Questions for the FOCs

If there are so many that want the 4T bill, why do they have to do so much arm twisting to get it passed?

If there was no cheating on the election, why do they want to bury all the evidence? Why is it they don’t want the forensic experts to see it? Could it be that they know that it was not on the up and up?

Why is it that Biden doesn’t answer questions?

If they did such a good job in Afghanistan, why is it that they no longer want to talk about it? Seems to me, if they did so well, they would want to brag about it. Oh. Wait a minute. They did and that did not go over well.

Now let me see. Just why is it again that we need to spend 4.5 trillion dollars? Just who is it that has read the bill? Actually, at this point, I don’t even think it is done. Surely they will compete it before they pass it.

Just why is it that Kamala likes to laugh so hard at serious questions?

Just why is it that we need to build recharging stations all over the US. If we do and no one buys the electric cars, who will use them? Who will maintain them? For that matter, who is going to make money off them? Could it be the friends of the FOCs?

I’m sure you can think of a few questions I haven’t. However, the biggest question of all, how are we going to get them to answer any question? It is sort of like the FOCs. They never like answering questions, especially those that probe real problems. ?

Blatant Lies

As a person, I actually like Jen Psaki. The problem is that she has a problem with the truth. She was asked why the people coming across the border do not need a vaccine shot was because they were only going to be here a while.

This falls into the category of a blatant lie. Indeed it is what I call a two way lie. First, it makes no difference how long they are here. If they are north of the border for five minutes, they can spread the virus… among the other illegal aliens if nothing else. Secondly, they will, in all probability stay north of the border and she knows it. The man she represents has made sure of it. She is insulting our intelligence by saying anything else.

It is not a lie as the result of knowledge. She knows it. We know it. And she knows that we know it. That is why it is blatant by definition. She is not even trying to deceive us. Deceit requires an element of truth.

I guess you can’t blame the poor woman. Look who she is representing. Still, it might be a good idea for her to start looking for a new job. I don’t think the one she has will last all that much longer. Moreover, not many will want to hire a woman who is known for telling blatant lies.

Rising Sea Levels

Some like to blame rising sea levels on global warming. The fact is, there are at least 6 reasons the sea is rising that have nothing to do with global warming. Consider there are roughly 3 tons of dust that comes to this planet from space daily. That is over 1000 tons a year. If it is evenly distributed, that is almost 800 tons that goes into the oceans yearly. You add to that the tons of silt that the river wash down from the land, that is a lot. Every particle displaces just a little water.

Considering the size of the oceans, that is not much, but I would suspect it is more than caused by global warming.

Let’s Hear it for the Commodore 64!!

I had a Commodore Vic-20, mostly because I could not afford the Commodore-64. However, I assure you I was well aware of the abilities of the Commodore-64. I believe that, with some modifications, they would make good voting machines.

  1. The operating system was on ROM (Read Only Memory). You turn it off and turn it back on, it came up the same way every time, unless an application cartridge was installed. Mostly, the application was on ROM too. There was simply no way to alter it.
  2. They are inexpensive. In today’s world, they could be produced at about $200 per unit; You’d need to add maybe a C note for the application. The app, written specifically as a voting machine, would be on ROM and would not be alterable.
  3. They are small, about the size of a keyboard, including the keyboard.
  4. They use very little power, not near what the current voting machines do.
  5. They would be easy to set up. Plug them in, install the app cartridge, and turn them on. Okay. There would be a little more to it, but not much. You would need to install a printer and floppy disk.

I will admit to being a little ridiculous but the little machines have some things for us to learn. Before I go on, let me explain, Commodore actually did make serious computers which were used in thousands of businesses and no one ever hacked even one. It can’t be done without opening the case and replacing parts. Also, Radio Shack built the TRS-80, affectionately called trash 80. Thousands of them also found their way into offices. Again, they relied heavily on ROM, which is not alterable.

The thing we can learn from the above is this. All voting machines should run from a special operating system that would be on ROM, not disk. As long as you have the right ROM, your system is in tact. There are some cautions that should be made, such as recording each time the machine is restarted. Also, you would not want a modem within a mile of the thing.

For those who have not figured it out, this is a continuation of the previous post. The one big problem with all the current voting machines is that, when you open them up, they are PCs. also know as personal computers. They all use the same basic parts and they all use the same operating system, Windows XX. It is well known that Widows is easily hacked. Hence, it is easily altered. Then, if the hacker is good enough, he will cover his tracks as if he was never there.

If one and all are going to insist on using the PC based system, let’s not use the Widows OS and let’s put the OS on ROM instead of disk. That way, no one will be able to alter it. To be sure, let’s make sure the systems have no outside connections, period. No modems, no Wi-Fi and no Blue Tooth. Simply, there is no need for it.

To be sure, data does need to be transferred. That should be by CD-ROM and the serial number for the CD should be written down in two places. The CD should be enclosed in a box, sealed and the box should be locked in the presence of two deputy sheriffs. When it is open, it should be opened in the presence of two deputies and the serial number should be verified.

There is, of course, a simple alternative to the above… Paper ballots and hand counting.

And, by the way, a printer should be used to print a copy of all votes, which should be verified by the voter. Then the copy should be put in a sealed box and retained for recounts, spot checks and audits. To be sure, the copy should be on special paper and it should be serialized.

If we do nothing, then our right to vote will only be as the man said, to be determined by those who count them.

To be sure, let me add one more comment. Maybe there was no fraud, but you don’t know that. No one does. By doing the above, we could have much more confidence. By doing the above, we also keep the honest man honest, as they like to say. It removes the temptation to cheat.

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.

To Take or Not to Take… the Vaccine. That is the Question.

I’m going to make this short, which will make at least some of you happy.

Fact, the vaccine is classified experimental. I cannot imagine forcing anyone to take an experimental drug of any kind, especially someone under 18. It has already been established that it does have side effects, especially on younger people. Moreover, the youth stand to be effected over a greater time.

My conclusion, it should be taken only and completely by free will. No one should be forced to take it for any reason, though I can see people in the health industry suggesting it.

Personally, I would feel horrible if I forced someone to take any drug and then that person had a severe reaction. Then again, I’m not most people. The dems don’t care if people have complications. They don’t even care when they die. And they paint themselves as the ones who care. Need I remind you of all those that died in the nursing homes because of the “caring” act of a few democrat governess.

By the way, my wife and I have both been vaccinated. By the way, I do find it appalling that people who share my opinion get censored by big tech. They have no business censoring anyone, certainly on this subject. They likely know little more than me, maybe less. Nonetheless, they should not take away a truly informed consent.

The Ol’ Red, White and Blue

In general, the three colors in the flag have the following meaning.

The white: Purity and innocence

The red: Hardiness and valor

The blue: Vigilance, perseverance and justice

Originally one stripe was added whenever a state was added. Now, for practical reasons, they decided to make it thirteen stripes, one for each of the original colonies. Within the blue field, there is one star for each state. I had the privilege to have lived under a flag with 48 stars, then 49, then 50.

The concept was that Hawaii would add another republican state and Alaska another democrat state, which only goes to show that things don’t always turn out the way you expect. Sometimes I wish I could have bought a few of the flags with 48 stars. They just might be collectors items.

Over the years, more and more, the red has represented the blood that was given by those who gave their lives to protect both the banner and the nation for which it stands.

Now I ask you, what is it about that flag that makes it unworthy of our respect.

Maybe the nation it represents isn’t perfect. Nonetheless, it symbolizes a nation that is constantly striving to be worthy of the standards it represents. And even if you cannot bring yourself to respect the banner, you should at least respect those who died for it… and your right to complain. The vast number of nations since the beginning of recorded history never had that that right, not even the English who answered to a king until a short time before the American Revelation.

So, go ahead. Tell me what nation has provided its modern citizenry much in exchange for so little. Those who were before us paid for our freedom. With that freedom comes responsibilities. If we abuse our freedom, those behind us will not enjoy it.

So. Next time you see the flag, you just might remember what it cost.

Biden Wants to Talk About the Rise in Crime Today

I heard over the news that Biden wants to address the country on the rise in crime and how to decrease it. It is nice to know that he has finally managed the first step, recognizing that the problem exist.

I can help him on how to resolve the problem.

  1. Never mind the guns. Lock up the criminals. It just might amaze him as to how much good this would do. Oddly, it even helps the criminals.
  2. Seal the border. Many criminals are finding their way into our country and committing crimes here. Frequently they bring guns with them. This point is so simple a first grader could figure it out. Also, drugs are a big part of the crime. Stop the drugs from entering the country and the crime will decrease.
  3. Tell his friends, the Chinese to stop importing fentanyl. They provide most of the supply and it is not because they want to do us any favors. It is possible for one nation to take over another with little more than the use of drugs. At the least he is using them to weaken us.

My guess is that Biden will not do any of these things. He will blame it all on President Trump and tell how important it is to control guns.

Consider the following: If all the guns are locked up, the crime will continue. If all the criminals are locked up, the crime will cease or at least greatly decrease.

By the way, speaking of borders, where is Kamala. Obviously, she does not want to be associated with that fiasco she was put in charge of. Obviously, she has done not one thing to improve it. Come to think of it, I think that is the plan.

I’m still waiting for someone to put Fauci in that orange jumpsuit. Actually, I wouldn’t mind if it is yellow. In a way, that is more suitable for the likes of him.

No Room for the Proud

Please note the following from the King James version of the Bible

Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Almost all preachers concentrate on verse 8 and rightfully so. However we should never overlook verse 9. I cannot say exactly what God meant by what he said, but I know His result. Those who think that they will be received in heaven because of what they did or said, will never be accepted. Those that expect that they will, are going to be very disappointed. For if they think they will contribute to their salvation is pride.

Hence, I think I can safely say that the those who are proud will not find room for them in heaven. Maybe that was His purpose, though I cannot say for sure. Yet it does serve the purpose.

I caution you that if you plan on telling God all your good works, He will not be impressed by them or you. You see, you will have had your chance to rely totally on His Son for your salvation and you decided not to. You decided to rely on yourself at least in part; or to follow the false teachings of some so called church whose teachings lead people astray by the millions…and ultimately to hell.

If you try to stand before God your pride, your home is not in heaven. For those of use who bow humbly at the feet of Jesus Christ and accept His gift of salvation, without trying to add anything to it, heaven is already our home. We have been assured of it. It is not bragging on what we did, but what Jesus did.

Of all the sins of man, pride is the one that God hates the most. I suspect it is because it leads us from him and to our own means. So, it is my deduction that, no matter how large heaven is, God will make sure that there will be no room for the proud.

Something a man told me a long time ago is that it is better to be thankful than to be proud. For sure, I have no reason to be proud of the United States, though I do believe it is the greatest nation in modern history. However, I am thankful that God made it so. God did not have to put in Los Angeles, California when I was born, but He did. For that I am grateful. God did not have to put me in a Christian family with really good brothers and sisters, but I am thankful He did. God did not have to send his Son to die on the cross for my sins, but He did, and I am thankful beyond words He did. Moreover, I will not try to add anything to it. If I try, not only will I mess things up, but it would mean that I think His work is incomplete or insufficient, a lack of faith.

God does not make us go to heaven, though He could. He has given us the choice. It is a gift, not a something to be forced upon us. To be sure He pleads with each of us to accept the gift for which He paid so much. However, should you turn it down, it will be your greatest mistake. The pride you insist on holding onto will lead to an eternity of suffering.

Of all the allusions that Satin presented to man, the one that man can earn, or help earn his salvation is the most devastating. The reason it succeeds more often than not is because of the pride of mankind.

Fear

Many of us learn fear from our youth. For some people the fear is not natural. Some people refuse to leave their homes. Others, like me, fear heights. Fortunately, my fear of heights is more-or-less under control. Still, I refuse to go up in those rides where all they do is lift you to great heights. Some, let you rapidly descend and slow you just before you reach the ground.

I guess my fear of heights does have some basis. To be sure, the height won’t cause any harm. In general most people survive the fall. It’s that sudden stop I fear.

Some have great fear of the dark while most of us know that it isn’t the dark that can cause us harm. Now on the other hand, all those treacherous gremlin that hide in the dark….

Most of us, to some degree, fear the IRS. If you don’t believe me, just tell someone that the IRS is going to audit his last five years of returns. I suppose, to some degree, this is a good fear. It keeps most of us honest. On the other hand, the not so honest have more fear than most of us. Sometimes it nags at such people. It is the ol’ “What if” question that comes to mind, at least once or twice a day.

Often times we try to destroy what we fear. Sometimes, this is without reason. Sometimes we have a reason.

Take for instance the dems, the general news media, and especially those who have lied to the public. In general, they fear the truth and as such they try to destroy it.

This speaks well of President Trump. Those that have lied, cheated and stolen, or those who have aided and abetted those who have, have a good reason to fear the former president. He represents the truth. And, if there is one thing these folks have to fear is the truth, or those who speak the truth. It is no wonder there are so many trying to destroy President Trump and those who support him.

If they don’t fear the truth, then why won’t they let him speak? Why did they take him down from all the social sites?

It looks to me as if they are running scared. Because they fear him, they try to destroy him.

Moreover, it is a pattern. Anywhere you see someone trying to destroy the truth, it is a sign that they have something to hide. Remember Ms. Clinton and her E-mails. She feared the truth getting out more than she feared the penalty of the law. Then again, she does have a D after her name. She did know she had a good chance of getting away with it. So she successfully broke the law and hid the truth. As such, we, the public will never know what she hid.
