The Truth About Government

If I may, I would like to make a statement based on something I heard Dr. J. Vernon McGee made one time.

The best government in the hands of bad people is horrid.  Even, it will tend to get worse.

The worst government in the hands of good, God-fearing people will tend to be good.  Moreover, it will tend to get better.

Keeping this in mind, is it better to put the control of the government in the hands of people who want to destroy our government as we know it.  After all, even Obama promised hope and change.  I didn’t see much hope but I saw a lot of change… all in the wrong direction.  Do we really want to repeat that mistake and put the country of communists or are we going to learn from the last mistake?

The Error of Reagan

Way back when, I am not sure of the date, President Reagan made an error.  It was one of his few.  He agreed that they would grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens under the agreement that the border would be secured.

Guess what.  President Reagan came through with his part of the agreement.  The dummycrats didn’t.  The border was not seured and it has not been secured to this day.

Not only was it an error but it has become a pattern.  It is similar to Charlie Brown, Lucy, and the football.  For anyone unaware, Lucy promises to hold the football while for Charlie while he kicks it.  Without fail, she moves the football right before he kicks it.  Poor Charlie never learns.  Every time, he misses the ball and ends up flat on his back.

I would hope that we don’t repeat the error of Reagan again.  If we do, maybe the Republicans are more foolish than Charlie.  Then again, maybe it is willing, or more accurately, designed foolishness.  Maybe they don’t really want THE WALL and they just want to hide behind the dummycrats.  Still, I wonder.  Do they really prefer to look so dumb?

I am beginning to think the only way that President Trump will build any kind of barrier is to declare an emergency.  If he does, he may as well do it right and build it coast to coast.  I mean, if he is going to be in for a penny, he may as well be in for a dollar.  More important, the dummycrats just might learn an important lesson, or maybe two.  For that matter, the rinos might learn a thing or two.

Then again, I doubt it.  I think that is just a little too much to hope for.  The dummycrats don’t want the wall so that they can gain power.  The rinos don’t want it because they want cheap labor.  Neither one cares a thing about the loss of life on both sides of the border and I don’t think they ever will.

Dummycrats and Lobbyists

When I first moved to my current home about 40 years ago, the four of us went to a nice place a few miles away.  After we spent the day there, we went to a drive-in restaurant.  My older son put away a foot-long chili dog and a 1/4 pound hamburger, not to mention the fries.  I would guess it would attest to a hard day at play.

Then, of course, we headed home, or at least I thought we did.  The area was sparsely populated and I was not familiar with it.  However, after about fifteen minutes, I started thinking I did something wrong.

I stepped out of the car and realized the sun was behind me.  Up to this point, I was convinced that I was going west.  Wow!  Was that a rude awakening?  The worst part was that I was low on gas and had no idea which way to go to the nearest gas station.  Fortunately, I made the right decision and went north where I found a station in a few miles.  Finally, we actually did head home, west.

I made a mistake, one that I seldom make.  I went the wrong way.  I guess I am not alone.  I heard about a pilot who thought he was going west and flew east to Ireland.  Most suspect that he did it on purpose in order to get around some kind ruling by the government.  There was also a football player who actually ran toward the wrong goal line.  Now that has to be embarrassing.  No one wants to score for the other team, especially in front of thousands of fans.

To be sure, it is sometimes a good thing to stop and take our bearings.  Sometimes, no matter how sure we are, we just might be going the wrong direction.  Certainly, no matter how convinced we are that we are going the wrong direction, we just might be headed toward disaster.  Had I not stopped and checked, I would have run out of gas.  There is no telling how long how long I would have had to wait for help.

If someone takes off from San Francisco in a little Cessna and goes west, he will not ever reach Reno no matter how convinced he is that he is going east.  It might not hurt to look down and see what is below him.  If the weather doesn’t permit, maybe he can use his VOR or maybe his GPS.  If he is convinced all the instruments are wrong, he is going to be in trouble.  That little plane is going to run out of gas before reaching land.

One thing I have personally noticed is that any time dummycrats and lobbyists get together, the Dummycrats will invariably end up going the wrong way.  During their recent little stay in Porto Rico, I understand that there were more than 4 lobbyists for each dummycrat.  Now that is a recipe for disaster.  Nothing good can come from such a thing.  Invariably, the Dummycrats will end up going the wrong direction and the lobbyist will do all they know to convince them they are going the right way.  Moreover, by the time the dummycrats figure it out, there might not be any gas stations around.  They just might be surrounded by open seas.

Elizabeth Warren Lied. Then Why Should That Surprise Anyone?

Senator Elizabeth Warren said it used to be that the minimum wage was a livable wage for a woman and her child.  Fact is, it never was.  I suspect that the reason she made the statement is that she never really held down a real job; I did.  My first job paid $1.35 an hour.  I was lucky.  The minimum wage was $1.15.  By the time I managed to start making $1.45 an hour, the minimum wage moved to $1.25.  I’m figured if I wasn’t careful, I would be making minimum wage, even if I never took a pay cut.

The truth is that $1.15 was not enough for one person to survive on, let alone two.  The truth is, if I weren’t still living at home, I wouldn’t have been able to survive on the 1.35.  Over the years, I saw the minimum wage go up over and there is no way that it was ever a livable wage.  It was always intended for someone just entering the labor force.  It gave a kid a chance to get some experience and establish a resume.  Without a college degree, hardly anyone starts out earning much higher.  Sometimes, even people with degrees end up flipping hamburgers for a while, and… they considered themselves lucky to have the job.

Increasing minimum wage should be done carefully.  It can end up hurting the people you want to help.  I have seen it happen.  When the minimum wage went from $1.15 to $1.25, we lost an employee.  I still feel bad for the kid.  He was still in high school and was trying to save some money toward college.  Though I saw just the one lose his job, I’m sure it was not an isolated event.  …and, by the way, we lost a good employee.  He was ambitious and worked hard.

 

Then again, why should it surprise anyone that Senator Warren’s would lie?  She’s a dummycrat.  It’s what they do.  I might suggest that she was just ignorant, but I don’t think so.  She knew what she said wasn’t true, just as she knew she that she wasn’t Native American.

NEVER BELIEVE A DUMMYCRAT!  NEVER!

Double Hazardous

It is clear that the dummycrats have the strategy to embarrass Pres. Trump by preventing his wall.  One aspect they  may have overlooked is the possibility of  terrorism or epidemic.  It would mean political destruction of the dummycrats should either occur.  To the best of my knowledge, no one has brought up the point.  I would think that the dummycrats thought of it, though they are pretty dumb.

Those immigrants who entered Ellis Island were filtered for disease before they were allowed to enter the country.  If they had a communicable disease, they were kept on the island or sent home.

It might seem heartless, but it likely saved many epidemics, possibly pandemics.  We already know that many of those seeking to cross the border have contagious diseases such as TB.  Some of those who crossed the border already have likely had diseases.  It is only a matter of time until one of them causes the death of possibly millions.  Though there is no way to prove it, I suspect that the new disease that mimics polio likely came from one or more of the illegals.

If a major epidemic, one that costs thousands or millions of lives is traced to an illegal, it could mean major disaster to the dummycrats.  It is why I say they are taking a chance that is double dangerous.  Not only would it be a disaster, but it would mean the end of the career of many dummycrats, and a few rinos as well.

Then again, there is the possibility worst of both, biological terrorists.  It is not beyond possibility.  Indeed, I hesitate to write this.  I would hate to give anyone ideas.  Yet, I don’t think the idea is new.  I doubt that I am the first to think of it.

On the other hand, the terrorists might think twice about using such methods.  If they ever succeed, we would seal up our borders no matter the cost.  The borders would be shut tighter than a vault.  Moreover, those who would terrorize know that their friends, the dummycrats, would have no say in the matter.

The tragedy is, the loss of lives that it would be a horrible cost, for the lesson.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Idealism Verses Experience

There are those who get into government with real business or military experience.  Then there are those who bring nothing but their idealism into government and try to use the government to run the nations businesses.  Do I really need to explain which party is which?

By the way, I might mention, most of these idealists never worked a day in their life outsied of politics or volunteer projects.  They don’t really have the slightest idea what makes things work.
