The Tenth Amendment

Many know not what it says or what it is for. Frequently, it is ignored. In some cases, methods are invented to get around it. When politicians in DC wanted to make all the states set a 55-mph speed limit, they were well aware that it would not get by the Tenth Amendment. No problem. the used the power of highway funding. Any state that would not drop the limit to 55, would lose the federal highway funding. So much for the spirit of the tenth amendment. It would seem that any time they want to nullify the amendment, they just make the appropriate threats. The feds, specifically the dems get around the tenth to control our schools. That’s a bad idea. The feds should have very limited control over schools.

Today, the Tenth Amendment has become the least effective amendment and it should be one of the most enforced. Today, our federal system is on the brink of collapse because most people just simply don’t know how important the amendment is. More and more, power is being transferred to the feds. it is just exactly what the founding fathers feared and for good reason.

For those who have no problem with the feds (effectively the dems) running everything, consider these two questions. How has it worked so far? How well will it work in the foreseeable future?

Well, let me add one more. Do we really want the feds determining how our children are being brainwashed? Do we really want our kids filled with a heap of false propaganda? (Actually, to some degree, this has already started.)

No Comparison

In 2921, more than 70,000 people died from fentenyl.

In 2022, 1192 were killed by police. This includes those that were classified as justified.

The whole nation is about to come apart at the seems because of the death of one man, who was under the influence and resisting arrest. While I feel horrible at the loss of any life, there is just no comparison. Where is the outrage of the thousands of lives lost to fentenyl?

Moreover, the death at the man in Memphis was the indirect result of drug abuse. Had he not been under the influence, it is highly likely he would not have been stopped.

Maybe, just maybe, someone should show a little anger at the characters that sold the victim the drug. (I’m not sure, but I believe one of the earlier reports said he was on speed.)

Finally, may I say something about the mainstream media. They spent hours on the death of one man while hardly mentioning what led up to the horribly incident. The reason that hundreds of thousands have died is because of illegal drug distribution, which we can trace back to China and the cartels in Mexico.

Joe is really upset over one man in Memphis. Not one word by anyone about the murderers shipping poison over the border.

Note that I call the murderers. Most of their victims fail to survive and return for a second purchase. If the purpose of the cartels was to make money, they’d not choose to sell the poison they are killing more with their chemical warfare than we lost in Vietnam.

Proof Positive

The dems say we are ruining the planet by the emissions of CO2, all while spewing out exhaust with their big cars, big houses, private jets and big yachts.

They claim the oceans are rising while they buy beach front homes, frequently in Florida. They do this while they claim that all of Florida will be under water inside a decade or two. It might almost be wishful thinking. It would tilt the Electoral College in their favor.

The question is, just what does this prove? Just think about it a while. You just might figure it out. I can’t, but I’ve narrowed it down.

If what they claim is true, they cannot be too bright buying land that will soon be well submerged. If they are so afraid of carbon dioxide, they’d not spend so much of their ill gotten gains to generate it.

To me, it looks as if it’s proof positive that they don’t believe what they preach.

On the other hand, it might just be outright stupidity. You take your pick. Sometimes I think the one way; sometimes the other. Sometimes, I think it’s a little of both. Sometimes I think it’s just to keep folks like me guessing. I mean, really. What sane person would buy land that they know will soon be useless?

Omnibus Bill Not Funny!

The omnibus bill would be hilarious but for 2 things. They are spending our money carelessly and the vast amount of it will end up going into the pockets of those who do not have any need of it. It will end up enriching the rich and powerful.

If you doubt me, look at the results. After it is all dispersed, the poor won’t be any better off but the rich will will be richer. Their fortunes will swell with US taxpayers’ dollars.

Meanwhile, our children will be stuck with the debt. I can tell the future by studying the past. I learned by experience. So have the dems. They know that they can get away with it.

Worldwide

According to Joe and his defenders, Joe did not cause our current historic inflation. He uses the defense that it is worldwide. Being as he is not president of the world, he cannot have caused it.

It’s only another proof of their blindness, stupidity or power hunger (you choose which). All prices are tied to oil. Joe and those who put him in power have done what they can to push the price oil historically high. They should not be surprised at their results. It was as planned. They drove the price of gas up from $2 a gallon to $4 and were privately proud of it. They should have expected it.

Somehow, I think they did. Certainly they knew that when the price of energy increases, so would all else. It’s sort-of like overeating causes obesity. Try as one might, separation of the 2 is possible only in one’s fantasy desires.

Now they act surprised. Moreover, Joe is trying blame everyone but his son for the problems he intentionally brought on this world.

By the way, why isn’t Fauci in prison. He has had his part in worldwide disasters, financial as well as health, living and deaths.

8.7% COLA

Just received a message that the Social Security Cost Of Living Adjustment will be almost 9%. I don’t know if that’s a record but it’s the biggest in recent history.

Still, it doesn’t truly represent the real increase of living. Consider my grocery cost rarely went more than $125 per visit to the store. Nowadays, it’s over 200. My gas bill has doubled and the only reason my TV watching hasn’t gone through the roof is tha I no longer have cable.

When Biden keeps driving the up costs faster than he drives up Social Security payments, he’s not helping anyone relying on Social Security for a living. Even more, the cost goes up day by day. The COLAs go up once a year. As such, even if the COLAs were accurate, they would always be a year behind.

Then why should he care? I doubt he is concerned about the price of a gallon of milk or a gallon of gas. He likely could care less about how much bread it costs for a loaf of bread. His last concern is how much change it costs us for the changes he’s made.

Of course he does care about our votes, but only just before election days. On the other hand, should he lose any more of his mental facilities, it will all be over for him anyway. The dems can only conceal so much.

Representative Cheney Does Not Represent

I think this becomes casual to the most obvious observer when you consider the margin by which she is being voted out of office. Therefore, I submit that her seat on the current kangaroo hearing on January 6 is illegitimate.

She claims to represent her constitutes while all the time, her representation is of of her colleague dems. Moreover, she makes no effort to deny it.

If there were such thing as recalls of representatives, she would already be gone. Then again, maybe not. With the fear of an immediate loss of her job, she wouldn’t have done the things she’s done. Her idiocy would have been far more apparent to her.

Now, the only question that remains is what she will do come January. She might write books that no one will read. I don’t know, but she might go into practicing law. Certainly, she likely needs a lot of practice. She might join all those others who practice legal bribery; that is those who lobby for wealth. I’m sure there are many dems that will help her to get set up in that endeavor.

Wait a minute. Maybe I need to apologize somewhat. I’ve written over thirty books and hardly anyone has read them. On the other hand, millions of her book will be printed, purchased, distributed to warehouses and just sit there. It is one of the most common ways to bribe dishonest representatives. And it works quite successfully.

A Word of Advice for All Advertisers

I know. I have no degree in advertising. I have no degree in higher learning at all. However, I do have eyes in my head and I have likely a little better mind for reasoning than most. That is to say, I can observe and draw reasonably sound conclusions.

Now, let’s say I’m watching a TV show and one of those irritating, highly over repeated ads come on. You know the ones. The ones by the lawyers seeking their 40% for legal fees; the ones advertising for Medicare part C; etc, etc and so forth.

Instead of leaving the room to make a sandwich, I change the channel to avoid the obnoxious blather. Then, no matter the reason, I don’t change the channel back. Maybe I forget. Perhaps I decide I like what’s on the other channel. I don’t know. Maybe the remote breaks or gets lost.

Your ad, which is immediately after the repetitive gibberish is not watched…the one for which you paid good money. The money, goes down the tubes, never to even be seen again. I imagine the ad agency as well as those writing the check don’t like like my little story.

Based on the above, it would seem to me that advertisers would not want to pay prime prices for time following “such fantastic works of art.”

Odd. While watching TV just now, one of those irritants came on. I’m not sure I’ll change it back. I sort of like this program better.

I mean, there are irritating commercials. Then, there are just irritating blabbing, if you get my point. I mean, I do believe we are all now well educated on bad water at Lejeune and the benefits of part c Medicare.

The Epitome of Stupidity

I just heard a report on CBS that was so unbelievable that I just had to verify it before writing on it. Sure enough, it’s accurate according to NPR (Becky Sullivan)

Henceforth, VISA, Mastercard and American Express will (or have) created a code for gun sales. This is in hopes of decreasing gun violence.

Sorry, that will have little or no affect. The reason can be determined by a smart 6th grader (One who does not attend public school). Those who plan to use guns illegally are not likely to use a credit card to buy a gun. Hidden near the end of the article is a stat that pretty much confirms this. About 7% of those using guns during crimes buy them legally. There is no record of the purchase of over 90% of guns used in crime.

If I decide to buy a gun without my M.C., all I need do is go to the ATM and withdraw 6 or 7 hundred dollars and go find someone interested in selling their 9 mm.

I have no such plans nor do I currently have any guns, although if the FOCs continue to run things as they do, I just might go out and buy a few automatic pitching machines with which to defend my home. I’m not sure, but I’d think it would be a good legal way of defense. Any smart burglars burglaring my home would be wise to bring their baseball glove.

As I have said before, the way to stop gun violence, or any kind of of violence is three-fold. Teach respect of human life in the home, in the schools and from the government. Pray and encourage prayer before the violence. It doesn’t help much after. Make sure everyone knows basic gun safety.

One more thing thing that would help is to lock up those who commit crimes, especially the violent kind. Many violent crimes are committed by known criminals, most which don’t use guns.

Time Flies

Time flies, if you can, but it takes a keen eye.

Some may have difficulty making sense of the above sentence. If so, the hint is that “[You]” is the understood subject.

Maybe you can have some fun with your friends and the above sentence, which though it appears nonsense, is a proper, though useless sentence.

And by way, the sentence makes far more sense than some of the going green ideas out there.
