Is the election over?

Is the election over? 

    I was so looking forward to the election being over but to my surprise when I turned on the television it seemed as if the election campaigns were still going on. In the past couple weeks, I could not help but notice that the media was still going on about how the Democrats lost and how terrible the new president and his administration was. Now not really being in favor of one or the other it seems to raise certain questions that did not make sense.
  • The news media is supposed to be impartial and unbiased but how can you be reporting the real news if you openly support or oppose a candidate?
  • Is not the news media supposed to inform the public factually about events that take place and report those events as truthfully as possible without bias?
  • Can a news media be trusted if it is being openly biased about one candidate or another and if they are bias about their politics what other topics are they being bias about? Can we trust what they have to say when it comes to health, global warming, local news, world news etc.?
  • Is Pres. elect Trump right when he says we should not trust the media? 
  • If there is division within the country is it because of the politics or is it because of the media?
  • Who has more pool with the people of America, the media or the politicians?
  • Is the slogan "drain the swamp" indicative of our times and the real under line problem with America and the world?

Hillary Clinton and Dolores Umbridge

Is it just me or is it there is more than just a similarity between these two?

Is the universe trying to tell us something?
Or is it they just simply dress, talk and act alike?

Two Fallon, Nevada McDonald's were nearly forced to shut down after a new owner had to terminate 15 to 20 employees.

Why is citizenship so important?

    Recently I was made aware that two local McDonald's were sold and purchased by a gentlemen out of Reno Nevada who already owned several McDonald's. Upon completion of the transaction the two McDonald's located in Fallon Nevada were nearly shut down when the new owner was forced to immediately let go 15 to 20 employees. The reason for the terminations was quite simple, they could not provide proof of citizenship or a green card.

    So the questions are as as follows.

  1. Why hasn't anything been in the local news? Did I just simply miss it or was it hidden someplace in the back page?
  2. How could two McDonald's employ that many illegals without anyone finding out?
  3. What country these people were from does not matter and for all I know they came from Canada, but how much of an impact would that many employees have on our small local economy and is this the only business getting away with such practices?
  4. If they provided Social Security numbers to the previous owner, how many legal citizens got dinged on their tax return because of these illegals?
  5. These 15 to 20 people that are illegally in the country what happens to them? Did they get arrested or deported or did they just simply go find a new job?
  6. How many of them went on to collect unemployment or other social services or is that even possible?
  7. What was the incentive to the previous owner to hire that many illegals? Did he pay them less or did he simply turn a blind eye knowing that these employees would be less likely to file any kind of complaints against him for any employment violation?
  8. How can a law enforcement officer, enforce the law if he is forbidden to ask for proof of citizenship?
  9. What is the point in having a law if it is not going to be enforced?
  10. If the government is refusing to enforce a law, what is the benefit to the government?
    You really can't point fingers at the illegals without pointing another finger at the employer. There has to be an incentive to both parties. 
    In interviewing several people I was told there would be little to no consequence. The employer would deny having known that his employees were illegally in the country and the illegals will simply disappear once again into the background of our society. With no penalties being enforced there was nothing to discourage either party from breaking the law.

    It should be noted that in reporting this story, I was not looking for facts or details. This is not the first time such things have occurred in this country.The purpose of reporting the story was to simply raise questions that our society seems to be avoiding or complacent about. In order for a society to function properly there has to be law and order. Any law that is not enforced calls into question all the laws. After all the foundation of any good society is it's laws and justice system, without it we have nothing but chaos and some people thinking they are the exception to the law. And if one law is not enforced, how do you or I know any other law will be enforced equally and without prejudice?

Did the government get rid of death panels or did they simply replace them with high drug prices?

Life or Death, you choose 

    So the news media is reporting the recent 400% price increase for EpiPen's and implying that only greed is behind it. Congress is investigating it but God only knows how long that will take or if any action will ever be taken. But what I find most interesting of all is the fact that the news media are not asking the right questions once again.
    When Obama care was first being discussed one of the major tripping blocks that came up was the death panels. Doctors deciding whether or not you get medical treatment based on the quality of life. The debate about these death panels did not last very long and supposedly one of the things that was removed from Obama care.

    So here are the questions that I don't think are being asked:

  • Did the death panels get simply replaced by the pharmaceuticals?
  • Are the poor and lower-class citizens being singled out for extermination?
  • If you had to choose between food and an EpiPen and you were seriously allergic to certain foods which would you choose if you could only afford one or the other?
  • How many other drugs on the market have been raised as much as 1000% in the last eight years of Obama care?
  • How can you call Obama care affordable if you cannot afford to use it?
  • Are over-the-counter drugs such as Benadryl next in line for price hikes?
  • Is raising the price of a drug that your life depends on, tantamount to blackmail?
  • Wouldn't you think the insurance companies would be the first to scream about the high prices of drugs and why aren't they?
  • During the Holocaust the Germans stripped Jews and others of everything they owned including their clothing and then killed them. What is the difference between that and what our government is doing now?

    Wake up America, if you don't start thinking for yourselves, your libel to have someone in the government decide not only how you live, but whether you live at all.

How do you get change if you vote the way you always have?

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always be where you've always been." Samuel Clemens

Now this is a question about change and how everybody seems to want it, but everybody still votes the same. 
    My grandfather was one such person, he always voted Democratic no matter what. Yet at the same time he would bitch and gripe about how things never seem to change. The government is still corrupt, workers are still taken advantage of, and so on. Yet I still see the same old people playing the same old game they always have. You would think that in the past 200 years we would've learned our lesson and realize that the aristocrats are the only ones who are really playing the game. The rest of us who are actually only pawns in the game need to realize that our leaders have no qualms about sacrificing someone they consider expendable. 
   Over the last 50 years of my life I have realized that change is a good thing. As a child I didn't know what to expect and was extremely fearful of it. Later in life I began to realize that change was the only thing that gave me passion to move forward. And now later in life I have come to realize that it doesn't matter what the change is, so long as it's change. 
    A great general once said "That in the heat of battle should you find yourself in a stalemate, change is the only thing that will break it and it doesn't matter what it is, so long as you get a response from your enemy. Once your enemy responds to what you have done, then you will know what you need to do." 

  • So here's my questions: if you vote the way you always have, how can you expect things to change?
  • Are you voting the way you do because in all honesty your just a hypocrite? 
  • You want them to change the things you don't like and to leave the ones you do like, but are not willing to tell them which is which?
  • If you vote for the wrong guy, how will you know until after the election?
    So in this next election try something new. Close your eyes, push a button and hope for the best. You're still going to bitch about it no matter who gets voted into office.

What happen to the chemtrail's?

What happen to the chemtrail's?

So if your like me you pay attention to everything that goes on around you. And sometimes it's not what you see that is important but what you don't see. Over the past month or two if you have looked up into the skies you will notice that there have not been any chemtrail's. That's right the very thing that people say every aircraft at high altitude produces? I have had people tell me that seeing chemtrail's is normal, that they are just vapor trails . If that is the case where are they? If they were not spraying chemicals on us then we should still see these so-called vapor trails wouldn't you think? Should we be more worried that they stopped or that we no longer see these chemtrail's? Did they get tired of the media hype and switch to something else we can't see? Or are they getting ready to do something far more sinister than they were doing? If chemtrail's did not exist, if we were just seeing things, wouldn't we continue to be just seeing things?
And just because they have stopped, does that mean there is no evidence of their crime? Has anyone else noticed that your garden doesn't grow like it used to?
    These are all good questions but people should take notice of the things that they don't see just as much as they take notice of the things they do see, don't you think?

What is the one thing that would end war, crime, injustice and more, but little or no research is being done?


    What is the one thing that is responsible for every war, for every wrongful death or injury, for every racist remark, and the suffering of all humanity, for all of history
What negative emotion do we not only find in humans, but also primitive remanence of in animal's?
Our latest revelations of ego in humans is only the tip of the iceberg. My own personal research shows that the EGO's also exist in animals and animal social networks. It is a remnant of a primitive survival program in which humans have the mental capacity to overcome, either through meditation or just plain self-discipline.
    When people talk about The Shift, they are not necessarily talking about a physical event but rather an awakening to a realization that our entire history of suffering is the result of EGO. I'm not talking about living like Spock from Vulcan, but rather awakening enough to control or subdue the EGO. 
     It puzzles me that we would spend millions of dollars in research to stop addictions, and racism, or reduce crime rates but do no research into the root cause that affects everyone on the planet. And it frustrates me to no end to realize that our planet's very survival depends on us finding a way to overcome this ancient adversary. We are on the brink of live or die only because our collective ego has convinced us that weapons of mass destruction are necessary for our survival. Even that very statement is an oxymoron, but our ego manges to blind us to the real reality of what really is reality.
    I was once asked "if I had one wish what would it be for?" "My answer of course was world peace." I have never heard anyone answer that question and in the same breath give a solution, so I will be the first.


If you could end suffering for everyone on the planet for all time, what would it be worth?

How many things do you think could be ended or eliminated by controlling or eliminating the ego?

  • Lawyers
  • militaries
  • law enforcement
  • governments
  • government agencies
  • racism
  • violence
  • addictions [i.e. alcoholism, drug addiction, ect]
  • discrimination
  • ?

AR silver hammer band, Maxwell set free, all charges dropped.

Acme silver hammer company charged with murder.

    In headline news today Acme silver hammer company was brought up on charges of mass murder. There new line
of AR silver hammers has been banned and found to be the cause of all murders. Proponents of the new ban on hammers argued that there was no legitimate use for the AR silver hammers other than killing people. People do not need these kinds of hammers. 
    In related news a man by the name of Maxwell was released from prison today and all murder charges dropped after it was decided that the AR silver hammer was responsible for the murders and not Maxwell. Strangely enough hours after being released, Maxwell continued his murder spree with a large knife. Witnesses said, "The knife seemed to be wielding it self." Congress is now being pressured to considering banning knives in addition to hammers. A spokesperson for the group pushing for the band on knives was heard to say,  " Maxwell is not the problem, knives are!"

    The question should be obvious, but for those of you who are still blind to wag the dog.

If a person shoots and kills another person, what is responsible for the other person's death. The person who pulled the trigger or the weapon used?   If guns are banned, do these bad people simply disappear?   If bad people who are intent on harming others do not have access to guns does that mean they won't commit the crime or does it mean they will find another method? 

    In other countries where guns are banned does murder or mass shootings never occur? 

Places that practice meditation and other spiritual practices have crime rates far below normal. Not only for those who are practicing the meditation but also for the community. In addition those communities that practice a spiritual belief that does not promote violence as a solution to problems are rated the lowest in violent crimes. Is it possible that by treating the real problem (people) a solution that is agreeable to all is possible? Is it possible that treating mental health issues would result in fewer violent crimes rather than banning guns?

Is it possible that the real problem is EGO? Every single wrongful act, every war, every genocide, every murder, that has been carried out by another person or persons in all of history is the result of EGO?

What do you think should be the focus of our efforts to end violence in the world?

Awaken world, the shift is here, open your minds.

In today's news, tragedy strikes bunny family.

In today's news tragedy strikes bunny family.

   Bunny foo foo tragically shot dead after he was caught in the act of thumping field mice with a hammer. Seen here flipping off reporters, just minutes after killing more than 44 field mice with a hammer he bought over-the-counter. Unfortunately after he was shot dead by police it was later discovered that the hammer was to blame. The hammer manufacturer is now being sued for the tragic deaths of countless field mice. Congress is pushing to ban all hammers in an effort to curb violence.

What is the one thing that could reverse Global warming?

   What is the permanent solution to global warming?

    Boys and girls, let's take a little refresher course from grade school. What do plants breathe in and what do plants exhale? That's right plants breathe in CO2, which is causing global warming and they exhale or produce oxygen. So why hasn't the government or for that matter any government begun a program to re-forest the planet? A grove of bamboo or hemp can clean more CO2 out of the air, more efficiently than any man-made machine, and I am sure that with a little bit of research we could find other plants that do as much or more. A houseplant referred to as the spider plant, reportedly even has the ability to clean toxins out of the air. Many water plants grow even faster, yet mysteriously our government and our scientists are ignoring the one thing that has potential to solve our problem permanently, why? If our situation is as dire as they would have us believe then I would think they would be trying anything and everything that would be logically feasible,correct? Or is this another wag the dog and our government leaders have a whole different game plan in mind but were not included?

Why do we have headaches and migraines?

     Headaches are probably the number one most frustrating illness there is. I myself have spent countless hours with doctors and specialist, not to mention thousands of dollars. I have been scanned head to toe and yet when I ask the one question that everyone ask's, I get a blank look like deer in the headlights.
 So what is the one question that doctors can never answer? What is causing the headache and how can I cure it? What I usually get is," We really don't know, but we can try this or that." Like I or anyone else want to be guinea pigs for their pharmaceutical. Are they afraid that if they told me the cause, that I might go out and find my own cure?

Pizza Hut no longer adding antibiotics?

Pizza Hut is no longer going to add antibiotics and other chemicals to their pizza?

So Pizza Hut today was one of the first to announce and admit that they were going to stop using antibiotics and other chemicals in their pizzas in an effort to improve sales. So the real question comes down to this, if they didn't tell us before that they were using antibiotics and other things in their food product, and we didn't know it, how are we going to know if they've stopped using those products? If a food product never spoils, never diss-colors, never loses its flavor is it a safe product to consume ? When the almighty dollar takes precedent over food safety do these companies really know what the word ethics means?

Why are casino workers finger printed and bank workers not?

     If you want to work in a casino you have to have what is called a gaming card. You go to the local police station buy the card and get finger printed. But if you work in a bank there is no such thing, why? How would finger prints help catch a casino worker that is stealing? Casinos have 3 times the cameras that a bank has, and few casinos use finger prints as part of their security. I have been told that part of it is to identify possible organized crime and keep them out of casinos.If that is the case shouldn't we worry about banks too or are they already full of crooks and there is no point look for them in bank? Is there a hidden agenda behind singling out only part of the work force. Does the government think that only criminals work for casinos because they are low paying, non-skilled jobs? Isn't that profiling ?

Lahontan Reservoir, safe or unsafe?

Lahontan Reservoir 

safe or unsafe?

When reading this article, please keep in mind these are questions? They are questions that any concerned parent or person would have if they were living under similar conditions. And as far as I know there is not a law against asking questions. The article is not intended to imply anything about the Churchill County, Fallon, Nevada area. Although their should probably be a better explanation given to the public about heavy metal contamination, other than scientific reports that only someone with a degree can read or understand.

  Today I thought I would ask a few questions about a local matter. For many years now we have known that due to mercury contamination of the Carson River in Nevada, that the fish in 
Lahontan Reservoir are not safe to eat, correct? In my research concerning the contamination of mercury, I found the government information to be mainly concerned about the consumption of the fish from the reservoir. I did learn that the contamination is throughout the water system and that the Indian Lakes area has the higher concentrations of mercury. I found little if any information as to how this contamination affects agricultural crops, livestock, wildlife or people. I also found little information regarding other heavy metals and contaminants that would've resulted from the same mining operation that caused the mercury contamination.
     Many are using this irrigation water from the reservoir to water their crops and in some cases water their livestock, is that safe? If the fish are contaminated how is it that the cows drinking this water are not contaminated or the milk they produce? If hay fields are irrigated with water from the reservoir how is it that these agricultural fields are not contaminated as well?  Lahontan Reservoir is also used as a recreational area in which people use the reservoir for swimming boating and fishing.(With the understanding that the majority of the fish, are catch and release and not consumed.) EPA does not consider mercury to be a carcinogen but it is a well-known toxin that causes nerve damage and with enough exposure mercury can kill you. As for the wildlife, some of the game birds and other animals that feed on the fish are showing high levels of mercury, but for some reason there there dosn't seem to be a limit on the number of birds you eat like there is a limit on the fish, why is that?
    As a kid growing up in Fallon, Nevada I spent many a summer day swimming either in the canals or the lakes and reservoirs. To this day I still wonder how many of my health issues are the result of being exposed to this toxic substance. What is even more interesting is that fact that if you have your well water tested, Mercury, lead and other toxic heavy metals are not tested for unless you specifically request to have those test done, why is that? You would think that if you were living in an area that was prone to heavy metal contamination, that the government would want to know what the current levels are? Although, I have been told by some lawyers that the reason for this is deniability. In other words our local government may try and play dumb should a serious problem arise. They will simply say," I didn't know" and thus not be liable for anything.
    The Fallon area has been my home most of my life. It would be hard for me to think of living elsewhere, but don't you think we deserve the right to know what were dealing with? If we are being exposed to a toxic substance, do we not at the very least deserve the right to know what is killing us? And with all that said could we at least get someone to explain it to us in a simple non-scientific, non-legalese language so we don't have to hire an interpreter? After all how many of you actually trust our government to look out for our best interests?

Apple software not safe to use in nuclear power plants, life-support systems, and air traffic control

Apple license agreement, disclaimer.

So when was the last time that you took the time to read the license agreements posted by Apple software update. It just so happens I recently took the time to read the latest disclaimer and what I found within the disclaimer was actually in some ways frightening. Usually when a company makes a disclaimer they do so because they've had problems with people misusing their product in such a fashion. Things like, remove child from baby carriage before folding, soap capsules should not be taken internally and other things that most people would not need if they had common sense.
    And so when I began reading the disclaimer, I was amazed to find in the capitalized section a somewhat alarming disclaimer. Now after reading this, one has to ask several questions. Why did they feel the need to put everything in capitalized letters? Are they yelling or just trying to highlight something they thought was extremely important? How many nuclear power plants in the world are being operated with Apple software? Did a doctor decide to use an Apple iPod to resuscitate a patient? Did an air-traffic controller accidentally plug his iPod into the air traffic control system? And how often does the failure of Apple software lead to death, injury, severe physical damage, or environmental damage? And in what environment would you use Apple software that could result in environmental damage? When the lawyers wrote this document, were they standing too close to a nuclear reactor? 

So the next time you get an Apple software update, you might want to read the fine print or in this case capitalized sections of the license agreement.

Is a college degree worth it?

In 2008, I was told that technological advances were doubling every 18 months, and that it took institutions of education at least 10 years or more to catch up with those technological advances.
    I myself started college in 1977 in pursuit of a degree in computer science. Since that time I have had to change my degree at least three times due to technological advances. I have had to continue to go to school periodically just to keep up with those advances in technology, only to find that the colleges themselves are unable to keep up.
    In one particular year, I took a class in Adobe CS5. The computer lab at the college only had CS4 and as the class was being taught CS6 came out. The college could only afford to update its computers every three years. If I wanted to learn the current version of Adobe CS6 I would have to learn it myself online without accreditation.
My daughter's high school graduation.
    At this point in time technology is now doubling every three months, computer programs are only available in the cloud because they are being constantly updated and revised, and many of the college programs are simply being dropped because the colleges cannot afford to keep up. If you are graduating this year from college with a degree in technology or science, there's a good chance that the degree you just attained is outdated and you now owe several thousand dollars for an education that is obsolete. Although this may not apply to all fields of study it does beg the following questions.

  • With technology moving faster than ever before and at some point technology moving so fast that it will be impossible for anyone to attain a degree, why haven't colleges come up with a new system of education and certification? 
  • Donald Trump is being questioned about his college, but nobody is questioning the various universities across the country that are issuing degrees and diplomas in fields of study that are not current with technology, why?
  • If you go to school for 12 years but only get a sixth-grade education should you get your money back ?
  • If the college does not teach you what you need to know to enter the field of study that you've chosen, should you be allowed to sue that college?
  • Is it realistic to expect a student to repay his student loan if the education he received does not help him attain a higher paying job?
  • With universities unable to keep pace with technology, how long before industrialized nations are unable to attain the skilled workers they need?

Shiny highly visible UFOs ?

Highly visible shiny UFOs, really?

Your a civilization that's at least 8 to 10,000 years older than Earth's in order to get from their planet to this planet. Our jet fighters are painted to make them harder to spot in the sky, it's called camouflage, correct? And you want to tell me that a civilization that is barely 2000 years old has better technology than somebody from another world? The question isn't whether UFOs exist, the question is which planet are they from, ours or thier's? Your visiting an unknown world with a civilization that is capable of shooting you out of the sky and you have a choice between a bright shiny disc that everybody can see and a UFO that is at least camouflaged, if not cloaked, which one do you choose to visit Earth in? Now if you're an earth scientist who has stolen UFO technology your not likely to be concerned with what color it's painted, and more likely concerned with whether or not you can even get it to fly. 

So the next time you visit a planet inhabited by people who play video games like skeet shoot, don't you think you should at least use some camouflage paint? And if you wanted to be unnoticed when you fly, wouldn't you want your Aircraft to look like the other aircraft flying around?

Tobacco versus marijuana

Tobacco Versus Marijuana

    Tobacco is a known carcinogen and has been proven to be responsible for the death of millions. Although lawsuits have been brought against the tobacco companies and won, no one has been prosecuted for murder, or done jail time. The government refuses to outlaw something that they know for sure is responsible for the death of millions of people, but marijuana on the other hand has been made illegal and millions of people have gone to jail and done jail time for producing it and selling it. Understand the question is not whether marijuana should be legalized. The question is whether justice is truly blind and whether certain people and corporations are being allowed to get away with murder? Are the laws of this country being distributed justly and equally if both products are equally bad for you should not the law be applied equally? Shouldn't tobacco farmers and smoke shops and anyone connected with the production of tobacco be doing prison time? If slapping a label on a product that says that this product may be hazardous to your health and may be a carcinogen, shouldn't the growers, sellers and producers of marijuana also be given that loophole? 

America has the highest number of prisons and prison inmates. Is it possible that the reason this is so, is because the laws are not being equally administered?

Why do chemtrail's or vapor trails only appear on commercial flights?

Why do you not see a chemtrail or vapor trail from the military jet?

   I could be wrong but living next to a military base I see aircraft in the air all the time. But the question that keeps coming to mind is why do I only seem to see vapor trails coming from high-altitude commercial aircraft and the only time I see chemical or vapor trails coming from military aircraft is during an air show? The majority of the time when a military aircraft is flying overhead I have to strain my eyes in order to spot the aircraft. No chemtrail, no vapor trail and that would prompt the logical answer that military aircraft do not want to be seen. But the basic question that I have is why do these other aircraft have to be seen either? Why can't they fly without a vapor trail as well?

Why isn't the world you see, real?

What you see is an allusion?

    First let me explain that your eyes are like the lens of a camera. They simply filter and focus like the f-stop and other settings of the camera. Your brain takes what is received through the lens of the eyes and makes an interpretation of what it thinks the eyes are looking at. On top of that color is the biggest illusion of all. The white light that surrounds us is composed of all the colors we can imagine, each color resonating at its own wavelength. The white light strikes the Apple, but only the color of the Apple gets reflected back to the eyes. All the other colors are absorbed by the Apple.

So here's the question, if the Apple is nothing more than a reflective surface, what is the actual color?

If the color of the Apple was of a frequency beyond our perception, would the Apple be invisible?

What are the safest products on the market today?

So think about it.
Who gets to use the safest products on the market?

What products go through the most testing?

If we are so worried about unsafe consumer products, then why are we not buying more baby products? No dies, no perfumes, and nothing that would be harmful to a sensitive infant. Why aren't all products made with the same safety restrictions?

Are weevils evil?

Are weevils evil or a gift from God?

    Before you run screaming for your mommy and before you throw out your food consider the following. The United States is one of the few countries that considers eating insects a bad thing. If you travel to most Third World countries they are not only considered a good thing, but you may find them a main course in the meal. Finding weevils in your food is an indicator that your food has not been treated with chemicals and that your food is not likely a GMO, but the FDA has determined that adding insects or exceeding their limits is illegal, why? The FDA has determined that adding parasitic insects to grain in order to get rid of the weevils is illegal, but it's okay to treat that same food with pesticides that are known carcinogens, why? Weevils are not toxic and are higher in protein and have no fat content, why is that a bad thing? As a kid growing up in the 60s it was common to find insects in our cereal and other green products, what has changed since then? If we found weevils in the rice we simply poured the rice into a bowl of water and floated the weevils off or simply just went ahead, cooked the rice and ignored them being in the rice. Have you ever heard of anyone dying from eating a weevil? Science has determined that the production of protein for food consumption is more cost-effective and healthier if the protein comes from an insect. Have you ever heard of an animal rights activist being upset about the death of a weevil or an earthworm? Here is a food source that is highly efficient, has no hormones or antibiotics added, but because it's an insect nobody wants anything to do with it, why? But give somebody a box of crackers that has chemicals you cannot pronounce and people will eat the left and right. Is it possible that it is simply a matter of marketing?

So the next time you see a weevil or insect in your oatmeal consider this. If the weevil died from eating the oatmeal, should you be worried?

Poo? What Poo?

Yes it's poo, but before you run and hide read the question.

If your pee is a dark yellow. then you're not drinking enough water.
If your pee has a strong odor to it you may be dealing with an infection.
If you're poo floats your diet has too much fat content or that you have a high cholesterol diet.
But if you photograph or talk about your feces it is considered to be almost a sin or that you are a nut case, why? Farmers inspect and test animal feces on a regular basis to determine how healthy their farm animals are and whether they need to change their diet. Yet, it's difficult to get a human to have their urine or their fecal matter tested more than once a year, why? If you tell your wife to come look at your poo, the first thing you will hear is "Why do I want to look at your poo, it stinks?" Why should our pets and livestock be healthier, than we are? If your food is not digesting properly this can lead to health issues, but if you never look at what is coming out the other end of you, how will you ever know? If you see parasites in your dogs poo, you know your dog needs to be dewormed, but if you never look at yours how would you know if you had parasites?

Not too long ago, Japan came out with a toilet that is capable of not only washing, and cleaning you without the use of toilet paper, but is also capable of running medical tests on human urine, and excrement, and sending those test results to your doctor on a daily basis. Wouldn't this be a good idea or is it just TMI?

Would a dog make a better president?

How many times have you thought to yourself, a dog would make a better presidential candidate.

    Dogs are loyal and obedient which means you would have a president that put the people first and listened to what the people had to say. They are caring and forgiving, which means you would probably have better healthcare and more forgiveness on your taxes. They are extremely loyal and protective, which means our government would be there to protect the people, not special interests. With all the science and technology that we have, wouldn't it be possible to genetically cross our next president with a dog? Or do we dare and simply genetically design our next president? And if that should work out as well as I think it should, why stop there when you have a whole Congress and Senate that doesn't seem to listen to the people anymore? I mean, wouldn't it at the very least be entertaining watching all of Congress sniff each other's butt?

Who else thinks that we should just simply design our leaders the way we want, so we can have the world we want?

If the United States exports dropped 25%, would you say we were in trouble?

Today China reported that their exports dropped 25%.

If any country's exports dropped 25% wouldn't you say that they were in serious trouble? News networks are trying to tell us this is no big deal, why? The news media is trying to put various spins on this news to make it look as if the reason for the drop is because China is moving to a service-oriented economy.But their imports dropped as well and although it was not as significant it was an additional indicator that China isn't doing as well as everybody thinks. China sells to the world, so wouldn't this be an indicator that the world economy is in trouble, serious trouble? Doesn't it seem strange that the stock markets are not taking it as serious news? How much of a train wreck do you have to have before the world markets react? Or should we trust the news media and the governments when they say it's no big deal? Or maybe we should take the color red in the Chinese flag to be an ominous warning of what is to come?

Why would aliens come here to this planet?

Why would aliens come here to this planet?

Why would aliens come to a planet that is so full of violence, deception, corruption, and indifference? The outward appearance of this planet would appear to be an insane asylum where you could not trust anyone or anything. If you came here and contacted any government could you make any kind of an agreement that you could trust? Could you trust any government or people to keep their word about any agreement? Could you come to this planet and contact any government without being dissected and all your technology being stolen? Is it possible that the only reason that any alien civilization would come here, is to make sure that our insanity does not spread beyond our own planet? If an alien civilization came here to take over our planet, would it not be just a simple matter of introducing a virus that we could not fight? Can you trust what the media and the movies present aliens as being? If aliens were hostile and had the ability to travel light years to other planets in other solar systems, wouldn't they have similar technology with their weapons? The US possesses neutron bombs that are capable of eradicating all life without doing damage to structures or infrastructure. Do you think aliens wouldn't have this type of technology as well? And if you were going to spend the time and money to visit another planet why would you go there with the intent of destroying it before you had a chance to study it?

Donald Trump?

Caution: before you run off at the mouth about how bad Donald Trump is read the questions first.

Regardless of whether you are Republican, or Democrat, independent, or tea party, you have to admit there are a great many odd things happening in this election that don't quite add up.

Donald Trump appears to be two thirds ahead of all the other Republican candidates, which makes him the clear majority leader. So why would the Republican Party want to eliminate two thirds of their potential voters? The Republican Party over the last couple of decades has been moving toward the middle because it wasn't getting the votes. Claiming that it wanted to be more tolerant of gays, other religions, and more ethnically diverse. Along comes Donald Trump and all of a sudden the Republican Party is all about how Christian you are, why is that? The Pope comes out and says that he doesn't think Trump is a Christian , but the question everybody should be asking is when was the last time a pope spoke out about someone in an American election? One voter survey came out and said the majority of people were voting for Trump because he was not a career politician, and was promising change, not that he was a Christian, so why would you ignore a survey like that if you want more votes? A day before super Tuesday the KKK endorses Donald Trump and Whoopi Goldberg is all over that (and I don't blame her ) as if it were the end of the world because he did not strongly denounce the endorsement. Is it possible that Donald Trump did not want to give the KKK any free advertising ?  The KKK is a small group yet oddly their support came the day before super Tuesday, so the real question is who controls their leash? Is it possible that the people who hate Trump the most, are the people that are worried the most about their cushy overpaid corrupt jobs? As a businessman I would think he would be most focused on corruption and waste, so wouldn't those people responsible for that corruption and waste be the ones yelling the loudest that he shouldn't be president? Mitt Romney comes out against Trump yet when he was running for president he was trying to get Trump to support him, doesn't that sound a little odd?
     In the many years that I worked for I had several opportunities to talk with Jeff Bezos, and when I asked him about negative publicity he said " There is no such thing as negative publicity." I asked Mr.Bezos  about a negative news story about and why he didn't think that that was going to hurt the company. Mr. Bezos said" the negativity will be remembered for only a couple of weeks, but the name would be heard around the world and you can't buy advertising like that." So if the media really wanted Donald Trump to stop getting so much attention, shouldn't the networks stop giving it to him? Doesn't this all sounds a little bit like "Wag The Dog"?
    It was mentioned that both Ben Carson and Donald Trump do not have international experience, but if you're running a company and you don't know how to do something wouldn't you hire someone who did? When was the last time you heard of a corporate executive being required or able to do every job in his company? Is international experience a legitimate prereiquite of the job?
    Isn't it interesting that the most outstanding candidates seem to be the ones that are not career politicians?
    I have always believed that perfection is a human concept and I have yet to see a politician, or person for that matter, of any kind live up to to the standard of perfection. Wouldn't it be nice to have an election where there are no parties and no divisions were a person is elected to office not because of his party affiliation but because he's qualified for the job?

   And the ultimate question is; If you go for a job interview your employer does not have the right to ask you your political, religious, sexual orientation, or ethnic background why is it okay to ask a political candidate?

Why does it take a degree to be recognized as knowing something?

Is a degree really needed?

Throughout history we have seen many examples of successful people and famous people that didn't have a degree, diploma or conventional education. People like Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, and so on made some of the most important contributions to science and tech. But if you put on a job application that you didn't complete college or that you were homeschooled you immediately become suspect. Currently college education has become so cost prohibitive that you may never recoup the expense even if you do find a job for which you were trained. In times past an apprenticeship was considered to be far more valuable and more beneficial. Even in my time trade schools were a cost-effective alternative to college. But what it really comes down to is a question that I have asked many times. When a Engineer posts a degree on the wall it does not say that he was a C student, or B student, or A student it simply says that he has a degree, why is that? If I go to a community college instead of a prestigious college like Stanford college, why is what I learned less than if I had gone to Stanford College if they taught the same thing? Why is it if I study books in a library on computer programming it doesn't mean anything, but if I go to a college and pay thousands of dollars to learn from the same books that were in the library, then I know something? In addition if I have the diploma I am supposed to get greater pay for what I learned, but the company I start with will still put me in an entry-level job position, what was the point in going to school in the first place?

Why are we still using a redundant, outdated, Neanderthal educational system that is overpriced, and can't keep up with the advancement of technology?

If we can land a man on the moon using slide rules don't you think we could at least come up with an educational system that is affordable to all and takes into account what you already know or learned on your own and is equally accredited with any other college?

What is death?

Why do we fear death when we don't even know what it is?
Typically death is when a living organism is no longer functioning, decays and is recycled back into his basic components. Yet we still hear stories of people coming back from the dead and describing places and things that they should not be able to. We also hear people recount past lives and yet we still insist on allowing religious and scientific dogma to get away with not really answering the question. Is death the end, and if so how is anyone able to come back and describe places they've never been, people they've never met, and conversations that they should not have been able to hear? Science conveniently explains it away as latent electrical activity or just reflexes and religion refuses to even take up the question, yet Christ supposedly rose from the dead. Is it possible that were all just holograms in a computer simulation? A computer program explain a great deal of what is experienced in death? Rising from the dead would be simply resurrecting a character like in a videogame. Wouldn't it be nice to know that nobody ever really dies, but instead is saved into memory for another game in another world? Is it possible that science doesn't spend a great deal of time on the subject because it has no way of reaching an ethereal reality composed of computer programs or do they simply fear ridicule from religion for once again playing God? Maybe it is not a matter of playing God, but simply figuring out how to place a phone call to the creator of the game? 

"Could you please return my friends and family to the game, so we can continue to play the game?" "I miss them dearly."

Does evolution come from staying the same?

If life does not evolve, how would life improve? If dogs, cats, cows, horses and other animals did not evolve, how is there more than one breed? If life does not evolve and adapt does that not mean there is a set number of species and once those species become extinct there will never be anything to replace the species that become extinct and therefore would we not sooner or later run out of animals and plants? If you're an omnipotent being (God) creating worlds, wouldn't you want them to be self-sustaining so you didn't have to constantly re-create life? If new life were to stop being created, wouldn't you think there was something wrong with the creator? If evolution was not taking place and every creature were the result of surviving the great flood on an arc, and there are billions of different animals and lifeforms, how big would the ark have to have been?

If the creator does not believe in evolution, what does he have against it, or if the creator created evolution what do humans have against evolution? 

If we are to survive it will not be because we continue to do the same things we have always done, but because we broke the rules and at the very least evolved our thinking. P.S. evolution does not disprove God, it reaffirms the creator.

Chicken bones should never be fed the dogs, why?

Why are chicken bones unsafe for animals?
(Disclaimer; this is not a recommendation that you feed chicken bones to your pet. It is simply a question that you must answer for yourself!)
 Wild dogs, coyotes and other predators eat chickens and other birds on a regular basis, but we've been told that if you feed chicken bones to your dog they can choke to death on the bones. If this is the case, then how come we do not see the dead bodies of dogs coyotes and other predators strewn across the land from having eaten chicken bones or bird bones? Is it because cooked bones are brittle and raw bones are soft and flexible? What about the fact that raw meat can be dangerous to eat because of things like salmonella and other possible food poisoning. Coyotes and other wild dogs eat dead carcasses on a regular basis, why don't we see dead bodies everywhere? Is it possible that the perception of our world is not what we think it is?

One pill or two pills?

One pill, two pill, three pills, or the bottle?

I had a headache and the aspirin bottle gave instructions of 1 to 2 pills for adults. I looked at a package of pills for my dog and it said based on weight give this dosage. Now both people above are adults but one is nearly 6'8" and the other is only 5'6". So is one person going to be under medicated and the other over medicated? This is a prescribed dosage set by the FDA, so can you trust what the FDA says? What else did they get wrong? If the dosage is so general, do we really need the pills in the first place? Are our pets getting better medication than we are? Is everything an illusion?

Are placebos the miracle drug we've been looking for?

If placebos work as well as they say, why do we need drugs?

The key to a placebo is how it is presented and how believable the presentation is (I. E. How good are the actors administering the placebo? In other words if the mind believes that it is being given a pill to kill pain then that is what happens. Placebos work 60% of the time or better, but even these results can be questioned. The doctors and scientists responsible for the testing of placebos are some of same doctors that test pharmaceutical drugs. So are test results going to lean towards a drug that doesn't make them any money or towards pharmaceutical drugs that makes them billions?
    I have met people that have never used an over-the-counter painkiller in their life and will tell you they've never needed it, why is that? These people are generally from third world economies where over-the-counter medications are not necessarily readily available. Is the food they eat, the reason they do not need painkillers or is it a cultural thing that is taught to them?
    Doctors give placebos on a regular basis to patients asking for illegal painkillers they don't need, and strangely enough you never hear of a patient suing a doctor for being given a sugar pill.
    Studies have also shown that placebos given in place of antidepressants can work just as well as pharmaceutical drugs, but what you won't hear is that the placebos had no ill side effects, why is that? At the same time if the placebo is presented to the patient with a list of possible side effects, strangely enough those side effects will appear. Does that mean that we should stop listing side bad effects. I'm sure that pharmaceuticals would love to be able to produce pills they do not have to be accountable for.
     It would seem that the mind is capable of manufacturing any drug or chemical that it thinks it needs. In fact if you take pain pills on a regular basis for headaches and then stopped taking the pills the mind will literally create a headache (rebound headaches ) in order to get its fix of painkiller.
 So if placebos work 60% of the time, could we cure 60% of the world with a placebo pill? Would drug dealers be more selling a placebo and get less complaints about their illegal drugs? If a person is given a placebo and told that it is an illegal drug would it show up in a drug test?

    Here is the best question of all, if a patient is given a placebo pill and told that it is poison would they die from it?

What is the one question that is never asked?

What is the one question that is never asked?

What are we?

Why do we not ask what we are, but instead ask what is our purpose? How can you answer the question what is our purpose, without knowing what you are first? It's like asking what's the purpose of a wigglewatt? Can you tell me what the purpose of a Wigglewatt is without knowing what it is first? Science has not defined what we are and what's more ever since quantum physics the question what is real and what is not can't even be answered. Are we asking the right questions in the right order? Can we really define what a galaxy is, much less what it's for?

Zika virus, what is it really doing?

Zika virus, what is it really doing?

If the Zika virus is causing defects in human infants, what is it doing to the wildlife and domestic livestock? Is it possible that a similar virus caused not a defect, but an evolutionary mutation? Could a similar virus have caused the extinction of species? Is it possible that these viruses have been around for millions of years?

Why were the holidays invented?

Why were the holidays invented?

Why do we need to be reminded that we need to let our loved ones know that we love them? Why do we limit I love you too one day a year? Shouldn't we be showing our love for one another all the time? And all those other holidays that only happen once a year, shouldn't they also be celebrated year-round.Why are all the holidays depended on how much money we spend? Thanksgiving is forgiving gratitude, but why should we be grateful only at Thanksgiving? Shouldn't generosity and peace on earth be celebrated not just in December? We have so many holidays now that you cannot create a new one without getting rid of an old one, why?

Is there such a thing as an overweight astronaut?

Is there such a thing as an overweight astronaut?

If you're overweight on earth, and then you moved to the space station are you still overweight? 
Is it possible that like many things it depends on where you are observing the question from?
If you are in space and you are weightless does obesity still matter?
Will only skinny people be allowed in space?

If planting an acre of hemp could save 1000 trees, why would you outlaw it?

If planting an acre of hemp could save 1000 trees, why would you outlaw it?

Keep in mind that hemp is not the same as cannabis, same family different plant. Hemp has thousands of uses and is used to make everything from paper, food, clothing and even plastics. Has low to no THC if any, so it can't be used as a drug. Paper pulp made from hemp can be recycled 10 times more than wood pulp and can out produce cotton. Finished products can be sold here in the US, which includes hemp seeds but it can't be grown here. Hemp seed can be made into milk, flour, protein powder etc. the amount of THC is negligible. The US is so fanatical about saving the environment, but is so adamant about not letting any type of hemp be grown in the United States, why? Does that make the US government hypocritical, or does it just mean there on the take from major corporations? What US companies have been pushing to keep hemp in the same category as cannabis, when they clearly know that these are two different plants? Our first flags and our Constitution and Declaration of Independence were written on paper made not from wood pulp, but from hemp. Did our founding fathers know something we don't, or were they just less corrupt?

Artificial sweeteners, safe or unsafe?

    In the 1970s saccharin was found to be unsafe for human consumption as research studies indicated that it caused cancer in lab rats. I remember that the initial response was the FDA banning the product product from store shelves, but that idea was rescinded with the argument that there was no alternative for diabetics to use at the time. So it was kept on the shelves but every product containing saccharin was required to have a warning label letting people know that it may cause cancer. In 2000 warning labels were removed because supposedly cancer was only found in laboratory mice or rats because their biology was slightly different.
If there is a difference between the biology of the rats and humans, shouldn't there be questions about all other products that were tested using this method? Why are food products tested by the manufacturer and not an independent laboratory? Mice and rats are used for testing food and drugs because their biology is similar to ours, but if this is not the case then how can we trust anything that the FDA has to say? If this same method is used to test other artificial sweeteners, are exemptions being made for these products as well? If a product is found to be carcinogenic but can still be sold so long as it has a warning label on it, does that mean mass murder is okay so long as you have a warning label? Euthanasia is considered to be illegal in this country, but it's okay to buy a product that will kill you?
