Something new

Some of you may know that I have been looking for a way out of Google. As a start, I have almost totally stopped using their Gmail client. 

But my biggest issue is getting away from Google Blogger. That is where this blog is hosted. And I have to finally admit that my content does not actually belong to me because Google can cancel me at anytime for any reason or no reason. I would lose all my writing over the last ten years. (Some might not consider that a loss.)

So I am settling on Substack as the best place to publish going forward. I'm just setting it up so it's not ready for primetime yet.

Anyone who would like to be a Guinea pig to help me out a bit please leave a comment below or send me a message and I will put your name on a temporary list to get just a few emails with test posts and the like. You can give me feedback on the site or format if you want. You can also familiarize yourself with Substack. I think this concept is on the cutting edge of the future of publishing in this new world.

Thanks to those who bear with me while I make the transition.

They fell for the trap! 

In order to convince the population that the country is in great danger of being taken over by violent right wing extremists the government built a wall to keep the domestic terrorists out of the protected zone around the government buildings. 

Those on the right have complained about the razor wire and army presence. That's because they are just a bunch of outsiders with no real knowledge of the plan. They just don't get it.

They didn't realize the fundamental fact that walls work both ways. They keep people out and they keep people in. The Great Wall of China was built to keep invaders out. The wall in East Germany was built to keep people in. Prisons keep people in too.

In one of the greatest roundups of all times we have been able to trick huge numbers of criminals into voluntarily reporting to prison. Now all we have to do is lock the gates behind them and end one of the biggest criminal conspiracies of all time. 

435 Representatives, 50 Senators, and uncountable numbers of co-conspirators in the executive branch all captured at the same time. The masterminds have been brought to justice. 

Quick! Lock the gates! Make America great again! 


Women's Sports in the New World

America has changed.

A new executive order from the people who handle Joe Biden asserts that people who compete in girls' sports can be of any biological gender. 

It's not a suggestion. As the name clearly indicates, it's an order. By the executive.

If biological males say they "identify" as a female they will be allowed to compete with females in sporting events and contests.

I don't need to go into why this is a huge problem for our girls. Whoever doesn't think it's a problem has already stopped reading. If they ever started.

I have some suggestions for any girl, and her parents, if they are ever forced to compete in women's sports against biological males.

Please don't refuse to join the team. That is surrender. Only refuse to participate in the contests. Do it at the starting line or as the contests are just beginning. Just sit down or stand still on the field of play. Ask the other girls to join you in the protest. Imagine what it would look like if the only people running the race after the gun sounds are the "I identify" females. Let them have their "prize."

You can organize your fellow competitors to have a contest later, privately, without "official" approval. Away from schools. Away from politicians. Parents should support them and help them organize away from "authorities." Kids sports need not be tied to schools or other official organizations. 

Every girl who does this might be kicked off the team. It's courage to stand up for yourself when you know you might be canceled. My opinion is formed as a parent and as a grandparent. I love brave girls. I have a whole family full of them.

You have a right to fight back for yourself or your daughter. You have a right to refuse to cooperate with this insanity. You have a right to peaceably resist. You need not cooperate. It's a fundamental human right.

This article is not a debate over sexuality.

That's my opinion. Others may differ.
