The Best Place

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

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

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

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

NOW as for solving the problem.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Getting Along

As the man said, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Every day I get out on the road. During the day, especially after four in the afternoon, they get crowded. Now that we are approaching Christmas, they are going to get especially crowded around the stores, especially Walmart. Some of the intersections can get bottle-necked. There is one intersection near the Chick-fil-a where it can come that it can come to a complete stand still. It is the reason that we park about half a block away whenever we go there… and this though the dinning room is not yet open.

Nonetheless, most of us make it through just fine, though our nerves are a bit frazzled and we burn maybe a quart of gas getting the quarter mile or so. Then too, there is the time element. The reason we usually get along on the road is because of laws, rules that govern who can go and when. We are also encouraged to let the other drivers know our intentions. I find most drivers are courteous provided I use my signals and don’t make any sudden moves. As my brother told me before I did any driving, “Surprises might be fine for birthdays, but not so much for driving.”

Occasionally, though all the rules of the road are followed by everyone, people do have accidents. However, ‘accidents’ are generally the results of someone doing something wrong. Sometimes, it is unintentional; sometime it is right on purpose. Some take advantage of some imagined privilege and before you know it, bumpers are touching and then the tempers really flare. Sometimes, because someone thinks he is special and it ends in the loss of life. In such cases, the police become involved and no one likes the outcome.

When we were making a long road trip, my brother mentioned something that amazed me. On the two lane highway, people were passing each other at the relative speed of 130 mph, assuming both drivers are at the speed limit. A head on collision at that speed is almost always fatal. Yet, we do it everyday, somewhat casually, assuming the driver going the other way is going to stay on his side of the line. By the way, we do this just about 3 or 4 feet apart as we pass. As I think it over, it scares me. However, I still do it, giving it little thought.

The thing is, if we don’t “Just get along,” the results can be horrible, even fatal. So, in general, we follow the rules. In general, we remain relatively courteous. When it calls for it, we take our turn.

On the other hand there are those who are special. When one lane is closed, they wait until the last minute to make the lane change. It isn’t that they just crowd in front of me, but they are also crowding in front of the fifty patient drivers behind me who do it right. Sometimes they go into the emergency lanes. The police don’t like that because the lanes are reserved for real emergencies, not privileged drivers. It makes it difficult for ambulances, fire vehicles and tow trucks to make it through.

Sometimes these privileged drivers enter intersections, knowing that there is not going to be any room for them on the opposite side. When people do that, they cause gridlock. That is sort of what happens near the Chick-fil-a. Lights turn green; lights turn red. Then, because there are cars in the intersection, no one goes anywhere.

I can go on and on, but I am sure you know what I mean. The purpose for me explaining that which you know is to point out something that just might not be so obvious. We have other laws too, rules that we are supposed to follow. When we don’t it can result in problems. Yet there are people who disobey them. In some cases, they are caught by police and they are made to pay for the infractions. Other times, they get away with it. Here lately, it would seem they get away with it, as others watch. Sometimes even while others cheer them on. Sometimes, right in front of the eyes of law enforcement officers.

In situations such as this, it is as if there are no laws. It makes us a lawless society. In the end, it is to the detriment of all. For no one wants to live where there is no law.

Yet we have a political party that would have such a country. They want us to live in a place of theft and pillaging. They like it when the murderer murders and the innocent citizen goes to prison for defending his life and property. The figuratively put cuffs on the border patrol and ICE while they wave the law breaking illegal aliens through.

To be sure, where there is no enforcement, there is no law. Where there is no law, there is no justice. Where there is no justice, there is no just getting along. It was the reason for the law in the first place. But then the lawless society is exactly what they want and it is exactly what they are forcing onto the rest of us, like it or not.

Due to recent revelations, it would appear our nations number one law enforcement organization threw all the laws away. Instead of enforcing them they were breaking them. Dozens suffered the results directly. We all suffered indirectly. Yet, I doubt any of those really behind it will ever see the inside of a prison cell. Certainly neither of the Clintons will. There power and influence are simply too great. This is ironic seeing as Mrs. Clinton said that no one is above the law. Besides, there is no way the media will permit either of the Clintons to suffer such indignity.

If it becomes that way on the roadways, we might all be better walking.

I Propose 2 Constitutional Simple Amendments

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s Just Not the Same

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BUILD THE WALL!!

About Lt. Col. Scheller

Some might wonder why I have held off in having a say about Scheller. To tell you the truth, I have had some difficulty with it. What he said, of course is the truth. However, when you take an oath in the military, you give up some of your rights. One of these is the right to criticize your superior officers. When you join the service, you live under another set of laws, called the Uniform Code of Military Justice (U.C.M.J.)

When he spoke the truth, he was guilty of disobeying this code, which I am sure he knew. As such, it does speak to Scheller’s courage. He very likely knew he was going to get in trouble, though he was probably unaware as to the extent. To be sure, he not only disobeyed the law but he stuck his finger in a hornets nest. Dems do not like their faults exposed, especially those who wear starts on their collars.

Though I was in the Marines, I would hardly call myself an expert on the U. C. M. J. Still, the first word in the title is “Uniform.” That is to say, it should apply just as much to the Lt. Col. as to the four star general. It would seem that what the general did was far worse, but he will never suffer for what he did. You see, you get to break the law when you have a D after your name. Moreover, you get to break the law when you do things that aid and abet the FOCs.

That means the U. C. M. J. is not uniform. It is biased. If the general got off without so much as a slap of the hand, then nothing should have happened to the Lt. Col. If the Lt. Col. faces a general court martial then so should the general.

Then again, as we all know, with Biden in the White House, why should we be surprised?

For those who would like to browse some of the books I have written, please look on my About page at the bottom. There are also instructions for ordering them. Thank you!

Big Brother & Waste

I was listening to an interview of Robbie Starbuck who is running for 5th district in Tenn and he brought out some points that bear repeating. I won’t repeat his words but I will rather barrow his thoughts

First he came up with a suggestion. The FOCs want to be able to look into our bank transactions. No problem… if they let us look into theirs. In return for passing the law, the law should require them to post all their bank transactions over $600 on a web site the following day.

Incidentally, most do not realize, that $600 dollars as a percentage of income will decrease with inflation for both the FOCs and for us. Today, what we pay $500 dollars for, will soon be $600. Hence, as the years go by, the snooping factor will increase. I am sure they were well aware of that when they came up with the idea.

The other thought he had reminded me of was a store that provided unsold produce to charities at no charge. It went on for a while until one day someone got sick. He sued the store and won the suit. Therefore, the produce that had been going to the charities is now going into landfills. ( I call that wasteful)

It is the nature of the FOCs. Whatever they touch produces waste. The bigger the national budget, the greater the waste. Whereas it is true that the FOCs did not directly cause the waste as above, they are really good friends with the trial lawyers. I am sure some trial lawyer made a bundle on the above.

There is no telling how much food is wasted every year because the Friends of the Criminals. The stores don’t dare donate food being as the lawyers wait as ravenous wolves waiting to pounce. The example that Mr. Starbuck pointed involved a bakery where they tossed the unsold doughnuts daily. None of them went to homeless shelters.

Speaking of which, I wonder just how much the federal government wastes. $600 would not even be noticed. Actually, the FOCs likely skim $600,000 in one month. Some of it goes here. Some of it goes there. Nobody seems to notice. No one seems to care.

By the way, has anyone noticed that Biden’s son is still working for China. It’s true. Seems to me to be a good reason for impeachment. It’s not going to happen though. Biden has a D after his name.

On the other hand, you will not find many capitalists wasting things, for obvious reasons. It is another good reason to promote capitalism.

As a side note, I vote that all people who hold public office should have to work in a restaurant for 6 months. There they will get an education far more effective than any college. They will learn such things as work ethics, profit margins and plain hard work.

For those who would like something to read, check my “about” page. I have a list there of 35 books I’ve written… all fiction.

Magnitude

I have noted that every now and then, a little two or three man sail boat overturns. Mostly, they will upright the boat, get back in, have a laugh, and sail on. Every now and then, tragedy strikes and one or more of the crew will die. It does happen.

On the other hand, May 15 1915 the RMS Lusitania was torpedoed and sunk, killing 1198 passengers and crew.

To be sure, the loss of life in both situations is bad. However, there simply is no equivalency and it would be a farce to try to make it one.

On Jan 6, people died during or after the occupancy of the Capital Building. Some have tried to equivocate that to the destruction of four jumbo airliners, two huge buildings, the damage done to the Pentagon and the loss of almost 3000 lives.

I guess the same folks would try to equivocate the tragedy of the sailboats to the Lusitania. It is sort of like trying to push a ten foot string straight up. It is simply impossible. It is a matter of magnitude. A two or three inch string can be held straight up. Ten foot, not likely. To be sure, no one intended to upset the sailboat. So far, no one has been charged with much more than trespassing in the Capital.

Moreover, the press seems to be doing all they can to make the ridiculous equivalency. That says more about the press than the Capital Building incident.

Quote of the Week

The Quote of the week goes to D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee who admits to be mad over the recent shooting in his city. He said “I guarantee that when we lock up whoever did this, they will not be strangers to us.”

This seems to be his way of telling those who did it that they will be locked up and telling us that they were very likely repeat offenders. The man knows how to use his words. He also knows where the problems are.

Also, in a way he is saying what I have said many times, “The best way to stop crime is to keep the criminals in prison.” That way, the police will not have to deal with them nearly as much.

Hangers On

Occasionally, I write about the books I’ve written. I think this is okay especially considering that one relates to today’s subject, hangers on. The book is “The Prepper.” It is about a young man who spends years preparing for the possible doomsday. However, he gets hit right between his eyes by the present. Throughout the story he finds himself wishing he had prepared for this or that, for instance, he wished he had taken a class on criminology. He would have found the course very handy along for a few other things he did NOT prepare for.

At any rate, (slight spoiler alert) he comes upon a large sum of money and he finds that it brings on a number of folks, people who claimed to be friends, relatives and folks really good at managing large sums of money. Again, it is what I call hangers on. They are people without scruples who enjoy living off other peoples money.

These folks fall into three categories: friends and relatives, professionals such as money managers lawyers and pro moochers. These moochers know about “investments” and get rich ideas. Some have really nice inventions that will save the world…if they can just get some financial backing. Then, of course, there are those who know about these very real community needs.

Understand, I do understand that there are community needs. It just is that most of these hangers on make fortunes representing the needy and pocketing most of the donations.

Then too, the prepper had a problem with gold-diggers, women looking for rich husbands.

I find it absolutely amazing how people can instantly find reasons they need to hang on to people who acquire grate wealth, especially those who gain the wealth suddenly and in their youth.

So what is the purpose of the post? Let’s have a quick look at Britney Spears, a very wealthy woman who had squired many hangers on, of all things, including her father. If it weren’t for her millions, not one of them would have any interest in her.

Let’s get this straight. I am not one of her fans and I am sure she could have lived a far better life. However, I find it despicable the way that the hangers on cling to her. All of the lawyers, both hers and her fathers ought to be disbarred. None of them have her interest in mind and I understand that should be their primary concern, not their own treasure chest. Moreover, why in the world does it take three. Why should she pay for her father’s three lawyers.

Most of all, my biggest question is just what in the world was the court system thinking of to allow this mess.

Don’t get me wrong. I think our court system is the best in the world. However, I have taken note that it does get warped a little when money is involved. Just who was the judge who allowed this. I wonder just how his bank account affected by it.

Okay. I have no proof. Yet it happened right in front of the eyes of the American people. This is a disgrace to the justice system and it is a disgrace to all those who are hangers on. Perhaps, to a lesser degree, it is also a disgrace to the American people who permitted it.

As a side note: “The Prepper” is my best selling book. Of all I know who have read most of my books, they all say it is their favorite. You might want to preview the book. You might want to find out why it is my best selling.

Also, this just might explain why people consider lawyers a necessary evil. Isn’t it nice to know that most of those we vote into office are lawyers.

Police, Fund or De fund Them?

De fund the police. They are all that is bad about our country. It is one the mantras throughout the land for months now. Then something happened. The FOCs found out it was poling badly for them. Some poles suggested that as many as 80% of the nation wasn’t buying their absurdity.

The FOCs really don’t mind it if you don’t believe them. Normally they just repeat the lie until it becomes a fact. Consider global warning, or climate change or whatever they call it today. Al Gore made a very impressive presentation on how the world would flood in ten years. D. C. and Florida were going to be under water.

People, real scientist with heads on their shoulders said it just wasn’t so. Every time that happened, they were beaten (figuratively) about the head and shoulders until they stepped in line. It worked. The world flooding became fact…until it wasn’t. Now, fifteen years later, there is no massive flooding. If the ocean level rose at all, it is barely measurable, and it was likely caused by other things.

Except for a few people like me, the failure of the prediction is ignored. As a prophet, Gore is an outright failure. According to the Bible’s requirements for a prophet, he lacks the credentials. All of God’s prophets are 100% right or they are not God’s prophets. Gore was not only wrong, he was drastically wrong.

Yet, he is still held in high esteem by those who worship the mother earth. They ignore his failure. Every thing he teaches is still held as undeniable fact. And yet, today, we can see it was a boldfaced lie and never had any truth to it.

And so, again, the FOCs tell the lie over and over that the no good police must be done away with. This time however, it fails to become fact. People are losing businesses. Women are being raped. People are being shot and babies are being killed. Guess what? De funding the police was a great disaster.

The FOBs don’t mind the damage. They just don’t like press. So, they blamed the idea on the republicans.

Now that was really smart. They tried to cover up one lie with another. Usually that sort of thing works for them. They have had enormous practice with it. They meet behind closed doors and come up with a lie. It doesn’t have to be believable. They just have to be able to sell it. The secret is simple. They all say the same thing until it becomes fact.

This time it went over like the proverbial lead balloon. After all, we are speaking of the lives of thousands. When the basketball hit the ground, it didn’t bounce. People realized the lie for what it was and the FOBs realized they were worse off than before.

Now they have come up with their own idea of funding the police. They would fund them with federal tax dollars. That has politician advantages for them in may ways. Mostly it makes the FOCs appear to really care, which they don’t. They are now solving the problem, which they are only making worse.

Moreover, it helps them as controllers. Anything they fund, they control. Before the police were funded locally. Now they will be funded federally, which means the FOCs will control them. That is better for them, worse for us.

In other words, it is a power play, plain and simple.

They already are taking control of our schools and medicine(Obama Care) in a central authority. If they have their way, they will soon control law enforcement centrally as well. Eventually, their hope, control it all under one central authority. Then, effectively, the states would have no authority.

Before we permit the federal government to fund/control the local police, maybe we should think again.
