You can't change the truth

 Recently, I settled in and turned on my television to watch my favorite game show, Jeopardy!  To my  horror, I saw something that no doubt was considered groundbreaking for the game show: they welcomed a tranny as a contestant! Sure, she wasn't the first tranny, but the fact that they'd allow this nonsense twice is appalling.

Yup, a tranny!  Some would say they are "transgender," but I say that they're either a transgender or a transvestite, or for short, a tranny.  Not a good thing to see happen.  It's their right to allow such an atrocity to appear in their show, but it's my right to say it's disgusting!  Anything for ratings, I presume.

Would you want to survive?

 There are a lot of scary things going on these days when it comes to the possibility of an all-out nuclear confrontation between the USA and Russia, China, North Korea or whomever else.  Or, hell, they could all hit us at once!

There is a lot of talk about fallout shelters (some pay handsomely) and food storage and so forth.  On the surface, that is prudent thinking and wise planning.  

But I would like to pose a question: whether you resurface after the two-week minimum, a month, six months a year or more, is what you'll be confronted with something that you would want to deal with, or would you go to what would be the best ground zero and be vaporized?

They have only themselves to blame!

There so many news stories these days that present NYPD and NYFP first responders as victims, because they're out of a job.  This because they refuse to do the decent and honorable thing: take the COVID vaccine.  

It just boggles the mind that some people are so psychotic that they not only refuse to get the shot, but that are putting their families' financial well-being at stake.  

Pretty soon, they'll run out of funds.  And then they'll have to justify willingly take food of their wives' and children's tables and sooner or later the landlord or mortage lender will call and when they find out that the reason that these miscreants are out of work of their own free will.

Justice MUST be done!

I normally don't write blog posts that could benefit a convicted murderer as pertains to protests, help get his or her sob story out there, and so forth.  But Julius Jones, set to die by lethal injection later in November, has plenty of that going on.

In 1999, Jones was convicted of murdering a businessman who had a family. Jones' fate was sealed as the result of a jury of his peers finding him guilty.  Jones took a page out of O.J. Simpson's book and swore the real killer is still out there.  Every morning when he looks in the mirror, Jones sees that killer.

I somehow made it

Back in 2013, I came thisclose to dying.  In fact, the day that I was put into an ambulance, I was hours from death.  If I'd done what I planned to do, which is work through the intense pain, I wouldn't be here typing this post and sipping hot chocolate.

Back in April of that year, my appendix burst.  When it did burst, the plain was so intense that it brought me to the ground.  I asked my wife to please, please shoot me.  This was impossible as we didn't then, nor do we now, now own guns.

Karma is a bitch!

 In a prior life, I had a career in broadcast engineering, namely master control.  As a master control operator, I was responsible for taking satellite feeds of syndicated programming for later broadcast, making sure programming and commerials air when they're supposed to, making sure Emergency Alert System and FCC compliance.  

Enter Sinclair Broadcast Group, a company that owns 184 stations.  Full discloure: I was a master control operator at one of their many stations.  I hated it.  Outdated equipment. The company is awful and they don't know what they're doing.

If you have nothing to hide....

Some people are in an uproar, an absolute uproar over the IRS' plan to compel banks to provide to the agency the banking information of anyone who had over $600 in a given year, which means just about any account holder.  

And this would be a requirement at all banks and credit unions, and with ghetto providers such as the Cash app, so it does no good for someone to close their accounts at one bank and then go across the street.  People are so angry, but the simple thing is this: if they have nothing to hide, then they have nothing to fear.
