This is an excerpt from a posting in the Western Journal regarding the raid on Mar-A-Lago just a few days ago. It kind of makes you wonder where this country is going.

“If President Joe Biden and his regime would use such heavy-handed tactics and take this unprecedented action against a former president and chief political rival, what will they do to the rest of us?

What could the feds do to someone who does not have the nearly unlimited financial resources to fight prosecution by an out-of-control government?How easily could agents run roughshod over a citizen who doesn’t have Secret Service protection and surveillance cameras guarding his residence?

The prospects are truly frightening.”

The way I understand it, the 87,000 will be over ten years, a large number will be to replace retirees, and so on. However, this tax hike was totally unnecessary and why do they have to be armed? We also did not need to increase their number at all. Simplify and tighten the tax code. They don’t want to do that because the rich would actually pay more in taxes. Right now their tax attorney’s will keep them from paying more.

Who thinks that willy old fox president Donald J. Trump instigated that whole Mar-A-Lago raid to boost his news coverage? He once said bad press coverage is better than no press coverage. His donations have skyrocketed. He is on the news non stop since the event. It makes you think. He is pretty sharp.

I am seeing something very disturbing, the democrats are getting stronger in DC. If they keep the majority in the Housse and the Senate for two more years, God help us. We also deserve to lose this country, because it means that we are just too stupid to help ourselves.

Biden said we had 0.0% inflation for last month. Why did we need a bill to fight inflation? I know it was because they wanted that IRS add-on. Pelosi couldn’t get it passed the first time she tried, but she got it this time, bitch!

I am hearing that the Chinese are trying to gain power over the Panama Canal. The canal while important, it is obsolete. Why don’t we build a larger more modern one with other countries helping out? One that can handle even tankers and our aircraft carriers.

I am against debt forgiveness. A debt restructuring OK. Colleges are incentivized to get students to take more expensive private loans. This has to stop. Tuition prices are outrageous. This has to stop. Our young adults are being brainwashed by these overpriced universities. They are ending up with worthless degrees. They are graduating with huge debts that makes them more susceptible to government manipulation. Why do you think most of the millennials favor socialism?

I want to know why we are waging war against our children? First of all our government is doing nothing to stop the wholesale slaughter of our next generation with Fentanyl. Second of all are we trying to turn the surviving youths into helpless/hopeless neurotics? Please tell me that we are not still making our children wear masks in the classroom? Why are we going out of our way to confuse them with these gender changing options and making them watch drag queen shows as if this is the norm? Our kids IQs have slipped because of the covid lock-downs, now we are making them afraid of their own shadows with these masks. They are not going to be able to interact in a normal manner if we keep up this BS with these damn masks. We need to allow children to be children without throwing the weight of the world on their shoulders. Our country is being destroyed from within. Don’t kid yourself if you think this is normal progress for an advanced society. The Chinese communist party have been waging war against us for decades. They knew that they could not beat us in an armed conflict. Well now that they have weakened us so much, they probably can, especially with a half-wit in the President’s seat and his hopelessly lost replacement just chomping at the bit to take over.

The litmus test will be if we can actually have a fair election this fall. If we can’t it is all over, because the fat lady will be singing very loudly by then.

What is going on with all of our young athletes just up an dying for no apparent reason? A 20 year old hockey player just died. “At least 69 athletes collapse in one month, many dead. The reports of athletes who suddenly collapse have been increasing noticeably lately. Heart problems such as heart inflammation are often the cause – one of the known life-threatening side effects of Covid vaccines, which even the manufacturers themselves warn against.” What has changed in the last year in a half? They are spot on, Covid vaccinations, for young adults. Something that was totally unnecessary. This is crazy not only is our next generation being poisoned with Fentanyl, but our healthiest individuals are being killed by useless Covid vaccines. If you have had the vaccine recently I would have to advise against doing any strenuous workouts until the effects have worn off. At least a year to a year and a half. Hopefully by then the effects of the mRNA vaccine will be over.

I was watching Steve Hilton on Fox. He had a guest that made a good point. He said that cities are hotter than the surrounding countryside because of all the dark rooftops of the skyscrapers and the blacktop roads. He said that they should coat all the roofs white. Great idea. Pretty simple to do. Did you know that the original highways built under the Eisenhower administration were made out of concrete? This meant that all those roads were lighter in color, so they reflected more heat. Why did we ever change to blacktop roads? Why do they have to be black? Can we not add a lighter pigment to the tar to make the roads more reflective? Is this possible?

What happened to the hybrid car? It seemed like a perfect answer to the climate control problem, despite being a little more expensive. When the battery died out, you simply switched to gasoline and the car natteries charged up while you drove. This cut back on the drain to the power grib substantially. It also would work on trips. So why don’t you hear about them? Why are we going all the way to straiht electric cars? At least it would act as a bridge to the electric car. It would give the industry to catch up. Because frankly the industry is not where it needs to be. We also need to improve our power grid and if electric cars are going to replace the fossil fueled vehicle, it needs to be able to compete head to head with it. The same thing happened with digital cameras. Now now one even thinks of film cameras, well almost no one. It is estimated that we have 250 millon gas cars and trucks in the US alone. We are looking at a replacement cost in excess of $150 Billion to replace them, if not more. That is if they were equal in performance which they are not. Every head to head test they lag behind. The only one do they win is acceleration. When you factor all the expenses involved with electric cars they are either the same or more expensive to run. I am factoring in charging, maintenance and battery replacement. Disposing of the batteries is actually nore damaging to the environment then disposing the components of gasoline powered cars.

One more thing, take a family of four, where the children are teenagers. In this case it is not unusual for the family to have four cars. How can that family afford $240,000 to replace those cars?

Well, I guess my wife Connie and I have finally decided move to the Philippines when we retire. I have had my 401K devastated twice by market crashes. Now we just have our Social Security to look forward to for our income. Connie is four years younger than me. So I have to work until I am 70, so she can collect half of my check. Without her half we will not have enough to live on. I had planned on paying off the house before I retired, but expenses keep on coming up. I had to buy a vehicle because my truck got totalled. I needed bariatric surgery, so I needed to take out a loan to cover it. The harder I work the further in debt we get. So now we will still have a mortgage when I retire. That basically sucks. So we have agreed to send a nominal check to my mother in law in the Philippines for her house. So we will own her house in seven years. If she is still alive by the time me move there. She can live in a Casita on the property. Now we can live on my social security check alone. When Connie can collect half then we will have even more money. I am sorry we have got to this point, but the US is no longer the place it used to be. They call the Philippines a third world country. But my wife’s family is happy there. That doesn’t sound too bad to me, and if that means I will be happy there, sign me up.
