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.

LET’S ALL COMPROMISE!!

The dems say they like compromise. I have an idea for a good one. Indeed, it would just almost be like compromising with themselves.

They are going over backwards to make sure everyone gets immunized. Let’s start with those who are coming from south of the border. The compromise is simple. Before anyone is released north of the border, they must be immunized. To be sure, that would drastically decrease those running around without being immunized.

There would be two hitches. First, they would need to wait until the shot takes effect, about 15 days. For those taking two shots, that would need to be doubled. It is not all bad tough. During the time they were being held in detention south of the border, they could be checked for other diseases too; such as TB, smallpox, measles. etc. Who knows, we just might catch a few with AIDS. This prompts the question. Do we really need someone else in this country spreading AIDS? It is one of those multiplying diseases you know. One gives it to five, five to twenty-five and so forth. You let one in with AIDS, it is sort of like letting in a few thousand.

In the end, the country would have a larger percentage of people immunized, which is just what the dems are demanding to save lives.

However, the FOCs would never permit it. Nothing is more important than getting those future democrat voters in states like Texas. When given the choice between voters and lives, getting more voters has priority. If we start immunizing, it would drastically slow down the flow and nothing but nothing can stand in the way of the flow, not even a reasonable compromise.

Besides, what would happen if they found out that some were criminals and/or terrorists. They would have to be sent back or maybe imprisoned. That would be bad news for the FOCs. After all, they are the Friends Of Criminals.

There would be one more thing the FOCs would have to admit to as well, the number of folks entering the country. Do you have any idea just how big the staff would have to be to implement the compromise at the current level of illegal immigration.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Call It What It Is: Theft

Many want to dance around the subject with fancy words. They try to invent reasons and concepts that just aren’t there.

When a male takes part in a sport intended for women, it is theft, simple and out outright.

In the least, they steal a trophy. At worst, they steal money in the form of scholarships. No one can convince me otherwise.

Moreover, any college that would recognize such a thing is aiding and abetting in the crime. Sorry, I don’t like sugarcoating sin in euphemisms . God said “Thou shalt not steal.” and this is outright stealing.

Those who take part in the theft might think that they are winners but they deceive themselves, perhaps the worst kind of deceit. Those who assist the thieves show their lack of respect for God and women. They too are part of the deceit.

So, if you’re really honest with others and yourselves call it what it is: Theft.

All Mixed Up

The more we become like others, the less we will be like us. And, at one time we were pretty good.

One of the things I noticed over the years is that people in the Soviet block would do just about anything to get into the United States. In fact, there were some who were desperate to do anything, period.

Many risked their lives to get from Cuba to the US. Indeed, many did die before reaching our shores and given the choice, they might do it again.

There must be a reason. There must be something here that they could not get in Russia.

Now of all things, there are people here who want to change the United States into something resembling the Soviet Union. Try figuring that one out.

As for me, it’s simple. Those folks wanting a socialist republic of the United States are simply mixed up. They haven’t got their heads on straight. I figure about four or five years living in China, as the Chinese do, just might help them understand what freedom is. Indeed, if they were to move to Cuba permanently, they just might start thinking of a way to make a seaworthy raft.

The US is a far cry from perfect. I will be one of the first to admit that. But the reason people want in here is that it is by far the best anyone has come up with.

For decades, the US was the example that the other nations tried to follow. Is it now smart for us to follow their example so that we would regress to what they are?

Sorry, but every time I hear the statement that we are the only country that does not have socialized health care, it makes me sick. What is it that they have that we don’t? Until Pelosi and those dummycrats started muddling with our health care system, we had the best health care in the world. Everyone came here to our doctors and our hospitals. Now, not so much.

Before the dummycrats and the unions we had the world’s most productive country in the world. Today, not so much. Everyone seems to want to go to China to have things made while our labor sets with their hands out wanting food stamps and other government assistants. And, of course, the dummycrats are in favor of strengthening the unions and their crooked leaders.

The more we become like others, the less we will be like us. And, at one time we were pretty good.

What’s Next?

Many people speak about the monuments and statues.  The question I ask is, “What’s next?”

In every country where tyrants took over, it was always preceded by one thing, the destruction of books.  Hitler and his minions burned them by the millions.  Lenin had bond fires fueled by the pages of the past.  However, for him it was not so difficult.  He was only taking over from another tyrant, the Tzar.  Many had the desire to forget his rule.

The current communists have the desire to take over this country, but they are starting with the monuments and statues, which is a real part of our history: good or bad.  Indeed, they ignore that good which they did while magnifying their small faults.  To be sure, they preach about the spec in Jefferson’s eye while they ignore the beam in their own eyes.

My question has an answer, the books.  They will begin destroying the books.  Mark my words.  Very likely, within the decade they will start removing books from our shelves and they will persecute those who write anything contrary to their gods.

They will not need laws or rules.  Political correct will be all they will need.  No one has the will or the power to stand against the tirade of those who love evil and hate good.

Eventually, of coarse, they will go after the one book they hate most and the one person Whom is the main target of their hate.  They have already removed God from our schools.  It is a matter of time before they will eliminate Him completely, or so it would seem.  To be sure, they will prevent the publishing of the Bible and any of its teachings.

Without doubt, it will lead to the downfall of the biggest and best experiment ever tried.  It is their design.  It is their goal.  If and when this happens, it will be one of the world’s greatest disasters.  When they take God out of our lives, hate and those who love hate will prevail.  It began with compromises.  As the compromises continue, it will end in our downfall.  The compromises never move toward the good, only toward the communists and their goals.

When they win, we will lose.

 

The Problem with Paradise

I was 7 when we moved to a city in Orange County, Calif.  At the time, it was just about as close as a person could get to paradise on earth.  The temperature was mild just almost year-round.  The area was relatively crime-free and there was always something to do.

Sometimes we went to the beach.  At other times, we went to the park.  There were many to choose from.  By the way, we could also go to the playgrounds of nearby schools.  The lawyers had not yet ruined things for us.  Nowadays, playing on school playgrounds is forbidden.  The schools are afraid of being sued.

So now they build fences around the schools in an attempt to keep the kids from using the playground equipment, which by the way works only marginally.  Most kids know how to climb fences.  However, putting up fences does decrease the liabilities of the schools.

The problem was that people kept visiting the area.  Then, when they realized how nice the area was, they decided to move there.  During the time from the early 50s, people started moving to California, and especially the Orange County area.

By the way, as if that wasn’t enough, people also started moving in from Mexico… illegally.

Now the area is marginally overpopulated.  It is no longer a paradise.  If I may paraphrase Yogi, no one goes there anymore.  It is too crowded.  It is why I moved out of the state.  Don’t get me wrong.  I do miss the weather.  I certainly miss the beaches.  In this part of the country, it is hard to find a place to swim unless you own your own pool.

It just is that there are too many people in Orange County.  Worse yet, most of those who moved in are dummycrats.  The whole state is being run by people who aren’t qualified to run a birthday party, let alone a state or city.

It is the problem with paradise.  Given enough time, too many of the wrong people will move in and destroy it.  It is true at the city level, the county level, the state level and certainly the country level.

Those seeking the paradise are the vary ones who seek its destruction.  They seek to destroy our constitution, our history and our culture.  Once they are gone, then paradise is gone.

Still, to most of those in this world, the United States is paradise.  However, some want to make sure that won’t last long.  They have opened the borders and invited one and all to enter.  Soon we will wake up and realize that we all would be better off going somewhere else.

The problem with that is that… there will be nowhere else.  The moon is not an option, not yet anyway.

A Little Thought

I wished I could say I thought of it but I didn’t.  It was on CBS’s Seal Team.  Loosely quoted, it is corruption and indifference are powerful allies.  Although I certainly agree, I would add two words.  Corruption and indifference are powerful and dangerous allies.

Let’s all remember to vote.  If we don’t, we will most certainly face corruption and likely lose the precious right to vote.  Even the smallest vote is important, even for the proverbial dog catcher.  In some ways, the small contest is even more important.  The smaller the number of voters, the more that your vote counts.

However, even in the big elections, you vote counts.  Think of it.  according to Clinton, President Trump lost based on popular vote.  A few more votes for Trump and they would not have that argument.  Moreover, every vote sends a signal, a mandate.  Had president Trump won by ten million, we just might have our wall now and maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to pay 1000 dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.  Because he lacked the large margin, he lacked the political capital.  He even had to face republicans, of all things.

To be sure, there were three major reasons that President Trump won the election: taxes, the wall (as well as immigration), Iran and the globalists.  Under the heading of globalists, we can include, the Paris accord the TPP.  May I remind one and all, any time we enter a treaty, that treaty exceeds our constitution.  For that reason alone, all treaties should be entered with great care.  In these treaties, the US would be giving up a much of our sovereignty and we would gain nothing.  It would have been a big step toward one world government.  That might be good, but for one thing.  That government would likely be run by very corrupt people, as the UN is today.

Remember, a vote for a dem is a vote for globalism, more regulation and less freedom.  It is not just important to beat them at the ballot box, but we must send them a message that we don’t like a government that takes our money, gives it to the like of Iran and then tells us what to think.

Real Treasure

I heard an interview of Trace Adkins on TV a few years back.  For those that know me, this will sound strange.  I am not a country/western music fan, though there are a few songs I do like by country singers.  At any rate, the question was put to him, “Do you buy gold?”  The obvious reason for the question was asked in relation to any prepping that he might do in the event of disaster.

Casually, Mr. Adkins replied, “No.  I can’t eat gold.  I buy land, seed and lead.”

Now there is a man with some real common sense.  If things get bad, the man that has gold will easily part with it for a loaf or two of bread.

Repeatedly, I hear these guys on TV trying to hawk their silver and gold on TV.  If the gold is worth so much, why do they wan to sell it?  Personally, I see three problems with this.  Invariably, I will always have to pay more for the gold than what it is worth.  In the event that I sell it, I no longer have any treasure.  Moreover, no one will ever pay me what the gold is worth.  Finally, gold, in a true disaster won’t have any value at all.  You can’t eat it.

On the other hand, if I am the only one around with grain, I can pretty much set my price.

The books are full of stories of men seeking treasures.  The truth is frequently we already have the real treasures.  Here in this country we have a real treasure that is generally overlooked and taken for granted.  Our founding fathers paid for it, many with their lives, many with their limbs.  Many have fought and died to hold onto the treasure.  By now, I am sure most of you know the treasure of which I speak, freedom… also known as liberty.  Since the Revolutionary War, this country has not know tyranny.  There are few countries in this world that can truly say that today.  …Certainly not Russia.  …Certainly not China.  …and most certainly not Iran.

Of all the treasures on this earth, it is likely the one treasure most worth fighting for.  Yet so few are willing to fight for it.  Worse yet, there are those who stand in the way of those who are willing to fight for it.  To be sure, remember, it is far easier to maintain the freedom we have than to fight for the freedom we lose.

I write this because there are those who want to take our treasure from us.  They don’t want us to have it.  They want to run our lives and tell us what to do and what not to do.  They want to tell us how to raise our children and they want to teach our children the way tyranny.

I ask you, what good is gold if you can’t buy anything with it.  What good is security if you are being told what to think.

I refer you back to the above quote.  The land and seed is good for survival.  The problem is that there are always people trying to take your treasure.  So.  To hold onto the land and seed, a person must also have lead… and the willingness to use it.

For sure, the more I think of Trace Adkins’ words, the more true they ring.  There would not be survival without all thee: land to raise crops, seed for the crops, and lead to protect the other two.

If we are not willing to protect our treasure, there are people that will take it from us.  Maybe you don’t care.  Fine.  You lack the courage and conviction.  Then stand aside and don’t hinder the rest of us.

I Like Spinach

When I was a child, I did not like spinach, not one bit.  They used to have to force it down me.  As I grew a little older, I tried to dress it up some by adding things to it.  No good.  The stuff just had a horrible taste.  Whenever I tried to force it down, it made me gag, literally.

Then, one day, I was eating a salad.  I had it half eaten when I asked the waitress what the green leaves were.  She said, “It’s Spinach.”

Can you imagine my surprise.  I ate half the spinach in the salad and guess what?  I liked it.  It actually had a nice flavor to it.  It was then that I came to realize that they ruin it when they can it.  I ate the salad, spinach and all, leaving nothing but a little of the dressing.

I should have suspected as much.  I don’t like carrots, cabbage or Brussels sprouts when they are cooked.  On the other hand, I really like raw carrots and raw cabbage a lot.  I don’t now about raw Brussels sprouts.  Haven’t tried them yet.  However, I also prefer my celery raw too, though I can also eat it cooked as well.

There is one odd thing about cabbage.  I really like egg-rolls.  I can easily eat four or five of them at once.  Guess what, their major ingredient is cabbage.  Go figure.

At any rate, this might be a good clue to parents who can’t get their kids to eat their veggies cooked.  Try feeding them to your kids raw.  Who knows it might work.  …and by the way, they are more healthy that way.  …and by the way, it takes less time and effort to prepare them.  …and by the way, they make good in between snacks.

There is one more side benefit.  Your kids will like you more.

Unfortunately, now that I like spinach, I can’t eat it.  The doctor told me to avoid it.  Now isn’t that a kicker?

Words of Deception

Over the years, I have noticed there are a few terms that are frequently used in deceptions.  I figured that I might include them below for you.

The children.  Usually, when a politician uses this term, the children benefit the least.  If money is involved, it usually goes to some other purpose and often into someone’s pocket.

Comprehensive.  The first time I heard this word was “Comprehensive immigration bill.”  It was supposed to solve all the woes of immigration.  However, after studying the bill, it became obvious that it solved everything but illegal immigration.  Actually, it encouraged it.  Then they were upset because the people all got in an uproar and made them vote it down.  Ever since then, they complain about it.  Now and then, they bring it up again, in hopes that maybe they will catch us napping, or maybe we’ll tire of fighting it.  Needless to say, comprehensive or a similar term is used from time to make other expressions:  Healthcare, crime bill, education, mass transit, etc.  Unless you don’t mind getting deceived, keep your eyes open.

Environment.  It is the new home for the communists.  Those  that like to use the word want to make sure we all ride around on bicycles while they go around in limos and jets.  it is the same concept the communists have.  A few people in control telling the rest of us what to do, where to go, and of course, what to think.

Prejudice.  This word and a few synonyms are used whenever a person with common sense gets in the way of the powers to be.  Naturally, it is a term that has been used frequently to disparage President Trump.  It has caused the the controllers no end of grief that it hasn’t worked.  Maybe one reason it fails to work on him is that the term has been abused and overused so much that the public has become immune to it.  In a sense, we have been inoculated to it.  The bad thing is that the people who truly suffer prejudice are ignored.  I heard a story about that one time.  Let me see.  Oh yes.  It’s the story about the boy who called wolf.  Most of us know the disaster the befell the boy that made that mistake.

Lobbying.  Also known as bribery.  The problem with a government or its representatives accepting bribes is that it usually benefits the one doing the bribing.  To be sure, bribes are illegal in federal, state and local governments.  However they are still common place.  More than that, lobbyists bribe representatives all the time and it is legal, as long as the money goes to a campaign.  However, offers in kind are often collected after the politician retires and goes back into private life.  It makes it next to impossible to enforce.  Besides, its an acceptable practice.  Its a retirement plan.  Certainly, much of the bribery comes in from unions, especially the National Education Association (NEA).  (The National Endowment for the Arts (also NEA) also makes bribes, though they are greatly financed by the federal government.  I don’t know about you, but that sounds improper.  They are using government money to bribe government officials.)  I don’t know anything that can be done about lobbyists.  Corporations and unions do have an ethical right to representation.  However, I do believe all such money should be published.  Nowadays, with the Internet, that shouldn’t be a problem.  The government official and the those lobbying the officials should post the financial info on web pages and kept there for a reasonable time.  That way, when I get ready to vote for someone, I will know where they get most of their contributions.  Also, it will let me keep an eye on those doing the lobbying.  As for the art outfit: that’s just wrong.  It ought to be illegal, though I don’t think that will happen.  Those receiving the funds are not likely going to vote against it.  It’s sort of like expecting our representatives to vote for term limits.  It’s just not going to happen.

I’m sure there are many words I’ve left out that you can think of.  If you like, I welcome your suggestions.  Let’s just keep it clean and reasonable.  Invariably, the terms are easy to see, provided you take a minute to think about it.  Mostly it is a matter of making sure you understand any law involved and determine who would benefit the most.  This is usually the person who uses the euphemism.
