Public Schools

When our forefathers set up our government, they did a wonderful job.  There are a few suggestions I have for a change to the constitution, but by and large, they did a much better job than I ever would.  It would stand to reason they had a good look at what they didn’t want.

Unfortunately, I do believe they overlooked one major thing.  I can understand it.  It could not have been foreseen in the day.  The hitch is that now it is very likely too late.  It would seem that the federal government has crept into our education system.

They gave us the first amendment to keep the government out of publishing papers.  However, when the government controls what is taught in our schools and colleges, it really amounts to the same thing.  Our education system is horrible at teaching as compared to most developed nations.  On the other hand, it is very good at indoctrinating.  Worse yet, they are bound and determined to prevent private schools wherever possible.

The instant that anyone brings up the possibility of a penny going to a private school, it is about the same sound as when I accidentally step on my dog’s tail.  They don’t even want any money paid toward such private schools being tax deductible.  As such, people who do send their children to private schools end up paying twice.

Certainly, there are two reasons they don’t want private schools to thrive.  Already, statistics show that kids who go to private schools, or those that are homeschooled, do so much far better.  Their academic measures are better in every way.  Also, they are generally better citizens.

To add to the indictment of the public schools, the private schools provide the better education at about half the costs.  Certainly, the NEA does not want that getting around.

If students that normally do poorly were to be put into private schools and they suddenly started doing well, it would really give the public schools a black eye.  They certainly would not want that.

Worse yet, they would never get a chance to indoctrinate any student permitted to go to private school.  It would take them out of the reach of the NEA and the government.  Now you know why the government wants your children in their schools.  And woe to the parent who complains about them being indoctrinated.  And woe to anyone who complains about the public system.

 

Lower the Ocean

`It would seem we are in dire danger of flooding as the result of the ocean overflowing its shorelines.  Okay.  Let us assume this is true.  If so, it is very important for us to do all we can to prevent it, or at least slow it down.  I have two suggestions on how we can do it.

Firsts, for years we have been filling in large areas of the ocean.  Look at all they did at Dubi where they made the big artificial islands.  Parts of The San Francisco are landfills too.  We need to reverse this.  We can dig out the earth from below the oceans and haul it up onto the land.  The ocean waters will fill it in and, at the same time, it will raise the level of the land.

Second, we can pump ocean water up onto the land.  From what I understand, The Dead Sea is shrinking.  Also, the Salton Sea in southern California is shrinking too.  We could pump a gallon or two into these two places and it would improve both places.  I’m sure there are a few other places where we can put a few gallons without disturbing the ecology.  In fact, it might even improve the ecology.  Can you imagine someone fishing in the middle of the Saudi Desert… or maybe the Sahara for that matter.

By the way, if we pump enough ocean water into the desert, they might be able to make a big tourist area.  That way, when the Saudis run out of Oil, they charge fees for us to visit their desert riviera.  Can you imagine boating across the Sahra?  Or if they dug a few canals, they could use them for shipping.

Then again, if we solve the problem, those worshiping climate change would lose one of their alarms.  Then again, maybe not.  They just might start complaining that the oceans levels are falling.

Why Does Everyone Compare People to Hitler?

It seems these days, every time I turn around, someone is comparing someone to Hitler.  It is as if Hitler was the worst man that ever lived.  Actually, hardly thinking, I can think of at least three men worse than Hitler.  By the way, they were all communists: Lenin, Stalin and Mao Tse-tung.  Each of them killed far more than Hitler.

I’m not trying to say that Hitler is any less a villain, but it would seem that the communist leaders are immune to being used for comparisons.

So when people try to compare President Trump to Hitler, it is nice to know they don’t want to compare him to the worst of the worst.

Nonetheless, they are showing their ignorance.  Hitler was trying to gain utter control of all the world.  President Trump is trying to return fredoms that the socialists are trying to take from us.  President Trump is trying to counter the efforts of the globalists that would like to put the whole world under the terror of one world government.

Actually, I don’t think it is ignorance at all.  Those pushing socialism know exactly what they are trying to do; seek power.  They want to control all we do and all we think. Then, President Trump had the audacity and the courage of getting in their way.

Mayor Pete’s Oversight

Mayor Pete would do well to put aside his pride and remember Who ultimately makes the rules.  If he doesn’t get right with Jesus Christ before meeting Him face-to-face, homosexuality will be amoung his least conserns.  God will not likely be impressed by smart-allecy remarks, especially the ones where he implies he has some say-so in what is right or wrong.  He needs to remember that when we think we are smarter than God, we are always wrong.

Worth repeating

Post 9/11, we need to know who enters OUR country.  Rona McDaniel said something to this effect.  I don’t know if it is an exact quote but it is something well worth repeating.  However, some of those dummycrats haven’t a clue.  Others don’t care.  It is sort of like the character that said that we have two problems in this country, ignorance and indefference.  I suspect that he had the dummycrats in mind.

Then again, there are those who know and do care.  They are willing to ignore it in hopes of acquiring power.  Almost all dictators of the twentieth and twenty-first century have relied on socialism to obtain their control of civilization.  The rest were mostly religeous fanatics such as Muslims.

So far, I haven’t noticed any true Christian that offered anything but feedom.  By the way, that does not include the Catholics, Seventh Day Adventests and such.  We do know they they do not truely preach freedom or Christianity.  They only teach their religeon.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

A Point of Fact About NAZIs

President Trump cannot be a NAZI.  Point of fact… NAZI are socialists.  Hitler was a socialist.  President Trump is not socialists.  He is a capitalist and does not like socialism.  When someone calls our president a NAZI, they are just showing their ignorance.  Then again, why should anyone be surprised.  It is why I call them dummycrats, a title they well deserve,

Farmland

I was seven when I moved to the small city of Garden Grove, California.  A year or so later, they started building Disneyland in another small city called Anaheim.  From time to time, we passed by the construction and we could see it from the highway.

One day, it was all orange groves.  Then, in a few days, when the heavy equipment was done, it was all dirt.  Then things started appearing.  It started taking shape.  Where the dirt once was, small rivers appeared.  The most notable thing we could see was Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.  We could also see Captain Hook’s ship.  When the park first opened, it was called The Chicken of the Sea and they served tuna sandwiches on it.  Last time I visited the park, Carnation had taken over the ship, and, need I say, they changed the name of the ship.

The whole area around the park continued to be orange groves, but that quickly changed.  Nowadays, you would have to search for a while to see a grove anywhere around the park.  Truth be known, you likely won’t find any orange groves around Disneyland.  For that matter, I don’t think you will find many in the county, if any.

I remember going to Newport Beach on weekends.  On the way back, we bought strawberries.  There were dozens of farms on both sides of Harbor Blvd and we bought all the  strawberries we wanted for little more than a dollar.  I don’t know for sure, but I would guess they don’t grow strawberries along Harbor Blvd. anymore.  For that matter, they may not grow them in any of Orange County.

When I was stationed at MCAS El Toro, I saw them growing crops yearround around the base.  They actually grew three crops a year.  I suspect that those fields in the area helped to support millions of people.  They grew lettuce, cabbage, and all sorts of stuff.

Nowadays, there are houses and businesses where the farms once were.  I don’t know the reasons.  No one told me but I can guess.  One thing I do know.  The value of the land skyrocketed.  I must conclude that the taxes on the land went up too.  Besides, the farmers likely saw the benefit of selling out.  They were likely able to sell the land at a small fortune.

A farmer sells his land, and a few months later, a bunch of houses grow up where there were once orcherds.  You drive from Garden Grove today to Newport Beach and you’ll not see any strawberries.  Disneyland and the area around it have become one hotel and motel after the other.  About the only trees you see in the area anymore are in Disneyland… and they are made from concrete.

No.  That is not completely true.  The roads are lined with palmtrees.  Some of the homes have one or two orange trees growing in their backyard.  Some people might grow peaches or tomatoes in their private gardens.

The problem is that farmers are being driven off prime farmlands.  I am sure that it is occurring all over the country.  So now, we have more and more people and we have less and less land with which to feed them.  Even worse, the land they do have is lower and lower quality.

I suspect that the Los Angeles, Orange County and Riverside County land as they once were could likely feed the whole country.  All three counties were at one time able to harvest three huge crops a year.  Now, Riverside is the only county left… and civilization is now creeping into Riverside.

As I look at it, I think, what a shame?  What do we do when we have houses and businesses on all the farmland?

The problem is being aggravated by illegal immigrants.  In a country where we have over 350 million, over 25 million came here illegally, either them or their parents.

Many believe that they are not a problem, but there is a fact that we must face.  There is a limited amount of land in this country.  There will never be any more.  We can not manufacture it.  Every time an illegal alien enters our country, it is just one more with which our children and grandchildren must share.

Of course, it means little to the millionaires, but to the rest of us, it means we pay more to have a place to live.  That is true if you buy or rent.  It also means we pay more in taxes and it also means that the farmers will have less land on which to grow the crops we need.  That means that the cost of food increases.

At this point, it is hardly noticeable.  Eventually, it will be easy to see.  The problem is that by then, it will be too late.  Returning illegal aliens is already difficult.  Returning their sons and daughters will be impossible.

It is time to build the wall.  It is time to stop them before they get into the country.  Then we will not have to return them.  What’s more, they won’t even try to enter.  The caravans will stop.  It will be better for us.  It will be better for them.  It is better that they improve their countries instead of destroying ours.

BUILD THE WALL!!!
