Castro’s Cubacare honored as Hillary, Michael Moore and the Left won against Trumpcare.

Trumpcare failure proves many Republicans are Stealth Socialist Democrats at heart.

The High Taxes on the Lower Classes will remain as young people get screwed by paying for no insurance; Seniors get poor healthcare and 20 million immigrants get free Obamacare.

Expect more Illegal Immigrants as free healthcare for the undeplorable’s continues. The Left Will Stop The Wall Too. . .
The Left Wing Media, Hollywood and the Trump-hating press are gleeful Trumpcare failed.

America has hit full-on Bat-Shit Crazy.

Donald Trump
is a chump,
know how we feel, punk/
Tell ’em that
God comin’/
And Russia need a replay button,
y’all
up to somethin’/
Electoral votes
look like memorial votes/
But America’s truth
ain’t ignorin’ the votes.”
(Embarrassing lyrics by Kendrick Lamar)

Compare that to this:

Caged Bird
BY MAYA ANGELOU
A free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wing
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

Flying a really nice, six seat big single engine Piper Saratoga from central New Jersey  to Martha’s Vineyard on July 16, 1999 evening was a delightful flight to look forward to but in the case of 38 year old John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. It ended with three dead. Kennedy was flying a great airplane, the PA-32R-301, which is an aircraft that could comfortably cruise at 165 miles an hour. It had a 300 horsepower engine, could lift 1,589 pounds and fly 1,000 miles without refueling. The flight should have taken about 80 minutes. He left at 8:39 PM and at 10:05 PM the air traffic controller realized he had not arrived as expected. The Saratoga had crashed in the ocean off the West end of Martha’s Vineyard. The three bodies, JFK Jr., his wife Carolyn Bessette and her sister Lauren, were also killed. They were found with their seat belts attached and were recovered on July 22nd.

Why the aircraft crashed into the ocean just short of Martha’s Vineyard is a mystery. Lots of speculation but no clear set of reasons for the crash. The aircraft had three rows of seats. His wife and her sister were seated together in the second row of seats. Kennedy was piloting the aircraft with no help from either passenger. The government investigators analysed and reported in considerable detail, the condition of the broken and crushed aircraft after it was recovered in pieces from the ocean floor. The full report from the TSRB is HERE.It does not show a clear set of reasons for the accident but it seems to be “pilot error”. The “error” is really a whole set of errors, mistakes, poor decisions and wrong judgments. The aircraft was not at fault. Kennedy may not have had navigation maps and charts in the aircraft, maps and charts that list the radio settings and frequencies that would have been needed to fly in the weather conditions in which he found himself.

He seemed to have had sufficient experience and instruction. The Saratoga is a rather straightforward and rather benign aircraft to fly with no surprising habits or problems.

The visibility outside the aircraft seems to have been a major contributing factor for the accident, along with insufficient experience flying in marginal visibility weather but the government report did not report on how imtimidating it is for a non-approved pilot to ask the government for help in the conditions in which JFK Jr. seems to have found himself. The government will not take the blame for it’s looming presence and it’s vengeful and dictatorial position and it’s certain punishment if JFK Jr. asked for help.

A pilot can easily get help but the first thing the government air controllers would ask or would try to find out ASAP is if the pilot is instrument rated and qualified. Every pilot knows there are serious consequences for a so called “UNQUALIFIED” pilot who dares to use “the system”.

If Kennedy tried to use air traffic control his lack of a piece of paper that shows the world the government has approved him to fly in instrument meteorological conditions would be found out even if it was after he landed. Government assures everyone they want to make flying safe which is why they inserted themselves into every flying moment. They literally are everywhere. They enforce their rules. There’s no way out. Kennedy would have been is serious, serious trouble if he asked for help without prior approval by the government to be flying in those conditions.

Maybe the government helped cause the crash by their intimidation. They made it intellectually difficult, almost psychologically impossible perhaps overwhelmingly impossible for Kennedy to invite them to prosecute him for trying to fly to a wedding if he asked for their help.

Air traffic control and the men and women who are in the system are wonderful. Always ready and more than willing to help a pilot get to his or her destination easily and safely. ATC is as important as the instruments in and on the aircraft but they make it almost impossible for a pilot in Kennedy’s situation to avoid the consequences of using the ATC system without having followed all of the regulations. The reports written by the bureaucrats don’t mention their possible cause for making a difficult situation even worse.

Kennedy seemed to have been under considerable stress, stress that wold have been aggravated and increased by the looming presence of government. Physically he could have easily radioed for and received all sorts of options from the helpful ATC people. Why he didn’t ask for it is part of the mystery.

ATC for example could have given him easy to follow and easy to fly instructions to get to the runways at Martha’s Vineyard airport. All he had to do to remain legally entitled to use ATC would be to say something like: “I’ve lost visual contact and would like a vector to MV airport”. They would have used all of their powers to get him safely onto the ground.

But blaming ATC is not going to solve the Kennedy mystery. ATC helped me immensely over the years. as an instrument and multi-engine pilot I know from personal experience how helpful ATC has been. this is the time for me to personally thank them for all of their wonderful help including something as mundane as giving me taxi instructions at 2 in the morning at Wittman Field at Oshkosh, Wisconsin so my son and myself could pitch a tent on the airport grass right next to the taxiway, get some sleep and watch the show at the Experimental Aircraft Annual fly-in. Make that show if you can. Whether you fly or not, it’s spectacular. This year it’s from July 24th to July 30. See the Blue Angles. Meet astronaut Buzz Aldren. More info HERE. .

This was the second fatal accident involving Martha’s Vineyard and a Kennedy. JFK Jr’s uncle “Ted” Kennedy was 37 years old when he was involved in a car accident almost 30 years to the day, an accident that killed Mary Jo Kopechne on July 18, 1969.

The crash that killed JFK Jr. was quickly investigated because of the possibility of foul play because of JFK Jr. high visibility in American social circles.
It was another aircraft accident that did not have to happen but it did. It’s probably incorrect to say that JFK Jr. killed himself because he certainly didn’t want to do that. It was a preventable accident in which three people died. JFK Jr. should have turned around and found another airport where he could have safely landed the aircraft and figured out his next move. Sadly he didn’t and he along with two young women died as a result.

He didn’t have an economic plan or a legislative plan other than “We Are Going To Win Again”.
He demolished the professional politicians starting with “Low-Energy Jeb”; “Little Marco” and “Lying Ted”.
He wanted to build a wall to keep out the Illegals.
He wanted to ban terrorists from the Middle East.
He won against Megyn Kelly by changing her anti-woman quip to anti Rosie O’Donnell.
He met with Bill Clinton’s “bimbo’s” which proved Hillary was the enabler.
He got a boost with Catholics when Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput called Hillary a “scheming, robotic liar with a lifelong appetite for power and an entourage riddled with anti-Catholic bigots.” Chaput also wrote: with the “contemptuously anti-Catholic emails” of Hillary’s campaign team, “bad can always get worse.” In fact, in the view of many people, Chaput had written earlier, Hillary “should be under criminal indictment.”
He won two of the three debates against Hillary.
He benefited from Hillary calling Trump voters “Deplorables”.
He received loads of free TV advertising from Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, SNL and The View because they hated him so much they kept mentioning his name.
Ditto for the mainstream media that helped Trump with their free mentions of his name.
He convinced us he would get good deals instead of bad deals for America with China, Latin America and all of the other countries that have been taking advantage of America.
He made 282 promises according to Jenna Johnson of The Washington Post.   HERE.

When Liberals invited in the terrorists they said it was because multiculturalism and a diverse population provided advantages but they didn’t tell us to whom the advantages went. They went to the terrorists. The 3/22/2017 attack in London by a man named, not coincidentally, Masood should be laid at the feet of the lying multiculturalists. Their idiotic idea that all cultures are good, that no culture is evil let Masood and his evil ideas into London where he murdered people who were not of his culture.

Multiculturalism Kills white Europeans, white Americans, white Christians, well, . . .  you get the idea. These Muhammad’s are dangerous. They are not extremists. That idea gives them cover and advantages they do not deserve.

They are religious but they are not following a benign religion. They are true to their beliefs but those are not our beliefs. They do not belong among us without at least warning us of their beliefs.  These are the words of Katie Hopkins, a columnist for two British newspapers,  The Sun and the Daily Mail.

Welcome to London says Katie Hopkins. “We can say we’re not afraid, light candles and make hearts of our hands but the truth is that we can’t go on like this.” Sadiq Kahn, the Muslim mayor of London is not a terrorist but he hasn’t devised a plan to prevent more terrorist attacks in London. Perhaps he has the well being of non-Muslims at heart but he was the mayor under whom the terrorists attacked the Parliament area yesterday.

Immigrants, refugees, an entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.

Immersed in a seething pit of hatred, hidden in pockets of communities plagued by old animosities and ancient strife.

These people may have left their lands. But they have brought every tension, every conflict, every bit of fight here with them.

The Afghans hate the Somalias who loathe the Eritreans. As it was before, it is now. London is a city of ghettos behind a thin veneer of civility. the Multi-Culti’s makie things worse by hiding the terrorist attacks and switching the news from terrorist attack to a failure of Great Britain to accept the Muslim immigrants because, in their distorted view. Every Culture is the same. The terror attacks in London just proved that false. The media needs to accept that.

At the Northampton township Board of Supervisors meeting 3/22/2017 a supervisor told the public that “the Water and Sewer Authority is not under the control of Northampton Township”. But, he said “the township appoints the directors”. Well, … that gives them the ability to get the manager to do the right things. So they have defacto control and they are responsible for going along with the 39% tax hike. One supervisor didn’t like calling the tax that goes to pay for water and sewer being called a tax but the supervisors go to a lot of trouble to fool the people into thinking it is.

The Municipal Authority is on the same road called “Township Road” which is where the Northampton Township Administration building and the Police Department are  so why has the township been keeping quiet about the Authority not being part of government?

Turns out the water and sewer business is a trick. It’s listed on the township website. The Municipal Authority is an independent corporate agent of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, exercising governmental, as well as private corporate power. So it’s part of the government after all and it turns out it’s not quite a private company. Further, the township supervisors try to avoid getting involved even though the 39% tax increase was presented at a Northampton Township Supervisors meeting. These are tricky people indeed. .

“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters. It was previously revealed that General Flynn’s pre-inauguration phone calls with Russia’s ambassador were intercepted by the U.S. government

Democrats lost in the last three election cycles because they are Liberals who went too far Left but they don’t know that yet because they are stuck on destroying President Trump. They should know that the way to fix a problem is to first identify the problem. Psychologically it’s called Denial.


Denial. . .is the refusal to accept reality or fact, acting as if Donald Trump did not win the election or that the election was fixed for example ‘by the Russians” or that Hillary received more votes so the “Electoral College” which has served America well for the past 228 years is flawed and that’s why President Trump won . Denial is considered one of the most primitive of the defense mechanisms because it is characteristic of early childhood development. Democrats. Liberals and Left Wingers are using denial as a psychological block to assuage their hurt and painful feelings that they don’t wish to admit.


Psychological Regression. . . is the reversion to an earlier stage of development in the face of the unacceptable thought that Donald Trump won. Democrats who are overwhelmed with fear and/or anger have started exhibiting earlier childhood behaviors such as bedwetting.  Some adult Democrats are refusing to leave their bed or to engage in normal, everyday activities. Thomas Freidman thinks Pearl Harbor and 9/11 were not as bad as President Trump being elected.

Psychological Acting Out . .  . is performing an extreme behavior in order to express thoughts or feelings the person feels incapable of otherwise expressing. Instead of saying, “I’m angry with Hillary” Liberal Democrats are attacking President Trump as a pressure release.

Dissociation. . . People who use dissociation have a disconnected view of themselves in the world. They “disconnect” from the real world for a time, and live in a different world that is not cluttered with President Trump.

Compartmentalization. . . . Compartmentalization is a type of dissociation, wherein parts of a Liberal are psychologically separated from the awareness of other parts and behaving as if one had separate sets of values. It’s a form on remaining unconscious of the cognitive dissonance between the election of President Trump and the loss by the Democrats.

Projection. . . is the misattribution of a liberal’s undesired thought of President Trumps election victory , onto another the conservatives. It’s the result of a lack of insight along with a refusal to acknowledge their one’s failure.

Reaction Formation. . . is the converting of unwanted or dangerous thoughts, feelings or impulses into their opposites. Liberal Democrats who are very angry at Hillary are instead being overly kind and generous toward her in a misplaced desire to convince Hillary to run again. They are incapable of expressing the negative emotions of anger and unhappiness with Hillary.

Displacement. . . is redirecting thoughts feelings and impulses directed at Hillary but taking it out on President Trump.

SEARS lost almost $10 billion in the past six years. To survive, it has sold some of its best-performing stores plus stakes in Sears Canada and Lands’ End. In May it said it was exploring “strategic alternatives” for its Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard brands. Having sold the furniture and the silverware, it’s now trying to sell the bathtub and Grandma’s wedding ring says Fortune Mag. Its revenue last year was $25 billion vs. Walmart’s $482 billion.

So what went wrong? In a word, high prices.

Sears was bought by Kmart. Their stores have all the charm of a dollar store without the prices, nor even the service, and with even more disengaged employees. Bright fluorescent lights highlight the drab floors, peeling paint and sad displays of merchandising that are reminiscent of department stores in the communist Soviet Union.
