What I don’t know

I’ve often said it’s a good thing that I don’t know the day and hour of my death.  If I did know it, I would do two things: I would even the score with some people who have wronged me and I would rid the world of some people we would be better off without.

That probably sounds a little radical to some people, but isn’t it entirely fair and just? I simply can’t go along with the biblical “Turn the cheek.” Those who have deliberately wronged me deserve justice, not another opportunity to do it again.  Those whose only existence in this world is to bring harm and injury to others don’t deserve mercy, they deserve to be ended.

Yes it’s a good thing that I don’t know the day and hour of my death.

The Individual Mandate

CNN and most of the main street media are predicting doom and gloom because the latest Trump (and congressional) initiative has striped away Obama’s individual mandate.  They say it will cause millions of Americans to be uninsured. This lie is exactly why Americans should be suspicious of EVERYTHING those idiots try to promote as “reporting.”

What it actually means is that those millions of Americans are now free to choose whatever insurance plan they want or NO insurance plan if they choose.  The Democrats and their loyal liberal media are literally stewing in their own juices.  They don’t want the freedom this country was founded on, the ignorant bastards want more government control of our lives.

Fortunately, it’s never going to happen.

My one son said not to argue, we can’t really blame liberals, it’s the media’s fault for all the Trump hate and the misinformation. But it’s still hard to stay quiet when they are so misinformed/uninformed. It’s hard not to set them straight even if it makes them angry.

My opinion is they have absolutely no interest in knowing the truth.  What they refuse to believe is that the government (all governments) only have the money they tax from the citizens and none of their own. Redistributing the public’s wealth is NEVER a good idea!

No nursing home for us. We’ll be checking into a Holiday Inn!

With the average cost for nursing home care being $188.00 per day,
there is a better way when we get old and too feeble.
I’ve already checked on reservations at The Holiday Inn.

For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it’s $59.23 per night.
That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want,
or room service, laundry, Gratuities and special TV movies.

Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer dryer, etc.

Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.
$5 worth of tips a day you’ll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

They treat you like a customer, not a patient.

There’s a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.

The handicap bus will also pick you up
(if you fake a decent limp).

To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.

For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of
The nice restaurants there.

While you’re at the airport, fly somewhere.
Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.

It takes months to get into decent nursing homes, Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.

And you’re not stuck in one place forever — you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.

Want to see Hawaii ? They have Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem..
They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.

The Inn has a night security person and daily room service.
The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they’ll call an ambulance . . .
Or the undertaker. If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip,
and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you,
and probably check in for a few days mini vacation.

The grand-kids can use the pool.

What more could I ask for?

So, when I reach that golden age,
I’ll face it with a grin.

Which is it?

A few years ago, actually I think it was the 1970s, we had what was then called a “gas shortage.” Our federal government and the news media all loudly blamed it on the Arabs.  They let it be known far and wide that those greedy bastards were just robbing us by withholding their oil so we would have to pay more for our gas at the pump.

More recently, this year, we have yet another “gas shortage.”  This time the blame fell to the Colonial Pipe Line running from the Louisiana gulf coast northward. The media says America has plenty of oil to support its own demand if only that darned hurricane Katrina hadn’t damaged the pipe line so badly that it can’t function at full capacity.

The problem here is that there are still plenty of us old farts around who still remember the first lie that was put out there: “We were totally dependent on those damned Arabs.”  Let’s see, between then and now, did we stop driving so many cars? Or maybe we have more cars on the roads, but our cars are so much more fuel efficient now that we don’t use as much gas?

Actually I believe it’s neither one.  I think the real truth is that the elite wealthy who own the “energy” producing companies know when they can drain more off the common man’s wealth and put it in their own pockets so that’s what they do.  The working class can’t do a damned thing about it either.  They just have to suck it up and pay the price.

Sorry about that media moguls.  Either you aren’t as clever as you think or, perhaps not everyone is as stupid as you think. Some people have lived long enough to remember.

You won’t see this again!

Harry & Bess (This seems unreal.)
Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House,
they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them,
granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not
for sale.”

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be
the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.” As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!”

I say dig him up and clone him!
