A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!

Archive for the tag “taxes”



We’ve all had bosses or friends or family members that are assholes. And guess what, mostly, they managed to do whatever job they’re doing. It’s of no consequence. There are plenty of assholes in the world. I’m one of them, I should know. You might be one too. I’m not going to have a beer with Trump. He’s not coming over for Thanksgiving dinner. I don’t care. People have written literally dozens of books on the Clinton’s. Guess what? They’re assholes too.  And what about these “namby-pamby” hypocrites who say they never uttered a sexually ripe story or described a sexual fantasy? Girls and women have sexual fantasies too, they tell dirty jokes in locker rooms and changing rooms; anyone who says they haven’t is a dweeb or a liar; or to be more charitable, they never held a job, were never hit upon or bullied or they have very selective memories!!  Some of the accounts I’ve heard from nurses, waitresses or teachers could make a long-shore man blush. So what?

Donald Trump is an asshole. He has hurt some people’s feelings. In contrast, the Clinton’s have blood on their hands and have left a trail of dead bodies in their wake a mile long. And look what happens when you choose a president that is hip and cool. You get eight years of Barack Obama hanging out with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

What if Donald Trump didn’t pay taxes for a few years? So what. Apple doesn’t pay taxes and you keep buying their shit. Lots of rich people don’t pay taxes. There’s a whole cottage industry called “wealth management” that finds creative ways to hedge the rich from taxes. I file for deductions every year– as many as my poor ass can manage. I hope you do the same. Is it fair? Probably not. But you know why those loopholes are in place? Because of career politicians like Hillary Clinton who take bribes or campaign contributions and are; therefore, beholden to some wall street banker or millionaire/billionaire like George Soros. She’s been at this game for decades. What good has she done for this country? Our tax code is a joke and it’s because of crooked career politicians like the Clinton’s. The Clinton Foundation doesn’t pay taxes. It’s nothing more than a giant money laundering scheme for their cronies and allows them to travel the world, eat and drink like kings, for free!

Barack Obama has “weaponized” the IRS, the IN-Justice Department, Homeland Security and other areas of the government to attack our Constitutional rights. Operation Choke point targeted firearms-related businesses. That’s why a company where I buy weapons and ammo, had it’s bank dump them after twenty years as a client. Imagine the outrage if banks discriminated against the LGBT community, blacks, or Muslims. You wouldn’t hear the end of it. But because liberals hate the 2nd Amendment, won’t recognize the core problems of mental illness and a lack of mandatory medical reporting of those free roaming “nut” cases, it’s okay. No media coverage. No outrage.

Are you better off after eight years of Obama? Do you want eight more years of this bullshit under Hillary Clinton? It is impossible for Donald Trump to do a worse job than Obama or Hillary. Impossible. On the other hand, he may raise this country’s standing in the world by standing up to “tin pot” regimes like Syria, Iran, Iraq and North Korea. How many more challenges to our flag and our military, will it take before our president stops cowering under his desk, when our aircraft and ships at sea, are harassed and fired upon by these international assholes? Our country cannot take much more. The Obama regime has weakened this country and sapped our leadership to the point where we have become a large banana republic!

Obama preaches about low unemployment and the recovery of the economy. That’s laughable. It was different a few years ago. Things are worse now. Your deflated dollar doesn’t buy much and the entire financial system is one wall street panic from the brink of collapse. Federal oversight of companies like Wells-Fargo is laughable. There is a tremendous level of uncertainty in the market. The failed financial and economic policies of this administration have cost many folks their livelihoods, their homes and cars, their marriages. Can you afford four or eight more years of this and decades more with an ultra-liberal Supreme Court? 

My grand kids are going to grow up in an America that would be unrecognizable to baby boomers like me. The good old days are long gone. “Hope and Change” failed miserably. We need a major course correction and Trump is the asshole to do it. That’s my rant for today. Hey, I’m going to go and kick something in anger. Have a good weekend and God bless America, you and yours. 

I have no idea who wrote this and I wish I had. My friend Ron Jenkins sent this to me and I hope every American alive gets a chance to read it. Politics is now a gutter sport with every facet of our media and government, including Congress should be ashamed of the Washington pig sty.  C Brewer


Folks, its time to change. America needs a leader.

For the first time in my life I abhor watching, listening or reading the news and current events presented by the national media. America has become obsessed with lying, cheating, subversive events and everything negative that could possibly happen. We have a President who must have mastered in chicanery as he can distort anything, misrepresent solid facts, coddle the unsavory, support the convicted and help our enemies. The most unusual thing is that the politicians, national media, and women in general appear to love him. I omitted the minorities, our welfare army, dead people and illegal aliens as they fully support him 120%. Other than the State of Illinois every year and Lyndon Johnson in Texas, no American politician has ever had the support of more than 100% of eligible voters that only rise or show up just on election days.

This morning I actually did watch the national news and sure enough, except for Obama’s oratory genius of reading a teleprompter to praise Cuba and Iran, every other interview was aimed at dissing Donald Trump. The only other candidate I will listen to or even read about anymore is Ted Cruz, he is the only person in politics who refuses to be negative towards Mr. Trump. The media and all of the rest of the horde running for President spend 95% of every interview arguing about what Trump can’t do.

The funny thing is that the President, 535 members of Congress, the Supreme Court, working women and upteen thousands of government employees are not billionaires. Not one single one of them and probably 99.99% of all world-wide humans would offer to manage America free. He did not inherit his wealth, he earned it just like most Americans who do work or that are still working.

I was raised in the 1930’s when there was no work. Americans then did not want handouts and there were none either. They wanted to work. I was raised wanting to work and got my Social Security card when I was eight years old. I wanted to earn my pleasures because I was raised that way. My how things have changed as now if you do work most kids today have more thresholds of wants. A car at 16 is now an expected perk if you live in a family that works. I used the word family as it now requires in most families that both parents work to allow the children to play until they get through college. My four youngest children all worked and I feel sure that today they respect me because they had a stay-at-home mother that raised them correctly.

Why am I supporting Donald Trump is a question even some of my own family doesn’t understand or agree with. Yes, Trump is a braggart, he challenges criticism with gusto but he is only doing so reactively. He is not running against anyone so long as they do not question his ability. Instead of orating only the things that others say what can’t be done, Trump offers to at least to ”try“ to improve all Americans lives. Maybe it will take a little longer to close the borders and throw out the illegals than he promises but at least he has the gonads to do something.

If I was running for President I would make sure that every illegal alien living in America be sent to California, New York, Washington State and DC or Florida. They would not be allowed to enter another State for any reason. I sincerely believe that this might wake up even the legal aliens to demand protection of their rights.

Trump is focused on putting all Americans who are able to work for a living actually working for a living just like what was expected when I was growing up. Work never hurt me and I am not ashamed that I never asked or needed the government to take care of me or my family. The two basic things he has promised that got my early support are to close the borders to illegal invaders and create jobs for Americans again.

Actually he has some other promises that should entice other working and freedom loving Americans to support him. Creating good jobs and closing tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans and arbiters should be supported by every working American alive including union members and Democrats that actually work for a living. Taxing Corporations for moving jobs to Mexico and elsewhere is something every working American should support.

It appears to me that unless you are a politician, an illegal alien, a government employee, afraid or have no desire to work for a living (this would also include both politicians and government employees), stupid, on the Supreme Court, or a Washington bureaucrat it would help everyone else have a better life to give “The Donald” a chance to perform.

As the rest of those running are only promising more of the same or telling us what Trump can’t do, what do the rest us have to lose in giving him a chance? I will publish every answer I receive that rebuts my statements with facts. Just think we would have a President that works free. Now that is a true American spirit. What do we have to lose? Tell me how Trump could possibly make things worse for the working American than it is today?

My reason for publishing this series is to document the factual positions that Trump has actually promised he would use to improve every one’s life in America, white, black, and yellow. He has never shown any bias except when dealing with inept individuals. There is no place on earth populated with more inept people than Washington D.C. I will repeat my reason for trying to get voters to make sure we elect a leader with a proven success record. Liking Trump is not a factor and the other individuals who are capable leaders I could support like Cruz, Fiorina, Carson or Kasich have zero chance of being nominated as they don’t have enough financial support. The rest of the candidates are pure politicians that will promise everything and deliver nothing.

If you will get beyond not liking Trump’s boisterous demeanor and focus on his agenda you will see that his overall objectives are aimed at common sense objectives that will help everyone. I don’t agree on some of his objectives or his flamboyant persona but if he can just get jobs created alone he can stop the bleeding. How many of the people running for President, both Democrats and Republicans, have created as many jobs for Americans as Trump has?  

How many politicians have we watched that have promised to fix the federal tax system? How many actually changed the system? None. Trump has promised to not only make it better for all individual Americans, but also to find ways to encourage businesses to remain in the US. He has promised to develop incentives to attract foreign businesses to move to America. His objective is to make America the most attractive place in the world to do business. Sure that is a real challenge but it is possible with a proven leader motivating Congress to perform sensibly again.

He has promised to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. I have read that this would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs. His plan is to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax. He also wants to create incentives to companies that agree to move jobs back to the USA.

Trumps tax plan would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. The facts that I read reveal that his recommended personal income tax plan will be:

  1. Income up to $30,000 will be taxed at 1%.
  2. Income from $30,000 to $100,000 will be taxed at 5%.
  3. Income from $100,000 to $1,000,000 will be taxed at 10%.
  4. Income from $1,000,000 and above will be taxed at 15%.

Trump has gone on record that Obamacare is a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity”. He is convinced it “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He feels certain that allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace will drive prices down. Trump supports tort reform to eliminate the costs of defensive medicine and the outlandish cost of malpractice insurance. Trump is on record that Obamacare must be repealed. Based on his comments about the Canadian healthcare program I believe that Trump will support a single payer healthcare system.

Unlike most conservative writers, a plan that demands that all able bodied Americans pay into the plan is the only common sense solution to all of the problems. This would help everyone and the doctors who are having to find other occupations because of the insurance penalty. If lawyers were required to pay malpractice insurance, it might even the playing field.

Trump wants Congress to enact severe spending reforms. He pin points that it is only common sense to understand that spending more than you receives in revenue is absolute failure. He has gone on record that if America can’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion, no one will be able to save this country.

He has made it clear that we must cut spending. He has promised that he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. His plan is to revive and increase the economy by increasing the taxable revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.

Trump has documented his objection to the only solution the Democrat’s ever have, which is raising taxes. History has proven that every time they raise taxes they destroy the economy. Trump is right in his belief and history proves that when you lower taxes you create an environment to help businesses grow, hire more workers and those new workers will be paying taxes that increase revenue. This is nothing more than “Business Common Sense 101”. C Brewer


The recent decision by our President to ignore the laws of the land regarding illegal immigration has upset me deeply. He has thumbed his nose at so many laws he feels are unnecessary, I am trying to compile a list of questions on why citizens are expected to follow any laws that do not threaten others. Like permits, licenses, government services that are collected to support welfare and fees like stamps, gas taxes, etc.

I am asking you to send me any questions you may have that seem unfair to those who actually work and pay taxes to support illegals and the masses on welfare who have advantages others do not enjoy.

Even in Socialists countries, many I have visited or worked in, make every able bodied citizen pay for government services if they receive them.

If you are also upset then help me by sending me specific regulations, laws, taxes, fees, etc that you question. I will compile the significant items into an article and give credit for your inputs. This should make for interesting discussion and possibly encourage Congress to re-adjust its priorities. The media really does not care if bias is unfair.

You can comment easily on this article, or use Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or send me an E mail. This unfairness is so complex I do not desire to try this alone.

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 lubricant of conversation, the philosophic juice, the elixir of life, the liquid 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.

This is a great example of every politician’s response to any subject, if you give them enough time to expound on their positions. Thanks to Dr. Peter Forrest who sent this to me. Hope you enjoy some facts. CB



If you are an elected or appointed to a government position or have enough money to buy a politician you are not required to follow all federal laws. You can evade income taxes, commit fraud, steal, waste money, intimidate voters, lie, and ignore ethics rules. Our leadership decides which laws to follow and which to ignore.

We have federal laws that states change and the “Selective Justice Department” currently managed by Eric Holder have decided to ignore. We have state laws requiring that voters must have an identification card that are Constitutional and Holder is suing the states because he disagrees with what the Constitution allows.

I spent some time this past weekend looking at some of the differences in laws that surprised me. The recent state laws allowing the sale of recreational marijuana in Washington and Colorado motivated me to write this article. Holder has already announced that the “Selective Justice Department” will not enforce federal law in these two states.

It appears that all legal decisions made by our government today are political rather than Constitutional. The President, his administration, the Supreme Court, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Congress read the Constitution the way they want to. Watching the Supreme Court vote is proof all decisions are political. Seldom do they vote on any decision that does not result in a 5-4 decision. Let me share some facts to support my thesis.

Obama has been honest in admitting he smoked Pot and just this weekend admitted he has decided that drinking alcohol is worse. I wonder why he still drinks alcohol. He did not say if he still smokes Pot but he did say he told his daughters it was bad. He apparently has no regrets he broke the law as a young man and he obviously has no problem with others breaking the law smoking Pot. “Selective Justice”.

We did not have marijuana when I was a boy or a young man. I learned to smoke using dried grapevines hiding in a tree or behind the garage. It did not last long as a blister on your tongue will tell any sane person to stop. I did smoke cigarettes until my 14 year old son shamed me into quitting. By the way smoking grapevines or cigarettes was not against the law then or now if you are old enough. Let me share some other confusing laws.

We have a national law and all states require that you must be 18 before you can buy tobacco products. The new state laws require you to be 21 to purchase or have Pot in your possession.

National law requires that you must be 14 to work. One state, New Jersey allows 13 year olds to work but who cares. I suppose my dad broke the law when he made me throw a paper route at 12. He was the dealer for the Dallas Times Herald and the Ft. Worth Star Telegram in Corsicana Texas in 1942.

Federal law requires you to be 18 to buy long guns (rifles & shotguns) and you must be 21 to purchase a hand gun. Some states have different age requirements and when Holder looks closer he will go wild. If he and Obama had their desire, no one would be allowed to buy any weapon and all guns would be confiscated. There is a precedent as Hitler did this in Germany in 1938.

Drinking alcohol has some wider ranges. Federal law requires you to be 21 to buy or consume booze. At least 8 states allow you to buy or guzzle at 18. Who cares?

Driving a car is also different. Federal law allows you to drive at 15 with a permit and a licensed driver in the front seat. You can be licensed at 16. Thank god we don’t have a federal driver’s license but when they discover it can be taxed this could change. It will not and you will see why when I discuss voting. Some states allow provisions for driving at 14 and New Jersey will not issue a license until you are 17.

Voting is one law that now requires you to be 18 nationally and by every state. Few people reach adulthood at 18 but who cares. At 18 you can drive a car, work, smoke and in some states drink alcohol. You still can’t possess a hand gun or get a permit to carry one. I have mixed emotions about the voting age of 18.

Most 18 year olds today are more interested in moving out of their parent’s home than voting. As most of them come from families on some form of welfare or unemployment they are already Democrats. The others who will likely go to college and be brainwashed by Progressive-Liberal professors who can’t get elected to Congress, too lazy to chase ambulances and afraid to start a business on their own. They only want tenure protection so they can consult for big bucks or get government grants to study the sex life of toad frogs. Democrats are positioned to stay in power until we go broke. Bankruptcy is inevitable because common sense is considered  against the law in Washington D.C where our leaders have amassed an endless supply of ink and paper to just print more money.

Drowning in all of these laws, differences between states and the federal government caused me to remember how things were when I grew up.

I graduated high school at 16. I got my driver’s license but I could not afford to buy a car until I was 23. I enlisted in the US Navy at 17 with parental consent. Too young to drink, smoke, buy a pistol or vote.

I had to show proficiency shooting both long guns and hand guns before I was 18. I learned how to smoke, cuss and drink alcohol on base before I was 18. I could buy alcohol and cigarettes off base if in uniform without being carded.

I was married and a father before I was 19. Even before the Korean War was over I was released to inactive duty before I was 21. Finding a job in those times was not easy and being old enough to vote when I reached 21 was not even close to being my largest concern. I was scared then and I am scared now.

Arbitrary age requirements are meaningless measures of maturity and need to be adjusted to recognize common sense, experience and education. I can tell you the day I became a man was the day I graduated from boot camp, I was 17. I am proud that I served my country then and now I’m disappointed as I have no absolutely no respect any of our leaders today. All we have today are master politicians for children to admire as role models. Most could not successfully lead and/or manage a McDonalds where you “MUST” make a profit. Evaluating the maturity of my immediate family, which now numbers 40, my 12 year old and youngest granddaughter, Emma, is far more mature to vote than some who are 40 or older.

America is not a better place today than when I was a boy. It certainly should be but it appears it never will be “United” again in my lifetime. Freedom loving Americans just lost our first war in history. The enemies and winners were Obama, Reid, Pelosi and our bloated federal government. Not a shot had to be fired but too many Americans have suffered. God help my grandchildren who will suffer more and also have to pay for this debacle.

WHY?            C Brewer 2014



It is amusing to watch the Sunday talk show host, the congressmen we elect to protect us and the paid mercenaries argue about who Enemy #1 in America.

Who do you blame for us living with the most corrupt tax system ever devised by humans? There is absolutely no doubt in this old man’s analysis that the Internal Revenue Service has become a self-anointed destroyer of our wealth and political freedoms. They even decide which religions are allowed to enjoy tax freedoms.

The waste of money by the IRS recently in the news and on my blog are absolute facts folks. The facts prove we have people who lied and broke the law. All we get is sick, watching the politicians on both sides of Congress attempt to impress us with their emotions and reasons to re-elect them.

We the people did not hire these IRS buffoons, they are appointed, hired and controlled by politicians. We did not empower these radicals to be able to oppress innocent American taxpayers, Congress did. We did not appoint or confirm Eric Holder to ignore the laws as Attorney General, Congress did. We did not make the rules that allow government employees to break our laws and harass the people, Congress did.

Now we have the facts, we know who broke our laws, we know who ignored our freedoms, we know who wastes our tax payer dollars, what will happen now? We all know that nothing will happen as soon as we forget and we will continue to re-elect incumbent politicians to protect us from our enemies. We need protection from Congress.

We should be far more worried about Congress and the Executive and Judicial branches of government who completely  disregard of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

When will the people demand that the IRS be totally eliminated with tax reforms that can only be created by Congress?

As long as we allow a big and bloated government to abuse us, the politicians are going to continue to support the oppressive bureaucracy that now extracts or extort trillions of dollars of our money each year.

I’ve had enough and until we demand that Congress protect us from our own government as well as terrorists, I am not a happy camper. Are you?

After playing a round of golf with Tiger Woods Obama decided to contact a call girl.

He contacted the first one, a high end blond suggested by Tiger and told her, “I am the President of the United States, how much would it cost me to spend some time with you?’

She replied, “$5,000.”

Next he contacted Tigers second suggestion, a brunette and asked asked the same question.

Her reply was “$4,000.”

The third time he called a redhead, recommended by a Secret Service agent and asked the same cost question.

The redhead responded with, “Mr. President, if you can get my skirt up as high as my taxes, my panties as low as my wages, get that thing of yours as hard as the times people are struggling with, keep it rising like the price of gas, keep me warmer than it is in my apartment and screw me the way you have retirees, then you can have it for free, like the immigrants.”


Four years ago a majority of Americans elected a President who had never had to find a job. In fact he never really had a job producing anything but conflict. If it were not for his color and unearned free education, he would likely be fighting an inherited desire to wage war against everything America stands for like his own family waged.

History will someday report that Obama was the most damaging individual to our freedoms that ever lived. He has mesmerized the majority of the people with his lying and along with the power of the Presidency, he has total control of the national newspapers, radio and television media. The media refuses to report his inherited hatred of our Free Enterprise system.

He promised to improve the economy by increasing jobs. He has utilized that media power and slight-of-hand manipulation of statistics to make the people believe he has created millions of jobs. If he had created these jobs we would not need tax increases to support his rape of our Constitutional rights. The increased tax base alone would have supported his Socialists agenda. Creating more government jobs that he has accomplished will not provide enough revenue to just pay the additional bureaucrats he has hired.

Increasing government size and power along with wasteful expansion of welfare programs will be his eventual legacy.

I will be the first to admit that he is a master of deceit and with the media power and the socialistic control of formal education, he has transformed America. Getting re-elected he has proved that America may never be the freedom symbol for the world it was for most of my life.

The youth, African Americans, Socialists, illegal aliens and women who elected him should be happy that they won the second Civil War without killing each other. Democrats have soundly trounced the opposition who has committed political suicide ever since “Roe vs. Wade a long time ago.

Democrats, with Obamas charm, have successfully divided the people and gained enough power to control America for many more years. Should Americans ever decide to restore these lost freedoms, it will involve bloodshed of each other again. The Democrats know they will never be able to disarm the people, Obama has caused the arming of Americans to the highest level in our history. We all have friends and neighbors who now possess enough guns and ammunition to supply a small army. They are not afraid of criminals, they are afraid of the United States government.

It is not amusing that when someone mentions jobs, Obama and his team create another smoke screen to change the subject. They used healthcare to hide the problem for four years and now they are focused on immigration and gun control. When world events like Benghazi erupt, they just change the subject and hide behind whatever crisis that can be found. The media even promotes a crisis to provide him cover to hide behind.

One thing the Republicans should try that would equalize the battle and would not cost us a dime. Convince the Nobel Committee to create a new award to meet the changing times we have today, “World’s Best Politician” each year. This would divide the Democrats immediately and create an internal war against each other. Obama would be challenged with the ego trips of Reid, Polosi, Durbin, Bloomberg and Schumer. Then they would all be out run by Mr. Ego, Al Gore. This would drive Hollywood wild with their rush of egos to become eligible by running for office and trample each other to win any award.

Now that I think of the advantages, we could make “Lying” the number one priority to win, rename this to “World’s Greatest Bulls**t Artist” and let the Republicans join the competition. It is certain Obama would win the next three competitions but he would have to be anointed King to win more than three.

My good friend Glen has been pushing for term limits for all politicians, which is the easiest solution to solving Washington D.C. madness. Sadly this is just a long term dream as are my suggested thoughts above. I just feel my idea would be more amusing to watch, how do you feel?

The Doorbell

“PowerLineBlog” recently held a competition for $100,000 for whomever could most effectively and creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis. Several entries have gotten a lot of attention, but the one that has gone most viral so far is ‘The Doorbell.’ If you haven’t yet seen it, you may watch it here. It’s 59 seconds long:
