The Truth About Government

If I may, I would like to make a statement based on something I heard Dr. J. Vernon McGee made one time.

The best government in the hands of bad people is horrid.  Even, it will tend to get worse.

The worst government in the hands of good, God-fearing people will tend to be good.  Moreover, it will tend to get better.

Keeping this in mind, is it better to put the control of the government in the hands of people who want to destroy our government as we know it.  After all, even Obama promised hope and change.  I didn’t see much hope but I saw a lot of change… all in the wrong direction.  Do we really want to repeat that mistake and put the country of communists or are we going to learn from the last mistake?

Pravda v Our Mainstream News Media

Pravda printed propaganda because the Soviet Union made them, more or less at the point of a gun.

The American mainstream media prints propaganda because they want to.

Other than that, I can’t see a whole lot of difference. They both bolster the benefits of socialism and rail the horrors of capitalism.  They both say how wonderful it is for one central government to run everything and the horrors of individual thought.

Remember these things:

1. Deceit does not always require a lie.  Sometimes an element of truth is more deceiving than the lie.

2. For those who like their welfare: Not everyone who gives you things is your friend.  Often, gifts are given with an element of control.  Those who give you bread today, seek to tell your children how to live, and think.  (Our forefathers gave us freedom.  Do you want to give your children bondage and tyranny.)

3. We ought to do that which is right, regardless of the penalty.  We ought not do that which is wrong, regardless of the reward.

To be sure, President Trump is trying to do that which saves lives and protects our freedom.  The dummycrats are doing all they can to stand in his way.  It is because of the open border that people seek to enter illegally, often costing their lives and freedom.  They are in favor of laws that act like magnets, such as welfare for all and college for illegal aliens that encourage their long and dangerous trek.  They make it almost impossible to send them back, which often endangers the lives of those who legally live here.  And, by the way, it also endangers the lives of those who live here illegally.

It is the dummycrats that offer free things, all the while sizing control of the government.  Once they control our government, the welfare will stop and the tyranny will begin.  It is the pattern.  It is the way it was in Russia.  It is the way it was in China.  It was what happened in Cuba and Venezuela.  Now people who live in these countries risk their lives to live here.  Once we become as they are, where do we go to seek freedom?  To what land do we go to to think as we want without the thought police looking over our shoulder.

You say it won’t happen here as it did there.  Have you taken a good look at our college campuses?  The liberals already rule those institutions, there ones that are supposed to encourage free thought.  The government is already telling us who we can do business with.  The thought police are right around the corner.  Soon they will tell us what we can or can’t preach in church.  For that matter, they just might try to do away with the churches altogether.

One world government is what the socialists seek.  It is what Karl Marx taught.  It was his ultimate goal.  It was to do away with war.  But when the government that rules the world is bad, what recourse do freedom lovers have?

 

Why I Call Them Dummycrats

Just heard Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) make a dumb statement.  He basically said that we should be mandated to pay health insurance because we are mandated to pay car insurance.

The man likely has a college degree and conceivably a law degree.  Most representatives do have at least a four year degree.  However, I would like to see if he ever held a real job or ran a real company where he had to meet a parole.  On the other hand, I barely have a high school diploma and I spotted a hole in his logic that a person could drive one of those big mining trucks through.

  1. His statement is false on its face.  Not all people are required to carry car insurance.  Most people in New York, New York don’t have car insurance.  They never did and never will.  It is because they don’t drive cars.  His idea of a health insurance mandate would include every breathing human within the country, with the likely exception of congressmen.  (Then again, I’m not sure they are all human, anyway.)
  2. Those of us who do drive are only required to carry liability insurance.  We are not required to carry theft, collision or comprehensive.  The only reasons the state requires us to carry liability is to protect the other guy, not the one carrying the insurance.  Moreover, it is not because they know we will have an accident.  Some people, believe it or not, never have them.
  3. There is an exception in most states to the requirement.  Those who can may post a bond to cover the liability.
  4. We have several companies to chose from, some from out of state.  Being as I am from Mississippi, I have one selection, which is as if I have none.  Effectively, this has left my wife uninsured.
  5. Finally, the minimum coverage does not protect the driver who liable.  If I have a fifty thousand policy, the damaged party may still sue for and receive a judgment for a million or more.  The health insurance that Mr. Ryan wants us to pay has no limit and requires us to pay for coverage we absolutely don’t need—that’s both dumb and stupid.

 

Mr. Ryan, your statement almost sounds like a joke, but I’m not laughing.  Because of Obama Care, my wife is effectively without insurance, though I pay a premium of a thousand dollars a month.

The one thing that disturbs me the most is that you – and Obama – were voted into office, likely by a bunch of dummycrats.  It is something of an argument against democracy.

No More Obama Care

The judge pronounced Obama Care unconstitutional.  While it still lingers for a while, it appears that one of the worst laws passed by our government is going away.

As far as I am concerned, it lasted far too long as it is.  As I have written before, I am paying $1000 a month premium.  My wife spent a few days in the hospital.  I just got the bill.  The insurance company, Ambetter, refused to pay a dime of the $8000 hospital bill.  Of course, this does not include diagnostics and doctor bills.  I haven’t received those bills yet, but I suspect I won’t get much help there either.

To call the bill the Affordable Care Act would be a joke.  However, after paying the premiums and hospital bills from my Social Security income, I’m not laughing.  I believe the act will go down in history as the worst law ever passed by our government and it should have never been passed.  The only reason it was, was because a bribe paid to the senator from Louisiana.  The only reason it wasn’t voted out of existence was because of a rino Senator who was more interested in getting back at President Trump than he was in doing what was right.

By the way, I hear the number one thing people consider for voting is healthcare.  Considering the bomb that was dropped on us, anyone thinking of voting for a dummycrat just might want to rethink that.

If Obama got what he has coming to him, he would spend the rest of his life in a prison cell… him and the cohorts that forced that stupid law down our throats.

Idealism Verses Experience

There are those who get into government with real business or military experience.  Then there are those who bring nothing but their idealism into government and try to use the government to run the nations businesses.  Do I really need to explain which party is which?

By the way, I might mention, most of these idealists never worked a day in their life outsied of politics or volunteer projects.  They don’t really have the slightest idea what makes things work.

Progress or Regress

It was late evening.  My wife drove me to the emergency room.  While she parked the car, I went up to the admissions desk.  I showed my hand to the clerk and asked, do you need to explain why I’m here.  Even though she smiled, she also displayed the proper empathy.

My wife had warned me a few times about walking at night.  I had even been stopped by the police and warned, that is, after they asked what I was doing.  There are thieves out there.  Some have knives and some even have guns.  However, you must understand, it is cooler at night and I need my exercise.

So, generally I walked about two miles a night.  The nice thing about walking is that it exercises some of the largest muscles in the body.  More that that, walking helps to pump blood through the body.  This helps to distribute the nutrition and flush out the poisons.

On this particular night, it was neither thief nor even a gunman that assaulted me.  My problem was a pine-cone.  After I stepped on it, I was on the pavement before I knew it.

At this point, I started to wonder if a knife might have been less painful.

I mean; I really hurt, pretty much all over.  It was as if someone picked me up and slammed me to the ground.  In a way, it was worse.  I never saw it coming.

I started taking account of everything when I realized that one of my fingers was pointing the wrong way.  As I held my hand in front of me, it was pointing to the right, not up as the others.  Immediately, I realized that was not so good.

In spite of my best efforts, I couldn’t get up.  It reminded me of the commercial where the person calls out, “Help.  I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”  I lay there in street a short distance from the curb.  I wondered if I should have carried a flare with me.  I mean, it was dark.  I did have some fear that someone might run over me before they saw me.

Fortunately, I did have my cell phone with me and, like ET, I phoned home.  It did not take long for my wife to reach me.  I was right in front of my house when that lethal pinecone attacked me.

Well, most of the rest, you already know.  She helped me to my feet and drove me to the hospital.  There, they determined that I had one shattered one knuckle and dislocated another on my right ring finger.

I knew about dislocations.  I had seen enough TV to know that it is painful to fix them.  Well, I just had it confirmed.  When that PA took my finger and straightened it, I jumped straight up off that gurney.  I don’t know how I did that, but I was literally two inches above it.  Thinking I was going to hit her, she jumped back about four feet and she was ready to retreat even more.

Unbelievably, I thanked her.  Now, when is the last time you ever thanked someone for causing incredible pain.  Besides that, I assured her that I knew what was coming and I would have never hurt her.  I did mention that I preferred that it might have been better had she not snuck up on me like that.

I got another one of those smiles, you know, one that was accompanied with empathy.

Believe it or not, I was referred to a hand specialist.  I did not even know that there was such a thing.  He put wires in my finger.  They kept my finger from bending sideways while allowing it to bend properly.  Then he told me to bend it a lot… to keep it from freezing in one position.

Then after a few weeks, he decided to cause me more pain.  The wires had to come out and he decided the best way was to use a big pair of wire cutters.  He cut the wire four times.  (I suppose I should mention that the wire was stainless steel, very strong, very difficult to cut.)

I know it does seem strange, but sometimes, those that want to help us cause us pain, sometimes a lot.  Conversely, some folks who help us mean us harm.

In one of my books, “Stormy,” I try to illustrate this.  I consider the book my best.  I don’t guess my readers agree with me.  I have sold but one.  Also, it is the only one that was commercially edited.  It cost me $8500.  I don’t think I’ll make it back at this rate.

Getting back to my main point, the Bible tells us that work is a blessing from God.  Though the Bible doesn’t say as much, I believe it is a proper conclusion that when a nation deprives a person of work, he is robbed of a blessing, though many will emphatically deny it.

Many times I have been approached by beggars.  I am not talking about people who have disabilities.  I am speaking of healthy able-bodied people who use deceit to get a person to give them money.  I might mention that the deceit is thinly veiled.  They beg for money to buy food.  I offer to buy them a meal, and they go to their next mark.

The fact is that if I give them the money, I teach them that they can survive by begging.  If we all deny them, they just might go out and get a job.  Therefore, by giving him money, I do him a disservice.  You deprive him of one of God’s richest blessings.

All of us come to hard times from time to time.  When I first got out of the Marines, I did accept some help for a few weeks.  Those were hard times.  Looking back on it, I don’t know how I made it, but I did.  I won’t go through the explanations, but I took no money from the government, just a small loan from my wife’s grandmother.

Moreover, let me say this, when you take welfare from the government government, then you become a slave to those who run the government.

 

Speaking specifically about the democrats, it is their hope to arrange giveaway programs.  That way, they can enslave the population, or at least a large part of it.  To some degree, they have succeeded already.  Those on the dole are afraid that they will lose their freebees.  Therefore, they already control your vote.  If ever they achieve complete control of the government, then they control of everyone.  We will all lose our freedom.

By the way, those on the dole now will work.  The government will make sure of it.  It is the way of socialists.  They use giveaways to gain control.  Then, once they have control, they remove the giveaways.

It is the pattern.  It is the one they have used since the early 1900’s.  It is how they took over Russia, China, Cuba and many others.  They promise Utopia.  Over and over, they have succeeded in their deceit.  Yet, wherever they rule, it is far from Utopia.  For those who like to hug trees, the socialistic countries have the worst records for the environment.  Their only interest is themselves.  I assure you, those in the leadership of Venezuela don’t go hungry.  They live in their nice big air conditioned houses with their servants while those who were promised Utopia go through garbage cans trying to find a morsel that might last the day.  If they don’t succeed, they go to sleep hungry.  If they do succeed, who knows what kind of disease they might pick up?

Even more, they have been robbed of their blessing, work.  Now they beg, not by choice, but of necessity.

I would encourage one and all to vote republican.  More than that, avoid relying on the government for your survival.  If you do rely on Uncle Sam, you will be a slave and the elite will live like royalty.  The socialists call themselves progressives.  Yet, if they succeed at taking control, it will be a regression back to the dark ages.

New York Getting Bluer

More and more, New York is getting more socialist

More and more, conservatives are leaving the state.

More and more, New York is getting bluer,

Which in turn makes it more socialist.

I figure, in a decade or two there won’t be a conservative in the whole state.  Then we get to see what happens when socialists run things.

Then again, we are getting something of a preview already.  A good look at California will give us a good hint.  Then of course, a good look at almost every major city will give us a clue.  Every time those characters in Memphis think about raising taxes, it drives my property value up a dollar or three.  When people start looking for property just outside Memphis, it makes my little house worth just a little more, and the property they left behind a little less.

Those libs running Chicago have demonstrated how quickly they can take a bad situation and make it worse.

I simply do not understand how the African-Americans can look at what all the dems have not accomplished for them and yet they stand steadfast behind them at every election.

Let me state this as clearly as I can.  Socialists are not for the poor.  Their methods insure the poor remain poor.  America is the only nation where a poor man can become a multi-billionaire, if he puts his mind to it.  The reason is because of the capitalist system and the freedom to do what you want.  The socialists do not tax the rich, only those who are trying to get rich.

Consider, if I have ten million dollars, I can lock it up and take a few dollars out every now and then.  I’d not pay a dollar on income taxes.  On the other hand, if I make a million dollars a year and it is taxed at 60%, It will likely take me thirty years to save the ten million.  Hence, it is the man who works the hardest who is penalized by paying the higher taxes.  On the other hand, if I don’t work at all and rely on the welfare state, I neither work nor pay taxes.

Therefore, the only people penalized are the ones who work.  It is why every time New York raises their taxes, their revenues go down.  It is also why the rich leave town.  …and, it stands to reason, if the only people paying taxes are poor or indigent, the tax revenues will be greatly be reduced eventually to practically nothing.

I don’t know why I should have to explain this.  It has been demonstrated time and again.  Yet, when those socialists start talking free this and free that, it seems all past memories are instantly destroyed.  Everyone likes those handouts.

Just remember.  If you want to see what a future socialist US will look like, look to New York and California.  You don’t need a crystal ball to see our future.
