Also, if your state's drivers licenses are not compliant with the REAL ID Act and your state hasn't been granted a waiver extension, your ability to access certain federal and military facilities may be limited and in the future, possibly your ability to board aircraft.  I mention this because, in my opinion, it is important for everyone to have a Passport for all the obvious reasons.  Below are some links that explain the REAL ID Act and your state's status:

Housing:  

Important note:  Just because a place is listed as 55+/low/fixed income or rent-adjusted/HUD subsidized, DO NOT overlook them.  Even if your income is well over the threshold to get a subsidized unit, some complexes will let you move in, but you will just have to pay the "market" rate.  And some of these places are absolutely beautiful, spacious, well-maintained and secure.  I know because my mom lived for years in a beautiful 2 bdr/2 ba, 1000 sq ft unit with full-sized washer & dryer and she loved it!  See the Gardens at Northgate Village in North Kansas City for an example.

Important Note:  As if we didn't already know, the 2016 general election definitively confirmed that there is a lot of misinformation and disinformation floating around out there, even from websites and other sources that claim to be legitimate fact verification websites and yes, the same ones that are often cited by the mainstream media as holy grails of truth. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend one website from which to get absolutely accurate information, so I suggest that you consult multiple websites and just because they echo each other's claims doesn't necessarily make the claim true.  Also, I'm sure everyone's heard the adage, "follow the money."   Find out who operates and funds the website or source and you can pretty much tell whether you're dealing with a biased resource and whether you can trust it.

-----------

President Thomas Jefferson famously said, "Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle."  and "If you are relying upon the media for the facts, you are receiving nothing but distortion and propaganda."


Today, small groups of very well-funded organizations are propagating a "hate America/America is a bad country" mantra and they are embraced by a complicit mainstream media that wants to fundamentally change the fabric of this country in order to implement a socialist/communist agenda. Many of these organizations are funded by billionaire international financier and Communist, George Soros. Many of his sponsored organizations have names that are intentionally misleading, so that many people and many large corporations think they are supporting noble causes when in fact, they are doing the devil's work.  Check these lists and if you support any of these organizations, STOP! Article here.  Article here.  Article here. 


Consider that 90% of the so-called "mainstream media" is controlled by 6 large corporate media conglomerates that are overwhelmingly left-wing biased.  Don't believe me?  See  "Here's Who Owns Everything in Big Media Today" by Vox, a left-wing website.  Then, go to OpenSecrets  or  Follow the Money  or the Federal Election Commission and look up the breakdown of corporate contributions.  Also, go to each company's respective website, pull up their list of corporate management and board of directors and plug in their names into those websites to see to whom and what they contributed money. 


If you watch the mainstream media, you’d obviously think the conservative aspect is bad, but have you ever wondered why the liberals think they have a monopoly on truth and virtuosity?  What necessarily makes the liberal side the correct side and aside from constantly throwing out accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, and on and on and on, why don’t they ever explain to you why the conservative side is necessarily bad or even tell you about it at all?  Hmmm???  Something to ponder. And consider all the high-profile people/stories/incidents that the media completely ignored, glossed over or got completely wrong and, in some cases, viciously and hatefully maligned innocent parties and organization for months and even years with no retractions or apologies whatsoever for trying to ruin their lives and doing so in many cases.  Remember these?:  Clarence Thomas, Richard Jewell, Cambridge Police incident, Duke Univ. Lacrosse, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Herman Cain, Little Sisters of the Poor, Southern Poverty Law Center, Lois Lerner (IRS), James Rosen, George Zimmerman/Travon Martin, Ferguson, MLB All-Star Game/Georgia Voting Laws, Freddie Gray, The McClosky's, Nicholas Sandmann, Brett Kavanaugh, Trump-Charlottesville, 2020 Post-Election Riots, Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump Impeachments I & II, Steele Dossier/Russia Collusion Conspiracy, Defund Police, Kyle Rittenhouse, just to name a few.


You wouldn't read a few sentences out of one history book and think you know everything there is to know about history, would you?  Well, take it from this detective who routinely has to sort through a lot of "stuff" - that's exactly what's happening if you're getting all your news from the militant, intolerant, progressive, left-wing-biased, agenda-driven elitists in the so-called national "mainstream media" echo chamber and that goes double if your "news" sources are morning celebrity talk shows or late-night comedians. Is your head surrounded by that much sand?? ;-)  At the very best, you're getting half (or less) of the story (misinformation) and at worst, and most probably, you're getting the wrong/inaccurate story or being intentionally misled (disinformation/propaganda).  And most recently, it has been discovered that several major search engines and most major social media platforms are not only filtering what we see and hear, but suppressing information they think is inappropriate or politically incorrect in an (very successful so far) attempt to manipulate and influence the public's thoughts and opinions and therefore, elections. These are classic tactics used by socialist and communist dictators and totalitarians throughout the decades to exert their control over the people, except now it's even easier for them with the Internet, 21st century technology and people's addiction to smart devices and social media. 

Bottom line: If you only watch the mainstream broadcast media and major cable news, you are not going to know what is TRULY going on in the world.  Don't walk around in a fog of misinformation, disinformation and complete ignorance. In today's world, you MUST be informed, accurately and completely, so be sure to get the whole story and not just a small, biased part. Do your homework. Get informed. Get educated. Get the whole truth!

Don't think you're being misled, lied to or only being told part of the story or that the media isn't biased?  See Free Speech America's CensorTrack for thousands of examples of censorship.  And also consider these articles and studies:
