The issue of reparations, nobody living was directly impacted by slavery in the south. Our parents were not impacted and neither were their parents. So How can bankrupting our country be justified? In today’s society you can find slavery all over the world. There are actually more white slaves than black slaves and most of them are either children or women. They are being enslaved for the sex trade. If anybody needs help it is these individuals. Just saying.

Anybody following politics in California had to have known that Gavin Newsom would not be unseated. While he probably the worse governor in our 50 states, he is substantially smarter than New York’s Cuomo. How much money and time was wasted? So now one of three things can happen; 1. no change. 2. he punishes everybody and makes the lockdowns even worse. 3. He realizes how close he came to loosing his job and makes things a little better.

Funny I thought it was the job of the military to protect our people and to kick anybody’s ass who threatens us or our borders? If I am not mistaken it is not their job to avoid conflict, that is the job of the politician. So where does Milley get off saying that he was trying to prevent a conflict with China. It seems to me that he was divulging state secrets to the enemy. Does anybody think of China as our ally?

This is for any of you who are farmers or who own livestock, My wife and I just finished watching a movie entitled “The Stand at Paxton County.” We found it quite illuminating and disturbing.. Please make sure you watch it. It is based on true events. Apparently there has been movements in many of our western states, one being North Dakota by the Humane Society to get Measure 5 passed. It basically gives the state the right to confiscate part or all of your livestock if it is found out that you have been negligent in your care of them. Apparently the language is so vague that it pretty much gives them carte blanche to do what they want. If the charges are serious enough the livestock owners could serve jail time. The family that the story was based on finally ended up winning in court, but it was close. I plan on writing an article on it in my blog in the next week or so. This is just one more example of our government overstepping its mandate.

According to the newest count on deaths, in this coronavirus pandemic it is now considered to be more deadly than the Spanish flu in 1918. While it may be true that more people have died, we had a lot less people living in the United States in 1918. Population in 1918 was 105 million, population in 2021 is 330 million. So the percentages are certainly not the same. I know this is no consolation to the families that have lost loved ones.

REALITY CHECK -This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. A home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On our small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. In case you were thinking of buying hybrid or an electric car…Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of those things has never been discussed. All you ever heard was the mpg in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it. At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro Executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious. If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On our small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded. This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So, as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This later “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead end road that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS…!’ and a shrug. If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening. Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors and he writes, “For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.” Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph. According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 Mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car costs about $25,000 while the Volt costs $46,000 plus. So the Government wants us to pay twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country. WAKE UP NORTH AMERICA!!!!!!!….copied from John Koth

What do you think of the federal government forcing their employees to get vaccinated or get fired? I hope they get sued. Unless it was part of their contract when they got hired, they can’t be forced to get it. They are also not giving people credit for natural Immunity. So unless they are using it as an excuse to trim some fat out of the federal government, which I seriously doubt, I can’t see the reason for it.

So now the government wants us to pay taxes on our possessions, ie property and houses if they go up in value. Since real-estate is liquid, meaning prices go up and down, are they going to refund me the money I paid in taxes if the market drops and houses go down in price? The hell you say? It has happened twice in the last 25 years. This is just a power grab. They don’t want a middle class. They are trying to bankrupt us.
My question is we can recall a state governor and have a special election, why can’t we do the same for an incompetent and illegitimate president? Maybe we need a new constitutional amendment that provides for this? Basically a mulligan for the highest office. They have lemon laws for cars, why not for elected government officials?

I just saw the new James Bond Movie “No Time To Die”. It was very good, but very long. I think they could have cut out some stuff and made it shorter and it would have been even better for it. But what do I know. In this movie they apparently make a break from several old standbys. I don’t want to give away anything just yet, because the movie just came out and for all of you planning on going to see the movie deserve the same viewing experience that I had. Needless to say I was surprised by the movie. It has left me wondering where they are planning on taking the franchise? I also wonder if they shot themselves in the ass? But if you are an action movie fan, or a 007 fan, it is a must see. Just do yourselves a favor don’t drink any soda in the movie, because it is a long one and you won’t want to miss any part of it by having to run to the rest room. I think Daniel Craig will go down if not the best James Bond certainly the most believable one. While he did a lot of action scenes in the movie, they certainly were not on par with the ones in his earlier movies. He is definitely showing his age for this type of movie. Maybe it was a good time for him to retire from this series.

I am beginning to think that the FBI is becoming more and more like the Gestapo from Germany’s Nazi government. They already have their own SS in the form of antifa. I want to know if Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto are required reading for government officials? What are we going to have next, concentration camps and gulags for all dissenters? Will midnight raids on our homes be coming soon?

Are the management in Southwest Airlines, that stupid? What do they think they can just force all of their workers to take the vaccine? This could bankrupt them. I hope they are happy. The problem is that the government and many companies are not giving anyone credit for the far superior natural immunity. Also children and young healthy adults really don’t need the vaccination. I took the vaccines because I work in the ICU and I take care of COVID-19 patients, I also have several comorbidities. But nobody forced me to take them. My hospital has not mandated vaccines, and that is hw it should be. The problem is that the government has not been truthful about the efficacy of vaccines. If they would have been truthful about masks, therapeutics, vaccines and sheltering in place and the safe distancing from the start, we would be a lot better off and people might actually trust the information that is being put out there. But, know the government wanted to crush our rights and take more and more control of our lives.

Why are the working class being punished by these vaccine mandates? It is because a vast majority of them voted for Trump? House wives who presumably voted for Biden, are not really being affected. What do you think?

This is a warning to the fringe groups on the left side such as the transgender population, BLM and Antifa. Totalitarian governments don’t tolerate fringe groups or any groups related to religion or of any lifestyle that may be considered out of the norm. They are considered as a threat, because they are considered a dissenting view, ie one not held by the powerful elite. Transgender and, BLM and Antifa are simply tools and serve as a means to an end. Once communism overtakes this country, these groups will either assimilate into the culture or they will be eradicated. If you don’t believe me, Just just look at history. It has happened in Japan, when they tried to stamp out Christianity and the same thing is happening in China now, only in this case, these individuals are now imprisoned and are being forced to work labor camps. Russia falls under the same sphere, it is an atheistic society, that only marginally tolerates religion. So watch who you jump in bed with. They will learn all your secrets, and eventually you will become nothing more than an unnecessary irritant.
TRUMP and the Republican party want independent thinkers and self sufficient individuals. While the democratic party wants blind followers with no independent and original thinking and are codependent with no drive to create anything new, just to destroy.
