Potentially a Death Sentence

‘Potentially a death sentence’: White House goes off on vaccine fear mongers (msn.com)

The Republican party has been spreading BS for decades. But, the past five or six years, it has been mass BS. It has got spread like a farmer with a gigantic, stinking verbal manure spreader. They have BS dripping from their mouths with every breath.

The Republicans Party now has a problem. The winds of change are blowing all that BS back down their necks, they are covered with it, just like a farmer spreading manure the wrong way in the wind.

Let us pray that the new highly contagious Delta variant does not kill many people. The country has lost many lives because people did not want the government telling them to wear a mask or get a shot.

Life should be more precious than politics, lies, egos and BS.

A Land of Immigrants

The immigrants attending that first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Rock must have played nice with the local Indians. Good first impressions are what much of this world got built around.

One person’s modern day immigration viewpoint.

Many of the early wealthy landlords grabbed vast acres of land, far too much for them to farm themselves, so they brought in slaves from Africa.

When my ancestors arrived in the Dakota Territory to claim their free land in the 1880s, the local Indians were pissed, not as receptive as the tribe at Plymouth Rock. They said, “their new neighbors spoke with forked tongues and trust did not exist.” Indians got placed on reservations. Their land was given to the new stampede of immigrants. A lot of tribes in the Dakotas felt betrayed. They explained that to General Custer and his men explicitly.

After the battle of the Little Bighorn, Army troops arrived in huge numbers. A lot of the Indians got killed by the Cavalry others rounded up and shipped to different areas of the country, forced to leave their sacred land. The railroads had been completed going east, so that’s the direction many of the Indians got sent.

Dakota Territory 1866

“2019 marked the 150th anniversary of the completion of America’s first transcontinental railroad. Between 1863 and 1869, two companies built a rail line across the United States. Union Pacific, starting from Council Bluffs, Iowa, built west, laying more than a thousand miles of rail; Central Pacific, starting from Sacramento, California, built east, laying nearly seven hundred miles of track. On May 10, 1869, work crews from the two companies met in the Utah desert at Promontory Summit to link their rails and hammer home the final spikes.” “The labor of Chinese workers was instrumental to the transcontinental railroad’s construction. At any given time, between ten thousand and twelve thousand Chinese workers were employed on the project, largely by Central Pacific.”

The newly arrived immigrants from all over Europe traveled West by rail and covered wagons. A huge productive land got formed by hard work, suffering, and faith. The rich valleys of California grew outstanding crops, far more than there were Harvesters to gather. So Mexican field workers got brought in. Most lived a pitiful existence working long hours in the hot sun.

The United States is a grand experiment. Immigrants from all over the world can come to live in Freedom, and everyone should have equal rights. That was the plan. Now we must protect it from greedy people with evil ambitions.

Independence Day

This 4th of July, let us all be mindful of our Freedom and Liberty in this great land.

On January 6th, 2021, our country almost fell to the control of a wanna-be, power-hungry dictator. The brave security workers of the capitol police force turned back a vicious mob of insurrectionists.

It is almost July 4th, 2021, and many senators in the republican-controlled senate refuse to admit anything out of the ordinary happened on January 6th. They will not honor the oath they took as Senators of the United States of America. Some should be removed from office, prosecuted, and serve time in jail.

A power-crazy group of politicians has divided the nation with lies, fear, and intimidation. They have become professional at using a term called “Gaslighting.” They turn everything around to take control of the other persons mind.

They use their Freedom of speech to spread lies, while trying to destroy the electoral system, nothing could be worse, it is unconscionable.

Who knows the truth? Only the LIAR!

A Message for the GOP

Duck or chicken egg.

Would you eat an egg with a baby duck or chicken in it?

Balut is a Filipino term for a fertilized developing egg embryo boiled and eaten from the shell. It gets commonly sold as street food in South China and Southeast Asian countries: notably Cambodia and Vietnam.

I had an uncle in the U S Army who fought for peace in South East Asia in the 1940s and survived the Bataan Death March. He said the native Filipinos endangered themselves by tossing eggs to those marching past. “He had never eaten a raw egg with a little chicken in it.” He believed later, eating those raw eggs is what kept Him alive. Many of the soldiers starved to death during that death march.

My uncle Kenneth later fought in the Korean War so the South Korean people could remain free. He’s not alive anymore, which is probably a good thing. He would be shocked and certainly outraged by what is happening in this country today.

I served in South East Asia in the 1960s to stop those countries from falling like dominoes to communism.

Our politician who never served in the military must love communism, they now use America’s FREE speech rights to spread lies, creating doubt and fear while trying to overthrow our government.

The radicals who do not like our government and the election process should pack their bags and move to Russia. Putin will tell them what to do, as Trump is doing now. They are a disgrace to the free human race!

Bataan Death March

Forcible Transfer

The Bataan Death March was the forcible transfer by the Imperial Japanese Army of 60,000–80,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war from Saysain Point, Bagac, Bataan, and Mariveles to Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac, via San Fernando, Pampanga, where the prisoners got loaded onto trains. The transfer began on April 9, 1942, after the three-month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II. The total distance marched from Mariveles to San Fernando and from the Capas Train Station to Camp O’Donnell is variously reported by differing sources as between 60 and 69.6 miles. Differing sources also say widely differing prisoner of war casualties before reaching Camp O’Donnell: 5,000 to 18,000 Filipino deaths and 500 to 650 American deaths during the march. The march got characterized by severe physical abuse and wanton killings. After the war, the Japanese commander, General Masaharu Homma and two of his officers were tried in the United States military commissions for failing to prevent their subordinates from committing war crimes.

Memorial Day

My great-grandfather Ole Olson-Hoel left his family in the Dakota Territory with his brother Simon near Lake Poinsett in 1906. He went with his brother Eston and his family and were joined by a few other families. The Wagon Train grew as they headed for North Dakota.

They tried farming in the Rice Lake area near Rider North Dakota where many died from Scarlet Fever. A cemetery got located on a small hill north east of Rice Lake. Drought conditions and hunger forced them to continue North into Canada. The only land left to Homestead was in Alberta.

Pioneer Cemetery in North Dakota.


The Antillans were Eston’s wife’s parents.

The family settled in a wilderness area north of what became Rocky Mountain House Alberta. Esten Olson died in 1911 and a cemetery got started on John Olson’s land.

Ole’s funeral in 1925.
There were no roads yet, travel was not easy. There was no church building, people met to worship in homes. It appears a picnic was enjoyed at the cemetery.
The Green Valley cemetery got vandalized in the wilderness. The graves remain there

but a monument was later placed in town.

Bipartisan Commissions

From Trump’s first day in office, news he did not like got labeled fake news. This fake news plan continued for four years. He brainwashed his supporters into believing the news media was the enemy and picked on him with fake news. He was preparing them for the big lie if he lost the election to the radical, socialistic democrats. He must have planned all along to declare the election got stolen from him. His lies to divide and conquer the nation should be considered a Treasonous Act.

Treason – Wikipedia

The republican party had the FBI investigate doctor Martin Luther King Jr, and a bipartisan commission was formed in Congress to investigated him for treason and communist activities.

On January 6th, 2021, the nation’s capital got attacked to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. The Republican Party does not want to have a bipartisan commission formed now to investigate that takeover of the nation’s capital.

It looks like we may have already lost our government to radicals who use lies to control all political power. They are committing treason while using their rights of free speech. That is as low as a U.S. politician can go. Some should be tried for treason and lose their citizenships. They pretend to be political public servants. The elected officials who continue to perpetuate the lies are just as guilty as the originator of the BIG LIE.
