A MIND FOREVER VOYAGING THROUGH STRANGE SEAS OF THOUGHT, ALONE


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.

THE $32,928,164.88 MAN

Oh, admit it, you always wondered if they remade the Six Million Dollar Man today how much it would cost to rebuild and make better Steve Austin.

Speaking of real men, boy, John McCain leaves Washington suffering from a brain tumor and suddenly his BFF Lindsey Graham goes total macho butch and announces he is 100% for all the young boys, called Dreamers for some reason which I don't think has anything to do with them coming to America to be free, and all other illegal aliens to be given amnesty and to increase the number of foreigners to be brought to this country to fill needed hi tech and construction positions.

Wow, what next Lindsey, getting a Highway to Hell tattoo?

I think illegal aliens should run for congress next year, I for one would love to replace congress and 1/3 of the senate with nothing but illegal aliens.  Wonder if Paul Ryan and others would change their tunes if THEIR jobs were outsourced to illegals.  Plus, we could cut their salaries by 75%.

But of course, this will never work because some illegals are Russian and any Russian elected to congress would immediately be called a Putin spy and a special prosecutor would be required to determine if Trump broke the law playing golf at a course where a reported Russian mafia members girlfriends brother worked as a caddie 15 years ago.


This just in: CNN is reporting that Trump once ordered a White Russian.  Chuck Schumer is calling for additional special prosecutors to determine just what Trump was doing ordering a white russian while Maxine Waters is claiming racism that Trump would specify a white russian and not order a black russian.

I wonder what would happen if Trump announced a new health care plan.  First, to satisfy the democrats, we will do Medicare from cradle to grave and pay for it with a 2% sales tax.  Then, to satisfy the repocrats, we can have a private insurance system, no state lines, totally capitalistic where you can buy a policy, pick stuff you want coverage for, so guys won't have to cover pregnancy for example, and then if you want government health care you can join that system and if you want private coverage you can go that route and both sides get what they want and within 10 to 15 years we will see which is superior.

And while I sit in my apartment watching old Woody Woodpecker, Heckle and Jeckle, and Bugs Bunny cartoon on Saturday morning, which is how I like to spend my Saturday mornings, and offer idiotic advice to the president, it might be time to go to war Mr. President.

Look, they are trying to run you out of office and when looking for leaks, you might want to check out the Pence people since they will benefit from destroying you, see LBJ, Gerald Ford and Bush the 1st.  You need to go to war against the Swamp.  Order a special prosecutor to investigate members of Congress involved in child sex rings.  Order a special investigation and audit of the Clinton Foundation.  Audit congressional spending.  Announce that Mueller has overstepped the boundaries and while you are within the law to replace him, you will not, however, any crimes he discovered that are outside the scope of what his investigation was suppose to be, you will pardon - thus avoiding the possible situation where someone did something in 1995 and will get immunity if they make up lots of stories about Putin and Trump in some sort of lovers embrace.

Look, my imaginary readers, I'm all for the truth be told though the heavens be dammed philosophy.  But I really don't get this whole thing.  Look this up.  Look up 1996 and what was said and written about Clinton and Yeltsin who were both running for re election and how Clinton told Yeltsin  that if Russia were to drop, and they did, some embargo of US poultry, I think it was poultry, that it would help Clinton get re elected and in turn Clinton did some things that helped Yeltsin get re elected.

Was that a crime?  Was there an investigation?  Was that not exactly what they are claiming Trump and Putin were doing?   Sure sounds like one to me.  Or how about all the Chinese money that went to Clinton and then Gore, the Al Gore of 'I didn't do anything wrong and I won't do it again' fame in the 2000 election?

And I am sorry, but America is looking like a serious hypocrite when you consider how many times we have interfered in other countries elections, you think we can just keep doing that and not have other countries trying to mess with ours?

There is a coup d'├ętat occurring in this country folks.  You okay with that?

You think you had the last laugh now you know this can't be true
Even though the sun shines down upon you now
Sometimes you must feel blue
You make the best of each new day you try not to be sad
Even though the sky falls down upon you call it midnight feelin' bad

When you wake up to the promise of your dream world comin' true
With one less friend to call on was it someone that I knew
Away you will go sailin' in a race among the ruins
If you plan to face tomorrow do it soon

The road to love is littered by the bones of other ones
Who by the magic of the moment were mysteriously undone
You try to understand it but you never seem to find
Any kind of freedom comin' clean is just another state of mind

When you wake up to the promise of your dream world comin' true
With one less friend to call on was it someone that I knew
Away you will go sailin' in a race among the ruins
If you plan to face tomorrow do it soon

So take the best of all that's left you know this cannot last
Even though your mother was you maker from her apron strings you pass
Just think about the fool who by his virtue can be found
In a most unusual situation playin' jester to the clown

When you wake up to the promise of your dream world comin' true
With one less friend to call on was it someone that I knew
Away you will go sailin' in a race among the ruins
If you plan to face tomorrow do it soon

When you wake up to the promise of your dream world comin' true
With one less friend to call on was it someone that I knew
Away you will go sailin' in a race among the ruins
If you plan to face tomorrow do it soon
