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.

So with all these war drums banging with Russia does that mean Yakov Smirnoff is poised to make a major comeback?

What is it with democratic presidents?  In the Carter Administration, and I'm not a big basher of Carter mind you, but he gave away the Panama Canal, supposedly back to the Panamanians who immediately upon taking it over in 1999, sold major parts of it to the Chinese.

Then Clinton comes along, gives away all our manufacturing, textile, and service jobs to the 3rd world and not to stop there but sold all of our defense secrets to the Chinese too.  Okay, not ALL of our defense secrets, just enough to allow the Chinese to jump ahead about 30 years from the normal evolution of technology.

By the way, pondering any attention to Bill Maher on theological issues is like taking lesson in marriage fidelity from Bill Clinton.

Now Obama has just given away the internet.  We paid for the internet folks.  Our mom's, dad's and our tax dollars paid for the development of the 'net.  Then we paid for it with our dial up accounts, our ISDN accounts, and now our cable bills.  And Obama just handed control of it to some unknown, unaccountable, foreign group.

So what happens in a year or so when I make some comment that this group finds offensive?  UN soldiers at the door, and it's off to Denmark for trial.

On the other hand, the way Obama is going, giving away the internet won't even be remembered by the time he is through dismantling the country.

Anyone catch the story that Libya was never behind the Lockerbie Scotland bombing?  It was Iran, in retaliation for the shooting down of an Iranian airliner in 1988.  So all these years, we've blamed the Libyans and it turns out most intelligence agencies knew by the late 1990s that it was Iran.

Does anyone remember the blog I wrote about Libya under MK?  How they got all these great things, like free college, a big fat check when they married to buy a home, free medical, cash to buy a car, gas was less than 50 cents, etc etc etc?  Well, how is Libya today?  A total fracking disaster.  Their oil output is about 25% of what it was before the US led overthrow.  Country is really run by gangs now.  Hope and Change.  Want to know what America is going to look like post Obama?  See Libya.  Except speak Chinese.

Except in parts of the Ukraine where they voted this weekend to join the Soviet soon to be reUnion and now America is saying it's not right that the people could vote for that.  Apparently overthrowing governments only counts when you overthrow a successful government that houses and feeds people and replace it with Muslim fanatics who will slaughter Christians, blacks, and drive the economy into the ground.  Like America!

But the good news for millions is the story that soon scientists will be able to implant chips in our brains that will allow us perfect memory and hyper focusing capabilities.  And billions will rush out, stand in line - er, I mean a queue, to get the chip in their heads.

I ask you something: if you got such a chip in your head, when you woke the next morning, who would you be?  How could you know?  How would you know what thought comes from you and what thought came from the chip?  Will it tell you how to vote, what to think, where to work, how much to pay in taxes, what to do this weekend, what political opposition should you assassinate, which school to shoot up, you following where I'm going with this?  How would you know what if free will and what is chip programming?

Once you allow a chip in your brain, you are no longer an individual, you are a controlled biological slave.  Getting sassy, hits the pain shock to bring you in line.

What blows my mind is all of this kind of stuff was all over literature, television, and movies in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's: warning us of what was coming and we just let it happen with any voice in opposition being a crazy nut of some sort.

Hello, I'm a crazy nut, pleased to meet you!

The Borg were evil just 20 years ago, today they are the goal of Google and Facebook to make us all part of the collective google consciousness and millions will line up to get chipped.  Almost makes you think if the Borg really showed up to Earth if they wouldn't skip Americans less they corrupt the overall intelligence of their system.

It's a cookbook!
Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!
Fight UNI!
Fight the Future!
Make it so!

 But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
