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.

 

‘Pastafarian’ allowed to wear spaghetti strainer in driver’s license photo


The Registry of Motor Vehicles allowed a Massachusetts woman to wear a spaghetti strainer on her head in her driver’s license picture as an expression of her “Pastafarian” religion.

Normally I would think this woman was trying to keep space, versus illegal, aliens from being able to read her brainwaves.  When I saw that this was a religious issue I thought, and least she isn’t wearing one of those Islamic Bhurkas (?) that just show the eyes.

I would think that this qualifies as good news..  and so I applaud the news organization that simply reported this, and did not ridicule either her, or the Massachusetts DMV.    While there is always room to make fun of someone in a story such as this, it is nice to see that they can actually publish a story where they don’t feel like they have to make inane editorial remarks, and leave that kind of thing to bloggers, like me, who don’t have to possess any journalistic integrity.

While the woman in question said it was because of her Pastafarian religion I still wonder if, maybe, it wasn’t the space aliens who suggested it to her..  Maybe her thought waves were interfering with their navigational system.  You know, like when the airlines tell you that your cell phone could cause the place to crash, and then point out that you can use the on-board phone.   The one that probably connects you to the switchboard at CIA headquarters, where they  record everything you say.

I got this report, along with some other fun news, at WTSP.com.

Do we REALLY care what President Obama thinks?


My last post, several months ago, was on my alternate site myviewbyjoe.com.  For those of you who actually check here I offer my apologies, and this quick question..

During his time in the White House President Obama has made a  number of rash decisions, such as his comments on the incident with the Professor and the Cop where he pretty much accused the cop of being a racist, and has been indecisive, such trying to decide if he should support the Libyan  insurgents against  Gaddafi.

Sometime being indecisive is can be a good thing.  A good example of this was when the Obama Administration was trying to figure out how to punish the Syrian Government for the use of Chemical weapons…  by the time they, the Obama cronies, came to a decision it had already be found out that the chemicals, which Assad was supposed to have used, were really being used by the group we now know as ISIS, or ISIL.

Almost immediatly after the events in Furguson happend Obama’s fool in the Justice Department, before the investigations had gotten going, though not before Jackson and Sharpie had run their mouths, had said that the state’s attorney should prosecute the Cop to the fullest  extent of the law…

President Obama has shown a tendency to make rash and irresponible statements, and this is what brings me to his latest comments…  In a recent speech he made some interesting comments about violence carried out by the Christian religion in the name of God, such as pointing out the carnage carried out by several hundred years of crusades and inquisitions..  I can agree with those comments.  I just don’t know where he gets the idea that slavery and the Jim Crowe laws were done in the name of God..  I was born in 1955, about 6 years before Obama and maybe I listened to the wrong people but I don’t ever remember hearing how either of thise things was endoresed by God..  not by anyone.

I like to consider myself as being fair but I can’t for the life of me understand why, after all of his misstatements, people still listen to him.

If you still believe what he says, then you might want to think about the rumor that the Golden Gate Bridge is up for sale.

Thanks,
