False Implications

A false implication is another way to say lie or falsehood. It is when a person uses an implication to say that which they know is not exactly true. The democrats have turned it into an art form.

One implication was that they would have never have blocked a vote by a republican president in his last year of office. I’m not gullible enough to swallow that one. Are you? The truth is that, if the situation were reversed they would have done exactly the same thing.

The other implication is that “We the democrats would never appoint and confirm a justice this close to an election.” You believe that one and I have a bridge I’d like to sell you. They believe in doing or saying anything to protect there right to “Choice.”

The truth is that the democrats would have done the same in both situations. There would be one difference. The media would be right there cheering them on. Instead, the media cry out,”Unfair! Unfair!”

I’ll tell you what is unfair, making my wife and me pay those ridiculous insurance prices that Obama Care forced on us. I’ll tell you what unfair is, recalling all our troupes from Iraq exposing over a million people to slaughter.

And by the way, it is also unfair to spy on an incoming president without cause. Truth about that, that’s not just unfair, that is illegal. Whole bunch of democrats ought to go to jail over that, but they never will. You see some people are above the law. All they need is the news media, a bunch of money and a whole lot of conspirators.

Abortion on Demand

Boy, have I gotten an education. I used to think that elections are about this. I used to think elections are about that. Now I know better. You listen to those dummycrats and they will school you too.

It is all about abortion. Not only that, they want abortion all the way up to the point of delivery and a tad beyond. And, oh, yes. They want you and I to pay for it, no matter how detestable we find it. In fact, they especially like to have Christians pay for it.

Sorry. I don’t understand it. No matter how you coat it, it’s wrong. It is murder. The fact that they are taking an innocent life is just an inconvenient fact that they don’t want to face. It is the number one consideration for them, even for some people who call themselves Christian.

If I try to speak to someone on the subject they either yell or put their fingers in their ears. They don’t want to hear about it. As it says in the first chapter of John, when they see the Light they prefer the dark. When they hear the truth, they prefer the lie. It is more convenient.

Appointment of a new Justice

Over and over, I hear the question as to why the republicans should immediately appoint a new justice.

The answer is simple. The democrats would do it in a heartbeat and without any apologies. Wasn’t it Obama that said, “Elections have consequences?”

And by the way, wasn’t it Obama that tried to replace a justice right before he left office? And by the way, this was while the Senate had a republican majority. Obama had the right to try to appoint a justice and the Senate had the right to say no. It is sort of the way things work… it is sort of the way it says to do it in the constitution.

Now we have a legally elected republican president and a legally elected Senate. Appointing and confirming a new justice is not only legal, it is right. Maybe next time we have democrat president, he…or she will not be so flippant.

Compromise, Maybe?

The democrats like to use the word compromise, as long as they come out on the winning end of it.

Well, maybe I can suggest a compromise. The democrats want to dump ballots out of low-flying aircraft. The Republicans want to appoint a justice right away.

So this is the compromise. The democrats agree, no mail out ballots and the president will wait until after the inauguration to appoint another justice. That has two benefits. We have a proper and fair election and, in the event that there are problems, the current 8 justices can help make sure it is settled properly, in spite of the lawyers.

Somehow, I don’t think the democrats will accept the terms but I may be wrong. If they feel they will win the election fair and square, they might go for it. At this point, though, with Bidden as their champion, I suspect they have their doubts of being able to make it through the first debate.

They want the mail out ballots, not so much to beat Trump, though they would love that. Their purpose is to keep the House and flip Senate. To do that, they know they will need some good old fashioned cheating. They know they will need the votes of a few dead men and a few illegal aliens.

What is it they always like to use in those detective shows? Modus Operandi, also known by us non-lawyers as a method of doing things. Well, it is the way democrats do things, ever since they found out it works.

The Dark

One day, I was walking through our offices at work and someone turned the lights out. A woman, joking, said, “Don’t do that. I’m afraid of the dark.”

I quipped back, “No need to fear the dark. It won’t hurt you. It’s all those terrible monsters that lurk in the dark that should concern you.”

Indignantly, she called back, “Same thing.”

Maybe she had a point. Nonetheless, in the days before electricity man had to spend a lot of time in the dark. Before fire, of course, it was even worse. Can you imagine spending roughly half of each day in the dark? It sort of makes a person appreciate a full moon.

It is no wonder that the Bible uses the dark many times in metaphors. In Psalms 119:105, it says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” KJV The psalmist is saying that God’s Word allows us to see things that the dark hides from us.

The world would like to keep us in the dark. God would like to bring light to us, which allows us to make our decisions in, so to speak, a better light. God wants us to be aware of the monsters that lurk in the dark. Moreover, he wants to guide our footsteps so that we don’t stumble. Then, of course, when we do stumble, he picks us up and puts us back on our feet.

Whenever I read the verse, I wonder just why a person would reject the light of the living God and prefer to stumble through the darkness. It boggles my mind. Yet, guess what, I do it daily. Every time I sin it is because I ignore the light and prefer the darkness. I don’t understand that.

However, the scriptures speak of another Light. In the first chapter of John, the Bible calls the Light the “Word.” If you take the time to read the fist two chapters of John, you will see that he is speaking of Jesus, both as the Word and as the Light. To be sure, He is both. He allows us to see things that the dark (Satan, the evil one) would like to hide from us.

Since my early 20’s, I have learned to totally enjoy the first three chapters of John. First, I learned to like the first chapter. Later, I learned that all three of the first chapters are very important to know Jesus, Who He is, and what He did for us. I have read the whole Bible at least 8 times but I have read these chapters more times than I can count. Yet, it seems that each time I learn a little more.

You see, one of the really important things the Bible does for us is to give us light. Without it, we would all be in the dark. We all know what that means, but not nearly as well as those who had to rely on fire for their light. Next time you want to understand dark, go in a room and pull all the curtains. Then, turn out the lights. You see, dark is what happens when there is no light. Evil is what happens without the Word of God.

In the past 5 or 6 decades, people have been trying to remove God from our society. So. It is basic logic. Remove the Light and only the dark remains. And, one thing I have learned over the years from experience, evil loves the dark.

Communism hates the light. Communists hate Jesus… and the Bible.

Schools and Money

About twenty or so years ago, I had the occasion to be driving through the countryside of Pennsylvanian with a friend. We noticed a huge dome somewhat off the the road and we decided to check it out.

It is the first time either of us was exposed to the Milton Hershey School. They have an extensive exhibit there under the dome. It was founded by the man that started Hershey candies. For those unfamiliar with it, it would do you well to look it up on the web, thought a personal visit would be better.

Every year, hundreds, if not thousands of kids attend the school and they don’t pay one penny in tuition. To the contrary. The school provides food, clothing, and even toys for the students. They have some of the best, most driven teachers and the students frequently go on to good colleges and make very good grades.

As a side note, one thing I did pick up off the web is that the students are 30% Black. That more than doubles their makeup of the US population of 13%.

It is ironic, you can’t buy a better K-12 education anywhere in the world for any price and this kids go there for free.

Things might have changed since I saw the exhibit. However at the time, a child had to have three requirements to get in. They had to be missing at least one parent. They could not have any history of being a troublemaker. Finally, they had have a recommendation, such as clergy or other similar person. I’m sure, if push came to shove there was likely some leeway on the recommendation.

Well, there is one other limit. They could only accept so many students a year.

Now, why should I bring up this subject right now. Well, I heard that Bloomberg just sent 100 million dollars to Florida to help defeat President Trump. Now I word it that way on purpose. I doubt that he is really for Biden. He just does not want to see the president re-elected.

I have my suspicions why. I don’t really want to go into that here. I do want to suggest that he could find many better ways for him to spend his money. If President Trump wins the election, he just dumped 100 million down a big bottomless pit. It will do him no good, or anyone else for that matter.

Well, it will make some advertisers happy.

If Bidden wins, he will learn a little about experience. He will learn what it is like to put the controllers in office. Then, all his billions will do him little or no good. When the communists take over, the rich are their first targets. They will take his money and throw him in prison. They will do it for the good of the state.

Now on the other hand, he just might put some disadvantaged children, especially black children into good private schools. It would cost him about 8,000 per student and he would actually accomplish something with the money. He could put over 1000 kids completely through school which would lift them from poverty.

If he could could talk nine of his billionaire friends to each pony up one-hundred million, that would be 10 thousand kids. Not only would they get a far better education, but all the other kids would get a slightly better education. The money in the public schools wouldn’t need to be divided up as much.

But, alas, let us remember his goal. It is not the good of the kids but rather to destroy President Trump. It is certain that history will never compare him and Hershey on the same page, or for that matter, in the same chapter.

By the way. Bloomberg lives in New York. What is he doing in Florida politics. I know they do it all the time. It doesn’t make it right. I hate it when people come into Mississippi with their money and try to get me to vote the way they want me to vote. None of their business how we vote.

There is legal and there is right. The two are not necessarily the same.

Lawyers!

It would seem the democrats already know they are going to lose this election, even with all their extra ballots. I say this because they seem to have all their lawyers getting ready to beg, barrow and steal every vote they need. (and maybe a few more)

It is why it is not enough to just beat them. It must be an overwhelming victory, one they will not be able to deny.

Can’t remember who said it or the exact wording… “He who counts the ballots wins the election.” I am sure the democrats have taken the saying to heart. They don’t care if it is dishonest. Since when did a little dishonesty get in their way. Everyone knows that Kennedy would have never been president had the dead not voted for him.

It is joked about to this day but it set a precedent that they learned from and follow to this day. Remember the hanging chads. Did not Mrs. Clinton tell Bidden not to concede, no matter what. Her implication was that the republicans were dishonest but but it was also a battle-cry to pull out all the stops, no matter how wrong it may be.

Remember. To them, it is all about control. Many of the democrats would be terrified of losing control of the land for four more years. They certainly do not want the control getting back into the hands of the people, the way that the current president wants it.

Azusa

When I was six, I watched the Jack Benny Show. It was the first time I watched the skit that depicted a train station. Over the public address system, I heard “Train now leaving on track five to Azusa, Anaheim and Cucamunga. The announcer repeated it and both times pronounced cucamunga with deliberate time between each syllable.

At the time, I never had heard of any of those places. Since then, I found that the show writers chose the locations, all real, because of their funny sounding names. It might also be noted that a train leaving Los Angeles might actually go through all three of those cities, though I have no idea if one ever did. All three cities roughly lie on the path east out of L.A.

Nowadays, we all know of Anaheim as the home of that wonderful place known as Disneyland. Though the city has grown with dozens of major industries there, mostly, it is still known as the home of Disneyland.

When we first moved to the area, it was all orange groves. Occasionally, we drove by the place and noted the progress. My father was a carpenter and actually helped to build the place.

It was many years later when I realized where Azusa was. Occasionally, I heard the name on TV or radio, but I had no idea where it was. As a young adult, I had many occasions to drive around and through Azusa. I have no idea where it got its name, but it really is a nice city, which is nestled right at the base of some pretty ausum mountains. California route 39 goes right through it on its way to the beautiful San Gabriel Canyon.

I say beautiful, because it was. It would appear no more. I heard of the fire there and I saw photos of that area. It wretched my heart. I know what it is going to look like when the fire is done with it, or at least I think I do. Sometimes things like that can be even worse than can be imagined.

I have gone up that highway to where it meets Angeles Crest Highway. I understand they don’t meet anymore. That is a shame too.

I’m sure that, eventually, the forests will grow back. I’m equally sure it will never quite be the same. Fires have a tendency to scar things forever.

I just want to say to those fine people of Azusa, I feel for you, I really do, even from 1800 miles away.

I can think of half a dozen things to add, politically. But tonight, I think I will leave the politics out. It is time to grieve, especially if anyone was hurt or killed. I would only hope that others would also show proper respect.

Energy (Oil)

For a nation to be strong, it all starts with oil, coal and natural gas. We need steel, we need aluminum and we need food, but it all starts with energy. We need the energy to make steel. We need energy by the megawatt to make aluminum. We need energy to extract it all from the earth and we need energy to make the raw products, which we turn into cars, tractors, trucks and a list far too long for me to mention.

You remove the energy from us and our country will go back into the stone ages so fast it would make your head spin.

By the way, we need the oil in three ways for farming. We need it for the fertilizer, for the pesticides and for the operation of farm equipment. If the tractors remain silent, we won’t eat. Those of us who are able, might grow a little in our backyards but not nearly enough. Besides, the plants need water. Actually, so do we. Without fuel, the water pumps won’t work. We might haul it up from the lakes and rivers, but we would have to do that by real horse power the type that eats hay.

But that’s not the half of it. There will be no way to remove the trash and garbage, especially from heavily populated urban areas. Disease would run rampant in weeks, if not sooner.

and, guess what. The dummycrats want us to wean ourselves off oil in a couple of decades. They want us to rid ourselves of it all. It is dumb. Guess what? Our farms not only feed our people here in the US but we feed people all over the world. If the democrats have their way, the folks in other countries will starve too. They will wonder why the largest producers of food in the world aren’t sending them any food. We will have to tell them. Sorry. The dummycrats don’t want us to produce carbon dioxide.

Maybe those dummycrats would like to explain to the children of our nation why we have no more potatoes. Those Black lives who matter. They will die without food.

But they don’t care. They don’t care about any lives, least of all Black lives. Their whole purpose is control. They want to win those elections and they will tell us anything to that goal. The truth is, Obama killed thousands by withdrawing the troops from Iraq early. Ask him if he lost one night of sleep over it. The governor of New York directly caused the death of 11,000 people as a result of the virus. Ask him if he cares.

I don’t know. I lack the research ability, but I would guess at least 1100 of those people who died in those nursing homes were Black, African-Americans. It bothers me more than I can tell and I had nothing to do with it. Had I known and were able, I would have done all I could to prevent it. I don’t think it bothers him one little bit. I sense not one little bit of remorse.

By the way, the government of New York will not let people use fracking to produce oil inside New York. You can easily tell where their interest lie.

As I said, it all starts with energy. Without it, the US becomes another third world country. It is exactly what the dummycrats want. Then they can rule and they can fly around in their planes and drive around in their limos while the rest of us make do.

Unless this is what you want, vote republican and tell your friends to do the same. If you don’t, then after the election, it will be too late. No one will be able to do anything then. and then you will experience first hand what I am saying.

What type of energy will people use then. They will have to burn wood just to stay warm. Do you have any idea how much CO2 and smog wood causes? At least we won’t need to concern ourselves with forest fires. There will be no forests. People will burn the wood to stay warm, those who can. The rest will simply freeze.

Smog in the Los Angeles valley didn’t start with cars but the burning of wood long before white man arrived on the scene.

A Word About Words

One day I picked up my son from somewhere. I can’t even remember where. Somehow, the subject came around to Smokey the Bear. He corrected me. He said it is now Smokey Bear. It seems someone somewhere decided to change the poor guy’s name and no one even consulted him.

Regardless, Smokey Bear is now his official name. Sorry, I refuse to make the change. The new name doesn’t fit the song. I guess not too many people remember the song. We learned it in school and they encouraged us to be careful with fire. They insisted on fire being nothing to play with.

Now the name is Smokey Bear. They don’t sing the song and I hardly ever see him on TV as I used to. I wonder who decided on that.

When I was in high school, we used the term, employee. Now it is worker. Wonder who made that decision. I never thought of myself as a worker. I considered myself an employee, a man who they payed to work.

Over the years there have been dozens of changes to our vocabulary. So you ask what’s the big difference? Well, if there is no difference, why change it? What purpose is there to it? If I use the old words, why do people look at me as if I have broken the proverbial cardinal rule.

When I use Smokey the Bear in a crowd, two or three people correct me. You try it. You will see what I mean. It is getting to be the same way with the word employee. I have no idea why anyone would get upset with either word but they do.

May I suggest it is part of a conspiracy. Oh, there I go on that conspiracy thing again. Okay. If it isn’t a conspiracy, what is it. Tell me. Why did we change employee to worker. Is it because it is easier to say or spell. More likely it is because it has a slight change in meaning. A worker is not really quite the same as an employee. Smokey Bear is not really quite the same as Smokey the Bear.

More than that, it is control. They are saying, “See what I did. I have changed your vocabulary and there is nothing you can do about it.” Nowadays, it is the little words. Eventually, they will start changing other words in far more meaningful ways.

You see, once they can change the meaning of words, they can start controlling what we think. Guess what. It works. Look at what they are now turning out of our colleges. Look at how they can twist words, in some cases to mean the opposite of what they used to.

Today, it is not a lie unless it impedes progress, as they see it. The indoctrination has become so strong that some people use it to pass lie detector test. I mean, if it is not a lie, why should I feel guilty. Hence the machine records no reaction.

So, nowadays, the democrats, straight-faced look at us and lie. They convince us of it because they, themselves are convinced of it.

Fifty years ago, abortion was regarded as killing. Now, it is just abortion. Some even call it birth control. It is all a matter of vocabulary. Yet the truth is, two healthy people go into an abortion clinic; only one comes out alive.

The mere choice of the word clinic is a bad choice of words. Just what do you call a place where innocent children are killed. I don’t know, but it is certainly not a clinic. A clinic is somewhere where people go to get well. It is a place to be treated for illness. Pregnancy is not an illness. Abortion is not a procedure. Let’s call it what it really is, murder. People use the euphemism so that they can feel better, but the little change in vocabulary does not change the reality.

Just a little aside about Planned Parenthood. It was started by a woman, Margret Sanger, who wanted to rid the world of African-Americans, only she didn’t call them African-Americans. Here’s the news, it is still the primary mission of their so-called clinics. 80% of the clinics are in Black neighborhoods. And you think the democrats have your well-being in mind. They support Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood, wants to extinguish Blacks. Hence, I can only assume the democrats want to extinguish Blacks.

If there is a hole in my logic, please tell me. Just why is it that they hide behind the euphemisms? Why do they put so many clinics in Black neighborhoods? Why do they want to keep the African-American population in the least successful schools?

I can’t think of another reason. Can you?

President Trump is trying to put, at least some African-Americans in good schools. And they call him prejudice. The democrats want to keep African-American out of the good schools. And they say they are fighting for them.

Prejudices or not, wouldn’t it be a good idea to elect the one trying to put the Black kids in the best schools?
