AMAZING FUTURE FACTS!

AMAZING FUTURE FACTS!

I have no idea who compiled this look into the future and the real impact that I may live long enough to actually see some of this happen. The scary part in my opinion is the education systems are not prepared for this explosion of need. If we maintain the radical activity of our universities to prepare students to riot, shut down freeways and resist law enforcement instead of keeping pace with the future outlined below America will be a second-rate technology country in five years. What this picture does not show is where the intelligence that creates these nearly unbelievable future resides. My friend ED Johnson shared this with me and I have reduced some material to hope more people will not only read this and they will share it with every American they know. My apology for the unusual format irregularities in indentations and weird spacing. I have no idea how to make it look professional. At nearly 87 my education and age have seen innovations like WordPress and computers leave me behind. My youngest grand-daughter, Emma Felske, who is now 15 set-up my now obsolete cell phone when she was 10.  I have smart TV sets who are smarter than I will ever be. C Brewer

  1. In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years and, most people won’t see it coming.

Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again? Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law so as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age.

  1. Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.
  2. Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.
  3. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.
  4. Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.
  5. In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM’s

Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only omniscient specialists will remain.

6A. Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses.

  1. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

 

  1. Autonomous cars : In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. The very young children of today will never get a driver’s license and will never own a car.

8A. It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6 million mi (10 million km). That will save a million lives world-wide each year.

8B. Most car companies will doubtless become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, and Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.

8C. Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

  1. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.
  1. Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.
  2. Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.
  3. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.
  4. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that simply cannot continue – technology will take care of that strategy.
  5. With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

    15 Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the          “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breathe              into it.

  1. It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world-class medical analysis, nearly for free. Goodbye, self-serving medical practitioners and establishments.
  2. 3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.
  3. Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.
  4. At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.

   19A. In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-storey office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being                     produced will be 3D printed.

  1. Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

    20A. If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea.  Any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure               in the 21st century.

     20B. Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be                  enough new jobs in such a short time. This will require a rethink on wealth distribution. (This is the fact that Congress                      will screw up for sure.  CB)

  1. Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields.
  2. Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore.
  3. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).
  4. There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you’re in. By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they’re telling the truth and when they’re not – it will ultimately compel all politicians to be truthful (a truly unique & novel occurrence).

    25 BY 2020 (or sooner – some might suggest this is happening now) WHAT A UNIVERSITY STUDENT LEARNS IN THE FIRST             YEAR OF A THREE YEAR DEGREE – WILL BE IRRELEVANT AND REDUNDANT BY THE TIME THE THIRD YEAR IS                        COMPLETED!    ANON

This last prediction is happening now and the ones who now graduate with degrees in “Protesting”, “Tree Hugging”, “Pipe Line Disruption” and “Illegal Alien Protecting” might have trouble finding jobs. The sugar daddies who pay them to oppose everything like George Soros, The Koch’s and other billionaires will croak someday. C Brewer  

WAKE UP AMERICA!

My old friend Jack Peck, older that I am, sent me this message. I will share it with you and provide some personal comments at the end. C Brewer

This is something every person in America must know!

As President George W. Bush’s top speech writer, Marc Thiessen (The Kelly File on FOX) was provided unique access to the CIA program used for interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM).

Now, his riveting new book, Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published.

Here is an excerpt from Courting Disaster:  “Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house in Rawalpindi. A few hours earlier they had received a text message from an informant inside the house. It read: “I am with KSM.”  Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody. In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.”

Once in custody, KSM is defiant. He refuses to answer questions, informing his captors that he will tell them everything when he gets to America and sees his lawyer. But KSM is not taken to America to see a lawyer; Instead he is taken to a secret CIA “black site” in an undisclosed location.  Upon arrival, KSM finds himself in the complete control of Americans. He does not know where he is, how long he will be there, or what his fate will be. Despite his circumstances, KSM still refuses to talk. He spews contempt at his interrogators, telling them Americans are weak, lack resilience and are unable to do what is necessary to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals. He has trained to resist interrogation. When he is asked for information about future attacks, he tells his questioners scornfully: “Soon, you will know.”

It becomes clear he will not reveal the information using traditional interrogation techniques. So he undergoes a series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved for use only on the most high-value detainees. The techniques include waterboarding. He begins telling his CIA de-briefers about active al Qaeda plots to launch attacks against the United States and other Western targets. He holds classes for CIA officials, using a chalkboard to draw a picture of al Qaeda’s operating structure, financing, communications, and logistics. He identifies al Qaeda travel routes and safe havens and helps intelligence officers make sense of documents and computer records seized in terrorist raids. He identifies voices in intercepted telephone calls, and helps officials understand the meaning of coded terrorist communications. He provides information that helps our intelligence community capture other high-ranking terrorists.

KSM’s questioning, and that of other captured terrorists, produces more than 6,000 intelligence reports, which are shared across the intelligence community, as well as with our allies across the world. In one of these reports, KSM describes in detail the revisions he made to his failed 1994-1995 plan known as the “Bojinka plot” to blow up a dozen airplanes carrying some 4,000 passengers over the Pacific Ocean. Years later, an observant CIA officer notices the activities of a cell being followed by British authorities appear to match KSM’s description of his plans for a Bojinka-style attack. In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot.  On the night of Aug. 9, 2006, they launch a series of raids in a northeast London suburb that lead to the arrest of two dozen al Qaeda terrorist suspects. They find a USB thumb-drive in the pocket of one of the men with security details for Heathrow airport, and information on seven Trans-Atlantic flights that were scheduled to take off within hours of each other:

* United Airlines Flight 931 to San Francisco departing at 2:15 PM

* Air Canada Flight 849 to Toronto departing at 3:00 PM

* Air Canada Flight 865 to Montreal departing at 3:15 PM

* United Airlines Flight 959 to Chicago departing at3:40 PM

* United Airlines Flight 925 to Washington departing at4:20 PM

* American Airlines Flight 131 to New York departing at 4:35 PM

* American Airlines Flight 91 to Chicago departing at4:50 PM

They seize bomb-making equipment and hydrogen peroxide to make liquid explosives. And they find the chilling martyrdom videos the suicide bombers had prepared.  Today, if you asked an average person on the street what they know about the 2006 airlines plot, most would not be able to tell you much. Few Americans are aware of the fact al Qaeda had planned to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with an attack of similar scope and magnitude. And still fewer realize the terrorists’ true intentions in this plot were uncovered thanks to critical information obtained through the interrogation of the man who conceived it: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  This is only one of the many attacks stopped with the help of the CIA interrogation program established by the Bush Administration in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  In addition to helping break up these specific terrorist cells and plots, CIA questioning provided our intelligence community with an unparalleled body of information about al Qaeda.

Until the program was temporarily suspended in 2006, intelligence officials say, well over half of the information our government had about al Qaeda-how it operates, how it moves money, how it communicates, how it recruits operatives, how it picks targets, how it plans and carries out attacks-came from the interrogation of terrorists in CIA custody.  Former CIA Director George Tenet has declared: “I know this program has saved lives. I know we’ve disrupted plots. I know this program alone is worth more than what the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency put together have been able to tell us.

Former CIA Director Mike Hayden has said: “The facts of the case are that the use of these techniques against these terrorists made us safer. It really did work.”

Even Barack Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, has acknowledged: “High-value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qaeda organization that was attacking this country.”

Leon Panetta, Obama’s CIA Director, has said: “Important information was gathered from these detainees. It provided information that was acted upon.”

John Brennan, Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, when asked in an interview whether enhanced-interrogation techniques were necessary to keep America safe, replied: “Would the U. S. be handicapped if the CIA was not, in fact, able to carry out these types of detention and debriefing activities, I would say yes.”

On Jan. 22, 2009, President Obama issued Executive Order 13491, closing the CIA program and directing that, henceforth, all interrogations by U. S. personnel must follow the techniques contained in the Army Field Manual.  The morning of the announcement, Mike Hayden was still in his post as CIA Director. He called White House Counsel Greg Craig and told him bluntly: “You didn’t ask, but this is the CIA officially non-concurring.” The president went ahead anyway, overruling the objections of the agency.

A few months later, on April 16, 2009, President Obama ordered the release of four Justice Department memos that described in detail the techniques used to interrogate KSM and other high-value terrorists. This time, not just Hayden (who was now retired) but five CIA directors – including Obama’s own director, Leon Panetta objected. George Tenet called to urge against the memos’ release. So did Porter Goss. So did John Deutch.

Hayden says: “You had CIA directors in a continuous unbroken stream to 1995 calling saying, ‘Don’t do this.'”

In addition to objections from the men who led the agency for a collective 14 years, the President also heard objections from the agency’s covert field operatives. A few weeks earlier, Panetta had arranged for the eight top officials of the Clandestine Service to meet with the President. It was highly unusual for these clandestine officers to visit the Oval Office, and they used the opportunity to warn the President that releasing the memos would put agency operatives at risk. The President reportedly listened respectfully, and then ignored their advice.

With these actions, Barack Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history.  But how many people know this? Only the few that read this message.

I hope you read the book, I will. America will suffer for a long time due to the deliberate or stupid actions of the most hate filled President these now Dis-United States has ever lived through. I wonder how many more Americans will die due to the Demoncratic Party. They will never stop trying and I still believe Trump is their next target. Then after finishing the destruction of America as a Republic, destroying Israel will not be far behind.    C Brewer 3-23-17

POOR SPOILED ELITISTS ENRAGED!

My friend Ron Jenkins shared this message with Campaign glass pictures I deleted to not enrage these poor mistreated merchants of manufactured news. Poor babies have to suffer the pain of flying first class on the airlines as Tillerson has decided to save the tax payers some money. What a refreshing new approach to Washington’s waste filled life of the “Rich and Famous”. If you feel sorry for these VIP’s don’t waste my time telling me.

The Story

A Reuters filing en route to Asia showcases the bitterness, anger and seething rage of U.S. journalists who have been forced to fly First-Class Commercial to cover Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s Asia trip.

State Department correspondents are used to the exclusive wide-body private charters of the U.S. federal government’s airline fleet.  Previous heads of the Department of State have flown aboard Air Force 3.  Normally a Boeing 757.  At the very worst Air Force 3 would be a C17 Globemaster.

However, T-Rex is taking a smaller jet to Asia and only one journalist accompanies him.  To make matters exponentially worse, T-Rex did not select a journalist from the corporate stable of the refined and pedigreed media elites.

We can only imagine how Andrea Mitchell must be seething at having to take simple first-class commercial flight accommodations with ordinary people.  The scope of the almost unimaginable horror she has to face will soon pour from her pursed and vengeful lips.  We can predict a retaliatory report soon from the wrath of the ignored elitist within NBC.  This shall be, as they say, epic.

Secretary Tillerson has rebuked customs and norms.  The traveling correspondents will have to pass through customs and passport checks as if they are ordinary travelers.  There is a very real possibility no-one will recognize them or care diligently for their very individual and specific needs.

Can you imagine Mrs. Alan Greenspan flying all the way to Asia from the Eastern Seaboard and having to do that on a commercial flight?  My God, have we really dropped our standards of decency that far…

Air Force 3 – Not being used by T-Rex

Oh yeah, the pontificating journalist elites are pi**ed off.   After traveling with every possible indulgence aboard exclusive State Department accommodations with Secretary Clinton and Secretary Kerry, you cannot even fathom how angry they are right now without private dining, DoS chefs, shaved chocolates and Cristal mimosas.

None of this is me joking.  This bunch of snobs having to fly commercial is unheard of.

They are ready to tear into Secretary Tillerson in every single filed report.  Just watch what you see on TV:

(Reuters) U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is traveling to Asia this week accompanied by only one reporter, a White House correspondent from the Independent Journal Review (IJR), a digital news outlet founded in 2012 by former Republican political operatives.

The IJR said in a statement late Tuesday the State Department last week offered one of its reporters, Erin McPike, a place aboard the Secretary’s aircraft on his trip this week to Asia.

The State Department had previously told reporters covering Tillerson’s trip to South Korea, Japan, and China that he would not be taking reporters on his plane and that they would have to fly commercially, breaking with decades of precedent stretching back to Henry Kissinger.

Major news organizations complained, among them the BBC, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post and Reuters.

The State Department Correspondents Association, which represents reporters who cover U.S. diplomacy, said in a statement that it was “disappointed” Tillerson chose to travel to Asia without a full contingent of media “or even a pool reporter”.

“After saying it was unable to accommodate press on the Secretary’s plane to Asia due to space and budget constraints, the State Department offered a unilateral seat to one reporter,” the statement said.

“Several of our members have traveled commercially to meet Secretary Tillerson on the ground in Asia. We expect that the diplomatic press corps will be afforded access to Secretary Tillerson equal to that given to the reporter on the plane.”

A spokesman for IJR, Matt Manda, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether McPike would file pool reports to colleagues, or whether IJR had any comment on the SDCA’s statement.

For decades, secretaries of state have nearly always invited media to travel with them. In rare cases, particularly late in a secretary’s tenure, some outlets have declined the invitations, such as for former Secretary John Kerry’s December 2016 trip to Saudi Arabia.

Republican secretaries of state Alexander Haig, George Shultz, James Baker, and Condoleezza Rice routinely took 10 or more journalists on their overseas trips, even to conflict zones such as Lebanon and Central America.

Up through Tuesday, just hours before Tillerson was scheduled to leave, the State Department declined to confirm whether there would be any reporters on Tillerson’s plane.

Acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a phone briefing with reporters on Tuesday that the agency was considering “having a seat available” on his plane.

“We’ve been very clear, frankly, that this is a smaller footprint all around, and this is the Secretary’s decision, to travel with a smaller footprint,” Toner said. “To some degree, it’s a cost-saving measure.”  (read more)

The rest of the article is Reuters tearing into IJR for having the audacity to accept a seat on the flight with T-Rex.   This is like High School mean girls taken to exponential levels of vitriol and hatred.

This is going to be ugly.  Very, very ugly.   ANON

The Coyote Principle!

My thanks to Ron Jenkins for sharing this scenario of what would actually happen under conditions described. Everyone needs a break from watching the main stream media distort the truth in every news report. The Dis-United States can be united again if we replaced all 535 Congresspersons, 889 Federal Judges and eliminated several Federal agencies, privatized all Governmental operations that have been unionized and made Lobbying a crime. Enjoy the following story. C Brewer   

The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor’s dog, then bites the Governor.

The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.

The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a “coyote awareness program” for residents of the area.

The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The Governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re the nature of coyotes.

PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.

Meanwhile in TEXAS.          

The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail.

A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.

The Governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

The buzzards eat the dead coyote and the governor’s dog.

And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.

JUDGES AND BUREAUCRATS GONE MAD!

This is the first time I have never published two articles the same day but the idiotic action of two more Federal Judges to act as they were elected President  is too much. Our Nation is doomed when these two ill informed political quacks can ignore our written laws to enact political decisions that could cause danger to the people. These are the most dangerous decisions made openly by uninformed power hungry individuals in my lifetime. I may be the only American alive that is upset but I will speak my piece before these over paid tyrants rule that “Free Speech” is against their laws.

Congress authorizes a set number of Federal judge positions, or judgeship’s, for each court level. Since 1869, Congress has authorized 9 positions for the Supreme Court. As of 2007, it had authorized 179 court of appeals judgeship’s and 678 district court judgeship’s.

Folks we are now witnessing a takeover of the United States Government by a band of 886 supposedly impartial appointees approved to serve as Judges in a Court of Law. We are only allowed to have one President, one Vice President and 565 individuals who have been elected as Congresspersons.

In the past month we have witnessed a takeover of our Government by a group of unelected Progressive Judges who have no intelligence knowledge related to decisions they are making that have and could cause terror attacks by our enemies.

They are making safety decisions on request from Progressive Groups that usurp the Constitutional authority granted to the President based on intelligence that these Judges have no clearance to even know the dangers. This is like playing Russian Roulette with the Judge who is pointing the loaded gun at your and my head and with no danger of hitting him or herself. If they would play this game with the American Communists Lawyers Union (ACLU) who would even care.

We have a Supreme Court of the land that sits on its “Robed Asses” as does nothing to stop this idiotic waste of time, money and possible loss of innocent American lives. Worse we have a Congress that could act immediately to stop this desire for a Judge to get face time in the Media that promotes this nonsense.

Congress would take so long today to declare war with an enemy that they would still be arguing, they like to use the word debating, or would probably be on the golf course or the local bars when the enemy raised their flag over the US Capitol building.

We the people elected a new President to stop this nonsense. Those noted above along with the thousands of Government employees who are breaking laws to stop the President have met their match. These spoiled, whining, overpaid, under-worked assholes better cinch up their big girl panties, go to work and shut up. In reality most of them do not have the intelligence to see the bulldozer coming so “Saddle Up Buttercup” and get your resume current. As the majority of them are lawyers I doubt if there are as many ambulances to chase as there are Lawyers?

Watching our own people hate each other is worse than rabies. What is happening today is we are our own enemy and is the worst event to happen in my 86+ years. Wake up Americans unless you really hope our Republic will self-destruct. I would like all 886 Federal Judges to run for President and all of them win. This would cancel their lifetime appointments and maybe save the Republic. If we could do the same thing and get rid of all 585 Congresspersons at one time it we could pay off the national debt. Let the States manage themselves and half of them will go belly up. Even Mexico would not want California again.     

They will try to kill Trump but they better have a solid plan. The new Sheriff is able, capable and aimed in the right direction. A message to all of you who are trying to sink the Trump boat. If you get squashed in the process, the term most used to describe your mindset is “STUPID”. It might take anyone else a lifetime to stop the hate in America. Watch Trump do it in less than four years and change the laws and procedures that permit Government Employees to drop anchor instead of row the boat.

Go Navy!

Whiskey!

If everyone is tired of 24/7/365 current politics and the mass of idiots that we call Congress and other Government Employees, how about a break. My friend Peter Forrest shared a story about a Texas politician who was a master of answering questions. The following story is a recorded exchange that might give you a view of a politician who served some 65 years ago when I was a young man of 21 or 22. At least politicians of yore were eloquent when answering possible touchy issues. You be the judge of his response to a simple question.  C Brewer

 

In 1952, Armon M. Sweat, Jr., a member of the Texas House of Representatives, was asked about his position on whiskey.

What follows is his exact answer (taken from the Political Archives of Texas):

“If you mean whiskey, the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean that evil drink that topples Christian men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness, and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fiber of my being.

 

However, if by whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the elixir of life, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; if you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life’s great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into Texas treasuries untold millions of dollars each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation, then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favor of it.

This is my position, and as always, I refuse to compromise on matters of principle.”

Sort’a puts a tear in your eye when you see how politicians of today would run like a deer to avoid answering such a simple question. It would take a Committee, 500 lawyers, 250 law clerks and ten years to get an answer to a simple question today. It would more than likely be tabled to wait for enough years that the person who asked the question was dead to close the inquiry. Progress or regress? Can you add value to this waste of time? Did it bring a smile?

OUR GOVERNMENT TODAY – GO, WHOA and NO!

I will be the first to admit that I would love to see America “United” again before I croak. In my life I watched as a boy when the people banded together and unbelievably won WWII only because we were united. I served in the US Navy during the Korean war when again the people were united. I watched America live through a great depression when again too many people were dirt poor but few gave up. Then unfortunately LBJ assumed the Presidency when John Kennedy was assassinated less than 15 miles where I was working that infamous day in Dallas. This was the beginning of the downhill slide in the 1960’s when American cowards surfaced and started the revolutionary mission to destroy the United States of America. A war in Vietnam was fought to help the politicians and bankers gain more control over the people. We paid with some 60,000  young American lives and ended up with eight years of the Clinton’s and eight more with the Obama’s.

Along came Reagan and some sanity surfaced and America again gained stature worldwide. The people again united to strengthen our Republic and we had a few years of prosperity and peace with Reagan, our last great leader until January 20, 2017. We still have wars in three Muslim countries that have killed a few more thousand young Americans to help the politicians and bankers. We can stay and fight in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq for a thousand years and it will never help the United States, Europe or anyone. Anyone, and I have, who spends time in the sandy expanse called the Middle East can see in a heartbeat that these people will never become westernized or Christians. Hell will freeze over before anyone will change there folks. Ask the Russians who were happy to see us bog down like they did in Afghanistan.  

Then the people voted to hope that Donald Trump could force Congress, the Supreme Court and the bloated Federal Government to again follow our Constitution and create jobs for Americans. For the last several years the Washington hierarchy  has decided that our Federal laws only apply to selective citizens and politicians. Even Presidents, especially Obama who even issued orders to ignore certain laws while our Judicial Branch sat on their Royal Robed butts and did nothing. Even worse Congress watched the laws they enacted ignored and decided to do nothing.

The Republicans won the whole taco, the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The only problem is they are about as organized as one-legged man at an ass kicking contest. At first they appeared ready to kick ass and take names. Unfortunately they discovered that they are leaderless. Paul Ryan is trying hard to help Trump get things done that he promised the folks. With the exception of a few dissidents the House is boldly moving forward. They have listened to the people who want action not stagnation. The folks want jobs. Ryan is leading the conservatives on a path back to common sense. Unless their wheels fall off the House, backed by the President are on the “GO”

The Senate, never a group to understand anything the past several years, is actually a body of pompous, arrogant and for most part useless debaters who could not even agree what day it is  unless someone bombed an American city again. They are equally divided into three segments. The Republicans are divided into some “Go’s, and some Whoa’s and the Democrats who have become 100% “no’s and continue to make the GOP look as stupid as they have become. God almighty could not get these Republicans to sing from one song book unless they were voting to increase their own salaries or retirement benefits. The RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) are getting braver each day and I hope Trump helps every one of these dissidents defeated in their next election cycle. The two main screamers, McCain and Graham should be honest and join the Demoncrats who they best support. Others are getting braver and need to be axed.

Hopefully Donald Trump will full fill his promise to drain the Washington swamp. I have no doubt he will change the way our government does business unless he is murdered like Justice Scalia. It would be nice if all of the Demoncrats were shipped to California, Oregon and Washington States. Then let them secede from the union This would allow the 13 million illegal aliens to be together again where they are accepted. Like an old saying about the the slaves which was “We should have picked our own cotton”, we should mow our own yards and harvest our own vegetables.   C Brewer    

 

AN AMERICAN VETERAN STORY!

My great friend, Dr. Peter Forrest sent me the following article. This brought back memories only a veteran could possibly understand. This took me back to the day I asked my parents to allow me to join the Navy Reserve at 17 in 1947. Just think, how many American boys have died serving in the military, especially when this boy decided to give it a try so soon after WWII was over shortly after I was 15. I have never shared all of this with anyone. 

My real desire was to continue learning as the opportunity to attend college was not possible for me and there were no jobs for kids. It was still difficult for the veterans of WWII to find jobs and any hope of a scholarship at that time was for the veterans as it should have been. My hope to fulfill my desire to serve on active duty was answered and I was sworn in on March 15, 1948. I will not bore you with the pride I had at that moment or the details of my service as I was not involved IN the war in Korea that started not too long after I enlisted. I served some 42 months on active duty before I finished my reserve enlistment and was Honorably discharged on August 30, 1952. This was the day before my 22nd birthday. 
The greatest thing the service did for me was to make a man out of a boy, and fast. If Americans really wanted to re-establish discipline, pride respect in their children they would support mandatory military training for every boy and girl at 18 whether they graduated high school or not. There would not be gangs and violence we see today and the prisons might not be full of young people. Please enjoy this wonderful story.     
                                         A great article…………….
This is a well written article about a father who put several of his kids through expensive colleges but one son wanted to be a Marine. Interesting observation by this dad.  See below.  A very interesting commentary that says a lot about our society, By Frank Schaeffer of the Washington Post.
Before my son became a Marine, I never thought much about who was defending me. Now when I read of the war on terrorism or the coming conflict in Iraq, it cuts to my heart. When I see a picture of a member of our military who has been killed, I read his or her name very carefully. Sometimes I cry.
In 1999, when the barrel-chested Marine recruiter showed up in dress blues and bedazzled my son John, I did not stand in the way. John was headstrong, and he seemed to understand these stern, clean men with straight backs and flawless uniforms. I did not. I live in the Volvo-driving, higher education-worshiping North Shore of Boston. I write novels for a living. I have never served in the military.
It had been hard enough sending my two older children off to Georgetown and New York University. John’s enlisting was unexpected, so deeply unsettling. I did not relish the prospect of answering the question, “So where is John going to college?” from the parents who were itching to tell me all about how their son or daughter was going to Harvard. At the private high school John attended, no other students were going into the military.
“But aren’t the Marines terribly Southern?” asked one perplexed mother while standing next to me at the brunch following graduation. “What a waste, he was such a good student,” said another parent. One parent (a professor at a nearby and rather famous university) spoke up at a school meeting and suggested that the school should “ carefully evaluate what went wrong.”
When John graduated from three months of boot camp on Parris Island, 3000 parents and friends were on the parade deck stands. We parents and our Marines not only were of many races but also were representative of many economic classes. Many were poor. Some arrived crammed in the backs of pickups, others by bus. John told me that a lot of parents could not afford the trip.
We in the audience were white and Native American. We were Hispanic, Arab, and African American, and Asian. We were former Marines wearing the scars of battle, or at least baseball caps emblazoned with battles’ names. We were Southern whites from Nashville and skinheads from New Jersey, black kids from Cleveland wearing ghetto rags and white ex-cons with ham-hock forearms defaced by jailhouse tattoos. We would not have been mistaken for the educated and well-heeled parents gathered on the lawns of John’s private school a half-year before.
After graduation one new Marine told John, “Before I was a Marine, if I had ever seen you on my block I would’ve probably killed you just because you were standing there.” This was a serious statement from one of John’s good friends, a black ex-gang member from Detroit who, as John said, “would die for me now, just like I’d die for him.
My son has connected me to my country in a way that I was too selfish and insular to experience before. I feel closer to the waitress at our local diner than to some of my oldest friends. She has two sons in the Corps. They are facing the same dangers as my boy. When the guy who fixes my car asks me how John is doing, I know he means it. His younger brother is in the Navy.
Why were I and the other parents at my son’s private school so surprised by his choice? During World War II, the sons and daughters of the most powerful and educated families did their bit. If the idea of the immorality of the Vietnam War was the only reason those lucky enough to go to college dodged the draft, why did we not encourage our children to volunteer for military service once that war was done?
Have we wealthy and educated Americans all become pacifists? Is the world a safe place? Or have we just gotten used to having somebody else defend us? What is the future of our democracy when the sons and daughters of the janitors at our elite universities are far more likely to be put in harm’s way than are any of the students whose dorms their parents clean?
I feel shame because it took my son’s joining the Marine Corps to make me take notice of who is defending me. I feel hope because perhaps my son is part of a future “greatest generation. “As the storm clouds of war gather, at least I know that I can look the men and women in uniform in the eye. My son is one of them. He is the best I have to offer. He is my heart.
“Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out.”
I know that the candy-ass, spoiled youth of today that have majored in demonstrations, violence and ignoring our laws will never know how proud the dad in this story had to have been. I have no doubt that if America were attacked today like it was in 1941 we would never be able to defend ourselves with the cowards that ran to Canada to avoid the Vietnam War. My brother, Lt. Col. James Brewer, served 24 years in the Army and was heckled, booed and threatened after he served two tours in that war that was fought for the Democrats and the banks. We have a similar event in Afghanistan that is a waste of life and trillions of dollars that will never change the way these people desire to live their lives.
To the young marine in the story my message is “SEMPER FI”. I have a shirt that best expresses my feelings. On the front over my heart it says “Veteran”. On the back above an American Flag it says, “I AM NOT A HERO”, below the flag it says, “I HAVE WALKED BESIDE A FEW”. My brother died at 55, an unhappy warrior who’s country turned there back on. He and my friend John Booker are just two of those “HERO’s” who I have been proud to have walked beside.   
 
GOD SAVE AMERICA, the Demoncrats  will give up. Comments please.   C Brewer

WHAT HAPPENED – JUST THE FACTS MAN!

Is just the facts folks. You can lie, avoid the law, invite radicals into America to incite terrorism and waste billions but some day the Demoncrats will have to pay for this folly. These charts tell the story of how the poor and the working  class folks have been screwed again by the politicians. Some were sent into exile and hopefully next year enough Americans will throw another massive group of Congressmen out of office.  C Brewer 

If you watched President Obama’s TV farewell speech, this will surprise you since it is in direct contrast to what he claimed credit for.  How sad! 
Without doubt the worst president in at least 100 years. 
Thought you might like to see what the years of Obama did to our country.

Obama years in 9 charts…..

This is from the Feds themselves……….send this to all those you know.
Here is the real story of America ‘s decline right from their own Fed web sites.

A picture is worth a thousand words. It can’t be made any simpler than this.

Presidents I’ve Known!

My friend Jim Heck sent me this message I found fascinating and a period I remember vividly. My brother did two years in Viet Nam and retired to be humiliated by peace movement that allowed the military who served to be harassed instead of the politicians. This resulted in his death at 55 being caused by the Clintons, Kerry and the idiots who blamed the troops for the war rather than LBJ and the bankers. I hope you enjoy this earthy message by someone who also suffered the harassment I am sure my brother did. I hope you enjoy this as much as this old Navy Veteran has.   C Brewer

Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat cluster flock was all about.

I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micro management from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go below, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above Robert McNamara, LBJ, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.

After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his buns waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. He was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.

Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy Peanuts who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 and even the White House suffered the austerity.

Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they

Loved him back. Esprit d ’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy Peanuts were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.

Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.

Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the Oral Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.

I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of WWII when they were simply socialists waiting to feed him to the sharks.

Then there came the Manchurian Candidate with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been sealed. (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s illegitimate children than we do about Obama, Michelle, OR their two kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissention of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the situation that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us baloney about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries. Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had cojones to impeach this charlatan.

Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some nerve and rejects Obama’s nomination. The Libtards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros has paid demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings, Obama concedes that

Illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.

But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum. Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince them not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform.

Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote and creamed it. The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steam rolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the hag who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.

Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election was rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, batter and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.

This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the wimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America.

So for you liberal lurkers and you scared fence-sitters, kiss off. You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BUMS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril.

You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace. This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you forfeit your American citizenship, YES HE IS!!!! Go cry a river some place they need water.

“Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading”… Thomas Jefferson
