George Wallace would fit right in with the rest of the Peanut Gallery competing in 2016 Presidential Election

Outrageous behavior from unlikely candidates is nothing new in presidential politics. He may seem outrageous, but George Wallace actually won four states in the 1968 General election as an independent candidate. They were all southern states that were motivated by anger and fear. How many voters are motivated for those very same reasons today.

The Gipper Shows How to Engage an opponent with Civility

No matter which presidential candidate you support, all have fallen short when it comes to slinging muck at their opponents. Watch these two videos to see how Ronald Reagan killed em with  kindness. Whether you like his politics or not, you have to admit, the man was a gentleman. All candidates should watch his videos daily to remind themselves how grown-ups act

We have become a society of politically correct wimps

Americans used to be rugged and tough. If somebody challenged you, you took care of business. You fought for what was right and fair. But watching this presidential election has me wondering what in the name of Ronnie Reagan has happened to us. I am by no means a Donald Trump apologist, but he is under attack from every direction. The latest chapter of lunacy comes from Trump's Florida campaign manager being charged with assault for pulling a reporter away from the candidate. Never mind the fact that she pushed her way past the secret service protection, and shouldn't have been that close to Trump in the first place, Pulling her away by the arm is not assault. It was not vicious. It was a manager removing a reporter from a protected area. Under Florida law, it can be Assault for simply touching someone, so technically he can be charged.  The jails would be full if this law was enforced to this degree. The point I want to make is what does a reporter who is covering a volatile campaign think is going to happen when she steps into the a security area after a 45 minute press conference. I give her some credit for being bold and trying to get the story, but don't whine like a child when the inevitable happens. Now that this issue has blown up, other candidates can't condemn Trump quick enough. The real world is rough out there and people need to toughen up. There are much bigger issues than this out there. This is nothing but pettiness, And I hate pettiness.

This is not assault

This is what assault looks like in a political arena

A note from Rick Kelsheimer

I don't want to go out of my way looking for a fight, but there seems to be a lot of loudmouths out there looking for one. As I've grown older, I find myself wanting to be left alone. I don't want to pick up the banner for any causes or push an agenda. But...and there is always a but, I think I have a pretty good idea of what's right and what is wrong. It seems to me there are a lot of people, most of them younger, accusing me of being philosophically somewhere between Archie Bunker and Genghis Khan. To stand up for my Judaeo Christian beliefs have resulted in me being called intolerant and a hater. So far, I have kept my mouth shut and simply smiled when confronted. But I have to admit... I find myself, deep inside, getting stirred up a bit. I don't want to be a bomb thrower, so I will not put my views on Facebook. However, since people have to come looking for this blog site, I will voice my opinion here.

I understand there are a lot of problems in our country, but viciously attacking people who see the world differently is childish. Disagree with me if you want, but to call me profane names will eventually get  an old fart like me... fired up. I want to enjoy life and not get involved in the political arena, but if you keep poking a caged tiger with a stick, eventually, the tiger will growl and possibly enjoy the stick poker as an afternoon snack.

I am feeling a little poked at right now. Better take a pill and go for a walk.
