(OR:  Britain is the first house of cards to topple the deck.)

Just as certain as the Sun will rise, the European Union is being torn down.  Its inhabitants will do it.  Each country will seek their own voice again. There are several reasons, not the least of which is history.  Of course a borderless world is the dream of common senseless people.  Secretary of State, Lurch, just told you that the dream of liberalism is a world without borders, or much else, Winston says.   Their blind side is the failure to understand why borders exist in the first place.   Borders were not created by accident.  They were not created by some evil spirit.  They were created by humans, who needed them for protection..  A boarder is simply an extension of the wall of your house.  All designed to protect you and your family from those who want to take from you.  You and yours simply want to sleep at night without guards posted all over the place.   There are plenty of takers..

The demolition has deep roots.  One is the liberal belief in a one world of peaceful people.  It never existed.  This allows liberals to accept wide open immigration.   Islam, a taker, will take advantage.   Another reason is democracy and the lack of it.  

First, let’s look at the democracy issue. Britain’s entire history of law and government is based on Common Law, which those islands created.  A pillar of that belief system is democracy in the Jury system.   The common law has plenty of them.  The Latin countries of Europe inherited the Civil law which has its roots in Roman law imposed when it controlled Europe. Civil law does not have a lot of juries. It uses democracy sparingly.  The Romans liked the trio.  Call it the Troika, or tribunal.  Even the Roman Catholic Church likes the trio (The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.).  The concept is the same.  The Roman way was to use three people to take care of a problem.  The entire E.U. is led by three such people who are not elected by the people.  Democracy denied. These three bureaucrats are liberals.  No borders and they believe everyone can just love each other.  The Germanic countries are less influenced by the above and are different yet. The British demand more citizen participation.   These are basic major differences in the legal structures they have tried to wield together.

The second motivation to get the old borders back is this immigration issue.   The liberals, being common sense deficient, simply do not listen to history and cannot and never will understand Islam and its history.  Invasion by immigration is just one of the tools Islam uses to spread itself worldwide.   In Islam there will never be peace until Islam is the worldwide religion.  Until then, it is war, by any means available.  For years Islam has been setting down its roots in Europe.   The present invasion is not an accident.  The leaders of Islam want to conquer the entire European continent as they have always desired. They believe the time is right..  The US is the evil empire, they will tackle later. History is the proof.  Remember Islam did attack and succeeded in Spain, Greece, Sicily, North Africa, The Holy Land, Malta, Pakistan, and Indonesia etc.  They attacked and were defeated in France, Italy, Austria and Hungary. At one time they controlled the entire Mediterranean Sea until they were defeated, by Christians.  Look at the history.   Read it and understand it, and you will see through all this BS about poor folks who just want to have a chance.  They want a chance and that chance is to destroy Europe as we know it and take it under Islam’s control.   

The tear down is starting in Britain.  People are afraid and want to protect themselves.  The financial strain imposed by liberal policies is E.U’s nightmare.  It and the fear of Islam will demolish the dreams of the senseless.   Batten down the hatches and prepare for defense.

One final comment.  The wielding together of the E.U. might have worked, and could still work in the future, if the liberals will stay at Starbucks, and let conservatives do it.   Too many differences, too fast, and too many countries.

TRUMP & da-Judge

(OR: Liberals appoint political activists.)

Rooster wants to discuss Judge Gonzalo Curiel and Donald Trump.  You know Trump is taking a lot of heat from many corners about his calling Judge Curiel a Mexican.  First, we know he meant to say that Curiel was a bias judge in favor of liberal causes especially in favor of Mexicans and against gringos like Trump.   That is what he should have said.  Just saying Mexican implies that the Judge is a citizen of Mexico and that was clearly not what he meant.

After 54 years of being in the legal profession, in many capacities, Rooster has some ability to make intelligent decisions about its goings on.  Rooster has always been a Constitutionalist which means he is labeled a conservative.  Liberals are not so aligned.  During his many years before the legal Bar he has observed the difference between conservative and liberal appointees.  The general rule is that liberals appoint political activists.  Conservatives appoint some political activists, but mostly Judges who are deeply committed to supporting the concept of the law, which includes the Constitution.  That is a fact of life.   

Judge Curiel, educated in Indiana, went into private practice for 10 years.  After that extensive time on his own he took up Governmental employment.  This is a first indicator of his political bent.  The private sector was not his love.  Public employment is so much easier for the liberal.  In time he was appointed to the U.S. District Court by very left leaning President Obama.  Another strong indicator of his true beliefs.  Not once has Obama appointed a conservative.  Most have always obtained Obamas favor when they have a history of political activism.  Another strong indication.  While he was in Southern California Curiel either joined or assisted the Hispanic National Bar Association, La Raza (The Race) lawyers, Latino Judge Association, and the National Hispanic Prosecutors Association.   More than just being liberal, he clearly shows that he separated himself from the normal, and accepted the Mexican heritage as being different.  This is not blending in.  This is stranding out and standing out for a fight of Mexican heritage vs everybody else.  In his defense he was appointed by Gov. Swartznegger.  Although this actor was a GOP in name only.  He surrounded himself with liberals, and most of his appointees were that as well.

Looking at the case you need to understand, Trump had nothing to do with its beginning. Now Trump University was not headquartered in California, yet the plaintiff sued in California, and received from Judge Curiel the right to make the case a Class Action. This is not easy.   Way too often a class action is not brought for the issue, but brought as a sledgehammer to extort something from the Defendant.  Finally Trump University, a separate Corporation, is put on the defensive.  Now Trump is a candidate and makes statements against illegal Mexican invaders.  The University lawyers try to force the cases issue to the service, by a variety of internal motions, and the Judge blocks their efforts.  The accumulated evidence, both for and against the University, is probably more neutral than negative, but someone tells the Washington Post (a very liberal paper) to make a motion to have it all released.  To do so is very unusual during a pending case, because a good judges will not want to prejudice the case with uncontrolled publications.  Curiel sees no problem and does release all the evidence of the pending case.  The lawyers who brought the case have a long track record of working for the Clintons.  

All in all this is so typical of liberal Judges.  They refuse to follow the rules of conduct and they refuse to just be a good fair judge protective of the cases before them and protective of the litigant’s rights.  They want to make a statement.

Trump walked into this one thinking the ground rules were on a level playing field and they were and are not.  He then attacked and misstated his real complaint.  It is not Mexicans, it is  liberal common sense deficient people. In this case it just happened to be both.   PROTEST: Fly the Betsy Ross flag.

(OR: Don’t pay attention to the past, it only confuses.)

Do you remember Seven Spielberg’s movie, “Back to the Future” starring Christopher Lloyd as Doctor Brown, the wacko mad scientist who could defy time and play with history.   Well, Rooster was watching Bernie Saunders at a podium, with one bent arm raised in the air, one crocked finger pointing nowhere. His wild white hair was flying around his head, and his bent figure ranted into a microphone. The image so startled Winston, he covered his eyes with one paw and refused to look further.  Rooster had the thought before, but now it seemed so surreal.  Good ole Bernie is the wild eccentric mad scientist who dreams of taking America back in time,  in order to get to the future.  He wants to go back to Lenin’s tomb and have him dug up  to help do it right this time.  Well….that is what the millions who vote for him, and give him millions of dollars must think. Then of course you have Brun Hilda Clinton, who believes the same thing and denies the past to praise a better future under socialism.  As this article is written the polls say  little crooked BH Clinton and Trump are in a close race, and Bernie is lost somewhere outside poleland driving his spark producing car around corners screaming for attention.

As supercallenfragalistic as this is, the very terrible truth is exposed. Millions of Americans want to plunge the country into nightmareville.  This is how extensive common sense deficiency is and how dangerous it is.  As the wrecks of Socialism in Argentina, Brazil, continue to suck out the life blood, as Cuba shines as the night star of failed socialism, (where people have nothing and drive around in antique cars}, as the people of Venezuela go rioting in the streets and Socialism collapses around their feet the news is everywhere. As we talk of the Soviet Empire, the Greek collapse, this is now.  Daily papers, T.V. and social media talk about socialism in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, collapsing. They speak of Sweden and Norway struggles with fiscal control. This is the now. Even resent history has to be in the minds of many who vote for Socialism.  Not one collective ever tried in American is around today.  All failed and millions of our voters do not seem to put the dots together.  They must be deficient.  They have to have their heads in the sand while the storms rage around their back sides.  Please think about this.  We are not talking about ancient history where young heads full of silly data, might have missed in class.  We are talking about the here and now.  We are not talking about the Back or the Future.  How is it people who can pass a driver’s test, pay taxes, maintain some semblance of employment, run companies, or learn the ins and outs of welfare fraud, not see what is reality?   Worse, is that in each of these failed socialism experiments, the voters, in an attempt to play democracy, voted in the socialist wackos to start the whole circle again.  Whether they spoke Spanish, English or Greek they purposefully enabled their Ship of State to be sunk.

Common sense folks, over and over again, are called upon to save as many as they can. Their problem is they cannot replace the suffering the majority of the people have brought on themselves.  Even if the saviors give the people a Constitution and a Republic it soon becomes an object of ridicule, as the CSD people look for benevolent parents in Government.  We are faced with a mental deficiency that can only be cured with intense education, testing and more education and more testing.   So far the Common sense ones have been reluctant to do this.  To begin with teachers should be given a strict test on the subject.  If they fail, they too have to study and be retested. We do it now in many ways. To practice law, medicine, to be a barber, contractor etc,. you have to study and take a test.  Often to keep your license you need continuing education courses. Why can’t we do what we do for legal Immigrants?  If you fail to understand a Republic, you cannot vote. It would be no different than the man who wants to be a contractor.  He has to pass the damned test.  If we do not do something like this we are doomed to sink with the ship.

   Several months ago Rooster told you to “Turn Out the Lights the Election is Over” and it has come to pass.  Now Rooster wants to tell Trump, through you, how the President can repair our Immigration chaos and trade imbalance without causing an emotional upheaval.  It will be as smooth as glass and no real opposition will survive.  Trump has to understand that to tell Mexico or China to go to hell and or be reduced to rubble is not going to work.  The way to do it with peace and comfort in our zone is easy.

Immigration:  Our border control is partly done.  It can quietly be finished in a fortnight, at substantially less cost.  At the same time he should push for a law that grants all illegals in the country the right to stay here and work here for 6 years.  At the end of that time they must return to the country of choice and take with them all the saved money and children they have produced while here.  The skills they have learned are needed in the Country they came from.  We then allow new workers to come in as needed, where needed, under the same rule.  Certainly as the ones under the new rule, leave (And many will leave before their 6 years is up) they are counted and replaced if needed.   We enforce all of the other immigration laws we have and make it a felony to fail to do so. The point is there can be no bureaucratic B.S.  Either obey the law or go to a work camp. At the same time the bad one loses his or her retirement and medical assistance. As a part of this package, Congress must pass a law which says, simply being born here does not give citizenship.  That must be earned.

Trade Reform:   Of course the primary purpose is to open up a road to attract our businesses back from foreign countries.  The second is to motivate U.S. enterprise to spend and develop new business. The third, is to make the products sold here much more reliable.  No longer will it be necessary to buy a warranty package.  The products will be good, and will work, and will last a long time.   Winston, the pooka, reminds us that GE Refrigerators built in 1933 still work if properly maintained.  Blenders built at the same time still work, again if properly taken care of.   There is a reason for that.  The reason is precisely that which will repair the Trade problem.   Standards is the answer.   Just as we have standards in the building industry, and Uniform codes for this and that, we must establish standards for everything that might be imported.  This same standard must apply to our products as well, but the focus is on all imports.   This is not a tax, but an effort to level the playing field.  No longer can China build poor products which it unloads on our market.  Now whatever the product is it must meet standards we set which must be high enough to make the product worthwhile.  It must last for a very long time, if properly cared for.

It is the lowering of our standards that has allowed our markets to be flooded with poor and wasteful products, which chased away business.  We already have such a system in place for cars.   Imported cars must meet our air quality standards.  Their glass must meet our safety demands and on it goes.  There is no reason it cannot exist for everything.   If done, China, Mexico etc.. must compete with our people head on. Our people will win, simply because we can.

(OR: Crazy is as crazy does.)

This is an issue that bugs Winston and makes the Rooster scratch his head.

Today Rooster was driving in the city within which he shops.  He spotted a well-known homeless man with serious leg problems in his dilapidated wheel chair. Not only is it in need of serious repair, but the man uses it as his toilet.  Down the street came an elderly women with her bindles of sleeping rags.  Her hair was the normal twisted mess it always is.  Her appearance is dirty and smelly.   This is not unusual.  A regular day in a liberal run city.   The worst in California, is San Francisco where urine smells just about gags you here there and everywhere.   San Francisco is the most liberal city in the State. You do not have to look very far.   Look into any City that is liberally run and you will find the same terrible problem.  Honolulu always comes to mind.  Waikiki is filled with over 5000 homeless people living in makeshift shanties in the parks and elsewhere. Again the city is hopelessly Liberal.  Try to present a law in a liberal state to cure the problem and the liberals will shout you down.    Think about that.  They will not face the problem or even admit it is a problem.   They would rather let the disabled roll around in their filth without medical attention or a caring hand.  They seem to think there is no problem. True denial.

Recently Rooster was talking to a man about his brother who is homeless.  The man said it was his brother’s decision and that was it.   It is not his decision, but this an example of the denial.   The logic and common sense is lacking.

The problem with bathrooms and trans-gender, gays and women in the military are all part of the same screwed up thinking.   The classic liberal denies reality.  They live in a weird world where freedom to injure yourself and others is just fine.  The murders of aborted babies is just another part.  Their concept of liberty has no room for  social adjustment.

Rooster spent years caring for the homeless by use of the criminal system, where the hapless folks would be cited for some minor offense, and placed in confinement.  There the doctors could treat them, the keepers could see to their bathing, and clean cloths.  They would receive free meals and a place to sleep, albeit confined.  Rooster did this as a prosecutor with the help of judges and the sheriff office.  Liberals stopped this humanitarian relief and have left these disabled to die an early death neglected and avoided.  It is absolutely wrong to think these poor folks chose to hurt themselves.  For a variety of reasons they cannot help it.  Abandoned by family, Autism is a big cause. Drug abuse is another.  Just about any psychological problem you can think of pops up in some of them.  Oh, sure you can carry on a sort of conversation with most of them, but they are disabled.  They are not responsible. They cry out for society’s care and attention.  The liberals will not face the issue.  The problem is not in their comfort zone.

Logic and common sense says, every society owes a duty not to let the helpless fall into serious neglect.  For their sake and for the sake of everyone, they need to be identified, and cared for.  Society must take care of its own.   We are not talking about imprisonment, but we are talking about restricted movement so that the care taker can take care.  Not complicated.

Rooster’s heart goes out to these homeless people because they are mostly disabled and unable to care for themselves.  Tell that to a liberal and you will hear some babble about freedom of choice and space, as if most homeless had a choice.   

Every time you are confronted with one of these pitiful souls, remember a liberal is responsible for their neglect.  Conservatives see their social duty to care.

Understand, there is no international, national, or local place where you can register yourself as a Christian, Muslim, Jew, or Pagan. In fact in the United States, there can be no such place. There for, we must depend on what a man does rather than what he says. The Rooster read President Obama’s books, which he wrote before his campaign. In them he said (which is very significant) that the most beautiful sound to his ears was the Muslim call to prayer. In a Christian world that is very strange. We already know he was raised during some very formative years in Indonesia, the most populous Muslim country in the world. Most are Sunni. He has admitted, sort of, that he is Muslim, and certainly his early speeches in the Middle East and especially in Egypt to the Brother hood, he seemed to say “ I am one of you.” In his book he told us he would support Muslims over others. Rooster, has carefully looked for telltale signs of who is this guy. He is not who he says he is, so we have to depend on his conduct. Here is a list of some of Rooster’s observations of Obamas conduct which should convince any jury that he is a Muslim. This is on top of his own statements.

  1. The first day in the Oval office he had the bust of Winston Churchill removed and sent back to England. Not to the Smithsonian. He did this because in the Muslim world, Mr. Churchill is held responsible for “Catastrophe” the rising of Israel. Muslims know the man most responsible for Jewish immigration into the holy lands was Sir. Winston Churchill. Obama returned the bust to England to say to the Muslim World, “See what I did for you”.He promised to release Muslim prisoners from Gitmo and has done so.
  2. Obama immediately began appointing Muslims into his staff and in places of importance in the Government, where ever and whenever he could. Even Secretary Hillary’s trusted side kick was Muslim. Some estimate he has employed some 50 in very sensitive places in Government. Hope someone is counting.
  3. He has avoided Christian events. He has not avoided Muslim events and has even had Muslim prayers in the White House.
  4. He bowed to the Sunni Saudi King. The importance of this is, Saudi Arabia is the keeper of Sunni trapping’s, Mecca and Medina the two holiest cities in the Middle East.
  5. The tract record in the U.N. has been to have our country vote in support of Muslim issues over Christian.
  6. He has minimized Muslim killings and terrorists attacks in the U.S. as work place violence etc. The Major at Fort Hood who yelled Allah Akbar, was just a sick man. Obama refuses to admit Muslim terrorism in the U.S.
  7. There have been many others, but the most important is very recent. Obama has orchestrated the delivery into the United State of Thousands and Thousands of Muslims, in total avoidance of Immigration laws. He has spent your money to have UPS convert airplanes to transport Muslims in the dark of the night, into chartered buses which take them to funded sanctuaries in Muslim communities.
  8. Finally, he has, where ever and whenever, tried to convince the Nation that Islam is just another Religion. It is not. That is a lie. Islam is a world domination cult, which uses Religion to obtain blind faith. Its Quran declared war on all other beliefs and directs Muslims to fight the non-believers until the only way of life is Muslim. That is why they will not integrate. TODAY, London elected Sadig Khan a Muslim as Major. Such an advent should not be so surprising, since the United States elected one 7.5 years ago.

(OR: Where does it say minorities rule?)
Just in case you missed it, Obama’s administration is pushing to allow your privacy in a bathroom to be invaded by bodies of a different sex. Costume over reality. North Carolina is opposing it. That Governor needs our help. Here is why?
This entire matter is just one of the crazy things we are inheriting from the common sense deficient (CSD) liberals. Others are the invasion of the military with mixed sexes, invasion of Marriage with gays, etc. The list goes on and on. None of it is propelled by Majority rule. That is the problem.
Remember this Country and its States are Republics, not Democracies. The word democrat is the English spelling of two Greek words. Demos which means “the people”, and kratein which means”to rule”. A Republic is a form of government designed to check and balance the will of the people. That is why it divides the people’s power into Administrative, Legislative, and Judicial. That is why there is an electoral college in presidential elections and why we have delegates and conventions rather than a push button situation where everyone votes at the same time on every issue. History holds the record that people power can too often be corrupted be impulsive and be emotional to its own disadvantage. Oh! No, you say. Then why do good looks win over bad looks. Voting for a face or a promise is generally done without use of the brain. In a Republic the legislators must agree on new laws by a majority and in some cases by 2/3 vote of those present. That is some distance from people’s rule (demoskratein).
What the CSD ones have done to us is to run over the majority rule and impose rule by minorities. What is causing the Crazy Stuff is their blowing out of shape civil liberties and using the President and Courts, rather than the legislatures, to make law. Rooster really doubts that a free legislature would allow the mixing of hot blooded 20 year olds of different sexes in the military, and knows free legislatures would not have destroyed the concept of marriage, and gender in our public bathrooms. Debate, committees, lobbyists, petitions and so forth would have provided that common sense would prevail. Not always, but 90 percent of the time.
So what you have is a minority of people, demanding that even smaller minorities be favored over the will of the legislative majority. In the present makeup of the Supreme Court you have 4 who activate for these minorities, and not the will of the people. Each was appointed by Democrat Presidents and approved by Democrats in the Senate. A few Republicans agreed in the spirit of unity, but not in the spirit of good governance.
These invasions of majority rule are evil. Evil because they violate the rule of the majority, evil because they sow seeds of dissent, and evil because the end result will be chaos. The CSD ones do not see it. Hope you do.

You hear it all the time. Trump is causing a populist movement, or his attraction is just an example of populism. Always it is made to sound ugly. Well, Winston and the Rooster want to discuss that with you.
First, you need to understand what “Populism” really means in the political sense. To we, the historical nuts, Populism is a derogatory term referring to the French Revolution of 1789 to 1799. That revolution was ten years when France tore itself a new one. For those who do not remember. In 1789 France had a Dictator who called himself King. The country was broke after several wars and a couple of years of bad crops. There just was not enough sour dough, cheese and wine. The people hurt under the new taxes and less income. Using the American Revolution as their excuse the intelligencia ( Sic.socialist types) called upon the people to revolt and that they did. The people not only revolted they became revolting. Not only did they do in the Royal family and destroy everything Royal, they then began to eat their own. Up went the Guillotine and off went the heads of even the intelligencia (sic) The people’s leadership changed daily and became a national nightmare. When historians think of Populism they are reminded of this terrible time in France. The 10 years of chaos ended with another dictator, Bonny Prince Napoleon, a military guy who brought some peace. So much for pure democracy.
Is Trump in charge of populism?. The answer is no for many reasons. Yes, the nation has a pretend Dictator, but the pretend part is that he is not who he says he is and he failed to take complete power. Yes, we are broke, but congress has not overdone it yet with taxes. Yes, we have a fancy, stupid, bunch of folks who think they are intelligencia, but they have not lead the charge, and they won’t come out of their comfortable college temples. Trump is not the leader of this popular uproar, but he is riding the wave and taking advantage of “The Movement.” This movement is driven by disgust. Disgust with politicians and their hanger-ons who simply promise and promise, but only take for themselves. It is disgust over a black man who has let everyone down, especially those of color. It is disgust with our role in the world, It is disgust with the values of everyday life. It is disgust that these insiders would run up 14 trillion in debt while making too many citizens dependent on them. It is disgust with our weak military, and military leadership. It is disgust with the professors who teach failed socialism, It is disgust with the bureaucrats, and the double dippers who are ripping the system off. In general it is a big disgust with the entire rotten fish barrel. People, registered as Democrats and Republicans and others, want someone who will tell the invested to go to hell, damn the torpedoes, and yell, full speed ahead. That person is Mr. Donald John Trump, born in 1946.

(OR: Can’t you just smell rotten, when it’s really bad?)
In the news, April 12, 2016, Goldman Sachs Group bank agreed to pay 5 billion ($5,000,000,000.00) for failure to adequately tell its buyers of the health of the mortgages & other loans sold to them.
The rotten smell should be hitting your nostrils like a whirl wind. Since 2011 the federal government has made American Banks pay way over 106.55 billion in fines. Add the above and the figure available is way over 111 billion. This is just what is easily found. Rooster says banks, but you must remember these banks are owned by shareholders, who do not get the benefit of the money paid in fines or in the defense costs to get there. Really, a few of our citizens are paying the price. The bank officers do not. ( WARNING) Rooster does not have all the fines imposed by the Federal government on Banks. Cannot find them in one place. Best estimate it is over 300 billion since 2011.
Where the money goes is another very bad smell. When asked the departments will tell you, that after they take theirs (Warning) the rest goes into the U.S. Treasury. There is no accounting.
Let your nose follow the smell. You will recall the real estate collapse of 2008. It started its slide in 2007 peaked on Dec. 30, 2008 and carried through 2009. Obama took office twenty days after the peak.. The last bunch of years of the Bush administration the Senate and House were well under Democrat control. The Democrats had demanded (Bush objected) that Fannie Mae and Freddie mac accept loans banks would not otherwise have approved. This was the Democrats desire to let everyone (The poor, because the non-poor could already buy a house.) buy a house. This message was loud and clear and went through the lending world like wild fire through kindling. Rooster remembers selling a condo in early 2009. He received three offers and not one of them should have qualified under the old bank rules. To the Rooster it was obvious they could not pay. Rooster asked the lender how come he would approve them, and he said because that was the word from D..C. Get the poor into houses. Rooster almost pulled out, because he could see not only the future of such loans, but he could see the pain and suffering to the millions of people who would be foreclosed on when they failed to make payments. He did not. At that time he had to sell that property. The point is the whole thing was caused by Liberal Democrats like Senator Dodds and Barney Frank. They just wanted to give to the poor and let the rest pay for it. Well the rest is all the share holders of the big banks today. But the smell in 2009 was God Awful. Because of the loss of so many mortgages, do you recall what Obama did to the small banks? He and his went out and raised the bar of bank qualification and then closed a gazillion of smaller banks across the country. All their books of business were then pushed on to the larger banks. Remember? I’ll bet many of you changed banks because of what Obama did. Rooster certainly did. Recall Santa Barbara Bank and Trust. No more. Gone, but the smell lingers on.
Well let’s come to 2011 until today. The big banks were then held to blame for participating in the rotten loans the Federal Government had demanded. It started in 2011 when Bank of America ponied up 8.5 billion in fines. Yes for taking the loans the Federal Government set up. Then in 2012 Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan, Chase Bank of Am. And Ally all paid 25 billion. You say Bank of American again? Don’t ask. Then HSBC was hit for 2 billion, and UBS for 1.5 Billion. Rooster won’t detail them, but the partial total in 2013 was 34 billion, 2014, 35.75 billion and Rooster does not have the total for 2015. Just in what Rooster can find the total is well over the annual budgets of most states and is almost the same as one of Brown’s budgets in liberal California.
So who has paid for the liberals mistakes? All the shareholders of all the little banks that were destroyed (Do not forget the thousands and thousands who lost their jobs.) and all of the shareholders of all the big banks . Who does not lose? Barney Franks and Dodds and their cohorts who started it, and all the Bank officers who would not fight the fight and let the people see where the real smell is coming from. If Rooster was the new president he would appoint Winston to conduct an investigation as to where all these fines went, and pull up all the cover-up mess, until the real cause is exposed. There is no doubt it would fall right into the lap of the liberal Senators and Representatives then in command. Why would he do that? Because it would be such a wonderful education for those around today.

(OR: Conservatives of a different color.. talked.)
Bet most of you missed this one. It was the other night on Fox News hosted by John Stossel. Rooster was under the weather and started working the T.V. He was lucky to come upon it. Winston enjoyed it, so sit back and Rooster will tell you all about it. If you search for Fox Business News, John Stossel you still can probably preview the show.
The Libertarian party is generally listed as the number three party in the U.S. It will have its convention on May 27, 28, and 29 at the Rosen Center Hotel and Resort in Orlando Florida. At number three it boasts registered membership of around 325,000 thousand. This is a bit off center, because they are not in some States, and membership and registration to vote are two different things. For example the GOP is number 2 in the U.S. with 41.2 million registered voters and the Democrat/Socialist (The American Socialist part disbanded in 2008, since the Democrat Party was taking all the air out of its sails.) party is the biggest with 43.5 million registered. These figures change daily as people in different states move from party to party. No question, by any measure the Libertarian party is tiny in comparison to the two major parties. As number three we still need to know.
Anyway John Stossel pulled together three of their Presidential candidates. There are about 9. He conducted a debate, with audience and all the trappings. The event size was considerably smaller, but nevertheless it was nice to see Fox cover it. His guest candidates were just three, Gary Johnson, John McAfee, and Austin Peterson. John Stossel was the sole moderator, but the responses were well done and informative. Their answers were pretty much the platform of the party. Rooster ( his pooka), Winston agreed that there was not one of the candidates who stood out as a barn storming, get out the vote type of guy, but they gave it the old college try. Let’s take a look at the major points made.
They are stanch supporters of individual rights and stanch demanders of little governmental interference with individual choices. Such things as the right to life, to speech, to action and to property. If you want to consume something you have that right limited by only injury to others. For example drugs should be the choice of the individual not the State. Religion or the lack thereof is inviolate. They demand Government transparency. The Government should be kept out of abortion. All the Bill of rights should be followed without qualification. In the world of economics, the State is limited to defending private property rights, adjudicate disputes, and provide a legal framework for voluntary trade. Government is prohibited from redistribution of wealth, managing trade. They support a clean and fresh environment in which they claim the Government is the worst polluter. Energy should not be subsidized. Income tax should be repealed and the IRS turned to dust, after a balanced budget amendment is passed. They want free trade and no governmental subsidies or guarantees. In the labor business arena they want freedom and no governmental interference. Probably means they support a ban on compulsory Union contracts, since they would violate individual choice. With health they want an open and free market. No Governmental run dole system for hypochondriacs. Retirement is an entirely free deal for individuals which means Social Security will be phased out and private plans encouraged. In national security, a strong military, but a freeze on foreign entanglements because we should not be an international peace force. As to immigration they have an interesting take. They are in support of free movement across borders with the Government simply providing restricted entry to those who pose a threat to security, health or property. (Pretty open) They condemn bigotry as irrational and repugnant So, on any issue they will opt for individual rights over governmental control.
In short, the fair thing to say is they believe freedom will ring the correct chord, if Government will simply get out of the way. They feel people in Government will continue to develop more power for themselves and they are opposed to this ego trip.
