Let’s Stop Being So Afraid And Let The Squirrels Keep Their Nuts !

“A wise woman once said, “there’s nothing to fear but fear itself… And of course the bogeyman.”

And if you listen to the political pundits, online personalities and “alternative news” there is nothing scarier than the current political climate.

According to them we are on the verge of an apocalypse like the world has never seen.

We are all going to be groveling in the streets fighting squirrels for nuts.

There will be no jobs, healthcare, industry, nothing but a complete collapse of life as we know it.

We are all doomed, and the end is indeed nigh . . . IF we listen to them.

My question is – WHY are we listening to them? Their trade is fear and the pushing of it. The more afraid we are, the more they profit.

News is a money making industry and if it bleeds, it leads. Right now they’re doing their best to make sure it’s hemorrhaging.

To the point – Bob Woodward is currently writing a book titled: Fear Trump in the White House, which is being released on September 11th. – a day that all of us of a certain age lived out in fear and horror.

This my friend is no coincidence. Its strategically playing on all of our fears .. and for a profit.. the profit going to the author.

They use buzzwords like “Nazi, white supremacist, alt left, socialist, alt right” just to name a few.

And to what end? To drive that fear right into our homes and minds.

Ive seen people Ive known for years and people whom I love being driven half crazy by it. They eat, drink and live politics and hate, and no attempts to divert them to another subject is successful. Ive seen it bust up friendships and even tear families apart.

Is the current political landscape bad? Yes, but is it truly as bad as they would  lead us to believe?

This country has survived truly hard times before… the Great Depression, The Gas Wars, Assassination of President Kennedy, 911.. just to name a few.. so why is it that we believe we cant or won’t survive now?

It’s because we are being told we wont – and like good little sheeple – we are stupidly believing it.

I too have found myself glued to the television or internet reading all the doom and gloom. Then I made a decision to take back my right to make up my own mind about it all, and STOP allowing others who have their own personal agenda to make it up for me.

This brings me to all of you, dear readers –

I have a challenge to everyone reading this and to everyone I know. . . STOP!

Stop reading everything political. Just for 1 week. Go out into the world and refuse to hear it or talk about it.

Talk about and read positive things.. they are still out there. When the week is over, ask yourself – do I feel better about the current situations? The world as a whole? You don’t have to tell me, or anyone for that matter what you found or how you feel after this week, but I have a feeling it will be a lot better . . . about everything.

I’m not trying to pretend we don’t have problems, but we exacerbate them and the way we approach or live through them by dwelling in the negative.

Let’s stop dwelling in the negative and remember the times we came together as a proud nation and refused to allow our fears to take us over and keep us down.

Why are we afraid?

We are so much better than what we are being fed by the talking heads.

We must remember this, and stop allowing them into brainwashing us in to thinking otherwise.

Twitter User Calls For The Assassination of President Trump – Twitter Fails To Act

It’s fairly well known that Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Twitter has a huge problem with Trump, his supporters and pretty much anything that does not endorse the sentiments of the extreme left.

In the past the social media platform has been exposed as not enforcing their Terms of Service equally, and it’s engineers have been exposed as using algorithms to censor any account they deem right-wing. 

If you use Twitter, you have to accept the fact that Jack and his engineer’s don’t play by their own rules. This includes tweets calling for the assassination of The President of the United States.

This tweet has been reported numerous times not only by myself but by many others since it was made on June 24, 2018.

As of this writing it is still up for all to see. This isn’t the only tweet of this nature, its just one of the latest.

More tweets exist with same sentiment –

If by some horrible chance someone acts on the suggestion of the person that tweeted this, it is my opinion that they as well as the whole of Twitter be somehow held legally responsible. By not removing this tweet and the user they are, in my opinion endorsing the sentiment.

It doesn’t matter if you are a Trump supporter or not, this kind of behavior especially in our current political climate should be condemned by all, and yes I would say the same thing if it had been said about any of the other candidates/players.

UPDATE:
The above tweet has been removed by the author, Dean Anthony Gratton, whose Twitter account is still active. It does not however seem to have come at Twitter’s instructions as I didn’t receive notice from Twitter (per my reporting the tweet) that it was found in violation.

Therefore the question remains – Why is Jack Dorsey and Twitter endorsing the assassination of our president and allowing the hashtag, #AssassinateTrump to remain up and active on his platform?

Mike Brown: Trading One Stereotype For Another

Holly Briley Recently film director, Jason Pollock released what some are calling a “highly edited” video from his documentary, Stranger Fruit that retraces the events of the 2014 shooting of Mike Brown.

In this video Pollock alledges Brown gives the store employee a bag of pot for the Cigarillo’s he was previously said to have stolen. Pollock also alledges this was part of a pre negotiated negotiated deal.

 

Jay Kanzler, the attorney for the convenience, who also happened to be in the convenience store when a new rash of protesting and gunfire broke out, disputes the events in the video, and goes on to state they have nothing to do with Brown’s later visit to the store.

Mr. Kanzler recently gave a press conference and during it released the unedited version of the tape in question, taking the watcher step-by-step through it.

 

In the end the questions remain:

1) Was Mike Brown simply carrying out a drug deal and not committing strong arm robbery?
2) Why does it even matter as the events in the store had nothing to do with his death?
3) And most importantly in my opinion –
Why are so many people willingly trading one stereotype of young black men for another one that is equally stereotypical?

 

Small Children Interrupt Father’s On Air Video And I’m Just A Little Bit Pissed Off About It

By now you’ve probably seen the video of Professor Robert Kelly’s on-air interview with the BBC that he was doing from his home. If not, see video in question below.


Copyright 2017 Raycom News Network. All rights reserved.

I’m not pissed off about or at the children interrupting him. Children will be children and anyone who has ever raised one or been around one for any length of time knows a closed unlocked door is an invitation to open to see what’s going on inside. To be perfectly honest, they were probably the most entertaining thing about the video. I’m not even really pissed about the way he tried to push his daughter back while she was standing beside him.

What I am pissed off about is the lack of outrage from pussyhat wearing SJWs for the wife who had to come in practically on her knees, wrangle up the children, and walk backwards out the door children in tow all while bowed down.

Where are you SJWs? Where are your screams about Patriarchy, Misogyny?

Ashley . . .Cher . . . anyone??

Where is Lena Dunham ripping off her clothes and eating rice pudding on the toilet in protest?!

Shouldn’t  Samantha Bee be chiming in right about now about how the dad has “Nazi hair?”

My God! Shouldn’t we be organizing a march or something!!

This brings me to why I’m just a little pissed . . . all of the “outrage” we’ve seen as of late from self titled feminist is nothing but manufactured. Manufactured for personal gain, to reignite failing careers or simply to pitch a public fit because they didn’t get their way on November 8, 2016.

If it were anything but, we’d be seeing more than one person blogging about the “outrage” of it all.

Again, I ask – Where Is The Outrage?!!!!

*Side Note to Professor Kelly: Locks. Get one and use it.
