The Honor System

I was recently talking with a friend who relayed to me that a couple people they knew had actually had checks that they wrote and mailed to pay bills had been stolen out of US Post Office mailing boxes, washed, and rewritten to allow them to steal funds out of these persons bank accounts.

We all know things have gotten bad, but maybe some of us are not focused on the exact mechanism of why things have gotten so bad.  Or maybe just me.  But here is what my epiphany was for what to write about it when I heard this.

America has been on the honor system.  Most of you can probably stop reading now as this one sentence probably tells you all you need to know to appreciate this post.

America has been on the honor system,

People have not been out stealing US mail from people's mail boxes, let alone US post office drop boxes for the many decades the US postal system has been in place.  Now, imagine how easy it is to just drive around, looking for red flags on mail boxes, open the thing up, take the mail, throw anything away that doesn't look like a check is being mailed and jam on down the road.

Combine that with the fact, that this country has not only been massively breeding such vermin, we have also been importing them.  Well, the democrat party has been breeding them and importing them.  This is how they gain political advantage.  By building their loser voting base.

Anyway, Now in America, a country that was massively populated with people who respected their neighbors, we are becoming massively populated with alien and criminal vermin who see no problem with stuffing their pockets in anyway they can dream up.  Steal the mail. Steal your identity, Hack your devices, Hack the stores you shop at that hold valuable information about you. 

And it's not only the vermin who are breeding here, it is vermin all over the world who now have access to you because of the Internet.

This country is so not ready for the vermin onslaught it is stunning.


One last time though, the main point being that I grew up in an America that was on the honor system.  It no longer is, and I believe we are in the infancy of finding out what the effects of this are going to be.  Well, it isn't going to be good, and it is not going to work in the favor of people who respect laws and other people.  I'll now leave you to your own visions of how that is going to manifest.

  2. I might as well admit that "friend" of Kid's is ME. My mother had this happen and a friend in my own condominium building had it happen. .... out of LOCKED mailboxes....US POST MAIL BOXES...so it's absolutely THE POSTAL WORKERS who are now stealing...and they were in very different parts of this city, not just some rogue bunch in one area.
    I agree, Kid...we had an honor system; we knew mail was safe, we knew people cared enough to put America first...this is a whole other America. This is really sad.
    It shakes you at your core; this was something we could depend on in the past. Not anymore.

  3. Z - Yes, it has always been dangerous out there, but it is a totally different dimension. For those worried, as I posted a while ago, Look into Credit Freeze and Two Factor Authentication.

    1. Nice addition Ed. I do think the American Experiment is over. I was about to post it tonight actually, but I'll wait until Nov 5, 2016.

  5. Yes, our honor system is falling apart when we allow scum into our country who have no honor. And when we allow urban populations to breed like rats and spread their dishonorable progeny to prey on the trusting public.

    Things are changing, that's for sure. A trusting public used to put candy into kid's Halloween bags, and parents would not have to screen the take for razor blades. A trusting public used to allow kids to go out and play in the summer on their bikes without worrying that some miscreant pervert would strike. That's what always seems to happen to honor systems. The dishonorable screw them up. Every time.

    1. Exactly Fredd. We could both write novels about this but people will either understand it or not.

      And We did those things you talked about. 8 years old. Gone All Day, back for dinner.

    2. Oh, yeah. And mom would get quite cross if you came back and bothered her before dinner. "Get back out there and get some exercise, Kiddie. It's good for you." Rain or shine, you better be out of the house.

      When did those days end, Kid? Seems like it happened all of a sudden.

  7. The first time in human civilization when we live side by side with each other, yet have no idea who those people even are. The word 'neighbor' no longer means what Mister Rogers meant by it.

    1. DaBlade, Although I'm fortune enough to live in a neighborhood where all of the neighbors adjoining and across (no one close enough behind us) from our property truly are neighbors, I suspect this is a pretty rare case in urban areas.

      Now people's neighbors might be moslem vermin, dipxticks, dickwads, hackers, child porn addicted vermin, pedophiles, sexual predators who are on the list (Ever checked your neighborhood for that - damn they all over the place) sexual predators that aren't on the list yet, and even democrats. It's enough to entice me to get some more guns.

  8. It wasn't so long ago that a person's word was his bond. That's not true anymore for way too many Americans.

    We've lost something precious, and it ain't coming back anytime soon.

    Deceit and thuggery now rule the day. As a result, .our lives are blighted.

    2. It does seem that way, doesn't it? But we must keep a better sense of perspective. What we dislike and fear by no means afflicts the majority.

      The best way to combat evil is to make absolutely sure you don't ever let yourself become part of it.

      As usual Jesus Christ said it best:

      "Be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good."

      My personal opinion is this: The more we dwell on negatives, the more we are apt to become enthralled and held captive by negatives.

    3. FT, Well, I have been saying for a while that one must be aware of what is going on but only dwell on what actually gets in your face and have a rootin tootin good time in the meantime.

    1. Few understand that the "armour" must be metaphysical in nature. We protect ourselves –– and each other –– through prayer and the constant refining of our conscious ness and the renewing of our minds, thus "letting our light so shine before men that that may see our good works and glorify Our father which is in heaven."

    2. Carol, I have no more intention of turning any cheeks. And the losers will get nothing from me willingly anymore either. I drive out and see some sigh "The Hunger 5K" and I laugh hysterically. I'm going to walk or run 5K to feed some slug sitting on their ass. Even if they're in a wheelchair, they can move that thing 50 feet and earn their own food.

      I haven't heard a single black person condemning random attacks by black people on random white people, so screw them all.
      I haven't seen or heard a single moslem screaming at thier brothers to stop the violence, so screw them all.
      etc.

      The losers get an incredible over-abundance of sympathy and free stuff from the idiots imo.

  10. I think a little Klingon honor, infused into our current system, would be a good thing.

    1. Cube, How about a lot of Cosa Nostra action(The Mafia which was created to battle the moslem vermin moving into Sicily) would be a good thing too.
