The Dummycrats’ Greatest Fear

Many think that President Trump is the dummycrats greatest feat.  This, of course, is not it at all.  President Trump will come and go.  He will be replaced by another, conceivably even a dummycrat.

The truth is that the one thing the dummycrats really fear is the possibility that President Trump will succeed.  They know that if he does, the country will be far greater than it was during the time that Obama ruled with his “phone and pen.”  Americans will realize that things work better when we spend our own money instead of letting the government have it.

They will also realize it is better when we make our own decisions as to what to say and do instead of allowing the government to tell us what we should do or who we should do it with.  To be sure, they do not want us to realize the way that crime goes down when we can own and carry guns.  They know how much successful businesses are when the government intervenes as little as possible.

However, the fear of all fear for the dummycrats is the idea that the word just might get around.  When they see how freedom and liberty succeeds, other countries just might decide to start copying us.

There was a time other nations did respect us and tried to model their nations after us.  However, the truth is that no other nation has had our success.  Russia had freedom for about ten years: before they were taken over by communists.  Mexico went through three or four governments before they arrived at what they have, socialism.  Venezuela was doing really great: until they allowed a Marxist to take over.  Now they can’t feed their people.  For that matter, I don’t think the government wants to.

Can you imagine a world where all nations practiced freedom and liberty?  I really don’t think the dummycrats would like that.  After all, their design is to reign, to rule.  They want to tell us what to do and what to think.  They want to have control of our money and they want to manage our healthcare.

It is as Liam, William Barr’s grandson, wrote in part.  “The Russian people are fine.  The problem is the government.”  What wonderful words of wisdom.  You look at most of the countries of the world and it is easily seen that their biggest problem is their government.  Certainly, it is the problem in North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, China, Russia, Syria….  You know there are many more.

The truth is that if you want to destroy a country, just put dishonest and power hungry people in charge of it.  One place the US has succeeded is that, starting with George Washing, we kept power hungry people out of it.  If we allow power hungry people to run it today, there will be no US tomorrow; certainly not as we know it.

Dummycrats and Lobbyists

When I first moved to my current home about 40 years ago, the four of us went to a nice place a few miles away.  After we spent the day there, we went to a drive-in restaurant.  My older son put away a foot-long chili dog and a 1/4 pound hamburger, not to mention the fries.  I would guess it would attest to a hard day at play.

Then, of course, we headed home, or at least I thought we did.  The area was sparsely populated and I was not familiar with it.  However, after about fifteen minutes, I started thinking I did something wrong.

I stepped out of the car and realized the sun was behind me.  Up to this point, I was convinced that I was going west.  Wow!  Was that a rude awakening?  The worst part was that I was low on gas and had no idea which way to go to the nearest gas station.  Fortunately, I made the right decision and went north where I found a station in a few miles.  Finally, we actually did head home, west.

I made a mistake, one that I seldom make.  I went the wrong way.  I guess I am not alone.  I heard about a pilot who thought he was going west and flew east to Ireland.  Most suspect that he did it on purpose in order to get around some kind ruling by the government.  There was also a football player who actually ran toward the wrong goal line.  Now that has to be embarrassing.  No one wants to score for the other team, especially in front of thousands of fans.

To be sure, it is sometimes a good thing to stop and take our bearings.  Sometimes, no matter how sure we are, we just might be going the wrong direction.  Certainly, no matter how convinced we are that we are going the wrong direction, we just might be headed toward disaster.  Had I not stopped and checked, I would have run out of gas.  There is no telling how long how long I would have had to wait for help.

If someone takes off from San Francisco in a little Cessna and goes west, he will not ever reach Reno no matter how convinced he is that he is going east.  It might not hurt to look down and see what is below him.  If the weather doesn’t permit, maybe he can use his VOR or maybe his GPS.  If he is convinced all the instruments are wrong, he is going to be in trouble.  That little plane is going to run out of gas before reaching land.

One thing I have personally noticed is that any time dummycrats and lobbyists get together, the Dummycrats will invariably end up going the wrong way.  During their recent little stay in Porto Rico, I understand that there were more than 4 lobbyists for each dummycrat.  Now that is a recipe for disaster.  Nothing good can come from such a thing.  Invariably, the Dummycrats will end up going the wrong direction and the lobbyist will do all they know to convince them they are going the right way.  Moreover, by the time the dummycrats figure it out, there might not be any gas stations around.  They just might be surrounded by open seas.

My Biggest Fear

We can stop some people from coming across the border by stopping welfare.  We can almost put a total stop of illegal immigration by keeping illegals from gaining any form of employment… even the under the table type.

Of course, there are those who cross the border with all kinds of diseases.  The kids attend out schools and expose our children to such things as anti-bionic resistant TB and who knows what else.  Indeed, there might be a few diseases we don’t yet know about.  That in itself sounds like a good reason to build a wall.

Then there are all the drugs that are brought over the border.  It is true that some of it comes in through ports of entry, but the vast majority bypasses the scrutiny the border guards there.  It only stands to reason.  Why sneak the stuff through the border stations when they can just go a few miles to the side and drive the stuff over, virtually unhindered.

However, my greatest fear is that one person or group of people that bring a weapon of mass destruction into the country.  One nuclear weapon in L. A. would be more than disastrous.  There are over ten million in Los Angeles and Orange County area, more than in the city of New York.  There is a huge Navy Base in San Diego, just a few miles north of the border.  Do we really want to leave our guard down as we did at Perl Harbor?

Do you think 9-11 was bad?  If someone sets off a nuclear weapon in San Diego or Los Angeles, even if it is a small one, it will make the attack in New York seem like small potatoes.

Do we always need to learn the lessons by firsthand experience?  Do we always have to wait until after the attack to find out we are vulnerable?  My best guess is that if we wait, it will be too late.  I don’t think we will be able to recover.

The bad part is that we won’t be able to retaliate.  We won’t know who was behind it.  I guess we just just have to retaliate against everyone.  Then, as they say, there won’t be anything left but the cockroaches.

The truth of the matter is that Pelosi and cohorts know the dangers of leaving the border open.  The fact is that it is more than political.  It is about the power.  They want to control the country.  They want to control the world and they want to control everyone in it.

It is as old as civilization.  There have always been those who seem to control others.  There have always been those who want to be king of the world.  The Greeks and Romans used swords.  Hitler used guns.  The dummycrats use promises.  They promise us everything and then they take all our freedom.

In this case, it just might backfire on them.  If someone plants a nuclear bomb in Chicago, they just might want to run for the border and keep running Venezuela.  Then again, they might want to run to Cuba.  My guess is that they would be welcomed there with opened arms.

On the other hand, they would have to give up all the power they accumulated.  They just might have to work for a living.

A Short Question About Tunnels

Dummycrats claim walls don’t work.

If walls don’t work, why do the smugglers go through all the effort to build tunnels under them?

By the way, I have been notified that drones can work… if they are armed with Hellfire missiles.  Helicopters work real good too… if armed with machine guns and rockets.  They would certainly be very effective, but I don’t think it would be such a good idea.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Kiosks and McDonald’s

Eons ago, I am sure that a man used a rock to pound on something. Maybe he was building an arrowhead or he might have been using it to build himself some kind of house. I don’t know. I wasn’t there. Then, one day, someone came on the brilliant idea to affix a rock on some kind of handle. Hence, the hammer was invented. Over the years, the hammer has gone through countless improvements. Moreover, there are at least a dozen variations to the modern hammer.

As with most inventions, it can be used for good or it can be used for damage or harm. Indeed, some hammers were actually designed as weapons, though today, most of them are found in museums. Still, a little two-pound sledgehammer can be quite lethal, though it is not designed as one. Please stay with me as I spring forward to a more modern invention, the computer.

By itself, it is neither good or bad. However, it can be used for either one. Being as I was born well before the modern electronic digital computer, being as I have been around them most of my life in one way or the other, I have seen plenty of both. Ideally, when the computer first came onto the scene, their primary is to save time. They save time because they can perform repetitive tasks very fast.

They save time because they perform complex calculations in a timely manner. (for instance space travel) Now that financial institutions use them, errors are as rare as hen’s teeth, which saves time and frustration. Since they first arrived on the scene, they have one more real advantage. (that is, besides games) They provide enormous amounts of storage. In the time before computers, papers had to be saved for years, taking up rooms of storage.

Now, years of data can be stored on something not much larger than a stamp. It even makes Microfiche old-fashioned. Along the way, the computer has changed the worlds of photography, music, teaching and, of course, literature. My wife hardly goes anywhere without her Kindle. The books she has on the little electronic tablet would fill a couple of good sized chests. About all of us carry phones around, which are full of music and photos. I listen to mine wile walking.

One can hardly imagine such a wonder being used for bad, but it started almost from the start. The first place I noticed it was when they were used for tracking employees. Some employers used computers to track the number of keystrokes by the employee as well as how many errors they made. It is a way to keep an employee under thumb. I actually worked under those conditions for a while. Worse, if I did one thing, I was wrong. If I did the other, I got scolded. Instead of using the computer to streamline things, they used the computer to become Big Brother.

Speaking of Big Brother, the government is using computers to track our ways more and more and they are not the only ones. Though they do not yet use the info for such purposes regularly, they certainly can. It would not take much to make it happen. Indeed, it is quite possible that the foundations are in place.

One of the uses that management has found for computers is in fast food. Most of the major chains have computers tracking how long it takes to process an order. While I am not completely in agreement with the use, it does help to make sure the that the guests receive their order in a reasonable time. It does have a problem. Most frequently, the employees simply delay in taking the order. This allows the staff to apparently provide fast service, though the computer is collecting false data. Recently, McDonald’s has started using kiosks to take orders.

I have had the opportunity to use them a few times and I now have an opinion about them. On the positive side, the staff no longer is able to corrupt the data. The computer times the order from when the customer completes the order until it is completed. Also, the employee brings the order to the customer’s table. For me, that is not a big thing, but I do realize it is for some.

On the negative side, the kiosks are difficult. For me to say that it is something. I was a computer operator for about twenty-five years. It takes me twice as long to enter the order on the kiosk than to provide the order the old way. Moreover, I am not sure of what to do next after each step. The other day, the employee entered the order on the kiosk, and even she entered the order slowly.

I am afraid this was one step backward. The fault, as usual, is not the computer but rather those who programmed it. My personal opinion is that the project will likely go through a number of revisions in the next few years, that is, if they hope to have success with the kiosks. Otherwise, they will simply frustrate their customers. Those like me will simply go to the counter and order the good old fashioned way.

Then again, those like my wife will likely stay away altogether. She does not like computers at all and she lets me know it every chance she gets. To be sure, this is in spite of the fact that they helped me put food on the table through most of our marriage.

Double Hazardous

It is clear that the dummycrats have the strategy to embarrass Pres. Trump by preventing his wall.  One aspect they  may have overlooked is the possibility of  terrorism or epidemic.  It would mean political destruction of the dummycrats should either occur.  To the best of my knowledge, no one has brought up the point.  I would think that the dummycrats thought of it, though they are pretty dumb.

Those immigrants who entered Ellis Island were filtered for disease before they were allowed to enter the country.  If they had a communicable disease, they were kept on the island or sent home.

It might seem heartless, but it likely saved many epidemics, possibly pandemics.  We already know that many of those seeking to cross the border have contagious diseases such as TB.  Some of those who crossed the border already have likely had diseases.  It is only a matter of time until one of them causes the death of possibly millions.  Though there is no way to prove it, I suspect that the new disease that mimics polio likely came from one or more of the illegals.

If a major epidemic, one that costs thousands or millions of lives is traced to an illegal, it could mean major disaster to the dummycrats.  It is why I say they are taking a chance that is double dangerous.  Not only would it be a disaster, but it would mean the end of the career of many dummycrats, and a few rinos as well.

Then again, there is the possibility worst of both, biological terrorists.  It is not beyond possibility.  Indeed, I hesitate to write this.  I would hate to give anyone ideas.  Yet, I don’t think the idea is new.  I doubt that I am the first to think of it.

On the other hand, the terrorists might think twice about using such methods.  If they ever succeed, we would seal up our borders no matter the cost.  The borders would be shut tighter than a vault.  Moreover, those who would terrorize know that their friends, the dummycrats, would have no say in the matter.

The tragedy is, the loss of lives that it would be a horrible cost, for the lesson.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

No More Obama Care

The judge pronounced Obama Care unconstitutional.  While it still lingers for a while, it appears that one of the worst laws passed by our government is going away.

As far as I am concerned, it lasted far too long as it is.  As I have written before, I am paying $1000 a month premium.  My wife spent a few days in the hospital.  I just got the bill.  The insurance company, Ambetter, refused to pay a dime of the $8000 hospital bill.  Of course, this does not include diagnostics and doctor bills.  I haven’t received those bills yet, but I suspect I won’t get much help there either.

To call the bill the Affordable Care Act would be a joke.  However, after paying the premiums and hospital bills from my Social Security income, I’m not laughing.  I believe the act will go down in history as the worst law ever passed by our government and it should have never been passed.  The only reason it was, was because a bribe paid to the senator from Louisiana.  The only reason it wasn’t voted out of existence was because of a rino Senator who was more interested in getting back at President Trump than he was in doing what was right.

By the way, I hear the number one thing people consider for voting is healthcare.  Considering the bomb that was dropped on us, anyone thinking of voting for a dummycrat just might want to rethink that.

If Obama got what he has coming to him, he would spend the rest of his life in a prison cell… him and the cohorts that forced that stupid law down our throats.
