Unmasking Masks

It would seem that, with exceptions, masks have become optional. Maybe, soon, they will be history.

It does not surprise me. If there was a reason to wear masks, they have had two years to prove it. No one did. On the contrary, I have heard reports of studies disproving their effectiveness.

I guess that was the reason for the judge’s ruling. I guess that is the reason the decision was not contested. I would suspect it won’t be long most of us will be maskless henceforth.

Next, hopefully, the mandatory vaccines will fade into obscurity. Then, maybe they will start allowing effective treatments. Seems to me that there are a few we already know of that work. There are even a couple inexpensive ones.

Red Herring

I decided to look up the word to make sure I have been using it right. One meaning has to do with smoked fish. The other somewhat has to do with deception. The following words are are considered to mean the same or nearly the same thing as the second meaning.

Ruse, blind, feint, deception, subterfuge, hoax, smokescreen, trick, ploy, sham, pretense, and distraction.

Whenever anyone representing Joe says that there are 9,000 leases already approved, we can honestly, say that every one of the above words applies, especially ruse, deception, hoax and smokescreen. Their purpose is to hide the truth and deceive. It is all part of a big hoax. Bottom line, it is dishonest.

Then again why should anyone expect anything else from any FOC, especially ol’ Joe.

Many of those leases have no oil. Anyone who would do the research would know it is sort dumb to drill where there is no oil. Moreover, the FOCs have been blocking the oil people every place they are able using super red tape.

In essence, the FOCs have declared war on oil long before Joe took office. They prefer to buy the oil from enemies and terrorist than to pump it out from under our own feet. There is but one reason I can think of for that. They are also friends of the enemy as well as the criminals.

Can anyone give me another reason?

Speaking of criminals, anyone see hide nor hair of that criminal #1, Fauci. He seems to be hiding these days. Maybe he is getting ready to take off for China, where I am sure they will richly reward him.

Dumber Than Dirt, Figuratively

I like Jen Psaki. I do. I have the feeling that we could actually carry on a reasonable conversation face to face. Moreover, I realize that her job is to protect her brainless boss. However, this time she just went over the line.

When asked if starting up the pipeline would help relieve the oil shortage faster than going green, she calmly replied, “No.”

Now, let’s see. The pipeline would relieve the oil shortage in what? 4 or 5 months. Going green? Maybe 30; maybe 40 years. Possibly never.

That either makes her dumber than dirt or a person who tells big fat ones. I prefer to think she’s lying. If not that makes the woman less intelligent than the pet rocks I spoke of in an earlier post.

Then again, she just might prefer to pay for Putin’s war by buying oil that pollutes far far more than Canadian oil. Might it be possible that she, her boss and her friends are far more friendly with the Russians than they accused of President Trump.

Then again, it just might be all of the above.

It Would Seem That Some Consider Crime a Laughing Matter

Recently, when Biden’s press rep., Psaki was asked about crime, she first laughed at the question about Biden being soft on crime. Then, she plead ignorant when she said she did not understand the question. She said she did not understand the “soft on crime” thing.

Just in case she does not read this, just in case someone does read this who can speak to Psaki, this is a quick rundown on the meaning.

  1. The border
    1. He helped and encouraged over a million people to break our immigration laws. To be sure he has invited them, provided help for them on arrival and provided transportation to the city of their choice… all illegal.
    2. He has assisted in the human trafficking, including prostitution, slave labor and to a lessor degree, murder. There is more than one body that has turned up near the border…both sides.
    3. He has assisted in smuggling of drugs and guns.
    4. He has assisted in helping known felons to return to the US, permitting them to continue their killing sprees.
    5. He has permitted foreign agents to infiltrate our country, making it easy for them to cause harm by murder and sabotage.
  2. Encouraging the refunding of police. (His word, reallocate. Same same.)
  3. Using no-justice department to go after conservatives and parents improperly while ignoring the crimes by dems. (Incidentally, where are those swift trials for those held for Jan 6. It has been over a year and I haven’t seen even one trial start. Many have been held without being charged.)
  4. Then too, what happened to all those in the no-justice department that have dreamed up all those false charges about “Russia, Russia, Russia. These people presented false documents and I haven’t seen so much as one of them receive a slap on the hand. That is why I call it the no-justice department.

To be sure, none of this is anything to laugh about. However, it would seem some think it is funny.

One more important thing. As the pressure has built, they are suggesting we use federal funds for the police. Bad idea. They were de-funded locally. The funding should be re-established at the local level. I don’t like the idea of federal funds getting into local law enforcement. Too many strings attached to federal money.

Also, the funding is just a small part of it. We need to straighten out the bond system and the district attorneys. Finally, respect and local support needs to be reestablished. The federal government has no power over this other than to provide the proper encouragement. They helped to destroy the local systems. They should help to straighten them out.

It’s Just Not the Same

Many people like like to point out the migration that took place on Ellis Island and try to equivocate it the avalanche of those coming across the Mexican border. Even as they speak, they know it’s not nearly the same, that is unless they have less of a brain than a nail on the wall.

For those unable to figure out the difference, let me explain it.

First, no one who was sick was permitted into the country. Indeed the hospital where they were kept still stands and, though I might be wrong, it can still be toured. It was where the diseased were kept until well. Those who were not curable went back to where they came from. Had AIDS been a disease back then, no one would have been permitted in with it. However, today it is a political disease and people with AIDS are permitted in regularly, which likely resulted in the loss of many lives. Because there is no desire to do any tracing, there is no way to tell how many. There is no way to make a reasonable guess.

Secondly, it was highly organized. All who tried to enter were interviewed and if they were considered undesirable. they were returned to their country. Certainly, those who had a desire to overthrow the country were not permitted in. Those who had no money or a desired trade were turned away. It was not intended that we should be the welfare state of the world. Finally, those who were criminals were returned to their own country. To be sure, we were not perfect in this regard. Apparently, many criminals did make it through. However, they also turned many away. On the Mexican border, none are turned away.

Third, there were limits, quotas for each country. The obvious attempt was to keep any one nation from overwhelming our civilization. Even though most did separate themselves somewhat into groups, they eventually did assimilate. Until recently, we spoke one language in the schools businesses and our government. Now, when school meetings are held, it is not uncommon for them to be held in three languages. Worse, children are in our schools who don’t know the how to speak English, let alone read and write. They are not the only ones affected. All the learning is hampered.

And, by the way, it makes it more expensive too. Many who of those slowing the learning should not be in the classroom. They are there illegally. If ten illegal children are in a class, that means two-thirds are paying to educate three-thirds. That is not right.

Fourth, many who come over the border are criminals. It causes the crime rates to go up and it increases the cost of enforcing the law. Many communities that were reasonably peaceful now have a meaningful population of criminals who are not Americans.

Fifth, back in the day, cartels did not control our borders. Nowadays, they do control the Mexican borders. The US would be completely right to send in troops and wipe out the cartels. The US is under their attack. However, no one, but not one will do that, though they fire across the river nightly.

If things were now as they were then, I would not mind the immigration. Somehow, I don’t think there are many who will pay me any attention. They are afraid of someone saying something in the social media, which would force them out into the Outer Limits.

So instead, they watch as our nation falls into oblivion.

OH YES! ONE MORE THING. BACK THEN WE DID NOT HAVE THE FLOOD OF DEADLY DRUGS OVER THE BORDERS.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Three Reasons the IRS Will Never Go Away

  1. Power. The tax laws have ways of controlling the way we live. When they provided tax shelters for all kinds of interest, people went into debt, even with credit cards. Then we deducted the interest from our taxes. Now, of course, interest is not so deductible. Now it is limited to our homes and then that is limited. If the dems have their way, the rich will again be able to deduct the interest for their mansions and perhaps for their yachts. I mean a person can live on a yacht, even if it is a 2 or 3 million dollar land yacht.
  2. Power. While specific info on one person is not yet available to congress, general info is. The government can tell where we make our money, where we spend our money and even a little about our health, thanks to Obama Care. This info is power and the dems just love power.
  3. Power. (I know. It is getting a little repetitious.) Congress collects money and they spend it. The more they collect and spend, the more power they have. And congress, no matter which side of the isle, loves the power they get from spending money.

Now with all that, you would think I am in favor of doing away with the IRS. Not so. That is to say, unless they pass an amendment disallowing it. If we did away with the IRS and replace it with a sales tax, it would not be long that we would have both. Then the government would be hitting us from both directions: earning and spending.

Wait a minute. I guess they already do. The feds do collect 1% sales tax; they collect gas tax as well as a few other things. Besides, the state and local government gets the sales tax. And by the way, most states get us from both directions, sales and income. It sort of makes me wonder how we manage to hold onto any of our earning for ourselves.

And so it it is, we give them the money and they take our freedoms. Then they spend our money one things that don’t work, such as modern education like CRT. At the same time, they refuse to spend it where it does work, like on border walls and law enforcement.

I do find it odd that the FOBs just love things that don’t work, like windmills and solar cells. Then they refuse to let us develop energy sources like natural gas, oil and atomic energy. Do you suppose that they like the idea of making our nation a third world country.

Well, at least it would solve the border thing. If they are successful, all the illegal aliens will start leaving, and maybe a few of our citizens. Let us hope that includes all the FOCs

Same, Same

The question was posed to Psaki about people being flown all over the country in the middle of the night. Psaki replied “I would not say it was the middle of the night. When confronted with the actual times, roughly 2 and 4 in the morning, Psaki smiled and said it was early morning.

I don’t know about you folks out there in the real world, but I’d say it is the same, same. As the song goes some people use the long a to pronounce potato, some the short a. It is still the same vegetable. I assure you it has the same taste and it provides the same nutrition.

Psaki was simply attempting to sidestep the actual question, which by the way, she never really answered.

By the by, one more thing. I thought these were the people that would only be here a short time. Me thinks that was a blatant lie. It was so blatant that she could not speak it with a straight face.

I can’t say I totally blame her. Look who she has a boss. Those arrow slung at her must be causing her some pain.
