Where you were vs where you are going

As a kid, I remember my parents drove a blue Ford station wagon. This was a time before the ‘soccer mom mini van’ or SUV’s, this was the time when housewives drove the station wagon and the husbands drove a truck or other car. These older station wagons had a folding rear seat. They had a front bench seat, a middle bench seat and a small folding bench seat in the cargo area. The odd thing about that last seat is that it faced backwards. When my grandparents came to visit, we would all cram into that wagon to go (where ever). I was usually stuck in that back bench and it was a little disorienting at first looking where we had been instead of looking where we were going. It is helpful to know where we were but more important to know we are going. 

As my father was in the Navy, I was encouraged to join the Sea Cadets instead of the Boy Scouts. Nothing wrong with the scouts, it’s just that my dad wanted to share a little part of his life with me as a sailor. Among learning things like tying knots, swimming and first aid, we had to learn how to read a map. With a map, you should be able to find out where you are in order to find your way to where you want to go. A compass or knowing how you got there is very helpful but not as necessary as knowing where you are. 

As I get older, I like to remember the 1980’s when I was in my early 20’s. I could do things that would put me in traction if I tried them today. So it is fun to dwell on the past and think ‘what if’, but it is not helpful to me today. It is more helpful to know where you are and where you are going instead of where you were. Just like sitting in that rear facing seat in the station wagon, to dwell on where you were might be fun but not helpful in were you are going. 

So look at the American society today. Our society is fractured into several pieces being perpetuated by oppertunists that become more powerful the more people consider themselves victims. Black people who’s ancestors may have been slaves, Native American Indians who’s ancestors may have been displaced by war, Latin Americans who’s ancestors may have been displaced from land. All of these groups demanding reperations for actions taken hundreds of years ago acting like current victims. Things that happened 50, 100 or 200+ years ago, these groups are dwelling on them, focusing on where their ancestors were instead of focusing on where they ARE and where they are GOING. 

The leaders of these groups are keeping their followers enslaved by anger over what happened instead of focusing on where they should be going.

My father taught me that in a fight, maintain control over your emotions. When angry, you are more likely to be focused on the wrong things. You get tunnel vision. In a fight, the first person to allow anger to control him will most likely loose. By angrily dwelling on the past, they have lost focus on where they are and where they are going. Like being on the ocean and not knowing where you are or where you are going, you become a slave to where the ocean will take you. These ‘victims’ are lost and become more and more reliant on these so called ‘leaders’ of their groups. Just like I was reliant on my father as he drove that Ford wagon and having faith that he knew where he was taking us, I could only see where I had been. Now that I am an adult, I am responsible for my lifes directions, or misdirections. It matters not where I was, but only where I am and where I am going. I am not a victim but a free man responsible for my own actions on my journey through life. 

Are you a victim? Take inventory of what you have and where you are NOW and determine where you want to go and stop crying about where you have been. You can’t change the past but you can effect your future.

Climate Reality

When I was very young, my parents took us to Marineland in California. After seeing the shows and feeding the dolphins, I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I joined the Cousteau Society, got several books on marine biology and oceanography and got a large aquarium for my bedroom. I was hooked on watching Cousteau TV show, and reading books on the subject. I had my future planned out… go to community college to get my basic classes out of the way, transfer to Cal State Long Beach to get my Masters, apply to spend the summer on the research oceanographic ship and transfer to Scripps Institute of Oceanography for my doctorate. I still remember what my doctoral thesis was going to be on; how much oxygen is created by the phytoplankton living within the first foot of the ocean surface. At the time, there was a great controversy over the Brazilian rainforest and the destruction of many square miles to create farms and how that would effect the amount of oxygen for the world. You see, I believed the ocean had a bigger effect on the jetstream, weather patterns and oxygen production than the Brazilian rainforest does, which we don’t own and can’t control.

But sometimes life gets in the way of our plans, and long story short, I ended up becoming a field service representative for the worlds largest copier company… I won’t say who but “go big red X”.

Nearly 40 years later, I ran into this article ( https://earthsky.org/earth/how-much-do-oceans-add-to-worlds-oxygen) and (https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/features/Phytoplankton)

You see, I am still interested in the topic. I don’t believe Al Gore and all those other liars about man made global warming. Check these article out:





I believed, and still do, that there is much about our planet that we don’t yet understand. What seems like a long time to us is an afternoon to the planet. That everything is cyclical. That nature has much more effect on our planet than we do. Check these out:


The earth’s climate can be affected by natural factors outside the climate system

  • SOLAR OUTPUT– Even small changes in solar activity can affect the earth’s atmosphere in surprisingly large and complex ways – the researchers say.
  • EARTH’S ORBIT AROUND THE SUN- The earth’s orbit around the sun is an ellipse, not a circle but the ellipse changes shape. Sometimes they are almost round and the earth moves around the same distance from the sun as it is around its orbit. When this happens earth becomes invisible from the sun and is away from the sun. It contributes to warming of the climate.
  • CHANGES IN VOLCANIC ACTIVITIES– Volcanic eruption occurs when it releases a lot of Sulphur dioxide (SO2), water vapour, ashes, and dust in the atmosphere. Although a volcanic activity may last for only a few days, however, large amounts of gas and climate patterns can be affected for years.
  • OCEAN CURRENTS– Oceans are a key component of climate system covering approximately 71% of the earth and absorbing almost twice the radiation in the form of the atmosphere or the surface of the earth.
  • Ocean currents transmit huge amounts of heat throughout the planet – the atmosphere in almost equal amounts. But the oceans are surrounded by dirt plates; hence heat is transmitted through channels through the water. Therefore, these ocean currents become responsible and contributes to climate change causes.






If we stop and think about it logically, and look to true science we see that human have very little effect on our earths climate. Thats not to say we have no effect. It would be like pouring a 5 gallon bucket of ice water in the lake, we have an effect but it is very minor. The sun, volcanic activity, tectonic plate shift, the earths core and the jet stream have more effect than does man. I am all for reducing our carbon emissions for cleaner local air and cleaner water, but increasing my taxes and claiming my driving a truck is the reason polar bears are nearly extinct is a patent lie. The dirty littlesecret is that there are more not less polarbears now than 30 years ago. https://www.npr.org/2013/02/02/170779528/the-inconvenient-truth-about-polar-bears

Can mankind control the sun? How about the spin of the earths core? The fact is that the Brazilian rainforests and the first foot of ocean (phytoplankton) create more oxygen in the world. 

And to blame Americans for the majority of polution is a flat out lie to make you feel guilty and let socialist minded politicians pass more useless laws that only control you but does nothing to help the environment.



Fact is, This chart indicates the amount of ocean polution comes from China, Indonesia and India with America contributing the least. Any amount is unacceptible but telling restaurant guests they can’t have a straw because some sea turtle will die is rediculous. I remember as a kid using paper straws. They are biodegradable. Paper grocery bags. I used them to make book covers for my school books. And those too are biodegradable. And corn based plastics https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/corn-plastic-to-the-rescue-126404720/

are as usefull as some oil based plastics and they too are biodegradable.

Leading climatologists agree that climate is effected by energy absorbed or reflected by the earths surface.

Now we hear a multitude of fires are burning in the Brazilian Rain Forest. These are not natural but man created fires. It turns out that there is a large disagreement between the Brazilian government and environmentalists. The Brazilian government is encouraging these fires to be set to create farmland and pastures. 

For many millenia, the Brazilian Rainforest has produced 20% of the earths oxygen. Many scientists believe there are yet to bediscovered plant and animal species still living in the rain forest including a possible cure for cancer. For the many millenia that the rain forest has been vertually fire resistant, However not fire proof. with over 9500 fires being set last week alone on purpose by activists being encouraged by the Brazilian government in hopes of creating farmland, these fires are unlikely to stop any time soon. 

So it is 10’s of thousands of fires set on purpose in a country we have no control over more than Americans driving gas engine vehicles that could be concidered contributing to global climate change. The planet will scar and heal, but in earth time not human time.

Maybe it is time to tell these power hungry politicians and scientists, that lie only to increase funding for their theories, to take a hike and sit down with world leaders and scientists to develope REAL common sense solutions that will work in China, India, Indonesia as well as Russia and America. And leave my gas engine truck alone. It passes smog every year even after the gov’t makes the criteria harder.

The Thinking Tinker

I have a CLUE

Remember the game “clue”? As a kid, my family played this board game. One game it was Col. Mustard in the library with the candlestick. The next game it was Mrs Peacock in the Ballroom with the lead pipe. In the game, as in the 1985 movie of the same name, there were 6 possible murderers, several rooms and 6 possible weapons. A candlestick, rope, lead pipe, dagger, pistol and the pipe wrench. And the people; Mrs Peacock, Col. Mustard, Professor Plum, Miss Scarlett, Mr. Green and Mrs. White. But the original british version had Rev. Green, it was the North American version changed it to Mr. Green. 

The 1985 movie was genious because there were 3 different endings and you had to go to each different ending to see the mystery answered. The game was great because it forced you the game player to use deductive reasoning. It made you think, and thinking is something people don’t do much these days. 

Each of those 6 tools were used to kill Mr. Boddy, Dr. Black in the british version. The point is, each of those 6 tools could be used to kill. So why such hatred towards one specific tool, the pistol?

The ugly inconvienient truth is that out of all the deaths caused by the gun, less than 1% is from mass shooting, at least the mass shooting reported my the left wing media. 60% by suicide, less than 1% by accident and 38% by homicide and FBI crime statistics proove over 50% of those homicides are gang on gang violence with stolen, illegally aquired handguns. 

But statistics show that 0.00925 % of Americans will die by a gun. Take away gang related murders, and you have 0.00156%. Now take away suicides and that number becomes 0.000936%. By comparison, 1% of Americans will die because of medical malpractice. That means statistically, you are 9 and a half times more likely to die by doctors than the gun. 

But history has even different numbers to show. 1929 Russia started a power struggle which ended in total gun confiscation and 10’s of millions of executions.  The Ottoman empire 1911 total gun confiscation followed by over 1.5 million executions. Germany 1938 started mass executions and genocide after total gun confiscation which ended in over 13 million Jews and countless more deaths caused by WWII. China 1935 over 20 million executed after gun control/confiscation. Cambodia 1956 Pol Pot executed over 1 million executed after gun confiscation. 

Despots and dictators know that in order to subjugate a populace, guns MUST be removed from the general population. 

Adolf Hitler wrote this: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police”.

Literally, you are more likely to die after gun control/confiscation than before. So, do you want to become a Mr. Boddy? I think it was communism in America with gun control.

California, the ugly truth

California, the ugly truth

It wasn’t too long ago that you heard ‘go west young man’. In the mid 1850’s, John Soule expressed this sentiment in the Terre Haute express. That sentiment was repeated in the New York Tribune on July 13th, 1865 by Horace Greeley. With so many men returning from the Civil war, there was a need for these people to homestead. To make a life for themselves and their families. It was a time of imagination and expansion in America. 

This sentiment was even felt in the TV comedy series ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ in the theme song “…his kinfolk said Jed move away from there. Said California is the place you ought to be, so he loaded up his truck and moved to Beverly, Hills that is….”

I grew up in California, the southern part near Los Angeles. I had relatives who lived in the Northern part from San Jose to Merced so I had an opportunity to experience alot of what California had to offer. From snow skiing to water skiing. Lake fishing and ocean fishing. I explored mountains and bargains in stores. Yes, California had alot to offer. Many people flocked to California because the land was literally loaded with opportunity. It was the “bread basket” of the world yielding everything from oranges to olives and every crop you could plant. It was as if God himself blessed the land. 

But as always happens, corrupt people also moved west looking for an opportunity to take what was not theirs. Included in these politicians moved in to force their will and these nefarious people included politicians who promised their constituents that if they voted and trusted them, they would protect the people. 

Now, somehow the same political party that was responsible for segrigation and the KKK made it seem as if they were the political party that would help those same people out of poverty. Yes, you heard right, the democrat party was behind the KKK and all those killings of black people and segregation and seperation of whites and blacks. And the murder of Martin Luther King Jr was performed by a democrat and lifetime thug James Earl Ray. And an interesting little tidbit, Martin Luther King Jr was a republican.

Now, any organization is like an organism in that their only job is to survive and grow. This is true of any company or government agency. You will never hear a government agency claim “our job is done. you can disband us now. you don’t need us anymore or see a tax end. As a proof of that, look at you phone bill. There is a tax that is to help repay the Spanish-American war. This was supposed to be a temporary tax yet there is no sunset in sight for this tax that is supposed to repay a war that ended in 1898. 

So look at the democrat party that is a party of the poor. They have to have poor people as constituents to stay alive. They need a continually growing voter base that will always be in a continuous state of poverty. And what better than having thousands of illegal under educated and inexpierienced aliens crossing our southern border a day and promising them more than they will ever have in their shit-hole country?

Now the democratic politicians will claim that we are all from immigrants and that these are just poor, impoverished people trying to escape a bad situation and we should be open to ALL immigrants and have open borders. America is asovereign country with the obligation to control its borders. The government has a long history of limiting the number of immigrants that were legally allowed to enter this country vis-a-vi The Immigration act of 1924 among others. And remember, we are talking about LEGAL IMMIGRATION into this country, not making your first act breaking the laws of the country you wish to reside in. 

I do not give a pass to the republican party who could not ever be comfortable with winning and always find a way to give a win, no matter how little, to the democratic party. People like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan who were feckless morons who refused to take the message of the voters and support Donald Trump with the building of the Wall to maintain our Sovereignty. And the people of California voted in yet another socialist moron in Gavin Newsom (that replaced the illegal 4 term governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown who was both the youngest gov and the oldest gov) who continually stomps on the US Constitution and the California state Constitution. But what do you expect when the population of Los Angeles alone is more than many states combined, that is just Los Angeles county (10 million plus). Out of 50 states, Los Angeles county alone has more people than 42 other states. You can easily see why the electoral college is so important. And California has a population of 40 million which is more than any other state in the union. So with a state so populated why is California almost bankrupt?

Illegal immigration is a large contributing factor. With California providing so much for illegal immigrants, they have become cash strapped. Add to that the number of middle class people leaving this now shit-hole state, that removes even more tax money from the state forcing California to increase taxes again which fuels even more middle class to leave the state. The state is not yet bancrupt but it is currently insolvent which will lead to bancrupcy very soon. That’s because of a dirty little secret of an underfunded state pention program where fire, police and other state workers make more money in retirement than almost all the private sector retirees. While not being bancrupt because by law a state cannot go bancrupt, the state is morally bancrupt as are most, if not all the California politicians are corrupt i.e. Nancy Palosi, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer et al.

So, now the sentiment is to go east to Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and even New Mexico. Some go north to Oregon and Washington but the Californians all make the same mistake the illegal immigrants do, they bring their poor corrupted politics and attitudes with them to infect the unsuspecting states that they move to. Like a cancer, socialism will destroy and has destroyed every places it has been implimented in history

So, while I still have relatives in my birth state California, I would not be supprised if a large earthquake swallowed Sacramento whole taking the majority of corrupt politicians with it thereby giving California a chance to correct its mistakes of the past. And while at it, the earthquake can take all of Hollyweird with it.
