How Many Libs to Screw in a Light Bulb?

One cannot claim I don’t believe in recycling. This is one of the most recycled jokes ever and a bad one at that. The answer is casual to the most obvious observer. Actually, that’s kind-of an old twist of words too, but I kinda like it. On the other hand, my wife is more than tired of it and reminds frequently.

At any rate, the obvious answer is zero. No self repecting lib would replace a light bulb. They love stumbling around in the dark. Those few who do like light, prefer paying someone else. It is below their dignity.

Speaking of light, the vast majority of libs deny the greatest Light of all. In John 8:12 Jesus proclaims to all, “I am the light of the world.” Instead of accepting the Light, they defiantly prefer stumbling around in the darkness.

Worse, they pretend to be of great vision and every chance they get, lead us into destruction.

Cutting Costs

Joe says it’s not his fault. He says that there’s nothing he can do about it. Yet since he occupied the Oval Office, things have been going up, fast…gas, milk, cars, rent, cable, dining out, etc, etc.

I’m retired now so I thought I was immune somewhat from the increase in gas costs. Wow! Was I wrong! I mean I only fill my 13 gallon tank every other week but it over costs twice as much to. Every time I go into the grocery store, it costs me $130 or more to get out…and we visit the local restaurants quite often.

The realization has hit me. It’s time to cut costs or our bank accounts will start shrinking. So I’ve started preparing a list of things we won’t need.

1st. Cable and internet. They are really nice but we don’t need them. Dropping them will say more $150 a month. I’ll have to rely on the old antenna for entertainment. Oddly, I’ll miss the DVR more than the stations. Other than a few news stations, I watch very little. Though I must admit I will miss watching Hannity, I can still listen to him 3 hours on the radio. Besides all this, they raise their costs every now and without my permission.

2nd. Cell phones. This one is painful for a number of reasons. Mostly I, it is a matter of emergencies. For instance, if I need to call a tow truck or I have an accident. The alternative to T-mobile is going with the cheapest company I can find.

3rd. We will need to eat at home more. I don’t mind cooking. I just don’t like the clean up. Besides, with just the two of us, we end up wasting a lot. I hate that. It rubs me the wrong way. Well, the going green folks would like it. It would cut back on my fuel usage. On the other hand, those at the local eateries wouldn’t like losing my business. On the other hand the cable company will not miss me. In Indeed, they sort of act like they want to get rid of me.

Beyond that, I guess I will have to go back to work. I’ve already considered that option. I’d already be punching time clock but my wife panics when she’s left alone. I guess if Joe keeps running things, I’ll have to figure out something.

The Biggest Fear of Our Forefathers

As they were froming the federal government, one fear drove them more than anything else. It is the reason for having 3 separate parts:legislative, executive and judicial. Each has its own powers and limits. That way, the hope was that no one person or group of people would exceed their authority.

In addition, they added 10 amendments. If you study them carefully, you’ll see that, while each has its purpose, collectively they have 1 purpose, to protect the individuals from the government.

Now, why did they feel the need for protection from our government. It’s because they were afraid of the tyranny of the majority.

Without the bill of rights, the majority could take control of the government. Then, ironically it could be ruled by a small minority. If you doubt the fear to be valid, look at what we have now, a one party rule.

The hope of the forefathers was that a free press would keep them in check. On the contrary, they are doing all they can to assist the overthrow of our constitution.

Now the Bill of Rights is on the verge of being trodden under the feet of socialists. They hate freedom of religion and they are destroying our rights to have our say. They want to remove our right to defend ourselves. I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture.

Still, I must add one more remark i heard lately. It would seem that the dems interpret the 10th amendment as reserving all powers not specified in the Constitution to the democrat party.

Maybe it’s a joke, but I am sure they would accept said power without a second thought.

To be sure, we just might be realizing the tyranny of the majority within the decade. It was the primary fear of the framers of our Constitution and today, the threat stands before us and it isn’t even well hidden. What a legacy to leave for our children, especially considering the freedom we inherited.

A Question About Safety

I hear all these suggestions to improve safety, AFTER all the shootings. It brings to mind my question, just how many of these victims would still be alive if we continued to have Christian prayer in our schools?

Just 1 minute of prayer daily might have saved, maybe half those killed. Who knows? It might have even saved some of the killers.

You may emphatically said no. The truth is that none of us knows this side of infinity. Still, how horrible it would be to find out that 2 minutes of sincere prayer each day would have saved them all.

I just wish we didn’t have to die to realize the truth.

Then another question comes to mind. What if we did find out? What if somehow God told us. Would it make a difference? Would we begin prayer in our schools? I mean some folks are very defiant. Some folks pretend they care but their only interest is power. They feign interest in saving lives while their real interest is in taking our guns and other Constitutional rights.

As an aside, I find it interesting that the same people who are in favor of gun control for the safety of our children are also in favor of open borders. I mean they want to allow killers, people carrying deadly diseases, deadly drugs and human slavery to stream south to north at rates none of us know.

One aspect we can and do measure are the deaths from fentenyl. Let’s face it. The loss of life due to all shootings is horrible but it is miniscule as compared to those killed by drugs.

Far Right?

One should not lump those who follow President Trump in with the “Far” right. To put 70 million people in the category of the fringe elements is incongruous. Technically, 70 million people cannot be on the fringe by definition. For if the movement contains 70 million, it is not a fringe but a major sector, that is at least nearly as many as those who voted for Joe. (As a note, as I said before, he does not deserve to be called president. He is a liar, a killer and mostly, a puppet. See prior posts.)

Moreover, let me remind one and all, that Hitler, who is considered by many as extreme right was really a socialist. In German, the word socialist is in the acronym NAZI. Trump was neither far right nor a NAZI. The NAZIs hated the truth and burned books. Trump was indeed the victim of such treatment. Anyone who spoke well of him, anyone who suggested that the election was improper gets immediately canceled. That is the way of the socialists, rather communist or NAZI. It is the way of those who would be royalty.

Let me post this reminder, rather a fraudulent election or not, there were irregularities and there were laws that were broken. It is not wrong to point this out. Indeed, it is wrong to ignore them as the FOCs and RINOs did.

Debris !

After our recent snow, our trees lost several limbs. In itself this wasn’t the half. Some of them, some of the biggest ones landed on my storage shed. What a mess. Oh, yes, a couple of them totally mutilated my gate, which cost me me $200 and a couple of afternoons.

The steel shed, though it is now useless, did protect everything inside from physical damage. I am now considering 3 or 4 options to replace it. The thing is, no matter, I must first remove the ton, literally, of debris on and around it.

I looked here and there for some assistance, but it is to small a disaster to call FEMA. It’s one of those in between things. It’d be, maybe better had it been worse. (Now figure that irony)

So, every now and then, when I feel like it and weather permits, I take my rake, shovel and electric chainsaw out and work until I can’t. At 72, that’s not long.

For those that think I’m complaining, I’m not.

I saw a middle-aged man shoveling debris in Ukraine. He has every right to complain. He has a right to complain about Putin and his army. He has a right to complain about politicians who can and should have helped, but are more concerned about climate change. He had a lot to complain about.

Instead, he goes about his task. He is possibly feeling the pains of loss of loved ones and/or friends. He might possibly be wishing someone had sent more weapons and planes. It is not likely, but possible he wished the dems hadn’t cheated on our election. Even he likely knows that there wouldn’t be a war if Trump had been in the Oval Office. He would know that because Putin waited for Biden. Only then was there war.

No, I don’t complain about a little weather. There are many things that are far worse.

Just Something About Tantrums

You ever been out in public and see a toddler yelling, kicking and flailing his arms wildly… in other words throwing a tantrum. Though I have no memory of it, I likely threw my share of them. It’s natural for a child. They must be taught to behave themselves or the parent will have real problems as he gets older.

Normally, I keep myself out of the business of other states and certainly other nations.

However, in this case I must record my observations. The Canadian truckers start a demonstration and the PM decided to throw an outright tantrum.

Mind you, I am not trying to tell them who should run their country, especially considering who is running ours. I mean it is their choice. If they want a toddler for a leader, that’s their choice. It’s just an observation. Apparently his parents never taught him that it makes him and those who voted for him look childish.

Woke Coke

Just figured I’d mention. The last two times I went shopping, they shelves were full of Coke products, not so much Pepsi. I had to settle for the plastic bottles of Diet Pepsi instead of the cans. It is sort of a shame. My fridge is designed for cans. By the way, they didn’t have too many six-pack bottles left.

Do you suppose the customers are registering complaints about them being woke. Do you suppose that the folks at Coke realize it. I do find it odd. Coke always advertised themselves as being family friendly, not criminal friendly. Oh, well. Maybe they will catch on. Maybe not.
