I just want to give everyone who comes to my Toy Box a huge thank you.   I started my blog 8 years ago.  I don’t think I had a plan for it then.    But it grew and matured and so did I.  Today I looked at my 2017 stats.

The truth is coming out.

This was an informative article that pointed out several points.  It was common knowledge that Russia was hacking into the US systems, and that they were helping tRump’s team.   The other information was it was openly known about tRump’s mobster connections.   There was mention of the fact that even someone in the tRump campaign contacted the FBI because they were worried about the candidate was being blackmailed.   Also it shows how the republicans and chairman Grassley wanted to keep the testimony secret so they could lie about the dossier and slander the author.    Hugs

tRumpsky lied again, what a shock. The man is so stupid he seems to think we can not check the facts. Hugs

An article dealing with the making of american hate group Nazis. Please read and give me your thoughts. Thanks. Hugs

Below is a link to an article of great importance to our time , our country , the way some conduct is allowed.   I took about 1 & 1/2 hours to read it and try to digest what it was saying.  it was scary to me in that it seemed the saddest most desperate for something kids had banded together and created a way they could rage and vent, even pretend they were the important people they wanted so desperately to be.  They say that white supremacist and nationalist of any country are basically afraid people like them are not worth much anymore and that they have little value.   They got this lack of esteem not in that they were the targets of some kind of oppression like some groups had suffered.   IN fact they targeted for abuse groups that had been oppressed in an attempt to make their own lives feel worth more.   They got feeling left behind because the world is changing and they don’t fit neatly into the new gears, slots, and places.    They have the ability for the changing world that is clear but not the internal emotional connection to the group as a whole.  Simply put the slogan chanted in Charlottesville “We will not be replaced” shows me this fear in bold letters of every word.  I do not have the training to really evaluate them and the article was a hard read for me.  I hope other that view my blog will read it, all or bits, and give me your thoughts.   Sadly this kind of hate and speech is something that is now part of the body of our country and it must be addressed.   Thank you.   Scottie.   Hugs 

The Making of an American Nazi

How did Andrew Anglin go from being an antiracist vegan to the alt-right’s most vicious troll and propagandist—and how might he be stopped?

How Creationism Taught Me Real Science 62 Plate Tectonics – YouTube

Filed under: Earth News, Facts, History, News, Reason — Scottie @ 11:17

I am posting this for people who want to learn and may not have known the information.   I learned about most of this stuff in school.  I am shocked to find a great number of people who did not know about plate tectonics or simply were never exposed to it.  Religion has done a hatchet job on kids educations and this is a good example where religion lies to advance their myth, at the expense of the facts and of the truth.    Hugs

I keep saying to people that Bernie Sanders was an independent, not a democrat.   He was using the DNC, the democratic party to do what he couldn’t do as an independant without becoming a democrat.   I ask how anyone could reasonably expect the party to work against itself?    You have a non-democrat running for the nomination of the democratic party.   OF course they would side with their own party member.  I liked Bernie’s message but I disliked the campaign he ran.   He should have joined the party he wanted to help him.   Then I and others would have supported him.  Instead he wanted his cake and everyone else’s also.   Hugs

I am grateful to Dr. Evelyn Hooker for the study she did and got the leaders of her craft to see that gay people are simply people.    I wish I had know of this study growing up.  Would have made a huge difference I think.  Hugs
