Racists….Bigots….Liars….All Races Have Them

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 30-07-2019

I will be the first to admit that the white race has our share of racists and bigots and liars….I wish we did not, but we do. But I do not believe that President Trump is one of them, but he is extremely honest in his answers and some other races jump all over that honesty as racist, mainly because it fits their agenda, which is tearing down Trump.

I am pretty sure that the black race is just as bad as the whites in being racists and bigots. And one member of congress and one extremely vocal public speaker are about as bad as they come in racism and bigotry ….both are black and neither one own up to being racist.

However, that said, both of those parties and myself need to understand that there is a degree of honesty in all of the answers given on both sides. We have to listen to what is being said and evaluate it’s truthfulness and not be so quick to say “racist’.  Can we do that? I doubt that we can also. But we owe it to the world to try.

Transgender…..

I watched a report on TV this morning about trans genders running track, competing against some girls. What a screwed up world. The transgender won…..Surprise, surprise. As I understand this case, the transgender was a boy, competing against some girls and the “it” won. I feel badly that a person feels lost in who they are, but, hey, get over it person…You are either a boy or girl, there is no “tweens”. Your plumbing assignment determines just where you need to be…..We, the general public, allow this type thinking. It’s crazy…. What else can we come up with…maybe human or not human, alien maybe, something else even more far out…..And what is really surprising to me is that we, the general public,  actually go along with this madness and allow it to continue. That is really the most surprising part to me. No one is outraged at this type thinking, well, maybe me and a few others. What a screwed up world….Oh, I said that already….I have no other words…it is screwed up….it is crazy…

Successes vs Failures

On my writings, some of them:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The painting shown  became the cover for my book, “Apaches, Buffalo Soldiers, That Female Reporter and Me”,  my first published book, “Lost in the Black Range” and on the right, The Saga of Zachary Williams, The Sabine Kid”. I enjoyed doing all three books and learned so much about the Apache Indians, about Buffalo Soldiers and their contribution to settling of the western United States, and about the history of our country in getting to where we are today. I came a long way in understanding the Apaches and their way of life and how we made them pay….27 years as prisoners of war in a new environment for them in a different part of America. Learning this and more is my success and the enjoyment of just doing it. Of course, the failure in very  little pay and even less notoriety.

I will settle for the enjoyment of the writings any day and even hope for more words to come to me to write until my fingers and mind cannot operate any longer, that the writing will improve with time and that wisdom in word choices will come.

And lastly, let me just say to the one to whom credit is due: Thank you Lord Jesus….

 

 

On my paintings, or at least a few of them:

Successes:

The painting of some of my rocks….Then a picture from memory of the house my wife was raised in….Then a picture of an abandoned home site near Portales, NM and is now a field of yellow flowers…I was so happy to have done them….

Failure of these paintings….No money, of course, and very few atta boys….But I’m still working on improving and doing more in the future….Who knows…..Thank you Lord Jesus  for letting me believe in myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immigrants….Send Them Home With Money

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 14-07-2019

I goggled the cost of dealing with the immigrants at the border on a annual basis….Internet says it roughly 4.4 billion per year….and then I goggled the number of immigrants apprehended this year and they reported almost 400,000….Question…Why not send the immigrants home with a percentage of that money going to their home country of origin. It figures to be around several million dollars per home country, depending upon the number of countries involved. Over a hundred million each, maybe or at least a goodly amount. Maybe that would make a difference  to the involved countries….well, at least for a couple of years….. Seems like someone in congress could figure something out, does it not….Do they ever think outside the box?….Oh wait, it’s congress…The better question would be, “Do they ever think?”

Illegals Sue America….

My gosh, I have heard it all now. The ACLU is about the worst organization in our country today. They fight all the wrong battles……Criminals suing us because we are deporting them. That’s what happens when you come into this country illegal.  You have been here too long now. Time to go…..

And another thing….America did not create the mess on the border…..nor did the Border Patrol…..nor did the citizens of the United States of America….It is totally in the hands of the immigrants trying to get into our country. Of course, we are getting the blame for it all. If we don’t wake up soon we will be over run by the migrants and our country, already broke will soon be broken and broke. It is going to happen sooner than later unless Trump can get it stopped.

Do you wonder why so many Americans are backing Trump…..Gosh, read the news. Liberal America has gone stark raving mad. We have to have Trump to survive.

USA Women’s Soccer Team….Another Win

The American ladies are looking good. I am proud of them and get mighty tired just watching a few minutes of all that running….How can they keep it up for 90 minutes? I guess that’s what they train for all year. What, one more game to go and they will be the champions? I’m not much of a soccer buff and know very little about it and it probably shows in trying to write about it. I know that when the ball goes in the basket it’s a goal….And those yellow cards and red cards, now that’s a good idea…The NFL should consider that, maybe a red card entitles the opposing team to a free field goal try…..hold on, I’m just kidding…..But the women must have watched the kneeling of the NFL and watched those refusing to go to the white house and to using the foul language in discussing the Office of the United States of America, well, at least one of them did. That’s a shame too, because I could have really got behind those girls and pulled for them. As it was, I was so turned off by reading the article of the one girls actions that it kept me for pulling for the team…That’s crazy….Crazy that Ms. Rapinoe would act in such a fashion and crazy that I would react to her in such a fashion. After all, there are several girls on the team and not being a fan anyway it just stopped me cold….When a NFL team member kneels during the national anthem anymore, I don’t watch that program…..If a person is an American, then act like an American…Stand for our anthem and respect the Office of The United States of America President. I hope the girls win, but what a “spoil sport” that one person has been….
