Chocolate Taste Horrible

One day I was making a cake, chocolate of course.  The cake was already done and I sat it aside to cool.  Then, I started on the icing.  I had combined cocoa, butter, salt and water when, for some reason I had to pause and leave for a short time.  I can’t even remember what it was, but a child was watching me.

Before I left, I cautioned the child not to eat any of the chocolate.  I told her she wouldn’t like it anyway.  In a while, I returned and saw the expression that told me everything.  It was obvious that she didn’t listen to me.  Clearly, she just had to taste the little bit of dark chocolate in the bowl.

It is easy to understand.  I mean, who doesn’t like the taste of a chocolate bar.  That stuff in that bowl did look very inviting, even to those who know better.  However, most everyone knows that chocolate is very bitter and it has a very horrible taste.  If you taste even the smallest bit, it will contort your face.  In her case, she rushed for the faucet, turned it on.  She didn’t wait for a glass but drank straight from the tap.

Well, there was no harm done.  There was plenty left.  After mixing it into the confection sugar, I iced the cake and we both had a piece of it.

Needless to say, though, it was a well learned lesson for her.

Sometimes I think about the incident and consider that there might be an object lesson that we might take away from it…sort of like, all that glitters is not gold.  In this case, it is more like…chocolate taste horrible.  I don’t know; maybe it is a stretch.  Anyway, I still laugh from time to time when I think about it.

I hear Pelosi likes chocolate.  I wonder if she would like it if I baked her a cake.

I’m Confused

We don’t know for sure yet, but it would appear that Bernie, an independent, will represent the democrats.

There has been some conjecture that a democrat just might decide to run as third candidate, in order to prevent Bernie from becoming president.

Of course, the whole reason for letting Bernie run within the democrats was to keep him from running as a third candidate.

First I am wondering if anything was accomplished by letting Bernie run from within the democrats.  Second, I am wondering if Bernie will take office as a democrat or an independent.  Finally, I am wondering if the democrats in congress will back him or appose him.  Maybe a little of both.

Actually, it doesn’t make much difference.  They are all in such disarray that President Trump will cruise through a reelection, especially if there is a third candidate.  It is likely the reason they hoped to impeach him.  It is as they themselves said.  If they don’t impeach him, he will likely win the election.  The way things are going, even if they did remove POTUS from office, they would still lose the election.  (Now that would be embarrassing.)

They need to just face it.  When the economy is hot, it is all but impossible for the challengers to take the White House.  This is especially true when those vying for the job are so inept.  Need I really go into detail?

Naturally, there is one way they could still take the election…cheat.  They are certainly trying that too.  With illegals getting driver’s licenses, they are just a small step from registering and voting.  I also noticed the democrats like voting machines.  The reason they prefer them is that there is no paper trail to uncover their cheating.

The best way to prevent cheating is to make sure the win is so great that it is undeniable.

REPUBLICANS, LET’S VOTE.

Democrats, you can stay home.  The rest of us have it covered.

Anonymous Source

There are 3 major problems with anonymous sources:

  1. There is the possibility that they are completely fabricated.  If they are real or not, they appear the same, with one exception.  They have a tendency to confirm a convenient point of view.
  2. There is no way to challenge the source.  While the source might believe what they say, it is also possible they are mistaking.
  3. The source might be biased in many different ways.  For instance, if I were angry with someone, I might try to spread vicious rumors about him simply for revenge.

To be sure, there might be a grain of truth to what is said.  It does make it easier to sell the falsehood.

There is one more thing you might note.  The source might be completely truthful as far as it goes.  However, the source just might be withholding, or is unaware of something that might cast a different light on the situation.  let’s face it.  We have all been stuck in situations when all explanations make things sound worse.

It is a common practice among dummycrats and communists to use half-truths.  It is also a common practice among reporters and papers lacking ethics… such as The New York Times.   The truth is, I don’t believe anything from the Times, not until it is well confirmed.  This is especially true when they site anonymous sources.

An Unusual Situation

At least sense Andrew Jackson, the Dummycrats have had a candidate running for president.  Bernie Sanders is independent, not a dummycrat.  Hence the dummycrat party will not have a dummycrat in the race.

Just a thought.  I really don’t think Bernie will be the nominee.  I will say this for the man though.  He is honest as apposed to Pocahontas.  She is on record with at least four whoppers.  When the two of them had a disagreement during the most recent debate, I strongly suspect that Pocahontas was the one telling the whopper.  I believe the poor woman can’t help but lie.  I don’t know why.  Most of the lies gained her very little.  In the end, they cost her far more.  I certainly would not want to stake my life, or my country, on her being truthful.  It kind of scares me that she just might become president.

I’m of Two Minds

Which is best?

1. Dismiss the case against President Trump immediately.  After all, they have not truly charged him with so much as one crime.  After the case is dismissed, the Senate could call witnesses exposing the so-called whistle blower and Joe Biden.

2. Allow a full scale trial to go on with witnesses.  The dummycrats have far more to lose with witnesses.  After all, their presidential front runner just might be exposed of committing the very thing they are accusing the president of, abuse of power and quid-pro-quo.  Indeed Joe Biden could end up in jail.  Now that could be embarrassing.

Either way, I suspect President Trump would be the biggest beneficiary.  He just might end up running all fifty states.  Then again, probably not.  Sadly, California and New York are too far gone.  They would rather vote for a mass murderer than for President Trump.  It just must be something in the water they drink.

I guess my preference is for choice 1, though it is really a tough choice.

Oh.  By the way.  Regardless of the means and methods, they really should serve pizza to the senators during the trial.  I will help keep them awake.

 

There Is a Difference

Those who have read my past post will be surprised when I say that I hope the House impeaches President Trump.  Understand though, if they don’t, he will be assumed, “not guilty.”  On the other hand, if he is tried in the Senate, he will be proved innocent.  And, to be sure there is a difference.

Besides, it will be nice to see many of his accusers squirm when put under oath, and on the witness stand.  It will also be interesting to see how the mainstream media will paint it.  Without doubt, many of the so-called journalists will be shown for what they are.

Honesty and Intelligence

Considering all of the number of dummycrats in The House, you would think they could find one honest one to lead the impeachment investigation.  Well, then again, maybe that is expecting too much.  It does seem that knowing how to lie is a requirement for them.

At least, they should find someone with a a little intelligence.  I mean, Schiff really made an idiot out of himself when he tried to lie about what President Trump said in the phone call.  I would say he just outright lied, but that is not true.  It wasn’t even a successful lie.  It was proven to be a lie almost before he finished it.

It just goes to show.  You cannot trust the dummycrats to do anything.  They aren’t even good at being dishonest.

By the way, this another proof positive that can’t count on someone with a college degree to be smart or honest.  It is also proof positive that you can’t believe anything a dummycrat says.
