There has been a lot going on in the news. I’d like to move away from it, but the big stories have pulled me in over the past few days.

A man on the moon in 1969 was a proud American moment.

Since that time, both major parties have taken turns in power and have squandered credibility that would help in the current situation.

We were told we needed to send troops to Vietnam.

Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

Some may have become skeptical along the way.

Love to see the press, school teachers, sports announcers and politicians come clean on how any of this was linked to American rights and freedoms or defending the constitution.

Leaving Afghanistan – Lies About American Rights And Freedoms


The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911.

We haven’t won a war since.

The Dept. of Defense has a truly poor track record with undeclared wars. This record goes back to 1949, the year DOD was established.


Show up early to wait in line and squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube out at the airport?

What keeps the terrorists of the GWOT from creating a disruption at the back end of the screening line?

Look for newspeople to ask zero questions in this area.

Was It A Fake War On Terror?


Much of the TV news reporting we get today is sort of a press release style of reporting where a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest policy update, drug bust/federal grant money award, etc.

Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

4 Stories The Puget Sound Press Will Not Question Or Report On


I do not speak out against vaccines or anyone who takes them. Ditto for mask wearing indoors or out.

My concerns are not specific to any political party, personality or group identity.

Before the internet and social media-

If different people selected different churches to attend, or they decided to attend no church at all, was this because of misinformation?

Americans were never meant to agree on matters of a personal nature.

FDA Approved


Stopped by a WA bar on Friday. Masks must be worn to enter. Masks come off inside and people carry on as always. Even for people with a completely neutral mind, much of all this seems like just going through the motions.

My personal preference would be for business owners to make business decisions. Customers would support or walk away from the businesses of their choosing. If people want to sit at the bar and drink, let’s leave that option open.


A One Size Fits All Society?

TV newspeople tend to report one side of the story. Would TV newspeople (prior to the protest phase) be willing to interview people from various sides of an issue?

A large number of news stories Re: parents showing up at back to school protests tell us that different people believe different things.

Allowing people to voluntarily opt in or out may ease the tension-similar to the way people select the church they attend, or chose to attend no church at all.

People who wish to wear masks and get vaccinated may do so at any time.

None of these images belong to me. I did not create them. They were shared on the web.
