ACCOMPLISHMENTS

I have heard that we Americans just really don’t appreciate Joe’s accomplishments. Fine. Just maybe someone can tell me one or two things Joe did to make things better for the US or any of her citizens. On the contrary. He has messed up everything he has touched.

Then again, he has helped the Ruskies, the Chicoms and some, not all who illegally crossed our southern border. Oh, yes. Don’t let me overlook all the help Joe provided for the criminals and cartels. Indeed, it’s no help to Mexico that we helped the cartels. The cartels now virtually control all northern Mexico. Ask the Mexicans wha they think of that. You might want to check with those whose tourist businesses have or will go under due to hazardous conditions in the area. Tourism is greatly reduced by the criminal activity, you know. (Does Joe even realize that damage to these folks? I don’t think he cares.)

Accomplishments. What Accomplishments. Does anyone see any Accomplishments.

Oh, yes. He did get Americans out of Afghanistan, well most Americans. He ONLY left a few HUNDRED behind.

Watch Out, Words HAVE MEANINGS

I watched an interview. I will leave the names out. They are not important. The important things are the words. The person being interview said we need to make sure only legal residents should be permitted to vote. Actually, that is incorrect. There are many legal residents that should not be allowed to vote.

First, not all legal residents are citizens and only registered citizens of age should be permitted to vote, and then only in their state and precinct. No one should be permitted to vote outside their precinct. It is sort of the way the founding fathers intended it. We do not need to have Mexicans or Canadians determining the outcome of our elections. Moreover, we do not need people in one county determining the outcome of another county’s election.

Just remember, a resident is not always a citizen. It seems sort of picky but it is so, so important.

A Much Better Compromise

I understand the Minority Leader’s concern for buckling here. There was an awful lot of pressure on those two senators. However, he should not have completely given in here. He should have made it contingent on restoring the border to the way it was under Trump. He should have required the walls to be completed. That would have accomplished something, maybe. It actually would have saved lives. Moreover, it would have exposed Biden’s open borders.

Wait a minute. I don’t think that McConnell would have liked that. If my memory serves me, he was not so much in favor of the wall. There were a few republicans who didn’t like the idea of cutting off the cheap labor.

I guess he could have used the alternative. He could have insisted on continuing the pipelines, drilling and fracking, including New York. This would have helped a lot. It would have helped to bring down the price of oil. It would have put people back to work and it would have made the US energy independent again.

Then again, the FOCs might not like that. They like us dependent on others, especially Russia and China. They might have preferred to let us default. Either that, or the dems would have done the increase in debt by themselves.

At least that would have exposed the FOCs for what they are, a bunch of power hungry characters that would prefer to allow death than to permit energy independence.

Terminology

The FOC folks don’t like us referring to illegal aliens as illegal aliens. Sorry FOC types. That is what they are. It is the way they are defined by law.

Before they step across the border, they are aliens. The instant they cross the border they are illegal aliens. Moreover, they have broken the law. By law they are subject to incarceration. In truth, they should be. In truth, they should then be returned to their own country immediately. That is the way the law says it. As usual, the FOCs only enforce the laws they want to enforce. That is what makes them Friends Of Criminals. In the truest since, the FOCs are criminals too. After all, they are aiding and abetting criminals, and not just illegal aliens. Sometimes they aid and abet legal aliens in breaking the law by encouraging to vote. Then again, they also aid citizens breaking the law as in looting, arson and assault. It is sort of what they do in their effort for power.

By the way, why isn’t Fauci in prison. He has millions of murders to his credit.

The Question NOT Asked

A while ago, Biden answered a question about the border agents riding horses and whipping the illegal aliens. There are but two problems with that. The agents were not whipping the agents as he said they were. More important, that was NOT the question he was asked. The question he was asked was based on something that started long before any videos of horses.

The context of the question included over 18 thousand people taking refuge under a bridge as they suffered and spread disease while he and his cronies sat and watched. It was about letting those diseased people into the country without being tested or immunized for the China virus.

Actually, when you come right down to it, it started even before the election when Biden, during one of his speeches shouted out, the equivalent of y’all come!

Naturally, he did not want to answer to the context of the question. He had no answer that didn’t make him look like just exactly what he is: incompetent. He had no answer that did not reveal he is what he is: sociopath. He had no answer that would not reveal his weakness as a leader. He lacks simple common sense!

None the less, it is a common practice as I wrote in another post. If you watch, you will see it too. When they don’t like the question they are asked, they answer THE QUESTION NOT ASKED!! when they do that sort of thing, it is the primary indication they are FOCs. (Friends Of Criminals)

This part is added as an afterthought, but it is important. If there was a nice big wall, there would not be any need to use horses to heard the illegal aliens. Is it really necessary for me to remind anyone that Biden stopped the construction of the wall immediately after he was elected. Walls are more effective than whips and they are actually more humane. Very few would go 4000 miles just to face a thirty foot wall. The wall does not build up false hopes. As side benefit, they greatly reduce illegal drugs, which are far from humane.

BUILD THE WALL!!

Remembering

You Forgot to Remember

Some of you might not yet know that I have an interest in old songs.  Something happened that reminded me of an old song.  I had almost forgotten it, oddly, because the main line in the song is:

You promised to forget me not, but you forgot to remember.

The song was very popular and I have no idea who first recorded it.  Both Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore had recordings and likely half a dozen more had successful recordings.

Its words do suggest a twist, so to speak.  Nonetheless, it has happened to me a few times.  I have promised to do something, only to forget to remember.  Then too, how about all the friends I used to know who have become faint memories.

Sometimes, I think about looking them up, but I can’t remember their last names.  I only called them by their first names.  Besides, at 72, I don’t remember so well and I had a bad memory for names in the first place.

I thought over the song and figured we have many reasons why we forget things.

First, memories fade.  To some degree, this is a good thing.  Many bad things happen to us and the memory fading does help us cope with them in the end.  Though, it does not always work that way.  My mother died when I was five and I remember every detail as if it were yesterday.  Oddly, it does cause me more grief today than then.  I won’t try to figure it out, other than it is something of a comfort to me too.

Second, memories that are handed down from one generation to the next are rarely incompletely passed along.  In the case of Israel, one generation would learn to obey the God.  Then the next generation would forget him and practice the exact things God told them not to.

Today, nations build statues and memorials.  Whenever I see a statue of someone, it reminds me of what the person did and just why I should remember him.  We also have memorials for WWII and Vietnam War.  Some of us remember.  Some don’t.  Some would prefer to forget the Vietnam War.  They consider it a dark part of our history.

Then again, I got to thinking of the Trade Towers.  It has been but 20 years and already people are forgetting.  They forget the way people jumped, knowing it was a choice of dying by fire or by the fall.  Most preferred the fall.  Each time a person hit the ground it made a distinct thud.

It is as I said, the memories do fade.  Then too it has been a generation.  The history teachers likely spend no more than a day or two about it.  The younger people don’t realize the full scale of what happened and the whys and wherefores.

Even for those who see the memorial, it does not set in the mind the way the actual experience does.  For those who don’t see the memorial, it is even easier to forget.

On the day of the event and for many days after, many promised to forget it not.  The problem is that they forgot to remember.

A few days ago we pulled out of Afghanistan.  Very few even know why we went in there.  Regardless, it was long ago.  Why should we be bothered with it today?

Let me tell you a little story and it just might suggest why we should remember.

In 1968 I graduated boot camp at MCRD San Diego.  Eventually, I was given orders to go to NAS Memphis.  On arrival at LAX, I checked my baggage and went straight back to the gate.  No one asked me for a ticket.  No one cared.  If I had wanted I could have gone to the gate without any need to travel.

You can’t do that today.  You have to show your boarding pass and ID to get to the gate, and by the way, you must also submit to a complete search.

Some say we have stopped terrorism, but we haven’t.  They have succeeded at their goal.  They have disrupted our way of living.  They have all but destroyed our way of life.

So now, my family cannot see me off or meet me at the gate and I can’t take my fingernail clippers along with me.

We need to remember.  We must not forget to remember.  If nothing else, maybe that extra line at the airport will help remind us each time we take a plane.

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.

Fully Automatic Assault Rifles

I don’t know but I suspect there is one aspect that few have considered as a result of the fiasco in Afghanistan. Consider: we left thousands of M16 rifles behind during the Biden retreat. Some of those just might end up being for sale to those coming up through the Mexican border.

May I remind one and all that the M16 is a true assault rifle. It is able to fire fully automatic with the flip of a switch. It looks very similar to an AR15, a semi automatic which the FOCs are trying to outlaw. I have fired an M16 fully automatic as part of my training. It takes a second or two to fire twenty bullets. Magazines are available that hold 70 bullets, and it takes about a second and a half to change magazines.

No truly law abiding citizen would ever try to buy something like that, but the criminal element would certainly love to get their hands on a few of those things, along with a few thousand bullets. I would say I can only imagine what the criminal type could do with something like that, but I can’t. Three or four men with these things could do things even I can’t imagine, especially if they know how to use them.

So now, we can thank our fearless leader for the possibility of the criminal element using M16s on our police or crowds or whatever they can imagine. However, it doesn’t end there. There are likely also machine guns and 50 caliber guns that can shoot through engine blocks and hit a target a mile away. I would suspect there are also a few other things in there, like anti tank weapons and M79 grenade launchers.

I am going to terminate my imagination there. It already bothers me far to much. Regardless, if these things find their way north of the border, we’ll know it. If they are used on the Mexican authorities, they will know it. If any of this makes its into Canada, they will definitely know it.

It is the sort of thing that happens when people like Biden don’t think ahead. Well, in this case, he likely was not thinking at all. YEP! This mistake will not go away with an eraser! I sure wish it could.

Surprise!!

I just heard that some democrats are considering removing the phrase “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Now that surprises me.  My guess is that they would want to remove the pledge altogether.  After all, they do believe in globalism and they do believe in open borders.  With those beliefs, why have any allegiance to anything but the UN.

John Kasich: a Disappointment

If I may paraphrase an old Far side comic, it would appear that John Kasich is out standing in his field or so he would have us think.

It is a shame that he has turned out the way he is.  I used to have a great deal of respect for the man, until he ran for president.  Then he became very angry because candidate Trump beat him badly.

The truth of the matter is that Donald Trump beat him fair and square.  He said that he would build a fence on our southern border.  Kasich said he would do the same thing everyone else did, nothing.

The fact is that there were but two candidates that said anything at all about stemming the flow of illegal aliens across the border.  As it turned out, when all the rest fell by the wayside, there were but two left.  Both wanted to stop the flow of illegal aliens.  They were the only two who did.

The flat out truth is that the Republicans never presented a better candidate.  They, all of them, have nothing to blame but themselves.  Donald Trump saw what the people wanted.  He knew what needed to be done to improve things.  Then that was what he promised.  Then, unlike the others, he actually carried through with the promises, this ever though there were some in his own party who fought him.

What Kasich must realize is that when you don’t want the things the voters want, you stand a good chance of losing, and he did.  Not only did he lose but he lost badly.  Apparently, he didn’t get the message.

Now, instead of learning, he has become a belligerent never-Trumper.  As I said, he has become a disappointment.  He did look like a good Republican.  Now, he seems to be another one of those guys who tries to please everyone.  So he stands out in the field, at a crossroad like the scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz” pretending that all roads lead to the great Oz.

Only the road is not made of gold bricks and none of them lead to the land of Oz.  He prefers the likes of Biden over President Trump and that says a lot about him, all bad.
