Don't Read This

OK - so you don't follow directions, take advice or read Warning Labels very well.
Me either.
Rules were made to be broken, right?

Here's the thing: nobody likes bad news. Especially if it's going to require a change, to get out of your "comfort zone". But when a bad storm is approaching, even those who eschew "bad news" will tune in for the latest weather report. That information - however scary - becomes a life line (see Katrina et al).

Talk Radio teaches the practitioner a few things. Everybody has an opinion and most people have little-to-no factual clue what their talking about or why they believe it. For most, they "heard it somewhere". For others, their opinions are based on the adrenalin of their emotions, their feelings: "I feel Obama is doing a great job." Fine - but what do you think? More appropriately: Do you think?

Two great quotes to take with you:
        "You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts"
                         Daniel Patrick Moynihan
                 
 "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of      avoiding reality
                                Ayn Rand


These are "focusing quotes". When applied, they compel one to stay focused on the issue at hand and not wander off into the weeds of rhetoric and irrelevance.

That circles us back to the Warning Label above. Here are two articles (and a short vid) you should not read if you are allergic to disturbing news supported by facts or you prefer feelings to reality.

If you're read this far, I suspect you will click here and then here.

You're welcome.

A Timely Reminder

Originally posted just a few months ago, the crumbling of society has accelerated, exacerbated by an aggressively emboldened - or increasingly desperate - MSM to mis- and disinform anyone attempting to pay attention via their "News". Feel free to share with your friends, especially those having trouble with discernment. BW When searching for the reason why things go wrong, stop when you get to the Media. The Media is our Teacher. It's the whole world's teacher.    Everything we learn, we learn from the Media. With screens, cameras, actors and glib, well-coiffed hosts, radio and TV signals, cable, microwave, publishing, the all-powerful Internet with its own 'social media', it instructs us hourly, daily, weekly, month in, year out. The classroom is anywhere; it's ubiquitous. Class is in session even when school is closed. The course are Obedience, Submission, Conformity, Regimentation. There is no 'graduation'. There is no individual achievement, on

Dear Dr Fauci

NOTE: Linked below is the most comprehensive, direct, factual and professional peer-to-peer confrontation of Dr. Anthony Fauci I've seen. It's long. It poses direct questions to Fauci that likely reflect the same questions you have had - but not answered. There is no way this Open Letter can be construed as "conspiracy theory" or the product of a "special interest group" with a profit motive similar to the purported connections between Fauci and Bill Gates. Take the few minutes it will require to read and adsorb the entire piece. Yes, there are a few "medical" terms but nothing that will obscure the totality of the gauntlet thrown at the feet of Dr. Fauci. His various, often oblique or contradictory pronouncements taken as 'gospel' by power-crazed politicians have killed thousands, ruined businesses, even entire cities. Demand answers by writing directly to him directly and your various representatives. Share this with everyone yo

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex
