Build the Wall??

For a long time now, I have written strongly in favor of a wall on the Mexican border. Here lately, I am beginning to wonder if we should build a wall south of Memphis.

We have for years had problems with Memphians. Frequently, Memphis residents brought their attention children to Desoto County schools. Not only is that wrong, it’s illegal.

I suppose it’s an admission that Desoto County schools are better. To be sure, they are doing this at quite a risk. I don’t know what the penalty is but I am sure it would hurt. They risk someone checking plates as they drop off their children.

Besides, it means driving children to and from school. That can’t be easy. Then the kids must learn dishonesty. Not only must they lie about where they live, but they must guard against a slip of the tongue that might reveal their true domicile.

Over time, things kept getting worse. They have brought their driving habits, their drugs and crime.

Now it’s become unbearable. They have brought their politics. That means Desoto County will soon have all the disadvantages of Memphis, including the horrible schools.

So. We need a really big wall.

I suspect that isn’t legal. Maybe it is too late anyway. Well. At least they won’t be bringing their kids to our schools. That will save us a bit on our taxes.

Now, if we can just keep their drugs and crimes north of that little invisible line separating Memphis from Mississippi.

It is sort-of what happens when you allow socialist to migrate into conservative areas.

Has Anyone Noticed, That is Besides Me?

After the Vietnam war was virtually won, the dems pulled out all the financing and forced us to abandon millions to whom we made promises. Never mind that millions should die. They were just a bunch of orientals. No skin off our backs.

After President Eisenhower set up a perfect Bay of Pigs Invasion, Kennedy’s nearly first act was to leave a bunch of brave Cuban’s in the lurch. Many died. The Soviets took the island nation and immediately planted missiles on it, nearly resulting in a WW III. Oddly, Kennedy is held in high esteem for that fiasco. Never could figure that out.

After President Bush freed the nation of Iraq and promised that we would provide protection for them, Obama immediately withdrew, resulting in a bloodbath.

After President Trump arranged a good logical withdrawal, Joe just couldn’t wait to use his own methods. Then, after he promised to bring all the Americans home, he won’t even help finance the efforts of others to go in and get them. And, by the way, he also left our allies out on a ledge.

It’s no wonder other countries don’t believe our promises. The democrats never keep them. They go out of their way to break them.

May I also note, Joe is about to break two more promises. Russia is about to go into Ukraine and China is about to go into Taiwan.

I think after that, I wouldn’t trust the dems either…ever.

However. Never fear. Soon all rider mowers in California will be electric and the seas will remain in its limits…mostly.

The Best Place

I write this for one simple reason. Some people just can’t understand the sudden rise in crime. 1st let me suggest a couple of solutions for those who have stores that are subject to the recent crime wave. Armor your business so that it is difficult for the criminals to enter. That way, the criminals will do criminaling somewhere else. Hiring security is OK, but in the current environment, it will do little good and you just might get sued. Even when you when the suit, it will still cost you an arm and a leg. The lawyers have seen to that.

Then you build a solid anti-room for entering and one for exiting your business. This will ensure that only 1 or 2 at a time enter. While they are in the anti-room, require an ID and credit card. Notify them that they will be charged for anything they take or damage. Insist they sign an agreement before letting them into the area where you have your merchandise. Finally, before they leave, search them completely to make sure they are not taking what they have not paid for.

OR you can simply close the business and go to a city where such problems don’t exist.

This may not completely solve your problems but it just might force the cities to solve theirs.

NOW as for solving the problem.

It is simpler than you might imagine. Put the criminals in prison and keep them there as long as possible. Even if they are not rehabilitated, their criminal endeavors will be greatly reduced. Besides, it will put teeth to the saying that crime does not pay. It would seem, right now, it does.

As for why those in charge don’t already do this, that is simple too. They don’t want to. Those in charge of locking up the criminals are the Friends Of Criminals (FOC). Indeed, some are criminals. Why would they want to lock up their friends when it enhances their bank accounts to let their criminal friends do criminal things? As an aside, they are also friends of lawyers. Think of all the money they get out of it all.

So, instead of going after criminals, they go after those who go after criminals in every way they can. To be sure, they don’t like it when they are so embarrassed by honest people making them look bad. Besides, it is cutting into their profit. [Has anyone noticed? The Clinton slush fund(so-called charity) has drastically shrunk since they no longer have any influence to sell. On the other hand, I would expect that Joe will be a multi-billionaire when he leaves office, whether that is vertically or horizontally.]

Just remember, it is about power and money. Those who go into office without it, generally have plenty as they leave. Those that do leave without with power and money, we can truly label as honest, usually. To be sure, politics is a dog-eat-dog world. Sometimes, even the dishonest ones get eaten by the dishonest ones.

To go back to the main theme. The best way to have thriving businesses, keep the criminals in prison! It is the best place for them and keeping them there is the best for the honest folk. If a few lawyers go hungry, maybe that’s best too.

Speaking of criminals, why isn’t Fauci behind bars where he can’t invent any more viruses?

Getting Along

As the man said, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Every day I get out on the road. During the day, especially after four in the afternoon, they get crowded. Now that we are approaching Christmas, they are going to get especially crowded around the stores, especially Walmart. Some of the intersections can get bottle-necked. There is one intersection near the Chick-fil-a where it can come that it can come to a complete stand still. It is the reason that we park about half a block away whenever we go there… and this though the dinning room is not yet open.

Nonetheless, most of us make it through just fine, though our nerves are a bit frazzled and we burn maybe a quart of gas getting the quarter mile or so. Then too, there is the time element. The reason we usually get along on the road is because of laws, rules that govern who can go and when. We are also encouraged to let the other drivers know our intentions. I find most drivers are courteous provided I use my signals and don’t make any sudden moves. As my brother told me before I did any driving, “Surprises might be fine for birthdays, but not so much for driving.”

Occasionally, though all the rules of the road are followed by everyone, people do have accidents. However, ‘accidents’ are generally the results of someone doing something wrong. Sometimes, it is unintentional; sometime it is right on purpose. Some take advantage of some imagined privilege and before you know it, bumpers are touching and then the tempers really flare. Sometimes, because someone thinks he is special and it ends in the loss of life. In such cases, the police become involved and no one likes the outcome.

When we were making a long road trip, my brother mentioned something that amazed me. On the two lane highway, people were passing each other at the relative speed of 130 mph, assuming both drivers are at the speed limit. A head on collision at that speed is almost always fatal. Yet, we do it everyday, somewhat casually, assuming the driver going the other way is going to stay on his side of the line. By the way, we do this just about 3 or 4 feet apart as we pass. As I think it over, it scares me. However, I still do it, giving it little thought.

The thing is, if we don’t “Just get along,” the results can be horrible, even fatal. So, in general, we follow the rules. In general, we remain relatively courteous. When it calls for it, we take our turn.

On the other hand there are those who are special. When one lane is closed, they wait until the last minute to make the lane change. It isn’t that they just crowd in front of me, but they are also crowding in front of the fifty patient drivers behind me who do it right. Sometimes they go into the emergency lanes. The police don’t like that because the lanes are reserved for real emergencies, not privileged drivers. It makes it difficult for ambulances, fire vehicles and tow trucks to make it through.

Sometimes these privileged drivers enter intersections, knowing that there is not going to be any room for them on the opposite side. When people do that, they cause gridlock. That is sort of what happens near the Chick-fil-a. Lights turn green; lights turn red. Then, because there are cars in the intersection, no one goes anywhere.

I can go on and on, but I am sure you know what I mean. The purpose for me explaining that which you know is to point out something that just might not be so obvious. We have other laws too, rules that we are supposed to follow. When we don’t it can result in problems. Yet there are people who disobey them. In some cases, they are caught by police and they are made to pay for the infractions. Other times, they get away with it. Here lately, it would seem they get away with it, as others watch. Sometimes even while others cheer them on. Sometimes, right in front of the eyes of law enforcement officers.

In situations such as this, it is as if there are no laws. It makes us a lawless society. In the end, it is to the detriment of all. For no one wants to live where there is no law.

Yet we have a political party that would have such a country. They want us to live in a place of theft and pillaging. They like it when the murderer murders and the innocent citizen goes to prison for defending his life and property. The figuratively put cuffs on the border patrol and ICE while they wave the law breaking illegal aliens through.

To be sure, where there is no enforcement, there is no law. Where there is no law, there is no justice. Where there is no justice, there is no just getting along. It was the reason for the law in the first place. But then the lawless society is exactly what they want and it is exactly what they are forcing onto the rest of us, like it or not.

Due to recent revelations, it would appear our nations number one law enforcement organization threw all the laws away. Instead of enforcing them they were breaking them. Dozens suffered the results directly. We all suffered indirectly. Yet, I doubt any of those really behind it will ever see the inside of a prison cell. Certainly neither of the Clintons will. There power and influence are simply too great. This is ironic seeing as Mrs. Clinton said that no one is above the law. Besides, there is no way the media will permit either of the Clintons to suffer such indignity.

If it becomes that way on the roadways, we might all be better walking.

It’s Just Not the Same

Many people like like to point out the migration that took place on Ellis Island and try to equivocate it the avalanche of those coming across the Mexican border. Even as they speak, they know it’s not nearly the same, that is unless they have less of a brain than a nail on the wall.

For those unable to figure out the difference, let me explain it.

First, no one who was sick was permitted into the country. Indeed the hospital where they were kept still stands and, though I might be wrong, it can still be toured. It was where the diseased were kept until well. Those who were not curable went back to where they came from. Had AIDS been a disease back then, no one would have been permitted in with it. However, today it is a political disease and people with AIDS are permitted in regularly, which likely resulted in the loss of many lives. Because there is no desire to do any tracing, there is no way to tell how many. There is no way to make a reasonable guess.

Secondly, it was highly organized. All who tried to enter were interviewed and if they were considered undesirable. they were returned to their country. Certainly, those who had a desire to overthrow the country were not permitted in. Those who had no money or a desired trade were turned away. It was not intended that we should be the welfare state of the world. Finally, those who were criminals were returned to their own country. To be sure, we were not perfect in this regard. Apparently, many criminals did make it through. However, they also turned many away. On the Mexican border, none are turned away.

Third, there were limits, quotas for each country. The obvious attempt was to keep any one nation from overwhelming our civilization. Even though most did separate themselves somewhat into groups, they eventually did assimilate. Until recently, we spoke one language in the schools businesses and our government. Now, when school meetings are held, it is not uncommon for them to be held in three languages. Worse, children are in our schools who don’t know the how to speak English, let alone read and write. They are not the only ones affected. All the learning is hampered.

And, by the way, it makes it more expensive too. Many who of those slowing the learning should not be in the classroom. They are there illegally. If ten illegal children are in a class, that means two-thirds are paying to educate three-thirds. That is not right.

Fourth, many who come over the border are criminals. It causes the crime rates to go up and it increases the cost of enforcing the law. Many communities that were reasonably peaceful now have a meaningful population of criminals who are not Americans.

Fifth, back in the day, cartels did not control our borders. Nowadays, they do control the Mexican borders. The US would be completely right to send in troops and wipe out the cartels. The US is under their attack. However, no one, but not one will do that, though they fire across the river nightly.

If things were now as they were then, I would not mind the immigration. Somehow, I don’t think there are many who will pay me any attention. They are afraid of someone saying something in the social media, which would force them out into the Outer Limits.

So instead, they watch as our nation falls into oblivion.

OH YES! ONE MORE THING. BACK THEN WE DID NOT HAVE THE FLOOD OF DEADLY DRUGS OVER THE BORDERS.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Anyone Ever Heard of Quality Control?

I guess the first time I ever heard the term “quality control” was when I was in the 7th grade or there abouts. Considering I was born in 1947, that was almost a lifetime ago, literally. That means, statistically, I should die just about any time now. Most men do not live much past their seventieth birthday.

Speaking of statistics, which some of us have difficulty saying; it is a science that, when applied to quality control, provide a very effective way of providing a good quality product without having to test each and every one.

I am not going to pretend to be an expert in statistics. However, I do know a little bit about them. In today’s world, it is difficult to avoid them, even while watching TV. Consider the nature show I saw. They caught several fish, tagged them and let them go. After a while, they caught several more fish and let them go. By determining how many of the fish they caught the second time that were tagged, they were able to determine how many fish were in the lake.

They explained it all and it made sense to me, though I still had my doubts. I’m not sure they took into account all the variables. None the less, they said they were accurate within a few percentage points.

On assembly lines, there are fewer variables and the stats are far more indicative. By pulling a small number of samples off the line at various points and checking them, the statistician can tell just how much of a problem the assembly line might have, that is, within certain limits.

Nowadays, it is a science that is practiced in just about all industries. If the CEO of Ford wants to know how many cars do not meet the specs, he asks quality control and they can tell him, likely within a few percent. This is despite the fact that quality control does not look at all the cars. Naturally, the more they sample, the more accurate they are. However, they can be very with very small random samples.

It really makes me wonder why we don’t use random sampling for voting. It can be done. Banks have test accounts to make sure that all accounts are treated properly. Random deposits and withdrawals are made and then verified. If the numbers are wrong, the bank knows they have a problem to fix. Mostly, it is a confidence test. The numbers are rarely, rarely wrong.

At the very least a simple test should be made after all elections for quality control. A certain number of the voters should be verified, not to determine who they voted for, but if they even exist. That is to say, someone would go to the address of a voter and ask two simple questions. Does this person live at this address and did he or she vote? The answers would go into a database and the statisticians could determine how many votes were legal and how many were not. The results should be posted to the legislatures and to the pubic. What is done with the numbers is up to them.

There is a little more active method. Special quality control ballots could be entered into the system at irregular intervals. The machines would not count the votes but they would be recorded. This would verify the machinery and the system itself. Those in charge of the quality control would know how it should turn out and would know there was a problem if it was wrong.

None of this would be perfect. However, if there was a big problem, we could be alerted. Moreover, if there is no problem, we would have just a little more confidence in the system. In itself, this would be a good thing. Doubting elections can lead to problems.

I don’t think any of this will happen, though. The FOCs have no desire for us to find the problems… the ones we can see without the quality control. They certainly don’t want the facts backed up with proof.

Suggested Solutions for the FOCs

As I turned on the TV today, I saw that the dems are in real trouble. Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to 43%. If the truth be told, it is more likely 35 or maybe 30%. Regardless, it will soon be down to 30% or lower. This means, come the midterm elections, Biden will act like a big boat anchor. Therefore, as a favor to the FOCs I have a few suggestions.

First, he could resign. I don’t think the dems would like that one. It would mean that the republicans would no longer be the only party to have a resignation in disgrace. Nonetheless, it would be fast and simple. Moreover, Biden could always try adding some kind of personal reason. He might even suggest it is for the good of the country, which would not be a lie.

Second, there are the direct ways, impeachment or 25th amendment. These are neither likely nor do they completely resolve the problem. It is sort of like getting something sticky on your fingers. It is a problem that is difficult to rid yourself of. Though you would get Biden out of office, there would be the horrible figurative stench he would leave behind, which would likely cost the FOCs a few points in the midterms. The biggest advantage of this method is that he can be removed from office even if he should refuse to resign.

Third, there is the heart attack or stroke idea. I don’t mean a real one. It would be a fake one. This would still involve the 25th amendment, but it resolves the whole smell thing. You simply notify the country that Biden has had a stoke and he will not be able to return to the office. Who knows, you might even get a few sympathy votes.

Finally, an extreme version of the above. Simply report that he has died of a heart attack and put him in the witness protection program. There would be a big funeral and everything. One hitch here is that Biden and his wife still warrant 24 hour a day Secret Service coverage.

Still something should be manageable. If the FOCs don’t arrange something before the presidential election, just how much of an embarrassment will ole Joe be by then?

(for those unaware, FOC stands for Friends of Criminals)

Incompetence? Motive? Both?

As I think over Biden’s recent decisions, certain facts have come to mind. While he does appear to be incompetent, I am beginning to wonder if there might be a motive involved, that is, beyond the standard democrat ones.

Let us face it. Virtually all his decisions benefit the Chinese. Could it be that the Chinese are the great puppet masters? To be sure, they paid untold millions to Biden’s son, and hence to Biden. Not only that, apparently, they took part in the rigging of the election. To be sure, they were the ones who communicated with the voting machines.

It is obvious that Biden owes the Chi-coms big time. That would mean that Biden is a traitor: perhaps by intention, perhaps by blackmail. So, is Biden incompetent or a turncoat. It is difficult for me to determine for certain. Then again, he might be hiding his lack of loyalty behind his incompetence. Or maybe the Chinese are concealing their control behind his incompetence.

Regardless, it is a question that should never need to be asked. It is a matter which only comes to mind because of his cozy dealings with the Chinese and the utter disastrous decisions he is making.

Either way, he boldly feels he is safe in whatever he does. He always has the media to protect him. Hence, the media must take responsibility for his huge foul-ups. They helped put him in office and they provide cover for him every day that he holds office. This prompts the question, is the media in league with the Chi-coms?

The founders gave freedom to the press to protect us from the government. Now who protects us from the media. The founders never contemplated such all out sedition by the media.

Insurrection…NOT!

After nearly seven months of highly biased investigation, no one has found any evidence of insurrection from Jan 6. Where are the apologies from the speaker. Where is the headline of admission from the New York Times.

There were lots of headlines and accusations day by day until now. I guess the cat’s got Pelosi’s tongue. Why won’t she admit she was all wet. (She did arrange the impeachment of the former president with what she knew were false accusations.) What happened to the media, especially the New York Times. Could it be that they live in fear of admitting they really messed up big this time?

Of course not. They don’t care. The lie has served its purpose. Why should they do anything to correct that.

By the way, where are the compensations for the abuse of the private citizens that were improperly arrested and imprisoned. If I were among them and I could find a good lawyer, I would try to put together a class action suit. I might even go after Pelosi and a few news agencies. Who knows, after getting a few wins, I might even go after the big social media.

By the way, maybe President Trump should try going after Pelosi for false prosecution. It likely would not work, but it might give her a start.
