Experience

Without a doubt, we can say that the wise person learns from his experience.  However, as for me, I like to profit from the experience of others.  Mostly, it costs me less.  Then again, maybe I am wrong.  After all, I am hardly one to give advice.  I am basically living off my Social Security at 72.  (Some retirement)

Nonetheless, I have no bills other than insurance, utilities and taxes.  Unless some unforeseen disaster comes along, I’ll do just fine.

Then I look at all these cities governments that want to do away with their police.  OK.  Fine.  I don’t think it is such a good idea but if that’s what they really want, it is their decision to live with.  Even so, I suggest they hold off for a month or two.  When the other cities meet with disaster, then the cities that hold back will be able to learn from the mistakes of the others.

On the other hand, if your city officials launch right out and do away with the police right away, then the other cities will learn your mistake and so will you.  Then, all the police you did have will be gone and reorganizing a new department will take far too long, not to mention the time it will take to replace all the police officers.

By the way, in this case, the cost of the experience might be more than money.  It will very likely cost lives as well: black, brown and white.  It will likely hit the blacks worst of all.  That would make the lesson very expensive for you and even more for your constituents.  Then again, I have been wrong a time or two.  It just might cost you far more than you would ever have ever thought.

Then, we all will be able to file this under dumb ideas.  The tragedy is that still won’t learn.  It is the nature of dummycrats.  They keep trying the same old things and expecting something different.  The fact is, there are some folks who are bad and need to be locked up, for their good as well as society.  To do this, we need police, district attorneys and courts.  Without them, even some honest people break the law.

Open Question for One and All

Former UN Ambassador under Obama (Samantha Power) requested the unmasking of several people (around 7 if memory serves me properly) who were in the Trump campaign.  My question is simple, Why?  What purpose did it serve?  Certainly, it can’t have had anything to do with Russia.

I cannot imagine that her job would involve any need to unmask anyone.

For me, it would seem to shoot a hole in their logic that all the unmasking was justified.

I mean Samantha Power, seems a nice woman.  Of all those on the Obama administration, she seemed to me the least objectionable.  So far, I have no idea who she unmasked and, of course, I have no idea why.

Naturally, I don’t have a list of duties for the position, but, as near as I can tell, she was not much more than a mouth piece for Obama and, hopefully, the United States.  So, if anyone can give me a reason that she had for unmasking anyone, please let me know.

Personally, I have about come to the conclusion that all permission for unmasking should require the president’s explicit signature.  That way, he would not be given that wonderful “plausible deniability” that Obama has relied on.  It would seem every time someone asks him about any of it, he claims he had no knowledge of it.  Either he is lying or his staff kept a lot of secrets from him.

Moreover, it displayed how little the Obama crew respected the law and the incoming administration.

Don’t You Just Love Lawyers?

I saw a commercial the other day that floored me.  The lawyer said that we should never feel bad for the other driver.  The other guy’s insurance will pay, not the other driver.  If the other guy doesn’t have insurance we won’t sue him.

Dah!

Now that makes sense.  The lawyer just might be rather smart but, clearly, he thinks I’m dumb.  Just what kind of lawyer will go after someone who has no means of paying the judgment?

The truth of the matter is that there is one thing that the lawyer is interested in, his forty percent.  Therefore, he will only sue someone with money or someone with insurance.  It would be stupid to go after someone who has no way to pay.  If he did, then even if he won, he would still lose.  He would be out the time and legal expenses.  …and his forty percent of nothing would still be nothing.


I have nothing to back it up with, but my best guess is that one of the biggest causes of the increase in insurance are lawyers.  Indeed, if you take the lawyers out of the settlements, the cost of insurance would likely decrease by a third, maybe more.

Certainly, this is true about auto insurance, but maybe even truer in other things as well.  Consider the doctor.  He must carry insurance to cover all suits, especially those that have no basis.  Most suits are settled to prevent the larger court costs.  The doctor says, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

His insurance company says “It doesn’t matter.  Settle or you are on your own.”

It happens every day.  The doctor does nothing wrong and the lawyer walks off with 10 or 20-thousand dollars.  In most cases, the lawyer knows he has no case but he sues anyway, knowing the doctor will settle.

Do you think this doesn’t affect you?  Think again.  A big part of those doctor’s fees goes to pay the malpractice insurance.  Every time you pay a doctor, or the health insurance premium, some of it goes to those lawyers.

Every time you buy a somewhat dangerous product like a lawnmower or even a toaster, some of what you pay is going to go to line the pockets of those lawyers.  Every time you buy medicine, guess what.  Pharmacies must pay for insurance too.  Sometimes, they don’t have enough insurance and they go bankrupt paying the judgments.

Lawyers continually go in search of prey, just as a tiger shark.  Then, when they find it, you see the ad on the TV the next day.  They dare not delay.  They know if they do, some other lawyer will beat them to the pay dirt.

On the other side of the coin, some companies knowingly do things wrong.  Well, actually it isn’t the company.  It is some person or persons within the company.  So, the big corporation goes bankrupt and all the employees are without jobs.  Meanwhile, the character who truly caused the problem retires with a million-dollar golden parachute.  The only people who walk away unscathed are the lawyers, both sides, and the culprit who took the short cut to save a dime or two in the manufacturing process.

By the way, the public loses too.  The product that was being made was a good one.  Now we must do without it.  Don’t you just love lawyers?


By the way, the main reason it works this way is that it is mainly lawyers who write the laws.  They write the laws to benefit the laws, not the folks like you and me.

Definition of a Lie

We now have proof that the dummycrats knew there was no collusion.

We also know that, from the beginning, they have been preaching that there was colluding by candidate Trump and then President Trump.  The two things are mutually exclusive.  Both cannot be true at the same time.

To me, that sort of looks like lying.  Maybe they have their own definition, but, if we go by the dictionary, we must say that the dummycrats have been lying.

Then again, we could try to cover it up a little.  We could say they told a little fib.  On the other hand, we could say they have been a little less than truthful.

Personally, I call it a whopper.  Moreover, had Clinton won the election, the lie would have been accepted as absolute truth, at least, by most.  On the other hand, to the mass media, it is historical fact.

Of the liars, Schiff, has to be worst.  He knew there was no proof and yet he insisted he had some.  Moreover, he misrepresented the phone call.  Worst yet, when confronted face to face with the truth, he refuses to admit the lie.

Though I can’t prove it, I believe Obama was the originator of the lie.  For this, I refer you back to one of my earlier posts, the one about incarcerating a president.  I see no need to rewrite it here.  Regardless, even if we had a ton of proof of his wrongdoing, Obama won’t go to prison.  At worst, he and many of his cohorts will be put under house arrest.  The earned imprisonment is simply impractical.

In such a situation, the secret service agents would take on a second task as prison guards.  If I weren’t so old, it is something I would eagerly volunteer for.  They wouldn’t even need to pay me.

Damage Assessment

In one of my previous posts, I spoke of a conspiracy.  Many may not believe it.  Many may not think of it as being that serious.  Regardless, it is a fact that it has caused problems.  First and foremost, it has given The United States Justice Department, especially the FBI  a black eye.

My best guess is that the FBI will never regain have the respect that it once had.  This is a shame considering that it was only the leadership that has caused the stench.  Along with the loss of respect, there is a loss of trust.  I don’t speak for others, but my attitude has changed.

A few years ago, I would have gone way out of my way to help the FBI.  Today, not so much.  They want to question me, they will have to give me a statement that they will not charge me with lying.  By the way, I would suggest that anyone reading this do the same.

To be sure the activities are far reaching.  When I hear that someone is being prosecuted by Justice, I will wonder about their guilt.  I may even suspect that there is no evidence.  They certainly had none against Gen. Flynn.

When a dummycrat representative stands up before the world as makes a absolute statement, I will not believe him.  This will be so regardless of how many witnesses he produces.  Might I remind you that Rep. Schiff had many witnesses that backed his story…until they were under oath.  Then, what they had to say was the complete opposite of Schiff’s statement.

May I also remind one and all that we almost had a takeover of our government.  A president was impeached without an ounce of evidence.  The recent releases of the testimonies previously kept secret by Schiff verify that.

Finally, the dummycrats have been a constant hindrance to everything the president has tried to do, in many cases without reason other than to make him look bad.  If the president had not been so greatly apposed, we would be far better off today.  Every thing he has done or tried to do is for the betterment of the nation.

As for that judge that is trying Flynn’s case, let me paraphrase an old saying.  As we look at the hem of his robe, we now see that his bias is showing.  He really should be embarrassed by this exposure, but I doubt he is.  So, now we can’t trust the federal judges either.  (I suppose that ought not surprise any of us)

A Whole of Conspiring Going On

There was a movie, “The Conspiracy Theory.”  (It’s a good movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you should.)  In it, a man whose sanity was a little suspect, proved a massive conspiracy.  I have a copy of it, a DVD and I have watched it a number of times.

The first time I watched it, it seemed very unbelievable.  Now, I have second thoughts.

Moreover, it has come to my attention that we are living in a real historic time.  The conspiracy that we have seen unfold before us is far greater than the one in the movie.

The list of conspirators is a very long list, so I will list them in groups.  First, there is the intelligence group: CIA and the rest of that alphabet soup.  Then the congressmen.  We certainly can’t overlook The Justice Department.  Of course, that would include the FBI, which includes likely a dozen or so high level personnel.

Some would suggest that Obama was part of it, maybe Biden as well.  They may or may not have instigated it but they definitely knew and did nothing to stop it.  To be sure, Obama was part of the group that wanted the Paris Accord.  Also, he likely would be very happy with a one world government.

The largest group was the press, those who were constantly quoting anonymous sources.  It is amazing how they managed to suggest all sorts of lies in bold print on the first page of every paper and they put the retractions well buried inside, if at all.

At least, to some degree, federal judges have tried to further the efforts of the conspirators.  Many times, they have chosen to make decisions against President Trump.  In one of the most recent ones, The Supreme Court decided unanimously against the lower court and in favor of the President.  Even the liberal agreed the lower courts were wrong.  The problem is that the lower courts managed a delay tactic and they knew it.

 

Every conspiracy has a purpose.  In this case, it had multiple purposes, but they all sprang from one goal, global control.  In the process, they knew they would have to destroy or circumvent the constitution, especially the first four amendments.  Something of a absurdity, they used the amendments in their attempt to destroy them, such as the freedom of speech and the press.  No one dares to say anything politically incorrect or they are immediately dragged through the mire of the justice of the press.

It also relied on ceding our sovereignty.  This was to be accomplished through the Paris accord and the TPP.  The trick is that any treaty with any other country, if approved by congress, supersedes the constitution.  Oh…and by the way.  This was all coincidental to ceding our sovereignty to the U.N.

The whole process was going along swimmingly for them.  Then, President Trump came along and became president.  Their first big disaster was when he withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and they started realizing the prognosis.  President Trump was not a globalist and he did not intend to let the globalist have their way.  Then, of course, he withdrew from the Paris Accord.  He saw right through the fog of the ecologists and chose not to cede any part of our sovereignty to the treaty.

Even before he took the oath of office, the conspirators were busy trying to destroy him and his administration.  One by one they have been busy trying to pick off members of his cabinet, this while setting traps and roadblocks.  The colluders knew that if the new judges believed in The Constitution, their efforts might be set back a decade or two.  Already, they realize some of their fears.  While the liberal lower courts continue to rewrite the law, The Supreme Court has now made several decisions in his favor and, ultimately, in the favor of our country.

Now it would appear that the documentation of the above is being exposed.  In case after case, the dummycrats, in public, tell of the Russian collusion.  However, in secure sessions, not one of them admits to knowing any anything about Russian collusion.

So, they either lied to us, the public, as part of a conspiracy or they lied to Congress under oath.  Somehow, I am more prone to believe that they were lying to us.  Lying to the public might have consequences, but it is not against the law.

In summary, it would appear that the only collusion going on was by the dummycrats.  Only, it is legally called conspiracy.

The historic fact is that we barely avoided a coup d’état by the globalists.  If they had succeeded, there would soon be no more constitution.  Our national government would soon be replaced by some kind of one world bureaucracy, possibly the U.N.

It is no wonder they hate President Donald Trump.  He foiled their takeover, at least for the short term.  If the dummycrats should regain control (and power) it would not be long before they would be right back on track.  President Trump will have only made enough of a bump in the road to slow them a few years.

I hope and pray that doesn’t happen.  I don’t like movies where the bad guys win.

 

Oh!  One more little detail.  Guess who is footing the bill for this conspiracy.  That’s right.  We, the tax payers.  (This includes all that was spent in framing Gen. Flynn.  It was likely 4 or 5 million dollars, maybe more.)

Don’t expect any of these conspirators to pay the price for their dirty deeds.  Dummycrats never go to jail, only republicans.

Success

Some people work hard for success.

Others, like the dummycrats, destroy others to succeed.  Ever since Mr. Trump became President Trump (and actually a little before) the dummycrats have done what they can to destroy him and his presidency.

In itself, that is bad enough.  The problem is that they have no reservations about also destroying the lives of virtually all who are around him.  At the least, they destroyed the lives of 4 good people, including a 4 star general with an impeccable record.  In addition, they have all but brought the workings of congress to a stop.  That is not right.

Even worse, in their effort to destroy President Trump, they have no qualms with causing harm to our nation and its citizenry.  This is true even to the point that they cheer when the stock market takes a downturn.  …and, this includes the corona virus.

Now tell me, just how dumb is that, to cheer when our country is potentially overrun with a disease that just might cost the lives of, perhaps 3 million.  Some of them just might be your grandparents.  One or two of them might be relatives or friends who have had transplants.  To be sure, anyone who has asthma or COPD is subject to being killed by the virus.

Of course, they don’t care.  They don’t mind if businesses and travel all slow or possibly stop.  They aren’t the ones who will suffer.  They will always have the best of care and they will always have their access to transportation.

I wonder if they have considered what might happen when senators and representatives start showing up on the job wearing masks.  Think of how it might be like when that colleague next to him starts coughing and sneezing.  Will it become a requirement for representatives to be checked for fever before entering either chamber.

Regardless, the fulfillment of their wish might become  their worst nightmare.  Many of those, such as Pelosi are old.  If they are exposed, the best healthcare will do them little good.  There is only so much that even the best doctors and the best medicines can do.

Nonetheless, none of them, unless they become personally threatened by the bug will have any remorse for calling the president a xenophobe for keeping travelers from China out of the US.

 

It is why I call them dummycrats.  It is why I encourage the construction a wall from one coast to the other.  Presidents will come and presidents will go; but the wall will continue doing its job for decades or even centuries.  It is the only thing, which provides some insurance that, when a dummycrat becomes president, he won’t do something really do something dumb, such as open the flood gates.

Caronavirus

I’m sure everyone is just waiting on pins and needles to learn what I have to say about caronavirus.  Well, I have observed a thing or two.  I’m sure most of you won’t be surprised by any of them.

First, let’s look at the cold hard facts, as near as we know them.  There are roughly 300 million people in the US.  The virus has a fatality rate of about 2%.  I would suspect that it is quite a bit lower.  It is highly likely that there were many who contracted the disease who never reported it, which would throw off the calculations.  Nonetheless, let’s use the numbers we have.

That means that if everyone in the US caught the disease, roughly 10 million would die.  That would be a disaster.  It would be horrible.  However, our country would survive it.  It would leave 290 million people who would still live within our borders.

I strongly suspect that it will not be anywhere near that bad.  First, the bug kills only the old (that’s me) and those who have breathing problems to begin with.  (That’s me too.  I have COPD.)  Also, those who have compromised immune systems would be susceptible. By isolating such people, our losses would likely be less than a million.

Certainly, President Trump did a brilliant by keeping those who might be carrying the disease out of the country and he also isolated those who he permitted entrance.  Now we currently have 60 known people who were infected.  If our luck holds, it will be a long time before anyone slips into the US without our knowing it.  That gives us time, precious time.  If we can keep the epidemic at bay for about a year, it just might give those doing the research time to develop something to resolve the problem more permanently.

That means, the last thing we want to do, is to allow a swarm of people in the country who who might be carrying the virus.  That sounds like a really good reason to BUILD THE WALL!!  The last thing you want is for someone sneaking across the border and giving it to who knows how many.

That’s not the half of it.

He just might pass the virus to a few of his fellow travelers.  Even if we catch the original one, 5 or 6 of of his traveling companions could completely bypass all the efforts to keep the disease out.  Worse yet, he might have infected hundreds or even thousands.

There are dummycrats who think we should take money away from building the wall to treat those with the virus.  That’s stupid.  If the wall had been built already, it would drastically decrease the chances of anyone sneaking in.  Not only would that be effective against the caronavirus but many other diseases as well.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think keeping diseased people out of the US is a good thing.

BUILD THE WALL!!

 

Rewards

My rule about rewards:

Reward people for working, they’ll work.

Reward people for doing nothing, they’ll do nothing.

Indeed, it is the foundation of the capitalists system.  When you reward people for doing nothing, it short-circuits the system.  Worse yet, you will frustrate those who work. It’s so simple that even the dummycrats should understand it.  Yet, they don’t.  I think it says something about their schools.

College Bribes

I have a solution that everyone would like about the college bribes… make it legal.  If someone with means wants into college and they don’t have the scores or grades, simply make them pay three times the tuition.  One third would go to pay the tuition.  One third would go toward paying a poor guy’s tuition.  One third would go toward retiring the debts encountered by delinquent  student loans.  Seems to me that would work for everyone.

Naw.  Too simple.  We need something far more complicated… something that costs a fortune in legal fees and makes lawyers a ton of money.  After all, we need to use all those big court buildings for something.
