About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Federal Government Regulations that saved tens of thousands of lives began..6/30/77

Thirty Nine Years ago yesterday, Brock Adams, Secretary of Transportation with Jimmy Carter's approval and support, announced that by 1984 all cars must be equipped with either seat belts or air bags...While there was some discussion and argument about this, since it was so far into the future, it was assumed it would not be of consequence..More than enough time for car manufacturers to make the arrangements..Other safety requirements followed: crumple zones, additional lights on cars, (side lights and a funny light in back window) seat belts in front and back, shoulder harnesses, and eventually air bags on both sides of the car..and more...

Republicans were against additional regulations but it was accepted. (far into the future)

In 1979..a few years before the mandate took effect...51093 were killed on United States highways.

In 2014, approximately 32,500 were killed on United States highways..40 percent reduction in deaths with 50 percent greater population in the country and millions more cars and trucks. And many injuries which could have horrific and life threatening, were much less severe..

The Republicans always talk about how great "less government regulations would be"...This one set of facts proves what a lie that is. In this case, government regulations, ordered by Jimmy Carter, and his transportation secretary Brock Adams, have saved tens of thousands of lives over the course of more than 35 years..Remember, Republicans did not want the original rule to go into effect., Now putting on the seat belts is the law.. Airbags are in cars, front and side, along with seat belts and harnesses all around..That is the law too, all new cars must have these safety devices.

If you hit the link below, proof of the above will be provided....Note, the gradual reduction in the 80s and more reduction as years went on. The reduction from the 80s to now, over all, is quite significant when considering the increase of the number of miles traveled. 2011 and 2014 were very similar with about 32,500 deaths..The last time the number was lower than that was in 1949. Hit the link and take a look at the 3 charts provided. At the link there are the number of deaths from about 1900 to the present.

So, if you know someone who was saved by a seat belt or airbag ,it was President Jimmy Carter and Transportation Secretary Brock Adams who started this in 1977. with the seat belt mandate 39 years ago yesterday. Government regulations saved their life. That is solid proof that regulations are often life saving and helpful, and the Republican lie machine cannot deny this truth.

PLEASE remember, Hitler burned down the Reichstag !!

about the Reichstag Fire..if you do not know about it...?

You may not know about the Reichstag Fire and what it did....please hit link above for information on it.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Trump was behind the whole thing with the blocked up road. Oh, it will look like it was anti-Trump agitators..and their background will be very hard to verify,,but daman it, it smells like a skunk, and looks like a skunk and waddles like a skunk..guess what? It is a skunk

This smells like something that Trump would put together. Perfect way to destroy so called, "agitators"..so he will look like the victim. Like Hitler..........and


if some very sharp research detectives can figure out the true backgrounds of those who stopped the traffic...it may lead right back to Trump..it sounds like the "perfect storm for Trump"

But if it was a made up storm, like in the old movies....and if someone can prove it....Trump could be done, but many of his true believers will not believe it even if it was Trump.
But independents and moderate republicans would if the facts were total and undeniable.

Because he would lie about it anyway, !!!

Yes, this is ugly shit, but Trump is very ugly. Always blaming the protesters.
It fits perfectly to history, which Trump knows. Hitler blamed the agitators, and that would be perfect for Trump. and...he is using this to do what appears to be the same thing. If Trump uses this to get more traction and publicity and justification for his violence and hate, then it would fit.........that he somehow was behind it. Proving this will be very difficult. In some ways, I hope that I am wrong..but it doesn't feel that way.. end of rant......

The most wonderful movie I have ever seen... is

Star Wars 1977

"most wonderful" defined as a great feeling coming out of the theater. (yes, saw it in the theater) Like I enjoyed it so much, that knew I would see it again and again, and again....(combination of fun, good feeling, and true entertainment, just wonderful..you define)

Armed police freed 11 tigers, 3 lions, and 3 bears from captivity and that was just the beginning


In a small animal sanctuary 50 miles south of Buffalo, tigers paced back and forth around the rotting carcass of a dead cat. Flies swarmed piles of excrement. One tiger, in a cage next to two female lions, was missing most of her tail and one ear.

Rusty screws and plywood supported ramshackle metal cages. Several big cats showed signs of cataracts, and, according to people who were on the scene, they hadn't been given food or water for some time.

The site, an animal sanctuary known as JNK's Call of the Wild, had fallen into disrepair after a death months before left the surviving owner unable to provide for the animals.

Along with dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, and a horse, the Sinclairville, New York, facility held 11 tigers, three lions, three bears, and two wolves, all malnourished.


I did additional research on this one...I found this happened in May 2014. All large exotic animals survived but one tiger was so ill that it needed to be euthanized. I saw this one at Yahoo, but it switched me to the Business Insider site, and eventually after much time trying to load, I got most of the story. It is a long read, but well written in my opinion.. Also, this is interesting because the original owners really tried to take care of these exotic animals, but due to a death of an owner and increasing cost of food and upkeep, the facility fell into total disrepair. Also, the lengthy article describes how easy it would be in some states to import and have exotic animals. Some states prohibit this, but others allow and a few require no permits at all..

Here is a google search link with a whole lot of additional stories about this if you desire more info:
