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.

Stages of a communist takeover: (borrowed from a comment I read)

1. Demoralization – This process occurs over many years. The media and institutes of education manipulate and undermine the moral fiber and integrity of the country. Perception replaces facts. Ridicule of “old ways” is a weapon in the propaganda arsenal. As the younger generations embrace the illusory promises of secularism and Marxism the influence of the older generations slowly declines.

2. Destabilization – The process of replacing individual liberty and responsibility with new arrangements of centralized power accelerates. Massive government programs and regulations now intrude in the lives of everyone, permeating society, including churches and synagogues. Those who protest the encroachments on individual liberty, responsibility, and traditional morality pay a heavy price.

3. Crisis – The nation now demoralized and destabilized, a crisis is short-lived and involves a revolutionary change of power. A catastrophic event overpowers and splits the country. The Constitution would be circumvented by force—using violence as necessary.

4. Normalization – The final stage comes when the populace gives up and begins to assimilate the revolution. A combination of stifling bureaucracies and the threat of terror (economic or political) brings the populace to its knees. The appearance of peace and security disguises the bitterness of tyranny. We are between the destabilization phase and the crisis phase.

Now we wait for the “trigger” event.

I’ve been scratching my brain trying to figure out why the left hates Georgia’s new election law.

I’m sure some will claim looney things like “it outlaws drinking water while waiting to vote” which is nonsense. Others will argue that poor and minorities won’t be able to figure out how to get an ID but isn’t that more racist than asking people to use one to vote?

The bottom line is the left wants to control power in this country from now until the cows come home and they don’t care what lies they have to tell to do it. Hard to believe there are people that actually believe these lies. I feel sorry for them

This is from a study done by a Physicist named John Droz. He and a group of scientists and engineers looked at all the court cases about whether there was fraud in the 2020 election. Here’s the link and here’s the text of his summary.

It’s beyond exasperating to keep hearing the cacophony of chicanery about the 2020
Presidential election-related lawsuits.
The Left’s message to the public is that there were no consequential 2020 Presidential
election malfeasance, irregularities or illegalities — supposedly because the courts
objectively and thoroughly investigated those claims, and ruled them to be unfounded.
Neither element of that assertion is even remotely true.
To counter the later part of that false narrative, a team of independent volunteer
(unpaid) scientists and engineers recently put together a List of Lawsuits involving the
2020 Presidential election. In it we identified the issues at stake, how each case was
treated by the courts, what evidence was objectively analyzed, who won and lost, etc.
We tried to walk a narrow line of not only having a comprehensive list, but also
information easy enough for the public to understand. (For example, since none of
us are attorneys, we consciously tried to avoid unnecessary legal jargon.)
To further assist in the understanding of this important list, we simplified 20+ pages
of filings and decisions on each case into a one or two sentence summary. (If we
didn’t do justice to any of these, please let me know and I’ll issue an update.)
Another idea we implemented was to color-code the decisions — to make it easy for
the reader to segregate the various outcomes.
Lastly, we passed this list by over a dozen lawyers involved with election-related
lawsuits. The typical response we received was “Excellent!”.
So what are the takeaways?
To begin with our list shows that there have been eighty-one (81) lawsuits filed that
are relevant to the 2020 Presidential election. (Note 1: we are counting an original filing,
plus additional appeals as one single case. Note 2: other lawsuits are possibly undiscovered.)
The results to date are:
a) Eleven cases have been withdrawn or consolidated. (These are not wins or losses
to either side.)
b) Twenty-three cases have been stopped from proceeding (dismissed) due to legal
technicalities (standing, timing, jurisdiction, etc.). These have nothing to do with the
merits of the case and should also not be considered wins or losses for either side.
That more than a third of the lawsuits were not allowed to proceed to an
evidentiary hearing is more of an indictment that many judges appear to be
afraid of opening this pandora’s box. Considering the importance of election
integrity to our country, it’s a shame for them to hide behind subjective legal
technicalities. How is that in the interest of the citizens in our country?
In any case, this leaves us with forty-seven (47) lawsuits relevant to the 2020
Presidential election where a judge has ruled (or hopefully will rule) on the merits. The
results so far are:
c) Twenty-two cases are completed (adjudicated). These are where the court heard
arguments, considered evidence (where applicable), and then formally ruled on
statutory issues (e.g. the legality of a state’s election process), etc. Of these:
i) Fifteen cases were WON by Trump, et al, and
ii) Seven cases were lost by Trump, et al.
d) Twenty-five cases are still active and have not yet been decided — so the
ultimate winner and loser of these cases has not been determined.
So, Trump (et al) have WON the majority of 2020 election cases fully heard, and
then decided on the merits! Is that what the mainstream media is reporting?
Note that despite all the noise about fraud, only three (3) of these lawsuits materially
dealt with voter illegalities (citizens voting twice, votes from deceased persons, etc.).
Interestingly, all three of these cases are still open.
Further, just three (3) lawsuits addressed voting machine inaccuracies (purposeful or
accidental). One of these was dismissed (due to jurisdiction), one was ruled against
(although no discovery was granted), and one is still open (discovery was granted).
The likely explanation for so few cases in these two areas is that legally proving
fraud or voting machine manipulations are very time-consuming processes, that
require substantial investigative work and documentation. There simply wasn’t
enough time to do this prior to key points in the process (like the Electoral
College). Additionally, it’s likely that any machine algorithms would be erased
by the time a forensic investigation takes place.
Our view is that the public needs to be much better educated regarding the election
integrity issue — and having a more accurate understanding of the lawsuit component
is a key part of that.
