Edit: I got my answer pretty much. It seems she’ll avoid me throughout the day now and it’s pretty apparent she never had an interest in me. Somehow she thought I was or something. I really didn’t want to have this happen again, I don’t even try to.. but now I gotta find a way to move on…

The last woman I was interested in ended in a bad way. Feeling rejected I told myself to never get involved with anyone ever again, especially a co worker, hence my previous post was centered around a co worker who seemed to have the hots for me.

Well soon after I wrote that post I became interested. Its unclear if she is still interested or even ever was, it could have been me subconsciously trying to make it seem like she was, but maybe it’s just me interested and she’s probably just wondering why I don’t really talk like what most of the other men do there.

The biggest hurdle for me right now is the fear of being rejected again. I didn’t take it too well the last time and it’s really not fun to have to deal with it with having to see the person at work after they rejected you. So now history is repeating itself and now I have been stupid enough to get too involved where I should have been more firm with my rule, don’t date a co worker. That includes talking to them possibly sparking an infatuation with them.

I don’t know this woman’s name but I find her attractive which doesn’t help and I have been avoiding the idea of sparking a social encounter but every morning I work, I’ve been saying hi and smiling to her hoping that she’ll make the first move. It probably won’t work causing her to move on and possibly making things way too awkward and I’ll end up spiraling down even further by never getting involved with a woman.

But at the same time she seems like the type to want kids or already has one and that’s another problem, I don’t want kids. Mainly I don’t want to bring someone into this world because of all the hate, corruption, greed and high cost of living. I’m ok with adopting when I’m financially well. The fact im barely holding it together financially trying to get a new car, a 2019 or 2020 Dodge Challenger and I’ll most likely end up with the V6 3.6L version. Which is fine because I don’t need the Hemi V8 or the 800hp Dodge Demon until I’m retired anyway.

Back to this woman I’m just not sure if it’s a good idea to get involved mainly due to kids. Of course I haven’t even really talked to her because I’m too mentally unstable to deal with another rejection case. It would actually be worse if I started talking to her because I would be more likely to have an emotional bond with her and if things go south, I’ll end up with a worse psyche than I already got and with women, I’m already fractured to the point of no return. So while I’m flirting with this danger I think that if she is one of those women who will approach me it’ll be less painful, but if she forces me to try which i am trying little by little it’s already leading to problems. Other then the morning I have had no luck in trying to bump into her making it seem like this isn’t going to work.

And believe me for the most part i haven’t cared. It was until she started saying morning is when I started getting interested but anywhere else I seen her it was always stupid glances or stares. So while every morning we can say our hello, that’s about as far as I’m willing to take it unless something happens or she decides to approach me it’s unlikely we’ll even be work friends. I’m at least interested in that but if I do too much work to try to talk to her it’ll never work out because I would get too obsessed over her and right now I’m just sort of rattled but if she left today I’d be able to move on easy but most likely avoid any other interaction with other women. If she can’t help me no one else will be capable of handling the task because I’ll be putting my foot down declaring I won’t ever get involved with any woman, even if she makes very signal in the world to get me involved.

I’m just in terrible shape and getting rattled over her without even knowing her shows how bad my mental state is with women really is. I’m not ready for a relationship or dating and I’m not sure if I’m capable of a female work friend yet. Hopefully she understands it’s going to take time for me to work through this and all I can do is take it one step at a time, try to deal with day to day, not the future. If it doesn’t work out it’s more of a reason for me not to get involved with someone. We’ll see but I’m not getting my hopes up with this woman. I am not ready to go through another rejection and already it seems like she may have started to give up but for now the mornings are working well.

The best part is im working in the nearby plant so I can at least focus on trying to make myself more comfortable around her and she may feel comfortable enough to have a brief conversation if she’s really that interested. Doesn’t help that there are other women that the guys have been trying to get me to talk to awhile back but since i won’t be there for several days it might be easier to interact with her throughout the day later on.. but it’ll be difficult because these other two women are constantly around one of them keeps staring in my general location and that just is way uncomfortable and I’m trying to focus on the one i lije who looks more my age. I’m 39 and these other woman must be in their 20s. Either way I don’t have any interest in them even if the one i like doesn’t work out.

Unless you haven’t been paying attention, climate change hysteria fueled by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg along with politicians across the world has been freaking some people out over climate change fears, like if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels we’ll be on fire, or under an ocean… or California will end up in an ice age. One of the biggest things right now is that internal combustion engine vehicles that run on gas and coal is under fire right now for existing.

The problem is, there is no climate crisis caused by vehicle emissions. Climate change has been happening since the dawn of time and continues to change. Droughts, forest fires and temperature changes isn’t something new, nor caused by vehicle emissions. Its nature.

Nature also corrects human mistakes, such as the fires in Australia which was man made and since a lot of animals were killed in the fire and some of the forest has been lost a huge rain bomb occurred. The planet corrected itself by making it rain. Arsonists was to blame for the fires, it didn’t help that the forest was dry enough for the fires to get out of control. The planet is fine, it’s the people we need to worry about because right now people have schemed up this idea that we are causing all the bad weather in the world and we need to switch to cleaner energy and abandon our use of fossil fuels. The problem is, everything uses fossil fuels. So switching to electric vehicles is like a drop in the ocean compared to the mass amount of production around the world. It doesnt do anything when coal is worse but coal plants do burn cleaner than they did when they first were around.

The biggest push is electric vehicles right now. Major manufacturers are starting to build them however a lack of materials for the batteries isnt making mass production possible. The long recharge times and lack of range especially in the cold are 2 major problems of EVs and even then the longevity of the batteries and electric motors is another story as they’re expensive to replace. It’s not cheap to replace a gas engine or transmission either but sometimes its cheaper to repair them. Repairing a blown head gasket vs an engine rebuild is a no brainer. Just got to have around $1,000 to make that happen vs a $4,000 engine rebuild. But electric car motors run about $3,000 per wheel and EV batteries are higher than $5,000. It makes no sense to invest in electric cars. Especially since the batteries are holding these cars from getting more mainstream. People talk about them but most don’t want one. Hydrogen is another energy but so far its supposedly inefficient, but would be far better than gas and with some modifications hydrogen could be used in current gasoline vehicles, making it a much more practical use of our technology. EVs are a stop gap and its most likely they won’t be around for much longer when the amount of EVs being sold is dwarfed by gasoline vehicles. While some countries are getting mostly EVs those are smaller countries.. even California has a small amount of EV market share. They want to ban gasoline vehicles but its unlikely in the event many people will be upset and the ban may never take hold. Not to mention bigger cars can’t handle range as good and towing reduces the charge level to about 30 minutes. Doubtful we’ll see many electric trucks in the future even though they’re trying to make them, they just won’t be practical for towing.

So bottom line is gas is here to stay for awhile at least until 2040 when they try to ban gasoline vehicles and may succeed if EVs get their way and have better range and short recharge times. Then theres the longevity factor. I would recommend sticking with gas or at the very least a hybrid. At least you can save some money on gas and not have to worry about polluting as much. Even Dodge is trying an electric torque assist to reduce gas consumption. Don’t buy into this EV insanity because it most likely won’t happen for quite a while at least.

Optimists have been wrong about EV adoption as predictions have been set too high. EV sales only account for around 1% in the U.S. and majority of it is Tesla model 3 in California. After seeing the 5 hour Tesla pileup at a supercharger station I’m sure a few of the owners have gotten rid of them. Of course some of them are loyal to a fault and this isn’t really good especially when EVs have a set of problems.

In Chicago there are a couple charging outlets for apartment dwellers but having 2 outlets is not good for those who want to wake up to a full charge and since some of them have time limits its going to be difficult for those who may be on vacation and want to come back to a full charge. It may be difficult for those who are thinking of buying one and worry about having access to them. Then there is the cost to install a charger for these EVs. It affects rent and will bring the rent fee up. That depends whether it effects all the residents or those who only choose to buy one, however I would be looking for an apartment that doesn’t have this extra cost as others will because who wants to pay more for rent for stuff they wont ever use.

So despite there could be a charger for an EV at one apartment, if you decide to move you may not get the ability to charge and will end up going back to gas.

And if it was as easy to have an outlet more apartments would include them for engine block heaters or battery chargers for gasoline vehicles. In my experience though, the 10 or so apartments I’ve lived at didn’t have outlets for cars. Neither I saw the 20 or 30 either. Living in the Midwest having an engine block heater would be nice and again, car companies would have made these engine block heaters standard so the vehicles are already ready to go with the cabin heater pumping out heat within a minute. But this never happened. Its only if you have access to a plug is where you are able to ask for an engine block heater and again most vehicles I seen dont have them. Its always been an option most likely an aftermarket piece that was probably more for diesel engines than gasoline. If you see a plug like an extension cord sticking out the front grill, that’s generally for an engine block heater that’s just sitting there.

So with this in mind, no.. power outlets won’t be in every parking space, nor will they exist in many apartment/condos or for street parking. Even if one apartment does add more charging spots, its only if the demand is there. It’s unlikely that will happen seeing as many will continue buying gas vehicles.

The argument is, gasoline vehicles ran into the same problems. Not enough gas stations. People didnt change over from horse and carriage overnight. Even then you just drove where there was a gas station. It was also easy to build gas stations as well due to the vast amount of places to put them. And if you needed to go somewhere where there wasn’t a gas station you took a horse. And who knows, the range on the early cars could have been all you needed. Driving more than 20 miles in may have seemed silly back then. Now people go over 500 miles on a trip. But the transition from gas to electric may take far longer or it may not happen at all. Its dependent on every parking space at home to have a charging outlet and that’s unlikely, especially when someone can come along and unplug it while you are trying to wake up to a full charge, people will do something like this and cause mayhem for many motorists. Charging an EV can take over 30 minutes and wouldn’t work when the convenience of having a 5 minute refuel time on a gas vehicle. So even if there was charging outlets at home it would still make sense to have faster recharge times which would reduce the lifespan of the batteries. Cold climates is another problem as you lose 40% of your charge due to heating the cabin and keeping the battery warm. This also doesnt work for apartment renters. Those 2 outlets will be a fight if 3 or more people want to keep their batteries charging overnight forcing the landlord to consider adding more charging stations driving up renting even higher depending on whether they make all residents pay or just the EV owners. In turn I recommend people who are looking for apartments to avoid the apartments that have charging stations as they might be paying more rent for something they’ll never use.

2019 had very lacking EV sales. There are claims that pre orders for the new Tesla truck and other EVs in the works are selling out. Seems like a selling point to me as car companies can boast about preorder sales when the product hasn’t even been completed as the sale has not been completed. That 50k or so pre orders can end up as 5k. Or it can be 100k. Pre orders is not actual sales.

Also looking at actual used EV inventories most used EVs are either EVs from 2012 or the used Teslas that is still $50k too high. Seeing how its mostly Teslas out on the road, eventually those high resale values is going to drop like a bowling ball. So while city mandates could force apartment owners to install charging outlets the demand may remain small as you can move to another city that doesnt have charging outlets available. In effect people will not gamble they will have the ability to charge everywhere. No matter what some EV enthusiasts say, there isnt charging outlets in every apartment. If you park your vehicle at home and dont see an outlet you’re not going to consider getting an EV. Even if they were to be standard it’s unlikely you’ll still consider one if you are not in the market buying one.

The government, EV enthusiasts and environmentalists all would like to force people to buy one and not let the free market decide and if it was total free market, electric vehicles wouldn’t stand a chance which is why the extreme push for them. That wont work either, not unless EVs exceed everything a gasoline vehicle can and its unlikely that will happen until the 2040s and even then there at least will be another 20 years before they would dominate roads. Unless of course we allow politicians to get in the way of allowing people to drive gas cars freely and tax free. Bottom line is the future is bleak if people get their way and force everyone onto EVs.

For me, Honda and Toyota gas vehicles are proven. They’re not broken and last forever on the orginal drivetrain (usually, anyways) so I dont see any need to replace them with batteries.

Line For Tesla Supercharger Stretches Beyond Belief

Imagine having to spend an hour waiting to gas up your vehicle. It takes 3 minutes to refuel a gasoline tank while it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to almost 12 hours to charge an EV or electric vehicle back up. Now imagine having to wait in a line for an electric vehicle that has a queue of 10 vehicles or more. From the line there was at least 50 vehicles. They would be waiting at least for 5 hours.

Some say they need more chargers, except.. supposedly they can charge at home. Well it’s a problem if you are not at home or worse yet there’s no way to charge at home. Most EV enthusiasts have a garage or somewhere to charge at home. However, most do not have the ability to charge at home. Mostly apartments or condos and even some homes dont have a spot where they can hook up to an outlet.

As it stands the infrastructure wont support EVs. They can put charging stations around but it still takes 30 minutes or longer to charge. You will still have lines unless a mass quantity of charging stations were to be built. That may not be cheap to do either. The charge time is just too long and besides the cold draining the battery EVs are just not practical for many.

However EV enthusiasts, politicians and environmentalists dont seem to care that the negatives outweighs the positive of EV use. They’re pushing EVs too early and it’s going to lead to an early failure. Not that I don’t mind it failing but the fact is EVs are not going to make it. Not when people are being forced into buying one.

To top it off the forced EV adoption is costing jobs to make regular gas vehicles. Then again the auto sales are slumping in general. I don’t know about you but EVs are not practical for the most part and I don’t even want one.

EVs or electric vehicles has only been successful to the EV fanatics for the past decade, but already people are trying to push them onto everyone and wanting to end the gasoline engine one way or another, most likely banning them from being on the roads.

Some others are doing away with all vehicles while others are constantly saying EVs will take over the automotive industry. But the truth is no one really wants them. Dealerships are keeping gas vehicles in the front and the little EV collection they got is in the back and the vehicles are never charged. Which of course would be happening everywhere if it wasn’t always a topic of conversation in the social media. Car magazines are always talking about new EV vehicles even though people don’t want to hear about them. And really Tesla boasts about faster acceleration times and little maintenance.

One thing that isn’t talked about is how much of a pain it is to actually own one. First off they’re terrible in the cold, especially if you don’t have a garage. The solution, turn down the heat. That doesnt help those who want to blast the heat to stay toasty in subzero temps.

The other would be, you only have to drive 20 miles, grab a bite to eat while your car is charging. Oh so the money you save on gas will go to a $15 meal. You are not saving anything there when you could be somewhere else not spending your hard earned cash or would rather spend your money on an Amazon item. Whatever the case is, electric cars are trash in the cold. Efficiency in gas cars is only bad when the vehicle is cold but they warm up in 10 minutes essentially returning your efficiency.

Long recharge times. The solution, charge it at home. Does no good when you don’t have anywhere to plug it in. Somehow EV enthusiasts think that everyone has a garage or something magical to recharge their vehicle while parked on the street. One guy with a Tesla ran out of battery power and recharged his car in someone’s outdoor power outlet. If that’s not enough… you got someone driving a gas car pulling a diesel generator just to recharge your EV. The future is stupid. Because at some point you’ll have a power outage and have nowhere to charge your EV. Case in point California pressures people into EVs then cuts the power. At least gas stations have backup generators. For some reason the EV crowd doesn’t know that one either.

Also they either can’t keep up with battery production or they dont have enough materials to create enough of the batteries. Either way, the price won’t ever go down. Not at least until, if they come out with another battery type or whatever and that will be artificially priced high for quite some time.

Now i get we can’t keep using gasoline because at some point we’ll run out and having cleaner air is something we could use and need but gasoline cars isnt an issue right now and we got plenty of gas to go around.

But the bottom line is that electric vehicles won’t be a viable replacement to gasoline for at least several decades. By 2050 there may be other options that hasn’t been considered or invented yet. To ban gasoline vehicles you are going to disrupt the economy in a bad way where it may have trouble recovering from. Already Audi has plans to cut 7,000 workers all in the name of producing more EVs when EVs are only a minor market. They’re expecting a surge of people to buy EVs even though sales has dropped both in the US and China. It’ll most likely stagnate and drop as more people are finding out that their EV resale value drops considerably. They’re going to think twice before buying a new EV and most likely will buy a gas vehicle.

No one wants a used EV when they have no clue if they’ll have to replace their $7,500+ battery if they will buy one. Another words the EV market will remain secluded to the EV enthusiasts. And with many major automakers spending tons of money on EV production its going to be an EV disaster that will most likely be really bad. At least many hope it will fail. Since people like me refuse to buy one if that’s all the automaker will offer the vehicle sales will tumble because nobody has time to wait for their vehicle to recharge, nor will they remember to plug it in at home if they got the capability not to mention you’ll most likely be plugging into a dirty electric grid and still be polluting.

I’d prefer to wait for a truly better car technology in which still takes decades of results for viability.

 

In one of my older posts, Nickel Metal Hydride batteries and chargers! I mentioned about some good rechargeable batteries and chargers. I have noticed that there’s still stores packed with alkalines. Some places like Amazon you could buy them in bulk for up to 5,000 batteries! That’s a lot of batteries!

Now I get why some people still use throwaway batteries, they get lost, stolen or you forget about them and you cant charge them anymore. Is that really that big of a concern though these days though?

Some guys happen to like the rechargeables though…

I remember when I first got into using rechargeable Ni-Cads they had some AAs that I used in a walkman for a period of time. I got maybe a year or 2 out of those batteries before they stopped working correctly but they managed to save me some money. I don’t really recall seeing replacements, as I thought they just came with the charger and you’d have to buy another charger to get the batteries so my collection of rechargeables were quite low.

Yes, over time they did stop working right and I went back to alkalines for a period and then I got some new Rayovac Nickel-Metal Hydride cells that worked quite well for awhile anyways. I got maybe 3 or 4 years out of those before they stopped working so I just quit using those. Got a friend into them as well since we both liked to listen to the same music. But again for awhile i went back to alkalines but I didnt really use them that often. It was until in 2005 I started using them again since Duracell and Energizer had them and they even sold the batteries separately. I still have working AAA Energizers and AA Duracells that gets used in string lights or those Duracell LED flashlights. I use a few in my noice canceling headphones still. And these are the batteries that lose their charge over a course of a month or 2. If they dont get used much they wont work as well either.

When those batteries were not working in a USB charging device I decided to check out what they had and found Eneloops. I also got into using more sophisticated chargers such as the Power Ex C9000 mentioned in the other blog, I posted in the beginning of this article. Because, well I like to get what I can out of these batteries.

The simplest and cheapest way to get into recharge AAs and AAAs is to buy the Panasonic/Eneloop charger that comes with 4 AA batteries. Find a device you use most often and use the Eneloop batteries right out of the package and you’ll see they work like regular alkalines (unless your device is weird and requires the higher voltage) when you need to recharge them keep a set of alkalines handy or if it’s a 2 AA or 1 AA you can cycle out the 4 AA Eneloops you have. This is a great way of starting out and you’ll see the savings within 4 or 5 recharge cycles.  I’m going to list a few problems people might have with rechargeables..

1. They’re more expensive than alkalines.

Yes they are, but after 2-6 cycles depending on what brand of batteries you get you might see savings sooner. Keep using them and you’ll see the benefits.

2. They don’t last as long and they won’t charge.

Most alkaline AA cells have over 3,000mAh but most of the time you can only get half that amount. It depends on your device but it may cut off before you use up all the energy out of your rechargeables. Don’t give up if it doesnt work well in one of your devices. That may require a higher voltage where your rechargeable batteries may not function as well. More devices these days are more rechargeable friendly and can operate on that 1.2v battery. You have to try a different device. Most flashlights will work on rechargeable batteries. That’s the easy way of seeing if your batteries are faulty.

Additionally you can always pick up a multimeter. If its 1.23v or higher you should be ok. If it charges normally in your Panasonic/Eneloop charger then it passed the internal resistance check and should be working well. If you are using a different charger than the ones I’ve mentioned there is no guarantee they’ll charge your batteries adequately.

If they appear to be charged and wont work well in your device, always try a different device such as a flashlight. Get a Fenix, Coast or Maglite. I’ve used rechargeables in those lights and they work well. The 1 AA or AAA lights are good to where you can check the batteries individually. A multimeter however is the best way to check voltage. Also check the contacts. If you are using a battery where the wrapper is blocking the negative terminals on some devices they wont work. I never seen any issues using Eneloops though.

Also, sometimes you just end up with a bad batch of batteries. It happens, sometimes the charger isn’t working correctly. You will have to contact the manufacturer or just get it exchanged where you bought them. Just make sure not to tell them you’re using a different charger. Don’t mention the charger you are using. If they ask for the model number, tell them you don’t have it with you, you are calling from work or you are out somewhere. If you are buying Eneloops and have the charger then it’s as easy as getting the batteries replaced.

3. My family tosses these rechargeable batteries in the garbage.

Its inevitable. They’re AA or AAA batteries. Some people are used to toss these batteries into the garbage. The easiest way is to stop tossing out alkalines and get a bin to put them in. If your family does this then chances are they’ll do the same for rechargeables. If not, leaving notes on the devices or by the trash cans to not toss out batteries may be needed. If that doesn’t work then you’ll simply have to take the batteries out period and they’ll have to ask to use them. At least they’ll be charged ready to go.

Here are some other tips to get you started.

1. Avoid buying large quantities of rechargeables for your first time. There isnt any need to replace all 60 of your devices with rechargeables. There is the problem of alkalines ruining devices so if this is a common problem for you, buy a set of these EBL batteries.

16 Pack EBL AA 2300mAh Rechargeable batteries
12 Pack EBL AAA 800mAh Rechargeable batteries

They are a little too much for beginners and they may not work as good for you as they do for me but there are positive reviews for these batteries and I haven’t ran into many issues with them. The AAAs are a better deal where you could use them in an AAA to AA adapter. They sell those on Amazon as well. The batteries should work fine in the Panasonic/Eneloop charger as well. No need to charge them for first usage either. Just stick them in your devices and use them. One thing to note, the low drain devices such as a clock or tv remote they wont get much use. So to avoid premature death I suggest they get charged at least once every 6 months but you can do every 3 months. Just swap them out for another set.

They seem to be low self discharge but I’d buy the lower capacity cells just to be sure. Eventually though I suggest to replace every device with Eneloops.

2. No need to drain them fully before recharging. Just dont recharge them constantly. You can use them until the device starts showing signs of the battery dying or as I mentioned earlier, every 3-6 months. Also once they do show signs of being near death, quit using them until they are recharged again. Excessive draining of the cells can cause a waste of cycle usage and the cells can reverse charge or overdrain which can make the batteries permanently weak and potentially die.

3. The only reason for using higher capacity cells is for additional run time. If it’s not critical to get an extra 5 minutes of run time get the lower capacity cells. 1900mAh AA Eneloop batteries and the 750mAh AAA Eneloops are just fine for any device. You get more charge cycles and less battery waste.

4. Rechargeable nickel metal batteries can be recycled at most any place. Check your department or hardware stores. I have noticed its more difficult to recycle alkalines then rechargeables, as I’ve seen they have recycling in some stores. Usually I toss out the non working batteries in a container but I dont have many dead rechargeables yet.

Overall I hope this will encourage people to buy rechargeables again, if not for the environment but for your wallet and hopefully less stores will be selling 60 alkaline battery packs. I know some like businesses may be hard set in using alkalines, I know my job uses them but I put rechargeables in my lights so I dont use their alkalines. I’ve had people say that I dont need to use mine and I should use the company’s batteries but well, my light, my rules..  I dont use alkalines anymore. Theres no point when it costs less than a penny to recharge a pair of AA batteries.

Also, I forgot to add here are the best rechargeables you might get including some that are ok. In both AA and AAA size.

01. The best!

Eneloops 1900mAh/750mAh, Fujitsu; white, 2100 charge cycles – Made in Japan

02. Good

Eneloop Pro 2450mAh/900mAh, Fujitsu; black, 500 charge cycles – Made in Japan
Duracell; 300-500 charge cycles – Made in Japan
Energizer; 300-500 charge cycles – Made in Japan
Amazonbasics; same as white or black Eneloops may be made in China (not verified if same or similar quality as Japan)

03. Ok (may be Chinese and of lesser quality)

Tenergy is in the middle of the road as I haven’t tried their AA/AAA cells but I got 2 9V cells with their charger that so far has been running strong.
EBL, Goal Zero, Sunlabz, Rayovac, and some other brands I don’t have names for currently. Avoid AA batteries that claim higher than 2900mAh capacity and AAA higher than 1100mAh capacity. I haven’t tested the AAA EBLs 1100 mAh cells but the AA 2800mAh cells they have got came in around 2600mAh I think. I dont recall.

The La Crosse cells are terrible and haven’t been upgraded from the older high self discharge Nickel Metal batteries. I currently have a set of AAs and AAAs that come with their BC-1000 charger, they are ok but I wouldn’t buy them regularly. Avoid Enercell and RadioShack batteries, they don’t last long in storage.

Maha/Power Ex chargers tend to be the best or the Panasonic/Eneloop charger. La Crosse chargers are not bad but do not have the internal resistance check that the Eneloop or Power Ex C9000 charger has. I have not tried any other charger and the Sky RC 3000 charger doesn’t keep the batteries secure enough for me.

Illinois recently passed a law making schools teach LGBT history. As if there was much history to begin with LGBT which I believe came around in the 70s or 80s, before that time homosexuality has been widely rejected and even illegal so they were placed in mental asylums. Now I do know of the horrific experiments being done to the mentally ill which was barbaric to say the least. So I’d like to think what we now call psychiatric hospitals (or institutions) have gotten much better.

Its unclear how being homosexual was no longer illegal let alone no longer a mental illness but it happened and it can only be speculated as someone paid some experts to be convinced to let them go. Supposedly there was an LGBT or active gay movement that started in the 1940s, but others say they started in the late 1980s.

Its difficult to say when the LGBT began but it could have been the gay active movement that caused homosexuality to become legalized and very rarely there was ever transgenders. Of course it wouldn’t be surprising that they did this in secret. They knew transgenders would never be accepted and they were first discovered in the 1940s but breast enhancements didn’t start until the 60s. So transgenders were often called cross dressers. They looked nothing like what their actual gender was, most often they were easily spotted and easily scared off from continuing the crossdressing. Theres also drag queens but its unclear whether they were the same as crossdressers. Bottom line these people were the first ‘transgenders’. They couldn’t have surgeries or drugs and kids were not being treated as being a transgender.

However the LGBT is hard pushing the agenda that kids are transgender and should be given drugs to stop puberty. This sort of thing should be illegal and abolished. Doctors are too quick in injecting poison into our children and mess up their thinking of things.

Instead of telling kids to accept their bodies for what they are and accept their assigned gender they’re being told, do what you feel like. As early as 3 years old a child who doesnt know how to tie his own shoes is being encouraged to live out their fantasy of being the incorrect or opposite assigned gender.

So how could transgender kids have existed so long before the drugs were even given? How is it no reports of kids being suicidal because they weren’t allowed to live out the gender they think they are? Its because it wasnt in their way of thinking. Other people placed this image into their heads and think, “if this person can do that then so can i.” Whether or not gender dysphoria is real, so called experts don’t care. They just say let the kid decide. A 3 year old child who can’t decide what to eat or wear is making a life altering decision that doesn’t just impact them physically with the hormone blocker drugs, it impacts them emotionally. When it comes to puberty and when a boy wants to be a girl but may like boys or girls (depending upon how much of their fantasy plays into what sex they desire) their life is going to be hell because neither sex wants to date someone who is transgender. Not to mention what kind of impact it’ll have on their peers especially if they decide to detransition. Either way transgenderism is making something simple into something extremely complicated. You are taking a perfectly healthy boy or man and trying to convert them into a girl or woman. Scientifically and spiritually, that is just wrong. A male having feelings of being a woman or a female doesn’t mean they are a woman/female. This is why these LGBT classes are unnecessary. This is why the state and people in general need to stay out of families noses. If they dont want their kids to turn out to be transgender then let them do it. Give them the resources to make that happen because if the kid ends up frustrated or suicidal it will be hell because the LGBT is making it impossible to let parents decide so they can try to force people to accept them. Because people won’t accept transgenders willingly, so they got to force people to accept them. This is why there is transgender kids, LGBT history class, transgender books for kids, and drag queen library recruitment centers. They deny that one because they don’t want to be seen as devious, evil people trying to convert parents kids. Yet if one kid claims to be transgender, other kids will follow regardless if they really feel that way.

This is why the transgender movement is out of control and really needs to be stopped.

There is a group called MassResistance, check them out if you are tired of transgender ideology being pushed onto children and pushed in society’s faces. Transgenders are mentally ill and there are plenty of transgenders who are either in prison or act crazy in public and a nuisance to society. No matter what someone tells you the LGBT is pushing lies onto the public and denying it. They know they are lies but then again it’s all brainwashing nonsense. Pull your kids out of public schools and take them to a Christian school that hasn’t abandoned their morals.

Just when you think we made strides in reducing racism in this country this one guy decided to act on his racism in a violent way. The shooter, Patrick Crusius clearly showed his racism against Mexican people.

You can’t believe how much this guy angers me. I got a few Mexican friends who has to deal with racism at one time or another. Its generally rare but its hurtful when people act this way towards Mexicans or anyone else in general. A ton of reports of Mexicans being harassed, at gas stations, restaurants, in stores and on the streets. Some people blame Trump but some of these racist people do support Trump.

Really it’s the people who are in need of help for the fact they can’t see the fact they are immigrants too. America is founded by immigrants and what people do when act racist they make it sound like there is something wrong with a certain group which turns into more hate. We need to set an example that Mexicans and any other race is welcomed in America because this is what America is. Its more than just a country with freedoms. It’s a country with many different races and cultures and everyone should be welcome. People have either forgotten or they simply do not understand what America is. America isnt all just white people. People need to understand this and let go of any hate. Unfortunately this may not be as easy as it seems and we’ll end up with another massacre because there is a lot of hateful people in this world. Americans and America in general needs many prayers.

I know as Christians we are to forgive and forget but what this shooter did, I find unforgivable what he did.
