The Conspiracy Theory?
Where and what is the Conspiracy theory regurgitated by the far and alt-right, really?
I liken it to this: If a man/woman is caught, red handed, with a knife in his/her hand, a body is laying on the ground – lifeless and the assumed killer stands above him/her saying “It’s a Conspiracy! I’m innocent” – then he/she is taking into custody and tests are taken (DNA), matching of fingerprints and blood type, wound marks, documents are provided that he/she purchased and owned the weapon (knife) in question, had motive (discovered during questioning), the stabbing was witnessed by 5 different people, who all stated that there was no one else on the scene, other than the victim and the assailant.
When a person (or persons) has committed a crime – it’s easy to state ‘Conspiracy’ – but it’s the facts that are unearthed that prove right or wrongdoing. When all of the facts point in one direction to an obvious crime (or many), one has to question: Where’s the conspiracy? The crime has been committed and the facts are coming from the assailant’s own files, words and deeds.
If the above crime was witnessed, in your own neighborhood, would you call the facts as you saw them or would you join in with the assailant to say ‘Conspiracy!’ ? Would you say ‘I never liked the victim he/she had it coming!’ or would you be appalled and shocked, but then wait for the facts to prove innocence or guilt?
I just read that the vile Marjorie Taylor Greene got a rally to boo House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband after he was hospitalized in the violent home attack by a tRump supporter. What if it were YOUR husband, wife or child? Would you say “It’s okay – the crowd can boo, because they….feel like it.” Have so many just become this apathetic to the human condition?
That is exactly what is happening in our country and we are all the victims to the previous regime’s tyranny, violence, graft and greed – and the GOP’s ‘killing & slashing’ of rights and democracy.
Maybe we ARE in a nation that just looks away from crime and corruption, looks away from our justice system, implies ‘faith’, where there is none, has no regard for the actual Constitution (other than cherry picked portions that will serve an agenda) or a unified democratic nation to justify their allegiance to the real monsters – ‘Demi-Gods’ – that they have created. And for what? What is their gain? Seriously – What is their gain?
God help our Nation this November 8th. Please VOTE BLUE… for our generations and the generations to come.
Remember the bully on the playground?
Remember the bully on the playground that had his/her ‘rat-pack’ behind them, always obeying each command – mostly because they were afraid of being beaten up too – or they had simply found a similar mean soul, or souls, to align with?
Remember the cliques in Jr. and Sr. high – that if you were unfortunate enough to get on their ‘wrong side’, the vicious rumors they would create would spread like wildfire throughout the school? No matter if they were false or groundless, they stuck.
Multiply this by a trillion and we have Social Media today.
The mean guys never ‘go away’ – they just multiply like roaches as they align throughout the world. They don’t grow up, or get their hands slapped back – they don’t have to. They fit.
And the cliques that ‘Ruled the School’ and the vicious rumor mills? They’ve all shifted into the Corporate and Political world as we know it today. They’ve grown up and now rule over the bullies as well.
There was a time when the Higher echelon didn’t associate with the low-brow bullies – it didn’t look good to business nor political spheres – but here we are in 2022:
The power hungry elites are manipulating and controlling the low brow bullies (and the bullies don’t even recognize it), and when they no longer have any use, they will be tossed aside – as all cliques toss aside those that are ‘beneath’ them. Have them at dinner or lunch at the estate? Not on your life.
And what are we left with?: The cliques. Not just your garden variety High School clique – but a very malignant force governing our country, our freedom, our liberty.
And remember that we didn’t associate ‘Political sides’ with the bullies and cliques in the day – we simply recognized the vile and corrupt entities that they were. They weren’t Voted onto their self made pedestals; they simply grabbed them and ran with it. The only purpose of their existence was/is to make others feel bad, powerless and scared…..or less than.
They called the kids Nerds, back in the day. They’d be given this moniker for a myriad of reasons:
Through a faith affiliation, or being exceptionally smart, or poor, or non-athletic, or shy, or unattractive.
God forbid if they had an actual disability or handicap. It’s obviously not so different today – but instead of being whispered about, behind their backs – social media has offered a billboard to plaster, smear, threaten and humiliate on a grand scale…..and that doesn’t take into account the face to face encounters of everyday living. It can be hell on Earth for these kids. Most of us have encountered it, to some degree – large or small.
But it’s not Hell on Earth for the bullies and cliques. They get a pass on the damage they’ve created.
So we have the spectrum: The youth that are bullied, the Millennials that try hard to ‘put it past them’ and build a life for their families and in business, and the older adult – who bears the scars – but is supposedly wiser for the years and told it was the past, move on. Well, since the 2016 election no one gets to move on, not without a fight. Laws have been shot down that allow for better mental health care, social security, overall school funding for elevated programs and education including the addressing of bullying, reproductive rights, religious freedom (to chose which if any we care to affiliate with or be governed by), equality, police safety, environment, gun violence and control….the list goes on and on. This isn’t just a grocery list, folks, these are a Living breathing List of Human rights under our Constitution being slaughtered.
The bullies and cliques are back and in full swing. But this time we DO have a VOTE on who remains on the self made pedestals.
And if I’m being too subtle here let me make myself perfectly clear: The GOP, tRump, the Right-Wing members of SCOTUS and the Senate ARE the Cliques and the bullies are: the Right-Wing, White Supremacists’ and radical semi-automatic gun toting war mongers.
And THIS is not High School, folks.
This is your very freedom and democracy at stake, and there will be no ‘getting over it’ if we don’t VOTE BLUE all the way. Mic Drop.

Hell hath no fury…..
It’s not about caring for life. Over 40 years ago the Republicans and Democrats agreed that Roe v Wade was in the best interest and safety of women and health. The Baptist church was in agreement, the then seated President Ronald Reagan, was in agreement. (1973)
Then came the rub by televangelists, 5 years later, wielding political/church power, backing the GOP financially and making abortion rights a political cork-screw.
For anyone who saw the ruling of yesterday as a victory, think again. It had nothing to do with actual abortion, or women’s rights or protection of an unborn or born child. It was the political agenda – the cork screw being tightened. Period.
Sorta like “A vote for us is a vote for babies. The other guys HATE babies, so vote for us.”
The diabolical GOP “40 year Project” has found a solid footing as of June 24th, 2022.
It isn’t happenstance that Roe vs. Wade was overturned now – it’s a muscle flex by the GOP stating plainly: “We have the power – and we’re flexing it – no matter what the general public wants. “
And this is only the beginning. VOTE BLUE….to Save your vote.
I propose a few new DFL Slogans:
We The People
💙 For Those that didn’t hear, wouldn’t hear or chose not to hear tonight’s Democratic Convention (August 18th, 2020) – missed the rally call of the nation…In EACH and every speaker, video and person – just like you and I – that have been affected by our world, as it stands, TODAY and what we have to lose….what we’ve already lost and what we will lose if we don’t take a stand, right what is wrong and fight against a tyranny that is threatening our existence as a democracy in this great nation. It is no longer party against party – this fight is against the downfall of moral decency, freedom and equality, economic and health survival and honor. There is no place now to hide or bury our heads from the truth that is displayed every single day – in our streets, in our communities – around our nation. Hate, violence and division is not the call of a moral president and administration that wants to build a better nation. It is the call to destroy a nation and take power over the freedom and liberties that we know, that our forefathers knew and freedoms that our children and grandchildren may Never know.
I may be 1 voice…but many voices together build villages and nations that are good and righteous – that recognize each and every individual as part of the whole. Some say: All government is corrupt – All politicians are the same. But what is a country without a free democratic government?: A dictatorship. It is chaos. It is totally corrupt and built on fear and power. The speakers tonight didn’t speak of hatred, they did not speak on the furtherance of bigotry and division. They didn’t hold up Bibles as props. THEY didn’t LIE. They brought issues to the forefront that are indisputable. While the current president Tweeted his anger at the truth and facts – these candidates and national supporters were imploring people to rise up and BE BETTER than THIS….and to be able to look their children….or their maker….in the eye and say: I did what was right for all people and for the generations to come.
💙I WILL VOTE BLUE – I WILL SUPPORT JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS – I WILL SPEAK UP and I WILL CONTINUE TO HELP REBUILD THIS COUNTRY ALONG WITH PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN AND VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS. And I will sing a song of freedom and democracy again. – Donna Freeberg 💙
Let them eat cake….New Mantra
Today I read a response to a meme that shook me to the core.
By now, we’ve all seen the meme:
I wasn’t enraged because the response was vicious or cursed – on the contrary: It was elitist and dismissive and only one sentence:
“Mountains,out of mole hills….typical.”
Thus…it garnered an immediate response. But NOT my typical response. NO:
“It might be an entirely different “mole hill” if your daughter, wife or son was: black, gay, Jewish, disabled, sexually assaulted or abused, killed or raped.
Of course that never happens, does it? Or maybe it just doesn’t happen to you. And the defense of the assaulter can always state that “It’s just a mole hill” – can’t they? Now they can – now they have a green light.
THAT may now be the “typical” – let them eat cake. The Twitter feeds were lit up with “The minute T wins, I’m gonna grab me the nearest pussy.” (Hundreds literally) NONE of this is typical – and I’m offended to my very core.”
YES: I’m offended.
YES: I’m scared that hate, bigotry and permissiveness is the new Mantra of our highest office.
And if YOU’RE not scared – your mountain must be very high indeed.
Your Political Legacy
I believe that there must be – in each state a leader, an appointed official, a Governor or Representative – that the members of said state recalls as a “big mistake” – due to distrust of current leaders or recent or past economic/legislative undermining.
Please do not make the same mistake with Donald Trump. He is not anti-establishment, he is not anti-government. He is anti-American Humanity. This would be like handing the country over to Castro or Mussolini. Who he is against will perish or go to war within the country and community. Who he is for economically will gain. Our military will turn into a gorilla mechanism – with no leader of experience – the humane military will leave the service and when war ensues the draft will be put back into place.
With no social or diplomatic skills, our allies will turn their backs on America.
The horror of this possibility unravels my sense of any security or faith in the America that I love. How can the land of greatest opportunity and liberty blithely hand over our liberties to this media clown and look their children in the eyes and say
“I’m voting for your future”.

Gun Control, Political Agenda, Human and Disability Rights…….
To all of my FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram followers and friends:
Hereby unfriend, untweet, unpin and unchat me……if you want to sway
my opinions and convictions on:
A) Massive gun control for assault and automatic
weapons – I believe that they do kill people. Period.
Also, If you spend more time defending your
weaponry than you do defending and assisting the
daily rights and options for disabled, homeless and
poor – or fighting bigotry
………….Please unfriend me.
B) Women’s rights and Planned Parenthood: I believe
that women have the right to own their reproduction.
Period. I believe that the organizations that uphold
these hard earned rights and medical services should
be supported and upheld.
C) That political agendas should be unmasked
(on all sides) and only work for the benefit of all people – not the wealthy –
but for the average working American. I also believe that there
will never be a true democracy without socialized medicine and
uniform drug and pharmaceutical regulations.
If it is your opinion that the thought of the day is more important than a friendship or a human’s well being – if you think that your “post” will sway ethical and moral convictions that have taken 60 years to develop………..absolutely, unfriend me. I’ll survive…. guaranteed.
Social Relevance: What do you think? I don’t care.
In this world of blogging and Facebook and Twitter and and and…..
What are your pithy facts and opinions worth?
Who reads you? Who (outside of your adoring circle of FB fans) spends more than two seconds on “liking” your post – or questioning the quality of your life – vs. the occasional RIP or blathering on over the latest “cute” kitty – dog – horse – frog pic?
(Guilty – I confess)
And what of the latest round of political b.s.?? EVERYbody has an opinion. And… I don’t care.
What does it all amount to? Beyond the hype, the propaganda, the game show hosts (or reality series) and Fox Media flapping does one stop and question what their candidate or political party (that you would swim the shark infested waters with) will actually do for you?
Will they call you next week for tea? Will they contact the mortgage company when your husband has a heart attack and you can’t pay your bills – or you’ve lost your business – or you’ve lost your job?? Try to reach out to them then, your buds. JUST TRY.
As for me…I simply want my candidates to stand up for ME – the little person. To do what is right for me and my family. To remember what the Great Depression was – and that a vast majority of Americans are standing smack center of a new, but not improved,
depression 85 years later.
Remembering what this country was founded on:
Life, (Education), liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Vote on that. Choose to defend that.
All Women in the cross hairs….What are you willing to give up?
Senator Elizabeth Warren on Planned Parenthood
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is a touchstone to women’s rights and middle/low income America. I stand with Planned Parenthood and every service that they provide – to every woman.
The rights that we fought for in the 70’s and 80’s are founded on sacrifice and tears. Why doesn’t the GOP propose legislation – or Angel funding – or adoption that will sponsor a mother through pregnancy and the child through college, that is if they are truly concerned with the fetus and the eventual child?
This will never happen – as it is not their concern or agenda.
I think we need to ask each and every GOP Legislator what exactly IS their agenda. I, for one, will never surrender my rights, my children’s rights or my great great grandchildren’s rights as women.
