BOOK REPORT

May 24th, 2017

After my post about Hypatia and Ernesto’s telling me that there was a movie about her, I looked it up on the Net and bought one. It arrived a few days ago and this evening I watched it. “Agora”. So, Movie Report, actually, and quite the learning experience. I owe you for that one, Ernesto.

Nothing has explained to me more clearly why Christians are such hypocrites than that movie. That religion was based on force and subjugation, lies and brutality, far more than I’d ever suspected, but what I never knew that disgusts me most is that it was Christians, not “Romans”, who burned the Library of Alexandria. It was Christians, and they did it to wipe out the “Pagan beliefs” that conflicted with their pack of lies.

It was Christians who set Humanity back in it’s quest for knowledge by about 1200 years. It was Christians who provided the foundation for the creation of Islam, which is based entirely on the Christian Bible. Muslims worship Abraham, the Hebrew patriarch from whom all Jews trace their descent, even while they hate all Jews. Muslims are hypocrites because Christians are hypocrites.

It was Christians who created the Dark Ages and tortured people to death for seeking knowledge and today it’s still Christians who seek to stifle knowledge by preaching idiotic crap like Creationism and who promote the destruction of all life on this planet by placing human life ahead of all other forms of life, because we’re overpopulating and destroying the habitats of everything else.

It’s Christians who fight against birth control, including abortion, who demand that the most unfit born among us be kept alive, with the result that we’re steadily becoming weaker, stupider and less fit as a species.

Many of us blame the Jews, since Christianity and Islam both have their roots in Judaism, but that’s wrong. Judaism sprang from Mesopotamian religious beliefs, as it was the Mesopotamians who converted the Jews to their belief in one god instead of many.

In the end, all religions are nothing but fear of the dark and a belief in magic that’s ingrained in human genes. The huge success of the Harry Potter movies is just the latest proof that we’re still willing to believe that the impossible can be true.

ATTENTION SPAN

May 22nd, 2017

Suddenly all the media is focused on Pres. Trumps visit to the Middle East, first to Saudi Arabia and then to Israel. He’s the first American president to travel directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel and the first to ever visit the Wailing Wall, also called the Western Wall, at the base of the Temple Mount. Not just that but he wore a yarmulke, that little Jewish cap, placed his hand flat against the wall, closed his eyes and appeared to be praying. Boy, not much like Obama, is he? The Libtards are going nuts.

The Fascist Liberal media anchors are all picking away at any tiny thing they can blow up and distort in their efforts to say something bad about Pres. Trump’s speeches, his actions, the way he combs his hair…

And they suddenly seem to have forgotten all about the claim of Russia colluding with the Trump campaign, and all the other bogus claims they’ve been raving about, because Trump’s trip is NEW news, and the old news is rapidly losing traction. General Flynn is going to take the 5th and won’t testify before the Senate, so there goes that, and Comey’s statement that Trump asked him to stand down on the Flynn investigation is in direct contradiction to his earlier sworn testimony to the Senate on May 3rd that no one ever asked him to do that.

This may not turn out to be anything, but it might, too. A really ugly, big-mouthed black Rep. Al Green, Democrat, has been running that big mouth, screaming for Pres. Trump’s impeachment, and has been getting threatened himself with being lynched if he tries it. White people are getting damn tired of black aggression, and these racists screeching for Pres. Trumps impeachment are highly unpopular. This sounds to me like the possible beginning of some serious payback. I certainly hope so.

I SEE THE STRATEGY

May 21st, 2017

What happens when a great sports player, a quarterback, a champion boxer, a race car driver, is accused by the nearest loser of cheating? First, some of the other losers join in and demand an investigation of the winner, they question people who know the winner, they review video tapes, they want tests and testimony.

But what if, while they’re in the middle of making all this outcry and claims of wrongdoing, what if this sports player ignores them and goes on to win more games or races or matches? Pretty soon, all those sore losers start to look pretty silly, and stupid. They start to look like nothing more than the sore losers they are.

President Trump has been steadily winning in spite of the players arrayed against him. Now, directly after meeting the Saudi Crown Prince in the White House, he has gone to Saudi Arabia and spoken to the combined assembly of 50 Islamic states and told them that we will protect ourselves first of all, and that they must deal with the problem of Islamic terrorism because it’s their countries that are producing it, and at the same time, has signed enormous trade deals that will dramatically strengthen them against their worst enemy, Iran.

What a clear message! We have the technology and we’ll sell it to you at fair prices to protect yourselves from the intentions of Iran, BUT, you have to start policing yourselves, you have to control your imams, you have to curb their terrorist rhetoric and return Islam to being peaceful. You have to rein in the terror attacks.

if any of them don’t, then they’ll be outside of this great umbrella of protection, but if they do, they get to take part in great trade deals and become more prosperous.

And there, right there, is the CALIPHATE that the terrorists claim to be fighting for. Saudi Arabia is the religious leader of all Sunni Islam nations, it’s the center of their world, and this is a call for them to finally unite. Who issued this call, in the name of true peace? President Donald Trump. He’s made it clear that if they stop ISIS, stop the call to violence, that we will stand behind Saudi Arabia and that Saudi Arabia will be their protector, and further, that prosperity will be their reward. A Caliphate of Islam, dependent on security and prosperity provided by trade with the United States.

The Saudis have been PRAISING Pres. Trump and his wife, welcoming this new relationship with America, and his next stop is Jerusalem where he’ll lay out his Israel-Palestinian peace plan. The Palestinian terrorists have been financially supported mostly by the Saudi Royal Family and other Saudi donors and logically this has to stop, as a condition of the arms deal with them, so Trump can make his peace plan work. The Saudis have much to gain and nothing to lose by agreeing to this, since their years of efforts to destroy the Jewish state haven’t worked anyway. Without support, with their backing gone, the terrorists of the Palestine Territory will have come to the table.

The timing may still not be right for Pres. Trump to move our embassy to Jerusalem, but when it is, he will, I have no doubt.

When someone keeps on winning because of their obvious ability, sooner or later the sore losers get tired of looking and sounding like jackasses, and stop trying to steal back a trophy they never earned. Even if they don’t have the sense to be embarrassed, most of them shut up when they realize everyone else has walked away from them. Winning is the simplest strategy in the world for silencing sore losers.

US GOVERNMENT AT WAR WITH ITSELF

May 18th, 2017

President Trump just posted a tweet that “This is the biggest witch hunt in history”, and he’s right. It isn’t just the Democrats spouting lies about him and making up false accusations, he has the RINOs in his own party doing the same thing.

In the forefront of this RINO onslaught are the usual suspects, John McCain and Lindsay Graham, but a few other Republicans, relative unknowns, are now claiming to be the first to have suggested impeachment. I’m afraid that the Democrat crazy black woman, Maxine Waters, beat them all to it. She’s been screaming for Trump’s impeachment since Inauguration Day, and hoping someone would find some thin excuse for it.

Now that Pres. Trump fired that worthless weasel Richard Comey from his job of running our FBI according to his personal dictates and in violation of law, Comey has claimed that he was asked by Pres. Trump to interfere with an investigation, without offering any proof of this. The claim is that he wrote this story down in some memo somewhere, but no one has produced this memo.

This is on top of the story concocted in some British tabloid months ago that Trump and Putin collaborated on the Russians interfering in our Presidential election to get Trump elected, with not a shred of proof of this ever being found after months of serious investigation.

The British actually have a saying for a mess of this sort, it’s “a tempest in a teapot”. A storm with no meaning or substance.

I am worried, though, that President Trump may be driven out of office on false charges. If there’s enough RINO Republican votes along with what will certainly be all the Democrats, it’s possible that he could be impeached while having done no wrong, and the Globalists will finish the destruction of America that they started.

I’m starting to fear for my country again. The Swamp is fighting back. I sure hope Pres. Trump and his team have prepared for this.

WOBBLE

May 17th, 2017

The “Man-Made Global Warming” proponents want us to believe that the whole planet is warming up due to us humans pouring carbon dioxide and methane into our atmosphere. These are Greenhouse Gases, of course, that help the Earth hold in the heat it gets from the sun. The more of these gases in the atmosphere, the more heat the Earth retains, and that, of course, increases the average temperature of the planet.

As proof of this global warming story, the facts are cited about the melting Arctic ice. It’s getting thinner and melting away, and the Arctic is warming. This is true. About half of Earth’s glaciers are also melting. This is true too.

There’s just one little problem with the story. The other half of Earth’s glaciers are growing, and the Antarctic is getting colder. Antarctic ice is rapidly becoming thicker and expanding outward, even as the Arctic ice is retreating, and the average temperature of our planet is actually pretty stable.

Something else is happening, though. Weight, one hell of a lot of weight, is shifting from the North Pole to the South Pole. Guess what happens to a spinning ball in space when you start moving weight on that ball from one place to another. Can you guess? I can. You cause the spinning ball to wobble because you destabilize that ball’s axis, and that’s because the weight displacement is not perfectly opposite the other pole. It doesn’t happen that smoothly either, it’s like taking a little off the top and pasting it on the bottom off-center of where it was on the top, and doing it in spurts. The result is wobble.

Earth’s magnetic poles have switched places abruptly in the past, we know this from the alignment of iron molecules in rocks. They don’t always end up in the same place, either. For instance, the South pole could move to the middle of Australia and the North to Nebraska. This is because the Earth’s skin, its mantle, floats on the liquid ball of Earth’s interior, and when weight at the poles is unevenly distributed and causes enough wobble, that excess weight causes the skin to move, to seek a new point of balance and equilibrium.

This is what caused the mammoths to be found frozen solid with daisies still in their mouths, in the Arctic permafrost where daisies haven’t grown for at least 10,000 years. But they did, because that whole area used to be in a warmer latitude until it suddenly got moved to the South pole.

I hope it doesn’t take too long for the next skin slip, I want to get wobbled over to Hawaii.

PSYCHOBABBLE RAP

May 16th, 2017

Tell you ’bout a dream that I have every night
It ain’t in Kodachrome and it isn’t black and white

When I dream I don’t screw around. I have DREAMS, boy, and last night’s was a prize winner.

I was in an open field, there were some other people around, a few, nobody I knew. What was special was that the sky was all wrong, there was a wide, long streak of jumbled colors in the sky overhead that had no business ever being there, and I knew that the planet Earth was in big trouble.

Then a huge brown leather boot appeared dimly in the heavens and I thought it must be a mirage, it was too impossibly big, it was enormous. Yet it descended down through the clouds as if it were actually real and falling, and I wondered if it was going to hit me. But it landed a long ways off, still huge in appearance, and made the ground shake, so I knew it was real and no illusion. I gaped in wonder at this amazing anomaly.

As the sky began to look increasingly weirder, a ship, a round space ship shaped like a rocket and covered in all sorts of knobs and protrusions, very detailed looking, landed nearby and a woman came out wearing eyeglasses, with a bushy head of white hair. I was surprised because she looked completely human, and she was just as surprised at my appearance. We both thought the other must be our own race, yet when we spoke, our languages were alien to each other and we then realized each other was an alien.

I was right about Earth, it was doomed, but the alien woman took a liking to me and invited me aboard her ship. Last thing I saw in the dream was looking out a window at the vastness and blackness of space and the receding Earth.

All of this in brilliant living color. How’s that for one kick-ass dream. huh? I think I had it in self-defense, I’m so goddam sick and tired of the constant political bickering and attacks. Dreams like this are far more fun and entertaining than the constant dreary, hateful crap that keeps spewing forth from the MSM.

MOTHER NATURE KNOWS BEST

May 15th, 2017

One of the latest flaps over gender dysphoria is going on in England right now, where one of the top private schools is changing over to “gender neutral” school uniforms that allows boys to wear skirts.

Gender confusion is becoming steadily much more commonplace and will continue to do so, and is going to occur more and more in children approaching puberty, and younger, and there’s a good and natural reason for it.

Back in the early 1960’s, an American ethnologist and behavioral scientist, John B. Calhoun, wrote about his studies of rats. Basically, he found that as population density increased, so did social unrest and homosexuality. The same is true with humans and some other species and has been proven to be so. As Earth’s population continues to grow, homosexuality continues to increase. There are now 7.5 billion of us on Earth and our numbers continue to grow. Social unrest, such as riots as we’ve seen and mass migrations of people escaping starvation and wars, which cause even more population pressure where they migrate to, is going to increase. The murder rates are rising everywhere.

This is the species protecting itself and trying to reduce it’s numbers. We have a built-in instinct to stop reproducing at a certain point of population pressure, and homosexuality is one obvious way of accomplishing that. Killing each other is another.

There’s plenty of other indications of this trend of sexual confusion. Women fighters have become very popular in mixed martial arts bouts. Not boxing matches but bloody beat-downs that were socially unacceptable for women not very long ago. More and more women are doing jobs traditionally reserved for men, and more men are doing jobs that only women used to do.
In the more overpopulated nations, Japan, Germany, in fact most of Europe, the birth rate has severely declined. In Japan the young people are losing all interest in sex.

As an observer of humanity, I’ve had a lifelong dislike of homosexual behavior, and while it still isn’t for me, my attitude has changed. The more I see the destruction to our planet from our excessive numbers, the more I applaud anything that might stop it or even reverse it. So if the children decide to change their sex, thereby preventing themselves from reproducing, good. If lots of men and women become homosexual, good. If the more violent among us kill each other and themselves off, good. Whatever it takes short of killing off everything else in the process, is good. I’m all for Mother Nature.

SIMPLE WORDS

May 14th, 2017

Something about Pres. Donald Trump has interested me since I first took notice of him in the news, long ago, and that’s his very simple way of speaking. He repeats himself constantly, he puts things in very plain words using very common language, and then says it again and maybe a third time. He seldom uses big words, he keeps it simple and by repeating himself, leaves no room for error of his meaning.

Listening to him, a person can get the impression that here is a man of only modest intelligence. While he constantly touts his successes and brags himself up, he does so in simple terms using simple words, and seems like a rather stupid man who thinks much too highly of himself. What a mistake that is, to think so. People are likely then to try to appeal to his ego and disregard his possible negotiating skills.

This is a masterful act by a man who knows to never show his cards. When people are off their guard it’s much easier to maneuver them into giving you the deal you want.

FOMENTING CIVIL STRIFE

May 12th, 2017

Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) was loudly verbally harassed by Democrat activists at a town hall meeting when he began to explain his position on the American Health Care Act, and why the death of his special-needs daughter affected his views. The police had to be called in to ensure his safety.

Democrat paid activists are more and more frequently invading and interrupting local events like these town hall meetings, which are held so that the people can interact with their elected representatives like Rep. Tom MacArthur. This is a branching-out of their activities, beyond the sit-ins, live-ins, Occupies, violent demonstrations, online hacking and general harassment, and these are similar to the tactics of Adolf Hitler’s Brownshirts that helped him become the dictator of Germany and make war upon the world.

In this case, the uniform is all black with face masks, and the goal is the same, to spread as much social discord and strife as possible with the intended result being riots between the Right and the Left. The more bloodshed and death the better, is their view, because if they can’t take over the country outright, they can at least cause a lot of damage to our society and nation.

They’re finding, though, that there’s a lot more people on the Right who are willing to stop them, than there are on the Left who are willing to go to prison. This is why so many paid agitators, and most of that pay is coming from George Soros. But even billionaires have limits, most of their wealth is tied up in assets such as stocks, bonds and real estate, not liquid cash, and a $billion isn’t so much anymore. Only 40 years ago it was a really big deal to be a millionaire. Not anymore, and there’s a limit to how much Soros can spend to harm us.

Almost all the Left’s efforts today are verbal. The really obnoxious, intrusive stuff is by small groups in small areas and actually seems to be diminishing, though I’m predicting a major effort in the heat of summer, some staged riots in a number of major cities, one after another and very likely several at once. How these are handled will be the determiner of any future disruptive efforts, and I’m sure I’m not the only one expecting this. No doubt preventive measures are being planned even as I type.

So get your popcorn ready and get comfortable, it’s going to be a hell of a show while it lasts.

A WOMAN AFTER MY OWN HEART

May 12th, 2017

Hypatia (355? – 415 CE)

She is one of the more romantic figures in science. She was the daughter of Theon, a mathematician who taught at the great school at the Alexandrine Library. She traveled widely and corresponded with people all over the Mediterranean. We know of her only through her letters because all of her work was destroyed when the Great Library of Alexandia was destroyed.

She taught at the school in the Library in Alexandria, Egypt. Letters written and addressed simply to the philosopher were delivered to her. She taught mathematics and natural philosophy. She is credited with the authorship of three major treatises on geometry and algebra and one on astronomy. She invented several tools: an instrument for distilling water, an instrument to measure the specific gravity of water, an astrolabe and a planisphere.

“Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.”

She wrote that “All formal dogmatic religions are fallacious and must never be accepted by self-respecting persons as final.”

“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies.
To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing.
The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.
In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth often more so, since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable.”

Ancient truth is still truth. I only disagree with her on that point. Truth is not a point of view, points of view are merely opinions. Truth is immutable, unchangeable and forever. On religion, no one has ever put it so plainly that all religions are equally false.

MEDIA MATTERS

May 10th, 2017

I see where Michael Savage, the famous commentator, is attempting to advise President Trump on how to “save” his Presidency. His assumption that the Trump presidency needs saving isn’t shared with many others, and he goes on to say that Pres. Trump “needs to stop Tweeting so much”.

Every time Pres. Trump issues one of those little bursts of text, all the media pick up on it and every one reports it exactly as it was written. Of course, almost all the media then totally distort the meaning of it, spin it into something else, and spew out another ration of hatred. BUT they can’t avoid printing it as it was written because everyone else is doing the same.

Now, when Pres. Trump makes a verbal statement, gives a speech, it’s so much easier to take things out of context, out of the middle of a paragraph or sentence, that then sounds utterly different in meaning than when it was in context. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY Pres. Trump issues so many short tweets. He makes it impossible for the media to change his words and at the same time forces them to report what he says.

Other: I came into the house this morning after watering the garden, to find a message on my answering machine. It purported to be from the Internal Revenue Service, and supposedly regarded a case they were bringing against me, and to call a phone number that was repeated 2 more times. Most Americans are pretty afraid of the IRS, they have a nasty reputation of making poor, destitute people out of wealthy people and then sending them to prison.

This is a scam phone call, of course, and when you call that number, someone will try to scare you into giving them your credit card info to pay for a supposed debt you owe the IRS. In reality the IRS never calls first, they send out letters. But these scammers are making a lot of money doing this, and our government says it’s one of the biggest fraud problems in the entire country.

My home phone, by the way, is a little black box with an antenna on it, cellular technology, that I plug a couple of normal phones into. Hard-wired phones are just about a thing of the past, along with public pay phones which have all disappeared and become collector items. There’s several things about cell tech that disturb me, and one is that they make your actions and whereabouts traceable. While that can be lifesaving it’s also a serious breach of privacy. Another is that the sound quality is so crappy, and a third is that connectivity tends to be poor. Combine poor sound with a poor connection and you’re suddenly aware of how much this technology still needs improvement.

YOU’RE FIRED!!!

May 10th, 2017

Yeehaw, President Trump fired that lying sack of Obama appointee, James Comey yesterday. He had to have been the worst FBI Director in our nation’s history, which is actually pretty fitting when you consider that he was appointed by the worst president in our nation’s history.

Pres. Trump is starting to seriously clean house. My previous post was about exactly this, I guess he must be reading my blog, or maybe it’s just my incredible psychic powers reaching out to him and guiding him…. riiiigght. I suppose I need to have a bit more patience, he does have a lot on his plate. Seeing Comey gone was important to me, though, so I’m glad to see that he’s not averse to doing what needs to be done even while knowing the howls of outrage and tons of flak will be hurled at him by the Democrats.

Now let’s see some major prosecutions!!! Right now, dammit…. yeah, okay, patience… right.

SO MUCH THAT COULD ALREADY HAVE BEEN DONE

May 8th, 2017

I don’t understand… There’s so very much that Pres. Donald Trump could have done by now to set old wrongs to right. There’s those two Border Patrol agents that were sent to prison for long terms for shooting a wetback Mexican in the ass. He was waving a gun at them and they fired on him, he turned to run and one bullet hit him in the butt, and for that they’re sent to prison? W. Bush commuted the rest of their sentences after they’d been locked for a few years, but these guys need to be PARDONED and I mean NOW.

WHY isn’t our Attorney General Jeff Sessions PROSECUTING ANYONE? My god, there’s a long list of known violators of Federal laws and nothing is being done, all the IRS crooks under Obama, too many to mention and NOT ONE prosecution has been forthcoming in the past 100+ days OF ANY KIND from this guy. What the hell is he there for? His smile?

Moving our embassy to Jerusalem, reversing the Federal land grabs of many millions of acres by Obama by declaring huge tracts to be national parks. Many other such simple things.

Cutting off our funds to the West Bank and Gaza Strip terrorists, cutting off funds to the UN. Hell, getting out of the UN altogether. There’s 100’s of Obama appointees still in our government that need to be fired and replaced.

What he’s done so far looks to be good stuff, mostly anyway. Now I want to see more, and lots more. Faster. Sooner.

SOME ARE DEAD, AND SOME ARE LIVING…

May 8th, 2017

At least this blog is still alive. It was teetering on the brink yesterday, it’s been one problem after another ever since WordPress Auto-Update tried and failed to update to the latest version, and only succeeded in fouling everything up.

Since then it’s been a constant round of talking to ISP techs and messing with various file configurations. Last night I succeeded in returning the thing to a previous save, and deleting two copies of this domain that had no business being there, and what do you know, the header is back and it looks normal again.

There’s still a few loading and login glitches, or at least I’ve experienced some this morning, but I’m hoping that they’re the result of browser cache and not anything deeper. Time will certainly tell. Meanwhile, Auto-Updates are turned OFF and are going to stay that way.

Now for the Dead. I refer to France, of course, where 66% of the people there are dead. Not today, perhaps, but it may not be too long as they’re certainly suicidal. They proved that by voting for that Globalist Macron, who will bring in more and more Muslims to hasten the demise of France as a free nation and kill anyone and everyone who refuses to kneel to their imaginary god of blood and death.

I have fond memories of France as a young sailor. Those young ladies were so very fine. I’ll just keep to those.

KILLING WESTERN EUROPE

May 5th, 2017

No, this isn’t a Bill O’Reilly book, this is just a little commentary of how Globalism is destroying Western Europe.

The creation of a European Union was the beginning of the end, because it created a brand new power base that never existed before, and of course it was the Germans who were at the heart of this eventual debacle. Three times the Germans tried to conquer Europe and the third time, they succeeded, not by force of arms but by the power and lure of wealth.

The core reason given that Europe’s nations should join this Union was that the more of them working together as a unit, the greater their economic clout in the world would be. A Union of European nations was touted as being synonymous with wealth and power, and the people voted for it.

What they really voted for was the end of their sovereignty as nations and their subservience to an unelected cabal of Germans who dictated their policies for them, both domestic and foreign. Took away their border guards and allowed free access between them, gave them a common currency, and in mixing all of them up together, destroyed their individual cultures forever. One big European nation, united under German rule. What could possibly go wrong?

The Germans have always been self-destructive, and after reducing themselves and most of Europe to rubble twice in two global conflicts, what was to stop them from doing the same thing again? They’re a dictatorial people, and the strict rule imposed on member states of the EU along with self-destructive policies (a German specialty), is the cause now of members wanting to leave that union.

It’s too late for much of Western Europe to save itself, not because of the loss of national identity or the flood of Eastern European workers, but because of the millions of Muslims who’ve swarmed in and absolutely will not assimilate, but are taking over instead, and the obstinate leaders of some nations who remain committed to the Globalist ideals in spite of the collapse going on all around them.

Eastern Europe isn’t in nearly as bad a shape, and a few of those nations have refused to accept any of the Muslim migrants and supposed “refugees” (who for some reason are almost entirely young Muslim men of fighting age). This has the EU leadership very upset and making threats, but not wanting to impose any penalties for fear those nations will simply leave the EU. They may anyway as the EU collapse continues, which it will as the Muslims terror attacks increase, tourism totally disappears (which it almost has now), disruption increases, production decreases and so on.

It’s hard to say what’s next other than that the wonderful, varied culture of Europe lays in ashes now and the infrastructure may follow suit. Time will tell and meanwhile my plan of maybe re-visiting a few places there like London, Golfe Juan, Cannes, Athens and Naples has been cancelled. I wouldn’t recognize them anymore anyway.

ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE

May 4th, 2017

Two GOP legislators, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and Colorado GOP Rep. Ken Buck are introducing legislation to let states annually import 500,000 foreign blue-collar workers (Mexicans) and white-collar professionals (India, Pakistan, China, Islamic nations) to replace “Americans who have fallen out of the workforce and into drug addiction”.

The bill would allow states to each get 5,000 visas for additional foreign workers per year, plus a population-based share of another 245,000 visas, plus a share of any visas not used by other states. The inflow of foreign workers would start at 495,000 in the first year, not counting the additional family members of each imported worker.

The bill would also create an amnesty, because the visas could be given to 11 million plus illegals living in the United States, including those who returned to the United States after being deported.

This is right after Pres. Trump was just at Snap On Tools, in Wisconsin, where he signed the Buy American, Hire American executive order, that this Republican Senator from Wisconsin now wants to hire in a half-million Mexicans and give amnesty to 11 million more.

This is what’s wrong with our country. We have too many people running it who are only out to enrich themselves at the expense of our nation and our people.

Here’s the bottom line on what this Senator is telling us: Our government leaves our border unprotected, so that Mexico can bring in mega-tons of drugs that addict our workers and make them unable to work, so that our government can then make us hire Mexicans in their place. Does anything about this seem wrong to you?

NOW, MAYBE?

May 4th, 2017

Discovered last night that the login thing was messed up again, called the service provider this morning, got hold of someone from Bangladesh or that region who didn’t understand me, nor I him, hung up, called again and got “Travis”, who sounded American, and he fixed it in about 2 minutes. Finally.

Meanwhile, with all the plugins having been deleted by the previous techie, the site’s been buried in SPAM comments because the SPAM blocker was one of those plugins. A new one is installed so if you have any trouble leaving a comment, that’s why, it’s blocking you, so please send me an email telling me so, the form is at the bottom right.

It will take a day or two before I’m sure that clearing the server cache has fixed the problem but my hopes are ever high and my spirit undaunted, and so forth.

PROBLEM SOLVED

May 3rd, 2017

The login and comment issues were caused by WordPress. WordPress wanted to update my installation. Foolishly, I had Auto-Updates enabled, and their new update conflicted with a WordPress plug-in I’d installed, “Sticky Posts”. So the update failed and Sticky Posts then malfunctioned and cause the login problems.

I had to get a tech on my service provider to do the needed fixes, which he did, and now Newsbleat is all updated and working well, once again.

So. Back to making Firefox my default browser again.

TO ALL AND SUNDRY

May 1st, 2017

and Mundry and Tuesdry too. OPERA is now my default browser and Browser of Choice.

FIREFOX AS OF NOW, OFFICIALLY SUCKS! Mozilla Firefox NO LONGER SUPPORTS JAVA and that means you cannot properly access my WordPress blog. Because, WordPress requires JAVA to be enabled in your browser.

If you are still living in the Dork Ages and using Internet Exploder, and having trouble here, then the latest ActiveX update you probably downloaded automatically may have disabled Java, OR, you have an outdated ActiveX and an updated Java, in either case your Java has gone FUBAR and you need to re-enable or just delete the damn program like I did.

Log In and Comments require JAVA, or as they say in Mexico, HAVA. Just kidding. Not. Anyway, get Opera. It’s pretty cool once you get used to using it.

TAKE A NUMBER

April 30th, 2017

All governments like to keep track of their citizens, for several reasons. The first and primary two reasons are to be able to collect taxes and conscript men for war, but there’s other reasons, perhaps less compelling but still important to those who govern.

So to do this, they use various methods. The Romans used to have at least one government representative in each village or community, who wrote down who was born, who died, kept track of how many sheep, goats, geese and so on each farmer had, how much land they owned, what crops they harvested and how much, and so on. When tax time rolled around, they and their books would set off to the place of taxation and if anyone listed claimed less than they’d made, or failed to show up at all to pay their taxes, they were in trouble because it was already known what they owned and had earned.

Here in the US of A, our supposedly honest leaders enacted the Social Security Act, which was voted for and accepted by the citizens because it proposed to ensure that old people would not end up without some small income to survive on.

To make sure that everyone got this benefit, everyone had to sign up for it, and everyone was given A NUMBER. The Social Security number. Many people complained that this would be used as a national identification scheme but our very honest politicians assure us that Noooo, this was only for Social Security. So of course it’s used as a national I.D. number in everything. Naturally.

What started this train of thought was thinking of the Amish. They don’t take part in Social Security, so they have no Number. Their children are born within their communities instead of hospitals so there’s no Birth Certificates or any other notification to our government of their existence. They don’t serve in the military unless there’s a draft, which there hasn’t been for years now, and when they do, they’re conscientious objectors and will not fight.
People like the Amish must drive our government nuts.

Then there’s all the illegal aliens. There must be 30 or 40 million of them here now, but no one knows for sure, because record keeping in Mexico and Central America is poor and most of these people aren’t on anyone’s radar at all. They’re like Amish that way, as far as governments are concerned they don’t exist because they have no number.

No one ever comments on this, but you know, if all the Social Security numbers were erased from government records, our government would literally collapse. That’s all it would take. Just delete the entire number base and whamo, no tax base. Only corporations would be left to tax. Of course, the upside, if you can call it that, for our government anyway, is that there would be no more Soc. Sec. payments, saving our government a truly huge sum. All those starving old and disabled people might not think that was such an upside, however. ;-(
