As I See It

Columns of ‘numbers’, like this one, are hard to write and boring read. But, sometimes it’s worth the effort.

Since ‘Day-One’, President Trump has tried to cut foreign aid.

He told the UN General Assembly, “Moving forward, we are only going to give foreign aid to those who respect us and, frankly, are our friends.”

Unfortunately Congress (Democrats), who control federal funding, refuse stop the export of American Tax-Payers money to all kinds of foreign countries – Friend & Foe alike.

Did you know that, Congress gives away over $50 BILLION of Tax-Payers money by way of so-called ‘Foreign Aid’?

A concerned citizen might ask “Why?” Continue reading

Apparently, a Washington intelligence officer reported that President Trump talked to the leader of Ukraine about the business dealings of Former Democrat Vice President, Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Because of its conflicts with Russia, the Ukraine receives millions of American Tax-Dollars in aid.

Its interesting that VP Joe Biden is rumored to have stopped a corruption prosecution against a company that hired his son Hunter Biden.

By his own admission, VP Joe Biden made at least a dozen visits to Kyiv, Ukraine when he was in the White House.

Questions are being asked about his role in the dismissal of the country’s prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin back in 2016. Continue reading

The following is one persons and not necessary the opinion of this newspaper.

Did you know that you owe about $775,000 to China?

That’s your share of the USA National Debt!

Since the end of the Clinton Presidency, the U.S. government has spent a LOT more than they collected from the tax-payers.

The Federal Government owes Medicare, Social Security, Government Pensions and retiree health care liabilities and much more.

How much? Some sources say about $118 Trillion. Continue reading

Can you trust your favorite ‘Network News’?

Here’s a question! “When is the truth a lie?”

For months the media has been screaming about President Trump’s ‘Crackdown’ on ‘illegal aliens’

To me, ‘crackdown’ means an ‘increase’; That Trump is taking a harder line than did his predecessors; That Trump has ‘expelled’ millions of these ‘invaders’.

But, in fact, Trump has deported only a few thousand. Continue reading

Medicare For All ?

President Donald Trump says he has a better plan than any other – We’ll see !

In the meantime, ‘two-out-of-three’ Republicans don’t care if their fellow Americans have Health Care or not. They think that ‘Medicare-For-All’ is a non-starter.

They seem overlook the fact that, in America, almost no-one goes without. The uninsured can go to the emergency room and demand immediate attention or do without.

This, of course, is encouraged by the Medical Industry which rakes in $10,000, $20,000, $30,000 PER DAY for each Walk-In!

One survey reported that almost half of the respondents said that they are “financially burdened” by medical bills. Any employers health plan can cost about $20,000 dollars a year, with ruinous co payments and deductibles. Continue reading

The ‘Democrat Dozens’ are conspiring to ensure that President T.Rump is re-elected without (meaningful) opposition.

I know it’s boring to read a write-up about the Democrat candidates, but here goes anyway:-

Michael Bennet – from Colorado  has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Not much else known about him.

Joe Biden, 76 from Delaware Senate for decades. Has been accused of plagiarism, sexual harassment,

bullying Anita Hill when she accused now US Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. Continue reading

A wall or not a wall? That is (still) the question!

Another question is “Does a country, any country, have a ‘Right-To-Exist?”

Or you could ask, “Do the people of any country have a right to protect their way of life from invaders?”

The so-called ‘Indians’ of the Americas and the Caribbean had open, unprotected borders didn’t they? How did uncontrolled ‘immigration’ work out for them? They lost their land, they lost their culture, they lost their language.

Why? Because they were unable to protect themselves against ‘illegal invaders!

I heard a (legal USA immigrant) student from India on Public Radio claim that “Immigration is a Human Right.” Continue reading

It was the first day of April in Viola in Central Florida. A family from Canada had settled the area close to Lake Griffin. Viola was a small, but successful community of related family and a few close friends.

Arthur Monkton was not an educated man, but he was their respected leader. For whatever reason, he was also an avid diarist, who scratched down, just about every happening (hardy event) in the every-day life of that close-knit group. Fishing in the lake, he’d record the catch, however small. Going to the store, he’d write down what they bought and what it cost.

Arthur was not a ‘creative’ author – no ’embroidery’, no thoughts, no reflections, no opinions. Just “This is what happened today.”

So this entry seems out-of-place. Continue reading

Publishers note: I am sorry to say this is the first time that I can remember Tony Powell not doing his column. Tony is a perpetual motion machine / Energizer  Bunny. His column is enjoyed by many. He had to take time recharge. Hopefully he will be ready for next month’s column. I will put in something I think he would like to put in.


Let’s Talk Social Security Funds

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.
He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary. No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program. Now 7.62% on the first $128,400. + your employer’s contribution.

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year. No longer tax deductible. Continue reading

Q-“What is Brexit?

Q-“Who cares anyway?”

The ‘UK’ (United Kingdom) wants to leave Europe. They have ‘Great Britain’, the ‘United Kingdom’, the ‘British Isles’, ‘Britain’, England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales. It’s one big mess over there.

Combine ‘Britain’ and ‘Exit’ and you get ‘BREXIT”. A while back it was Greece’ and ‘GREXIT’. England voted about 53%. Wales 52% to leave.  But both Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay in.

The ruling British elite oppose Brexit and are behind all the controversy we see in the media. But ordinary people want to be free of European unelected dictators. It’s ‘States Rights’ European Style.

But previous ‘Exit’ votes across Europe have either been ignored or revised into total ineffectiveness. Fox News quoted, “It’s a long, dishonest tradition. They made the Danes vote again, they made the Irish vote twice, and the French and the Dutch they just ignored,” “Europe does not take no for an answer,” they said. Continue reading
