Election Audits, What Ifs

If I have heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times, “No evidence of fraud.” To which I respond, “If you never look for fraud you will likely never find it, especially if you intentionally turn your head at the hint of it.”

At any rate, in Arizona, they have been doing a very serious audit. To the best of my knowledge, the dems, especially those in charge of the election are doing all they can to avoid the audit. I don’t know about others, but to me that smells. It smells like something rotten.

Moreover, it would seem even before they got a good start, they have found evidence of tampering, such as missing ballots by the thousands. Moreover, after taking a better look at the Georgia election, the Georgia Sec. of State has some explaining to do…like what happened to all those chain of evidence documents.

Okay. Maybe there is not yet any evidence of fraud. However, there is already plenty of evidence of improper election procedures in at at least five states, which would be more than enough to overturn the election. Oh. And by the way, they just might find some of that evidence that one and all keep saying doesn’t exist.

That provokes the question, “What if?”

To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing in the constitution or in the statutes that would cause Biden to vacate The White House. Indeed, even if they prove he was behind it, it would take an impeachment to have him removed. Moreover, given those that might succeed him, I’m not sure anyone would want that to happen, at least not until there is a republican Speaker of the House.

As near as I can tell, there is simply no way that the election could be reversed this late in the game. If such a thing did happen, I’m not sure what the results might be. I mean, the dems are prone to suggest riots in the streets and if they had such a reversal, the threat just just might come to pass. I simply do not know if our nation could stand such a upheaval.

However, if the proof were uncovered, it would accomplish at least four things.

  1. Some of the guilty just might find themselves in orange jumpsuits. This in itself might discourage future hanky-panky.
  2. It would shut the mouths of those claiming no fraud here. It should embarrass them, but it won’t. Nothing will. However, they never will have an ounce of credibility again. Their words will forever contain the ring of being being counterfeit.
  3. Most important, there would be justification for positive changes in voting laws. When it is suggested that picture IDs should be required, they will not be able say there is no fraud. (I refer to bullet point 2)
  4. The dems will have egg all over their faces. There is no way that such fraud could have been made on the voters of the nation unless they were fully behind it. It just might result in a change in the voter registration. On the other hand, that just might be wishful thinking. When people have a D after their name, they can get away with most anything.

By the way, where is that written apologize from the media and social media media for putting their filters on the China virus? I have not yet heard one, though they have a tendency to required them from us.

By the way, why is Fauci not yet fired. Why is he not net in an orange jump suit. He played a big part in the loss of millions of lives and I have not yet heard an apology from him either. When you come right down to it, I don’t think he feels an ounce of remorse. Many have shed tears of grief because of what he did. From him, not so much as a hint of a tear. He has walked away from his crime and likely will not pay a dime for it.

A Matter of Priorities?

We all know where the dems interests are. They want investigation after investigation of Jan 6 and the overrunning of the Capital Building. (Only four people died.)

On the other hand, when it comes to the millions that died in the pandemic, they want to turn their eyes from those most likely culpable. This is especially true when it just might involve one of their heroes, Fauci. (Why is he not in an orange jumpsuit?) This is also because it involves their hero nation, China. (Why are we still doing business with them?) And by the way, why is it that we were giving them money for virus research?

I guess it is all just a matter of priorities. We now know where the dem’s heart is. Those who like to experiment with dangerous viruses and then blame others for the results. As for the millions who died, they are just statistics, as Joseph Stalin liked to put it. They used the stats on their primary opponent, President Trump.

To my way of thinking such experiments should take place on barges far out to sea. Better yet, they ought not take place at all. Most of all, we don’t need to help our enemies develop such horrid things… for any reason… certainly not for weapons.

Politics and Medicine

I would suspect that there is a little politicking in most professions. Surely, medicine is no exceptions. I don’t have any first hand knowledge on the matter, but it only stands to reason that egos do collide from time to time.

However, if there was ever a time for politics to take a back seat to medicine, the pandemic was one of them. Yet, looking back over the past 18 or so months, I see that medicine took the back seat. The dems took the attitude that they should use the disaster to get rid of President Trump, when he was one of the few that did most everything right. His interest was always based on the health and lives of everyone.

There was however one mistake he did make. He suggested that Hydroxychloroquine might be used as a cure. The dems really jumped on that. By the time they got done, you’d think it was one of the worst poisons ever invented by man. Had the president not said anything about it, the doctors could have used the drug to treat hundreds of thousands. However, for the sake of politicians, the use of the drug was virtually band for use against the China virus.

Now it would appear that Fauci, who was supposed to be a doctor (who likely took the Hippocratic Oath) has chosen politics over medicine, which likely led to the loss of tens of thousands of lives. It would appear he does not believe in the concept of, “First, do no harm.” If that were his goal, he sure did get that one wrong. It would appear that he helped to finance the whole thing. Moreover, every time he issued instructions, he got it wrong. Then, while everyone panicked, he played the innocent bystander.

Certainly, China played their role in the pandemic. They decided to play politics too, or perhaps, they decided to take advantage of the problem. First they said one thing and then the other, while nothing they said was true. All the while they encouraged their diseased people to travel all over the world, treating them like human biological bombs.

Now, over a year after the whole thing started, some of this info is coming to light. Now, about all Fauci will say is, “I didn’t do it. It wasn’t my fault.”

And, of course, all the dems can say is, “Trump did it!”

Meanwhile, people with the China virus, TB and who knows what all communicable diseases come flowing unchecked across the border and the dems don’t care. They stand there encouraging them, “Come one come all. Y’all are welcome as two peas in a pod.” Biden made that political decision. I wonder how many lives that will cost. No since asking if Biden cares. We already know, for him, politics and power take priority.

Reasons Not to Work

It would appear we have a large supply of potential employees as well as a large number of job openings. I have heard a number of possible reasons for this: people getting paid for doing nothing seems to be right at the top of the list. However, there are two other possibilities that no one has talked about, leastwise to the best of my knowledge. The one that most readily comes to me are the masks. I am 73 and I find it very difficult to breathe in those things. After an hour or so I just have to take mine off regardless of any law.

I had considered taking on a part-time job to help with my Social Security income, but I know of nowhere that would hire me unless I wear a mask. Because of the requirement, I would suspect there are many that simply will not work because of the respiratory stress it causes. Maybe, now with the shots, this problem will go away. Still, I suspect there are places that will still require the masks.

Although I do not know of anyone who has the second reason, I suspect there are many. There are many these days that cut lawns for money, or simply provide landscaping services. If they are providing these services under the table, so to speak, they could have two sources of income. By the way, do not belittle landscaping as a method of income. Some people make a lot of money at it. If the truth be told, some or all of the money made doing this might not get reported to Uncle Sam. After all, many of those doing the work are not here legally.

And so, by not going back to the legitimate job, some just might be drawing from the government and making a dollar or two on the side. Am I wrong? I can’t prove my suggestion. Then again, I doubt there is anyone that can prove me wrong either.

Let’s face it, government regulations and laws do have a tendency to create underground economies, legal or not. The hitch in this for American citizens is that much of this trade is being taken from them by illegal aliens willing to work for less money.

So it would appear that those who continue to pay them to do nothing are also the same ones making it difficult for them to make a dollar or two under the table. Who’d guess. The democrats making it hard for the poor to make a dollar or three on the side, illegal though it might be.

Sports, College, Money

I suppose the question of students in sports getting paid has been around for decades now. To be sure, I don’t think there is an easy answer. I certainly find reasons for them being paid and I find reasons for them not getting paid. However, I think the answer becomes somewhat clearer when we ask the question: Are the students going to school to learn or to play sports?

Maybe we can turn the question around. Are they students playing sports or are they athletes going to school.

If their purpose is to make money, why not let them be paid and not require them to maintain the academics. If their purpose is education, why pay them to play sports.

Currently, when you come right down to it, many are being paid to play sports, but not in cash. They get a free education as well as room and board. At today’s cost of college, that’s not bad. That is the equivalent of, maybe a hundred grand a year. That’s not bad for throwing around a ball.

On the other hand, there are hardship matters. A young guy shows up to college and gets the education while his family starves. Sure, in four years, he gets paid a million to throw that ball around, but what does he do in the meantime. To be sure a person can starve in four years.

Then too, there is the concept of earnings. The athlete earns the money, but the college collects it. Indeed, the athlete might well bring enough money into a college that he more than pays for the education. Worse, if he gets injured, he is out on his ear. He gets neither the education nor the money. Also, most college students don’t make it in the pros. Some have been known to finish four years of college, get a degree and then they weren’t able to read it. If they don’t make it in the pros, where is he then?

My brother was one who was against athletics in college altogether. I certainly disagreed with him, but he does have a point. As with my original question, why go to college, school or sports? Frequently, one gets in the way of the other. At one time, athletes were required to have a major and they had to maintain a C average in that major. Currently, if a man can throw a 97 mile an hour fastball, he will maintain the average, even if he can’t. If the one college won’t accept him, another will, regardless of his scholastic ability.

I suppose one solution would be to separate the two. You want to play for this college, you can keep 90% of your earnings, as long as you pay for your education. Instead of paying for the scholarship, the school simply pays the salary. This does, of course interfere with his amateur standings, but all of that is just a facade anyway. Athletes are already routinely paid for their talent, if nothing else, in room and board.

The truth is, I don’t know. I don’t have any answers. However, we just might start by trying to be a little more honest about it all. Regardless, the NCAA should make hardship allowances. They should be applied for and allowed on an individual basis.

Oh. One more thing. They really do need to go back to requiring an honest C grade average. Either that, or divorce the athletics from the sports. When a college gives out diplomas to those who don’t earn them, it waters down the value of the diploma.

Throwing Around Words

I will admit to bad word selection. It is not that I don’t know the difference between most homonyms. It just is something goes haywire between my brain and my fingers. If I am not very careful, I will use the wrong one. Actually, I sometimes use the wrong one anyway. Sorry.

I suppose before I release a book, I should do a word search on all the homonyms to make sure that none are misused. However, it is just one of many problems I have when I write. The one homonym I have the most difficult time with is wonder and wander. I always have to look that one up to refresh my memory.

There are, however people who like to intentionally throw words around incorrectly. Take, for instance, literally, virtually and figuratively. They all have distinctly different meanings. For instance, “The man was so scared that he left literally at the speed of light.” We all know that is impossible. Yet, recently two reporters used the word in a situation which was, literally, incorrect. In these cases they likely should have used ‘virtually,’ and even that was questionable.

There are many other words and combinations of words that have meanings that are similar, such as similar, as, like, and so forth. I would urge anyone reading this to make sure you are familiar with these words as when you misuse them, it is not just a grammar mistake, but it changes the complete meaning of the sentence. On the other hand, when you see someone misuse the words, you just might want to reconsider the source.

If they are so careless in the use such simple words improperly, what do they knew about the more complex. They just might be trying to mislead you with an almost lie, especially if the carelessness is intentional.

Ping Pong

In my younger days, I played quite a bit of Ping Pong. During my few off hours in Vietnam I practiced my abilities quite a bit. There were a few that could regularly beat me but not many. I used a lot of spin, or what some call English, though I have no idea why.

I had not one but five very mean serves. After the ball bounced on the other side of the table, it generally came up not much more than two inches before dropping off the other end. Mostly, the best way to handle it was to put the paddle under the ball and almost scoop it up in the process of returning it.

The trick was, I often put side spin as well as back spin on the ball, so, if my opponent did didn’t compensate for that, the ball went off the side of the table. Then too, even if he returned the ball, he usually hit it high enough that I could hit so hard that he’d have a hard time seeing it, let alone hit it.

Of course, this worked only half the time. My opponent did get his chances to serve too. Even so, I was generally able to put quite a spin on my return, though I didn’t have nearly the control.

I know I’ve lost a step or two at the game, which also call table tennis. However, give me a chance to practice and I think I could still give most a run for their money. Though I am not as fast, the knowledge and basic skills are still there.

A few months after leaving the Marines, I met a guy who played tennis, the real game as some might say. I had seen him play and he was good. Though I dabbled at it a little, there was no way that I was a match for him.

He was friendly and asked if I played the game. I explained that the only tennis I played was on a small table. Still, he suggested we play a few sets.

Believe it or not, the game is governed by many of the same laws of physics. The big difference is the serve. If you want to have any luck at it, you really need to put some top spin on the ball. It causes the ball to curve down, which allows you to hit it harder and still get it inside the lines. In ping pong, I almost always used back spin as mentioned earlier. However, I did have an effective top-spin serve.

Surprisingly, I did beat him but I felt awful about it. No matter how hard I tried, I went back to my spin methods. Surprisingly, the spin has a big effect on tennis balls, more for the bounce than the flight. He would rare back and hit one of his serves and it was all I could do to hit it back. As I said, he was good.

However, my reactions would take over and I gave the ball a hard spin one way or the other. The ball almost seemed to float to the other side and he’d set up… ready to return the ball with vigor. His problem was that once the ball hit the ground, it went off in a direction he didn’t expect.

In some cases, he swung and missed. In other cases, he didn’t bother trying.

I felt horrible about it. To make matters worse, in spite of every effort not to, I laughed. I understand that sort of thing is bad etiquette for tennis. I don’t know. As I said, I never got serious at the game. It was rare I could find an opponent.

At any rate, after it was done, I apologized and told him that by all rights, he was the better player, which of course he was.

Since that day, I haven’t played tennis and I rarely played ping pong. It’s not that I didn’t like the game, I just don’t have an area or any opponents as I did. However, if I continued to play tennis as I did that day, they would likely bar me from the courts.

As any aside, I did prove some physics. A ball when flying through the air with a lot of spin will curve. I know. I’ve seen it. It is far more noticeable with a ping pong ball than a baseball but they all do curve. It is not some kind of optical allusion.

Also, the spin I put on a ping pong ball falls far short to the spin the dems put on the truth. It’s not even close. They are experts at throwing curve balls. REALLY!! CAN YOU BELIEVE BIDEN IS TRYING TO TAKE CREDIT FOR THE CEASE FIRE?!! Now that’s spinning it.

The Ultimate Coward

One thing any marine learns early in boot camp is that no one can tell who will be the cowards and who will be the heroes. Sometimes the big strong man will cower, not because he wants to but because, no matter how much training he gets, in his heart, he’s a coward. In such cases, the only way to tell is to expose the man to enemy fire.

On the the other hand, some men are cowards by design. When the shooting starts, he grabs the nearest child and hides behind him, knowing that a good soldier will not kill the child in an effort to kill the kid.

Then there is the ultimate coward. That is when the so-called soldier builds his shield and defenses based on the civilian population. And when children get killed, all the better. It makes his enemy appear horrible… killing babies, destroying hospitals and annihilating schools, All the time, it is the ultimate coward that causes that death and destruction. When he stands before God he will have to give his account, not the one who fired the weapon. God will know him for what he is, the ultimate coward, no matter what the media has to say on the matter.

Also a suggestion. It is suggested that we rebuild Gaza. Fine. Sounds like a good idea but on three conditions. First, an official apology from the Palestinians to Israel. Second, an official recognition of Israel as a nation. Third, that they will never again hide behind the children.

I’m not so sure that any of it will work, especially the third item, but at least it would put it on record as to who they are, both as aggressors and cowards. For sure, if they are not willing to meet these conditions, then they don’t need their country rebuilt with our tax dollars.

If they refuse to meet the requirements, this tells us something about them too. To be sure, if they don’t need or want our help then why should we offer it? Maybe it will be good that they fully suffer for their foolish and cowardly attacks.

Debate Points

It’s as I have said all along. It is all about the power.

People are being killed in Israel and the Gaza Strip and the Dems have decided to debate the mater, to decide who can draw the better news reviews. Bottom line, the dems don’t care about the loss of life, as long as it furthers their cause.

They keep crying out for a cease fire, cease fire! This when they were very much responsible for the outbreak. Some can’t wait to take advantage of it. They say they want peace. Then just why did they take part in financing the war that the Palestinians are waging to destroy Israel. In deed, if the Palestinians succeeded at their efforts, they would kill over 7 million Jews. That is more than Hitler killed.

The truth is that the dems don’t want peace. The loss of life means nothing to them. And by the way, why did the dems encourage aliens from Central America to trek thousands of miles, risking their lives and the lives of their children. It’s not a walk in the park for them and the dems know it. Their goal is power and they don’t mind the suffering and the loss lives. Any time the subject is brought up, they quickly change the subject. Invariably they will not answer the question asked but the one they want to answer. It is their methods. It is the way they debate.

A little note. I would suspect an airplane ticket from Central America to to the US cost around $800 to $1000, about the price they pay to walk. If the aliens did it legal, they could ride in a nice comfortable airplane seat, which would be far safer. But that would not fit the dems purpose.

That would not give the dems their precious debating points.

So…. While the dems debate, people die and they don’t care.
