Good news, the President has identified the good guys and the bad. It’s lucky because it might
be easy to get mixed up. By signaling out the MAGA forces as the biggest threat to America’s
democracy we can leave those oppressed groups that we have been blaming for the trouble in
our country alone and focus on the real bad groups.

First, let us free the good guys from their oppression; Black Lives Matter (BLM) has been
identified as bad but their fight to accumulate money so they could buy a training center has
been good news. Originally it was thought to be a home for the leader of the movement where
she had been living according to “Fox News” but we are glad to see BLM finally getting a training
center. She is only staying there to direct the remodeling which will take several years. Good
luck because there are many new security devices put in place by businesses to stop the re-
allocation of goods and those barriers need to be torn down.

Antifa is another group that supports the current government’s position on many issues like
defunding the police. In so many cities, the people need to be reminded that too many police
do nothing to protect the local people. In the summer of 2020, there were peaceful protests to
make their point, imagine over 500 peaceful protests illustrating the incompetence of the
police as they just stood in a line to receive rocks and bottles and even firebombs but the
police did nothing to protect the local businesses.

Finally, the left-wing supporters of late-term abortions who can claim that control of their
bodies are somehow different than forcing people to get shots are different freedom. They are
working to break down the Supreme Court now in hopes of being able to pack the court with
their leaders so we can finally get rid of guns and this free speech thing. They can then tell us
what is true and what must be banned. Great foot soldiers who can be counted on to support
Democratic polices and ideas.

Now for the bad; The Make America Great Again (MAGA) guys and gals; Those second
amendment fascists who want to have guns to protect themselves and their family from what
they claim is a crime but it is really just a re-distribution of wealth, sort of like repatriation that
many deny they even owe. They are one of a few groups standing for freedom other than
police and there will be fewer police soon. They also hate open borders.

Parents that think they know better than the teachers how to raise a child continually try to
speak up at School Board meetings which they do not have the intellect to participate in. They
do not even know what CRT is about as it was developed to show what America is really like,
not the crap you hear from Trumpers. The teachers just want to help them into the world of
LGBTQ where they will be welcomed. Teachers are the ones that know what kids need to learn
not parents.

Finally, the Christian Churches have had a chilling negative effect on their members and
their objection to taxpayer-funded free abortions. Their list of obstructionist positions on
freedoms is long and deadly. Remember they thought witches were real. Christians wrote the
white supremacist Constitution which the current democratic party will re-write to help those
who have been suppressed.

All of these groups must be suppressed and eventually done away with. As our soul mates have
done in so many countries of the world. Yes, it has not always worked out well, but we are the
smartest people in the world and we will guide you.

  1. Evidently the kid who murdered the people in Buffalo reads your columns. You know, the ones where you complain about the “replacement theory”. Those columns have always gotten a comment from me as they are pure racism. You have been writing those columns for as long as I have lived in Mesquite. The columns where you rail against the “open borders”, the destruction of your heritage, etal garbage. You owe us all an apology as words have consequences.

  2. Mike, your writing is getting more and more racist, discriminatory and ugly each time. Why haven’t you written on “replacement theory”? That’s one you can really talk trash about. I noticed while watching Tucker Carlsons show, your columns are almost word for word copied from his show. It’s sad when you can’t even think up your own white supremacy message.

  3. Thanks, I’ll look replacement theory up and write a Column. Bill, you got it wrong I give Tucker ideas. David, not sure my words cause that guy to act but if they did, I did not mean to cause harm just free speech.


    It would be hard to imagine a nicer place. California has extraordinary nature, from its breathtaking coast to inland treasures like Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and Redwood.
    The weather, especially here in southern California, is pretty perfect. The sun shines constantly, seemingly everyone is fit and beautiful, and it’s loaded with so many of the things people crave — wealth, celebrity, etc.
    Economically there has been a history of natural resource abundance in this state, including the legendary gold rush in the mid 1800s, oil and gas, and incredibly fertile land.
    It’s no accident why some of the most productive people in the world moved here and established world-dominating industries, especially Hollywood and Silicon Valley, which have generated trillions of dollars of wealth.
    California has so much going for it that it would be nearly impossible to screw it up. Nearly.
    And yet they managed to do it! It’s incredible.
    We can start with the crime rate, which really started soaring in 2020.
    But many prosecutors are unwilling to do anything about. Several district attorneys in California actually promised voters to be soft on crime.
    What’s even more incredible is how much financial supports these prosecutors are receiving.
    In Los Angeles County, the ultra-progressive district attorney there received a whopping $12.4 million in political donations (including heavy contributions from a George Soros fund) for his 2020 campaign.
    $12.4 million is a ridiculous sum of money for a local political campaign, especially something that should be a mundane public service job like district attorney.
    Yet LA’s district attorney has been among the most vocal in the nation about NOT prosecuting crime… because that’s what fits with the woke left’s social agenda.
    San Francisco’s government effectively decriminalized shoplifting for amounts under $950. So now people simply take whatever they want and waltz right out the store.
    Automobile theft is also soaring. In some parts of San Francisco, police registered a more than 700% increase in car break-ins last year.
    But it’s not just crime. California was among the worst states when it came to COVID.
    Public health officials imposed some of the worst restrictions in the country and even threatened to shut off the electricity of homes and businesses which didn’t comply… all while politicians glad handed with their friends and donors, maskless, at private dinners.
    California was also one of the worst in the country when it came to re-opening schools. They turned their backs on the kids because of COVID.
    And then when the kids actually did finally return to the classroom, they were tormented with a revised curriculum that said 2+2 = white supremacy.
    (This is the same state, by the way, where the supposedly progressive media called a black political candidate a “white supremacist” because he espouses conservative views.)
    Economically, California officials keep raising tax rates, chasing away productive individuals and businesses.
    It’s no surprise the state has lost millions of residents over the years — an exodus which sharply accelerated in 2020 and 2021.
    More importantly, California is losing some of its biggest taxpayers… wealthy individuals and profitable companies who are relocating to places like Nevada, Wyoming, and Texas.
    This is a huge problem for the state Treasury; the top 0.5% of taxpayers in California pay a whopping 40% of the state’s tax revenue.
    Even Hollywood, perhaps the most famous symbol of California, has fallen victim to the state’s political stupidity.
    Thanks to a host of absurd taxes, labor regulations, and union rules, more and more film and TV productions are taking place out of state.
    Georgia overtook California as the #1 feature film production location as far back as 2016 due to the state’s generous tax credits.
    And according to a nationwide survey of CEOs by Chief Executive Magazine, more than 13,000 companies constituting 275,000 jobs, $76.7 billion in capital funds, and 133 million square feet of office space, left California between 2008 and 2017.
    That trend has only accelerated over the past five years.
    Losing their biggest taxpayers is going to leave the state, and many of California’s biggest cities, short of cash. So they’re coming up with bizarre ways to fund the deficit.
    Recently, for example, the city of Sacramento declared a “water alert” asking residents to reduce water consumption by 20%.
    The city also limited outdoor watering and car-washing to two days per week, and doubled the fines for wasting water, “such as letting water flow onto sidewalks and streets.”
    Yet the Sacramento City Council has approved a deal to sell up to three billion gallons of water for about $5 million to other cities and states.
    The state is suffering a terrible drought. The city wants its citizens to sacrifice. But local officials are selling off the water.
    This is totally nuts. And it’s similar to the shrinkflation phenomenon we’ve all experienced, or what I call value deflation.
    Shrinkflation is a form of inflation where you pay the same amount of money for something, but receive less than you used to.
    We’ve seen this in 10oz packages of food selling for what 12oz packages recently did. And we’ve seen it in reduced staff, longer waits, and worse service.
    Sacramento residents now pay the same taxes, but can’t use as much water and are told to take quicker showers, while the city ships their water to non-residents.
    (To add insult to injury, the city actually priced the water deal at BELOW the rate they charge their own citizens… essentially selling the water at a discount to non-resident buyers. It’s genius!)
    This is how governments across the land are going to deal with inflation (and declining tax revenues). They’ll keep raising your taxes, but provide you with fewer public services while demanding that you make more sacrifices.
    To your freedom,
