The Angry Man

Absolutely, positively one of the very best articles I have read since all this hullabaloo over the election began. I wish I could attribute it to its rightful author, but no one knows who it is., so I’ll simply award it to Anonymous. But who ever you are, you nailed it my friend. I would say that in defense of the ladies out there, you could simply re-title it the “The Angry Woman,” or how about simply “The Angry American”? Having said all that, I believe the original title carries some extra weight and emphasis. I don’t know about you, but I am The Angry Man, and darn proud of it. Give me some good responses to this is you agree. If you don’t, . . . .  well . . . crawl back under your rock and whine. 

For all the interest group pandering that shapes modern American politics, the group that may well have decided the election has come down to the demographic of “The Angry Man.”

The Angry Man is difficult to stereotype. He comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America , from sophisticated urbanite to rural redneck, Deep South to Yankee North, Left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

No matter where he’s from, Angry Men share many common traits; they aren’t asking for anything from anyone other than the promise to be able to make their own way on a level playing field. In many cases, they are independent businessmen and employ several people. They pay more than their share of taxes and they work hard. Damn hard, for what they have and intend to keep.

He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the Christmas party for the employees at his company, three sets of braces, college educations or a beautiful wedding or two. Not because he was forced to, but because it’s the right thing to do.

The Angry Man believes the Constitution should be interpreted as it was written. It is not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of appointed judges and political winds.

The Angry Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun and use it in defense of his home, his country and his family. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone if necessary to achieve those goals gives him only momentary pause.

The Angry Man is not, and never will be, a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina. He got his people together and got the hell out. Then, he went back in to rescue those who needed help or were too stupid to help themselves in the first place. He was selfless in this, just as often a civilian as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter. Victimhood syndrome buzzwords; “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” don’t resonate with The Angry Man. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him.

His last name, his race and his religion don’t matter. His ancestry might be Italian, English, African, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, Russian, Hispanic or any of a hundred others. What does matter is that he considers himself in every way to be an American. He is proud of this country and thinks that if you aren’t, you are whole-heartedly encouraged to find one that suits you and move there.

The Angry Man is usually a man’s man. The kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, go hunting, play golf, maintain his own vehicles and build things. He coaches kid’s baseball, soccer and football and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, design a factory or work the land. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant so that you can keep the lights on while never knowing everything it took to do that. The Angry Man is the backbone of this country.

He’s not racist, but is truly disappointed and annoyed, when people exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their ethnicity. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they’re willing to work hard and play by the rules. He expects other people to do the same. Above all, he has integrity in everything he does.

The Angry Man votes, and he loathes the dysfunction now rampant in government. It’s the victim groups being pandered to and the “poor me” attitude that they represent. The inability of politicians to give a straight answer to an honest question. The tax dollars that are given to people who simply don’t want to do anything for themselves. The fact that, because of very real consequences, he must stay within a budget but for some obscure reason the government he finances doesn’t. Mostly, it’s the blatantly arrogant attitude displayed implying that we are too stupid to run our own lives and only people in government are smart enough to do that.

The Angry Man has reached his limit. When a social justice agitator goes on TV, leading some rally for Black Lives Matter, safe spaces or other such nonsense, he may bite his tongue but, he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

But when government officials are repeatedly caught red-handed breaking the law and getting off scot-free, The Angry Man balls-up his fists and readies himself for the coming fight. He knows that this fight, will be a live or die situation, so he prepares fully. Make no mistake, this is a fight in which he is not willing to lose and he will never give up.

Obama calls him a Clinger

Hillary calls him Deplorable

Bill calls him Redneck                                            

BLM calls him a Racist

Feminists calls him Sexist

ISIS calls him an Infidel

Donald Trump calls him an American

and so do I!!!

Who is Kellyanne Conway?

I am so disgusted at the mean-spirited, jealous, whining, progressive liberals who continue to trash this woman about whom they know nothing. How dare they speak ill of this person. They should all be striving to achieve even a thimble full of her accomplishments  during her lifetime. Instead, they choose to trash her at every step. Shameful, but expected behavior coming from a group of Americans that have not a clue what life is all about other than their selfish little world within they live.

Just  weeks after Donald John Trump was elected 45th president of the United States of America, his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway speaks out about the real reason why he won.

In a landslide election, Donald J. Trump shocked liberals and republicans alike when he defeated Hillary Clinton in a historic, unprecedented win. And to say that people were astonished at Donald Trump’s victory would be the understatement of the century.

But behind Donald Trump’s victory, stood one woman. So who is this unique lady responsible for helping Trump secure the highest office in the land? Who is Kellyanne Conway?

Throughout his campaign, liberals tried to portray Trump as a he-man-woman-hater (if you don’t recall the term from Little Rascals, please disregard and keep reading.) But it is simply incomprehensible to think that a man “with no respect for women” would hire one. It’s a fact that the media has certainly overlooked and attempted to bury.

In the biggest and most critical “job opportunity” of his life, Donald J. Trump entrusted his political campaign– and ultimately, his fate– to a woman. And now that she’s been appointed counselor to the president, Conway will be the highest-ranking woman in the White House.

When asked how she felt about being the first woman to “break the glass ceiling,” Conway responded, “I want everybody to remember, that it was Donald J. Trump who elevated a woman to the highest position in his campaign, much like he has done in the Trump Corporation for a number of decades– it is he who gave women responsibilities.”

She traveled with Trump throughout his campaign in its last months and advised him, as well as appeared frequently on TV to speak on his behalf.

Conway considers herself blessed to be given the opportunity. She shared, “I’m not a big gender-identity person, and I wasn’t hired for my gender, but it’s . . . a pretty cool thing to say to my three daughters and my son. Many women work really hard and never get their shot. I feel blessed to have gotten my shot.”

I must admit that after learning a bit more about this unique woman, my admiration for Mrs. Kellyanne Conway has only grown all the more. It’s no wonder why she’s the first female campaign manager in the history of America to win a presidential campaign.

As a Republican campaign manager, strategist, and pollster,  Conway is a queen of wearing many hats– and she wears them quite well.

Aside from her influence in politics, Conway is also the president and CEO of The Polling Company Inc./Woman Trend. Her company has consulted and conducted market research for some of the leading companies in America such as Major League Baseball, The Federalist Society, Martha Stewart, American Express, and ABC News.

Kellyanne Elizabeth (Fitzpatrick) Conway was born on January 20, 1967, in an impoverished little neighborhood just outside of Camden,New Jersey. Conway’s parents led a very simple lifestyle; her Irish father owned a small trucking company while her Italian mother worked at a bank.

When she was only three years old, Conway’s parents divorced. And from an early age, Kellyanne witnessed first-hand what hard working women looked like. Young Conway was raised by her single mother, Diane Fitzpatrick, as well as her grandmother and two aunts– who all worked tirelessly to help make ends meet.

Conway traces her conservative world-view to growing up in a household, “where family and faith and self-reliance were premier. We were not encouraged or allowed to complain or talk about what we didn’t have.”

It wasn’t long before Kellyanne acquired a job herself. For eight summers throughout her schooling years, the bright-eyed and blonde young Kellyanne worked grueling hours of manual labor as a blueberry picker on a farm in Hammonton, New Jersey. And to this day, she credits her fighter spirit and strong work ethic to that farm.

Conway shared, “The faster you went, the more money you’d make. Everything I learned about life and business started on that farm.” At age 16 Kellyanne won the New Jersey Blueberry Princess pageant. And at 20, her hard work and determination helped her win the World Champion Blueberry Packing competition– which is no easy feat!

But Kellyanne was not only a beautiful hard-worker, she was also quite brilliant. After graduating from St. Joseph High School in 1985, Conway graduated magna cum laude from Trinity  College in Washington, D.C., earning a degree in political science.

Conway went on to study at Oxford University and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, a prestigious honors society, and later earned a law degree with honors from George Washington University  Law Center. (She now describes herself as a “fully recovered” attorney.)

Early on in her career, Conway appeared on TV frequently throughout the ’90s to take a stand against the Clintons. Since then, the brilliant and outspoken republican has provided commentary on more than 1,500 TV shows.

Throughout her schooling, Kellyanne planned to establish herself as a lawyer, but God had other plans for her life. The half-Irish, half-Italian young lawyer soon found her professional niche in 1988, while working for Ronald Reagan’s pollster, Dick Wirthlin, in the summer before she graduated from George Washington University Law School. Her first assignment was to demystify the gender voting gap: “How could the GOP attract more women?”

Kellyanne had discovered her purpose. Seven years after that life-changing assignment, Conway founded The Polling Company/Woman Trend, a consulting firm that specializes in market research. A decade later, she co-authored a book titled “What Women Really Want: How American Women Are Quietly Erasing Political, Racial, Class, and Religious Lines to Change the Way We Live.

Raised by four women, ironically, Conway chose to work in what she calls a man’s world — especially as a Republican political pollster.

Conway told CNN, “Republican politics can sometimes feel like you’re walking into, you know, an Elks Club or bachelor party.” She recalled a potential client — a man — asking how she’d balance kids and work. “It’s like, ‘I just hope you ask all the male consultants. Are you going to give up your weekly golf game and your mistresses?’ Because they seem really, really busy too,’” recalled Conway.

But in that “world full of men,” Kellyanne shines. For decades, she has provided a steadfast, fearless, and persistent conservative voice for republicans across our nation. Conway is a long-time pro-life activist, Second Amendment supporter, she stands with Israel, and she boldly defends the Biblical definition of marriage every opportunity she gets.

Pro-life activist Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, talked to The Stream about Conway. “Kellyanne was already a star in her own capacity before she led Donald Trump’s campaign victory,” Hawkins said. “Her broad knowledge of key issues that matter to conservatives was well-established, especially in regards to abortion, conscience rights and religious freedom. Her presence in the White House should be not only a source of comfort to those of us who have worked with Kellyanne for years, but also a source of pride and encouragement. Kellyanne is one of us, a respected leader in the pro-life movement who helped guide organizations with key messaging and wisdom many times over. President-Elect Trump is wise to keep Kellyanne by his side as he takes the oath of the 45th President of the United States.”

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Chair of the Select Panel on Infant Lives and member of the Trump transition team, also added, “Kellyanne has worked worked tirelessly throughout her career as an advocate for the pro-life movement. She understands that a majority of Americans support common sense regulations for the abortion industry and were deeply troubled by what a Hillary Clinton presidency might mean for legislation, like the Hyde Amendment, a four-decades-old measure to prevent taxpayer funding for abortion-on-demand that, thanks to the 2016 Democratic platform, no longer enjoys bipartisan support. Kellyanne is one of the most talented strategists in politics, and I am grateful for her leadership throughout this campaign in communicating President-elect Trump’s pro-life message.  I look forward to working with the new administration in our continued efforts to protect women and the unborn.”

Conway met Trump in 2006, when she was living in one of his buildings, according to the Washington Post. She even served on the condo board of the Trump World Tower in Manhattan. Conway  recalled being surprised to find how involved Trump was– even showing up to meetings to hear residents’ concerns. Over the following couple of years, Trump would call her to say he’d seen her on TV and ask her opinion about varying issues.

In March 2015, Trump asked Conway to help strategize for his presidential bid and even offered her a job on the campaign, but she declined. Over a year later, on Aug. 17, 2016, Conway accepted the role as his campaign manager — a decision that would alter the course of their lives, and history, forever.

But there’s much more to Kellyanne than just politics. Conway is an outspoken woman of faith, devoted wife, and proud mother of four. Kellyanne’s husband is George T. Conway III, who as a young lawyer played a historic—and largely hidden—role in the impeachment of Bill Clinton.

While many believe in luck, Kellyanne believes meeting her hubby George was by Divine appointment. According to The New Yorker, their romance began after Conway saw a picture of Kellyanne on the cover of a Washington society magazine and asked a mutual friend to set them up.

The lovebirds met the following year, and tied the knot in 2001, when Kellyanne was 37-years-old. Together, the Conways have four children — including twins– between the ages of six and eleven.

Conway recalled the joys of being a pregnant middle-aged woman,” I had my first children [twins] at thirty-seven, then I had two daughters in my forties, forty-one and almost forty-three,” she said. “They say there are no eggs left in your forties, but there were two rolling around in there somewhere. I was surprised both times, like, ‘Oh! O.K. Not a stomach ache.’ ”

And despite her hectic career, Conway considers her family her greatest priority on this side of eternity. And like all working mothers, time with her children is precious.

In the middle of her interview with CNN, Kellyanne paused to take time to listen to her 12-year-old-daughter, Claudia, play piano, asked her twin brother, George, about the birthday party they just returned from, and took some time to help her younger daughters, Charlotte and Vanessa, with their hair.

The Conways have made their home in Alpine, New Jersey and have no desire to be in the limelight. In fact, they’re rarely seen in public– unless there’s a baseball game nearby.

 

“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory. She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing,” Trump said in a statement.

“I want all the little girls out there to know that the lessons are very simple. Be kind your entire life because all the kindness I showed to other people came back to me manifold in this campaign. And secondly and most importantly, if you work hard and you get your shot one day, you too will shine. You have to believe in yourself, don’t listen to the critics, don’t listen to the naysayers. You know who you are. You’re beautiful, you’re smart, you can do it. That’s my message to all those little girls dreaming out there.” – Kellyanne Conway

Kellyanne Conway’s steadfast character and undeniable love for her family sets her apart, while her faith and trust in the Lord is indeed a beautiful sight to behold. Thank you Kellyanne, for your unashamed faith and unwavering principles. May God Bless our new Leaders. And May God Bless America!

I do not know who the authored this piece, but it is very well done!

 

Unbelievable!

But is it? Actually, when you get right down to it, nothing this fellow did or will do is beyond the realm possibility and in most cases expected. How can any American consider this guy a patriot after all he did while in office for eight years to tarnish the name of the United States. And now, he fires one last shot across the bow, one final slap in the face, one last farewell action to remind us that he is who he is — a Muslim. He hates America, and tried desperately for eight years to tear apart our foundation, our culture, our identity, and our obsession and reference to that “piece of parchment.” This action was uncalled for, and a downright spit in our face. I refuse to even consider this animal a human being let alone an American. I honestly believe he has duped this country and only time will tell who and what he truly is. Sickening! Can someone out there explain to me how one can respect this piece of garbage; some liberal, please tell me what causes you to respect and follow this fellow. I am at a loss!

CBO and their Mythical Math

I have always considered Newt Gingrich to be one of the politically astute members of the Washington crowd. An historian and very knowledgeable gent when it comes to the workings of our Govt. Additionally, while I did not realize the CBO was left leaning organization, as one who has studied Economics, I have always seriously questioned some their ridiculous findings. Now, Mr. Gingrich clears the mystery of their mythical math for me. How about you?

Oh, one more thing, if you’ve not read, “Art of the Deal” you don’t know what you are missing about Mr. Trump, and I do believe it will give you an insight as to what to expect from him.

Let’s Kill All The Lawyers

Title paraphrased from William Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2. H.

This is a superb article written by nonetheless a fellow lawyer. It always bothered me that every politician seems to be a lawyer, but never looked at it quite the way this gent does. And by golly, I think he is correct. Read for yourself and you decide, but I personally believe he has nailed it. They are useless in cabinet positions, especially in one where they have no experience or training in the subject at hand.
