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.

pulled this from earlier post to expand

Lots of news stories today, but I have a question for you.  What is happening in the Ukraine?  Do you know?  Who's side is what?  Is the government some corrupt organization that people have no freedoms or choice and a freedom loving populace is rising to overthrow the old Soviet warlords?  Or is the government a democratically elected government and after the people of the Ukraine voted recently to NOT join the European Union are outside influences supporting and instigating the riots?

Let's face it, we know know that Egypt, Libya, and Syria were and are not freedom loving people trying to overthrow a bad government.  It's really bad people supplied by the US and others who overthrew a bad government and made the countries much worse.

So is Ukraine really the media fed story of a bad evil warlordy government being tested by nut and berry eating squirrel petting freedom loving people, or is there something more going on here involving money, banks, and stuff?

The president of the Ukraine was democratically reelected, though there were some whispers of voter fraud in the election.  Gee, you would think President Obama would be more supportive of him, seeing as they have so much in common….

There is a video going viral right now of some Ukrainian chick which is really similar to the video a few years ago from Syria, which makes sense, since it turns out the same group that made the Syrian video with faked footages is the same group making this Ukrainian video.  Hmmm.

And is the timing here coincidental, with the Olympics in Russia?  Talk about Putin's hands being tied, though technically Ukraine has been totally independent of Russia since around 1990.  In fact, despite of the girl's pleas in the video, Russia and the Ukraine don't get along very well.

So I seriously question what is going on in the Ukraine being a bunch of freedom loving squirrel petting fruits and nuts peaceniks; I smell outside influences.  World leaders are warning the Uk Government not to attack peaceful protestors, but then watching all the video footage on news channels, I haven't seen too many 'peaceful' protestors.

Gee, I wonder…

All those bullets the US government have purchased, you know those 2 billion and counting orders, has anyone been auditing these purchases?  Do we know exactly how many rounds have been purchased and delivered?  Do we know for sure they are where they are suppose to be?  I would think when you have 2 billion bullets, a few million missing would be hard to pick up on, especially using some massive computer program like SAP, which could be faked out easily.  Oh well…

What amazes me is how absolutely pissed off all these protestors are about not being able to join the European Union.  That is what the protest is about, you know.  Yep, sat on their asses for 70 years under soviet domination but now after 20 years of freedom get pissed off at not being part of the EU.  Would this get the American people off their butts?  US doesn't join EU and millions will take to the streets?

I don't think most americans can even spell EU anymore.

But there is one other lesson from Ukraine.  Now do you understand why the UN and our Government wants to take away our guns?  A government and army with guns can walk all over a populace; a populace with guns don't quite go down so easily, do they.

Wonder where the Ukrainian citizens protesting got all those bullets…..

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right?
All right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan

You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're all doing what we can

But if you want money
For people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
