New Word

Recently I learned a new word. Allow me a correction? It’s not a new word at all. It’s hundreds of years old. I just heard the word recently so it’s new to me. I looked it up to insure I have the meaning right. It seems the word is based on the two Greek words: ploutos meaning wealthy and kratos meaning power or ruling.

When I first heard the word, I was silly enough to wonder if it was somehow tied in with the name of the Disney dog, Pluto but it would appear that I was as far as the east is from the west. All right. Some of us aren’t so bright. At 73, I still like to refer back to my boyhood days when one of my favorite TV programs was Disneyland.

The word, plutocrat might easily be confused with other words with similar meanings such as astocracy (generally associated with nobility) or oligarchy as would seem to be the case in Russia.

The important thing about the subject, it would appear that, in one way or another the rich do affect our government at every level. In the past we had those who built the big monopolies, also referred to as robber barrons.

Of course these are all poor replacements for democracy, that is government by the people. It would appear no nation can be completely dissociated from rule by gold. Even in nations that brag of their wanders of communism, also called socialism.

I’m sure there are experts in our nation who can call out those who rule other countries by and for their weath. As for me I turn my interest to the USA.

However, I would like to point out that there are 4 basic groups of the wealthy in these parts. Some simply wish to do business. Of course, they do have interest in the government but only to permit fair and proper business practice.

There are those that seek power for the sake of gaining wealth and power. The dems are well peppered with this type. If you doubt, consider Pelosi, Biden, and the like who have no wealth other than what they gained in office. I believe these are most accurately described by the new word, plutocrat.

Lest you think I’m more interested in politics than truth, let me say the Republicans also have their share of plutocrats. They are also known as RINOS, Republicans in name only. The current minority leader in the Senate and a couple of the former speakers of the house. The plutocrat can easily be found. One not need search too deep. They have great wealth and they gained almost all from their government position.

Then, there are those who had their wealth before being elected to office and, if they gain wealth in office, it is incidental. Although the Kennedys meet this criteria, i hesitate to put them in this category being as their wealth was obtained by illegal methods. Indeed, they maintained their connection with those still practicing such things. Moreover, John and Ted Kennedy continued to take advantage of their power and wealth after being elected to office. Consider the cover-ups with Marilyn Monroe and Mary Jo Kopechne. (Oh, if only they could take the witness stand.)

Some, perhaps millions would say the same about Trump. It is not the point of this post to defend the former president. However, I will quickly say this. During his presidency, his wealth decreased, the vast majority of those with the least wealth gained the most. And, last but not least, no former ladyfriends ended up dead under suspicious conditions.

Then, there are the ones such as George Soros. There are a few of them. They have billions of dollars to throw around and they seem to want to use it for destruction of our nation and our way of life. For what purpose, I simply have no idea. Perhaps it’s idealism gone astray. My guess is he has the same idea that men have throughout history; world domination. He, and those like him, want to use their fortunes to rule the world. It has been a dream of the Pharoahs, the Babylon kings, and so forth.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want a power hungry plutocrat ruling the world. I don’t even want one ruling our country.

I know of no way of limiting the power of plutocrats, robber barons or whatever you want to call them. But perhaps it might start when the news media, dems and RINOS stop helping them.

As an aside, I have written a group of books I call The Floater Group. In them, the floaters are the protagonists and the controllers are the villains. The controllers bear a resemblance, of a sort, to plutocrats. It’s a shame I didn’t know the word plutocrat back when I began writing. Maybe instead of The Controllers Organization, I could have called it The Plutocrat Association.

Ridding the World of AIDS

Since the early seventies, millions of dollars have been spent on the effort to rid the world of AIDS. I find this very odd. They did nothing to isolate people who infected with AIDS. I have heard arguments, infinitum against said isolation. Yet, had the original people with aids had been isolated, it would have drastically reduced the spread of the virus. The cost would have been minimal compared to the billions spent.

It would have also been advantageous to those infected. It is the nature of disease to reduce immunity. Is it not part of the name. Hence the person with AIDS is more likely to die from secondary infections when exposed to them. An isolated person might have lived years longer than someone exposed to such things as TB, flu, hepatitis and such.

As an aside, ignoring (CDC, the same folks that gave us the China virus.) the spread of the disease has caused some spreading of those secondary infections. TB was virtually eradicated until AIDS. There just might be a reason to the spread of hepatitis among homosexuals.

The so-called experts said that the disease could not be transmitted through the blood. Then they found out that they were wrong only after thousands of victims were infected. This was totally the fault of the experts.

Even though it was general knowledge that the disease was primarily transmitted from homosexual to homosexual, no attempt was made to keep homosexuals from contributing to blood national blood supply, especially in San Francisco. Actually, just the opposite. Blood banks purposely sought out homosexuals. As a result, the disease spread from heterosexuals, overnight, into the general population.

It would seem the homosexuals wanted the disease to spread so that more money would be put into the research. Researchers frantically looked for something, anything. Even so, the disease spread, especially in Africa. It lended credence to the conspiracy theory that the CIA was trying to kill all black people.

A few logical steps would have drastically reduced the death from dreaded disease. It was as those in power wanted the disease to spread. To be sure, there have been billions of dollars that have gone into the drug research in hopes of finding a cure a cure or vaccine. Bottom line, they have slowed the spread, elongated how long people with the disease and they have managed to make a protected class out of homosexuals…all at the cost of billions of dollars and millions of lives.

With all this, the disease could be virtually eradicated in one decade with two simple changes in society. First and foremost, stop sharing needles. Better, stop abusing drugs. Second, stop sex out of marriage.

I know. it sounds like a crazy idea. It is radical. However, it cannot be denied. It will work. After two decades, most of those who are infected will decrease to a very small number. After three decades, the numbers would be reduced to a handful.

The problem is, of course, that would mean enforcing some archaic laws, some that most don’t like.

At the least, three things should have been done. First, identify those who have the disease. That way, we would know who to avoid. Second, crack down on illegal drug distribution, hard. Stop treating it as a victimless crime. The victims are dying every day. It would seem they are just being ignored.

Finally, anyone who knows they are HIV positive and intentionally infects others should be tossed in prison. In some cases, some remained free to roam after committing mass murder, though it was legal. Among the worst, rock hudson. (Note I don’t capitalize his name on purpose) He killed dozens of young boys knowing he was transmitting the disease. Turning my stomach, the news media treated him as a hero. Personally, I believe all his work should be destroyed. He is a worshiped mass killer, and he knew it. Some may not like the way I throw around my terms, but I won’t apologize. It just is I hate those who purposely cause mass death, politically correct or not. Murderers out not be idolized.

Representative Cheney Does Not Represent

I think this becomes casual to the most obvious observer when you consider the margin by which she is being voted out of office. Therefore, I submit that her seat on the current kangaroo hearing on January 6 is illegitimate.

She claims to represent her constitutes while all the time, her representation is of of her colleague dems. Moreover, she makes no effort to deny it.

If there were such thing as recalls of representatives, she would already be gone. Then again, maybe not. With the fear of an immediate loss of her job, she wouldn’t have done the things she’s done. Her idiocy would have been far more apparent to her.

Now, the only question that remains is what she will do come January. She might write books that no one will read. I don’t know, but she might go into practicing law. Certainly, she likely needs a lot of practice. She might join all those others who practice legal bribery; that is those who lobby for wealth. I’m sure there are many dems that will help her to get set up in that endeavor.

Wait a minute. Maybe I need to apologize somewhat. I’ve written over thirty books and hardly anyone has read them. On the other hand, millions of her book will be printed, purchased, distributed to warehouses and just sit there. It is one of the most common ways to bribe dishonest representatives. And it works quite successfully.

Making Money the Legal Way

Every day lawyers make money the legal way. In the process, they cost well meaning honest people a ton and a half of money. Considering the weight of paper money, that’s a lot of cash.

They don’t have to win their cases in court. They sue for a million, settle for 200 thousand and the lawyers walk away with 80 thousand of it. This, of course all occurs within months, maybe weeks.

The sad thing is that many of the defendants have done nothing wrong. I wonder suspect no one is keeping any statistics. I suspect that those statistics would prove that most of the time the loser is our justice system.

Then, there are those situations where the defedants are guilty. In the recent case concerning Camp Lejeune, the lawyers seem to really be cleaning up.

I can’t help but wonder how much of our tax money is going into the hands of lawyers rather than victims. The attorneys advertise day and night. There must be a lot at stake. Otherwise, why advertise so much.

It is legal, completely. However, as veteran myself, it leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth that the lawyers would buy their executive jets off veterans like me. It is likely why lawyers are known as a necessary evil.

As an aside, think about it. The Congressmen are largely lawyers making laws to benefit lawyers. Unlike the Constitution, laws aren’t written in plain English. In order to understand laws, we need lawyers. By the way, sometimes the lawyers don’t understand them.

It’s no wonder lawyers live so well, unless they are honest and ethical.

Cautiously Hopeful

Ever since I heard that The Court chose to review the laws on abortion, I’ve been cautiously hopeful. I do believe Roe v Wade was legislated by the Court based solely on imagination. Now, there is a real chance to limit it or maybe even overturn it.

Even now, after the recent news, I only remain hopeful. The problem is that the source is anonymous. I simply don’t believe anonymous news, especially if it good news. That way I’m seldom disappointed.

Still, I do have a couple of reasons to permit me to elevate my hopes. 1st, it is not totally good news. Family Planning and their crew of killers will sound the bugle and charge the Congress. They will twist arms and begin their bribes. There is far too much money at risk for them to just sit back and watch.

So, they will put their muscles and cash behind their willing accomplices in Congress. In a mater of a few weeks, they can pass a law making it forever legal to kill the helpless unborn.

Never mind what the people want. We are talking real money here and they want the new legislation before their dem friends get replaced by the Republicans during the midterms.

Then too, they claim the document seems plausible. Just maybe some dumb liberal clerk exposed it in hopes of turning it all south.

Then again, it just might be an invention by a libreral newspaper in hopes of putting the abortion movement in gear. Let’s face it. The abortion industry hasn’t had much going on lately.

Hopefully though, with a little help from the Lord, Planned Parenthood will have to find another way to make money.

So, as I say. I remain cautiously hopeful. A month or two, we’ll know, and so will Planned Parenthood.

The Best Place

I write this for one simple reason. Some people just can’t understand the sudden rise in crime. 1st let me suggest a couple of solutions for those who have stores that are subject to the recent crime wave. Armor your business so that it is difficult for the criminals to enter. That way, the criminals will do criminaling somewhere else. Hiring security is OK, but in the current environment, it will do little good and you just might get sued. Even when you when the suit, it will still cost you an arm and a leg. The lawyers have seen to that.

Then you build a solid anti-room for entering and one for exiting your business. This will ensure that only 1 or 2 at a time enter. While they are in the anti-room, require an ID and credit card. Notify them that they will be charged for anything they take or damage. Insist they sign an agreement before letting them into the area where you have your merchandise. Finally, before they leave, search them completely to make sure they are not taking what they have not paid for.

OR you can simply close the business and go to a city where such problems don’t exist.

This may not completely solve your problems but it just might force the cities to solve theirs.

NOW as for solving the problem.

It is simpler than you might imagine. Put the criminals in prison and keep them there as long as possible. Even if they are not rehabilitated, their criminal endeavors will be greatly reduced. Besides, it will put teeth to the saying that crime does not pay. It would seem, right now, it does.

As for why those in charge don’t already do this, that is simple too. They don’t want to. Those in charge of locking up the criminals are the Friends Of Criminals (FOC). Indeed, some are criminals. Why would they want to lock up their friends when it enhances their bank accounts to let their criminal friends do criminal things? As an aside, they are also friends of lawyers. Think of all the money they get out of it all.

So, instead of going after criminals, they go after those who go after criminals in every way they can. To be sure, they don’t like it when they are so embarrassed by honest people making them look bad. Besides, it is cutting into their profit. [Has anyone noticed? The Clinton slush fund(so-called charity) has drastically shrunk since they no longer have any influence to sell. On the other hand, I would expect that Joe will be a multi-billionaire when he leaves office, whether that is vertically or horizontally.]

Just remember, it is about power and money. Those who go into office without it, generally have plenty as they leave. Those that do leave without with power and money, we can truly label as honest, usually. To be sure, politics is a dog-eat-dog world. Sometimes, even the dishonest ones get eaten by the dishonest ones.

To go back to the main theme. The best way to have thriving businesses, keep the criminals in prison! It is the best place for them and keeping them there is the best for the honest folk. If a few lawyers go hungry, maybe that’s best too.

Speaking of criminals, why isn’t Fauci behind bars where he can’t invent any more viruses?

Tax Breaks for The Rich

While the FOCs are busy touting that they are not going to raise taxes for anyone making under $400,000, many, if not most are ignoring the fact that they are trying to remove the SALT cap that President Trump put on the deductions for state and local taxes.

Let’s take a second to review the history. Originally, the idea was to completely eliminate the exemptions on state and local taxes. The reason, quite logically, they benefit the wealthy (people who have money and a lot of it!). Few of us little folks have much to deduct when it comes to state and local taxes. Nonetheless, they changed their mind. They decided to keep it, but put a cap of $10,000 on it. That allows the little guy to continue deducting it, but the rich and famous lost a big part of the deduction.

Now stop and consider. Just who is paying more than ten grand on local taxes. Two types, to be sure. Those who are rich and those who live in states, cities and counties that have a high tax rate; mostly the rich… people who own land in states that have big taxes.

So, ever since the law to put a cap on SALT, the rich have been howling at the moon. They would do other things, but there was nothing else to do. So, after spending a while howling at the moon, the dems decided to give them a break. They wanted to do away with the cap altogether, but that did not set well with most of us who don’t own a bunch of expensive property in states like New York or California or New Jersey. So now, as the dems love to do, they decided to propose a compromise, which is not a compromise at all. The last I heard, the new cap was 72 grand.

Sounds good, of course if you are one of those paying 72 grand on local taxes. As for me, I never got close to grossing an income of 72 grand. For folks like me, it looks very much like a tax break for the very rich.

And here the FOCs advertise that they are the party for the commoner. (Anyone out there know anyone paying 72 grand in taxes, total?)

I Propose 2 Constitutional Simple Amendments

I am realistic. Few, if any will pay attention to me but I believe the vast majority of the common folk will agree that both amendments would greatly improve things throughout the nation.

First, every person, even those who hold public office would be subject to same laws as everyone else. This would also apply to congressmen and senators and their staff. This would definitely include required costs and health programs.

[This would hopefully encourage the doing away with Obama care as well as a few other laws that should be removed.]

Secondly, all new bills would be limited to 10 pages or less, which will be the equivalent 8 1/2 x 11 inches of 11 point print. The pages would have half inch margins. Also they should be published 7 days unaltered before they could be voted on. If it’s altered, the time would start all over. This part could be overridden only by unanimous consent.

[This would keep the FOCs from hiding horribly things in big complex bills. Also, it would keep anyone from slipping bad things into an important bill at the last second. If anyone should try such a thing, everyone would know it. ]

I am sure many would complain about the amendments, most of whom draw government paychecks. I am sure most of those who work inside that big building with the huge dome on it would voice their opinions very loudly.

Now if only I can figure out a way to get Biden and FOCs to actually obey the laws.

It’s Just Not the Same

Many people like like to point out the migration that took place on Ellis Island and try to equivocate it the avalanche of those coming across the Mexican border. Even as they speak, they know it’s not nearly the same, that is unless they have less of a brain than a nail on the wall.

For those unable to figure out the difference, let me explain it.

First, no one who was sick was permitted into the country. Indeed the hospital where they were kept still stands and, though I might be wrong, it can still be toured. It was where the diseased were kept until well. Those who were not curable went back to where they came from. Had AIDS been a disease back then, no one would have been permitted in with it. However, today it is a political disease and people with AIDS are permitted in regularly, which likely resulted in the loss of many lives. Because there is no desire to do any tracing, there is no way to tell how many. There is no way to make a reasonable guess.

Secondly, it was highly organized. All who tried to enter were interviewed and if they were considered undesirable. they were returned to their country. Certainly, those who had a desire to overthrow the country were not permitted in. Those who had no money or a desired trade were turned away. It was not intended that we should be the welfare state of the world. Finally, those who were criminals were returned to their own country. To be sure, we were not perfect in this regard. Apparently, many criminals did make it through. However, they also turned many away. On the Mexican border, none are turned away.

Third, there were limits, quotas for each country. The obvious attempt was to keep any one nation from overwhelming our civilization. Even though most did separate themselves somewhat into groups, they eventually did assimilate. Until recently, we spoke one language in the schools businesses and our government. Now, when school meetings are held, it is not uncommon for them to be held in three languages. Worse, children are in our schools who don’t know the how to speak English, let alone read and write. They are not the only ones affected. All the learning is hampered.

And, by the way, it makes it more expensive too. Many who of those slowing the learning should not be in the classroom. They are there illegally. If ten illegal children are in a class, that means two-thirds are paying to educate three-thirds. That is not right.

Fourth, many who come over the border are criminals. It causes the crime rates to go up and it increases the cost of enforcing the law. Many communities that were reasonably peaceful now have a meaningful population of criminals who are not Americans.

Fifth, back in the day, cartels did not control our borders. Nowadays, they do control the Mexican borders. The US would be completely right to send in troops and wipe out the cartels. The US is under their attack. However, no one, but not one will do that, though they fire across the river nightly.

If things were now as they were then, I would not mind the immigration. Somehow, I don’t think there are many who will pay me any attention. They are afraid of someone saying something in the social media, which would force them out into the Outer Limits.

So instead, they watch as our nation falls into oblivion.

OH YES! ONE MORE THING. BACK THEN WE DID NOT HAVE THE FLOOD OF DEADLY DRUGS OVER THE BORDERS.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Six Important Facts to Remember About Governments

  1. The more money you give to a government, the more power it will have.
  2. The more power you give a government the less freedom you will have.
  3. The less freedom you have the more money the government will demand.
  4. The more money the the government demands, the less money you will have.
  5. The more power the government has, the more they will demand.
  6. The more power the government has, the less power the people have.

Hence, the government is neither of the people nor by the people, but rather by tyrants who will tell us what to do and when to do it. The right to assemble or protest will cease. It is exactly the way of the dems. When they promise change, it is exactly what they have in mind. They desire to take your money, your power and your freedom.
