RANT: The road to hell — entitlements!

FROM THE WSJ

*** begin quote ***

John P. Donchess of Ohio weighed in: “The Senate health-care bill will pass, be reconciled with the House bill and be signed into law by President Trump. Anything less is political suicide for the Republicans. This entitlement is here to stay, despite what conservatives (including myself) would prefer. This bill advances the ball in the right direction and allows for further improvements to be made in the future.”

*** end quote ***

Once an “entitlement” is “given”, it’s HARD to claw it back.

“Conservatives” should have fought harder to prevent it in the first place. Medicare, Medicaid, and “welfare” are classic examples.

The road to hell is paved with entitlements! 

The USA is broke; its bankruptcy will be the ultimate “claw back”.

Argh!

Another “barbara streisand” malfunction?

So, as the article says, everyone who played the game got screwed.

Argh!

And, of course, the evidence has been “fixed”!

I don’t understand.

RANT: Giving away the USA to “immigrants” who don’t want to assimilate

Hi! This is a blog post I threw together in response to the recent increase in refugee numbers by Trump’s State Department, in order to convey what it is like living in an Islamizing area. I gave a talk at a luncheon a few months ago that was basically relating my story of how my hometown has been Islamized by refugee resettlement. So it makes sense to do a blog post.

I’m from the Utica, NY area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN “the city that loves refugees!” Soon every American city will be a city that loves refugees! Get ready! So I would like to tell you what it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25% (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim

I was born in Utica, a “faded industrial town” along the Mohawk River/Erie Canal corridor, and lived there until I was 8-years-old when my family moved to a nearby small college town. I loved living in Utica because there were lots of families on my block, big Catholic families with lots of kids. You could yard-hop, checking out who was available for play. You could bike around the neighborhood. There were block parties in the summer. My grandmother lived up the street. Life was good.

*** and ***

Want to know why my application was rejected several times even though we qualified? Want to know why it was so difficult to get food stamps? The Department of Social Services in my area is swamped because of the refugees. 25% of the city are refugees. Virtually all of the refugees are on welfare. And when they apply for welfare, they don’t do so as an independent entity, as I did. They go through their refugee resettlement agency who deals with the Department of Social Services for them. So basically Americans get the short shrift, and refugees get taken care of. And that’s America. This is why so many Democrats voted for Trump. Americans are getting squeezed out by non-Americans at multiple levels.

*** and ***

The nice lady who asked me to give a talk a couple months ago on my hometown asked me if there were any refugees who were an “asset to the community”. I replied that they do not consider themselves part of your community, so if they are going to be an asset to any community, it is not going to be yours.

*** end quote ***

This is so frustrating.

“We, The Sheeple” don’t seem to understand that the USA is broke beyond understanding.

We can’t afford the welfare / warfare state. And, immigrants on welfare only makes the situation much worse. 

Sad to say, but welfare has to end for EVERYBODY. And, we have to bring the girls and boy home.

Look at Switzerland as the exemplar of a peaceful nation secure in its borders and in its civil society.

Argh!

RANT: Why pay Congress Critters? They’re all grazillionaires. Or will be!

FROM THE WSJ

READER RESPONSE

Responding to yesterday’s question on Anthem’s decision to pull out of the health-insurance exchange in Ohio next year,  … … 

Harry Fisher of Connecticut weighed in: “Corporate America works full time and makes decisions on behalf of shareholders within the framework of the law. By dithering and working part time, Congress proves again that it is not qualified to manage the economy or any industry. It should repeal Obamacare in its entirety and leave the rest up to the states.”

*** end quote ***

But we pay the congress critters a lot more than full time wages. Why?

RANT: “We” need to rethink out antiterrorism strategies

The Jihadis Next Door

One of the three knife-wielding assailants who killed seven people in a terror attack in London was known to security services, authorities said Monday. Neighbors said Khuram Shazad Butt’s extremism was broadcast to the nation early last year in a television documentary called “The Jihadis Next Door,” but police said they had no intelligence suggesting the 27-year-old Pakistan-born British citizen was plotting violence. Police identified the second attacker as Rachid Redouane, 30, who they said had claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan, and the third as as Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Italian of Moroccan descent. Meanwhile, with national elections set for Thursday, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s political opponents have gone after her on security issues. We look at British counterterrorism authorities’ soul-searching following the third terror attack since March, as well as the challenge online terrorist propaganda continues to represent for companies such as Google and Facebook, where videos and other content are still widely displayed.

Seems obvious that Humanity needs to rethink our strategies and memes.

(1) Clearly, “religion” is a meme that drives people to act. Sometimes for good (i.e., Mother Teresa) and sometimes for evil (i.e., Islamic terrorism; Child marriage; Child abuse).

(2) Our current responses to terrorism is reactive. “War” is often immoral, ineffective, and inefficient as a response to terrorism. Terrorism is a tactic; not a strategy or an “opponent”.

(3) So the “civilized world” needs some more effective tactics. 

(4) I heard one tactic that struck at the heart of the religious beliefs of Islamic terrorists. And it responded me of the 1857 Sepoy Rebellion in India die to “greased cartridges”. The bodies of terrorists should become the property of the State and nothing further said. The corpses would not be released to the families or groups. It could be buried in a way that is inconsistent with their “religious beliefs”.

(5) The Swiss have a tougher standard to become a citizen. The potential citizen must demonstrate their actions to integrate into Swiss society. The USA needs to adopt that as does the world democracies.

(6) The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. When it turns a blind eye to ANY violation of law by immigrants or non-integrating minority. That means: ZERO no go zones like in Paris; no “religious accommodation” for “special spaces” in public building; and no exception to child education requirements.

(7) Revoke citizenship of those who go to fight for ISIS overseas and don’t readmit them. Strong prosecution of citizens / residents of those who communicate with or provide material support to terrorist organizations. DO something with those on the watch list — restrict their access to the country.

(8) END welfare for non-citizens now. (Really should be ended for everyone!) It appears that our society are funding these terrorists with welfare. No welfare for any immigrant. 

(9) Bring back the sponsorship requirement for immigrants. Used to be required. Then the sponsors are held responsible for those they sponsor.

(10) Prosecute enablers of terrorists.

(11) Cut off Saudi Arabia funding of these terrorist mosques.

That might be a start?

RANT: “Not the ballot box, but the other box.”

CHARACTERS AND CONVERSATION

The 19th Amendment was passed this day [JR: 6/4] around 1918. Gave women the right to vote.

I am a student of history. I find it amazing that men have always tried to keep women down. Treat them as second class citizens.

Women have had to fight every step of the way. They still are fighting men who oppose their right to control their own bodies.

The wives of such political leaders should deny their husbands marital rights for a period each time they do some asinine anti-female thing.

*** end quote ***

REMINDS me of what I wrote in my ‘magnum opus’ “CHURCH 10●19●62”:

*** begin quote ***

“Yes, when we get out of here. We’re going to have to fix that. You know we control something that can get it done. Not the ballot box, but the other box. (A giant sucking sound as pure Miss Marie used that very rude idiom.) We can end war.”

—  character “Marie” being anti-war in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 262 

*** end quote ***

Still true.

Why don’t “our” women here in the USA exercise their political might to be pro-peace pro-life pro-liberty?

Could it be that they are “delusional” and not understand the problem?

Argh!

RANT: Why should the taxpayer pay for “rescues”?

Utah Unveils ‘Search And Rescue Card’
Buy an annual subscription that covers the costs of non-medical rescue services. It’s like AAA with helicopters.

*** begin quote ***

The Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation announced the Utah Search and Rescue Assistance (USARA) card last week. With it, outdoor enthusiasts are exempt from non-medical costs associated with emergency rescue services, should the need arise.

The purpose of the subscription service is to protect both victims of unexpected worst-case scenarios, and the state and counties in which they occur. Both residents and tourists can purchase the card for single- or five-year coverage to defer fees for helicopter transport and emergency crews.

Meanwhile, proceeds from the USARA card will fund training for search-and-rescue (SAR) volunteers and maintenance costs for emergency vehicles and equipment.

*** end quote ***

Never made sense to me that the Taxpayer has to rescue the unprepared and inept “outdoorsmen”!

Sorry, but if you go in harm’s way, then you should be prepared to pay for the consequences.

If you can’t afford that, then you shouldn’t be “out there”.
