Some articles they allow the public to see...temporarily. Others they completely hide. How does it feel, Mr. and Mrs. America, to know the NewsBreak app will not allow you to see what's really going on in your world? Not so good, eh.
Now imagine how I feel when NewsBreak hides some of my articles from the public and my subscribers. Suddenly and inexplicably, they claim articles "failed" to upload using the same RSS feed that was working perfectly yesterday. But that doesn't explain a 10k site hit article that was visible on NewsBreak yesterday and hidden today!
There's a word for that: censorship. And censorship is bullshit! It's unAmerican but then I just found out that NewsBreak isn't an American company.
Once upon a time, well actually it was last night, Michael said something to the effect, "You've worked hard enough this week. Let's go to the American Legion for supper. I hear they're serving walleye."
They could've been serving shit-on-a-shingle and I'd be there with bells on! Any meal I don't have to cook is my favorite meal. (Can I get an "Amen," Ladies!?)
Now, when you enter an American Legion, you kinda assume that everone there is...duh! Pro-military, Pro-veterans, Pro-America. There are American flags e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e and not one damn mask in sight.
It's one of the places Michael can roll into proudly wearing his new T-shirt and no one's going to be offended. It says, "ALL LIVES MATTER...Except terrorists, rapists, child molesters, cop killers & anyone who hates America. Fuck those guys." (He wore it the county fair the other week and you should've seen the constipated expression on the guy who was wearing a "BLM" t-shirt. Priceless!!! If he'd tried anything he would've had the shock of his life: the guy in the wheelchair knows taekwondo! LOL)
Anyways, the American Legion was the last place I expected to meet a Trump hater yet it happened.
To be honest, I've been watching a little too much Jeff Dunham recently so when the guy said, "I hate Trump" my first thought was Walter's famous line, "300 million sperm. That's the one that got through."
That ain't right! Don't laugh at that!
Despite disagreeing passionately about politics, our conversation with "Tom" was cordial and I got the opportunity to study a man who obviously loved America...and hated Trump. A man who supported our veterans (or at least really liked walleye)...and hated Trump. A man who was interested in American history...and hated Trump.
He never gave a cogent reason either. Just kept repeating, "I hate the man."
