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.

First, for some reason I've suddenly become popular in the Philippines.  One hundred thirty three views this week to 16 in the USA.  I wonder if they will erect a statue or something.

I also get tons of hits from Russia and the Ukraine for some reason, well, if there ever is a war, sorry, and if you invade, look me up, just ask around Colorado for Barkley Pontree.

But hopefully, it won't come to that.  Shame the democrats and the media were able to sabotage any possibility Putan and Trump could get together and work something out, like Reagan and Gorby.  Would of made for an interesting world if Russia and USA signed a peace treaty of some sort.

So, last weekend a car is used, in France awhile back a truck is used, now a van in Spain and I keep thinking how are they going to get Americans to give up driving and use self driving cars?  A national security issue, watch my faithful imaginary readers, when the time comes for self driving cars a push will be national security.  If all cars are self driving, then no one will be able to drive into a crowd.

Strange though, not one modern pea brained liberal has said anything about car/van/truck control laws.

Mark it down, before the month is out, there will be cries to tear down Washington and Jefferson from Mount Rushmore.  Some will cry to tear down old Abe's face but cooler heads will prevail - these are the moderate morons.

Listened to a Dick Morris interview, he was on C2C a few days ago and just got around to downloading the show, converting it, putting in iTunes and then syncing to my phone because COAST TO COAST AM DOESN'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT IT'S PAYING CUSTOMERS AND FORCED US TO DOWNLOAD THEIR APP WHICH STREAMS JUST FINE BUT TRY SAVING A SHOW AND WATCH ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE.  For years it was working just fine in Apple Podcasts app and if they built an app that just did streaming and news it would be a great app but now it's like I'm back to 2005 downloading, converting, copying and syncing and it just pisses me off they intentionally broke what worked to force people to use their app that doesn't work.

Where was I oh yea, Dick Morris.  First of all, don't like him much, perverted little goblin that he is.  But he is also smart, politically, and that makes for interesting listening as long as I can keep the visual image of him sucking toes of hookers out of my head.

Do hookers even charge for getting their toes sucked?  Wouldn't that be like the IRS charging you for the audit?

Morris had some interesting observations on Trump and what is going on but he pointed out there is a whole lot of things Trump has done that is never hitting the government media and I'm listening thinking I never heard that.

Maybe Trump should twit what he's done this week instead of picking fights and making an ass out of himself in Twitter.

Now if we could just figure out how to make Congress and the government media to stop making asses of themselves we might have a chance.

But sometimes I like to explain to my imaginary readers how to deal with certain situations (and sometimes I forget I already discussed this in the previous post but I am almost 60 so deal with it ), you might run into in life, like protests by imbred morons - no, not Congress, but the KKK and Neo Nazi's, which, come to think of it, has had it's fair share of KKK members over the years, democrats of course, don't you know.

Back in my college days at some non discript midwestern university that will get noses raised in the air in Ivy League states, Iranian students were protesting most every afternoon in front of the student union.  Well, one day some people showed up, not saying who, with several dozen water balloons and well, one thing led to another and this rainbow of colored balls arched across West Michigan Ave is the bright fall sun and it was amazing how many balloons found their mark.  Fortunately, the police were there in force and would have stopped any retaliation or further  issues, well, once they got done laughing.

Laughter.  That is how you deal with reprehensible Iranian students, inbred neo nazi's and members of the KKK.  Laughter.  Don't show up with clubs and guns to fight, come to laugh, laugh at them, make fun of them, dress as clowns and mimes, how funny would it be after the KKK and Neos march by to see a bunch of mimes marching in lockstep like the SS.

So throw a party America.  Bring out the drinks, bring out the clown outfits, bring out the mimes, bring out the balloons and treat the KKK and Neo's like they are; as just clowns and jokes.

And if you really want to upset them and make them go home quickly, hold those gay pride parades at the same time.   Just picture 20 or 30 KKK or neo nazi's standing their with their hoods and german uniforms suddenly finding themselves surrounded by 500 men dressed in jock straps and coca cabana  fruit covered hats all dancing around to Village People songs and those good ol' boys will be running back to their outhouses and never come out again.

That is how you fight fire, with water.  You want to end public displays of racist morons like the KKK and you just can't ignore them, then mock them with what they hate the most, hold the gay pride parades at the same time - hey it's win win for the gay pride people, straight people who are really uncomfortable with gay pride parades like me will say "thanks" and who knows, maybe all those KKK / Neo guys are really just wanting to dance to the Village People in the streets too.

Where can you find pleasure, search the world for treasure,
learn science, technology?
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
on the land or on the sea?
Where can you learn to fly, play in sports or skindive,
study oceanography?
Sign up for the big band or sit in the grand stand
when your team and others meet.
In the Navy, yes, you can sail the seven seas.
In the Navy, yes, you can put your mind at ease.
In the Navy, come on now people, make a stand.
In the Navy, can't you see we need a hand.
In the Navy, come on, protect the motherland.
In the Navy, come on and join your fellow, man.
In the Navy, come on, people, and make a stand.
In the Navy, in the Navy.
