I've watched a bunch of clips like them. These two best express my opinions at this point.

Aftermath of Philadelphia Protest

There's Still Plenty Good People.







The difference between last night and this morning of how people act is literally the differences between night and day. Two things I've observed in nearly every city, over half the looters are white people. The other point of observation is throughout the day almost every one of the protests are peaceful. It's when night falls the aholes come out. Unfortunately because of them people tend to lump the two together.

People accuse the media of only focusing on the worse. I'm grateful FOX29 (my favorite TV channel) has decided the airing of these pieces have become it's greater priority. KUDOS to FOX29... good job!

When The Whitehouse Was Once Filled With Positivity

The First Time Anyone Ever Heard This Rough Draft








January 5, 2017
Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency
\


Today's White House has become just a building instead of a beacon to the world for such things as the laughter, empathy, hope, inspiration and the family values it once held. Looking at where we are today (as a country) I wonder if ever there will return such a time again short of a miracle..

Minneapolis Has A Problem

By now everyone should be familiar with the black man whom died in police hands. The problem here is there's so many bad actors it's hard for me to know where to begin. First you have the four cops who obviously went over the line setting this all in motion. Then you have the protests which got out of hand.

There's one video which seems to show a cop in disguise smashing a window in St. Paul whereupon a protestor with a baseball bat confronts him chasing him off. Two trains of thought emerged from this. Was it a cop in disguise trying to set up the protestors OR was it the protestor trying to set up the cops (false flag).

It doesn't help either when cops cuffed a black reporter and took his crew downtown yet interfered with none of the others mostly white. What's with that?

And of course Trump had to get into the act tweeting something which implied he'd be pleased to order the military in to execute looters. Seems kinda drastic to me. Then followed up with his continuing war with Twitter when they flagged it. Course he had to bash the mayor's handling of the situation on Twitter along the way. Seems when he's not watching TV he's hanging on the phone. What... he didn't have the mayor's phone number to lodge his complaint with him directly? Instead apparently favoring to publicly shame the mayor on Twitter.

Some of this could have been avoided if prosecutors would have charged the cops the first day. Instead it's now been three days. ON THE OTHER HAND. Sources close to the prosecutor's office said they want to be absolutely sure they could build an air tight case. The reasons given was because they lost several other prosecutions against cops. Thus implying the justices in that area tend to rule in favor of the police.

UPDATE:
As I'm composing this it's just been announced the main culprit has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter. (In Minneapolis a maximum of 25 years for 3rd degree murder. 10-15 years for manslaughter)

What concerns me is how all the good cops who work hard everyday will be sucked into this mess. They don't deserve the disrespect likely coming to them after this. Most cops put themselves on the line to try and make this country a safer place.

Not all white people are raciest. Not all people of color are criminals. When you have this kind of situation it tends to revert people back to their primitive tribal nature of forming one group against another.

Like I said there's far too many bad actors involved in this situation. Let's see each individual for what they are. Those who perpetuate discord. Others who repudiate it no matter what uniform they wear, what ancestry they may be or their station in life. The challenge here is to separate the good from the evil who will cause further harm. We each should ask ourselves whether we are contributing to further discord or setting ourselves apart from it. It's not up to the politicians, what the media tells us. Not even what social media expounds. Each of us are responsible for our own words and actions.

Trump Tweets "Revoke 230"



A Case Of Be Careful What You Wish For
Without getting all wordy Trump wants 'Twitter' to be held liable for what people post. The problem with that is 'Twitter' could be held liable for his remarks as well. Meaning 'Twitter' would be forced to remove a huge number of Trump posts to prevent legal action against them.

This could force 'Twitter' to enact a three strike rule. One which any person who posted legally defined defamation remarks could have their account permanently suspended in order to protect themselves.

What if it were 2016 today now knowing how things transpired over the last 3 1/2 years?
Would things turn out any differently?

As for today's Trump versus Biden. I've never seen two worse choices. Heaven help us. We're going to need it.

If Twitter Had Guts They'd Delete Captain Tweety's Account

This is captain tweety's third tweet this month alone accusing Joe Scarborough of murder.



Trumps tweets sure look like defamation to me. Joe may not be able to sue the president but I'd sure look into Twitter's legal responsibility to continually allow one of their users to make false accusations. Trump has been making them at various times since 2007.

Here's a link about all the news stories from 2001 related to Scarborough aide Klausutis’ death from the archives at "Northwest Florida Daily News".

This was said on May 4, 2020...


So what does he do?
Triple down today (05/24/2020).

There will come a day when Captain Tweety is no longer protected by the office of presidency. It's then all these defamatory tweets of his could prove very costly. Even if he or twitter were to remove them the screen shots will live on in infinity. Who knows how many could turn up as evidence for any possible future court litigations after he leaves office (assuming he'll go quietly).

Some have accused me of "Trump Derangement Syndrome". Oh there really is such a thing as TDS, but not what some purport it to be.

This is what actual TDS Looks Like

Press Briefings Are Rigged

I've watched nearly every White House press briefing. In each one the reporter from OAN gets to feed the press secretary the last question.

First of all this phony OAN reporter is not assigned a seat at the briefing by the recognized head of the White House press corp. Instead she is a so-called invited guest of the White House. That's why she is always gets to stand in back near the entranceway.

It should be obvious to everyone her questions are pre-coordinated with the press secretary. After which the press secretary then goes on a tear from her pre-prepared scripted written remarks always demeaning to the regular press. Then abruptly ends the briefing walking out w/o allowing any further questions.


Notice how she didn't cowardly allow one single follow up question from a legitimate news organization questioning these phony accusations. Notice too how she cut off the reporter before she could dump her BS on them even after asking them for a response. The then there are those graphics which magically appeared out of nowhere. Imagine that!

Just for once I'd like to see this gutless wonder appear with Rachel Maddow, Chris Cuomo, Anderson Cooper, CBS, ABC, NBC or anyone other then FOX news and try that same crap with them.

She isn't a press secretary. She's a propagandist who can only debate when she stacks the deck within her own confines at these rigged briefings of hers.

Common Core Math

In my post just prior to this I made a humorous one concerning the old way of doing math compared to the "new" way of doing math. This post is for those who are serious about learning so-called "new math". If so, this is for you.


As for me, I'm old school. I see no reason to go out my front door then go around the block to get to my garage out back. It's just who I am.

Course most of the older kids (and many adults) these days prefer asking Apple's all knowing "Siri" then even bothering to use a calculator. "Notebook computers" have replaced pencils. GPS has replaced street and highway paper maps. Many of our grandparents parents knew most of this basic stuff by 9th grade including how to write longhand.

This is all fine and dandy but heaven help us if a major power grid should fail us for more then a week. It would make this Coronavirus look like a minor inconvenience....


Not to be a doomsayer, but we never should become so dependent on robots and electronic devices that we become unable to function without them. This is why it's imperative that we learn the basics in the most efficient way possible without the need for electronics to solve each and every problem. This is not the direction our educational institutions are headed with these overly complicated methods of teaching simple basic math. Those which one should be able to do in their heads w/o need for pencil nor paper.

I'll give you one practical example.
I worked in a food plant where I had to put together a bunch of ingredients for separate batches every 20 minutes. It took about 15 or more minutes to put one together. While this kid was still figuring out what we needed to put together I already started on it. If I waited for his calculations we would have had to shut down the line. This would have required over a half hour of downtime to restart the line. Totally unacceptable. I did it in my head the old fashion way w/o pencil, paper not having the benefit of a computer nor calculator provided by the company because it wasn't really all that complicated. Each time I had to log what ingredients I added. If I was wrong or not in time it would have been on me. Incidentally his final calculations nearly always came in too late to be of use.

How We Were Home Schooled In The 50's

And we didn't need a laptop!

This is how some still pay their rent today

If you will note, most of these senior government leaders you see today, who put these budgets together, came from this age group. They're the ones now in charge of setting up federal, state and local spending and revenue programs. Some of them even went on to college to further increase their knowledge...


I can hear some of you right now saying this is completely wrong. No wonder things got screwed up. That's not the way kids should have been educated. It was nothing like today's highly knowledgeable students are being taught....

Area Model Multiplication vs Old School Method






Oh my, I see some of you seem confused.

Sometimes it's easier when you put things into musical form. Hopefully after seeing the following video it will all start to make sense...





Optimistically speaking I expect going forward no taxpayer should ever be confused again how these various government budgets end up being formed.



Glad I could be of service.

If We Don't Have Enough To Concern Ourselves With...



We were born with the unique ability to decide whether or not to inflict greater harm then any other living creature on this planet. No other creature (other then us humans) has this ability to choose. Shame to say all too often we're abusing this gift we were blessed with.

WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC

Summer Is Cancelled

Most all the local governments in the Lehigh Valley have cancelled their summer events including shutting down playgrounds, some parks and all the pools. Although they stated it was because of Covid 19 I suspect money might have played a larger role.

I'm all for being careful but at some point the lid is going to blow off this thing. People been mostly patient up to now but there comes a point where patience begins to run thin. I think we'll soon begin to see just how much people are willing to tolerate.

There are better solutions.
Most of those solutions come from the private sector not politicians. Increasingly the government in standing in the way of implementing them. If government continues along this path it will not fare well for it or any of us.

Look, I know how stupid some people can be. Let the Coronavirus itself educate those foolish enough to disregard it's dangers. Government cannot change peoples' behaviors. Nor should government hamstring those of us who can act responsibly. Somehow government has taken it upon itself to try and save stupid people from themselves. I feel it has no such obligation. Let nature take it's course and allow the rest of us with common sense to get on with our lives in a prudent manner.

The bottom line is this..
Government has allowed huge corporate owned stores to remain open while forcing mom and pop operations to shutdown. These huge stores have allowed hundreds (if not 1,000's) of potential disease carriers to pass through their doors daily. This while mom and pop operations were lucky if they'd have only a teeny tiny fraction come through their doors if they were allowed to remain open. Something doesn't pass the smell test here.

Now as tourists cities start to ramp up others are shutting down what little they do offer. So if you have the loot you can scoot. If you're unable to afford... stay bored.

Click on the > to watch
Click on the > to watch

Time after time mainstream media has been accused of not presenting Trump supporters' side of the story. It never goes well for them when they do. If Trumpsters want to act like a bunch of jackasses I wouldn't give them the time of the day. Why should legitimate news reporters subject themselves to this kind of hateful abuse? Then again why not show them for the jackasses they are.

Look I'm all for opening the country up cautiously, but obviously this bunch has no intention of being reasonable Maybe the best thing here is let these people free to go hog wild infecting themselves. Let the Coronavirus deal with them. It's these kind of knuckleheads who worry the rest of us who are self disciplined enough act in a responsible manner. They've shown this is something they're not capable of. Makes me wonder what kind of kids they're raising.

Trump Has Crossed The Red Line With Me


The dumbass doesn't seem to realize he won the presidency three years ago despite his false claims. I don't give a crap about his imagined paybacks. What he should be entirely focused on is how we are going to stop people from getting killed by this disease. How businesses are going to survive. Our food supply chain. A social society which may never emerge the same as it was over the remaining years I have left on the earth. No not him. He'd rather focus on himself and him alone.

This time he's gone too far. I'm done with him and anyone else who can't find the decency within themselves to denounce this weak minded self serving man devoid of any feelings or empathy towards anyone other then himself.

By no means am I making Obama out to be a saint,
but I sure know the devil's disciples when I see them.....

Knock It Off With Dr. Anthony Fauci Criticisms

Some people are lobbing all kinds of hatred towards Fauci because of his advice. Look, the guy's not a politician nor economist. People turned to him for guidance solely as a doctor. Makes me wonder how many ever took a doctor's advice when they said stay home from work, you're too sick. Instead went on a tear how they couldn't afford to stay home. Then went to work anyway.

It's not Fauci who is to blame. If people don't want to take a doctor's advice it's on them for what the consequences are in ignoring his recommendations. Fauci isn't forcing shutdowns. They come from politicians who make decisions on the information he provides as to what risks are involved. Some may follow doctors orders. Others may not.

I think most people should be allowed to make their own decisions based on sound advice from Dr. Fauci. He's the last guy who should receive blame for whatever happens after that advice is given.

Everyone is inclined to place blame when misfortune happens. If there's any culpability to be had it lies with those in power who over react threatening people and business owners who are backed against a corner. Some people will make bad decisions. Some won't. It's not for our leaders to dictate a individual's choices. Not in a democracy. At best they should try and educate people on the risks and let people decide for themselves. If someone makes the wrong choice the Corona virus will do the rest. It's then people will react individually on their own accordingly without the need for government threats.

Is It Time To Open Up?
Probably not. But I think people need to discover this for themselves. Anyone who raised kids knows until they harm themselves they'll keep doing whatever they're doing even if it's behind their parents back. What we're doing is creating a future underground economy. One where the shades are pulled down and cash backroom deals are starting to gain a foothold. People are getting desperate. Have we learned nothing from prohibition?

Who the hell is the government to tell us what an "essential" business is. All single owner businesses are "essential" to them. Face it these small single owned businesses are the ones suffering. Not these super size corporate entities. Only these are forced to follow Fauci's advice while airlines, meat plants and other numerous giants have not only been allowed to continue operations but encouraged to do so. Small mom and pop operations can (at worse) contaminate only a fraction of what these giants are allowed to continue doing on a daily basis.

The bottom line is Fauci is the last guy in the world who should be held accountable for what happens. His only guilt has been trying to provide guidance. Whether we follow his recommendation or not isn't on him. Some will party on. Some won't. He will not determine who lives or who dies. That's left between the coronavirus, ourselves and fate to decide.

Mitch McConnell Says Obama Should Keep His Mouth Shut


Maybe you, your buddy Trump and his gang ought to try it sometime. Since 2016 Trump has criticized the prior Obama administration in everyway possible. Right now Trump is blowing around using the term "Obamagate" falsely accusing Obama of all sorts of things.


For three long years Obama held his tongue. What's Obama suppose to do? Let you continue using him as a punching bag accusing him of crimes then just shut up and take it?

The reason the Bush's never spoke out against Clinton nor Obama was neither of these two ever badmouthed prior administrations. Neither did they take every opportunity to try and go after with a vengeance everyone who ever worked for prior administrations In fact these three prior presidents work together frequently for causes (including with Jimmy Carter). That's what normal civilized people do. No other president has shown such disrespect as this toxic Trump administration. If I were to start listing every person and organization Trump has trashed it would fill the entire page of this blog.

Now is the time, not only for Obama, but every self respecting politician to speak out.

Another Day Another Batch Of BS Tweets From Trump

How many deaths were caused by swine flu in the U.S.?
"ANSWER
It's estimated that the swine flu -- a new type of flu that spread worldwide during 2009-2010, causing the first flu pandemic -- caused more than 12,000 flu-related deaths in the U.S."


This is just one of Trump's latest along with 30 or so re-tweets accusing the Obama administration of trying to undermine and oust the "duly elected" president". Here's a flash Dick Tracy.. you won. Get over it. Careful what you wish for.

Now let's try and refocus away from all this defection and get back to this Covid problem we're all faced with. The American people have far greater concerns with it. So should you considering the White House has now become a hot spot and Nancy Pelosi is third in line should you and the veep become sick.

Covid 19 Throws A Spit Ball And The Human Race Falls Apart

In four short months this virus has nearly crippled our social order. Nearly destroyed the world economy. Our supply chains are in chaos. It most certainly exposed the worst and best amongst us. Covid 19 doesn't differentiate between boundaries, various forms of governments, religious beliefs, the healthy/the weak, the affluent/the poor, ethnicities nor any other differences we humans imagine we have from one another.

It's only goal is to propagate therefore insuring it's continued survival. Making it similar to what we humans have in common with it. The difference is, humans think they can rely on government and each other. During this pandemic we're seeing otherwise. While the virus steam rolls over us people have taken to shouting at one another. The useless noise has become deafening. Some are venturing forth into the arms of wolf waiting outside the door. Others have bunkered down in fear. Meanwhile the indiscriminate virus continues to evade our best efforts to outmaneuver it.

Know thy enemy
I'm not sure how we overcome this threat but there are a few things I am certain of. We can't ignore it, bluff our way out of this mess nor do any good to ourselves by fighting with each other. We know the enemy exists. We're both competing for sustaining our existence on this planet. Currently the virus has the upper hand. It will dictate to us how, where and when it will attack. There's little we can do about it.

How we react will determine our fate.
We have a huge advantage this virus doesn't have. The ability to use all the knowledge, intellect and our thinking capacities to outsmart it. On the downside we also tend to allow our emotions to drive us away from using them. Instead fighting among our differences. This virus has no such thing to divide them. Which species gains the upper hand and deserves perpetuity may very well depend on the differences between the two. Consider this. We humans are late bloomers Life on this Earth existed long before we came along. I'd rather not think this Earth could get along perfectly fine without us. It did once. Quite possibly it could again.


Wow, that was depressing wasn't it?
Proves there's a song for every situation.

Covid 19 Challenges Doctors Understanding How To Treat


I watched a bunch of these kinds of videos. What I'm gathering is data indicates half or more that go on a ventilator die. Some doctors are questioning in some cases it might be the wrong thing to do because of two types of outer lung membranes they are seeing. One is a thickening (less elastic) a fair candidate for intubation. While the other patient may have a thin lung wall lining which using a ventilator on them might result in putting them into greater danger then if they didn't use one

These videos imply the lung wall lining seems to be the key difference between what one patient should receive for treatment as opposed to another. Mind you it's only a theory, but some are considering it.

In both a shortage of oxygen is the critical problem. Oxygen levels can range rather safely between 80%-100%. Some Covid patients' levels are as low as 35%-40% this is when normal protocols call for ventilators. This extreme lack of oxygen can result in the thickening of blood. Another problem doctors have had to deal with during this disease.

So until there's a 100% provable drug for the treatment of this disease this is pretty much where we're at.

BS Is Everywhere I Look

In my previous post I spoke of alternative energy fraud. This began me thinking how 95% of what I come across is utter BS. How the government is going to bailout small businesses.. BS. Reasons why everything needs to be closed up or opened.. 95% BS. The stock market reflects the wealth of the average American worker... BS. Scientific "theories".. 95% BS (that's why they're called "theories). Every school district federal, state and city government claims they're always underwater no matter how much tax money they receive.. BS. Companies are begging for employees.. BS. All liberals want/all conservatives want.. BS. Interest free yadda yadda.. BS. Free delivery.. BS. 50% off or two for one price...BS. Reality shows.. BS. America's most talented.. BS. Free this and that with every purchase.. BS. We're all in this together...BS. On and on and on. The lists are endless.



Here's an instrument I've found that's right 95% of the time.

Green Energy Alternatives Are A Fraud

Since April 21, 2020 at the present time over 6.3 million have watched this video. It looks like I, along with millions of others, have been played that somehow alternative energies were superior to fossil fuels. This has got to be the most disappointing film I've ever watched. It changes everything I believed were better energy alternatives for our environment. It's changed my entire opinion on this subject. The facts simply do not support what we've been led to believe.

The only conclusion I'm left with is, any energy we consume comes at a cost. There doesn't seem to be any other way around it. How disappointing.

Will This Put An End To The Allegations Against Joe Biden?

The following links are very informative. This first link provides documents from Biden clearly showing he wasn't at the event when his other accuser Eva Murry claimed he made his advances. There's two more documents that backs this up. The second link clears up another accusation that he was seen in a photo with Tara Reade (his other accuser). The third link was something Tara wrote less then a year and a half ago. While I was trying to post a link the site shut itself down. However I posted a screen grab I found elsewhere what was on it before they nixed it.

Link #1- Biden Campaign Provides Documents to Dispute Eva Murry Sexual Harassment Allegation

Link #2- Is This a Photograph of Biden with Tara Reade?
(It is actually a photograph of Biden posing with Zoƫ Baird, who had then just been nominated for the position of U.S. Attorney General by President Bill Clinton.)

Oregon Has Been Voting By Mail For Decades

huffpost.com
Oregon Has Been Voting By Mail For Decades
"...been conducting all of its statewide elections entirely by mail since 1998... The system is simple: Ballots are mailed to all registered voters’ addresses three weeks before each election, along with a pamphlet of information on candidates and issues. Voters mark them, sign them and drop them in a mailbox. Election officials verify every signature... its vote-by-mail elections cost 20% to 30% less than in-person voting .."

It certainly would make it a lot easier for those working long hours and don't have the time to stand in line. I would think this would increase the number of voters quite a bit.
