Trump Serve Man

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Remember that episode of the Twilight Zone where the alien with the great big head came "to serve man"? One of the all-time great episodes! Although today, we probably couldn't call them "aliens", we'd have to say something like "undocumented extraterrestrials"!

Anyway, if you will recall, the aliens came to Earth, to eliminate hunger and famine, war and disease, and allow man to live a more pastoral lifestyle. They brought with them a book in their own language, whose title was translated "To Serve Man". Turns out (spoiler alert!) that after the people of Earth had laid down their arms and accepted all of the ministrations of the friendly aliens, they discovered the rest of the book was...a cookbook! "It's a cookbook!" the translator cried, as the aliens were herding members of the human race onto their ship for a "visit" to their planet, where the hapless Earthlings would fulfill their destiny as Trump steaks. One scene that didn't make it past the cutting room floor was the aliens handing out "Make Earth Great Again" hats!

So, I pondered this as I contemplated the meaning of "Make America Great Again". I mean, I know what it means to me and possibly you, but what exactly does it mean to Donald Trump? "Make America Great Again" is the great "Hope and Change" for 2016. Conservatives can project their own values onto it, but then, so can liberals! There's the whole question of "New York values". When Ted Cruz brought this up, he was quoting what Trump himself had said in an interview. It had nothing to do with 9-11, but that didn't stop Trump from wrapping himself in the flag and distorting the meaning of what Cruz was referring to. Much like the way Trump's words about Mexican immigrants was twisted out of context (for which I defended him) Trump had no problem twisting Cruz's quotation of his own words to imply that they had a different, more sinister meaning. Never mind that whole "Do unto others" thing!

And Trump says he will surround himself with "the best people". Best according to whom? What if Trump deems Chuck Schumer, Michael Bloomberg and Gavin Newsome as "the best people" to bring about what makes America great, and coincidentally liberal, in his eyes? Trump has a long record of donating to liberals, being on the liberal side (or both sides) of most issues. Personally, I think that Trump is a liar and will say basically anything about anything on any given day. When the dust has settled, which Donald Trump would America wake up with?

This may be moot as there are indications that Trump isn't trying very hard to win. Hillary Clinton has raised about 40 times as much cash as Trump, she has about a 20 to one margin* in state and national staff, not to mention the PAC money going to Hillary. One PAC alone has promised that Trump will run into a "billion dollar buzzsaw".

Trump has made pronouncements about not only not needing conservatives, but of not needing the Republicans in order to win. Sounds a bit delusional to me.

I was briefly encouraged when Trump published a list of Supreme Court justices he said would choose from. (His sister, whom he said would be a "phenomenal” SCOTUS was not on the list.) But then, within 24 hours, he backed away from that pledge and said he might pick someone on the list or he might not. Bold, decisive leadership!

His unfavorables are higher than "Lyin' Hillary's". And that's even before the billion dollar buzzsaw kicks in. If Trump is the candidate, he's already lost California and his home state of New York. At least Mondale carried Minnesota! Hillary got twice as many votes as Trump in the NY primary and if she gets Bernie's voters, the match could be as high as three to one. California hasn't elected a Republican in a statewide race in years. It would take a minimum of an FBI indictment to put a dent in Hillary's dominance in the Golden State.

What's the solution? First, for my friends the Branch Trumpidians: Sunshine, rainbows, lollipops, unicorns and wishful thinking. Run along now!

For the rest of us, if Hillary and Trump are the nominees, hunker down for at least four more years of Obama (eight, if she avoids his boneheaded economic policies) and a generation of liberal Supreme Court decisions. I wish our prospects were better, but I calls 'em like I sees 'em!

Good luck and Godspeed!

The 2016 Paul Revere Awards Are In

You LIKE me! You really LIKE me!! Well, some of you anyway! The Paul Revere award, created by Photoshop Superstar "Curmudgeon" over at Political Clown Parade, is to recognize the efforts of bloggers who aren't (yet) exactly household names.

Our award honors these bloggers because they, like Paul Revere, were not born to wealth.  They are ordinary men and women who are involved citizens keeping their readers informed of events which may touch their lives.

You may have noticed the badge over in the sidebar (we don't need no stinking badges!) that links over the the award and the other 19 recipients. It is simply an ugly rumor that the reason there are no more than 20 recipients is because she ran out of fingers and toes!

We at Proof Positive are grateful for the recognition, and will ever strive to uphold the high standards of this award. Congratulations to one and all recipients of the award this year!

Women of PETA LI

To the delight of some and the chagrin of others, we continue with yet one more tribute to those lovely lasses who would bare their assets to further the cause of PETA.

Because the world needs more naked, nearly naked and vegetable clad vegetarians!

"Using No-fly or Terror Watch List to Bar Gun Sales Still a Bad Idea"

Using no-fly or terror watch list to bar gun sales still a bad idea
-Mike Hashimoto

When well-meaning people get together to thrash out a grave national issue, expect them to circle back to a couple of premises:

First, let’s grab the “low-hanging fruit,” that supposedly simple starting point when apples or apricots are within easy reach.

Second, “It stands to reason …” As in, “It stands to reason that even well-meaning people will attempt to cram each new event into an existing worldview.” Short translation: It’s common sense, if only you had some.

So, guns in America.

Firearms work perfectly into our two premises, at least as seen by those who believe that each new mass shooting, however tragic on its face, is also reason to revisit ideas ranging from ineffective to useless. “Doing nothing is not an option,” unless doing something is worse.

One low fruit is the idea of using government databases like the no-fly list or terrorist watch list to determine who can buy firearms legally. Doesn’t it just stand to reason? Ask President Barack Obama...

We know from reason, human nature and history that the right to defend yourself is a natural instinct that is an extension of the right to self-preservation, which is itself derived from the right to live. Life is the great gift from the Creator, and we have a duty to exercise our freedoms to preserve life until its natural expiration.

Fair and Balanced

In order not to mock the hypocrisy and demagoguery of Democrats in their grandstanding, sit in, fundraising sideshow, and in an attempt to portray this as bi-partisan, Fox News has graciously made John Lewis a Republican...

No comment on how many lemons it is required to suck to look like his companion.

Any Resemblance to Real Democrats...

...is purely coincidental.
