This is a new time in history with many things on our minds. Your local paper only let you express your opinion maybe twice a year. Some sites on the internet won't even allow you express your opinions on what they have written. That is what this site is all about. Letting you express your opinions. Be civil and agree to disagree because we are all different and unique people.
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.
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 !!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 sick people has a lot todo 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 likea 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.
Have you ever noticed how are court system works. You lose a battle in one court system and it doesn’t matter. You just go on to another and present your case until you find a favorable one for your item to find victory. How many times do you get to fish for a favorable court system to get the results you want ? My guess that is why appointing judges that are bias to your thinking is important to politicians. It isn’t looking for a set of judges that will follow the Constitution but one that will agree with your ideology that counts and that is what the Democrats do pretty successfully. Yet in the news you will see it as just a lost of a appeal by President Trump and the Republican lawyers . What a tremendous waste of our taxpayers money.
I’m not going to sit here and tell just the Democrats are the only ones guilty of shopping for judges but both parties do it. You would think that there’s a standard to becoming a judge. And technically there is one. They all swear to up hold the Constitution of the United States. But judges are people and they have opinions and they use those opinions sometimes when there isn’t a clear cut guilty or not guilty verdict needed. Perhaps they think that there is grounds to make someone do something or produce certain evidence. What I don’t quite understand is when the Supreme Court rules on something you’d think that is the final verdict. End of ballgame. That doesn’t appear to be so with President Trump’s order to use some defense money to build a wall on our southern border. I grant you that we do have many technologies that are advanced that can be used to surveil the borders. Yet even with those technologies getting spotted going across our border in the desert by a camera or a satellite wouldn’t allow the border patrol enough time to stop them. Were as a physical wall would. This isn’t a issue about race because we don’t care what race you are crossing our borders. The issue is security , law and control of our borders. Of course when you shop for a judge sometimes they make it a issue of race.
There is probably nothing anyone can say to stop this shopping for judges but at least we can understand why so often a issue seems never to go way. Even with the turn over in the Supreme Court issues that were ruled on before come back to get a different ruling because of the ideology of the court has change. To a lot of people it looks like making laws by the use of the courts and it is technically. The political games the parties use if nothing else makes it interesting even if it isn’t that logical. Sometimes too it is a delaying tactic to slow progress down when you don’t agree with a action. Your opinions are always welcome.
Early on when President Trump shut down travel between Asia and the US . Then Europe and the US. Then the UK and the US. The experts were saying that if we did NOTHING that the projected numbers of deaths could be as high as 2.5 million Americans. I know that defending President Trump won’t make me any brownie point but still it has to be done. Those numbers came as President Trump was doing all the shut down of travel between us and the rest of the world. China hadn’t given us a accurate account of the number of deaths in Wuhan or in China itself. Little was known about Covid !9 other than no vaccine or known treatment for it was available. What was President Trump suppose to believe ? So he did the things he did and states did theirs. With the actions of the states and President Trump’s action projections were lowered to about 200,000 to 250,000 deaths in the US. Right now deaths are at about 160,000. The truth is that how the corona virus death count is recorded. If you have a heart disease and go to the hospital they test you for Covid 19 and if you die and have virus in you then Covid 19 killed you not your heart disease. Some states are even saying some deaths they counted as Covid 19 deaths were not Covid 19 related. Even with Flu shots every year depending on the severity of the Flu season that number can be as high as 90,000 deaths. Yet we don’t panic about those deaths or do we close anything because of it. We might restrict people from ICU or hospital visiting if you have Flu symptoms that’s it. With the mediation we have done staying 6 ft. apart , frequent washing hands , staying home and wearing mask in public the numbers aren’t anything to panic about. We only can stay home for so long and sooner or later if you make enough trips out you are going to get hit with Covid 19.
President Trump did the hard thing of closing travel down , getting the experts and a team set up ramp up PPE production and distribution. Yes and it took sometime for that and a faster test. President Trump in all reality shut down a great economy to protect front line workers and keep from flooding our hospitals. Now as the virus hasn’t turn into the disaster that it started out to be. He has tried to get the states open up more and get back to work. Currently as of August 5, 2020 about 61.4 million people have been tested for Covid 19 in the USA. That is roughly 341,000 per day. But that goes back to the days with very little testing at all. The media is running around with their head cut off thinking it is the end or trying to make it look like the end to get Trump. The truth is that with the increase testing which is in the range of 500,000 to 800,000 a day. You are going to find more people that test positive to Covid 19 but most are going to be a systematic or have little problems with it. We all don’t like to see anyone one die of Covid 19 but we don’t like to see people die of Cancer or Heart disease or in car wrecks. But those three things I just mentioned doesn’t make us close our country down for them. Let’s say that somehow Cancer was discovered to be transmitted by air or breathing on each other. Would we shut this country down because of it ?
We are now at a point where PPE is widely available. Respirators, testing equipment and drugs to treat Covid 19 are coming online. That isn’t to mention the way hospital , doctors and EMT are using are better for the protection of themselves and easier on the patients. There are probably a dozen companies trying to produce a vaccine and a dozen more just trying to figure out a way to treat it without a vaccine or in conjunction with it. This all was put in to motion not by Obama or Joe Biden but by President Trump and that is facts even if you hate him. He has burnt up the phone lines and stayed up late working , pushing and twisting arms to find relief from Covid 19 and get us back to work. That’s HIS job ! He knows it and he does take it just as serious as running Trump Corporation and probably a lot more serious.
That is the number one question in the mind of the Democrat Party leaders and perhaps any Trump supporter too. With ninety some days to the election and good old Joe Biden playing hide and seek with everyone you have to question how he can win. He has fail to answer the hard question on how he do anything different than President Trump. Oh yes it is a given he’d try to resuscitate Obama Care and probably rescind 99% of President Trumps executive orders. He’d put end to oil exploration in the oceans off the coast and probably end new flacking. May stop a pipe line or two. But how does this win him the White House ? Order everyone to wear a mask in public if Covid 19 has no vaccine. Does he win by promising to remove President Trump’s wall and letting the flood gates open for immigration. Does he win by just giving illegals citizenship ? It is more than Biden taking the White House. This a election about principles and stark differences between the Democrats and the Republicans. Yes there is a third candidate and yes you can waste you vote on who ever that is. But the Democrats and Republicans as much as they say they want more people to run for office. They make it next to impossible to run as a independent.
The Democrats up to the 2012 election in many ways wanted some control over our immigration policies. With Obama in the White House and catch and release as a policy on the southern border plus the allowance of a influx of Arab immigrants and DACA things have changed. The very party that says it supports strong unions and needs their support. Are supporting bringing in cheap labor which in some industries have cut into union labors jobs.
Now that we are less than 90 day out from the election Sleep Joe woke and decide to make his campaign motto Made in America. Really Joe that is all the better you could do and plagiarize the Trump campaign. He comes out of his gopher hole to first say he do all this stuff to fight the Corona virus and then some his wisdom say we’ll do like President Trumps been doing. Everything of what President Trump had set in motion before the corona virus struck. President Trump has already set in motion all the actions need to keep the virus in check and Joe Biden has nothing new to add.
Joe Biden hasn’t called for end to violence in the cities run by his party. Nothing they are proposing will take any burden off taxpayers but only add with their green new deal. The Democrats like opening our American pocket books to support things that cost us billions but do nothing to help our economy. It’s going to take a lot more than promises that Joe Biden can’t keep to get him to the White House. A lot more than a bunch of meetings in D.C. to discuss something and do nothing. The Joe Biden plan is how do we make the Swamp Stronger and deeper and more intrenched. How do we continue to hood wink the American taxpayers and send money overseas as aid to siphon off some to make our members rich. Sorry folks The Democrats and Joe Biden have no plan and no vision for ordinary American.
With birth of the internet and Talk Radio what the media say’s isn’t nearly a relevant as it once use to be. The most popular Talk Shows on radio are conservative. The progressives in our society try to say somehow they are the majority speaking for our modern society. Yet every where you look what the progressive support is failing. They are failing in our schools , in society as a whole they are failing. Yes , there has been a outcry about gays , LGBT acceptance , Black Lives Matter and a backlash about government over stepping its bounds . George Floyd attracted not just the black communities attention but all of societies attention. Without the pictures from that Smart Phone George Floyds death would have been the black community word against the police with no proof that George Floyd wasn’t innocently killed by police. I don’t think I’ve heard anyone defend that cop for kneeling on George Floyds neck for over 8 minutes. We probably all support the outrage of Black Lives Matter in that situation but what we don’t support is the silence when comes to the numbers of minorities in Chicago , Baltimore, New York City and other liberal cities. Why the outrage just at police and not at city halls where violence keeps going on and nothing changes day in day out, month after month and year in and year out. We as a society want to see a end of the violence in these cities even though we don’t live in them ourselves.
In the media say’s group you get the picture that conservatives want to end public education and kill off unions. Yet in reality we want schools that succeed and educate our kids. But you see public school systems failing and grades coming in lower. We see the discipline that was in the schools in the 50’s and 60’s gone and of course the mention of God is taboo. Reading scores down , Math down and respect of authority down. Yet we keep spending more money on things that don’t work and we say the old way didn’t work either. The percentage of older adults brought up in those old school taught math the old fashion way survived and went on to be the leaders of today and can balance a check book and read most books.
Just because the media say’s doesn’t mean the media is right. The media has a vested interest in the liberal society and they like to push the new fades or trends of the day. For a example and don’t get me wrong the LGBT movement has been pushed by the media not because they are a majority of people but because of a few people who think they are discriminated against. Because of 2 or 3 % of the people society is suppose to change all our public facilities to suit a those few. But the media say’s that the majority thinks that way. I don’t think most people don’t care what you are or who you are. Just as long as you don’t try to shove your style on us. You want to be LGBT, gay or whatever it’s ok just don’t shove it down our throats that it is somehow normal to us when it isn’t.
For the last 3 years plus the media has team up against President Trump and he hasn’t taken it sitting down. In fact if you attack him he doesn’t hesitate to respond. He started calling them fake back in his first campaign and it really hasn’t change. I think they resent being called out and a lot of times proved wrong. They were saying things during Mueller investigation they had no proof of. It hasn’t stopped and media has continued in their false accusations and lies. So with 3 year plus of this with no proof or evidence why should the public believe anything the media says ? We should have real doubts about our media when for this length of time the media has bared false witness against anyone. Why shouldn’t we not question the polls they take or any information they print or say when so much they have said and done so far has been proved false. What media say isn’t always so.
Maybe you are like me and sit down each morning and skim over the headline on Microsoft Edge or Google. I do that every morning anymore particularly since going out for breakfast has been restricted. They loosen things up in recent months and our restaurant’s are open to limited seating’s. Yet if you are over 65 they still advise very limited outside contact. So that I do at age 73. So I read the news and books , walk the dog , mow the grass and putter around the house. But headlines in the news anymore usually evolve around Covid 19 and the increasing spread , President Trump’s actions or inactions of the day and the 2020 Election. They may touch on the riots in Portland and the Feds defending the Federal building. Usually the try to point out how this is pretty much a over stepping of Federal authority. They neglect the facts that since it is FEDERAL PROPERTY the Feds have every right to defend it. One thing you don’t see in the headlines is where is Joe Biden. Politico put the headline out yesterday that read. ” The Media’s Biggest Favor to Biden Was to Ignore Him” I think they got that a little wrong by using the word Was and not saying Is.
Here we are less than 100 days to the November Election and Joe Biden acts alike gopher in March popping out of his hole to see his shadow. Of course in this case to take a swipe at President Trump and telling us how bad a guy he is and the bad job he is doing. He may take a couple questions and then it’s back to the gopher hole. I read no headlines say “Where is Joe Biden? ” I see no outcry from anyone in the media except Fox News and a few other Trump supporters on where old Joe Biden is. They are content to leave him alone and only speculate on his VP pick. After all the American people don’t need to get any answers to questions from sleepy Joe Biden the perfect pick of the Democrat Party because his answers are unlike Trump’s perfect and concise. Yes as the media gives Joe Biden and the Democrats a by for the last 4 years of Hate Trump and wasting millions on investigation. We the public who they continue treat like idiots and stupid voters. Will give the Democrats the same answer we gave them in 2016. Because the no plan man and the Democrats have no vision for a great America and a strong America. I guess we get the preemptive Democrat Presidential Joe Biden candidate’s opinion without any media asking him the hard questions on the issues of the day. He has said a few things about the riots. Maybe a minute or two about them. But is he calling for a end to the burning and rioting or said what he do differently ? We already know what he thinks about the killings every week in the Democrat run cities of America. Black Lives Matter only when police kill or maim them. A perfect slogan for the Democrats ” Your life only Matters When Police either kill you or Maim you . Just be sure you are a Minority ” How is it that Joe somehow is going to solve Global Warming by throwing Trillion of Dollars at it like we have with solving poverty. We have spent more that 19 trillion dollars on solving poverty since LBJ but yet the numbers haven’t changed.
How is old Joe Biden going to bring law and order to American cities when he approve of taking money away from law enforcement ? How is Joe Biden going to pay for all these free things him and Bernie approve of with people ordered to hunker down and businesses operating at 50% of capacity or less. How are we going to get Joe Biden’s vision for America from his gopher hole ?
Perhaps we are already getting good old Joe Biden’s vision with his not giving opinions. He may approve of the chaos in our country and the sites of burning cites doesn’t bring a sadness to his heart. We keep on hearing that the Republicans are the problem and that they want to divide us. But yet I see no issue were the Republicans have been the ones to bring up something to divide us. Did the Republicans bring up the LGBT thing or change from prolife to prochoice ? Did the Republicans bring up Free college or Free Healthcare ? Did the Republicans bring up defunding police departments ?
It’s ok if we don’t hear from the Democrats or Joe Biden. We have already heard enough from the Hate everything Trump does wagon. We already know the Democrats approve of burning cities , since inauguration day 2016 with start of the hate campaign and riots and burning in Washington D.C. . Yea , we don’t need to hear from Old Sleepy Joe Biden. We’ll give him his answer to all his problems on November 3rd and he can just stay hibernating in his gopher hole.
If you are almost religious like I am in reading the news each day you notice a few things about them. It is a little bit like watching the morning news or evening news shows on ABC , CBS OR NBC . It’s like listening to a bunch of plagiarist because they copy each others views in many ways. If they are talking about the Corona Virus. It’s about how far out of touch President Trump is with his views on it. If it is about the riots in Portland it is about how they aren’t that bad. And they it just that these federal agents got to leave because they think they are making things worst, Plus they have no right to be there it’s Oregon’s problem to solve. It doesn’t matter that it is federal agent protecting federal property and these socialist have been trying to burn the place down for 60 days plus. They show these pictures of Black Lives Matter and call them some kind of civil rights group but they won’t say a word about them not giving a damn about the hundreds of blacks being shot and killed each week in Chicago , Baltimore , New York City or any where else. They help the people from Black Lives Matter when a cop roughs up a black citizen but if a one year old is killed in a drive by shooting in a black neighborhood it doesn’t matter to them.
One of the most interesting headlines of the particularly hit a nerve with me when I saw it. I also thought that its past tense stating was wrong. Here it is straight from Politico ” The Media’s Biggest Favor to Biden Was to Ignore Him ” That really is very true except for the Was should be a IS . I think that if any Republican candidate was just sitting back and playing gopher like Joe Biden. The media would be all over them screaming bloody murder about the Republican candidate silence on the issue of the day before a election. Then of course I could be all wrong because they don’t have any love for the Republicans. Joe Biden continues to stay in his gopher whole and pops out to take a swipe at President Trump every once in a while. Yea he takes maybe a question or two. Yet he doesn’t have the time to go on the Chris Wallace Show and answer some real hard questions. He wouldn’t have the guts to go on Hannity and get some real pointed questions. Everything he has said he’d do about Covid 19 President Trump has already done. The big deal of the mask to the press and President Trump is a nothing burger. President Trump is probably getting tested more for Covid 19 than any other person in the world. His nose is probably getting sore from all the swabs. We do have rights to say no we aren’t going to wear one. I’m not saying it is smart to not wear a mask in public but you have a right not to and the businesses have a right to say stay out without one, Now the signs should say ” No Shoes No Shirt No Mask No Service ”
So the Headlines of the day are full of the Covid 19 pandemic and President Trump picking on the media or the drug he thinks helps heal us. His thoughts on the riots across our great country. His thought on voting by mail or any other subject the media has thrown at him in a day. But the silence from the gopher hole that Joe Biden is in continues. The Media’s Biggest Favor to Biden IS to Ignore Him. And that is the Democrat game keep Joe Biden in his gopher hole and blame it on Covid 19 or the sniffles or something. Just don’t let him open his mouth to insert foot and call his wife his sister again !! Your thought are welcome.
There is a Darkness in this world. It isn’t new and it isn’t different from a darkness that put a blemish on mankind since the Garden of Eden. It is always there portraying of a better way for mankind to do things. In most cases it really looks like a light and it is presented that way. It is that all inclusive presentation. It seems to be a answer to prayers. It brings out the ability to say for years, we’ve been in a darkness and now new light shines upon this taboo that makes it ok. Now these sins in life are not sin but just something we hadn’t figured out to make good yet. It’s the evolution of man’s brain now that makes man wake up to our misguided ways. Do you get the picture yet ? Well let me go on and explain.
Mankind has always been a bunch of suckers. Since Eden we have wanted to control everything ourselves. We have wanted to make our own rules to create a perfect utopia. But there has been someone or some power that has stood fast in man’s way. We call this power God and of course there are those that say see God meant these things to be good for us. They even say that there is no God and somehow from the vacuum of space where nothing exist. This all just came to be. Like watching David Copperfield make things from nothing. They throw away good science for dark science. The good science of atoms , proton and neutrons that make up all things even us. They throw it away to say this all just came to be without any thought or planning. Nothingness all whirled around in no where land and then we were created.
This darkness has shone us the new light that somehow aborting millions of babies a year is a good thing. Now they have step into say that there aren’t just two sex’s but multiple ones and it is good. The darkness is getting braver by the day because it somehow thinks it has the Light on the run. The darkness says see these evil police they sit back and shoot a kill innocent blacks. So it is ok to riot and destroy cities and even burn black peoples businesses. Just collateral damage and besides government is so stupid they’ll pay to rebuild it. The darkness sees no need for police and that somehow neighborhood watches or someone will keep people safe. Maybe if we don’t have police crime will magically go away. Somehow the darkness see beating up a old man or woman in their 80’s as ok. Maybe it is because they look at the age of a person and think , they have out lived their usefulness. Darkness is deep and deceiving. There is nothing wrong with doing wrong. You knock a guy on his butt because he has Trump hat or a Biden hat on. Nothing wrong with that. You break the window out of a car because you don’t like the Trump or Biden sticker on it. Nothing wrong with that. It’s ok to say just ” Black Lives Matter ” and not include anyone else.
I’ve painted a pretty dark picture of this darkness that is trying to consume us. That has been intentional and I think it is accurate. I think that even though this darkness is trying to consume the Light it can’t win. Because the Light created all things and darkness only came to be because of freewill. No matter what it looks like The Light is in control. Darkness can’t kill the Light because Darkness came out of hate for the Light. The Light someday will push all that Darkness away and anyone consume by it will be push to a place of its own where it will never hurt anyone again. I perhaps will catch some flake for writing this but I even though the Darkness scares me the Power of the Light holds me firm.
I use to think politics was sort a like a game of sports. You enter the game and put your qualifications forward and the issues you support. You run for the office and you win or lose. Then you shake hands with your opponent and either go serve or go home. That does sound a little cut and dry that way and it is by today standards. I guess thinking at the end of a campaign you just agree to disagree and go home is naïve. In the age of President Trump or even perhaps the last few President’s it has been getting more cut throat than ever. I know that if you have been reading my blogs that I’m a Trump fan. Yet I can take Donald J. Trump out of the equation all together and I’d still vote Republican. Does this take my bias away ? I’m not sure.
Let’s just look at the issues. I think the issues for us voters are pretty well defined. First immigrations is a very big one for most of us. It isn’t a question of race or where people come from. It is a question of national security and control of our borders and protection of the American workers already here in the United States. You just can’t open the borders and airways to let everyone that wants in. Those that want to take our rules of law and throw them away are the same ones that supported the rules of law in the past. The question to ask yourself is why have the Democrats flipped on immigration. Really it is rather simple immigrants with less education than even the one here now are more likely to vote for Democrats. They have to have that dependent vote. People are trapped in low income status. That’s why you see no progress in the ghettos of the big cities run by Democrats. They have the votes where they want them and the people to blame are those rich Republicans that want things like open school enrollment.
The second big issue is health care. It really centers around pre-existing conditions. This really is a big issue to most people because sooner or later we all may fall into this class of patient. If you are working and say have a heart attack. You are all right unless you lose your job and then need insurance again. It then gets very expensive for you and may almost impossible to get insurance because you are now at risk for another heart attack. Instead of sitting down and figuring this out we have a political tug a war going on. This can be solved but you just can’t lay all that expense on people of good health. Either make it a separate welfare system .
We do need to pull back from our dependence on China. It has been a one way street and a dream of open markets in China for our goods is a dream and has been a dream. Promises never kept by China and won’t be with Joe Biden in charge.
The economy would be one of the big reasons to vote for the Republicans over the Democrats. Right now with Covid 19 the Democrats are crying for a continued shut down of the economy and they are all talk and no action as usual. They complain about Trumps reaction to it and everything Joe Biden says he would do President Trump has already done. Of course if all you pay attention to is CNN you probably be right because they really don’t pay any attention to Trump. We can’t stay at home forever and the longer we do the more it destroys our economy. This is right were the Democrats want us dependent on government for our daily needs.
The biggest reason I can’t vote for the Democrats are they don’t want my vote or anyone that supports Prolife. Every year they reject thousands of future votes in the babies that are aborted. They don’t care and they don’t care that the majority of those babies are minority. Why would I vote for people who think more of protecting the life of a dog , cat or any other animals more than protecting a precious a human fetus. Now does that make sense babies mean less to the Democrats than dogs or animals. I’m probably going to get some static for saying that but if you think I’m wrong show me how. Better yet stop killing babies and figure out some other way to help these unwanted babies.
Now you can say I’m bias towards President Trump but regardless even without Trump I rather vote for people that believe in saving lives and making life better for all. Than voting for people who think it is alright to kill babies , watch cities burn , watch our economy fail and don’t respect law and order for all.
While our President takes all the questions , complaints , news conference’s and Covid 19 briefings. Joe Biden snipes out of his basement and maybe answers a question a day. While President Trump makes hard decisions and catch the flack for sending federal officers into Portland, Chicago and maybe New York City . Have we even heard whether Joe Biden even gives a damn about what is happening or what he’d do if he was in charge ? I know the good old Joe Biden is the presumptive candidate of the Democrat Party and that being said he has a few questions to answer and some pretty big ones. Joe Biden reminds me of a time when I use to go to the Carnival and shoot those 22 rifles at those pop up targets. You got more points for hitting the pop ups. I guess if I was shooting at old Joe Biden I wouldn’t get to pull the trigger very often.
Now just perhaps Joe Biden’s absences isn’t his idea. Could it be that the longer they can keep old Joe in his bunker. The less chances of him inserting foot in mouth. The less often he’ll have to answer those hard question President Trump fields daily. President Trump has already demonstrated his willingness to talk to the press and the American people. He steps out of the White House and many times is hit up with many questions from reporters who are always their. He tries to take their questions even when they are mean spirited. If President Trump loses which I don’t think he will. I’ll miss President Trump and fearless approach to serving us as President. I hate to see the good old boring press briefing with all the low ball questions from the Democrat press fielded.
While I’m at it where oh where is the media and all their curiosity of what Joe Biden is thinking or even doing all day. Perhaps President Trump is right Joe is sleeping a little more than normal . Yea, I know a low blow but then I can’t hit him he isn’t coming out to answer any questions. At least when President Trump is absent we can find him hurrying around on a golf course in Florida. I guess it is easy to stay ahead in the polls when you don’t have to answer any questions. Probably plan A knowing the Democrats anyhow. Had no vision when Clinton ran for President and still no vision with Biden running. Oh I know continue Obama’s legacy. Yea , at least 5% unemployment , 18,000,000 people on food stamps and no job growth. Have at it Joe you should be able to sleep through that.
