OBAMACARE NATIONAL HEALTH CARE; WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT!

July 17th, 2017

Here is the problem with America’s attempt to provide Americans with workable health care insurance, like all other Western civilization have succeeded in doing.

All health insurance is actually socialism, all beneficiaries pay premiums to cover the costs of those few who need the health care, and those who do not get sick are glad to pay the premiums and not be sick and need the health care; Insurance is something you pay for and hope you never need to use.

And, socialism is the only purpose for any government, the purpose is to provide for all the people collectively, those things that the people cannot provide for their self as individuals, like defense, the U.S. Army is a socialistic entity, and highways are a socialistic entity, and public school, police, and fire protection are socialistic like many other necessities of the People.

MEDICAL SURGERY 3 VERY BEST

Now most civilized nations have government provided health care which is another necessity of the People!

The problem arises because the private capitalistic health insurance company is a corporation that is purely “capitalistic” and more interested in “profits” than health care, therefore they don’t want to insure anyone who just might get sick; so they refuse to sell insurance to people who might get sick or have health problems, however, the private health insurers charge premiums based on a population that includes all people, including those who ‘might’ get sick.

Many Americans have wanted to have a national health insurance, just like we have public schools to provide education for all the People, to serve the entire population with health insurance, believing health is as important as education.

It would appear reasonable, the entire population profits from national insurance for all, and not having neighbors who might be ill and infect the entire neighborhood.

The main problem with any health insurance, government or private, is that some health workers like doctors and hospitals, is that some want to cheat the system and profit even more from their cheating.

For example, when Medicare was first enacted, a company moved into my town and advertised free examinations for women “who had health insurance”, including Medicare, whether there was a need for the exam or not!

In America, it is those who profit most from providing health care who oppose regulated universal government health care for all the People; and so the same health care, like a colostomy, costs more in America than in any other nation in the world.

Please note that President Obama won the 2008 election, BECAUSE HE PROMISED NATIONAL HEALTH CARE AND REFORM OF HEALTH CARE; President Obama won reelection in 2012 because for the first time, America provided Affordable National Health Care.

President Obama was elected twice because a majority of Americans want National Health Care for All Americans.

Republicans, who represent private-health care corporations, including doctors, have tried to repeal Obama care many times, and the current Republican President Trump was elected by the Electoral College, and by a MINORITY OF THE POPULAR VOTE OF U.S. VOTERS WHO WANT NATIONAL HEALTH CARE; “THERE IS SOMETHING ROTTEN IN AMERICA”!

AMERICA IS A PEOPLE; AMERICA IS NOT A PLACE, IT IS A SOCIETY! GOD BLESS AMERICANS!

July 16th, 2017

Today, I’m thinking, what can Americans do to make America better! This is what I came up with!

Because of modern technology, America’s Constitution needs to be brought up to date.

Unfortunately, our U.S. Constitution’s Amendments have not been used to update our Constitution because of new and modern 21st Century technology; the Constitution was written in 1787, for 13 independent colonies of different kinds of people and made as “democratic” as possible, based on the communication, technology, and travel of 1787.

One model our forefathers considered using, was the democratic confederation of Switzerland which was founded, 1 August 1291; the Swiss speak 4 different languages, but they all call their self, Swiss!

Today, Americans need a government of the “United People of America”, instead of the “United States of America”; America is more a common “People” than different “States People”. We call ourselves, “Americans”, we do not call ourselves “Illinoisers”, or “Louisianaers”, or “Californiaers”!

ETHNIC DIFFERENCE CROWD TINY PICTS SHAPED LIKE FLAD GOOD

America no longer needs an Electoral College to elect Presidents; our American People should NOT BE DIVIDED BY STATES AND HAVE PRESIDENTS WHO ARE ELECTED BY A MINORITY OF Americans.

And, America does not need 50 different kinds of elections for choosing a President, when one corrupted form of an individual States election (like Florida in 2000) can cause the President supported by the majority of Americans to lose the election. American Presidential Electoral College elections are a disgrace to our democracy. Our forefathers founded America on Democratic Principles, similar to Switzerland of 1291.

There are degrees of democracy; and America needs to be as democratic as possible, and today’s modern technology makes it possible for Americans to have “direct elections” and even to have a direct election on our most important issues; our representative government was created because of the technology, size, and communications, available in 1787, and now America needs a government for the 21st Century.

It is time for Americans to bind together to form one People, one nation, one society!

trump-protest

In reality we Americans are not, nor should we be, Republicans OR Democrats, liberals OR conservatives, majorities OR minorities spewing hatred for one another; I am old enough to remember when we were all Americans, we were all immigrants, and we loved our neighbors.

Please, whoever and whatever Americans read this, please forward it to your government representatives and tell them to make our people the UNITED PEOPLE OF AMERICA, and never become again a United States of America. “We the People want America to be a United People!”

GOVERNMENT, ANY GOVERNMENT IS SOCIALISTIC IN ITS PURPOSE; INCLUDING THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT! USE YOUR HEAD!

June 26th, 2017

The only purpose of any government: democracy, Nazi, monarchy, or Communist, is to “provide for the People collectively, those things that the People cannot provide for their self as individuals”. And that is also the definition of “socialism”. However you look at it, THE ONLY PURPOSE OF ANY GOVERNMENT IS TO PROVIDE FOR THE PEOPLE COLLECTIVELY, THOSE THINGS THAT THEY CANNOT PROVIDE FOR THEIR SELF AS INDIVIDUALS!

So Hitler, Lenin, and George Washington were all socialist; and, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Post Office are socialistic entities!

American highways, roads, Interstate, and the U.S. Post Office are socialistic institutions approved of and mentioned in the U.S. Constitution.

Corporate America has successfully convinced too many American People that their nation, of the People, by the People, for the People, AND WITH THE “COOPERATION” OF THE PEOPLE, IS WRONG, AND AMERICANS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE “COMPETING” WITH EACH OTHER IN “CAPITALISM” FOR OUR RIGHTS INSTEAD OF “COOPERATING” TO ASSURE OUR RIGHTS, IN OUR AMERICAN DEMOCRACY AS THE U.S. CONSTITUTION PROVIDES!

TRUMP TOWERS W TRUMP PIC IN FRONT

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”

AMERICA DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

American politicians and Corporate America today, would have you believe you have to “compete” politically for your Rights and vote for the “right political party” to secure your rights in the United States of America, and they are wrong; America is a democracy and our Constitution says we Americans “cooperate” in our democracy, with “equal rights”!

In America we cooperate in defense of our Rights using our “collective” U. S. Army and we care for our medical needs collectively with Obamacare.

Americans need to start cooperating and share a collective life with “democratic socialism”; it all started with the U.S. Army, the U.S. Postal Service, and George Washington!

AMERICA’S PLIGHT TODAY; THE PEOPLE’S LOSS OF FREEDOM AND THE UNITED STATES THREAT TO OUR ALLIES AND ALL THE OTHER NATIONS OF THE WORLD!

June 24th, 2017

Remember the Republican strategy when Republicans promised to make President Obama and America fail? Don’t ever forget. Mitch McConnell publically stated Republicans would work to make America fail in order to defeat President Obama. And, Republicans and McConnell failed to accept their Constitutional responsibility of the Senate and Congress.

MITCH MCCONNEL 7 W CONFEDERATE FLAG

A Prime example was McConnell failing the Senate’s responsibility to act on President Obama’s Constitutional obligation to appoint a Supreme Court Justice; and once the Republican Congress “shut down all Federal Government, refusing to accept their responsibility to provide funding for the entire Federal Government. At that time, the entire Republican Congressmen should have been impeached for failure to fulfill their Constitutional obligations.

The American people are threatened by their elected fascist government.

“Hoyer: Republicans would see country ‘fail’ to defeat Obama’s reelection bid”: http://thehill.com/homenews/house/182637-hoyer-gop-would-see-country-fail-to-defeat-obama

PAUL RYAN ARMS CROSSE FROWN

“Republicans would rather see the country collapse than President Obama succeed, the second-ranking House Democrat charged Tuesday. . . . The leader in the Senate said his principal objective is to defeat Barack Obama, and therefore — and this is important — what follows is that America needs to fail over the next 14 months,” Hoyer told reporters at the Capitol. Because if America succeeds, if jobs are created, if the economy starts growing, then some would believe that it would be to the political benefit of Barack Obama.”

With this, Russian influence in the 2016 election, and the Questionable Trump victory in the Electoral College while Trump lost the popular vote by three million votes, has made the American democratic Republic, a fascist nation. Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.” The shoe fits the Trump, McConnell, Ryan, and Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination; and it was made possible by the U.S. Supreme Court Republican majority “Citizens United Decision” in 2010, that allowed the wealthy and corporate America to buy political candidates and elections.

TRUMP-FISTS-SCREAMING-300x207

Americans, you no longer are a democratic Republic; America today is a fascist regime “that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic militaristic government.” The Republican Party Nation, and all the rest of the world knows it; America has lost its long standing allies in the world, and worldwide terrorism reigns, as the result of Republican wars, Desert Storm against Iraq 1995, Invasion of Afghanistan, in 2001, who had no part or responsibility for 9/11 and the Invasion of Iraq and assassination of Saddam in 2002.

These questionable wars, without Declarations of War, were all for the benefit of Corporate America and oil, and precipitated the ISIS Terrorist of today.

America today is a threat to all the world, including NATO! America stands alone as the primary threat to World Peace, led by a stupid, racist, and fascist Republican Party President, Congress, and Supreme Court. If America is to ever again be a democratic nation, it require another Revolutionary War, like 1776 for the same reason: ““We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”

NUDITY IN THE AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOLS AND THE THREAT OF NUDITY TO AMERICAN SOCIETY!

June 21st, 2017

Today I’m reading: “This high school girl wants you to know her shoulders shouldn’t be a distraction“: http://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/whats-hot/this-high-school-girl-wants-you-to-know-her-shoulders-shouldn%E2%80%99t-be-a-distraction/ar-BBCTGTx?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

Personally, I was a career public high school teacher, and think that I was realistic about students being an American adolescent; when I was seventeen, I decided not to get any older, and as a teacher I considered myself the equal of my adolescent students and my students an equal to me and worthy of my respect. So therefore, I demanded the same respect from my students that my students had for every other adolescent. It worked for me.

BARE FEET BARE SHOULDERS
NUDE SHOULDERS

When it came to dress codes, I’m convinced that the students were a better judge of student dress codes than adults and school administrators are; my students wore the same size of clothing that I as a teacher and adult wore, and in fact student wore all the same clothes that adults wear.

If other adults wore those clothes in society, why could students, not wear those clothes to school?

Oh, appropriate clothes!

BARE FEET 1
NUDE FEET

Yet as a Teacher, the School District (in my day) required that I wear a coat and tie to work and wear while teaching. (I was a teacher a long time ago; I had no choice. )

Basically, as a teacher I was required to wear formal wear, though I did not believe my job as “teacher” should require a formal atmosphere. I personally believed a formal atmosphere was not conducive to “learning”; so I had to convince my students to just ignore my formal wear, as an example that their teacher did not have “good taste” in clothing.

In regard to students wearing sexy clothes, let me assure “adults” that high school students have the same “feelings” about sex that any “adults” do, or most “adults’ do”.

As a teacher, I had a school administrator send one of my students home because she was wearing sandals, and the administrator said she could not wear sandals to school because bare feet were “sexy” and “distracted” boys (who were not considered men but had the sexual fantasies of men).

BARE FEET 5 IN SANDALS
NUDE FEET IN SANDALS

My girls were disturbed by the administrator’s behavior and brought the problem to me in my classroom.
So in the classroom, I told the students, “Yes, nude feet are sexy, and it says so in the Bible!”
The students did not believe me so I got the Gideon Bible we had in the class room (as historic literature), and read in “Songs of Solomon, “How beautiful are thy feet in sandals!”

BARE FEET 4 W LACE
NUDE FEET IN LACE

The students were shocked and we had a great history lesson discussion about nude feet that day; but it actually made me feel guilty, because I personally believe that nude feet are actually uglier than nude elbows.

As a normal “adult” human being, I personally believed that clothes designers designed clothes to be sexy, and women (especially), deliberately wore the sexiest clothes possible, to attract the opposite sex; and men wore sexy clothes (?) to attract women, and adolescent girls are actually “women”!

In the student’s biology class, the students hopefully learned about the human biological sex drive. Why should I be obliged in history class to teach students that the sex drive was abnormal and nude feet made people behave abnormally?

FELLOW AMERICANS, BE ADVISED THAT YOUR GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IS ACTUALLY A “SOCIALISTIC ENTITY” JUST LIKE ALL OTHER NATIONS’ GOVERNMENTS!

June 18th, 2017

The one most important aspects of any government, for a citizen to be aware and knowledgeable, is, “What is the purpose for their government?”

If citizens are to be a responsible and knowledgeable citizens, or voters, in the case of a democracy, it is of utmost importance for them to know the “purpose” of their government.

Whether their government is a fascist government, a Communist government, a Nazi, or theocratic government, or a Democratic Republic like the United States of America, the citizens need to know that “the only purpose for any government is exclusively to provide collectively for all citizens, those things that a citizen cannot provide for their self as individuals.”

The only purpose of a government, is easily recognized as, also the definition of socialism.

CONGRESS MEETING

And a government is basically the establishment of a society of people with similar needs for their government to provide for them.

Consequently, Americans have to admit that their U.S. Army and Navy is a socialistic institution; our public schools are socialistic, the streets and highways we drive on are socialistic, local police and fire departments are socialistic. America’s government is socialistic. How are Americans socialistic, “let me count the ways”?

WHITEHOUSE FROM STREET

Further, every single capitalist in America is totally dependent on America’s socialistic government and Constitution.

Capitalism in America is dependent on our Constitution’s Fifth Amendment, the protection of a capitalist’s property, their business, and their profits. Every dollar bill tht our American capitalists make, has written on it, “Federal Reserve Note, as in “federal government“.

Personally, I have studied government for my entire life, and as a “socialistic”, public school teacher, I taught political science in the “socialistic public schools” of America. As a teacher, I was required to teach all about our American democracy, and forbidden to indoctrinate students, except to teach the values of American democracy.

And, remember that there is only one purpose for any government, including the United States of America, and that is all about socialistic entities, beginning with an army, a navy, defense, and including the “governmental” approval of capitalistic business licenses, approving charters for capitalistic corporations, and making laws for the regulating of capitalistic entities in America. And, America is governed by the People.

Understand, that personally, I believe in capitalism as well as socialism; I believe that capitalism is required in any democracy, because only in a “capitalistic society” can a citizen profit from his own creativeness and ingenuity. That includes being able to compete fairly with others and to profit from sales of their products and services.

The American Constitution obviously approves of socialistic entities, and the Constitution also provides in the Fifth Amendment for capitalism; “No person shall be held for a capital or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentation or indictment of a Grand Jury . . . nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without compensation.”

SUPREME COURT OF US

Actually, I must admit that it grieves me to see the term “socialism” appear in the prime time news media, TV and newspapers, as a “dirty world”; because I consider socialism to be based primarily on “cooperation” of the People, which I consider to be a positive incentive.

And depending on circumstances, I find capitalism to be based purely on “competition”, which I consider in some circumstances, to be negative motivation for the People.

As a school teacher, I always disapproved of “grades” as an ”incentive” for learning, because it was always totally unfair competition, based on what God’s gift of relative intelligence was, reading skills, memory, eyesight, hearing, etc. I would never put a one legged child into a foot race; and that is how I perceived grades frequently worked.

All men are not created equally, in all respects, except in the U. S. Constitution.

Instead, I personally believed that the only incentive for students studying government and history, should be acquiring their understanding of government and history, necessary and essential for them to have a life of contentment; and the evaluation of their accomplishments should be that they either learned enough or they didn’t.

And our American democracy depends entirely on voters knowing the needs of their government, the needs of the People, and the many faults of fascism.

SHOOTING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND OTHER NEWS OF THE DAY! AND, WHO IS ON FIST BASE!

June 15th, 2017

Today I read, “Lawmaker Steve Scalise injured in a GOP baseball shooting; gunman James T. Hodgkinson dies in custody“: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/lawmaker-steve-scalise-injured-in-gop-baseball-shooting-suspect-james-t-hodgkinson-dies-after-shootout/ar-BBCFi8H?ocid=spartandhp

Personally, I found it despicable to hear of a member of the U.S. Congressman being shot. What has happened to my United States of America?

Then, as I read the story, I discovered that the Congressman who was shot, was Republican Majority Whip, Rep. Steve Scalise, and third highest ranking Republican in Congress.

And I remembered that Republican Whip Scalise had caused quite a flap when appointed Whip, because he was a racist Congressman from Louisiana, who had received support in his election from David Duke, former KKK Grand Master and a notable racist activist which Scalise had tried to hide.

SCALISE TY NEWS SCANDAL

Then, in the 2016 election, David Duke considered running against Scalise: “Before the Republican National Convention, former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke was thinking about running for Congress against House Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana (who in turn once sold himself to voters as “David Duke without the baggage”): Brian Butler in the “New Republic”; https://newrepublic.com/minutes/135432/donald-trump-made-people-like-david-duke-feel-theyre-no-longer-fringes

SCALISE REPUBLICAN WHIP GUEST A WHITE SEPRMACIST CONVENTION

Scalise had earlier in his career been a paid speaker at a meeting of a KKK affiliate of Duke’s and his campaign had received other financial support from David Duke.

When appointed Republican Whip, there was considerable opposition from some Republicans, to Scalise being appointed Whip, because of his racist past.

SCALISE WITH CONF FLAG AND DUKE

So I immediately wondered about the shooter’s purpose in shooting Scalise based on Scalise’s racist past.

The shooter, James Hodgkinson had died of gunshot. Rep. Scalise had surgery and survived his gunshot, however he remains in great danger.

As I read the entire article, I wondered about the ethnicity of Hodgkinson and his purpose in shooting of Scalise; it was never mentioned in the article.

So, I was amazed by how much was actually written about the connection of the shooter to the Bernie Sanders campaign and nothing about the racial issue. And, Sanders was interviewed extensively about Hodgkinson’s activism in Sanders ongoing campaign!

BERNIE SANDERS 2

However, there was nothing mentioned in the article about the Republican Majority Whip’s racism; it occurred to me that racism was never even mentioned, despite the noted racism of Scalise and the article never mentioned the race of shooter. I imagine if the shooter had been other than White, or a Muslim, it would have indeed been a larger part of the article, instead of the association of the shooter being with the Bernie Sanders campaign, which was discussed exclusively.

And of course, I am very concerned about the bias of prime time news media. 90% of all American prime time news media, is owned by 6 corporate conglomerates. American news media, is seemingly, less news, than it is Corporate America, Republican propaganda.

WHAT HATH THE 2016 AMERICAN ELECTION WROUGHT? IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR WORKING AMERICANS IN THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY?

June 13th, 2017

The American election of 2016, we now know, was a disaster!

Liberal progressive working middle class and poor are a majority in America, and the Democratic Party since President Franklin Roosevelt has normally represented working Americans; the Republican Party has in more recent history represented Corporate America’s WALL STREET!

LABOR UNIONS  IF UNIONS ARE NEEDED WHYY CORP SPEND BILLIONS TO DESTROY

However, in the 2016 election, neither party appeared to represent the needs of labor; the DC Establishment of the Democratic Party in the 2016 Election, with ” CENTRIST, WALL STREET FINANCED HILLARY CLINTON” AS CANDIDATE, won the endorsement and vote of Republican President Papa Bush IN 2016, but lost the 2016 vote of liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor, Democratic Party voters.

The American majority, the working Middle Class and Poor need to dump the Wall Street supported Democratic Party of “centrist”, Wall Street financed Hillary Clinton, who ignored the workers party platform, and Americans today need to form an American workers party; we need a candidate that we, working Americans can support and vote for.

The 2016 Elections was a disaster for Democrats, suffered by self-inflicted wounds!

THEREFORE, WORKING AMERICAN DEMOCRATS NEED CANDIDATES FOR CONGRESS IN 2018, WHO ARE FOR LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR VOTERS, AND NOT WALL STREET MONEY.

WORKERS NEED TO REMEMBER THAT UINIFIED MANPOWER CAN BEAT BIG MONEY; MONEY NEVER PRODUCED ANTHING IN TERMS OF GOODS OR SERVICES, ONLY WORKERS PRODUCE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES (AND EXCELLENT CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE WHO SERVE THE PEOPLE).

HAIL A NEW LABOR PARTY FOR AMERICAN WORKERS! PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS GOT TO GO!

“Solidarity Forever”, is a labor anthem, written by Ralph Chaplin in 1915, when labor unions were not about elections, instead, unions were about working men and women who risked their lives, their livelihood, and their very existence for decent wages, working conditions, and hours! It was a time that created and solidified America’s Middle Class that was about workers.

LABOR 1920S WALL STREET RIOT GOOD

And in today’s world, Labor Unions are the ONLY VOICE TODAY, FOR WORKING MEN AND WOMEN, and today’s Republican politicians seek to ELIMINATE LABOR UNIONS, FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.

Today’s workers could learn something by knowing the words to Chaplin’s anthem, “Solidarity Forever”!

HERE ARE THOSE LYRICS TO “SOLIDARITY FOREVER”!

When the union’s inspiration through the workers’ blood shall run,
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun;
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one,
But the union makes us strong.

Chorus:
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
For the union makes us strong.

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite,
Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
For the union makes us strong.

Chorus

It is we who plowed the prairies; built the cities where they trade;
Dug the mines and built the workshops, endless miles of railroad laid;
Now we stand outcast and starving midst the wonders we have made;
But the union makes us strong.

Chorus

All the world that’s owned by idle drones is ours and ours alone.
We have laid the wide foundations; built it skyward stone by stone.
It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own.
While the union makes us strong.

Chorus

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
That the union makes us strong.

Chorus

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold,
Greater than the might of armies, multiplied a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old
For the union makes us strong.

And sadly, I can hear my friends and most young people, who have actually profited from the sacrifices, and even deaths of our labor union brothers and sisters, laughing at the words to “Solidarity Forever”, and/or even the words of the title itself, thinking that no one today could consider the “words” seriously. Yet, these same people often complain to me about their jobs and working condition, and they just don’t know what in the name of God to do about it!

LABOR 1920S GOOD PIC STRIKING WORKERS

Ah yes, I can assure you that for workers of the time “Solidarity Forever”, was written, and workers who lived in the same era of myself, my father, and my grandfather have taken the words seriously, knowing that working brothers and sisters of our unions, have fought and died for our welfare, AND STILL DO TODAY!

GOD BLESS AMERICA . . . AND OUR LABOR UNIONS!

AMERICAN WOMEN’S BREASTS, EVERYWHERE, AND NOT A SINGLE “NIPPLE” IN SIGHT!

June 11th, 2017

Today, I was reading, “Women Can Now Go Topless At Maryland Beach … Maybe“: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ocean-city-topless_us_593b6519e4b0b13f2c6ac170

Personally, I’m a man. And, personally, I definitely, truly believe in “NIPPLE EQUALITY”; and not because nipples are very sexually exciting to me, because as a male and having had sex with the “OPPOSITE SEX”, I HAVE NEVER HAD NIPPLE-SEX with a woman!

I HAVE NEVER HONESTLY EVEN PERCEIVED, SATISFYING MY SEX DRIVE WITH A WOMAN’S, OR MY OWN, NIPPLES!

To me, I am actually emotionally gratified to watch a woman breast feed a child; as a male, it has never caused me to have an erection to see a baby eat a meal, and I have seen a few!

What I have experienced in life, is the Americans blotting out of female nipples in all photos of females, which caused me to wonder what the hell a female nipple looks like that is different from my own; and I am aware that there is little difference except for the size of the breast that the nipple adorns (most of the time).

BREAST BLURRED OUT PICASSSO
PICASSO W/FEMALE BREASTS BLURRED ON FOX NEWS

As for me, I have been married three times and still love all ex-wives, although my love is not totally reciprocated; but I say this ONLY because I intend to quote only one of those wives here, on the subject of male and female nudity, and God bless her and her thought.

BREAST NOT BLURRED OUT PICASSO CHRISTIES
PICASSO WITHOUT FEMALE BREASTS BLURRED

And, I have always treasured my one wife’s questioning of the answer to the question of why pictures of nude women were prohibitive; because she said, “Unlike men, women have NOTHING TO SHOW”, so why is female nudity prohibited!

God bless my wife, I have always and still love her, even though she has “NOTHING TO SHOW” when seen nude!

WHAT I DID ON MY SPRING VACATION, OR STORY OF A GRAND CHOO-CHOO RIDE TO THE GRAND CANYON!

June 10th, 2017

Ever since I can remember, I have loved trains.

My father worked for the Wabash Railroad for forty-two years, where he helped build steam engine train locomotives; the Wabash Railroad built their own steam locomotives.

We were quite poor when I was young and I remember when we were in the Great Depression and the one luxury we had was free railroad passes for the entire family because dad worked for the railroad. I loved trains and train travel. I particularly liked steam engines, which was all I knew until after WWII, when steam engines were replaced by diesel locomotives, which were not nearly as exciting or glamorous as steam locomotives.

Marlisa had always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon, and so we found a brochure on Travel Tours, and were enticed by one promising to “Take the Train to the Grand Canyon”, which was perfect for us both.

GRAND CANYON FOR BLOG

Personally, I had already been to the Grand Canyon before, and was impressed; as someone once said, “It is a great place to dispose of old razor blades”!

First of all, I want to say Marlisa and I both had a wonderful time; so all of my own complaints are just a bit of my typical “curmudgeon talk” about inconsiderate, irresponsible, inefficient people, businesses, and Acts of Congress. Don’t get me wrong, I actually enjoy life every day, and especially enjoy complaining good naturedly; I actually think sources of objectionable behavior is more comical than terrible. As Shakespeare once said, “What fools these mortals be!”

For example, I think it is ridiculous that a nation like the United States of America, that is supposedly the wealthiest nation in the world and the most technologically advanced, has such totally inadequate public transportation system that Marlisa and I had to drive four hundred miles, just to ride a train for a two hour trip to the Grand Canyon!

Meanwhile, back back home in San Diego, the people are wasting hours and hours of their life sitting alone and parked in their exceedingly fast automobiles on the freeway, continuously burning gasoline, just trying to get home from work. And, our driving our car 400 miles to get on our train, which was according to the travel agent, the most feasible way to get to our train.

TRAFFIC JAM 3

I’m reminded that once when I was in London, I walked two blocks from my hotel to a “Bullet Train”, I boarded that “Bullet Train” and in less than three hours, sitting comfortably in an overstuffed chair with a table, and stewards continually asking if I wanted anything to eat or drink, I was getting off the train in Paris, France.

Personally, I am old enough to remember when the Auto, Steel, Rubber, and Oil Industries convinced the American People that God intended them to use a fossil fuel powered automobile to drive their ass to work and back, alone, and parked for hours of their life on the freeway; and at the same time, they convinced Americans to dispose of trains, street cars, and dispose of the rails.

And I’m old enough to remember before the American epidemic of obesity!

I remember as a child in 1935, seeing my 70 year old grandfather walking home from work at the Wabash Railroad Car Shops where he was a blacksmith’s helper, and he lived a couple of miles from his work place. Grandpa lived to be 87 years old and he never owned a horse, a car, or a bicycle, nor wasted his money taking a bus home from work.

And so it was that Marlisa and I boarded our choo-choo train in Williams Arizona and departed the train at the Grand Canyon Rim. There were a number of old locomotives and passenger cars at the Williams Arizona Station on display , as well as entertainment and a restaurant.

During our trip to the Grand Canyon, we were entertained by cowboys singing or chasing robbers, and being served food and drink.

And, I watched a elderly grandfather with his two feisty grandchildren, sitting in front of us, and one of the grandkids said to his grandfather, “How about a little ice cream?”

His grandfather answered, “How about a little Dramamine?”

I love the drama of the people on public transportation!

And thus it was that I enjoyed the old train, and Marlisa thoroughly the Grand Canyon hole in the ground.

It is interesting that the Grand Canyon is a hole in the ground and the rim of the canyon is at a very high Altitude; which is particularly great for Marlisa because Marlisa is Swiss and worships mountains and hiking up and down mountains. And, I graciously let her hike up and down and around the canyon while I waited for her at the bar; Marlisa is fearless, of course, and I’m proud of her.

As for me, I couldn’t understand why I felt uncomfortable and light headed, and finally decided that I was suffering Altitude Sickness that I had never before encountered, and at the same time I suffered from acrophobia; however, I was very satisfied, getting no closer than 10 feet from the edge of the canyon. Personally, I prefer looking up rather than down, you never know when that canyon wall might collapse.

And a fine time was had for all.
