Feel free to post or forward.
I’m posting this early, as I’m now working from home, and
have four interviews to do and write over the next three days.
The powers that all levels of government are assuming over
all our lives will not be relinquished when the crisis is over. Government
rarely relinquishes power, except to a revolution. Which often leads to a

Voting for a
socialist is like giving a loaded gun to an eight-year-old. It might turn out
okay, but you wouldn’t chance it.
elections is like predicting horse races. The favorite doesn’t always win.
theology is another man’s blasphemy. Muslim calls to outlaw blasphemy are calls
to outlaw blasphemy against Islam. And they consider everything about
Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism blasphemy. And to Christians, the
Qur’an is blasphemy. Should it be outlawed?
Every day is
a chance to help someone else and add to your store of happiness. Don’t
leftist ideology, Sweden not a socialist country. It’s a capitalist country
with a large social welfare system paid for by huge taxes on capitalist business
and working people, that are passed on to customers. That social welfare system
is why it is so attractive to people from the Middle East who believe that have

believe so fervently in their cause, that they lose any moral compass they had.
They will lie, steal, cheat, slander, defraud, destroy and even use violence
for the “Greater Good.” In the long run, they usually do their cause much more
harm than good.
did a survey of voters, asking if they were fervently for Bernie, or Biden, or
Trump. Then ask those who said yes, that if they were sure no one would know,
