The New Legislature

In 1973, or there abouts, a so-called landmark decision was made by the Supreme Court, Roe vs Wade. Until that point, abortion was illegal in some states and legal in others.

In November, I will be 73. So, I remember the arguments and the demonstrations. Every night it was on the news. At one point, there was a push to make federal legislation to make it legal throughout the country, never-mind some states were strongly against it. In fact, most states had laws against it, at least past the first trimester.

The legislation failed. They couldn’t get it by congress. I can’t remember for sure, but I suspect the president might have vetoed it if they had. However, those in favor of it came up with an end run. They challenged the laws in the courts.

Eventually, it made it to the Supreme Court. A few men in Black robes invented a right and the Supreme Court, contrary to the Constitution, became a legislative branch.

The democrats learned something that day. “If we can’t get something legal, just go to the courts.” and so it has been evermore. Whatever they can’t get past the House or Senate, they just go to the courts.

There is one problem with that logic. They need to make sure they have the right judges on the court. Without them, it won’t work.

Is it any wonder that they are throwing a hissy fit? In order to enact a law, they must do it the old fashioned way and they just might not be able to do it. The people just might not like it when when they do. (such as Obama care)

Worse yet, some of the decisions just might get overturned. Given the state of the art of medicine, sonograms and such, even Roe vs Wade might get overturned.

Is that such a horrible thing? Maybe the legislatures will have to make the decisions. And, by the way, the legislatures are subject to the people. I think that was the way the founders of the country meant it.

And, by the way, that genius, the one that is going to invent the cure for cancer, maybe he won’t be killed before he is born.

Yep! Biden Stepped in it.

You can tell he stepped in something because the instant the debate was over, you could tell he was trying really hard to get something off his shoe(s). However, it is too late. The people have seen him for what he is, at least a little anyway and I don’t think they liked the smell.

Now he’s in a real fix. First, he can no longer say he doesn’t lie. He was caught red-handed. The frackers (of which there are many in the Quaker State) won’t like him because they know he will take food off the dining room table he likes to talk about. Worse, as he tries to shore up the loss of votes from the frackers, he will say almost anything in an attempt to convince them he didn’t mean it.

That really causes problems. The more he says he will allow fracking, the more he will lose from his green-deal base. I don’t know about you but that looks like a predicament to me. The only saving grace he has is that 50 million people already voted. They can’t change their minds. (Sounds like a reason those dummycrats are so much in favor of early voting)

By the way, I noticed one more thing during the debate. I think if it went on for twenty or thirty more minutes, Biden would decide it was nap time and go to sleep right there in front of everyone.

This does create a real problem for Kamala Harris. If they can’t drag him across the finish line, she very likely will not be able to inherit the presidency… bummer.

One more thing. A dam is just about to break and the world is going to find out that Biden, his son and all those millions he got from all those countries. As long as the dam holds past the inauguration, she just might get the brass ring, assuming that Biden is not so badly damaged that he doesn’t get elected.

That seems to be an obstacle getting more difficult to manage every day. They still need to clean Biden’s shoes off without losing too much of his base.

Giving Credit

I hate to do it, but I must give credit where credit is due. The moderator was actually somewhat reasonable for the debate. The only thing I would hold against her was that she interrupted President Trump over thirty times and Biden twice, maybe three times. I’m not sure which.

Either way, it is over ten times as many. Nonetheless, when either wanted some time to respond, she seemed equally willing.

I do believe Biden really put his foot in it at the end. He made it quite clear that he planned on doing away with all fossil fuel by 2035. That is simply is not going to happen.

First, it would mean really building up the electrical grid system far beyond possibility. I’m not even sure they could make that much wire in that time. If all cars are going to be run from electricity, we are not only speaking of enough for the current but for the vast expansions of cars as well. I would say that in 15 years, we are talking at least an increase of 15 or 20% of autos.

And that’s not all. What about all the houses and buildings that are heated with natural gas, propane or heating oil?

Assuming that the grid could be built up, how do you plan on generating that much electricity. I have a clue for you. You can’t build that many windmills or solar cells.

Besides all that, with his statement, Biden just lost Pennsylvania. They produce a lot of fossil fuel in that state. and, oh yes, they use a lot of it there too. It would take a lot of solar cells to produce the power to run one small steel furnace.

It is just another of many indications that Joe never did anything but politics. I mean, even an eighth grader might have realized his error.

SOUNDS OF SILENCE!

Many decades ago, Simon and Garfunkel wrote a thoughtful piece of music that had a nice tune to it.  It really caught on for quite a while.  I remember I was in Nam at the time just after it came out.  It seemed just about everywhere I went, someone was playing the song or soon would be.

I was reminded of it lately.  I also had a thought about the doomsday preppers.  These people prepare sanctuaries for the doomsday they expect.  So, when the doomsday arrives, they will hide in their shelters in hopes that, after a few months or years they can return to a safe world.

I guess that Biden is a doomsday prepper, of a type.  His doomsday occurred when the computer of his son turned up with all the emails and all the photos.  Suddenly, he has rushed to his shelter and there he will hide, as much as he can, until it is safe to return.  It is even conceivable that he will find a convenient excuse to avoid the debate.  I don’t know.

But there is sound of silence.  He has said little or nothing about the computer or the hard drive.  He has decided to put a lid on it and he ain’t talking to nobody about it, regardless.

It is also the sound of silence from the media.  They will say nothing about the computer either, other than to repeat the old “Russia, Russia, Russia thing.”  I don’t think it will work this time.  The sound of silence is so loud it cannot be ignored.

Finally, there is the sound of silence from anyone who decides to twit about it.  The very instant that someone tries to tweet on the subject, they are silenced.  Hence, it is a sound of silence.

Personally, I don’t have any accounts with any of the social media.  It serves me no purpose.  Besides, I don’t much like people selecting what I can say.  It rather has something to do with the 1st Amendment.  This is as close as I get to any such of an account.  I suspect I give up many possible followers, but I write what I want.  Maybe it is time for other conservatives to do the same.  Maybe it is time for us to send a message to the social media.  If they lose a few accounts, they just might start to understand.

Then again, we all know better.  They all hate the president too much.

Oh yes, there is one more sound of silence.  Hardly anyone telling the world about all the good that our president has done.  I guess that is why he has to toot his own horn.  And of course, you will not find President Trump cowering in some cellar hoping against hope that no one will ask that question to which there is any good answer.

A Simple Complement

A simple complement costs nothing but it can accomplish so much. This evening, my wife and I went to a Waffle House and ate. I took a second to complement the cook. His face lit up as if I gave him a dollar or two.

I know I did not add a nickle to his wealth, yet I could tell he still felt much better because of it.

Those working in restaurants work hard to provide food for us. I know because I worked in a restaurant for two years. Mostly, it is thankless work. A waiter hands someone a meal and the person receiving it will likely just take it for granted. I make it a point to thank every server and I make it a point to be sincere. It is a small thing that costs me nothing but it can help the server bear his workload just a little.

In general we humans are born thankless. We have to be taught to say thank you, even when we don’t mean it. Maybe it would even be better to thank people and actually mean it. Would it be so horrid to actually appreciate that which is done for us?

Let me go one step farther. In light of all that God has done for us, shouldn’t we thank Him from time to time and mean it?

Money=Power

A few years back, a naturalized man by the name of George Soros took advantage of our capitalist system and made billions of dollars for himself. Since then, he has, seemingly been doing all he can to destroy the very system that permitted him to make his fortune.

Instead of using his billions to accomplish good, he has been using it to undercut the fabric of our constitutional system. His latest ploy was to pour millions of dollars into the election of district attorneys to accomplish his will, to let criminals back out onto our streets.

Legal though it is, it is not the way the system is supposed to work. Moreover, it makes me wonder about the motives of the man. When he became a citizen, he took an oath. Now, it would appear he has completely ignored it. His oath was to protect The Constitution and it would appear he is doing what he can to destroy it.

Nonetheless, at least he is using his own money, which he made legally. On the other hand, it would appear that Biden has used money from the US Treasury to lever his deals. In just one deal, he used 1.5 billion dollars of our tax money to get one man fired. In my book, regardless of the reason, that is just wrong.

Moreover, when you consider the reason, it just makes it all the worse.

How can any honest reporter casually overlook such a thing?

I used to think those doomsday preppers were a little touched in the head for spending so much for something so unlikely. Now, I am beginning to reconsider.

Promises, Promises

I keep hearing these promises that people will leave this country if this or that happens. The latest time was that they would leave if candidate Trump became president… but they didn’t.

They are all still here, every last one of them. What a disappointment. I don’t think so much as one actually left. That was very unfortunate.

Now, on the other hand, if Clinton had become president and she invoked all her promises, they would all surely leave…and they certainly would have a lot of company. No one would like what that woman would turn this country into.

Could it Be?

A few weeks ago, I suggested that the plans are to immediately replace Bidden after he is elected. At the time, I think I was about the only one in the world that thoughts such thoughts. As time goes by, I have noticed many others with my idea. I suppose that they might have thought of it all by themselves but I prefer to think they heard about it from me.

At any rate, I think the idea is more and more acceptable. I have heard it suggested a number of times on TV and read it a few times in print. Why not? It really seems very logical. I do wonder if anyone has forewarned Biden. He might not like the idea of being used. Then again, he might actually be in on the idea. (Get elected president and we will make sure you and your grand children never go hungry)

Regardless, now we have another question. He might not make it. With this story from the New York Post, he might not ever make it. He might have to withdraw from the election. He just might do so with the agreement that they won’t lock up his son.

Maybe that won’t be the deal. Maybe it will be something else. Maybe the mere fear of being charged with such horrid crimes will be enough to make him back off.

Then the dems will have another question. Who will carry the pennant for the dems. Kamala just won’t get it. She couldn’t even get the votes of the dems.

Then the communists will have to wait another four years before they can initiate their takeover. Then, horror of all horror, President Trump will have four more years in which to prove Obama and his bunch guilty of sedition and lock them all up.

Sorry. Not going to happen. It is a nice wish though.
