In the opener, and/or, the pilot, the producers of this new soap opera both promote and condone lying, intimidation, fraud, cheating, deception and extortion…

A Question from TV Guide’s review; …

What happens when “con men” try to do good?

In the real world, – you get a production entitled…

But then, (what the hey), America is a “Democratic Republic” and in a Democratic Republic, ..if the folks wish to be stupid, it’s one of their (inalienable) rights.

Colin from Prestwick, Scotland,   (Article after article).

As a man of letters for more than 50 years, with your talent I would advise you to write something that would provide you a benefit. You’re flair is being wasted in this media.

Hello Colin, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your complimentary comment and your considerate opinion.

Albeit in truth, if someone were to actually write me a check (or slip me cash under the table) ..for something I wrote, ..I would either stroke out in amazement, ..or I’d buy something that would undoubtedly have the capacity to hurt me, ..either way, ..I would lose my standing with those who believe me to be a bigoted Philistine…

According to Merriam-Webster: “Phil·is·tine,” (in context) A smug, ignorant, middle-class individual who is regarded as antagonistic to artistic and cultural values.

Just being a little facetious, ..as attempting “jocularity” is one of my standing character flaws.

Have a great day my “new” friend, ..Chuck.

Ronald from Trenton,     (Things that go bump in the night).

If you were truly a conservative person as you want people to believe, you would embrace universal healthcare because it helps everyone.

Hello Ronald, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comment and your opinion…

With that said now, it is (my humble opinion) that you need a refresher course on the meaning of conservatism.

According to Webster: “con·ser·va·tism,” 1. The inclination, especially in politics, (to maintain the existing) or traditional order.

2. A political philosophy or attitude emphasizing (respect for traditional institutions), “distrust” of (government activism), and (opposition to sudden change) in the “established” order.

3. Caution or moderation, as in behavior or outlook.

Question: “Where and when” (did I) publish (anything) that heralds the idea I’m interested in (helping) everyone?

America does not belong to the people we elect, America belongs to us, “we the people.”

Question: When are you “brainwashed academics” going to come to understand that?

The Second Amendment wasn’t written only as a means to protect us, “we the people”…

Minuteman statue 2

..the Second Amendment was written to provide “we the people” with the means to protect ourselves and “our” Nation.

As to my status as a bigot, I stand proud as a bigot opposed to stupidity…

I believe in value given for value received.

According to Webster: “val·ue,” An amount, as of goods, services, or money, considered to be a fair and suitable equivalent for something else.

Frederick Douglass 1a

(Frederick Douglass).

Frederick Douglass, February 1818 – February 20, 1895), was an African-American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman.

After escaping from slavery, Douglas became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining notice for his dazzling oratoryand incisive antislavery writing.

He stood as a living counter-example to the (slaveholders’) arguments that slaves “lacked the intellectual capacity” to function as independent American citizens.

Douglass wrote several autobiographies. He eloquently described his experiences as a slave in his 1845 autobiography, …

“Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass,

an American Slave.

..which became a bestseller and influential in supporting abolition, as did the second, …

“My Bondage and My Freedom (1855).”

After the Civil War, he remained an active campaigner against slavery and wrote his last autobiography, …

“Life and Times of Frederick Douglass.”

First published in 1881 and revised in 1892, which covered events through and after the Civil War.

Douglass also actively supported women’s suffrage, and held several public offices.

Without his approval, Douglass became the first African American nominated for Vice President of the United States as the running mate of Victoria Woodhull on the “Equal Rights Party” ticket.

A firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant, Douglass famously said, …

Frederick Douglass quote 1

Greatness and truth can come from the mouth of anyone, irregardless of ethnicity, education or ideology…

The U.S. Constitution as written by our founding fathers is an amazing document, as it provides freedom and opportunities for responsible men and women who believe in self-reliance.

modern slavery 3b

As the U.S. Constitution is adjusted by “our” elitist politicians and unbridled moneylenders, ..America once again stands at the threshold of slavery.

I wish you well in your future, Chuck

Lydia from Palm Springs,        (The “other side” of my life).

Hi, I want you to know that I have become addicted to your writing. I have a website and I blog once or twice a month to share stories about my friends, my neighbors and my cat.

I don’t know how anybody could write about all the things you write about, but I love it, don’t stop. Lydia 

in reply - Page break 1a

Hello Lydia, thank you for visiting my site and for sharing, I appreciate your participation every bit as much (if not more) than you appreciate reading what I write, ..because without you, ..I wouldn’t have a reason to write.

I visited your site on Friday as per your invitation and I found it to be every bit as valuable as mine, (if not more so), since there can never be too much civility in the world, or too many pictures of cats doing what cats do… 

Sadie and me 3

This is Sadie, ..our family cat. 

She graciously allows my wife and I to live in her house and see to her needs, ..and all she asks in return is that we leave her alone when she feels like napping.

It’s been real, ..Chuck.

Matt from Fort Smith,     (California, sunny or shady).

First I’d like to tell you how much I enjoy your website, before telling you how much I don’t care about what the damn fools in California do.

I was born in southern California and lived there up until 1988, (Oceanside), (Mission Viejo), then (Lancaster). It was a nice place to live in the 50s, then the 60s came along and brought us surfers and hippies and they didn’t leave.

Lancaster was tolerable through most of the 80s, but then you being from California as well, I don’t have to tell you.

For me personally if I was doing the cutting, I would divide the state into one inch squares and deed it equally among everyone who gets across the border before next Thursday at 6 o’clock. Matt.

Hello Matt, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for enjoying what I write. I was born in Lompoc, California and we moved around quite a lot as well, as my father enjoyed explicating; “We moved every time the rent came do.”

When I was three weeks old we moved from Lompoc, to Ventura, into a house with its backdoor (depending on the tide), between 30 and 60 feet from the water.

Not that I have any memories of that house, as within days my father received his draft notice from Uncle Sam.

My father always wanted a place right on the beach, but my mother didn’t care for sweeping sand, consequently as soon as my father departed for boot camp, we moved to, (El Rio), for three months, then on into Oxnard proper, and/or, into a military housing project where my family spent the duration of the second world war.

But enough about me, I totally love your idea about splitting up California, albeit I might be your only fan, as God blessed few people with my maniacal sense of humor.

Drop by again, anytime and often…  Chuck.

Rooster from Brockton, Mass.        (The Undead).

I have a question, is your blog as fun to write as it is to read? Keep up the good work and keep up the pressure on Berry. Rooster.

Hello Rooster, thank you for visiting my site and for taking the time to leave a comment, ..as well as your enthusiasm, your question and your support… 

To answer your question, ..”you bet yer sweet bippi,” ..in fact if I was completely honest, ..my “blather” is even more fun to write than it is to read. 

Albeit, beyond being fun, it’s “educational” and for someone like me, ..(a pitiful high school dropout), ..who missed out on his proper “fetchin’ up” via academia, ..I can use all the help I can get.

Always enjoy hearing from a reader, (friend or foe), Chuck.

Elizabeth from Trenton,         (Only in America).

I received an email (forward) joke from a friend in New York about a month ago about some guy from Canada mocking David Letterman’s top ten list.

Did you receive that same email and did you use it to write your weblog on Friday?

If you did, you’re bryond amazing. Elizabeth

Hello Elizabeth, ..I sure did, ..and I sure did, ..now with your query hopefully satisfied? Thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comment and your question.

I received the forward with (jocular content), from my friend Norma who lives in central California. I don’t make a habit of making over (frivolous forwards), ..albeit, “now a then” one happens along that strikes my fancy and I go for it. 🙂

Drop in again, ..lots!   Chuck.

Elton from Corpus Christi,    (Breaking up is hard to do).

Your post yesterday totally got to me, comma, comma, down dooby doo, down, down). I didn’t know if I was going to split a gut laughing or shed a tear for the nation.

Thank you and God bless you for your efforts on behalf of America.  Elton

Hello Elton, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comments. With that said, I would like to assure you that it is not now, ..nor has it ever been my intention to cause you or anyone bodily or emotional harm from my content.

Seriously, I do appreciate your participation as providing a venue for truth is extremely important to me, and to America. Chuck.

Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
