Is Black Lives Matter Really Legit?




Is Black Lives Matter Really Legit?


Just a quick note – Last night (7-22-2020) I saw the interview on Shannon Breen’s show on Fox. She interviewed the founder of Black Lives Matter Utah (can’t remember her name) and Senator Lee (R). They were discussing the bill Senator Tim Scott (R) attempted to get voted on but it was blocked by Senate Dems. The interview focused on law enforcement reforms that are perceived as needed nationwide and repeatedly the BLM lady kept saying she was hopeful that after 6 years now people are having the hard talks on racism. She urged Congress to pass a reform bill and urged Republicans to come to the table. This all sounded reasonable and positive. However one thing sorely missing in this interview was a representation from Senate Democrats? Why were there not folks from both sides of the isle? So why was her plea only to Republicans?


Another “elephant in the room” that was not discussed was how the nationwide rioting and vandalism in the name of BLM was not condemned or even mentioned by anyone on the program?


I’m no Einstein but how can you truly have police reform without addressing the punitive side of lawbreaking (vandals, rioters, looters and murderers)? We have state and federal laws that are selectively enforced or ignored by citizens and elected officials alike. Why not address the other side of the coin?


If we are to take Black Lives Matter serious their method of means justify the ends doesn’t hold water. When you profess to seek change to the system it is not through demands, but with reformative change recommendations. You have a list of grievances and a list of recommendations to be discussed by both sides. If one side or the other has a hidden agenda and/or refuses to participate in open discussions there can be no negotiation.


You most certainly do not employ or allow any other entity to hijack your agenda with unlawful conduct and expect to be seen as separate from it. When it happens you must come out strongly and forcefully against the lawless behavior and actions being committed in your name or you own it.


This is just my opinion but BLM should rethink their banner and their image. A black in your face fist is not a sign of respect but one of defiance. Had my kids or grandkids come to me with a raised fist, they would have lost the fight without every saying a word and left with a sore hinny.


In my 70 years I have always see myself as who I really am. A man with a family to support and now with grandkids and great-grandkids I am proud of. I have taught them to love God, our family and honor our country with its symbols, customs and traditions. Treat everyone with respect and how you want to be treated. As a multi-cultural family I want them to know and understand their heritage and where our family came from.


If you want to be seen and treated equally as a man or woman you must come as an equal; act as an equal and see yourself as an equal. When you see yourself as a victim or as a hyphenated American you are placing yourself at a disadvantage from the start.


Do we need police reform? Yes – most definitely, but true reform comes by honoring and obeying the Rule of Law which in the United States is the Constitution. Willful violation of the law is criminal and subject to arrest and prosecution, as it should. Willful misconduct by law enforcement is equally criminal. It must be dealt with swiftly and fairly under the law, not tolerated, hidden or swept under the proverbial rug.


Lastly, do Black Lives Matter – of course they do. All lives matter. Baby lives matter. We are one people united in purpose to see that every life is treated equally and fairly under the law as stated in the Constitution of the United States. I am the Real Truckmaster!


Cause and Effect of the Coronavirus in America




Cause and Effect of the Coronavirus in America


Do you remember when we first learned about the dreaded Wuhan-Virus a number of things began to take place?


  • First was a worldwide shortage of toilet paper, paper towels and hand sanitizer and other cleaning supplies
  • Next there was a worldwide supply shortage causing farmers, ranchers and processing plants to become unable to meet the demand from eggs, milk, pork, beef and who knows what else
  • Farmers and ranchers were told to slaughter their livestock, dump their milk and eggs onto the ground as it was too costly
  • We were told that worldwide hospital ERs were being overwhelmed and portable hospitals began to be deployed to places like Seattle, Chicago, New York City and other places across the nation
  • We were told there were non-existent or insufficient stocks of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in hospitals across the nation
  • We were then told that no ventilators could be found and they were critical for life-saving treatment
  • We were told there was no vaccine or medicine to treat this COVID-19
  • We were told that if you became infected it was fatal
  • Then came the lockdowns, stay safe at home to flatten the curve
  • No going outside, no visitations in hospitals, nursing homes and care centers
  • No church gatherings, services and no funerals
  • Self-Isolate and wear a mask, hospital gloves and gowns
  • Businesses were considered essential (liquor stores, pot shops, big box stores & home supply stores) could open with limitations
  • Businesses considered non-essential (hair and nail salons, massage parlors, churches, mom & pop stores, exercise centers, swimming pools, beaches, hiking trails and national parks) were closed
  • Hydroxychloroquine and Z-Pak were the miracle drug that reversed the effects of the virus almost immediately or within 24 hours
  • Once it was announced that President Trump was taking the HCQ + Z it suddenly became an ineffective and lethal medication
  • President Trump’s political rallies would endanger hundreds of people who don’t wear masks and don’t do social distancing
  • Public gatherings could not exceed 100 persons provided they wore facemasks and social distanced 6 feet apart, protests and riots were exempt from these mandates
  • The latest is a nationwide coin shortage, stores are not receiving their coin shipments, banks do not have adequate supplies of coins and shoppers are being urged to roundup to help the needy or use plastic
  • The CDC has been collecting data on COVID-19 infections, deaths and hopefully recovery, but somehow the data became contaminated or grossly mislabeled and is considered useless


Is it me or does anybody else see a pattern here? Because this is an election year and we are now just over 100 days until the November 3, 2020 presidential election we are hearing politicians in full panic mode as they have no idea how to react.


For the past 2 months we have been seeing protest marches, violent rioting, burning, looting and killings in cities across the nation that resemble third world countries. What have we heard from members of congress, state and local officials? Trump is to blame. There is no accountability for the actions of the violent few. Law Enforcement has been hog-tied by their political bosses as evil reigns in city after city.


I don’t care if you’re a democrat, republican, independent or a speckled ostrich if you do not recognize what has been happening all around this country you are part of the problem. Maybe you are the problem because it was you a registered voter who either voted blue or not at all in past mid-term and presidential elections yet is everyone else to blame?


This country is in the midst of a very uncivil war with one side street fighting, no rules and no holds barred while the other side sticks their heads in the sand hoping it will just go away. Which side are you on?


This land is our land. This country is our country. Red, White or Blue – We are America. It is time to drive the domestic terrorists from our midst. They seek to divide and destroy. We seek to unite. There can be no coexisting with those determined to pull us asunder. Either we stop them or it will get much worse.


If you’re a praying person who believes in the power of prayer and that God is fully in control, now is the time to humble yourself and pray for God’s grace and his guidance during these troubling times. Pray over our nation, our leaders and pray for our enemies. Let God be God now and every day. – Amen! I am the Real Truckmaster!



An Open Letter to Colorado Governor Jared Polis

An Open Letter to Colorado Governor Jared Polis


Governor Polis,

I see what is happening to America and specifically to Colorado during the COVID-19 pandemic. I understand and share your concern over the increase in case numbers we are seeing being reported.  I do not have an undergraduate degree nor am I a professional in the medical field. However I disagree strongly with your assessment and decision that Colorado needs to be mandated to wear masks or face coverings indoors or in many cases outdoors.


I take the medical advice of doctors, nurses and medical professionals very seriously. Prominent professionals have said that the prolonged wearing of masks may become fatal for those with certain medical issues and the wearing of dirty masks may even cause viral infections that can kill. Recently these same doctors are saying that mandating masks this late in the pandemic is not wise. It should have been done from the beginning, not 4 or 5 months down the road. I tend to agree with them.


Masks and face coverings that are not professional high-grade specifically made for viral infections do not stop the virus, nor do they protect others from getting it. The commonly available cloth or paper masks we see in stores or online are useless to stop the spread. The only useful purpose of these types of masks is to prevent someone who is sneezing or coughing to freely pass germs to others. These masks should be cleaned regularly with soap and water or replaced frequently. Wearing a facemask while driving is dangerous as some drivers may pass out for lack of oxygen.


Recently you called “Selfish Bastards” those refusing to adhere to your mandates. You sir are wrong! What Colorado needs, you cannot mandate through executive orders out of the Governor’s office – Common Sense!


It is common sense to stay home unless you decide to go somewhere for necessity or pleasure.

It is common sense to social distance around strangers.

It is common sense to stay connected with family and friends.

It is common sense to visit the sick and dying in hospitals and nursing homes.

It is common sense to treat others the way you want to be treated.


Governor you have led Colorado down the path of closure by declaring who or what is essential or non-essential and that sir is not yours to determine. Every person is essential and every business began because it was essential for its particular purpose or product. Those deemed non-essential failed by their own merit or lack of it.


I urge you to stop following the pack and lead Colorado into a new era of prosperity by opening up the state WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS. Let us get back to the life of liberty and chasing after the American dream.


I am 70 years old and have spent more than 30 years in Colorado working, raising my family and urging others to come to Colorful Colorado until now. I have a bachelor degree in computer science and a certificate of life-long learning at the school of hard knocks. I am a retired military professional who has lived around the world. What I have seen and experienced tells me that we as Coloradoans and Americans deserve better than this. Open Up Colorado – Do It Now! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Beyond the Unthinkable




Beyond the Unthinkable


Have you ever talked back to your mom? Sassed your dad? How did that work for you?

Have you ever gone to your boss at work and demanded……anything? What about while working at a job you really like you refuse service to a customer wearing a uniform and a badge? What about working in food service or fast food and did something unspeakable to the food of a customer who was you didn’t like? Or worse yet, pulled out a gun and shot someone because they disrespected you in front of your friends? Maybe you speak out for “women’s rights” to take the life of a baby in the womb? How much sense does any of this make?


I find no pleasure in watching the news broadcast the lawlessness being played out every newscast on every station day after day. Someone recently told me it was a bad time to be living in times such as these. I disagree because it’s a great time to see history unfolding all around us. It’s an even greater time watching biblical prophecy unfold and to be a follower of Jesus Christ telling others the good news “Jesus Loves Them”.


2 Timothy 3:1-4

1“But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!”


I don’t claim to understand what is going on or who is behind the scenes pulling the strings but rest assured that Almighty God is fully in control. The good, the bad and the ugly he will use to fulfill his purpose and bring glory and honor to him.


All of these street thugs acting out every fantasy they can imagine. Tearing down statues, defacing property while they destroy, loot, and burn to their hearts content will never be satisfied. The sad part is that they need Jesus just as much as we each do. They don’t know it and won’t unless someone tells them. Will that someone be you?


Romans 10:8-17

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.


11 It is just as the Scripture says: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and gives richly to all who call on Him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

14 How then can they call on the One in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” 16 But not all of them welcomed the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.


The election of a president has never had a reaction such as we see today which is not about Donald J. Trump. It is about evil continuing to rebel against truth and right. I won’t call it a battle between good vs evil because there is no power on earth that does not answer to Almighty God.


I must ask whose side are you on; who’s your daddy; who’s water are you carrying? – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Democrats the Party of Hate




Democrats the Party of Hate


In today’s volatile state of affairs it’s hard to imagine how the new Progressive Democratic Party can openly embrace domestic terrorism. We have watched as state and local Democrats have walked arm in arm with peaceful protestors while failing to condemn the violent rioting, looting, burning and killing of Americans. On the national level Congressional Democrats simply blame it on President Trump. What I don’t understand is how Democratic voters either stick their heads in the sands of denial or ignore the elephant in the room? That elephant is Democratic Racism.


The social injustice of police brutality resulting in the murder of George Floyd brought the community together as one. America was shocked! It was an opportunity for action and domestic terrorist groups were prepped and readily sprang into action. They converged on Minneapolis like the plague. It was not a spontaneous response, but a well planned and executed plan of organized chaos. As community lead marches protesting this man’s death began, so did the hijacking of those marches turning them into deadly violent riots.


Did the Mayor of Minneapolis or the Governor of Minnesota stand up and make a statement of community support or publically condemn the violence. Did they identify and hold accountable the officer(s) involved in this public execution of a private citizen? No they did not. But did they rally law enforcement or activate the National Guard? No, they condoned the violence by their silence then painted all members of law enforcement by an erroneous broad-brush. They caved in to appease the terrorists at the expense of many American lives, homes and businesses. Rioting turned into burning and looting and nobody in authority stood up to stop it.


Emboldened by the lack of response marches, riots and looting took hold in cities across the nation. Soon terrorists were declaring sections of American cities as autonomous zones, much like the sanctuary cities and states that we’ve seen created across the nation.


As expected Congressional Democrats began voicing not their disdain for the violence committed against American citizens, but their accusations of mishandling this violence by the current administration. They attempted to blame and transferred their inaction to the President.


As the violence increased and businesses and churches burned, statues vandalized and toppled over, Congressional Democrats placed their own stamp of approval on it, making themselves complacent. Next were calls to defund the police and shut down the police which became major political talking points across the nation by politicians at every level.


As the violence continued President Trump urged mayors and governors to stop violence and bring it under control. He offered federal help and resources, but was turned down by many governors who said they didn’t need it. Other states and cities requested and received National Guard support.


While the violence continues Americans are dealing with the national response to the COVID-19 shutdown and watching as governors who took little to no action against rioters and looters still attempt to force Americans to stay home and wear masks or face stiff penalties. How can that stand? It cannot and should not be allowed to continue and in this election year it will be the voters who decide if politics as usual will continue. Democrats are the party of mobs, while Republicans are the party of jobs. Which do you prefer a handout or a hand up? – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Why Call Them National Leagues?




Why Call Them National Leagues?


We have the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Association of Stock Car Races (NASCAR). What about that organization located right here in Colorado Springs with the circle ring things overseeing our Olympic competing teams? Maybe I’m wrong but I thought a national league team represented their nation inspiring national pride and patriotism? What I see demonstrated over the past 4 years alone leads me to believe otherwise. It didn’t begin with Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem or the team captain of the US Volleyball Team after beating out the Thailand national team. It’s rooted much deeper than that.


We first saw this behavior manifest itself openly when members of a California high school basketball team on an overseas goodwill tour in China took their shoplifting skills abroad with them. They were caught red handed and placed in hotel confinement pending trial in a Chinese court for stealing sunglasses. What kind of a message did this convey to local merchants about the ugly American stereotype? One of the parents who was with the team in China called it a “no big deal”, like it happens all the time back home.


Because of this international incident, newly elected President Trump intervened and arranged for them to be released without charges and transported home not having to see the inside of a Chinese prison or worse as they could have faced the death penalty or life in prison. The “no big deal” resulted in the boys involved making a public apology to the president, only to retract it later saying they were forced to by school officials.


This cancerous political correct attitude began to spread like those California wildfires and soon team members lost their pride of being on a national team by openly and willingly disgracing our nation and its symbols and traditions. To make matters worse the owners of national ranked teams began crumbling in the face of criticism by not putting a stop to it. The NFL commissioner chose to look the other way until it too is “no big deal” and national media outlets decided to begin cutting away and not televising the playing of the National Anthem. I’m not a big sports fanatic but the final straw was when NASCAR bowed down to political correctness and announced it would play the “Black National Anthem” before the National Anthem of the United States.


It is time for these nationally ranked sports teams to remove the word “National” from their official names and from their memorabilia. It is too late to remove players who willingly refuse to demonstrate national pride. That should have been done from the start. One bad apple can and did spoil the whole barrel.


I must place the blame squarely where it belongs – on “you” the fans who eagerly pay for season tickets or buy the jerseys and other memorabilia. It is you who continue to pay to watch the game on ESPN and sit in front of your widescreen televisions or at sports bars gulping down peanuts, popcorn and beer as your favorite player makes that once of a lifetime play. It is you who can’t wait for the National Anthem to get over with so the game can begin, but think those super bowl commercials are worth watching.


Well hello! If you have feel no pride in living in the greatest nation on earth where you are free to live prosperously and in peace as the world around us is torn asunder – You have my permission to leave! That’s right pack up your “stuff”, throw a dart on the map and move there. Who knows you may like it there? I guarantee that you will soon learn that what you left behind means more to me than it ever meant to you with your ungrateful cursing and complaining of the rights and freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States. I’ll bet you either voted Democratic or not at all. That too is your right.


Know that freedom isn’t free, its paid for in blood of patriots before you! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


In the Aftermath of the Looting and Rioting

minnesota after the violence of 2020



In the Aftermath of the Looting and Rioting


It’s like waking up from a bad dream and finding only ashes. My heart goes out to the people of Minneapolis and other cities across the nation where Mayors and Governors cowered in the face of evil.


May 25th 2020 was a day of choice for Americans. It was the day one man wearing blue killed another man in custody publically and in broad daylight. It was morally and legally wrong, tragic and Americans became outraged. As the community began to speak out against this violent act against George Floyd he became a household name. Something else happened that day as evil men and women seized the opportunity to begin an organized and coordinated nationwide attack on our nation in a wave of violence not seen on our streets since the Civil War.


At a time when Americans battled the COVID-19 virus, politicians battled for control of our nation and domestic terrorists began a reign of terror on our streets hijacking peaceful protests and turning cities into wasteland with death and destruction everywhere. Law Enforcement quickly became outnumbered as city and state leadership became aligned with the terrorists. Waves of shootings, violence, burning and looting filled television newscasts as terrorists declared they were coming.


Statues were vandalized and toppled with law enforcement standing by watching, their hands were tied. Police stations, vehicles and officers became isolated and targeted. The chanting from the crowds became louder and louder to defund the police and abolish the police.


2020 is an election year, and the Democratic hatred of President Trump was palatable as “No Trump in 2021 and beyond” emanated from prominent Democrats in Congress. Like the cities devastated by the campaign of terror, the welfare of the people of America was lost to petty politics.


American voters must open their eyes to the political raping of American that has gone on under Democratic governance. In a short three months the presidential election will take place and those same elected officials who failed to serve and protect you will once again ask for your vote so they can continue their own agenda which does not have your safety in mind. The same leadership who marched in the streets and aligned themselves with terrorists and street thugs are the same ones who will now ask for your support.


Here we are six weeks after the murder of George Floyd and many of American inner cities have been ransacked and destroyed. Democratic mayors and governors who catered to the mobs now beg for federal financial help to rebuild what they allowed to be destroyed by their irresponsible governance. I’m sorry but until these politicians are held criminally responsible and accountable for their actions nothing will improve in these devastated areas.


America deserves better. You deserve better. November 3rd, 2020 is the day you can make your voice heard by voting in new elected officials at city, state and federal levels. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


And God Hath Said




And God Hath Said


Exodus 15:26 – He (God) said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”


I find it interesting that while God was showing himself to Moses on the mountain as a flaming bush the Israelites were complaining, fearing he would never return. When he came down from the mountain he carried the stone tablets that listed God’s do’s and don’ts for the successful living of mankind.


The Ten Commandments

(Exodus 20: 2-17)


Have no other gods before God

Do not worship things instead of God

Do not take the name of the Lord your God in vain

Remember the Sabbath day, keep it holy

Honor your father and your mother

Do not kill

Do not commit adultery

Do not steal

Do not speak falsely against your neighbor

Do not keep your eyes on anything your neighbor has



When you follow the 10 Commandments you will make better judgments:


You will begin to show respect for other people and their property.

You will obey the rules set down by your parents and by authorities.

You will know the difference between right and wrong and make wise choices.

You will understand that the impression of yourself that you give to others will stay with them forever.

There is a time and a place for everything.

There is nothing new under the sun.

To live is to learn.

Parents are to provide a loving and nurturing environment for their children.

Parents provide boundaries and teach their children to follow them.

Parents provide the necessities of life (food, shelter, clothing, and discipline).

Parents grant and take away privileges (time for: friends, television, telephones, games, computers and radios).

The mind of a child is not the same as the mind of an adult.

Children must learn to be obedient, play, work, and interact with others.

Adults must learn to productively contribute to society.

Respect is something everyone deserves, it is easier to give it, and harder to receive it.


Disobeying these rules of life brings misery and unhappiness.


In the New Testament Jesus gave us a message of hope and God’s love for man.


Luke 10:27 – He (Jesus) answered: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’.”


How can you love your neighbor as yourself when you don’t even like what you see in the mirror?


It’s easy to see those who display the love of God or a love of self. The world as we know it has gone insane. Politicians have embraced a love for power. We can see that absolute power corrupts absolutely. Political Correctness is a spiritual cancer of the mind where right is wrong and wrong is the only right. Tolerance is only tolerated to push a specific PC narrative.


We are to believe that only lefts have rights but rights have no rights – wrong!


We have been told that knowledge is power. Look around at an unhappy and sinful world without hope and realize that everybody needs Jesus. The good news that every Christian can give to a world in need is God loves you, even now when you hate and despise him by your actions, deeds and words.


John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.


John 3: 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me


Do you want to know what hell is really like? Take the world we are seeing today, remove God from the picture for eternity. A life without God is a life without hope. Only God is good. There is no hope in Buddha. There is no hope in Mohammad. There is no hope in Confucius. There is no hope in religion.


Man has a sin problem. God is the cure. Man’s only hope is God. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Reevaluating the Priorities of Americans




Reevaluating the Priorities of Americans


The lockdown has caused negative and positive effects for American families, workers and corporations. Relegating Americans to the ranks of the unemployed and requiring them to self-isolate at home has had mixed blessings. No church services; no schools; no entertainment; no sports; no eating at restaurants; mom & pop businesses; people to people jobs (hair, nails, massage, dental and a lot more have been deemed non-essential by the political elite. That means no paychecks, no food, no rent and no longer any viable means of support ultimately causing the shutdown and collapse of the US economy in the name of COVID-19. How convenient. Not to worry because the government willingly handed out a $1,200 stimulus check for each adult and a smaller amount for each qualifying child dependent and unemployed workers were encouraged to apply for unemployment and that made everything all right.


Grocery chains were allowed to open with modified restrictions – hours for senior shoppers, arrows on the floor directing traffic inside the stores. Signs requiring face masks and social distancing. Corporations adapted certain functions to work from home; churches began podcasting services before being allowed to reopen while social distancing and wearing face masks and in some states there was imposed a ban on singing in church. Many areas imposed bans on swimming, walking or hiking in parks.


People are social by nature and human to human contact is what makes us all unique. Being confined at home, away from family and friends Americans turned to social media as one primary way of staying in touch. Enter social media political correctness where shadow banning, fact checking and blocking or removal from the platform became accepted practice of interfering when an alternate way of thinking was expressed.


As domestic terrorist groups began to sweep across America many individuals, corporations and even local and city government politicians began jumping on the political bandwagon attempting to deflect any wrath aimed their way, leading to the political raping of America by toppling historical statues; the burning of police stations and vehicles; murder of law enforcement officers and innocent civilians alike in the name of “offense”. Americans began to see clearly which side of the political fence local and state officials stood.


On the national scale instead of the condemnation of violence, calls to cease and desist what we heard was a national call for more violence aimed at removing President Trump from office and/or preventing his reelection in November. Members of congress have called for the removal and reshaping of our government and our American way of life. Let me say it again – Members of congress have called for the removal and reshaping of our government and our American way of life.  America and the world are at crossroads.


The positives coming out of this shutdown of America far exceed the negatives. Parents turned to home schooling where online courses were available for traditional writing, reading and arithmetic made a comeback, as did teaching social studies, history and world cultures. No longer bound by biased indoctrinational teachings students would learn and develop the necessary skills needed to succeed in the world of today.


We ask God to heal our land and make things right again, but fight tooth and nail as he answers our prayers in a way that will bring honor and glory to him. How much sense does that make? Maybe what we need is to exercise our right to remain silent and let God be God in our lives and over our nation! – I am the Real Truckmaster!



An Unfathomably Stupid Idea




An Unfathomably Stupid Idea


Well you asked for it, you’ve fought the good fight against common sense and your allies are the Main Stream Media, the United States Congress and The Destructively Progressive Democratic Party and hangers on from the Republican Party. You know who you are, the anti-trump crowd, the no trump – no way, no USA crowd. Political correctness is a disease of the mind that corrupts rational thinking to the point that everything is racist and racism must be destroyed at any and all cost.


The journey to end racism must include renaming everything offensive. Let’s start with terminology that is offensive like calling a spade a spade; referring to sex as offensive; names are offensive; people are offensive; and the thoughts of man are offensive. We must change it all because – 1 person is offended? Well that is offensive to me and I demand that you change nothing.


Yet if you insist let’s start by renaming colleges, sports teams, entertainment, communications, public and private businesses and corporations, cities, counties, states and even the UNITED in our name as it is offensive to someone somewhere sometime and language is offensive.


Do you know that what you say in one language is extremely offensive in another? Name a color that is not even a color that when spoken in one language the used or referred to in another language will make your blood run cold, your temperature rise and may even cause your blood pressure to spike?


Without being specific to an actual year or date (because I don’t really know) a simple peasant working outside in the hot sun caught a glimpse of a stranger moving in the distance. Having never seen anyone like that stranger before the peasant saw that his body appeared to be much darker than his sun darkened skin tone and said this person is mucho negro. When translated into English we would say that person is very black. And many years later we would say, “That’s when the fight started”. In another time and place a family is working on a small patch of ground planting crops to feed themselves later in the year. They are approached by someone riding a horse and not understanding the language they use signs as a language to communicate. Later they are at a country store and say they had a visit with someone whose skin was different, they refer to the rider with red skin. In these two examples there is no malice of thought or racial overtones. Simply people describing other people they have encountered. It happens when one treats another as they want to be treated. During fits of anger and words are exchanged in anger or when someone becomes wanting of what another person has and as such has determined that the other person is undeserving of what they have by the person wanting possession of it then words or terms becomes offensive.


When thoughts turn into words leading to action to change, destroy or erase history or the memory of another and call to it offensive is plain outright dumb, a stupid idea. We are to learn from history not repeat the same mistakes.


You can ban words, rename streets, schools, towns or buildings in the name of racism or call it offensive but you change nothing except confusion. Abraham Lincoln once asked “How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg?” Many answered “Five”. Lincoln replied, “Four legs. No matter if you call the tail a leg, it is still a tail.” (closely and loosely paraphrased).


It is totally irrational, irresponsible and insane to think tearing down or changing historical monuments or changing the names of towns or institutions because you call them offensive or racist. The only thing you have done is put yourself on full display as ignorant of the history you call racist or offensive. It is history and your “offense” of it doesn’t not matter or change it.


It is better to change your attitude about it instead otherwise you run the risk of offending Almighty God, the Creator. After all what matters is what offends God – what he calls Sin! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
