Vaccines

One day when I was in the fourth grade, we came in from recess and there was a projector in the room. It had a good sized reel on it and it looked like it was ready to go. We were all thrilled because we realized we were going to see a movie. In this case, it was a movie put out by Bell Telephone about vaccines. At the time, they produced a number of very good educational movies intended for the lower grades. I wonder if anyone still does that, that is movies without a political slant to them. Well, I guess today they would call them videos and they likely would not need a projector. Any HD TV and a DVD would do.

At any, I got to thinking about the film the other day. Then I got to wondering if the films are still available. Seems to me, that Fauci should watch it. He might learn something from it. For that matter, many of his cohorts would as well.

Just why is that Fauci is not already in prison?

Six Important Facts to Remember About Governments

  1. The more money you give to a government, the more power it will have.
  2. The more power you give a government the less freedom you will have.
  3. The less freedom you have the more money the government will demand.
  4. The more money the the government demands, the less money you will have.
  5. The more power the government has, the more they will demand.
  6. The more power the government has, the less power the people have.

Hence, the government is neither of the people nor by the people, but rather by tyrants who will tell us what to do and when to do it. The right to assemble or protest will cease. It is exactly the way of the dems. When they promise change, it is exactly what they have in mind. They desire to take your money, your power and your freedom.

A Slick Idea

Currently, if Biden and Kamala were to resign, Pelosi would become president. It means we need to wait until after the 2022 election. Then we elect President Trump as Speaker of the house. (Speakers need not be a representative) This might be difficult being as there are a number of never-Trumpers in the House.

Still, if we can manage it, all that would be required would be to get Biden and Kamala to resign. Then, Trump goes back into the presidency and he starts fixing all the things Joe messed up. Now isn’t that slick. Not only that it would cause the extreme left to start climbing walls.

There are but three problems with the idea. Joe is really good at messing things up and he can do a lot of damage in a year. Second, Joe and Kamala would likely never resign. Third, republicans don’t do things like that.

On the other hand, the FOCs would not hesitate for a second if the situation were reversed. It sort of makes a person wonder why anyone would vote for them. And yet they do. On the other hand, the former president just might make a good speaker.

Pets? Investments?

A number of years ago, someone came up with a brilliant idea that I wish I had – pet rocks. He went out and collected some rocks he thought had the right shape and cleaned them up. Then he painted eyes, nose and mouths on them. Then, of all things, he had the nerve to sell them as the perfect pets. He spoke of all the advantages. They were easy to take care of. They didn’t complain when you forget to walk or feed them. They don’t stain the carpet or jump up on you. They don’t bark or whimper all night… etc, etc and so forth.

Oddly, people bought them by the millions. Can you imagine that people bought something you can go out and pick up off the ground. I have no idea how much he made off the idea but it was far more than I did and he didn’t work nearly as hard.

It just goes to show, you don’t need to find things people need. All you need is just the right gimmick. You come up with the right idea, no matter how ridiculous and then, instantly, you’re a millionaire.

Ridiculous as the above is, someone came out with something even more absurd, a coin that neither exist nor has any intrinsic value. The things now sell for roughly $50 grand and they simply don’t exists except inside a bunch of servers. If those computers burp, a bunch of folks will lose a bunch of money and there will be no way to recover it. I don’t think I would would even think twice about investing a dime in such a thing. I worked around computers most of my life and I found there are to many things that make them burp.

Personally, I think those that bought the pet rocks had more sense. At least they had something to show for their purchase.

Then again, maybe some of those buying the non-existent coins have less than lawful reasons for making such an investment. Also, those who sell the coins might realize it. I don’t know. Just guessing.

Panic in Virginia

It looks like the Friends Of the Criminals are pulling out all the stops in Virginia. Could it be that they fear a loss for their beloved candidate for governor, the one that believes that parents have no part in the education system. The latest polls indicate it is about a dead heat, which, naturally means that they are behind. You know how those pollsters like to fudge a little for the FOCs.

Someone suggested bringing in O.O.O.O. Biden to bolster the FOC position. Another, with more wisdom, spoke up, “No we don’t want to do that. We’ll lose by five points for sure.”

To be sure, even if the FOCs squeak by, it will still be a loss for them in a way. If they don’t win big in a big blue state right next to DC, they might have trouble winning anywhere come the 2022 elections. They certainly don’t want anyone to think such a thing… not when they are having so much fun spending all our money.

note: for those who do not understand the abbreviation O.O.O.O., it stands for Occupier Of the Oval Office. I still don’t believe he won the election. If Hillary can say she won, then I can say Biden lost. I have more proof than she does.

Crazy Nuts

It is the title of one of my books. It is about a woman who was taught not to call people dumb or stupid. She was told it was impolite. Therefore, she resorted to crazy for some and crazy nuts for the the few who were the worst.

This afternoon, I saw a news story that fit the bill for this. Apparently, in an effort to raise her standings, Kamala decided to stage an event in which she pretended to talk to children about space and the moon. Somehow, word got out that the children were actors. Now that falls into the category of crazy nuts.

However, they were hired from a Canadian firm, which of all things was named Sinking Ships. That exceeds crazy nuts. This falls into the category of dumb on top of stupid. Or is it stupid on top of dumb. I am sure you get the idea.

And then Kamala and her cohorts believe they are smarter than us so we should blindly follow their lead.

By the way, has anyone noticed how Kamala is doing with the border these days? Maybe after this above stunt, it is a good thing she is staying away from it. I don’t know how, but she just might make it worse.

Trust God

The two words seem so simple. Yet, we all know that when it comes time, it is about the hardest thing a person can do. To be sure, trusting God is perhaps one of the best ways to please Him we know of. To be sure, the Bible says that Abraham believed God and God counted it as righteousness. Put another way, God forgave him of his sin because Abraham believed him. It tells us that trust in God is very powerful.

It reminds me of the story that President Reagan told about a man that fell from a cliff. He quickly grabbed onto a limb. So there he was with no way to go up and looking at a 300 foot fall if he let go.

Out of desperation, he called out, “Is there anyone up there!?”

Clouds formed and from the clouds he heard, “This is God. Are you willing to do anything I tell you?”

“Yes God, anything. Just tell me and I’ll do it.”

God told the man, “Let go of the branch.”

The man looked down. Then he looked up. Then he looked down again. Finally, he yelled, “Is there anyone else up there!?”

I don’t remember how old I was when I first heard that story. I might have been in high school. My immediate thought was that, if I were in the man’s position, I would immediately let go. The older I get and the more times I think it over, I’m not so sure. It is easy to say I would trust God but at this point, I simply don’t know. I would very much like to be able to know I would, but none of us really know it until we face the situation head on.

Three Israelites were thrown into a fire for following the Lord. Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den. That’s trusting in God. Moreover, it is more than a story. It really happened. I like to think that I would do the same. The fact is, I don’t know.

To be sure, I have taken stands that have cost me. God did not always intervene for me, leastwise not that I saw. Nonetheless, I do trust Him, that is to say as much as I can. Now, would I jump out of a plane on His instruction. I don’t know if I would, even with a parachute. It just is sometimes we don’t know our faith until it is tested.

To be sure, it is sometimes why he tests our faith… that is, so we will know. He doesn’t need to find out. He already knows. On the other hand, sometimes he wants to strengthen our faith. Every time we go through a trial, it can build our faith. Then again, should we fail, we will learn that too.

Ultimately, we all do need to trust Him for one thing. We must totally and fully trust in Jesus as our savior. We must not try to add a thing to it. If we do, then we don’t really totally trust him. It means we think we need to help. To totally trust in Jesus for our salvation, God counts our faith as righteousness and his reward is to save us from our sins.

Don’t trust in any other faith. Don’t trust in any church or religion. Nothing else can save you. It is what God tells us in the Gospels and it is what he wants us to do. That means we let go of everything else, including our own abilities and we trust in Jesus and Him alone.

John 3:16 does say:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

If you don’t believe it, you are calling Jesus a liar. Unless you change your mind, you will pay for that sin in hell forever, regardless of any good or bad you ever did. The instant you believe, your salvation is immediate and forever. God is the only one who can revoke it. If he does, He will not be keeping His promise. So, your salvation is instant and forever.

So. Whatever it is that is keeping you from accepting Christ as you savior, let go of it. It can’t save you. In the end it will do you no good. Stand on the words of Jesus himself as John quoted. Trust Jesus, the living Son of God and He will save you.

Canyons and Debts

I’m not exactly sure of the year. Might have been 1984, the year the Olympics were in L. A. I have relatives in California and I went out to visit them. It was convenient that it was the year of the Olympics because McDonald’s provided prizes for medals the US won. Because the Soviets were boycotting the Olympics, (Likely just because we boycotted the Olympics the prior time) the US meddled in far more sports. Hence, McDonald’s payed for about a fourth of our food.

Considering that there were four us us, two of which were young teens, that was a big help. Every time we stopped for a meal, we had scratch-offs from our precious meal. That isn’t to say we always ate at McDonald’s, but as I said, they did help a lot.

When we reached Flagstaff, we spent the night. Then, seven in the a.m., we headed north to the Grand Canyon. Considering we were passing nearby, why not? We might not get another chance.

After zig-zaging a while and climbing, we found ourselves on a large flat plateau. Every now and then, we saw signs, “Land for sale, $1,000 an acre.” I actually considered buying a couple of few acres. I was hardly rich but I could have afforded a few thousand.

I wondered why they were almost giving the land away. As luck would have it, a short time before we reached the Grand Canyon, there was a McDonald’s. We decided to stop and turn in a few of our scratch-offs there. Then, as we entered, we saw the explanation for the cheap land. The sign said, “Because we have to haul all our water here, we must charge a little more for some of the items on the menu.”

So there it was. The place was right next to the Colorado River. Yet, it is one of the driest places in the US. Go figure. Still, over the years, I have considered, if I were wealthy, I might buy a few acres there. I don’t guess I’d need to concern myself with the neighbors much. I mean, while I was there, the only folks I saw were mostly on the road. They were either on the way to or from the Grand Canyon.

It wasn’t a long way out of the way, but it did take a while to get there. Then, when we arrived, the wife and kids were busy watching the squirrels. Never figured on that. Here we were at one of the biggest canyons in the US and they were fascinated with squirrels.

I mean, we have squirrels at home, a lot of them. Well, I must admit, they were fearlessly running up and down the wall of the canyon. I mean, I didn’t want to get so close to it, and the baby squirrels were right at home on the edge of the cliff.

We moved on to another lookout point where we could oversee a plateau that was about half way to the actual bottom of the canyon. After looking for a while, the person next to me said, “Hey! there are people down there.”

I looked down there, and then at the person who spoke. “Where,” I asked? “I don’t see any.”

In a short time, he pointed them out. If they had not been moving, I’d still not have seen them. It does give a person a little perspective of just how deep that canyon is. I mean, the numbers simply do not do it any justice. Those folks were only half way down and I didn’t see them.

Later, I found out that people are allowed to walk down there. However, before they do, they must register and go through an orientation. In it, they warn the would be hikers, it is sort of like climbing a mountain in reverse. Once you go down into the canyon, it is far more difficult climbing back up. Therefore, be careful about exceeding your abilities.

As I think back over it, I realize it is much like debt. It is easy to climb down into it. Working your way back out… not so much.

Those senators and representatives don’t seem to have figured that out.

Questions for the FOCs

If there are so many that want the 4T bill, why do they have to do so much arm twisting to get it passed?

If there was no cheating on the election, why do they want to bury all the evidence? Why is it they don’t want the forensic experts to see it? Could it be that they know that it was not on the up and up?

Why is it that Biden doesn’t answer questions?

If they did such a good job in Afghanistan, why is it that they no longer want to talk about it? Seems to me, if they did so well, they would want to brag about it. Oh. Wait a minute. They did and that did not go over well.

Now let me see. Just why is it again that we need to spend 4.5 trillion dollars? Just who is it that has read the bill? Actually, at this point, I don’t even think it is done. Surely they will compete it before they pass it.

Just why is it that Kamala likes to laugh so hard at serious questions?

Just why is it that we need to build recharging stations all over the US. If we do and no one buys the electric cars, who will use them? Who will maintain them? For that matter, who is going to make money off them? Could it be the friends of the FOCs?

I’m sure you can think of a few questions I haven’t. However, the biggest question of all, how are we going to get them to answer any question? It is sort of like the FOCs. They never like answering questions, especially those that probe real problems. ?

A Much Better Compromise

I understand the Minority Leader’s concern for buckling here. There was an awful lot of pressure on those two senators. However, he should not have completely given in here. He should have made it contingent on restoring the border to the way it was under Trump. He should have required the walls to be completed. That would have accomplished something, maybe. It actually would have saved lives. Moreover, it would have exposed Biden’s open borders.

Wait a minute. I don’t think that McConnell would have liked that. If my memory serves me, he was not so much in favor of the wall. There were a few republicans who didn’t like the idea of cutting off the cheap labor.

I guess he could have used the alternative. He could have insisted on continuing the pipelines, drilling and fracking, including New York. This would have helped a lot. It would have helped to bring down the price of oil. It would have put people back to work and it would have made the US energy independent again.

Then again, the FOCs might not like that. They like us dependent on others, especially Russia and China. They might have preferred to let us default. Either that, or the dems would have done the increase in debt by themselves.

At least that would have exposed the FOCs for what they are, a bunch of power hungry characters that would prefer to allow death than to permit energy independence.
