Watch Out for Email Scams
Recently, we’ve heard from many of you about email scams. The criminals behind these scams are sending emails that look like they were sent by Harbor Freight or another company using realistic logos and other features designed to trick you so they can steal your information or your money. Typically, their emails ask you to complete a survey or fill out a form, and in return, they promise to send you something for free. These emails are NOT from Harbor Freight, and the criminals who send them did NOT get your email address from us.

We want you to know about these scams so you can protect yourself and your personal information. Here are a few tips to help you avoid email scams:

  • Be suspicious of any email that asks for any of your personal information, any credit card number, or any password or account information
  • Look for spelling or grammar errors – email scams are often poorly written
  • Review the actual email address from the sender – scam emails often come from unusual addresses.

While Harbor Freight does occasionally send out surveys to help us serve you better, we will NEVER ask you for your credit card number or address in exchange for completing a survey.

Please be careful with your financial and personal data, and if you receive a scam email that looks like it came from Harbor Freight, please forward it to:

Thank you,

The Wild West is back


The wild west of old American History is virtually back!

The Open Door era of our borders is virtually here!

The fact is our virtual borders have never existed.  They have never been protected.  Our citizens who move on to the virtual sphere are possible victims for all kinds of crime!

Henry Repeating Arms,
Springfield Armory,
Sharps, Gatling

When Americans protected themselves the did not do it with vests and shields to stop the bullets and let the predators keep up the assault . The industry saw the market and supplied the weapons to fire back.

The WWW means the Wild Wild West is back. There are NO laws!?  There is only access. Do you really think that the predators of the WWW are Americans because you live in America?  Do you think they are English because you live in England?

Do you think the Police, who protect us, are doing ‘all we can do’ because they are doing ‘something’? They are doing nothing and that is all they can do and it is ‘nothing’!

The call to action: Create and supply the Weapon needed in the WWW to STOP the predator and protect ourselves!


Happy Spot

Where has my Happy Spot gone?

I’m sitting here in the dark typing on a keyboard. At one time this was pleasing for me. I remember when I was hospitalized recovering from surgery, lying in bed, looking at the television screen, confused that I could find the keyboard that paired with the monitor! My thought then was “F*** it all. If they won’t give me the keyboard it is their problem”. Well it wasn’t my problem anyway. Now I’m here doing nothing and still not happy. What the hell has happened?

I guess the goal in life is not finding my Happy Spot after all. Looking for some Happy Spot is just what we do. Not finding it is mostly what happens. I find myself settling for what makes me feel the least bad. And even that is hard lately. But. . . There is always something at the bottom of the list. It is the nature of a list! To have a last item!

I kept a pile of ROCKs in the backyard and a large hammer in the tool shed and it gave me pleasure making ROCKs into GRAVEL. Not that having GRAVEL is a better thing than having ROCKs but destroying ROCKs myself seemed better than seeing others do it. ROCKs were just a placeholder for other things in life. Now all I see is other destroying ROCKs and I have no pleasure in it.

It seems that the whole world doesn’t give a damn. And I don’t either. What a pathetic state to have no Happy Spot to search for.


July 4th 2020

One Day in 20 years (1763-1783) became Independence Day – On July 4, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year on the fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.

The Revolutionary War (1775-83), also known as the American Revolution, which arose from growing tensions between residents of Great Britain’s 13 North American colonies and the colonial government, which represented the British crown, started as an insurrection.

The French and Indian War, or Seven Years’ War (1756-1763), brought new territories under the power of the crown, but the expensive conflict lead to new and unpopular taxes.

For more than a decade before the outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775,  the British government attempted to raise revenue by taxing the colonies (notably the Stamp Act of 1765, the Townshend Acts of 1767 and the Tea Act of 1773), which met with heated protest among many colonists. Colonial resistance led to violence in 1770, when British soldiers opened fire on a mob of colonists, killing five men in what was known as the Boston Massacre.  After December 1773, when a band of Bostonians dressed as Mohawk Indians boarded British ships and dumped 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party, an outraged Parliament passed a series of measures (known as the Intolerable, or Coercive Acts) designed to reassert imperial authority in Massachusetts. Skirmishes between British troops and colonial militiamen in Lexington and Concord in April 1775 kicked off the armed conflict. It was an insurrection by colonist who resented their lack of representation in Parliament and demanded the same rights as other British subjects. Notice that the wording of this statement implies acceptance that colonists were indeed British subject. Changing this status was not a goal.

When British General Lord Charles Cornwallis and his army surrendered to General George Washington’s American force and its French allies at the Battle of Yorktown on October 19, 1781, it was more than just military win. The outcome in Yorktown, Virginia marked the conclusion of the last major battle of the American Revolution and the start of a new nation’s independence.

Though the movement for American independence effectively triumphed at the Battle of Yorktown, contemporary observers did not see that as the decisive victory yet. British forces remained stationed around Charleston, and the powerful main army still resided in New York. Though neither side would take decisive action over the better part of the next two years, the British removal of their troops from Charleston and Savannah in late 1782 finally pointed to the end of the conflict. British and American negotiators in Paris signed preliminary peace terms in Paris late that November, and on September 3, 1783, Great Britain formally recognized the independence of the United States in the Treaty of Paris. At the same time, Britain signed separate peace treaties with France and Spain (which had entered the conflict in 1779), bringing the American Revolution to a close after eight long years.



Look at this! Another thing I had nothing to do with. Washington, D.C., D.C. in full District of Columbia, city and capital of the United States of America. Its population ranks it 50 out of 52 (2 states are smaller) and its size ranks it 51 out of 51. Source It is coextensive with the District of Columbia (the city is often referred to as simply D.C.) and is located on the northern shore of the Potomac River at the river’s navigation head—that is, the transshipment point between waterway and land transport. The state of Maryland borders the District of Columbia to the north, east, and west, and the state of Virginia borders the District on the southern shore of the Potomac River.

After the American Civil War (1861–65), the city of Washington expanded beyond its originally planned boundaries and became legally indistinguishable from the District of Columbia. Washington, D.C., remains a territory, not a state, and since 1974 it has been governed by a locally elected mayor and city council over which Congress retains the power of veto.

Washington, D.C., remains a territory, not a state, but where is it listed? I don’t see it here.


The Washington metropolitan area covers nearly 4,000 square miles (10,360 square km) and encompasses 10 counties, 5 in Maryland (Montgomery, Prince George’s, Frederick, Charles, and Calvert) and 5 in Virginia (Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Stafford, and Prince William).

Area District, 68 square miles (176 square km). Pop. (2000) 572,059; Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Division, 3,727,565; Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Area, 4,796,183; (2010) 601,723; Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Division, 4,377,088; Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Area, 5,582,170.

The role Washington plays as the capital of the United States often overshadows its lively local history and its complex political, economic, and social issues.

About half the land in Washington is owned by the U.S. government, which pays no taxes on it. Several hundred thousand people in the D.C. metropolitan area work for the federal government.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats were working “to correct an injustice.” but it indicates that she doesn’t know it was their choice to live in a territory as with all other residents of territories.

“For more than two centuries, the residents of Washington D.C., the District of Columbia, have been denied their right to fully participate in their democracy,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference at the Capitol in the lead up to the vote. “Instead, they have been dealt the injustice of paying taxes, proudly serving in uniform in great numbers and contributing to the economic power of our nation while being denied the full enfranchisement which is their right.”



On June 15, 2020 I inquired to AXIOS.COM about an article presented by APPLE.

In an article yesterday you warn me of fraud schemes. What is being done about this environment? What is being done about the perps? Is anything being done more than telling me it happens?
I feel this is THE area we need to change in this new normal. The laws has made this possible just as police abuse? replied with “Thanks for writing. There have been a number of prosecutions related to the latest fraud schemes. Law enforcement agencies and other interested parties are tracking things closely and tell me they are doing all they can to fight back — and also that it takes vigilance on the part of consumers to report what they see. I appreciate your concern for the issue and thank you for reading Axios!”

I replied for more information with “Hello Jennifer, The statement you made is just what I have been hearing.  “Law enforcement agencies and other interested parties are tracking things closely and tell me they are doing all they can to fight back“. I fear What that actually means is ’there is nothing they can do’ . This seems to be because they involve text messages and websites. I’m hearing it has to do with jurisdictions. Examples that I have reported: 1. text/email msg from Verizon and Wells Fargo that come from a Gmail account. 2. ATT suport email that says there is a problem with subscriber email account sent from Yahoo and Gmail addresses. 3. text msg about covid-19 that says to contact a website given in the text that is still operational until I lookup the website stats and report the abuse to the ISP and the website is taken down.  Instances like these indicate to me that “all they can do” is very far from enough. And it is ridiculous to see Police departments issue warning to be careful instead of Prosecuting. If it is the laws as written that form this barrier the laws need to be exposed and changed. Can you help verify these seemingly accurate conclusions? Thank you.” I received no response

so I concluded on Jun 17, 2020 “I assume, because I have not seen your reply to the contrary, that my fears about your statement being without material content is true! I have been hoping the ’New Normal’ could include a completion of the Freedom movement of the mid 20th century which deteriorated into an effective Rights movement. The concept that Freedoms, from the constitutions, is composed of Rights and Responsibilities, was too complex for the times and may still be. The idea that Rights can be violated without incurring the Responsibility for the action is too ingrained in our Judicial System and Way-of-Life to be questioned. I regret the first computer virus that was injected into PCs was tolerated instead of prosecuted. But it did start a whole new industry of antivirus programs. I will continue my efforts at Thank you for your attention but no thanks for the followup.”



What is Justice that we are seeking IT for BLM. Is it something that you can get? Is it something that you came give. What are in the pans of the Scale of Justice?

Maybe IT is not Justice that they/we seek. Could it retaliation for violations of the Right that we already have! Are these violators that will not accept any Responsibility for their violations. Responsibility is not something we decide to Accept, It is something we Have by way of our Actions.


Oxygen Please

When I visit my Doctor for a regular visit the first thing done by a Nurse is to record my ‘vitals’. I cannot remember when it started but a regular reading is my saturated oxygen level, pulse rate and blood pressure. My general doctor is a cardio-pulmonary specialist which probably caused saturated oxygen level to be added quickly to the vitals group. I had occasional breathing congestion for so many years I cannot remember and at one point they, medical profession, gave it the name of COPD. Unfortunately there are many of us with widely varying problems grouped in this category because the first letter stands for Chronic. Whatever the history, oxygen is important and the standard it 95%-100%. For us with ‘conditions’, 90%-100% is good. This value has never indicated a problem for me.

Now I read that Covid-19 can cause a lower value, even to 50%, without showing respiratory distress. What this means for us is that Covid-19 will start by lowering the value before it goes real low and you feel it. I actually did not find any indication that the value drops as the disease worsen only that doctors find the value low!

In an article ‘Can a Pulse Oximeter Save Your Life if You Have COVID-19?’ Dr. Richard Levitan, who’s been an emergency room physician for some 30 years reports his experience with Covid-19 patients durning a stay in an ER of a large NYC hospital. excerpts follow.

A pulse oximeter works by passing beams of light through your finger and calculating blood-oxygen levels based on light absorption.

Dr. Levitan refers to this hard-to-detect type of oxygen deprivation (or hypoxia) as a silent killer. After observing patients during a 10-day volunteering stint in the ER at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, he wrote about this aspect of the virus in an opinion piece in The New York Times. I reviewed this article in my post in April. The question is the ‘hard-to-detect’seems to be done regularly by my general doctor every visit. The oxygen depletion may not be apparent immediately because the virus attacks the lungs in such a way that the patient gradually gets less and less oxygen over time, according Levitan. “These patients do not feel like they have breathing difficulty because they slowly adjust to the lower oxygen,” he says. The oximeter may provide a simple way to spot potential health trouble, but it’s not a substitute for a doctor’s consultation. “Why not have one?” he says. “A pulse oximeter is a very easy gadget to use. It’s not costly and it’s not invasive. Within 10 to 15 seconds, you’ll get an oxygen saturation reading. If it plummets below 90, you may need supplemental oxygen.”

Some people with the novel coronavirus have alarmingly low levels of blood oxygen, and they don’t even have a clue that their lives are in danger. They don’t appear to have any major trouble breathing, so they don’t realize how dire their situation may be. The phenomenon has been raising concern among doctors, because these individuals typically need emergency medical attention to survive. “The level of oxygen that these people are reaching can be so low that it’s amazing to me not only that they’re alive, but that they’re often not in distress,” says Richard Levitan, MD, an emergency physician in Littleton, New Hampshire, and the president of Airway Cam Technologies, a company that teaches courses in intubation and airway management. “They may be awake, alert, and even on their cell phones.” According to Levitan, he and other doctors are seeing many coronavirus patients who are breathing fairly well when they check in to the hospital, but upon examination it’s clear they have pneumonia and their lungs are failing to sufficiently oxygenate their blood. A normal blood oxygen reading would be between 95 and 100 percent, according to the Mayo Clinic. Anything under 90 is considered unhealthy. While at Bellevue in March, Levitan saw coronavirus patients with measurements as low as 50 percent. When oxygen levels sink this far, Levitan expects patients to have much more apparent trouble breathing. Instead, these patients were often coming into the ER only after recently noticing a shortness of breath and having been sick with symptoms like fever, cough, upset stomach, and fatigue for a week.

He was perplexed. “If you get this low with your oxygen, your brain doesn’t like it,” he says. “You have respiratory failure, you pass out, or you have a seizure.” But that wasn’t happening with the patients he was seeing. He explains that with COVID-19, the lungs initially remain “compliant,” meaning not yet stiff or heavy with fluid, so they’re able to get rid of carbon dioxide even as their ability to provide oxygen to the body becomes impaired. A buildup of carbon dioxide would cause patients to become lethargic or unconscious. To compensate, individuals breathe faster and deeper, and this change in respiration, Levitan says, increases inflammation in the lungs while also, for a while, masking some symptoms of pneumonia.

Identifying pneumonia early on before it advances can help a patient beat the disease and perhaps avoid more extreme measures like being put on a ventilator. “Through all of medicine, we know that earlier diagnosis and earlier treatment make a difference,” says Levitan. He adds that some of the most effective interventions can also be the least complicated. “For example, giving people oxygen and turning people onto their stomach — what we call proning — can reduce ventilator necessity,” he says. “People come in with oxygen levels in the 50s, and after we’ve turned them on their stomachs and given them oxygen their oxygen levels are in the 90s.” “Fixating on pulse oximeter readings may provide a false sense of security,” warns Albert Rizzo, MD, the chief medical officer for the American Lung Association. “In some cases, they do catch lung problems before you struggle with shortness of breath. However, it is also possible for the device to show healthy oxygen saturation levels even when experiencing trouble breathing, which may lead some individuals to delay seeking urgently needed care.” “Everybody I know has anxiety about this disease,” he says. “One way to give patients assurance that they’re okay is to empower them to self-monitor, and adding pulse oximetry does that. 


Americanism Responsibility

Like people — and most anything in life — there are brands that are responsible and ethical, and there are others that are not. Yes, without a doubt, Americanism is a force for good.  Its intentions have been perverted, and the protection it offers has disappeared.  We have got to do better and find a way to a responsible free market. Taken from this article. And part 2 of the article

Simply by staying in our homes, we have collectively lowered the death rate from a projected 2.2 million American deaths to 63,538 confirmed deaths as of this post. This lower death number is not evidence that this was “no big deal.” Quite the opposite. You and I made that lower number happen. It is confirmation of the power of scale and our own personal power to change the world. Plainly put, we can either honor those 63,538 people by getting our collective shit together and forging ahead anew, or we can go back to clearing the shelves of Walmart, drinking every sugary Coke, and “liking” every duck-lipped Insta post of our favorite Armenian makeup moguls. The choice is ours.


Manipulation Organization

Lyle Hoover, waiting outside for his first haircut since the lockdown, thought it was about time. “As this thing barrels on, I can’t help but think we’re being manipulated.”

“There’s no organization. There’s no real plan. Just open up and we’ll see what happens,” she said.(Tara Brendle) “We all know there’s going to be a resurgence in cases. But if they don’t know what to do, I sure as hell don’t.”

Confidence in the governor was not enhanced when Parson decided to mark the reopening by touring an electrical contractor and a hunting and fishing store without wearing a face mask, in a pointed rejection of federal health recommendations.  
“I think it’s up to the individual,” Parson said in response to a question during his afternoon news conference. “I don’t think its government’s role to mandate who wears a mask and who doesn’t.” “I chose not to,” he said. “I don’t think that it is government’s role to mandate who wears one.”
Even as the state endured its largest increase in coronavirus cases on Monday, Missouri’s Republican governor, Mike Parson, decided to press ahead with his plan to allow businesses to reopen and to lift restrictions on social gatherings imposed as the pandemic crept closer six weeks ago.

Last week, Vice President Mike Pence chose not to wear a mask while touring the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in apparent violation of the medical center’s policy requiring them.
