I grew up on a small family farm where cuts and scratches were a daily occurrence. But my mom wouldn't have known this fact because I rarely told her when I cut myself. Why? Because she had a "miracle cure," that she loved to bring out to help my first aid needs and it was called: "Merthiolate, It was a red liquid that contained the fires from hell. The last thing I wanted after falling off my bike and scraping my knee, was to go inside and have the pain increased ten-fold by my mom's medicine.

Could you even imagine how much different the situation would be playing out now if all the factual evidence that has come out about Hunter and Joe happened to be about Eric and Donald? I find it embarrassing watching the mainstream media act like there's no story there. They are cringeworthy. If the Trumps were involved and not the Bidens, it would be treated as if it was the greatest scandal in U.S. history. Democrats and their partners, the mainstream media would be attacking Eric and Donald 24/7. Their double-standards are truly deplorable.
What's worse is they run around making comments that a person with even less than average intelligence, could see through. Most people, maybe not enough, can see just how corrupt representatives from the Democratic Party have become. My gosh, Adam Schiff got caught yet again telling a blatant lie about this Biden scandal not being true and that it was perpetuated through the Russians. Our intelligence community said this isn't true but quite frankly, Schiff doesn't care if he's caught lying as it happens all the time. What scares me is that his constituents know this and yet they continue to vote him back into office.
We must keep in mind as we hear these horrific Democrats speak, that they are in fact representatives of people's opinions in our country. When I allow myself to let this reality in, I become very concerned for the future of our nation.
Just the fact that some people are considering defunding the police, is so mind-blowing that it's scary. What I'd like to know, from a civilizational perspective, can laws realistically exist if there is no law enforcement? Where is the proof that doing away with law enforcement or drastically reducing their budgets, reduces crimes? It doesn't exist.
I'm not saying I'd do it, but if I were struggling financially and I knew the police weren't around to catch me shoplifting or that even if I were caught, the store owners couldn't call 911, the police would no longer be a deterrent. Does having a police presence reduce crimes? Yes! This has been proven for thousands of years.
Have you noticed a trend? Democrats and the mainstream media aren't even willing to concede what should be uncontested. Does having two few or too many, police officers impact arrests and convictions? Of course! But this absolute truth means nothing to liberals pushing their anti-police narrative.
It has gotten so far out of control and I refuse to let go of the dreams of our forefathers and I'm going to go on the offensive like never before to impact the November elections. The young people coming up behind us, even if some don't know any better as to how the world operates, deserve to live the American dream. Let's fight the good fight!
As you well know, some Democrats (and some Republicans), care absolutely nothing about the truth when it negatively impacts their narrative. Democrats and the mainstream media often attack our country on immigration yet:
1) We take in four times the amount of immigrants than Germany which is in second place and five times as much as Britain. We are the most generous country when it comes to allowing people from other countries in.
2) The U.S. is more multi-cultural than any country in the world.
3) The U.S. ranks extremely low when it comes to U.S. citizens seeking citizenship in other countries. Meaning people don't want to leave.
4) If we weren't a great country, then why do so many people want to live here?
It just blows my mind why so many citizens are angry with our country especially young people who are ignorant to our country's history. Just how bad is it to grow up in the U.S. compared to others? These young people aren't oppressed, they are privileged to be born here which is what we hear from pretty much all the immigrants seeking citizenship.
I want representatives who believe we are a great nation and "why," we are great, so we don't lose the foundation that has successfully sustained us all these years.
One of my company’s clients was Morton Salt based out of Chicago; an awesome city except for winters plus you want to stay out of South Chicago due to the violence. I admit that I was focused on their salt when we first began talking about partnering up. I was surprised to learn that their company did a lot more so I thought I would provide a little insight on their company so you can be surprised too.
The company launched in 1848 and was named after the owners’ family name of Morton. It was Joy Morton and her son Sterling, who started the company. Isn’t it amazing that a woman that far back had her own company? Because of their distribution network, Morton is still the leading brand of salt. They created the Morton Salt Girl in 1914 with a famous ad slogan of: “When it rains it pours,” which is still in the Top 10 of all-time advertising slogans.
Morton has/had several operating divisions including aerospace (rocket propulsion). They have a large chemical research division as well. Speaking of aerospace, Morton was part of the investigation into what happened in the Challenger explosion. The Challenger was doomed by a failed rubber seal, called an O-Ring on the booster. They hadn’t anticipated the temperature variance (colder than planned), that day and one of the seals didn’t flex into position which left a gap for the fuel to get through. One of Morton’s employees tried with all his might to get them to scrap the launch because he was afraid of what would happen with their boosters in cold weather, but he didn’t receive support – how tragic!
The family was pretty much out of the operation when a Germany company purchased Morton for $1.7 billion dollars in 2009. Not bad for a company that started with around $10,000 ($300,000 in today’s dollars).
Michael Knowles is a conservative author and blogger. At the end of last year, he spoke at George Washington University and one of the issues he discussed was the desire of some students to remove their "Colonial," mascot because they said it was racist. The students, without any actual knowledge of the mascot, are basically removing George Washington who the mascot represents. I don't need to go into how important Washington was but what really gets me is that it's George Washington University. Let that sink in. There's no doubt they'll go after renaming the school. It's sickening. The tuition there is around $68K a year. I don't think their parents are getting what they paid for.
There's no doubt in my mind that many of the college students don't have a clue what their mascot represents all they see is some old, white guy, and write him off as racist. Again and and again they jump at every issue without doing due diligence so they don't make fools of themselves. This is what they're doing all around the country as they take down statue after statue of people who helped fight slavery.
One last thing that I found interesting regarding his presentation is that around eight hecklers were screaming at him and flipping him off. He asked them to tell him what he said that wasn't factual and/or was there anything he said that upset them . He pleaded with them to debate and instead, after all the screaming and yelling, they left without engaging him. They had an awesome opportunity to prove their points but they ran. This is a great example of how these young people work. It's just about the protests and riots as it gives them a feeling of power. They hear there's going to be one and they head to where they are told.
The scary thing is that it's difficult to teach common sense, logic, and wisdom. There's something is in the water because these traits are seriously lacking these days.
I get so angry at what the media does for the Democratic Party. It's like we're living in a 3rd world country where the media uses political propaganda to push candidates forward.
First of all, The New York Times had an article where they stated Harris was pragmatic and more moderate. Let me ask you, what of that is true? Nothing. How do we know it's a lie? Because Kamala has told us what she believes and isn't pragmatic and certainly not moderate as she has far-left ideology and is on record of sharing this ideology. So think about it, a newspaper compliments Harris; that isn't journalism.
This makes me even madder. You've probably seen the massive amount of coverage by the mainstream media that we have a historic moment by having our first African American female VP candidate. The problem? AN ABSOLUTE LIE! When she received a seat in the Senate, Democrats and the mainstream media didn't say she was African American, they said she was our first Indian (India) Senator. So is she Indian or African American? Well, since her parents come from India and Jamaica, how in the world can people get away with saying she's African American? I hope this a question that Pence ask her about. By the way, Pence is very presidential. When he debates Harris, he'll by far have the likability factor over her.
If I want to say that I'm in a particular minority group, then that's fine now. Liberals have been pushing to no longer teach actual science that states there are only boys and girls (XX and XY chromosomes), because they don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. Think about it, no scientists unless he or she is a nutcase, would ever question the science of biology regarding gender. Picking a gender and ethic background someone might want, sometimes for financial gain (i.e. minority loans, scholarships, etc. ), can't be questioned at this point. As a matter of fact, if you're looking to get a loan throw out that you identify as female and/or African American to get better terms. Truth no longer matters, just be who you want to be.
After the 7 to 1 vote by their city council in favor of removing 100 officers from the Seattle police force and taking three million out of their budget, their African American police chief (Carmen Best), immediately put in for retirement.
Do they not care about the personal lives of these officers? They have children and spouses to help take care of yet these Democrats have absolutely no compassion when it comes to law enforcement.
Well all I can say is good luck because the protection the city of Seattle was offering is crashing down. Less foot patrols. Less car patrols. Here's a little something to think about, a lack of effective policing not only endangers the citizens, it also negatively impacts the economy. People don't want to move to a place where they don't feel safe. Companies don't like to risk their businesses and their employees. Let me remind you that the vote was 7 to 1. That city is in huge trouble. Actually, the data shows if you move to a city which has a strong and controlling presence by Democrats, you will find your new city to be in debt and run horrifically.
General Napoleon married a woman he was deeply in love with (Josephine), but when she couldn't bare children (she was their first Empress), he had to find another woman to give him a son. Josephine understood her role and that she couldn't do what needed to be done. Of course back then it was always the women's fault when she couldn't have a baby.
Josephine was obsessed with perfume and was generally bathed with it every day. Around 200 years later, the smell of perfume can still be faintly smelled in what is now a French museum. The castle/chateau near Paris, long inhabited by Josephine, still exudes the strong odor of musk with which the empress used to douse her daily. Let's face it, the smells during this period, including humans, weren't pleasant but rich people could separate themselves from it by using perfume. She also had a passion for gardening. She ended up with one of the most beautiful gardens in the country. Even though they were divorced, Napoleon would bring her unique flowers from the trips he went on overseas. What's kind of funny is that for a man so tough in his persona, he laid it all on the line when it came to Josephine.
The castle, now a museum, changed hands many times after Napoleon’s ex-wife died in it in 1814. But no effort of the subsequent owners has ever succeeded in eradicating the strong and penetrating scent which clings to the walls, imprinting the empress’s personality on her residence forever. The gentleman in charge of the museum said they're going to quit trying to get rid of the smell because it's more of a novelty at this point and people want to smell the perfumes Josephine wore.
Napoleon was so enamored by the sweet smell of perfumes that Josephine shared with him. that he kept around 54 bottles of cologne with him at all times. When soldiers began going through Napoleon's stuff after they surrendered, they were shocked to find the perfume in his locker. Quite frankly, a big chunk of the country knew little about perfume back then. Not that it hadn't been around (like in the days of Cleopatra), but due to the high cost of the product, a lot of people couldn't afford it. It was a luxury during a time when "Needs," by far out trumped "Wants."
A guess what it all boils down to is that being a warrior and a lover, aren't mutually exclusive.
The tech giants such as Apple, FaceBook, and Google, are getting ripped apart by both Democrats and Republicans in a Congressional Hearing. It isn't often that the parties are aligned but with Democrats wanting to make it look like they are taking on the fight against big business while Republicans are attacking these companies for being proactively liberal, they both have issues with these large companies who can reach consumers far better than anyone else. FaceBook alone has over three billion users and over one billion people have done searches over this last year at Google. No other companies have this kind of reach so when they get engaged in public policies, it can be scary for both parties because they hate losing any kind of control.
The best interaction I saw was when Jim Jordan (R), challenged Google regarding them pulling out of a military contract because their employees said they didn't believe in our military and loss of life. So instead of handling it professionally they sent a letter which included employee feedback, to the officer in charge of the bidding and project. So they pulled back from working with the Federal Government on military issues and sent a letter versus calling first. This is disgustingly unprofessional.
Jordan asked the representative from Google why they weren't willing to help the U..S.'s military when they were already working with China to help their military. Jordan made a great point when he asked isn't this treason? Isn't it treason when you hurt your own country and make our greatest competitor, China, even stronger? We know of the horrific things China has done not to mention how some of their people are treated . Why aren't Google's employees upset about how China does things and how their military is used against their own people? Every day I see examples of young people who think they're smarter than everyone else yet they don't have a clue what's happening in the real world. Why else would protestors/rioters tear down statues of people who helped end slavery? Because they didn't know. Actually they don't care anyway. It's just an opportunity to demonstrate the power they have, a power that Republicans want to end yet Democrats want to celebrate. Two very different ideologies.
The greatest problem with these tech giants is that they have so much control over content that is read and discussed across the world. They've been caught numerous times blocking conservative commentary. They've taken conservative organizations and have stripped them from their search engines. FaceBook has black listed various conservatives and they had to fight to get their rights back to the site just like Democrats were enjoying. Many of their employees insert their ideology in areas they influence at Google. I can't tell you how many times I've heard the tech giants acknowledge that there is an "isolated," problem and will address it with their employees. What really happens, we don't know. Kind of hard to discipline employees when there aren't policies that prevent them from doing what they are doing. By the way, have you ever noticed that the one Party who consistently gets taken advantage of is the Republican Party? Why is this? If there wasn't a case of bias then surely around half the time the Democrats would be negatively impacted.
