A Bump in the Road

Several years ago, before I retired, I was coming home from work.  It was about two in the morning and I was on I-55 headed south.  Just before I reached the I-240 junction, cars started slowing.  Traffic was sparse but I took the hint and started slowing too.

I didn’t slow enough, though I did see the reason why the slowdown.  Apparently, someone ran into a lamp post and it fell across the interstate… all three lanes.  I hit the break and right away realized not soon enough.  Knowing that I didn’t want to hit the post with my breaks on, I let off and coasted over the thing.

I just knew I was going to be looking at major repairs but I was wrong.  The Chevy HHR took it in stride and it didn’t even need re-alignment.  I am still driving the car and I’ve likely put 30 thousand miles on it since.  I can’t say I have been really happy with the car but I do have to admit it has a real good suspension system.

It would appear that the dummycrats have hit a bump in the road too.  They saw the bump in the road from a long way off and still hit it dead on.  The obstruction of justice is still slightly unsettled but that whole colluding thing is done and settled.  That boat is not going to float.  Four full scale investigations have found nothing.  Even though the deck was stacked against President Trump in this last investigation, they still found nothing.  Certainly, if there was anything they’d not hide it.  If the dummycrats keep trying to run over that bump, the only thing they will do is lose their wheels.

By the way, there are many in the media that owe president an apology.  Somehow, I don’t think that will happen.  They will have to admit that they were wrong and that does not fit in their agenda.  It would get in their way of one world government.

“Let the Buyer Beware!”

Those who know me know that I am very much in favor of capitalism.  However, there are some who take advantage of capitalism for dishonest endeavors.  Whenever such things happen, the government ought to take reasonable measures to prevent such things.

By the way, such things are not new.  In the Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan, the pirate king claims that he is relatively honest.  He raises the skull and crossbones, and everyone knows what he and his men intend.  The businessman wears a business suit and robs people blind.  Moreover, those that are most likely to steal are those who are members of the bar association.

Well, today I received a letter from a dishonest business.  You may ask, “How do you know it is a dishonest business?”

To which, I say, it is simple.  On the letterhead, I saw “Medicare.com.”  It is an effort to deceive.  It was not from the government.  The Medicare website is Medicare.gov.  There was a disclaimer at the bottom of the letter.  I am sure they want everyone to read it.  On the other hand, if one out of a hundred doesn’t read it, the deception is successful.

For the most part, I did not read the letter.  I cannot tell you what it says.  However, I will tell you who it is from.  I will let you draw your own conclusion as to their honesty.  I will let you decide if you want to do business with them.  As for me, I will not give them the time of day.

They identify themselves as eHealthinsurance agency in New York and Oklahoma.  I would hope you will practice one capitalist saying, “Let the buyer beware.”

A Short Question About Tunnels

Dummycrats claim walls don’t work.

If walls don’t work, why do the smugglers go through all the effort to build tunnels under them?

By the way, I have been notified that drones can work… if they are armed with Hellfire missiles.  Helicopters work real good too… if armed with machine guns and rockets.  They would certainly be very effective, but I don’t think it would be such a good idea.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

The Effectiveness of a Wall?

The Dummycrats and major news media say the wall would not be effective.  They lie.  They can’t seem to help it.  It seems to be in their blood, or maybe it was just the way they were brought up.

Consider, ten people walk up to a fifty foot wall.  One tries to climb it.  The other nine walk away.  That makes the wall 90% effective.  If there is no wall, it is 0% effective, no matter how many drones or other devices are there.  Even if there are border agents there, they can’t stop them.  They get one foot on US soil and they get to go to court.

Maybe my numbers are not totally accurate, but I am relatively sure they are.  One thing I am sure of, the lack of a berrier won’t work and never will, regardless of anything else that is used.

Besides, when they hear about the wall, most won’t bother taking the trip north in the first place.

One of the best things about a wall is that it would drive the violent element away from the border, which would make it safer on both sides of the wall.  That, by itself, makes it worth it at twice the cost.  Saving lives is a good thing.  Obviously, saving lives is not a priority for the Dummycrats.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Dummycrat Lies

Just got through watching The Five on Fox News.  A stupid dummycrat made a dumb statement that I figured needed some kind response.  (I know.  I am being redundant.) She said something to the effect that it was a historic election when 40 seats in the house went to the dummycrats.  (Actually, she used the real party label, but I can’t bring myself to use that label nowadays.)

On its face, it is a lie and it was stupid of her to think I would believe it… either it was a lie or she is even dumber than I thought to believe such a ridiculous statement.  Nothing about it was historic and it was certainly expected.  It was somewhat normal.  Nothing historic about it.  What was historic was that the Republicans picked up seats in the senate.  What would have been historic is if the republicans had held on to the house.

By the way, the Republicans would have held onto the house if the dummycrats would have been somehow prevented from lying.

 

BUILD THE WALL!!!

CNN’s Jim Acosta

I wonder if Jim Acosta even realized what he did.  I saw the thing thing live and I am convinced that he did touch the intern slightly.  That should have never happen.  I am sure he never hurt her but it did likely cause her some fear.  The woman was trying to do her job and he put her in a bad position.  Moreover, he obviously had no respect for the woman.

At the time, he thought of no one but himself.  He wasn’t even thinking of CNN as he caused them a great deal of embarrassment.  He certainly wasn’t thinking of the public as he didn’t even ask a question, but rather made an accusation.  By the way, it was a very poor one.  People who force their way into a country are evaders by definition.  By the way, if they start throwing rocks, they become armed invaders and are guilty of assault.  For this, it would be proper to lock them up and charge them with assault.

I do believe the proper thing for President Trump to do would have been to tell the man apologize or leave.  If he refused, he should have been escorted out.  Then he should have reminded the others that the same thing could happen to them if they insist to speak out of turn.  Even a third grader knows better.

Somehow, Acosta will likely regret his actions.  He won’t be attending any presidential press conferences for a while.  Maybe never.  He might remain at CNN, but he will have to find another job.
