The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

What’s on My Mind This Morning? Bigots and Hackers

What’s on your mind? I am asked this question by Facebook. I just experienced interference on my modem connection from outside this home. “Oh, no, that never happens,” according to Spectrum. “Oh, no, that never happens,” according to Best Buy. “Oh, no, that never happens,” according to Verizon.

So, Spectrum gives me a new modem and a new router. Guess what? It still happens, even with a new one. No guards in place to protect my privacy from bigots who, with “smiling faces,” are cowards working as snipers on the Internet.

Two times and my scanning was “cancelled” because the printer is on the wifi. My connection was also “cancelled.” When signing back in, I noticed another wifi account which is not mine. TC8715DB2.

Is this from the neighborhood or someone with “remote access” at a far distance? I know, from working with IT in an organization, that “remote access” allows people to spy on employees. Why would this not exist for bigots who get a thrill out of being in opposition to one who is firm in his convictions about endorsing humanity, human peace and justice, and human equality? Is law enforcement going to tell me it only exists with IT in an organization? Oh, well. Perhaps that is the answer? But no one apparently is firm in convictions about humanity, human peace and justice, and human equality? Silly me.

So. I call them bigots. They call me a fag? Speaking the truth about bigots is not like derogatory remarks and slander (such as that of Molinaro) against good people. Get a grip.

Trump, According to a “My Turn” Writer in the P&S-B

Dear Editors:

Your “My Turn” columnist (3/13/2022) gave credit to Trump for achieving peace in the world, for America to become “strong and independent.” The examples given were about peace in the Middle East. One cannot argue with some of those points made. What was not said by the “My Turn” writer was that, in each case, there may have been peace, but in order to achieve the peace, there was no justice. For much of the peace was in support of the Saudi Arabian sheiks. During the Trump years, we also witnessed the sheiks ordering beheadings of their own people by using swords. They are awful pictures of injustice towards human beings. Then we saw the ISIS, supported by Putin and the Arab sheiks, who did the same thing.  In other words, justice, to Putin, the Arabian sheiks, and Trump, is how they define justice. If one does not agree, like Hitler and Stalin, then they are executed. By silencing the opposition, they achieve peace. We cannot achieve peace without justice for all.

In the same way, Trump achieved a “peace” in Afghanistan and put our pullout on a timetable. Biden chose to work with the opposition and stuck to the timetable established by Trump. Trump is applauded for achieving the peace while Biden gets slammed for removing troops from Afghanistan.  It appears Biden and the Democrats are “damned if they do and damned if they don’t.”

As far as the issue of inflation is concerned, there is evidence that the tariffs imposed by Trump on one nation (China) have had an impact on increased inflation. Biden is dragging his feet about getting rid of the tariffs and then Biden gets slammed for inflation.  Again, Biden and the Democrats are “damned if they do and damned if they don’t.”

Trump never achieved domestic peace within this nation. He emboldened many people in opposition to Democrats and the war on the COVID-19 pandemic. He could have provided supplies by invoking the Defense Protection Act. He could have done this at the time Gov. Cuomo and other governors (both Republican and Democrat) needed them. Cuomo ends up getting blamed and Trump does not. Again. Democrats are “damned if they do and damned if they don’t.” Republicans are simply above the law because of the fundagelical crap in American religion with their god of hatred. 

In the midst of all this, Trump, DeSantis, Santorum, McConnell, Rick Scott, Scott Walker (Wisconsin) all get to spend their time on suppression of voting, power in gerrymandering, bigotry towards gay folks and people with colored skin, while ignoring the domestic issues about human justice, human equality, and humanity in general.  In fact, some of them are spending more time in coming up with anti-gay and anti-colored-people rules for denying the ability for human equality. In effect, they are working against the very preamble of the U.S. Constitution which talks about maintaining domestic peace (“domestic tranquility”) and are hypocrites each time they repeat the Pledge Allegiance to the Flag and say, “…liberty and justice for all.” There is no “domestic tranquility,” due to Trump and the Republican cronies who dwell on anti-humanity legislation and legitimizing the wealthy and elitist plutocrats who don’t want a democracy because a democracy is dependent on a middle class. In this sense, Trump and his cronies, not following the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, are traitors to America and its democracy.

Car Shield Jerks, the Path, & Human Equality

Too bad Car Shield is advertising on Valerie Bertinelli’s show today (3/10/2022). I like Bertinelli. Too bad.

If seven of 10 people are supposedly thinking the country is on the wrong path, are these people getting the wrong information from our nationalized news system which has eliminated, destroyed, and curtailed local news newspapers and broadcasting? This “new norm” of news is just like the way news is covered in fascist autocracies and communist regimes. I wonder.

I think the country has been on the wrong path. But it is not recently in which it got on the wrong path. The nationalized news sources have mesmerized masses of people to believe it is just the more recent.

I believe the wrong path started with Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet said, “government is the problem” and so many people in the generations younger than the World War II and the older Baby Boom generation have taken this to heart by trashing the Democrats when Democrats do some good things when they run the government? Or is it due to the supply-side economics and deregulation put in place by Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet? Because we have ended up destroying small businesses, local news coverage which works to uncover local corruption, immorality and unethical behavior in business (such as a restaurant that hides the lack of a seafood by cusing another one but claiming it is the actual)., and handing local broadcasting airwaves over to weaker signals so the air waves can put more mobile phones online. The later? Verizon and others run the FCC so government is NOT the problem, but big corporate conglomerates pushing buttons in the government are the problem.

There are plenty of other examples of nationalized big corporations on the supply-side which take no notice of the demand-side and don’t give a damn, as with the small businesses of America, now being destroyed, did when they were really what America great as the backbone of this nation. The problem is that government does not regulate these nationalized corporations as much as it once did. It is just the opposite, many of these big corporations think they are above the law and regulate themselves and then control the government in a corrupt manner.

Now it becomes scary to discover that many of these big businesses have worked things out with foreign despots like Putin, control the Republican Party, and are pushing for changes in government which has recognized colored people, gay folks, and many others, in the name of human equality. Chick-Fil-A with a menu with carbs and breading which is not good for diabetics, as with the rest of fast food operations, are working to screw gay people over. They think that making money with carb-based fast food, they have more of a right to force their hatred of gay folks and push for conversion therapy, make those of us in same-sex marriages feel bad by pushing us back into the closet. They are not making money by means of the likes or dislikes of the food they prepare. They are making money by trying to attract puritanical hateful people who wish to force their puritanical religious beliefs, based only on traditionalism, on our society.

I have to ask. How has our sexual identity, same-sex marriages, and simply enjoying life without going backwards and restricted to gay bars, hurt these people? Please answer this question. Have I hurt any of these people? If so, what have these bastards fabricated? We live our lives in peace and seek justice with human equality. How the hell does that hurt the CEO of Chick-Fil-A, the company, and others who go there to help feed the hatred of the corporation so it can use the profits to FORCE their lousy ways of hatred upon society, destroy adoption practices of the LGBTQ+, destroy our peace, justice, and happiness, force us into segregation in a closet, and FORCE conversion therapy upon us? How the hell have we hurt these bastards so as to deserve their cherry-picking hands to grab what they wish to grab from a Bible and other sources so as to validate what they wish to do to a group of people?

What have we done to make 7 of 10 people think this nation is now on the wrong path? Please answer this and tell me. Otherwise, I think all of those who tarnish our images are nothing but SOBs. What else should I think? You damn cowards unwilling to speak and discuss these matters with us, out of fear you might find out you are wrong? And that is blame to put on us? If so, you cowards and bullies are nothing but bastards and SOBs. I don’t know what else to say when everyone just remains silent and lets silence grow like a cancer.

“If any demand of me why I speak, I plead as my apology the fact that abler and more eloquent men humans have failed to speak.”

Sad thing. Everyone seems to be letting silence like a cancer grow. Is this in order to hide the true feelings? A person feels scoffed at and pushed aside when this happens. So, why do I try to determine what is the truth? This after watching a program early this morning about seeking peace. But the main idea was to seek the truth, in order to reach peace. So, we have to wait until we are ruined by the dictatorial ones before we get the truth? That is what happens when silence like a cancer grows.

β€œTravel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad,

wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Add-on: Broad, wholesome, charitable views of humans and things cannot be acquired by remaining silent and not allowing the truth to be known and shared with others ,due to a nationalized news system which curtails the knowledge base at the local level. People then live in a “box” and refuse to look outside the box (of course, in case you don’t know, this is a figurative expression with the word, “box”). I could use a vulgar word because this makes me so angry. But then, it m atters not whether I can get my point across by using either vulgar language or not. Everyone just sits on their own opinions and make that their “box” from which, “how dare you remove me from my own box.” Good. Go and curl up like a dog in a box. And die. When I am shoved into a corner in this manner and wondering how much dictatorial people might push me and others into a corner; wonder how much such dictatorial folks will take my freedom, liberty, life, peace and justice from me and about 10% of this population away from us; wonder how much we will go backwards, be segregated and shoved into a closet. And don’t tell me “it’s not important” or “don’t worry.” As a gay man I have heard those words in the past and many times. We need to move forward with what we have which 10% of the population (LGBTQ+) have gained. We WON’T take for granted all that we have earned in the form of happiness and allow Putin lovers to do this.

It’s Not Politics, Stupid, When Discussing Human Justice

F**k the Car Shield advertisement saying, “country is heading in wrong direction.” Go to hell, Car Shield because the country is NOT heading in the wrong direction, unless you count the increased homelessness due to shutting down long-term investments in savings and home mortgages, homeowner insurance increases in Florida beyond belief, deregulation, ripping off of employee pensions by CEOs and Republicans who stole the money to fund their 1000% increase in their revenues, and supply-side economics which has caused centralized control of business to the tune of destruction of small business, the fact the longevity of life in America has decreased below the Canadian model with its single-payer universal healthcare plan, Americans pay some three times as much as Canadians for healthcare and into the corrupt big pharma and health insurance businesses, destruction of FS&Ls and replaced with credit cards controlled by banks at the detriment of consumers (when someone cancels a credit card, they get their FICO score lowered), and………

All of this stuff began with Reagan who claimed “government is the problem.” So, if we think “we are on the wrong path,” then go to hell if you think that overturning what Reagan did to this nation.

Fact. A diabetes med in the 1960s was deemed to cause heart attacks. In the 1970s OUR GOVERNMENT, under FDA, advised doctors NOT to prescribe it. That was a good thing, but had no “teeth.” Doctors did not stop.

As a result, it caused the deaths of many Americans until, finally, in 1984 the FDA took it off the market. Yes,

In his 1981 inaugural address, Reagan claimed the government was the problem. Why? Perhaps because REPUBLICAN Nixon did not put teeth into enforcement towards limiting a prescription?

Take a larger look at this. It was Republican Nixon who was head of the government when the FDA did the “suggested” limited use of the med. Furthermore, it was Southern Dixie white supremacist Jesse Helms who also blocked Nixon from creating rehab centers for those on illicit drugs and stop the war on drugs. Racist bigot Helms was the bastard who blocked Nixon’s efforts to create small black businesses in North Carolina. It was Dixie white racist Helms who maneuvered to get the original Star Trek series cancelled due to a Martin Luther King Jr. approved inter-racial kiss (it put William Shatner on the street living out of a pickup truck). If anything, America applauded when Jimmy Carter and the Democrats took control in 1976 and all of a sudden Star Trek came back in movies and with The Wrath of Khan.

Mr Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet, WHO REALLY WAS THE PROBLEM? Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet worked to bring more and more white supremacist Dixie bigots into the Republican Party, plus to pave the road for fascist bigots with lots of money, like Rick the Prick Scott, Ron DeSantis, Mitch McConell, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie what’s her name, and others (as well as the Koch brothers) INTO the control of the Republican Party (Trump, too).

Now we have to listen to the bullshit of a commercial which says nothing about how we got to this point. The advertisement merely implies, by saying we NEED to make a better path in the USA, sound as if President Biden and the Democrats are at fault, not Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet and the Republican bigots with their “anything goes” friends like Rand Paul among the anarchists we like to call libertarians who likely do nothing to speak in favor of socially progressive ideas and push for centrally-controlled business-controlled nationalized business corporations which end up being nothing more than like a government-controlled centralized economic organization with communes.

These Car Shield commercials push panic buttons for a purpose. To help Republican leaders take over the government and shove down the throats Car Shield (and Chick-Fil-A) for putting hatred into the control of our society, whether that hatred be puritanical bastards who are against black people or gay people. There was a day when Americans could afford small business services called auto mechanics. Today, we are forced into nationalized companies like Car Shield. So, therefore, Car Shield has to defend its business with panic-button commercials such as those I heard this morning.

Goddamn it, I lived during a time when there was an oil embargo, gas prices soared and we worked to get around it, rather than blame Nixon and the Republicans. We developed car-pooling and other means to get around the high oil prices. Sad to say, but in those years, big corporate giant, GM, put a startup electric car business in Cortland, NY, out of business. That was bullshit on the part of GM. But somehow we did get by. We also had people who had been born in the late 1800s who did not like food stamps. Rather than use food stamps, they would consume only Quaker Oats oatmeal or even cat food. I took one woman to lunch various days at Phil’s Chicken House, a chicken in the Binghamton area which was a successful alternative to big corporate nationalized Kentucky-based KFC. The chicken was also from a mainstay in Upstate NY cooking, used at church and fireman’s days picnics. The recipe came from Cornell University. Most importantly, during the embargo, when my transmission went on my used car, my father could afford to find another one and get it replaced, by local mechanics. He did not have to rely on a big nationalized business like Car Shield. Car Shield takes advantage of big nationalized corporate business. It should NOT be allowed to put commercials on television which push the panic button to sell their services.

The reasonCar Shield (or even Chick-Fil-A) imply the Democrats are at fault is because they know that Joe Biden wishes to re-regulate big nationalized businesses and has made it known. Companies like Car Shield, Google, Microsoft, Spectrum, and others are all cowards running scared of the results. Car Shield gives fake panic buttons to Americans. Wrong. Chick-Fil-A bumps up its commercials because they are anti-gay and think the only way to have a successful family is to be heterosexual. Goddamn Chick-Fil-A for promoting that and not saying this in THEIR commercials. Let me tell you how a heterosexual marriage helped to destroy the idea of a family. Go to hell with traditionalist freaking lousy puritanical thoughts. People who say, “we don’t like it if there is someone somewhere having fun and happiness in life, unless they follow their dictatorial ways of a hateful god.

All of this needs to be stopped, as bullshit artists screw to the American public. It is called moderate, not in terms of politics, but in MODERATING what is being presented. This idea is not an idea to push censorship.

The government is not the problem. In fact, in order to protect voting rights, civil rights, human rights, the government plays an important role. Case in point, the diabetes medication which statistics demonstrated the number of deaths due to heart attacks. These panic-button-pushing commercials imply that the government run by Democrats is a problem while Republicans are above the law and are not the problem. Human rights. Human justice. It’s not politics, stupid.

There is a travel show which quotes Mark Twain. The quote is related to what I am saying.

Mark Twain:

β€œTravel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
