And now, a few thoughts (questions) from an old fella, as Election Day arrives

Let’s keep it simple – these thoughts (questions) are mine and mine only….tee hee hee:

·         How many times does a history book simply tell its reader – we the people repeat?

·         What is it about homo sapiens that prevent knowledge based on experience?

·         Why on earth don’t we the people learn from experience?

·         What is experience?

·         Well we think it’s a combination of two homo sapiens possibilities:

1.    Noun:  practical contact with and observation of facts or events

2.    Reality:  contact…perhaps.  Learin’ and behavin’ from observation…appears to seldom occur

·         So why now – today – do we offer these few words free of charge?

1.    Well this old guy was taught them as a kid, free of charge

2.    And no, he sure didn’t do what he was taught all the time, but maybe sometimes

3.    A lot of the time he simply did what he did – discipline bye bye

4.    And now he is runnin’ out of time

5.    So he offers one thing he has done…

If one borrows money one repays it – 100% + interest + on time.  In other words, this one old guy never asked someone else to pay back money borrowed by him or supposedly for him.

What is a freedom – folks sit tight – we sure don't want to shock you – yes, we  know the nincomPOOPs buyin’ your vote now never even ponder, ask much less answer the question ”…what is freedom?”

We do – freedom simply is RESPONSIBILITY.

At the edge of the cliff, or…

This old fella – old guy – who is just grateful to have been born, raised, educated, worked, lived, enjoyed all that so many others here in America have done so much to provide to him and others, but…

The politicians now simply not only do not like each other much…many are on a trip that is somewhat difficult for this fella to grasp for a few simple, basic (fundamental) reasons.  The reasons have been shared here for over a decade now.  The reasons are getting much more complicated.  They are also getting larger…huge.  And this fella knows that the reasons are fairly well documented and repeated in history books, but…

When this guy was conceived in his good Mom’s womb, young men were training and boarding large ships (boats) to leave from America’s ports in New York and California.  Many would come home after three, four, five years.  Many would not come home – never return – many would not share the decades that this fella who was a baby back then was provided by the men who returned and the men who did not.  Why is this?   What happens when men give all or 3, 4, 5 years for the chance for others to live?  What do those of us who receive that chance owe those men…?

What does this gettin’ old guy mean when he starts this brief summary with the words…At the edge of the cliff, or…

His answer is basic – fundamental…he owes darn near everything to the men who risked all.   And, he owes all – everything – to the men who gave all…he owes them every penny of…

A very brief statement about last night’s display

Folks even an old guy like this one offering this statement simply knows that anyone bringing the various forms of homo sapiens nonsense (simply stated – little or no historic awareness of its repetitiveness) would find the VP from the good state of Indiana the obvious choice to back up the top guy.   Unfortunately the democrats – yes, particularly those in five or six states some of which desperately are buying votes in an attempt to postpone their well earned trip on the road to bankruptcy – have chosen a woman with various levels of little or no homo sapiens experiences (yes, apparently she too is a paid government _______).

We close with this question to you, the voter:  What would our founders and fighters – many of whom gave all for us, we the people – do if they witnessed last night’s display?

Folks…what’s goin’ on in America today…in the world?

Do you get answers readin’ lots of printed daily “news” and “analysis” reportin’?  Or watchin’ endless yip-yappin’ tv/info/political shows?  How about the many internet information (“ii”) offerin’s?   Many of us now have ‘xtra time to flip around and get “informed”, huh?

What’s goin’ on in America today?  Well sit back folks, we’re gonna try to give you the answer that ain’t gonna set that well…perhaps why it’s usually avoided?  Please keep in mind that this ain’t the first time homo sapiens have dealt with change – a bit different each time – doesn’t make it easier.

In America the number one form of Øchange is a democrat party seekin’/holdin’ on to the old ways of doin’ things even though many of us now do things in new ways.  2nd, large religious groups run mostly by men repeatedly doin’ things the old way – yeah, we know, that one ain’t gonna go over well with them.   History based ways of gettin’/not gettin’ things done – changed – fill the books – usually in “damagin’” ways.   Then we get to the tough aspect of what we are talking about – what does this “change” in so many ways mean for the many in various forms of power, delivery, financing?  Yes, we mean established governments and supporters historically rejectin’ change.   Our one word answer…


America has two political parties – one simply opposes most forms of basic change – the other a bit more welcomin’ of it for reasons that simply have to do with self independence; some historic awareness; some acceptance…and benefits.  Unfortunately, they also go along with DEBT because it doesn’t destroy immediately.

Change is a real stinker when it gets to our homes – our neighborhoods.  This old guy knows because he is livin’ in it; strugglin’ with it.   Many cities, counties and states; school districts, postal service, public transportation, highways and many other forms of governmental “needs” – are seldom open to change.   Folks we are livin’ it now – all around us – goin’ on 24/7.

So what the heck should I/we do to survive…along with our few needs including those who need us?   We've got one example – not working out very well; but they’re facing it – our founders flushed ‘em a while ago – Great Britain.   A few years ago, by a tiny narrow margin, their citizens said to the large group (EU) surrounding them – we’re gonna give this a run on our own.   They said – bye bye germany...us Brit’s learned a while ago we simply need to do a few things on our own; hopefully with a few good tough allies.

Folks we’re closing in on our 500 word limit – enough for this offering.   The change we are living in this minute ain’t gonna go away – many of us will vote to avoid it – and the other party that seems to want to deal with it?   It’s gonna be tough for them.  And for us, we the people, come November 3.  We’ll see…not lookin’ good folks.

“Free the Big Ten”

Well folks this fortunate not so young fella does not always agree much less support the coach of the football team from the university at which he did a few things over several years including gaining some real as well as college based education.

Nevertheless he sure agrees with the four words above…

“Free the Big Ten”….let's offer them a bit more impressively…

“Free the Big Ten”

Folks this getting’ old fella grew up in a time when the world faced some issues a tad more significant than overpaid football coaches – endless tv advertising in between the occasional play – and some of the really low iq nonanalytical POOPsters yappin’ in between the above.  But, college football sure beats the pants off overpaid nonproductive nincomPOOPs (435/100/9/1+++000,000’s) trying to buy our votes come early November.

Heck this guy would rather watch the buckeyes beat his wolverines (I really don’t mean that) and be encouraged to buy this or that over and over again each quarter…it's pretty basic (aka fundamental) here’s the article… https://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverines/2020/09/05/michigan-football-protest-big-ten-postponement/5730504002/

The fundamental reason we offer http://www.thefundamentals.us

Our simple basic fundamental reason – responsible Homo sapiens borrow money (debt) for good reasons and always repay debt on time in accord with the contractual obligation.  If they don’t repay debt it becomes DEBT – the Road to Bankruptcy.

Folks that’s as basic and simple – fundamental – as this one getting old American citizen since birth can state the reason.

He knows one or two things about this fundamental – one came from the brain…delivered via the mouth of one of the worlds fellas who had some ups and downs in real life – kinda like many of us guys.   This guy did one thing that even to this minute we write these words today is not only a basic fundamental it is exactly what American nincomPOOPs (435/100/9/1++++000,000’s more everywhere) don’t do.   He simply said he would borrow, find, get his hands on every penny of money available including borrowed money to kill the nazi POOPsters doing everything possible to kill British people.  And he said if the British didn’t survive – the hell with the DEBT – otherwise it would be repaid – every shilling of it.  The British people survived and the DEBT became debt and ended up at zero.

Folks a while back – about 240 years ago – our founders flushed the British king and his gang of nincomPOOPs.   The people of Great Britain to this minute have survived.   Ever ask yourself why…are we going to survive?

This old fella simply answers – our POOPs need to be flushed – DEBT needs to become debt and then zero. The fundamental reason we offer http://www.thefundamentals.us

Pls let us close with a simple suggestion – a fundamental based on the above words – don’t vote for anyone seeking more DEBT – only vote for one with a plan to make it debt…and then zero!

Good luck!!

Former GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain dies of COVID-19

Folks pls read -


We now simply share a few borrowed words about this good man...
 Born in the segregated South, his father worked three jobs as a janitor, barber and chauffeur, while his mother was a servant. He graduated from Morehouse College, a historically Black college for men in Atlanta, received a master’s degree from Purdue University and worked as a civilian mathematician in the U.S. Navy. 
The centerpiece of Cain’s presidential campaign was his 9-9-9 plan, which would have replaced the current tax code with a 9% tax on personal and corporate income and a 9% national sales tax. Cain said the plan’s simplicity would stimulate the economy by giving investors certainty.

“If 10% is good enough for God, 9% ought to be good enough for the federal government,” he told crowds. 

 Cain is survived by his wife, Gloria Etchison, their children and grandchildren.

Over and over, again and again (aka Hss)

Fundamentals are pretty basic – they simply don’t require much of anything except for a little bit of awareness coupled with equal dislike of the fundamental of repetitive Homo sapiens stupidity.   Put it this way – read a good factual history book or two and discover the repetitiveness of Homo sapiens stupidity (aka Hss).  We like to occasionally illustrate Hss as most all that has happened since a while ago a few of us figured out how to drop out of trees and get others to do things for us.  Oh, and one more thing, every once in a rare while a few will simply dispose of those who get others to do things for them.  We call those few – founders and fighters – mostly MIA today!

Now folks do you really think massive amounts of nonrepayable debt (DEBT) are the solution to our problems?  If you don’t know or are not sure of the answer…well ask your kids (if you have any.)  Even better, ask your grandkids (if you have any)…and that of course assumes that you chat with them about basics – i.e. fundamentals.  Do you?  We call fundamentals...things that matter.

Here is what we know – our media – our attorneys – our jocks – our hollywood nincomPOOPs – our 435/100/9++++000,000’s more in our local county and state forms of POOP gatherings are paid lots.  Was that always the case, huh?

Were our founders paid a lot?   Or were they mostly…VOLUNTEERS?   With real jobs?  Makin’/growin’/fixin/inventin’/healin’/etc ways of earning wages to be spent wisely?  Not overpaid nonproductive nincomPOOPs – do you know?

We ask you, what were our early founders/fighters serving as representatives and senators getting’ paid…do you know?   Pls tell us now…write the number(s) now:

Here is the answer:

When the Constitution was ratified, members of Congress were paid six dollars a day, and then only when they met.

This was not supposed to make you rich.

Here’s a few more Jack Lessenberry’s words offered at – https://www.michiganradio.org/post/founding-fathers-never-intended-permanent-political-class-controlled-wealthy

You can say what you want about this system, but you can’t say it does what it was intended to do – send normal citizens to Washington for a term or two.

Instead, we have a permanent political class, funded and controlled by competing pools of vast wealth.

“…send normal citizens to Washington for a term or two.”  With real jobs?  Pretty funny huh?   We the people – Hss.
