Spammers go away.


I may not put as many posts into this as I should and I don’t have a huge audience but, I do have a moderated system.

Few people seem to find a reason to share comments but I don’t intend to let in a bunch of spam just to have increased traffic.

Just as an example.  I recently deleted a comment made about my post titled “A Nation of Laws”.  For some reason, the nitwit who left the add seemed to think that a cure for ED *Erectile Dysfunction” had something to do with the post.  I could not see it, and so it is gone.

 

I would love to hear from people who would like to have a dialogue about the various subjects, but not backdoor adds having nothing to do with the topic.

Thanks,

That Joe Guy.

Red White and Blue..


I was reading about the trouble that President Trump recently had while coloring a U. S. Flag, while he was visiting some school children.

In one picture there is a puzzled looking Trump staring at the drawing of the other children and seeing that something was wrong.

Some have suggested that he was confused and trying to color the Russian flag.  I don’t know about that but, I kind of wonder how he did not know what the flag he wrapped himself in looks like.  After all, all he really had to do was look down at the little lapel pin he so proudly wears to see what it looks like.

It might be a good thing that his show was “The Apprentice” rather than “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader”.

 

Thanks,

Why I think firing the Special Prosecuter would be a bad idea..


On my first thought, I decided that this was a rather straightforward idea: if you have nothing to fear why go through all the trouble to make yourself look guilty?

Anybody around at the time of Watergate, or who remembers what that was, will remember the night that President Richard Nixon fired a bunch of the Watergate prosecutors, and how that made him look even guiltier than that the missing 18 minutes in the White House Tapes, the ones where he recorded everything that was said in his office.  We don’t know, for sure, what was on those 18 minutes, and the White House said the erasure was an accident.  The problem with that came out when it was shown that for the secretary to have erased those tape she would have had to have been a contortionists who could hold that pose for the entire 18 minutes.  Not likely.

Maybe the overall problem was, as Nixon would say later, that he allowed an “atmosphere” into the White House that allowed his staff to believe he would support them, or maybe he was just a crook.

The upshot of all this was that taken together, the tapes, the missing part of the tape, the firing itself,  and the number of staff members who went to jail it was plain to the world that he just headed off the impeachment with his resignation.

There might have been nothing more to it than over-enthusiastic staff playing at being spies, or it could be that Nixon himself was behind it, we can but conjecture as the White House spent so much time stonewalling the whole thing.

My point is, even if there were no collusion with the Russians, President Trump seems to be working hard in an effort to make us think there is something to the idea.

So what if a number of his aids are under investigation or have pleaded guilty to charges, or even his threats to derail the entire investigation, right now you can’t say yes, or no, to the idea.

What I suggest is simple.  I would like President Trump to come out in supporting the overall search for the truth.  It might be hard to prove there was no collusion as it is often hard to prove something did not happen.

I can see where he might be concerned with the possibility of an impeachment proceeding taking place, as they do not use the same rules of law as found in a real court and an impeachment might just be politically motivated, in which case maybe he can get it done while the Republicans still hold Congress?  At least those who decide they want to go on record as supporting the Donald.

I am not sure if the double jeopardy applies to Congress, they might even try again, if a first attempt fails, after the mid-terms.

We might even be able to sneak a few people into the White House staff who have at least some idea what they are doing?

 

Thank,

P.S.  In the interest of full disclosure I would like to state that in 2016 I voted for the Libertarian Candidate.

 

I have an idea..


I was recently reading about the sanctuary Cities, or areas.  While I was reading some of the material, like how it was suggested that California might want to succeed from the United States. the idea came to me that we might be able to deal with a couple of the illegal immigration issues.

Why don’t we take a look at the Kurt Russel movies, “Escape from New York” and “Escape from L.A.”.  We could pick a spot and declare it an “International Sanctuary Area”, and give it to the United Nations to administer, or just call it “Sanctuary City”.

It seems that the people in that area, San Francisco comes to mind, don’t really want to be part of the United States so maybe they would like the idea of going on their own, and they would get all of those illegal immigrants that come here in violation of our laws.

We could even provide public transportation to the City, and just build a wall around that, plus we would not have to deport anyone, just transfer them to this location.

We keep hearing from President Trump about these people, not just the Mexicans, being criminals, drug mules, and rapist, so we can let them have what they want and still keep them out of the United States.  Yes we still want immigration, just not the people who show contempt for our country by breaking in.

Would you invite the people who break into your home to be members of your family?

Does the bank offer savings accounts to people who rob it?

So we take an area, again San Francisco comes to mind, build a great honking wall around it and let these people settle there.

We could even scatter video feeds around the area and make it into a “Real Reality Show” like “Survival City”?  It might be able to pay for itself with pay per view and season passes?

Just a thought.

Thanks,

Are we being served?


I am going to start this with a link to an article in the Washington Post about how robo callers outsmart the Government.

We have a comcast phone number, which does not connect due to my putting in a better cable modem that did not deal with phone lines, but before I pretty much dismantle our phones we used to get all kinds of scams from the famous lady calling about our credit card account, which they knew nothing about to people trying to set us up with free cruises.  This we discovered the NoMoRobo, for which you can sign up here, and we did.  I won’t go into the whole thing about how it works other than do say that you set you phone up so that when your phone rings the NoMoRobo system picks it up and checks the caller ID against it’s server list, and if it detects a problem, such as spammers or malicious caller number, it just hangs up…

The system worked for us,, and the number of calls we got fell to nearly zilch, though as far as I know none of our legitimate calls got turned down.

So what is the problem?  Do the people who pass these law not pay attention to what they are doing?  Did they pass these laws with their loop holes in order to show us how much they care, all the while not really limiting the callers in any meaningful way?

Thanks,

That Joe Guy.
