THIS IS NOT ABOUT "LIBERALS", of whom I was one for 30 years (at least a social liberal).
IT IS ABOUT "LEFTISTS", AKA "PROGRESSIVES" - WHO SHOULD BE RENAMED "DEGENERATES".
You will know them by their actions, post - election in full display, and by their plans for the rest of us.
In this despotic drive, Biden is simply there for the ride.
Meanwhile, the rest of us are working for 2022 and for 2024.
Because we learned something in school about the creation and the
nurturing of AMERICA, complete with its Original Sin and our costly and
continuing efforts to atone for it. And those of us who came from the
Old World to this New World know what they left, what they came to, and
what they built with their own hands.
The Degenerates know little or nothing of this. In fact, they know little or nothing of Anything.
let's all of us read a new book, by an immigrant who arrived here in
1985 as a Jewish refugee from Iran, knowing no English.

design of this flag, with its 13 stripes and circle of 13
stars—representing America’s original 13 colonies—is a powerful symbol
of the American Revolution and of the principles on which the
Revolution was fought.
In the words of the Declaration of
Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men
are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit
Throughout most of our nation’s history, Americans learned about and revered these ideas.
Sadly, because of the Left’s hijacking of history education in so many of our schools, this is no longer true.
Consider the 2019 controversy surrounding the Betsy Ross flag I mentioned above.
When, shortly before Independence Day, Nike announced its plans to release an athletic shoe featuring the Betsy Ross flag.
Nike spokesman Colin Kaepernick objected, condemning the flag as a symbol of racism and slavery. A social media storm followed.
Consequently, Nike announced that it was halting production of the shoe.
This controversy was trivial. But the episode points to something else…
What is NOT trivial is the attempt to spread anti-American ideology into every area of American life…
the fact that too many in positions of authority immediately retreat
when confronted by political correctness and anti-Americanism.
Kaepernick episode illustrates the problem of progressive education,
which seeks to rewrite our nation’s history and undermine the kind of
informed patriotism that is essential to preserving liberty.
Instead of learning to love America, many students today learn to hate it.
Nike shoe controversy, like the frenzy for tearing down statues that we
witnessed in so many of America’s cities last summer, is the bitter
fruit of this progressive educational agenda.
We must confront this destructive ideology with the truth about American history.
we must nurture an informed patriotism among the young if our liberty
is to be preserved. As always, liberty’s only sure defense is an

student group asked me to speak about our nation’s immigration laws at
the University of California at Berkeley, the so-called “birthplace of
the free speech movement.”
As you may have heard, my speech was
abruptly canceled because leftist thugs decided to riot and the
administration wouldn’t stick up for free speech.
Unfortunately, I’m not the only one to suffer threats and intimidation on campus. Far from it.
I point out in Resistance is Futile: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its
Collective Mind, ever since Donald Trump’s election, liberals have lost
their minds. But there’s no padded room to keep them contained!
Instead, these violent, masked lunatics have taken over college
campuses, where young Americans are turned into automaton leftists just
America’s universities are supposed to expand young
minds through free speech, debate, and robust thought. Instead, they’re
leftist indoctrination factories that punish dissenting speech and ban
views that don’t align with the socialists, communists, and Marxists
trying to hijack our country.
I fear for our future when colleges
teach our nation’s youth to harass, harangue, and harm anyone who
disagrees with them — or even anyone designated a Bad Thinker by people
who can’t think at all. Instead of a battle of ideas, they’re being
taught to do real battle — to riot in the streets with black masks and
baseball bats. What harm did all those Starbucks windows ever do to
Young conservatives on college campuses across our nation are
losing their right to free speech – and even the right to walk down the
street without getting sucker punched – because of how intolerant the
liberals have become.
But lest you think I’ve given up hope,
faithful conservative, there’s a group I trust that fights back against
this onslaught and exposes leftist bias, abuse, and indoctrination on
college campuses for all the world to see: Campus Reform.
Reform, a project of the Leadership Institute, is the single most
powerful force for campus free speech in America today. By sticking up
for conservative students and giving them the tools necessary to defend
themselves and their principles, Campus Reform provides an absolutely
essential public service.
Bottom line – Campus Reform uncovers the
liberal schemes that the mainstream media wants to keep hidden . . .
and they shut down the liberals’ indoctrination on campus after campus.
continue their vital work, Campus Reform counts on the generous support
of conservatives just like you – yes, you! – which is why I urge you to
partner with them today by making a generous gift of $25, $35, $50,
$100, or more right now.
And to sweeten the pot – when you give
$100 or more to LI’s Campus Reform, I’ll rush you a copy of my book,
Resistance is Futile. Saving young conservatives AND getting a free
book? What a deal!
But let me tell you more.
Campus Reform is run
by Morton Blackwell’s Leadership Institute. LI is one of the nation’s
most respected and powerful voices for conservative students and young
people. They’ve organized and trained a national network of 2,083
active conservative student groups at colleges all over America.
took one of the Leadership Institute’s courses myself when I was a
student. It helped me become a better editor and expose the liberals
tricks at my college, in addition to cheering me up by introducing me
to other young patriots.
Like they did for me, LI trains these
students to powerfully — and civilly! — articulate conservative
principles. Their training equips young people with the tools to stand
up for their principles when they find themselves censored, punished,
or threatened by radical faculty or students.
You see, it’s not just
media personalities like Ben Shapiro, James O’Keefe, and myself that
the liberal mob tries to run off campuses.
Campus police at the
College of DuPage in Illinois told conservative students they’d “lock
them up” for handing out copies of the U.S. Constitution. Yes, that
dangerous document that the created the greatest country ever known to
A teaching assistant at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
harassed the student president of a conservative group for recruiting
students. With a gesture from her middle finger, she shrieked
profanities at the conservative student and called her a “neo-fascist”
and “Nazi.” Charming.
At Purdue University in Indiana, a staffer
called conservatives “vile, racist idiots” and threatened to rape
pro-life students. (And you wonder why liberals prefer violence to
In all three cases, LI’s Campus Reform exposed the truth.
Armed with investigative reports from their student correspondents on
campus, Campus Reform got word out to their nationwide audience of
concerned conservatives. And they brought it to news outlets like Fox
News, Newsmax, the Blaze, and numerous talk radio shows.
Campus Reform’s exposure of the truth got results. In these cases and
many others, Campus Reform’s quick and powerful action forced
universities to change their anti-conservative policies, discipline
leftist student groups, and suspend or fire radical professors.

for their outrageous and unapologetic abuses against conservatives.
But Campus Reform’s fight to make the left see the light and feel the heat won’t be won overnight.
fight the forces of the intolerant left, stand up for free speech, and
protect conservative students who want to simply share their beliefs
without getting a black eye, Campus Reform is counting on your help.
make a generous investment of $25, $35, $50, or more today to support
the Leadership Institute’s Campus Reform, stand up to liberal
indoctrination, and ensure conservative students don’t lose their
freedoms on college campuses.
The Stalinist show-trial that
liberals tried to hold against Judge Brett Kavanaugh reveals the
disgusting depths the radical left will stoop to. And with the left
gaining political strength in the midterm elections, the suppression of
conservative free speech on campuses is only going to increase.
Friend, let’s make ‘em pay.
Please help Campus Reform right away so they can empower conservative students and strike back at the lunatic liberals.

man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face
is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs,
who comes short again and again...who knows great enthusiasms, the
great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best
knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst,

"YOU WANT THE TRUTH? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"
Well, let's see if you can handle the Truth.
What follows will go from Macro to Micro, without specific references, of which I have many - but too little time.
"EQUALITY" AND "EQUITY". America's Founders declared that "...all
men are created equal". They couldn't quite manage either that or
"equity" ("fairness or justice in dealing between persons") and also
produce "one nation" at that time. It took a tragic Civil War to add
that to our founding principles. But it was done - in Law if not
uniformly in the hearts of mankind.
That took another hundred
years...but it finally has been accomplished in the hearts and minds of
the vast majority of Americans.
That accomplishment is now being
seriously undermined by some Racists in the Black community who
actually want to bring back division between the races with
irresponsible talk about "White Supremacy" and equality of Outcome vs.
equality of Opportunity. The former requires a great deal more than
being "created equal". Try a two parent family, effective education, a
healthy life-style and a strong work ethic, for starters.
One thing is certain: THE REST OF US ARE ON YOUR SIDE! That is your "Reparations".
To implement the above, practically in action as well as "in the Law",
try Demanding Term Limits for our Federal "representatives" who now
spend many decades in office unresponsive to the will and the needs of
The People. That is especially true of the ever-more-powerful and
unelected Administrative branch of government - the Bureaucrats!
Our Black brothers have been Poorly dealt with by decades of following
the Democrats and their cynical supporters, including the "mainstream
media". Look around you. They are the reason for your problem with
"equality" and "equity".
3) "CANCEL CULTURE" is
precisely the stupid weapon that you don't want to be tried against
those who disagree. Guess who will be cancelled out first - and again.
Public Education. The curtain was pulled back on that mess a long time
ago. For reminders, check out the section on this web site entitled
"Public Education Politics". SHAME!
5) "Crime and Punishment".
Well, not really. Increasing crime and murders, especially in the Black
communities, while de-funding the police, eliminating bail, closing
prisons, ambushing individual officers. NOT SMART!
Immigration "Reform" with puppet Biden. Instead of flooding the country
with new illegals - with all of their unavoidable baggage - why not
take care of the Dreamers already here, and the existing illegals who
have conducted themselves well for many years? Too "Loglcal"? Not
"political" enough? "STUPIDO. STUPIDO. STUPIDO".
Wages, Public Health...vs another few decades of unearned subsidies
laden with counter-productive rules especially for the deluded
recipients. Let's really talk about a "living wage". The current
"Poverty Level" is about $12,000. for an individual and about $25,000.

minimum wage of $15. / hour, not burdened with a Christmas tree of

many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the
person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel
faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be
deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the

about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the
heart is felt to be beating normally again.

get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the
heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on
the heart also helps it to regain a normal rhythm.
In this way, heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.

were growing up? We didn’t have fast food when I was growing up I
informed him. C’mon seriously
All the food was slow .'
Where did you eat?'
'It was a place called 'home,' I explained!
cooked every day and when Dad got home from work,we sat down together
at the dining room table, & if I didn't like what she put on my
plate, I was allowed to sit there until I did like it .'
this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to
suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how
I had to have permission to leave the table.
Here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it:
parents NEVER owned their own house, wore Levis, set foot on a golf
course, traveled out of the country or had a credit card.
My parents never drove me to school. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow) .
didn't have a television in our house until I was 13. It was, of
course, black and white, and the station went off the air at 11, after
playing the national anthem and a poem about God. It came back on the
air at about 6 a.m. And there was usually a locally produced news and
farm show on, featuring local people ...
had a telephone in my room. The only phone was on a party line. Before
you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't
know weren't already using the line.
Pizzas were not delivered to our home... But milk was & so was bread .
newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered
newspapers -- my brother delivered a newspaper, six days a
week. He had to get up at 5 AM every morning .
Movie stars kissed
with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the movies! There were no
movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone
to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or most anything
If you grew up in a generation before
there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with
your children or grandchildren. Just don't blame me if they bust their
Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it ?
Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and
he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a
stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was,
but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a
salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end
of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have
steam irons. Man, I am old .
How many do you remember ?
Head lights dimmer switches on the floor .
Ignition switches on the dashboard .
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards .
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner .
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals .
Older Than Dirt Quiz :
Count all the ones that you remember , NOT the ones you were told about !
Ratings at the bottom .
1. Candy cigarettes
2. Coffee shops with tableside juke boxes
3. Home milk delivery in glass bottles
4. Party lines on the telephones
5. Newsreels before the movie
TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were
there until TV shows started again in the morning. (there were only 3
channels!! If you had a TV!!
8. Howdy Doody
9. 45 RPM records
10. 78 rpm records
11. Hi-fi records 33 1/3 rpm
12. Metal ice trays with lever
13. Blue flashbulb
14. Cork popguns
16. Wash tub wringers
If you remembered 0-3 = You're still young
If you remembered 3-6 = You are getting older
If you remembered 7-10 = Don't tell your age, &
If you remembered 11-16 = You're older than dirt !!! THAT'S ME !!!
I might be older than dirt but those memories are some of the best parts of my life.

"WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT, ALFIE?"
That's the question that most Americans are waking up to today.
The more well-read among us might be tempted to quote William Shakespeare:
"'Tis a tale as told by an idiot, full of sound a fury, signifying nothing".
But that would be wrong.
of the last six months have been very significant. What could be more
important to a democracy than the integrity of its election process -
at all levels but especially at the national level?
predicted by many while voting processes easily subject to fraud on a
grand scale were "officially" but illegally adopted, Americans awoke on
November 4 to an ILLEGITIMATE ELECTION RESULT in the eyes of nearly 74
Challenges to those results were attempted
but were thwarted in similarly suspect fashion. Calls arose for a
proper Federal Investigation of the entire process - but were met with
"Sit Down And Shut Up".
The nation was developing an ugly mood and was beginning down a
dangerous path. In fact, a recent Zogby poll found that nearly 50% of
those polled voted Yes or Likely Yes to the question:
"Will The U.S. Have Another Civil War?" Look it up.
that stew came November 6 and a pre-planned march on Washington. The
President reminded them of why there were there and suggested that they
make their voices heard...PEACEFULLY.
As we all know, that did
not happen. But in fact that may have been precisely the safety valve
that opened to reduce the building national pressure for more action:
an unfortunate but effective venting.
I believe that now the
vast majority of election deniers will have been sufficiently cautioned
to wait for and work for the 2022 and 2024 elections - when I predict
that the despotic Leftists and their "liberal" fellow travelers will
handily lose both the House and the Senate. The One Thing We Will
Not Do is Forget!
And now a side-bar about Mitch McConnell.
There was a Venting in spades by an excellent legislator who knocked
himself out for four years very effectively implementing the actions of
his President - only to see his President clumsily lose the Georgia
senatorial elections - and condemn McConnell to having to deal with
No Wonder that he totally lost his famous Cool.
again: I believe that we have now dodged the literal bullet of broad
insurrection and even civil war - a Very Good Thing. SEE YOU AT
FRIDAY and SATURDAY, February 12 and 13, 2021
My days on earth are numbered; But before I fade away,
there is something important I need to say. It may not be
important to anyone else; but it's important to me.
Win, lose or fraud...President Trump. I just want to say
thank you for the last four years.
Thank you for making it cool to be an American again.
Thank you for showing us that we don’t need to be under
China’s thumb anymore economically, or any other way.
Thank you for one of the strongest economies we’ve ever
experienced in my lifetime. Thank you for all you have
done for the minority communities, and the outstanding
decrease in the unemployment rate you had.
Thank you for making it feel good to love our country
and to be a proud patriot again. Thank you for supporting
our Nation's flag and the men and women who fought
for the freedom that stands behind that flag.
Thank you for supporting our nation's law enforcement
organizations, and understanding how difficult their job
Thank you for quelling the flood of illegal immigration,
and bringing to justice the thousands of criminals that
flood brought us.
Thank you for giving corporations a reason to come
back to America to make our own products and put
Americans back to work.
Thank you for bringing our troops home from endless
deployments that presented us with little more than body
bags; and for your commitment to strengthen our military.
Thank you for operation warp speed and keeping your
promise to bringing the Covid 19 vaccine to us in less
than a year.
Thank you for your never-ending attempts at bringing
peace to the Middle East and your support for Israel.
Thank you for your Tax relief, and thank you for our
Most of all though...
THANK YOU for taking a damn rotten job that you
never had to take!!
Thank you for caring enough for this country to
want to try and make a difference.
Thank you for showing America how little Career
Politicians actually work for their constituents; and
for showing us how much those politicians despise
you for showing America how easy it is to build a
great nation, rather than rape her to line their own
pockets and stock portfolios.
Thank you for allowing us to experience a President
that wasn’t a lifelong politician, but a lifelong American.
THANK YOU MR PRESIDENT..... YOU DID YOUR BEST...

A SHOW TRIAL WORTHY OF RUSSIA OR CHINA OR ANY OTHER TOTALITARIAN NATION.
No Chief Justice, NO Impeachment
Today is Day 3 of the radical Left’s unconstitutional impeachment trial of a former President – a PRIVATE CITIZEN.
radical Left is using this to directly attack conservatives. We just
submitted our legal analysis to the Senate to defend the Constitution:
- The Constitution provides for the impeachment of “The President,” not a former President. (Art. II, Sec. 4)
- You can’t impeach a private citizen – legally, that amounts to an unconstitutional bill of attainder. (Art. I, Sec. 9)
Chief Justice of the United States isn’t serving as the presiding
officer – something the Constitution requires: “When the President of
the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside.”
(Art. I, Sec. 3)
is clearly an unconstitutional impeachment trial. It’s a political
revenge trial. And it will only serve to further divide – not unite –
We cannot allow the radical Left to cheapen impeachment and shred the Constitution.
senior leadership of the ACLJ’s legal team has more experience with
impeachment than anyone else. We’re mobilizing on Capitol Hill to
defend the Constitution. Send a powerful message to the Senate: End
this unconstitutional impeachment trial. Take action with us.Sign Our URGENT Petition: Stop Unconstitutional Impeachment.

WHETHER IN SCIENCE (RARELY) OR IN ACADEMIA (OCCASIONALLY) OR IN POLITICS (COMMONLY),
people prostitute themselves for short-term gains over long-term principle.
Only in Politics are they rewarded for it.
This is what is going on this week at the "impeachment" theatre.
What an Outrage! Worse: What a Shame.
Not Professor Alan Dershowitz.

And I don't want to spoil it. But it begs the question:
You have read my answer offered numerous times in this section, relating to the generations that have followed the
Now comes the book "BOOMERS: The Men And Women Who Promised Freedom And Delivered Disaster",
by Helen Andrews, herself a Millennial who finds plenty of fault in her Woke - but not awakened - cohorts.
Must it take a War or Armageddon to produce another "Greatest" or "Silent" generation...for at least a short time?
This may be the last time you’ll ever see something like this at an NFL game.
this doesn't light your patriotic fire then I suppose your wood is
wet It is sad commentary on how far we have deteriorated in
14 years. There is a definite difference today with the singing
of THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER. These days you have a rock
star, sexy women with revealing dresses, strange musical
variations...where are we going from here the next 13 years? Super Bowl

Been quite a change since then, hasn’t there?Super Bowl 14 Years Ago
A VERY IMPORTANT DISCUSSION ABOUT OUR FUTURE WITH COVID-19.
Will "the Perfect be the Enemy of the Good"?
That can happen here. Remember: Everything In Life Is A Risk-To-Benefit analysis and choice.
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
And Stay Tuned.
3 DAYS IN office and here's what you get!
- A loss of 57,000 jobs in oil.
- Ended energy independence for the United States.
- Canada and Texas are suing Biden.
- Antifa (just an idea right), continues to riot and burn down Portland and Seattle.
Sent our troops that were in DC to sleep on the floor of a parking
garage, in freezing temps, with cars parked there and one bathroom. But
the WH made them cookies.
- Created a new glass ceiling for girls
to hurdle, ruining so many chances for scholarships with his
"progressive" transgender programs allowing boys to compete against
girls. And allows them into their bathrooms.
- Created a new federal property mask mandate, which he broke countless times already.
- Is now allowing illegal immigrants to be counted for representation in congress.
- A complete halt on student loan forgiveness that he promised.
- A complete halt on the $2000 stimulus program he promised.
- He shot down a Trump admin order to lower the cost of insulin.
- He shot down a Trump admin order to lower the cost of epinephrine.
- Rescinds Trump order banning Chinese Communist involvement in US power grid
- $1.6 billion in gross wages lost.
JUST TODAY - 8 Chinese bombers, 4 fighters, and 1 sub-hunter just
breached Taiwan's Air Defense Identification Zone, crossing the Taiwan
Everything they've done in THREE DAYS has benefitted other countries and hurt Americans.
But HEY, at least Biden hasn't tweeted mean words. And, we have a woman Vice President.

A BLAST FROM THE PAST...AND A MUCH BETTER TIME FOR AMERICA.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY, February 6 and 7, 2021
MY GOAL: "BE WHO GOD MEANT YOU TO BE, AND YOU WILL SET THE WORLD ON FIRE".
(St. Catherine of Siena).
That is my goal, although right now I'm having trouble striking a spark.
Nevertheless, I continue to try.
More to come...always more.

those who refuse the COVID-19 Vaccine?". My reply: NOTHING. THEY OWE
US. And we should collect.
- "Policing in America Must
Change". "Yea, But..." First and foremost, Respect the
Badge! Try obeying the Law, for a change. Then try the following:1)
Don't show any weapon; just reveal it verbally; 2) Police should have
better ways to immobilize a resisting suspect needing to be taken into
custody...like needle tranquilizers; 3) Police should be better
marksmen, with training in "muscle memory"; the human body presents a
lot of targets that can STOP; 4) And most importantly: DISCARD THE
"BLUE LINE" FOR THE "RED LINE" FOR NOGOODNIKS, ENFORCED BY THE POLICE
- The Second Amendment is VITAL to the endurance of
the "Republic for which it stands". The Founders knew what they were
doing, given their recent experience and their knowledge of human
nature. And as the armaments of Government increase, so must those of
the citizenry - for self-defense from Government.
- We must
continue to be a Representative Republic...Not a democracy. But our
representatives must be limited in how much they can spend on their
elections, how much they can earn and obtain from their positions, and
how long they can remain in office.
- Big Business and its march to the Left: BEWARE.
CATHOLICISM": neither "liberal" nor catholic/universal, especially when
it abandons any and all human beings from the moment of conception.
This is the second time in my life that I have been personally
scandalized. And giving Scandal is a Sin, whether by layman or

"RES IPSA LOQUITUR"
"The thing speaks for itself."
Today, we’re filing our FIRST major lawsuit against the Biden Administration.
Eric Swalwell – who was one of the lead agitators in the first
impeachment and is now an impeachment manager – was found to have a
direct connection with a Chinese Communist spy right around the time he
was named to the House Intelligence Committee.
He had access to
more classified information than almost any other Member of Congress,
and he pushed a Russia Hoax while being COMPROMISED by the Chinese.
We took action to expose this, but already the Deep State is refusing to turn over key documents.
spent years warning you about the Deep State’s shredding of the
Constitution. Now the Deep State bureaucracy is being further empowered
by President Biden to undermine everything we’ve fought for.
we are filing a major lawsuit against Biden’s FBI, NSA, Office of the
Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), and State Department – the
entire alphabet soup of Deep State corruption we’ve been beating in
court for years.

SO HERE WE NOW HAVE THE "BIDEN ADMINISTRATION",
Illegitimate in the eyes of many tens of millions unless or until an Independent investigation of the election is done.
But meanwhile IT IS HERE.
So let's look into the secured windows of this asylum.
The only question is whether Biden is its Leader...or its captive...or its inmate.
THE SHUTTERED SCHOOLS, ITS CAPTIVE OR SELF-CENTERED TEACHERS, AND THEIR DAMAGED STUDENTS.
Biden administration purports to "follow the science"...but it really
just kowtows to the teachers' unions. Meanwhile, Catholic schools are
showing how it is done; and they are gaining new fans daily. See the
related article in WSJ February 2, 2021, pA15.
IDIOTS AND IDIOCY.
The Economy: excessive Stimulus, excessive debt, increasing vulnerability internally and internationally (read CHINA).
so far, No Good: Immigration Policy; Border Security; Retaining troops
in the Far East; Suggesting in Any way that Taiwan is negotiable;
prodding the Russian bear; Any accommodation to Iran;
Attacks on our Constitution, especially on the First Amendment, by government or by "private" monopolistic Tech giants.
Centralized, Totalitarian Government,
ruling by Executive Order and a run-away bureaucracy instead of a
Representative Government - so long as the representatives can be
properly chosen by the People...and can be properly sent home with term
limits for all.
Biden and the Schism in Catholi-Schism. Pro-Abortion Biden is No Catholic, despite his efforts and the scandalous actions of some "clergy".
OUR BLACK BRETHREN NEED PROTECTION FROM THEIR "LEADERS" AND FROM THEIR DEMOCRAT HANDLERS.

It had better be Soon - and Massively.

vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same.
have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at
people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with
opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well
have entered the Twilight Zone. You can't justify this insanity. We
have become a nation that has lost its collective mind.
We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans.
people are held responsible for things that happened before they were
born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing
Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.
People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but
it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it.
People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go
through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who
jump the southern fence are welcomed.
$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists".

wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good
is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing
innocent babies is right.
