The Making and Life of a Blogger: The Story Continues: Chapter Nineteen–My Facebook Journey

I joined the world of Social Media for a second time in or around 2011 with Facebook. The first time was in the mid 1990’s with AOL. I can’t get an exact date when I joined FB because everything has to be a secret with that webpage. Their lack of transparency is amazing. It never used to be that way. I know the approximate date because I know I joined Flickr at about the same time. I remember posting on my wall when I wanted to do something private, so I know I was just learning to navigate the site. FB has made many “improvements” over the years and added features to their webpage. Some things have become easier while other things have become more difficult. A couple of years ago, I reached the 5,000 friend limit. So I created a page so I could have more than 5,000 followers. Well, you think I was trying to steal the Statue of Liberty. They made the task so hard, I eventually gave up. You would think that you could just transfer your friends over to the page and go from there. Well, no, you have to start from scratch, you also have a limit on how many friends that you can refer to your new page. After spending countless days and hours on the project and barely having a third of my friends ported over to the new page, I cried Uncle and closed up the page. So much for increasing my numbers to over 5,000.

In the last couple of years, I also noticed that no matter how many friends I had, the number of responses to my posts never seemed to increase. I would intentionally go out of my way to make obnoxious statements to get people to flame me, and I would get just a couple of comments. It did not matter what the subject, the numbers never seemed to increase by that much. That is when I found out all about shadow banning. Facebook had found a more insidious way to reduce your conservative impact on the internet, instead of canceling you or suspending your account, they just block everything you post. Thereby, only allowing a few people to make comments or to only allow a few people to see your page.

When I first started posting on FB, I noticed that your postings seemed to shift all over the place after you logged on and off. It took me a long time to realize why they do this. This way they can delete your postings and you can never find out that they have done this, mainly because your postings and your friend’s postings are all scrambled up. Not only was it irritating, it was a form of censorship. Since I never really took FB that seriously in the early years, I didn’t really care that much. It was more of a novelty and not a tool for communication for me. My time was consumed mainly by my photographic sites. It was not until Trump started running for office that I became more involved with FB. I also became even more involved when the COVID-19 pandemic broke out that I really started spending even more time on FB, that their censorship became a real issue. My postings were now being routinely deleted and that is when I finally had enough. I started investigating alternate sites and found that the same things were happening there as well, and besides, they just were not that easy to use. Especially with only being able to upload postings using your cellphone on Instagram, what the Hell!? So, that is when I decided to start my own blog. I will discuss my blog on a later chapter. One thing I will mention is that I set up a series of postings where I could copy my FB postings thus acting as a backup, so to speak. On more than one occasion, I had to go back to my blog to copy and repost missing FB postings. It always seemed to work this way, no sooner after I reposted the missing article, it would magically reappear. I found this truly amazing. It also seems that now that they know that I repost the deleted postings, they no longer delete them. That is also when I noticed that the level of shadow banning was increasing.

I also noticed that when I set up my Instagram account, I was getting a ton of comments on my postings, then they magically started drying up as well. If you are interested in reading some of these postings, you can go to my blog common-sense-in-america.com and look in the category “Postings From Other Sites” and you will find hundreds of Facebook and Instagram postings there. As a matter of fact, I am going to repost some of the more important postings in this chapter. Because not everyone likes to read, I started a podcast where on occasion I read from some of my blog postings as well as discussing subjects of import and interest. I will also discuss my podcast in a later chapter.

Thank you President Donald Trump for all your work . You have done more for this country with less praise than any other president. Your treatment by the press and the left has been abysmal. I have 2 things you need to address . 1st I think it is important for you to have a little more oversize on the states that are opening or not opening. The governor’s of States like Michigan, Minnesota and Maine are trampling on there citizen’s constitutional rights. Not to mention they are intentionally delaying opening up to hurt the economy and your presidential campaign. 2nd Fauci needs to go. He is a tool of the left and big pharma. He is mostly wrong in his predictions and only has been right with hand washing and social distancing. Not very good since these are the basic steps taken with the prevention of all communicable diseases. Every time he talks the market drops and thereby ultimately hurts you. He has way too much power and I don’t trust all of his motives. Thank you again.

May 21, 2020 4:20 am

People are getting tired of the state closures. People are rebelling and are therefore not wearing masks and not following the social distancing guidelines in a lot of these states. When people are pushed too far they become less willing to comply with rules. I am sure if the state governments had kept there word and started opening once they knew the hospitals were not going to be overwhelmed, people would be more willing to comply.

May 24, 2020 2:15 am

Duties of the President of the United States. Enforce laws created by Congress. The constitution was created by congress. So it is his duty to enforce it. Also he is the leader of the armed forces, which thereby infers that his job is to protect the American people. Interesting, protect the people, which I would believe that it also meant all rights guaranteed by the Constitution and of course the Bill of Rights and all of the following amendments. So what is the problem with him protecting our right to go to church or mosque or synagogue and practice our faith ?

May 26 1030 pm

Press Part 1: President Trump I think you are doing a great job, and given the chance you will turn the economy around. However you have to get re-elected to really turn this country around. I think your scrappy remarks and fighting style is refreshing. However you can over do it. I think you are actually hurting yourself in the polls. Please for the sake of this country try toning it down just a little. Don’t pick as many fights and try to over look some of the presses comments.

May 26, 2020 11:16 pm

Part 2, The Press. If a reporter asks a terrible question simply ignore him/her and go on to the next reporter. This way you aren’t stooping to there level. If they insist, say there question doesn’t justify an answer. Eventually either the reporter will change there questions or they will get replaced by there news service. They have to have something to report, you are giving them nothing.

For all those people that have time to loot and riot and destroy our history. Because you are out of work. How are you living, where is the money coming from? Think of this before you vilify this country.

If we forget our past, we will repeat it. It has happened time and time again. Hitler once asked if anybody remembered the Armenians? Over a million of them were killed at the end of WWI. Well, the answer was no. So over six million Jews and other races were killed. We only talk about black slavery. There are thousands of white children and women kidnapped and enslaved throughout the world every year for the sex traffic business. Where is the all the press coverage of this?

I have in several postings stated that it is important to remember our past. But studying history can be a double-edged sword. While it is important to study history so that we can learn from our mistakes, we cannot let all the negative things that happened in the past taint our soul and govern our every action. Today’s society cannot be held responsible for things that happened hundreds of years ago. Nobody is perfect everybody has done something they regret. Even Martin Luther King, he was a philanderer. So because he wasn’t perfect should that detract from what he accomplished? Should we take down his statues and change all the streets named after him? The answer is no. The world is full of good people, unfortunately the actions of bad people tend to make the news much more frequently than the actions of good people. Please remember this and try to be a little more tolerant of your neighbor.

In my life I have worked with people of all races, I have also had and have friends of all races. During this time I have either listened to or been involved in countless conversations with these people. In all this time I can count on one hand where black peole talked about hiking and camping. Now I have heard that there is talk of our park service being racist. First of all this is nonsense. The park service pays barely above minimum wage.  People work in these parks because they love the outdoors. If you don’t love the outdoors you are not going to work in these parks. The parks don’t have the funding so they can increase the salaries.  They are always the first to suffer cutbacks. They aldo can’t force people to fill out applications to work in the park service.  They can only hire from the pool of applications they get. Let’s face it not everybody likes the outdoors or wants to work there.

I will probably get flamed for this, but its true. People of color make up about 13 or so percent of the US Population,  that doesn’t mean that they get to make all the decisions for the rest of the country. We all get a say.

For all you people who are planning on voting for Biden, he no longer exists. He wasn’t that sharp to begin with. If he wins you are getting his Running mate, AOC and Pelosi. Think about that when you vote in November.

7/12/2020 4:10PM

I am an ICU Registered nurse. I have not only worked all the way through this crisis, I have taken care of these patients, and watched countless people die from 35 to 85 years of age. If you have comorbidities like, high blood pressure, obesity and COPD and you get it, you have virtually received a death sentence. A sentence that takes 2 to 3 weeks. This is not CNN or MSNBC or the NYT talking this is a nurse that works with this shit that is talking. I don’t like masks either, but they do help to protect other people, like your family and anybody you come in contact with for extended periods of time. I am sure fairly incidental contact, like from people passing by while out walking is not going to give you covid. Unless you French kiss everybody, or sneeze on them or cough on them. Then the chances go up. After you get covid, it takes a week or so for the symptoms to show up. In some cases the symptoms may be very minor, like from a mild cold. Some people don’t know they have it at all. But they still are contagious. They can spread it to people that are less healthy or are elderly. This is not BS, this is from someone who knows.

7/19/2020 09:22AM

President Trump and all Presidents of the last 150 years live and have lived at the White House during their term or terms in office. It is essentially their home. Where else is President Trump supposed to give his speeches? It is just like Biden giving a speech from his basement or backyard. People need to focus on the major issues and stop taking exceptions with distracting minutiae. President Trump could run into am burning building and save a family from burning to death, and they would say why didn’t he put the fire out in his spare time? There just mad because he attacked Biden’s campaign platform and exposed it for what it is, a platform that if implemented as policy will destroy not only our economy but our country as well.

7/28/2020 10:00PM

Are we as a country so ego centric that when a city, state or country comes up with a good idea, we feel that it is beneath us or not worthy of our consideration.  I am talking about police departments in Camden(police training), NJ. Detroit, Michigan(riot control), France (use of hydroxychloroquine), and Europe( opening schools). These places are doing things right, why can’t we do the same. Or is it all about politics and greed? We need to put aside our differences and do what is right. America is the greatest country in the world, visit other countries if you don’t believe it. We just have to fix our problems.  By working together we can solve these problems.  It should not matter who is running for President,  they should both be working towards the same  goal.

7/30/2020 11:54 AM

Does anybody know how much a 5 day treatment of Remdesivir cost? I will tell you, $3,100.00. Guess how much a 5 day treatment plan of hydroxychloroquine, Azithromax and zinc cost? $20.00. Do I need to say any more. You do the math, and tell me why we are being pointed in the direction we are. Oh by the way, Remdesivir is not licensed anywhere else in the world, and the hydroxychloroquine treatment triad is being used all over the world with great effect. Also, does anybody wonder why we have 25% of the deaths, but not 25% of the population. Just in case you are wondering, our population is 4.25% of the world population.

8/1/2020 11:312 AM

We have 25% of the deaths because we are limiting are treatments. If you have a drug that has been on the market for 65 years, and has been deemed safe as long as you stay within the proper dosing, and the rest of the world is using it with fewer deaths, why not continue to use it. We basically stopped using it months ago. We just started using it again in the last week or so, and that only sporadically. Before you go ape shit, make sure you have the facts right. Most of the studies done have been flawed. They were done with two goals in mind, one to prove that the drug was unsafe and second that it was ineffective. Are these the results you want to quote from? Remember, President Trump is the anti-Christ. The left will do anything to discredit him.

8/4/2020 2:59PM

How many people have moved in the last 5 years? Every time you move and register to vote in that new location, you get a new location to vote. A lot of states don’t keep up with this. So now if they do a mass voting , you are getting a sent to your old address and the new one. What happens to the old ballot? You say this is not possible. I just had it happened. I have been living in the house for 2 years, and I received a ballot for a previous owner of the house. What was to stop me from sending it in. As long as I could fill it out. Personal information is easy to find on the internet. One year I moved 3 times, and each time I got a new location to vote in. I wonder if they were mailing out ballots then if I would have had 3 sent out? When we do absentee voting, we are requesting a ballot. This is different, than a mass mailing for everybody on the list. We have had 140,000 covid deaths. How many of these people are still on the voting lists. How many will get ballots mailed to them. Unscrupulous people live by different rules and they think of things that regular people don’t. How many electoral votes does a candidate get if he wins a state by one vote. The answer is all of the votes. Except in a couple of states, which split the votes.

8/15/2020 4:45 AM

Hitler took control of all the media. He started with the children, put them in youth groups. He burned all the literature that was against his beliefs. He found a common enemy to hate, the Jewish people. Kind of like our police now. They say Antifa is anti fascist, but these groups, including the far left are following the Nazism/Fascism/Communist play book.

8/16/2020 9:10 PM

I haven’t ranted for a while. So I guess it is time I did so. I don’t know how many people have thought past the November election, especially if Biden/Harris wins. Ist of all Harris, will be the last constitutional president we have. She will also be the 1st dictator we have. There will no longer be a constitution. Second of all, China will have a blank check to rule the world. Do you think England, France and Canada will stand up to China? They are already partially socialist as it is. They all have socialized medical care. For all those people from the Philippines, you can kiss your country goodbye. China will completely take over the South China Sea and then take over your country. There will be nobody to stop them. Do you think Australia and New Zealand will be able to stop them? How about Japan, can anybody remember imperial Japan? They are not that far removed from that era. They will most likely partner up with China. There is far more at stake than the first and second amendment, and Health Care. Our existence as we know it is. Do yourself a favor, listen to your brain and heart, stop believing everything you hear or see on TV. Do your own research and find out the truth for yourself.

8/21/2020 9:21 AM

I don’t usually get involved in the discussion about abortion. I am frankly for it, but not in the 3rd trimester. What I have heard it is not too safe. It amounts to a full term delivery. If the fetus can survive outside the mother without life support, it deserves to live. It would be murder to end that life. I don’t know why you would want to carry the fetus the whole term than abort it anyway. I would think you would become too attached to the baby. You might as well put the child up for adoption. This way you could make a barren couple happy. Also why would it take you that long to decide whether or not you wanted to keep the baby. Besides as I already said you can put the baby up for adoption. This argument is pointless if you ask me. I thought Roe vs Wade took care of it. Though the law could be tightened up, so that states could not intervene in the second trimester. Only allow third trimester abortions for medical necessity, in other words when the mother’s life is at stake.

8/26/2020 4:13AM

I know the black people of America have suffered throughout our history, so have the Asian population and Irish have also been treated poorly as well. Probably nobody has been treated as poorly as the native Americans.  For three hundred years we waged a war of extermination against various Indian tribes. However,  in the last 50 or so years we have really tried to change our treatment of black people. In many cases they have been given preferential treatment.  We still have a ways to go. But I believe looting rioting and killing is counter productive. We have to put aside our differences and work together.

8/27/2020 12:32 AM

I know our is history is full of atrocities. We can’t hold the people responsible today for the actions of people that lived hundreds of years ago, or at the very least before we were born. My question is how many of us today have owned slaves, killed native American Indians, put a white pillow case over our head and put a burning cross on a black families front yard, destroyed someone’s place of business, thrown a brick at a cop or tried to blind one with a laser pointer? Probably none of you. So what do we have to be ashamed of? What do we have to ask forgiveness for? I have friends and co-workers of all races, that I interact with on a daily basis. None of us care about skin color, we only care about how we treat each other and how competent we are at work. That is how we should all be. It is not that hard. You simply treat everybody how you want to be treated. Unless of course you are a dominatrix, LOL. But you get the idea. I just finished an two part article on this country. In the second one I made a statement of what we need to make our country great. My answer was tolerance. If we have that we can overcome everything else.

8/30/2020 5:10PM

If Chris Wallace is not going to have 2 guests up for a discussion so both views can be heard. He should at least keep the one side honest. On his recent show one guest went off on a rant about President Trump’s handling of the Corona virus. She made an obviously false statement, and Wallace did not at least let her know that it was incorrect, if he can’t do that, bring in another guest, so both sides can get there word out. She stated that President Trump did not set up a supply chief to make sure supplies reached all the critical areas. Obviously false, and I am sure Wallace was aware of it. I thought Fox News tried to aspire to higher standards than MSNBC and CNN? It may seem like a small matter, but president Trump is fighting for his political life and ours for that matter, as well.

831/2020 1:55 PM

It’s that time again. Rant time.. I just posted a question to my wife. I know I am so much fun. I asked her that if your enemy told you in advance what their plans were, what does that say about their feelings toward you? I am sure many of you know the answer. I will tell you anuway. It shows a total lack of respect for their enemy or you. That despite knowing their plans in advance, you simply don’t have the skill, tenacity, personnel, wherewithal or the mental capacity to counter their plan. China has done this, with their plans for world domination and the left or Democratic party has done the same thing. They want to destroy our country and turn it in socialist/communist puppet regime of China’s communist party. If you don’t believe me, just follow the actions of many of our political leaders. Many of them have been bought and paid for by China. Even if President Trump wins the election, he will ultimately lose. And there is not a damn thing we can do about it. Hillary Clinton has said so. Let’s prove them wrong.

9/3/2020 11:53 AM

So it is reported that the Chinese have a bigger navy than the US. My question is how many aircraft carriers does China have (2)? The Us has 10 that they classify as true aircraft carriers and 9 more that airplanes and helicopters can be launched off. So, tell me are we counting trawlers and junk boats in our navy now? How can you say that their navy is larger? Can we count our coast guard ships as well? So how many ships does it take to make up an aircraft carrier? They certainly are several times larger than a destroyer. Does that count as well? Are we talking about the destructive power of each ship? How many nuclear submarines do they have? I think the may want to try counting again?

9/12/2020 7:24AM

Oh by the way despite what the media has been saying Trump is not responsible for original sin, and he is not the anti-Christ. He is not responsible for global warming, slavery or all the wars for the last thousand years. He is not racist, he is simply a man who loves this country. He is a man who is doing everything in his power to save this country from the far left. If you are so set on Socialism, go to China, Venezuela, and I hear Russia is taking a swing at it again. Leave our country alone. If you are black and feeling oppressed stop taking all the ivy league college spots. In some schools you have a 500% greater chance of being accepted. You have your own network channel, your own month, your own colleges and schools. Stop taking the huge salaries from the professional sports franchises. Billions of dollars have been poured into your communities. I can’t help it if the democrats are steeling the money before it reaches the people. If you want change stop voting for the democrats. Yes this country has its problems, but so does all the other 190 plus countries in the world. The difference with this country is that we can improve and right the wrongs, if everybody simply works together. PS black people are not being singled out by cops. If you don’t believe me read my blog article on shootings by cops. 

9/13/2020 8:263 PM

Why do we have military bases in just about every country in the world? Can’t these countries take care of themselves? When did we put other country’s safety before our own? We have rioting, looting and now have pyromaniacs setting fires all through the western states. What the hell is going on in our country? We have cities that are now going into a hundred plus days of rioting. Are you F—king kidding me? We need to get the hell out of these countries and let them put on their big boy pants and take care of themselves. They all have leaders, let them lead. Let them take of their own damn problems. We have been hemorrhaging money overseas for far too long. Out infrastructure is falling apart. We need to get our shit together before we can help others. When you go in an airplane, and listen to their safety video. What is the first thing they tell. Put on the oxygen mask on yourself first, before you help anybody else. Because if you pass out you are of no help to anybody. Well guess what, we are running out of oxygen.

9/14/2020 12:04 PM

So billionaire Michael Bloomberg after failing to buy the presidency for himself is trying to buy it for Joe Biden. He is donating 100 million for advertising in Florida. Isn’t there limits to how much an individual can donate for a political campaign? I guess I was wrong. “Thanks to the Supreme Court’s landmark Citizens United ruling in 2010, super PACs, which cannot contribute directly to a politician or political party, but can campaign for or against candidates, can accept unlimited contributions. Unlike super PACs, a political action committee has a donation cap of $5,000. That means an individual may be limited to donating just $2,800 to a candidate’s campaign but that person could provide endless funds to a super PAC supporting the same candidate.” So if you are a billionaire you can bend the rules anyway you like. Bloomberg would have been better off buying a new brain for Biden. I just hope that the Floridians are not gullible enough to fall for all the lies that are going to be televised.

10/5/2020 11:17Am

Since when did the left start caring about human lives? There has been countless postings, by the left stating that they hope President Trump dies of covid, How many people said they hoped that those two cops shot while in their car, died? How many black people are killed by other black people every day, including children? Nobody says a word about them. Cops are shot and wounded every day, and nothing is said. But god forbid President Trump leaves the hospital in his limo for a few minutes to show the people of the US that he is healthy, and to thank all the well wishers that have been holding a vigil outside his hospital room. That now he is jeopardizing the lives of the secret service men in the car he is riding in? He is in a separate cubicle surrounded by Plexi-glass and is wearing a mask. All of his men are wearing masks as well. It is ludicrous. Besides what about all the the thousands of medical professionals that are exposed daily to covid patients with nothing more than a N95 masks? Where is the concern for them? Since covid has started, I as an ICU nurse I have personally taken care of over a 100 positive covid patients. Where is the concern for my well being? Did I have a choice, not really. So neither did the secret service men. It was an honor for them to do that detail. They knew what he was trying to accomplish by that gesture. So stop criticizing the president for every thing he does.

10/8/2020 7:00 PM

Another thing I can’t stand is guilt by association. The left is too eager to lump this whole country as racist, for one. Case in point everybody can agree that John Wilkes Booth was a world class piece of shit. However, he was a world class actor as well, along with his brother Edwin Booth. Thousands of people flocked to see JWB perform in the theater. Are they also guilty of killing Lincoln? Edwin Booth had nothing to do with his brother’s assassination of Lincoln, but he suffered for years afterward. It took over a decade before he started getting his life back. Was that fair? There are a lot of bad people out there. But there are a lot more good people out there as well. We are not guilty because one of our fellow country man committed a crime. Also remember we are innocent until proven guilty in this country. I am against cancel culture, I am against in reparations, I am against in erasing our history and destroying our statutes. I am pro American. and pro Trump.

10/12/2020 8:02 PM

Why can’t we have consistent information on the Coronavirus Pandemic? The answer is multi-fold. Twenty-four hour news cycles are the biggest reason. It started with CNN than MSNBC jumped on board followed by FOX News. Everybody is trying to out do everybody else. They are also competing for limited dollars, related to the internet. In order to gain some level of credibility, they all have to have their own “experts”. Of course they can’t be consistent from channel to channel, because they are paid to support the agenda of the station. You have two totally polar opposite political parties. Of course everybody has to take sides. Even agencies are taking sides. Another problem is that actually doing investigative reporting is expensive. Doing research and fact checking is hard work. It is easier to make up stuff. It is also more profitable for the experts to gear their answers to what their employers want to hear. If a lock down is what your supporter wants, you can easily justify that need by fudging the numbers.

10/15/2020 4:53 PM

This is an appeal to all you people that are thinking of voting Democrat this election. Your party is no longer the party of your parents. While there still are moderate democrats in office, who are still good people, your party has been hijacked by the far left. They have the power. If Biden wins, he does not have the strength to fight them. He will be over-powered by the radicals, like Harris, AOC and Pelosi. The left want to cancel our culture and history and replace our government with Socialism and Communism. These are failed forms of government. They failed in Venezuela and Russia and the only way they are working at all in China and North Korea, is because they are a totalitarian form of government. The people have no rights. Dissent is crushed by overwhelming power. People are imprisoned for voicing their opinion. Remember Tiananmen Square. Protesters and bystanders were indiscriminately killed. Look at the rioting and violence that has occurred in our northern cities. These cities and states are run by Democrats. Vote with your brains and not your heart. Open your eyes. Our country and way of life is at stake now. If you have enjoyed a successful life, that is now being threatened. Remember nothing is for free. Ask yourself if Democrats are going to tax the rich and and big companies heavier, than why are they donating huge sums of money to that party? They would not, it is all lies. The middle class will bare the brunt of these increased taxes.

10/30/2020 3:04 PM

I guess I am ignorant, stupid or just too old to care what people think. So I am going to take a whack at this gender thing. Basically I think it is a mind f—k. It is a way confused, lonely people with nothing better to do, can screw with each other and the government. So as I understand it the term gender has become meaningless, because it is fluid. You can change your gender in one sitting. So my answer to that, who gives a f—k? Keep it to yourself. So now the catch phrase is sex, I should have known. So let’s go down that rabbit hole and have male sex bathrooms and female sex bathrooms. And we can have a party bathroom for well, whatever. Or we can just re-tool every God damn public building in this country so we only have private handicap accessible bathrooms with a baby changing station, that anybody can use. Now is everybody f—king happy? I know I am going to get flamed for this one, but guess what I don’t, wait for it, give a f—k. I know, now there won’t be enough bathrooms. So guess what everybody can be equally pissed off. No discrimination there.

I will post the 12th Amendment again, FB yanked it. I just don’t see it being effective to stop Pelosi, if it comes to that. Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)Amendment XII. The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;-The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;-The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President-The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

In all my scenarios for our future I never thought that the evil empire would win. I thought some how Trump would overcome all adversity and win a second term. I just hope that once the Biden administration is in place, they will realize that the work that Trump did helped the country, and they won’t reverse everything he did. But I realize that this is not a Hollywood movie, we are not guaranteed a happy ending. So now we have to plan for very bleak future, I really liked cheap gas. Remember $5 a gallon gas? That will be cheap in comparison to what we will be paying in the next few years. I don’t hold any ill will towards the Democrats, you were simply overwhelmed by propaganda and a lifetime of brain washing. Good luck everyone you will need it.

I am sorry, more doom and gloom. But we have another problem besides China, we have Mexico now. As you all know we have no official national language. The Hispanic population is now the dominant minority over the black population. We have had over the years an influx of hispanics from Mexico, some legal some illegal. The vast majority are hard working people. I have many friends in that population. They are attaining citizenship legally. So most of the legitimate Hispanics are already here. When we open the borders, it will benefit the illegitimate population, drug dealers and so on. Yes there will still be good people coming here. However, with this unregulated influx of immigrants, our job markets will be overwhelmed. Our borders will also dissolve. We will essentially return to the pre 1812 borders. Hispanic families are large, while Caucasian families tend to be smaller. So our population demographics will change. Eventually the Caucasian population will be in the minority. Spanish will become the national language. Also drugs will flood the country helping to destroy or core population. It is already at epidemic proportions in many states. Oregon has already taken steps to make many hard drugs legal.

Posting to Newsmax

I posted numerous emails to Fox news, local and national, I never received any feedback on these emails. I have a well-researched blog that I started in June of this year in response to the unethical behavior that has occurred in this country. It is entitled  common-sense-in-america.com.  I have begun to lose faith in our media. I am becoming more and more disillusioned with Fox News. They are deserting President Trump in droves. By the way, I never liked Chris Wallace and Juan Williams, they are both poor newsmen.

In one of my emails I mentioned to Fox about requesting a new vote for some of the key states. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada. By doing the election over in these states, and using only location voting can we ensure that the election process will be unbiased. I am not hearing anybody promoting this action. I have also sent messages to the President, his sons and daughter and several other staff members, but with no reply. I have posted copies of them on my blog. I am a Register Nurse working in the ICU for 10 years and as a nurse for another 9 years. I also have a background in history and education.

I am not a strongly political person, but Since Trump has been elected president I have become more and more political. The treatment our president has received in the last 4 years is despicable. So I have been doing my best to support our president. You are free to use any of the information that I have posted on my blog. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I have been recently watching Newsmax, pretty interesting. Also, I started to think about how Biden won Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is the number one coal producing state, they also have natural gas. So you tell why Trump did not destroy this state in the election? It should have been no contest.

11/16/2020 2:36 PM

I am sure everyone has heard of Elon Musk, Just the other day, I guess he had nothing else better to do, went and got tested 4 times for the Coronavirus. They used the same test for each of them. They were all taken at the same place one after the other. He got two positive and two negative test results. Supposedly this is one of the more accurate tests out there. It is the antibody test. So how can we base shut downs on a test that is only 50% accurate. Don’t forget this is one of the more accurate tests. So what is that saying about the rest of the tests out there? Are our numbers being doubled or even trebled to scare us into another lockdown? If so, why? What is the end game. I originally thought that it was to get President Trump out of office. Well that ship has sailed. Even the most diehard Trump fan has to wake up and smell the coffee. So with a win under their belt, and the Executive office just a few months away, why keep up the charade? Is it just about control? These lockdowns/shutdowns, whatever you want to call them are destroying our country. Tens of thousands of businesses are going to go under, never to return. With a resurgence in unemployment numbers to soon follow. I know one thing, if the tax rate goes up to 60 % or higher, you really have to think about why the hell you are even working, if you will get it all for free anyway.

Does anybody find it unusual that In the state of Georgia, President Trump had a little over 800 ballots where he was the only candidate checked off and Biden had over 90,000 of these ballots? First of all that is totally unlikely. Second of all it explains, if it also happened in the other swing states, why he lost them and the other Republican candidates won in those states. You may ask why this necessary? Trump surprised everybody and was winning by too large of margins in the swing states. They first needed time to catch up. That is why they stopped counting in these states. But they were limited with the time. However, due to time constraints they did not have time to fill up these ballots completely. So they made up phony ballots with only Biden’s name checked off. They were willing to sacrifice the rest of the candidates as long as Trump lost. He was the target all along. If they find that the same thing happened in all the states where the counting stopped, they have their proof that major fraud occurred. If the numbers were as large as they were in Georgia, they would substantial enough that they could change the results in all of these states. This is why the Dems want Trump to concede, they know that these ballots will not stand up to close scrutiny. All you have to do is compare these types of ballots to see how many Trump had and how many Biden had. They should be close for every state.

There are two ways that you can fight the election.
(1) Does anybody find it unusual that In the state of Georgia, President Trump had a little over 800 ballots where he was the only candidate checked off and Biden had over 90,000 of these ballots? First of all that is totally unlikely. Second of all it explains, if it also happened in the other swing states, why he lost them and the other Republican candidates won in those states. You may ask why this necessary? Trump surprised everybody and was winning by too large of margins in the swing states. They first needed time to catch up. That is why they stopped counting in these states. But they were limited with the time. However, due to time constraints they did not have time to fill up these ballots completely. So they made up phony ballots with only Biden’s name checked off. They were willing to sacrifice the rest of the candidates as long as Trump lost. He was the target all along. If they find that the same thing happened in all the states where the counting stopped( Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada), they have their proof that major fraud occurred. If the numbers were as large as they were in Georgia, they would substantial enough that they could change the results in all of these states. This is why the Dems want Trump to concede, they know that these ballots will not stand up to close scrutiny. All you have to do is compare these types of ballots to see how many Trump had and how many Biden had. They should be close for every state. Just one point of interest, Trump lost 5 out of the 6 states that stopped voting. He had leads in all of these states prior to this event.
(2)I think the Supreme Court should step in and make a ruling on the election. They should state that it is the legislature’s job to make laws in the election process not the courts. Therefore all the decisions made in the courts this year are unconstitutional. Since there is no way to know which votes were late or not, because of the lack of transparency, they should throw all the votes out and hold special elections in all those states with location voting only. If the democrats have nothing to hide, they shouldn’t mind. This way it will be over quickly and all the issues of voter fraud will be addressed. Also it will put a stop to all the illegal bullshit the democrats tried with their lawsuits. At the very least throw out all the mail in ballots.

I have a feeling that the way things are going, all restaurants are going to be either take out or delivery. There will be only box stores. People will have to work out at home, you are seeing more commercials showing these options for gym equipment. TV ‘s are getting larger, so I think people will no longer go to theaters. Travel will be limited, we will only do it by virtual reality. Only the wealthy will still do it. Education will be all remote, so we better learn how to make it work. I believe at some time our education and training will be limited to just what we need for our career paths. Under communism, everybody is tested and they are placed where they show an aptitude. No more free choice for careers. The only small businesses that survive will be the ones that have internet presence or are affiliated with Amazon.com. With cars eventually being all electric, with limited range, road trips will cut down to our surrounding states. There will be vast areas of empty buildings where stores and restaurants used to be, they will eventually be converted to warehouse apartments. Our living space, by necessity will become larger for the average citizen, because we will spend most of our time there. Watch some of our Sci- fi movies with futuristic living. Some of these are pretty accurate. Farming will be only by large collectives, pretty much already is. There will be three types of people city dwellers, survivalist that live outside of the large cites and the ultra rich, with there huge walled and gated compounds.

Does anybody actually think that the state and local governments have the legal power to close down businesses due to the pandemic? They have no proof that these businesses are the ones responsible for the spread of the virus. The numbers show that around 1 % of the spread is caused by these businesses. The numbers show that about 70% of the spread is caused by group activity, ie families in closed quarters. Do you think an incidental contact is going to cause a spread of the virus or do you think prolonged and close contact will cause it to spread more? It is only common sense. They are basically punishing these businesses without due process of the law. It would be like locking up people and confiscating their belongings without a trial. This needs to stop. We the people are more powerful than any government. The problem with the vast majority of us is that we are conformist and fatalist. Do you think every law that has been written is just, has every law been evaluated by the courts to see if they are constitutional? The answer is no. Do you wonder why laws created by our governments take up hundreds of pages? They do this to obfuscate their true goals. Most of these laws are not written for the betterment of society, they are mostly arbitrary in nature, and serve only one purpose. That is to increase the power of the government and to take away our freedom. Do you wonder why nobody has done a study to see how much of the virus is spread by the big box stores? The answer is simple, money. These large corporations love that they are the only game in town. They are reaping record profits. It is estimated that the wealth in the top 25 billionaires of the world has increase by one trillion dollars. While the poor and middle class have suffered greatly. Corporations in fact like high unemployment, it drives down the salaries. Conversely low unemployment increase the salaries that they have to pay, due to the scarcity of the labor resource. Also big corporations have money to give to these politicians for election contributions. There used to be a limit of how much money you could contribute to their campaigns, This was done to reduce corruption. However they have found loopholes and hundred’s of millions of dollars can now be donated to these politicians. What small business can afford to do this? Our country is sick, we need a major overhaul. Trump was doing this, that is why he lost the 2020 election. He was attacking the status quo. So he was eliminated. It took them 4 years , but they did it. Let me be perfectly clear, Socialism and Communism are not the answers. They are a blight and cancer on the people of the world. Cancel culture and these frequent closures and the constant barrage of biased news are tools of the left to wear down the majority of the people. They are using guerrilla tactics against us, to keep us reeling and off guard. Because of the continuous onslaught to our senses we do not know which way to turn or how to respond. We need to stay strong, don’t give up on your religious faith and your families. We can beat the left, we just have to be united. Don’t let the gains made by President Trump waste away to nothing. It is already happening, as the weak willed Republican congressmen go back to their old conformist ways.

Everybody says AG Barr did a good job. I am sorry I don’t see it that way. I judge a persons job performance on his/her productivity. He was the AG from Feb 14, 2019 to Dec 14, 2020. During his time in office, how many convictions were made? We all now that the people he investigated were culpable for numerous criminal actions, and yet nobody has served any time in jail or has even been charged. We have audio and written evidence proving that illegal activities were perpetrated. He also did not investigate the 2020 election. Despite thousands of sworn affidavits and video evidence. I believe this was a gross dereliction of duty. We can argue the fact that he should have divulged the fact that Hunter Biden was under investigation or not. Frankly I don’t think he divulged it because he never was investigated by Barr. So there was nothing to divulge. We will never know, because Biden and his team will sweep all the evidence under the rug. No AG Barr did a poor job. He was there simply to placate Trump. To make it look like he was actually doing something. I believe he was a Trojan horse just like “Dr.” Fauci was. I put quotes around the title because I think he is a joke. He has gotten by on other people’s hard work, and doesn’t deserve the reputation he has. Frankly he is not thought of very highly by many of his peers.

1/3/2021 10:58 AM

The worst thing the government did was give extra money to hospitals for covid patients. Now everybody that might have had the flu has covid instead. There is just more money in covid patients. I am not however saying that covid is a farce. I have seen way too many people die from covid-19 and resulting complications. Treating covid is a tricky problem, and favorable outcomes hinge on rapid and aggressive treatment. If a patient has the typical symptoms, doctors need to treat it like a covid case to stay ahead of the virus. They can always back off treatments if the test comes back negative. I have taken care of over 150 positive covid patients since the pandemic started in early March. The virus needs to be respected , but not feared. With proper precautions taken, the non infected individual is relatively safe. Transmission numbers increase with the increase in duration of the contact. In cases of incidental contact, especially outdoors, they are relatively benign. Meeting and passing by a person on a hiking trail offers little or no chance of transmission. Viruses are very small, wearing a cotton mask is analogous to using a chain link fence to stop mosquitoes from getting in your house. What cloth masks do do is reduce the force of air produced by a sneeze or cough of an infected individual, thereby reducing the distance the virus can travel. People that social distance at least 6 feet or more are relatively safe even without wearing masks. But I put the caveat, that you are safer outdoors when social distancing than you are indoors. The covid virus can stay suspended in the air for a little while. Typically there is less air circulation indoors than outdoors, duh. So your are safer outdoors. On the subject of the new strain that supposedly is circulating around the country now, I am reserving my opinion for now. Every virus mutates, that is why the you can catch the flu every year. When a virus mutates, it usually involves the receptors on its surface, which is what the immune system and vaccines attach to. So you need a new vaccine or have to get infected again to gain immunity. So my concern is that they are saying that the vaccines will work on the new strain, and their is no difference in the lethality of the virus, however, it is magically spread more easily. And I am finding the timing too convenient. The virus has become weaponized by our governments as the means to maintain high levels of control and leave little remaining freedom for the masses. This new strain is just too convenient for my taste.

1/19/2021 11:14 PM

I am getting a little tired of the left blaming President Trump for the Capitol riots. He did not, I repeat did not incite the violence and riots. Listen to his speech if you don’t believe me. Don’t listen to a Rhino like Mitch McConnell who is trying to save his job. Stop being stupid Mitch, no matter how much ass you kiss, Schumer is not going to play nice. Several antifa and BLM people have been arrested for their complicity in the Capitol riots. Just watch the videos from the 6th and compare them to the videos of the summer riots. You will see the same tactics being used as well as similar attire being worn. You can tell which ones were Trumpers, they were walking around like dorks taking selfies. Bsides, Trump had not even finish his speech when they started assaulting the Capitol. The left is using this event to destroy the right.

1/20/2021 9:14 AM

I could only listen to a few minute’s of Biden’s Inaugural speech before I started getting nauseated. He has no right to speak about people losing their jobs and businesses going bankrupt, when his lefty governors and mayors and congressmen and women, kept this country closed up for over 10 months so the economy would stagnate, and Pelosi refused aid to starving Americans because she did not want to give a victory to Trump. Their actions have to be the most despicable actions ever taken by politicians for private gain. The only thing worse is their allowing the already decimated businesses of Democratic cities burn down and get ransacked by “mostly peaceful protestors”. Give me a f—king break. Their sanctimonious behavior sickens me. I don’t know how they live with themselves. And too think they want to actually impeach a private citizen, who never took a penny while he was in office. May the lot of them rot in you know where.

1/21/2021 2:14 AM

Would everyone agree we live in the same planet, I think the answer is yes? Well we live in a closed system. We are drinking the same water dinosaurs drank, just recycled. The air we breath, was recycled and used by people on the other side of the world. So what China does to the environment eventually will affect us. So you tell me what difference dies it make where the oil comes from, environmentally speaking? The only difference is how cleanly you do the process. In the US we are pro environment, over seas, not so much. So are actually better off getting the oil here. Also don’t give me that line of BS about green energy, wind and solar and geo-thermal are at least 50 or more years away from being competitive with fossil fuels. If you want to reduce our carbon emissions, plant trees. Also teach third world countries how to farm properly. In South America they are clearing thousands of acres of rain forest every year for farm land. The land becomes wasteland in under 5 years due to poor farming techniques. So education and planting trees is a lot cheaper and much more effective than trillion dollar pipe dreams.

1/24/2021 2:32 PM

We lose high paying jobs and replace them with low paying jobs. That is what happened under the Clinton administration. They said he created millions of jobs, the problem was very few of them were high paying. So people lost good jobs and now they had to work two jobs instead. Under his 8 years in office, millions of jobs went overseas. That is the trend of the Democrats. They only want a country of poorly educated burger flippers, who are easy to control.

2/1/2021 5:42

You may be tired of hearing about President Trump, I know he has been out of office a few weeks. In today’s society that makes him old news and ancient history. A lot of people may not have liked him and what he stood for. But nobody can deny, he was for the common working man, he was for creating jobs. He was for Americans, he was for improving the living conditions of Americans. During his presidency world peace became a possibility. Now under Biden, we have lost jobs, the federal minimum wage will increase to $15.00, more than double that in many states. It will not help the poor. It will simply cause people to get laid off, more small businesses to close, and the cost of living to up across the board. Minimum wage increases should be mandated by states. $15.00 in California is not the same as it is in Georgia or Alabama. It will have little effect in California, it will destroy businesses in the southern states. Under President Trump taxes were cut, so real income increased for families. Under Biden, tax breaks will be repealed and the rates will go up even to higher levels than that under President Obama. So, for all those people who voted for Biden, I hope you like a higher cost of living, higher taxes and don’t forget fewer rights. The left is chipping away at our first and second amendment rights. In Germany and Italy, private citizens were not able to own guns prior to WWII. When people are not able to defend themselves , they become weak. They become easy targets. People also need to be well informed. Don’t take other people’s word for things, do the work and research. Don’t be sheep, be leaders, be strong. Defend your families and your rights. Thousands of Americans died before you, so could have these rights, don’t take them for granted.

2/6/2021 4:00 PM

There has been a lot of talk going on about not taking the vaccine. First of all, if you have had the virus, you don’t need the vaccine. You are already immune to it. We have been at this almost an entire year, and we are still not at the herd immunity numbers we need to truly open up our society. That is why the vaccines are better and quicker. They are also a hell of a lot safer than taking the chance of getting infected, so you can gain your immunity. I have seen younger people get infected and end up dying from it. They probably had a comorbidity they were not aware of. But the virus found it anyway. Chances are it would have emerged later in life. By taking the vaccine, millions of people can gain immunity each week, at little or no risk. We need to give the vaccine to first responders, than the elderly and those at higher risk. Than the general population. However, don’t throw away unused vaccines at the end of the day. Have a list of people you can call, to give them to, so they don’t go to waste. A vaccine thrown away is a possible life lost to the infection. We also need a more reliable way of testing people. And I am not talking of the Chinese rectal swab, that is insane. Even if you have the vaccine or have been infected, you can still get a colony of the virus to grow in your nose or nares. The thing is that they are totally harmless now. However they will give you a positive test, if you get a swab test. This is how the Democrats are going to keep the country locked down. Because we know they are famous for not following the science. So there are two things we need to beat this pandemic; (1) every individual who has not had the infection, needs to get vaccinated. I know this is going to be hard to do, because you may have been one of those who had no symptoms, if that is the case just get it to be safe. The test to see if you have immunity is not accurate. (2) we need a new and more accurate test to see if you are infected or not, one that will not give false positives. It happens even in the hospitals, with our current tests. I am not a doctor, but I am an ICU nurse with 20 years of experience and almost one year of taking care of Covid-19 patients, that makes me a person in the know.

4/1/2021 1:36 PM

I know, I seem, like the doomsday man, now. China and Iran signed a 25 year agreement of cooperation. It didn’t say it was an outright alliance, but I am reading between the lines. All we need is Russia and North Korea to join them and we are really screwed. That means Nuclear power and weapons will most likely be shared. If you know your history, look at how WWI started with all of the alliances. China has drawn a line in the sand. It is also a whole lot worse than just those two countries. China has a lot of influence throughout the world now. If it came down to choosing sides, I am afraid that a lot more countries would side with China. We may find ourselves vastly outnumbered and on the loosing side of the next cold or hot war.

4/10/2021 2:02 PM

I think it is safe to say the Biden is not only going to go down as the worst president in our history, but he is also going to be listed as the most destructive president as well. Every action he has taken has helped to divide this country further and further. He is trying to weaken our Constitution as well. Our country was founded on the premise of a weaker central government and stronger state governments. We also value our freedoms , which include speech and the right of assembly. These freedoms are being chipped away at, by cancel culture and wokeness. Who in the hell came up with that term anyway? I think the best way to beat this crap is to stop enabling the individuals who are pushing these agendas. If we stop listening to them and empowering them, their influence will eventually be eroded away. We are more powerful than we think. We can also stop buying products from companies who support this crap, and eventually they will be forced to stop their support or go out of business. Instead of waiting for Twitter to block your access, just quit them in droves. If all 70 plus million people who voted for President Trump last year, quit Twitter, Ole Dorsey would think twice about the shit he is espousing. Stop watching liberal news channels and watch Newsmax and even Fox News. You will be surprised what you have been missing. Maybe your eyes and ears will open up some.

5/1/2021 12:04 PM

The longer that Covid-19 circulates through the world’s populations, the greater the chances for mutations. Eventually these mutations will cause enough variations in its structure that our current crop of vaccines won’t work. We need to get people vaccinated to slow down the progression of the virus. If you have already been infected, you don’t need the vaccine. I also believe that young children don’t need the vaccine. For some reason they are virtually immune to the virus. Which leads me to believe that it was intentionally altered to behave this way. Read the book Inferno, By Dan Brown. If people can think of something, there is someone out there who can make it a reality. While the book Inferno talked about population control by mass sterilizations from an infectious agent, Covid-19 just kills the elderly and those in poor health. Kind of like natural selection for people. As man became more civil we also altered the rules of survival of the fittest. I think this is the inevitable outcome of any civilized society. What is the answer, I don’t know? Surely killing off our sick and elderly is not the answer. I hope that Covid-19 was not intended to be such a tool. If it was, the people who did this need to pay dearly.

5/30/2021 5:36 PM

Connie and I just got back from a road trip to Florida. We drove close to 5,500 miles in 17 days. We did a lot of site seeing along the way. Our journey was an eye opener. We both spent a great deal of time just talking and listening to total strangers who opened up themselves to us. We had just as much fun talking to these people as we did in site seeing. We talked to people of many races. I did not see any hate or animosity in these people. These people just want to live their lives and raise their families. Many of the states we visited have relaxed rules on mask wearing. I want to let you know that It was a pleasure talking to people who were not wearing masks. We went on a paddle boat cruise on the Mississippi river, where social distancing, while disembarking was measured in inches, not feet. Virtually none of these people were wearing masks. It is evident that people are just tired of the damn things. I did notice something, though, children and young adults were the ones wearing the masks. You can see that brainwashing has been taking place. They seemed to be terrified of not wearing the masks. This has to stop. One thing I took from this trip is that we need to stop giving money to other countries in lieu of our country. Our people are living in poverty, houses are falling apart, roads are disintegrating and bridges are rusting away. There are businesses everywhere that have closed up permanently, many from Covid-19 shutdowns. I have one thing to say to our leaders. Biden and et. al. get your head out of your asses and start helping our people.

6/10/2021 10:32PM

Ok guys, if you have been infected by covid-19 and have antibodies, you don’t need the vaccine, period. Children stand a better chance of getting sick from the vaccine then they do from covid-19. Unite and fight the system. You have the right to say no to the vaccine if that is what you want. If you are young and healthy refuse it. Public schools and colleges cannot legally force you to get the vaccine. Stand up for your rights. Politicians and other institutions have gotten used to unfettered power the last year or so. We have let them get away with it. The prolonged shutdowns were illegal. They had the right to do this for emergencies only. 1 1/2 years is not an emergency. We need to take our country back. I got the vaccine because I have several comorbidities and I work with covid patients. It was my choice. My wife got it because she felt safer, because of my job. Her choice. Nobody forced us. That is the way it is supposed to work. Give people the information and allow them to make an educated decision.

7/12/2021 5:42 AM

I have decided that I am long over due for a rant. Mainly I want to rant because everything is pissing me off lately. Why in the F–k are the left pushing Socialism when Cuba and Venezuela are falling apart, China is a virtual police state and Russia is a hackers paradise, where you can assassinate your rivals with impunity. The level of intelligence exhibited by these individuals is mind boggling. Which leads me to the green new F–ked deal. How many times must we discuss this subject. We have one of the cleanest countries in the world. France maybe has cleaner air. The communist countries are cesspools. Our world is a closed system. It doesn’t matter where you get the oil from. We all breath the same air and drink the same water. Eventually, that is. So why give the money to Russia and the Middle East? That is really stupid. Now to the subject about racism. Enough with the bullshit. Our country is not systemically racist. And nobody but a f–king idiot likes or understands critical race theory. It is crap. You also can take your woke and cancel culture and shove it up your collective asses. If I failed to piss anybody off, I am sorry. It wasn’t from a lack of trying. So don’t feel left out our slighted, I am sure I will find some way to piss you off too.

The Chinese can’t produce enough food at home. So to bypass the middleman in the US, they are growing it here and shipping it home to China. They are cutting our farmers out of the loop. They are still buying all the supplies here. But we are losing out in a lot of revenues. We can’t stop farmers from selling their land. But what is forcing them to sell the land in the first place? Is it the death tax? Other countries own large portions of our country. We don’t control all of our ports anymore. I am worried that we will sell our national parks to China. If we do it they can come in and mine them and destroy them at will. Bill Gates has bought a ton of farm land. Why is he doing that? That is a concern to me as well.

Most of my friends on FB know that I am a ICU nurse. Well those that didn’t now know this to be true. I just finished my three 12 hour shifts taking care of COVID patients. I want to let you know that our numbers of COVID patients are almost to the peak levels of last year. And what you may find interesting, is that the vast majority of our COVID patients have not received the vaccine. This new variant is just as lethal as the original virus strain, but it seems to have even more tricks up its sleeves. Those that get seriously sick, seldom fully recover if at all. So guys think what you may, if you are elderly or have comorbidities, please get the vaccine. The life you save may be your own. I also want to make the following statements, I don’t think that healthy children are at any risk to get anything but a mild case of COVID, and if you have already recovered from the infection you also don’t need the vaccine. Don’t let people bully you into getting the vaccine unnecessarily. Any vaccine does have its risks, anyone saying otherwise is mistaken. Besides being a nurse for close to 20 years, I have also done an inordinate amount of research on COVID and vaccines. You may find the fruits of that research in my blog common-sense-in-america.com. I am in the process of writing another article on why people are afraid of vaccines, which will be posted in the next week or so.

7/25/2021 5:27 PM

Since I had just come off three twelve hours shifts I was A little tired, and I forgot one of the things I wanted to say. Viruses whether they are RNA or DNA strand viruses have a much shorter life cycle and a much higher mutation rate, as compared to people, To can see evidence in the yearly flu season. I get a flu vaccine every year, because there are new strains of the flu out every year. It just mutates that fast. Nobody expects last years vaccine to protect them from the new strains that come out. The more people that get infected the more times the flu virus gets to cycle and therefore the more opportunities for mutations. The Coronavirus is no different. The one thing that is different is that we have a new type of vaccine that came out, an RNA vaccine. I don’t understand all the reasons, so I wont try and explain them in this posting, but it appears to be able to deal with some variations. However, the longer it takes to get this pandemic under control the greater chance for mutations to occur that even these new vaccines can’t handle. So we may need booster shots every year to keep up with the new strains that will inevitably crop up. One thing I do know from my readings is that eventually these viruses mutate into a less virulent form, it happened with the Spanish Flu, it happens with all of them. Because if the virus is so potent that it kills everyone off, the virus will die too. There has to be a balance. So this is the point I am trying to make, every action you take has a repercussion. You may think that your not taking the vaccine only effects you. You would however, be be wrong. If you get infected because of your reticence, first the virus has more cycles that it can mutate through, increasing the risk of the vaccine becoming less effective. Second your actions affect all of your loved ones, and of course a whole mass of other people, medical and so on, even your insurance is involved and your work, because you can’t work. The point is, we don’t live in a bubble. So when you make a potentially life altering decision, keep that in mind. You do matter, no matter who you are.

7/25/2021 5:40 PM

There has been much talk about China trying to unseat us as the major super power in the world. Big deal. No super power remains top dog forever. We have had many global super powers, the first being the Persians empire, followed by the Roman Empire, the Mongol Empire, the British Empire, America and Russia, and finally maybe, China, if they don’t implode first. So you see power is a transient thing, it doesn’t last forever. In time our country will fall from it’s top seat, we may live to see it or not, but it will happen. But I know one thing I won’t let us slip without a fight, that is why I post the shit I post and write the blog articles that I post on my blog, common-sense-in-america.com. To keep the word spreading. We will not roll over and play dead.

7/2/2021 9:22 AM

I have written several articles on not on only COVID-19 but on masks as well. You can read all these postings in my blog common-sense-in-america.com. Wearing a kerchief, cloth mask or a surgical masks does little to stop the spread of any airborne virus and just a little more for droplet transmission. Wearing these masks can be compared to the following following example. Using a chain link fence to stop mosquitoes from entering you house. Would you do this, of course not? These masks provides little or no protection for the wearer and just a little more for the non-wearer. The only real benefit to wearing one of these masks is if you are coughing or sneezing. The virus can still get out, but the force of the sneeze and the cough is reduced, so the distance the particles travel is less. N-95 masks are the only masks that provide any real protection. And that only happens if it is properly fitted. I work in a hospital, and we get fitted every year to make sure the our faces haven’t changed, so that the masks is still effective. The process takes close to 3o minutes. How many people have you seen wearing a mask with the nostrils exposed or only the chin covered? In these cases the mask is totally useless. How many times have yo seen gaps around the mask? These masks are totally useless. So why are we wasting our time, when the vast majority of people are wearing fabric masks incorrectly, which are only marginally effective at best to begin with? It is all about power and control. Don’t ever forget that.

An Estimated 164 million people have been fully vaccinated, in many cases that means getting two shots, there have been even more that have been given at least one shot, which means they still have a pretty good immunity towards the covid virus. There has also been an estimated 35 million people that have been infected. They also have immunity. We have approximately 329 million people in this country. Even with these conservative numbers of immunity we are at 61% immunity. I am sure these numbers are much higher. The left controls the numbers so you need to take them with a grain of salt. Other studies have given estimates closer to 100 million people infected. We don’t know for sure because their symptoms were so so slight that they did not even realize they have been infected. I tend to believe these numbers more. so that puts us at 80%, which is smack dab in the middle of the herd immunity range. The only reason that we are seeing an increase in infections is because hundreds of thousands of infected and unvaccinated people are entering our southern borders and are being shipped by public transportation to all four corners of our country. Over 95% of the deaths due to covid now are related to unvaccinated individuals. I work in the ICU and I know this to be true. We tend to keep track of this in the hospital. Especially when they are putting us at an increased risk. We don’t have the choice to socially distance. We have to care for these highly contagious individuals. You may ask why people would risk their lives by not getting the vaccine? It has to do with paranoia and misinformation. You have our leaders to thank for that. Our military and even the CIA have also been involved in devious activities regarding vaccinations. These vaccines do work. Look at the vaccines for polio and small pox. Many people can remember being affected by these pandemics. You may argue with these facts and that is your right, but if you act in an uncivil manner or use profanity you be unfriended and blocked. I don’t have time for this kind of childish behavior. We are all adults here, so act the part.

8/2/2021 11:46 AM

Does anybody know what the phrase “law abiding citizens” means? I think the concept behind it is pretty simple. If you commit a crime you are no longer law abiding. So why are we trying to take away the guns from law abiding citizens? They are not the problem. Criminals are the problem. I just wrote an article on where do criminals get their guns. I will be posting it later this month as part of a bundle of articles entitled Randy’s Musings 3.0 on my blog common-sense-in-america.com. Well surprisingly enough they don’t go to a regular store to get their guns. Why because they mostly have criminal records, so the background check prevents them from buying their guns in licensed locations. So if we want to control crime, you need to take away their illegitimate means of acquiring them. Do stings on the black markets, hit unscrupulous pawn shops, and so on. Raiding law abiding citizen’s houses is not only unconstitutional it will be totally ineffective in cutting down on gun related crimes. Pretty simple. So why are they trying to take away our guns? It has nothing to do with crime. It is about eroding our constitutional rights and increasing their power. With no guns, we won’t be able to stop the government from the inevitable power grab that is sure to happen. If we don’t stand up for our rights we will eventually become just another communist country.

Why are we screwing with children? Why are adults trying to push their agenda off on them? Probably the best part of childhood are the years 2 to 10. You start walking and talking and you can get into a lot of shit. You also get all the cool toys during this time. Life is supposed to be care free. You have enough stress learning how not to crap your pants anymore, and getting your first set of teeth and eventually losing them. The years 10 on up are the crazy and confusing years, where hormones, acne, (for girls your first period, and growing breasts and so on), dating and their new sexual urges take place. This is a very confusing time. Undoubtedly the hardest part of growing up. So why the F–k are we screwing with the best part of childhood? Why are we trying to give kids hormones to change their genders. Why are we teaching them to hate their race and every other race? We are teaching white kids that they are bad people, and children of color that they are losers. What the hell is our problem? Let children be children. Leave our children the F–k alone. They will have the next 50 or so years to screw up their lives.

8/10/2021 9:35 AM

Are we a country of thin skinned cream puffs? Where we are so sensitive that we can’t even take a compliment without picking it apart and looking for hidden messages and meaning? What the hell have we come to? How many people when they introduce someone say that that person, whether male or female is a nice person? I have. Maybe Jen Psaki would rather have been introduced as that mean spirited, lying bitch? It certainly would have been more accurate then her being described as a nice person. She said it was sexist. Has she forgotten that she is a female? Or maybe she too is suffering from gender dysphoria? I guess she is the only one who knows for sure. But come on lets get real, what the hell is her problem?

8/11/2021 4:31 PM

I can’t make any claims for what you are experiencing where you live or work. The vast majority of covid related deaths where I work, are for patients that did not get vaccinated. I also know that the number of younger people are getting seriously infected and in some case even dying, is increasing. And yes, sadly they were not vaccinated as well. Yes, I am also seeing some come in that were vaccinated as well, but in many but not all cases, they had a compromised immune system. You can yell at me all you want, I am just going by what I am seeing from my experiences at my hospital. I am not claiming to know what is happening anywhere else. But I would be surprised if what I am seeing is not occurring in other places as well.

I am going to get off my vaccine bandwagon for a while. I feel that the only way people that haven’t gotten vaccinated to change their minds is for the FDA to approve these vaccines. The reason they haven’t is due to their hate for Trump. By doing so they would give him a moral victory. So enough is enough. What we need to address is actually much more important, that is wokeism, and cancel culture. These two concepts are ruining our country. They both start with people who do not feel that they have self worth. They crave attention. They are not talented enough, or pretty enough or smart enough to gain attention through legitimate means, so they create false movements and make a hell a lot of noise till someone listens. There is an old saying that says “the squeaky wheel gets the grease”. They also use one of our human weaknesses against us. We all crave an escape form normalcy and the boring grind of our daily lives. We also like to feel that we are doing well, that is why we pay attention and listen to bad news more than we do to good news. There is another saying, “misery loves company”. By seeing people do poorly, it makes us feel better about our lack of success. While it is true that we are attracted to these things, we are also basically cowards at heart. It takes a great deal of impetus for us to take any courageous actions. Mainly because we have too much to lose. Who wants to risk everything for a cause or to help a stranger? The answer is people who have nothing to lose, or feel like they have been cheated or do not matter. That brings me to the third thing that is hurting our country, and that is the belief that it is systemically racist. That if you are not white, you don’t stand a chance to get ahead. That no amount of hard work is going to be enough. This is a load of crap. Just watch a sporting event or a program on TV or go to the movies. There are countless people of color doing wonderous things with their lives. To fix these issue, we need to basically say “what the fuck”. Take a chance, and stop believing that you are a victim. We all matter, we can all make a difference, and we all bleed red blood. If you go back far enough in our history, we all have common ancestors. Our origins are from Africa, so what difference does it make when we relocated? Don’t forget that the people making all the noise are few in number. The vast majority of our corporations truly don’t like woke culture. The only reason that they cave in is because of two things, greed and fear. They don’t want to lose their market share and they want to gain the market that is China. They are also afraid of what a few confused, and self loathing people think and act upon. We are the majority. We need to stop paying attention to all the negative shit we hear and see, and focus on the positive. The vast majority of the people in this world all want the same thing. To raise a family and enjoy the short time we have on this wonderful planet. If we took all the money we spend on destroying our planet and use that for the improvement of our planet, there would be no hunger/starvation. Our world would truly be a paradise. It can easily support us, if we take care of it.

8/13/2021 3:59 PM

This is a a follow up to my previous dissertation, LOL. The reason we as a country are in the position that it is, is for several reasons. I have discussed them in my blog extensively. common-sense-in-america.com, Our problems started back in the early 1900s, during the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, since than we have had a few progressive presidents. During each of their tenures we have become less pro American, over taxed, and more entitled. The level of welfare has gone up, We have welfare (EBT benefits), food stamps , Medicaid and WIC checks, just to name a few. I don’t count Social Security, because these recipients paid into the system and it is more like a retirement plan than an endowment. Children today are taught to hate their country and their skin color. More and more people are self loathing. People like this are ripe for radical movements. We are also paying people not to work, so these individuals have plenty of free time to foment unrest. What they fail to realize is that in an authoritarian society, they would not have the freedom to voice their opinions. They lament their situation, but are ignorant of the reality of their lives. No matter how poor you are in the U.S. you are still free. Even the homeless have access to soup kitchens and can drink potable water. That is better than countries like Venezuela, where people go hunting on the streets looking for dogs, cats and even rats to eat. So stop wishing for a communistic society, because your wishes may come true. Remember the bread lines in the Soviet Union?

8/15/2021 12:33 PM

This is one time, that I don’t Blame Biden. Because President Trump was planning on pulling out of Afghanistan as well. I don’t agree with how it was done. But you can also blame our military for the actual details. We should have never left all our equipment there, and we should have made sure all of our allies that wanted to leave the country were evacuated. Too many people died needlessly. There also comes a time when everyone has to take responsibility for their own actions, and that goes for countries too. We gave the Afghan people a taste of freedom, but apparently that was not enough to give them a will to fight for it. We have bolstered there military for way too many years. If they can’t protect their own country, than oh well. We can’t protect every country from tyranny, despite our best intentions and wishes. The world is a dangerous and yes an unfair place. We are in a fight for our very life in the U.S. We have to come first. Once we have a stable country and economy, than maybe we can help somebody else. We have nearly bankrupted our country trying to be the good guy. Trillions of dollars have been borrowed to fight the endless wars in the middle east, all to no avail. You think we would have learned our lesson in the Vietnam war and yes even the Korean war. What did we truly accomplish there. So we have a few more square miles of countryside in Asia that are not communist. At what price was that accomplished? The peace over there is tenuous at best. So was it worth the loss of life and the billions of dollars spent over there? I hardly think so. So now we are in the same position almost 50 years later for the Vietnam war and over 60 years for the Korean war. Now we can again contemplate where we went wrong. “Different story, same ending”. What will it take for us to get our heads out of our asses?

8/25/2021 12:24 PM

What is the answer with the Taliban and Al Qaeda? It seems that the only way that the Afghan people are going to get any rest and peace is if everyone of these really bad people are exterminated. Would that do any good, or would it just create a vacuum for some other radical Muslim sect to take over? I am glad that I am not the one making these decisions. However the people we currently have making the decisions are not qualified to do this. Since Biden has become president, there has been one blunder after another one made. Our country is now a laughing stock in the international sphere. Our allies are distancing themselves from us, as we can no longer be trusted to keep our word. China is becoming the political and financial powerhouse in the world, as we fumble around with one issue after another with-in our borders; Wokeism, cancel culture, transgender issues, systemic racism, and so on. Our country is becoming divided into many different segments. There is a saying “United you stand, Divided you fall.” Well we certainly are not united. There are several pivotal times in a countries history. One of our main ones were the civil war, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 and now Afghanistan. You say Afghanistan!? Yes Afghanistan, how we handle this crisis will make or break this country. This situation we find ourselves in, and how we handle it, will have repercussions for our future that we can’t even begin to imagine. You may have a lot of feelings about having more unvetted immigrants coming into our country. But we can’t leave behind those people that helped us there, even at the risk of a few bad people slipping in. Because you know that we will find ourselves in another Afghanistan in the future, and if we allow our allies to be slaughtered, there will be nobody to stand with us in the next crisis. England, Canada, France, Germany and Australia are all fed up with us. They think Biden is a joke and Harris is incompetent. And you know what, they are right. So what are we going to do about it? Can the people step in and help our allies, if our government won’t? If we do this we will truly show what our people are made of. If we step in, we would gain some self respect at least, and maybe we could salvage the situation. Because if we allow a goat fucking tribe like the Taliban to make us run with our tail between our legs in August 31st, it is all over. China and the rest of our enemies have won. You know what, they are already winning.

8/30/2021 4:48 AM

Is this continued involvement in local wars across the world, part of a greater plot to tie up our resources, so that we can’t concentrate on the bigger picture? That of global dominance of 5-G wireless and Quantum Computing? You may ask who really cares which power controls these things? Ordinarily it would not really matter. Like 30 years ago it didn’t really matter if a democrat or a republican sat in the president’s seat. It was just two different shades of the same gray color. Both were swamp creatures and both highly corrupt. We now see that this is not the case anymore. It really matters who is in the office. The same holds true with global powers. China wants global dominance with their imperial system of control in place. Does anyone remember Imperialist Japan? Well China is the same but on steroids. Xi JingPing wants total dominance, with the U.S. as but an afterthought. The Chinese tech giant driving the 5-G their bid for control, Huawaei, has built in holes or back doors that gives China control of ever device on the 5-G network. So if the network is Chinese, all the equipment is Chinese. Right down to people’s pacemakers. Qualcomm, an American based 5-G company is our only hope. It sadly is being out funded by China’s government subsidized wireless company. Google is currently the leader in Quantum computing, by a substantial margin, but where do their loyalties truly lie? I will continue with a second posting.

8/30/2021 5:07 AM

Part 2, sorry, I had to break it up, it was getting too long. I want to conclude on a few points. Is the constant control attempts by Big Tech to take away or freedom of speech and the constant theft of our rights of property ownership and due process of the law a means to make us numb? In other words will we be too wiped out to care if we lose our rights, and eventually it won’t matter if our currency is the Dollar or the Renminbi? I don’t know about you, but Xi looks a lot like a young Biden. Biden is a peckerwood, and we know Xi is a peckerwood as well. I am frankly tired of both of their BS plans and actions. I not only think, but I know it is time for a change. Take a look at the poor religious Muslim minority in China, the Uyghurs. Over a million of them are in concentration camps simply for their religious beliefs. So where is the political and religious uproar in the Muslim world? Why aren’t the radicals waging a Jihadist movement to rescue them from Imperialistic China? Because it is all political and it is all about money and corruption. And nobody gives a rats ass about his neighbor or even brother. It is all about me and mine. Finally, I only think that China pays lip service to its population control issues. I think they are using their vast population size as a control method. Every corporation in the world wants to tap into that market. There population also makes it easy to overwhelm surrounding countries. They are like a swarm of locusts. One country alone will alone, soon have a quarter of the world’s population. You tell me that wasn’t by design? An imperialist country too boot.

9/4/2021 11:04 PM

Frankly I am getting tired of the whole Roe versus Wade issue. Does anybody remember prohibition? Did it stop people from drinking? No but it helped organized crime get a foothold in the US. Does anybody remember illegal abortion clinics? Women would die after their abortions, they would just bleed to death. Making abortions is not going to stop truly desperate women from getting them. The whole court decision was unconstitutional because it falls under the preview of states not federal. But that is besides the point. I think the courts should revisit the case and tighten it up some. There needs to be a medical necessity clause in the law. I Frankly believe that a women should be able to decide whether or not she wants the baby in the first trimester. That is a long time to make up your mind. I also belive that there should be a mandatory counseling session before the abortion. I believe if the women knew of the alternative s fewer abortions would be performed. That is my opinion, I am entitled to it. I however will never condem a women for getting one. As a man I can’t possibly know what the woman is experiencing. That is why I don’t believe men should be the ones making the laws involving this uniquely female experience.

9/14/2021 8:32 PM

My wife And I watched the Movie The “lone Survivor,” While we had seen it a while ago, I thought it appropriate to watch it again. I started to think about a few things after watching the movie. I feel that there should be some things that involve our country and who we are, that can’t be changed by a new president. It seems like we are a ship that zig zags across the ocean, changing direction every time we get a new president. No matter we never get anywhere. We have always been known for never leaving anyone behind. This should be inviolable. No president should be able to overturn this mandate. The same goes with our freedoms. The only way to change the Constitution is by amendments. Congress should not be able to pass laws to take those rights away. I know one thing that complacency breeds indifference and eventually leads to loss of your rights and freedoms. A constitutional Republic is the most difficult form of government to maintain, it requires constant vigilance by the citizens of the country to ensure that those in power are kept in check. We have allowed the government to take over too many things in our lives. We need to say enough is enough, we can’t be afraid of our own shadows. In the movie a local village showed more compassion and humanity than our government has in the last few months. The Afghanis have a 2,000 year old code of honor known as Pashtunwali which requires a tribe to undertake the responsibility if safeguarding an individual against his enemies and protecting him at all costs. Where is our code of conduction? How can such a primitive country be more civilized and humane than we are? Now that we have forsaken our allies, will we ever find sanctuary in a foreign land again?

10/20/2021 1:01 PM

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.

11/3/2021 3:58 AM

Most everybody has heard of Roe vs. Wade. I guess you would have to have been born in a cave not to be familiar with it. However does anyone remember what things were like before the landmark case? Every state had different laws regarding the abortion issue. In many states it was illegal , unless it was a case of a life threatening issue. In these cases young women saddled with an unwanted pregnancy sought out the services of back alley hacks or if left no other option used their primitive devices like coat hangers. Many of these young ladies ended up bleeding out in back alleys. Part of the problem back before the Supreme Court case, was our society. Women who became pregnant out of wedlock were ostracized. Times have changed now, and there are more options available to these expectant mothers. Education can play a major part in the choice being made. Abortion is not the only option. But I believe it should still be an option, just with some tighter rules in place. Third term abortions are inherently dangerous and should only be contemplated in the cases of life or death matters. Most women know whether or not they want the baby by the beginning of their second trimester, so this obviates an abortion much later than that. While Roe Vs Wade was a landmark decision, it could have been handled in a much better manner. There are also many people who feel that the Supreme Court had no legal right to even enter in the matter at all. So after several decades we still find ourselves dealing with an issue that could have been solved much earlier.

12/1/2021 9:52 PM

I am all for self determination. A woman should have the right to make decisions regarding her own body. For instance in the case of vaccines. But at what point does a pregnancy become a matter of two lives, not one. Does the woman still have the right of self determination? When does the infant have rights? Too bad God did not give us an ownership manual. I guess he did, most major monotheistic religions have a Bible or like volume that does exactly that. Birth control methods are readily available, for men, condoms and for women, the pill and other methods. Besides we should not be using abortion as a form of birth control. If you are old enough to have sex, you are old enough to know how to prevent a pregnancy. I know no method is 100% effective. So right now we have Roe vs Wade. Which in my understanding was a gross overreach for the federal government. But at the time it was probably necessary, because there were simply too many women dying in street alleys. But that was over 40 years ago. We no longer have the stigma attached to pregnancies that are out of wedlock. There are other alternatives to abortion that won’t mean that your life is going to be destroyed. Adoption is certainly an option. Nowhere in our laws are they saying that abortions that are medically necessary or for cases of rape or incest are illegal. Even if Roe vs Wade is reversed it does not mean that abortions will be illegal. It just mean that it is now up to the states to make that determination. Now that our 50 states are used to having abortion being practiced within their borders, I don’t think that they will make it illegal. They will just tighten up the laws a little. Besides there is always California and New York. You now that these states will always have abortion. The argument that minorities are being discriminated against by these laws is in effect racist. They are giving far too little credit to them. So instead of being divisive be proactive and let us work together to come up with better legislation regarding abortions.

12/27/2021 4:47 AM

After reading the Victor Davis Hanson book, “Ripples of Battle,” I have come to a conclusion about the war in the Pacific during WWII. I think that the estimate of a million American casualties for the invasion of Japan is way too low. The Japanese between combatants and non combatants lost close to 200,000, while we had 49,000 casualties, including 12,000 deaths. When you compare the size of Okinawa to Japan itself, there is no comparison. You also have to know that they would have defended their homeland more ferociously, it was after all, where their emperor lived. Now you can ask the question, did good old Harry do the right thing in ordering the atom bomb to be dropped on Japan? The answer is a resounding yes, it not only saved American lives it also in fact saved Japanese lives as well. The total casualties for both bombs combined was 199,000 right around what was lost in Okinawa. I have already stated that an order of magnitude greater would have been lost in defending their mainland. So hopefully this brief monologue will help you understand the decision that was made by Truman.

I don’t usually discuss the books I read, because who frankly cares what I read, besides myself and my wife. My wife mainly because she has to put up with the ever growing number of bookcases that are spreading throughout our house. LOL But this book is another one I feel that I should share with you, especially if you are interested in our environment. This book is entitled “The Mythology Of Global Warming: Climate Change Fiction vs. Scientific Facts” by Bruce C. Bunker. The book is another eye opener, just like the previous one I mentioned. He discusses each of the green energy sources and how they effect our lives. For one I found the section on ethanol to be particularly interesting. It takes more fuel than it produces to make. Between the farming of the corn and the processing it and so on. It is so expensive that the government has to subsidize it. The farmers love it, because they get to sell the corn for a lot more money. No new land was purchased for the corn, the farmers just reduced the rest of their crops to make room for more corn. So this drove up the cost of feed for our cattle, pigs and chickens, which translates into more money at the grocery store for our meat products. This also affected the price of wheat and corn being grown for oral consumption, because the price up for our loaves of bread and corn and corn based products went up as well. There are so many examples like this in the book, I could go on and on. You really have to read it.

About this Lia Thomas transgender Bullshit, and it is Bullshit, has gotten out of hand. First of all if you were born with female parts you should compete in female sports, unless it is designed as a co-ed sport, and if you are born with male parts you should compete in male sports or co-ed sports. So lets examine this locker room shit a little. They say he is exposing his male parts. How many people take showers with clothes on? How many people wear underwear under their swim suits, especially competitive swimmers, who are trying to be as streamlined as possible? Are the girls covering up their female parts when they take a shower? I think not. Are all 30 odd females totally innocent, who knows. But I know human nature. You have 30 absolutely amazing young healthy bodies in a locker room, I am sure a few are acting out a little. I frankly don’t care and I am not condemning them in any fashion if they are. If the schools really wanted to protect everyone they would have the “male” athletes go into the locker rooms a few minutes earlier and get ready. That solves that problem. The second problem males competing against females. If the guy really wanted to be a female, and wanted to compete on an even field, he needs to go through years of hormone treatments and get surgically altered, end of story. All Lia Thomas is doing is getting a free peep show in the locker rooms and is racking up records and wins against woman competitors. If he was that great of an athlete he should be competing against male athletes.

Why do Hispanic people, or any people leave their country and come to the United States? There are many reasons, of course there is the one of monetary concerns, there is also the freedom that our country allows us to live how we choose. Any person with a strong work ethic and drive can attain pretty much any goal they want. We used to be a country of tolerance of ideas and freedom of speech. This is no longer the case. Now for the rant, be honest you knew it was coming. What the F–k makes you think that when you get here, you can change our country?! If it was so great where you came from, stay the f–k there. Do you ever wonder why our country is so great? it is because we are united as a people. Being united gives us strength to persevere from tyranny. While it is okay to follow your faith, we will die to protect that right, it does not mean that you can spit on our way of life and our country. We are an English speaking country. If I moved to France, do you think the whole country would learn English to accommodate me, hell no?! If I moved to Mexico or Spain would everybody learn English to make my life easier, hell no again?! Would these countries allow me to carve out a section of the country and turn it into my own little America, where I did not follow their rules and laws, again hell no?! So why the F–k do you think it is ok to do that in this country?! If we allow this shit to keep on, our country will collapse, and all those reasons all of you came to America will be gone, and we will just be another third world country run by a dictator like Putin or even worse.

I have been doing a lot of thinking about Ukraine. By all intents and purposes there country is quite wealthy. They are net exporters, They have multiple nuclear power plants including the largest one in Europe. Nuclear power plants cost billions of dollars to build. Also Russia has made it public that they had interests in that country. So why did not Ukraine build up their military? They certainly had the money and the time to do so. Now that they have been invaded yet again, they are begging for military help again. The things that they are asking for, cost millions and billions of dollars. These weapon systems were paid for by US taxpayers. How does that work? It is kind a reminiscent of NATO countries relying on the US to pay for everything, and get protection for free. Maybe they do deserve what they are getting. Did they just think we would step in and do the fighting as well?

I want the my readers to know that this is just a fraction of the postings that I made over the last couple of years. I am getting tired just thinking about.
