Tex Shelters Salutes The Reagan Library

Reagan with the Mujahideen from globalresearch.ca

Recently, the Republican party held a presidential debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Ca. While the library is a wonderful living tribute to the Patriarch of our party, and many of the exhibits are worthy of this great man, it lacks what us modern conservatives loved most about him.

The Ronald Reagan library is a great place, with a panel from the Berlin Wall that Reagan pulled down, Air Force One and Reagan’s papers and oval office furniture. But it is missing some exhibits that would complete the collection. Here is what real modern Conservatives want to see to complete the Reagan library.

The Tomb of the Unknown Dead Central American Peasant. Reagan doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the deaths of Central American peasants at the hands of right-wing governments and death squads funded by the United States. We need to rectify this.

A special adjunct to the Tomb of the Unknown Dead Central American Peasant would be the Morning in America, nightmare for Nicaragua exhibit including photos of dead nuns and priest who got in the way of U.S. freedom seeking bullets and death squads.

The just say no exhibit of the war on drugs. The war on drugs was one of the greatest wars Reagan fought. The exhibit would feature syringes, cokes spoons, crack pipes, bongs and other drug paraphernalia that we assume millions of people didn’t use because of Reagan’s policies and Nancy Reagan saying “no”. The federal sentencing laws, the death penalty for drug king pins that put marijuana drug growers on death row, the return of minimum sentencing guidelines, and increase in the prison population are all highlights of Reagan’s war on drugs that you would have to be high to miss.

Freedom Fighter Display and Exhibit. Exhibits featuring photos, videos and the written testimony of freedom fighters who fought against the Soviets in Afghanistan, the Mujahideen. A video time line called “Mujahideen over the years” with be played every 30 minutes showing how they transformed themselves in the Taliban and started using the weapons the Reagan White House sold them against the Afghan people, our allies and our soldiers.

Reagan doesn’t get nearly enough credit for arming terrorists organizations in Afghanistan and creating the enormous profits our companies make fighting this U.S. armed fighters. President Reagan’s patriotic actions and active obsession with destroying the already collapsing Soviet Union at whatever costs helped Bin Laden gain power and eventually led to the attacks on 9/11.

We would add quotes that we find important that the Ronald Reagan Library exhibit left out. Of course they feature the famous, “Gorbachev, tear down this wall” and  “It’s morning in America.” And there’s also the advice he gives of a personal nature: “There’s nothing so good for the inside of a man as the outside of a horse.” and “Man’s yearning for freedom can be satisfied in only one way, freedom.”  We need to include more quotes to set the record straight on Reagan’s conservative credentials.

Like global warming deniers of today, Reagan went after the tree hugging hippies logic when he famously stated the hidden facts that, “trees cause more pollution than automobiles.”

President Reagan had a great influence on President George W. Bush and today’s Republican Congress when he said, “They say hard work never hurt anybody, but, I figure, why take the chance?”

And he gave sage advice to all politicians in American when he said, Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.”

So won’t you please spread the knowledge of this great man that the library left out. The world needs to see a complete picture of our greatest president who was a former actor with a chimp and once married to Jane Wyman.

A Battle Royale (with Cheese) over Food Stamps

In Current Events, Economics, Humor on September 7, 2011 at 16:17

Captain Comerica, Tex Shelters, defender of the Free Market Faith versus Libtard T.J., defender of the undeserving, Snodgrass

They meet one fateful day at the President Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA.

Tex Shelters: Come to pay your respect to the greatest president ever, Mr. Snodgrass? What’s a libtard like you doing here?

T.J.: Just here studying the false prophets of the American conservative movement.

Tex Shelters: Slander is the devil’s snare, just like food stamps ensnare the American people with false hope.

T.J.: So, Tex, you’re here to visit the “Death to food stamps exhibit”?

Tex: I know you support giving money to undeserving deadbeats T.J., but food stamps make the poor dependent on the help of others. On her web blog, Texas Sparkle points out that Obama is creating a nation dependent on food stamps. How y’all reconcile that with your messiah complex you have for Obama?

T.J. Snodgrass: People are dependent on food stamps because there are no jobs. And Obama is not my messiah.

Tex: So say y’all. Don’t ya see how if there weren’t no food stamps, companies would up and create jobs? Food stamps dampen the desire for the poor to up and get those jobs. Just ask Glenn Beck. 

T.J.:  And people in the desert can stand up and their desire for water will bring it to them.

Tex: Well, what about the racial issue that you liberals make out of food stamps. People got mad at Glenn Beck for calling Obama the “food stamp president”, called Glenn racist even, but there are more whites on food stamps then blacks.

T.J.: Tex, you ignorant slut.   More white people are on food stamps because there six times more white people in the United States than African Americans. If you look at rates, which apparently you didn’t, there are a higher percentage of blacks that use food stamps than whites. About 90% of all black children use food stamps in their life time.

Tex: We can’t even afford to help white people in the United States and you want to help blacks? Oh, now you’re going to call me racist I suppose. It costs at least $2 a meal for all those lazy people getting food stamps in the United States. You don’t expect me to stop eating my white truffles to pay for someone to eat, do you? Are you asking liberals to give up their lattes so people in America can eat? You disgust me Mr. Snodgrass, hollywood elite liberal bastard!

T.J.: Well, yes, skipping a latte to feed the poor is a good start…

Tex: Did you know that food stamps cost our nation $68 billion dollars a year? We can’t afford to keep feeding people!

T.J.: We can’t afford not to feed our people. The Afghan war costs $190 million a day. That’s 5.7 billion a month. It’s $69.4 billion a year. So if we leave Afghanistan, we can pay for food stamps.

Tex: You can’t cut the Afghan war budget; it costs money to kill people.

T.J.: Okay, how about cutting other areas of the military, such as bases overseas? Let nations defend themselves. And do we really need a submarine fleet any more? New super-submarines cost some $8.3 billion dollars. Aren’t there better ways to spend that money, on food stamps for example? The Sustainable Defense Task Force, consisting of military and budget experts from both parties and independents, has shown that we could cut $1 trillion dollars from the military budget of the United States over 10 years, making that $100 billion a year. Those cuts can certainly sustain the food stamp program during these hard times.

Tex: Fine, so you hate our troops and our sailors, but Liberals like you say that food stamps create jobs. Well, then why don’t we put everyone on food stamps so everyone can have a job.

T.J.: Again, you misrepresent our position. Of course, people having jobs is the best outcome, but giving food stamps is better than other options when investing money and helping the poor. And I don’t want our citizens to needlessly be put in harms way fighting overseas.

How about accepting any of Senator Rockefeller’s suggestions to close tax loopholes and bring back the Clinton era tax rates? That, along with the end of the wars, would make the comparatively small food stamp budget a non-issue.

Tex: Raising taxes is socialist, and it would make cuts to Social Security and Medicaid less urgent. We need there to be a financial crisis and deficit so we can go after aid to the less well off and less deserving. Raising any kind of taxes would get in the way of our plan to eliminate these programs, as would helping the needy.

T.J.: Tex, as a Christian, I would think you would support helping the poor.

Tex: I am only a Christian when I want to be, and in the case food stamps, I don’t want to.

Peace,
Tex Shelters

Who should resign?

In Current Events on June 18, 2011 at 19:26

President Ronald Reagan funneled money to death squads to the Central American nations of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Thousands of peasant farmers, native people, and others were killed in the process. I guess he resigned after that, right?


The already divorced Ronald Reagan also fornicated with Nancy before they were married.

Bush sent troops to fight overseas and die using the lies of weapons of mass destruction being in Iraq. Meanwhile, our troops tortured and killed innocent civilians for little benefit. And thus, President Bush resigned in disgrace, yes sir.

Joseph Lieberman backed John McCain over Barack Obama and he’s still in the good graces of the party. He retained his committee seats, and he wasn’t even censured for fighting against almost every Obama initiative. What, they didn’t think another Democrat could win in Connecticut? He pushed the Iraq War with the same lies Bush used. But the democrats love his support of murder. I least he didn’t send a Tweet of his junk, right?
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ben-cohen/ten-democrats-who-should_b_147167.html And now Lieberman is talking about starting a war in Syria. http://gawker.com/5786515/get-excited-for-joe-liebermans-war-in-syria He should resign over this, right? He did try to usurp the President’s power. Isn’t that treason?

Nancy Pelosi should resign for not going after Bush and Cheney with Impeachment hearings. And Speaker Pelosi didn’t even have to do any of the research. Rep. Kucinich already did it for her. She didn’t want to be divisive and thus didn’t consider impeachment. Yes, she was accommodating the Republicans so she could get along better. Sound like a capitulating sitting President we know of currently in the White House.


In addition, she is no friend of labor. She voted for NAFTA against the concerns of her labor support in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has consistently supported job destroying trade acts. She has also voted yes on every single war appropriations bill. (link) Therefore, she is an accomplice in the murder of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans. So why doesn’t Pelosi resign?


Anthony Weiner sent photos of himself in underwear and had suggestive conversations with staff and others. While inappropriate, no one lost their job or died. In fact, you could argue that Weiner helped the careers of Jon Stewart and others by giving them material because Stewart didn’t have unemployment, wars, the Middle East, Bachmann, or Newt to go after that week. Perhaps Jon Stewart should resign too?

Here’s the score:

Killing Central Americans with illegal wars, fine.

Killing and torturing Iraqis and Afghans based on lies, no big deal.

Voting to authorize the killing of foreigners and war funding even when your constituents are against those war, SOP.

Passing laws that move U.S. jobs overseas, great idea!

Supporting Republicans over your own party and promoting endless wars while usurping the President’s authority, Democrats love that.

But show underwear with an outline of a penis? LWD HO OMG WFT RSGN AW!
So yes, Weiner was the winner.

Peace,
Tex Shelters
