Charges of Racketeering

after watching how the congress has been acting since the 20th of January, I am wondering if there should be charges of racketeering brought against the Democratic party. It would appear that the leaders of that party have conspired to wreck the country. How is it that NONE of the members of that party have voted for anything? Even with a bill that was designed to be favorable to the Dem party, the best they could all do is vote PRESENT?

This is the first time that I can remember that NO Dems have even voted across party lines. in almost every vote before this year, there have been at least 2 or 3 dems that have voted the other way. Why none now? What does the leadership have on them? What have they threatened them with? Seven months and not a yeah vote from any of them? We all know there are moderate and even conservative dems in the party.  So how could the party get them all to vote the same? Not even a good word for the President being allowed to be said? This is not right. out of almost 150 members not one dissent? Not one word to prop up the country? Just this whole resist thing?

I pray that voters remember what the Dems have attempted to do to this country. Trying to tear it down all due to the fact that their candidate lost the Presidency. They are acting like children.

who’s the boss, a joke

The organs of a body were fighting over who should be boss.

The brain said, “I should be boss, since I control what the person thinks.”

The hands said, “I should be boss because I do almost everything for the person.”

The legs declared, “I shuld be boss since I carry the body and all the weight is on me.”

So they went on, each stating their qualities and uses.

Then the Asshole spoke up, “I think I should be boss, because..”

He had not finished when everyone else started laughing at him. “You, an asshole, be the boss? You gotta be kidding!”T

he asshole was very unhappy, and he closed himself up.The body soon suffered a terrible constipation, and the organs could not take it anymore.

“Ok, ok, you’re the boss!” they gavein.

So the asshole became the boss of the body.

The moral of the story: You don’t need brains to be a boss, you just need to be an asshole.

On the Castile shooting

After watching the police car video, I can now make an opinion on this shooting. While the left and BLM will obviously try to do their best to put their slant on it, As an outside observer here is my thoughts.

I watched as Castile say he had a gun. Then 2 seconds later I watched as the cop says get your hands from your pockets multiple times.

In this case It is my opinion that Castile was too stupid to live.  Anyone trained on gun carry knows once you tell the officer that you are armed you are to keep your hands on the wheel and in plain sight. Then follow the officers instructions. Typically this will be to get you out of the vehicle safely, and disarm you.

Mr Castile did none of that. Before the officer could get him out, he kept reaching for his pocket, This to an officer, is reaching for your weapon. In this case the officer responding within his training and shot the suspect.

This should be a lesson in what NOT to do at a traffic stop. To all those that are calling for the officers head. Stop. Look at the whole of the video. then decide if that officer had the right to the actions he had to take. IMO he did. And I would expect any officer to respond in the same way.

 

( a note: I write these posts to my blog so as to make it easy for me to respond to articles that are spewing the same falsehoods over and over again)

Twitter Becoming a Safe Space?

Hi;

I was reading the latest memo from twitter about making itself better. I noticed a few lines in it that seem odd, like this one –

“We’re also working on ‘safe search’ which removes Tweets that contain potentially sensitive content and Tweets from blocked and muted accounts from search results.”

Potentially sensitive content? wtf is that? A tweet about the president enabling a travel ban, because it hurts someone’s feeling? Or me disagreeing with something someone said?

Here’s another –

“Our team has also been working on identifying and collapsing potentially abusive and low-quality replies”

What is low quality? Does this mean if I misspell a word or forget to capitalize it will be put in the bucket of undesirables?

While I applaud the actions of getting rid of multiple accounts used for abuse, These other steps seem to be odd, And leave me to wonder that if I decide to make a tweet opposing the left will it be put in the undesirable bin? Thus making sure that I am not seen by the people I am trying to reach? These actions appear to fly in the face of the opening statement –

“Making Twitter a safer place is our primary focus. We stand for freedom of expression and people being able to see all sides of any topic. ”

how can you stand for freedom of expression and still censor that freedom by following the actions you are taking? Are not the people that read the tweets not capable of glossing over the tweets that they find offensive?

To the @twittersafety folks. IF you are going to make these changes, please at least make it an opt in not an opt out option. And consider that some of us are at least smart enough to filter what we read and continue the ability for the freedom of speech that you claim to want.
