ROE v. WADE II

I THINK WE ALL SHOULD TAKE A STEP BACK AND REMEMBER WHY THERE WAS A ROE v. WADE in the first place. The case was about 50 years ago.

Why was it necessary to create a abortion law in the first place ?

It was necessary because women were dying and getting infected in unlicensed back room clinics and treated by unqualified and unregulated non-professionals. Women were damaged, scarred and infected. Many young women died due to complications that could not be resolved because many facilities did not have the ability to handle complications. So the balance on one side was that some women became infected, and some women died. The other side of the balance was to have the unwanted pregnancy run to full term, give birth and put the baby up for adoption. Fifty years ago it was a different world. I know ! There was a big stigma about a girl or young woman having a child out of ” wedlock “. It was a big taboo with many “Holier Than Thou” people back then that liked to pass judgment and whisper , and gossip. So that is the super short recap of Roe v. Wade. Women no longer had to go to unsanitary, unqualified , underground back room abortion clinics. They could go to a clean and sanitary medical facility and be treated by qualified trained medical professionals.

What I do NOT understand is why the SUPREME COURT of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, by a very slim margin, would vote to take away the reproductive rights of women. 4 MEN and 1 WOMAN voted to strip those established rights away from MILLIONS OF WOMEN IN THE USA. WHY ARE ANY 4 MEN QUALIFIED TO PASS JUDGEMENT ABOUT A WOMANS RIGHT TO CHOOSE REGARDING MEDICAL PROCEDURES?

IF A WOMAN HAS MONEY, I AM SURE THERE IS NO PROBLEM FLYING TO ANOTHER STATE AND HAVING THE PROCEDURE IN A PROFESSIONAL, CLEAN AND SANITARY MEDICAL FACILITY.

SO WHO WILL IT HURT ? THE POOR WOMEN THAT ARE STRUGGLING THROUGH LIFE AND DO NOT HAVE MUCH MONEY. THEY ARE THE WOMEN THAT WILL AGAIN BE REQUIRED TO SEEK BACK ROOM ILLEAGAL ABORTION PROCEDURES BY ” WHO KNOWS WHO ?”

IT IS NOT RIGHT. IT IS A SIN ! THESE 5 JUSTICES ARE ALL CONSERVATIVE AND I SUSPECT THAT IF SOME WOMAN IN THEIR FAMILY WAS RAPED AND BECAME PREGNANT, THEY WOULD CONSIDER AN ABORTION IN A NICE CLEAN AND PROFESSIONAL FACILITY.

Just my opinion,

GEORGE FLOYD

IN GENERAL, I HAVE BEEN A SUPORTER OF LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MANY YEARS. I KNOW POLICE OFFICERS HAVE A DIFFICULT AND SOMETIMES VERY DANGEROUS OCCUPATION. THEY SERVE THEIR COMMUNITIES OFTEN WITH VERY LITTLE THANKS OR APPRECIATION. I BELIEVE THE VAST MAJORITY OF POLICE OFFICERS OBEY THE LAWS UNDER WHICH THEY ARE SWORN TO UPHOLD. THAT BEING SAID………

AFTER WATCHING EXTENDED VIDEO EVIDENCE OF THE DEATH OF

MR. GEORGE FLOYD TODAY ON CNN, IT BECAME CLEAR TO ME THAT THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM. BOTH CAN NOT BE TRUE.

OPTION # 1 I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE DEFINITION OF MURDER..

OR..

OPTION #2 WE NEED TO RELEASE HUNDREDS , IF NOT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SITTING IN PRISON THAT HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF MURDER WITH A FRACTION OF THE EVIDENCE THAT WAS PRESENTED TODAY BY CNN WITH EXTENDED/EXPANDED VIDEO FOOTAGE AND TESTIMONY OF CREDIBLE WITNESSES……”IF” THE OFFICER IN QUESTION IS FOUND “NOT GUILTY” !!!!

BEWARE !!!!! THERE ARE POWERS THAT WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS VERDICT BLOW UP AND TURN INTO RIOTS. DON’T PLAY TO THEIR HAND !!!!

I GET NO JOY FROM WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY. TODAY AFTER WATCHING THE EXTENDED COVERAGE AND VIDEO, THE OFFICER THAT HELD HIS KNEE ON THE NECK OF GEORGE FLOYD FOR SO VERY LONG WHILE HE TRIED TO GASP FOR AIR, WAS ENJOYING THE EMPOWERMENT. HE WAS ALSO SHOWING OFF TO HIS SUBORDINATES IN MY OPINION. IT WAS LIKE, ” LOOK GUYS NO HANDS ! I’VE GOT THIS BIG BLACK BUCK DOWN ON THE GROUND! WHILE GEORGE FLOYD WAS GASPING FOR A BREATH AND BEING DELIBERATELY SUFFOCATED TO DEATH. THIS OFFICER WOULD NOT LISTEN TO HIS SUBORDINATES OR THE DISPATCHER OR ANYBODY ELSE. HE MURDERED GEORGE FLOYD. THIS POLICE OFFICER TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO BE JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER.

AFTER SEEING WHAT I SAW TODAY AND HEARING FROM THE WITNESSES INTERVIEWED TODAY, I FELT ANGRY AND SAD AND SICK ALL AT THE SAME TIME. THIS OFFICER WAS NOT A ROOKIE. IF HE BEHAVES LIKE THIS WHEN HE KNOWS HE IS BEING WATCHED AND PHONE VIDEOS BY MULTIPLE PEOPLE, WHAT HAS HE DONE WHEN NOBODY WAS AROUND ??? POLICE OFFICERS LIKE THIS DESERVE A FAIR TRIAL. HIS BEHAVIOR AND OTHERS LIKE HIM MAKE A ALREADY DIFFICULT JOB MUCH MORE DIFFICULT NATION WIDE. IT IS THIS TYPE OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR BY BAD POLICE OFFICERS THAT CAN RESULT IN RIOTS AND MORE DEATHS.

BY THE WAY, I AM A WHITE GUY. I SUGGEST THAT WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER COLOR YOU ARE AND WHATEVER POLITICAL PARTY YOU BELONG, WATCH NETFLIX *** 13TH *** It is about the 13th Amendment that abolished slavery and how the Post Civil War subverted the 13th Amendment to pass legislation that in essence created legalized SLAVE LABOR within prisons . It also passed laws aimed at INCARCERATING young black men. Many, Many prisons became and still are…

PRIVATELY RUN, MONEY MAKING ENTERPRIZES and the inmate labor supplied by the Feds or the States. FOOD AND A BUNK. The only thing missing is a gunny sack and the cotton fields.

“Running on Empty !” / or Three degrees of separation.

I NEED TO PUT THIS STORY OUT ON THE WEB BECAUSE IT KEEPS APPEARING IN MY DREAMS AND I NEED TO GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD. MAYBE IF I TELL THE STORY, IT WILL LEAVE ME IN PEACE. IT IS A STORY FROM 50 + YEARS AGO………AND LAST NIGHT AGAIN IN MY DREAMS. I WAS A JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND LIVED IN ANAHEIM CALIFORNIA IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD. DOWN THE STREET LIVED A GROUP OF YOUNG GUYS AND GALS THAT WERE ALSO LIVING IN A UPSCALE TRACT HOME VERY SIMILAR TO THE HOUSE I LIVED IN.

I WAS CURIOUS AND INTERESTED AND FINALLY HAD A CHANCE TO MEET THEM. I WAS ALREADY SMOKING WEED AND EXPERIMENTING. ALMOST EVERYBODY THAT LIVED THERE WERE MUSICIANS AND/ OR SURFERS. I JUST SHOWED UP AT THEIR DOOR ONE DAY AND ASKED IF THEY WANTED TO SMOKE SOME WEED. I WAS 16 YEARS OLD. THEY TALKED IT OVER AND INVITED ME IN AND WE SMOKED A JOINT. THEN WE TALKED AND I GUESS I PASSED THE TEST BECAUSE THEN THEY ASKED ME IF I HAD EVER SMOKED HASHISH ? I ANSWERED NO. THEY SAID GOOD AND THEY PULLED OUT SOME BLACK PRIMO HASHISH AND PROCEED TO ENTERTAIN THEMSELVES BY GETTING ME REALLY STONED. IT WORKED. SHORTLY THEREAFTER I WAS LAYING ON THEIR FLOOR ON MY BACK AND STARING AT THE CEILING AND LAUGHING LIKE A HYENA. THEN THEY WERE LAUGHING AND ASKED IF I WAS HUNGRY ? ANSWER YES ! WE ALL HAD A MEAL TOGETHER. I ATE LIKE A BIG HORSE. THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP. I LIKED EVERYBODY THERE AND I WAS ALWAYS WELCOME IN THEIR HOME. PEOPLE LIKE TO LAUGH AND I LIKE TO TELL JOKES AND I NEVER MINDED BEING THE BRUNT OF THEIR JOKES. THEY WERE ALL VERY KIND. EVERYBODY LIKED TO GET HIGH AND A COUPLE OF THE GUYS WERE INCREDIBLE MUSICIANS. THEY TAUGHT ME SOME LICKS ON MY CHEAP GUITAR.

WHEN MY MOTHER PASSED IN A AUTO ACCIDENT, I WAS HAVING SOME DIFFICULTY WITH THE REALITY OF IT. I WENT TO SEE JERRY. HIS NAME WAS JERRY SETTLE AND HIS GIRLFRIEND WAS STEPHANIE DETERDING. I LOVED THEM BOTH AND I LOVED THE ENTIRE GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT LIVED THERE AND VISITED THEIR HOUSE. JERRY WAS JERRY SETTLE AND HE GAVE ME MY FIRST SURFBOARD. HE WAS A GREAT SURFER. I WAS A NOVICE. THERE WAS SOME LSD GOING AROUND THAT WAS CALLED ORANGE SUNSHINE. I HAD NEVER TAKEN LSD BEFORE BUT PEOPLE ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT IF I EVER DID TAKE LSD, TO TAKE IT WITH SOMEBODY EXPERIENCED THAT I TRUST. I PURCHASED SOME ORANGE SUNSHINE AND I ASKED JERRY IF HE WOULD DROP SOME ORANGE SUNSHINE WITH ME? THE EXPERIENCE WAS LIKE DISNEYLAND ON STEROIDS. JERRY JUST SAID ‘ WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE !”

BECAUSE…. We were on a different wave length than everybody else there. True.

WE DROVE TO THE BEACH AND JUST SAT AND TALKED ALL NIGHT, WATCHED THE WAVES AND THE STARS UNTIL SUNRISE. THEN WE DROVE BACK TO THE HOUSE AND JERRY GAVE ME MY FIRST SURFBOARD. I WAS NOT VERY GOOD BUT I LOVED SURFING LITTLE WAVES. JERRY WAS A GREAT SURFER. JERRY EXPLAINED THAT SURFING IS JUST A EUPHIMISM FOR LIFE. EVERYBODY FALLS OFF BUT LIFE IS ABOUT GETTING BACK UP ON THE BOARD AGAIN FOR ANOTHER RIDE. HE SAID ALOT MORE THAT STRUCK A CHORD WITH ME. WE BECAME GOOD FRIENDS AND I LOVED EVERYBODY THAT LIVED IN THAT BIG HOUSE. MIKE HOMER, GEORGE PARKER, STEPHANIE DETERDING AND I MET HER BROTHERS. EVERYBODY WAS A FEW YEARS OLDER THAN MYSELF AND I ALWAYS ENJOYED THEIR COMPANY AND THEIR MUSIC. I ONLY HAD TO WALK 50 YARDS TO MY HOUSE SO I COULD GET ALL SCREWED UP AND NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DRIVING HOME.

AFTER MY MOTHER PASSED IN A CAR ACCIDENT I WENT TO TALK TO JERRY. HE WAS SOMEBODY I RESPECTED AND TRUSTED. SO…BACK TO THE BEACH. LAGUNA BEACH AND WE TALKED AND TALKED ALL NIGHT UNTIL THE SUN CAME UP. I THANKED HIM FOR HIS ADVICE. I GOT BUSY WITH SCHOOL AND MY STEPFATHER SOLD OUR HOUSE AND I WAS TAKEN IN BY FAMILY FRIENDS THAT WERE FRIENDS OF RICHARD NIXON AND FRIENDS OF MY MOTHER. THEY HAD A BIG PIECE OF PROPERTY IN YORBA LINDA AND THEIR KIDS WERE GROWN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE. THEY LET ME LIVE THERE FOR A YEAR UNTIL I GRADUATED FROM VILLA PARK HIGH SCHOOL….THE LAST TIME I WAS OUT THAT WAY IN YORBA LINDA, I SAW THE RICHARD M. NIXON LIBRARY. THE LIBRARY MAY HAVE BEEN BUILT ON ONE OF THEIR PROPERTIES. IT HAS ALL CHANGED SO MUCH IT IS DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY. THEY WERE VERY NICE TO ME. I GOT TO HARVEST THEIR ORANGE CROPS WITH FRIENDS AND SELL THE CROP TO SUNKIST AND I GOT A PIECE OF THE PIE. I LOVED THEM. THEY WANTED ME TO STAY. THEY BOTH HAD GROWN KIDS FROM PREVIOUS MARRIAGES AND IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THE KIDS DID NOT WANT ME AROUND. SO I JUST PACKED MY STUFF AND FOLLOWED MY M.O. AND DISAPPEARED. I DON’T THINK I EVEN THANKED THEM. I WAS YOUNG AND CONFUSED BUT THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MY UNGRATEFUL BEHAVIOR. BUT… I WAS JUST A KID.

BACK TO JERRY’S KIDS, I HAD NOT BEEN BACK TO SEE JERRY AND STEPHANIE FOR A FEW MONTHS DUE TO MY MOVING AND THEN NEEDING TO MOVE AGAIN ETC. EVERYTHNG I OWNED FIT INTO MY 1966 VW SQUAREBACK. I NEEDED SOME JERRY COUNSELING. I WAS SUPRISED WHEN I GOT TO THE HOUSE. IT WAS JERRY’S PARENTS THAT OWNED THE HOUSE AND THE HOUSE WAS UP FOR SALE AND EVERYBODY WAS MOVING OUT. I ASKED MIKE HOMER WHERE JERRY WAS ? HE SAID JERRY MOVED TO SANTA BARBARA, CA. WITH STEPHANIE. NOBODY HAD A PHONE NUMBER OR ADDRESS. I WAS GETTING MORE DEPRESSED, ANXIOUS AND LOST.

I TOOK A LEAP OF FAITH. I WAS BRAILLE DRIVING. I WAS “RUNNING ON EMPTY”. THAT NIGHT I DROVE FROM ORANGE COUNTY TO SANTA BARBARA WITHOUT AN ADDRESS OR A PHONE NUMBER. I ONLY HAD ONE 8 TRACK WITH ME. CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL. I LISTENED TO IT OVER AND OVER. I HIT SANTA BARBARA WITH THE FIRST LIGHT GLIMMER OF SUNRISE. I GOT OFF ON AN EXIT. “MAYBE STATE STREET ?”. EVERYTHING WAS QUIET AND I AM THINKING THAT I HAVE OFFICIALLY LOST MY MIND AND HOW CAN I POSSIBLY FIND THEM? NO PHONE NUMBER! , NO ADDRESS ! THEY HAD JUST MOVED THERE SO NOT IN A PHONE BOOK AND NO CELL PHONES EXISTED YET ! SO I PULL OFF THE HIGHWAY AND STOP AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT AND NOBODY ELSE IS EVEN ON THE ROAD. RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME IS JERRY’S VW BEETLE CROSSING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! SO I AM BLOWING MY HORN AND CHASING HIM AND HE PULLS OVER. HE ASKS ME, ” WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE ?” I SAID I CAME TO FIND YOU AND STEPHANIE! HE ASKS ME, ” HOW DID YOU KNOW WE WERE HERE ?”

I RESPONDED, ” I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE “.

I ASKED JERRY WHERE HE WAS GOING ? HE SAID HE AWAKENED WITH A PAIN IN HIS EARS A COUPLE OF HOURS AGO AND HE WAS ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL! I ASKED IF HE WANTED ME TO DRIVE HIM ? HE LOOKED AT ME AND JUST SAID ” THE PAIN JUST NOW STOPPED ! WE JUST LOOKED AT EACH OTHER…. JERRY SAYS. OK ..THAT’S VERY STRANGE !But very cool !

JUST FOLLOW ME BACK TO THE APARTMENT ! Stephanie and Jerry had just moved in. WE WERE BOTH IN THAT SPECIAL ZONE THAT WE ALL EXPERIENCE AT TIMES IF WE ARE ” AWAKE” ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS.

WE BOTH DROVE BACK TO HIS APT. AND STEPHANIE WAS THERE AND SHE WELCOMED ME. THE THREE OF US SPENT A GOOD PART OF THE DAY TOGETHER. IT WAS A LEAP OF FAITH. THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I EVER SAW EITHER ONE OF THEM. I HEARD JERRY PASSED IN A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT AND STEPHANIE? I JUST DON’T KNOW. STEPHANIE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON AND SO WAS JERRY.

NOW, HERE COMES PART TWO OF THE STORY !!!

SO JUST LAST WEEK I AM SITTING HERE IN FRENCH POLYNESIA MINDING MY OWN BUSINES and WATCHING SOME OLD ROCK AND ROLL AND UP POPS A JACKSON BROWN U-TUBE. ENTITLED “RUNNING ON EMPTY ”

5 minute version. OLD CLIP .

I WATCHED THE VIDEO ( And that was great ! ) and at the end of the U-Tube it listed the names of everybody in the video and the ‘CREW” ! I saw a face that looked very familiar ! It listed the crew names and their room #s when they were on the…..

“RUNNING ON EMPTY” TOUR !

LISTED WERE: ERIC DETERDING AND MIKE DETERDING !!!

THEY ARE/WERE BOTH BROTHERS OF STEPHANIE DETERDING ! THEY USED TO HANG OUT AT THE HOUSE WHERE JERRY AND STEPHANIE LIVED NEAR ME! ERIC AND MIKE DETERDING ARE LISTED AS “CREW” BUT ERIC ALSO PROBABLY DOUBLED AS SECURITY. WHY DO I THINK THAT ? ERIC DETERDING IS THE ONLY GUY I EVER SAW THAT LIFTED A HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE AND PUT IT IN THE BACK OF A PICK UP TRUCK….. BY HIMSELF !!!!!!

I HOPE STEPHANIE DETERDING IS OK AND HAPPY. SHE WAS A SPECIAL AND KIND PERSON. I HEARD THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE YEARS BACK THAT JERRY HAD PASSED IN A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT.

MAY GOD REST HIS SOUL.

NOW 3 DEGREES OF SEPERATION

I REMEMBER A PHILOSPHICAL THEORY THAT SAID, AS WE TRAVEL THROUGH LIFE, WE MEET MANY PEOPLE AND AND EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE MILLIONS OF US ON THE PLANET, WE ALL HAVE MET PEOPLE THAT ARE CONNECTED TO MANY OTHER PEOPLE AND THEY HAVE MET etc. etc.. ALL OF US ARE NEVER MORE THAN 3 DEGREES OF SEPERATION APART FROM EVERYONE AND ANYBODY ELSE ON THE PLANET. I KNOWTHAT SOUNDS CRAZY BUT SOMETIMES CRAZY CAN BE CORRECT !

IF ANYBODY KNOWS ANY OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS STORY PLEASE GIVE THEM MY MAILING ADDRESS BELOW. and…..I WILL OWE YOU A FAVOR !

Thank you ! I’m running on empty !

I WAS WRONG ABOUT VLADAMIR PUTIN..

I really did think that Vladamir Putin was a smart man. He is NOT a smart man and that makes me wrong and also exposes me as a not so smart man. Vladamir Putin has made a terrible miscalculation regarding the effects of his aggressive and provocative actions in UKRAINE. Those aggressive and provocative actions will unite much of our world in a manner that perhaps our world has never seen. Vladamir Putin has shot himself in the foot while the Sleeping Tiger sits poised to pounce upon ancient contiguous property rights denied to them for generations. Nobody but Vladamir Putin would think of trying to deny China their claims. Between China and Russia, I prefer China. The western world would be happy to exchange Vladamir Putin for the more intelligent and logical and wise CHINA. Vladamir Putin thought he had “then” President Donald Trump in his back pocket. Vladamir Putin needs some new interpreters. Donald Trump is nothing more than a 70 + year old flim flam man, and a silver spoon spoiled brat. Vladamir Putin wants to get his investment money back ! Vladamir Putin is hesitant to make his TRUMP history public because the situation makes Vladamir Putin appear to be a FOOL !

VLADAMIR PUTIN SHOULD BE ON OUR SHORT LIST OF PEOPLE THAT WE DO NOT WANT TO CALL A FOOL. HE IS ALREADY BECOMING MORE AND MORE UNHINGED.

I WILL SAY IT AGAIN…..DONALD TRUMP OWES VLADAMIR PUTIN ALOT OF MONEY AND DONALD TRUMP HAS NO INTENTION OF PAYING HIS DEBT.

QUESTION : Was Donald Trump attempting to pay his debt with :

” U.S.A. – DOCUMENTS ? ” DID HE RE-PAY VLADAMIR PUTIN ? WAS TRUMP COMPROMISED ? just a thought,…. a logical thought. Is Donald Trump compromised ?

Rep. Adam Kinzinger conservative (R-Ill.)

“I have lost faith in some of the courage of my colleagues,” he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” in February. “I thought that every person, when they swore an oath, had some version of a red line they would never cross.” quote- Adam Kinzinger

Adam Kinzinger and Elizabeth Cheney were both censured by the Republican National Committee for participating in the Jan. 6th committee.

Representative Adam Kinzinger served our country in AFGANISTAN and IRAQ. He is currently serving his 6th term in the House of Representatives. How did the party of Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr. # 41 & George Bush # 43 become the party of Donald Duck and a clown car full of stooges ? Shame on them !

Even if you did not like their politics , all these Republican Presidents upheld their oaths of office. They respected our Laws, Traditions, and Honor. They also honored decorum. For the last 246 years we have not had a internal insurrection in the USA. And yes, I know…We did have a Civil War. It was a terrible chapter in our history. Both sides of the field of battle paid for our sins of slavery and complacency.

If we do not honor and protect out traditions and our values, who are we ? The Republican Party has essentially “Black Listed” R- Adam Kinzinger and R-Elizabeth Cheney for their Honesty, Integrity and Courage. There is no path for Donald Trump to make a run for the Presidency again. The only race that he is going to run is to get out of the country when he finally realizes that he may be sentenced to prison. NOONE is or should be, ABOVE THE LAW. It would be embarrassing to us as a country to have a former United States President incarcerated. Well, I think the one thing we all have in common now is that just about everybody is already embarrassed by the failed insurrection. I personally am very proud of the January 6th Commission from the Chairman on down. It must be quite a weight for all of them to carry every day and night. I am proud that we have men and women of integrity that are willing to shoulder that responsibility.

We should HONOR all of them. I honor them and I respect their dedication to our country. I thank them all for their service during this difficult time for our country and for our people.

“WE” THE PEOPLE…..

just my opinion,

TRUMP and ISRAEL

The following is a copy of an email that I sent to a Rabbi friend in Beersheva, Israel. I will NOT post his email to myself.

Hey Moishe !  A good week to you also. Trump is your # 1 always ?  I think he is a # 2.  OUR CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS PUSHED TRUMP TO ACT REGARDING RECOGNITION OF ISRAEL.  I also think  Mr. #2 would have kissed HITLERS ASS if he thought it could get him more votes. So TRUMP made the PEACE with 4 other Arab countries ?  I thought that ISRAEL made the PEACE.  Your hero, DONALD TRUMP,  will either flee the USA or he will be our first president to be put in jail. I vote for jail.  Trump does not give a rats ass about Israel.  He only cares about Donald Trump and he surrounds himself with people that kiss HIS ass.

I reviewed the newspapers for years with my greatest teacher and mentor every Sunday. Trump is a conman and a National Embarrassment.  Nothing more. 

At one point in time, I thought he had changed and perhaps could bring some positive changes to the table.  I was wrong !  A lot of good people kissed Trump’s ass to get him to do the right thing regarding Israel.  The power behind the “OFFICE” were good Jews and Christians that convinced him to do “the right thing”.

Donald Trump could not find Israel on a map if it was not marked “Israel”.  I know you are a good man and we have  very different perspectives on Donald Trump.  However,  I WOULD NOT PISS ON DONALD TRUMPS LEG IF IT WAS ON FIRE !  I assume my trip to Beersheva, Israel  is now indefinitely postponed.

I wish you and Israel AND your neighbors PEACE !

Still your friend Moishe !

Elizabeth Cheney

Liz Cheney did her job when she was selected for the the January 6th investigation of the insurrection. Donald Trump never did his job. His job was certainly NOT to incite violence via a mob of armed insurrectionists and send them to the United States Capitol. The state of Wyoming is a state full of very independently minded people. It is not a heavily populated state. I have concluded that the state of Wyoming is populated by a lot of people that can not admit when they are wrong. Donald Trump is a menace. When Liz Cheney was selected for the January 6th committee, she responded and accepted the responsibility. THAT is what all people in positions of authority should do.
She will be fine. I respect her and her strength and her intelligence. She did her job very well indeed. I believe she is headed for bigger and better things if she wants bigger and better things.
Donald Trumps political future is in critical condition and probably terminal. He is a criminal and the JUSTICE system in the USA will determine his fate. Liz Cheney may not be interested in a bigger and better political future. She has been lambasted and insulted and she has been threatened.
I wish her a better life and happiness. Politics in the USA has turned into a sick circus because of one clown.
Donald Trump inherited money from his father. And that is just fine. Donald Trump screwed everybody he could whenever he could for many years. His behavior was in the news and newspapers constantly.
Liz Cheney is a very intelligent and strong woman. She has shown more intelligence and professionalism than I have seen in the Republican Party for years. In fact, I put her at the same level as Ronald Reagan.
just my opinion,
Marc

CRAZY STORY-believe it… or not.

I AM HESITANT TO TELL THIS STORY BECAUSE I WILL PROBABLY GET SOME NEGATIVE FEEDBACK AND RIDICULE . ( bfd ! ) HOWEVER, I AM COMPELED TO DO SO. I DO NOT REMEMBER IF I HAVE BLOGGED ABOUT THIS BEFORE AND I AM TO LAZY TO LOOK IT UP. MY MEMORY AIN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE BUT “THIS” MEMORY IS CRYSTAL CLEAR.

IT WAS JUNE 28TH, 1983 WHEN I SUFFERED A STROKE AND LANDED IN NORTHRIDGE HOSPITAL IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY IN CALIFORNIA. MY ENTIRE LEFT SIDE WAS PARALYZED AND I LOST THE LEFT SIDE PERIPHRIAL VISION IN BOTH EYES. I WAS NOT MAKING ANY PROGRESS IN THERAPY AND I WAS DROWNING IN MY DEPRESSION. MY WIFE VISITED EVERY DAY. OUR DAUGHTER WAS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD.

ONE NIGHT I WAS FEELING VERY SORRY FOR MYSELF AND SORRY THAT MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER WERE HAVING TO ENDURE THIS TRAJEDY WITH ME. THE STAFF AT NORTHRIDGE HOSPITAL WERE VERY NICE AND EFFICIENT AND PROFESSIONAL.

SO, ONE NIGHT, I AM LAYING IN BED AND DEPRESSED AND ANGRY AT MYSELF FOR MY OWN BEHAVIOR THAT PUT ME IN MY WHEELCHAIR. IT IS DIFFICULT TO ROLL A WHEELCHAIR WITH ONLY ONE ARM. THE WHEELCHAIR JUST RUNS AROUND IN CIRCLES. I WAS FEELING THAT I HAVE BEEN RUNNING AROUND IN CIRCLES THE MAJORITY OF MY LIFE AND NOW I WAS FEELING SORRY FOR MYSELF, AND DEPRESSED. IT WAS MY OWN FAULT. I WAS WORKING MYSELF TO DEATH AT MY SMALL CABINET SHOP.

SO…I AM LAYING IN BED AND DROWNING IN MY OWN THOUGHTS IN THE DARKNESS. I WAS NOT PRAYING.

RIGHT NEXT TO MY HOSPITAL BED I HEAR A VOICE.

IT WAS A UNIQUE VOICE THAT I HAD NEVER HEARD BEFORE OR SINCE.

IT WAS A SIMPLE MESSAGE. THE MESSAGE WAS, ” Heal Thy Self !”

It frightened me. I swung my legs over the side of the bed as best I could and tried to walk. I fell flat on my face. I crawled back up grabbing the bed and tried to walk and fell again. I was trying to exit the room and get to the nurses station. I tried again and down again and again. So I get up and try to get my feet under me and tried to gain some balance. I HOBBLED out of my room and down again and again. The Nurse at the Nurses Station yells at me that I was NOT supposed to be walking ! I answered her with, ” Oh Yeah ? Go tell that to the guy in my room ! So what does she do ? She calls security. She asked me what did the “guy” look like ? I answered, I have no idea because it was dark ! Then I told her what I heard. Security came and left. There was no-BODY there. They got my wheel chair and I went back to my room and laid there awake until dawn. I ate breakfast and rolled into therapy. I got up on the parallel bars to walk and everybody in the room was shocked ! They asked me, ” WHAT HAPPENED ? I progressed like I never had before. After that, I worked hard in therapy. I was able to get out of the wheelchair very quickly and used a cane after a lot of hard work with the therapists and staff. I only shared my story with a few of the staff. That was 39 years ago.

I still walk with a limp. It is a reminder to me. I remind myself of how important it is to tell the people that we love….”That We Love Them”

I got a second chance that many people probably do not receive.

It changed my life and gave me a better perspective on life and happiness and how fragile we all are. The therapists at Northridge Hospital were wonderful and patient with me. I even liked the Psychiatrist that was sent to talk to me. I told him a couple of Psychiatrist Jokes and we laughed and laughed and he left smiling and shook my hand when he left.

Just like the MOVIE- ” YESTERDAY ” on NETFLIX. IT IS IMPORTANT TO TELL THE PEOPLE WE LOVE – THAT WE LOVE THEM !

Thanks to all that have visited my blog. I Love you all !

My Blog has been viewed in 51 Countries. WIERD ! RIGHT ???

OUR CREATOR-the JOKER

Hey Murdoch ! Who is this ARISTOTLE GUY ANYWAY ? He sounds like a GEEK ! Or maybe a GREEK !
Whoever he is, I agree with him that even G-D likes a good joke ! ” I SUSPECT THAT HUMANITY ITSELF IS THE JOKE AND “HIS/HER ENTERTAINMENT ! Just look at our history. Cain killed Abel, and we “HUMANITY”
have been killing each other ever since. HUMANITY is a very rebellious species of dumb monkeys but just smart enough to perpetually engineer more powerful and efficient methods of killing each other. I believe “OUR CREATOR”
and his Angels are sitting in the stands observing us as we try to put the BILLIONS of puzzle pieces together to create a MOSIAC equation that will bring about World Peace. We just don’t get it. MAYBE we will get there and MAYBE we will NOT get there. THE ONLY THING I KNOW FOR SURE IS THAT I DO NOT KNOW ! As a species, I think we are PATHETIC ! Everybody loves a GOOD JOKE ! NOBODY LIKES A BAD JOKE !
WE, “HUMANITY” overall are a BAD JOKE !
SO ARISTOTLE SAID: ” EVEN THE GODS LIKE A GOOD JOKE “.
SOME OF US ARE A GOOD JOKE. SOME OF US ARE BAD JOKES.
DEPENDING ONLY UPON OUR OWN PERSONAL SENSE OF HUMOR.
I HOPE AND PRAY THAT OUR CREATOR IS SIMILAR TO A GUY THAT HIDES A COUPLE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE IN HIS POCKET SO THAT HE CAN BE THE ONE TO PLACE THE FINAL PIECES TO COMPLETE
“OUR PUZZLE”.
WE HAVE RE- CONFIRMED THAT HUMANITY IS NOT CAPABLE OF COMPLETING OUR
*** PEACE/ PUZZLE ***
WE CANNOT COMPLETE THE PUZZLE WITHOUT OUR CREATOR AND OUR CREATOR HAS MANY NAMES AND MANY FACES AND OBVIOUSLY HAS A VERY INTERESTING SENSE OF HUMOR !

It is a BIT puzzling, is it NOT ????

WANT SOME PROOF ? HE CREATED HUMANITY ! HE CREATED ALL OF US !

IT IS PUZZLING, I THINK, THEREFORE, I AM, I THINK, AT LEAST

I THINK I MUST BE ! AND KEEP ON LIVING FREE !

Will Smith, Chris Rock & Muhammad Ali

I watched the awards banquet when Will Smith became angry with Chris Rock. Chris Rock is a comedian and a great comedian.

However, some subjects should off limits. I think comedians sometimes push those limits a little to far. Chris Rock pushed the limits with a bad joke about the wife of Will Smith. Many people thought that Will Smith should have exercised restraint. I think that Will Smith did in fact exercise restraint. Maybe Chris Rock missed the movie ” ALI ” where Will Smith portrayed Muhammad Ali.” When Will Smith got up from his chair and “headed’ for Chris Rock I CRINGED ! It looked to me like Will Smith was going to knock him out ! But he controlled himself to a point but he was fuming. Chris Rock is a fantastic, witty comedian. However, some things need to be off-limits. Comedians often push it to the limit.

I assume that Chris Rock later made an apology. I assume that Will Smith and his wife accepted his apology. Will Smith and Chris Rock are two VERY talented individuals. I hope they are still friends. Chris Rock is guilty of some poor judgement. ( we have all been there) Many people criticized Will Smith for not exercising restraint. Will Smith (in my opinion) DID exercise restraint. It looked to me like Will Smith was initially going to knock Chris Rock OUT ! However, he backed off with just a slap.

Maybe Chris Rock missed the movie, “ALI” . Will Smith portrayed Muhammad Ali and his performance was INCREDIBLE !!! I remember watching the news back when the movie ” ALI ” was released and how hard Will Smith worked out and sparred so he could honor the memory of Muhammad Ali.

I hope they both have ” let it go ” and are friends again. They are both very talented in their professions.

FORGIVE AND FORGET ! I hope they are better at it than I am.

Daze of Future Past

marcdbaker

Hello Murdoch ! I do not talk about it very much because I do not like to ALIENATE people. I have had a few experiences that are better than Science Fiction. My experiences are non fiction and better than Science Fiction.
I have had some face to face contact with extraterrestrials. They look like us but they have an aura about them.
I had conversations with them more than once. They also have the capability to communicate without them speaking. They are cosmic farmers….and we are the crop. We are being observed on all levels. When we, (the human race) evolve to be a peaceful world I believe they will make direct contact with our planet.
However, WE ARE NOT EVOLVED ENOUGH YET TO BE CONTACTED. WE ARE NOT THERE YET.
THE ENTITIES THAT I ENCOUNTERED WERE INQUISITIVE AND CURIOUS. THE FEW TIMES THAT I HAD THIS EXPERIENCE, IT WAS A LIFE CHANGING EVENT. IT WAS MANY YEARS AGO BUT VERY VIVID IN MY MEMORY STILL ! I HOPE AND PRAY THAT I WILL SOMEDAY SEE THEM AGAIN. IT HAS BEEN MANY YEARS.
THEY WERE VERY HUMAN AND SPOKE VERBALLY AS WELL AS TELEPATHICALLY. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MANY PEOPLE TO CONSIDER THIS….UNTIL IT HAPPENS. NO DRUGS, NOT UNDER THE INFLUENCE AND NOTHING THAT I EVER EXPECTED. THEY ARE THERE. THEY ARE FARMERS, CULTIVATORS, AND WE MY FRIEND ARE THEIR CROP. IF WE..( THE HUMAN RACE ) FAIL…..WE MAY ALL BE PLOWED UNDER AND THEY MAY REPLANT WITH NEW SEEDS AND HOPE FOR A BETTER CROP. WHEN I WATCH THE NEWS I OFTEN CONSIDER WETHER OR NOT WE ARE A FAILED CROP. CONSIDER RUSSIA AND UKRAINE.
MANY POWERFUL PEOPLE ARE DRIVEN BY GREED AND LUST FOR POWER = FAILED CROP !!
AT SOME POINT IN TIME, OUR CREATOR WILL SEPERATE THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF. WHEN ??
I DO NOT KNOW ! ENJOY THE JOURNEY MY FRIEND. ONE DAY, WE SHALL MEET.
MURDOCH, I DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT COUNTRY YOU ARE IN ??????
