Life and Death

I have seen a commercial on TV that says the governor of my state has signed a law prohibiting abortion. My first thought was why did I not see this on the news. Could be fake news.

If the government can decide to get rid of people because of their age, then why can’t people? People are going to get abortions, might as well keep it safe and legal. I will say the same thing about marijuana. Keep it safe and legal and drive the crime out.

When it comes right down to it I will say the same thing about immigration, keep it safe and legal, and drive the crime out.

Saw on the news today that people are dying trying to get into the country. Yet they are still dying to get out of the aforementioned countries.

Makes me wonder where I might want to go.

Empty Shelves

I write about personal observations. Not that I go shopping much, my wife does most of the shopping, yet she does drag me along occasionally. So for the first time in my life I have been seeing empty shelves. Full shelves have always been a hallmark of America’s prosperity. Even during the hight of the pandemic, with the exception of toilet paper, the shelves were full. The news says that in the coming months the shelves will be even less full.

When you are on top you have nowhere to go but down. I have read that great civilizations only last 300 years. If so it is our time to fail. The question is how far down will we go. If we end up like Europe it will not be to bad. I do hear a lot of people talk about how great Cuba is. In my view that is pretty bad. In Cuba rich people drive 50 year old cars because there is nothing better. In this country rich people drive 50 year old cars because they can. If the rich in this country want to get somewhere fast, they take a jet. They can’t do that in Cuba.

It wasn’t that long ago the media praised Venezuela and its progressive politics. Last year inflation there was over 2,300%. That is just the beginning of reasons not to be there. The Venezuelan exodus is one of the largest in the world. Hope we don’t go that way.

So how low will we go? I don’t know.

Comply or Die

I read something interesting the other day. Supposedly it came out of the Hunter Biden laptop. It was a proposal by Hunter Biden to Muammar Gaddafi to represent the Libyan Government within the Obama administration via access provided by Joe Biden. The cost would be only two million a year plus unspecified expenses. The Colonel turned down the proposal.

I may be jumping to conclusions, but, when you run a shakedown or extortion racket. There is a price to be paid for noncompliance. I had always thought that the elimination of Colonel Gaddafi was somewhat unexplained. This story, as strange as it may be makes sense.

As far as the administration at the time was concerned, it would be stupid not to pay a couple million bucks for quality representation. In fact it would be a bargain. Everyone knows that sometimes it is just the cost of doing business. It is the way things work.

For whatever reason, Gaddafi did not want to pay. Maybe Muammar Gaddafi had talked to Donald J Trump about the quality of services. That idea is not that outlandish.

When Colonel Gaddafi visited the U. S. to speak at the United Nations, he pitched his elaborate tent on the grounds of Donald Trump’s New York estate. So Gaddafi and Trump may have been friends.

So if Donald J Trump advised Colonel Muammar Gaddafi not to pay the Biden family for political access, it was fatal advice.

For a Democrat administration, it is very very easy to say that anyone that takes the Advice of Donald Trump is stupid. Stupid people turn down a reasonable price for political access. Simply, in their mind stupid people deserve to die. It is how the system is preserved.

Sure there are gaps in this story, yet it is logical, and provides explanation for what has been unexplained.
