The Other Mothers...

Mother's Day, 2022 To The Other Mothers... Some marriages don’t work. Mothers and fathers split. Mom gets the kids. Dad re-marries and the Step-Mother is created. Aside from childbirth, it’s fair to say the Step-Mother has as hard – if not harder – job as mom. The Step-Mother must endure the rip-tides of intense emotions, the hurts and pains from a ruptured family, trauma, resentment, rivalries that inevitably infest the relationship no matter how hard she may try. Under the best of circumstances, it’s rare the Step-Mother receives a fair compensation of love, respect, appreciation, and inclusion she's earned from the children she’s inherited.  Putting aside the pain only she can feel, she tries. She endures. Too often, she suffers in silence for the sake of their father, dissed by the children, resented by the “ex”, she struggles to maintain peace in her ‘extended family’ as best she can, requiring super-human inner strength, and sacrifices no one else will ever know.

 ...harder to read. Friend Monty Pelerin posts an astounding article that has been - unsurprisingly - censored by FB, Twitter and the usual suspects. For that reason alone, it needs to be read and distributed widely. "False information" being censored as "false information" may be the most serious action trending in media and government today.

Heavy Lifting Done Here

Image
Much - if not all - of the heavy lifting in researching the minutia of the laws, regulations, orders, and directives that monkey-wrench the gears of Liberty is done away from the klieg lights of the MSM. Without the blow-dried bally-hoo of the Evening News or the WaPoNYTAP 'news' syndicate, most of the really important stuff goes unnoticed. Ignorance of facts - and the apathy toward their significance - is the greatest contribution to the continuing erosion of Freedom in America.  Below is a little read, little-known article that, if given its just rewards, would be fueling constructive conversations across the country. Share with your friends and it might reach its potential.

Carlin and Politics

Image
Over the centuries, America has been blessed with more than its fair share of comedians. The exceptional ones often made their name harpooning politicians and politics in general. It’s fair to say some of the best of those skewers were more expert in Irony, Cynicism, and Sarcasm than knee-slapping, pie-in-the-face comedy. Quoting Saul Alinsky, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” especially when aimed at all things Political. Nowhere is there a better, bigger target-rich environment. In his final years, George Carlin (1937-2008) rose from Top 40 DJ and TV’s “Hippy-Dippy Weatherman” to the pinnacles of popularity, foremost among those who could speak unvarnished Truth to Power and get belly-laughs, standing O’s and serious respect for his words and insights. Some of his best lines have become scripture describing the tawdry reality of politics, politicians and The Elite. Possibly his most notorious and prescient… “They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking

The Poison That We Read

Being married to a career Journalist is a real advantage when you are a Talk Show Host/Writer always on the look-out for trophy-size examples of poisonous propaganda disguised as “news”. True, the media landscape is littered with Fake News. But the truly deadly “stories” are those, like Copperhead snakes, that blend perfectly with their surroundings and strike when you’re totally off-guard. BAM! Another brain cell of Reason falls victim to the venom of lies, damn lies and prejudice. The most deadly are those that slither in without the fanfare of attribution; these reptiles have no name. Recently, she found this one: “Black Women Feel Sting of Jackson Hearings” Take a few moments to slog through this POS. I’ll be here when you’re finished throwing up…. Notice the “article” claims no authorship; just the ubiquitous “Associated Press” and presented by a TV station you’ve likely never seen. (“WCMH NBC4 is Local for You, serving as Columbus, Ohio's top rated source for breaking news…”

Is the Declaration of Independence Treason?

Image
While reviewing the docs of the Founding Dads, I noticed something that caused consternation. After researching the written works of Experts way smarter and more educated than I, they did NOT provide a satisfactory answer. So what’s the problem? In our sacred Declaration of Independence, Tom Jefferson & Friends famously scribbled: “…that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”. Got it. Pretty straightforward for 18th Century Revolutionary Writing. Certainly, King G. didn’t miss the point. For the rest of us arriving later, nothing has changed. The Declaration has not been revised, re-written, abridged or PhotoShopped; no asterisks, footnotes, additions, deletions or addendums. If Government inverts and perverts its role and begins another “…long Train of Abuses and Usurpations”, it would be nothing less than logical, reasonable, imperat

International Fact-Checking Fact-Checkers

Check out one of Facebook's latest censoring methods   One might make a debatable case for literally censoring certain material, e.g, graphic sex or violence on publically accessible platforms – at least until society’s moral tolerance descends to greater depths. However, the evolution of what’s now SOP, has brought us the above: “Restrictions With Counseling Due To Lack Of Purity”. That any particular post failing to encompass every known or even conceivable “fact”, must be stamped with a Warning Notice or Advisory is yet another tell-tale step toward complete censorship. The ‘notice’ above was unique in one respect: the tag line ‘independent fact-checkers ‘certified by the ‘International Fact-Checking Network”. Until this ‘notice’ appeared, it had been only recently been revealed common ‘fact-checking’ was based on the personal opinion/experience of some Anonymous Fact-Checker. "...certified..."? "International Fact-Checking Network"? Is this an international
