ANGRY OLD BROAD'S AT IT AGAIN


 By: JEAN F. COULARD    MONDAY 12/6/21  EDITED 12/8/21 

Parenting is a tremendous responsibility. And those who cannot handle it should not go anywhere near it. Abortion should not be an option, as killing your mistakes is something one should not even think about. 

What is the answer? In my opinion, abortion should not exist in the Human equation.  

I believe God did not allow for the murder of Human Beings. And yes, I also think abortion is equivalent to murder. The fetus is a viable organism in the womb, using the necessary-to-life functions as supplied by the host, its mother. Like any plant or animal given to God’s Earth, it should be allowed to grow and function to its fullest potential. No man should have the right to determine when a life should be ended. Obliterating any life because it does not measure up to a standard is the work of Satan, in my opinion. The decision to maintain or abort an energy throughout the processes occurring within the womb is not for Man himself to make. The process is for God and God alone to control. We accept all other trials and tribulations he has given and produce the best we can with what is sent our way. If the continuation of the process appears to threaten the host’s life, then it should be her choice and her option alone to save or not the fetus. 

I have seen scenarios where more than one Doctor counseled the mother to abort. In one such case, the mother was told the child would not be normal, physically or mentally. The mother opted to go through with the pregnancy, and today this young life is headed to college. She is fine, fit, and normal mentally and physically. In another instance, a Doctor informed a young mother that she would give birth to a daughter. It turned out to be twin boys!  

Doctors are Human and cannot predict the outcome of pregnancy with a certain absolute. My current opinion is that abortion is, at some point in time, murder. We have no right to take away the future of these little people. They have every right to enter our world and achieve as they may; they are fully formed Humans at an early stage, taking oxygen and nourishment from the mother and functioning with a tiny heart beating. They are not, of course, ready to survive in the outer world but prevailing in the womb and living a life growing and preparing for the external world. Yes, we gave them existence, but that does not permit us to murder them.  

Again, parenting is a tremendous responsibility. And instead of being so entrenched on political issues and individual social policies, our educational “experts” must return to the three “R’s.” They must return to the purpose of life itself, which is the perpetuation of the human species according to the Laws of God and Man.  

Now that our Supreme Court is hearing arguments for and against abortion laws, we will have a ruling to decide about this long-standing question once and for all. I find it is just sad and painful that they will not have a response until June of 2022. 

Not only is it painful, but it is also unacceptable to deliberate so long. How many infants will be lost while we wait? How many lives disrupted? Our Government is far too bureaucratic. That is a full seven months away. Much, much too long. If a panel of Jurors took as long to decide the many trials we have each day, we would be hard-pressed to handle the system. As it is now, we have such a backlog that way too many people are kept incarcerated for way too long  while the obvious guilty persons are released. We need to get control of this.

Perhaps this should be passed over to the individual State Legislatures. We shall see. GOD BLESS Jean F. Coulard  12/6/21

I am still ranking on the Medical profession. As a senior citizen, who depends on the Doctors, Nurses, and Pharmacies to keep the old ticker bouncing and the red goo in my veins racing along inside my weary old body; I find it more stressful communicating and dealing with them than when my TV channel was changed by some Nerd siting back in the studio decided on their own to move my channel from one station to another cause he thought it was more entertaining.

By way of explanation on this subject let me say this: I did not subscribe to the usual expensive football package due to all the nonsense these "bulky" brainless millionaire monsters and their controllers, including Mr.  Kaepernick and his "knee resting" have inserted into my entertainment. They have spewed out their nonsense and their political views into our precious American sports. Many of us depended on the sports entertainment to help us unwind from our daily hectic lives. 

Since Football and Baseball are very high on the radar for being America's two favorite sports; they are also a way of creating friendly get-togethers of family and friends. Rooting for and against each others favorites also promotes a friendly rivalry. Just a good time for everybody. Even the tailgaters that stand outside and party in the parking lots meet and make new friends. By inserting political rivalry into these get-togethers we have ignited  a devastating effect on our Social interactions.

Yesterday I was watching my favorites, the Dallas Cowboys, when suddenly, with about 3 or 4 minutes left, the channel was changed by the studio. I went ballistic at that point. My one and only question: just who had the nerve and audacity to change the channel on MY TV set, that I had installed in MY home, connected to MY power supply? Does such an act open the door to my having no choice as to what I may watch.? They assumed the game was boring, but what did I prefer? There were some rookies put into the game at that point, that I was interested in seeing their performance. 

Once again we see the over-reaching by power-hungry controlling people; those so lacking in personal confidence, that they must control every aspect of everything within their "space" to insure their "comfort" zone! We seem to be loosing our freedom of choice as it is being chipped away each and every day, just a little at a time so it won't be too noticeable.

 I am interrupting my current Newsletter about the beautiful, lovable Elephants in our world to briefly speak of what I consider a serious problem within our medical establishment today. Some may see a political tone to this. Be that as it may, the political is not intended. Your perception is yours to explain if you consider the Medical system as an arm of the Political system.  I must tell you:   

###  I read an article this morning where Tucker Carlson suffered severe back pain, which powerful pain killers did not alleviate. He ended up having “emergency back surgery” on Wednesday morning and returned to work on his Wednesday evening show!!!!! The first thing that came to my mind was that President Reagan was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. He secretly went to Germany, where he received a treatment unknown to the general public at that time and was subsequently free of Cancer!!!  President Trump was diagnosed with the infamous Covid 19 virus, spent a few days in the hospital, treated with Therapeutics, released, and returned to work shortly afterward.   Our so-called medical experts seem to have immersed themselves into our Government through persuasion and thereby control our health with mandates, laws, and whatever else they can find to force us to use their miracle drugs and rehabilitation maneuvers and protocols. They have an anti-virus shot for this Covid 19 affliction that does not completely protect us from the virus, so we need two or three ‘booster’ shots. In addition, some doctors tell us that the mask does not help, and others say it makes matters worse. We are told those who refuse the vaccination are a danger to those that have had the immunization!!??! 

Wait a minute!! HOLD THE PRESSES!!!  Folks,  we now have a pill to fight the virus. You only take three a day, plus one other different pill to help the three you have taken. That makes Four (4) Pills per day. I believe the duration of the pills was two weeks. But I am not sure of that. And no one, absolutely no one from the Medical establishment, knows anything about the long-term effects of any of these immunization or oral medications that are supposedly protecting us. And now they want to put this “stuff” into our five-year-olds!!!   So tell me, please, who is paying for all these vaccinations we must have? Who is paying for the testing we must have? Employers say the employee must pay for the testing ($107.00 weekly) if you don’t get the shot. And I believe the Pharmaceutical companies  will be charging you and me for the pills. Of course, the Insurance companies will cover some of the costs for all of this. But then they will have to raise our premiums to cover all this expense they will be having for all the pills and shots. Of course, we all know that our tax dollars will subsequently pay for most of this, and our pockets will take up the balance.   

I share this personal opinion with you, not for political purposes, but due to my current displeasure with the medical establishment, which I refer to as a “corporate conglomeration.” I have been fighting for my life (oxygen actually) to receive proper care at home, but my medical company will not cover the expense. The necessary testing must be done at a medical facility, wherein the readings will be different from my home and geographical surroundings in Thurman, N.Y. I now know the actual effect of being between a rock and a hard place. Use your common sense. Take care of yourself. 

God Bless!!!!!

  ONE ARTICLE PUT ME ON THE “SOAPBOX” 

From NEWSMAX Tuesday, October 12, 2021 

Home | Newsfront Tags: gang | guns | purchase | death settlement 

Mother Uses Settlement From Son's Death to Buy Guns for Other Son's Gang 

If you haven’t read this article, I respectfully suggest you look it up and read it in its’ entirety. In my opinion, it indicates how our current Government Administration implements its plan to have total control over our Society—using the Justice System from the ‘top down’ to fracture our freedoms and liberties and install a massive wedge in our individuality. The young man made a mistake ‘running’ from the Police. They had every right to assume he was guilty since he ran away. From start to finish, the entire situation should be thrown out of court. Anti-Government organizations used it, and the LEFT went along with them to gain their support in upcoming elections. 

###  That’s the world we are forced to live in now. Don’t wait for the elections. Too much can happen by then!  And it will continue until we, the people, do something about it! Boycotting seems to be catching on. Avoid the WOKE-supporting corporations and those that try to sell products “MADE IN CHINA.” Support Small Business. Cut back on your car fuel. Car-pool if you can. One combined errand is better than five little trips. Our Justice Dept. is as corrupt as our National Security systems, which is a serious concern to me. Stop this blatant disregard and manipulation of our Constitution. It will be a monumental task, but we must find a way. Our Representatives in Congress appear to be in fear of stepping up to face the problem head-on. Do they not realize the people will be right behind them? What is it they fear? And my biggest question is to President Trump: I thought you had our backs. You also seem to fear doing what is necessary to stop this travesty of Justice and our Constitution! What happened to “DRAIN THE SWAMP”? 

Stay strong! Stay together! WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sharing with you a few comments and thoughts. I will try to do this more than just once a week to keep 

it timely and fresh in your mind, and it will be easier if you wish to find any articles. 

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


US POLITICS AND NEWS     Last updated Oct 1, 2021  

“ .. An Unvaccinated Nurse is Better Than No Nurse at All .. ’’

 Quote from article out of context  “ ….. They’re being stripped of their incomes, their health insurance, and their benefits. These are, of course, the exact same nurses who worked all the way through 2020 while being un-vaccinated – and they were hailed as heroes for doing so ….. ”  end quote of partial words from the article.

####  I wish to share with you my response, slightly edited by myself, to the words shared above. 

“(….. Don't you understand?? The mandates don't pertain to the vaccine. They are just another underhanded ploy to affect our Economy and our lives!!! When enough police dept's and State Trooper squads are depleted, the Government can bring in the National Guard and declare them "Government Police Forces", AKA Gestapo. 

These “mandates” will highly affect small businesses, and many will be forced to shut their doors. And their employees will be out of work as will the medical staffs of our Hospitals. And the crazy Anti-American Liberals will have a repeat of NAZI GERMANY!! .....)” 

Fear and deception are the two primary weapons of the Democratic Socialists. Much of their lies and deceit are just cloud cover for their diabolical, carefully orchestrated plan to destroy our Society through the Economy and take complete control of our Country and all the resources we have. 

The  “Left” faction that we have now in Government has been very open in their actions and public comments. I believe that they are aware of the lack of opposition in Congress to their agenda!!! I implore you please read between the lines when perusing the latest news articles. Where are those we elected, those we financially support, those we sent to D.C. to represent “ we the people “??? 

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

“Leftists chase Senator Sinema Into Bathroom, Record her While demanding she pass Biden Agenda.”

#### How about this headline from the “Daily Wire”????? You should read the article that follows it. How disgusting and despicable are these Liberal Leftist Democrats getting? How proud are those of you that supported Biden and his cohorts in the “election”? Are you not adult enough to admit your mistake and call for his impeachment as should be done? This, to me, makes Joy Behar appear to have a Halo over her head. If you don’t believe it, you, my friend, are one of the weaklings who only read headlines and accept whatever your “group” says. The video was shown in many news articles. And the cameraman, who was also following her, was right in there. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Fauci Warns People About Christmas... 

####  Now, who is this supposed medical expert??? The fellow that we see almost every day telling us how to live long and well. Dr. Fauci is the man of whom I speak. He appears to be the medical guru of the Media and our supposedly elected Government. I am pretty sick and tired of being assaulted by this supposed "doctor-in-chief". 

He is not the new National Surgeon General, the know-all medicine man, nor the special doctor to anyone in particular. He is just another well-paid coat-tail hanger to further the cause and agenda of the Liberal Socialistic Democrats we now have taking up space in our Government. Time to start the protests against this Narcissistic being that the Left keeps throwing into our faces with his random waffling and constant hypercritical remarks. And don’t expect the “investigating” committee in Congress to go anywhere with the latest question and answer exercise. I feel these sessions are just a way of keeping their faces on the screen and their names in the forefront of the public domain. 

With these thoughts and comments, I will now leave you to the rest of your day. Enjoy! 

Stay well. Stand up for your rights. God Bless.

MAY I REMIND YOU, PLEASE?   “….. this land is your land, this land is my land, from California to the New York Highlands…..”   

It belongs to ‘.. we the people ..’! We pay the taxes to finance our way of life. We work the fields to feed ourselves and our children. We build and maintain the roads and highways to support our travels and transport our goods throughout our land. We work in the factories, and we educate our children. We give them the entire history of our great Nation. We will not hide our mistakes as they may learn from them. 

We serve no man. And each shall serve his own God, or no God, as he chooses. 

There is no authority in our Constitution referred to as “Unions”. There is no authority in our Constitution called Politician or Political Party. We own this land and will continue to govern ourselves as we see fit. No one man, institution, or organization shall rule over us.  

We hold dear our freedoms and liberties and will defend our right to bear arms to protect them, our families, our land, and ourselves. We will fight to the death to continue this land of opportunity and prosperity for our children and those that shall follow. 

I give no threat, but a warning and promise to those among us and those who would violate our borders, do not tread on our flag, do not spread your evil on our land……          

GET OUT OF MY HOME         

 GET OUT OF MY SCHOOLS          

GET OUT OF MY POCKETS          

GET OUT OF MY GOVERNMENT AND ITS’ INSTITUTIONS   


God bless America, her people, and her children!

JOY REID ON WHY PEOPLE CARE ABOUT GABBY PETITO: THEY’RE SUFFERING FROM ‘MISSING WHITE WOMAN SYNDROME’ 

###  I read the entire article under this headline, and I must comment that I am so completely tired of the rich and famous Black women commenting on whatever brings attention to them. I am also quite disgusted by their constant “oppression-encouraging” words. If they were so oppressed, how did they arrive at their success? Was it money, personal favors, ‘name-dropping’ or just plain old education that they achieved on their own????? Or did they achieve the education with entitlement money?? These women, in my opinion, are treating their own communities as though they are dumb and unsophisticated,  much the same as they are when calling photo ID voting as racist. They already have photo IDs for driving licenses, among many others. Instead of reading the ‘gossip’ columns, I suggest their readers find out what the many qualified Black reporters and analysts are saying. 

###  In a recent article, I questioned “...why the Haitians” were being sent back to their ravaged homeland…”; I have just been informed that it is because they are most often Republican voters!!!    

###  McConnell has been a thorn in the side of many mainstream Republicans. His weak demeanor and waffling attitude have become a sad commentary to the Republicans. But like little children, many Representatives hesitate to go against what they consider to be “BIG DADDY.” It is past time for a change. We need mature and educated support, but not that considered as blanket acceptance. Yes, we should hear all versions, but when the supposed leader does not stand firm with the President, his Cabinet, and his party, the Senate must consider a change. 

###  Buying products that have the store name is something I intend to avoid as part of my recent “prayer extension.” I recently went to several stores looking for a product that I have been using for many years and could not find the original. I finally purchased the product under the ‘store name’.The quality has no comparison to the original offered by the manufacturer, and the price, in my opinion, is not worth it. And when you search for a place of origin, and you read “… imported …” instead of a Country, watch out!!! Then you know where it originates, do you not??? Why support an adversary, a Country that mistreats its population, a Country that is hell-bent on overtaking us??? 

I strongly support buying  'made in the USA' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

GOVERNMENT OVERPOWERS CITIZENS ???!!!

Too much control. 

###  Jerome Adams, the former surgeon general under Trump who has criticized President Joe Biden’s handling of COVID-19, alleges he was denied the opportunity to refinance his mortgage after the government refused to verify his previous employment in the high-profile role. Quote: “ ….. I’m having an issue verifying your employment as the US Surgeon General. I used both addresses provided, and the US Dept of Health and Humans Services was unwilling to provide the verification ….. ”. End of quote; the unidentified party wrote, in response. 

###  A similar situation happened recently to retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who was dropped from Chase Bank as a credit card customer for “reputational risk” to the institution, though the company later claimed it was done in error. 


 PATRIOTIC TIMES  9/23/21…. GOP Finally Gives Biden The Boot – And Nothing Can Stop Them Now ….

###  “Baloney,” that’s my comment to this article about three Republicans that filed articles of impeachment against Biden. As a registered Republican voter, I am thoroughly disgusted. The GOP has done nothing but talk, talk, and more talk. What good is submitting something and then making a negative comment about it? Maybe it’s just your way of saying to your “friends” in Congress “ …. Don’t worry guys and gals, we’re just appeasing our constituents ….”. We’re still with you. They’re all together in the ‘swamp’!! I repeat these words over and over again: They are all together. Trump has learned to play the game. Although I will say that I still believe he will put America first if in office. I feel he is spending too much time and effort on going by and with the untrustworthy Bureaucrats in DC. Time to get back in the “Business” mode and the Devil with all the backstabbing and lies. Believe no-one. Trust yourself. Do what you feel is best. Don’t rely on those that stabbed you in the past, and recognize those that may in the future.

GOD BLESS

AN EXTENSION TO MY DAILY PRAYER 

###  I intend to exercise my Constitutional rights in all matters. I will pay no mind to dictates, mandates, and other such intimidations by the Government. Congress must pass it to earn my acceptance. I will also dismiss personal words of abomination by the Media toward any public figure. We need only for them (the Media) to report the events as they may occur and quotes as may be said. Their opinion is not necessary unless, of course, it is stated briefly as their opinion. I shall, of course, do so within the laws of my Community, State, and Nation.   

CRIME IS CRIME; NAMING IT DOESN’T CHANGE IT 

###  I question the notion of “Hate Crime.” It is not a “Hate Crime” until determined as such by the investigating persons. The Media takes great latitude in reporting almost any situation as it pertains to their need for attention. And we should not support those who impose their thoughts on us as the “gospel truth.” I believe it to be imperative to give skin color when supplying a description to the Police. The more information they have, the sooner they can get this criminal off the streets. Approximate age, vehicle, and clothing descriptions are also quite helpful. Too many groups and organizations are telling the Police how to do their job. They are well trained and prepared when they set out on the streets. They must also be protective of themselves so they can protect you and me. Common sense here is a given. 

CALIFORNIA NEEDS ALL AMERICANS TO HELP 

###  Newsom couldn’t run on his record, so he and the Democrats resorted to cheap slander instead, once again, using the name “TRUMP.” Larry Elder came in too late, and it appears he didn’t have the best advisors. He should have catered to those who worked so hard to recall instead of reiterating the many things Newsom did that were not aiding his constituents. The “signature-getters” should have been his advisors.  

 TO SEN. RUBIO:  *****  ACTIONS, PLEASE, NOT WORDS ON TWITTER!!!!  

###  “Antibody treatments aren’t a substitute for vaccines, but they have prevented thousands of hospitalizations, including in breakthrough cases,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) posted on Twitter. “Now, in a move that reeks of partisan payback against states like Florida, the Biden administration is rationing these treatments.” 

LETTERS CAN BE SHREDDED > > > ACTIONS ARE PERMANENT!!!! 

###  State Attorneys General (24) have signed a letter to the Government opposing the Biden administration’s plan to “….. require employers with 100 or more employees to have workers get vaccinated against COVID-19 or get tested weekly…..”. The letter came from the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.  

 HAITIAN IMMIGRANTS WILL BE SENT HOME???!!! 

###  Our Government is working on plans to send many thousands of Haitian immigrants back to their homeland. They have been depicted in photos in the News gathering under a bridge near a Texas border city. I question why this group, from a Country that has suffered ravaging results from Mother Nature recently, are being turned away, while drug dealers, human traffickers, terrorists, and criminals are seeing “open gates” to come into our Country.   

FOX NEWS  SAT 9/18/21  DEMS EXPRESS CONFIDENCE IN THE 2022 ELECTION!! 

###  Nancy Pelosi has indicated she is ‘very confident’ in the ability of the Democratic Party to maintain the House majority in 2022. Of course she is. Any leader worth their weight in salt will talk with confidence publicly. And in my opinion, I fear she may be right as I speak of a Political Party that has exhibited criminality in the past and gotten away with it. I am referring to theft, lies, character assassinations, manipulations of Constitutional laws, and yes, even murder as suggested by those who speak publicly.   

IS OUR MILITARY “SLEEPING” WITH PRIVATE CONTRACTORS????? 

###  It is a nasty thought, yes, but it is possible as they have worked together at times in defense of our Nation. And of course, we thank them for their assistance. But it has also been intimated that they have more control of decisions than is necessary.  I share these thoughts in light of the recent actions of General Milley, the head of the Military Chiefs of Staff. While many in Congress and other Governmental entities call for his resignation, we see our (?????)-in-Chief showing support for him. Now I question whether this is sincere or protective, considering the recent embarrassment to our Country due to the Afghanistan withdrawal.   

MY THOUGHTS AND OPINION: 

Except for FOX and NEWSMAX, I receive my information mainly from the least prominent publications. Sometimes I am not so sure about the two mentioned first. I find that more than one reporter covers many of the issues I read, and therefore I get a difference of opinion. Speaker Pelosi is wrong in her assertion that lawmakers should just “…..vote and then read…..”!!! Every voter should read and read and read as much as possible and get all versions before making their own decision. Do we not depend on our Leaders to debate and consult; does not our President have a “cabinet” to discuss and debate before decisions?  We have been considered a two-party Nation, but I can’t entirely agree with that. It has always been a deterrent to good governing when the Party controlling the Oval Office has all the power. The bipartisan ruling system seems to be a thing of the past in our Country. And that is, to me, an unfortunate commentary to make. I blame this on The Media. They are wholly and constantly pushing an agenda of hate and separation to our Society. Such headlines sell newspapers and TV analytics. And Politicians subscribe to their actions as they have an innate need to receive recognition from these publications. Is it time for our Government to come down hard on George Soros???? What or who gives him the protection that he enjoys???? And Why???? At one time, it was Hitler.   

Stay well, my friends. And please BOYCOTT > BOYCOTT > BOYCOTT > BOYCOTT (especially CHINA!!!!!)

###  Since “Regime” has often denoted a Dictatorship or Tyrannical Government, I will not be a party to using the term. Keep in mind that our Media, those who continue forcing this term on us in their articles, are not reporting the news to us. They are informing us of their opinion with the explicit intent to have their words accepted as truth and  “gospel.” 

I am also Unsubscribing to any publication that promotes the current administration as the responsible and honest Government of the U.S.A. I do not watch NBC, CBS, CNN or ABC. I do make one exception as I tune in to ABC for evening LOCAL news at 6:00 PM. 

I am strongly advocating the method of BOYCOTTING to fight against the so-called WOKE way of life. In my opinion, this is more than Socialism. It is a Marxist Dictatorship bordering on Communism. To boycott is the only manner I can employ, along with my words. I ask those who agree or disagree with me to please share my comments with as many as possible. 

I will remind those who did not hear or see President Trump (in a previous time and place) when he suggested we do this; he did not use the actual word BOYCOTT, and I commend him for that. It would not have been appropriate for a previous President to speak in that way. 

It is my personal opinion that the Corporations subscribing to this WOKE position may be extreme Capitalists who have lost their way. They pay homage to whatever will bolster up their profits. Perhaps by boycotting, we will convince them that we are downright serious in maintaining our freedoms and liberties. Considering what our ancestors and Founders sacrificed to give us The Constitutional Republic that has endured for so many years, it is not so much to ask of our people today. We would not be turning our backs on the many good things in life we have had; we are only taking a temporary pause to set things right again. 

Remembering the time in History that we just commemorated with honor, emotion, love of our freedoms, and extreme tribute to those who gave so much and endured so much, let us carry forward our promise NEVER to FORGET. As Americans, we have always risen to the occasion. It is time to rise once again!!! Together we can do it. 

GOD BLESS US ALL !!!

##### NFL PLAYS BLACK NATIONAL ANTHEM

Why has the NFL decided to pamper a known anti-American organization? Giving them free advertising and constant exposure is in my opinion a close-to-treason act. If they want to be supportive and community-conscience, how about supporting some really needy charities? There are many for children's diseases that could use some help. And what about the not-so-oft-heard-of community groups for disadvantaged youths?  Among others in need of support we have SPECIAL OLYMPICS, SONS WITHOUT FATHERS, and of course let's not forget The Red Cross or the Salvation Army. 

Come on folks. Why are we putting up with this nonsense? Get the politics out of our entertainment. Stop pushing your own personal agenda on me. I don't appreciate it! I won't support it. In supporting it I am just as guilty as those pushing it. I love my country; it has given me a wonderful life. For those that think they are oppressed I can only suggest that you grow up. You are acting like the Marxist characters that are trying to take over our Nation. Just because you have not fared so well in life, don't blame everyone else. You are banding together for the comfort of "safety in numbers". Get on your own two feet and be responsible for yourself. The World owes you nothing.

You have friends, family and neighbors to step up and help you through bad times. That is the one thing that we as responsible Human Beings do; we help each other. Just don't demand or expect the entire Planet to stop everything and change the rules just for you. 

Turn off all your "remote" gadgets, get your lazy rump out of the easy chair, and do something constructive for yourself, your family, your friends and neighbors. 

Our entire Country is in need of help right now. A sad mistake was made in our last election. The man put in the Oval Office was not fit to lead. I blame mostly his family for letting this happen, as they sat back and watched the mockery continue. Just another example of what I allude to when I refer to others pushing their personal agenda. Use the old man to get what they want. The corruption in our Government has gotten out of hand. And it appears no one knows quite how to handle it. A large faction of Society has decided that the rest of us must live according to their rules. Well, we have a Constitution that has given us a pretty good life so far; so good that millions are trying to join our little corner of the World. The large faction I refer to is allowing these poor folks in just to get their support in the way of a vote. Then they will be pushed aside and to hell with them too.

You get the picture I'm sure. No need to continue on with the same old worlds day in and day out. I have a suggestion: A good read for today's trials and tribulations is a book by Mark Levin titled American Marxism. You don't have to read the entire publication to get the picture. Try just the first chapter, and then read the seventh. Those two alone will be enough to get you moving; if not then you my friend are a lost cause. I have a copy if anyone would like to borrow it and not buy the entire book.

WAKE UP!  GROW UP!  STAND UP!

By Jean Coulard  9/9/21 

Following are a few words out of context from a “YouGov” poll within a NEWSMAX article of today 9/9/21: 

 ....Just 39% approve of Biden's overall job performance and a near majority (49%) disapprove; the 10-point negative rating is the first time Biden has been underwater during his eight-month presidency, according to the poll results…. …. The collapse in the overall approval rating represents a six-point drop in just one week, and Democrats were even more inclined to drop their approval in a nine-point swing, from 86% down to 77%.... 

“There are many reasons for Biden’s slump: economic concerns, the continuing COVID-19 surge and restrictions, reminders of past terrorist attacks, and the difficulties that arose in the pullout from Afghanistan," YouGov pollsters wrote in their analysis…..  end of quote. 

###  I share this with you to again ask the question:  How can any true, educated, intelligent American constantly rile about the current or previous Administration in such a vile and nasty way as I see on so many public personal commentaries? Not liking someone personally is no reason to bash them in such a terrible and nasty manner. Their demeanor, while it is important in a diplomatic sense, should be low on the list of attributes in my opinion. And your opinion, I believe, should be based on reading ALL articles, or as many as possible, so you get as many opinions and information as possible. Our Representatives should be considered and judged on their job performance. 

I cannot be more insistent in my opinion also that ‘party line’ voting is not a ‘common sense’ approach in our Democracy. Choice is still one of our treasured freedoms. And anyone that allows, accepts and follows such policies of that Political Party or organization,  has abandoned their most precious freedoms and liberties; as they are the framework of our Constitutional Republic. 

If one chooses such a method and allows the government, or any organization to control them in that manner, then I would suggest you tone down your rhetoric so as not to influence our young or the weak among us. While you of course, as a citizen, have the right to your opinion, I will oppose you in any manner acceptable by our Law-Abiding Society when you begin to threaten or force others to adhere to your way. 

###   WELL, LET’S TALK ABOUT AGE   and    WHY NOT?? It’s something we are born with, live with, and die with. But we should not let it be the cause of our death. According to our Bibles, many of our Humans in the past, we are told, lived well into their hundreds. Possibly over five hundred. And why do you suppose that was? How about thinking of the ravages of ‘stress’?? Give it some thought. Go ahead. I’ll give you a few minutes while I pour myself a piping hot cup of caffeine-filled coffee! OK! So lets see now; recently I commented, in my opinion, that stress affects our vital organs and causes deterioration. I continue to have this very same opinion. I have been monitoring my own reactions to stress and have proven to myself that stress does have a strong negative reaction to our very health. It follows therefore, that our Ancestors, having no or very little stress compared to ourselves, may possibly have lived a very long and somewhat stress-free life.    

 ###   NEWSOM  MUST BE RECALLED     The events in California are very indicative of the current events in our Country. Party affiliation aside, this situation has gotten out of hand. Here is a man who abused his power and status as Governor in a blatantly obvious manner. I question which is worse, Cuomo of New York or Newsom of California? In my opinion both are quite un-acceptable. The challenger to Newsom, Larry Elder, is basically a newcomer in the public arena of political speaking and personal campaigning, and that may be a handicap to him. However, most Politicians are afraid of newcomers, and they don’t want their life upset. They are comfortable and confident in their place in the world. Elder would upset the balance of power in the Senate if elected. This will be a much-watched election. Stay tuned for the outcome!! 

That’s it for now folks. It’s a cloudy day, so make your own sunshine. 

God Bless Jean

***** NOTE: There is a separate article in THURMAN page for those not receiving NEWSLETTER.

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


By now you have all seen this image. And what was your response? Did you, once again say somebody has to do something!? Oh sure, and who is that "somebody"? Obviously it's not anybody in Washington, or the Military, or the Dept. of Defense. Certainly not RINO's. They are just a bunch of two faced cowards.

I understand there are those (surviving families) that were quite upset with Bidens' words to them at the service when receiving the returning military caskets. Seems some parents did not even stay for his words, and others angry as he only mentioned, once again, his son Beau. 

I for one, am a believer of something larger than our life here on this Earth. I also believe that something larger has a way of dishing out praise and punishment. I have seen situations that have strengthened that belief. Did Joe Biden get punished by losing his wife and child in a horrific accident years passed?; and was he also punished by losing his good son to cancer?; and is it also punishment by leaving that piece of 'nothingness' as his only remaining child here on this good Earth to watch and wallow in anguish?????

If so, then I also believe that we have not seen all of the punishment as of yet. I hope I live to see the day!!!! And I believe that those in D.C. will receive their punishment for their actions of the last two weeks. We have, my friends, a group of "lower-than-life" people in our Government. I see these folks as a group controlled by Satan himself; a group of two-faced, back-stabbing, mentally diminished Humans that have no feelings, no compassion and no sense of reasoning for anything other than power and a sickening need to control the Universe.

My words here are just a brief note to my fellow Humans. Sometimes it feels good just to let it out.

Later - my friends.

Stay well and pray for everyone that has sustained loss at the hands of those in D.C.

THURMAN OPINIONS & COMMENTS


                                                                                        THURMAN IS STUCK IN THE PAST
Jean F. Coulard
Nov. 3, 2021
I am my own person. I have always been one to “say what I mean and mean what I say”! Realizing that is not acceptable to many, I still refuse to change.
I don’t subscribe to phoniness, lying, nor being a hypocrite. I have lost acquaintances because of this, but never have I lost a friend.
My recent statement that I would no longer comment on politics must be put on hold for now. That being said, I submit my opinion on the recent local elections in Thurman.
We have had less than half of the eligible voters in Thurman turn out to exercise their right to vote. That in itself is embarrassing and unacceptable. I submit that those who did not vote had best keep their opinions concerning the actions of the Town Board to themselves. Freedom of speech may be a right, but the act of voting is a responsibility.
Choosing or refusing to vote for a Board member for personal reasons and misguided gossip is, in my opinion, a very irresponsible, immature, childish action.
Once again, Thurman has turned their back on an intelligent and fair individual, one who has been active in community events and volunteerism, one who has shown the ability to research facts and arrive at a reasonable conclusion.
In my opinion, Thurman has sent a veritable “slap-in-the-face” to a dedicated Town resident in favor of an individual that should have been relieved of previous and all duty on the Board for disgusting public comments on social media. He was running to keep his seat, but it was pretty noticeable that a last-minute candidate was convinced to run to take votes away from his challenger.
Shame on those of you that did not exercise your right to vote. You have ignored your responsibility and become a part of the problem. Unfortunately, the rest of us must know and feel the disgrace and the issues you have put upon us.
God bless those of you that genuinely care and appreciate this beautiful town.
Stay healthy. Be warm. Be there for your neighbors that may need you this coming Winter.
Jean

TO MY FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS IN THURMAN AND THROUGHOUT AMERICA

by Jean Coulard 8/28/21

Sitting here in Thurman, N.Y., in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains on a rainy Saturday, can be dreary and bleak for some. But think of others on this Planet, and in our thoughts thank God for what we have here.
Afghanistan seems like a world away. But what we see on TV is still heartbreaking. I pray for those many souls. I have read about the Vets that have gone out of their way against words of advice, to rescue so many Afghanians that worked for them in the past. I applaud Glen Beck for his untiring efforts in also helping many Christians to get out. I also applaud those here at home that have opened their doors and their hearts to many citizens of Afghanistan coming to our shores after leaving every trace of themselves, their homes, and their neighborhood. Volunteers are coming forth to offer a roof over their head and a warm place to sleep safely.
This shows me that the true spirit of America is still with us.
I have these thoughts after an exchange of articles with a friend and neighbor. I did not realize that this person, for whom I have the greatest respect and love, was on a different level of political views than I.
The exchanges were friendly and very informative. We exchanged the different articles that we each have been reading. I was extremely astonished at the difference. We are all aware of course, that there is not too much truth in our Media today. But this exercise in exchange that I was part of yesterday was astonishing to me. The level of difference can only be described as black and white. The blatant lies are on both sides of the "aisle". Meanwhile our young men and women are dying in foreign lands where we should not be. Mothers and fathers will not be coming home to their children.
It brought to mind the world I experienced at the beginning of my formative years. I remember vividly the voice of FDR but not understanding the words, only the look on my parents faces.
I remember also the look on the faces of my mother and our neighbors when a large strange car slowly made its way down the street. Each mother or wife praying it did not stop at their doorway. I remember seeing the gold star emblems hanging in windows. The emotions were obvious but not quite understood. One only knew that they were intense.
I remember too, the night that it seemed all 35,000 citizens of my city gathered on the main thoroughfare singing, cheering, setting off firecrackers, hugging each other and laughing just for the joy of laughing, as word of the war's end was ringing throughout the Country.
All of this came rushing back to me as I watched a father on Tucker Carlson show last night, describing how he had, just hours previously, been told his son was one of the 13 servicemen killed in Afghanistan.
The emotions of yesterday which I share with you today are vivid in my memory. So vivid that I am feeling an extreme sense of helplessness.
I retired to the comfort and warmth of my own bed last night still feeling the emotions of the day. And this morning I awakened with the reality that it was not a bad dream.
I had three brothers and one uncle in the Military. One brother and my uncle were in the thick of it. Hence the anguish of my Mother that I recall.
This must stop. We must, in the most expedient and efficient way, return our Country to the Constitutional Republic that many and most of us enjoyed, and do it immediately. I pray that those among us that have the capability, the strength and the courage do so, act forthwith. I don't have the answer. To those of you that do, please start. Gather those of us who will follow, and encourage each to use their own abilities to move our wonderful, beautiful Nation and the people within, to a day of reckoning and celebration that many enjoyed on that fateful day at the end of WWII.
We have always considered Thurman NY to be "... almost Heaven ... ".
Let us return to that time!!!!! A time when the United States of America were truly 'united'!
May God bless us all, and show us the way.
Jean

Sometimes I may speak brilliantly and sometimes stupidly. Either way, give it a shot and read the "OLD BROAD....." words. I like to hear other opinions, good or bad. Communication is a necessary exchange for the good of all. Just click on the envelope in the menu or Email directly.
Thanks a bunch. And for those that have kept in touch about little Elmer, he is having a Cardiac Echo test today and should give us some good answers.

THIS IS NO PLACE FOR A CURMUDGEON                         Jean Coulard     July 18, 2021


I am referring to Thurman. There are those that have laughed at us, made fun of us, and commented that we are ".....really out there.....", referring of course to our geographic location.
Well, you can laugh all you want, and make fun all you want, but as a transplanted Long Islander (28 years), I can truly say it was a great move. The air is good, the climate is good, the mountains are beautiful, and I don't mind the snow. Our guys and gals of the highway departments do a good job of keeping the roads clear and safe for us.
As I have said so many times in the past, others can keep their heat, their alligators, snakes, bugs and sinkholes; and add in the tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and wildfires. I will stay right here in good 'ole Thurman.
We have a great contractor that takes care of all the little chores we can no longer do, a landscaper that treats our property with loving care, and many friends that are willing to step up and help the senior citizens.
Our chances for a new Town Board and Supervisor are looking good. Our Town Clerk is the best, and our Tax Assessors are hometown folks that treat us fair and square.
Many of our "part-time" residents are spending more time here, and seem to fit in just fine.
When I consider and see the changes in New York City and Long Island, my heart breaks. It is a sad, sad day for our Country to allow such a brash and unacceptable transformation. But I do have hope that perhaps it can be stopped, or at least stymied before things get out of hand.
In the meantime we have our Thurman and nearby towns and villages that serve us all well.
So be happy, enjoy your surroundings and your neighbors. And let's show good support to the new leaders that we are hoping for in November.
God Bless
Jean

INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
TAKES ON A NEW MEANING IN THURMAN
Michael Goot 5/24/21 THE POST STAR

Gail Seaman has confirmed that she is no longer working for the Town of Thurman.
According to the article by Mr. Goot, our local Liberal Media writer, Mrs. Seaman said ..... “In all honesty, I just want the press and everybody to leave me alone. I’m tired of being targeted by the malcontents in Thurman and I’m tired of them trying to ruin my life. I’m tired of the harassment that I have received…..”.
Mrs. Seaman, it appears to me that most of Thurman will gladly leave you alone. They may even try to pretend that you are no longer in Town at all.
In my opinion, you have been a disruptive force in town politics since first coming on the scene, which was around the same time as Evelyn Wood. You were a strong voice in supporting Ms. Wood (then-Supervisor) during her political goal of getting rid of the free volunteer ambulance squad. That was a slap in the face to the previously deceased Al Martin, and all the volunteers who worked tediously to establish and maintain the squad; to say nothing of the hardship, financially and health-wise to the elderly citizens. Words cannot fully express the relief that your leaving will do for this Town. I will not repeat words expressed around Town that may reflect your demeanor and attitude here and the negative affects they have had on the residents directly.
However, I am sure that many in Thurman will remember the behavior of you, Mrs. Seamen in the parking lot of the County Election Board or your robust violent words toward those that did not agree with you on the Thurman residents site on FACEBOOK.
Mrs. Seaman has claimed to be on the County Ethics Committee. But the committee did not have a record of that. And her behavior as she trampled through our Town Politics is undoubtedly not of ethical quality.
In Mr. Goot’s article, Mrs. Seaman refers to harassment by Thurman residents. Perhaps she has forgotten her own actions at Town Meetings, where she spoke out incessantly with no regard for the "Privilege of the Floor". And while on the Board, she dared to answer everyone’s question, whether directed towards her or not. I also remember the constant and vile comments to our then Town Clerk, Cynthia Hyde, and the mean, nasty behavior toward Mrs. Hyde when she was Supervisor.
It is my understanding that Mrs. Seaman was an O.R. nurse in a local Hospital. I do not doubt she was an employee there; however, the position that she claimed to have been hers did not have her name listed on the records. I question the reason for leaving without the carry-over of medical benefits into her retirement. I feel this may have been why she fought so hard for such benefits from the Town of Thurman; and that appears to have influenced her “walk-out” on the Supervisor, who seemed to take many liberties in to employ Mrs. Seaman.
To sum up my thoughts: Perhaps the resident voters of Thurman will finally get their Town back to begin 2022 when we have a new Supervisor, with Mrs. Seaman no longer on the scene, and new Board members. Let us start a new era of honesty, integrity, and transparency.
