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.

TRUMP TWITTERS PART TWO

So, what did we learn?  Trump pissed off a bunch of overpaid athletically gifted people who coasted through high school and college with free rides and greased thru the tough classes.

And woke up America.

Then he introduces a tax plan that will benefit all those awoken Americans and hose the athletes, owners, and people who buy skyboxes at sporting events.

He doubles the exemptions from 6k to 12k, figure that will save me about 1200 to 1500 bucks a year. How much did you itemize last year?  8k?  10k?  Guess what, now you can just simple form it and not worry about all those deductions.

For those of you itemizing and living in states that have income taxes, you no longer will be able to write off the state income taxes from federal income.  That's what you liberal commies get for supporting the players, most of whom couldn't tell you why they are protesting.

Does anyone even remember why the former QB took a knee in the first place?  Was it about cops shooting black men?  I think that was why.  Of course, there are more police shootings of white people than black people every year, and the other day some article showed that if you compare police shootings to public shooting public, it's like .0029% of the shootings in NYC.

But why let facts and stats get in the way of a great story that doesn't exist?

So now the question: did Trump's Twitter attack on the NFL players to incite the foundation of America just before releasing the tax plan that will benefit the foundation of America the plan all along?

Too bad the bill will never pass the Senate Republicans, I'm sure McCain and some others will derail it for everyone.  And get big deductible cash contributions from the players, owners, and skybox buyers.  Then again, after what happened in Georgia, maybe some of those Senators running in 2018 are going to wake up and go with the program to try and stave off a primary challenger.

But here is a bigger question:  why would democrats not support the tax play?
1.  People making less than 75K will pay less in taxes or no taxes - that by the way is about 60% of the over 18 population.
2.  A surcharge tax on the wealthy?  How can they claim the tax plan is a tax break for the wealthy when the foundation of the country get the big break and there is going to be a surcharge on the wealthy - oh yea, all the dems in congress are the wealthy - they just are going to need a good story.
3.  Corp tax rate comes down to just under the average corporate tax rate of all the nations, we will go from having the highest corporate tax rates to being less than half, which can only help businesses and create jobs in this country.

I don't know if it will pass or not, but understand this much; if it does pass, that business climate in this country will boom like the 80's and 90's did.

TRUMPS TWITTERS

Is Trump smarter than the rest of us?

Seems like every few months or so he gets tooled up or something and starts Twitting and the next thing you know every news story is about Trumps Twitters, and even his biggest fans are thinking all they want for Xmas is for someone to take that damn smart phone away from Trump.

Could the Secret Service shoot the phone and claim it was a perceived threat on the president's life?  That would be cool.

But Trump has been in office for 9 months now and a smart person might have figured out maybe this Twitting isn't such a good idea.  But let's take a different approach to figure out what is going on and ask ourselves, is he doing this intentionally?  Playing with people?  Manipulating things?

I've read what he twitted several times.  At no time did he make reference to the race of NFL players, yet everyone is freaking out as it being racist.  Everyone is attacking him for being racist.

I don't watch football, do only black players protest during the national anthem?

And once again, liberals are all hung up on race, conservatives, who are always being called racists, actually don't give a crap.  Guess what, if Tom Brady, (yes, I've heard of him) sits during the national anthem, I would have the same opinion of him I do of a black player who sits - and it's not a favorable one.

See, the issue here isn't race, it is of behavior, and it is of what can an employee do during work and what control does the employer have.

But my imaginary readers are sharp, you already know the answer to this.  If your company starts the day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or singing God Bless America, what happens is the boss pulls you into the office and reads you the riot act and in todays world notifies HR you are on report and tomorrow if you sit for it again they fire your ass.

Yep, that is how it works.  When you are in employment with a company and you do something that offends a large percentage of fans who stop coming or watching the games, buying the jerseys, etc, they fire your ass for hurting the business.

When players are in uniform, they are representing the business, and if they sit or protest during the Star Spangled Banner when league and team rules say you are to stand at attention, and your stands are filled with men and women who served in our military, or kids are in the military and they see some durod getting paid 10m a year sitting on his ass during the SSB, they know two things, one, h is an ass and two it pisses them off.

And they know if they did something on their job, that takes two work days to afford the ticket to the football game and pay the salary of the ass,  similar to what the players are doing, they would get fired on the spot.

Trumps Twit.

You want to stop it, fire the next player that does it for violation of team and league rules.

When you enter employment, you enter a contract with employer that limits your free speech.  Now outside of work, it gets a little more complex.

Let's say, for example, you are a retail employee for REI.  And on your day off you march in an NAZI march.  They see your picture.  Should you get fired?  Yes, REI should fire your ass.  And if you march for Black Lives Matter and looting and rioting?  Yes - you won't be, but you should.  You won't be because BLM is politically correct with the occult media - hey, did you read about Sally Quinn? - and the NAZI's are not politically correct so the NAZI goes and the BLM stays.

Do either on company time and you will be fired.

What makes an NFL player so special?  Well, besides being passed thru high school, free rides to colleges, free passes for rapes and other crimes, large sums of money to play a kids game and all the special privileges that come with being a professional jock.

Maybe some NFL team with a little balls will do something like this: next game, when a player sits or kneels during the national anthem, suspend them for the next two games and replace them on the roster with a soldier missing a leg or two or arm or two.  Let him wear the uniform of the NFL and he may not play in the game, but I will bet you he struggles to stand for that national anthem.

He may not know much about football, but he could teach all those players what it means to be a man.

But, back to Trumps Twits.  Why did he do this?  Is he being clever, causing a commotion in order to distract everyone from something else going on?  I wonder i you looked at the history of Trumps Twitter Tantrums and timed them with what is in the news?  Like another John McCain vote killing the repeal of ObamaCare Taxes on middle class America?

By the way, if you were going to court, facing jail time, would you want a lawyer suffering brain cancer and undergoing treatment representing you?  How about a heart surgeon?  Your accountant?
Take a brokers recommendation from a broker with brain disease?  Doesn't AZ have some sort of rule or way to remove a sitting elected government official due to mental imbalances?

Let's face it, when Trump goes a Twitting, all other news goes unread.  Because for reporters of modern America, and most Americans, twitter wars are something they can comprehend, NK, economics, etc are beyond their public education.

Oh yea, back to Quinn, who worked for years as the religious reporter for the Washington Post and claimed to be an atheist and now we find out since childhood has been seriously doing occult sort of things including claiming to cause the death of three people whom she cursed.

Ask yourself this, Sally Quinn is sort of the ultimate power broker in DC, along with her former husband.  They held the power and the social king and queen of the prom title for 3 or 4 decades, and do you think she was this occult queen and it didn't trickle down the power/social circles?

Remember the vast far alt right rumors last fall about pizza gate and those stories about blood drinking and other sort of things in DC?

Not so far fetched anymore, not when the queen of power/social circles in DC admits it.

Too bad George Nooray didn't ask her about that.

THE PLAN OF IFS

Let's start with blog stats.  Last night had over 50 imaginary readers visit the blog.  Forty were from Russia.  Yet by blog stats only show 4 read, 3 read, 2 read by title and they don't add up to 50.

And why am I becoming so popular with imaginary readers in Russia?  Perhaps my writing compares to the great Russian writers of history?  My writing goes good with Vodka?  Ah, stereotypes!

Or maybe they are Trump spies?  So todays poll question: What is the most popular stereotype of a Russian today in America?  A person drunk on vodka or a spy working for the Trump election? - I still don't get all that.

As stated, if it were not for the media and democrats, do you realize there was a small window of opportunity when Trump was elected, that the US and Russia could have forged a friendship, put aside the hostilities, maybe helped Russia join NATO which would have been seriously cool because one of NATO's rules is one NATO country cannot attack another and any NATO country attacked will be defended by all other NATO countries so if Russia joined NATO how would that be bad?

But no, it is 24/7 the dems and their sponsored media minions pounded how bad Russia is, despite a 50 year history of the democratic party supporting socialism and communism and hold Russia as a shining example of what America could be - I still don't get all that.

If the quantum theory of entanglement is true, does that mean when someone delivered me a cold pizza, that somewhere else someone burned their mouth on their pizza?

Since once upon a time I promised this blog would be about starting life over in your late 50's I shall discuss a puzzle.  So right now I'm buying 5% of company stock with each paycheck, also putting 5% in a 401k; the plan is if this and if that and if this happens and if that happens and if this can happen and I can work for this company another 10 years till I am 70, I might have enough money to retire and not live in poverty.  Okay, but by putting 10% a check into this Plan of If's, I am now currently living like a pauper.  So I am choosing to struggle financially so that there is a small possibility that in 10 years I can retire comfortably based on a Plan of If's that have a probability of all happening  of something like .0039.  And, of course, I can always die before I reach 70, so do I intentionally struggle for the next 10 years hoping this plan with a chance of success is .0039 works and I can have some money when I'm old or do I just say the hell with it and spend and enjoy life now knowing that the world is probably gonna suck in 10 years whether I have any money or not and whether I am alive or not.

And the things is, it's not like this plan would make me seriously rich in 10 years, it won't, it will still be a struggle I'm sure, but probably a little less of a struggle, but then I add 10 years of struggling and the end result will be struggling anyways so why not just spend it now and not struggle, knowing I'm totally hosing myself after 70, if I live that long.

Now I understand why people marry and have kids so when the parent reaches 70, they can shrug and let their kids figure it out for them.

And if one of the ifs fail and the whole plan falls apart, then I will struggle for the next 8 years and still get a crappy life after 70.  So maybe smart is cutting that 401k and stock plan in half, living a little better now, and still having something to struggle thru the latter years.  Brain hurts now.

But that is starting over in your late 50's, with 60 knocking on the door this December.  Cause I am lying to myself with the 50/50 on all 8 of the ifs in the Plan of Ifs, probably more like a 25% chance, which make the odds .00001526.  Another one of those wonderful mysteries of life where, in the end, you have a choice A or B and both totally suck.

Which reminds me i bought a lotto ticket last month and haven't checked to see how much I won!

Shit.  Okay, so much for that idea.

I wonder why no one has ever written the self help book "Forget the Planning and Dreaming; The Game is Fixed and You are Hosed No Matter What You Do".   I'm surprised Werner Erhard never thought of that title for a book.

I will admit, after my little dig on BLM I was wondering if Google would have killed my account and blog, I guess having a blog no one reads except imaginary readers pays off sometimes.  Imaginary readers never tattle on the bloggers.

There's an old man in our town
And I guess he's been around
For years and years
At least it seems that way.

Wrinkled hands and rocking chair
Growing old just sitting there
Every year he had the sing
For youth to say.

Youth only happens to you one time
An so I've been told
If you should miss it in your youngtime
Have it when you're old.

Now there's no old man sitting there
Just an empty rocking chair
But the things he said
Will always be around.

Someday when I'm old and grey
Maybe youth can come my way
I'll be proud to be
The old man in our town.

And I'll say youth only happens to you one time
An so I've been told
If you should miss it in your youngtime
Have it when you're old...

WHEW, WAY TO GO BLACK LIVES MATTER

Frankly, with all they had on their plate, I could not believe BLM was able to get to St. Louis and stage three or four days of rioting, not with their people so spread out and resources depleted with all the BLM rescue operations in Texas and Florida from those two  hurricanes.

When they count the totals number of illegal aliens in the country, do they including the 350,000 in federal or state prisons?

See, that is the trouble with the immigration debate; one side touts 200 shining examples of number 1 in their graduating class and what an upstanding employee they are and the other side brings out the names of the 7,000 Americans killed by illegal aliens over the last decade.  Never going to see eye to eye on anything arguing with those two worldview set in stone.

Funny how the world changes though, 20ish years ago, it was the right wing republicans fighting to keep Elian Gonzales in the country and the democrats wanting to send him back to Cuba.

I do owe Jennifer Lawerence something of an apology.  I'd commented on what she said, something to suggest mother nature was punishing the US for Trump, as being the most idiotic thing ever uttered.  But I started to think about the people blaming climate change/global warming for the 3 massive hurricanes.  Before Harv and Irma, it had been 11 years since the last hurricane to hit the US mainland.  So it dawned on me suggesting some kind of supernatural reason for the hurricanes actually makes more logical sense than what the CC/GW crowd is saying.

But what I really want to talk about in today's chautauqua is the Chicago Bears.

1.  They kind of suck
2.  But in 2 or 3 years they might be the divisions best.

Might.

See, they are seriously snake bit with injuries, every year, which makes me think just changing the coach isn't going to help much.  They need to change trainers and nutritionists.  I mean what are the odds a guy tears his pec muscle on a play, they put in his replacement the next week and he tears his pec muscle too.  Two players in two weeks with an obscure tearing of a pec muscle?   The entire NFL goes seasons without that sort of injury.   Something seriously wrong in that weight room and nutritional intake.

But I like they are hiding the second coming on the bench right now playing the first 5 or 6 games against some seriously good teams.  Why let him figure out the wasteland of a career that awaits him? Wait until mid October, when the football season in Chicago unofficially ends along with baseball seasons, then bring him in, fill the stadium with subpeons who will sit in cold and rain to cheer a last place team to see the future.

It is a business after all.  And the circus is officially closed.

Maybe if the Bears changed their uniform to Creepy Clowns they might frighten an opponent into submission?

No, wait, that Creepy Clowns could be a great new name for the Redskins if they are ever forced by the politically correct reptilian schmuks to change their name, what better name for a football team representing our nations capital than Creepy Clowns.

What a great survey for the blog:  If the Redskins change their team name to The DC Creepy Clowns, who is their mascot?

1.  Denny Hassert
2.  Bill Clinton
3.  Anthony Weiner
4.  Any member of congress would probably work

Still, if the Bears put on creepy clown make up it couldn't hurt, unless they tear a deltoid putting on the makeup.

GLASS HOUSES by LOUISE PENNY


Another adventure by Louise Penny hit the shelves last weekend and it's a wonderful book.

Personally, I think her books should be read in order.  Her character development and the history of Three Pines plays important roles in her writing and it's hard to understand the characters and their choices if you are not familiar with the history of the characters.

Many of the regulars in her series, while in those book, seem to take something of a backseat to the bigger story of that age old question:  do the ends justify the means.  Do you break the law to save the law?  What exactly are you willing to risk?

Not doing a book review here, just letting my imaginary readers know that one of the great all time series of books is by Louise Penny.  First book is Still Life and Glass Houses is 13th in a series I hope never ends.

BATTON DOWN THE HATCHES BOYS, IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD

So, if and when Irma keeps moving west and completely misses Miami, how are you going to deal with several million people who were evacuated for nothing?

I know, better safe than sorry, and if I lived there I'd have been in Ohio by last Tuesday, but we live in Idiotsville these days and all those people are going to come back, pissed off, and when the next hurricane comes they will stay when the Cat 5 actually hits Miami.

Which I guess is not a bad thing, fewer idiots is always a good thing.

But our Climate Chicken Littles (CCL) are not missing a step, Harvey and Irma were caused by global warming caused by Trump not going along with the Paris Accord.  Several of our countries most highly paid actresses have come forward to announce Mother Nature is punishing the USA for voting for Trump or something, my brain exploded before I could finish reading their whole statement, which I don't know if Jennifer Lawerence realizes it, but she just proved to herself she is:

A:  Dumb as an ox and that is probably an insult to oxen.
B: Is able to memorize lines
C: Every male in the world would want to have sex with her

Which is why stupid is so highly paid in Hollywood.

So, if the hurricanes are Mother Nature getting even with the USA, then please explain to all those Mexicans why Mother Nature just popped that earthquake on Mexico and killed all those people?  What did they do to deserve Mother Nature's wrath?  Or how about all the people killed or lost everything in all those islands that were destroyed prior to Irma reaching Trump voters in Florida?

See, the issue is when you attribute something to Mother Nature, moon gods, or even the one true God in Heaven Himself, you open the alternative.  When I was struggling along being a caretaker for my dad, as many of my imaginary readers know, it was seriously a difficult thing.  Had a friend who I worked with at that plant in Chicago area and he got a new job that paid more and he was so happy always saying God had blessed him.  Now the implication here is that God favored him and got him this great job while apparently God is pissing on me because He isn't blessing me.

If you are going to give God (or insert any false deity you mistakenly believe in other than the one true God in Heaven - that should piss off the politically correct goblins) credit when good things in your life happen, shouldn't you also give God credit when your life goes down the crapper?

Think of Houston or any other disaster, fires, floods, tornadoes.  One house will stand unharmed while neighbors homes all around are totally destroyed and they lost everything.  God saved X while destroying Y and Z.  Y and Z don't understand why because X is kind of an ass, so why was he spared while do-gooders Y and Z lose everything they own?

Don't ask me, I don't understand it either.  Read Job, the answer is there if you can figure it out.

But one thing I do understand is every time a natural disaster happens, people expect the government to print up a few more billion dollars and buy them all new stuff.  And politicians pushing an agenda will  jump on board full out stupid.

Why don't people who build homes along coast lines where hurricanes are common accept a little responsibility for choosing to live in that area?  You get to live along the Florida coast and all the advantages of living in paradise,  well the bill will come one day when a hurricane hits and you won't have insurance to cover it and then expect someone else living in Kansas to cover it.  Same with California and building homes and businesses all along fault lines and you KNOW that one day it's going to go and when it does, you want someone else to rebuild your home and buy you a new plasma screen TV.

Funny when mother nature does something along a coast line the rest of America is suppose to pay for it with tax dollars but when the same farmer who is taxed up the wazoo to cover those costs has his entire fields wiped out by a storm a week before harvesting was due to start, we expect the farmer to deal with it themselves.  Which is why farmers buy insurance and buy/sell options to cover their asses if they can.

Why when a storm destroys homes do we expect government to refund people but when a storm wipes out a seasons worth of crops the farmer is expected to deal with it, part of doing business?

I love the way America responded to Houston.  Good ol' guys and dolls from all over the south showed up with their boats and rescued whomever they could.  Didn't give a damn about skin color, who you voted for - they just saved the people the best they could. All lives mattered.  Tens of millions of dollars donated for food and shelter needs.  Nobody cares whether it's helping white people or black people, it's to help people.

And that is the great thing about a crisis.  All the BS drops away, from care taking a parent with alzheimer's to floods to tornadoes.  We go thru life in America bitching and moaning about whether people born guys but want their own tits to play with getting to use the woman's room or because I choose to have sex with X I deserve special rights or because my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandma and grandpa were slaves I should get reparations or because I snuck into the country illegally I should get to vote in US elections or blah blah blah blah blah; we live this BS daily because life in the USA is good, we got time on our hands, and it takes a crisis to strip all that bull shit away and bring it down to the basics of humanity, living and dying, being a hero or being a goblin.

The same person who knocked you down in the store to buy that 80% off television on Black Friday will be the same person who rescues you in an earthquake.  The same person you knocked down at a protest will be the same person you risk your life to rescue in the flood.

Face it, on any given day, each person you meet will likely screw you to the ground if it's in their best interest; but after a crisis, they will risk their lives to save the same person they screwed into the ground.

And somehow, I find that reassuring.  Before the crisis, it will be every man for himself.  After it's hit, we will risk our lives to save a stranger.  It's a message to the world, we may be dysfunctional morons, but we will rise to the occasion.  When all is lost, we find ourselves.  We find out who we are and we show the world who we are.  There is hope.

So bring on the hurricanes, bring on the earthquakes, the floods, the tornadoes.  It's the only time Americans shine brightly and can truly be proud of themselves.  The rest of the time we are a nation of idiots.  And maybe the One True God in Heaven knows this.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.


Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,
"As ye deal with my condemners, So with you my grace shall deal;"
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded form the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

Ln the beauty of the lillies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

DON'T FORGET THE BIG DAY! MARK IT ON YOUR CALENDAR! SEPTEMBER 12TH!!!!

That is right, September 12th, my favorite day of the year.

September 12th is National Chocolate Milkshake Day!!!!  Like anything else could compete.

Now I know what some people think, hey, that's cool, I'll have a chocolate milkshake that day.

Bloody Rookies.

That is no way to approach this holiday.  You have to train for it, you have to prepare for it, you have to BE the chocolate milkshake.

That is why I began prepping full out today for September 12th.  Well, actually, I begin training in October, but now the preparation phase is over and it's time to really put the pedal to the metal and get ready for the 12th.

My secret to the best chocolate milkshake?  Raw eggs.  Yep, knock two organic brown eggs into the shake, well, not the shell, and mix it up with organic whole milk, Nestles Quick, and organic vanilla bean ice cream - and two raw eggs.

It's a protein explosion!

So get ready for the 12th, National Chocolate Milkshake Day.

The sad thing is, I'm not making that up, there really is such a holiday and two raw eggs are great in a milkshake.

I am pondering the possibility the Illuminate or Shadow Government doesn't actually exist.  I mean there is no Chamber where  people meet and make these behind the scenes decisions.  I am beginning to wonder if the truth is not even more terrifying.

That the thing we call a shadow government is really nothing  more than the bureaucracy, a bureaucracy so large, so nameless, it just sucks everything in and crushes it to it's desire.  A black hole. The Black Hole Bureaucracy that nothing controls, nobody can change, that every move is automatically countered by the vastness of nameless bureaucrats, lawyers, lobbyists, etc without any discussion, an immune system that treats new ideas, new plans, as a virus that needs to be destroyed.

One side denies it exists, one side insists it's there, neither can point to anything to prove the point but you know it's there, you see it, watch it; swallowing up ideas, taking simple plans and turning it into 3000 page bills that no one understands or reads which allows it to become whatever the bureaucracy needs at any given time.

If the bureaucracy said tomorrow everyone needs their medical ID number from ObamaCare tattooed on the bottom of their foot, it would suddenly appear on page 2,351, paragraph 4 section VXIV.  A silent, unseen, unknown, undiscovered force that controls our government.

See, here is what was kind of missed in the 2016 election, I mean we know it was about change, Trump or Sanders showed that, but what Washington, the media, and others are missing is just how deeply emotionally felt this need was.  Over 100,000,000 voters went to the polls in 2016 understanding how bad things are and realized that the same ol' same ol' was not going to change anything.

So liberalish people jumped on Bernie's wagon and totally outvoted Hillary Clinton's voters.  But the bureaucracy, the machine, was designed to catch it, fix it, for the candidate of the black hole.  I think I'm going to get this right and too lazy to look it up but I think it was California that allowed people to register to vote, declare a party on primary day which millions in CA did.  The problem was those ballots would be hand counted later after addresses names et were confirmed.

And CA declared Hillary the winner in June's primary the very next day.  Then, after the convention, the same day ballot counts were released and Bernie won.

In the election, the founding fathers proved once again their brilliance in designing a system that the bureaucracy cannot overcome, the electoral college.  So Trump was able to get in, the little states and their votes outnumbered the  2/3 of the high population states and Trump goes to DC where he is instantly smothered by the black hole of media, the leaking from every department of either classified info, memos, letters, phone calls to foreign leaders, and out right lies and now Trump is smothered.

And the message, whether you supported Trump or Bernie is clear.  Such behavior will not be tolerated by the invisible black hole of bureaucracy.  But it has not killed that feeling in the gut of America, whether Trump or Bernie people, that hole is in our gut, that little voice in our heads telling us that the point of no return is close.  And we just watch the door get shut.


Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

THANK YOU ZUCKERBERG!

Hi, I think I'm a genius for creating the most insidious social website and can therefore run the country so let me prove to you why we can't make 10,000,000 people who came here illegally go home.

So his company, did a study, and figured out if we end the Dreamer thing, there will be 30,000 jobs a month opening up with no one to fill them.  Over the course of the two years, it will total over 700,000 jobs.

And smart asses like me say?

Thanks Zuck Baby, we've been saying for years that illegals are taking up jobs while Americans are unable to find work.  Holy Crap!  700,000 more jobs opening over the next two years!!!  Get back to work you Obama Economic Miracle Unemployed!!!  Cupcakes cheer!  You can finally quit making coffee and stand around and drink coffee like a construction supervisor!

"But wait", the cupcake whines, "they do the jobs Americans won't do!"

Bullcrap, well, maybe not for Millennials - that might be true - , but not for the rest of us.

Carpenters?  Masonary? Drywall?  Waiters?  Cooks? Painters? Truck Drivers?  Those are all jobs Americans once did and were able to buy homes, raise families, send kids to college.  Before massive inflation and illegal aliens bringing down the wages for those jobs.

I can just see the Government Slogan "You Want to Rebuild America?  Well Now is Your Chance!"
Bring back Rosey! <Look it up imaginary readers, around WWII era>

But here is another point.  The pro open border morons are always saying most of the illegals are hard working people, so if 10M illegals are in this country and sending 10M of them back to where ever they came from, why are only 700,000 jobs going to be freed up?  Let's say mom/dad came over the border carrying one kid, then 700,000 would be 1.4 million parents. Okay, lets say 2 kids and the total population of illegal alien parents and their 2 kids would be 2.8 million, still 7.2 million short of the 10m number which is probably underestimated.

Numbers are not making any sense, someone is lying somewhere.

Sorry, Facebook and Zuckerberg just proved the point for the opposition.  Thanks Zuck!  If you were not smart enough to figure out your study would prove the opposition point, that illegal aliens are / have been stealing jobs from millions of Americans,  you really aren't smart enough to be president.

But then brains were never a requirement for the office, history has shown.
