government


I read this article and had to note how well the author analyzed the subject at hand.  I had a moment discussion with an individual at church on Sunday.  This individual works on political campaigns and was in one himself and spoke at the service.  One subject mentioned was freedom.  I told him afterwards that to me, there has to be responsibility.  The two are linked, and once one reduces responsibility, freedom is lost as well.  Freedom without responsibility is license.

Yesterday, mominbox’s phone rang.  I handed the unit to her and heard a couple of words seemingly like request for money.  Mominbox was trying to protest that she didn’t give donations on the phone and I put out my hand towards the phone.  Mominbox noted the gesture and said that the caller was to speak with me.  (Ahem…) Good evening, how can I help?  The female voice on the other end started reading the script of how the Republican National Committee was a big supporter of President Trump and they were wanting $100 donation to help with their efforts of outreach.  I reached into my hat and pulled out “abortion”.  “Umm, why should I send money to a group who takes my money and supports abortion?”  The caller tried to say there was a difference between the legislative efforts and their need to get my money to encourage younger voters to vote Republican.  I persisted.   You want me to support a group who has taken my money and given it to an agency known to murder babies and sell their body parts against the law.  The caller tried to finish reading her script in the middle of which I posited that this phone number was to be placed on the “do not call” list.  I got no assurance that would be done, but was smiling when the phone clicked.

Please join me.  Other issues I could have used would be immigration, TSA, Obammacare, horrific rules applied to military, lack of a budget, etc.  In other words, the field is wide open.

Building a house the old fashioned way.

I wish I could argue that this guy is wrong.

This is one for the strong stomachs and a bit of fuel to spur anger towards the congress critters who keep removing our money and giving to this monster.

I wish the bulk of the judiciary behaved in this fashion.  We should have more advocates for criminals silenced when they behave stupidly.  For those who want to argue that he was a defense attorney and the criminal needed defense, let me ask the following – wasn’t the trial the location where the truth was to be presented and justice administered accordingly?  It never was to be a location for the most practiced lawyers to have felons escape justice.  That desire for truth is now missing.

I used that term instead of “schooling” because that is the actual purpose.  Spend a bit of time with “An Underground History of American Education” and you will agree.  What the kids are being taught is to not think.  There are appropriate ways to respond and here they are….  Well, I remember in one class hearing that education was training an outcome.  I thought that sounded odd at the time, and now have a good understanding what was being propagated.  Kids are being training to respond in a known fashion, not being taught to think and produce an appropriate response.  There is a difference.  If there wasn’t, “political correctness” would not exist.  I have written it before, but it bears repeating here that the origin of political correctness is Marxism where language would be manipulated and words expunged such that the resulting individuals would have their very thoughts “politically correct.”  How did I get back on this subject?  I found an article which followed the thought from the training to the voting to the following.  That descriptor isn’t used, but you can see the progression as you read.

How do you deal with an invasion?  This is how.  It’s time we call it by the appropriate term.

I saw this article and believe the end point made is the actual goal of the left.  We started a Christian nation and every vestige of that heritage has been under attack.  After all, if there are any rules conforming to what God intended, that’s anathema to these people.  How about we label this what it actually is, a religious war.  We are fighting for our beliefs and the left are fighting to destroy us.  Let me remind you that in one of the early renditions of obammacare, there was to be a separate defined dollar removed from every person for specific support of abortion.  The reason to include this was to tarnish the beliefs of Christians and any other who believed in the sanctity of life.

Dear sir: Thank you for your reply.  There is an absence in it I noted.  No where did I detect any desire to remove government control on healthcare.  That is what I am asking.  The origin of health care insurance was government price controls on labor and the market looked to find another way to attract and reward good labor.  That is the origin of insurance in healthcare.  Government interference was the impetus.  More or different government interference won’t fix it.  Better programs aren’t the answer.  Freedom combined with responsibility is.  Reign in the trial lawyers and make people responsible for their own health care decisions.  When people have to pay for what they get, the market changes.  People receiving something paid for by someone else is socialism and a detriment to decent society.  This includes welfare, but that is a topic for another letter.

At this point, I reiterate the topic of my original letter.  I am seeking the removal of obammacare, not it’s replacement.  I am asking for government out of healthcare, not simply changed strings on we marionettes.  I know it’s an uphill battle as it requires government to actually give up power to the people and government is loathe to do so.  I also note that those elected officials know we the people desire removal of obammacare as there were several votes last year – during the election – with that as the topic.  Interesting that now we have a president who will sign such a bill and none has been presented.  Those actions are screaming louder than anything I could ever write. The Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites who present bills in an election year in accord with the desires of the voters who are subsequently ignored after the election.  Again: government out of healthcare.  Period.
