Capitalism vs Socialism

A few days ago, I went into a fast-food restaurant,  (not McDonald’s)  The person taking my order was rude and my order was not complete.  I didn’t notice it right away and considering that I was not given a receipt, I figured my chances of getting the remainder of my order improbable.  There were other problems too, but I won’t go into that.

Needless-to-say, I will not be going back to that place.  For those working in or running restaurants, or any business for that matter, it might be something you might want to remember.  I didn’t complain.  I just won’t go back.

It is the nature of capitalism.  For those who do not provide good service, they lose business, possibly, to the point of going out of business.  Those who provide a good product and good service will likely get many return customers.  It’s just common sense.

On the other hand, under socialism, people have no recourse.  The business is run by the state and if you don’t like it, it’s just too bad.  Actually, who am I kidding.  The likelihood of having a decent restaurant in the first place is quite remote.  Restaurant work is hard work.  Without reward, I know of no one who would want to work in one.  Anyone working in one would likely be there by force.  Moreover, no one would have any reason to open such a business.

The fact is, the desire for reward is what makes things work.  You take the reward away, you destroy the desire to work.  More important, you destroy the desire to risk opening a business in the first place.  Indeed, you stifle the desire to invent and develop ideas and concepts.

It is why the US develops more than half the medicines.  I mentioned earlier in one of my other posts how wonderful the devices are that generate oxygen.  At one time, diabetes was a death sentence.  After time, they developed methods of measuring blood sugar.  In the last thirty or so years, they have made great advances in this.  Nowadays, all I have to do is poke myself and put the blood on a strip.  Five seconds later, I know my sugar level.

If it weren’t for the rewards that researchers received, I would likely have to use the Ph strips that were used 30 or 40 years ago.  I don’t know.  I might not have that.  This very moment, they have many advances they are researching and testing.  Likely, within, fifty years, treatment might be as simple as implanting a pump that will sense the amount of sugar in the bloodstream and automatically supply the correct amount of insulin.

Take the rewards away from the people and the companies doing the research, and you can forget it.  We will do well to maintain what we have.

To put it blunt, socialism destroys motive.  Motive is what has brought us out of the stone age.  If you doubt me, consider what wonderful advances have been made in socialistic societies.

Some might like to suggest the Soviet Union or China.  Forget it.  All of their advances are the result of copying our advances.  They are really good at copying things.  Original ideas are something all socialists countries lack.

The really horrible thing about socialism, though, is what it does to societies.  Some, the leaders, have good food, excellent health benefits, and wonderful housing.  The rest, not so much.  It is the modern surf system, but worse.  At least in the old surf system, there was no effort to control thoughts.

Sequels

When I started my second book, “The Detailer,” I had my reservations.   Most of the sequels I’ve read or seen were rehashes of the original.  Moreover, in most cases, they were not as good.  I was determined to make sure all my sequels and all my books are never, in any way, rehashes of any  of my other books.

I also endeavor to improve the quality of each book.  Granted, I might still have problems with the grammar in my books.  Indeed, I do occasionally misuse a word.  However, no one will ever be able to accuse me of just simply rehashing any of my books.  (This is especially true with the “Mitch” series.)

However, those dummycrats don’t seem to have any problems using the same plot in all their sequels.  In no less than 5 attempts at driving President Trump out of office, they have not come up any new plots or any new story concepts yet.  Always they make the accusation.  Always, they are proved wrong.

I would say they end up with egg on their faces, but the media always come to their rescue.  In fact, they aid and abet even in the construction all of the accusations.

Their methods have gone from well planned to hastily constructed disasters.

A whistle-blower?  Please.  How much thought did they put into that one.  It is casual to the most obvious observer that he was in league with the dummycrats from the start, maybe sooner.

Only thing I can’t understand about it… how in the world do they manage to deceive so many.  Maybe it is because it is so obvious that some folks can’t believe that anyone would try such a thing.

On the other hand, maybe it is just that they want to believe it.  No one so easily deceived than those that have a desire to believe the lie.

For those who have not read it, you might want to read “The Prepper.”  I don’t know why, but it is my most successful book.  Most those who have read most of my books enjoy the most.  It is about a young man who thinks he has prepared for any eventuality.  How quickly he learns he left some of the most important things out.

One nice thing about Amazon is that all readers can read a sample without paying one dime.  Just simply click on the book you would like to sample and the first part of the book to you.  As far as I know, you can even read samples from other other authors.  Then again, why would you want to.  You have about 35 to select from that I wrote.

If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry.  You can still read the book on Windows, iPod or Android devices.  In fact, I have read a few books on my little phone that has less than a three inch screen.  For those who would prefer listening to their books, text-to-speech is enabled on all my books.  It sort of makes it easier and safer to read and drive at the same time.

Definition of a Milli-second

Some time ago, I had a laugh when I heard a definition for the millisecond as the time between when the traficlight turns green and the when the person in the car behind you honks his horn.  I suppose this is still true but we need to add another entry that just might be a little more accurate.  I have observed that it is now about the time between when someone goes on a shooting rampage and the time the dummycrats call for gun laws. (You might notice I waited a while before I wrote anything on the subject.  I actually have some respect for the survivors of those who were killed and those who were wounded.)

I find this very disrectful.  Then again, why should I expect the dummycrats to be respectful. That would require some intellegence.

It is just another reason I call them dummycrats.  None of the laws they suggest would have stopped any of the shootings.  I might add that one man in California killed two men with a knife.  Moreover, he took a gun from one of those he stabbed.  No gun law would have stopped those killings.  Moreover, had he not been stopped, he could have used the stolen gun to kill many more.

By the way, lest anyone forget, one of the most successful mass killers in this country used a truck full of fertilizer.  Two terrorists used pressure cookers and likely leaned the method on the web.

When I was in the Marines, I carried an M16 rifle, the military version of the AR15.  I suppose you might call the M16 an assault weapon, but it is capable of both semi and fully automatic.  An AR15 is not an assault rifle.  It only looks like one.  It is strictly semi-automatic.  There are many other rifles that fire semi-automatic.

The truth of the matter is, all known; the dummycrats simply want to rid the country of guns.  They don’t like the second amendment.  Actually, they don’t much like any of The Constitution.  It is why they keep trying to alter it or ignore it.  Oddly, they even use it to destroy it.  The truth is socialism is not compatible with The Constitution.  It is why the dummycrats keep trying to do away with it.

Let’s take the example of the First Amendment.  This is where you can say what you want, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their ideas.

Now I have one more definition for you: Racist.  This is when someone does or says something the dummycrats (specifically the squad) don’t like.  The label is applied automatically, sort of, like when a knee jerks when a doctor applies his little mallet to it.  By the way, using the term requires about the same amount of intelligence as the doctor’s mallet.  About the same intelligence of the dummycrat.

Aiding and Abetting

The dummycrats are guilty of aiding and abetting of the enemy, the Russians, Chinese, Iran and North Korea.  Every time they encourage the enemy, they aid them.  Every time they try to undercut the efforts of President Trump, they abet the enemy.  They are saying, “All you have to do is wait until the dummycrats get in office, things will turn to the way they were.”

Every time the dummycrats and fake news impede the building of the wall, Every time they refuse to alter the law to decrease illegal aliens, every time they aid those who are here illegally, they are aiding and abetting the cartel; they are encouraging gang members who illegally cross the borders and remain here.

Every time that someone dies from an overdose, they have contributed to their death.  Every time a woman is raped by an illegal alien, they are guilty of helping them.  And, by the way, they have helped some who have not yet arrived.  Some of the rapists are guilty before they reach the border.

Do the dummycrats or reporters feel any remorse.  No!  Most likely, the dummycrats are not capable of such a thing.  I mean, feeling guilt?  It seems to be a foreign concept to them.  As far as they are concerned, they would have to admit they are doing something wrong.  The truth is that anything that furthers their goals is a good thing, no matter who gets hurt.

All the above hardly surprises me.  After all, it is all in their guidebook, the  Communist Manifesto.  The part that really bothers me is that there are Republicans in cahoots with them too.  Nearly half of those who call themselves republicans are just as guilty and it doesn’t seem to bother them either.  Indeed, they seem to be proud of it.

Go figure?

Just remember, it’s not really about communism or socialism.  It is about power.  They want one world government and they want to be in control of it.  Nothing else matters.  World dominance was the dream of virtually every dictator since the beginning of history.

They love to belittle the memory of George Washington.  It would do them much good to remember that when George was offered the throne, he quickly turned it down.  Very few in his position would have.  It was likely the first step into the best and greatest government this world has ever seen.  Invariably, those who successfully lead a revolution become the leader of the new government.  Washington only accepted the office presidency after the forming of the government.  Even then, he insisted on stepping down after two terms.  It’s likely something Roosevelt should have learned from.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

The Truth About Government

If I may, I would like to make a statement based on something I heard Dr. J. Vernon McGee made one time.

The best government in the hands of bad people is horrid.  Even, it will tend to get worse.

The worst government in the hands of good, God-fearing people will tend to be good.  Moreover, it will tend to get better.

Keeping this in mind, is it better to put the control of the government in the hands of people who want to destroy our government as we know it.  After all, even Obama promised hope and change.  I didn’t see much hope but I saw a lot of change… all in the wrong direction.  Do we really want to repeat that mistake and put the country of communists or are we going to learn from the last mistake?

Something to Look Forward to

What three things do San Francisco, Chicago and New York have in common?  That’s right.  Their governments are led by dummycrat liberals and all three are in desperate financial straits.  Indeed, almost, if not all major cities in this country now have dummycrats in charge.  Moreover, the longer they have been in charge, the worse off they are.  By the way, their situation is only getting worse day by day.

Also, if an honest person was to analyze the state leaderships, they would likely find the same pattern.  Look at New York and California.  I lived in California pretty much until I was twenty.  Ronald Reagan was the last true Republican governor there.

When Ronald Reagan took charge, he set the state on financial solid ground and poverty was almost non-existent.  Since he left office there, it has done nothing but go downhill.

I had some hope when Arnold Schwarzenegger went into office.  I must admit he disappointed me.  Well, I guess I can’t complain.  I had long left the state behind.  I found it too crowded among other things.

I must say that I’m not sorry I left.  Per capita, it now has the largest number living in poverty.  Most of the major cities have folks living on the streets, which causes the risk of all kinds of disease.  Though I miss the weather, the beaches and mountains, I hate to see what the dummycrats have done to my home state.  Apparently, I’m not the only one.  People, those that are able, are leaving the state.  By the way, they are also leaving Illinois, New York (especially the city), New Jersey, etc.

Now it would appear the dummycrats want to do the same thing to the country as they did to California and New York.  They aren’t happy messing up their own states.  They want to ruin the rest of the country too.  I suspect they will have some success with it, much to my dismay.  However, hopefully, they will discover the error of their ways before too long.  Otherwise, we will all have to put up with the same type of life as those in New York, or even California.

If it were just for a while, it might not be so bad.  However, one of the first things those dummycrats want to do is destroy our national defenses.  They also want to open our borders.  After a few years of that, there would be no reversing things.  The US as we know it will cease to exist.  Instead of living like those in California, we will be living like those in Russia or maybe China.  Eventually, we just might have to put up with lives like those in Venezuela.  Instead of the paradise the dummycrats are promising us we will live in the equivilant of a prison or even a dungeon.  At that point, they will want to build walls.  Only, instead of keeping others out, they will be needed to keep us in.

Now I ask you… is that something to look forward to?

“The New Green Deal?”

First, there is nothing new about communism.  It is as old as Marx, though it has been called by many different things.

Second, though it has been tried dozens of times, it has never succeeded.  I’m not saying it usually failed or even most of the time.  It has always failed.

Finally, it is a means to an end.  Vicious people have used it to gain control over people.  Stalin, might have been the first, but he was not the last.  In the name of the ideal society, he killed millions, many of them farmers.  Indeed, he killed more than Hitler.  History is full of people who promised the heaven and presented hell.  In each and every case, it has ended in a dictatorship where even thoughts are controlled.  What I say has been true 100% of the time.

In each case, those who rose to power climbed over the poor and abused.  A person would have to be blind to see that it is the same method they would like to use in the US.  Of course, they say they are different than the dictators.  Yet, they have no scruples.  They use lies, deception and trickery in every direction.  It is not to make things better for us, but rather to acquire power for them.  If they succeed, they will live in luxery while the rest of us suffer.  It is the pattern.  They don’t care about the poor and abused.  They are nothing more than tools.  When they have control, they will be worse off than before.  By the way, so will the rest of us.
