Will I Ever See the Inside of Church Again?

Why do I need to make a reservation to visit the Lord? He was never that busy before to not let me in. This time, however, it is not because He is busy, it is because government thinks it is safer to stay away from Church. Safer? Since when did visiting with God depend on my safety? I would rather place myself in harms way than to avoid the Almighty. Dying may not be so bad after all. Isn’t that the goal of life is to die? Dying gets us to the pearly gates, it may not get us in, but at least we may get to see the gates. Who knows perhaps I’d get a sneek peek at God Himself when the gate opens for someone to enter?

Religion is not something I normally discuss out loud and never in public. Unlike politics, which I shoot myself in the foot with all the time. Politics is different than religion, thank God for that. It would be nice, though if politicians practiced their faith more when running for office. I too often get the feeling that I am supposed to forgive all the lies and deceit spewed by politicians as political rhetoric. Somehow lies become allowed when speaking politically. I would really like politicians to tell me their personal definition of a lie.

One of the most common arguments comes from taking a statement out of context and labeling it a lie. For instance. Back in January, he said the Chinese COVID-19 Virus is harmless.” three months later after science has proved that COVID-19 is deadly, we claim the speaker told a lie. Duh! At the time he said it he based his statement on the scientific evidence of the day. It wasn’t a lie it was a statement that has been proven wrong by time. Yet, I detect false claims of lies almost daily on the news.

Polls are another form of lie. Yesterday I reported counting yard signs along the highway in Wisconsin and took an impromptu poll. I reported that Biden was ahead of Trump in Wisconsin. Did my poll really prove that? No. Polls need data, lots of data that can be statistically calculated with some degree of certainty that the prediction is correct. I venture to say that six yards signs on a short piece of highway is not statistically accurate. When I worked as an engineer, I was always placed in a situation where I needed to come up with answers immediately. Most times I was trying to determine if a new design was better, stronger, etc. than the standard. With the time I had to do the work I used a method I had developed to make the assessment. Years later After taking a course in statistics I learned that my method was one of pure guesstimating. I had a fifty fifty chance of making an accurate choice between designs. Now, when I hear reports stating that a poll shows one candidate ahead of another I laugh and dismiss it completely. The trouble is that average citizens do not look at the statistical relevancy of a poll, they merely remember the result they hear reported. To me that report constitutes a lie, but the result is touted as the truth.

When I look at candidates, I try to assess them relative to past performance. If it is a new candidate who never had a political life before, it is harder, but I then look at the candidates character and his record in his current job. If the candidate has been in office before I look at his promises and measure them against his results. Did he keep his promises. Did I believe the promises he made were in alignment with my own politics? If he kept his promises then I would be prone to vote for him. If he made promises, but absolutely no effort to fulfill them I will not vote for him, he is liar using political rhetoric only to gain my vote.

The one thing I had against Obama was his promise to “fundamentally change America.”

“Into what?” I asked, Obama never really answered that but during the course of the campaign he let out little hints that he was heading the country toward Communism. One particular hint came during a discourse with Joe the Plumber at a rally.

Another political scheme is to use the free press as your personal propaganda machine. It was no secret that the Democrats control the political message. The lazy free press buys the lies they are fed hook line and sinker and never challenge any of them. To this day, the free press that the Founder’s said was necessary to keep politicians honest has chosen to become an integral part of the machine. They constantly manufacture news by manipulating videos, photos, and interviews to lead people to their way of thinking. All of it is a giant lie. It is hard to understand which news organizations meet the Founder’s concept of reporting fairly.

My choices for political office all boil down to whose message and reporting do I trust the most. Of course that comes only after I chose the candidate that most closely agrees with my own political ideology.

Compare Trump to Biden

I haven’t paid much attention to either candidate yet, but when I do see something it resonates with me. Since I am a heavy Trump fan whenever I see a Biden commercial I listen carefully to determine how the two candidates differ.

Yesterday, I listened to Biden and his plan for fighting COVID-19. It is the same as Trump’s word for word. I think he was reading from the Centers for Disease Control website, wear a mask, social distance, don’t go out if you feel sick etc. Where Biden does deviate heavily from Trump is on taxes. Biden will certainly raise our taxes to the point we will be crying uncle. It is my opinion that the Federal Government is way too large and the currently over-spent budget of Trillions is a hundred times larger than it needs to be. When will we as Americans learn to fend for our selves? Why do we believe that Uncle can take care of us better than we can?

Both candidates are old and can experience a health problem at any second. If they do have a problem, which Vice Presidential candidate has the best chance of running the country? My confidence is in Mike Pence. He has shown considerable leadership as a former governor and as VP. His performance as leader of the COVID-19 Task Force has been commendable. He clearly has more experience in getting things done than does Kamala Harris.

More scary to me is that if Biden has a problem and continues to lead who will really be calling the shots behind the scenes? Another old guy like Bernie? Or worse yet some political contributor who will remain invisible to the rest of us.

I am amazed at how little experience a presidential candidate needs to have in order to run the world’s strongest country with so much money to control. Other than popularity and some organizational skill to get a political campaign up and running there is little else to help decide which candidate is the best. Since Trump now has almost four years of performance behind him he has shown me that he is a capable leader in both domestic and world affairs.

And that is all I want to say about that.

Not My Bag Of Tea

The peaceful protests across our country are telling us one thing; there are a lot if sick bad ass people living here. Why they are so mentally sick is not clear. Maybe they think they are being patriotic and the only way to cure the country is to tear it apart. My question is what the heck are they trying to cure? I have often played a scenario in my mind about the next revolution against the government. In my scenario we are always trying to keep our freedoms. In today’s rioting the protestors are trying to establish the opposite of freedom. They want to control every aspect of our lives and they won’t stop until they have succeeded. They must know that their ideology of socialism, progressivism, communism will never work and it has been proven not to work too many times.

If I were leading any aspect of the government I would need to be restrained from blowing these protesters to hell. I give some of these mayors, governors, and the President credit for being patient to allow the protests to play out, but will they play out? Eventually, when all businesses, government buildings and monuments have been destroyed, and they have nothing else to apply their anger towards they will have to end. Otherwise they will begin to hurt themselves.

I see the news casts daily and they exploit the fires and the broken windows with people running in and out of stores; their arms loaded with booty. Add this to the damage we must live through caused by the COVID-19 nonsense and America has met a new type of terrorism perhaps worse than any Muslim form we’ve seen on our shores. At least when we see the Muslims as the enemy we are not afraid to blow them away. With these new terrorists we see them as peaceful protestors, and we must protect their Constitutional rights. I say to hell with them and fight fire with fire. See, that is why I am never going to be in charge.

The one positive thing I see in these nightly car burnings is that they are making Ford, and GMC very happy. All those burned cars will be replaced.

Insurance companies will take it on the chin at all the stores because I’m sure that every business has insurance against these types of events. Of course the insurers will opt not to cover any new events in the future. The entire damage will be owned by the businesses. I wonder how many will decide not to reopen. Will the protesters consider that a victory? All it will do is force them to move to another neighborhood where there is still some business going on.

My recommendation is to let the National Guard loose in these communities and let the bodies pile up. I don’t think they will use rubber bullets like the police do. Let the mainstream media show me dead bodies stacked at riot sites and I predict the rioting will stop, and the people living there will be applauding the mayhem.

Tens Seconds to Puke

Last night I watched ten seconds of the Democratic National Convention. I never thought I would live to see the day that a professed communist addresses the nation on live tv on a daily basis. Read the history of Bernie Sanders and tell me if I am wrong. This guy has a screw loose if he really believe that Socialism = Communism is right for the world. The only people who love Communism are the leaders who are in charge. They love tending slaves which is what all the other people in the population are, and they are the slave masters wielding the bull whip to keep us in order.

I would really like to see what our country would be like if all the news media was totally unbiased and not leading the charge toward socialism. Maybe, just maybe we would be more civilized and orderly.

The First Amendment right to free speech puts the media at an advantage when it comes to spreading harm. They are allowed to write things that are totally wrong and hurtful without any consequence. The more sensational their message the more money they make. When it comes to making money the socialist news-media becomes capitalist, and hides behind the First Amendment.

And that is all I want to say on that.

If You Want To Change History Do It Right

I saw an article on Breitbart today headlined “Ice Cube: Undoing White Privilege Means Reimagining What America Should Have Been from the Beginning”. I thought why did he stop at the beginning of America, why didn’t he go back to the beginning of the slave trade? If you want to rewrite history make it good. By going back far enough to not have slaves in the first place we wouldn’t be having these protests by Black Lives Matter, and ANTIFA. The root cause was not the founding of America but the establishment of the slave trade.

Ice Cube believes by rethinking America the way he would like it to be that everything would be different and lovey-dovey. The way I propose, it would be lovey and America would honestly be founded on white privilege because blacks would have remained in Africa, and America would have been established without prejudice or segregation.

He is stuck in his revisionist history because he wants America to be founded on equal blacks and whites. He truly believes that abolishing slavery at the very beginning would have given blacks equal opportunity. What he fails to realize is the cultural and educational differences between seventeenth century blacks and whites was huge. How long would it have taken the black civilization to bridge that gap?

Given that if slavery was abolished in 1776 and if there was no prejudice, or segregation perhaps this would be a different world. What I don’t understand is why we keep trying to change history? Other than giving us a some nice fiction to read what betterment does it serve? It does serve to give guys like Ice Cube something to write about to stay in the news and keep his fan base going.

We are stuck with what we have and dreaming up scenarios about how things could have been won’t solve anything. What we need to be visioning are some viable solutions to our problems and what America will look like when we accomplish those goals.
