Justice Delayed (The old axiom)

Justice delayed is justice denied. I tried to find out who originally said it but I failed. Whoever was the first one who said it, he was far before my time so I guess he won’t mind if I use the quote, as have many others. Martin Luther King paraphrased the quote and no one called him out for it.

At any rate, it is quite obvious that it is true in many ways. For the victim, time aids the perpetrator avoid prosecution. Old memories fail, documents are lost and, of course, witnesses die. For the accused, if he is innocent, he may spend months or even years in jail while no evidence is ever presented against him. Then too, of course, he can suffer the same problems as the prosecution. After all, if he loses evidence or witnesses, his justice has also been denied.

After President Kennedy was killed, they had a brief investigation. Then they sealed it for fifty years. The reason they gave was that after 50 years, most of those involved would be dead. I was a teen at the time, in high school. I didn’t understand the decision then and I understand it less now.

In my mind, if Kennedy was not killed by Oswald, then Kennedy and his family had been denied justice. By the way, Oswald too was denied justice. By sealing the investigation, they insured that that, if justice was not done, justice never would be done.

It goes beyond that. It has caused rumors and speculations of rumors. The one thing that bothers me the most is one question. “What did they know that they did not want us to know?”

I am not one of those deniers. I suspect that Oswald was the one who pulled the trigger that fateful day. He might have even pulled it twice…. Three times, I start getting a little suspicious. I am not one who is ignorant of guns. In the Marines, I qualified with an M-14, an M-16 and a .45 cal pistol. I have fired an M-60 machine gun, an M-79 grenade launcher and one of those stove pipe things they use for killing tanks. Oh, I can’t forget, I also fired a shotgun a number of times.

I also realize that a person can fire a bolt action rifle fairly rapidly, if he is well practiced. I have neither seen nor heard that Oswald was well practiced. Moreover, as a marine, if he had his choice of weapons, he would not have used a bolt action rifle. If accuracy were so important, maybe, but marines qualify at 500 meters with semi-automatic rifles regularly…without scopes. From what I understand, the range was nowhere near that far. Any decent semi-automatic 30-06 rifle would have worked, though the scope would have been a little bit of a benefit.

The big advantage of a semi-automatic is that, in the same time, Oswald might have killed 5 or 6 in about the same time. He would have never had to take his finger off the trigger nor would he have spent as much time taking aim. Sorry about those who want to stick to the report. I don’t buy it.

Something else that bothers me. When I was going through boot camp, something that was drummed into our heads from day one to the day I graduated, plan ahead. That means one of two things happened. Either Oswald ignored all boot camp training on the matter or he made plans that did not work out. I prefer to believe the later.

Indeed, I would suspect any investigator with his eyes wide open would realize Oswald had a plan that went bad. Taking off by foot indicates panic, not planning. My guess is that someone was supposed to be waiting for him as he left the building. The two of them were to take off and get lost in traffic. His cohort panicked and left him behind. On the other hand, the man, the planner behind the whole thing, planned to leave him behind. That would suggest that there was indeed a planner, something that the Warren Commission refused to admit, in spite of all the evidence suggesting it.

If no one was helping him, where was that getaway motorcycle he left behind, or at least a bicycle. To this day, I have never heard anyone suggest any escape plan. For that reason alone, I simply don’t believe the Warren Commission.

I could go on but it is not my point in this post. It is a mere example of how the axiom is so true. Certainly, because of the Warren Commission’s decision to seal the investigation, it only causes suspicions to simmer. To make matters worse, it has been over 50 years and there are still things they are keeping under wraps. What is it that they don’t want known? What piece of justice are they denying to Kennedy, Oswald and to us?

Nonetheless, it has become a practice to withhold justice for a time, hoping that no one will notice. They keep saying there was no fraud in the 2020 election all the while refusing to investigate it. If they can stall us for a few years, it will destroy any evidence. Then, they can truthfully say there is no evidence of fraud.

They keep people locked up for the so called insurrection and they deny them a trial. I suspect some have never been able to enter a plea. And, forget any evidence that might clear them. It’s been six months. They have had plenty of time to hide and/or doctor any such thing.

Now, they have a new way to deny justice. You say something they don’t like and you get fired from your job. If your employee does not fire you, then they go after your employee. There is no justice. There is no court. If there were a court it would be as in the old movies. “Don’t worry. We will do it right. First we will try and convict you.” A kangaroo court would have more justice.

They wrote The Constitution to protect us from the government. They never figured they needed to protect us from the cancel culture.

And so it is, we have to watch what we do, what we say, what we think…not because of that the government might do to us, but out neighbors. Orwell was afraid of government becoming big brother. Well, big brother is here. And now, big brother gives orders to the government. And, of course, there is no justice at all. What passes for justice comes from social media.

What we call social media is really oppressive media and they do as the Nazis did prior to WWII.  They shame anyone who does not think as they think and they destroy them in the public square which they call social media.

A Whole Lot of Disseminating Going On

Something to remember about disseminating info.

When someone is disseminating accurate info, or likey accurate info and you keep them from disseminating it while claiming it is not accurate, in effect you are disseminating a lie. In some cases, this might involve the lives of people.

Well, let’s see, the FOCs and their social media refused to let out the info on the lab production of the China virus, for over six months. They derided the Hydrocortisone only to find out it was effective in the early treatment of the virus. It would seem that one cost a few thousand lives. Then again, they don’t care. It was all about making the president look bad. I mean, how can they win the election when President Trump is doing such a good job.

Then there is the mask theory. Personally, I believe they do a little good, though I suspect it is hard to prove. There is no way a mask will stop a virus 100 thousands of an inch in diameter. Occasionally one will get caught on a fiber but if the virus is in the air it will go through that mask as if the mask isn’t there. The only way it might work is by catching droplets that contain the virus. I have no idea how effective that would be.

Let’s not forget the thing about Black Lives Matter. Sorry, the statement elevates African-Americans above all others, including Latinos Indians Israelis and Asians. (Sorry if I left any out.) Moreover, the statement has holes in it. No one in the organization seems to mind when one Black man shoots another, even if the other is only 1 or 2 years old. If some ninety year old black woman is killed, it doesn’t matter because she was not killed by a white policeman. If Black lives matter, then they matter, and they do, why don’t they matter when abortionists kill them, at the beginning of life.

These social media, AKA Big Tech, have a lot of blood on their hands. People genuinely try to save lives and big tech destroys these people, thereby disseminating bad info, thereby , in effect, killing people. We are not talking two or three lives. We are not talking hundreds, but thousands.

But then their lives matter not, no matter what their color they are. It is truly about the power. When it is discovered that the social media made a mistake, there is no apology. There is no one who pays a price. They simply make the change so that people can again make posts about the virus starting in the lab.

There is to be that there is one person who has truly disseminated bogus info for over a year and in a criminal way. Why is Fauci not in prison yet? Why isn’t he wearing an orange jumpsuit?

Reparation

Much has been said in the last decade or so about reparation, right or wrong. I will not try to argue the point one way or the other, just explain some of the complications.

Instantly, if reparations been made right after The Civil War, there would have been at least one problem. Not all blacks were slaves nor were all white southerners slave owners. I can’t remember just what the ratio was but I did see it one day. It seems to me that the quote was one in nine southerners owned slaves. It does seem a bit unfair to make any northerners pay reparation nor the eight out of nine that were just eking out a living, possibly by the labor of their own hands.

Moreover, we would have to find those black men that owned slaves and make them pay. It would only be right. Also, to be sure, there were people in the south that helped the slaves escape. It certainly would not be right to make them pay when they already risked their lives for the sake of slaves. By the way, some of those people did pay the price when they were found out.

There are many things that complicate reparations as time went by. Over the years, the US had enormous immigration. These immigrants had their own problems with bias and mistreatment. It is one reason why many of the police in New York are of Irish descent. Policing was almost the only jobs they could find. Besides, and more important, anyone entering the country after 1865 never had slaves.

My best guess on those stats is that less than 5 percent of those who are white are descendants of slave- owners and it would be difficult me wrong. The problem is identifying them. Finding descendants of slave owners is just almost impossible. Moreover, there are likely many who are mixed. Some may have ancestors from both slave owners and non-slave owners. I would guess the reparations would require determining percentages and make them pay accordingly. That in itself might be quite a trick.

Finally, not all those we call African-Americans or Blacks have ancestors that were slaves. Many have ancestors that immigrated after The Civil War. Do we provide reparations to them too?

The truth is that there is no way that any human or group of humans could determine a fair and equitable way to determine who should pay or who should receive payment for the wrong that has been done, and to be sure, much wrong has been done. (mostly by democrats I might add)

There are but two alternatives. To require all white people to pay to all black people or for no one to pay anyone. One is just as unfair as the other. Besides, just how do we go about determining the amount? This in itself might take years to determine. And after, some would feel wronged from both sides…and they would mostly be right.

One thing I learned early is that life is not fair. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. It is just the way it is.

However, as bad as it was for the ancestors of the Black people, current day Black people do live in the greatest nation in the world. Most of those people are good. A few of them are bad. Yet, each and every one is American at birth. There are people of every nation that would give everything that they have for that, regardless of color.

My own personal opinion is this, that we should all respect one another. Problems begin when we don’t.

A Few Redemptions of the White Man

If we listen to some, the white man, all white men are the worst creatures to walk the earth. However, let us remember a few redeeming actions of men who were white.

  1. Though he was not successful, Thomas Jefferson tried to make the black people equal under the constitution. He was forced into compromise in order that the revolution might succeed.
  2. During all the years of slavery, white people, under danger of being imprisoned, moved thousands of slaves into Canada. It was not enough to move them into the North. Due to a Supreme Court decision, slaves that were caught in the North had to be returned to the South. The folks who took part in this were white and were referred to as the underground railroad. Moreover, most of them were Christian.
  3. Let’s not forget that the vast majority of those who fought for the North were White. I will admit, many were conscripted. Many had other reasons for which they fought. Yet, they fought and died; and made the black man free.
  4. John F Kennedy, a white man, originated the equal rights act. At the time they voted it into law, those in the Senate and the house were all white. As an aside, this was in spite of the democrats efforts to stop it.

We white folks aren’t aren’t perfect, individually and collectively. However, there are many of us who have tried. That we should be collectively convicted is in itself a crime. I must admit, I have had my moments that I am not so proud of. On the other side of the coin, I have met some men who were black that that had nothing but contempt for me, though they never knew me.

Maybe one of these days, men will learn to look beyond the color of the skin, as Martin Luther King dreamed of. However, at this point, it is certainly not true. It is improper to give one person any privileges over any other person because of the color of his skin, regardless of his or her color. It all leads to disaster. Either way, it will cause anger even if it is not manifested. It can and has led to violence even when there was no provocation.

In the end, there are no magic wands that someone can just wave over the land and all the prejudice will go away. However, there are those who want to take advantage of the natural divisions: black, white; rich, poor; man, woman; Irish, Italian and Asian. I am sure I left some out. Beware of those who know of these weaknesses which we have have created.

Some seek to riches. Some seek power. On the other hand, some of our our opponents seek to use these weaknesses to overtake us and remove our freedoms. Some even want to make our country part of theirs.

Even if there is no outside influence, our civilization will tear itself asunder if there is racism. There will always be racism when there are those who encourage racism for their own purposes. Martin Luther King insisted on non-violent demonstration. Today, it would seem violent demonstration is the only kind. I suspect Martin Luther King would have no part of it.

Personally, I believe it is about time for all of us to respect each other; but then, I have always been a little bit of an idealist.

Call It What It Is: Theft

Many want to dance around the subject with fancy words. They try to invent reasons and concepts that just aren’t there.

When a male takes part in a sport intended for women, it is theft, simple and out outright.

In the least, they steal a trophy. At worst, they steal money in the form of scholarships. No one can convince me otherwise.

Moreover, any college that would recognize such a thing is aiding and abetting in the crime. Sorry, I don’t like sugarcoating sin in euphemisms . God said “Thou shalt not steal.” and this is outright stealing.

Those who take part in the theft might think that they are winners but they deceive themselves, perhaps the worst kind of deceit. Those who assist the thieves show their lack of respect for God and women. They too are part of the deceit.

So, if you’re really honest with others and yourselves call it what it is: Theft.

Open Question for One and All

Former UN Ambassador under Obama (Samantha Power) requested the unmasking of several people (around 7 if memory serves me properly) who were in the Trump campaign.  My question is simple, Why?  What purpose did it serve?  Certainly, it can’t have had anything to do with Russia.

I cannot imagine that her job would involve any need to unmask anyone.

For me, it would seem to shoot a hole in their logic that all the unmasking was justified.

I mean Samantha Power, seems a nice woman.  Of all those on the Obama administration, she seemed to me the least objectionable.  So far, I have no idea who she unmasked and, of course, I have no idea why.

Naturally, I don’t have a list of duties for the position, but, as near as I can tell, she was not much more than a mouth piece for Obama and, hopefully, the United States.  So, if anyone can give me a reason that she had for unmasking anyone, please let me know.

Personally, I have about come to the conclusion that all permission for unmasking should require the president’s explicit signature.  That way, he would not be given that wonderful “plausible deniability” that Obama has relied on.  It would seem every time someone asks him about any of it, he claims he had no knowledge of it.  Either he is lying or his staff kept a lot of secrets from him.

Moreover, it displayed how little the Obama crew respected the law and the incoming administration.

Love of Money

Some say the Bible says that money is the root of all evil.  Actually, that is not true.  First Timothy 6:10 says that it is the love of money that is the a root of evil.  (seems to me, older versions say the root, nonetheless, it is one of those almost quotes that serves the devil’s purpose.  You see, money is not root of evil.  Indeed, it serves a purpose for God.  It permits people to trade in an organized way.

On the other hand, when people take money through robbery or deceit, it defeats the purpose of money.  Normally, money represents something you contributed to society.  For instance, a doctor saves lives.  For this, he receives money.  With the money, he purchases other things: food that represents the work of farmers; cars that represent the work of factories and miners; and a home which was built by a whole bunch of folks.

It might seem to you that I am changing subjects; but please bear with me.

I was speaking to a Vietnam vet one day.  He asked me if I put in for some kind of Agent Orange compensation.  I told him that I was never near the stuff and I never suffered from it.  He told me to apply for it anyway.  He said we are all entitled to it.

Quite frankly, I could use the money.  However, to me, that is dishonest.  I did nothing to earn that money.  Therefore, if I received that money I would consider it thievery, even though it might be legal.

If I had taken the money, I would still been a thief.  So it is that the world is full of people who have no guilt in taking money that is not theirs.

…and so it was, when President Trump tried to distribute money to people who really need it.  those who had conscience lined up and took the money, even though they knew it was not intended for them.  Naturally, the dummycrats made their attempts to distribute the money to their contributors.  This, of course they did, knowing that the people who really needed it were being denied while they tried to incorporate many of their political ideas.

Businesses, colleges, and who knows who all, applied for the money and received it.  This, of course, meant that the ones who needed it didn’t get it.  That, however, is beside the point.  Though they knew it was wrong, they applied for it.  It was legal theft.

Fortunately, much of the ill gotten gain was returned; but only because they were shamed into it.

You see, apparently, they had a love of money that provoked them to do evil.

It is sort of the problem with government distributing money.  Much of it goes to legal thieves, those who are provoked to evil by their lust for an easy buck.  They have no respect for those from whom they steal.

As a side note:

It seems every time New York suffers a crisis, the rest of the country pays the bill for their lack of preparation.  If it weren’t for the loss of life, I would suggest we should have just let the state sink or swim on their own.  I had a storage shed in my back yard.  When it got wiped out during a storm, no one from New York offered to help me out.  When they get hit by a storm, we pour tons of money into the rebuilding of New York.  Just maybe, if we let them sink or swim on their own, they just might start preparing better instead of crying for ventilators on TV hour after hour… after the fact.

Let’s face it; a little prepping is a good thing.

Definition of a Milli-second

Some time ago, I had a laugh when I heard a definition for the millisecond as the time between when the traficlight turns green and the when the person in the car behind you honks his horn.  I suppose this is still true but we need to add another entry that just might be a little more accurate.  I have observed that it is now about the time between when someone goes on a shooting rampage and the time the dummycrats call for gun laws. (You might notice I waited a while before I wrote anything on the subject.  I actually have some respect for the survivors of those who were killed and those who were wounded.)

I find this very disrectful.  Then again, why should I expect the dummycrats to be respectful. That would require some intellegence.

It is just another reason I call them dummycrats.  None of the laws they suggest would have stopped any of the shootings.  I might add that one man in California killed two men with a knife.  Moreover, he took a gun from one of those he stabbed.  No gun law would have stopped those killings.  Moreover, had he not been stopped, he could have used the stolen gun to kill many more.

By the way, lest anyone forget, one of the most successful mass killers in this country used a truck full of fertilizer.  Two terrorists used pressure cookers and likely leaned the method on the web.

When I was in the Marines, I carried an M16 rifle, the military version of the AR15.  I suppose you might call the M16 an assault weapon, but it is capable of both semi and fully automatic.  An AR15 is not an assault rifle.  It only looks like one.  It is strictly semi-automatic.  There are many other rifles that fire semi-automatic.

The truth of the matter is, all known; the dummycrats simply want to rid the country of guns.  They don’t like the second amendment.  Actually, they don’t much like any of The Constitution.  It is why they keep trying to alter it or ignore it.  Oddly, they even use it to destroy it.  The truth is socialism is not compatible with The Constitution.  It is why the dummycrats keep trying to do away with it.

Let’s take the example of the First Amendment.  This is where you can say what you want, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their ideas.

Now I have one more definition for you: Racist.  This is when someone does or says something the dummycrats (specifically the squad) don’t like.  The label is applied automatically, sort of, like when a knee jerks when a doctor applies his little mallet to it.  By the way, using the term requires about the same amount of intelligence as the doctor’s mallet.  About the same intelligence of the dummycrat.
