Count the Votes?

Those dummycrats don’t seem to be so good at math. The only way that Obama care will get overturned is for there to already be four votes to overturn it. If a Justice Barret were to add her vote to it, it would make no difference. With a four-four tie, the lower court’s decision would stand anyway.

The only way that Justice Barret’s vote would make a difference is if she were to break a tie with a negative vote.

Bottom line, she could only help the dummycrats. She’d not be able to help the republicans, regardless. (Well, I guess one of the other justices could abstain, but we know that ain’t happening.)

SO, WHAT’S THEIR BIG FUSS? I think it is noting more than theater anyway. Besides, I would have been thrilled if they had never passed Obama care. It cost me about thirty thousand dollars. It took a big bite out of my IRA.

By the way, it would appear that not too many reporters are that bright either. Why haven’t they pointed out the error in their logic.

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.

All Mixed Up

The more we become like others, the less we will be like us. And, at one time we were pretty good.

One of the things I noticed over the years is that people in the Soviet block would do just about anything to get into the United States. In fact, there were some who were desperate to do anything, period.

Many risked their lives to get from Cuba to the US. Indeed, many did die before reaching our shores and given the choice, they might do it again.

There must be a reason. There must be something here that they could not get in Russia.

Now of all things, there are people here who want to change the United States into something resembling the Soviet Union. Try figuring that one out.

As for me, it’s simple. Those folks wanting a socialist republic of the United States are simply mixed up. They haven’t got their heads on straight. I figure about four or five years living in China, as the Chinese do, just might help them understand what freedom is. Indeed, if they were to move to Cuba permanently, they just might start thinking of a way to make a seaworthy raft.

The US is a far cry from perfect. I will be one of the first to admit that. But the reason people want in here is that it is by far the best anyone has come up with.

For decades, the US was the example that the other nations tried to follow. Is it now smart for us to follow their example so that we would regress to what they are?

Sorry, but every time I hear the statement that we are the only country that does not have socialized health care, it makes me sick. What is it that they have that we don’t? Until Pelosi and those dummycrats started muddling with our health care system, we had the best health care in the world. Everyone came here to our doctors and our hospitals. Now, not so much.

Before the dummycrats and the unions we had the world’s most productive country in the world. Today, not so much. Everyone seems to want to go to China to have things made while our labor sets with their hands out wanting food stamps and other government assistants. And, of course, the dummycrats are in favor of strengthening the unions and their crooked leaders.

The more we become like others, the less we will be like us. And, at one time we were pretty good.

A Whole of Conspiring Going On

There was a movie, “The Conspiracy Theory.”  (It’s a good movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you should.)  In it, a man whose sanity was a little suspect, proved a massive conspiracy.  I have a copy of it, a DVD and I have watched it a number of times.

The first time I watched it, it seemed very unbelievable.  Now, I have second thoughts.

Moreover, it has come to my attention that we are living in a real historic time.  The conspiracy that we have seen unfold before us is far greater than the one in the movie.

The list of conspirators is a very long list, so I will list them in groups.  First, there is the intelligence group: CIA and the rest of that alphabet soup.  Then the congressmen.  We certainly can’t overlook The Justice Department.  Of course, that would include the FBI, which includes likely a dozen or so high level personnel.

Some would suggest that Obama was part of it, maybe Biden as well.  They may or may not have instigated it but they definitely knew and did nothing to stop it.  To be sure, Obama was part of the group that wanted the Paris Accord.  Also, he likely would be very happy with a one world government.

The largest group was the press, those who were constantly quoting anonymous sources.  It is amazing how they managed to suggest all sorts of lies in bold print on the first page of every paper and they put the retractions well buried inside, if at all.

At least, to some degree, federal judges have tried to further the efforts of the conspirators.  Many times, they have chosen to make decisions against President Trump.  In one of the most recent ones, The Supreme Court decided unanimously against the lower court and in favor of the President.  Even the liberal agreed the lower courts were wrong.  The problem is that the lower courts managed a delay tactic and they knew it.

 

Every conspiracy has a purpose.  In this case, it had multiple purposes, but they all sprang from one goal, global control.  In the process, they knew they would have to destroy or circumvent the constitution, especially the first four amendments.  Something of a absurdity, they used the amendments in their attempt to destroy them, such as the freedom of speech and the press.  No one dares to say anything politically incorrect or they are immediately dragged through the mire of the justice of the press.

It also relied on ceding our sovereignty.  This was to be accomplished through the Paris accord and the TPP.  The trick is that any treaty with any other country, if approved by congress, supersedes the constitution.  Oh…and by the way.  This was all coincidental to ceding our sovereignty to the U.N.

The whole process was going along swimmingly for them.  Then, President Trump came along and became president.  Their first big disaster was when he withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and they started realizing the prognosis.  President Trump was not a globalist and he did not intend to let the globalist have their way.  Then, of course, he withdrew from the Paris Accord.  He saw right through the fog of the ecologists and chose not to cede any part of our sovereignty to the treaty.

Even before he took the oath of office, the conspirators were busy trying to destroy him and his administration.  One by one they have been busy trying to pick off members of his cabinet, this while setting traps and roadblocks.  The colluders knew that if the new judges believed in The Constitution, their efforts might be set back a decade or two.  Already, they realize some of their fears.  While the liberal lower courts continue to rewrite the law, The Supreme Court has now made several decisions in his favor and, ultimately, in the favor of our country.

Now it would appear that the documentation of the above is being exposed.  In case after case, the dummycrats, in public, tell of the Russian collusion.  However, in secure sessions, not one of them admits to knowing any anything about Russian collusion.

So, they either lied to us, the public, as part of a conspiracy or they lied to Congress under oath.  Somehow, I am more prone to believe that they were lying to us.  Lying to the public might have consequences, but it is not against the law.

In summary, it would appear that the only collusion going on was by the dummycrats.  Only, it is legally called conspiracy.

The historic fact is that we barely avoided a coup d’état by the globalists.  If they had succeeded, there would soon be no more constitution.  Our national government would soon be replaced by some kind of one world bureaucracy, possibly the U.N.

It is no wonder they hate President Donald Trump.  He foiled their takeover, at least for the short term.  If the dummycrats should regain control (and power) it would not be long before they would be right back on track.  President Trump will have only made enough of a bump in the road to slow them a few years.

I hope and pray that doesn’t happen.  I don’t like movies where the bad guys win.

 

Oh!  One more little detail.  Guess who is footing the bill for this conspiracy.  That’s right.  We, the tax payers.  (This includes all that was spent in framing Gen. Flynn.  It was likely 4 or 5 million dollars, maybe more.)

Don’t expect any of these conspirators to pay the price for their dirty deeds.  Dummycrats never go to jail, only republicans.

Location, Location, Location

I am told that the term, “old adage,” is redundant.  The word adage means, old saying.  So when we say, old adage we are saying, “old, old saying.”

Okay.  I get it.  So, I hope you’ll excuse my redundancy when I say that the old adage is location, location location.  Personally, I agree.  I am neither a professional business man nor do I claim any training in real estate.

Regardless, I think the guy who originally said it is more correct than he realized.  You see, almost every day I do business with someone.  When I do, location has a lot to do with where I spend my dollars.

Therefore, let me break down the adage.  The word, location is used three times.  Indeed, it has three meanings.  First, there is ease of access.  Second, there is security.  The third meaning has to do with parking.

Please permit me a word or two… maybe even three on each usage of the word.

As I said, first is access.  Whenever I decide to go to a store, I generally go somewhere nearby.  If there is a place within a few miles, why should I go 50.  Okay.  I’m being a little extreme, but I’m sure you see my point.

While distance is certainly a consideration, there is more to access than distance.  Do I really want to fight traffic for 5 miles or is it better to go 8 miles in light traffic.  Personally, I would much prefer to drive an extra few miles rather than face the traffic of downtown Memphis.  (Oddly, I have driven in downtown Los Angeles and I found the traffic reasonable.  Then again, that was a few decades ago.)

The second consideration is security.  Do I want to do business in an area where I feel safe or do I want to face the possibility of being mugged on the way back to my car.  I don’t know about others, but I find most downtown areas a little unnerving.  Every time that I must go into Memphis, I generally keep my head on a swivel and I remain a good distance from all those around me: black, white or purple.  In a matter of security, I am color-blind.

The third consideration, parking, can be the primary one.  If I can’t park within easy walking distance of the business, all else is moot.  In my own opinion, this is the primary reason that most downtown areas fail.  I get into downtown Memphis and then I have to pay through the nose for somewhere to park.  On the other hand, there might not be a place to park even if I’m willing to pay through the nose.

I mean, as I say, I’m not an expert; however, I do know why I don’t go downtown unless I have a good reason.

…and yet, when they built the basketball arena, when they built the new baseball park, they built them in downtown Memphis.  (in my opinion, dumb)  If there is a baseball game and a basketball game on the same day, you just might be better off staying home.

I’m not dumb.  I know why they built the facilities downtown.  It helps to bring people to the downtown area.  Then again, I used to go to see baseball games all the time.  Since they moved the park downtown I saw one game.  I have never seen the inside of the basketball arena.  I have no desire to spend an hour or more fighting traffic to get there and then spend another half hour looking for someplace to park.  Then of course, while walking to and from, I am in constant fear of some drug addict  deciding that he needs my money more than me.

I have gone to several Dodger games when I lived in Orange County.  It was quite a drive, maybe thirty miles.  However, it was almost all freeway.  Within the park, understandably, congestion was immense.  If my memory serves me correctly, the stadium seat around 50-thousand.  On the way out, once I left the parking lot, I was on the freeway, traveling at freeway speeds.  Oh. By the way; there was always somewhere to park.  Attendants provided organized assistance.  It worked very smooth.

Sometimes, people understand the location adage.  Sometimes people don’t.  It is what happens when government makes the decisions.  Dodger Stadium was built with private money.  The location was decided by businessmen, not the city council.  It was built without public money, so there was very little waste.

So, when they decided to change our healthcare, who designed it, the government… Obama and Pelosi; two people who know nothing about medicine.  Now, years later, it is still messed up.

Hope and Change

Obama promised hope and change.  As with so many of his promises, it was an empty promise.

Well, actually, that’s not totally true.  After the changes he and his cohorts made, the only hope I have are the changes that President Trump is providing.  Because of Obama care, my 401k has about been drained dry.

Tonight, I seek info on a nursing home in earnest for the first time for my wife.  If she doesn’t have Alzheimer’s disease, it still amounts to the same thing.  In essence, Obama has taken away the last few years I could have spent with my wife as she used to be.  It would have been nice doing some traveling, but while paying $1000 on insurance premiums, there wasn’t much left for traveling.

Now, at 72, I might have to go back to work to pay for the nursing home.  I don’t know.  It is a trip that I have been reluctant to consider and I don’t know much about it.

Regardless, that $35000 dollars I spent on Obama care (no) insurance premiums just might come in handy right about now.

As a side note, because of the downturn in the economy the dummycrats caused, I took a 10% cut in pay one year and then a few years later, another 5%.  During the last few years I worked, I had to stop contributing to my 401k.  That was the kind of change the dummycrats provided.  Now the economy is booming, no thanks to the dummycrats who continually stand in the way at every opportunity.  The problem is… will anyone out there hire a 72 year-old with a bad ticker.

Well.  I guess I’ll find out.  One more thing I found out.  As Pelosi said, now that Obama Care has passed, I definitely know what’s in it.  There’s no need to guess now.  I also have Sen. McCain to blame for prolonging the agony with his vote that permitted it to continue.

I sure would like 5 minutes face to face with Obama.  I don’t think he will have to worry about health insurance.  Our tax dollars provide him and his family with the very best.  It is the nature of socialism.

 

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.

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?
