BCC (Blind Carbon Copy)

To protect your friends and family from spammers, stalkers, swindlers, and who knows what else, use BCC instead of TO or CC when sending group e-mails. If you have a good quality e-mail service, there should be a TO box, a CC box, and a BCC box or button. If you don't see a BCC box or button, Google it and find out where it is.


You might think that it's not a big deal, but when you send a group e-mail without using BCC, it's usually not just going to be seen by the people you send it to. They will send it to their friends, and they will send it to their friends, and it goes on and on until all of those e-mail addresses get in the hands of 'evil doers.' Then our e-mail boxes get filled with tons of unwanted e-mails including those tricky e-mails designed to get your credit card number and other personal information.


As others have said many times before, treat e-mail addresses like they are private phone numbers. Don't ever give out another person's e-mail address without his or her permission. That includes filling out forms at web sites that encourage you to 'tell a friend.'





Nothing Magical Will Happen

If you get an e-mail claiming if you forward it that some company will help a dying child or donate money or that Microsoft will pay you, don't fall for it even if a friend or relative forwarded the e-mail to you. If you get an e-mail saying that you'll have good luck or that something will happen on your computer screen if you forward it to enough people, don't fall for that either. Same for those e-mails that threaten bad luck if you don't do what they say. It's all crap that should be deleted the moment you get it. Think about it. How could anything good, bad, or magical happen? How would anyone know how many times you sent an e-mail?


Have you ever received an e-mail that said you should forward it to a bunch of people if you love Jesus? Did you delete it immediately? If you didn't, you weren't doing Jesus any favors. Jesus doesn't want you to help criminals and spammers to collect e-mail addresses. If you are a Christian, you should feel deeply offended by e-mails like that. You'd think that Christians would know better, but they are some of the worst offenders. And if that wasn't bad enough, many Christians repeatedly perform these evil deeds even after knowing they are helping the forces of darkness.


No one will be helped, nothing magical will happen, and Jesus won't love you more if you forward these stupid e-mails. The only people you help are the criminals who started these chain letters in the first place. As soon as you get a chain letter, delete it and tell the person who sent it to stop being an idiot. If that person calls you opinionated and tactless, you can tell them that's better than being a clueless half-wit that helps evil people collect e-mail addresses.





How to Copy and Paste

Whenever you feel the need to forward an e-mail, how about just copying the actual message and pasting it inside of a new e-mail? That way it will be free of all e-mail addresses and any extra garbage. Only the main message will be sent. It's amazing how a simple copy and paste can make things so much better for everyone.


Before you pass along the main message of an e-mail, make sure it's not a huge waste of time for the people you're sending it to. Many forwarded e-mails are chain letters, urban legends, made-up alarmist info, and similar stuff. Before you pass along some stupid message that begs people to forward it to everyone they know, take a couple of minutes to make sure it's real (it's probably not). Here are a few web sites where you can check on this junk before you send it so you won't look like a fool:

Most of that junk e-mail is created by spammers (in disguise) who ask you to forward the e-mail to as many people as possible because the spammer knows that most people are idiots and he will eventually collect that multi-forwarded e-mail full of nice juicy e-mail addresses.


It is your responsibility to protect your family and friends. It's up to you to spread the word about BCC and forwarding and to be a good example. Even if everyone you know is too stupid or lazy to do the right thing, that doesn't mean you have to be the same way. You can help to enlighten them. If you are too scared or uptight to say anything yourself, you can at least send offenders here and let this page speak for you.




In Case You Didn’t Know


B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.

Hydrofracking = Bad

Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.



Hydroxychloroquine = Good

Although some people with certain conditions may not be able to take it, hydroxychloroquine is a cheap drug that has been prescribed by doctors since the 1950s and it seems to be helping many people who have COVID-19 when administered early enough. (Hydroxychloroquine is also supposedly safe and tolerable as an anti-cancer therapy.) Seems like most news sources are going out of their way to make it sound like hydroxychloroquine is the most dangerous drug in the world, but they also make it sound like it’s the greatest drug in the world for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis patients. They basically say that using hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 patients would be taking that great and wonderful drug away from the other patients who need it. So which is it? Is hydroxychloroquine deadly or divine?


If you believe that a couple of Trump supporters took the medicine hydroxychloroquine and it’s President Trumps fault that the husband died, you’ve been duped. Watch this video. The wife was a prolific Democratic donor, it seems she hated her husband, she used fish tank cleaner (not the medicine hydroxychloroquine), and now she is the subject of a homicide investigation.


Some people claim that the reason so many news sources want to keep doctors from using hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 is that they are desperate to keep everyone afraid to leave their homes since mail-in voting will make voter fraud much easier (the only way they could beat Trump). Others claim that the rabid anti-hydroxychloroquine campaign was to make way for the expensive new drug called remdesivir. Drug companies can’t make much money with old generic drugs, so new drugs must be pushed. Both claims could be true since remdesivir supposedly isn’t as good as hydroxychloroquine.


According to Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, hydroxychloroquine does four things: (1) stops viral entry, (2) stops viral RNA replication, (3) stops viral particle assembly, and (4) stops cytokine storm. Remdesivir only stops viral RNA replication. Did you get that? Hydroxychloroquine does four things and remdesivir only does one. The doctor also said that nearly 70 percent of the people who took remdesivir had some type of adverse effect. If all of that is true and the more anemic medicine ends up being used by most doctors thanks to the smear campaign against hydroxychloroquine, the average American will beg to vote from home.


In case you didn’t know, Patrick Howley reported that one of the authors of the ‘study’ saying that hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work at VA hospitals got a research grant from Gilead (the company that makes remdesivir). Does that seem a little fishy to you?


Bryan Fischer said in an article that Dr. Fauci has known since 2005 that chloroquine is an effective inhibitor of coronaviruses. You might also want to check out the following three links:

Sequential CQ / HCQ Research Papers and Reports


“The Disruptive Physician” had this to say at Twitter: “Meanwhile, regular doctors like me are using HCQ + Azithromycin and Zinc to good effect. One nursing home in NE Ohio had 30 cases - started everyone on HCQ, no deaths. Quick recovery. Why would the MSM hide this? Why would twitter block people who question the WHO?” You might also want to check out Dr. Stephen Smith, Dr. Ramin Oskoui and Dr. Yvette Lozano.


In case you’re interested, here are a few COVID-19 patients who appear to claim that hydroxychloroquine saved their lives: elderly couple Louis Amen and Dolores Amen, Daniel Dae Kim, Rio Giardinieri, John McConnell, Margaret Novins, Jim Santilli, Billy Saracino, and Karen Whitsett (Democratic member of the Michigan House of Representatives).
