random thoughts

Recommended Posts

I needed a break from household chores so....

Average cost per person to visit Disneyland = $200.00 and with an average of 44,000 visitors per day we approach 9 million dollars per day.  Average cost to attend an NFL game = $500.00.  Yet, people complain about paying a nickel for health care.

Shopping carts.  Are they that hard to return to where they belong?  Do these people live the rest of their life's this way?

Turn signals.  Too weak to lift an arm to turn them on?

Hunting related - Road hunters are simply poachers  I guess they do not care if they are.

We raise the minimum wage to a "livable wage" (whatever that is) and the cost of a Whopper or Big Mac now costs twice as much and the cost of a large pizza is now $15.00.  Or, we have half as many workers doing twice the work using inferior supplies.

AOC's money handouts to the "poor" goes into affect and nobody wants to work anymore, which would end the "livable wage" discussion.

One final thought (for now), should our government leaders, from local to federal, ever get their act together and do their job for the betterment of the people, I am sure it would cause a ripple that would be the end of life as we would all die from shock.

"Free" if you come here illegally and go to the people's republic of California.  Motivation/Incentive?  Don't stop there though, give them "free" college too.  And yes those are also the ones who will come here and burn our flags and complain about being disadvantaged. 

My take don't let them in in the first place and those who don't like it need to get the heck out.  Build a wall around ca and give it and its "lawmakers"/politicians to Mexico.  Cut ALL federal funding to ca.

Lazy a....s, waaaay too many times watched those who do this and it is often times surprising.  And they have on multiple occasions managed to leave them in the lot where they end up against our vehicles.  Lazy self serving who jerks care about noone else.

Big pet peave of mine.  Seems the norm around here, and those who don't return their shopping carts are often times the very same ones I see who do this.  Yeah the same ones who ride your bumpers and who cut you off in traffic with no signal.  The non driving idiots are of a certain type that seems to be more common than those of us who use common sense and courtesy.

Poachers are poachers.  Those who knowingly engage in game violations are poachers, think we had a good discussion on this not too long back.

Been saying this for a very long time.  Simple economics.  The left just does not get it.  Raise the min wage, you raise the cost of goods and inflation.  Hurts working class people and helps absolutely noone.  Seems more people in this country would understand this and get it, but obviously with the support the left gets, either people don't get it or there are more people out there that are dependent on the govt than what we think.  The entitlement generation.

OR, maybe just maybe the left does get it and this is all part of their plan to make the majority of this country reliant on the govt.  That is the idea of socialism after all, isn't it?

You sure know how to get me going Dave.  aoc is a real winner.  Her plans are pure genius, and all of her followers are on some level....  Seems more and more of the left are taking up her plan which is really pretty damned scary.  Sadly a growing number of otherwise intelligent kids who are educated have been brainwashed to believe the nonsense spewed by these people.

No meat.  Put out of work millions of folks in this country, with her going green plan, screw all of us who rely on fossil fuels.  We will be bringing back the horse and buggies, oh wait, no horses they create flatulence that contributes to greenhouse emissions.  So how the heck do goods get transported, how do kids get to schools, how do people who live 15 miles from the nearest town commute?  Ignorance!  Ummm yeah, who pays for all of this and how........

The idea of any of these liberals running getting in the presidency should scare any logical common sense person in this country.

While Trump was honestly not my first choice, I do think we need more like him who want to rid the govt of the deadbeats who obstruct and only serve themselves.  Got to give the man credit for doing what he said he was going to do.  I do however think I said well before hand that he would be met with the crap he has had to deal with.  That in a nutshell imo is why so many in Washington do not like the man.  He calls them out for what they are and he is making an effort to actually do what he promised voters that he would.

Final thought of mine on this for now is why?  Why is there so much support in this country for this mentality that there is even a party that can hold support of nearing half the voters of this country?  What as a country really are we?  How have we become so soft that we have to be so sensitive around so much?

Another thought........... gotta stop thinking.  Governor's tags, sold at auctions, under the guise of raising money for conservation are another way in which hunting is being commercialized and sold to the wealthy.  There is little transparency as to where the money goes.  If you were to look at Denny Austad (of the Spider Bull story) and the money he has spent to hunt Antelope Island, it is apparent that the average hunter has no chance to hunt there.  I do not know Denny, he may be a great guy, but I do not think his wealth should allow him a coveted hunt year after year.  Also, some states issue tags to outfitters and landowners to sell for commercial gain from a public resource.  Are we headed in the direction of hunting as it exists in parts of Europe?  The weapon you hunt with kept in a government controlled locker and checked-out the morning you hunt and back to the locker at the end of the day.  The cost to hunt?  Beyond comprehension.
