I wrote this in the middle of June; it is now the end of July. Since then things have happened, but little has changed. I feel compelled to publish this because the average person out there deserves to know and be enlightened about and what no one else is brave enough to say out loud. What no local paper can write because they lack the access, the history, and the interest to publish things that people really need to know. Our local paper publishes history Because This Matters makes history. Who is pulling the strings on the Treasure Coast. Who is the puppet master?
I’m Offended You’re so Easily Offended - Major emotional trespasses every day Hardly a day can go by where we don’t hear of someone being “triggered,” of explosions of micro-aggressions, of pseudo umbrage at faux racism. Near riots of those demanding extra rights at the cost of others giving up some of theirs.
We are back. Yes, you heard that correctly. We stopped writing in hopes that the Pink Pussy Hat Brigade would some how calm down, that somehow the melted and melting snowflakes (is it illegal to use that term yet?) would congeal into some sort of Starbucks pink smoothie crappachino. Hoping against hope that Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chucky Schumer, and the crew would finally calm down like Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Unfortunately, Nurse Ratched armed with a nuclear powered taser would not be able to subdue this army of talking point zombies.

Mr. Trump Goes to Washington
Last night, the Sun set around 6:20 PM EST and rose less than 3 hours later, shortly after 9:00 PM EST. It was Morning again in America. “It’s Morning again in America,” is a phrase that was first used in an ad by Ronald Reagan in 1984. Last night it was a feeling invoked by President Donald J. Trump.
In his first address to Congress, the President was nothing if not presidential. Something, they said he could not be. Once again, Trump has proven them wrong. (more…)

We all have friends and relatives that reside on the far left end of the political spectrum. Talking to them is hard, almost impossible. Facts, reason, and logic hold no sway. It is all about emotion. I feel for them. I see them in the streets calling for violence, wearing ridiculous hats and costumes making them look like body parts best not seen in public. They cannot accept loss because they have never had to accept it before. They have been sheltered by the false beliefs of their superiority.
So, instead of writing to a specific far left progressive liberal after seeing their Facebook post, I decided to write an open letter to all of them. Please feel free to forward. I was under the impression that when we discussed ‘fake news’ and how we should refrain from posting it that you were going to include yourself in the group that should refrain from posting fake news. Through all your postings you have yet to point to anything that President Trump has done that is outside of what he promised that he would do. These pledges garnered him well over the number of Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency, as described in the US Constitution. I only mention this, so you will not have to waste time with the popular vote fallacy, and I will not have to spend time with the number of illegal aliens that voted in California, and in other states, as proved by the recount you and Jill Stein demanded.

Using Flint to Spark an Idea
How much lead is a bad thing? According to the EPA, five parts per billion is “cause for concern.” Meaning that in a billion molecules of water, if 5 of them are lead you have a problem. In Flint, Michigan that number rose to a frightening 27 parts per billion. Flint’s water was deemed undrinkable. So, what does this have to do with immigration? Trust me, as always, I’ll get there.
