Crazy Nuts

It is the title of one of my books. It is about a woman who was taught not to call people dumb or stupid. She was told it was impolite. Therefore, she resorted to crazy for some and crazy nuts for the the few who were the worst.

This afternoon, I saw a news story that fit the bill for this. Apparently, in an effort to raise her standings, Kamala decided to stage an event in which she pretended to talk to children about space and the moon. Somehow, word got out that the children were actors. Now that falls into the category of crazy nuts.

However, they were hired from a Canadian firm, which of all things was named Sinking Ships. That exceeds crazy nuts. This falls into the category of dumb on top of stupid. Or is it stupid on top of dumb. I am sure you get the idea.

And then Kamala and her cohorts believe they are smarter than us so we should blindly follow their lead.

By the way, has anyone noticed how Kamala is doing with the border these days? Maybe after this above stunt, it is a good thing she is staying away from it. I don’t know how, but she just might make it worse.

A Much Better Compromise

I understand the Minority Leader’s concern for buckling here. There was an awful lot of pressure on those two senators. However, he should not have completely given in here. He should have made it contingent on restoring the border to the way it was under Trump. He should have required the walls to be completed. That would have accomplished something, maybe. It actually would have saved lives. Moreover, it would have exposed Biden’s open borders.

Wait a minute. I don’t think that McConnell would have liked that. If my memory serves me, he was not so much in favor of the wall. There were a few republicans who didn’t like the idea of cutting off the cheap labor.

I guess he could have used the alternative. He could have insisted on continuing the pipelines, drilling and fracking, including New York. This would have helped a lot. It would have helped to bring down the price of oil. It would have put people back to work and it would have made the US energy independent again.

Then again, the FOCs might not like that. They like us dependent on others, especially Russia and China. They might have preferred to let us default. Either that, or the dems would have done the increase in debt by themselves.

At least that would have exposed the FOCs for what they are, a bunch of power hungry characters that would prefer to allow death than to permit energy independence.

Terminology

The FOC folks don’t like us referring to illegal aliens as illegal aliens. Sorry FOC types. That is what they are. It is the way they are defined by law.

Before they step across the border, they are aliens. The instant they cross the border they are illegal aliens. Moreover, they have broken the law. By law they are subject to incarceration. In truth, they should be. In truth, they should then be returned to their own country immediately. That is the way the law says it. As usual, the FOCs only enforce the laws they want to enforce. That is what makes them Friends Of Criminals. In the truest since, the FOCs are criminals too. After all, they are aiding and abetting criminals, and not just illegal aliens. Sometimes they aid and abet legal aliens in breaking the law by encouraging to vote. Then again, they also aid citizens breaking the law as in looting, arson and assault. It is sort of what they do in their effort for power.

By the way, why isn’t Fauci in prison. He has millions of murders to his credit.

Out of sight…

It would seem that Biden believes in the adage “out of sight, out of mind.” He managed to make that place under that bridge look absolutely as if no one was ever there, let alone fifteen thousand.

However, the truth is, just because we cannot see them does not mean that he dealt with the problem. He simply hid it… OUT OF SIGHT.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Remembering

You Forgot to Remember

Some of you might not yet know that I have an interest in old songs.  Something happened that reminded me of an old song.  I had almost forgotten it, oddly, because the main line in the song is:

You promised to forget me not, but you forgot to remember.

The song was very popular and I have no idea who first recorded it.  Both Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore had recordings and likely half a dozen more had successful recordings.

Its words do suggest a twist, so to speak.  Nonetheless, it has happened to me a few times.  I have promised to do something, only to forget to remember.  Then too, how about all the friends I used to know who have become faint memories.

Sometimes, I think about looking them up, but I can’t remember their last names.  I only called them by their first names.  Besides, at 72, I don’t remember so well and I had a bad memory for names in the first place.

I thought over the song and figured we have many reasons why we forget things.

First, memories fade.  To some degree, this is a good thing.  Many bad things happen to us and the memory fading does help us cope with them in the end.  Though, it does not always work that way.  My mother died when I was five and I remember every detail as if it were yesterday.  Oddly, it does cause me more grief today than then.  I won’t try to figure it out, other than it is something of a comfort to me too.

Second, memories that are handed down from one generation to the next are rarely incompletely passed along.  In the case of Israel, one generation would learn to obey the God.  Then the next generation would forget him and practice the exact things God told them not to.

Today, nations build statues and memorials.  Whenever I see a statue of someone, it reminds me of what the person did and just why I should remember him.  We also have memorials for WWII and Vietnam War.  Some of us remember.  Some don’t.  Some would prefer to forget the Vietnam War.  They consider it a dark part of our history.

Then again, I got to thinking of the Trade Towers.  It has been but 20 years and already people are forgetting.  They forget the way people jumped, knowing it was a choice of dying by fire or by the fall.  Most preferred the fall.  Each time a person hit the ground it made a distinct thud.

It is as I said, the memories do fade.  Then too it has been a generation.  The history teachers likely spend no more than a day or two about it.  The younger people don’t realize the full scale of what happened and the whys and wherefores.

Even for those who see the memorial, it does not set in the mind the way the actual experience does.  For those who don’t see the memorial, it is even easier to forget.

On the day of the event and for many days after, many promised to forget it not.  The problem is that they forgot to remember.

A few days ago we pulled out of Afghanistan.  Very few even know why we went in there.  Regardless, it was long ago.  Why should we be bothered with it today?

Let me tell you a little story and it just might suggest why we should remember.

In 1968 I graduated boot camp at MCRD San Diego.  Eventually, I was given orders to go to NAS Memphis.  On arrival at LAX, I checked my baggage and went straight back to the gate.  No one asked me for a ticket.  No one cared.  If I had wanted I could have gone to the gate without any need to travel.

You can’t do that today.  You have to show your boarding pass and ID to get to the gate, and by the way, you must also submit to a complete search.

Some say we have stopped terrorism, but we haven’t.  They have succeeded at their goal.  They have disrupted our way of living.  They have all but destroyed our way of life.

So now, my family cannot see me off or meet me at the gate and I can’t take my fingernail clippers along with me.

We need to remember.  We must not forget to remember.  If nothing else, maybe that extra line at the airport will help remind us each time we take a plane.

Diplomacy

It would seem that Biden thinks he can bring back all of the American citizens in Afghanistan Let’s hope he succeeds before the Taliban starts using them for bargaining chips. The bad thing is, Joe has no bargaining chips.

Let me explain. If I should meet a man in a dark alley that is a foot taller than me who outweighs me by 50 pounds and knows Kung Fu, I might try diplomacy. I might try my powers of persuasion on the man. However, if I have a nine millimeter in the holster in the small of my back, my methods of diplomacy just might be simpler and more fruitful. More important, I just might be able to walk away from the incident.

The problem with Biden is that he does not seem to understand this method of diplomacy. He seems to think that if he says please, the will graciously concede. Maybe he figures if he gets down on his knees and pleads, they will turn all of them over.

To be sure, Biden does have many deadly weapons that he can use. The hitch is, now they do not believe he will use them until he uses them.

It is as I said in a previous post, the more the opponent fears you, the less likely it is that you will have to fight…the less likely it is that the enemy will suffer loss… the less likely Biden would lose one American life.

It is too late to try to bluff. Any bluff that Biden would try would likely be called, which means lives will likely be lost on both sides. It is why it was called a deterrent.

Let’s face it, it would do me little good for me to pull out the nine-milometer gun on my attacker if I won’t use it and my foe comes at me with flying hands and feet. To be sure, if President Eisenhower decided he would not respond to a nuclear attack, then all the missiles in all the world likely would not have stopped the Soviets from launching an attack and we would all be speaking Russian now, those of us that were left.

Fully Automatic Assault Rifles

I don’t know but I suspect there is one aspect that few have considered as a result of the fiasco in Afghanistan. Consider: we left thousands of M16 rifles behind during the Biden retreat. Some of those just might end up being for sale to those coming up through the Mexican border.

May I remind one and all that the M16 is a true assault rifle. It is able to fire fully automatic with the flip of a switch. It looks very similar to an AR15, a semi automatic which the FOCs are trying to outlaw. I have fired an M16 fully automatic as part of my training. It takes a second or two to fire twenty bullets. Magazines are available that hold 70 bullets, and it takes about a second and a half to change magazines.

No truly law abiding citizen would ever try to buy something like that, but the criminal element would certainly love to get their hands on a few of those things, along with a few thousand bullets. I would say I can only imagine what the criminal type could do with something like that, but I can’t. Three or four men with these things could do things even I can’t imagine, especially if they know how to use them.

So now, we can thank our fearless leader for the possibility of the criminal element using M16s on our police or crowds or whatever they can imagine. However, it doesn’t end there. There are likely also machine guns and 50 caliber guns that can shoot through engine blocks and hit a target a mile away. I would suspect there are also a few other things in there, like anti tank weapons and M79 grenade launchers.

I am going to terminate my imagination there. It already bothers me far to much. Regardless, if these things find their way north of the border, we’ll know it. If they are used on the Mexican authorities, they will know it. If any of this makes its into Canada, they will definitely know it.

It is the sort of thing that happens when people like Biden don’t think ahead. Well, in this case, he likely was not thinking at all. YEP! This mistake will not go away with an eraser! I sure wish it could.

Polls??

I just saw a recent poll on TV in which Biden’s ability to deal with problems just dipped under 50%. I really don’t understand it. I mean it is obvious that the man hasn’t a clue about anything other than which way the wind blows. My question remains, how in the world are his polls staying so high?

I figure it one of two ways. Either the folks in the country are lacking basic common sense or those pollsters are really bending the results. I figure, for the most part, it is the pollsters. However, there are a number of folks in this country that lack basic reasoning.

Let’s face it, the man is King Midas in reverse. Everything he touches turns to a quagmire. The problems he is causing cannot totally be undone. He is causing suffering, death and he is empowering those who want to destroy us. Their desire is to kill and or enslave us.

Those who voted for the man have a big part in his failures. As everything falls apart and they may ask who caused it, They can simply look in the mirror for their answer.

It is no wonder Kamala has gone into hiding. Even she knows better than to have anything to do with Biden.

YELL IT FROM THE MOUNTAINS!

There is a long history of communications. In Africa, I have been lead to believe they used drums. A couple of centuries ago, the Indians used smoke signals. In European countries, various methods were used: light generated from fire, horns or simply yelling from the mountain tops. From what I understand, that is how yodeling began. I don’t know, just what I heard.

Regardless, it does seem to be effective, assuming you conveniently have a mountain around. It wouldn’t work well in places like Kansas or Florida. I suppose drums and smoke signals would have worked better there.

Some might find it odd, but ships used to use flags… in two ways. They used semaphores, that is, a man using the position of two flags to spell out words. I would guess this method is rare today, but men learned the method up until a few years ago. Nowadays, they are more apt to use radio or, during radio silence, lights.

I must admit my ignorance of how, but sailors also hung flags from the masts of their ships. I don’t know if the flags represented words or letters, maybe both. None the less, the light, the flags, the smoke and the sound all had their simple limits. The message source had to be seen or heard.

Sometimes, in the old days, when a message was particularly important, they yelled it from the mountains. It did have its limits, but it was effective. They used relays. One person would call from one mountain, then when he heard it, another person would relay it from his mountain. It was faster than carrying a message by hand or even by Pony Express.

So it is that there is now an important message, one worthy of yelling from the mountain tops. There is a new version of the China virus. It is spread faster and more easily. The number of cases is going up fast.

And so it is that the message is being spread far and wide, “Get your shot!” The warning is being distributed far and wide, “Wear your mask! You must protect yourself and you must protect you children!”

In one case it was reported that already three teachers from one school came down with it. The hitch is that the school was not yet in session. The news report I heard did not say if the teachers were wearing their masks. My guess is that they did not wear their mask 24/7. It is just impractical.

There are problems with the messages. First, those yelling about the increase in cases, say nothing about those coming across the border spreading the disease all over the country. Every place they set foot, they are a biological bomb. I wonder why they leave that part out. Could it be that it is inconvenient to their goals? Could it be that they just don’t know about it? Do they know how saying the one thing while ignoring the other both nullifies the message and makes the messenger look pretty dopey?

Then there is the message about the mask. It would seem that it is horribly important that everyone over 2 should wear a mask to stop the spread.

Now I find that interesting. The China virus has been in our presence for over a year now. People seem to assume that they can slow the spread with the masks, but no one knows it. Not so much as one scientific study has verified it. A doctor, the one that should be put in prison says it, and it is taken as fact. (By the way the doctor has lied a lot.)

You would think after a year, someone would have done a study. Maybe someone did. It is possible. If they didn’t come out with the results they wanted, they just might put the results in the circular folder. I mean, if I were selling masks, really neat and expensive ones like Pelosi wears, and I did a study that showed that the results were negligible, maybe I would pretend I never did the study.

On the other hand, if I were an FOC, I might not want anyone to know the masks are not effective. It would remove the reason for my message I have been yelling for the last year. By the way, it just might also make me look pretty dumb.

Maybe it is time for those FOCs to get down off those mountains and seal the border, the real source of the new cases.

BUILD THE WALL!!

New Republicans??

The dems like to import democrat voters. Maybe we need to start importing republican voters. All we need to do is send a team down to Central America, train a bunch of them about the benefits of voting republican. Then, bring them north for half the going price.

I think we could pick up a few republican voters and maybe make some money too. I think it would work. It does have one problem with it.

We don’t do things like that. The dems do– without hesitation. I guess that says something about dems and republicans.

By the way, it would have one more problem. It would take the dems vary little time to figure out how to keep our immigrants south of the border.
