Public Schools

When our forefathers set up our government, they did a wonderful job.  There are a few suggestions I have for a change to the constitution, but by and large, they did a much better job than I ever would.  It would stand to reason they had a good look at what they didn’t want.

Unfortunately, I do believe they overlooked one major thing.  I can understand it.  It could not have been foreseen in the day.  The hitch is that now it is very likely too late.  It would seem that the federal government has crept into our education system.

They gave us the first amendment to keep the government out of publishing papers.  However, when the government controls what is taught in our schools and colleges, it really amounts to the same thing.  Our education system is horrible at teaching as compared to most developed nations.  On the other hand, it is very good at indoctrinating.  Worse yet, they are bound and determined to prevent private schools wherever possible.

The instant that anyone brings up the possibility of a penny going to a private school, it is about the same sound as when I accidentally step on my dog’s tail.  They don’t even want any money paid toward such private schools being tax deductible.  As such, people who do send their children to private schools end up paying twice.

Certainly, there are two reasons they don’t want private schools to thrive.  Already, statistics show that kids who go to private schools, or those that are homeschooled, do so much far better.  Their academic measures are better in every way.  Also, they are generally better citizens.

To add to the indictment of the public schools, the private schools provide the better education at about half the costs.  Certainly, the NEA does not want that getting around.

If students that normally do poorly were to be put into private schools and they suddenly started doing well, it would really give the public schools a black eye.  They certainly would not want that.

Worse yet, they would never get a chance to indoctrinate any student permitted to go to private school.  It would take them out of the reach of the NEA and the government.  Now you know why the government wants your children in their schools.  And woe to the parent who complains about them being indoctrinated.  And woe to anyone who complains about the public system.

 

PANIC!!!

The dummycrats have done what they do best.  They wasted $30 million on a do-nothing investigation.  Now that it has become obvious, they know it is time to PANIC!!!  Now they are trying all sorts of things to distract the people.

They have no reason to fear though in the long run.  The media will do their part for them.  They will spread their lies as the farmer might spread feed for their animals.

Well, there is one thing some of the dummycrats need concern with.  Now that the investagation is over, the justice department can go after the real criminals.

The Barr Report

Those who have read any of my books will tell you I use my imagination.  Well, let me use a lot of imagination as I ask you a rhetorical question.  By the way, given the nature of the question, it will likely take a lot of imagination on your part too.

Imagine you go into work as you usually do.  Then, a little after lunch you get called in to see the boss.  He hands you a check and tells you that your services are no longer needed.

Most of us would be struck by the remark and right away, you would likely ask why.  It would stand to reason.  Most of us would want a reason.  Then he says, “I don’t want any child molesters working for me.”

“Impossible,” you say?  To be sure very unlikely, that is assuming you are not guilty.  Yet it would be very possible if it weren’t for one thing,  It is against the law for anyone to repeat anything that is said in a grand jury proceeding.

I am sure there are thousands of people who have served on grand juries and they know exactly what I am talking about.  The first thing I was told when I was selected was that I was not to repeat anything I heard during any of the sessions.  It is standard and one of the reasons is to keep things from happening as I described above.

You see, all sorts of accusations are made during those sessions, many of which are not true.  If someone made an accusation against you during a session, if they were allowed to repeat it, your reputation would be at risk and you might not even know where it came from.  By the way, the grand jury might not even be investigating you.  It might just be an offhand remark made by a witness who doesn’t like you.

It is one of at least three reasons that all proceedings are kept secret.  It protects the innocent person who is accused and others who are not being investigated.  It keeps your boss, your family and friends from being told the lie.  By the way, it even protects you if you are guilty.  Well, that isn’t totally true.  After all, you are innocent until you are convicted.  Nonetheless, I’m sure you get the idea.

I would say that those dummycrats are really stupid to demand the results of the Mueller Report including the minutes of the grand jury.  However, I am sure it is not stupidity.  I am sure they are well aware of the law.  I am sure it is covered during the first month or so of law school.  Therefore, I have to assume they want AG Barr to break the law.  Moreover, they clearly have no respect for the privacy of others.  They have no problems causing innocent people problems, embarrassment, or maybe even their job.  I have to assume it is just because they are dumb…and maybe a bit thoughtless as well.

Incidentally, even though most reporters are aware of the law, it would appear that few understand why.  I can sort of understand that.  Before I was selected for the grand jury, I didn’t know anything about it.  For that matter, I didn’t know what grand juries do.  Still, you would think professional reporters would take a few minutes to educate themselves.

It is true that the information can be made public by a judge, it is still a bad idea.  It sort of defeats the purposes of the law.

A Bump in the Road

Several years ago, before I retired, I was coming home from work.  It was about two in the morning and I was on I-55 headed south.  Just before I reached the I-240 junction, cars started slowing.  Traffic was sparse but I took the hint and started slowing too.

I didn’t slow enough, though I did see the reason why the slowdown.  Apparently, someone ran into a lamp post and it fell across the interstate… all three lanes.  I hit the break and right away realized not soon enough.  Knowing that I didn’t want to hit the post with my breaks on, I let off and coasted over the thing.

I just knew I was going to be looking at major repairs but I was wrong.  The Chevy HHR took it in stride and it didn’t even need re-alignment.  I am still driving the car and I’ve likely put 30 thousand miles on it since.  I can’t say I have been really happy with the car but I do have to admit it has a real good suspension system.

It would appear that the dummycrats have hit a bump in the road too.  They saw the bump in the road from a long way off and still hit it dead on.  The obstruction of justice is still slightly unsettled but that whole colluding thing is done and settled.  That boat is not going to float.  Four full scale investigations have found nothing.  Even though the deck was stacked against President Trump in this last investigation, they still found nothing.  Certainly, if there was anything they’d not hide it.  If the dummycrats keep trying to run over that bump, the only thing they will do is lose their wheels.

By the way, there are many in the media that owe president an apology.  Somehow, I don’t think that will happen.  They will have to admit that they were wrong and that does not fit in their agenda.  It would get in their way of one world government.

BUILD THE WALL!!!!

Established Fact

We now have the result of at least three congressional committee investigations and a two-year investigation by a bunch of anti-Trump lawyers.  They have all said there was no collusion.  That about established it as fact.  Then again, as with the adage, the dummycrats keep opening their mouths and proving themselves fools.  They keep that up and their stupidity will become casual to the most obvious observer.

Then again, maybe they aren’t so foolish.  It is possible they know exactly what they are doing and they believe they will manage to deceive enough that they will win the votes they need for their elections.  Of course, they would have a little help with their illegal aliens and a few dead folks.  (In Chicago and Orange County, Calif., they proved that they are not above using such methods.  It is documented.) Oh, yes.  They will also have the help of the major new papers and TV news networks on their side.  Does anyone doubt who The New York Times will favor?

President Trump’s #1 Accomplishment

President Trump has accomplished so much that it is difficult to determine just which is his greatest accomplishment.  While he has not yet completely replaced Obama Care, it is all but gone.  In a year or so,  it will no longer exist; other than in our memories, or more accurately, our nightmares.

Certainly, he has done wonders for our economy.  He has brought back a bunch of jobs, particularly in manufacturing.  Some might not like it, but he has challenged the countries of Russia, China and Iran.  He pulled us out of The Paris Climate Conference, which would have been disastrous for our economy.

I am sure I have left out one or two things, but I have come to the conclusion that we have overlooked the one thing that was most important.  I say ‘we’ because, until this evening, I never considered it.

To the best of my knowledge, no one else has mentioned it, leastwise not directly.  In indirect ways, many have talked around it.  Some have even denied it, though they had no idea of it.

Actually, in a way, President Trump has come close to speaking on it, though I am sure it was not his intention.  His accomplishment will change things forever, regardless of anything else he has done.  It will change this nation for both liberals and conservatives, for Republicans and dummycrats.  The dummycrats would like to deny it, but, when and if confronted, they will have to admit it.

President Trump has exposed the media bias.  No more will people ever trust the news media.  Some will not trust the big newspapers and networks.  Many will not trust the conservative outlets.  To be sure, no one will ever have the total trust of all of us, as did Walter Cronkite.

Pravda v Our Mainstream News Media

Pravda printed propaganda because the Soviet Union made them, more or less at the point of a gun.

The American mainstream media prints propaganda because they want to.

Other than that, I can’t see a whole lot of difference. They both bolster the benefits of socialism and rail the horrors of capitalism.  They both say how wonderful it is for one central government to run everything and the horrors of individual thought.

Remember these things:

1. Deceit does not always require a lie.  Sometimes an element of truth is more deceiving than the lie.

2. For those who like their welfare: Not everyone who gives you things is your friend.  Often, gifts are given with an element of control.  Those who give you bread today, seek to tell your children how to live, and think.  (Our forefathers gave us freedom.  Do you want to give your children bondage and tyranny.)

3. We ought to do that which is right, regardless of the penalty.  We ought not do that which is wrong, regardless of the reward.

To be sure, President Trump is trying to do that which saves lives and protects our freedom.  The dummycrats are doing all they can to stand in his way.  It is because of the open border that people seek to enter illegally, often costing their lives and freedom.  They are in favor of laws that act like magnets, such as welfare for all and college for illegal aliens that encourage their long and dangerous trek.  They make it almost impossible to send them back, which often endangers the lives of those who legally live here.  And, by the way, it also endangers the lives of those who live here illegally.

It is the dummycrats that offer free things, all the while sizing control of the government.  Once they control our government, the welfare will stop and the tyranny will begin.  It is the pattern.  It is the way it was in Russia.  It is the way it was in China.  It was what happened in Cuba and Venezuela.  Now people who live in these countries risk their lives to live here.  Once we become as they are, where do we go to seek freedom?  To what land do we go to to think as we want without the thought police looking over our shoulder.

You say it won’t happen here as it did there.  Have you taken a good look at our college campuses?  The liberals already rule those institutions, there ones that are supposed to encourage free thought.  The government is already telling us who we can do business with.  The thought police are right around the corner.  Soon they will tell us what we can or can’t preach in church.  For that matter, they just might try to do away with the churches altogether.

One world government is what the socialists seek.  It is what Karl Marx taught.  It was his ultimate goal.  It was to do away with war.  But when the government that rules the world is bad, what recourse do freedom lovers have?
