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.

Sequels

When I started my second book, “The Detailer,” I had my reservations.   Most of the sequels I’ve read or seen were rehashes of the original.  Moreover, in most cases, they were not as good.  I was determined to make sure all my sequels and all my books are never, in any way, rehashes of any  of my other books.

I also endeavor to improve the quality of each book.  Granted, I might still have problems with the grammar in my books.  Indeed, I do occasionally misuse a word.  However, no one will ever be able to accuse me of just simply rehashing any of my books.  (This is especially true with the “Mitch” series.)

However, those dummycrats don’t seem to have any problems using the same plot in all their sequels.  In no less than 5 attempts at driving President Trump out of office, they have not come up any new plots or any new story concepts yet.  Always they make the accusation.  Always, they are proved wrong.

I would say they end up with egg on their faces, but the media always come to their rescue.  In fact, they aid and abet even in the construction all of the accusations.

Their methods have gone from well planned to hastily constructed disasters.

A whistle-blower?  Please.  How much thought did they put into that one.  It is casual to the most obvious observer that he was in league with the dummycrats from the start, maybe sooner.

Only thing I can’t understand about it… how in the world do they manage to deceive so many.  Maybe it is because it is so obvious that some folks can’t believe that anyone would try such a thing.

On the other hand, maybe it is just that they want to believe it.  No one so easily deceived than those that have a desire to believe the lie.

For those who have not read it, you might want to read “The Prepper.”  I don’t know why, but it is my most successful book.  Most those who have read most of my books enjoy the most.  It is about a young man who thinks he has prepared for any eventuality.  How quickly he learns he left some of the most important things out.

One nice thing about Amazon is that all readers can read a sample without paying one dime.  Just simply click on the book you would like to sample and the first part of the book to you.  As far as I know, you can even read samples from other other authors.  Then again, why would you want to.  You have about 35 to select from that I wrote.

If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry.  You can still read the book on Windows, iPod or Android devices.  In fact, I have read a few books on my little phone that has less than a three inch screen.  For those who would prefer listening to their books, text-to-speech is enabled on all my books.  It sort of makes it easier and safer to read and drive at the same time.

Impeachment?

It is clear that the dummycrats want to impeach President Trump.

They have but one problem.  After 3 years of relentless searching, they have yet to find one thing that will stick.  To be sure, he has used abusive language.  He has been a little crude in speaking of others.  Of course, they absolutely hate him.  Yet these are not crimes or misdemeanors.

The truth of the matter is that the real reason they want to impeach him is that he is a multi-billionaire, which makes him immune to the bribes of the lobbyists.  He does what he believes is for the national good and no bribe will dissuade him.

Knowing threats don’t work on him, they threaten those around him.  They claim they have many things with which to impeach him.  Yet they fail to produce even the most minor thing.  They know if they do vote to impeach him, they will be as the emperor with his new clothes.  If they vote for to impeach, they know they will stand naked before the people, which they know would be very embarrassing.  They know that it will only increase his win in the 2020 election.

So they use another approach.  Instead of levying any real charges, they nit-pick at him in hopes of damaging his name prior to 2020.  They it is their only hope for winning the election.

Then again, they are dummycrats.  If they had an once of common sense, they know that won’t work.  Considering their field of challengers, they should realize that that is not going to happen.  I guess they are not only dumb but desperate as well; very desperate.

By the way, there is one more thing for them to consider.  All those methods they used to try to steal the last election are starting to come back to haunt them.  Those footsteps they hear behind them are prosecutors who are going to charge them with real crimes.  I understand they are already hiring their lawyers in hopes of beating the charges.  My guess is their money would be better spent on an airplane ticket.

Sixth Amendment?

I’ve taken a little look at the sixth amendment.  As near as I can tell, the right to face your accuser only applies for defendants in criminal court.  That means that the worst killer or rapist has the right to face his accuser.  This includes victims as well as any witness.

There are three reasons for this.  First, it is a verification that the witness exists.  Without the sixth amendment, the prosecution can just make up the witness and claim he is real.

Second, the accused is able to question the witness.  Believe it or not, some witnesses do lie.  When the witness is put on the witness chair under oath, it gives the accused the ability to challenge the witness’s testimony.  Strange as it seems, some witnesses don’t tell the truth.  Sometimes they intentionally lie, even under oath.

Third, it gives the accused a chance to uncover motives.  For instance, if the witness stands to gain a few million dollars by giving false witness, it might be a good thing for the jurors to consider during deliberations.

Unfortunately, President Trump does not have this right.  He is not being tried in a criminal court.  He is being railroaded by a bunch of dummycrats that hate him.  Instead of a jury, if impeached, he will be judged by senators.  There is no doubt in my mind that he will not be found guilty.

However, the false charges brought by the false witnesses are also being displayed (very selectively) before the public.  Even if there is no impeachment, the falsities remain and the president never gets a chance to challenge any of it.

Hence, he is not even being treated as well as a serial killer.

May I remind you, we don’t even know if these whistleblowers exist?  Assuming he does, we don’t know his motives.  Finally, there is no opportunity for the president’s lawyers to challenge the accuracy of what they say.

Is this really the way to run an impeachment?  I am sure that if our forefathers considered such a thing, they likely would have written the sixth amendment a little differently.

Then again, they likely never considered the likes of the dummycrats.

Deceit and Lies About Deceit

Some time ago, Rep. Shiff lied by saying he had positive proof of collusion between President Trump and the Russians.  Now we know better.  If he had the proof, as much as he hates Pres. Trump, he would have produced it.  Instead, he says nothing more about it and hopes we will forget about it.

Then, a short while ago, he attempts to make us believe a supposed conversation President Trump had with the president of Ukraine.  It might be laughable but for two things.  First, there are millions of people that believed his deceit and continue to believe him to this day.  After all, he never made an apology and there are those that continue to quote the lier rather the real wors of the president.  Intentionally, he and his conspirators permit the deceit to live on.

Second, The Speaker of the House endorsed the lie.  Staightfaced, she said it was the truth.  (It wasn’t even a believable lie.)

Finally, Rep. Shiff lied about having talked to the so-called wistleblower.  This prompted four Panochios from even the liberal media.

Were there any corrections issued by Shiff or Pelosi?  Were there any apologies from either of them or any of those in the media who were in cahoots with them.

Then what did Shiff, the lier say when he was confronted?  He tells another lie, of course.  What else would you expect?

It is why I call them dummycrats.  It would seem they don’t know how to tell the truth, not even when they are confronted.

The Mess Inside

One of the lines in “My Fair Lady” that I found humorous was when Professor Higgins makes the remark about women:  “Straitening up their heir is all they ever do.  Why don’t they straighten up the mess that is inside.”

Normally I don’t make personal remarks like this, but, sorry.  I just can’t resist.  It would seem to particularly apply to Rep. Ilhan Omar.  More than that, in her case, the mess that is outside is pretty bad too.  It is no wonder she wants to keep it under wraps.
