A Little Encouragement

A republican born in Mexico just got elected to House representative in a district heavily Hispanic. If that sort of thing happens too much more, the FOCs will seal off the border tighter than a bank vault. Also, ICE will get really busy flying illegal aliens home.

Very likely all that empathizing for all those marching north will disappear faster than a rabbit into a magician’s hat. All those dems will show their real colors like a color wheel. Oh. And by the way, they will try to convince us all that it was the way all along.

Cutting Costs

Joe says it’s not his fault. He says that there’s nothing he can do about it. Yet since he occupied the Oval Office, things have been going up, fast…gas, milk, cars, rent, cable, dining out, etc, etc.

I’m retired now so I thought I was immune somewhat from the increase in gas costs. Wow! Was I wrong! I mean I only fill my 13 gallon tank every other week but it over costs twice as much to. Every time I go into the grocery store, it costs me $130 or more to get out…and we visit the local restaurants quite often.

The realization has hit me. It’s time to cut costs or our bank accounts will start shrinking. So I’ve started preparing a list of things we won’t need.

1st. Cable and internet. They are really nice but we don’t need them. Dropping them will say more $150 a month. I’ll have to rely on the old antenna for entertainment. Oddly, I’ll miss the DVR more than the stations. Other than a few news stations, I watch very little. Though I must admit I will miss watching Hannity, I can still listen to him 3 hours on the radio. Besides all this, they raise their costs every now and without my permission.

2nd. Cell phones. This one is painful for a number of reasons. Mostly I, it is a matter of emergencies. For instance, if I need to call a tow truck or I have an accident. The alternative to T-mobile is going with the cheapest company I can find.

3rd. We will need to eat at home more. I don’t mind cooking. I just don’t like the clean up. Besides, with just the two of us, we end up wasting a lot. I hate that. It rubs me the wrong way. Well, the going green folks would like it. It would cut back on my fuel usage. On the other hand, those at the local eateries wouldn’t like losing my business. On the other hand the cable company will not miss me. In Indeed, they sort of act like they want to get rid of me.

Beyond that, I guess I will have to go back to work. I’ve already considered that option. I’d already be punching time clock but my wife panics when she’s left alone. I guess if Joe keeps running things, I’ll have to figure out something.

The Biggest Fear of Our Forefathers

As they were froming the federal government, one fear drove them more than anything else. It is the reason for having 3 separate parts:legislative, executive and judicial. Each has its own powers and limits. That way, the hope was that no one person or group of people would exceed their authority.

In addition, they added 10 amendments. If you study them carefully, you’ll see that, while each has its purpose, collectively they have 1 purpose, to protect the individuals from the government.

Now, why did they feel the need for protection from our government. It’s because they were afraid of the tyranny of the majority.

Without the bill of rights, the majority could take control of the government. Then, ironically it could be ruled by a small minority. If you doubt the fear to be valid, look at what we have now, a one party rule.

The hope of the forefathers was that a free press would keep them in check. On the contrary, they are doing all they can to assist the overthrow of our constitution.

Now the Bill of Rights is on the verge of being trodden under the feet of socialists. They hate freedom of religion and they are destroying our rights to have our say. They want to remove our right to defend ourselves. I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture.

Still, I must add one more remark i heard lately. It would seem that the dems interpret the 10th amendment as reserving all powers not specified in the Constitution to the democrat party.

Maybe it’s a joke, but I am sure they would accept said power without a second thought.

To be sure, we just might be realizing the tyranny of the majority within the decade. It was the primary fear of the framers of our Constitution and today, the threat stands before us and it isn’t even well hidden. What a legacy to leave for our children, especially considering the freedom we inherited.

A Question About Safety

I hear all these suggestions to improve safety, AFTER all the shootings. It brings to mind my question, just how many of these victims would still be alive if we continued to have Christian prayer in our schools?

Just 1 minute of prayer daily might have saved, maybe half those killed. Who knows? It might have even saved some of the killers.

You may emphatically said no. The truth is that none of us knows this side of infinity. Still, how horrible it would be to find out that 2 minutes of sincere prayer each day would have saved them all.

I just wish we didn’t have to die to realize the truth.

Then another question comes to mind. What if we did find out? What if somehow God told us. Would it make a difference? Would we begin prayer in our schools? I mean some folks are very defiant. Some folks pretend they care but their only interest is power. They feign interest in saving lives while their real interest is in taking our guns and other Constitutional rights.

As an aside, I find it interesting that the same people who are in favor of gun control for the safety of our children are also in favor of open borders. I mean they want to allow killers, people carrying deadly diseases, deadly drugs and human slavery to stream south to north at rates none of us know.

One aspect we can and do measure are the deaths from fentenyl. Let’s face it. The loss of life due to all shootings is horrible but it is miniscule as compared to those killed by drugs.

It’s the Saltwater!

For many years, I’ve wondered why almost all the people in states with coastlines seem to have lost their abilities to reason. California and New York, the states with the most coastline are the states are also the states with the least people with good reason.

Then, I considered Chicago. OK. They have no saltwater but they do have a coastline. I guess I need to modify my theory, all coastlines.

Wait a minute! Maybe Florida has more saltwater coastline than any other state.

The question does, however comes to mind. Is it the coasts that warp the minds or does the water simply attract those who lack reasonable reasoning.

There seems to be no doubt. You look in any of the states with coasts and the problem is always worse the closer they are to the water. Consider Long Island and San Francisco. They are almost surrounded by water.

Maybe we need to quickly put some kind of barrier arround Florida before they become the liberal capitol of world.

A Problem With the January 6 Logic

The number 1 logical reason that we hear from the FOCs for the January 6 Capitol building event is that it was provoked by President Trump. The problem with that logic is that he was the only one who tried to stop it by authorizing national guard troops two days in advance. Nancy, on the other hand, in all her experience and wisdom turned them down, knowing of the possibility. By the way, putting a few dozen troops around the Capitol would have done the job with little or no consequences. Do you suppose she got what she wanted? Do you think, maybe she liked the idea to use it all as a club to use on the Republicans as she has. It sort of worked out convenient for Nancy, didn’t it…sort of as if she planned it all.

By the way, what happened to the Constitutional promise of a prompt trial for those arrested 1 1/2 years ago. (I would say charged over a year ago but some are not yet charged. )

One more question. Why isn’t Fauci, a real criminal, not looking out between prison bars? He is responsible for the deaths of over a million people, worldwide. It surprises me that we haven’t heard cries far and wide for his head…a year ago.

THE PROBLEM WITH BEGGING!

There is an old adage. (I know adage means old saying and saying old adage is being redundant. However, nowadays, many are unaware of that and expect the word pairing.)

At any rate, as I was saying, it is an old saying that beggars can’t be choosy. Certainly that’s so, so true today as well as when the adage was first uttered…or written, whichever.

So, the day Joe became the occupier of the Oval Office, he set this nation on a path to begging. So, it would appear his wish has come true.

About 18 months ago, the US was an exporter of energy. Now, Joe is going around, hat in hand, begging for oil. As a beggar, he will need to accept their conditions or we’ll need to cut down our forrests for fire wood to stay warm.

This would cut back on fossil fuel usage; but it sure would increase the pollution. Also, with no more trees, the birds would have to build their nests on the ground, on power lines or tops of buildings.

Maybe the better idea is as it was when Joe took office…DRILL, BABY, DRILL.

He might not like fossil fuel but it would be our fossil fuel and it would be so much better than chopping down all those wonderful trees. Still, chopping down the trees is still better than freezing to death. Besides, what do we use in the place of fire wood when the trees are gone, fossil fuel?

There are a few asides. I can’t get my car to burn wood. 2nd, with the price of oil back down at 40 dollars a barrel, it would sure slow inflation. Finally, possibly most importantly, Putin couldn’t afford to wage wars at the lower price. Neither would he be able to make his threats.

Example of Impossible

Convicting a dem in Washington, D.C

Still, most everyone has now figured out the source of Russia, Russia, Russia. I mean, you have to put on a blindfold, cover your eyes with your hands and intentionally look away to miss this one.

Besides, a few other things are now on the record such as, the whole thing was a fraud authorized and likely thought of by Clinton, the one who claimed that no one is above the law. I guess she proved her own quote wrong.

Apology in Order

I guess about a week ago, Tucker Carlson used terminology something like that eye patch wearing guy. I am sure he meant it it to be derogatory.

He should remember Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX) lost his eye and nearly lost the second fighting for our country. To use such disparaging language reflects back at Tucker and Fox News. It is but one reason I am losing repect for Fox. Never had any respect for Carlson. Even less now.

As an aside, I heard an interview by Sandra Smith on News Sunday of Rep MO Brooks R ala, Every time he started suggesting fraud in last election, she started shouting over him. If he had proof positive, he’d not had a chance to present it. So much for “We report. You decide. ” It would appear she, and possibly the network decided MOs point of view would NOT be reported at any price.

Even so, Brooks got his point in, and good ones too.

Regardless, it’s the wrong argument. Many laws were were intentionally and obviously disobeyed. The most obvious one was by the sec of state of Pennsylvania. Though he admitted breaking the law, he was not charged. Had he been convicted, there would have been no penalty. Maybe fraud will never be proved, but it will forever go down as the least trusted election in history. Nothing will change that because every effort to prove fraud ended in a shutdown before it started, and the established rinos did what they could to help the FOCs.

I think MS Smith owes Rep. Brooks an apology..

However , I’m not holding my breath. I’m suggesting that no one else hold their’s either.
