Fear the Power

Unlike most folks, I actually listened to President Trump’s speech, the one that supposedly incited a riot. Sorry folks. It wasn’t there. In fact the opposite is true. He specifically told them to demonstrate peaceably. I have no idea where the media and the dems got the idea that he encouraged them to riot.

Then I thought it over, that is the whole situation. What if President Trump actually told them to riot. What if he told them to go in and tear things up? Conceivably, he might even tell them to set fire and ransack all the offices of the dems. Is it possible that they would have actually done it?

I’m not talking 50 or 60 people. I’m talking tens-of-thousands. The damage would be far greater. The riot would have lasted far longer. The restoration would likely take a decade.

Don’t get me wrong. I would never suggest such a thing and I’m sure the president wouldn’t either. The dems don’t seem to mind a little fire here and there. They would cheer at a few innocent bystanders getting hurt. They might even love the damage that could be done to all a the seats on the floor, that is if it could all be blamed on the president. The president, on the other hand would be horrified at the possibility, no matter who was behind it.

Nonetheless, the dems do seem to think that President Trump has some unseen power. He could just wave his hand say, “Go to it,” and stand back and watch. I don’t know. Maybe he does have such power. Maybe he could call out how bad that they treated him throughout his presidency. Maybe he could tell the crowd just how the election was stolen from them.

If that is true, and bear in mind, it is just a speculation. If it is true that he does have such power, just maybe the dems should have a little more fear for the man. Can you imagine if he decided to go after Pelosi. He’d hardly have to raise his voice and she’d be no more.

All right. I’m getting a little over the edge now. I am getting almost as bad as the dems that like to go around carrying the likeness of the president’s head. I am almost as bad as that actress that suggested blowing up the White House.

Still, you dems who claim the president is so powerful, you just might want to sleep with one eye open. It might not hurt to keep a half dozen armed guards around too. You just might want to fear the power.

Construction/Demolition

Over the last 4 years, under President Trump we went through a great deal of construction. We brought back jobs, especially manufacturing and the world became much more stable. Not only were the minorities part of this, they were the primary beneficiaries.

In the next 4 years we will go through demolition. The dems will try to destroy everything President Trump built. They can’t help it. It is part of their genetic makeup. The problem is that they have decided to destroy anything else “Trump” as well.

Patrick Henry said, “I might not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it, to my death.”

On the other hand Pelosi and her minions have a different attitude. They will defend your rights to say what you want, as long as it agrees with them. If you don’t agree with them, they will do anything they can to shut you down. As far as they are concerned you have no freedom. They would like it very much if you would move out of their country. And of course, if something goes bad wrong, they will find a republican to blame it on.

The democrats believe in freedom for them and them only. For the rest, we must shut our mouths and submit to their rule… to their control… to their tyranny. Do you think you African-Americans will benefit? Forget it. The only time the dems are interested in you is when voting day approaches. Then, after you vote, they will forget you again. As I said, the only ones they want to benefit are themselves. They want the money. They want the control. The totally want the power. Along the way, they would not mind a few accolades, even if they don’t deserve them.

For What Reason?

In general, I think the vast populous knows that there was cheating. The vast percentage of republicans know simply because they kept their eyes open. Being as the dems were doing the cheating, they are well aware of it. Indeed, they are far more aware of it but they simply try to hide it and not to well. Failing at that they try to deny it, this while they still figuratively have their paws in the cookie jar.

I have been thinking on the subject and a question occurred to me. For what reason do they cheat? Clearly, they realize, with their ideas and nominees, they that it is the only way they can win. Clearly, they think winning is really, really important; enough so that they go to great risk. If it gets out of hand, it would cause a scandal from which they would never recover.

There may be other reasons I haven’t considered, but I have come up with two. Possibly they think they are doing it for our good. On the other hand, maybe they are doing it for their good, to enhance their power and riches.

Knowing the nature of the dems, I suspect it is the selfish rather than the altruistic reason. I just can’t imagine them having any concern for the folks, especially when I see them doing things that have led to the death of so many people. It’s sort of like expecting a snake to act like a nice friendly dog. Nice is simply not in their nature, though they do try to act like it is.

In that respect, it means snakes are better than democrats. Snakes have no pretense of being good. You see, they know that the more money that goes through the government, the more they can skim off for themselves.

Laws Without Teeth

When I was much younger, I never thought about it much. As I get older, and hopefully wiser, I started thinking of laws more.

Let’s see. In a little more perfect world, there would be no need to put teeth to lays… not one need to enforce them. Consider a law against robbery without the need of a threat of penalty. All you need is a law against murder and murders would cease. Imagine a world where we could make laws against speeding without the need to enforce them.

It wouldn’t be long before there would be little need for policemen. After all, there job is law enforcement. They and the courts supply the teeth to the law. If everyone just simply obeyed all laws that are passed, think of all the money we would save. The need for lawyers would be drastically reduced if not completely eliminated.

The truth is that a law that is not enforceable has no purpose. Moreover, a law that is not enforced may as well not exist.

Think of all those who have been rioting and calling it demonstrating. Consider the looting and arson. Thousands, maybe tens of thousands are guilty and few were ever arrested. Fewer yet were prosecuted. Over the months, I wonder, just how many ever spent a day in jail. They have all become laws without teeth. The offenders of the law realize it and they are taking full advantage of it. It has rendered the law void, useless. It would seem we have decided to let the lawless get away with anything while those obeying the law suffer.

However, it is far more than that. It is against the law to vote in one state while you live in another. They law would seem to have teeth. There are penalties for such things. Yet they are not enforced. So, when people realize they can do it and not suffer the consequences when caught, the law is voided. It is as if it doesn’t exist. Hence the lawless effectively rewrite our laws.

Moreover, some laws are written completely without teeth. You look at the code and there is no punishment designated. So the Pennsylvania secretary of state intentionally disobeys the voting laws and openly admits it. Law enforcement cannot even slap his hand. They are powerless to do a thing, that is, even if they want.

And of course, the Supreme Court sits in their ivory tower and refuses to do nothing. And now… we have become a nation without voting laws. As the man said, “He who counts the ballots wins the election.” And, as I said before, only those who obey the law suffer.

People & Robots

From the time I was ten, I was exposed to computers.  My brother, who designed the things, started exposing me to terms like bits and bytes long before they the public knew of them.  If I remember right, this was about 1958 or 1959.  I was already picking up general electronic terms as well.  I could read the color codes on a resistor almost as well as I could read the regular number system.  I didn’t use little limericks to memorize it either as others did.

One of the first things I learned about computers is that they are dumb.  They know less than nothing.  All their apparent intelligence must be programmed into them.  Even then, all results are completely predictable.  If a computer doesn’t do what it is designed to do, then something is wrong with it.

Let’s look at the most basic special purpose digital computer, the calculator.  Hopefully, every time you add the same two numbers, it should come up with the exact same result.  It is predictable.  If you get a different result, it is broke.  It is useless.  You might as well toss it because it is unusable.

We humans, on the other hand, are, at least to some degree, unpredictable.  You put ten men in the same situation and it is quite possible to come out with ten different results.

You see, when God made man, he gave us what is called a free will.  That is to say, for the most part, he lets us do what we want to do, though we frequently do what He doesn’t want to do.

He could have stopped Adam and Eve from eating the fruit, but then, Adam would not have had a free will.  And God wanted us all to have a free will.

To be sure, ultimately, God’s will is always accomplished.  At times, a man wants to do something that is completely against God’s will.  For instance, when God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, Jonah decided to go anywhere but Nineveh.  It was a direct collision of Jonah’s will with God’s and God decided His will would prevail.

Even at that, God didn’t just treat him like a robot.  Jonah was still able to rebel.  It was only by circumstances that He drove Jonah back to Nineveh, this even though Jonah would have preferred death to going to Nineveh.  Jonah still had the ability to exercise his free will, though without much success.

In the end, God accomplished at least two things.  First, the entirety of Nineveh repented from their evil and turned to God.  Second, He taught Jonah a few important lessons.  I don’t know.  Maybe He accomplished a few other things.  He can do things like that.  Certainly, the book of Jonah, to this day has a few lessons for us all.

Even so, I have come upon passages I simply don’t understand.  Such is the 15th chapter of Deuteronomy.  First time I read that, I was very perplexed.  In it, God instructs the master to give the slave a chance for freedom.  If the slave chooses to remain a slave to the master, the master is to punch a hole in the ear and put a ring in it.

  1. It does seem odd to me that any man should want to remain a slave.
  2. It seemed odd to me that God would sanction such a thing.
  3. Why should there even be a need for such a law?

Over time, my eyes were opened.  I found, oddly, there are people who like to be told what to do.  They like a world where they don’t have to make decisions.  I guess, to a small degree, I am in this category.  I don’t much care for being the leader.  I would much rather someone else make the decisions and I just do what I’m told.  However, sometimes I do get a little rebellious, or more likely, lazy.

It is common for us followers to get the idea that we would make a much better leader.  Yet, when put in the position of leading, we fail.

Now, what makes me bring this up?  I heard a statement made by a member of the Chinese Communist leadership that sort of opened my eyes the other day.  He said that in China, we follow orders.  You in the US do what you want.

So.  I guess that is what the socialists want us to do.  They want us to stop making decisions and just follow orders.  What we are to do, say and think should be all determined by the leadership, regardless of how inept that leadership is.  I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a recipe for disaster.  The primary problem is that leaders seldom have the good of everyone in mind.  They always get the best of everything, shelter, transportation, medical and food.  When two men need a liver transplant and one is in the leadership, guess who gets the liver.  The same goes for every other aspect of life.

This is the way it was in the USSR and they went bankrupt.  This is the way it is in China and they would not succeed without steeling all of our ideas.  Socialism discourages free thinking, which is the source of ideas.  Why invent the better mousetrap if you aren’t rewarded for it?

Nonetheless, let me go back to my three bullet points.  The answer to the first question is simple.  Some men don’t want to be free.  They like the idea of security being provided by the master, or in this case the state.  It is an easy life, to do what you are told and to think what you are told to think.  Some men prefer the easy life to freedom, even to the point that some ever prefer living in prison where everything is taken care of for them.

God sanctioned the practice for that reason.  It gave some men an out to taking care of themselves.  Also, oddly, to some degree, it kept them from choosing to be criminals.  Moreover, in that day, it seemed that there were strong voluntary bonds of friendship to be formed between slave and master.

When Abraham chose a servant to choose a wife for his son, the man could have just as easily left.  Apparently, Abraham trusted his servant and the servant loved his master.  Yet, the servant was wise in the way he chose the wife.  (By the way, God also provided some guidance.)

Third point, the law permitted the slave a choice.  If he wanted his freedom, the master had no recourse but to set him free.  No one could force him to stay with the master.

Today, in the US we don’t have such laws.  We no longer have slaves.  It does make me wonder, though just a little.  Just how things would have been in the days before the Civil War had the South been forced to conform to the aforementioned law.  I’m going to let you come to your own conclusions but I’m sure things would have been a lot different.

Today, we don’t have masters and servants.  We have employers and employees.  An employee is free to leave at any time.  An employer, within limits is permitted to dismiss an employee for cause.  The system seems to work well.  It would appear that the socialists don’t like the system.

I suppose many might suggest all sorts of reasons they don’t like it.  The out and out truth is simple.  It chips away at their effort for gaining power.  And power is their goal, no matter whose toes they step on, no matter who they have to climb over to get to the top.  Then when they get there they are the worst leaders.

It is a fact that the socialists are very good at spending money, not so much in making it.  Every blue state is falling apart financially.  At first it was slow.  Now it is rapid.  California seems to have lost one representative, perhaps the first time in recent history.  New York might lose two.  Texas and Florida will each picking up one.  Unless there is a change leadership, by the next census, California and New York may well lose a forth or more of their representatives.

The horrible thing is, the leaders of New York and California are expecting the people from Texas and Florida to bail them out and that is not right.  I say, let them fail and learn the lesson of socialism as did the USSR.

God did not make us robots.  He does not control us like robots but the socialists would just love to control us all.  They want us to shut up and take orders.  They want our brains to function like computers.  They demand we respect them while they don’t deserve the respect of a dog.

The Perfect Husband

There is an old story, which I have heard half a dozen times from various sources. Though it isn’t true, it certainly represents truth in a number of ways. Certainly, I wish I could get a few million to read it, so if you want, please pass it on multiple times.

It is said that a woman spends years seeking out the perfect husband. When she finds and marrys him, the first thing she does is start changing him. Then, after a few years, she complains that he is no longer the man she married.

To be sure, the story does have direct application, though it is not always true. Some women are unable to change their husbands. A few women are smart enough to be happy with the husband they have. Then there are a few women who are never happy, no matter how perfect the husband is.

Okay. I am having a little fun. There is no such thing as a perfect husband. Still, there are some a lot closer than others.

The point is this. I would hope that after the dems go running into the perfect states (Texas, Tennessee, Florida, etc.) they won’t start trying to change them. The truth is that California used to be a near perfect state. I know. I lived there. It voted Reagan to governor twice. It used to have the best education system in the states.

They did have a few flaws. They voted moonbeam into the governorship twice. I have no idea how that happened. All those folks rushing in from other states and from south of the border have destroyed it, while trying to make it perfect.

It was the democrats that did it for the purpose of taking power. It used to be that people were rushing in. Now they are rushing out. Even the billionaire car maker has fled the state, and he’s a big liberal. Hope he doesn’t start turning Texas blue. We don’t need that. Texas does not need that. and, of course, the country does not need that.

Then again, I guess it doesn’t matter. The dems have perfected their voting methods. They may soon control all three branches of government completely. At that point, they won’t destroy just Texas but the whole country. Then, the ‘wife’ will no longer have the perfect husband, but also she won’t have anywhere to find another.

False Implications

A false implication is another way to say lie or falsehood. It is when a person uses an implication to say that which they know is not exactly true. The democrats have turned it into an art form.

One implication was that they would have never have blocked a vote by a republican president in his last year of office. I’m not gullible enough to swallow that one. Are you? The truth is that, if the situation were reversed they would have done exactly the same thing.

The other implication is that “We the democrats would never appoint and confirm a justice this close to an election.” You believe that one and I have a bridge I’d like to sell you. They believe in doing or saying anything to protect there right to “Choice.”

The truth is that the democrats would have done the same in both situations. There would be one difference. The media would be right there cheering them on. Instead, the media cry out,”Unfair! Unfair!”

I’ll tell you what is unfair, making my wife and me pay those ridiculous insurance prices that Obama Care forced on us. I’ll tell you what unfair is, recalling all our troupes from Iraq exposing over a million people to slaughter.

And by the way, it is also unfair to spy on an incoming president without cause. Truth about that, that’s not just unfair, that is illegal. Whole bunch of democrats ought to go to jail over that, but they never will. You see some people are above the law. All they need is the news media, a bunch of money and a whole lot of conspirators.

A Word About Words

One day I picked up my son from somewhere. I can’t even remember where. Somehow, the subject came around to Smokey the Bear. He corrected me. He said it is now Smokey Bear. It seems someone somewhere decided to change the poor guy’s name and no one even consulted him.

Regardless, Smokey Bear is now his official name. Sorry, I refuse to make the change. The new name doesn’t fit the song. I guess not too many people remember the song. We learned it in school and they encouraged us to be careful with fire. They insisted on fire being nothing to play with.

Now the name is Smokey Bear. They don’t sing the song and I hardly ever see him on TV as I used to. I wonder who decided on that.

When I was in high school, we used the term, employee. Now it is worker. Wonder who made that decision. I never thought of myself as a worker. I considered myself an employee, a man who they payed to work.

Over the years there have been dozens of changes to our vocabulary. So you ask what’s the big difference? Well, if there is no difference, why change it? What purpose is there to it? If I use the old words, why do people look at me as if I have broken the proverbial cardinal rule.

When I use Smokey the Bear in a crowd, two or three people correct me. You try it. You will see what I mean. It is getting to be the same way with the word employee. I have no idea why anyone would get upset with either word but they do.

May I suggest it is part of a conspiracy. Oh, there I go on that conspiracy thing again. Okay. If it isn’t a conspiracy, what is it. Tell me. Why did we change employee to worker. Is it because it is easier to say or spell. More likely it is because it has a slight change in meaning. A worker is not really quite the same as an employee. Smokey Bear is not really quite the same as Smokey the Bear.

More than that, it is control. They are saying, “See what I did. I have changed your vocabulary and there is nothing you can do about it.” Nowadays, it is the little words. Eventually, they will start changing other words in far more meaningful ways.

You see, once they can change the meaning of words, they can start controlling what we think. Guess what. It works. Look at what they are now turning out of our colleges. Look at how they can twist words, in some cases to mean the opposite of what they used to.

Today, it is not a lie unless it impedes progress, as they see it. The indoctrination has become so strong that some people use it to pass lie detector test. I mean, if it is not a lie, why should I feel guilty. Hence the machine records no reaction.

So, nowadays, the democrats, straight-faced look at us and lie. They convince us of it because they, themselves are convinced of it.

Fifty years ago, abortion was regarded as killing. Now, it is just abortion. Some even call it birth control. It is all a matter of vocabulary. Yet the truth is, two healthy people go into an abortion clinic; only one comes out alive.

The mere choice of the word clinic is a bad choice of words. Just what do you call a place where innocent children are killed. I don’t know, but it is certainly not a clinic. A clinic is somewhere where people go to get well. It is a place to be treated for illness. Pregnancy is not an illness. Abortion is not a procedure. Let’s call it what it really is, murder. People use the euphemism so that they can feel better, but the little change in vocabulary does not change the reality.

Just a little aside about Planned Parenthood. It was started by a woman, Margret Sanger, who wanted to rid the world of African-Americans, only she didn’t call them African-Americans. Here’s the news, it is still the primary mission of their so-called clinics. 80% of the clinics are in Black neighborhoods. And you think the democrats have your well-being in mind. They support Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood, wants to extinguish Blacks. Hence, I can only assume the democrats want to extinguish Blacks.

If there is a hole in my logic, please tell me. Just why is it that they hide behind the euphemisms? Why do they put so many clinics in Black neighborhoods? Why do they want to keep the African-American population in the least successful schools?

I can’t think of another reason. Can you?

President Trump is trying to put, at least some African-Americans in good schools. And they call him prejudice. The democrats want to keep African-American out of the good schools. And they say they are fighting for them.

Prejudices or not, wouldn’t it be a good idea to elect the one trying to put the Black kids in the best schools?

Methods of Control, 1

I don’t know how many are aware of it, but during the days before the Civil War, teaching an African American how to read and write was against the law throughout the south.  When I was a young man, it was common knowledge.  The way they teach history these days, it might not be so well known.

The reason was quite simple.  If a man knows how to read and write, it is more difficult to control him.  To extend the concept, by controlling education they can control people.

It was also the way that the Catholic Church controlled most of the people of Europe.  From the time Rome fell until the invention of the printing press, those who ran the church claimed that it was wrong for the common man to read the Bible.  It was to be done only by the clergy and then they would teach the people.

After the printing press, common people started reading the Bible.  Almost immediately, the people discovered that there was no mention of purgatory in the Bible; it was made up.  Also, they realized it wasn’t the only lie of the Catholic leadership.

I could almost write a book on this subject, alone but that is not my purpose here.  The point is, those in the leadership of the church were intentionally leading the common people astray for power and gold.  Give us your money and we will pray your parents and grandparents out of purgatory.  It worked.  It didn’t help the relatives but it made the church rich.  If you doubt me, have a look at some of those cathedrals in Europe.

With this in mind, consider why the democrats refuse allow school choice.  It is their method limiting the education of the masses, especially the African-American populace.  The rich go to good schools while the rest make do with the public school system.

In spite of the fact that American schools are the most greatly financed, the students of those schools rate 20 in worldwide standings.

Let’s change things, especially for the Black populace.  Why not, for a few years anyway, pay to put 5% poor African-American students into private schools and look at the results.  Then again, maybe the democrats would not like to see the results.  It would expose the public schools for what they are, a method to maintain their control over the people, especially the African-Americans.
