In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Where Does it End?

Texas has some new laws. These laws, like all laws, will eventually have unintended consequences. The worst consequence is that all laws create another layer of bureaucracy, a need for more tax money, and further avoidance of the fact all government entities are filled with incompetent people. Regardless of the initial intent, private citizens are harmed in some way.

Where does this end? If I had to guess, it's when a government entity either goes bankrupt, or steals private property from the citizens it'a supposed to serve. Neither is acceptable, but the majority of people don't realize their wealth, and well-being, is under constant threat by those they allow to consume their wealth. The power to stop an unchecked government is always within the grasp of its citizens, but they only become involved when their concerted efforts are too late to prevent disaster. The lone individuals that try to change things things suffer from tyrannical people in authority.

Why is it always this way? Humans are basically selfish, willing to allow others to suffer, and foolishly lured into comfort, instead of liberty. It's a huge fault, and tyrants prey on this with impunity. They make the laws, exclude themselves from these laws, and crush those that stand in their way.

Another Christmas

I've been introspective this season. Time dwindled my family down to me, and one sibling. Memories of the past have been many, and like important  papers scattered by the wind, some are lost, and some are treasured.

Merry Christmas to all that visit. Christmas is the time where even great wars were stopped to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Slippery Slope

This impeachment effort could have some terrible effects; especially for the Democrats. Making the process a frivolous effort to change the results of an election could mean a Republican house majority deciding to impeach all federal judges appointed by a Democrat simply because they don't think Democrats have the capability of making such important choices. That, and anyone - including a President - they think is unqualified.

I think McConnell should throw the articles of impeachment out, since their is no proof of a criminal act. He has the power, and should make an effort to save taxpayer's money.

Now What Happens?

The House decided to vote on articles of impeachment, which was voted in by the Democrats. Now it's supposed to go to the Senate, although the articles of impeachment are only opinions, and no treason, high crimes, or misdemeanors are included in the articles.

Now what happens? Will the Senate continue with the impeachment process; or will the Senate proclaim the articles as unconstitutional, and refuse to even consider a trial?

I don't know how much money has been wasted on trying to get Trump out of office, but it's sure to be substantial, and all those involved with this waste should be horse-whipped.

The I.G. Report and Thoughts

I've been thinking of downloading the Inspector General's report on the crooked bureaucrats at the top of the government food chain that seemingly escaped from prosecution. I might, but have a feeling there will be so much discussion about the juicy sections, I'll not have to take the time to read the report. So, I'll wait for the indictments, if there are any. I'd rather read them, watch the proceedings, and cheer when one of those traitors is frog-walked into prison.

Guinea Fowl Madness

My next door neighbor has three guineas. My brother-in-law down the road has five. They meet most mornings in the front yard, and forage for a few hours. After their morning meeting, the three will return home next door, and the five will work their way down the road....until this morning.

My brother-in-law acquired nine more adult guineas, penned them to acclimate them to their new surroundings, and his five are spending their time with the new arrivals. It's probably a guinea social thing, except the three next door are upset. They are calling to their friends, who are ignoring their plea, and the call that sounds like a wheel bearing failing is constant.

I don't know how long this will last, but I'm forcing myself to ignore what is becoming increasingly annoying. Hopefully, the day brings the five down the road for a visit, and the three next door will shut up.
