Facebook and Nazis in the News...

it's not completely clear which is which.

Over the past weeks the number of articles attacking the tactics of Facebook are springing up everywhere.

There is no doubt that Facecrap can become a dangerous time sink - stealing from us the only real thing we possess - our time.

How many books are not being written, paintings conceived of and executed, books not being read, children not being attended by their parents, and relationships destroyed by the constant need to "just check Facecrap for a minute?"  We all know that minute turns easily into a hour or two.

Here's just what I ran into this morning:

Facebook shares slide after reports of data misuse

Facebook may have broken FTC deal in Cambridge Analytica incident

Facebook apologizes for search suggestions of child pornography videos

Was Trump Elected Because of Cambridge Analytica Facecrap Data Mining?

The art of propaganda was conceived of when Satan convinced Eve that eating the forbidden fruit would give her access to all the knowledge of the universe.

Somewhere over the years we started calling it advertising.

Does anyone still believe that the purpose of advertising is nothing more than telling you about the wonders of a product without utilizing polls, questionnaires, and human psychology?

The difference today is it's done at the speed of light.

The only thing people are upset about what Cambridge Analytica did is because it may have benefited the Trump campaign.  You see if the opposition research is done for the benefit of the left, it's A-okay.  

Obama practically had an office set up at the Facecrap headquarters, but that's been buried by the dishonest, lying, venomous, skewed MSM.

I have a Facecrap account and fully understand that they collect my data.  However, I am presently worried about the time I waste looking at things that are of no use to me.  Using it for keeping up with local events is important to me.  

I also link my posts in an effort to reach a few more people.  There is also not one teeny doubt in my mind that Facecrap has started to shadow ban my posts. 

I have decided to severely limit the time I waste on Facecrap.  If I can't honor my decision, I will delete my account.

So How About the Nazis?

From Frontpage Magazine:

Neo-Nazis on Campus
The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s bold new campaign to expose the rampant anti-Semitism and dangerous, genocidal rhetoric of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and their student supporters across the nation is officially underway.
The campuses of four California universities –UC BerkeleySan Francisco State University, UCLA, and USC— have already been blanketed with hard-hitting, fact-based posters that detail the virulent Jew-hatred of these activists and the neo-Nazi-sympathizing professors who try to grant them moral authority. read the rest
And from World Net Daily:

Grassroots Effort that "Defeated Evil Empire" Rekindled
Half a century ago, the leaders of a synagogue in Cleveland erected a banner in front of their building to call attention to Jews who were being persecuted by the communist Soviet Union. 
They couldn’t have imagined at the time that they were launching a movement that went even beyond saving the Jews they cared about: It helped bring down the entire Soviet Union. 
One observer, noting how the grassroots effort led to legislation that put economic pressure on the Soviet Union – a tactic emulated and expanded by President Reagan – summarized the story this way: “A few people with signs led to the destruction of an empire.” 
That’s the inspiration behind a new effort by a growing coalition of activist groups called Save the Persecuted Christians. read the rest
 This is an important point for you to consider:

When we speak about Nazis, Marxists, Fascists, Bolsheviks, SJW's, liberals, progressives, and feminists - to name just a few, we are talking about only one thing:


the desire by a group of people to create utopia on earth and willing to cram it down your throat by force if necessary.


Because they have no concept of the true meaning of freedom.

Outrage About that New Yorker Mag's Cover Picture of a Trump...

has nothing to do with an unlovely depiction of the president.

The artist, Barry Blitt, makes his living by drawing unlovely caricatures of important people.  Upon viewing the image I immediately dumped it in the "who gives a sh*t' file.

Yet a number of people are outraged.


Because, dear friends, it's fat shaming.  That's right.  It the latest crazy SJW assault on our senses and intelligence that claims being fat is not only okay, it may even be perceived as beautiful.

We are now assaulted with models who are beyond what anyone would deem a bit fluffy, and are so grossly overweight that one wonders how they fit in a car.

I'm not advocating making fun of fat people just as I would not suggest making fun of a cripple. But I'm also not suggesting that there is such a thing as "fat, but fit" or "beautiful at any size."

The left has a way of taking things that are not the norm, and trying to force people to not only accept them as normal, but to celebrate the deviations.

This whole fat acceptance movement has been around since the sixties, but now it's being crammed down our throat by the MSM, just as they did with homosexuality, and it's going to kill people.

Losing weight in the world we live in is not easy.  The grocery stores are packed with a whole bunch of unhealthy and mostly prepackaged stuff that can only loosely be called food, and I have great sympathy and offer great support to anyone who is trying to control their issues with food.

But as far as the picture of Donald Trump?  Meh...

I leave you with the wise words of C.S. Lewis
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
Passion Sunday

Tomorrow is known as Passion Sunday in the traditional Latin liturgy and the beginning of the season of Passiontide which ends on Good Friday.

In many churches the statues and pictures are veiled to be unveiled on the vigil of Easter as a way to keep us focused on the penitential aspect of this liturgical season.

Is Grocery Delivery Just Another Way to Isolate Us?...

just thinking out loud.

You may find an odd discussion for someone who purchases numerous items from Amazon, but an article at The Blaze today, Walmart announces expanded grocery delivery in attempt to compete with Amazon, set me to pondering this again.

Yesterday, after history club and a haircut, I made a quick stop at Costco for a few items, and then headed off to Lowe's to purchase a threshold and wood for a baseboard.

While at Costco I had a long discussion with a nice demo person and several  shoppers.  At Lowe's, after finding what I needed, I popped into the garden department to peruse the plants and visit with the nice gentleman who had discounted a fig plant for me by half because it had a few damaged leaves. He told me how much he liked working for Lowe's and was pleased to hear my fig was sprouting a new leaf. 

At Walmart, I'm on first name basis with the manager of the jewelry department, several of the greeters, and the manager of the plant department. I've traded recipes with other shoppers and been given advice on purchases.

Behind all of this delivery and online shopping is the idea that we're all too busy to do anything so mundane as shop for our own groceries.  I'm not at all sure what people are so busy doing that they can't pick out their own lettuce.

The majority of the purchases I make from Amazon are for items I can't find locally.  Last week I shopped for 9 x 12 manila envelopes at Walmart. There wasn't any (really!)  I admit to not having time to make repeat trips to Wallyworld or drive to Coeur d'Alene to an office supply for envelopes.  So I came home, ordered them from Amazon, and had them in two days.

I see two things going on here.

First - if you want to retain your customers, going head to head with Amazon is not going to work.

The only thing you have to offer people is good old fashioned service.  Our local Ace Hardware keeps getting bigger and bigger. The owner has stores in neighboring towns which are also expanding. After Walmart came to town many years ago they expanded the store.  In recent months they remodeled all of the stores and opened a new one. 

Walmart is spending it's time fighting Amazon, while our local Ace has an employee stationed at the front door who greets you with a friendly, "What can I help you find today?"  He or she knows exactly where that obscure widget is located and directs you there where another employee gives you advice about the widget's use, correct installation, and recommends all the other things you need to complete your project.  Amazon can't do that.

Meantime, Walmart is cutting hours and planning a remodel wherein the jewelry department, a huge money maker for the store, will be cut half-in-two (that's Texan for half), and other departments will also be decimated so they can focus on delivering people's SpaghettiOs.  Meantime, Amazon had to bring me my 9 x 12 envelopes. That doesn't make sense to me.

And second - is this just a way to further isolate people?  

We live in a time where the driving forces of politics has created division and separation like never before. The "other side" is demonized - in many cases rightly so.

Add to that "smart" phones and computers and our human contact is becoming a thing of the past. 

People who are isolated from their neighbors are easier to control and control of the masses is high on the list of many who hold power in today's world. 

What are you thoughts on this push for grocery delivery?

The question of "why" continues with mega-input...

as it pertains to how liberals "think" and why they do what they do  - all of which is thought provoking.

And I thank you all for your comments - all of which are excellent and warrant attention.  They can be read on the following two posts:

The most important question: Why?...


Let's take a look at some bloggers who have weighed in on the issue of why liberals believe what they believe.

The Night Wind writes:  IS LIBERALISM A MENTAL DISORDER? and does a great job of expounding on the subject.

Francis Porretto adds his ten dollars worth (Fran never does anything for 2 cents) with The Will To Believe.

And Hardnox adds to the discussion with Liberals vs Leftists and reminds us of an earlier post which lays out how the communist agenda is being manifested today in The Communist Agenda – 45 goals to destroy the United States of America.


That's a lot to take in and think about.

What is Intelligence?

And it also opened a Pandora box over what constitutes intelligence in the context of whether liberals are smart or dumb.  

MOTUS A.D. points out the leading intelligentsia in California with #Transformation Tuesday: Help! We're Trapped in the Future! - none of whom I consider in the least bit intelligent as defined by me. 

Tomorrow's Student Walkout

Yes indeedy - tomorrow is the great student walk out to demand gun control which almost no one cares about.  I guess the kids, who are being used as pawns, will have a good time.  It's like the excitement we experienced when we had a fire drill.  Who can forget that fog horn blasting us out of our bored stupor?  And the lines.  OMGosh, the lines!  It felt like a parade and who doesn't love a parade?

The pink pussy hat Farrakhan loving harridans are all on board.  Yawn.

During Lent I'm not posting on Wednesday and Sunday.  I may continue this schedule after Lent. 

Now I'm off to lay tile in my bathroom closet.

If there was any doubt in your mind that the left hates you, let Hillary Clinton lay that to rest...

and she does it in a record 47 seconds.

Speaking to an audience in India, Hillary is quite adamant that she would be president if it wasn't for us backwards dirt people.

Earlier she had a hard time negotiating some stairs that the other people had no problem descending. To be fair, it appears her shoes may have been rather slippery.  However, I also saw many of the other people wearing shoes that should have been even slipperier - like ones with leather soles.

You be the judge...

Is "Why" the most important question? Rethinking the most important question...

as it applies to the opposition.

Two days ago I suggested that "why" was the most important question we need to ask ourselves.  A big thank you to all my very smart commenters for their input in the combox and it would be well worth your time to read them.

Applying the question of "why" to the things we think and do is still high on my list of beliefs.  It forms the backbone of breaking bad habits, enforcing good ones, and sorting through the daily stuff (yeah - there I go throwing around 10 dollar words like "stuff" again) that makes up our lives.

However, when trying to apply the question to what motivates others to do what they do, it becomes a bit more sketchy.

Trying to sort out the thought process of today's progressive is like looking for a spider in your linen closet. 

Under consideration is how they were raised, the amount of propaganda they've been exposed to, education (with education and propaganda being closely related in today's world), and environment.  And it also depends on their quality of intelligence.

After perusing some headlines today (listed below) I've come to the conclusion that the average progressive today is of low intelligence, insecure, and just plain mean. 

And if we look at the legal definition of insanity, you may find a picture of any leading democrat politician right smack dab adjacent to the definition:
 Mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior. Insanity is distinguished from low intelligence or mental deficiency due to age or injury.
Just looking at these headlines makes a normal person say, "Huh?"

Blazing Cat Fur:  Parkland Survivors Attack Dana Loesch’s Children

Legal Insurrection:  The Governator Plans to Sue Oil and Gas Companies Claiming They Committed First Degree Murder

The Blaze:  City of Baltimore to spend taxpayer money on lawyers for illegal immigrants


and yet they demonize Betsy deVoss

NewsBusters:  CBS Hammers ‘Devout Christian’ DeVos: The ‘Most Hated Member’ of Trump Cabinet

even schools in the UK are not immune to the insanity

Daily Mail: Lecturers are told to attend workshops to 'understand their white privilege' and examine how their 'whiteness' makes them unwittingly racist

So there you have it, friends.  My quest for the "why" of the average progressive libtard Commie Marxist is drawing to a close.  Although I'm certainly not discounting the influence Satan has on their psyche.

The most important question: Why?...

for ourselves and for others.

My quest to provoke and prod my feeble little brain into some understanding of why people believe and do stuff ("stuff" is a highly academic word, but I promise not to throw out too many more 10 dollar words) continues.

Having already read about half of David Horowitz's book, Radicals: Portraits of a Destructive Passion, I am no closer to an answer. 
From Karl Marx to Barack Obama, Horowitz shows how the idealistic impulse to make the world “a better place” gives birth to the twin cultural pathologies of cynicism and nihilism, and is the chief source of human suffering. A former liberal himself, Horowitz recounts his own brushes with radicalism and offers unparalleled insight into the disjointed ideology of liberal elites through case studies of well-known radial leftists, including Christopher Hitchens, feminist Bettina Aptheker , leftist academic Cornel West, and more.
He does a credible job of telling the stories of some of the most radical of what we now call Social Justice Warriors.  But there is no hint of their "why" other than they honestly believe they will turn the world into a utopia.

Our "why" is the question we should all be asking ourselves about any endeavor we pursue - from leisure activities to academic studies, and to habits - both good and bad.

We do know that people do certain things because there is ultimately a payoff.  The payoff might be feeling better as is the case with drugs and alcohol, escapism through reading light novels, a physical high from exercise, or the esteem of the people with whom you associate. 

It's the last "why" that I find most interesting.  People who live in a predominantly liberal area tend to be liberal in their views.  Did they migrate there because of the likelihood of finding people who thought like them or, more insidiously, did their views morph to fit with the prevailing thought?

I grew up in what has become a predominantly liberal area, but raised by parents who could only be considered conservative. My parent's siblings were also conservatives.  I escaped St. Paul when I was a twig of 17 and moved to Houston, TX.

The majority of my contemporary relatives who remained behind became flaming progressive SJW's.  I can only attribute that to the payoff of gaining the admiration of people who continually pounded them with the failed Marxist mantra of social justice, equality, and intolerance which leads to the inability to reason.

The other factor is that their abandonment of the faith in which they were raised.  Many have become "spiritual", but not "religious", a phrase that defies description in any language I understand.

There is no doubt that the MSM lauds and applauds those on the left and denigrates and downplays the people who hold more conservative views which adds more pressure to people who, in my opinion, have lost their ability to reason and tend to operate more on feelings. The payoff is being able to feel good about themselves.

Living now in North Idaho, I don't get many chances to interact with liberals, but if I did, the first question I would have to ask them is, "Why?"

There is something to be said about Michael Savage's famous line - "liberalism is a mental disorder."

Dr. Jordan Peterson joins Tucker Carlson to Discuss the War on Men...

led mostly by toxic feminists who are celebrating International Women's Day today (March 8th) 

Over 40% of babies born today are living in fatherless homes.  The percentages for fatherless black babies hovers around 70%.  Boys enter school to be taught propagandized by a majority of women teachers where dangerous drugs are foisted on them if they dare to act like boys.

"A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" shouted the feminists during the 60's and 70's.  It appears they've realized their dreams of a beta male society.

It appears that Jordan Peterson is not appreciated by the anti-free speech activists in Canada. They don't like the fact that Dr. Peterson opposes a bill that would make calling a person by their preferred made up pronoun a criminal matter. 

The second video shows some protesters at his latest speech held at Queen's College on March 5th.  Please note the preponderance of unkempt foul mouthed females while a very few beta males stand around looking lost.   

Jordan Peterson:

"If you have your children in a school and they talk about equity, diversity, inclusivity, white privilege, systemic racism, or any of that you take your children out of class.  They're not being educated, they're being indoctrinated. And there's absolutely no excuse for that."

Is Ping Ponging Around the Internet Driving Us Insane?...

not sure about you, but I'm hanging by a frayed thread.

And , no - I'm not looking at cat videos.

Okay - listen up here.  That title is just click bait.  I'm not going insane and neither are you (unless, of course, you're spending hours looking at kitteh videos.)

Yesterday's ping pong match took me to doing research on Oswald Mosely, who became leader of the British Union of Fascists (BUF) during the early 1930's.  That led to reading up on the BUF. 

Somehow or another, because no one is really sure how this ping ponging thingy works, I spent some time reading about the antics of  Joachim von Ribbentrop , the hapless socially inept Nazi, during his time as ambassador to Great Britain.  Things didn't go well for him and he was the first of many to be sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials.

Not to be left out was Haile Selassie  who was the emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974.  How I got to Haile is a mystery. 

Veggies fermenting in pantry which may or may not explode.
And then we had the time spent doing a bit more research on fermenting veggies.  I bought some of the well reviewed Farmhouse fermented veggies at the grocery store.  It cost over $6.00 for a teeny little bag of the critters.  I finally said to self, "If people who are probably not smarter than moi can do this, so can you."  So I did. 

I'm taking the super simple route for now, but have my eye on this fermenting stuff at Amazon.   At $26.00, it's a bargain compared to the $24.00 I spent for a bag of fermented veggies, kim chi, and a jar of sauerkraut. 

All the blog experts out there say the only way to be a successful blogger is to offer vaaluuuuuuue to your readers. Well, here's your value:

You WILL care about the Academy Awards...

even if you don't.

We start our week with morning to night coverage of a bunch of hypocritical nobodies gathered together to applaud each other for being "woke."

Since the ratings were at an all time low, I guess their pontificating about guns, while being surrounded by 500 armed guards, didn't translate to the dirt peeps giving a good gosh darn.

Of much more interest is an article from 2015 about David Horowitz that was sent to me by very bright lady, frequent commenter, and friend of this blog, Joy Daniels Brower - and we thank her.


From red-diaper baby to New Leftist to the Left's most formidable enemy.

Having forgotten that David was behind the wonderful resource of Discover the Networks, and having also forgotten that he founded FrontPage Magazine and Truth Revolt, it sent me scurrying to Amazon to peruse all his writings. As usual my next stop was our wonderful local library to see which of his books was available.  Whew - it's fully stocked with David Horowitz books. 

Of particular interest was his book Radicals: Portraits of a Destructive Passion, which will be picked up at the Liberty Lake, WA library and delivered to my branch in Post Falls, Idaho - and we thank them!
In 2012 Horowitz published what with one large exception was to be a final episode in the work of the second half of his life—to understand the pathology of the left, its hatred of America, and its destructive agendas. He gave it the title Radicals: Portraits of a Destructive Passion (2012). Among its six chapters is a portrait of his friend, Christopher Hitchens, whose incomplete second thoughts about his radical commitments becomes for Horowitz a measure of what it means to be of the left, and what it means to have left the left. This poignant rendering of both the man and his evolving ideology explores the seamless fabric joining radical ideas and lives, and the destructive consequences of both. (from the above linked article on David Horowitz)
I really have a burning desire to understand what makes a person a simmering cauldron of radical Commie/Marxist/Socialist thinking - which doesn't really appear to be thinking as much as "feeling."  Maybe Horowitz will give me some clues.

 While waiting for the book, I plan to do a re-read of Witness by Whittaker Chambers, already ensconced on my bookshelf. 

And later today I want to read  Why Intellectuals Fall for Socialism by Friedrich Hayek. I'm curious to see how Hayek defines an "intellectual" since the people I encounter who purport to be libtards do nothing more than spout borrowed ideas with not one wit of intellectualism to back up their claims to a future utopia.

March for Our Lives...

a student led march against guns planned for March 24th.

Except it's not student led.

It's a whole bunch of libtard political action groups like the Women's March,, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, and Planned Parenthood is helping to fuel this to show their support for the kids they didn't manage to hoover out of their mother's womb.

And then we have the celebrities giving voice and money to the movement with George Cloony leading the pack.

What kind of vile people would use children to advance their wicked cause?  Oh, maybe it's the same people who drag their little kids to homosexual pride parades, and outfit them with vile vulgar signs at pro-abortion rally's.

Check out the anti-gun protest in Stockton where the kids broke windows on cars - including police cars, in their quest for peace and safety.

Alec Baldwin - the new voice for ethics, morality, intellectualism, and spirituality...

yeah - I'm being sarcastic.

When asked how he felt about doing his crappy unfunny impersonation of our president on Saturday Night Live, Baldwin had this to say:
"Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't. If things don't go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump. I'll vote for Mitt Romney. I don't care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn't matter. We have to get rid of him. And that's another project I'm working on. I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I'm gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we're gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I'm wondering can I host a game show in Spain."  source

And Trump said?
Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 2, 2018

from a bunch of stuff to not care about.

The Oscars rank way high of the list of things to which we should eschew.  Watching a bunch of evil maggots parading their ignorance and arrogance (those two things go together 99.9% of the time) in prime time is a waste of hours of your life.  Just say no.

How about the Daily Mail, which stops just short of "alien baby born in toilet" stories?  Do we really need to know that billionaire Robert Kraft's much younger girlfriend had a baby he claims is not his?  (Okay - I'll cop to liking to look at the pics on Daily Mail.)

Or that it's whitey's fault that blacks are dysfunctional?  I think we already know that's not true.

And then we have mincing faggot (yes - I went there) George Takei weighing in on gun control by spewing a bunch of nonsense.  What is worrisome is the libtards actually listen to this clown, but it's still not enough to make me care.

What to Do Instead

Yesterday was my history club meeting.  This is a group of people who gather together every Wednesday to discuss history and how it's manifesting in today's world.

We have no bylaws, rules, dues, or any of the stuff that usually ends up ruining groups of like minded people.  I would compare it more to the famous salons of intellectuals that gathered in centuries past.
The salon was an Italian invention of the 16th century, which flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. The salon continued to flourish in Italy throughout the 19th century. In 16th-century Italy, some brilliant circles formed in the smaller courts which resembled salons, often galvanized by the presence of a beautiful and educated patroness such as Isabella d'Este or Elisabetta Gonzaga. read more
It was started by Syd Albright, a brilliant man who is passionate about history. He writes a column in our local paper every week on important historical events.

Our group is becoming quite large - with yesterday's group of at least 40 people. We meet in a room of a restaurant in Coeur d' Alene where many of us enjoy breakfast.

Yesterday we discussed the history of gun control and the current goings on in that area and what action steps we could take in protecting our 2nd amendment rights.  We also decided that we may start to invite a select few people to address our group, with Raul Labrador being the first.

My suggestion to you is that you form a group like our history club.  It may start out with only 4 or 5 people, but in time you will grow.  The only "formal" part of the club is the folks who agree to do a "popcorn story."  A popcorn story is a story that must be written and read to the group that gives a bit of personal history and leaves you wanting to know more - hence the popcorn designation.   It's much like the stories your grandparents told you when you were little.  Unfortunately, those stories all too often become lost through the generations.

So hop on the phone, call your friends, form a group, and make a difference.  You won't be sorry.

Small Blog Highlight

I'm not using the word small as an insult.  It's only to differentiate between sites like Drudge and Breitbart and the people who are doing a yeoman's job of keeping us informed.

Freedom's Lighthouse is one such site under the able leadership of the very nice and hardworking Brian. Go visit and put them on your list of must reads.
Freedom’s Lighthouse is dedicated to being a blog of record for the political history of the United States of America. The United States is “Freedom’s Lighthouse” in a world where the light of freedom is not found in many places. We will record that history – past and present – with a great emphasis on video, and will also mix in some of the nation’s top sports and cultural news. In all we do we will seek to uphold the conservative principles that have made America “Freedom’s Lighthouse.”

Toxic Politics Stressing You Out? Just Stop It!...

the best advice you're going to get today.


Before you think that I'm going all "I know best" on you, allow me to say the advice comes from noted psychoanalyst Bob Newhart on the Bob Newhart show back in the 70's.

I remember back when Wayne Dyer (RIP) first published Your Erroneous Zones back in 1976.  It made a profound difference in my life - some good and some not so good.  The good outweighed the bad.

Later in life, Dyer (IMO) went all new agey and promoted some ideas that were not all that great.

What I remember most about him was an early appearance on the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.  Relying on a memory from an event that took place over 40 years ago, and not being able to find anything online about his appearance, you'll have to bear with my paraphrasing of what he said.

He related a story about a woman who had come to see him to help cure her nail biting problem.  Since I have been an on and off nail biter my entire life, my ears perked up.

She told him that she had seen numerous psychologists and psychiatrists and no one had been able to help her.  Since Dyer was the new kid on block, she was hopeful he could help her.

He questioned her about all the different things she had been told her years of therapy.

Finally he asked her, "Has anyone ever told you to keep your fingers out of your mouth?"


And perhaps that became the beginning of my passion for "cutting to the chase", "getting to the point", and "keeping it simple."

Today we have a plethora of people who could benefit from some of the advice Dyer wrote about.  Instead we now pump people full of dangerous psychotropic drugs, many which lead to suicide, homicidal violence, and physical ills.

The subversives in the world tell women they can become men, men can become women, being a homosexual is normal and a gift from God, women and men are exactly the same in all ways, it's just a clump of cells, Islam is the religion of peace, Trump is a Russian operative, and guns kill people all by themselves.   And if you, dear dirt person, dare to disagree with any of this you are labeled a dangerous right wing fanatic.  That's enough to stress anyone - if you let it.

So if the current politics, which are really no different then the politics since Eve convinced Adam that eating the fruit of the forbidden tree was a good idea - no doubt the first instance of recorded propaganda in history, listen to the wise words of Bob Newhart which he could have been uttered before Wayne Dyer published his book.
