The Protesters...


All of this "Anti-Trump protesting" is an assault on our Democratic process. It's Un-American. Our nation's ability to hold open elections, with a peaceful transition of power, is the key element that separates us, from third world countries. 

Do we really want to become a nation, where the outcome of our Presidential elections are not honored by all Americans? Do we really want to become a nation, where our official election results (every 4 years) will spawn discord, violence, vandalism... and maybe even assassination? 

I’ve voted my entire life. In that span of time, only TWICE did my chosen candidate win. In short, I’ve been very disappointed following almost all elections. BUT nonetheless, when my candidate lost, I didn’t kick and scream, burn the flag, stop traffic, harass the incoming President, skip my college classes, move to Canada, or anything else. I’m an American. I did the right thing. I conceded the loss graciously, and I got behind the newly elected President. That’s what Americans do… and that’s what makes our nation great.

Instead of condoning this “protesting” behavior… parents, college professors, and celebrities, should use this situation as an opportunity to teach the next generation. Teach these kids, what it means to be an American. Teach these kids, that our election process is sacred, and the results are final. Teach these kids, how to behave, when faced with defeat and disappointment.

My "Takeaway" from this Election...

Whenever something of historical significance happens, I try to learn something from it. Here’s my “takeaway” from this election:

#1) You can’t believe what the media tells you. You MUST do your own research. In short, modern media sucks.

The media was so overwhelmingly biased in this election, I didn’t recognize my own country. 
I felt like I was living in a fascist society, because the media coverage was complete propaganda. 

Moreover, the media only reported HALF of all relevant news. They focused ad-nauseam on Anti-Trump smear snippets, while ignoring important issues.

The media had Americans completely convinced that Donald Trump had no chance at victory… and obviously, in hindsight, nothing was further from the case.

Ideally, the media is supposed to report facts only, and omit their personal opinions. That’s how newspapers and television stations operated, when I was a kid. Our media has gone right down the crapper.

#2) Celebrities can suck my left nut.

For some fucked-up reason, Hollywood personalities (actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, talk show hosts, etc) have convinced themselves, that their vote (and political opinions) are more important, than anyone else’s.

The election is OVER… and these crazy celebrities STILL believe, that if they kick and scream long enough, they can STILL change the outcome.

Here’s a newsflash for Bruce Springsteen, Robert Deniro, Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, Lady Gaga, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Amy Schumer, the entire cast of “The View”… and all the others:
MY political opinion is JUST as important as yours! MY vote is JUST as important as yours! So please, go fuck yourself.  Have a BIG piece of humble pie on me…and get lost already.

It brings me great joy to know, that the “common man” proved beyond any doubt, that their vote (and opinion) matters!

#3) The pundits, celebrities, and Democrats underestimated (and overlooked) several key groups.

For starters… senior citizens. Do they realize how many people in this country are over 65? (Roughly 45 million people, or 15% of the population)

Secondly… the folks in rural areas. Evidently, only city dwellers count. 

And last but not least… they underestimated the political clout of Catholics, Christians and Evangelicals… because hey… they’re all just antiquated jackasses right???? "Extremely backward" right???

#4) Money can’t buy everything.

BILLIONS of dollars in dirty money was thrown behind Hillary Clinton… and all for naught.

George Soros, the “Super Pacs”, and “special interests” threw insane amounts of money down the tubes.

It brings me great joy to know, that all the dirty money in the world, couldn’t buy a US election (this time around)…

Evidently, all that money, celebrity backing, and media propaganda, just wasn’t enough leverage to convince Americans that a poor candidate was a smart choice.

As my Portuguese friend often says:
"You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken shit, no matter how much mayonnaise you use".

#5) In closing, I’d just like to say, that I’m proud of the American people.

Americans invested the time and effort necessary, to research the facts for themselves.

Americans were not deterred by the constant barrage of media propaganda.

Americans weren’t brainwashed by the countless celebrities who tried to discourage independent thinking.

 Americans proved, that money can’t buy everything.

And most importantly… Americans proved that ANYTHING is possible with God.

Maybe when we become “One nation under God” again, good things will start happening for us.

As Mike Pence said it best (while defending unborn children):
"You can judge a society, by how it treats it’s most vulnerable".

Peace!

Kate Bosworth rocks biker chic look in NY... as it's revealed she will play Sharon Tate in Manson murder film directed by husband Michael Polish 




Kate Bosworth rocked a biker chic looked as she stepped out in New York on Friday.

The 33-year-old wore a stylish patch-ridden leather jacket, black skinny jeans, a plain white tee, and a pair of seriously studded boots.

The actress also wore a confident look, knowing she had netted herself a role that was bound to garner a lot of attention.

That same day, Deadline reported the Californian will portray Sharon Tate in a new biopic chronicling her life, and death at the hands of the Manson Family.

Based on the book Sharon Tate And The Manson Murders by Greg King, the film is being directed by Bosworth's husband Michael Polish.

Tate was just 26 when she was butchered in her home along with four others by Charles Manson's followers. She was two weeks away from giving birth to a son, who also died.

Before her gruesome murder she was a frequent cover girl and rising star of both small and big screens, earning a Golden Globe nomination for Valley of the Dolls.

Like Bosworth, Tate was married to a film director: Roman Polanski, who had helmed her film The Fearless Vampire Killers.

The campaigning her family did in the wake of her death to deny the murders parole lead to the introduction in Californian law to allow victim impact statements during sentencing and parole hearings.

Earlier this week Charles Manson's right-hand man, 70-year-old 'Tex' Watson, was denied parole for the 17th time, 47 years after helping to plan and carry out the slayings of Tate and six others.

Parole denied for convicted Manson follower Charles 'Tex' Watson 

 

California review board denied parole Thursday to Charles “Tex” Watson, the self-described right-hand man of Charles Manson and a key figure in the Manson family’s 1969 killing spree in the Los Angeles area.

Watson, 70, was initially sentenced to die in San Quentin’s gas chamber for his part in the murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others. In 1973, his sentence was commuted to life in prison after the state Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty was unconstitutional.

The panel’s decision, reached late Thursday, marks the 17th time that Watson has been denied parole, according to Luis PatiƱo, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He’ll be eligible for parole in five years.

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey condemned Watson after the parole board’s decision was reached.

“These were some of the most horrific crimes in California history, and we believe he continues to exhibit a lack of remorse and remains a public safety risk,” Lacey said in a statement.

Watson was convicted of joining other Manson followers in the Aug. 9, 1969, massacre of five people including Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski.

Before storming the Polanski home in Benedict Canyon, Watson climbed a pole and cut the telephone wires. He also fatally shot Steven Parent, a man who was visiting a friend at the Polanski estate. Next, Watson and other Manson followers — Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian and Patricia Krenwinkel —  carried out the barbarous slayings.

Abigail Folger was stabbed 28 times; Jay Sebring was shot once, stabbed seven times and found with a rope around his neck; and Wojciech Frykowski was stabbed 51 times and shot twice, according to court papers.

Tate, who was eight months pregnant, was stabbed 16 times and found with a rope around her head.
After the killings, Watson and the other Manson followers — who were covered in blood — drove away, stopping to use a hose to wash off.

The next night, Watson and others fatally stabbed Rosemary and Leno LaBianca at the couple’s Los Feliz residence. “War” was carved into Leno LaBianca’s chest, and a knife was left stuck in his throat. On the walls, with the LaBiancas’ blood, they wrote, “Death to pigs, rise.”

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office has long opposed releasing Watson and other members of the Manson family.

Prosecutors said Manson and his followers — based out of the Spahn Ranch commune in Chatsworth — were trying to incite a race war that the cult leader believed was foretold in the Beatles' song "Helter Skelter."

At Watson’s most recent parole hearing in 2011, Deputy Dist. Atty. Patrick Sequeira called Watson the leader of the rampage at Polanski’s home; he had announced to the victims: “I am the devil. I am here to do the devil’s business.”

“His role within the family was a significant one,” Sequeira said. “He was essentially the main hit man…. These weren’t impulsive actions. Murdering seven people on two subsequent nights were not impulsive actions.”

During the 2011 hearing, Watson said his decades behind bars had given him time to reflect on his delusional beliefs and horrific crimes.

“My heart is filled with remorse for the tragedy I caused so many people,” he said. “I’m so deeply sorry that I allowed myself to get to the place of not valuing life.”

Addressing the family members of his victims, he said, “Because I cannot apologize to your loved one, I have chosen to honor their memories by living a clean and sober life.”

The parole board recognized Watson’s efforts to reform but found that he still posed a danger to society. The parole commissioners opined that he lacked a depth of insight into the grisly crimes and their effect on the nation.

Watson is in Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, about 40 miles outside Sacramento. Behind bars, he has married, divorced, fathered four children and become an ordained minister.

He also earned a bachelor’s degree in business management in 2009.

According to a website for Watson’s ministry, he works as a janitor and attends Bible study.

Most of the key players in the Manson murders — including Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten — continue to serve life sentences with the possibility of parole. Most, including Manson, have been denied repeated requests for parole.

In 2009, Manson follower Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme was released from prison.
Atkins, who stabbed Tate to death, was denied parole even when she was terminally ill. She died in September 2009.
