Stormy day here in Missouri again. Otherwise, a great day. Be safe!
Whew! Getting here this morning wasn’t easy, my computer likes to freeze these days. I have to reboot, sometimes multiple times. Frustrating! Maybe it’s the government, trying to censor me! LOL!
Anyway, I like today’s verse! It is a beautiful day in east-central Missouri, high of only 86 today. Not going to waste it, off to play golf! Have a great day everyone!
I’d rather be playing golf, but there is a threat of rain, and the ground is pretty soft now as it is (Missouri). I want to experiment with bait I have only used once before. Had a tip to go from chicken breast to chicken thighs. The thighs are tougher not mushy like the breasts. Stay on the hook better and the fish don’t nibble it off as easily. Too saw a video where they marinade some garlic and garlic marinade. Give it a good luring smell for the channel cats. Not fishing with the whole chicken like this photo (has to be a joke). Just the thighs. Gotta go!!
Hello everyone! I hope someone is listening anyway! I have been thinking of podcasting for quite sometime now. Originally I thought it would be an audio & video podcast, but I like starting out as simple as I can being a rookie caster. Anchor appears to be perfect for doing just that, so for now we’ll just go audio! I don’t know if caster is the right podcasting terminology, I have a lot to learn about this new venture. We learn from our mistakes and I’ve learned much today and it is only 2:27 PM Central Time here in Missouri at this moment the 10th of March 2021 (time of day I am prepping this, when you hear this it will be the 11th). I apologize for any bumps and annoyances we may have along the way, hope you’ll bare with me! Just to take a moment, I chose Anchor, as I said because of the simplicity. Anchor will take episodes (posts) from my WordPress blogging site, and convert them to podcasts, and distribute them to mediums such as Apple Store and Google Play. I have the option of using my own voice or Anchor’s digital voice. I launched a very short episode Wednesday morning as a test run and used the Anchor voice. I will be using my voice for future podcasts. It was a very easy process and if I can do it anyone can. I am not a computer geek by any means. I would strongly consider anyone interested in creating their own podcast to consider using Anchor. Also, it’s FREE! So, lets get to it!
I posted my first blog back in July of 2014……… it’s been nearly seven years now. Michael Brown, Officer Darren Wilson and the City of Ferguson, must be what got me kick started. Most people knew nothing about Ferguson, Missouri. Now most of the world knows something. I call my blogging site the Arlin Report. Most days I post an article I refer to as Arlin Report Thought(s) of the day. Thought(s) of the day can be anything I have on my mind, any topic, possibly a rant, whatever, it does not have to be political or on current events. Arlin Report is for the most part on politics and current events, any event of my choosing. It may be on the St. Louis Cardinals, the Blues, downtown St. Charles events or anything actually. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump kept me busy. I just looked back moments ago, in 2014 Glenn Beck said: “Hillary Clinton would be the next president”. I’ve had a lot to say about Hillary over the last few years. And, she does not go away! We’ll talk about things in the news, reports on all things political/governmental, etc., based on facts and stories that I can confirm. If I can’t, I will say I can not confirm, but it may be a story circulating. I will call a rumor a rumor, like a duck is a duck. I will often share my opinion, but I will say it is my opinion and I could be right or I could be wrong. I call myself a conservative…………… does that make me right? I’d rather be right than left!! Especially in today’s America, today’s world!
In this my first launching of this podcast, I think you should know a little more about me! Podcasting seems to be a bit more personal than posting a blog. Probably because its hearing the voice behind the words. I am a 68 year old male will turn 69 in August. Yes I know I am a man! God gifted me with certain physical features that indicates and should leave no doubt, for me anyway. By the way, I will not engage in ridiculous political correctness here. In fact I may go out and buy Dr. Seuss if he is still on the shelves, so I can read it to my younger grandkids or let them enjoy reading Cat in the Hat. I was born in Lompoc, California in 1952. 1952, sounds like enough time to have built a lot of history. I have not been back to Cali since. I was born on an army base, Camp Cooke. My father was deployed to Korea from there. My mom and I took a train back to Salem, Illinois. When my father returned from Korea, thankfully with all his limbs, we moved to St. Louis. That was how I made my way to Missouri. We lived just above the Bourbeuse River, on a big hill located at a place called the Twin Bridges. No such bridges there now. We moved to St. Clair, MO when I was about 4. From there when I turned 10 we moved 7 miles to Union, MO. I grew up in Union, went to Union High School, and surprising to some, even graduated. I attended East Central College in Union and transferred to Missouri Southern State College (now University), in Joplin in 1972. I played soccer at Missouri Southern and earned a B.A. Degree with a major in Political Science. Should have listened to the wisdom of my father, major in something besides PolySci. My greatest learning experience in Joplin was how to survive a tornado.
I have had a couple of failed marriages, but have 3 wonderful children. They have given me 8 grandkids to enjoy. 5 boys and 3 girls. Youngest girl turns 2 this month. Oldest grandson is 18, looking for a college to attend in Culinary Arts. Currently I enjoy a wonderful relationship with my significant other for about 15 years now. Going to finish things off with her, hopefully a ways down the road yet.
I spent 3 years working in a coal mine in east central Illinois. I gained a lot of valuable experience as a Grievance Committee Chairman in our local union. I could spend hours podcasting about my time in the coal mine and on the industry. We’ll do that someday. Lots of stories there. I spent 3 years on a golf course as an assistant pro, and belonged to the local St. Louis PGA. It was a fun job, but didn’t get out on the course to play as much as you would think. Still played a lot though. I was a purchasing agent for a machine shop a few years and hated it! For about 15 years I was in banking. 3 years as a teller and teller supervisor. Hey I needed a job! Was in the International Banking Department with U.S. Bank for about 12 years. Not as glamorous as it sounds. I have been retired for 3 years, now and spend most of my time playing golf, fishing and working on this blog and podcast.
I was a city alderman for the City of Union, Missouri for 8-1/2 years. I loved doing it. I enjoyed serving and helping the city progress. I was called Annexation Arlin by some, as our city limits expanded. As chairman of the Personnel and Finance Committee, I was instrumental in getting our old swimming pool replaced with a modern facility. The project turned out beautifully after about 1-1/2 years in committee. I also coached youth and adult (player coach) soccer in Union. I was Chairman of the Franklin County Youth Fair for 2 years. That is pretty much the extent of my public service. Oh and I was a Cub and Boy Scout. No sexual harassment in our troops!!!
We are currently living in St. Charles, Missouri; however we are probably closer to St. Peters, Missouri than St. Charles. We love the area, lots of restaurants, close to two of the countries largest rivers, with lots of history. So far statues haven’t been tore down, I haven’t heard of any anyway! Lots of golf courses close driving distances. Quick access to the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues games. Hopefully all the fans can return soon! This country should take up the Nike slogan “Just Do It”!
I hope I haven’t bored you and lost too many of you so far. I just thought for the first podcast you should know more about who this Arlin character is. My name is Arlin Luttrell. I probably should have told you that from the beginning. As you can tell I am no Rush Limbaugh! The most we had in common was being from Missouri, conservatism and a sense of humor,! Our biggest difference, Rush was a Kansas City Royals fan, I am a Cardinal fan! Could have been worse, he could have been a Chicago Cubs fan. I miss hearing Rush’s voice on the radio already.
Tomorrow, I want to talk a bit about some things that are supposedly happening behind the scenes sort of speak, that the Main Stream Media is not addressing. They could be, they just choose not too. Part of that is they want to ignore or deny it exists. The Great Reset, or the Great Awakening! From what I understand from others is there is 2 resets, one from the bad guys and one from the good guys; and the good guys have already won. The bad guys being the Deep State/or the Cabal as they are known internationally. Yes QAnon has been involved in this. Their claims and predictions anyway. I have several sources I have been listening in on regarding these events. They are very credible, for the most part. They do get it wrong sometimes. Sometimes! Child and human trafficking, pedophilia is a huge issue, greater than and more sickening than we could ever have imagined. Satanic rituals are part of it, and this I know to be true! So I hope you can join in tomorrow; I promise it won’t be as boring as today! My short term goal is not to get censored!!
I always welcome your comments and criticism, just be polite please. You can stand firm and adamantly oppose me, just be civil. I don’t want to have to yell back! You can make comments at my blog ArlinReport.com or email me at email@example.com. I will respond when I can. Thank you so much for being here today. Be safe!
I am from Missouri, so this Deep State career (I’ll be nice) “politician” does not represent our state. As you know he is from Kentucky. So, KENTUCKY……. if he were from Missouri, we’d have already began a RECALL petition.
Little Mitch has proven over the last few weeks, he is a crying power grabbing, blame pointing POS. Talk about riding fences, Mitch must have one hell of a raw crotch. Mitch is a fast learner, he plays the political game very well. Mitch is a professional career political scum bag. He knows when to kiss butts, he knows how to blackmail. He knows how to spin ………..and he knows how to spin to jump on board another train. Mitch is the perfect example of a Deep State rat from the other side of isle; and there are lots of those.
Kentucky, recall this reptile!!
I am 68 yrs. of age. I am a nearly (resided in Illinois for 3 years while working in a coal mine, returned to Missouri) lifetime resident of Missouri. I grew up here!
I have never, in my voting life been prouder of a senator or any representative than I am of Senator Josh Hawley. Thank you SENATOR, you represent honesty and integrity and are an example of what a political representative should be!
Savannah Guthrie interviewed Bill Gates on NBC’s TODAY SHOW (Mainstream Media). The heart of the interview was the progress (WHATEVER!) of the vaccine for COVID-19. Savannah of course asked Gates his opinion on President Trump suspending funds to W.H.O (the UN favorite pathetically supported World Health Organization). Gates, as you can guess correctly opposes the suspension. (Bill just add in your own funds if you think W.H.O. is so wonderful). I’m sure he does anyway so he can insert his voice. Gates also injected a statement (dig) that the U.S. was not at the fore-front of scientific development of the vaccine.
Gates on NBC TODAY spreading his agenda of vaccination (ID2020, digital ID though he failed to mention, from what I heard the IDs, which he really wants). The vaccine is just the means for the ID.
GATES SAVING THE WORLD! So he believes.
Bill Gates go back to watching Tiger King with your daughter! Bill put your little sweater on and STAY HOME!
Another thought: Some areas in Missouri are opening back up TODAY. Golf, (have tee time for Monday). Yeah: Franklin County, Missouri taking the lead!!
Bear with me for just a bit, this may be a little longer in text than I have written in quite awhile. Hope you stay with it! 🙂
I had this big ARLIN REPORT head page from the beginning of my blogging experience. I feel like I needed to change the colors and the heading a bit, things have gone kind of dull, or stale. That’s how I felt. I haven’t exactly attracted a lot of new readers. Some, because you saw the same old page day after day for about 3-4 years now. Also, my posts, my messages have given me the same feeling. SOMETIMES change is good. I like the beach scene above, maybe it will have a calming effect, for me and for those interested enough in reading.
I think things have gotten worn out in my writing. I never set out to change the world, but maybe just have a little influence on some. Hopefully a positive influence. By that, just to give a perspective, maybe a different perspective, something to give YOU something to think about. I think an old guy (67) from Missouri, who has been around a bit should be able to do that, to an extent. I’d like to continue on though by being more positive, less critical, more understanding or at least from my part try to be more understanding, even from those I totally do not get, do not understand. After all, I have not experienced all they or you have experienced.
HERE IS MY MOST (I think) IMPORTANT THOUGHT TODAY, (and I’d like to keep this going forward as kind of a theme): If we lived in a world that reaches out to every (any) country, a state, a county/region and a community and we all AGREED on everything all the time; how many cliffs would we fall off? How many train wrecks would we have? How many paths would we take and stay on so long that it only led us to danger or darkness because there was no one to lead us out of those traps; no one gave us an option or alternative routes? We are going to make bad decisions, take the wrong road (even when we have the same destination). We will get off path, sometimes change our direction our course……… We’ll find out what works and what doesn’t. We are capable of adaption. We need to work together, even when we have different perspectives. Putting it all together should be our strength, not our weakness.
We as a nation should face the toughest problems, the toughest issues from different (all) angles TOGETHER. That means listening, speaking up. That also means with patience. Perspective, many perspectives should be sought, not rejected. We will not agree on everything. We won’t. The greatest teacher that once walked this planet told us that. We didn’t listen very well. Look where we are! He saw this coming. We see hate because why? Because we think differently, because your perspective is different than mine? I know that greed, greed for power, corruption and many other multiple things get in the way. So how can we be patient, listen, and share our different ideas, try and understand one another when we have such road blocks from those that only want it their way. We already have the answer……… we need patience, and working together and to be quite honest, that will take great perspective and patience. We will also need adaption, we will need many ideas, alternatives. The most important of which is UNITY.
Being united DOES NOT MEAN WE WILL AGREE ON EVERYTHING, WE WON’T. We’ll have to have more understanding. One of which is we “must” understand that we “won’t understand” everything.
How can he or she think that way? I can not understand how can they possibly think that way! I just confessed to something about myself right there, ‘it is me that does not understand’. I don’t understand because I haven’t listened, maybe been patient enough, or I just never experienced what they have experienced. I haven’t walked in their shoes. I may never understand, but I should understand I won’t always understand. Or if I do understand or begin to, I STILL MAY NOT AGREE. That is okay. I need to (here you go) understand that!
We are the greatest nation in the world. Part of, a great part of, the reason for that is we are the most diverse nation in the world (or one of anyway). But we have become divided, divided because of our diversity, and our diverse different perspectives. We have let corruption and greed lead us. They have divided us. They have taken our strengths as a diversified united nation and split us apart. Diversity is a weapon now. It should be…….but one that keeps us united not divided.
Together, we must weed out those that want to divide us, those that use hate to further divide us. Is it too late? I don’t know. It’s late and it’s getting later. I don’t have all the answers, that’s why I need you, we need each other, to pull us back together. We’ll disagree, you know that right, you know that by now, I hope. We can disagree on things, but stay united. I really believe that. We may go down some wrong roads (you or I didn’t agree on but agreed to go together)…….we have before, but along the way we can keep it together, we can make some adaptions along the way. We can change the course if needed………. but most importantly we can do it together, STAY UNITED. We may have a train wreck here and there……..but we can crash together……get up, get back on track and go a different way. We’ll survive.
Hate and division are tearing us apart. Jesus took 12 men, with different occupations, different ideas, different religious beliefs (if no belief), as diverse as could be. His last commandment to them, “Love one another as I have loved you”. With all those different personalities and diversity “Love one another as I have loved you”. Sent them out into the world to teach just that, (along with He died for our sins, and whoever believes in me shall live in paradise with me…..but that came later, after the resurrection). He knew and taught them they would not agree on everything, especially on policy, administration and legislation. But…….. He instructed them to STAY UNITED…….. even when some would be arrested, persecuted, and executed…… STAY UNITED. Christianity changed the world……. Nero feared it, because it was stronger than his army. Western culture was shaped by Christianity.
We are one nation under God! We are the United States of America…….not the Divided States of America.
I want to understand what I don’t yet understand. It’s early Spring, let’s start the weed and feeding process……..together. We have some weeds that don’t want to go away, they’ve been around too long.
You didn’t seen this on MSM. Of course not, doesn’t line up with liberal Democrats agenda.
