You Don't Delete Your Twitter Account

By Monday, Jan. 4th, Twitter stock was down 6.41% since the previous Friday's close. The company lost 5B, that's billions, in market value since closing down Trump's account. I wonder if their stockholders are happy? I predict that their president and many of the VP's will be fired soon. 
 
And, stocks dropped another 1.46% yesterday (4th). That's about another billion on top of the 5 billion already lost since last Friday. Good job. If you're still on the site, it's a good time to delete your account. 
 
We the People are the bosses, no big company (tech) can remain solvent without our patronage. When we remove our support they have nothing left. Let's see what the others do after we bankrupt Twitter. Let's see what their stockholders do. Let's see where their $100,000.00 to $5,00,000.00 salaried and bonus employees go to get a job coming from a company that they bankrupted? I'd venture to say that no other company would want to hire them. 
 
If I was an employee now, I'd certainly start looking for another job. It's going to be much harder later coming from a bankrupt company.  Many of you are going to be laid-off soon anyway.
 
And if I was a stockholder, I'd dump my stocks before their value drops to near zero.
 
IMO --  Any publicly traded company that tries to restrict Freedom of Speech should be driven out of business.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

You Don't Believe That, "History Repeats Itself." Similarity Between Joan of Arc and President Donald J. Trump

 Comparison Between The One Who Saved France And The One Who Saved America.

(History does, in fact, repeat itself).
 
As anyone who has any knowledge of history knows that Joan of Arc was burned at the stake by the British on May 30, 1431. The main crime, among others, was that she cross-dressed, that is, she wore men's clothing. Which, of course, she did, among other reasons, while leading the French army in the Battle of Orleans between October 1428 and May 1429. This solidified The Dauphin's (Charles VII) throne as the King of France. 
 
In 1430, in another battle, she was captured and sold to the English. After all that Joan did for the Dauphin, who was very weak in character, he did nothing to save her and we all know what happened to Joan as I related at the beginning of the story.
 
Fast forward to the year 2020, specifically November 3rd, when the American people turned on the one who saved America. How did he accomplish this? By, “Operation Warp-Speed.” If the other party had been elected President the vaccine would have been developed in four or five years. Due to the easier transmittal of the virus, America, and the rest of the world could have easily gone through another period of history called the Black Plague. 
 
The Plague started in Eurasia where it killed between 75-200 million people and then spread throughout Europe that killed up to 50% of its population. Covid-19 could have lasted for four years like the Black Plague did from 1347 to 1351. 
 
Although the one who saved America was not burned at the stake, at least not yet, he has been impeached and the haters want to try to impeach him again, merely 10-days before his term of office ends, cut off from social media, vilified, and all the Dauphin's of today, that he helped, have turned against him.
 
History is replete with examples of, “No good deed goes unpunished.”

You Don't Dispose Of Your Prescription Drugs Properly

It is a fact that the human body does not totally absorb the total amount of the drug that we consume, so when we go to the bathroom we flush what is not consumed out of the body and it eventually goes into the ground; therefore, some eventually winds up in the water that is underground. By properly disposing of our prescription drugs that have expired or no longer needed in a proper disposal box at a Pharmacy/Drug Store we won't create a bigger problem of contaminating the potable (drinking) water supply.

If you live in a rural area you probably have a well and a septic tank and if in a hilly area the leaching fields are on a downgrade. If you're lucky, then the water will flow towards your down-slope neighbor's well from where he gets his water for drinking and cooking, but what if your neighbor is on the up slope, then the water from his leaching fields just might be running into your well. Generally, the trace amount that is excreted from the body should not pose a major problem, but if your neighbor disposes of a large quantity of prescription drugs it could possibly cause some contamination of the area water supply.

Everyone also has a varied supply of over-the-counter medicine for just-in-case. When these expire do you merely flush them down the toilet? Couldn't these also contaminate the water supply?

Some people may think that the sewers in the cities or those in a community sewer system can't pose a problem as they believe that the sewerage is properly disposed of, but is it? We all remember the poblem with the water supply in Flint a few years ago and what about this public water supply? “Residents of eight cities have been alerted that a brain-eating amoeba was found in a southeast Texas water supply, . . . .”  Was this caused by a combination of legal and illegal drugs that were not disposed of properly? There are enough problems with the water without we humans deliberately adding to it. Dispose of your drugs properly.

There will never be any more or any less water on earth. What is here now will always be here. But, 97% of the water is in the oceans that we can not drink, 2% is frozen, and only 1% is potable water. Yes, we can desalinate ocean water like they do on ships and in dry countries bordering an ocean like Isreal, but that water is expensive and is only a drop in the bucket compared to that 1%.  Let's all help to keep that 1% potable.




You Don't Know That America is now Amerika.

“That all men are created equal.” Amerikan Liberals think that it means everyone should receive the same of everything whether one works for it or not. Of course, they, the elites, don't believe that it pertains to them, as they want to keep their walled-in houses, (read, fortresses) to keep the common man (read, the unwashed masses) away from them. No one should believe that when the three elites sat down to discuss equality for the masses that they would be willing to give up, among them, their eight houses and their combined assets of 60 million dollars, but by increasing the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour, that it would equalize the disparity between them.

If the new Amerikan government is sworn-in, then Americans' freedom will slowly, but positively be eroded over the next four years. America will then no longer be, “the land of the free,” but the home of the people that will pour across our open borders. They will not be the same as those of the last two centuries who were escaping tyranny, seeking freedom, and a better life for their children. No. They will be seeking to destroy America: to turn it into the same kind of country that they came from. They will not come to America to seek those freedoms, but out of jealousy, spite, and hate. Those that will be allowed into America are not the ones who will help this country, but the ones that our newly elected officials want to come in to destroy us and to punish us for taking away their power these past four years.

The new government is dredging up, for cabinet positions, all the old Liberal/Progressive/Communist/Radical guards that did nothing to help the country for eight years prior to the present administration and a Commander -in-Chief that goes around sniffing hair and pinching the nipples of 8-year old girls.

The criminals, both in America and throughout the world, know just how weak this government will be, as we have already seen major cities destroyed and violent crimes has risen by untold numbers in states that are controlled by these Democratic elites.

Welcome to Amerika.



 

You Don't Increase The Distance If The Cars In Front Of You Are Tailgating

On a Colorado highway two years ago there was a 49-car pileup which resulted in 8 killed and 26 sent to the hospital.  The safe(r) distance between cars is the 2-second rule.  Most drivers, tailgaters, follow the 1-second rule which does not give anyone time to avoid an accident if the car in front develops a serious situation.  Of course, even if the 49th car was following the 2-second rule it most probably would not have given the driver enough time to stop to avoid being involved in that accident.  

Although I (nearly) always follow the 2-second rule, whenever I see the car(s) in front of me tailgating I increase the distance between us by following the 4-second rule.  The easiest way to judge this distance is to use the Tick-Tock method.  Each time you say Tick-Tock, one second has passed.  If you pass the point where the rear of the car in front of you was when you arrive there, you were tailgating.

Two seconds - Minimum safe distance.  Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock = 2-seconds.

Four seconds - Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock = 4-seconds.

Or, you can be part of the 17,000 killed and/or the 800,000 people hospitalized by tailgating accidents each year . . . your choice.

You Don't Know My (golfing) Thought For Today: Play Bogey Golf

In days of yore, which means a long time ago when golf was first played there was a man whose name was Mr. Bogey.  Mr. Bogey was somewhat of a braggart, so most golfers of the time wanted to beat Bogey's score and if they did, others would say that they were par for the course.  We now believe that we're supposed to be paring the course, which of course, no one does.  (Unless you're on the PGA Tour).  Whether the above story is true is a matter of supposition.

The weekend golfer puts undue pressure upon himself by trying to par the course, which of course he never does.  It is a fact though, that the original scoring was what we consider today as bogey golf.  By taking the needless pressure off of oneself most (decent) golfers will actually beat bogey.

Let's assume, like at most courses, that 72 is par for the course.  If you play bogey golf then you'll score 90, 72+18=90.  This is really not a bad score for the average golfer, but it seems that breaking 90 seems to be a magic number.

Now let's make ourselves feel good.  You par one of the par-5's, -1, and par a par-4, -1.  You really got lucky that day and birdied a par-3, -2 from a bogey, which gives you an 86.  How many of you would be happy to shoot an 86 or an 85?  I would venture many of you.

So, take the pressure off of yourself by trying to do the impossible and strive for bogey golf, and the most important part about playing golf is the camaraderie and enjoying a pleasant day outside.

And to become a better player you should practice, practice, and practice some more.  But, the biggest lie ever stated is that Practice makes Perfect.  If you practice poorly, you'll never get better; therefore, you should follow my 5 Ps.  Perfect Practice Produces Perfect Performance. -- Have fun out there.
