This article pretty much describes how I'm feeling about the recent events concerning Trump and the rapid deplatforming going on. I'm not going to miss Trump.  But I am going to miss the days when people were able to talk to each other civilly even when they disagreed.
I found this article quite thought provoking. https://pjmedia.com/columns/dennis-prager/2021/01/05/i-now-better-understand-the-good-german-n1305198 This past week we didn't just see the banning of Trump for "inciting violence" (despite said inciting is never included for people to judge for themselves).  Countless other people were banned and even groups like #walkaway on Facebook were banned. Regardless of your politics, this is nothing to celebrate.  I remember a time w...
When you vote in person, the trust-level of the result is high.   I fill out my ballot, I walk to a machine with a poll worker and I insert it in and my vote is cast. But with mail-in votes, especially ones where the ballot applications are mailed out, you have a bunch of vulnerable points in the process: You have the possibility of harvesting the applications.  Picture an operative going to a college dorm or a high density housing complex and going door to door to gather th...

The government form said I had to pick a clinic and a doctor, so I wasted my time researching clinics and doctors and picked them. When I got the card I found out the government picked a different clinic and doctor then I did. Here are some questions for Bernie. Do I have to smoke pot or can I smoke tobacco and can I afford to anymore? Can I drink a soda today and what size, diet or sugared? How many miles can I drive today? How about some fast food? Can I eat a steak? After eatin...

Predict who will have the majority in the house and who will have the majority in the senate in Washington D.C. after the November election 2018. Who ever has the lowest reply number with both correct answers after the results are in wins. The grand prize is: You will be hailed the "great correct predictor". To guarantee a win just get the first reply and edit it after the results are in. Now remember no cheating.

FNC's Shep Smith: "We Are "Failing Our Children" Because We  Can't Figure Out Why They Are Killing Each Other"   Here is a hint. I am 54 this is how it was when I was in school. They set the trash can on fire two classes a day. Spit wads the size of baseballs made out of news paper. Punched in the back getting on the bus for no reason. Gum in the hair. Eggs on the chalk board when the teacher turned her back. Kids tee shirt said "flunk now beat the rush". ...

See iffn ya'll can remember this...Moderate Man   The day was dawning bright and clear at Yosemite National park; the sun rose serenely over the treetops, the advancing day chasing away the shadows of night, still pooled in the misted valleys and in the deep woods. Suddenly, a flock of birds scattered at the sharp sound of the word "NNNNOOOOO!"   The sound cut through the stillness of the early morning like a laser through pudding, carrying for miles through the misty air; ...

Why do people immigrate to the United States? Why do people move out of California?

The problem with anything is trying to over control it. Progress waits for no one. No one has to force progress it will happen even if you try to prevent it. The climate will take care of it self, the human race will invent new technology and carbon pollution will decrease. The problem today is people are panicking and panic never works. Just get out of the way and progress will take care of any problem real or imagined. Progress waits for no one.

I wasn't going to bother voting for Gov. on the 7th as I am filled with disgust by Chris Christie's Lieutenant Guadagno, but Democrat Murphy and his pledge to turn our already screwed and overtaxed state into a sanctuary for illegal Mexicans is something that I cannot sit idly by and not cast a vote against.So thats it. A lesser of two evils argument sends me top the poll on the 7th to vote for an official that fills me with revulsion. Only less revulsion than the alternative.

 Hard to believe this was only 5 short years ago. If the Russians are even slightly as dangerous as Democrats now hysterically claim, what does that say about Obama and his judgement?

Some may say I need a psychiatrist, but I've always enjoyed politics and the topics involved. With that being said, wading into the sewage of political discourse these days is an exercise in madness. Gone are the days when such discourse could lead to anything remotely resembling a civilized exchange of ideas. We've ushered in a new era where most people who have such interest are more out to prove that they are right, and any person with any disagreement, or objection to any policy and ...
