After The Bomb

After The Bomb A Return To The New Normal
After The Bomb

Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed as the newest Associate Justice of US Supreme Court. On April 3, 2017, the Senate Judiciary committee approved his nomination with a party-line 11-9 vote.[86] On April 6, 2017, Democrats filibustered the confirmation vote of Gorsuch, after which the Republicans invoked the “nuclear option”, thereby allowing the filibuster to be broken by a simple majority vote, which they easily obtained.

That’s all well and good, and it is good, very good. But now what? What is life and the Senate going to be like after the bomb? How long will this slap fight last and to went lengths will the children go?

Old White Men Did It!

There’s two thing that you can count on from the Obama Regime: a non-stop minstrel show in service of the next election’s Democrat candidates and an equally non-stop diatribe against “Old White Men,” as the boy and his sycophants defines Republicans.

July has been no exception.

On the shootings in Chicago, where 10 people were killed over the Independence Day holiday weekend, the White House said gun-control measures opposed by Republicans would help to stem such violence.

Of course, what Obama and his “House Cracka,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest are ignoring and hoping everyone else will as well is the simple fact that Chicago already has some the strictest and most restrictive gun control laws in the US and that those laws have not had a noticeable impact upon violence in some parts of the city.

On the other hand, Obama is not entirely and completely wrong in blaming the GOP. Given the specific demographics of both murderers and victims in Chicago, the Negro-control measures that a 150 years ago were opposed by Republicans would have help to stem such violence. Hence, Obama is only wrong in detail, not in generality. The party of “Old White Men” is to blame for this.

Is the above sarcasm? Yes, to an extent. Yet, with 50% of the “gun violence” in the US being perpetrated by 13% of the population, Blacks, it’s also accurate.

This Is How You Win

There always seems to be a plethora of questions about how one can win. Indeed, there are whole industries profiteering off of it. The answer is so simple though…

This Is How You Win

That’s the answer. Just as Heather Dorniden did, you get up after you’ve fallen – or have been tripped – and you run faster, try harder. This is how you win, whether it is in sports or life.

What you don’t do is: expect the race to halted and restarted; for any of your competitors to help you up; or to just lay there and blame various and sundry other people, groups, organizations, or whole cultures for your having fallen down in some fashion – even in those rare occurrences when they are to blame for it.

Sadly, this is lesson rarely taught anymore. Instead being a victim is what is taught along with blamecasting whenever one doesn’t achieve success quick enough or at all. Perhaps this is because “winning” requires there to also being losers and that’s “not fair.” Perhaps it’s simply that “validation” of one’s self-image has become more important than being of worth in the first place.

In any event, winning is quite simple. Yet, losing because you’re a victim is so much easier to both do and teach.
