GET BACK IN THE GROOVE AMERICA

SAT. AUG. 8, 2020

OK folks. Time to get off your lounge chair and get back to life as we know it. This virus has been hijacked and used to damage our economy. Now it's time we fought back. Never mind the backyard over-the-fence bitching. We didn't win two World Wars, one against three nations at once, by hanging around gabbing.

Get out in the streets and do some non-violent gathering and tell the Antifa & Socialists of the Democratic Party that we will not be pushed aside. This is our Country and we will do whatever we can, whatever we have to, to bring back our Constitutional Republic. 

No more  violence and looting will be tolerated. We are ready, willing and able to attend our Religious meetings. We are ready, willing and able to start back to work. Our children are ready, willing and able to get back to school. Keeping them out of school is an attack on their education, while also an attack on our economy. 

We've sat back long enough and watched our world torn apart. Anti-Capitalism Mayors and Governors are using their power and authority to destroy our Democracy. They are hijacking our Freedoms and Liberty's. They are attacking our Freedom of Religion and our right to give our children the necessary educational tools to grow and enjoy the world we ourselves enjoyed growing up; and to protect themselves from the very protestors they have supported they will take away our guns to dismantle our ability to defend ourselves while they have their own private security paid from our tax dollars.

These individual City and State Leaders are  exploiting the "States Rights" to attain their goal. The stupidity they do not show is that they are being used to destroy their own power and authority. There will no longer be "States Rights". Once Capitalism is over-come they will fall under the power and authority of those that have been encouraging and supporting them. It will be "one world order" as George Soros, Hillary Clinton, China, Iran, Russia and those with them have wanted for a long time. 

The United States of America will be just another little spot on the globe. Our natural resources will be pillaged. Our spirit will be broken, our children will be slaves. There will be no more Religion, no more free speech. Education will be given to a specific few chosen by the powers that be. Working trades will be allotted to the lesser in our society as determined by the power holders. We will be separated by skin color and by ethnic origin. What little we earn will be given to the large worldly government, and we will be left with a small stipend to feed our families. 

Now, my friends, if you think this is unbelievable, if you think this cannot happen to America; you had better wake up!!! We have been spoiled. We have been so ensconced in our good life that we have taken it for granted. The time has come to get out of our safe little cocoons and fight this scourge on our Nation and our Free Society. We have been the envy of all others; and now they are trying adamantly to overtake us. They seem to think by doing this they will have the wonderful life that our Founders forged for us.

But they do not have the will nor the intelligence; they do not have the attitude (if you will) to properly maintain the Republic that we have. They only know to force their opinions on those that show weakness. The have not the confidence, nor the fortitude, of we in the United States of America, to properly govern so many by so few.

At this time our Government is trying desperately, while staying within our Constitution, to thwart these Anarchists that will do everything possible, including murder, destruction of property and violence to attract those among us who are weak and unknowing of what they are fighting for.

It is called Democratic Socialism. It is a way of life that has been strongly indoctrinated on our University campuses, and directly to our young within their classrooms. They know of nothing else. Capitalism has been portrayed as a winner take all society.  Much the same as we see on our Professional Sports teams. The arrogance and selfish attitude is carried over to the youth in the stands and the fans on the street.

We see this in our Justice System. Attorneys and Prosecutors determine their ability and status within their community by the wins and losses they acquire in the Court Rooms. No matter if their "wins" put a murderer or rapist back on the street. The important thing to them is that they won.

Witness the behavior of many a District Attorney. They favor the folks who will help to move them up the ladder within their community of so-called justice. The criminal activity that has occurred within our own Government should be an eye-opener to us all.

And many of those that have backed off from accusing them, have done so out of the fear of exposing their own involvement and support, and loss of their own status.

We must, I repeat, WE MUST stand up now. Literally stand up. Help our Government, help our local Police and National Guard as they push back on the Anarchism. I am not advocating we physically join the fight. Just by showing up physically behind those that will defend our freedom, we display our own kind of voice and opposition to what they are striving to do.

And those that we stand behind will fight even harder for us, as they always have, to defend our Freedoms, our Rights, our Liberty's and the life we have so strongly fought for through the World Wars of our past.

Let our Police and our Military know we are behind them. Let them know we need them and will do whatever we can to support them.

STAND UP AMERICA ~~~ STAND UP WITH THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR US!!!!!!

ECONOMICS MUST BE CONSIDERED IN NOVEMBER ELECTION


Jean Coulard

Aug. 3, 2020

I guess we can all agree that Economics was probably one of the more difficult areas in school. But as Adults now we can fully understand the importance of it in our daily lives. It is the backbone of our Society. The bottom line in our survival. We all have a certain level of knowledge pertaining to our economical situation.

It's rather simple; either we grow our own vegetables and animals for sustenance, or we purchase these items from a Farmer or a store. Now, growing such items is not always feasible in a City environment. Even in the outlying Country it is not always easy. One must depend on the weather and other support to help maintain and grow these necessities. 

The simple way to understand how we survive: We work for the Farmer to help him grow and raise what we need for sustenance. He pays us to work, and we in turn pay him for what we buy. A simple circular system where we all help each other.

An Entrepreneur gets an idea and invents a product. He builds his invention and sells it to us. He needs some of us to work for him and help build the item. He pays us to work, and then we have money to buy his product.

It couldn't be more simple. And I don't understand why simple people don't get it.

Could it be because they are more interested in the power and fortune they are able to obtain through a Political career? 

Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, the Clintons and Bidens have all shown their willingness to do and say anything for the perks of Political life. And I suspect they are all bowing to the will and financial support of one George Soros to achieve their goals. Of course George Soros is not the only support they have. Probably many favors were owed to a certain Mr. Epstein, and it is now being discovered that China is a rather substantial financial supporter of many Democratic Party members.

Understand of course that I do not discount that many other Politicians from various parties are also receiving financial perks and favors from Mr. Soros, from China and previously from Mr. Epstein. It seems to be a way of life for them. It follows also that, being aware of all this, many are hesitant to hop on the bandwagon of those attempting to prosecute their fellow Politicians for fear of exposing their own connections.

Well now, that leaves you and I in the middle, doesn't it?

So how do we rectify this situation where the "children" in our Government are having a world class struggle for power and position. The lies and hypocrisy are a true standard of a little child being caught with their hand in the proverbial 'cookie jar'! 

Perhaps it is time to put one in the corner with a Dunce hat. Now the only weapon we have to accomplish this is our vote. Our words and actions fall on deaf ears. Although I must say the Socialist Democrats are being rather overbearing with their rhetoric and behavior.

As I have admitted before, I have supported the Republicans in the most recent Elections and that was because I saw them as the lesser of two evils. Well, no surprise I see the same thing now. I have been trying to search out information from several news productions. I have read the stories and found their lack of validity; but I have also found the reversals and admissions of the truth. We all know it is hard to find a redaction of any story. But one must look and listen with an open mind. And one must be able to accept the truth. The truth will be the savior of our Constitutional Republic.

The Trump Administration has done much to help our Nation. There is no doubt about that. And he and his supporters and staff have uncovered many lies and false actions by their competition. That is blatantly obvious. It is becoming more and more clear as time goes by that the Trump enemies are responsible for the protests and violence we are having in the Streets of America.

Trump is a unique individual in many ways. And I feel that his backers and supporters are aware of his demeanor and background. He is successful, he is brash, he is not afraid to voice his opinion. Many of his actions and words are in defense against the enemy he faces. He has been able to stand against the brutal attacks against his Administration. He has weathered a ferocious storm. Having been able to do this, I am sure, is the reason he was chosen to run in the 2016 Election.

Now the enemies of Trump and our Constitutional Republic have chosen VP Biden to run in the Presidential Election of 2020. We are all aware that it has been carefully and visciously crafted with the express intent to   demonize Trump the individual. Most of their mistakes have been the overwhelming brazen actions they have taken. But one glaring and obvious thing has come to my attention. Mr. Biden was intentionally kept out of the public eye for some time. During that time, and seeing the changes in Biden, I can only conclude that he was under the close supervision of medical experts as they put him on one of the many "miracle pills" on the market today that rejuvenates our mental capacities.

Now this is not  illegal. Many of our elite Government officials use them also. Many athletes and entertainers have also been on such medication. But it is substantially obvious with the change in Biden's behavior.

Now, it is crucial that we keep in mind that, although the physical attributes of the Brain may change and improve, it will not have a great affect on the emotional or private preferences of the person. He will still subscribe to his Left-leaning, Socialistic tendencies. He will still be aligned with China, Soros, and all the others he benefited from during his many lack-luster and fruitless terms in Government. 

No matter your Political leanings of the past, now we must all do what is absolutely necessary to maintain our Freedoms, Liberties and Rights as written in our Constitution. America will not survive under any form of Socialist Government. Especially not the "Democratic Socialism" that many generations of our youth have been educated within and indoctrinated to by the Liberal Socialistic Professors within our Educational system.

It simply will not work, and our Nation and it's ideals will be fractured. It would be a gross setback of Civilization to many Centuries past.

WHAT LOGICAL SENSE DOES IT TAKE TO SEE THE REAL TRUTH???

 

Jean Coulard     July 24, 2020

 I am continuously pondering the answer to that question. For over three years now, after the 2016 Election, I have had my fingers crossed. Did I make a good decision? Will things be alright? Or is he really the "... most dangerous President..."?

Well, my first response will be that I believe I made a good decision. So far things have been upbeat and positive; until this darn Pandemic hit. My mind is still out on that monster (was it intentional)?

I do not, and can not in good sensibility, consider Trump to be a dangerous President as the Leftist Liberals in the Democratic Party like to call him. His administration has accomplished too many good policies to be anything but good.

I am not going to exercise my natural Human paranoia and look at everything as a conspiracy, or something like  a reverse psychology. Conspiracies and emotional psychological meanderings should not be entertained in something so serious as the choosing of the leader of the Western World. Facts and truth must be found. They can be if one were to research thoroughly the Congressional voting records of the individual Representatives in the Legislative Department. Also, when they are seeking office we should research in depth their personal background. 

Our World is getting smaller every day. With the highly improved communication capabilities we have gotten closer and closer to other Countries, other Nations and other Societies.

Since the President of the United States of America is considered the Leader of the Western World, one must realize the responsibility we have with our vote. We are not just choosing our very own Leader, we must also consider those who rely on us for strength and hope. I repeat my very own words when I say “ …. America has become the First Responders for the less fortunate in the World today ….. ”.

I find it increasingly difficult to understand the reasoning behind the many in the House of Representatives who push forth an agenda that appears to be so in-Humane and un-American.

They seem to regale around ideas that are not sustainable, while at the same time they present an agenda that is not affordable. I do not see them aiding the current administration with the fight against the terrible virus. I do, however, see many discrepancies in the reporting of cases and the results of treatment and testing.

 I do not see an agenda that would get our children back to school; while all experts in the field inform us it is the most important thing to do for future generations. Pediatricians also are pushing to get the children back into the classroom setting, not only for education, but also for the social health of the child. And I see the added benefit of getting the parents back to work. 

What I do see is the Liberal Socialists pushing to keep America from working, something that would have a serious affect on our Economy. It is very obvious to me that this has all become Political on both sides. But how does one fight the “politicizing” of a subject, without also adding more “politicizing”.

Perhaps this virus was an accident. If so, then I believe further that it was advantageous to keep it quiet and behave exactly as the China Government did. China’s reaction to it was a direct hit on our tremendously expanding Economy. The fact that it was a new member in the virus family, and very little was known about it, did not help at all. Our Government officials and the Scientists were learning as they went. Several agendas underwent change back and forth. We are still learning. But we must get back our Economy. And it has been accepted by the majority that our schools must open, and guidelines must be implemented and followed. 

aside:       State’s rights MUST be followed. No question about that. However, it appears to me that they are being abused for the sake of Liberal Socialism.

BLACK LIVES MATTER: JUST ANOTHER FALSE NARRATIVE


Jean Coulard   July 21, 2020

Black Lives Matter started out as a definitive and legitimate organization, but like many others has been taken over and infiltrated by the "goons" supported and encouraged by the Leftists within the Democratic Party. The true Democratic Party of years ago would never, in my opinion, have backed such behavior. I refer of course to the average, every-day Democrats that can be found on the streets of America, in the neighborhoods and in the Malls.

However, if you research the voting record of the Party, you will uncover the greatest fraud perpetrated on the American people since the mid 1800's. I am referring to the Democratic Party established in 1854. This is, I believe, the group that broke from the Jefferson Republican Democrats. They are the originals that supported the KKK, and many other slavery supporting organizations. I believe they splintered into many local groups that quietly and secretly fought to continue slavery. 

A thorough research has shown me that the public face of the Party exhibited an anti-slavery message; and while many of the 'bills' they outwardly supported and promoted were actually only a ruse. If you follow through with the voting records, you will see that the actual votes by these 'Democrats' were against the 'bills' put forth originally that were supposedly against Slavery.

Fast forward to today, and you can see the deception has been brought to the forefront. They are so desperate to move forward they have now begun to use openly those they indoctrinated over the past fifty years through our Education Department. Russia's own Nikita Khrushchev boasted, many years ago, that they will  "....conquer us from within...."!

Our greatest weapon will be our voice to inform those believing the current deception, followed by our vote. We cannot allow this outdated perception from the past change the American way of life. Millions upon millions of Immigrants have made the dangerous and arduous journey to our shores in the hopes of sharing with those already here, this free society.

Yes, Black Lives Matter, and so do all others, including the many who have fought for the continuation of our Freedoms and Liberties, and our Rights afforded us by the Constitution. 

Do not let the Anarchists among us take away our dreams. It is time once again to fight for our Nation, for our Flag, for our very life.

Stand up and show your true colors. Show the true American strength and courage.

WHAT YOU GET DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE! ! ! ! 


Jean Coulard    July 18, 2020

I am referring to the News of course. Having friends and family in New York,  Long Island, So. Carolina, Dallas, Texas and Florida I do get a wide range of stories.

Did you know that just yesterday two women attempted to paint over the BLM sign painted on a New York street in front of the Trump Tower? Yes, the one that Mayor DeBlasio and friends had just painted on Friday afternoon. Well, these two were promptly arrested for whatever crime DeBlasio could come up with. And he and his "friends" came back immediately and repainted the areas they had covered.

The two women luckily fell under the recent new criminal Law reform and were released.

IS THE VIRUS STILL FEROCIOUSLY SNEAKING AROUND?????

Florida's spike in the virus has been widely and loudly reported by the Media, as they continue their efforts to support the Left in attacking our Economy. Keeping schools closed would be devastating to our workforce, and as reported by many Pediatricians, would be severely harmful to the children. It has now been discovered that the positive testing has been inflated by 1000%! ! ! Serious 'mistakes' have been found in the laboratories, prompting further and deeper investigations.

I was under the impression that the warm weather would deter that little "son-of-a-gun" as it would dissipate with the warm weather! ! ! 

BORDER PATROL TO THE RESCUE ! ! 

The head of the DHS has initiated a task force to operate in the sanctuary cities where officials are not detaining illegals with criminal records to be deported. I will spare you the details, but this initiative was included in the recent Executive Order by President Trump. The violence and destructive acts seriously affecting citizens have been ongoing for too long; the violators are being released before the paper work can be done by the Police. They are back on the streets having a good ole time and encouraged by DeBlasio.

KANGAROO COURTS BACK???

A Republican Senator from Missouri has requested that the DOJ investigate the District Attorney in the case of Mr. & Mrs. McClosky, in St. Louis,  being indicted for protecting their home. The D.A. claims they intimidated (for lack of a better word) the protestors. I am under the impression the DOJ will be acting.

Maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel. Let us continue praying.

LEFT LIBERAL POLITICIANS BUYING BLACK VOTE


Jean Coulard    JULY 17, 2020

 Another unbelievable ploy by the Left Liberal Socialistic Democrats. They will stop at nothing; they will do anything in their power, to buy the Black vote! And many of the Black community, especially those that do not pay close attention to what is truly going on in Washington, D.C., nor do they care, are believing it.

Today I see that Senator Schumer of New York has proposed a bill that would allocate three hundred fifty billion dollars ($350,000,000,000.) to be invested in the Black community in reparation for losses caused by the Pandemic!

For those of you living in the Black community, or have friends or family from the Black community, please have conversations and discuss the blatant lies that are being put upon the community. Speak also of the many Black leaders that are talking out against the lies and false hope of the Left, and encourage all to tune in to them. LIFE, LIBERTY AND LEVIN has very interesting guests, also HANNITY and TUCKER CARLSON are among those trying to spread the word of honesty and disprove that of the BLM. Hannity and Carlson can be found on Fox News in the evening, and Marc Levin on Sunday night. I would also recommend JUSTICE with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night.

I don't usually like to advocate or advertise my own preferences, but I think things are getting out of hand and we must do something about it. Since I am not able to get out on the street and protest, I can only use my verbal opinion to help spread the word against the vicious and violent attacks on our America! 

Encourage all you know to VOTE!

TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE   ~~    IN MY OPINION

 

                                                                                                 Jean Coulard   July 16, 2020


V.P. Joe Biden as the President of the U.S.A.???? He may be a nice guy to his friends and family, but he has not been productive or honest in his thirty plus years in the Government.

He and his family have used his position and name recognition for power and money. He has been hypocritical to say the least. He has lied numerous times. And now he is playing to the anti-American promoters, the many that would like to see the United States fail.

Prior to being relegated to his basement under the guise of protection from the virus, he was babbling and stuttering, much like anyone on the verge of Dementia.

His demeanor was becoming a joke to many, and a frightening prospect to Democrats. Just a few weeks ago he was about to name his running mate. It was evident he was stopped “.. in his tracks..”!

Suddenly nothing more has been mentioned about the “lucky” person. Just as well. He was being extremely bias and racist by declaring it would be a woman of color. Throughout his campaign he declared this would be his criteria. Never mentioned the necessary requirements, experience or qualifications. All he would say is the person would have to be able to step up on the first day!!

Now, all of this is pretty scary. I agree. However, after the extended quarantine in his home, we have seen a very different man. And I emphasis “different”!

Consider this if you will. He was being detained to perfect his demeanor and his public self. He has made a tremendous about-face in speaking, in his ability to read the teleprompter, and to speak with  a continuity of thought and words. What could this be the result of?? In my opinion his “staff” has been testing his responses to one of the many “brain enhancing” medications on the market today. Of course, I am aware that many others have used, and are using them to improve their own moods and attitude. Ever since JFK actually. It has been widely known and documented that he (JFK) was using one such medication. Now this I know is not illegal. I am all for a healthy brain for all of us. But, while enhancing the power of the Brain is in good health, does it change the actual behavior of the individual? Does it change the voluntary and involuntary responses of the individual within his/her scope of experiences and learning. Basically does it change the preferences in decisions and opinions? Of this I am greatly concerned as I feel that each and every one of the American voting public should be.

Obviously, while his outward demeanor has been improved, I do not see a change in his preferences. He is still faulting the Constitutional Republic that has served us so well over the years. He is still promoting the policies of the “extreme left”.

Following the public words of the misguided Media, of the dissenters within the Democratic Party, and not saying a word against the violence of the protesters, he echo’s the words of the anti-American among us.

I have been dismayed and disgusted at the actions and policies of our Government for the last fifty (50) years with very few exceptions. At this point I can only say that I will vote as I did in the 2016 Election, and pick the lesser of two (2) evils. Trump is not perfect by any means, but he has done a lot for the Country and for the minority’s. Yes he has helped his friends, but at the same time he has helped the Nation. He has helped those that the Democratic Party has been lying to since the sixties.

We cannot let America slip into the “One World Order”. This was the drive of Hillary Clinton and all her backers. They gave us Barack Obama and we fell for the lies. Now we must stand up strong and tall. We must preserve the future for those that will follow, just as the many before us that sacrificed so much. The VOTE is our main weapon. Arm yourself!

MONDAY JULY 15, 2020

Yesterday I responded with a personal comment to a news article showing the owner of the Washington Redskins has agreed to change the team name. He gave in!!!!! Not only to the politics, but also to the Federal Express company that threatened to abandon the Stadium with their name on it.

I couldn't let all this anti-American and 'Politically Correct' nonsense go unanswered, and I did. Now I have decided to share my public 'comment' to NEWSMAX with you, my Blog supporters.

Re: Redskins change name:

" .......... Make sure you add "coward" and "selfish" to the new name! This action is spurred by 'sponsors' and the BLM movement (which is supported by Soros and other anti-American peoples). Obviously showing all, that "money" and "power" has become the new purpose in life. Patriotism and National Pride have been thrown out the window, along with the concern for fan loyalty. I am just below 40% North American Indian (according to and verified by research), and I was proud to see a team with that name (Redskins). Who's next? Maybe the "Cowboys"? Don't forget the New York "Yankees" or the Florida "Seminoles"! .............. and on and on. 

I have become disgusted and sad over the change that our Government leaders (all Parties) have allowed all this nonsense to permeate our Nation. It started with Pres. Lyndon Johnson, and has been allowed to creep into our lives.  Donald Trump was elected because he boasted a new America. Bringing back the true American bold and courageous attitude. Why has all this other "stuff" come forward? The President and his staff seem to rely on the Constitution. Maybe it's time to rely on our true heritage. We should not rely on Lawyers to run our Country. Let the Businessmen take over. And we should use our own individual powers, like boycotting (it's the only way to fight these idiots). Hit them in their pockets. Look how the sponsors leave guys like Tucker Carlson and other men and women in the Media who are not afraid of the high rollers. Sean Hannity has lost followers since he watered-down his narrative, became redundant and talked too much to use up time in his hour.

As an avid fan of the N.Y. Giants and the Dallas Cowboys (yes both) I am dismayed and upset. I will not watch Football and I may go "bananas" with the withdrawal, but I have to. And I am happy to hear others are doing the same. If you don't have the fortitude to make known your opinion, then at least don't support these characters with your hard earned money........... "!  end of my comment.

JULY 11, 2020                              CAPITALISM NEEDS DISCIPLINE

 Our system of Capitalism is the best to come down the pike in Centuries. I firmly believe that and I disagree with those that say it cannot last. It just needs to be controlled. Like a lost child it must not be allowed to run amok of the people and our Government.

Those who take advantage of Capitalism in a very selfish way must be stopped. Their actions are causing the current rise of violent protests.  And yet we see them, the Left, encouraging and supporting the protests. They have become so encrusted with their own power and financial gain, they will stop at nothing to keep it. 

And yes, there are those on the Right that also take advantage, and for the same reasons. However, I do feel that on the Right they are also responding to the needs of their constituents, and working to help the minorities.

Perhaps by referring to our Citizens as “minorities” and “majorities”, we are instilling a mindset that is disruptive, and works against Society. We may be seeing a result of that. Those who wish to see the United States of America as part of a “One World Order”, are, in my opinion, using the "result" of which I speak, to motivate certain folks to action.

Splitting our Government into the “Right” and “Left”, further enhances the movement we see today. 

It appears to me that the so-called “Left” throws out promises and sends crumbs. Where-as I see the Right throw out promises and we see a whole loaf. (or most of it at least).

To sum up my words; I believe that our current Administration is helping the Citizens of all classes. While they maintain their own success, they also help those in need and those who attempt Entrepreneurship. It is a delicate balance to uphold, but at least they are trying. I must support that.

I cannot fathom the thinking of those on the “Left” who  encourage such violent disruption and attempt to alter our minds and our Society. By encouraging the violent resistance actions, they are actually destroying the land and people that they hope to control. They will be left with the very animals they have used and the worthless property that is left.

I further speak today of the St. Louis couple that defended their lives, their property and home against an angry mob. And now the local D.A. has sent the police to search their home for other weapons!!!!!! This is a Black woman who, according to news reports, has an abysmal record against crime. [Since the many Media members are so adamant to identify a person by the color of their skin, I will do the same]. I have noticed an increased amount of “reverse racism” since the BLM movement has grown. Do these people not realize and see that this very movement is aimed AGAINST them??

I will end my opinions today with a big pat on the back on the CEO of Goya foods. Here is a company that has just donated millions of dollars worth of food to the needy and the “left” is criticizing him for it. He also gave a similar amount to an area that suffered from a devastating hurricane, and millions to the effort of then First Lady Michelle Obama for her ‘feed the children’ effort aimed at schools. And I might add that most of the children getting free meals in schools are from the Black community. I cannot believe the ignorance of the community leaders not realizing the devastating result of their lack of actions against the BLM movement.

And V.P. Biden is going to choose a “woman of color” for his running mate?!?!. This is a travesty of common sense and intelligence. He will set us back to the Obama years when the occupant of the Oval Office practiced “reverse racism” and nearly decimated our Nation. I would expect the choice should be of someone who is qualified; not just because of their skin color but their background and experience.

I have gotten carried away as usual with my keyboard. I will say bye for now. Stay well. Pray for our Nation.

TORTURE MILANIA?????   

Of all the nasty violent headlines that have been printed in the last several years by our hateful Media, this one has touched me so much!

A statue of her in her home town has been toppled and torched ! ! ! ! !

This woman has done nothing to our United States, nor to the World, other than to highlight our children and their needs; she has brought dignity back to the White House and to our culture; she is not dancing in a “show-off” manner, and she advocates proper dress for the occasion. Always a lady, and always smiling.

TUESDAY       JULY 7, 2020

Today I have questions to the residents of Thurman, N.Y. You have the unique position of living in a beautiful part of New York State. Do you realize and appreciate that God has given you this opportunity to enjoy the best of the best?

Of course there may be better; but we can't live everywhere. So you have chosen this community that has been, at one time, "..almost Heaven.."

Many wonder what happened to that concept. Well, having spent 28 years ( '65 - '93) as a vacationer and visitor,  and now permanently for the past 27 years, I can recall the better times with envy and remorse for having lost them. 

I can recall the loss of Supervisor John Haskell as being a very sad time; for it was then that I realized how many Politicians (Federal & Local), allowed their personal opinions and their selfish agenda influence their decisions. After reviewing much information, and talking with many of the Thurman-born residents, I am convinced of the illegitimacy and blasphemy of removing him from office. And to remember the photo of the Police taking him out in shackles and handcuffs is a total embarrassment to this beautiful community and a very sad memory.

These memories permeate my thoughts today as I see the current Town Board doing the very thing that he was accused of, and spent time behind bars when found guilty. I do not, in my opinion, consider that he had a fair and equitable trial. But that is my opinion.

It seems the favoritism allowed politicians by their friends and co-horts in the political field, is the modes-operand-i for the leaders of today. I see this from Washington, D.C. to Thurman. We can't influence Washington as much as we can here in Thurman; and I hope we can work on it from the bottom up, here in our little Town, and make a difference for those coming after. Perhaps, in the same thinking, we can very possibly improve this Town so the future generations will stay, and not move on after school. They will stay and share their knowledge and passion to improve their own hometown.

JULY 6, 2020     11:00AM

Each and every day I wake up to more headlines that are unbelievable. I see where Chris Cuomo, our Governors brother, is once again in the headlines.

First it was his phony climb from the basement after his self-imposed quarantine. Then his violation of his brothers' "distancing" when he went to his home in the Hamptons of Eastern Long Island, and had a verbal altercation with a biker that he referred to with words I cannot mention herein.

Now Mr. Cuomo, being, I presume, a good Italian Catholic from New York, is making reference to our need for God in our everyday lives. Or is he saying we do not need God? Look it up and make your own interpretation.

2:16 PM     Just breezed through a few headlines and found nothing new in the World. At this time, my thoughts are of you who are still following and agreeing with Alexandria Cortez, the "Squad", Senator Bernie Sanders, and the others that are trying to move our Nation out of the standard, loyal and secure visions of the Founders and into the large Government with a controlled Bureaucracy. The only questions I have at this time is what, if any, connection there is between those I just previously mentioned, and the voting members of the Democratic Party. I refer to Pelosi, Schumer, Nader and the many others who obviously are pushing our Country in a direction totally alien to the original concept and Constitution. And what are they using to intimidate the corporations and sports venues to engage them.

Our Nation is based on freedom, liberty and entrepreneurship; for all men and women of all colors and creeds. And yet there is a growing movement pushing to "transform America" as President Obama has claimed in the early days of his candidacy for the Presidency; and also in his acceptance speech. Now I hear these very words from V.P. Biden. This has waved a big red flag in my mind. Now I am paying absolute attention to what is being said and who says it. 

Please do the same. Leave your current political affiliation until the dust settles; remember you are an American first. Be a true descendant of the Founders and those that followed after them; including those who immigrated to this land to enjoy the freedoms, liberties and rights that are indigenous to many and earned by most.

JULY 5, 2020    1:25 P.M.

It appears the Liberal Leftists that have invaded and overtaken our Democratic Party, while influencing the groups of protesters that follow them and rely on their financial support, have used the Pandemic virus to force changes in our vacation habits, our living habits and our sports venues. I say STOP IT!! Stop it right now. "Now or never". And I am quite adamant about that. IT IS TIME!! IT IS TIME!!

The more we allow them control, the more they will take. Stop running away from the virus. Deal with it the best way you can. Deal with it the best way you know how. I am in a high risk status, and I will not run from it. I have never run from anyone or anything when I was able to stand and fight. I will not start now. A mask and common sense is all I need. The Democratic Governors and Mayors will not tell me what to do or where I can go.

Pres. Trump, help us out here. You have always been a fighter and a winner. I know from your days at the NYMA that you are a leader. Stop listening to the Politicians at your side. They got us into this mess, and now, YOU are the one to get us out. Follow your instincts as a New Yorker, a Businessman, a winner and leader, and lead us in the right direction. You know what that is. You listened to the Scientists and look where it got us. I understand why you did, but it didn't work out. Get back on your own course, that is why we elected you. Do what you know you should, for all Americans. We are a diverse Nation; leave it that way. No one Ethnic or Religious group is any better, or deserves any special attention than any other.

JULY 5, 2020   10:AM

Well now, do you believe this one? A Catholic Priest (here in USA) has been suspended for his sermon condemning BLM and protests. That's all the info I have right now but will research further. As an aside I would recommend boycotting those behind any of these institutions, organizations, and retailers that have succumbed to the demands of those attempting to annihilate our Nation and it's values, liberties and freedoms. We must get behind with whatever support we have to help those on the "front lines".

They are making their presence known in our beloved sports venues. How would you like to see the Cleveland Browns become the Cleveland Pinks?; or the New England Patriots be the N.E. East Coasters?  The San Diego Padres could be the San Diego Sinners. Kansas City Chiefs would be the Kansas City Squaws; no that wouldn't work would it? Maybe try the Kansas City Kingpins! How about making the San Francisco Giants the San Francisco Board Walkers????

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

JULY 4, 2020

I am extremely angry at the weak-kneed, cowardly corporations that are bowing to the protesters supported by the Socialistic, Tyrannical, Dictatorial Liberals on the left side of the Democratic Party. The yellow streak running down their backs is beginning to show through their black BLM shirts.

Many of us have been talking, commenting, and using social media to express our rage at the highly supported violent protesters. Perhaps it is time to get away from the "pen & pencil toting" Patriotics and keep these mouthy attention-seekers out of our neighborhoods. A group of Tennessee Veterans, following one lonely Vet, have now gathered to protect their memorial. I refer to one Vet that went by himself to the monument, and soon when others heard about it they joined him. Now that is America to me!!

There is just so much our Representatives can do about these Anarchists; these cowards hide behind the Constitution like little kids hiding behind "mommy's apron"!

 MY RANDOM THOUGHTS                                                     JUNE 22 & 23, 2020

Forgive my language please, but I am damn sick and tired of this ridiculous claim that Black lives matter. Get off your high collective horses and come on down to Earth with the rest of us. ALL lives matter!!!!! Keep that in your thoughts. Those of you in mixed race marriages, I ask who is more important, your partner, you or your mixed race children?

Subscribing to Black lives matter? ~ ~ what about your beloved Barack Obama who is legally and fact-backed to be half white and half Kenyan? Which part of him matters?? I believe he started all this racism for his own gain along with those who are behind him (along with Sharpton and the other so-called Community Leaders). Was that not Obama's official title working in Chicago??

Your ignorance is astounding! You have allowed the phony "Community Leaders" to convince you of all this divisional race nonsense. Don't you realize for God's sake they are getting paid to scream and 'holler' their words at you? How else do you think people like "Rev" (????) Sharpton can afford the life they have. His expensive clothes, jewelry etc. are not the result of a successful life as a "man of God", nor are his expenses to travel on a moments notice to any city where there is trouble brewing. He leaves his flock to attend to the work of the devil!

And now we have these millionaire Athletes who made it through the halls of higher learning on a "give-me" program that included a general education degree; which tells me they know nothing of the unwritten rules of Mankind. 

Just put on your uniform and play the game. Entertain us!!!! Don't force your personal opinions on the rest of us. You know very little of what you speak. You only worship the attention and the money.

FROM MY MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

Seems China has tentacles all over the place. The National Institute of Health has found approximately three hundred ninety-nine (399) Scientists are being investigated since the COVID virus invaded. Of that number, so far, fifty four (54) have lost their jobs or resigned. It was found that eighty percent (80%) of that number were Asian!! 

aside:  ... if it's"made in China"...it should be returned to the retailer for refund. Maybe they will get the message if the bottom line goes down. I also support "boycotts". Some people only understand the bottom line. Let them know your boycotting and why.  Capitalism has been used and abused by the greedy.


WOW!! INTERESTING TO SAY THE LEAST

I have to share the following with you. Just further information about who exactly is going all out to keep Donald Trump from winning re-election. As I have said before, these people, these organizations, will stop at nothing to achieve their agenda.

       (RightWing.org)   " .......... President Trump’s re-election campaign hit back Sunday at claims Saturday’s rally in Tulsa, OK, was sabotaged by teenagers on social media app TikTok. Democrats have been gloating about the fact the heavily subscribed event didn’t pack the venue to capacity, claiming this happened because teenagers and K-pop fans made tens of thousands of false reservations to block seats, with notorious radical congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) even taking to Twitter to crow about it  ............ " .  

Rep.Cortez was praising this on her Twitter page. That Twitter entity should be investigated by the Atty. Gen. for violation of the First Amendment since they mostly print radical and non-Conservative articles, while censoring anything truly American. Why are they allowed to continue with this obvious and outrageous behavior?

Reminds me of the previous crimes proven by our Investigating Committees from Congress. Who has been found guilty and put in Prison? Only those that were not basically Politicians. Who has been allowed to get away with everything? (yes the Politicians)

Time to get rid of most of the Politicians. It seems they are all "sleeping in the same bed", and they protect each other when the chips are down. It's time to consider keeping Trump, no matter your Political affiliation; and begin now to find another Businessman to follow him. 

 While a Businessman is also questionable for his/her tactics, at least they are supportive of their employees and take care of them. I have found this to be quite true, in my 50+ years in that community.

Politicians have turned their back on their Country, on our Constitution, on their promises. They have one thing in mind, and that's their own selfish agenda. Don't get me wrong, I am not for the characters violently protesting, the destroying of businesses and property, and scaring many elderly citizens living alone in our cities. 

In November we have a choice to make: pick the lesser of two evils. The current administration, while it may appear they have helped Corporate America and the Banking Industry, I have to admit they have also helped the Country as a whole!

 IN ANOTHER ARTICLE:   
PG and E, a utility company of California, has been ordered to pay a fine of $3.5 million when found guilty to a lower case of manslaughter, plus an additional half a million for the cost of the investigation of a recent Forest fire. Approximately 84 lives were lost. Some victims were found in their cars trying to escape the horror of flames and smoke. Is this enough? Is money ever enough to those who suffered the loss of friends, family, property and possibly Pets? The Company admitted guilt through their Attorneys and representatives! At the time it was questioned if this was due to the Company not spending money for proper maintenance and upkeep of their system. I believe it was found to be in serious dis-repair!

Current CEO Johnson accepted full responsibility on behalf of the Company. He had only come on board a few months after the tragedy, and resigned after the trial. Ya' think he was just brought on for this trial? Guess if that's so he was handsomely rewarded.

JUNE 21, 2020


DEMOCRAT?  ~ ~  NO!! ~ ~  REPUBLICAN?  ~ ~  NO!!  ~ ~  AMERICAN! ! ! ! ! YES ! ! ! ! !

I not sure anymore just what Party I support. Or if I support any Party at all. They (most Politicians) have proven to be "sleaze-bags" anyway. (don't know exactly what a sleaze-bag is), but I'll go with it. In my opinion it just refers to a real low-life.

Did you know anyone "on the right" is considered a White Supremacist? Or maybe just Racist. If that be so, then please tell me what and who are those people that are managing V.P. Joe Biden for President? They are picking a V.P. running mate according to gender and skin color! What ever happened to qualifications? Of course Biden is definitely not qualified anyway in my opinion.

Wait a minute. Just wait a minute! Are these the same people that had hundreds protesting against American White Police Officers at a time when several States  made everyone stay home to avoid contact with others due to the Pandemic?

And now the Governor and the Mayor of Seattle, Wash. are allowing a group of Anti-American people and Cop-haters occupy and take over a small section of one of America's beautiful cities, and doing so in close proximity of each other. They put small businesses out of business, threaten those who reside there, and totally disrupt the entire area. They have been joined by the ever complaining Black Lives Matter faction. And also with the Antifa group. All because a White Policeman killed a Black perpetrator. I'm not saying it was justified. That is for the Justice Dept. to decide. Not me, not you and not a bunch of idiots screaming and carrying on demanding they be allowed to decide. This only happens when  a Black man is involved as the victim. Now take note that these people protesting and screaming for justice are congregating in close proximity to each other. But I guess that's alright because they are basically against our current Constitutional Republic Government. And the Candidate on the "right" is criticized for having a rally and putting all these people at risk. I believe all attending had to be tested and provided PPE before entering. And no-one was forced to go. Did the protesters get tested and given any protection equipment? And were they not told, most of them, that they had to be there, and oh yes, some had AK - 15's, or is it AK - 47's for protection! ! ! Many of them appeared that they came from the homeless groups in San Francisco. Perhaps they were promised some of their necessities if they participated.

Did you know that most every year there are more White men killed by Police than any other Race. Maybe that's why we have more Black men in Prison. The White men are killed while being arrested or subdued and never make it to Prison!

One last word if you will. It has been reported the girl friend (not the wife, but the girlfriend) of the fellow recently killed by Police in Atlanta, has been charged with the crime of Arson for burning down a Wendy's restaurant. But that's ok, she is a woman of color and a feasible excuse will be given to assure her of not going to prison. I'm sure now that all the people that have no job to go to will be real happy to hear that.

Do you think it's time for the "Silent Majority", and the White Supremacist, and all the other good Americans to stand up and start walking the streets, peacefully?????

President Trump says we should just wait and see what happens. He thinks it will all even out in time (my words). I disagree. How much longer can we wait for Justice? How much longer can we watch our Policeman be brutalized? They deserve our support; after all they put their lives on the line every day for us.

GOD BLESS US ALL

I AM YOU ~ ~ YOU ARE ME

Together we share the same beautiful Planet. We are Family. And no-one shall divide us! And no-one matters more than another!  Get out of yourselves people.

The Black community must realize this more than any other. I am sorry your ancestors were treated badly. 

Mine were the original North America Indian, and suffered badly at the hands of the Europeans that took away their land and slaughtered many. But now we owe it to our children to retain and maintain our History as an aid to help us teach them. 

As Parents and adults we must teach the young to accept themselves and others as God has made us all. We are not perfect, and we must help each other to get through our frailties. We must help each other to survive in the best way. Improvement and growth should be all that we subscribe to, as we work and play to enjoy the Freedoms and Liberties that we have worked so hard to protect.

Yes, I know that we have been used and abused by those in our Government that have put themselves ahead of their Constituency. And now there is a faction going all out to impose their agenda on our Country. There are many in their number, and they are arming themselves. They are intimidating the vulnerable and weak among us. They have even threatened the Corporate people. Those who have supplied us with our necessities over the years. They must go along for now to keep our jobs and continue our Economy. 

Basically the Anti-American protestors are attacking our Economy. That has been their agenda all along. Our strong Economy is our backbone. It is our "life-jacket"! The strength of our Economy is the most important thing right now; our Economy and our people, together we will prevail.                    

Our Election system is flawed. But it may be too late now to fix it for this year's voting. Therefore we must get as many out there to exercise their right and vote. Even those of you sitting on the fence; please try to understand that we must put aside our "political party" support for now. We are so divided it is almost impossible to realize who is who. I can only suggest you talk with your friends, your family and neighbors. Don't treat it like an argument, just exchange knowledge and thoughts. Don't try to change their minds for that will cause an argument. Walk away if that starts. Try to learn their thoughts and share yours. Use your intelligence. Read all sides of the News. Make up your own mind as an individual. 

God Bless and stay well.

ABOUT FREEDOM ~ LIBERTY ~ DEMOCRACY ~ and CAPITALISM

We should not have to be told to pay respect to our Flag or our National Anthem. It should be something felt from the Heart, and would be if we had been taught our true National history through the Education system and from our Parents!

It is unfortunate that such freedoms that we as a Nation enjoy, are taken advantage of  by the selfishness of those who cave in to the detractors and tread lightly to avoid what is falsely considered racism. All to gain more profit!

Turning to the current situation in Atlanta; the Police were attempting to control the suspect when he grabbed one of their weapons (I believe it was a stun-gun) and started to run away. Did the Media and others think the Police were going to let him run away and commit another crime on another day? NO. So naturally they went in pursuit. The perpetrator turned as he ran, pointed and discharged a weapon at them and continued running. The Police then did as they had been trained; they shot at him!

Where is the crime here??! Why was one officer fired and the other put on suspension? What about "Due Process"? Are we still reverting to "guilty until proven innocent"? What has happened to "Innocent Until Proven Guilty"? When do the Police get their day in court? Will that be after days of mourning for a man who resisted arrest, a man who was stopped from driving while intoxicated? What would have happened if he continued driving? And now as he ran, what would have happened had the Police let him continue running and eventually he injured or killed an innocent person? Would that also be the fault of the Police for allowing him to run?

And why did the Chief of Police resign? There are so many questions to be answered. Who is going to answer them?                                                                                                       

One thing I hope for sure, that we cannot allow the dissidents of today answer questions or make decisions for us. We need qualified and organized entities and Government to enact and maintain our Laws and represent us through our Constitution.

There are many forces today attempting to return us to the days before Martin Luther King. To the days of segregation and racism. We were moving along in a good direction until Barack Obama (a half-white half-Black man) was elected President. His 'backers' were the same persons, I believe, that are aiding and abetting the riots, violence and looting we see today. This, in my opinion, is pure anarchism. And it must be stopped!

We must support those that will stop it. I think the truckers, the bikers, the Police, and the National Guard need our support and help. We must absolutely resolve to support them. The good in their ranks far out-number the bad. We must step up!

Stay well, stay strong, fight for our Constitution and our Freedoms. Our children deserve it.

DIVORCE ~ DREAMING STYLE!!!!!

(Definitely not anything personal in my life.)

_________________________________________

I woke up this AM envisioning the following:

..... A young man in his mid teens stands there, holding a gun to his head, his parents standing in front of him screaming NO-NO-NO! DON'T DO IT!

He is reacting to what they are doing in reality, tearing his life apart. And he is thinking: "...They brought you into this world, and now they are leaving you alone to deal with it on your own. Telling you they will always be there for you. But you know that is not true..." 

"... In the past you were a family and when they spoke it was as one.                           

Your parents were one. Now they are two.  Screaming at you, screaming at each other. They are no longer one entity.  They are separated and expect you to accept this new life, but you are not ready to see them divided. You would rather leave this world then see them divided.

 You will never be able to deal with them as separate entity's.                                          

For your entire life you will still seek their advice, their comfort, their love, their support and protection. But as separate individuals, they will not be able to respond and help you.

They will move in different directions in their life. Leaving you to no longer treat them as one. Leaving you alone in your mind.

To you, in your heart and soul, they are one, and as one they brought you to this day. They must stay as one to be of any solace and strength to you. 

And yet they ignore their responsibility to you. They put themselves and their lives before any concern for you.

You cannot deal with that and continue on as a whole person. For once they no longer are a whole person to you; you will not be a whole person to yourself. You will always be divided, you will always be an unfinished product....! He asks himself  ".....What now? What will be there for me? Where am I headed??....."

RISE AND SHINE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where in the world, I asked myself, did this thought come from???

Eventually I realized, after giving it much thought, that my strong concern and thoughts about our Nation is what has invaded my mind. Our Government has divorced itself from within. Our Nation is so divided that it is difficult to see a return to the past, to the Nation of Liberties and Freedoms bequeathed to us from our Founders; from those that have given their lives and limbs to protect us as a free Country.

It is difficult to read the News and see the videos. It is emotionally painful. But I am not a negative-thinking person. I believe that we can heal. That we can come together as a people and gain the life that we once enjoyed.

The truckers in our Country are refusing to enter into the current "Left"-controlled Cities if the Police are not there; and that will cause unknown reactions and hardships; the Bikers that support our Government are indicating their own involvement to stop the division and violence created and caused by those who would infiltrate the decent peaceful protesters. The bikers and truckers are not intrinsically violent, but they will do what has to be done to stop the outrageous lack of civility that is permeating our lives.

Decent people have a right to protest. The only problem they cause is a disruption of traffic. That could be a good thing considering the many traffic jams we see in our cities. A break would almost be welcome. You would be forced to find a different more comfortable way to get home.

And therein lies my hopes and dreams; we, together, will find a comfortable way of life; we will regain our Life, Liberty and happiness. We, once again, will be a free Nation. All we must do is support and have faith in those who will do whatever it takes to get it back.

God Bless and stay well. (PRAY)

TUES. JUNE 9, 2020

Trump is a very wealthy man as are most (if not all) Democrats. So I must then, believe what I have read this morning. We are witnessing a battle between the two "BULLIES" in the playground!!! Or maybe a better example would be GODZILLA vs. KING KONG!!!

I am picturing the two 'big' Political Parties, the Democrats and the Republicans. I understand from what I have read, they are fighting as enemies, not partners working together for the American people, and using you and me as weapons. And if that's true, you and I and all the others, can throw out our conspiracy theories.

In my opinion, the words we all have been using " ... the lesser of two evils ... ", seem to 'fit the bill' perfectly, do they not? Well, I am not going to pick one as yet since we have a lot of time to do so. However, most of you are aware of who I am leaning toward.

And I have many reasons why I lean where I do. But this morning I read an article where the previously acting DNI director, Mr. Grenell, was an openly Gay gentleman. Of course his personal life does not weigh for or against my respect and agreement with him; that is for another day's discussion. He has demonstrated something that most others do not associate with Gay men; and that is his courage, and his willingness to stand up for what he feels is right. 

I am reminded of the Gay man who convinced his fellow-passengers, on that ill-fated plane back on Sept 11, 2001, that landed into a heap of metal and flames in a field in Pennsylvania, to fight those who took over the plane that was headed for Washington D.C. They all knew they were doomed, but gave their lives to protect their fellow citizens, and our way of life and Government. That, in my opinion, was bare-knuckle courage!

There have been many such before him that you never heard of; you only see the the other side, those who parade the streets of New York in costumes. That should tell you how diversified our Nation is. We have good, bad, and ugly within our Citizenship, and we must all come together to protect ourselves from the dissidents who wish to control our Country, who demand only what they feel is best for all of us. Their selfish attitude, in my opinion, is an unhealthy attitude at best. It is destructive of our Democratic ways. It is demoralizing to our youth. It is a slap in the face to our Founders and to the many who have given all in wars to protect our Constitutional Republic.

Our Nation was making great strides prior to President Obama. He has been described by many as the most Racist President ever. I believe they are right. And I also believe he is very much behind much of the rioting we see today. He and Al Sharpton (he does not deserve the title "Reverend" in my opinion) have been the most disruptive forces in our Country for many years, and it is time to stop them.






YA GOTTA BELIEVE IT ERNIE ~ ~ HE IS HIS OWN MAN! ! ! 

FRI. JUNE 5, 2020  3:00 PM

Watching the President speak this AM at a press conference, I realized what a guy he really was.

This is the first President I have seen, and I been watching them since the 50's, that talks off-the-cuff. Of course in doing it that way he will most certainly be quite redundant. But that's a good thing. Too many people just listen with a half-hearted ear; with repetition one can hope and expect that a lot of the words will sink in.

He is, in my opinion, a natural Pep-Rally speaker. And that is exactly what our Nation needs at this time. I also like that he walked off when a "stupid" question was asked by a rude reporter.                                                   

He had walked from the podium to a small table next to it, to sign a bill, when this rude person kept shouting out a question. Twice he said he couldn't hear and finally he gestured that he was there to sign a bill; but still this person,  (................?? whatever) kept asking the question! Eventually he ignored it, signed the bill, and stood with the others on stage for a photograph; then he waived off and walked away. Love it!!!!!

I had my doubts about Trump when he won the election. But I felt honestly that if Hillary won, we would have exactly what we are having today, just a little sooner. And I have been satisfied I made the right decision when I see what he and his administration have accomplished in a short period of time.

It makes one wonder if this whole "Pandemic" thing wasn't  intentional; or at least brought forth a " ... crisis that couldn't go to waste ..."! as some have indicated.

Either way, I feel confident that between the President and A.G. Barr, we will see the violence and looting stopped. Perhaps for good. Those of you against the second amendment should take a good long look. How many were able to protect their business, their life savings, their future, and know they can raise their children in security and good health.?

In my opinion the Trump Administration, and the President himself, have every right to brag and/or boast about the accomplishments they have achieved. The Media certainly isn't helping; the President must put the word out there himself.

I feel confident that all will be back to normal. Perhaps a new normal. Either way, the United States of America is returning, strong and self-reliant.

If the nasty virus does return in the Fall, we will be ready. We will not run and hide with our tails between our legs. We will stand and fight. And we will prevail!

God Bless

WED. JUNE 3, 2020   11:50 AM


I'm sure you all are tired as I am about all this protest & violence stuff. My generation is of the fifties, and this was something that just didn't exist. Did it ever occur to you that this is very selfish behavior? I guess it depends on how you as an individual view it. I view it as such.                                                                                     

And I, along with many, many others do not appreciate 'police' brutality. I don't appreciate any brutality. But  unfortunately, such situations do occur. There is no reason on God's great Earth to physically harm another except, of course, in defense of our property our selves or others. And unfortunately, such situations do occur. 

It is my opinion that police brutality is not something we can totally erase from our Society. We are Human after all, and we do not have the ability to have absolute control of our emotions. Sometimes they do get away from us. 

We must depend on our policing agencies to police themselves. When someone is seen behaving out of the norm, it must fall to those who witness the scene to stop them. I would hold those who do nothing just as guilty, or maybe even more so. And unfortunately we see some of this behavior within our Military also.

Perhaps the Human problem is that we fear Peer rejection more than we fear the Law. I would expect that our Peers would eventually thank us for stopping them from brutal, criminal or embarrassing behavior. If they don't then the onus is also on them.

I feel that this very public behavior, (when prolonged and intensified) is quite selfish;  I see a strong cry for attention. Either by individuals, or groups definitely intent on getting a lot of public attention, and quite possibly for political or personal agendas'.

It is my distinct and personal opinion, politics aside, that as of this time and date, it is past time for the Attorney General and the President to step in and take charge of the safety of people and property of the Citizens of the United States. Of course, if I were in their shoes I also would tread carefully. There is no sense in feeding the "Left" and giving them words to manipulate and actions to lie about.

It is a tight rope they in our Government must walk. The Citizens of the United States depend on them for protection. And yet we see more than one group protesting against the Government itself. Those who would defeat us and take over our land, rich in natural resources, have openly and blatantly defied our Government in the hopes of turning Citizens against it. They target the weak and the vulnerable. We cannot allow that to happen.

I call on State and Local Governments to stand up, to speak to their constituents, let them know that we must put Politics aside. States Rights are necessary! We all agree! But these times demand solidarity; we must fight the common enemy. The enemy that we know has infiltrated into some of our very own State Governments. And are infiltrating the protests. We have our First and Second amendment's that our enemies are trying to twist, but we need them to defend ourselves and help the Gov. help us. We can defend our property while the Government weeds out the dissidents among the protesters. We must know what we are fighting for to give us inspiration to do so.

George Floyd has not died in vain. His death will forever be known as the standard for which all free men stand in opposition of Anti-Democracy, Oppression and One World Order. We must stand together today for Liberty and Freedom tomorrow.     

GOD BLESS US ALL!!!

 While those two up there are flipping their feathers with gossip, I am going to share my thoughts today one sentence at a time. (well may be two)!

I had a thought this AM that the anti-American Left calls Trump "dangerous" because he IS DANGEROUS to their agenda, and they hate him because he is fighting them tough.  [been trying to put logic and common sense to their behavior; should have given up long ago; this is not purely Political, it is inter-nationally supported].

Have you seen the blatant hypocrisy by previous ESPN sports announcer Chris Palmer? OUTRAGEOUS!  You should look it up on PATRIOT ALERT publication!  

"American People Daily" is a Conservative publication that I have been hearing from lately. Don't know how they got my email but hey, that's not surprising is it? But to be honest I am enjoying their articles. The latest one today talked about charges toward China and North Korea. Seems they have been working together to enhance N.K."s nuclear program. Does that surprise you??

WELL, I'LL TELL YOU ERNIE ~ ~  IT'S LIKE THIS:

RACE IS NOT THE PROBLEM

First of all I do not feel that the average, down-to-Earth intelligent person from the Black community, really believes that race is the underlying cause for the problems we are having today.

Too many men like Martin Luther King and so many others, have spoken out to aid in the upward movement of the Black community. And too many, such as Al Sharpton from New York, incite violence and riots in the name of Race relations. It is obvious to me, and many others I am sure, they are attempting to create a division. [has anyone noticed the extremely expensive watch Mr. Sharpton wears? And how does he earn his living? Could it be through his supposed two (2) dollar "reverend-by-mail" certificate?]

There are many groups that are very anti-American filtering into protest groups. We are all aware of this. I wonder why the Black community leaders are not doing more to stop this. It is fostering the bigotry and feeding into the narrative of those who would divide us in their attempt to destroy our Constitutional Republic, that has survived us for over two hundred and twenty five (225) years. 

Under Capitalism, Democracy and Entrepreneurship, we have become the great Nation that our founders visualized. They have served our Citizenry well. 

[" ..... Ellis Island is a federally owned island in New York Harbor that was the United States' busiest immigrant inspection station. From 1892 to 1954, approximately 12 million immigrants arriving at the Port of New York and New Jersey were processed there under federal law ..... "]

However, since the closing of Ellis Island Immigration station, and thereby encouraging open and porous borders, our way of life has declined in my opinion. Many who have entered for work, education, visiting and tourism have not left at the established time; and unfortunately our system has failed to follow-up on those that have stayed. Consequently we have many living, working and enjoying the benefits of a true Democracy and the good life so many envy, while not contributing into the System. It is also my opinion that our crime rates have risen, and many diseases have been brought to our shores through this change in our Immigration System.

While we change our Laws and regulations to accommodate the increase in population, I believe we have  drastically accommodated those that have remained illegally. This, in my opinion, has cost us dramatically. As more people use our system, expenses have gone up to providers, and costs to Consumers have risen accordingly. I refer to the expense to all vendors, manufacturers and service providers by way of adopting a second language in advertising; and to Teachers and other Professionals learning a second language to teach and speak to non-English-speaking students.

Learning a second language is, of course, a benefit to anyone. And increased workers is good; but if they are not contributing anything to Society financially; if they are not abiding by our Laws and regulations, what benefit is it to the American Citizens in general.

The sad reality of this is the fact that many of our elected leaders use these people (both Legal and illegal) to vote for them by giving in to their demands, and addressing their needs through lies and manipulation of laws and regulations. They are allotted free education and Health care without the paying of income taxes and other fees and regulations associated with legal Citizenship.

How can we remedy this situation? Very simply. Upon receiving valid and authorized Citizenship, a photo ID card should be issued, a person must have a good command of our English language, and an education comparable to our Elementary Education with exceptions and allowances associated with and to age.

Along with this change in Immigration and assimilation, a photo ID should be initiated to all current Citizens for the purpose of valid identification for many requisites including voting, application for various public benefits and licenses, and serving in public office.

This would be a tremendous improvement in our Society in my opinion. There are those who feel this would be an infringement on our privacy and individualism. I totally disagree. Since becoming such a diversified Nation, we must, in the name of security for ourselves and our Country, have a dignified way of maintaining and protecting our way of life. I feel also that this would be a definite and serious method of reducing crime.

And that, my friends and neighbors, is my opinion.

WHAT'S GOIN' ON BERT???

MAY 28, 2020          PROPERTY DAMAGE IS PART OF PROTESTING?????

I cannot support people who are so quick to scream for justice. What about listening to all participants' side to the story? 

Last night we were subjected to a horrific scene in Minnesota by our selfish, attention-grabbing Media. I refer to the actions following the arrest of a suspected perpetrator.

I felt the Media was attempting to influence a certain opinion pertaining to this event. Constantly continuing to show the Policeman with his knee on the mans' neck. And yes, the man was struggling and trying to say something. But was he just trying to get away, and was he cursing at the Officer? I don't know. I only know what the Media reporter was telling me; and he was saying the man was trying to tell the Officer he couldn't breath. Others listening to the TV also claimed he was saying those words and they could hear it! I couldn't simply because I have a hearing deficiency. But I question the fact that those words were being heard due to the tremendous noise of those around the scene. Was the TV audience simply assuming they heard the words because the reporter was saying he heard it? I question the ability of anyone saying anything loud enough to be heard at any distance if they were gasping for breath. 

I am being the "devil's advocate" of course. Mainly because I am quite tired of all  these constant protests that we have seen on TV for many a year now where-in the community complains about police brutality on one of their own. And mean-while we see many of the protestor's damaging property, looting stores, and burning vehicles. What about those committing the looting and vandalism? Has anything happened to them?

I strongly suggest restraint til we learn the truth. Wait until more official word comes out as to what happened. Then, if one is not satisfied with the official response being the truth; then protest. And do so with dignity, with intelligence, and with maturity. As such your actions will be taken more seriously. Your words will carry more weight. Police brutality is common, I agree with that. But are we not seeing more brutality with our Sports Professionals? Are we not seeing more brutality within our entertainment fields?

It appears to me the vast majority of civilization revels in watching all the violence and brutality. That doesn't excuse it from our Law enforcers. And we must make a sincere and honest effort to stop this. And I absolutely do not agree with the Liberal pandering of criminals. That also has gotten out of hand. They are proven wrong?; put them in Jail and they must serve their sentence. They should not be given better treatment for political reasons as is the case today! They should lose many of their civil rights, among other things as in the past.

I blame the Department of Justice. The Lawyers, the Prosecutors, the Judges; all of who seem to allow their personal and political opinions (or perhaps the almighty dollar) weigh heavily on their decisions. We must go after the cause not the result. (and of course, I speak not of the many honest, sincere and hardworking men and women in the Justice Departments). Many of our Police are so disgusted with the System of Justice being so soft on criminals, and it's affect on their jobs, I sometimes cannot blame them for over-reacting. Unfortunately when it happens, then two  families are stricken with grief and anger. And a community is divided. A people is divided. A Nation is divided. {and then the bad guys take over}

Be aware. Speak up for your own opinion. Don't keep it in your back pocket!

DON'T FLY 'WAY BERT  ~   I HAVE A FEW THINGS ON MY MIND!!

MAY 25, 2020                 POLITICS BE DAMNED ~~~~~THE PEOPLE WILL PREVAIL

I read an article today where the Director of a prominent Chinese Laboratory opines that the United States is all wrong about the Virus. He claims they (China) never had the virus in any of their Labs.                                      

However, a paper was found written by the same scientist a few years back, where-in he talked of working with the very same virus. I sometimes just get so amazed at the lies and hypocrisy of some folks.                                   

The Chinese government claims to have had nothing to do with the onset of this world-shaking Pandemic, and yet they took measures to close down a village, burn down a building, and stop all air traffic into China proper from the Wuhan village (before informing the World about it)! And now a Diplomat attached to China has questioned the United States' actions in spreading lies about their Government. He further indicates that we should stop playing such games and move forward with the trade agreements, and learn to get along with China as we become valuable allies for the future.

Did you ever find cookies spilled all over the floor, and two little guys standing there pointing a finger at each other and declaring " ... he did it ... "!? 

Well now, you see what we have in the World today. Two countries, two World leaders, or sometimes even two members of our own Congress all pointing the finger. Gets to the point you don't want to hear any one of them anymore. All we want is to get back to work, no matter the risks, and support our families, make a living, go to our respective houses of Worship, and enjoy the life our Founding Fathers gave us through our Constitutional Republic.

Take your lies, your hypocrisies, your constant 'blaming the other guy', and leave us alone. We depend on our Government to protect us from those who would destroy or conquer our Nation; now we find us needing protection from within our own Government!!! God help us!

Yes, we understand people will die if and when the virus spreads further. And returning to work or worship may cause that. But we must maintain a semblance of our life. We must work and keep our economy going. We must worship and play for a full life. We cannot hide like cowards in our homes. Our enemies seem to be pushing for that, and the result will be a stale economy, and a life of dependency on the Government.           

That is not the American way. We are a proud people and prefer to depend on ourselves. We want only the protection of the Government from our enemies; from those that wish to destroy us and take over our Nation, hoping to control the citizens, and mostly to have control over the many abundant resources in the land. It can never happen; they know not how to lead a true Democracy. They know not how to handle the freedoms and liberties that we have. They will be destined to destroy the United States of America. 

It is my opinion this is a rude awakening for America. I support our current President and his administration. I have always supported my Government, whether Democratic, Republican, Independent, or whatever else. It is likened to family standing together no matter what. Seeing the havoc caused by the happenings within our Nation in the past ten to eleven years, or even in the past few decades, has left me with so many questions.

Who is right? Who is wrong? Which way should I turn? I can no longer ignore the questions. The time is near to make a life-changing decision. We must now think of those following in our footsteps as our Ancestors thought of us. Do not ever forget those who came before us and sacrificed so much to maintain our freedoms and liberties.

The most important decision is upon us to make. We must decide. Are the lies and hypocrisies of the anti-Trump people and the Media in control of our Nation? Is it time to stand up and defend our Country and fight behind the President. He cannot do this alone.  We still have enemies within the Government; those that are protecting their peers to whom they may be obligated. So many wrongs have been discovered. There are so many that should be in prison at this time. But this sect of citizens, those who have reached a high level of power and authority, have done so through favors of others, and now they turn away from the sins of these very same folks, to protect themselves. It is my opinion that many of the very politic that governs us, is also very dependent on favors and bribery to attain what they desire. They have operated on the premise that they must give a little to get a little. But what they have given is your right to life. A right to the life that we have all worked for through wars, famine and hardship. A right to the freedoms and liberties that so many have died for on foreign soil.

We are told opening up the economy and the Country will cause further spread of this deadly virus and many fatalities with it. Well my friends, forget not that the many wars we fought to protect our freedoms and liberties also caused many deaths. 

Are we ready willing and able to fight and die today for our Constitutional Republic? If not . . . LEAVE!

God Bless.

~~ BERT & ERNIE DISCUSS  " A CHAT ON EVERYTHING ~~

FRI. MAY 22, 2020

Today is a day for everything. I ventured out for some errands a few days this past week. And in so doing I have  mixed opinions on life in general, people and politics.

Overheard a comment the other day " ... what's the B_____ criticizing now!?? ... "

Well, criticizing is my 'forte' in this Blog, isn't it? And sometimes my Blog words carry over to everyday conversations. Maybe I'm just a wordy ole Curmudgeon. Sorry - - - deal with it! For those who have opinions, and do not speak them, I have great pity. They have very empty lives.

Speaker Pelosi is over eighty (is she not?) And considering all the stress in her political lifetime, it must be taking it's toll. Her "gaffes" are obvious if your paying attention. She is no different than VP Biden. But then, he is younger; and she has a better staff. Age doesn't necessarily define your mental agility. My Dad was sharp as a tack at 97. My last remaining brother is now going on 92, and pretty much up on everything, as his wife is also. I have a neighbor over 95, and she is also sharp as a tack. She talks on the phone often with her once-School-teacher (who is over 100). I am over eighty and while my memory sometimes needs a few extra seconds, I can still add 2 + 2 and get 4!

That being said let's get on to the mishmash and mess our Country is in.                                                                

Good gosh, where are our Founders? Can we recall them?? Or maybe it would be worthy and enlightening to read the History of their time and what they did to improve it. Are we all aware that the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and so many more Documents and Papers took more than one session of Congress? Even setting up the Congress took longer than a day!!! And they didn't take any salary or holidays either. And the laws that were enacted pertained ONLY to the subject in discussion. No personal agenda and no "pork"!                                           

Most of our young-uns' have not had the pleasure of being informed on just exactly what the Founders went through to get us to the point of Freedoms, Rights and Liberties that we have enjoyed over the years; that is until a certain President, after seeing to the assassination of another, put us on the road to a Liberal and Socialistic government. These folks that are trying to overthrow our Constitutional Republic have been patient in their efforts. Over the years, through small laws and resolutions, little changes have been quietly made that impact our Democracy.

Hillary Clinton, in her attempt to reside in the Oval Office, did not listen to her handlers, obviously. She was the poster girl for the organization pushing for "One World Order". And she truly believed in their objective. If she had orchestrated a better campaign perhaps she would have won. But we must remember that Donald Trump was a formidable enemy. And he had his backers also, and they obviously engaged in the proper tactics and rhetoric to win the Election. I sometimes think his group found out how the "other side" was planning to increase their election results, and the Trump team was able to thwart it. Perhaps that is why there is so much anger. They can't accuse the Republicans without exposing their own nefarious plan. We definitely need a more secure voting procedure. It has been proven that many of the votes counted in the previous National Election were not legal. And as a reminder; we can not allow the Electoral College to be dismissed. This entity levels the playing field and avoids any one State deciding the Election. Perhaps a photo ID is the best way to go. And I'm not talking about a driver's license. Anyone can get that.

Now on to this global virus; what a blight on our History. The entire World seemed to look ridiculously inept when first dealing with this. Why was China so slow in publicizing the threat to all of us? My opinion on that is because they did not know themselves the true voracity of this monster. However, they did stop outgoing air traffic from the Wuhan district to China proper, but not to other Countries. That does not go along with their decision to claim innocence. Mistakes were made, and that is understood and inevitable. But it takes courage and compassion to stand up and say "...I'm sorry, I made a mistake...". For many, many years I have not felt any trust for China's government. They have proven over and over again that they cannot be trusted. All of their trickery and deceit started back in the nineties under the Bill Clinton Administration. WOW who woud'a thought? We welcomed them with open arms. We allowed thousands of students to come here to study in our Universities. We allowed many, many scientists to work in our labs side by side with our own. President Clinton even allowed a China Diplomat to stay in the Lincoln Bedroom, in return for a dialogue between them. 

Since the beginning of time China has proved their propensity to deceit. Even during the recent past decades they have been blatantly ignoring laws and regulations of neighboring Countries. It must be stopped and quickly. I am hoping that we, as American citizens, make no purchases of anything made in China. That is our most potent weapon at this time, and will be for many years to come.

About the latest intentions of the Democratic Party to continue, or start anew, the impeachment of President Trump, I don't know whether to laugh, cry or drop my mouth wide open in an unbelievable response. However, according to The New York Post, Pelosi does not have the authority to declare the impeachment on her own. So here we go again. Closed door proceedings, locked up transcripts, and very few, if any, Republicans allowed into the "sanctuary" where these meetings are held. And a floor vote was never called by Pelosi to open the meetings. How can other members of our Government even allow this deceitful behavior? They continue to turn their heads on crimes and the obvious abuse of our Constitution. Are they not any better than those they criticize for allowing such obvious and Nation-destroying actions to go unpunished? It appears to me that both "sides" of the aisle are playing the same game. I have gotten to the point where I do not expect much from the "Durham" investigation.                                                                                                                                                                              

A heavily armed SWAT squad raids a home at the wee hours of the morning, of an elderly gentleman and his wife, for obscure reasons not immediately made public. They had no viable evidence. [I thought Hitler and the Nazis had passed through History.] And who was responsible for this horrific behavior by the police? No feasible explanation has as yet come forth. It should have been handled immediately!! If a local police squad had entered the wrong house for a raid, they would have been vilified by the Media. If a black man had been shot by the Police, the Officer is guilty of murder before he even gets back to his squad house! The appeasement of such incidents has amazed and angered me.                                                                                         

Bring back Pres. Harry Truman. He knew right from wrong. And he knew how to fight fire with fire. He dealt with crime and nefarious actions, no matter who was the guilty party.

Time to wipe that yellow streak off our backs. Stand up for the freedoms and liberties so many have died for!!!!!

Stay well my friends. God bless!      

Jean

 ~~ BERT & ERNIE DISCUSS  "POLITICAL NONSENSE" ~~

SUNDAY MAY 17, 2020 

So here we go again, more and more ridiculous 'stuff' from our never-surprising Government.              

Recently the Democrats attempted every dirty trick in the book to thwart the Republican Presidents nominee  for the Supreme Court (Kaufman). They insisted the woman (Ms. Ford) accusing him of sexual inappropriate behavior should be believed with or without evidence. 

Now, in the case of the Democrat's nominee for the upcoming Presidential Election (Biden), who also has been accused of sexual misconduct, he should be believed without an investigation.

Does anything that these people (the current Liberal Socialist-leaning persons), say or do surprise you in any way? In my opinion they are vindictive, despicable, hypocritical, nasty and downright lying and backstabbing individuals. Now, please, I am not referring to the old school Democrats, just the newcomers from about the last ten (10) or (15) years. 

Their criminal actions and behavior have been proven without a doubt. So why has our Government been so slow in getting rid of these individuals that operate within our government? Why are they dragging their feet? Are they also protecting these persons like so many other Professionals do within their own area of expertise?

Medical Doctors, Teachers, Professors and many others have been backed up by their peers on many occasions.

There are many ways to relieve these people from their duties and responsibilities. Others in the Government that are not wanted are released, and no-one seems to create a big hassle about it!                                                       

Put them in jail for gosh sake, or send them home without their paycheck and pension! It has been done to others for less than what these people have been accused of, and has been proven as done without a reasonable doubt. 

What is mostly terrifying is that these are the very people that are trying to overthrow our revered Nation. May God help us!!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~~ BERT & ERNIE DISCUSS "GENERAL NONSENSE" ~~

Why does every business et al, all use "voice mail"? And don't blame the Pandemic. It's been around long before that damn Pandemic. Those answering systems are quite expensive.  And also very automatic with no warm Human Heart. Quite often the options they offer do not cover your reason for calling. And usually you get transferred to just another automatic answer!!

We all know a lot of people lost their jobs because of voice mail. Eventually, the Purchaser for the Company is   told, "the expense for the initial set up would be equal to what they are saving on payroll, and since wages increase all the time, they will be saving for a long time." and that's part of the sales pitch.

Now those who understand business, know the price for the system would also increase with time. And they also would know that the Human person answering the phone is much more likable than an old machine that says "....please listen carefully as our menu has changed...."!   So how many times a week do they change their menu? And why would they? That's a lot of nonsense! 

The cost's associated with the menu system will also go up just as payroll will. But that warm Human voice will be much more interested in why you are calling; and show more interest in what you are saying. Be it about whether a particular product is carried, or a question about the product and more importantly what to do about a problem you may be having with the product. The machine never can answer your question; and then you go through many transfers only to hear you are told to hang on to the phone for a person. Then they tell you "... due to unusual volume there will be a long wait for a representative....". Thirty minutes later a person comes on. You tell her your problem. She apologizes for not being able to help you directly but she will transfer you to someone who can (!!REALLY?) 

Now is the time to blow off steam. 

Quite likely there is someone monitoring the system? Not always, but quite often. So, say your piece, then "HOLLER" the name of their closest competitor and hang up. Whether or not that helps I don't know, but you feel a lot better. Then another day you can try another approach.

I have always found that by getting through to a higher up on the Company ladder usually gets the help you need. Keep plugging until you get who you want. And believe me, it will get you answers. Usually that person is so annoyed you got through to them, they will see to it you get satisfied. I, one time, got my letter right through to the top administrator, and yes, I received a hand written letter from that person promising to look into the problem, and a thank you for bringing it to light!!! YES, the problem was solved.

Some-times it takes a while to get to the right person, but believe me, it is well worth it. Even if only for the satisfaction. But I can assure you your problem will be resolved.

TUESDAY   MAY 12, 2020

On Sat. 4/25 I wrote an article about the current state of affairs in our Government due to this Virus. I said I would continue on 4/26; of course I never got to it. I think I got hung up on FACEBOOK for a while. I have used that media more than once just to keep in touch. And once again I find myself not to happy about it.

I was reminded recently that Zuckerberg left for China right after graduation, with his Chinese wife. Now let me remind all that I am not a racist nor bias person. I just call it as I see it. I understand that not all the apples are good, nor are they bad. I fully accept and realize that the vast majority of Chinese people, the hard-working folks just trying to eke out a decent living for themselves and their families, are basically good people. It is their leaders that I target with my attitude of distrust.

This also holds true for many other Nations on this Planet. I understand that Mr. Zuckerberg has initiated a new "Panel" to oversee the postings in FACEBOOK!! My problem with that is the theories and beliefs of the vast majority of this panel do not match my own Conservative Republican leanings.

I am appalled at the personal and financial devastation that the Corona Virus has caused; and the upheaval of so many lives on our Planet. Do I think this is all an accident? Absolutely not. I accept that a mistake at the Laboratory level may have been made. But I question the reason for developing such a sinister thing at all. And I question the rash and harsh punishment to those responsible for the accident.  I believe the release of this Virus was to be a finely controlled event with specific targets.

Perhaps there was a sinister reason for developing such a nasty chemical product. And perhaps it was conjured up by those who would destroy the United States of America, the strength and compassion of which gave hope to so many vulnerable Nations and Countries. Unfortunately we have those who would do anything to gain power, control and authority.

Such people are strongly intermingled within our Society and our Government. They have been for quite some time and were kept well concealed. But the years of penetrating into our Universities, indoctrinating the young of our Civilization into their ideologies, and convincing those among us considered to be minorities that they offer a better future, has begun to take it's toll. Consequently they have come out of hiding and blatantly profess their system to be the most honorable and receptive to those suffering such plights as poverty and ill health. 

My fellow Americans, regardless of politics or religion, let us stand together and fight off those who have integrated our Government and our Society, those who have defied our Constitutional Republic, those who seek to destroy and annihilate our Civilization. Do not fear them; fear no-one. We can and will overcome. We must only stick together and raise our voices to them, and use our vote to rid our Government of their evil voices. 

Our President is not perfect. He has and will make mistakes. But he is fighting for each and every one of us. That I truly and honestly believe. His strength and determination, his knowledge of the ways of Politics and Business, will prove to outlast the diversity he fights. But he must have our support. Like him or not, he is our path to regain our Country, and we must stay the course with him and his staff.

Follow your instincts; stay well to live and fight another day. God bless us all.

SATURDAY  MAY 9,  2020

12:22 PM     I respectfully suggest you do not count on reported "Poll Numbers" unless you are given ALL the information.

Like the gender, age, State, Political preference, EXACT number of folks polled, and date of poll!

It may sound like a lot, but it is imperative. I was following a polling organization, and suddenly found out they were only going to 400 people, and one particular political Party! ! ! ! ! ! ! There was no other information. I strongly repeat my suggestion to know who is taking the poll, and the details.      Jean

THURSDAY MAY 7, 2020                                          

12:29  PM    

I will be 'frank' here just to keep it simple. When a white individual is targeted by a Black, Latino or Asian siding with another to Black, Latino or Asian I consider that Reverse Racism. WE SHOULD HAVE NO RACISM in this Freedom and Liberty-driven Nation. We are all just Human.

I would consider many News publications as a constant user of Reverse Racism when they do not describe anyone of the Black, Asian or Latino communities as being Black, Asian or Latino.  But they will always be sure to indicate when the person is White.

I strongly object to discrimination. I have been offended, maligned, and assaulted by those who consider themselves to be the "norm" of our Society. I am acutely aware of the feelings of discrimination. We are who we are. This is US!  We are the Humans that reside on this beautiful Planet. And we must work together to preserve and protect it. Fighting among ourselves is the worse thing that we can do. Any member of a large family will know that to be a truism.

We are the most diverse Civilizations and Societies that have ever walked the Planet (as far as we know). I have survived my diversity with my own ingenuity and strength; I have not gone crying to the Government to punish those who do not like or agree with me. That is my battle to fight just as I have learned to fight off the Bullies. Many in my generation, and others before me, have had to fight off the Bullies of the world on their own for several reasons; such as skin color, accent, size, ethnic background, sexual differences, hair color or length, clothes etc. etc. We did not run screaming and crying to Mommy or Daddy, or the Government. It is part of growing and maturing.

Before I get off on a tangent and make this a Novel, I will wrap this up as I am only expressing feelings dominating me today.

Seeing on the late night News videos of the young lady referred to in my "PERSONAL STUFF ....." article, I was reminded and angered about the constant Reverse Racism I see in our World today. It has gone too far. And only we as individuals can fight the onslaughts which are set to dividing us for any silly or stupid reason. Those who create fear and upheaval in our Society must be stopped. And they must be stopped now. 

We are besieged with so many attempts to destroy our Constitutional Republic, that we as a Human Civilization and Society who revere our Freedoms and Liberties, must fight hard and long to stop those who wish for our demise. Our way here in the U.S.A. may not be perfect, but is the best on Earth. After we stop those who would be our destroyers, then we can review and debate our system to update things to conform with modern Man.

Our weapons of choice should be our speaking, and our voting.

TAKE CARE AND STAY WELL. STAY HEALTHY TO MAINTAIN OUR STRENGTH.

 11:15 AM     I see we have a group pushing to put Michelle Obama on Biden's ticket as his Vice Presidential running mate, who, according to many opinions would very shortly become President. OMG! No matter how much you like her, research her Bio; you will see she does not have the credentials to be the leader of the Western World. (Barack Obama would probably be right at her side.) Are you ready for another 8 years of Obama politics? He almost drove us into the ground. They are hoping for the Black vote. Voting for her may possibly be the most "Racist" action taken in this Country in over 200 years!!!!!!!

3:30 PM  Gov. Cuomo was granted a raise of $71,000.00 recently!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MON. MAY 4, 2020

Today, with my morning coffee, I read an article about our previous V.P. and current Presidential candidate Joe Biden. Kinda getting tired of all the sexual allegations that have become the "fill-in" articles for our untrustworthy Media, when they have nothing to complain about toward the Trump administration. Are they finally beginning to realize the attempts to oust Mr. Trump from the Oval Office is an exercise in futility?
There are times, increasing of late, that I cannot possibly believe or understand the outrageous behavior and words of the Democratic Liberal anti-Trump folks. Their blatantly public lies and hypocrisy; their actions as our Representatives in Congress; their direct and open allegations against those already in our current Administration, and the Citizens and residents of these great States that are suffering from the ramifications of this terrible Pandemic. They hold up measures and laws written to help these folks, in order to insert laws that will put ahead their agenda to get more and more Government control.
And yes, they actually have a great deal of control now with their majority votes in the House of Representatives.
I understand the protests of many citizens against the State Governments and this "lock-down". I also notice that most of the Governments experiencing these protests are Democratic. Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York is the one I see most since I reside in New York. I can only laugh at his hypocrisy, his childish behavior and his outright lies. He is an excellent speaker, as was his father. And it sometimes makes him quite believable. But one must look behind the scenes. Keep in mind that the group we call our Media, backs Cuomo, and all other Democrats, whose main purpose is to gain control of the Federal Government.
We can no longer believe the News Publications. It is time to rely on what we see and hear on Television and what we research ourselves. Then and only then can we ascertain the truth of what is being said. On Television look at the eyes, the facial expressions, the body language. Then go to opposing stations to see the other side. Follow your "gut", lean on your intuition, your values and morals.
The Democratic Party, back in the 1850's, broke from the Democratic-Republican Party of Jefferson, and claimed to be the Party of the working man. That didn't last long. They have been the 'party of themselves' for very, very long. Even as recent as 1964, when they openly and publicly claimed to be championing 'Civil Rights', and put forth a bill to bolster this movement, they were lying. Truth of the matter, when the vote for this bill was counted, it carried by the Republican vote. Very few of the Democrats supported it when out of the public eye.
The United States of America has grown to be very large over the many years. We must follow more closely our Government and what is actually going on there. We are a Country "of the people". We have the control. Our 'vote' is our most important ammunition. We cannot rely on everything we read.
Today, in the World of communication and Computers, we must take the time to follow the Government.
The Constitution gives us three branches of Government under the Democratic-Republic System. We have the Federal, the Legislature, and the Judicial. No one branch has total control. They oversee each other. Therefore we, as the people, have the control, mostly through our vote and through the Representatives we choose to put in the Congress. We have chosen the system of Capitalism to guide us, and it has worked well so far.
However, we must follow the Legislative Branch mostly. They have the main control. The Administration often has the last word, but our system of three (3) branches protects us.
If you do not have a Computer, your local Library is your connection to Washington D.C. Anyone there can help you get to a research section. You can follow the attendance and the voting record of each Representative.
Researching is fairly easy, and a tremendous tool for us to have control over our Government.
I would respectfully suggest everyone get in the habit of using it. We can no longer depend and rely on the Media to present us with the "moment of truth".
Just to inform you, I read and listen to as much as I can. Then I go to government research for rules and regulations; and for precedents of our Leaders, our laws, and our Constitution.
Then, and only then, can I make my own personal, informed decision.
Stay well, be informed, use your common sense to protect yourself and your family.
Jean

CONT'D FROM APR. 25, 2020 ------

--------- TO TODAY MONDAY APRIL 27, 2020

There are many 'conspiracy' theories out there; and it would be convenient to hop on one as an explanation as  to why there appears to be so many problems and discrepancies related to this Pandemic. As I indicated yesterday I tend to follow along with the fact that this situation has been in an uproar because it's intended purpose and target has been seriously mishandled by the "perpetrators"; The "cat got out of the bag" way before schedule, and like little kids all pointing the finger at each other, we have ended up with a mess that will be worse than any disease could cause. 

This is what we now have to live with; or I should say Dr. Birtz and V.P. Pence and Pres.Trump have to deal with? They have the heavy burden of doing the best that can be done for our Country. And we, as Citizens, should just put our trust in them, support them, and know they are doing their best. They have a terrible responsibility, and I truly believe they will give it their best for us, not selfishly for themselves or their political friends. 

I strongly feel that the Governors of the United States should put their personal agendas aside, and do what is best for their constituents and for the Country. Forget about Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Chuck Schumer. We can deal with that crowd in November. They no longer deserve our trust,  our support nor our vote. 

They have done very, very little work. They themselves should be on the unemployment line along with the citizens they have forced to be there. What do they care? They have a job. They continue to get their pay while they have deprived many of your friends, family and neighbors theirs, by not agreeing to the help that the Administration and the Senate have provided.

Let us stand together as brother and sister, let us stand together as friends and neighbors, let us stand together as Americans, and defend our Democratic Republic as so many have done, to preserve this great Nation for us!!!!!!! 

Stay well, enjoy the day.

Jean

Are you as disgusted as I am with all the ridiculous stuff going on in Washington D.C.?  In the most recent National Election I voted against Hillary Clinton. So therefore I voted for Trump. And it looks like I may have to do this again. Against Biden and for Trump. I don't mind Trump. He has his faults, of course, as we all do. But as a Leader I find him refreshing. No phony Political Party baloney. Although I realize that sometimes he has to back, and work with, the Republicans as they are the people behind him; they are the people financing his administration. They are the people getting his agenda done.

His agenda has not been so bad. He has kept the vast majority of his promises. He has done good for the Country, as he promised. Many complained that he was too much of a Nationalist. Well perhaps he is, as I believe he actually admitted as much himself. He referred to his agenda as that which promotes the Country ahead of the entire World. 

Well, perhaps the United States has been too much of a "worldly" Nation. We have always been there for those who needed our strength, both medically, militarily and morally. As I have said recently we seem to be the "First Responders" for others on the Planet when needed. But there have been many times in the past several decades, when we have caved to others just to keep the peace; or maybe I should say to keep everyone "liking" us. 

Any group, whether it be a trio, a Nation or a Continent, must have a leader. We are all very familiar with the old concept of "too many Cooks in the kitchen" spoiling the Stew. And that holds true under any circumstances. 

As the one Nation on the Planet with the strength, the fortitude, the willingness and the compassion to help others in their time of need, we are obligated by the very structure of our Humanity to reach out to those calling for help. We encompass most of the wealthiest people on Earth, and we appear to have the most diverse and abundant natural resources to sustain ourselves. It is my opinion that many of our leaders in the past have been willing to accept the responsibility of being the "Leader of the Western World". But, alas, there have also been those who have abused this power. They have abused it for their own personal gain.

President Trump, during his campaign for office, promised to "... drain the swamp ..."! I think possibly no one realized just how vast the "swamp" extended. But as a prominent and successful Businessman both here and Internationally, he was very much aware of the magnitude of the problem. And there were many others in his vast sector of Society realizing it also; and I believe they had something to do with putting him in office. They knew he had the strength morally and physically, and yes the intelligence, to bring America back to the Republic that our Founders intended; the Democratic Republic that fostered the Freedoms, Liberties and Rights of all Human Beings, to live a peaceful and profitable existence; a self reliant and Christian-Judeo life, while also respectfully worshiping alongside other beliefs.

Today, my friends, we are faced with an enemy (not the Virus) so wide-spread, so vicious and selfishly "mad",  that they will stop at nothing to get what they want. And what they want, if they do get it, will not be sustainable under their leadership and rule. They think that all it will take is to step onto our shores, and enjoy the life that we have maintained; the life that our Ancestors fought and died and sacrificed for. That many today are fighting and sacrificing for. They have no clue how to maintain it.

They certainly know how to fight in a nasty devious way to get what they want. They know how to step on others, to kill others to get what they want. But all they will accomplish is to destroy the World as we know it today.

And so, today, my fellow Americans, if you think the theory that this Virus we are fighting is just a natural malady, I would seriously suggest that you step back and see what is actually going on. The very virus itself was not meant to be a world-wide pandemic. Although it was meant to cover most of the "Western World". But someone made a mistake. Someone dropped the "ball". And the host Nation tried to cover it up. And they bungled that. And now we have a mess.

THIS WILL BE CONTINUED ON SUNDAY APRIL 26. 

Jean
