    Okay.  Let me see if you are paying attention.  You are standing near the Open Pit Iron Mine, a tourist attraction in the Republic area of Marquette County (of the Upper Peninsula), near M-95 and the Michigamme River.  Or you are sitting on the grass near the Old Fence Rider Historical Center Museum at Edmore (Montcalm County of the Lower Peninsula), and it has, for example, barbed wire and Civic War items on display.  Or you are strolling up to the entrance to the Bellaire Historical Museum, which is in Bellaire (of Antrim County of the Lower Peninsula).

    On Sunday, May 9, 2010, I published T.H.A.T. #73 and Michigan Travel Tips #73, both of which have publication dates of May 10, 2010.  I usually, published an edition of Michigan Travel Tips and an edition of T.H.A.T. late on the ninth of each month, but T.H.A.T. #73 and Michigan Travel Tips #73 were published early in the day on May 9, 2010, because around noon, I started out on a trip to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, a trip that would be taken in a Ford F-150 over a week or so.  The first evening was spent at a motel in Richmond, Kentucky, and the next morning, I talked with a husband-and-wife team from Colorado, who had been or did then run a furniture store in Colorado, about what Barack Obama has been doing and is trying to do, and I passed along a card for The Hologlobe Press.  Those two persons from Colorado were quite uninformed about such things as "cap and trade" and the health-care legislation that was passed into law in March 2010, which is a highly defective piece of law.  On Tuesday, May 11, 2010, I was at a motel in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and in the morning, I got into a discussion with a staffer at the motel, and the staffer--a somewhat young man, whose heritage can be traced back to India--was fairly well informed about the bad deeds of Barack Obama, but I passed along the Web site for The Hologlobe Press to him.  On the morning of Wednesday, May 12, 2010, I talked with several persons, but I was not able to shift the subject of conversation to Barack Obama.  One of the persons with whom I spoke on May 12, 2010, in the morning, was from Indiana, and he was a teacher from a two-year college and taught classes related to air conditioning and ventilation, and one thing that he said was that many of the students are really dumb, and he gave an estimate that about ten percent of the persons who pass through his classes seem to end up working in the HVAC field, usually in what he called "mom and pop" businesses (he usually has about thirty students in a class).

    I had a ball in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, or I should say that I found some souvenirs that are balls in Pigeon Forge (the balls are my souvenirs from the city).  One ball is a white plastic ball that is about three inches in diameter, which I found along the Little Pigeon River near 441.  I found a little rubber ball, like one which you might get from a gum-ball machine.  I discovered a soccer ball along the Little Pigeon River near 441 (and near Markhill Road), but I could not get to the ball, because it was on the other side of the river.  If you want to have a nice soccer ball, go looking along Little Pigeon River near 441 (on the north side of the river about one-thousand feet from 441), and take a rope so that you can go down the steep bank or take a pair of waders.

    Advertisement: The commercial in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips urges you to get a copy of Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which is a book written by Mark R. Levin.  This book will help you understand better what Barack Obama --who is purposely hurting the country, even though he is the president of the country--is, but the book is really about enslavers--politicians--who do not believe in the values of The U.S. Constitution and how The U.S. Constitution is designed to limit the power of the government, especially a dictatorship, over the individual (the citizen).  Remember: In the United States of America, it is the individuals who own the government and not the government that owns the citizens, the latter of which is what Barack Obama wants and is pushing for.

    Oh, there was something bad about being at Pigeon River.  When I am in Michigan, there are several radio stations that I can use during the day or evening to hear, for example, The Rush Limbaugh Program, The Sean Hannity Show, or The Mark Levin Show, all of which are "conservative"-based nationally syndicated radio programs.  Where  I go regularly in Michigan, I can use--WJR-AM 760 (Detroit, Michigan), WTMC-AM 580 (Traverse City, Michigan), WLS-AM 890 (Chicago, Illinois), WABC-AM 770 (New York City, New York), and WHAS-AM 840 (Louisville, Kentucky).  Yes, I do use all those stations regularly, and I also will use the Internet to hear WABC-AM sometimes.  When I was in Pigeon River, I could only hear clearly the talk shows that I have been mentioned on WNOX-FM 100.3 (Knoxville, Tennessee).  Notice how I have given you help in finding those talk shows.

    A funny thing happened when I was in Pigeon Forge, and it happened on the morning of Friday, May 14, 2010.  On that morning, a man named Lord Christopher Monckton was at Knoxville, which is about twenty miles or so away from Pigeon Forge, and he was there to help people who were protesting the idea of former Vice President Al Gore's getting an honorary degree from the University of Tennessee on the same day; about a week previously when I was in Michigan, I had contacted Lord Christopher Monckton by email to report that he could find a text version of a recent interview he had done with Frank Beckmann (the host of The Frank Beckmann Show of WJR-AM, 760, Detroit) in my document entitled World Tyranny: Warnings about the Insane Who are Trying to Create a Communist World Country (which can be reached by using this World link).  Lord Christopher Monckton is a climate expert and an anti-manmade-global-warming man, and he was interviewed on the morning show for WNOX-FM, 100.3.  I listened to much of the interview and I now present some of these statements:
    Lord Christopher Monckton said: "...The answer is he [Al Gore] doesn't know any science.  He's making it all up for his personal profit, and he's now about to be--I think, it's not far away now--he's about to face prosecution from at least one state prosecutor...."
    Lord Christopher Monckton also said: "...And why is Al Gore so unwilling to debate this issue?  Why, for instance, when he got his honorary degree today, were instructions given to all the media and everybody else attending that he would not be given, giving any access to the media and he would not be answering any unscripted questions?...."
    At one point during the interview, Lord Christopher Monckton described the University of Tennessee as a "Mickey Mouse University," and, here, I, though a Michiganian and not a Tennessean, defend Lord Monckton.  One of my documents that is available at the Web site of The Hologlobe Press is entitled "CAP AND TRADE" and Carbon Dioxide Facts and Nonsense, and I show through that document that the manmade-global-warming idea (or the manmade-climate-change idea) is a hoax and a lie, and it is being pushed along by Marxists, communists, socialists, and other evil persons, and such persons are pushing the idea along so that they can hurt the citizens of the United States of America, such as the citizens of the country in Tennessee, and it is from the United States of America that the evil people want to extract billions and billions of dollars, such as through "cap-and-trade" schemes.  Any university that would bestow on a liar and crook, such as Al Gore, an honorary Doctorate of Laws and Humane Letters, is a garbage university--or at least the management of it is today.  I support Lord Christopher Monckton!
    By the way, I was able to record a portion one newscast aired on WNOX-FM that played an audio clip of Al Gore on May 14, 2010, and it was a clip of a portion of what he had said when at the University of Tennessee on May 14, 2010: "...and we must rise with the occasion, as our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.  We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we will save our country...."
    Such nonsense and crap that statement from Al Gore is, but that is the way a man who wishes to do harm to Tennessee, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio....

    Promotional announcement: The Landmark Legal Foundation is made up of lawyers, such as Mark R. Levin (of The Mark Levin Show, a nationally syndicated radio show), who fight in court cases against those who do not uphold The U.S. Constitution and the rule of law for the country, and the Landmark Legal Foundation fights for the rights of the individual and against Marxists, communists, and the like.  In this day and age when Barack Obama, who I am convinced has a truly highly ill mind, is going against the rules of the country while pursuing a goal--I believe--to hurt the country and remake it or destroy it,  I believe the Landmark Legal Foundation needs your help desperately; for example, retired lawyers who want to protect the country should consider donating time to helping the Landmark Legal Foundation.  I urge you to avoid making any donations to entities to promote manmade global warming or climate change and make a donation to the Landmark Legal Foundation instead (by the way, you should look into supporting the Heritage Foundation).

    On the trip, I visited several tourist attractions, three of which I will report about here.  Certainly, the biggest place that I was at was the National Museum of the United States Air Force, which is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and which has no admission charge; it is truly a large place that a person can take hours or days to see, since it has many aircraft from the early 1900s to today and many other items related to the U.S. Air Force on display, such as a P-51, which I will mention I learned to fly by watching a video about flying a P-51 while at the Tennessee Museum of Aviation in Sevierville, Tennessee, last fall.  (Okay, no one would want me to fly a P-51 with such little training.)  A little north of Knoxville, Tennessee, is a place call Norris, Tennessee, and at Norris is a tourist attraction called the Museum of Appalachia, and it is like a small village or farm that is made up of houses and buildings from days gone past--they are used to tell of life in the Appalachia region during the 1800s and early 1900s for the most part, and one building contains a hall of fame, which has many exhibits, and there is a barn that has a lot of old tools (by the way, I just happened to meet three persons who have ties to Michigan near that building, one of whom was a retired Michigan State Police Trooper).  The other tourist attraction is located in a place that can be informally called the "Secret City," but, today, it is known as Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and it can be called the "Secret City," because during World War II, it was a place that could not be found on any maps--it was where U-235 was obtained to make the first atomic bomb that was used near the end of World War II; the tourist attraction, there, is the American Museum of Science And Energy, which tells the story of, for instance, the Manhattan Project and the Y-12 National Security Complex of the 1940s and acts as sort of a "science center" (Michiganians, think of what can be found at the New Detroit Science Center, Detroit, or the Impression Five Museum, Lansing).

    While I was in the Pigeon Forge area, I visited a place that might be called a tourist attraction, but it is not really a tourist attraction.  One afternoon, a friend of mine who now lives in Pigeon Forge took me to The Diner, which is a small restaurant in Sevierville that is like a diner of the 1940s or 1950s, and it is a place where the waitresses wear poodle skirts, and it is a place where you can get, for example, elk burgers, and after finishing the meal, we left The Diner, and my host mentioned that the owner of the restaurant was involved in setting up "tea-party" events in the area.  The next day, I returned to The Diner so that I could pass along information about The Hologlobe Press and the documents of mine that exist at the Web site for The Hologlobe Press.  For over an hour, I spoke with Suzy Q, the wife of the man who sets up the tea-party events in the area, and I talked with other staffers, such as Michelle, Lee, Jason, and Amanda.  I told them I would mention that I was at The Diner in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips so that they would be sure it was I who met with them.  Here, I say, "Hello, guys and gals!"

    I also have this information for the guys and gals at The Diner.  On the way, back to Michigan, I ended up at a gas station along I-75 at exit 141 (in Pioneer) known as Stuckey's, which happens to have good fudge (it was the second time, I had been there, having first been there on a trip from Tennessee to Michigan in the fall of 2009), and, this time, I talked with the husband-and-wife owners, the husband of whom was involved in the coal business, and he said that things have been bad because of the government.  Now, I urge you guys and gals at The Diner to see my article entitled Patriots of the U.S.A. and the Counter-Counter Revolution, which can be reached through this Patriots link, since the document has statements made by Bill Bissett before an EPA meeting recently.

    Were you awake?  Are you awake?  Did you see I did not really talk about the Open Pit Iron Mine, a tourist attraction in the Republic area of Marquette County (of the Upper Peninsula), or the Old Fence Rider Historical Center Museum at Edmore (Montcalm County of the Lower Peninsula), or to the Bellaire Historical Museum, which is in Bellaire (of Antrim County of the Lower Peninsula).   The topics were left up in the air.  Sometimes a mind wanders.

    Well, enjoy your safe traveling in Michigan (and enjoy the many other documents at the Web site for The Hologlobe Press).

    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 "enslaver"), 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.)
