Let’s Arm The Teachers

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Uncategorized

Adding More Crazy to Crazy Already

I just walked in the door, been a busy day. Turned on my computer, opened Twitter, and there it was. probably the stupidiest, most ignorant, dumb fucktard in the history of the United States. I'm sure I wouldn't have to name him, because 3/4's of you already know, but for those blind mother fuckers, It's Trump!

This idiot has decided that arming teachers, oh, excuse me, well trained, armed teachers. This is a bad idea no matter how you look at it, but let's take this one point at a time. 

  1. This will require a teacher to wear a sign all the time, stating, I'm the Good Guy! That's for the swat and police teams, so the teacher doesn't end up being shot.
  2. The teacher will now have to not only take training to be a teacher, but also as a marksman. Is the school, state, or the teacher themselves paying for this?Also, will they be paid more for taking this training and guarding a school against crazy bastards who decide they want to shoot some students?
  3. Will the teachers have to supply their own gun and ammunition? 
  4. Has trump lost his fucking mind altogether? 

I'm sorry folks, but this idea does not make any sense. Teachers are working now, without proper teaching aides, lack of books, supplies. Some teachers even buy supplies themselves, which should not be happening. Putting pressure on a teacher to look after the complete safety of a school, guess whats going to happen? The next crop of shool shooters are going to end up being teachers who snapped! 

All this is, is and easy out for trump and his party. People want solutions, viable solutions, yet this is the best he and his insane party can come up with? This is just him throwing a bone hoping it will take the pressure off, so he can concentrate on other things, about trying to keep his ass out of jail for selling his country to the russians, who by the way haven't had sanctions put on them, which should have been done months ago. 

I really wish we could all come together and figure out what would be a viable solution, that all would be happy about. That isn't going to happen, because the divide is so wide between opposing sides views and opinions. I do know it is high time that these differences have to be resolved, and action taken to try and stop these mass shootings. 

Arming teachers is not the way to go about this. Keep looking for a solution, stop trying to sell another dumb idea. 

Is It Free Speech, or is It Slander?

Posted 6 CommentsPosted in Unbelieveable but True

A Little Background First

A few years ago, my wife took a fall and hurt her foot and ankle. She and I went to the emergency room where she was X-rayed and examined by a new, young doctor. My wife has had several operations over the years and has had to go to the emergency room several times. I don't know if this young doctor was trying to be a hero or what, but he began asking me several questions which led me and my wife both to believe she was actually a victim of spousal abuse. 

My wife spoke up to him and told him off, and her and I both got up and left. He had also diagnosed my wife wrong. He said it was just a severe strain. This was on a Saturday. Monday my wife received a call from the hospital asking her to come in for a cast because she had two broken bones in her foot. 

The Beginning and The End

I made the mistake of writing about this incident on a blog site I was a member of. A toxic site, filled with religious zealots, armchair warriors, and people whose political views are something out of this world. Then there were the trolls.

When I had first joined the site, I had several friends (online friends) who I enjoyed reading and sharing comments. Of course, the trolls would drop in from time to time, just to try and annoy, some of whom were very good at it. One in particular literally stalked me from one blog to another whenever I commented, and always managed to put something negative and usually untrue as comments to me. I had this particular person blocked, by they could annoy me by visiting those blogs I had. They also managed to read anything I did post through friends of theirs... other trolls and just plain nuisance. 

So I had written my post about my wife's injury, and mentioned the suspicions of this young doctor. The next thing I saw, was this troll had written a post stating I was a woman and spouse abuser. Of course, the other trolls jumped onboard and made my life on that site misery. So I went from writing family oriented posts to mainly rants, I didn't see the point of writing my usual fare only to have it turned into something it wasn't. This was also one of the reasons I decided to buy hosting and start my own personal blog. 

The Conclusion

So with all the above being said, what brought me to write this was an article I was directed to reading a tweet on Twitter this morning. Apparently, a comedian is being sued by her ex because he says she accused him of abuse in her stand up. From what I took from the article, all she said was she was very sorry that her marriage had broken up. I was a little confused and sent a reply tweet asking if I had missed something in the article or if something had been left out, and I still haven't received a reply. 

Anyway, the article was asking for donations for this comedian's legal fees, it is a go fund me page. The title had suggested, whether what the comedian had done, was it a case of Free speech being censored. 

As you can tell from what I had written above, I believe that sometimes free speech crosses the line and borders on slander, and can be very harmful to people at times. Now I don't know if this comedian did cross that line, because like I said, it seemed I missed something in that article, or at least that is what I am assuming. Anyway, if you'd like to skim that article, it can be read HERE 

I think when it comes right down to it, I would have had a much better case for libel/slander if I would have pursued legal action those few years ago...

Have You Been Stealing?

Stealing and not Knowing?

Being a blogger over several years, I have come to realize I have used content that I shouldn't have. Well, I should have done more research before I used that content. You may ask what content? Pictures, images, that I foolishly downloaded for posts, and never even knew what I was doing was actually stealing. 

That is no excuse. If you are operating a blog, you should know the rules. I never steal anyones words, everything I post is original and my own, but there are many people who often copy and paste articles in whole, even though they give credit to the original author, and think it is perfectly fine. 

It isn't! You are allowed to post a paragraph or two, with a link leading back to the original article. The reason this is important is that many of those articles are earning the author an income, which usually comes from ads on the site it was originally posted on. So if you take a article in its entirety and post it, even with giving credit to the author, people are bypassing that site, and the author is losing out on possible income. 

Getting back to images, as a blogger we have often been told that readers enjoy visuals along with the written word. I agree, I enjoy blogs much more when there are images, and I try to incorporate images in my posts when I can. As i stated above, I have used images before that I had no idea I shouldn't have, but now I use perfectly fine, legal images. You ask where do I find such images? 

Okay, my go to site for most of my images is Pixabay. They have thousands of images and they are free to use. Although they do ask if you wouldn't mind giving credit to the photographer, it isn't necessary, but it is a decent thing to do. So now, I often put a little credit under the pics, unless they are my own. 

There are many such sites as pixabay, and for a blogger they are a godsend. pictures can add so much more to a blog post, after all it has been said, "A picture can tell a thousand words." So if you are struggling to find pics for use in your posts, here is three of the top places I use to grab images when I'm stuck without any of my own:

  1. Pixabay
  2. Pexels
  3. Unsplash

Now if you need to edit these photos to fit where you want to place them, there are plenty of free editing platforms and software, many use Picmonkey  which is free to use and has many good editing features. Canva is also a good site to use for  editing and  they also have free templates which can be used for many purposes. 

I do most of my own editing with a free software I found online called Photoscape. It has many great editing capabilities, free to use, and I find it easy to use. 

So, if you have been stealing, and didn't know, I hope these few links I have left here will be of use to you. Like I have said, they are free to use, and have great images and features. 

What’s Wrong With A Free Opportunity?

An Expanding Industry-Hemp Oil Products

There seems to be some problem when trying to get people to try something that is absolutely free. I guess there are many who hear the word free, and thing the opportunity is only as good as the cost to start up, so if it is free, then it must be worth nothing. 

WRONG! What many people don't understand, is there are companies who depend on others to help them sell their products or services, otherwise known as affiliate marketing. I do realize some things that are given for free are worth just that-nothing. Then you come across a little gem that you are given the opportunity for free, and you can actually make a killing just by promoting the product, or products.

That is just what this new and expanding company is offering, a free opportunity for ANYONE, just promote and you can have your own business online, and it isn't going to cost you a single cent to start making money, and it's all for free. You do have the option to buy the products yourself, at a discounted price if you so desire. They are actually very good products and have been tested and proven.

 CTFO, as the name implies, Changing The Future Outcome. That future is theirs, and for those who decide that a free opportunity is sometimes worth more than the free to start. Get onboard today, in an industry still in its infant stages, but promises to be so much more in a short time.

Survival and Conspiracy Theory

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Everyday Life

Conspiracy???

I'm sure we all have that one friend or acquaintance who has a stack of National Enquirers and believes all he/she reads, sees and hears when it comes to the latest conspiracy theory. The Internet is full of these theories, and every Social Media site you can see them pumped out daily, and the theorists and non-theorists in a constant battle over who is right, and who is wrong.

Some of these ideas are so far-fetched, that anyone who has an IQ above 50 knows this. That is not to say that some theories are loosely based on actual fact. It also has been shown that some conspiracy theories from several years ago have been proven to be fact. Many of these theories revolve around space aliens, assassinations, and the one most common, government cover-ups. 

The sad part of any of these conspiracies eventually being proven is the event has already occurred, and it is now too late to do anything to stop it from happening. 

The Survivalists

Not far behind the conspiracy theorists, are the survivalists. These are the people who expect a great catastrophe to happen at any moment, and have hoarded supplies, such as food and water, equipment and let us not forget weapons. Some of these people have an arsenal that would make some mercenaries jealous. 

These catastrophes take the shape of many events, usually, with a lot of blood being shed, people dying in the streets, or a foreign army invading and taking over. Some even include a nuclear holocaust. If that happens, they had better have a bunker several feet underground lead-lined, and a great many other things to survive, although it's doubtful any of us would survive, we'd either be vaporized or just combust and form a little pile of radioactive ashes... 

I have a friend who has dedicated an entire room to survival. He has enough canned goods to open a store! Hundreds of plastic water bottles waiting to be filled in case of an event happening, although he should realize, if an event happens fast enough, there may not be time to fill them, or for that matter, grab the can opener! 

Non-Preparedness

Anyone who may be reading this, please don't think I'm mocking those who are preparing for the worse. I actually admire their dedication and their initiative. We never know whats around the corner, when the big one will hit, or if someone from another place or land decides they want what we have. 

The problem with preparing for an unknown event is just that! What event is, if it happens, going to occur? Besides, many people today don't have the money or time to prepare for anything but getting up each day and going off to a job they make little money at, and hate! please don't say, "Well, if they have such a bad job, why don't they quit and get a better one?" BECAUSE in todays crappy economic times, there aren't that many around!

Also factor in the people like myself, who although at times finds it hard, I'm an optimist, I look at it as having to get better, and believe that is just what is going to happen!
