If Only

If only the dems could manage foreign policy as well as they can rig elections.

(Wish I could say I thought of it myself. I heard someone quote President Trump.)

Let me add my personal remark. Maybe it would be nice if they could manage the border, improve our schools, control crime, or run an economy. Trump’s remarks make me wonder how they managed to rig the election without anyone knowing it.

Wait a minute. Everyone does know it. The dems just refuse to admit it and the media jumps on anyone who brings it up with both feet. It is the worst kept secret in history.

Polls??

I just saw a recent poll on TV in which Biden’s ability to deal with problems just dipped under 50%. I really don’t understand it. I mean it is obvious that the man hasn’t a clue about anything other than which way the wind blows. My question remains, how in the world are his polls staying so high?

I figure it one of two ways. Either the folks in the country are lacking basic common sense or those pollsters are really bending the results. I figure, for the most part, it is the pollsters. However, there are a number of folks in this country that lack basic reasoning.

Let’s face it, the man is King Midas in reverse. Everything he touches turns to a quagmire. The problems he is causing cannot totally be undone. He is causing suffering, death and he is empowering those who want to destroy us. Their desire is to kill and or enslave us.

Those who voted for the man have a big part in his failures. As everything falls apart and they may ask who caused it, They can simply look in the mirror for their answer.

It is no wonder Kamala has gone into hiding. Even she knows better than to have anything to do with Biden.

Her One Regret

I might be wrong. I have been a time or two but it is quite possible that Kamala just might really regret the day she accepted the nomination for vice-president. From now throughout eternity, she will be tied to perhaps the worst ever decision by any president of the US. It is no wonder she has gone into hiding.

It just might be a good time for Kamala to remember that mistakes don’t always have erasers. Come to think of it, it might be a good time for Biden to realize that the backspace key does not always work so well.

The Cost of Thievery

Most of us never completely consider the cost of stealing. There is the loss of revenue for the businesses. In the case of theft from an individual, it is difficult calculate, especially when someone is killed in the act. Businesses go through all sorts of things to cut down on theft but their success is limited. They use cameras, security guards and all sorts of other little things.

They use those annoying blister packs. I don’t know what they cost but they do increase cost of shipping and displays. In addition they use those little electronic alerts on some things. One time I went in the men’s room of a Walmart and found an empty blister pack with the alert device still on it. So, Walmart paid for the blister pack, the alert device and still lost the DVD. For what it was worth, I took the evidence to the manager who thanked me.

Whether you know it or not, it effects us all. It drives the costs of the products up. They have to cover the loss of the product. They have to pay for the packaging as well as the alert device. Then, of course, before you can go out the door after you purchase it, the alert device must be removed or disabled. I don’t know how many times I have set off those alarms after a legal purchase. It can get frustrating for both the store management and customer.

Then, when you get home, you need to get out your scissors and sharp knife to get the blister pack off. I wonder just how many people went into emergency rooms after cutting a finger or two in this process. That too is a cost of the theft.

On the other hand, not all theft occurs at the point of a gun or knife. Not all theft is perpetrated in stores. In the operetta “The Pirates of Penzance,” the pirate king suggests that his vocation is a relatively honest one. At least when he shows the skull and cross bones, he is honest about what he is and what he does. On the other hand, the man in the business suit will steal you blind, all the while maintaining his respectability.

Every day, I hear ads on TV, “Come to us and we will show you how to get a bunch of money for nothing.” The country is full of ambulance chasers seeking deep pockets. On the other side of the coin, there are businessmen trying to get money from the unwary. I saw an article about a man who saw an ad in a paper. “Portable digital computer, $25 dollars. Guaranteed.”

He knew there was something wrong but he figured it was worth the $25 dollars to find out what. A week later the man was the proud owner of a new abacus. To be sure, the abacus does meet the criteria of the ad. None the less, it truly was a misleading ad. In this case, there was little loss. The man kept the device and even learned to use it.

However, men in suits do rob people of their hard earned money every day. Nowadays, they use your phone instead of the newspaper or TV. I even had occasion where my doctor had to deal with a robocall right in the middle of talking to me. That doctor’s time is valuable. It is not just an annoyance. They steal valuable time from him…and his clients.

From what I understand, some men in suits ever steal entire houses. On the other hand, there are those who advertise they can stop it…for a slight price.

The last few months, we have a new type of thief. He just walks in, takes what he wants and walks out…right in front of the store security man. This adds even more expense. First, it causes the vendors to close down. Sometimes they open somewhere else. Sometimes they do not re-open at all. Either way, the honest people in the area must go somewhere else to do business. That means driving farther and paying more in gas.

I suppose, eventually, it could lead to the old method of trade. You want something from the store keeper, you go in the store, two or three at a time with a list. You pay for your purchase in advance and it is shoved out a secure window to you. I don’t know if it will ever reach such a point, but to me it is looking like it.

Then you have the worst crooks of all. They are the politicians who call themselves democrats. They steal your money by exorbitant taxation; they steal your land under eminent domain when they have no legitimate reason. Then, as if that is not enough, they steal your vote supposedly under perfect elections.

I hope you will pardon me, but what is wrong with you folks in New York, California and New Jersey. How can you even consider to vote for a FOC. Who in their right mind would vote for people charging you $12,000 a year to educate your children and then settle for kids who can’t read or do simple math. (I can do that for you at half the price.)

A Thought About Ice Cream

Picture this, a boy, 8 to 10 years old. You can chose your own age. He sits in front of a big banana split with lots of sauces, whipped cream and nuts on top of it. As he digs in, in between bites, he complains about how horrible it is. Then, when done, he stomps off and shouts how horrible it was, though he left very little behind.

Now, let’s shift things a little. Maybe we are talking about a professional athlete. Maybe we are considering a wealthy actor. On the other hand, maybe we are just speaking of a wealthy person, a self made millionaire. All the time they enjoy their freedoms and privileges as an American citizen, they complain about the nation in which they lives Come to think of it, we might be referring to a US representative, one who came from a third world country, one which is dangerous to live in and knows no freedom, especially for women.

He or she, all the time while enjoying one of the most highly prized citizenships worldwide, they simply complain about this and that and the other thing. Unlike the boy, they do not go away. I wished they would. Instead, they hold onto all that is theirs, all that this county has provided for them.

Do you see any similarity?

A Whole Lot of Disseminating Going On

Something to remember about disseminating info.

When someone is disseminating accurate info, or likey accurate info and you keep them from disseminating it while claiming it is not accurate, in effect you are disseminating a lie. In some cases, this might involve the lives of people.

Well, let’s see, the FOCs and their social media refused to let out the info on the lab production of the China virus, for over six months. They derided the Hydrocortisone only to find out it was effective in the early treatment of the virus. It would seem that one cost a few thousand lives. Then again, they don’t care. It was all about making the president look bad. I mean, how can they win the election when President Trump is doing such a good job.

Then there is the mask theory. Personally, I believe they do a little good, though I suspect it is hard to prove. There is no way a mask will stop a virus 100 thousands of an inch in diameter. Occasionally one will get caught on a fiber but if the virus is in the air it will go through that mask as if the mask isn’t there. The only way it might work is by catching droplets that contain the virus. I have no idea how effective that would be.

Let’s not forget the thing about Black Lives Matter. Sorry, the statement elevates African-Americans above all others, including Latinos Indians Israelis and Asians. (Sorry if I left any out.) Moreover, the statement has holes in it. No one in the organization seems to mind when one Black man shoots another, even if the other is only 1 or 2 years old. If some ninety year old black woman is killed, it doesn’t matter because she was not killed by a white policeman. If Black lives matter, then they matter, and they do, why don’t they matter when abortionists kill them, at the beginning of life.

These social media, AKA Big Tech, have a lot of blood on their hands. People genuinely try to save lives and big tech destroys these people, thereby disseminating bad info, thereby , in effect, killing people. We are not talking two or three lives. We are not talking hundreds, but thousands.

But then their lives matter not, no matter what their color they are. It is truly about the power. When it is discovered that the social media made a mistake, there is no apology. There is no one who pays a price. They simply make the change so that people can again make posts about the virus starting in the lab.

There is to be that there is one person who has truly disseminated bogus info for over a year and in a criminal way. Why is Fauci not in prison yet? Why isn’t he wearing an orange jumpsuit?

A Suspect Property

I am not currently in the market for any property. However, I do have a little advice for those who are. If the house has a basement and the real estate agent tells you there is no need to look at it, be suspicious. Demand to see the basement! You might also want to look in the attic as well, no matter how much they object. Indeed, the more they object, the more suspicious you should be. To be sure if you buy any house without looking in all the nooks and crannies, you deserve any and all the problems you get from not inspecting them.

The above is casual to the most obvious observer. It is one of the simplest rules in buying property, or for that matter cars, boats, planes, etc.

Yet, the FOCs have been repeating over and over, “No need for to check for voting fraud. Everyone knows there is no fraud to see here.” Where are the suspicions? Why are people not demanding to see the evidence, even though it is obvious that many have disobeyed the law, fraud or not.

The hints are starting that Pennsylvania is thinking about doing an audit. Suddenly, Biden hops on Air Force One and says, “Nothing to see here folks let’s just move along. Besides, it is bad statesmanship to not accept the results of an election.”

I saw a Pennsylvania state representative say that after deciding to have a look at the Arizona audit, his phone virtually exploded with calls telling him not to do it. “Your wasting your time. There is nothing to see down there and so forth.” I guess that representative was supposed tell that pilot to turn that plane around. He made a mistake. He should have never boarded the plane.

Question: Why all the protesting if there is no fraud. If there is none, none will be found and the republicans, like me, will all just have red faces covered in egg. On the other hand, if there is fraud found, then what happens? What do we do? We can’t tell the current occupant of The White House to pack his bags and leave. May I remind one and all, we would be plowing into new territory. The Constitution and the law does not cover it. Yet we would, for the first time, be able to say for a fact that we have an illegitimate man in the oval office. (You notice that I did not use the term president because, in a way, he would not be president.)

If you go by natural law, Biden would go to prison. It doesn’t matter though. He never knows where he is anyway. It’s all those hangers on that are taking advantage of him that I’m concerned about.

May I remind one and all, Mrs. Clinton has not accepted the results of the 2016 election to this day. Gore is still smarting because he could not get the Supreme Court to accept his growing voter fraud…remember the chads. What’s her name, the woman that lost the governor’s race in Georgia. She still does not accept her loss.

I get it. Only the FOCs get to contest elections. If a person has an R after his name, sorry, not permitted. Not allowed. It is not the statesman thing to do.

To some degree, I do agree. Gore, Clinton and what’s her name from Georgia do not have much statesman ship. However, they sure know how to cheat.

By the way, speaking of things to hide, why isn’t Fauci in prison? Why is it that he gets away with financing a pandemic without answering for it.

To Take or Not to Take… the Vaccine. That is the Question.

I’m going to make this short, which will make at least some of you happy.

Fact, the vaccine is classified experimental. I cannot imagine forcing anyone to take an experimental drug of any kind, especially someone under 18. It has already been established that it does have side effects, especially on younger people. Moreover, the youth stand to be effected over a greater time.

My conclusion, it should be taken only and completely by free will. No one should be forced to take it for any reason, though I can see people in the health industry suggesting it.

Personally, I would feel horrible if I forced someone to take any drug and then that person had a severe reaction. Then again, I’m not most people. The dems don’t care if people have complications. They don’t even care when they die. And they paint themselves as the ones who care. Need I remind you of all those that died in the nursing homes because of the “caring” act of a few democrat governess.

By the way, my wife and I have both been vaccinated. By the way, I do find it appalling that people who share my opinion get censored by big tech. They have no business censoring anyone, certainly on this subject. They likely know little more than me, maybe less. Nonetheless, they should not take away a truly informed consent.

Re-Establishing the Police

The common or preferred term is re-fund the police. It does likely speak to the original problem but if re-fund is read or inferred incorrectly, it has a different meaning altogether. Nonetheless, it does, for those of us that like Bible terms, seem that there is a little repenting going on. For those unaware, repent means to turn and go the opposite way, implying an acknowledgement of going the wrong way originally.

Consider the bus passenger realizing he is going south when he should go north. Most likely, he would repent to boarding the wrong bus. Likely, as early as possible, he would get off the one bus and get on one going the right way. To be sure, it would be ridiculous to remain on the wrong bus for any reason.

At any rate, there I go getting wordy again. The fact is that some cities realized they really messed up. I just heard that in at least one case, the repent will be by law. A judge has ordered the manning levels be re-established to city charter levels.

This all does sound wonderful and good but the fact is, the damage has been done. Those who decided to decrease the manning levels should be heavily fined for three reasons. First, many of the officers lost their jobs. Of those that didn’t they were not properly respected by the government. It severely handicapped them as well as endangered their lives, as well as the public in general. (It is possible that one or two people will not be sitting down at the dinner table anymore because of this dumb idea.)

Second, it will take a while to increase the manning levels back to where they were. Many of those who were working as officers found other jobs in other cities or other lines of work. Many would refuse to come back to work even at elevated salaries. After all, who wants to work for a city government that has no trust or respect for them.

Third, and likely most important, there was a great deal of training lost. It will take months to replace the officers but it will take years for them to have the equivalent experience and training.

It was effectively the democrats and the democrat party behind the de-fund the police movement. What they did greatly helped the criminals. It is another reason to call them friends of the criminals (FOC).

Please, if you like the things I write, tell you friends. I won’t mind; really I won’t. If you agree with what I say and the way I say it, you just might help do some good by helping to share my posts.

Compromise: Good or Bad?

Our national history is full of compromises from the beginning. Indeed The constitution has its share of them. The small sates believed the representation should be by state. The large states believed that representation should be by population. So, they compromised. The House is representation by number. The Senate was representation by state.

Perhaps the most well known compromise was about slaves. The south wanted the slaves to count in the census but they did not want them to be represented. The North threw a fit. First, they wanted the slaves to be represented, but if they weren’t, certainly they should not be counted on the census. So they compromised. Slaves were partially counted on the census but were not represented.

When I learned about this compromise, I found it disgusting, even though my family is from the south and most of them would not have agreed with me. I always found the concept of slavery revolting, though it began long before any white man set foot on this continent. And just for those of you who like to poke fun at the Bible, Abraham owned slaves…apparently many of them. Then again, the Bible does not record the history of perfect people. It just records the history, the bad right along with the good.

Then there was The Missouri Compromise. When I found out about it, I didn’t much care for that either. However, it did seem to be a way of keeping the nation from splintering but for a small time. The problem of slavery was a big one that simply did not seem to want to go away, no matter how many compromises.

Ironically, after a few more decades, the problem would likely start waning. With the industrialization, the slave would have become far less profitable, if I might use the heartless term. Steam had already come into its own with trains. It was only a matter of time before the tractors would replace the manual labor. Slaves would have been more of problem than an advantage.

To be sure, in some instances, it is more difficult to speculate about the past than the future. Maybe no one would have industrialized farming if they already had the slaves to do the work. There’s no real telling. All we know for sure is that the Civil War broke out and hundreds of thousands of men died on both sides. Eventually, the compromises failed and the war was inevitable. Besides the disagreement, there were those hot heads on both sides that just wanted to fight.

Regardless of what happened before, the war settled it. The slaves were free, though hardly any of them had any idea how to make a living. Black men and women could not read except for a few rare ones. The Northerners who were sent south for the reconstruction took advantage of that. They paid the Black man to vote, six, seven, eight times.

I think most reasonable people would find that a bad thing. Certainly those in the south did so they used a poll tax to discourage it. The north soon prevented poll tax, even though it was already legal in several northern states.

Later the south came up with a literacy test. This too was dropped by force, though I suspect it would be a very good idea. First, people that vote should know how to read. It does seem to be a simple requirement for such an important thing. Moreover, I suspect the schools would do a much better job of educating our youth, both white and Black if it became a requirement for voting.

Perhaps the worse thing that came out of the restoration of the south was the KKK. As so many such things, it began as a good thing. The carpetbaggers came down from the north taking anything and everything they could in the name of restoration. The south countered the only way they knew. After a few decades the KKK got our of hand and they had to send the FBI in to tame them, although they remained right up to the 1980s. And by the way, most of them were democrat. And by the way, it started out that their fight was not with the African-Americans but with the carpetbaggers.

And so it was, a couple small compromises made to keep the nation together almost caused them to separate. If the south had been more industrialized, indeed the US might today be in two separate parts.

There was another casualty of the whole thing. The Tenth Amendment, the one that reserves rights to the states and to the people. It has become very weak; even to the point that it is hardly brought up any more.

And now, today, the word compromise is all to often heard. When the FOCs want something, they ask for compromise. When the Republicans want a compromise, the FOCs simply dig their feet in and say no way. And so it is that every year we compromise a little more. Eventually, there will be no more room for compromise. The FOCs will have all they wanted and they will have gotten it all by compromise.

All the FOCs want is power. When they have it all, we just might want to bring the KKK back. The problem with that is that it will likely be too late. The FOCs will have all the guns. They will have used some kind of compromise to take them.
