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.

So China has chimed in on the whole NK versus America thing and I wished they'd just shut the hell up.

China said if NK does something stupid, they are on there own, but then warned the US not to just go in with no incident or China would defend NK.

Great, hello false flag.

Name a war we've been in that hasn't started with a false flag.  Vietnam?  Nope, that false harbor attack.  Gulf War I?  Nope again!  Turns out that woman claiming she was in Kuwait and saw Iraqi soldiers going into hospitals and killing little babies, nope, that was a lie.

9/11?  Gave us a 16 year war in Afghanistan (and even more if McCain has his way, let's do another surge - hey John, you haven't got long to live, why don't YOU go over to Afghanistan, grab a gun and lead the charge, have you kids with you too so you can lead by example!).

And now here we are all geared up to go against NK and China says, nope, have to have a reason and next day there are stories about NK agents with suitcase nukes might have come across the border during the Obama administration and now we got our reason and all it is going to cost us is some small american city or maybe Chicago which always seems to be the rumored thing - pay attention to the Mayor in Chicago and if he suddenly leaves the city in an unplanned trip, oh well, we will see.

So if we have a war with NK, who's fault is it?  Trump will get the blame, but truth be told look at Clinton, Bush II and Obama who ignored it and let it get this far.

Let's face it, NK will not win a war against the USA.  Plain and simple, but in the process it is well within their ability to do, and ours not to stop, the bombing of Seoul, Tokyo, and other cities in Asia.  We also have a small issue of making sure none of the NK subs are sitting off the coast of the USA, in fact, that would be a cool message for Trump to send, in one day sink all the NK subs at sea and just shrug and say 'weird huh'.  But in the end, who is going to pay for the rebuilding of NK, SK and Japan, yes, we have a winner, the US taxpayer.

This is where a lot of Americans get pissed off and want to just say 'fine, we are tired of dealing with the worlds problems and our working citizens are tired of their tax dollars going around the world, so we are pulling out of Asia, you all figure it out.  And out of the middle east, let someone else deal with it - oh we will still protect Japan, SK, Israel etc, but no more open checkbooks'  China and Russia want to be world leaders, you deal with NK but understand, if NK ever does hit the USA, we will take them out and apologize ahead of time for a few of those errant bombs that accidentally landed in China and Russia .

I don't know, it's a mess and it's going to get messier and when a bomb goes off in the USA that we can blame on NK, we can thank China for putting us in that position.

Which brings up another topic, national security.  Reagan dropped a big ball when president.  He should have stopped the creating and manufacturing of all this computer stuff overseas especially in China under the umbrella of national security.  Any company making all their products in China right now is in dangerous territory of one day having all their plants shut down and no new products coming into the US.  Can you imagine if suddenly there were not going to be any new phones, computers, etc until plants could be built in the USA?  Think that little problem through.  Or consider a possibility that all our military planes, ships, and subs are running on Chinese chips and a signal could fry all of them making everything inoperable?

We live in interesting times, hope to see you on the other side.

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I've been for a walk on a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A.
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

I stopped into a church I passed along the way
Well I got down on my knees and I pretended to pray
You know the preacher liked the cold, he knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
I'd be safe and warm
I'd be safe and warm
I'd be safe and warm

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I've been for a walk on a winter's day
If I didn't go, I could leave today
California dreamin' on such a winter's day
Oh such a winter's day
On such a winter's day
