Waiting for his shoe to drop

December 15, 2018

10 years ago, the President of the USA was George W Bush.  43 visit to President of Iraq included a press conference.  Our history is full of odd and curious characters.  President 43 did know how to duck!

This may seem like a trivial incident.  However, it is the essence of our attitude that our president did not miss a beat and laughed it off.  The President of Iraq did reward the shoe attacker with customary imprisonment and beatings familiar to citizens of Iraq. This shoe throwing “journalist” became a celebrity for his act of barefoot defiance.  The USA press made this shoe incident another reason to belittle our president who guided our country through the worst terrorist attack in our history.  For some odd reason, no USA commercial news media hired the shoe thrower after he left prison and fled the country.

Bush got his shoe

This journalist was sort of like Jim Acosta in his technique of throwing a question at the president.  President Bush did not take his shoe back home as a souvenir.  Security tore the shoe apart to determine if explosives were hidden inside.  The fickle finger of fate gave notoriety but no payday for Muntadhar al-Zaidi. He owns a little footnote in our history only recognized in this obscure blog posting.  No movie deals or TV invitations on Jimmy Kimmel ever dropped any coins into the piggy bank of al-Zaidi.  If anyone has any interest, than please send me money that I might decide to send to Muntadhar.  I am learning how to copy the Clinton Foundation scam.



Something to smile about

December 12, 2018

Smirk and nobody cares.  Smile and everybody shares.  It’s old but true; “When you’re smiling” the whole world smiles with you.  James Francis Durante was the self appointed ambassador of humor and smiling.  He was so popular that his catch phrase on stage always drew a laugh; “Everybody is trying to get into the act!”

During our Depression everybody was looking for any kind of hope and good news. The composers of When You’re Smiling are Larry Shay, Mark Fisher and Joe Goodman from 1928.

In our Great Recession of 2008 there were no happy tunes to lift anyone up. The closest positive mood music was #18 on pop charts.  The artist is Natasha Bedingfield and the song is Pocketful of Sunshine.


Rascal Flatts and Natasha Bedingfield did collaborate on several songs together.  Nashville music did try to stay connected to the our country while the majority of  2008 “hit songs” were not inspiring or uplifting in dark times.

I know how to smirk but it is a reaction to the sour discovery of a fake imposter.  I genuinely smile when greeting and meeting people.  If somebody proves to be fake than they have lost my smile.

AntiSocial Digital Media

December 9, 2018

Before you read this Blog, be sure your cell phone is fully charged and your  iPad too!  There are a thousand Tweets, a hundred Facebook live video postings, and a dozen emails from nobody you know are waiting for your attention.

Digital technology provides a lot of avenues to transmit communication.  Only 1% of the Digital Stuff does GOOD!

Politics is a great way to waste time doing nothing!

The empire builders in digital media usage are; GOOGLE (aka Alphabet), Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Since converting to being a Curmudgeon, I find more reasons to avoid digital media because it annoys and never satisfies anything.  Dumb television programs like Rocky & Bullwinkle, and Gilligan’s Island are now revered because they are more entertaining than the homage rethreads dredged up too many times.  How many doctor/hospital series can we take without anesthetic?  How many police shows are there?  I am ready to watch a cowboy show again, maybe.

Who feels guilty and compelled to “like” every stupid Facebook posting ?  I recognize some folks posting are self centered thin skinned and insulted if anyone ignores another whining and complaining update.  Twitter has amazing numbers of followers on some people posting Tweets.  Some of these Tweets are informative with attached news articles.  Too many Tweets are rants to join in uprising or reprisals.  I do laugh at the political slanted calls to action from professional politicians who dredge up old junk from their  Swamp.

I will focus on my childhood quest to wait up for Santa Claus!

All aboard to enjoy riding the rails with Santa Claus!

Lethal Software Can Kill You

December 6, 2018

Back in the old fashioned days of commercial aviation, no plane would go into service without a training course for the crew.  It seems the new enlightened age of software and computer assumes the program writers can do no wrong.  The new Boeing 737 jets have of course the latest and newest software to assist pilots in control of their aircraft.  It is criminal that new jets were put into service without actual flight time, but only computer time.  

The earlier version of flight assist controls had a simple way to cancel the computer control of the jet.  Simply pull up on the flight control yoke and the computer canceled control.  The flight crew of the doomed Lion jet pulled up on the yoke close to a dozen times as their aircraft continued to ignore manual control until it crashed and ended the lives of all on board.  There was a way to cancel computer control, but obviously they did not get practice and instruction on the NEW COMPUTER CANCEL COMMAND.

I hate computers.  I hate software upgrades.  Looking at a computer screen gives me a headache.  I hate my iPhone.

The passengers on the doomed flight did not die from an accident or ignoring safety procedures.  They died from new software.  (Of course I will NEVER get into a Tesla automobile.)  Their lives are gone.  Their families grieve.  The digital upgrades continue to pile upon everything.  This is one of the reasons I live in the Northwoods on a lake.  If the technology ever fails, we can continue without losing our lives.   I prefer to drive an old car as long as the mechanicals can function.  I may cancel a trip if the weather is too challenging.  It’s not worth dying to get anywhere.

UC Berkley aids CARAVAN

December 4, 2018

Student government of UC Berkley was threatened by threats of riots if there is no aid for the Honduras marchers approaching border from Mexico into USA.  The Student Government voted for aid.  The amount is $1,500.00?

Talk about throwing a penny into a beggars cup.   Give aid, or shut up!  I pledge to donate $1,500 for their Social Studies Department to create a chair for HOBO Studies.

Tijuana mayor estimates the current environmental damage by caravan to his community will need over one million dollars for restoration.  Nobody seems to care about the environmental havoc from this caravan leaving many tons of human waste and garbage in their wake.

We the people do not want illegal aliens!

The Hobo Jungle meeting of November 30, 2018 was in spitting distance of the campus of Berkley.  It was unanimously approved that Uncle Stosh will carry the kids $1,500 into Tijuana.  He will seek to hand over the money he didn’t spend to anybody named Joe in the caravan.  Alert the campus security that Uncle Stosh will need a police escort so he won’t get robbed while on campus.

Do not ever hold a fund raiser in Berkley because the communist utopia crew is too damn greedy to hand out any of their dough.  This post relied upon the great journalism of @celinedryan and this hobo nonsense is not endorsed by this reporter.

Mars welcomes USA InSight

November 26, 2018

205 days ago, InSight was launched by NASA to land on Mars.  Today, we have landed!  It is amazing that Elon Musk launched his sports car to Mars and now we have a scientific probe on this planet.   But what about the Martians?  Do they appreciate all this attention?

We have not set up an orderly system to allow Martians to invade earth.  We are just showing up on Mars, expecting a big welcome.

Mars ready to blast Bugs Bunny!

Now that we have invaded their planet, we must prepare to accept their visitors.  Bernie Sanders will offer them lifetime free income.  Matt Damon refuses to return to Mars because that movie was a bust.  

Marvin gets mad at earth.

Freeloaders fleeced USA

November 16, 2018

News Media gave 3 charity scammers entrance into your mind across our USA.  On November 17, 2017 you could not miss seeing these three thieves who stole charitable donations from good hearted citizens into their own pockets.  Now one year later, there are many mad citizens who relied upon news media to accurately report and investigate fantastic claims that brought a tear to many an eye.  It may finally dawn on the American public that news media will buy any story told on a city street corner without checking anything.

This fairy tale bait was taken hook, line and sinker by lazy news media.  A good hearted homeless veteran, who despite being down on his luck, handed over a $20 bill to a young YUPPIE lady to buy gasoline in a “bad neighborhood”.  Forget that most single gals have at least 3 credit cards.  Forget that she did NOT have access to her cell telephone to whine and plead some friend to help her out.    After all, it is on Facebook!

Thanksgiving is a great time to plead for donations and sympathy.  This nation has a lot of love for our citizens.  Even illegal aliens invading the USA demand sympathy and hand outs just because they want us to feel guilty over our happiness.  So we are now one year after this fairy tale unravels as the thieves argue over the spoils from their scam.  

John Bobbit Jr., Kate McClure and boyfriend Mark D’Amico staged a heart tugging story that never took place at a neighborhood gas station.  There are no “reporters” on commercial media television.  They have glamour boys and girls with makeup and hairdressers who look good.

How many poor citizens are suffering in silence without Facebook Go Fund Me?  Today it may finally dawn on everyone that our news media are only repeating gossip and never investigate if their story is accurate!  These 3 thieves concocted a story that did not smell right but was promoted by copycat news media all running with this scam.

Now is the time charity fund raising needs to be investigated.  We all know that charity theft is a national epidemic because of lazy news media who do not want to bother working to verify and search out additional sources to confirm facts.  The Clinton Foundation has used about 1% of their raised money on charity.  Let me assure Slick Willy and Queen Hillary with Princess Chelsea that news media will never ever investigate why Haiti hurricane relief from a decade back has yet to help those still suffering in Haiti.

Three free loaders wanted a free ride paid by donors to Go Fund Me based on a fairy tale to tug on heart strings.
Charity Thieves Thrive

CNN and Ali Baba 40 Thieves

November 14, 2018

Do children today sit to listen to a story anymore?  As an old curmudgeon, I am a fan of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves. 

Press has gone MAD!

I will spoil the secret trick of this story by revealing the password to enter the den of thieves by saying; “Open sesame!”

Children were forced to enjoy a program that never explained the origin of their name in this blood thirsty tale.  The 40 thieves reigned terror by killing and stealing across their community.  Learning the secret password to enter their protected cave was the entry for Ali Baba.

Now we are being robbed as tax payers by a new gang of thieves for CNN.

Jim Acosta lost his White House pass by being a boor who demands to be treated as royalty.  News flash:  CNN has press pass to White House for 50!

The expense and extra wasted time by our executive branch for CNN and their 50 thieves is paid by USA taxpayers!

Why does the lowest audience rated network have a right to spend a disproportionate percentage of our tax dollars?  They are a for profit business that makes money by gumming up our government under the guise of reporting while stealing anything not sealed and protected.  CNN is taking our government to court by suing to demand a White House pass so Jim Acosta can make advertising revenue for CNN by acting like a clown.  We need press passes for NETFLIX, AMAZON, and DISNEY.   Mickey Mouse and Goofy would be better reporters than Jim Acosta.

I have started a Jim Acosta Fan Club.

So far we have less than 50 people who care anything at all about Jim Acosta.  I deserve a White House press pass for my club members.

Jim Acosta Fan Club is open!

November 8, 2018

Now is the time to elevate our level of parody and sarcasm.  We extend our hand out to Jim Acosta to join in the spirit of understanding his brilliance.  We also want to make some easy money by exploiting Jim Acosta through a fan club created strictly for profit off his bad boy reputation.  Banned from the White House is awesome street credential.

You can find his fan club page on Face Book.  Jim has not authorized or endorsed my intent to exploit and profit from his popularity.

If I can include some Troll from Russia for money, then I am sure Facebook will not mind.

Broken Warriors Back Home

November 8, 2018

One of the stupid expressions loved by 44 was; “No boots on the ground!”  A unique military strategy was announcing well in advance planned withdrawals of our troops from foreign battle fronts.  This gave plenty of time for planning reprisals against local civilians who aided our USA troops on the ground.  However, the dirty secret of President Obama was the excessive use of battle weary warriors to get back into the battle front for endless repeated tours of combat duty.

Nobody is a superman.  Watching friends and comrades fall in battle or from “Improvised Explosive Device” tests the limits of sanity.  Obama allowed Iran to prosper and kill our troops by exporting IED technology.  My son came home from battle but he had too many killed or maimed buddies.  5 or 6 consecutive combat tours of duty does permanent harm to your sanity.  These military were paid little for their duty and they were treated like slaves by our commander in chief.  Obama had no problem forcing military into constant battle front assignments.

Instead of using selective service draft for military duty, it is more popular for election to avoid the trauma of worrying about getting drafted.  The volunteers in military had to bear the burden for our country.  The burdens were heavier with the help of Obama.  His “rules of engagement” were drafted by lawyers who never knew combat.  Every battle front assignment included a legal check list to be followed before protecting yourself.  Drone killing orders by President Obama had no restrictions against killing civilians when claiming victory in blowing up a target.  Soldiers on the ground had no such freedom.

Obama gives us HOODWINK

October 27, 2018

USA celebrates our former president has returned to warn the citizens, illegal aliens, and foreign infiltrators in our land of our greatest danger.  Obama was focused like a laser in his greatest speech ever delivered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  It is great to see the master of Jihad on stage again.  His smirking smile and ISIS finger wagging are endearing.

His dire warning is to protect all of us from the mortal danger of HOODWINK.  There is LYING in the executive office of our White House.  OMG!

Chicago politicians know how to bust heads, pillage campaign offices, blackmail opponents, and the old standby of stealing an election by stuffing ballot boxes.  It seems we need to accept Obama as the master of honesty?  Whatever happened to Russia stealing our election?  Did Russia collusion just disappear in the swamp of Washington, DC?  That was our greatest threat and the reason to never trust President Trump according to commercial news “reporters” and the DNC brain trust.  How quickly we forget the conspiracy theories and warnings to never trust a Republican.  Obama is convinced the nation was drunk when we elected our 45th president.

What the country needs is a return to the old fashioned honesty of Obama.  “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan.”  There was not a “smidgen” of bias nor political targets in the IRS refusing to recognize Republican organizations as legal.  Who can forget the great success of his Economic Stimulus Plan?  We miss the good old days of wasting millions in Solyndra after it was already failing and entering bankruptcy.  The BP oil spill response by Obama was a slow motion comedy of errors.

Hoodwink is a word used 200 years ago.  The Twitter realm will be at a  complete loss to comprehend the horrors of hoodwink.  He predicted it.  Now it is coming true.  We have to finally say; “Thank you, Obama?”  Nobody worries about hoodwink except Obama.

Halloween costume contests

October 18, 2018

It is time to get ready to dress up in your favorite Halloween Costume.  In my childhood this was a very important occasion.  Kids today face the same challenges and delights.  Nothing is more amazing than seeing hordes of kids out after dark wearing costumes and knocking on your door shouting; Trick or treat!  Cheap skate curmudgeons could not hide from Halloween.  My favorite was going into a big apartment building and knocking on doors.  They thought they were safe from kids.  Some refused to answer but many handed out change because they had no candy supplies.

Hollywood and television had cowboys everywhere when I was a kid.  Before I was born, there was a famous cowboy who amused and entertained the USA.  Will Rogers was amazed that his comments on life and news made him a celebrity.  The politicians were worried this cowboy was roping their legs while the public laughed.  Nobody wants to be a joke, but his words rang true!

john_wayne_Rio Bravo

Rio Bravo showcased the Duke.

The Duke was my hero!  He also had a quick wit that skewered pompous blowhards. “Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid!”  Will Rogers was not as abrasive; “Never miss a good chance to shut up.”

The biggest problem in the USA culture today is the death of cowboys.  The myths, legends and folklore are not dead in the hearts of kids.  Hollywood and television wants to entertain families without sharing our cowboy heritage.

I enjoyed watching The Cisco Kid.  Mexican cowboys had more bling, to use a term from the last millennium.  I enjoyed his sidekick Poncho, who was always a step behind the quick witted Cisco.

We need Cisco and Poncho back to fight the bad guys.


Klaatu Barada Nikto, Gort

October 5, 2018

Science Fiction fans know The Day the Earth Stood Still from 1951.  A visitor from another galaxy, Klaatu came to Washington DC.  Donald J Trump might as well be from another galaxy, because he speaks a foreign language misunderstood by politicians.  He does speak English and his words are plain spoken.

Klaatu had a secret command to help save the earth from destruction by his robot policeman, Gort.  The Democrats do not know the secret phrase or the extortion threat that can stop our 45th President.  It is entertaining to watch the frenzied paid protesters.  We did see during the 2016 the campaign many mob thugs destroy cars, beat up Trump supporters, and even throw eggs at a lady because she dared to support Trump.  Mobs did not scare away Trump supporters.  The RESIST guerilla army grow more desperate every day as President Trump enjoys laughing at their futile temper tantrums.

Gorth 1951

The premise of inventing a peace keeper robot is the science fiction solution to avoid mob protests or armies invading countries for conquest.  The robot is not afraid because it is a machine designed to prevent and destroy threats of human aggression.  The robot will not cry or cringe at mobs protesting a peace keeping robot.

There is a circus sideshow event that is distracting us from our real problems.  Women are inventing emotional stories to block the Senate vote for a candidate to the Supreme Court.  There was no witness to confirm anything bad happened.  Grown men and women were studying the candidate Kavanaugh year book from high school and his calendar of personal appointments in the summer of 1982.  Senators demanded explanations from this candidate on what did he mean as a teenager when reading these items.  I feel guilty that I never wrote and kept a calendar from my high school days for inspection by senators.  However, I am sure the senators can gain great knowledge by reading my blog!

Trump Rooster

This golden rooster in China bears a resemblance to Donald J Trump.  It is more entertaining than the massive baby balloon designed to belittle and mock our president in London.  Nobody finds the daily whining and complaining as funny.  We recognize predictable complaints as boring.  The protesters have really overstayed their welcome in the Propaganda News stories every day.

We need to build our own Gort to handle the morons who want to kill our president and any supporters for our president.  Send them to Wakanda!

Wakanda image

Wakanda welcomes protesters?  They kept their country hidden from crazy white people.  Open borders is not even discussed in Wakanda.


Were You Born Yesterday?

September 24, 2018

There is an epidemic of stupidity across our great land!  There is a cynical attempt to manipulate public opinion by pretending to be “one of us!”  The greatest danger we face today is trusting anyone who pretends to be sincere.  Fortunately, we are smart enough to smell a stinker.  Our greatest threats are hiding in plain sight because they claim they are “one of us”.  Deceivers demand our sympathy and support by their calculated pleas for our acceptance.  Chiselers always want a short cut and have no patience to actually work.

One of my favorite movies about our USA was released almost on my birthday!  Born Yesterday made fun of politicians seeking more contributions to stay in office and become rich.  Judy Holliday was an average working girl who jumped at her chance to get on easy street with a rough tough greedy junk man.  The irony in this plot was that the brute junk man was ashamed at how stupid his dame acted in the Washington DC.  He pushed shoved and insulted anyone who did not make him more money.  Any obstacle was bribed or shoved out of his way.  He gladly bought the services of a polished suave insider to polish up his dame.

The premise and the promise of this movie affirms everyone has the ability to confront bullies.  We need to rely on our trust in the principles that founded our great USA.  When things seem darkest, then the light from our heritage shows our way to freedom.  Our election campaign for our 45th president affirmed my faith in my fellow citizens.  People will always second guess decisions, but nobody questions our love of country when we cast our vote for president.  The 2016 election turned nasty with a candidate calling us Deplorables.  

Now it seems obvious to me that many on the losing side, are now posing as devout Trump Train ticket holders.  Just take a moment to review the profile of everyone on Twitter.  There are a flood of me too people who claim to have endured the propaganda attacks hurled at my fellow Trump supporters.  I do not follow anyone who only jumped onto the Trump Train after the victory of our election.  It is easy to become a supporter of the winner, after 2017!  I do not bother following anyone opening their Twitter profile in 2017 or after.  I was laughed at.  I went to campaign rallies to see candidate Trump and walked through protesters.  I have turned off my television to all late night comics who heaped scorn and “jokes” about our president.

It is predictable.  Twitter accounts want followers by pretending to be one of us.  I was not Born Yesterday.  Twitter accounts opened 2017 and later have not suffered the slings and arrows to get our president elected.  I do not choose to let swamp rats steal my cheese.

Let the good times roll!

Hurricane Florence & Volcano Pele

September 13, 2018

Kilauea Volcano 2018 aHR0cDovL3d3dy5saXZlc2NpZW5jZS5jb20vaW1hZ2VzL2kvMDAwLzAzNy8zODEvb3JpZ2luYWwvcHV1LW9vLmpwZw==

The volcano activity on Hawaii continues, but this news is not news video theatre.  All of the cameras and adventurous media talking heads are breathlessly showing surf scenes and predictions of doom.  The biggest influx of equipment and people is from every news organization to be offering exclusive video about something on Hurricane Florence.

anthonywilson_160x200  Anthony Wallace of ABC news in Raleigh, NC has to fight the invaders army of reporters from every news bureau around the globe with their video staff to report on his locale.

This is a predictable waste of our time.  Intrepid reporters brave the storm to get blown over with gales of rain.  The home news desk will have talking heads safely sitting in their studio offer great advice; “Please stay safe! Please!”  While of course the studio crew expect more gruesome horrible carnage for us on their next video clip from Florence.  Advertising rates go up for bigger audience numbers during hurricane events.  Even people in the desert country of Arizona and the mountain country of Utah watch hurricane reports.  There must be some legal form the hurricane reporters must sign to absolve the news agency of any liability if their reporter is drowned, blown off the equipment van, or gets drunk in their hotel room.

Now ABC sent their “weather girl” Meteorologist Ginger Zee to take on hurricane Florence on the front line of the flooding and desolation.  She defiantly defended her decision to become a hurricane fighter.  She did understand that her family may be worried about her safety, but being on national video getting drenched in a hurricane is vital for our country and her career.  Her husband will suffer at home watching football, eating pizza with their 2 sons and playing cards with his buddies.  Of course we can track her adventures on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, & ABC.

When will news media send their reporters into space?  Out of this world future is near.

Wife made money writing about murder!

September 12, 2018

Widow Nancy Compton from Portland, Oregon wrote about killing husbands.  I do not know how many women or men bought her books.  I will check my wife’s library to see if I am future target!  Looking at her kisser, I must confess I would have left Nancy to let her stay home alone a long time ago before she chose to kill me.  She was arrested for murdering her husband.  If you constantly plan out murdering husbands, then can it be a crime of spontaneous anger over his annoying habits?

There is a comedy in this somewhere.  I know in our little community, a stupid and selfish husband attempted to kill both his wife and their child at home by fire at night.  I am suspecting that her motivation was similar to our local idiot.  She didn’t want to divorce and give spouse any share of their property because greed kills.

A more entertaining fiction is the film; How to Murder your Wife.  


The Jack Lemmon character succumbs to love and lust by giving up his pampered bachelor lifestyle by marriage to his exotic and affectionate wife.  She dares to change his life by cooking and loving him as well.  The personal butler Terry Thomas will have none of that, and threatens to leave.  The comic situations are captured in the comic-strip life of Brash Brannigan a cartoon character created by the husband.  His comic strip murder of his wife sets in motion a tumultuous resolution but without mayhem.

Most murders are not a surprise.  Her dead husband would have been better off getting divorced and away from her.  Now the citizens of Portland will be paying for her room and board for the rest of her life.  She will be writing now about how to break out of prison a lot.  The guards should keep their eyes open!  I do expect future rallies for her release and character assassination of her late husband to justify some sympathy because she does live in Portland!



Spartacus in our Senate?

September 8, 2018

This was a week of magical revelations by the Democrats.  Rising up to challenge the approval of Supreme Court candidate Judge Kavanaugh stammered Senator Cory Booker that he is ready to be Spartacus!

Immediately every senator stood up to shield him from attack by all shouting; “I am Spartacus!”  Actually, nobody stopped the confused senator from braying like a donkey.

Senator Booker bill to legalize marijuana

Precious time was wasted by the publicity hound senator as he agonized over his revelation that he did release to the public an already public document.  His demanding a public uprising fell far short of the actual history from the revolt by the real Spartacus.  His fellow senators seemed bewildered and amused at his melodramatic self aggrandizement.  The public is confused if this senator has a grasp on reality.

All during the Kavanaugh hearing the paid protesters kept interrupting the Republican senators while not one Democrat senator was interrupted.  It would seem a contrived conspiracy to undermine only Republicans just might implicate a Democrat plot.  Mueller team should have some free time.  They made their big hits on Russia Collusion.  Manafort while working with Podesta did elude and evade taxes on money they both made from Russia and only Manafort was found guilty.  Popadopolis was sentenced to Jail time 14 days!  He pleaded guilty to lying to FBI on what cocktail he drank in London.  Yes, it was a gin fizz!  Mueller has Cohen in his sights to go to the big house for swindling and lying!  It is unheard that a lawyer would ever stoop to cashing in by cheating his client.

Finally returning from exile, Barrack Hussein Obama unleashed a flood of his comments full of sound and fury but not a word stuck in the headlines.  He continues to confuse everyone by saying a lot of nothing.

The conspiracy hatched by Senator Durbin was unveiled in the Senate hearing as well!  He proudly confirmed that being exposed by a reporter’s tweet was true.  He held a secret gathering of Democrat Senators on who would keep interrupting and confusing Republican Senator Grassley to delay any business getting done.  It is well known that Durbin is so incompetent, Democrats chose Schumer as their minority leader instead of the moron from Illinois.  Why did Durbin let Booker just swing in the wind with his stupid Spartacus moment?


Durbin wound his turban too tight and cut off blood to his brain!

Finding Joy While Grieving

September 6, 2018

When the worst happens, then the world loses balance.  We were to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary, when my wife collapsed at work from a brain aneurysm.  When I arrived at her Chicago office for a prominent oral surgeon, she was not there.    All looked solemn and told me she was at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.  This was 1985.

I met her mom by the emergency admittance level.  The lack of information shared by staff made me more concerned on Carol’s condition.  Then the hammer dropped.  She was on life support and not responding.

This was the month of May.  I was not going to become a lounge lizard living at a bar.  I bought season tickets from a buddy at work for the Chicago Bears.  I also got 3 season tickets by subscription to Chicago Bulls.  I spent my free time at Soldier Field and at Chicago Stadium.

I had no expectation of anything great from Monsters of the Midway.  Life is full of surprises when you do not expect them!  The preseason games showed average performance but there were sparks that got my attention.  The season showed a unique ability to find a way to win in the early games.  Then it dawned on Chicago, that this team can do it!  They became a team feared for aggressive defense designed by Buddy Ryan.  The offense surprised that they did not only rely on Sweetness Walter Payton.  The best media attention was reserved for Da Coach Mike Ditka.  I knew and loved him from his playing days as tight end on the team he was coaching.

The words of Walter Payton in his autobiography; Never Die Easy “When you’re good at something, you’ll tell everyone.  When you’re great at something, they’ll tell you.”  I did see this great team grind through the season and reach the pinnacle of success in New Orleans for the Super Bowl.  I knew Carol was watching and cheering every step of the journey.

The cast of characters was wild.  Dan Hampton was Danimal.  Mike Singletary was Samurai.  Saturday Night Live made a regular feature with comics posing as a group of typical Chicago types sitting around a bar making boasts and toasts to Da Coach!

My employer was W. F. Hall Printing Company of Chicago and my President was Edward C Nytko.  My role was in Executive Sales with my accounts of Montgomery Ward and Spiegel.  I entertained my clients at these sports events and our memories of each game remain enjoyable to this day.   I did not wallow in grief as I entered my focus on enjoying Chicago professional sports.  I always thought about how Carol would have enjoyed seeing The Fridge or being at a game with me.  I am convinced that she did have a hand in the extraordinary 1985 season for Da Bears!

The annual fund raiser for the Chicago Boy Scouts had Mike Ditka has the keynote speaker at their 1986 luncheon.  We always bought a VIP table as a sponsor and for this year I insisted to Greg Kaelin of Montgomery Ward that I wanted their photographer to get a picture of me with Coach Ditka before the event in the VIP lounge.  This is the photo.

I told Mike Ditka that I knew my wife missed being there in death, but I knew she was there watching from heaven.  He asked if I was doing okay.  I said “Yes!”  I met my current wife at a model agency open house that Montgomery Ward staff invited me to join them after the Super Bowl victory in 1986.  I never would have met Anne except for this string of events.


Bob Woodward has FEAR

September 5, 2018

The media frenzy during the Watergate Prosecution was focused on a real crime.  Now the ghosts of that era still walk this land in the empty figures of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.  Both of them lived off one story for decades as their only claim to fame.

We are supposed to be hysterical with FEAR because our president is a hard man to work with.  I do not know any chief executive that is not a hard man or woman to handle.  Getting to the pinnacle of success is like climbing a mountain.  Faint of heart people do not even attempt to start this climb to the top.  Woodward is certainly far from the top of colleagues in his profession of news media.  His claim to fame is based on creating FEAR by making the public afraid of their current president.

Trump swarmed by British press

The paparazzi and commercial news know they can be rich and famous simply by capturing one wrong move or scandal by billionaire Donald J Trump.  We are all witnessing the search for scandal from hounding old paramours to school days stories.

Woodward found disgruntled staff in White House that did not like working for President Trump.  That is it?  Stop the presses!  Everybody has to watch this?  Boring and empty hysteria is in a book because not everybody loves working with a demanding boss.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt told our country during a much more challenging danger that “We have nothing to FEAR but FEAR itself!”

WAKE Me When It Is Over!

September 2, 2018

Senator John McCain was a “Maverick”?  His boring campaign message as a candidate for president in 2008 had zero public interest.  The undertakers and publicity hounds are anxious to get back in the spot light thanks to this carnival sideshow spectacular!  Propaganda news reporters are dragging out any critic of President Trump to “Please give your opinion about why McCain banned 45 from his funeral!”  How does impeach become a automatic theme just because of a funeral?

Why did the McCain family ban his running mate that he chose; Sarah Palin?  This family is NUTS!  If John McCain disliked and abhorred Sarah Palin, then what in the world compelled him to select an unknown lady for his campaign?  Was she simply being used as a feminine figurehead to attract female voters?  I have never respected the opinions of senator McCain because he was always a smug smartass on television interviews.

McCain memorial wanted to maintain a sense of gravitas for his final farewell.  Inviting Biden and Obama to speak was celebrated as a magnanimous gesture to unite our country.  Commercial media enjoyed the political attacks aimed at 45 while ignoring how these 2 hacks lied and defamed different political opinions.  Reporters gushed how this funeral united our country while attacking our president.

Many were glued to their televisions to watch college football.  This memorial was not the topic of discussion over the Labor Day gatherings of families and friends.  NOBODY had to weep and wail about how McCain deserves his vengeance by impeaching 45 for Maverick!



I campaigned for McCain & Palin 2008

August 26, 2018

We hoped to save our country in 2008.  Green Bay, Wisconsin was scheduled for a presidential campaign stop by the Republican ticket; McCain & Palin.  My wife and I went to join the throngs of people gathering outside the auditorium Resch Center.  There was laughter and friends happy to meet their friends showing up for support.  The line to enter extended for over a mile!  I was surprised and impressed that we might have a chance to save the USA!

We did not hold much hope for candidate McCain but we did love Sarah Palin the governor from Alaska.  The auditorium was packed on a weekday before dinner time.  My teenage son was dragged along to join me and my wife at this event.

The Democrats did not want to look weak so they scheduled a Obama rally (without Biden) for a Saturday 2 weeks later at his same auditorium.  They imported bus loads of spectators to barely fill the auditorium seats in view of the stage area.  The news coverage camera angles were aimed to show a crowd and avoided the empty floor and the empty seats out of camera shot.  Of course our local news stations did show the real view and it looked like a ghost town with only a few bus loads seated for national news camera shots.  Fake News was very obvious to make Obama seem loved by Green Bay.

Sarah Palin and her husband were outdoors people who hunted, fished, snowmobiled, and did 4 wheeling around Alaska.  Green Bay has plenty of families of hunt, fish, and enjoy winter activities like snow mobiles and snow shoe travels.  When Sarah climbed the stairway up to the stage we saw she was petite and smartly dressed.  Her wardrobe was a media attacking point in addition to her down syndrome baby.  We understand how cruel and ruthless news media exploit their power to harm people.

We all loved her message and the messenger.  Let me remind the flat earth society of her simple slogan Drill baby!  Drill!  Democrat senators laughed and dismissed such a simple minded and dumbass solution to our energy problems and shortages.  Drilling would take at least 10 years before any tiny improvement would help the down trodden citizens paying through the nose for energy.  These same brilliant critics are now silent because the energy growth happened because governors used state lands to approve drilling for more oil and gas.  Federal red tape and blockades could not be stopped at within our sovereign states.  The USA is now exporting oil and LNG to foreign countries under President Donald J. Trump.  45 is expanding the use of federal land for oil and gas.

McCain Palin 2008

McCain put the crowd to sleep after Palin had everybody hooting and hollering.  My wife and I campaigned by planting campaign yard signs after visiting families around Green Bay that same week.  We knew McCain would never win.  We were not surprised at his loss.  We were sad and disappointed that Sarah Palin was kicked, ridiculed and had no peace after the campaign because she dared to speak out and fight back against media.

None of these smart ass news media folk would last a week camping out on the trail of elk or bear hunting.  Wisconsin has plenty of ladies young and old who do hunt game.  Do not make fun of our folks in Wisconsin who preserve our woods and wilderness around this great country.  Many of the firefighters in California wildfires are from the Menominee Nation who are world famous timber experts.  Game wardens from Wisconsin are guarding wildlife across our great land.

Wisconsin Democrat Senator Russ Feingold spent over 4 years with Senator McCain to pass their Campaign Finance Law!  This law was supposed to reduce fraud and abuse of bribe money masked as campaign donations.  Yeah, that really worked?  Feingold tried getting back into Wisconsin politics in this century, but voters sent him back to California.


Happy Days are here again!

August 25, 2018

Nietzsche would be impressed!  It takes a uber-mensch to take on Manhattan real estate development and succeed where hundreds have failed.  Just to make the challenge more impossible; develop golf clubs around the world too.  Who can do that?

Every golf course in the USA has a cast of characters who amaze, entertain and infuriate the club members on their board managing their club.   I made the mistake of volunteering to be part of this circus high wire act without a net.  I was a member of a small club in Illinois when my boys were of grammar school age.  They got to use the pool during kids swim times during the day, and charge to our account a lot of hot dogs, popsicles, ice cream bars and lemonades.  I could almost afford the dues, minimum restaurant monthly billing and my wife buying stuff in the pro shop she found “on sale”!

As the boys got older, and my budget was getting hammered then I wised up and decided to quit and buy a lakeside vacation home because it was cheaper!  However, we have many fond memories of holiday dinners, member parties and social events.  I am a mediocre golfer who can count the number of good shots I made on our high slope rated course.  Golf is frustrating!  I had nothing to brag about when my 18 holes were done.  I respected the prowess of our higher rated players.  Their Tuesday afternoon high stakes golf bets on the course were the talk of the club with thousands of dollars changing hands at many holes.  I could not compete nor afford gambling on my loser golf.

For 10 years of my working career I traveled to Augusta, Ga.  Things get worse for a poor golfer.  Any kid or retired guy could whip my ass playing golf out south on any course.  Everybody out South must play golf and fish.  I did enjoy walking the course to follow the greats of golf at The Masters.  One of my work mates from Augusta had me join Nick Price for cocktails and enjoying a smoke because Nick’s wife forbade smoking around the kid.  Nick’s beloved caddy Squeaky was alive then and it was fun to hear the stories about cheapskate Nick Faldo who gave his lady caddy a roll of duct tape because her gym shoe was flapping with a loose sole.  (Heaven forbid he flip her $50 for a new pair of shoes!)  Nick Price always rented a beautiful home my buddy Steve lined up for 10 days during the tournament.  Cheap skate Nick Faldo stayed at my hotel to get his free breakfast instead of renting a home.

The Masters - Preview Day 1

Cheap skate won The Masters.  

nick price Nick Price won a lot of tournaments but never did win The Masters.  I took some comfort that even the greatest golfer has to accept loss.

The club house is very humble but Augusta has every bigshot in the USA trying to get allowed in as a member.  Our billionaire 45th president is a solid golfer and his golf clubs are all 100 times more amazing then the humble club I joined by DeKalb, Illinois.

I find it amusing that Robert Mueller quit his club membership at one of Donald J. Trump properties back in 2011.  The rumor was about Mueller getting upset about how he was treated.  I have no doubt his ego is bigger than any club can handle.

Mara Lago pool

I admit that the craze has never left my blood.  I would become a member of the Mar a Lago club in a flash, if I suddenly by some miracle find my little lake side home stuffed full of cash.  However, I know that seeing an idiot like Mueller bitching at the wait staff at the top of his lungs would totally ruin my daydream.  Dreams do become nightmares.

Dying to See Chicago?

August 18, 2018

Death is walking around Chicago.  The odds of death are almost certain in known areas of mayhem.  The chance of meeting the wrong person at the wrong time can become your last memory in Chicago.  I still return to Chicago, but I am more focused on assessing risk in my selection of time and place while in Chicago.

Even as a young man living in Chicago, I chose places I felt safe and I trusted their security.  It is better to enjoy yourself where you do not think death is waiting outside.  Nobody wants to live afraid of their own shadow.  I went to a Chicago landmark I still miss.  The Como Inn was not in a great neighborhood because getting a big commercial operation makes more money with a cheaper cost of property.  However, their security was top notch and the only bad guys inside were spending money to enjoy an evening without getting killed themselves.

The head of security was a former Chicago cop who was a massive black cop who worked on personal staff of the old mayor, Richard J. Daley.  One of my business associates was a citizen of Jamaica who moved to Chicago and spent a lot of time at the inn.  William normally sat at the end of the bar by near the receptionist desk and a telephone was perched always by his elbow.  Dennis always insisted we stop by William to say hello every time we went to the Como Inn.  Shaking hands with William made me nervous.  His hand swallowed mine and I am a large man.  He could have crushed my bones easy.  His eyes always scanned like a cop sizing up what you were up to.  If he wanted to know what was going on anywhere in the city his phone connected him to his network.  I felt safe staying there until closing time and then it was safe to get into your car drawn up to the front door by the valet crew.

There was widespread crime and violence during my 1970’s.  I cannot comprehend or grasp the level of carnage let loose in Chicago now in our Millennium.  I trust my instincts to size up the joints I trust with my life based on my experiences from my younger days.  I do not trust going into anyplace I do not know.  I do not settle for convenience for me.  I will and do spend the extra effort and expense to dine at places I know are safe for me and my wife.  The hotels I select in the city must meet my security assessment for demonstrating a check in process that is secure and efficiently run to keep us from the constant traffic of visitors entering.  You cannot know when death will walk in from the streets of Chicago.

The current mayor of Chicago has no grasp on how the Chicago police force operates.  Experimenting with police activities is playing with life or death.  I do not and will never trust my life by relying on how the current mayor is managing my beloved Chicago.  I feel like I am entering a tyrant’s city who ignores the death and misery from his reign of terror.  He is evil and ignores the suffering his rule has created.

This chart was from April of 2014 on homicides on a single day.  There are not enough cemeteries to handle the victims of homicide in Chicago now.  We need a new Boy Scout Badge for anyone who gets out of Chicago alive now.  This is not funny and the solutions are not pleasant but necessary.  Police need to be allowed to make mistakes because nobody wants to volunteer to become a victim by police playing safety first.

Bernie revolution

Chicago cops got time wasted hauling out change the world protesters like the pictured Bernie Sanders claim for publicity stunt in Chicago.  Getting arrested is proof of being a genuine save the world #Resist idiot even back in the 1970’s.  Pictures of getting arrested by police proves all the socialist conspiracy fables that still circulate among idiots who do not know what it is like to live or die as a policeman in Chicago.

Do You Mind?

August 17, 2018

Many of my best choices in life were made for me.  When I heard a tiny puppy whining through our open windows on a beautiful Summer day, then I volunteered my youngest son to help me track down the puppy wandering around our woods.  I saw 2 tiny puppies meandering near our pole barn.  Their whining helped save their lives from plenty of predators looking for a snack.

I scooped up carefully one and the second was trotting to a neighbor’s property.  My son went jogging to neighbor and that puppy got put into a big cardboard box for safekeeping.  I carried in Millie into my home, and announced to my wife who just rolled out of bed that we got another dog.  Why did I decide to grow our dog pack to 3?  I have no idea.

Millie 3 months old

So how do I measure the value of love?  When you let a puppy into your home, then the mayhem and love grows quickly.  It is impossible to stay mad at a puppy, or baby!

Millie assumed she had to use 2 throw pillows for napping on our sofa.  We always had to laugh at her assuming the rights of royalty in our humble home.  She added so much to our life, including her self appointed role as skunk protector.  Her coon hound nose caught scents drifting from the woods we never smelled.  Her baying was immediate inside the house.  It was so loud our ears hurt and the windows rattled from her sonic power.  I would not let her loose, but I did hook up her leash to investigate her alert.  Then I would smell the skunk spraying way out of sight, but that scent was in the woods instead of near our home.  Everybody around us knew when Millie was warning us.

She was glued to me, since she remembered my saving her.  She was a lovable dog but was cautious in accepting strangers entering our home.  When a veterinarian confirmed my concern on her losing weight and unable to keep her meals down, then I cried and mourned her death sentence.  Taking her for the last ride to the vet remains a very painful memory.  I take comfort that I was by her side for her last moments alive.  I would never trade the memories and joy she gave us by avoiding inviting her into our lives.  The power of love is what makes life worth living.  I do not mind the tears and sorrow when those we love are gone.

This Bud is for me!

August 11, 2018

Everybody has at least 1 Micro-Brewery within 15 minutes of their house now.  Wisconsin has too many breweries.  The USA has too many breweries.  It used to be easier going to your neighborhood tavern or saloon.  Now choosing your beer is a major decision!

My first clue on the explosion in specialty brews hit me when visiting Boston in 2008.  My hotel had a massive saloon on the property with over 100 feet of tappers along a mirrored wall.  I cold not count the number of tappers.

There are many beer myths that can confuse me.  Is there a magic ingredient or a beer wizard that makes one beer the best in our world?  After a couple of beers and a mandatory piss break, the next few seem to continue in a beer groove.  Do not distract me with dozens of specialty beers!

Budweiser wagon

Yes, I have traveled to tour a couple of the Budweiser operations in the USA.  Yes, the samples of free beer were a factor!  I did order Budweiser in Luzern Switzerland at a gourmet restaurant with my new bride.  The Busch family added a bride from Switzerland at the start of the 20th century and the Budweiser beer found a new country to refresh with their brew.

Swishouse restaurant20-1024x682

I am never ashamed to order a bottle of Budweiser anywhere I go.  I cannot ruin an enjoyable evening by risking a mediocre beer ordered to impress somebody.  It is impressive to see the Clydesdale horses pulling the massive beer wagon at local parades and festivals.  Cheers!  Bottoms up!

August 10, 2018

The invasion of electronic pacifiers have conquered the world!  The choices are endless to stay distracted.  Taking your selfie as you fall off a sidewalk curb in Chicago or taking the photo of your killer are modern day life.  Broadcasting on Facebook Live your proctology exam to friends and family or if you choose total strangers is your choice.

Welcome to the new Dark Ages of Digital Delusion.  I harken back to ancient times, when the status symbol of a mammoth Boom Box was a statement of; “Hey listen to my music!”


Even this antique entertainment has dared to return into our digital nirvana.  However, do not expect the in crowd to be seen hauling this mammoth dinosaur today.

A personal annoyance was attending a conference or business meeting with a few tablet or iPad users.  They had their faces buried in their screen because they were far more important than anyone else in the room.  Do you want your doctor distracted by checking their personal tablet while you are in a physical exam?

Tablet user by tank

If the military has a tank parked in your neighborhood, then you rush out to capture this?  When I was traveling across Europe by rail during our honeymoon in 1986, I did not realize the raised level of security to prevent terrorist attacks.  In Vienna, Austria soldiers with machine guns slung over their shoulder were a common sight as well as police.  My photographer bride did not feel compelled to snap pictures of these military on duty.  When our plane was leaving the Munich jetway there were German troops on foot guarding the ground crew and a machine gun jeep driving along the jet until reaching the runway. Do you want security forces staring at their tablet or iPhone instead of observing their area of security?

We had a memorable and beautiful honeymoon in Europe.  It was interesting to enjoy conjugal bliss in our sleeper compartment on our overnight train from Italy to Austria.  Of course riding the rails is the only way this hobo wants to travel!  We even got to ride a mountain rail line in Luzern to visit town on foot from our hotel Chateau Gutsch perched on the Swiss Alps.  My Swiss parent company had USA staff in our manufacturing plants and I enjoyed their friendship and travel expertise.  Several chose to retire in the USA instead of returning to Switzerland.

We survived the Dark Ages without cell phones then.  Can you believe it?  Today, children would be crying and confused without their personal cell phone.  Those days are long gone and not to return.  So be sure to charge up your iPad, tablet and cell phone!  These are all the Boom Box of our day.

Media playing mind games?

August 5, 2018

The major premise behind a 1997 movie is in play today in front of our nation.  Conspiracy Theory introduced us into the funhouse of intelligence actions that are lethal to villains and innocents.  This movie challenged the movie going public to consider what seems obvious can become shrouded to mask the secret missions around us every day.

It does seem odd that the commercial news media are all chasing ghosts of Russia secret agents in the presidential campaign of candidate Donald J Trump.  These suspicions had a source media keeps hidden by smoke and mirrors.  We are assured that these secret confidential sources are very reliable for us to believe them sight unseen.

How many people associated with the Hillary Clinton campaign for president have died in the last 30 months?  Of course it is too fantastic to be credible.  But the fairy tales of Russia agents getting our president elected are rational and continually pounded daily by all the major new media.  Every denial is considered proof of a conspiracy to hide this awful truth from the citizens of the United States.

We are all part of a conspiracy run by our commercial media chasing easy money.  They expect their stories to slide past without scrutiny.  Most television reports are incoherent and poorly explained in general on many topics of news.  If we really relied upon the facts as presented on national news, then we all would be in the stone age.

This is the LAST STRAW!

August 2, 2018

No one alive today in the USA can remember those primitive days when we used paper straws!  Peddling my bicycle to McDonalds to buy my lunch during summer vacation from grammar school was a long time ago.  But I can vaguely remember sitting with an ice cold Coke with my hamburger and fries.  I used a paper straw!  Plastic straws were novelty items in the grocery store for rich kids.

coke paper straws il_570xN.598773242_fq6l

If plastic straws were banned to save the ocean, then it would not interfere with my child like delight in drinking my Coke with a paper straw.  As a matter of historical fact, we bought our glass bottles of Coke at our local grocer store instead of Amazon over a computer.  These bottles included a two cents per bottle deposit that would be refunded when returning the bottles to the grocer.  We were so dumb back in the 1950’s but we were smarter than the straw banners today.

Of course today we need taxes, public shaming, and hysteria over plastic straws because the save the earth storm troopers do not trust the people who built this country we enjoy today.  When I was 8 years old I pedaled my single speed Schwinn bicycle 3 miles from our brick bungalow in Chicago to buy a hamburger, a small paper sack of French fries and a paper cup of Coke with a paper straw!

Those were the good old days for me.  Will anybody demand to ban the plastic cups? Paper cups were fine for me.  (How many people keep and store all the plastic jumbo soda fountain cups from gas stations?)  I do find some of our problems of today can be easily solved from what we did in our past.

Look up Aardvark paper straws on Amazon and they are sold in retail stores as well.

You want Mud Pies or Money?

July 24, 2018

Everybody faces a choice in life that changes our lives for the rest of our life.  We can pretend to avoid making a choice, but that is itself a choice to let chance decide where our lives go.  The election of 2016 surprised the self appointed experts on everything in commercial news media who dismissed candidate Trump immediately.  They chose to belittle and even humiliate anyone crazy enough to support 45.  A normal person would feel humiliated and ashamed to act so arrogantly and be found completely wrong.  Shame never bothers journalists, reporters and career criminals because they are always innocent.


Moms know that toddlers can find joy in pretending mud pies are works of art.  Moms also deal with the dirty play clothes and washing up the mud pie artist.  Nobody can handle a mud pie and not get dirty!  We are now at the necessary stage of hosing mud off our commercial news media folks who have been throwing mud pies ever since President Donald J Trump assumed office.

Many families can now afford a few self indulgences like buying dessert.  Yes, Mississippi Mud Pie is great but obviously it is not just mud.


Moms and dads are pleased to see their families happy with our return to prosperity.  Prophets of doom find pleasure inflicting painful warnings of disaster.  If warnings from television were believed, then our country is lost in chaos now with nothing ahead but catastrophe.  Why are people traveling for family vacation and spending more money?  Food stamps and welfare money is not the reason people are living better today.  Jobs that are paying better, more jobs, and reduced income taxes are putting money back into working families.  Blame our 45th president!

After months of throwing mud, we must hose off the commercial news media who can only throw mud.  USA is celebrating a return to prosperity in spite of endless reporting of doom and forecasts of failure on television.  I have more money in my pocket today.  44 was only promising to add jobs; “I am focused like a laser on adding jobs.”  Reporters forecast doom while USA prospers.

Let’s do it again? No Thanks!

July 21, 2018

Zombies are for real!  Joe Biden returns!  Joe sat out the 2016 election campaign to let Hillary learn how much America loved her.  Joe wants everybody to return to his Happy Days are here again!  Does anybody have nostalgia to relive the 8 years from January 20, 2009 through January 19, 2017?  Nobody can rattle off any major accomplishments of Joe that he knows are legendary.

Joe was bemoaning the cruel and inhumane treatment of illegal aliens getting separated from their children in criminal processing.  This enforcement was implemented by President Obama as a standard operating procedure.  Facts are not important anymore.  Our economic growth with more families seeing gains in their piggy bank are tangible benefits with President Trump.  How many families want to live on food stamps?  There is no doubt that USA set records on people collecting food stamps while Joe was part of the Obama team.

Talking tough is typical barroom noise.  Remember Obama publicly criticized a cop for checking on a black professor’s home if it was being burglarized?  The professor went nuts claiming racist discrimination and 44 piled on but had to retreat.  Then there was his public relations stunt to invite the policeman and the professor to Rose Garden for peace keeping over a beer with VP Joe.  My greatest fear was that Obama fall ill and crazy Joe assumes office. (See my archived blog from August 30, 2015 We pray that Obama stays healthy )

Biden bible quote

We pray that Obama stays healthy so Biden can’t take over.

Why does GOD keep us alive?

July 16, 2018

God must have a sense of humor I cannot understand.  There are laws of nature that every living creature needs to respect in order to avoid falling from great heights or drowning.  Angela Hernandez drove her car over a cliff by Big Sur and should have been smashed to death.  Her crushed car was sitting amid the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean.  Do you expect to find her alive and well after a week?  A married couple on the way to fishing sighted her car way down below the cliff they were on.


If there were no humans, would the sunset still be beautiful?

Why does God grant a miracle?  Everybody in the world was following the story of the coach with his students missing in caves in Thailand.  Of course exploring underground in monsoon rain season takes a special kind of stupid.  After a week they were found alive, if not in great shape.  Then hundreds of rescue specialists poured in thousands of hours to pump out water while raining poured in more.  Divers risked life and limb in pitch dark flooded caves and did save everyone.  Unfortunately, one of those sacrificed his life in this heroic cause.

These recent events are just a small glimpse of the almighty power of God to show mercy to human stupidity.  There is room in this world for atheists and even devil worshipers to provide us entertainment with their public displays of stupidity.  But it does raise a question on the frequency and visibility of these modern miracles.  Is anybody paying attention to God anymore?  The other side of getting attention is volcano eruptions, earthquakes, and of course a new variety of plague.  I like happy miracles.  There are plenty who deny the existence of God, with their complaints against any supreme being who would allow suffering in life.  All of these critics enjoy pointing out the catastrophes but ignore our miracles.

Cola Wars Long Forgotten

July 7, 2018

Children today have never been taught the history of the USA struggles in our Cola Wars that eventually swept around the globe.  Billy Wilder was brave enough to make fun of the hysteria surrounding our self absorbed focus on “soft drinks” that made hard cash.  The brash executive that invaded communist strongholds in order to sell more Coca Cola is a perfect time capsule of these forgotten days.

Yes there are more important issues today to debate Energy Drinks or iced coffee.  During the excitement of capturing the world for Pepsi Cola versus Coke, the fanatic brain washed enthusiasm of a young communist captured the heart of a rich Coke executive daughter visiting Berlin on her world tour to get “culture”.  The executive assigned the duty of chaperoning this young lady was James Cagney intent on climbing the ladder of success to the top.  He traveled around the globe  dragging his family in his quest to sit at the top spot in Atlanta corporate headquarters.  Now his dreams would be dashed by a young commie?

Cagney gjon-mili-james-cagney-and-lilo-pulver-in-one-two-three-a-film-directed-by-billy-wilder

The power of laughter can break many barriers.  Humor relies on shaking us from our slumbers.  Wilder had the audacity to poke fun at the communist paradise full of people looking to get into our horrible corrupt USA.

I do not know if new viewers will get the humor today.  Too many children have been brain washed into group think.  It is rude and cruel to laugh at other people now.  There are too many serious problems in the world to waste our time to laugh at them.   I do laugh at how the basic common sense of Cagney leads to a happy ending for everyone.  Hormones and sexual attraction are important factors in the plot of One Two Three.  

This history lesson is worth a watch, even if you don’t get all of it.  Humor is as simple as 1 2 3.  Our hysteria today of fanatics screaming Resist makes less sense than the competition of Cola War.  


Happy 4th of July in 2018

Everybody in the USA is free today!  Anybody bitching today is entitled to free speech, but not entitled to me paying attention or respecting your opinion.

We enjoy these freedoms by fighting and some of us dying to stop people who oppose our right to be free.  Do not demand my silence in order to speak for me, because you know you are smarter.

T & E Game of Thrones

July 1, 2018

Hidden from view of mortal men and women is the private realm of corporate chieftains.  Companies that are listed on the stock exchange are conducting business with torrents of currency pouring through corporate headquarters.  We see the lower levels of demigods at commercial airport gates.  They have priority boarding and first class section always.  The real gods and goddess in Mount Olympus are seldom seen because they travel in private corporate jets, unless they are invited onto a private motor yacht or chartered train.

USA economic resurgence revives wretched excess again!  Spending money on Travel and Entertainment is not restrained now  an imprisoned demon.  

As a young man plunged into the corporate world working, I did cross paths with demigods at TIME and at Mobil.  I was a young rookie in the corporate culture who got to see how the game is at a level most folks have no clue.  These companies are still around after mega merger acquisitions.  Time/Warner and Exxon are bigger than ever until the next megadeal is consummated.

When the Summer Olympics were held in California, Time reserved an ocean liner and shuttled Grand Poohbah types on private motor yachts to avoid riff raff and commercial hotels.  When Mobil decided to accelerate the growth of a tiny takeover (W.F. Hall Printing my employer) they shoved me into one of their fleet of corporate jets to visit  our printing plants in Corinth Mississippi.  However, they forced us to sell our condo in Manhattan across the street from Saint Patrick’s Cathedral we enjoyed.  Mobil had 150 hotel rooms in Manhattan reserved every night for company use with 50% room fee paid whether used or not.  On my trips to New York I stayed at the Waldorf Astoria at half price to my T&E.

These memories are of chicken feed budget items.  Today, it is a whole new world at a whole new level.  I know that my stocks include billions of dollars in T&E!  This money is excessive but it is not wasted.  That is how the game is played.  To demonstrate how far it has infected our culture, everybody is encouraged to own time shares in private jets for family trips!  

Every year in Augusta Georgia, during the The Masters there are private jets  moved to another city because the parking lot is always overflowing with corporate jets by Bush Field.

National Education Association dues hit

June 27, 2018

United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of  Illinois teacher, Mark Janus who objected to his union dues allocating his money into political activities.  This court decision is the culmination of decades of excessive political budgets funded by union dues not approved by the union membership.  It may not be surprising to discover that the disruption of union political “donations” will harm the Democrats primarily.

The Socialist political candidates plan their campaigns for elected office with mandatory funding from taxpayers.  We are not being taxed enough.  We are supposed look forward to confiscating more money to fund a future Socialist Utopia as seen in Venezuela today.  However, it seems a lot of citizens in the United States of America are feeling optimistic about our economic improvements now with 45th President Donald J Trump.

Forcing teachers to march on picket lines with political banners does diminish image of educators to level of a political prop.  Everyone has the freedom to speak freely their views on the direction of our country.  Mass produced protest posters seems more in keeping with communist “spontaneous demonstrations” political propaganda.

Power to the People is defended by allowing freedom to choose instead of a union dictating their selected candidate for their union workers.

Mad as a wet hen

June 25, 2018

The best advice offered today for citizens of USA is to yell and shout?  Whenever you lose an election there is a remedy to change reality.  Harass and yell at anyone connected to the winning side.  Chase their families out of restaurants!  Threaten their children!  Blockade streets just to prove the losers are mad!  Our children must never degenerate into Antifa Resist morons.


Representative Maxine Waters offered instructions on how to torment and deny freedom to anyone connected with our 45th President Donald J Trump.  Mad World News article May 31, 2017 had this excellent composite image capturing cackling hens mad at the crowing rooster.

Trump Rooster

Maxine needs a bubble bath to relax.  She might be denied service and escorted out from a spa because her political opinions insult and irritate the owner.  So can she organize a protest to deny everyone the right to protest?  There are no limits to stupidity of blind hatred of all opponents of Trump.

Deplorables laughed at derogatory names and pointed accusing fingers from offended snowflakes mad at the world because there are supporters for our 45th president.  We are not going away.  Do not threaten physical intimidation and violence, because the spirit of LIVE FREE OR DIE has not been put into a jail cell yet.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was “asked” to leave a small greasy spoon dive Red Hen Restaurant. (Red Hen Café places around USA not connected at all to this story.)  This incident inspired Waters to intimidate and harass anyone connected to White House of 45.  Any slight negative opinion on performance of 44 was immediately shackled to labels of hate speech bigotry.  Of course this current incitement to harass and intimidate 45 is best path for USA?  What is the vision for USA with the Wet Hen crew?

News creates news

June 22, 2018

Farmers have to suffer bad weather and long hours in order to raise crops or cattle.  Their success is not assured if there is a surplus when they can sell at market.  Forget about the quality of product if you are in the greatest business today.  NEWS has no quality standards and anything goes!  I still miss a genius who entertained the oddballs like me.  Ernie Kovacs was a comic genius with many talents to entertain.  His television program had no connection with reality or facts.  In many ways he could have been a great success today in NEWS INDUSTRY.

ABC News issued an “apology” on their  television text claiming Manafort guilty of 5 Cases of Manslaughter.  The apology by ABC lacked the publicity and exposure of their sensational fiction to grab viewers.  Looking forward to ABC showing the video of staff visiting Paul Manafort to apologize in person.  It does seem odd that enough hysteria has been created on defaming Manafort thus far, that he is being held in prison for months until his trial will be held (if it is ever held?)!  No news story can be found on how USA justice system has punitive decisions depending on who is facing trial.

Kovacs explain game26HOBERMAN2-master675

Commercial broadcast companies who make more money with more viewers do not think they have to explain censoring what news is not covered.  The “mistakes” that grab attention of millions are never explained.  ABC created a massive stock market sell off for an hour on another “Whoops? Excuse me!”  Ernie Kovacs would have been amazed.   His love for his craft and attention to detail was often at odds with broadcast budgets and deadlines.  Our broadcast companies lack respect for their shrinking audience as we get less news but lots of flood video, volcano updates, and no updates on Russia stealing election for president in USA.  Now we have to wonder; “Did Russia steal election for president?”  Maybe more damage is underway with 25 million illegal aliens walking our streets in the USA right now but this is an invisible news story as well.



Boldly going where no man has gone!

June 15, 2018

The “reporters” taunting and harassing Press Secretary Sarah Sanders revealed their depths of depravity.  It was not surprising that nobody asked Sanders about the CBS scoop!  Sanders raised the topic of her reported departure as Press Secretary.  She also made her point that nobody asked her to verify if the CBS scoop was accurate.  The rules of reporting are now out the window.  Everybody wants the most outrageous 10 second video clip for their tag line.  Journalism has been killed by greedy publicity hounds.

Every child soon learns how far they can push their mom, before your rump gets smacked.  I am sure the perverts for publicity would love to have their bare buttes getting smacked by Sanders for their television clip.  Sarah knows better not to reward her tormenters with more free publicity.  Seeing CNN outburst and interruptions to disrupt any semblance of order with press corps are stunts to gain publicity.

Sean Spicer Holds Daily Press Briefing At The White House

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 23: CNN’s Jim Acosta reports ahead of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s daily press briefing in the James Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House January 23, 2017 in Washington, DC. Other than delivering a statement on Saturday critical of reporting about President Donald Trump’s inauguration, this will be Spicer’s first news conference at the White House. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Sean Spicer endured the water torture and rejoiced to leave these vultures to fight over their next victim.  One of the most proud of these greedy vultures for video air time is Jim Acosta of CNN.  Mother Sanders had to “bitch slap” Jimmy to learn his place at last conference.  None of the reporter women get any slack from Sanders just because they are women.

This will come as a surprise to the video journalists of today but nobody wants to watch a smartass lecture us on current events.  We want information.  We do not really care about your opinion on anything.


Missing the good old days of CZARS?

June 11, 2018

Czar Watch[5]

Who are these Obama CZARS?

Our 44th president built up his own hidden government while serving as president.  All of his Czars were not funded positions that relied upon approval by Congress.  These were indispensable people cluttering up the White House?  I have the 45th president chart of positions he created for a czar.

It is empty.  ZERO overhead positions that only hold press briefings to keep entertained.

Donald J. Trump is our Churchill

June 9, 2018

Many of us recognized the dire straits our beloved friends and family in the USA were forced to travel thus far in our new millennium.  We were just coming out of an economic slowdown when we got slammed with a horrible terrorist attack on 9/11/2001.  President 43 Bush got sidetracked into an endless Iraq campaign of war instead of destroying the terrorists from Afghanistan who killed us.  President 44 went around the world apologizing for the sacrifices USA made in preserving peace and order.  Iran was happy again and rich.  Russia took what they wanted without a word.  China fortified their manmade island in their claim for sovereignty of China sea.  We saw our economy drifting in stormy weather with too many families out in the street and under employed.  Are you depressed again remembering all this?  I was just about run over with the stock market crash of 2008.


Walking into this wasteland of international thievery and wasted opportunities from our recent economic coma was our ridiculed and defamed future president, Donald J Trump.  Winston Churchill was an old and ridiculed former servant of England who warned of impending world war and chaos to deaf ears.  When the war was actually thrust upon England, after a meaningless concession for peace by Chamberlain to Hitler, then it seemed all was already lost.  By force of will and endless wheedling with our president Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill kept Germany at bay while waiting for USA to enter the fight.  Our 45th president Trump saw and spoke often on the sorry state of our old economic policies, and weak foreign policy that gave away too many military lives and too much wealth.

Today, our economy is vibrant and growing with jobs that Obama promised us were gone forever.  China continues their persistent plan to dominate the world, but now we present a counter balance to aggression.  Russia persists in expanding their territory that was lost under President Reagan but president 45 is always there to remind them of our presence through reenergized alliances.  North Korea attempted to test our resolve with braggadocio of nuclear missile tests.  This actually was the first major test of our president.

The same Fake News Media that has criticized and attempted to ridicule our president, is now offering advice on how to negotiate with North Korea in Singapore on June 12, 2018.  This negotiation would never happen without the methods and yes, tweets of our president.  The Democrat party has lowered their importance to ridiculous impeachment threats and refusing to work on anything as a tactic of RESIST.  The citizens of the USA deserve to know the facts instead of the nonsense news that leaves everyone hungry for information about our country today.

Nobody can predict events in the future.  Our president knows his challenges are huge and can ruin our future if he fails.  My advice is to stop yapping like a back seat driver and help read the roadmap for our president!  We all need to work for our success for our children and their children.

General Eisenhower saved my parents

May 27, 2018

My parents were walking across Europe during World War II to reach the USA Allied line in Germany.  That is how I would be born in the USA.

My father Vladas served as a army Lieutenant in Lithuania.  In 1941 Germany Blitzkrieg ran over neighboring countries unprepared for military armored weapons speed of advance.  His soon to be wife, Elina was terrified of being forced to accept pledge of NAZI teaching.  If teachers refused to follow NAZI teachings, then they were shot.  She had no intention of brain washing children in Lithuania.  Mom said everybody heard the artillery bombardment drawing closer day by day as Hitler lobbed artillery shells into cities nearby Vilnius.  It was not lightning in the evening sky, but fires from the artillery advance.

Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia all fell quickly to the NAZI invaders.  Then Germany got mad at Russia and decided to invade.  Napoleon discovered that mistake destroyed his quest for world domination.  Hitler refused to end the carnage and casualties to his army in this brutal battle front.  The military of Lithuania was to become cannon fodder and forced to fight at the Russian front for Germany.  Vladas was in command of a machine gun unit.  He told his men he will kill the German army escort if they will fight with him.  They all agreed.  As their unit were in heavy woods marching from Vilnius, they killed their German army escort of troops.  Dad left to get mom and leave Lithuania together.

They had many dangers, adventures, and many German citizens help them as they walked from Lithuania through Germany to find the allied lines to reach freedom.  Plus mom was in early pregnancy with my older brother.  They reached the moving line of General Eisenhower Allied Forces.

Many men died on all sides of this war.  The supply depot set up in Germany was vital to keep the Allied Forces moving to end the war.  General Eisenhower was not authorized but he expanded his manpower by using Vladas in Eisenhower pool of allied sympathizers working in this depot.  Dad was amazed to find he and mom were getting 3 meals a day again after weeks on foot.  Dad did not get enlisted in the US Army but he got military clothes and a special insignia pin to identify his status.  This is the pin.  They got passage to the USA on a battleship after dad lined up a job on a farm in Iowa.

What is Rosenstein smoking?

May 5, 2018

The Rosenstein Memo is discussed and illuminated by Andrew McCarthy in NATIONAL REVIEW on April 4, 2018.  It appears the Rosenstein Memo has powers beyond our Constitution!  There is no branch of government that can peer inside the genie’s brass lamp to know the powers of a bureaucrat memo!?  Everything is so top secret nobody knows what is going on legally or illegally in the witch hunters employed by Special Counsel Mueller.  All of his magic powers are granted by the invisible memo.  Nobody can see this memo?  Nobody can say what the memo says?  This is SECRET!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!pipe smokeIMG_0376

We can only wait, and wait, and wait for more endless investigations and extortions with threat of prison and personal bankruptcy by investigators that have no limits by law.  A judge in Virginia has the clarity of vision to see chaos and strong arm lawless behavior by the Special Counsel Mueller crew.

Our national news media ignores and pretends this story does not exist.  It seems nobody can rely on getting news anymore with the current propaganda reporters on majority of news channels.  There is hope for our Constitution to survive with the brave efforts of defenders of our rights under the law of the land.  A memo does not replace our Constitution.

USA imports poor people

May 4, 2018

When does a “needy migrant” become a cherished resource Democrats import illegally?  If you ignored import rules for food products, liquor, pets then everybody expects legal penalties to stop illicit smuggling.  However,  anybody suggesting that laws be enforced with illegal aliens, is guilty.  They are guilty in denying Human Trafficking endorsed by weeping celebrities and politicians.

Reporters only go ankle deep into the depths of slavery investigation.   There seems to be a spectacular lack of interest in investigating the sources of money and resources used in creating chaos at our border.  The reporters recite the lawyer talking points that all of these people are “escaping extermination by criminal gangs and persecution by their government.”  It seems the reporting on the rampant threats are invisible by zero reporting on lethal travel threats migrants endure.

illegal alien train

The more the merrier hopping a free ride to get money from the USA are encouraged by lawyers in the USA.  It might seem odd, but normally nobody is encouraged to risk their life by taking a journey that is dangerous, lacking food or water, and dragging children into harms way.  Reporters love to show crying children or dead children for sympathy.  Why do the master minds of this migration remain hidden from public view?  They deserve recognition for their abuse of people under the guise of philanthropy.

There was a great persecution and annihilation of Christians in plain sight ignored by the commercial news media by reign of terror from Syria.  It did seem odd that Christians were identified and blocked for entry by President Obama.  There was visible death and suffering ignored by commercial news media headlines.  This trickle of illegal aliens staged by shadowy organizations is constantly covered by reporters as if our greatest human tragedy in our world.


Vice Squad Reporters

April 25, 2018

In the ancient days of reporting news, there were “beats” assigned.  This was done to assure the editor in chief there would be fewer fist fights and brawls among his sharks hunting for headline news.  It also served as an incentive to motivate lazy reporters to work harder for the same pay in order to get out of the basement.

Sports reporters were generally drunkards and failed news reporters.  Obituary reporters were rookies graduated from college ready to change the world.  Society column reporters were gossips who crashed a lot of parties without getting tossed.  Vice Squad Reporters were a special breed.  Midnight prowling of police scanners and 3:00 AM visits to lock ups to see who got in clink needs insomniacs.  I am afraid that the majority of NEWS reports today fail to meet Vice Squad standards from the 1960’s.

CNN Jim Acosta deserves a shot at his own Vice Squad column.  Teasing millions of viewers with constant talk about Russian Hookers failed to deliver anything.  CNN needs to either get a reporter in Moscow to interview a lot of call girls, or let Jim immerse himself among the whores.  Will the Greek leprechaun George Stephanopoulos have an hour interview with Stormy Daniels?  Can Slick Willy Clinton be an expert advisor on this program?


Happy Days of “Bimbo Eruption” as 42nd President.

We need the commercial news business to finally add some real Vice Squad News!  What politicians were hauled into the drunk tank last night?  Who got caught in the act with a prostitute or adult film actress (same thing)?  The public is being bombarded with Stormy Daniels updates.  These are boring.  Jimmy Kimmel attempts to get a laugh on sexual perversion suggestions, but nobody cares.  It is time to take the gloves off.

Get the team reunited of William J. Clinton and his little buddy the Greek leprechaun.  They can roam the streets and night clubs of Manhattan until the sun rises.  Hillary will have her frying pan ready to greet her husband in the morning.

Right now, I have a team of hobo experts eager to console and empathize with ladies of the night.  All they need is an expense account commercial news wastes on political reporters who buy drinks for drunk politicians to get old propaganda.  Sorry Joe Biden, but we need your entertainment money for some ladies.  Jim Acosta can reprise the movie character “Ramrod” who was a brutal pimp boss in the 1982 forgettable movie Vice Squad.  

There are no boundaries to bad taste or fake morality on fake news shocked at extramarital one night stands.  Even in the north woods of Wisconsin, it is rumored that a “girl’s night out” has a bunch of wives going to the no tell motel for an adventure.  Adult film actress have no stunt doubles to perform normal or perverse sex acts instead of the actress.



DNC Grieving Sad Death

April 23, 2018

This is a very unusual form of grieving in USA.  The loss of the 2016 election for president has DNC Denial of Defeat Dumbassery!  We are shown the painful bitching continuously  courtesy of television and print Commercial News for 2 years.  It happened so GET OVER IT!

clown hearse

Clown hearse is dignified exit for our government.

My proposal is to hold a funeral for the dream that will not die.  Reporters chased phantom hookers from Russia that started the Mueller investigation into every crazy accusation from lunatic Democrats mourning the assassination of Queen Hillary Coronation!

A dignified public funeral procession on the death of the Democrat victory in 2016 needs closure.  This time of public grieving is more dignified than the hysterical politicians holding USA hostage as they refuse to do their work as elected officials.  We want the reporters to actually report on real problems instead of chasing fables and hookers.


There are no reporters concerned at all about 4 Graves from Benghazi.  “What difference does it make!”  Hillary is eager to bury her Benghazi fiasco, but refuses to bury her failed campaign for president.

I will be starting a Fund Me page to collect money for a funeral procession that includes everyone.  Hobo or clown or even a swamprat are invited to march along the hearse with a casket labeled WHAT HAPPENED.  We will send a jug of moonshine and $10 to the Clinton estate as a token of our grief.


Bolts from China made me Nuts

April 7, 2018


Nobody is safe with cheap steel from China now in our nuts and bolts.  Got 2 stories to tell to illustrate the dangers we face now everyday in USA because of China.

In 1993 a salesman neighbor Tom was a fellow member of our Kishwaukee Country Club. He took pride and enjoyed bragging about the quality of the nuts and bolts he sold.  There are engineering tests to confirm the strength of the steel necessary to be safely used.  However, his troubles began when China flooded the USA with their nuts and bolts.  He could not understand how they were so cheap in price.  His troubles grew as his sales kept losing to China products.

We were at our annual golf event at Kishwaukee CC that was always festive and fun; Member & Guest Tournament.  I always made this my Mardi Gras week during June.  I took vacation time and enjoyed the club as my wife hung out with the ladies and the boys were playing in the pool and running up my account with popsicles, candy, and lemonades.  The club locker room man found me just before Tee Time.  He told me I had an important phone call from my office.  WF Hall was an old time Chicago printing company that kept changing owners while competing with RR Donnelly.  One of my major accounts was Spiegel Catalog.  The Donnelly plant in Indiana had millions of catalog pages printed and stocked in their storage warehouse to be shipped to my bindery operation in Georgia for the huge Fall and Winter Catalog of Spiegel.  The warehouse storage racks collapsed and caved in.  The warehouse was 5 stories tall and had steel storage racks with robot retrieval run by computers.  All my needed pages were ruined in a pile of rubble and the catalog mailing was in jeopardy.  Printing 3 million copies in a week was the challenge.  I didn’t think I could solve that problem before my tee time.

I called the Vice President I knew at Spiegel to offer our help to print the ruined pages.  Davia told me RRD promised they would print and deliver our needed pages.  I went to play golf and enjoyed playing my usual lousy golf.

Then the lightbulb went on after a few cocktails in the club house.  China sold fake quality rated bolts in the USA and that included cheating RRD.  The bolts broke under normal load weight.  Saving money on using steel from China put a printing plant under a huge financial burden to reprint on paper they had to buy to replace the product lost because of cheap steel bolts.

So what about the bolts in sky scrapers?  So what about bolts in your car chassis holding suspension parts in place?  This is no joke.  We don’t know when and where the millions of bolts China sold were mixed in with the bolts actually stress tested by USA engineers.  We cannot put quality control tests on every single nut and bolt China loaded into container super freighters.

Do not whine about how US steel will cost us more in products.  I want products we can count on for quality.  It is too late after  a building collapses with fake bolts.   Gravity is one law nobody can break.  It is a killer if you fall down 5 stories.

USA is taking back control on our own destiny with steel and our safety.  How about the launching frame for our new space rockets?  Do they have China bolts?  Our steel standards are for safety and reliability.  China cheated on meeting the standards to take our money and risk our lives for their profit.

White Easter in north woods

April 1, 2018

Today we celebrate the most important Roman Catholic church event of the year.  We give thanks for our salvation and the promise of entering heaven.

A surprise gift arrived in our mailbox Saturday.  We visited The Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina on our way to a national Allante car meet in Savannah, Georgia in October of 2017.  I bought his 2002 published book; HOPE for Each Day.  His selection of a Bible passage is developed with his thoughts on how he applies it to life.  The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association sent us a remembrance publication; DECISION Billy Graham 1918-2018.

Billy Graham DECISION IMG_0255

Each one of us face challenges that demands our strength and fortitude in helping our family stay together.  Our teenage sons gave us opportunities to test our faith!   We are proud that our sons made us stronger in faith as they tested our patience.  Our sons are stronger for overcoming the challenges they created by their actions.

“Listen: Death is a defeated foe!  Christ has won the victory.”  From HOPE for Each Day on April 1 morning meditation; A purpose and power.

Data Miners Steal Children

March 20, 2018

Global Science Research is reported in an important article published by The Guardian from Paul Lewis and Julie Carrie Wong.  This is the firm that is pivotal in the Facebook Data Mine.  Is anybody surprised that Facebook pops up ads on your personal page?  Does anybody notice that the ads on your Facebook page are items you searched while not logged onto Facebook?  Is this digital magic only a lucky coincidence or are we constantly being tracked across our computer searches?


Our children are being stolen.  Being a parent is a exhausting and time consuming job.  When our boys were children, we did haul them to play little league baseball and hockey, Boy Scouts, and swimming.  Today kids get parenting time in front of their cell phone screen.  This is progress of a sort.

Those child miners pictured in 1911 had to make money for their daily bread.  Parents did not want their children deep underground but the children had their lives stuck in a mine digging for money.  Our future adults of USA are digital junkies from childhood.  Marketing companies want to have them in their pocket.

I have no idea if there will be a public outcry on the sale of personal information from Facebook Data Mine.  This whole process grew much more powerful fertilized by our tax dollars under 44th President Obama.

NSA data farm 03NSA-master1050

National Security Agency had record funding of our tax dollars to start a data collection plantation holding every person in our country inside.  We thank our 44th President Obama in funding data collection.  Terminator was a science fiction story.  Obama bragged on his data collection secret technology to know every person inside our country as well as outside.

We can cut out the guess work and just have a merger between NSA and Facebook.  Every child will be given a free cell phone so they can be tracked at all times.


Remember our American Dream!

December 13, 2018

Big Brother of digital media tracks and keeps a ledger on everyone. Google, Facebook, and Twitter are watching and recording everything. Do NOT leave our dream in jail.

Hoboduke Nonsense

James Truslow Adams had his historical book Epic of America published in 1931. “The American dream, that has lured tens of millions of all nations to our shores in the past century has not been a dream of merely material plenty, though that has doubtlessly counted heavily. It has been much more than that. It has been a dream of being able to grow to fullest development as man and woman, unhampered by the barriers, which had been erected in the older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had been developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the simple human being of any and every class.”


Why are we pretending that our country is not the ideal and the envy of everyone who wants to live our American Dream? Why are we ashamed at our prosperity and accomplishments? We want our children to face the future with…
