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.

Hillary’s New Life After White House Loss. . . Losing Ain’t Pretty

Still trying to make Hillary happen, The Hill ran a piece about how she is “coming to terms with her new life.”

The article was pretty much a re-hash of what we’ve been hearing since she lost the election, but the picture they ran on Twitter linking to the article . . . .

. . . pretty much says it all.  Pretty much.

One can only imagine what they really think about their new lives. Their new 24/7 constantly together “new lives.” The lives that are now so polar opposite of the one they thought they’d have with Hillary in The Oval and Bill with a flock of new interns to smoke cigars with.

So . . . I took the liberty of ‘filling in the blanks.’

Thank You God they didn’t get those new lives!

AP Targets Karen Pence By Posting Her Private E-Mail Address

As if we need further proof the left-leaning MSM (mainstream media) outlets are actively targeting anyone associated with President Trump, they sank to a new low, and targeted our Second Lady, Karen Prince.

Friday in a story about Vice President Mike Pence’s efforts to block the release of his emails during his tenure as Indiana governor, the AP posted the personal email address of Karen Prince.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The AP was following a story initially posted in the Indiana Star that revealed VP, Pence used a private server for state business while he was Governor of Indiana.

Pence responded to the story by stating “no comparison whatsoever” between his use of a private account and Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which Pence routinely criticized during last year’s presidential campaign.”

AP removed the email address from subsequent stories when they learned Mrs. Pence still used the account.

Dear Dan Grilo: The Internet Never Forgets

During last night’s Joint Session there were plenty of moments that make America shake its collective head, but none, in this writer’s opinion were more reprehensible than Dan Grilo‘s tweet disrespecting military widow, Carryn Owens.

While the rest of us watched the raw emotion in this woman’s face when President Trump spoke of her husband, and grieved with her, Dan Grilo took to Twitter to say the following:

Almost immediately Twitter reacted and called him out… this writer being no exception.

He quickly protected his tweets .. another thing not lost on Twitter . . . or this writer.

Holly Briley

Well it all must have been too much for his delicate feelings because as of this morning he has deactivated his account – no doubt to clean it and his underoos he must have soiled during all of the back lash.

But, that’s okay Dan .. the internet never forgets .. especially when you disrespect our military and their grieving families. Next time instead of disrespecting them, and minimizing their grief you should just say “thank you” because THEY fight and DIE for YOUR freedoms.. which include the free speech you so fully used to show the world what a truly repugnant human being you are.

UPDATE:
In a statement from Liberty Advisor Group it has been confirmed that Dan Grilo’s employment with them has been terminated.

“Last night during President Trump’s speech, a Liberty Advisor Group employee sent out an offensive and inappropriate tweet regarding the Gold Star family that was being rightly honored before Congress and the Nation. The personal views of this individual do not represent Liberty and we vigorously disavow them.

Although the message and subsequent apologies were sent from an individual’s personal account, and bore no connection to his work with Liberty, his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values and the unyielding respect it has for the members of our Nation’s Armed Forces.  Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty.

Liberty’s culture places a high value on the men and women of America’s military who fight to defend us and our families. We honor them. We want to express our sincere condolences to Mrs. Owens.  We also apologize to all those who have served this nation, including those Liberty employees who have themselves served, and anyone else who was offended by these comments.”
