This Chinese Virus has everyone on edge. It has separated the masses. People have picked sides Some jab and some don’t. Some double mask and some don’t. The only thing we seem to agree on is that we don’t agree. What are we so afraid of? Death? Not one of us will be able to escape death. It’s the closing of one chapter and a beginning of another. Maybe you are not prepared to die. That’s a different discussion for another time. In September 2015 I had a heart block. I was in a coma for six days and when I woke up they told me I needed a pacemaker. I was weak and had to learn how to eat again. My mother was spoon feeding me applesauce. I required physical therapy in order to be able to speak again. I needed to be moved to another hospital for the procedure and right before I was to be transported I was given Last Rites.
Funny thing about coming out of a coma is what you take for granted every day. A cup of hot coffee in the morning. Feeling the fresh air from the outside. A simple moment with a pet or family member where you say nothing but just enjoy each other’s company. None of that happens when you are in a coma. We don’t realize how blessed we truly are. I was raised Catholic and a priest came to my room to administer last rites. They weren’t confident I could get strong enough for the procedure. Mother was with me during Last Rites and oddly enough I didn’t have any fear. I was completely at peace. Perhaps it was because I was truly helpless and realized I’m not in control of my life. None of us are. I believe there will come a time when you realize this and once you do you also will experience an amazing feeling of peace and closure.
Fear is not your friend. Fear leads to paranoia and stress. Fear is destructive and sadly fear is everywhere in the world right now. Wear a mask. Stay at home. Get a vaccine. Get another vaccine. Get a booster. You see how ridiculous this is? They are using YOUR fear to promote their agenda. If you are afraid then you are weak and vulnerable and you are not paying attention. Don’t let fear distract you from what is happening in this world. Question everything and demand proof because people will and do take advantage of others. Fear is the enemy. There isn’t a vaccine or a mask to protect you from fear. Faith always conquers fear. Faith restores clarity and control. Don’t let fear influence your life or decisions. Make the changes you need to make. Thanks for reading. 🙏🙏🙏
Danny’s widely popular podcast DANNYLAND! returns this month!!!
I watched about eighty-percent of the Kim Potter trial and was sure she would be home for Christmas. I was shocked when the jury found her guilty of manslaughter and this serves as a warning to all Patriots. It’s clear that we as citizens have to rely on defending our own freedom against the uprising of crime that is running rampant in our nation. If the Police end up in jail for doing their job then they are going to be leaving the force at a rapid pace. It’s already happening. Kim Potter made a mistake. Daunte Wright was a wanted fugitive that decided to resist arrest and flee the police. He was a career criminal and he wasn’t on a path to turn his life around. Kim Potter was a decorated officer with twenty-six years of experience. She never intended to kill Daunte Wright. She grabbed her sidearm instead of her taser. Human beings are not perfect. Apparently now we incarcerate people that make mistakes unless of course your name would be Alec Baldwin.
Criminals don’t want to change. It’s the only life they know and they are always looking for an opportunity. The “guilty” verdict in the Kim Potter trial gives them an opportunity. They see the weakness in our country. The lack of prosecuting true criminals and the “woke culture” has severely weakened law enforcement. Jurors now live in fear of having their safety and the safety of their family compromised if they do the right thing. The judicial system has been compromised out of fear. I NEVER would call the police if my safety was in jeopardy. I have taken the steps to defend my property and family and I would encourage you to do the same. Sooner than later you will pick up the phone to call the police and they won’t come. Don’t think that can happen? Did you ever think we’d be wearing face diapers for two years and telling people they need a jab or they can’t work out or get a piece of pizza?
Crime is coming to the suburbs. It’ s already started. It makes sense. People in the suburbs have nice things. Criminals see that the laws are not being enforced. Why not go to the suburbs and grab some nice stuff? What are you going to do when that happens? Pick up the phone to call a social worker? It doesn’t have to be this way but this is just what this country has become. The system is messed up. We elect our prosecutors. Why? We are the only country that does this. Many prosecutors are more concerned with making sure the voters are happy instead of doing their job. I wouldn’t wait for the government to get it right because they certainly aren’t headed in the right direction. A New Year is on the horizon but let’s be realistic. Look where we are and look where we are going. 2022 is NOT gonna be a lot of fun. Make sure you take time to prepare.
Last week was the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. 2,403 Americans were killed that day as we were dragged into World War II. We put our differences aside as a nation and came together to fight back and defeat the enemy. What did we learn from that day? Apparently not a damn thing. As of this writing almost 800,000 Americans have died of the Chinese Virus and we haven’t done a damn thing in response to this attack. Just because there aren’t explosions, fire and structural damage doesn’t mean we weren’t attacked. China is a very bad nation that will kill its own citizens. Do you still believe that this virus came from a man named Hop that was munching on some bat meat in Wuhan? If ya do then ya probably think Jussie Smollett likes to go to Subway at 2AM when it’s ten degrees below zero in Chicago.
I have nothing against the Chinese people. They are victims as well but in times of war there will be collateral damage. There are so many questions out there about this virus. We don’t know the long term effects of the virus or the vaccine for that matter. The only thing that is certain is there are many people dead in the world because of a biological weapon that was created in a lab by the Chinese government and no one has responded. Sanctions? Really? That’s like putting a kid in “time out” that just broke your nose. China is thumbing its nose towards the entire world. Four years after Pearl Harbor was attacked we leveled two major Japanese cities within a week. Sometimes force has to be met with force.
So what DO I expect our response to be? Well you can start by calling them out to mankind. China has attacked the world. Say it publicly and demand answers and complete transparency. If they refuse then they have to prepare to accept the consequences of what I consider to be an act of war. We have become a nation that lives in fear. If someone breaks into your house you don’t just look the other way and hope it doesn’t happen again. That’s not the way it goes in my world. You find out who is responsible, get your shit back and make them pay so it doesn’t happen again. We need to respond. We need to retaliate. What we allow we teach. No reaction sends a message to those that live in the world of evil. Stop the delay and start the response.
Danny’s widely popular podcast DANNYLAND! will return in 2022!
I watch and read a lot of news. I probably spend ten hours a day consuming various forms of media and the common denominator I have discovered is they like to preach fear, disaster and doom. Take the Gabby Petito case for example. People go missing every day. Couples fight every day. Why did the media jump aboard this particular story? Simple. She was pretty and white. If she was fat with a chicken foot coming out of her head no one would pay attention. The media is a business. The media wants to make money and for that very reason their journalistic integrity is compromised.
I did morning radio for twenty-one years. I was on various music stations but I like to talk and entertain so I rarely played any music. Technically I was part of the “media” so I know a lot that goes on behind the scenes. I still have many friends in the media and they are good journalists working for a compromised company. You dare question anything the bosses in corporate media say and you will be blackballed from the industry. I’ve seen it happen many times to many people that are now selling real estate. The pressure to deliver ratings is there every day twenty-four hours a day. Precision, integrity and accuracy do NOT matter. Good ratings mean higher advertising costs and more cash flow and that is all that matters.
So NOW we have a new variant for the Chinese Virus called Omicron. It’s HIGHLY transmissible. Oh no!! I better stick my head in my mattress and order from Grub Hub for the next six months. We had “fourteen days to flatten the curve.” We have three different vaccines. Some come in two doses. All require boosters. New boosters are on the way. People vaccinated are still wearing masks. You are a HERO as a health care worker in 2020. You will be fired in 2021 unless you get the jab. There is a vaccine mandate! Now the mandate is on hold because it’s tied up in court as unconstitutional (which it is). I’m not trying to make this about the vaccine. Do what ya want. That’s called free will. I use the vaccine as an example of how the story is constantly changing with the media. They are being used for propaganda and are so caught up in satisfying Wall Street they don’t give a damn about accuracy or the truth. They want clicks and tune-ins. I’ve been in those meetings. I’ve heard the marching orders and I can talk about them now because I don’t have a horse in this race anymore. Finding the truth requires time. You have to do the research on your own. Gather as much data as you can and THEN decide. If not then you are just another sheep in the herd.
Danny’s popular podcast DANNYLAND! will relaunch in 2022! There is a very good reason he has had to be silent. 👈👈👈
I spent twenty-one years hosting a morning radio show before hanging up the headphones in 2011. I understand the concept of marketing and promotions and have watched social media evolve. Sometimes evolution brings about positive change but I’m afraid that social media is heading in a negative direction. It’s breaking up relationships and ruining people’s lives. The rules have changed and you don’t do that in the middle of the game without facing resentment. There are many platforms in social media but the one that disturbs me the most is Facebook.
I really enjoyed Facebook when I joined in 2009. It was a great way to connect with listeners and catch up with old friends from high school and college. It’s also a great platform to try out “content.” Post some comments, observations and news stories and you can see what interests people by their interaction. I also have made “cyber friendships” with many people on Facebook that I have never met. I like to interact on topics and various discussions. I enjoy seeing the pictures and the videos of people on vacation and during their personal time. Like most things that are enjoyable it eventually turned into a money machine and that’s when Facebook stopped showing the love that it was receiving. Mark Zuckerberg originally created Facebook as a platform to rank women on the Harvard campus in 2003. In less than twenty years he has become a very rich man with an amazing amount of political clout because social media influencers have that luxury in 2021. Zuckerberg has been trying to change the rules of Facebook for years and it’s reached a point where you will be silenced if you don’t align within the political parameters of the Facebook regime. I’m a Libertarian. I’m Zuckerbergs worst nightmare. I’m a HUGE proponent of freedom of speech, limited government and the right to bear arms. I don’t believe in concealed carry. We already have that right with the second amendment. Facebook does NOT care for people like me because I am a free thinker and will not be told what to do, say or believe. Facebook has evolved into money making machine. They “shadow-ban” those that don’t drink the Kool-Aid. The abandoned the mission statement. They took their popularity and compromised their integrity. I still see them as a vital social media platform as they continue to have an amazing amount of engagement in the upper demo albeit their long-term future reeks of failure as the younger demo flocks to Tik-Tok and Instagram.
I stopped my weekly podcast back in March for reasons I will disclose in January 2022. I’m about to relaunch it soon and I need Facebook for the connection and promotion. That makes me a hypocrite and a realist. A podcast is truly a platform that cannot be censored. They can tell you what to say, how to say it and when to say it when you sign a contract with a media company. That’s not hypothetical that’s reality. I watched it happen. NEVER give up your creative freedom. Always control your content. Great content translates into great VALUE. I don’t make money off my podcast. It’s more of a connection and therapeutically beneficial to me. I could not even imagine what I would say if an employer approached me about a social media post they didn’t agree with. We all are free thinkers and independents. We absorb knowledge and then form an opinion (at least that’s the smart way to do it. Reactions come from anger and emotion). When you are chastised for what you believe then we no longer live in a free world. I have not defriended Facebook because I still see a purpose in it that benefits me. I’ll do my best not to be squelched on that platform for reasons of self promotion. MySpace shit the bed in 2008. I don’t think Facebook is far behind. Remember when you let social media control YOU…..the YOU have lost control. Thanks for reading and please be my friend on the evil Facebook.
DANNYLAND!! the widely popular podcast will return soon!!!
Remember when ya didn’t have to worry about offending someone when speaking? I still live in that world and I have lost many of my “woke friends” that think I’m insensitive and caustic. Comedian Dave Chapelle is under a lot of criticism for his recent special “The Closer” on Netflix. Transgender folks are demanding an apology. I have not seen much of Dave Chapelle’s work so I obviously was drawn to this story. I needed to see what the controversy is all about. I watched “The Closer” and I can’t seem to find what the controversy is all about.
I grew up listening and enjoying the comedy of Sam Kinison, Richard Pryor and George Carlin. They made fun of themselves and others as well. Comedy isn’t mean to be kind. Sometimes it can be very brutal but it’s comedy. This isn’t someone promoting a public agenda. These are entertainers making astute observations. The transgender population is very hyper sensitive about the observations made by Dave Chapelle about their chosen lifestyle. Three words: Get over it. If you look like the Brawny man and insist on wearing a plaid skirt, size thirteen pumps, a blouse and a wig then ya better be prepared for people to make fun of you. You chose to make yourself the center of attention so quit your complaining for what you created. Everyone is a victim. Everyone is misunderstood. I’m tired of it and I’m not playing this silly game.
I’m part of the “I don’t give a shit” mentality. I will say what I want about who I want when I want. I am not a mean person. I want the best for everyone. I don’t like to create problems I like to solve them. I will NOT, however, give up my freedom of speech in fear of offending someone. If you are offended by what I say or believe then that is your problem to deal with. Why do I need to take a sensitivity class because I refuse to kiss the ring of compliance? These are terrible times. Border crisis, pandemic, inflation, vaccine mandates, out of control crime, etc. If we ever needed to laugh the time is now. Usually things get better with the passage of time but during my life it seems we hit a peak in the late 80’s. It all started with political correctness. Instead of putting a stop to that nonsense we let it grow in the petri dish until we became “woke.” America has turned into a six year old crying on the playground. No one respects you and everyone feels sorry for you. That’s not my country. Time to take off the sundress and frilly frocks and grow a pair.
Danny’s controversial podcast DANNYLAND! will relaunch soon
I haven’t blogged in almost two months because I couldn’t believe what was happening. I thought time off would allow me to focus and get a new perspective. Boy was I wrong. The dumpster fire continues and a line has been drawn in the sand. People are picking sides and this is only gonna get worse. YOU will end up picking a side. The Federal Government and the media are making those that choose NOT to get the jab seem to be selfish and irresponsible people. I have been chastised because I have not yet gotten the jab. People I have known for years have turned on me. That right there tells me all I need to know about those individuals. Vaccine mandates are the last straw for me. It makes zero sense to anyone that truly understand the Constitution.
Luckily I am retired. I don’t have to deal with this in a work environment. I have a pacemaker. I also have had a heart ablation. Myocarditis would be a death sentence for me. I don’t want the virus and exercise caution in my daily routine. I take elderberry, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Magnesium and Quercetin. I don’t socialize outside of my home. We don’t know the long term effects of the jab. A year from now there could be millions of people having a foot growing out of their heads. One jab. Two jabs. Booster jabs. Where does it start and where does it end. We went from fourteen days to flatten the curve to people losing their jobs over their freedom of choice. That’s very dangerous and a battle cry for many. Police are being fired for their freedom of choice. What will happen in Chicago when a third of their police force is eliminated? They can’t control gang violence and criminal activity now. It’s gonna increase ten fold with a vaccine mandate. Seattle and Portland will collapse like a card house in a wind storm. A mandate for a vaccine puts you in one group or the other. The resistance has already started. People will NOT comply or back down and they shouldn’t. The sad thing is once again this is a conflict that does NOT have to happen.
I’m not against vaccines. I’m getting my flu shot next week. I choose what I put inside my body. No person, business or government is gonna tell me what to do. I did morning radio for twenty one years. When I was told what to say, when to say it and how long I had to talk, I was miserable. A LOT of radio companies are mandating the vaccine for their employees. I would NEVER work for someone that took away my freedom of choice. Back in 2015 I had a heart block. I was in a coma for five days. I should have died but was blessed with some amazing visions of the next level (whatever that might be called). A job will not love you. A career will not define you. Houses, cars, boats and money mean nothing when you die. Our time here is very short. At the end all you have is your soul and your family and hopefully your integrity. Talk to your doctor and do your research and make your decision. Get ALL the vaccines at once. That’s YOUR decision. That’s YOUR freedom of choice. Change your profile on Facebook. Put a sticker on your shirt saying ya got the jab. I couldn’t care less. When you start bringing your agenda to my front door there’s gonna be a problem. There are millions of people that feel this way.
You force a mandate and there is gonna be trouble. I don’t like problems. Especially ones that can be prevented. You can only kick the hornets nest so many times before you end up getting stung. Fourteen days to flatten the curve. Wear a mask. Lockdowns. Curfews. Vaccine one. Vaccine two. Booster shots. We put up with constant contradictions and rule changes. When you tell me that I cannot go to a certain restaurant unless I compromise my freedom of choice then there is a big problem. The hornets are pissed and they will not allow it to happen. I could be wrong but I haven’t been yet.
Danny’s popular podcast DANNYLAND! will be relaunched soon.
I have been on Facebook since 2009. It’s a great way to keep in contact with my former listeners and radio colleagues. I like getting updates from my high school friends. I also think it’s a good platform to promote my podcast which will return this fall. I never post anything that is vulgar nor do I use profane language. I mention this because I am currently in Facebook jail for another thirty days. This is my fourth time Facebook has put me in jail. Facebook has an agenda and it’s censorship. You either kiss the ring and drink the Kool-Aid or they will shut you down. This should be alarming to anyone that uses social media.
So what did I post this time that warranted my influence on social media to be punished? I posted a news story about Hunter Biden losing a SECOND lap top. I also added the coy comment of “He’s the smartest man I know.” Apparently making a comment about the left makes me a threat to community standards. The leader of the Taliban is able to tweet on Twitter but I can’t upload a picture of my new dog on Facebook for twenty eight days because of an opinion. The last I checked we all have free will however that is slowly being eviscerated by various social media platforms that we support by posting great content. We are in a precarious position right now. Social Media is a great marketing tool but when blatant censorship comes into the formula I start to wonder if it’s really worth it.
I should have seen the censorship agenda that Facebook has a year ago when they banned this blog from being shared. What are they afraid of? I don’t have an agenda. I don’t care if you agree or disagree with me. What we all have is an opinion. Facebook seems to think that your opinion must match their agenda or your opinion will be censored. My silly little restriction on Facebook will be over in a month but I won’t change my approach. The more that Facebook tries to change me the more I am convinced that they are part of the problem. When I relaunch my podcast in the fall I will be using Facebook to promote it. I don’t think that makes me a hypocrite. It just illustrates how bad of a relationship I have with Facebook. They use me and I use them. It’s like a Larry King marriage. It’s not a matter of “if” it will end, it’s a matter of “when” it will end.
I’m glad that I never have had children. I may die alone but I could not handle the guilt I would feel in bringing another human being into a world that is so divided and filled with anger and hate. I was raised as a Catholic. My Mother is very religious and says the rosary daily. As a kid I was bored with Church. I took the Confirmation name of “Peter” NOT because of the famous disciple of Jesus it was because of Peter Criss the drummer for KISS. I am NOT a practicing Catholic yet I am a Christian and my faith is very important to me.
No one will live on this planet forever. That’s not part of the plan. We are not the ones that are in charge. There is so much more beyond this level. I believe this is the true definition of “faith.” I did not always feel this way. People change as they get older and wiser. Twenty years ago I believed the stripper named “Sable” that was hanging upside down on a brass pole during a Motley Crue song, while pursing her red lips through her black roots, loved ME and it was just a coincidence I spent a hundred bucks on table dances, a shitty t-shirt and a bad golf hat. It cost me a lot of money and a lot of friction but like they say “Knowledge is power.”
I’m a Libertarian. Do what ya wanna do but don’t expect me to join you. I’m not a sheep. I may not understand what YOU wanna do because that is called FREE WILL. Don’t buffalo your ass on my property and preach your agenda. It’s not your business what I do. In return I am not gonna parade my beliefs into your world of delusion. NO ONE deserves that. We have forgotten that we operate under the nuance of freedom. A small man in a medical jacket convinced millions of Americans to put on a mask, run in their basement and hide from the world for a year and a half. How stupid was that? What was the benefit? Is this world REALLY one that we want to live in? The crime? The hate? The riots? The shootings? What am I missing? What’s so wonderful on this level that puts everyone in fear of catching a virus that has a minimal chance of ending your life? Turn on the news. Inform yourself. We clearly are NOT living in utopia. If life were a game of Monopoly we would be living in a cardboard box and pissing in a pickle jar on Baltic Avenue.
As I write this blog the “Fear Police” are back. Oh No! Not another variant??? What do we do?? Mask up and run back to the basement until Dr. Foochi says it’s okay to have an ice cream cone? If that’s what YOU want to do then have a good time. I will continue to live my life without fear and accept my own destiny.
