E.S.G.   

E.S.G. is the acronym for Environmental, Social and Governance.  This policy gives unelected federal bureaucrats in Washington the right to control business and industry.     

The government recommends that banks and financial institutions not do business with people or companies that do not meet their expectations because  of an environmental and social score.

Using E.S.G scores, the government can and do control and regulate our freedoms that they cannot get approval for though Congress.  Taking away second amendment rights is one example.

I personally know of one example involving a firearms manufacturer.  The company was planning on building a new manufacturing facility.  The company was solid and the numbers looked good.  

Most major banks were not interested in making the loan.  The problem was that a company manufacturing firearms did not score well with E.S.G. criteria.  

I do not know how the government enforces or promotes E.S.G, but it is a political tool that is unconstitutional in my opinion.  The federal government does not have the right to use finance institutions to control businesses for political purposes.

The Environmental, Social and Governance overreach of the federal government must stop.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Act of War    

100,000 people in this country are killed by fentanyl every year, because of intentional agenda by China.  Why is it not an act of war? 

China ships the fentanyl raw materials to Mexico, and the cartels cut other narcotics with it.  Sometimes the cartels even make counterfeit pills of pure fentanyl.

The cartels then smuggle the fentanyl and other drugs into the US, with the help of the Left and the Biden administration’s open border policy.  If the fentanyl problem is intentional and an act of war, Biden’s open boarder policy is treason. 

We must take military action against the Cartels and the fentanyl crisis.  China is using it as a cold war strategy and they are winning. 

Many common medications, like aspirin and ibuprofen, are made in China.  What is stopping China from spiking them with fentanyl? 

The open border also helps fund the cartels by promoting human trafficking, which is a crime against humanity.  Rape is commonplace.  There is more slavery now, due to the open border, than at any time since the Civil War. 

The open border policy has become a national security threat.  It is destroying our economy.  It is a crime against humanity for both US citizens and illegal immigrants.  It must stop.

The border must be secure, the cartels must be neutralized. And we must stop China from killing our people with fentanyl.  This is war. 

The United States has not won a decisive military victory in decades.  It is about time. 

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Obama’s 3rd,4th & 5th Term    

Why is Biden President?  He always was a corrupt career politician with no achievements.  He also clearly had dementia by the time he was elected President.  People that voted for Biden were uninformed, didn’t want the truth, or most likely just hated Trump.  

But why did the political elite push Biden? Obama said publicly; “Biden has ability to F**k things up”.  Who is controlling Biden?  He certainly is not capable of rational thinking. 

Is this actually Obama’s third term?  Why does Obama still have offices in DC?  No previous President has ever done this.  Valerie Jared and Eric Holder still appear to be working with Obama.  Obama has also been quoted as saying he would like a third term if he could do it though a “front man” while he was in his basement in his sweats. 

IS Biden just the front man?  The obvious theory is that Obama is controlling Biden.  Valerie Jared is controlling Obama, and George Soros is controlling Valerie Jared. 

Obama’s fourth and fifth term as President could be through Michelle Obama running for president.  The Democratic Party cannot run on their policies or history.  Crime, inflation, gas prices, border security, and foreign policy are all a disaster. 

The list of qualified Democrat candidates to replace Biden is short or even nonexistent.  Democrats may try to win by dividing the country into special interests again.  Michelle Obama has a lot going for her.  She has name recognition.  Barack is still very popular.  Most importantly, she is a black female.

Michelle as President.  SCARY!

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

The Pelican Brief   

The Pelican Brief is a 1992 John Grisham novel and a 1993 film.  Both are very good and worth your time.

The plot involves land development, an endangered species, and the assassination of a Supreme Court justice.  It shows what happens when special interests use the Supreme Court as a legislative branch of government. 

The only job of the Supreme Court is to enforce the Constitution, its Amendments, and any legal laws passed by Congress.  They must ensure states’ rights and the people’s freedom.

We now have a similar crisis facing this country.  The radical left want to use the Supreme Court as a legislative branch of government. 

The left and Democrats can’t sell their policies and propaganda because the American people know how they are hurting the country.  They want to try an end run that is illegal because they can’t get their way legally. 

If they can assassinate a conservative Supreme Court Justice, Biden is still president and will certainly nominate another liberal idiot.  If they can take over the Supreme Court, they can take over the country. 

There has already been an assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh.  State and federal laws make it a felony to stalk, threaten, harass, picket, or protest a judge.  One radical Left organization is paying a bounty for anyone who locates and reports a CONSERVATIVE Supreme Justice out in public.   This is a crime.

No one is enforcing these laws.  The FBI, Department of Justice, and the White house openly support these illegal protests.

The three liberal idiot justices on the Supreme Court are perfectly safe.  No one would hurt them.

Are these laws going to be enforced before it is too late and Biden appoints a replacement for an assassinated Supreme Court Justice?

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Ideologue   

Here are some definitions of “ideologue”:

  • An adherent of an ideology, especially one who is uncompromising and dogmatic
  • An often blindly partisan advocate or adherent to a particular ideology
  • An impractical idealist
  • A theorist
  • A zealous advocate or adherent of an ideology
  • Someone who very strongly supports and is guided by the ideology of a particular group
  • A person who believes strongly in particular principles and tries to follow them carefully

Here are some of the synonyms listed:

  • Fanatic
  • Crusader
  • Militant
  • Partisan
  • Zealot

        One common element that is omitted from all definitions of an ideologue is any reference to facts or science.  We have many examples in our country today.

        Climate advocates support the green new deal in spite of the facts showing humans have little or no effect on the climate.  The war on fossil fuels is adding to inflation and there is no possible renewable energy solution in the foreseeable future.  Ideologues say the science is settled and won’t even discuss the facts.

        Open border advocates continue their ideology in spite of the lives lost of both citizens and illegals.  These illegals cannot hold jobs legally and could destroy our economy. 

        Ideologues advocating additional gun legislation are promoting mass shootings.  Enforcing current gun legislation is enough.  We need to address the real problems.  Law enforcement, prosecutors, the courts, and social workers are not doing their jobs. 

        We need to stop worrying about hurting these ideologue’s feelings.  We must face facts and put ideologues in their place.  Forget about political implications.  These ideologues are a small minority.  They should NOT be running and ruining the country.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

If you can keep it   

Benjamin Franklin was asked. “What do we have, a republic or a monarchy?”  Franklin responded. “A republic, if you can keep it.”    

Most of our Founding Fathers considered the new democratic republic an experiment.  They devised the greatest government in the history of the world.   We celebrate it every July 4th

The key to our success is the Constitution.  It clearly defines the powers given to the federal government and which powers are given to the states and the people.  The 10th Amendment clarifies the limited powers of the federal government.  We have violated these limits and they need to be corrected. 

The Constitution also clearly defines the balance of power between Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court.  The Congress makes the laws and sets the budget.  The President enforces the laws.  The Supreme Court insures that the Constitution is followed.

Our federal government has taken liberties with the limits spelled out in the Constitution.  It has grown to a behemoth size and infringed on the rights of the states and the people.

The Congress wastes time on political agendas and hoaxes.  The President does not enforce the laws. The Supreme Court legislates from the bench. 

We must always put the Constitution first if we are going to keep the republic.  We cannot put political and individual agendas above the Constitution. 

Supreme Court justices are not elected and are appointed for life.  If five of them are allowed to legislate from the bench in direct contradiction of the Constitution, the republic is lost. 

The original Roe v. Wade decision was a perfect example of a terrible decision that clearly was a states’ rights issue.  It took fifty years to correct it.  I don’t care if you are pro life or pro choice; it is a state by state issue.

If the federal government does not start following the Constitution, we will not be able to keep our republic.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Recent Hoaxes   

The Russia hoax was a crime.  It wasted millions of dollars and thousands of Congressional hours.  It was totally partisan politics intended to discredit, hamper, and/or impeach President Trump. 

We know it was all a lie and a crime and that hardly anybody has gone to jail.  I doubt they ever will.

 

COVID was the next hoax.  The pandemic was real enough, but how the government handled it had nothing to do with health or science. 

We were told the vaccines were 100% safe and effective.  We now know that was a lie. 

Masks were another thing we could not trust.  Masks help in stopping germs like the flu or the common cold but most are not effective against COVID.

We do know the lockdowns were not effective.  We also know shutting down schools did irrevocable damage to an entire generation of children.

 

Black Lives Matter is a hoax and a scam.  BLM doesn’t give a dam about black lives.  It’s all about the WOKE movement, a power grab by the Left, and making money.  I find it had to believe how many people and corporations were conned into giving them money. 

 

The January 6th hearings are a travesty of injustice. This was a peaceful and justified demonstration that got out of control. Speaker Pelosi refused to take common sense steps to protect the Capital.  FBI plants promoted storming the Capital.

The only person who was killed in the Capital on January 6th was an unarmed female veteran who was threatening no one.  The black Capital policeman who murdered her has been completely exonerated.

The hearings are total political theater.  They are so bad that I have seen better in local community theaters. 

I am disgusted that Republicans have done nothing to free people from January 6th who have been held in solitary confinement for more than a year in total violation of their Constitutional rights.

The Democrats are making a desperate attempt to invent a crime that President Trump committed.  At the least they want to bar him from running for President in 2024.  They have nothing of substance to run on and know no amount of election fraud could defeat Trump if he runs in 2024.

 

Climate change and the green new deal is a hoax that been perpetuated for decades.  Make no mistake; the green new deal has nothing to do with climate change.  It is all about a global economy, wealth redistribution, and political power.

It is naive to think human actions can control the climate.  We can’t even accurately predict the weather.

We are and will be dependent on fossil fuels for decades.    Luckily, we have a supply that will last hundreds of years.

There is no way we are ready to change over to renewable energy at this time.  Wind and solar power amount to only about 12% of our energy needs and are unreliable. 

We don’t have the raw materials or capability to produce the batteries needed to operate vehicles or store energy produced from wind or solar.  One of the biggest problems is disposal of old batteries, solar panels, or wind turbine props.  At this time there is no recycling of these parts, and we certainly do not have the land fill capacity or technology to safely dispose of them.

 

All four of these recent hoaxes have nothing to do with science or the facts.  They are all about maintaining political power for the Left and the establishment from both political parties.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Better Life  

Open border advocates say all that illegal immigrants want is a better life.  How can they get a better life?  They have to have a job for a better life, and employing an illegal immigrant is breaking the law.

I remember a federal law being passed prohibiting the employment of illegals in the early 1970s.  I owned the Ford Mercury dealership, Lee Motors, at the time and took the law very seriously.  I remember the potential fine as $10,000.  I told my office manager to verify and document that all our employees were legal. 

The current Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed in 1986.  Fines for unknowingly hiring an illegal worker range from $100 to $1,000.  Fines for knowingly hiring an illegal worker double to $200 to $2,000.

  • First time offenders can be fined $250 to $2,000 per illegal worker.
  • Second time offenders can be fined $2,000 to $5,000 per illegal worker.
  • A employer with three or more offences of hiring illegal workers can be fined $3,000 to $10,000 per

If the law were being enforced, it would not make sense for most employers to hire illegal workers.   If illegals can’t work, how do they live?   If illegals cannot support themselves, US citizens must support them with their taxes.  With millions of illegals crossing the southern border, how can this continue?

President Biden has failed to keep his Oath of Office and enforce our laws. This should be grounds for impeachment. 

The White House, FBI, and Department of Justice no longer enforce our laws equally.  They have been transformed into partisan political organizations promoting the Left and jailing conservatives.  How long will we put up with this?

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Incompetent & Crooks

         I don’t know how many of these people you are familiar with, but you should know them all. 

  • Joe Biden, President
  • Kamala Harris, Vice President
  • Merrick B. Garland, Attorney General
  • Alejandro Mayorkas, Homeland Security Secretary
  • Antony Blinken, Secretary of State
  • Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Defense
  • Janet Yellen, Secretary of the Treasury
  • Pete Buttigieg, Secretary of Transportation
  • Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House
  • Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Leader
  • Dianne Feinstein, US Senator
  • Mitt Romney, US Senator
  • Liz Cheney, US Congresswoman
  • Alex Ocasio-Cortez, US Congresswoman
  • Adam Kinzinger, US Congressman
  • Jerry Nadler, US Congressman
  • Ilhan Omar, US Congresswoman
  • Adam Shiff, US Congressman
  • Maxine Waters, US Congresswoman
  • John Kerry, Presidential envoy for climate

        These are some of the people who are incompetent and/or crooks serving in the top levels of our federal government.  I hope I would be smart enough not to hire any of these people for even the most menial job. 

        I understand that sometimes we feel we have to vote for the least of the evils, but this is not an acceptable option.  We have to do a better job finding qualified candidates.  We must get more involved in primary elections.

Mass Shootings

         We have seen an increase of mass shootings in the last couple decades.  What is the cause and how do we change it? 

        This is a complex problem with no easy solution.  Any time a political group says there is an easy solution, we know they are lying. 

        Democrats always say they should never let a good crisis go to waste.  But, using the death of nineteen elementary students to advance a political agenda and raise money for their Party is a disgrace.  People like President Biden and Beto O’Rourke both did this showing what despicable human beings they are.

        More gun legislation is a unconstitutional and would do nothing to stop mass shootings.  Criminals don’t care about laws.  That is why they are called outlaws. 

        Additional gun legislation will not stop outlaws.  It will only take away the Constitutional rights of law abiding citizens.

        Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.  How are they working?  Over Memorial Day weekend, 47 were shot and 9 have died.  Any moron can see that more gun legislation will not stop gun violence.

        There are several common denominators behind mass shootings. 

  • Liberal prosecutors and judges don’t enforce current laws. 
  • Current bail laws promote crime
  • Most offenders are young males.
  • Most offenders are from dysfunctional homes.
  • Most offenders display many red flags.
  • Schools are not secure.
  • Gun Free Zones invite mass shooters.

        Things that can and should be considered include:

  • Enforce current laws preventing crime.
  • Convicted felons using guns in committing new crimes should be kept in jail.
  • Eliminate current bail reform that puts criminals back on the street.
  • Secure schools with one entrance/exit and armed
  • Address and treat mentally ill individuals who have shown violent tendencies.
  • Eliminate Gun Free Zones.
  • Train and promote canceled carry for some teachers and staff.
  • Promote traditional homes with a father.
  • Teach and return to Judah Christian values that made this country great.
  • Stop political division that is ruining this country.
  • Vote anyone out of office who promotes useless and unconstitutional gun legislation.

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Dividing America

 When President Obama was elected, I did not expect much from him, but I did expect him to improve race relations.  I was wrong.  He did everything he could to divide the country on race.  

 President Biden promised to unite the country, but he has continued to divide the country on race, sex and anything else he can come up with. 

 According to America First Legal President Stephen Miller;

“Critical Race Theory and the 1619 project are not only works of historical fiction, they are poisonous ideologies designed to separate and divide Americans by ethnicity and race.”  

He is totally correct.

        The Democratic agenda is twofold:

  1. Divide the country into special interest groups.
  2. Promote the delusional anti-Trump hoax.

They have nothing else to run on.

Democrat Party leaders will do anything to stay in power.  They are so corrupt that they no longer care about the American people.  They have become the party of hate, division, hypocrisy, and socialism.

Democrats and the lame-steam media jump to support people like Smollet’s racist hoax.   Smollet should have gotten 15 years instead of 150 days.  Justice is not equal for conservatives and liberals.

The WOKE movement, teacher’s unions, and Cancel Culture dupe white liberals and use them to divide the country. 

Democrats support destructive organizations like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA.  These organizations should be designated as domestic terrorists.  I wonder how liberals feel about being conned into supporting a totally corrupt BLM who cares nothing about black lives.

Will the Democratic Party continue to divide the country?  Will the Party survive?  Will they gain power and implement their Marxist agenda?

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Ministry of Truth

 The Ministry of Truth is one of the four ministries in George Orwell’s book 1984.  Orwell wrote the fictional novel in 1949.  Or was it fiction?  The predictions are a little scary when compared to today’s political world. 

 The Ministry of Truth was about suppressing the truth.  It was intended to spread propaganda and indoctrinate the public.  The objective was to stop any free speech.  Speaking the truth could result in death.

 The Left and the Biden administration recently tried to establish a Disinformation Governance Board in the Department of Homeland Security.  The intent of this department was just like the Ministry of Truth in 1984.  It was to limit or eliminate freedom of speech.  Nothing would have been allowed that was counter to the Left’s political agenda.  It also was responsible for spreading the lies of the ruling elite.

 The Disinformation Governance Board was to be headed by Nina Jankowicz.  Nina is a left-wing dingbat that certainly is a disinformation expert.  She lied about COVID, Russia, Trump, and the Biden laptop.

 This Marxist move was too radical in the current America First movement, and has been put “on pause”.  BUT, don’t relax because the Left will try again and will continue to backdoor other restrictions on free speech. 

 If you have not read Orwell’s 1984 in the last 10 or 20 years, it is time to read it again.  I must warn you that if you think about today’s political situation while reading it, you may lose your appetite and not be able to sleep at night.

Why?

I have been traveling so this post is short.  I just have a few questions for your contemplation.

  • Why do Democrats fear free speech?
  • Why do Democrats want an open boarder?
  • Why don’t Democrats care about blacks killing blacks?
  • Why do Democrats promote crime in the streets?
  • Why do Democrats want inflation?
  • Why do Democrats allow a small group of WOKE idiots control the Party?
  • Why do Democrats want an oligarchy government instead of a democratic republic?

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Roe V. Wade

        I am not going to talk about abortion.  It is a complicated issue with strong emotions on both sides.  It also has become a political tool. 

        I am going to talk about the Constitution, states’ rights, division of power, and the democratic process of this great republic.  The Constitution and the 10th Amendment make it obvious, even to a layman, that that the federal government has no authority to deal with abortion.  This issue is clearly the responsibility of the states or citizens.

        The Constitution also clearly defines the responsibility and authority of the three branches of the federal government.  The Congress makes the laws and sets the budget. 

        The executive branch is responsible for enforcing the laws and not making them.  Someone should tell President Biden this. 

        The Supreme Court is responsible for insuring that the Constitution is not violated.  They do not have any authority to legislate or promote any political agenda.

        Roe V. Wade was a Supreme Court decision in 1973.  It is probably the worst decision in fifty years.  It is a political decision that violates the Constitution and states rights.

        Someone leaked a document that appears to overturn Roe V. Wade.  Whoever did this is part of the delusional WOKE mob and is trying to influence the Supreme Court Justices to change their mind.

        Whoever committed this act needs to be fired, disbarred, never allowed to practice law, and prosecuted for their crimes.  It is a felony to try to intimidate a judge.  We cannot allow a small delusional

mob threaten our Supreme Court Justices. 

        The decision leaked does not ban abortion.  It is all about the Constitution and states rights.  Here is some of the conclusion: 

“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion.”

“Roe and Casey abrogated the authority.  We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”

          This does not ban abortion. It means the people will have the right to vote on how abortion is to be regulated in their state.  Rule by the people and their elected representative is how a democratic republic works.

        Allowing the Supreme Court to violate the Constitution, the federal division of power, and states rights was a huge mistake in 1973.  It is about time this mistake was corrected. 

        When the liberal Left is protesting the decision, they are denying the Constitution, states rights, and citizens the right to vote.   They are giving all the power to a political oligarchy.   This leads to tyranny, not democracy.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Penny Frugal – Dollar Stupid 

When I was 19 years old, I worked for a relative who ran a liquid fertilizer plant.  Before the spring rush started we were installing a 10,000 gallon upright tank at a CO-OP elevator.

The tank came in by rail so there was a train, engineer and conductor involved.  A crane and crane operator were needed.  There were also three of us from the plant and everyone was being paid by the hour.

Everyone was there on time and the rock base was ready for the tank to be installed.  The CO-OP manager wanted to tar the bottom of the tank, which was a good idea.  The problem was he did not want to ruin a good broom to do it. 

Everyone stood around, on-the-clock, while he found an old broom.  Saving that $10 broom cost him over a thousand dollars.  That is penny frugal – dollar stupid. 

 

One of the restaurants in our area was recently sold.  The new owners will not accept any gift certificates from the previous owners.  A $50 gift certificate is redeemed in food and drinks and does not cost the restaurant $50.  Margins on drinks should be very good. 

Redeeming the gift certificate creates good will, additional business, traffic, and tips for the staff.  It is a win–win and a much better investment than any of their other advertising or promotions.  

Refusing to honor the gift certificate is terrible public relations.  They have lost a customer, and the dissatisfied customer will tell their friends creating a bad reputation for the new owners. 

The new owners will have to spend ten times the cost of the gift certificate to try to negate the bad will they created by not honoring the gift certificate.  This is another example of penny frugal – dollar stupid. 

 

In the “Customer Service” chapter in my book Business Fits, I give an example of talking to complaining customers when I was in the Ford-Mercury dealership.  After listening to their complaint, I apologized for any inconvenience and asked what they thought was fair.  Most people did not ask for anything.  They just wanted to be heard and know someone cared.

Check out Business Fits for more details on handling these customer complaints.   Don’t be penny frugal – dollar stupid

Lincoln on Democrats

 “Your purpose, then, plainly stated, is that you will destroy the Government, unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the Constitution as you please, on all points in dispute between you and us.  You will rule or ruin in all events.”

            This is part of the Cooper Union speech Abraham Lincoln gave at in 1860.  He was not yet the Republican nominee for President at that time.  He felt the southern Democrats were unwilling to compromise. 

        It seems nothing has changed and we do not want to learn from history.  The Democrat policies are destroying the country. 

        The southern boarder, inflation, energy, crime, and foreign policy are all in shambles.  The only solution is to reinstate all of President Trump’s policies, but that will never happen.  

        The WOKE mob and the green new deal ideologues would rather destroy the country and the Constitution than admit Trump was a great President.  The Marxists want to destroy the country so they can rebuild it from the ashes. 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Fossil Fuels & the Economy   

The economies of the world run on energy.  Fossil fuels provide the majority of the energy to fuel these economies.  Without fossil fuels, economies decline, jobs disappear, inflation balloons, and the standard of living declines. 

Industry is dependent on transportation which is dependent on gasoline and diesel fuel.  Many products including asphalt roads use petroleum.  We need gas to heat our homes.  Electric vehicles and electric heat are not the answer as the majority of the electricity used is produced by coal and gas.

Batteries to store energy are a problem.  The minerals used to produce them are often mined in countries that are not our friends.  Disposing of the old batteries is also a major problem.  At this time they cannot be recycled and disposal is a major threat to the environment. 

In France, there is a junkyard full of electric cars.  The batteries have given out, and it is too expensive to replace the batteries.  These cars sit in a junkyard because no one will take the old batteries.  They are too toxic, so they just sit and drain into the ground.  At this time there is no solution for the problem. 

The same is true for wind turbines and solar panels.  Everything wears out at some point and what do we do with it?  They are not recyclable and we don’t have or want adequate solid waste sites.  We are not addressing these problems. 

The United States has enough fossil fuel resources to supply our energy needs for hundreds of years.  We need to continue to work on identifying and refining alternative energy sources, but it will be many decades before they will be a viable and dependable source of energy. 

Restricting our production of fossil fuels has caused an increase in gasoline prices and inflation.  It also played an important part in reducing our influence to stop Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

This political war on fossil fuels is a major part of the Green New Deal.  The climate change movement is totally delusional.  Globalists know it is a joke, but are using it to create a new world order and redistribute wealth. 

Is there climate change? Of course.  There has been since the earth was formed and will continue until the earth ends.  The delusion is to think MAN is the cause or can control it. 

I have been watching the so-called climate science for over a decade because I had friends and relatives on both sides of the issue.  I have found zero scientific facts showing man-made emissions cause climate change.  The Left avoids the issue now by saying the science is clear and no longer open to debate.

It is time we stop dancing around this climate hoax and open up fossil fuel production as we continue to work on renewable energy sources.

Oscar Slap  

A movie star slapped a comedian at this year’s Oscars.  Who cares?

The Oscars have been going downhill and ratings have been dropping for decades.  The Oscars were bad, but when they started to be political, they lost half of their remaining audience.  Why do they cater to a delusional WOKE minority?  This has to be a losing agenda. 

The Oscars had another problem as the quality and interest in motion pictures has declined.  Pictures have  gotten political, turning off the audience.  The great movies and movie stars are a thing of the past.  There are no John Waynes or Elizabeth Taylors.  

The Oscars have proven themselves irrelevant, so why is the news giving this incident so much coverage?  The media should be covering numerous problems facing the country like:

  • Election integrity
  • Bloated federal government

Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris is probably the dumbest person to ever serve in a high political office.  It is a travesty that she represents us as our Vice President.  

Kamala’s record as attorney general of California was unimpressive as was her record as a U.S. Senator.  She was the most extreme Leftist in the Senate.  She was a total disaster in her run for President.  She could not even register a couple points in the polls.

Harris has made a lot of mistakes in her political career, and she never seems to learn from them.  She still laughs with that witch’s cackle at totally inappropriate times.  Her speeches show she has no knowledge of economics or how things work.  She can’t deliver a coherent speech, and I don’t think it is the fault of her speech writer.  She can’t seem to keep any competent staff.  I would jump ship too if I were them.  It’s like Kamala is trying to self-destruct.  

We have had many career politicians whose primary goal was personal financial gain.  Joe Biden, Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Dianne Feinstein are just a few who have made millions in politics.  They may have been corrupt and immoral, but they were not dumb.  Kamala is just plain stupid.

Harris accused Biden of a racist history in the Presidential debates, which is true.  Biden is a racist and segregationist, but why would he pick her as his VP?

Kamala’s assignments since becoming vice president have been voter integrity, our southern boarder, and the war in Ukraine.  She has been a total failure with all.  What is she doing with her time?

She always says something meaningless like she is addressing the root cause.  The root cause of most, if not all, of the problems our country faces today are the result of  Biden’s policies. 

Kamala’s dismal failure in her job certainly does not deserve any respect, but she does not agree.  She complains when people do not stand when she enters a room.  This is ridiculous, and of course, she claims it is because everyone is racist. 

Her speeches abroad have been an embarrassment.  She is an embarrassment for Biden, our government, the American people, and our allies.  She is an embarrassment to all women and people of color.  

Kamala should never be allowed to leave the country.  It would be even better if she was locked in a basement.  Hiding in a basement worked for Biden.

Why did Biden pick her for his VP?  She had zero qualifications except she was a woman of color.  Maybe it is because she is so dumb that she makes feeble minded Biden sound smart.

Did Biden pick Kamala for vice president as an insurance policy?  With Biden’s obvious dementia, I never expected him to make it through the first year.  He could have been impeached, removed under the 25th Amendment, or he could have died in his sleep.  None of these seem very attractive with Kamala Harris as Biden’s successor. 

Spiro Agnew was President Nixon’s first VP.  He had to be replaced by Gerald Ford before impeachment proceedings started causing Nixon to resign.  Are there plans to remove and replace Kamala?

Phone Etiquette

When I was General Manager of Duffy’s Collectible Cars my phone habits got pretty bad.   I got to the point where I was not saying hello or goodbye.  I would just say “Terry” when I answered and hang up when I was done.  Thankfully someone pointed this out to me so I could correct my bad habits.    

In the chapter on “Customer Service” in my book Business Fits, I address returning phone calls. 

“The most important lesson in customer service is that when there is a problem, we must talk to the customer the same day.  No exceptions.  Prompt communication is essential.” 

When I took over as plant manager for a recreational vehicle plant, I discovered some employees were not returning phone calls.  When I asked them about it, they said they knew what the person wanted and didn’t have an answer yet.  I told them that returning the call was more important than the answer.  As described in the book, I took extreme actions to correct the problem. 

A couple things that are common with bad phone etiquette involve leaving voice messages.  The first is how people speak very clearly and slowly when leaving a message until they get to leaving their phone number.  That is rattled off so fast that it is impossible to understand.  People should say the phone number slowly and distinctly, and REPEAT IT. 

The second thing is to wait a couple minutes after leaving a message.  Sometimes a person just can’t get to the phone in time and will call back immediately after hearing the phone message.  It is very frustrating to call back and not get an answer.  If the call is worth making, it is worth waiting a few minutes after leaving the message. 

Some world leaders now will not take a call or return a call from President Biden.  Is this bad phone etiquette, or is it just because he is a joke and no longer considered a world leader?  How did we get in this mess?

A Frightening Thought

I have a scary thought for you.  The people that are in charge of our involvement in Ukraine are the same people who were in charge of the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The Afghan withdrawal was a total disaster.  Biden could not have screwed it up any worse if he was trying.  Maybe he was.

Americans and Afghan interpreters died.  Americans and Afghan interpreters and their families were left behind and are still there if they are even still alive. 

We surrendered Bagram military airfield to the Taliban.  We also surrendered $80 billion in military supplies and equipment to them.  There is absolutely no excuse for this. 

Now these same idiots are controlling our involvement in Ukraine.  Russia never should have invaded Ukraine.  Russia invaded countries when Biden, Obama, and George W. Bush were President.  He never made any such attempts while Trump was President.  This is not a coincidence.

The invasion of Ukraine was not a surprise.  It was a distinct possibility since November of 1921 and should have been dealt with then. 

The U.S. was involved with getting Ukraine to give up their nuclear weapons with the understanding that we would protect them.  That has not worked out well for Ukraine.

The US and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) pushed for Ukraine to become a member nation.  Putin had a huge problem with Ukraine joining NATO.  I can understand why.  Ukraine and Russia share a boarder.  It would be like us allowing Cuba to have nuclear missiles in our back yard.  The idea of Ukraine joining NATO should have been dropped.

The best way to control Russia is with oil and natural gas.  The United States was energy independent and exporting oil and natural gas when Trump was President.  Putin was planning the invasion of Ukraine the moment Biden took office and started to destroy our fossil fuel industry.  Biden should have been smart enough to see this last November and reversed his destructive energy policies.

We should have begun weaponizing Ukraine the moment Putin started moving troops and equipment to the Ukraine/Russian border.  Ukraine could use the $80 billion in military equipment we left for the Taliban in Afghanistan.  If Ukraine was well armed, would Putin have tried an invasion?

Ukraine needs to be able to control their airspace.  They needed and still need planes, but it may be too late.  We should have done something like FDRs Lend-Lease program with Britain in WWII last year. 

Why didn’t Biden give them our planes that the Air Force has retired and parked in the desert?  Most of these planes are still operational.  There are over 200 planes sitting in the desert including over 50 F-15s, over 50 F-16s, and over 40 A-10s.  Would Putin have considered an invasion if he knew Ukraine had over 140 fighter planes?  I don’t think so.  It is too late for these planes to be helpful now as there is no time for Ukraine to train pilots.

I hope Biden’s incompetence and commitment to the delusional climate change Left does not get us into WWIII.  We could see Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea unite to conquer the world.  WWII was bad because of two fronts with Germany and Japan.  WWIII with four fronts could be a disaster.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

State of the Union      

I watched Biden’s State of the Union address from start to finish.  It was hard, but I did it.  I wanted to go barf a couple times, but I toughed it out.  The two bobbleheads (Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi) behind Biden added a lot of the nausea.

The speech was like listening to a bunch of political platitudes, slogans, and bumper stickers.  Biden did quite well reading the speech for someone with dementia.  I think he only went brain dead about ten times. He either has no idea what is going on in this country, or his dementia is so bad that he does not have a clue what he is reading. 

The lies were plentiful, but spoken with great conviction.  Biden did not recognize the “Root Cause” for all the problems.  The root cause is all the programs he implemented.  He did not even address some of the problems facing the country.

At times, he almost sounded like a Republican.  He said we had to fund the police and close the southern border.  Obviously, his past and future actions will not address or live up to his promises.   

Biden said he was going to address gas prices and inflation, but gave no actual solutions.  He has no idea how inflation affects working Americans.  He never mentioned making America energy independent, and never gave President Trump credit for achieving it.  He did ask for more delusional Green New Deal government spending which would only make inflation worse. 

I could have written a much better and shorter speech for Biden.  It would go like this:

 

I am so sorry.  I have to apologize to the American people.  Everything I have touched has turned into a disaster.  I will undo the damage I have done and will reinstate all of Trumps policies including finishing the wall on the southern boarder.  I hope you will support me in these changes and forgive my past mistakes.  Make America Great Again.  Thank you and good night.

 

Biden will never admit he was wrong, but I can dream.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Ukraine     

Why is Biden so concerned about Russia invading Ukraine?  He says we have to protect and secure Ukraine’s borders in order for them to be a sovereign nation.  This is bull as he has no intention of securing our own southern boarder.

Does he have loyalty to Ukraine because of the money they have paid to Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family?  There is no way to hide this, but the Left is trying.  It puts President Biden in a bad situation.

President Biden says we have to protect their freedom and democracy.  This too is bull as Ukraine is not a democracy.   It is a dictatorship.    Political opponents to the President have been jailed on trumped up charges with no bail. 

Maybe jailing political opponents is the way the Left wants to define Democracy.  Democrats have done just that with January 7th protestors.  Trudeau has done just that with trucker’s protest in Canada.  These sound like tactics used by Stalin, Hitler, and Castro.

Biden says he will enact sanctions on Russia for invading Ukraine.  Oil and natural gas are the only things keeping Russia solvent.  We could have had some control over Russia if we were energy independent and exporting oil and natural gas. 

Trump had us in the position of energy independence, but Biden has made us energy dependant.  We are currently importing oil from Russia.  We have surrendered any clout we could have had over Russia and are funding Russia’s war effort in Ukraine.

Putin has anticipated and planned for sanctions.  He is ready.  The sanctions will now hurt Americans as bad as or worse than Russians.  Neither Putin nor Biden care about hurting the working class. 

The bigger problem is Europe.  They made the mistake of being too dependant on Russian oil and gas.  They have a real problem if Russian oil and natural gas are cut off.  Germany does not even want banking restrictions that would prevent them from continuing to buy oil and natural gas from Russia.

Russia invaded Crimea when Obama was President.  Now Putin is invading Ukraine when Biden is President.  Putin did not dare do anything while Trump was President.  It is pretty obvious who had the effective foreign policy.  

Knowing all this, why is the White House and Congress so determined to back Ukraine in an armed conflict?  There are two primary reasons.

First, we are not in any armed conflicts at this time and there are not enough wars in the world to support our Military-Industrial Complex.  This industry is an important financial asset to the super rich and political elite.  These globalists endorse a military conflict in Ukraine.  Money is more important than human lives for them. 

Second, the biggest motive for the White House creating a crisis in Ukraine is to distract from the disaster Biden has created domestically.  The people are no longer buying the lies about COVID and Biden needs a new distraction.     

Democrats have to try to distract public attention from inflation, crime, open boarders, drugs, teaching racism in schools, energy prices, corruption in our intelligence agencies, and the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.  They hope to hide these disastrous Biden policies by making everyone concentrate on Ukraine.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Proud Neanderthal    

President Biden called people who did not agree with his COVID policies Neanderthals.   We now know everything the White House, the Center for Disease Control, and Dr. Fauci told us was not correct.  Were they uninformed, misled, stupid, or politically motivated to lie?  

I believe they were politically motivated by the money to be made by pushing the vaccines.  They also wanted the power they could acquire by creating hysterical fear.  They wanted to persuade and program people into giving up their rights and freedoms for a perception of safety. 

Since I disagree with the political lies used with the COVID pandemic, I must be a Neanderthal.  I am proud of it.  I do feel I was duped and am disgusted with myself that I did not recognize earlier how COVID was being used politically.  Maybe I would have found accurate information about who should get and not get the vaccine shot before it ruined my health.   

 

 The people with Trump derangement syndrome seldom have any problem with his policies and actions.  They just don’t like him.  They say he lied about everything, but when asked for just one thing he lied about, they can’t name a single lie. 

They say Trump was not Presidential, because they don’t like some of his tweets, or he called people names.  Personally, I thought some of the names were very descriptive.  “Crooked Hillary” was certainly descriptive and accurate both then and now.

Now Biden calls me a Neanderthal, and Hilary Clinton called me despicable.  Why is it okay for Democrats to call half the people in this country names, but it is not okay for Trump to use a descriptive name for someone.  The double standards and hypocrisy of the Left is almost beyond belief.  If Democrats think their tactics are going to unite the country, they better wake up.

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness  

“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” is from the Declaration of Independence.  Does the Washington DC establishment even care about this?  Or do they look at the working people as pawns to be manipulated and used?

Washington does not care about liberty and the pursuit of happiness or they would not have mandated masks, vaccines, and shutdowns.  It will take decades to recover from the damage caused by the shutdowns.  Some people and businesses will never recover. 

The excuse was to “Follow the Science” and save lives.  We now know that it had nothing to do with the science.  It was all about power and money. 

Speaker Pelosi keeps saying its all about the kids, but she does not care about the damage to kids from shutting down the schools, vaccines and mask mandates.  She does not care about the human trafficking of kids because of the open boarder policy.  She does not give a damn about the kids; it is just political rhetoric.

Washington does not even care about human life.  Defunding the police, bail reform, and failure to prosecute crime has caused an increase in felonies until our streets are no longer safe.  Our federal government has turned a blind eye to all crime. 

President Biden doesn’t care about law and order.  He brags about violating our immigration laws.  He even ignores the Supreme Court’s rulings.    

Racism is talked about a lot and used to discredit anyone who disagrees with the establishment.  Racism is PROMOTED by critical race theory, cancel culture, the lame-stream media, Big Tech, the equity movement, reparation, Project 1619, the Justice Department, hiring and admission practices, and the WOKE mob.  The Left is pushing for everything Martin Luther King fought against.  What happened to judging people on their character?

Washington does not care about black or minority lives.  BLM riots in the street took property, businesses, homes, and lives, but were endorsed by the establishment.  The people most affected by the increase in murders are the poor black communities, but Democrats don’t care as long as they get their vote.

Insurance actuaries have reported that deaths, (not counting COVID) for people in the 18 to 65 age range increased 40% in the third quarter of 2021.  This is alarming as they expect a 10% increase to occur only once in 200 years.

What is causing all these deaths?  Drugs, crime, and the shutdown are part of the problem.  Fentanyl alone will kill more people than COVID, but COVID was used to create hysterical fear and control the peons.  I would think this increase in deaths would be a high priority for Washington, but they obviously don’t care.

These problems are not relative to being conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican.  It is all about the obscenely rich and political elite vs. the rest of the country.  

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Censorship ≠ Free Speech

We cannot have both censorship and free speech.  There are no exceptions.  Hate speech does not qualify.  Misinformation does not qualify.  Outright lies don’t qualify.  People have the right to speak their minds.

Have you noticed that the people asking for censorship are the people telling the lies and giving the misinformation? Misinformation is propaganda.  The Left thinks if they can repeat the lie often enough and silence the dissenters, people will believe them. 

Censorship violates free speech.  It goes as far as personal attacks, intimidation, banishment, and being fired.  This is the cost people pay for telling the truth. 

People trying to promote misinformation never want to hear opposing views, debate, or present facts to prove their statements because there are none.  With COVID, for example, they just say they are following the science with zero data to back up their statements.  They tell us to just blindly trust them.

The media, Big Tech, Big Pharma, the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, Dr. Fauci, and the Biden White House have lied to us from the beginning.  Everything possible was done to discredit anyone who disagreed or questioned them. 

They even want to shut down FOX News.  They can’t stand the truth.  For the last five years Fox has been proven right on every major political issue and CNN has been proven wrong.  CNN continued to push the Russia hoax long after they knew it was a hoax.

Have you heard about the Great Barrington Declaration?  This was a conclusion of 50,000 doctors, scientists, and medical researchers.  They signed a declaration stating that mass isolation and shutdowns did little or nothing to slow or stop the spread of the virus. 

The Declaration was written by the American Institute for Economic Research located in Barrington, MA.  It pointed out the economic and social problems caused by shutdowns, closing schools, and stay-at-home mandates.  Shutdowns cause an increase in other health problems, suicide, unemployment, businesses closing, child abuse, bankruptcy, government debt, depression, inflation, and supply problems.  It will take decades to recover from these shutdowns with no benefit.

Johns Hopkins now has a study confirming everything in The Declaration.  Have you seen anything about either on the news?  It should be a front page headliner, but they are trying to hide it.

Social media, like Twitter, banning someone is censorship and a violation of the First Amendment.  Social media and the lame-stream media hide and discredit verified news stories like Hunter Biden’s laptop.  This illegal censorship may have changed a Presidential election.  Did Biden, Big Tech, Big Phama, and the media do this intentionally knowing it had no scientific benefit, or was it all about money and power? 

When President Biden and Press Secretary Jen Psaki stand at the podium and tell one lie after another, I find it disgusting and immoral, but it is freedom of speech.  The problem is censoring the people refuting their lies.

We must fight for fair elections and taking control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These have to be the first steps to take back this country.

The Uniter       

One of the things Joe Biden promised in his campaign for President was that he would unite the country.  He has done more to divide the country than any President in my memory.  He has claimed that the country is systemic racist, all conservatives are White Supremacist, and Trump supporters are domestic terrorists.  All his nominations are based on a person’s skin color, sex, or sexual orientation.  Most are totally incompetent.  What can be more racist? What happened to Martin Luther King’s dream of all people being judged on their character?

Biden said that anyone in his organization who disrespected another individual would be fired on the spot.  Sounds pretty Presidential, but he called reporter Peter Doocy a “Stupid Son of a Bitch”.  The rules must not apply to him.  We can’t believe a word Biden says.

Some people voted for Biden because he seemed like a nice elderly statesman, but most importantly because he was not Trump.  Biden also claimed to be a moderate, but immediately showed that the radical Left was calling the shots.

Joe calls Doocy names, but he says his drug and alcohol addicted son, Hunter, is the “smartest man I know”.  Hunter does play an important part in the Biden crime family.  The money Ukraine and China have paid the Bidens certainly explains President Biden’s foreign policy decisions.

The first year of Biden’s Presidency has been the worst in history.  He has failed on COVID, the economy, inflation, crime, energy, Afghanistan, and our southern border.  He encourages and assists illegal immigration.  Biden ignores our laws, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution.  He brags about not enforcing our immigration laws.  This is in direct violation of his oath of office and is certainly grounds for impeachment.

People that voted for Joe Biden should have known this would happen.  His history in the Senate clearly showed that he was a racist and segregationist.  He was a corrupt career politician, and had been wrong on every foreign policy decision for forty years.

People voting for Biden did not care who or what he was.  They did not care if he might destroy the country.  The only consideration was that he was not Trump.   

 

We must fight for fair elections and taking control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These have to be the first steps to take back this country.

Data, Studies, Facts, & Science      

We have been living with COVID for a couple years now.  What have we learned?  We have learned a lot, and some facts are irrefutable.

COVID is a deadly virus that kills people.  COVID 19 and the Delta variant are the most dangerous.  The Omicron variant is the most contagious, but the least likely to cause death. 

Seniors, obese people, and people with existing heath conditions are at the greatest risk of dying from COVID.  Healthy young people may contract the virus, but the chance of death is minuscule.  Many will never even know they had it if they are not tested for natural immunity.

COVID deaths are hard to track because half the reported COVID deaths are people that died of other conditions and had COVID.  The actual number of deaths from COVID alone is probably around 50% of the number reported. 

We now know the vaccines do not stop contracting or spreading the virus.  Vaccines may reduce the severity and symptoms of COVID. 

Wearing cloth masks is totally ineffective at stopping the virus spread.  Surgical masks and some others may offer some protection for contracting or spreading the virus. 

The data shows that shutting down the economy does nothing to stop the spread of COVID.  It does harm business owners and individuals.  The financial, health, and emotional damage is incalculable.

Closing schools is stupid and not supported by any science.  It does damage the kids.  They are much safer in school than at home or on the street.  Besides falling behind in their education, suicides and drugs have increased.  This is totally a political move by the teacher’s unions which don’t give a damn about the kids.  The damage to kids is criminal in my opinion.

It is interesting that the CDC and government, with multi-million dollar budgets and tens of thousands of employees, do zero studies on natural immunity.  We have to rely on private studies or studies from other countries. 

We have learned we cannot believe anything we hear from Dr. Fauci, the Center for Disease Control, or the White house.  Is the government hiding the facts from the public to gain power, sell vaccines, intentionally trying to destroy the country, or just totally incompetent?

    Terry,

    I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a monthly article dealing with current and upcoming issues the Barron County Commissioners are dealing with. This article would be posted on the Barron County Republican Party web site. I’m not looking for anything too partisan, unless you want, but more as a source of information on current County issues.

    There is not a lo t(hardly any) traffic on the web site but I’m trying to increase visits. I think this would be one way plus it’s something I would be personally interested in.

    Please feel free to contact me if you are at all interested.

    Thanks,

    Hi Terry….I agree with you on the last election. We have been going down the wrong road for 8 years and another 4 years could have been devastating.

  5. Chuck Nizzi says:

    I feel that “God Bless America” is too much a command. I prefer “Please God, continue to bless America” or Please God, bless America” or “Please Heavenly Father, bless America again”.
    While I’m on that topic I’ve read in Romans (13:1), Titus and the book of Daniel that God places men in places of authority. In reading the Old Testament I see where God gave the Jews some good Kings and some rotten kings. And despite the Jews screwing up regularly and despite God sending prophets to warn them and them not listening… God was still faithful in sending a Savior. The Bible also says to pray for our leaders… wasn’t easy under Obama.
    So I am feeling that Trump could turn out to be a good President. He needs prayer too. Amen?

    When I started reading this I thought you went nuts, but I read on thinking maybe you were going to compare this to healthcare insurance. Great comparison. I do my own car maintenance and I take care of my health and avoid visits to the doctor’s office / clinic like I avoid auto mechanics and ticks. I do buy tires and have them mounted and have had a clutch replaced. Other than that timing belts and water pumps on PT Cruisers don’t even stop me… neither does exercise and trying to eat right and maintain a reasonable weight. Great blog post.

  7. Donald Sedlacek says:

    Hi Terry. Hope you are doing good…. i have been down this same path 12 yrs ago…….new kinds of Meds….Great doctors……. And new ways of keeping the old ticker working!!!!!!!!!!!!!Take Care. Sedlo

    For the USA to get back to a great nation the people will have to turn back to their Christian faith and all that faith encompasses. God will not bless a nation where He is not first in the hearts of the people of that nation. God will not bless an individual where that individual has other “gods”. Trump, like Obama came into power as it says in Romans 13:1 and in other places in God’s Word / Scripture / Bible.And then read on you culturally Christian Democrats, verses 2 – 7 in Romans chapter 13. God’s purpose is to get folks to turn back to, or for the first time to turn to Him and His ways so He can bless them and their nation.
    .

  9. Chuck Nizzi says:

    Yes we need more authentic Christian morality in the USA. The current cultural Christianity found in the USA where a large population claims to be Christian and has bought into the prevailing culture in this country. That has blended a culture which has it’s ” that’s in there” attitude when it comes to scripture they haven’t read again for the first time, into their flavor of morality, faith / view of God’s laws and moral man’s laws. This has weakened the Christian faith to the point where “cultural Christians” accept that which is not true authentic Christianity. They have done this led by some religious denominations who tone down their religion because they do not want to offend those who attend their weekly services. They do not realize that getting back to authentic Christian faith and morality would be good for their flock and the nation. Finally many members of church flocks do not have the guts to bring there faith into their and other’s lives outside their religious organization’s building. They snuff out their light when it comes to taking an active part in remolding their culture back to authentic Christianity.

  10. Chuck Nizzi says:

    State government here in Wisconsin is run by lifelong bureaucrats that write the administrative rules after the legislature passes hollow laws that directs the regulations to be written by all the many State agencies. Trouble with that is that too many of these agencies , DNR, DSPS, DOR, DOA, ETC are “guided” by appointed boards / committees that are loaded with folks with specific self or industry interests and the rules they write on behalf of the legislation are quite biased. Even though they hold public meetings to review the rules, that is nothing more than a dog and pony show. The special interests get their ways because they have the ear of the bureaucrats. And the bureaucrats do not have the integrity (balls) to do the right thing because it is more like work. Take the building Codes, Wisconsin is still stuck on the 2011 NEC and a law passed in 2007 concerning electrical inspections has not had rules passed and approved yet because the bureaucrats are too unmotivated by industry to do their own work and move “forward” . A word found on the Wisconsin flag. Bureaucrats slow down government and when things do not go their “buddies’ “way they find ways to shift rules to satisfy their buddies / lobbyists. Sometimes moving things backwards. And who know whose palms are being grea$ed.

    You are right on about MLK.
