Election Audits, What Ifs

If I have heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times, “No evidence of fraud.” To which I respond, “If you never look for fraud you will likely never find it, especially if you intentionally turn your head at the hint of it.”

At any rate, in Arizona, they have been doing a very serious audit. To the best of my knowledge, the dems, especially those in charge of the election are doing all they can to avoid the audit. I don’t know about others, but to me that smells. It smells like something rotten.

Moreover, it would seem even before they got a good start, they have found evidence of tampering, such as missing ballots by the thousands. Moreover, after taking a better look at the Georgia election, the Georgia Sec. of State has some explaining to do…like what happened to all those chain of evidence documents.

Okay. Maybe there is not yet any evidence of fraud. However, there is already plenty of evidence of improper election procedures in at at least five states, which would be more than enough to overturn the election. Oh. And by the way, they just might find some of that evidence that one and all keep saying doesn’t exist.

That provokes the question, “What if?”

To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing in the constitution or in the statutes that would cause Biden to vacate The White House. Indeed, even if they prove he was behind it, it would take an impeachment to have him removed. Moreover, given those that might succeed him, I’m not sure anyone would want that to happen, at least not until there is a republican Speaker of the House.

As near as I can tell, there is simply no way that the election could be reversed this late in the game. If such a thing did happen, I’m not sure what the results might be. I mean, the dems are prone to suggest riots in the streets and if they had such a reversal, the threat just just might come to pass. I simply do not know if our nation could stand such a upheaval.

However, if the proof were uncovered, it would accomplish at least four things.

  1. Some of the guilty just might find themselves in orange jumpsuits. This in itself might discourage future hanky-panky.
  2. It would shut the mouths of those claiming no fraud here. It should embarrass them, but it won’t. Nothing will. However, they never will have an ounce of credibility again. Their words will forever contain the ring of being being counterfeit.
  3. Most important, there would be justification for positive changes in voting laws. When it is suggested that picture IDs should be required, they will not be able say there is no fraud. (I refer to bullet point 2)
  4. The dems will have egg all over their faces. There is no way that such fraud could have been made on the voters of the nation unless they were fully behind it. It just might result in a change in the voter registration. On the other hand, that just might be wishful thinking. When people have a D after their name, they can get away with most anything.

By the way, where is that written apologize from the media and social media media for putting their filters on the China virus? I have not yet heard one, though they have a tendency to required them from us.

By the way, why is Fauci not yet fired. Why is he not net in an orange jump suit. He played a big part in the loss of millions of lives and I have not yet heard an apology from him either. When you come right down to it, I don’t think he feels an ounce of remorse. Many have shed tears of grief because of what he did. From him, not so much as a hint of a tear. He has walked away from his crime and likely will not pay a dime for it.

Let’s Really Upset China

Seems every time someone accidentally says something that implies that Taiwan is an independent nation, China gets upset. Maybe after what they did with that virus, we ought to formally recognize Taiwan as a nation, put an embassy and everything in there. They might get upset over it but it would be the last time they would get upset about it.

Besides, it would serve them right for releasing that virus on us. They might have released it by accident, but they definitely spread worldwide intentionally, resulting in the deaths of millions.

No need to worry about this one, China. Joe would never do something like that to his buddies. On the other hand, if former President Trump got back in The White House….

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.

Economics, 101

I have but one semester of community college but I have been around a while. I have eyes in my head and I can observe. I don’t know what they teach about economics in those big colleges, but one thing I learned by first hand observation is that economies are not static. Things change. Generally they change relatively slowly, but, occasionally, things really take a turn.

I noticed in the early 70s when gas went up, so did everything else. It wasn’t long that the price of meat went up. Then, even the price of soft drinks went up. I was just a sergeant in the Marines at the time and we started making changes in our household economy too. Instead of buying Cokes, we bought Shasta soft drinks (10 cents each, those were the days). Before, we did buy New York steaks every now and then. After, nothing but ground beef. Instead of going only to name brand gas stations, I started going anywhere where I didn’t have to wait an hour in line.

I’m kind of smart. That is to say, I don’t think I was the only one scrimping on things. It was likely that way all over the country, that is except for those who didn’t need to concern themselves with the cost of gas, or milk. There are some folks who bought what they wanted and paid no attention to the price.

Then there were the businesses. I imagine they were cutting corners. Do you know that at one time they had what they called box boys at supermarkets. They sacked your groceries, took them to your car and put them in your trunk. Then, with a smile, they said, “Have a good day.” Nowadays, we all cut corners. Not only do I do all what the box boy did do, but I also scan my groceries too.

It’s actually not that bad. I am getting older and it is getting to be more of a chore, but I manage. It is all so we can save a penny here and nickle there. I save a little. The store saves a little. The one who really suffers is the box boy. They are no longer around. They do pay kids to round up the carts now and then but even they are getting rare. Moreover, they are using those electric things that allow them to do the work of three. They have to pay for the electric things but they only pay the one boy. That not only saves salaries but many other expenses too. Only someone who has run a business can really tell you about all those little expenses that add up to real money.

Corporations, large and small, have expenses too. I have often said, if a person decides to go into business, the first thing he needs to do is hire a lawyer and an accountant. The lawyer might keep you out of jail and that accountant might keep you square with the IRS. You notice I said might. The big corporations pay fortunes on lawyers and sometimes still pay fines. Sears was sued by a guy using a lawnmower as a hedge trimmer. Guess what, Sears lost the suit.

Nowadays, when you buy something, you can’t find the instructions for the cautions and warnings. They are there for the lawyers and the people who like to sue “Deep Pockets.” The legality and the tax laws add millions of dollars to the cost of living every year. It has become part of the economy. The drug manufacturers would have taken years to come up with the vaccines because of all the laws and red tape, but President Trump cut through it all. He kept it safe but he ran a bull dozier though all that was not necessary. Hence, we started giving shots 8 or nine months after he made the decision. Government too, is part of the economy. The bigger it is, the more it costs us all. My question is, if the red tape was not needed, why was it there to begin with, likely for a bunch of bureaucrats — people who are not elected and answer to no one.

Now, Biden wants to raise taxes. It is a common misconception of dems. They think that if they increase taxes ten percent, revenues will go up ten percent. It doesn’t happen that way. Oh, it will for a while. Then people start finding ways around paying the taxes. They hire lawyers to find loopholes and they find have accountants to take advantage of them.

The little guy, the one running the little neighborhood market gets hit with the same taxes and laws, but he has no way to deal with them. So, the little guy pays the taxes and the big guy still avoids them. Hence, the lawyers love increases in taxes. For them, it is job security.

But that is not the end of it. Indeed, it is hardly the beginning. Biden wants billions for the big three auto-makers to start building electric cars. At the same time, he wants to raise corporate taxes. So, the big auto builders will build the electric cars… in Mexico. That way, they get the benefits of the billions from Uncle Sam while avoiding the taxes on their profits.

By the way, did I mention there are many big companies ready to move out of country to avoid the taxes. They likely started packing their bags as soon as they heard the results of the election. If they pay more taxes, it will likely be to some other country, like China. Where did Biden learn his economics?

The sad part is that he will likely never know his tax increase failed to draw the revenues he expected. He likely does not have the cognizance to find out unless someone tells him. And I don’t think anyone will tell him.

Plausible?

Most of my books are pretty unbelievable. A couple of them are just almost plausible. There there are those that are simply, well, let’s just say even a young child would know it’s not much more than a modern day fairy tale. In one of the books there is a sub plot, one I thought ridiculous, though maybe a tad plausible. In it, there are people that turning teenage gangs lose on certain areas in the attempt to drive the property prices down.

Then, at the right time, the intention was to go in and buy the bargain property. Then, they would make sure the gangs would get rounded up and either jailed or sent out of town. Plausible? I guess, not likely.

Now, I am having second thoughts. Did some of the dems read my book and get ideas from it. I mean, there have been a whole lot of rioting going on and I am sure the dems are behind it. Anyone with a brain in his head can see that the property values are plummeting, some of which is prime real estate.

Now, once the rioting is over, I really would like to know who will be the ones who took advantage of the bargain real estate deals. Do you suppose some speculator will dive in and make some big investments? Do you suppose they will all have D s after their names. One or two just might be members of the House or or Senate. On the other hand, they might hide their possessions by keeping their names hidden in the corporate documentation.

Now, wonder. Is the plot so far-fetched after all. Makes me suspect I should have never written the book.

But it is a good book. It was called excellent by my agent. Thing is, I guess not so many agreed with him. My best selling book is “The Prepper,” and I don’t think it is nearly as good. It shows what I know.

Tax Breaks for the Rich

Over the years, the dems complain all the time about tax breaks for the rich. Now they are in favor of one. They want to reinstate the tax breaks for state income tax and real estate(known as SALT). Actually, there is already such a tax break. People can deduct certain state and local taxes on their federal taxes if they itemized. However, there is a limit. They can only deduct $10,000.

I find it odd that the dems are not happy with that. They are currently trying to get the cap raised, or better, removed. Guess what? Only the the rich would profit from the change. For instance, it would include folks with a big property tax bill, and/or those paying a lot of state income tax. That sounds like the rich to me.

So, it sounds to me as if they seek a tax break for the rich. If not, tell me how I am wrong. I mean who is going to pay state and local income taxes and property taxes of over 10 grand. Most of us poor folks don’t get close to that on our best years. On my best year, my gross income was only 4 times that. My state and local taxes barely reached a thousand dollars. Their proposed change certainly wouldn’t come close for me, even if I wasn’t retired.

Then again, I live in Mississippi, not New York or New Jersey.

Once again, the folks up there in the northeast want us to help pay for their lifestyle. Perhaps I should rephrase that. They want us to help pay for the lifestyle of the rich — northeast or not.

Isn’t it bad enough that they are using gas taxes intended to build and maintain highways to subsidize their subways and trains.

The Goals of the Dems

  1. They obliterated the border security.
  2. They Have driven us well toward national bankruptcy plans to repay their contributors and leftist supporters.
  3. They allowed countless diseased people from all over the earth while managing to keep people arriving legally at airports under quarantine.
  4. The governors of four major states have managed to cause the deaths of unknown hundreds, thousands by putting diseased people into nursing homes.
  5. They have kept our schools and businesses closed for almost a year. Moreover, they hope to elongate that as much as possible.
  6. They caused at least one major plant to move to Mexico and, naturally, their plans call for many more. In this case it benefited Ford. Those that worked at the plant, not so much. To be sure, there will be no apologies or explanations. At best, they tell them to find jobs making solar panels, or maybe windmills.
  7. With all the illegals entering the country they have managed to increase the unemployment. On the other hand, they are decreasing wages. Cheaper to pay a Latino to clean hotel rooms than American citizens…of any ethnicity.
  8. They have just about ruined New York. Everyone who can is headed south, where the governors know how to run things. Worse, they have destroyed the tourist trade. Everyone knows that if they go to the Big Apple, they won’t be able to find a place to sit down and have a pizza. Some people are stuck in New York as value of their property has bottomed out.

It would seem that the dems managed this all in less than two months. That is fast than I expected. Given three more years, who knows what kind of things they will attain.

It is a fortunate thing that President Trump called for Project Warp Speed (the nine month development of vaccines). Had he not, the dems would still be fumbling around through the red tape and not even Biden or Harris would have received a shot for at least two more years. By that time, many more would have died and the economy would be totally in the tank. That would make things just right for the dems. The Chinese Communists would be able to just march into this country and we would be able to do little or nothing about it. Moreover, they would likely make their approach from Mexico. They would have no need for a sea landing.

Floaters vs Controllers

In one group of books that I have written, I pit “floaters” against “controllers.” The floaters are the good guys who have some fantasy abilities. The controllers are the bad guys and are passionately and ruthlessly seeking power. They let nothing get in the way, including each other.

In truth, there are no floaters. They are from my imagination. I dreamed them up all by myself. I got the idea from all the detective shows where the bodies are discovered floating in some body of water.

On the other hand, in a sense the controllers do exist. If I were asked to point one out, I’d have to say that Cuomo is close to the perfect example of what I had in mind, about ten years ago when I started the series. Unfortunately, I could not use him as as my typecast. At that time, I hardly heard of the man, let alone all the horrible things he has done.

I must say that he does have quite a few competitors for prime example. The democrat party is full of them. Control is far more important to them than the good of The United States of America and its citizens. For that matter, their plans for the world at large are awfully bad too. I guess I should add a number of rinos to the list as well. It is easy to spot them. They are the ones without a spine. They are the ones with their fingers in the air to see which way the wind blows. They want all the glory without paying any of the price for sticking their neck out a little.

Problems in Royalty

We Americans have royalty too of course. We have little kingdoms called states and a larger kingdom called The United States of America. We don’t call them kingdoms but those who have the job of running them think of themselves as monarchs. They tell us when we can do things and when we can’t. King Biden is quite comfortable at telling us when and how we can celebrate the 4th of July.

However, it would seem there are problems with royalty these past few days.

1. King Cuomo is on the brink of being tossed out on his keester. As a matter of fact, he just might be turning those nice suits in for orange jumpsuits, or what ever they wear in New York prisons these days

2. Governor Newsom seems to be facing the real possibility of being tossed out on his ear. He will no longer be able to tell which businesses (for instants restaurants) can open and which ones must close. I suspect those running Disneyland, liberal as they may be, would be willing to buy him a one way ticket to just about anywhere, as long as they don’t have a theme park there.

3. Poor Biden is just trying to understand where he is and what is going on. Every time he looks over his shoulder, he sees Kamala eyeing his current home.

4. Then there is Kamala. She just keeps reexamining the 25th amendment. She knows that if Biden is removed from office, resigns or dies, she gets to occupy the Oval Office. She knows it will happen. She just isn’t certain which one or when. Another thing she knows. She will be the first woman president, her greatest qualification, of course. Naturally, it only enhances her impatience. Then again, we all know, instead of being president, she will be queen. Then she and her pen will be able to issue edicts throughout the land. We, her faithful servants will have to live by them, even if they are ridiculously horrible. (When Kamala ran for Vice President, did anyone ever bother asking her if she had any real experience running anything in the real world?)

The Fox and the Dinosaurs

One of the nice things about getting cable was getting Fox news.  It was the only place I knew that I could get the news from my perspective.  I read the other day that Fox is losing favor with conservatives.  Other than a few programs such as Hannity and a few other shows, the network is becoming more liberal by the week.

Of course there are other networks and I have started watching them more frequently.  That character that has that Sunday morning show would be quite at home on any of the regular networks.  He might even be welcomed there.  His two predecessors were far better, especially Tony Snow.

The way I figure it, Fox is making a big mistake.  If they abandon their viewers, the viewers will abandon Fox.  Also, they aren’t likely to pick up too many liberal viewers.  The conservative hosts will likely find another home, then Fox News will go the way of the dinosaurs.

Then again, that might not be so true.  There is evidence that the dinosaurs lived.  Within a decade or two, there might not be any evidence that there was ever a Fox News.

It is a shame but I guess it is so true, without good skipper, the ship will falter, regardless of the crew. As the leadership has changed, so has Fox News.
