Forty Americans died in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on 9/11. They were the passengers on United Flight 93 out of Newark International Airport.
At 8:44, just four minutes before Flight 11 hit the North Tower. Flight 93 climbed to its cruising altitude and was then taken over violently by the terrorists.
In the moments that followed the hijacking, passengers on the plane had been able to call loved ones on the ground. The Flight 93 passengers were informed of the bad news — the planes were being used as missiles. The planes were being flown purposely into US landmarks.
Shortly after the…
Have you ever driven past a graveyard and asked yourself how many people lying in rest there died because they were lied to by big business or politicians?
To be honest, I never have, either. After reading an article today about Caleb Wallace, a self-proclaimed “Freedom Defender” against mask restrictions, I think I might start asking.
The question surely to be posed, however, won’t be about whether people were lied to or not. …
I don’t know many Karens to be honest, but I know women like them. Recently, one lashed out at me in all of the glory and all of the raging-angst of the countless YouTube videos. Like one of the “scarecrows” stalking the land seeking to dissuade anyone from discussing racial improprieties, Karen ripped into me:
All this white and racist BS is all in your head, the murder of blacks is mainly by blacks against themselves! So Stfu you are an evil Democrat trying to destroy America (Karen N Post)!!!
The white-mob-morality police had spoken. How dare I, a white…
Residents of Missouri have seen COVID infection rates go up by 560% in the past month. People are now scrambling to get vaccinated because friends and family members are suffer. Many of these people formerly didn’t believe in COVID — or, the “science of it.” I have heard people make this comment about the “science” before.
“The science doesn’t add up.”
When asked to explain “What science?” they tell me about how it’s just like a bad cold, or that the FDA hasn’t approved the vaccination, so it is undoubtedly “murky science.” Anyway, they say, “I don’t trust the government.”
America’s nightmare continues. Well, we have a handful of them underway at the moment. The one I am writing about today, however, has to do with Trump’s most recent musings to a group of Foxified Americans at a recent rally:
Donald Trump, who still falsely claims that President Joe Biden “stole” the 2020 election, made unsubstantiated claims that mail-in ballots would be used to rig the recall election in the Democrats’ favor.
Yes, I know, that wasn’t a nice thing to say. Shame on me and all that other good stuff; but here is the problem, I don’t care what they think of me. They aren’t worthy of my caring. They are traitors. They are mean, sad and very un-Christian.
I am talking about the whole lot of them: the anti-maskers, the anti-vaxxers, the deniers of the obvious. What makes me write this rant, you may ask? She does.
If you are a mayor of a small community in Florida, it’s your responsibility to ensure the smooth running of the town. Let’s say you notice a significant rise in COVID-19 cases and so make the decision to employ the resources provided to you by the federal government.
Not an easy decision for sure, you pass a mandate that all town employees and employees in businesses over x-number must vaccinate. If you do this, trouble will find you. The long, out-stretched hands of bureaucratic authoritarianism will get you.
Bad, local-community, bad!
According the lunatic-fringe on the right, it is better…
In an article I recently wrote entitled “A Week in Trump Country,” some Trumpist supporters mocked the notion that such a place actually existed. Blaming CNN for demonizing Trump supporters, one commenter suggested that Trump country existed only in the heads of angry and scared Democrats.
Unfortunately, those Trumpist supporters are wrong. There is a place called Trump country and if it is not exactly a certain geographical spot on the map, it is certainly a frame of mind.
Many commenters, however, agreed that indeed Trump country exists. The consensus was that Trumpist lands could usually be found in white…
If you are over thirty-five, then likely you don’t forget where you were on that morning twenty years ago. Over one billion people worldwide, the most watched live event in mankind, will never forget the images of that morning.
Tragically ironic, the date 9/11 consists of the same numbers the emergency services 9-1–1 does. Flooded with so many calls for help in those two short hours, the service repeatedly collapsed leaving many to wonder if anyone knew that they were about to die. …
Yes, I know this is a picture of Bruce Lee, the legendary Kung Fu artist. He was a man who could pretty much outrun a bullet in his sleep and leap over a tall building in a single bound. The image of this Lee has been chosen because honestly I think he might have had a better chance at defeating the Taliban in Afghanistan than the other more infamous Lee.
Donald Trump was upset that the Virginia statue of the Lee was taken down and so he showed us his cards — again.
The other Lee is, of course, Robert…
