  • Yoda offers a bit of wisdom here about rushing to judgement.

    “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” and

     “In a dark place we find oursel […]

    • YES….I completely agree. I am all about police reform but this is going a bit too far.
      Are they looking for a volunteer force like Volunteer Fire Departments like we have in the back countries? That would be taking a few steps backwards.
      It irks me when people paint everyone with a broad stroke. Not all police officers are bad apples. MOST are not.

    • I would not want to live in America if there were not any police. Bad people would have room to torture the rest of us with their selfish crimes. I do think they need to have more training to prevent deaths in the line of duty. The Black Lives Matter movement has created more racism in the whole history of America. I do not see race, people all bleed red blood.

  • Twitter is not fact checking anyone – they are reminding people to not take anything as fact – to research a bit.  The sad thing about this, is that there are people who have to be reminded that what is put on t […]

    • sorry….above, I realized that I have some wrong words….in my haste, that is often something I am prone to. However, I tried to update it but couldn’t and thought I would delete and re-enter, but it only deleted from the feed not from here…. 🙂

      Obviously there are things I still need to learn how to do, and one of them is update a comment.

    • Hi Olen, YES….I kept reading what twitter did and read what Trump said and the dots did not connect. It almost reminded me of the Lady in Central Park……the bird watcher politely asked her to leash her dog and she called 911 and cried bloody murder. (Ok…I exaggerated that a bit) But from what I kept reading there isn’t much Trump could do and just like an article I read….it all turned out to be theatrics. And he knows his base always falls for his theatrics.

      I don’t facebook because of Zuckerberg……and have enjoyed Twitter. And I think I will enjoy Twitter even more so now 😉

  • We cannot afford to let this man Trump become the dictator that he would like to be.  He has been slowly, but been successfully filling judgeships with his loyal candidates, so that when cases not to his liking […]

    • There was a time I could say I hated no one, I had a huge dislike for some, but not hate. Trump and his entire family…I hate. I hate them, i hate all they stand for, and all they do. When a man in power, puts the almighty dollar in front of the health and welfare of the country he swore to protect, he’s evil, and he has no morals whatsoever.

    • I couldn’t agree with this post any more. trump has managed to make our country a laughing and is currently endangering American lives. There are those who still support him, but some of them are showing themselves to be people who want to use guns and violence to force their agenda on the rest of us. We need to save our country or we are lost. I truly believe that.

  • “Mama, don’t let your babies
    grow up ‘in a society of
    self-fulfillment, autonomy, and privacy as ideals”.

    Instead, instill them with
    ideals like “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can d […]

  • Just listen to and follow the
    health expert directives.  Believe that
    the science and health professionals and workers will get us through this.

    I guess I will have to take my share of blame for what we have […]

    • I refuse to follow trump’s advice on anything unless it is borne out by actual research. So when he says “hydroxychloroquine” is a good drug for it, I immediately realized no way unless a doctor that I trust, and I don’t mean Dr Phil or Dr Drew, recommends it. And at this point if my personal doctor said that was one of the preventives, I would question him very strongly as to why he was saying that.

      Never trust a politician with a political interest in a particular outcome to tell you medical advice. He wants us to open the entire nation despite the continued spread of this visit by about 20,000 a day with 1000 or so deaths on most days. (sometimes it goes down to 800 and then the next day we hear about 1200, but 1000 is a good average. As long as that is the case, the pandemic is NOT over.

  • America, let’s turn this vehicle around and get back on the road to greatness! We need more loyal Americans working there and we need more free press not less.

    Yes, we were great for about 299 years and we a […]


    fellow patriotic Americans.  I suggest reading “Washington’s Farewell
    Address”, “1984”, “Farenhiet 451” – in that order – to better understand my
    reas […]
