Blogging My Politics
1am - Pussyfooting
For many years [20+], I strongly believed that I should NOT argue politically with my friends. Also, I only rarely wrote politically here on my Blog.
Bill Moyers, an American journalist and political commentator [A democrat] wrote in his blog [in part]:
"Citizens of a free society do not preserve their freedom by pussyfooting around their fellow citizens’ opinions, even their most cherished beliefs."
I have come full circle from not talking about political stuff at all to agreeing with Bill Moyers completely!
I define myself as a politically independent person. For example: I support the American Civil Liberties Union [ACLU] with donations because of ACLU's defense of persons oppressed by our government, the legal system and the prison system et al. Also, I agree with some of ACLU's politics such as their criticism of both Obama and Trump.
However, I am often against the ACLU. This happened when the ACLU came out against the curtailment of free speech at university protests. The ACLU supported freedom of speech of a group of protesters while the goal of that same group of protesters was to stop persons from speaking.
ACLU support of anti-Israel persons who disrupt speakers invited by universities to address the student body.
Support of and then against Obama
On the day after Obama announced for the presidency, right here on my Blog I endorsed him. Click [here] to view that Blog post.
However, my position changed during Obama's first world trip, when he presented a speech in Cairo which he titled: "A New Beginning" on 04 June 2009.
At Cairo, Obama's call for peace between Israel and Palestinians showed me that he speaks authoritatively about subjects of which he has no personal knowledge. The same thing applies with Obama being against Israel in occupying what the world calls "settlements" which are in fact cities within the borders of Israel. Obama has no personal knowledge about this either. He simply believes what he is told instead of finding out the truth himself.
Palestinians describe the place where they live inside Israel as a city or town. But those same Palestinians describe the place where some Israelis live as settlements [Illegally occupied settlements].
This re-definition stuff is a big part of the Palestinian propaganda scheme. And the World has believed that propaganda because these lies repeated over and over become changed into truth.
These are some of my reasons for coming out here in my Blog with my political stance. I am neither a conservative or liberal. I am not a Democrat or
I am a free-thinker who will not allow himself to adopt a position of being politically dug-in and entrenched so that my views do not change regardless what happens.
10am - Little Honda's storage cabinets
I am planning to replace the cabinets in Little Honda's rear storage area. Those plastic cabinets purchased at WalMart are not sized for best use of the space.
I will design and build these cabinets myself. They will be made of plywood and use full-extension slide drawers.
1:30pm - 24 Hour Fitness
I have felt sooooo good lately, that I now go to workout at 24 Hour Fitness every other day!
Which comes first:
- Does feeling good lead to going to 24 Hour Fitness every other day?
- Does going to 24 Hour fitness lead to feeling good which then leads to going every other day?
I don't which it is? But I will write this:
- My lower back has stopped hurting
- I no longer struggle opening a sealed bottle of jam
- I'm sooooo relaxed
My 24 Hour Fitness routine consists of:
- 30 minutes treadmill to reach a heart rate of 105 beats/minute
- 30 minutes training on machines to exercise every muscle group
- 20 minutes [more or less] shower and soak in spa
