I’m fifty-six years old and enjoy being on social media. I have a twitter account, am on Facebook, do a weekly podcast and of course I have my blog that I thank you so much for reading. I mention my age for a reason. I’m not sure of what exactly happens on Facebook but all of a sudden some of my adult friends have been acting like a bad scene from “Beverly Hills 90210.” I understand that these times are tumultuous and people are on edge but why would anyone get angry over the opinion of someone else? If you are confident of YOUR belief then shouldn’t you feel sorry for the person of different opinion?
If you are familiar with Facebook then you are aware of how to drop “friends.” You highlight their profile, click on the mouse a few times and they are now eliminated. It’s quite similar to getting a ride home from Aaron Hernandez. Facebook teaches you a lot about who your “true” friends are. One weekend, as a kid, my father was in the basement saying “fuck” a lot. That meant he was working on the washing machine. Dad liked to give life advice while he was doing this so I made my way into the utility room. Within five minutes Dad told me; “You watch…later in life you will be able to count your true friends on one hand.” Then he lost his grip on the ratchet and slammed his hand against the agitator and yelled “Son of a Bitch!!!”
A few days ago I was looking at my friends list on Facebook and noticed more than a handful of people had “dropped me as a friend.” I was taken aback at first. I used to work in the radio business for close to thirty years. Some of these folks were colleagues and people that tried to HIRE me. I paused…took a breath…..and thought back to what my dad told me when I was a kid. Then I laughed and said “Son of a Bitch!!”

These are turbulent times my friends. I took a moment to shut off the news and reflect upon my journey in life. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. I have become much more aware of that fact as life continues to pass on by. I was an only child and I was a handful. I challenged everything someone would say….a trait that continues today. I had wonderful parents…thankfully Mom is still alive today. Times were different back then. There was no such thing as “time out.” Each of my parents had their preferred punishment weapon. Dad liked the belt and Mom knew how to work that wooden spoon.
I still shudder at the sound I would hear from the kitchen when I would push Mom too far. The opening of the drawer beneath the microwave…then the sound of her fumbling through the kitchen utensils….suddenly the noise stops…..she has found her weapon of choice….THE WOODEN SPOON!!!
She spins like Wyatt Earp at the OK Corral….we make eye contact….she raises her weapon (which oddly enough was being used to stir spaghetti sauce just twelve hours ago) and makes her approach to “teach me a lesson.” I immediately run towards the circular dining room table. I use the table like a blocking sled to stay away from her boisterous advance. Suddenly I trip in my “stocking feet.” Mom straddles me like a LA cop. All of a sudden I feel like “Rodney King Light.” Good thing I ran Mom around the dining room table to tire her out. She only beat me for about ten minutes. Then she stood up and said “I’m gonna reheat yesterday’s spaghetti…want some?” Compared to 2020….that seems pretty normal to me.

I spend a lot of time on the internet. I read a lot and do a superfluous amount of research and it just doesn’t add up. Many polls have Joe Biden with a ten point lead as we approach the two week countdown to Election 2020. It doesn’t make any sense.
If you have listened to my podcast then you are well aware of the allegations against Hunter and Joe Biden. I told you about this in March of 2020. It now appears that Joe Biden used his drug addicted son to launder money from Ukraine. Is that a surprise to you? That’s just one of the reasons the swamp needs to be drained. How come the Biden camp has not refuted the existence of the laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter? I have been accused of things I did not do and I made enough noise to wake the dead.
Sleepy Joe tried to use the Chinese Plague as an excuse to hide in the basement and to stop the successful Trump rallies. Trump knows how to adapt and he started doing rallies outside at various airports. The sight of Air Force One behind the podium as he speaks to the massive amount of supporters gives me chills. Thanks for helping the Trump brand, Sleepy Joe.
Look….Trump is an acquired taste. He’s not for everyone but I go to sleep at night knowing my President will protect the United States of America and protect our Constitution. I don’t have to worry about him making backdoor deals with countries only for personal benefit. If Joe Biden does not care about his drug addicted son then why should he care about you?? He shouldn’t….he doesn’t….and he won’t!!!
Last Friday was very emotional for anyone that has a heart and a conscious. It was the nineteenth anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center by Islamic terrorists. One of my most vivid memories of that time was actually September 12, 2001 and beyond. No one cared about what color your skin was or what God you worshiped. There was one race….the human race. People were flying American flags outside their cars. Today there are those that choose to burn and stomp on that very same flag. The police and fire departments across the nation were hailed as heroes. Today they are randomly attacked by members of Black Live Matter and Antifa. I’m tired of the disrespect and rioting and vandalism. Our country has been taken over from within by various social terrorist organizations. There comes a time when people have had enough and they start to fight back to protect their family and property. That time is now.
It’s not going to get any better until we get tough. This past weekend two Los Angeles police officers were shot in the face for doing nothing but protecting citizens of their city. These thugs and animals then proceeded to block the entry of the emergency vehicles to the local hospital while yelling “We hope they die.” This is not “protesting.” It’s the deepest level of barbaric behavior that has no place in a civilized society.
How many more buildings will be set on fire? How many more stores will be destroyed? How many more members of the Police will be injured during these senseless criminal activities? What we allow we teach. It’s time for this parade of fools to end. Let’s take back our country. Let’s really show others that we never forgot!!
By now you are aware of the huge “controversy” involving what President Trump said to author Bob Woodward in January 2020 about the Chinese Virus. The President “played down” the threat of the virus so he would not “panic” the nation. Isn’t that what a great leader does in times of turmoil? You want your leader to be calm and decisive as they take on the threat to our nation. Can you imagine what would have happened if Joe Biden was in charge? He would be on the floor in the Oval Office screaming for Jill and another bowl of Farina.
As an American citizen you want to go to bed every night feeling confident that your family and loved ones are safe. We don’t need to know everything. People are screaming and punching each other over a stupid mask. Some folks ran into their basement in May and have not been seen since. I’m not confident in the common sense of this misguided nation so the last thing we need is too much information. When the President shut down any travel to and from China you should have figured it out. That had never been done before. If you got off TMZ for an hour you would have realized that in order for Trump to make that move there was something going on. The President was severely criticized for this decision but in hindsight he saved thousands of lives. Only Donald Trump could save lives and upset people.
Once again the media is looking for a story that isn’t there. Perhaps they should ask Joe Hiden why he was talking about Corvettes and Chevy’s yesterday when he was at a Ford lot in Warren, Michigan. These are turbulent times. I firmly believe the future of this nation is dependent upon the upcoming election. Your Constitutional rights are in jeopardy. We no longer are waiting for the Revolution to arrive….it’s here and I’m confident we have the right President to be calm and to beat it.
In these times of conflict and disagreement I am confident we can all agree on one thing: We’ve never seen a shit show like this in our entire lives. I remember when I was in college and I was a “rebel” and anyone over the age of thirty was disconnected with reality. The truth is I was young, immature, uneducated, drank shitty beer, had a 32 inch waist and a full head of hair. What I didn’t have was a man friend that had to wear a bra and put electrical tape over his freaking nipples. You are not “expressing yourself.” You are an attention whore that wants people to stare at you while wondering “Are those really tits???”
This is ANTIFA. They are bad people that don’t bathe, refuse to work and enjoy the smell of urine. Everyone has the right to peacefully assemble. The key word here is “peacefully.” It’s not a peaceful situation when you are walking down the middle of the road with your other friends that smell like urine and you’re shooting fireworks at cars. Cars go down the street. They have for years. If you do not desire to be struck by the aforementioned vehicles then I would suggest moving your man friends in brassieres to the sidewalk. Make sure not to step on any dirty syringes that your social terrorist brothers and sisters may have dropped when launching a brick into a Saks and then taking a Gucci bag while screaming something about oppression.
Let me continue this honesty parade by addressing ANTIFA/BLM: you are NOT victims. You are criminals and an embarrassment to your family. There’s a reason why you are 25 and still not sitting with the grown ups on Thanksgiving. Here’s some advice from DANNYLAND: Put down the clove cigarette and the green hair dye and pick up a job application. Teenagers ride skateboards. Adults drive cars. Why not try being home before the sun goes down? That’s what people do that don’t like tear gas. You sleep on a freaking mattress….you don’t set it on fire and kick it down a street while trying to balance your backpack.
I could go on but Hillary Clinton just showed up wearing latex gloves and wanting to go for a “quiet walk in the park.” I’ll be putting electrical tape on my nipples and looking for my will.
Every night when I go to bed I tell myself that “tomorrow will be different.” I wake up, turn on the news and see that another building in another city is on fire and it’s chaos in the streets. I’m not a huge fan of the police. They are underpaid and lack sufficient training not to mention they have no idea on how to handle anyone with a mental illness but they don’t deserve to be attacked by a bunch of criminals. I understand being upset with law enforcement but you just can’t go around committing crimes because things didn’t go your way. It’s not all about YOU!
For some reason this blatant criminal activity has been allowed to happen. This only encourages the barbaric behavior to continue. The police need help. They need to make a statement. They need to regain the streets. They need the National Guard. The problem is the National Guard has to be activated by the Governor of that particular state and what is happening is Democratic Governors will not make that call. In other words, they would rather sacrifice the safety and lives of the citizens that elected them for their own partisan beliefs. That’s just pure evil.
Sports teams are not playing because they are appalled at the shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man from Kenosha, Wisconsin by police this weekend. I don’t have a problem if you want to change the world but that’s not your mission. You are supposed to run fast, jump high and sweat a lot. You don’t like making millions of dollars? Fine….just quit the team, move to Tibet and stand on your head with a freaking llama. Let me know when Angelina Jolie shows up to adopt another half dozen kids.
Americans are now shooting Americans. The country is imploding from within. Let me offer you some advice to stay alive. If you don’t want to get shot….stay away from people that are throwing rocks, burning buildings and breaking into stores. If for some reason a police officer tells you to “stop” don’t keep trying to get away especially if there are three active warrants for your arrest. It’s also a bad idea to grab an officer’s taser before ya run away. Before ya know it shots will be fired and the local Wendy’s will be on fire.
Our cities are under attack. Black Lives Matter is a social terrorist group with it’s roots deep in the fermentation of evil. A statement needs to be made but it’s not up to us to go downtown wearing camo pants and playing Rambo. The enemy has nothing to lose. You have a job, income, friends, a family and most importantly….you don’t rely on a skateboard for transportation and you don’t smell like urine. If they happen to walk up your driveway…that’s a different story. I’d let ’em have it, pressure clean the driveway and then call the medical examiner. Be safe out there!!
Let’s just review some of the things that have happened since the beginning of the year 2020. Put on a mask. Stay at home. Stay six feet apart. Close down the country. Call “criminals” “protesters.” Get people used to virus testing. Change rules over night. Allow people to tear down statues and deface government property. Prosecute citizens for practicing their Constitutional rights. Apologize for history. Set up check-points. Let citizens have a taste of what it is like to depend on the country for capital. Eliminate small businesses through a financial crunch. Shut down religious gatherings. It’s not even the middle of August and all of the aforementioned has already happened.
I fear that in many ways it is already too late. I’m fifty-six years old and am clearly playing the back nine in life. I don’t wanna be bothered. I wanna be left alone. I have a few things left on my list in life. Number one is getting my eighty year old mother out of Florida and back here in Cleveland with family. I never used to think that way. I used to sneak out of the house as a kid just to get away from her. Funny what happens when you get older and seek wisdom.
I thought I made the correct decision in choosing Willoughby, Ohio as my final destination. I was wrong. Corruption and deceit is alive and well here in this small town. Is it everywhere and we never noticed? Where should you look for it first? Is it already too late?? I wish I had the answers because I clearly missed the first round of questions.
Funny thing that happens as you get older….you actually do get smarter. Knowledge is the key to faith and in order to obtain knowledge you have to seek wisdom. When you are open to obtaining wisdom you must realize that you may understand things that used to confuse you and your opinions on “things you have figured out” might just change. That happened to me recently on my view of the death penalty.
I recently took a two week sabbatical away from the news and social media and I read the Bible. Parts of the Old Testament were not easy for me but it answered a lot of questions that I had been pondering. I used to be for the death penalty but now I am against it. First of all the criminal justice system fails more than you know. A LOT of people incarcerated are the victims of a bad judge, a greedy prosecutor and an inexperienced defense attorney or a combination of all three. If innocent citizens are in jail then there is a pretty good chance an innocent life has already been taken.
You may argue in the Bible it says “An eye for an eye.” It also says “Turn the other cheek” and “Vengeance Belongs To God.” We are not God. We should not play God. For these simple reasons I believe life was given by God and shall be taken by Him as well. Thanks for reading.
