Yup, “NEVER SAY NEVER”
NOTE: This topic deserves far more attention than this short post permits but I have other things that must be done. Problem is, it’s difficult to focus on those other priorities with this EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MATTER gnawing on neurons in the old grey matter, so here it goes –
After the incident with YouTube over some material I posted, (which they determined had violated their “Community Standards” and therefore removed), I was shocked and angry that they could do such a thing and expressed such in later postings.
Although my LAMEs (Lew’s Almost Music Expressions) are amateurish and often times just plain annoying with the redundant tunes and repetitive lyrics with which I invariably become “entangled” (know what I mean? Like the same material being repeated over and over and over and over……again and again and again ….. time and time again…..? lol)
Anyway, I never-the-less spend considerable time (arguably wasted) attempting to create and produce the best I can with the equipment I’m prepared to purchase for these endeavors. Pretty basic stuff: guitar, keyboard (or in my case a “key bored” lol), harmonica, and digital hand held recorder (created repair projects too! https://lakedonpedro.org/?s=digital+recorder+repair) [let’s try that again shall we?
along with whatever other stuff catches my attention that I can throw into the presentation. LAMEs were my personal answers to the frustrations building with the unrestrained fraud and deceit occurring at the LDPCSD (for decades mind you) and the approaching 2015 election which offered a candidate irrevocably connected with the same betrayal to the US CONSTITUTION, RULE OF LAW and all LEGAL US CITIZENS.
ENTER The DIGITAL KNOW NOTHING BAND [DKNB].
“One for all, all in one,
Only one member,
But we’re all having fun”.
Yup, essentially an introduction to this running spoof regarding the various internal perspectives influencing these LAME projects, you know? “I believe this is the best option!” “However on the other hand……”. Ever talk to yourself? Or reprimand yourself for a mistake or accident? (“Dang it! You know better than to leave tools outside if there’s a chance of rain!”) etc
Rarely are any issues simply black and white, but rather, a never ending parade of greys which makes it difficult to plot any course with life providing so many fluid variables. DKNB was assembled. lol
So that’s how it started, but I…. back to the recent removal of a LAME:

My response with traditional bonus spelling and grammatical errors! lol
Following the YouTube instructions I read the guidelines regarding the recent removal of my LAME :BOO HOO PRIVATE WEALTH” posted last year. Finishing their explanation I was provided an opportunity to answer “yes or no” if the information was helpful. I replied NO and was then provided a space for a suggestion on how YouTube could make it better. This was my reply on April 12, 2023:
Perhaps read the US Constitution. I have not intentionally, or accidentally, harmed anyone with my amateurish LAME offerings which merely express my own personal opinion as to what I have come to understand from legitimate news sources reporting on factual matters. Truth that YouTube (and others) initially determined was misinformation/disinformation. (Do you adequate testing? Accepted as fact now, but not when Malone was deplatformed. (Wonder how many people were needlessly harmed or killed by suppressing the information Malone was attempting to provide the public?) Time has, and will, surely continue to reveal the truth that has been suppressed – just as it is unfolding right now as I type this reply to you – day by day – minte by minute. I reviewed your provided examples, and frankly agreed with the rationale in those situations (intentionally attempting to suppress voter turn out by stating as facts things that were clearly not true – absolutely wrong) however, honestly believe in this BOO HOO instance you have overly expanded that noble goal of protecting folks from things clearly injurious to them, into simply suppressing my personal opinion that is contrary yours, or your employer. Even IF I HAD stated that a particular election was IN FACT stolen (which I did not) it is still merely an opinion expressed in a stupid little tune and the First Amendment to the US Constitution permits an individual to state things they honestly believe to be true — even if wrong. Many people speak a great deal about things of which they are completely ignorant. I do not understand how Boo Hoo had any serious potential to harm anyone – with the exception of those who condone and support cheating in elections to obtain their desired goal. (Some might argue YouTube is protecting its followers from the truth not disinformation.) So, essentially, no harm, no foul. Here’s an opinion to which you might also object: It sure appears as though YouTube is over censoring anything and everything ( Boo Hoo had been on the web for a long time without any problems before this recent action – is the truth piling up to the point that anything remotely suggesting corruption must be removed by YouTube?) that might conceivably illuminate the fact that our citizens have had, and are having, their blood-purchased Constitutional Rights, due process of law, and quality of life violated in an effort to protect and conceal the incremental and INTENTIONAL DESTRUCTION of OUR United States of America by domestic and global enemies who also AND THIS IS IMPORTANT actively suppress opposing Free Speech. Seriously, YouTube could conceiveably find itself COMPLETELY on the wrong side as this unrestricted warfare progresses against our country and citizens. Hope you understand my position a little better, but regardless, don’t be on the wrong side of freedom.
My best to you and yours, Lew
The next day received this:

Life is a learning experience for all of us.
My best to you and yours, Lew
PS: Now if YouTube could/would “undo” whatever it did that wiped out the traditional several hundred viewers a day I was experiencing before the first “violation”, that would be great.
