What Rights Are You Born With?

Our forefathers and mothers designed laws to help hold this great nation together. When you are born in America you are entitled to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! Our men and women fought and some died to ensure yours and my liberty. When you break our laws then you are punished, but you are innocent until proven guilty. Actually when you are born anywhere else of this world you should have Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness but some countries have different beliefs or laws. Remember nothing is free, you must earn what you get! NO free tuition, NO free healthcare, NO free abortions, NO free housing, etc. The Socialists are wrong! Because of our fast pace mobile world, millionaires can move anywhere in the world and there many places that will not tax them for most of their money to feed, house, abort, pay doctors with the money they have earned. Remember with Socialism the wealthy pay but the politicians don’t! The wealthy move and taxing goes on until there is nothing left except Government control. Anyone that preaches Socialism knows that!

Assaulting People / Police Officers

Our country has laws that we have to abide by. Without law and order we have chaos. People are not safe when there is chaos. Some people are of the nature of taking things too far, like throwing water on police officers.  Next thing you know it won’t be just water. Throwing water at or on anyone against their will is civil assault. Throwing anything at a police officer should be a federal offense with a mandatory sentence, and if there is video proof, it should be immediate! No overnight bail or anything that would delay the sentence. Hard jail time NOW. That would make these lawless acts stop.

Fear of Military Action

In our world we have conflict and we have peace. The world is like a neighborhood where you get along with some of your neighbors and some you don’t. Again, in our fast pace mobile world you can move fairly easy. But mostly we get along. In a neighborhood you have to forgive and forget, just like in family life, kind of go with the flow. The Villages is an interesting place to put that to the test. You have people from every geographic area of the country and even some from other countries, each trying to have fun doing mature activities. It’s when they act immature where the trouble begins. The trouble comes in many forms: who tees off first; the people ahead are golfing too slow; the golf cart cut me off on the road; someone is displaying our flag wrong; etc. etc. etc.

Learn To Be Patient

My problem is I don’t wait well. When you go into a doctor’s office for an appointment and the doctor is in, you should not have to wait more than 15 minutes. If the doctor had an emergency, reschedule. Some people will sit for hours. That happened to me 5 years ago. I waited two hours for the doctor to see me. Then I told him  off. “First what makes you think that your time is more important than mine?”  “I have missed a scheduled meeting because I was sitting in your office waiting for you!” I said “what do you have to say for yourself?” You’re here now. The doctor was mad, his hands were shaking, no one talks to him like that. He wanted to give me a shot. I said I’m done with you! Got up and walked out. No need for people sitting and waiting. It is a waste of their time.

Civil War

I suggest you read Dr. Jack Devere Minzey. He was the Department Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University and author. He has since past away. I will attempt to pull a few paragraphs out of his last article to show that he thought we were headed for a Civil War. (Paragraph from Dr. Minzey’s article)

“How do Civil Wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

Past President (Paragraph from Dr. Minzey’s article)

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. He can use the IRS as his own police force and imprison citizens who speak against him. He can provide guns and money (Fast and Furious) (Iran nuclear deal) to other countries to support his own agenda, and watch while one of America’s Ambassador’s is dragged through the streets and murdered doing nothing to aid our citizens. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has ‘discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.

Publishers Note about Civil War.

We are on the brink of a Civil War. All indicators are visible. Our country has made more progress in the last three years than in the history of this country. This country survives because we have the rule of law. Socialism is on the rise in our country. IT DOES NOT WORK! It’s a trick to take control of the country. Don’t fall for it! Get out and vote. Get out and support your candidate. Be visible and show who you stand for. Do not be violent! If someone comes to you in a violent manor, press charges without hate. They broke the law and must be punished! Matter of fact!

I will stand with the elected President of the United States. Guess what? In year 2020 I will stand with the elected President. If I don’t like him I will vote accordingly. We must follow our constitution; it is the letter of the law! I personally believe that Trump is the only person that can clean up the corruption in our country. His job is not done, re-elect him!

Note from Bud in the Villages

Last month I had a Lady in the Villages send me a letter complaining about pedestrians in multi-path right of away used by Golf Carts. Here is what one reader says…

Hi Tom,

Hey, Hey, get outta my way !!!   We got ’em in the Villages.

Glad to see you pointed out that pedestrians have the right of way on multi paths.

Ocala Florida

For a number of years I have been asked why I don’t have newspapers in the lobby of the Tax Collector’s office. Everybody else does but you. So two months ago I asked permission and put a wire rack in. This month I went to put August papers in it and it has disappeared. If anyone knows what happen to it call 804-1223. That is called restraint of trade. Actually while I’m at it, these big giant online businesses that are taking down people’s posting is RESTRAINT OF TRADE if it pertains to their business!  The FCC needs to get more involved.

TomL said that!
