Judge Me Not

 

As a writer, I do not think that I could write a plot, which is as licentious as we see playing out before our eyes.  One would need to be willfully blind or complicit, to agree with the amount of malevolence we are witnessing in DC.

Since Trump’s election, we have seen the Deep State come to life, to obstruct in any way that they can, his ability to do the job of President.  We have seen his own DOJ fight against him from the day he became a candidate, to current day.

The left is losing their grip on your pocketbooks, so they have deployed a hard-core bunch of propagandist, to smear everything that this administration is trying to do.

The latest attack on Kavanagh is sadistic, barbaric and just flat out insane.

When you watch the news, you cannot overlook the most hideous bunch of yapping heads, spewing out garbage to those that hate trump.  They feed on the hate and anger, and those in the mainstream media know just how to give them what they need.

Playing to the emotions of the half that voted Democratic, their job is to paint the Republicans as bad, evil people who will eat your children and screw your daughters if you give them half the chance.

The facts do not bear out this BS but, damn the facts, they just need to continue to sow the seeds of doubt and stir up the liberal base to put their evil hides back in power.

  • Is that what you want?
  • Do you want to pay more taxes?
  • Do you want the jobs to go back overseas?
  • Do you want to go back to building foreign countries up, while sucking the lifeblood out of this one?
  • Do you not see what you are voting for, is another Venezuela?
  • How blind must you be, to not see through the lies of the media?
  • Even the most jaded person out there must see this Hail Mary attempt to slow down the judge’s confirmation, by any means possible as crap.
  • Folks, if they can destroy a man by a mere allegation, they can do it to anyone, including you.

 

Tomorrow we might see some more emotional nonsense, including some crying but in the end, I would watch her checkbook.  Soros is spending Millions to defeat Kavanagh.  Why is Soros interfering with the confirmation of a supreme court Justice?

The world is upside down right now, and the left is pushing that, as the new normal.  It is not!

Firstly, a person is innocent until proven guilty.  When you besmirch a man who has already been through six (6) FBI investigations which gave him the ultimate clearance up to and including the nuclear launch codes, it is now insanity or desperation.  I suspect that any of these recent allegations, released days before his confirmation hearing are bogus, and a trick to delay his hearing until the Democrats retake the house after the mid-terms.

In my mind, they are weasels and should be ashamed of themselves. We the American people are the victims, as we have to foot the bill for this tomfoolery.  We have suffered through two years of a Russian Collusion probe, which has proven nothing, as there is nothing to prove.

The goal is to cheat the American people from the desired outcome of having a conservative in the Supreme Court.  They cannot do it through legal, moral channels so they are cheating.

Here is the real question that I would like for you all to consider.

 

If we believe that Judges are to use the US Constitution as the basis for their opinions on legal matters, what difference does their party affiliation make? This is my rub with the current system.  Frequently, the Supreme Court is divided on party lines.  How is that? Does each side use a different version of the constitution on which to base his or her opinions?

If they are all using the same Constitution, they should all come up with the same conclusion. It would be like ten people going out of the same building, looking up at a clear blue sky, and then reporting on what they saw. Our current bench of Judiciaries could not even all agree that it was a clear blue sky.

How many of them would enter into their opinion that “due to global warming the sky was not as blue as it could have been.  Perhaps they might write the sky was more cerulean blue than phalo blue.

One might even write that the sky was devoid of clouds, rather than saying it was blue.

What we see on the news before us makes me fear what tomorrow will bring.  If the Democrats retake the house, it will be by sheer prevarications. I am sure that if a politician tells you something that you do not want to hear, that they might be more honest than those that tell you everything that you do want to hear.

The left’s tactic is to buy votes by taking money from the middle class. They then use the different judges to get their ways, as they cannot win in a true public court.  The rest of the world is screwed up by greedy people like this, and now they want to tear apart the greatest country on earth, for their own personal gains or….they have someone else pulling their strings.

My novel Presidential Assassins is selling well.  I might have to write a sequel to it.  The news today is rife with fodder for a sequel.  I could include rape chains, witnessed by adults that never spoke of it for 35 years.  Now we have a presidential want to be, a young Perry Mason finds some desperate woman to create a work of fiction, which would stir the emotions of many real victims, of the Me 2 movement.

We cannot win on the facts, so we win in the court of public opinion or emotions.

The Judge is certainly innocent of the claims, but the Democrats need to buy time.  They need to buy time and make the Republicans appear as bad as they possibly can.

For the left to turn the laws of this country around by calling an innocent man a profligate, to further their agenda is absurd.  For the mainstream media to aid and abed the deep state, erodes our constitution, and shows the world just how stupid or greedy that some Americans are.

I have noticed that several of the liberal media, allow their guest to espouse the necessary propaganda while they sit back and just ask the right questions, to make the point. They do this because polls show that they are losing credibility.  “You think?”

I feel for the judge’s family having to go through this.

There are many things that you can fix with Duct Tape; stupidity is not one of them.

Check out my novels.  Let me know what you think of Presidential Assassins.

Tinfoil Hat Election Skullduggery

This would be easy to do and hide.

 

Allow me to preface this blog with, “I am a science fiction writer!”

We writers think outside the box.  Today much of what we have in the way of technology was dreamt up by the likes of who?  Science fiction writers. 

We have this Russia Collusion, voter fraud and Putin’s Bitch mentality going on in this country which is adding to the vitriolic rhetoric and the intolerance of the left and sadly some on the right.

  • Who takes a pickax to a star on the walk of fame?
  • Who dresses in all black and becomes a violent mob actually propagating fascism?
  • Who is stirring the shit?
  • Who does it benefit?
  • Is there really a way for China or Russia or some country that ends in STAN to screw with our elections?
  • Is there really some old rich guy playing god with his millions of dollars just to see what chaos he can cause?

I would offer that our next most significant concerns will be with Social media and those that set themselves up as the thought police.

  • Could our elections be stolen?
  • How would they do it?

In 2010 the Stuxnet virus was implanted in printers that made their way to Iran.  Through print sharing, soon the virus was set free on the uranium enrichment facilities in Iran.  This was a Cyber weapon that nobody will take credit for.

Anyone with a brain would guess Isreal had something to do with it. 

I point that out to proffer my tinfoil hat election tampering idea.

The machines that we use for voting are not connected to the internet or even a phone line.  While they all link together via a switch, there is no connection to the web, ever. That is my understanding.

This would make one think that the machines would be free from tampering.

What if these machines have a worm or Trojan in them waiting to be activated at a specific time and date to skew the numbers?  Is that how Trump won, or Hillary lost?  Maybe this is a new excuse for Hillary to use on her book tour on why she lost.

Before you write me nasty things let me be clear, I don’t think that happened but, it could have.

Not only in this country but abroad in other countries where there is widespread corruption at the higher levels of government, this could be a real possibility.

dianne

Let’s face it. If Dianne Feinstein can have a Chinese spy for a driver for over 20 years, just possibly a trojan written into firmware is worth looking for.

If you want to secure the elections from tampering, you must use positive ID and a paper ballot which of course will once again give us dangling chad!

In an age where we rely more and more on technology, we must stay vigilant with not only our elections but, even these gadgets that we buy to make our lives easier.

Anyone who does not want a positive ID or to take precautions to safeguard our election is probably wanting to cheat.  There is no viable argument against picture ID!

Orwell was a smart guy, and 1984 is a book worth reading in case you have not read it yet.

I would encourage election officials to find a way to download the firmware in the machines, picking random machines from tightly contested areas and have your guru’s see if there are algorithms or viruses in them to “turn on” at certain times?

The Trojan could quickly be written to self-destruct after it had performed its task.

As far as this country is concerned both Trump and the media need to ratchet back the bitterness.  Hyperbole or not, there are loons “pix ax guy” and others who listen to the likes of Maxine Waters and take her acrimony as permission to do violence.

Several petulant individuals need to fade into history before some loon does something unthinkable at there behest.

What You Don’t Know Could Kill You

Not too many years ago I got into it with a local journalist.  She reported that the porn scanners at the airport were safe.

Never mind the invasive nature of these devices. They in fact literally strip you naked for strangers to see more of you than your dermatologist would examine.  Once you get over the horror of strangers gawking at you, and yes they do make fun of you, then you have the radiation to deal with.

She reported that it was safe radiation.

What exactly is “Safe Radiation?”

I was not mean about it. While she was defensive, she was not unkind either.  I think she is unaware of the difference and bought the lie told to her.  I use this in my latest novel which was an excellent device.

The radiation you get at altitude is Cosmic Radiation which penetrates aluminum. Gamma Radiation is from different sources and is dissipated in our atmosphere.

From a chest x-ray, dental X-ray, etc. is ionizing radiation which can cause cells to mutate as they can mess with the DNA. Ionizing radiation can actually heat tissue, and there is no telling what it does to your eyes. Even cosmic radiation can destroy the DNA information creating abnormal growth.

Once the DNA is messed with that messed with DNA replicates and soon you are diagnosed with cancer.

If the DNA is messed with either the cell will die, or repair itself or mutate and then those mutated cells will create more mutated cells with screwed up DNA.

Today I mention this as there was a story about the government using taxpayer dollars to the tune of 5 million dollars to prop up a failing newspaper.

Do you know the purpose of your local paper?

Stalin is quoted as saying that there is no sharper weapon than that of print.

This is true.  If the local paper cannot survive on its own, they should start a go fund me page or some charity might assist them.  Once you are beholding to someone, you can no longer be unbiased.

The paper is, in fact, to hold our leaders accountable for what they do, and how they spend your money.

If the government was your source of revenue how in the world could you write a story about government officials doing things that they should not be doing?

Journalists are to be objective.  That means that you report the news as it happens with no spin, no bias.  Unless you hold yourself out there as an opinion journalist, you have no dog in the fight.

Whether you like Trump or not, he is correct regarding bias in the press. When Mika and Morning Joe say with a serious face that the president is mentally unbalanced, they are holding themselves out there as medical professionals and many will believe it.  That is dangerous talk to have for many reasons.

Someone might actually believe you, and decide to fix it.  No, Mika, you don’t tell Americans what to think.  That is your first mistake. Just report the facts and let the public decide.

When you disparage the president, you disparage millions of people who voted for him.

When you spread lies which are no more than propaganda, you enable loons to feel empowered to do the crazy things we see happen.

The other day a woman rammed a guy’s Jeep because he had a Trump sticker on his car.  She in fact openly admitted it to the officer.  That is assault with a deadly weapon.  What if he had a MAGA hat on and was crossing the road on a crosswalk?  Would she run him over?  Would someone else be that triggered to run them over?

Words are powerful and “Journalist” know better, or they should.

I can see some lawyer defending her now.  He would move the case to New York or LA where the bias is so blatant they could find enough jurors to agree that the guy had a red hat on so he needed to die… Good Job woman, here is a medal for getting rid of one more Trump supporter.

This is the crazy world we live in.  And it is the media’s fault.

One of the things that Journalist learn is not to publish things that could be hurtful.  Report the facts as they are and don’t spin them.

No, Tax dollars should not be used to prop up a failing media outlet.

I make it a point not to watch any media that is biased.  How do you know if they are?  When they openly cheer on camera when another outlet reports that they have the smoking gun to impeach Trump, I think you can assume that they are biased.

I have a challenge to issue to the MSM and President Trump.  Now you all will have to retweet this so they might see it but here is the dare. 

President Trump, you say you can negotiate with these other world leaders, can you negotiate with the destroy Trump media?  CNN and the rest.  You used to have a really good name, what the hell are you doing?  Can you create a cease-fire and just report the news good or bad?  Don’t give us this crap about the president is deranged, we know better.  The facts speak for themselves and by the way you are giving his supporters red meat.

New York Times.  Wow, you folks were the bastion or standard bearer for the news. WTF?   When you hire an openly hostile racist, and you defend it, whatever smidgeon of credibility you had left you lost.

Anyone that is that racist needs help.  She does not need to be in any position where she can promote her brand of bigotry.  Racism is just ugly, no matter who espouses it.

In my latest novel Presidential Assassins, I use much of this as fodder for a very entertaining story.

Before I leave you I have a question speaking of flying and the TSA…  Why is it every time I fly my TSA lock goes missing? Those things are not cheap.  They are not cheap unless of course you buy them on eBay for less than $4 for a lot.  Connection ??  I want to know where these came from.

tsa locks

3 for $55

 

How about these?

tsa locks ebay

Starting bid $4.00 on Ebay…

Dear TSA, if the images are truly non invasive as I have read in a few places, allow me to see it for myself.  If you are up front about it, and allow me to pick the place (s) I will write a an article saying so.  Until then I dont trust you, and with your track record I dont think anyone really can..

Ticket to Heaven

Is Heaven what you think it is? How do you feel about where you are now?

 

Do you have yours?

When the trumpets sound and those famed horses come riding from the sky will you be headed to heaven or the other place?

Do you think that there is a place after death?

Sitting in church this morning I was taken aback by a substitute preacher whose sense of humor was lackluster at best.  He laughed at his own jokes, and that was off-putting but, his message resonated with me.

My mind drifted to the polar express with the CGI version of Tom Hanks punching virtual holes in virtual tickets.  The bell would ring, but there was no sound.

We are like that bell, we ring, but people don’t hear us.  Why?

Reading the news today there was stern warning from some newspaper exec who said he warned the president that taking on the media would lead to violence.

Make no mistake about it there is a war in this country and others.  The dichotomy is still between the haves and the have-nots, and it is exacerbated by the media and the power brokers who are losing their grip on the throne or that fabled ring that was “my precious!”

The elite have been in power so long that those threats to their supremacy is now real, so the weapons of war have been elevated to Defcon 2.  Nobody is safe in this war as the minions of darkness pull no punches.  They have mobilized their armies, and nobody is immune from their evil purpose.

The media is behind the power brokers, and those power brokers or the elite do not differentiate themselves with that famous R or D.  They are in fact the entrenched who have spent millions of dollars for jobs that pay $150K a year.  They are the few who have their own set of laws that make them better than you or I.  Using tax dollars to pay off sexual harassment victims is only the very veneer of their treachery.

Pandering to those that are not informed, or woefully misinformed by a failed education system, the power brokers are now looking to import a new class of voters as most Americans can see through the haze of purple Kool-aide and in fact have been the benefactor of tax cuts.  Most Americans have seen their part of the world improve and can see the benefit of a non-nuclear Korea.  They also understand that talking with the Russians vs. lobbing nukes with them is a good thing.

Only the creatures of the swamp see this is a bad thing as there are enormous amounts money to be made peddling hate. Much like there is considerable money to be made treating a disease vs. curing it, nobody in power wants either.  Treat or control the condition or opposition but, do not do away with it.

This is the sad reality that we face today, and it is all about hate and fear vs. love.

The rhetoric on the left is so hyper-partisan that people without a dog in the fight have hatred for our president.  Some foolish people in London created a balloon in the likeness of our president as big baby version of Trump. Under the guidance of and permission by the leadership of the mayor of London, flew that balloon during Trump’s visit.

This is the mayor who told the good folks of London, that Terrorism is a way of life, get used to it! My cousin is spinning in his grave!  No, Terrorism is evil, and it must be sent to hell, where it belongs.

Love is the opposite of hate and Fear is the mechanism that begets the opposite of love.  Propagandist push hate and fear to manipulate the masses.  Once they push it, they tell you who is to blame for it.  They are in fact an agent of the devil and need to be ignored.

If you have ever doubted spiritual warfare before, turn on CNN or MSNBC and listen to the hate and fear mongering.  They are over the top negative and in fact, have not seen fit to publish anything good about this current administration.

4.1 GPD in the second quarter.  They reported it could not be done. After it was done, they have downplayed it and predict that it will crumble soon. Patriots, or agents of hell?

Tax Cuts and yes they are not crumbs Ms. Pelosi If they are crumbs why do you want them back? Yes the media is on her side.  Patriots or agents of hell?

Denuclearization of the rogue regime in North Korea  “Folks that is huge!” They have not said anything good about it and in fact said our president gave away the farm. Patriots or agents of hell?

The return of hundreds of our fallen heroes from a war fought over 70 years ago.  Did they congratulate Trump for that or did they say Obama got it started or perhaps you didn’t build that…? Patriots of agents of hell?

Getting along with a superpower who has more nukes than we do pointed at us… Trump is an idiot they said and they as much as said he is a puppet for Putin. Patriots of Agents of Hell?

Call me silly, but I think getting along with the schoolyard bully is probably a good thing. As one bully to another, I am glad our bully has a charming wife that keeps him in check.  She has much more class than any in the media. She is a patriot!

MSNBC and CNN have not had any airtime to these things and in fact, have “experts” on downplaying them as if they are nothing. Patriots or agents of hell?  C’mon you know this!

Just maybe we don’t need cable TV?

Just possibly we need to cut the cord, remove the dish, and send a clear message to Comcast and Time Warner, Spectrum, FiOS and whoever the hell else sells this shit! We have had enough.

Does the FCC have any control over hateful stuff like this?  It is not news it is Pravda!  It is lies covered in Yellow Journalism.  There is nothing objective about it. They are a pit of vipers!

Maybe we don’t purchase things from their advertisers, just to send a message that we are tired of being played by you dolts. (that is polite to what I wanted to type.)

What does it take to do away with evil?

It takes righteous anger, and then it takes love.

When you cannot have a conversation with an old friend, who happens to watch one of those other networks that spew partisan Pravda like rhetoric, the hate has gone too far.  Hate coupled with fear coupled with ignorance is a damned dangerous combination.

What is happening on our southern border is not immigration, it is an invasion.

We have tens of thousands of American kids who need those resources now being given out to people from countries more corrupt and feckless than ours. Mexico needs to be held accountable for allowing this to happen, and it is past time.  Should we invade Mexico and occupy them until the corruption is gone? Maybe we should invade DC and clean up that mess first.

Our government here in this country needs to also be held to a higher standard.  We the people need to send that same message and that my friends, is with love.  Whoever their sponsors are, let them know we have had enough.  Stop buying their products!

Obama showed us the way through community organizing.  Let’s show them the way through righteous anger, and then love.

Yeah though I walk through the valley of shadows, I will fear nothing for we are the righteous ones with the armor of God to protect us from these evil villains who hold our country captive in their evil talons.  Pushing their poison through that black cable coming into our living rooms, needs to cease. Cast them out, and you do that by cutting the damned cord.  Silence in the face of evil, is evil in and of itself.

What does heaven look like to you?

Does it have CNN, MSNBC or Fox?

You’re in the wrong place.

Have your ticket ready….

Can you hear the bell?

 

If you should decide to cut the cable, which I admit is extreme, you will have more time on your hands.  My latest novel is out on Amazon, Presidential Assassin’s… Pick up your copy for a very inexpensive $2.99.  112k words of thrilling entertainment for less than some covfefe…

Yes, I am a little wound up about the subject as I see how this hate is like a poison that you take in hopes that if affects your enemy.  It is killing us.  Hate is incredibly destructive and used as a weapon like the media is doing, is just evil.

Whether you voted for Trump or not, he is the president of the United States and we need for him to succeed.  If anyone is against him, they are against this country… Think about it.  Are the people you watch for or against him.  If the later, they are against the United States of American and that means that they are against you! This is absolutely true, so why are you watching them?

Not a trump sycophant, I would and did say the same things about Obama.  Full disclosure, I had high expectations for Obama.  I figured with him as a role model, these kids in the inner cities might be lifted up and know that anything is possible.  Boy did we dial a wrong number.  Racial bigotry is higher than I have seen it since the assignation of Martin Luther King.

Love is missing here, and we need to figure it out.

Thanks for reading my blog and following me.

If you look to the right you will see my twitter feed that is marketing my latest novel.  Think about it as you ponder what I have said here.  As always if you have some differing opinions and share them in a civil way I will happily engage you in conversation.  I am not about hate, and will not tolerate its evil seeds to be sown in my garden.  How do you like that metaphor?

Gun Violence, the debate continues but need it?

 

I must admit that every time I hear about a school shooting, it makes my blood boil.  The Church shooting a few months ago changed my life as Church is a large part of mine.   Last evening when I was reading some of the posts on social media I responded somewhat critically as some are apparently not privy to the facts.

Check this out.

Over 26,000 Mexicans were murdered last year by gangs and cartels.  You don’t hear about it on our news because even the most dimwitted among us would figure out it was because they cannot defend themselves.  Their government made guns illegal to reduce gun violence.  Someone forgot to give the memo to the cartels and other miscreants “animals” in that society.

The violence in Mexico and in South American continues on, every year with tens of thousands murdered and our news says nothing about it.  Why?

The Mexican news blames the drug users in America for the problem. If there were no demand for the drugs, the cartels would not have the business ergo, there would be no cartels.  So if you smoke pot, it is your fault according to their news anchors.

That is also their rationale for America to take in the tens of thousands crossing our border yearly.

Some of them crossing the border are to get away from the violence, and some are the animals which Trump spoke of, and again his comments were taken out of context to serve a purpose. The purpose is to create animus and further divide our country.  The citizens of this country if they ever figure out who the enemy really is, I wonder if CNN and others will survive?

The NRA is protecting your right to defend yourself with yes a gun. You don’t have to buy a gun or know how to use one.  Those of us who would rather not be a victim should have that right.  Those of you who rail against the NRA are responsible for their supporters giving them vast amounts of dollars.

The NRA is just an organization which lobbies on behalf of those that sell guns and those that want to own them.  Yes, I see that there is a capitalistic connection but, we are a capitalistic country. That smartphone or tablet that you are using would not have been created if we were not a capitalistic society.

Do I buy the whole militia bit?  No.

If our government wanted to take our guns away, it would be doable.  They would destroy the very fabric of the nation by doing so, but they could do it.  Could you imagine your kids or grandkids wearing the uniform of our military coming for your guns?

The Gun that is the poster child for all of this media hype is really nothing more than a cosmetically altered rifle that if taken to the battlefield would get our boys and girls killed.  It is semi-automatic and small caliber. That is very much unlike the military version which is full auto and large caliber.  It merely looks or appears to be something that it is not.  Is it deadly?  Sure!  Would it be an equal match for any military weapon?  Hell no!

They designed the gun to appeal to the gun enthusiast who thinks that it looks bad ass.  I would never own one.  A good deer rifle is much more accurate.  This would be the same person who would buy a Maserati to go to work in. Much like owning a sports car that will do 150 in a place where you can only drive 60, what is the point? Oh yeah, it looks bad ass!  Is it a comfortable car?  No.  Is it a nice riding car? No! it is a status symbol, and it seems bad ass.  Same mentality.

Our local news here in Dallas reported that the Santa Fe shooter used AR style guns to perpetrate his killing spree. They blatantly and willfully lied to trigger emotional responses from those of us who care about such things and to further their anti-gun agenda. This was well after Greg Abbot told the world in his news conference what the weapons were.

They may or may not retract the article but tens of thousands read it, and few will ever see the retraction or put two and two together.  That is yellow journalism and irresponsible.

The Animal used a shotgun and a .38 revolver.  He was somewhat efficient using them.

The debate will live on partially spurred by facts and partly by fiction created by those with an agenda.

If you are a student of history, you know that every time citizens were disarmed by their government terrible things happened.  If you were not aware of that,, I would encourage you to visit your local library and read a few books.  ,

Today if you are the victim of a home invasion, and you do not have the means to defend yourself or your family; when the police finally arrive it will be to write up the report, put that yellow tape around the property and see that the bodies make it to the coroner.

Sorry for the run on sentence. Those are the facts.

If you are a lady and some animal wants to rape you the advice given by lawmakers running in 2016 was to piss yourself.  No self-respecting rapist would want you if you had pee on you.. This is a true statement, and it is bullshit!

How about you pull out your nine millimeter Kimber and start pulling the trigger until it just clicks?

Animals like that are rabid and disserve to carry your bullets in a watermelon-sized pattern in the center of their chest.

No woman should suffer rape, and no woman should be told to piss themselves as the first line of defense!  Yes, that was uncle Joe who proffered that advise.

In London as we speak, or as I type, they were told by their mayor that terrorist attacks are a way of life and they should just get used to them.  “No, they don’t have guns either. Well, not the citizens.”

Now they have released what to do if you are the victim of a knife attack or acid attack.  If you can, you are to run and hide and cower until the threat has passed.  If you are stabbed, you are to put pressure on the wound and call police when the danger has passed. If you are splashed with acid, you are to wash the acid off when you can find a place to do that, and then call police when you are no longer in danger.

Can you imagine being told by your government that this is a way of life, get used to it?

Think about that.  The president of this country tells you something like that, I would go bonkers!

If there were no NRA, how long would it be before some president issued that edict here in the good old USA?

I am for responsible gun ownership, and I always will be.

What does that look like?

A person of sound mind and body is the number one priority.

Guns in the home must be made inaccessible to those that did not purchase them legally.

The person who does own them should go to the range a few times a year and re-familiarize themselves with the weapon and its reliability to accurately hit the target and that the mechanism is in good working order.

Most guns today are sold with a trigger lock.  If you don’t have a gun safe you can at the very least utilize the trigger lock when the gun is not in use.

Personally speaking, if you cannot afford a gun safe, you should not own a gun.  That is my opinion.

I am for marrying technology and gun ownership.  Why not invent or design guns using the biometric fingerprint technology that Apple already has?  You pick up the gun, and it quickly maps your handprint and arms itself.

Someone steals the gun from you, it is useless.

You die, hopefully, of natural causes, the gun dies with you.

The government can provide the gun, and there would be no resale value as it would only work for the owner.

Folks we have this technology why not “make it so!”

I realize that this is a form of gun control and I as a second amendment supporter would advocate for it.

When my employees would come into my office and begin to whine about some issue, I would allow them to finish and then ask them. “What should we do about it?” If they did not have any idea I would send them away until they had one.

One should never just bitch without at least making an effort to devise a solution to the problem.  At least at that point, you can start a dialogue.  Knee-jerk reactions are almost never a good idea.

Feeding your Characters, Part II

What sparks your creative juices?

 

Waves of Emotions, Does the Moon Affect them like the Tides of the oceans?

Many of you know that I have been dealing with the loss of a close friend who recently passed.  The things in life that we take for granted, the smile, knowing look, the chuckle that you caused,  and that voice on the other end of the line that you come to know as your lifeline to reality, those are precious… When those are gone, and you are left alone…the tides roll.

As one who has always “adopted” older friends it has been my privilege to know and care for many that have since passed. Each and every one unique and precious and missed.  Two of the last three I was asked to do their Eulogy, which if you have never done, try and get through it without becoming a basket case in front of countless people.  It is not easy.

The more you care, the more it hurts, and the harder it is.

Spending days writing it I finally had to remove anything in it that would trigger me, and then it was still a challenge.

Today I was dealing with their family trying to be of some assistance, and it brought back the pain all over again.  Facing the “residual” of a friend trying to assess some monetary value to it as to assist their survivors is just miserable!

The “things” the treasures that charmed them and we are now relegated to boxes of stuff waiting for an estate sale.

I often go to antique malls looking for trinkets that “charm” me but more often than not I look for things that might inspire a story.

From strange tools to old tchotchkes that someone treasured a long time ago interests me.  I once bought an ancient relic that looked like it belonged to some tribe in some dark jungle as I thought if I could imbue it with magical properties it might make a story.  Who knows.

I sift through old black and white photos of people who have long since passed that have found their way to the antique malls and make up little stories about them as I hold their picture in my hand.  If the story sounds good, I buy the image, and he or she becomes a character in a novel.

Many of you can relate to the loss of a loved one.  You know that the waves are real and sometimes they can bury you.  I keep some memento of them around me as they were important to me for decades.

How do you deal with loss?

Stuff cannot replace them.

The things we find in antique malls are just effects that meant something to someone long ago.

On multiple occasions, I have purchased boxes of “things” on eBay.  This one box I bought the person who sold it took care to wrap each individual thing in tissue.  There were old lenses from glasses.  There was a model of an old delta airplane. There was a marionette that is probably from the thirties. There were some timeworn cufflinks, a watch and just basically a drawer of someone’s stuff that was put into a box and sold. There was even a broken glass figurine of a toucan. Where did that come from and how it did come to be in that drawer and how did it get broken.

I got the box and looked at each and every little thing including the old glasses.  This was the residual of a life. The old airplane they probably got when they flew.  The little marionette might have been passed down to them from a grandparent.  The watch was old and well-worn but, it too told a story.

I carefully wrapped the stuff back up and stored it away for a future day when I need an idea.  Those trinkets will live again in some story and by them becoming part of one of my novels, the previous owner in some small way will also live again through my words.

If you are a writer, go visit antique malls.  Spend time looking at the trinkets on display, and if something sparks a thought,, you know what to do.

Some things I snap a picture of as I have no desire to haul some piece of furniture home but….I found an article that I will tell you about.

In this old downtown store, there was this small desk that belonged in a classroom from eons ago. The chair was in front, and the actual desk with the writing surface that lifted and a place to store crayons and such were underneath the writing surface.

This was designed very differently in that the chair in front of the person who used the surface of the desk was contingent on the person sitting in the chair not moving the desk.  It was, in fact, a piss poor design to get the maximum amount of students in one small space but…Wow!

I immediately thought of “Good Night John Boy!”

Many of us go into such places looking for something to charm us to purchase it.  I look for fodder for stories.  I never know what will “trigger or spark” an idea.

Search “box of crap” on eBay and see what comes up.  I used to challenge people to pick up an item and write a story about it.  I would have a box of stuff and tell them to reach in and grab something without looking.  Take it back to their desk and write.

To you my pretties, feed your characters.  Find an item and write something on your blog, and tell me about it.

What if there were no politicians?

What would it take to get the news media to just report the bloody news?

I have said it time, and time again the news is toxic. Everything you read or hear is suspect.  Are they just telling you the facts or are they practicing yellow journalism?

There was a reporter who I knew personally that years ago reported that the scanners at the airport were safe and not as invasive as the pictures were showing.

I know better, and I called her on it accusing her of practicing yellow journalism.

What is Yellow Journalism?

Basically, it is half-truths.

“Officer, did you try to stop the bank robber?”

“Yes!”

“Did you pull your service revolver?”

“Yes.”

“Did you pull the trigger?”

“Yes.”

“And the bank robber still got away with the money?”

“Yes.”

“Your excused officer.”

 

“Boy, I am sure glad they didn’t ask me if my gun was loaded.  I keep my one bullet in my pocket just in case.” He thought.

That is an example of yellow journalism.  Albeit fictitious and oversimplified.

My friend was telling the world via the news media that the scanners at the airport were safe and one would get more radiation at flying at altitude than using the scanner.

The lie or half-truth is that they are two different kinds of radiation.  Flying at altitude is cosmic radiation which is known to cause skin cancer.
Many Pilots get skin cancer from spending many hours above 30,000 feet.  If you are a frequent flyer, go see a dermatologist regularly.

“You really do get used to having people examine all of you…NA, not really!”  On my last visit, she looks at me in the face as I sat there with that flimsy paper gown falling off and shakes my hand and says. “It was nice to see you again…”  Think about that one.  She had just finished examining every nook and cranny.  Rude bits included. “Nice?” I know, I am overreacting.

The kind of radiation that the scanners at the airport use are ionizing radiation which penetrates your body much more in-depth and does more damage than that of cosmic radiation. Yes, your chromosomes and DNA can be messed with.  From cancers to who knows what.

What does that do to your eyes?  Can it heat up the internal structures of the eyes causing them to get cataracts or maybe stop functioning as they normally would?  I know, let’s ask someone in the news who has stock in the company that makes the machines, that will certainly get us the truth!

And then there is in some back room someone looking at everybody’s naked body one at a time.  While I would imagine that they would become numb to it after a bit, the powers that be, are lying to us.

Is the old Jack Nicholson quote true? “Can we not handle the truth?”

Goddammit, this is America, not some third world dictatorship!  Or is it?

What brought this to the forefront is the media and their complicit passion of assisting the liberal hooligans who want to disarm Americans and sell their poison using every disaster that happens as a wedge to pit one American against another.  Then you have paid operatives who stir the animus created on both sides to further the schism that they have created.  The chasm is already so deep that a Trump voter had best not tell anyone who he voted for.  Did you see the guy get pulled out of his car and beat up because he had a Trump/ Pence sticker on it?

Today there was a politician railing against guns.  He called the rifle “fully semi-automatic.”

I am sorry you ignorant moron, the non-shooting public may be traumatized by your rhetoric but the “truth” is, it is either fully automatic or semi-automatic.  I have no effing idea what a fully semi-automatic weapon is.  It is kind of like being fully half naked.  I am either dressed or naked, not both.

How about clam chowder soup?  It is either chowder or soup. 

How do they find these morons to interview?  Do they give them a script?

Lies and half-truths are to manipulate the voters.  They need to tie all gun violence to the NRA and the Republicans. Entirely a false narrative but so many will hear “fully semi-automatic” and say, “we need more gun control!” Not having a clue that what the moron just said was bullshit!

I really do want accountability in the press.  They should not be able to knowingly lie to you. In government parlance that would be collusion.

What are the long-term politicians afraid of?

Do you want to know who is crooked in DC?

I can tell you an easy way to determine who.  While this may not be 100% accurate, I bet it is at least 95% correct.

Those that are squealing the loudest like a pig stuck under a gate, foolishly not supporting our president are most likely the ones that need to go. Their gravy train with biscuit wheels is being threatened by a man who cannot be bought.

Do you realize how many people have run for office on getting term limits passed and it has never happened?

It is time for the crooks to be prosecuted and those long-term “politicians” to go home.

When the media is in bed with the snakes in the swamp, we the American people are the victims.

  • Is it time to look at how we elect our “rulers” and lawmakers?
  • It is past time to look into the appointed demigods who think that they know better than you?
  • Is it time to hold the press accountable for creating this rift between the American people?
  • Is it time to tell comedians that they are not funny when they poke half of all Americans in the eye with a stick?

If you want to take over a country, you control or dismantle the press. In war times they took out the transmitting towers. They jammed the airways keeping the people from hearing the truth.  Some countries do not allow any outside input to get to their citizens to keep them in line.  Of course, they also do not have any weapons, so they are entirely subjugated by the ruling class. We are headed that way, and our press is complicit with those that want to destroy this country.  Why?

  • If you voted for Trump, good for you.
  • If you voted for Hillary, good for you.
  • If you voted for Bernie, Bless your heart but, good for you.

At least you voted!

I would like to see legislation passed to hold the press accountable for knowingly spreading lies and propaganda.  Whether it is for ratings or some darker more nefarious purpose, it is time to stop the hate, and that starts with the media.

It should not make any difference which network you watch.  The news should be the news.  Journalism in our country seems dead at the moment, and I believe that the community organizing of one community against the other is to blame for it.

Like labeling on cigarettes, if some talking head is “opinion” based a label on the screen should alert the viewer “Caution what you are looking at and listening to is biased opinion and not necessarily the truth.”

Who is behind this community organizing?  Who is spreading so much vile hate and ugliness? Who is promoting these lies and myths at the expense of children?

Hold these people accountable.

 

That is all!

I am going back to writing fantasy as I create the rules, the settings, the relationships and I can kill whoever I want to! I can also love whoever I want to.  There is power in the pen, and that is doubly true for the keyboard and a fertile imagination.

Please check out my site, my tweets and most of all my novels.  The last one is selling like hotcakes!

If you have a comment, feel free to agree, disagree or just say hello.  Please keep it civil as I really am about stopping the hate.  Hate is toxic! 

Love will fix a lot of blunders and just stupid prejudices, and that is what I am about. There is no room on this earth for bigotry and hate, and it starts with you; Love someone.
