L.L.P.

Life, Liberty, and Property.  They are three things worth fighting for.

Originally I was going to use Land for the third word but it simply wasn’t quite inclusive enough.

When life is considered, it is very important that a person  consider more than his own life.  There are the lives of family, friends and countrymen.  When our forefathers went to war to be free from England, their thoughts certainly were for more than themselves.  Those who gave their lives in the Pacific and on the shores of Normandy had more than their own lives in mind.

Liberty is the one of the three that cannot be measured but it is just as important.  Indeed, it is for liberty that our forefathers died.  Liberty is one of those things that makes life worth living.  To be sure, living without liberty is no more than existing.

In the US Constitution, one of the amendments insures that property cannot be taken from us without good reason.  And, of course, when property is taken, the government must pay proper compensation.  This certainly applies to land but also any property.  It gives individuals something to work for and if the government can just take it from us without reason, it would destroy the desire to work.

In a true communists regime, none of the above is permitted.  All is shared, even with those who won’t work.  As such, all socialists government must establish methods that force people to work… either that or provide some other reward.  Then again, all rewards may be taken back by such a government at any time.

If you truly study the Constitution for a while, you will easily see that before the socialists can take over this country, they must first destroy the Constitution.  The Constitution and socialism cannot co-exist within the same country.

And so it is that communists use the Constitution to subdue the US.  They also use deceit and lies.  On top of that, they use fear in the form of political correctness.  After all, if you say anything against socialism, you are in danger of losing friends or you job.    Failure to see this now may very well lead to losing your life, your liberty, or your property.  Conceivably, you could lose all three.

In addition they drive wedges between segments of the populace.  They make the poor hate the rich and they take advantage of the anger of the minorities.  They love to promise Utopia but they will only give you a modified feudal system.  Only those inside the government will have any privileges.

It is time to put the socialists in their place.  It will take votes.  It is not enough to beat them by a little.  We must beat them soundly.  We must do this in  2020 and in every election afterword.  We must do this nationally, statewide and locally.  It is the problem with those socialists; they are persistent.  They keep coming back.  They have taken our schools.  They have taken our unions.  They have taken over the news media and they are fixing to take our government… if we don’t stop them.

If they should takeover, their is but one reason.  It will be that they caught the voters sleeping on the job.  Then, when they awake, they will realize the nightmares have just begun.

The Virus and the Schools

There is one point of confusion I have about the demand that the dummycrats have about the keeping the schools closed.  President Trump says he will withhold money from the school systems that stay closed and the dummycrats, especially the teacher’s unions complain.

To my way of thinking, why would the schools need money if they remain closed?

It seems to me that the only people who suffer economically from this epidemic are those who don’t receive their checks from the government.  Why should they be immune from all calamity.

During the downturn of 2008, I took a 10% cut in pay.  Then later, I took another 5% cut.  Then, later the company that I worked for, was no more.  During all this time, others lost jobs.  Others took cuts in pay.  Yet, I don’t think one federal employee took a loss in pay.  I don’t think one federal employee lost his job.  Very likely, it was the same for the state and county governments.  Indeed, I heard of many instances of teachers complaining of a lack in pay increases.

And now, they want money for closing schools?  Really.  Me thinks I smell something rotten.

If this be true in the K through 12 schools, I am sure it applies even more for the universities.  All through the worst of the economic woes, the colleges kept increasing their tuitions yearly.  It was as if, in some way, they decided they were privileged.  Something tells me that someone should clean those old halls of ivy, all the way from the deepest basement to the top of the highest spire.

Then again, you and I both know that won’t happen.  Only the colleges are immune to such things.  When is the last time you heard of anyone suing a college for malpractice?

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.

Motivate Teachers

Please permit me to become just a little radical.  Allow me to propose a literacy test before voting.  To be sure, it would be restrictive.  Some people would not be allowed to vote simply because they can’t read or write.

In truth, I don’t really suggest such a thing.  It would be wrong to restrict an American from voting because they can’t read.  That, to be sure, is true no matter what color their skin is.

However, consider the following, if you will.  Probably within a decade, the literacy rate would approach 100%.  The dummycrats would not like the idea of any of their voters being kept from the voting booth.  I have a feeling, given the right prod, the dummycrats would suddenly find a way to encourage the teachers.  Suddenly, all those excuses that they give us for their failures would disappear.

It is no secret that the dummycrats rely heavily on the African-American vote.  Yet, they stand in the way of every attempt for the Republicans to improve the schools.  I have my suspicions for this,; but I’ll let you figure it out for yourself.

The point is this.  We have bad schools and bad teachers because there is a lack of motive to improve them.  If we provide the motive, then the schools will improve…likely overnight.

As I said, I don’t really suggest removing the right to vote for any rightful citizen.  However, wouldn’t it be nice if the people voting would at least be able to read and write at a sixth grade level.  Wouldn’t it be nice if they had at least a basic concept of The Constitution.  Do we really want people voting who have no idea what the constitution is, let alone have a basic idea of the three branches of government.  Wouldn’t it be a good idea if they knew and understood at least the first 10 amendments, also known as The Bill of Rights.

To be sure, there are other problems besides teachers.  However, the teachers have the kids for at least 6 hours a day.  Shouldn’t they be required to do more than babysit?

Many, perhaps most of the teachers have master’s degrees.  Yet they are abject failures.  I have only a high school diploma and, if I were given 30 kids 5 hours a week for nine months, I assure, I would at least have them reading on a 3rd grade level.  Double that time and I they would have a good understanding of The Constitution.  If I can do it, they, with their degrees ought to be able to do it at least as well.

 

One more quick word.  At the beginning of the 1900s, most of our teachers had only 12 years of education.  They actually did a pretty good job.  Some would say better than today’s teachers.  It is the type of thing that happens when the federal government gets involved.  In the old days, the schools were, for the most part, locally controlled financed and controlled.  The schools didn’t have as much money, but what they did have were teachers who taught and students who learned.

“Let the Buyer Beware!”

Those who know me know that I am very much in favor of capitalism.  However, there are some who take advantage of capitalism for dishonest endeavors.  Whenever such things happen, the government ought to take reasonable measures to prevent such things.

By the way, such things are not new.  In the Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan, the pirate king claims that he is relatively honest.  He raises the skull and crossbones, and everyone knows what he and his men intend.  The businessman wears a business suit and robs people blind.  Moreover, those that are most likely to steal are those who are members of the bar association.

Well, today I received a letter from a dishonest business.  You may ask, “How do you know it is a dishonest business?”

To which, I say, it is simple.  On the letterhead, I saw “Medicare.com.”  It is an effort to deceive.  It was not from the government.  The Medicare website is Medicare.gov.  There was a disclaimer at the bottom of the letter.  I am sure they want everyone to read it.  On the other hand, if one out of a hundred doesn’t read it, the deception is successful.

For the most part, I did not read the letter.  I cannot tell you what it says.  However, I will tell you who it is from.  I will let you draw your own conclusion as to their honesty.  I will let you decide if you want to do business with them.  As for me, I will not give them the time of day.

They identify themselves as eHealthinsurance agency in New York and Oklahoma.  I would hope you will practice one capitalist saying, “Let the buyer beware.”

Unions

My father was a carpenter, a good one.  He could and did build houses from the ground up and by himself.  He did all the plumbing and wiring.  He dug the foundation and he laid the floors.

However, carpenters have unions.  For this reason he spent many hours waiting around the union hall waiting for a job.  He had to wait in line, just like all the rest, regardless of the skill levels and regardless of experience.  If they didn’t have a job for him, he came home.

One day, he was working on a two story apartment building.  One of the new carpenters, a young man, refused to go up on the second floor scaffolding.  My father tried to shame him.  He said, “What’s the matter.  I can walk on my hands completely around the building.”

The young man didn’t believe him.  My father said he would do it if he agreed to work up there.  To make the story short, the young man went up there and worked the rest of the job.  Oh, by the way.  My father was fifty-five at the time.

A short time later, he was taken aside by a union rep and told he needed to slow down.  He was making the rest of the men look bad.  Besides, they needed to make the job last a while.

I am not saying that unions are completely bad.  They fought for safety, especially for minors and steel workers.  They provided many of the things that labor takes for granted today, such as the forty hour work week.  Certainly, they managed to put the kibosh on child labor.

However, the pendulum has swung the other way.  They have become counterproductive.  Those that work harder are punished.  Those who turn in substandard work are protected.  Wages and benefits have become prohibitive, to the point that US industry was unable to compete with foreign industry.  The imported goods were not only less expensive, but better.

In effect, they forced the companies they worked for to go bankrupt.  Then, American taxpayers had to bail them out.

It is no wonder that people have such a negative perception of unions today.  They have had their part in destroying about every part of this country that was good.  The school boards no longer run our schools.  Everything is run by the NEA (National Education Association) even to the point that they determine what is taught and what is not.  About the only way a teacher can be fired is if he or she says something bad about unions.  By the way.  May I point out that the US schools have gone from the best to some of the worst under the management of the NEA?

This would be bad enough, but union management has become self-serving.  In a word, may I say… corrupt?  They no longer represent the rank and file.  They support candidates that support unions.  Needless to say the government officials return the favor.  They know they must or face the consequences.

We call it lobbying, but it is just a fancy word for bribery.  The unions pay some of the biggest bribes, mostly to the Democrats.  Besides their bribes, they outright pay for ads to support Democrat candidates.

In recent years, the unions have started losing their holds on this country.  Businesses are moving to right to work states.  Now, finally, The Supreme Court passed judgment on the government unions, essentially making all states right to work states for government employees.

As the unions disintegrate, as the union bosses are forced to find honest jobs, I can’t help but wonder.  If they had only not gotten so greedy.  They put themselves out of business simply because they wanted too much wealth and power.  In a while, they will have neither.  The government unions were their last stronghold.  Now it is gone.  More than that, the Dems too will suffer.  They will no longer receive the bribes from the union bosses and they will no longer be supported by dishonest men.
