” “Four-Letter Words, the Keys to Success: Home Work, Hard Work, Team Work, Good Luck, Good Lord, and a Good Idea.” Out of money in 1939, he dropped out of college and returned home to work in his brother Glenn’s store in Kannapolis, and later worked for Cannon Mills as an auditor. He volunteered for the army after the attack on Pearl Harbor, serving in North Africa and Italy from 1942 to 1945. Upon his return from the war, Mr. Ketner did everything possible to stay out of the grocery business, working nine jobs he didn’t like before ultimately returning to work for Glenn. When Glenn sold his chain of 25 stores to Winn-Dixie in 1956, Ralph and brother Brown worked briefly for that chain before starting Food Town with former co-worker, Wilson Smith, in 1957.”…Ralph Ketner, founder of Food Lion obituary

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells


I suppose I am as qualified to write this as anyone.

I have been vocal and active in trying to reveal the truth at Citizen Wells since early 2008.

I attended college, taught college, spent most of my life in the real world of business and in recent years mingled with many students, faculty and learned folk.

I am not anti education, real education, and certainly many colleges and courses serve a valuable and necessary function.

However, the notion that a four year degree is essential and that a college education is a guaranteed meal ticket is a myth or if you prefer, a conspiracy theory.

And of course as all of you who are not low information voters know, most modern colleges are brain washing factories and proponents of left leaning ideologies.

Colleges have been self serving entities from the start when itinerant scholars around a thousand years ago began tutoring those of money and title. This morphed into colleges.

The paradigm of mass college attendance only worked for a short while after World War II and was enabled by the GI Bill and a vibrant economy.

We need a vibrant economy.

From Zero Hedge July 3, 2017.

“Colleges Are Preparing Kids For An Economy That No Longer Exists” As They Continue To Scam Parents And Students”

“Is there really anything that takes 4 to 8 years to learn or become an expert in?

Seriously, what a waste of time. Even Ham, the first ape that went into space, only trained for 2 years.

Colleges have convinced nearly everyone that you need a degree to be an effective employee or higher-income adult, but this is just not true.

I can tell you as an employer that I’ve never asked a single person what their grades were and I’ve never asked to see a degree.

The ugly truth is the ones with college degrees usually end up writing SEO articles for $15 an hour and the skilled workers who’ve been writing code as a hobby or editing videos for years on a MAC end up as managers making $75+ per hour.

Young people today who sign up for college are committing to 3 things.

1. Debt: It’s pure insanity that you’re required to pay for information that is freely available to all.

Think about it: a Google search, a 6-week or 6-month course, on the job training… All of these beat the price of college tuition.

Why anyone would borrow money for a college degree makes no sense. Unless the government has screwed your industry with a mandatory college degree in order to get some sort of license, like to practice medicine or law, what exactly is it that you need to pay the college for?

2. Four unproductive years: Ouch! One of the biggest negative effects is that you’re detouring a life for 4 full years or more.

It’s totally unnecessary at this point. When I was 18 years old, I made $55,000 while my peers sat in a classroom learning things that were forgotten before they even left the campus that day.

By the time I was 22 years old, instead of having a degree, I had made $260,000 working at a job for the past four years, I owned two businesses that cash-flowed, and I had over 10 rental properties, not including about $400,000 I had made from flipping homes as a side gig.

3. A workforce that isn’t there: Let’s be honest, colleges are preparing our young people for an economy that no longer exists!”

    From Steve Jobs Commencement Speech:

    “And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents’ savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn’t see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn’t interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.”

    ………….I have long thought that college, and/or universities are NOT for everybody. I chose to pursue a TRADE……..perhaps a formal education NIGHT have helped, but it really isn’t necessary. A skilled tradesman who CREATES with his hands becomes educated over the time he spends in the trade. Some have even been able to out think the most disciplined engineers. I think Frank LLoyd Wright might have been one of them. I chose a trade as a lithographer. It was good to me……..I did not become a billionaire, nor did I become a millionaire, but I earned a COMFORTABLE living. I have DONE most of the things, and accomplished most of the things which I ever wanted to do with my own hard work……. without which would never have come about. Some people look upon those who earn their living with their hands as LOW CLASS people. I say to those who think this way, at least I will die having accomplished something, which includes the ownership, and operation of one of the most up to date commercial lithographic houses in Northern Indiana. Today my son carries on the lithographic tradition of our family.
    If life is only about community position then everybody would be politicians. As time passes some business operators eventually become ensnared in the politics of the community………which sometimes ends his business ventures, as well as his political life. NOT A CERTAIN FUTURE. My life has been a product of my own determination, thought, and initiative. When you set out to accomplish your goals in life………you accomplish them using your God given brain, and God given initiative. Without both you will achieve very little.

  6. It’s the 4th of July……

  10. CitizenWells,
    Noticed that CNN was able to track down the person who made the CNN video that Trump re-tweeted. Then they threatened him and made him apologize. I guess that is “free speech” from the leftists. My question is: How many documents and records are still “missing” on Obama and how many did CNN find this week?

    Did Tax Payers Fund Hillary Digging Up Dirt On Trump?
    By Dick Morris on July 6, 2017

    National ENQUIRER political columnist Dick Morris tells all in an exclusive video that reveals the shocking lawsuit that suggests the FBI is frantic to cover up how agents spent taxpayer dollars to help Hillary Clinton become President of the United States!

    Dick details the money trail leading to the discredited “dossier” on Donald Trump that was put together by British spy Christopher Steele.

    Dick exposes the troubling response to a new lawsuit filed by the group Coalition for Action as they sought answers about the involvement of James Comey in the troubling disaster of a “dirt file” — and reveals the FBI response he calls “as close as we can get” to a confession from the Feds!

  16. oldsailor85

    Bob Strauss…….
    ………Morris could be RIGHT. He has in the past been proven to be correct……….after the fact!

  17. oldsailor85

    Bob Strauss…….
    ………Morris could be RIGHT. He has in the past been proven to be correct……….after the fact!

    My gut tells me that the dems, (Hilliary and the usurper), created the fake dossier to cover for their illegal wiretapping of Trump, problem is, it was all so fake they exposed themselves in the effort to link Trump to Russia, and Hilliary lost, so now they can’t cover up what they did.

    Truly popcorn worthy!

  19. oldsailor85

    ………..there is really only one Obama joke……..Barry Soetoro!=0

  20. Just for fun…. I sent president Trump a message that when he meets with the president of Indonesia tomorrow if he would ask the Indonesian president to get him Little Barry’s school records from the school he went to in Jakarta… heh heh
    BTW… I have not changed my e-mail yet. We bought our forever home and moved out of Cape Girardeau and I have been to busy. Thanks for the instructions…

    AND TODAY…….
    …..Podesta exposes his Russian connection by accident. Now we need a Congressional Russia investigation of John Podesta. Colluded with Hillary Clinton to sell US uranium to Russia. Time to investigate!

  23. this is a good one

  24. oldsailor85

    AND NOW………
    ……DeBlasio joins G-20 protest….” Trump is not the real president of the United States” he rants to the protestors. DeBlasio has finally gone off the DEEP END………….just like Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Waters. It would not surprise if we learned that all ofThe New York institutions FOR THE INSANE have all been secretly alerted to the possibility of the late night arrival of Mr. DeBlasio by emergency helicopter.

    ……..if you want to see a CAPTIVE GORILLA go to the Greg Gutfield show, and cast your scopes on the missing link sitting with it’s hat on backwards.

  26. bob strauss

    Looks like it was all a conspiracy to frame Trump, and his associates.

    My guess is, it was a Podesta, and Hilliary plot.

    They have met their match in Trump, drain the swamp!


    Now this…
    The group that organized the meeting with Trump advisers and the Russian lawyers was the same Democratic group Fusion GPS that was behind the discredited Trump dossier.

    Circa reported:

    The president’s legal team said Saturday they believe the entire meeting may have been part of a larger election-year opposition effort aimed at creating the appearance of improper connections between Trump family members and Russia that also included a now-discredited intelligence dossier produced by a former British intelligence agent named Christopher Steele who worked for a U.S. political firm known as Fusion GPS.

    “We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for President Trump’s legal team. “Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier. ”

    “These developments raise serious issues as to exactly who authorized and participated in any effort by Russian nationals to influence our election in any manner,” Corallo said…

    …(Senator) Grassley has asked the Justice Department to look at all the connections and is seeking information from Fusion GPS on whether opponents of Trump funded the creation of a salacious intelligence dossier to hurt his presidential bid. The FBI has said it has been unable to corroborate many of the allegations in the dossier that involved Trump.

  31. Did Obama violate the Logan Act?

    Obama Meets With South Korean President To Discuss Trump

    Former President Barack Obama seems to be feeling nostalgic for his old job, meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday for 40 minutes.

    The Korea Herald reported that Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship.

    The meeting came after Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference and the Fourth Congress of Indonesian Diaspora in Jakarta. There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.


    The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that details the fine and/or imprisonment of unauthorized citizens who negotiate with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government’s position.[2] The Act was passed following George Logan’s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

    AND NOW……..
    ……….we have RAVING LUNATICS who try to make people believe that they have a switch which will turn off the natural gauss lines of earth’s magnetic field, and take out our entire electrical grid. The only reason why the electrical grid is vulnerable is because our so called distribution designers CAUSED IT TO BE vulnerable………..but it is NOT BECAUSE the natural gauss lines can be shut off. People who believe this need to return to their high school physics classes. The gauss(MAGNETIC FIELD) of earth is PERMANENT, and neither KIM JONG UN or anyone else can turn it off. They only THINK THEY CAN, and want all weak minded people on earth to believe they can. YES they can disrupt electrical power DISTRIBUTION, but not GENERATION. Any such power disruption could be easily circumvented by an EMERGENCY REDUNDANT NON EFFECTED electrical distribution infrastructure. A so called EMP bomb does NOT KILL POWER GENERATION………..but yes it can disrupt power distribution, via overloading circuit breakers, and buss ties. We do NEED a REDUNDANT electrical grid that can be reset quickly. It could be comprised of a multitude of small regional, and local power distribution systems which can be brought online quickly in a power emergency.

  33. oldsailor85

    ………it seems to me that it would largely depend upon WHO SOUGHT OUT WHO……and who asked the questions. On the other hand with respect to the Logan Act it might not matter who sought out who. Perhaps only intent to undermine is the only requirement…….but I have my doubts that anybody would take issue anyway. We live in OHHHHHHHH WELLLLLLLLL times……or maybe better stated……..HO HUM. It is definitely interesting though.

    ……….that any meaningful legal action will EVER be brought against Barry Soetoro. In reality it would bring such tangled, garbled mess into our government functions that it would be virtually impossible to sort it all out in a prosecutable manner in a reasonable length of time. That is primarily why only the top NAZIS were prosecuted at Neurenberg by the Hague, for war crimes. Interestingly the War Crimes trials were deliberately NEVER OFFICIALLY CONCLUDED………with GOOD REASON. There was a few top NAZIS who fled to other countries who were being actively pursued.

    …… appears that our INEPT politicians have chosen to sit back and go OHHHHHHHH WELLLLLLLLLLL, MOVE ON NOTHING TO SEE HERE………BUSINESS AS USUAL. Until our alleged society recovers it’s mental faculties, and it’s belief in the law of the land, there will be continual deterioration of our culture, and zero prosecution of those who have perpetrated horrendous crimes against our country. America has UP TO A POINT become a decadent society.

    Legal action was brought against Obummer

    Here is some pertinent information on a lawsuit brought against former president Obama
    Please read and share…..

    Constitutional attorney Orly Taitz was subjected to harassment and attempted blackmail from former president Barack Obama in a case Taitz et al v Democratic party of MS 12-cv-280.

    This case lasted for 3 years from 2012 till 2015. The case revolved around the fact that the Democratic party of MS had duty to verify legitimacy of the presidential candidate before the election. They received from Taitz information that Obama is using a stolen CT SS 042-68-4425 and fabricated IDs and they covered it up. Evidence of forgery, fraud, fabrication in Obama’s IDs. The evidence was never ultimately examined by the judge and dismissed on other grounds, mostly STANDING and JURISDICTIONAL grounds.

    During the litigation, former president, Barack Obama’s, personal attorney, Scott Tepper, e-mailed Taitz and threatened that Obama will sue her for thousands of dollars if she does not dismiss the law suit, apologize to Obama and say what he wants her to say, namely that Obama has valid IDs. Taitz refused to be blackmailed and refused to lie for Obama. Furthermore, Taitz reported Obama and his attorneys to the presiding judge, Henry Wingate, for harassment and attempted blackmail. Obama is INDEED using a STOLEN CT SSN 042-68-4425 and fabricated IDs. Evidence of Obama’s use of bogus IDs compiled by Attorney Orly Taitz.

    Ultimately, not only the Democratic party of MS, but also former Directors of FBI, Bob Mueller and Jim Comey, as well as AGs, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, as well as former US attorney for MD, Rod Rosenstein, were complicit in the cover up.

    On this basis the public needs to DEMAND that President Trump or AG Sessions appoint a special prosecutor to investigate all of above individuals and that Bob Mueller should be fired as the Special Prosecutor and Rod Rosenstein should be fired or suspended as Deputy AG in light of them being investigated for their complicity in the cover up of Obama’s use of STOLEN SSN and fabricated IDs and Obama’s usurpation of the US presidency with the aid of BOGUS IDs.

    President Trump please investigate and appoint a Special Prosecutor !!

    No more quid pro quo for the Clintons, extortion RICO Foundation collapses!


    AMERICA WINS! Clinton Global Initiative Just Made MIND-BLOWING Announcement…

    The Clintons have officially ran out of influence to peddle, causing the Clinton Foundation to erupt in turmoil.

    Months after her historic election loss to now-President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has announced the end of the Clinton Global Initiative — the primary organization of the Clinton Foundation. (via The Daily Wire)

    The Clintons announced that the last 22 employees of the Clinton Global Initiative will be laid off. This is the second round of layoffs for the failed foundation, after 66 employees were let go late last year.

    Hillary Clinton’s election loss secured the end of the Clinton Global Initiative. The career criminal politician had no power to broker, and thus, no product for her foundation to sell.

    The Clinton Global Initiative was founded in 2005 by former President Bill Clinton and his long time aide, Doug Band. The Initiative was founded to provide cover for the Clinton’s international dealings.

    The Global Initiative was a part of the broader Clinton Foundation. It served the purpose of creating networks between the Clintons and wealthy foreign donors with interests in Washington.

    During the 2016 presidential election, the Clinton Foundation accepted money from despotic Islamic governments including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Morocco.

    Of course, the coffers of the Clinton Foundation ran dry when it was clear that Hillary would lose the election.

    The Clintons denied that their “charity” was a treasonous attempt to monetize their clout in American politics; however, after Hillary’s election defeat many countries ceased their annual donations planned for the Clinton Foundation. If the organization was really about philanthropy than donations would still be rolling in.

    The Australian Government announced earlier this year that they would no longer be partnering with the “scandal-plagued” Clinton Foundation, ending a ten-year partnership that cost Australian taxpayers almost $90 million. The Government of Norway also announced their intentions to pull away from the corrupt organization.

    Unable to sustain themselves without the donations from foreign governments seeking access, the Clinton Global Initiative has been forced to shut down. The Clinton Foundation has no plans to shut down.

    Perhaps the Clinton Global Initiative will open their doors again if Chelsea Clinton manages to win an election.
