My November 2018 Post Digest for DaTechGuy Blog

Happy 10th Anniversary to DaTechGuy Blog!

Three More Days
[A]s I was reading, it occurred to me that even if the Democrats get everything they want on Tuesday, they won’t be satisfied. Why not? Because Donald Trump will still be there as president of the United States, with all the authority inherent to the office, and with none of the fear of George W. Bush.
Not Your Marker's Mark
Leaving aside the biblical prophecy about the Mark of the Beast, how alarming is this? One wonders what will be the outcome of a malfunctioning chip. How will a person’s body — and mind — react to that?
Trump Refuses to Yield
Admittedly, having a plain-spoken, abrasive president was jarring to me at first. Then I began to think back on the last two presidents, both pathetic blowers of backside smoke from the two “opposing” parties lulling many of us to sleep with their sweet dulcet tones.
Florida Woman
And why would Andrea Mitchell “accidentally” mislabel Brenda Snipes as a Republican? Because Snipes has a long reputation in her office: a history of controversy.
Troll-Feeding and You
[T]rolls feed you. Look for inconsistencies in troll comments and exploit them. Trolls are stupid and, therefore, will always provide you with your own rhetorical ammunition.
Moral Preening App
Leave it to a Democrat politician to creep us all out.
A Tad Rant-ish About Affirmative Action
My American parents – my mother and “step” father – have always been against AA because they could see the unspoken implications of it: that blacks needed it because we are allegedly inferior to other groups.
Make Them Push You Off the Battlefield -- Linked by InstapunditAce of Spades HQ, and many others.
[T]he fact that Twitter sees fit to take out the high rolling personalities — like my friend, Thomas Wictor, who was suspended in September, IIRC — shows that the Left is afraid.  
Sea Change: CNN Fires Marc Lamont Hill
[W]hen I read that he had called for the destruction of Israel, I wasn’t surprised in the least.

The Left Worships Your Mamma


Recently, Former President Obama said that the Right has "mommy issues" because many of us don't believe in the doctrine of Climate Change. Resisting the urge to talk about the former president's mamma, I'd have to say that inserting "mommy issues" into that conversation (Mother Gaia?) was bizarre. And it reminded me of something I've seen the Left do quite a bit lately: bring up your parents.

One of the Left’s shaming tools used against conservatives -- especially those who are not white -- is appealing to us in the name of our dead ancestors or, rather, their vain imaginings of who our ancestors were and what they might think of what we, the living, think and do. Example:


This appeal is based on an unexamined delusion: that all non-whites give a rip about pleasing our ancestors.

I, for one, have at least two ancestors who probably had more to worry about upon reaching the afterlife than whether I or any of their other progeny were shaming them or not. But that’s a side issue.

The main one is this: Christians and Jews are strictly forbidden to practice this or any other form of idolatry. This would include appeasing them or ordering our lives to what we think they might want. Simply put, our goal in life is to please God and Him alone.

Also, I think that trying to atone for the actions of one’s dead ancestors – something the Left seems so on about, what with all the obsession with about “white privilege” and the various campaigns to refute and repudiate “whiteness” – is a twisted Leftist form of this.

They hate their ancestors, worship mine – or so they think -- and then try to shame me when my political beliefs don’t match up with what they conjure about the gods they venerate.

They're always trying to put something in that God-shaped hole of theirs -- anything except for the actual God.

Rhythm, Flow, and Coincidence

As I mentioned here, I used to be a huge NFL fan but stopped paying attention many years ago, beginning long before the kneeling controversy. However, I couldn’t help but notice this, especially since it appeared on Drudge.
Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was lost for the season on Sunday when he broke his tibia and fibula on a scary, freak tackle by J.J. Watt and Kareem Copeland. Smith, who was immediately in devastating pain, was quickly carted off the field and was reportedly headed to surgery just minutes after his team’s comeback bid fell short.

Anytime a quarterback breaks his leg on the field, NFL fans of a certain age think of former ‘Skins quarterback Joe Theismann, who suffered a gruesome broken leg during a Monday Night Football game in 1985. (…) 
Joe Theismann broke his right tibia and fibula on Nov. 18, 1985 in a game in Washington that ended 23-21. The only three-time Defensive Player of the Year Lawrence Taylor was involved in the injury, which occurred around the 40-yard line
Alex Smith broke his right tibia and fibula on Nov. 18, 2018 in a game in Washington that ended 23-21. The only other three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt was involved in the injury, which occurred around the 40-yard line.
People who read this blog will not be surprised that I’m fascinated by these types of “coincidences,” since my own being is an eerie parallel – and, in many ways, polar opposite – to that of one Barack H. Obama.

There are too many other "coincidences" to name here, the most famous being the parallels between the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy.

My own belief about this is that the world we live in is a fallen version of the orderly one that God created and there are still patterns in it. God can and does enter in to these patterns if we ask and even if we don’t.

But even if one does not believe in an omniscient, omnipotent deity, these types of rhyming and flowing events and on-going stories serve to make ridiculous the idea of a random universe.

I think that, sometimes, God just sits back, let’s them happen and lets observers make of them what we will; draw our own conclusions.

I conclude that stuff doesn't just happen.

About Sarah Jeong's Hatred

So, I'm testing the new-to-me method of blogging. Twitter blogging.
There are 12 tweets in the string. I think regular readers of this blog will find my take interesting.

If clicking a Twitter link is against your religion, go here.

Must diversify the signal!

Why I'm Planning to Drive Across the Country and Back

For obvious reasons, this will be part of a series of posts.

As many know from following me on Facebook and Twitter, I’m planning a two-month road trip across the United States and back and I’d like to give a little background as to why I’m doing it.

As I’ve indicated in a couple of other posts, back in February, I found out that an old boyfriend had died. Through contacting his employer – a learning center that helps people get their GEDs – I discovered that the employer had built a memorial garden for him. Since I found out about this, I have longed to see that memorial and I asked God to let that happen before my own exit from Earth.

Not long after I made that request, I received two unrelated invitations to visit Kentucky and Tennessee, respectively in September and October. Both inviters will help me get there and accommodations are already assured. Additionally, I have a friend who would provide me with free air travel if I wanted it.

But I got to thinking that it sure would be nice if I could drive there and see my family, friends and some longtime fans of this blog along the way.

So, I tested the idea on Facebook and got an avalanche of requests to visit from every state in the lower 48! Even one of my friends who lives in South Korea is joking with me about visiting.

Of course, I don’t have the money for this and my car is too old to stand up to the rigors of such a trip, but what if I could do it through a campaign and through day-labor during the trip?

That’s what I going to attempt. And I want to document every part of the trip online.

So, that’s the plan.

Right now, the departure date is August 15 or thereabouts and the main thing I need at the beginning point is to reserve a rental vehicle. I check at Enterprise and two months for an intermediate-sized SUV will be about $2200, but I think I’d like to reserve one for one month at a time.

I have a list of roughly 20 people who have requested a visit – if only for me to swing by in their town and enjoy a cup of coffee – but I will be adding more.

A 57-year-old black lady, two months on the road alone in “terrible, horrible, racist” America; that is how many naysayers will think of such a trip. But I know better and want to see my country for myself, up close and personal.

I will start a GoFundMe campaign, but I’d like to reserve the vehicle now and take care of a few things in the two weeks before I leave, so if you want to hit the tip-jar, please do. When I get the vehicle reserved, I will post a photo of the receipt.

Looking forward to seeing every one of you.

Gift For My New Followers




I have many new followers on Twitter who don’t know that I’ve been blathering online about conservative politics, Christianity, and other stuff for quite some time now. So, I thought I’d give them a taste of some of my work.

Some of the links below are from my old Typepad blog which is still active. I’ve been thinking about combining it with this one.

Going back to 2003 – the year I started blogging – is more than a notion; I cringe at some of my old posts. But, writing is like weight-lifting: painful at first, but you become stronger and sleeker if you don’t give up.

These aren’t necessarily the ones that received the most traffic.

Disclaimer: I like to rant and am sometimes snarky.
Disclaimer 2: Some of you may not like what I wrote about Donald Trump prior to the 2016 election. I did vote for him and now I’m glad I did, but back then? Not so much.

When I’m wrong, I don’t hide my errors.

Enjoy … I hope.

Baldilocks Saddles Up


I'm planning to begin a road trip in a little over a month. Multiple destinations, fully documented.

Here's an audio intro to the idea.

I do plan on taking donations for the trip and I will post before and during the trip via multiple platforms. I'm also thinking about day laboring. Can Americans still do that?
