CODE: If it’s not yours, don’t take it; if it’s not true, don’t say it; if it’s not right, don’t do it.

This might be old-fashioned to today’s world, although it still works! It could even decrease the need for more prisons. South Dakota ethics are some of the best in the U.S. (Be proud.) A handshake is still popular in the state.

Gail, couldn't agree more. But in today's "woke" society, the problem is you have democrats and socialists redefining what this means. "If it's not yours, don't take it", example, the liberals in California have given permission to shoplifters to steal up to $600 per day without ramification, just watch the videos of people walking out of stores with stolen merchandise, they are not stopped, arrested, or anything, they just take it, liberal policies make this ok. "If it's not true, don't say it". The democrats are famous for walking back lies that they have been caught in, even now though, they don't care, they will lie and are not afraid of getting caught, Jen Psaki covers for Joe Biden's lies on a daily basis, example democrats, $3.5 trillion dollars = $0 dollars, the biggest lie to date and the truth watchers, Facebook, MSNBC, CNN, the democrats, they are the only ones allowed to tell you what the truth is, if they don't say it is true, it isn't, and they aren't even afraid to say they are doing it. "If it's not right, don't do it". Where do I start, all the democrats know so not going to explain, the right thing to do is redefined on a daily basis by the left and their media cohorts. Your letter is a nice thought Gail, unfortunately as a country we are way past living by that code, the left and socialists have redefined that code, the hard part is knowing from day to day what that code is as it gets changed so often by them.

Here comes another lie democrats, from a reliable news source, I couldn't find it on MSNBC's website for some strange reason, still talking about Trump, here is what a constitutional attorney Jon Turley says about a new report that has Hunter Biden and Joe Biden using combined bank accounts, just read what Jon has to say about this. "With these disclosures, we have accounts being used to pay both Hunter and Joe Biden and money being reimbursed to Hunter Biden from an individual associated with a company called Rosemont Seneca. Now that’s a company that has been tied to payments from China and Russia. And so this is getting more and more serious. The question is why the Justice Department hasn’t considered the appointment of a special counsel. We know there's a criminal investigation into the tax issues, possible money laundering. But there are also serious questions about whether the Biden family conducted an extensive influence-peddling operation involving not just Hunter but his uncle and potentially the president of the United States." The reason the justice department doesn't look into this is because they are too busy looking into domestic terrorists called parents. Jen Psaki will get asked about this and will only lie through her teeth, this is going to be today's big Joe Biden lie, the code gets adjusted again by the democrats.

Let's see how Joe and Jen spin (lie) about the news on the inflation rate being higher than at anytime in the last 13 years. If you haven't noticed, consumer prices are going up, everything is going up, Joe and Jen will blame Covid and Trump, cover things with today's lies, but MSNBC and CNN, the owners of truth are still talking about Jan. 6th.

VoiceforAll

Headline, Nancy Pelosi blames media for failed $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill failure. again, not taking ownership of something, just looking to blame, falls right in line with all the democrats. Gas prices hit a seven year high, thanks to liberal policies that have all but shut down domestic oil production. Walgreens closes 5 more stores in San Francisco due to rampant theft, San Francisco, a liberal run city with liberal policies making it easy for people to steal and not be held accountable, but if you are a parent fighting against the vaccine or mask mandate in that city Joe Biden's DOJ would be checking into you but they will leave the thieves alone. 44 people shot in Chicago this weekend, liberal city with liberal policies, the democrats, owners of the defund the police movement are crying why there is so much violence in our cities, no consequences for these shootings, not enough police to help out, but liberals want less and less police, it just doesn't add up, but it shouldn't to a democrat that thinks $3.5 trillion equals $0.

No matter the subject, Voice replies,

“Liberals are evil and such bad guys!”

He completely ignores the thoughts on the table,

and angrily writes as much as he’s able.

Not sure who he thinks he’s trying to lobby,

but he keeps off the streets with his favorite hobby.

Friedrich Farmer

Voice, since you’ve taken this opportunity to expound extemporaneously without regard for Ms. Sohler’s topical theme, I’ll take this occasion to ask if you agree with Mr. Trump's recent declaration that Republicans should:

“Sit out the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election if the “fraud” isn't "solved.”

Seems like a great idea to me.

Especially since they’ll never “solve” a problem that never existed.

Trump is the progressives’ gift that keeps on giving. And liberals who compare Trump to H*tler give him way too much credit.

H*tler was smart. How scr*wed we’d be if Trump weren’t a “F*cking moron.” (To borrow that memorable phrase from his first Former Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson.)

How lucky we are that a loser amateur has shown us how weak our democracy is in the hands of a mob boss.

VoiceforAll

It's ironic that poor Gimmy is crying foul on being called evil and bad, I am just taking a play from the long held playbook of the democrats. Democrats for decades have called republicans the enemy, remember when they ran around saying how we wanted old people to just die, and now we are murderers for standing up against a mandated vaccine. Poor Gimmy, don't like being treated like you have treated republicans for years? Yep, I write a lot because there is a lot to write about, and today's lie, Biden's chief of staff says there is no supply chain crisis nor is there any worry of inflation, it is comical that they think American's are buying their lies anymore, anyone that purchases anything in this country is seeing supply chain problems and rising prices, so who do they think they are fooling. Sorry for hurting your feelings Gimmy, I know it is tough for you to watch your great president ruin our country, keep up the poems, you are making a difference, you just need to bring Trump and Jan. 6th back into your poems, because that's what people really want to talk about nowadays.

Gimmy A. Breake

Voice is convinced by the “facts” that he spews.

But historians don’t work for his favorite FoxNews.

Already they’re writing how the Russians found

a useful idiot in the White House compound.

He botched the fight with Covid - his singular achievement

leaving millions to mourn in futile aggrievement.

Attacking the Congress - his crowning foul deed

Leaves a fractured democracy slowly to bleed

while his minions distort our electoral process.

They always will win the Senate and Congress.

We’ve seen this before. It’s not really rare -

years of Jim Crow for those colored - not fair.

But those who can’t vote now are truly diverse.

Some White folks discover a new universe.

Especially the young will now be included

with the Black, Brown and Yellow whose votes are excluded.

It may take awhile, through fair and foul weather

but there's nothing like pressure to bring us together.

VoiceforAll

Gimmy, poem away all you want, you say nothing with substance, information or even close to facts, but they are cute albeit boring, but the fact is your president is ruining this country, heck, even some in the liberal news organizations are starting to question some of his policies, that is the first block from your wall that is being pulled away and it will soon all start crumbling, it's going to be every man and woman for themselves because Joe provides and means nothing to any of them once the heat starts getting applied, he is a huge liability now and you all know it. And now Biden's AG has a tie to the company that is promoting CRT, all the while the AG promotes it and says how it needs to be implemented, yet another conflict of interest from Joe and his team, one in a long list now. Every single day, there is something new with these people, every day another problem, just can't see how Jen and the rest of you can keep up with the cover ups, oh that's right, don't talk about them and deny them and blame them on everyone else, that works, doesn't it.

Mr. T

So, VoiceforAll, will you follow Trump’s strategy to “sit out the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election if the fraud isn't solved”?

This is what Trump is threatening. Are you prepared to go along with his plan?

Mr. T

The first question I should have asked was if you - like most Trump supporters - believe the election was stolen.

I guess that comes before you decide if you’ll bother to vote “if the fraud isn't solved.” Doesn’t it?

VoiceforAll

Mr T., it's remarkable to most that whenever a democrat wins an election you are all "nothing to see here, just move on about your day", but the second a republican wins it turns into election fraud, there must be something wrong with the system, Hillary Clinton is famous for saying this on every news show she could be on, even when George Bush won it was all about the hanging chads, you democrats talked about that for years, but when Clinton, Obama and Biden won, not a single question is raised by anyone. And now when the republicans ask for audits to be done, the democrats throw hundreds of lawyers out to each state that is being questioned and fight tooth and nail to stop them, if there is nothing to see here, what's the worry, why the big fight. You people claim Trump won because of Russian interference, and that has been debunked and now the tables are turning where it looks like old Joe and his cohorts are the ones buddying up to the Russians and Chinese and now the Taliban for some reason, but better keep that buried too, your liberal media is good at that. Democrats are so full of double standards it is ridiculous. Nothing to see, no voter fraud when Joe gets elected, reverse every policy Trump passed that made America stronger and the country goes to heck in a 8 months, or hasn't anyone noticed? And now your great president refuses to take questions from the media, he stands out on his stage, this phony looking white house that is befitting of him, makes a few fumbling remarks, and turns his back on America, time after time, the last three times he has "addressed" American, he turns and shuffles away why the press shout questions to him, you don't think people are seeing this? He is not a leader, quit talking about Trump, no one cares anymore, the country is suffering and it isn't Trump's fault, the democrats are in charge, not Trump, your party can fix this but they refuse, they want a welfare state for some reason, and with Joe and the democrats in charge, that is what we are becoming.

VoiceforAll

The delusions continue, Jen Psaki doesn't think the American people don't compare todays prices to those of past years, this is what she said. How can anyone stand in front of the American people and say things like this, especially a presidents press secretary. They lie so often that they believe it themselves. Isn't that what people do, we compare prices on everything we purchase, that is how we know things cost more or less. The democrats are so convinced American's will believe their words over what American's are actually doing and going through. I have said it before and I will say it again, this is insane what they are doing.

VOICE for VoiceforAll

So many Trumpsters suffer from “January 6th Amnesia.”

This affliction has struck three of our most high profile Republicans:

House GOP Leader KEVIN McCARTHY:

“The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding."

Senate Minority leader, MITCH McCONNELL:

"There's no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president,"

South Carolina Senator LINDSEY GRAHAM:

“Count me out. Enough is enough. I hoped he [Biden] lost. I prayed he would lose. He won. He's the legitimate president of the United States."

Now the “profiles in courage” who spoke these brave words grovel before their Dear Leader in humiliating subservience.

Like so many of the long-winded Trumpsters who pontificate on this feed with their angry catalogs of Democrats’ wrong-doing, these hypocrites have forgotten all about the most serious threat to our Democracy since the Civil War.

Mr. Voice, you write “they [the Democrats] want a welfare state for some reason.”

But, Mr. Voice, South Dakota already IS a welfare state. A staunch REPUBLICAN welfare state at that. Didn’t you know? Don’t you live around here?

We always receive more in federal dollars than we pay into Federal coffers in taxes. In fact we’re among the top five “welfare states.”

Google “Forbes blue state bail out.”

According to Forbes, Red State residents received the largest stimulus checks last time around and will again this time.

Yours is a heartfelt plea, Mr. Voice, but it’s also woefully incorrect. You’re just repeating a favorite “conservative” talking point. And in light of the true dollar figures, it makes conservatives’ outrage seem a little silly.

Like the Clown always says: “It’s only socialism when money goes to people you don’t like.”

Jolly Roger

Hey Voice, it looks like your folks are ALSO having a hard time forgetting Jan. 6.

Trump, Bannon and the boys gave their Pledge of Allegiance to an insurrection flag.

There's nothing like saying the quiet part out loud.

My invitation to the 'Take Back Virginia' rally featuring Donald Trump & Steve Bannon apparently got lost in Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s new Trumpsterized US Postal system.

I was so disappointed at missing out on the opportunity to pledge allegiance to their Flag of Insurrection that I was inspired to write the first phrases of a patriotic song I hope to someday set to music.

I tried setting it to the Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil,“ but it didn’t quite fit.

There must be an unused Irish drinking Song somewhere that got overlooked by Francis Scott Key.

Anyway, Voice, if you can carry a tune, help me out here with these words:

Gimmy A. Breake

BATTLE HYMN OF THE MONARCHY

I pledge allegiance to the flag so proudly hoisted higher

by patriots who stormed our Halls led forth by their Chief Liar.

No empty symbol is this flag, I’ll never let it drop.

It comes in mighty handy when I have to beat a cop.

QgopFromnowon

Mr. VoiceforAll, you never answered Freidrich Farmer when he asked if you agree with Mr. Trump that you should sit out the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election if the fraud isn't solved.

I’ve been suspecting for a while that your enormous output on various other topics is your obvious attempt to hide that you’re really one of the RINOS.

As our TRUE President makes perfectly clear, the stolen election is the number one issue that should unite us all.

But you won’t take a stand in support of President Trump. You just complain about all the lesser things the Democrats have done. Typical RINO smokescreen.

Tell us you know the election was stolen, and you won’t vote unless the fraud is solved.

If you refuse, I guess that makes you a RINO traitor, doesn’t it?
