NO MORE RINOs for America

NO MORE RINOs for America

My friends, I say this in ALL sincerity; Hillary, Obama and the entire regime, as well as the DNC is responsible for the events we are facing regarding emails, murders, traitorous behavior, theft, bribes, graft and corruption as well as everything else that is wrong with the American political setting, but make NO mistake, the GOP, RNC and RINOs in Washington D.C. are just as responsible.

NO MORE RINOs! Vote em out, ALL of them…

It really IS time to drain the swamp and start over, and in starting over we need to employ the United States Constitution, AS WRITTEN, and go from there.

News media has abandoned honesty and integrity

I have always had some great blogging friends and James Shott at Observations is one of them. This is HIS story and I am using it with his permission. Enjoy.

News media has abandoned honesty and integrity

james-shottThe news media has been referred to as the “Fourth Estate” for a long time. Thomas Carlyle, in his book “On Heroes and Hero Worship,” attributes the origin of the term to Sir Edmund Burke: “Burke said there were Three Estates in Parliament; but, in the Reporters’ Gallery yonder, there sat a Fourth Estate more important far than they all.” Burke believed the Fourth Estate to be far more important than the other estates because its job was informing the public of what Parliament was up to.

The high regard for the Fourth Estate carried over to the colonies, and when the United States was formed the work of what we now commonly refer to as the news media warranted protections in the Constitution, specifically the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, because its function was viewed as essential to the republic and protected the purveyors of important information from those who might prefer their activities to not receive wide dissemination, and who might use the courts or other means to keep important information from being made public.

Where news media is concerned, the First Amendment provides: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech or of the press …”

However, while the Constitution can protect the media from those who dislike it by guaranteeing its freedom to tell all it knows, it does not have the ability to enforce integrity, honesty and fairness on the media. Those qualities are expected to be organizational and personal, ingrained in news providers and students of journalism, who should be taught and adopt the ethics of journalism and practice them always.

People in certain positions in our society have the job and the duty to play it straight down the middle, without allowing whatever personal feelings they may have to enter into the performance of their job. Among these are referees and other sports officials; judges in legal proceedings and other adjudicatory activities; and the news media, the people who provide the public with the critical information necessary for people to be able to make informed decisions.

Why do you write a Blog Fred?

Why do you write a Blog Fred?

fred-8-20-16Lately, and several times in the past as well, I have had some people ask me why I blog, why I take the time and exert the effort.

“If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worthy reading,
Or do things worth the writing.” (Benjamin Franklin)

OK, here’s the *WHY*, short version; I was forced into 100% disability retirement when I was 48 years old, that was almost 15 years ago, and blogging is my *outlet*, it keeps a lot of people that really need to be *dealt with* from getting hurt.

I began this version of The TexasFred Blog back in April of 2007, this is the 3rd edition of TTFB, the 1st edition was a freebie blog from Google and as most folks know, you get what you pay for, and it was FREE. The 2nd edition was accidentally *crashed* by my blog guru guy, so, now I have this.

I write about a myriad of topics, I am not one dimensional, but my primary interest has been guns, politics and what has/is happening to this once great nation. I have pointed out, in detail, how the Democrats have done irreparable damage to the United States, and as time passed I came to realize that the GOP had moved so far to the left that they were nothing more than Democrat Lite and not much, if ANY better than the Democrats.

Sadly, the GOP has embraced the ways of our enemies; Communists, Socialists, Liberals and other assorted trash.

So, I began a selfish indulgence as I used the blog to vent my anger and frustrations. It beat the *other* options, and let’s face it; I’m a BIG guy, I don’t look good in *prison orange*, it’s just NOT my color.

Once upon a time I had aspirations of making a bit of money as a blogger, I knew I had a lot to say, and it always seemed that people wanted to hear it, but other than a few very generous donors I haven’t made much money, just enough to keep the blog on line, and of late my donations have dried up, but after a while even that didn’t bother me as I began to actually see, and feel that I was making a difference.

Why do I blog? Democrats and Liberals hate me. That is a great reason in MY opinion. Continue reading

Politics in a Nutshell

Politics in a Nutshell

Attack Eagle and Flag

A summation of POLITICS in the world today, and sadly, pretty far back into the past too. I honestly believe that the Founding Fathers would be in shock if they could see us today. The pundits cover politics much better than the Mainstream Media ever dreamed of doing.

If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
~Jay Leno~

The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
~Henry Cate, VII~

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office

If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven.
~Will Rogers~

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev~

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.
~Clarence Darrow~ Continue reading
