America’s Teens At Risk

March 25, 2023

Teenage Mental Health.

A Fox News report (ref) on 3/14/23 indicated that the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (A 2021 Youth Risk Behavior Survey) reported that 57% of U.S. teen girls “felt persistently sad or hopeless in 2021.” This was double that measure for boys and the highest level reported in over a decade.

Furthermore: “While all teens reported increasing mental health challenges, experiences of violence, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, girls faired worse than boys across nearly all measures”. More than 40% of high school teens said they were “so sad or hopeless that they could not engage in their normal activities for at least two weeks.”

Of Teen students who identified “as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or questioning, 52% had recently suffered poor mental health” and 22% had attempted suicide in the past.

A “stark increase in harmful experiences among teen girls” was noted.
Almost 18% “experienced sexual violence in the past year”, an increase of 20% since 2017. Nearly 30% of girls “had seriously considered about attempting suicide”, an increase of close to 60% from a decade ago. Almost 15% said they were forced to have sex, an increase of 27% since 2019.

This news, that was also reported by other more liberal sources should be terrifying to all Americans. These traumas and resulting psychological problems are very difficult to treat and recover from.

These teens are destined to be America’s future parents and leaders in little more than 10 short.

Vote accordingly!

Where Do They Go Potty?

April 25, 2019

Where Do They Go Potty?

I tried to explain the social and environmental harm that radical liberal policies were doing to San Francisco to a friend . He was skeptical of my assessment. I told him that I had read an article that documented the concerns of San Francisco business leaders that these radical liberal changes were damaging to national and international commerce there.

My friend could not believe that the city he had visited in the past could ever loose its wonderful charm and not continue to a prime convention/vacation attraction.

I had been to San Francisco on two occasions for professional conferences. My first visit was around 30 years ago and I loved that “City by the Bay”. I did notice people living on side-streets in what appeared to be large cardboard boxes; and could not avoid being in the proximity of a couple of raving schizophrenic men. At a trolley stop a psychotic man rapidly approached me, stopped about 12 inches from me, screamed something in my face and was gone as quickly as he had arrived. I was stunned and shaken by the experience, but recovered quickly and continued to enjoy my stay.

I fell in love with San Francisco.

About ten years later, I returned for another convention and I found that the city streets had gotten much worse.  I stayed in a hotel about three city blocks from the convention hotel and walked back and forth a time or two daily. At first I was shocked by the pan handlers running up to me and following me during each of my walks back and forth. It did not take long before I learned not to look at them, or utter a word to them as they followed me begging for money. They came uncomfortably close to me as I pep-stepped along and they shadowed me with raised voices for 10 or 15 yards before they “peeled-off” their pursuit, often to zero in on another hapless pedestrian. I was younger and quite capable of defending my self, if need be. But, I felt sorry for the female pedestrians, few of which would have been as self-confident under those circumstances.

Citizens of America must realize the horrific results of decades of Radical Liberal Big City Government politics, after their decades in power and control.

And you can be sure it will only get worse.


Now, think about it.

Don’t you wonder where all of those street people go potty?

See for yourself. Then vote accordingly!

166 Trump Accomplishments: Against All Odds!

December 22, 2017

166 Trump Accomplishments: Against All Odds!

The proof is always in the accomplishments. B.S. walks, accomplishments “talk”!

I am reading the book, “Let Trump Be Trump”. It is a detailed description of how Trump won the Presidency (against all odds). The book also provides a clear description of the many components of his complex personality and the complex ways ways in which he pursues goals and manages problems.

It is easy to take a “slim slice” of his behavior (negatives or positives) and assume that this is what Trump’s personal make-up really is. But, upon careful study (Read “Let Trump be Trump”) one discovers, a vast repertoire of President Donald Trump’s skills and inherent abilities. 

He can be pompous or self-demeaning (not often the later), crude, crass and mean as a snake; forgiving or vengeful, kind and courteous, callous or warm-hearted; generous and stingy, indulging and dismissive, loyal or quick to terminate loyalty; he can be “hawkish” or “dovish”…and much more.

People often zero- in on the parts of Trump that they like, or the parts that they dislike, and ignore the other parts. This “cherry picking” method will determine whether someone hates Trump or loves Trump.

This is either a bad mistake, or it an example of scurrilous dishonesty.

I very much dislike some parts of Trump’s personality. I very much like other parts.

However, the only thing that matters to me (unless serious provable crimes are proven), are the results he is able to produce.

Many have asserted that he is not a conservative, but his accomplishments are almost purely conservative.

Therefore, Constitutional conservatives will be overjoyed and progressive-socialist liberals will be rendered apoplectic or overwhelmed with angst. 

Because the liberals are so often disdainful of a solid traditional moral code, they will do virtually anything they can think of to get rid of Trump; a Presidential conservative tower-of-power.

Actually, none of that matters!

All that really matters is: Do President Trump’s accomplishments make America safer, stronger, and more likely to survive the world-forces that are trying to destroy us….Or not!?

Just as importantly: Do President Trump’s accomplishments make America safer, stronger and more likely to survive our internal social and “deep state” governmental socialist/communist, Islamic Jihadist, and anarchist forces bent on transforming us into an Unconstitutional socialist society…Or not?!

So far (and that is the proviso), clear-headed American Constitutional patriots should love what he has accomplished!

 I ask you to take time to review the following amazing list of the Trump administration’s accomplishments.

Of course, you may not agree that all of these accomplishments are good for America.

But unless you are blinded by an ideology incompatible with our survival; you must agree that Trump is, thus far, exactly what is needed in an American President at this moment in America’s life-span. 

Much as other of our imperfect presidents were exactly what was needed in their times (Washington, Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Reagan), for examples. 

Please take time to study the following and then vote accordingly.

Wake-Up America!
