The Donald Keeps Leading The Pack

donaldYou can love him, you can hate him, you can call him all sorts of names.  But, Donald Trump is still leading the pack with 26% to Jeb’s 20%.

The other Republicans aren’t even close right now.  And, it’s unlikely that will change anytime soon.  Why?

For one thing, Donald knows who his audience is and he’s speaking to them.  He’s speaking to Republicans who vote.  And, they vote hard.  If the United States was in the middle of a hurricane, winds blowing–tree limbs snapping –  Republicans would be out dodging electrical wires to get to the polls.

Democrats, on the other hand, would be sitting at home watching it on MSNBC.

It’s laughable, but it’s true.  Democrats find reasons not to vote on election day while Republicans are more likely to pull the plugs from the ICU beds and crawl to their polling place – with ID in hand.

But, above all else, people – all people not just Republicans – are tired of the same old politicians saying the same things and getting absolutely nothing done.  It’s unlikely Donald Trump could actually build a wall around the southern U.S. and get Mexico to pay for it, but by God – you want that wall – you need that wall!

Trump is saying the things that ring true to many Americans even if they don’t have the facts to back it up.  China is out performing us, and we Americans think the rest of the world see us as a  laughing stock.

They like Trump because in their hearts they want American to be great again.  They want to build big things and shoot to the moon like we did in the 60s.  They want a president that cheers us on with great speeches that give us goosebumps.

We haven’t had that in a long time.  Whether or not Trump can actually win or whether he has the political acumen to be president is another story.  But, the Republican voters at least like the fact Donald’s cheering.

Tata’s out of the DOT – so what’s the deal? Jones, Trump, Ellmers and Taylor Griffin

The NC 03?

Currently held by the long time and old Republican Walter Jones.  He’s unliked by both the RNC and the DNC.  He votes like a schizophrenic terrier – you never know where he’ll land on an issue.

Jones’ challenger in the Primary will be Taylor Griffin.  Griffin came within inches of unseating Jones in the Primary in 2014.  Griffin announced a few weeks ago and I wish him luck and support. He has an impressive political resume having interned for Jesse Helms and working at the Treasury Department with an emphasis on international monetary policy.  

Tata made some moves and actually thought about running in the NC 03.  I doubt that will happen now that Griffin has thrown his hat into the ring.  But, Tata has a big ego – so, you never know what he may do.

Speaking of Tata’s ego – he’s going to work for Donald Trump as a policy consultant.  No doubt Trump needs a retired general as he tries to back away from his McCain blunder.

But, Tata will not be his man for long.  The two together are too bullheaded and Donald is going to say what he wants the way he wants to say it.

It might would be more logical if Tata went up against Renee Ellmers.  The local Tea Party has been trying to unseat her since she voted for the debt ceiling years ago.  Rumor has it the Tea Party was eying Jim Womack to run against her.  Womack was appointed by McCrory to run the Energy and Mining Commission.  That’s the committee that will control fracking and the regulation that goes along with it.

Womack’s brother is a congressman from Arkansas and a local Tea Party favorite there.  But, Renee isn’t as vulnerable as she used to be.  She’s weathered some big storms both at home and inside the Beltway.  And, Tony Tata is, well let’s face it,  he’s out there.

It’s time to help out a friend – an underdog who has been a the victim of a billion dollar corporation

heather Regardless of your position on what this woman writes, I’m supporting her efforts to write one last book that can help many independent writers, save them money and time plus shed some light on a corporate structure who efforts have impaired median income indie writers. 

Please join me and supporting this effort and what she considers her last book on Amazon

. Like this Facebook page and please subscribe to this blog: link here. Remember the Duke University student who paid her way through college by staring in porn videos?  Although this isn’t the woman I’m speaking about, it is in the same vein.

A Facebook friend picked up on one of my post about a year ago and asked for my help.  She knew I ghost wrote for some local politicians and wanted some feedback on some short stories she was writing.

The project interested me because we all need part-time jobs in this economy to make ends meet.  And, from time to time putting food on the table is challenging. I asked her to send me a few samples and she was embarrassed to tell me she was writing erotica and selling it under a pen name on Amazon. If nothing else, that piqued me interest because I’ve penned self-help (mostly political) for the past two years with moderate success.

I understood the buzz works and the Amazon payout – those things she didn’t have to explain. I also know many authors on Facebook who write historical fiction, romance and SciFi.

I’ve even dabbled at writing motivational and success books in my spare time. I was taken by her candor and offered some pointers that I thought would be helpful. Long story short, she messaged me a few days ago and asked me to take a look at her new WordPress blog.  She said she was probably getting out of the writing business and will try to find a part-time job to go along with her full-time job to make ends meet. I am more activist at heart than anything else.

And, contrary to some of my Facebook friends I have a heart of goal.  After mulling it over for a day and a half, I will help her and help her promote and market what she considers her last book. She wants to tell the story of how Amazon treats independent authors in light of their new pay scale called KU 2.0.

KU is sort for Kindle Unlimited, a feature Amazon promotes for $9.99 a month and granting access to all sorts of free books. I’m a member of KU and I’ve read some very good books albeit mostly short reads relating to politics and political candidates. And, secondly – I don’t see anything wrong with writing erotica or erotic romance fiction considering Amazon is the worlds biggest seller of adult products such as dildos and flesh lights – gadgets that are designed for masturbation.

I’ll be posting some of her work on my blog and I’ll be re-blogging some of her post to help her get her message out. If for no other reason, I’m sick to death of corporations taking advantage of little guys who do not have the resources to fight back. Please join me in following this Facebook page and this blog.

If Amazon can do this to independent authors they or other corporations can do it to anyone else.   Maybe it’s time to fight back one issue at a time. Blog Facebook Page

Why The Hate From Some Trans People Over Janice Covington Allison?

2_thumb.jpgI’ve read more than enough backlash from the Trans community about Janice Covington Allison.  My question is why the hate?

Due to the work that Janice Covington Allison has  accomplished, Transgender people can now use the bathrooms, at, any Charlotte City and Mecklenburg County owned property.

Charlotte Douglas Airport, City and County Parks, Time Warner Stadium, Bojangles Stadium, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Carolina Panthers Bank America Stadium and BB&T Stadium Charlotte Knights Baseball and she is working on more.

She was also the first Transgender Delegate in the History of North Carolina to be elected to the Democratic National Convention, the first transgender woman to be a member of the North Carolina Democratic Woman’s Association, the first transgender woman to be elected as a sitting member of the North Carolina Democratic Party State Executive Committee.

She is also the North Carolina Democratic State Party Chair of Diversity and Outreach. Janice also introduced and had passed by vote the term Gender Identity, added to the Preamble of the State Democratic Party. She has received the Harvey Milk Award and the Rosa Parks Award.  

So, to those who think Janice does not do any work for the Trans Community they are wrong. Also people claim she is a narcissist or a person who likes the center of attention on the contrary. She is sought after by the press because she does more than sit home on the computer.  Make no mistake about it: haters gonna hate – no matter what.

Note – several articles are coming out this week on Allison’s activism and her efforts to clarify bathroom issues within government facilities and corporate entities.

Judicial Watch Claims IRS Scandle Went Even Deeper After 501(c)4 Tea Party Groups

More from Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that confirm that the IRS used donor lists to tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits.  The documents also show IRS officials specifically highlighted how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may come under “high scrutiny” from the IRS.  The IRS produced the records in a Freedom of Information lawsuit seeking documents about selection of individuals for audit-based application information on donor lists submitted by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).

“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “And the snarky comments about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the obsession with Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS show that the IRS was targeting critics of the Obama administration.  President Obama may want to continue to lie about his IRS scandal.  These documents tell the truth – his IRS hated conservatives and was willing to illegally tax and audit citizens to shut down opposition to Barack Obama’s policies and reelection.”
