On Presidents

The Lighter Side of the Heavy Stuff.

Trump is the worst president ever!  Remember the days of President Obama?  Just look at some of the positive accomplishments of THAT president.  As you are going over them, see if you can think of even a SINGLE positive accomplishment of the current president.  Is there even one that you can think of?

On Racism and Criminal Justice:

– signed the groundbreaking First Step Act, a criminal justice bill which enacted reforms that make our justice system fairer and help former inmates successfully return to society.

– The First Step Act’s reforms addressed inequities in sentencing laws that disproportionately harmed Black Americans and reformed mandatory minimums that created unfair outcomes.

– The First Step Act expanded judicial discretion in sentencing of non-violent crimes.

– Over 90% of those benefitting from the retroactive sentencing reductions in the First Step Act are Black Americans.

– The First Step Act provides rehabilitative programs…

Where Did This Notion of DEFUNDING the Police Come From? Lies.

The Lighter Side of the Heavy Stuff.

Ever wonder why people believe things that are utterly false? It LIES deep in the recesses of their minds…. and it was put there.

I’ve been interviewing people about their views on police shooting unarmed black men in America.  One of the questions I always ask is “What percent of the 1,000 police shootings every year are UNARMED black men?”  The answer varies… a LOT.  But most people think it is at least 30% and some upwards of 80%.  Did you know that the ACTUAL answer is about 2%?  And in 2019 it fell BELOW 1%?  THIS represents a HUGE disconnect between reality and people’s perception of reality.  Don’t believe me? Go look it up. In 2019 there were 9 unarmed black men killed by police. If you take 9 out of 1004 police killings that is less than 1%. Even if you were to use the inflated numbers from…

Quotes – The Trouble with…

The trouble with the straight and narrow path – is that it runs through such desolate territory.

The trouble with experience – is that it usually teaches you something you really didn’t want to know.

The Lie that Police Kill Unarmed Black men Frequently and Disproportionately Does not Help Black People… It Hurts Black People.

The Lighter Side of the Heavy Stuff.

Nothing is more effective at controlling a group of people than a campaign of terror. When white LEFTISTS on TV or in your classroom state the LIE that 33% of all police shootings are done to UNARMED BLACK PEOPLE when in fact it was 2%??? Do you know what this does to black people? Terrifies them. I’d be terrified too if the majority group in society told me over and over that the cops were out to kill me because I don’t look like that majority group. Never mind that the chances of this fate for black people is about 1 in 4 million. Don’t believe me? Even the watchdog group, MappingPoliceViolence puts it at 4% and they have exaggerated, check into it. Do you know what it does to the white leftists who TELL this lie? Makes them feel virtuous…. Makes them feel virtuous and gives them TREMENDOUS POWER…

Quote of the Week – Perception.

A person whose house is only open on the west, can’t see the sun rise at dawn;

it’s only seen when the sun sets at dusk.

If one tries to compare the colour and appearance of the two,

one will go on arguing forever.

The fault lies not with the vision, but with the closed windows.

If you look out of only one opening till the day you die,

you’ll never see anything new.
