Odds and Ends?

  ~ It looks as though martial law a state of emergency in France has been extended for another 3 months. Could the problems they’re facing be the result of a progressive socialist government or just plain incompetence? Is this writing on the wall for America?

I reference a French proverb: 'It is too late to lock the stable door when the steed is stolen.'

  ~ With 55 stores in Puerto Rico, can the government tax Walmart out of business? With $72 billion in debt they can’t repay, it’s not only bankers they want to put on the hook. A 91% effective income tax rate to be levied on them only, they claim it’s unconstitutional.

Being the largest employer and supplier in Puerto Rico, can you imagine what would happen if Walmart closed their doors for 90 days? Rioting? Government coup? The Red Cross and National Guard would have to deliver food and water to the entire population, similar to hurricane devastation.

  ~ After Ken Stabler’s post mortem diagnosis on his brain, I read a headline comparing football with human sacrifice. With over $20 billion a year in revenue, several countries would welcome human sacrifices. Puerto Rico would have to procure a federal permit through their bankers.

Super Bowl commercials? $5 million for 30 seconds. Tell me it’s not about the money. At least it’s still supply and demand, even if it is for mega corps.

  ~ I truly appreciate Hilary Clinton’s honest response when asked why she accepted $675,000 for her Wall Street speeches: “That’s what they offered”.

Is there any question she won't perform for the highest bidder? My daddy had names for women like that... predictable is one of them. :P

Strawberry fields in Iowa

Has Bill lost it or is it the hydrocodone?

My first thought was Schroeder from Peanuts...
And then a televangelist couple.

 ~ Why isn’t the media applauding the GOP for its diversity in their Presidential candidates? Two out of the three top picks in Iowa are Hispanic! The stench of hypocrisy is breathtaking, isn’t it? Who’s in bed with who? Or is it whom?

I guess the MSM is looking forward to the day that the government will provide them what news they can and will report. Questioning the information will be considered subversive and treasonous.

 ~ If public schools have to compete with charter schools for students, they will sure have to step up their game. This may be the best hope for educating our children. The bureaucracy will fight it to the death.

 ~ You can’t build ponds on your property in Oregon without a permit. This man got jail time and fined.

If you believe freedom still rings in America, try to do anything without having to purchase a license or permit.

 ~ What happens to a government that provides for its citizens? Ask Puerto Rico with a $72 billion debt, but that includes free electricity. Who do they want to pay it now that they can't? Their lenders, at least half of it. Future foreclosures on government property? "Imagine how much it costs to have an ice-skating rink in the tropics."

 ~ I was told I really needed to see the movie “Straight Outta Compton”. I must admit, I couldn’t take my eyes off this flick. The most upsetting part of the movie wasn’t the rap music, it was the portrayal of LEOs as terrorists.

 ~ WHO says Zika virus is a global health emergency. That should be worth at least a couple of hundred million in funding, right? This virus is old news. Unless the science to cure it becomes profitable, government funding may be the only viable alternative.

~ One problem with government interference of free enterprise is the outcome of a law that forces corporations to make profits for their shareholders. This has encouraged companies to overcharge for exclusive products like certain medications, as well as fire employees and hire less expensive ones, all for the sake of its shareholders. Did I forget to mention executive bonuses based on profit margins?

Are today's politicians
pied pipers in disguise?

This is why Trump won't win. They can't let him.

 ~ In the “I call BS” section, do you remember what Al Gore said 10 years ago? “the world had until 27th January 2016 to end its addiction to fossil fuels or the it would come to an end.Fox Nation. (I am not a Fox fan!)

This prophetic statement to the world not only made Gore a multimillionaire as a climate change advocate, but secured him the Nobel Prize. The cost to address climate change worldwide is estimated at half a trillion dollars, which would be sliced up for all the right people and their companies.

I do not deny climate change. I believe the earth’s climate has continually changed since it’s creation.  Liars, thieves, profit and greed will never solve the problem, but they will create more problems that need funding. This looks like another vehicle for the redistribution of America’s wealth.

Government has used the Patriot Act and the Affordable Health Care Act to infringe on our freedom, by directly bypassing and contradicting our constitution, the one document created to protect American citizens. Our constitution is an obstacle they must work around and go around to gain control, and they're succeeding at selling their lies solutions to the masses.

When the wolves can convince the sheep that they just want to protect and care for them, the wolves will be well fed and the pack will grow and prosper. The sheep... not so much.

 ~ Will someone please explain to me why this country allows 1 million people immigrate here legally each year when we have 15-40 million people unemployed, underemployed or not in the workforce? Are they looking for more people willing to work for minimum wage?

With all the talk of sustainability, you would think our government would be concerned about rapid overpopulation and its effects on our entire infrastructure of health care, labor force, education and homeland security. Are they replacing the middle class to create a lower class, more dependent on government resources?

Sunday's Sermon

God's message to His chosen people
Charges against an unfaithful nation...
I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.’ 
But you have cultivated wickedness and harvested a thriving crop of sins. You have eaten the fruit of lies — trusting in your military might, believing that great armies could make your nation safe. Now the terrors of war will rise among your people."

Partnership with government
protection provided

 ~ Prepare to be destroyed if you choose to blow the whistle on a well-funded bureaucracy’s illegal activities. That is exactly what is happening to the people who made the video showing Planned Parenthood selling body parts.

If you do anything that jeopardizes half a billion in government funding to any institution, prepare for them to use those resources to obliterate you. $500 million a year can buy influence a lot of judges, politicians and media sources. It makes no difference if you’re right, they have the money to be declared innocent and you guilty.

 ~ Proof that profit supersedes lives? A 4 star movie I watched recently, Concussion, about the pathologist who discovered a mental condition of healthy, retired NFL football players. Will Smith played the part brilliantly, but IMO, not an Oscar performance. I guess that means I’m racist.

There is a pattern here that needs to be recognized and addressed. Our government is complicit and supportive of these organizations until wrongdoing is exposed. This is selective law enforcement, which should be considered organized crime.

 ~ “Let me be clear, it is the actions and choices of the armed occupiers that have led us to where we are today.” special agent Greg Bretzing, F.B.I. after LEO’s killed 1 and arrested 7 Oregon activists.

Let me be clear, it was the actions and choices of the federal government that caused these ranchers to go to this extreme to get their message heard. If the government was trying to run you off so they could buy your property, you would be up there with them. Remember, silence is consent.

 ~ I am a big fan of Megyn Kelly. I think Trump was wrong for his namecalling, and still do. However, I believe he is better off staying away from her since she knows which questions really upset him. At least we know this candidate isn't influenced by media pressure.

Anyway, the news media has become an ugly stain on the political process, promoting their seperate agenda - ratings and reviews. They now prefer making the news instead of accurately reporting it.

 ~ For those of you who get sick and don't get over it very quickly, I choose to megadose (5 times a day) vitamin C for 3-5 days. If it's not gone by then, I go to the doctor. B complex will help with miserable side effects.

Solving Society's Problems Daily
All Over The World

 ~ In the WTF section, here’s an article that infers Michigan State’s government would have acted sooner in the Flint water poisoning if more rich, white people were effected.

I don’t believe race had anything to do with it, but a wealthy community would have had the resources and connections to move things along much faster. Victimizing the poor is nothing new on planet earth.

Speaking of the poor, victimization and government, this article describes just such a community in Canada, mostly surviving on government benefits, which is not providing a successful solution.

"We are watching all this with alarm. It is clear that the government lacks the necessary resources to give us a normal life." SERGEI TITOV, a music teacher in Krasnodar, Russia, on looming government cutbacks because of plunging oil prices. What a sad state of affairs.

When will people wake up to the truth, as demonstrated above? The government, any government, is incapable of providing the necessary resources for a successful, worthwhile life or providing a completely safe environment. 

If we don't start helping each other again, as neighbors used to do, we will all suffer greatly.   At some time in our life, we will need help; karma will come into play. Government may provide resources and benefits like food, clothing and shelter, but they can’t make life meaningful.

 ~ I find it quite entertaining that Michael Bloomberg is considering a run for President. Can you imagine the fear his political opponents could create reminding us that he made the “big gulp” illegal in New York. Political death – force an overweight population on a diet.

 ~ The NY Times asked their readers to tell them 3 things they like to do when snowed in for days. Some of those New Yorkers provided some really great ideas, and funny comments:
“I like to have bottled coffee drinks on hand. After losing my power for more than a week in 2008, I realize that they are a lifesaver (and not necessarily my own life).”
“…and something trashy to watch like the minor films of Joan Crawford because I can be fairly sure the weather will prevent anyone from coming in and catching me.”

Sunday's Sermon

"Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation", Barak Obama

“This is what God says: Why do you disobey the Lord’s commands and keep yourselves from prospering? You have abandoned the Lord, and now he has abandoned you!”
If God hasn't changed and we continue down this path, famine, disease and war is what we have to look forward to. 

Looking at the last 3,000 years, you will recognize this pattern has been repeated many times. Great wealth and military did not save any culture whose transgressions became an abomination to God.

Violence is just one side effect of Godlessness, no matter what religion or government may justify it. Disease is another. 

Sit, watch, do nothing - silence is consent - expect consequences.

New and improved idiocy

Go full screen, sit close and hang on...

Thursday, January 21, 2016

I have an idea
Let's give everyone Oscars!

 ~ If you believe Americans are rational and reasonable people, then tell me how many failed marriages or similar relationships a person should go through before considering the problem might be found in a mirror? We have an enormous capacity for denial, justification and rationalization. Being at fault is seldom an option.

 ~ Speaking of rational and reasonable, what’s up with the outrage over the Oscars not nominating a black person for the second year in a row? Is someone implying that performance is not as important as awarding diversity?

The great irony - these people are just not that important, they’re only actors - entertainers.

Who is the real hero? Dr. Ben Carson, a brilliant neurosurgeon or Cuba Gooding, Jr, who played him in the movie, Gifted Hands? Although Dr. Carson doesn’t demand the respect Spike Lee requires, he receives it for his contribution to humankind. Hey Spike, who you backing for President?

 ~ It looks like I need to start a Gofundme account since I was recently victimized by not winning the Powerball lottery. It could take me a lifetime to recover from such a devastating disaster. Do you think I can find an attorney who could make a successful case for such a catastrophic loss?

 ~ If you can read this Fox News article objectively and not acknowledge the possibility that the US is supporting war and terrorism in the Middle East, you might be considered na├»ve. For many, facts don’t matter.

 ~ So far, the federal government has spent over $400,000 sending text messages to Mexican-American men encouraging them to exercise. This is wrong on so many levels. Isn't this considered racial profiling?

EPA – Enforce Propaganda Agenda
– Endorsement for Poison Allowance
– Extort Profitable Atrocities

 ~ If you think our government will protect you and your family, you may want to read about the poisoned drinking water in Flint Michigan. Industry partnering with government equals legalized industrial waste.

Or this very sickening article claiming certain government agencies do “not have the capacity to protect children”, even though it’s their job.

Viable solutions will not come by throwing money at the problem but only after addressing incompetence, irresponsibility, unaccountability, corruption and unrealistic expectations. Can you imagine a judge placing a government bureaucracy in receivership?

And if you're the government, how do you change public perception? Presently, the EPA illegally spreads and promotes propaganda, according to the US Government Accountability Office.

If this weren't the US government, it would come under the RICO Act and people would go to jail for conspiracy.

~ In the ‘I call bullshit’ section, regarding the 3 Americans missing in Iraq, State Department spokesperson John Kirby was quoted to say, “The safety and security of American citizens overseas is our highest priority.”‎ Yea, tell that to the families of those killed in Bengazi.

~ On MLK Day, the New York Post declares that race relations in the USA are one of President Obama’s greatest failures. Would someone make a good argument disputing this view? I care about knowing alternate realities.
How embarrassing that Obama’s most memorable act of presidential leadership on race may end up being inviting a black professor and a white cop to the White House for his 2009 “beer summit.”’
The CDC has issued an advisory for pregnant women to “postpone traveling to more than a dozen Latin American or Caribbean countries” due to a mosquito spread virus in infants born with brain damage. This includes Brazil, host to the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Future's so bright, gotta wear shades

 ~ In the true or false section, this article states,that Iran had dismantled large sections of its nuclear program,” as confirmed by UN inspectors. My first thought...How much of the $150 billion did Iran pay the inspectors for this report?

Years from now, they’re gonna ask us, ‘Where were you when they took over the planet?’ and we’re gonna say, ‘we just stood by and watched’.“ prophecy from - Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon

 ~ After watching this 3 year old video that was just released, I have a few questions. If our government has nothing to hide, why do they continue to fight the release of videos showing police killing people? If you claim no wrongdoing, you should want the public to see the recordings.

If cameras can justify an officer’s actions, they should be allowed to condemn them as well. There may come a day that Americans will demand LEOs not to possess deadly weapons. Sadly, this would force them to think about alternate methods to detain people, which should already be their first, second and third choices.

The real problem is, first and foremost, the public does not believe LEOs are justified when shooting an unarmed suspect, even when fleeing the scene. ‘Fearing for your life’ is a difficult concept when suspect is running away from you. Respect my authority or receive the death sentence, immediately. A civilian wouldn’t get a pass in similar circumstances.

 ~ The New York Times attributes rising college tuition on the “constant expansion of university administration”. Welcome to liberal bureaucracy, where the higher the position, the less work required. What good is status and position if you don't have a large staff and entourage to go with it?

 ~ If the economy is so great, why is Walmart closing 269 stores? Maybe their demographics didn’t include the Amazon factor, which, if true, was a very expensive error.

 ~ Black people in the motion picture business are once again upset over the lack of diversity with the Oscar nominees this year. Reality - A. Race does not equal excellence. B. Race does not make one important. C. Race does not create entitlement, at least outside government and large corporations. D. In Hollywood, green matters more than black.

Sunday's Sermon

“As surely as my new heavens and earth will remain, so will you always be my people, with a name that will never disappear,” says the Lord. 
“All humanity will come to worship me from week to week and from month to month. And as they go out, they will see the dead bodies of those who have rebelled against me. 
For the worms that devour them will never die, and the fire that burns them will never go out. All who pass by will view them with utter horror.”

Have you found the missing link?
The one that makes things add up.

 ~ In his SOTU speech, the President makes a plea to "fix our politics". The idea is noble, his implementation is treasonous - executive orders, czars, circumvent the constitution and install a dictatorship. It took us 200 years to break our political process, how else would he "fix" American politics with the year he has left?

 ~ ISIS has a new way to motivate their fighters to win battles. They just take the fighters involved in losing battles and set them on fire. Not a great recruiting technique.

 ~ Talk about a good recruiting video, our "weak" troops being captured by Iranians is the most embarrassing escapade our military has been party to in quite a while.  This couldn’t have been planned better. What are the odds of both boats having navigation issues at the same time, especially when a Kracker Jacks compass would have worked.

 ~ One problem with socialized medicine, something the USA will be forced into because of unaffordability, is that when doctors strike, as is the case in England, everyone in the country is at risk. Could this be deemed “Civilized Terrorism”?

Western medicine has been corrupted by corporatism and excessive profiteering, even by non-profit institutions. Add politicians into the mix and the level of corruption escalates exponentially. Sadly, it is human beings who suffer the consequences.

 ~ Am I alone in finding little comforting knowing the United Nations is helping the US screen central American migrants? Many Democratic leaders are furious that the Obama administration is deporting those who failed to win asylum, which would be future constituents.

 ~ It is comforting to know our court system still upholds the 1st Amendment, free speech. Appeals court overturned the conviction of a veteran wearing medals he didn’t earn, a violation of the Stolen Valor Act. It is no longer a crime to impersonate a military hero, aka fraud. I guess this had to happen since politicians have been impersonating military heros for decades.

 ~ What type of justice would you recommend for the illegal alien with HIV who continually raped a minor for 5 years without telling her he had AIDs. Which do you consider most horrendous? rape, rape of a minor, habitual rape of a minor, HIV rapist or HIV endangerment.

 ~So, if you were an astronomer, why would you want to build a 40’ telescope? This article gives one of the best justifications for such an expenditure, “to find the next earth”; which still seems an impossible undertaking.

 ~ In the WTF section this week, can you imagine an America where a Harvard education is free? That's what several candidates for the Harvard Board of Overseers are proposing, especially with almost $40 billion in their endowment fund. Would this devalue a Harvard degree?

Freaking brutal

Stupidity can have dire consequences!
WARNING: Graphic images, including dead people.
