The Question Not Asked

Over the years I’ve noticed a pattern when politicians are interviewed.  Frequently, when they are asked a question they don’t want to answer, they reply to a question not asked.  The reply is often a reply to a question to which they would rather reply and it invariably is far more wordy than necessary.  That way, they only talk about what they want to and it minimizes the time for other questions.   …and by the way, no question is ever answered yes or no.  The reply is far too brief allowing for more questions.

For instance;

Q: On a clear day, is the sky blue?

Politician’s reply: Science is an important subject and we should all pay attention to…  and so on and so on.

A proper reply: Yes.

Revisiting Old Posts

I made two posts ages ago; don’t know exactly when.  I do believe I should revisit them, considering recent events.

In one of the posts, I suggested that we maintain a steel and aluminum industry within our country for security.  The last thing we need in a war wherein we must, beg or steal our steel and aluminum from the enemy.  I made the suggestion before President Trump required it and now it appears I was far more correct than I thought.

In light of recent events, I might suggest that the thought be broadened.  With the recent virus outbreak, we almost had to beg supplies from China.  That would not be a good thing.

Maybe what we ought to form a committee and establish a list of things that we must maintain for security purposes.  Also, maybe we should reestablish our space program so that we no longer need to hitch rides with Russia.  If they say HET (Russian word for no, pronounced nyet) we would have a new meaning for the expression “up the creek without a paddle.”


In another post, I suggested that our senators and representatives remain in their own state or district and perform their business through tel-conferencing.  I gave a long list of reasons why this would be a good idea, not the least of which was that it would make it more difficult for the lobbyists to bribe our congressmen.

Again, it would appear that I was more right than I thought.  If they had taken my advice then the virus would have not hindered their business.

On the other hand, there are some who would say that slowing their efforts just might be a good thing.

Either way, I can’t imagine what might have happened if we had an epidemic break out on the floor of either the House or Senate.  If several were to become badly sick, or even die, it might have caused real problems, maybe panic.  It is no wonder that they have all decided to hide out in their own homes.

Well, that may not have been the real reason at all.  Maybe it was a decision made of cowardice.

Regardless, the switch to computerized meetings would be simple to implement and security would be easy to manage.  Just make sure all their computers ran off ROM.

 

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.

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.

Five Letter Words

There are two five letter words I associate with the dummycrats these days.  The first one is power.

To be sure, it is their ultimate goal.  Everything they do or say, true or false, is to gain power.

As for the second word.  Well, it only truly becomes associated with them when President Trump is re-elected.  That word is…


PANIC!!!

 

Without the presidency, they will not achieve their goal, POWER.

It is the reason that they take the side of the so called victim when a conservative judge is appointed.  It is also the reason they take the part of Biden when he is the one accused.

To be sure, this side of eternity, no one will know who is guilty or not.  It just is that there was absolutely no proof in the case of the justice and there is very substantial proof in the case of Biden.

One thing is absolutely true; if Biden has to withdraw his hat at this point, it will almost guarantee President Trump’s victory.  Then again, given Biden’s current abilities in debates, they may as well panic now.

Location, Location, Location

I am told that the term, “old adage,” is redundant.  The word adage means, old saying.  So when we say, old adage we are saying, “old, old saying.”

Okay.  I get it.  So, I hope you’ll excuse my redundancy when I say that the old adage is location, location location.  Personally, I agree.  I am neither a professional business man nor do I claim any training in real estate.

Regardless, I think the guy who originally said it is more correct than he realized.  You see, almost every day I do business with someone.  When I do, location has a lot to do with where I spend my dollars.

Therefore, let me break down the adage.  The word, location is used three times.  Indeed, it has three meanings.  First, there is ease of access.  Second, there is security.  The third meaning has to do with parking.

Please permit me a word or two… maybe even three on each usage of the word.

As I said, first is access.  Whenever I decide to go to a store, I generally go somewhere nearby.  If there is a place within a few miles, why should I go 50.  Okay.  I’m being a little extreme, but I’m sure you see my point.

While distance is certainly a consideration, there is more to access than distance.  Do I really want to fight traffic for 5 miles or is it better to go 8 miles in light traffic.  Personally, I would much prefer to drive an extra few miles rather than face the traffic of downtown Memphis.  (Oddly, I have driven in downtown Los Angeles and I found the traffic reasonable.  Then again, that was a few decades ago.)

The second consideration is security.  Do I want to do business in an area where I feel safe or do I want to face the possibility of being mugged on the way back to my car.  I don’t know about others, but I find most downtown areas a little unnerving.  Every time that I must go into Memphis, I generally keep my head on a swivel and I remain a good distance from all those around me: black, white or purple.  In a matter of security, I am color-blind.

The third consideration, parking, can be the primary one.  If I can’t park within easy walking distance of the business, all else is moot.  In my own opinion, this is the primary reason that most downtown areas fail.  I get into downtown Memphis and then I have to pay through the nose for somewhere to park.  On the other hand, there might not be a place to park even if I’m willing to pay through the nose.

I mean, as I say, I’m not an expert; however, I do know why I don’t go downtown unless I have a good reason.

…and yet, when they built the basketball arena, when they built the new baseball park, they built them in downtown Memphis.  (in my opinion, dumb)  If there is a baseball game and a basketball game on the same day, you just might be better off staying home.

I’m not dumb.  I know why they built the facilities downtown.  It helps to bring people to the downtown area.  Then again, I used to go to see baseball games all the time.  Since they moved the park downtown I saw one game.  I have never seen the inside of the basketball arena.  I have no desire to spend an hour or more fighting traffic to get there and then spend another half hour looking for someplace to park.  Then of course, while walking to and from, I am in constant fear of some drug addict  deciding that he needs my money more than me.

I have gone to several Dodger games when I lived in Orange County.  It was quite a drive, maybe thirty miles.  However, it was almost all freeway.  Within the park, understandably, congestion was immense.  If my memory serves me correctly, the stadium seat around 50-thousand.  On the way out, once I left the parking lot, I was on the freeway, traveling at freeway speeds.  Oh. By the way; there was always somewhere to park.  Attendants provided organized assistance.  It worked very smooth.

Sometimes, people understand the location adage.  Sometimes people don’t.  It is what happens when government makes the decisions.  Dodger Stadium was built with private money.  The location was decided by businessmen, not the city council.  It was built without public money, so there was very little waste.

So, when they decided to change our healthcare, who designed it, the government… Obama and Pelosi; two people who know nothing about medicine.  Now, years later, it is still messed up.
