My Biggest Fear

We can stop some people from coming across the border by stopping welfare.  We can almost put a total stop of illegal immigration by keeping illegals from gaining any form of employment… even the under the table type.

Of course, there are those who cross the border with all kinds of diseases.  The kids attend out schools and expose our children to such things as anti-bionic resistant TB and who knows what else.  Indeed, there might be a few diseases we don’t yet know about.  That in itself sounds like a good reason to build a wall.

Then there are all the drugs that are brought over the border.  It is true that some of it comes in through ports of entry, but the vast majority bypasses the scrutiny the border guards there.  It only stands to reason.  Why sneak the stuff through the border stations when they can just go a few miles to the side and drive the stuff over, virtually unhindered.

However, my greatest fear is that one person or group of people that bring a weapon of mass destruction into the country.  One nuclear weapon in L. A. would be more than disastrous.  There are over ten million in Los Angeles and Orange County area, more than in the city of New York.  There is a huge Navy Base in San Diego, just a few miles north of the border.  Do we really want to leave our guard down as we did at Perl Harbor?

Do you think 9-11 was bad?  If someone sets off a nuclear weapon in San Diego or Los Angeles, even if it is a small one, it will make the attack in New York seem like small potatoes.

Do we always need to learn the lessons by firsthand experience?  Do we always have to wait until after the attack to find out we are vulnerable?  My best guess is that if we wait, it will be too late.  I don’t think we will be able to recover.

The bad part is that we won’t be able to retaliate.  We won’t know who was behind it.  I guess we just just have to retaliate against everyone.  Then, as they say, there won’t be anything left but the cockroaches.

The truth of the matter is that Pelosi and cohorts know the dangers of leaving the border open.  The fact is that it is more than political.  It is about the power.  They want to control the country.  They want to control the world and they want to control everyone in it.

It is as old as civilization.  There have always been those who seem to control others.  There have always been those who want to be king of the world.  The Greeks and Romans used swords.  Hitler used guns.  The dummycrats use promises.  They promise us everything and then they take all our freedom.

In this case, it just might backfire on them.  If someone plants a nuclear bomb in Chicago, they just might want to run for the border and keep running Venezuela.  Then again, they might want to run to Cuba.  My guess is that they would be welcomed there with opened arms.

On the other hand, they would have to give up all the power they accumulated.  They just might have to work for a living.

A Short Question About Tunnels

Dummycrats claim walls don’t work.

If walls don’t work, why do the smugglers go through all the effort to build tunnels under them?

By the way, I have been notified that drones can work… if they are armed with Hellfire missiles.  Helicopters work real good too… if armed with machine guns and rockets.  They would certainly be very effective, but I don’t think it would be such a good idea.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Drones vs Walls

It’s why I call them dummycrats.  They keep saying dumb things.  They say we don’t need walls.  We can use drones and they are much less expensive.

Well, here’s a news alert.  Walls greatly impede illegals from crossing the border; drones don’t.  For my stupid political opponents, the best a drone can do is spot someone as they cross over the border.  I assure you, they will not and cannot stop anyone.  Then, once they are here, they are here and we can’t send them back.  Now tell me, just what is so brilliant about drones.

The truth is, they know better.  It is just their effort to deceive, and a poor one at that.  The truth is that they don’t want the wall because it will work and it will keep all their new voters out.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Save the World!

First disallow all private jets.  It would decrease carbon dioxide by incalculable tons.  Besides, it would likely cut down on the cost of travel on commercial airlines.  More folks would want to fly first class… decreasing the cost for those of us flying coach.

Second, require proper management of the forest.  Get rid of dead trees and undergrowth.  One forest fire likely produces more carbon dioxide than thousands of cars spew out in a year.  Besides, burning wood also produces a bunch of carbon monoxide.  Good forest management would drastically cut down on the quantity and size of forest fires.  The undeniable fact is the dead trees are nothing more than fuel for the next fire.  Thinning the trees in the forest insures that the remaining trees survive… as well as those creatures living in the forest.

The fact is that fuels such as gasoline and natural gas have drastically improved things.  Before internal combustion engines, the streets were lined with disease ridden horse manure.  Before we heated our homes with natural gas, we used wood and coal.  I think most of us would not want to return to those “good ole days.”  On the other hand, lets remember who generates most of the carbon dioxide — those who have the big houses and cars — many of which are those forcing the ecology down our throats.  Al Gore certainly uses his share of fuel.  He has a nice big house and flies around in those private jets, he and his countless friends.  (Moreover, his predictions are way off.  According to his movie, Florida should have been completely covered by the ocean years ago.)

Finally, I in no way condone the riots in France, but I can’t believe that anyone should be surprised by them.  The French government is robbing the middle and lower classes in the name of decreasing climate change.  As I said before and I will say again, those forcing the gas tax on people are those who don’t have to pay the taxes and the wealthy.  I assure you, those running France are not going to suffer one little bit from the increase in the cost of gas.  The wealthy don’t suffer the pain when the taxes go up ten or fifteen cents.  Those who drive to and from work daily, on the other hand, feel the pinch every time they have to pull up next to pump.  It means they have to give up something.  In some cases, that isn’t even an option.  It might mean they lose their job because they can’t afford the tax.

My personal opinion is that the climate changers are simply using the so called science for control.  Let’s face it. Controlling our mobility is certainly one method toward that end.  They want to move around freely while the rest of us walk, or use horses.

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.

Who Killed Dr. M. L. King?

According to history, it was James Earl Ray.  Personally, I have my suspicions about that.  I don’t know, but I would say the chances are about 60% that the real killer walked.

I always had suspicions about the case.  Call it a hunch.  However, over the years, I have seen and heard things that have given me solid reasons.

  1. An episode of Law and order. The suspect was told that he would be given the death penalty if he didn’t sign a confession.  The man said, “In the old days they used rubber hoses.  I think I prefer that.  At least I would have come out of it alive.”
    Which is worse, beating a confession from a man or threatening him with death?  Like the character in Law and Order, I would prefer the rubber hose.  Regardless, I will never confess to a crime I haven’t committed.
    Basically, this is what happened to James Earl Ray.  I don’t know the exact percentage, but I would suspect that many people would admit to most anything if it means not being killed.  In my book, it negates the value of the confession.
  2. They never tested the rifle. It seems to me that if the prosecuting attorney wanted to put the right guy in prison, he would have insisted on testing the rifle.
    Not only did they not immediately test the rifle, but they also rested for years the testing of it.  I can only conclude that they were afraid they would have egg all over their faces if it tested negative.
    Finally, when the tested the rifle, it turned out inconclusive.  If it tested inclusive at the time, it likely would have been devastating to their case.  If it turned out negative, Ray would very likely have walked.
    I have no idea what time played in the testing of the rifle, but if the test would have been inconclusive immediately after the crime, it could not have been used as evidence.
  3. I don’t know what proof they had against Ray. They never had to present it in court.  I suspect it was a weak case at best.  Moreover, Ray never got a chance to present his defense.  I don’t think I like that.  For that matter, I suspect that Ray never saw the evidence.
  4. It looked to me that they were in a hurry to convict someone. It appeared as if anyone would do.  They just wanted the case closed.

I get it.  I understand the advantage of confessions.  They save time and money.  If they tried the case, it likely would have lasted a couple of years and there is no telling how much it cost.  More than that, they would have had to develop real proof and convince twelve people he was guilty.

By the way, there was also an unsettled populous in the city of Memphis.  No one in the hierarchy of city government wanted to see that.  Also, they didn’t much like the publicity that the assignation brought to The Bluff City.

The problem with that is that a mistake just might have been made.  If so, an innocent man went to prison for life and a killer walked.

 

A few of my books bring up problems with our legal system.  One of them is “The Floater.”  If you would like to read it or any of my other 35 books, you can order it from my author’s page at

Unintended Consequences

Whenever you try to fix a problem, you stand in danger of creating others.  When they passed a law to allow people to seek asylem, they fixed a problem.  Now they have a bigger problem.

They need to revisit the law and repair it or our national language will be Spanish. If in doubt, consider that there are some places in this country where Spanish is more common than English.  Guess what?  It is spreading quickly.
