De Blasio has it Wrong

De Blasio said that when when someone attacks a policeman, they attack all of us.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  A policeman is a representative of the law.  When someone attacks a policeman it is open rebellion of the law and a blatant lack of respect of it.  Anyone that attacks an officer of the law will, without hesitation attack and kill anyone.  Moreover, they will disobey any law to get what they want.

If there is no law enforcement, then, effectively, there is no law.  If the criminal will not respect the law, then he should at least fear it.  By the way, this includes our border laws.

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.

An Unusual Situation

At least sense Andrew Jackson, the Dummycrats have had a candidate running for president.  Bernie Sanders is independent, not a dummycrat.  Hence the dummycrat party will not have a dummycrat in the race.

Just a thought.  I really don’t think Bernie will be the nominee.  I will say this for the man though.  He is honest as apposed to Pocahontas.  She is on record with at least four whoppers.  When the two of them had a disagreement during the most recent debate, I strongly suspect that Pocahontas was the one telling the whopper.  I believe the poor woman can’t help but lie.  I don’t know why.  Most of the lies gained her very little.  In the end, they cost her far more.  I certainly would not want to stake my life, or my country, on her being truthful.  It kind of scares me that she just might become president.

I’m of Two Minds

Which is best?

1. Dismiss the case against President Trump immediately.  After all, they have not truly charged him with so much as one crime.  After the case is dismissed, the Senate could call witnesses exposing the so-called whistle blower and Joe Biden.

2. Allow a full scale trial to go on with witnesses.  The dummycrats have far more to lose with witnesses.  After all, their presidential front runner just might be exposed of committing the very thing they are accusing the president of, abuse of power and quid-pro-quo.  Indeed Joe Biden could end up in jail.  Now that could be embarrassing.

Either way, I suspect President Trump would be the biggest beneficiary.  He just might end up running all fifty states.  Then again, probably not.  Sadly, California and New York are too far gone.  They would rather vote for a mass murderer than for President Trump.  It just must be something in the water they drink.

I guess my preference is for choice 1, though it is really a tough choice.

Oh.  By the way.  Regardless of the means and methods, they really should serve pizza to the senators during the trial.  I will help keep them awake.

 

King James Version

I had a short small chuckle when I saw a bumper sticker that said something to the affect… if it’s not King James, then it’s not the Bible.

To be sure, it is a serious subject.  Nonetheless, the foolishness of such a statement is easy to see.  Even so, in a way, I can kind identify with it.

Now that might sound like a bunch of mambo-jumbo, to be sure a conflict in ideas.  First, for those few who don’t realize the error, let me explain.

  1. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew and Greek. Certainly the Israelites studied what we call the Old Testament for centuries and it was completely valid.  Then, for a few centuries, the Christian Church studied the scriptures in both Greek and Hebrew.  That was, and is today valid.  In fact, for those able to read and understand the original language, it is likely an advantage.  I certainly wished I could read the original.
  2. The King James was written in a dialogue that most of us would have a difficult time understanding. Since it made its way on the scene, many of the words have changed meaning.  Many of the words are simply archaic.  It would be far better to read a translation that is more current, provided it is accurate.
  3. The original King James is not completely accurate. For instance, it translates the  commandant, as “Thou shalt not kill.”  It is almost unanimous among the experts that it should have been “Thou shalt not murder.”  Granted it is a small difference, but it has misled uncounted millions to use the commandant as a reason for not going to war.  Indeed, the scriptures speak of killing many times, but never does it justify murder.

Now that I have so badly ridiculed the translation, let me explain how the person with the bumper sticker had his heart in the right place.  Nowadays, there are many translations, some not so good.  Some suggest or outright say that God is female.  I do not want to consider stepping into eternity with that concept.

Too be sure, it is the modern concept of religion to accept beliefs a-la-carte.  They accept this belief while rejecting others.  Take for instance, Pelosi, as well as most democrats.  She said, as a Catholic, she learned not to hate.  Then, she allows, even encourages abortion.  Moreover, what she said was a lie and most of us know it.  She hates the president so much that she has permitted her time as Speaker to be an abject failure.  Mostly, her only accomplishment has been to impeach POTUS.

The scriptures were never intended as something to select from as on a holy buffet line.  It is akin to creating one’s own religion.  Of course, when a person makes up their own religion, it does have advantages.  However, all those advantages have an end.

In such situations, I am reminded of the passage, an illustration of a man who cuts down a tree.  Half of it he uses in a fire to keep warm.  The other half, he carves into an idol.  Then the man bows down to the idol and prays to it.  Have you ever heard of anything so ludicrous.

Of course, modern man does not make idols like that.  Well that’s not true.  A short trip through Asia will verify that there are still people in this world that expect help from things that cannot help them.  They are just a ridiculous as the idol the man carved from the tree.  Yet, I risk the anger of those who read this.  To them, I am committing a horrible sacrilege.  To them, I am being inconsiderate.

I ask.  Which is more horrible, to present the truth or allow people to continue to believe the lies?  Of course, if there is no God, it makes no difference.  There is no reason for me to rain on their parade.  It all rides on the one question.  Is there a God and who is he.  The question is important enough that we all should consider it.

When Pelosi’s heart beats its last, when she takes last breath and she comes face-to-face with her maker, she just might have some explaining to do.  To be sure, I will have to cough up a few explanations too.  However, she is going to have to explain the death, the outright murder of millions of babies under her watch.  Somehow, I think that will more than singe the locks on her head.

By the way, I prefer the New King James translation.  However, I am sure there are two or three other translations that are good.  Most of all, let’s not practice our religion a-la-carte.  That is even worse than not believing in God at all.  It gives Christianity a bad rap.

The Sky Is Falling

As a child, I heard the story about Chicken Little and how she went around saying the sky is falling.  I couldn’t help but think about the fable recently.  I thought of Pelosi being Chicken Little and how she would go around with an umbrella over her.  All the time, she would be saying “We must impeach or the sky will fall.”   Then of course once the impeachment was complete, she would just casually collapsed the umbrella and put it under her wing.  Finally, as she would say, “Never mind,” she would simply walk away.

Then I thought better of it.  It would be awfully bad to Chicken Little.  Chicken Little might have been horribly wrong but at least she was honest.  She really did believe the sky was falling.  Pelosi, she was lying though her teeth.

Then again, why would anyone be surprised.  After all, she is a dummycrat.
