A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

Archive for the tag “Department of the Interior”


We all need to help Trump start and maintain the pumps.

Congresspersons have become nothing more than greedy power whores, thriving with the lavish gifts from the hoard of  lobbyist that did not even exist until after WWII. Although there are no numbers to evaluate I suspect that there are more lobbyist in Washington D.C. and the 50 State capitols than there are members in all of our military services. Money and other presents may not buy everyone but you can be certain if it is enough it will to buy a majority of votes.

It took a while longer but next they bowed to the unions and allowed our Federal Government employees to be protected by unions. When Congress allowed this monster to be created they really started the deficit alligator to join in on the downhill slide. If our Congress and Presidents can’t be fair to its employees they should resign. It would be interesting to see how the costs of government employees has increased in relationship to industrial workers

Another interesting comparison would be to see another cost breakdown. This would be the nonmilitary government employee cost to purchase and provide everything necessary to support the military today, versus what it costs in 1945 during a world war. Where did the thousands of Defense Department employees work during WWII when there was no Pentagon. Never forget all money needed for every Government Agency is provided by Congress.

Until Congress authorized the Department of Energy(DOE) all Government oversight and control of the Petroleum industry was part of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This happened while I was deeply involved with the energy industry. In fact I chaired a quasi Government/Industry Program for several years that was administered by the Minerals Management Service of the then (DOI) and was Policed/Audited by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This program required in some cases a lot of wasted time and records. Another peculiar requirement was it only affected two kinds of safety valves out of the hundreds of other failure modes. The one thing even bothered me more was this requirement was only required on oil and gas wells in Federal Offshore waters. After the BP blowout my first thought was they should have required this control on blowout preventers.

The DOE now has 220,000 employees and I would bet my house that the (DOI) has as many or more employees than they had when the the two were separated. Only Congress could have stopped this but they will never understand the game played by Government employees. When you can’t get bigger in bad times then turn the lobbyist loose to create a new Agency. Study how the Department of Education became one of those boondoggles.

Congress makes its own rules, why?

Congress sets its own salaries, why?

Congress determines its own pensions, Why?

Congress determines its own ethics, Why?

Congress establishes its own budgets, Why?

Congress refuses to set term limits, Why?

Finally we elected a President who likely know many more Why’s than I do. Unfortunately Congress entices the media to keep him involved with defending his every decision that he will never have time to fix Congress. The only way Congress will ever get stopped from spending is for the people to stand behind our man. If the people stay divided the America I love so much will disappear.

Do you support open borders with useless control parameters? The Democrats do, why?

Do you support confiscating all weapons and ammo owned by citizens? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support having to print all Government requirements in as many as 20+ languages, including ballots? The Democrats do, Why?  

Do you want to reinstate the hundreds of unnecessary Government regulations Trump had cancelled? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want illegal aliens and prisoners to vote in our elections? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you want to keep the treaties that have caused our companies to move the millions of our workers jobs overseas? The Democrats do, Why?

Do you support the Sanctuary Cities and States that hide illegal aliens from deportation that violates Federal Laws? The Democrats do, Why?

Democrats, if you hate our country and our laws so much it would be easier to immigrate to Canada, Australia, England, Germany, France who have Socialism you so dearly desire. If you want to fight for something try immigrating to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and help these people kill each other. Leave freedom loving Americans alone.

A bunch of us are happy to be free and we support our President to please don’t stop draining the swamp. We appreciate his vigor and reluctance to keep the pumps draining. Someday our Federal employees will have the same benefits that all of us have, including Congress. If they are elected to support the people they should have pay and benefits that we have. If they want to be equal to the leaders of industry then go to work and earn the benefits like we have to do.

All America needs are jobs and put welfare army back to work. They can replace the illegals that took their place as Americans were put on welfare. The biggest need is term limits and no Tenure for any elected or Obsessionally appointed Government Official.

I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

On my way driving home today  about 2pm I was listening to our Secretary of State testifying before a Senate committee about our duty to stop President Assad of Syria from ignoring International Laws. I will be the first to admit that my patience with insanity and supposedly intelligent people who attempt to use unmitigated bullshit before a Congressional Committee is an idiot in political clothing. Our government and Congress have reached the lowest level of hypocrisy in my 83 years as a native Texan.

As I have been using several different terms to try to see if anyone besides myself is fed up with the government screwing up everything to maintain or regain political power over a majority of American citizens, illegal aliens, felons and dead democrats. Are we all as dumb as the government believes we are?

I choose the subject, Intelligence, as I have questioned my own as I observe a President and his Cabinet of thieves and czars being able to thumb their nose at any conservative alive for trying to sound an alarm. Again I have used Wikipedia to be consistent with definitions to address specific terms.


“Intelligence has been defined in many different ways including logic, abstract thought, understanding, self-awareness, communication, learning, having emotional knowledge, retaining, planning, and problem solving.

Intelligence is most widely studied in humans, but has also been observed in animals and in plants. Artificial intelligence is the simulation of intelligence in machines.

Within the discipline of psychology, various approaches to human intelligence have been adopted. The psychometric approach is especially familiar to the general public, as well as being the most researched and by far the most widely used in practical settings.”

Let me share; I have a Master’s Degree in Management. I am a retired member of Mensa and Intertel. I am a retired Registered Professional Engineer. I had 43 years of executive management success. For some five years I chaired national committees on The Minerals Management Service branch of the US Department of the Interior regulations for Offshore Oil and Gas Safety Equipment. I wrote a Quality Standard for the American Petroleum Institute. You are invited to read some 635 articles I have posted on this blog. Do I sound like I have at least some intelligence?

If so help me understand how a President of the United States, who has no Courage as I have written, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for our military have the gonads to ask Congress to be ashamed if we do not punish Syria because they ignore the law.

The President, Vice-President, our Attorney General, the Supreme Court, our Federal Judges and Governors in most democratic states ignore our laws every day. They even prevent honest law enforcement officers at state and local level from enforcing the laws of the United States.

Why in God’s name have we become the sole source of law enforcement world-wide when we ignore our own laws? I am not condoning mistreatment of anyone. We have ignored slavery in Africa for centuries, is that not similar to just killing your own people. In my mind it is more humane to kill innocent people rather than force them into slavery. At least it would be for me.

All of our elected officials in America today fear is not being re-elected. They have lost sight of their responsibility to serve the public and have no compassion for anyone but themselves. Every decision is politically connected to retaining the regal status they have bestowed on themselves to be a higher class citizen than you or I. If not why can’t they accept their biggest screw-up in history and exempting themselves from Obamacare?

Our colleges and universities still provide some important Intelligence. Unfortunately the education and the Socialist and Marxist indoctrination the kids receive from the Liberal-Progressive professors and the free enterprise system that made America the greatest nation in history will not compute. We no longer teach people the values of freedom and self-actualization I was educated about.

Maybe I am stupid as I can’t understand how 53 million Americans, dead and alive, re-elected our President who lacks the Courage to perform his duty if he is so self-righteous and concerned about the Syrian situation. I bet the slaves in Africa would love to see cruise missiles eliminate their owners, or put them out of their misery. But who cares?

I would love to see Sheriff Joe elected President and enforce our own laws, then tackle the Syrian situation.

How do you feel?
