Biden admits Harris is in charge.

For months, many people have wondered just when Kamala Harris would find a way to push Joe Biden aside to become President should the Democrats win the 2020 Presidential election. Biden’s recent foot injury reignited those questions, only for Biden himself to confirm all suspicions. In a recent video, he admits that should he and Harris disagree on something, he’ll “come down with a disease and have to resign.” He even said “as I told Barack,” indicating he would have resigned as VP to allow Obama to install a different yes-man to the office were there a point they couldn’t agree on.

When coupled with the multiple reports of fraud, video of ballots being pulled from under a table in a suitcase, dead Americans voting, and even tens of thousands of Georgians who were not 18 at the time of the election voting, this just rings another warning bell about the presumptive Democrat administration.

Americans vote every four years, not for the 2nd place candidate to oust the Presidential nominee, but for that nominee. The election of 2016 saw claims of fraud and “Russian collusion” from the Democrats, only for 2020 to see the Democrats all but foaming at the mouth as they demand no one even investigate the election, but to just declare Biden the winner.

Biden floated a cabinet pick, with the man named being on record as saying life after 75 isn’t worth living, yet he would have to work for a man now 3 years past that point. Is it any wonder that within a week of the election, one of the most common searches on Google was “how do I change my vote?”

Once again, the left is violent

Beginning in late spring of 2020, the country, and in fact the world, has watched as liberal groups have rioted, robbed businesses blind, and burned anything they can to the ground, all over what many say are manipulated events designed to foment this hate in society. George Floyd, while he should not have been killed by those arresting him, was extremely high on several illegal drugs, had a history of violence, and resisted arrest. It’s very well known that when high on any of many drugs, people can exhibit enhanced strength, Floyd all but attacked the officers, so was put on the ground, and sadly, one of the officers chose to act in a way that, possibly, lead to the man’s death. Had they let him go, and he hurt someone else, the riots would still have happened as it would have been a case of “police won’t do their jobs and keep us safe, we must defund them,” followed by wanton destruction of everything possible.

Today however, the narrative is changing, slightly in some cases, not slightly at all in others. The elections of 2000 and 2016 both saw the DNC candidate sue and protest as long as they could, working to find a way to change the results so they would become President, Gore famously sued for 37 days, and the media and liberals the world over praised him for “working to ensure the election was not unfair.” Today however, as the media watched on 3 November and called states for Biden with more than 50% of votes uncounted, while refusing to call states for Trump when over 85% of votes were counted, then magically, votes show up after counting was supposedly stopped that tip a state to Biden, Trump is required to concede and all but say “I’ll leave now, we don’t have to wait until 20 January.”

Well, it’s now escalated, and while Twitter has suspended the miscreant, this is one person, and there are many others who think the same. It seems that Adam Rahuba decided to tell the President Of The United States that he had 4 days to concede or he and his comrades would begin ATTACKING PEOPLE and blocking the economy in full in “conservative areas.” He also said they were armed and would “retaliate to attempts at vehicular manslaughter.”

Now, I live in Texas, where thankfully, our state government has yet to demand we surrender our rights to keep and bear arms, or to defend ourselves from attack. If I am driving and see armed people blocking the street, you can bet my truck will be doing 70 or more as I do all I can to escape those attempting to stop me for God only knows what purpose. I’ve watched as people are stopped, dragged from their vehicle, then assaulted and left, all but dead, laying in the street. The question though, really is a simple one, why do liberals feel they have the right to assault, steal, and destroy, and that any attempt to stop them is a crime? The answer, sadly, is just as simple, they’ve been told that anyone trying to stop them “doing as they please” is “denying their right to happiness.”

It’s very simple, YOU DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO HAPPINESS! You have the right to PURSUE HAPPINESS, which also means you may fail in that pursuit. The very people screaming that you can’t drive where they say you can’t, that you can’t defend your life when they attack you, and worse, are the very people who would demand you be hanged at dawn if you even sidestepped to go around them when they block traffic. It’s going to get worse before it gets better, so keep your eyes and ears open, your head on a swivel, and your powder dry.

All thanks to Obamacare

In 2012, famously, Nancy Pelosi said of the ACA that we “had to pass it to find out what’s in it.” Obama had said “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” and “if you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.” The first proved to show us “what’s in it” was astronomical premiums and deductibles, then we found we lost our plans and Doctors.

Just over a week ago, my foot was in BAD shape, so I chatted with the online service I subscribe to, where I was prescribed topical and oral medications, but they didn’t work. A few days later I went to the local ER, where the prescriptions were changed, only to see those make me break out in a rash that was worrying, so I went back to the ER two days later, where I was sent to hospital. After a night of little sleep, a specialist saw me and my prescriptions were changed once again, this time they worked and I’m almost back to 100%, but now I face medical bills after a week off where, due to having no vacation time, I am a week short on pay.

Thankfully, my debtors are working with me, so my burden is lower, but not low enough to ensure the loss of a week of pay is unnoticed, yet those in DC still prattle on about how we “must” just accept socialist healthcare, where the costs will see tax burdens increase exponentially, while ignoring the countless people telling them of the failures of the ACA.

I can’t help but wonder just what it will take to convince the vaunted members of Congress that they are, as always, wrong.

How much longer?

We’ve watched since February and March, when we were told it would be “two weeks to flatten the curve,” only to see society locked down more and more as we just sit and let those in power rule. Even in “conservative” Texas, we are forced to wear masks, despite countless medical experts saying they don’t work, or studies showing this is insane.

Today, I found video of Doctors in the Netherlands stating, very succinctly, that Covid 19 is a flu virus, and thus, we do not have a pandemic.

I’ve seen videos of this sort banned on social media for over a month now, and until today, it seemed that no one would be even asked to stop censoring the experts. Cheekily, I ask Twitter users or YouTube commenters to prove they are an MD, with years of experience studying viruses, and their peer reviewed, double blind, study, proving them wrong, but now it’s not out of cheek, but to prove they are not in any way qualified to debunk MD’s who say this pandemic BS is just that, BS!

So, the question now truly is, how much longer will people sit idle as they are controlled under systems that would make Orwell roll in his grave?

Could you really survive if you bugged out?

I’ve seen many people on social media in the last few months talking about their bug out bag, or plans if they have to live in the woods, and with very few exceptions, I just have to laugh. Warrior Poet Society posted a video on YouTube that was amazingly informative for anyone who’s thinking along these lines, it boils down to one thing, 99% of people will be raided by those with the skills to do so. Your “arsenal” will go to them, as will your food, water, and so on.

There will, honestly, be three or four groups of people if society truly crumbles. First, you’ll have those with the skills to survive, either working as a team to protect wherever they fortify, or alone, so far from people, you’ll never even smell them. Two, the raiders, they’ll fortify a location, and raid for supplies. Three, the victims, those raided, some will go with the raiders to join their collective, others will be left without anything. And finally, the slaves, those who refuse to leave until it’s too late, stuck in a major city where warlords will rule.

So, the question is which will you be. Honestly, it would be hard to be the first type, as that would include the possibility of leaving everyone in your life behind. I know I couldn’t do that, but thankfully, my parents, nephew, brother and future sister in law would be coming with me. There are others who would refuse, but honestly, they cut me and my other family out of their lives a while back. My Father taught us how to catch fish, snare a rabbit, grow vegetables, collect water, build a shelter, make fire without a match, and how to fight, starting at a young age. I know that, even if alone, I would have food, water, and shelter, which are all you really “need” to survive, not to mention the tools and training to ensure I am not attacked and stolen from. When coupled with my plan to be so far from people, I fade from memory, I believe I could last a while.

The point of this isn’t to be morbid or otherwise scare you. I could be happy just sitting in my tent and listening to nature, or watching YouTube, but many couldn’t, they “need” their tech. The purpose is a thought experiment. Could you, if you had to, walk away from your comfortable home (if you couldn’t fortify and defend it) and survive long time, outside of society?

Masks, the questions not being asked

We are all but ordered by the federal government to wear masks everywhere we go, despite so many Medical Doctors and other experts saying they not only don’t work, but are dangerous. NOLA Nurse on Twitter shared a story about a woman taken to the hospital and told she had Covid19 and only days to live, until someone else had her tested again, and found she had Leionnaires’ Disease which was caused by wearing the mask, due to people being all but unable to avoid touching their face, adjusting the mask, most not wearing it correctly, and more.

In my area of Texas, the masks do not need to be medical or even an actual mask. I’ve seen people just pull their shirt up a bit, or wear a bandana or other “facial covering” none of which block even what an actual mask does. In restaurants, more insanely, you are “allowed” to remove your mask while at your table, but required to wear it when walking in or out of the building. If the mask was as “vital to protecting people” as we’re told, why are we allowed to remove them at any point, the answer is simple, MASKS ARE USELESS!

The N95 Mask box literally says those masks, the ones people swear by, do NOT block any Coronavirus. This strain has a less than .5% mortality rate, which puts it on par with the flue or pneumonia for any year. However, Dr. Birx explicitly stated that “all deaths WITH covid are recorded as deaths FROM covid.” This is a blatant inflation of the numbers, for only one reason, control. I’ve told this story before, but I need to here to explain the above.

From 1997 to 1998, I was a Sheriff’s Deputy, assigned to a county jail. Ultimately, I was laid off in a reduction in force, and I’m glad of it, as my mindset is that of a firefighter, not law enforcement. However, not long after leaving them, my Doctor ran a standard Tuberculosis test, which came back positive, so he re-tested, and got negative. It was later found that I am an asymptomatic carrier of TB. I can pass it on via blood, so I’m careful when I donate to let the people taking my blood know, but beyond that, I’m healthy. So, when I die, I will die WITH TB, but very unlikely is my having died FROM TB. More people die from chemo than cancer, they just die WITH cancer. This is a major distinction, and now one that “experts” have said must be violated.

My office requires masks in common areas, but I’m allowed to remove it at my desk, proving that either they know they don’t work but “must show they are complying,” or they actually believe air won’t travel from my desk to anywhere else in the office. Add to this, at present I am alone in my office, completely, and still I must wear a mask, as I know someone may see me on camera, crossing a hallway to exit the building without my mask and I’ll be in trouble.

I’ve said this before, it is not, and never has been, about health in any way. If masks were so fool proof, inmates would have been given masks and told not to leave their cells, but they weren’t, they were released to prey on the public. Now Garcetti in LA is threatening to cut utilities to homes that have too many people in them according to him, there is already video, shown below, showing someone being manhandled in a choke hold, for not wearing mask, outside, from Australia or New Zealand, I’m not sure. Australia already has to have permits to leave their home to go to work as well, and they are severely controlled on even going for groceries.

Why is it that people are fine with this, but when it comes to drugs or abortion, it’s “my body my choice?” If masks work, why am I made to wear one? If your mask works, then it will protect you, even if I’m not wearing one right? I have asked this of people, and they, to a person, have responded one of two ways. One, they agree but “have to wear it” or they can’t go to the store. The other is “you just don’t get it, masks only block your exhaled breath, so my mask protects you, you have to protect me.” They honestly think their mask can block breath only in one direction!

We have two pandemics in the world today, neither are Covid. The first is that hundreds of thousands of children are stolen and made into sex slaves, annually, the other is of the mind, heart, and conscience. People are willing to sell their liberty for perceived, but false, security. It was said best as “those who sacrifice essential liberty for temporary security deserve neither,” I tend to add “and soon lose both” to that quote.

The video above does give me some hope, but sadly, those who see and speak the truth are in the vast minority. We are rapidly approaching the world of 1984, Fahrenheit451, or Brave New World, and none are appealing. In one you are brutally subjugated, those who buck the system “re-educated” by violence, or killed, in another you are kept ignorant, those who defy the system exiled, and in the last, you are not even born, you’re engineered, then kept drugged, any who are not party of the controlled society are kept locked in tiny reservations, “studied,” and mocked. The saddest part is that so many want any of these worlds, but if they ever happen, those clamoring for them will be wailing at we who saw the path we were on for “not stopping them” while demanding we fight to free them, and if we do, they will instantly return to hating us as they demand we serve them as slaves.

It’s well past time to wake up, or this world will fall to tyranny and worse, is that what you want?

It was never about health

For over 3 months, the US has watched as virtually everyone has been ordered to stay at home. There were areas where this didn’t happen, but those are few and far between. Mostly, it was a scale from the lax quarantine of places like Texas to the almost guarded streets of California. As people watched the <i>news</i> it was always portrayed as “flattening the curve” or “a health need,” but if that was true, why have we never done this before in anyone’s lifetime who isn’t 100 years old?

The secret is all but out, it was about crippling the economy, so that politicians who don’t like that there is now a man in the White House who isn’t beholden to them could say “see, you’re worse off, vote for us and we’ll let you go back to work.” And to prove this, the tweet below was sent but later deleted, likely by someone who has now told AOC not to admit their goals.

Truth
AOC Admits the truth

Granted, it was gone fast, but as we all know, the internet is forever, and as long as even one person grabbed an image of it, it will never die. Trust me, Beyonce is still upset a freeze frame of her won’t go away, although China figured out they can just block websites country wide.

It’s more sinister than that though, as there are long running dreams of liberals the world over, to supplant God then become gods. They are working to map the human genome so they can genetically modify anyone, and ultimately clone anyone they deem worthy of such a gift. Watch The Sixth Day, it’s not one of Arnold’s greatest movies, but it’s this very premise, and that plot should scare you.

Why this is worrying now, as opposed to “just go to your Doctor, you’ll get better” for SARS, MERS, or H1N1, and how the seasonal flu is treated, is this one has been ramped up, even to the point of not allowing Doctors to prescribe a medication with 50 years of use for respiratory viruses (Malaria) to be used now, as it was working well. Even Amy Klobuchar, who was not happy that the President repeated what some Doctors said about Hydroxychloroquine, admitted it likely saved her husband’s life. But don’t take my word for it, here’s a Texan Doctor on the subject.

Or how about a video where a doctor exposes a decades long pattern of people in research not only working on engineering viruses and other pathogens, but also working to hide their work, in some cases even causing a massive death toll, to the point where she was almost jailed, and her career and life has certainly been dragged into the sewer.

It’s very simple, so simple it’s almost a wonder people aren’t waking up to this, but it’s no wonder at all due to the decades of dumbing down education and turning public schools into indoctrination camps. I graduated High School in May of 1995, and am likely one of the last 3 or 4 graduating classes in Texas that actually learned history as it should be taught. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in December 2010, and I can tell you, it was a struggle to not be taken in by the desire of most of the professors to turn people into liberal drones.

The evidence is in plain sight, as Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) liked to say when he had no evidence, but this issue does. How long will it be until they openly demand total obedience, all rights gone, and no more elections, they just rule? I hope sincerely that I don’t see it in my life, or my nephew in his, but that day is coming. And when it does, millions upon millions of Americans will fight back, the only question then will be, who wins?

The series begins

For those who subscribe on YouTube, you’ll know I’ve been talking about a series dedicated to American History, but being me, I want to ensure I prepare. I also lost all of my notes about a while back, so I had to start over. Well, the first video is live tomorrow at 10, the 16th of June, the rest will post, for now, every Wednesday at 10. The first two are the basics of where everything began that led to the US, then it will slow down a bit as the topics become more detailed.

History is being destroyed

Whether by accident or malicious design, the history Cathedral at Notre Dame is slowly crumbling in Paris. Many are posting about how the fire is due to a renovation accident, but I can tell you that this is too soon to say.

I’ve worked as a Firefighter, and there’s a reason an investigator goes in after the building is safe, no one can tell what causes a fire until after, and then only if they are specifically skilled in finding a cause. We’ve seen houses of worship vandalized for a long time in Europe, not coincidentally, since the “refugees” began pouring in, and very recently, a woman attempted to detonate a car bomb at Notre Dame.

Pray for those fighting this fire, for those who live and/or work near it, and just for all involved.

A change to Smoke Signals

While I don’t know how many people regularly read what I post here, I am moving away from this format as I have begun posting to YouTube. The format is very similar, just a change from typing things out here to sitting in front of a camera and talking.

Personally, I prefer the new method, as it is closer to teaching, which I have done in the past, as I studied for several years to become a teacher before I found I am not likely to get that job as I don’t also coach, but that’s something I’ve spoken about already.

So, if you want to continue with me, although I will still post here from time to time, you can find me here, I look forward to seeing you there.

Be careful speaking for God

So, while I don’t use Facebook any more, other than having an account for things like Poker apps or the like, I do have an account, and saw this earlier today.

Naturally, I went back to Bible study as a child, then teen, then adult, and thought about the story of Christ feeding the multitude, and they were not “migrants.” The multitude were citizens of Judea, either Jews living in Israel, or other Roman citizens of that province, and had been following Jesus for a while, as he was teaching and ministering to them. At this point, though, Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, John the Baptist.

Matthew 14:1 is the beginning, where we learn that Herod the Tetrarch had John in prison, and did not want to kill him for fear of making him a martyr or angering the locals, but one of his birthday guest’s daughter requested it after he promised her anything. “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” (Matthew 14:8) so he did. When Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, he retreated for solitude, but the multitude followed him still. Eventually, the Disciples came to him and asked him to send them away to find food. Rather than doing so, Christ performed a miracle, feeding over 5000 with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, once again showing the power of God, and the love of God in supplying food enough for all, and more.

Naturally, when I saw this, I was concerned about a Church misleading people, as there are many instances where Christ specifically made sure to obey the law, or where things we are told are immoral or wrong, and God is used to “prove that,” were specifically ordered in the Bible. Romans 13:1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Literally saying to obey the law of the land. I personally choose not to travel to countries where the law is contrary to God’s divine laws, so that I am no subject to those laws at any point in my life. If that comes to Texas, I will follow God’s law.

Now, seeing this, I knew I couldn’t just comment and walk away, as this is a Man of God either purposely spreading this message, or at the very least, allowing someone else to use his Church sign to spread it, so I contacted him with my concerns. Matthew 18:15 tells us that we are to confront each other, and to spread this message, where they claim Christ would violate border laws, when that is not true, is lying, and thus, a sin. I didn’t get angry, I simply voiced my side of the debate, and I pray it will be resolved well, but I can’t control anyone but me.

Naturally, there are many people who still claim Christ would be opposed to the current President’s aim of building a wall on the southern border of the US, but that ignores Nehemiah 3, where Nehemiah is specifically ordered to start the reconstruction of Israel by rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. This is also specifically stated as being for the purpose of protecting the Israeli people.

So at this point the question is a very simple one, do you believe the Bible is God’s word or not. If so, then you must know that the commandments are his commandments, be those the Ten Commandments given to Moses, or those given by Christ to his Disciples. I’ll be the first to admit I backslide (ask my Mother, she’ll tell you that’s true), and that is why, when someone gets upset with me for calling something a sin, I remind them that I am a sinner too, and all they need to do is repent, ask forgiveness, and work to not sin again. None of us are perfect, and none of us will be this side of Heaven, but we can work to be a proper example of Christ while we are here, and that is what we should be doing.

I will support helping those who need help all day long, but when those people have literally marched through multiple countries, with those countries offering jobs, asylum, work visas, and more, only to say “nope, America must obey me,” those are invaders, nothing more. They chose to march to the border of a sovereign nation, to then order said nation to allow them to break the laws of that nation, and now citizens of the US are even joining them in their cries to just ignore our laws. I don’t agree with Mexico keeping Doctors Without Borders from helping, as long as DWB followed the rules in getting to the locations in question, and so on. I don’t have any trouble with Americans sending food, clothing, and more to the people now waiting as their cases are decided. I do, however, have a large bone of contention with those spreading lies. Children are not “ripped from the mother’s arms” at any point. They cannot be housed with adults, and that’s it. They are cared for, fed better than possibly any other time in their lives, and when all is said and done, they’re returned to their parents. Many, though, aren’t coming with their parents, but with strangers who are using them.

The girl in the photo above, rather than as portrayed, crying due to being alone, had been kidnapped weeks earlier by her mother, and dragged from Honduras to the US border. At no time was she separated from her mother, until she was reunited with her father, yet Time Magazine decided to get political, and spread bald faced lies about the situation. This led to protests, and more, and even now that the truth is known, it’s kept quiet as Time doesn’t want to have actually admit their lie was discovered. I personally want a society where, when a news publication/organization is found to have lied, they must give the same amount of coverage/space to their correction, such as time having to do something like this.

If they had to do this every time they were caught lying, sure, we’d see fewer and fewer stories every day, but we’d get real news again, very worth it if you ask me.

Well, my rant has gone on long enough, what do you think about all of this?

A discussion got me thinking

Just a short while ago, I began commenting on a thread about survival prepping. Now, I know you’re thinking ‘Oh great, a prepper post’ but that’s not what this is. By no definition of the word am I a ‘prepper,’ but I’m also not so naive to think nothing will ever happen to drive me away from my home. From natural disasters to EMP weapons to nuclear strike, there are any number of reasons you may be unable to live as you’re accustomed to now for even a short period of time, and that means you could suffer horribly, or just be inconvenienced, based on being prepared for it.

Now, as I said, I am by no means ‘a prepper,’ but I do know a good deal about many topics, many of them easily translatable into off grid living. The big question you want to ask yourself when considering if you could survive in an emergency situation, is what will you need to do so. The simple answers to that question are:

Food, water, shelter, heating or cooling depending on climate, medical supplies, defensive weapons, hunting/fishing supplies, just to name a few items.

These are, by no means, the only things you’ll need, but it’s a start. Think about what your auto emergency kits at Walmart or Target have in them. Flares, a thermal blanket, bandages, etc. All great things, as flares can signal people looking for you, start a fire, or even drive off predators, since wolves or bears generally don’t like fire. Add some paracord, which is almost universally 500lb test, a solar mirror, water purification straw or tablets, fish hooks, a good knife, and you’re well on your way to ensuring you’re warm, mostly dry, fed and hydrated for a long as you can be.

Some of my friends have also suggested a solar USB charger, as in all but an EMP attack, your phone could be invaluable, as it can generally find you on a map, and give directions, or just make a call that might be triangulated to find you. Naturally, in a situation like the movie Red Dawn, you’re going to want to hide and never be found, but as that’s likely such a long shot as to be laughable, it’s not a bad idea. Not to mention, if you’re traveling with small children, just having some music at night can help too.

The point of all of this is very simple, look at your environment, I’m in north Texas, someone in Colorado will need very different supplies, as would someone in Alaska. Look at where you would go in an emergency, what will you need there. What do you already know how to do and what don’t you. Once you know these things, you can add to your supplies and learn skills you need but haven’t mastered yet. Learn CPR, how to apply a tourniquet or otherwise stop bleeding, how to recognize what not to touch or eat, and so on. Even if nothing ever happens, if your water is poisoned like we saw in Michigan, you have something on hand to use. If your friend falls and gashes their leg at a park, you know how to react as someone also calls 911.

The simple message, prepare for the worst, and pray for the best, is one that isn’t a sign of paranoia to live by. You keep a spare tire or a can of Fix a Flat in your car, right? I know people who hide a $20 bill in their car, so if they run out of gas, they have money. They may never use it, but it’s there, and peace of mind is a good thing. All of this said, I am not an expert by any means. I can trap/hunt/fish and cook what I kill, I can find make a sling or stretcher if needed, I can even fight off predators, including other people, to protect myself and my family, and I know that I don’t know all I need, so I look for books and classes, and listen to others.

What would you include in a bugout bag that isn’t a firearm or ammunition? What would you put into an emergency bag that isn’t listed here?

The Blame Game

For just over two years, we’ve heard nothing but cries of despair every time Congress or the President do anything. Liberals demand that this official or that be impeached, or that they recuse themselves from this or that, or in some other way, obey the party that lost the 2016 election. This is, however, not a new phenomenon. The 2000 election saw many similar things, with Democrats asking why George W Bush wasn’t appointing more Democrats to his cabinet to “keep an eye on him.” The question really, for me, is why we must obey only one party, no matter how the election goes? The answer, surprisingly, is actually fairly simple, entitlement. For just over twenty years, the idea of hard work and earning something has been under assault and we’re very close to a time when people will openly call for someone’s arrest, or defend their act of murder, because someone “denied their right” to be given money without working. Personally, I’ve been waiting to hear about one of the “protesters” in an “anti-fascist” group defending their killing of a conservative because they were “a bot” or “assaulted them” by speaking.
The mid 1990’s is where we see the shift begin that has led us to this point. Students prior to this time were told they must work hard, must study, and if they don’t they will fail and more. Now, students were never told they’d failed, they were just told “you did your best,” or later that it’s “their truth” and they should embrace it. And today, we have high school graduates who truly believe they have rights others do not, and rights others exercise which they don’t like can “just be changed” because they want to. Look again to 2016, and the multiple calls for the Electoral College to “just be done away with,” then the reactions when they were told it would take a Constitutional Amendment, which is not likely to happen. I personally was told more than once that I should be put in jail for hate speech when I told people they can’t “just change” the Constitution. I’ve been told people would come shoot me with my own pistol for not demonizing the NRA, and even had one lie and say I’d threatened him when I reported his threat to my life to the Police. I used to pity these people, now I just ignore them, but they still exist, and are causing more harm than good to society.

I personally don’t care what you do with your life, at least not until your life starts to negatively impact mine. Look at the movement for “LGBTQ rights,” and look specifically at the “rights” they say they are being denied. Your rights are not specific to one group, they are for all American citizens, or at least were. I remember signs in multiple businesses where I grew up that said “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, at any time, with or without explanation” and no one batted an eye, yet today we’re told that you can’t refuse to serve certain groups, while business owners in those groups go on vulgar tirades and forcibly eject others from their businesses, and nothing happens. A baker, who did not refuse to sell, just to make a special order, was all but destroyed until a court finally ruled that special orders are not protected by anything, while a coffee shop owner, who was not asked to do anything special, chases Christians out of his business while spewing profanities, and nothing happens. Why? Because those in power in Washington at the time want to destroy certain actual rights, and use “rights” that don’t exist to do it, playing The Blame Game the entire time. You hear that it’s the Church’s fault that a homosexual was denied a job, not their total lack of qualifications. Others scream it’s the NRA’s fault that a criminal broke multiple laws and shot people, not the criminal who broke multiple laws. You hear it’s the evil AR-15 that caused a mass shooting, not the person using it, but you never hear about pistol or shotgun control needed, because the goal is the eventual disarming of Americans, and those doing it know they must have a scapegoat to start the ball rolling, and they’ve chose the AR-15 for that role.

It’s all very simple, they know they can’t come right out and say “ban all Christian churches” or “give up all of your guns,” as they know they’d be laughed off the stage then removed from office. If, however, they spend years demonizing what they hate, they can slowly turn a country against it as well, and then people will vote to oppress others. Tim Tebow knelt after a scoring drive to thank God as per his faith, and was all but beaten with clubs as he ran from the field to resign, but Colin Kaepernick kneels to “protest oppression” while making millions, and people cheer. Why is it OK to protest “oppression” he can’t prove, but not for someone to openly exercise their actual First Amendment rights? The answer is simple, praying shows Christians believe in a higher power than politicians, “protesting” allows politicians to become a “higher power” and “fight for equality” as they strip rights from all they can.

The only question left is where this will all end. Given their way, many politicians would have Americans taxed at levels that would make past socialist tyrants gasp in envy, to pay for “health care” that won’t work, and standing in line to hopefully get some food for the day, rather than spending their earnings as they wish. Orwell warned of a society like this in 1984, and despite his and others’ warnings, we are in a jet powered handcart to the hell they described. We’re still roughly split 50/50, with half of the country still fighting against an Orwellian state, but we’re just at a stalemate, and sadly, losing people faster than those we’re fighting to stop. Will you go quietly into the dark of Orwellian control, or will you stand and say, as Patrick Henry did so many years ago, Give me liberty or give me death? I know which I choose.

Tuesday thoughts

First off, for anyone who follows me on Twitter, you’ll have seen me say I was “literally almost repeating ‘I’m not allowed to think for you’ already” earlier. If you follow me or just check in from time to time, you’ll have guessed I work directly with clients/customers, and have for most of my working life, but something has changed. When I was in High School, and just after that, we didn’t get many, if any, “I want to talk to the manager” moments, or people saying stuff like “I’ll have you fired” or the like. Now, it’s almost daily I have someone say I was rude or unhelpful for not doing their work for them, or not being magical and just able to “make it work.” I’ve discussed this more than once, and I see the reason for this as being the coddling in education since the mid-late 1990’s. Growing up if I didn’t do my homework, my teacher called my parents and they all tried to enforce the idea that I would fail and be held back if I didn’t. No test I took, save the SAT for some reason, gave any points for just putting my name on the test. I had a teacher who gave a test where the points didn’t total 100 because there were an odd number that wouldn’t work out any way she tried. Today, students would argue they “have a right” to the points that can’t be earned by a question, but just over 20 years ago, the teacher flat out told the class “you only get the points that are missing, if you get every question right.” Basically, saying you have to get 100% to get 100%, and nobody complained, well not much anyway. Today we have students demanding free A’s or other special treatment because the teacher won’t let them goof off, saying they’re “being stifled” by being told to pay attention and do the work!

Unfortunately, this has now led us to where we have an entire generation raised on “everyone’s just as good as everyone else” or “nobody fails, you just succeed differently,” which are great messages for toddlers and Kindergarten students, where almost everything taught in school is socialization. Three to five year olds just need to learn to sit still, to interact with others politely, to mind someone who isn’t their parent, they aren’t learning much beyond that. Math class is about recognizing numbers, geometry about knowing a square from a triangle, and so on and so forth. Hell, that’s how it was when I was in Kindergarten, thirty six years ago! That’s why many schools still only do most Kindergarten classes as half day classes. They know that five year olds aren’t ready for all day at a desk and such, they’re only there to learn how to learn, not much else. First through about third or fourth grade are similar, just lessening in the similarity as the children grow. You start with simple math and such, adding on subtraction, multiplication, division, as you grow. You don’t get into reading much more than Good Night Moon until you’ve mastered a simple sentence, you don’t learn cursive writing until you’re able to write in block letters legibly, or at least that’s how it was. Today, we could all communicate in only cursive and we’d have adults unable to tell what we were saying! Those are the people demanding their “right” to this or that, and reacting as if slapped when asked why they have a right to something that no one else has a right to.

The very people who were rarely or never told no are the very people who will keep saying “I told you, I’m getting an error” and then say you’re rude when you finally snap and say “I am sorry, but I cannot just go on “getting an error,” I need to know what the error is and what you’re trying to do when you get it.” Or the people who say you lied when you tell them that a “same day” service means within 24 hours, not a calendar day, when they complain that they ordered same day service at 2358 and at 0001 it wasn’t done. We are at a crossroads, with one path continuing on the road of “nobody is ever wrong, it’s just their truth” and ultimate doom, and the other, more difficult, path being one where we force people to accept that “their truth” is not the truth, that they cannot demand the world cater to them, and that when they don’t get their way, crying and throwing fits will only land them in trouble. That path includes arresting hundreds when they riot because their candidate lost, or a group invites someone to a private function. It includes charging and prosecuting people who destroy public property or harass people because they weren’t given special treatment. And it definitely includes forcibly educating these adults as to how wrong they are on many things.

That image was, by all reports, shown at the end of a recent Big Bang Theory episode for less than 3 seconds. Chuck Lorre is known for putting something at the end of his shows, but until now, nothing as partisan or almost violent as this. In this one, Lorre all but orders God to kill all who don’t vote Democrat. This is, honestly, a bit tame by comparison, as other celebrities have actually called for violence and even murder, but it’s just more of the same from ultra liberal Hollywood. The very people who denigrate and mock people of faith for their faith, later demand God obey them and harm those they call crazy for having faith. Even in the part of that message where Lorre appears to say “If you choose to let the GOP win” he uses language you would use with a small child like saying “if you want to be a bad boy/girl and not clean your room…” as if to say he knows best and God must do as he says to.

This will, also, have a detrimental affect on the show, and those working on it, rather than just putting their name on it. Granted, from what I know, the actors, and likely most of the staff, are also very liberal, but that’s beside the point. Like ABC firing Roseanne Barr and then killing her character in the new show, people decided they would never watch again, and ABC only grudgingly admitted that it was their choice that led to this. Big Bang Theory will see the same, to some extent, as people who once watched every time it was on, now decide they won’t watch something made by a man who hates them to the core. We’ve seen this everywhere for more than two years now. Kaepernick starts kneeling during the national anthem, and viewership and ticket sales for that team, then the NFL as a whole, go way down. Starbucks announces that anyone can use either restroom, that they’ll hire “refugees” over Veterans, and that their bathrooms are, for all intents and purposes, open to homeless addicts to use to shoot up in, and their sales go down. Denny’s and Target announce that anyone who has a license to carry a firearm isn’t welcome and sales plummet. Target and Starbucks have cancelled expansion plans, while companies like Black Rifle Coffee can’t keep things in stock after people heard their philosophy of preferring to hire Veterans, and not hiring those not legally allowed to work in the country. Small, local businesses saw sales rise as chains saw the opposite, although Chick-Fil-A bucks the trend, and despite repeated demands from one liberal or another for a boycott, for the company to be wiped from the Earth, they rake in record profits due to superior food, service, and a philosophy of treating everyone the same.

Finally, the latest outrage, President Trump has hinted he may address “birthright citizenship” via Executive Order. For those who don’t know, the 14th Amendment, ratified on 9 July 1868, states “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any peson of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” It goes on to address representation and other topics, but that is what is being discussed. Naturally, we have people saying that anyone here is “subject to the jurisdiction” but that isn’t true. Being “subject to the jurisdiction” is not being held responsible under the law for your actions, it’s actually more in line with “being a subject of” such as citizens of Britain are “subjects of the Monarchy.” The United States is literally the only country on the planet where someone born of non citizens is automatically a citizen because of where they are born. Others are using dual citizenship to suggest birthright citizenship is commonplace, but ignoring that to be a dual citizen (which the US requires you to choose from at the age of 18, as non-citizens may not serve in the military or vote,) requires your parents to be citizens of the respective countries.

The 14th Amendment though, was not written to address everyone born within our borders though, but to address the newly freed slaves. Democrats at the time had already succeeded in their “separate but equal” BS, and their 3/5ths Vote idiocy, but they weren’t satisfied. They were arguing that children of slaves weren’t citizens by right, as they didn’t want them voting when they came of age, but the amendment settled it, to the dismay of the Democrats then and now, albeit for different reasons. You see, the Democrats today are watching as person after person abandons their party of hate, racism, and control, so they must replace them. Sadly, they see this and don’t think “why are they leaving, what can we do to keep them happy?” Rather, they think “they can’t leave, we have a right to rule,” and now demand that anyone and everyone be allowed to enter the country, draw benefits they’ve never contributed to funding, and vote. It’s a very simple situation, people are literally storming to our border, ignoring our Embassies and Consulates, where they should be going if they are truly seeking asylum, while demanding we “just let them in.” We know that there are mostly men in the group, not “women and children fleeing oppression,” we know that terrorists and other criminals have been found and shown to be in the group, and we know that they are not “fleeing oppression” as if they were truly oppressed in Honduras, they’d not have been allowed to just walk out. With President Trump’s move to send the Military to the border and to address birthright citizenship, the DNC is showing it’s true colors, those being that they demand obedience and subservience.

So, the ultimate question of the day is fairly simple, are you a servant or a citizen? Will you continue to support people who pray for your death, who order you to welcome those who will harm you in many ways, and who openly call you horrible and evil? Or, will you stand up and tell them you will not be ruled, you will not be controlled, and you will not give power to those who do not deserve it? Every citizen must vote for the Republic to survive, and while I will tell you I voted all GOP this election, I know I cannot force you to vote one way or the other. I can only tell you that Democrats have openly stated that, if given control of Congress, they will raise your taxes, overthrow the President by any means, open our borders to the world, and far more aimed at total control over all they can. So, it’s a vote for freedom or oppression, I know which I choose, and I will die on my feet before living on my knees.

No, you don’t have that right

How many of you have been told “Oh, we are having this conversation” or heard “how dare you” recently? Every day I see a post, see a video, or just hear someone near me utterly shocked that someone wouldn’t do what they want them to. I’m sure you’ve seen me say it, or just guessed, but the vast majority of my work experience in the last 26 years is in customer service of some sort, and TRUST ME, even in 1992, the world was barreling toward what we have today. Imagine the following scenarios/conversations and see if you can guess how they ended:

1 – Hotel front desk receives a call about a drunk causing trouble in the hotel bar from the off duty law enforcement officer providing convention security. Agent confirms the drunk is a guest, so the cop just takes the drunk to their room to sleep it off rather than ticket/arrest them. Next morning, this guest assaults the front desk when told they will not give the cop’s name, then it’s found the guest destroyed over $2000 worth of property in the room.

2 – Support rep receives a report of an error, must ask for the error 10 times before they’re told what the error is. They advise the customer it will take a few minutes to research, during which the customer repeats, almost without stopping to breathe, “I need an answer, why aren’t you helping me, what are you doing, I need this fixed, you’re just stalling, I’m going to report you” and more. After about 5 minutes, the agent states they have found the cause and gives step by step, literally mouse click by mouse click, instructions on how to resolve the issue. The customer then repeats, more than 10 times, “but I need this fixed” until the agent says, (verbatim) “I am sorry if I was not clear, but I have tested this and I am just not allowed to edit your data, you just need to use the steps I gave above and it will fix your issue

3 – Waiter takes food to a table, and is told that it’s not correct. The waiter asks what isn’t correct, only to be told “You know damn well what isn’t correct, now fix it.” Waiter is flustered as it’s not their table, so they didn’t take the order, they just delivered the food, and the manager can see this and comes over. Guest again say “this idiot knows good and damn well what he screwed up and won’t fix it.” The Manager, angrily, states that the waiter standing there red faced did not take their order, but rather a young woman, who is a foot shorter and blonde, did, so they should apologize or leave.

So, what do you think the responses were to each of these?

1 – The drunk actually sued the hotel for “allowing him to be beaten up” then tried to say he didn’t agree to video from security cameras being shown in court. The judge overruled his objection, and he lost.

2 – Customer complained about “rude” rep, only to demand the CEO of the company when told “I’ve listened to the call and you had to be asked multiple times for the error, you then berated the agent as they were testing, which they told you would take a few minutes, you then ignored direct instructions on how to resolve your issue.” That manager then advised the agent to hang up on that person if they get them again.

3 – Waiter was reported for racism, and HR actually sided with the guest saying “you could have explained you didn’t take their order a bit more gently” and didn’t understand when asked “how is saying, I’m very sorry, but I wasn’t the server that took your order, I’ll be happy to fix any issues you can point out.”

So, can you still say, for certain, we aren’t headed for a society where just breathing within 100 yards of someone can offend them and get you arrested, or shot?
