Gremlins In the Workplace

It has been a few days since WordPress suddenly without warning turned half of my screen black. That caused me to panic and waste a lot of time trying to figure out what I did wrong. Even more time was lost trying to make the black screen go away. Evidently a reboot was necessary. If it happens to me today, I will change to a new blogging platform. I’m too old to be wasting time shooting at invisible gremlins in my system.

I. and I spent a nice weekend relaxing in a community some seventy miles north of where we live. It was relaxing until time to come home on Tuesday. I can’t explain why, but the seventy miles took two hours to traverse. I was a stressed old driver at the homecoming.

I spent the entire next day catching up on my desk work. We are in a project involving the Department of Homeland Security and providing them with our personal info is scary. I spent the better part of the day scanning and uploading docs, pages upon pages of docs. To me they ask for stupid things which have zero relevance toward our case. If it weren’t so damned important to I. and I, I’d tell them what I think of their requests.

Leaving for a three day trip every week and a half really changes a lifestyle. I’m learning to pack things like chargers, and computers, passwords, toothbrushes, and razors so that I can try to have a more normal life experience while traveling. My conclusion is that I’m too old and crotchety to be traveling anymore.

The week before I set out to have my driver’s license renewed. I’ve reached a point where I must now do it every two years, and boy did that too years fly bay. I reached the Secretary of State building in Chicago Heights only to find it boarded up and empty. A Google search informed me that last year during COVID a BLM riot caused the building to self ignite and burn. On my way home, I stopped at a new Toyota dealer to check out a new car. It’s been a few months since I looked at a car. The last time it was February and I was at my dealer having an oil change. I spent the time teasing a salesman about buying a car. He gave me a quote which I felt was five thousand dollars too much. This time Ii went to a dealer closer to home, and did the same thing. This time the vote came in five thousand dollars higher than the last one. I’m keeping the Death Star for a while longer. At least until the auto shortage in our country disappears, or I die which ever event occurs first.

Every time I watch the news and listen to our communist president speak I get the urge to shoot the tv. Then I reconsider after I realize I like the tv better than I do this president. If there is anything more that he and his army of comrades can make go wrong they will do it, and do it fast. I give them credit for the speed with which they are destroying our country. They have about a year and a half left before the next election tips the balance of power away from them doing anymore damage.

Sending VP Kamala Harris to Guatemala was a great idea except she didn’t stay there. Her idea to get to the root cause of why people are running away from their country was spot on. Her solution which is to give the powers to be money to solve the problem is stupid. She is giving it to the wrong people. The money should go tot he people who are starving and need it to eat. The best thing I saw on the coverage of her event were the signs telling her to go home. I give them credit for seeing through her plan to make Guatemala the same as San Francisco.

While Kamala is pandering to the Guatemalans good old Biden is stammering his way through the G7 meeting in Europe. No doubt after his visit the entire globe will jump in to take advantage of his weaknesses. China will probably engineer another virus to release on us with a local epidemic. After the damage done by COVID the Chinese will predictably be able to put us out forever. They will probably be assisted in this effort by every one of the 196 countries in the world. After all who wants to follow a loser. The crowd always aligns with winners.

I quitting this piece while I am still getting black words on a white background, and before the Department of Homeland Security sends me another list of dumb questions to answer in writing with documents to prove my answers. I spoke too soon. The black veil of death just dropped on my post. As I began formatting this post with pictures the black screen happened again. Bye-bye WordPress.

A Piece of History to Learn From

This is an incident I was totally unaware of. I have always wondered what would happen if “we the people” decided we have had enough. This video answers the question. It also answers why the local police are equipping themselves with armored cars, and military trained policemen.

Here  is another more recent example of how our government reacts to an organized citizen protest.

Why am I worried about these things? What will happen if our economy collapses and the country comes to a standstill. Bread costs a hundred dollars a loaf if you can find it, milk is two hundred dollars a gallon if you can find it, cars are out of gas and left where they did. No body works, and you begin to tear the woodwork off your house to fuel a fire to keep warm. What will happen then? The president will declare martial law, and suspend the Constitution. He becomes a dictator to save the country. He decides which camp you will call home from this point on. You will be killed if caught on the streets after curfew. We learn to live by a new set of rules, and our dream to enact term limits has vaporized. What will you do? The government is training for what they will do, but we will be an untrained chaotic mob.

I would rather solve the problem before we get to this point. That is why our government has to live within the constraint of a budget and not spend more than it can afford. Overspending will ultimately result in economic collapse.

Call your Representative today and demand that he/she support spending cuts, and the repeal of the ACA.

Afraid Of Our Own Shadow

I thought the reason for establishing the Department of Homeland Security was to get all the Federal Agencies to talk to each other so terrorists wouldn’t slip through the cracks. Watch this hilarious, stupid, and scary video about what we get for our tax dollars.

Flying Bullets and Home Invasion

The gun control argument prevails. The video below is an excellent argument for having high-capacity magazines in your weapons. I’m sure liberals will cry and scream about the need for any weapons at all. My argument is that a bullet gets results faster than a 911 call.

This morning I read a stupid article about suicide. The author stated that 18,000 some suicides will happen this year because there is a gun in the house. Folks, if you are contemplating suicide and you don’t have a gun in the house, I am certain you will find another way to kill yourself.

We need guns and ammo to protect ourselves from criminals, and a run away government desiring to transform America into a communist state.

How many bullets should you have in your gun?

 

My Three Wishes

Last night I tossed and turned trying to fall asleep. It was one of those nights when I was so tired I could not keep my eyes open watching TV and finally gave in to the lure of the bed. As soon as my head hit the pillow, I was wide awake feeling aches and pains from every joint in my legs, back, and shoulders. When I finally did fall into a deep sleep, I dreamed. Usually, when a person is in REM sleep, he vividly remember dreams. I dreamt.

A special person visited me in this dream, a fairy God Mother. She looked just like a Disney fairy, all pinkish with a blond pony-tail and long eyelashes, her wings fluttering like a hummingbird’s. God Mother waved her magic wand over my head and sparkle stars twittered all about me. Then, in a sweet soft voice she whispered in my ear, “I’ll give you three wishes. When you wake up you will write them down for me and place the list under your pillow. There is only one condition, each wish must cut a Department of the Federal Bureaucracy.”

I awoke this morning with a king size head ache, and I only drank one glass of Jellybean Cabernet with dinner. I concluded the head ache resulted from trying to decide which three agencies I wanted to close.

At first, I thought this would be easy. There are so many departments to pick on. Which three would give us the biggest bang for the wish? Everyday, I hear about stupid stuff being done by the administration through the agencies. For instance, today there is an article about how a simple stupid program initiated by Bill Clinton to even the playing field for poor black farmers by giving them a subsidy of $50,000 dollars a year has exploded into a mega nightmare. There is fraud being perpetrated by farmers. Like kids who plant a package of seeds and then make a claim. There are many other scams as well. It really got wild when poor Hispanic farmers began crying foul and discrimination. They want a piece of the pie too. So the Department of Agriculture is high on my list this morning, but that does not trump my final selections.

Here are my wishes:

1. The number one department I wish to shut down is the Department of Homeland Security. This is the biggest mistake made by President George Bush after 9/11. I feel so much safer now, don’t you? Especially after we learned the Boston bombers were taking trips to Russia for training, the Russian government warned us, and we failed to act. Yes, I feel so much safer now knowing that DHS with its budget of forty-four billion dollars and  over two hundred thousand employees is vigilantly watching out for us.

Another reason to hack the DHS is their stock pile of bullets, guns, and light armored vehicles. Recently I began reading a book about Hitler’s Gestapo and I immediately thought of the DHS. Is the DHS to become Obama’s Gestapo?

Immigration and  Customs Enforcement (ICE) embedded within the DHS is the one that really scares me. Why? Because they ignore the immigration laws and turn their backs on illegals crossing the southern border by the thousands. The National Review and other sources reported that several thousand illegals have crossed into the US from countries classified as terrorist. How does DHS expect to protect us if it deliberately ignores immigration laws, and allows radicalized muslims to enter?

2. My number two wish is to shut down the Department of Education. The entire country jumped up and down to attack our Second Amendment rights. They are so upset about some wacko kid breaking into a school to shoot kids. Yes, he killed a bunch of first and second graders before killing himself, so our liberal population wants to declare the entire USA a no gun zone. At the same time, these same liberals bury their heads in their anal opening about the travesty being committed by teachers, unions, and school bureaucracies. Teachers fill the kids with ideas designed to promote socialism or other political agendas. Unions protect members and don’t care about teaching kids to read. The worst are the school districts with their massive overheads built only to keep their kingdom growing. To hell with failing kids we need more money to support our pensions and health care plans.

God forbid a school district acknowledge that a competitive charter school can do a better job. Those damned charter schools have proven over and over to work better than public schools, but it means a very large bureaucracy would swallow the Jim Jones Kool aid before they let that happen.

3. My third dream wish is to shut down the EPA, for one reason only. These people pretend to care about our planet, and concoct ideas like Cap and Trade to cut carbon emissions, add methanol to gasoline to reduce the amount of foreign oil, set mpg limits that are totally unreasonable, cut off the water supplies for small towns and not let them rebuild a pipeline from a mountain stream to the town. They limit pollution for the air, water, and what else? Some of it has been good, but they fail in my book for one gigantic reason. They do not take responsibility for allowing the desert across southern USA to become a trash pit. If a single EPA guy took a helicopter ride along the border and several miles inland he would see a trash depository destroying the beauty of a once pristine desert. The thousands of illegals from Mexico, Central America, and Mid-East march through Hell’s Highway and drop bottles, clothing, food, etc, all items we consider as garbage along the way. The desert looks like a landfill on a windy day, from the Pacific ocean in California to Brownsville Texas.

The three wishes lie under my pillow as requested by my Fairy God Mother.
