Justice Delayed (The old axiom)

Justice delayed is justice denied. I tried to find out who originally said it but I failed. Whoever was the first one who said it, he was far before my time so I guess he won’t mind if I use the quote, as have many others. Martin Luther King paraphrased the quote and no one called him out for it.

At any rate, it is quite obvious that it is true in many ways. For the victim, time aids the perpetrator avoid prosecution. Old memories fail, documents are lost and, of course, witnesses die. For the accused, if he is innocent, he may spend months or even years in jail while no evidence is ever presented against him. Then too, of course, he can suffer the same problems as the prosecution. After all, if he loses evidence or witnesses, his justice has also been denied.

After President Kennedy was killed, they had a brief investigation. Then they sealed it for fifty years. The reason they gave was that after 50 years, most of those involved would be dead. I was a teen at the time, in high school. I didn’t understand the decision then and I understand it less now.

In my mind, if Kennedy was not killed by Oswald, then Kennedy and his family had been denied justice. By the way, Oswald too was denied justice. By sealing the investigation, they insured that that, if justice was not done, justice never would be done.

It goes beyond that. It has caused rumors and speculations of rumors. The one thing that bothers me the most is one question. “What did they know that they did not want us to know?”

I am not one of those deniers. I suspect that Oswald was the one who pulled the trigger that fateful day. He might have even pulled it twice…. Three times, I start getting a little suspicious. I am not one who is ignorant of guns. In the Marines, I qualified with an M-14, an M-16 and a .45 cal pistol. I have fired an M-60 machine gun, an M-79 grenade launcher and one of those stove pipe things they use for killing tanks. Oh, I can’t forget, I also fired a shotgun a number of times.

I also realize that a person can fire a bolt action rifle fairly rapidly, if he is well practiced. I have neither seen nor heard that Oswald was well practiced. Moreover, as a marine, if he had his choice of weapons, he would not have used a bolt action rifle. If accuracy were so important, maybe, but marines qualify at 500 meters with semi-automatic rifles regularly…without scopes. From what I understand, the range was nowhere near that far. Any decent semi-automatic 30-06 rifle would have worked, though the scope would have been a little bit of a benefit.

The big advantage of a semi-automatic is that, in the same time, Oswald might have killed 5 or 6 in about the same time. He would have never had to take his finger off the trigger nor would he have spent as much time taking aim. Sorry about those who want to stick to the report. I don’t buy it.

Something else that bothers me. When I was going through boot camp, something that was drummed into our heads from day one to the day I graduated, plan ahead. That means one of two things happened. Either Oswald ignored all boot camp training on the matter or he made plans that did not work out. I prefer to believe the later.

Indeed, I would suspect any investigator with his eyes wide open would realize Oswald had a plan that went bad. Taking off by foot indicates panic, not planning. My guess is that someone was supposed to be waiting for him as he left the building. The two of them were to take off and get lost in traffic. His cohort panicked and left him behind. On the other hand, the man, the planner behind the whole thing, planned to leave him behind. That would suggest that there was indeed a planner, something that the Warren Commission refused to admit, in spite of all the evidence suggesting it.

If no one was helping him, where was that getaway motorcycle he left behind, or at least a bicycle. To this day, I have never heard anyone suggest any escape plan. For that reason alone, I simply don’t believe the Warren Commission.

I could go on but it is not my point in this post. It is a mere example of how the axiom is so true. Certainly, because of the Warren Commission’s decision to seal the investigation, it only causes suspicions to simmer. To make matters worse, it has been over 50 years and there are still things they are keeping under wraps. What is it that they don’t want known? What piece of justice are they denying to Kennedy, Oswald and to us?

Nonetheless, it has become a practice to withhold justice for a time, hoping that no one will notice. They keep saying there was no fraud in the 2020 election all the while refusing to investigate it. If they can stall us for a few years, it will destroy any evidence. Then, they can truthfully say there is no evidence of fraud.

They keep people locked up for the so called insurrection and they deny them a trial. I suspect some have never been able to enter a plea. And, forget any evidence that might clear them. It’s been six months. They have had plenty of time to hide and/or doctor any such thing.

Now, they have a new way to deny justice. You say something they don’t like and you get fired from your job. If your employee does not fire you, then they go after your employee. There is no justice. There is no court. If there were a court it would be as in the old movies. “Don’t worry. We will do it right. First we will try and convict you.” A kangaroo court would have more justice.

They wrote The Constitution to protect us from the government. They never figured they needed to protect us from the cancel culture.

And so it is, we have to watch what we do, what we say, what we think…not because of that the government might do to us, but out neighbors. Orwell was afraid of government becoming big brother. Well, big brother is here. And now, big brother gives orders to the government. And, of course, there is no justice at all. What passes for justice comes from social media.

What we call social media is really oppressive media and they do as the Nazis did prior to WWII.  They shame anyone who does not think as they think and they destroy them in the public square which they call social media.

Going Slow

Came up with an idea the other that would save untold lives. We need to never exceed 20 mph in a motor vehicle. In general, we have over 35 thousand deaths attributed to auto-accidents each year in this country. Driving at the top limit of 20 mph might not save all these lives, but it would save the vast majority of them.

Also, we need houses with one foot walls of steel reinforced concrete. It would be expensive, but think of all those who die yearly, in their own houses. This would vastly decrease the lost of lives due to fire, falling trees, tornadoes and hurricanes. By the way, we would want to make sure those houses are ten or fifteen feet above the ground to avoid deaths by flood.

All highways and public buildings should be built to withstand 12 on the Richter Scale. This would virtual save all lives from earthquakes.

Okay. I’m being flippant. Certainly you have figured that out. Yet, almost daily, we hear the phrase, safety first. In truth we really don’t mean that. If we did, our lives would be radically different. Every day, we make compromises. Because we don’t want to spend an hour or two going to work each day, we go at speeds of 55 to 65 mph. To be sure, it is an unnecessary chance. However, those of us with families would like to see them now and then so we travel at the higher speed.

The house idea would save lives. However, it would like cost 4 or 5 times more. Again we compromise. Most of us don’t sustain house damage so we have learned to take the risk. If buildings had to be built to withstand all earthquakes, we would certainly be better off but hardly anyone would be able to live in them.

Every day, we make life/death decisions. Sometimes people do die.

I had heart surgery. They did four bypasses on me. They put an IV in my arm and the next thing I knew I woke up with a horrible pain in my chest. I made a life/death decision. The doctor that worked on me knew what he was doing and he had a very good reputation. He obviously did it right, because that was about twelve years ago.

It took some time after they came up with the vaccine that I had the opportunity to get it. But I did get it. That too was a life and death decision. None of the vaccines are fully approved. We, as people with brains, made decisions knowing this. If it were safety first, very few of us would have the vaccinations. That does not give the government or anyone the right to chose for us. It is a life/death decision which we mush make for ourselves, just as I did when I decided for the bypass surgery.

Well, actually, there is a difference. The surgery was totally accepted. It was not experimental and I was still given the choice.

To be sure, maybe it is time for government and media to stop telling us what to do or not do. They can give me the pros and cons, but I still had to sign that paper before they could put me under. Should it be any different for an experimental shot.

Crime? Gun Crime

Just saw part of a new conference in which the reporter asked what Biden was going to do about crime. Jen Psaki replied to the unasked question of that Biden would do about gun crime, implying that all crime was gun crime. I hate do disillusion her or her boss, but most crime does not involve crime. Indeed, guns are not even needed when people can go into stores and walk out with whatever they want. Most rape does not involve a gun. As described in my earlier post, most assaults are with the hand or fist. I saw a news story today, an older woman was assaulted with a pot, the kind you use for cooking. That is not a gun crime, yet that woman’s wounds are just as real. Really! Can any one man be more dense??

Quote of the Week

The Quote of the week goes to D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee who admits to be mad over the recent shooting in his city. He said “I guarantee that when we lock up whoever did this, they will not be strangers to us.”

This seems to be his way of telling those who did it that they will be locked up and telling us that they were very likely repeat offenders. The man knows how to use his words. He also knows where the problems are.

Also, in a way he is saying what I have said many times, “The best way to stop crime is to keep the criminals in prison.” That way, the police will not have to deal with them nearly as much.

There Goes Uncle Joe Again

Not long ago, I heard Biden say something to the effect that we need to start trusting our government again. First of all, I would never trust Biden with the time-of-day. The only way to keep him from lying is to wire his mouth shut. Second, The United States Constitution was designed on the concept that we SHOULD NEVER EVER trust government. Governments are made of men. When we trust men they will fail us. Men are inherently power hungry. It is the reason they built so many checks and balances in the our government. It is also why they put so much power in the hands of the newspapers. (Unfortunately, even the news media can fell as we have well seen,) The fact of the matter is the government that insists on our trust is likely government we should trust least.

The ideas I have written are not new. It is spread throughout the Federalist Papers. If men are left alone to rule, they will rule. They will take control and we will lose our constitutional form of government.

I wished Biden had tried to tell me I am supposed to trust him. Look what happened when we (trusted/elected?) him. Crime has sky rocked, he is the puppet of Russia and China, and he can’t even figure out which way he is supposed to go while on stage or what questions he is not supposed to answer.

Also, look what happened when we put our trust in Fauci (part of government bureaucracy). 4 million people died, the world economy went into a nose dive and no one seems to be able to get him to admit to what he has done, though it as plain as the mask on his face.

Some Folks Say the Problem is Guns

I was flipping back and forth through the channels. On one channel I watched Biden blame all the crime on Guns. I would go through all of it, but I’m sure you heard it before.

Then I switched to another channel and saw a woman describe how a young man bludgeoned her son to death with his bare hands. Maybe someone can explain to me how it is that a gun figured into that. By the way, it looks as if the murderer will only serve eight years, maybe. Apparently, the St. Louis DA really messed up.

Maybe we should concentrate less on the guns and more on the murderers and those who are supposed to prosecute them.

Justice for All

It is nice to know that we are again meting out justice. It just is that most of the justice is going to be meted out on those who entered The Capitol Building on Jan 6. On the other hand, those that are busy looting pillaging and burning stores near you to the ground have no justice meted out to them.

I guess it is nice to have friends in high places, you know the friends I’m referring to, the ones I call friends of criminals (FOC).

A Thought About Ice Cream

Picture this, a boy, 8 to 10 years old. You can chose your own age. He sits in front of a big banana split with lots of sauces, whipped cream and nuts on top of it. As he digs in, in between bites, he complains about how horrible it is. Then, when done, he stomps off and shouts how horrible it was, though he left very little behind.

Now, let’s shift things a little. Maybe we are talking about a professional athlete. Maybe we are considering a wealthy actor. On the other hand, maybe we are just speaking of a wealthy person, a self made millionaire. All the time they enjoy their freedoms and privileges as an American citizen, they complain about the nation in which they lives Come to think of it, we might be referring to a US representative, one who came from a third world country, one which is dangerous to live in and knows no freedom, especially for women.

He or she, all the time while enjoying one of the most highly prized citizenships worldwide, they simply complain about this and that and the other thing. Unlike the boy, they do not go away. I wished they would. Instead, they hold onto all that is theirs, all that this county has provided for them.

Do you see any similarity?

A Whole Lot of Disseminating Going On

Something to remember about disseminating info.

When someone is disseminating accurate info, or likey accurate info and you keep them from disseminating it while claiming it is not accurate, in effect you are disseminating a lie. In some cases, this might involve the lives of people.

Well, let’s see, the FOCs and their social media refused to let out the info on the lab production of the China virus, for over six months. They derided the Hydrocortisone only to find out it was effective in the early treatment of the virus. It would seem that one cost a few thousand lives. Then again, they don’t care. It was all about making the president look bad. I mean, how can they win the election when President Trump is doing such a good job.

Then there is the mask theory. Personally, I believe they do a little good, though I suspect it is hard to prove. There is no way a mask will stop a virus 100 thousands of an inch in diameter. Occasionally one will get caught on a fiber but if the virus is in the air it will go through that mask as if the mask isn’t there. The only way it might work is by catching droplets that contain the virus. I have no idea how effective that would be.

Let’s not forget the thing about Black Lives Matter. Sorry, the statement elevates African-Americans above all others, including Latinos Indians Israelis and Asians. (Sorry if I left any out.) Moreover, the statement has holes in it. No one in the organization seems to mind when one Black man shoots another, even if the other is only 1 or 2 years old. If some ninety year old black woman is killed, it doesn’t matter because she was not killed by a white policeman. If Black lives matter, then they matter, and they do, why don’t they matter when abortionists kill them, at the beginning of life.

These social media, AKA Big Tech, have a lot of blood on their hands. People genuinely try to save lives and big tech destroys these people, thereby disseminating bad info, thereby , in effect, killing people. We are not talking two or three lives. We are not talking hundreds, but thousands.

But then their lives matter not, no matter what their color they are. It is truly about the power. When it is discovered that the social media made a mistake, there is no apology. There is no one who pays a price. They simply make the change so that people can again make posts about the virus starting in the lab.

There is to be that there is one person who has truly disseminated bogus info for over a year and in a criminal way. Why is Fauci not in prison yet? Why isn’t he wearing an orange jumpsuit?

The Epitome of Efficiency.

When Biden was elected president, I knew the stock market would turn south. Being as I do have a 401k I had hoped it would take 2 or 3 years maybe.

He did fool me. Looks like he has managed it in about 6 months. I guess he really knows how to do some things fast and efficiently. Now I shall have to rely much more on my Social Security. Maybe I need to rephrase that. I just might have to go back to work. I don’t know if that will be enough.

My guess is that I am not the only one in my situation. Anyone out there need a computer operator? I suspect I may have to settle for flipping hamburgers. I did it a fore. I suppose I can do it again. Just is, I will have to settle for shorter shifts at my age.
