If Only

If only the dems could manage foreign policy as well as they can rig elections.

(Wish I could say I thought of it myself. I heard someone quote President Trump.)

Let me add my personal remark. Maybe it would be nice if they could manage the border, improve our schools, control crime, or run an economy. Trump’s remarks make me wonder how they managed to rig the election without anyone knowing it.

Wait a minute. Everyone does know it. The dems just refuse to admit it and the media jumps on anyone who brings it up with both feet. It is the worst kept secret in history.

Counterfeit

In Matthew 17, Jesus told Peter to catch a fish and take a four drachma coin from its mouth. I was young the first time I heard the story. It seemed odd to me. Jesus did not need the fish. He could have made dozens of the coins with his spoken word. I suppose he could have also used many other methods as well. But, he told Peter to get the coin from the fishes mouth.

In the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” we could hear the whimsical song, “If I Were a Rich Man.” I totally enjoyed the song long before I saw the movie or play. To be sure I identified with it. Actually, I still do. I’m not greedy. I would be very happy with a million or two. I would not turn down five or six. It would not solve all my problems but it would solve most of them.

What does the one thing have to do with the other? Although God can make money, He rarely if ever does. On that day, when Jesus was asked about the taxes, if Jesus produced the money out of thin air, that would have been an act of counterfeiting. The money He would have made would have been produced outside the authority of the government and Jesus recognizes authority, even human authority.

I don’t know how that works completely, but had he made that coin, that would have been a sin, and Jesus does not sin. It does go beyond that. Let’s say God took pity on me, and maybe a few thousand others. He spoke the word and instantly, we would all have five million dollar bank accounts. That would not only be counterfeit in mass, but it could be very damaging to our economy.

That money represents work, skill and knowledge. When it is just given to me, it short circuits the system. It can and would likely negatively effect our economy. Suddenly, there would be millions more money in circulation and hence, each dollar would be worth less. Therefore, God would be improperly taking the representation of the work of thousands and giving it to me. I would benefit from the work of others wrongfully, as would the others.

So now, the government, in all its wisdom has decided it is okay to redistribute wealth. I get to benefit from the sweat of your brow and you get to benefit from the sweat of mine. Never mind the product of our work. Never mind my laziness. All those who have worked so hard to build those apartments. Never mind them. Let them go into debt while those who refuse to work live in the fruits of the work of their landlords.

God does not redistribute wealth because he knows it is not right. Why should the government know better.

Communism is a relatively new economic system. Capitalism is as old as trading. I will give you so many of these if you give me so many of that. I will help you build your home if you will provide food and clothing for me. If you provide me a boat, I will provide fish for you.

The coinage only made it all simpler. At first it had no government backing. However, over time, only the governments coined the money. At least that is the way it was supposed to work. Then they started taxing to pay for mutual defense and roads and such. Now it has gotten into a tangled mess, but it works the same.

The problem is that that there are a number of things that throw things out of kilter. There is, of course robbery. As mentioned a fore, counterfeiting. Then there is gambling and lotteries. In the blink of an eye, gambling can transfer the equivalent of large amounts of work from one to another. Such things throw the capitalists system out of kilter.

The man that loses all his wages cannot pay his rent. The gambling sites draw crowds of unsavory types. And then of course, those that own the “house” live on the fruits of the labor of others without adding one thing to society. Indeed, they become the “rich men” as sung of in the above song.

The work they do is a counterfeit work. But they are not alone. Those in government know how to counterfeit their contributions to society too. They tax some while they give to others… all the time skimming some off for themselves. It is the most important reason to keep government small. It is one of the most important reasons to limit the power of government. It is the biggest reason FOCs get involved in government.

It is one of the biggest reasons that governments fail.

The Ol’ Red, White and Blue

In general, the three colors in the flag have the following meaning.

The white: Purity and innocence

The red: Hardiness and valor

The blue: Vigilance, perseverance and justice

Originally one stripe was added whenever a state was added. Now, for practical reasons, they decided to make it thirteen stripes, one for each of the original colonies. Within the blue field, there is one star for each state. I had the privilege to have lived under a flag with 48 stars, then 49, then 50.

The concept was that Hawaii would add another republican state and Alaska another democrat state, which only goes to show that things don’t always turn out the way you expect. Sometimes I wish I could have bought a few of the flags with 48 stars. They just might be collectors items.

Over the years, more and more, the red has represented the blood that was given by those who gave their lives to protect both the banner and the nation for which it stands.

Now I ask you, what is it about that flag that makes it unworthy of our respect.

Maybe the nation it represents isn’t perfect. Nonetheless, it symbolizes a nation that is constantly striving to be worthy of the standards it represents. And even if you cannot bring yourself to respect the banner, you should at least respect those who died for it… and your right to complain. The vast number of nations since the beginning of recorded history never had that that right, not even the English who answered to a king until a short time before the American Revelation.

So, go ahead. Tell me what nation has provided its modern citizenry much in exchange for so little. Those who were before us paid for our freedom. With that freedom comes responsibilities. If we abuse our freedom, those behind us will not enjoy it.

So. Next time you see the flag, you just might remember what it cost.

What Happened to Speedy Trials

It was on January 6 that people ran into The Capitol Building. I know. Every day the FOCs remind me. They keep wanting a highly democrat controled committee to study what happen. I can save them the money. I can tell them what happen but what’s the use. They aren’t about to listen to me. Besides, they have their mind made up already. They will discard any piece of evidence, regardless how small, that counters their foregone conclusions.

However, I want to address a different matter. It is a waste of time to say anything about the committee. As I said, the outcome is already set in rock. The thing I want to address are a number of questions about those arrested. I don’t have any idea why others aren’t asking them.

It is now June, almost July. Where are the speedy trials? What are the charges? Do these horrible people have lawyers? After all, even murderers and kidnappers get lawyers. Have any trial dates been set yet and are they going to be in this decade? For that matter, has anyone figured out what horrible things they have done? I mean, trespassers are generally released on bail inside a day or two. Where are these people? Does anyone know or have they just disappeared.

And there is one more question. Why aren’t the real criminals, the ones burning down stores and court buildings charged with crimes. Why aren’t they required to stand before a judge and plead guilty or innocent.

Then, of course, why weren’t they given a speedy fair trial…then thrown in prison with the rest of the criminals. That way our streets will be safer. Then again, because their friends, the dems are in power and the only people charges of crimes have Rs after their names. The criminals are free to roam the streets where they can beat old men and smack old women in the face. Why shouldn’t they do such things when they know they can get away with it?

Fear

Many of us learn fear from our youth. For some people the fear is not natural. Some people refuse to leave their homes. Others, like me, fear heights. Fortunately, my fear of heights is more-or-less under control. Still, I refuse to go up in those rides where all they do is lift you to great heights. Some, let you rapidly descend and slow you just before you reach the ground.

I guess my fear of heights does have some basis. To be sure, the height won’t cause any harm. In general most people survive the fall. It’s that sudden stop I fear.

Some have great fear of the dark while most of us know that it isn’t the dark that can cause us harm. Now on the other hand, all those treacherous gremlin that hide in the dark….

Most of us, to some degree, fear the IRS. If you don’t believe me, just tell someone that the IRS is going to audit his last five years of returns. I suppose, to some degree, this is a good fear. It keeps most of us honest. On the other hand, the not so honest have more fear than most of us. Sometimes it nags at such people. It is the ol’ “What if” question that comes to mind, at least once or twice a day.

Often times we try to destroy what we fear. Sometimes, this is without reason. Sometimes we have a reason.

Take for instance the dems, the general news media, and especially those who have lied to the public. In general, they fear the truth and as such they try to destroy it.

This speaks well of President Trump. Those that have lied, cheated and stolen, or those who have aided and abetted those who have, have a good reason to fear the former president. He represents the truth. And, if there is one thing these folks have to fear is the truth, or those who speak the truth. It is no wonder there are so many trying to destroy President Trump and those who support him.

If they don’t fear the truth, then why won’t they let him speak? Why did they take him down from all the social sites?

It looks to me as if they are running scared. Because they fear him, they try to destroy him.

Moreover, it is a pattern. Anywhere you see someone trying to destroy the truth, it is a sign that they have something to hide. Remember Ms. Clinton and her E-mails. She feared the truth getting out more than she feared the penalty of the law. Then again, she does have a D after her name. She did know she had a good chance of getting away with it. So she successfully broke the law and hid the truth. As such, we, the public will never know what she hid.

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.

Insanely Obsessive

I’m not a psychiatrist, but something recently occurred to me. Maybe I could get a professional opinion.

The dems seem to have an obsession possibly to the point of insanity. They tried to remove Trump from office before he became president. They tried to remove him during the four years he was in office. Now they are trying to remove him from office after he already left office. No doubt about it, they seem to be possessed and driven by a demon.

Okay, that is not scientific. While I do believe that demons exists, demon possession is likely not in the book of psychiatry. Nonetheless, it has been used a time or two to represent a person’s state of mind. It appears that the dems will not rest until they have convicted the former president of something, if only j-walking. Only thing is, they can’t even seem to convict him of that.

So it would seem, driven by some kind of insanity, they are trying once again. It is contra-productive. By trying to prove him guilty, they are only proving that no one can find anything of which he is guilty. Even if the Senate were to find him guilty. The jury, the one that really counts, the public realizes his innocence. On the other hand, if he is found not guilty, they will have even failed again.

Then what? Do they pursue him in the conventional courts? I do not put it passed the dems. They just might try that. It will of course only prove my point, that they are insanely obsessive.

Incidentally, as an aside, the chief justice will not be overseeing the trial in the Senate. It would seem his decision is based on fear. It would seem to verify one of my earlier posts. I suggested that fear is the reason the justices don’t want to take up any of voter-fraud cases. Could it be that someone has suggested to them that they should conform… or else? I wonder what the or else is.

Construction/Demolition

Over the last 4 years, under President Trump we went through a great deal of construction. We brought back jobs, especially manufacturing and the world became much more stable. Not only were the minorities part of this, they were the primary beneficiaries.

In the next 4 years we will go through demolition. The dems will try to destroy everything President Trump built. They can’t help it. It is part of their genetic makeup. The problem is that they have decided to destroy anything else “Trump” as well.

Patrick Henry said, “I might not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it, to my death.”

On the other hand Pelosi and her minions have a different attitude. They will defend your rights to say what you want, as long as it agrees with them. If you don’t agree with them, they will do anything they can to shut you down. As far as they are concerned you have no freedom. They would like it very much if you would move out of their country. And of course, if something goes bad wrong, they will find a republican to blame it on.

The democrats believe in freedom for them and them only. For the rest, we must shut our mouths and submit to their rule… to their control… to their tyranny. Do you think you African-Americans will benefit? Forget it. The only time the dems are interested in you is when voting day approaches. Then, after you vote, they will forget you again. As I said, the only ones they want to benefit are themselves. They want the money. They want the control. The totally want the power. Along the way, they would not mind a few accolades, even if they don’t deserve them.

The 4 Phases of Socialism

It all starts with division. As with any battle, it is easier to win when the opposition is divided. However, it works even better when the opposition fights amongst itself.

So, when the socialists want to take over, their first step is to divide those their oposition. In many cases it is field labor against the land owners, the poor against the rich and of course the Blacks against the whites. (Actually, any two races work just as well.)

In the case of the US, they had their choice of how to divide and they decided to use all them. They didn’t have to raise the complaints; they were already there.

On the other hand, they did have one thing they needed to overcome, a middle class. It is difficult to cause anger in a middle class so they started doing what they could to destroy it. Since WWII, the middle class is smaller than ever. This is primarily the result of democrat and their leadership.

At any rate, they now have just about everyone against someone, even when they have no reason.

The second phase is chaos. People now think they have a reason(s) to riot. Even if they don’t someone will gladly provide them with a bundle of money to show up at the so called demonstrations.

Before too long, if the riots are not controlled, it will result in chaos.

When there is enough chaos, then it is time for the third phase. A new authoritative leadership will bring the riots under control with a firm hand. It brings safety and stability, but at the cost of freedom. The socialists, what I call the controllers, now have control. This the forth phase.

The forth phase is the purge. (no relationship to the movie) During the purge, the controllers go about removing all opposition, even to the point of killing. In Germany, it rusulted in 10 million people dying. In the Soviet Union, it resulted in the loss of 20 million lives. I am not going to try to guess at how many died at the hands of Mao. I don’t know if anyone has any idea.

In each case, even with Hitler, it was done in the name of socialism. (NAZI is a form of socialism, thought the socialist will vehemently deny it.) In each case, there was no real socialism, though that is what they called it. It was out and out rule by one central authority. And, of course, there were very few who were part of that authority. They lived like royalty. The rest, not so much. The idea of widespread wealth simply did not exist.

If you doubt any of what I have written, look it up. Please read it for yourself. It is in the history books. The thing is, you might want to read it before they take it out of our written history. Doing that, of course, is part of the purge. If the pattern holds true, that will not be long from now. Even now they are in the midst of destroying statues and monuments.

It is likely the one reason they hate President Trump so much. He stands in their way. He is keeping them from gaining their control. If he manages to win this next election, it just might put the controllers decades back on the schedule. That just might be a good reason to vote for him. It is also a good reason to vote for republican senators and representatives. It might also be a good time to remove some of the dummy democrat governors and state attorney generals. If we don’t, the pattern will hold true and this republic and The Constitution will fade into obscurity.

False Implications

A false implication is another way to say lie or falsehood. It is when a person uses an implication to say that which they know is not exactly true. The democrats have turned it into an art form.

One implication was that they would have never have blocked a vote by a republican president in his last year of office. I’m not gullible enough to swallow that one. Are you? The truth is that, if the situation were reversed they would have done exactly the same thing.

The other implication is that “We the democrats would never appoint and confirm a justice this close to an election.” You believe that one and I have a bridge I’d like to sell you. They believe in doing or saying anything to protect there right to “Choice.”

The truth is that the democrats would have done the same in both situations. There would be one difference. The media would be right there cheering them on. Instead, the media cry out,”Unfair! Unfair!”

I’ll tell you what is unfair, making my wife and me pay those ridiculous insurance prices that Obama Care forced on us. I’ll tell you what unfair is, recalling all our troupes from Iraq exposing over a million people to slaughter.

And by the way, it is also unfair to spy on an incoming president without cause. Truth about that, that’s not just unfair, that is illegal. Whole bunch of democrats ought to go to jail over that, but they never will. You see some people are above the law. All they need is the news media, a bunch of money and a whole lot of conspirators.
