Sharing Is Caring

Well sometimes if you are very blessed you get to see something that you have believed be proven correct right before your eyes. I have been a proponent of local politics first and our political training and attention should be such. Today I had the blessing to speak with a young person that is deeply concerned with the direction of our nation. They are worried is we are even going to have a nation. The rapidity of its’ decline is concerning for sure. They have a great deal of knowledge and passion but did not know where to direct the energy.

The national picture in Washington DC is frightening for sure but there is a reality about one’s effectiveness there. It is my thought that politicians and media have most of us howling at the moon most of the time. A process that may cathartic but does affect any positive change. I always offer a local option to folks. Local takes less money and fewer people.

In my last Tea Party rally speech, I remember telling the crowd to start going to school board and county commission meetings. Coming to a rally hearing speeches and hanging out is great but it is not activism. There were about 1000 people at that rally and my suggestion was that 50 of them show up at the next school board meeting. I promised them that the school board would take notice. It would be non-media event and they would learn a great deal about what is really going on with local education. And here in Florida those must allow for public comment. Seems like a perfect plan to plant the seeds of freedom and liberty while encouraging local politicians into more correct behavior. But of course, it never happened, and our school district is a dysfunctional as any in the country. The same plan should be going on at city council meeting and county commission meetings. This is one of the things that the left does much better than those on the right.

So as our conversation continued I “quizzed” them on some local names. They had a firm grasp on the horrors of HR1 but was not well versed on the local scene. So, I suggested getting up to speed on the local scene as is there are numerous progressive items and the like to work against just minutes from their home. I assured them that digging around in the slime that is local politics would be as frustrating as anything they would experience in Washington DC with one main difference. They might be able to effect positive change here locally. That is the point, right?

It made my heart smile when we were saying goodbye, I was thanked for spending time a passing on some wisdom. It was confirmation at that point to me that this is/was the missing piece. The passing of wisdom and the willingness to mentor. This is not a quick fix, but it is the best fix! We must make ourselves available to young people and people that are like mined.

Covid Vaccines And Making An Educated Choice

It has been a year we have been dealing with Covid-19 and all the things that surround it. We have dealt with travel bans. We have dealt with lock downs. We have suffered through the endless news stories and press briefings! We have dealt with sickness and loss of precious lives. Now it is something else, it is always something else.

December 2020 rolled around and bazinga! Covid-19 vaccines were heading our way! Hallelujah, we are saved! Or at least this what some of you thought. That is until you did some reading on how this first vaccine worked. We are all used to the “hair of the dog” vaccine approach, but this thing is new. That gave some of us reason to pause. But now when we pause for ourselves, we are labeled science deniers and anti-vaxxers.

But what we are really doing is deciding the action our own body. Funny how the left says abortion is a woman’s choice about her own body BUT we do not get the same energy when it comes to vaccines that we put in our own bodies. My advice to people is to consult with their own doctor and come up with a course of action that is best for them! Sunja Gupta is NOT your doctor. Deborah Birx is NOT your doctor. Tony Fauci is NOT your doctor. So, make an appointment with your doctor and have a conversation. Do this especially if you have already had Covid-19. And after that conversation decide about your body for yourself.

You need to resist social pressure to do this or that. This is about your health and your body not anyone else’s. If you choose to get a vaccine know as much as you can about what you are taking. Let your doctor know that you are doing so. That way they can monitor you progress through the process. This is a personal decision not led by fear, guilt, or social pressure. Make sure you know as much as possible and make what you think is the best decision for you!!

For Public Consumption

I have waited a while to share thoughts about the events of January 6th in Washington D.C. I am of the mind this was psyop on the American people. Normally I am not the big conspiracy person but this is different. The left did not just want to get rid of Donald Trump they wanted to create a scorched earth scenario.

The left had been saying for weeks that it not be enough to beat Trump in an election it was vital to destroy his supporters too. The left’s goal was to break the back of those that supported President Trump. Government law officials knew for weeks of plans of anti-government groups to attack the capital and did nothing. Trump asked Nancy Pelosi to order up 10,000 national guard. That request was denied. Protest marches are nothing new to DC and the combination of Metro police and federal law enforcement are well skilled even with much larger crowds. Which it is at least suspicious that an unarmed rag-tag group of miscreants could breach one of the most secure buildings in the nation.

What American adult believes those is this photo had an opportunity to bring down our Republic?!? I know that Nancy Pelosi and her ilk still refer to this mess as an armed insurrection but, the FBI testified before congress that there were no weapons confiscated and no shots fired other than the one that killed Ashli Babbet. So that would trash the “armed insurrection” narrative I guess.

What happened at the capitol on January 6th was allowed to happen. And it was for public consumption. It was a was to besmirch those that are supporters of Donald Trump. It gave the go ahead for social media giants to shut down conservatives because their speech could spawn more violence. It gave Democrats an opening to erect the razor-wire fence around the capitol to remind of of the “danger” of Trump and his supporters. This is just theater for public consumption.
