What Ever Happened to the WHOPPER?

So yesterday I developed an irresistible urge for a quick hot juicy burger. Coincidently I was at that very moment driving right toward the entrance of a drive through…Burger King – Home of the all American WHOPPER! As I spun my wheels sharply to the right so not to miss the driveway the saliva began to flow. I’m not kidding, I was drooling. All I could think about was that quarter pound flame broiled ground beef sandwich stacked with tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles with mayo mustard and catsup. Back in 1971 it was so wide and thick I could hardly hold it with one hand. I usually had it cut in half just to facilitate its polite inoffensive consumption. Remember the slogan “It takes two hands to handle the Whopper”?

whopperAs I perused the outdoor menu, crowded with more choices than I coud ever imagine at a burger joint, there it was…the WHOPPER! But the options had changed a little. My choice was either a single, double or triple. TRIPLE? Who could ever consume a sandwich that was not only too big to hold with one hand but with 3 huge patties stacked between those two plate size buns? Well, to each his own. “I’ll take a regular Whopper and a medium coke,”I told the speaker phone outside my driver side window. I could not wait to dig into that luscious piece of heaven. I took the bag from the pimple faced kid and drove to the first open parking spot I could find. I reached in – pulled out the paper wrapped bit of nostalgia that so affected my glands – but what did I see? A drooping soggy sloppy keizer roll the size of my wife’s hand. Nothing at all like what I had remembered from back in the day. I thought, “what ever happened to the whopper”? 

So this burger, like everything else wonderful in our lives, we want to experience again in the same way we remember it, fails to meet our expectations! “The good ole days” will never be again. So hang it up, enjoy what you have in the now and stop wondering what ever happened to the Whopper!

The Barrage of Recalcitrant RINOS

I’m not blogging very much these days since the election. I’m working through the spiritual manifestation of evil that got the hugest pass in American history. But, in the meantime, my wonderfully talented son, who lives in Colorado is barraged by so called reasonable republicans who are mad because we lost due to the Republican Party’s Platform and how our lack of spin and parsing of our position has scared too many votes off. I regret sharing this vile link (to the blogger http://tinyurl.com/arq9arw ) that my son’s friend shared with him. But you may need it for perspective. My son shares it with me looking for his Dad’s opinion. Well, below I share my opinion. I hope it not only grabs my son’s attention but many others being attacked by the recalcitrant RINOS.

This guy is from Vermont – a flaming liberal, just read his language. Please do not get fooled by his warped Godless logic. You have to put the US Constitution and Christian Biblical doctrine in the equation which this idiot doesn’t. For me to start going point by point is a total waste of your’s and my time. Right him and the blog off

Did you know how the Secret Service is taught how to recognize a counterfeit $100 bill?  Well I’ll skip to the chase and tell you straight out – it’s not by studying counterfeit bills its by studying an authentic $100 bill so much they can tell a counterfeit practically by touch.

My advise to you is spend some time studying the Constitution of the United States and the Bible doctrines that apply to the principles that founded our country. That way, when you see garbage like this, cloaked in reason, you can simply hit the delete button. The wolves are out to get you, don’t forget that.

You can just tell your friend you don’t think you’re ready for a political or philosophical discussion until you are more boned up on the Biblical and US Constitutional facts.

We are not a country that was created by a bunch of fools whose logic was based on race, sex and economic conditions. Liberty goes far beyond the spin on the left, as a matter of fact if it wasn’t for the thousands of men who died to preserve our liberty this idiot wouldn’t even have the right to speak his misguided mind. Its not about Party its about values. And if our country’s values have sunk so low that we must appeal to the sexual perverts, baby killers, vote buyers and race baiters or those sympathetic to them we are on the way to losing what America stands for. Jesus Christ spoke the truth and did not put any spin on it to attract a lot of votes…the differences are beyond logic and reason, they are spiritual in nature.

Here is a video of the kind of human beings his logic creates.

And that’s a Christian American Opinion


Lions 1 Christians 0 for Now.

My son was hoping to give me some helpful advise on why Republican Mitt Romney lost. He expressed the erroneous opinion, that if we were more towards the center of the political spectrum more people would have voted for a Republican as President of the United States. So again I have to hear from my own son its the Right Wing Conservatives fault. It’s never the Left Wing Democrat Liberal’s fault for being flat-out dishonest or creating a division between the so-called “rich” and poor. So I wrote him an email explaining my position and here it is.

I know you’d love to have a more “reasonable” Dad, but I’m not. I hate to be a disappointment to you but  I do not agree. The “new america?”  Obama only won by 50% of the votes ( and by winning strategic states with enough electoral votes). The other 50% rejects the left thinking of Obama…he’s definitely not center.  If our votes were switched by location Mitt would be our new President.

Ungodly social policy is what attracts 50% and moral social policy attracts the other 50%.

There is no middle between light and darkness. Even if we had  “fresh inspiring ideas” but still did not approve of abortion, didn’t promise free stuff, did not promote  pro-homo policy we would always lose to liberal lefties or 50% of the country.  Even if we did have a candidate that was lukewarm on these issues or “couched” their  presentation of his ideas like Mitt Romney (who actually was the least radically right, remember he was the Gov. of Massachusetts a far left state)  the least right-wing of all the Republicans in the primaries. Or even someone like John McCain who was as liberal and lukewarm a republican as they come, you would see the Colberts, Stewarts and MSNBCs find other ways to throw them under a bus!

Obama can abandon an embassy to terrorists lie about it and get a pass and even have News programs like 60 minutes hide what he said about it. If America votes their conscience you see where our country’s conscience sits. Some statisticians can be right but at what cost? Jut because his math is right doesn’t make the people right. I can offer additional stats from CU a lefty college  that showed an opposite result. See Here.

I could say the same thing you said that for republicans to be part of a  “new america” they have to come to the center but for the democrats needing to come farther  to the right to be inline with the Constitution of the US and God’s principles. The Political Media Machine of this country is determined to turn us into a “globally” acceptable country with everybody getting what they want whether moral or not and at someone else’s expense.  Look at Greece, Spain today. Obama’s policies will take us the way of those countries and financial condition. BROKE and RIOTING

 

You can now smoke pot in Colorado. I wonder if the Right Wing Christians or the non-christian left voted that in? Certainly reflects Colorado’s general moral condition.

 

It’s a way more complicated and complex an argument to debate so I prefer to boil it down to one simple illustration.

 

For this go-round its:

 Hungry Lions 1  / Outspoken Christians 0

 But this doesn’t make the Christians wrong, just dead…..but only for now!

And that’s A Christian American Opinion.


Government Regulations Screwed Me!

A little more on this issue. There is no special morality to being a centrist but there is to be a conservative. As a political Conservative and not a Republican I am passionate about the founding principles that gave us a LIMITED Judeo Christian based government. Limited government has grown to over-sized government and put us into a $16 trillion debt problem from both parties. I’m for any political candidate that uses his political skill and gravitas to influence the opposing party for the basic principles afore mentioned.This would have to bring us closer to the middle of course but you cannot expect a centrist candidate at this time in our history (McCain) to pull us back to where we came from. Our progressive politicians have driven us further to the left and a European style government (that’s going broke I might add)  and I believe that was not the intention of our Founders. Just demonizing the few corporations that have exploited its employees doesn’t invalidate our free enterprise system with limited governance.

Government regulations destroyed the corporation I worked for, for 16 years, and the company my wife built from scratch and ran for 14 years. The government put 10,000 out of work in my company and 43 from my wife’s. And also put us both out of work. A whole lot of time invested for a future that never materialized due to government regulations.Regulations created as political leverage to “protect” the citizenry from “Big Corporations”. Bull Crap! I was doing just fine before liberal politicians seized power and attempted to tip the scales in their favor by exploiting a disaster for a few lousy votes. I trust my Lord is able to protect me through the change but attempting to praise compromise,which is a word describing something  He never did – put Him on a Cross by the compromisers or liberal/progressive politicians of His day.

Help Obama Pack

So early this morning while having fun posting new and exciting facts about the upcoming election on Facebook, my darling sensitive wife made an astounding statement. “Why do we always have to be so hard on Barack Obama?”she says. I leapt off the bed! Are you kidding? My fiery eyed conservative Mississippi wife, all of a sudden, has sympathy for our soon to be ex-president? “Yes,” she says. ” I think we need to consider all the work he’s going to have to go through packing all his stuff to move out in January; so we need to help him.” Help him! I cried. So how do you suppose we help him move out? Well, she said. “Do you remember how difficult it was finding enough boxes in good shape to put all our stuff in last time we moved?” Yes, I said, as the memory of loading all those boxes from grocery stores in the back of our car day after day; just hoping we had found enough for our move, came flooding back to my mind. We had accumulated a lot of stuff. Well, she said. I think it would be the right thing for us to consider how much stuff our soon to be ex-president has accumulated over the last four years and we need to help him with the boxes. Wow….you have a point there I said. Why don’t we just create a website with some simple instructions on how all of our friends and like-minded conservatives can give Michelle and Barack a hand.

So if you are inclined to be a good Samaritan and want to do one last favor for the man at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,

Saving my Family from Barack Obama

Today my son was kind enough to share an Obama political cartoon and asked me what I thought. So I answered his question as best I could. Just read below.

Half truths and distortions. A well done propaganda piece appealing with a cartoon to those who are easily fooled by a well produced and scripted ad. If I had never studied US or World history I think I would be fooled as well. Most people are too busy to take the time to worry about the accuracy of his statements. If I thought you were interested I guess I could go point by point and provide clarity to the claims and show the distortions.


But just think about these few facts which is counter to the ad’s overall argument.

1. The US constitution declares that personal rights and states’ rights are protected FROM the Federal Government.

http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution.html

Why? Because we started and won a Revolutionary war to deliver us from the Federal Government of England. We do not want a King at the federal level. Our great country and its economy and prosperity is driven and grown by the “Rich” who create jobs and got there through hard work innovation and a free enterprise economy (capitalism) not the middle class. Just tell me, how many jobs have you given anyone versus Steve Jobs? Obama is trying to create a great divide between the races and classes. Income taxes versus sales taxes are relatively new and were mostly increased due to the cost of wars.

2. The federal government is not self-sustaining…it “takes” all its money; but from only 1/2 of americans who work to build businesses, hire and pay people (the middle class). Of these business entrepreneurs 60% of all federal tax is paid by the so-called “rich” or top 5% (or most successful) of the income earners in this country. So out of all the people paying taxes who do you think really deserves to pay a little more or a little less?

http://www.ntu.org/tax-basics/who-pays-income-taxes.html.

This fact alone should tell you the cartoon is a big fat lie. Remember all the money you earn is YOURS per our constitution not the government’s. Remember we are a FREE people and Freedom means just that.

3. So in simple terms. Take your family. Let’s say you tell Ian and Gavin they need to pay you 10% of all the money they earn. So Ian,wanting to buy a bike and being the brilliant entrepreneur has an idea. He’s going to sell lemonade out front. So he works very hard to build a lemonade stand. He sits at it all day in the hot sun and takes in $10 the first day. Gavin on the other hand sees Ian’s success but doesn’t want to take the risk of going to all that work to build his own stand so instead goes to Ian and asks him if he could work for Ian instead. Ian thinks it’s a good idea to maybe stay open longer and bring in more money. He agrees to pay Gavin $3 a day. Of course with hiring Gavin he expects to make more than $10 and pay Gavin from the profits above that. So after a week Ian earns $10 the first day, $13 the second, $20 the 3rd and levels off at $20 the forth for a total of $63. Out of that Ian pays for the lemonade mix, and the materials used to build the stand and then pays Gavin his $12 for the week. Ian is left $41 dollars.

Now I ask you:

a. how much money would Gavin have made if Ian didn’t build the stand?

b. since  Gavin made $12 what gives you the right (OBAMA) to say that since he earned 30% less income than Ian he now does not have to pay you the 10% or $1.20 you said he was supposed too?

c. and to compensate for the loss in revenue, you make Ian pick up that $1.20 and pay $5.30 or 13% ( after deductions) and then you create a windfall profits tax of another 2%  for the money Ian made over the original $10 a day for a total tax of almost $6.00 because you see Ian’s making a lot more money than he projected rather than the $4.10 or 10% you originally said.

 

Final question. How enthusiastic is Ian going to be to take more risk, put in more energy to get cheated out of his hard-earned money. Where is Gavin going to work? And if Ian does chose to just not redo the lemonade stand to earn the money to buy the bike but instead goes to you for a bike (Obama phone, welfare, food stamps) guess what that does to your families economy? You might have to put Mama to work to pay for bikes and things, for those who won’t?  But of course you’ll then make more money and your darling federal government will take more of your money as well to pay for the services they give to others to get their vote so you can put them back into office, remain dependent on them and then they OWN you and you are no longer FREE…but according to the cartoon it’s all the rich guys fault. Paleeeezzzzzz!!!

 

So what’s your incentive to build your business bigger? Higher taxes or lower taxes as an incentive? Is your incentive the bigger you get the more they take?

 

If I had the resources and talent I’d make my own freaking brainless cartoon.

And that’s an American Christian Opinion

Are Americans Just Stupid?

The only reason I can imagine that people in this country would even think to give Obama a break is because they believe things crashed so hard when he got in he just couldn’t fix the problem. But if ever there was a wrong man for a job at the worst time in our history it was the inexperienced Obama. A man who came into running this country at its weakest time in 80 years. With absolutely no experience in business or governing but with policies designed to make our country into a socialist experiment that he had been studying and teaching his entire adult life.

I pray that the libs who voted for him 4 years ago understand our country cannot bear the weight of his continued experimentation both domestically and with foreign policy. It is costing us American lives. So as in every election year there is always the absolute bottom line.

Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago? Forget feeling sorry for the manipulating View wuss just because he’s black, clever, charismatic or took on too much or that he supposedly tried. Think about the millions upon millions of families that are suffering. Fathers and mothers crying because they can’t pay their light bill, or hearing their children complain of eating beans and rice or having their home for 20 years repossessed  just  because Barack Obama  failed to make things better using his communist father’s vision.

So I ask you, when your favorite football team has a 0 – 16 season every year for 4 years do you expect the owner of the team to feel sorry for the management team? Do you violently and with visceral hatred and profanity  defend the owners right to give that group of people 4 more years because they tried real hard? or do you expect that owner to fire the losing coach?….Well you are the owner of this American team and its your job to fire the losing coach Barack Obama. Wake up america.
