Politics and Medicine

I would suspect that there is a little politicking in most professions. Surely, medicine is no exceptions. I don’t have any first hand knowledge on the matter, but it only stands to reason that egos do collide from time to time.

However, if there was ever a time for politics to take a back seat to medicine, the pandemic was one of them. Yet, looking back over the past 18 or so months, I see that medicine took the back seat. The dems took the attitude that they should use the disaster to get rid of President Trump, when he was one of the few that did most everything right. His interest was always based on the health and lives of everyone.

There was however one mistake he did make. He suggested that Hydroxychloroquine might be used as a cure. The dems really jumped on that. By the time they got done, you’d think it was one of the worst poisons ever invented by man. Had the president not said anything about it, the doctors could have used the drug to treat hundreds of thousands. However, for the sake of politicians, the use of the drug was virtually band for use against the China virus.

Now it would appear that Fauci, who was supposed to be a doctor (who likely took the Hippocratic Oath) has chosen politics over medicine, which likely led to the loss of tens of thousands of lives. It would appear he does not believe in the concept of, “First, do no harm.” If that were his goal, he sure did get that one wrong. It would appear that he helped to finance the whole thing. Moreover, every time he issued instructions, he got it wrong. Then, while everyone panicked, he played the innocent bystander.

Certainly, China played their role in the pandemic. They decided to play politics too, or perhaps, they decided to take advantage of the problem. First they said one thing and then the other, while nothing they said was true. All the while they encouraged their diseased people to travel all over the world, treating them like human biological bombs.

Now, over a year after the whole thing started, some of this info is coming to light. Now, about all Fauci will say is, “I didn’t do it. It wasn’t my fault.”

And, of course, all the dems can say is, “Trump did it!”

Meanwhile, people with the China virus, TB and who knows what all communicable diseases come flowing unchecked across the border and the dems don’t care. They stand there encouraging them, “Come one come all. Y’all are welcome as two peas in a pod.” Biden made that political decision. I wonder how many lives that will cost. No since asking if Biden cares. We already know, for him, politics and power take priority.

Ping Pong

In my younger days, I played quite a bit of Ping Pong. During my few off hours in Vietnam I practiced my abilities quite a bit. There were a few that could regularly beat me but not many. I used a lot of spin, or what some call English, though I have no idea why.

I had not one but five very mean serves. After the ball bounced on the other side of the table, it generally came up not much more than two inches before dropping off the other end. Mostly, the best way to handle it was to put the paddle under the ball and almost scoop it up in the process of returning it.

The trick was, I often put side spin as well as back spin on the ball, so, if my opponent did didn’t compensate for that, the ball went off the side of the table. Then too, even if he returned the ball, he usually hit it high enough that I could hit so hard that he’d have a hard time seeing it, let alone hit it.

Of course, this worked only half the time. My opponent did get his chances to serve too. Even so, I was generally able to put quite a spin on my return, though I didn’t have nearly the control.

I know I’ve lost a step or two at the game, which also call table tennis. However, give me a chance to practice and I think I could still give most a run for their money. Though I am not as fast, the knowledge and basic skills are still there.

A few months after leaving the Marines, I met a guy who played tennis, the real game as some might say. I had seen him play and he was good. Though I dabbled at it a little, there was no way that I was a match for him.

He was friendly and asked if I played the game. I explained that the only tennis I played was on a small table. Still, he suggested we play a few sets.

Believe it or not, the game is governed by many of the same laws of physics. The big difference is the serve. If you want to have any luck at it, you really need to put some top spin on the ball. It causes the ball to curve down, which allows you to hit it harder and still get it inside the lines. In ping pong, I almost always used back spin as mentioned earlier. However, I did have an effective top-spin serve.

Surprisingly, I did beat him but I felt awful about it. No matter how hard I tried, I went back to my spin methods. Surprisingly, the spin has a big effect on tennis balls, more for the bounce than the flight. He would rare back and hit one of his serves and it was all I could do to hit it back. As I said, he was good.

However, my reactions would take over and I gave the ball a hard spin one way or the other. The ball almost seemed to float to the other side and he’d set up… ready to return the ball with vigor. His problem was that once the ball hit the ground, it went off in a direction he didn’t expect.

In some cases, he swung and missed. In other cases, he didn’t bother trying.

I felt horrible about it. To make matters worse, in spite of every effort not to, I laughed. I understand that sort of thing is bad etiquette for tennis. I don’t know. As I said, I never got serious at the game. It was rare I could find an opponent.

At any rate, after it was done, I apologized and told him that by all rights, he was the better player, which of course he was.

Since that day, I haven’t played tennis and I rarely played ping pong. It’s not that I didn’t like the game, I just don’t have an area or any opponents as I did. However, if I continued to play tennis as I did that day, they would likely bar me from the courts.

As any aside, I did prove some physics. A ball when flying through the air with a lot of spin will curve. I know. I’ve seen it. It is far more noticeable with a ping pong ball than a baseball but they all do curve. It is not some kind of optical allusion.

Also, the spin I put on a ping pong ball falls far short to the spin the dems put on the truth. It’s not even close. They are experts at throwing curve balls. REALLY!! CAN YOU BELIEVE BIDEN IS TRYING TO TAKE CREDIT FOR THE CEASE FIRE?!! Now that’s spinning it.

I Did Not Watch the Biden Show

I saw no purpose in watching the address by Biden. I guess it was a state of the union, but I don’t know. No one that I know of said as much. I guess if it wasn’t the state of the union address, Biden needs to write a paper to Congress. The Constitution does require some kind of report you know.

I thought about calling this post, “Lies on Lies.” Only I think I used a similar title before. However, I think the title is more applicable here. Biden told the lies and then the major media told the lies on the lies.

How is it that I know? I heard excerpts. I really don’t know who the bigger liars were between Biden and the major news media. Some of the stuff the media said, really? Can they really in honesty say how fabulous that speech was? I have seen better by eighth-graders. In fact, when I was going through instructor training, one of of my fellow students was an officer from Peru. Understandably, he had an accent. Yet his presentation was far better and more interesting than Biden’s

Then, all of a sudden, there are dozens of white newscasters that know more about bias against blacks than a man who was actually born black. I don’t know where he was born, but he lives in South Carolina now. That was right in the middle of it all. I think Tim Scott knows far more about being brought up black in the South, much more than Joy Bahar. I don’t get it. Just what school did she go to or training did she undergo that she is going to explain it all to Sen. Scott? How is it that she understands and he doesn’t? How is it that she can say she has experienced the atrocities he did first hand.

The thing is, it is much more than lying. It is plain outright stupidity as well.

Then again, it just might be that someone is putting those words in the mouths of those news broadcasters. It just might be that they have been told, “If you want to keep your job, you say what you are told to say.” It sounds a lot like Pravda. It sounds a lot like organized lying.

The New Royalty

After The Revolutionary War, almost immediately, they offered the throne of the new nation to George Washington. He refused it and suggested that the idea of a throne for the new country was a bad idea. He said something to the effect that they had just fought to free themselves from a throne.

It was totally unprecedented. Always before, those who led their nation to victory assumed the throne. Throughout history it was the pattern. In fact, I cannot ever recall it ever happening any other way, certainly in the major countries.

Perhaps it came close in Greece and Rome, but, in the end, they both had their tyrants, their kings. Though they were not known as such, it amounted to the same thing. Throughout Europe kings rose up and fell. Some kingdoms simply disintegrated, others were conquered, or a combination of the two as with Rome.

The news spread all around the world and it shocked those who heard of it. Then, Washington was voted to be president of the new nation. After serving two terms, he left though they wanted him to stay. He said that no on man should ever serve more than two terms. It again rocked the world. Washington not only turned down the power once, but twice.

To be sure, he likely didn’t want it. More than that, he likely felt he should set a good example for those who followed. Apparently, Roosevelt didn’t feel the same. He was elected 4 times. I don’t know if he would have run for a fifth term had he lived. It is one answer we will never know this side of eternity.

Nonetheless, he established some patterns. Since that time, people sought power. To be sure, they sought power before, but it was on a new scale and it was for far different reasons. Before, people sought the power for the good they could do. Now, they just seek the power. It is now a race for royalty and it has become far more noticeable after President Trump took office. You see, he was not one of the royalty. He was not supposed to ascend to the highest office in the land. He was an outsider. It was not his turn to rule. Besides he graduated from U Penn, not Harvard or Yale. Even more, his degree was in business, not law or politics.

He rolled over all the royalty like a steam roller. More than that, he had the audacity to try to do the will of the people who elected him. He had the nerve to do what was good for American citizenry, not the one world order. He called out the other leaders who were taking the US for ride, which the rinos did not like. After all, they liked their business deals with China and the cheap labor from illegal immigrants. The dems didn’t like him building the wall either. He stopped the future potential democrat voters. After all, they plan was to turn Texas blue as they did California.

There was no doubt it. Something had to be done. Both the republican and democrat royalty had to get him out of office and it did not much how, even if they had to resort to illegal methods. Moreover, they had to discredit the movement he created. It was destroying all the progress they made in establishing their royalty.

I know not what all this royalty has in mind for us, but I do know what they have in mind for themselves. They want to set up a kingdom and they want to rule it. To be part of that kingdom, as with all royalty, there are qualifications. That means you must graduate from Yale or Harvard and you must come from the right family. If not, forget it. You will be as the rest of us. Now let me see. What did they used to call them? I think the word is peasants. I think they called them serfs. I think they called some of them slaves.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter the word they use. The result is the same. They will live like royalty. They will tell you what to do and you will do it. They will tell you what to think and you will think it. Mostly, don’t expect them to give up their thrones as Washington did. That is not going to happen. They will be fighting among themselves to see who will be “king of the mountain,” or in this case, ruler of the world.

It was what Alexander the Great wanted. It is what the Caesars wanted. It is what the English kings and Napoleon were after. It was the goal of all three of the axis nations as well as the Soviets. It is not knew. It is only disguised in a new container.

Insanely Obsessive

I’m not a psychiatrist, but something recently occurred to me. Maybe I could get a professional opinion.

The dems seem to have an obsession possibly to the point of insanity. They tried to remove Trump from office before he became president. They tried to remove him during the four years he was in office. Now they are trying to remove him from office after he already left office. No doubt about it, they seem to be possessed and driven by a demon.

Okay, that is not scientific. While I do believe that demons exists, demon possession is likely not in the book of psychiatry. Nonetheless, it has been used a time or two to represent a person’s state of mind. It appears that the dems will not rest until they have convicted the former president of something, if only j-walking. Only thing is, they can’t even seem to convict him of that.

So it would seem, driven by some kind of insanity, they are trying once again. It is contra-productive. By trying to prove him guilty, they are only proving that no one can find anything of which he is guilty. Even if the Senate were to find him guilty. The jury, the one that really counts, the public realizes his innocence. On the other hand, if he is found not guilty, they will have even failed again.

Then what? Do they pursue him in the conventional courts? I do not put it passed the dems. They just might try that. It will of course only prove my point, that they are insanely obsessive.

Incidentally, as an aside, the chief justice will not be overseeing the trial in the Senate. It would seem his decision is based on fear. It would seem to verify one of my earlier posts. I suggested that fear is the reason the justices don’t want to take up any of voter-fraud cases. Could it be that someone has suggested to them that they should conform… or else? I wonder what the or else is.

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.

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.

“Crazy Nuts”

“Crazy Nuts” is the title of one of my books.  The title comes from the main character, Kathy.  In the book, she explains that her mother wouldn’t let her call people stupid.  She was told it was impolite and it didn’t sound nice.  So she starts using the word crazy instead.  Then, if something is really stupid, she calls it crazy nuts.

The reason this was brought to mind was a news story I just heard to change the name of Columbus, Ohio to Flavortown.  Now that is not just crazy.  That is crazy nuts and I defy anyone to deny it.

HEADLINE: Obama Endorses Biden

That IS NOT news!  It was totally expected.  Who else is he going to endorse?

Now if he had endorsed the current present, that would have been news.  That might even draw more attention than world war three.

Either way, when it is all over, Obama just might regret it.  After it is all said and done, he just might start looking for a cave to hide in.

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.
