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 know, I know, it's been over a month, my imaginary readers.

Writing is kind of like working out.  Back in college, the gyms I belonged to were setup like this:  T-TH-Sat were men workout days and MWF were women workout days.  I never missed a workout - yes, I could ONLY go TTHSat and I worked TTHSat evenings as a bartender, but the thing was, I knew if I blew off Tuesday, it would be Thursday before I could workout again, which would mean I'd go 5 days between workouts.

Now gyms are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and I noticed when gym hours expanded over the years my ability to blow off a workout increased.

Writing a blog now is kind of like that, there is so much to write about, by the time my 'blog' has started to form in my head, new news hits the waves and I never write the mental blog I completed and start making up a new blog.

I sit in utter amazement at what is happening in the news.  You KNOW this is not going to end well.

To the snowflakes or spoiled millennials or brainwashed little brats, whatever they are called, you need to understand a basic fact of life:

What you are thinking about the current president is not very much different than millions of people thought over the last 8 years of Obama.  Yep, very little difference.  Except those to thought that way about Obama and wondered how we would survive hunkered down and waited it out and the opportunity to elect someone who would overturn Obama - which is why Trump is in office today.

Cheer up, you got the media on all those DC bureaucrats on your side.

See, when we thought it strange that Obama locked up all his records including high school, college, graduate, and law school records we thought that strange, some of us remember a young black guy on Chicago Tonite (7pm on PBS Channel 11 in Chicago) always introduced as 'born in Kenya" and his PR firm said he was born in Kenya and wondered if he could run for president, we were called birthers and nuts.

Now you demand Trump reveal his tax returns and even have a NY reporter posting his contact info asking IRS agents to forward him those tax records - breaking the law in so many ways, and that is okay.

Snowflakes, you sound like the birthers.

But hats off to the people who showed up at the Trump rally in Austin recently.  When speakers were rudely interrupted but about 2 dozen anti Trump protesters, the Trump attendees walked over and basically kicked their asses around for a few minutes, teaching snowflakes for the first time that exercising your freedom of speech can have consequences.  For the past 8 years, if people spoke out against Obama, we were called racists, bigots, homophobes, and whatever other adjectives were available in the dems little red book called "shouting adjectives to avoid actual debate".

The dems in DC were going bonkers that anyone associated with Trump might of had a conversation with anyone in Russia, read “Notes from the Underground” by Dostoyevsky, or ate black fish eggs sometime in the last 100 years and claiming we should impeach until pictures show up of all those same dems eating, drinking, and laughing it up with all those now evil Russian leaders.

And this weekend Trump goes nuts in Twitter (would someone please break his cell phone now) about his home being bugged and Obama saying wasn't him, he never did anything like that while Jim Rosen and Sheryl Atkinson choke on their morning coffee and muffin reading Obama saying he never orders wiretaps on anyone.

Think about this for a second, a former prez with quite the little record of wiretaps on American citizens while he is in office and a president who discovers wiretaps in his home - golly, anyone checking out Pence's home, and ask yourself why would Trump announce this in the way he did and not wonder what is up with that?

There is a little game going on.  Obama is suppose to be living now with Valarie Jarrett in DC, where is Michelle in all this?  I mean how many marriages do you know where the husband can announce, "hey baby, I think it would be great if another woman moved in with us, you don't mind do you?".  So they are reported to be running the get rid of Trump, as opposed to most presidents who go quietly away and don't screw with the new president, and now Trump has thrown down a gauntlet that can only lead to a Congressional investigation into Obama.  Hmmmm.

So many data points its impossible to create a readable diorama.

And, oh this is choice, on March 15th, the federal government will reach it's limit of 20 trillion debt.  So Trump and reps either have to pass a new law increasing debt, which of course after 20 trillion votes to raise the debt limit to 20 trillion by dems, they will vote not to raise the debt and then blame republicans for out of control spending.  Or Trump can say, nope buck stops here, enough is enough and we will immediately start cutting federal spending and have rolling layoffs of the massive bureaucracy and now the snowflakes will be joined by all the federal employees protesting Trump, along with the Federal Reserve who's job it is to put the US into total unrecoverable bankruptcy.

Snowflakes, ask yourself one simple question, why, in 2008, did Obama refer to Bush increasing the debt from 5 trillion to 10 trillion as being treasonous, (despite the fact that in four years in Senate Obama voted yes to every spending bill and spending increase): and yet has president Obama increased the debt from 10 to 20 trillion in 8 years - why does the media give him a pass for overspending and doubling the debt all the other presidents created in US History?

This is what I am talking about you are brainwashed, programmed, and you don't even care.

Would it be tacky to start a pool on what season/year the powers that be take out Trump?

Because that is where this is headed.  The tie breaker will be correctly picking the correct patsy.  Whom will the elites want to setup as the assassins of Trump?  Will it be a Russian?  Syrian?  Chinese?  Bad bets would be snowflakes, illegal alien mexicans.  Because the purpose of the elimination of Trump will be a war; Trump being elected ruined the plans for a war with Russia.

I wonder how all the snowflakes who will celebrate the assassination of our US president will feel the next morning when they get their draft notices to report to the army for the war with Russia?

I hear her voice in the morning hour as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong,
West Virginia,
Mountain Mamma, take me home
Country roads
