Unmasking Masks

It would seem that, with exceptions, masks have become optional. Maybe, soon, they will be history.

It does not surprise me. If there was a reason to wear masks, they have had two years to prove it. No one did. On the contrary, I have heard reports of studies disproving their effectiveness.

I guess that was the reason for the judge’s ruling. I guess that is the reason the decision was not contested. I would suspect it won’t be long most of us will be maskless henceforth.

Next, hopefully, the mandatory vaccines will fade into obscurity. Then, maybe they will start allowing effective treatments. Seems to me that there are a few we already know of that work. There are even a couple inexpensive ones.

Debris !

After our recent snow, our trees lost several limbs. In itself this wasn’t the half. Some of them, some of the biggest ones landed on my storage shed. What a mess. Oh, yes, a couple of them totally mutilated my gate, which cost me me $200 and a couple of afternoons.

The steel shed, though it is now useless, did protect everything inside from physical damage. I am now considering 3 or 4 options to replace it. The thing is, no matter, I must first remove the ton, literally, of debris on and around it.

I looked here and there for some assistance, but it is to small a disaster to call FEMA. It’s one of those in between things. It’d be, maybe better had it been worse. (Now figure that irony)

So, every now and then, when I feel like it and weather permits, I take my rake, shovel and electric chainsaw out and work until I can’t. At 72, that’s not long.

For those that think I’m complaining, I’m not.

I saw a middle-aged man shoveling debris in Ukraine. He has every right to complain. He has a right to complain about Putin and his army. He has a right to complain about politicians who can and should have helped, but are more concerned about climate change. He had a lot to complain about.

Instead, he goes about his task. He is possibly feeling the pains of loss of loved ones and/or friends. He might possibly be wishing someone had sent more weapons and planes. It is not likely, but possible he wished the dems hadn’t cheated on our election. Even he likely knows that there wouldn’t be a war if Trump had been in the Oval Office. He would know that because Putin waited for Biden. Only then was there war.

No, I don’t complain about a little weather. There are many things that are far worse.

False Flag Operation

Over and over we hear about a possible false flag operation to come out of Russia.  I don’t know.  It sort of seems plausible.  I SOP for Russians.  I know because I have seen it a  number of times.  At the time they used Pravda to try to convince the world.  In some situations, they have used the New York Times, who were more than willing accomplices.

However, it is not my purpose to talk of Russian false flags.  Indeed, I just might be wrong but that whole January 6 operation might have been a false flag operation.  The FOCs certainly are not above such antics.  Moreover, it does have a number of the FOC earmarks.

I saw videos of men encouraging the operation.  They were there and now they aren’t.  Though they are on videos, no one seems to want to talk to them.  If anyone did talk to them, no one wants to say.

They certainly took max advantage of the situation.  They have illegally incarcerating people, many for over a year without trial.  They have launched a false investigation into anyone and every who knows President Trump…without any evidence.  The fourth amendment has no bearing.  Even worse, the defendants have no right to discovery.  That sounds illegal to me.  Sort of sounds like the trials held in places like Venezuela.  Sort of looks like a kangaroo court, if I have ever seen one.  It’s the sort of thing done by back-wood sheriffs and judges you see in the movies all the time.

Moreover, there were no efforts by Nancy to stop the crowd, though she had to know about them, she refused the help of the National Guard.

Finally, the most incriminating.  Police seemed to be beckoning them to enter, even waving to the crowd to enter.  No one seemed to try to stop them from entering.  No one held up a hand and said stop, please.  I saw one policeman running up some stairs a number of times.  My first thought was that he was running for his life.  As I studied it more closely, he looked more like a tour guide.

Certainly, I don’t put it past the FBI to be part of it.  Look what they did for four years, illegally with no proof to President Trump.

However, time continues to march by.  In a few months Nancy will lose her gavel and then they will conduct a real investigation into to it all.

Hint, Nancy: You just might want to buy a ticket to China.  We won’t be able to touch you and I am sure they will welcome you.  On the other hand, she just might have to give up her favorite flavor of ice cream.

Allegiance

It is the third word in the pledge of allegiance that I learned when I was four, sixty eight years ago. At the time, I had no idea what it meant. After all these years, nine in the Marines, I have a pretty good idea of its meaning, maybe more than most.

It is a word taken for granted. Many don’t ever take the time or effort to truly understand what it means. as they recite the words, they say them by rote, they pay little attention to them. Until recently, almost all legally new citizens know the meaning of the word, mostly because of what they left behind. However, more and more frequently, naturalized citizens pay their allegiance to two flags. They never truly let go of the one that represents the nation they left.

Most have no problem with that, but it irritates me when I see the Flag of a foreign county flying in this country. We speak of those special men who fought to secure our liberty and freedom during World War II. I assure you, most of them would not like to see a foreign flag flying in our country, especially when those flying it have so much disdain for Old Glory. If they like this country so much, why do they insist on hanging on to what they left behind? If they like what they left behind, why do they come here?

To be sure, most will tell you it is money, although they say it is for a good job. And so it is that we purchase their allegiance for the price of a 9 to 5 job. You take the job away and they will head south just as fast as they can. It is all about the money.

Some have seen fit to give these people the right to vote, not because they deserve it but because of the increased chances of gaining office. So they want those who have absolutely no allegiance to vote them into office. It makes me doubt the true allegiance of the office seeker. Do they seek office to do us good or do they seek office for the power and glitter.

Me. It turns my stomach to see such things even suggested. For me, to vote should call for total allegiance to city, county, state and country. Anything less is a distortion of the vote and I assure you those that fought in Europe or the South Pacific would find the odor pungent and nauseating. Moreover, it speaks loudly of the candidate’s allegiance. If they aren’t aware of it, someone should explain it to them.

Besides, do we want those who are proud of the Russian or Chinese flag voting in our elections. Such is preposterous on its face. It should never be considered for a second.

The Dem’s Tightrope

The Dem’s, aka friends of the criminals, need to take care. They keep putting pressure on a couple of their own in hopes of ridding the Senate of the filibuster. They walk a dangerous tightrope. If they apply too much pressure, they could lose one or two senators from their ranks. Even if they lose one, they stand in danger of losing their 50 majority. This is true even should they become independent. They would only have 49 (maybe 48) senators while the Republicans would have 50. That would mean the majority would possibly go to the Republicans.

I am sure that most realize what that means. However, I am especially sure that Fauci knows. If such a thing happens, he will likely buy a ticket to China. If he doesn’t he will wish he did. It is quite possible, maybe plausible that he will face committee meetings that world will find out his part in the pandemic. China will be the only nation on earth where he might be safe after that. Then again, he might not be safe there either.

As an aside, it is also conceivable that those senator(s) just might be joined by other senators who will be clinging to the seats. This might be followed by a few representatives jumping the proverbial ship. Ol’ Nancy can’t afford much of that. The next thing she knows, she might lose her gavel before the mid-terms.

As an aside to the aside, the occupier and the vice occupier will not like that… not at all. Neither will the squad.

The Best Place

I write this for one simple reason. Some people just can’t understand the sudden rise in crime. 1st let me suggest a couple of solutions for those who have stores that are subject to the recent crime wave. Armor your business so that it is difficult for the criminals to enter. That way, the criminals will do criminaling somewhere else. Hiring security is OK, but in the current environment, it will do little good and you just might get sued. Even when you when the suit, it will still cost you an arm and a leg. The lawyers have seen to that.

Then you build a solid anti-room for entering and one for exiting your business. This will ensure that only 1 or 2 at a time enter. While they are in the anti-room, require an ID and credit card. Notify them that they will be charged for anything they take or damage. Insist they sign an agreement before letting them into the area where you have your merchandise. Finally, before they leave, search them completely to make sure they are not taking what they have not paid for.

OR you can simply close the business and go to a city where such problems don’t exist.

This may not completely solve your problems but it just might force the cities to solve theirs.

NOW as for solving the problem.

It is simpler than you might imagine. Put the criminals in prison and keep them there as long as possible. Even if they are not rehabilitated, their criminal endeavors will be greatly reduced. Besides, it will put teeth to the saying that crime does not pay. It would seem, right now, it does.

As for why those in charge don’t already do this, that is simple too. They don’t want to. Those in charge of locking up the criminals are the Friends Of Criminals (FOC). Indeed, some are criminals. Why would they want to lock up their friends when it enhances their bank accounts to let their criminal friends do criminal things? As an aside, they are also friends of lawyers. Think of all the money they get out of it all.

So, instead of going after criminals, they go after those who go after criminals in every way they can. To be sure, they don’t like it when they are so embarrassed by honest people making them look bad. Besides, it is cutting into their profit. [Has anyone noticed? The Clinton slush fund(so-called charity) has drastically shrunk since they no longer have any influence to sell. On the other hand, I would expect that Joe will be a multi-billionaire when he leaves office, whether that is vertically or horizontally.]

Just remember, it is about power and money. Those who go into office without it, generally have plenty as they leave. Those that do leave without with power and money, we can truly label as honest, usually. To be sure, politics is a dog-eat-dog world. Sometimes, even the dishonest ones get eaten by the dishonest ones.

To go back to the main theme. The best way to have thriving businesses, keep the criminals in prison! It is the best place for them and keeping them there is the best for the honest folk. If a few lawyers go hungry, maybe that’s best too.

Speaking of criminals, why isn’t Fauci behind bars where he can’t invent any more viruses?

The Summary of the Last 4 Dem Presidents

Obama forced Obama Care down our throats with the help of Nancy. (what a pair) Of course, being a former pres, he doesn’t need Obama Care. Isn’t he the lucky one. He can use his savings to build that sea wall he is going to need when the seas start getting deeper.

The only thing Jimmy Carter did was to give away the Panama Canal. Really wish we had that back.

Bill Clinton’s fame to claim is that he felt our pain. I’m pretty sure he didn’t. Regardless, he certainly doesn’t now. He’s living high on the hog and has a nice big house. If you ask me, he belongs in the big house.

Now Joe. I guess his main theme is that he has specialized in causing pain. The bad part is that I don’t know if he even knows it. Could someone please tell him?

Comments on Recent Elections

It would appear to me that the dems would learn their lesson concerning CRT, mandatory vacs and mandatory masks. Certainly, intelligent people would see the error of their ways and reconsider their goals. Not the dems. Not an intelligent bone in the bunch of them. Instead, they only push on faster, harder. As near as I can tell, they want utter destruction of the US before the 2022 elections, at which time the conservatives will attempt to turn things around right. The problem is that either Biden or Kamala will still be in The White House. Well, at least we might be able to slow them down. We might even be able to bring them to stop until 2024.

One odd thing I have noticed, the mainstream media must have seen the car crash coming and they didn’t say a thing. Indeed they only offered encouragement. Now they have become a party to the event and they will not be believed again for many decades.

When I was a kid, we had a saying, “Everything you say about me bounces off me and sticks to you.” It was childish but it did serve its purpose at the time. Yet, it would seem that the media is accusing the republicans of everything the dems do. I mean, CRT is racist and is the absolute opposite of Martin Luther King’s teaching. And, weather they admit it or not, the dems teach it or something like it in every school they control.

Moreover, it is the dems that stand in the way of allowing the African-American kids to go the best schools, allowing only the elite FOCs to go to the better schools. I would say it is like the pot calling the kettle black, but it is neither accurate nor appropriate. The old saying assumes that the pot is as bad as the kettle, whereas, in this case, the dems are far worse than the republicans. Not only do they not offer a better education, they stand in the way of permitting the republicans to provide a better education. For obvious reasons, that is worse than racism. It hampers the kids from learning and it incites anger and racism. It is exactly the way communist work. First, they destroy by causing division. They create hate and discontent to the point of destroying a country. Then they build it back the way they want. It is exactly the way they did it in Cuba and Venezuela.

Now look. If things continue to go they way they are, the dems will control a much larger version of Venezuela. You think we have supply problems now. A few decades with the dems in control will teach you just how bad things can be. By the way, most of us will not need to worry about the cost of new cars. There won’t be any, unless you are one of the elite. A car wouldn’t be much good to you, anyway. You won’t be able to buy fuel or electricity for it.

Watch Out, Words HAVE MEANINGS

I watched an interview. I will leave the names out. They are not important. The important things are the words. The person being interview said we need to make sure only legal residents should be permitted to vote. Actually, that is incorrect. There are many legal residents that should not be allowed to vote.

First, not all legal residents are citizens and only registered citizens of age should be permitted to vote, and then only in their state and precinct. No one should be permitted to vote outside their precinct. It is sort of the way the founding fathers intended it. We do not need to have Mexicans or Canadians determining the outcome of our elections. Moreover, we do not need people in one county determining the outcome of another county’s election.

Just remember, a resident is not always a citizen. It seems sort of picky but it is so, so important.

Canyons and Debts

I’m not exactly sure of the year. Might have been 1984, the year the Olympics were in L. A. I have relatives in California and I went out to visit them. It was convenient that it was the year of the Olympics because McDonald’s provided prizes for medals the US won. Because the Soviets were boycotting the Olympics, (Likely just because we boycotted the Olympics the prior time) the US meddled in far more sports. Hence, McDonald’s payed for about a fourth of our food.

Considering that there were four us us, two of which were young teens, that was a big help. Every time we stopped for a meal, we had scratch-offs from our precious meal. That isn’t to say we always ate at McDonald’s, but as I said, they did help a lot.

When we reached Flagstaff, we spent the night. Then, seven in the a.m., we headed north to the Grand Canyon. Considering we were passing nearby, why not? We might not get another chance.

After zig-zaging a while and climbing, we found ourselves on a large flat plateau. Every now and then, we saw signs, “Land for sale, $1,000 an acre.” I actually considered buying a couple of few acres. I was hardly rich but I could have afforded a few thousand.

I wondered why they were almost giving the land away. As luck would have it, a short time before we reached the Grand Canyon, there was a McDonald’s. We decided to stop and turn in a few of our scratch-offs there. Then, as we entered, we saw the explanation for the cheap land. The sign said, “Because we have to haul all our water here, we must charge a little more for some of the items on the menu.”

So there it was. The place was right next to the Colorado River. Yet, it is one of the driest places in the US. Go figure. Still, over the years, I have considered, if I were wealthy, I might buy a few acres there. I don’t guess I’d need to concern myself with the neighbors much. I mean, while I was there, the only folks I saw were mostly on the road. They were either on the way to or from the Grand Canyon.

It wasn’t a long way out of the way, but it did take a while to get there. Then, when we arrived, the wife and kids were busy watching the squirrels. Never figured on that. Here we were at one of the biggest canyons in the US and they were fascinated with squirrels.

I mean, we have squirrels at home, a lot of them. Well, I must admit, they were fearlessly running up and down the wall of the canyon. I mean, I didn’t want to get so close to it, and the baby squirrels were right at home on the edge of the cliff.

We moved on to another lookout point where we could oversee a plateau that was about half way to the actual bottom of the canyon. After looking for a while, the person next to me said, “Hey! there are people down there.”

I looked down there, and then at the person who spoke. “Where,” I asked? “I don’t see any.”

In a short time, he pointed them out. If they had not been moving, I’d still not have seen them. It does give a person a little perspective of just how deep that canyon is. I mean, the numbers simply do not do it any justice. Those folks were only half way down and I didn’t see them.

Later, I found out that people are allowed to walk down there. However, before they do, they must register and go through an orientation. In it, they warn the would be hikers, it is sort of like climbing a mountain in reverse. Once you go down into the canyon, it is far more difficult climbing back up. Therefore, be careful about exceeding your abilities.

As I think back over it, I realize it is much like debt. It is easy to climb down into it. Working your way back out… not so much.

Those senators and representatives don’t seem to have figured that out.
