Life After Facebook

Everyone who uses Facebook gets ticked off at them every now and again. Too many rules, too much political correctness, heaps and tons of unvetted advertisers, etc etc. A few months back I decided it was time to make a change and started shopping around for another platform. Some years ago I truly enjoyed Facebook but they’ve gotten too big for their britches. And then the other day I evidently broke one of their precious rules and got banned for 24 hours, plus a few other arbitrary “punishments” to keep me in my place. Continue reading

Hey Christians: It’s Not All About You

Image Credit: Me! 🙂

Christians are programmed to believe that not only is their religion the only “true” religion, but that everyone else is involved in a Satanic plot to destroy Christianity and take over the world (or something like that anyway). For those of us who are not buried in the sour mud of Christian ignorance, it’s often annoying to hear them blathering on and on about how they’re persecuted, abused, slighted and ridiculed.

Salvation For Sale?

A couple of months ago I grew frustrated with all the “sponsored posts” (ads) on Facebook. I understand they have to have revenue to operate. But it had reached a point where about every fourth post was an ad (this being with the app on my phone). And so I set out to see if there was anything I could do about it. Continue reading

I Want My Country Back

The last few years have turned the USA upside-down, wrong-side out and ass-backwards. We’ve seen the crazies on both the left and right coming out of the woodwork. Every wacky conspiracy theory imaginable has been tossed out to be batted about on social media and reported on by the news. The People are bleeding money. The government is sucking up our money like a monstrous vacuum cleaner and doling it out to all the wrong people. Where / when / how does it stop?

Mind Your Own Business!

I’d like to to clarify something for those who have misunderstood me in the recent past (because I’ve been a little frustrated & rude lately). First, I absolutely respect your right to believe whatever you see fit to believe. It doesn’t matter what it is, it’s your business not mine. I hope you find comfort and peace within your beliefs. That said, I am not required to respect what you believe. Continue reading

Poisonous Politics And The Pandemic

I’m really getting sick of the BS revolving around the Covid-19 pandemic. Let’s be honest with each other and ourselves for a moment: Yes, the virus is real. No, it’s not some made-up story. And did the Chinese release it intentionally? Maybe, maybe not. That’s for the US intelligence community to decide. What matters to me is that it’s real, it’s here, and it’s hurting people.

The Death Of Haley Richardson

On August 20th, 2021 Haley Richardson, a wife, expectant mother and medical professional died from complications of Covid-19 – two days after the death of her unborn daughter. Her daughter was due in November. She had elected not to be vaccinated because she was uncertain as to what effects the shot might have on her baby. She leaves behind a husband and two year-old daughter. I didn’t know Haley. Never heard of her until her death was reported in the news. But the circumstances surrounding her passing struck a nerve with me. Haley and her daughter could be alive right now. Continue reading
