An Instant Change In Direction

I have been told a time or two that nothing can make an instantaneous change in direction.  For Instance, consider a baseball thrown at 100 mph.  After it is hit by a bat, it goes 100 mph in virtually the opposite direction.

The ball takes some time to make that change in direction.  Moreover, at some instant in time, the ball stands still.  I suppose, for a fraction of a second, the ball must decelerate to nothing.  Then, it spends, likely about the same time accelerating to 100 mph, but in the opposite direction.

Of course, we humans see it as instantaneous.  It all happens so fast we can’t follow the change.  Even the mathematician would have a difficult time with it.  Determining just how long it took the ball to make the turnaround would be very difficult with even the best slow-motion camera.  I don’t know.  I don’t know if it could be measured or calculated at all.

One thing I do know.  The change in direction is slow compared to those dummycrats when it comes to determining if a woman has been sexually abused or not.  Consider, the Clintons.  He admitted guilt and lying about it.  Then, his wife and all the dummycrats got behind him and said, “It’s okay.”  …and of course, any other woman that made any accusations were instantly turned into trailer-park trash.  Hillary simply waved her magic wand and the threat to her husband disappeared faster than that homer I was considering earlier.

Then, Judge Cavanaugh is accused of all sorts of sordid things with absolutely no evidence…

BANG!!

The ball instantly stops and heads the opposite way.  The man is, of course, absolutely guilty and should never be allowed to be dogcatcher.

Then Bidden is accused with some evididence…

BANG!!

The ball reverses again, this time faster.


I’ve figured it out.  Justice is far simpler than I ever thought.  If the man has a D after his name, he didn’t do it.  Even if he did, it doesn’t matter.

If the man has an R after his name, he is automatically guilty and should be hung from the nearest tree.

That settles it.  If I am ever accused of anything, I will make sure there is a D after my name.  That will result in a short trial, if any, even if I’m guilty.

I figure that a D after my name would give me a license to do all sorts of things.

Then again, I wouldn’t be the first to use that tactic.  Somehow or other, I don’t think I would be the last.

If you don’t think it works, consider the Keeting five.  In this case, McCain and four dummycrats got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.  The result was the downfall of the savings and loan system.  Had it not been for the four dummycrats, McCain would have gotten what he deserved, prison time.  Then again, they could hardly throw him in jail and let the others go.  So they let all five go.

Unlike most, I remember the incident.  I was in my mid-twenties. I had money in Lincoln Savings, one of the institutions McCain robbed.  (only he used no gun or mask)  I thought sure that they would all go to jail.  It was the first time I got a good look at how things really work in politics.

The way things are today, they would have still let the others go free.  However, because McCain had an R after his name, he would have gone to prison, or at least he would have lost his seat in the Senate.

Experiments

I can’t get this quote exact, but I think Giuliani expressed his and my thoughts about using hydorcloroquine in fighting the caronavirus.  Sorry;  my steno skills are very poor and I just heard it once.  He said something to the effect that it is better to provide the experimental drug instead of letting the people just die.  As I have said before, that should be casual to the most obvious observer.

By the way, you might have noticed that the news is about nothing but the virus in one way or the other.  I am a real news junky, but I am not in favor of following the one thing and ignore all else.

For those tired of listening to the news and watching all the TV movies over and over, I am allowing readers to order free Kindle copies of “A Shoulder to Cry on,” “Big City Detective,” and “Perfekt, Almost.”  (By the way, I did use the “k” in perfect intentionally.  It is supposed to be an eye catcher and it does give something of a hint as to what is between the covers.

To order the books, go to my Author’s Page by entering,

http://www.amazon.com/author/story_teller

in the URL box (usually in the upper left part of your browser.  You might also be able to simply click on the above line, but I’m making no promises.  With my computers operating with Windows, it works.  However, I have a pad that it fails with every time.  I don’t know why.  If you have a Kindle, you can simply do a search on “Ben Rhodes,” and you will likely be able to find most of my books.  Should you find any books by others, please ignore them.

There is a synopsis with each book, but for the sake of those who want a quick rundown, they are below.

“A Shoulder to Cry On”

This is the first of a two book set.

A woman just finishes college and she has a good job.  She thinks she has it made, but then her whole world starts falling down around her.  She would really like to have a shoulder to cry on, but the only one that seems to be available, belongs to a man who she feels untrustworthy.

“Big City Detective”

This is the second of the set.

In the first book, we are introduced to a New York City detective.  In this book, the big city detective is going to a small town to take over as police chief.  The problem is, before he can get there, there has been a murder, the first ever since the town was formed.  …and no one seems to know what to do.

“Perfekt, Almost”

This is not part of a set or series, but if you enjoy the previous two books, you will likely like this one.

In this book a new deputy marshal arrives for his first assignment, which is in San Diego.  The weather is beautiful.  The city has no lack of things to do.  To the east he can go up into the mountains.  Of course, San Diego does have some of the nicest beaches anywhere.  For those who like a visit to the desert, one is just a short trip away.  It’s a perfect assignment, almost.

The books will be available on Friday, the 10th.  Hope you enjoy them.  If you do, tell others.  Like them or not, please let me know.  Send me a brief note to Kaay@att.net.  I don’t mind stiff complaints, I even appreciate them, but please keep the language G rated.

 

There Is a Difference

Those who have read my past post will be surprised when I say that I hope the House impeaches President Trump.  Understand though, if they don’t, he will be assumed, “not guilty.”  On the other hand, if he is tried in the Senate, he will be proved innocent.  And, to be sure there is a difference.

Besides, it will be nice to see many of his accusers squirm when put under oath, and on the witness stand.  It will also be interesting to see how the mainstream media will paint it.  Without doubt, many of the so-called journalists will be shown for what they are.

Definition of a Milli-second

Some time ago, I had a laugh when I heard a definition for the millisecond as the time between when the traficlight turns green and the when the person in the car behind you honks his horn.  I suppose this is still true but we need to add another entry that just might be a little more accurate.  I have observed that it is now about the time between when someone goes on a shooting rampage and the time the dummycrats call for gun laws. (You might notice I waited a while before I wrote anything on the subject.  I actually have some respect for the survivors of those who were killed and those who were wounded.)

I find this very disrectful.  Then again, why should I expect the dummycrats to be respectful. That would require some intellegence.

It is just another reason I call them dummycrats.  None of the laws they suggest would have stopped any of the shootings.  I might add that one man in California killed two men with a knife.  Moreover, he took a gun from one of those he stabbed.  No gun law would have stopped those killings.  Moreover, had he not been stopped, he could have used the stolen gun to kill many more.

By the way, lest anyone forget, one of the most successful mass killers in this country used a truck full of fertilizer.  Two terrorists used pressure cookers and likely leaned the method on the web.

When I was in the Marines, I carried an M16 rifle, the military version of the AR15.  I suppose you might call the M16 an assault weapon, but it is capable of both semi and fully automatic.  An AR15 is not an assault rifle.  It only looks like one.  It is strictly semi-automatic.  There are many other rifles that fire semi-automatic.

The truth of the matter is, all known; the dummycrats simply want to rid the country of guns.  They don’t like the second amendment.  Actually, they don’t much like any of The Constitution.  It is why they keep trying to alter it or ignore it.  Oddly, they even use it to destroy it.  The truth is socialism is not compatible with The Constitution.  It is why the dummycrats keep trying to do away with it.

Let’s take the example of the First Amendment.  This is where you can say what you want, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their ideas.

Now I have one more definition for you: Racist.  This is when someone does or says something the dummycrats (specifically the squad) don’t like.  The label is applied automatically, sort of, like when a knee jerks when a doctor applies his little mallet to it.  By the way, using the term requires about the same amount of intelligence as the doctor’s mallet.  About the same intelligence of the dummycrat.

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.
