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.

I always felt kind of sorry for Monica Lewinsky.  She goes to the White House as an young 20 something intern, a battling weight a little bit, and catches the attention of a very charismatic sociopath type of president who took advantage of her and turned her into his personal sex toy.  Hey, maybe she knew what she was doing, maybe not, but I'm sure she was clueless what would happen if it ever got out.

And it did.  Clinton, for some reason, didn't have to step down, whereas any other president of any organization, military, etc would have been forced out of office.  And the Clinton machine turned it all on Monica and pretty much destroyed the girl.

How would you like to go through life with your name synonymous with oral sex?  I give the girl credit, many a person might have just killed themselves faced with that future.

But now, as a 40 year old, she is going around claiming to be patient zero of cyberbullying?  Seriously?

So now it's the fault of Drudge, bloggers, and posters on newsgroups?

Sorry kid, there is a lot of blame to go around on this, but Drudge and the internet are not to blame.

You are to blame for doing what you were doing with a married man in the oval office.  The president is to blame for cheating on his wife, using the power of his office to seduce a young impressionable girl into oral sex over and over and over.  The media friendly to the president; a few of the female reporters probably also having performed on the man, and some male members of the media who came out to support the president and later discovered they were cheating on their wives at the time too; all supported the president and made you into the bad girl that you, well, were.

You did it.  Others just reported it.  Not their fault.  Let's face it, if you'd interned at some AM radio station in Kalamazoo and did your thing with the station manager, nobody would have heard of you.  But you wanted to play in the big leagues, welcome to the big leagues.

But going around now playing the victim?

And in other news......

Someday, it would be really nice to learn what sort of blackmail the WH has on Roberts and some other justices.  This week they said, although it says XYZ specifically in the ObamaCare bill, in this case we will interpret it as ABC and okay the case.  Then to really top the week off, all the states now have to accept gay marriage.  I didn't have an issue when Colorado passed a civil union law to give rights to couples, I thought that was fair.  But now the courts have once again overruled the will of the people.

See, gay marriage has been on state ballots since 1998 and was 0 - 31 in voting thru 2012.  Since 2012 a couple of states have said yes, but more said no, and the courts today said tough shit.  It says right there in the constitution that two men can marry each other.

What, you can't find it?

Me either, but that is because we didn't go to law school.  See, if you go to law school, you learn that every word has a specific definition which is why lawyers spend weeks arguing over a simple paragraph to make sure each word and sentence lacks any ambiguity that can be used later to harm a client.  After years of such practice at this careful definition of words, lawyers become judges and eventually work themselves up to where they can now define a word or sentence any way they see fit.

Which is why terms in the constitution like "right of the people" we are now told means 'the state'.  And since you actually can't find the word marriage anywhere in the constitution and there is that 10th Amendment that says anything not defined here is to be left to the states, we now are told two men can marry, your votes don't mean crap, state laws don't mean crap, just bend over and take it.

What do they have on Roberts?

When history is written about the downfall of Amerika, they will ponder how the American people  allowed their politicians, judges, corporate leaders, to steal the country blind.

We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We ohhed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry, no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
