It’s Amazing What You’ll Find on the Internet

Out of curiosity, I completed an internet search seeking to determine, simply, if there were any immigrant child detention centers in Arizona.  Considering Arizonians back and forth position on illegal immigration I was pretty sure no one would stand for any such facility in the state.   To my shock, I was able to find, not only the number of centers but, the exact location of the centers.  There are 9 in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area alone !!


A NEW LEAF operates two of them.  SOUTHWEST KEY PROGRAM, INC.  operates the other 7.  4 are in Mesa.  3 are in Phoenix.  1 is in Glendale.  1 is in Peoria.  One of the facilities in Phoenix is 5 streets west of, and two blocks north of, Phoenix Children’s Hospital.  I can get there by bicycle.


The centers are referred to as “foster care centers”.  Apparently, we here in Arizona have a huge problem with illegal immigration until we can make some money off of it.  Then, we welcome it with open arms.

Trump: “Real power is, I don’t even want to use the word, ‘Fear.’ ” — I’ll Be Blunt

In 2016, candidate Trump was being interviewed by Robert Costa when he uttered this sentence. Certainly, a voice of a dictator wannabe / mafia crime boss wannabe. Yesterday, the Washington Post released an article titled, “Bob Woodward’s new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency”. It was written by Robert Costa and Philip Rucker. […]

There’s No Such Thing As Objective Truth – WTF????

Does the world actually believe the absolute insanity that is coming out of Giuliani’s mouth lately? Truth isn’t truth. Everyone has their own truth. Oh man. There’s no such thing as objective truth. This guy is losing it too.

No Rudy. Truth is truth. Period. Alternative facts are lies. Period. Objective truth is exactly that – objective, verifiable, proven. Objective truth is fact. Period.

Again, only the uneducated are falling for this garbage.

Man, yet another disappointing week in the home gym. Too many excuses for putting off workouts and then spending the rest of the day being mad at myself for doing so.

Changing workout again to a four day rotating powerlifting series. 1×5 warm up. 2×3 75% 1 rep max. 3×2 80%. 5×1 85%.

This is a 20 minute embarrassing attempt at consistency.
