Q and A – politicians (q) and one judge (a) – anything missing?

Well this old guy must be honest – he is one of perhaps many who spent a bit too much time perhaps over the last several days getting way too much input resulting in the lengthy title above.  And it’s closing two word question – anything missing?   Here the old guy goes again offering his two cents worth:

·         One group apparently gathered together with one seemingly ongoing repetitive line of motivation – do everything we can to make sure we are running the show and picking the judge candidate and end result next time
·         This group is anchored in mostly brief questions and issues and situations and circumstances that apparently appeal to big fat chunks of their electorate every two or four or six years
·         Best thing they apparently can do is saying/repeating not a word about possible approaching financial bankruptcy or something akin to that chosen world of someone else’s problem offered free of charge to those who somehow or another want/desire/seek/live in/for something free of charge
·         In other words – buy votes
·         We – this old guy – still seeks someone – some teacher or some educator – some historian – some wise older human being – someone somewhere in our wonderful land and country that so many have given all for – to flush the costly ongoing do something for me logic and motivation of this group
·         So, is this why this old guy writes these few words asking the above question…
·         …”anything missing?”
·         NO, it’s not.
·         What is missing from this lengthy repetitive form of mostly old men (yeah, we know, the gals are movin’ on in to the group) doing this and that over and over again?
·         Do you know?
·         Well we do and we offer it HOPEFULLY free of charge.  We did not hear even one of the other group – the group barely hangin’ on to leadin’ us – we the people – in this “freedom” or whatever nonsense of theirs – did not once hear one of ‘em asking the hopeful judge about our responsibility to not only repay the money we borrow but in so doing not – we repeat – NOT stick our kids with…
Simple question Mr. Wannabe Judge – is it okay for these ______to stick kids with DEBT?  Is that what you do with your kids?

A Simple Suggestion

We, thefundamentals, once again suggest and encourage reading Mr. John Kass as often as possible for many reasons – each and every one of ‘em best decided by each and every one of us – we the people.

If that doesn’t get it for you – well do a little searchin’ – we think that’ll work.

John McCain (1936 – 2018)

On Oct. 26, 1967, Sen. McCain was on his 23rd mission and his first attack on the enemy capital, Hanoi. He dove his A-4 on a thermal power plant near a lake in the center of the city.
  As he released his bombs on the target, a Russian-made missile the size of a telephone pole blew off his right wing. The lieutenant commander pulled his ejection-seat handle and was knocked unconscious by the force as he was hurled from the plane. He came to when he hit the lake, where a mob of Vietnamese had gathered.
  With both arms and his right knee broken, he was dragged from the lake, beaten with a rifle butt and stabbed in the foot with a bayonet. Then Sen. McCain was taken to the French-built prison that American POWs had dubbed the "Hanoi Hilton."
  So began 5 1/2 years of torture and imprisonment, nearly half of it spent in solitary confinement. During that time, his only means of communicating with other prisoners was by tapping out the alphabet through the walls.
  At first, his family was told that he was probably dead. The front page of the New York Times carried a headline: Adm. McCain's Son, Forrestal Survivor, Is Missing in Raid.
  The North Vietnamese, however, perceived that there was propaganda value in the prisoner. They called him the "crown prince" and assigned a cellmate to nurse him back to health. As brutal as his treatment was, Sen. McCain later said, prisoners who lacked his celebrity endured worse.
  Shortly before his father assumed command of the war in the Pacific in 1968, Sen. McCain was offered early release. He refused because it would have been a violation of the Navy code of conduct, which prohibited him from accepting freedom before those who had been held longer.
  "I knew that every prisoner the Vietnamese tried to break, those who had arrived before me and those who would come after me, would be taunted with the story of how an admiral's son had gone home early, a lucky beneficiary of America's class-conscious society," Sen. McCain recalled. "I knew that my release would add to the suffering of men who were already straining to keep faith with their country."
  His lowest point came after extensive beatings that broke his left arm again and cracked his ribs. Ultimately, he agreed to sign a vague, stilted confession that said he had committed what his captors called "black crimes."
  "I still wince when I recall wondering if my father had heard of my disgrace," Sen. McCain wrote.    "The Vietnamese had broken the prisoner they called the 'Crown Prince,' and I knew they had done it to hurt the man they believed to be a king."
  In March 1973, nearly two months after the Paris peace accords were signed, Sen. McCain and the other prisoners were released in four increments, in the order in which they had been captured. He was 36 years old and emaciated.
  The effects of his injuries lingered for the rest of his life: Sen. McCain was unable to lift his arms enough to comb his own prematurely gray hair, could only shrug off his suit jacket and walked with a stiff-legged gait.

In his final book, reflecting on his life as it came to an end, McCain wrote: "It's been quite a ride. I've known great passions, seen amazing wonders, fought in a war, and helped make a peace. I made a small place for myself in the story of America and the history of my times."

Please read John Kass.

For sometime this old guy has made a very simple statement about this wonderful country of ours – we must repay DEBT. No one with even a tiny brain and a few still working brain cells sticks their kids – heck, any kids – with DEBT.

Kass gets it – almost all the rest of our press smelly ones don’t.

Folks America was built by good women and men – many of the men gave all for us – who simply refused to expect others to do something for them. They most certainly did not want government nincompoops doing anything but a few basics – yes, we call the few basics our military men and women and maybe – MAYBE – one or two more.

The bad ones that our politicians now actually seek votes from – well folks both the politicians and the bad ones need to be flushed. No different than what we the people do with our waste each and every morning.

We have no clue if Mr. Kass would agree with the above suggestion – frankly he does one heck of a lot better job of speaking/writing than this old fart does but know this – we the people are self destructing. Quickly self destructing.

Discount trump…

…and pay the price.

One of the several things at least half of our overpaid politicians – their supporters including bunches of government “nonemployees”  and attorneys and the media fatso dopes aplenty – may not quite be getting is described possibly in the above article.

Have you noticed that this guy trump – #45 – always seems to be a step or two ahead of the overpaid fatsos listed above (yes, we are fairly certain the fatsos behavior and other forms of their ongoing physical and mental ridiculousness may well be a current human version of the British fatsos our founders flushed some 250 years ago or so) – huh?

Well we’ll see.

Why do so many of us put up with the Donald?  Huh?

To which we offer a very simple answer – in the paradise of the fatsos even a guy or gal with just an occasional moment of humanity is pretty much a-ok!

What next?   May well be best to get caught up a bit on history – we appear to be flirting with a repeating mode of self destruction (read the words at the top of this page.)

One last comment/suggestion – read John Kass – he gets it!

Freedom of the Press

Please read the following if you haven’t –
·         We support out founders who promoted the four title words above…
·         We do often wonder, “What the heck would they make out of this mess - almost nonrepayable amounts of debt?"   Lots of that debt pays the useless (nonproductive) nincompoops that we the people have our earned money taken to pay double/triple what we make…
·         Our founders said/published/made legal our freedom to flush them?    Useless unneeded (no, not our military) government nonemployees.  It's our job to flush 'em.  We the people.
·         When it comes to the press it seems the only option is – don’t buy any of the stuff that advertises and pays them with the money - our earned money - we buy the stuff with
·         As to the fatsos not producing anything – well folks that’s gonna be tough because they now can take big chunks of our earned money in our towns, cities, counties, schools, states as well as the DC nincompoopsaplenty…
·         …unless we got off our fat behinds and find a few who simply say – STOP – ENOUGH!!!

Regardless of whom you voted for on 11/8/2016…

…you need to read this analysis of what goes on when a government – any government – anywhere – becomes exactly what/why the United States of America was created for/by our founders – fought and died for by our young men for many years now:

Regardless of who you voted for we ask this simple question – where is the jail large enough to hold the “government employees” who engage in nonsense and illegal behavior?   Aren’t many hired (paid for) by “we the people” for the sole reason to arrest and indict and prosecute and then jail fatsosaplenty doing similarly what these “government employees” are doing now?
We were founded by good women and men who died to never ever again live with the nincomPOOPSaplenty of their day.  They flushed the “government” dopes (aka POOPS) of their time.  Folks, we had better get movin’ – get flushin’.   This crap goes on almost everywhere – and it’s a flowin’ 24/7 right here at home!

What’s going on and why?

Let’s see if we can make this fairly direct and hopefully brief –
·         Do we – thefundamentals – think what is going on has anything to do with Russia – its frequently elected boss – its futzing around in our elections – just like our country does in other countries?
·         The answer to the above is – no – not for a second
·         So what is going on? 
·         Well what’s about to occur?  Do you know?
·         We do – two things – a new judge in a few months and an election in one or two more.  That’s what’s going on
·         Well so what – doesn’t that happen often?  Every two years – maybe a bit longer for the judge?
·         You bet – but that’s not why what is going on (by the democrats and the press) is going on.  The reason is basic – fundamental – obvious – and it is all about the party out of control finding themselves losing more control come the senate vote on the judge and come the vote on the 435 and 1/3 of the 100 on 11/6/2018
·         So what will they do or try to do?  Well darn near anything and they have several groups that also realize what is going on and those groups face the exact same deterioration/reduction/fear of disappearance that the democrats realize is occurring and it simply is based on their ongoing failure and what they think will postpone that awareness
·         Stop and look at the financial condition of anywhere they currently and for some time have had political control – here is our quick list – DC -  New Jersey – Illinois – California – and more – here take a look:

·         The above is several years old but do this – on your own – ask to see the debt and the pension obligations of some of the places in blue and green above – or read the following:
o   Having promised public workers big pensions without saving the money to pay them, many of these states are fiscal time bombs. Nationwide, state pensions have unfunded liabilities totaling nearly $1.4 trillion, according to Pew Research. Not coincidentally, of the states with the 10 largest deficits by dollar value, eight do not have a right-to-work law. Three states—California, Illinois and New Jersey—account for a third of the pension hole. California and New Jersey each have net liabilities of about $170 billion, and Illinois’s are $140 billion.
o   The Illinois crisis is so severe that paying the promised pensions would require a 30-year property-tax increase that would cost the median Chicago homeowner $2,000 a year, according to a study from three economists at the Chicago Fed. Not a penny of that added tax money would pay for better schools, police, roads, hospitals or libraries. Already, Illinois’s property taxes are among the country’s highest.
o   Will the change spur pension fixes and other fiscal reforms in states like California, and Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maryland?
·         Above written by two guys – Arthur Laffer and Steve Moore – guys who like facts – do you?  If so read the entire factual article at:  https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-court-tosses-blue-states-a-life-jacket-1531263883?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1

·         Folks the democrat party and its towns, cities and states are on the chosen road of self destruction.  Study it – then study it more.  Ask yourself – do I want my country/state/city to become one of those places?   My kids - their kids - to live there?

·         If the democrats can get back in control – they already have the media – it needs the same nonsense to survive – and get back control of the house and the senate then they can print the money/open the borders/buy votes for another 10 or 20 years before the “you know what” hits the fan!

What’s going on and why?  Now you know.
