Triple Purpose for Incarceration

I hear the arguments repeatedly about the reason for incarceration, that is, imprisoning people.  Mostly, the only things discussed is punishment and rehabilitation.  Certainly both are valid.  When a person lives in fear of being imprisoned, they are more likely to obey the law as well.

However, there is a third very important reason for locking people up.  It keeps the bad guys off the street.  If the bank robber is in a prison cell, he can hardly practice his selected trade.  The murderer will not be as apt to murder and the rapist is not likely to rape.

Perhaps the most important result is that the child abuser cannot abuse children.

When the dummycrats turned all the criminals lose on the streets, (mainly NY city) they have but three  things they should expect.  The thieves will steal.  The killers will kill and the rapists will rape.  Indeed they should not be surprised when the child abusers abuse children.

Then again, they are dummycrats.  Can we really expect them to perform such complex reasoning.  While it is true that the chances of catching any disease in prison is higher, is that a reason to endanger the rest of us.

Nadler vs AG Barr

Okay…. lying is bad.  Turning a blind eye to robbery, destruction of public and private property, and murder is a whole new dimension.  While people rob stores and destroy the shops, Representative Nadler intentionally turns a blind eye.  While people are assaulted and even killed, Nadler ignores it.  He calls the riots peaceful demonstrations.  Then, of course, when the rioters attack law officers who are protecting our courthouses, he blames the marshals for causing the confrontation.

I, for one, am calling for the man, or should I say monster, to turn in his resignation immediately.  Either he is in favor of all the above or he is ignorant of it.  I don’t know which is worse.  Either way he is not fit to set foot on the floor of the house.

Moreover, the dummycrats are aiding and abetting.  I saw AG Barr testify yesterday.  I saw as they asked questions with false premises and expected a yes or no answer… this under oath.  Then, of course, any time he tried even the shortest explanation, they cut him off and said, “Reclaiming my time.”

The truth is, they had no  intention of hearing anything the Attorney General had to say.  They just wanted a platform from which to launch their vile lies and belittle a good man.  The truth is they all should be ashamed but that will never happen.  The have no shame.  They have no conscience.  All they want is to destroy the president who foiled their plans to take control of the nation and then, the world.

I have also watched the news coverage on many channels after the AG Barr’s testimony.  It has become clear to me that, with a few exceptions, their goal is to hide the truth.  Clearly they have chosen their side and, for a news agency, that is not a compliment.

For those of whom I spoke, there is no hope to rejoin the human race.  For those who believed them, there is little hope them as well.  If you have hopes of being taken over by one world government, you will be in favor of the above.  For those in favor of freedom, it is time to make them your foes.  They have already made you their enemy.

Hand to Hand

In the Marines, I learned the phrase to mean dealing with the enemy at close range, generally with or without weapons.  Let’s face it, though the rifle is the marines best friend, sometimes it runs out of ammo.  Sometimes, the enemy closes to a point that shooting him is not an option.  The one who walks away from such an encounter is likely the one best prepared for it.  Also, of course, it does very much depend on the frame of mind.  A hesitation of a fraction of a second can determine who lives to fight another day.

This post, however, mostly has nothing to do with the subject.

You see, one of the methods the dummycrats use to gain power is the giveaway method.  While they give with one hand, they take with the other.  They convince many to look to the government for provision.  To date, we have at least a dozen or so giveaway programs…money for nothing.

In some regards, this can be good.  People who have genuine disabilities have needs and we are a generous people.  In many other countries, the blind must resort to begging.  (In this country, perfectly healthy people beg.)  However, when people without handicaps make it a point to rely on handouts to live, it causes problems.

Most important, it makes it more difficult for those with real needs.  When people approach me for a dollar for gas to get home, I tell them to get a job.  Okay.  Maybe they really need the dollar.  Maybe they really have a temporary problem.  The thing is, for every one that has a real problem, likely 20 beggars are using deceit.  They are professional beggars and the ruin it for those who really have hit a bump in the road.

Nowadays, we have another form of begging, the government dole.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the only folks who asked for handouts were people who really need them.  My guess is that at least 2 out of 3 people could make it on their own without being a drag to society.  (not based on any facts)  They see the opportunity and they grab it.  Some feel a little guilty at first.  Then they look around and realize that they are far from being alone.  Indeed, many are even more guilty.

Their is however, a more menacing problem.  The government owns those who are on the dole.  It means, if you want to continue to receive your payments, you must jump through the right hoops.  Worse yet, you must vote for the right people.  I mean, what happens if and when someone gets into office that expects able-bodied people to go out and get a job?

The check you receive from your Uncle just might also be your leash.  Just maybe, before you cast your next vote, you might reverse your thoughts.  You might start asking the question, which candidate might cause you the most harm.  For as soon as the sun rises each morning, the dummycrats’ ultimate goal is to control you.  With the one hand they give.   All the time, they are getting ready to take your money and your freedom from you with the other hand.

The thing is, it is not just your freedom you are selling, but everyone’s.  I guess, in a way, it really is hand to hand combat.  Only it is not our lives at stake, but our liberty.  Only, from this fight no one will walk away but those who have control.  Once the dummycrats have their control, they will take away the free-everything and make you work.  The thing is, they will also pay less.

You doubt my word, study your history.  It is how they took over Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela.  Read “Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx.  He lays out the whole roadmap and the socialists follow it to the letter.  They have told us how they will take us over and they succeed even though we know their plans.

And, by the way, it really isn’t about socialism.  It isn’t even about communism.  Truth be told, those who are trying to take over could care less about either of them.  They are just convenient tools they use.

Their real goal is control.  To gain that control, they give with one hand while they take with the other.  Of course, they don’t this with their money, but with ours.  Still, people blindly follow.  It is the oldest scam in the world.  They dupe by promising something for nothing.  It has worked since the beginning of civilization.  It is a proven method and they have honed it to a grand and treacherous scheme which is based on the false doctrine of communism.

(side note: it is in the Marx’s writings that you find “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”  Some try to attribute it to the Bible, but it is not there.  It sounds good, but it is folly.  Every place it has been tried it failed, including China.  Without stealing ideas from other countries, they would still be using abacuses for banking.)

In the end, it is simply another power grab, a new dictatorship.  However, this time, it just might go worldwide.  This would mean that the freedom our fathers fought for will cease.  It will be no more.  It won’t even exist in history.  Those in control will make sure of that.

 


By the way, I write books.  You can find my books on amazon.com/author/story_teller.  The reason I bring this up here is that I wrote several books with the concept of controllers and floaters in them.  Unfortunately, there are no floaters, but if there were, they would take on the controllers and keep them, so to speak, under control.

The books are not a series but simply a ‘group’.  They can be read in any order.  However, I would suggest starting with, “The Floater.”  It is the first one I wrote and it establishes some premises.

You can preview most Kindle books on your Kindle, computer and, or many other platforms.  You can do this simply by clicking on the book you want to preview.  On the other hand, you can simply download the preview.  Neither will cost you a dime.  If you should decide you want to order any of my books, most of them are on paperback as well as Kindle,  You will save by using the Kindle format, which, again, can be read on computers as well.  By the way, you can also download them to most of your phones.  I know.  I tried it and it works well.  Oddly, I found it very easy to read.  I even considered using the phone instead of my Kindle.  It would save carrying around two devices.  I abandoned it though.  Reading on my phone really caused a drain on my battery.  Also, the Kindle has a few features that the phone doesn’t.

Listen?  I can’t believe myself.  A couple of decades ago, someone would have considered me crazy for suggesting that you read a book on a phone.  Strange thing these new phones. You can read books, play games, send e-mails and oddly, some people even use them for talking.  There was actually one case where I saw two people talking to each other on the phone…while they sat across a table from each other.

An Old Joke

A long time ago, I heard a joke about an optimist.  I am going to risk repeating it here.  I hope it is not copyrighted.  If it is, I apologize.

The story goes that the optimist fell off a 40 story building.  As he passed each floor, he was heard to say, “I’m alright so far!”

Naturally, if it were real, that last floor would be a disaster.

My reason for telling the story is that it does somewhat illustrate the attitude of the dummycrats.  While the looting and pillaging went on, the dummycrat mayors, the major news media and, of course, our wonderful dummycrat US Representatives all shout out in unison, “We’re okay so far!”

While the fires are being set and the bullets are flying, they say, “It’s okay.  They are just lawfully demonstrating.  So far, things are just fine.”

The problem should be easy to see, though the dummycrats have chosen to ignore it.  Eventually, they will hit bottom.  The problem is that they will not be the only ones paying the price.  We all will.  Moreover, when the disaster becomes apparent, even to them, they will beg and plead for help.

As usual, it will be the adults that will have to bail out the immature and thoughtless.

Then, there is the bigger possible problem.  If they wait too long, the bailout might not be possible.  It just might be too late.  It is the danger of not looking before you leap.

What’s Next?

Many people speak about the monuments and statues.  The question I ask is, “What’s next?”

In every country where tyrants took over, it was always preceded by one thing, the destruction of books.  Hitler and his minions burned them by the millions.  Lenin had bond fires fueled by the pages of the past.  However, for him it was not so difficult.  He was only taking over from another tyrant, the Tzar.  Many had the desire to forget his rule.

The current communists have the desire to take over this country, but they are starting with the monuments and statues, which is a real part of our history: good or bad.  Indeed, they ignore that good which they did while magnifying their small faults.  To be sure, they preach about the spec in Jefferson’s eye while they ignore the beam in their own eyes.

My question has an answer, the books.  They will begin destroying the books.  Mark my words.  Very likely, within the decade they will start removing books from our shelves and they will persecute those who write anything contrary to their gods.

They will not need laws or rules.  Political correct will be all they will need.  No one has the will or the power to stand against the tirade of those who love evil and hate good.

Eventually, of coarse, they will go after the one book they hate most and the one person Whom is the main target of their hate.  They have already removed God from our schools.  It is a matter of time before they will eliminate Him completely, or so it would seem.  To be sure, they will prevent the publishing of the Bible and any of its teachings.

Without doubt, it will lead to the downfall of the biggest and best experiment ever tried.  It is their design.  It is their goal.  If and when this happens, it will be one of the world’s greatest disasters.  When they take God out of our lives, hate and those who love hate will prevail.  It began with compromises.  As the compromises continue, it will end in our downfall.  The compromises never move toward the good, only toward the communists and their goals.

When they win, we will lose.

 

The Problem with Paradise

I was 7 when we moved to a city in Orange County, Calif.  At the time, it was just about as close as a person could get to paradise on earth.  The temperature was mild just almost year-round.  The area was relatively crime-free and there was always something to do.

Sometimes we went to the beach.  At other times, we went to the park.  There were many to choose from.  By the way, we could also go to the playgrounds of nearby schools.  The lawyers had not yet ruined things for us.  Nowadays, playing on school playgrounds is forbidden.  The schools are afraid of being sued.

So now they build fences around the schools in an attempt to keep the kids from using the playground equipment, which by the way works only marginally.  Most kids know how to climb fences.  However, putting up fences does decrease the liabilities of the schools.

The problem was that people kept visiting the area.  Then, when they realized how nice the area was, they decided to move there.  During the time from the early 50s, people started moving to California, and especially the Orange County area.

By the way, as if that wasn’t enough, people also started moving in from Mexico… illegally.

Now the area is marginally overpopulated.  It is no longer a paradise.  If I may paraphrase Yogi, no one goes there anymore.  It is too crowded.  It is why I moved out of the state.  Don’t get me wrong.  I do miss the weather.  I certainly miss the beaches.  In this part of the country, it is hard to find a place to swim unless you own your own pool.

It just is that there are too many people in Orange County.  Worse yet, most of those who moved in are dummycrats.  The whole state is being run by people who aren’t qualified to run a birthday party, let alone a state or city.

It is the problem with paradise.  Given enough time, too many of the wrong people will move in and destroy it.  It is true at the city level, the county level, the state level and certainly the country level.

Those seeking the paradise are the vary ones who seek its destruction.  They seek to destroy our constitution, our history and our culture.  Once they are gone, then paradise is gone.

Still, to most of those in this world, the United States is paradise.  However, some want to make sure that won’t last long.  They have opened the borders and invited one and all to enter.  Soon we will wake up and realize that we all would be better off going somewhere else.

The problem with that is that… there will be nowhere else.  The moon is not an option, not yet anyway.

Experience

Without a doubt, we can say that the wise person learns from his experience.  However, as for me, I like to profit from the experience of others.  Mostly, it costs me less.  Then again, maybe I am wrong.  After all, I am hardly one to give advice.  I am basically living off my Social Security at 72.  (Some retirement)

Nonetheless, I have no bills other than insurance, utilities and taxes.  Unless some unforeseen disaster comes along, I’ll do just fine.

Then I look at all these cities governments that want to do away with their police.  OK.  Fine.  I don’t think it is such a good idea but if that’s what they really want, it is their decision to live with.  Even so, I suggest they hold off for a month or two.  When the other cities meet with disaster, then the cities that hold back will be able to learn from the mistakes of the others.

On the other hand, if your city officials launch right out and do away with the police right away, then the other cities will learn your mistake and so will you.  Then, all the police you did have will be gone and reorganizing a new department will take far too long, not to mention the time it will take to replace all the police officers.

By the way, in this case, the cost of the experience might be more than money.  It will very likely cost lives as well: black, brown and white.  It will likely hit the blacks worst of all.  That would make the lesson very expensive for you and even more for your constituents.  Then again, I have been wrong a time or two.  It just might cost you far more than you would ever have ever thought.

Then, we all will be able to file this under dumb ideas.  The tragedy is that still won’t learn.  It is the nature of dummycrats.  They keep trying the same old things and expecting something different.  The fact is, there are some folks who are bad and need to be locked up, for their good as well as society.  To do this, we need police, district attorneys and courts.  Without them, even some honest people break the law.

The Facts

Fact 1: People who steal are thieves.

Fact 2: People who needlessly burn down businesses are arsonists.

Fact 3: After all is said and done, hundreds, perhaps thousands of businesses will never return.  Some will move; some will simply fail.

Fact 4: The values of the properties in the areas will be depressed for decades.

Fact 5: The only people who will gain from the riots are the instigators.  Those who live in the area will suffer.  To be sure some will leave.  Some will have to settle for lesser jobs or no job at all.

Fact 6: Those who will suffer the most are the minorities, especially the African-Americans.  They will be the ones who will live in the depressed neighborhoods.  By the way, many of the merchants who will lose their businesses are African-American.

Question: Where is the justice for those who will lose their businesses and/or homes?  I know it is a dumb question.  Everyone knows that they will receive no justice.

The fact is… the whole idea of rioting was and is a bad idea.  The fact is, every one of the cities where there were riots were run by dummycrats.  How is that working out for the minorities?

Open Question for One and All

Former UN Ambassador under Obama (Samantha Power) requested the unmasking of several people (around 7 if memory serves me properly) who were in the Trump campaign.  My question is simple, Why?  What purpose did it serve?  Certainly, it can’t have had anything to do with Russia.

I cannot imagine that her job would involve any need to unmask anyone.

For me, it would seem to shoot a hole in their logic that all the unmasking was justified.

I mean Samantha Power, seems a nice woman.  Of all those on the Obama administration, she seemed to me the least objectionable.  So far, I have no idea who she unmasked and, of course, I have no idea why.

Naturally, I don’t have a list of duties for the position, but, as near as I can tell, she was not much more than a mouth piece for Obama and, hopefully, the United States.  So, if anyone can give me a reason that she had for unmasking anyone, please let me know.

Personally, I have about come to the conclusion that all permission for unmasking should require the president’s explicit signature.  That way, he would not be given that wonderful “plausible deniability” that Obama has relied on.  It would seem every time someone asks him about any of it, he claims he had no knowledge of it.  Either he is lying or his staff kept a lot of secrets from him.

Moreover, it displayed how little the Obama crew respected the law and the incoming administration.

Don’t You Just Love Lawyers?

I saw a commercial the other day that floored me.  The lawyer said that we should never feel bad for the other driver.  The other guy’s insurance will pay, not the other driver.  If the other guy doesn’t have insurance we won’t sue him.

Dah!

Now that makes sense.  The lawyer just might be rather smart but, clearly, he thinks I’m dumb.  Just what kind of lawyer will go after someone who has no means of paying the judgment?

The truth of the matter is that there is one thing that the lawyer is interested in, his forty percent.  Therefore, he will only sue someone with money or someone with insurance.  It would be stupid to go after someone who has no way to pay.  If he did, then even if he won, he would still lose.  He would be out the time and legal expenses.  …and his forty percent of nothing would still be nothing.


I have nothing to back it up with, but my best guess is that one of the biggest causes of the increase in insurance are lawyers.  Indeed, if you take the lawyers out of the settlements, the cost of insurance would likely decrease by a third, maybe more.

Certainly, this is true about auto insurance, but maybe even truer in other things as well.  Consider the doctor.  He must carry insurance to cover all suits, especially those that have no basis.  Most suits are settled to prevent the larger court costs.  The doctor says, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

His insurance company says “It doesn’t matter.  Settle or you are on your own.”

It happens every day.  The doctor does nothing wrong and the lawyer walks off with 10 or 20-thousand dollars.  In most cases, the lawyer knows he has no case but he sues anyway, knowing the doctor will settle.

Do you think this doesn’t affect you?  Think again.  A big part of those doctor’s fees goes to pay the malpractice insurance.  Every time you pay a doctor, or the health insurance premium, some of it goes to those lawyers.

Every time you buy a somewhat dangerous product like a lawnmower or even a toaster, some of what you pay is going to go to line the pockets of those lawyers.  Every time you buy medicine, guess what.  Pharmacies must pay for insurance too.  Sometimes, they don’t have enough insurance and they go bankrupt paying the judgments.

Lawyers continually go in search of prey, just as a tiger shark.  Then, when they find it, you see the ad on the TV the next day.  They dare not delay.  They know if they do, some other lawyer will beat them to the pay dirt.

On the other side of the coin, some companies knowingly do things wrong.  Well, actually it isn’t the company.  It is some person or persons within the company.  So, the big corporation goes bankrupt and all the employees are without jobs.  Meanwhile, the character who truly caused the problem retires with a million-dollar golden parachute.  The only people who walk away unscathed are the lawyers, both sides, and the culprit who took the short cut to save a dime or two in the manufacturing process.

By the way, the public loses too.  The product that was being made was a good one.  Now we must do without it.  Don’t you just love lawyers?


By the way, the main reason it works this way is that it is mainly lawyers who write the laws.  They write the laws to benefit the laws, not the folks like you and me.
