The reality of ignoring the Oath of Office and the Constitution.

Oath of Office

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Apparently using FACTUAL historical occurrences for comparison is no longer allowed.

The basic summary that you have probably already read by now is that Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian by Disney for making what Twitter and the media called an “abhorrent” and “antisemitic” post to her Instagram. However… She didn’t.

Gina Carano’s post.

What she did post was the TRUTH. It is historical FACT that the Nazi’s turned their own citizens against the Jews. It is historical FACT that German neighbors turned in Jewish neighbors. It is historical FACT that neighbors beat and killed their own Jewish neighbors. …


Nu-Skool Technical Writing beats old school Technical Writing.

The difference is night and day. For an example, I’d read technical writing from Google over say…. Microsoft. The Google writing is very conversational and makes you feel like you are being spoken to by a person in the room. Microsoft documentation goes back to that cold, official, stand-offish, here is the information for you to digest. (In both of these cases I looked at the cloud documentation.) If you want your readers to take the knowledge then give it to them as they would understand it.

Most places use the dull, drab, cold and formal documentation that no one…


Making it through childhood when bullies are a daily reality.

This piece is directed at those in school dealing with bullies and/or the parents and teachers of a child who is on the receiving end of the torment.

Middle School was literal hell for me. My Mom got a job in Atlanta and we moved here from a small town of about 1400 people in Nebraska. The schools were different. The people were different. Life was different. I was a fish out of water and just hoped that I could fit in.

On my first day in school, a girl…


Getting along with one another can be done.

We see the divisions daily. One group of people wants to force another group of people to think, feel, or believe as they do. Then a war of words breaks out. Social media becomes the 21st Century battleground. Others take note, then cancellation is waiting in the wings for someone over an opinion.

We don’t need to let these “disputes” get out of control and then go into the state of an all out flame war. We could simply see the differences between us, recognize that difference is fundamental, and respect one another by shaking hands and going forward.

MeWe has become my go-to site.

As a social media site, MeWe has some really great ideals and features going for it. From a users Privacy Bill of Rights, to a chronological order in the stream with no algorithm manipulation, to posting, chatting, calling, and a high engagement for content. Full Disclosure: I bought the monthly subscription (You don’t need to) of $4.99 to support them because on this site, I’m not the one who is being sold to an advertising firm. I respect that.


When the media puts ads before ethics, we all lose.

I think for me… The Information Age is dead. Just scrolling through news headlines this morning, I could point out one after the other that was just false. The rest were written like tabloid fodder you would find on a 90’s supermarket check out shelf. I truly have no trust in the media anymore.

I’ve said for a long time, all the way back to G+, that the cycle the media takes is pure BS. I first noticed this in tech news, then breaking news, then political news, and now all news.

Just because someone doesn’t like your way of writing, doesn’t make it wrong.

Writing is 100% subjective to the reader. Really anything to do in an artistic field is 100% subjective to those observing it. You can’t please everyone. That’s just a fact. Go read through Amazon book reviews and on quite a lot you will see that if you get a 50% positive to a 50% negative then you’re probably doing pretty good. It’s not just politics where the people disagree with each other. It’s pretty much everything.

Sometimes a writer needs to hear this. Too often we get all wrapped up in someone’s critical response or needless editorial. That’s not to…


From industry speak to plain old power tripping… The Tech Industry is full of themselves.

I recently watched this video on tech terms and jargon being used in tech companies and I kind of wanted to just hide away somewhere and cringe. There’s a litany of “techie words” used to replace normal words in the English language. Honestly, hearing techies speak is almost like reading mouse type on a sweepstakes mailer. I’m sorry, but could you translate your nonsense please?

I got to thinking about how these techies were using language and it actually makes perfect sense when you factor in the superiority complex taking place in the tech industry right now. Company after company…


Step one to fight Cancel Culture is to STOP using Twitter.

Cancel Culture is a virus worse than Covid-19. It was created by the left and the left has lost control of it. Now all people who step out of line are candidates to be canceled. Cancel Culture thrives on social media but nowhere more so than on Twitter.

Twitter is the epicenter to Cancel Culture — by Jason Falter

Twitter is the epicenter to Cancel Culture because all of the brands use it. The politicians use it. The media uses it exclusively. When the radical far left mob sets their sites on their next victim to cancel, they can get it trending, and then all of these groups that are using…
