WE SHOULD LEARN FROM HISTORY, NOT BURY AND FORGET IT! Man's inhumanity to man knows no boundaries---then we lie about it.

The comparisons coming up are obvious. Great fear exists among U.S. CITIZENS, what will happen when the so many well thought out protective programs and safe-guards for children, women, and men are removed?

What will happen to American Indians and their land? What will happen to minorities, veterans, the homeless and less fortunate? What will happen to American children? What will happen to seniors? What will happen to the employed and underemployed? What will happen to the environment? What will happen to programs such as Medicare and Social Security---programs paid for by workers. In the case of Social Security, politicians stole trillions from this self funded program to run the government and give tax breaks to the very rich---and then lied about it. How can politicians get away with such fraud? The same politicians that get elected and before our very eyes mysteriously become multi-millionaires! Why would such programs for the people be attacked? HOW MUCH GROUND AND PROTECTION WILL BE LOST FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN? When will such deceit ever end?

The number of homeless, unemployed, and underemployed is strikingly awful---yet our leaders are going to remove people programs, make gigantic tax cuts to the very rich, making the wealthy richer and the working poor even poorer.

Fear and anxiety is warranted and in such a climate what further atrocities will occur to the poor and helpless? The working class man and woman deserves better...

We seem to be ruled by a political system vastly corrupt, the very rich sponsoring and paying for politicians and passing laws giving them more and more advantage and control.

And the news media (owned by the very wealthy) will continue to spew misinformation and confusion and cover up what atrocities that are going to happen to us as well?

We are all very worried and with good reason................................

THE VERY RICH ALWAYS WIN AND APPEAR TO NEVER LOSE!

Google+ seems to be a pale comparison to Google+ CLASSIC!

Can't find number of overall views! Can't find if a person who clicks on to a post and gives a +, if they are being followed, etc.

I just don't get it. Why would Google do this?

As me Daddy always said: "It's hard to beat another fellow at his own racket."

Picture of my Dad in the oil fields. Taken with a Kodak box camera in the 1950's. I'm so lucky to have this one picture. How he worked and worked and worked. Overtime got him the extra money needed to pay ALL the bills. Every day for over 40 years he was covered with crude oil, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. He would wash his face, hands, arms and torso with a mechanics red rag, taking gasoline from a 50 gallon drum and rubbing the oil off. When he came home, he smelled of oil and gasoline. I would say, "FATHER YOU STINK!" And me DADDY would say, "SON! THAT'S THE SMELL OF MONEY!"

Nostalgia bringing me to my knees today.

Going through with pipelines---guaranteed to leak---as it appears thousands upon thousands of major leaks have already occurred across the United States each year.

The present administration is chomping at the bit to eliminate most rules and regulations, attack Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Federal Lands will be opened to the rich, bought and sold---they will eliminate EPA standards and gut the agency, allow all pipelines to cross the country. They will further attack and take over Indian land, break treaties, and have open access to virtually anything they want... JUST WATCH, WAIT, AND SEE. It is happening right now as we breathe the air we presently are allowed to breathe. And the average American will suffer very deeply. Already mortage interest rates on FHA loans have been raised---and so it will go.

READ A BOOK!

WELCOME TO MY GOOGLE PAGE: CHARLIE STEEL, AUTHOR

One of my favorite books is entitled DESERT HEAT, DESERT COLD AND OTHER TALES OF THE WEST.  It contains 17 iconic drawings and stories. 

I wrote the stories to entertain the reader, youth, woman, or man.  Each story presents the reader with an opportunity to become a hero, the characters doing their best to overcome insurmountable obstacles.  All this from the comfort of your own personal reading space---come, join the adventure! 

Reading allows one to escape into worlds that you would NEVER envision by yourself.  Better than any movie, it is your own mind that combines with the narrative to create your very own scenes with you directly in the middle of it all.

A VERY GREAT BOOK: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
 
Even if I had not lived a life of adventure, reading this book would indeed have enthralled me with excitement.  This story reveals a tale of love and tragedy followed by the greatest revenge a man ever had, in real life or fiction!
 
Alexandre Dumas outdid himself in penning this marvelous story.  If you have not read it word for word you are doing yourself a great injustice in this very short life.  Beg, borrow, or purchase, this book, or find it in the town library and give it a read.  You will NOT regret it.
 
Then, when you have finished it, find the movie with Jim Caviezel, Guy Pearce, Dagmara Dominczyk, Richard Harris and others.  This too will entertain, but you will find it a pale comparison to the book.
 
Do not commit an injustice by living out your life without reading this fine tale.  Sit down and read the book!  So says Author, Charlie Steel:  https://www.amazon.com/Charlie-Steel/e/B00H6US1P8

THE CONTRIBUTION OF TRAINS TO THE POOR BEFORE AND AFTER THE GREAT DEPRESSION!

Monty,
For what it is worth, trains meant a great deal to us, in a small town.  When I was a  kid, people traveled long distances by train more than they did by car.  Why?  The roads were TERRIBLE and the train was faster.  People rode the train 90 miles to the first big city for shopping and would return that night or the next day, with groceries, personal items, and clothes.

My father tells me JAMES OLIVER CURWOOD came to town on a train  and he got a chance to talk to him.  CURWOOD was a famous author---back in the day and they made 17 some movies from his books and stories.  I wrote about that in a public blog, on my Google+.

My father also told stories of his mother waking him in the middle of the night, way back in the late 1920's & early 1930's, saying, "Son we're out of fuel and the house is cold, can you go get some coal?"

Back then, people heated their stoves and cooked with wood and coal.  Dad said it was against the law to collect the coal falling off the trains along the railroad track.  So in the winter, with a gunny sack, my father, alone or with a few brothers, (there were 13 kids) would take gunny sacks and collect the coal along the tracks.  Walking along in the dark, so they wouldn't get caught.

NOW, wanted or not---that is a true story of another type of contribution trains made to the poor before and during the GREAT DEPRESSION!

Thanks, Charlie Steel, Author...
