Reincarnation and Climate Change

China recently made it clear that they needed to approve of any person that was reincarnated as the next Dalai Lama.  Now, we all know that except in the case of Jesus Christ, reincarnation has never been proven to occur.  Even he was not reincarnated, he was resurrected.  The Romans 2000 years ago also tried to deny the return of Christ. The point here, whether its the  Chinese government or the Romans two millennia ago, is that there is no limit on the power governments want to assume.  The authority they want, the control they crave does not even have to exist for them to assume it belongs to them

So we get to the United States. Here the Obama administration has debated suing oil companies for being climate change deniers.   They want to control what people think through the force of law.  Even though there are lots of scientists on both sides of this issue, its an issue that hampers their efforts at controlling who uses oil and how much oil they use.   It is the height of arrogance and the antithesis of a representative republic (democracy).

Recently, I fixed our sump pump.  This small device controls whether or not our basement floods.  It moves water and sludge from the crawl space to the outside.  It controls whether our foundation remains solid or whether it erodes destroying our house.  Watching our government  it is clear that the mechanism for protecting the foundation of our democracy has failed.  The sump pump of Congress and the courts whose job it is to keep the sludge out of our system have failed.  Like the sump pump at home, they need an overhaul.

Spying on You

The FBI has revised its own rules about how it will use NSA data.  If you have ever had a conversation by phone or email with someone outside our country they can now review your emails, phone calls, and web traffic.   The FBI pretty much admits they were doing this anyhow, but now they claim legal authority to do so.  Basically, if you bought a kids toy in China they can look at all your correspondence.  

Why was there spying on conservatives and the illegal use of the IRS? The fact that both parties condone this intrusion is appalling.  That more than any other reason is a reason to elect a conservative that upholds the letter of the constitution.   I think Trump would like to use this power.  We are 1970’s Soviet Union or 2016’s China.  What you say is monitored.  What you write is monitored and bad things happen to people that make waves against the established money and special interest fed order.

Look around you.  WELCOME TO THE GULAG comrade!!!

 

The Imperial Exploitation of America

Thus far in the past year IT workers at Disney, and Southern California Edison have had to train their foreign worker replacements.   Not only have they lost their IT jobs, but they also have had to endure the humiliation of training their replacements.  Now this same thing is happening at Abbott Labs.  180 more American workers are having their jobs stolen by foreign workers willing to work for less than market value.

So, who is to blame.  All of the Senators and Congressmen that take money from lobbyists and special interests are to blame.  These are not American citizens and have no right to jobs where there are qualified Americans.  I would urge Congress to shut down the H1B program until all the workers who want to work in America have jobs. That also means shutting down the EB5 program that is nothing less than selling American jobs in exchange for foreign capital.

Between illegal immigration and the H1B program it is not rocket science to figure out why wages are depressed.  These companies and our government are not interested in American success, they are only interested in their own pockets.  The environment that lets them rape Americans needs to change.  Our own companies and government are selling us off piecemeal.  Its imperialism in reverse.  Obama’s favorite thing, the destroying of America.

(Disney is family friendly, except for those they fired.  Those families can’t afford Disney tickets because Disney destroyed them in the pursuit of profit.  Perhaps people should not go there.)

 

 

Car Dealerships and Politics

Today I visited a well known local car dealership.  I admit I was lured by a promotion where it appeared I had won $1,000.  I knew that to be unlikely, but could not figure how I would not win from flyer.  I could not figure out how it was a scam.   I will admit it also got me thinking about buying a new car.  When I arrived and showed the sales guy the flyer he brought out a poster that showed how the wording on the flyer worked.  Yes, it was a scam.

I asked him how he felt about doing that to people and he said , “Well, it is a car dealership.”  On my end I was thinking,  ” There is no way I would ever buy a car from these people.”  It is more than the fact that they are dishonest, they are not only dishonest but completely unashamed of their dishonesty, even proud of it.  It is like you should expect them to be dishonest, and they expect you will buy a car from them even if they lie, mislead, and scam you.  Anyone that buys a car from these people can expect  pain and extra expense.

When Trump says that he no longer thinks highly of Cruz because Cruz’s poll numbers are better or where Rubio paints his competition by changing the facts, both politicians are doing the same thing as the car salesperson.  When Hillary ducts questions about Benghazi, or her email it is no different.  All of them would say, “Well it is politics.” 

If we vote for any of them it will, just like buying that car, cost us more and lead to pain and strife.  For both groups I have the same advice,  its my money and my life you want to abuse with your deceit.  It is not just politics or a dealership, it is my life and I am tired of you getting away with thinking it is OK to be a slime.  It is not OK.  It hurts me personally, and it hurts our country.  We, the citizens should expect more.  If you lie, cheat or steal, or even promise that which you have no intention of providing, you should be held accountable.  You should be, arrested, exiled, banned from society.  It is time for there to be a higher standard in American life.  Lets start with the car dealerships and finish with Congress and the White house.

 

 

Theories – Creation vs Evolution

Why is referencing the theory of evolution scientifically ok and referencing the theory of intelligent design considered a crime. If you see an awesome sun rise is your first thought “Hey that took umpteen million years to get here, or just ‘Wow’?”

Save Our Repulic stop the RNC

I am not a fan of Donald Trump and did not vote for him, however, I am even less of a fan of those such as Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio that are part of a plan by big donors to steal the election from its legitimate winner.  They are scared they will lose their power or have to pay legitimate wages to real American workers or that the Washington gravy train will get stranded in the station.

At this stage Rubio and Kasich are only in the race to try to steal the election at the convention.   They are part of a plan to create a brokered convention.  Two legitimate candidates are still in the race, Cruz and Trump.  If the Republican donor base succeeds in selecting a candidate that was not duly elected by the voters, then our democracy is dead.

Already with stagnant wages, changes in tax law under Obama, and Obamacare the average American’s life is immeasurably less secure and comfortable than it was.  The same people that are trying to destroy Trump are the same ones responsible for making our lives worse.   It is time to take our country back from big business and from those that continue to enrich themselves at everyone else’s expense.
