While I can’t stand Whoopi Golderg, she is right. The holocaust was not about racism. Judaism is a religion not a race. You can convert to the Jewish belief, just like you can convert to the Muslim faith or the Catholic faith and so on. They were prosecuted mainly because of their religious faith. They were also an easy target and have been so for thousands of years. By practicing their faith at times it makes them an easily visible target.
2/2/2022 12:54 PM
This has been a argument that has been going on for quite a long time. I believe that they are an ethnic group, not a true race. Polish people are not a race either. They were prosecuted by the Nazis in WWII, so were the Gypsies who are also an ethnic group, not a true race. According to the census bureau the following holds true:
White. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. It includes people who indicate their race as “White” or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan, or Caucasian.
Black or African American. A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. It includes people who indicate their race as “Black or African American,” or report entries such as African American, Kenyan, Nigerian, or Haitian.
American Indian and Alaska Native. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment. This category includes people who indicate their race as “American Indian or Alaska Native” or report entries such as Navajo, Blackfeet, Inupiat, Yup’ik, or Central American Indian groups or South American Indian groups.
Asian. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam. This includes people who reported detailed Asian responses such as: “Asian Indian,” “Chinese,” “Filipino,” “Korean,” “Japanese,” “Vietnamese,” and “Other Asian” or provide other detailed Asian responses.
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands. It includes people who reported their race as “Fijian,” “Guamanian or Chamorro,” “Marshallese,” “Native Hawaiian,” “Samoan,” “Tongan,” and “Other Pacific Islander” or provide other detailed Pacific Islander responses.

How do you define ethnicity?
Ethnicity has been defined as: “the social group a person belongs to, and either identifies with or is identified with by others, as a result of a mix of cultural and other factors including language, diet, religion, ancestry and physical features traditionally associated with race”. According to a 2013 census or survey, there were 650 ethnic groups spread throughout 190 countries.

This is a complicated subject that people will continue to argue about for many years. I don’t think either way of thinking is wrong or more right. That is one reason our country is so great, we can have these discussions. Like I said Whoopi got a raw deal. She was censored by the media. So I hope she now sees how it has been to be a conservative in this country. I enjoyed our debate. We both have our reliefs and our reasons for believing the way we do. Until next time.

Does anyone have an issue with American born Eileen Gu competing for China? It is a free country after all. But what gets my ass is that she has been training like most Olympic hopefuls at Olympic training facilities, paid for by American dollars. If she wants to compete for China, move there and let them pay for her training. You can’t enjoy our freedoms and support systems only to flout them by competing against us. How did they convince her to do it? You can’t have your cake and eat it too. While I don’t agree with the death threats being made against her, she certainly should be on the hot seat. What she is doing is wrong and unethical. But what else is new in our society. We have American politicians sleeping with Chinese spies, and our President and his family taking kickbacks from the Chinese as well. Maybe old Eileen knows something we don’t know? Maybe she will get a ring side seat when China becomes the dominant power in the world. Yah right! Over my dead body!
2/24/2022 8:57 pm
Does anybody think that China is like a puppet master who is orchestrating a confrontation between Russia and the US? They can wipe out number one and number three., and take the number one spot with nobody even close to them.
2/26/2022 11:19 AM
Newsmax seems to think that Russia and China will firm an alliance to run the world. I stand by my original analysis. China is using Russia as a pawn, that is what they do.

I am going to provide an excerpt from a blog posting on Putin and Ukraine. History has shown that very few empires are ever able to return to their former glory. “So I want to ask you what the hell Putin thinks he is doing by invading Ukraine. A country firmly entrenched in capitalism. I have been watching the news since Russia invaded that sovereign country, and I have not heard one Ukrainian say he was happy that Russia was coming. As a matter of fact, many have indicated that they would fight to the death to stop them from taking their country over. Governments are supposed to govern at the pleasure of the people, not the other way around. It seems that in the last few years our governments have forgotten this little detail. It also seems when they are reminded of it, like say in Canada, they fight back. I think it is about time that the people stand up for their rights and open up a “can of whoopass”. Why do you think governments try to take away our rights to bare arms? They do so, so that we cannot protect our freedoms, our families and our way of life. Too many people have died to give us those rights. As the self proclaimed guardians of the people’s rights around the world, we owe our brethren those rights too. There are far too few democracies left, for us to let dictatorships take any of them over. We may wake up one day to find that we are the sole democracy left. Take a look at the once capitalist mainstays Canada, New Zealand and Australia for instance, they are now fast turning into socialist countries. Yes Ukraine, may not matter much in the grand scheme of things, but that is precisely why it is so important. Because that is where it all starts.” …..What do you guys think?
3/2/2022 10:12 PM
Does anybody remember that poor woman who got raped in the subway and people just watched and video tapped it? Well our country is doing the same thing in regards to Russia and the Ukraine. I thought what happened in Afghanistan last year was bad. This is even worse. How many Democratic governments are going to fall, before we step in and do something?
3/3/2022 11:15 AM
There is a million dollar bounty on Putin’s head right now. That is chicken feed for a head of state. They will need to up it to 10 million to get any serious bites on doing the job. Because the assassin will have to go into hiding for years to escape retribution. So you fat cats out there get real and serious.
3/3/2022 11:20 AM
3/3/2022 11:36 AM
Who thinks we should be sending our planes over there and bombing the living shit out of that 40 mile long convoy going towards Ukraine? Putin is basically taunting us with it. He is saying that we don’t have the strength of character to attack it. Because anybody that is knowledgeable on tactics and logistics knows that putting all of your resources in such a vulnerable formation is really pretty stupid.

Since Mexico is taking back the southwest portion of the United States, a region that we took from them in the early 1800’s by illegal immigration, why don’t we just migrate up north and take over Canada? We already have Alaska, which is physically part of the Canadian region. Why not take the rest of it. It would be a fair trade. Canada is rich in resources. Though we need to keep the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Yosemite NPs. We would also keep the northern part of California as well.

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.
3/4/2022 5:42 PM
I am willing to pay a little more for gas to hurt Putin. But what pisses me off is that it should never have been an issue. We can ramp up the production if we wanted to. There is no reason to crush our people to help another country.
3/6/2022 4:57 PM
My canines are getting a little dull. I have heard of it, but I am not sure about any diet that is all or none. I believe a balanced diet with moderation is always the best way. My problem was due to previously mentioned medical issues I went out of balance, compounded with little to no exercise and you guessed it I am at a bariatric surgery center.
I know, if Europe and the US wants Russian oil so bad, why don’t we take a couple of plays from good old Putin’s playbook, and invade F–king Russia and simply take it.
3/6/2022 4:58 PM
I also know if we want to balance our budget how about sell some of our oil instead of buying it from dictatorial and antagonistic countries.
3/12/2022 11:28 PM
I am for helping Ukraine out. But we stopped producing oil in our country. Why? So we can sell electric cars? Where does the energy come to charge the damn cars in the first place? If everybody had electric cars our grid would shut down. It takes a lot of juice to charge an electric car. What about road trips across the country? We do not need to paying 5 and 6 dollars a gallon for gas.
3/13/2022 4:06 PM
Really?! that is going to be our answer, No-Fly Zone if Russia uses Chemical Weapons. What the f–king hell!? If they use chemical weapons against Ukraine we need to not only take out Putin but the whole shebang, from the top down. They have already come close to bombing Poland. Is it going to take an invasion of Poland to start another WORLD WAR?
3/13/2022 4:15 PM
So Putin is justifying his invasion of the Ukraine because he says their leaders are Nazis. Does he realize that his communist government is the same damn thing, just with another name? Totalitarianism, no matter what moniker it goes by is the same thing. A total subjugation of the people. We all know that the people have no real say in either China or Russia. The information that they get is totally filtered. Kind of sounds a lot like here. That is how it starts. Brain washing and limited information, or altered information with one goal to push forward the propaganda of the government.
3/28/2022 12:28 PM
The one time that Biden, acts like a leader and not a spineless politician, they say it is a gaffe and that he made a mistake. What a crock of shit. Especially, when the entire free workd feels that, that is what is called for. If the world is to remain safe, leaders like Putin, Kim Yung and Xi Yinping need to be removed from power. They are tyrants and powder kegs, with their fingers on nuclear buttons.
3/28/2022 12:53 PM
If you are having a difficult time understanding what is going on with Ukraine and Russia, we went through the same thing in the 1780s to 1820 with England. We had to fight the English in two wars to finally get our freedom. England even burned our capital and the White House, lest we forget. If not for the French in the Revolutionary War and to a lesser extent in the second war we might still be subservient to England.
3/28/2022 1:00 PM
Why is everyone afraid of Putin? He is nothing but a bully. When we had a strong leader, like president Trump, he behaved. When we had weak leaders liken Obama and Biden, he invaded the Ukraine.
3/30/2022 5:15 AM
The problem is we don’t know what Putin will do if he does take Ukraine, will he be satisfied? History dictates otherwise. Hitler was not satisfied with taking Poland. I think we can lump Putin in the same group. I am just worried that we will find ourselves with a large part of Europe behind a new iron curtain. These tyrants that are ruling China, Russia, Iran, North Korea do not respect anything but strength, resolve and power, all of which have been sorely lacking in our foreign policy decisions in the last year.
3/30/2022 5:16 AM
I just started reading a book I picked up in Goodwill for $2.99, I know it has bee n out for a while but it is really a good book. It should have received more air time then it did. To Save America By Newt Gingrich. It is certainly still relevant today, maybe even more than it was when it was written.
3/30/2022 5:27 AM
Sorry, I was a little vague, sounded better in my head. The point I was making, was that we hot help back then. We should be willing to help someone else in the same situation. I will do better next time. LOL.
3/30/2022 5:28 AM
We all know that no country has had a totally blameless history. The problem today, is that we can’t trust the vast majority of information we get from not only the media, but our government as well. Did we treat Mexico like shit, yes we did. Is Mexico getting back at us, I think so? They eventually will get control of the southwest, just by the sheer numbers of immigrants moving there. They are not assimilating into our culture, because of the incredible numbers of people coming here. So, in answer to your question who should we help? If you are referring to Russia and Ukraine, the obvious answer is Ukraine. I know there is a lot of corruption there. There leader has made some headway in cleaning it up some, but we have to think of all the people that have been uprooted there. What is the reason for it. It was all about greed and envy. You also have to realize that the Russian people really have no clue what is going on.
3/30/2022 5:45 AM
I know one thing, we have to take a stand, we have to decide what we are willing to fight for. It seems that many people have decided that our country is a lost cause. Too many of our relatives and fellow country man throughout our history have sacrificed way too much to keep our country the way it is. We enjoy the freedoms we have because of their sacrifices. Freedom is not free. We have to be ever vigilant. We have not only dictators from other countries trying to crush our country, but we have our own politicians doing the same from within. Big government is never a good thing. I frankly don’t bust my ass every week at work to have the government take the vast majority of my salary for BS causes. I know I am a lot poorer this year, than I was last year. The only reason that we are doing OK, is that we have cut way back on our activities. We no longer go on road trips, because of the gas prices. We have not been able to do any real travel because of all the restrictions due to COVID-19. The problem is that most if not all of this shit was avoidable. Now I am caring around spike proteins in my system, thanks to three Pfizer vaccines, God only knows what they are doing. I do know that I can’t sleep without taking cough syrup, because every time I lay down flat to go to sleep, I start coughing uncontrollably. Is that from the Omicron virus that I caught in January, who knows. Unfortunately, I feel that Life is only going to get a lot harder for all of us in the future, no matter what country we live in.
4/3/2022 9:17 AM
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?
4/12/2022 9:32 AM
Normally I would say, let each country fend for themselves. But Europe has a tendency to drag the rest of the world into their problems. Besides, Putin is not going to stop with Ukraine. It won’t take him long to update his military and try again. Like it or not we are irrevocably intertwined in their affairs. We just can’t afford to have Europe fall under the control of Russia. We have few allies as it is.
4/18/2022 10:11 PM
There has been a lot of talk about us sending troops over to the Ukraine to help out. Let me put it in perspective by asking a couple of questions. Who thinks we did the right thing by fighting in Europe against Hitler? We could have let England and France fight it out with Germany and just fought Japan. My second question is what do you think Putin will do after he finishes in Ukraine? Even though he did not get the whole country, he pretty much has the most important parts. We need to think of this invasion along the lines of Grenada was for us. I mean it in the way that it was a learning experience for us. We found out what our weaknesses were and it helped us become a more effective fighting force. While Russia did not impress much in the last few months, if they take the appropriate lessons and actions, this war will make them an even more formidable fighting unit. Because Putin will not stop with Ukraine, he will continue on, and he will be more effective next time around.
So Fauci said that the Federal Courts are not qualified to make a decision about wearing masks. How f–king condescending can you get? He is saying that these highly educated and intelligent people cannot read and comprehend a scientific study. What a prick. Fauci who changed his mind on masks as often as he changed his socks.

Politicians wonder why crime is on the rise. How stupid can they be? Unless it involves rape or murder, or armed robbery. Ie. A bank hold-up, cops don’t for the most part, pursue the case. So there are no repercussions for their actions. If the police arrest them, it is thrown out by liberal courts anyway. So we have little choice but to protect ourselves. Eventually what is going to happen is that neighborhoods are going to unite and form vigilante groups and take matters into their own hands. It has happened in the past, if things don’t change it will happen again. So let the police and the local authorities take note. They need to act. I for one am tired of being a victim.

How do you destroy America from within?
- Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual.
- Invent “multi-culturalism” and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal, that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds. The American “melting pot” of many to make a united America, “E Pluribus Unum” – from many – one, will become obsolete.
- Celebrate diversity rather and unity. Diversity did not make this nation great, unity of individuals did. Rugged individualism, when threatened, brings Americans together in unity. WWI and WWII were not won by different languages and customs, they were won by united Americans.
- Make the fastest growing demographic group the least educated. Add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. This second underclass would have a 50% dropout rate from high school.
- Get big foundations and business to give these efforts of diversity and ethnic identity lots of money. Establish the cult of victimology. Get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. Start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.
- Include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. All minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority.
- Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of diversity. Hurling words about like “racist” or “xenophobe” halts discussion and debate.
- Develop a mantra: Because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. Make every individual immigrant sympathetic and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”
- Make it impossible to enforce our existing immigration laws.
Do these statements above ring a bell?
5/7/2022 12:56 AM
I love how all the radicals are going crazy about Roe Vs Wade. First of all the Supreme Court had no business even messing with the issue. It was supposed to be handled by each state individually. Second even if it is reversed it will not ban abortions. In states like California and New York, nothing will change, they will still allow abortions. It is also true it will; be banned in some states. I know that traveling to a blue state my be an imposition, but having an abortion should not be as easy as going to buy a pack of condoms, either. It should not be a decision that is rushed into or taken lightly. Maybe a little road trip is just what the doctor called for. It will give the expectant mother the time to do some soul searching and to see if that is truly what she wants to do.

I want to propose a little alternate history. What if President Trump had been elected to his second term? We are assuming that the Democrats were not successful in stealing the election. What would have happened? Well we would never have had the January 6th debacle or would we? I think It might still have happened but the Democrats would be on the other side of the fence. Also Trump would not have been impeached a second time, at least not for that reason. We also have another event that took place, a second election in Georgia for the two Senator seats. Would the outcome have been different? Did fewer voters turn out because they were so disappointed on Trump losing? I think that might have been the case. I think both senate seats would have went for the Republicans, also because I don’t think that they would have tried to cheat like they did, a second time.
So where does that leave us? It still leaves the Democrats firmly in charge of the House, the Republicans would have the Senate now, and because the Supreme Court would not be afraid of Congress, they would be in control of it as well. Trump would have appointed a fourth Supreme Court Justice, and Roe Vs Wade would definitely have been overturned. We would still have a small force in Afghanistan, we would still be energy independent, Russia and China would both still be cooling their heals. We would not have any border problem or problem with Fentanyl overdosing, as the wall would have been quickly finished. Crime in the Democratic run cities would still be a headache for Trump. The House would still be trying to impeach him for anything at least until 2026, when they would lose the House to the Republicans. At this time Joe and Hunter Biden would be indicted for fraud and embezzlement and Hillary would also be indicted finally, for her hard drives and her involvement in the Russia hoax. We would have more countries in the Middle East signing the peace agreement. The Iranian people would wage a coup and take over the government, and become a constitutional monarchy. We would bail out Venezuela and they would have an election where the socialist party would be ousted. Everywhere you looked the Communist party would be experiencing reversals. COVID-19 mandates would have long been removed and our country would be over the pandemic as it became endemic along with the flu.
Woke would be just a memory, the protection provided by Section 230 would have been removed from the Internet companies like Facebook and Twitter, so things would be gradually changing there. With things turning around in the country and the population finally becoming unified as Trump mellows out a little and becomes more polished in his presentation. He no longer has anything to prove so he can afford to be more magnanimous especially in the last two years of his second term. We finally started shrinking the deficit due to some Trumpian-like business negotiations. We are no longer paying on debts older than 50 years., which helped reduce the deficit and the amount of interest paid. We also sued China for COVID-19 and erased all of our debt to them as reparations. We have reached new levels of prosperity, and in the first time of recorded history we have had a few months of total peace, where nobody was actually fighting or waging a war. We took all the money spent on WHO and the UN and started helping rebuild the infrastructure in other countries thereby further reducing the impact China has had with their belt and road initiative.
What do you think, sound plausible? Certainly a nicer future than the one we are experiencing now.
5/14/2022 11:07 PM
I want to ask a question, how many of you would take out a loan and give the money to your neighbor as a gift so he could by a car? Well that is what we are doing for Ukraine by giving them the $40 billion. We can’t balance our budget, which means we have to borrow money to make up the difference. Let f__king Ukraine borrow there own damn money.
I have been listening to the rhetoric being produced by the left about my body my right. Well, pretty much in any state if a pregnant women is murdered the killer is charged with 2 deaths, not one. So in the eyes of the law the bady is considered to be a distinct individual. So the argument of my body my right does not hold any water, according to the law. Anybody with any constitutional knowledge knows that the Supreme Court over stepped their mandate by deciding the case Roe vs Wade. The left also knows that each state has laws in place regarding abortions, which is what they will default to when and if it is repealed. I am all for abortion if it is to save the mother’s life or if it is a case of rape or incest, however, studies show that this amounts to only one percent of all the abortions. So what is the issue? When did abortion become a substitute for birth control? Why are we pushing highly dangerous trimester abortions? Even post Partum abortions? The answer is organ harvesting, especially the liver. I am not saying this is every case, but the numbers are alarming. If you are mature enough to have sex, you are mature enough to take precautions. Besides, there are always options for the unwanted pregnancy, adoptions are a good way to turn an unfortunate event into a blessing. And besides who knows you may want to keep the baby after all. The whole wonderful experience of childbirth makes a lot of women contemplating adoption to change their minds. I know one thing, there is no coming back from an abortion. Also, there have been psychological studies on women who had abortions, and the vast majority of them regret it. If you are unsure about what to do, seek help and counseling.
They promised it would only be 1 percent. What pisses me off the mist is that they tax overtime at a higher rate. So they are penalizing those who are trying to get a head in the world. While I am not complaining, because nobody forced me to eat that last donut or what have you. So I have nobody to blame but myself for my weight. Now that it has become a health issue, do you think my health insurance company would help out, not a chance? I had to take out a personal loan for my bariatric surgery. Since I only have a week of PTO built up, I will have to take unpaid leave for 4 weeks. So I am picking up overtime to get ahead. Well of course Uncle Sam wants his share, asshole. So I am putting it out their to all the people that go through our neighborhood trying to steal our gas and catalytic converters and other stuff, to please give my house a f__king break for a change.
I have noticed people’s comments on police training and Also raising children. This is a touchy subject. First of all I belive raising children is the responsibility of the parents, not the schools. Schools have stuck their noses in too far in the business of the parent’s today. One key thing is that children should show some respect for authority and that includes the police. With that being said the police can help out some to. I don’t care what people say, police can always use more training and practice. How else are they going to grow? We need some uniformity in training, with specialized training specifically honed for their region. They should also have CEUs every year, and scenario training. The more the better.

I remember my 13 years of pre college school. Most of the stuff I use today was learned by 7th grade. I frankly have not used, trig, calculus, or a lot of the other crsp I was taught. This is true for a large portion of the population. A good part of first college run was a water as well. Not until I went back to get my nursing degree, did my schooling prepared me for work. So I do think home schooling is an option, because let’s face college is not what it used to be. Technical schools are a better option for a lot of people. At least they would have skill.

“My Body My Right” What has our world come too? Are we animals with no moral compass or ability to control our urges and sexual desires? Women say they don’t want to be solely responsible for birth control. Yet they want to be solely responsible for the decision on whether or not to keep the unwanted pregnancy. Have women forgotten, that they have total control in a mutually consensual sexual experience? Trust me, if the man wants to have sex badly enough, he will wear protection. Don’t give in to his excuses. If no protection is available at that time, simply abstain, we are not animals and we can control our urges and desires. Stop making excuses and blaming the rest of the world if they find abortion reprehensible and amoral. Once the heart is beating and the infant opens its eyes it is a unique and separate life form. I am not against all abortions. There are certainly times when it is acceptable, but the vast majority of these abortions are because the people involved could not be bothered with birth control. That is not a valid reason for having an abortion. If it was inconvenient to use birth control, why should the new life growing in your womb pay the price? Remember when a women and child are murdered, it is considered a double homicide, not a single one. This is telling the world that our legal system recognizes that there are two distinct lives present. The left is trying to minimize the importance of being pregnant. Remember only half the population can do it. Bearing children is a sacred right and should be treated as such. We need to stop dehumanizing it. By using rage to drive their points home they are making it impossible for reasonable thought to take place. Long after the moment is over and the baby has been aborted is when the sadness and regret will set in, but it will be too late then. This is not a game of golf with Mulligans, it is real life, with real repercussions to your actions. I just want people to stop and think and use reason. The sexual act should never be taken lightly. Unprotected sex has real dangers, remember that.

So Biden says it is willing to go to war with China to protect our interests in Asia. I am sure they are quaking in their boots. We can’t feed our babies, we are over 30 trillion in debt. Which in part is to China. Well over half our manufacturing comes from them. We have cut military spending, we have left billions of dollars in weapons in Afghanistan, and we are depleting our military by sending it to the Ukraine. Is he stupid. I can’t think of a time we were less prepared to go to war since Carter’s presidency. Not to mention China is the most dangerous foe we have ever faced. They have been plotting against us since they became a communistic country.

I know we have had problems with mass shootings in the past. However, I think it has gotten worse recently. So let me think, what has changed in the last 30 or so years? Our educational system for one. If you start teaching a confused curriculum mixed with inappropriate content, with a dash of intolerance and self loathing when no one is looking, what kind of young adults are we going to get? How about mass shooters. I don’t usually agree with Jeraldo Rivera about anything, but he made a valid point, why do need to be 21 to buy alcohol, but you can buy a handgun at 18. Maybe, we should give them three more years to mature before they can do so?

Why can an 18 serve in our military and lose their life defending this country? I’m just spit balling here but when that said 18 year old serves chances are they will be carrying a weapon.
Jeraldo also called it an assault rifle!

About the Texas elementary school shooting, what an absolute horrific disaster. I feel so bad for the parents and the community. This has to stop. In a previous posting, I mentioned that with the exclusion of 18 years old teenagers entering the military, most of them are still immature. So maybe we need to have an exclusion, that non vets need to be 21 years of age to buy any firearms? I was looking at our education system. When did the bachelor degree start becoming a starting point for just more education? Why do you need a graduate degree to run a company or to even be considered for an entry level job? Most universities are just glorified high schools, by that I mean it is a way to delay maturation for four more years. That is why young adults mature later now. Not only are they going to school longer, they are completing in many cases, useless undergraduate degrees that only lead to more education. Due to this shift to higher education instead of better training and earlier family building, our family units are becoming smaller and in some cases non existent. It is becoming more and more common for couples to opt out of child raising altogether. Mainly because by the time they get a good paying career, they are already near the end of the typical childrearing age range. How many people want to be changing diapers in their fifties? I am a big proponent of 1st and 2nd amendment rights. But if our people are not mature enough to handle the responsibility of owning a firearm, maybe a little longer wait is in order. You have to be a certain age to get your unrestricted driver’s license. You have to be 21 to buy alcohol and the age requirements go on, there are even age limits for running for Congress. Road blocks are being put in front of every step that children take in growing up. All this transgender crap, and woke nonsense, and racism and so on that is being foisted on elementary school children, no wonder they are confused and angry. We are making them that way. Growing up is hard enough without adults instilling their agendas on our children.

We can track many of our mental health woes to the Reagan presidency when he closed a lot of the facilities that were housing the mentally ill. Most of them became homeless. We never seemed to have recovered from that. They have been pushed aside and overlooked for decades. Now with school system turning mentally deranged kids by the droves we are in a really bad way. Where do we start?

Hannity interviewed Pence. I can’t figure him out. He had only good things to say about Trump. I think he has made a living by not making waves and going with the flow. I don’t think he has a backbone.

It is all about brainwashing and confusion. If people are unsure of their roots, identity and sense of worth they are easier to control.

15-YEAR-OLD SCHOOL KID WHO GOT AN A+ FOR THIS ENTRY:
THE LORD’S PRAYER Is not allowed in Public schools any more. A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following NEW School Prayer:
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene..
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all..
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the State.
We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks…
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong..
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles…
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
In Jesus name,

The following is an excerpt from a book written by Sean Spicer , “Radical Nation.” The book so far is a surprise. Is well written and a joy to read with lots of information. This particular excerpt is probably the best explanation I have come across why tax increases hurt the economy. It is a bit lengthy for FB, but please bare with me, I think you will find it worth the time. “In 1991Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell of Maine persuaded George H.W. Bush to sign a budget deal that included a 10% tax on luxury items costing $100,000 or more. This tax became known as the ‘yacht tax.’ There’s a wise old saying that Democrats repeatedly ignore: ‘You get less of what you tax and more of what you don’t.’
In the years before the tax was enacted, American boat builders were annually producing up to 16,000 yachts costing $100,000 or more. One year after the yacht tax was passed, that number sank to 4,250. The state of Rhode Island lost 12,000 jobs, that were directly or indirectly tied to yacht sales. Sean’s father ‘s brokerage business was devastated–and so was Sean, because he worked in a boatyard during the summer, cleaning and maintaining boats. The tax took a heavy toll on his income.
The yacht tax was supposed to soak the rich. But the rich didn’t get soaked–they just stopped buying yachts. Who got hurt? Working people–people like Sean.” ( the only thing I changed was the tense from 1st to 3rd person). I hope you found this as illuminating as I did.

Over the decades fads have come and gone. Many have been unhealthy like everybody trying to emilate people like Twiggy. But I think now with these abnormal body proportions for women, we have gone too far. Women out there, men are simple in there needs and wants. You are doing these things to yourselves out of some vane attempt at reaching perfection. If you want to improve your life and looks, you need to love yourself first. Look in the mirror, what you see was given to you by God, I think he did pretty good, now you have to feel the same way.
The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races.
Last month I attended a training. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.
After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:
‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ” Nonbelievers”
I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’
He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’
I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’
The Muslim was speechless.
I continued, ‘I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’
You could have heard a pin drop.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the US. to elect the President.
I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.

The problem is not with any religion, most major religions teach tolerance and love. The problem lies with people who take every word literally and become fanatics. If you study history, you will know this to be true. Even with Hinduism, the “haves” do much better than the “have nots”, or in their case, the caste system. If the Catholic religion were perfect, would you have had the split with the Greek Orthodox Church, and the break with the Protestants to just name a few? What all religions have in common is the that holy words are interpretations by humans. No deity actually wrote the books, or prayers in their own hand.
I am sitting in my hotel room contemplating my bariatric surgery tomorrow, and I have come to the conclusion as I am choking down my absolutely disgusting plain yogurt, why there are so many fat people in the U.S. healthy food tastes like shit. Why does eating healthy feel like I am paying penance?
Rebecca Murray unfortunately my life changed, opportunities for hiking became fewer. There were always some scheduling issues. As you age, your energy levels diminish. In January 2020, my wife and I joined a gym, well you know what happened there. I even bought a nice indoor training bike, but my ankles started hurting so bad that I could barely walk at work. I still have not figured out why. I used to ride hundreds of miles a week when I trained for my Triathlons. I never had that problem. Trust me the surgery decision was not taken lightly, it is especially problematic since my insurance company doesn’t pay for it. I had to take out a personal loan to pay for it. Thank God my sign on bonus will eventually pay for most of it.
Thanks guys. It was not an easy decision, but when I went over the 300lb mark and started getting short of breath when I went for walks with my wife, I had enough. Because of IBS, I have a real problem eating a lot of fruits an vegetables, so I relied way too heavily on carbs. I had already limited myself to one glass of soda a week, no candy, little to no junk food. Nothing was working. I can empathize with all you out there with weight-loss issues. Thanks again.

Why do fanatics always think their way is the best and only way? They become so blinded by their ardor that they are willing to destroy their businesses and livelihood to push their agenda. Take for instance Disney World. Only a small percentage of the people in this country agree with the far left’s agenda, and those are the people that would not be caught dead in Disney World. So what gives, can anyone tell me this?
I guess that there are certain basic beliefs everyone has that they won’t change their mind on. For instance, A belief that rape is not acceptable no matter what the circumstances. I also believe that a man is a man, based on genetics and a women is a women also for the same reasons. Neither is better, just a little different. I also believe that killing is only acceptable in the case of self defense, either for yourself or to protect your loved ones. Most people also have their own immutable beliefs. However, I am willing to listen to both sides of an argument and if one side makes more sense I will and have changed my mind. Can fanatics on the left or even the right say the same? I don’t know the answer to that one.
Randy Landry exactly. Is it our responsibility to change each others minds? Idk, maybe.
The only thing we can do, really, is plant the seeds of truth, and pray they take hold.
That is by having non-judgmental conversations with each other, and by listening to each others points of views, calmly and rationally.
I can’t understand why ppl become so triggered, to the point of violence, in some instances, when their beliefs are challenged.
It’s okay to challenge beliefs, with logic, and facts; but it’s not okay to aggressively attack ppls beliefs because they don’t go along with our own.
What I think really sucks is the division about EVERYTHING that is plaguing the world. Even the marketing is geared towards encouraging the foolishness; for example Twix and their stupid right/left advertisements.
It’s a huge conspiracy designed to keep us choosing sides.
Dems vs republican, Vax or no Vax, guy vs straight, and on and on. If we are constantly having to choose between two sides of the same coins, we won’t ever win.
Even when we agree, or are on the same “side” ppl still feel the need to micro-manage others, if they may disagree on a minute point.
It all comes down to disrespecting the philosophy of “live and let live”.
