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.

"We cannot let a minority of people - and that is what it is, it is a minority of people - hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people"

Hilary Clinton

I made a copy of this quote on Monday but couldn't post about it until today because I couldn't stop laughing each time I read it.  Hilary was addressing the ownership of semi automatic weapons by the peons of the country, that being the 85% of the population that is not part of the 1% elite and the other 14% that are criminals, though that percentage may be increasing with the free citizenship plan we are now offering on the southern border.

Speaking of the border, why aren't Canadians flocking over the northern border.  Better question, if Canada offered a Get Across the Border and Become a Canuck Card for Americans, how many Americans would flock to Canada right now?

There are three possibilities to consider with Hilary's statement.  One, she is totally out of touch and doesn't realize what she said.  Two, she thinks the peons are total morons and won't realize what she said or three, both are true.

For the latter, it's true over 50% of the public won't realize the absolute stupidity and hypocrisy of a progressive uttering such a statement.  Then again, the former possibility is open for discussion.

Let's take the logic of Hilary's statement, that a minority viewpoint and a minority of people should not hold the majority in terror and just pick your favorite liberal/progressive cause.

How about illegal immigration?  How does the quest of democrats to grant amnesty play in light of Hilary's statement?  Are the majority of Americans being forced to go along with allowing illegal immigrants to flood into this country, take jobs, resources, and votes?

How about abortion?  Polls the last decade have shown a majority of Americans are not in favor of the blood sacrifices to Satan we perform over a million times a year - I'm sorry, did that frame my opinion into the debate?

Gay rights and gay marriage?  Most americans don't care if someone is gay or not, we just don't like it rubbed in our faces and until just recently, any time a vote was put forth, people rejected it outright.  I think the score now is like For 2 Against 23 in votes.  But then, it doesn't matter how many times we vote against something, it only takes one vote For to make it the rule - kind of like terrorism.

How about the bail out of Wall Street, Monsanto, corporate subsidies and all the other theft that goes on in DC and Wall Street?  Aren't we held hostage to such practices by the wealthy 1% minority?

Climate change?  Anyone who has played with the raw data, anyone who looks that the data provided, can see that every projection their computer models have made for over 20 years as been wrong, but that hasn't stopped them from moving forward.  And now we are shutting down hundreds of coal burning power plants with nothing to replace them and our electric bills are going to start going up faster than health care, food, education, and everything else.

Or political correctness.  I grew up on the south side of Chicago in an area that required knowing a dozen polish jokes in order to graduate from 3rd grade.  Now you have to take a Sensitivity Class if you tell a joke about blacks, gays, fat people, muslims, or any other segment of society that has a good group of talking heads willing to get on TV and scream and moan about the inhumanity of it all.

In fact, if you make any joke today that doesn't involve a conservative, christian, gun owner you pretty much can be railroaded right out of town while being tarred and feathered.

Simple truth is that every damn progressive position is nothing more than a minority position forced upon the majority and if you dare speak up they pull out the debate by adjectives and call you homophobe, bigot, racist, sexist, and whatever else they can fit into a soundbite before the commercial.

The trouble is, it's working.

For nearly 40 years, the 'majority' in this country have been terrorized and held hostage, not to mention paying the tab, for every progressive minority idea that has come along.  And it is going to continue all the way till the whole system collapses.  When it collapses, are we going to get rid of all this progressive crap?  No!  We will get rid of any opposition to progressivism.  And we won't be able to stop it.  We are going to legalize and make voters out of 30 million plus illegal aliens in this country and any hope of conservatism will go right out of the voters booth; never again to see a conservative president, a moderate president, or a republican congress.

Which is why, Hilary, the majority won't give up their guns.

The phone don't ring
And the sun refused to shine
Never thought I'd have to pay so dearly
For what was already mine
For such a long, long time
We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder
The days slide by
Should have done, should have done, we all sigh
Never thought I'd ever be so lonely
After such a long, long time
Time out of mind
