Big Brother & Waste

I was listening to an interview of Robbie Starbuck who is running for 5th district in Tenn and he brought out some points that bear repeating. I won’t repeat his words but I will rather barrow his thoughts

First he came up with a suggestion. The FOCs want to be able to look into our bank transactions. No problem… if they let us look into theirs. In return for passing the law, the law should require them to post all their bank transactions over $600 on a web site the following day.

Incidentally, most do not realize, that $600 dollars as a percentage of income will decrease with inflation for both the FOCs and for us. Today, what we pay $500 dollars for, will soon be $600. Hence, as the years go by, the snooping factor will increase. I am sure they were well aware of that when they came up with the idea.

The other thought he had reminded me of was a store that provided unsold produce to charities at no charge. It went on for a while until one day someone got sick. He sued the store and won the suit. Therefore, the produce that had been going to the charities is now going into landfills. ( I call that wasteful)

It is the nature of the FOCs. Whatever they touch produces waste. The bigger the national budget, the greater the waste. Whereas it is true that the FOCs did not directly cause the waste as above, they are really good friends with the trial lawyers. I am sure some trial lawyer made a bundle on the above.

There is no telling how much food is wasted every year because the Friends of the Criminals. The stores don’t dare donate food being as the lawyers wait as ravenous wolves waiting to pounce. The example that Mr. Starbuck pointed involved a bakery where they tossed the unsold doughnuts daily. None of them went to homeless shelters.

Speaking of which, I wonder just how much the federal government wastes. $600 would not even be noticed. Actually, the FOCs likely skim $600,000 in one month. Some of it goes here. Some of it goes there. Nobody seems to notice. No one seems to care.

By the way, has anyone noticed that Biden’s son is still working for China. It’s true. Seems to me to be a good reason for impeachment. It’s not going to happen though. Biden has a D after his name.

On the other hand, you will not find many capitalists wasting things, for obvious reasons. It is another good reason to promote capitalism.

As a side note, I vote that all people who hold public office should have to work in a restaurant for 6 months. There they will get an education far more effective than any college. They will learn such things as work ethics, profit margins and plain hard work.

For those who would like something to read, check my “about” page. I have a list there of 35 books I’ve written… all fiction.

Counterfeit

In Matthew 17, Jesus told Peter to catch a fish and take a four drachma coin from its mouth. I was young the first time I heard the story. It seemed odd to me. Jesus did not need the fish. He could have made dozens of the coins with his spoken word. I suppose he could have also used many other methods as well. But, he told Peter to get the coin from the fishes mouth.

In the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” we could hear the whimsical song, “If I Were a Rich Man.” I totally enjoyed the song long before I saw the movie or play. To be sure I identified with it. Actually, I still do. I’m not greedy. I would be very happy with a million or two. I would not turn down five or six. It would not solve all my problems but it would solve most of them.

What does the one thing have to do with the other? Although God can make money, He rarely if ever does. On that day, when Jesus was asked about the taxes, if Jesus produced the money out of thin air, that would have been an act of counterfeiting. The money He would have made would have been produced outside the authority of the government and Jesus recognizes authority, even human authority.

I don’t know how that works completely, but had he made that coin, that would have been a sin, and Jesus does not sin. It does go beyond that. Let’s say God took pity on me, and maybe a few thousand others. He spoke the word and instantly, we would all have five million dollar bank accounts. That would not only be counterfeit in mass, but it could be very damaging to our economy.

That money represents work, skill and knowledge. When it is just given to me, it short circuits the system. It can and would likely negatively effect our economy. Suddenly, there would be millions more money in circulation and hence, each dollar would be worth less. Therefore, God would be improperly taking the representation of the work of thousands and giving it to me. I would benefit from the work of others wrongfully, as would the others.

So now, the government, in all its wisdom has decided it is okay to redistribute wealth. I get to benefit from the sweat of your brow and you get to benefit from the sweat of mine. Never mind the product of our work. Never mind my laziness. All those who have worked so hard to build those apartments. Never mind them. Let them go into debt while those who refuse to work live in the fruits of the work of their landlords.

God does not redistribute wealth because he knows it is not right. Why should the government know better.

Communism is a relatively new economic system. Capitalism is as old as trading. I will give you so many of these if you give me so many of that. I will help you build your home if you will provide food and clothing for me. If you provide me a boat, I will provide fish for you.

The coinage only made it all simpler. At first it had no government backing. However, over time, only the governments coined the money. At least that is the way it was supposed to work. Then they started taxing to pay for mutual defense and roads and such. Now it has gotten into a tangled mess, but it works the same.

The problem is that that there are a number of things that throw things out of kilter. There is, of course robbery. As mentioned a fore, counterfeiting. Then there is gambling and lotteries. In the blink of an eye, gambling can transfer the equivalent of large amounts of work from one to another. Such things throw the capitalists system out of kilter.

The man that loses all his wages cannot pay his rent. The gambling sites draw crowds of unsavory types. And then of course, those that own the “house” live on the fruits of the labor of others without adding one thing to society. Indeed, they become the “rich men” as sung of in the above song.

The work they do is a counterfeit work. But they are not alone. Those in government know how to counterfeit their contributions to society too. They tax some while they give to others… all the time skimming some off for themselves. It is the most important reason to keep government small. It is one of the most important reasons to limit the power of government. It is the biggest reason FOCs get involved in government.

It is one of the biggest reasons that governments fail.

A Suspect Property

I am not currently in the market for any property. However, I do have a little advice for those who are. If the house has a basement and the real estate agent tells you there is no need to look at it, be suspicious. Demand to see the basement! You might also want to look in the attic as well, no matter how much they object. Indeed, the more they object, the more suspicious you should be. To be sure if you buy any house without looking in all the nooks and crannies, you deserve any and all the problems you get from not inspecting them.

The above is casual to the most obvious observer. It is one of the simplest rules in buying property, or for that matter cars, boats, planes, etc.

Yet, the FOCs have been repeating over and over, “No need for to check for voting fraud. Everyone knows there is no fraud to see here.” Where are the suspicions? Why are people not demanding to see the evidence, even though it is obvious that many have disobeyed the law, fraud or not.

The hints are starting that Pennsylvania is thinking about doing an audit. Suddenly, Biden hops on Air Force One and says, “Nothing to see here folks let’s just move along. Besides, it is bad statesmanship to not accept the results of an election.”

I saw a Pennsylvania state representative say that after deciding to have a look at the Arizona audit, his phone virtually exploded with calls telling him not to do it. “Your wasting your time. There is nothing to see down there and so forth.” I guess that representative was supposed tell that pilot to turn that plane around. He made a mistake. He should have never boarded the plane.

Question: Why all the protesting if there is no fraud. If there is none, none will be found and the republicans, like me, will all just have red faces covered in egg. On the other hand, if there is fraud found, then what happens? What do we do? We can’t tell the current occupant of The White House to pack his bags and leave. May I remind one and all, we would be plowing into new territory. The Constitution and the law does not cover it. Yet we would, for the first time, be able to say for a fact that we have an illegitimate man in the oval office. (You notice that I did not use the term president because, in a way, he would not be president.)

If you go by natural law, Biden would go to prison. It doesn’t matter though. He never knows where he is anyway. It’s all those hangers on that are taking advantage of him that I’m concerned about.

May I remind one and all, Mrs. Clinton has not accepted the results of the 2016 election to this day. Gore is still smarting because he could not get the Supreme Court to accept his growing voter fraud…remember the chads. What’s her name, the woman that lost the governor’s race in Georgia. She still does not accept her loss.

I get it. Only the FOCs get to contest elections. If a person has an R after his name, sorry, not permitted. Not allowed. It is not the statesman thing to do.

To some degree, I do agree. Gore, Clinton and what’s her name from Georgia do not have much statesman ship. However, they sure know how to cheat.

By the way, speaking of things to hide, why isn’t Fauci in prison? Why is it that he gets away with financing a pandemic without answering for it.

Just Who is it that’s Racist?

Sometimes, people have problems with definitions.  Sometimes folks like to redefine words to suit their purposes.  If things keep going the way they are, the dems will have the entire dictionary rewritten before the beginning of the next decade.

First off, we are no longer permitted to use the term illegal alien, even though that is the legal term.  They might not be documented, but they are definitely illegal if they enter the country illegally.

Now, it would seem that something is bipartisan if they can perform a survey and find one republican in favor of one of their harebrained ideas.

Over the last few years, they have found a favorite term, racism.  Indeed, they have found it and a few other words you might find in your thesaurus.  They throw the words around to the point that the words have become meaningless.  On the other hand, they just might mean anything.

Therefore, for those interested, let me provide some proper examples.

  1. Certainly, Hitler was racist.  The fact is; though, that Stalin killed at least as many Jews and his name is rarely brought up.  After all, to the communist, Stalin is a hero.  Indeed, the Russians were racist toward the Jews long before Hitler arrived on the scene.
  2. An obscure woman by the name of Margaret Sanger was in favor of aborting all black babies.  If you look up the word infanticide, you just might find a picture of the woman.  She was the one who established Family Planning for the sole purpose of ridding the world of “the inferior black race.”  Today, they deny such ideas but they locate 70% of their clinics inside predominately Black neighborhoods.  I don’t think that is by accident.
  3. Anyone who uses people of other races as pawns is clearly a racist.  To them, people are simply objects to be used and cast aside until they are needed again.  This is a good description of the dems.  They not only use and abuse African Americans but also Hispanic and Latinos.  I assure you.  If it did not suit their purposes to leave the boarder open, they wouldn’t.
    Because they want the votes, and because they believe that the Hispanics and Latinos will vote democrat, they have no hesitation using them as pawns.  The fact that some die on the way does not in the least bother them.  The fact that most of the women are raped on the way is no concern of theirs.  The millions that go to work in sweat shops and brothels do not even register on their empathy meter.
  4. The worst of all, every time they don’t like someone for anything, they call him a racist.  That dilutes the word.  It changes the meaning.  It makes it so the true racist is ignored.
  5. And now, even now, people are making every attempt they know how to eliminate the Jewish homeland and the Jews are being painted as the guilty party.  The Jews are called racist and a few other names I’d just as soon not repeat.

Just maybe this would be a good time for the African Americans, the Latinos and the Hispanics to open their eyes and see that they are being used as pawns.  I assure you, if and when the dems do away with The Constitution, they will no longer have any need for minorities and then it will be too late.  They will secure their power and establish something that looks very much like Venezuela.  Then, they will complete the border wall and use it to ensure that no one leaves.

Trump Honest?

President Trump was and is honest, especially in his finances while president. How do I know? He is worth about 1.2 billion less than when he took office. Had he been dishonest as 3/4 of the senators and representatives, he would have gained far more, even if he only took his salary.

On the other hand, both of the Clintons made their millions while in or after office while taking advantage of their office. No one would have given either of them a dime had they never held office. To the best of my knowledge, they never made a dime with the sweat off their brow or the blisters on their hands. It would seem, they made their fortune by the money given them or their charity organization. I can’t swear to it, but I strongly suspect the Clintons also broke a few rules along the way. Then again, that’s okay. They don’t have to follow the rules as we regular folks do. They have a D after their name.

Acquitted… again

Let’s see.

First it was Russia, Russia, Russia. Not only acquitted but proved innocent!

Then there was the first impeachment, along with a few other smaller things along the way. Acquitted!

Then a second impeachment, this without an ounce of real evidence. Effectively tried in a kangaroo court with the dems setting all the rules. Even with the deck stacked against him, Acquitted…again!!

Will they ever get the hint? Can they ever figure it out. They have been trying to railroad him since he started running for president. Someone needs to tell the dems that it is much easier to convict a guilty person, that is, unless they have a D after his name. Democrats have no concerns, like Mr and Mrs Clinton and their Clinton Foundation, the one that made the Clintons millionaires. (The Clintons say they were poor when the left the White House. Where did all those comes come from?) Of course, Biden and his bunch have just followed suit while he puts thousands out of work and destroys the energy industry.

I could provide a list of others, but I believe I have established my pattern.

The Smartest People in the World

You ever notice how the democrats claim to be so smart, indeed they claim to be the smartest people in the world. They want to run your lives because you lack the ability to make basic decisions.

Then, when you catch them with the goods, when you catch them with their hand in the till, when you catch them breaking the law, then they plead the Sgt Schultz defense…”I know nothing.” “I don’t recall.” “I didn’t know.” “You mean my son is a crook?”

Concerning the voter frauds. Biden asks, “What fraud? I don’t see any fraud. I won that election fair and square.” The truth he knows better. After all, he is one of the smartest men in the world. If he can’t figure it out, actually he’s pretty dumb. Over half the country figured it out. If he doesn’t know, that would put him in the lowest fifty-percentile in the country.

Of course if you find any of them next to a dead body, it is slightly different. They suddenly become blind. “What dead body. I don’t see a dead body. Do you see a dead body? I can’t imagine how that got there.”

Some may say they are not responsible for any deaths. To those, I suggest you get your vision checked. Obama let over a million die. Ms. Clinton let at least four die, I would suspect more. The governor of New York State let thousands die in nursing homes. Not one of them will own up to it. Not one of them feels the least of a twinge of guilt. Instead, they ask, “What dead bodies? Does anyone see any dead bodies?”

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.

A Little Cough

I couldn’t believe my eyes. They showed it on TV. I backed it up to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. Then, I backed it up one more time.

Sure enough, I saw a man making a speech. He paused and lowered his mask and coughed into his hand. Then he replaced the mask and rubbed his nose a couple of times.

Who could this virus spreader be? He is none other than Joe Bidden, the man who says to do as the scientists tell us to do.

The above may or may not be well known. It is possible you might be able to find the video should you Google it. I don’t know. I don’t care.

What I would like to do is imagine what his wife told him after she found out about it. Very likely she said something like, “Honestly! Joseph Bidden, I can’t I take you anywhere without you embarrassing me, can I?”

I don’t know if that was what she said but it sort of sounds logical.

One more little note:

Obama got into politics and got rich.

Joe Bidden got into politics and got rich.

President Trump got rich and then got into politics.

Why do they keep trying to say President Trump became president to get rich? I don’t understand that.

Oh, by the way. Presidents Reagan and both of the Bushes had quite a fortune before becoming president. I’m sure both Bushes took pay cuts when they went into The White House.
