The whole bucket of woke

To paraphrase podcaster Jason Whitlock (who was cheering on black men* who were commenting on the mug shot in solidarity because dual justice standards is something they know): "It's not about Trump." For me, it's also not Trump; it's the whole bucket of woke the Democrats are throwing at us. It's CRT, Covid, the lockdown, the privileged students' loans, climate hysteria, loss of our borders, mutilation of children who've been brainwashed about gender, imported drugs from Mexico via China, corruption in the acronym agencies (FBI, CIA, FDA, CDC), silenced churches, ridicule of patriotism, and men in women's spaces, sports, and make-up, dual standards from media reporting on Trump with screams and protecting Biden with silence. It's all of it. As Jason says, "Trump is an Avatar." (embodiment or personification, as of a principle, attitude, or view of life)

Who is the president of the United States?

 Narcissist, Criminal, Demented. That's who.

Who else could "empathize" with thousands who've lost homes and family members by talking about a kitchen fire in his home, but they saved his car and cat? Who else can have a stream of money from foreign countries--China, Ukraine) funneled to family members, yet never had anything but a government salary? Who else can grab little girls and women on camera and not even understand how the media cover for him? Who else can be a flagrant socialist/fascist and opine about democracy with a straight face?

Once to every man and nation, a great hymn

 I usually have a hymn in my morning devotions, and today it was "Once to every man and nation." I looked through my various hymn resources and couldn't find it, although I was almost marching and humming from the kitchen to the library. I knew it; why couldn't I find it?

That's not the title.  Actually, it's from a poem called "The Present Crisis," written by a very famous 19th century poet, James Russell Lowell, in protest of the Mexican War and slavery, published in 1845. Lowell was an ardent abolitionist.

For me, this hymn from "The Present Crisis" is the current crisis of life vs. death--abortion. Yes, the word slave appears a few times in the poem, but it could be slave to materialism, an ideology or "reproductive freedom."   Death is in every platform and policy of the Democrats, and although Republicans don't write it into their mission statement, many do support abortion. Imagine, a country hoping to succeed in economics, education, technology, safety and health, and virtue by destroying the weak and helpless? It should be our anthem, as it was for abolitionists in the 19th century, and for Martin Luther King, Jr. for civil rights in the 20th century. It speaks of man and nation, truth and falsehood, darkness and light. The hymn begins with the 5th stanza of the poem, so there is much more. East to west, hut and palace, right and wrong, conscious and unconscious, gain or loss, "Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne," and "on the morrow crouches Judas with the silver in his hands." Listen closely.

Also wrote about this in 2020 Collecting My Thoughts: Once to every man and nation when I had a Methodist hymnal on hand.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad


Cleaning the gutters

We've had some really bad storms this summer--like the one that cost us over $1700 by blowing out the garage door openers and our phones. And the ones clogging up the gutters. Today there are some good ol' boys here to fix my clogged gutters. It's possible that a confederate flag on a cap isn't politically correct these days, but better than the hammer/sickle logo worn on the hearts of Fani Willis and Jack Smith who are interfering with the 2024 election at the direction of the Biden Administration and the Democrat party. I never thought I'd see 1930s Soviet style courts in the USA.

Our most famous election deniers are Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and Stacy Abrams, all Southerners. Maybe they are still fighting the Civil War?

"As the Left continues its relentless persecution and prosecution of former President Donald Trump, a pattern has developed. The Democrats have elected black women as the leaders of the Trump witch hunt, and Jason believes it's for a reason. Not only is it a reflection of America’s further descent into a matriarchal culture, but charging black women specifically with the task of taking down Donald, in the eyes of liberals, makes them beyond reproach. “This is a part of the scam that the black women are playing and perhaps voluntarily. Do they realize that they're being used to inoculate these charges against Trump? This is a joke, because if you put black women as the face of it, if you question the legitimacy of them, you can be accused of racism.” Royce White joins “Fearless” to dive into the latest Trump charges and the role that Letitia James, Fani Willis, and Tanya Chutkan are playing as shills for the Democratic Party and the Biden administration."

Fairywren on my table

The calendar bird on my kitchen table today is a Splendid Fairywren. Isn't that a splendid name? We see tiny birds I've been calling wrens (but probably aren't) when we eat dinner on our deck, but they don't look like this although pretty. If we were lunching in Australia, we might see them. Males and females of most species are dimorphic (2 forms), and usually the males are the showiest to attract the females. The girly birds are attracted to the best and biggest show-offs so they can have great babies and continue the breed/ race/ species.

Whether you are a creationist like me, or an evolutionist like most are taught in schools, you know males and females in all human cultures are different so that the race can continue. Until recently, that is. Only the leftist ideologs of the late 20th, and early 21st centuries don't want the human race to continue. Yes, they hate Christians and conservatives, but apparently, they also hate themselves.

Pants for fall, Talbots catalog

The September Talbots catalog just dropped through the door slot. How many ways can it name the slacks/pants? Over 30. Almost all have spandex. I did this for the Spring catalog, but only recorded 17--perhaps I collapsed a few.  And no, I don't know the difference between high waist and above waist.  I think it's safe to go to a resale shop and pick out anything.  Looks like anything goes.

1) above waist, wide leg (Greenwich)
2) high waist, straight leg
3) above waist, flare leg
4) above waist, wide-leg crop
5) at waist, ankle length, relaxed
6) above waist, boot leg, ankle length
7) above waist, straight leg, full length
8) above waist, demi boot, crop leg
9) above waist, wide leg, full length (Weston)
10) at waist, skinny leg, ankle length
11) at waist, straight leg, ankle length, front zip (Hampshire)
12) above waist, flare leg, ankle length
13) at waist, slim leg, ankle length (Chatham)
13) balance legging
14) Modal cropped pants
15) balance joggers
16) pajama pants
17) at waist, full length, flared (Portland Trouser)
18) at waist, skinny leg, ankle length (Portland Pants)
19) at waist, flare, full length
20) at waist, tapered leg, ankle pants, lined (suit)
21) above waist, skinny leg, ankle length, jeggings
22) same as 21, but with slimming panel
23) at waist, slim length, slim ankle, slimming panel (5 pocket jeans)
24) below waist, relaxed leg, ankle length (Chino)
25) above waist, boot leg, full length, slimming panel
26) above waist, straight leg, full length (jeans)
27) above waist, straight leg, ankle length (chino)
28) out and about stretch wide leg [no information on waist or length, but photo is over the shoe]
29) everyday stretch leggings [waist & length not described,
30) out and about stretch jogger
31) sporty leggings with attitude
32) everyday, stretch, straight leg pants

A new dictionary to help you understand social justice jargon

If you need a dictionary to keep up with all the language changes and inventions of the (mostly) leftist social justice warriors, try James Lindsay who also has a podcast provides citations and quotes from the original sources, which is also what any good dictionary does. For instance, a "birthing person" is a mother who does not see herself as a woman, but on an ideological plane its use is to weaken the core pillar of the family and religion (I've condensed about 3 paragraphs). Not all terms are linked, I suppose because he's still working on it and knows the word being used.

Biology made easy and understandable

Are you confused or angry about the transgendered lies about women and men? Here's a great video by someone I trust (a fired university professor) Heather Heying on the After Skool website. She's an evolutionary biologist, and will tell you all you need to know about humans, animals, the birds and the bees, nature and nurture, averages and exceptions.  Plus in the style of education videos, there are some great illustrations.  She reads from the book she co-authored with her husband, The hunter gatherer's guide to the 21st century,

Bird on my table

We have a bird calendar on the kitchen table, and today's is really spectacular, a Turquoise Jay. It's very common in Colombia. I listened to its call, and it is no prettier than our common Blue Jay.

I am a creationist, but I love biology. These days you have to choose your sources carefully--science journals have become woke and are slaves to DEI, climate change, CRT, ecofeminism, transagenda, etc.

By now--update on the boosters

In the last two days I've heard of several folks who have Covid, one is in the hospital, but no one I know personally. I'm told the cases are increasing, the hospitals are crowded, and I suspect we'll soon be getting scare warnings, and pressure to do all the things that didn't protect us in 2021-22. 
By now, what the MSM/CDC/WHO and Big Pharma don't mention is that virtually the only people getting it or dying from it have been vaccinated/boosted, some 3-4 times. Quite a change from what we were told in 2020 while waiting for the first one.

By now, we also know that myocarditis in young adults who've had the vax is NOT rare, although that's what we're being told by the same people who told us the vaccine would stop the spread. But even if it were rare, a scar on the heart is not a good thing for a young person's future.

By now, we know there was no reason to be vaccinating children and babies. It's just far too rare in that demographic. 
By now we know this was a violation of the Nuremberg Code, principals established after WWII to prevent experimenting on people without their permission or knowledge of the results. mRNA injections for this disease are still FDA approved for emergency use. Millions were given no choice about taking it even though long term (like years) results couldn't be known.

By now we've seen the profits and know this has been a fabulous income stream for the large pharmaceutical companies, especially as the disease evolves and new boosters must be created (and recommended/mandated).

By now many of the "conspiracy theories" have been proven to be common sense based on years of research and knowledge of previous public health and pandemic measures.

By now the premier medical journals have been shown to be useful for lining your bird cage, but not much else.

Things have changed since 2020

Have you ever thought about how many things we love about America that the Democrats, mostly since November 2020, have made illegal, dangerous or terroristic with the advent of Covid? You don't need a tin foil hat you just need to look at the data or count your fingers and toes, ears, eyes and nose.
common sense
saying men are not women
peer reviewed medical articles
objecting to an election result
safe and FDA approved drugs
praying in public
speaking at school board meetings
leaving your home to walk in the fresh air
U.S. president phoning a president of another free country
using a pronoun
protecting children from pornography at a public library
attending the Latin mass
believing countries need borders
After the 2020 election "human rights/democracy groups" stopped complaining about pandemic restrictions in the U.S. Apparently misinformation, disinformation and gas-lighting just disappeared. And a vaccine replaced treatment. Want to add something?

Predicting the outcomes of the pandemic lockdowns

 This blog by a woman named Pam was published 6 years ago, well before the pandemic lockdown, but it shows what was going to happened multiplied 1000 times over. How Not To Let Yourself Go (Especially If You're Over 40) - Go Retro!

But then I was laid off in August last year and guess what? I did kind of start to let myself go, at least on some days. And let me tell you, it can be a dangerous slippery slope.

Getting up later then usual and lounging in my PJs on my laptop until 10:30 AM on most mornings became the norm.

I went quite a few days without wearing makeup, especially if I wasn't planning on leaving the house that day (who was going to see me? Before you answer "the UPS man" I can assure you we don't order much online and there really have not been many through the years that I would consider attractive.)

I normally wash my hair every other day, but sometimes I let that go an extra day because I was simply too lazy to deal with detangling and drying it. I took to throwing on an old rag of a top and jeans. With no employer to go to and nowhere I needed to be, there seemed no point in making myself look presentable.

Worst of all, I slacked off with my exercising routine...and ended up gaining 12 pounds.

And the saddest part is, I had no real excuse for it. I'm not a mom and I'm not holding down a job outside of the house. I'm also not depressed, so I have no explanation for it other than sheer laziness.

Birthday solicitations

Facebook aka Meta notified me: "People have raised $6 billion USD on Facebook and Instagram for causes they care about. Create a fundraiser and we'll take care of the donation processing with no fees. "

Me: No thank you. Zuckerberg donated BIG money in strategic counties to elect Joe Biden. Meta has flagged my posts just because I mentioned a safe and FDA approved drug. Let him use his own Zuck Bucks. I'm giving my money to Christian aid and conservative organizations.

Wildfires on Maui

The Maui fires may turn out to be our worst national disaster, but NYT*, WaPo and other leftist green organizations will blame global warming/climate change/unnamed "they" rather than the ineptitude of the electric company and bad management of the land areas ripe for disaster. This is how Democrats handle disasters, natural and political. Their administrations never have dirty hands (remember George Floyd?), but can build computer models for what could possibly happen in 1000 years and slap another tax on you while bureaucrats get rich .

*I have seen a NYT article that does provide some facts on the poor choices of Hawaiin Electric.

The Biden Crime Family Timeline and Corruption cheat sheet



The Biden crime family’s multimillion-dollar bribery and money-laundering operation has more moving parts than an 80-year-old grandfather clock. See story by Deroy Murdock. Timeline of Ukrainian Pay-to-Play Scheme Confirms Bidens' Corruption (

Thomas Sowell on Socialism

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”
― Thomas Sowell, The Thomas Sowell Reader

True, but the universities are filled with "intellectuals" who have been passing these lies on since the 70s-80s. Their graduates have been stocking the board rooms of corporations and non-profits, getting elected to congress, appointed to judgeships and filling the pulpits. All without counting the costs to the poor and minorities whom they claim to champion. We saw the first real progress in 50 years for blacks under President Trump; it terrified both Democrat and Republican good ol' boys who'd been so comfortable letting things slide into socialism. They did what they know and used the tried and true methods of socialism and fascism to destroy him.

Naomi Wolf discovers Donald Trump in person--what a wake up

I wish all liberals / progressives / Democrats could read this. She's got a few things a little off, but mostly she remembers her own errors in believing media lies and how she and others have misjudged Trump. And because she is a Jew, she gives a new slant on Trump's programs and behavior. As a real journalist, she has done her homework like Jason Whitlock, Matt Taibbi, Elon Musk, Dave Rubin and a few others.

Why are millennials dying at a higher rate than usual?

Among working people 35 to 44 years old, a stunning 34% more died than expected in the last quarter of 2022, with above-average rates in other working-age groups, too. White collar more than blue collar and the trend is world wide. It's not Covid--that age group was not at high risk.

COVID doesn't explain why Gen Z, millennials are dying. What does? (  2022 data, life insurance Dr. John Campbell

A gruesome anniversary

The Taliban took control in Afghanistan two years ago due to Biden's disgraceful, evil surrender and abandonment of our allies and troops. No one has resigned; no one's gone to jail.  Bush freed the women, and Biden put them back in bondage.  And yet Democrats remain loyally blind and deaf ignoring his parting gift to the Taliban of more than $7 billion worth of weapons and equipment. This old man is no different than the young man in 1975 who ran out on our South Vietnamese allies, saying then U.S. had "no obligation, moral or otherwise, to evacuate foreign nationals." But he finds it necessary to accept millions of foreign nationals from over 160 countries at our border.

Biden with the aid of billionaires, crooked elected officials and appointed judges is trying to destroy our system of elections by putting his opponent in jail for questioning the flawed election of 2020. Donald Trump received 12 million more votes for his second term, something that doesn't happen, and swing states and counties going Dem that had always been Republican. Obama received 6 million fewer in his 2nd term. We're to believe Biden is more popular than Obama? Something doesn't smell right.
Democrats so manipulated the voting system by using Covid mandates, something they'd hoped to do for many years. A DA in Georgia is claiming a conspiracy because of a Trump tweet or asking for a phone number. Why do Democrats believe they can't get elected unless they become fascists and terrorists?

Using the KKK terrorist tactics of the 19th century (also from the Democrat party), Biden's handlers are even charging anyone associated with Trump in order to insure he can't possibly have good lawyers and loyal supporters.

Watching reruns of Antiques Roadshow

 I've seen so many reruns, I'm seeing words. . . in Roadshow . . sort of like scrabble. If I used plurals, I'd have more words.

Ad / As / Do / Ha / Ash / DOA / Doh / DOS / Dow / Had / How / Oar / Raw / Rod / Row / Sad / Saw / Sod / Sow / War / Was / Who /

Dash / Door / Down / Hash / Rash / Road / Rode / Sash / Shad / Shaw / Shod / Shoo / Show / Soar / Ward / Wash / Word / 

It costs less to thrive today

I've often been suspicious of the memes that claim no one can afford the middleclass lifestyle enjoyed in the 50s-60s when many families had only one earner--the dad. I'd scratch my head and thought about the average home size in the 1950s--1,000 sq. ft. and the average cost of a 2-3 bedroom, 1 bathroom house, about $10-11,000 ($140,000 today). And the gardens that produced for Mom's canning after all the work she put in to get it to that stage; and the clothes lines that dried the clothes from our labor intensive wringer washer; and our party line telephone we used for taking Dad's orders from his customers; and all the painting, wallpapering, plumbing and carpentry my Mom did. I thought about the higher tax rates, both federal and local, as people were rebuilding their lives after WWII and the Korean War. Did anyone have health insurance? We didn't (except polio insurance, fortunately since my sister Carol got it and the family, not the nation was quarantined). We all had 2 vaccinations--small pox and later polio by 1955. And we only went to the dentist when the tooth hurt, and only to the doctor if bleeding or vomiting. Vacations? Never knew anyone who took one. Credit cards hadn't been invented yet. One car for our family of six. But we never went without--we all went to church camp; we all had music lessons; we visited our grandparents every weekend. Our parents stayed married despite all these "hardships" of only one phone and no TV and they didn't take out college loans for us.
What's unique about this article is it shows that the middle class really is thriving, but it's all how you look at the statistics about square footage, consumer goods, taxes, and abundance. This author compares the cost to 1985 instead of 1955, but the message works for 70 years as well as 40. Nice that you don't have to be a victim, which seems to be the big message these days.

Tucker Carlson on Twitter: interview with Steven Sund, Capitol Police Chief

 Tucker interviews the Capitol Chief of Police again; he doesn't own the tape that Fox made and hasn't shown.

  Tucker Carlson on Twitter: "Ep. 15 Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund reveals what really happened on January 6th. Our Fox News interview with him never aired, so we invited him back." / X

This is very disturbing.  Unfortunately, the segment of the population that slavishly watched the J-6 trial, will never see this.  MSM won't show it, and although it's available, they'll never watch it.  Their minds have been fried by propaganda and lies.

Meanwhile, in Morocco

In Africa a Moroccan man was jailed for five years for criticizing King Mohammed VI in Facebook posts. The USA has them beat. The Democrats in power want the former president to go to jail for life for using constitutionally protected political speech in questioning the results and voting irregularities in the 2020 election. Even though women and men in that party have questioned results of other elections for 2 decades. Also in the USA, people have lost their jobs for questioning a government agency's opinion, not verified or proven in peer reviewed articles, on methods to treat a pandemic with inexpensive drugs already available. They don't work for or report to that agency--they just questioned it on social media. And BAM! The power of that agency's ties to the companies making billions with the jab got them fired and deplatformed. They lost their basic, constitutionally protected right to free speech, and their right to earn a living. They are being held up as examples of what happens to those who question the government. It's a form of terrorism. Also, just last week in the USA a man in Utah was executed by federal police for posting offensive memes on Facebook about the President who is involved in the witch hunt against the former president they want to jail. So don't you be criticizing those Africans.

We Christians need to be humble. Not "more humble," but humble. Jesus told them that when his disciples asked about which could be the hot shot in his kingdom. He put in their midst a person who was powerless and "simple." Not a government official or a scholar.  A child. The special vote in Ohio on August 8 is a reminder. Christians lost this one. Not Republicans, but Christians. And it's out there for all to see.  We keep looking for the world's approval.

We've done a really poor job on life issues like the right to life, but euthanasia for the sick and elderly is knocking at the door.  You can't wait for Roe v. Wade to collapse after 50 years before you get your local house in order. That sticky problem with the ease our state constitution gets changed has been a problem long before 2023, and both parties use it to their advantage (in 2011 it was a health insurance amendment). The percent of Christians who accept full legality of abortion even at full term is too high.  Twenty-four percent of white, evangelical Christians say abortion should be legal in all or most cases; 60% of white Protestants believe that; 66% of black Protestants. Catholics at least have a church teaching on abortion, which few Protestants do, and yet that is a whopping fifty six percent believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases.   See the Pew report Views about abortion among Christians - Religion in America: U.S. Religious Data, Demographics and Statistics | Pew Research Center  (although its definition may be a bit loose--that is explained in the report). Also see Public Opinion on Abortion | Pew Research Center

Christians are losing out to the world--the golden sex calf. One hundred years ago, Christians beginning with the Anglicans began to accept contraception because the world was doing it; then it was the hormone pill in the 60's and living together without marriage--movie stars and Phil Donahue recommended it; then it was abortion in the 70s and 80s; then same sex marriage, and now the transagenda movement with mutilation and cross sex hormones for children. We're moving quickly to socially accept pedophilia (renamed of course).

"Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Everyday, I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right." ~Søren Kierkegaard

Skin health and resistance training

"The beneficial effects of physical activity on human health are well-known. Making time for 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week can reduce our risk of heart disease and stroke. Regular movement helps to counteract diabetes and metabolic syndrome risk, encourages stronger bones and can positively affect our mental health. But what about skin health?" Would you believe resistance training?

Energy drinks--Celsius has anyone else tried this "sparkling energy drink?" I bought a few cans some weeks ago which we didn't use and tried one the other day because it was hot. Watermelon. It tasted fine and did fizz a bit. It has a lot of B vitamins. I used NO research energy, but AI tells me . . . 
"B vitamins, especially niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. They are essential for converting food into energy and breaking down and using the energy found in the foods we eat. (This drink has 6 of the 8 B vitamins, 1000% of daily requirement of Biotin)

Sugar, which is a quick source of energy. Some energy drinks are sugar-free and low-carb friendly. (There is none in this drink)

Amino acid derivatives, such as taurine and L-carnitine. They are naturally produced by the body and have roles in several biological processes."
I'm not athletic at all and am sort of a slug when it comes to energy use. Anyone else know about energy drinks?

At Aldi's they are about $2.00 a can.

Thoughts on the upcoming vote in Ohio--Matt. 18:1-9

In Sunday School today we were looking at Matthew 18:1-9 and other verses. Christians in Ohio are divided on what to do about Issue 1 on Tuesday. In fact, Christians are downright hostile towards each other on this issue. A look at these verses could speak to that.

First, Jesus sets a small child in their midst when his disciples (who seem to be slow learners) ask about who is the greatest in his Kingdom. Children in the ancient world had no standing unlike today when entire households and several generations will focus their lives and wellbeing around children and grandchildren, lavishing time and wealth on them. Jesus essentially told them to be needy, powerless and marginalized if they truly wanted status in the Kingdom. Think about it. Who is more needy, powerless and marginalized than an unborn child?

Second, Jesus then goes on to use hyperbole in showing what happens to those who would cause one of the little ones (his followers) to stumble. Really graphic and cruel--being drowned with a heavy weight attached to the neck, having limbs chopped off or eyes poked out. Again, in the ancient world, the disabled and blind would not have much social status.
Third, although Jesus is not referencing abortion, the cruel suffering depicted in his hyperbole, is real life and anguish for the unborn in the midst of an abortion. Right here in Ohio. Here in America. Limbs cut off and sometimes scissors jabbed into the skull to make the head small enough so the child is "still born," and not alive at birth. Late term abortion is rare in the U.S.--about 10,000 a year--some say less, some say more. That's a small city of dismembered babies!
When Dr. Kermit Gosnell was tried a decade ago for murdering babies in late term abortions who could have survived, only a few minutes (13 minutes and 30 seconds for a 58 day trial) of the grisly testimony ever made it to broadcast news. There will be Christians going to the polls on Tuesday who have no idea what they are voting for, enshrining abortion for any reason at any stage of the pregnancy in our Constitution. But even worse, there will be Christians who do know, yet still cling to the lie it's a "woman's right."

Will you be needing a surgeon any time soon?

What happened to the American College of Surgeons (ACS) in the wake of the George Floyd killing.
"In the chaotic, hyper-racialized, and politicized aftermath of that event, nearly every major organization in the United States rushed to signal its acceptance of the belief that the country, its institutions, and even its legal system were systemically racist and in need of radical transformation. This took the form of embracing critical race theory (CRT) under the guise of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

The ACS joined this pell-mell rush and within weeks of the Floyd killing had assembled a Task Force on Racism to combat structural racism in the organization. The reality of structural racism was never questioned, nor did the task force provide any evidence for its existence. Rather, the task force assumed racism to exist on the basis of disparities in the representation of blacks in the ACS and allegations of racial disparities in surgical outcomes. The task force’s recommendations were to adopt “antiracism,” an activist social movement that claims that one cannot simply not be racist; one must be actively engaged in antiracism, a term coined by Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist.
The ACS installed a new Department of Diversity to counter racism, with its own executive director and clinical director, the latter a new position on the Board of Regents. The board also instituted DEI initiatives such as training in implicit bias, microaggressions, and ally/active-bystander response, all of which are integral to CRT. (Even so, the board denied that any of these measures constituted CRT.) in June 2021, the ACS hosted a retreat for leaders of all the surgical societies in the U.S. and invited Kendi as keynote speaker. . . "

And anyone who questioned this? You guessed it. A racist. Banned. Hope you don't need a surgeon.

Looking back on Covid and all the What-ifs

What if doctors had been allowed to treat the disease that condemned millions to death in 2020-2022 with their own basic knowledge learned through experience and medical school? 

What if they'd started treatment early, instead of waiting to hospitalize until there was no hope? 

What if they hadn't been forced to follow WHO and CDC, which are heavily politicized and Big Pharma which had strong financial interests? 

What if they'd been allowed to follow common sense and years of studies on masking? 

What if the populace had been encouraged to lose weight, exercise, get out in the sun and fresh air, instead of locking them down in despair and harmful environments? 

They wouldn't have paid attention to weak studies about two drugs, very safe but effective, and used them to treat the symptoms. 

They wouldn't have put very sick people on ventilators. 

They would have tapered patients with inflammation off steroids. 

Fewer would have died. 

Our economy wouldn't have tanked. 

Doctors wouldn't have lost their careers and the thousands of years of combined experience which now makes us all weaker.

 It was a coup against medicine, science, common sense, and history.

Please listen to Dark Horse podcast and others in alternative sources (there are many) look back on all the mistakes Big Gov and Big Pharma made (or maybe they weren't mistakes since it put Biden in office). Politicians in all nations, all parties, now know how to completely bring a country to its knees, and that knowledge is the power to do it again. To be used in the U.S. by either party.

Cover of Architectural Digest--John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

The latest issue of AD (Architectural Digest) just dropped through the mail slot with the lovely cover photo of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen with 3 of their 4 beautiful children. I know nothing about him except lately he's been promoting abortion on demand for Ohio (they don't say that but there will be no limits if it is enshrined in our state Constitution, and I believe it includes rights for children thinking they were born in the wrong body). Something like $13 million by outside the state wealth has been poured into this campaign.

Legend and Teigen are certainly wealthy, although I assumed he was paid for grim advertising. The AD photos provide the brand names of the clothing they are wearing, the jewelry designers, the pendant above the dining room table, designer of the custom carpet, the slabs of custom marble in the kitchen (Calacatta Macchia Vecchia) are repeated in the bathrooms, names of the floor lamps, how the music room is wrapped in a de Gournay wallpaper, and the kids' room with full size stuffed giraffes with beds made to look like cars on a safari (a nod to an African heritage?). The sofa costs over $27,000 and who knows what that swimming pool cost them.
According to the CDC 39% of all women who had abortions in 2020 were non-Hispanic Black, while 33% were non-Hispanic White, 21% were Hispanic, and 7% were of other races or ethnicities. Yes, John and Chrissy are helping diminish the black race in the U.S. while choosing to raise 4 children in gob-smacking wealth. They are so wealthy, they could be providing for home care and parent training for many single moms, but how progressive would that be? It's not the Democrat way. 

Scams via texting

Although my baby is in her 50s, today she warned me about a scam that might come up in a text. It will say it's from UPS and will include a link for me to click for delivery, but it will try to steal information or direct me to another website that is bad. Since I've been waiting for a few online orders, I'd be a good target. I'm new to this "smart" phone stuff. I'd never fall for that in my e-mail, but I'm a novice on the other scams.

The Marxist roots of Critical Race Theory

"CRT has its roots in the early 20th Century thought of neo-Marxist Antonio Gramsci, founder of the Italian Communist Party. His desire was to spur on the stalled communism of 19th Century social revolutionists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels toward an overthrow of the “bourgeoisie” (ruling middle- and upper-class) by the proletariat (working-class). To accomplish this goal, societal norms and institutions, such as family, nation state, capitalism, and God, needed to be torn down, and this is where we begin to see the notion of group-based morality, with the idea that what is moral is what serves the interests of the “oppressed” or “marginalized.”

While European Marxism focused on class, a distinctly American brand of Marxism was brought to America in 1937 by scholars from the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, Germany, known commonly as the Frankfurt School, who left Nazi Germany to escape the Third Reich. They eventually landed in New York where they setup shop at the Columbia University Teachers’ College. While most of the Frankfurt scholars returned to Germany after the defeat of the Nazis, Herbert Marcuse stayed behind and became one of the leading spokesmen of Critical Theory (on which CRT is based) during the massive upheavals of the 1960s and early 1970s caused by riots and violence associated with the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam movements. The focus shifted specifically to oppressed ethnic, racial, and gender groups.

In short, CRT argues that America’s legal, economic, and political systems are inextricably racist. It argues that racism advances only the interests of white elites materially and working-class whites mentally. CRT Chooses race-consciousness over the Enlightenment view of colorblindness as a societal norm. Since all whites benefit from an unearned advantage, race-consciousness remedies rectify this inherent injustice. CRT criticizes the civil-rights movement and the liberal ideology it promotes. The view is civil rights laws are limited to isolated discriminatory acts by individuals or businesses, when in fact discrimination continues to be both pervasive and systemic. CRT rejects the principle of equal opportunity, believing it to be a myth, and rejects conceptions of “merit” since only those in power determine what is equal or what has merit. Finally, CRT promotes equality of results instead of equality of opportunity.

Baby Madison Baby Doe now has a headstone on her grave

Plain City, Ohio, police announced on June 15 that the remains of a newborn girl were discovered in the back of a garbage truck. She still had the umbilical cord attached when she was found, according to the police. Because she was discovered in Madison County, community leaders named her Madison Baby Doe.

Government pressure on Facebook was responsible for censorship of Americans

Mike Huckabee addresses the Facebook problem


Many liberals like to simply deny things that the rest of us can see with our own eyes, from the crisis on the border to Biden family corruption to government censorship of opposing views on the Internet. If it’s inconvenient for them, they simply claim it doesn’t really exist, or to use their popular term, it’s just a “rightwing conspiracy theory.” Well, explain this:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan just released a trove of internal documents from Facebook and Instagram parent corporation Meta that show how the Biden Administration was aggressively leaning on Meta to censor posts during the pandemic. They used the rationale that those views were “misinformation” that had to be suppressed.

That article includes details about a senior Biden advisor being “outraged” that a humorous meme about the COVID vaccine hadn’t been removed yet, with more pressure brought to bear until it was. Other posts the White House demanded be censored included a video of Tucker Carlson. Not surprisingly, these officials showed zero concern for Facebook’s arguments that the posts violated no rules and that removing them would be an infringement of Constitutionally-protected free speech.

Jordan said the Committee had to threaten to hold Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in contempt to force him to hand over these documents, which ironically prove that government pressure was directly responsible for the censorship on Facebook. I wonder why Zuckerberg wouldn’t want that to be known? Either he has Stockholm Syndrome or they did a really good job of bullying him."

The left manipulates language

While the government (Biden administration and the regulatory agencies it controls) steals pronouns that used to have meaning, it makes nouns like racism and terrorism so common that they have become meaningless. All these changes are directed at their enemies--Republicans, conservatives, independents and constitutionalists so that they can no longer speak except with great caution and fear. It's really a violation of the first amendment. Destroy the words and the enemies are muzzled.

They've also added phrases where a single word or two used to have meaning. . .
  •  "lack of access," 
  • "assigned at birth,"
  •  "health disparities," 
  • "people of color," "Black lives matter" (but no one else does), 
  • "trust the science," 
  • "people who were formerly incarcerated," or 
  • "persons who are not securely housed." 
And they've bungled the use of phrases we thought we knew, but when looking at data, we find out they've been massaged and manipulated--like 
  • "hate crime,"
  •  "anti-Semitism," 
  • "holocaust denial" or 
  • "food insecure." 
Then they created words that are incomprehensible for the average person like 
  • cisgender,
  • transgender, 
  • malinformation and 
  • misinformation.
We've recently seen that major "conspiracy theories" were used by the government against all sensible, thinking people to the right of the Clintons. 
  • The virus DID come from a lab leak; 
  • masks didn't stop the SPREAD of the virus; 
  • Hunter's lap top was REAL and not Russian misinformation; 
  • and UFOs have been renamed, but are now being talked about in the OPEN. 
It's the same motive as changing words. Words are powerful--and unfortunately the government and all its buddies in NGOs, academe, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and MSM are all reading from the same script. Terrorism is only on the rise because it's been renamed and redefined to include concerned parents and traditional Catholics!. Same with racism. Same with hate crime. Same with science. It's all about power.

I don't have a solution, but do have advice. Listen to their words carefully and don't give up your freedom of speech.

The Devil is sowing weeds in Ohio

The "VOTE NO on Issue 1!" signs are popping up like weeds in my neighbors' lawns. These are the people who want to enshrine abortion at any time (even 9 months) for any reason (my boyfriend left me) for any age (no parental rights) in the Ohio Constitution. I'd guess 80% of them are Christians or check that box.
The disciples asked Jesus to explain a parable. "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field." He said in reply, "He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the Kingdom. The WEEDS are the children of the Evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they wil collect out of his Kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers,. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear."  Matthew 13:36-43
