Abortion on Demand

Boy, have I gotten an education. I used to think that elections are about this. I used to think elections are about that. Now I know better. You listen to those dummycrats and they will school you too.

It is all about abortion. Not only that, they want abortion all the way up to the point of delivery and a tad beyond. And, oh, yes. They want you and I to pay for it, no matter how detestable we find it. In fact, they especially like to have Christians pay for it.

Sorry. I don’t understand it. No matter how you coat it, it’s wrong. It is murder. The fact that they are taking an innocent life is just an inconvenient fact that they don’t want to face. It is the number one consideration for them, even for some people who call themselves Christian.

If I try to speak to someone on the subject they either yell or put their fingers in their ears. They don’t want to hear about it. As it says in the first chapter of John, when they see the Light they prefer the dark. When they hear the truth, they prefer the lie. It is more convenient.

Control 2

In “Control 1” I wrote about the number 1 way that tyrants can control a people, denying education even to the point of keeping people illiterate.

Today, I would want to go into the second way of controlling the masses, propaganda. In Germany, Russia and China, the communists used propaganda heavily.

If I am going to write about it, maybe I should make sure you know what it is. Technically, propaganda is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.

I might emphasize at this point that propaganda is not necessarily lies. Indeed, the best propaganda contains elements of truth. In fact it might not even contain any lies at all. It makes it more believable. The way it works is by leaving out key information.

If we say that John Doe is a horrible man because he cuts people open, it sounds like a reasonable statement. What we are not told is that the man is a highly skilled heart surgeon.

We believe the deceit that he is a horrible man because of the little bit of truth we are told. If we do not give him an opportunity to defend himself, we might actually be in favor of putting him on death row, especially if he admitted to cutting people open.

For decades Pravda was the paper of record in the USSR. Nothing was printed in it without the approval of the government. People who wrote for the paper were specialists in propaganda. They worded their stories so as to make the USSR sound like a grand and glorious nation. Ironically, it did contain some useful information if you could figure out how to parse through the propaganda and find the little bits of truth embedded in it.

However, as I said in an earlier post, the main difference between Pravda and The New York Times is that Pravda was controlled by the government. The New York Times is controlled by the democrats. In many cases the democrats are communists, so it amounts to about the same thing.

Most papers these days are a mere shadow of past journalism. Many journalists risked life and limb to print the truth. Nowadays the so-called journalists risk life and limb to keep the truth out of the papers. What little truth they do print is to convince us of the propaganda.

Let’s take that Atlantic rag that said the president said horrible things about the marines who fought in Bellow Woods. They took a well known fact, that he canceled the memorial trip and then they weaved a few lies into it. They cite autonomous sources (for all we know they are all fictitious. we have no way of knowing.) and then they expect us to believe it.

To some degree it works. Some people want to believe it. It doesn’t matter. The story is referenced by dozens of papers radio and TV personalities. Suddenly it is true, whether or not it is.

The fact is that it really isn’t even a good example of propaganda. It isn’t believable. Any rank amateur could tear apart the story in seconds. Moreover, President Trump was able to produce dozens of sources, real people with real names that called it out for what it was, a blatant lie. Regardless, it did do some damage. It will have to be dealt with by the president’s campaign.

In my own personal opinion, the newspaper did more damage to themselves than to the president. Anyone with a brain in their head will forever doubt anything printed by the paper. Unless it is artificially propped up, it will likely fade away.

Nonetheless, it does demonstrate propaganda and its uses. It also demonstrates why people citing anonymous sources should never be believed. Once I see or hear the word, anonymous, I stop reading or listening. In my mind it would be dumb to continue.

Then again, the democrats are dumb. They continue to read the articles and they quote them as great truths. It is why I call them dummycrats. It is why they are being successfully controlled by the controllers.

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.

2 Questions I’ve considered

Why is that the CDC refused to isolate people who contracted a disease that was 100% fatal, namely AIDS, and they insist on isolating people with a disease that is likely less that 1% fatal, namely Coronavirus?

OK. I get it.  AIDS is normally not passed through the air.  However, originally they didn’t know that.  So it is that millions died because they got it wrong.  Considering these scientists have a bunch of college degrees, they sure do some dumb things.  Right now, I’m not sure I would trust them to, well, anything.  Certainly, I would not want them running anything such as the nations health system.

It just goes to show what happens when a bunch of people are given a task to run something when they are not elected and are not responsible to anyone, also know as bureaucrats.  Let’s face it, no matter how badly they mess things up, not one will be fired, or even demoted.  Indeed, many will tell us how well they handed the epidemic.

This brings me to the second question, why do we put such important things in the hands of bureaucrats?  Maybe the best thing for us to do for our health is to shut down the CDC.  Right now it is starting to look like a bunch of people trying to protect their jobs, not the health and lives of Americans.

…and by the way, we all know the reason AIDS patients weren’t isolated.  The first time someone tried it, the homosexuals yelled like someone hit their thumbs with a hammer.  (by the way, it was suggested a time or two, but not for long.)

A side note: The isolation would benefit the AIDS patient as well. AIDS weakens the immune system.  People who have it are more susceptible to diseases other people bring to them.

And so it was that millions died so that the nation would serve the god of political correctness.

Capitalism vs Socialism

A few days ago, I went into a fast-food restaurant,  (not McDonald’s)  The person taking my order was rude and my order was not complete.  I didn’t notice it right away and considering that I was not given a receipt, I figured my chances of getting the remainder of my order improbable.  There were other problems too, but I won’t go into that.

Needless-to-say, I will not be going back to that place.  For those working in or running restaurants, or any business for that matter, it might be something you might want to remember.  I didn’t complain.  I just won’t go back.

It is the nature of capitalism.  For those who do not provide good service, they lose business, possibly, to the point of going out of business.  Those who provide a good product and good service will likely get many return customers.  It’s just common sense.

On the other hand, under socialism, people have no recourse.  The business is run by the state and if you don’t like it, it’s just too bad.  Actually, who am I kidding.  The likelihood of having a decent restaurant in the first place is quite remote.  Restaurant work is hard work.  Without reward, I know of no one who would want to work in one.  Anyone working in one would likely be there by force.  Moreover, no one would have any reason to open such a business.

The fact is, the desire for reward is what makes things work.  You take the reward away, you destroy the desire to work.  More important, you destroy the desire to risk opening a business in the first place.  Indeed, you stifle the desire to invent and develop ideas and concepts.

It is why the US develops more than half the medicines.  I mentioned earlier in one of my other posts how wonderful the devices are that generate oxygen.  At one time, diabetes was a death sentence.  After time, they developed methods of measuring blood sugar.  In the last thirty or so years, they have made great advances in this.  Nowadays, all I have to do is poke myself and put the blood on a strip.  Five seconds later, I know my sugar level.

If it weren’t for the rewards that researchers received, I would likely have to use the Ph strips that were used 30 or 40 years ago.  I don’t know.  I might not have that.  This very moment, they have many advances they are researching and testing.  Likely, within, fifty years, treatment might be as simple as implanting a pump that will sense the amount of sugar in the bloodstream and automatically supply the correct amount of insulin.

Take the rewards away from the people and the companies doing the research, and you can forget it.  We will do well to maintain what we have.

To put it blunt, socialism destroys motive.  Motive is what has brought us out of the stone age.  If you doubt me, consider what wonderful advances have been made in socialistic societies.

Some might like to suggest the Soviet Union or China.  Forget it.  All of their advances are the result of copying our advances.  They are really good at copying things.  Original ideas are something all socialists countries lack.

The really horrible thing about socialism, though, is what it does to societies.  Some, the leaders, have good food, excellent health benefits, and wonderful housing.  The rest, not so much.  It is the modern surf system, but worse.  At least in the old surf system, there was no effort to control thoughts.

Impeachment?

It is clear that the dummycrats want to impeach President Trump.

They have but one problem.  After 3 years of relentless searching, they have yet to find one thing that will stick.  To be sure, he has used abusive language.  He has been a little crude in speaking of others.  Of course, they absolutely hate him.  Yet these are not crimes or misdemeanors.

The truth of the matter is that the real reason they want to impeach him is that he is a multi-billionaire, which makes him immune to the bribes of the lobbyists.  He does what he believes is for the national good and no bribe will dissuade him.

Knowing threats don’t work on him, they threaten those around him.  They claim they have many things with which to impeach him.  Yet they fail to produce even the most minor thing.  They know if they do vote to impeach him, they will be as the emperor with his new clothes.  If they vote for to impeach, they know they will stand naked before the people, which they know would be very embarrassing.  They know that it will only increase his win in the 2020 election.

So they use another approach.  Instead of levying any real charges, they nit-pick at him in hopes of damaging his name prior to 2020.  They it is their only hope for winning the election.

Then again, they are dummycrats.  If they had an once of common sense, they know that won’t work.  Considering their field of challengers, they should realize that that is not going to happen.  I guess they are not only dumb but desperate as well; very desperate.

By the way, there is one more thing for them to consider.  All those methods they used to try to steal the last election are starting to come back to haunt them.  Those footsteps they hear behind them are prosecutors who are going to charge them with real crimes.  I understand they are already hiring their lawyers in hopes of beating the charges.  My guess is their money would be better spent on an airplane ticket.

How to Become Rich

Some might not consider me an expert on the subject.  Yet, I am now 71.  I have seen a lot and I have seen a number of people who became rich, some somewhat quickly.  So, I write this for those unaware of these methods.  However, I suspect most will be disappointed.  Most people are already well aware of them.  To save some time, I will limit my methods to legal, though not necessarily honest ones.

  1. Inherit your fortune.  While this method has the highest chances of succeeding, most people don’t have a rich aunt or uncle.  This pretty much eliminates our chances.  Still, if you can make good friends with a multi-millionaire, you might still have success with this method.  On the other hand, some have succeeded in marrying the money.  Naturally, for this to work in a reasonable time, you would want to marry someone who is old.
  2. I do not recommend this method.  It is very rarely successful.  Oddly, in spite of the odds, people continue to try this method.  Carried to its end, it usually works for the house more often than the gambler.  Some like the idea of buying chances on lotteries.  Obviously, some people do win fortunes with this method.  The truth be known, you would be better off taking part in the old illegal numbers games.  As I said, though, I am going to steer free of the illegal methods.
  3. Come up with a really good idea. There is a long list of people who have made fortunes off of very simple things.  Many times, I have seen advertisements for things and I could kick myself for not thinking of the idea first.  Some are so obvious.  In some cases, the inventions don’t even need to be useful.  I think back over my past and I find some of the most successful things were the most useless.  (Would you believe pet rocks?  Yep!  It made someone into a millionaire.)
  4. Becoming a lawyer. This works in a number of ways.  Forget practicing law,  The tort laws have probably been the one thing that made millionaires out of more people than any other one thing.  One judgment can result in untold millions for just a few lawyers.  I hear the lawyers advertising that they want to help the victims.  The truth, however, is that they want to use it to make their fortunes.  Even if you can’t get involved in a good tort lawsuit, you can still get elected to public office.  Just look at the senators and representatives.  They go into office as paupers and come out with the money overflowing their pockets.  I can only guess how that happens but I would suspect that at least some of it is illegal.  So maybe I shouldn’t include it in my list.
  5. Oddly, it does work.  I heard on the news about a preacher that died and had a bank account of over a million dollars.  When they checked on him, they realized he was just very frugal.  To succeed at this, it does mean doing without some of the niceties in life, but it does work.  Moreover, when you have the money to pay cash for things, it saves a fortune on interest paid.  The truth be known, if you live like a pauper, you might become a millionaire.  If you live like a millionaire, you will likely become a pauper.
  6. Become injured. This one is borderline legal.  Yet, if you are truly injured by accident and you can show fault, you just might be able to become rich as the result of a judgment.  This might have a major disadvantage, though.  It might mean giving up an arm or leg, or possibly your health.  Another disadvantage of this is that your lawyer will likely benefit almost as much as you.  Most lawyers require a 40% contingency fee.
  7. Become a professional athlete. Most people would have better luck in a casino.
  8. Finally, you just might go out and earn it. I know most people don’t like this method.  It is the one that you will find most rewarding.  More important, it is impossible to ethically earn a fortune without being a help to others.  It is the primary advantage of the capitalist system.

Aiding and Abetting

The dummycrats are guilty of aiding and abetting of the enemy, the Russians, Chinese, Iran and North Korea.  Every time they encourage the enemy, they aid them.  Every time they try to undercut the efforts of President Trump, they abet the enemy.  They are saying, “All you have to do is wait until the dummycrats get in office, things will turn to the way they were.”

Every time the dummycrats and fake news impede the building of the wall, Every time they refuse to alter the law to decrease illegal aliens, every time they aid those who are here illegally, they are aiding and abetting the cartel; they are encouraging gang members who illegally cross the borders and remain here.

Every time that someone dies from an overdose, they have contributed to their death.  Every time a woman is raped by an illegal alien, they are guilty of helping them.  And, by the way, they have helped some who have not yet arrived.  Some of the rapists are guilty before they reach the border.

Do the dummycrats or reporters feel any remorse.  No!  Most likely, the dummycrats are not capable of such a thing.  I mean, feeling guilt?  It seems to be a foreign concept to them.  As far as they are concerned, they would have to admit they are doing something wrong.  The truth is that anything that furthers their goals is a good thing, no matter who gets hurt.

All the above hardly surprises me.  After all, it is all in their guidebook, the  Communist Manifesto.  The part that really bothers me is that there are Republicans in cahoots with them too.  Nearly half of those who call themselves republicans are just as guilty and it doesn’t seem to bother them either.  Indeed, they seem to be proud of it.

Go figure?

Just remember, it’s not really about communism or socialism.  It is about power.  They want one world government and they want to be in control of it.  Nothing else matters.  World dominance was the dream of virtually every dictator since the beginning of history.

They love to belittle the memory of George Washington.  It would do them much good to remember that when George was offered the throne, he quickly turned it down.  Very few in his position would have.  It was likely the first step into the best and greatest government this world has ever seen.  Invariably, those who successfully lead a revolution become the leader of the new government.  Washington only accepted the office presidency after the forming of the government.  Even then, he insisted on stepping down after two terms.  It’s likely something Roosevelt should have learned from.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Decrease the Costs of Healthcare

If you really want to cut the cost of healthcare, one way you can go about it is to keep the lawyers out of it.  Doctors have to pay a great deal for malpractice insurance.  Let me restate that.  We who visit doctors pay a great deal for malpractice insurance.  It is a cost of business for doctors and we pay every bit of that cost.

Well, that is not totally true.  Most of us don’t pay the doctor.  We pay insurance companies and the insurance companies pay the doctor.  Regardless of how many hands it goes through, it is our dime that pays for that doctor to keep his practice.  Even if the cost is paid by an employer, it is part of our pay package.  In a way, when the payment is made through other means, it is worse.  By isolating us from the knowledge of the cost, we remain ignorant of just how much is paid for that visit to the doctor because we have sniffles.

It wouldn’t be so bad, but in most malpractice lawsuits, the doctor is not even at fault.  However, the insurance company usually settles to avoid paying legal fees as well as the off chance that the jury improperly awards the case to the plaintiff.  Let us face it.  Paying ten-thousand for sure appears better than possibly paying ten-million.  So the lawyer gets forty percent of ten-thousand, four thousand for simply threatening to sue.

When it happens in small numbers, it isn’t any big thing.  However, there are lawyers that make their fortunes making such lawsuits, even though they know that they would lose the suit should it go to trial.  So you and I pay no-good-bums to sue good doctors without good cause.

If the lawsuits were not permitted, thousands of lawyers would have to find another line of work and the price of healthcare would plummet.

Unfortunately, that is not all of it.  Everyone knows about defensive medicine.  There are many doctors that order tests that serve no purpose other than to keep out of court.

Then there are the medicines.  A pharmacology company spends money and years to come up with a new drug that serves a very important purpose.  Then, after all the testing and all, they finally release the drug so that they can start realizing a profit.  Then, one week later, some lawyer takes the company to court in hopes of getting a big settlement out of it.

It happens all the time.  One day I hear of a new drug that really helps and within a week, the advertisement comes on TV, “If you took (whatever the drug is) and suffered (whatever the problem is) then contact (whoever the lawyer is) and we will make you a millionaire.  (And, by the way, we will become a billionaire.  And, by the way, we will drive the cost of meds up roughly thirty to forty percent.)

Lest you get the wrong idea, I am not advocating completely taking the lawyers out of medicine.  It would be a horrible idea.  However, we really need to take a long hard look at our tort system.  Indeed, it would be a good idea to look at it in general, not just the world of medicine.  Everything we buy includes legal fees.  Worse, there are some products that never make it to the market because of lawyers.

My suggestion is that the lawyers should be held to a higher standard.  I don’t know how it would be, but lawyers who do such things should have their licenses pulled and they should be fined.  If we could figure out a way to do it, the cost of medicine, as well as other things, would immediately drop.  Not only that; I wouldn’t have to listen to those ridiculous commercials.  TV and radio would have to find a replacement for their programming.

Unfortunately, I don’t hold out much hope for anything to be done.  The lawyers make the laws.  They benefit from them.  I doubt that they will do anything that will decrease their fortunes.
