Americans Being Played Like a Fiddle

Charlie Daniels Tribute - Branco



Americans Being Played Like a Fiddle


Do you keep asking yourself what in the world is going on with all the mayhem playing out in the media, online and livestreaming chaos, rioting, looting and assaults on law enforcement? Well I have been asking those same questions and today while searching for articles on Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals I stumbled across one that literally shed light on the events of today even though this article was published in 2009. The article is Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution, The Alinsky Model and was written by David Horowitz.


I thought it was common knowledge that a Wellesley undergraduate named Hillary Rodham an avid admirer of Saul Alinsky wrote her 92-page senior thesis on Alinsky’s theories in 1969 after personally interviewing him for this project. She compared Alinsky to some well-known names in radical circles, Eugene Debs, Walt Whitman and Martin Luther King and entitled her thesis “There Is Only The Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” Cesar Chavez was trained for 10 years by Alinsky and went on to become the leader of the United Farmworkers Union.


It’s interesting to note that Saul Alinsky was born in Chicago 1909 and died in California in 1972. He considered himself a ‘rebel” yet his profession was that of a “community organizer”. He devoted his life organizing a revolution in America to destroy the system. In the 1930s he became socially intimate of the Al Capone mob and was taken under the wing of mobster Frank Nitti. Alinsky’s strategy was one of deception to promote social change. Alinsky’s focus was on changing the system of private property and individual rights.


America was taken by surprise by Barack Obama a community organizer in Chicago and a very astute disciple of Saul Alinsky who ran on a campaign of fundamentally transforming the United States of America. Obama summarized his campaign, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” Upon taking office Obama began by appointing known a communist (Van Jones) into top White House posts. In eight years Obama has used economic crisis to take over whole industries and attempted to nationalize the health care system. Obama used a single Alinsky principle that of taking power from the Haves and giving it to the Have-nots to conduct a destructive assault on the established order to accumulate power.


An SDS radical once wrote, “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” It is the accumulation of power to make the revolution. According to Alinsky the community organizer has a sole purpose to organize for power. He lives, dreams, eats, breathes, sleeps only for one thing, to build a mass power base he calls his army. He never names the end game but simply builds a power base to destroy the existing society and its economic system. He can organize a coalition of elements on the left to use any means to obtain the end. Policies are not important in themselves; they are instrumental – means to expanding the political base.


Not to be forgotten is Hillary who married Bill Clinton and later became first lady where she continued giving her support to Alinsky’s army. She lent her name to projects, endorsed Alinsky’s Industrial Areas foundation (IAF), raised money and organized events.


Obama at age 23 became an adept practitioner of Alinsky’s methods. In 1986 Obama was hired by the Alinsky team to organize residents on the South Side of Chicago, “while learning and applying Alinsky’s philosophy of street-level democracy.” The proposed solution to every problem in the South Side was a distribution of government funds. Obama went on to teach workshops on the Alinsky method until he went into politics in 1996. Remember Acorn – the voter registration drive? Obama later became Acorn’s attorney participating in a case to force Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law.


Saul Alinsky had praised Lucifer as the first rebel who effectively rebelled against the establishment and won his own kingdom and compared America to heaven on earth – the kingdom of social justice and freedom. And compared to this heaven even America is hell. Alinsky was willing to destroy the values, structures and institutions that sustain the society in which we live.


Radicals camouflage their agendas by calling themselves at different times Communists, socialists, new leftists, liberals, social justice activists and most consistently progressives. The “Progressive Party” was created by the Communist Party and led by then Vice President Henry Wallace and was the chosen vehicle to lead followers out of the Democratic Party. Progressives rejoined the Democrats in 1972 with the formation of a hundred-plus member Progressive Caucus and the ascension of Barack Obama to the presidency became its most important political force.


Conservatives are conservative and radicals are dangerous because conservatives pay attention to the consequences of actions, including their own and radicals don’t.


This was a very interesting article that pretty much takes us through the 8 year presidency of Barack Obama and set up the attempted take down of the presidency of Donald Trump beginning in earnest in 2016 and continues today. Simply put the radicals we see in action today do not play by any rules but are determined to destroy society as we know it. They say what they want (true or untrue) in order to sway and weaponized followers to do their dirty work.


America did not see this coming but God did and is not surprised by the chaos happening on the streets of our nation. The pandemic is simply one more method to create fear and overcome resistance to the goal of the radical left – the overthrow of the United States government. Cries for defunding the police, abolishing the police and all other kinds of radical ideas do not matter. It is the ultimate and total collapse of our society as we know it. But rest assured it won’t end there, because enough is never enough. When Charlie Daniels recorded “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” he could have been talking about today in America.


People scoff when I write that Donald Trump is the instrument chosen by God for such a time as this to stop evil and become a sword to the spirit of political correctness facing America today. They think that we’ll just pick up our arms and go to war because that’s what Americans have always done. I say not so quick “little buckaroo”.


2020 is the last roundup, the OK corral if you will. It is time to call evil what it is evil. The upcoming presidential election is only 60 days away. One side wants you to think they are winning, the other side knows what’s really happening politically. Your life matters. Your vote matters. Your faith in God matters. When you have one side playing by their own rules and nothing matters except winning, it is time to use our most dangerous weapon imaginable – the Power of Prayer. We must humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and ask God to heal our land, lest we perish. Our hope is not on man, government or any earthly being. Our hope is on Jesus Christ alone. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Pelosi Apology Owed




Pelosi Apology Owed


Have you heard the one about the democrat who walks into a San Francisco hair salon? This is the kind of story that could only happen in a Hollywood movie right? Wrong, it happened just this week as businesses have been closed down due to COVID-19.


An assistant for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi contacted a hairdresser who booth rents at a hair salon in San Francisco and made an afternoon appointment for the classic shampoo and blow dry. It was odd as almost all the nearby businesses had been boarded up due to heavy COVID-19 restrictions.


It’s unclear how this particular independent contractor had been contacted, yet the Pelosi assistant said they complied with all the rules as laid out by the establishment. That being the case why was madam speaker prancing around without wearing the required mask? Why was she even there in the first place?


The salon owner said her coming to the salon that had been closed for several months was a slap in the face to stylists throughout the city and nationwide as they continue to be shut down BECAUSE Speaker Pelosi refuses to negotiate with House Republicans to allow the nation to open up the economy.


So now Speaker Pelosi is demanding an apology from the salon owner for leaking her pictures to the press. Now where did I hear about leaking before? Oh yes I remember, it was continually during the past 4 years as leaking Trump stuff was considered fair game by House and Senate Democrats.


I’m surprised that the stylist didn’t unload on the speaker for not exercising her power in the House to broker a compromise with House Republicans and get the second stimulus check bill over to the President for his signature and money into the hands of the people who truly need a hand to pay bills, buy food and just to survive?


Now that the shoe is truly on the other foot, it is my personal opinion that an apology is owed to Americans from Speaker Pelosi and every politician at national, state and city level for putting our citizens and legal residents through the COVID-19 nightmare of the past 3+ months. Their failure to recognize what they have done to the average American families will set themselves up for chasing their registered voters over to the Trump camp, and many House and Senate congressional members will pay dearly in 60+ short days.


I have a feeling this will not pass anytime soon so Madam Speaker it seems that “what is good for the goose is also good for the ganderess”, would you like Ketchup to go with that egg-mask massage? – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Getting Caught Up In the Politic of Politics




Getting Caught Up In the Politic of Politics


Many of you have been reading my Real Truckmaster blogs and know my political preferences. It is nothing new to voice my opinion and call it like I see it. I haven’t always been politically active, but have a deep sense of patriotism when it comes to honoring the flag and the constitution.


Politics as we see it today hasn’t always been that way. Democrats haven’t acted the way they do now. Republicans haven’t done things the way they do now either. In fact we have more diverse views of politics being expressed by factions inside congress that are a reflection of the divisiveness in our society.


There have been times in our nation’s history where America reluctantly took up arms to combat and defeat fascism, Marxism and Communism rising up to threaten various parts of the world abroad. We call them World Wars where one side is determined to take by force and rule over a tribe, ethnicity, country or an entire continent, with the goal of worldwide domination.


In our country very few remember Senator McCarthy of years gone by who read on the floor of Congress the names of suspected card carrying Communists members in Congress. It created a huge scandal and it was thought that under every rock was a Communist. Fast forward in today’s world people proudly proclaim themselves to be fascists, Marxists and Communists and tout those ideologies as something to be sought after in America. Our long term Cold War with the former soviets and today’s technological war with the Chinese seem so non-threatening until the emergence of the China Virus which affects us even now.


I’m from Idaho, also part of the Pacific Northwest where we have active groups rising up in the Pacific Northwest in places like Portland and Seattle spreading across the nation like wildfires left unchecked. I saw a FB mem recently that said “only you can prevent Communism”.


So what does our future hold, we’ll just have to wait and see? I know the hardheadedness of people who want to do their own thing and be left alone, it’s in their DNA much like our pioneer ancestry and we’re fiercely patriotic which my family calls bringing out the Wilson.


I may be just getting old but I have no tolerance for stupid. When I see disrespectful people I just want to lay hands on them and straighten them out. Some might call me old school or maybe it’s my military training but I really don’t have time for nonsense. We used to have our own board of education, which naturally grew on grandma’s willow tree out back. She’d even let you (make you) go pick your own switch.


America is at a political crossroad. The choice could be no clearer than a candidate who blames America for being America or the one who looks forward to the greatness of an American future. We can no longer blame others for what we allow ourselves to settle for in politics. We must look past ourselves to envision what we can achieve individually and as a nation. Do we shoot for the moon, the stars and beyond or settle for just shooting the bull? – I am the Real Truckmaster!


What BLM Activation Really Does

What BLM Activation Really Does


We see daily on television and social media the plastering of Black Lives Matter like wallpaper saturating everything it touches, including people. Recently while celebrating with family and friends I had an opportunity to see the blatant fakeness of the importance of sports.


At first I thought my eyes had deceived me, but upon closer examination I realized that two baseball teams were competing in a playoff game where it really didn’t matter. The stadium was filled with cutouts of real people filling the stadium. This was something I’d expect at a Biden basement political rally to convince people that the stadium was packed with energetic supporters.


As I the station switched to a major basketball game with playbacks of previous games with all the distinct team jerseys of different colored it was all erased when the scene focused back on the game being played with basically everyone wearing black lives matter shirts. Even had Black Lives Matter painted beside the playing field and I wondered what happened.


I have no problem with black lives matter because all lives matter to God who created every single one, including those in the womb. The real problem isn’t with black lives not mattering it’s that when no life is treated with value it ceases to matter.


We have grown accustomed to living our instant shake-n-bake lives where we want what we want and we want it now – instant gratification.


I can even understand someone wanting to get their point across that Black Lives Matter. The message is simple, yet the method of delivery and the manner in which it is taken to extremes in its delivery is counterproductive. Plainly it is bully tactics to the extreme. Probably the same bullying tactics used in urban housing areas to keep folks in line by making them stay in line “I ain’t no snitch”.


It then becomes a game where everyone is not only expected to play, but required to participate. Everyone knows that lives matter, but now they are being pressured and forced to think and say that only black lives matter. One of the founders of BLM in one of American city went so far as to say that before any life matters, black lives have to matter FIRST!


How stupid and absurd is that? It insinuates that if black lives don’t matter, no life matters. It may be true for some people who pull out a gun and kill someone for no apparent reason at all. It most certainly true for abortion clinics that routinely kill the baby in the womb because women are told it is the woman’s right to choose. God created that baby and entrusted it to the mother to nourish and protect until adulthood. But really what lives are most affected statistically by abortion – black lives. In urban areas of large cities the lack of love, nurturing and parenting skills turn young people into natural born killers because they have not been taught to cherish life, not even their own.


There is no legislation or mandate that will force black lives to matter. It is a choice to treat everyone with dignity and respect. It is a matter of character to make every life matter. Painting it on the street, across the sky in huge letters, making banners and signs, even t-shirts worn by those sympathetic to the cause of black lives still leads back to a choice by each individual.


One of the Ten Commandments from God says don’t kill. There are state and federal laws declaring it unlawful to murder. So why do we tolerate the taking of human life? Every senseless killing could be prevented if every person thought they were important and treated others more highly than they treat themselves.


Romans 12: 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Carefully consider what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18 If it is possible on your part, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but leave room for God’s wrath. For it is written: “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says the Lord.”


We are told in Romans 12:18 to live at peace with everyone when we have the power to do so (paraphrased). So what is stopping us? Pride, thinking we are all that and a box of chips? Thinking we’re not valuable, so neither is anyone else?


Do you want to stop racism? – Stop talking about it. Start doing something to unify everyone. Help your family, neighbor, and even strangers without expecting anything in return. Being a servant to others is the most important job you can do. Place EVERYONE before yourself. – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Everybody Wants a Civil War – Until




Everybody Wants a Civil War – Until


We see it on social media, in news reports and political press releases as aggressors are victimized and victims are demonized when violence is confronted. Remember when then President Obama brought the police officer and the “victim” to the White House for a beer together,  was it to make amends or to lord over LEOs that the president stands on the side of the offender?


When did politics and law enforcement come together – when we were told that someone mailed suspicious packages to various Democratic legislators and high profile movie stars, then within a relatively short period of time an arrest was made with a white van, remember? The story was leaked to the press and even though picture released were of two different white vans, case closed – bad guy arrested and the story forgotten in the annals’ of history.


Every arrest or apprehension of a bad guy by LEOs was turned into a racial thing. Should it result in the death of the bad guy (offender) it soon became a bad cop thing? What started out as raise your hands and turn around became hands up don’t shoot, remember?


What about the ambush and murder of LEOs called to a potential crime, only to be turned into a crime scene? Officers sitting in their vehicles, shot by unknown suspects and nobody was arrested. When officers responding to a radio call were met with violence ending up in their murder, where was the media outrage?


Sanctuary City Violence in places like Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington where LEOs were told to stand down and only observe, turned quiet streets into chaos and terror for business owners and residents alike. Elected officials sided with criminals and domestic terrorists and demanded federal law enforcement not enter their cities.


Governors activated National Guard military police units in the District of Columbia WITHOUT WEAPONS. What were they supposed to do – dance? Yes that’s what they did because standing around looking like defanged kitty cats made a mockery of our military. Local establishments contaminated food and drink being sold to these soldiers, intent on making them sick or even die from broken glass in pizzas or cleaning solution in drinks – was anybody arrested or charged? No – it was just a mistake!


The offender in Minneapolis was a convicted criminal attempting to commit a crime of using counterfeit currency. Upon being arrested he appeared to be murdered by a bad cop who placed his knee on the neck of the offender for an excessive amount of time. The reaction was one of anger and fear that this bad cop would get away with murder, so he was fired and then charged. Turns out the man died of a drug overdose, confirmed by autopsy. By then the damage had already been done.


BLM and Antifa groups began expanding their campaign of terror and chaos across the nation in the name of George Floyd who became an instant “hero”, idolized by politicians and the media as his funeral was live streamed and law enforcement was publicly demonized once again. Elected officials began holding hands with terrorists while citizens were hung out to dry. Crime flourished and criminals became emboldened to the point that widespread looting, burning of property, injury and even death of innocent bystanders, business owners and residents became common place in America.


Local elected officials gave LEOs orders to stand down when rioting mobs began roaming the streets and citizens in places like St. Louis, Missouri where an armed husband and wife faced down a BLM mob trespassing on private property in a gated community. The couple was charged and the mob remains free.


In Kenosha, Wisconsin an armed 17 year old boy was attacked by 3 felons (1 armed) while protecting a business that had been previously burned. Fearing for his life, he ended up shooting his 3 attackers, killing 2 and was arrested for murder. The BLM mob remains free to continue their reign of terror again because elected officials allowed it to happen. The attackers were treated as heroes while the victim acting in self-defense was arrested and charged with murder.


In cities across the nation citizens are standing up to the unprecedented mob violence when elected officials threaten to reduce funding for LEOs and/or give stand down orders not to enforce certain laws or protect life and property.


Recent violence in the District of Columbia landing at the White House have drawn fire from President Trump for the mayor to stop the violence before federal LEOs will be brought in.


Leftist radicals, domestic terrorists, fascists, Antifa and Black Lives Matter are fighting a civil war with street rules from the playbook of Saul Alinsky who says to use their own rules against them as they will be unable to violate their own rules (loosely paraphrased).


All the civil unrest is a coordinated and organized attack on the government of the United States aimed directly at President Trump in an effort to remove him from office or make his administration ineffective. That leads me once again to believe that one person has organized a community of anarchists intent on causing the government to fail. I say follow the money and it will lead straight back to the source, which may be closer to the White House than you might think. – I am the Real Truckmaster!



What does it mean to be an American?




What does it mean to be an American?


Yeah I know you probably think it’s a ridiculous question but hey what have you got to lose, right? Unless you have lived in another country, ate with other people, slept and breathed the same air or have found yourself adhering to the same laws, customs and traditions you have no idea how fortunate you are to be living in the United States of America and calling yourself an American.


Don’t believe all the hype of the media or the political left, right or center either because they are biased and intent to make you believe the truth is a lie and lies are in fact truth.


I have traveled many roads in Southeast Asia where happy people did not have the creature comforts we enjoy. Cooking over a coal fire and sharing the contents with family, friends and guests brings everyone together smiling, laughing and enjoying the company of each other. The sights and smells of the town market is something I cherish and children playing with a frog always bring a warm smile.


I’ve walked the streets of Panama, fished and swam in the Panama Canal, watched the graceful stingrays in the Atlantic Ocean swimming above me. I’ve been mugged in broad daylight; rescued after midnight while stranded in a boat in the middle of the Panama Canal; always felt the warmth of friendship who really cared.


I’ve traveled from Bremerhaven to Bad Tolz and broke down on the autobahn; picked grapes with family and shared lunch with German friends. I’ve broken the cardinal rule of ordering from a German language menu by price and ending up with a meal I abhorred and could not eat.


I’ve driven the crowded roads in and around Tokyo; watched a bluegrass festival in the forests of Japan; spent the weekend exploring the source of the sulfur pits that smelled like rotten eggs; smelled the cherry blossoms and rode the bullet train; ate meals with many a friend and walked through the snow in Hokkaido eating ice cream.


For friends it is not goodbye – it is See You Later Again!


Of all the places I’ve lived and visited over the years the most welcome sights is that of the Flag of the United States waving over military installations and US Embassies, our piece of Americana that you cannot imagine until you have gone so far from home in a strange and foreign land.


What being an American means to me:

  • Enjoying freedom that isn’t free.
  • Putting others before myself
  • Treating everyone as I want to be treated.
  • Not lording myself over anyone else, but seeing everyone as equals.
  • Working to raise my family free from government interference.
  • Helping my community and neighbors because I can.
  • Doing my part to help others live the American dream.
  • Living MY American Dream for a better future for our nation.
  • Defending the weak and defenseless.
  • Standing up to the bullies, and there are many.
  • Lending a helping hand to lift another up, not just giving a handout
  • Although at times a handout is better than simply ignoring other human beings
  • Calling evil for what it is
  • Rewarding good behavior
  • Holding myself and others accountable


America has been called a melting pot where other peoples, ideas and cultures merge together to develop our own customs and traditions while maintaining our cultural roots. People do not come to America to be hyphenated, but to be accepted as equal, with the same opportunity for employment, advancement and the blessings and riches available for those willing to work hard and achieve their own American Dream. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Searching for American Made




Searching for American Made


Many years ago I bought a brand new Ford pickup. Drove it off the dealer’s lot and kept it for about 11 years before selling it. One day while looking at the data plate inside the driver side door frame it said assembled in Canada.


Recently while shopping with my wife in a supermarket chain store I remembered I needed a padlock. As I walked through the store I decided that I wanted an American made padlock. I found myself near the back of the store and on the wall were a variety of padlocks in various makes and sizes. So I found one that was the right size and looked at the packaging – Made in China. WRONG! I can do better than that so I kept looking. Another one looked really good – Made in Mexico. Still another made in Canada. So I thought to myself and probably said it out loud – why can’t I find padlock made in the USA? I ended up getting one that was assembled in China from American made parts. Geeze……you got to be kidding me. Doesn’t anybody in the USA make padlocks anymore?


That got me to thinking about how hard it is to really find something made in the USA. I mean something that I want or need right now. If I want a US flag, there are many choices and the ones with the flag saying Made in the U.S.A. are pretty good ones too.


Reality sets in when you need an item then go online. You search for a particular item and it comes up rather quickly. The price is right and it’s a bit cheaper than in a local store and shipping is free. WOW! I recently took a chance on a doorbell camera. The item was described as a second generation model and free shipping. The item came in a couple of days and when I opened it, it wasn’t even the item described in the ad. Right away I contacted the seller and complained they had advertised item “A” but sent item “B” (a completely different item). I asked for return authorization. They said I couldn’t return it as their warehouse was in China.


So I searched again and found the name brand item I was looking for and as a reconditioned item the price was right and I ordered it. I had it in a day or two and the box was the right brand and I was happy that finally I had the item I wanted. I opened the box and yes it was the name brand I had ordered. Just for kicks I looked at the back of the item and it said made in China.


There was a time when workers signed their name to their work as a sign of quality. I haven’t seen that much anymore. The old adage that “it’s good enough for government work” seems to infer there are no standards. Do they even do that anymore? There is one name that stands for quality workmanship and it’s very pronounced so it cannot be missed. Unknowingly people falsely assume it is a sign of flaunting the name. In a way maybe it is but in reality the name TRUMP signifies extreme quality in construction.


There is a computer company that manufactures mobile devices and people are amazed that it took quite a long time for it to be rated as a fortune 500 company then in just a few short years it became ten times more valuable. It’s not that hard to understand after realizing that they moved their assembly line to China where it costs less to produce their product and Americans will gladly pay for their new technological inventions.


I challenge you to shop around no matter what you are about to purchase. Check the brand, look at the device and examine the country of origin to see if it really is a really good deal or was it even made in America? There have been various trade agreements whereby poultry and livestock were slaughtered in the US, shipped to China or other overseas locations to be processed and then shipped back to US consumers. That has to stop. American made products should be available throughout America before they are replaced by foreign made products. I have travelled extensively overseas and I often find myself looking for made in USA labels on brand name items. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Time Waits for Nobody




Time Waits for Nobody


Here we are on the eve of the most important presidential election in the history of our nation. The candidates have stated their goals, plans and aspirations for the transformation of America. In essence battle lines have been drawn. There is no in between, you are either for or against them based on your assessment of their political track record or your perception of their character.


Forget all the smoke and mirrors tactics of past elections. Disregard all the hype coming out of the media, across the internet, television or radio. The ads are designed to draw you in by making you feel good or feel bad depending on which side of the political spectrum you support. What matters is whether either candidate supports your basic core values or religious beliefs.


Maybe I’m a realist, or just a plain old fantasist call me whatever fits your narrative but I believe the cup is half full so that we as patriotic Americans can fill it back up with what’s important to us. The sweat of hard work is sweet when providing for family, having a safe environment to raise our children, grandchildren and their children and being able to go to a place to worship God as I choose.


I believe in the rule of law as defined by the US Constitution. The right to peaceful assembly is not the right to bring anarchy and chaos to our doorstep, just know that you will be stopped.


I also believe that when you throw your hat into the political arena you shine a spotlight on yourself. Good, bad or indifferent the reflection is you. Don’t seek political power to gain financially at the expense of your constituents. Say what you mean. Do what you said you would. Treat everyone as you wish to be treated. Put others before yourself. Politics is more than just a game and it should be seen as a means to make life better for everyone.


I consider mandating a threatening act and I don’t like to be threatened. I consider lying as lying and I don’t like to be lied to. Giving your word is more important than signing your name to a written lie with no intent to honor it.


Professions I watch out for: Doctors, Lawyers and Politicians – each have their place and are needed at times, yet all are dispensable. Never mess with or in mom’s kitchen. Never tee off your barber, cook, dentist, or undertaker. Customer Service means exactly that – serve to satisfy your customer.


American’s have a choice on November 3rd – to vote or not. Inform yourself on the issues (taxes, welfare, public safety, abortion and every issue important to you) and how each candidate stands on those issues. Then when you vote you then have the right to complain or challenge your elected officials on their conduct in office. When you do not vote (no matter the reason) you forfeit that right and should just remain silent. Voting is a right of citizenship. Choosing to not vote is giving up that right.


When politicians promise to fix things, look at their political track record? Are their promises things they could or should have already done or are their promises things they have been doing to or for Americans? Keep in mind there are no PERFECT politicians. Politics is a game of compromises (give up to get). Are you better off now, than you were before? – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Choose Wisely Grasshopper

Choose Wisely Grasshopper


The political divide in America has never been wider and the choices clearer that they are and you don’t need hindsight to see the fallacy of the left in 2020. Like many of you what I see happening in our cities is truly sickening. Emboldened by the  rioting in Portland and Seattle, domestic terrorists and fascists and Marxist groups are openly attacking law enforcement, federal facilities and innocent civilians while the Democratically elected officials like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot are concerned with their personal safety. Her house is surrounded by a high steel fence with LEOs guarding entrances insuring that neither protestors nor the media get too close.


We do not hear condemnation of the violence from governors, mayors or city council members nor are there requests for federal assistance (except $$). Constitutionally (state and federal) these elected officials are charged with the public safety of everyone, not just their own immediate family or private property. To act selfishly while ignoring the rioting, assaults and murder is a violation of public trust and a gross abuse of power and misuse of their elected office.


I charge you to look at what’s happening in your neighborhood. Is it safe to walk the streets at night? I mean is it really safe to take an evening stroll through your part of town? Do you feel safe sitting on the porch at night talking with family and friends? In many neighborhoods it is not. Drive by shootings and home invasions plague many inner city neighborhoods and into the suburbs.


This is a critical election year. If you watched the DNC “Convention” you will have seen what they promise for America should you vote for their Democratic Party candidates. They (the Democratic Party candidates) have promised to raise your taxes; Defund local law enforcement and/or abolish the Police; Open our borders and tear down the wall between the US and Mexico; Mandate $15 per hour minimum wage; Free college education; Forgiveness of college loans; Medicare for All (socialized medicine); and even if ill advised by scientists to shut down the entire nation indefinitely; and Mandating mail-in voting for all.


Rioting, Demonstrating, Vandalizing and Assaulting or Murder is not a right protected or defined in the Constitution, they are criminal acts and violators must be held accountable.


The RNC “Convention” has not happened yet, but President Trump has promised to fight for American First, jobs, more wages, lower taxes and restore public safety to America. The future of America depends upon YOU. Your vote counts.


It doesn’t matter whether you love or hate Trump.


That is your choice.


However it is your responsibility to go to the polls and vote. Do it in person or by choosing to vote with an absentee ballot. Voting is a citizen’s right and cannot nor should not be mandated. Voting Democrat or Republican is also your choice. Choosing not to vote is a choice (by default) and robs you of the right to complain about government intervention or abuse of their elected office. Voting is a responsibility and I urge you to choose wisely grasshopper. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Art of the Political Debate




Art of the Political Debate


In the mid-1960s during my high school years in Southwestern Idaho I wasn’t into arguing (except with my three brothers), confrontations or the high school debate team. I was the skinny, shy kid who got picked on by school bullies. That was until Chuck moved into town from Oakland, California. Chuck had been a golden gloves boxer and we were in the same Civil Air Patrol class. Chuck found out about my bully problem one Friday as I was preparing to go off campus to get my butt kicked. Chuck said he would go as my proxy and then my bully problem ceased.


During my military years order and discipline were bred into every facet of training until it became a way of life. There was no discussion. Orders came from above, through the lieutenant and then the sergeant and we did as we were told. If you questioned those orders it wasn’t considered debating, it was insubordination and extra duty was handed out liberally for those who needed reinforcement. As I moved up the ladder I became the sergeant and I expected immediate compliance to the orders I gave.


After the military I worked at various jobs and always did my best to insure there were no complaints for the work I did. It didn’t always work out. There were times when my bosses were just plain wrong. My trying to show them the error of their ways often backfired.


Politics is a whole different animal and although they call it a political debate, it is usually a televised spectacle where each side attacks their political opponent. It is more akin to a street fight where anything goes and civility goes right out the window.


Instead of a moderator asking a question and each side argue their side in a real debate.


I watched as questions are being asked, but the answer is a flat out attack on the opponent’s character as what happened in the RNC Presidential Debates for the 2016 election. The first debate had candidates united against their political opponent – Democrat Hillary Clinton. After that it was Donald Trump on the offensive attacking each of his Republican opponents until he was literally the last man standing.


When the debates began between opposing political party candidates Clinton and Trump the moderator at one point proceeded to give candidate Clinton the question before hand as evidenced by her readily available answers. Candidate Trump did not see the questions prior and had to think fast in providing answers.


What I wanted to hear then and what I want to hear now are the presidential candidates for the 2020 election telling me what they will do for my family and the country. How do they stand on these and other issues that are important to me?


Will they back our nations Law Enforcement Officers?

Will they bring God back into the public square?

Will they bring jobs back to the US?

Will they bring manufacturing back to US soil?

Will they hold accountable and punish lawbreakers?

Will they make healthcare both accessible and affordable?

Will they open up the country safely?

Will they provide safety and security for my family?

Will they raise my taxes?

Will they shut down abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood?

Will they stop the violence sweeping our nation?

Will they support and defend the Constitution?


I don’t want to hear lies or sweet sounding words pandering to get my vote. I want to hear how they feel about these and other subjects, and what are they prepared to do about backing up their answers.


We are a nation of people, different backgrounds and political parties. We should be a nation that can discuss our political differences calmly as civilized human beings, then go out and have a burger or share a pizza or shop at the same store without hostile and uncivilized discourse between us. We don’t have to like each other’s position on any issue, but we should still remain friends. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
