I must have my welfare check

Friends,

Sometimes you cannot make up what happens around you in life.

At a WalMart, a lady told the clerk and I that she needed her food stamps. And she was proud of that, “because I work and still need help. And I report everything I make.”

OK.

I did the math. She and two daughters get food stamp help. Here in Texas that is about $123/month. (See here).

Times that by 3 people. And divide by $10 per hour. And divide that by 4 weeks in a month. She would need to work at a second job about 9 hours a week to replace the benefits she felt she deserved.

Why doesn’t she feel her kids deserve her working to provide for them?

Why was she with her boyfriend, instead of working?

I really doubt he could not make up the difference. But, if he doesn’t have to make up the difference. And if she doesn’t report the boyfriend, because he is not her husband, then why shouldn’t he allow the government to support her?

Because it is bankrupting the country?

Because her daughters will have to pay for the benefits she took?

Welfare should be short term, no more than a year. And it should not be an enabler, nor should it become deserved.

And it should never be given to the Muslim immigrants that our country is bringing in and not talking about.

What do you think?

Who shot down MH17?

Friends,

Everyone has ‘theories’ about who shot down MH17 (Malaysian flight 17). But, how do I decide which theory to believe?

Would you like to read through my decision making process about the shooting down of MH17?

When the airliner was shot down, I originally thought like this:

Do Ukrainian forces have the assets (anti-aircraft missiles) in the area to shoot an airliner down?” I did not know, but I knew, Ukraine had not shot down any enemy aircraft.

But, I did know the rebels claimed they had shot down 7 Ukrainian aircraft over their territory.

As the story developed, reports surfaced of rebel leaders taking credit for the airliner. Then there were reports of rebel forces calling back to Russia.

And then TELS were moved back to Russia. (it has been awhile, but I think TELS stands for transporter, erector, launcher, system).

Then after a long pause, a pause of several days, Russia came out and claimed Ukraine shot down the airliner. Then Russia claimed they had intelligence. Russian sources began to deny previous reports one by one.

But, I noticed that the Russian reports all seemed to be in response to previous reports. Few Russian news stories seemed to be in response to the airliner being shot down, the reports seemed to be in response to ‘western sources.’

OK.

How do I analyze what I have read and heard?

If Ukraine had shot down the Malaysian airliner, I would have expected:

(1) Russian sources to release audio (voice intercept) of rebels being surprised that the Ukrainians had mistakenly, or intentionally, shot down an airliner. Even now, I do not think Russian sources have released audio showing the rebels were surprised by a Ukrainian missile launch.

(2) Ukrainian forces would have immediately secured the site and destroyed evidence. Rebel forces seized the site and destroyed evidence. That reads like rebels were responsible, not Ukrainian forces.

(3) Russian sources would have released satellite imagery of the shoot down. Instead Western sources (US) released the first imagery. Again, this points to the rebels not to the Ukrainians.

(4) Had the Ukrainians shot down the airliner, I would have expected the rebel forces to co-operate with western media, and Russian media. They co-operated with very few media. Very strange to pass up such a great media event if it is your favor.

(5) Had Ukraine been responsible, I would have expected a Russian incursion into the area to ‘rightfully’ secure the site.

That last point is a smoking gun. A big smoking gun. Russia seemed to pull back for a couple of days, not the actions of someone righteously angry.

All things considered, I believe rebels accidentally shot down the airliner. I think they used the ‘Buk’ Surface to Air system. And I think Russia pulled those systems back into Russia for at least a few weeks.

Will Russia invade? That is a different question for a different blog post.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I hope you do not enjoy what happened to civilians in this incident, and I hope you do not enjoy what is happening in Ukraine.

And I hope you will ask me good questions.

Russians love me

Friends,

This is strange. And it is not what I expected. But, I have had 1,000 views by Russians from Russia on my blog.

Either Russians now love me. Or, Russians hate me, but won’t tell me.

Or, Russian Intelligence services are reading my blog, because I give them a better insight than their intelligence gives them?

Who knows.

But, thank you. I take reading my blog as a compliment. You could be reading anyone’s blog, but you chose to read my blog.

Thank you all.

Spanish in Vienna

Friends,

I think I may be the only person to do this.

But, I stumbled into a Spanish meeting in the middle of Vienna.

After wandering around, speaking Japanese, Russian, and English. I stumbled into a restaurant’s non-smoking section. As I watched the soccer match from Brazil behind me, I noticed there were not vacant tables.

So, I began to think about leaving.

When an elegant lady asked me, “You don’t speak Spanish do you?” Since she asked me in Spanish, I answered in Spanish, “No, and do you?”

She turned to the table and started to say, “I told you he doesn’t speak Spanish,” when another person said, “He answered you in Spanish.”

At which point, the whole table was interested.

And so was I. Half a dozen to a dozen people speaking Spanish every Monday at 6 PM?

In Vienna?

What a pleasant surprise.

And I must cut this short, because my brain is exhausted. My brain kept trying to jump into Russian …. I am that tired.

God bless you,

Wayne

I am tired.

Friends,

If you would, please say a prayer for me.

The beast is killing me today. My left arm keeps going numb. And too many other parts to mention.

The only decent medicine is sleep – 20 hours a day for a couple days.

We’ll see if the beast lets me sleep.

Did I mention, beast is not letting me sleep well?

Thank you,

Wayne
PS for those who want to know why? The weather changed.

Pedophiles are evil

Friends,

How is it that tens of thousands of pedophiles are able to use encryption to hide from law authorities?

BBC Report.

Why do the progressives help the evil pedophiles hide?

Why don’t progressives protect children?

That is what I would do.

Wouldn’t you do that?

How do we repair US?

Friends,

I just saw comments on Lisa Bloom’s Facebook page.

I realize that 60 years of progressive victories against US have empowered liberals to believe they are in the right.

But, how do we repair the damage being done?

Can we repair the damage for awhile, before we continue the progressive experiment?

I live part time in Ukraine – I love it.

The ‘liberals’ here are seduced by Hollywood’s image. They love what they see on TV. They think it is great ‘entertainment.’

They refuse to believe that people in America are changing their morals to become like the TV shows they watch.

They truly believe it is just acting.

But, it is slowly changing their society. It is damaging family. It is changing morals here.

How do we accept the benefits of progressive socialism and reject the negatives from progressive socialism?

Why do the Elite think they can fix Islam?

Friends,

I posted the following over at CNN.

I disagreed with Pres Bush’s premise, “America can fix the ME.” Bad premise.

But, his methodology worked much better than the methodology of the current regime.

Under Bush the terrorists killed several million, maybe 2 million.

Under Obama? The toll has become catastrophic. Obama and his followers are responsible for more mayhem than Iddi Amin. Soon their numbers will exceed Adolf ….

Wayne

Why is it that our ‘elite’ keep getting US deeper into the next world war? Why don’t they see they are taking US into the final stages before Armageddon?

Are they really naive? Stupid? Arrogant? Or, just plain sociopathic? In other words, do they really not care about the mass murder they cause?

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you

Friends,

Why is it that outside of America, when you laugh other people just laugh with you. Why do so many people ‘want‘ to be happy.

Why don’t we ‘want‘ to be happy in the US?

Any ideas?

Gangs destroy US, guns defend US

Friends,

Lisa Bloom just got back from her vacation around the poor of Ethiopia. It made her feel good to be the Rich American visiting the poor. She even took time to visit Israel and feel good.

Why did she feel good?

She was surrounded by GUNS. Guns kept her SAFE. In the middle of the war-torn Middle East, she was surrounded by gun-toting youth. College age kids.

But, in America, she wants you and I to be stripped of our Protections, Freedoms, and Rights.

Why? She says guns kill, while she is protected by guns.

OK.

So, really, why? Because, I think she wants US to become victims of her progressive agenda.

60% of gun deaths are suicide. 80% of the ‘murders’ are gun battles by gangs.

I have blogged on this before. Here Here. And Here. And the result is simple: More of US are killed by water than by actual murder. And 2 million times each year, some of US are defended by using our guns.

Over TWO million each year. 20 Million this last decade. Over 100 million every fifty years.

Every fifty years, about 250 thousand of US are actually murdered by guns, almost that many murdered with knives and axes, and more than that are killed by drownings, and many more than that are killed by cars. And now, many more than that are killed by cell-phone using in-attentive drivers.

Under 0.0025% of the number of US protected by guns are murdered by guns.

Ban guns for the elite. Ban guns from the progressives. Ban guns around the president. Ban guns from the gangs. Ban guns from our enemies around the world.

Take guns from the police, who kill too many innocent bystanders, and too few murderous felons.

Stop the senseless drownings and slaughter by cars.

Make US safe. Make US feel safe.

And THEN talk to US about our Second Amendment being old and out of date.

Do you agree? Tell US.

Wayne

PS. If you really want to fix a problem for US, fix welfare. The plague that is destroying US. White, Black, and Economic Enslavement.
