Atkinson Fired

I just found out that POTUS fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence watchdog.  Good riddance.  I wish he was fired at least a year ago.  His decision played an important part in President Trump’s impeachment.  The man ought to be totally ashamed of himself.  I don’t think the man feels any remorse, which only goes to prove how horrible a man he is.

Success

Some people work hard for success.

Others, like the dummycrats, destroy others to succeed.  Ever since Mr. Trump became President Trump (and actually a little before) the dummycrats have done what they can to destroy him and his presidency.

In itself, that is bad enough.  The problem is that they have no reservations about also destroying the lives of virtually all who are around him.  At the least, they destroyed the lives of 4 good people, including a 4 star general with an impeccable record.  In addition, they have all but brought the workings of congress to a stop.  That is not right.

Even worse, in their effort to destroy President Trump, they have no qualms with causing harm to our nation and its citizenry.  This is true even to the point that they cheer when the stock market takes a downturn.  …and, this includes the corona virus.

Now tell me, just how dumb is that, to cheer when our country is potentially overrun with a disease that just might cost the lives of, perhaps 3 million.  Some of them just might be your grandparents.  One or two of them might be relatives or friends who have had transplants.  To be sure, anyone who has asthma or COPD is subject to being killed by the virus.

Of course, they don’t care.  They don’t mind if businesses and travel all slow or possibly stop.  They aren’t the ones who will suffer.  They will always have the best of care and they will always have their access to transportation.

I wonder if they have considered what might happen when senators and representatives start showing up on the job wearing masks.  Think of how it might be like when that colleague next to him starts coughing and sneezing.  Will it become a requirement for representatives to be checked for fever before entering either chamber.

Regardless, the fulfillment of their wish might become  their worst nightmare.  Many of those, such as Pelosi are old.  If they are exposed, the best healthcare will do them little good.  There is only so much that even the best doctors and the best medicines can do.

Nonetheless, none of them, unless they become personally threatened by the bug will have any remorse for calling the president a xenophobe for keeping travelers from China out of the US.

 

It is why I call them dummycrats.  It is why I encourage the construction a wall from one coast to the other.  Presidents will come and presidents will go; but the wall will continue doing its job for decades or even centuries.  It is the only thing, which provides some insurance that, when a dummycrat becomes president, he won’t do something really do something dumb, such as open the flood gates.

Lines, Fences and Walls

My kids used jump the fence in the backyard all the time.  It beat going around the block.  On the other hand, most of us respect fences.  Well, actually they did too.  It just was that it was convenient and they knew it was okay.

Most of us cross lines all the time.  The state line is just a few miles from me and, when I worked, I crossed it at least twice a day.  The only way I could really tell were those signs alongside the highway.  However, those lines are very real.  Just ask the local police.  I am sure that, from time to time, they are frustrated by them.  When I was on grand jury duty, I got to see the results of them regularly.  People came down into Mississippi and committed small crimes and headed north.  Most of time, the state line protected them.

We don’t normally think much of it, but most of us respect property lines.  We stay on the sidewalks.  Even when there is no fence, we rarely go onto the property of others.  It is something we are taught from the time we learn to toddle.

However, some don’t respect the property lines of others.  I was reminded of this when a man walked into my house with a 45 caliber pistol.  Fortunately, I lived through that.  Not all of us do survive such things.

For decades, the US had no more than a border line between Mexico and the US.  Most respected the line.  Not so much anymore.  When they see no obstruction, they cross into the US, knowing that it is against the law.  They have no respect for those who immigrate legally.  They just decide to jump in the front of all those who seek to immigrate legally.

Then, of course, there are fences.  Most countries have fences on their borders.  Some even have walls.  Some of us have fences around our houses.  It discourages people from entering illegally with 45s.  Obviously, they don’t always stop people but they do discourage it. Without the fences, trespassing would be far more common.

For a long time, we had a fence along the boarder with Mexico.  I actually saw it a time or two.  It was all we needed.  Most who approached the fence realized they were supposed to respect it.  This is not so much anymore.  The fence will hardly slow them down.  By the way, that goes for fences on personal property too.

In the old days, when someone had no respect for the border, we rounded them up and sent them home.  Nowadays, it would seem illegal aliens are a protected bunch.  They must be handled very carefully.  After all, they now have more rights than legal immigrants.  They have more rights than citizens.

Walls are distinctive from fences and lines.  Mostly, walls, by definition, are more difficult to cross.  People confronted by a nice tall wall will generally give up, turn around and go home.  Some try to go around them.  That becomes impossible when there are no gaps in the wall.  Some try to go under them.  It is proof that they work.  No one would go through all that effort if the walls didn’t work.

Regardless, none of them work when we, as a nation promise open arms, free health care, schools and food stamps.  It is the nature of man.  Whatever behavior is rewarded, is the behavior you will get.

I am in strong favor of big walls, or deep trenches.  I don’t care much which.  However, none of it will work when we keep rewarding the illegal alien.

  1. When they cross over, we must do all we can to immediately return them.  It is a horrible thing to promise them paradise and then treat them like dirt.
  2. We must make sure they cannot find employment.  It is one of the biggest drawing cards.
  3. We must double down on those who commit crimes.  When we find someone committing a crime, we should put them in prison and then insure they go home after they finish their time.  This protects those living in the US illegally, those here with visas as well as us citizens.
  4. Anyone found crossing the border a second time should spend one or more years in prison before being sent home.  At first, this will crowd our prisons.  However, once they figure it out, they will stop coming north.
  5. The problem of visa overstays must be resolved.  When they arrive, they need to be made aware that they must live according to our laws and they must be clearly told that if they overstay their visa, they will be punished.  This must be enforced even for those who have lucrative jobs.
  6. Those who enter illegally must be prevented from ever becoming citizens or given visas.  This should also apply to those who overstay their visa.  If they won’t respect our borders, they likely will not respect our laws.  We already have enough people her who don’t respect the law.

If we don’t do these things, our immigration laws will mean nothing.  Still, we need to build the walls.  Lines and fences no longer work.  No one seems to have any respect for them.  It is important to stem the flow of illegal immigrants.  But it is also important to stem the flow of drugs prostitution and sweat shops.  By the way, it will also save us a bundle on the cost of feeding and educating them.  At this point, we could have built four walls 40 feet high along the entire border with what we would have saved just last year.  That is likely a low estimate.  Maybe we could have made a fifth wall.

The truth is that walls stop people from crossing the border.  Nothing else will.  More important, by not building the wall, there are armed conflicts.  That is bad for both us and them.  By keeping them south of the border, it might save their lives.  Indeed, it might save their lives by discouraging them from leaving their own countries to begin with.

 

BUILD THE WALL

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.

 

I’m Confused

We don’t know for sure yet, but it would appear that Bernie, an independent, will represent the democrats.

There has been some conjecture that a democrat just might decide to run as third candidate, in order to prevent Bernie from becoming president.

Of course, the whole reason for letting Bernie run within the democrats was to keep him from running as a third candidate.

First I am wondering if anything was accomplished by letting Bernie run from within the democrats.  Second, I am wondering if Bernie will take office as a democrat or an independent.  Finally, I am wondering if the democrats in congress will back him or appose him.  Maybe a little of both.

Actually, it doesn’t make much difference.  They are all in such disarray that President Trump will cruise through a reelection, especially if there is a third candidate.  It is likely the reason they hoped to impeach him.  It is as they themselves said.  If they don’t impeach him, he will likely win the election.  The way things are going, even if they did remove POTUS from office, they would still lose the election.  (Now that would be embarrassing.)

They need to just face it.  When the economy is hot, it is all but impossible for the challengers to take the White House.  This is especially true when those vying for the job are so inept.  Need I really go into detail?

Naturally, there is one way they could still take the election…cheat.  They are certainly trying that too.  With illegals getting driver’s licenses, they are just a small step from registering and voting.  I also noticed the democrats like voting machines.  The reason they prefer them is that there is no paper trail to uncover their cheating.

The best way to prevent cheating is to make sure the win is so great that it is undeniable.

REPUBLICANS, LET’S VOTE.

Democrats, you can stay home.  The rest of us have it covered.

Rewards

My rule about rewards:

Reward people for working, they’ll work.

Reward people for doing nothing, they’ll do nothing.

Indeed, it is the foundation of the capitalists system.  When you reward people for doing nothing, it short-circuits the system.  Worse yet, you will frustrate those who work. It’s so simple that even the dummycrats should understand it.  Yet, they don’t.  I think it says something about their schools.

Bolton’s Testimony

Much has been said about the possibility of getting Bolton to testify.  I look at it this way.  If he testifies and says nothing bad about the president, it would add to the embarrassment of the dummycrats.  If he does say something bad about the president, it is still highly unlikely that he’ll be removed from office.  Worst case, he was doing something presidents do and should do.  He is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation.  After all, didn’t Obama have Trump investigated?  Didn’t Clinton use her position to smear candidate Trump?   Didn’t the FBI director clear her of all wrong.

Moreover, and most important, didn’t Biden admit guilt before the whole world on a video?  Did he not have the prosecutor of Ukraine fired in six hours?  Does such a thing deserve no investigation?

Bottom line, whether Bolton testifies or not, there will likely be little or no difference.  I once read some very wise words that I believe apply.  If it doesn’t matter, then it doesn’t matter.

As a side note, if they go into calling witnesses, there are two things that will be true.

  1. nothing will be passed by the Senate until the trial is over, possibly Till may or June.  (I doubt it will go longer.  After all, 1/3 of of the senators do face reelection.)
  2. those senators are going to get awfully tired of just sitting there twiddling there thumbs (or whatever they use to fight off the boredom) while they listen to the dummycrats spin their lies.
