Honesty and Intelligence

Considering all of the number of dummycrats in The House, you would think they could find one honest one to lead the impeachment investigation.  Well, then again, maybe that is expecting too much.  It does seem that knowing how to lie is a requirement for them.

At least, they should find someone with a a little intelligence.  I mean, Schiff really made an idiot out of himself when he tried to lie about what President Trump said in the phone call.  I would say he just outright lied, but that is not true.  It wasn’t even a successful lie.  It was proven to be a lie almost before he finished it.

It just goes to show.  You cannot trust the dummycrats to do anything.  They aren’t even good at being dishonest.

By the way, this another proof positive that can’t count on someone with a college degree to be smart or honest.  It is also proof positive that you can’t believe anything a dummycrat says.

Capitalism vs Socialism

A few days ago, I went into a fast-food restaurant,  (not McDonald’s)  The person taking my order was rude and my order was not complete.  I didn’t notice it right away and considering that I was not given a receipt, I figured my chances of getting the remainder of my order improbable.  There were other problems too, but I won’t go into that.

Needless-to-say, I will not be going back to that place.  For those working in or running restaurants, or any business for that matter, it might be something you might want to remember.  I didn’t complain.  I just won’t go back.

It is the nature of capitalism.  For those who do not provide good service, they lose business, possibly, to the point of going out of business.  Those who provide a good product and good service will likely get many return customers.  It’s just common sense.

On the other hand, under socialism, people have no recourse.  The business is run by the state and if you don’t like it, it’s just too bad.  Actually, who am I kidding.  The likelihood of having a decent restaurant in the first place is quite remote.  Restaurant work is hard work.  Without reward, I know of no one who would want to work in one.  Anyone working in one would likely be there by force.  Moreover, no one would have any reason to open such a business.

The fact is, the desire for reward is what makes things work.  You take the reward away, you destroy the desire to work.  More important, you destroy the desire to risk opening a business in the first place.  Indeed, you stifle the desire to invent and develop ideas and concepts.

It is why the US develops more than half the medicines.  I mentioned earlier in one of my other posts how wonderful the devices are that generate oxygen.  At one time, diabetes was a death sentence.  After time, they developed methods of measuring blood sugar.  In the last thirty or so years, they have made great advances in this.  Nowadays, all I have to do is poke myself and put the blood on a strip.  Five seconds later, I know my sugar level.

If it weren’t for the rewards that researchers received, I would likely have to use the Ph strips that were used 30 or 40 years ago.  I don’t know.  I might not have that.  This very moment, they have many advances they are researching and testing.  Likely, within, fifty years, treatment might be as simple as implanting a pump that will sense the amount of sugar in the bloodstream and automatically supply the correct amount of insulin.

Take the rewards away from the people and the companies doing the research, and you can forget it.  We will do well to maintain what we have.

To put it blunt, socialism destroys motive.  Motive is what has brought us out of the stone age.  If you doubt me, consider what wonderful advances have been made in socialistic societies.

Some might like to suggest the Soviet Union or China.  Forget it.  All of their advances are the result of copying our advances.  They are really good at copying things.  Original ideas are something all socialists countries lack.

The really horrible thing about socialism, though, is what it does to societies.  Some, the leaders, have good food, excellent health benefits, and wonderful housing.  The rest, not so much.  It is the modern surf system, but worse.  At least in the old surf system, there was no effort to control thoughts.

Respect

Short of murder or assault, one of the worst things one man can do to another is to put words in his mouth.  In a way, it is worse than physical assault.  While a man may recover from wounds, he might not ever recover from an assault on his reputation.

When Adam Schiff made up the words to the phone conversation, he was not just lying.  He was putting words in the mouth of President Trump.  At this point, if I were President Trump, I would not give the man the time of day until he issued a written apology, maybe not then.  I would want to make sure he meant it.

In the meantime, the man does not deserve to hold any kind of hearings.  How can anyone trust anything the man, or his cohorts say or write.

Moreover, the foreign service is put totally in the hands of the president.  The framers of The Constitution wisely decided that such things should not be done by “committee.”  Committee are too slow and indecisive.  Moreover, keeping a secret is much more difficult when hundred or so know it.  I don’t know how many are on the Intelligence Committee, but there are at least three or four aides for each representative. We are likely talking about more than a hundred people.

Therefore, any requirement by the congress to turn over any foreign correspondence is not only a bad idea; it is not constitutional.  Moreover, any spying by the CIA on the president is illegal.  Therefore, the only one doing anything illegal here is the so-called whistle-blower.

Finally, if the president cannot have a private conversation with other heads-of-state, he has been horribly hampered.  It is like a boxer who has but one arm.  Henceforth, those who talk to our president, even after President Trump leaves office, will have suspicions that the whole world might very well hear what was said.  Most assuredly, it will change what is said.

Sequels

When I started my second book, “The Detailer,” I had my reservations.   Most of the sequels I’ve read or seen were rehashes of the original.  Moreover, in most cases, they were not as good.  I was determined to make sure all my sequels and all my books are never, in any way, rehashes of any  of my other books.

I also endeavor to improve the quality of each book.  Granted, I might still have problems with the grammar in my books.  Indeed, I do occasionally misuse a word.  However, no one will ever be able to accuse me of just simply rehashing any of my books.  (This is especially true with the “Mitch” series.)

However, those dummycrats don’t seem to have any problems using the same plot in all their sequels.  In no less than 5 attempts at driving President Trump out of office, they have not come up any new plots or any new story concepts yet.  Always they make the accusation.  Always, they are proved wrong.

I would say they end up with egg on their faces, but the media always come to their rescue.  In fact, they aid and abet even in the construction all of the accusations.

Their methods have gone from well planned to hastily constructed disasters.

A whistle-blower?  Please.  How much thought did they put into that one.  It is casual to the most obvious observer that he was in league with the dummycrats from the start, maybe sooner.

Only thing I can’t understand about it… how in the world do they manage to deceive so many.  Maybe it is because it is so obvious that some folks can’t believe that anyone would try such a thing.

On the other hand, maybe it is just that they want to believe it.  No one so easily deceived than those that have a desire to believe the lie.

For those who have not read it, you might want to read “The Prepper.”  I don’t know why, but it is my most successful book.  Most those who have read most of my books enjoy the most.  It is about a young man who thinks he has prepared for any eventuality.  How quickly he learns he left some of the most important things out.

One nice thing about Amazon is that all readers can read a sample without paying one dime.  Just simply click on the book you would like to sample and the first part of the book to you.  As far as I know, you can even read samples from other other authors.  Then again, why would you want to.  You have about 35 to select from that I wrote.

If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry.  You can still read the book on Windows, iPod or Android devices.  In fact, I have read a few books on my little phone that has less than a three inch screen.  For those who would prefer listening to their books, text-to-speech is enabled on all my books.  It sort of makes it easier and safer to read and drive at the same time.

Sixth Amendment?

I’ve taken a little look at the sixth amendment.  As near as I can tell, the right to face your accuser only applies for defendants in criminal court.  That means that the worst killer or rapist has the right to face his accuser.  This includes victims as well as any witness.

There are three reasons for this.  First, it is a verification that the witness exists.  Without the sixth amendment, the prosecution can just make up the witness and claim he is real.

Second, the accused is able to question the witness.  Believe it or not, some witnesses do lie.  When the witness is put on the witness chair under oath, it gives the accused the ability to challenge the witness’s testimony.  Strange as it seems, some witnesses don’t tell the truth.  Sometimes they intentionally lie, even under oath.

Third, it gives the accused a chance to uncover motives.  For instance, if the witness stands to gain a few million dollars by giving false witness, it might be a good thing for the jurors to consider during deliberations.

Unfortunately, President Trump does not have this right.  He is not being tried in a criminal court.  He is being railroaded by a bunch of dummycrats that hate him.  Instead of a jury, if impeached, he will be judged by senators.  There is no doubt in my mind that he will not be found guilty.

However, the false charges brought by the false witnesses are also being displayed (very selectively) before the public.  Even if there is no impeachment, the falsities remain and the president never gets a chance to challenge any of it.

Hence, he is not even being treated as well as a serial killer.

May I remind you, we don’t even know if these whistleblowers exist?  Assuming he does, we don’t know his motives.  Finally, there is no opportunity for the president’s lawyers to challenge the accuracy of what they say.

Is this really the way to run an impeachment?  I am sure that if our forefathers considered such a thing, they likely would have written the sixth amendment a little differently.

Then again, they likely never considered the likes of the dummycrats.

Who’s the Racist?

President Trump has said nothing racist.  He has done nothing racist.  On the contrary, he has done very much to help the African-Americans and the Hispanics.

On the other hand, all those of the squad all expect special treatment because they are racist.  It is casual to the most obvious observer.  Every time someone says anything about them, they yell racism.  It is a reflex and said without giving it any thought.

Not only are they racist, but they are also dumb.  It’s why all call them dummycrats.
