Before there was a Fox network, there was only 4 TV stations on the air: ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS. It was mainly black and white TV unless you were one of the lucky ones to be able to afford a color TV.

When it came to the remote, you were the remote. You have to get up and off your lazy ass if you want to change the channel or sit there and watch what was on that channel. Sometimes, you even have to use a tweezer to change the channel because the channel knob was broken.

If you were lucky, you had an outside antenna on the roof of your house. Otherwise, you had rabbit ears on the top of your TV. Sometimes you had to stand and hold the rabbit ears to adjust the TV. Some rabbit ears even had tin foils on them to help with the picture.

Like I mentioned earlier, it was 12 inches black and white TV. You really didn’t get a clear picture, because it came in fuzzy.

Those who lived in the country didn’t have cable when they came out in the 80’s. Cable TV, when they first came out was a luxury compare to now, it’s a necessity for your TV.

Fox network came out Oct. 9,1986.

When Fox first started, there wasn’t many shows on their network. One of the first show on Fox was Marriage with Children; which aired on Sunday night. It starred Ed O’Neil, Katy Sagal and Christina Applegate. It depicted family life as being true family life before Roseanne ever did.

Before Marriage with Children, family life was practically fake or what people wish their family was more like. For example: the Brady Bunch.

They even had 2 reality show on and they were Cops and America’s Most Wanted. They were shown on Saturday Night.

Not only did Marriage with Children appeared so did the Simpsons, the longest running animation.

This is just a little background as Fox News recently celebrated 25 years being on the air.

Before Fox news, the only news a person got was pretty much on your local station. Back then those who brought you the news had integrity. It was real news. They did their job in reporting the news and kept their opinion to themselves, like they are supposed to. When you watch the CBS news with Walter Cronkite, you could respect him because he had integrity; something they lack now days.

When Walter Cronkite retired, Dan Rather took over, and CBS news went down the toilet because Dan Rather had no integrity like Walter Cronkite had.

In the late 1800’s there was “Yellow Journalism”, and that was nothing to what we got not with the mainstream news media; or as they are known as “Fake News.”

They don’t fully report the news, they make the news. When I studied journalism, I was taught there are 5 w’s and how a good reporter must ask when they investigate into a news story. They are to remain bias when reporting the news, but they don’t do that. If they don’t agree or like part of the story, they will leave it out just to suit their needs.

As Paul Harvey would say, “and now the rest of the story.” What you don’t get from the fake mainstream news, you’ll get from Fox News. I find that you get the whole story from Fox. I’ll watch ABC news but to get the rest of the story, when I will turn to Fox to get the rest of the story.

I’m not saying Fox news is perfect. There are some at Fox news that should go. I’m glad that Megan Kelley is gone, because she was only out to make a name for herself at the expense of others. Chris Wallace is just like his father, Mike Wallace from 60 Minutes. They both are very bias; even though Mike had more integrity than Chris.

At the same time, if you watch too much news, it can be very depressing. It can make you do what Elvis did and shoot at the TV.

There are those who seems to watch news 24/7. Even worse, they are watching the fake mainstream news. They are not getting the whole story, the whole truth. They are only being fed what those news reporters want to feed you.

I can only watch so much news before I have to turn it off. Otherwise, I will go crazy. When I watch the news I want the whole story, the whole truth.

To those who watch the news or even get the news from Facebook 24/7, you need to get a life. Don’t spend your days and night watching the news or getting it on Facebook. If you are about ready to lose your mind because of the news, turn it off and turn off Facebook as well; and find something else to do with your life.

Happy Anniversary to Fox network and Fox news!! Thank you Fox news for bringing us more of the truth we need to hear. Don’t just get part of the story, get the rest of the story.

For those of us whose parents grew up during the time of the Great Depression, we were taught how to survive a long hard cold winter. Being raised on a farm, growing your own food and raising your own chickens and cattle, has an advantage over others. They are taught how to canned and freeze in the Fall to stock up for the winter to be prepared for it.

With the high inflation and high cost of food because of the inflation, it’s good to know that a little common sense can help a person make it through the hard long cold winter.

When you hear stories of your parents talking about those days, we just shrugged it off. For example: my step-dad would say, “I walked 5 miles through the deep snow to school and back, while the cold hard wind blew through me.”

We knew that he was exaggerating just a little because his old school wasn’t that far from the farm. You just didn’t dare to say anything or get hit by the back of his hand.

We were taught how to canned fruits and vegetables we grew in our garden; and even froze for the winter. We even had a woodstove. My step-dad would chopped plenty of woods and brought it up close to the house stack in a woodpile. That way, all we had to do was go out to the woodpile and bring some woods in and down the basement. We even brought woods to the basement window as dad would stack a pile inside the basement of the house.

He always said that we must be prepared for the winter. If you are prepared, you won’t starve or freeze.

It seems that those who grew up during the Great Depression knew how to prepare for a crisis. Some may thinks, they are hoarders. They may be to a point on some thing. I mean, my mother would buy something on sale and forget about it, and then buy it again.

I’m glad that I was taught how to canned and freeze our food for the winter; because it came in handy a few years ago when I made homemade bread and butter pickles. It turned out good and I was complimented on it.

When we were taught all this by our parents growing up, we think, “are we really going to need to know all this?”

They may had went through hard times; but we have had it so easy. Everything is so convenience for us now days. We have never had it as bad as they did. We have it easy compared to them.

It’s not about being a Conservative or a Liberal. It’s all about having a little common sense on how to be prepared. You never know what may be thrown at us. We may laugh or shrugged it off what our parents was teaching us in being prepared.

Everything is going up because of the high inflation created by Biden and those in Washington and their wasteful spending. So stock up; even when some may call you a hoarder.

When I die, I want to come back as a country boy because they know how to survive when those are struggling to keep warm and well fed. They know how to hunt, fish, grow a garden, and raised their own food. We know how to work hard and have callous on our hands for what we have. If we have to, we cannot buy things we don’t really need; which is very tempting to do.

My step-dad may had been cheap but he was wise because he grew up during the Great Depression.

We may had laughed at our parents back then but we are grateful for their advice now.

From this Rednecker, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m just a bigger rednecker than you. I don’t care if you call me a redneck. I’m Proud to be one.

Is stress getting you down? Are you feeling overwhelm?

Stress is the #1 cause of a heart attack or stroke. Stress is deadly to a person more ways than one. Stress doesn’t just affect your physical health. It also effect you mentally and emotionally. Stress can cause a person to take up drinking just to cope. Stress can also be responsible for domestic abuse in a family. It can cause a person to either beat their spouse or children. Stress can also cause a person to emotionally abuse them as well. Sometimes stress can also lead a person to sexual abuse as well, if you don’t get help.

Are you overwork because of being short staff?

I have a shirt that reads, “Overwork and under pay!”

You know you’re under stress when you rear-end the car in front of you on the way to work, make it to work 3 hours late and get fired. Then have your wallet or phone stolen on the bus ride home.

Stress can be dramatic to your health if it’s prolong. Stress can also be hidden and deeply imbedded in your life.

What does stress means to you?

According to the American Institute of Stress in Yonkers, New York; 43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects due to stress.

Pushing yourself to work too hard, staying up too late, eating too much or too little, or even worrying constantly is not only stressful on your mind but also your body.

Are you a worrywart? Do you constantly worry about things that you have no control over? In the words of Bob Newhart, “Stop It!!”

That is stinking thinking!

Stress comes in many forms and at any times.

When you are stressful, you will either consume alcohol to the extreme, overeat or undereat, overwork yourself, do drugs, gamble etc.

Migraines comes about because of stress. Believe me, I’ve had my shares of migraines too. They are not fun either. When you have a migraine, you just want to stay in bed. Lights bother you. You are nausea and have to constantly throw up even dry heave; because you don’t feel like eating. I’ve had migraines ever since I was a young boy. I have to admit though, for the last 3 years I have not had a migraine so far, thank goodness.

If you allow stress to continue for too long, you could suffer burnout, losing interest in your job or whatever. You have no motivation.

Stress can cause a person to have a nervous breakdown and do something you wouldn’t imagine ever doing.

Have you ever had stress dreams? I ‘ve had. Stress dreams come about when you have weird dreams about your job.

One time while working at Quality Bakery and the Fargo Country Club, I dreamt that I was running those big tall racks from Quality Bakery through the small dishwasher at the Fargo Country Club.

One thing I learned, before going to bed, take the time to relax and drain your thoughts of the day first; otherwise you will have stress dreams.

To help relieve the stress, go for a walk to relax. If the neighborhood is unsafe or the weather is rotten, go to the gym or the mall.

Working at the Fargo Dome is my sanctuary. If I’m having a stressful day from my regular job, working at the Fargo Dome helps relieve the stress I’m facing. At first, it was for the extra money; but it soon became my sanctuary.

Some people or jobs can be carriers of the stress. I found that working in a restaurant or retails can be very stressful on a person. If you are overwork on your job because of them being understaff, you can get stress out very easily. Your place of employment can bring about unnecessary stress into your life.

Some employers will offer help with phone number or hotline for you to call for help. Yet, at times, it can be a little too late, when they are bringing the stress onto your life.

If you are feeling stress, seek help from someone, a counselor, a pastor, or a friend. Don’t go to the bottle; because that’s only temporary. You can meditate, pray, take a walk, a shower, etc. The most important thing to do is that you get the help you need. It will keep you from becoming an alcoholic or abusing your spouse or children.

There are phone numbers you can call for help to deal with stress. You can call 2-1-1. You can call 1-800-273-TALK. You can text HELLO to 741741. Or you can even call 9-1-1.

Just get help to manage your stress before it either kill or harm you.

I don’t know how many remembered the great old Western movie, “Shane?” The lead character in the movie said, “Guns don’t kill-people kills.” Now that was a very good movie, not just a Western; back when they made good movies in Hollywood. I just hope that Hollywood doesn’t get a stupid idea to remake that movie. They will only destroy it like they destroy all the other good movies when they remake them.

I’ve been wanting to do a blog on gun control ever since I started creating my blogs. I was just waiting for the right opportunity and time to do it.

To let you know, right off, I’m against guns control; thus the title.

As you know most recently, there was an incident in Hollywood involving a movie that Alec Baldwin was involved in. I feel sorry for Halyna Hutchins and her family she left behind a husband and a young son. She was killed by a prop gun shot by Alec Baldwin. He was told the gun was safe and a cold gun.

I have to admit, it’s karma for Alec Baldwin. He’s getting his karma for all that he deserved. It’s too many things to name of all the bad things about Alec Baldwin; and this blog isn’t about him. Besides, you can find out everything you need to know about how Liberal Alec Baldwin is. I will say this, how he yelled and called his daughter with Kim Bassinger derogatory names on the phone. That was inappropriate! So Alec is actually getting his just dessert; so I don’t feel a bit sorry for him.

In the Bill of Rights, we have the right to bear arms, the right to protect ourselves. Yet there are people on the Left who wants to take away that rights. They want to take away our freedom more and more. They’re not the only ones though; so does the Rhino’s Republican.

Doesn’t they realize that it isn’t guns that kills; it’s people?

If a person really want to kill someone, There are ways to do it. You can kill a person with your bare hands, a knife, a car, poisons, etc.

Look at what happened during the Roaring 1920’s when there was Prohibition of alcohol. We have bootlegging and mafia selling alcohol illegally. People like Al Capone and Babyface Nelson.

Don’t they realize that if they create guns control, they will have the same situation all over again?

All last year, the Democrats were saying that we must defund the police. Well, if they defund the police and take away guns from the good honest American citizen; how can we protect ourselves? With no police and no guns!!

I’m not a hunter and I don’t own a gun; but I’m against guns control.

There are people who likes to hunt for the sports and some even eat what they killed. Do you really want to take away that thrill from them? It’s our God-given rights to bear arms!

If you take away the guns from good American citizen, only the criminals will have guns. Then they can do whatever they want and face no consequences for their actions. There will be no accountability. If they also defund the police, it will be even worse. It will be like the Wild Wild West of the 1800’s. It will be a free-for-all. There will be a lot more innocent victims being shot and killed by criminals that shouldn’t be having guns or even out of jail.

Guns will be smuggled into this country much like illegal drugs are. And with our open borders, no thanks to Biden, it will be very easy to do so.

Take a look at these major cities, such as Chicago, New York, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon. Violence is up and so is shooting deaths of young victims. It’s not the cops or the good citizen; but the actual criminals responsible for all the shootings there. Yet, the Democrats who are in control in those cities just don’t care. They are not doing a damn thing about it. They just want to take away guns from the good citizens and put them in the hands of criminals.

I do admit that there are people who shouldn’t have guns. Not because they are criminals; but because of their mental illness. Why should everyone be punish because of them?

If you asked me, I think the reasons some of those in Washington are pushing for gun control; is because they are afraid there will be an uprising much like the Capital riot in January. The American people will get so upset not only with Biden but them as well. There will be a Civil War; much worse than we had in 1860’s The good honest American citizens will storm the Capital to take back America by force if necessary. And those in Washington may lose their lives because of it.

It will be much like what goes on in these Third World Countries, when the people finally had enough and stormed their Capitals to overthrow their government. It could happens here, if they are not careful in Washington. It won’t be Trump’s fault either! It will be all theirs.

As Dirty Harry would say, “Go ahead and make my day!”

To those who in Washington who wants to take away our guns, Take away our guns over our dead bodies!

So don’t give us reason; you’ll might regret it!

It’s that time of year again. A time for all the little ghosts and goblins to be out. It’s also a time for witches and vampires as well. I’m talking about the scariest night of all, Halloween.

Halloween isn’t what it used to be though. Matter of fact, it’s not safe to be out after dark anymore.

It’s used to be fun and relaxing after a long hard day at work to go walking out in the dark. It even used to be romantic to go walking in the dark with your sweetheart.

No wonder midnight is called the witching hour!

You don’t want to be walking after midnight anymore, because it’s not safe.

When they talked about shadows in the moonlight, there might be shadows you prefer not even see while out walking.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or because the people is just getting crazier and scarier. I mean, Fargo used to be a safe small city to live in. I didn’t mine walking after dark just to relax after a hard day of work.

Now when you ride the city bus, the bus driver is in a little cage for their protection. Not just from the virus but also for other safety precaution. They even have cameras on the bus for safety reasons. They also have cameras in the taxi cabs as well. Some areas are worse than others too.

If you go to Minneapolis, there is an area that the busses will stop running around 2 am because of safety reasons; and they run 24/7, except for that exception.

I remembered years ago, living up north Fargo, near Broadway. I thought nothing of it to go walking in the dark. I even cut through the alley, without a fear. Then one night, I spied a homeless person digging in the dumpster. I was a little scared, and I didn’t cut through the alley after dark anymore.

I took a train twice and it was fun. The bad things about taking a train is, the train leaves during the night and the neighborhood where the train depot isn’t very safe. You’re not sure who you may run into.

Much like going out to certain bars in the night, it’s not safe anymore.

Some say that growth progress; and that may be so. Along with growth, comes crimes and less security as well.

I hated Chicago because to me, it wasn’t very safe. I remembered going passed Chicago on the way to Indianapolis. I made sure that the doors were locked in case we were stopped in traffic. I didn’t want anyone to break into the car with me in the backseat.

This past summer, when I was at Lake Geneva in Alexandria, Minnesota, it was beautiful there; even in the dark. Before going to bed, I sat outside behind my cabin by the light of the fire just a swinging and visiting with others there. It was tranquil. I felt very much safe and relaxing. You can’t feel that much in Fargo anymore. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

Crimes is getting so bad in these cities, a person just doesn’t feel safe anymore; especially after dark. I mean, it had been a few years since I have been out West, near Seattle, Washington. I have cousins out there in Washington; but because of the riots that had taken place this past year, I’m in no real hurry to get out there. Call me a chicken, if you want, I don’t care!

I do remembered the last last time I was out there, I was with my cousins in Sumner, Washington. It was a suburb of Seattle. We were sitting out on his front porch and I didn’t have a fear in the world. Matter of fact, my cousins hate going into Seattle if they don’t have to.

I mean, some people may love New York City. To me, you can keep New York City; not because it’s Liberal State either. New York City is worse than Chicago. I’m not much for big cities. I prefer small town or living out in the country. There you can go out walking without fearing for your life or if you are going to get mug, murdered, or even rape. It’s the simple life I miss the most.

Some people, if they win the Powerball, they would move near the beach. Not me, give me the mountain and countryside, away from people over that any day.

Believe me there are days while riding the bus, there are some crazy people on the bus. I began wondering if there is a full moon or what. You hate to be on the bus after dark because you never know what kind of crazy people you might meet. I remembered when I was coming home from Concordia college after work and saw someone dressed like Marilyn Manson. It scared the hell out of me.

Let put this way, when I have a day off from work, I try to get my stuff done early enough in the day; so that I can home before dark. It seems that normal people rides the bus in the daytime; whereas the crazies come out after dark. It was especially noticeable when the bus fares were free because of the Pandemic. If I don’t have to be out after dark, I prefer not to be; and I love working at the Fargo Dome because it’s my sanctuary from a rough day at my other jobs.

This Halloween have a safe and Happy Halloween. Remember that you are running out of moonlight; so people seems to be crazier than they are in the daytime. Keep an eye on those shadows in the moonlight as well! It may be shadows that you don’t want to even see. I’m not talking about vampires either.

When I was younger, it didn’t scared me to be out after dark, walking or going to the bars. We didn’t even had to locked our doors back then; but we do now. I knew someone who never locked his house doors. I think to myself, you’re trusting or foolish.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween this year!! Watch for those extra shadows in the moonlight as you are out walking; because you never know who it might be. There are more than just ghosts, goblins, witches, and vampires out there you need to watch out for. Now you need to watch out for the crazies as well.

For those who probably doesn’t know, Tucker Carlson is commentator from Fox news who is under attack by the people behind cancelled culture and Woke. Even Tucker Carlson, himself says that NSA is spying on him. Now NSA stands for the National Security Agency. In which they deny as usual!

Now Tucker Carlson has his own show on Fox. He is a conservative and political commentator. He was born May 16, 1969 from San Francisco, California. He’s a true journalist. Making him 4 years younger than me.

The reason for him being attack is because of his stance against those on the Left, Big Tech, and people behind cancelled culture. They are attacking him because they do not like what he is saying about them, Biden or any other truth being told. They don’t want the truth be told. They want to keep the truth from coming out anyway possible. Because if the truth ever came out, they couldn’t control the American People; in which they want to do. Much like Socialism!

Seems like anyone who speaks the truth is attacked. I was taught by my step-dad to tell tell the truth even if it may hurt someone. Yet they would prefer to be politically correct by not telling the whole truth. They don’t want to offend anybody.

When Simon Cowell was one of the judges on the original American Idol, he was attacked for being truthful to the contestants. They accused Simon as being mean; when he was just being honest. I don’t know about you, but I would rather someone be honest with me than to sugarcoat the truth to spare my feelings. That’s not being mean, it’s being truthful. Yet as my step-dad would say, “we’re raising a nation of candy asses.”

Much of the same way, Donald Trump was also accused of being a bully because he stood up against his critics.

People behind cancelled culture just want to be able to control us anyway possible. They look for ways to cancelled anyone who will revealed the truth. They will do all they can to shut them down and shut them up. Much like Big Brother in the book “1984.”

Tucker Carlson is just the latest victim of cancelled culture.

I got into watching him because there is nothing else good on TV anymore. I would rather get the truth than be fed with lies from the fake mainstream news media. He seems to be a true journalist, who actually does his investigating before reporting the news. Even though he is political commentator and a fellow blogger like me. He just happen to be a big fish and an easy target.

Right now I’m a small fish in a big pond. My blog may be small now; so I can come in and attack them without them knowing what hit them. You could say, a surprise attack; such as Hitler used on Russia.

This make me think of the time when the mailman said that he was more scared of our small dog, Peanuts over our big dog. The reason he gave was because they can sneak up behind you and you wouldn’t know it.

My blog may be small now; but hopefully someday, I too will become somewhat bigger. When that time comes, I hope that either Tucker Carlson will remembered me standing up to defend him, and come to my defense. I hope that there will be someone out there to come to my defense against cancel culture when that time comes. Us true Patriots must stand together and united against anyone who wants to destroy America and our freedom. We must stand united with one another against anyone who wants to destroy America.

So to Tucker Carlson, you got a friend in me. You got someone in your corner as you are under attack.

No one like hearing the truth. As Evangelist Dwight Thompson once said, “Preachers would sugarcoat the truth because they don’t want to offend anybody.” We need the truth now more than ever right now.

Believe me, I never claim to be politically correct and I never will be. I will give you the truth straight out, and if you don’t like what you hear, that’s your problems, not mine. I’m not going to sugarcoat the truth for your or anybody. I will give you the facts to back up the truth straight up. If you don’t like it; that’s just way too bad! Either you will love me or hate me!

I believe that Tucker Carlson is the same way. I got his back and I hope that he will have my back when and if I face the same attack by cancel culture as well. We have to stick together. We’re in this together to protect America, our culture, and our history.

Have you forgotten the sacrifices those in healthcare made all last year during the Pandemic? How about those in the front line?

They worked long hours unprotected and without the vaccine in sight. Their lives were at risk everyday.

Last year, people were praising our healthcare workers and front line workers as they went out everyday, taking a risk for us all.

During the beginning of the Pandemic, we had to work unprotected without a mask. Our lives were at risk everyday when we went to work. We never lost our jobs because we were considered essential workers. We had to work long hard hours and many overtime because no one else wanted to work.

They wanted to stay home collecting the free money they were getting from the government. Also, they were so afraid of catching the virus.

I’m not talking about people who still had their job; they just were able to work from home, lucky dogs!

I’m talking about those loafers living off our hard earn dollars risking our lives for they can stay home collecting free money from the government.

We deserve a purple heart for our service during the Pandemic.

Instead, we get this demands, “Get the vaccine or be fired!”

See how quickly things had changed because of those who feared the unvaccinated.

What do they have to be afraid of, if they had gotten the vaccine?

Just because those in medical field doesn’t trust the vaccine, it goes to show that they know something that the CDC and Dr. Nazi Fauci not telling us and never will.

Just like after 9/11 back in 2001, some people want to forget about that unfaithful day. We should never forget that day; like we should never forget our healthcare and frontline workers working diligently, risking our lives for everyone else lively hood.

Believe me, if I didn’t need my job, I wouldn’t get the vaccine.

Chris Berg from the local CBS news station in Fargo, ND was fired because he refused to get the vaccine. He already had another job line up anyway, so he didn’t care. I say good for him for standing his ground.

Doesn’t Biden realized he created another crisis with this stupid vaccine mandate? The crisis of high unemployment, of less people working and more people sitting home. Who is going to pay your high taxes for your high inflation that he is creating with all this wasteful spending that the Democrats want to do?

Who are you going to call when you can’t get someone dependable enough to come to work and work like a dog these long hard hours risking their lives?

Even the airlines will struggle if they can’t get anyone to fly their planes or be of service to the people flying. It’s starting to happen already.

The hospital is full with patient; but not fully staff to take care of them all. They were struggling during the Pandemic because people were living in fear. Just imagine what it would be like once they get rid of all those who refuse the vaccine!

It will be a shamble! Much like in Canada and Socialist Medicine. People will be dying before they actually get any help; because no help will be available.

Yet Biden doesn’t care about the American people!

One thing, Biden is getting his unity out of it; but not the kind he may like. The American people across the country, at concerts, ballgames, race tracks, or wherever Biden may be; they are chanting, “FU Biden!” Even though the NBC news says it, “Way to go Brandon!” The American people all knows what is really being said.

So instead of condemning the healthcare workers who doesn’t want the vaccine, why not thanks them for their sacrifices they made for us all. They know something about it that CDC and Dr. Nazi Fauci doesn’t want us to know. If we knew the truth, the government couldn’t control us like they want to do. It’s all about control to Biden and his cronies.

It’s my body, my choice! I know what is best for my body, not the government. So FU Biden and it’s time you must get impeach for forcing vaccine on us all with this mandate. It’s unconstitutional.

Thanks to all the healthcare workers who risk their lives and made sacrifices for us all. They deserve a purple heart; not to be fired for refusing the vaccine.

These vaccine mandates is unconstitutional. Biden is an Unconstitutional President. A President is to upholds and protect the constitution; but all Biden had done since he took office was created his own rules that goes against the Constitution.

When Biden didn’t get his way with a full immunity of 100% vaccinated people in this country, he made this threat, “You all are gonna pay!”

They call Trump a bully when he stands up against his critics. How come they don’t call Biden a bully for that comment?

Now I’m against the vaccine and against the mandate. The government doesn’t have the right to tell us what to do with our body. In the words of the pro-choice people involving abortion, “It’s my body, my choice!” The government doesn’t have the right to control our body. Our employer doesn’t have the right to control our body.

When we used the quote, “My body, my choice,” the pro-choice people sure doesn’t like it when the shoes are on the other foot.

They call us terrorist because we refused the vaccine. Some even say, “Just die then!”

Now Howard Stern, who was against vaccinating your children from childhood diseases, is so quick to condemn the unvaccinated people. He wished for all of us to just die.

I wonder what Jenny McCarthy has to say about the vaccine? I mean, she too was against vaccinating kids from childhood illnesses. She is very quiet right now. Is she afraid that Hollywood would turn on her as well?

Nicki Minaj came out recently against the vaccine stating that she wouldn’t take it until she knows all the facts about it. When she did that, Hollywood jumped and attacked her. I have to say that I am damn proud of her.

We don’t know all the facts about the vaccine and never will. Dr. (Nazi) Fauci keeps lying to us. They keep moving the 8-ball. How can we know the truth when they keep doing that?

What is Dr. Fauci hiding from the people? He’s a big liar like the Clintons. He should lose his license and be sent to prison for treason and for murders of all who loss their lives because of the Coronavirus.

About 26 states are suing the Biden Administration for vaccine mandate, stating that it’s unconstitutional. It’s seems that it’s the Republican states that is against the vaccine mandate. They believe that the people has the freedom to either get the vaccine or not.

Whereas, the states run by the Democrats wants to control the people. They want to take away our freedom from us. The vaccine mandate is only the beginning of them controlling us and taking away our God-given freedom. They thinks that we are a bunch of rednecks who cannot think for ourselves. Just because we voted and supported Trump.

Not everyone who aren’t vaccinated voted for Trump. They just didn’t vote for Biden either.

In New York and California, they have the strictest law against the unvaccinated. If you are unvaccinated and don’t have the vaccination card, you cannot shop in their stores or eat in their restaurants. They don’t want you to fly either. That’s discrimination at it’s worst. That’s as bad as negroes have to sit in the back of the bus in the late 50’s and 60’s before the Civil Rights movement took place. So, who’s racist now?

The state of Montana joined other states such as Texas, Florida, and South Dakota not too make it mandatory for employer to force the employees to get the vaccine. I say good for them.

My Aunt was bullied to get the vaccine. She’s 82 years old and was against it; but she was bullied. How can they sleep at night knowing that they bullied an elderly person into getting the vaccine? She never hurt anyone and I doubt she ever will. If she was younger and stronger to stand up against the bullying, I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t had gotten the vaccine.

If it wasn’t for my job, I wouldn’t even had gotten the vaccine. I don’t trust it. I don’t want to be anyone guinea pig; and that’s what we are when it comes to the vaccine. We don’t know the long term affects behind the vaccine.

I wasn’t always against the vaccines and flu shots; but once I turned 50, I made a goal to lose weight the healthy way. I even chose to cleanse myself from any poisons; such as the vaccines. Luckily, I learned what to take to dilute the poison from the vaccine.

There are people who has a natural antibody against the Coronavirus; but they don’t even care. There are doctors and nurses who don’t trust the vaccine. What does that tell you?

A doctor told one of my cousin who just fought a long battle against cancer not to get the vaccine. Do you think those on the Left cares, hell no?

Before I was force to get the vaccine or lose my job, I was somewhat healthy. Shortly after getting the vaccine, I had a health scare recently. I had a dizzy spell, I was overheated, and nausea. I even had a headache. The next day, I was checked out, and my heart and blood pressure was good. I have a follow-up coming up this week.

Do you think that they will blame the vaccine? Hell no they won’t! They will just say that I don’t know what I’m talking about. They don’t want to admit that vaccine isn’t perfect.

If the vaccine is so good, why do people have to get a booster shot? And keeps getting a booster for the rest of their lives?

Why are they so afraid of the unvaccinated people? If they got the vaccine, they shouldn’t worry about the unvaccinated.

Why do we still have to wear a mask if you’re vaccinated?

These are good questions that they don’t want to answer and never will.

Biden mandated all employer of 100 or more employees to force the employees to get the vaccine. But what about the illegal immigrants coming across our Southern borders? They are not being made to get the vaccine. Biden couldn’t care less about the American people and upholding the Constitution. It’s grounds for an impeachment.

Since people are so against Biden mandating the vaccine, there are more and more rally of people shouting, “F.U. Biden!” across the country. People are even doing it at concerts and football games, of such places.

Stay tuned for next week part 2 blog as I will come in defense of our healthcare workers who are being fired for not getting the vaccine.

Do you ever wonder why some employers have a revolving door problem?

I mean, there are some jobs that seems to always be hiring, looking for help. Does it make you wonder why?

I’m sure you may know some of those employers; so I don’t have to name them for you. I may name a few to get the point across; but mainly I will give reasons for the revolving doors problems.

Before I do that, I just want to say this right off the top,

President Biden made a comment to the high unemployment because of the pandemic. He said, “The reason for high unemployment is because of all of the unvaccinated people out there still.”

Once again, Mr. Joe Biden, you are wrong. It’s not the unvaccinated who is to blame but you and the government. I mean, why work when you can sit home and get all this free money from the government. Businesses can’t compete with that. Government doesn’t create jobs! They just make it rough for anyone who own a business by putting too much regulation on them, creating more problems.

I do agree that employers should pay their workers better and give them decent benefits. When the government force it, businesses suffer, especially small ma and pa businesses. Or the bigger businesses take their business out of the country.

Something good is coming out of this though. Businesses are offering incentives and bonuses when they hired someone. The bad things about it though is after staying with the company long enough to get the bonus, they move on to the next job prospect with even a better bonus or incentive. The younger generation doesn’t stick with a job as long as the older generation. (I won’t go into detail on why because that’s a whole different blog.)

I will say this though. As you get older, you are more likely to think about retirement; so you don’t want to be job hunting. Whereas, when you are young, you don’t think about retirement. You just want to have fun, make as much money as you can and live for today. They believed that a person only live once; so you might as well live it up.

A better paying job with benefits is very important to keep the employees happy. There is another things that is also very vital and that is how you are being treated on the job by the manager. Is the manager a good one or a jerk?

I remembered when we were asked at Kmart to do a survey, rating our manager 2 years in a row. Both years, the manager at the time had gotten a bad review and couldn’t understand why. He called a meeting and chewed us all out because of his bad review.

So you see, Kmart was one of the businesses who had a revolving door problem; but they weren’t alone. I mean look at Walmart, Cash Wise, and Don’s Car wash, just to name a few.

Some managers probably shouldn’t be a manager. They don’t have the proper people skills, or cannot handle the stress, and so they take it out on the employees instead.

Back to that manager at Kmart before going into this book; after he retired, he was so much calmer. It was like either he couldn’t handle the stress of running the store or he was in the wrong job; and he hated his job.

I think to be a manager, a person must have good people skills. They should also go to manager’s training course, such as the Dale Carnegie’s training course.

A manager should act like a manager but not a dictator.

It seems that some people when they become a manager, the power goes to their head and they forget where they were before they became a manager. They rather sit in their office bossing people around instead of actually getting their hands dirty.

It’s important that your employees think you are smart. In other words, have a little common sense.

A manager shouldn’t abuse their their power they have over their employees. In other words, don’t be a jerk to them. Treat them with respect and you shall get the same respect back from them. If you abuse your authority, you will have no respect from your employees.

When morale is low, productivity will also be down.

Trust is also very important for a manager. If the employees can trust you enough to come to you; you’re doing your job as a manager. But if you make them uncomfortable when you are around. They just seethes every time you are in the office, you have a problem.

To improve employees satisfaction you must increase salaries, improve the working environment, respect them, appreciate them, don’t take advantage of your employees; otherwise, they may get burnt out. In other words, a manager must be willing to do the job so that the employees can have time off; especially on weekends(Sunday).

Keep your employees happy. A happy employees is productive employees.

When you show appreciation of your employees do it more than just a piece of paper. I’ll never forget back at Kmart when a different manager gave the employees a piece of paper saying, “we appreciate you.” We all look at him and just shook our head.

Like I said before, money is the best motivator to the employees. I remembered when they used to have drawing at the Fargo Dome at our annual meeting to win prizes, good prizes too.

I could go on and on but I think you can get the message.

Amazon has this policy that they would rather you not be a lifer working for them. You work so many years and then move on to something else; that way they don’t have to give you an increase in your salary, worry about your retirement, etc.

My question is: wouldn’t it be better to pay and treat your employees better so that they will want to stay? Isn’t it more expensive and time consuming to retrained a new person every so often? I don’t know about you but I would rather have a good employees to stick with the job than to be constantly looking for new help. It’s frustrating to be constantly looking for help. It’s hard on the employees you do have; who have to work like a dog because you’re short handed and can’t seem to get and keep the help.

Would you trust any human beings to decide what is right or wrong for you?

If you trust the government and science with the vaccine, why? It was science that got us in this mess.

I put my trust in God over the government and science.

My faith may not be as strong as some; but I trust the Lord to see me me through. As my grandmother told my mother, “The Lord will never gives you more than you can handle.”

How can you give a faithful account today of the Lord’s great love and patience for all who do not yet believe and know His full forgiveness?

All you have to do is ask God for wisdom and thank Him for His grace.

You just count your blessing for all that the Lord had done for you. He had seen me through some tough times in my life. I don’t know if I can count it all because it’s numerous than the stars in the heaven.

After the flood in Genesis, God put a rainbow in the sky as a covenant between Him and us to remind us of His great love. Believe me, there is no greater promise like God’s promises.

In Psalm 25:10, “All the ways of the Lord is loving and faithful.”

When Peter walked out on the water everything was fine until he looked down. That was when he started to sink. As Jesus reach His hand out to Peter, He said, “Ye of little faith!”

Is that what Jesus is saying to us when we put our trust in man, the government and/or science? I would say He does.

We cannot trust man or the government. They will fail us every time. Not my Lord and Savior though. He promised to never leave nor forsake us. We can trust that promise for God.

Even though Jesus was crucified on the cross and died; He rose again and is seated at the right hand of God our Father. What other religion can say that? There is none!

Even though Jesus may not be here on earth physically, He is still watching over us. Even when He is gone, He will never leave us.

Chapter 11 of Hebrews is known as the faith chapter. In verse 1, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

In Hebrews 11:6, “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Grace makes us acceptable to God before we even begin our spiritual journey.

It’s through the work of the Holy Spirit that lives in the believers that gives us strength day by day. It’s not the church that saves us anymore than man, the government, or science. Even the church can fail us!

Is this what we’re doing everyday in our neighborhoods, on the job, or even in churches? Are we talking to people, sharing our faith with others? Are we spending our relational bandwidth with our Christian friends and unconsciously excluding those who don’t know Him? Are you unconsciously exclusive to people outside the faith?

It’s not the church building itself that leading people to God. It’s the people who is not afraid to share their faith with others. We all have a story to tell.

So who do you trust as the final authority for truth? Do you trust God or man?

As for me, I will serve and trust the Lord. My trust is in God, Our Father and Jesus our Lord and Savior. I will not put my trust in the government and science; or even man. I will not trust the vaccine no matter what they say.

To those who trust the vaccine, I say to you as Jesus said to Peter, “Ye of little faith!”

They cannot take my faith away. I will trust and obey for there is no better way to be happy in Jesus. The Lord had always come through for me and He never had failed me yet and never will.

We all have a story to tell. What is your story of faith? Are you willing to share that story with others who do not believe?
