  1. From a farmer..... Yep… that’s my boy, sound asleep, in my lap, on the tractor, while I move hay. Recently we’ve taken some scrutiny from social media insinuating that we are placing Sam in harm’s way by allowing him to participate in farm activities. Some people have been a little more pointed in their comments that maybe Tara and I are too stupid to realize the danger of certain situations. These comments come mostly from snowflakes that don’t really have a clue what our lifestyle is about. I’m only going to address this once so here goes. First off, Tara and I are educated. I’ve been an emergency room provider for 10 years and have seen all manner of injury. Tara is an RN and we’ve shared the same ER. We’ve seen harm inflicted from farm equipment, animals, guns, knives, etc. I understand the inherent risks of living the lifestyle we lead. It does not go unnoticed. We do the best we can to mitigate the risks while still allowing him to be center stage in the things he wants to partake in. I want my son to grow up included. It isn’t the easiest scenario. He gets into things. When he’s included, tasks take longer. I have to schedule potty breaks. Meals have to be more routine. There are tons of things that make including him more difficult. It doesn’t matter though… IT’S WORTH IT! In today’s society it’s okay to hypnotize your child with an IPad. It’s okay to let them stare blindly at a screen for hours with no interaction. It’s okay to rely on a nanny to raise your kids for you. And suddenly it isn’t okay to let your children grow up playing outside, getting dirty, scraping their knees, getting bit by ants, and just plain being curious little ones? Because we are parents that include our child in our day to day lives we are the ones that are irresponsible? Don’t think so! We are teaching our son to grow up and be a MAN! We are doing our best to instill the values in him that are so lacking in this broken country that we live in. God willing, Sam will take the things he’s learned out here and be the kind of man that will look you in the eye and shake your hand with a grip you won’t forget. The kind of man that you can depend on. The kind of man that this country was built on. The kind of man that is becoming a forgotten relic of the past in this soft society that we live in. I am not sorry for including Sam in farm duties. I am not sorry for letting him experience life with the bumps and bruises that go along with it. I am not sorry for demanding that he pick himself up, shake off the dirt, and get back after it. What I am sorry for is this participation trophy, weak wristed, complacent society that he has to grow up in. A society that rests its future on backs of men like I am trying to raise my son to be.
  2. The only thing worse than the numbers is your sad interpretation of them. I guess math & logic weren’t your strong suits. Yes, Florida numbers are spiking in this second wave, but in the big picture comparison the DEATH RATE IN NEW YORK is still 8 times higher for comparable populations. In this wave, the age demographic getting sick is much younger in both States and death rates are down. The difference which you still fail to comprehend was, in the first wave, Florida protected the older age groups while NY threw them to the dogs.
  3. Florida shatters coronavirus records with almost 15,300 new cases The staggering single-day number comes as Florida is finding itself at the center of the country's new surge, with cases and deaths continuing to rise. Florida shattered previous records for any state's biggest single-day recording of new coronavirus cases on Sunday, announcing almost 15,300 new cases. The state added 15,299 cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus, to its constantly-rising total, outpacing New York's previous daily record by more than 3,000. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/florida-shatters-coronavirus-records-almost-15-300-new-cases-n1233609

  5. “ It's not the police who need to be retrained, it's the public. We have grown into a mouthy, cell phone wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of 'it's the other person's fault', 'you owe me'. A society where children grow up with no boundaries or knowledge or concern for civil society and personal responsibility. When an officer says "Put your hands up," then put your hands up! Don't reach for something in your pocket, your lap, your seat. There's plenty of reason for a police officer to feel threatened, there have been multiple assaults and ambushes on police officers lately. Comply with requests from the officer, have your day in court. Don't mouth off, or fight, or refuse to comply... that escalates the situation. Police officers are our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. They're black, white, brown, all colors, all ethnicities, all faiths, male and female, they are us. They see the worst side of humanity... the raped children, the bloody mangled bodies of traffic victims, the bruised and battered victims of domestic violence, homicide victims, body parts... day after day. They work holidays while we have festive meals with our families. They miss school events with their kids, birthdays, anniversaries, all those special occasions that we take for granted. They work in all types of weather, under dangerous conditions, for relatively low pay. They have extensive training, but they are human. When there are numerous attacks on them, they become hyper vigilant for a reason, they have become targets. When a police officer encounters any person... any person, whether at a traffic stop, a street confrontation, an arrest, whatever... that situation has the potential to become life threatening. You, Mr & Mrs/Miss Civilian, also have the responsibility of keeping the situation from getting out of control. Many, the majority, of law enforcement officers are Veterans. They've been in service to this nation most of their lives, whether on the battlefield or protecting us here at home. They are the only thing that stands between us and anarchy in the streets. If you want to protect your child, teach them respect... for themselves, for you as a parent, for their teachers, for police officers. Police officers do not make the laws, they merely enforce them. If you don't like the law, be proactive in the political process. The police officer doesn't have, or want, the role of judge and jury. If you get a speeding ticket... were you speeding? Don't blame the cop if you broke the law. Go to court, pay the fine, don't do it again. It's easy to judge, it's harder to look within oneself and see what your role should be as a citizen, as a responsible person seeing both sides of the issue. All lives matter, Blue lives matter, too!"
  6. “ When the economy was growing and times were good, the Trudeau Liberals ran deficits and racked up nearly $100 billion in new debt. That would have been enough to pay for nearly half of all pandemic spending.“ “ One trillion dollars. A one with twelve zeroes after it. A thousand billion dollars. It’s where Canada’s federal debt is heading in the next half year. We all knew the number was going to be jaw-dropping, but it turned out to be even worse than even the most pessimistic predictions. On March 27, the Parliamentary Budget Office estimated this year’s federal deficit would hit $112 billion. By April 30, that estimate had jumped to $252 billion. But when Finance Minister Bill Morneau revealed his ‘fiscal snapshot’ this week, the deficit had ballooned to a whopping $343 billion. That means our existing $775 billion federal debt will now increase by over 40% in a single year. That will put it well over a trillion dollars for the first time.“ https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/wudrick-trudeau-spent-the-rainy-day-fund-back-when-the-sun-was-shining
  7. Conrad Black: The Liberals are failing us on many fronts. “ As a country, and as a species, we have to emancipate ourselves from the paralytic fear that has reduced us to inert moles and snitches, a pitiable condition that the federal government has endlessly encouraged. It is hard to be precise about these things but amongst the 80 per cent of comparatively risk-free Canadians the fatality rate of the coronavirus is approximately one in 20,000, a statistical insignificance. Even among those in the 20 per cent who are more vulnerable, the fatality rate is not much more than one in 1,000; our overall death rate, 237 per million people, is lower than all other large advanced countries that publish credible numbers except Australia, Japan and Germany.” “ I have examined my soul thoroughly and found much fault, which I repent appropriately, but I deny the country is systemically racist. There is racism, in institutions and individuals, but it is rare in anyone of authority in the “system,” despised when revealed, and in steady and terminal decline. The problem is we are falsely accusing ourselves of heinous shortcomings and failing to make our way in a Darwinian world. If we do not build and strengthen our own country sensibly, we will be resistless against those who compete with us. The Kielbergers (and the Trudeaus) disdain materialism, though they do not eschew its benefits personally, and materialism determines peoples’ living standards. If this crew doesn’t rediscover the purpose of government, it won’t be personing the regime even to the end of the present (minority) term. We do not deserve the government we are now receiving.“ https://nationalpost.com/opinion/conrad-black-the-liberals-are-failing-us-on-many-fronts
  8. One has to wonder how many other Liberals are siphoning off $$$ from the WE organization?...otherwise know as the Trudeau slush fund. ” Finance Minister Bill Morneau did not recuse himself from the Liberal cabinet's consideration of a $19.5 million contract for WE Charity, despite the involvement of two of his immediate family members in the charity — one of them as a paid contract employee.“ “ Another member of the Trudeau government has family connections to the WE organization. Clare Morneau, one of the daughters of Finance Minister Bill Morneau, spoke at WE Day Ottawa on November 9, 2016, when she was 17 years old. A Toronto Star profile at the time described her as “Craig Kielburger in a kilt.” Asked if she was paid to speak at that or any other WE event, WE Charity tells Canadaland, “No, Clare Morneau was never paid.” Another daughter of Morneau is a current employee of WE Charity. Grace Acan, who became part of the Morneau family after they sponsored her coming to Canada from northern Uganda in 2010, “started at WE in August 2019 as a coordinator on ME to WE Trips and in March 2020, she transitioned to the WE Schools team as a coordinator,” according to the charity. Clare Morneau also enjoyed the support of WE co-founder Marc Kielburger when she published her first book in 2016. The cover of Kakuma Girls: Sharing Stories of Hardship and Hope from Kakuma Refugee Camp includes a blurb by Kielburger, describing it as “An inspiring portrait of African girl refugees by a passionate 17-year-old Canadian dedicated to positive change.” https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/we-charity-contract-morneau-1.5644839
  9. A Fall election becoming more likely by the day.. Bloc Leader Wants Trudeau To Step Aside For Freeland Amid WE Scandal “ This could be a big deal. If Trudeau loses the support of the Bloc, that leaves him with the NDP only. But after allowing Trudeau to keep Parliament shut for most of the summer, Jagmeet Singh has been increasingly aggressive in attacking Trudeau from the left, claiming Trudeau has done less on ‘police reform’ than Donald Trump. In his arrogance, Trudeau appears to have forgotten that the Canadian People took away much of his power in the last campaign, and a strengthened Opposition could take away the rest of it by demanding he take a hike.“ https://www.durhamradionews.com/archives/127873

  12. “ PM's mother Margaret and brother Alexandre were both paid to speak at WE Charity events“ Margaret Trudeau received $250,000 in honoraria; Alexandre Trudeau was paid about $32,000 https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5643586
  13. The number keeps growing...Trudeau government loses 34,000 ordered deported. “ Canada has a strong immigration system, and we ensure that the rules are applied,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said with a straight face on Wednesday.” https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/lilley-trudeau-government-loses-34000-ordered-deported

  16. The same trend is happening in Florida. “ Japan’s capital city reported a record daily rise of coronavirus cases on Thursday, Reuters reported, registering 224 new Covid-19 infections approximately one month after Japan lifted a state of emergency. Roughly 80% of the new coronavirus cases reported in Tokyo in the last 24 hours were among people aged 30-years-old or younger, according to Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.“ https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/08/coronavirus-live-updates.html
