Places We Read with a Rant
Over the last few years, we have picked up some sites, blogs, websites, that we enjoy reading. There are a few that over time have faded away. We thought we’d share with you some that we find enjoyable. Maybe enjoyable is not the right word, because some of the things we read are very disturbing. Some of these sites have new recipes, for the most part, these are enjoyable, unless of course it involves cauliflower. Living in the land of the free and the home of the brave, I do not have to eat cauliflower. I remember the older Bush president stating one day, “I am President of the United States, and if I don’t want to eat broccoli, I don’t have to.” Well, I will eat broccoli, if Fern makes me, but I have drawn a line in the mud about cauliflower.
Getting back reasonably close to what we’re talking about here, some of the sites we read are by no means enjoyable, they display the events that are happening in our world, that I would like to believe are a relative rendition of the truth. Speaking of the truth, or lack thereof, I am astounded by the behavior of not only the ‘mainstream’ media, but the sub-mainstream media and the unbelievable perversion and distortion of the truth. An example. This morning President Trump tweeted that Senator Chuck Schumer is already criticizing his State of the Union speech, and Senator Schumer has not read the speech yet. I’m not picking on the Senator here, this is just an example of the way the news is betrayed in our country.
Now, I’m not making reference here to a natural disaster, or the tragedy, of let’s
say, a plane crash. The mainstream news media gives a relatively honest depiction of what happens during these types of events. Or, they do initially anyway. When the blame game starts about why things happen, the news media gets lost in it’s feeding frenzy of filth, always trying to blame somebody for something. It appears the mainstream news media has an agenda which involves obvious destruction of the decent values that most Americans cherish and hold dear. Maybe I shouldn’t have had that extra cup of coffee this morning.
Fern put out an article recently called Unbelievable. I find the news media to fall in that category. Let’s break the word down. UN-believable. So, what is their true agenda? What do you think is their
agenda? Do you think there is a way to change this? I’ll go ahead and say it now, I believe in God and a Higher Power, but besides God, is there a way to stop this decay? Are we going to have to hit total bottom before this thing can be restructured? Have we crossed the line of no return where there is no recovery? And do most people even have a clue what is happening around them?
Let’s get a grip of reality here. When a college professor in a New York Times article states that ‘Mary Poppins is racist’ because she has soot or dirt on her face from coming out of a chimney, and the majority of her face is not covered in dirt or soot, just small patches. This person obviously has some type of destructive agenda. I cannot believe that anyone of reasonable intelligence would imagine this scenario to be racist. It doesn’t make any difference who they are, how can anybody of normal intelligence see this as racist????
In my own humble opinion, I don’t think we can recover. Yes, this
is doom and gloom, call it what it is. Let’s call it reality. I do not think this divide can be conquered, therefore, things are going to get real nasty. I would guess that tonight at the State of the Union address, there are going to be disruptions. So, let’s wait and see.
Moving on. Below is a list of sites that we currently read. Most of them are of an adult type nature. Some use language that people may find distasteful or offensive. Others, the content area maybe a little heavy for people to find palatable. Some deal with recipes. Some deal with life and death. We’ll give a brief description of each one. There are sites that we don’t read as often anymore. Sometimes people just grow apart for various reasons.
You ready? Here goes. These are in no particular order, by the way. Let’s just start with a list.
This is where we go for our mainstream news. Some of it is questionable, but of the mainstream news, I enjoy this site the best.
Drudge is a good source for mainstream news. Some of it is also questionable.
A relatively honest site, but has some questionable stories also.
Donald Trump Twitter
It is what it is.
Fern reads this one to see a different perspective on some of the news.
Western Rifle Shooters
Adult content. One of my favorites. Some stories can be real hard and very graphic. Viewer discretion advised. My favorite site.
A lot of financial news and some other just what’s happening.
Adult content. Language on occasion is salty. Fern reads this to me every morning. A different level of analysis that we enjoy. Also one of my favorite reads. Again, adult content.
Ol’ Remus is a weekly. Late Monday night or Tuesday morning. Quality content. A first class read.
Homesteading blog. Good information. Fern has enjoyed reading Patrice for years.
5 Acres & A Dream
Another homesteading blog. Leigh is an author and is very enjoyable to read. She and her husband work hard at being self-sufficient.
Vicki lives in an apartment and still tries to prepare for what’s coming. She has some interesting perspectives Fern enjoys.
Confessions of a Crazed Cattlewoman
Fiona and Ralph have a homestead and occasionally share their adventures.
Articles about home safety, shooting. Adult content. Always proper. Some good advice.
The Z Blog
A different perspective from a higher thinking level about events happening around us.
The Burning Platform
News stories, various topics.
I use this site for radio information. He has other information from a military type perspective.
These are just some of the sites that we read, and there are probably some that we’ve missed. That happens when you get old. If you have some favorite sites, please share. If you find some of these to be offensive, I genuinely apologize. I don’t expect everyone to like what I like. I hope you find something here that you enjoy. Please share, really, sites that you like whether it’s recipes or news, and we’ll all take a look.
We’ll talk more later, Frank
