Must See ‘Shot/Chaser’ Vid On Tax Cuts!!!!!

There’s not much commentary for this. It simply demonstrates the staggering ignorance of things economic by the left.  To be sure, not all coorporate tax cuts would result in increases of wages for the workers.  Indeed, perhaps, not even most tax cuts.  Also, these companies aren’t doing this because they love their workers this much.  It’s an investment in which these companies expect a return. 

So, why are they doing this?  This isn’t hard ……..  Trump is slowing the flow of importing cheap labor into the US.  The US still has the largest workforce in the free world, and is the world’s largest consumer nation.  Couple that with the reduction of the coorporate tax rate, which brings incentive to have the companies in the US ….. well, they want to keep their workers!  Add to that the growth rate of the GDP (soon to be officially the highest since 2005!) and it’s easy to see why these huge coorporations are giving bonuses and increasing wages.

Additional thoughts ……..

This calls into serious question the need for a federal minimum wage law.  When the minimum wage for these coorporations go up like this, it gives an increased pressure for the rest of the employers to increase their wages, else, all the good talent will go to the higher paying jobs.  Even an increase in their minimum wages produces pressure on the wages paid to people with higher wages.

Also, while we’re not there, yet, we need to keep an eye on inflation.  Unless productivity increases among the workers, coupled with lower taxes for the workers, and the increase in our GDP, we’re going to see inflation.  How bad?  IDK.  But, I do believe if we continue to lower the flow of importing labor, the increases in the wealth of the average American will easily out-balance the inflationary propensity of these recent events.  This is what winning looks like!

Uhhmmm…… Because They Really Are Sh-t Holes??

image

Currently, I’ve had too many to say too much on this most recent roil.  But, I’ll say a bit more in the near future.

The fact of the matter is, the nations he was referencing are, in fact, sh-t holes!  This isn’t debatable.

What is debatable, to an extent, is what causes these sh-t holes to be sh-t holes.  And, more importantly, why we import people from said sh-t holes. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really a fan of Norway …. but, neither am I a hater, but, sure ……  import people from a civilized society.

I get the fact that there are many in these sh-t holes who wish to escape the sh-t holes.  But, bringing those people to the US doesn’t fix the sh-t holes.  It simply strenthens the sh-t holes, because the people in the sh-t holes, who understand how sh-tty the sh-t holes are, want to go somewhere else. 

That said, something I’ve always said and will continue to state …….. PREDATORS ALWAYS FOLLOW THEIR PREY!!!!

If you don’t limit/regulate/governor the imigration from the sh-t holes, then, you absolutely will invite the despots who caused the people to flee in the first place.  They, the people who caused the “sh-t hole” will be amoungst us.  Given our current reluctance towards forcing assimulation,  …… well, that’s for the next post.

Trump To Step Up Rural Internet!!!!!?????

image

I had thought to write about something else, but, this is more near and dear to my heart.

As some of you may know, President Trump announced he had signed an executive order expanding broadband to rural America on Monday.  Imagine my surprise to discover rural America didn’t have broadband!!!!!!   Surprised smile

As it turns out, the speeds necessary for “adequate service” is now 25mb or better.  I didn’t know ……  My daughter and her husband live in a town even smaller than the town I live in ….. they’re kicking it with about 100mb speeds.  I’m not, though.  I’m only getting 8, but, that’s only because I haven’t upgraded, yet.  My ISP offers a much quicker package, I just haven’t had the time, nor, have seen the necessity to do it, yet.  It’s on my agenda, though.

I guess, this is why I’m writing about this.  You see, my ISP, well, other than the owner, a friend of mine, I’m probably most responible for the viability and expansion of the small company.  And, ……. well, wait, here’s a quote from our POTUS in the announcement …..

“Those towers are going to go up, and you are going to have great, great, broadband,” Trump said on Monday during a speech for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Yeh….. sigh, that’s near and dear, too.

About 17 years ago, give or take a year, my wife had had enough of the crappy dial-up service our local phone company was providing to the rural residents.  And, I was, too!!!!!!  They were killing my Napster downloads!!!!!!  So, we called the new upstart wireless service in the area.  Nope, they couldn’t get to us from where they were.  ‘Well, just put up an entenea up on the local grain bin!!!!!’  Well, only if they had enough requests …… that’s all my wife needed to hear.  Two months later, we were rocking with speeds up to 1mb/s!!!!!!  (Usually closer to 500kb/s)  But, that was infinately better than the 25kb we did have!

Well, I changed jobs a couple of times and the house we were living in burnt down.  I found myself being the only IT guy at a rural electric COOP.  And, yes, I was still close enough to my ISP to keep the same ISP.  So, fast forward about 8 years or so …..

It was right after Obama was elected and he was enacting his stimulus package …….  Disappointed smile  …..  the guy in charge of the COOP decided he wanted a new revenue stream and the feds were pushing hard with their great new idea to “get broadband to rural America”.  That great idea surrounded itself with the idiocy of sending satelittes up into space and rural America would then have high-speed internet!!!!!!!  Yea!!!!  I strongly advised against it.  It didn’t make any sense to me …… the bounce with satellites is too great to be suffienct for what was desired.

My worst fears were realized …….. we had hired a couple of guys to install the equipment at the homes of our customers and support the package.  “Wild Blue” was the name of the company which was the beneficiary of our fed’s largess.  The guys were paid well for the installations …… not so much for the support side of it, and the support side was a bit more complex than the installation.  Guess what happened when we reached market saturation?  The guys we hired left!!!!  Guess who was then charged with supporting satellite internet?  The biggest problem was that the company would sell speeds which, if were ever attained (they rarely were) the customers couldn’t enjoy it because of the limits on the data!  A big Windows update sent all the customers over their data limits!

I once had to go to a high-rise appartment complex in a nearby small city.  The customer lost his internet connection and couldn’t get it back.  Our equipment was on the roof …… the only access was through a neighbors apartment above his …… where I had to get on their balconey with a step ladder and hoist myself on the roof of this 5 story appartement building.  The problem was that part of the cabling went to crap ……… it was on the side of the building, just below the roof.  The guy was a nice guy and really needed the internet for his job at the oil refinery.  Sigh ………  okay, so, I’ll just stretch a bit and grab the cable …. there’s a connection just a bit out of reach ….. if I can get to it and pull it up a bit, then, I can get rid of the bad cabling and put some good cabling in place!  It started to snow…….  Now, I hate being cold.  I really hate being cold.  So, it’s time to get this crap done and get off of this roof!

I think, when I was hanging off the building while praying the coax cabling would hold me, after I slipped, and wondering if I could actually pull myself back onto the roof, that I decided I would go a little rogue and end my and the COOP’s association with Wild Blue.

Enter my ISP ……. I think I nearly doubled his customer base and his territory.  You see, some of my duties entailed moving data from electric meters from the substations to the office.  We did private radio frequency …..  but, if I could just piggy-back from an internet connection, that would be much better!

So, everytime we had connection problems at one substation or another, I’d tell the boss that we know a guy who could give us a stable connection!  So, we’d help the ISP owner set up enteneas all over the countryside, thus, giving him greater coverage!  Meanwhile, when the angry Wildblue customers would call, I’d come out to their house, give them my very best personal service, and tell them, I know a guy and he doesn’t have data limits (still doesn’t) and it’s faster!

I don’t know how many hundreds (thousands?) eventually went to my friend because of my efforts, but, in the end, the COOP gave away the reminents who wouldn’t change.

While all of that was happening, some jackwagon congressman from Nebraska called me (I can’t remember his name, he’s not there anymore) ….. it seems president Zero had alloted more money towards getting more “broadband” to the rural people of the country and we were going to launch a couple of more satellites and wanted me to embrace/support/sell such idiocy. ……..  I told him it was a horrific waste of our money and that they shouldn’t spend money on outdated tech.  I told him that if he really wanted to deliver high-speed internet to the rural parts of this nation that they should erect cellphone towers and let the cell companies bid on them.  I told him that picking only a couple of companies to launch a satelitte for was pretty f’d up and that the American government shouldn’t be operating in such a manner, and, no true Repub would ever embrace such a notion.  The COOP boss was from Nebraska ……. It wasn’t long that I wasn’t long with the company.

Well, I guess a few years and a few $billion later, the towers are going to go up, afterall. 

I think, this is part of the reason why I find it so hard to write anymore.  I’ve already said this stuff!  And, now, I’m living through and saying stuff, not by writing, but, begging, preaching to management of a company I’m working for ….. You trip over stupid everyday, all day, the same stupid over and over again, and we won’t fix it.  Eventually, someone will.  But, we will have all lost our jobs by then.  The knowledge and demonstration that you were right all along and could have saved/created countless jobs and unmeasurable wealth, years later, is small comfort.

A Reposting Of THE CHRISTMAS STORY!!!!

image

This is a repeat post I did a few years back.  I think they’re decent enough to repost.  I just wanted to emphasized that our celebrating Christ’s birth is only part of the story.  There’s so much more to it.  Below is just some parts.  ………

Tomorrow, many of us will celebrate the birth of Christ!  This is the first part of the fulfillment of God’s word.  There are, of course, many more examples to give which show the Fulfillment.  I thought I’d share just a few.  For those who may not be familiar, the Second fulfillment is the events celebrated for Easter.  The Third fulfillment will be His return!  Like the poor drummer boy of song(Bob Seger has a moving rendition), I’ve nothing to offer as a gift but my inadequate expressions.  So, I thought it would be better that I share God’s words instead.

God’s greatest Blessing has already been freely given!  All that is necessary to benefit from the Blessing is to receive Him!

Isaiah 7:14 (NIV) Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

Matthew 1:21-25 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” –which means, “God with us.” 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Psalms 72:10-11 (NIV) The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts. 11 All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him.

Matthew 2:10-11 (NIV) When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.

Micah 5:1-2 (NIV) Marshal your troops, O city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel’s ruler on the cheek with a rod. 2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

Matthew 2:1 (NIV) After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

Psalms 2:7 (NIV) I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son ; today I have become your Father.

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

Jeremiah 31:15 (NIV) This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more.”

Matthew 2:16-18 (NIV) When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. 17 Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: 18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”

Hosea 11:1: When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.
Matthew 2:14-15 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘Out of Egypt I called my son.’

I pray all a safe and happy Christmas season.  God bless all and merry Christmas.

The Difference Between Moore And Franken Demonstrated!!!!

image

Moral relativism and “whataboutism” is too prevelent today.  Of course, it’s intentional.  It usually has to do with a letter behind the name of the person. 

Today, it’s the favorite game from the people on the left to bring up Roy Moore, the Repub candidate for senator from Alabama.  It’s pretty funny considering the fellows out in Seattle, Cali, Conyers, and Franken (all from the left and plenty more).  Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty on the Repub side to be condemned, even a former Speaker of the House.  And, that’s the difference between the two people I’ve highlighted in this more recent hubbub.  There is a difference between the actions of Franken and the alleged actions of Moore, and no, it doesn’t have to do with age. 

For the people on the left, can you guess what it is?  ……………. No? …………… Give up?  …………

It’s PROOF YOU IMBECILES!!!!!!!!  Proof, evidence, something that coroborates the accusations!  Something that would cause a skeptic to believe this is something other than a political witchhunt.  Indeed, one hardcore leftist even stated that she’s not concerned about innocent men when it comes to sexual assault accusations.  Given the left’s embracing of the “rules for radicals” and their ‘end justifies the means’ MO, I’m skeptical every time an accusation such as what is being levied at Moore is brought up.  Remember, boys and girls, most often when the left accuses the right of something, it is called “projection”.

There was a time in the history of the US, we, as a people, presumed the innocence of a man (or a woman) until such a time they were demonstrated as being guilty.  Indeed, this is codeified in our judicial system.  This is the difference between the Franken saga and the Moore accusations.  With Franken, there are pictures, apologies, and more.  With Moore, there are simply accusations, oddly, supposedly buttressed by accusations of legal behavior.  He must have sexually assaulted a 14 y/o, because he once dated an 18 y/o, or some such idiocy. 

And, for those who may scream ……..  I’m not defending Roy Moore, I’m asking for actual evidence.  Don’t have any?  Then, the accusations are not to be believed.  That’s how it is suppose to work in America.

Six Years Ago, Today ……

https://suyts.wordpress.com/2011/11/12/a-look-back/

Remember when?  I do.  Now, of course, the data has entirely changed.  Still, it is what is was, or, some such.  They lie, they continually lie, even after they’ve been caught at continually lying.  And, still, a huge amount of people believe the lies.  This is because people wish to believe lies, rather than, confronting the truth.

It is absurd.

As I look back, our delving into the world of “climate change”, was simply to look into the idiocy of today.  We will believe and hate something that purportedly happened 40 years ago, but, we won’t call out the worse things which are happening now ….. the stuff that we know now …… vs the stuff we imagine happened then.

Click on the link.  Know that I graphed the data as it was.  Try to do the same today.  I didn’t lie.  I didn’t alter any data.  Draw your own conclusions.

Breaking!!!!! Suyts Agrees With Andrea Mitchell!!!!! And, Leftards Need To Stop!!!!!

This is out of hand.  This is beyond the pale.  You idiots have to stop trying to claim victimization every second of the day!!!!!!

image

So, ICYMI ….. from Twitchy …..

In a now-deleted Instagram post, actress Heather Lind accused former President George H.W. Bush of sexually assaulting her from his wheelchair at an event for the show, “Turn.”

.@heatherglind you are strong and fearless. Love you, my friend. https://t.co/T5nlnh6pbD

— Kelly AuCoin (@KellyAuCoin77) October 24, 2017

According to Fox News, Bush touched her twice and told her a dirty joke:

Lind wrote on Instagram Tuesday that Bush “sexually assaulted” her. She said he touched her “from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” told her a “dirty joke,” and then touched her again.

Lind claimed that Barbara Bush “rolled her eyes” at Bush, “as if to say ‘not again.’”

According to the post, which has since been deleted, a nearby security guard told Lind that she “shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.”

I don’t know this idiot Heather Lind ……….  and, I really don’t care to.  Not only did the people caring for 41 feel compelled to issue an apology to Mzzzz Lind, they also felt compelled to issue this statement …….

image

Andrea Mitchell, rightly, had this to say …….

Andrea Mitchell

@mitchellreports

Mrs Bush was at his side. He is in a wheelchair with Parkinson’s syndrome. Really? Someone should be ashamed and it isn’t ’41. https://twitter.com/jonathanvswan/status/923334651321683968 …

Good for you, Andrea!!!!  I almost never agree with her, but, she’s spot on in this case.

Look, I don’t care that George was one of our presidents, I don’t care what party he belongs to ……  he’s an ailing 93 y/o with debilitating diseases.  Do you see the expression on his face in the pic?  He’s gone.  Whatever you thought of the man as he lived, he’s not there anymore.  Leave our old people alone!!!!!  You witch!!!!!

If you click on the link “had this to say” and scroll down, you can see examples of  the angry leftarded Twitter mob attacking Mitchell for “victim shaming”. 

Also, learn what real “sexual assault” is.  It doesn’t do any good for anyone to dilute the voices of people who have suffered real and true sexual assault with this bit of stupidity.  But, enough of this crap already!!!!  “Me too#” my arse!

Leftards Make Mockery Of Themselves!!!!! To Scream At The Sky Nov 8 …… Election Aniversary!!!!!!

You just can’t make this stuff up!!!!!  

Liberals Plan to ‘Scream Helplessly at the Sky’ on Election Anniversary

The rage is still strong in some Trump opponents, who plan to band together to “scream helplessly at the sky” on the one-year anniversary of the 2016 election.

Facebook events around the country invite people to gather together and let out a “primal scream over the current state of our democracy” on Nov. 8.

The idea came from Boston, where people will gather in America’s oldest park, the Boston Common, to scream. Other liberal cities like New York, Austin and Philadelphia picked up the idea.

“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day?” Boston organizer Johanna Schulman said. “Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”

More than 33,000 so far have said they are interested in the Boston event, with more than 4,000 planning to go.

Meanwhile in New York City, more than 15,000 said they are interested to scream in Washington Square Park, and more than 2,000 plan to go.

New York organizer Nathan Wahl said he thinks “we’re a bunch of exasperated people who want to feel connected.”

Philadelphia organizer Philadelphia United for Progress assured that they “know we’re not helpless.”

Fans in Philadelphia are encouraged to scream in solidarity from their own backyard if they cannot attend.

If it is warm enough, I plan to be outside Nov 8, just to hear something.  Open-mouthed smile 

I wasn’t going to post about this, because, I didn’t want to discourage this behavior.  However, I’m sure they’ll contort such redicule as to us seeing this as a threat of some sort.

Unfortunately, the “primal scream at the sky” isn’t original.  Here’s the original!!!!!  Well, sort of original ….. the first one, which was better without captions, was much funnier!

Cartoon Of The Day!!!!

image

h/t Townhall

I like the message of the cartoonist, though, I’m sure many may attempt to argue the math.

I’m a little conflicted on the proposed tax cuts, myself, but, at the end of the day, it is always better to let people keep what they’ve earned.

As the cartoonist implies, congress spends our money in most wasteful ways.  I would like to pretend that if they had less revenue they’d be more frugal and spend in a wiser manner.  But, they won’t.  They’ll simply continue adding to our debt.  It’s gotten so bad that some of those idiots are pretending that there will never come a day when we have to pay it all back.  That day is coming sooner, rather than later.
