Is this where all of this leads?

Could it be this freaking simple? I am referring to the recent outing of males as sexual deviants.

The political landscape has long been dominated by males, as has the business and banking world. They still have a hard time coming to grips with the fact that their candidate for president lost. They most likely and probably never will come to grips with that fact. They have blamed everything under the sun for her loss but her. They have even claimed that she lost because males were not willing or ready to vote for a woman for president.

The allegations made against males and their sexual misconduct towards women is coming at a dizzying pace, seems like it will never stop. And it wont until all males are portrayed as sexual deviants. Sexual deviants who cant be trusted in the company of a woman. A sexual deviant who caint(can not and aint gonna)control himself. There have even been allegations leveled a males for attempting or attempting to have their way with underage(minor)boys and/or girls.

Are they trying to remake the political landscape of this Republic? Absolutely. But more than that they intend to remake the entire landscape of this Republic. The goal, perhaps is to remove all males from positions of power or authority based on the actions of a few.

Thus far the only allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior that has been exposed has been against males. To date and to the best of my recollection no females have been accused of such “indiscretions”. This is most likely due to the double standards when it comes to males and females.

Allow me to explain. When a male teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, whether the student female or male, there is outcry to lock him up and throw away the key. But if a female teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, especially if the student is a male, some say “where was she when I was in school”. So therefore I don’t expect any males will come out under the hashtag me too. Males exploits are put out for the world to see, while the females exploits remain virtually invisible.

There are some in both sexes, male and female, that will take advantage of their position or power for their own gains, whether it be for sexual(gratification)or financial(personal profit)reasons.

Now let me say this, there are males and females in society that are more than willing to be used, if their being used will get them to where they want to be. Those willing to be used are not victims.

By all means those that are victims should expose those that use others, whether male or female. Having power and/or authority don’t give anyone, male or female, the right to whatever or whoever they see or can get their hands on. Keep your hands to yourself and keep a civil tongue in your head.

In this post I have used the word “they” a lot. Now let me say who “they” are. They are the Social Justice Warriors from the Department of Fairness and Equality.

I have also used the words male and female. That is because that was the way we as mankind were created by God, man and woman.

This is what all of this boils down to, the Social Justice Warriors want a woman to be president. No matter the cost. No matter if she is qualified. No matter her morals or the apparent lack of her morals. I mean after all, women can be trusted, right? The only qualification she must possess is to not be a man and social justice would have prevailed, in their view.

I cant help but wonder if that woman were elected president would all of these allegations come about? Are the allegations a result of her loss? We will never know, because thankfully she was not elected. I suspect though that silence would have prevailed, if she had won the election.

They judge themselves

Now what are they going to do? A sitting democrat Senator has had his behavior exposed, inappropriate to say the least. A sitting democrat Senator taking advantage of a female, at the time, co-worker. I would venture to say that this so-called comedian at that time, now a sitting democrat Senator was the first name on the marquis, the head-liner. If he was the senior member of the cast, he may have assumed what he did was his “right”. I dont know much about this former so-called comedian, I dont know if he a had a wife at the time or not. If he did, we had a term for this type of individual while I was in the Army. We called these types of individuals “Geographical Bachelors”, meaning that if he and his wife were in different zip codes he was a bachelor. Some people took that same stance if they and their spouse were in different area codes, sometimes in different buildings, or rooms within the same building. The clown had the attitude that all that was in his sight and everything within his grasp was his for the taking, he may still have the same attitude.

One would think that with all of the “righteous indignation” the establishment politicians have expressed over the allegations against the republican nominee in the Alabama senate race, demanding that he step aside they would take the same approach with this “clown”. But no, they will take a different approach. They do protect their own. They are going to refer the Senator to the Ethics Committee. They, other senators will decide if the clown’s behavior was ethical or not, he apparently cant. If he is found unethical in this they will name his punishment. Patrick Henry was right about this too. There really is no accountability in congress.

Speaking of Ethics Committees, how many of you need a committee to tell you if you have acted ethically or not? Most of us know the difference between ethical and unethical conduct without the benefit of a committee. Apparently this clown thought his behavior was acceptable.

Seems to me this clown was loud while condemning the actions of a Hollywood mogul. Bit dogs do holler first, and the loudest.

Now we have this, a congresswoman has come out under the hashtag me too. What she said in her testimony was to say the least startling. I believe she referred to congress as a “breeding ground” of sexual misconduct. I would say that they have the morals of an alley cat, but I would not want to condemn alley cats.

This kind of behavior did not just start yesterday. As a side note saying I am sorry or apologizing does not make it right. Using your position to make advances to take advantage of another is just bad manners, there is no excuse for bad manners. Now let me address your morals for just a minute, your morals are low. Just how low you ask? Your morals are lower than whale feces, and whale feces is on the bottom of the ocean.

So is this a failure of the individual to control him/her self or of congressional leadership? Well the answer is both, but it is the individuals responsibility to control him/her self. The reason I said both is because the current leaders were not always leaders they were at one time followers. But the leaders of today had to have seen what was going on then. Some of the members of congress have been around for years and years, some for decades.

So as a Senator says, “this is the first shoe to drop, more shoes will drop”. This I fear is going to grow and grow, the clown is not the only one, just the first one to be named.

So what is the answer? We the voters need to clean house. Repeal the 17th Amendment, let the States once again send their Senators.

I wonder if….

It would seem that nearly all of the congress critters and almost all of the talking-heads have already convicted Judge Roy Moore from the Great State of Alabama of sexual improprieties. Not only have they already convicted him they demand that he step aside in the Senate race. One of the enlightened clowns presently holding a seat in the senate has already said that “He has no place in the Senate”. At least one has said that Judge Moore must prove his innocence. Judge Moore has already been convicted in the court of opinion. Judge Moore has not, I repeat has not, been convicted in a court of law. They have even began a campaign to find a write-in candidate in the senate race. One would expect this from the other party. Judge Moore won the republican primary in Alabama and the afore-mentioned statements are coming from republicans. It seems to me that the republicans will torpedo their own, wanting and willing to lose the election and the seat. Or is it just they did not get the candidate they wanted? Seems to me the republicans are trying to put a monkey wrench into the works.

It has even been said by some Judge Moore should step aside and let the party select a nominee. They actually think the party machine is smarter than the voters who supported Judge Moore. Seems to me not all that long ago they wanted then candidate Trump, then nominee and now President Trump to step aside because of allegations of improprieties that were later proven false. Then as now they did not get the candidate they wanted.

Judge Moore as well as any other person accused of a crime should be and is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a Court of Law. A matter of Fact not a matter of Opinion. This still is America is it not? Since when is it the defendants responsibility to prove his innocence?

So I wonder if allegations of improprieties(taking liberties)were leveled at a sitting member of Congress, would they step aside? Would they succumb to opinion? I doubt they would. But the republicans in Congress are guilty of taking liberties, they have abused the voters that supported them. Constituent abuse. They have lied to the voters. Come on, confess your improprieties and step aside.

I question the timing of these allegations. They did not surface during the primaries. Why now?

You were willing to have a democrat president just not to have a President Trump. Anybody but Trump you said. You are willing to have a democrat senator just not to have a Senator Moore. Anybody but Moore you are saying.

Choose wisely Alabama.

You the republicans are the Jacobins of today. The ends justify the means.

Some do, some dont

Some get it, some dont and probably never will.

The latest mass killing(murdering)occurred in a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. This was not the only shooting(murdering)that has occurred in a Christian House of Worship. Before the one in Texas there was one in Tennessee. Before the one in Tennessee there was one in South Carolina.

The one in Tennessee and the one in Texas have one thing in common. A concerned citizen brought the carnage to a halt. If I recall correctly the murdering at the Antioch Baptist Church was stopped by an Usher who wrestled the attacker to the ground. Again if I recall correctly the attacker(murderous savage)was shot in the leg. The murdering at the First Baptist Church was also brought to a halt by a concerned citizen. In this attack the concerned citizen exchanged fire with the attacker, as reported the attacker(again a murderous savage)was shot during the exchange. In the one in South Carolina the attacker(and again a murderous savage)was able to flee the scene, only to be captured a short time later. The murderous savage in Texas was not only shot, but when he attempted to flee was subsequently chased down by two townsfolk, including the one who had exchanged fire with and wounded the murderous savage.

This needs to be said and understood by all. In each of these instances the murderous savage knew he would face little if any resistance. They basically had the upper hand, the advantage if you will. They are brave when they have the advantage, not so much when they encounter resistance. None of the three murderous savages had planned on any meeting any real resistance.

I would like to point this out about society in this Republic today. The concerned citizen in Texas who grabbed his rifle and brought the savagery to an end is more the exception than the rule. Most in our society would have chosen not to get involved, if they did get involved it would have only been to the extent of grabbing their cellphone and making a video. This man chose to get involved, he grabbed his rifle(not a cellphone)and placing himself in great danger engaged the threat. He placed himself in great peril to defend the defenseless. To me that is the definition of a true Hero. This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit, heroic and decisive action in the face of great peril. The other man, the driver of the truck also chose to get involved. This man also demonstrated great courage during the chase, determined to not let the murderous savage escape. Both of these men are exemplary and courageous in deed and character.

Now lets move on to those who dont get it and probably never will. This would be the gun control crowd, actually it should be called the “cult of gun control”. I call it a cult because to them it is a religion, but it is a cult. It is a false religion based on a false premise. It is based on the premise that what they call “gun crime” can be eliminated by placing further restrictions on law-abiding citizens. Passing laws and even more laws have no effect on those that choose to ignore or break the laws. If the rights of the citizens are infringed the only effect that would have would to be to provide even more victims of those who use a gun to commit a crime. I call the gun control a cult for another reason, they have Profits, false Profits. They follow a Profit who calls for more gun control while at the same time they are surrounded by armed security. They have guns to protect them while they seek to disarm others. The false “religion” of gun control headed by a false Profit, that makes it a cult.

Now we have a republican Senator from Texas siding with and reaching out to the democrats on gun control. This is a democrat windfall. It sounds as simple as writing legislation to enforce and strengthen laws on the books, but it is not that simple. It will not stop with legislation to fix existing legislation, it will lead to “comprehensive reform”. Currently the Air Force is being blamed for the failure on its part in reporting the conviction of the murderous savage in Texas. To me it is just another example of the government being above the law. When the government makes a mistake they just say “oops”. What happens to the rest of us if we make a similar mistake?

Now let’s go to those that get it. Once again a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy with a gun. We have a sheriff here in Florida that has come out to say, “if you have a permit and a gun take your gun with you”. He gets it and so should you. I agree with what he has said.

You are your own “first line of defense”. Everyone who owns a gun should be proficient, range time and holster drills. I would like to say this, carrying a firearm comes with great responsibility. If you are not willing to accept that responsibility them for God’s sake do not carry. Let me point this out, the gun in your holster is not a “good luck charm”. Just because you have a concealed weapon and a permit is no guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen. Be proficient. If you want to carry a “good luck charm” get a rabbit’s foot, but then ask yourself what happen to the rest of the rabbit?

Now this is going to bring us to the subject of guns in Church. This is a subject that most congregations are unwilling to discuss. But it must be discussed. Before beginning with this I would like to point out this. We should be walking about this Republic everyday without a care in the world. We should be safe in our schools, offices, parks and everywhere we go, but things are different now.

There are many places that one would believe they were absolutely safe, but for today I will address only two. We should feel absolute safety in these two places, the sanctuary of the womb and the Sanctuary of the Church. Taking a little side road for just a minute. Let me go back to the “cult of gun control” for just a minute. The same people who favor gun control are the same people who favor abortion on demand. I find this to be more than ironic, they are perfectly willing to support abortion, which is not a Constitutional Right but oppose the private ownership of guns which is a Constitutional Right. Since 1973 it has been estimated that over 53 million babies have been murdered in the mother’s womb. The pro-choice “abortion cult” has their false Profits, the same as the “gun control cult”. The ones who push abortion have children and grand children. Those that support abortion only do so because their mothers chose life.

Now let’s go back to guns in the Church. This is going to cause angst in some Churches. I am of the opinion that every Church in this Republic have some sort of Church Protection Plan. I am also of the opinion that every male in the congregation carry his own personal firearm, that is, if he is trained, proficient and holds a permit if required and most importantly will to take on that responsibility. Some Pastors are going to be against guns in the Church. Some of the Congregation like is going to be opposed to guns in the Church. But I remind you of this you are your own and best first line of defense. As I have said before when a wolf comes it is best to have some wolf repellant.

There are those who claim that a handgun is not match for a rifle. Well that is true, but something is better than nothing. For a handgun to be effective against a rifle, the distance must be closed, either by the defender or the murderous savage. I am not for turning every Church in this Republic into a bristling fortress, but Churches like all “soft” targets must be “hardened”. We want people to come to Church and come to Jesus. We could lock our doors, but locks only keep honest people honest.

Above when I said “This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit heroic and decisive”, that was and is true but it exemplified more than just the American Spirit. He exemplified the Christian Spirit. Willing to lay down his life for a friend. The Christian American Spirit.

Since when….?

This is the first part of a series.

Since when did doing the right thing become based on diminished public interest? What I am referring to here is reports of the current AG saying that he would not pursue based on diminished public interest referring to the Clinton e-mails and all that was associated with them. It is not just the e-mails but all of the wrongdoing in the previous administration.

While it may be true that public interest has diminished somewhat. It does not mean that the public is no longer interested in the matters the AG made reference to. Nor does it mean the level of frustration has lessened at the apparent incompetence with the AG and the DOJ, in this administration or the last. What the diminished public interest means is that people have passed away patiently waiting for someone to come along who would do the right thing and pursue the corrupt in government even if it went or goes all the way to the top. Not just pursue but prosecute.

It would appear that the current AG has taken a new view of polling, public opinion is based on polling. It seems that he believes the results of polling. If the majority says on thing then it must be true. The poll must be right. I remind him of the polls just last year that had HRC up by several points and in some cases by double digits. If the polling data was correct up until last November’s election HRC would be sitting in the White House and his ass would still be sitting in the Senate.

Doing the right thing should be a matter of conscience not at matter of public interest(polling), whether it has diminished or not. Right is right and wrong is wrong.

It seems that your reluctance to pursue these matters indicates that there is something to hide. We as citizens of this Republic have a right to know the truth about those in our government. You, Sir have an obligation to the citizens of this Republic.

Now is the time to embark on a Great Crusade, a crusade for truth.

Falling apart at the seams

The political establishment may have at last met its match. At long last we may see the party of Lincoln on the ash heaps of history along with the Federalist, Whig and Free Soil parties. At current there are two republican Senators who will not seek re-election, hopefully many more will join them. One of them cites something akin to party disloyalty, disloyalty by the president, as his reason for not seeking re-election. I say good riddance and dont let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya on the way out and please take as many of your kind as possible with you. I doubt that the democrats will ever field a candidate that would turn the democrat party on its ear as President Trump has done with the republican party. More on the democrats later.

President Trump has done more to expose the corruption in D.C. than any president in recent history. President Trump has not hijacked the republican party, he has however exposed the party for what it is. The republican party is now what it has always been, the party of big, big government. They believe that for every problem there is a government solution, when in fact most problems are the fault of government interference and intervention.

In order not to paint with too broad of a brush, let me say this. There are people serving in Congress in both parties that want to do the right thing. There are two things stopping them, first are the establishment politicians and second is the political party machine. The problem is that those wanting to do the right thing are few and far between, scarce as hen’s teeth.

Let me take a side road for jest a minute. There are many that call themselves Constitutional Conservatives while at the same time saying how much they admire Abraham Lincoln. They talk out both sides of their mouths. No one can be a Constitutional Conservative and an admirer of Lincoln, impossible I say. Lincoln did more to destroy the Constitution and this Republic than any other President. He took it upon himself to appoint himself Caesar of America. Read your history and research this for yourselves, you may just be surprised at what you find out about Mr. Lincoln.

Let me continue on this side road. More Presidents than not have done their level best to find a way to get around the Constitution. Most have been very successful at circumventing the Constitution. Some have weaponized the government, using government agents against their political opponents. Some have used the government to reward their supporters. Some have done both. Just following in the foot steps of Lincoln. The damage they have done may be unrepairable at this late date.

Now to the democrats. It seems that the democrats will risk losing an election or two even three just to get what they want. The best and most recent example of this would be Obamacare. The democrats took a gamble, a gamble that has paid off and will continue. Let me explain.

When the democrats had control of the entire government, the House, the Senate and the Presidency. They introduced, passed and signed into law the ACA(aka Obamacare)the was no republican input or votes in support of the ACA. It was purely a democrat law. If it worked it would have been a huge victory for the democrats. But the ACA was not designed to work, it was intended to fail. This is best shown by the statement of the former democrat Speaker of the House, when she famously said, “You have to pass it to find what is in it”. Since most if not all of the democrats voted to pass the ill-fated law never read it, they did not care what was in it. Then it started, the republicans stating how bad it was. But how did they know it was so bad? It would seem that no one read the thing. The republicans began their campaign to repeal the ACA. The democrats had the republicans just where they wanted them and their gamble began to pay off.

The republicans gained control of the House, but the democrats still controlled the Senate and the Presidency. The republicans began their attempts at repealing the ACA. They knew it would go nowhere, it would never be passed in the Senate. Little more than political grandstanding. Next the republicans took control of the Senate. Legislation finally would reach the President. They full well knew two things. First they knew the president was never going to sign any legislation that repealed the ACA, the democrats still controlled the presidency. Second they knew that they could not find enough votes to override a presidential veto. More political grandstanding.

The republicans either fell into a carefully crafted trap or painted themselves into a corner. There is a third possibility that I will get into later. The republicans from 2010 ran on a campaign promise to repeal the ACA. Then the term repeal and replace was bandied about. Well they have been unable to do either. They cant even find enough support in their own ranks to even get legislation moving forward. The republicans control the House, the Senate and have the Presidency. Which brings us to the third possibility. The republicans only said what would get them elected, there never was a real intention to do away with the ACA. Now we have a bi-partisan effort to save the ACA. So the republicans were lying all the time. Oh, color me shocked. The reason that the ACA is still with us is because the party that crafted it and the party that supposedly opposed it are both big government political parties. At some point the ACA will morph into a single payer system at which time the government will have complete and total control over the entire health care system. I believe it is or will be called Medicare for all. One thing for sure we will never be subjected to the lie about repealing the ACA again.

Now lets visit Tax Reform. It looks like some will get a tax break, a lower percentage paid into the government. But hold on, the republicans are proposing a plan that lets individuals put less into their 401k. A 401k lets a person build up a personal retirement account, tax deferred. Meaning the government only gets their cut when withdrawals are made. The republicans want to lower that amount. Meaning two things, first people will put less into their 401k(having less when they retire, if they can), second they will be having more taxable income(more revenue for the government). The tax cuts are only an illusion. The government gets their cut sooner. Even with a lower rate the people will see their taxable income going up, and on the same pay. Go figure.

Lets go back to the democrats for just a bit. When the democrats are the majority they seem to be able to any thing they want, the republicans being the minority seem to be unable to stop them. When the republicans are the majority the democrats seem to be able to stymie them at will. It leaves one to wonder if the democrats are the perpetual majority no matter which party is the majority. So much for a two-party political system. The democrats took a gamble to pass the ACA, the republicans are unwilling to take a gamble on repealing the ACA. The republicans may just find themselves in the minority again, and possibly forever.

I said the democrats were willing to take a gamble, I did not say they were stupid. Though the speeches and remarks by some democrat congressional members would indicate otherwise. Back in 2010 the democrats had the “whole ball of wax”, the House, the Senate and the Presidency yet they made no attempt at gun control. They could have had their way in the arena of personal firearms and the republicans would have been powerless to stop them. Yet they did nothing even though they are anti-gun zealots. Funny thing about this is the fact that no gun control group has yet to chastise them for taking no meaningful action when it comes to guns. No going at that alone as a political party would be tantamount to political party suicide. Gun control is the only area that the democrats have any interest in bi-partisanship, they are willing to take some of the blame for that one but not all of it. The way the republicans cave it will not be long before they join the democrats on gun control.

Now let’s go on to debts, deficits and budgets. The Republicans have proposed a 4 trillion-dollar budget, but there is no indication as to where that money will appear from. Perhaps a money pit or a printing press. We have been told for so long that there exists a national debt, hell I have even repeated that. I have read that the amount is close to if not exceeding 20 trillion. Now I am beginning to wonder if there is a national debt. It seems that the government can always find money somehow somewhere. We basically have no idea how much money the Treasury has, time to time has not shown up yet. We have no idea how much money is spent, or what the money was spent on. Patrick henry was right about the definition of time to time. There is no audit and no accountability when it comes to the Treasury or the Federal Reserve and any efforts to do so are stymied. The national debt may be non-existent, but rumors of its existence serves as an effective scare tactic. Each political party blames the other for the national debt, but both parties spend money like drunken sailors(not meant to disparage drunken sailors). We are told that a national debt exists and we are also told how much each of us or household is responsible for. I have borrowed nothing I am responsible for zero dollars. The taxes that I pay should be sufficient to cover my share of the costs to fund the government, for the things the government is supposed to do according to the Constitution. The only way I could possibly owe more would be if the government is operating outside of the Constitution.

Back to the republican Senators not seeking re-election. You obviously dont have the guts to follow through on your obligations. You will be departing with your “war chest” stacked full of cash, not to mention the millions you have acquired and a nice fat pension. You are set for life while those of us who counted on you to be honorable are left down here just getting by. Don’t worry yourself too much over our fate, we will get by not because of what you have done but in spite of what you have done.

One last point. For those complaining about the slow progress in draining the swamp consider this. If you drain the swamp to fast you may just find yourself up to your ass in alligators.

One down many more to go

It would appear that President Trump has ended one welfare program, actually it is two, two for the price of one. Ended is the cost sharing portion of Obamacare. That means that we hard-working citizens will no longer have to pay for others lifestyle. It also ends a corporate welfare scheme, the insurance companies will no longer be paid to overcharge for insurance products. Well done Mr. President.

Now here is the “fly in the ointment”. Congress can appropriate monies from the national treasury to fund these two welfare programs. My guess is that congress will appropriate monies from the national treasury. They will do this for two reasons. The first being is that they need campaign donations from the insurance industry. The second is that this welfare program is like all the rest a vote-buying scheme. The old back-scratching scheme, “You scratch my back and I will scratch yours”.

I am also of the opinion that the republican controlled congress has made no serious attempt to end Obamacare for the same two reasons. Doing so would have cost them both campaign contributions and votes. The insurance industry could have done much better with the monies donated to political campaigns, but then they would have not put corrupt politicians in their pocket.

So, lets discuss the insurance industry and the lobbyists for the insurance industry for just a moment and the possible correlation of insurance premiums. Insurance companies charge for their premiums to cover overhead. The insurance company employees have to be paid, whether it comes from the company directly or is included in the premiums, the employees will be paid. How much do you do you think it costs the insurance industry as a whole to have lobbyists? Millions or tens of millions? Who pays for the lobbyists? Where does the money going into political campaigns come from? Would premiums be lower if not for the lobbyists and campaign contributions? The insurance industry looks out for the industry and not those who buy policies. There is a reason that former politicians become current lobbyists. There is also a reason the former lobbyists become current politicians.

The same goes for the banking industry. The people receive a mere pittance in the form of interest on their savings, while the industry pays millions for lobbying efforts. What is the rate you receive on your savings? What is the rate on your mortgage or other loan? What is the dollar amount from the industry in the form of campaign contributions? What would your rate be if not for paying lobbyists and campaign contributions. The banking industry looks out for the interest of the industry not those who use the banks.

Politicians look out for their political careers not those they are supposed to represent. Or do they? If this is a representative republic just who do the congress critters represent? It sure aint me and you. They represent their moneyed interests.

Now that President Trump has brought this non-sense to an end the congress critters are screaming in agony. He has out-smarted them. They now claim that millions will lose their health care insurance, the premiums will be to high for them to afford. They make it sound like they care about the common man. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It was the politicians, the democrat politicians, who wrote, passed and implemented the health care law known as Obamacare. They wrote it knowing full well it was unaffordable, that is exactly why they included a subsidy program. They did not give a hoot about your health care or your ability to afford insurance, they wanted to ensure a steady flow of revenue for the insurance industry, which in turn ensured a steady flow of campaign contributions. Please wise up.

If the politicians really cared about your ability to afford or have health insurance they would lighten up on the regulations that curtail job growth and opportunity. You do not need subsidies to afford any thing. What you need is job then maybe, just maybe you could get insurance through an employer sponsored health care plan, a group plan. Do you want a job or a subsidy?

While I am on the subject of ending subsidies, all of them should be ended. Welfare included. I am of the opinion that “If you don’t work you don’t eat. I said dont not cant. There was a time in which the community and the associated Churches helped those that had fallen on hard times. There were even private charities that were equipped to help those that could not work long-term. The problem now is that government has caused such a demand for assistance that the Churches, communities and private charities can no longer keep up.

The child credit on the tax forms should be eliminated. I am personally tired of seeing and hearing from people that they got their “tax refund” check and it was more than they paid in in taxes. A tax refund is when you get a little bit back when the government took a bit too much. A “refund” is not when you get back more than the government took from you. What you received was a welfare check and nothing more. It was money they never earned, nor were entitled too. I have even heard some say that they did not deserve the “refund”. They did not return the money, they spent the money and in some cases on the damnedest things imaginable. They could afford the things they bought not by their own efforts, but because of the efforts of others. Before the government could give them anything it first had to be taken from another.

One more thing. Maybe those enlightened individuals in congress should read a short story. “It is not yours to give”.

I might as well end with this. I would like to see the day come when those that received money from the government they had neither earned or were entitled to send the money back. What the government calls “entitlements” are just welfare payments. You are entitled to what you earn and nothing more. If you feel that you are entitled to more, go earn it. Be independent not dependent. Mark those welfare checks return to sender, if you have the courage.

I have a hunch that Dixie, The Confederate States of America would not have become a welfare state.

What was right in 1776 was right in 1861 and is right today.
