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.

PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU ARE BLOWING IT

Dear Mr. President,

Whew, that was close.  You almost got labeled replacing a swamp gas foul smelling stinking health care plan with a swamp gas pretty smelling health care plan.  Kind of like putting lipstick on a pig?  Now that you mention it.

Can't help wondering about something though.  Paul Ryan is not your friend, you know it.  The guy bad mouthed you all during the primaries, said he couldn't support you, finally after you got the nomination said okay, then when that tape came out dropped you like a rock.  But when you got elected and members of congress were looking at dumping the gym sock, you didn't push that, and he became speaker and now you've hung a dead albatross around his neck and in the next couple of weeks if he is forced to step down from Speaker, I gotta say, that was one seriously cool job of paying the score.

But let's talk about health care Mr. President.  So RyanCare dies, and the middle class is going to need to keep paying premiums 3 to 4 times higher than we did before ObamaCare.

Now here is the thing.  There are certain inevitable things in life; death, governments taxing working people till just before the point where they show up at the presidents residence with torches and pitchforks.  Well, there is another one.

National Health Care.  Anyone that studies the cause/effects and flow of life knows that by 2030, maybe 2035, America will have NHC.

And let's face facts.  The republicans cannot possibly create a NHC system.  No way, no how.  Republicans are cursed thru all history of shooting themselves in the foot, time and time again.  And they will never come to agree on NHC.  Democrats, the adorable little lemmings, well they all fall right in line when a democrat is in the WH and they will gladly design a NHC system.  But face facts, democrats would take two years to plan a softball game.  There would have to be environmental impact studies, then members of the party would point out it won't be fair to have some athletic white guy only having to run 90 feet to a base when an out of shape woman has to run the same distances and by the time of the game each player will have a different distance to run between bases based on sex, race, income, sexual preferences, etc.

Just look at the two major bills signed when Obama had a democratic congress:  ObamaCare and the Dodd Frank Bill, two bills that nobody could read before voting and nobody today has finished reading either since.

Now this is why we elected you Mr. President.

We elected a businessman to do things right.  So that is what you need to come up with, a National Health Care Plan, Medicare cradle to grave, and pay for it with a 1 or 2 cent sales tax.

Now everyone who buys anything will pay for NHC.  People who work, people who don't work.   Everyone  will pay into the system.  And those who make more money will contribute more because they will spend more.

Now, people will still need to buy medicare supplement insurance, but that will be prices nice because those who have trouble getting insurance with pre existing conditions will have all the basics covered by the NHC system, the sample size of people buying will drive the prices down and you can get rid of the medicare tax on payrolls, businesses will love you because one of the biggest disadvantages we have globally is everyone else has NHC and we have our businesses putting all those company paid premiums into the cost of goods sold - that will go away which should drive down prices since that Ford car won't have health insurance premiums tacked onto the price of the car, the dealers won't have to tack it on, etc etc etc.

This is why we elected you.  To be different, to think different, to be bold.

Plan it right, like a business, put in poke yoke traps to prevent congress from raising the taxes from 1 cent to 5 cents to get their hands on cash - you know like can't raise the tax more than 1/2 a cent and cannot raise the tax more than once every 5 years and cannot raise it more than twice in 20 years, etc.

This is why we elected you, not that embarrassing politician thing we saw this week, unless that was you being clever to get rid of Paul Ryan or something.


And you can sell this to the America public.  Point out how medicare will cover every citizen from birth to death, yes you should by supplement insurance, prescription drug prices will come down to levels similar to Canada, businesses will boom because they will be freed of the burden of paying for employee health care, nobody can bitch about a 1 cent sales tax to pay for health care - well, they will but will look like the idiots they are and anytime you can let idiots behave like idiots it is a win win for everyone.

This is why we elected you.  Be bold, think different, be different.

Speaking of which, all these pension funds going broke is an albatross just waiting to die and bury this country.  Problem is, almost all pension funds are based on the assumption that they can get a 7% return.  Trouble is, the last time bonds paid 7% Bush Senior was president.  Since Clinton, presidents have worked hard to force interest rates down to 1% to make payments on the trillions in debt less.  And because of that, pension funds are going broke.  So unless you want this volcano to blow during your presidency, or leave it for the next president, why don't you do something about it.  Not hard, just allow public and private pensions to invest at least 50% into mutual funds.

Imagine what pension funds would look like if they'd been investing in Fidelity Funds, American Funds, Franklin Funds etc the last 30 years.  None would be broke and pensioners would be very happy.

This is why we elected you.  To be bold, think different, be different.

And while I am at it, one more thing.  The tax code.  KISS it Mr. President.  Keep it Simple, stupid.  You don't need multiple percentages.  Pick something between 10% and 18%.  No deductions, none at all.  No interest on home loans, no charitable, no kids, nada nothing.

Just make the standard deduction 40k for single and 60k for married.  If you are single and make 60k, you pay, say 15% on 20k or 3k.  Less than you do now.  Make 100k and married, you pay 15% on 40k.  Less than you do now.  Of course, the more you make the more you pay and that is not how it works now.  I paid a higher % on my taxes last year than you did, Pelosi did, Obama did, Buffett did, etc.  Because that % you decide on will also be the tax on dividends, capital gains and net income for corporations.

And everyone can understand it.  It's simple to do and the lobbyists will hate you for it but the people will love you for it.

This is why we elected you.  To be bold, think different, be different.

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!’

DRIFTING

I find myself adrift.

No motivation, no ambition.

I don't have a TV, but don't kid yourself, the computer is on and old shows, DVD's, and in any given month I might be subscribed to Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Wasting time, wasting life.  Don't go to church anymore, not many churches today are where I am at theologically.  I've discovered in my studies, the questioning of Paul's Epistles belonging in the Bible has been raging since Day 1.  Early church fathers totally rejected Paul, not until Constatine did Paul become important, so important most all churches today are Paulinian not Jesus focused.  Kierkegaard rejected Paul, thus his statement "I am not a Christian" came from his rejection of Paul's words over the OT and Jesus' words.  Tolstoy rejected Paul, even Bonhoeffer rejected Paul, thus his book The Cost of Discipleship where he trashes the 'cheap grace' of Paul's epistles.

Well I do have this dream of riding my bike across America in 2020 to take my mom's ashes home.  I got the bike now, only need to get myself in shape  to make the trip, physically and financially.  Right now those are far off.

Do I have goals?  Well, and there is don't be fired.  I find myself figuring out if I can put another % in company stock or 401k, yes, started a 401k, and then multiplying it out till I'm 70 and thinking well, as long as the market triples over the next 11 years, I continue to get about 4% a year increases, I can work with same company for another 10 years, the company continues to grow, the US economy recovers and grows,  I will have enough to retire.  There are a whole lot of 'if's' in that plan I have absolutely no control over.

What kind of idiocy am I thinking?  Like XXX is going to let me continue what I'm doing for another 10 years, like AI won't be replacing this position by the time I'm 65 and like they don't have some sort of way to rid people at 65.  Do you know how many things can go wrong in 10 years to prevent that plan from working?

I'm trying to live simply, drive a 99 volvo still and hopefully will for a few more years.  Trying to put 12% in stock and 401k now, trying to eliminate things so I can increase that number.  Get a raise, increase the % and never actually get any of the raise.

And I think this is a plan?  If one thing life has taught me, plans, never work.

See, the problem is, as we move forward in time, the BB and Gun X'ers are going to need to work past 65 in a society that will push them out at 65, in a society that will be replacing 50% of all jobs with robots within 20 years.

Smart people in government and business would be thinking about this, not whether someone had lunch with a Russian in 2016.  But then smart people don't go to DC, little people who dream of power and sell their soul to the devil go to DC, so can't expect much hope, only chains, from them.

What I need, is to relax and enjoy the drifting.  And just accept the fact of life that no matter what I do, it won't matter in the end.


I said land-ho, will I be sailing forever
Oh-oh I gotta find some shelter from the cold
Land-ho, will I be searching forever
Oh-oh I gotta find an anchor for my soul

Well you may think I'm a fool, and think I'm running away
But I've had enough of the city lights, oh I've got no reason to stay

I said land-ho, will I be sailing forever
Oh-oh I need some wind to help me to my goal
Land-ho, will I be searching forever
Oh-oh, I gotta find an anchor for my soul

When you're alone there's not a sail in sight
Oh it's cold and dark and there's no one there to see you through the night
There once was a lady made me feel alright
But she couldn't stay so one lonely day, she just sailed away
And took away my life

Maybe I'll always be sad, and maybe there'll always be strife
Drifting alone with a saddened tone, afloat on the ocean of life

SNOWFLAKES BEWARE

I know, I know, it's been over a month, my imaginary readers.

Writing is kind of like working out.  Back in college, the gyms I belonged to were setup like this:  T-TH-Sat were men workout days and MWF were women workout days.  I never missed a workout - yes, I could ONLY go TTHSat and I worked TTHSat evenings as a bartender, but the thing was, I knew if I blew off Tuesday, it would be Thursday before I could workout again, which would mean I'd go 5 days between workouts.

Now gyms are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and I noticed when gym hours expanded over the years my ability to blow off a workout increased.

Writing a blog now is kind of like that, there is so much to write about, by the time my 'blog' has started to form in my head, new news hits the waves and I never write the mental blog I completed and start making up a new blog.

I sit in utter amazement at what is happening in the news.  You KNOW this is not going to end well.

To the snowflakes or spoiled millennials or brainwashed little brats, whatever they are called, you need to understand a basic fact of life:

What you are thinking about the current president is not very much different than millions of people thought over the last 8 years of Obama.  Yep, very little difference.  Except those to thought that way about Obama and wondered how we would survive hunkered down and waited it out and the opportunity to elect someone who would overturn Obama - which is why Trump is in office today.

Cheer up, you got the media on all those DC bureaucrats on your side.

See, when we thought it strange that Obama locked up all his records including high school, college, graduate, and law school records we thought that strange, some of us remember a young black guy on Chicago Tonite (7pm on PBS Channel 11 in Chicago) always introduced as 'born in Kenya" and his PR firm said he was born in Kenya and wondered if he could run for president, we were called birthers and nuts.

Now you demand Trump reveal his tax returns and even have a NY reporter posting his contact info asking IRS agents to forward him those tax records - breaking the law in so many ways, and that is okay.

Snowflakes, you sound like the birthers.

But hats off to the people who showed up at the Trump rally in Austin recently.  When speakers were rudely interrupted but about 2 dozen anti Trump protesters, the Trump attendees walked over and basically kicked their asses around for a few minutes, teaching snowflakes for the first time that exercising your freedom of speech can have consequences.  For the past 8 years, if people spoke out against Obama, we were called racists, bigots, homophobes, and whatever other adjectives were available in the dems little red book called "shouting adjectives to avoid actual debate".

The dems in DC were going bonkers that anyone associated with Trump might of had a conversation with anyone in Russia, read “Notes from the Underground” by Dostoyevsky, or ate black fish eggs sometime in the last 100 years and claiming we should impeach until pictures show up of all those same dems eating, drinking, and laughing it up with all those now evil Russian leaders.

And this weekend Trump goes nuts in Twitter (would someone please break his cell phone now) about his home being bugged and Obama saying wasn't him, he never did anything like that while Jim Rosen and Sheryl Atkinson choke on their morning coffee and muffin reading Obama saying he never orders wiretaps on anyone.

Think about this for a second, a former prez with quite the little record of wiretaps on American citizens while he is in office and a president who discovers wiretaps in his home - golly, anyone checking out Pence's home, and ask yourself why would Trump announce this in the way he did and not wonder what is up with that?

There is a little game going on.  Obama is suppose to be living now with Valarie Jarrett in DC, where is Michelle in all this?  I mean how many marriages do you know where the husband can announce, "hey baby, I think it would be great if another woman moved in with us, you don't mind do you?".  So they are reported to be running the get rid of Trump, as opposed to most presidents who go quietly away and don't screw with the new president, and now Trump has thrown down a gauntlet that can only lead to a Congressional investigation into Obama.  Hmmmm.

So many data points its impossible to create a readable diorama.

And, oh this is choice, on March 15th, the federal government will reach it's limit of 20 trillion debt.  So Trump and reps either have to pass a new law increasing debt, which of course after 20 trillion votes to raise the debt limit to 20 trillion by dems, they will vote not to raise the debt and then blame republicans for out of control spending.  Or Trump can say, nope buck stops here, enough is enough and we will immediately start cutting federal spending and have rolling layoffs of the massive bureaucracy and now the snowflakes will be joined by all the federal employees protesting Trump, along with the Federal Reserve who's job it is to put the US into total unrecoverable bankruptcy.

Snowflakes, ask yourself one simple question, why, in 2008, did Obama refer to Bush increasing the debt from 5 trillion to 10 trillion as being treasonous, (despite the fact that in four years in Senate Obama voted yes to every spending bill and spending increase): and yet has president Obama increased the debt from 10 to 20 trillion in 8 years - why does the media give him a pass for overspending and doubling the debt all the other presidents created in US History?

This is what I am talking about you are brainwashed, programmed, and you don't even care.

Would it be tacky to start a pool on what season/year the powers that be take out Trump?

Because that is where this is headed.  The tie breaker will be correctly picking the correct patsy.  Whom will the elites want to setup as the assassins of Trump?  Will it be a Russian?  Syrian?  Chinese?  Bad bets would be snowflakes, illegal alien mexicans.  Because the purpose of the elimination of Trump will be a war; Trump being elected ruined the plans for a war with Russia.

I wonder how all the snowflakes who will celebrate the assassination of our US president will feel the next morning when they get their draft notices to report to the army for the war with Russia?

I hear her voice in the morning hour as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong,
West Virginia,
Mountain Mamma, take me home
Country roads

THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY IS A TOTAL FAILURE

Donald Trump is in office now for over 72 hours, and today when I went to the store, I saw several mexicans, blacks, and one muslim.  I thought they were going to be picked up and eliminated by now?

And then I find out those millions of women who were protesting over the weekend actually safely returned home, proving Trump is a total fake.

And Ashley Judd, poor woman.  Had to give a speech to millions of women and didn't have her therapy dog with her: strange how someone like her needs a therapy dog to ride on a plane or sit thru a sporting event but then tries to give a speech to millions of onlookers without the dog.  I always thought she was one of the best looking women in Follywood and as long as she stayed healthy would have age beautifully - apparently, she or her therapy dog thought otherwise because that poor gal has either botoxed or lifted herself to the point I didn't even actually recognize her initially.

Probably botox, because it seems to have seeped into her brain.  Can you imagine accusing a guy of sexual desires towards his own daughter?  Why, if she'd been a guy named Ash Judd, Trump would be totally entitled to punch him in the mouth.  But being female he won't, nor will others approve of him punching a woman in the mouth, even when she deserves it, but then that's because we are chauvinistic brutes - why a true 21st century man would  probably punch her under the equal rights statue.

Which begs another question, in a culture that seems to think men and women, women and women, men and men, men dressed was women with men, men dressed as women with women dressed as men, women dressed as trees with men dressed as cats and just about every other combination you can think of is perfectly okay so why would they be so against Trump and his daughter if both were consenting adults?  Double standard?  Ashley needs reprogramming it looks like.

Sorry I haven't posted anything for two months, I wasn't really upset that no one knows I probably came closer to predicting the election than anyone else, certainly in the top 1%, just didn't feel like writing anything.

But, since this blog started out about a 55 year old guy who just spent 4 years caring for a parent dying of Alzheimers and what the two of use went thru and now having to start life over at 55, bankrupt, broke, out of work and racing against being homeless, who finally finds a job and now must start rebuilding his life, this is kind of a cool time.

Got my paycheck with all the overtime and double time and bought new living room furniture.  Finally getting rid of the love seat that was repeatedly used to soak up whatever escaped my dad on a daily basis as well as I suspect the dog using it, figuring I'd blame grandpa for it and now have coming tomorrow a real sofa I can stretch out on and fall asleep watching TV.

Guess I'll have to get a TV now.  Nah.

And I almost have enough, and will have enough, to buy a new Specialized AWOL bike in two months.  This is the bike I will train on, pull apart and put back together several times, and use for my 2020 trip across the US to take my mom's ashes back home.  Well, providing I don't get killed by a car riding the bike before then.

Little results of research, did you know that few helmets will protect you from concussions?  Bike helmets don't, obviously football helmets don't either.  There is one company in Sweden that makes this neck airbag system that has little monitors all over and when it detects an accident occurring inflates a bag over your entire head and neck and will protect against impacts, skull splits, and concussions.  Unfortunately, they only work once, cost 300 bucks, and you will probably still get a ticket for not having a helmet on unless you get tricky and shave your head and paint it red or something to fool the cops driving by.

But the point is, the old stuff going and new stuff coming in, paying cash, and it's like a turn of the page, a moving on from what was to what is.  Only took 3 1/2 years.

So now that the furniture is replaced, the bike is about bought, and being a simple man with simple needs I am now, at 59, going to start a 401k, again.  I debated this the past year, it's really too little too late, but then how do I know that?  What if I can keep doing this job, with this company, another 10 years, then 10% plus 6% match and if Trump is successful like a Reagan, that 16% for 10 years might actually provide enough.

Smell a lot of 'ifs' in that plan.  But, then, not really a plan, because after spending 4 years as a caretaker of Alzheimer's, I don't kid myself about control.

Anyone catch the new Sherlock Series 4?  First episode uses the Appointment at Samaria or Sammara as the centerpiece of the story.  Thought that was cool, especially the line at the end when a road turns to a river with only one course you cannot change.

Well, if any imaginary readers are still out there, promise it won't be two months until the next post.

Judge not this race by empty remains
Do you judge God by his creatures when they are dead
For now the lizard shedded its tail
This is the end of man's long union with Earth

From life alone to life as one
Think not now your journey done
For though your ship be sturdy
No mercy has the sea
Will you survive on the ocean of being
Come ancient children hear what I say
This is my party counsel for you on your way

Sadly now your thoughts turn to the stars
Where we have gone you know you never can go
Watcher of the skies watcher of all
This is your fate alone, this fate is your own

CALLED THE ELECTION MAP


Hmmm, so I called the election map in October, except for Colorado, and a whopping 25 visits in the past week, why do I bother.

SPOILED LITTLE BRATS

When Carter lost to Reagan in 1980, I was at work.  Lots of people depressed at work, waitresses mostly, but nobody needed a time out, a coloring book and play dough to work thru it.  We probably just hung out at the bar after work and got drunk, then woke up the next day and went on with our lives.

College students then.

Now, apparently, not making this up my imaginary millions of readers, but they seriously were given coloring books and play dough to work thru their feelings.  And then they go out, block traffic, break windows of small business owners, burn cars, and beat the crap out of white people.

Spoiled little brats - if you ever needed more evidence that not spanking your kids when they were young and did something wrong, just look at these 'little kids' acting like 5 year olds in a grocery store when mommy won't let them have a candy bar.

And god forbid someone point out to school psychologists and sociologists that maybe raising a generation where 'no body loses' might not have been such a good idea??????

Trump's first day in office should pass a law allowing adults to spank college age kids who didn't learn the lesson when they were five.  Or how about police with paddles, just lining up the protestors, make them touch their toes and smack their asses with the paddle with the holes in it to prevent air pressure from slowing down impact.

Back in 1960, the Yankees played the Pirates in the world series - yes, this is going somewhere, just be patient - and it is considered one of the great world series' in history.  Pirates won 4 games to 3, but what was special was the Yankees outscored the Pirates in the series like twice as many runs.  See, the Pirates won each game by a run, but got clobbered by 8, 10, 12 runs in the three losses so the Yankees ended up with twice as many runs but lost.

I suppose these Hillary protestors think it would have been fair to award the WS to the Yankees since they got the most runs.

Here is the thing, once again.  Take out CA and Trump wins the popular vote by 2m as well as an Electoral College slaughter.  Add the CA votes which totaled more than twice just about every other state in the union, and Hillary wins the popular vote by 1/2 million.

But that is not fair!

Spank the brat.

It is fair, it's the rules, the rules are there to prevent  a few states dictating to the rest of the country how they are going to live - same reason CA as two senators and WY has two senators - so it's equal. Balanced, think yoga spoiled little brats.

Now people are publicly, which is against the law but then this is Obama where there is no law worthy of his attention, but now people are saying that they should kill Trump before the Electoral College votes in December so they have to elect Hillary.

Hey, Electoral College voters, think about this.  If Trump is shot and if you do then vote for Hillary rather than Pence, then every four years the president elect in early November will need to be immediately moved to a secret underground bunker for six weeks because the opposition will always try to kill the winner so their candidate gets in.

Spoiled little brats with whiskers and the right to drink and vote.  Kids that were raised in day care, never spanked for misbehavior, played games with no winners or losers, spent their lives texting rather than having conversations and now they are adults and totally unprepared for the reality of living.  Like a generation of schizophrenics that one moment wake up from the fantasy and realize reality isn't anything like the fantasy.

I wonder, in four years, if we do have a job boom, and all these kids can find jobs that don't involve name tags and latte's, if they will appreciate Trump or if they will just think one thing has nothing to do with the other.  And will they ever realize how close this country was coming to a shooting war with Russia where all those little spoiled brats would have been drafted and sent to fight in a war and been shocked to discover after being shot, there was no reset button to start the game over again.

How unfair would that have been, you can almost see them complaining to God at the gates of Heaven and telling Him how screwed up he is and how unfair it is and demand a recount.

 Forest fire, coming this way
You decide which way to run
I know i'll be running for it
cause its gonna catch us anyway

And i'll prepare myself for what could be
the greatest fire of the century
and if this place should burn
then i'm ready to go
no way i wont have to face it on my own

I'll be standing, on the corner waiting
for the sky to open up
I know it could be any moment
and its gonna take all that i am

And i'll prepare myself for what could be
the greatest fire of the century
and if this place should burn
then i'm ready to go
no way i wont have to face it on my own

And i'll prepare myself for what could be
the greatest fire of the century
and if this place should burn
then i'm ready to go
no way i wont have to face this on my own

TRUMP ELECTION NEWS FLASH AND THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Well, imaginary readers, you got to be just a little impressed.  Back on Oct 23rd I posted what I thought the map would look like and if it weren't for the illegal aliens and homeless voters in Colorado taking it blue, barely, I would have hit it dead solid perfect.

When I finally went to bed early this morning, Trump still had the popular vote but I knew it was not enough to overcome CA voters and that is why there is an electoral college.

See, back at the beginning, the founding fathers figured out that Boston, NY, and Philly had more people in them than the rest of the original 13 colonies; so if it were just a popular vote, those big cities would dictate to the entire country who won an election.

So they came up with this cool electoral college to prevent it from happening then and prevent it from happening now.  For those who think it should just be a popular vote, let me tell you what will happen.

No politician will ever visit NH, VT, KY, TN MS, LA, AR, KS, MS, NB, ND, SD, WI, MN, ID, WY, UT, NV, NM, AZ - why would they?  Total waste of time, just win LA and SF and you've completely off set all those states in voting.  Add Boston, NY, Philly, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and maybe Denver and you have a complete run away.  Promise them everything, screw the rest of the country.

But with the Electoral College, NY, and Alaska were important, MN was important - by the time CA came in, it was over baby!!!

Now CA want's to leave the union and I'm thinking, can we help you pack?

But something happened last night that is important.  Look at the votes in FL, PA, and MI - look how close they are - and Hillary didn't want a recount?

So here is what happened.  Podesta makes the announcement and in the meantime Hillary is talking to Trump and here is the deal that was struck.  Hillary will concede the election, no recounts, and Trump agrees to not aggressively pursue prosecuting Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea and they can ride off into the sunset with their 100's of millions.

That was the deal that took place last night while America slept.

The Clinton's get away with it, for now, and Trump is president.

Trump's first deal as president, fair trade if you ask me.

Oh, yea, that earlier post about sheriffs monitoring polling for illegals, I made that up.  And since Trump won I will declare that post prevented millions of illegal from going to the voting booth yesterday and Trumps' victory is all my doing.  Too much?

COUNTY SHERIFFS TO MONITOR POLLING BOOTHS ON TUESDAY TO ARREST ILLEGAL ALIENS ATTEMPTING TO VOTE IN THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

There have been a lot of shocking stories the last three months, but nothing floored me more than President Obama being interviewed by a young woman, apparently admitting she is not a legal citizen of the USA, and being asked about illegals voting, do she and others have to worry about being arrested or brought to justice by the federal government if they vote?

And our president, the man who taught constitutional law, said that no, anyone who votes is a citizen.  Did anyone put a This Side Up on his copy of the Constitution?  Or does his just say This Page is Intentionally Left Blank?

Fortunately, this blogger has come across an email sent to me by weekileeks where county sheriffs in over 10 states are outraged by this video of Obama telling it's okay for illegal aliens to vote in US elections and are planning to have county sheriff deputies at all county polling locations on Tuesday with the specific purpose to arrest any non US citizen for attempting to vote in our elections.

County sheriffs from Texas, NM, AZ, UT, NV, CO, FL, NC, SC, MN MI, OH, and PA have vowed to do what they legally can to prevent illegal aliens from voting in this election and will monitor polling places Tuesday specifically looking for illegal aliens attempting to vote.  Yippee!  There is hope!!!!

The bad news is on Tuesday, with all the country sheriff deputies monitoring voting centers, no deputies will be available to ticket speeders for driving 3 mph over the posted limits.

In a related story, Chelsea Clinton has announced after an extensive audit of the Clinton Foundation, which she paid herself 15 million dollars to undertake, has determined there are no cases of illegal spending or no cases of accepting illegal donations as reported by the 'very bad alt right wing media who is being very mean to my mommy'.

The list of very important wealthy people who make their living smiling capped teeth into a TV camera while reading what other people have written for them who are threatening to leave the US if Trump is elected just keeps growing causing readers of People Magazine to worry if Trump is elected and all these people actually leave, what they will read while sitting on the toilet?

So Hollywood has improved on a great SciFi movie by making a modern TV show based on robotic naked cowboys having orgies in the new TV series Brokeback Systemboard, er, wait West Hollywood, no wait, Westworld - now leaving the rest of the world to think the Mountain Time Zone of the US is nothing but a bunch of gay cowboys.

Have you been to Denver lately?

Dilbert creator has decided since the government is already taking 50% of his income and if he dies will take another 50% of what he has left that if Hillary wins he's just going to quit working and live off his money until he goes broke and not pay anymore taxes which I thought was a good idea until I realized my total savings would last 13 days and then I'd be a homeless person making twice what I do now in government benefits and thinking 'huh'?

Which, when you think about it, might actually be the thing to do if Hillary wins.  Shut down your businesses, quit your jobs - they are trying to steal them from you anyways with illegal aliens and off shoring, so just close it up, liquidate it all, and let the 150m working people stop working for a year, take the year off, and shut down the flow of cash to governments, starve them.  Nobody working, nobody to hire illegals, do everything barter, fix the plumbing in return for fixing the computer, no cash changing hands, no trucks or trains moving food, shop local, this for that, just for a year and starve the system dry.

Dreaming again.





The world is too heavy,
too big for my shoulders,
come take the weight off me, now.

Thousands of answers,
for one simple question,
come take the weight off me, now.

I'm like a kid who just won't let it go,
Twisting and turning the colours in rows,
I'm so intensified that's what it is.
This is my Rubik's Cube
And all i can't figure it out.

We're lost in the playground,
Late night nostalgia,
open the sky for me, now.

Friends round the fire,
Outside in December
Open the sky for me now.

I'm like a kid who just won't let it go,
Twisting and turning the colours in rows,
I'm so intensified thats what it is.
This is my Rubik's Cube
And all i can't figure it out.

Credits roll over,
the edge of the horizons,
but I haven't discovered yet.

I'm like a kid who just won't let it go,
Twisting and turning the colours in rows,
I'm so intensified thats what it is.
This is my Rubik's Cube
And all I can't figure it out.

NOT WORTH AN EXTRA BUCK AN HOUR

I don't often talk about work here, well, because I don't.

But part of the purpose of this blog was to talk about what it is like starting life over in your 50's, after you care for a loved one dying and are left bankrupt and having to start from scratch.

For my long term imaginary readers, you know what I went through, spending 8 months unemployed after my dad died and then finally landing a job with a really great company.  Doing what I did 30 years ago.  Starting pay was what I made, 30 years ago - except it has 1/2 the buying power.

But for 2.5 years I've been plugging away and the job is fine.  Have  a great manager now who pretty much lets me be me and doesn't get in my way, sees that whatever I am doing is working with customers big time and just let's me be an outlier.

Reviews came up recently, lets see how I can word this, graded in three areas, say 1 2 or 3  and most people get 2's, you are in trouble if you get 3's and I got two 2's and one 1 and when it came to a raise I got, well, less than a buck an hour.  Life in the 21st century.  Hard to get excited about it, though as I will point out I have a job, it does pay okay though I'm still technically below the median income in Colorado.

Back in the 80's, when I got my first phone support job, owner came to me after 3 months and increased my pay by 4k because I was doing so well, then another 4k at my one year review.  Somewhere along the line, people have mistakenly replaced 'k' with '%'.  When did that happen?

But this is where life's questions come up.  After 2.5 years with this great company, would companies out there in the world who wouldn't give me the time of day now find me attractive?  But then why would I go to them?  Don't I owe this company my loyalty, since they kept me from being homeless?

So it comes down to making a choice of riding out life with this company, making much less than I use to, happily accepting under 5% raises each year or do I get ambitious again?  Part of me wants to be ambitious again, yet another part of me is like settle down, ride the wave, you need to work till you die, what is the hurry, ride this as long as you can.  Grass isn't always greener, the economy sucks still, stay put, stay under the radar.

These are the things you have to think about as you approach 60.

Just tonight, I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass, I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely man really me?

Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days

Through the door, there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts, the dreams are still the same


SARA MCLACHLAN ON A FALL SATURDAY AFTERNOON

One of my guilty pleasures is listening to Sara McLachlan, and something about a sunny fall afternoon, leaves are falling, and listening to Afterglow Live.

Listen as the wind blows
from across the great divide,
Voices trapped in yearning,
memories trapped in time,
The night is my companion
and solitude my guide,
Would I spend forever here
and not be satisfied?

And I would be the one
to hold you down,
kiss you so hard,
I'll take your breath away
and after I'd wipe away the tears,
Just close your eyes dear


How can a world that produces life and talent like that produce an election like this?  And yes, I know Possession is not on the Afterglow Live album, work with me here, okay?

Can this get any funnier?  I mean this week Michael Moore came out and said something that nailed it, and I'm thinking how crazy is this when Michael Moore makes sense?

Moore began by saying he knew a lot of people in Michigan who were going to vote for Trump who “were not racists or rednecks” but were sick of their jobs being offshored to places like Mexico.
Trump’s promise to slap a 35% tariff on Ford cars made in Mexico and sent back to America was “music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” added Moore.

“Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting and it’s why every beaten down, worthless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump,” said Moore, arguing that Trump was the “human molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for – the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.”

According to Moore, these disenfranchised Americans have lost everything they have but still enjoy the great equalizer – the right to vote – and they will utilize it by putting “a big f**king X in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives – Donald J. Trump.”

The film maker noted that “the elites who ruined their lives hate Trump, corporate America hates Trump, Wall Street hates Trump, the career politicians hate Trump, the media hates Trump.”
Asserting that his voters will “get to blow up the whole God damn system,” Moore concluded by saying, “Trump’s election is going to be the biggest f**k you recorded in human history, and it will feel good.”  (copied from the infowar.com website because I'm the only person left on the internet who actually sources)

I mean does that drive the nail home with a single blow of the hammer or what?

Through this world I've stumbled
so many times betrayed,
Trying to find an honest word,
to find the truth enslaved,
Oh you speak to me in riddles
and you speak to me in rhyme
My body aches to breathe your breath,
you words keep me alive,

And I would be the one
to hold you down,
kiss you so hard,
I'll take your breath away
and after I'd wipe away the tears,
Just close your eyes dear


And now we find out that Anthony Weiner and his now ex wife Huma were not only the strangest most bizarre couple in history of coupledom, but apparently great librarians of porn and classified information from the federal government.  Huma apparently did what most of us have done and emailed home stuff to work on that night, except most of us are not emailing highly classified information to a computer shared by a spouse who likes to flirt and who knows what with 15 year old girls over the internet.

I'm sorry, maybe I'm out of touch, but what the hell is this society's fascination with sending naked pictures of yourself - somehow we all woke in a world where everyone thinks they are hot and I'm sorry, we are not.  Maybe 1 out of 100 are hot and I'd bet I wouldn't even find pictures of, oh crap, my total lack of knowledge of who is famous in Hollywood is shining thru, I can't think of anyone.  The point is, Weiner, you ain't hot, neither is your ex wife.  WOULD EVERYONE STOP SENDING CREEPY NAKED PICTURE OF THEMSELVES, PLEASE?

However, by hot I mean attractive naked, right now the two of you are burning hot.  Would not be surprised to see a news story soon of a murder suicidy thing involving the two of you where Vince Foster leaves a business card, if you get my drift.

Can you imagine the wrath of Hillary on whom she blames for losing this election?

you live in a church
where you sleep with voodoo dolls
and you won't give up the search
for the ghosts in the halls
you wear sandals in the snow
and a smile that won't wash away
can you look out the window
without your shadow getting in the way


I almost rented All The Presidents Men this weekend, but decided it would be too sad to watch.  What a shame what happened to the media in this country, what once could bring a president down or disqualify a person to be president and now, with Hillary, it's obvious nothing as long as you can pay off the right people, have blackmail evidence against others, and a yapping puppy dog media willing to go along for a tickle behind the ears occasionally.

I think all democrats should write in the name of Gary Hart for president as an apology.

It's becoming blatantly obvious to me that neither Hillary or Trump, will fulfill the 4 years in office.  Hillary is guaranteed to be indicted and impeached for crimes and Trump will fall to some patsy shooter organized by our shadow government, guaranteeing Pence or Kaine will fall in line with the globalist agenda.

Forget the new furniture, time to add 6 months of emergency food, buy some silver coins, and another 250 rounds of ammo, and get ready to batten down the hatches, we are in for some evil times coming our way folks.

Not even Sara can get me out of this funk.

Into this night I wander,
it's morning that I dread,
Another day of knowing of
the path I fear to tread,
Oh into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride,
Nothing stands between us here
and I won't be denied

And I would be the one
to hold you down,
kiss you so hard,
I'll take your breath away
and after I'd wipe away the tears,
Just close your eyes dear

A LETTER TO HILLARY VOTERS

This is an open letter to all those thinking of voting for Hillary Clinton and why you should not.

Last night I watched a rerun of a Dr. Who episode, the one with Simon Pegg as the guest star, where this giant ship orbits the earth, providing all the news to the planet, all designed to keep the people passive and under control.  How close we are to this today.  I mean, the news media in this country is every bit as fraudulent as Baghdad Bob or the old Soviet News Agency.

First, let's talk Wikileaks.  Are you paying attention to them?  If you get all your 'news' from the NYT, WP, WSJ, CBSNBCABCCNNMSNBC, GOOGLE/YAHOO,  the answer is no.  So let me quickly highlight an overview of what is in the wikileaks stuff, which comes directly from the emails of Hillary and people working for Hillary.


  1. The mainstream media, on this blog known as DemBitches, is totally in bed with the democratic party to the point of writing stories given to them by democrats or showing their stories to the powers of the democratic party before turning them in at work to make sure they are approved.
  2. Pay for play.  I mentioned yesterday the sweet deal Hillary worked out with Russia for 20% of the Uranium in this country and all Russia had to do was contribute a few million to the Clinton Foundation and give Bill this really good million dollar speaking tour in Russia.
  3. The Clinton Foundation collected millions and millions of dollars for relief aid in Haiti.  Less than 6% of the money collected was distributed in Haiti.  However, many companies were given millions to build hospitals, schools, homes, and roads in Haiti by the Clinton Foundation and as of yet not a brick has been laid.
  4. How the democratic party stole the primary election from Bernie Sanders.
I will stop right there.  Four simple reasons, documented in thousands of emails, that show large corruption.  And this is who you want?  This is the America you dream of?  This is not conspiracy theory people, this is documented for your reading pleasure if you take a moment out of NFL Sunday or from taking your 1,343,048 selfie to post to Facebook.

For the life of me, I can't understand how any person who was for Bernie Sanders can say now they will vote for Hillary.  She stole the primary election, the press worked for them to bury Sanders, she is on record calling Sanders supporters all sorts of variety of losers.  IT'S ALL DOCUMENTED IN THE EMAILS PEOPLE.   

Let me put it this way, there were two candidates in this election year that were going to shake rattle and roll the establishment and corruption; Bernie and Donald.  If Bernie had won the democratic nod and Cruz or Rubio or Kasich had won the republican nod, I'd be writing blogs supporting Bernie.  But to have that passion for Bernie and now walk into the voting booth and vote for Hillary is to give up, give in, and bend over and shout 'thank you sir, may I have another?" 

What will four years of Hillary be like?  What will America become under Hillary?  Let's look at what she's said.

  1. Immigration.  The 30 million illegal aliens in this country will become citizens.  In fact, Hillary, in a speech to Goldman Sacs, dreams of a world where there are no borders, one big hemisphere where people can work and move around all they want.  That is her dream, is that what you want?  This will not raise the standard of living to the rest of the hemisphere to what America is today, it will lower the standard of living in the USA and Canada to what it is in the poorest parts of the hemisphere.  Is this what you want?  Because this is what you are going to get.
  2. H-1B.  A pet peeve of mine.  Law allows corporations who cannot fill highly technical jobs with Americans to subcontract with companies in India or China to bring in those highly trained low paid workers from overseas to fill those gaps.  Says right in the law that corporations cannot use H-1B to replace American workers with low paid alternatives.  How is this working out?  Corporations absolutely love this law.  Corporations want it expanded.  Hillary speaks glowingly of the two companies in India most corporations are using and those two companies showered cash into her campaign and The Clinton Foundation.  So what is the problem?  Well, everyone is ignoring that "cannot use H-1B to replace American workers". The corporations are ignoring it and the justice department under Obama is ignoring it and over the last eight years hundreds of thousands of Americans have not only lost their jobs but they are literally 'forced' to train their replacements if they want any kind of severance pay.  Twenty plus years with a company and if you don't train your replacement, out the door with two weeks pay.  Now hear this:  Hillary plans to expand this law.  Hillary plans to expand it's usage.  So when you vote for Hillary, I hope and pray in 2017 or 2018 you will show up at work and be told you are being replaced by some bloke from India, you will have to suffer the humiliation of training the bloke, and then you can write the president and watch her laugh at you.
  3. There are 96,000,000 unemployed people in this country between the ages of 18 and 65.  There are around 150,000,000 people working between the ages of 18 and 65.  But wait, you cry, that can't be right!  Unemployment is only 5%!!!  Well, quick lesson for you.  The unemployment rate only measures the people collecting an unemployment check, once your 26 weeks are up, you don't have a job?  Tough, you are no longer considered unemployed by the government.  That 96,000,000 is about 25,000,000 more than it was in the 90's and 2000's.  For eight years, that number has hardly moved in any direction.  That is the Obama economic plan result.  Low growth, high unemployment.  And Hillary says she is going to continue the plan, with a few modifications.
  4. ObamaCare becomes Working Person Pays for Everyone's HealthCare.  See, here is a little secret.  ObamaCare was never meant to succeed.  It was meant to fail.  We were blatantly lied to; remember keep your doctor?  They knew that wasn't true - documented.  Remember cost less than cable?  A policy has just about now doubled in cost, more than doubled the out of pocket from what it was.  They KNEW it would implode and the solution will be universal single payer healthcare.  Colorado is about to vote on that state wide with a 10% payroll tax to pay for it.  And thus the problem, remember #1?  150 million working, 96 million not working?  That means the tax will require, and have to be high enough for the 150 million to not only pay for their health care but also the health care of 96 million plus those under 18 and over 65.  And by the way, notice anything else?   A single person will pay the same % as the married guy with a wife and four kids at home - that fair?  Are you working now?  Do a little math and take out 10% of your take home pay from each check.  What is that?  $100 bucks, $150?  That is how much less you will have to spend in the economy, which means what?  Slower economy, fewer jobs, see the slippery slope here people? (Technically, in Colorado, 3.5% is out of paycheck and 6.5% is paid by employer, but that is an additional 6.5% the company is paying for you and 6.5% that you will never see in a raise)
  5. Of course, history has taught us many things, well, for those who pay attention to it.  And Hillary does have a plan, it's war with Russia.  What this planet needs, she thinks,  is a good world war to cull the populations of the America's, Europe, Asia, Russia, Africa, and the middle east.  Call me a nut, but remember if you live, you read it here first.  Hillary getting elected will mean a war with Russia and I hate to say it, but we won't win that war.  Not saying Russia will win it either, cause when it happens there will be no winners.  Unfortunately, megalomaniacs always think they will survive, so Hillary thinks we can start the war, bomb the shit out of Russia, China, and stop them from hitting us though Europe, Japan, S. Korea will probably take a few hits with minor damage in this country to NY, Detroit, and a few other cities, heck, Hillary would probably nuke them herself to clear out the deadwood and then we would be able to manufacture again - hey, not making this up, this is actually the war game plans they play.  Think I'm nuts?  Russia just ran a war scenario where they attempted to move 40 million people out of the cities to the in mountain shelters they've spent the last 20 years building.
  6. By the way, if a nuclear war doesn't bother your liberal wine tasting ketchup on your hotdog little brain, just remember a nuclear war kills trees, birds, field mice and the speckled peckered salamanders too.  And we too have those underground hiding places but you and I are not invited and will be shot trying to get to them.
  7. Do you enjoy reading websites and blogs?  Well, kiss most of them goodbye.  This blog site will be shut down for sure, well, eventually, it's probably flying under the radar but they will get around to it eventually.  Because Hillary envisions a world where the alternative media is gone, where gun ownership by people not in the elite or defense of the elite, will be outlawed, where corporations rule, where the media and government are one and the same.
I feel sorry for millennials, I'm old.  I am just about to complete my 6th decade on the planet.  I've lived, loved, lost, succeeded, failed, laughed, cried, and rested many times over.  I watch the millennials run like lemmings towards the cliff, I guess this is my chance to say stop, but it's wasted, I know.  There is an east wind coming, as Sherlock would say.  But most will never see it coming until it gets over them and then wonder what the hell happened.

MY 50TH ANNUAL ELECTION PREDICTION!!!!

Yes, it's that time imaginary readers when I stick my neck out and make my election prediction for the next presidential election.  Unfortunately, I've never been right, but I don't let failure after failure stop me from looking like a blooming idiot once again.

That being said, all these predictions are based upon one false premise.  That the 30,000,000 illegal aliens in this country right now will not be voting.  This premise is why I am never correct in my predictions, because truth be told, millions and millions of illegal aliens who are not able to vote legally do vote in our elections and many more than once.  So when predicting how states like AZ, CO, MI, TX and others will go, it only takes 3 million illegal aliens to change one or two states from republican to democrat.

Nor can I understand what the hell the people of Utah are doing.  It seems there is a 3rd party candidate in Utah that is polling 30% of the vote and might actually win the state, thus removing their 6 electoral votes from Trump.  Wouldn't that be a kick, if the election is decided in Clinton's favor because the morons of Utah voted for some slick hick in their state and we get 4 years of Clinton instead of 4 years of Trump; 30 years of liberal supreme court decisions all because the people of Utah went total moron.

Remember this little fact: If not for Ross Perot in 1992, Bill Clinton would never have been elected president (Bill Clinton in two elections, never got to 50% of the vote - in fact, in 2000, when Bush lost the popular vote, he still had a higher % of the vote than Clinton ever got).  The point of this is, Perot's 3rd party run gave us two terms of Clinton and now Utah may allow another Clinton in office with a 3rd party vote.

But, okay, here we go with the electoral map predictions!!!!!


Okay, the first map is my prediction of what this election will look like with no illegal alien multiple voting democratic systems working so it's a relatively free and accurate election.  Michigan and Pennsylvania will go Trump along with Florida and Colorado.







Now this next map is more interesting, assuming Colorado, Michigan, PA and NV go Clinton, what we have here is a 269 to 269 tie.  Talk about a cluster bomb of epic proportions.  Picture this further, a tie between the two, let's say Trump wins popular vote, and the senate is tied 50/50 after the election.


Can you say civil war?  What would happen is if the new senate votes 50/50, Biden would cast the vote for Clinton and the tie with the fewer popular votes would be president.  Or, let's say Utah goes third party and now the vote is Clinton 269 and Trump 263 with Utah's 6 going to a third party.  Trump wins popular vote.  Senate is 51/49 republican.  Think the democrats are going to be happy with the outcome?


Now the pea under the mattress in all this is Maine, which it looks like right now is going to split.  Their votes of 4 but they are split 3/1, meaning, right now in polling, Clinton is leading in the areas that get the 3 votes, Trump in the areas that have the 1 vote, so if this map happens, then Trump would win 270 to 268.

But, once again, the joker in the deck is illegal alien voting and how FL, TX AZ, CO, MI and other states could see the election turn on illegal aliens voting once, twice, three times.

Frankly, Trump could have run a much better campaign.  Wikileaks has provided so much information, so much detail of the corruption of Hillary and the Clinton Foundation.  As Secretary of State, she brokers a deal with Russia for 20% of the Uranium in the United States.  The Russian companies contribute over 100 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.  Bill gets a multi million dollar speaking tour in Russia.  And all the media Dembitches can talk about is Donald Trump cornering Mary Sue Finkelstein in the 3rd grade on the playground and kissing her.

I don't know my imaginary readers, I've got this list of things to do and buy coming up.  Was looking at getting a new winter coat, mine is over 25 years old now, new furniture for the living room, and the catalytic converter finally fixed on my car with the extra paycheck and overtime I'll earn the next two months.  If Hillary is elected, then I'm getting a new 9mm conceal carry Walther, ammo, my permit to cancel carry, and maybe another 6 months of emergency food supplies plus extra bags of dog food, a good 4 season tent, sleeping bag and other supplies like a bag of old silver quarters for barter.

Did you catch the comments by the British General yesterday?  Basically, he said that war with Russia is on the horizon, that the US has basically already declared the war, and that the brilliant idea to let the baltic states into the NATO has guaranteed the coming war and when it's over, life on earth as we've known it will be over.

If this nation elects Hillary, all 50 states may soon be red, with the blood of 300 million people.  On the plus side though, all those illegal aliens will run back to Mexico and we won't have to worry about them anymore.

So my prediction?  Trump wins and Hillary becomes president due to 30 million illegal aliens voting, the borders will be removed and we will all be speaking spanish, chinese, aramaic or russian by this time 2020, well, if any of us are still alive.

Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble. Give a whistle.
And this'll help things turn out for the best.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the light side of life.


If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle. That's the thing.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life,


For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.

Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.
So,...

Always look on the bright side of death,
Just before you draw your terminal breath.

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke. It's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And...

ALL THE PRESIDENT'S BITCHES

While most of the world is massively upset with Donald Trump using the 'P' word 11 years ago, Wikileaks has been releasing thousands and thousands of emails and, well, there are tons of things to talk about, but the one thing that shines throughout the emails is how mainstream media reporters are totally owned by Clinton's and the Democrats.

I wonder what Woodward and Bernstein think about all of this.

As a young lad, I remember those Nixon years, the stories in the papers and the news, the downfall and resignation of Nixon.  I read the book All The Presidents Men when it came out, saw the movie and unlike millions, did not want to change my major to be a journalist.

Thank heavens.

Woodward and Bernstein dug thru things and uncovered corruption at the highest levels of government and brought down a president.  Millions were motivated by their efforts, book, and the movie and majored in journalism, dreaming of greatness, dreaming of bringing down powerful corrupt politicians.

And how does that story end?  Those millions became DemBitches.

DemBitches who go out of their way to grease the life for democrats, especially like the Clintons.
DemBitches who provide Hillary with debate questions ahead of time, DemBitches who write stories and let the Clinton's read it first, DemBitches who help spread the lies of a corrupt couple.

Imagine Woodward and Bernstein providing Nixon with everything they had, writing stories supporting Nixon.  And if it were not for Wikileaks, nobody would know any of this - oh wait, nobody does know anything about this because the DemBitches are talking about it on their shows and in their reports, they got a hot new story of some woman claiming 35 years ago on a plane flight Trump fondled her.

Riddle me this Batman, think back to the 1980's, can you remember who you sat next to on any flight - spouses don't count.  I can't even get a mental image in my head and I only flew twice round trip the entire decade.

So Woodward and Bernstein inspired a whole generation of reporters who gave it up, left their morals and search for truth on the bathroom floor.

The fifth estate is dead. Long live the memory.  We now have a country where half the people pay no attention and 90% of the other half are totally brainwashed by DemBitches.

CAN WE JUST SAY NO? I WANT THE CHAOS!

There is something coming down the path, something barreling towards us, and I don't remember anywhere people saying this is what we want.

Self driving cars.

Hey, I get a handicapped blind paraplegic or elderly person thinking this is a good thing.  But for the rest of us, this really what you want?

Apparently, we won't have a choice, as soon as it gets mass produced, roads will be dedicated to self driving vehicles only, insurance on cars you drive yourself will skyrocket, probably to cover all the accidents self driving cars have, and eventually, we will all give over our lives to the same people that bring us the blue screen of death, wipe out our music libraries with an update, and the great Goog in the net who collects every keystroke you make on your keyboard.

And a host of hackers who will take control of your car and smash it into the nearest inanimate object Her' Hacker desires.  Or governments desire.

Why are we just going along with this?  Why are people not saying NO.

Well, okay, most people are oblivious to what is going on in the world and until it makes them unemployed they keep their heads in their shell watching college football....

Have you seen the predictions?  By early 2020's, Uber Taxis buses trains ferries etc etc etc will all be automated and driven by machines, all programmed by some 30 year old pencil neck living on mountain dew and playing video games when taking a break from coding your cars.

But, they cry, think how much safer the roads will be!  No drunk drivers, no sleepy drivers, no bad drivers, distracted drivers, think how safer that would be - and that is always the argument made - "imagine" and then the Utopia: how can you be against that?

I will tell you why.  Because when I go out to get in my car, I don't want it telling me where I can go, if I can go or not.  And that is the logical next step in our Utopia.  Hackers will not be the only one controlling your car, so will police, local governments, state governments, and federal governments will have the ability to control where you go, when you can go; probably will pick up other passengers along the way without your consent too.

I'll bet you can't control the radio/TV/Internet in the vehicles either, just sit back and watch what we tell you to watch as we drive you to where we want you to go, when we want you to get there.

And people are just going along with this?  It's always the same, "Imagine for a moment, a Utopia..." and when ever people buy into a Utopia, they by in to slavery, to controlled beings, lives, thoughts.

As always there will be voices screaming against this change, henceforth known as 'nuts' who will stand in the way of progress, stand in the way of a better civilization.

Consider me one of those voices.  Cars mean freedom.  The ability to move from place to place on your own, in your own time, to leave behind the past and go to the future, whatever it may hold.  To take the road less travelled.

And what happens when the computer controlled car kills a kid, a bike rider, whom to you hold responsible?  The programmer, the vehicle?

One article I was reading was discussing the automated car not understanding the nuances of driving, like two vehicles pull up to a stop sign at same time and a driver waves for the other car to go, which made me think how much fun it would be to have four automated cars all pull up to a stop sign and exactly the same moment, each recognizing no one got there first, each thinking the car on the right has the right of way and none will move, thus eventually shutting down the entire traffic system across the country.

People really need to stop, just stop, and think about what is happening in our society these days; not the news stories of riots which is just fodder to keep us distracted, I'm talking about the automation that is soon to eliminate the cooks, waiters, bartenders, retail sales, drivers, etc.  The H-1B workers replacing the college educated accountants, programmers etc, the illegal aliens replacing the laborers, stop and ask yourself, is all this just random chaotic accidents or part of a plan and where does that leave you?  Tens of millions of people with no jobs no income, no homes, all getting into government controlled vehicles to be taken, where?

Well, it will leave you where ever they want you to be, if you can only move around in an automated vehicle programmed by the same people.

We continually sell our freedom of choice for some greater imagined Utopia and eventually we will no longer have any choices in the dark side of Utopia.

Sorry to disturb you, now back to your local college football game.....


Nobody gonna take my car
I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It's gonna break the speed of sound

Ooh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power big fat tyres
And everything

Yeah, it's a wild hurricane
Alright, hold tight
I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my girl
I'm gonna keep her to the end
Nobody gonna have my girl
She stays close on every bend

Ooh she's a killing machine
She got everything
Like a moving mouth body control
And everything

I love her, I need her, I seed her
Yeah, she turns me on
Alright, hold on tight
I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my head
I got speed inside my brain
Nobody gonna steal my head
Now that I'm on the road again

Ooh I'm in Heaven again
I got everything
Like a moving ground, an open road
And everything

I love it and I need it, I seed it
Eight cylinders all mine
Alright, hold on tight
I'm a highway star

TRUTH BE TOLD: BLACK LIVES DON'T MATTER

If time is suppose to be a constant, why does a week off seem to fly by at 5x the speed of a week of work?

Let's face it, black lives don't matter, but then neither do white lives, hispanic lives, asian lives etc etc etc.  I know in campaign seasons, politicians like to act like you and your race are the most important thing in the world, but then after the election they ignore everyone until they need money for reelection.

Remember 8 years ago when The Man from Kenya was elected president - hey, not a birther, just going off of all his appearances and PR stuff in the 90's and early 2000's when HE said he was born in Kenya - but blacks thought they finally had equality and how's that worked out for black america?

Well, you might have gotten a free phone to call someone who cares.  But, nobody does.

Bill Clinton recently came up with a really great idea to resurrect Detroit from the slum that it is; his idea was to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees, give them free homes and jobs that paid to rebuild the homes.  Funny, 8 years as president, he never came up with a job plan like that for blacks.

Nor did Obama.  In fact, just about anyway you measure things, black america is seriously worse off today than they were 8 years ago, well unless you live in Charlotte and managed to grab yourself a new TV, iPhone, microwave, Jordan Airs and whatever else you could carry out of the local stores that were vandalized while protesting the unfair shooting of an armed black man by a black cop because whites are racists.

And that wonderful video of the white guy being dragged, beaten and stripped naked has made gun sales around the country skyrocket this weekend.  Nice job living up to the stereotype you so argue is unfair.

I hope the white guy that was dragged, beaten, stomped and stripped was a racist sob before that happened because if he survives, he will be from now on.

Saw a graph today, sorry, didn't save it, was a bar chart of whites killing blacks, blacks killing whites, whites killing whites, blacks killing blacks, cops shooting whites and cops shooting blacks and guess which of those was the smallest barely readable bar on the chart.......  I'll give you another minute.....that's right, cops shooting blacks.

Let's give the millionaire football players a moment to get off their knee, there we go.

But back to the larger philosophical point of all this; black lives, white lives etc don't really matter.  Let's face it, most of us are little blips in history and will quickly be forgotten the moment we join the majority of humanity in death.  At best we are just part of a continuing series of cause and effects and maybe touched a life here or there but most of us will matter no more than Fred Clausic who died in 1854.

Don't know Fred, me either, made it up, but there might have been a Fred then.

It's like when I was going thru these picture books after my dad died, these old black books with black and white pictures of men and women and I was related to them, no idea who they were, and realized this is the last thing left of them on the planet, these pictures, and I'm tossing them into the garbage and that last thread of having lived on this earth was about to be snipped once and for all.  Took me nearly 4 hours to look thru two books, staring at the photos, wonder who they were, what they did, what they dreamed, how did they live?  And then into the dumpster and it still haunts me to this day.

And so it goes with all of us, we dreamed as youths of being great and being famous and 99.9999% of us never will be, never were meant to be, and are just filler in between historic events.

We just go thru the motions, go thru the days, hoping we don't get sick, don't lose a job, the car starts, the kids are okay, no war breaks out, and we avoid the black riots.

But those hopes are getting harder and harder.  I use to use the simile of we are all in this massive game of musical chairs and we cling to our seats as long as we can and when the music starts we see not one chair disappear about thousands and then the music stops and i've come to the conclusion it doesn't really matter anymore whether you know this is happening or go thru life with this illusion it will never happen to you; it's color blind, sex blind, race blind - we don't matter, no one cares, no one listens, and there is little we can do.

Black Lives Matter is funded by Soros, some blacks are getting seriously wealthy from that, but most are not going to see a dime.  Illegals are being rushed thru naturalization so they can vote for Hillary this fall.  Soros if funding an overseas drive to get 8 million americans living abroad to vote democratic - let's face it, there will be 8 million ballots coming over whether an actual US citizen fills it out is another story, while soldiers ballots will be delayed, dumped and rejected.

It's not that black lives don't matter, it's we don't matter anymore.  Rod Serling, your table is ready.


I found this photograph
Stashed between the old joist walls
In a place where time is lost
Lost behind, where all things fall

Broken books and calendars
Letters script in careful hand
Music too, a standard tune by
Some forgotten big brass band

From the threshold what's to see
Of our brave new century?
The television's just a dream
Radio, silver screen
Big smile for the camera

How did she know?
The moment could be lost forever
Forever more

BLAME GAMES

First, I know, it's been ages since I've posted but here is the problem.

Back in 2012, when I was neck deep in caring for my dad, I posted a ton of blogs on the 3,524 republican debates, the debates between Obama and Romney, and this time around I just didn't feel like adding to the overflow of blogs posting political commentary on a daily basis.

Let's face it, what else is there to talk about?

I'm doing okay, not great, keeping head above water though the 99 Volvo is sucking my bank account dry but not much I can do about it unless I just junk the car and bike everywhere, which may sound like a good idea to some but let me tell you biking or walking 2 miles to a grocery store in a foot of snow and zero degrees is not, nor ever will be, fun.  And I've had enough character building, thank you very much.  But I am two to three years away from being able to afford a new used car.  Which of course, will probably start sucking me dry too.

I wonder if it's just smarter to buy some car for 1000 and run it till it dies, then get another one and just keep doing that over and over.

Work is fine, always feel like there is an axe over my head but I suspect everyone over 50 feels that way these days.

I did want to link to you two articles from Briebart, which I hardly ever read but after reading these two might change my mind about that:

http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/09/18/mcdonalds-hires-foreign-h-1bs-fires-70-american-accounting-staff/

and

and I can't find the other one dammit!

But the article is about one of my pet peeves I've written about before, that damn H-1B and h-2B that specifically states that companies cannot use the thing to replace american workers and company after company are doing just that and our justice department under Obama doesn't do squat about it.

Hillary, well, she wants to double the number of foreign workers under the program.  Trump, wants to end it and prosecute companies that are firing Americans.  Gee, guess who I'm voting for.

I don't know who will write the history of this country, but some of the stuff going on is downright treasonous.  Millions of illegals being brought in for physical blue collar jobs, hundreds of thousands under the H-1B to replace college educated white collar Americans.

Got to make a man wonder exactly what are they expecting to do with 100,000,000 baby boomers and Gen X'ers in the middle class when all the jobs are going to foreigners - is there a plan?  Here is a bet, whatever that plan is, we aren't going to like it.

Anyone else thinking Hillary is more and more becoming like Gollum from Lord of the Rings?
The evil is just eating at her and destroying her from within.  Oh well.

Still waiting to see which of the two end up dead before the election - if Trump wins I hope he goes into hiding and takes the oath inside the Oval Office - hey, call me paranoid but they shot Kennedy, they shot Reagan and the shadow government is going to shoot Trump too.

And probably blame the Russians, which seems to be the new mantra of the elite.  Where did that start?

One day, Trump announces he wants watchers at all the poling places to make sure things are on the up and up, when the president is asked about this, he laughs and says what election fraud, there is no election fraud, (19.000 votes for Obama, zero for anyone else in the Philly area, yeah nothing to see there), and that elections are a state by state thing and the federal government doesn't control them.    But then, like two weeks later, suddenly Washington is all abuzz and Obama is announcing that Homeland Security is going to oversee the elections because the Russians are going to steal the election from Hillary.

Huh?

So I feel better now, the same agency that just admitted they screwed up and nearly 1,000 middle eastern immigrants that were suppose to be deported due to their terrorists ties were in fact granted citizenship and will be voting this November instead of returning to their tents and caves in the deserts.

Yea, feel a lot better about it.

One thing, if I still have any readers left, don't use computer voting, demand a paper ballot.  How I wish everyone voting this November would demand an old fashion ballot and reject the computer voting.


By the way, new browser out, Vivaldi, and it's by the people who originally founded Opera and recently left.  Worth downloading and definitely what should be used instead of Chrome.

Oh, Oh baby don't you know I'm human
Have thoughts like any other one
Sometimes I find myself long regretting
Some foolish thing some little simple thing I've done
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

ONE YEAR OF EXPERIENCE, EIGHT TIMES

As many of my imaginary readers know, I've never been a fan of Obama.  Guy was greased in Illinois each time he ran, judge threw off the competition due to signature irregularities so he cakewalked to the state senate, press spread false story on his opponent he was trailing in the senate primary and by the time they cleared and said 'oops, we were wrong, never mind' Obama was leading and that worked so well they did the same thing again to the republican running against Obama for the senate and this time all they came up with was on the honeymoon, they were drunk and he tried to talk his new wife into some public sex in Paris and he had to resign because, well, you can't have someone in the Senate who wants to have sex with his own wife - the precedent would ruin the whole orgy.

And I will admit, I don't think anyone stepping into the Oval Office on his first day is really prepared for what the job is like, but most tend to learn.  Obama, after 7.5 years in office, still is a rookie and this past week made a major major mistake we will be paying for in the future - well, actually, we will be paying for everything he did in office for years to come but this is a big mistake I can't believe no one told him not to do.

Basically, we 'released 400,000,000' to Iran and they release four prisoners.  100,000,000 per prisoner - do they need to declare that as income on their taxes?

Now the State Department issued a travel warning to Americans not to travel to Iran - was that really necessary, who the hell would travel to Iran - because of the concern of the Iranian government kidnapping them, charging them with crimes and trying to get another 100,000,000 per prisoner.

See the issue?

And if you think Iran is the only country now considering the kidnapping of US Citizens, trumping up false charges and trying to get a few million for their return, you are dreaming.

Obama just opened up hunting season on Americans around the world.

Speaking of paying, if you want to buy a BCBS policy, you can get a 5k deductible and pay 40% after deductible for just 596/month.  When Obama came into office, I had a BCBS plan that was 2500 deductible and 100% after deductible and it was 272 a month.
Ain't ObamaCare great!  Who exactly saved money with this deal?

Now Colorado is taking this head on and this fall on the ballot is a plan called ColoradoCare where everyone in Colorado will be covered and it's just 3.5% payroll tax on the employee and 6.5% to employer, so basically an additional 10% payroll tax to fund universal healthcare for everyone.  Yea, that will work out well, and you can't exempt yourself, as far as I know - well, unless you work for the state or federal government - they are exempt, so basically the need to move from colorado will be coming very soon unless it's voted down this fall.

Jerome Corsi has a new book everyone should read.  It's the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, the hundreds of millions that have gone to that organization and tracking quid pro quo's:  meeting with Sec of State Clinton, contribution to CF, sweet deal overseas follows. Did you know when Hillary became SofS, she had to sign a paper that basically said no foreign donations to her CF and that lasted about a week before millions came piling in from Saudi Arabia.

And their daughter, well don't worry about her, she pulls in 6 million a year to 'run' the Clinton Foundation.

If she wins the election, I shall forever refer to her as Don Clinton, woman makes the mob look legit.
