It is hard to find the truth in politics. Everyone has an agenda. Unfortunately when the truth comes out, it is not tolerated. Like actors, everyone plays a role reciting their lines. This is the reason some people do not like to talk about politics.
Other people, some love the lies. They love to talk politics. I have listened to these people. They are genetically incapable of telling the truth. When everything is a lie, the truth is not tolerated.
I was talking with a group of students about Covid. They definitely thought that it was a government plot. I offered my opinion that Covid was designed by the government to kill old people so the government would not have to pay pensions and social security. They thought I was spot on.
Whenever I check CNN they are still talking about Trump. I have to think that when it comes to lies, the truth can not be tolerated. CNN cannot tolerate Trump. I never paid attention to the Trump tweets. I thought they were irrelevant. Yet more than anything else, they were not tolerated.
Let’s just say they students and I were right. Covid was designed by the government(s) to kill old people. The idea is not unprecedented. In ancient Rome it was a disgrace to be old. It was better to die at your peak. Ancient Rome was quite violent.
President Trump kind of messed up the plan with Operation Warp Speed. Sure there were simple ways to beat Covid, they were made illegal and unavailable. They probably did not believe Trump would actually be successful with a vaccine. He saved the old people.
My wife says I would have survived Covid. My cousin and others did not. I believe Covid was manufactured. I believe Covid was used to kill people. It is hard for me to believe that the government is my friend. Locally they are just a bunch of extortionists.
There are plenty of unknowns out there. Trump is one of them. Yet he might of saved my life.
I still hear people defend President Biden, yet it is a half-hearted defense at best. I have not heard a single person say what a great person Kamala Harris is. The party is in trouble. Get rid of Joe and you have Kamala. Get rid of Kamala and you have President Pelosi. Think that would work?
Sure there would be people that would rejoice in the first female presidency. That would be OK. There is nothing wrong with being first. Yet at the end of the day policy matters.
Recently I have been bewildered by a plethora of commercials on the local TV station when I watch the morning news extolling the virtues of our Senator Maggie Hassan. It is not an election year, yet there are even more commercials for Maggie then there were during the election. She is portrayed in a very Republican manner with farmers, working people and veterans. If you go way back in this blog you may find I have written about her once or twice.
In the evening I watch a bit of national cable news. More commercials for Maggie. Surprising that they would pay for national coverage for local non election support. My thought that the local spots were just a kind of reminder to the local station “remember who pays your salaries” so when election time roll around they would know who their friends are. But the national coverage, a bit of a mystery. Occasionally I watch a bit of “alternative” news as a counter balance. Hard core Republican support news you might say. Of course I was stunned to see another Maggie Hassan commercial. I think no amount of advertising revenue would change their political bias.
Perplexed I began to wonder if Maggie was going to start selling pillows. Sometimes I check out Instagram, there was Maggie. Facebook too! I have to imagine that the outlays are massive. There is some serious funding behind Maggie.
Normally I watch things like the apolitical Science Channel. Yup there’s Maggie. This is much bigger than some local stage. I figure the ambition must be presidential. Not sure how it will all play out. Yet you heard it hear first.
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.
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.
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.
