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.

Roger Waters- another example of why I love music but couldn't care less about a musician.  Why not just come out of the closet on your next album and call it the 4th Reich - his hatred of anything Jewish, well, here is the thing.  I like old Elton John music, don't care he's a raving diva, like Pink Floyd, don't care that Waters is an idiot.  Talented, but an idiot.  Glad to see most other musicians are ignoring his anti jewish blather too.

I regret now not majoring in journalism when I was in school, talk about an easy job these days.  Let me explain why.

I'm sure most of my imaginary readers, by now, have heard that Jess Sessions met with the Russian ambassador during the campaign and talked about the campaign.  The Washington Post was the first to break that story, I think, it's kind of hard to trace to any source.  And once it ran, then all the other papers, news shows, cable news, little three news shows, and web sites all ran the big headlines that Sessions broke the law discussing campaign stuff with the Russian ambassador.

And what evidence did the original story have?  One anonymous source.  In fact, if you dig thru the article, somewhere around paragraph 20ish, they do mention that these kind of leaks have been false in the past as a little game the two countries like to play but the Russian ambassador is usually reliable in his reports, which is apparently how the Post got the story, the NSA intercepted the report and then someone in DC passed the story to the paper - not any actual documentation mind you, just "hey, did you know...." and the post runs the headline.

How cool is that, I can just see it now.......  I feel like Tuesday Turtle about to go back via the Wizard....

Good evening ladies and gentlemen and all the ships at sea, this is your reporter Bosco P. Lemonzit reporting from war torn Israel.  This just in: An anonymous source with the Israeli Mossad has told this reporter that during Barak Obama's recent trip to Israel, the Israeli government was appalled at Barak Obama getting so sexually excited while visiting a sheep farm in the West Bank that the former president dropped his pants and began having sex with multiple lambs.  Not sure of the accuracy of the story, this reporter reached out to a shepherd who confirmed that sometimes Americans love having sex with sheep, but it was kind of confusing since this is the first time he saw the sheep doing the mounting.

This just in: DC police, according to an anonymous source with the DC police department, have raided a republican sex orgy where members of the house and senate regularly gather at Lindsey Grahams Washington townhouse and play naked twister.  When police arrived, according to the anonymous source, Speaker Paul Ryan appeared to be ridden by Mitch McConnell who was shouting, "what to you think of my PX90 now Ryan!"

Hey, I'm not just making this stuff up!  I have an imaginary anonymous source for all of it!

Dateline Seattle:  Seattle mayor accused by another victim of child sexual molestation during the 1980's.  Another victim of Seattle mayor's sexual preference for young boys has surfaced.   Seattle voters reacted to the news by ordering a double latte and pondered where would Nirvana be today if the CIA had not killed Kurt Cobain.   The mayor, angrily denounced the stories as 'yesterday's news' and an attempt by the Trump administration to derail his plans to run for president in 2020.  Some are saying, according to my anonymous source, the mayors 2020 presidential campaign theme, "It's about the children" to be a sure winner with the majority of democratic voters.

Dateline Chicago:  The Chicago White Sox today traded the remaining veterans on their roster for the entire stable of the East Hampton High School Polo Team , claiming that in 2025 this trade should really pay off once the horses learn to play the field without grazing between pitches and crapping all over the infield.  An anonymous White Sox fan is reported to have retorted, "how could we tell the difference?"

This just in:  According to an anonymous source, Shep Smith of Fox News and MSNBC's Joe Scarborough are leaving their positions at their respective networks to open a Bed and Breakfast in Three Pines Quebec.  (Okay, I made this one up, just looking forward to Louise Penny's next novel due out in August)


Twizzle twazzle twuzzle twome, time for this one to come home.......

Okay, I'm back imaginary readers.  The point of all this is journalism once had rules about anonymous sources, can't use them, getting confirmation from a second source before running a story and talking to the person for comment.  No more, one person at a computer keyboard with an imaginary anonymous source can write pretty much whatever they want to write and the rest of the media will fall all over themselves to carry the story thus spreading the lies far and wide and making it virtually impossible to track down anything.  And never a false story doth be retracted.

And do you think foreign countries are not aware of how damn easy it is now to get just about anything printed or covered by our media?  How hard  do you think it would be for a country like Russia, China to be behind a lot of these stories to weaken the USA?  Can you imagine the utter disorder forcing Trump from office and throwing the US into a civil war would be?  Or how about George Soros being behind much of this, since he already is funding about 90% of the leftist head up the ass people in this country anyways.

So what is fake news exactly?  Pretty much everything these days folks.  Welcome to what is left of America.

Well, I was planning on posting lyrics to a song about the 'news' but in searching the only songs I could find were cussing up a storm except for one by Air Supply and there is not a chance on God's green Earth I will EVER post Air Supply lyrics on my blog so there.
