Fear the Power

Unlike most folks, I actually listened to President Trump’s speech, the one that supposedly incited a riot. Sorry folks. It wasn’t there. In fact the opposite is true. He specifically told them to demonstrate peaceably. I have no idea where the media and the dems got the idea that he encouraged them to riot.

Then I thought it over, that is the whole situation. What if President Trump actually told them to riot. What if he told them to go in and tear things up? Conceivably, he might even tell them to set fire and ransack all the offices of the dems. Is it possible that they would have actually done it?

I’m not talking 50 or 60 people. I’m talking tens-of-thousands. The damage would be far greater. The riot would have lasted far longer. The restoration would likely take a decade.

Don’t get me wrong. I would never suggest such a thing and I’m sure the president wouldn’t either. The dems don’t seem to mind a little fire here and there. They would cheer at a few innocent bystanders getting hurt. They might even love the damage that could be done to all a the seats on the floor, that is if it could all be blamed on the president. The president, on the other hand would be horrified at the possibility, no matter who was behind it.

Nonetheless, the dems do seem to think that President Trump has some unseen power. He could just wave his hand say, “Go to it,” and stand back and watch. I don’t know. Maybe he does have such power. Maybe he could call out how bad that they treated him throughout his presidency. Maybe he could tell the crowd just how the election was stolen from them.

If that is true, and bear in mind, it is just a speculation. If it is true that he does have such power, just maybe the dems should have a little more fear for the man. Can you imagine if he decided to go after Pelosi. He’d hardly have to raise his voice and she’d be no more.

All right. I’m getting a little over the edge now. I am getting almost as bad as the dems that like to go around carrying the likeness of the president’s head. I am almost as bad as that actress that suggested blowing up the White House.

Still, you dems who claim the president is so powerful, you just might want to sleep with one eye open. It might not hurt to keep a half dozen armed guards around too. You just might want to fear the power.

Construction/Demolition

Over the last 4 years, under President Trump we went through a great deal of construction. We brought back jobs, especially manufacturing and the world became much more stable. Not only were the minorities part of this, they were the primary beneficiaries.

In the next 4 years we will go through demolition. The dems will try to destroy everything President Trump built. They can’t help it. It is part of their genetic makeup. The problem is that they have decided to destroy anything else “Trump” as well.

Patrick Henry said, “I might not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it, to my death.”

On the other hand Pelosi and her minions have a different attitude. They will defend your rights to say what you want, as long as it agrees with them. If you don’t agree with them, they will do anything they can to shut you down. As far as they are concerned you have no freedom. They would like it very much if you would move out of their country. And of course, if something goes bad wrong, they will find a republican to blame it on.

The democrats believe in freedom for them and them only. For the rest, we must shut our mouths and submit to their rule… to their control… to their tyranny. Do you think you African-Americans will benefit? Forget it. The only time the dems are interested in you is when voting day approaches. Then, after you vote, they will forget you again. As I said, the only ones they want to benefit are themselves. They want the money. They want the control. The totally want the power. Along the way, they would not mind a few accolades, even if they don’t deserve them.

A Problem with Definitions

Let’s see. When democrats burn things to the ground, injure people and loot, that’s a demonstration.

On the other hand, apparently Trump supporters go into a building, spend a few minutes there, and then leave, that’s sedition. Then, of course, instantly, Trump is guilty of sedition.

Okay. To some degree I agree. People who are guilty of trespassing, destroying property and so forth should and, wherever possible pay. Moreover, people who encourage such things, for example, Maxine Waters and VP to be Harris should also pay. It just is, only those with a D after their name get away with it. By the way, when Trump spoke to those protesters, he never said anything to encourage sedition. Now, the very people who preached sedition to their mob are trying to accuse Trump of sedition. If you’ll excuse the old expression, it is sort of like the pot calling the kettle black. It is sort of like people in glass houses casting stones. It is sort of like the arsonist calling someone a fire-starter.

There is one difference in each case. The labels don’t apply to President Trump. After over three years, they never found so much as one thing that Trump did wrong. When they impeached him, they had to make up charges that wouldn’t have worked in a kangaroo court.

Now, in a last ditch effort, in the last days of his presidency, they are trying to dream up another charge. They only cast the light on themselves. We can now see them for what they are, that is, those of us will open our eyes and see.

In truth, we know who the ones are that are guilty of sedition. We know who encouraged the rioting. We know why the buildings were burned and destroyed. And, by the way, the dems were very happy when President Trump was driven to safety by one of those mobs. Instead of condemning the mob, they enjoyed seeing the president go into hiding. None of the dems even tried to discourage the mobs who tried to destroy the federal court house for a week or more. By the way, that mob earnestly sought to kill the federal agents defending it.

Before Nancy in the brown salon hair charges anyone with sedition, maybe she needs to look in one of her expensive mirrors. She has long been guilty of sedition, before Trump became President Trump. Then again, maybe she is afraid of what she might see if she looks in a mirror. Indeed, she just might be afraid it will shatter.

Okay. Maybe I am getting a little too personal. On the other hand, I am not afraid of what I will see when I look in a mirror. I have done some things that I am ashamed of, but I admit it. When I look in the mirror, I see an old repentant man. When she looks in a mirror, she sees a vain monster.

A Surprise for Those on Twitter

Those of you on Twitter just might want to reconsider. I understand, there are some who rely on Twitter for their business. The thing is, you see, Twitter controls you and those you communicate with. They determine what you say and with whom you communicate. If you step outside their bounds, there are penalties to pay.

Right now, that may not be a problem. However, consider, they might start taking offense to something you say. There is nothing stopping them from reducing your subject matter. On the other hand, one day you might decide to write about something they don’t like.

In effect, it might be like a boa-constrictor snake. They may continue to tighten their coils until they completely own you. You write as they say or you don’t write at all. Better to be free of their coils before it is too late. Better you send them a message now. If people reduce use of Twitter, then they are the ones under control. Maybe the best idea is to simply put them completely out of business. It will send a message to one and all that we are a nation of people who refuse to be controlled. Maybe, just possibly, conceivably, that would be a good thing. It would be better than a few elite controlling the many.

By the way, I do not have a Twitter account. I am not on that page thing. It does slow me down a little, maybe a lot. but I do alright. More important they don’t own me.

I Am Not a Prophet

After this last election, I wish I could go to God and ask him why he permitted the election of that airhead. I cannot understand why he allowed those extreme socialists into our Senate. He does not answer to me and He owes me no explanations.

Somehow, I cannot imagine myself approaching his thrown and demanding a reason.

Still, if he were so inclined, I would like it if he maybe gave me a hint or two as to what he has in mind. It does sort of seem contrary to what he would want. He has turned the presidency, the House and the Senate over to a bunch of atheists. In their last “prayer” that I heard in the house, it was addressed to, basically, whomever it may concern. Then it was ended with awomen. My spell checker flagged that word. There is a wavy red line under it. The reason it did is because there is no such word and I refuse to add it to my dictionary. The man that said it was simply revealing his ignorance. The word “amen,” has no reference to gender, male or female.

If he had a true high school education, he should have realized that. At or about the fifth grade, I noticed that the word seemed to be used a lot. So I asked about it. I was told that it was simply a way of confirming any prior words. In essence, it is nearly the same as saying, please let it be so.

So, this is now what we will have running our government for at least the next 2 years and I haven’t a clue as to His purpose. However, I can guess. If any or all these guesses are wrong, maybe God will let me know.

On the other hand, no matter who sits in the oval office, God is still in control. It leads me to my first guess. Maybe God is sending them a message. “You think you are in control. Guess what!”

As I look around, I must admit that he has many reasons to let our country just collapse as punishment for leaving him out of our schools… and our lives. Of course, He can just pronounce the sentence and it would done in the blink of an eye. However, I have found He likes to just let things take their natural course. He turns the reins over to the democrats for a decade or two and the US would become a third world country, or worse.

That brings me to the next reason. Maybe He wants us to realize the disasters of socialism. After we live in a communist country for a decade or so, we just might realize the error of our ways. The problem is, will it then be too late. Once communism has its grip on a country, it seldom lets go.

One thought is almost humorous, if not so serious. President Trump now knows who his enemies are and who his friends are. It has become plain. It is not that he made them his enemies but rather they have chosen to abandon him. Also, if we who keep our eyes open we will know the enemies of our country. There are many who call themselves republicans who are trading our inheritance in for a bowl of soup. We now know who they are. Hopefully, we will weed them out and replace them with men and women of real courage and conviction.

As I said, I am not a prophet. Nothing I have written here is directly from The LORD. Still, my best guess, I suspect the US has seen the last of her glory days. I think God has lost His patience with us. He has given us his blessings and we have shown Him our backs. How can we expect that he would continue to bless those who have forgotten Him. We are literally giving Him a bad reputation before the rest of the world. He is unable to point to us as an example of God fearing people.

READ!!

I have written on reading before. However, it is important enough that it that should be revisited often.

First, schools do not always teach people how to read. Moreover, whenever possible, parents should teach their children starting at 4 or maybe 3. It will give your child a great head-start in school. Moreover, if your child can read when he enters school, it will improve his grades in other subjects as well.

Reading books will greatly increase his vocabulary and understanding of the world around him. This is true for reading for entertainment as well as learning.

Moreover, encourage your child to read every day. A little reading each day will improve the speed at which he reads. More important, it helps to develop that part of the brain used for reading. It is, so to speak, the way with all exercise. That which is exercised is developed. Therefore, the skills exercised and practiced early in life are better developed.

I read rather slow. At one time I got up to 300 words per minute. I am likely somewhat slower now, though it is subject dependent. When the subject is electronics of computers, I tend to go nearly twice as fast. I suspect it has to do with my interest.

Secondly, have your child read the Bible. As mentioned, I am a slow reader. Yet, I decided I would read two chapters a day. Some chapters were a lot longer; some shorter. Yet, by maintaining my discipline, I finished it all. Then I started all over again. I have read the Bible from cover to cover eight times at least. Some parts, of course more.

One important thing, as a result, when someone incorrectly quotes the Bible to me, I know it right away. No one needs to tell me. Oddly, there are many people going around incorrectly quoting the Bible. Many of them call themselves reverend. Many would like me to believe they are preachers of God’s Word. Knowing the Bible as I do, I generally realize their errors immediately. Even if I don’t, I generally have a strong suspicion. It only takes me a short time to confirm the suspicions or discount them.

Of all the things the Bible speaks of, the one most important thing is salvation, that is, how to make sure you will go to heaven. For those unaware, it has nothing to with all the good works you do. Indeed, there will be many “good men” who will spend eternity in hell. If you don’t believe me, read the Bible. Please don’t take my word for it. (By the way, the Bible is clear about it. If you are going to heaven you will know. If you don’t know, you really need to read the bible.)

It is one of the hardest things I have to deal with. I meet people who are very fine people. They are kind and do may wonderful things. Yet, on the cross, Jesus promised the thief that he would be with Him in paradise. Please tell me what good that thief did. What fortune did he give to the poor. He had nothing to give. He simply asked Jesus to remember him. It was a simple thing but so important. The thief realized his hopeless situation. He confessed his horrible person he was. Finally, he realized Jesus’ power to save and placed his faith in Him, both his power and his promise. (He believed. Therefore, Jesus saved him.)

It is the same way for all of us. There is only little variation. It is only when we realize the hopelessness of our situation; we confess and turn from the bad we have done; then we totally trust Jesus. When we try to trust in what we do or say, it says that we lack faith in Jesus’ power and or willingness to save us. If Jesus can’t or won’t save us, I assure, we cannot save ourselves.

You disagree with me? Read the Bible. Please read it for yourself. Don’t take my word for it. It is the primary reason I suggest you teach your child to read. If he reads the Bible, he will be less likely to be mislead by false teachers. In fact, most false religions will discourage you from reading the Bible. Martin Luther read the Bible and discovered that the Catholic Church had been misleading people for centuries. By the way, they also discouraged people from reading the Bible. They said, “We will read it and interpret it for you. You don’t have the understanding.”

My suggestion is simple. Read the Bible often and ask God to provide understanding. He can do it. He has written it so all can read it, not just the elite. I assure you, Satan does not want you to read the Bible. One of his biggest weapons in deceiving man is to keep everyone ignorant.

Another reason to read is to keep men from deceiving you about: history, government, economics, and basic law. To be sure, we do have to rely on lawyers, but there are some basic things we need to know for ourselves. It may keep us out of jail and it might keep others from defrauding us.

Certainly one of the primary reasons to become a good reader is to help us in our line of work. Certainly lawyers and doctors need to read. The worlds of medicine and law are changing daily. That case the lawyer takes on today just might drastically change in one or two days.

If a doctor were to stop reading, within ten years, he will likely be twenty years behind the state-of-the-art practice. There was a time a man could become a shade tree mechanic and support a family of 6 or 7 until he retired. However, cars now have computers. It has completely changed the world for mechanics.

Moreover, every year or two, they change the design of cars. A mechanic who can’t read is at big disadvantage.

Then too, there is reading for enjoyment. I read “Assignment in Brittany.” I liked it so much I read it two more times. Then I saw the movie that was based on the book. What a let down that was. Movies can be entertaining, but to really enjoy the plot, you need a good book. I suppose it is possible that they could have made the movie of “Assignment in Brittany” nearly as good as the book, but it would have had to be about 12 hours long. How many people do you know willing to sit through a 12 hour movie? Those making the movie simply didn’t have the time to let the story develop as in the book.

One more small thing. There are many more books to chose from than movies.

Some Guilt Belongs to the Courts.

Over the years and especially lately, the courts have been rendering horrible decisions from the benches. In many cases, they are dodging the cases based on technicalities. They refuse to hear the case because someone forgot to cross a T or dot an I.

I’m not going to go through all the details, but those fellas with the black robes in the ivory towers have really come up with some horrible decisions. The ones that made homosexual marriage valid are going to have an impossible task of explaining that one to Jesus. Those characters that made it okay to kill innocent babies are going to have an even tougher time, if you can imagine that.

Now, the Supreme court refused to take up cases based on standings. It might be legal, but it is perfectly dumb. Now, for decades, the matter will not be settled. And of course, those that got away with the steeling the election know they can do it again. They know the courts won’t stand in the way.

In the truest sense, they have allowed the democrats to effectively change the law.

The cases for involving Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona etc. were never decided on merit. The Supreme Court decided it was more important to make sure that they had a proper reason to listen to them. In other words, they danced around them. Now that took a lot of courage.

Now we have demonstrations. Why, but why should anyone be surprised.

My Perspective on Recent Demonstrations

In 3 three words, they are wrong. All of us should stay within the confines of the law, no matter on which side of the isle we reside.

Nonetheless, I do understand it. For 8 or 9 months, those on the left did far more than demonstrate and not one democrat condemns it. Though many of us plead with the authorities to do something to discourage it, instead, they encourage it. When little children die, they remain silent, as if they are gagged.

For three years, the democrats, the media and the FBI yell “Russia, Russia, Russia!” without one bit of proof of any wrong doing. Then, you know what? Not one person, no not one lousy democrat ever offers an apology for the wrong they did… on purpose.

Maybe there isn’t yet proof of voting fraud, but there is proof that the law was broken. We all know this resulted in the theft of an election. A twelve year old can read the tea leaves.

And now, just one time, those who back President trump get a little outside the law, the left cries out to the president, “You caused it. You better get your people in line.”

Bear in mind. It was not the president that drove them to lawlessness, but the media, the democrats and the FBI. Yet, even in their anger, there is no looting. There is no killing. No statues are pulled down. There are no fires and there is no damage to private property.

The senators and representatives were moved for safety. Yet, I suspect they were never in any real danger.

On the other hand, had it been a leftest riot, there would have been firebombs, dangerous fireworks, clubs and the like. If one representative resisted, it would have resulted in his hospitalization or even his possible death.

Again, I do not defend the mob methods, from either side. However, when people keep being pushed, it is only a matter of time before they reach their breaking point. It should be expected. Indeed, it is the reason for the American Revolution. It is an example of the results of when reasonable men are forced beyond their breaking point.

I have a solution

In the middle of the southern California desert there is a lake. I have seen it. If you take a little time, you can find it on the Google maps. It is a short distance from Indio. It used to be a big tourist place. People used to go there and swim and ski.

Not so much anymore. You see it has two problems. First it is getting smaller. Second, as suggested by its name, it is full of salt water. As the water evaporates, the the Salton Sea becomes more salty. Currently, the water is about 30% saltier than the ocean, which makes it quite toxic.

Currently, they tell me the ocean level is rising. I wrote a post on this, I guess about a year ago. I’m not going back through that, but very little of it has to do with global warming. Mostly, the Salton Sea is below sea level. Water could be filtered and then permitted from the ocean into the lake. In order to increase the level of the lake back to the desired level, it would take millions, perhaps billions of gallons of water.

There. You see, it would be a win, win, win for all. The recreation area would be restored. The water would be less salty and the ocean would would go down a little. Who knows? Maybe we could actually increase the level a little above the original level. Moreover, maybe there are other places we could find to store all that access ocean water. Maybe we could allow a little into the dead sea.

If we really got rambunctious, we might even dig a few holes specifically for the water. Can you imagine a lake in the middle of Saudi Arabia. It would permit swimming and boating in an otherwise arid area. And, of course, it would drastically increase the value of the land. They could build hotels, apartments and even homes along the shore.

Who knows, if we build enough of these lakes around, we might help the temperature go down. The vaporization from the lakes would help cool things down. It might even cause a little rain around the lakes. This in turn would decrease the so-called global warming.

Then, of course, we can’t do any of these things. The dems would not like it. They would lose one of they big clubs with which to destroy the republicans.

So, no matter how good the idea, forget it. It won’t happen. Not if the global warmest crowd has anything to say about it.

For What Reason?

In general, I think the vast populous knows that there was cheating. The vast percentage of republicans know simply because they kept their eyes open. Being as the dems were doing the cheating, they are well aware of it. Indeed, they are far more aware of it but they simply try to hide it and not to well. Failing at that they try to deny it, this while they still figuratively have their paws in the cookie jar.

I have been thinking on the subject and a question occurred to me. For what reason do they cheat? Clearly, they realize, with their ideas and nominees, they that it is the only way they can win. Clearly, they think winning is really, really important; enough so that they go to great risk. If it gets out of hand, it would cause a scandal from which they would never recover.

There may be other reasons I haven’t considered, but I have come up with two. Possibly they think they are doing it for our good. On the other hand, maybe they are doing it for their good, to enhance their power and riches.

Knowing the nature of the dems, I suspect it is the selfish rather than the altruistic reason. I just can’t imagine them having any concern for the folks, especially when I see them doing things that have led to the death of so many people. It’s sort of like expecting a snake to act like a nice friendly dog. Nice is simply not in their nature, though they do try to act like it is.

In that respect, it means snakes are better than democrats. Snakes have no pretense of being good. You see, they know that the more money that goes through the government, the more they can skim off for themselves.
