Who are your friends?
It’s a question that should be asked again, now the Internet is underway and mankind has morphed around its powers, twisting bodies into huddled, comfortable little blobs that love to interconnect by cyberchat. Who are we connecting with?
Now we don’t, though, just align with people on the Internet, we align with groups, causes. And even though a world of information is immediately available, we don’t need more than a meme to make important choices. Continue reading “How the Internet Twists Reality”
One-time Governor candidate Kari Lake roused supporters and discussed her election, during a “Save Arizona” rally Sunday night at the Orange Tree Golf Club in Scottsdale.
Wearing a red dress and sans podium, Lake spoke before a full house of several hundred supporters with just a microphone. The evening felt intimate, sometimes awkward, and far from rowdy, though Lake isn’t shy to speak her mind. At times it felt like the former news reporter is over her head, pressing issues that have been fumbled by the best, but willfully and fearlessly like there’s no tomorrow.
“I am not backing down, not one damn inch! We have amazing attorneys. One is an army veteran and one is a former Navy Seal! Those guys have a steel spine and they’re not afraid of anything and they’re patriots, and I thank God for them every day.” Continue reading “A Sunday Night with Kari Lake”
A new article published by a website for women takes gaslighting to a new level, adding layer upon layer of blame while sounding like they’re spewing holy water upon those lucky enough to be reading.
The article, “They knew: why didn’t the unvaccinated do more to warn us?” appears today on the site iqfy.com, with no author or date. It’s a hugely controversial take on vaccines and health, aiming blame at the unvaccinated for “not warning us.” The comment section, when I viewed the article, Jan. 25, 2022 at 12:20 AM, went on forever, until admins turned off commenting completely.
Comments criticizing them for not listening.
What follows is a reprint of the article, and the comments.
Because the Internet is forever.
This article’s history points to someone named Alessandro Siani from the University of Portsmouth as its possible author. The site, while filled with lots of important-sounding words, is all fluffy pieces, Continue reading “Turning Laziness into Blame for Vaccine Jabs, While Mastering Ignorance”
I didn’t make this video, and don’t have much to say about it. It’s a funny video that focuses on a deadly issue. Comedy about illness.
That may sound bad, but it’s not.
As social creatures, humans listen gladly to jokes, and often derive meaning from them. It can be a way to really send home a message. This video, “It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Genocide,” is the modern version of a radio hit from the 60’s, the “I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-to-Die Rag,” which protested the war in Vietnam with lines like “Be the first one on the block to have your boy come home in a box!” Continue reading “It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Genocide”
The overturning of Roe vs. Wade has had a powerful effect on elections held since, with stubborn, naive voters isolating an issue they don’t understand, posing as virtuous, in favor of “women’s rights.”
Imagine, had the federal government, instead of giving up authority (as was appropriate), decided to impose strict limits on abortion nationwide, the public posers on this issue would have less freedom, less rights and less accessibility to change what they disagree with. With states being in charge, if a state imposed limits you disagree with, you have much better accessibility and voice to express your feelings and effect change. This is basic to all legislation in the US that doesn’t deal with international matters – it was simply an oddball Roe existed in the first place, and it was appropriate to change Continue reading “Following the Fiddler to the Voting Booth”
I don’t think people really absorb the concept of 1.7 trillion dollars. It’s way too much for helping other countries while we have plenty of real issues at home. Congress this week passed a four-THOUSAND-page, $1,700,000,000,000.00 bill that one congressman voting “yay” admitted he didn’t read, and many said they weren’t given time to read, as it was purposefully pushed through too quickly by Nancy Pelosi as a deliberate swan song “crunch” in the few remaining days before Christmas. Despite there is no accountability, no logic, and we can not afford it. Whatever it is. At four-thousand pages, it would take weeks to scrutinize. Congress no longer bothers. They have interns read these novels, then fill them in.
US government is spending to support border security in countries on the other side of the globe, while millions of illegal aliens have entered unhindered through our southern border, an “issue” that either doesn’t exist (depending on how gullible you are), or is “under control,” Continue reading “The Monster That Is Government Spending”
What would a liberal do if the US government took away everyone’s guns, but the criminals all kept their illegal guns, and crime went on a surge? After all, it makes perfect sense.
Do people live in logical blindness?
It’s human nature to ignore, deflect and deny. Missing ingredients that would promote better logical thinking include open-minded discussion and less wishful thinking gone wild. In a world where everyone gets a trophy, wishful thinking and logic are on a collision course!

Have Republican voters been disenfranchised?
Many observers of races in Pennsylvania and Arizona would say yes, suspecting widespread organized cheating by Democrat government officials. If Democrats are cheating, one might say Republican voters have been ripped off, some standing in line for hours to vote for Kari Lake, only to finally give up when they were told all the machines were broken and they had to wait MORE hours. Votes that disappear while you’re watching the count – happens only to the GOP candidate, a phenomenon that started with the Biden vs. Trump election.
The come-from-behind-win after days, even weeks of “counting” never goes to a Republican.
Disappearing votes seems to be a clear ripoff, and the opposite of the traditional election-season advice “every vote counts!” They’ll tell us a single vote could make a difference, then in Arizona officials admitted Continue reading “The New Twitter: Who are the Real Losers?”
If all the other kids decided to jump in a lake, would you?
This question has a new life. A new beginning!
It’s a pertinent question amidst today’s language confusion. While rogue citizens continually make adjustments to our language, and we politely follow along, what they’re changing isn’t random at all.
The most glaringly obvious example: Sex.
Sex is a biological attribute. One definition: “two main categories (male and female) into which humans and most other living things are divided.” The “Canadian Institutes of Health Research“ tells us “‘sex’ and ‘gender’ are often used interchangeably, despite having different meanings.” But for some reason, starting 10-15 years-ago, schools and teachers began to adopt new rules, as if afraid of the word “sex.” Continue reading “Compassion for Tradition”
What’s a good thinking world citizen to conclude, when a recent FTX funds scandal points to money laundering through Ukraine to benefit US politicians, at a time when Americans are wondering why we’re sending billions of dollars to Ukraine; why we’re involved at all?
You’re about to see how a good narrative … falls apart!
If it’s a fake narrative. I suspect this one is the kind strewn together on-the-fly. The whole war, but particularly the picture drawn for us, the impression made for our benefit. Vladimir Putin is evil. Why? I’m not sure. Trump got along with him well enough it seemed things were under control. But now he’s the bad guy, as if everyone already knew it, and why? Continue reading “Putin Kicks LGBTQ Butt”
Time to bang a drum that makes no noise, beating my potential meaningfulness into the void we call mankind.
Hello Miss Understanding!
You are hereby exonerated for all the things you have done wrong.
After all, you didn’t know, and it’s not fair. Simple as that!
It’s not fair you didn’t know your child won’t be safe on the streets, with disrespected police quitting every day, nor in their schools, where creepy pervs may prey on them, courtesy of Democrats you voted for.
But you spoke for women’s rights!
Maybe. Maybe you didn’t. It’s hard to know.
Real Issues Were Never Important
It’s not that people don’t understand the issues.
In fact, people do even better; they under-understand the issues!
Thus, we get votes Continue reading “You Can’t Handle The Truth!”

Midterm Elections 2022
Today’s article is best enjoyed on election day morning with a bowl of uterus-shaped breakfast cereal. This new product is a symbol of unabashed progressive boldness, and will create a perfect setting for election research.
Now I’ve got your attention, let’s talk! The cereal is real; it’s available in Sweden.
It’s not too late to brush up your election knowledge with this article, intended to put things in perspective. It’s up to you to decide, not Democrat or Republican, but to decide what this election is about, what it’s for! Is it about stigmas, reparations and unexplainable swells in racism? Or, an exercise in understanding a cluttered landscape and fixing problems in government via change?
For some of us, this moment couldn’t have felt farther away. Up for grabs is the peace of mind that comes with knowing elections are secure; however I don’t expect we’ll win that victory. We might have to settle for Continue reading “Never Forget (Election Primer for the Nearly Aware) – It’s Time to Take Your Shot!”
The truth matters!
But my friends are confused!
Yes, they’re my friends. After all, they’re on Facebook, and it says they’re my friends! But I’m not sure what they think about me after today. The problem seems to be the truth. It’s a buzzkill.
Everyone was having so much fun until I showed up.
There was a post on Facebook, my favorite colloquial sandbox. Most of us have split up into groups, so we can talk about blueberries without being hassled by the raspberry people. But it’s a week before elections, and some of the fun has landed right on the public feed, right in the middle of Ye Ole Facebook Town Square.
I wasn’t afraid.
I don’t know the candidate. His name is Seth. He seems okay. He’s unaffiliated. He has a child in school Continue reading “The Truth is, The Truth Doesn’t Matter At All”
