Bazzo Says: Not accepting the premise

Pointless question
 

The newest media re-write template to Republican presidential candidates starts with: “If you knew then what you know now, would you have...(fill in the blank)?”
 

The premise is that each Republican is wrong and the goal is to get them to admit it. Almost to prove who is the dumbest candidate, they actually try to answer that kind of question. 

Here is the problem. In politics as in life, one should never beat themselves up for not knowing something at the time a decision had to be made. How many times have you said or heard someone say, “If I only knew at the time what I know now…” How dumb is that? You did not know, that is the point. Stop beating yourself up, stop beating politicians up over a false premise because it is a waste of time. There is no right answer because as was once written, “Even God cannot change the past.”
 

Latest Amtrak crash
 

While rescuers were still looking for the dead and injured, pandering politicians, mainly Democrats, were pointing the finger at Republicans saying this crash happened because the Republicans cut funding to Amtrak. Not only was and is that not true, but I would personally give the finger to any politician saying such nonsense.
 

Fact is, as far as funding goes, no agency gets less money. What are referred to as “cuts” is not bottom-line money, but rate of growth. An agency asks for so much money, more than the last funding they received, and are given less then asked, but more than the last funding. That agency, along with a complicit media, will run around screaming about how its precious budget was cut. According to Congressman Maloney’s office, Congress appropriated $1.39 billion to Amtrak last year.
 

Fact is that the latest technology that would stop an out-of-control speeding is already there and has been installed. The problem is that it just hasn’t been turned on. The safety equipment and the installation and turning it on has been held up because it’s so complex, they—specifically the FCC, who has to release more bandwidth for the GPS system in this braking system to work—can’t figure out how to make it work. 
 

I have a feeling if this were the private sector those switches would have been turned on by now.
 

Fact is, that the $700 billion stimulus bill passed in 2009, about which we were told would go to shovel ready jobs and infrastructure, did not go there. In fact, only $9 billion went to what we were told it would go to. As I have written, the rest went to the states to shore up their public pension commitments and keep the works in public sector unions employed. 

No, what caused the Amtrak crash was human error. An engineer, for whatever reason, had the train going 106 mph in a 50 mph zone.
 

You cannot win for losing
 

Recent National Journal headline: “Why some male members of Congress will not be alone with female staffers.” This intrigued me, as I was anxious to know why.
 

With all the media attention to workplace sexual abuse, real and imagined, it seems some congressmen are choosing not to be alone with their female staffers because even if nothing happens, all she has to do is say something happened, and the leftists will run to support the accuser, no questions asked.
 

We have seen this happen time and time again, but get this: Due to the information above, a group female staffers is preparing to file discrimination claims against these men for being frozen out of powerful discussions. So, what we have is a lose-lose situation. If these congressmen don’t put themselves in a situation to be charged with sexual harassment they’re going be sued for discrimination. Only in modern-day America.
 

This is what I say. What say you
