I got this in an e-mail I don’t know the author but it fits me to a “T”

 

“I used to think I was just a regular guy, but…

 

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.  I am a fiscal  and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.  I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.  I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.  I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.  I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.  I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man.  I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.  I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.  I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.  I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.  I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.  I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

 

Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!  I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!  I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

 

Funny…it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!  As if all this wasn’t enough to deal with…….I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!”

 

God Bless this guy, and God Bless the United States of America

 

Go Vote!!!   I Need to know just who the hell I am

Anti-Police Derangement Syndrome

For the purpose of votes, for the purpose of maintaining power, for the purpose of making fundamental change , and for the purpose of destroying the United States of America. The liberal news media and the people and politicians that support these goals are willing to spread lies about the police, tolerate criminal lawlessness, riot, and murder in the nations city’s

The lie that police are involved in a conspiracy to hunt down young black men in this country has been debunked in study after study (https://youtu.be/UQCQFH5wOJo  ) yet the press and the left reinforce it over and over. Why?  Who is behind this mind set? What is their motivation? To all the people that think the cold war is over, I say look again, the same evil that was present in this country in the 60s has raised its head again. 2016 and 1969 are book end years, with Islam as a kicker.

The left has taken over our intuition of higher learning, the press, and are filtering their philosophy into the institutions of the government bureaucracy. The left is using the power of these agencies to control decent and punish their opposition. This situation is far more dangerous than anything we faced in the 60s.

The left is codling the Islamist and condoning riotous behavior and demonizing police. In the back ground the left is doing all it can to effect elections using government agencies and taxpayer money to advance their cause, and doing harm to the nation in the process. The recent revelations that thousands of persons scheduled for deportation were instead granted citizenship is a glaring example. Not mention the IRS

When we point these abuses out the left dose not engage in dialog they simply start calling us names. Then they use the, everybody does it defense, blow a lot of smoke, and the press laughs it all off as politics.

Well in the words of a great orator I once knew, “Bite Me”.

The police are not a toy you can throw around like a spoiled child. They are the men and woman standing in the breach. They do a job. The job is tough. Many who try it wash out. It takes five to ten years for an officer to become fully functional. It is tragic when the fail. They are asked to make split second decisions for a population that demands they be right all the time. I would not blame them if they all got blue flu and stayed home. They won’t, but I would not blame them if they did.

The myth and Black lives Matter Lies

The myth and Black lives Matter Lies
Every credible study of police shootings of black men has concluded that there is no truth to the myth perpetuated by liberal politicians, the ACLU, NAACP and the Black Lives Matter movement is a lie. This U tube presentation lays out the argument and I urge all my readers to watch this presentation. https://youtu.be/UQCQFH5wOJo
I started in police work in 1969 after 4 years in the army and National Guard and retired in 2000. I then worked for the army as a Range tec. We Trained National Guard, and reservist for deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. I can say I have been involved in race relation of one sort or another most of my life. I am 70 now Most of my army courier was spent at post in the south in the 60s I have seen discrimination there and overseas. I have written a book about my experiences “ A View From The Street / River City Policing” You can download it for a couple bucks on amazon. If you care to read it all the proceeds go to VFW Post 5564 (See Help the vets at VFW Post 5564 on Face Book)
My firs introduction to racial hatred came from a black female when I was in the 7th grade She slapped me across the face with a ruler for talking to another black girl in language arts class you could read the ruler marks on my face for a week after that one. Before the 7th grade I had never been exposed to any racial bigotry I knew that there was something going on because King TV in Seattle ran PAS’s a little jingle that went
“ OH! The Peach pit said to the apple core the color of our skin don’t matter anymore”
I figured out what they were talking about in that 7th Grade language arts class. Those black kids hated us white kids. I got the hell beat out of me a couple times after that by mean whit kids and black kids that just didn’t like me because I had friends of all races.
The year was 1962 I took a summer job at a locale moving company my uncle worked there and he hooked some of us boys up with the job. One day a black kid came in to the dispatcher and asked for a job. The dispatcher took his application and although I knew we were shorthanded that day as soon as the kid left; he round filed the application, with a remark I won’t repeat here. The next payday I quit I told my uncle I could not work for folks like that I didn’t think my Great grandfather his grandfather a Methodist preacher would like us working for that guy. The next spring I took a job in Alaska at a fishing cannery. I returned in June and joined the National Guard and a year later I transferred to the regular army
Army life on post blacks and whites served together ate together slept together trained and suffered together, but when we stepped off post all that togetherness ended. It was not that some of us would not have hung out together. You didn’t dare! If I took a black friend to a white area he would catch hell! If he took me to sugar town I would catch hell! It all went back to that 7th grade language arts class if some of us wanted to be friends the haters would step in and end the threat.
The time has come for the good people in all races to stand up and confront the evil on both sides
The girl that wanted to be my friend in the 7th grade should have got up and clocked that ruler slapper, and I should have smacked that dispatcher that round filled the black kid’s job application!
Life is full of regrets.

This is wrong, but it is less likely to generate the thing that the patrolman fears most. That thing is a letter of complaint.

Apologize for the children, but hold them accountable. Elect politicians that will hold wrong doers accountable; police and civilian alike. Community policing can only be as effective as the community’s willingness to by in. No by in! No peace! I am sick of politicians in both party’s getting away with all the criminal crap they get away with. The double standard is painfully obvious.

A Legislative raid on the Police Pension Fund LEFF1 of Washington State

The Washington State Legislature For the Past several Years has been engaged in a cynical and extra-legal attempt to take funds that by established law, ( Ice Miller) (Talmadge-Bakenhus -V- City of Seattle)and ( Section 23 of the Washington State Constitution), can only be used to benefit the contributing members of the retirement plan. This situation on reflection is outrageous.

The State is in effect attempting to take control over the surplus in the LEFF 1 retirement to relieve a short fall in the teacher’s retirement fund. I have called this action an extra legal action. To put it bluntly it is theft!

It was theft from widows, orphans, and retired aging and disabled servants of the state. It is theft from those who answered a call to service, at a time in history when it was unpopular to enter the police profession.

To Attract Qualified applicants the State created the LEFF1 Retirement System.  The system was funded by the members. As it turns out the system was over funded and a sizable surplus has been created. One of the reasons for the surplus was the belief that in the short run a flood of retirees would stress the fund and it may have created a burden on the state. This did not happen owing in great part to the dedication of those who served prior to the establishment of the fund. They didn’t flee the service as predicted.  The carried on and By God I for one was glad for it. Yah some of them were gruff and hard but the job called for that. They both taught us and learned from us. The service made many changes. You Might say it grew up in the decades following the 1960s.

The men and woman who served under this system laid it all on the line; they don’t deserve this theft of their assets. Yes their assets!

The large sums of money sitting in the fund are apparently to great a temptation for a group of legislators bent on finding way to pay off their constituents for the votes that keep them in office. We find the actions of this group distasteful and frankly disgusting.

The proper solution to this problem is to remove the temptation. The fund should retain only 5% or 10% of the surplus and return the balance to the surviving members based on their individual service credits.

Trying to pay us off with some of the money and taking the rest is an insult. Whom do you think you are you who grind the face of the poor? What makes you think the good people of the state, once they know the facts, will let you get away with this?
