Gooooood day to you!

Dropping the needle to the vinyl:

Introducing 1 out of, like, 3 solid friends I’ve made in Colorado since 2020.  Quality over quantity.  ♥️ Discern who is worth your energy.  

Ope, she went for it…straight for the sugar supply!

Daylight Savings is next week!  Yes, it’s that time yet again when we set our clocks forward (“spring forward”), which means mind + body adjustments, for at a minimum, a few days. 

A quick brief historical overview and how wishy washy DLS has been over the years:

First, Benjamin Franklin, the Parisian whoremonger who had every STD you could possibly have, came up with DLS probably over a glass of warm beer.  They say syphilis really messes with your mind. 

1966 - Congress establishes the Uniform Time Act of 1966, creating a federal system of Uniform Daylight Savings Time throughout the USA starting the last Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.  States can opt out by exemption.

1974-1975 - Congress extends DLS in order to save energy during an energy crisis.

1986-2006 - DLS begins on the FIRST Sunday in April and ends on the last Sunday in October.  Coincidentally church attendance on these days was pretty low!

August 8, 2005 - “Curious” George W. Bush  with his fuzzy math signs the Energy Policy Act of 2005 into law extending DLS starting in 2007, from the SECOND Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

2007 - All of Indiana now observes DLS whereas only certain areas of the state did before.

Daylight Savings officially starts March 12 (at precisely 2 a.m.) - my grandfather used to tell people he would wake up exactly at 2 a.m. and do all his clock and watch settings - and we all (aside from Hawaii and Arizona) will lose an hour in our day.  So, for a minute, think about the people who live in New Albany, Indiana but work in Louisville, Kentucky!  And vice versa!  That can really mess up your internal clock!   Think if you have kids who have to be at school at a certain time in one time zone and be at work in another time zone.  By what time zone would you set your car clock?  I hear new cars automatically change time zones.

And, while losing only one hour of sleep doesn’t seem like much (especially when you don’t believe in the construct of time like the Salvador Dali), in reality it can cause quite a disruption and affect both our mental + physical health until our bodies adjust.  Here are some stats on DLS (which begs the question of why we keep repeating the insanity, because apparently the only reason we keep doing this is for kids catching the bus in the cold, dark Autumn):

  • According to the US Department of Labor and Mine Safety and Health Administration data, researchers studying industrial psych discovered workplace accidents spiked following DLS time changes every…single… March!  The average worker lost at least 40 minutes of sleep…imagine 10% of your restful sleep lost as a new parent.  For those engaged in jobs with a high level of attention to detail, sleep is vital.   Sleep deprivation is linked to plummeting attention levels which most people would expect.  So, for heavy machinery operators, surgeons, pharmacists, air traffic controllers (we are having near misses already on a daily basis, like alarming safety lapses), CPA’s and tax preparers (oh by the way Uncle Sugar wants to give all your money to Ukraine and the deadline is approaching, don’t forget to claim your Ukrainian or three as a dependent - Nikoli or Vulga are pretty common audit proof Eastern European names), attention to detail is crucial!
  • Driving skills are affected!  So think of Colorado where the air is thin in higher altitudes and people decide to augment said air deprivation with weed!  Twenty years ago, Johns Hopkins and Stanford (by the way if you’ve never seen the Stanford Prison Experiment, grab your remote and watch it now - it will remind you of the mask mandates and group hysteria) dropped a 21-year study regarding fatal car crash data.  What the researchers found was that there was a spike in crash deaths on the Monday following the switch to DLS time.  
  • Moodiness!  Sleep disruptions can cause mood swings which lead to divorce.   If you’re already feeling bouts of depression, anxiety, and mental exhaustion, a lack of sleep can greatly exacerbate this pain-body state.
  • The spring forward sudden time change even has links to heart attacks and stroke (blood deprivation and blood leakage in the brain).  A study from 2014 found that losing just one hour of sleep during spring DLS increased the risk of a heart attack on the following Monday by 24%.  Ironically, gaining an extra hour of sleep in the fall time change led to a 21% lower risk of a heart attack!

My gift to you!  Here are some Colorado Kimmie tips to help you transition smoothly:

  • Grace.  Go easy on yourself!  Allot extra time evaluating your work tasks carefully.
  • Avoid operating heavy equipment while drowsy.  Your reaction times are greatly decreased.  Don’t plan any lengthy road trips, for example.
  • Consider gradually adjusting your sleep schedule in the days leading up to the time change.  Just by going to bed 10-15 minutes earlier every night, your body has more time to adjust, as opposed to BAM hitting it suddenly!
  • Accept that not everyone adjusts at the same pace as you!  If you observe a coworker stressed or fatigued, tell them that they’re about to have massive layoffs.  Just kidding!  I’m making sure you’re still engaged and paying attention.  You should encourage them to stop and take a break and grab some fresh air!
  • Embrace naps!  20 minutes is the gold standard.  Studies show if you go over you could feel even groggier or cranky.  In other words, naps can have a diminishing effect!  The Great Dane company which manufactures trailers allows their workers to stop and take periodic 20 minute naps.  They know it helps increase productivity!
Other companies that allow nap time:
Proctor and Gamble 
Ben and Jerry’s 

Focus on the silver linings!  More daylight=longer day and later sunsets=enjoy with a glass of wine before bed!

One last Colorado Kimmie tip before I sign off.  Never trace your middle finger and send it to your boss.  For some reason, they tend to frown heavily on such artwork.

Raise Your Glass and Say, Cheers to the Ones That We Got!

Hi there!  

We are in March now when I realized I haven’t written a single thing since January.  I’ve been pleasantly distracted.  Did you know most Americans have to work 3-4 months before they start taking money home?  For the first 4 months it all goes to Federal, State, and sales tax.  If that weren’t bad enough the people receiving the fruits of your labor will call you a racist and scream at you for putting America first.  Have fun getting those taxes done!

So let’s get going on March’s blog drop!  Queuing up some theme music for a quick drop on memories: 

I found this picture in my phone, recently.  It’s younger me against a vineyard landscape in the Carolinas.  The photographer was a brand new friend I met from California.  We visited Victoria Valley Vineyards that Saturday for a wine tasting.  Gosh, this was maybe a decade ago!

I texted him the photo and asked, “Do you remember this day?”  And he immediately texted back:

“On a Sunday afternoon with a potentially abused dog 🐕 just to my left, while I believe I was wearing a red fox jacket and black tinted aviator sunglasses, we got lost at first but turned around once you got your bearings back and left North Carolina…or at least near the border, the food was alright, wine was dry but the standout was the conversation and the company; and I remember not believing that someone that didn’t really know me, would care enough to do something that nice for me ☺️… My favorite random memory was your family member’s random confederate cabin and the cold beer & cheer before my legs locked up on the way back to the car 😄… The ol’photographic memory still works despite my years of poisoning it: cheers 🍻🥳😆 I can also describe the apartment you introduced me to, what we had at dinner, what we talked about, how much the tab was…and I can do that for any outing we’ve ever had, but…I can’t figure out what I want for dinner or sometimes remembering to put shoes on while running out of the door so… 🤣…”

SO impressive…the many small details he could recall that day so many years ago.  Memories, to me, are not only the most beautiful + completely unique assets we own, but the gift of a memory is priceless.  It’s also funny how two people can share in the same experience and walk away with slightly different recollections.  For example, I actually thought the paninis were pretty fantastic and I had completely forgotten about our trip my cousin’s confederate cabin!  Oh dear, I love alliteration!

I was presented with this question once: would you rather lose physical faculties or mental faculties when you grow old?  Wow, what a hard question.  To be able to walk around but not know who you are, where you are, or lose all memories?  Sounds like a nightmare.

I just watched “2001 Space Odyssey” for the first time recently.  The most terrifying part, spoiler alert, was the passive aggressive, almost sadistic nature of Hal, the onboard robot assisting the astronauts with their mission through the vast frontier of outer space.   The only way to outsmart the robot was by killing his programming while he complained about how much he felt the hurt.  Can robots even feel pain?  

Essentially our memories are our programming.  After all, we are made up of our experiences.  I read somewhere that the way to detect whether someone is human or AI is to ask him or her to recall a memory.  Supposedly artificial intelligence is completely devoid of memories.  This little trick may come in handy as computers eventually and systematically take over: this is the shit Ted Kaczynski warned us about.  By the way, he is warehoused nearby me in the Alcatraz of the Rockies, which I blogged about and can be found in the right hand column “index” of my blog.  

Sometimes memories can be a hurdle, such as overwhelming phobias of biting dogs or tight spaces in a elevator that randomly shut down and the telephone was inoperable.  Also, I think we discount often how important the programming actually is: what we watch, read, and subject ourselves to on a daily basis is vital to our overall mental health.

Some other interesting facts about memory and strengthening it…

1) Sleep deprivation may cause you to actually lose memories!  The more sleep you get, the better your memory retention becomes.  Here’s to more naps in 2023!

2) Menopause and hot flashes are tied to memory loss!  Wow women really are paying the price for that whole apple tasting thing. 

3) There are games and apps that are clinically proven to improve cognitive functions and memories.  Crosswords and word scrambles are good too!

4) Reading!  This is awesome, because I just joined the snaked at book club in Colorado!

5) NOT relying on technology all the time!

Leave me a comment if you have memory strengthening recommendations!  If you don’t think memory is important, watch a clip of Joe Biden forgetting where he is 100% of the time while looking for chocolate chip ice scream while sniffing little kids, saying “Look Jack, no joke” and “cmon man give me a break man, I’m running for Senator!”

Thanks for reading, and I hope you make some really excellent memories this year.  I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes:

“We didn’t know we were making memories…we just thought we were having fun.”

Relationships VERSUS Dictatorships and How to Know the Difference....

 Hello!  Welcome back to "Colorado Kimmie" and Happy New Year!  This is actually my first post for 2023.  I've been working on a few other posts, but they're just not quite done yet.  And, I wanted to get some content shared, so I hope this resonates with a reader who has some good goals for finding love in 2023.  This post is meant as a guide for you, because I'm rooting for anyone open to love!

First, I want to share that I've been guilty of it in a good majority of my dating life:  dating without purpose.  If you are someone who dates without a purpose or any goal, just beware that you can become stuck in relationship purgatory.  YES dating should be fun!  But, void of goals or purpose or communicating what you desire out of the relationship (or any grounding), you're more likely to become a feather in the wind blowing around, not setting healthy boundaries for yourself, and not seeing signs of relationship doom (when to cut slingload, abort mission and save your precious time).  

What exactly makes for a healthy relationship?  To me, it's awareness, dealing with conflict in a respectful way, sharing values, and mutual connection (admiration and growing TOWARDS each other).  Yes, I'm writing this for anyone (man or woman) who is seeking a mutually respectful long-term relationship in 2023.  

The first thing to remember is that words are only words.  Someone can tell you they love you and respect you; however, actions and patterns show how much someone truly feels about you as a long-term relationship partner.  I'm about to lay out some major red flags that indicate you're in a dictatorship in which one person is only seeking dominance/control of you.  It's easy to become fooled because many of these dictatorships begin with adoration and then slowly turn up the abuse.  But soon you experience the devaluation stage and then the final discard  which make you feel like trash.  

Please note, I'm not a licensed counselor/therapist and my blog legal disclaimer outlines that my posts are merely for entertainment purposes.  However, at 43 I feel like I have enough life experience, interpersonal and psychology interest, and dating under my belt to be able to share what I consider to be major red flags.  As soon as you detect these, please do not discount them as a "one off" happenstance.  Speak up immediately to address the concerns.  The healthiest relationships are not the ones with zero conflict.  The power couples are actually the teams that know how to have healthy discourse and build and get through conflict.  On the flip side, the couples who don't last are the ones who never face conflict, stonewall the other, and hold grudges and silent treatments.

By addressing these things, you allow your partner to see and have self-awareness.  However, if you address these and patterns immediately reemerge, you should RUN, not walk away from the disrespectful dictatorship.  Most importantly, a healthy relationship should never be about losing yourself.  Nothing that is FOR you will require you to sacrifice your lovely unique self, take away your voice, or tear away at your freedoms.  

So let's jump in to red flags...(and to me these are all non-negotiables)

Name Calling:

This is any name calling whatsoever.  Whether it's "Annoying," "Stupid," "Crazy," name calling does nothing to build towards you.  To the contrary, it pushes you away.  A lot of times it's followed with, "Can't you take a joke?"  "You're too sensitive!"  Not only does name calling do absolutely nothing to resolve conflict, it actually causes more of it!  

Constantly interrupts you, belittles you, silences you, talks down to you like you're a child, or gives you the look (usually eye roll), mainly shuts you down:

This behavior indicates that they don't really give a shit about anything you think.  Sorry not to sugar coat it, but you need to hear this.  If you are sharing something you are passionate about and you get shut down by statements like "I don't care," that's not only rude and inconsiderate, it's a clear indication that the person is not seeking connection TOWARDS you, but only dominance and control OVER you.  Further, a really intimidated + insecure partner silences a voice of truth or passion.  Any partner who is working towards a connection with you will never take away your voice or freedoms of expression. Ever!  In fact what you'll find out is if you stick around long enough - what they think is always more important that what you think.  You'll even find them bringing up the exact same topics they didn't want to hear you speak about, because it's only important when they talk about it.

No independence:

Controlling or crazy jealous behavior!  If they question every time you're on your phone EVEN when they're doing something else as well, it's a flag.  Any controlling or jealous tendencies indicate that they are internalizing some major trust issues from the past and projecting them onto you.  A healthy mature relationship has complete trust.  A lot of women, especially, will take trust issues as flattery at first, but it's not.  And, it gets progressively worse.  It is not your job to remedy these deep rooted trust issues.  They need to be in a therapist's chair.  In fact, I read somewhere that a lot of people are in therapy to heal from those who refuse to go to therapy.  Is that not ironic?  If there is no trust, RUN - FLAG!

Use your insecurities or vulnerabilities against you:

When you share a painful part of your past or open up about anything that requires a level of vulnerability and this information in turn, is melted down into bullets to shoot back at you?  That's just mean spirited!  This is belittling and hurtful and definitely not building any connections towards you.  It's a major FLAG!

Calling all the shots and never consulting with you:

Suddenly you find yourself having all plans made for you without deciding together.  It's never anything you want to do, EVER!  Your personal interests and suggestions or ideas about what to do are often discarded.

Overly Critical and Extreme Highs and Lows:

You never feel like you're good enough!  The benchmark is always moved.  Even when you're trying to do a favor, you are criticized for doing it wrong.  One minute you get this hot feeling and the next minute a really cold feeling.  It's not only mixed signals, it's not knowing which person you're going to get so you end up being pensive with a sick nervous system because you feel like you're constantly walking on eggshells and they could explode at any moment.

Telling you how you should feel as opposed to validating how YOU truly feel:

This behavior indicates legit ZERO self awareness.  If you're constantly  being told "It's no big deal," "you're taking it wrong," "you're too sensitive," and just they are constantly invalidating how something made you feel, it's showing zero connection.  The cold truth:  Someone can demonstrate zero interest to understand you, EVEN when you're by their side sitting right next to them.  You are just a warm body next to them who they can dominate and control.

Silent Treatment:

Silent treatments are immature, rude, dysfunctional, and manipulative to the core!  This behavior includes turning away from you while you're talking or texting about your feelings and is completley devoid of any loving connection  Refusing to talk or engage with you, also known as stonewalling someone, keeps any issue in constant gridlock and never resolved.  It's selfish and a complete power move.  Even worse, they can't talk about any emotions and refuse to acknowledge your emotions every single time conflict arises.  FLAG!


It doesn't matter what kind of lie it is or if it's a little white lie.  Gaslighting is the biggest concern - when you bring up something that was said and it's outright denied.  Gaslighting will eventually make you question your own sanity!  FLAG!

Do any of these sound familiar and maybe patterns of flags you're not picking up or noticing?

Hopefully this post is helpful too you on your 2023 dating journey.  If I've missed any important ones, leave me a comment below.  You've got this, and I'm rooting for you!  Dating requires you to get out of your comfort zone, be authentic, and be vulnerable.  Pay attention to your gut, your nervous system, and how you personally feel around a potential life partner.  Don't discount red flag behavior.  Behavior, not words, is the true indication of how they feel about you.  Most importantly, the right person will make you fall in love with yourself too!

Why We Can't Read Cool Books Anymore...

Good day to you!  

I wanted to squeeze in one more blog in 2022 and I'll just start by mentioning one name...Mary Phagan.  Ever heard of her?  The name was vaguely familiar to me as a child, and it turns out my Great Aunt Mattie played this song on the piano when I came to visit as a child.  Honestly, I don't think I ever paid attention to the lyrics, but I can still hear her sing the name "Mary Phagan":                                         

or this version:

Kinda creepy, no?

I would venture to say MOST people who were the product of public schoolling (like me) and who have been in the process of unlearning indoctrinations and all the lies we were told in this standardizing institution called public school  (such as - Kennedy was assasinated by a random lone gunman - which has recently been proven to be a BIG lie by our government) - we never, ever heard of Mary Phagan, unless you had a cool great aunt give you piano lessons.  What about the name Leo Max Frank?  Ring a bell?  These are names you should know in order to understand why so many books are banned in our country!

Mary Phagaan

Let me start back in 1913.  Thirteen year old Mary Phagan was on her way to a patriotic parade on Confederate Memorial Day all festively dressed and ready to have a good time.  Before attending the events, she swung by her place of employment at The National Pencil Company in Atlanta, Georgia to pick up her paycheck from her boss, Leo Max Frank, a wealthy Jew.  The paycheck was a whopping $1.20 (adjusted for inflation in 2022, it would be $36.09) for her child labor services.  While at the factory that day (in the middle of the day - broad daylight outside), she was attacked, her panties ripped (more than likely an attempt to sexually abuse her), and she was eventually found dead and mutilated in the basement of the factory.

Leo Max Frank

Initially and early into the investigation there were several suspects (pretty much anyone at the factory that day), but eventually the superintendent of the factory, Leo Max Frank was found guilty by a jury of his peers and sentenced to hang for Mary's brutal murder.  

However, before Frank was to meet his death sentence, the outgoing Governor of Georgia commuted Frank's death sentence from death by hanging to life in prison (still acknowledging guilt but because he was Jewish, a lighter sentence was decided - and this was 30 years BEFORE the Holocaust).  This was mostly as a result of the Jewish community sizably financing campaigns (and, because Frank belonged to a huge Jewish fraternal order).  But, Mary Phagan's community was LIVID after hearing of the commuted sentence.  They broke into the jail and dragged Frank out of his cell and lynched him outside. 

The Jewish community was OUTRAGED.  How could this happen?  And, they demanded justice.  One major outcome of the lynching was the formation of a non-profit called the Jewish Antidefamation League, or the ADL for short.  This organization is responsible for banning A WHOLE LOT of books in this country.  Why?  Well, the narrative was, at the time, that BOTH the trial and the subsequent lynching were a result of antisemitic rhetoric.

Even today, Frank's innocence is still strongly advocated.  President Biden even exclaimed Frank's innocence.  But, is Frank's alleged innocence a result of actual FACTS or century-old Jewish propaganda?  After the full blown investigation, it came down to two men who could have possibly brutally murdered Mary, and Frank was one of them.  Frank had a reputation as well!  It was said he was condescending, miserly, and sexist.  He was a horrible person!  So these things don’t make you a murderer, but it sure as shit doesn’t paint doesn’t paint anyone in a good light.  So, let’s dive into the facts!

Here is a link to some of the facts presented at the trial and backed by eye witnesses:

Now to the aftermath of this lynching: the OG cancel culture! Let's take a look at the list of books banned by the ADL:  I bet you thought I'd be posting a link here but, JUST KIDDING!  The ADL won't even reveal the exponentially longer than life list of books they banned from schools and bookstores!  Hear me out!  This is just a general rule of thumb: if a book is banned, you need to try to find to it and read it and decide for yourself why the ADL banned it!  There’s one book on the list that I can’t even mention here, because the ADL would blacklist me from society.

Since 1913, there have been several critics question the organization's mantra "to fight antisemitism and all forms of bigotry," the legitimacy of the organization, and potential underlying motives, especially since the organization has since grown into a mega-powerhouse as one of the most powerful socio-political organizations weilding a lot of influential power in the USA and across the globe.  Yet they only contribute to one political party of censorship.  

My brother visiting the graveside of Mary Phagan…

The more ya know!  Happy New Year!

Go Broncos!

 Merry Christmas (a few days late)!

So a little back story…

In a pretty massive quarterback deal, the Broncos purchased Russell Wilson (from the Seattle Seahawks) in an agreement that reached a five year extension in a $245 million contract that includes a $165 million GUARANTEE!  I had no idea pro football players raked in this kind of dough!  Oh but the guarantee…this means if Wilson breaks a leg or can’t play for any reason, he is guaranteed to “walk” away with $165 million - without even playing or throwing a football!  A whopping $296 million and 7 years now tie the knot with Russell and the Broncs!

So what’s all the bitching and belly moaning about?  Well, turns out Wilson can’t play in this elevation, and apparently the contract was executed before seeing this athlete in action in the Mile High city!  I scored amazing tickets to a game to see what all the horse whining was about, but Russell wasn’t even playing this game!  A second string Canadian QB brought in a big win for Denver! 

Here are some pics of my $400 a seat club level Mile High Empower Stadium trip against Arizona Cardinals:

I sat next to a ginger tribe member! 

Bronco dude dancing it out above the scoreboard…

Nice warm fireplace by the bar…with club level seating you could come inside the “club” and warm up!

Some copter action…

Loved this van!

What’s a stadium experience without the ice cream of the future…Dippin’ Dots…

Panorama view with this biscuit eater…

Denver actually played well!!

Club level Carolina pork bbw at G-Que …these are the bbq pork nachos only they were already out of tortilla chips and made these on top of kettle chips…oh…my….God.

And, did I mention the Broncos took the WIN!!!!  Overall this was a great first experience for me!  Not only was this my first Denver Broncos game, but this was my first NFL game ever!  I also learned the NFL is split into American and National leagues just like baseball!  Who knew!?  I love life and continually learning new things.

The Military-Industrial...It's Complex!

Wow, mid/December already?  Where has this year gone??

Hiking up to Mother Cabrini’s Shrine here in Colorado!

And, could it get even crazier?  Yes.  Big Pharma admitted the vaccine never prevented the contraction AND/OR transmission of COVID-19 right after millions of Americans lost their employment for refusing to inject an experimental drug into their arms!  I mean we’re dealing with novel spike proteins (messenger RNA with zero clinical trials and furthermore these companies are making billions off this stuff with zero liability, completely exonerated - all while the People who are making the rules are invested in the stock.  It’s wronger than two little boys kissin’ in church.  Have you wondered why there are so many airline delays?  Are you completely glossing over we fired thousands of airline pilots for refusing experimental medicine?  We never had these problems before.  You plan on it now…to sleep in airlines.  

And, even crazier, AFTER those two bold-faced lies, many Americans still are hanging on to third lie that the vaccine is boldly working as a therapeutic - something that doesn’t completely prevent but reduces symptoms (which isn't even the definition of a vaccine).   I mean WTF is it?  Have you ever seen a flu vaccine that required ongoing boosters!?  And most people who have gotten the vaccine are catching Covid at a higher rate and more often than unvaccinated because they’re immunity has been suppressed.  Don’t believe me?  Biden has had every shot under the moon and THE best healthcare and he has still contracted it three times that we know of.  Oh well, he can’t smell little girls’ hair.  I mean if Trump had sniffed just one little girls’ hair the Left would be burning down City blocks.  We aren’t ready to talk about sudden death, paralysis, myocarditis, Bell’s Palsy, seizures, shingles…JUST as long as it’s not Covid, we don’t care!  How will historians judge this absurd stupidity.  We trade in a stroke for a sore throat.

So why are people reluctant to admit they were wrong?  When it’s so obvious.  Why keep gaslighting people like me that smelled the bullshit from the 30th floor.  You're just not ready to apologize yet to your family and friends for being a complete ass hat and putting full faith in a shady/unscrupulous industry that makes money off you being sick?  Google these companies’ stock prices if you don’t believe me - from 2019 to current.  And, full allegiance to a short little prick who wouldn't know science if it hit him in his dick, and the almighty dollar, of course.  He even went against his own science when the money was right.  And, to this day no one knows exactly what amount of royalties Fauci got for promoting the jab.  But, we DO know he announced his retirement as THE highest paid government official in America this year - because he’s not only filthy rich but he knows the House is about to go Republican and more than likely start investigations into his practices!  Even China is admitting openly now that Fauci helped to fund gain-of-function research on Covid-19.  Gain-of-function is a fancy word for HE HELPED FUND BIOLOGICAL warfare to get Orange Man out   All with your tax dollars.  I think it goes without saying all sane people right now would trade in Orange man for the shit show the past three years!

The Warren Commission papers just revealed that the CIA played a major role in the assassination of JFK.  And, we have another highly suspicious election under our belts.  What happened to the days of paper ballots and learning the victor THE NIGHT OF THE ELECTION??  We are now in the age of ballot harvesting, chasing, muling and other unethical activity we don’t even know about yet.   And think about this:  we have been bombarded for the past two years by the Left on how popular Biden is and that he legitimately got the most votes of any Upright walking animal in the Universe AND is doing unequivocally THE best job of any US President in history (because the mainstream media tells us so, you see) - YET they wanna replace this guy now in 2024!?!  I went to public school in Tennessee but there’s this saying “you don’t fix what’s not broken!”  Recap- just in case you slept during civics, there’s these things called the Primaries.  Biden lost Iowa, New Hampshire and SC is debatable.  And he hid in his basement and never campaigned - and when he did he was licking ice cream and petting small children.  This is the cherry on the sundae…he had brain surgery in 1989 and failed the third grade.  You’d never see this among dolphins or elephants.  Only humans would allow the dumbest and weakest leading the population.

While 2022 has been as equally a shit show as the preceding years, I believe more and more people are understanding one thing to be true: A scary and unstoppable military-industrial complex.

The military-industrial complex...what is it, exactly?  Is it a secret cabal/"Deep State" within our own government?  A complex that secretly runs everything keeping us in perpetual war with each other? Multiple governments working as one?  Who or what was Eisenhauer warning us about in his farewell speech?  It seems as though this past US President is foreshadowing a perpetual war in which this machine or complex not only sells/manufactures/distributes guns, bombs, steel, viruses/germs, and armaments, but it controls both sides and make a lot of money in the process.  In Alabama, there is a factory that makes missiles that are being shipped to the Ukraine.  And each one sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Yet they’re not being sold - they’re being gifted courtesy of your tax dollars.  Are you ready to list Ukraine as your dependent on your next tax refund?  I’m sure you could count Vladimir the wheat farmer or Helga, the potassium miner as a dependent.  Getting back to Alabama, while we are helping Washington, DC and the military industrial-complex who has them on strings launder money through a Ukrainian war, meanwhile people in Alabama are living in Lean-to’s covered with tarps to keep the rain water out.  But if you sell missiles, you like war - not housing Americans or civil engineering projects.  After all, when you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Have you come out of the coma (both institutional and public school indoctrinations) to realize that our country and our world is ruled and operated by a handful of puppet masters who draw country lines, party lines, and have been modernized, incentivized and globalized post WWII? Yes, our elected leaders are nothing short of puppets on strings.  Again, let's look to what Dwight Eisenhauer, who saved us from WWII (the most tragic loss of life in an Industrial Age), warned the entire country about in the post-Nazi era right on the heels of a Soviet takeover.  He speaks to a New World Order he actually helped create, and then was allegedly rushed off to the Palm Springs Airport!  

In a speech lasting roughly 10 minutes given on January 17, 1961, given from the Oval Office, Americans were shocked to hear President Eisenhauer's strong warnings of a Military-Industrial Complex, also described as a necessary help evil (note: I decided to include the entire farewell speech as opposed to excerpts, because everyone should read this.  And, instead of highlighting the warnings, I wanted you to find them for yourself):

My fellow Americans:

Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor.

This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen.

Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all.

Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation.

My own relations with the Congress, which began on a remote and tenuous basis when, long ago, a member of the Senate appointed me to West Point, have since ranged to the intimate during the war and immediate post-war period, and, finally, to the mutually interdependent during these past eight years.

In this final relationship, the Congress and the Administration have, on most vital issues, cooperated well, to serve the national good rather than mere partisanship, and so have assured that the business of the Nation should go forward. So, my official relationship with the Congress ends in a feeling, on my part, of gratitude that we have been able to do so much together.


We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations. Three of these involved our own country. Despite these holocausts America is today the strongest, the most influential and most productive nation in the world. Understandably proud of this pre-eminence, we yet realize that America's leadership and prestige depend, not merely upon our unmatched material progress, riches and military strength, but on how we use our power in the interests of world peace and human betterment.


Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad.

Progress toward these noble goals is persistently threatened by the conflict now engulfing the world. It commands our whole attention, absorbs our very beings. We face a hostile ideology-global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose, and insidious in method. Unhappily the danger it poses promises to be of indefinite duration. To meet it successfully, there is called for, not so much the emotional and transitory sacrifices of crisis, but rather those which enable us to carry forward steadily, surely, and without complaint the burdens of a prolonged and complex struggle-with liberty at stake. Only thus shall we remain, despite every provocation, on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment.

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research-these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel.

But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs-balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage-balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between action of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.

The record of many decades stands as proof that our people and their government have, in the main, understood these truths and have responded to them well, in the face of stress and threat. But threats, new in kind or degree, constantly arise. I mention two only.


A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United State corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence-economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been over shadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system-ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.


Another factor in maintaining balance involves the element of time. As we peer into society's future, we-you and I, and our government-must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.


Down the long lane of the history yet to be written America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.

Such a confederation must be one of equals. The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength. That table, though scarred by many past frustrations, cannot be abandoned for the certain agony of the battlefield.

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose difference, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose. Because this need is so sharp and apparent I confess that I lay down my official responsibilities in this field with a definite sense of disappointment. As one who has witnessed the horror and the lingering sadness of war-as one who knows that another war could utterly destroy this civilization which has been so slowly and painfully built over thousands of years-I wish I could say tonight that a lasting peace is in sight.

Happily, I can say that war has been avoided. Steady progress toward our ultimate goal has been made. But, so much remains to be done. As a private citizen, I shall never cease to do what little I can to help the world advance along that road.


So-in this my last good night to you as your President-I thank you for the many opportunities you have given me for public service in war and peace. I trust that in that service you find somethings worthy; as for the rest of it, I know you will find ways to improve performance in the future.

You and I-my fellow citizens-need to be strong in our faith that all nations, under God, will reach the goal of peace with justice. May we be ever unswerving in devotion to principle, confident but humble with power, diligent in pursuit of the Nation's great goals.

To all the peoples of the world, I once more give expression to America's prayerful and continuing inspiration:

We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will understand, also, its heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth, and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love.


Now take a quick moment of silence to compare this eloquent Presidential speech to the incoherent mumblings of Biden.  Seriously, YouTube any of these for comparison!

Final note from author:  

I strongly believe most Americans are all about supporting the weak and the marginalized, within reason! However, when does it become fair that less than 1% of the population, roughly 8,000,000,000 people and growing, constantly make the sweeping decisions for the rest of us?  And, just how weak and marginalized is this 1% when fake and manufactured story after story emerged from our Main Stream Media?  And when will the rest of America wake up to the fact that our media is controlled by the Military-Industrial Complex right down to the exact repetitive buzz words you hear on every single station like a broken record?  After all, as Joseph Goebbels, a Nazi propagandist discovered: “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth!”

I fear not death just the manner in which it comes.

"Who Hurt You, Kimmie?"..."My Own Expectations"

 Hey Pals! 

I hope you had an excellent Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday of the entire year as a bonafide foodie).  Plus I got to cuddle with two little Ewoks (shih tzus) for a week straight!  It was heaven.  Now I understand why these are emotional support dogs.

Walking down by the Mississippi River at Mud Island and looking at all the properties I used to manage in another life.
Still, my favorite house on the river.  Minimalist and modern,
Like me!

Earlier today I was inspired to write something weighing on my heart, and although I still want to share those same sentiments, an odd and unexpected occurrence happened to me this afternoon that put a new perspective, or spin, on things.

I take a train into the city at least three times a week, and I never ever ever ever EVER have totally missed my stop.  But, I just had such a weird day today - especially picking up on some weird energies from people.  Anyway, I was on the train home from downtown Denver and just got so engrossed in thought that this young woman came up to me and touched me on the shoulder and said, "Ma'am, this is the last stop."  And, I looked up expecting to see the train cop or an Rail Transit of Denver employee, but it was a fellow passenger.  And, she just smiled with the most beautiful, warm smile.  And, I laughed and thought briefly, "Geez, Kimmie how long would you have sat here?"  But, I fumbled with my bag and explained to the girl that I totally missed my stop by not paying attention.

We walked off the train together and it was cold!  Usually I can handle the dry cold in Colorado until the wind starts blowing...brrrrrrr.  I immediately noticed this other woman.  I'm not really sure if she's homeless but she clearly suffers from a mental disorder or some sort of demons.  I remember her from one day when I was sitting on the train at Union Station.  I was reading a book and waiting for the train for my train to leave and she boarded, suddenly got right up in my face, and started shouting some really crazy things.  And, there she was again, today, shouting "you stupid f*ckin' n*gger, f*ck you!"  (along with a host of other rather unflattering names and slurs.)  I mean, I think she may be imagining people?

And, I turned back around and the girl was still standing there with me.  She had just stopped (usually everyone is in such a hurry to get home) and just kept this warm smile on her face watching the lady with me.  It was such a truly genuine beautiful smile.  She wasn't beautiful like in the way of photoshopped perfection you see online.  She was a better kind of beautiful.  She glowed.  And, she looked at me and then looked up at the sky and she said, "Well, it's getting kinda dark.  Would you like for me to stand here with you so you're not scared?"  And, I looked at her in her eyes and she was being completely sincere.  I explained that I would be fine even though I kinda wanted her to keep standing there, because I was so drawn to her light, kindness, and warmth.  And, I needed it.  Perhaps to reignite my own dimmed light.  And, in an ultimate act of kindness as I stood there shivering, she took off her gloves and asked me if I needed them.  I politely declined and she smiled again and said, "well, I'm heading to my warm car and won't need them."  I asked for her name and she said "Dannie!  What's yours?"  I told her my name and thanked her for her kindness.  And, then she turned around one last time and said, "I'm sorry I've already forgotten your name."  And, that's when I knew she was me...or who I'm supposed to be.  Let me explain.

And, I'm telling you this because it was just us alone on this train deck - not a single soul around (aside from the woman possibly suffering from schizophrenia who had eventually walked away to start crying in a bus stop and you could hear her faint whimpers).  And, I think after recent life experiences and being let down by own expectations of humanity, God was showing me a reflection of me and who I am and who I am supposed to be to the world.  Dannie, thanks for the reminder!  Dannie said she always takes this same train, but I've never seen her before.  I've been taking this train for roughly 10 months and am a professional people watcher!  She was a great illustrative example of the light I'm supposed to shine.

And, now to the sentiments I wanted to share.  Everyone has a vice, and everyone has a toxic trait, if not many.  To say you don't have either is simply lying to yourself.  We are all toxic in some way.  But, the key point here is to recognize it and work on it.  We are all unfinished.  Vices.  As I said, everyone has one.  Also, everyone has a chapter they don't read out loud.  Today I spoke with one of my closest friends.  Believe it or not, we met on, a dating website, and have remained friends to this day.  Our best memories of living in South Carolina are each other and the fun times we had.  Today he told me that he is one year sober.  And, I wish I was closer to be able to celebrate with a nice dinner and walk on the beach and maybe a shot of bourbon wit a lime twist.  Just kidding.  We started talking about vices and then weaknesses, and I realized one of my greatest setbacks or vulnerabilities is that I walk into situations assuming everyone was raised like me.  My Achilles' tendon/heal is my own expectations.  It's actually called an anchoring bias.  I'll let you look it up, but it effects how one judges stimuli.  And, it really goes without saying that the past few years have made it really hard dealing with this susceptibility.  

Seriously, though my expectations are very low.  I'm basically like, "please just be a decent person," and I can't seem to find that.  Is it just me who has recently succumbed to, "wow, what a cesspool of shit this world has become?"  I mean frankly in a relationship, I'm one of the most low maintenance females I know.  For the most part, I do not like to be smothered and enjoy my space and alone time.  Make me laugh - and that is a huge bonus.  Inspire me, even better.  But, I ask that you don't lie to me and that you keep promises, plans, and commitments.  And, it's laughable how hard it is to find that these days.  People are too busy trying to psychoanalyze everyone instead of just being a genuinely good person and practicing love.  I mean it's really sad, if it wasn't so funny.  Emotional intelligence has become a rarity.  Dating for me has been reduced to:  Spending 4-6 weeks in someone's company to glean why they're single in the first place.

But, here's the thing.  Things could be worse than to be let down by my own expectations.  Granted, I'm blessed that I'm in a position not to ever have to settle: I'm independent and self-sufficient.  The worst thing is I could very well be them - pardoned by the world!  And, it's okay to be like "Just because the world acts like monsters...nah, that ain't for me."  And what a miserable place to be in - to be them.  Because the way people treat you has nothing to do with you.  It's a reflection of how they feel about themselves.  If you don't love yourself, there's absolutely no way to love another.  If you don't respect yourself, you can't respect others.  Period.

So, please don't let the dullness in others take away your shine.  You deserve to be filled the same way you pour.  Keep loving and keep shining.  What's meant for you will find it's way.  Just relax, and enjoy the trip.  Fortunately for me, I live in a large city that was just ranked #3 as best dating in the USA.  Meaning, if a guy treats like shit, believe it.  Shrug it of, get back on the saddle (after you've shined your boots of course).  The ladies are in the driver’s seat with so many single men in Denver!  Oh this reminds me of a quick joke:  “I had someone of a religious breakup…yeah, he thought he was God and I didn’t.”

Lastly, don’t forget to smile.  I know it causes wrinkles but it’s beautiful.  Focus on the Dannies in the world and that radiance and energy will start a whole damn fire!  It's contagious.
