I Won’t Hide

I won’t hide.

I’ve recently dropped a lot of things. Facebook and Facebook messenger have been deleted from my phone. I’m tired of their censorship. They came for a lot of Conservatives very quickly. (Although, I am now seeing that they’re coming for the Left as well.)


Amazon Web Services shut Parler out. No a conservative website but one of free speech. Okay. They can do that I suppose. But I don’t have to give them my money anymore. Amazon Prime/Video isn’t welcome in our home.


I haven’t considered myself a part of the Right for some time. I’ve been pushed to the middle but I don’t consider myself a Libertarian.

I have considered myself a man “without a country” politically speaking for quite some time. Although I have voted conservative. Why? Because the Left keeps pushing more radical people into office.


It’s the first month of 2021. And I literally feel like a man without a country.

We are being destroyed from within.
D. C. is locked down with armed troops. Fences are installed around the Capitol building. I’ve visited there several times and what I’m seeing now is unrecognizable.


We are not America anymore. Not the United States.


This is Newmerica.


I have also being degooglefying my phone (new word?).

Gmail and Google Photos are still there. I have to figure out how to download all my photos. Gmail isn’t a problem. I don’t use email that much, so not that big a deal to me.

I just don’t know where to go. I would rather have a phone that doesn’t connect and be monitored by everyone.

I’m not a paranoid person but I know that things are being used against us in the guise of being helpful.

Yesterday I got in the car and looked at the gas gauge and said out loud, β€œYep. I need gas.” I hit the Apple Maps app on my phone and there were directions to the gas station I use all the time in town.

All I wanted to do was go get a haircut.

That is just strange, that is someone listening. Or some thing, rather.


I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for quite some time.

I did one episode of a podcast with one friend and seven or eight spiders with two other friends. It was a good time but didn’t work at time wise so I’m going at it alone. If there are any of my friends reading or listening to this I’d be glad to have ya. I’d like to have a conversation with several of you.


Like I said, I’m not paranoid. I just…I’m living in a world where if I’m not with you I’m against you.

And that’s not how it is.

I’m with my family and friends. I’m gonna watch out for them. As a Christian I feel for everyone’s problems and plights. But, you can’t save everybody.

That’s just the way the world is.

I’m just trying to make it out here.

That’s it. That’s the post.

So this is the podcast version of this over on Anchor. It’s free and I can put a little something out there while I get my bearings. Don’t have high expectations going in and I promise you will not be disappointed.

Show Me Your Papers…

I responded to a Facebook post today about our county recycling centers and the fact that they now want you to show your identification there to prove you’re a resident of our county.

I’m against it.

Why? Because we live in a country where we shouldn’t have to do this.

As it stands we already show our ID to buy alcohol, cigarettes, start a bank account, get a loan, drive a car (the main reason for that ID), purchase a firearm (which is your right as an American citizen) and so many other things.

Why should I have to show ID to throw my garbage out at the dump, but not have to show my ID at the voting booth? And we all know that’s where we really need to take out the garbage. (Thanks to my friend Diane for that one, made me laugh and think on the subject.)

To me it’s the small things, like this, that sneak in.

The water that drips on that one spot until it’s a crack.

Then that weakened spot where the crack has formed becomes larger and larger until the roof caves in or the wall falls.

And then the whole thing is a mess and you have to start from scratch.

Maintaining your freedoms is a lot like taking care of anything else.

You have to put the work in. You have to keep an eye on things.

You have to care.
