This shows what the left is dealing with. Sad.

This just might set it off. Unprecedented and incredible.

I suspect the TDS sufferers are super happy now. Enjoy it while you can. November is going to change everything again (I believe).

I was with John Roberts. I believe they should have left it alone. The country was already so divided I guess this can’t make it much worse.

That said, I wish the left would just stop lying. There has never been a “right” to abortion in the US Constitution. Even Ruth Bader Ginsberg said she thought Roe vs Wade was the wrong way to go about legalizing abortion.

So now it’s illegal in some states and legal in others. It’s back as a state’s issue which is what it should have always been. If you live in a state where it’s illegal and you want it legal you have 2 choices. Work to make it legal in the state you live in or move to a state that it is legal.

I watched AOC and Maxine Waters incite people to insurrection. Aren’t they the same people who are trying to put all the January 6th rioters away for “insurrection”? Don’t they say that’s what Trump did? So you should understand my confusion to see them doing the same thing they said Trump did.

But if you look at the polls you will see most people agree with me. They think Roe Vs Wade should have been left alone but they also believe it shouldn’t be up to the federal government. Most people think abortion should definitely not be legal after the first trimester.

Some on the right are now suggesting the left is going to legalize abortion up to the point of birth and retroactive abortion up to 1 month after. I think that’s just a way to get their side as crazy as the left is. I don’t believe anybody in state government actually believes you can kill a 30-day-old baby. But some on the right do and that goes back to our fundamental problem. We have a very divided country. I wish we could come together like we were on September 12th, 2001.

I’ve heard a lot of noise about the Florida bill the left is calling the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. So I found the text and here it is for you. Btw, the word “gay” is not in it. Sexual identity and gender identity appear twice each and simply say teaching this should be left up to the parents for kids from 3rd grade and down. Is that really so bad?

This is from the website Quora. Although I don’t agree with all of it I do with some. At the very least I think it shows why a lot of people aren’t running to get a vaccine.

As a vaccinated American, how do you feel about those refusing the shot as cases surge and another lockdown looms?

I got the shingles vaccine – to protect myself from shingles.

I got the tetanus vaccine – to protect myself from tetanus.

I got the measles vaccine – to protect myself from measles

I got the xxxxxxx vaccine – to protect myself from xxxxxx

I got the covid shot – to protect myself from covid.

See a pattern here?

With the Covid shot I suffered for a week, and will NOT be getting a booster.

Why would I ask someone else to get a vaccine to protect me? It’s my choice, and my responsibility to keep myself safe.

The vaccine has a long list of side effects, and estimates are that the reporting to VAERS are estimated to only be about 20% of actual issues.

I’ve ordered Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, D3, zinc, quercetin, vitamin c, and have more faith in them than the jab.

Cases of cancers, cardiac events and more are on the increase in the vaccinated. While the real effectiveness is about 8% to 10%. Listen to the “Dark Horse” podcast – they are real scientists who talk to reputable doctors.

We have very little information on the vaccine, there were limited trials, with enough issues that other products would have been pulled from use. But not Covid.

Why do you think that the big-pharma companies want to release documents over the next 75 years? Something to hide?

And if all that doesn’t convince you. What about science? In science I’d make a hypothesis and test it. Then publish it. Others would look at the research, make their own decisions, make their own tests, and possibly refute and propose other solutions. This process, in it’s purest form, makes sure that the best ideas are taken, and refined by a large audience, tested, and retested.

Now, think about Covid – no review, no possibility of other treatments, no discussion, only the vaccine. Why? If you don’t take it you will be; fired, fined, ostracized, etc. Why this pressure? If the government was really interested in saving people they would pursue other methods, and look into any alternatives to see if they work. And they don’t. WHY?

All for something that has a death rate just a little worse than the Flu…

It’s not about Covid, it’s about control.

I feel like I’m home again.

I grew up in Tucson, AZ, and went to school for my engineering degree in Phoenix, AZ. After graduation, I was recruited by Hughes Aircraft Co. in El Segundo, CA. I worked for them from 1987 until the end of 2008 when I took early retirement. I had planned to take off 4-6 months but that was right when the 2009 recession kicked in so I was actually off for closer to 10 months.

In September I went to work for ThinKom Solutions Inc. in Torrance, CA and worked at their facility until last month. Well, I’m still working for them but I had a chance to move back to Arizona so I took it.

In May, Betty and I came to the AZ area and started looking for a house to buy. We went out with our realtor on Sunday, May 23rd, and saw a house we fell in love with. We put in a bid thinking it was unlikely we would win as it was a beautiful house that was selling with all the furnishings and a lot more and there were a lot of people looking at it. My favorite feature was the huge granite island in the kitchen. I’ve always wanted a big island like that.

The next day we went to Los Algodones, MX so Betty could get some implants in her mouth and at 5 pm my realtor called and asked if we wanted a house with a beautiful kitchen. We had won the bid, against 33 other people. I think it was a case of a jerk from California swooping in and stealing another one. Well, I hope I’m not too much of a jerk but being as I had bought a house in CA in 2000 and how much appreciation they have gone through in the last few years I was able to make an offer that most in Arizona probably wouldn’t make.

We moved here on July 1st and it took about a week before I felt it was actually mine. I still haven’t made it OURS yet but we will over the next few months. I used one of the PODS from 1-800-Packrat.com and it arrived on the 19th. Daryl came and helped the next day and Heather’s BFF sent her kids over to help too so now all I have to do is unpack all the boxes in the 2 extra bedrooms. I’ve had a few offers to help from family but we’ll see if that pans out. I suspect it will.

We’ve been here for a little over 3 weeks and Betty is loving it. She keeps saying how pretty it is and how people are so much nicer. That’s a fact. You don’t really realize how unfriendly people are in CA until you walk into a bunch of stores and all the clerks and other people are so nice. We are finding Drs. for her various issues and have hope one of them will finally solve her Vertigo problem.

I’m working remotely (just like I did during the Pandemic). I’m still hoping the company sells sometime in the next couple of years and I’ll be able to completely quit.
