Citizens Effectively Using Insurance Liability Policies to Keep School Boards In Check

Parents and citizens in multiple states around the country have taken to filing complaints against their local school boards through Surety bonds and other insurance policies in order to see changes in masking, Critical Race Theory (CRT) and other school materials policies.  

Despite mainstream media attempts to label the strategy with propaganda buzz such as “paper terrorism,” “sham legal claims” and “baseless,” parents are winning.

🔹In October, 2021, Steve Socha in Ohio told the Indian Creek school board he intended to file a claim against their bonds unless they lifted their mask mandate for students.  

“Either stand down or I personally assure you I’m going to (take action),” Socha said according to the Herald Star. “The wheels of justice will be brought before you. Many of you could be in violation under the laws and statutes. This ends tonight.” 

At its next meeting in November, the Indian Creek board dropped the mask policy. 

🔹On Jan. 27, 2022 all 10 members of the school board in Scottsdale, Arizona, were served with 10 Notices of Intent each for practicing medicine without a license, child abuse, and inappropriate sexual material in school libraries. Each claim has a liability value of up to $100,000.  

🔹In Alaska, the Anchorage School Board is facing similar actions.

🔹Recently, parents in North Carolina have taken notice of the bond complaint strategy. School boards in some districts have been served with complaints, including Catawba, Dare, Iredell, Johnston and Wake counties.

Of those districts, only Wake County has resisted changing to a mask-optional policy. 

Notices of Intent were filed against Wake County School Board members in January with a main demand that the district remove “all enforcement of policies that require universal masking/masking without parental consent.” 

More parents across the country are planning to file similar measures against their school boards, especially those facing elections.

Iredell’s school board was served at the conclusion of its meeting on Feb. 7 demanding an end to masking, quarantining exclusion rules, and pornographic materials in the district’s schools. On Feb. 14, the board voted to make masks optional on the recommendation of their superintendent.  

In Dare County, the school board was served at its Feb. 8 meeting with 28 Notices of Intent against the district’s Linebacker Errors & Omissions liability policy by the Dare County Citizens for Constitutional Rights (DCCR). At that same meeting, the Dare Board voted six to one to make masks optional effective immediately.  

Facing complaints to be filed by citizens, the Johnston County School board voted 6-1 on Feb. 8 to make masks optional. That happened on Feb. 14.

What are Surety bonds? 

Surety Bonds are financial guarantees that bondholders will uphold terms of contracts specified in the bond agreement. All elected officials are required to be bonded and the idea behind these bonds is to protect the public from malpractice or fraud by the officials covered by the bond.  

Some states have statutory requirements that local boards of education members must have a Surety bond.

Other states allows local boards of education to hold liability insurance, and therefore waive its governmental immunity, to cover damages caused by certain actions of agents or employees of the local board.  

A website called “Bonds for the Win” outlines the Surety process, including state codes and violations that can be used in complaints. 

There are three parties involved in a Surety Bond:

1. the principal–the organization or person purchasing the bond and accepting the obligation to adhere to the terms. If the principal fails to adhere to the terms, the Surety can be held contractually liable. 

2. the company offering the bond, and

3. the obligee–the person or entity covered by the bond. In most cases, the obligee is a local, state or public official, but it can also be companies or their officials, unions and even contractors.  

To file a Surety bond complaint, a Notice of Intent to file a complaint which includes specific violation claims is sent to the bondholder. Typically, the notice gives a short timeframe for a response. 

If the entity served with the notice doesn’t correct the violations within the specified response time, the next step can be filing a “Color of Law” violation notice. The federal Color of Law statute Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 is designed to defend the civil rights of citizens and to keep any authority from using its power to willfully deprive a person of their constitutionally protected rights and privileges. 

Once the claim against the Surety bond is filed, the company that issued the bond investigates. If the claim is found valid, the official the claim is filed against can submit a defense or they can provide a solution to the issues raised that includes financial compensation to the claim filer.  

Filing 10 or more separate complaints against the bondholders can result in bond cancellation and make getting a new bond harder. For some elected officials, being unable to obtain a new bond can mean removal from office.


If we cannot summon the will and the wherewithal to stand up for the children in our lives, we have little hope of standing up for the rest of society.

More States Could Add Marijuana Policy to Their Ballots in 2022

Recreational marijuana is legal in 18 states and Washington, D.C., and medical marijuana is legal in 36 states and D.C.

Some other states where voters could see marijuana on the ballot in 2022 include:

Arkansas: Voters could decide two marijuana initiatives. One would decriminalize marijuana, give limited immunity to cannabis businesses, and create regulations for the cannabis industry.

The other would legalize marijuana use for individuals 21 and older regardless of residency. Both campaigns have until July 8 to collect 89,151 valid signatures.

Idaho: Kind Idaho filed an initiative to establish a state medical marijuana program. Sponsors attempted to qualify an identical initiative for the 2020 Idaho ballot but suspended their signature-gathering campaign in April 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Voters could also decide on an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana. The Idaho Way sponsored the initiative. The campaigns need to submit 64,945 valid signatures by May 1.

Ohio: Sponsors of an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana submitted an additional 29,918 signatures on Jan. 13, after the secretary of state verified their initial petition contained 119,825 valid signatures–13,062 less than required. If enough of the additional signatures are valid, the initiative will go before the state legislature.

If the state legislature does not enact it outright, sponsors will have to collect a second round of 132,887 signatures to place it on the November ballot. In 2015, Ohio voters defeated Issue 3 63.65% to 36.35%.

South Dakota: an initiative to legalize marijuana was cleared for signature gathering. In 2020, 54.18% of voters approved Amendment A, which would have legalized marijuana. The state supreme court later ruled the measure violated the state’s single-subject rule and constituted a revision of the constitution rather than an amendment.

New Approach South Dakota, which also sponsored the 2020 amendment, filed the current initiative.

Family, Residents Mourn Loss of Young Navy Medic Killed in Kabul

Residents of Milan, Ohio and patriots across the country are mourning the loss of one of their own, a young Ohio Navy medic who was killed in the Kabul terrorist attack Thursday.

One of the 13 U.S. service members (and more than 100 Afghans) killed, Max Soviak graduated just four years ago from Edison High School.

Soviak’s body was among the dead after the terrorist group ISIS-K bombed released gunfire at Hamid Karzai International Airport.

Edison Local Schools released a statement Friday on Soviak’s passing.

“It is with deepest sorrow that I am sharing this news,” the statement read. “The Edison Local Schools was informed this morning that Max Soviak, a 2017 graduate of Edison High School, was killed in the suicide bombing at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan yesterday. Max was a good student who was active in sports and other activities throughout his school career. He was well respected and liked by everyone who knew him. Max was full of life in everything he did. Our schools and local community are mourning the loss of Max. He and his family are in all of our thoughts and prayers.”

The statement noted that Soviak’s family has asked that everyone respect their privacy at this difficult time.

Soviak’s sister, Marilyn Soviak, expressed her sorrow for the loss of her brother on Instagram, writing in part, “I’ve never been one for politics and i’m not going to start now. What I will say is that my beautiful, intelligent, beat-to-the-sound of his own drum, annoying, charming baby brother was killed yesterday helping to save lives.”

Eighteen U.S. service members were also wounded in the attacks, marking the deadliest day for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since August 2011.

Health Fraud Lands CEO 15-Yrs in Prison and $51 Million Restitution

The CEO of a chain of medical clinics in Michigan and Ohio was sentenced March 3 to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay $51 million in restitution for his role in a $150 million healthcare fraud scheme, according to the U.S. Justice Department


Mashiyat Rashid was sentenced after pleading guilty in 2018 to money laundering and conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud and wire fraud.

Twenty other defendants, including 12 physicians, have been convicted for their involvement in the scheme. 

Mr. Rashid, who served as CEO of Tri-County Wellness Group from 2008 to 2016, developed and approved a corporate policy to administer unnecessary back injections to patients in exchange for prescriptions of over 6.6 million doses of medically unnecessary opioids, according to the Justice Department. 

Many patients experienced pain from the unnecessary injections, and some developed adverse conditions, including open holes in their backs, according to testimony at Mr. Rashid’s trial.

Local news coverage

Physicians at the clinics denied patients, including those addicted to opioids, medication until they agreed to get the injections, according to court documents. 

According to evidence presented at trial, Mr. Rashid only hired physicians who were willing to administer the unnecessary injections in exchange for a split of the Medicare reimbursements for the procedures.

Tri-County Wellness Group was paid more for facet joint injections than any other medical clinic in the U.S., according to the Justice Department. 

Proceeds of the fraud were used to fund private jets and to buy luxury cars, real estate and tickets to NBA games, prosecutors said.

Mr. Rashid was ordered to forfeit to the U.S. government $11.5 million in proceeds traceable to the healthcare fraud scheme, including commercial and residential real estate and Detroit Pistons season tickets. 

44 Pounds of ‘Cocaine’ Frosted Flakes Seized by U.S. Customs

First it was  $55 million worth of cocaine discovered at a Coca-Cola plant in Signes, France in August 2016.

According to the BBC, authorities have ruled out any involvement by employees at the plant, instead calling the 370 kilos of cocaine included in a shipment of orange juice concentrate from Costa Rica “a very bad surprise.”

Jean-Denis Malgras, the regional president of Coca-Cola, quickly learned the seizure was being called one of the largest to occur on French soil.

The following year U.S. Customs and Border Patrol confiscated seven pounds of live Mediterranean chocolate-band snails in an express international parcel going from Italy to Hartford, Connecticut.

The contents of two taped up shoeboxes were full, except for those determined snails who were already trying to escape, labeled as “shoes and honey.”

invasive snail mail

By 2019, at least 154 pounds of black market bologna was discovered by . CBP officers who stopped a man in a Chevrolet pickup at the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso. Texas.

According to a CBP press release, the department’s Agriculture Specialists inspected the truck with Texas plates on its way back into the United States. One of the officers saw “red rolls” stacked behind the rear seat of the vehicle, and a more thorough investigation revealed that those rolls were actually giant bologna logs.


The CBP seized 14 rolls of Mexican bologna from the man’s truck and waa ultimately destroyed. Pork produced outside our borders cannot be brought into the United States, because of its potential to introduce “foreign animal diseases” into the pork industry.

On February 13, 2021, agents seized 44 pounds, or almost $3 million worth of cocaine, found inside a box of “frosted” corn flakes.

The shipment from Peru to Cincinnati, Ohio, had an estimated street value of $2,822,400. The final delivery was intended to be at a private residence in Hong Kong.

Angel brand Corn Flakes was sniffed out by CBP Narcotic Detector Dog “Bico,” and when officers took a closer look, “they saw that the cereal contained white powder, and the flakes were coated with a grayish substance.”

“The men and women at the Port of Cincinnati are committed to stopping the flow of dangerous drugs,” Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie stated, “and they continue to use their training, intuition, and strategic skills to prevent these kinds of illegitimate shipments from reaching the public.”

The CBP added that, on average, 3,677 pounds of drugs were seized at ports of entry across the United States every single day over the last fiscal year—and that these illegal substances had been hidden in “anything imaginable.”

Joe Biden Was Not Elected President and Media Lacks Dignity

Joe Biden was not elected President.

How stupid do mainstream media and Democrats think America is?

Listen very close to what President Donald Trump is telling us. Over the past four years his tweets have been a key to anything the media does not want us to know.

“The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, “glitches” in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more,” President Trump tweeted Tuesday evening. “Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.”

“Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the Presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election,” asked President Donald Trump, via a tweet earlier.

“It was attacked, perhaps like never before! From large numbers of Poll Watchers that were thrown out of vote counting rooms in many of our States, to millions of ballots that have been altered by Democrats, only for Democrats, to voting after the Election was over, to using Radical Left owned Dominion Voting Systems, turned down by Texas and many others because it was not good or secure,” he continued. “those responsible for the safeguarding of our Constitution cannot allow the Fake results of the 2020 Mail-In Election to stand. The World is watching!”


The same media that told us Trump lost in 2016 (not to mention RussiaGate, Mueller, DossierGate, KavanaughGate, etc.)  want us to believe election fraud is minimal.

Here are some truths over 72 million voting citizens are learning, no thanks to the media.

Smartmatic/Dominion software, used to tabulate votes in the swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin was developed in Venezuela.

Both were banned from the U.S. a decade ago. According to Rudy Giuliani, they were brought back into the United States under the sponsorship of a subcontractor favored by the Deep State.

The major design feature of this system allows the vote counters to calculate how many votes they need to win.

Even before the election, Political watchdog Judicial Watch could predict the Democrats cheating with their release of a comparison of Census Bureau population statistics and state voter registration data to reveal a notable disparity.

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch

The group warned of potential voter fraud and “dirty” voter rolls.

Their study found that 352 U.S. counties in 29 states managed to have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens.

Democrats knew they couldn’t beat Trump honestly. They had to use corrupt software, Deep State operatives, dead voters and manufactured ballots to cheat.

Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, said their lawyers have “a solid, comprehensive strategy that is tailored to the conditions on the ground in each state and according to the laws in each state.”


Pennsylvania illegally changed its election rules before and during the voting process.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered Pennsylvania election officials to segregate a section of the ballots that came in after 8 p.m. on Election Day.

According to The Wall Street Journal, about 10,000 ballots arrived during the three days after Election Day.

We now know Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court and the Secretary of the Commonwealth ignored the General Assembly and the U.S. Constitution to rig the election on behalf of Joe Biden.

In 2016, Pennsylvania rejected about 1% of mail-in ballots; this year it is running so far as 0.03%. This almost 30 times the rate predicted by historical rejection numbers.

Boockvar lacks authority.

Commonwealth Court President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ruled that Pennsylvania Commonwealth Secretary Kathy Boockvar lacked the “statutory authority” to change election law days before the election. Leavitt ordered the county boards of elections not to count any ballots that had been segregated.

“For voters that appeared at the polls, those citizens were required to sign voter registrations, have those signatures checked against voter rolls, vote in a polling place monitored by statutorily-authorized poll observers, and have their votes counted in a transparent and verifiable open and observed manner,” a lawsuit by the Trump Campaign claims.

“By contrast, due to the arbitrary, unauthorized, and standardless actions of the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Kathy Boockvar, nearly 2.65 million votes were cast through a ‘mail-in’ process that lacked all of the hallmarks of transparency and verifiability that were present for in-person voters.”

“This two-track election system not only violates Plaintiffs’ rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution but also violates the structure of the Constitution that elections in the States must be carried out as directed by their respective legislatures,” the lawsuit claims.

There is so much proof that it makes it difficult to convince any fair minded person there wasn’t election fraud. This includes videos showing Democrat election officials evicting Republican election observers from vote-counting locations and erecting physical barriers to prevent them from watching.

CNN caught in the act of deceiving. Gold box is actual. CNN’s own bottom bar took the exact number of new votes the GOP candidate has gained and added it to the Democrat contender.

The last time a Democrat was elected as president while his party sustained a double-digit loss in the House was in 1960. Even then, it took  vote and election fraud in Illinois and Texas to make that happen.

In 2020, President Trump set a record by attracting the highest percentage of the non-white vote of any Republican presidential candidate in the last 60 years.

Mainstream media expects us to believe that, despite the worst showing among minorities of any Democratic nominee since John F. Kennedy, Joe Biden surpassed Barack Obama’s record-breaking turnout by 10 million votes.

“From 1980 through 2016, 19 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties voted for the eventual president in every election,” noticed the Wall Street Journal. “Only one … backed President-elect Joe Biden last week.”

How does a candidate who campaigned from his basement–and when he did come out to play, could only attract a dozen or so hoolahoopers every eight feet apart– lost 95 percent of these counties yet won the election?


President Trump slammed Biden in Ohio, winning the state by 8.2 percent, but just before the election, even the New York Times knew that Biden needed Ohio if he had any chance to win:

Four years ago, Mr. Trump built a particularly balanced coalition among Ohio’s white voters, winning across education levels. But his support in the state has waned over the past four years, particularly in the suburbs … Columbus’s growth, and the expansion of suburbs and exurbs into what used to be rural and blue-collar areas, might have once spelled an opportunity for Republicans. But under Mr. Trump the Republican Party has lost its footing among specifically these kinds of voters — and the growth in Franklin County plays into Mr. Biden’s hands.

Trump won Ohio with the majority of these counties because absentee ballots were managed transparently according to long-standing and coherent guidelines in place long before the election.


The only bellwether county out of the 19 that Biden won is located in Washington state, which long ago went to all mail-in ballots and one-party rule.


The recount in Georgia has found that more than 2,600 votes in one conservative county were never tabulated.


Wayne County (Detroit) Canvassing Board has refused to certify their election because the number of ballots cast did not match the number of people who signed in to vote. (Read more here).

Responsible for corruption.

The total number of ballots cast in Wayne County was about 863,000. 
Without Wayne County, Biden’s lead in Michigan would flip to a 177,000 Trump lead. The State of Michigan will now be tasked with attempting certification.


So far, over 15,000 people who voted in Nevada also voted in other states.

There is no way most Americans are stupid enough to believe Biden is the legitimate winner of the 2020 election.

Americans blasted the Democrats in congressional, state, and local elections.

Media wants us to believe that even though Biden way underperformed among minority voters, that he received 10 million more votes than Barack Obama.

Virtually all of the historically reliable election bellwethers were wrong.

Besides the evidence not even being revealed yet, we know that swing states were conducted dishonestly and that the Venezuelan software used to tabulate the votes wasn’t secure.

Trump Legal Team Has Massive Voter Fraud Evidence to “Undo the Entire Election”

Trump Team attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, both renown federal prosecutors, have provided startling previews of some of the evidence gathered from the investigation into the 2020 election fraud.

From Giuliani, we know sworn affidavits are in hand and early lawsuits have been filed to garner precedent in courts. He’s admitted some of their findings will be revealed in litigation.

Powell’s words have not been subtle. Last week during a televised Lou Dobbs appearance on Fox Business, she stated she is going to “release the Kraken” and blow the fraud in the election wide open.

She said they have “staggering” statistical evidence and testimony to show Dominion voting machines altered ballots, and this deception stems back to Venezuela, Cuba, and China.

On a Sunday morning interview with Fox Business News’ Maria Bartiromo, Powell continued her determination.

“We’re fixin’ to overturn the results of the election in multiple states, and President Trump won by not just hundreds of thousands of votes but by millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose,” she revealed.

“We have sworn witness testimony of why the software was designed. It was designed to rig elections. He was fully briefed on it. He saw it happen in other countries. It was exported internationally for profit by the people that are behind Smartmatic and Dominion.”

“They did this on purpose,” Powell continued. “It was calculated and they’ve done it before. We have evidence from 2016 in California. We have so much evidence I feel like it’s coming in through a fire hose.”

Powell was particularly hard on CIA Director Gina Haspel, indicating the agency’s intelligence ignored multiple calls to investigate voter integrity surrounding the electronic voting systems. Powell said Haspel should be immediately fired for her incompetence.


Powell mentioned to Dobbs and Bartiromo that their legal team are collecting evidence about high level political family members who collected kickbacks from people who accepted Dominion software that was used in 30 states to tabulate American votes.

“Their own manual, if you sat down and read it, would explain, how and why, no honest person would use their system,” Powell said.

Dominion and other voting systems have been used by Deep State controlled operatives to circumvent the security of U.S. elections. “They can stick a thumb drive in the machine or upload software to it, even from the internet. They can do it from Germany or Venezuela, even. They can remote access anything, they can watch votes in real-time, they can shift votes in real-time.”

Powell said they have “identified mathematically the exact algorithm they’ve used and planned to use from the beginning, in this case, to modify the vote to make sure Biden won.”

Powell reminded Americans that Joe Biden, who in his “demented state,” was truthful when he stated before television cameras that he had the “largest voter fraud organization ever.”

“Well, it’s massive voter fraud and it’s going to undo the entire election,” Powell charged.

“They can do anything they want with the votes,” she revealed. “They can have the machines not read the signature. They can have the machines not read the down-ballot. They can make the machine read and catalog only the Biden votes. It’s like drag and drop whatever you want, wherever you want—upload votes.”

“In fact, we’ve got math in Michigan and Pennsylvania, I think it is, where all of a sudden hundreds of thousands of votes at 67% ratio for Biden and 37% for Trump were uploaded multiple times into the system.”

According to both MSNBC, and reported by Forbes, in 2012 the Republican National Committee sent a letter to election officials in six states, “raising concerns that machines had wrongly counted votes for Romney as ones for Obama, and asking them to address the problem.”

On November 6, 2012 Forbes released a video of a voting machine in New York actually changing votes. They posted this account from a software developer who noticed the fraud:

There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next, I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said “It’s nothing to worry about, everything will be OK.” and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I’m not a video guy, but if it’s possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.

Also on November 6, 2012 The Christian Science Monitor posted an article “US judge allows Ohio voting software, alleged to be vulnerable to fraud.”

The concerns centered on voting software used in almost a third of Ohio’s counties. Their was serious concern of a digital ‘back door’ being used to exploit and alter vote totals.

“…new election software installed recently in county computers to format vote totals and transmit them to the Secretary of State’s Office” was testified by an expert witness to have this digital “back door.”

“The suit alleged that the Secretary of State’s Office used a legal loophole to install software on electronic voting systems in county vote-tabulation machines without having it checked by the Ohio Board of Voting Machine Examiners, the state’s technical board that is charged with reviewing.”

These Wacky American Town Names Will Make You Laugh

Our faith in America’s sense of humor was restored during the pandemic summer of 2020.

We escaped from the onslaught of negative news and propaganda by just getting away. Our travels  through 14 states and Washington D.C. for over a month thoroughly offered a lighter side of truth and experiences.

Besides counting the number of Trump (159) and Biden (0) flags and banners along the way, we got a kick from some of the names and places we saw. Uranus, Missouri,  Santa Claus, Indiana and Hot Coffee, Mississippi were three favorites that come to mind.

To pass some of the highway mile time away, we researched and gathered humorous and fun town names from all 50 states. Here’s are list:


Screamer, an unincorporated community in southeastern Alabama, may have come from 19th century Native Americans who screamed and  heckled white train travelers as they passed by what was then a reservation. Smut Eye, Alabama is doozie too.


Unalaska has over 4,500 residents, making it the largest city in the Aleutian Islands. Originally, Unangan residents named it Agunalaksh, a word that means “near the peninsula.” Eek, Alaska is noteworthy.


Why a call a town?” Yes, that’s right “Why” is a small community near the U.S.-Mexico border namhed after the Y-shaped intersection of two nearby highways. But because of an Arizona law requiring place names have at least three letters, “Y” became the much more pragmatic “Why.”


Smackover, a town of 1800 people in southern Arkansas, was once a major oil producer. Settled by French trappers in the early 19th century,  “Smackover” may have derived from the French name for a local creek, Chemin Couvert, which means “covered way”—and “sumac couvert” means a covering of sumac trees, a local plant. Goobertown is another fun one


Rough and Ready, California, is named after an old mining company with that same label. It was the first to secede from the Union and become its own “republic” in 1850 as a protest against mining taxes, prohibition mandates, and laws that weren’t enforced. They rejoined the United States three months later.


Colorado has No Name. When government official first marked a newly constructed exit off I-70 with a sign reading “No Name” as a placeholder, it stuck.


Hazardville, Connecticut, was an 1800s industrial village that made gunpowder. The town was named after Colonel Augustus George Hazard, who purchased and expanded the gunpowder company in 1837.


Corner Ketch is an unincorporated community in New Castle County, Delaware. A rough-and-tumble local bar was known for warning strangers that if they didn’t get you in there, “They’ll ketch ye at the corner.”


Two Egg, Florida, got its name during the Great Depression. When bartering transactions occurred with two eggs traded, almost like currency, for goods.


Climax, Georgia sits at the highest point on the railroad between Savannah and the Chattahoochee River.


Volcano, Hawaii sits near the Hilo Volcano and several volcanic hot spots.


Slickpoo, near Culdesac, Idaho, was once a bustling village and site of a Catholic mission. Landowner Josiah Slickpoo donated acreage to the missionaries. Dickshooter, Idaho made us laugh too.


Sandwich got its name from Sandwich, New Hampshire.


Santa Claus, Indiana celebrates the spirit of Christmas every day, but especially at the Post Office in December. Gnaw Bone is an interesting name too.


What cheer Iowa has in What Cheer, Iowa. It was derived from an old English greeting.


Gas, Kansas is the butt of many jokes. “You just passed Gas.” “Gas Kan.” “Get Gas!” Natural gas was discovered in the area in 1898.


Bugtussle is a tiny spot on the Kentucky-Tennessee border is an homage to doodlebugs. Personally, I think Kentucky has some of the best town names with Knob Lick, Bald Knob, Chicken Bristle, Fearsville, Hippo, Krypton, Mud Lick, Monkeys Eyebrow, Pig, and Raccoon.

Bald Knob (guess they licked it too much?), Chicken Bristle, Fearsville, Hippo, Krypton (say hi to Superman’s parents for us!), Mud Lick, Monkeys Eyebrow, Pig, and Raccoon.


Uneedus is the settlement site of the Lake Superior Piling Company. Their corporate slogan was “You need us.”  Residents founded another farm community nearby and called it Weneedu.


Burnt Porcupine is an island off the coast of Maine.  Located near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Burnt Porcupine has nearby sister islands with equally intriguing names: Bald Porcupine, Long Porcupine, and Sheep Porcupine.


Boring, Maryland. Enough said.


Belchertown wasn’t named for the aftermath of a particularly gassy meal. It’s named after Jonathan Belcher, a colonial governor of Massachusetts.


Hell is 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. In the 1830s, the town settler, George Reeves, traded homemade whiskey to local farmers for grain. The farmer’s wives said “He’s gone to hell again.”


Nimrod, Minnesota is full of nimrods. In the book of Genesis, Nimrod is described as “a mighty hunter before the Lord” and is credited with overseeing the construction of the Tower of Babel.


Hot Coffee is marked as the midpoint between Natchez, Mississippi, and Mobile, Alabama. A late 1800s inn was erected and capitalized on the spring water, molasses and New Orleans beans used to make hot coffee for weary travelers.

Trump: ‘This May Be The Last Time You See Me For a While’

The The Presidential Prayer Team has asked Americans to pray for President Donald Trump after his speech in Ohio included this message:

“So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing.”

The national ministry, dedicated to a focused mission of encouraging, inspiring and praying for our president and national and military leaders, specifically called on prayers:

For President Trump and his personal safety and the safety of his family.

That in these hours of his concerns, President Trump would turn more urgently to the Lord for His guidance and direction.

For the Secret Service men and women charged with the protection of President Trump.

President Trump told employees of the Whirlpool Corporation Manufacturing Plant in Clyde, Ohio, that he is signing an executive order that will require U.S. government agencies to purchase essential drugs only from American sources.

The Trump Administration has been taking on issues his predecessors and other politicians considered as sacred cows, untouchable because of their big money influence in Washington and state capitals.

Corrupt China trade deals, coveted by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Gloria Feinstein, along with Big Pharma profiteers have been recent targets in Trump’s efforts to obtain better and safer deals for America.

“Every time you see a negative Big Pharma commercial against me remember, it means your drug prices are coming way down!” President Trump tweeted on August 5, 2020 (It has received over 185,000 likes).

He spoke of the “invisible enemy,” the coronavirus, of rolling back regulations, the new U.S.-Canada-Mexico trade agreement, his new orders on lowering the prices of pharmaceuticals, and bringing the supply chain back to America.

“You have people called ‘middlemen.’ … They are so wealthy. They make more money than the drug companies…. the rebate that I’m doing cuts out the middlemen, and it reduces costs, and the money goes back to the people purchasing the drugs.”

“So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while.  A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing.” 

“But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other president is going to do what I do.  No other president would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.”

“Here’s my fourth promise to American workers. Beyond our medical supply chains, over the next four years, we will onshore millions of new manufacturing jobs across many other critical sectors that are vital to our national security and prosperity—from electronics to machine tools, to shipping, aerospace, autos, and, of course, to iron and steel.”

“As long as I am President of the United States, I will fight for you with every ounce of energy and strength that I have. I will be your voice. I will defend your jobs. I will stand up to the foreign trade cheaters and violators that hate our country. I will never let you down. I will have your back, 100 percent.”
