What They Don’t Say

Something I have repeated a number of times is that the most successful way to fool someone is not so much by what is said, but by what is not said. It is certainly one of Satan’s most effective methods. When he was tempting Jesus, he quoted scripture, the ultimate truth. However, Jesus quoted scripture back at him, the parts that Satan decided to leave out.

And so it is that, repeatedly, I hear the covid19 stats quoted over the TV and radio. They keep talking about how the infection rate is climbing. On some occasions they point out that the hospitals are getting crowded.

They like to leave out the part that the rate is partially increasing because of the large number of tests run daily. I say, partially, because, some of the increase is real. However, the increase is not as great as the numbers would indicate, not nearly. If you’ll recall, the City of New York was running out of beds. It is only recently that the city had to open the emergency hospital built by President Trump earlier.

I don’t know, but my best guess, for what it is worth is that the real increase is about 30-40% of the apparent increase. This can be guessed by the number of cases that result in hospitalizations.

There is, however, another far more important deception. In every instance that they report the deaths, it is the accumulative deaths. I have never heard anything about the daily deaths. Guess what? It is has been under 2000 a day for the last few weeks. There were several days that it was at or around 800.

Any number of deaths is bad, to be sure. There is no need to repeat the overused statement. However, in this case, it was a stat purposely left out to deceive you. Considering there are 230 million in the US, if my math is right, that is less than 5 people per million.

I don’t like reducing people to statistics, but it is the democrats that insist on it. Every day they shout them from the highest hilltop. The problem is that they don’t call the whole truth out. They like to keep part of it from us.

When I sat down to write this, the first thing I did was to look up the stats. It took me about 20 minutes to find our the daily deaths. It seems no one wants me, or anyone to know the little secret. It might not be hidden, but it isn’t well displayed either.

What does all this mean? Guess what? The doctors are figuring it out. They are finding meds that work. They are finding ways of fighting off the horrid virus.

Oh! One more thing! There is nothing in the stats that explains how many died of other ailments, or maybe even accidents. Such things have a tendency to skew the facts.

So next time a democrat tells you something, you just might want to ask yourself just what it is they are not telling you?

Progression

  1. There was absolutely no voter fraud.
  2. Well, maybe there was a little fraud.
  3. There was not enough fraud to make any difference.
  4. Maybe there was enough fraud to overturn one state, but not the election.
  5. Well, possibility, there was enough to overturn the election, but Trump doesn’t deserve another term.
  6. Okay, they really muffed it, but it was all just a bunch of mistakes. No one did it on purpose.

There is an old saying around computers. I don’t know who first said it, but I suspect anyone who has been around computers any length of time knows it, “To err is human. To really mess things up it takes a computer.”

Certainly this election has proved the case. It would seem that there are more votes in some precincts than there are people, let alone qualified voters.

Fraud certainly is not new. Long before computers men were finding ways of cheating. After the Civil War, Black people were paid to vote 8 or 10 times. The Black man shouldn’t be blamed. He didn’t know any better.

You would think, after 200 years we’d start figuring out ways of keeping elections honest. The problem is that the democrats don’t want it to be honest. If they couldn’t cheat, how could they win?

Nonetheless, the voting machine has added a whole new dimension to cheating. The advantage of the computer is that it is fast. Hence, it allows the democrats to cheat much faster. Moreover, the computer leaves no paper trail. No matter how many times you do a recount, it always comes up the same. …another computer adage. GIGO (Garbage in, garbage out)

Apparently, that was not enough, because this time, they came up with the mail in ballot. This is where, if I find a ballot in the mail, even if it is not addressed to me, I can fill it out and send it in.

Apparently, there were many folks who did this. People, when they arrived physically at the pole, they said, you can’t vote. You already sent your ballot in. Now, how did that happen?

…and the story continues. Indeed, it might be the downfall of The United States. Abe Lincoln warned us of it. He said that if this nation will fall, it will be from within. It just might be that the warning turned to prophecy.

Oh, yes. One more thing. THE REPORTERS WERE IN CAHOOTS WITH THE DEMOCRATS RIGHT UP TO THEIR ELBOWS, OR MAYBE SHOULDER. It is ever conceivable that they were partially be hind it.

The Hard Part

Often I hear things and I wish I had written it down, as well as who said it. First, I would like to get the quote right and also it is only proper to attribute the quote to the proper person.

This quote, I am sure I will mangle. The preacher said it so elegantly, and I can only hope to get close to it.

At any rate, it goes something like this:

When coming to a difficult decision, the easy part is knowing what is right. The hard part is doing it.

I think back over my life of 72 years and the saying echos repeatedly. How many times, I chose the easy way because it was the easy way. This is especially true being as I am a habitual procrastinator. I always put off till tomorrow what I don’t have to do today. Also, if I put things off long enough, I just might not have to do it.

That doesn’t work for mowing grass. It only gets taller and more difficult. Nonetheless, I do hope for rain so I have an excuse to put off.

Excuses are the friend of a procrastinator. We can always find reasons, excuses for procrastinaing. Frequently, it isn’t that big of a problem. Sometimes, however, putting things off can have lifelong results. I know. I’ve seen many of them.

Getting back to the idea of making decisions. The other day, I missed an off ramp. I had to go seven miles before I could turn around. It was an inconvenience. I burnt some extra gas and it cost me a little time. On the positive side, I saw some nice scenery.

On the other hand, I have said things I cannot unsay. I have done things I cannot undo. They are things I need to live with the rest of my life. Oddly, I seem to remember them more than any good I did.

Moreover, there are decisions I have made because they were the easy thing. Perhaps, one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give a person is to do that which is right, even if it is the harder thing.

…and, as the man said, knowing the right thing is the easy part.

One more thing… Liberals like to talk you into the easy solution, not the right one, which is a little harder. They want you to take the easy way, the one you will regret. The country you leave your children will be no where near as good as the one you inherited.

Crooked Politicians

Occasionally, in the old days, a democrat said something well worth repeating. FDR said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. JFK said ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

Nowadays, of course, the democrat invents all sorts of things the country can do for everyone. They have become the giveaway party, which ironically began with FDR. It about reached its apex with Johnson and his Great Society. That went over like a lead balloon. We had a higher percentage of poor after than before.

Truman had a pretty good saying, one which few quote. I don’t know the exact quote but it goes something like this. It is easy to tell the honest politicians from the the dishonest ones. The dishonest ones begin their career poor and retire very rich. (By the way, he did not retire rich.)

I know Biden likes to say he started his career as a poor man. I wonder just what his net worth is today. Seems to me that he has two very large homes in very exclusive neighborhoods. Hunter has at least one house that I wouldn’t be able to afford with four life long earnings, even if it were completely dedicated to the house. It sounds to me that they both have a ton and a half of net worth. I wonder where they got it all. I wonder how he plans to build on it.

It sounds like they has all the earmarks of crooked politicians to me.

It is bad enough that he used his office to make his fortune but Biden has also turned the helm of the country over to the squad. That’s not just bad. It is disastrous. Those communists have no intentions of letting us have it back- ever.

The New Legislature

In 1973, or there abouts, a so-called landmark decision was made by the Supreme Court, Roe vs Wade. Until that point, abortion was illegal in some states and legal in others.

In November, I will be 73. So, I remember the arguments and the demonstrations. Every night it was on the news. At one point, there was a push to make federal legislation to make it legal throughout the country, never-mind some states were strongly against it. In fact, most states had laws against it, at least past the first trimester.

The legislation failed. They couldn’t get it by congress. I can’t remember for sure, but I suspect the president might have vetoed it if they had. However, those in favor of it came up with an end run. They challenged the laws in the courts.

Eventually, it made it to the Supreme Court. A few men in Black robes invented a right and the Supreme Court, contrary to the Constitution, became a legislative branch.

The democrats learned something that day. “If we can’t get something legal, just go to the courts.” and so it has been evermore. Whatever they can’t get past the House or Senate, they just go to the courts.

There is one problem with that logic. They need to make sure they have the right judges on the court. Without them, it won’t work.

Is it any wonder that they are throwing a hissy fit? In order to enact a law, they must do it the old fashioned way and they just might not be able to do it. The people just might not like it when when they do. (such as Obama care)

Worse yet, some of the decisions just might get overturned. Given the state of the art of medicine, sonograms and such, even Roe vs Wade might get overturned.

Is that such a horrible thing? Maybe the legislatures will have to make the decisions. And, by the way, the legislatures are subject to the people. I think that was the way the founders of the country meant it.

And, by the way, that genius, the one that is going to invent the cure for cancer, maybe he won’t be killed before he is born.

Giving Credit

I hate to do it, but I must give credit where credit is due. The moderator was actually somewhat reasonable for the debate. The only thing I would hold against her was that she interrupted President Trump over thirty times and Biden twice, maybe three times. I’m not sure which.

Either way, it is over ten times as many. Nonetheless, when either wanted some time to respond, she seemed equally willing.

I do believe Biden really put his foot in it at the end. He made it quite clear that he planned on doing away with all fossil fuel by 2035. That is simply is not going to happen.

First, it would mean really building up the electrical grid system far beyond possibility. I’m not even sure they could make that much wire in that time. If all cars are going to be run from electricity, we are not only speaking of enough for the current but for the vast expansions of cars as well. I would say that in 15 years, we are talking at least an increase of 15 or 20% of autos.

And that’s not all. What about all the houses and buildings that are heated with natural gas, propane or heating oil?

Assuming that the grid could be built up, how do you plan on generating that much electricity. I have a clue for you. You can’t build that many windmills or solar cells.

Besides all that, with his statement, Biden just lost Pennsylvania. They produce a lot of fossil fuel in that state. and, oh yes, they use a lot of it there too. It would take a lot of solar cells to produce the power to run one small steel furnace.

It is just another of many indications that Joe never did anything but politics. I mean, even an eighth grader might have realized his error.

Money=Power

A few years back, a naturalized man by the name of George Soros took advantage of our capitalist system and made billions of dollars for himself. Since then, he has, seemingly been doing all he can to destroy the very system that permitted him to make his fortune.

Instead of using his billions to accomplish good, he has been using it to undercut the fabric of our constitutional system. His latest ploy was to pour millions of dollars into the election of district attorneys to accomplish his will, to let criminals back out onto our streets.

Legal though it is, it is not the way the system is supposed to work. Moreover, it makes me wonder about the motives of the man. When he became a citizen, he took an oath. Now, it would appear he has completely ignored it. His oath was to protect The Constitution and it would appear he is doing what he can to destroy it.

Nonetheless, at least he is using his own money, which he made legally. On the other hand, it would appear that Biden has used money from the US Treasury to lever his deals. In just one deal, he used 1.5 billion dollars of our tax money to get one man fired. In my book, regardless of the reason, that is just wrong.

Moreover, when you consider the reason, it just makes it all the worse.

How can any honest reporter casually overlook such a thing?

I used to think those doomsday preppers were a little touched in the head for spending so much for something so unlikely. Now, I am beginning to reconsider.

Promises, Promises

I keep hearing these promises that people will leave this country if this or that happens. The latest time was that they would leave if candidate Trump became president… but they didn’t.

They are all still here, every last one of them. What a disappointment. I don’t think so much as one actually left. That was very unfortunate.

Now, on the other hand, if Clinton had become president and she invoked all her promises, they would all surely leave…and they certainly would have a lot of company. No one would like what that woman would turn this country into.
