The Trump Enigma

The Trump Enigma

I received an e-mail asking me why I keep referring to Trump as an enigma.

Enigma=a person of puzzling or contradictory character.

Trump who I have a great deal of respect for, is an Enigma.  The definition fits!

Why?  Why would someone with his wealth, waste his precious time on this earth to get into politics; much less run an entire country?

It has been said that the presidency of this nation is equal to the most powerful man on the planet.  Is that it?  Is it power?  Is Trump a narcissist ?

Putin might argue this, as might other world leaders including the infamous Kim Jung Un; who I am certain thinks the he is the most powerful man in the world.

Why do you think that these rogue countries want Nukes?

I personally don’t get involved in pissing contest and maybe this argument bodes well for a female president, as there is obviously a lack of adults in the world leadership role!

If anyone,  let me say this clearly, if anyone lobs a nuke anywhere; the stability of the world will be in jeopardy not only from a physical standpoint, but more importantly; and economic point of view.  Macroeconomics dictates, that if you destabilize a world player; you will topple down the entire “house of cards.”

I am convinced that is why the uber rich, aka George Soros meddles in the politics of different countries, he has this god complex.  Bloomberg also does, in his own way by doing silly ass things like, trying to make sugary drinks illegal.

Please boys, put them back in your pants, we have had enough of your juvenile behavior, and I for one am not impressed!

There is no winner with nukes, and truthfully there should be zero of them.  Like Guns, it would have been much better if the Ottoman Empire had never invented them.

Star Trek was ahead of its time in that they took on world issues and used them as story lines.

There was an episode (Taste of Armageddon) where different worlds were fighting a war electronically. If a city was hit, their people willingly walked into a disintegration chamber where they neatly and methodically were terminated.  Of course Capt. Kirk’s ship was hit and his people were expected to report for disintegration.  

The Answer was to obviously bring reality back to these people who had made a “neat” business out of war.

A war without the mess.

Well war is messy, people die.  Buildings are destroyed.  Why?

Do you know that the human existence as far as time is concerned can be measured as during a war, post war or pre-war?  We folks, are a pitiful lot.  We behave like animals and Baltimore is only the most recent example.  Chattanooga breaks my heart and there is no reason for it.

I am convinced that if an alien civilization was looking us over for “first contact” they would steer clear and leave some sort of beacon around this solar system warning others to stay the hell away from these animals. Bradbury was ahead of his time.

Whoever gets into office can only do so much.  I place the blame for the racial unrest in this country square on the shoulders of our current president.  Dividing the country on racial lines as well as economic and sex for god’s sake served his purpose to get his agenda passed.  Congratulations…Hope you are really happy with what you have done!

I am so proud...
There are a lot of first with this president.. Waving with one finger for the world to see is most probably the a first for any “president.”

We cannot afford to have any more progressive people in power, and those are on both sides of the isle.  They must be voted out and replaced with john q public.  This was supposed to be a citizen government of the people, by the people and for the people.  It is not!  It is made up of privileged (mostly lawyers) who have no regard, or little regard for the constitution. 

What is in it for me?  That is the first thing that they ask and what they seek.  Pitiful! 

Which brings me around to the Enigma… Why?

Why would someone who has it all, spend so much of their time and resources to become the leader of this messed up country?

People died for this country and they are spat upon.  Hollywood elites make tons of money dissing these fine people.  Our country is upside down and we need someone to right things.

Bernie and Hillary are not it!  Career politicians are not it!  You, you maybe it.  Your children may be it.  Someone who gives a damn and maybe “mad as hell” maybe it!

If I could put together a list of people that I would like to see run this country; someone like Trump may very well be on top.  I like Scott Walker, not a lawyer.  I would like to see someone like Gordon Ramsey in the mix on the staff as it were.  I don’t know about Chris Christie.  I like his outspoken manner but, I don’t know where he is politically.  I think Carly Fiorina as a VP would be a good pick.  More thought on this as the days progress.

Hope this answers the question.

State of the Union & What’s Next! #thefive

With unemployment numbers at 5.8 percent and the Dow Jones closing at record highs, one has to wonder why polls show that Americans are worried about the economy.

“There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies and statistics!”

The truth about unemployment is that once you fall off of the unemployment benefits you are no longer considered unemployed, thus you are no longer part of the statistic.  If you are under employed; you are still employed and thus no longer a statistic.  If the truth was told, unemployment would be around 20%, higher in the African American community.

The racial divide in this country is mostly a fictitious agenda foisted upon us by people who stand to benefit from there being one. Much like the fabled war on women, it suited the Democratic party for there to be one, so they invented it, sold it to the American people under the precepts that men hated women and just wanted them barefoot pregnant and in the kitchen or we wanted to take away their right to vote and or drive or whatever nonsense that they could dream up!  Most any man knows that if momma isn’t happy, aint nobody happy!  “Momma” by the way can be a metaphor for “the women of the house.”

The plan worked; it helped get Obama elected to a second term and got Sandra Fluke name recognition which will be someone to watch in the future for the political arena, or to take Rosie’s place on the View, when too many people get tired of her nonsense.

I bet her parents are proud.  Really, you get on national TV and tell the world that you want taxpayers to pay for your $6 birth control pills!  I can’t get into the liberal mindset however.  California is one of the most screwed up states in the union, yet they keep electing those that are responsible!

While the war on women and racial strife propagated by this administration was to divert your attention from the “real issues of the day.” Sadly it worked.

Benghazi and our people were not protected or vindicated. Fast and Furious turned into “they acted stupidly and if I had a son!”  America was played by the ideas of Saul Alinsky in rules for radicals and “never let a crisis go to waste.”  What if you don’t have a crisis when you need one, invent one or don’t send help when it was needed.  Look, there is a video on YouTube which some might find offensive, make that a talking point with the main stream media which is full of sycophants’, all wanting a one-on-one interview with the president, or first question at the press briefing and have no journalistic integrity left what so ever!  They have traded it for ratings.

I picture Obama sitting at his desk with a bird cage in the corner, containing a bald eagle. The cage is just large enough for the eagle to barely fit. At the bottom of the cage is a journalism diploma covered in poop, and in his lap is some small dog with the head of some main stream journalist of whose diploma is in that bird cage.

No sitting president has ever weighed in on such issues and this president has been a lighting bolt for this type of activity!  His efforts to foment racial tension have actually been one of his most successful endeavors! Between him, Jessie Jackson Jr. and Good old Al, we have racial tensions at an all time high.  Mr. Sharpton is reported as owing over $4.5 million in back taxes, why is he not in jail?  Who is protecting him?

If blood is spilled over this Ferguson deal, they will all have it on their hands.  Of course if it starts looking bad for them, they will all slither off, and deny ever being there.  Kind of like Nancy Pelosi disavowing any knowledge of who Gruber is.

If you don’t know who Gruber is, you are watching or reading the wrong news.

The truth about Obama Care came out from the creator or architect of it, bragging about how stupid Americans are.  If you tell them there is a Santa Clause; they will believe you!  You can keep your doctor and health plan and it will be cheaper.  Enough people that know nothing of math believed it; and voted for the regime that created it and installed it against the will of the American people.  When they found out just how much they were lied to about that and other things well, there was a “wave” of unhappy voters.   Of course the disillusioned voters sent a message too, by simply staying home.

That has not slowed Prince Obama down though.  No, Thursday night he will announce some executive action that is well beyond his constitutional powers “and he knows it” allowing 5 million “undocumented aliens” in the country to register and work here. While the voters clearly want him to stop he is thinking that the vote was really telling him to plow ahead at full speed!

Who really wants this? Who benefits from it?

The American people don’t want it.  Even after all of the spin the liberal media has done, most Americans don’t think that this is a good idea. At least they are thinking… except of course for the 14% who had no opinion!  14 percent of you have no opinion?  What color is the sky in the world that you are living in?

How do you think that someone comes up with a billion dollars to use in a campaign?

We already have a high number of unemployed Americans in this country.  Because of Obamacare, companies are trying to skirt the law and hire more part time folks than full time.  If you bring in 5 million more people, who need jobs, into this economy; you now create more competition for the few jobs that are here already.

With that many more “workers” you have people who have had a tough life and lived in shanty towns, so to speak, and will do it again putting many families in single family dwellings where Americans are used to going to college, getting a decent job and moving out of mom and dad’s house, into an apartment or buying their own place.  These kids are returning home living in the room that they grew up in!  Mom and dad are supporting them again and don’t even get the puny tax break, which was something!

Not only do you have more competition for the jobs out there but, you know that these folks will get government assistance; their kids will need schooling which the taxpayers will pay for.  They will need housing which I can bet the taxpayers will subsidize and medical assistance which may be simply to overwhelm the emergency rooms of this country.

His plan will act like a magnet to other countries who know that the border is not only porous but, we pick you up and give you a ride to the processing center!

  • How many people can the country absorb?
  • How many cheap workers do companies need to be competitive?
  • How many of these do the Democrats hope to turn into voters?
  • Will the voter ID laws become a hot topic in 18 months or so?
  • What happens to the Americans who pay taxes who can’t find a job?
  • How much debt is too much before we default?
  • At what point Mr. Gruber, will this country fold as our money will become worthless?  How much money can you print before we use it to wipe our backsides with it, as we can’t afford toilette paper!? Well Mr MIT smart guy?

Americans are not stupid by the way…

We have all we can do to make the rent each month, pay for groceries and keep the kids in shoes.  We are currently experiencing a small reprieve from gasoline prices; although I have noticed that those prices are going back up as we get close to thanksgiving.

We send people to Washington to represent us so we can pay attention to the things that matter to us; family, friends and taking care of our own.  While we are generous to a fault, to steal from our kids and their kids, to serve some hidden agenda; is reprehensible.  Your Actions Mr Gruber and Mr prince Obama, have consequences.

There are companies out there who utilize unemployment benefits to keep their employees viable during down time in the economy.  They furlough them while orders are slow and then bring them back after there is a backlog of work.  These are not small companies by the way, these are giants in the industry, hidden under some sub company of the giant.

There are companies who hire folks on SSI or welfare, to work one or two days a week being careful not to give them enough hours or money that their employees loose their “taxpayer subsidized form of living.”   These companies have egregious hiring practices and get away with it!

There are more companies who take on contract workers who “work” for another company that is in the business of supplying cheap labor.  All of this to keep the number of FTE’s under the magic number of 50.

Then there is retail:

They hire many people part time, promise them that after they have been there a while that they see management potential in them and they will be full time!  This story is repeated time after time after time.  Yes, they get them to work like dogs and pay them minimum wage.  When they have their fill of being treated like crap, they move on and there are a dozen more waiting to take their place.  After we get 5 million more “legal to work aliens” in the country, do you really think it will help this?!  It will be great for the retail giants who need Spanish speaking sales clerks or people to work in the warehouse.

 So here is how it will work:

You have to be the “best of the best” to get a decent job in this country that has any benefits and pay to it. Or, you have to “know” someone.

You can get on the government tit and get your free Obama phone, and government subsidized food and health care until that runs out in two more years; or until the country goes bankrupt.  You have to be impoverished which I know of people who have purposefully impoverished themselves, to get into the system.

You can get two or three part time jobs, getting about 20 hours a week from each job and maybe make enough to get a cheap apartment, take public transportation or walk and live “survive” frugally!

You get on the government tit, and work at jobs where you are payed in cash so there is no paper trail anywhere.  As far as the “system is concerned” you don’t make any money and are living on the few hundred a month that they give you.  It never dawns on them to look and see that your style of living is much better than what it should be.

You can become an inventor and invent something that no one else has thought of, except… it cost tens of thousands of dollars to protect your idea, just in this country; never mind each and every other country in the world where major corporations have some business in that country and can do with your idea as they wish; and they have the means to tie up the case in courts for eons.

You can become an entrepreneur.  Start your own business and compete with the big boys.

You can hope and argue against the legalization of drugs and become a drug dealer.  There is a huge demand for successful dealers and the margins are great!  You can even sample the product and sell your client a little light, they will hopefully never know.

Of course, a slow pay client could cost you your life but, when you deal with an unregulated group of businessmen, what do you expect?

I understand that Chicago and Detroit have some good areas for training in how to do this; the competition however will kill for their clients.  If you get killed there, you truly become a statistic.  It will never be investigated.

As more and more people become desperate, more and more criminal activity will take place leading to jobs that might be around for a while.

You can become the MAN!  You can work for the people that arrest drug dealers, and put them behind bars!  That too has its risk as “the man” has little respect in this community.

You can become a jailer, working with the criminal element on a daily basis, being rest assured that there will always be an abundant supply of “product.”

What are the answers?

Jobs to shoot for in trades would be plumber, air conditioning heating, electrician and automobile mechanic or airline mechanic.  These folks make good money and will always have work, if they have any ethics and or honor.

A military career might look promising, if you don’t mind being told what to do, and when to do it, having little or no say so about it.   There is travel involved, and you do get to work in a team environment.  Currently there is no shortage of supply, so you need to be a college grad to qualify as cannon fodder.

IT jobs are being farmed out faster than they can be created.  India, the Philippines, and anywhere but here, are where programming and engineering jobs are going.

With tens of thousand of IT folks out of work, the government still allows thousands of H1-B workers in the country each year.  If you ever go to a career fair for IT folks you will see thousands of applicants for a half dozen jobs.  Somewhere in there a company that farms out IT jobs to such countries as India will come in and negotiate a deal with those companies and money talks!  A DBA could easily get a $100K a year.  That can be farmed out for a third that, and the “farmer” can still make money!

There are companies out there that you can request a bid on some piece of software that you need developed. They in turn act like the GC on a job, and get it done for you in some corner of the world at a competitive cost and yes; there is enough in it that they make money acting as the PM and go between.

IT support or customer service is demanding but, requires someone with good communication skills and customer service skills.  If you settle for cheap you get a reputation like HP had for years.  Companies are still working this issue as people in the Philippines are getting better than Peggy in Russia or Kim in India.

Factory jobs too are being farmed out to countries that have horrible human rights issues and no concern for the environment.  While we have a president who has stopped the coal industry and hurt many workers and caused our energy prices to sky rocket, that same coal that is so dangerous here is being sold to, you guessed it, China and other third world countries that have no tree huggers, no Sierra Club and no EPA.  Magically, all of this global warming talk has nothing to do with selling coal to countries that could care less about pollution.  Obama must think that the polluted air and green house gasses in China, stay in China!

The obvious choice for anyone with a brain is anything medical.  Keep in mind that they are lowering the standards for doctors and nurses so you truly can be tomorrow’s “worst doctor,” and still get called doctor!  With millions of new people being dumped into an already over utilized system, medical professionals will be in high demand!  If you have a penchant to play god, (most doctors that I have worked with felt as if they were gods,) this field might be for you.  Nurse or medical technician or dentistry is a field worth looking into as well.

I fear that this has been in the works for sometime as they have been working on reforming law suites regarding mal practice for years.  Tomorrow; when you go to the worst doctor in the world, and he screws you up, you won’t be able to sue him.

Here is a billion dollar idea!

I have always felt that owning a tattoo removal shop would be a burgeoning business.  You could actually have both, have one shop where they put the tattoos on, and another in an upscale part of town where they can be removed!  You could even sell insurance that if you got the tattoo and later decided that you did not like it, or changed your mind, you could go to the other shop and get it removed, for free; if you kept up your modest yearly insurance fee.  You could make a deal with other tattoo shops to sell your insurance for you, and they get a commission for selling it!  You get the yearly renewals.

The insurance would be “per tattoo” and underwritten by the size, colors used, type of skin and whatever other technicality that that industry could think of.

People are mutilating themselves in wholesale fashion so maybe even offer a clinic where this type of thing can be “undone.”  Plastic surgery could have a whole new line of business besides boobs, butts, and tummy tucks!

Salesman is a vocation that requires good people skills, and communication skills.  If you are good, you can make a nice living.  Being a sales person would require that people can afford to buy what you are selling.

There are always government jobs.   The IRS is going to need a lot of new folks to administer Obama care so this is a place to apply to today!

And lastly for this diatribe, you could be a politician!  It requires the ability to act and have little or no scruples. Most politicians were once lawyers.  Most doctors and lawyers deserve every joke that has ever been written about them.

I used to do field service.  During that time I dealt with lots of both!  I dealt with some of the most famous doctors you would ever want to know, as well as some of the most notorious lawyers that you might want representing you, if you had screwed up.

To me that was always a “tell” as to if the guy was innocent or guilty.  Take OJ Simpson for instance.  He had the dream team and he got off!  Why did he need the dream team if he were truly innocent?

I once had a lawyer confide in me that it was easier for him to get you off, if he knew that you were guilty than if you were innocent.  This was a very high profile attorney which If I mentioned his name you would know it.   Between the OJ Simpson trial and that statement, I lost a lot of respect for the “system.”  It was truly “justice” is for those that can afford it.  Justice of course not being truly about what justice is, actually quite the opposite.

I had another lawyer who met me at the door who was totally apoplectic!  He looked as though you might expect a rabid dog to look before it bit your head off!  He had never met me before but he wanted to scare me into believing that he was all kinds of bad and I had better do my best for him!  They sent me in to deal with customers who were pissed off by someone else, as I could “fix things.”  I could make nice with the customer and fix things!  I stood there and let him rant for over 5 minutes, I took out a notepad and acted as though I were making notes while he quite literally spit on me, while he was expounding his thoughts about my company, our product and where he thought that our company rated.  After he started winding down as he was not getting the desired response from me, I asked him point blank; “are you finished?”

His demeanor changed immediately, he had been acting as I suspected.  He actually reached up and wiped some of his spittle off my face and then, we went about taking care of his problems.  Another such lawyer, a woman, pretty much gave me the same treatment. She told me flat out that she was a bitch!  If I did not “fix” things, she would be my worst nightmare!  I extended my hand and she was taken aback at first, and then took mine.  As we shook hands, I told her how much I appreciated her sincere honesty!

A smile broke out on her face and from that moment on, I was the only guy that was permitted in her office from my company. For the rest of my years with that company I looked forward to working with her, as she me.

This is where politicians come from. Reagan was the consummate politician, as he was a good actor! Now if we could find another actor with some scruples; that might be a good candidate!  Morgan Freeman would make a good president.  He has many believing every week that he knows something about physics! Besides, I really like his voice?  Have you ever noticed that when you read something that they wrote you read it in their voice?  I Digress…

So, what’s next and why is Obama rushing this immigration stuff?

The last thing on his agenda, probably one of his last promises to those that put him in office or who control him now, is climate change!

Why, does he care about green house gas?  Does he really know anything about it?  If he can make something happen who would benefit from it?

In order for someone to benefit financially, someone has to spend money.  Al Gore has lost most credibility but they may drag him out again to see if he can convince you that there are no more polar bears and all the penguins are turning into BBQ.  Who knows what crazy crap they will come up with and what Pelosi or Reid will say?  One lies and the other one swears to it.

Here is the problem and the reason for the rush on immigration.  What he is doing is illegal.  The republicans are going to have to spend a lot of time and juice in chipping away at Obama Care and they are going to have to spend a lot of time dealing with his immigration antics which will leave him time to further is final agenda.  During this same time there is an election in which the Republicans are going to try and get a candidate into office.  The main stream media will spend their time excoriating the republicans at each and every chance and we know that they have a little less than half the country watching them.  Fox will continue to try and keep up however there are a lot of things in the air which is what this administration wants.  And let’s not forget about the Middle East and any disruptions and or killings there.  If there are too many targets, it all turns into noise; and the public tunes out.  Football or any other type of sport wins out and American Looses!

Never waste a Crisis…!

The bottom line to this last 6 years and future 2 years will be higher energy prices, and people like Warren Buffett getting at least 7 years of hauling tar sands and oil and what have you on his railroad.  They may even use his rail road to haul parts for the pipeline!

The Keystone will pass early next year and many of the workers will most probably be immigrants from you guessed it, tomorrow’s executive order.  So instead of Americans getting a decent salary, they will use Mexicans as slaves, and put them on jobs paying them less than what they would have to pay the 46,000 Americans.

Republicans will have their hands full creating legislation for Barack Obama to Veto as they will be fully engaged in making the Democrats look bad “like they would have to try,” so Hillary won’t have a chance.  They will try and stop Obama and like I said, chip away at the things that he has created but, basically nothing will get accomplished of any consequence as remember, politics is all about raising money and campaigning!

The damage from this administration will take years to undo.  There is going to be $20,000,000,000,000.00 of debt and this administration is responsible for half of it! When the president took office the national debt was $10.6 T.

Obama will have fundamentally transformed America. The next President will have one hell of a job on his or her hands.  There is no telling where this President and his wife will retire, but my bet would be Dubai. Once there he can try to be a king or at least prince, as he will have experience!

Don’t agree? Leave a comment and let’s talk about it. Just keep it clean if you want a response.

“Schools are a pipeline to prison.”

 Those words were spoken by our not so illustrious AG, not so long ago.  I don’t know where this man got his degree but, I firmly suspect it came out of a package with a little blue man with a dog by his side as the logo.

 

The problems in our society are not a mystery as to how they happened and the “fix” is really not that esoteric either.  The simple facts are that there is no easy fix.

 

To repair the problem one first has to identify where the problems started and reverse the trend.  Any pilot knows that when you get into trouble or off course or what have you the first thing is not some knee jerk response but, slow small course corrections.  

 

It still boggles my mind that we are where we are at and the AG makes such a lame statement on national TV.  The answer he says is to “give minorities a pass.  Don’t correct them as harshly as you would someone who is not a minority.”

 

There are two basic problems.  The breakdown of the family unit, (no dad around) and the schools have been neutered by those that feel that grading with red pens or reprimanding children or heaven forbid, spanking a child is just simply not done!  You might damage their self esteem!  The parents have gone as crazy by giving into their children’s empty threats of “give me my way or I will hurt myself, I will cut my self and then you will be sorry!”  “Oh ok honey, here is your iPhone back and I have upped your data plan, please don’t hurt yourself.”  Kids have taken “I will hold my breath” one step further to cutting or worse.  If they do this parents, they need more help than you can give them with your parenting skills, seek help!

 

Consistent boundary setting is a lost concept today.  “Explain to the “child” I really wish you wouldn’t do that because there will be consequences to your actions if you do but, that is your decision.  I am keeping the phone for X weeks as I told you, because you did not do what you were supposed to….” 

 

When you set their expectation that “if they do or don’t do” as the case may be the consequence will be X,Y,or Z than you must follow through each and every time.

 

The legal system is real good about setting boundaries for all of us in that if we speed, and get caught, we will get a ticket which cost us money, time and yes it could be embarrassing.

 

When I was in school if we did something that was even slightly egregious, it usually meant a visit to the dean, coach or principal which usually ended up with a few swats and depending upon the offence, may be followed up with after school detention.

 

If you check the charts of people in prison in this country today you will see that there is a direct correlation between that rise in prison population and this drive to neuter the teachers from disciplining your child!  There are 2.2 million people in prison in the US, 75K from non-violent drug offenses.  If you could do the math you would quickly see that we have made an industry out of housing inmates! 

 

Let’s take that one step further, of the people that are currently on the government dole, how many of them could have benefited from a little “course correction” in school?  There is such a thing as character, and I think that between missing dad’s or sperm donors; and the lack of programs for young people and quite frankly the “Stuff” that these teachers are forced to teach, you have the elements for the perfect storm of mediocrity and or “failure as a people.”

 

For instance, if we could re-direct some of that money currently going out to welfare or to house prisoners and put it towards the space program, we no doubt would have people living on MARS by now.  Instead we have to waste our precious resources housing prisoners and paying people not to work. 

 

How about educating those “Americans” that would like to learn, before worrying about educating illegal aliens?  This is not a diatribe against Hispanics or others who come here to have a better life; it is however a statement that those that are here “legally” should have fist shot and not the other way around as we are currently doing in Texas and Mr. Christie is proposing doing!

 

The goal of school is to turn out taxpayers.  School by definition is part of the process and tax payers invest in you, your children and so forth in hopes that you will be a productive citizen. While I doubt few get up in the morning and say, “today I want to be a better criminal,” there are probably some who do, and that is a real loss, not only for them but for all of society.

 

Give the schools the power to discipline all children equally.  That means make the course correction in a way that will get through to that child.  If the consequence is embarrassing and painful enough, the odds of the kid doing something to earn it again are much lower than if you simply throw them onto the street!  You were right about one thing MR AG… We need to show these kids that “we do love them and care for them, and one way you do that is by not sparing the rod!

 

The numbers don’t lie and I am aghast that no one has put it together and done something about it.  So get out those red pens teachers!  Not everyone wins a trophy and some need to see a big red “F” to get their attention.  No child needs to be on the street or swept aside in some “program” that is indeed a pathway to prison.  Make some course corrections before it gets that far.  How about spending some of that money allocated for “prisons” on programs aimed at working with those families with “no dad at home.”

 

It is not rocket science MR Holder but, if we would take some steps now, just maybe we could get to teaching “rocket science” instead of “how to look innocent in a lineup.” What kids see at home today they will no doubt re-peat in their lives thus adding to the already growing prison populations, broken families and homes and “Detroits,” all over America!  Stop the madness!

 

Happy 2014!

Why do I think that UFO’s are not visiting us?

Why would they?

The only reason’s that “aliens” would come to this planet would be to exterminate us, and take the planet for themselves, or to simply take its resources or, manage us, much like we manage the deer population.  They might very well find sport in hunting us; and they might have a taste for human flesh.

Then of course we have the ET or Alf varieties, who just want to make friends and possibly eat our cats.

As a race of people, we are a violent race.  While some countries are “more mature” than others, there are elements or factions in this world who are malevolent in nature, and in fact still “live by the sword!”

There are other factions that enslave us with their corrupt, power hungry, narcissistic, maniacal, psychotic view of life, bent on gaining even more power or money, damn the cost!    I would ask them, how much money is enough?  Writing laws by the thousands, in order to enrich their lives by taking from the peasants.  No race or group is sacrosanct, they just manipulate us into believing that we are.

There is a list on the internet of the wealthiest men.  Bloomberg is worth Billions; is it any wonder that he now acts like a god; telling you what you can eat or drink or smoke.  Take your billions and go retire somewhere, buy an island and don’t take any guns or soft drinks.

There are factions on this earth who have been at war with one another most probably since they were in caves; learning to master fire.  There is in fact nothing that we have to offer a space traveler other than entertainment, much like the Romans throwing Christians to the Lions for being unpatriotic and not worshiping their gods Jupiter, Mars, Juno and Vesta.  Then they might want to do like the writers of Star Trek suggest in one episode, (original version), pitting one human against another in some sort of competitive sport where they fight to the death, with the aliens betting on which one would be victorious. Whatever a quatloo is worth in our money, maybe we should print some, just in case.  Actually thinking about it that was kind of a theme, I still remember the Gorn, do you?

My personal feelings are that if we were visited by a friendly race, we would be chastised for how noisy we were as a planet, and warned not to bring our war mongering ways outside of our planet.  I would in fact welcome such a visit as then, just maybe the super powers and the war mongering idiots of this world would see that there are bigger things out there other than themselves and their petty bickering.  Personally, I think they are all so wrapped up in their own agendas, that they truly can’t see the forest for the trees!

They all in fact need a “time out!”

Technology has truly outpaced our humanity.  We have “scientist” sending signals into space, looking for a response as well as SETI, much like the Short Wave Listeners of years ago, just listening to see what they hear.

Image

We have more and better ways to kill one another.  We have created WMD’s that will kill off the inhabitants, while leaving the infrastructure in tact.  We have such a low value for human life that we call it a women’s choice vs. what it truly is “murder,” and then we make it a political lever or football in order to paint one side in a negative light.  We kill innocent people, in order to make a point of how “bad ass we are” and than threaten that you had better capitulate to our god, or more will die.

As far as a race coming here to take our resources, I have serious doubts that we would be worth the trouble.  There are far too many worlds out there that most likely have no life at all or possibly simple microbial life, at the beginning of its evolutionary cycle.  One has to wonder if Aliens did visit us, would they consider us at the beginning of our evolutionary cycle.

Carl Sagan was a man that I admired, and while I loved his shows, his brilliant forward thinking mind, I can not help but wonder if sending a map, to where we are; out into interstellar space was a good idea.  Hopefully by the time it is discovered, we will have evolved as well.  If when found and we are visited what will they find?  A functioning world with intelligent beings, or a world wrapped in nuclear winter?

Image

Any alien passing by, on their way to who knows where, most certainly would listen to our broadcast, and if they could make sense out of them they would know that they would most likely be met with hostile threats or actions from some nation on this planet, probably multiple nations as the proliferation of nukes make there way into the hands of people who are not of sound mind and body, or have such twisted ideas of man and morality that most “normal” people, would not recognize them as sane.  They may in fact pass us by because of the hostility that exists on this world deeming us simply not worth dealing with; just to get a few cats.
