WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?

first aid

I have a reasonable supply of first aid on hand in case of emergency.  If a couple kids fall out of tree and scratch their knees, no problem.  If twenty kids fall out at the same time, I’m probably going to need to send for extra ASAP.  With that in mind I am considering politics.

President Trump has received a lot of criticism for not having masks, gloves, ventilators, etc,  available for this covid crises.  Who used them up and left the shelves bare?  Why didn’t Obama leave enough for an emergency?  Shouldn’t President Trump keep enough available for the next crises, whether he is still in office or if someone else is?  If there is another flu outbreak next year and Joe Biden is president does he order the supplies?  Or will it be President Trump’s fault that they aren’t stocked?  Who decided how much might be needed?  Do the taxpayerx want to pay for the ultimate possibility of emergency needs?  We now have many unused respirators.  Should we buy more because the next pandemic might be worse?  Or what if the next pandemic doesn’t need respirators; it demands equipment for blood transfusions and the money was spent on respirators?  Is this criticism of President Trump fair?

Just asking.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    The criticism against President Trump has not been fair.

    People on the left are more concerned about being rid of the president than they are at looking at the mental health of Joe Biden. We know that IF he were elected he’d be forced out of office for incompetence and another one like B.O. (Harris) would be put in his place.

    I could say a lot more about what I think, and how the people of this country have to prepare for the coming chaos, but you probably already know this.

      I’m sure we agree on a lot of issues regarding this subject – President Trump. He is amazing amidst the barrage against him. He is the object of much prayer, so I don’t short the Lord’s hand in all this stuff. Takes a special kind to have exposed all the filth in the swamp. Now I just hope he will be able to stay long enough for some to have to pay for their evil deeds.

    Excellent questions! J.

      Thanks, IB, for the response. I’d like your take on how smart people can ignore logic so completely as we see going on. Burn down the building because insurance will pay for it with never a thought as to who pays insurance. Same thing with stealing is okay because the government will help them out without thought of who is supporting government! Oh, I almost got to going again. 😀

      • I wish I had those answers, Oneta! There’s a video clip of some “defund the cops” protestors, when this man comes around the corner revving up a chainsaw. They drop their signs, run, and start yelling, “call the cops!” It is so illogical, it just made me laugh. I honestly believe many people are so used to living in America, they now take things for granted and half the time they have no idea what they are even suggesting. One problem is that we now have people in leadership doing these crazy things. Kids on the streets are one thing, but when your elected leaders act just as immature and foolish, we got some issues. In spite of all the crazy we’re seeing right now, I think it’s all going to work itself out.

    Excellent questions. We from far away have been ASTONISHED by what politically and spiritually was and is occurring in your country. From insanity over toilet rolls which became endemic over here as well. Unjustified attacks on police, paramedics and political insanities we are all travelling the same road. Why? I believe LIGHT has been sucked out of our societies…….Ot attempts are being made to do so, Light – Darkness where to we look and take our stand?. I feel concerned for President Trump I hope He has strong Spititual backing.

    • oneta hayes says:

      There is no explaining what is going on except acknowledging spiritual influences. And how it can apparently stem from the universities is amazing. God is in control. Bad news is that he often lets man go to the depth of the pits before they cry out to him. Sadly some never do.

  5. in a word…NO—it is not fair.
    Nothing regarding this sitting president has been fair…not fair by the minds of any of his predecessors…because Trump seems to the the whipping boy for all past and even future presidencies.
    But “whipping boy” is probably a term deemed out of sync and racist.
    But it is a term I’ve read and known throughout my life.
    So maybe my life is out of sync.

    It is easy for those in charge to cast blame on to those who came before.
    Trump is not free of this conundrum but I find his accusations to be pretty much on the money.

    I remember when Clinton’s staff was vacating the White House before “W” took over…
    the Clinton staff removed all the “W” keys from all the computers.

    Childishness seems to be the name of the game

    • oneta hayes says:

      I think he is disliked by former presidents largely because he is proving that he can do what they could not, or would not even try. He loves his country more than himself or he would be riding pretty on money he made himself instead of through government or presidential side effects. At least the Clintons and Obamas would have nothing except for presidential benefits. I guess the Bushes made their own money. At least most of it. Oh, well. There’s a new day coming. Good night, Julie. Have a blessed Sunday.

    My Cuppycake & I watched the movie Lincoln (again) last evening. Boy! Some things never seem to change. DC has been a swamp for a veryyyyyyy long time. Prayers for DJT, that he may continue to drain its inhabitants, for another four years. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
