's own seems beyond disingenuous.


*The Socialist Sanders would allow an abortion until the second a baby was born--he actually said 'no restrictions' so perhaps even after birth--a swift kick, or a smashing the skull...

Down & Dirty from the Grip

And this, my friends and rivals, is why I am a Trump-ette. FINALLY, an (R) with cojones! BILL Cosby being in the news for the same reason right now is fortuitous. A MSNBC host actually messed up and said Bill Clinton instead of Cosby the other day. Talk about taking away ANY power of the fictitious War on Women... This is so refreshing after watching Romney play nice guy with Obama last time around.



The cigar, Hillary's cackle. Brilliant.

#TBT Caption It!

It's Throw Back Thursday and I say we celebrate the strong SCOTUS potentials Trump released yesterday and latest polls showing The Donald ahead of Crooked Hillary with a return to levity and a good old fashioned Blonde Sagacity Caption It...

Social Issues Secondary This Time Around


So, I keep wondering why I am not tortured about pulling the lever for Trump like so many of my Conservative brethren. Hell, far from tortured...I voted for him in the primary. It's odd because I know for a fact that I am much more Conservative than many of these tortured souls. So I've been trying to put my finger on what it is about the Donald that makes me feel an ease in voting for him.

Out of the primary gate, my first choice was Rand Paul. However, that was pretty short lived.

To me, the Libertarian Party is like that hot guy you meet that dresses well and seems so perfect--and then you find out he's a little non-committal on ideas you feel should be a matter of steadfast morals, and then you find out he's a crier. Kind words, movies, cards...cries at the drop of a hat. Unacceptable (to me).

Like the Libertarian party in general, Rand was a little too wussy for me. The vaccine thing didn't help matters either.

So, about the time Rand was letting me down, The Man and I went to see Ann Coulter on her "Adios America" book tour and the statistics about jobs and crime due to illegals was staggering. Her contention --if the Dems allow the never ending influx of illegals it will change the entire voter base making it impossible for a Republican to win the Oval Office (and the SCOTUS implications of that). It was right then and there that I decided that for the first election in my life I would put aside all social issues that were important to me and vote purely on a candidate's response to illegal (and legal to an extent) immigration.

Enter Donald Trump.

The two things crippling our country right now are illegal immigration (please read Coulter's book) and political correctness. Earlier this year one of my boys was harassed for months because he had the audacity to imply Caitlyn Jenner might not actually be a woman. I am talking threats of being beat up! I was just reading that a new study showed that this generation is the MOST POLITICALLY CORRECT in the history of the nation. It needs to stop. We need someone that has the balls to stand up to it.

Enter Donald Trump.

Here's the thing. No other choice was viable for me. ALL of the primary candidates were play-dough soft on immigration until Trump escalated the conversation. Regardless of what many of his fans think, Cruz could NEVER win the White House and his new statement saying he wouldn't want to be on SCOTUS makes me think he wasn't as smart as his resume purported. Even if Trump appoints a right leaning moderate to SCOTUS that comes far from filling Scalia's shoes --that person will still be FORTY MILLION times better than anyone Shrillary would appoint.

An Open Letter to 41 & 43


Perhaps I am wrong, but I feel that two ballots cast for each of you (more if you include primaries) and donations to Presidential libraries, gives me the right to be heard. I'll be brief.

I realize Trump eviscerated your son/brother. I understand that had to be tough to watch, since I am sure Jeb is a fine son/brother. But, you are both seasoned politicians. You know this was business even when it sounded personal. We all knew Jeb was set up to receive a GOP coronation. We also knew a Bush would NEVER win the Presidency again. He needed to be taken out of the race quickly and swiftly -and in a manner that made it impossible for him to come back. Ever.

We have all had that ex-boyfriend or girlfriend that just wouldn't take a hint. Wouldn't go away gracefully. That one we didn't necessarily hate, but ended up having to be pretty cruel to (ultimately for their own good) so they understood it was really done. Forever. That was Jeb --and the entire Bush family by extension.

The country broke up with you, but you didn't seem to know it. The prospect of Clinton V. Bush in 2016 was terrifying to everyone but your family and the party elite that are used to handing the nomination to the next in line and not the person that can win...

So, though it was a bit painful to watch your son/brother have his manhood systematically stripped away on national television (even for us)--it needed to be done. We NEED to win in November and Jeb just wasn't going to get it done.

"It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."

You Can't Have It Both Ways, Ladies.



Admittedly, I am not the girliest of girls. I spend 90% of my life in a hockey rink somewhere or other on the east coast and the other 10% in a car with smelly hockey equipment and a gaggle of boys driving to the rink du jour.

So, maybe I'm missing some gene that apparently causes other women to be so easily offended?

Trump specifically offends women? Women clamor for equality, and when they get treated equally they are offended? Are we offended because he called Rosie O'Donnell a pig? Rosie O'Donnell IS a pig. Because he was snarky with MegYn Kelly? He was snarky with every reporter that tried to do a hit piece on him. Because he said Carly didn't have a face for the Presidency? I said the same exact thing about Ted Cruz...from the get go I said he had a face for SCOTUS. Am I a man hater?

Trump is the ONLY candidate that could win against Hillary specifically because he won't pussyfoot because she's a woman. The ONLY candidate that would have the balls to use Bill's dalliances as a counter punch to the Left's fabricated Republican war on women. I like Trump BECAUSE he doesn't temper his talk dependent on gender. I like him BECAUSE he is POLITICALLY INCORRECT. BECAUSE he will get down and dirty (I am waiting with baited breath to hear what he has to say about Debbie Wasserman Schultz's hair!)

Forget the 'act Presidential' bullshit. What is Presidential? A blue dress? A selfie stick in the Oval Office? The first lady dabbing in the rose garden. Please. F Presidential. WIN. Just win.

Bankruptcies, Outsourcing and Layoffs...Oh My.

One of the main draws of The Donald is his business background. Someone that has hired and fired. Someone that made billions from a million. Someone that understands how jobs are created and jobs are lost. Ironically, this is also one of the complaints against Trump, that despite his successes, he's had three businesses that have undergone Chapter 11 re-organization (though he has never personally filed for bankruptcy).

This from the left-leaning Daily Beast: "Yes, in the early 1990s he was nearly insolvent, he was involved in a messy divorce, and his casinos were heading toward bankruptcy. Not a great place to be, and based on my experience covering business and finance, executives in that position rarely rebuild both their wealth and their career.

But Trump did, and his pivot was brilliant: He understood that his best attribute wasn’t as a land speculator—in fact, that’s what got him in trouble. But as a showman and brand manager, he’s near genius. By utilizing those skills, he began to rebuild the Trump brand piece by piece, first through books and then through relentless hype on television. Yes, he can be a blowhard and a nasty chauvinistic prick. But a lot of people who got to know him also liked the image he began to cultivate: that of a man who spoke straight and exuded wealth even if he had lost nearly all of it."

So, the #HillarysArmy wing of the Republican party are saying he is a failed businessman--while they voted for Romney and cheered for Carly Fiorina. Just to be clear, I have no animosity toward Carly (though the singing at the press conference was quite possibly one of the most uncomfortable political moments in recent history). However, the reality is 30,000 people lost their jobs under her watch at HP. 30,000 lost jobs and she walked away from being fired a VERY rich woman. "Fiorina pocketed over $100 million in compensation for her short reign—including a $65 million signing bonus and a $21 million severance." (source)

Romney's business past is riddled with bankruptcies, outsourcing and layoffs, yet he leads the charge to rise up a third party candidate against Trump.

Am I implying that Trump is without blemish? Of course not, just pointing out the flaw of touting Trump's 'failed businesses" after you pulled the Lever for Mitt 'Bain' Romney and raved when Cruz trotted out Carly 'HP' Fiorina.

The Statesmen, the Holdouts and the A-holes


Since I don't do politics on Facebook (every once in a while I indulge myself by posting something and then quickly deleting it), the last year has been rough. Sitting quietly by, commenting thoughtfully on something only to delete it before it's ever read or published and basically presenting myself as a person that is unaffected by politics.

That's probably why I find myself back here. Write or explode. Gosh, it's been so long I still had Glenn Beck at the top of the links --obviously before he lost his friggn' mind...

So, in real life, I have been trying not to judge the #nevertrumpers (hereby know as #HillarysArmy) too harshly. Just three short years ago, I was a pre-hashtag NeverRomney-er. I was pissed. I was adamant. And, I wasn't a total asshole that would walk away from a chance at unseating Obama, so I put on my red big girl pants and voted for a lib in coiffed Mormon's clothing.

I'm hoping the current crop of hurt and angry Cruz supporters will do the same in November. Once some time has passed. Because, once again I reiterate, Mitt was a way worse candidate than Trump.

The good news, hearing that ALL of my personal political favs are behind Trump to defeat Hillary gave me a bit of faith in the establishment-- Cheney, Huckabee, Herman Cain (if you are not following him on Facebook, you should be! LOVE this man.), Newt Gingrich, and Rand Paul. True statesman, all.

Yes, there will be those that refrain from voting. But they'll be the same a-holes that gave us eight years of Obama. The same holdouts that stood on an imagined moral high ground that facilitated the country's moral decay with the beginnings of a far left SCOTUS. There is no reasoning with someone that doesn't possess common sense.

#NeverTrump, SCOTUS and Get Over Yourself

I held my nose and voted for McCain and really gagged while I voted for Mitt Romney. I HATED the thought of Romney being President. I thought he was as douchey as you think Trump is. He was Romneycare. He put his dog on his roof. He was made of plastic--a hollow, uninspiring person.

But I voted. I voted to avoid a second term of Obama. I voted to avoid Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court. I voted to stop the soaring costs of Obamacare.

And I will vote for Trump --truthfully, much easier than I voted for Mitt.

And if those same holdouts want to cost us two more SCOTUS seats---then the sins of the father will certainly be visited on the sons...

It's time for #nevertrump to grow the hell up and be #neverhillary.

It was a raging success

The fundraiser was spectacular. Hizhonor, Lil Eddie Murray was there politicking, which was appropriate to get folks all excited. The line to the bar for the Phoenix was long, but I ran into my ol' pal Chicago Jimmy who had a table so we got waitress service. Her name was Reese, and she knew the Terminator reference. Very bouncy, happy, while running her butt off. Good to get that sort of professional service.


By the time we left they had tapped 8 kegs of the stuff, and that was about 10 pm with hours to go! That's about $2000 I have been told but I am not gonna bet the bank on it.


I quote De Tocqueville:


The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by private citizens.


In this instance, the people came together, well outside the constraints of government, to lift up our fellow citizens. Quiet rare enough in Seattle.


More to come, by popular request.
