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.

Well, the good and faithful serpent visited Texas - didn't have time to go see the border but did have time for two fundraisers, even though he is not running in 2016.  And when he came to Colorado, it was interesting.

Our democratic governor in a close election, well, was busy so couldn't meet the president.  Nor could Udall our senator who is in a tight race.  You can tell when a guy is poison, no politician wants to been seen with him.  BUT, after Obama had dinner in Denver, he decided to take a walk down some street in Denver and then decided to stop into a brewery pub and who is in there playing pool but our governor who was too busy to meet the prez earlier, so they played a game of pool.

And I read not one, not two, but three different articles about this amazing coincidence.

And herein lies what is so sick about this country.

Presidents work on schedules in 10 minute increments.  Governors are probably not quite so regulated but pretty close; but for Obama to just happen into the restaurant where the governor is?  It would be not quite the odds of me meeting someone somewhere who says "Hey, I read your book!"  Funny how a Secret Service team also just happened to be in same restaurant an hour before the president just happened to drop by.

And we have an 'independent' media that writes it up as a coincidence.  We have a large segment of the public gullible enough to actually believe in the coincidence.  Need we wonder why people in Washington rob rape and plunder without fear of reprisal?

The president is blatantly violating the law and his oath of office but no one would have the guts to impeach the first black president.  Think about that, we don't because of his race, which is normally defined as racism, but in this case we don't because of race because if we do irregardless of race, that would be racist.

Political correctness sure is confusing sometimes.

The president is doing fundraisers, shooting pool, playing golf while a major crisis that dwarfs Katrina is happening on our border.

And no one is going to cowboy up, millions will flood the border, another few million will be given amnesty in the coming immigration bill.  There are huge outbreaks of diseases that are about to be unleashed on the rest of the country.  Untold number of criminals are about to flood our streets, committing theft, rape, and murder.

Maybe, some father or husband, after his daughter or wife is kidnapped and raped by some of these 'dreamers' will have the balls to file a trillion dollar lawsuit against Obama, the US Government, the Border Patrol, and Congress for failure to do their jobs.

Lots of dead people before that happens though.

And what of the possibility the outbreak of Ebola in Africa makes it's way into the US from the border?  Terrorists?  This is going to suck big time folks.

I was thinking of learning Spanish so if I'm ever pulled over I can just claim to be an illegal alien and avoid all traffic violations.

Oh, who cares.  Buy more ammo, buy more water filters, make a nice poncho out of two wool blankets with one of those high tech heat blankets sewed in between to hide from drones and pray often.

You won't need a cab to find a priest
Maybe you should find a place to stay
Some place where they never change the sheets
And you just roll around Denver all day

Then LeRoy says there's something you should know
Not everybody has a place to go
And home is just a place to hang your head
And dream up things to do in Denver when you're dead
