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.

Crying & Yelling

According to spokesmen within the Biden administration, there are 200 – 300 Americans left in Afghanistan. As near as I can tell by news reports, there are at least 700. As far as anyone knows, it might be a thousand or more. If we had super-hearing, I am sure we would hear them all crying and yelling for help… while Biden celebrates the nearly perfect withdrawal.

I guess he is counting on none of us having super-hearing. He certainly would not want anyone to know. It would look bad on his resume. You notice Kamala is treating hims as if he is radio active. Even some of the FOCs are starting to put some distance between them and ole Joe.

Diplomacy

It would seem that Biden thinks he can bring back all of the American citizens in Afghanistan Let’s hope he succeeds before the Taliban starts using them for bargaining chips. The bad thing is, Joe has no bargaining chips.

Let me explain. If I should meet a man in a dark alley that is a foot taller than me who outweighs me by 50 pounds and knows Kung Fu, I might try diplomacy. I might try my powers of persuasion on the man. However, if I have a nine millimeter in the holster in the small of my back, my methods of diplomacy just might be simpler and more fruitful. More important, I just might be able to walk away from the incident.

The problem with Biden is that he does not seem to understand this method of diplomacy. He seems to think that if he says please, the will graciously concede. Maybe he figures if he gets down on his knees and pleads, they will turn all of them over.

To be sure, Biden does have many deadly weapons that he can use. The hitch is, now they do not believe he will use them until he uses them.

It is as I said in a previous post, the more the opponent fears you, the less likely it is that you will have to fight…the less likely it is that the enemy will suffer loss… the less likely Biden would lose one American life.

It is too late to try to bluff. Any bluff that Biden would try would likely be called, which means lives will likely be lost on both sides. It is why it was called a deterrent.

Let’s face it, it would do me little good for me to pull out the nine-milometer gun on my attacker if I won’t use it and my foe comes at me with flying hands and feet. To be sure, if President Eisenhower decided he would not respond to a nuclear attack, then all the missiles in all the world likely would not have stopped the Soviets from launching an attack and we would all be speaking Russian now, those of us that were left.

Biden Logic

An AR15 semi-automatic rifle in the hands of a law abiding citizen is a fearful thing.

On the other hand, M16 fully automatic rifles in the hands of terrorists are not big thing. Oh, and by the way, let’s make sure we throw in a few M-79 grenade launchers.

They say that the terrorists are in Afghanistan. They pose no threat to the US public. But just to make sure, he wants to leave the Mexican border open to let them in.

I suspect the Taliban are even having a hard time figuring that one out. None the less, I’m sure they have the desire to take advantage of it. If the do, Biden need not concern himself with whether or not to desire. Even the democrat house will impeach him and it won’t take long.

There is no since building up any hope. All those in line for the presidency are dems. I know. I looked it up… all the way to the 18th successor.

Incompetence? Motive? Both?

As I think over Biden’s recent decisions, certain facts have come to mind. While he does appear to be incompetent, I am beginning to wonder if there might be a motive involved, that is, beyond the standard democrat ones.

Let us face it. Virtually all his decisions benefit the Chinese. Could it be that the Chinese are the great puppet masters? To be sure, they paid untold millions to Biden’s son, and hence to Biden. Not only that, apparently, they took part in the rigging of the election. To be sure, they were the ones who communicated with the voting machines.

It is obvious that Biden owes the Chi-coms big time. That would mean that Biden is a traitor: perhaps by intention, perhaps by blackmail. So, is Biden incompetent or a turncoat. It is difficult for me to determine for certain. Then again, he might be hiding his lack of loyalty behind his incompetence. Or maybe the Chinese are concealing their control behind his incompetence.

Regardless, it is a question that should never need to be asked. It is a matter which only comes to mind because of his cozy dealings with the Chinese and the utter disastrous decisions he is making.

Either way, he boldly feels he is safe in whatever he does. He always has the media to protect him. Hence, the media must take responsibility for his huge foul-ups. They helped put him in office and they provide cover for him every day that he holds office. This prompts the question, is the media in league with the Chi-coms?

The founders gave freedom to the press to protect us from the government. Now who protects us from the media. The founders never contemplated such all out sedition by the media.

The Doctor Will See You Now?

While I was in the Marines, I did not need to concern myself with the cost of medicine. Uncle Sam paid for it. That meant, if I could see a doctor, I was treated well. It also meant that if I had the flu, I worked sick.

The alternative was to wait three hours to be seen. Most of time, I would see a corpsman, not a doctor. He would give me a bottle of aspirins and give me light duty for 24 hours, which meant I went back to work. I learned the pattern early and didn’t bother trying to see a doctor anymore.

The hitch was that without the light duty authorization, they could make me do some heavy work. Actually, they did that anyway.

It is, sort of, a picture of communism. Everyone gets paid the same and everyone has to do the same amount of work. Unless I was falling down sick, I did as much as everyone else. Also, they had someone with a few stripes making sure I did it.

Once I became a civilian, if was sick, I called in. I was able to do that eight times a year. Mostly, I only used two or three sick days a year. When I worked for a bank, I worked 3 1/2 years straight. Didn’t miss a day. Still, if I got sick, I could take a few days off without getting an excuse from the doctor.

More important, If I felt bad enough, I could actually see a doctor, usually in an hour or two. Nowadays, I do have to wait some, but I still see a real doctor. When I was having chest pains, there was no wait at all.

The real problems with the military medical system started after I got married. I had a four year old that was having problems breathing at night. I did get him in to see a doctor twice. Both times he was diagnosed with tonsillitis. He prescribed some meds and sent him home both times.

The worst part was that the symptoms always got worse at night. If getting into see a doctor was difficult during the day, it was ten times worse at night. Actually, to some degree that is true with civilian doctors too. There seems to be an unwritten law somewhere that if you’re going to get sick, do it between 8 am and 5 pm, Mon through Fri. Fridays are frowned on too.

It was only after taking my son to a private doctor I found out that he nearly died from lack of air. He removed the tonsils and he hardly had another sick day in his life. Bear in mind that I was a Sgt at the time (E5). I cannot imagine what privates and PFCs go through. They can’t afford to go to a private doctor. On the other hand, I cannot imagine a general ever having to wait a minute for a doctor. Indeed, sometimes, I suspect the doctor goes to him.

It is sort of the way it is with social medicine. Most cannot go to private doctors. There are none. Under socialism, the state pays for the doctors. If you want to see a private doctor, you would have to go to another country. It is exactly what the Canadians have been doing for years. When their socialistic system is inadequate, they just visited doctors in the US. Going to a private doctor in Canada is not allowed.

However, if you happen to be one of the members of the Canadian government, your chances of having to wait for bypass surgery are inversely proportional to your position.

I am not saying that private medicine is perfect. It is far from it. But it is better than free medical. Take it from one who has seen it first hand. By the way, when we went on Obama care, it was far worse than private medical for me. I was paying a grand a year for my wife for five years and she only used it once. That is even worse than what I had in the Marines. It was not only bad medical but I had to pay for it too.

By the way, they only thing they can do to make Obama care worse is to put Fauci in charge of it.

If Only

If only the dems could manage foreign policy as well as they can rig elections.

(Wish I could say I thought of it myself. I heard someone quote President Trump.)

Let me add my personal remark. Maybe it would be nice if they could manage the border, improve our schools, control crime, or run an economy. Trump’s remarks make me wonder how they managed to rig the election without anyone knowing it.

Wait a minute. Everyone does know it. The dems just refuse to admit it and the media jumps on anyone who brings it up with both feet. It is the worst kept secret in history.

One Less Planner

I must give Biden credit where it is due. If we keep killing planners, they will have some difficulty finding planners. It is sort of the way it works.

I know there are some that say it is a small thing. One missile, one Isis killer. I must admit it seems like a small trade. Yet, which Isis killer is a factor. The planner is likely the equivalent of ten Isis soldiers.

The point is, I get on Biden’s case when he creates a mess. I need to give him an ataboy when he gets it right.
