Special Important Announcement

    Now I have a document at the website for The Hologlobe Press entitled A COVID-19 Document that Shows the Rottenness of the CDC, Many in the Medical Community, Many in the Media, and All the Democrats, such as Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo, and Joseph Biden, and the document can be reached by using this COVID-19 link.

    I have several times talked about my making a model of 40 Mile Point Lighthouse of the Rogers City area of Michigan (such as in Michigan Travel Tips #206, which can be reached through this Travel #206 link).  Forty Mile Point Lighthouse is yet a "working light" on the Great Lakes, and "working light" means the lighthouse is in operation, unlike Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse, which yet stands in the Ontonagon area of Michigan (the Upper Peninsula).  Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse, having been built in a similar style to that of 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, looks like ruins, having, in essence, only walls or parts of walls standing, which can happen to a building in a bomb attack.  In a way, Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse looks like many buildings of, for example, Mariupol, Ukraine, which were bombed out by Russians since February 21, 2022.  When you are driving in Michigan, you might think about seeing Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse someday--at least through the Internet.  Oh, that lighthouse might remind you of Detroit, Michigan, yet another dead city with many dead buildings, caused by the culture that is socialism and communism and progressivism, specially black socialism and black communism and black progressivism.  In the long run, socialism and communism and progressive lead to death, and while traveling in Michigan, you must remember Vladimir Putin (of Russia) and Joseph Biden (of the United States of America) are the followers and pushers of communism and socialism and progressivism.  By the way, you should be aware Vladimir Putin attacked Ukraine on February 21, 2022, and you should be aware Joseph Biden had left behind billions of dollars worth of U.S. military equipment in Afghanistan on August 31, 2021.  Remember--Joseph Biden would not budge from the date of August 31, 2021, as a withdrawal date from Afghanistan, though there was no reason the withdrawal date could not have been adjusted slightly, such as to let allies come in and get some of the equipment.  Much stuff could have been moved out and maybe given away (such as to NATO allies).  Think about and talk about this while traveling in Michigan--Joseph Biden could have left the equipment behind so that it could not get in the hands of people who might want to use it to, for example, take on Vladimir Putin's military in the future.  I say that, at the very least, Joseph Biden could have heard Vladimir Putin wanted to have Ukraine and have Ukraine under his control, and Joseph Biden--without getting instructions that war might surely be coming from Vladimir Putin--could have decided for himself to help out Vladimir Putin's possible plans by leaving the materials (reducing what U.S. military equipment was in the general Afghanistan region of the world that might be used against Putin's forces if such forces would have to be opposed).  To date, no good reason from Joseph Biden has been given about why Joseph Biden had to leave the military equipment behind in Afghanistan.  I like my reason!  And I say that, really, Joseph Biden has done fluff in relation to Vladimir Putin--for example, instead of helping the Ukrainians get more access to fighter jets, Joseph Biden, on April 6, 2022, made a big deal of putting more sanctions on some Russian people, such as Vladimir Putin's daughters (Katerina Tikhonova and Maria Vorontsova).  Now there are a lot of buildings like Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse in Ukraine, and Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse is not the main destination site for this edition of Michigan Travel Tips.  What is the main destination?  Put on--not "Putin"--your traveling clothes and find out.

    Warning announcement!  Because of incidents at schools for children and incidents at other places for people in general tied to "Sharia" or "Islamic Law" or even the religion/political system known as "Islam," I now regularly have this paragraph as a part of each edition of Michigan Travel Tips.  The governmental system of the United States of America based on The U.S. Constitution and "Sharia" or, informally, Islamic law, are not compatible and cannot co-exist, and one reason is "Sharia" (et cetera) is a political system, in which there is one-party rule, and that one party is basically made up or controlled by religious leaders who base all the ways of their culture or society on "Sharia" or "Islamic Law."  Those who uphold and practice "Sharia" have no tolerance for the existence of Christianity or Buddhism or Hinduism or non-religion, and that is a fact, and "Sharia" is a political system in which women are second-rate human bodies and in which clergy can be involved in determining  business transactions, and there is no "freedom of speech" tied to politics in a society related to "Sharia."  When you travel around Michigan and in other states of the country, watch for signs that rotten people are trying to teach you or family members, especially children, that "Sharia" is good and "Allah" is good and teach you or family members that the United States of America is bad and that, for instance, Christianity and Buddhism and Hinduism are bad, which I have evidence is happening and which is being brought about by people who are clearly working to make "Sharia" a dominant political system in the world (it is a political system as rotten as socialism and fascism and communism are, since it promotes violence and thuggery and coercion, and it promotes killing of non-followers behind the face of religion and a god, Allah).  By the way, a society based on "Sharia" really creates nothing in the long run and does not advance the human society as a whole since it is too busy suppressing the ideas of people and keeping the ideas of the society based on ways of only a few minds up front (the political leaders), whose main purpose is too keep themselves enriched through the work of others, the many--it is a gang-run society really.  Yes, if you run across people pushing the idea that Muslim stuff--particularly the true The Quran and not the translations of The Quran that are faked to hide the true nature of Islam--is better than the U.S. is, especially to little children, go public and make it known to other good people and fight back against it.

    When did the moden-day tourism season involving cars begin?  I do not know.  In 1927, a staffer at 40 Mile Point Lighthouse of the Rogers City area of Presque Isle County of Michigan (the Lower Peninsula) finally got a car; before that, staffers of the lighthouse had horses and buggies to get around and even had bicycles.  That is in indication that regular people--non-rich people--in the rural areas were getting more used to having cars to get around.  Certainly, the 1920s was a time when tourism involving the car was underway.  Today, I know not what place in Michigan can be called the first modern-tourism place or ever "tourist trap" that people might have seen by car.  I do have some history that shows one of the earliest places.  I now go back in time to something that you may not see in Michigan anymore, and what I know about the something is not much, and what I found about the sometime comes from old newspaper articles and postal cards (which were found on eBay) mostly.  At least between September 1942 and 1973, there was a tourism place called the Fort Algonquin Museum in the general St. Ignace area of Mackinac County of the Upper Peninsula, and, actually, based on deductions related to postal-card information, I can say that the place was open in the late 1930s, too.  It seems, by the way, I have given you the heyday period for the place.  In the late 1930s and in the 1940s and the 1950s, the place looked sort of like Fort Michilimackinac of Mackinaw City, Michigan, which is a historical tourist attraction today.  Fort Algonquin was set up and built as a replica of trading posts of, for example, the 1700s and 1800s, having log walls like Fort Michilimackinac, and it had a look-out-like place (such as for sentries) at each corner of the front, and there was at least one main log building with a cedar-shake or cedar-shingle roof within the fort grounds.  In the heyday, a covered wagon with the words "Fort Algonquin" on the cover existed in the front-yard area of the fort, and it seems that the wooden wheels of the covered wagon were painted red, and at least for a while, a 16th-century "carronade"--a cannon-like thing--sat just inside the main entrance to the fort and in front of the main building.  Within the grounds was a flag pole, and, also, there were some big old wooden wheels, called "logging wheels" on the grounds, and the place had a "water wagon," which was a wooden wagon holding on top a water tank (which was painted yellow).  Basically, Fort Algonquin, which--it seems--was built in the 1920s by a guy named Vaughan Norton, was a fun tourist attraction and one of the earliest modern-day tourist attractions in Michigan, and, for one, it sold American Indian-type things.  It looks as if some time in the 1980s, the place was shut down, and it may have been open for a while very late in the 1900s.  I found that on June 3, 2016, there was a grand opening at the location for a new entity related to the Fort Algonquin Museum, and it looks as if there was activity as a tourist attraction at the place till at least 2020 (based on a "facebook" site on the Internet).  In July 2017, it seems, the gift shop was relocated to St. Ignace, and it was and is called Lone Wolf Gifts (1002 North State Street).  Oh, in 2016, the tourist-attraction fort was said to be located at 2900 Mackinac Trail.  Back in the 1940s, the Fort Algonquin Museum was said to be located about four miles north of St. Ignace along US-2.  It seems that, in essence, the road along which the Fort Algonquin Museum would be or was was called US-2 between the late 1920s and the early 1960s, but for a short while in the 1930s (the late 1930s it seems), the place was said to be located along US-2/US-31, but some postal cards only said the place was along US-31.  I have to note that the "US-2" stuff of the middle of the 1900s is confusing, since maps showed a US-2 heading north (toward Sault Ste. Marie) from St. Ignace and a US-2 heading west from St. Ignace, so there were like two "US-2"s.  In the very late 1950s and early 1960s, the interstate freeway system was being set up and made in earnest in the country, such as in Michigan, and in 1960, the first I-75 shield signs were set up in the state.  It looks as if, when I-75 was set up in the Upper Peninsula in the early 1960s or so, there was a name change to roads in the Fort Algonquin Museum area, and the fort-like place was then said to be located along Mackinac Trail.  As you should know, a bunch of tourist attractions and such got closed down temporarily or permanently when COVID-19 hit the country in 2020.  The question is--What is going to happen to the Fort Algonquin place as it is today?  Will anything be open at the location this year?  Incidentally, it looks to me as if, generally speaking, the Fort Algonquin Museum was open during most of the summer tourist seasons--only in the summer tourist seasons--as a rule between the 1920s and 2020.  Incidentally, I did find that, in 1973, the price of admission to the museum was 25 cents.  All I can say is, when you get in the St. Ignace area, you could ask someone, such as at the St. Ignace Welcome Center, if something is open at the location for the old Fort Algonquin Museum.  No matter what answer you get, you might drive by the place, since you should see something at 2900 Mackinac Trail.  And if the something is closed, give a salute to one of the first tourist attractions that people used to see while driving in a car, such as a Model T Ford (a car built from 1908 to 1927) or a Model A Ford (built from 1927 to 1931).

    Enjoy your traveling in Michigan!

    And keep aware of the rotten people in Michigan.

    Stay well!


    P.S. #1: Remember: While you travel in Michigan, remind your children or grandchildren that they should never pledge to be a "servant to Obama" or a servant to any politician or sing the praises of Barack Obama, and to help you remember other matters that you should teach children about bad politicians, such as Barack Obama (who can be described as an "enslave"), see such other documents of mine as Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means (which can be reached through this link: Conservatism) and Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People (which can be reached through this link: Children).  (Note: I first passed along the subject of not being a "servant to Obama" and the like in the publication entitled T.H.A.T. #58, which can be reached through this link: T.H.A.T. #58.)

    P.S. #2: While you travel in Michigan, it is easy to come across evidence of rotten people or to meet rotten people. One really rotten man is Richard Bernstein, who is a new member to the Supreme Court for the State of Michigan.  Evidence of his rottenness can be found in my document entitled Richard Bernstein--A Man Who Hopes You Are Blind to His Rottenness, which can be reached through this Bernstein link.  Yet, on Monday, January 12, 2015, the Detroit Free Press did a story about Richard Bernstein to sell Richard Bernstein as something good, though he is not (Ahern, Louise Knott.  "State's 1st blind justice aims to be inspiration."  Detroit Free Press, 12 January 2014, p. 4A.).  I report--I urge anyone who runs a business and loses a court case in which Richard Bernstein was one of the presiding judges to have the decision thrown out or killed through another case, since Richard Bernstein, while running to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, made it clear that he was going to be biased against businesses if he were to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, and that is a fact.  Richard Bernstein is a rotten man!
