Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, etc.


I’ve thought about this quite a lot and I think the “Holy” men have it wrong. They stand in their churches or synagogues (or their corners of the sidewalk) claiming to have the knowledge of all God’s creation.  Some claiming that the very souls of their listeners will be saved if they will but come forward and repent of their sins. Saved from what? Why Satan and the fiery pit of hell, of course.

Further, they will be rewarded by “eternal life” in “heaven” a place where the streets are paved with gold and everyone, if they are good, becomes  an angel and sits around playing harps all day. I can only assume the music lessons will be free since I don’t know that many people who already know how to play the harp. Even the tone deaf should be fine with this since they will have all of eternity to learn. I’m speaking, of course, of the religions of most of the western civilized world.  I’m not real familiar with the exotic eastern religions.

Now, stop me if I’m wrong, but if you point at the sky, any where in the sky, indicating heaven, aren’t you actually pointing at the universe?  I mean, scientists have sorta figured out that there are actually billions upon billions of stars and planets “up there.” But no one, as of now, has spotted any streets paved with gold or angels sitting around playing harps.

It also occurs to me that with all the deep drilling and exploration of the earth’s subterranean depths, someone, somewhere should have noticed Satan,  Actually, I think he would be one pissed-off dude for being disturbed by all that noisy shit coming from top side if he were down there.  If he is as bad a dude as he’s made out to be, he would have already kicked someone’s ass for doing that.

I’m not trying to make light of Pastors, Priests and Rabbis preaching, well, then again maybe I am a little, but I will say that the typical Sunday School story, with all its embellishments, from the pulpit is just a little too thin for me.  Further I will not believe that an omnipotent God, the creator of this universe, could ever be explained by mere mortals in such simplistic terms.  It’s just the height of human arrogance to think otherwise.

In writing this I’m not being blasphemous in the least, To the contrary, I do fully and whole-heartedly acknowledge the existence and presence of God in and of this life.  I do not acknowledge the “Holiness” of those guys who dress up in their various costumes  and hats preach the gospel. Many of them make large salaries for working less hours than most part-time jobs in the rest of the world. Of course they want to be seen as “Holy Men,” otherwise they’re out of work.

CNN & Chris Cuomo


CNN likes to bill itself as “The most watched net work.” That is just an unmitigated lie. It is a well established and documented fact that FOX is the most watched net work.  Further it likes to characterize Chris Cuomo as a reporter who, “Asks the hard questions.” That’s only true if you are mentally retarded.  Cuomo asks questions in a threatening and demeaning tone. None of which have particularly difficult answers. His specialty is to question slow, dull witted people so he can appear to be bright. Lastly, he rarely reports the news, he just editorializes.

SOTU v. Democrats


Trump’s State of the Union speech was, in my opinion, an excellent forward looking speech. I do NOT consider myself to be a “Republican.”  I am a hard and fast Independent.  I will not EVER permit either party to tell me how to think or how to vote. Having said that, it was a sheer joy to watch Nancy (Sour Puss) Pelosi’s face during the speech.

The cliché about a picture being worth a thousand words was most appropriate.  If Nancy and her crowd hated it, then it must have been right on target.  It wasn’t at all what they wanted to hear because it didn’t serve their agenda.  They want more and bigger government with them controlling it and indeed controlling our lives.

Harry Truman and Franklin D Roosevelt must be spinning in their graves, to borrow yet another cliché. The Democratic party of those two giants has morphed into something that is a disgrace to the institution. Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the Presidency went down in flames even though she had huge support from the main stream media and spent more than a billion dollars trying to win.

Trump appears to be trying to do things that will benefit the common working class people of this country, not things that will “grow” the government. That’s what the Party of Truman and Roosevelt did.  I was only a child when Franklyn D. and “Give ’em hell” Harry were in office, but I know their stories well and am grateful for what they did for the country.  At my age, it won’t mean much to me, but I am sure it will help my children and grandchildren if Trump does what he talked about.

As far as I’m concerned, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can both eat s@#t and die :>)

I didn’t get any of it, did you?


Barack Obama caused the U.S. government to borrow fifteen TRILLION dollars from China. That’s more than ALL of the U.S. presidents BEFORE him borrowed combined! In case there’s any confusion about what that looks like, I’ll write it out numerically for you:  That’s $15,000,000,000,000,000.  Yep, it’s the number fifteen with fifteen zeroes after it. I guess maybe he figured the number fifteen with fifteen zeroes after it had a nice, symmetrical feel to it.

Could he do it without so much of a “mother may I,” from anyone?  You bet your sweet bippy he could and did! I didn’t get any of it, did you? Now, maybe the check’s in the mail, but I sorta doubt it, after all, it’s been more than a year now.  Also I can’t recall ever seeing any explanation about what the money would be spent for, did you?

If anyone out there knows where it went please let me know, or better yet let me know why he’s not in prison or dead.  I don’t have much use for politicians. In my opinion, they all steal, but Obama went way over the top into the stratosphere with his thievery of the American people and he’s still living like a king on the American tax payer’s dime.  Is no one EVER going to ask questions?  Is it really buried that deep?

“US” by Paul Genova


A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges’ assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all. – Justice Antonin Scalia

“US” by Paul Genova
(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016.
I haven’t said too much about this election since the start…but this is how I feel….

I’m noticing that a lot of people aren’t graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.

In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.

Some are apparently “triggered” because they are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.

How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!

You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.

You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.

You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.

You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.

You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created “us” when you attacked our flag.

You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.

You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.

You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.

You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

You created “us” the silent majority.

You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.

You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.

You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”.

“YOU” created “US”.

It really is just that simple.
Everyone needs to see this. Post and resend.

I am amazed…


You know it’s the beginning of a new year and I will soon be 75 years old.  Over those 75 years I’ve seen a lot of strange things in this world. At one time in those years I wrote for a newspaper.  After that I wrote the news scripts for radio station announcers and I also did the news for a television station.

I was taught, and I practiced, that the news is reported exactly as it happened.  If you wanted to put your particular point of view on the news, then you called it an editorial and you could spin it any way you wanted to.

What passes for “news” today is virtually ALL editorials.  Television “journalist” report the “news” according to their particular political persuasions. I think perhaps Donald Trump may have illustrated this very well when he said if he walked on water, the media would report that Donald Trump couldn’t swim. Understand that I am not a big fan of Trump. In his first year as President he has been caught making false or misleading statements almost 2,000 times!

That’s not a very good track record for the leader of the free world.  Why does he do it? I think it’s because he believes that any thing he says is true by virtue of the fact that he said it. Yep, pretty amazing.
