To tariff or not to tariff?

America’s history with tariffs isn’t of recent vintage; going back just to America’s Civil War, the tariff argument had long been established in American government.

In response to a short article (SOURCE) about an agreement to avert a progressive 5%-%25 tariff on Mexican Trade, I have to address a couple of things here.


America’s history with tariffs isn’t of recent vintage; going back just to America’s Civil War, the tariff argument had long been established in American government.

In reference to the article itself, I find it quite comical when someone on the Left wants to appeal to the Dow Jones in an attempt to degrade Trump.


The Dow Jones consists of 30 companies.

I also love how the article notes

“The Dow dropped 3% the week ending May 31, posting its sixth weekly loss and its longest losing streak since 2011”

What depressing news, right 😉 Hold on!

Where this is disingenuous is that this article is updated to today’s 06/07/2019 date, but look at this partial headline from another article with today’s date

“Dow gains 260 points, posts best week since November”

So they’re giving you bad news over a 6-week loss (As of 1 week ago), but the biggest gain in 7 months isn’t worth mentioning?

More selective outrage and faked news.

Again, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), is a collection of only 30 companies/corporations.

All things considered; especially in light of a low of 10.700 the night before Christmas 2018, a 2,000 point gain since then isn’t exactly a sign of a slowing or weakening economy………….even if we are going to base this on 30 Corporations

Daily/Weekly/Monthly freak-out sessions of our Stock Markets is simply the best way to feed panics.

Frankly, I’m not overly concerned about the financial well-being of companies such as Cocoa-Cola, Walmart, Disney, Goldman-Sacks, or Walgreens Boots Alliance; and I certainly don’t see how these 30 companies are any kind of indicator or barometer of Trump, in any way.

Shouldn’t those on the Left be celebrating when such evil Capitalist entities are taking financial hits in the markets?

Trump wins again, and it’s killing those on the Left, but don’t expect any significant reduction in reported numbers of illegals.

This is merely one more stage in the game.

The Cannabis Genie

Big Industry (And Racism) is what got this plant criminalized, and Big Industry is in an all-out panic now that Industrial Hemp has been removed from the Fed’s blockade.

Hemp (Left) / Marijuana (Right)

Industrial Hemp is not Marijuana, so set that aside for a moment.

Also, set aside any/all medicinal claims/benefits, just for a moment.

Marijuana’s “High” is from high levels of THC.

Hemp and Marijuana are two strains of the Cannabis plant.

Industrial Hemp is largely a simple agricultural product; providing mankind with items such as Building materials, Rope, Linens/Fabrics, Paper products, Bio-degradable Plastics, Cosmetics/Body Care, Animal Feed/Bedding, Fuels/Oils, and Food/Nutrition.

A primary product of Industrial Hemp is its massive seed production: these seeds house our most essential amino acids, in addition to providing us with some of the longest burning oil known to man.

The cannabis plant (Both Hemp and Marijuana) contains a chemical compound known as Phyto- (Plant-Based) Cannabinoids (CBD) and it is from this chemical, where accepted science is beginning to admit to its human-health, healing and/or curative properties.

Hemp has extremely low levels of THC so it won’t get you high; whereas Marijuana is specifically cultivated for its THC content, though it has a nearly identical Cannabinoid (CBD) value as well.

Our human body has its own Endocannabinoid System and the Cannabinoids cultivated from these two plants attach themselves to cannabinoid receptors and provide a plethora of benefits to the human body.

Though the human body does produce some of these cannabinoids, the phyto-cannabinoids from hemp and marijuana are extremely important additions all should consider.

Cannabis (Hemp and Marijuana) is the single greatest productive agricultural product on earth.

America should have millions of acres of Hemp growing.


To our health?


One article notes: (Source – www.themcaa.net)


“Cannabis/Hemp is not unique in having all the essential amino acids in its embryonic seed. Flax seeds also contain all the essential amino acids as do many other seeds in the plant kingdom. What is unique about hemp seed protein is that 65% of it is globulin edistin. That is the highest in the plant kingdom.


Globulins are one of seven classes of simple proteins. Simple proteins are constructed from amino acids and contain no non-protein substances. Globulins are in seeds and animal blood. Edistins are found in seeds; serum globulin is in blood. Edistins are plant globulins. And globulins along with albumins are classified as globular proteins. All enzymes, antibodies, many hormones, hemoglobin and fibrogin (the body converts fibrogin into non-soluble, fibrin, a blood clotting agent) are globular proteins. They carry out the main work of living”


Big Industry (And Racism) is what got this plant criminalized, and Big Industry is in an all-out panic now that Industrial Hemp has been removed from the Fed’s blockade.


Lobbyists are hammering politicians over this.


The history’s been proven about this plant’s efficacy on mankind.


It’s time to drop the demon-complex attached to it.


For the production of simple paper, which requires wood pulp:


Consider an acre of trees, aged 7 years = 1 crop-harvest for wood pulp.


That same acre with Industrial Hemp could produce 2-4 harvests per year (depending on location, climate, etc…).


Average 3 crop-harvests per year x 7 years = 21 harvests of Cannabis, versus 1 harvest of wood pulp trees, over the same time frame, on one acre of land.


That’s not only a lot of product, but it’s a tremendous profit for the numerous businesses that Cannabis will fuel.


Trust that the government will be watching this new growth of Industrial Hemp, with a fine-toothed comb………and there will always be regulation, but you watch this industry explode in the next 3-5 years.


There is a lot of hesitancy on lawmakers, in allowing this to move forward, unimpeded.

Considering all the businesses that Hemp can (and will) dominate, Lobbyists are throwing money at politicians and law enforcement, in hopes of reigning in the level and speed of growth, if nothing else.

I believe the Genie is out of the Bottle, and only Federal regulation will put it back in that bottle……………………………and I have every expectation they will, again.


To the end that Recreational Marijuana is likewise being legalized all over the country, 11 states; such as Colorado, California, and Alaska have found out, there are literally billions of tax dollars at stake, and that is per state.


While I fully believe both strains of this plant do offer mankind tremendous healing and/or curative properties, that’s for additional articles.

Conception-Abortion?

According to the Left; as I’m neither a female nor a medical professional, I’m not supposed to be able to voice an opinion on this subject, but as I don’t care what anyone on the Left thinks of me, my opinions, or my knowledge, I will speak.

In matters of abortion, I am a firm believer that 98% of them are for mere convenience so the mother doesn’t have to deal with the consequences of unprotected sex.

I likewise firmly believe this 98% to be simple and cold-blooded murder.

To this end, we always hear about “rape”, “incest” and/or “Endangering the life of the mother” as the primary battle cries from our pro-choice (murdering) counterparts on the Left.

With the flood of Anti-Abortion laws taking place across the country, we notice that most allow no exception for rape and incest.

This is sheer wisdom on the parts of the various lawmakers in their respective states.

Reliable abortion statistics will always show these extenuating circumstances account for less than 2% of all included abortions.

Remember that the Left always objectifies the minority; whether that be a minority issue, minority segment of society or a minority of factual evidence and truth.

As abortion statistics currently accept that the exceptions such as rape, incest, or endangering the life of the mother are a totality of less than 1% each, what do you suppose would happen to those same exceptions being claimed as a majority reason for abortions, if and/or where such exceptions are included in such legislation?

I’m betting that in less than 5 years, rape and incest percentages are going to sky-rocket in being reported as the reason(s) for abortion.

Recently, the line of “Endangering the life of the mother” is being altered in literature, the medical world, politics and among the masses, to “Endangering the life and/or Health of the mother”.

This language was introduced to political, legal and medical jargon to provide for greater leeway in allowing abortion where such pregnancy is not from rape or incest and does not actually endanger the LIFE of the mother, but “could” harm her “psychologically”…………………..and this allows for 10,000 excuses to be launched as legitimate reasons; all of which should have been considered before having unprotected sex.

Many years back, I remember the huge controversy over the “Morning after pill”; I myself was against the notion until I did a little more research.

According to the Left; as I’m neither a female nor a medical professional, I’m not supposed to be able to voice an opinion on this subject, but as I don’t care what anyone on the Left thinks of me, my opinions, or my knowledge, I will speak.

For the record, I’m not referring to the RU-486 pill; this is an abortion-causing pill, but I’m referring to something known as Levonorgestrel, and there is a plethora of different versions, brands, strengths, makers, etc…

Levonorgestrel is not to be confused with or used as a female’s normal birth control.

One version sold is known as Plan B One-Step; and if taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex, it boasts a 95% success rate at preventing pregnancy from occurring.

This brings us to this fine-line argumentation of when “conception” takes place.

Though the single-sperm that wins the day and can fertilize the egg within 24 hours, the journey to the womb (uterus) can take 3-4 days. Tubal/Ectopic pregnancies; though rare, do occur. These can absolutely endanger the biological health and life of the mother.

Though I do believe the Government needs to get its nose out of the relationships between healthcare workers and their clients/customers/patients: especially in cases of rape and incest, the female involved should be in contact with a Doctor and should be provided with this preventative measure.

You can go to a Wal-Mart or just about any Drug-Store and get this for $10-$50.

You can even order it online (As a Back-up)

There are always exceptions/complications to a rule:

But little Janie was molested by her brother, uncle, father, etc and doesn’t want to tell. This is far from being just an episode of unprotected sex

But not all females know about this product…

Not everybody has $10-$50 when they need it…

But little Tammy lives 10 miles from town, and she’s only 14 years old…

and on and on and on and on.

These exceptions to a rule are why many things don’t get solved/fixed, because people are too busy arguing over and breaking everything down into every minute and/or possible example, category, reason, excuse, etc…

As with most things on the political Left, it is these exceptions (Minorities) that are used as bull-whips to beat everyone else into compliance and/or submission.

While I do believe each life is precious; if the process is interrupted prior to the fertilized egg reaching the womb (uterus), the pregnancy is not viable.

I’d love it if all of us (Male and Female) engaged in responsible sex.

I’d love it if none of our children (Male and Female) ever had to experience incest.

I’d love it if we lived in a world where people (Male and Female) didn’t resort to raping each other.

In a world of true reality, rape and incest happen; and while I do believe aborting after the fertilized egg has reached the womb, is murder, I see just a shade of grey in certain cases of rape and incest, and am at least thankful that we have some tools true victims can take advantage of, if they act quickly enough.

I haven’t even touched on the “Selling baby parts” part of the abortion industry, but I believe abortion should not be a profitable enterprise; and absolutely should not be funded by tax-dollars funneled through the government.
