“I want to go back until it is finished”

The humanitarian community loses another freedom fighter in combat. Unless a warrior is an official government combat soldier or someone well known to the powers that be, the public will hear not one word from the mainstream media or government sources. Tragically a 13-year veteran combat medic and cameraman fighting with the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) unit has lost his life in Northeastern Syria.

During daylight fighting, on 3 November 2019, Zau Seng, of the Free Burma Rangers died of his battlefield wounds, mortar fire from Turkish alliance Syrian fighters in Kurdistan.

Read the story posted by Shadows of Hope on their Facebook page and website telling the story of Zau Seng’s last moments in life. Links to the Free Burma Rangers website and Facebook page also goes into more detail of that fatal day.

I have been a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump long before most Americans ever seriously considered him to lead our country.

I started supporting Trump in April of 2011. I vocally condemned Trump’s sudden pullout of Syria. As a result, I had lost many friends or went into conflict mode with them when they supported the pullout of Syria saying we shouldn’t have been there in the first place.

I tired of armchair analysts that know nothing of what they talk about and my hot temper let them know I didn’t think much of their statements. An isolation attitude pacifies those that don’t hear the screams or pleads for mercy. They don’t smell the blood or battle smoke or human death. They don’t have the lingering haunting for the ones they couldn’t save whom they think far more often than the ones they did save. It’s a battle you don’t want to go to, the War of Words because they hurt the very soul of ones who were once friends or family or loved ones. But sometimes a man has to stake his claim and stand his ground on issues. Especially issues when innocent women and children die from being slaughtered by ruthless terrorists and evil forces.

The point is not rather we should, or should not have been fighting there, but the fact we were there and then right out betrayed without warning, the world’s most valuable asset in fighting the Daesh terrorists–the Kurd of Kurdistan. Among those brave freedom fighters were thousands of Kurd women who fought beside male fighters, including U.S.Special Forces. We could not have brought down Daesh without them. The pullout was a betrayal and a green light to open slaughter on the fighters and the innocent people of that region, men, women, and children, mostly the latter of whom had already experience atrocities for years. Too, thousands of hardcore terrorists would escape only to renew their onslaught of terrorism in the world.

The abandoning of the Kurds, our most trusted and loyal allies in the fight against Daesh (ISIS or IS) terrorist was irresponsible, irreversible and reprehensible. I am nauseated by the ignorance of that decision. Many U.S. Special Forces and Special Ops, as well as a host of high commanders in the American combat zones, were equally appalled.

It was Trump’s Bay of Pigs.

I will continue to support Trump, but in a much less vocal manner. We have no choice. There is no sane alternative. Unity seems distant. We are a nation in peril. We might come to understand what the rest of the world and her people experience every day of their lives.

Many of us in tune with what is going on and what has been going on in that region, especially in Iraq and Syrian Kurdistan, knew the pullout would be tragic and fatal to many decent and innocent lives, and/or for the warrior the same.

When we hear about the loss of life by such freedom fighters as Zau Seng knowing the mainstream media won’t mention a word about it, we feel compelled in doing our part–our duty–in letting the world know the real stories that come from the dark corners of this planet. The darkness that just grew darker.

We will continue to focus on our humanitarian and human rights objectives despite the interference, displays and divisions and commotions that cause such disruption to our mission. Our operations are decades old and will continue for as long as we are able to continue. If we must stand alone, then so be it. We’ve stood alone before. We’ve never been afraid to be outnumbered. While pigeons flock together, Eagles fly alone.

In the dark corners of this earth are innocent people still oppressed by evil and tyranny. They do not know the freedom and independence that we Americans take for granted every waken hour.

Liberating the Oppressed with my theme song, The Green Beret, echoing from the darkness.
We celebrate people like the members of Tim Ballard’s groups, Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) and The Nazarene Fund. Robert Hoey’s people of Shadows of Hope (a Vegas Valley-born global humanitarian organization that began working in the hundreds of miles of tunnels underneath Las Vegas supplying humanitarian and medical aid to the thousands of homeless that live–and die there.) Now based in the State of Washington, it has grown to a multi-purpose humanitarian and human rights organization. And People from units like those of David Eubank’s, a former U.S. Army Special Forces and Ranger officer, the founder and leader of the Free Burma Rangers (FBR)in which Zau Seng was a 13-year member of. They all sing to the tune of the same song, and conviction: Liberating the Oppressed: The Ballad of the Green Berets

These Are the Alpha Teams

Memorial for FBR Team Members

Global humanitarians going into action with commandos in places where others won’t or can’t go deserve the highest of respect and support. They bring food, medicine, rescue and evacuation in a hopeless dark corner of the world. They are the real-life Rambos on operations and missions that be their last. Operations and missions that would scare the pants off the strongest of will. We cannot forsake them into anonymity, nor shall we.

We will be working more, longer, faster, pushing harder, in the days, weeks and years to come, trying our best to bring public awareness and support to these vital groups that risk their lives rescuing others.

The test of character is when someone risks their life or lay down their life for someone they don’t even know, only knowing the oppressed or endangered is a fellow human being. A human being deserving liberation from oppression and tyranny.

Almost nobody will thank them for their service, except those who know them personally and know what they do.

There will be no flag folded in a symbolic triangle and placed in the wooden display box with the military honor awards, war medals, and decorations. The will be no honor guard funeral or military spokesperson for the President to hand the widow the folded flag. No brass bands will play, no drums will beat or bagpipes will scream and cry. But maybe, just maybe we ought to start such service for the mercenaries, private contractors and freedom fighters among us who die in the same battles and wars as the rest of our heroes. Just maybe…

John 15:13-15 King James Version (KJV)
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Zau Seng was such a man. And tragically his death arrived on the 1-year birthday of his baby daughter. What could bring more sorrow to the hearts of the hearty?

Winner! Winner! Albertsons Monopoly Game Draws to Conclusion, but It’s Not What You’ve Been Told…

Today (7 May 2019) is the last day you can shop at Albertsons and receive free Monopoly tickets for a chance to win prizes. Winners come from more than 1 billion game tickets in play. You could win free groceries, free grocery gift cards, vacations and trips, college tuitions, consumer products of various money-value ranges from a few hundred dollars to a million dollars and cash prizes ranging from $5 to 1 million dollars and much more!

Actually, the Albertsons store I shop at is already out of tickets, so you can’t receive any more free tickets at some of the stores. See “Complaint” below.

There is much mistruth being circulated by some of the Albertsons employees, at least at the store where I shop, so that prompts this article.

I have had several Albertsons employees, including some mid-level managers, state that 7 May 2019 was the last date to redeem Monopoly tickets. That simply just is not true. So don’t throw your unredeemed tickets away. THEY ARE STILL GOOD!

The 7 May 2019 date is the last day tickets are supposedly handed out. But as stated, Albertsons have already depleted their supply a few days ahead of this date.

The online game for entering the code for additional chances to win in a sweepstake ends 17 May 2019 online or must be received by 28 May 2019 for mailed-in tickets.

Winning tickets for the prizes including instant winners and in-store coupons are good and redeemable through Tuesday 28 May 2019. It says so right on the winning ticket. Some special promos have expiration dates as late as 30 June 2019. See the printed information on the tickets for all expiration dates.

Lesson learned: Don’t take people’s word for it, not even managers. DIY and study all aspects of any game you enter. It could be worth a lot of money, and if not, provide some nice little bonuses such as free items. Review all rules and regulations and all information pertaining to the games offered at a retail store or consumer outlets that you decide to participate in. Review them early and don’t wait until the last minute to act such as cashing in winning tickets since supplies could be depleted.

Can’t find your Monopoly board? No worries. You don’t need it. Besides, a website explaining the Albertsons Monopoly Game suggests collecting whole game board pieces is a waste of time and energy. All you need are the RARE GAME PIECES. RARE GAME PIECES NEEDED TO WIN BIG Links to the complete official rules and other information are also included at this site. RULES

According to this website these are the only tickets you need to save: 302BA, 308DB, 309AC, 315CD, 318BE, 321AF, 327CG, 332DH, 335CI, 336DI, 341CJ, 343EJ, 348DK, 351CL, 353AM, 358BN, 362BO, 365AP, 372DQ, 374BR, 379CS, 381AT, 388DU, 391CV, 394BW, 397EW, 398AX, 401DX, 403AY, 404BY, 408AZ, 411DZ, 416D$, 417E$, 419B#, 420C#.
These are rare or very rare tickets. They are worth big bucks.

It is suggested you review this website information since there is still time to win and cash in your winnings.

Don’t discount the opportunity for the second-chance drawings, either. In 2017 a woman won the 1 million dollar prize from entering the second-chance drawing at an Albertsons affiliate store: Million-dollar winner

Tips:
Next year, start earlier and review the rules at the beginning of the game so you know exactly where you stand and what you need to do. Take full advantage of promos like these since they can total a tidy reward throughout the promotional season. That translates to a cash saving for your shopping budget.

Place all of your Monopoly tickets in one place, a basket, shoebox, whatever so you can find them when you need them and they are not scattered around in clutter presenting a lost opportunity. There is nothing worse than finding a winning ticket after the game is over and the turn-in date has expired.

Don’t waste winning tickets. If you can’t use them, give them to someone who can.

You’ve got to be in it to win. GOOD LUCK!

Complaint:
When the final day of free tickets approaches Albertsons has a habit of passing out extra tickets so they are not left with leftovers. This is a bad policy since I have a stack of tickets that are instant winners for two free tickets each. I am sure many other people have these now worthless tickets, too. Any of those tickets may (or could have) provide bigger winners. Because the Albertsons store where I shop has depleted its supply I am told I could go to another store. WRONG! Albertsons should send out to whatever source they have to and honor these winning tickets and redeem them as a customer deserves. Sure, they can change the rules or put disclaimers like “while supplies last,” but they devalue their own game and reputation when they do this nonsense because they displeased their loyal customer base. Lesson learned. Don’t wait until the last day to redeem your winning tickets. But then, what if those winning tickets for free tickets were among the last handed out? Now what?

Not Responding: Don’t ya all get sick of this sh#t?

Computer 1Microsoft forces an update.

Adobe requests an update. Fifth one this week. They keep trying to shove that McAfee BS on me. I already have it. Can’t their pink hairs figure that out yet?

Chrome wants to update. No, Chrome forces an update.

Microsoft updates again. And again. And again.

Terms of use are shoved into your face, via the screen. The screen man. Screen madness.

Google updates. No, I got rid of the Google search engine, too much BS and tracking. Too many changes. So I replaced Google with Duck Duck Go, and they update, too.

I get stood up on my updates, every time.

Gmail updates.

Tech company after social media company after whatever WTF company updates and forces or requests an update. Oh, yeah, let’s not forget WordPress and Blogger and Flogger and YouTube and PooTube.

Update and Update and Update.

And more NOT RESPONDING. NOT RESPONDING. NOT RESPONDING AND THE LITTLE BLUE WHEEL SYNDROME. AGAIN!

Often those updates are not fixing bugs or just fixing bugs, they are completely and in my opinion, fraudulently changing your computer or the software you bought and paid for. Or software you use by being forced to watch ads thereby which is the same as paying for it.

Computer 2Often they (the Demons in Silicone Valley and Seattle and Utopia) completely change things so they are entirely different than they were before the update and you have to learn how to use the program all over again. As if I have the time. Do you? I don’t.

Imaginary Friend: (I hear his voice.) “Me neither!”
Me: “Shut UP!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”

Tons of legal garbage to hogtie you with and force fornicate you to comply or else. If you don’t read it you may later be sorry. Very sorry. If you do read it you will fall asleep and completely forget whatever you were doing before the delivery of megatons of legal notices that surrender your rights, nearly all of them.

Wonder why I often call these turds communists?

Because they force you to do things you really don’t want to do rather than giving you an extended time frame to comply and explicit choice to volunteer. Force. They FORCE YOU. Like Mao. Like Kim Jung. Like Castro. Like Stalin. Yeah, those kinds of communists. Well maybe they aren’t that bad, BUT!!!

Tired of the PC running so slow after one of these updates? Or boatloads of updates?

Imaginary Friend: (I hear his voice, again.) “Maybe you have a hacker intruding upon your computer.”
Me: “Nope, we already checked that. You should have known that. And you know, how we completely delete and erase the hacker’s database if they get caught hacking us. The hard drive is gone. Right? Ya saw that done, right?”
Imaginary Friend: (Chuckling) “Funnier than the Benny Hill Show!”
Me: “Yup, now, shhhhh!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”

These updates are often NOT compatible with each other. One tech company messes up the masterminds of another tech company, (sometimes on purpose… well maybe more than sometimes,) but Silicone Valley is not in a chaos of local revolts and neighborhood wars. They dine together for Christ sakes. But they blame YOU and try to weasel out of blame of themselves as they try to convince you that your computer runs slow because you installed or downloaded another app, software or something else they could blame. Maybe you visited a bad website.

Nope, that sh#t doesn’t work anymore. Been there, done that. Old story. Broken BS.

Imaginary Friend: “Suckered once, fool you. Suckered twice fool me. Huh?”
Me: “Yut.”
Imaginary Friend: “Been farmin’ long?”
Me: “SHUT UP!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”

NO, I DID NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING NEW ON MY COMPUTER! The only download was your freaking UPDATE. SCREAM!

Imaginary Friend: (Louder) SCREAM!
Me: “Shhhh!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”

Sigh, and just when I was going to write that masterpiece that would earn me the Nobel Peace Prize and a bunch of other awards from the candy store, here comes the update notice reading; UPDATING, PLEASE WAIT. GO TAKE A LUNCH BREAK. HAVE A BEER. GET LOST. And then followed by, NOT RESPONDING followed by here comes that little pisser of a spinning blue wheel.

I have Little Blue Wheel Syndrome to add to my list of illnesses.

Me: Do they have a disability for that?
Imaginary Friend: “Nope. Does not qualify.”
Me: Sigh! SIGH!

Not Responding. Psst… pink hairs why are you still in your mama’s basement? Trump is herr according to Parlor. This is the 21st Century. Get on the ball. You should make things better, not worst. You should make things easier, not harder. Life 101.

When all these tech companies decide they will UPGRADE your computer (at the same time no less) rather you like it or not and force you–WITHOUT YOUR ATTORNEY PRESENT–into agreements that will take Elizabeth Warren and Perry Mason decades to learn about, to figure out and defend against, let’s look at why sh#t goes into NOT RESPONDING mode.

(Forget the hackers, the downloading of software or apps or viruses or malware, [which can sometimes or even frequently be the problem,] it’s all in the updates. Incompatible updates.)

All these tech pink hairs which certainly graduated in the bottom feeder half of their class decide because their bottom-feeding boss tells them to make a change… (often to spy or eavesdrop on the victim user) you know HOPE with red and blue and shades thereof. And poof, they update. And busloads of pink hairs from a busload of tech companies do the same. You know we all copy each other because nobody has a brain between their ears for anything other than dull space. There is little or no unique ability anymore.

Bingo, all these upgrades to all these apps and software, and even hardware are not compatible with each other. Not that the pink hairs care or even do their freeloading masters, but just the same you are stuck with that little pisser of a blue wheel spinning and spinning and spinning. YOU MUST pause to wonder if that little pisser of a spinning blue wheel is powered by the Energizer battery or related to the Energizer bunny. I mean, there is evidence of the color pink in the genetics of their DNA, is there not?

Imaginary Friend: “LMFAO!”
Me: “SHHHHH!”

Imaginary Friend: “Why don’t they make that little spinning wheel pink?”
Me: “You finally said something intelligent.”

Imaginary Friend: “Can we call it Pink Hair Syndrome now?”
Me: “Hold that thought.”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”

(Imaginary Friend recites Congressional rehearsal:) “Whereas, WE THE PEOPLE, cast to the Dark Forest those individuals that ruin our day, or night.” (We can only HOPE.)
Me: “I think you are on to something.”
Imaginary Friend: “Me,too.”

Now, what was I going to write about in my Dark Forest novel that has been a work-in-progress for years and years?

I forgot. That little pisser of a blue wheel sucked up all my energy and frustration.

Alas.

Imaginary Friend: “Maybe you should ask Ian Morgan, he knows everything.”
Me: “K.”Computer 3

Should the Government Do As Mark Zuckerberg Asks, Help Control Internet Content?

It is odd that Mark Zuckerberg has requested the government to have oversight over the Internet.

The government has always had oversight over the Internet, it just has not used its lawful powers usefully or correctly. The primary reason for that lack of oversight is from the inept public officials elected to Congress. These elected official fail because they are either actors and entertainers grandstanding with no real interest in enacting laws like legislators should and only present themselves in TV Reality-like shows called News pretending to be representative of the people and actually being of no legal use due to lack of representation and legislative enactments. Or, on the other side of the aisle, they have been involved in nonstop espionage, sabotage, Deep State conspiracy and political fighting that has gained zero use to the people. Their pugnacious behavior has only continuously divided our nation. But, Zuckerberg calls for Social Media Reform, not just for Facebook, but across the social media platforms.

I think that Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Jack Dorsey (Twitter), just to name two, are war criminals. I hold both Zuckerberg and Dorsey, their partners, managers and business associates responsible for the death of tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children, including babies who died (actually who were slaughtered or exterminated) because of their social media platforms’ tolerance, promoting, aiding and abetting and directly enhancing the rise of Daesh (ISIS) and other international terrorists. That is a historical fact which plenty of evidence can be found to support my claims.  I began protesting Zuckerberg’s and Dorsey’s as well as other social media lord’s participation in those attacks as early as June of 2014 when Daesh was just coming to surface on the international stage. Some of my writing to attest to those statements can be found in some of the posts below on this very website.

This post is not about the war crimes of Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey. That will come in another post or essay, or a series of them, in my Blogs & eBook collections. I believe, in time, one of the nations involved in the Daesh terrorism or the United Nations will indeed begin investigations and bring war crimes tribunals against the billionaire tyrants who rose to war-crime statue because of their inhumane behavior that FAILED TO REGULATE OR BAN HATE CRIMES AND POLITICAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC AS WELL AS HUMAN RIGHTS AGENDA BY INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST AND CRIMINALS INCLUDING PARTICULARLY ISLAMIC MUSLIMS

But no one wanted to offend the Muslims, so tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children including babies were slaughtered. Now, Zuckerberg calls for government oversight. I agree with him. But I also agree he (and Jack Dorsey and Company) should be held responsible for his own involvement in election tampering, hate crime activities and other wrongdoings including massive privacy invasions.

Just download an archive of your Facebook content and you will find low and behold Zuckerberg and Company has possession of your telephone contacts. Every name, every number in your telephone contact list Zuckerberg has possession of. So does who knows whatever third-party Facebook and company sold their private numbers too.

Jack Dorsey and Company offers a content archive download, too. But it is bogus. FAKE. It does not work. Just like the appeal process when Twitter locks out a user because their PINK HAIRS claimed the user used hateful content. The appeals go unread or ignored with no responses. Until the user gets on his knees and pleads mercy and saying UNCLE to the tyrant billionaire’s Pink Hairs the user’s account will remain to be locked out–innocent or guilty. And many of guilty ones will continue their hate because Dorsey and Company or Zuckerberg and Company happen to give them preference.

So, yes, we need oversight on social media. Government oversight or third parties. But who is to say even they won’t discriminate unfairly? We need oversight beginning with Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and the rest of Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google, YouTube, and other tech companies and social media. And we need oversight of public officials who express hate and incite hate and violence. Will we every see it? I doubt it. Maxine Waters is not only alive and well but prospering in Congress without a political scratch on her, although the ethics rules of Congress state she could and should have been expelled. The same applies to many other public officials that have never been brought to justice. Think Lois Lerner. Her partner in crime is now Chairman of the Government Oversight Committee, imagine that.

I don’t agree much on anything either Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey say or do. I do agree with at least taking a look at the list of things he mentions below and bringing them to an open forum for discussion. But I also agree with the majority of Americans and probably world citizens of all political, social, economic and religious ideologies and convictions that there needs to be oversight of the tech and social media tyrant billionaires themselves and a regulation to bring a fair and balance equality for and of all people. Muslims and blacks should not be given preference because someone is afraid of offending them. Nor should whites be given special privilege. Nor should an existing generation be blamed for something a former generation committed.

We need to pull our heads out of the sand and make a better world for all of us and future generations.

We have a lot of nonsense floating around in our society, at home and abroad. We need good leaders to sift through that nonsense and bring us equal justice for all while restoring peace and calm and unity. Is anyone up to the job?

Add Your Two Cents
What do you think should happen? Should there be a government oversight in social media? Or even on the Internet? If so who should be regulated and what should the penalties for violation be? Who should do the regulating and what defense or appeal should a person who believes they are innocent have? Should websites be able to lock people out denying them access to their own material, even if they do lock out the user from public appearance? What about freedom of speech? Where are the lines drawn to protect freedom of speech and the First Amendment?

What does Mark Zuckerberg want?

In brief, Mr. Zuckerberg calls for the following things:

* Common rules that all social media sites need to adhere to, enforced by third-party bodies, to control the spread of harmful content

* All major tech companies to release a transparency report every three months, to put it on a par with financial reporting

* Stronger laws around the world to protect the integrity of elections, with common standards for all websites to identify political actors

* Laws that not only apply to candidates and elections, but also other “divisive political issues”, and for laws to apply outside of official campaign periods

* New industry-wide standards to control how political campaigns use data to target voters online

* More countries to adopt privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force last year

* A “common global framework” that means these laws are all standardized globally, rather than being substantially different from country to country

* Clear rules about who’s responsible for protecting people’s data when they move it from one service to another

Amazon becomes the world’s most valuable public company

Jeff Bezos has surpassed Bill Gates as the world’s richest man and his company, Amazon, passes Gates’s Microsoft as the world’s most valuable public company.

It only took 25 years for Jeff Bezos to take a company now named Amazon.com from a private garage to one of the largest companies in the world. Founded in 1994 Bezos started in the used book business and sold his first book in 1995.

Amazon becomes world’s most valuable public company (8 January 2019)

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos beats Bill Gates in new rich list (17 July 2018)

Bill Gates and his partner, Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, began their road to riches from the humble beginning started in a private garage, too.

Mark Zuckerberg and his co-founders started Facebook in a college dorm room. There are thousands of examples of how Americans started with nothing and built an empire. Why are they hated so much and attacked so often?

Three years ago college graduates could not find a job. Many lived in their mother’s basement and were in despair. Now many of them have their own companies and are are climbing the corporate ladder and are planning their own company. That’s what the Americans do, they dream the American Dream.

While socialists and socialism are rising like out-of-control weeds in a garden crowding out American Dreams and prosperity, they denounce the wealthy people and the big companies they own. They are calling for taxes as high as 70% on the very companies started by college dropouts and people just like themselves. America and Americans produce yet again world examples that one can, in the freest and most independent land in the world, go from rags to riches, broke to wealthy by following their dreams and working hard.

Now why would anybody want to destroy that?

A young, Saudi Arabian woman, Rahaf al-Qunun, is struggling for freedom and independence after escaping her patriarch family in the Middle East. In nations like Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally of significant importance, females, even adults do not have freedom or independence. If Ms. Mohammed a-Qunun is forced to return to her home country of Saudi Arabia it is certain she will be another victim of honor killing.

Rahaf al-Qunun: Saudi woman ‘given refugee status’

The bridge from slavery to freedom is a daring and risky thing to cross. So is the bridge from destitution to financial security. Those that dare to risk everything and take those challenges of crossing those bridges have the most to gain.

We have become a world that wants to punish those who have accomplished so much and reward those who have done little to help themselves or the world. That just doesn’t seem right.
