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.

Wouldn't it be funny if we'd been misinterpreting the greek all these years and rapture was really rupture, meaning all believers would suffer a painful hernia at the coming of our Lord?

You know, if Obama starts a nuclear war with Russia just as I am about to start my new job, I'm going to be really pissed.  On the other hand, doesn't nuclear annihilation wipe the debt clean?

I once read a joke about a French WWII rifle for sale, like new, only dropped once.  For those of my younger imaginary readers, many felt the French gave in way to quickly to the Germans in WWII, thus the joke.  Not really fair, for the French resistance was famous for screwing with the Germans and quite a few young french women sacrificed their virtue to spread the clap to as many German soldiers as they could.

Why do I get the feeling that Obama, by the time he is done, will make all the old French jokes obsolete?  We are picking fights with Russia, we are picking fights with China, and we are about to gut the military.  We have double digit unemployment for 6 years and we are going to legalize 30 million illegal aliens.

Here is something else I don't quite understand.  Obama has run about a trillion dollar deficit each year he's been president.  That would be 5.  So how has he increased the debt by 9 trillion?  Approximately double the yearly cumulative deficits?

In other words, if I owe 10k and this year spend 1k more than I make, now I owe 11k minus any debt payments I made off the 10k.  So technically, the new total debt should be over 10k but less than 11k.  Not so the federal government!  Somehow, every year except 2011, we add more total debt than the deficit can account for.   The only year it looks normal is 2013, which I think means this is a projected number cause they are exactly even, as it always should be but never is, thus speculation it's not a real number.  Heck, even in 2001, we had one of those famous phantom budget surpluses but still managed to add more to the overall debt.  Holy mind numbing numbers, Batman!  I guess we know now where all those Arthur Anderson and Enron accountants and finance people ended up working.

So, once again, the question is, why does the increase in the total debt not match the actual deficits cumulated in the yearly budget?  Exactly how much of our federal government spending is 'off the books'?  Can we all do our home accounting like this?  No!  Prison!  Gee, there is an idea for a presidential candidate - promise if elected you will throw every current and former member of congress into prison, which brings us back to Putin and Russia.  Ya gotta love a clever segue - yea, I didn't know that is the actual spelling of the word either.

Our brave president stood tall and announced yesterday that Russia better stop it or there would be hell to pay.  He would not visit them this summer and call a meeting of other country's girly men of leadership and they would produce a very terse letter and get their caviar elsewhere for the spring dinner season.

Brings a tear to your eye.  The thought that Barak and Michelle would give up Russian caviar, man, they are one of us after all!

This news just in, Britain, France, New Zealand, Colorado, Texas, and Ohio have all announced plans to invade neighboring lands even if it means the president must cancel his coming visits.

Heard someone talking the other day about the key of the Ukraine for the Russians.  It not only provides a key strategic sea port for the military, but the mountains are a natural barrier to keep some enemy from just rolling tanks across the plains, which is why Russia is so against the Ukraine from becoming part of the EU and NATO.

Think about it, would you want China to take over North Carolina and Russia PA?  By the time you realized they were shooting tanks towards DC, they would be in DC.  Same with Moscow and the Ukraine.

By the way, changing the topic for a paragraph, remember when the "cold war" ended with the fall of the Soviet Union and we got this huge "peace dividend" from defense spending?  Yet no one ever actually got a check and there was no tax cut because, if you remember, Clinton tearing up telling us he tried, he tried harder than anything he's ever done to get the middle class a tax cut.  Then we less than 10 years later find us in Afghanistan for over a decade now, the Iraq war, so I guess the military got their money back but now that we are out of Iraq and leaving Afghan, will our budget get a peace dividend?  I mean they are planning serious military cutbacks, so I'm sure we will see a corresponding drop in the actual budge... quit laughing it could happen.

Obama avoided all of this middle class tax cut by just eliminating the middle class.

Well, anyways, with that spineless example yesterday, all rumors of our President being some kind of reptilian creature are put to rest because reptiles have a backbone.  So today I start a new rumor of alien jellyfish that come to Earth with the vision of taking over the planet by raising global temperatures thus raising sea levels until the whole planet is covered by water then they can send a message to the mothership to send everyone.  These jellyfish like creatures are capable of taking on the form of humans and the only way you can tell them apart from normal humans is the jellyfish aliens don't have a backbone, thus identifying our president as the leader of the jellyfish alien invaders!  In fact, Barak, in swahili, means Box, which makes him a alien box jellyfish hybrid!  Box Jelly Fish can kill a human in 5 minutes, where as a alien box jellyfish hybrid can kill a county in less than 8 years!

Run for your lives!  They're here!!!!
