This is how they do it…Facebook is targeting Conservatives. They are lying if they say they’re not!

SO I was minding my own business and doing what I do daily –reading the news and sharing info with my Facebook FRIENDS and the group I run about the city I live in and politics when I was suddenly thrown off of my facebook and had to go through a litany of questions concerning what I had posted in the last month and if I had actually posted any of these hundreds of items and if I wanted them removed.

Well, everything they showed me I did actually post. Every friend they showed me I had actually accepted their friendship. Every picture they showed me I actually put up…. and it occurred to me that I had been asked to do this same thing last week and had to change my password which was a pain in the ass because it means I have to go through all my phone, games, etc and everything that I do in conjunction with facebook and the app and change the password AGAIN!

So, I go to my phone and from there I can see what it was that I posted that was removed and considered spam and it was an article from Breitbart??? about a candidate running in the Democrat Party that is someone I am NOT voting for that advocates for everything I abhor about the left.  This is Spam and taken down?  So if I post anything from Breitbart will I eventually lose my account?  If I post anything negative about a Democratic candidate will I lose my account?  Did I actually hear facebook say they weren’t targeting Conservatives??  They’re lying!!

Breitbart is not spam. It is a Conservative news agency.  Does anything from Media Matters get removed as spam? I’m curious….let me know in the comments if you’ve had articles from Media Matters thrown off because if this is not the case then I’m calling BS and lies to Facebook and it’s CEO and the legislators that are saying it’s not true.

My opinion is that I am backing a Conservative candidate in my state and that I posted an article on his opponent that explains why –and I posted it into a Conservative Group no less!!!

This is a technological war against the Right.  Don’t grow complacent or believe

otherwise.

I’m very disappointed in my fellow Conservatives & Republicans

Day after day on social networking I’ve come to notice a trend.  Group-think is the new Conservative view –the same view that the Conservatives condemn the Liberals for.

In this country we have primaries.  Sometimes our President endorses a candidate and sometimes he does not. Not all the candidates that have been endorsed by President Trump -whom I happen to LOVE with a capitol L- have been the best candidates and they have not all been the winners.  We do have people in this country who think for themselves –thank God.

In Florida we have a race for Governor with a dozen or so candidates.  Donald Trump endorsed Ron DeSantis and someone I admire very much, Ron Paul, endorsed Bob White.  My choice is Bob White. I like where he stands on the issues including jobs, education and corporatism in the Florida legislature.  These issues are very important to ME and I agree with him. So I took it upon myself to help his campaign and to try to awaken other people to the fact that he’s a pretty damned good candidate.  It’s a free country, we have a 1st Amendment and I am not an advocate for Group-think.  I thought my fellow Conservatives and Republicans were against this sort of thing as well since it’s what I see them faulting liberals with day after day on Facebook & Twitter –but it’s funny how it’s AOK when they do it or don’t agree with you.  In most places that’s called hypocrisy.  And I really hope that we are not resorting to that sort of thing.

Today I’ve been called stupid by a fellow Republican Conservative and Biker.  Yesterday I was verbally gang-hammered by Bikers for Trump. ALL BECAUSE I chose to think for myself and look at the candidates and make a decision of whom I agreed with the most and took it upon myself to help their campaign.

I could go on and on but I’m going to stop here.  If we don’t want to turn into the very people we protest against, why do we resort to acting like them when we don’t agree?  Name calling?  Vicious verbal attacks?  What’s next?

Lets try to be bigger than that.  We have primaries for a reason.  You can make your decisions during primary time and when the nominee is voted upon then we basically come together and work as one for the side we have chosen that is supposed to represent our values.

I’m so tired of being disappointed in my fellow American citizens. In every direction I look we’re at each other’s throats. Even those on the same side.

If, during primary time, you don’t like a candidate –then just ignore them…but to jump on the hate bandwagon and act the same towards those on your side as you act towards those who are diametrically opposite of your very core beliefs is really disheartening.

I’m a Conservative, A Republican with a side of libertarian. I love my President and my husband and I ride an Indian Motorcycle…..so I think I fit into the groups “Bikers for Trump” or “Trump Voters who Ride Motorcycles” and unless the name of the group is changed to Group-Think for Trump or Zombies With One Brain for Trump then there is no reason to attack me.

That is all.

And yes, this is me.  I’m a Real Woman and I am voting for Bob White.  This doesn’t mean that if you don’t vote for Bob White you’re not a real woman it just means that I’m a woman and I’m real.

The 14th Reason Why –Why is Big Pharma Given a Pass Once Again?

13-reasons-why

I just finished binge-watching “13 Reasons Why” and I come away feeling that it’s probably the most important piece of work in decades and that every family, legislator, and news reporter needs to sit down and watch it through.

It touches on all the reasons why kids are hurting, shooting up schools, and committing suicide. It’s nearly perfect in showing how cruelty and bullying from peers, is affecting a great number of kids and it touches on many of the issues human-beings are facing head-on from the “Me Too” movement to divorce, homosexuality, race and culture differences to how technology has magnified bullying.  It touches on gun ownership, teen sexuality, teacher/student relationships, opioids, heroin usage, runaway teens and school sports pressures in ways that make you question how we must do a better job in bringing up happy, healthy children in a world with so much “noise”.  It touches on the fact that we are not perfect beings and this comes across in very dramatic yet poignant ways in so much of the series that makes it one of the most important pieces of work in quite some time.

But it does leave one thing out and once again I am bothered very much by the absence of one particular issue that has affected me personally and so many families that they have taken to social networking groups to understand what’s happening to their children and themselves.  That issue is SSRI, ADHD & ADD medication.  There, I said it.  Big Pharma once again gets away unscathed and doesn’t even get a supporting role in one of the most startlingly truthful series in years.

Do I find it surprising? No, because I’ve come to learn that Big Pharma always gets a pass.  It’s most likely because when I open a newspaper or turn on the TV or try and have this conversation with those legislating our government, I find that Big Pharma is paying for most of the ads in media, Hollywood and in lobbying our legislators.  Once again, they win and this issue gets glossed over.  But I’m not going to let that happen.  Not today.

They do touch on “medication” in one story-line where a young girl believes that she is bi-polar and she takes herself out of the equation by entering a facility with a controlled environment to get healed from her mental illness.  We are left to believe that all is right with the girl after this scene and the story-line moves on.  They never touch on this issue again and it’s kind of bewildering when so many of the children I know and have known in my lifetime have been prescribed SSRI medication outside of controlled environments and were left to continue on with their daily lives dealing with the bigger issues that this series does put in the spotlight.

Yet, how many teens have committed suicide because they were put on medication and/or taking it sporadically? How many teens have taken to shooting up schools after being put on medication rather than having to deal with the real issues of bullying or something as simple as lack of nutrition or lack of communication with adults?  How many students are walking around feeling dead inside because they are on medication that was never even approved for them yet were prescribed by doctors who have received perks? Do I sound like I’m making grand statements with nothing to back this up?  Well, that’s just not true at all.There is plenty of  evidence to back this up but when anyone speaks about it they are reduced to ridicule or verbally admonished by the media or “trolls” on the internet.

Maybe this is an issue that needs a series all on its own because “13 Reason’s Why”, the greatest series about teenage angst ever made, leaves out the one most important issue that so may teens are dealing with today! Our children are being prescribed mind-altering medication and no one is doing a thing to stop it and we can’t even talk about it!

Now I could get into how many school shootings were done by kids on/or coming off of SSRI medication or how many children commit suicide for the same reason but who will listen?  I have screamed about this issue for years on social networking. I have run for office because of this issue simply so my voice would be heard by a wider audience. I have debated. I have been interviewed. I have written. I have screamed. And I am not alone in this. Day after day I see the pain coming from mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, wives and husbands who form social networking groups to ask if they are the only ones suffering through the pain of having been on medication and trying to wean themselves off only to have more medication prescribed.  Day after day I see parent’s break down because their child hung themselves or cut themselves or hurt other children. Day after day I see people –real humans– in fear because they no longer have feelings and are completely apathetic to life because of medication that was prescribed by doctors that they trusted.

I was very happy to see this series “13 Reasons Why” and I watched with so much gusto only to be disappointed at the end that Big Pharma once again played no part in being a catalyst for what’s happening in the world of teenage pain.  I have seen a lot of criticism because the media and press feel that the issue of “mental illness” was not given as a reason for teen suicide but they did touch on mental illness –what they never touch on is that the greatest cause of teen suicide is the medication itself.  How do I know this?  Because I live in the real world and I talk to people everyday who explain their life before medication and come into social network groups to explain their life after taking medication.  I know because my own 15 year old daughter walked out onto a roof and hung herself because she was on Zoloft –which incidentally I found out after she died, was never even approved for children under 18 with depression. It was only approved for children with OCD –my daughter did not have OCD!

Hopefully this series, when it continues into its third season, touches on this issue.  It needs to be talked about.  We need to be told the truth. We need to stop having this industry with deep pockets who supports all the media given a constant pass.  We need to have the conversation once and for all and we need to stop it from happening over and over again.  It’s a real issue, it’s probably the biggest reason why so many kids are dealing with tragedy and the silence is deafening.

 

 

 

 

How to Host A Political Meet & Greet and Why You Should

 

Don’t you think in this political climate that you should take the time to meet your local, state & federal candidates?  That you should learn all you can about them since they will most likely be calling the shots on how much money is coming out of your paycheck, how clean your local environment is and what laws might be infringing on your liberties without your consent?

Well, I’m here to tell you that you can simply hold a political meet&greet at your home inviting your friends, family and neighbors and since Summer is almost here….what better time than right before the 2018 Primaries and Election?

Step by Step Instructions:

#1 Buy a Cocktail Shaker – That’s right….it’s called a cocktail party and all you need is a bottle of vodka, some ice, a fruity juice or if your taste run more to the exotic side try a bottle of Kahlua.

Bailey’s Martini

Tito’s Cocktails

or if you think you’ll get a big crowd than mix up a large batch of Sangria! You can go White and add some Red & blue berries to add a festive political touch 🙂 Try this recipe from Recipe Girl

#2 Make Some Munchies:  Now that you’ve figured out the beverages how about some finger sandwiches or perhaps a nice dip? In staying with our political theme there are lots of ideas right here, and it’s all healthy too!

#3 Create Invitations:  It doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming.  You can simply run to the store and buy a pack of invites or you can get creative and print a batch on your computer. But I suggest you make the “put in the mailbox” kind and not the ones generated on a computer and emailed because it’s not personal, it’s easy for people to ignore and it might get lost in spam or just a mass email delete.

Here is a great site on Lucid Press that shows you how to create your own invitations or you can simply take a walk over to your local Michael’s where they have an isle filled with every sort of stationary imaginable including blank cards, stickers and envelopes and you can print up some striking invitation that is sure to peek the interest of your neighbors or you can find stationary and just print a simple invite which can be folded and placed in your friendly neighborhood mailboxes.

#4 Call Gigi and Make arrangements to have a Meet & Greet with Bob White, Gubernatorial Candidate for Florida! Just drop me an email @ bowmancomputers@aol.com and let me know dates and times of availability and we’ll get Bob right to your door!

It’s important that you know who you’re voting for and if you want to meet the best man for the job than lets get this party started!

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Paul Endorses Bob White for Governor of Florida and so do I!

 

14e47455b8cf8cc53362e91abaf8a651-rimg-w720-h480-gmir

 

I know I have good taste. I met Bob at a local Republican Meet & Greet and knew in my gut that he was the kind of man Florida needed.  A lot of people are at work behind the scenes with very deep pockets trying to turn Florida blue….from the anti-2nd Amendment democrats to those who would like nothing better than to turn Florida into the next Welfare state and take away all the wonderful freedoms it has to offer both economically and constitutionally –which is why I left the state of New York after running for NY State Senate when I realized how doomed I was if I continued to live there with it’s high taxes and abundant nanny laws.

So lo-and-behold a short time later guess who endorses Bob White?  None other than Ron Paul!  Ron Paul red-pilled me back in 2007. After finding out about this stalwart Congressman from Texas who was running for President I got on the Liberty train and started the Long Island Ron Paul meet-up and from there I started the organization Liberty Candidates where I would help to promote Candidates running for office on the platform of Liberty which was my way of helping to bring more like Ron Paul into the fold through the election process.  It was sort of a ‘draining of the swamp’ back in 2010 – 2014 through supporting candidates who were adept at following the Constitution.

31764613_10155179765891415_2289319526996639744_n

Well, this just proves to me that my instincts are good.  Before Ron Paul’s endorsement I jumped on board the Bob White Campaign trail as a a ground organizer for Saint Lucie, Martin, Indian River, Volusia and Brevard Counties.  We’re looking for leaders to step up and take action for this grass-roots campaign so if you’re looking to get involved with getting a Liberty Lover and Constitutionalist elected as Governor of the great state of Florida and to #KeepFloridaGreat then send me a note and we’ll get you started with a Tee-Shirt, business cards and bumper stickers.

We’re also looking for people to host meet-and-greets for their local friends, family & neighbors so if you are interested in doing so just message me with possible dates and we’ll work it out.

This is how you do it.  I worked for a campaign that managed to get a blimp in the air!  We can do this.  #WhoIsBobWhite?

Facebook Jail, “Safety” & The War on Words ….

Facebook has a jail and they suspend your account –but they do it for your “safety” and they do it for the “community”, they say.  Also, for the “community” you can put the words “porn” or “xxx” into the search bar and see some pretty explicit photos without even having to join a private group.  I did just that and I got to see up close and personal some of these photo’s.  This one titled XXXFactor is a “group” and I was able to see all the photo’s without “joining”. This one is a “page” under Hunting/Shooting Range with 344K likes and I’m pretty sure they’re selling sex, they even have a phone number listed –here is the “about” entry:

Our company organizes falconry in Azerbaijan. We provide professional and the best service for our clients. Arriving at the airport the client is welcomed through VIP entrance. Due to wish the client may stay in 4-star “Hunting-Day”. Hotel for the first and last days of his visit to Azerbaijan. You can hunt to 7 kinds of birds in Azerbaijan. (See below the graphic).

You can highly appreciate the professionally prepared dishes by our cook. Our company guarantees interesting and fascinating hunting for the clients. Enjoy the hunting with us. +994773201000.

Just click on the word “photos” and I’m sure you’ll see what VIP ENTRANCE they’re talking about.

 

Now, I can continue putting everything in the search bar from sexy children to sex and animals the amount of “Safe Community” I will see is astounding.  I have decided not to post the photo’s I see because I don’t want to stoop to the low of Facebook and their hypocritical safety standards —  and I can only imagine the algorithm I will now get thrown into doing some Facebook searching for this article.

So apparently in the world of Facebook it’s okay and safe to see public photo’s of explicit sex but if you’re a conservative pundit or if you’re posting an article from The Ron Paul Institute that has a typo….you get your account suspended.

Yes, I had my account suspended for posting this article on facebook –and for the record I now believe Ron Paul had no idea about the “racist newsletters” because this article has been on his “Ron Paul Institute” newsletter since 4/17/18 and it has still not been corrected.

IMG_0276

Imagine my surprise when my account closed up and I received the notice that my account was suspended for 24 hours because I had posted the above article and it was against their safety standards.  Imagine my surprise when after the 24 hours they let me back onto my account but I wasn’t allowed to post anything (we’re on hour 47 as of the writing of this article –will hour 48 be the magic number when I can finally emerge from my facebook jail cell?)

IMG_0258

I went to the Facebook Community Standards and read about how I had violated my terms of service by posting an article with a typo and committing this unsafe atrocity.

IMG_0273

I am not alone. I am in good company.

This week black Conservative comedian and pundit, Terrence Williams, was suspended for posting the abusive messages that HE received.  They were actual screenshots of hateful threats he had received from Liberals.  He’s not the only one that received similar treatment. Conservative Canadian columnist, Jamie Glasov, posted screenshots of the actual threats he received and had his account suspended as well.  But were those who did the threatening and sending the abusive messages suspended? According to Terrence Williams, they were not.

Another big Facebook suspension came down earlier this month when Conservative Sister Pundits, Diamond & Silk, had their page with over a million followers, suspended for being “unsafe to the community”.  At the recent questioning of Zuckerberg  from the Congressional testimony of the House Energy & Commerce Committee he was asked about Diamond & Silk and claims that “In that specific case our [Facebook] team made an enforcement error and had gotten in touch with them to reverse it.”  Whew, it’s good to be a well known friend of President Trump so that Zuckerberg can call in and unlock the keys to the jail cell.  But what of the little people like me?

So I asked around to other ordinary folk why they had received Facebook suspensions and this is the response I got:

One woman, Dottie Nelson, was suspended and then forbidden to post in groups for 2 weeks for forwarding an article from over a year ago about the taking down of historic statues.  So apparently Facebook is not only using it’s new algorithm for enforcing current community standards, they are looking back to see if you EVER posted something “unsafe” –so in actuality no one is safe if you ever posted or re-posted an article with, say,  a typo that has not been corrected :).  Mrs. Nelson also stated that Facebook ignores you if you complain and do nothing to remedy the situation so you are guilty no matter what the circumstances.  Unfortunately Zuckerberg can’t be questioned for each and every one of us folks who are unsafely re-posting mainstream news.

One gentleman said he was suspended for posting a picture of a dead coyote from 2010.  Another said he was suspended for not supplying his real first name, but rather his nickname.  A woman in Australia was suspended for posting about her menstrual pain and another gentleman was suspended from Facebook for posting about being bullied.

I could go on and on with the millions of stories about people being suspended, and Facebook is a private company so they can really do what they want, but I’m here to call out the hypocrisy about their safety standards because as far as I can see, photos or drawings of people having sex with animals or people making pages to disguise prostitution as hunting expeditions are unsafe when they are put on a public forum rather than a private group and anyone can see them including children.

My advice is to download onto your PC all the photo’s you have uploaded to Facebook from your phone because one day you just might lose your account permanently if you manage to post more than one article with an “unsafe” typo or post screenshots of people verbally abusing you more than once.  The Terms of Service say you can lose your account permanently if you’re a serial offender.  No judge, no Jury, just a public hanging.
