Let’s See I’m White Privileged Because someone says I am.

I’m not really sure if I get this White Privilege thing or not. I was born white so somehow that makes me a privilege person ? Somehow because my mom and dad worked hard and spanked my butt when I acted out. Because I got my mouth washed out with soap for cussing. Maybe it is because when I went anyplace and acted like a spoiled brat I got my butt spanked on the spot or my butt spanked when my teacher call my dad when I misbehaved at school. In fact I sometimes got it twice once at school and when I got home. I’m white privileged because I was a Boy Scout and our leaders were are parents when we were away from home and had permission from our parents to spank our butts if we gave them any guff. Maybe I’m white privilege because my parents taught me to keep my hands to myself and girls were suppose to be treated like ladies. Maybe I’m white privileged because my dad taught me you get nothing in this world for free. Maybe I’m white privileged because my dad said if you don’t go to school you go to work and the day you graduate you better have a plan because it cost to live. Maybe I’m white privileged because my dad taught me that jails are not good places to be. Maybe I’m white privileged because I was taught if you break something that belongs to a neighbor you pay them back. Maybe I’m white privileged because I was taught let the other guy throw the first punch then flatten his butt. But then after you are done settling your differences you shack hands and get a long.

I just don’t get it. I’m white I rate no special breaks because I am and don’t think I ever got any because of being white. I grant you that I wasn’t born in the ghetto or raised in a single parent home. I could go to the park and play ball in the evening without worrying about getting beat up or drugs being push in front of me. I didn’t have to worry about my 8 blocks I walked to school each day. I didn’t worry about walking to Boy Scouts at night and coming home afterwards and being safe. Am I white Privileged because we didn’t have a/c and we only had window fans in the summer ? Was I white privilege because at Christmas I got clothes and few toys ? I think there is a problem with this white privilege thing.

I do feel sorry for anyone that has no father or mother. I know that is tuff life and it means growing up on your own a lot. My problem is this. We can learn one of two way from what we see in life. We can learn what works and what doesn’t. We can learn what hurts and what doesn’t hurt. So many people use what their parents did as a excuse to blame things on them or act the same damn way. Maybe we should have a class in school that teaches you how things are meant to be. That two parent families is a good thing. That you are responsible for the children you procreate and nothing in life is free just because you want it. Maybe I’m white privilege because I was taught to respect my elders no matter who they were. I grant you this that not every cop deserved my respect but I stayed clear of them. But 99.9 % of them deserved my respected and they just did their jobs and kept us safe. Even the ones that I didn’t like just rousted us because we were causing a problem.

This whole thing of race comes down to one thing. Loving your neighbor as you love yourself. The golden rule. Teaching children to respect one another but that starts at home and not in school. We have taken the power of teaching respect out of teachers hands. We’ve tied their hand behind their backs because you can’t touch a kid without being sued. We have taken God out of the schools , respect of our Nations flag out of our schools. We don’t teach the Constitution or the Bill of Rights in school. We teach instead that there are no winners or losers and we are all somehow equal even after we lose in a game of baseball. Somehow now it is ok to steal or loot because you can’t afford those things and your mom or dad didn’t teach you right from wrong. We don’t need jails because all those bad thing those people do are because they never were taught anything different. So we are just going to let them loose to do those bad things over and over again because the white privilege people are all to blame. If somehow we can just take all that stuff white privilege people have and give it to everyone else this world will be better. Why work just let those white privilege people just give all their stuff up. Have you got the picture yet on how dangerous this sounds ? But that is what you hear out of these people. Who think the police aren’t needed and mayors and governors who think after they let theirs cities burn and be looted. That the rest of America should send our hard earned taxes to rebuild what they let someone burn down and didn’t do what it takes to stop it.

In America there is no privileged class white , black , yellow , red or any other skin color. You respect the people who raise you. You go to school and then work hard you can do whatever you want with in our laws. Sure you can go the other way but then there is a price to pay. But no one ever said you had to steal , loot , do drugs or drink. Those things are your choices not society choice for anyone. Personal responsibility is a choice and no one can make that choice for anyone else or force it on anyone. We took God out of the schools took the rulers out of teachers hands and even out of parents hands. It is time to put it all back because guess what folks school and family life wasn’t that bad when you had God in your home and school. With my privilege white butt I worked hard and I respected my elders. I praised my God and paid for my miss deeds with blood. sweat and tears. All our lives matter because God created us all and no one is perfect except for Jesus who died on that cross for us all . We don’t have to agree on everything but loving someone doesn’t mean you always agree with them or what they do. It means you’ll be there even when they are wrong or vice versa.

Equal Justice For All

We have been going through one of the most trying time in modern history. It hasn’t been cause by war and hopefully not cause by man. Yet it effects the whole world and it is prejudice against no one. It will either make you slightly sick , moderately sick or kill you. It has cost the world trillions of dollars and it is libel to cost us trillions more. Some people are infected more than others and some have higher death rates. But the evil it dishes out doesn’t care about our race, creed or religion. If you were evil you say this is evil justice for all because it doesn’t care who or how many it kills.

Now our justice system should be the same way with a blind eyes for race, creed and religion. This is a man made system though and it is a long ways from perfect. I’ve been thinking about equal justice for all for a long time even before the George Floyd happenings in Minneapolis. Most of us aren’t involved in the protest but most of us agree that justice needs to happen for George Floyd. Even in the day of body cams the officers body cam won’t do much good as evidence. But the length of time from the take down handcuffing of George Floyd should be evidence itself that something was unusual was taking place. Then in this modern age we have civilians with smart phones making a recording of the whole take down and the failure of George Floyd being able to be brought to his feet to be transported to jail. Now justice will come for George Floyd whether it is fair or not remains to be seen. A lot of questions need to be asked and a lot of things don’t make sense watching that video. Should other officers be complicit in his action. Shouldn’t one of them at least step into say enough let’s transport this guy? How about the equal justice ?

What do I mean other equal justice ? The protest bring on a even more profound call for equal for all. In war you would call it collateral damage. But this isn’t war but a protest for change that calls for equal treatment of all. We agree that something needs to change and it isn’t enough just to say equal justice if it doesn’t work that way from the officers on the streets to the judges , prison system and release system too. Fine but what about those shop owners who lost businesses and livelihood because a few thought the only way to get change is damage innocent peoples property to make a point. It isn’t like we haven’t seen protest before but when they turn violent. They are no longer a protest but riots and crimes of their own. Equal justice these folks that own these businesses deserve it too. But what we have seen in the past somehow these rioters get away with burning business ,looting them. Then the community around these places end up having to travel miles away to get the services they have lost. So where is the equal justice for these people ? We have seen it in Watts , in Harlem and now will we see it in Minneapolis and the others cities with shops and businesses destroyed by people that aren’t really looking for justice for George Floyd but to make the police and political leaders look bad. So one party or the other can blame the President that happens to be in the White House. Just as much as George Floyd needs to have equal justice so do the property owners and other innocent people that have been hurt by this uncalled for ruining of their lives deserve it too. Martin Luther King Jr. wasn’t a man of violent protest. Even though I’ll bet there were people who thought he was to gentile. Yet he had great success and brought a lot of change. Not perfect change but yet a good deal of it. If you model your protest like Martin Luther King Jr. and are willing to turn in those that destroy. Then you are worth listening too. If you condone these rioters then you aren’t interested in equal justice for just you are another part of the problem that doesn’t respect your neighbors . NO EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL UNLESS EVERYONE THAT IS HURT IN THIS GEORGE FLOYD SITUATION RECEIVES IT. PROPERTY OWNERS AND COMMUNITIES DESERVE TO HAVE JUSTICE SERVED TOO. IT SHOULDN’T BE JUST COLLATERAL DAMAGE LIKE IT SEEMS TO BE ALWAYS TREATED LIKE IN THE PASSED. MURDER ISN’T LEGAL AND NIETHER IS RIOTING AND BURNING INNOCENT PEOPLES PROPERTY AND LOOTING. UNTIL ALL SIDE ARE HEARD AND JUSTICE IS DEALT OUT FAIRLY . EQUAL JUSTICE WON’T BE SERVED !!

Oh Those Printing Press are Running

Don’t you hear those printing presses running ? I don’t mean your local news papers or Time , Life , Readers Digest or any other of your normal news print. I mean those printing presses at the Treasury Department. The Fed is feeding the banks and business community with a few Trillion dollars. All those checks that are being sent people that file a tax return in 2018 or 19. All the businesses that will be getting tax breaks , government forgivable loans. I don’t even know if I remembered or even touch on the tip of iceberg on the things the government is doing or printing money for. I have a problem with all of that but yet again. I’m not sure what all this printing of money does to the inflation rate but I can’t imagine it’s though. Don’t get me wrong that I’m not saying that everything the Federal government has done didn’t need to be done. Because the choices weren’t many other than to let this Covid-19 virus run wild with no cure or vaccine or make the choices they made. Maybe for you like me and most people all this Covid-19 virus thing is like something so surreal that is hard to believe it is happening and we are all wondering when it will end. There is another scary part State’s can’t print their own money.

State’s have budgets and they collect taxes to run state budgets. Some state’s have rainy day funds for down years when tax revenues aren’t enough to cover all parts of their budgets. Yet most state’s won’t have enough in their coffers to cover this big a hit without income taxes coming , limited gas taxes coming in and sales taxes coming in. All those taxes are taking a hit . The big question is how long can states stay shut down and operate with limited taxes coming in. So I ask myself which state is going to start to break the stay at home and all these directives first ? That is a very realistic question something most governor’s are thinking about. We know most doctors or medical scholars would want us to stay shut down until this Covid-19 thing has passed. Many scary factors are being tossed around by these medical experts on how we open states up and how soon. Will we all need to be tested for Covid-19 ? Will we just have to be checked for antibodies ? Will you need those things done before you can return to work ? So many things for our leaders to consider.

We may have many changes in the way we prepare for pandemics and disasters after all this Covid-19 virus experience finally comes to a end. I’m not a real fan of taxes and especially taxes that let some people escape them and others not. For instance people who ride buses don’t pay a fuel tax but they do use transportation. What I’m trying to say is preparedness is going to be a big subject and paying for that preparedness is going to be a big question. People are never happy with paying taxes but we aren’t happy with this Covid-19 situation either. But being prepared with more PPE on hand and ready to go is important. Perhaps having a cushion of money to help play for a pandemic or disaster relief.

So with the printing presses running at the Treasury full speed ahead and we thank God our government can do that. We just pray for the future and the planning for other disasters than come a long in our country and in our world. For this world has had many calamities and a little old Boy Scout ” Being Prepared ” is a good thing.

Great American Mind Readers 2

I started to write this blog the other day. In fact I had it completed so I thought because of the automatic save feature in WordPress. Well guess what it didn’t work but so it is with technology. Then I thought to myself that perhaps this blog wasn’t to be at all. Yet I feel this blog needs to be written. For to long the American people have been treated like little children by the government, large companies and a good part of the news media. Whom I call the Great American Mind Readers. Government has a tendency to not share things they feel will have a negative effect on society. (At least the way it use to be) Large companies are different in they share their progress on things they produce in stages because producing the final version with all the improvements limit their profit. The media has a evolved from journalism to a copy and paste media. When you turn on your news network it doesn’t matter which one it is. They are all the same. A few years ago during the George W. Bush Presidential term in office the term gravitas was used referring to George Bushes lack of it. That in itself wasn’t bad but on every news show the same term and same statement. It was like the news shows had all the SAME writer. Rush Limbaugh played montage of news reports of all the main media with that exact statement in it. Fast forward to 2016 – 2019 and the Great American Mind Readers have completely changed journalism to the tabloid news of the day.

I’m not sure about you but when I go to the grocery store and get to the check out lane, I see the tabloids and I laugh at their headlines and wish somehow that the celebrities who are written about would sue the heck out of those rags, if the things they write about them isn’t true. Once in a while they do and win a retraction and a few bucks. We as a public have learned that these tabloids aren’t worth paying for and we don’t buy them. After the out come of the 2016 Presidential Election our news media has turned a new page of not reporting news but tabloid-ism and one sided reporting at its worst. I call it the Great American Mind Readers. You would think that the leadership at these media sources would consider themselves as businesses and as profit making organizations. It was reported the other day that not one single show on CNN had million viewers. For more than two years they have laid all their money on President Trump and Russian collusion. If it wasn’t for President Trump their broadcasting would be nothing but empty space. I know that had some peoples attention but they weren’t prepared for the Mueller dud report or the lack of evidence for obstruction of justice charges against President Trump. I firmly believe that if there was a clear case for obstruction of justice charges impeachment hearings would be well on there way. I’m looking just at CNN but it isn’t just CNN. I could say the same for The New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC and the rest of the main news channel except Fox News. These are the Great American Mind Readers. They think that all they have to do is make up things and say unnamed sources gave them their information. The real unfortunate thing is that they have lied so much and put all their eggs in one basket. That they can’t humble themselves EVER to say we were wrong. They are like a guy that uses a 10 hour slow drying paint and starts at the one door into the room and paints himself into a corner. And then wants out. But there is no way out without ruining his paint job and shoes. After the last two years plus of reporting how President Trump colluded with the Russians without leaving themselves a out or a possibility of being WRONG. They just keep their butts bent over with theirs BS flowing out through the fan to splatter on the walls to see if anything can possibly stick to President Trump. They did much the same to President Bush but it wasn’t a constant 24/7 attack like it is on President Trump. Some of you will say well they still report the disasters and stuff and yes I’ll agree. But if they can in all things hate President Trump, they’ll somehow try to make it his fault.

One last thing to say about the American Great Mind Readers. Even as you have joined the Democrat Party to slide us off the left socialist coast in the long run you will lose. You have taken God out of control of everything even if you claim to believe in God at all. Somehow you have bought into that we are the gods and can control everything without any help from God who has kept this country safe for over 200 years. We have made our mistakes and believe God knows but you don’t give God that credit. God is paying attention even though you don’t believe. God knows that He is in the the back of the bus and being pushed into the fan on the engine. Oh He isn’t being push there by everyone but the results are showing in our schools and our society. For God’s believers have somehow have thrown in a lot of the towel. The true face of evil is showing clearer than ever before in this nation. Evil isn’t always ugly but in somethings it looks good but when its proposals are put into play the results are a disaster for man kind. We keep on hearing that somehow in the next 10 years. If we don’t act on climate change this earth is doomed. I don’t get that or how mankind could possible change enough to effect the worlds climate for the better in 10 years. We control our own destiny as much as Adam and Eve controled theirs. It hasn’t changed the snake is still saying I know better than God, you can do better. Will we continue to believe in those lies or will we at least slow this fall for a little while for a generation or two. Will we return to God who protected our fore fathers and put God in control and not the Great American Mind Readers who think they are the only ones that know what is good for us! This is strictly my opinion and unlike the Great American Mind Readers I’m not always right.

Everyone’s Enemy

George at the house at 1315 Farnam St., Davenport, IA

There is a Enemy we all have in life and no one is without our common enemy. We are born it starts. It stops the day you die. I may have to correct that people who don’t believe in the after life believe their time ends at death. Yes, that Enemy is TIME. Time isn’t a bad thing of course and some of us receive more Time in life than others. The choice isn’t ours of course but you’ll find a few arguments on that. Some will say you can somehow add more Time to your life by your style of life. If you read the bible Proverbs will say you can live a longer life by your faith in God.

George in cowboy shirt – school pic

Let’s talk about Time after all we battle that ticking thing each day. Yea I’m going put few little pictures of myself as we travel through this blog. Some of us have been blessed and don’t seem to age that fast. I can only speak for myself ( I think people are pulling my chain when they say that to me.)

You see a lot of change from my first communion, boy scouts, Senior year, and US Navy years. That is life though. There are vast differences as we age. Some of us go a long with the crowd a little and some a lot. I don’t remember my dad ever pushing me to join the Boy Scouts and definitely he never push a bit on my enlistment in the Navy. Yet he once was a Eagle Scout himself. He left those decisions up to us as youngsters. That is the way I really think it should be, We push our kids into to many things that we want them to do and they really don’t want to do some of them. A little off subject of our common enemy. We learn a lot about time and the use of it as we grow older. I can say that but I know people who still live for the weekend and getting drunk. I’m not sure if there is any difference between last weekends hang over than the one before. The way we use time is a matter of choices though. We can live a life and believe in nothing or we can believe in something. We can believe in God or not. We can believe this whole thing came to be by atoms flying around and just coming together randomly.

We don’t know when our time is up or how much time we have left. We know people that ate all the fatty foods the so called experts said we shouldn’t but they live to 100 or more. I do know that the older you get the less things you desire to buy. Things become a less important and friendships and family take center stage. We reminisce and look back at our lives but you can’t change yesterday So what is done is done. You learn your mouth has been your worst enemy through life because once you say something you can’t take it back. It’s not that you can’t try but once you say something you can’t suck it back even if you never meant it. I believe that as you battle the enemy of time that you use it as wisely as you can. Recently listened to a Andy Stanley seminar and the main point was this. ” Direction not your intentions determine your destination in life. Direction always out trumps your intentions. ” Point is this keeping focused on your direction is the most important thing you can do. This is hard because life has so many distractions. I wish I’d heard Andy Stanley speak when I was 18 and not 72. That is life and it is never to late to learn or pass something on. I’ve tried to pass my faith a long in life but I know many people don’t have that same faith. One last thing to say about our enemy time. If you have hope of better things to come no matter your situation. You’re better off than someone with no hope. For no hope makes living no sense at all. Hope of a better tomorrow even if it is in the after life is better than living for nothing. Surly we don’t go through all this up and down in life to just evaporate to nothing. What a cruel thought and what would be the point to all this we’ve went through. Your opinions are welcome and yes I’d argue with any atheist out there who says God isn’t. Feel free to write.

What is Evil ?

How do I start to answer the question I pose? For you must understand that we have struggled with it since the Garden of Eden. Evil doesn’t have a bad face or even give you the indication that it is bad for you. The fact is it will appear to be good for you and society. It might even do just a little good or like the fruit in the Garden of Eden taste delicious, so why not share it. I’m not sure why God created the devil but I know that everything comes from God. Every human or thinking spirit has free will. So it isn’t hard to understand how the devil came to be. Maybe the devil came to be because God doesn’t make robots that cannot go against Him. We have a choice to love God or not. So do the spirits or angels that were created before we had a choice too. Some had that pumped up pride and choose self instead of God. I’m getting away from my own question but yet I’m no

I’m writing this and look around this world and I see blatant things that are evil and it isn’t no way hidden at all. But you’ll see the ones that perform these evil things claiming it is good or in the name of god. Now I can’t give my God credit for these evil acts, so no capital ” g ” for their god. Was 9/11/2011 a blatant act of evil? Is every bombing in cities throughout this world evil? Yes for sure but that is the end signs of evil. It is not the hidden evil that tries to suck innocent and weak people into its grasp to rip us apart from one another. It isn’t the evil that turns sister against sister and brother against brother. See or perhaps you won’t see. Evil makes something like a peace treaty with an evil empire look good and beneficial for all. Where in all you have done is give the evil empire a cloak to continue planning for your demise. Evil makes your yes a no and your no a yes. You’ll sometime hear a kid tell you that in a joking way. Yes is no and no is yes. But that is exactly what evil is. It flips bad for good and vice versa.

We deal in sight and the appearance and evil aren’t ugly but inviting and mesmerizing. Read the book of Genesis on the creation of this world. Read with a vision of the Garden of Eden where God put man. Was it dark or uninviting in any way? It wasn’t and everything in it was perfect and beautiful and even the tree which God told Adam not to touch or eat from looked good and harmless. Good is like dynamite which can be used to move mountains and save time in construction but also can be used to kill people and damage things. Evil is like a drug that cures a certain disease but has side effects that kill you if given wrongly.

Evil today even though still appearing to be good has been drawn into a panic mode. It isn’t as hidden as before. In fact, it is wide out in the open claiming to be the sole speaker for the majority of the human race. It points at those who stand for God’s unchanging ways and says God has changed and the Word’s He had our fore father’s write aren’t completely right. That somehow the hidden evils of old that weren’t talked about much aren’t really evil at all. That the ones that want a completely verifiable peace with the evil empire are wrong and it doesn’t need to be as long as there isn’t a war. Evil today is more visible than it has ever been. From the front pages of our newspapers, magazines, radios, and televisions. All claiming that evil is good and having people that will step forward to lie to say that it is so. We live in dangerous times where evil is in a panic mode because it has been called out on many fronts and sees it ultimately lost to a God of good and righteousness. So What is Evil? It is anything that appears to be good but in the long run, it is bad for God and mankind. Now is this plagiarist writing because I’m sure Evil has been written about many times before? I say no because this has come straight from my heart and what I see in our society and churches. It is an alarm that every good God loving man, woman and child should sound. Will this stop evil or change the war on evil? It isn’t supposed to but opens a few more eyes, ears and minds to the deceiving way evil continues to work but today in a much more open way than the past. Your comments are always welcome, in fact, I encourage them because we can only grow by communicating our beliefs and different views.

Thinking About God

Have you ever really sat down and thought about God? Most people would probably say no. Think of the billions of people on this planet and God knows the very next thought in each of our minds. He knows the next word you’ll say. The next thing you’ll do. He knows you better than you do. I realize that many people don’t believe in God and that is perfectly okay because they have a free will. Somehow this world and all we see and touch just magically came to be is fine with them. The awesomeness of God amazes me and why God would put up with such an ungrateful people is beyond my understanding. I say that but in a sense I do understand in my human mine why God keeps this world turning. It is a love beyond all love that man can’t possibly comprehend. See because to us someone who would spit in your face and say you are a piece of crap, you wouldn’t keep around. Yet everyday and day after day people don’t give God a first thought or second thought. God isn’t in their hundredth thought of the day. Yet God keeps them breathing, watered and feed, roofs over there heads and their world turning round and round. Jesus said the way to heaven is a narrow way and few will reach it. I read what I just wrote and I know exactly why.

Media Library

People will say I believe in God. I ask when! When a baby is born. When you get real sick. When your in a accident. When you get married. When you are on your death bed. There are a lot of whens there and what about the in between times. Isn’t there a time other than those that God crosses our minds and hearts. Don’t you look at the things in your life that God has brought you through when you thought you wasn’t going to make it. To those that don’t believe I know you did it all yourself and when you die that is it you die. Darn what a waste to go through life with nothing in the end to look forward too. That makes me sad better get off that subject.

Think of this for a minute if you will. If you was Bill Gates or any billionaire and gave it all away expecting you could get into heaven. You wouldn’t make it without faith in Jesus and excepting His death, resurrection and confessing your sins and asking forgiveness. Simple and clean but you have let go of your pride and humble yourself. That is why it is harder for some to get into heaven.

Sometime no matter who we are we take this all for granted. We get up in the morning don’t give our Creator a second thought or a thought through out the day. Now I’m guilty as charge God and no I’m not proud of it but I’m being honest. It isn’t because I don’t believe every single word I’ve written but because I’m in this human skin, and somehow I just take everyday for granted. Yet God is so Amazing, Awesome and loving God. He understands and Jesus blood has washed me clean even though I don’t deserve it. This isn’t where I intended to go but you can’t speak of God in my writing without mentioning Jesus or vice versa

A New Day Coffee Please!

Ah yes, my morning cup of coffee. I’m not sure about you but there is something about that first cup in the morning, I’ve read where you shouldn’t have a cup right away in the morning. Something about taking away from your just finished nights sleep. But regardless old habits are sometimes hard to break. I’m not a guy that finds long term habits hard to break. I smoked for about 20 years and threw them out the window of my service vehicle one day and quit cold turkey. When my dad was having by-pass surgery

I work for over 44 years for one of the largest vending companies and in the last ten years, I’d say coffee has became our saving grace. Our company became a multi-service company. We carried about every type of coffee you could think of and the same with the machines that brewed them. You could have a Starbucks machine in your office and one of our clients had one in his home basement. Sometimes I wonder how people could afford to buy some of our coffee. K-cups really are pretty expensive at almost 40 cents a cup. Yet what is nice is not having to mess with the coffee grounds. The little machine you see in my picture above is a Hamilton Beach Flex-brew. You can use either grounds in a little cup or the k-cup adapter. I can’t drink a lot of coffee upsets my stomach after a few days of too many cups of my favorite brew. There is only the two of us too, so it makes sense to use a machine like this. I’m sure I could fix a machine like this but basically, they are a throwaway machine because they are so cheap to buy. I’d recommend this one to anyone really particularly if there’s only a couple of you at home.

There are other trends in the vending and refreshment trade that have breathed a little fresh air into its limp sails. I didn’t retire because it wasn’t interesting or couldn’t keep up with the technology but driving in the Winter began to really suck. With wifi,scanners, debit cards and remote cameras the trade was taking on a new look when I retired. Was looking forward to getting rid of all the service manuals (at least paper ones ) and using a iPad and laptops. With all the coffee makers we serviced iPad’s were going to make a world of difference.

Hope you are enjoying your favorite morning coffee as you read this. Have a great rest of your day. Your continued reading of my opinions are greatly appreciated and your comments are encouraged.

Dealing with the Sick

Dealing with sick people has a lot to do with cost and cost has a lot to do with health insurance, hospitals, medicines, research, doctors,nurses and all the other things required to keep us well. Dealing with the continual sky rocketing cost of care for the sick is a mind boggling problem.

This isn’t the day of mom going to the hospital and having a baby, then coming home a week later. With a bill for a few hundred dollars. When that was the case when health insurance was a pipe dream and the only one paying the bill was the patents family. People that went to the doctor with cancer or serious things like that were basically given very little chance of survival for any length of time.

Here we are 2019 and we have made great strides in treatments for a lot of mankind’s killer diseases. With the insurance companies help and the continual rising cost because someone has to pay for the great strides in our medical care. When I sold health insurance in 1970 Blue Cross and Blue Shield was the top of the line insurance carrier. They would pay when no one else would. Also it cost more than others because it paid for more. I’m not sure who is the Ace of the health care insurance companies today but I know there is one. Holding the cost on health care is pretty hard with ever advancing progress in treating of diseases we thought were almost never going to be cured.

With the recent passage of the the Affordable Care Act I can see one thing it has done. And it really isn’t anything to do with lowering medical cost. The older doctors have retired in droves. It’s like a rush to see how fast they could close there medical practices. I believe this was brought on by the payment limits of the Affordable Care Act and the choice of doctors in the plans. Many of older doctors were considered to high a cost for the new plans to absorb. Some that stayed would allow people to pay about 60% to 75% of the office call if it was paid on the spot cash or charge. I know this for a fact because my wife who is 7 years younger than me wouldn’t go to any of the doctors in the new plan that we could afford. So she went to her doctor and we paid around 75% cash for her visits. He doctor she had before the Affordable Care Act took hold, retired so fast the door didn’t hit him in the butt on the way out.

The great strides we are making in all sorts of fields of medicine both drugs and treatments is amazing to the average person like me. But the cost and who and how we continue to pay for these advances is a great concern for all. Like taxes even though some people say business are the ones who pay there own taxes. Taxes are a cost of doing business, as is energy, wages and everything else. It is all passed on to the consumer don’t kid yourself. Health insurance premiums pay for a lot if not most of these new advances. I started out writing this thinking of all the things Blue Cross and Blue shield use to pay for in 1970 and how sometime I thought if they just said no to paying for some of the advances. That premiums for health insurance would been less. I’m looking at what I’ve written and I see the position we are in. We can say no to paying for these advancements in medicine and limit ourselves to cures now instead of 10 years from now. We are in a capitalist society though and our lines and waits for treatment isn’t as long as it is in England, Canada and many other countries were government controls the cost and makes believe that you somehow aren’t paying for it. What do you think is there away to control our sky rocketing health care without cutting out the great strides we are making on treatments for so many things I can’t list them all. You opinions are welcome.

Why Are You Going To Vote For Joe Biden ?

I sure Joe Biden voter can let those reasons roll off their tongue. I really can only think of two personally if I was a Biden voter. One he is a Democrat and two is he isn’t Donald J. Trump. Somehow those two reasons are quite good enough for me to vote for him.

Let’s see Biden is a strong support of controlling out borders. Really he has only flipped on that 3 or 4 time. I guess he must support Pelosi and the open border crew now.

Maybe Biden is a strong supporter of our Police . I saw a campaign ad today and he spoke about being against violence and riots. But I wondered why it took him so long to call it wrong. In his little Delaware cave I guess he didn’t have a TV for a few months. Where was Biden as they rioted and burned private businesses in Minneapolis ? That is a very good question Joe wasn’t smoking mad but he could have been smoking something funny. Where has he been as businesses and Federal building where being destroyed and burned in Portland and Seattle ? Yes , his Democratic friends keep supporting Defund the Police and passing laws that tie police hands and he says nothing.

Well maybe good old Joe is going to be rough on terrorist. Yea the same guy who DIDN’T want to take out Bin Laden. I know if we are nice to all these guys that hate us in the world. They’ll like us someday. I guess we found out how that policy worked on 9/11/2001. I’m sure he has a plan to protect us from China and North Korea. Oh yea forgot we just open our markets to all their stuff while they suck our businesses in and steal out technology because that is all China has done. Fair to the Chinese is you wear the blindfolds we play with our eye wide open. Well as far as North Korea goes Biden like Obama just won’t talk to them or draw meaningless lines in the sand.

Let’s see Biden and NATO is easy to figure out. Just go back to paying the most and getting the least like before. After all why should the rich American taxpayers get a fair deal from those poor EU bunch.

Maybe United Nations will love us a little more if we go back to letting them poop on us and pee on us because we are the big imperialists’ of the world. That’s okay Obama and Joe like that for 8 years.

Maybe you can vote for old Joe Biden so Hollywood super stars won’t want to leave our country because they hate Trump who won’t kiss their butts.

Maybe you can vote for old Joe because he never lies. Other than plagiarizing speeches and telling us he never talked to Hunter about his dealing the Ukraine. We know they never said a word about Hunter’s business dealing in those hours of flying to Ukraine and China together. I know you believe they never even touch the subject of what Hunter was going to get paid and how much. Yes and Santa , the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy are coming to give all Democrats a $1000. 00 each after the election.

Maybe you can vote for Joe Biden because he never changers his mind. He is just a Democrat first he is for strong borders and then he isn’t. Him and Obama putting kids in cages and the blaming Trump. Now it is back to open borders.

Maybe it is Joe Biden Covid 19 plan. You know all the things he said that Trump already did. Things Trump wanted to do but couldn’t because because he isn’t the dictator the Democrats claim he is. I know Joe wanted to keep those Chinese coming from Wuhan when President Trump shut the air ways down to their travel here. I know we heard Joe Biden crying about all the deaths and destruction Covid 19 might do as Pelosi tried to impeach Trump. Yea and we know President Trump never took Covid 19 serious because he did nothing. WRONG President Trump may have said we’d get through it and tried all those reassuring words but at the same time he organized experts , close traffic to the USA and got on his phone and burnt lines up for the production of PPE and ventilators. The hype was in the action not in the words. Words that scared the Americans people were UNKNOWN VIRUS WITH NO KNOW CURE COMING OUR WAY. Ask your neighbor if that wasn’t enough to scare most people in this country. Perhaps President Trump regretted closing things down but he like us and even the scientist didn’t know how to slow it down.

Well you might vote for old Joe Biden because he is strong on the environment. What’s he strong on taking our money and giving China a pass ? Next question is just how exactly are they going to do to control climate change ? It could be he want to close all our coal fired power plants and Nuclear plants and force electric cars on us all. I know just a Joe dream.

I think the question we should ask both President Trump is this. Mister President you stopped aid to the Ukraine because you want a clear picture on the end of corruption in Ukraine’s political system is that right ? Is that Quid quo Pro ? Mister Biden you wanted the prosecutor in the Ukraine fired before they got a billion deal with our government Why and what for ? What was he doing so wrong that he needed to be fired ? Little follow up didn’t your son Hunter get a job as board member of a Ukraine Petroleum company for a $1,000,000.00 salary right after this Persecutor got fired ? Was the the Quid quo pro ?

That you see my friends should end the debate and see if they both lie or not.

What Questions The Media Should Ask Both Presidential Candidates

There are a lot of questions that the media is dying to ask President Trump that they should ask Biden too. Recently I had a friend tell that President Trump is hypocritical. He says that all the campaign stuff is made in China. I have no doubt that is true and to ask President Trump why would be a fair question. To ask Sleep Joe the same question is fair too. Some of President Trump’s biggest supporter are in his family and I have no doubt payed to run parts of his campaign. Fair question would be how much are they payed ? Same would go for Sleep Joe’s family. President Trump you have been able to bring back a lot of manufacturing why wasn’t President Obama able to do the same ? Sleep Joe Biden why couldn’t your 8 years in the White House produce anymore manufacturing jobs ? President Trump you have had great success at making the Petroleum industry a key to job growth in your 4 years. What have you done that the previous administration didn’t do and why ? Why Sleepy Joe wasn’t Obama and you capable of doing the same thing ? President Trump it seems to be fair game to investigate anything related to you or your family. Joe Biden why isn’t it fair to put you and your family through the same kind of investigation ? President Trump in the giving of foreign aid you held it up to the Ukraine for what reason ? Sleep Joe Biden you threatened to cut a billion dollars from foreign aid to Ukraine unless a certain persecutor was fired. Why did you want him fired and what was he investigating that unset you ? There has been claims in the media President Trump that you are profiting from you time in office are you ? Sleep Joe Biden in your family there are claims that they have received contracts for things even though they had no experience in those industries isn’t that true ?

It is questions like these that deserve to be answered and rightfully so since they have been in the news for the past 4 years. There is the question of fairness of the press and whether it is bias in it’s coverage of both sides in this election year. When the public can see actual burning building in news coverage and the media is saying that it is peaceful protest. Something is wrong. When the media can’t get the facts straight on how a arrest went down and it causes riots it should be investigated. Sometime when a airline has a disaster and the number of people killed get reported are different on different networks. Those are easy mistakes to make and explain. But when a police go to arrest someone in a house and they are shot at first and then they return fire and a innocent person is killed it isn’t the police at fault. But if a news network says that the police just started firing their weapons first. Then you have riots in the streets. And reporting like that is wrong as it would be to yell fire in a theater.

We are in a day were people want instant justice and instant solution to problems. We see reporters taking side and not reporting the news correctly. When you have a group of people of either left political persuasion or the right political persuasion An they come at each other with clubs and things. Which side is right ? One has a permit to march the other doesn’t. But when the fist start flying and people get hurt who’s fault is it ? President Trump didn’t take sides he basically said they were both wrong. He said it was a horrible thing he saw and he never judge one or the other. I guess he is like me it takes two to tangle and if one group or the other would have just gone home or protested later it would not have happened. But in this case people were looking for a fight and they found it. Leadership sometimes isn’t always the wisest when tempers are high. Nothing is solved by beating police or trashing businesses. If people aren’t willing to sit down and discuss problems in communities then they are part of the problem not the solution. That goes for city leaders if they aren’t willing to discuss peoples concerns and work toward reasonable answers then they are the problem and not the solution. No one is perfect and governments aren’t either.

The Six Things That Hold The Trump Voters Together

Recently a friend of mine said I follow President Trump like a God. What he was saying is that the people who vote for Trump and go to his rallies think he is always right. I really don’t believe that to be the case. President Trump is still just a man. He makes mistakes , he miss speaks and isn’t always right. He takes chances on things and sometime raises eye brows on his most stanch supporters. But yet he is always thinking of the promises he made to the people that voted for him. His personal life he has made many mistakes in and you can’t be married 3 times and say you haven’t made mistakes. I’m not sure who was at fault in his two failed marriages but that is his business. We see President Trump’s faults but we aren’t going to drink the killing Kool-Aid and walk off a cliff to follow some wild scheme. And we support him because his issues are OUR ISSUES.

First of all we support American jobs. For years jobs have been shipped overseas a long with the plants and machinery to build the same products then shipped back here to sell to us. They use cheaper labor and yet the products come back here at the same prices or higher ones. President Trump has listened and has work to even the playing field. Yes , there still is China made products here but nothing is going to change completely over night. He has worked with success on our trade deals and give us more markets and more open markets for our goods.

Second President Trump has worked from his very first moment in office on illegal immigration and securing our borders. His administration continues this fight everyday. There isn’t much else to be said on this issue except this isn’t even on the table on the Democrat side. Even though this illegal immigration hurts the supposed people they say they want to protect their jobs.

Third President Trump has made every effort to increase our support for our Arm Services in Defense spending and increase pay. We know that planes and ships can’t be produced over night and the time line of the stuff getting to our troops aren’t overnight shipping. But he and his administration has increase spending on defense and made it a priority.

Four President Trump has supported reform in the Veterans Administration and we can see the reforms at work in our communities. Yes further work needs to be done. He knows as well as we do.

Five President Trump supports the Right To Life and protecting the unborn is a major reason he has our support. Whether he was always prolife or not doesn’t matter to us but he is now and is all that matters. We have heard all the innuendo about President Trump’s past life but I guess like the Clinton forgivers we are willing to forgive him.

Sixth President Trump has appointed hundreds of judges who believe in our Constitution and Supreme Court Judges who he believes do the same.

So you see the pro Trump people don’t worship the ground President Trump walks on. We don’t cheer just because we think Hillary has gotten a pass on justice. We don’t cheer because we don’t agree with Sleepy Joe Biden or the Socialist Democrats who support Sleepy. We don’t cheer just because we think America is Great or that our flag should be respected like he says. We don’t cheer because he doesn’t support the kneeling as the American Anthem is played. We don’t believe he hates Democrats or anyone because he took a oath to serve us all. But you can’t please all no matter how hard you try as President or even in your own life. He is working to make this county better for all.

You can say I brushed a side Covid 19 and education and other things that are all very important . Yet I believe if President Trump deserts any of those sixth things above he would lose his base and more than that really. But that the Democrats can figure out themselves.

President Trump believe that God has blessed America and has made this a very special place in His world that He created and he believes like we believe we can’t desert God or this nation is doomed.

Who Hyped The Corona Virus ?

In the last couple of weeks or maybe just since Bob Woodward book came out that question is being kicked around quite a bit. President Trump did play it very cool. I think as a leader of a great nation he needed to project calm and no need to panic. If you have ever been in a fire or any of those crisis situations. You’d notice that the good leaders would encourage calm and non-panic. Panic kills people it wipes out supplies and causes hording. It gets people trampled and traps people in fires. In the case of Covid 19 someone definitely got the message out that it’s a serious disease with no cure or vaccine. Saying that is enough to put panic in peoples minds. Yes at first President Trump told people it was something like the flu virus but more serious.

We were told about the Spanish Flu of 1918 and we saw pictures of big building with beds from one end to the other. We were told about the number of people that died because of the unknown nature of the virus and no real treatment for it. Then the media wonders why people panic. So we ask who hyped Covid 19 ? From the President shutting down travel to and from China , Asia , EU and UK. Then it just kept on spreading from continent to continent. See you could point the finger at President Trump but you’d have to remember he got criticized for trying to over step his powers as President. So the governors stepped into shut businesses down and I think that is when the shelves got wiped out in stores. I’ve never seen and I know most of us have never seen businesses shut down so fast . It was like a snap of your fingers from our governors and businesses closed to keep Covid 19 in check and not completely delete our supply of PPE. We were thinking of our front line people and the unknown ways of the spread of Covid 19. The media is responsible for the hype of Covid 19 effecting the minority communities more than white people. Why they played this race card I don’t get why but they did it. So did President Trump down play the seriousness of Covid 19 a yes and a no I believe. He definitely had our attention everyday for weeks on end. But the CDC and his team of people kept us well informed and the media and Democrats played their usual everything is Trump’s fault card. A never ending sh– in the fan and see where it hits and most of it rolled right off President Trump because he was doing everything he could to move Uncle Sam to supply PPE and getting companies working on treatments , faster test and treatments until a vaccine is developed.

So here we sit pointing fingers at one another about a disease that year ago no one knew nothing about. On thing is true though we still haven’t a magic bullet to treat Covid 19 or a vaccine. Yet many of us believe our government has put all its power into coming up with a vaccine and a effective treatment. Progress on all fronts are being made and we in America know that through our faith in God we will end this nightmare for us and the world.

How Time Flies Even When You Have No Fun !

I know to my Democrat friends it must seem like it has been a long 4 years with President Trump in office . Yet here we sit at September 14, 2020 and the Presidential election is approaching at lighting speed. How many lies is the Donald at ? How much more can we throw into the fan. To let it stick on the wall or boomerang back to hit you in the face. How much more can Donald Trump take ? What can we dig up to continue to destroy President Trump ? How can we shake his base up ? How can we build old Sleepy Joe up and make people vote for someone who can’t read a tell-a-propter ? How can we hide babbling Sleepy Joe Biden the perfect candidate that never lies ? How long can we keep old Sleepy Joe Biden away from the hard questions President Trump has been answering for 4 years ? I know all those lies about our job loses to China and the Covid 19 coming from China . Those lies about unemployment before Covid 19 or his lies about closing travel to China while the Democrats were wasting time trying to impeach him. All those lies about trying to get our NATO partners to pick up a fairer share of defending their own borders. Maybe it his lie about telling the UN to stick it because they can’t make the other countries pay their fair share to preserve peace. How about his lie about protecting those that are most vulnerable the unborn. How about his lie about making America First ? Maybe it’s those peaceful protest He says aren’t peaceful as he watches police get beat and building burn ? Maybe you can tell us about all his promises he HASN’T kept. Maybe you can tell us about Lisa Page and Peter Strzok their fair and unbias way they conducted themselves as they investigated President Trump. Maybe you can tell us how President Trump didn’t call for the end of the violence and riots in Minneapolis and Kenosha. While Sleepy babbling Joe Biden hide in his whole in Delaware and said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING UNTIL AFTER THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION. Maybe you can tell us again about Sleepy Joe Biden’s plan to fix the economy a exact copy of President Trump’s. Oh yea but President Trump lies when he put his plan into action. Maybe you can tell us how unfair the 2017 tax bill was even though ALL of US got some kind of a break. Maybe you can tell us how those greedy business people that provide jobs for millions and how you are going to make them pay their fare share to drive them to foreign countries. You can tell us how Sleepy Joe Biden is going to attack Covid 19 differently and wave his magic wand to make it vanish. So far Sleep Joe Biden hasn’t proposed anything President Trump hasn’t. He says a national plan but he forgets like President Trump did , he can’t say jump and have all the states jump.

Yes time flies and the lies of the Democrats keep coming. For almost 4 years of hate has run off President Trump like water off a greased pan. Oh yes Pelosi passed her bills in the House in which she knew were dead in the water in the Senate. Yet I have to say when the Democrats controlled the Senate and Republicans controlled the House it was much the same way. So tit for tat I get it. See but we understand as citizens that there are great differences in philosophies and why pass something you don’t agree with. Well my friends as we continue to read how awful President Trump is and how he is so far behind Sleepy Joe Biden in the polls. Let us remember that a Democrats believe in free speech , riots , burning businesses and only saying something against it when it hurts them in the polls. They believe in killing the unborn and protecting only themselves. They believe in flipping sides on any issue that will keep money in their pockets and it doesn’t matter if it is good for anyone else but them. Remember they support away out of the ghettos unless it gives you a choice on where to send your kid to school. After all those teacher unions and the dollars they give to the Democrats are far more important than our kids. But remember President Trump is a racist because he wants your kids to go to the school of YOUR CHOICE !! I could go on for a few pages but if you are Democrat I’ve already pissed you off enough for today. Keep your lies coming President Trump appreciates the help to re-elect him and so do I !!!!

A Day That I Can’t Forget

Nineteen years ago at about 10:30 I stood in shock as I watched a second jet hit the second tower of the World Trade Center. I had been working on repairing a food machine at Guardian Glass in DeWitt, Iowa. I was working on it when someone pointed out the special broadcast going on and the first Tower of the World Trade Center had been hit by a plane. Of course you have a job to do and you just can’t stop your job to watch even a breaking story on TV. I remember finishing my repair job and then taking my lunch break. Everyone was speculating on what hit the first tower and whether it was a accident or not. But watching that second plane hit the other tower we knew it wasn’t a accident.

A lot of things go through your mind as you see something like that. Being thousands of miles away from the scene it isn’t nearly horrific as it would be on site. Yet even just watching you had to wonder what our nations reaction was going to be like. The shock , anger and the cry for justice came out immediately. Most of us didn’t even realize there were two more planes had hit a places in Pennsylvania and The Pentagon. It’s like a burning ember that won’t go out in my mind. I know for some it sparked a hatred for the Muslims after we found out who was responsible. It never triggered that kind of reaction in me but quest to bring the masterminds of that attack to justice was in my heart. To remove from society those that would do such things and take innocent lives for evil reasons. It brought a unity to this country and the world for a while. It didn’t last long because you had the media pundits trying to say we were at fault and somehow brought it on ourselves. Our nation has gone to great lengths and expense to bring those responsible for 9/11/2001 to justice but nothing can change or bring back loved ones lost that day or the days since. Acts of terrorism continue even to this day and I doubt they will ever stop. We do not hate these people that cause terror but we seek to end their terror. My God says that I should love everyone even those that hate me. He doesn’t say we shouldn’t seek peace by bringing them that cause terror to justice. That isn’t hate to do that but it is the rule of law. We operate in a civil world with laws of order. But even if our enemies are starving we feed them and aid them in disasters. We seek peace even when peace seems impossible. We turn our other cheek and take another slap. It isn’t that we don’t want to hit back but we know that hitting someone back gives them the satisfaction they seek to justify their anger.

Even though we seek peace it doesn’t mean we turn our backs on the people hurt by terrorism. Terrorism has no place in society and cowards that perform those acts upon innocent civilians will never live in peace and not a hole in this world is deep enough to keep us from finding them and bringing them to justice. 9/11/2001 will not be forgot and even as our government pulls our soldiers out of harms way. It doesn’t mean we have forgotten or vigilance is any less. We seek peace but we know evil never takes a break and we know it. If you do this in a name of god it isn’t in the name of our God who create all of us out of love and commands us to love all. We seek peace with a strength of a God who knows justice isn’t hate but a act of civilized world to bring Peace !!

The Real Reason the Democrat Want To Repeal Trump’s Tax cuts

I think the thing that really ticks the Democrats is they now have to pay more taxes and don’t get their breaks in taxes in states where they didn’t change nothing after the 2017 Tax cuts. Here it is in a nutshell better than I can explain it.

  • The TCJA limits the deduction on mortgage interest to the first $750,000 of the loan. Mortgage holders who took out their loan prior to December 16, 2017, aren’t affected. In addition, interest on home equity loans or lines of credit can no longer be deducted, unless the proceeds were used to buy, build, or substantially improve the home.10
  • The state and local tax (SALT) deduction remain in place, but it’s been capped at $10,000. They can deduct property taxes, and either state income or sales taxes.

Now if you read this like me you’ll see that if your property taxes and state sales taxes are higher than $10,000 you can’t deduct them. After December 16, 2017 a mortgage over $750,000. The interest amount on anything over $750,000 is no longer a deduction. With most of us with mortgages $750.000 or under aren’t effected. Now anyone paying either more than $10,000 in property taxes and having mortgage of more than $750,000 are going to pay more taxes. This especially effects people in New York , California , Illinois , New Jersey and other states that didn’t adjust their tax codes to match the Federal tax code. The estimate it will give these states a $137,000,000,,000 tax break if repealed. But you see what it really does is give the rich people in theses states that tax break. The Democrats who are always saying how fair they are and always saying they want to tax the rich more. Really want to understand this in the light of providing a tax break to the rich and famous and rich tax payers in these states. These states want to continue to have the rest of the country help pay the rich and famous taxes.

I get it that if you pay more than $10,000 in property taxes and own a home mortgage higher than $750,000 you are stuck paying more. But in other states were the taxes aren’t so high they have made changes to their tax codes to help with this change. But in others were they use less money to run their states the burden isn’t so high on the wealthy.

The Campaigns Finally Begin

Up until the conventions ended folks they have both kind a been playing political games with each other. Now you find out who is going fish or cut bait. Now the polls begin to show if you are messed up or not. Take a look at the chief flipper himself Sleepy Joe Biden. After almost 100 days of riots, looting and destroying cities Biden finally comes out of his hole to condemn the riots , violence and looting. Let’s see he has know that he is going to be the Democrat Presidential candidate for President but couldn’t say nothing about the riots until after the convention. Something about the flippers in the Democrat Party. You can trace the records of all the major leaders in the Democrat Party and you’ll find they all support most the things President Trump has said about immigration. In fact in some cases you get the feeling that Trump plagiarized some of their speeches. They are like a bunch of old men and women with 10 kids. They start out with all theses high principle and strict rules for their kids. An that is good for the first 4 or 5 kids but you know the older you get the more tired you get and let a few rules and strictness slide some. By the 10th kid you have given up 90% of them. That is how the Democrats operate. Anything that can get them votes to stay in power or they think is popular enough to give them a edge. But the most important element is MONEY !!!!

In criminals cases you’ll hear the detectives say follow the money. In politics in the modern age and maybe not even just in the modern ages POWER IS MONEY ! Control of the money being used by the government and control of the money that runs your party. You have to say and do the right things and if it means your whole Party becomes a flipper so be it. Don’t believe me look at one issue. Immigration used to be less partisan and both parties weren’t that far apart. But now there is the great divide between them. They aren’t close even in non election years. Money from somewhere is supporting the drastic push this fools folly of open borders and unlimited immigration. What you are going to hear from the these very same people. Is going to be this modifying of their position s just for votes. After all you can’t control the money unless you are in power. They might say things like you know we don’t want to completely open the borders. We’ll use all sorts of technology to control it. Pack of lies they won’t enforce if they win !

We have about 60 days until our votes are cast. It’s time for all the real dirty tricks to start but since the media , most magazines , papers , late night TV has already shown that they are firmly in the Democrats pockets we can count their lies and propaganda as the norm. The lies will just get more wild and more evil from here on out. It is almost better to tune them out. They will say everything and anything to say Trump is going to lose and Joe Biden is the answer to our future. This really isn’t unusual because every four years the Democrat use the same lie book. They always say the Republican candidate are going to take grandmas Social Security and Medicare away. Somehow that they hate gays and going to put the blacks back in chains. I could go on for a page or more but why you know the lies. I suppose there are lies on the Republican side , such as the Democrats are going to take our guns away and do away of the Second Amendment. But in some states this has been tried and laws have been pass that weren’t allow to go in to effect because the courts shot them down. Oh well the lies are going to get worst before anything gets better.

Just remember one thing modern day elections are more about the money and power than you or me. It might not be so in some ways if there were term limits. Without term limits you have people serving in Congress with 20 or 30 years under their belts. It is more like a JOB than a representation of constituents. You wonder how districts in Baltimore get so run down. Its because people keep electing the same people who don’t really serve them and because voters aren’t holding them accountable. We limit the terms on the President because it gives him or her to much power. But Congress which controls the power to tax and spend we don’t. Makes no sense at all and we can’t limit their terms without a Amendment to the Constitution or them passing a law to cut their own throats. Congress wasn’t set up to be the way it is but leave it to man to manipulate things for their greed for Power and Money. This should be a time to hold people accountable in our states and Washington but will it be that way? Soon find out !!

Who Are The Real Fear Mongers ?

I keep on reading that President Trump is spreading Fear. Perhaps he is just stating fact and differences between him and his administration and a Biden administration to come. . We go from tax cuts to tax increases. From a wall on our Southern border to none. From non-amnesty to amnesty of 11,000,000 illegal’s. From closed borders to open borders. From a administration that doesn’t believe global warming can be controlled to one that will think it can. From administration that believes American know better what is for them to one that thinks American don’ know how to use their own money. From a administration that thinks we have been short change by our trading partners to ones that thinks we somehow are better off paying more than our fare share in the UN and NATO. From one which thinks it wrong to give a foreign aid to a country and then turn around and let son’s and daughters accept jobs from companies in those foreign countries for outrages salaries with no experience. From a administration that thinks we are getting the short end of a stick from China to one that thinks its OKAY. From one that took 8 years to get a economy back on track to 4.7%. To one that took less than 3 yrs. to get the best employment numbers in 50 years. From a administration that thinks violence’s is wrong from the start to one that thinks you can sit back and say nothing for 100 somedays then blame your opponent. Who has already condemned it and offered help to end it. I could go on a fill this page with all the differences and change Sleepy Joe and his administration would attempt to make. These aren’t really fears if you ask me. Just stated facts that sleepy Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will push. Yes they are scary if you are on the Trump side.

The media keeps on throwing things out there like President Trump wouldn’t willingly leave the White House if he loses the election. Somehow he is the most dangerous person in the White House because he does what ? Haven’t really figured that one out yet. He is trying to draw down on troops in Afghanistan and the rest of the middle east. Perhaps it is because he supports Bill Barr and his pursuit of justice in the Mueller investigation. Maybe because he has appointed Constitutionalist as judges and not people who make their own wild judgements. There are so many things that the media dislikes about Trump that it is hard to know what they do like about him at all.

Well we all ready know what President Trump has planned for the next 4 years and isn’t about raising taxes. Yet we will hear all sorts of wild things from Sleepy Joe Biden. Most won’t be coherent then he is sleepy. They have tried everything they can to bring him down. They keep throwing their lies at him. Today I see they said when he went to the hospital it was for little strokes. That should be good for a few days or a week. Mean while President Trump will continue to throw ice water on all their BS. The real fear mongers are the media and their co-conspirators the Democrat Party. The Hollywood Elite will just keep throwing foul language stupid things at him and lying about leaving America if Trump wins again. Now I see the media and Democrats are blaming all the violence and riots on Trump. It’s all about blaming him for every bad thing that happens. Been that way since day one of his Presidency. That has been plan A and Pelosi said it right after he took office. Something they have not looked at very closely. The voters that voted for him are former plant workers that past President’s flipped off , mine worker , clothing manufactures workers . union workers who had jobs shipped overseas and people who had promises made to them and not kept. Media keep your hate and lies going and Democrats keep telling us how much of a racist Donald J. Trump is and remember you are the one who support killing mostly minority children in Planned Parenthood Centers across this great nation. That isn’t fear my friends Plain Fact. See Hate is a very strong word. God says if you Hate your brother or sister you can’t love Him and He doesn’t know you. From my point of view we don’t hate anyone no matter what they have done. I’ll feed you or cloth you and help you in anyway I can. But it won’t mean that I agree with you and you don’t have to pay the price for your transgression. That is fine and if you feel the same way about me , no problem in book I get it. Because if you are in American we win some and lose some but we are Americans in the land of the Free !!!

A Thing Called Respect

I’ve listened to the media for the pasted 3 yrs. and 9 months and they keep saying President Trump doesn’t respect them. That they aren’t fake news and are journalist. Yet you’ll see a reporter on the streets of Portland with burning building and a person shot. And they will be saying that it is basically peaceful protest. Really !!!!!! That makes no sense. You’ll see Joe Biden crawl out of his hole in Delaware and come out and say that he is against the violence and rioting. After for over 60 days of it he finally says something and has the gall to ask President Trump to demand a end to it too. Really Sleep Joe have you had your TV off for the past 60 some days? President Trump has condemn it over and over again. But no the media will not defend President Trump but join in on Sleep Joe’s band wagon and say Trump is a racist and he is the cause of the violence. They want respect but won’t give any respect at all not even when Trump is right. The fact is the media has been as complacent as the Democrats and Sleepy Joe Biden and not demanding or given a damn about the violent protest and police maiming , looting and out right law breaking. The media and Sleepy Joe in particular only come out of his hole to say anything once it hurts them in the polls after the Republican convention. I dare anyone in the media to find anything said about the riots in any city or the looting at the Democrat Convention. Yes plenty said about George Floyd but nothing said about the innocent business owners that lost their lively hood and building to rioters (criminals). Let’s see who side are you on rioters , looters or law abiding citizens ?

This is no surprise to common sense people in this country. The media wants respect and they side with the law breakers and violence mayhem almost every time. On immigration , sanctuary cities , poop in the streets and killings of hundreds in Chicago , Baltimore , New York City , Detroit or any other Democrat city the media they are inept. They are absent on doing their jobs. The media has sat back even more so in the last 3years plus on purpose to try to blame President Trump for the violence. The media has dealt out it’s hate for President Trump on a daily bases and call him every bad name I can think of and only reason they don’t use cuss words are the laws of broadcasting. It surprises me they haven’t broken those because they don’t respect other laws. I haven’t paid attention to President Trump’s tweets today but I can imagine he is coming down on Sleep Joe pretty hard on his call for stopping the violence. It won’t be because he doesn’t want the violence to end but because Sleepy Joe hasn’t had the guts to say anything about it since the day it started until now. Yea not one word about in his acceptance speech and not a word until he was called out of his hole by the Republicans. Oh Sleepy Joe you can hide somethings in a you hole in Delaware but you can’t hide saying nothing about it for 60 days without the help of the fake news ,who are as guilty as YOU Sleepy Joe Biden!!!!!!!!! .

From day one of President Trump’s administration the media has given no respect to President Trump and in fact they have gone right a long with the Democrats and their destroy Trump theme everyday and all the way. But President Trump hasn’t cowered back in a hole and not said a thing. Yes he has come out in a fire storm of his tweets and walked out of press conferences when stupid question or degrading ones were asked. He has called for the violence to end and to let law officers do their jobs. But the media and Democrats blame the violence on the police and city council and Mayors tie their hand and let the violence rain. The gall is they let the Democrat politicians come on their shows and say stupid things like President Trump owns this violence and blame him for Covid 19. In the last campaign then candidate Trump went to a minority place in I think Wisconsin and he said to those people after pointing out the disparity of the continuing situation they have been in. He said ” why not vote for me and give it a chance. What do you have to lose ? ” That did not just resonate with that minority crowd but also with people that have been left behind because of unfair trade deal , closing plant moving overseas with no one blinking a eye and same things being shipped back to us to buy at the same price, That still resonates today but President Trump has made the priority of getting companies to build here and to employ here. My Democrat friends will point out that some people still need two jobs to survive but the same person couldn’t find a second job during the Obama era.

In any other administration the First Lady would have been on covers of every national magazine and on the Today Show or Good morning America. Oh no but with President Trump we can’t show that respect of our First Lady because she is Trump’s wife. President Trump has to kiss the media’s ass and say they are right that they aren’t fake news. Well bull poop while the media has been complacent and sat back and watch our jobs , cities , schools and government go to hell in a hand basket. Then complain when someone finally takes the bull by the horns and throughs him to ground and says enough and you say he sucks and is a liar, cheat, adulterer, Hitler , Russian lover and everything else. Maybe he waited to long to come forward but either Trump did or we were screwed.

While I’m on this subject of respect there is someone else we have all turned our backs on. We have turn our backs on God and let our liberal judges remove Him from school , public building , meeting and basically our daily lives. The Jewish people at one time had no king and God guided them through thick and thin. They never lost a battle unless they failed in the way God told them to run it. But they insisted on having their own King and said God Okay. They had their own King’s. Some good and some bad but mostly bad until Israel was no more. Carried off to Babylon and in slaved again. Eventually they did return but never to the power they were, But God never forgot them and today protects them still. He doesn’t protect them because they believe in Jesus because they don’t. He protects them because He made a promise to them He wouldn’t desert them. He has kept us the American people safe because we have founded our nation under the pledge of God We Trust. Deserting that trust and turning our nation to the acceptance of all the immoral thing of the rest of the world. Will cost us the peace we have , the unity we have and our basic peace in our society. Time to stop the slippery slide is now for us and our children’s future. Are we to late who knows but by not standing up and saying violence is wrong , police brutality is wrong , not respecting our President is wrong. And the Number One not Respecting God who has protected for over 200 years now is the biggest wrong !!
