America Needs A Dictator

I’m wondering if the American dream has self destructed. With all of these hate groups running around free to do as they please, and obstruct others the question of whether or not liberty and freedom have been out-grown. When the country started we had an entire continent open to men who could find a place here where they could do as they please. If you had a gripe with someone and needed more space you moved west. When living in the wide open spaces, if a desperado knocked on your door looking to steal what you had, you could shoot him, or worse he could shoot you shove your body out the door, and move in. More than four hundred years have passed since the Pilgrims found the continent, and two hundred and forty-one since the country began, and the population has grown from a boat full to over three hundred million people have moved here to escape a place they felt was oppressive. They came with many new ideas of what they needed to be free, and to have liberty. In time the population has grown more dense, and the wide open spaces have narrowed significantly. You can’t just shoot someone who bothers young get away with it anymore.

Every law that has been passed encroaches on our freedom and liberty. Usually, the laws are for good reason i.e. to protect us from ourselves or from someone else. We now have so many laws that a new industry has grown up around it. We no longer send our kids to work in factories because they don’t exist here anymore. We send our kids to law school,  medical school, political science school, or finance school. All of these new industries have been pointing us toward a loss of liberty and freedom. It is easy to see how too many lawyers all needing to feed families will work to defend us from the thousands of laws being thrown at us. It is almost as easy to understand how having too many doctors begins to make us feel we have aright to health care, and political scientists are all dreaming up new ways to make government bow to demands like eliminating freedom of speech, or making me like someone of a different race or color. Political Scientists also come up with brainstorms like socialism, Arab Spring, Black Lives Matter.  Too many bankers are inundating us with dreams of living the high life by investing money we made working in factories. So where is a guy going to go to get away from all of this, MARS? If you want a factory job you have to move to China, Mexico, Central America, or the far east. The problem is that when we begin thinking about what we’d have to change in order to go live in another part of the world we realize that America is not such a bad place after all. If only there was peace, no terrorists, or protest groups.

I propose that we should install a Dictator. They have unique ways of dispatching protestors who oppose them by killing them, or throwing them into imprison first, and letting them die a slow death in prison. Dictators have very strong connections to the military, State Police, local police, and body guards. One nod to a chief and you are smoke. The big problem with dictators is that they don’t allow anyone to have freedom and liberty except themselves. What a dictatorship does accomplish is to unite all the different protestors into one big solid group that might be big enough to fight back. When we study the past, and we only have to go back a few years to see solid examples of dictatorships we find that the protestors never had a large enough base to fight back. Not until another country or a huge group like the Muslims became involved,. Take Saddam Hussein as an example. No one wanted to take him on until the USA decided it needed to play, and took him out. Of course that left a big void to fill. We were naive enough to think that the Iraqi protesters would all embrace democracy and set up elections within a week after the pulled Saddam out of his hole. Except for one thing. Democracy doesn’t come in a box from Amazon.

Muammar Gaddafi is another dictator that required the muslim world to take him out. Rebels from several muslim states banded together using money supplied by the USA. The rebels chased him down and finished him in fine muslim fashion. Except he also left a huge void. The protestors have not united, and the country is a mess. Under Gaddafi it was a country filled with miserable people. After Gaddafi, Libya is still filled with miserable protestors.  Another dictator whose days are numbered is Bashar al-Assad in Syria. SO far it is taking, ISIS, jihadi rebels, Syrian rebels, The USA and Russia, but the job is still not done. When it finally does happen, will these various groups come to a sensible way to lead the country? Not a chance, the war will go one until the last man standing is a Muslim.

So why don’t we take a chance with a dictator and see if we can save America.

These Facts Speak

OBAMA-GUN-CONFISCATION.jpg

The reality of gun control

Very Interesting facts about gun control – which are NEVER discussed by naïve liberals or the media ……..But we should trust the government?

There are 30,000 gun-related deaths per year by firearms. That is not disputed.
What is never shown, though, is a breakdown of those deaths to put them in perspective, as compared to other causes of death.

• 65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws
• 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and mostly justified
• 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons
• 3% are accidental discharge deaths

So technically, “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100 (0.17 x 30,000).

Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation?
• 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
• 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
• 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit
• 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington DC (a 54% increase over prior years)

So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.
This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation or about 75 per state. That is an average because some states have much higher rates than others.
For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.

Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not the tool (guns) driving this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So, if all cities and states are not created equal, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.

Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths?

All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime, but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault; all are done by criminals to victims and thinking that criminals will obey laws is ludicrous. That’s why they are criminals.

But what of other deaths?
• 40,000+ die from a drug overdose – THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
· 36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths
• 34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities (exceeding gun deaths, even if you include suicide)

Now it gets good

200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical malpractice.
• You are safer in Chicago than you are in a hospital!
• 710,000 people die per year from heart disease. Time to stop the cheeseburgers!

So what is the point? If Obama and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease would save twice the lives annually of all gun related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.).

A 10% reduction in malpractice would be 66% of the total gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides. Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions! So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns?

It’s pretty simple.

Taking away guns gives control to governments.
This is not conspiracy theory; this is a historical fact.
So, the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts.

Dear Senator

Correspondence

I wish my letters to Senators were as eloquent as this man’s.
**************************************************************

April 3, 2013
Senator Patty Murray
Senator Maria Cantwell
Washington, DC, 20510
Dear Senator:
I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.
Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.
Last year, the president spent an estimated $1.4 billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $ millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America’s answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the “perfumed princes and princesses” of our country.
In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. “Obama Care,” a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it, substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.
You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the “one percenters,” consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the average U.S. Individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).
You understand very well the only two rules you need to know –
(1) How to get elected, and
(2) How to get re-elected.
And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called “safety net” has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps – pretty much all Democratic voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud with absolutely no congressional oversight?
I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.
As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 – 1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” I’m only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?
While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.
As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me “You’ll just have to take a pill,” while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator, while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.
The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go online where many others will have the chance to read one person’s opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.
I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.
My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off, while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare bring it up.
Sincerely,
Bill Schoonover
3096 Angela Lane
Oak Harbor, WA 98277

The Arrogance of Congress

Imagine every page of the House Bill H.R. 3962 loaded with doublespeak, and references to prior bills, and paragraphs. Each branch leading to a new trap for the American consumer. Each one leading toward a take-over of our liberties. How can our Representatives be so delusional as to think that the contents of this bill are good for their constituents. All they know is what their leadership is telling them, VOTE FOR THE BILL.

My guess is that H.R. 3962 is loaded with perks for congressional leaders, and new ways for Congress to become wealthier off the tax payer. Health Care? There may be a hint of that in there too.

Will the bill create jobs? You bet it will, but they won’t be doctors or nurses, they will be highly paid government  clerks who will interpret the law and decide if you get treatment. I’m positive the law will be loaded with ambiguity, thus giving those clerks more control over you and me with their interpretations. In the meantime, salaries for doctors will be frozen. Their ability to make more money by treating more patients will be removed from their control. They will be given a quota of patients to see. Once they have seen them, they will go fishing.  In the European system, the doctors meet their yearly quotas by hustling in the early part of the year, then they go on vacation for the remainder of the year.

The Democrats invented Medicare back in the nineteen sixties. Since then it has become the standard for health care. A crummy one at that. What amazes me, is that Medicare must be something that only the wealthy get. Otherwise why would it be stripped of five hundred billion dollars from its budget to help pay for HR 3962?  This is clearly another example of the redistribution of wealth. The government is going crazy thinking about how  it will pay for the healthcare of all the baby-boomers coming into the system.  Their answer, redistribute the wealth of the senior health care system  to pay for an even larger system, and ration health care for seniors. Who cares  if seniors die early? Liberals encourage seniors to die early, just as they encourage controlling the population by murdering unborn babies. Medicare has put a monkey wrench into that philosophy by extending life. Therefore, kill Medicare to kill seniors. 

If you are wise, you will get sick in the first six months of the year, and die just before you are ready to retire.
