COVID-19 Cruise

Sunsets

There is something about a beautiful sunset that turns me on. Over the years I have been photographing the end of day event trying to get that perfect scene. I want perfect hues of pink and orange with shades of grey blue with plenty of sky and clouds, and a streak of orange light streaming toward me over the water. I came close a couple of times and have the photos hanging in my house. I tried again last night, and it might be the one I have been longing for.

What a beautiful way to end a great July day. The only thing missing was Taps.

As good as I think this photo is I believe there is an even better one in the days ahead.

All Lives Matter

Yes, I know the title is a statement meant to incite a riot. I have my own opinions about the Black Lives Matter movement but have refrained from exposing them until now. Black Lives Matter is nothing more that a front for a threat to the sanctity of America and the beliefs that we hold dear. Having been born in an age when the communists were expanding to take over the world much the same as Muslims are today, it is easy for me to spot groups like BLM. Black Lives Don’t Matter would be a more appropriate name for the group.

Here is how I think about BLM.

  1. I believe the USA would be in a much more racially united if we had not allowed nineteen millions black babies to be aborted over the past thirty years. Think how many of those kids might have grown up to make a difference? How many genius kids did we slaughter ? How many artists, scientists, preachers, teachers, etc. did we prevent from happening? We will never know, but if BLM really meant something they would put abortion as the highest priority on their list of things to protest. Lastly, think about how many fewer immigrants we would need to allow into the country to fill jobs that no one wants to do.

2. I believe that the USA would be much more racially united if we didn’t have more than forty-five nationally recognized African America gangs in America. Most of them providing father figures for underprivileged boys who join the gangs. They are fatherless because of our effort to make a Great Society. Lets just say the Great Society has failed. BLM should be protesting its failures.

I believe the USA would be much more racially united if blacks would refrain from killing each other. More than 3000 murders of black people are killed by black people every year. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but over thirty years that is 60,000 people. Why doesn’t BLM take offense to that?

3. I believe that the USA would be a less racially divided if the diseases that rack blacks over whites were leveled off. Why do blacks have more deaths from Lung disease, Heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, asthma, and on and on? If BLM was truly what their name implies they would be directing the millions of dollars they get from George Soros and the Ford Foundation toward changing the outcome of disease in the black community. They would certainly save a hell of a lot of more people than they do by picking on the police.

I believe the literal meaning of black lives matter, not just the random killing of a black man by a rogue policeman during an arrest.

I Believe that the BLM movement is a communist front organization. In my generation a front is the face page of an organization that is different once you turn the page. In this case the front is “Black Lives Matter” a very civil sounding humanitarian cause, what is it really?

“Black Lives Matter is a decentralized movement in the United States advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against African-American people. Wikipedia

Who founded the group and why?

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.

Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported

Who funds BLM?

The BLM Movement founders have connections to large “radical Left organizations.”[72] The connection to the Left has provided the BLM Movement with two “big bets” needed to have an influential social movement.

It is estimated that groups associated with the BLM Movement have taken in $133 million since 2013. Organizations associated with liberal billionaire George Soros are said to have provided at least $33 million to various BLM movement groups since 2016.[73]

In 2015, the fundraising club Democracy Alliance, led by liberal donors like George Soros and Taco Bell heir Rob McKay, recommended “its donors step up check writing to a handful of endorsed groups that have supported the Black Lives Matter movement.” [74] BLM Movement groups which received support from the Democracy Alliance were the Black Youth Project 100, the Center for Popular Democracy, the Black Civic Engagement Fund, Color of Change and the Advancement Project.[75]

Additionally, the Ford Foundation and the Borealis Philanthropy created the Black-led Movement Fund,[76]a funding vehicle for the Movement for Black Lives, the coalition of groups responsible for the extremist “Vision 4 Black Lives.”[77] The fund has received “pledges of more than 100 million dollars from liberal foundations and others eager to contribute.”

The name cited in the article above, George Soros, is a known organizer bent on taking down America. He was born in Hungary as a Jew. During WWII he denounced his Judaism to belong to the Nazi party where they used him to seek out jews in hiding for execution during the holocaust. He later made a fortune by manipulating currencies of countries. Although he is a citizen of the USA, his allegiance to the country is questionable. He has funded over two hundred organizations with names like ACLU, Open Societies Foundation, Media Matters, Planned Parenthood, etc, the list goes on and on.

Why am I disclosing these facts and my opinions on this matter? Because my own sixteen year old grand daughter has been sucked into the BLM protest/ She proudly declares that she marched and waved her hand made sign protesting police brutality along with her friends. I know my grand daughter and what she is thinking. None of what she thinks includes George Soros or the millions of dollars he spends to keep BLM growing in size. What matters to her is the literal meaning of Black Lives Matter. She has been brought up in a loving Christian home and trained in a private parochial school based on Christian principles. Her protest is not political by any means.

In the final analysis, I believe Black Lives Matter as do all lives. The BLM movement is a communist front and a joke perpetrated on America to divide the country.

What peeves me is that the BLM movement and the press that reports its activities as news worthy have pulled my kid into their clandestine movement of dividing America for the purpose of moving the populace toward communism (under the banner of socialism and progressivism) by making them think the issue is police brutality toward blacks (statistics in no- way support such a premise). In the meantime the BLM solution is to eliminate the police altogether to make a happier world. The money cities will save on police protection can be moved toward more social programs benefiting the protesters.

Fair Is Fair

Any time we go into a recession or a depression in this country a great number of people suffer. It isn’t easy to cope when you use a salary or a pay check. In order to cope with the situation the government has invented unemployment insurance. It is simple, you are laid off, you apply, and you receive some money, but it is seldom the same money as what you were bringing home. All along I have thought there is a great inequity being perpetrated on the population. There is a segment that is never affected by any kind of economic slowdown, they are the people who work for the government. The argument is that even though we are no longer working police, fire, and emergency services must be available. That might be true, but what about all the non-essential services like the bureaucrats and government officials who contribute zero to the economy? They live off the taxpayer who is now unemployed and can no longer contribute to their support through income tax.

My proposal to even this out is to make these non-essentials take a pay cut during the slowdown just like their non-governmental counterparts. Maybe, just maybe, this pressure on the government might cause the conditions to change. A policy of this nature might make our politicians more sympathetic towards stupid policies like extending the mandated shut downs of businesses to control fake viruses like the COVID-19. Think about a Congressman or Senator getting his pay cut. Any crisis that could be solved by the government would get some serious attention.

In the beginning of the virus I agreed with the shut down. Now that we have more information about it I am totally in favor of opening all businesses, schools, churches, and public gatherings. Why? Because we now know that the virus is not the killer it was being painted to be. In the beginning we had no tests to determine if we had the virus, now we do, and the number of cases keeps growing as more people are tested, but the death rate is still low, and the hospitals can still handle things.

Some will argue with me that I am a heartless cruel being. That I am a proponent of killing off the older people in the crowd. Frankly, have you seen some of the people we lose all sanity over by keeping them alive? Age wise, I am one of them. I have personally cared for two wives who were in the vulnerable age group. Both could have benefited by a earlier death. My first love, Barbara suffered a heart attack that should have killed her, but science and medicine saved her. I was grateful to still have her. The quality of her life after her release from the hospital was about a one on a scale of one to ten with ten being the best life ever. The complications she lived with for the next two years were many and terrible, but her desire to live out weighed her suffering. Ultimately she realized the life she lived was not worth the effort. One week after she pulled the plug on herself she died. The second wife lived a downhill road with Alzheimer’s. She began losing her memory in 2014, and finally died in 2019 after five years of continuous deterioration. She couldn’t speak, walk, or take care of herself, nor did it bother her to be that way. At the end her body began the downhill slide when her skin deteriorated and she was decaying, but still breathing, and taking some fluids. It wasn’t pretty. Do I sound pathetic? Yes, I do. I loved these women and went out of my way to keep them alive to be with me. I missed them when they finally passed, but death was a gift to them.

I have told this story because I have seen people in nursing homes hanging on but not enjoying life anymore. They suffer but enjoy it. Some of them see it religiously, they suffer because God wants them to. Without suffering they won’t get into heaven.

My current attitude about COVID-19 is that if I get it, so what? Maybe I’ll survive, but if I don’t it is because it is my time to leave earth. I believe that any time man screws with nature as they do with modern medicine we lose something. You will argue with me that modern medicine has extended our life span. Yes, maybe it has, but modern medicine still has a ton of work to do to cure all the diseases that cause death. Each one gets more complicated and expensive to undergo a cure. New diseases are identified everyday, and the job to cure them is monumental. Modern medicine will struggle with saving people with or without COVID.

In the meantime, I will take some precautions to avoid situations that may compromise my health. I will continue to wear a mask in public places where people are close together. It won’t be for my protection it will be for yours. I will use common sense to deal with COVID. I no longer need daily press conference to tell me what is being done to protect me. I read the daily statistics and become confused as to what they mean, therefore I quit looking. The bottom line is that the virus is out there, people will get it, some will get sick, some will die, but the planet will survive. In other words, it is time to use your common sense to guide your life.

Exactly My Sentiments

The very first eMail I opened this morning was a piece which I am posting below. The man who wrote this is a few years younger than me but he represents the thinking of millions of Americans. BLM is a communist front designed to take down our country. Those responsible for inventing BLM-Black Lives Matter are Obama and Soros. Neither of whom is a true American. Most blacks in the country shy away from them because they represent something black Americans are not.

Things I Don’t Understand

by Joseph M. Valenzano

June 24, 2020.

1. Rioters and protesters tore down the monuments to Francis Scott Key, author of the Star-Spangled Banner, our National Anthem, and the statue of Father Junipero Serra, founder of the Spanish Missions in California. The monument to Christopher Columbus in NYC was defaced as was St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The New York Museum of Natural History just decided to remove the statue of Teddy Roosevelt, which has stood at the entrance of the museum since 1940.  It seems that young revolutionaries want to rewrite our history, but how is that possible? You cannot erase history; you can only learn from it. George Santayana once wrote, “those who ignore the lessons of history are condemned to repeat it.” So, I am wondering, if we consciously try to erase history and rewrite it as we believe it should have been, how will we ever learn of the mistakes we made in the past so that they will not be made again? But here’s a thought: Why not get back to teaching history instead of advocacy in schools?

 2. So, if a police officer shoots a criminal after being assaulted by that criminal, it is the cop’s fault, but if a criminal shoots someone, it’s the gun’s fault? Help me understand that, please.

  3. I have lived in America for all my 75 years. I am probably old-fashioned, but it has been my experience that police typically leave you alone if you are not doing illegal stuff. So here is another thought: How about teaching our kids to be responsible for their actions and respect police, adults, and senior citizens? This is a process that begins in the home.

 4. Does Black Lives Matter (BLM) include aborted black babies, murdered black police officers, black on black killings, or does BLM respond only when a white police officer kills a black man or woman?

 5. So, now the classic movie Gone with the Wind has been removed, and high school students no longer are asked to read the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain or To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.. They are banished from school curricula. That is sad and a significant loss from an educational perspective. Does anyone remember Hattie McDaniel? She was the first black American actress to win an Oscar for her performance in – wait for it – Gone with the Wind. Is her name and performance now cast aside and gone forever because of the new revolutionaries telling us what we can and cannot read or see?

 6. Rest in Peace Aunt Jemimah (1893-2020) and Uncle Ben (1943-2020). Cause of death: Liberal Stupidity. Whatever happened to Common Sense?

 7. Why would President Barack Hussein Obama have a Presidential Library? What the hell would it contain?

 8. In the last four years, can you name any piece of legislation, any program that benefited America and Americans coming from the Democrats? What exactly have they done over the last four years? Come to think of it, Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for President and former VP under Barack Hussein Obama, is an enigma. He has been in government 51 years! What exactly has he done for America and Americans in all those years? What is his platform?

9. The Prophet Mohammed was a pedophile, murderer, and slave trader. Why are there no riots to burn down mosques? How about the Pyramids of Egypt? Slaves built them. Why are there no riots and efforts to destroy these? Ditto for The Great Wall of China.

 10. Maybe its just me, but if I have a problem with my faucets, drains, or showers, I call a plumber to help. If I have a question about taxes, I call my accountant. If I have a fever or upset stomach, I call my doctor. But if I want advice on politics or economics or international relations, I would not be inclined to call Lebron James or any other athlete. How about you?

 11. I read where Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was laughing, and high-fiving people for scamming the Trump Rally in Oklahoma and having teens and others register for advance tickets to it and not show up. Fascinating! But here’s a question: If these liberal democrats can do this, what will they do with mail-in voting? 

12. I find it ironic and a bit humorous that the very first thing the insurrectionist wanna-be tough guys who took over a six square block segment of Seattle did was – wait for it – build a wall! Why did they do that? (Don’t answer, I think I figured it out) 

13. I read earlier today that rioters in California tore down the statue of Ulysses S. Grant, former President and General, who defeated the Confederacy and wreaked havoc on the KKK in South Carolina. He was vehemently opposed to slavery.  Wonder what he did so wrong as to elicit the ire of the mob? Could it be that the mob was not so concerned about Blacks but more concerned about simply tearing down everything to do with America?  Makes you really wonder about just what BLM and Antifa stand for, doesn’t it? And who the hell oversees these well-orchestrated riots? You see, a mob has a leader, so who is the leader? George Soros? Barack Hussein Obama and OFA? Someone is calling the shots to undermine our way of life. I’d really like to know. Wouldn’t you?  

14. Sometimes I find myself wondering why we are so obsessed with trying to find intelligent life on other planets when we can’t seem to find intelligent life right here on Mother Earth?  

15. Someone needs to explain to me why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports 57,000 COVID-19 deaths, and the media reports over 120,000 deaths. Why the disparity? Equally, I would like to know the distinction between those who died from COVID-19 and those who died with COVID-19. Am I just not smart enough to understand these things? But here is what I do understand and for which I need no explanation: Americans live in the greatest country on planet earth, and I have been all over this world so I can make that statement. We the People have the most excellent medical care in the world.We the People earned more Nobel Prizes than any nation earth by a factor of ten. We the People have pioneered the exploration of space and are innovators in technology. We the People have accumulated more wealth and prosperity than any other country on the globe and have the highest standard of living known to man. We the People have abolished slavery, prevailed in two World Wars, and saved Europe twice in the 20th century. Instead of reaping the spoils of war, we invested in rebuilding Europe and Japan in the aftermath of the devastation of WWII. And we did all of this in 244 years as compared to other nations whose histories go back millennia! America is a free country and, if you don’t like it here, you don’t need to destroy other people’s property and businesses to satisfy your primal, uncontrolled emotions, nor do you have to tear down our historical monuments. You can pack up and leave. I’m just guessing about this, but I bet if I looked carefully, I would not see any anchors on your ass keeping you here.

 In a few days, we will be celebrating Independence Day, the Birthday of our Nation. It is a golden opportunity to put aside personal differences and salute the fact that we all wake up every day as free men and women thanks to those who paid the ultimate price for that privilege. Happy Birthday, America!
