Just ‘Cause You Can

Those of you that have read my posts know I have a thing about commercials. There is one commercial that shows “people” who are human only from the waist up. Below the waist, they are a motorcycle.

I don’t find it particularly annoying. They don’t play it too often and there is nothing about it that I find that objectionable. However, like so many commercials, I fail to see their point. I can’t even remember what they are advertising.

The one aspect of it that I find confusing is “Why?” It would seem they have some special FX people who know how to make the impossible appear commonplace. As observers, we are supposed to believe these are special beings, who should possibly deserve special respect. I have no idea why or why we should buy what the advertise.

To me, it would appear the only reason for creating the illusion is because they can. This brings the question to mind. Just because we can do something, does that mean we should? Does that make it the intelligent thing to do?

It would seem to me that many people do things not of necessity, but just ’cause they can. Look at what the democrats did during the last Supreme Court nominations. They accomplished nothing. Indeed, they might have even helped the Republicans elect two more senators. If it wasn’t for a quirk in timing, they would have two less and the republicans would have two more. (Does anyone really believe that Alabama would have elected a democrat if they had a strong republican in the run? Does anyone really think the character will be re-elected this year?)

Now there is another nominee for the the court and it looks like the democrats will make idiots out of themselves again. I don’t know why. I guess it is just ’cause they can.

And by the way, the main line media will be right in their helping them.

False Implications

A false implication is another way to say lie or falsehood. It is when a person uses an implication to say that which they know is not exactly true. The democrats have turned it into an art form.

One implication was that they would have never have blocked a vote by a republican president in his last year of office. I’m not gullible enough to swallow that one. Are you? The truth is that, if the situation were reversed they would have done exactly the same thing.

The other implication is that “We the democrats would never appoint and confirm a justice this close to an election.” You believe that one and I have a bridge I’d like to sell you. They believe in doing or saying anything to protect there right to “Choice.”

The truth is that the democrats would have done the same in both situations. There would be one difference. The media would be right there cheering them on. Instead, the media cry out,”Unfair! Unfair!”

I’ll tell you what is unfair, making my wife and me pay those ridiculous insurance prices that Obama Care forced on us. I’ll tell you what unfair is, recalling all our troupes from Iraq exposing over a million people to slaughter.

And by the way, it is also unfair to spy on an incoming president without cause. Truth about that, that’s not just unfair, that is illegal. Whole bunch of democrats ought to go to jail over that, but they never will. You see some people are above the law. All they need is the news media, a bunch of money and a whole lot of conspirators.

Abortion on Demand

Boy, have I gotten an education. I used to think that elections are about this. I used to think elections are about that. Now I know better. You listen to those dummycrats and they will school you too.

It is all about abortion. Not only that, they want abortion all the way up to the point of delivery and a tad beyond. And, oh, yes. They want you and I to pay for it, no matter how detestable we find it. In fact, they especially like to have Christians pay for it.

Sorry. I don’t understand it. No matter how you coat it, it’s wrong. It is murder. The fact that they are taking an innocent life is just an inconvenient fact that they don’t want to face. It is the number one consideration for them, even for some people who call themselves Christian.

If I try to speak to someone on the subject they either yell or put their fingers in their ears. They don’t want to hear about it. As it says in the first chapter of John, when they see the Light they prefer the dark. When they hear the truth, they prefer the lie. It is more convenient.

Schools and Money

About twenty or so years ago, I had the occasion to be driving through the countryside of Pennsylvanian with a friend. We noticed a huge dome somewhat off the the road and we decided to check it out.

It is the first time either of us was exposed to the Milton Hershey School. They have an extensive exhibit there under the dome. It was founded by the man that started Hershey candies. For those unfamiliar with it, it would do you well to look it up on the web, thought a personal visit would be better.

Every year, hundreds, if not thousands of kids attend the school and they don’t pay one penny in tuition. To the contrary. The school provides food, clothing, and even toys for the students. They have some of the best, most driven teachers and the students frequently go on to good colleges and make very good grades.

As a side note, one thing I did pick up off the web is that the students are 30% Black. That more than doubles their makeup of the US population of 13%.

It is ironic, you can’t buy a better K-12 education anywhere in the world for any price and this kids go there for free.

Things might have changed since I saw the exhibit. However at the time, a child had to have three requirements to get in. They had to be missing at least one parent. They could not have any history of being a troublemaker. Finally, they had have a recommendation, such as clergy or other similar person. I’m sure, if push came to shove there was likely some leeway on the recommendation.

Well, there is one other limit. They could only accept so many students a year.

Now, why should I bring up this subject right now. Well, I heard that Bloomberg just sent 100 million dollars to Florida to help defeat President Trump. Now I word it that way on purpose. I doubt that he is really for Biden. He just does not want to see the president re-elected.

I have my suspicions why. I don’t really want to go into that here. I do want to suggest that he could find many better ways for him to spend his money. If President Trump wins the election, he just dumped 100 million down a big bottomless pit. It will do him no good, or anyone else for that matter.

Well, it will make some advertisers happy.

If Bidden wins, he will learn a little about experience. He will learn what it is like to put the controllers in office. Then, all his billions will do him little or no good. When the communists take over, the rich are their first targets. They will take his money and throw him in prison. They will do it for the good of the state.

Now on the other hand, he just might put some disadvantaged children, especially black children into good private schools. It would cost him about 8,000 per student and he would actually accomplish something with the money. He could put over 1000 kids completely through school which would lift them from poverty.

If he could could talk nine of his billionaire friends to each pony up one-hundred million, that would be 10 thousand kids. Not only would they get a far better education, but all the other kids would get a slightly better education. The money in the public schools wouldn’t need to be divided up as much.

But, alas, let us remember his goal. It is not the good of the kids but rather to destroy President Trump. It is certain that history will never compare him and Hershey on the same page, or for that matter, in the same chapter.

By the way. Bloomberg lives in New York. What is he doing in Florida politics. I know they do it all the time. It doesn’t make it right. I hate it when people come into Mississippi with their money and try to get me to vote the way they want me to vote. None of their business how we vote.

There is legal and there is right. The two are not necessarily the same.

Lawyers!

It would seem the democrats already know they are going to lose this election, even with all their extra ballots. I say this because they seem to have all their lawyers getting ready to beg, barrow and steal every vote they need. (and maybe a few more)

It is why it is not enough to just beat them. It must be an overwhelming victory, one they will not be able to deny.

Can’t remember who said it or the exact wording… “He who counts the ballots wins the election.” I am sure the democrats have taken the saying to heart. They don’t care if it is dishonest. Since when did a little dishonesty get in their way. Everyone knows that Kennedy would have never been president had the dead not voted for him.

It is joked about to this day but it set a precedent that they learned from and follow to this day. Remember the hanging chads. Did not Mrs. Clinton tell Bidden not to concede, no matter what. Her implication was that the republicans were dishonest but but it was also a battle-cry to pull out all the stops, no matter how wrong it may be.

Remember. To them, it is all about control. Many of the democrats would be terrified of losing control of the land for four more years. They certainly do not want the control getting back into the hands of the people, the way that the current president wants it.

Energy (Oil)

For a nation to be strong, it all starts with oil, coal and natural gas. We need steel, we need aluminum and we need food, but it all starts with energy. We need the energy to make steel. We need energy by the megawatt to make aluminum. We need energy to extract it all from the earth and we need energy to make the raw products, which we turn into cars, tractors, trucks and a list far too long for me to mention.

You remove the energy from us and our country will go back into the stone ages so fast it would make your head spin.

By the way, we need the oil in three ways for farming. We need it for the fertilizer, for the pesticides and for the operation of farm equipment. If the tractors remain silent, we won’t eat. Those of us who are able, might grow a little in our backyards but not nearly enough. Besides, the plants need water. Actually, so do we. Without fuel, the water pumps won’t work. We might haul it up from the lakes and rivers, but we would have to do that by real horse power the type that eats hay.

But that’s not the half of it. There will be no way to remove the trash and garbage, especially from heavily populated urban areas. Disease would run rampant in weeks, if not sooner.

and, guess what. The dummycrats want us to wean ourselves off oil in a couple of decades. They want us to rid ourselves of it all. It is dumb. Guess what? Our farms not only feed our people here in the US but we feed people all over the world. If the democrats have their way, the folks in other countries will starve too. They will wonder why the largest producers of food in the world aren’t sending them any food. We will have to tell them. Sorry. The dummycrats don’t want us to produce carbon dioxide.

Maybe those dummycrats would like to explain to the children of our nation why we have no more potatoes. Those Black lives who matter. They will die without food.

But they don’t care. They don’t care about any lives, least of all Black lives. Their whole purpose is control. They want to win those elections and they will tell us anything to that goal. The truth is, Obama killed thousands by withdrawing the troops from Iraq early. Ask him if he lost one night of sleep over it. The governor of New York directly caused the death of 11,000 people as a result of the virus. Ask him if he cares.

I don’t know. I lack the research ability, but I would guess at least 1100 of those people who died in those nursing homes were Black, African-Americans. It bothers me more than I can tell and I had nothing to do with it. Had I known and were able, I would have done all I could to prevent it. I don’t think it bothers him one little bit. I sense not one little bit of remorse.

By the way, the government of New York will not let people use fracking to produce oil inside New York. You can easily tell where their interest lie.

As I said, it all starts with energy. Without it, the US becomes another third world country. It is exactly what the dummycrats want. Then they can rule and they can fly around in their planes and drive around in their limos while the rest of us make do.

Unless this is what you want, vote republican and tell your friends to do the same. If you don’t, then after the election, it will be too late. No one will be able to do anything then. and then you will experience first hand what I am saying.

What type of energy will people use then. They will have to burn wood just to stay warm. Do you have any idea how much CO2 and smog wood causes? At least we won’t need to concern ourselves with forest fires. There will be no forests. People will burn the wood to stay warm, those who can. The rest will simply freeze.

Smog in the Los Angeles valley didn’t start with cars but the burning of wood long before white man arrived on the scene.

Contradiction

A few days ago, I wrote that one way to control people is through propaganda, the art of making the unbelievable sound true. Today, let me suggest one way of separating propaganda from reality, contradiction.

Contradiction does not exist in all propaganda, but it does in most. Maybe the best way to demonstrate and convince you of this is by example. Let’s look at the supposed “Green” movement.

In one regard, they want us to give up fossil fuel. Though I am sure there are parts of the movement that would prefer doing away with all mankind, I will confine myself with the less extreme element. These same people are fanatic about cutting down trees.

Now… Let me start by stating on the front end that thoughtless wastes of our resources is horrible on its face. Nonetheless, many of the leaders of these green organizations are among the most wasteful. They don’t want us to drive around in cars while they fly around in personal executive planes. It is but one of their minor contradictions. There mansions are made with wood and their limos drink fuel by the gallon. Some even own yachts, one of the most wasteful ways to use fuel.

However what I really want to point out is their ridiculous attitude toward forests, especially in our western states. They absolutely refuse to let anyone go in and remove even one out of three of the trees. It is something called forest management. New trees can be planted.

The point is this. Every time we have a forest fire, or nowadays what they prefer to call wildfires, that part of the forest is lost. If the density of the trees were to be decreased, it is possible, maybe probably that the fire could be stopped more quickly, saving the forest we have. So, instead, they insist to maintain the density of the fuel and they lose them all, which endangers human lives, which endangers animal lives, and which leaves our hills and mountains bare to the inevitable rains. The resulting floods do no one any good, least of all the trees. The trees must have the soil which the floods will most certainly remove.

And… watch… here is the contradiction. The fire will emit far more into the atmosphere than cars or power-plants. Not only that, the fumes they emit are far more poisonous. Finally, if we had removed one third of the trees, all else being equal, that would reduce one third of the fuel. As a result, there would be one third of the poisons released into the air.

And.. by the way, after all is said and done, after the fire, we still have nothing. Actually, it is worse than that. We have less than nothing. And, worse than that, because of the fires, we lose lives and property.

In addition to all that, we use tons of fuel in the effort to extinguish the fires. In addition, we draw enormous amounts of water from lakes and rivers in an effort to put the fires out. And, in addition, the very forest they desire to save becomes a wasteland; millions of acres of it.

And so you see, the contradiction, the reason it is propaganda. The truth of the matter is that the green movement is no more than another means to gain control over the people.

The sad part is, there are million of well meaning people who have become indoctrinated. In their effort to do what they think is good, they hand the controllers something else with which to control us.

Meanwhile, the communists continue their methods in which they make their rules for all others but themselves. Notice, no leader of any communist country goes hungry. They all eat well while their servants starve.

Their goal is the set this up under one world government. In this world, we would all be workers while they would all be eaters. We would hit our pillows at night, tired and hungry. They would party past midnight. Many of them would fall asleep from their drunken stupor.

As I wrote before, communism is not their goal but rather their tool, their method that they use to achieve their goal, control. The only place that the beautiful world that Marx talked about exists is in the minds of the masses that are duped by the controllers. One of the methods they use is propaganda. It only works when the masses believe it. Right now, the masses believe it. They have been duped. The only question is, can we ever get them to see the truth in time or are we doomed to be another Russia.

I might remind you, very few lived well in Russia. That is true even today. The Russian controllers have left the country in a shambles. The communist controllers have only been replaces by other controllers. Their goal is still the same, world conquest. It is nothing new. It is certainly older than the kings of Persia. It is older than the pharaohs of Egypt. I don’t know when it all started but it seems as old as civilization itself.

The Three C’s

Just Heard about Gov. Huckabee’s new book: “The Three C’s That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and The Constitution.”

Love the name. The only thing that angers me is that I didn’t think of it first. I have not yet read the book. It is not yet in my budget. However, the truth of the matter is… the title speaks volumes.

Way to go Mr. Huckabee. I hope it is a big success. I hope it really makes the liberals angry. Well, it would be nice if it converts a few too.

Control 2

In “Control 1” I wrote about the number 1 way that tyrants can control a people, denying education even to the point of keeping people illiterate.

Today, I would want to go into the second way of controlling the masses, propaganda. In Germany, Russia and China, the communists used propaganda heavily.

If I am going to write about it, maybe I should make sure you know what it is. Technically, propaganda is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.

I might emphasize at this point that propaganda is not necessarily lies. Indeed, the best propaganda contains elements of truth. In fact it might not even contain any lies at all. It makes it more believable. The way it works is by leaving out key information.

If we say that John Doe is a horrible man because he cuts people open, it sounds like a reasonable statement. What we are not told is that the man is a highly skilled heart surgeon.

We believe the deceit that he is a horrible man because of the little bit of truth we are told. If we do not give him an opportunity to defend himself, we might actually be in favor of putting him on death row, especially if he admitted to cutting people open.

For decades Pravda was the paper of record in the USSR. Nothing was printed in it without the approval of the government. People who wrote for the paper were specialists in propaganda. They worded their stories so as to make the USSR sound like a grand and glorious nation. Ironically, it did contain some useful information if you could figure out how to parse through the propaganda and find the little bits of truth embedded in it.

However, as I said in an earlier post, the main difference between Pravda and The New York Times is that Pravda was controlled by the government. The New York Times is controlled by the democrats. In many cases the democrats are communists, so it amounts to about the same thing.

Most papers these days are a mere shadow of past journalism. Many journalists risked life and limb to print the truth. Nowadays the so-called journalists risk life and limb to keep the truth out of the papers. What little truth they do print is to convince us of the propaganda.

Let’s take that Atlantic rag that said the president said horrible things about the marines who fought in Bellow Woods. They took a well known fact, that he canceled the memorial trip and then they weaved a few lies into it. They cite autonomous sources (for all we know they are all fictitious. we have no way of knowing.) and then they expect us to believe it.

To some degree it works. Some people want to believe it. It doesn’t matter. The story is referenced by dozens of papers radio and TV personalities. Suddenly it is true, whether or not it is.

The fact is that it really isn’t even a good example of propaganda. It isn’t believable. Any rank amateur could tear apart the story in seconds. Moreover, President Trump was able to produce dozens of sources, real people with real names that called it out for what it was, a blatant lie. Regardless, it did do some damage. It will have to be dealt with by the president’s campaign.

In my own personal opinion, the newspaper did more damage to themselves than to the president. Anyone with a brain in their head will forever doubt anything printed by the paper. Unless it is artificially propped up, it will likely fade away.

Nonetheless, it does demonstrate propaganda and its uses. It also demonstrates why people citing anonymous sources should never be believed. Once I see or hear the word, anonymous, I stop reading or listening. In my mind it would be dumb to continue.

Then again, the democrats are dumb. They continue to read the articles and they quote them as great truths. It is why I call them dummycrats. It is why they are being successfully controlled by the controllers.

Calif. Elect. Blackout Solution

I noticed that California is suffering extended brownout and even blackouts. I spent a few minutes thinking about it and I’ve come up with a perfect solution.

You put one man at the main power switch for the governor and each of the state assembly members. Then, whenever there is a power reduction that lasts longer than 2 minutes, you turn off the power for all those houses. Of course, you make sure that there is no emergency power for any them other than for communications.

I figure that there just might be another power outage, possibly two. I can’t imagine there would ever be a third.

One thing I learned a long time ago. A little motivation goes a long way. When the governor experiences things first hand, he will quickly look at things from another perspective. He will have a new empathy for those suffering as all the rest. It is also possible that his staff will threaten to quit. He might actually have to go to a restaurant to eat or fix his own. If that happens, he just might start opening up the restaurants.

It is the characteristic of those who like communism. They believe that the leaders need not suffer the problems of the masses. It is that “Let them eat cake mentality.”

By the way, it is also what is in store for the rest of the country if Biden is elected. It is called a national nightmare.
