Live Long & Prosper!

I’ve lived a long time and I’ve wondered why, when much younger people I knew have died. Now, I think I know the reason. What made me reach my conclusion was when I saw a veteran of WW-II being honored at the recent Super Bowl. I began to look at friends around me. It beamed fairly obvious that those of the so-called “Greatest Generation” normally are living longer than those of previous or succeeding generations.

Why?

Those of us born in the ‘30s lived a different lifestyle. I’m not sure it even deserves the title “style.” What I do know from experience is this: We ran and played outside in the air and sunshine and rain. We had very little to eat, there were no obese kids when I was growing up. What food we did have was “natural.” We had no money to buy what processed foods were available with preserving chemicals added to make them last longer. We ate a lot of vegetables because meat was scarce on the dinner table. We ate chickens that were raised in the barnyard and were not raised in cages. We ate eggs that came fresh from the nest. And we worked. The whole family was required to labor in whatever endeavor brought some money into the family.

But there is another contributing factor, I believe; a psychological element. The Great Depression was a terrible thing and if you weren’t there, words cannot express how awful it was. So people of that era had a “survival” instinct. It was a tough life, and one had to become tough to exist. We had no antibiotics so when we became sick we had home remedies like castor oil, kerosene, turpentine. Our bodies fought measles, scarlet fever, etc. and if we lived we were constitutionally stronger.

Socially we had no iPhones, no Internet, no TV and early on in rural areas we didn’t even have electricity. The first “radio” in my house was a crystal set, which required no power, built by my brother. Since we didn’t have electronic diversions we interacted with others and learned how to deal with different personalities. And then came WW-II. For the only period in my lifetime, when America was attacked, everything changed. The whole country was devoted toward winning that war. So rationing meant we had no sugar, no coffee, no meat, no cigarettes, very little gas and no tires so we continued to walk everywhere.

I think all these things are contributing to why, as a group, those who grew up in the ‘30s and ‘40s are living longer. As a rule, if they are not struck down by some modern disease, the old-timers are living longer than younger people. That’s my take on it, what’s yours?

Goodbye England, Hello America!

The info below was sent to me by a concerned friend who lives in IL. Dearborn, MI is already 80% Muslim, and Detroit is not far behind. Wisconsin has a huge Muslim population from Somalia. Believe it or not, Stone Mountain, GA has a large concentration of Muslims. It’s coming to a city near you. Be prepared.

So England doesn’t like the US recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel!!!!! Imagine that!

I thought this might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war.  Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. It’s time for border control, or start planning for a very big goodbye to the American way of life!
Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without any entry control:
How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:

Mayor of London … MUSLIM

Mayor of Birmingham … MUSLIM

Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM

Mayor of Blackburn .. MUSLIM

Mayor of Sheffield … MUSLIM

Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM

Mayor of Luton …. MUSLIM

Mayor of Oldham … MUSLIM

Mayor of Rochdale …. MUSLIM

All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:

Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques

Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts

Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils

Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK

Muslim Women…78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing

Muslim Men..63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing

Muslim Families..6-8 children planning to go on FREE    benefits/housing and now all UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

..And we (the USA) and (CANADA) can’t decide on an immigration policy???

You won’t hear or see this on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, or read it in the NY Times, the Washington Post. And these are the sources of the uninformed.

Please support our President in his fight to save our country from a similar fate.

Abortions on Demand!

The Senate, in all its wisdom, has rejected a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks. Personally, I believe a woman has a right to select an abortion at any time she chooses. It is a decision that is her’s alone and one that she will have to live with for the rest of her life. I don’t think that the government has any business dealing with personal decisions. But abortion should not be a substitute for birth control when there are so many ways to control that.

After just a few weeks a fetus has little fingers and hands and feet and toes, so it is a human being. Twenty weeks is FIVE months. If a woman can’t decide on an abortion before she has been pregnant for five months, there is something wrong with her thinking. Of course, so-called “Planned Parenthood” will perform an abortion as the baby is being born, using a vacuum device to suck its brains out.

The Senate, naturally, takes the easy way out because to them a vote is a vote and they will do anything to keep their 3-day-a-week cushy and lucrative job. They are all millionaires and they are not going to jeopardize that by losing one woman’s vote.

As I said, it is not my business when a woman decides on an abortion. But a five month fetus is definitely a human being, no matter what name you call it. To abort it is killing a person and it is something that should take serious thought and is not a decision to be taken lightly.

Dreamers? My ass!

Chuckie Shumer and the Democrats are holding up funding for our armed forces and other services until the President grants amnesty for the “Dreamers.” Those, of course, are illegal children of aliens who sneaked into our country without following the legal path to citizenship. There are 800,000 “dreamers.” How are they doing?

792.000 (88%) are over 25 years old.

900 (less than 1%) are in our military.

743,000 dreamers do not have a college degree (83%).

189,000 dreamers dropped out of high school before graduating (21%)

9,000 dreamers are in jail on criminal charges including murder (1%).

657,000 dreamers receive some form of welfare (73%).

Just what positive impact are these “Dreamers” having on our country? What kind of scam are Chuck Shumer and the Democrats running against us taxpayers? We are NOT responsible for these people’s parents being criminals and slipping into our nation. Why should they receive special treatment OVER those who are patiently waiting in line to enter America legally? “Dreamers,” my ass! They are breaking the law. Ship them out!

Seabees? Buzz…buzz!!!

Dose the word “Seabees” mean anything to you? I’d bet that you’ve never heard about the Seabees but without them America would likely have lost WW-II. Of course, in the ‘40s this nation was patriotic. Sadly, it isn’t anymore, except in the older generations. Consider this: When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, there was no way we could fight them from California. We’ve heard lots about the Air Force, General Patton and the tank corps, the Navy carriers and the grunts in the Infantry who fought hand to hand on the ground.

But we had no bases in the Pacific from which to launch an offense against the Japs. Before you can have bombers that stop the advance of the enemy and eventually turn them back it was necessary to have air bases from which the bombers could reach them. That was the most important, and first priority for us. And, while young boys could be trained to fight in a war, it was necessary to have experienced construction people to BUILD those air bases and housing and everything necessary to operate from Pacific islands. Those islands were really mountains covered with thick jungle growth.. What could we do?

With the cooperation of labor unions and U.S. contractors the Navy asked for volunteers from the construction industries. Immediately thousands of civil engineers, Caterpillar operators, stevedores (who unloaded ships) brick layers, carpenters, electricians, welders VOLUNTEERED to join the armed forces.  These Construction Battalions were hurriedly formed and shipped off to those jungles where they fought mud, mosquitoes, malaria, and attacks from Jap bombers and snipers to build those facilities. The name “Seabees” was a nickname from the initials CB for the Construction Battalions. They not only served in the Pacific but also in England building airbases and the entire construction necessary to make them function.

The average age of the Seabees was 31 and some were in their 50s. These men had families and were employed in high paying civilian jobs. They gave all that up to serve America when their experience was absolutely vital. There is no question that the Seabees are the most unsung heroes of WW-II. There are no monuments that I know of to herald these brave men. Many of them died in the service of this nation. If you know any seniors in their 80s and 90s who served in the Seabees take a moment to thank them for their service. They were indispensable because NONE of the more notable segments of the armed forces could have functioned – without the Seabees who were often the FIRST to the battle lines before anyone else.

Tell it like it is, President Trump!

Can anyone deny that Haiti and many places in Africa are “shithole” countries? Every time President Trump says what most conservative people in America know to be true, the media jumps on him like a “June bug on a turd.” There…now I am just as “vulgar” as our President. So you liberals can jump on me, too. To tell the truth, I’m honored to be on the same page as Trump. What baffles him (and me) is WHY the Democrats and liberals WANT to bring these people into our country? People who will instantly be a drag on our economy, our customs, our culture, our educational system, our welfare rolls, our free housing for indigent people.

You can’t fault Trump for wanting the best for America. Why should we put doctors, lawyers, nurses, and professionals of all kinds at the END of the legal immigration line to take in people who have no interest in “becoming Americans” but just want our free stuff?

Well, of course we know why the uproar over something that Trump MAY have said. It’s not “presidential.” We’ve had our fill of political hacks as President. We’ve seen the Clintons and the Bushes play their political games. Acting “presidential” to them meant always putting something ahead of America’s best interests. At last we have someone who is honest with his actions and his language.

Liberal, socialist Democrats want to fill our country with the trash of other nations because when they give them the “free” stuff they will automatically become Democrats. We already have all the dead people voting for Democrats, so let’s add a few million people from the dregs of the world to the voter rolls.

Donald Trump ran his campaign on an America First platform. And that is why he was elected. The American people, in general, are sick and tired of being the mother pig for a bunch of suckling misfits from really rotten countries. Absolutely nothing good comes from swinging wide the gates of our nation to people from places like Haiti and Africa.

America is the most compassionate country in the world. We send billions of tax-payer dollars to places like Haiti and Africa. And that is in addition to the private charities that send more millions. Unfortunately, most of it ends up in the pockets of those country’s dictators.So don’t preach to me about how “badly” America treats other countries. Look at Europe. Look at England. Those countries have become mostly Muslim (London even has a Muslim Mayor) and they are bleeding the honest, hard-working citizens dry. Do we really want that for our nation? If the liberals and Democrats feel so badly about Haiti and Africa, why don’t they volunteer to go live among those people and share their poverty? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Shumer wouldn’t get within a hundred miles of those people – except to drive them to the voting places on Election Day. Personally, I don’t want a horde of immigrants from “shithole” countries invading our nation. And I’m glad President Trump feels the same way.

Help! Sexual Harrassment!

Of course I don’t condone “sexual harassment” whatever that is. It now appears to be everything from rape to a casual flirt of, “Hi, Babe.” But there is something wrong about the way women are presenting their case against (it seems) every male she has ever encountered. But, with Twitter being the source of most people’s “news” it is easy to claim harassment of any kind.

We are all the resulting sum of the choices we have made in our lives. If a woman of consent age was told by Harvey Weinstein that “I want to put you in that movie but you must have sex with me first” the woman does HAVE a choice.

True, if she turns Harvey down it may cause a stumble in her career. It may even end her career in Hollywood, but there are other places actresses can work. Even if she accepts Harvey’s proposal there is no guarantee that he will make her a “star.” BUT, she is the one with the vagina. She does have a choice. The “casting couch” is well known in show biz.

If Harvey tried to seduce teen-agers he should be put in jail for life. But I suspect that proposals of his sort have been going on since the beginning of time in almost any company or institution of every kind. How many professors have offered a passing grade to some young girl if she “visits” his apartment? How many secretaries have been offered a promotion to the front office if they meet the boss at Motel 6 after lunch for a career “chat?”

My main point is this: However repugnant the offer of having sex with a fat old man may be – the woman DOES have a CHOICE. She can say, “No” and go on with her life. But if she says, “YES” I just don’t see that years later she has the right to renounce that choice and ruin some man’s life, even if he is a scum bag.

I was once alone in the announcer’s booth at WSB-TV. It was the place every guy gathered when we weren’t performing other duties. Usually there was a crowd in there. But, for once, I happened to be there alone. A young and attractive woman came in by herself and just stood there for a few moments after saying “Hello.” Then, she came up close to me and said, “It’s a shame that you’re married.” I knew that I had just been offered a free romp in the hay with this woman. I admit to some hesitation; I am a man. But I said, “Well, I’m not sure it’s a shame, BUT I am married.” And with that she left. The thought of “sexual harassment” never entered my mind.

I had a choice to make and I did it. I don’t think it is right for me, forty years later to reveal the name of this woman (who is now probably a grandmother). Life is nothing but a series of choices. It is up to us, male or female, to make those choices. And whatever they are, we must live with them. God will sort it all out later.
