April 6, 2019 - Continuing the celebration of my birthday, we took to Facebook Live to investigate the titular question. Could it be illegal immigration or Identity politics? Could it be socialism or Red Flag laws? Maybe drugs? Or something completely different? What do you think?

Having seen a growing number of text, tweets, and Facebook posts talking about lowering the age to vote to 16, we decided to discuss this. How do you feel about this? Do you trust 16 yr olds with you life and finances? Can someone with little or no life experience influence your freedoms and choices? Do you trust their unfinished basic education to be enough?

Global Cooling. Global Warming. Climate Change. Whatever title it has been given over the decades, the core thought is the same. As said by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, "A #GreenNewDeal is a common sense, moral solution to fix these issues with the urgency they demand." But the noted environmentalist who had the Obama Administration spend $150 billion in tax dollars on Climate Change has a very different opinion.

February 7, 2019 - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is unveiling her $7 trillion Green New Deal, and the details are eye opening. From replacing the electric grid to eliminating gas powered cars, all at the cost of freedom of choice and the US economy. It even stretches to create union jobs, a living wage, Medicare for All, each in the name of climate change and renewable energy. But does it make any sense? Is it even possible? What about China, India, and the 3rd world? Who is Rep. Ocasio-Cortez really trying to help?

In a surprise that wasn't, Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed on Feb 5, 2019, that New York State had lost $2.3 billion in tax revenues. A culmination of the efforts to enforce the path to a Progressive capital in the nation. While Cuomo tried to deflect the cause, it cannot be denied that bad economic policy coupled with demands that public comply or leave the State is the cause. We highlight the reality that led to this falling domino of consequence, sure to be followed by many more.

Live on WNBF on January 22, 2019 (verbatim) - Known Progressive activist Matt Ryan called in to demand investigation of where Covington students got MAGA hats (not recorded). He stated the hats justify the public attack on the students, and implied this was an indoctrination. This is challenged by political commentator Michael "Vass" Vasquez - and other callers - highlighting the compulsion by denial of choices Progressives are advocating. Ryan then called back, attacking intelligence of students and doubling down on call of indoctrination because he does not like their views. What do you think about this?

Jan. 21, 2019 - Binghamton NY - Gillette has made a clear case that they think men are an intrinsic problem for humanity - thus quoting toxic masculinity? But what does that mean? And why should we accept their definition of men over any other definition?

Egard Watches: https://youtu.be/x_HL0wiK4Zc

Men make up 93 percent of workplace fatalities. Men represent more than 97 percent of war fatalities. 79 percent of homicide victims are male. Men make up 80 percent of suicide victims. 75 percent of homeless people are men.

Sometimes there is a great reason why the internet focuses on a single issue or event. In this case it is Gillette (owned by Proctor & Gamble), and an ad attacking their customer base. To say that this caught our attention is an understatement.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has run through several excuses on why the State of the Union cannot happen on January 29th. Each reason refuted but the one left unsaid. That this is political and embarrasses the Democrats. She should be honest, but like funding the border wall, that won't happen.

The 2019 NY State of the State Address left a lot to be desired for anyone outside the small elitist circle of Democrat Socialists. While this prep for the 2020 election was red meat for donors, the rest of NY was chilled by the promise of high taxes, mismanagement, and resctive policies killing Rights.
