OVERTHINKING POLITICS

The frenzy behind all these analysts over thinking why the Demos did so poorly is cracking me up. They’re coming up with crazy answers and off the wall remedies and blaming everything and every one while scratching their heads as to why the Repubs did so well. I think if you look at history, the Repubs always do well on off election years and there is a simple answer, Demos don’t care about politics like Repubs do. Repubs live and breathe politics…. and guns, Demos live and breathe parties and marijuana. The sentiment in off years, that would be any year that there isn’t a presidential election, is simply I don’t give a crap, last year was a pain in the ass. That Murphy won is more of a testament to Murphy, as no Demo has won NJ twice in a row in a long time, or maybe the obscure name of his opponent, than it is any Demo failures. Demos have won the popular vote since Mary Poppins was jumping off of roofs with umbrellas. The problem is that these news pundits don’t get how normal people just don’t care about politics, almost not at all, at least in the Demo side. Repubs are different, they live and breathe politics…. and probably gunpowder, explains why some they are so crazy and combustible. Demos are more in the realm of, I have to vote again, I just did that shit last year. I get how people whose whole lives are politics wouldn’t understand and they think that’s what Demos think about, they don’t, that’s why your shows aren’t the top rated shows but the Repub political shows are. Stop overthinking and find a way to make all elections in the same year. That will be the only way Demos win.

Inno(ld)vation

Innovation is like a mathematic equation, as time goes by, innovation replaces items quicker. As science starts rolling, like the debt clock, it starts to exponentially grow faster, where what was invented last year has now been replaced by something new and faster. I think that might be the motto for Apple’s IPhones. As electric vehicles start replacing gas powered cars, Hydrogen is already being talked as about the next revolution 5 years down the line. As electric charging stations become more readily available, someone is going to come up with the idea of integrating photovoltaic materials into the construction of the body of the car so the car recharges itself while parked and driving, at least during the day, making charging stations obsolete in about 10 years. Crazy ideas spurn ingenuity that makes things cheaper and good for the environment and economy. If you don’t pay for recharging or gas, then you have money to spend on unnecessary shit, btw, the name of the new chain store I plan to open up.

UPDATE: So… I guess there is an automaker that does that. Did not know that until after I wrote the article. The Sono Group.

HOW THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD JUDGE ABORTION

I don’t know how the Supreme Court is going to handle the current challenge to abortion, but, in my legal opinion, which won’t get you a cup of coffee even if you have the money to pay for it, the male judges should recuse themselves. I wouldn’t want to be the person telling a woman what she can and can’t do. If the ruling only affects women, shouldn’t only women be the judges? A man telling you what your duties as a woman are…. feels sort of 19th century. Most likely won’t happen.

IMO: QUALIFIED IMMUNITY

Qualified immunity only applies to suits against government officials as individuals, not suits against the government for damages caused by the officials’ actions. Although qualified immunity frequently appears in cases involving police officers, it also applies to most other executive branch officials.

A lot of people mistakenly believe this only applies to law enforcement, it doesn’t. It applies to anyone working for any government entity in the U.S.. It could be doctors, scientists, lawyers, groundskeepers, some federal contractors… as long as you derived your pay from a government agency, State or Federal. The problem with qualified immunity is that judges, who are also covered by this doctrine, have to see a violation of your rights for it this doctrine to be nullified and even then it’s a tough obstacle to get by if it doesn’t somehow state it explicitly in statutory or constitutional rights. I believe here is where an ipso facto doctrine should be made or invoked or placed into law. If the constitution was made to get rid of tyrannical behavior, then ipso facto, I like that word, it sounds funny, anyway, the ipso facto… anything that can be seen as illegal even though not clearly stated or defined should not fall under qualified immunity, or why did you make that freaking document, the constitution, in the first place. You know there is such a thing called the “spirit of the law” which means you do the right thing. Even if if the rules don’t explicitly say you can’t do something, because maybe it’s a new technology and it hasn’t been litigated yet, but you know it’s wrong, then doing it should end your qualified immunity, the reason why is because you are either a dumb dumb and shouldn’t be in that job, no malice, or just an evil asshole that should be in prison, with malice. Either way, qualified immunity is being tested but the problem, again, you are asking the government to hold itself more accountable, it’s going to be tough to do.

Ipso facto…. funny word…. latin for I’m drunk and can’t say is that a fact… right? No. It means by that very fact or act. In this case, by that very fact that the constitution was made to end tyrannical behavior, it should not be used to excuse it.

I DON’T UNDERSTAND

This is straight from the smart person, Google, where she/he tells me that….. “On Jan. 20, the nation’s largest insurer, UnitedHealth Group, reported its full-year 2020 profit of $15.4 billion, including $2.2 billion in profits for the fourth quarter, $3.2 billion in the third quarter and $6.6 billion in the second quarter.” And that’s profit alone during a pandemic. If we were to go to a government run health care system, like in most countries with way better health care, the government would not only have money for health care, it would have money for Social Security and it wouldn’t need to raise debt ceiling limits every four years and it would be cheaper for people because all the money gets pooled into one account instead of it being spread out to, how may companies, Google can you help me out….. ” In the United States, there are currently more than 900 health insurance companies that offer medical coverage.”…. Thanks Google…. That’s probably over 100 billion in profit alone every year. Better coverage, cheaper prices, better health care, save Social Security, maybe lower the over 20 trillion in debt that we owe? maybe…maybe not.

DO YOU THINK BLACK HOLES WERE USED TO SEND RADIO MESSAGES TO THE PAST?

So imagine that the theory of relativity was correct and that a black hole was maybe a time warp of space and matter allowing time to be bent and overlapped on itself. No human could survive the trip but what if we could send radio waves with messages that are in tune with brain waves? Do you think that’s how Einstein thought of his theory or how Da Vinci thought of helicopters way back when or how Newton thought of his principles? And if so why didn’t they send the formula for Nutella back, what’s wrong with these people?

RADIO WAVES FROM SPACE

Strange radio waves coming from the heart of the Milky Way stump scientists

By Katie Hunt, CNN

This is the heading in a article printed by CNN. In April, in one of my blarticles, I wrote that we should send radio signals through a black hole to see if they would travel back in time. That article will be reposted. What are the chances that those radio signals from the middle of the galaxy might be some kind of futuristic event. I mean probably almost nil but the timing is funny as hell. Maybe the unexplained radio signals are some future version of us sending back a message, most likely saying “stop arguing about politics you losers and fix the environment”. Maybe they are sending us methods to prevent a major climate disaster. That would be cool, we wouldn’t listen because I’m sure we would be busy arguing about if it was actually the Russians or Chinese or Kim Jung Un sending the message to destroy our way of life and bringing an end to fast food restaurants, but it would be cool.

According to one of the smartest people I know, Google, time travel is possible if, and I quote “General relativity. Time travel to the past is theoretically possible in certain general relativity spacetime geometries that permit traveling faster than the speed of light, such as cosmic strings, traversable wormholes, and Alcubierre drives.” Now, all I need is to find one of these Alcubierre’s and travel back in time. I don’t understand why we haven’t done that yet, instead we kill them and eat them instead of eating Tuna. Wait that’s an Albacore, I think the Alcubierre drive must be that new feature with the Lucid Air Dream Edition.

PANAMA

As the U.S. grapples with how to best deal with the Central American countries of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala and what is the best way to curb illegal immigration, it needs only to look at two scenarios, Iraq and Panama, the two countries that we invaded with our military and tried to rebuild. While Iraq is seemingly a failure, Panama is thriving 30 years later. Why is that? No seriously, why is that? I think it has to do with the fact that one country was a democracy prior and the other wasn’t. One is surrounded by dictators while the other isn’t but mainly because one uses our currency as the every day currency while the other doesn’t. So it seems that, while our current leadership tries to figure out a way to curb immigration by taking down the drug trade and introducing business opportunities, as I read in a recent article, and I applaud those efforts, wish I had thought of that, the best way to get that desired result is to look no further than why Panama worked and you don’t see an over flow of Panamanians at our border. It seems that if you find a way to invade, and the same reasons that you invaded Panama might work,, and you use the same nation rebuilding tactics in those countries, introduce the American Dollar as the main currency, you will get your desired result and you will cure immigration once and for all and you will undoubtedly go down as one of the most effective administrations in the history of this country. You will also have the added bonus of controlling those countries currency, as we are the only country that prints the American Dollar. Panama worked, make that your blue print. I get that an “invasion” might be a tad much… Figure out another way to make the U.S. Dollar their every day currency. I guarantee you it will work or my name isn’t Orville Redenbaucher. Alright, it isn’t and I can’t guarantee it will work but it did in Panama.

There are a lot of unseen bonuses if their currency was our dollar but the biggest is your influence over anyone from the east (China) trying to influence countries in our backyard. Plus the Euro is a perfect example on how expanding a currency can make it stronger. Prior to the formation of the Euro, there were maybe two or three currencies in Europe that were stronger than ours, now, all of Europe has a stronger currency than the U.S.. I’m not saying it has to be the answer but it would resolve a lot of problems on this side of the Atlantic. I know that the fear is that we would be the Germany of the Euro on this side but that kind of selfish attitude is why China is going to surpass us as the superpower of the world. Stop being selfish and start thinking out of the box a little.

MORE ABOUT ABORTION

The fight for abortion rights is under way and it looks like it will decide future political outcomes. What I don’t understand is why this is an issue in the first place. The Governors of these States that want to abolish abortion have a rationale that doesn’t make sense to me. They are saying that they can force a woman to be a mother but some of these women don’t want to be a mother. So can they force a man to be a dad? I know they can force them to pay child support but that’s not really being a dad, is it. The majority of the reasons for wanting an abortion are, as listed by the National Institute of Health are:

  1. Three-quarters said that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities;
  2. two-thirds said they could not afford to have a child;
  3. half said they did not want to be a single parent;
  4. and they were not mature enough to raise a child.

Let’s all assume that proper measures were taken to prevent pregnancy, my son was born even though contraceptives were being used but I was older, making good money, and I actually loved the woman that I would marry while she was (just in case you didn’t know who was the pregnant one) 8 months pregnant, but that’s not always the case. Telling a woman that she has to have a child in a place where there is still no medical insurance for everyone, their child could end up like George Floyd or Dulce Alavez, to be born into poverty, to be born into a community where the school system more resembles a day care and not an educational institute, where systematic racism (pretty much the same as systemic but a little less intentional and more ingrained in how the system works) still exists, is wrong. Why don’t we fix these problems that I listed before we force people to do something that they find morally objectionable, bringing a child into a place that doesn’t care about them but only cares about telling people what to do. Sometimes forcing people to have a child is more like feeding a prison system than it is complimenting humanity. These women know what’s best for them and what they are and aren’t capable of doing and handling and sometimes, at that point in their lives, being a mother isn’t one of them.

As I write this I know that I won’t change the minds of everyone, I might just change the mind of one person, but if it is the right person, a Supreme Court Justice maybe (here, I tremendously over assert that my blog is note worthy and not something people accidentally click on by accident when looking for recipes on how to remove stains from clothes), then it can have the outcome desired. As for the religious beliefs go in this situation, I urge you to keep those thoughts personal and not let them interfere with legal decisions. Not everyone has religious beliefs and the separation of church and state is important, plus God, who I do believe in, can pretty much handle things on his? her? own without our help, I hear that the omnipotent one is pretty powerful. Unless you are telling me God speaks to you, than that’s a conversation you need to have with mental health care workers or the FBI.

It doesn’t escape me that the people making these decisions are mostly male and well to do and they want to make the decisions about women, most that are struggling to survive financially. I don’t think anyone in the Governor’s Office are missing a meal (at least by the way they look) or lack any medical insurance or worry about affording that private school. Abortion is one of the few cases where someone asserts themselves into someone else’s life but it hasn’t anything to do with them. Most cases you have to show the outcome will affect you for you to have a voice, in this case you don’t even have to know the person to have an opinion on what she can do.

And as far as the people that say that I’m glad that my mother didn’t have an abortion, I bet there are a shit load that wish that Jeffery Epstein’s mother had decided to get one. For that matter any person that sexually assaulted a person that their mother had decided to get one.

THE WHY BEHIND ABOLISHING ABORTIONS IN STATES MIGHT NOT BE WHAT YOU THINK

Does anyone else get the feeling that abolishing abortion rights, coupled with stricter voting rights and lowered unemployment benefits might be a way to create segregation unintentionally. It does mainly effect the disenfranchised and minority communities the most. People would eventually have to move to states that offer them a chance to succeed or that don’t have those obstacles.
