Every day these days is an adventure in America and its “exceptionalism” where Robert E, Lee, Stonewall Jackson and George Washington are ogres while AOC, Omar and “whoever” are the bright shining lights of the truly “new” world that Christopher Columbus is now discredited for discovering.
When I was trying to become a chip off the old block many decades ago one of the learned things (at least down South) was a respect for one’s elders as well as understanding the value of the elders’ life’s experiences. Fast forwarding to the present it is amazing the disrepute that age, experience and the concomitant wisdom has fallen into.
This is reflected sometimes at the personal level, but, as well, often in the mass networking of meaningless trivia that is almost worshiped. I suspect it has something to do with the integration of cultures. But that is another story for another day.
One of the most glaring examples today is in a profession people once had high regard for –within a margin of error for the few charlatans –medicine. The sad decline of doctors (and nurses) into the political squalor today is featureless as well as dangerous. But, as they say, it is a free country—perhaps?
Today, the medical “community” (everybody today is part of some damn trade-work “community,” it seems) appears to be split almost as if they were political parties. And, as it is today, one party is mostly right and the other is mostly wrong.

This of course, to some folks, is a clear reflection of that monster of stupidity, “affirmative action” and its breeding stock of egalitarianism, racial-identity-denial, sexual denial, etc.
And, of course, the nonsensical university academic prophets of the venal vernacular. This is the crew who maintain a certain socialistic patois that is worshiped as if written by the authors of heavenly truth supported with angelic editors. The truth is, most universities turn out academic slop. However, borrow enough money from the government and the “truth-slop” is yours. Not only that but Jack and Jill will return from college, heavily in debt, and more mindless than when they left. This is part of what may be called “American Exceptionalism” goes to college.
I don’t need the help of a yapping government wrapping itself in red, white and blue while it robs me blind under a crush of taxes and self-serving bureaus, fed and led by lawyers-by-the-dozen—make that the DAMN dozen! And now we have the political doctors mugging for the cameras telling us about things they probably never studied with any degree of expertise such as chemistry or thermodynamics. What most know about mask efficacy could be printed on an Antifa sweatshirt.
I wash my hands and brush my teeth more than once a day, just like anyone who was taught by a wholesome and loving Mama and Daddy.
But what I don’t do is wear a porous stupid mask, social distance or pick up dog crap and put it in tiny plastic bags (do these idiots with their little plastic bags realize how many coons, possums, feal cats—not to mention squirrels, birds and an occasional coyote dump in their over-green yards). Have they ever been to a farm or ranch?
And most of all I don’t waste my time talking with fools who want to discuss such of the above nonsense typically trafficked verbally, daily.
I don’t listen to government bureaucrats who give orders as if they were God. Cowards, sissies and feminine male-wannabes listen to such. If people choose stupidity over good sense and mindful awareness then so be it. But stay away from me if you don’t mind. Or even if you do mind.
For those who choose to stick their head in the fire, then do it. I ain’t gonna!
I’m an old guy now, and I don’t give two hoots in hell about the so-called government “of, by and for the people.” I don’t care because it does not exist. It is nothing but hole-in-the-wall called Washington D.C. The land of monsters that George Orwell could not even pretend to imagine during his dabbling in futuristic evils of that which he called, euphemistically, Big Brother.
Well, I had a real big brother and he was a man. That crowd in Washington are not men. They are not even women. They are tyrants. And they are best thought of by a man who visualized such when he fired a warning shot a century and a half ago: Sic Semper Tyrannis. He was so greatly angered by the despotic evils fostered upon his country, that he screamed. And tragedy resulted.
Keep pushing, you tyrants. There are still a few good men out here.
Semper Fi and Deo Vindice.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
