Public Schools

When our forefathers set up our government, they did a wonderful job.  There are a few suggestions I have for a change to the constitution, but by and large, they did a much better job than I ever would.  It would stand to reason they had a good look at what they didn’t want.

Unfortunately, I do believe they overlooked one major thing.  I can understand it.  It could not have been foreseen in the day.  The hitch is that now it is very likely too late.  It would seem that the federal government has crept into our education system.

They gave us the first amendment to keep the government out of publishing papers.  However, when the government controls what is taught in our schools and colleges, it really amounts to the same thing.  Our education system is horrible at teaching as compared to most developed nations.  On the other hand, it is very good at indoctrinating.  Worse yet, they are bound and determined to prevent private schools wherever possible.

The instant that anyone brings up the possibility of a penny going to a private school, it is about the same sound as when I accidentally step on my dog’s tail.  They don’t even want any money paid toward such private schools being tax deductible.  As such, people who do send their children to private schools end up paying twice.

Certainly, there are two reasons they don’t want private schools to thrive.  Already, statistics show that kids who go to private schools, or those that are homeschooled, do so much far better.  Their academic measures are better in every way.  Also, they are generally better citizens.

To add to the indictment of the public schools, the private schools provide the better education at about half the costs.  Certainly, the NEA does not want that getting around.

If students that normally do poorly were to be put into private schools and they suddenly started doing well, it would really give the public schools a black eye.  They certainly would not want that.

Worse yet, they would never get a chance to indoctrinate any student permitted to go to private school.  It would take them out of the reach of the NEA and the government.  Now you know why the government wants your children in their schools.  And woe to the parent who complains about them being indoctrinated.  And woe to anyone who complains about the public system.

 

Coverup, Really

Pelosi said that President Trump is covering something up, though she would be hard-pressed to determine what it is he is covering up.  I mean after two years and four investigations, no one has found anything for him to cover up.

This is not just dumb but willful stupidity.  Not only is it not the truth but she knows that it isn’t true.  That makes her a liar as well as dumb.  Then too, she expects us to believe it.  Now that is really dumb.

Then, of all things, after she verbally assaults President Trump, she expects him to work with her as if she said nothing.  That means she’s not just dumb but also has a lot of audacity.

A Little Question

Former President Clinton and AG Loretta Lynch say they just happened to meet at an airport.  (Sorry.  Don’t remember which one.)  I really don’t believe that one.  More important it brings a question to mind.  Just how many more “incidental” meetings occurred during the months just before and just following the election.

The meeting just happened to be recorded by a newsman.  Then, when confronted, they tried to say they talked about grandchildren and golf.  It was a very bad lie told when they were caught doing a very bad thing.  Moreover, I would suspect that there were very many clandestine meetings.

Anyone who believes their lie would have no difficulty believing my books.

The Bully

The leaders of Iran are nothing more than two-bit bullies.  They are throwing their weight around, such as it is.  There are two ways to deal with bullies.  Ideally, you ignore them.  Sometimes that is not an option.  When they kill people, especially when they threaten to kill people in mass, then it is time to use the second method, or at least make the threat.

Iran has threatened to eliminate Israel.  Soon, if permitted, they will gain the ability to do that.  It means preventing that, no matter what it takes.  Moreover, we need to make sure they realize our intentions.  That means, in the long run, we need to make sure they don’t get a nuclear bomb or the means to deliver it.

In the short term, we need to watch them carefully.  The instant they start flexing what little muscle they have, we need to retaliate and quickly.  We need to make them pay for their stupidity.

That does not mean that we send in troops.  Most likely, there would be no need.  Simply a few well placed conventional bombs would be all that would be needed.  Depending on what they do or threaten to do, ten to thirty bombs would be all that would be needed to send them a message.

It wouldn’t be the purpose to win a war.  It is simply important that we remind them that we have the means and the determination to deal with them.  That doesn’t mean that they suddenly behave themselves.  It is just important that they know each time they strike,  we will counterstrike significantly harder.

Sometimes, it is the only way a bully will learn.  You see, most bullies have are hard of hearing.  Sometimes, it takes three or four lessons, but, eventually, they will learn.  It is better than sending in troops.  It will let them know that we can strike by pressing a few buttons.  Oddly, it is better for them too.  If we have to send troops in, their losses will be far more.

This has another benefit.  In the unlikely event that we would have to send in troops, our army would probably would not encounter much resistance.  Also, if we need to send in troops, they should have one objective, the oil fields.  Without their oil, what little threat they have would be suddenly removed.

The most important part, we need to “bluff” them and then stand ready to fully back the bluff.  There would be another advantage of this method.  Bullies, worldwide, will know that we mean what we say.  It will drastically decrease the need to send our troops anywhere again.

Lower the Ocean

`It would seem we are in dire danger of flooding as the result of the ocean overflowing its shorelines.  Okay.  Let us assume this is true.  If so, it is very important for us to do all we can to prevent it, or at least slow it down.  I have two suggestions on how we can do it.

Firsts, for years we have been filling in large areas of the ocean.  Look at all they did at Dubi where they made the big artificial islands.  Parts of The San Francisco are landfills too.  We need to reverse this.  We can dig out the earth from below the oceans and haul it up onto the land.  The ocean waters will fill it in and, at the same time, it will raise the level of the land.

Second, we can pump ocean water up onto the land.  From what I understand, The Dead Sea is shrinking.  Also, the Salton Sea in southern California is shrinking too.  We could pump a gallon or two into these two places and it would improve both places.  I’m sure there are a few other places where we can put a few gallons without disturbing the ecology.  In fact, it might even improve the ecology.  Can you imagine someone fishing in the middle of the Saudi Desert… or maybe the Sahara for that matter.

By the way, if we pump enough ocean water into the desert, they might be able to make a big tourist area.  That way, when the Saudis run out of Oil, they charge fees for us to visit their desert riviera.  Can you imagine boating across the Sahra?  Or if they dug a few canals, they could use them for shipping.

Then again, if we solve the problem, those worshiping climate change would lose one of their alarms.  Then again, maybe not.  They just might start complaining that the oceans levels are falling.

Why Does Everyone Compare People to Hitler?

It seems these days, every time I turn around, someone is comparing someone to Hitler.  It is as if Hitler was the worst man that ever lived.  Actually, hardly thinking, I can think of at least three men worse than Hitler.  By the way, they were all communists: Lenin, Stalin and Mao Tse-tung.  Each of them killed far more than Hitler.

I’m not trying to say that Hitler is any less a villain, but it would seem that the communist leaders are immune to being used for comparisons.

So when people try to compare President Trump to Hitler, it is nice to know they don’t want to compare him to the worst of the worst.

Nonetheless, they are showing their ignorance.  Hitler was trying to gain utter control of all the world.  President Trump is trying to return fredoms that the socialists are trying to take from us.  President Trump is trying to counter the efforts of the globalists that would like to put the whole world under the terror of one world government.

Actually, I don’t think it is ignorance at all.  Those pushing socialism know exactly what they are trying to do; seek power.  They want to control all we do and all we think. Then, President Trump had the audacity and the courage of getting in their way.
