A MIND FOREVER VOYAGING THROUGH STRANGE SEAS OF THOUGHT, ALONE


This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.



The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

A DAY OFF

Well, looking at a three day weekend, how do I spend  an extra day?  I know!   I'll get high and watch Pink Panther cartoons all day!

Sigh, once upon a time I would have thought that a good idea and a day well spent.  When did I grow up?

Speaking of children and their urges, it just keeps getting funnier.

First this whole work guys and gals and behavior.  Let's start with Roy Moore - I have not made up my mind on this one.  Historically, I believe the women, sorry but it's true.  I know not every guy who's been accused by a woman is/was guilty and it creates an unfair burden on the guy to prove he did not do something eons ago.  So in Moore's case, suddenly a gaggle of geese come forward right before the special election for the senate: not during the primary, not during his run for governor, not during his run for state supreme court, etc.  Why?  Has the current mood and news stories empowered these women to have the courage now to step forward?  A better chance of being believed?  Well, could be, but then again, if that were the case, how come it is ONLY Moore?  There should be several/many women about many different men in politics.  So that has me scratching what is left of my hair and then we find out that a woman comes forward with Gloria Allwoodhead and I don't know about you, my imaginary reader(s) but I am of the opinion that when she is involved it's probably best to conclude the opposing side is probably the one telling the truth.  So anyways they have this yearbook where ol' dumb ass 30 something Roy signs a high school yearbook with his signature and title.

'Cept, when he knew her and was suppose to be signing the year book, that was not his title.  It was, however, his title in 1999 when he was the judge in a divorce case that was decided in the hubby's favor, and lo an behold, guess who the woman was?  Yep, very same one saying she was sexually messed with as a teenager with Roy Moore, who if both are true didn't mind the guy she dated when she was a teenager presiding over her divorce and when she ends up losing did not come out and announce the verdict should be tossed because she was involved with the judge when she was just a small lass.

So, did he really sign her yearbook back then with letters after his name that were not true, or did they take that signature off the divorce paperwork when that was his title, and super impose it on the yearbook?  I'm sure nobody is going to get the chance to check the yearbook to verify the signature.

And if she is lying in a very organized way then are the other women?  This is where the yarn starts getting tangled in the diorama in my head.  I guess it would be best to just go ahead and vote for Moore if you were planning to before all this, he can always be tarred, feathered and hung later on.  But if he drops or loses and later we find this was all a political lie to destroy the man, not much you can do about it then.

And if there is an organized effort that successfully derails Moore, guess what will be coming up in the future?  If it worked once.....

After all, all those members of the media never get in trouble for lying and reporting false stories.  They are just following procedures.

Now, let me change the subject for a moment and ask this, what do all the Hollywood men being accused of all these sexual advances have in common.  Well, let's see, they are men, have lots of money and power, and, oh yea, they all voted for Bill Clinton, twice.

Let's go get Peabody and Sherman and take a trip to the WayBack Machine and go back to the 90's.  Back then we had this really cool baby boomer as president, he played the sax, ate McDonalds and everybody loved him.  Okay, that is not totally true, after all, he only got 43% of the vote in 92 and 49% in 96 thanks to Ross Perot running in both elections to split the republican vote and if Perot had not been in the race in 92 Bill Clinton would have lost to GHWB the 1st and history would be so different today.

Next time you talk to a stupid liberal type, wait, is that redundant, point out that no Clinton running for president ever got to 50% of the vote, make them look it up and watch them wet themselves.  Then again, don't think GW the 2nd ever got 50% either.   Obama did both times, another example of how the majority just means most of the people are wrong.

But the liberals of the world loved Bill Clinton, pro abortion, pro gays, pro everything every college professor would approve of in a president..  So when a woman stepped forward, Gennifer Flowers and talked about a long term affair with the jazzman, they said so what, she's a slut.  And when Paula Jones came out with her story of 'hey baby, kiss it', the liberals, talking heads and college professors said, 'so what, she's trailer trash'.  And when Juanita Broaderick came out and said then governor of Arkansas raped her, the liberal pencil necks said ' she's a liar, don't believe her, she wants to write a book or something'.  And when news broke on Monica, the liberals said 'she's a liar, she's a fat slut, took advantage of him, wants to write a book' blah blah blah.  Then the blue dress shows up with seed stains and then the liberal media really came out blaring against the woman as being psycho.

That is why I always kind of admired Lewinsky, how she survived that and didn't end up dead or screwed up to the max is an amazing story of courage and intestinal fortitude.  How did she answer the question "so, tell me about your last job.  what did you do?  what made you stand out as a presidential intern?"

So what?  It does not affect his job etc etc etc.  They made every excuse in the book to cover Bill Clinton's ass.   Of course, later it would be known that many of these talking heads were a little on the dinky side of life, cheating on their own spouses, chasing the babes around the office themselves so they might have had something of a skewed opinion for personal self serving reasons but in the end, we should not pay attention to any of this because his work and personal life are separate, blah blah blah they blathered.

And, now this is where it really starts splitting my side, many of these today outraged Hollywood women could not get enough of Bill Clinton when he was president.  And to all of them and whoever is still reading this, WHAT THE HELL DID YOU THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN???

You, those Hollywood Streeps, Chers, and other chicks of plastic surgeons, YOU sent the message that if you support all the right things, you can play with and show us your Uncle Willy all you want.  It was so cute!  You not only didn't condemn the behavior, you approved of it, made jokes about it, made it cool to cheat on wife and get BJ's from girls that weren't born yet when you were in grad school and taking those long walks thru Harlem on layovers at the airport.

You adored Clinton, you heaped awards on Clinton and Polanski.  And now you are upset?

And so here we are today.  Suddenly all those men who watch Bill Clinton get away with it all and spent the last 20 years giving money and speaking out for all the right liberal issues suddenly had the carpet pulled out from under their feet and are now losing everything and don't understand why.  They are not regretful for their behavior, they are confused at why everyone is making a bid deal out of it now.

Leading us to reading how commentators are frowning their brows and asking out loud if they were now wrong about Bill Clinton.

Duh, little late and a dollar short capped toothed wonders.

Of course you were wrong.  And now this is where you watch the yarn.  If the media have been an unbiased institution back in the 1990's and gone the Nixon route on Clinton, then the right wing media never would have formed, there would have been no market vacuum for a Fox News, Briebart, Drudge, Infowars.  If the media had forced Clinton out for his behavior the way it forced Nixon out, then there would have been no Hillary.  And probably no GB the 2nd.  No Obama.  I mean the whole history of life the last 30 years would be totally different.  Better?  In many ways.  Worse, probably in some for sure.  But absolutely different.

But the point is this: the medias being Clinton's pet and supporting him when he was accused of rapes, sexual assaults, sexual harassment, etc etc etc was a CAUSE of such a befuddle messy timeline and now they want to try to appear deep and wonder aloud "maybe we were wrong?".

Sorry Charlie, the majority of Americans knew back then it was wrong, the media had it wrong, and don't really care if you soul search today.

I should have gone with the getting high and watching Pink Panther cartoons.  Growing up has it's limitations.

Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me

And it stands in the gray of the city
No time for pity for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain
Around me

Is there a reason for today?
Is there a reason for today?
Do you remember?

I can hear all the cries of the city
No time for pity for a growing tree

GOTTA STEP CAREFULLY IN THIS POST

Going to do something I said I wouldn't do, and technically can't do, but going to do anyways.

So here we go again.  Some mass killer owns an iPhone and the feds can't get into it.

Saw an article and this is what set me off, the statement by the DOJ person who said "all reasonable people agree" that the feds should have a backdoor access to these phones.

As soon as I see "all reasonable" I am pretty sure the person saying it actually has no valid way of arguing for what he or she wants.

Al Gore does this all the time.  He will say "all reasonable" or "all respected scientists" to frame whatever he is about to say that if you disagree, you are no reasonable or respected.  It's a classic frame and it lacks any logical foundation and is a sure sign that whatever is being said is just wrong.

So, DOJ, riddle me this.  Let's say you could get into the phone.  No, let's take a step back, let's say you could access any phone at any time remotely, and answer me this:  would the DOJ have prevented this mass murder?

No.

And if you could get into the phone, what could you discover that would bring back one life?

Nothing.

So why do you need into the phone?

They really don't.  But they want you, the people, to think they should.  Because if you give them access to this phone in this case, then the slippery slope starts and next thing you know anyone will be stopped on the street and their data collected.

Don't tell me slippery slope is a logical fallacy, the cops have been doing this for years when they pull over people and they can download the data from the phone, well, not apple phones, but the point is they are already doing it.  AND, if you use your fingerprint on an Apple device or I assume the new Face ID, guess what, the cops, the courts have ruled, can make you open the iPhone.  What they cannot do, courts have said, is make you tell them your passcode.

It's funny this is hitting the news today, the same day wikileaks released more of those CIA/NSA hacks that someone hacked from the government and stole, now giving millions of hackers across the planet access to the coolest hacking software our government could develop.

Imagine if Apple had created a hack for the feds two years ago in another terrorist/mass murder case in CA; that hack would have been, well, hacked and now free for anyone to hack anyone's iPhone.

So back to the DOJ, what they want is access to apple devices and they use the big news cases to say "any reasonable person understands this guys information should not be private" and people nod their heads because 99% of people are no longer capable of thinking for more than 6 minutes before their trained brains need a commercial interruption.

Look at the argument this way.  Moses is walking around the desert and runs into Satan.  Now put Moses at the 100 on the scale and Satan at zero.  After they argue thru the day, thru the night and thru the next day, they finally come to an agreement, Moses moves from 100 to 95 and Satan moves from 0 to 95.

Who just won?  If you say Moses, you are wrong.  Satan won.  Because once you move a person from an absolute, Moses at 100, you only have to move him off that point and after that, it's much oh so much easier to move him further and further down till one day Moses is at 10 and scratching his head wondering what happened, how did he get this far from the path.

And that happens to all of us as we go thru life, in case you were wondering where life went wrong, go back and remember the moment you moved from your absolute stance.

Well that is what the government is doing, trying to move Apple from an absolute position to just let them get into the phones of mass murders and the day Apple relents is the end of Apple as we know it.  Because tomorrow it will be for this person, then another person and the next thing you know your phone will be opened because you didn't recycle your garbage correctly.  Or are still driving a car using gasoline.

See, I'll repeat for my new imaginary readers.  Slippery slope is currently considered a logical fallacy, but should not be; the slippery slope is the sudden understanding that you are being moved from A to B to C because someone wants you at the G spot.

Wait, better reword that, let's say the M spot.

And anyone and everyone denies such conspiracies exist!

So here is the problem.  Every college graduate that took a course in psych, sociology, etc learned the term Shaping.  Shaping is when you don't try to move your rat thru the maze all at once, you break it down into smaller steps, little by little until you get the rat to do what you want.  Successive approximations to the target behavior is the definition of shaping - which is also the definition of slippery slope.  The difference?  If you are running the experiment, it's called shaping.  If you are the rat, the one being manipulated, it's called a slippery slope.

And that is what the government is attempting to do, shape us, to get us to think that the government has the right to anyones data on their phones, pads, computers, etc.  Getting onto this guys phone in Texas is not going to save anyone's life.

See, here is what we know.  THE GUY WAS NUTS.  He beat his wife, he beat his infant kid.  He got kicked out of the Air Force for these types of things and other events.  He bought animals on craigslist to use as target practice.  He escaped a mental institution.

So why was he able to buy a gun?   This is beautiful.  Because 3 times A GOVERNMENT AGENCY FAILED TO PROPERLY NOTIFY  ANOTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY ABOUT THIS GUY AND SO HE WAS ABLE TO PASS THE FBI BACKGROUND CHECKS.

Oops.  Our tax dollars at work.

That is why this nut job was able to buy the guns, because repeated failures by the very same government that wants Apple to provide them the means to get into any iPhone.  So if you really want to know who is at fault - it's the federal governments fault this happened.  Other than the shooter himself, it's all on the federal government.  Which now makes twice the federal government has been involved in mass killings at a church, if you want to count Waco.  And I do.

My attitude?  Everyone in the country should dump whatever they are using and buy an iPhone, don't use the fingerprint or face id, put in an 8 digit passcode, memorize it, and stop the government from being able to access anyone's phones for good.  Not that it would be self serving for me to suggest that solution.

And by the way, while on the subject of manipulation, did you read the interview of one of Facebooks original founders?  It discussed how they use behavior mod in the design of facebook for the purpose of addicting the user, knowingly they designed software to brainwash you, manipulate you, addict you.

Told you Facebook, Instagram etc were evil.  Too bad all my readers are imaginary.

And I should know by now, I should know by now
I hear them call it out all around
Oh, they go ah, there's nothing to believe in
Hear them ah, just daydreams, deceiving
They'll just let you down

So what if you reached the age of reason
Only to find there was no reprieve?
Would you still be a man for all seasons?
Or would you just disbelieve?

We measure our gains out in luck and coincidence
Lanterns to turn back the night
And put our defeats down to chance or experience
And try once again for the light

Some wait for the waters of fortune to cover them
Some just see the tides of ill chance rushing over them
Some call on Jehovah, some cry out to Allah
Some wait for the boats that still row to Valhalla

While you try to accept what fates are unfolding
While some say they're sure where the blame should be falling
You look 'round for maybe a chance of forestalling
But too soon it's over and done
And the man for all seasons is lost behind the sun

I KID THEE NOT....


Read an article yesterday about the British economy.  Seems with the exit of the EU, many foreigners who've been living and working in Britain that past 10 or 15 years are now moving back to mainland Europe where they will stay in the EU.

Now this is choice, what is happening now in Britain is wages are rising, salaries, hourly rates across the board are rising and Brits who've been out of work for years are able to go back to work at better wages because all the foreign workers leaving the country.

Gee....

THE ZOMBIE PARTY IS IN FULL SWING

Someone once defined zombies as people who walk around aimlessly, with glazed over eyes, never thinking for themselves, following orders and I thought SHAZAM! democrats are the party of the zombies!

Tuesday night, democrats are crowing over their landslide.  Except, one small problem.  First New Jersey.  It voted in a democrat governor.  So what, they almost always have a democrat for governor, two democrats for senators, a state government run by democrats. Democrats run that state the way they run Chicago.  New Jersey democrats winning back the governors mansion is not really a story.  Chris Christy being elected governor in the first place is amazing.  Getting re elected was a miracle.  But the beached whale leaving office in scandal and the democrats taking it back is not special.

And Virginia, well, that has become a democrat party state.  Shocking would  have been a republican winning there again.  The urban democrats outnumber the rural area population and it will take a serious scandal or collapse for republicans to take back Virginia.  Look at the last time a republican candidate carried Virginia.  Virginia is no longer part of the south, it's now part of the NE corridor of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Mass and Rhode Island.  All Zombies all the time.

I think the test is Alabama Senate race with Roy Moore.  And that got interesting today with several women coming forward saying nearly 40 years ago when he was in his early thirties he had a taste for young underage girls.  True?  Who knows.  Could all be dirty politics.  Could all be true too, that's the nice thing about people who run for offices, nothing would surprise me.

Speaking of which, Donna Brazille's new book certainly shows the nuts were right last fall.  First, her revelations surrounding Seth Rich being murdered and how she was afraid for her life?  And even more important, well, except to Seth Rich, is they were considering replacing Hillary on the ticket for health reasons in September, she really did have to end speeches due to coughing fits and she really did badly stumble on 9/11 and she really was in bad shape and all the 'alt right' sites were correct.

But, and this is great, she talks how the media helped cover it all up!  CNNBABCBSNYLATWP etc all worked with the DNC to cover up Hillary's health problems.

You just gotta love it.  And sorry, I hit post instead of save last night when I was not finished.

Good to see that Mel Gibson is starting to get back to work in Hollywood, I guess after seeing the number of pedophiles molesting young boys, slimy guys using the naked back rub ploy to get hot young wanna be actresses to roll in the hay, I just guess being an ugly drunk that spouts hatred towards jews could become the new cool in Hollywood.  "Sorry Mel, we don't care you are an ugly drunk, we're just happy to have a star that doesn't molest the children or corn hole the extras on the set!"

Which brings us to today's great philosophical question:  If Kevin Spacey were  being accused of molesting/raping/whatever only Hebrew men, would he be more popular in our age of anti semitism?

That funny question is deeper than I can appreciate, I suspect.

And let's not forget the king of all this perversion, a man whom Hollywood has known for decades for his taste for underage girls, Roman Polanski.  Good ol' Roman, stuck over in Europe, unable to travel to the US lest he be picked up for one of those hot tub drug booze things with a 15 year old girl and, this is where it's great, look at all these outraged actors and actresses the past few weeks, their shock that this kind of thing has been going on, and go back and google all the wonderful things they've said about Roman Polanski over the last 30 years and how unfair it is that Roman can't come back to the states to pick up this Oscar for we love him so much.

Why are Henry and Kevin and others now lepers in the movie industry that has for 30 years adored Roman Polanski?  That is deeper than anyone in Hollywood can appreciate, I suspect.


And since this week is the 50th anniversary of the release of Days of Future Past by the Moody Blues

Dawn is a feeling
A beautiful ceiling
The smell of grass
Just makes you pass
Into a dream

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

You look around you
Things they astound you
So breathe in deep
You're not asleep
Open your mind

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

Do you understand
That all over this land
There's a feeling
In minds far and near
Things are becoming clear
With a meaning

Now that you're knowing
Pleasure starts flowing
It's true life flies
Faster than eyes
Could ever see

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

SO A PRIEST, A HOLLYWOOD ACTOR AND A MEMBER OF CONGRESS GO TO A CHUCKY CHEESE.....

Oh my, oh my, for the cynical politically incorrect smart ass, has there ever been a better time to be alive?

Except for all the jokes I can make up, like "This Fall, NBC brings you the best in police dramas, Kevin Spacey and Andy Dick star as undercover gay cops in Fudgepacker and Facelicks" but the problem is reality can always find something funnier than what I can make up.

The shock of many that Spacey is gay?  Seriously, wasn't there a story about 10 or 15 years ago of him being mugged outside a public restroom in London at 3am?  Duh.

How about a member of Congress has come out, no, not that kind of come out, and insisted that congress needs to investigate pedophiles in Hollywood.  Yea, that sounds like a plan, I'm sure they will get to the bottom of something but it won't be truth.  Congress should team up with the catholic priesthood to investigate pedophiles in Hollywood.  Sounds like a can't miss investigation.

Here is something that is bothering me though, well besides all the rape, molestation, etc.  Where are the child actors/actresses of the 90's?  The silence from Alyssa Milano or Christina Applegate for example?  There are two young actresses that went thru their teen years on TV and blossomed into two of the most attractive women ever produced and not a peep.  Crap, Milano is always one of those tweeting has beens in Hollywood anti Trump pro whatever is immoral twitters of stupidity but strangely silent now.  Wonder why.

And no, never watched the show Milano was in, did see some episodes of Married with Children - loved the episode where Applegate character graduates from high school and is proudly holding up her diploma in the living room then hands it to her mom and says "well, read it to me!!!".

That was funny.

This just in, Dustin Hoffman is apparently something of a creep, but now we have reached the point the Catholic Church reached when it comes out a priest is molesting underage girls and people think, well, at least it was girls.  So all the babes Dustin groped will apparently be taking a back seat now and told to shut up, at least Dustin was straight.

So what is my point this morning?  To make fun of gays?  Nope.  To make fun of pedophilia?  Nope.  To make fun of the rich and powerful using their positions to abuse children and teenagers?  Nope.

The point of all of this is the slide of our society into decadence and immorality that is now so widespread it has engulfed every facet of life in America today.  And we have brainwashed generations into a position that anyone who points out the perversion, anyone who stands up and says God is going to judge us as a nation is ridiculed by the same actors, writers, news people, politicians, etc that are the perverts.

From boardrooms to oval offices to our homes via TV, we have allowed rich powerful people to have their ways for years.  Last month, Sally Quinn, the below average reporter chick who married Ben Bradly and ran the Washington Post and wrote the religion column for years writes a book where she basically comes out as a witch of some sort and thinks three times she cursed some people who later died and literally believes she is some major witch power.  This woman ran the Washington DC social scene for 30 or 40 years, who was critical of Christianity for decades in her column, turns out to be a major witch and you don't think she has a big following in DC?

And hardly an eyebrow is raised at the news.

Wiccans and such is the fastest growing religion in America today.  Our parents and grandparents who grew up dragging the Baby boomers to churches and those BB who later rejected such religious behavior have raised X's and Mil's with no God and now here we are.

I'm suppose to be praying to God to have mercy on our nation but seriously am having a difficult time asking 'Why?'.  Why should I be praying to spare a nation of perversion, a nation that a select few are now robbing the middle class of all their earnings to support their perversions.

Oh yea, and prince William over there in England is taking after his dad and announced there are too many people on the planet, the William with two kids and another baking in the oven.  Which means what he is really saying isn't there are too many people, just too many of the wrong kind of people, you know, commoners.  There are never enough inbred wealthy snobs who never have to work a day in their life and live off the backs of the people 'beneath' them.

Baking in the oven is slang for wife pregnant, when talking about the rich and powerful, I don't assume there are not a few actually baking babies in the oven.  There are rumors of blood doping with young kids to help slow down aging and I can almost see a farm of young kids being drained of blood to supply the members of congress, the boardrooms, the Hollywood elite with fresh young blood to keep them looking young.

Laugh now, just wait.

What people never seem to understand or learn, is that when a pendulum swings, it always swings back.  Look at the roaring 20's, a time of easy money, loose morals, good times and when it swung back we had 15 years of depressions, a world war and then about 20 years of a moral society, up to the JFK killing then it started swinging back to the left and has pretty much had a free run since the late 60's to today.

You know what is fun, just think back to the 1990's and Bill Clinton and how many of these people in the news today were supporters of Clinton, who's list of women he sexually abused is longer than my, um, arm.   Bill Clinton made whipping out Uncle Willy cool, everyone of these people in the news today were supporters of Bill Clinton - there's a point there, not sure what, but it's important.

Look, let me be clear here about something.  I could care less if Spacey or anyone is gay.  It's their life.  What bothers me is when the gay community insists that I think like they do, sorry, not going to happen.  It's a sin.  Live with it if you want, but it is a sin in the Bible.  So is adultery, so is sex outside of marriage, so is stealing, lying, murder and so on.  I'm not a better person in the eyes of God than Spacey because I'm straight and he's not, I've got more than enough sinning in my life to keep God busy and me crying on judgement day.

What I hate, what I despise, is a person, straight or gay, who forces themselves on underage boys or girls.  What I hate, what I despise, are the rich and powerful who think they can run over people's lives and continually get away with it.

And that is why I am enjoying this so much.

There are a group of rich and powerful men who have for decades used their position of power and influence to force women, men, boys and girls to satisfy their immorality and thought they were going to get away with it and now the house of cards, no pun intended, is falling and they are going to be ruined and I love it.

From the boardrooms to the Hollywood sets to Washington DC, let the mighty perverts be exposed.  Let the mighty perverts fall.  The truth be told though the heavens be damned, though in this case it might better read, May the truth be exposed and Hell be damned.  Thank you God for answering this prayer and continuing to expose these people.

God will declare me a sinner on judgment day, for that I am sure.  I pray His only begotten Son will step forward and say my sins are covered.  Don't misunderstand this.  When judgement comes on the USA, it will be huge, it will be ugly, it will be unimaginable.  And I probably will not survive what is coming, but that is fair, for what have I done about any of this?  Other than write a blog no one reads, a lone voice with imaginary readers will not be a defense on the day of reckoning.

But I am not going to be embarrassed by enjoying watching the mighty fall.  I might even make popcorn to watch the show.

The great ones never last
They burn out way too fast
The great ones they never learn
They just tumble when it's their turn

"Eat Cake!" said Miss Marie
"Heads will roll if ya stick with me!"
What's to do at Waterloo?
Stand back and enjoy the view

The price of sin, the wage of war
Don't matter we come back for more
'Cause every Judas has his price
Every angel has their vise

Oh, how the mighty have fallen
Watch the mountains crumble to the sea
Oh, how the mighty have fallen
Ya make one false move...you're history

HEY AMAZON, HERE IS A GREAT IDEA


Hey Amazon, I have an idea for your new location.

West Virginia.

I don't know how many of my imaginary readers have ever been to WV, but it can be one of the most beautiful states in the union, the Appalachians, the rivers and lakes.  It's really a beautiful part of the country as long as you don't stumble upon strip mining, mountain top chopping, or the occasional old mines to fall into.

And it's dirt poor.

Stay with me on this Bozo

Morgantown would be a great place.  University town, airport, less than 100 miles to Pittsburg with Pitt and Melon, couple of hours to Warton or Penn State.

Think what 50,000 Amazon jobs would be for that state?  Housing would be cheap, taxes low.
They would be kissing your feet if you put headquarters there.

Airport not big enough?  No problem, I'm sure they could put in a couple of more runways for you, no worries.  They will even name it Amazon International Airport for you.

And, I think I got this right, been a long time since I read it.  Take all those jobs, do average salary for them, and for every 5 employees, there will be 2 higher paying jobs created, lawyers, doctors etc.

And for every employee, two jobs of equal or lesser will be created.  So we are not talking about 50K jobs, we are talking over 170,000 jobs in the state.  Amazon could turn one of the worst states economically into one of the richest states.

Be way cooler than doing the obvious choices.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS SORRY FOR OSWALD?

Leaves are changing, temps are dropping, normal people talking about football, must be time for me to become obsessive over the JFK killing again.

Happens every fall.  Let me recap for my newer imaginary readers.

1.  Five doctors looked at Kennedy at Parkland in emergency.  All observed and agree, there was an entrance wound at the front of the throat.

2.  Oswald could not have shot Kennedy in the front of the throat

ergo, Oswald was not the lone shooter.

This weekend have been sick and so streamed/downloaded a lot of stuff to watch between sneezing and watery eyes.  By the way, if anyone is spying on me in the living room, the 593 times I've pulled out at the corner of my eyes this weekend, like that player in the World Series was doing,  my eyes were itchy and was in no way making fun of Japanese people.  If i want to make fun of Japanese men I'll point out that even my small willie is larger than the entire nations male population of willies.

No wonder they went metric, 7.62 sounds so much better than 3.

So, where was I, the Kennedy killing.  Watched the entire The Men Who Killed Kennedy yesterday.  There is one episode where they talk to the young woman who was helping 'them' develop the fast acting cancer thing for Castro who spent lots of time with Oswald, they fell in love although married to others.

If you believe this woman, and I tend to do so, Oswald knew he was screwed and was being setup.  She recounts a phone call where he promised not to actually shoot the president, it was all he could do.

Think about that, finding yourself in a situation, where there is no options, no win, no way to get out and no way to stop without being dead.  He knew what was happening that morning, knew he was going to be setup as the shooter.

What could he do?  Anything he did other than what he was told was a death sentence for him and probably his family and anyone else he may have talked to.

I really felt sorry for the guy last night.

Also, in one of the episodes, it talks about the number of people, cops, newspeople, doctors, nurses, etc who were outside of the hospital and saw the limo and the bullet hole in the windshield - and the story of the Ford manager who oversaw the remake of the windshield, though this time it would have an indention on the interior and cracking on outside to make it look like it was hit from behind and his death bed letter detailing the whole thing.

And yet, I can not shake this feeling of sorrow for Oswald.

Lee Harvey Oswald is the personification of a Kafka protagonist.  He should be St. Oswald, the patron saint of those run over by bureaucracies and governments everywhere; those who thru no fault of their own are steamrolled and left for dead by the rich, the powerful; by the systems that mindlessly move forward leaving destruction of people in it's path.

Oswald left the army with an honorable discharged, announced he was defecting to Russia, fortunately for him he somehow was fluent in Russian.  Then after a few years comes back and is arrested, charged with treason, and tried and oh wait, no none of that happened.  He just comes back to the states and nothing happens.  This is late 50's early 60's folks, that doesn't happen unless he was sent to Russia in the first place, by our government.

So I guess the 'no fault of their own' part might be stretching things a little, Lee Harvey Oswald was a CIA dude.  Nice to know the CIA takes care of their own.

Anyways, probably more to come on this topic.  I only allow myself to read books or watch shows on the JFK thing in October and November, then I shut it down for the next 10 months.  Got to keep those obsessions under control, don't you know.

IF YOU SEEK FOR EL DORADO

I mean, think about it.  Kennedy was killed in 1963.  Fifty four years have passed and they still will not release all the records for national security reasons.

What exactly are they hiding?

Let's face it, anyone involved in the planning is dead by now, I guess George HW Bush is still alive and rolling along, but wouldn't everyone else be long gone?  Of course, we don't know Bush was involved, and he can't remember where he was on that morning,  so what is so secret?

Ask yourself this: if Oswald acted alone and was not part of a conspiracy, just some bloke who decided to kill a president, what needs secrecy?

If someone says there is nothing to hide, then goes to extreme means to hide things, you really need to wonder why.  It's like two premises that don't fit.  Like Obama and his school records, went to serious efforts to lock those records up but claimed he wasn't hiding anything.

How do you hide, nothing?  Why would you hide, nothing?

The Clinton's, however, have plenty to hide.  I wonder sometimes how many years it has been since one of them actually told the truth.  You have to admit, for a year the Trump Russia thing has been in the news, reporters and talking heads saying the treason word.  And now it turns out, as many of us knew, the Clintons were paying for the chop job in the first place.  Not to be confused with the uranium deal, where Bill gave a speech, was paid 500,000 dollars, meets with Putin afterwards, big deposit at the Clinton foundation and lo and behold, the sweet uranium deal goes through.

That's just business in the world.  But paying Fusion to gather research that turned out to be fabricated after the publication and a special prosecutor being named because of the fabricated data and now turns out the Clintons paid for it all.

Well that's just plain funny.  But worry not, like all the other Clinton scandals, they will skate on this one too.  There are people in this country that are above the law.  Then again, while this story was available about Fusion, funding, and the Clintons as well as the story of uranium and the money flying into the Clintons prior to the decision, what really blew it up this week was the Washington Post writing the story.  Once they did the NY papers all went to town on it, as well as the Chicago Tribune and LA Times.  In other words, when the Post writes it, it's legit and okay to follow up on it with their own stories.  Took nearly a year of reading about all this on those alt right web sites and news pages for the Washington Post to catch up.  But it is the Post and that is a game changer.

Now if the Washington Post could write a story on all the peds and pervs in Congress.

On another subject that old dogs should still learn, Wednesday night did my semi annual haircut where I take the clippers, take off any plastic guide and just shave my head.  Probably should have checked the weather because when you shave off 5 months of hair, you really don't want to do it when the next day a front moves in with 40mph winds and temps dropping into the 20's, jeepers was my head cold.

In case you missed it:  You know all the flack that Trump is getting on the tax plan, how liberals and media, but I repeat myself, blasting it as a tax cut for the rich?  These same liberals and media fell all over themselves when Macron was elected in France, oh, if only we could have a liberal dude like that (forgetting of course Clinton, Bush, and Obama over the last 24 years) for our president.  Guess what Macron did in France?  Slashed the taxes on the wealthy to stimulate the economy and make business boom.  And it's working, funny how the liberal media, redundant again, fails to mention this in news stories.

In case you missed it II:  In Britain, this old couple was in their home when there was a knock on the door.  Woman government official announced that it had been determined that the two old married people were unable to take care of themselves anymore and were being moved to a care facility.  The government didn't contact their adult children in the area, who spent several frantic days along with the cops trying to figure out where their parents went off to, and the home they owned became part of the state to pay for their care.

Seriously, the government just took them from their home, took ownership of their property, and put them in a care facility; no court, no judge, no input from their adult kids or neighbors.  Just one nurse putting a note in their records wondering if they were able to still take care of themselves.

And, for those of us about to hit 60, that is scary.  Look at my kitchen, bet you people think I can't take care of myself some days when the dishes are piled up, clothes all over the floor, bathrooms are not too bad but I'm sure some anal retentive types would compare them to gas stations.  But it gets even creepier.

Some Catholic hospital group in Oregon will now allow euthanasia for mentally limited people.  Yes, the alzheimer's patient that can't recognize a spouse or kid will be determined mentally able to answer a complex question about deciding to be euthanized.  This is the black hole of the government who think a 15 year old can't take an aspirin while at school but is mature enough to arrange with the school a trip for an abortion.  Now old people not all there will suddenly be lucid enough to determine they want to die.

I wonder if the Clintons would consider moving to Oregon?

Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old-
This knight so bold-
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be-
This land of Eldorado?"

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied-
"If you seek for Eldorado!"

I WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED BY WEINSTEIN

Um, okay, not really; what I've watched unfold over the last two weeks, is it appears that being harassed by Weinstein is the 'in thing' in Hollywood.  It's kind of like 2 million people in Chicago now swear they were at Game 7 last year when the Cubs one their only World Series in 200 some years - oh just wait a few years, that will be accurate.

I don't own a TV, haven't been to a movie in a theatre since, 2004(?) or something like that.  I have no idea who half the people are or what movies they were in.  I don't think I've ever seen a George Clooney movie, Pitt I saw in 12 Monkeys and that spy thing with Redford.  I recognized Judd, well sort of, she's certainly gotten old which means I must look like hell now, but most of these others I've never seen anything they were in and never heard of most.  And Streisand?  I still have not gotten over being dragged from a beautiful summer day of endless possibilities as a 7 year old and kidnapped by my mom and sister and forced to go to the movie theater to sit through Funny Girl at the Evergreen Park movie theatre.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry they were possibly harassed, assaulted, or worse.

What I don't get is the shock.

The stories of the casting couch have been around for years.  I mean back to the black and white movie days; it's always been there and how bloody naive are you?  Men with money and the power to make decisions in an industry that has millions of young hot attractive women willing to do whatever it takes to be a star?  Men with money, power, and corrupted mentally immoral with millions of young kids who probably don't care but their parents think they can be the next Beaver and they end up getting corned for years while the parents are too busy spending their paychecks.

I'm not saying every actor dropped on his knees or every actress spread the legs, but I've kind of always assumed many did to get the door open at some point.  Just like anyone who's been in DC working or elected and been there more than 10 years I just assume is now corrupted in many ways I can't even fathom.

And the high powered pervs didn't worry because they thought they had a nice ticket to pass GO, they contributed heavily to the democrats, flew millions of miles in their private jets to give checks and get awards from Planned Parenthood/Greenhouse/NAACP and all the other liberal pet causes - you know, like Bill Clinton.

Of course, republicans in DC are also protected as long as when they get that phone call they make the vote the lefties want and need.  Hey, Chief Justice Roberts!  Hey, John McCain!

Which is why old Harv is over in Europe in a sex clinic now scratching his head wondering why everyone has turned on him for doing nothing more than almost every other powerful hollywoodie man of power has done for 100 years.  He paid all the right people, made all the right political comments, backed all the right candidates, said all the right things.  "Why, why, why?", he asks in his best Nancy Kerrigan voice.

Or is he being thrown overboard to protect the rest of them, the seriously sick, the pedophiles who prey on the child actors?  There is the real illness, the powerful men in Hollywood (and Washington) who prey on young boys and girls; there is the real power and Weinstein is tossed over to protect them.

Just ask yourself one question:  You see the famous now coming out in Hollywood, acting sad, regretful, they didn't do more; they suspected but never said anything, and how bad they feel about these young actresses and what they went through.

But they don't utter a word about Corey Feldman and all those child actors - wonder why?  Me too.
Do you wonder why so many child actors of the 70's, 80's and 90's ended up all messed up as adults?
And you don't hear a peep about it for the rich and powerful actors and actresses, hmm.

Meanwhile, while the media, running out of natural disasters to cover, are back on the Trump Russia thang and had a great laugh about some fake twitter account that caught many well known conservatives retwiting or whatever it's called.   But you had to look to find the news story about the 18 million - what 18 million you ask?  Well, now here in flyover country, this one is pretty easy to follow:  Bill Clinton meets with Putin; 18 million donation to the Clinton Foundation several days later from Russians; Hillary approves the uranium sale to Russia.  Nothing to see here.

You'd need an Ivy League degree or PhD to not follow that.

See, here is a basic fact of life.  When you want something bad, want something more than anything else in life, when you are willing to do anything to get what you want, there will be very rich and powerful people willing to take that bet.  It's a fact of life.  Rich powerful people never worry about getting caught, they are rich and powerful and think they are untouchable; and the young with the willingness to do anything to get what they want are a perfect match no matter where or when you lived.  It's happened throughout history in America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Sorry ladies of Hollywood, focus on the kids, then I'll pay attention.

And another thought I'd forgotten to hit on earlier.  Ask yourself an interesting question.  Go to the Southern Poverty Law Center's website and look down the list of people/groups they consider dangerous.  You don't see a single Hollywood power player there, you see many conservative groups who oppose abortion, oppose open borders, oppose, well, anything the democrat party supports.  But not one example of people or groups who molest children.  Kind of makes you wonder where SPLC employees spend their weekends.

COGNITIVE CHAOSTIC EXPLOSIONS

The problem with trying to stay 'informed' in a world awash in useless information is occasionally you run into what can only be described as conflicting.

For example, recently in the mideastern countries, there has been a 'round up' of men suspected of being gay.  One country were going to do anus checks on them, which of course brought up all sorts of questions in my mind.  I mean, I know I am totally out of touch with culture and perhaps naive, but:

Is a gay male anus different than a normal male anus?  Bigger?  Smaller?  Rounder?  Do they need special jeans?  If the anus is different,  then wouldn't everyone be checking out everyone else's anus in the high school showers to figure out which football players were gay?

Does this mean lesbians, oh never mind.  Or what about bisexual men, is half their anus different from the other half?

And what of the people doing the checking?  I would think being the official Moslem Anal Auditor or the Islamic Overseer of Anal Assessment would have to be just a little on the side of the loafers to spend his time monitoring the anal cavities of men to determine if they are gay or not.  Maybe he's a latent kind who after sticking his finger or eye or gaymeter up another mans anus would decide if he is attracted to this man he must be gay.

Do they teach this at college now?

Meanwhile, Egypt is in the process of rounding up gays.  Perhaps there were more entrants in this years Egyptian Games and needed more gay men to act as 'tossets' for the Gay Tossing Contest.  Plenty of news/videos out there showing those peace loving Moslems enjoying a break in their hard days of work, relaxing by tying up and tossing gay men off rooftops and awarding prizes for the one that bounces the farthest.

So that leads to the brain explosion for a University of Texas student leaving campus and dropping out of school because he apparently has committed a serious crime.  Did he rape a coed and since he is not a stand out quarterback he would face charges?  Nope.  Did he scrawl anti gay slogans on bathroom walls?  Nope.  He said he had an issue with Islam because of the way they treat gays in muslim countries and someone who heard him say this reported it to school officials as a hate crime.

I'm not making this up.

So in America, saying something negative about how muslim countries treat homosexuals is a crime?  When did Muslims pass the gays in the Minority Crybaby Scale of Importance?  I thought the gay lesbian thing was like at the top of the Southern Poverty Law Centers Civil Rights are Violated by My Breathing Scale?

I have to admit, it's kind of fun to sit back and watch this all unfold, the way middle eastern countries have flooded Europe, wait, there was another story, oh yea, Tunisia has found a cure for the problem of overcrowded prisons, they just emptied them and escorted all the prisoners to ships to send to Europe, whole prison ended up settled in Germany; okay, where was I, oh yea, so for over a decade European countries like Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Britain, and Sweden have allowed tens of thousands of the 'refugees' into their countries and now are scratching their heads what to do because those refugees are taking over the country.

Frankly, if I had to go to Europe now, I'd go to Poland or Czechoslovakia where their government said "hell NO" to accepting immigrants from the middle east.  Of course, by this point, they might feel the same way about Americans.  Hungary also said no and put up a fence that apparently is working remarkably well, cutting off 99% of refugees.

I wonder if Paul Ryan would take a congressional trip to Hungary to tell them fences don't work.

Where was I, boy mind is wandering all over the place today, oh yea, sitting back and watching country after country in Europe is about to fall, to be taken over by Sharia Laws and then the real immigration problem is going to happen.  What happens when millions of Europeans suddenly want to immigrate to the United States?

Think about that, as each European country falls, the residents will look for an out and the first place they will want to come is the USA.

Imagine the politics of suddenly having 20 million white Europeans wanting to enter the USA.  You will see the biggest pendulum swing that will happen so fast you are likely to detach a retina watching it happen.  Suddenly millions who have been wanting open borders are going to be crying about all the Europeans and those who want walls will welcome them with open arms.

Maybe it is a race thing after all?  If suddenly 20 million swedish, french, irish, danish, german women suddenly wanted to come to the states, face it, most guys would be like, Sure! Okay!  I got an extra room!

Now appears to be a funny little thing happening just south of the border, seems lots of Moslems who are going to Mexico first in order to sneak into the USA are discovering the value of the peso and deciding rather than trying to get into the USA they want to stay in Mexico and hold on to your chairs, the Mexican government is working to prevent this from happening because they don't want millions of Moslems settling in Mexico, taking jobs, and ruining their culture.

How does God not just decide it's time, this is getting ridiculous.

I'm dazed and confused,
Is it stay, is it go?
I'm being abused,
And I think I should know,
Come on baby,
I'm starting to crack,
If you're out to get me,
You're on the right track.
Hey!
Hey, hey!

WHAT DIES IN VEGAS LIES IN VEGAS

We live in a world today where at least half of our nation will immediately not believe a news story.

Unfortunately, it's both halves and which ones do not believe which story is solely dependent on which side you are on and where the news story comes from. We all seem to be on 'sides' now, and it's confusing because people whose side I'm on concerning A are people whom I am against on B.   I will read the NY Times, the Washington Post, Mother Jones, Breibart, and InfoWars and fully understand each of them are telling a story based on their worldview and agendas. 

So what happened in Vegas?  Have no idea.

The story is a retired former postal worker and CPA who dabbled in real estate was a millionaire who loved to play video poker and would win or lose more money in one evening than most of us will make in  a year, just snapped and shot up a huge crowd of country western fans.

And that is the official story being sold on some websites/TV/newspapers.  Problem is, like most other lone gunman official stories, too many loose ends and unexplained things to accept the story if you look at it logically.

Now one of the best things you can do when you have such an incident is there are apps that allow you to listen to police scanners all over the world and some enterprising people will always record the whole thing and then post on youtube.

Listen to the police scanners of that night and multiple multiple callers are identifying shooters in the middle of the hotel, not the top.  Callers are talking about multiple shooters, guy shooting from an exit, etc.  I understand it's chaotic, but close your eyes, picture such a situation and what will be one of the two things you will totally focus on?  Most will just follow the direction the herd is running, for sure, but the others who will also be the one calling rather than running or standing in place to record the whole thing for their Facebook page, that will pay attention to where are people shooting from and where can I run/hide to get away the quickest from where the shooting is coming from.  So if people see shooting from and exit and people are all running from that exit, pretty much can bet there was a shooter at the exit.

And everyone is reporting the shooting from the middle of the building.  They even have multiple videos of what looks like it might be shooting from about the fourth or fifth floor.  Could also be someone taking burst photos from a phone too though.   So if you want raw data, nothing better than the police scanner - words before the lies can be told.

Of course I, my dear imaginary readers, living outside the box recognized those flashes immediately as morse code and decoded it as "Paul is dead" - backwards it said "bet it all one more time".

Another thing is so in your face obvious, how did some durod (if you don't know what Durod means you have to read back where it was once define and how the word was created - think peckerwad ) carry over two dozen guns and thousands of rounds of ammo up to a room on the 32 floor and no one notice anything?  How did the maids not notice?

I've never been to Vegas so this next is my speculation based on a couple of friends who go all the time and the large hotels have security systems and sweeps that would make a military base look easier to hide or sneak around in.

Cameras on every entrance.  Cameras in all the hallways.  Cameras in all the stairwells.  Cameras in the elevators.  Maids are trained when entering rooms to do security sweeps for anything out of the ordinary.

So, unless the hotel can come up with a reasonable explanation, lone gunman not looking good at this point.

And who was the woman dozens of concert goers saw/heard telling people that they should all run, they need to get out of here, they were all going to die - 45 minutes before the start of the concert.  She and another male were escorted out of the concert, hispanics, both around 5ft 5 or 5ft 7.  Maybe workers at hotel who knew something was up and were trying to save people?  Speculation on my part but fact is it happened, it was heard, multiple witnesses.

At this point, the old geezer who snapped is totally destroyed, after all, if he'd just snapped, sure was a coincidence for him that he had this wonderful collection of over 2 dozen rifles and thousands of rounds of ammo in his hotel room for no good reason when he snapped.

No snapping, totally premeditated.

By the way, does anyone know where OJ was when this went down?  Maybe OJ was finally determined  the Brown/Goldman killers were country music fans.

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away
Across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Images of broken light which dance before me like a
Million eyes
They call me on and on
Across the universe
Thoughts meander like the restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe

TRUMP TWITTERS PART TWO

So, what did we learn?  Trump pissed off a bunch of overpaid athletically gifted people who coasted through high school and college with free rides and greased thru the tough classes.

And woke up America.

Then he introduces a tax plan that will benefit all those awoken Americans and hose the athletes, owners, and people who buy skyboxes at sporting events.

He doubles the exemptions from 6k to 12k, figure that will save me about 1200 to 1500 bucks a year. How much did you itemize last year?  8k?  10k?  Guess what, now you can just simple form it and not worry about all those deductions.

For those of you itemizing and living in states that have income taxes, you no longer will be able to write off the state income taxes from federal income.  That's what you liberal commies get for supporting the players, most of whom couldn't tell you why they are protesting.

Does anyone even remember why the former QB took a knee in the first place?  Was it about cops shooting black men?  I think that was why.  Of course, there are more police shootings of white people than black people every year, and the other day some article showed that if you compare police shootings to public shooting public, it's like .0029% of the shootings in NYC.

But why let facts and stats get in the way of a great story that doesn't exist?

So now the question: did Trump's Twitter attack on the NFL players to incite the foundation of America just before releasing the tax plan that will benefit the foundation of America the plan all along?

Too bad the bill will never pass the Senate Republicans, I'm sure McCain and some others will derail it for everyone.  And get big deductible cash contributions from the players, owners, and skybox buyers.  Then again, after what happened in Georgia, maybe some of those Senators running in 2018 are going to wake up and go with the program to try and stave off a primary challenger.

But here is a bigger question:  why would democrats not support the tax play?
1.  People making less than 75K will pay less in taxes or no taxes - that by the way is about 60% of the over 18 population.
2.  A surcharge tax on the wealthy?  How can they claim the tax plan is a tax break for the wealthy when the foundation of the country get the big break and there is going to be a surcharge on the wealthy - oh yea, all the dems in congress are the wealthy - they just are going to need a good story.
3.  Corp tax rate comes down to just under the average corporate tax rate of all the nations, we will go from having the highest corporate tax rates to being less than half, which can only help businesses and create jobs in this country.

I don't know if it will pass or not, but understand this much; if it does pass, that business climate in this country will boom like the 80's and 90's did.

TRUMPS TWITTERS

Is Trump smarter than the rest of us?

Seems like every few months or so he gets tooled up or something and starts Twitting and the next thing you know every news story is about Trumps Twitters, and even his biggest fans are thinking all they want for Xmas is for someone to take that damn smart phone away from Trump.

Could the Secret Service shoot the phone and claim it was a perceived threat on the president's life?  That would be cool.

But Trump has been in office for 9 months now and a smart person might have figured out maybe this Twitting isn't such a good idea.  But let's take a different approach to figure out what is going on and ask ourselves, is he doing this intentionally?  Playing with people?  Manipulating things?

I've read what he twitted several times.  At no time did he make reference to the race of NFL players, yet everyone is freaking out as it being racist.  Everyone is attacking him for being racist.

I don't watch football, do only black players protest during the national anthem?

And once again, liberals are all hung up on race, conservatives, who are always being called racists, actually don't give a crap.  Guess what, if Tom Brady, (yes, I've heard of him) sits during the national anthem, I would have the same opinion of him I do of a black player who sits - and it's not a favorable one.

See, the issue here isn't race, it is of behavior, and it is of what can an employee do during work and what control does the employer have.

But my imaginary readers are sharp, you already know the answer to this.  If your company starts the day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or singing God Bless America, what happens is the boss pulls you into the office and reads you the riot act and in todays world notifies HR you are on report and tomorrow if you sit for it again they fire your ass.

Yep, that is how it works.  When you are in employment with a company and you do something that offends a large percentage of fans who stop coming or watching the games, buying the jerseys, etc, they fire your ass for hurting the business.

When players are in uniform, they are representing the business, and if they sit or protest during the Star Spangled Banner when league and team rules say you are to stand at attention, and your stands are filled with men and women who served in our military, or kids are in the military and they see some durod getting paid 10m a year sitting on his ass during the SSB, they know two things, one, h is an ass and two it pisses them off.

And they know if they did something on their job, that takes two work days to afford the ticket to the football game and pay the salary of the ass,  similar to what the players are doing, they would get fired on the spot.

Trumps Twit.

You want to stop it, fire the next player that does it for violation of team and league rules.

When you enter employment, you enter a contract with employer that limits your free speech.  Now outside of work, it gets a little more complex.

Let's say, for example, you are a retail employee for REI.  And on your day off you march in an NAZI march.  They see your picture.  Should you get fired?  Yes, REI should fire your ass.  And if you march for Black Lives Matter and looting and rioting?  Yes - you won't be, but you should.  You won't be because BLM is politically correct with the occult media - hey, did you read about Sally Quinn? - and the NAZI's are not politically correct so the NAZI goes and the BLM stays.

Do either on company time and you will be fired.

What makes an NFL player so special?  Well, besides being passed thru high school, free rides to colleges, free passes for rapes and other crimes, large sums of money to play a kids game and all the special privileges that come with being a professional jock.

Maybe some NFL team with a little balls will do something like this: next game, when a player sits or kneels during the national anthem, suspend them for the next two games and replace them on the roster with a soldier missing a leg or two or arm or two.  Let him wear the uniform of the NFL and he may not play in the game, but I will bet you he struggles to stand for that national anthem.

He may not know much about football, but he could teach all those players what it means to be a man.

But, back to Trumps Twits.  Why did he do this?  Is he being clever, causing a commotion in order to distract everyone from something else going on?  I wonder i you looked at the history of Trumps Twitter Tantrums and timed them with what is in the news?  Like another John McCain vote killing the repeal of ObamaCare Taxes on middle class America?

By the way, if you were going to court, facing jail time, would you want a lawyer suffering brain cancer and undergoing treatment representing you?  How about a heart surgeon?  Your accountant?
Take a brokers recommendation from a broker with brain disease?  Doesn't AZ have some sort of rule or way to remove a sitting elected government official due to mental imbalances?

Let's face it, when Trump goes a Twitting, all other news goes unread.  Because for reporters of modern America, and most Americans, twitter wars are something they can comprehend, NK, economics, etc are beyond their public education.

Oh yea, back to Quinn, who worked for years as the religious reporter for the Washington Post and claimed to be an atheist and now we find out since childhood has been seriously doing occult sort of things including claiming to cause the death of three people whom she cursed.

Ask yourself this, Sally Quinn is sort of the ultimate power broker in DC, along with her former husband.  They held the power and the social king and queen of the prom title for 3 or 4 decades, and do you think she was this occult queen and it didn't trickle down the power/social circles?

Remember the vast far alt right rumors last fall about pizza gate and those stories about blood drinking and other sort of things in DC?

Not so far fetched anymore, not when the queen of power/social circles in DC admits it.

Too bad George Nooray didn't ask her about that.

THE PLAN OF IFS

Let's start with blog stats.  Last night had over 50 imaginary readers visit the blog.  Forty were from Russia.  Yet by blog stats only show 4 read, 3 read, 2 read by title and they don't add up to 50.

And why am I becoming so popular with imaginary readers in Russia?  Perhaps my writing compares to the great Russian writers of history?  My writing goes good with Vodka?  Ah, stereotypes!

Or maybe they are Trump spies?  So todays poll question: What is the most popular stereotype of a Russian today in America?  A person drunk on vodka or a spy working for the Trump election? - I still don't get all that.

As stated, if it were not for the media and democrats, do you realize there was a small window of opportunity when Trump was elected, that the US and Russia could have forged a friendship, put aside the hostilities, maybe helped Russia join NATO which would have been seriously cool because one of NATO's rules is one NATO country cannot attack another and any NATO country attacked will be defended by all other NATO countries so if Russia joined NATO how would that be bad?

But no, it is 24/7 the dems and their sponsored media minions pounded how bad Russia is, despite a 50 year history of the democratic party supporting socialism and communism and hold Russia as a shining example of what America could be - I still don't get all that.

If the quantum theory of entanglement is true, does that mean when someone delivered me a cold pizza, that somewhere else someone burned their mouth on their pizza?

Since once upon a time I promised this blog would be about starting life over in your late 50's I shall discuss a puzzle.  So right now I'm buying 5% of company stock with each paycheck, also putting 5% in a 401k; the plan is if this and if that and if this happens and if that happens and if this can happen and I can work for this company another 10 years till I am 70, I might have enough money to retire and not live in poverty.  Okay, but by putting 10% a check into this Plan of If's, I am now currently living like a pauper.  So I am choosing to struggle financially so that there is a small possibility that in 10 years I can retire comfortably based on a Plan of If's that have a probability of all happening  of something like .0039.  And, of course, I can always die before I reach 70, so do I intentionally struggle for the next 10 years hoping this plan with a chance of success is .0039 works and I can have some money when I'm old or do I just say the hell with it and spend and enjoy life now knowing that the world is probably gonna suck in 10 years whether I have any money or not and whether I am alive or not.

And the things is, it's not like this plan would make me seriously rich in 10 years, it won't, it will still be a struggle I'm sure, but probably a little less of a struggle, but then I add 10 years of struggling and the end result will be struggling anyways so why not just spend it now and not struggle, knowing I'm totally hosing myself after 70, if I live that long.

Now I understand why people marry and have kids so when the parent reaches 70, they can shrug and let their kids figure it out for them.

And if one of the ifs fail and the whole plan falls apart, then I will struggle for the next 8 years and still get a crappy life after 70.  So maybe smart is cutting that 401k and stock plan in half, living a little better now, and still having something to struggle thru the latter years.  Brain hurts now.

But that is starting over in your late 50's, with 60 knocking on the door this December.  Cause I am lying to myself with the 50/50 on all 8 of the ifs in the Plan of Ifs, probably more like a 25% chance, which make the odds .00001526.  Another one of those wonderful mysteries of life where, in the end, you have a choice A or B and both totally suck.

Which reminds me i bought a lotto ticket last month and haven't checked to see how much I won!

Shit.  Okay, so much for that idea.

I wonder why no one has ever written the self help book "Forget the Planning and Dreaming; The Game is Fixed and You are Hosed No Matter What You Do".   I'm surprised Werner Erhard never thought of that title for a book.

I will admit, after my little dig on BLM I was wondering if Google would have killed my account and blog, I guess having a blog no one reads except imaginary readers pays off sometimes.  Imaginary readers never tattle on the bloggers.

There's an old man in our town
And I guess he's been around
For years and years
At least it seems that way.

Wrinkled hands and rocking chair
Growing old just sitting there
Every year he had the sing
For youth to say.

Youth only happens to you one time
An so I've been told
If you should miss it in your youngtime
Have it when you're old.

Now there's no old man sitting there
Just an empty rocking chair
But the things he said
Will always be around.

Someday when I'm old and grey
Maybe youth can come my way
I'll be proud to be
The old man in our town.

And I'll say youth only happens to you one time
An so I've been told
If you should miss it in your youngtime
Have it when you're old...

WHEW, WAY TO GO BLACK LIVES MATTER

Frankly, with all they had on their plate, I could not believe BLM was able to get to St. Louis and stage three or four days of rioting, not with their people so spread out and resources depleted with all the BLM rescue operations in Texas and Florida from those two  hurricanes.

When they count the totals number of illegal aliens in the country, do they including the 350,000 in federal or state prisons?

See, that is the trouble with the immigration debate; one side touts 200 shining examples of number 1 in their graduating class and what an upstanding employee they are and the other side brings out the names of the 7,000 Americans killed by illegal aliens over the last decade.  Never going to see eye to eye on anything arguing with those two worldview set in stone.

Funny how the world changes though, 20ish years ago, it was the right wing republicans fighting to keep Elian Gonzales in the country and the democrats wanting to send him back to Cuba.

I do owe Jennifer Lawerence something of an apology.  I'd commented on what she said, something to suggest mother nature was punishing the US for Trump, as being the most idiotic thing ever uttered.  But I started to think about the people blaming climate change/global warming for the 3 massive hurricanes.  Before Harv and Irma, it had been 11 years since the last hurricane to hit the US mainland.  So it dawned on me suggesting some kind of supernatural reason for the hurricanes actually makes more logical sense than what the CC/GW crowd is saying.

But what I really want to talk about in today's chautauqua is the Chicago Bears.

1.  They kind of suck
2.  But in 2 or 3 years they might be the divisions best.

Might.

See, they are seriously snake bit with injuries, every year, which makes me think just changing the coach isn't going to help much.  They need to change trainers and nutritionists.  I mean what are the odds a guy tears his pec muscle on a play, they put in his replacement the next week and he tears his pec muscle too.  Two players in two weeks with an obscure tearing of a pec muscle?   The entire NFL goes seasons without that sort of injury.   Something seriously wrong in that weight room and nutritional intake.

But I like they are hiding the second coming on the bench right now playing the first 5 or 6 games against some seriously good teams.  Why let him figure out the wasteland of a career that awaits him? Wait until mid October, when the football season in Chicago unofficially ends along with baseball seasons, then bring him in, fill the stadium with subpeons who will sit in cold and rain to cheer a last place team to see the future.

It is a business after all.  And the circus is officially closed.

Maybe if the Bears changed their uniform to Creepy Clowns they might frighten an opponent into submission?

No, wait, that Creepy Clowns could be a great new name for the Redskins if they are ever forced by the politically correct reptilian schmuks to change their name, what better name for a football team representing our nations capital than Creepy Clowns.

What a great survey for the blog:  If the Redskins change their team name to The DC Creepy Clowns, who is their mascot?

1.  Denny Hassert
2.  Bill Clinton
3.  Anthony Weiner
4.  Any member of congress would probably work

Still, if the Bears put on creepy clown make up it couldn't hurt, unless they tear a deltoid putting on the makeup.

GLASS HOUSES by LOUISE PENNY


Another adventure by Louise Penny hit the shelves last weekend and it's a wonderful book.

Personally, I think her books should be read in order.  Her character development and the history of Three Pines plays important roles in her writing and it's hard to understand the characters and their choices if you are not familiar with the history of the characters.

Many of the regulars in her series, while in those book, seem to take something of a backseat to the bigger story of that age old question:  do the ends justify the means.  Do you break the law to save the law?  What exactly are you willing to risk?

Not doing a book review here, just letting my imaginary readers know that one of the great all time series of books is by Louise Penny.  First book is Still Life and Glass Houses is 13th in a series I hope never ends.

BATTON DOWN THE HATCHES BOYS, IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD

So, if and when Irma keeps moving west and completely misses Miami, how are you going to deal with several million people who were evacuated for nothing?

I know, better safe than sorry, and if I lived there I'd have been in Ohio by last Tuesday, but we live in Idiotsville these days and all those people are going to come back, pissed off, and when the next hurricane comes they will stay when the Cat 5 actually hits Miami.

Which I guess is not a bad thing, fewer idiots is always a good thing.

But our Climate Chicken Littles (CCL) are not missing a step, Harvey and Irma were caused by global warming caused by Trump not going along with the Paris Accord.  Several of our countries most highly paid actresses have come forward to announce Mother Nature is punishing the USA for voting for Trump or something, my brain exploded before I could finish reading their whole statement, which I don't know if Jennifer Lawerence realizes it, but she just proved to herself she is:

A:  Dumb as an ox and that is probably an insult to oxen.
B: Is able to memorize lines
C: Every male in the world would want to have sex with her

Which is why stupid is so highly paid in Hollywood.

So, if the hurricanes are Mother Nature getting even with the USA, then please explain to all those Mexicans why Mother Nature just popped that earthquake on Mexico and killed all those people?  What did they do to deserve Mother Nature's wrath?  Or how about all the people killed or lost everything in all those islands that were destroyed prior to Irma reaching Trump voters in Florida?

See, the issue is when you attribute something to Mother Nature, moon gods, or even the one true God in Heaven Himself, you open the alternative.  When I was struggling along being a caretaker for my dad, as many of my imaginary readers know, it was seriously a difficult thing.  Had a friend who I worked with at that plant in Chicago area and he got a new job that paid more and he was so happy always saying God had blessed him.  Now the implication here is that God favored him and got him this great job while apparently God is pissing on me because He isn't blessing me.

If you are going to give God (or insert any false deity you mistakenly believe in other than the one true God in Heaven - that should piss off the politically correct goblins) credit when good things in your life happen, shouldn't you also give God credit when your life goes down the crapper?

Think of Houston or any other disaster, fires, floods, tornadoes.  One house will stand unharmed while neighbors homes all around are totally destroyed and they lost everything.  God saved X while destroying Y and Z.  Y and Z don't understand why because X is kind of an ass, so why was he spared while do-gooders Y and Z lose everything they own?

Don't ask me, I don't understand it either.  Read Job, the answer is there if you can figure it out.

But one thing I do understand is every time a natural disaster happens, people expect the government to print up a few more billion dollars and buy them all new stuff.  And politicians pushing an agenda will  jump on board full out stupid.

Why don't people who build homes along coast lines where hurricanes are common accept a little responsibility for choosing to live in that area?  You get to live along the Florida coast and all the advantages of living in paradise,  well the bill will come one day when a hurricane hits and you won't have insurance to cover it and then expect someone else living in Kansas to cover it.  Same with California and building homes and businesses all along fault lines and you KNOW that one day it's going to go and when it does, you want someone else to rebuild your home and buy you a new plasma screen TV.

Funny when mother nature does something along a coast line the rest of America is suppose to pay for it with tax dollars but when the same farmer who is taxed up the wazoo to cover those costs has his entire fields wiped out by a storm a week before harvesting was due to start, we expect the farmer to deal with it themselves.  Which is why farmers buy insurance and buy/sell options to cover their asses if they can.

Why when a storm destroys homes do we expect government to refund people but when a storm wipes out a seasons worth of crops the farmer is expected to deal with it, part of doing business?

I love the way America responded to Houston.  Good ol' guys and dolls from all over the south showed up with their boats and rescued whomever they could.  Didn't give a damn about skin color, who you voted for - they just saved the people the best they could. All lives mattered.  Tens of millions of dollars donated for food and shelter needs.  Nobody cares whether it's helping white people or black people, it's to help people.

And that is the great thing about a crisis.  All the BS drops away, from care taking a parent with alzheimer's to floods to tornadoes.  We go thru life in America bitching and moaning about whether people born guys but want their own tits to play with getting to use the woman's room or because I choose to have sex with X I deserve special rights or because my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandma and grandpa were slaves I should get reparations or because I snuck into the country illegally I should get to vote in US elections or blah blah blah blah blah; we live this BS daily because life in the USA is good, we got time on our hands, and it takes a crisis to strip all that bull shit away and bring it down to the basics of humanity, living and dying, being a hero or being a goblin.

The same person who knocked you down in the store to buy that 80% off television on Black Friday will be the same person who rescues you in an earthquake.  The same person you knocked down at a protest will be the same person you risk your life to rescue in the flood.

Face it, on any given day, each person you meet will likely screw you to the ground if it's in their best interest; but after a crisis, they will risk their lives to save the same person they screwed into the ground.

And somehow, I find that reassuring.  Before the crisis, it will be every man for himself.  After it's hit, we will risk our lives to save a stranger.  It's a message to the world, we may be dysfunctional morons, but we will rise to the occasion.  When all is lost, we find ourselves.  We find out who we are and we show the world who we are.  There is hope.

So bring on the hurricanes, bring on the earthquakes, the floods, the tornadoes.  It's the only time Americans shine brightly and can truly be proud of themselves.  The rest of the time we are a nation of idiots.  And maybe the One True God in Heaven knows this.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.


Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,
"As ye deal with my condemners, So with you my grace shall deal;"
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded form the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

Ln the beauty of the lillies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

DON'T FORGET THE BIG DAY! MARK IT ON YOUR CALENDAR! SEPTEMBER 12TH!!!!

That is right, September 12th, my favorite day of the year.

September 12th is National Chocolate Milkshake Day!!!!  Like anything else could compete.

Now I know what some people think, hey, that's cool, I'll have a chocolate milkshake that day.

Bloody Rookies.

That is no way to approach this holiday.  You have to train for it, you have to prepare for it, you have to BE the chocolate milkshake.

That is why I began prepping full out today for September 12th.  Well, actually, I begin training in October, but now the preparation phase is over and it's time to really put the pedal to the metal and get ready for the 12th.

My secret to the best chocolate milkshake?  Raw eggs.  Yep, knock two organic brown eggs into the shake, well, not the shell, and mix it up with organic whole milk, Nestles Quick, and organic vanilla bean ice cream - and two raw eggs.

It's a protein explosion!

So get ready for the 12th, National Chocolate Milkshake Day.

The sad thing is, I'm not making that up, there really is such a holiday and two raw eggs are great in a milkshake.

I am pondering the possibility the Illuminate or Shadow Government doesn't actually exist.  I mean there is no Chamber where  people meet and make these behind the scenes decisions.  I am beginning to wonder if the truth is not even more terrifying.

That the thing we call a shadow government is really nothing  more than the bureaucracy, a bureaucracy so large, so nameless, it just sucks everything in and crushes it to it's desire.  A black hole. The Black Hole Bureaucracy that nothing controls, nobody can change, that every move is automatically countered by the vastness of nameless bureaucrats, lawyers, lobbyists, etc without any discussion, an immune system that treats new ideas, new plans, as a virus that needs to be destroyed.

One side denies it exists, one side insists it's there, neither can point to anything to prove the point but you know it's there, you see it, watch it; swallowing up ideas, taking simple plans and turning it into 3000 page bills that no one understands or reads which allows it to become whatever the bureaucracy needs at any given time.

If the bureaucracy said tomorrow everyone needs their medical ID number from ObamaCare tattooed on the bottom of their foot, it would suddenly appear on page 2,351, paragraph 4 section VXIV.  A silent, unseen, unknown, undiscovered force that controls our government.

See, here is what was kind of missed in the 2016 election, I mean we know it was about change, Trump or Sanders showed that, but what Washington, the media, and others are missing is just how deeply emotionally felt this need was.  Over 100,000,000 voters went to the polls in 2016 understanding how bad things are and realized that the same ol' same ol' was not going to change anything.

So liberalish people jumped on Bernie's wagon and totally outvoted Hillary Clinton's voters.  But the bureaucracy, the machine, was designed to catch it, fix it, for the candidate of the black hole.  I think I'm going to get this right and too lazy to look it up but I think it was California that allowed people to register to vote, declare a party on primary day which millions in CA did.  The problem was those ballots would be hand counted later after addresses names et were confirmed.

And CA declared Hillary the winner in June's primary the very next day.  Then, after the convention, the same day ballot counts were released and Bernie won.

In the election, the founding fathers proved once again their brilliance in designing a system that the bureaucracy cannot overcome, the electoral college.  So Trump was able to get in, the little states and their votes outnumbered the  2/3 of the high population states and Trump goes to DC where he is instantly smothered by the black hole of media, the leaking from every department of either classified info, memos, letters, phone calls to foreign leaders, and out right lies and now Trump is smothered.

And the message, whether you supported Trump or Bernie is clear.  Such behavior will not be tolerated by the invisible black hole of bureaucracy.  But it has not killed that feeling in the gut of America, whether Trump or Bernie people, that hole is in our gut, that little voice in our heads telling us that the point of no return is close.  And we just watch the door get shut.


Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life
