Politics, Politics, Politics

Seems as though two things I wrote about some time ago is coming true. I am not a prophet or a fortune teller, I just call it as I see it. There are times I am wrong but this time I called it right. The news of the day is about release of the first draft of the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion. This is an unusual case and it have not happened before. All Supreme Court decisions are kept in secrecy until the final ruling.

               My thoughts on the release of the document are that it is unlawful. Whether the release is illegal enough to go to court and the guilty person spend some time in jail is for the lawyers and courts to decide. I am not a lawyer. I am a clear minded person giving my opinion about a subject that does not affect me but effects members of my family and the populace as a whole.

               I do not understand how any man can make rules on a woman’s body. They say it is not about the body, but it is about the life of a child. I read a quip from a social media post that went something like this…tie a woman’s tubes and save one child but give one man a vasectomy and save many children. Many men have concerns about alimony and payment for children. The men make the children but don’t want to pay or care for them (nor does Congress). It is fact that people that want to do away with the Roe v Wade ruling are in the minority. Then there are those that are in the minority that are there because of their political party. That is a hell of a reason. This should not be political; it should be only between the woman and her doctor.

               I said that the new makeup of the Supreme Court will have bad repercussions and the new (one is not new) people lied during vetting. They are not worthy of being on the Supreme Court and their qualifications are suspect at best. They were put on the court to do the will of a political party. That is not a separation of the three parts of the federal government.

               When everything else is said and done there is the conflict-of-interest issue. In this case I will call it ‘bedroom whispers’. When a bed partner is a hard core whatever and is for or against a particular subject and the other person is a justice that is preparing to make an important ruling on that subject, the justice should recuse themselves. I never thought this justice should have been selected for the Supreme Court.  However, politics stood in the way of a more qualified, honest person.

               Politics have messed up quite a few things and it is not finished yet. I believe this is only the beginning. I have mentioned before that the book ‘The Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire’ shows what is happening here. All great nations have risen and fell and so will we. We are slowly on our way out and this fight at the Supreme Court, with its political influence, is only the beginning. I am afraid we cannot stop it.

Our Government Is In Shatters

I am a news addict. A little local news. A lot of national and world news. I know we should keep a close eye on our President and his associates, but I am tired of the shenanigans that seems to be their only bane. Every day there is something new that they are trying to do. Mostly it is something that they have tried before, but the court system throws it out. Then they will attempt to do it anyway, but in a slightly different way. This is getting to be very old and frustrating. When you look deeply into their past, family ties included, there is much more to be found, of which they brush off as normal or say there is nothing wrong with such actions.

I have written, in www.faithingodministries.net, about the children. How tainted thinking and actions can become a part of the gene pool. At the time, I did not think about the other members of the Trump family but reading about the sister, a federal judge being investigated, who immediately retired upon hearing about her being investigated, bought me back to my other blog. It seems that the entire family is tainted. How can this gene pool be like this? It’s in every family. It’s learned from a very early age. All animals learn this way, not only humans. They follow examples of other animals of their species. That is the only way they learn to act and survive. President Trump learned how to scheme and get away with all sorts of things, being taught by his father. All the children were taught this way, and, as it is always said, what is done in the dark will come into the light. It took a long time for the light to shine, but it is now shinning.

We, as a people, have a choice to make. Let things that we know is destructive to us to continue or put our foot down and attempt to get out of this mess. We can either put our head in a hole in the sand and say this will pass or deny this destruction of our democracy to continue. He can not do this if we stand firm and let him know that it is not okay.

He had two years of complete untethered domination when his party was in complete control. He could not deliver. What is the excuse now? Members of his party seems to be afraid and will not do what is right for the people although they were elected by the people to work for the people. They seem to work only for themselves and the President (the three branches of government be damned) and does not care for the people or why the Constitution was created nor what is in the Constitution. These Congress members say one thing to get elected but does something different when they get into office.

Most people say I am a democrat (because they think Black people are usually Democrats) but                            I say I am not for any party. I have voted for whom I think is the best choice and not for any party. The new members of Congress have a long hill to climb and they must fend off many adversaries along the way. Some are good people, some are so-so. I am happy to see they all want a better government than we have now. If they succeed, we have a long-time rebuilding. Our government is in shatters.

 

Go Straight To Jail

The normal individual would expect the court, whether federal or civil, to send a person straight to jail upon being found guilty of a crime. I have been in the federal court system as well as all the others. I have seen people released after a ‘not guilty’ verdict. I have seen others, upon being found guilty, being led out of court, being taken straight to jail.

There seem to be a pattern of influential people, or people that had power, getting slapped on the wrist, a sentence of a few days to a few months or very few years in jail. The light sentence can even be spent in the city jail or in a federal minimum custody prison. Then there is, as it is now with our government, months of freedom before reporting to jail. I know for sure that I couldn’t get anything close to any deal like that.

I have said many times, most of the time I am making a joke, the richer you are or the higher you are on the so-called food chain, the more likely there is not any jail time. Most of the time the crime will never go to court. Court is for the common person. A lot of jail time is for the common person. Going hand-in-hand is jail overcrowding.

In the penal system there are areas in the prison or jail that they call ‘private use’. This is where, I assume, prisoners with influence are held, not only for their protection, but because they are who they are. Just like I am who I am. I also do not think they would do well in ‘general population’. However, if I were to go to prison, I would not be considered for any special consideration.

Just about everyone in the present government administration have some type of criminal history attached to them, including the President. I can’t begin to name all the individuals involved nor the number of charges that is or could be against them. The President have many things against him at the federal and state level. If any case become a guilty verdict in court, their sentence will be delayed, time given to arrange their affairs before any jail time, then the minimum sentence that can be given.

If any ordinary person, accused of a crime, get indicted by a grand jury, being poor or by not having an influential status, will wait in jail until the grand jury speaks and await in jail until the trial (maybe they can make bail). When the verdict is given, the ordinary person will not be given time to arrange their affairs and go straight to jail. The President, concerning federal charges, probably will be pardoned. We will have to see what will happen with the state charges because he cannot be pardoned for those except by the governor of that state.

It would be wonderful for the rich and influential people get treated as does the normal people. That may be asking too much.
