Does ND District 37 Know Or Care How Inappropriate And Corrupt It Looks?

On Saturday January 7, I saw a Facebook post made by former North Dakota Representative Luke Simons, explaining that the ND District 37 Republican Committee was having a District reorganization meeting this morning at 10:00 a.m. at the Blue 42 Sports Bar & Grille in Dickinson. Luke Simons’ complaint was that he had not seen or heard any notice beforehand that this meeting was taking place, as if there was an attempt at secrecy going on.

I read the Dickinson Press newspaper every day. Most articles, notices, and announcements are repeated in the Dickinson Press newspaper for several days, but I never saw an announcement for the ND District 37 Republican Committee meeting. Nor did I see any announcement on Facebook, or anywhere else. I have to agree with Luke Simons, this does look like there was no notification published where ordinary citizens would see it, as if they didn’t want ordinary citizens to know.

This lack of notification, may in itself not seem so bad, but if you become aware of a few more elements involved here, it gets worse. Back on September 20, 2022 former ND Representative Luke Simons obtained a copy of the ND District 37 Republican Party by-laws. In reading these by-laws, Luke Simons discovered several elements which appear to be inappropriately exclusionary:

    • In order to become a member of ND District 37 Republicans, and vote at District 37 Republican Committee Meetings, for such things as election of officers, you must first present yourself in-person at a meeting.  But how can you present yourself at a District 37 Republican meeting in-person, if there is no Public Notice beforehand when and where these meetings will be held?
    • When you present yourself at a ND District 37 Republican meeting, and pay your $60 dues, you can’t vote at that meeting, not until your application has been reviewed and approved at a later date after the meeting is over.
    • A person’s ND District 37 Republican Party membership application can be rejected, at the discretion of the ND District 37 Committee.
    • A person’s ND District 37 Republican Party membership can be revoked, for such reasons as “putting the Republican Party in a bad light”, at the discretion of the ND District 37 Republican Committee.

In my opinion, the absence of a clear Public Notice ahead of time when & where the ND District 37 Republican Committee meeting will take place, combined with the necessity of going to this meeting to be able to join the ND District 37 Republicans, not being allowed to vote at the ND District 37 Republican Committee meeting until the next meeting, if your application is approved at the discretion of the Committee, if your membership isn’t revoked at the discretion of the Committee, are barriers that attempt to block, control, and limit who participates in Dickinson politics.

Further, this ND District 37 Republican Committee meeting held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, was held at a Bar & Grille owned by the District 37 Republican Committee Chairperson, Mike Lefor.  Chairperson Mike Lefor and the other Committee members might have felt comfortable at the Blue 42 Sports Bar & Grille, it may have been convenient for them, but I question the appropriateness of this location for several reasons:

What if a group of Republicans in Dickinson, say for example Evangelical Christians, did find out where the ND District 37 Republicans were having a meeting, arrived on time, completed their application for membership, paid their membership dues, were approved for membership, weren’t revoked, and had the intention of challenging Mike Lefor in voting for a new chairperson, or bringing opposition to a position Mike Lefor supported.  Is opposition to Mike Lefor or his positions possible in Mike Lefor’s restaurant, with his customers, supporters, bar staff, wait staff, cooks?

It’s probably convenient and comfortable for the ND District 37 Republicans to have their Committee meeting at Blue 42 Sports Bar & Grille, owned by their Chairperson, in part because it’s just one more additional barrier to the Committee members being opposed.  But in my opinion, this shouldn’t be, there can’t be such a strangle-hold on participation in politics in Dickinson.

Why am I reporting this, why am I pointing this out, why am I explaining this?  Maybe because the Dickinson Press newspaper office in Dickinson is owned by the ND District 37 Republican Committee Chairperson Mike Lefor, and you aren’t going to hear about this anywhere else.

There is much, much more to the story about politics in Dickinson.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  With the help of either the ineptitude or blind-eye of the Dickinson Press newspaper, there is so much going on in Dickinson that has crossed the line of small-town politics into what should be half a dozen different investigations by the North Dakota Attorney General or the U.S. Justice Department into legal impropriety.

A tangled web, but not so tangled that its strings can’t be seen for where they start, where they meet, where they end:  Federal funding, State funding, County funding; Federal legislation, State legislation, County legislation; Advance planning, scheming, support, politicking, alliances, collusion, strong-arming, manipulation, quid-pro-quo, payoffs; individuals, businesses, organizations, associations, non-profits, committees, commissions, directors, employers, employees; all part of and involved in transactions that cross the line of legality, into illegal, improper, unethical activity.

Reader Comment About The History Of Earth

Today when I was looking at comments that I received from readers of my blog, I read a very long comment that took a lot of thought and attention to write, so I decided to share this comment in a blog post article.

For the past year, I have been learning so much, that it has been difficult for me to write many blog post articles. It is the right time for me to receive this information, but I think that the majority of people could not care less if I tried to explain it to them. So I haven’t attempted it, but this reader who contacted me, has given it a try, so I will share what they wrote.

For me personally, thirty years ago I saw Pastor Arnold Murray of Gravette, Arkansas pull out a fossilized “modern” artifact from his desk drawer, something that shouldn’t have existed thousands of years ago, and proclaim, “There have been several ‘Earth Ages’….”

For forty years, Steven Quayle of Bozeman, Montana has been researching and writing books about “Giants”. Many of the Native American tribes have both a verbal passed-down history and petroglyphs depicting giants. Many of the early Spanish Conquistadors chronicled their encounters with giants. But more importantly, there have been hundreds, maybe even thousands of burial mounds uncovered in North America with skeletal remains of giants.

Lately there has been very frequent discussion of the 1909 G.E. Kincaid discovery of a very large, elaborate cave system built into the side of the Grand Canyon that contained exclusively Egyptian and Tibetan type artifacts. This discovery was reported in the Arizona Gazette newspaper at the time.

Within this past year, I have become almost completely convinced that the entire World has participated in the cover-up and erasure from history, the existence of the “Tartarian Empire” that included all of Russia, Austria, Germany, Hungary, and most of Asia. Antique maps from the 1500s and 1600s show “Tartaria” or “Tartary” occupying this area.

Due to World-wide sharing of information, “modern technology” in fossils; “modern technology” in ancient artifacts; antique maps depicting civilizations in Antarctica, Atlantis, Lemuria, and the Tartarian Empire; burial mounds with giants up to 30ft in height; Biblical accounts of giants; Egyptian, Native American, South American, Tibetan, Indian glyphs and writings depicting aliens and alien spacecraft, all point to the History, Religion, Science, and Medicine we are taught being inaccurate and incomplete.

Here is the comment from a reader StargateSG7:

What the heck! Since it’s December 30, 2022, I might as well pontificate some more findings since some of my earlier posts sound kind of insane, deranged and/or out-of-this world.

Steve’s HowToHunt channel is getting larger and larger because SOMETHING is going on with various Cryptids showing up sometimes literally on peoples’ doorsteps for whatever reason. Too many people are coming forth with their own stories and he is one of the FEW internet celebrities able to provide a non-judgemental platform for people of all creeds and cultures to showcase what was seen and/or happening TO THEM! Steve is a platform. Nothing More! You either ACCEPT the stories or you DON’T! Some are fake! Many are Real and some are even out-of-thsi world! Like he says: Take It Or Leave It As You Will!

I personally come from a Science-oriented background that DESIRES practical real-world EVIDENCE of any given claim. I also like REPEATABILITY where if someone says If you do X then Y happens, I would like to REPLICATE what someone previously has done or said, so that I might obtain FURTHER PROOF of a given single event or set of experiments/phenomena!

There is REAL WORLD EVIDENCE of modern Cryptids including Sasquatch/Bigfoot/SABE/Yowee/Yeti AND ALSO of ghosts, aliens, dogmen, skinwalkers, demons, ephemerals and other non-traditional entities.

We humans actually ARE getting smarter by the year mostly due to the rapid advancements of Computer Technology which lets us examine at a closer level whatever real-world evidence pops into play.

We can simulate, emulate, reformulate and even dis-assemble events, materials and structures to such an extent that we can either REFUTE or CONFIRM what was original told and/or postulated.

What is Sasquatch? We have EVIDENCE that they are multi-faceted beings where some have ancient origins, some have near-modern-human qualities IN ADDITION to there being entities that are non-corporeal and/or even micro-machine-based (MEMS) artificial lifeforms!

SOME such beings have non-traditional paranormal abilities that are EITHER natural in origin or are technologically enhanced. This means we humans LIKELY have the same abilities which were naturally devolved due to climate/environmental/social pressures OR were purposefully REMOVED from us by other beings of a high-technology ability.

There is ALSO concrete evidence that we humans are NOT the native intelligent lifeform on this Earth! Our Circadian Rythm (aka Body Clock) is oriented towards a 25 hour planetary spin while Earth in its ancient past had a 22 to 23 hour rotational period. Ergo, we are ORIGINALLY from a planet that had a 25 hour spin!

There is also CONCRETE evidence (literally concrete!) of ancient space-faring technological civilizations from multiple periods such as 280 to 220 million years ago, 180 to 160 million years ago and 100 to 70 million years ago that SEEM to indicate reptilian-like bipedal beings ARE the actual evolved natives of Earth but abandoned it once they became space-faring!

During specially-operated mining and survey acivities, multiple persons/groups have found fibre-reinforced concrete megastructures and large-scale technological system that WERE NOT CRUSHED under tectonic activity located within deep underground regions in today’s western South America and Southwest Africa that were once part of ancient continents and low-land areas that WOULD HAVE BEEN protected via large mountain ranges and/or oceans/lakes which would have kept away the major Dinosaurs and other Carnivores of those eras, allowing the Saurians/Reptoids enough time and space to evolve and become technological and then spacefaring!

Other deep underground found evidence indicates within the last one-million years, a very large humanoid species that is a close relative of modern humans had built multiple lakeside cities about TWICE the size of modern day Tokyo (tokyo is 60 million people today so ancient cities of 120 million people) to be present near todays India/Kashmir border region and what is now southwest of Calgary, Canada.

These beings created massive fibre-reinforced concrete dams to create artificial lakes that then had built massive lakeside cities with buildings ten times the size of todays largest buildings with massive transportation/rail networks that were basically the size of modern day cargo ships traverse the ancient pre-glacial-era lands that are now the Canadian Prairies and a major Asian mountainous region!

We SUSPECT that we modern humans are the product of a genetic engineering program to create self-replicating (i.e. disposable!) biological robots that were designed to mine precious or technologically-important metals and minerals that COULD NOT be otherwise obtained easily from local gas giants or other rocky planets.

Probably, it was the usual technologically-important Gold, Silver, Platinum-group, Aluminum, Titanium and other metals and probably radioactive materials were what was mined during the interstadial periods around 600,000+ years ago.

There is ALSO EVIDENCE of nuclear explosions due to the finding of common long-lived radionucleotides in uniform layers of sub-surface strata that only now have subsided to just above background levels which are by-products of nuclear warefare.

We suspect, based upon OTHER technology found, that the large-stature humanoids that created modern humanity had a long-term war with another alien species and eventually abandoned Earth and left our modern-era human ancestors to their own devices! It looks like they INTENTIONALLY blew up their own cities and left quickly after a long period of space and terrestrial warfare that was initially non-nuclear in nature.

We also have “Concrete Evidence” that these ancient cities were built and present upon Earth for at least 75,000 years BEFORE the final warfare with the other species. And that final warfare was long-term for at least 100 to 1000 years in duration before the final abandonment/self-destruction of those cities and the artificially created lakes!

This evidence was predicated upon the obtainment of out-of-place artifacts being discovered and retrieved during 1950’s to 1990’s-era Oil & Gas drilling operations, deep mining operations and seismic surveys within the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in Canada which then eventually led to similar exploration/archeology activities in the Kashmir/India border regions which indicated large megastructures located underground in both places which led to further technological artifacts being found which finally led to well-funded explorations and scientific analysis by groups funded by mostly petro-and-mining-related wealthy patrons, which is ONLY JUST NOW getting to be publicly disclosed within the 2020’s-era.

We humans are NOT the native species on Earth! At least THREE other civilizations BEFORE US became technological and spacefaring! Today, we humans live with OTHER CRYPTIDS that are both native to Earth and are part of the genetically-engineered biology created by non-modern-human alien entities who did NOT evolve here but came from somewhere else in this Galaxy or elsewhere in the local universe!

It’s a pretty scary thought as to WHAT ELSE has been found or researched by those in Government agencies, various militaries and private groups which has NOT YET been disclosed publicly!

A Few Videos Of December Storm In New England North Dakota

For readers who don’t know, North Dakota is very sparsely populated. The entire state has less than 800,000 people. In the southwest corner of North Dakota, the largest city is Dickinson, with 25,000 people. Surrounding Dickinson are more than a dozen towns with populations ranging from 30 to 1,000 people: South Heart, Belfield, New Hradec, Manning, Killdeer, Gladstone, Richardton, Taylor, Lefor, Regent, Mott, Hettinger, Reeder, Scranton, Amidon, New England.

Taking New England, North Dakota for example, with a population of 500 people, I think that the vast majority of people in the United States can’t imagine how quiet, uneventful, slow-paced life is. What makes it even more quiet, is when a winter storm causes people to stay home. Traffic goes from a normal daytime rate of one vehicle driving past a house every ten minutes, to one vehicle per hour.

At night during a winter snow storm, once it gets past about 8:00 p.m., everyone in New England is home for good. No traffic at all after that, maybe not even until 10:00 a.m. the following day.

On Monday evening December 12, there began a winter snow storm in southwest North Dakota, that was expected to be just short of a blizzard. The winds would be just below 35 mph, and visibility would be slightly above 1/2 mile. On Tuesday there was about 12″ of snow fall. After staying inside all day Tuesday, out of boredom I got up at 3:00 a.m. Wednesday morning to make some videos showing how still it was outside. Here are some of these videos:

My Thoughts On The November 2022 North Dakota Election Results

I was disappointed in the November 2022 North Dakota election results for three main reasons. I wanted Dr. Rick Becker of Bismarck to replace U.S. Senator John Hoeven, and I wanted Thea Lee of Sentinel Butte to be elected as a District 39 State Representative. Both of these candidates were underdogs, highly Conservative grass-roots Republicans who were forced to run as Independents. And I didn’t want recent college graduate and former Miss America Cara Mund to run at all, especially not for U.S. Representative.

I deliberately did not write any blog articles about Dr. Rick Becker, Thea Lee, and Cara Mund because I didn’t want to unintentionally harm Becker and Lee, and help Cara Mund. In other words, my endorsement of Becker and Lee might have hurt them, and my criticism of Cara Mund might have helped her.

I felt grateful about my decision not to write anything prior to the election, when I soon saw that one of Cara Mund’s primary campaign talking points was that she was being picked on because she was a woman, after supposedly receiving many mean, sexist emails and tweets. In my opinion, this might have had more to do with people not liking Cara Mund, because people around here love female South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

The reason why I did not want Cara Mund to run for any political office, especially not U.S. Representative, is because she just graduated from college, and in my opinion she doesn’t know anything yet. I think that she doesn’t even know, that she doesn’t know, and this is a very dangerous thing. Ask anybody who has worked anywhere, you have to watch the new-hire so that they don’t hurt themselves or somebody else, because they don’t know that they don’t know.

Cara Mund graduated from Brown University in 2016 with a degree in business, served as Miss America in 2018, and graduated from Harvard Law School in May of 2022. Two months later she announced her candidacy for U.S. House Of Representatives. Though Cara served on boards, committees, associations, and internships, this experience appears to me to be mostly academic. ( In general, I am tired of seeing recent college graduates, especially in politics, trying to suggest that they have what appears to be 20 years of work experience on their resume, eight years in management, eight years in sales, four years in marketing. This doesn’t compute. Did they start working when they were 8 years old, or is this shit made-up? )

The original purpose of elected representatives in the United States, was to represent constituents regarding their concerns and endeavors, to speak and act on their behalf. North Dakota is primarily a blue-collar, low education level, agricultural, oil, natural gas, and coal producing state. In my opinion, Cara Mund is about the furthest thing from these North Dakota constituents. She has not personally experienced first-hand the concerns, problems, difficulties, and struggles of farmers, laborers, trades people, oil field workers, low-skilled, and under-educated working-class people.

Maybe after working at a job in the private sector for a while, starting a family, experiencing many of the same problems as everyone else with employment, pay, bosses, co-workers, housing, mortgage, property taxes, bills, spouse, children, public school, health care, court system, law enforcement, she will be a better candidate to represent North Dakotans. Cara Mund did not win the U.S. Representative election, she lost to incumbent Republican Kelly Armstrong.

On the other hand, in contrast to Cara Mund, first-time political candidate Thea Lee from Sentinel Butte, was very reasonable, appropriate, logical, sensible, solid in her approach and campaign for District 39 North Dakota Representative. Thea’s candidacy made sense, because of what she represents. She is a wife, a mother with five children, former foster parent, and judicial advocate who homeschools her kids. She lives on a ranch in a very rural, remote, sparsely populated area, where she and her husband currently tend 400 goats. Each of these things is very relatable to North Dakotans living in District 39.

Why I was also in favor of Thea Lee, was because like Dr. Rick Becker, she had to temporarily step outside of the Republican Party election system, when the endorsed Republican Party candidate was not who many Conservatives wanted. In my opinion, I did not like the situation where motorhomes and for-hire “party-buses” delivered voters to the District 39 Republican Party nomination meeting, this was very suspicious to me, and I hoped that Thea Lee being elected would undo what I perceived as being wrong. Thea Lee running as an Independent, lost the District 39 Representative election to the endorsed Republican candidate.

The most important election this November of 2022 in North Dakota, was the race for U.S. Senator. The incumbent, Senator John Hoeven, was Governor of North Dakota from 2000-2010, and U.S. Senator from 2011- present. At 65 years of age, ten years as Governor, eleven years as U.S. Senator, net worth $45 million, not always voting very Republican or Conservative, I think that Senator John Hoeven is out-of-touch with the majority of North Dakotans, ordinary North Dakotans, and it’s time for better representation. In my opinion, Senator John Hoeven is like North Dakota’s version of Nancy Pelosi or Mitch McConnell, been there too long and you can see it in the way they act, like they’re Royalty.

Dr. Rick Becker, a plastic surgeon in Bismarck and former State Legislator, is very intelligent, knowledgeable, competent, well-spoken, vocal, confident, and better than energetic, he has a consistent alert temperament. Dr. Rick Becker is very much like U.S. Senator Dr. Rand Paul. Just like U.S. Senator Dr. Rand Paul, Dr. Rick Becker could have had more wealth, a much easier life, and an early retirement if he would have chosen not to become involved in politics. In other words, Dr. Rick Becker is actually giving up much more than he is personally gaining from these campaigns, elections, and serving in public office.

Dr. Rick Becker is more Conservative and committed to Republican Party principles than Senator John Hoeven, as you can see for yourself in these two political rating comparisons http://ratings.conservative.org/people/02d00f0b-b88e-444f-ab65-adb352d5ae69 versus http://ratings.conservative.org/people/H001061 (Source: The Center for Legislative Accountability CLA, an initiative of the Conservative Political Action Coalition CPAC )

Some specific examples of things that Dr. Rick Becker has done to personally “stick his neck out” for Conservative & Republican principles, rather than just try to get along and not rock the boat in the North Dakota Legislature:

  • After first being elected to the ND Legislature in 2013, Dr. Rick Becker formed the Bastiat Caucus, named after the limited government political philosopher Frédéric Bastiat, which gathered several dozen members of the North Dakota House, to organize a unified, conservative front on key votes.
  • In 2015 Dr. Rick Becker supported a Bill to reduce State Income Tax to 0%.
  • In 2015 Dr. Rick Becker introduced a Bill to ban DUI checkpoints. (Unconstitutional)
  • In 2017 Dr. Rick Becker introduced a “Constitutional Carry” Bill for firearms, which later passed.
  • Dr. Rick Becker worked to achieve Confidential Informant reform, Civil Asset Forfeiture reform, Unmanned Drone Surveillance reform.
  • Dr. Rick Becker worked to prohibit teaching Critical Race Theory in ND public schools.
  • Dr. Rick Becker worked on legislation during the Covid-19 pandemic stating that North Dakota would only comply with Federal Laws and Executive Orders that North Dakota deemed Constitutional.

I was sorry to see that Dr. Rick Becker did not win the election for U.S. Senator.  I thought that he had a very good chance of doing so.  I don’t know why Forum Communications reporter and columnist Rob Port chose to mock Dr. Rick Becker both prior to and after the election, making statements that Dr. Rick Becker was not as popular or influential as he thought he was.  North Dakotans very much needed someone like Dr. Rick Becker to represent and advocate for average ordinary people.

The Nicest Vehicle For Sale In Dickinson North Dakota

On Tuesday evening I drove my 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser to the Upin Thai restaurant in Dickinson to pick up a Red Curry Chicken that I had ordered. I bought this vehicle in 2014 in Bismarck from the owner of Bearscat Bakery for $4,500. Since then, after driving and learning more about it, I have been in love with Land Cruisers.

From time-to-time I look on BisMan Classifieds for Toyota Land Cruisers for sale, and I bought two more 1992 models that were located in Bismarck, one in 2016 and the other in 2020. I even used to look for them on nationwide salvage vehicle auction websites, because they can withstand substantial front end or rear end damage and still run & drive fine.

For readers who are not familiar with Toyota Land Cruisers, the Toyota Motor Company intentionally and knowingly over-built Land Cruisers in comparison to its other vehicles which were already good quality, so that they would be trouble-free in very remote harsh environments such as Vietnam, Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Phillipines, Africa, Australia, South America, and the Middle East.

In almost every country on Earth, male children and adults know what Toyota Land Cruisers are, not necessarily as a status symbol, but as a way to get to or from some place that is very difficult to reach. The U.S. is likely the only country where most people do not know what a Land Cruiser is, because U.S. roads are modern and in good condition.

I was very surprised on Tuesday night, to see a 2001 Toyota Land Cruiser for sale, across the street from the Upin Thai restaurant in Dickinson, North Dakota:

The empty lot where this Toyota Land Cruiser was parked, which actually turned out to be the Lexus/Luxury version, is owned by Ray’s Auto Electric. At the end of this video, the contact phone number shown on the passenger-side window is for Ray’s Auto Electric. In 2018 I bought a 2000 Toyota 4Runner on this lot from Ray’s Auto Electric, that has been a good vehicle for me. This 4Runner had come from an auto auction needing some repair that was done by Ray’s before I got it.

The reason why I am saying that this is the nicest vehicle for sale in Dickinson right now, is because it is. Though it currently has 207K miles on it, and an asking price of $13,500, over the next ten years and 200K miles, it should only need normal maintenance like oil changes, brakes, and maybe a fuel pump. Upon further research, this 4.7 liter V8 engine does have a timing belt, not a timing chain, and it is strongly recommended that the timing belt be replaced every 90K miles.

At the end of ten years and another 200K miles, it should be worth about $5K-$10K because its body & chassis will still be solid, and its engine & transmission serviceable. ( Some 1990s Land Cruisers with over 200K miles currently sell for 60% of their original price. )

Altogether you would get a very safe, reliable, comfortable, good looking vehicle with only $8K total depreciation over ten years and 200K miles.

In comparison, a new Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee, Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Ford Bronco, or a new Dodge truck would experience about $30K-$40K depreciation over ten years and 200K miles. And be more likely to require an expensive repair along the way.

Unwanted Sexualization!

When YouTube creator Isabel Paige uploads videos of herself bathing nude in a river, and if you are male and look at these videos, you are probably guilty of Unwanted Sexualization.

If a young woman wears tights and a sports bras at a public gym or fitness center, and if you are male and look at her, you are probably guilty of Unwanted Sexualization.

If a young woman wears a Bikini to a beach, a lake, a swimming pool, or park, and if you are male and look at her, you are probably guilty of Unwanted Sexualization.

Women will explain to you, that when women bathe nude and upload videos of them bathing nude, wear tights & sports bras to a gym, wear a Bikini to a beach, pool, or park, the last thing that women want is some man looking at them. This is Unwanted Sexualization!

Below I have included a few videos to further illustrate and clarify Unwanted Sexualization:

Here we have a young lady who has just finished swimming, she is now trying to dry herself off, and has someone videoing her drying off. Clearly, she doesn’t want any man looking at her, because if he did, he would likely be guilty of Unwanted Sexualization:

The young lady shown in the video below, who was just minding her own business at the pool while being videoed, and was asked to leave, shows us an example of Unwanted Sexualization by the property manager, the camera man, and her 1.9 million followers on TikTok!

@thealexiaskye

They kicked me out after this 🥲🤣 #fyp #fakebody

♬ toma tussi – key 💋

Even older women like Mary Burke, are the victims of Unwanted Sexualization. Why can’t you just leave Mary alone! She doesn’t want you looking at her in the videos that she made and posted on TikTok, you perverts!

If you think that women wear tights and yoga pants in order to get the attention of men, as if they want men looking at them, you’d be wrong. Women wear tights and yoga pants for utility and practicality, as shown in this video below:

How Western North Dakotans Should Dress When Visiting The State Capitol In Bismarck

Western North Dakota is very sparsely populated, with very small towns separated from each other by long distances. Most of these towns have fewer than 2,000 people, with a single grocery store, if they are lucky.

Because the people are so isolated, it is hard for them to know what is going on in the rest of the World. Here are some examples of how Western North Dakotans should dress, if they should visit the State Capitol in Bismarck:

Videos Showing Women Staying Home, Cooking, Covering Themselves, And Behaving Correctly

Especially since the 1970s in the United States, women have sought to abandon their traditional roles that they have had for at least the past 5,000 years. Instead of being a homemaker, staying home, keeping house, cooking, taking care of children, and being a helpmate to their husbands, women have tried to do anything and everything besides these things.

Here are a few of my favorite videos of women cooking, covering themselves, and behaving correctly:

The Lovely Queen Marlene On TikTok

Where I have been living for the past nine years in western North Dakota, it is very sparsely populated. The town where I bought a house two years ago, has a population of 600. The other nearby towns within 10-30 miles, Havelock, Daglum, De Sart, Pierce, Whetstone Butte, Schefield, have been abandoned. But then there’s Amidon and Lefor, each with a population of about 50 people.

Some of the main reasons why western North Dakota has very few people, is because it gets so cold here in the winter, as low as -50 degrees Fahrenheit, with many days each year of 40-50 mph winds, and the landscape is mostly flat treeless prairie.

For the past nine years I have had time to consider why there is a shortage of women in western North Dakota, and a scarcity of attractive women. My belief, is that when the German and Ukrainian immigrant farmers arrived by ship in the east coast cities of the U.S. in the early 1900s, and then began the journey by wagon heading west, the attractive German and Ukrainian women escaped by sneaking off along the way, or pleading for rescue from passersby. The attractive women didn’t want to begin again living in 10’x12′ stacked grass sod huts, in freezing weather, with high winds for most of the year, all alone on a farm in the middle of nowhere.

Western North Dakota is a good place for me to live, because I don’t like people, or being around people most of the time. However, because I grew up in a sunny, warm, picturesque town on the Atlantic Ocean in Florida, the kind of place where beautiful women from all over the World wanted to visit or live, I just took it for granted that this is what life would be like. Attractive, healthy, happy, fun women who wanted to date, go places, do things, was what I was accustomed to being around.

Women who grew up taking ballet class, piano lessons, riding lessons, and knew that they were going to college whether they wanted to or not. A job, profession, or occupation was just something for them to do while young, dating, and waiting to become married. They had no worries. I never had a reason to believe or expect that there would be a shortage of women like this in my future.

Which brings me to Queen Marlene on TikTok. Marlene De Lima was born and raised in sunny South Africa. If you were White and born in South Africa, you were middle-class, upper-middle-class, or very wealthy. Girls took dance lessons, music lessons, riding lessons, played tennis, went to the beach, sun bathed by their swimming pool, frequently had barbeques, family vacations, whether they lived in a city or on a farm.

The middle-class, upper-middle-class childhood that Marlene De Lima had growing up in South Africa was probably slightly more privileged than mine was growing up in a small coastal town in Florida, but was still very similar. And Marlene has all of the qualities and characteristics of the women that I was around growing up, things that I miss: showering, getting ready, getting dressed in the morning in clothes, jewelry, and hair that looks nice; caring about their appearance, behavior, things that they say and do, to maintain and leave a good impression.

I recognize something different in Marlene that is particular to South Africa. In the mid 1600s, the Dutch East India Company began to establish a ship re-supply operation in Cape Town, South Africa. Many former employees of the Dutch East India Company remained in South Africa to become settlers. These Dutch settlers sometimes married indigenous people, and created a new South African ethnic group who spoke Dutch, called the Cape Coloureds. Because of the appearance of Marlene’s eyes, hair, complexion, callipygous ass, and impetuousness, I believe that at least one of her ancestors was a Cape Coloured.

I like Marlene, I think that she is attractive and very spirited. It does not surprise me that she works as a sales representative.

Many Of The Issues This Spring Are Too Tangled For Me To Write About

This winter and early spring of 2022, I have spent a great deal of time following many different news items, but most of them are too complicated and unclear to make sense of and write about.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine, in my opinion, in many people’s opinion, is not what it appears to be, or what we are told. Yes, Vladimir Putin would like to have Ukraine, its resources, its seaports back under Russian control. Yes, Vladimir Putin does not want NATO forces in Ukraine. But, there is evidence that the Ukrainian government is so corrupt, that Vladimir Putin might be doing the Ukrainian people a favor by taking control of its government.

In the United States, President Joe Biden has shown signs of dementia both before and during his Presidency. There has been substantial evidence of immense vote fraud during the 2020 Presidential Election. The U.S. Supreme Court, Vice President Mike Pence, Republican Senators Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, State Courts, U.S. News, all appear to be in collusion to allow a fraudulent U.S. Presidential Election and a visibly incompetent mentally-ill person to serve as President.

In North Dakota, which is a very conservative state, there is widespread evidence that many politicians with Democratic beliefs at heart, claim to be Republican and run as a Republican in elections, but once elected, they behave like a Democrat. This happens with City Commissioners, County Commissioners, State Representatives, State Senators, U.S. Representatives, U.S. Senators, and even the Governor of North Dakota. North Dakotans don’t seem to notice until the damage is already done.

I think that North Dakota State Representative Rick Becker would have made a better U.S. Senator than Senator John Hoeven. John Hoeven was Governor of North Dakota from 2000-2010, and U.S. Senator from 2011-2022. That’s twenty-two years in politics, and his net worth is about $45million. This is the exact same thing as Senators Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham, they become life-long politicians, are super-wealthy, are so far out-of-touch with normal life, they are like royalty. The U.S. was never supposed to have a permanent ruling-class royalty like the Czars of Russia, ordinary everyday citizens were supposed to participate in government for a brief time, hence avoiding corruption.

In my local District 39, there are multiple people running for State Senator and State Representative. Leading up to this race, there was a recent change in the North Dakota voting district map, which both the timing and configuration appeared to me, in my opinion to involve “gerrymandering”, changing the boundaries to disadvantage certain local politicians and candidates, and give an advantage to others. The first evidence of this, in my opinion, appeared at the District 39 Republican Party Officer election held in Amidon.

At the District 39 Republican Party Officer election in Amidon, from this point on, in my view, there began a division into two factions, one group aligned with business, and the other aligned with conservative principles. In making decisions, the first group asks themselves, what do the wealthy people who backed them expect them to do, and the second group asks themselves what does the Constitution say, how does this affect people’s rights, impact families?

The North Dakota Highway Patrol, in my opinion became the victim of the “Me Too” movement. What most people don’t know, is that there are probably only a total of fifty Highway Patrol a.k.a. State Police in North Dakota. On any given night, there are only about twelve Highway Patrol on duty across the entire state. The next closest HP Officer available for backup, is usually at least eighty miles away. In order for HP Officers to be able to handle potentially dangerous or deadly vehicle stops by themselves at night, the NDHP usually only hire experienced military combat veterans, typically U.S. Marines who have recently gotten out of the military or are already working in another Law Enforcement agency.

The NDHP Officers are usually more no-nonsense when they make a traffic stop. This is because of who the NDHP hires, the NDHP training, and because they want these HP Officers to continue operating in a military-like fashion. Very recently, a woman was stopped for speeding in the Fargo area by a HP Officer, and afterward she made a formal complaint alleging that the HP Officer got too personal with her because he asked her about going to college, what were her career plans, and he later tried to “follow” her on Instagram.

Over the preceding year there had been a couple of allegations by two women against two NDHP Officers for what was alleged to have occurred during a night of partying amongst a handful of off-duty HP Officers. Supposedly, at an HP Officer’s house, alcohol was consumed and so-and-so touched so-and-so.

In my opinion, NDHP Officers have suffered through their own physical abuse, brutality, horrible conditions, dangerous combat deployments, and mental trauma while serving in the U.S. Military. Now in their late 20s to early 40s, they continue to deal with life & death situations almost every day at work. Society is now so stupid, backwards, and dysfunctional, that we tolerate and seem to encourage women complaining that a NDHP Officer was “creepy” at a traffic stop, or touched her in a hot tub at a party. The stupid bitches that want to complain about what I just said, are too stupid to have any idea what the NDHP Officers have been through. Our society is probably not worth protecting or saving, mostly because we have allowed women to destroy it.

A couple of months ago, not far from where I live, a Hettinger County Sheriff Deputy was called to the Mott-Regent K-12 School, for what was described to him as something like a child-custody dispute. When the Sheriff Deputy arrived, he approached and talked to the suspect, who was the father of a child at this school. The father refused to exit the school, he became more adamant, then combative, then began to physically struggle with the Sheriff Deputy.

The witness statements, school security video, and Sheriff Deputy statements, all indicate that the Sheriff Deputy was choked to the point of unconsciousness twice during his physical struggle with the father, who was also trying to remove a knife from the Sheriff Deputy’s belt. It seems miraculous to me, that the Sheriff Deputy was able reach his firearm, fire once, and kill the father, just before he was choked to death and stabbed to death by the father.

For the entirety of the news coverage of this Law Enforcement Officer shooting at the Mott-Regent K-12 School, the name of the Sheriff Deputy was lawfully withheld at the request of the Sheriff’s Office. Just a few days ago, the name of the Sheriff Deputy was revealed in a news article, because it was contained within North Dakota BCI documents. I have met this Sheriff Deputy several times, and he is probably the nicest, least combative of the Hettinger County Sheriff Deputies. I think that it will be very difficult for him to ever get over this traumatic experience of both almost having been killed, and killing someone else, all happening so quickly, unexpectedly in a normal uneventful routine day.

The recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas by an 18 year old, is very suspicious to me. The Uvalde Police Department is going to forever face criticism for waiting between 40 to 90 minutes to confront the 18 year old barricaded within an elementary school classroom where he killed two teachers and seventeen children. Were the Uvalde Police Officers following orders to not attempt to enter the classroom, were they waiting for S.W.A.T. to arrive, or were they just too scared of getting shot?

There are several things that make me wonder what actually happened at the school in Uvalde, Texas: 1) The News Media and Law Enforcement have ceased mentioning what happened to the armed Uvalde Police School Resource Officer who was supposed to be on duty at the school, but was absent from the school at that moment for some reason.

2) It was school policy and procedure for all building doors to remain closed & locked on the outside. Why was one school door that normally remains closed & locked, left visibly propped open at that moment? Who unlocked and propped this door open? Undergoing a Police pursuit, how did this 18 year old shooter know to run to the exact school door that was left unlocked and propped open?

3) Several different firearm experts have added up the cost of the 18 year old shooter’s two rifles, one pistol, many rifle magazines, very large amount of ammo, expensive rifle laser sight, and body armor, and calculated that this is about $9,000 worth of equipment. A) This 18 year old had not worked at his job at Wendy’s for a year, he had been mocked in high school for being poor, how did he get $9,000 worth of equipment? B) He did not have a driver’s license, how did he provide ID to purchase his two rifles and one pistol? C) Most experienced long-time shooters have had difficulty obtaining even small amounts of ammo due to supply shortages, how did this 18 year old manage to get 1600 rounds of ammo?

4) Carrying two rifles, one pistol, and the amount of rifle magazines that this 18 year old had, would be extremely difficult, especially while being the subject of a Police pursuit. Military veterans say that these things would be a difficult heavy load to carry, even with practice while on duty in the military.

5) How was this untrained? 18 year old able to successfully flee from a Police shootout with multiple trained Police Officers, get in a vehicle, drive to the school area, and run on foot and enter the school carrying two rifles, one pistol, and many loaded magazines, a difficult heavy load?

I Hate Ashley Timm’s Tattoos

This evening I saw for the very first time, a video from the TikTok account MsAshleyTimm. In this video, Ashley Timm was excitedly explaining that she was unexpectedly asked to interview for the operations manager position where she worked.

I thought that Ashley was very nice looking, attractive, well-spoken, intelligent, and likeable. However, I was horrified to see that both of her forearms were almost completely covered in awkward tattoos. I was so angry at her for doing this to herself.

Even though I knew it was mean, my anger was greater than my concern for Ashley’s feelings, and I wrote, “You could have been so beautiful without those tattoos, you diminished your potential so much, shows lack of good sense.”

In response, Ashley made a TikTok reaction video, as if I was telling her that she would never accomplish or amount to anything. That’s not what I meant at all.

I commented back to Ashley that she had come to the attention of higher management. I said that she would probably eventually meet the actual business owner or CEO, who might invite her to a dinner party or country club. If not for her tattoos, she could have socialized with the upper class, but those people worked too hard clawing their way to the top, to hang with street people.

Ashley replied back that she had already met the business owners, they liked her tattoos, so what I was saying wasn’t true.

I then did some research on Ashley, where she was working, where she was from, what was her background. She was an unusually interesting person.

Briefly, Ashley was from Corona, California. After graduating from high school in 2003, she worked for five years in human resources for a large retail store. Ashley then joined the Navy where she worked in operations for 12 years, receiving several commendations for competency. She was stationed in Japan, Bahrain, and the U.S.

When Ashley’s second enlistment was completed, she began attending college full-time, I believe studying Criminal Justice. At this same time, Ashley is working full-time at her job, and she has just completed writing a “Lesbian Romance Novel”. Ashley is quite vocal about being a lesbian.

In doing my research on Ashley, I watched approximately half of her TikTok videos. More than once she elaborates that she would rather be immersed in hot lava with piranhas and run through a wood chipper than date a man. She is adamant that she is absolutely not attracted to men.

The more I watched Ashley, the more I liked her. Even being as mean as she can be, Ashley comes across as nicer and friendlier than most women. Just about everyone comments that she looks and acts exactly like the actress Amy Adams.

I do like Ashley, her looks, her personality, her mannerisms, her humor, her competency. Even though she’ll deny it a thousand times, I believe that she likes some men, but will not accept these feelings because they go against everything she wants to believe.

My opinion, is that some of the things that Ashley does, staying excessively busy, the tattoos, engaging in minimalism, and some depravation, is to not allow or block out some feelings that she doesn’t want.

Of course, she blocked me. I don’t blame her, she shouldn’t waste her time and energy arguing with me. Thinking of her, even porcupines like to be picked up, held, and petted sometimes.

Here is the first video that I saw of Ashley:

nothing is final but… i’ve only been working here for like a month 😂😂 #fyp #movingonup #hotelbusiness #GameTok

Southwest North Dakota’s Strange Way Of Handling The April 2022 Blizzard

On Saturday, April 9th, a co-worker said something to me about heavy snowfall forecasted for this coming Tuesday. Recently I had been looking at the weather reports for a few days ahead, but I hadn’t noticed that snow was expected. Temperatures for the past week had been in the 50s, and I thought that winter was over.

I had planned on driving my 1982 diesel Mercedes on the long drive to work for the remainder of the spring, summer, and fall because it gets about 25 mpg. This vehicle is not good at all in the snow, because it only has six inches of ground clearance, it’s rear-wheel-drive, and the front end is very heavy. I am glad that someone said something to me about snow, I fear that I might not have realized what was going to happen in time to know that I needed to drive a different vehicle. I thought about what could have happened, having to drive one hour to work, not being able to make it home after work, becoming stuck, inconveniencing other people, and looking like an idiot.

On Monday I put a full tank of gas in my 1997 Dodge 1500 4×4. I bought this truck for $2,000 a couple years ago after seeing it on Facebook Marketplace. I believed that this was a good deal, even though I recognized that this truck either already had or showed symptoms of everything that had gone wrong with my 1996 Dodge 1500 4×4, including a variety of transmission peculiarities, headlight malfunctions, intermittent starter problems, and more. But, I had already learned several work-arounds for what was wrong, and I had faith in this truck, though it was far from trouble-free. I am emphasizing that there is nothing special about this truck.

At the grocery store on Monday, I noticed that the parking lot was much fuller than normal. Inside the store, almost all of the bread was gone. People were stocking up on groceries in preparation for this winter storm. When I looked at Facebook, TikTok, weather reports, and news services on Monday evening, there were notices and discussions about the blizzard that was supposed to begin at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday morning and continue through 6:00 p.m. Thursday evening.

On Tuesday morning at 3:00 a.m., it began to snow. When I began driving to work at 5:00 a.m., the streets and highways had not been plowed at all, not once. The blizzard wasn’t supposed to start until 6:00 a.m., so I hadn’t expected there to be so much snow accumulation right away. The depth of snow, amount of blowing snow, and greatly reduced visibility, made driving difficult. I was glad that there was no one else on the roads at that time in the early morning.

My initial impression, was that the snowplows in the several counties that I drove through on my way to work, hadn’t started plowing yet, because the blizzard had just started. As Tuesday went on, I spoke to co-workers, checked the news, weather forecasts, and Facebook, and I noticed that citizens, the North Dakota DOT, and Law Enforcement were advising everyone to stay home for the duration of the blizzard, if they did not have to be out.

Readers may be wondering, why was I at work? I have been working at this particular 100-acre industrial site for the past five years, which is manned 24 hours per day, every day of the year, including every holiday. If someone from the company that I work for wasn’t on site performing hourly reporting/documentation, we would all lose our jobs, not just the people who didn’t show up.

On Tuesday evening, I was able to drive home. There were some snowdrifts on Hwy 22, and visibility was reduced at times, but conditions were nearly the same as what a driver would encounter during a typical North Dakota winter snowfall with high winds. Wednesday morning was when some of my co-workers began calling in saying that they could not get out of their driveway because the city streets had not been plowed, or they made it out to the highway, but the highway had not been plowed.

I realized on Wednesday morning that I was possibly going to have to stay at the industrial site where I work for a day or two, to fill-in for co-workers who could not get there. I stopped at a rural small-town gas station to fuel up my truck again. At this gas station, 9 times out of 10 the card reader on the gas pump will not process my debit card, and I have to go inside to pay. But this gas station was closed now, because of the blizzard. Luckily, my newest credit card worked at the pump. However, there was large diesel Chevy 3500 truck towing a large equipment trailer that was parked at an adjacent pump, not pumping diesel, not running, that looked to be stuck there because the fuel pump card reader wouldn’t work.

Later on Wednesday, an older co-worker of mine called and said that he could not come to work, not because the roads weren’t plowed, but because he could not get fuel for his large Chevy 3500 dually, because his local small-town gas station was closed. He and his wife did not have a credit card or debit card. ( Some readers will know and understand why some people don’t have a credit card or debit card, while other readers will not know or understand.)

Between Wednesday and Thursday, three of my co-workers were unable to make it to work, one because city streets were not plowed, one because highway was not plowed, and one because he could not get fuel, the gas station was closed. A fourth co-worker got stuck going home, because the city streets were not plowed. I had to stay at work to cover two shifts for other people, in addition to my own work shift.

When I was able to leave work to go home on Thursday evening, at the same time that the blizzard was supposed to have ended at 6:00 p.m., the roads that I took for the first 30 miles were icy, but not covered in deep snow. Unexpectedly, when I got to within 20 miles of my house, Hwy 22 was closed by a Sheriff and Highway Patrol. There was a tractor-truck & trailer, and two small Kia cars behind it, bumper-to-bumper at a complete stop on Hwy 22, without their hazard flashers on, waiting to be rear-ended, just sitting there about 300 feet from what looked like an accident.

I drove up to the where the Sheriff was standing, and then I could see that something like a Chrysler 300 sedan was stuck or stopped at a snowdrift in the road. There were no emergency vehicles, tow truck, or snowplow anywhere. All the Sheriff had to say was, “Hwy 22 is closed.” I turned around, and while driving back, I stopped and told the male driver of the first Kia car, “There’s a snowdrift, the road is closed, going to be closed for a while.” As I started driving away, I heard this man in the Kia yelling at me out his open car window, “Fuck you, you mother fucking cocksucker.”

I think that the man in the Kia was yelling and cursing at me, because he was wanting to ask me when the road would be clear, and how to get where he was going, but I had no answer for him, I wasn’t in charge of this, and there was no alternate route that I could tell him. Shortly after this, I saw that my Dodge truck transmission overheat warning light was on, so I had to pull off the road at a turn-out and stop. With the slightly bad transmission in this Dodge truck, I can’t drive the whole way home in 4wd-high, or with the overdrive enabled.

I went back to the industrial site where I worked. I looked on the internet, and I could not find any clear answers on what highways were open, what highways were closed, and when closed highways would be open. I hated to even try, but I was tired of still being at work, so I set out attempting to go a different way which I knew would be much, much worse.

I drove 20-35 miles west on a small highway that was icy and had bad snowdrifts, to get to Hwy 85 that had flashing signs saying it was closed, drove 45 miles on closed Hwy 85 that was very icy, with very bad snowdrifts, to get to another very icy, worst snowdrifts-of-all highway for 20-35 miles. Along the way, I saw a couple of 4-wheel-drive vehicles that had gone off the road and became stuck, but no one was still inside them.

I was thinking and realizing, that just because that Chrysler 300 on Hwy 22 couldn’t make it past that one snowdrift when I was 20 miles from my home, I had to turn around and drive 90 miles the other way, and go through at least a dozen snow drifts that were as bad as that one on Hwy 22, but in the dark. If that tractor-truck & trailer behind the Chrysler 300 would have been in front of it instead, that snowdrift would have been obliterated enough for everyone behind the tractor-truck & trailer to get through.

Being upset and dissatisfied with what had happened over the past three days, I was puzzled at how southwest North Dakota had handled this blizzard. It can snow in North Dakota from October through April, often times for days and weeks in a row throughout the winter. Starting out with completely clear & dry roads on Monday April 11, why was it such a big deal and difficult job that snow plows couldn’t run on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday?

To put it a different way, North Dakota has to cope with snowfall from October through April, it can snow for days and weeks in the winter, how could the snowplows in North Dakota be overwhelmed from just three days of snow in April? The highways in rural areas did not have an accumulation of deep snow due to the high winds, the problem on the rural highways was snowdrifts in certain places. It appeared to me that one single county snowplow making one pass per every 1-2 hours would have adequately dealt with the snowdrifts.

The other thing that was very upsetting to me, and handled wrong in my opinion, was that every small-town gas station and rural emergency services building was closed. If I would have had to pick up a stranded motorist on Hwy 22 or Hwy 85, where would I take them? What would I do with them? I couldn’t have taken them very far, Hwy 22 and Hwy 85 were closed, remember?

It appeared to me, that for some reason, the snow plows were held back from going anywhere, or prevented from doing very much on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in certain counties. I don’t know what political fight was going on, or if some type of statement was trying to be made, by making sure that roads would be closed, instead of open.

Here are a couple of Facebook comments from Friday, from people wondering the same things that I was wondering:

Connie O. H.,  “Are the county plows out on the county roads?”

Thomas J. S., “It was a big snowstorm, and certainly a serious challenge to life and limb, but IT WAS NOT a “blizzard” by the definition used by the National Weather Service…The people of North Dakota know what a blizzard is, and this storm lacked 2 of 5 required parameters.”

The more I thought, “What would I have to do with a stranded motorist? Take them back to my house, feed them, find them a place to sleep?” Then I realized, that’s why all of the small-town gas stations were closed, the owner/managers/workers didn’t want people being dropped off, having no place to go, and having to stay inside a gas station & convenience store that normally closes at 6:00 p.m. Like Daytona Beach during Black Spring Break, all of the businesses in North Dakota close during a blizzard.

In order to understand how much North Dakotans really do not want to help other people, here are some quotations that I copied and pasted from Facebook:

Ryan B., “They should have let them sit there. There is no reason official’s should risk their lives for stupidity.! Before anyone says you don’t know their reasons let me help you I don’t care!”

Lisa K. to Ryan B., “EXACTLY!! It was all about THEM! Now they have put other peoples live in danger because they were a-holes!”

David H., “Lots of warning should of just let them sit.”

Jason B., “Its like camping….for morons.”

Pam S. A., “stop defending these fools”

Joyce S. P., “…our first responders should NOT be expected to risk their lives because of someone elses stupidity and gross neglect of common sense…there needs to be a huge fine AND jail time for any and all that require a rescue like this UNLESS it was truly a matter of life or death that caused them to be out on the roads.”

Elizabeth K., “Shame on those people that put others at risk!”

Bob B.K., “And Why were they out on the roads???? GOOD GRIEF!! People must think that it will never happen to them.”

Mavis T. B., “Some people have absolutely NO common sense.”

Dana S., “Had to travel during a no travel warning didn’t they.”

Rock T., “You know the old saying. There’s a blizzard coming, let’s drive around and get stuck so people can risk their lives saving us!”

Do North Dakotans even know that there are heavier snowfall areas than North Dakota?  Alaska, the mountains of Colorado, Utah, Washington, and Oregon have much heavier and more frequent snowfall than North Dakota.  Do people in AK, CO, UT, WA, and OR want to deny drivers who get stuck in snow assistance?  Probably not, because it is a common occurrence for drivers to get stuck in the snow in winter.  And these states make an effort to keep the roads clear, even when it is snowing and the wind is blowing.

Rising Fuel Prices Makes Me Even More Proud Of My 1982 Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel

When I was a kid growing up in the 1970s in Florida, my family was very car-conscious. My parents had a love of cars, that had to do with their appearance, performance, style, and as a status symbol. My father was an attorney in a small town, he didn’t make enough money to buy what would have been his first pick of new cars, but by looking in the newsprint Auto-Trader Classifieds and used car lots, he was able to buy a Lotus Europa, an Austin-Healey, a Porsche 914, an Audi 5000, and a couple of Jaguar XJ6s.

All of these used cars that my father bought needed never-ending repairs. Especially bad, by far the worst, were the XJ6s, so he bought two of these. The 1978 XJ6 became abandoned in the side yard, because it wouldn’t start. I needed to go somewhere one day, and I took the keys to it, it started, and I drove it. I thought that I was going to get in trouble for taking it, I was a sophomore in high school, but I didn’t, so I just kept driving it.

At my high school, in several of my classes, was a tall, pretty girl, whose parents owned five car dealerships. Through high school, she sent me a subscription each year of the duPont Registry car magazine. The duPont Registry at that time was a thick, gloss print magazine of exotic cars for sale: Porsche, Ferrari, Aston-Martin, Mercedes, Maserati, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Pantera, BMW. Here is a link in case you want to see what this magazine looks like these days https://www.dupontregistry.com/autos/

( The tall, pretty girl in my high school classes, the closest resemblance in appearance, demeanor, and speaking, is this girl Jane from Vero Beach, Florida https://www.tiktok.com/@nachoslicker/video/7074611747117714731?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc&web_id6947746048560809477 )

Looking at and reading about all of the exotic cars for sale in the duPont Registry, and trying to work on the broken cars that my family owned, was probably the main reason why I wanted to go to college to become a Mechanical Engineer. I wanted to understand, design, develop, and work on cars, and be able to afford the cars that I wanted to own.

When I finally graduated from college with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, one of the first jobs that I had was working at a bridge construction company in Florida. At this company, there was an engineer in his 50s named John who had worked all across the U.S. and South Africa. He considered himself to be an expert on Mercedes, especially diesel Mercedes. Nearly every day for the time that I worked there, we talked about Mercedes, especially because he was always going to look at cars that were for sale. Back then, you always wanted to see its “Book”, it had to have its “Book” if it was going to be considered an “honest” car.

As it was becoming the later half of the 1990s, from the automobiles that Mercedes began introducing, it appeared that the prominence of Mercedes was over. The peak of Mercedes design, style, sophistication, engineering, and distinction had been reached with the mid 1980s-early 1990s “S-Class”, designated within Mercedes as W126 (You don’t have to watch the entire 26-minute video below, this is just to get the general idea.)

The Pinnacle Of Mercedes, the W126

The 1990 300SE shown in the video above was roughly an $50K-$60K car when new. Though this car was well-made, from new it required regular scheduled maintenance at the Mercedes dealer, which was expensive compared to a Ford or Toyota. Once this vehicle became 5-6 years old, repairs on something like the air-conditioner could be several thousand dollars at a Mercedes dealer.

These mid 1980s-early 1990s S-Class W126 Mercedes were intricately complicated in electrical, fuel injection, and transmission. Once these cars became 10 years old, their used resale price was down to $8K-$20K, compared to their original sales price of $50K-$60K. One reason being, if the transmission needed an overhaul, the engine & transmission had to be removed from the vehicle as one unit, the transmission alone could not be removed by itself.

In my opinion, which is probably the truth, Mercedes began to be so electrically over-complicated because it was in competition with Lexus. Prior to the Mercedes W126, Mercedes owners had been satisfied with a more spartan vehicle: sturdy seats, plain dash & door trim, straight-forward analog gauges, simple controls, durable transmissions, reliable engines, and very high build-quality. These were the Mercedes W116 and W123:

Mercedes W116, 300SD shown above

In the video above, this shows an S-Class W116, which was a luxury vehicle. However, the Mercedes W123 consists of 240D, 300D, and 300TD which were used in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle-East, and South America as personal vehicles and taxis:

Mercedes W123, 300D Turbodiesel shown above

In the 1970s-1980s there were three different World events that caused gas shortages and periods of high gas prices in the U.S. In 1973 there was an Oil Embargo by OPEC. In 1979 there was the Iranian Revolution. In 1980 there was the Iran-Iraq War. At that time, diesel was less expensive per gallon than gasoline. And diesel vehicles got higher mpg than gasoline vehicles. In the U.S., the vehicles available that used diesel, got good mpg, and were reliable were Volkswagen Rabbit, Isuzu Pup, Audi 4000/5000, Mercedes 240D/300D/300TD.

The origin of my 1982 Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel is as follows. A farmer named Don Zimbleman of Fullerton, North Dakota bought this Mercedes new at a dealership in 1982. On November 17, 2020 there was a Don Zimbleman Farm Retirement Auction where this Mercedes was sold as lot #50. Don Zimbleman died four days later at the age of 85. Here is his very interesting obituary https://www.dahlstromfuneralhome.com/obituary/donald-zimbleman

The person who bought this Mercedes at auction for about $2,600, was a Missile Systems Crew Chief at Minot Air Force Base. He removed the exhaust, fuel pressure limiter, turbo boost limiter, and installed a larger turbo. A little more than a year later, in 2021 an oil field worker from Watford City bought this Mercedes, with the intention of putting its engine into a Toyota truck, and scrapping the car. In the Fall of 2021 I bought this car for $3,000, and saved it from being destroyed.

My 1982 Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel

When I bought this 1982 Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel, no one was impressed. I take that back, one of my co-workers who is in his early 60s, he recognized the car before he recognized that it was me driving it. He told me that he had always wanted one, his employer let him drive his in about 1990, it was very fast he said, it would go about 120 mph. How fast does this one go? About 125 mph, it has a larger turbo, and no exhaust on it.

But the important thing now, is that it gets about 30 mpg, because most of the driving that I do is not in stop-and-go-traffic, I mostly drive on highways in rural areas.

An Examination Of Golf Cart Girl Cass Holland

Over the past six months I have watched roughly a dozen TikTok videos from “Golf Cart Girl” Cass Holland. On the surface, in these videos Cass Holland is young, very attractive, funny, and she has a good disposition. But Cass is a good example for me to use in order to explain what other women are doing wrong.

The first few Golf Cart Girl videos that I saw of Cass Holland, I didn’t like her. I thought that she was a typical big-boobed, blond, dumb, complaining girl, with a stupid job. A couple of her videos were about some golfer who was trying to impress her and get a date with her. He took out a hundred dollar bill, tore it in half, and told her she could get the other half if she had dinner with him, something like that, he may have offered her additional money I believe to have dinner with him.

She didn’t like this man’s tactics, she thought about what to do, and she handled it appropriately, herself. She didn’t stomp off to the Club House trying to complain about him to the golf course manager or other golfers, trying to get him into trouble, making allegations of sexual harassment or solicitation.

As I continued to watch more of Cass Holland’s videos, it became apparent that she gets propositioned all day, every day at work. Sometimes subtly, bluntly, cleverly, awkwardly, funny, embarrassingly, appropriately, inappropriately. It is part of the job, in a way.

How can I say that being sexually harassed is part of any woman’s job? To answer this, is going to take more than one or two sentences, this may take more than several paragraphs: There are things that men do for fun, hobbies, sports that they play. Golf is a sport that men play during the day, that tends to have mostly successful, professional men that are business owners, managers, or are wealthy and able to be absent from a place of employment for the entire morning or afternoon during the middle of the week.

As part of a morning or afternoon outing with a group of men golfing, they engage in joking, amicable, friendly, boasting, competitive, or sparring conversations. And, just as likely consume some alcohol while golfing and socializing. In this frame of mind, it is not surprising that these men have something to say to the Golf Cart Girl, that they think is funny or entertaining.

In order to not ruin the jovial mood, make any golfer feel bad, or begin a confrontation, a smart Golf Cart Girl will not lash out and attack every golfer who says something stupid to her. Stop and think about this. If the Golf Cart Girl got into a fight every time a golfer said something that she didn’t like or thought was inappropriate, would ANY or MANY male golfers choose to buy drinks from her? Would male golfers choose to not even continue going to this particular golf course if the Golf Cart Girl was contentious?

In the 1990s there was a best-selling book titled, “The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People”. In this book, the author states that the first three habits are, “Begin with the End in mind. Put First things First. Think, and Choose your response.” I don’t know how or where Cass Holland learned or came to know these three things, but she does.

Beginning with the End in mind, I think that Cass Holland thought about the money that she stands to make, the pleasantness of being able to work outside on a beautiful golf course, and the interesting successful people that she gets to meet at this particular place of employment. Putting First things First, Cass understands in her mind that selling as many drinks as possible and receiving as many tips as possible is the First Thing.

When men golfers say things to Cass that she does not like, she is able to Think and Choose her response, that is based on her already keeping the End in mind, and putting First things First. Is it best to say nothing at all? Is it best to say, No, but thank you. To say something funny? To let them down easy? To give a warning? To act ambivalent or un-phased?

Does it really matter that a man has said something stupid to her? Or does it matter more that she is getting off work in a couple of hours, has sold $2K worth of drinks, and has made $400 in tips that day?

From what I have seen, 90% of women wouldn’t last much longer than one week as a Golf Cart Girl at the golf course in the Phoenix area where Cass Holland works. 30% of women would be trying to find someplace to park and hide so that the didn’t have to work. 30% of women would be glaring, sneering, and snarling at the golfers. And 30% of the women would be too desperately trying to go home with a millionaire golfer.

Something else that Cass Holland handles well, is not being fooled by every handsome millionaire golfer that tries to get into her pants. When you see one of the TikTok videos that I include below, you will understand that all men are going to try to get her, but she has to reject 99% of men in a way that is not going to offend them.

Being careful to maintain a reputation of not being fooled by other women’s philandering husbands, has won Cass tolerance, if not admiration from women golfers and the wives of golfers. It also helps that Cass deals well with women golfers, even though women are in the minority and don’t generate as much in drink sales or tips.

Like I said, 90% of women would not last much longer than one week as a Golf Cart Girl at a prestigious gold course, and one of the reasons why is that most women not only do not get along with men, they don’t understand how detrimental other women can be to their success.

Because of the way that Cass conducts herself, not fighting with men even though they may have said something inappropriate, not hurting men’s feelings when she rejects them, not being fooled into sleeping with other women’s husbands, not going home with every handsome millionaire who asks, and is pleasant with women golfers, the women likely think very highly of Cass and want her to remain working there.

As far as women are concerned, it’s probably O.K. or amusing to them that their husbands, fiances, or boyfriends look forward to seeing the attractive Gold Cart Girl who always rejects their advances, but not in the least bit funny if there was any chance that she would agree. And perhaps the majority of women could be persuaded, which is why the majority of women couldn’t keep this job for much longer than one week.

Lastly, I want other women to take notice that Cass Holland does not have any tattoos, piercings, or smoke, like a street prostitute or side-show freak.

Polygamy Gets Women Off The Street And Keeps Them Out Of Trouble

When I was a child, a teenager, and later as a young man, I thought that polygamy was wrong. I believed that if polygamy was allowed, every celebrity, professional athlete, and wealthy man would have several beautiful wives, and that there would not be any beautiful women left over for normal marriages.

I could easily see, that young women and women in their thirties would jump at the chance to be one of the wives of a celebrity or professional athlete, to be photographed and videoed, shown in magazines, tabloids, and on television, to be talked about. Showing off their expensive jewelry and expensive designer clothes.

As I grew into my late thirties and early forties, primarily because of the internet, I began to lose all belief that women had any virtue, goodness, trustworthiness, or morality. Of course, growing up I witnessed and experienced some badly behaving women, but I thought that this was just SOME of them, I didn’t know that just about ALL of them were like this.

When the internet gave women anonymity, the ability to write about what they thought and what they wanted with little fear of consequences or being shamed, it revealed that women were about the least trustworthy, most treacherous, most immoral thing on this earth.

The internet showed that women, for attention and for money, will not hesitate to take off all of their clothes and perform any and every sex act imaginable. Prior to the internet, women tried to maintain many illusions, such as they were saving themselves for marriage, sex was something they engaged in with people they cared about, or that they were monogamous with their husbands.

It wasn’t just the proliferation of internet pornography that showed what women are really like, dating websites revealed even more about the true nature of women. Dating websites provided millions of written statements from women expressing what they really, truly wanted, that was in essence: Women wanted a tall, handsome man, that earned a large amount of money, who would pay for their house, automobile, clothes, food, jewelry, accessories, travel vacations, children, pets, hobbies, not question them, and allow them to do whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted.

Consequently, many men came to the realization that what women were saying, was something like, “Women want to be married, but they don’t want to be a wife.” Which means, women want a man to pay for everything, but women don’t want to do anything in return.

In the Bible and the Quran, there is a great deal of writing on women, describing the deception and treachery of some women, and describing the virtuous acts of other women. But the theme of both the Bible and the Quran is consistent, women need supervision, order, and direction in order to prevent them from succumbing to their own nature of deviousness, deception, treachery, immorality, destruction, and evil.

Because of the failed social experiments of the United States, where women were mistakenly given the right to vote, the ability to work outside the home, given the idea that they should pursue careers or higher education versus becoming married, that they could divorce their husband whenever they liked, that the Government would force men to give disobedient women a substantial portion of their earnings, we have had a collapse of families, society, communities, law & order in the U.S. We can’t even have a competent President fit for office, thanks to women voting.

There are many signs of society and women being ruined. Overweight women with their hair dyed purple, blue, red, or pink, covered in tattoos, their bodies mutilated with piercings, smoking and using drugs, glaring, leering, sneering, neglecting their children, being loud and contentious, plotting ways to make false allegations against men.

One way to prevent young women from becoming like this, from ruining themselves, is through Polygamy. If successful and wise married men in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, who have a wife in her 40s, would take-on an additional young wife of about 20-22 years of age, they could spare her and keep her from all of the misery, mistakes, and suffering that non-attached women put themselves through, because they don’t know any better.

Ideally, young women would pass from the love and protection of her own father and his household, into the care, love, and protection of her new, older already-married husband’s household. In Church or school interaction, families could plan and decide together who would be a suitable, compatible household for their daughter to transition into. With everything planned in advance, ahead of time, young women wouldn’t have to go through a period in their lives with no direction, no supervision, not knowing what to do, vulnerable to being taken advantage of, or being influenced the wrong way.

There are many reasons why it is such a good idea for a young 20-22 year old woman to become married to a successful man who has a wife in her 40s. A man who works, can’t be at home 24/7 to watch his wife and make sure that she isn’t getting into trouble. As soon as he leaves home, his wife could be talking to some other man on the phone or internet, inviting some man or naer-do-well people over to his house, using illegal drugs, leaving home to go to a bar or drug-house, inviting men over to have sex with her. But none of this is going to happen if this man’s 40 year old wife is standing there watching his 20 year old wife.

The first wife in her 40s, now has a renewed purpose in life, she can watch the second wife in her 20s, teach her, instruct her, mentor her. The first wife in her 40s, she doesn’t have to do all of the cooking, cleaning, and laundry herself, she can delegate some of this work to the 2nd wife in her 20s, and supervise that this work is being done correctly.

The first wife in her 40s is probably tired of having sex with her husband, she would probably prefer that her husband just leave her alone in this regard. Now, the first wife can get a good night’s sleep, without being disturbed or bothered. The husband can enjoy and look forward to being with his new second wife in her 20s every night, just like it was his honeymoon all over again, with a young lady who is soft, affectionate, and eager to please him.

So as the reader can see, when successful men take on a younger second wife, it is actually doing women a favor, because it keeps women from getting into trouble and ruining themselves.

Isabel Paige Is Quitting Tiny-House Living, The Truth I Want You To See

During the past ten years there has been a popularity of people writing about and making videos showing Van-Life, Tiny-House Building, Tiny-House Living, Off-Grid Living, Sustainable-Farming. Unfortunately much of this is misleading or even fake. Ordinary people, especially young people are getting the wrong impression of what is actually going on, and they are making plans to copy what they see, not understanding that this is not real.

One of the most popular Van-Life, Tiny-House, Off-Grid, Sustainable-Farming YouTubers is Isabel Paige, with over 600K subscribers to her channel. Myself and a few other people, have tried to point out that Isabel Paige has over-glamorized Tiny-House, Off-Grid, Sustainable-Farming

My criticism of Isabel Paige’s YouTube videos, is that I believe her viewers do not realize the amount of help, assistance, support, and backing that her parents provided. That Isabel’s viewers do not know that her parents own the land where Isabel built her tiny-house, that her parents’ fully equipped second home is several hundred feet away, that her parents bought the land in 2015 to legally grow marijuana, that’s what kind of “farm” it was.

Supporters of Isabel respond to these criticisms by saying that Isabel already said that her parents own the land, or that her father helped build her tiny-house, but there are always signs that many viewers don’t know. For instance, a viewer in Florida tried to start a GoFundMe in order to raise money for Isabel to have car repairs, not knowing that Isabel’s parents are multi-millionaires. How this viewer got this idea that Isabel didn’t have money, may have come from Isabel talking about trying to save money for her tiny-house by working as a waitress, and working at a farmer’s market.

Another area of criticism that I and few others had about Isabel’s videos, is that much of what she was doing was counter to survival. Examples of this, frequently bathing naked in the icy river where she could have fallen and gotten hurt; trodding through the snow and performing chores outside with clothing that was not protective enough; going far from home into the woods without a firearm; not spending enough time actually farming.

This week, Isabel announced that she was moving out of her tiny-house, leaving the farm, and that she was now embarking on a life of travel and videography. There are probably a thousand different responses to this news, myself, my response was something like “that figures…I knew it…I told you so…she was never into farming…she grew out of it…living in a tiny-house is not fun after all.”

Probably most of Isabel Paige’s viewers don’t think that she did anything wrong. I do. I think that there were many young people that used Isabel Paige’s videos as an excuse not to go to college, not to go to tech or vocational school, not to seek an apprenticeship, not to do any real life planning, but think that they could just drift around and daydream. I think that some people planned on homesteading, following Isabel Paige’s videos as a model.

Below, I want to explain some of the unique things about Isabel’s circumstances, so that people can clearly understand that Isabel had a lot of support and backing, especially from her father Steve, that most people do not have to this degree. I will try to explain this using a kind of time-line.

From 1978 to 1983, Isabel’s father Steve spent five years in college studying primarily mechanical engineering, fine arts, and studio arts. Twelve years later, Steve began designing, manufacturing, and distributing a variety of consumer products via three separate companies that he founded in 1995, 1996, and 2008. These products that he produced in his own manufacturing plant, and contracted foreign manufacturers to produce overseas, were sold around the world. The sale of one of his companies in 2013 is estimated to have yielded several million dollars. Steve’s financial success through the 1990s-2000s, allowed his family to live in a $2.5 million home overlooking Puget Sound in Seattle, which they still own and occupy.

In 2013, Steve started a legal marijuana growing company in eastern Washington State. In the 2013-2015 time frame, Steve purchased several large acreages in eastern Washington. At one of these locations there was a single-family home that was recently built by either Steve or the previous property owner, that Steve and his family used as a vacation home until he and his wife were ready to relocate from Seattle.

In approximately 2016-2017, Isabel was going to college in Australia, then living in New Zealand, then living in India to pursue Yoga.

In June of 2018, Isabel was living in a van in Hawaii, and working as a waitress.

In the end of Summer 2019, Isabel was living in her parents’ $2.5 million home overlooking Puget Sound in Seattle, and working as a waitress. Here is a video showing the view of where Isabel was living at her parents’ Seattle home in 2019, plus several views of Isabel visiting her parents’ second home in eastern Washington, and an explanation of how she had started out going to college in Australia, then living in New Zealand : https://youtu.be/kYtYKpB2h8o

In the Fall of 2019, Isabel got the idea that she would like to go live at her parents’ second home in eastern Washington, she was talking about doing it, but she kept her job in Seattle until April of 2020.

In the Spring and Summer of 2020, Isabel is living in her parents’ second home in eastern Washington. In the Summer of 2020, Isabel and her father begin building Isabel’s tiny-house. Isabel’s tiny-house is completed in about November of 2020.

In January 2021, Isabel goes on a trip with Hannah Lee Duggan in Florida. Spring of 2021, Isabel does some more interior work on her tiny-house. In June 2021, Isabel’s boyfriend Logan from Tennessee comes to stay for a while. In July of 2021 Isabel, Logan, and her family begin building an “Art Studio” that is slightly larger than Isabel’s tiny-house. November of 2021, Isabel and Logan finish construction of the Art Studio.

January 2022, Isabel is alone in her tiny-house. 2nd half of January, Logan returns, he and Isabel both get sick with Covid. February 2022, Isabel and Logan are done living in the tiny-house and the farm, they are leaving and not coming back. Here is the video about leaving: https://youtu.be/QooZrcx0mm8

In the Fall of 2019, Isabel was saying that her parents’ farm in eastern Washington was where she wanted to spend the rest of her life. She moved onto the farm in the Spring of 2020. In the Summer of 2020, Isabel and her father began building her tiny-house. In the Summer of 2021, Isabel and Logan began building their Art Studio. In February 2022, she’s done???

Most people, including myself, if I lived in a large $2.5M house overlooking Puget Sound in Seattle, I would be beyond satisfied with that. It doesn’t get any better than that, I don’t need to move. But let’s say that I did have a life-long dream of living in the mountains, in a forest, beside a river, and that I had a tiny-house and an art studio built there, WTF!, how does your supposed spend-the-rest-of-your-life/life-long-dream get boring in less than two years, and you’re ready to walk away from it all?

I am trying to point out two things. One, that off-grid/tiny-house/sustainable-living/homesteading must not be as exciting, fulfilling, fun, and glamorous as portrayed in YouTube videos if it gets old, boring, tiresome after less than two years. Two, that what other people might have intended to copy as a model for off-grid/tiny-house/sustainable-living/homesteading, saving and using every resource they possess to accomplish, wasn’t actually a long-term plan, it was all just like a privileged child’s backyard play set.

Update 3/13/22:  For a more complete discussion about Isabel Paige quitting her tiny-house, off-grid, sustainable-farm, and beginning to make van-life videos, watch Jasmine Cherry’s YouTube video about this, and read the comments to this video:

The Mormon Church Does A Good Job Keeping Girls From Smoking, Alcohol, Drugs, Tattoos, Piercings, Obesity, And Promiscuity

When I was living in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2007, the real estate prices kept getting higher and higher, way out of proportion to the local wage rate. Even though I loved living in Flagstaff, I couldn’t afford to live there much longer, I wasn’t making enough money to keep up with the cost of living.

I began trying to figure out where I could move to, that had the same climate, geography, terrain, and small-town lifestyle as Flagstaff, but didn’t cost so much. Several people who were older, more experienced, and more travelled than me, told me that I would like Idaho, that I would do well there, that there were a lot of Mormons there, that I would fit in.

I was not a Mormon, and I didn’t know very much about Mormonism. What I thought that I knew, was that Mormons didn’t smoke, drink alcohol, use drugs, and that they were very family oriented. What’s wrong with that? Who could argue against that?

When I arrived in Idaho, one of the very first things that I was surprised with, was how beautiful, healthy, and friendly the women were. The women really did look different, they had much healthier looking hair, very clear skin complexions, straight white teeth, strong erect posture, and unashamed, direct, friendliness.

As I began living in Idaho, I started to learn more and more about Mormons, Mormonism, The Book Of Mormon, their culture, values, and lifestyle. I was invited to attend Mormon Church services. I began to see that the Mormon Church required a complete commitment, unlike some of the other religions that I had previously been exposed to in the past.

Just off the top of my head, some of the things that I recall about the Mormon Church: Monday was “Family Day” for staying home and doing things with family; Tuesday might have been women’s day to volunteer with food processing, food storage, food distribution in order to maintain a six-month supply of food; Wednesday was something like Bible Study or Church Work Groups; Thursday? Friday? Saturday?; But Sunday was the big day where all Mormons attended their specifically assigned “Ward”, had a general meeting of the congregation with everyone present, then broke up into several different study-groups, some of them for adults, some for children, some for men, some for women.

Because I was most likely a Methodist from my Huguenot heritage, had attended a Catholic elementary school, and my next-door neighbor while growing up was the Pastor of an Evangelical Church, I was dumbfounded when in a Mormon men’s study group, someone read from the the Book Of Mormon or the supplemental Doctrines & Covenants, “Just as God evolved, so too can we evolve, and become gods of our own planet one day.” What???

To me, at that time about 40 years old, that was sacrilege to suggest that God “evolved”, and that we could “become like God”, and “become gods of our own planet one day”. That was about the most heretical, sacrilegious thing that a person could say. I believed that there was no way that I could participate in the Mormon religion and the Mormon Church.

As time went on, years passed living in Idaho, I learned more and more that the best employment was reserved for Mormons in good standing, that the Mormon Church kept thorough records and tabs on everyone. Average jobs in Idaho were for average Mormons. Bad, low-paying, undesirable, fringe jobs, left-over jobs, the crumbs were left for non-Mormons.

However, the crime was not bad, there was no disorder, the cost-of-living was not high, life was calm and peaceful in Idaho, all of these things were the result of firm Mormon control. I could not make very much money in Idaho, because I would not become a Mormon. All I had to do was go along with every part of the Mormon program, and I could then have a good job and a beautiful wife, they would just pick one from the herd for me.

In my mind, I knew that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the strenuous, constant demand of time from the Mormon Church for all of their required activities. If I had a beautiful Mormon wife, day-by-day she would become more and more disappointed in me, and I could see that I would have ruined her life. This would be especially cruel, because Mormon girls are so pure, innocent, trusting, caring, nurturing, and loving.

In the strong, committed, tight-knit Mormon families, they are very focused on how they raise their daughters. Mindful to be gentle and loving with their daughters, but making sure that their daughters become accustomed to work, being disciplined, not succumbing to laziness, or forming any bad habits. Their daughters are shielded from the bad things in the world, not exposed to violence, hate, bad language, vices, sexuality, immorality, or bad behavior, so that they become trusting, kind, caring, nurturing, gentle, and loving.

One of the things that the Mormon Church, Mormon community, and Mormon families do, is offer to any Mormon, that if they are not going to remain committed, and follow the rules, that they should depart from the Church, community, or family. Inevitably it does happen, often with teenagers, that they want to rebel against one or more of the Mormon practices. This can manifest as a teenager experimenting with alcohol, drugs, or sex. The Mormons believe that it is better for these apostates to leave, rather than infect and pollute others.

On the internet, there are hundreds or thousands of ex-Mormons who try to share their bad experiences with the Mormon Church. At first, I read their stories and saw them as a warning against the Mormon Church. But as I began to read each of their stories, especially the stories from ex-Mormon women in their twenties and thirties, I saw that as they were breaking away from the Mormon Church or shortly thereafter, they were engaging in sex outside of marriage, using alcohol and drugs, getting tattoos and body piercings.

These ex-Mormons were trying to tell their individual stories like the Church did something wrong, whereas I felt, “You fools! You idiots! You morons! Look what you are doing! Look at what you are doing to yourself! The Church didn’t do anything wrong, YOU ARE!”

It’s like watching a train wreck, a Mormon mother and father raised a young girl with love, kindness, thoughtfulness, discipline, and purpose, shielding and protecting her from everything bad in the world, helping her to grow up strong and healthy. And in return, the very first thing that she does when leaving home to go to college, is start smoking, drinking alcohol, using drugs, and having sex!

I say, if she wants to be a dirty whore, let her! Be done with her! But don’t let her back into your lives and your community. Let her live in the world, as an unwed welfare mother, with her STDs, her tattoos, and her body piercings. Let her live with the blue-haired, lesbian, Democrats.

Explanation Of Depression And Suicides In Dickinson, North Dakota

A few days ago I saw an article titled, “Stark County officials notice an increase in suicide cases”. I am going to share the link to this article, but there is very little substance to it, and not much information: https://www.kfyrtv.com/2022/02/05/stark-county-officials-notice-increase-suicide-cases/?fbclid=IwAR2Hxlq8d2PDe8I6mHqgABe56vQVZhcm-EcO3IpxUlqdQrrsBZ-oCoMTtEM

I am going to explain some of the causes for depression and suicide in Dickinson, which not only do city officials, politicians, leaders, organizations, associations, and citizens not ever acknowledge or talk about, they all actually contribute to the problem!

Western North Dakota is very sparsely populated, there are fewer than 800,000 people in the entire state of North Dakota. From November through April, for these six months the weather is usually very cold, grey, with sustained high winds. The very low population, and very bad weather for most of the year adversely affect people, culture, and social interaction.

Some of the results of very low population, low socialization, and prolonged bad weather are: The ratio of men to women is 3:1 ; the women who are here try to have an ugly appearance and a nasty personality; the attractive women with good personalities leave the state; high rate of alcoholism; high rate of illegal drug use; employment of people with repeat criminal history; very low education level; local Police dealing with everyone as if they are all criminals; Catholic Church trying to take advantage of the situation by making things worse, manipulation, and control.

Men in Dickinson are faced with literally everything I mentioned in the paragraph above, on a daily basis. When men go to work in the morning, have any work break during the day, and when they get off work in the evening, they will most likely never see a nice looking woman for weeks on end. However, every day they will see overweight, misshapen women, with jack-o-lantern faces sneering, leering, glaring, and trying to act like burly men.

At work, trying to complete work is often dangerous and frustrating. It’s having to deal with co-workers and management who have very low education level, criminal records, who come to work under the influence of drugs and alcohol, whose focus at work is not on the job at hand, but getting high and drunk as soon as possible. Their actions endangering everyone else, their stupidity causing failures, their mistakes they try to blame on others, the success of others they try to take the credit for.

Because of the extremely low education level in Dickinson, the high number of criminals being employed in Dickinson, the high rate of illegal drug use, the high rate of alcoholism, the Dickinson Police take the approach that everyone in Dickinson is a criminal, drug addict, and driving under the influence, and they don’t hesitate to stop and question everyone as often as possible, as if they are prisoners in a prison.

If a man working in Dickinson did try to socialize in one of the few ways possible, by going to a bar, the Police in Dickinson note every vehicle parked at bars, and try to follow and stop the vehicle for any reason possible. If a man tried to meet a woman on the internet in Dickinson, if the woman was attractive, 95% likelihood it’s a fake profile created by the Dickinson Police in order to entrap someone.

Everything that I have described so far, the Mayor of Dickinson likes it this way, the Chief of Police likes it this way, the Chamber of Commerce likes it this way, the business owners like it this way, the Catholic Church likes it this way. Why do I say this? Because none of them ever, ever admit to what is going on, try to change what is going on, but only help to continue it. The majority of people in Dickinson being uneducated, in the criminal justice system, with a fat ugly nasty wife, turning to alcohol, and illegal drugs, a controlled wage-slave likely to have an early death so that they can’t draw any benefits.

The Catholic Church in Dickinson helped to create and perpetuate these miserable conditions in Dickinson in order to maintain power and control over people, and also because the Catholic Church is ruled by Satan, whose purpose is to torment people. The Catholic Church encouraged and fostered: a low education level; women to be sloven, overweight, nasty, contentious, and bitter; people to use alcohol and smoke; people to engage in crime, illegal drug use, and gambling. All of these things are a stumbling block for people, keep them in a state of torment and trouble, prevent people from becoming self-aware.

The Catholic Church in Dickinson has plotted, planned, and schemed to get politicians, the Mayor, the Chief of Police, the Chamber of Commerce personnel, School Board personnel, organization and association personnel, County Commissioners, City Commissioners, State Representatives to go along with it’s program of controlling people by making them miserable, uneducated, criminal, substance addicted wage-slaves.

The Catholic Church built the new St. Alexius Hospital in Dickinson, which is a jobs-program for Catholics, and another mechanism of control used by the Catholics. At this time, the Catholic Church in Dickinson has a scheme to control mental health services in Dickinson: through planting politicians at different levels who have been placed to direct and control funding; through planting personnel within organizations, associations, and groups; through control of the facilities to be used.

Everything is set up in Dickinson for ordinary working people to be as miserable as possible, and if they turn to health care or mental health care in Dickinson, it’s like running into the hands of your captors.

( Note: If you go to a business in Dickinson, especially a hospital, clinic, or mental health facility, and you see ham-fisted, cankle-calf, no-neck, battle-axe, jack-o-lantern, nasty, burly women, get out! It’s Catholic controlled, and ruled by Satan himself! )

So in summary, it’s Satan and the Catholic Church schemes in Dickinson that is causing depression and suicides, it’s part of their plan.

Allegations Of Improper, Possibly Illegal Voting At ND District 39 Meeting

In November of 2021, the North Dakota Legislature approved a re-districting map that was required due to the results of the 2020 U.S. Census that showed a change in population in different areas of North Dakota. For reference, here is an article describing this https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/north-dakota/articles/2021-11-10/north-dakota-legislature-approves-new-redistricting-map

In the Dickinson area where I live, I was aware that the re-districting map caused the need for there to be a new election of District 36 and District 39 officers, because some of the current elected officers no longer resided within these re-drawn districts.

In April of 2021, Andrew Kordonowy, Kari Roller, and Aliesha Simons were elected as District 36 Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary/Treasurer. For reference, here is an article about this, which mentions who the other candidates were https://www.thedickinsonpress.com/news/district-36-elects-new-chairman-as-constituency-disappointed-with-state-gop

For the past several weeks, I was interested to see the outcome of the District 39 re-organization meeting, partly because I wanted to see what district Andrew Kordonowy, Kari Roller, and Aliesha Simons belonged to now. I was hoping to see Luke Simons begin the process of returning to the North Dakota Legislature as a Representative, because I think that he was wrongfully removed from office last year, without due-process.

The District 39 re-organization meeting was advertised for several weeks in advance, and was to be held in the very small town of Amidon located on Hwy 85, on Monday evening January 31. This location was said to be “neutral”, which is probably true, but it is also centrally located within the re-drawn District 39.

On Tuesday evening, the day after, I watched the over 2-hour video of the District 39 re-organization meeting, candidate introduction, voting, and results. Here is this video

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?height=314&href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fndgop39%2Fvideos%2F628839555060044%2F&show_text=false&width=560&t=0

Ben Simons, who had been the District 39 Chair prior to April 2021, to my surprise he lost the vote about 70-150 to Jacob Odermann. (If you look at the April 2021 District 36 election of officers, John Odermann ran for Vice-Chair against Kari Roller.)

Aliesha Simons, who had been the District 36 Secretary, she lost the vote about 70-150 to Hope Klein for District 39 Secretary.

Kari Roller, who had been the District 36 Vice-Chair, she lost the vote about 97-110 to Andrew Larsen for District 39 Treasurer.

The reason why I am focusing on Ben Simons, Aliesha Simons, and Kari Roller, is because each of these Republicans who had been district officers prior to the re-districting, now held no position. The second reason why I am scrutinizing these three election results, is that from the vote count, there appeared to be about 150 voters that came to back the NEW candidates.

I was performing research on Tuesday and Wednesday about what the agenda of Jacob Odermann and Hope Klein was, who was backing them and why, when I began reading allegations that on Monday evening two large party-buses serving free alcohol had brought people to the Amidon District 39 meeting to vote against Ben, Aliesha, and Kari. This would explain the seemingly strange 150 voters who came to back the NEW candidates.

I think that it is wrong, and unethical to round-up people using a party bus serving alcohol to transport them to a District meeting with instructions on who to vote for. However, what probably makes this ILLEGAL, is that one individual paid the $39 Republican Party registration fee for each one of these voters. Once a voter receives a monetary benefit, specifically a $39 Republican Party registration fee payment, and is instructed to vote a certain way, this is ILLEGAL:

From

 

Whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote or withhold his vote, or to vote for or against any candidate; and

Whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

The other thing that I can not understand, is why at this District 39 re-organization meeting, where Ben Simons had been District Chair in the past, the designated re-organization meeting leader, immediately turned over the leadership of the meeting to Jacob Odermann the instant the 70-150 vote count was read for District Chair, and Jacob was already prepared with how to proceed with the remainder of the nominations for officers, voting, vote counting, agenda items, and the over-head-projector screen presentation???  It was as if this election result must have been guaranteed prior to election night?

I Shouldn’t Be Recommending Dickinson To Anyone, But I Did

When I look at the statistics for this blog each day, there are hundreds of views from more than a dozen foreign countries. The majority of my blog views are not from North Dakota. I think that North Dakotans intentionally try to not read my articles, because they don’t like what I have to say.

Ninety percent of my viewers don’t even know why I am writing about Dickinson, North Dakota. During the 2007-2014 North Dakota Oil Boom, this place was like no place else in the world, except for Williston, and Watford City. It was a spectacular mess here, in both a good way and a bad way.

Western North Dakota is very, very sparsely populated. The land is rolling grassland prairie, with extremely high winds and very cold temperatures in a long, more than six month winter. Most of the local young people with any intelligence, ability, talent, or ambition tried to get out of here because it was miserable.

Up until 2006, most of the local jobs paid about $8 per hour. Why only $8 per hour? Because everything was controlled. Wealthy people, high-paid professional people, business owners, property owners, bank employees, hand-picked government employees and civil servants, all played a specific role in keeping wages low, controlling who got hired for what job, who was able to live where, who was approved for a mortgage, car-loan, or student financial aid.

However, when the 2007 North Dakota Oil Boom began due to both the high price of oil at that time and the invention of hydraulic fracturing oil extraction, the immediate demand for labor caused oil companies, oil service companies, tanker truck companies, and heavy construction companies to offer $16-$23 per hour to anyone who could just show up.

Within a couple of years, the wage-control and employment-control in Dickinson was shattered. Anyone could get a high-paying job in Dickinson, it didn’t matter what their last name was, who they were related to, who they knew, where they were from, or what they looked like.

The housing control, that was a different story. There became a great shortage of housing. Local wealthy people, property owners, business owners, and banks focused all of their anger, hatred, evil, and wickedness on taking advantage of out-of-state workers seeking a place to live. Old one-bedroom apartments that had rented for $300 per month prior to the oil boom, quadrupled to $1,200 per month. Homeowners rented tents in their backyards for $750 per month.

Large real estate developers from out-of-state began building extended-stay motels, apartment buildings, and single-family homes as fast as they possibly could to try to cash-in during the oil boom. In 2013, the newly completed extended stay motels wanted $750 per week for a room, that’s $3,000 per month for a room. (Keep in mind, the mortgage payment for a $600K house is $3,000 per month.)

After the North Dakota Oil Boom ended in 2015 due to the price of oil falling and remaining below $80 per barrel, most of the out-of-state workers left western North Dakota and returned to the states where they came from. It took a couple of years, but by 2017 the apartment owners across Dickinson had to greatly reduce the cost of apartment rent, there was an abundance of vacant apartments.

Homeowners and real estate agents in Dickinson refused to believe that the oil boom was over, and continued to have houses for sale at ridiculously high prices. That was O.K., because there wasn’t anyone around to buy these houses anyway. In the small towns within a 60-mile radius of Dickinson, there began to be many “for-sale-by-owner” houses for $50K-$150K that were a good deal for this area, because the recently created higher wage-rates had not fallen very much.

For the first time ever in my life, after having lived in eight different states, now in my late forties, living in Dickinson I found that housing was affordable in comparison to local wage rates. For a large two-bedroom apartment, my rent was only 10% of my income. For my next-door neighbor who had kept his job on an oil drill rig, his rent was only 6% of his income.

I am well aware that this affordability of housing in comparison to wage-rates only exists because of the over-supply of apartments after the North Dakota oil boom ended in 2015, and most out-of-state workers left this area. If there was a large influx of workers to this area, the apartment rents and house prices would go up, and the wage-rates would go down. So I can’t be widely advertising for people to move to Dickinson, because it would ruin everything.

Several months ago there was a middle-aged woman living in Massachusetts who began writing to me about the difficulties that she was having. There were few job openings where she lived, competitiveness for jobs, low wage-rates, mistreatment and being taken advantage of at work, very high housing costs, crime and drug dealing where she lived.

I felt sorry for this woman. After corresponding with her for a few months, and reading her blog post articles, I believed that she was intelligent, hard-working, dependable, and independent, and that she could do very well in Dickinson. I know for a fact that she would have no difficulty obtaining employment in this area because of the kinds of jobs that she had had in the past, nor any difficulty finding a cheap place to live, that was much safer than where she is currently living.

I explained in detail to her why and how she could move here, but to my amazement and disbelief, she said, No, that’s O.K. I couldn’t believe this! She had described to me that she was doing worse than living paycheck-to-paycheck, she couldn’t afford the house that she was living in, her employer was abusive, her neighborhood was bad, her neighbors were criminals and drug dealers. I didn’t regret trying to help her, but it turned out to be a waste of my time.

A couple of weeks ago, there was a young couple located in the Tampa area, who had been sleeping in their Honda Pilot SUV for several months because they couldn’t afford a place to live. Both she and her boyfriend had jobs, but they were not making enough money, they had bad credit, and no one would rent an apartment to them. I watched about ten of their TikTok videos where they showed where they had been renting for $1,000 per month, but this condominium unit was sold to someone else.

This young couple, the boyfriend had a college degree in something like marketing, both he and his girlfriend had student loan debt. They didn’t seem like bad people, criminal people, or drug addicts. I had lived in Tampa for about five years, I know how unfriendly and cut-throat that area can be, it’s almost like a competition or a game that people make to try to hurt and take advantage of weak people. I can see people in Tampa trying to make things as hard as possible for this couple, rather than just helping them a little bit.

I wrote this couple a concise, thorough explanation about the cost of living in Dickinson versus the pay-rate, that they would be much better off trying to live here, but I got absolutely no response whatsoever. This made me angry. Like I said, I know what it is like to try to start out in Tampa after just graduating from college, it’s hard, it’s scary, but I know from experience after having lived there, becoming professionally successful and making money there, that it wasn’t worth living there if you want to have quality of life.

It is unbelievable to me, that I can explain to people living elsewhere, that the amount of hostility and aggressiveness that they deal with minute-by-minute driving in Massachusetts or Tampa, that is the result of scarcity of personal space, competitiveness for jobs, money, housing, every resource, that they don’t have to live like that at all, they can leave, they don’t understand.

Can anyone living on the east coast or west coast understand how much easier life is, how much less stress there is, when your housing cost is less than 10% of your income? I have read that due to the real estate hyperinflation in Boise, Idaho, that local people are having to pay up to 50%-60% of their income for rent now. Yet when I do try to explain to people how they don’t have to live like this, no one listens to me.

I understand why people do not want to live in North Dakota, most of my blog post articles are expressing something negative about North Dakota. But aside from everything else that I have written in this blog post article so far about economics and cost-of-living, North Dakota is least affected by riots, looting, civil unrest, crime, drought, flooding, tsunamis, earthquakes, Covid, taxes, restrictive laws, excessive regulations, and social class snobbery.

I tried to never, ever, write a blog post article describing that Dickinson is a good place to live, but it turns out that apparently no one listens to me when I explain its benefits. I don’t want many people to move here, but I don’t mind if someone in a really bad living circumstance would take advantage of this brief time and place of affordable cost-of-living.
