Voting Irregularities

Winston Churchill, a wise man, said “A lie gets half way around the world before the truth gets its pants on.”  The dems and the media take advantage of that.  They say something, knowing it is a lie.  Then, if they are caught, they issue a correction.  Not only does the correction not go anywhere, the media continues to quote the lie even after the correction is issued.  So the truth dies while the lie lives on, a fact the liberal media is well aware of.  The liberals prefer to believe the lie, regardless of how unbelievable it is.

The democrats are surprised that someone wants to influence elections.  Actually, it is over a hundred years old.  During Reconstruction (what they called the time rebuilding the South after the Civil War) it was rampant.  It was the primary reason for the formation of the pole taxes, literacy tests and the KKK.  People from the North went into the South and paid Black people to vote… 8 or 9 times.  (I will give you 2 guesses as to whom they wanted them to vote for, and the first one doesn’t count.)

Almost immediately after the advent of the Soviet Union, the communists tried to affect far more than our elections as well as hundreds of others…including Germany.  One of Hitler’s main adversaries was the Bolsheviks, Soviets.  By the late sixties they virtually took control of our colleges.  They were the primary source of the anti-Vietnam war movement and I have not heard one complaint from the democrats about that.

To a lesser degree, they affected our politics during WWII.  After the war, they came within an inch of taking control of this country.  They have had their nose in our politics ever since.  To be sure, Khrushchev made it clear that he would take over our government without firing a shot.  I can’t remember who it was, but there was one commie that said that he who counts the ballots wins the election.  Even a moderately intelligent sixth grader likely knows the meaning of those statements.

When Kennedy was elected, it was clear that someone in Chicago decided to count the ballots.  Possibly, if there was a recount, the results of the election might have come out differently.  For the sake of national unity, Nixon told them not to do the recount.

To this day, precincts are reporting irregularities.  Oddly results are always overwhelmingly democrat.  Though it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out, proving anything can be difficult or impossible.

Several times, Obama said that there was no need to look into voter fraud.  There’s no cheating.  Then, immediately after the vote…guess what…evidence of cheating…by the dems.  Then, of course, the first thing they did was yell fraud at the republicans.  (The best way to cover your tail feathers is to accuse someone else.)

The fact is, we need to change our voting and registration or we will be as the third world countries.  I suggest that registration should be in person and separate from any auto license bureau.  Upon registration, a message should be sent to all other states to ensure that the voter is dropped from their registers.

When the person registers, a photo ID should be issued, which should be required to vote.  To ensure validity, there should have magnetic strip that contains the written info on the card.  When the card is presented to vote, the info on the card should be updated with the current date.  It would prevent the card from being used multiple times.  Finally, when a person dies, a message should be sent to all states to keep anyone from voting or registering by that name.

I know.  It is a lot.  But if we don’t do something, the votes of honest people won’t mean a thing.  It is a sorry state of affairs that we should need to do such things, but, as we just found out, there are people trying to steal our elections.

Certainly, there should be stiff penalties for voter fraud.  The laws should be especially stiff for those that are involved in gross voter fraud.  We should never have 2000 votes in a precinct with 1800 voters.  If there ever is such a thing, it should prompt an immediate federal investigation.

Oh yes.  I have one more suggestion, the most important.  All ballots should be paper.  Electronic voting is too easily altered.  Worse, recounts mean nothing.  Recounts of paper ballots can verify everything, including vote count.

Telling Stories

I’m a storyteller.  Most people can tell my stories are fiction, but just to make sure I precede all my stories with a disclaimer.  You know what I mean.  (The story you are about to read is fiction.  Any resemblance to real events are completely by accident, etc, etc and so forth.)

The primary reason for the disclaimer is legal.  As farfetched as my stories are, someone just might get the idea that I have written about something real.  Oddly, I guess there are a few people who might.

After watching most of Agent Peter Strzok’s stories, I came to the conclusion that he should have issued a disclaimer.  I am sure most of us can figure out that it is fiction, but maybe not everyone.

Unions

My father was a carpenter, a good one.  He could and did build houses from the ground up and by himself.  He did all the plumbing and wiring.  He dug the foundation and he laid the floors.

However, carpenters have unions.  For this reason he spent many hours waiting around the union hall waiting for a job.  He had to wait in line, just like all the rest, regardless of the skill levels and regardless of experience.  If they didn’t have a job for him, he came home.

One day, he was working on a two story apartment building.  One of the new carpenters, a young man, refused to go up on the second floor scaffolding.  My father tried to shame him.  He said, “What’s the matter.  I can walk on my hands completely around the building.”

The young man didn’t believe him.  My father said he would do it if he agreed to work up there.  To make the story short, the young man went up there and worked the rest of the job.  Oh, by the way.  My father was fifty-five at the time.

A short time later, he was taken aside by a union rep and told he needed to slow down.  He was making the rest of the men look bad.  Besides, they needed to make the job last a while.

I am not saying that unions are completely bad.  They fought for safety, especially for minors and steel workers.  They provided many of the things that labor takes for granted today, such as the forty hour work week.  Certainly, they managed to put the kibosh on child labor.

However, the pendulum has swung the other way.  They have become counterproductive.  Those that work harder are punished.  Those who turn in substandard work are protected.  Wages and benefits have become prohibitive, to the point that US industry was unable to compete with foreign industry.  The imported goods were not only less expensive, but better.

In effect, they forced the companies they worked for to go bankrupt.  Then, American taxpayers had to bail them out.

It is no wonder that people have such a negative perception of unions today.  They have had their part in destroying about every part of this country that was good.  The school boards no longer run our schools.  Everything is run by the NEA (National Education Association) even to the point that they determine what is taught and what is not.  About the only way a teacher can be fired is if he or she says something bad about unions.  By the way.  May I point out that the US schools have gone from the best to some of the worst under the management of the NEA?

This would be bad enough, but union management has become self-serving.  In a word, may I say… corrupt?  They no longer represent the rank and file.  They support candidates that support unions.  Needless to say the government officials return the favor.  They know they must or face the consequences.

We call it lobbying, but it is just a fancy word for bribery.  The unions pay some of the biggest bribes, mostly to the Democrats.  Besides their bribes, they outright pay for ads to support Democrat candidates.

In recent years, the unions have started losing their holds on this country.  Businesses are moving to right to work states.  Now, finally, The Supreme Court passed judgment on the government unions, essentially making all states right to work states for government employees.

As the unions disintegrate, as the union bosses are forced to find honest jobs, I can’t help but wonder.  If they had only not gotten so greedy.  They put themselves out of business simply because they wanted too much wealth and power.  In a while, they will have neither.  The government unions were their last stronghold.  Now it is gone.  More than that, the Dems too will suffer.  They will no longer receive the bribes from the union bosses and they will no longer be supported by dishonest men.

Misplaced Empathy

From what I’ve been told, humans are about the only species that feel empathy, a close relative of compassion. When someone hurts, especially someone close to us, we hurt too. Oddly, most of us feel empathy for animals too. Contrary to what all the scientist tell us, I don’t think I am related to apes and such. Yet, when my cat got his paw hung in the chain link fence, I still went over and cut the fence to get it out of his paw. …and by the way, he appreciated it so much that he sunk his teeth over half way through my finger.
I didn’t blame him for it. He thought I was trying to hurt him. Actually, I am sure I was. The wire had gone right through his foot and there was no way I could help him without causing him some pain.

At any rate, afterward, he went to the vet and I went to the doctor. Both of us were in pretty good shape in spite of it all. I got an antibiotic shot and the cat did have some minor problems the rest of his life with one of his claws.

Sometimes, people try to help us, knowing that they will likely hurt us. Many of these people are called doctor. I know I had a hard time remembering this the time I had a dislocated finger and the doctor had to straighten it. (After, the poor woman jumped back. She was convinced that I was going to hit her.)

Sometimes we humans direct our empathy in the wrong way. There are those who would encourage illegal immigration. By putting the welcome mat out, they aid and abet the drug cartels. As a result, people die on the way. The women are raped and the boys are conscripted into gangs.

If they make it into the US, many girls are forced into brothels. Both men and women can end up working in sweat shops for little or nothing. Then, if they are caught, they frequently get sent back to their own country.

If they do manage a safe arrival into the US, they live in constant fear of being found. If they are abused, they are afraid to say anything. If they become sick or injured, they are afraid to go to a doctor or hospital. If they labor in the fields, they are frequently paid a small salary. Then, if the owner of the ranch decides to, he refuses to pay them at all.
Invariably, they use false documents so to allow them to work. Then, if the cartel decides, they use them for whatever purpose serves them.

I would say that it is a mistake the Dems make. The truth is…they likely know all this and they don’t care. They likely have no compassion for the illegal immigrant. When they die, they don’t shed any tears. When the girls are raped, they likely have little interest in it. When a man is stiffed for a day’s wages, I doubt they have any concern.

The fact is, the illegal immigrant serves but two purposes. They provide a mallet with which to hit President Trump and they provide a possible way to increase the number of democrat voters. It is the way the Dems work. They can’t come up with any good policies so they stuff the ballot boxes… or import more voters.  It’s apparently something they learned from the communists.  I can’t remember who it was, but one of the commies said, “He who counts the ballots rules the country.”  …or something to that affect.

Finally, walls stop trucks.  Right now, there are places where a vehicle can just drive over the border.  I don’t know about you, but it sounds to me like a convenient way to smuggle drugs, or about anything else… maybe even an atomic bomb or two.  The wall is a good idea even if we didn’t have people flooding over our borders.

Cleared? Really?

I sat and watched Hillary Clinton (on TV) say that she was cleared of any guilt.  Really?  I don’t believe it. Comey fired salvo after salvo at her; things she definitely did or had done.  As I listened to the report, I was convinced she was going to spend the rest of her life in prison.

It appeared that Comey saved her from incarceration in two ways.  First, he changed a few words in the report.  Second, he said that she didn’t mean to do it.  (Really?  I do find that hard to swallow.)

For crying out loud, she was Secretary of State.  That tells me that either A. Obama appointed a dumb Secretary of State, or B. Comey was doing what he could to keep Hillery out of prison.  Very likely, it was both.

Regardless, he certainly didn’t clear anyone with that report.  He did have two accomplishments.  First he did keep a criminal out of prison and make himself look like a fool.  It is something that will follow him beyond the grave.  There is no undue function for that mistake.

Well, there is one more he accomplished.  It did wonders for the reputation of his law school and college, maybe even his high school.  If his prior schools are proud of him, it makes them look even worse.  I only have a high school degree and I could see the woman was guilty.  His report made it obvious to a sixth grader, maybe a fifth grader.

Finally, there is one more thing I should point out.  If Hillary destroyed all that info on her server, it shouts one admission; that she could get in more trouble from the info than by destroying it.  Naturally, now, this side of eternity, very few will know it.  …and they ain’t talking.

My Mistake?

I made a mistake. I know. It is a big disappointment for you.

Before I explain what the mistake was, let me take a minute to repeat a story I heard from the late news and commentator, Paul Harvey. It seems there was an armed bank thief that decided to hold up a bank one afternoon. He walked up to a teller, handed her a note and pointed a gun at her. To his dismay, she broke into a hard laugh. Finally, the confused would-be thief turned to see the reason for her outburst. The lobby was full of men pointing guns at him. You see, the would-be thief chose to rob the bank across the street from the local FBI office. Worse yet, it was payday.

Yeah, you can file that one in the really dumb criminal file. One would think that even a dumb thief would know better than that. After all, the building was well labeled. I don’t know how FBI agents are paid; maybe it’s twice a month or maybe once. It might have been the first of the month or the fifteenth. Then again it might have been the last day of the month. Then too, it might have been Fridays. Regardless, if you have plans on holding up a bank anywhere near any law enforcement office, you might want to check on normal paydays.

Not that it matters much to the story or my mistake, but the guy just might get away with it today. Most everyone has a direct deposit these days. I know I do. The fact is, tellers are getting kind of rare. Between ATM’s and electronic banking, there isn’t nearly the need for tellers. The place I go rarely has more than two tellers, one on the drive through.

At any rate back to my mistake. I should have gone to Yale or Harvard. I have recently learned it is quite easy to graduate from one or the other or both. Then I could have gone on and become a lawyer.

I am sure you are confused. You likely think it is difficult to graduate from these well known institutes of higher learning. Some of you may have even gone to one or the other of these universities and found it difficult. I simply can’t understand why anyone should have any difficulty at all.

Let me refer you to my story of the dumb thief, a criminal incapable of putting two thoughts together. He too could have graduated from one of the Ivy League establishments. He certainly has something in common with some of the graduates. I would expect that the former director and assistant director of the FBI likely went to one of these most respected schools. Then too, Agent strozyk and his lover each other likely have law degrees, though they might have had to settle for a less respectable college. Either way, someone should have told them about emails and the internet. After all, they did use emails. I think the dumb bank robber would have known better than that. Then there is the agent who is identified only as FBI agent 2.

Then, of course there is Hillary. I understand she has a law degree too. Boy! Did she do some dumb stuff. Fact is, she should be wearing one of those orange jump suits. She would be if real FBI agents investigated her. Then too, I guess it would also take a mediocre prosecutor. If it weren’t for the need of a law degree, anyone who finished his first year of law school would do.

They all believed they were going to get away with it. Then again, they never in the world figured that Hillary was going to lose the election. It was supposed to be a slam dunk. Now, if I might use the politically incorrect phrase, they just might be in heap big trouble.

…and, by the way, the colleges that they graduated from, they just might want to do what they can to disown them. Then again, maybe not. Given what they teach nowadays, they just might be real proud of them. If that is true, I don’t guess I made a mistake after all. I just thought I did. I don’t think I would want to tell anyone that I graduated from Harvard. I don’t think I would want anyone thinking I am that dumb. (If you graduated from any of these schools, you might want to hide or rid yourself of anything that remind you of it.)

Words of Deception

Over the years, I have noticed there are a few terms that are frequently used in deceptions.  I figured that I might include them below for you.

The children.  Usually, when a politician uses this term, the children benefit the least.  If money is involved, it usually goes to some other purpose and often into someone’s pocket.

Comprehensive.  The first time I heard this word was “Comprehensive immigration bill.”  It was supposed to solve all the woes of immigration.  However, after studying the bill, it became obvious that it solved everything but illegal immigration.  Actually, it encouraged it.  Then they were upset because the people all got in an uproar and made them vote it down.  Ever since then, they complain about it.  Now and then, they bring it up again, in hopes that maybe they will catch us napping, or maybe we’ll tire of fighting it.  Needless to say, comprehensive or a similar term is used from time to make other expressions:  Healthcare, crime bill, education, mass transit, etc.  Unless you don’t mind getting deceived, keep your eyes open.

Environment.  It is the new home for the communists.  Those  that like to use the word want to make sure we all ride around on bicycles while they go around in limos and jets.  it is the same concept the communists have.  A few people in control telling the rest of us what to do, where to go, and of course, what to think.

Prejudice.  This word and a few synonyms are used whenever a person with common sense gets in the way of the powers to be.  Naturally, it is a term that has been used frequently to disparage President Trump.  It has caused the the controllers no end of grief that it hasn’t worked.  Maybe one reason it fails to work on him is that the term has been abused and overused so much that the public has become immune to it.  In a sense, we have been inoculated to it.  The bad thing is that the people who truly suffer prejudice are ignored.  I heard a story about that one time.  Let me see.  Oh yes.  It’s the story about the boy who called wolf.  Most of us know the disaster the befell the boy that made that mistake.

Lobbying.  Also known as bribery.  The problem with a government or its representatives accepting bribes is that it usually benefits the one doing the bribing.  To be sure, bribes are illegal in federal, state and local governments.  However they are still common place.  More than that, lobbyists bribe representatives all the time and it is legal, as long as the money goes to a campaign.  However, offers in kind are often collected after the politician retires and goes back into private life.  It makes it next to impossible to enforce.  Besides, its an acceptable practice.  Its a retirement plan.  Certainly, much of the bribery comes in from unions, especially the National Education Association (NEA).  (The National Endowment for the Arts (also NEA) also makes bribes, though they are greatly financed by the federal government.  I don’t know about you, but that sounds improper.  They are using government money to bribe government officials.)  I don’t know anything that can be done about lobbyists.  Corporations and unions do have an ethical right to representation.  However, I do believe all such money should be published.  Nowadays, with the Internet, that shouldn’t be a problem.  The government official and the those lobbying the officials should post the financial info on web pages and kept there for a reasonable time.  That way, when I get ready to vote for someone, I will know where they get most of their contributions.  Also, it will let me keep an eye on those doing the lobbying.  As for the art outfit: that’s just wrong.  It ought to be illegal, though I don’t think that will happen.  Those receiving the funds are not likely going to vote against it.  It’s sort of like expecting our representatives to vote for term limits.  It’s just not going to happen.

I’m sure there are many words I’ve left out that you can think of.  If you like, I welcome your suggestions.  Let’s just keep it clean and reasonable.  Invariably, the terms are easy to see, provided you take a minute to think about it.  Mostly it is a matter of making sure you understand any law involved and determine who would benefit the most.  This is usually the person who uses the euphemism.
