THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE - IT'S FUTURE

America is under seige by progressives, communists and Marxists. They want to eliminate borders while trying to eliminate Trump as well. Now the Electoral College is under attack. An attack that started some years ago with the establishment of the National popular vote movement. I hope American ciizens wake up and soon or it will be all over and we will stop being a Republic and will be turned into a socialist state. The following videos explain the problems that awaits our Country.This video…See More

A Local City Councilor to be Proud Of

In the eleven years I have been following the Ludington City Council, there hasn't really been a time that I can remember where I was 100% proud of a councilor.  There have been times where I have been inspired by a seemingly random act of good judgment or of courage, where a councilor breaks the hive mentality at least for a fraction of a meeting, but then they always slink back to the herd.  I have seen almost all councilors over the years have a shining moment in the sun, unfortunately their…See More

    Migration Update

    The elves of the Ludington Torch were hopeful that we could move from our current Ning 2.0 network to the Ning 3.0 network shortly after our five year anniversary, but we have got news from them back that they are not currently doing any new migrations to the higher platform at this time.  We surmise that there has been problems with the migrations of other Ning sites, because some things do not transfer very well or at all, including videos and group modules. 

    As they continue to…

    Spammertizing

    Over the last couple of months our members have swelled due to an advertising push by those who join, post an ad, provide a link, and possibly send messages to other members advocating some product or action.  While these are basically harmless if you ignore them, the Torch tech wizards cannot fully protect against the intruders.  I have eradicated about two dozen of these infidels, and will make it a practice to do so in the future.

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.

    Now go to the…
