Common Sense for Bullies

All the way through junior high, I was fairly tall, though I was on the skinny side. Mostly, the bullies left me alone. However, in the eighth grade, there was one guy much bigger than me. He was not only taller but much heavier too. I preferred avoiding fights, but he didn’t.

So, one day, against my better judgement, we faced off. Even though he had both the height and weight advantage, he decided he needed a rock to face me. After it was all over, I did have a bruise over my eye. A small wound compared to what he left with. Oddly, he never bothered me after that.

Unfortunately, after reaching high school, most everyone caught up with me in height and, of course, I was still skinny. That was when I learned a little of tact. Still, there were those who wanted to prove he was the better fighter.

Since those days, I spent a little time in the Marines and bulked up a little. I have hardly been confronted by bullies since then. There was one that wanted to fight me one night. Though he was much bigger, he was about to make a mistake. He was, well, should we say, inebriated. You might say, one good rule for any bully would be to avoid fights while under the influence. In this case, his girlfriend talked him out of it.

Thinking back over it, Jesus actually has some sound advice for bullies as well. Even though I am sure he never quite meant it that way, a bully should still pay heed to it.

“Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand?” Luke 14:31Berean Study Bible.

Of course Jesus was speaking of kings and going to war. Still, it does seem to be a good idea for bullies to avoid trying to start fights with people who are bigger than them. Moreover, they might also stay away from those who have spent nine years in the Marines. Just a suggestion. Had that man tried to fight with me, he might have hurt me, but if I hit him once, they would have carried him away in a stretcher. He was bigger. I would have had to use whatever I knew to stop him.

However, if I may, let me get back to what Jesus was talking about, warring between nations. As the implication is, even warring nations prefer to find weaker nations, as did Hitler at the beginning of his endeavors. His error was when he started going after the more powerful ones. Or as the Japanese admiral said after attacking Perl Harbor, “I’m afraid we have waken a sleeping giant.”

My conclusion from all the above is, if you don’t like war, keep yourself strong and powerful. The others may not like you but neither will they fight you. This of course means keeping any enemy from from infiltrating our borders. One enemy inside our borders can do far more damage than ten outside. Even worse, we might not be able to tell who sent him.

At this point there are many who would like to attack us and they can all take advantage of the open border Joe has provided them. The enemy needn’t fight his way in. All he need do is walk in.

I Finally Figured it Out

I get it. I’ve finally figured it out. The wealthy are trying to drive down the value of beach front property so they can buy it up. While they say the seas are rising, they keep buying properties below the predicted sea levels.

Obama has two properties that will soon be under water should his prophecy come true.

Personally, I will not believe any of them until they start building seawalls. So far, I see no hint of that. On the contrary, they keep buying the low lying expensive real estate. It is certainly clear that these FOCs don’t believe what they preach.

A side note: Some of those who have low lying mansions, just might realize that walls really do work and they just might start on their own.

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.

Questions for the FOCs

If there are so many that want the 4T bill, why do they have to do so much arm twisting to get it passed?

If there was no cheating on the election, why do they want to bury all the evidence? Why is it they don’t want the forensic experts to see it? Could it be that they know that it was not on the up and up?

Why is it that Biden doesn’t answer questions?

If they did such a good job in Afghanistan, why is it that they no longer want to talk about it? Seems to me, if they did so well, they would want to brag about it. Oh. Wait a minute. They did and that did not go over well.

Now let me see. Just why is it again that we need to spend 4.5 trillion dollars? Just who is it that has read the bill? Actually, at this point, I don’t even think it is done. Surely they will compete it before they pass it.

Just why is it that Kamala likes to laugh so hard at serious questions?

Just why is it that we need to build recharging stations all over the US. If we do and no one buys the electric cars, who will use them? Who will maintain them? For that matter, who is going to make money off them? Could it be the friends of the FOCs?

I’m sure you can think of a few questions I haven’t. However, the biggest question of all, how are we going to get them to answer any question? It is sort of like the FOCs. They never like answering questions, especially those that probe real problems. ?

YELL IT FROM THE MOUNTAINS!

There is a long history of communications. In Africa, I have been lead to believe they used drums. A couple of centuries ago, the Indians used smoke signals. In European countries, various methods were used: light generated from fire, horns or simply yelling from the mountain tops. From what I understand, that is how yodeling began. I don’t know, just what I heard.

Regardless, it does seem to be effective, assuming you conveniently have a mountain around. It wouldn’t work well in places like Kansas or Florida. I suppose drums and smoke signals would have worked better there.

Some might find it odd, but ships used to use flags… in two ways. They used semaphores, that is, a man using the position of two flags to spell out words. I would guess this method is rare today, but men learned the method up until a few years ago. Nowadays, they are more apt to use radio or, during radio silence, lights.

I must admit my ignorance of how, but sailors also hung flags from the masts of their ships. I don’t know if the flags represented words or letters, maybe both. None the less, the light, the flags, the smoke and the sound all had their simple limits. The message source had to be seen or heard.

Sometimes, in the old days, when a message was particularly important, they yelled it from the mountains. It did have its limits, but it was effective. They used relays. One person would call from one mountain, then when he heard it, another person would relay it from his mountain. It was faster than carrying a message by hand or even by Pony Express.

So it is that there is now an important message, one worthy of yelling from the mountain tops. There is a new version of the China virus. It is spread faster and more easily. The number of cases is going up fast.

And so it is that the message is being spread far and wide, “Get your shot!” The warning is being distributed far and wide, “Wear your mask! You must protect yourself and you must protect you children!”

In one case it was reported that already three teachers from one school came down with it. The hitch is that the school was not yet in session. The news report I heard did not say if the teachers were wearing their masks. My guess is that they did not wear their mask 24/7. It is just impractical.

There are problems with the messages. First, those yelling about the increase in cases, say nothing about those coming across the border spreading the disease all over the country. Every place they set foot, they are a biological bomb. I wonder why they leave that part out. Could it be that it is inconvenient to their goals? Could it be that they just don’t know about it? Do they know how saying the one thing while ignoring the other both nullifies the message and makes the messenger look pretty dopey?

Then there is the message about the mask. It would seem that it is horribly important that everyone over 2 should wear a mask to stop the spread.

Now I find that interesting. The China virus has been in our presence for over a year now. People seem to assume that they can slow the spread with the masks, but no one knows it. Not so much as one scientific study has verified it. A doctor, the one that should be put in prison says it, and it is taken as fact. (By the way the doctor has lied a lot.)

You would think after a year, someone would have done a study. Maybe someone did. It is possible. If they didn’t come out with the results they wanted, they just might put the results in the circular folder. I mean, if I were selling masks, really neat and expensive ones like Pelosi wears, and I did a study that showed that the results were negligible, maybe I would pretend I never did the study.

On the other hand, if I were an FOC, I might not want anyone to know the masks are not effective. It would remove the reason for my message I have been yelling for the last year. By the way, it just might also make me look pretty dumb.

Maybe it is time for those FOCs to get down off those mountains and seal the border, the real source of the new cases.

New Mask Guidelines

Sunday: No masks

Monday: Wear masks inside if vaccinated, outside if not.

Tuesday: Wear two masks, one backward. You may ask why backward. Why not?

Wednesday: Only wear masks while outside, especially while swimming.

Thursday: TV day. Wear masks while watching TV.

Friday: Wear one mask at a time, but change them every two hours. Rotation of used masks is not permitted. (This provision was added for those selling masks. Be sure to discard all used masks.)

Saturday: Masks must be worn. That is to say, they may not be new. They most have some wear to them, you know like those tortured blue jeans.

Okay. The whole idea is stupid. However, can anyone prove it any less accurate than any others? I have not seen any tests results that say the things do any more than reduce my oxygen saturation levels. I would suspect that if anyone proved they weren’t effective, they likely wouldn’t post it. There is little or no benefit to it. Besides, anyone that did post such a thing would be in dire danger of being drummed out of The Society of Mask Experts. The society was established by those who love to say, “Follow the science.”

(By the way, one thing I do know about them is that I can’t wear one in the supermarket more than an hour without a break. I have a grate deal of respect for those who had to wear them all day.)

When’s the last time anyone checked to see if all those illegal aliens are properly wearing their masks. Build the Wall!!

The Problem With Revolving Doors

As expected, Biden spoke of ridding the nation of guns. I guess he didn’t read my post last night. I must admit, it is a good idea to put more police out there, but only if they are properly trained and backed. If they are not backed, they effectively have no authority and they will accomplish little. Indeed, it might result in doing more harm than good.

However, his biggest problem is that he never addressed the problem of the revolving doors. If you have infinite policemen out there and they keep arresting criminals, what good will it do if they just go right back out the revolving doors? The policeman arrest the criminal; he stand before the judge. Then the culprit goes right back out the revolving door, just to commit more crimes.

The fact is that it accomplishes nothing. On the other hand, the criminal learns to have no fear of the law. Indeed, he mocks the man with the badge and laughs as he is goes through the process. He might even threaten the officer and his family. There is nothing the officer can do and there is nothing anyone else will do.

Until the revolving door is dealt with, the crime will only get worse month by month, day by day. I wrote a book, “His Protector,” that envisions a New York City close to what it is today, though maybe a little worse. At the time I wrote the book, New York was one of the safest cities in the world. It is one of the advantages of writing things that take place in the future. Never did I dream my prediction of the city would be so close to what it is today. It is about a lieutenant who was forcefully retired from the Marines and someone who is stocking him on the New York streets. Even with his martial art skills, he is afraid to walk the streets, especially at night.

I don’t know, but I would guess that is pretty close to what New York City is today and it is primarily for one simple reason, they refuse to lock up their criminals.

It is why I call the dems Friends Of Criminals (FOC). Who else would let the criminals go free as the do?! In a way, the FOCs have their own pipeline, only it is for criminals.

By the way, speaking of criminals, why is Fauci still walking free!!??

You can look at my full book list on my about page or on my Author’s page:

http://www.amazon.com/author/story_teller

by just clicking on the above line. Also, I will not mind if you tell your friends about me and the above line. Actually, if you tell your enemies, I won’t complain either.

Thank you for spending a little of your precious time with me.

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.

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.
